Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, mutant vagrant. Laura tears her eyes out of the past, slowly turning towards you. You can feel her heart pulsing in her hand, along her fingers, a steady shiver in the warmth of her skin. Her systems cool down, her beat realigns itself. Her eyes swim in uncertain places – she was afraid before, but you don’t recognize their glimmer now. She almost looks a little confused. “Now kisssss.” Bleghcha. You cough up a small chunk of awkwardness and turn toward source of the interruption. Layla sits cross-legged nearby, her grin divided by a pair of comically puckered lips. “Mwah mwah mwah.”Laura slowly retracts her hand, shooting the younger girl a thoroughly unimpressed stare. You sigh and tend to the meal, unable to hold in what you’re sure is an expression of ultimate exasperation. “What?” You’re not sure if Layla is feigning being dumbfounded here or if it’s legit. Either way, you ignore it. “What?” You stir away the rest of the morning making sure you have something edible to eat. Chicken and assorted bits again, but you don’t mind the repetition – your life has become pretty damn unexpected as of late, and something safe and boring is almost a relief. As you eat your portion, you consider the rest of the day. >Present Time: 12:22 AM>Current Funds: $144.05>Hunger Level: 2>[ ] Just hang out in the station.

>>29490406>>[X] You’ve been meaning on finding those Hellion guys.We could really use some heavier hitters. And from what we know they are already against Creeper. Not to mention that they are slightly less odious and likely to try and recruit us afterwards than Silvermanes guys.

>>29490406>>[ ] You’ve been meaning on finding those Hellion guys.They're already going after Creeper. Now we just point them in the right direction, watch the fireworks, and dive in the moment we see an opportunity.
>>29490582>>29490546If your really wanting to do this at least wait until we spill the beans on creeps. Not a good idea right now.
>>29490406>[ ] You sorta had the idea of roughing up a few drug dealers for money.>[ ] You’ve been meaning on finding those Hellion guys.>[ ] This place needs stuff. Maybe a generator, or some torches. Gets dark at night.One after another seems like a solid plan for the afternoon to early evening. Bust some drugdealers for profit and for police to find, find the Hellions and let them know the recent mutant shipping thing was Creeper's deal and what a load of horseshit that was and then getting supplies for our home away from home for now. Maybe invest in a little cart to carry it all in too if we get a generator?We -just- got the job at the Tabbycat, so let's wait until our first gig to talk to Felicia about it and forget even trying to go anywhere near where Kimura's been. That seems too dangerous.
>>29490637I honestly think we might have to resign or at least beg for a sabbatical on the Tabby cat job. Having a hit on out our head is conducive to an unsafe working environment.

IDK if going to the Hellions right now is the best time. (we might botch the diplomacy roll again and we don't need a mugga moment).Also, if we do the interview, the Facility might try to fuck up Mr. Urich....

>[X] Hellions. Well, you guess the task at hand is finding ways to bust up Creeper’s business interests, and possibly his face. You’re sceptical of Silvermane (or anyone else that regulars at the Tabbycat), so that leaves those Hellion douchebags as your go-to busting-upping implements. They were shaking town a charity shop (a charity shop, seriously) when you ran into them, but they’re just kids, not the sleazy hardened criminals of Creeper and Silvermane’s brood. And they’re mutants. And that guy, the big guy, he could probably flip a truck on its back. Getting up, you tell the others you’ll be out for a bit, and head out into the scar. The cold bites, tiny flecks of newborn snow greeting your emergence from the dark, and you pull your coat tighter.

After all, there WAS a clerk right there when they were holding that thrift shop up, who would have heard them talking about you being a mutant and seen you disappear. No telling how he took it, so it's slightly riskier to go back there.

>[X] Head back to that thrift store, the place you first met them.Okay. You don’t know where they’re going, but you know where they’ve been. So maybe it’d be best to retrace both your steps and start searching back where you first crossed paths.You head uptown, out of the scar, toward one of the main arteries that run through Queens. It’s kinda weird, retracing your steps – your nose has been getting better and better, and now everything you’ve seen glows with a different light. Everything’s brighter, more detailed, more strange. You slip through crowds and you catch tastes of their breakfasts, of their holiday flu, of their spouse’s sweat. People are like canned tuna here, all mushed up together, all trailing little bits of one another. It takes you a little over and hour to find the spot you want. You turn up at the doorstep to the thrift store and pause momentarily, considering your approach. Last time you were here, trouble quickly followed in your footsteps. And depending on how attentive the volunteer at the counter was, the staff here may have you singled out as a filthy mutie. >[ ] Go in invisibly, check for anything.>[ ] Go in visibly, question the clerk.>[ ] Write in.

It’s not the same guy (lucky) – it’s some girl this time, wearing fake glasses and dirty green shirt with something about the ‘Arctic 30’ on it. Some band, probably. She’s typing furiously at her fancy touchscreen phone.You cough loudly. She glances up over the fake rims of her fake glasses and sets her phone down, stitching a smile on. “Hi.” Her eyes dart down to your hands, and her brow furrows a little. Are your gloves on? Yep, yep, false alarm. “Can I help you?”“Uh… yeah, you can.” You lick your lips and consider how to phrase this. “There’s these guys that come in here every so often, right? Call themselves the Hellions?” Her expression falters and she steps back a little, her arms rising minutely. “H-hey, look, I don’t want any trouble, just take whatever.” Guh. >[ ] Take whatever.

>[X] “I’m not one of them.”>[X] “I was just wondering if you know anything about them.”>[X] “When did they last turn up here?” “I’m not one of them.” You hold your tactically gloved hands aloft, demonstrating that you mean no harm. And, you guess, that you don’t have a gun or a knife or whatever. Of course, you have ten basically-knives worked into your skeleton, but she doesn’t know that, and you’re certainly not telling.“See? Not gonna hurt you, or take anything.” Even if Laura kinda does need a new jacket after someone filled her current one with bullet holes. And Lucas could do with something heavier. And– “I just want to talk to you about them. When where they last here?” She eyes you with no small amount of trepidation, her arms still raised defensively. You can almost see her thoughts raking backward, scrounging through her memories. “Uh… I guess, like two days ago?” Not very precise info there. “I mean, I think…” “You were here?” “Y-yeah.” Hmm. You consider trying to catch their scent, but you’re not sure you can brush through two days of interference. “You hear them say anything?” Aside from ‘give us your money’, that is. “Anything at all that could tell me something about them?” She glances toward the door anxiously, and then looks you over. “You’re… you’re not a cop.” Damn these ratty hobo threads.

Out of all the things she was expecting from his conversation, you’d bet that dark humour was not at the top of the list. “Seriously though, I’m looking for my cousin.” You pull the lie out of deep memory, like an anchor from the depths. You’re actually a little surprised at yourself. Guess you did learn a useful thing or two from Creeper. You remember him telling someone that, years ago. “They’ve kind of fallen in with the wrong crowd.” Ahh, the ambiguous, mercurial shadow of the ‘wrong crowd’. So good for excuses and scapegoats. Though, not so ambiguous here, you guess. Kind of specific actually. “Oh, uh, yeah okay…” She bites her lip and thinks back. “Well, there were three of them. This blonde girl, and the big guy, and then this black dude…” You think you recognize the first two. The last one, though, is a Hellion you’ve apparently yet to meet. “…Oh! They said something about meeting at the Groves.” “Excuse me?” “Uh, the Groves.” She pauses. You stare, nonplussed. “It’s… it’s a bunch of apartment blocks. Oak Grove, Ash Grove… the Groves. There’s like five of them. They’re just, like, a little East of here.” That’s interesting. >[ ] Say thanks, leave. >[ ] Pick up some stuff while you’re here.>[ ] Ask if she saw any of their powers.>[ ] Ask if she caught any of their names.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Say thanks, leave. >[X] Pick up some stuff while you’re here.>[X] Ask if she saw any of their powers.>[X] Ask if she caught any of their names.“Catch any of their names?” Pays to be prepared. “What about powers?” The clerk nods vigorously. “Yeah, there were, like, mutant powers. The huge guy, he was so huge it was almost a joke, like he was ten Arnies.” She waves her hands in a broad, circulator motion and puffs out her cheeks, this apparently being the only way to full describe how huge this huge guy was. Of course, you know that, you’ve met him. “Like a tank, man. And then black guy, he, like, touched me and made everyone run away.” “What?” “It was like, I dunno, he made everyone in the store run away from me. Cleared the place out.” Huh. That’s a super weird one. You thank her, and, a little sheepishly, pick out a bunch of items for Lucas – a nice warm hoodie – and Laura – this old, thick white jacket with a scorpion on the back. It’s faded to shit and looks like someone had to remove a whole load of stains from it, but it’s cheap as hell. The clerk checks them out with an expression of dazed apathy on her face, as if you’ve officially filled her daily weird quota. You bag your stuff and head out onto the street.

>>29492597Kevin doesn't have control and wouldn't want to dust anyone if shit went south. I'd rather go alone than take him. Gaby is a very uncertain factor, I wouldn't put her anywhere critical right now. We could have her stay close and move in if it looks like trouble.

You head home, dodging the midday crowds that litter the high street and weaving your way back towards the scar. You make it back soon enough, checking the time as you descend the dilapidated steps down to the station. >14:12 PM You titter a little. Where’d the day go? You present Lucas and Laura with their stuff. The former is almost a little too enthusiastically grateful – you suspect that several days in a box, only to emerge into the winter chill with merely a vest and some trousers for protection, have coloured his responses somewhat – while Laura sniffs a little trepidatiously at the jacket, before noting that a great deal of blood has been washed out of it. Apparently that’s fine with her, though, and after explaining to Layla that you have nothing for her and she should never expect anything, ever, you’re ready to set out once more. As you make your way out, you ask if maybe Laura wants to come. You figure she could do with some time away from the depressing depths under the scar, and maybe also would be a real help if things go sour. She considers it for a moment, before rising wordlessly and following after you. >Navigation Check>DC13

>>29492859I believe that his genuine wish to stay out of any trouble could have been helpful. Also his power is equally impressive and pitiful, in case we were ask for our abilities.But the vote had been made, so it's moot now.
>>29493113Yea it's moot but he does have possibility for intimidation. Not sure how good he'd be keeping us out of trouble though. He doesn't seem like much of a smooth-talker and saying you don't want any trouble can harm more than it helps.Maybe we can work with him some, it'd be nice to have more than one reliable person to bring along.
>>29492939>19>Bueno ExcellenteYou retrace your steps again, remembering that the clerk said these ‘Grove’ places were a little east of the store. It doesn’t take you long to find your bearings, the streets slowly becoming more and more familiar, and you soon find yourself heading away from the high street, out toward a residential sweep of Queens. Soon enough you find yourself standing before a faded sign proclaiming “WEL OME O SIX GROV S”. Like many of the places in Queens that you’ve gotten to know, it’s a fucking horrible, grey, depressing hellscape. Six rows of huge, ugly apartment blocks stand like a phalanx against the sky, broad, long untended yards spaced evenly between them. At one point the place must’ve pretty green, but ‘one point’ is not today. A small playground stands nearby, but nobody’s playing. “Lovely.”Now that you think about it, there are six of these bigass ugly buildings, and you’re looking for some very specific people. Where do you start? >[ ] See if you can maybe catch a familiar scent.>[ ] Find someone to talk to. Maybe someone knows a Jules or a Tabitha.

You could drop by for a few questions, but you’re not sure you trust a bunch of random strangers. What do you trust, then?You trust your nose.You breath in, closing your eyes. Six Groves rushes through you, a moving stream of information and sensory fire, breathing as deeply of you as you of it. Dead leaves, old rain, smoke, blood, tires, rusted metal, clogged pipes, strangers, dangers, bird shit, Magpie nearby, tobaccomarijuanaheroinphencyclidine, then something, something out of place, familiar, weird. You open your eyes. It’s faint, but there’s a hint of something that doesn’t belong. The whole place is made of up of a certain type of stone, but there’s a particulate trail of something else, something from outside, wilder, loamy, fresh. You remember the huge guy, you remember this on him, on his sweater.“This way.” You state, almost automatically, your nose driving your legs onward. Laura glances curiously at you for a moment, before following after you. She was right, there was blood on that jacket. Looks good on her, though. You make your way past Elm Grove and Oak Grove and Pine Grove, the scent leading you to one of the entrances set into the side of a block marked Ash Grove.

Crusty is going to reset Layla’s powers and I was thinking of possible substitute powers. I tried to think of ones that have something to do with her the original Layla’s power set. This is what I have so far.>temporarily alter someone personality. (The new personality is totally random)>Turning on and off the capacity to feel emotions of people. (She can’t control what they feel only how strongly they feel. She could turn Kevin into Spock or make Laura weep tears of joy because J.J. gave her the last piece of beef jerky.)>Gives people the ability to live without food, water, air, sleep, etc. Sort of like a Zombie except they are still alive. It doesn’t last forever and make the victim feel really fucking weird the whole time.>She can separate souls from bodies. Basically, induce astral projection. She touches you, your body goes limp and you’re a ghost, and can do ghost things. Layla can still see you though.>Force people to keep their promises. Not related but I like this power.I’ll try and think of more. Other recommendations are welcome.
>>29494203I can see this working. We channeled God before, after all.

>>29493997>21>Suspicious, this is getting suspiciousNose, I choose you! Again! Checking over your shoulder for observers (don’t want to come off as some kind of crazy creep), you lean in to the buzzer, sniffing experimentally. The nasal prints of a good hundred different fingers crawl their way up into your nose, staggering you back a little. You hook out the one you need, though, the one clogged with that alien rock, and grin triumphantly. You have the best nose, yes you do. You push the button, eliciting a low, electric whine from the machine. You wait. You wait for a minute. Slightly deflated, you try buzzing again, a little more urgently. While you wait, Laura clears her throat. “John…?” “Mhmm?” Maybe you need to press harder. Or in groups of three. Or maybe no one’s in and this is pointle– “Why are we here?” You turn to her, all triumph vanishing from your face. You replay the last few hours, and proceed to smack yourself upside the head. You didn’t tell her. You must’ve gotten so wrapped up in all this that you just forgot. You apologize profusely and give her the CliffNotes on today’s objective, explaining that you ran into these Hellion guys a while back and you think they could be a good weapon against Creeper.She almost smiles, you think, and says it’s alright. And, just like that, the door clicks open. Apparently someone is in after all. >[ ] Head upstairs invisible, look around.>[ ] Whatever, fuck caution, just roll in.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Fuck caution. You proceed into the building, heading up the long set of stairs nearby the door. There’s an elevator, but judging by the half-open door, busted-up buttons, and numerous helpful scribbles of graffiti, it hasn’t been in working order or a while. The number on the buzzer was twenty-three, so you’re guessing second or third floor. The place is a mess. Paint’s peeling so profusely, you think you can see about two decades of history fluxing and flowing across the walls. You can smell old, rancid water emanating from somewhere, and occasionally the pipes whine awkwardly behind the walls. As you emerge onto the second floor, your phone vibrates in your pocket, and you pull it out. You’ve got a text from Peter.“Phoned the Bugle they say yes ben wants to get it done soon as possible, he can do tonight 7 onwards” You guess ‘Ben’ is the guy from the Jack story. Huh. Cool.

Someone fumbles with the chain on the other side, and the door swings open. The smell of marijuana and alcohol almost overwhelms you, the air thickening noticeably. You squint automatically, your eyes watering, and through the squint you see a shapely assortment of curves and messy blonde hair arrange themselves into a short young girl. Her hair’s all over the place and her lipstick is smeared, but it’s clearly that Tabitha girl from the thrift store, eyes about 70% more bloodshot and body about 80% more naked. Aside from a pair of dark panties, a bra, and some kind of jacket, she’s pretty much nude. One of the fattest spliffs (seriously, we’re talking table leg league here) you’ve ever seen wobbles from her lips, and a bottle of Budweiser hangs loosely in her grasp. She stares at you with vacant, uncomprehending eyes.“Yurr not doctor doOM.” Dear Lord, she’s so high she can’t even capitalize DOOM properly. “You’reee…” She squints, and some form of recognition passes through her eyes, shock forming on her face. She tips toward you and raises her hand and… and… she tips away… and back again… And then she vomits on your boots. >[ ] Insert Action.

>>29495365>Dear Lord, she’s so high she can’t even capitalize DOOM properlyShe clearly has a death wish. Anyone who didn't would properly capitalize DOOM.Anyway, my suggestion?>[ ] "Get dressed. Oh, and is there anyone else around?"
>>29495403didnt mean to put those quotation marks thereoh well
>>29495365>Carry her inside. >Hang out. >"Don't mind Laura she's just quiet.">Get so damn buddy buddy. >Wait for friends to come home.
>>29495365Help her up, and bring her back to her apartment maybe sober her up
>>29495365>[x] Insert Action.'John James Green. We meet a few days back, at the store. Remember? I'm looking for Jules, he in?'
>>29495365"And here I was thinkign you guys couldnt make a worse impression then when you were knocking off that Salvation Army..."And grimace at our shoes. Were not made of money dammit, good shoes for Hoboing are hard to find!
>>29495365>vomiting while smoking potThat's concerning.>Actions- Calmly help her to a bathroom to finish her oral discharging.- leave Julian somemfucking notes on Creeper assets to target and a list of his personal to watch out for.
>>29495540she's also been drinking
>>29495365"It was a joke... and those were good shoes, dammit. Is Jules here, by any chance?"
>>29495540Why? I barf if I smoke too much, especially if I've been drinking
>>29495365Dude, she must of done like 3 weeds man! >Help her inside and make friends, maybe she'll vouch for us.
Actually we have an interview in a few hoursmight not to be high for that
>>29495643Relax. it's four o' clock tops. The interview is at 9:30
>>29495613ah man she's going to ODhow much weed did she inject?>Weed>NOT EVEN ONCE
>>29495643If JJ isn't a lightweight like Party Girl we should be fine. Pumped but fine.
>>29495683You can't OD but you can smoke so much that you can't move. Then pass out laying on your back before vomiting. You wont be doing that too many times.
>>29495758>Lightweight>Table-leg tier joint and an unknown # of beers>Hot boxed the entire apartmentI don't think she's a lightweight...
>>29495791>smoking so much pot you cant moveHahahahahaha that was fun
I think I have come up with a satisfactory reason why JJ would get interested in photography as a kid.the work of renowned photojournalist and writer/photographer of the awarding book Marvels, Phillip Sheldon!maybe little JJ got to meet him and got an autographed copy even!
Okay. Um. “Hey, uh, I’m looking for…” You catch her as she stumbles forward, very much cutting you off. “I’m…” Softness up against your chest. Perfume. Sweat. Blood, pumping. She somehow manages to stumble again, despite you keeping her on her feet. You glance over at Laura, whose face is a blank void of ideas. You guess this wasn’t covered in tactical espionage school. “Yurr big.” You’ve always thought of yourself as kind of malnourished and weedy, actually, but hey, gotta take them compliments where you can get ‘em. “Okay, let’s go inside…” You help her back into the apartment. It’s actually less of a mess than you expected. The living room smells of all manner of recreational drugs, and there’s a few forlorn pizza boxes hanging around, but somebody seems to be pretty meticulous about dust and stains, at least. You half-carry-half-lead Tabitha over to the sofa at the back of the room and set her down. She burps and takes a swig from the bottle in her hand. Ye Christ. “Anyone else in?” You ask Laura, who sniffs the air and shakes her head. Guh. “Okay, so, um…” You kneel down in front of Tabitha. She promptly breaths a puff of smoke right in your face. Charming. “…Hey, I was kind of here to talk to Jules? You remember me, right?” She stares for a moment, and slowly nods. “Julianssssssss… not herenow.” She glances at a few random corners of the room. Okay. “We got a big TV.” You glance over your shoulder at the flatscreen mounted against one wall. Yes… you can see that they have a large TV. >[ ] Ask her to take a message.>[ ] Leave a written message.>[ ] Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.>[ ] Write in.
>>29495758I think it's less whether we can handle it and more how believable it is that we aren't an unreliable source when we show up for the interview. Also, I'd rather not get stopped by the cops because of how we smell, but that ship's sailed.
>>29495838>[ ] Leave a written message.Write our phone number and that we're the guy from the thrift store who wants to help Jules fuck Creeper over.
>>29495838>[ ] Leave a written message.>[ ] Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.so future us doesnt forget
>>29495838>>[ ] Ask her to take a message.>>[ ] Leave a written message.do both
>[x] Leave a written message.we don't have time this (we technically do but it can be put to much better use)
>>29495838>[x] Leave a written message.As fun as staying and playing some Mario Kart or something would be, I don't think Laura likes the smell of weed.
>>29495838>[X] Leave a written message.tell them to meet at our Park at 9PM tomorrow.
>>29495838write a message to Julian pin it to her tits
>>29495838I'd say stay, but not exactly sure how much good she'll be. Also, seeing all this excess they have is kind of making me hate them, considering how we met them.I vote for Written message
>>29495838>[ ] Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.>[ ] Leave a written message.No drugs, though. Talk to the girl, find out who else is with her and what they can do.
>>29495838>[ ] Leave a written message."Guy from thrift store; I hate Creeper too; Park, 9pm."
>>29495838>[ ] Leave a written message.take a joint for latter
>>29495838>[ ] Leave a written message.
>>29495838>>[ ] Leave a written message."You want information on Creeper? I have more than you do. Come to (whatever our park is actually called) tomorrow, 1 PM."If we're very lucky, this might reinforce the 'worryingly well-informed teleporter' idea they have for us.
>>29495838>>[ ] Leave a written message.>>[ ] Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.Leave if it gets to around like 7 or 8. And they still ain't there. Got to get to the meeting
>>29495838>Write a message>" Shit son, good thing the Creeper doesn't think you're worth his time (Yet) or you'd be down one hideout, and one friend ">"You actually wanna take over this town, or just fuck?"
>>29495963JJ straight edge man, maybe alcohol but nothing illegal.
>>29495987I second this post.
>>29495963just swipe some beer
>>29495838>Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.That's future JJ's problem.And I guess this too.>Leave a written message.
>>29496005I think JJ would be the kind of guy to smoke weed or burn incense for some sensory deprivation shit.
>>29496005Im with this guy
>>29495838>Leave a written message.>Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.
>>29496005no >>29496038like this>>29496009not during winter too fucking cold
>>29496005Yea, I agree
>>29495838Hang out for a litt'e while and watch the news.
>>29495830I think you missed the vomiting while on your back part... The part were you die
>>29496005Fuck Dot! JJ out there smoking weed everyday. And doing bad shit. Mothafucka. Not having a job! And... Man! Making money.
>>29496129I didnt vomit after
>>29496005Not to mention that doing so while having half the town on your back isn't the best idea.
>>29495838>[ ] Fuck, man, hang out for a while. You got time.
>>29496005This. Creeper taught him what happens when you sample the goods.
>>29496194Yeah man, have you seen those people who inject weed into themselves every day?
>>29496194Smack is whack, say nope to dope.the marey-juanas, however, are fantastic.Can you imagine a baked Laura? It'd be fantastic, especially if she got upholstered.
>>29496223A baked Laura would be liable to kill us for touching her. Or even looking at her funny. Bad idea man.
>>29496256I don't think she can even get baked.
>>29496223>Upholstered>Mental image of Laura being covered in couch fabricIs... is that a term for some kind of drug something?
>>29495996>Dis nigga Creeper be tryin to be saying he got shit when he ain't got shit. We rolling up on his shit, yuo fuking wit this shit?
>>29496288No, it's when you get so high you're unable to move and become one with the chair (or whatever) you're sitting on.>>29496256No way. Just find a nice, mellow indica.
>[X] Ask her to take a message.>[X] Leave a written message.“Right, so…” What should you be telling the burnt out half-naked chick? What will stick? “…Can you leave a message for Julian? Or whoever else lives here?” She nods dumbly, staring through you. Hmm.“Okay… I’m the guy from the thrift store, and I have useful information...” You make sure to stress every other word. “…On Creeper. You know, the guy that runs this neighbourhood?”She nods. “You reckon that, that, that scenentists have bigdicks?” “…Sure. Now, I can meet Julian, or whoever, tomorrow, at 1PM. Okay.” Another slow, uncomprehending nod. Fuck it. You get up and fish around for a piece of paper. You find some magazine on games or whatever and embark on a short quest for a writing implement, which you find in the form of a big, red marker. Perfect. You write a short message down for… whoever… and place it back down on the table at the centre of the room. You stand up, glance at Laura, shrug, and bid the drunk/stoned lady good evening. She remarks that she’d like to feel a scenentist’s (scientist, probably) dick, and you take that as her wishing you a good evening too. “Impressive.” Notes Laura, as you roll out. Why, you do believe she’s utilizing humour. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 40: END>Congratulations! You’ve earned an X-Point! X-Points can be spent on stuff, etc etc, list coming up.>Congratulations! LAURA KINNEY is now STEADFAST!>Congratulations! You found the Hellions!
>>29496289it *was* established a couple threads ago that we are, in fact, a big motherfucking gangster.We even said it.
>>29496216Eh, fair enough.Though to be fair I did know someone that tried that with some resin derivative. Said the result wasn't impressive.
>>29496256>baked Laura>liable to kill usweed, not PCP or bath salts anon. it makes you hungry and slothfuland the healing factors would sober both Laura and JJ up quickly, making narcotics a rather fruitless endeavor
>>29496313>Relationship tier 4 achievedTime...For waifus.
>>29496256You, think? The worst I've seen is that people get more confident and like try to make insults more.
Before I throw the X-Points stuff down and archive this thread, I'm pretty much feeling on a roll here, so I'm considering running the next episode in like an hour or something, after a quick break.Would people want that, or would everyone else like a breather?
>>29496324Yeah...you don't mainline resin, you heat it up and huff it.>>29496325Laura's, probably, JJ's probably not, but that's why you roll a few JJs and keep the party going.>>29496313>SteadfastAwww yeee.
>>29496313>Why, you do believe she’s utilizing humour.I think all our sarcasm finally rubbed off on her.
>>29496371I can go all night long for you Crusty ;)
Rolled 19>>29496371I would love to see the next episode tonight.
>>29496371I'm up for anything Crusty also I got an idea for why JJ le gusta photografia>>29495833
>>29496371Oh my god yes please.Everything yes now more gif pls.
>>29496371I'm all up for that, but you should consider your health man. Tea can only go so far.
>>29496371Of course I want that Crusty
>>29496371Yes please. Also what the fuck man? I wanted to chill? I mean Litter Life mane. Butt Fuck Bitch Niggaz
>>29496371Yes. All of my yes.
>>29496371Crusty, you beautiful, beautiful man.I shall be here, glued to my screen in anticipation.
>>29496433I saw it, and it's a great idea that I hadn't considered at all. I think one retcon is enough for now, but as photography is still an interest though not a hobby, that can still be worked in JJ's background.
>>29496371Keep it going.
>>29496371I'm always up for HMQ
>>29496464You don't choose the thug life mugga, the thug life chooses you.
Rolled 17>>29496371Gods yes! More HMQ is always good
>>29496313>Congratulations! LAURA KINNEY is now STEADFAST!Is there anything higher than steadfast?would she sleep with JJ?
>>29496537"Hey, help me unwrap this condom?"*SNIKT*
>>29496481I had an idea as well. The kid could've been given a weekly disposable camera allowance as a...kid.Bingo bammo, problem goes away. Those things were and are cheap as fuck with, like, 30 exposures a roll. Not to mention that they still take better photos than phones today.Cheap and inexpensive way to get a kid behind a camera.I don't know why there was so much buttflustered autism at a kid being a photographer.
>>29496407>>29496433>>29496435>>29496453>>29496458>>29496464>>29496469>>29496477>>29496480>>29496486>>29496493Okay then.HMQ41 will return... very soon.For now X-Point stuff.There are three types of powers you can purchase in Homeless Mutant Quest! CORE POWERS, which are the bread and butter of your powerset, SECONDARY POWERS, which are additional abilities or powers from other sets that are also appropriate to yours, and TERTIARY POWERS, which are powers only tangentially related to yours. All can be purchased and levelled, but Tertiary Powers can never be maxed out. Powers have five levels… except when they don’t.The powers currently available to you are:CORE POWERS:>Invisibility Lvl5>Enhanced Senses Lvl4SECONDARY POWERS:>Enhanced Agility Lvl2>Claws & Fangs Lvl2>Adhesive Touch Lvl2>Electrostatic Touch Lvl2TERTIARY POWERS:>Enhanced Strength Lvl3>Healing Factor Lvl3There are also EXTRAPOLATIVE POWERShttp://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhYou have one point to spend. First level powers cost one point, second level powers cost two, and so on. The exceptions are your Core Powers, which cost one less than usual.
>>29496537Don't you meanWill she hold our hand intimately?
>>29496371YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!
>>29496537No waifu'sLaura too pure for that.
>>29496588Wait...there's nothing we can buy right now, so...bank?
>>29496588Can...can we even afford anything?
>>29496588Well, we can't actually purchase anything, so bank it.
>>29496588Can we even afford anything?
>>29496626>>29496645No, it was just a formality.THINGS MUST BE DONE PROPERLY.
>>29496588>You have one point to spend.We can't buy anything with one point. The only one point power have prerequisites we haven't met.
>>29496371Best news I've heard this week!
Ah yeah, we're going steadfast with Laura. It's like going steady, but faster.
>>29496603>Laura >too pureLol good oneNext x-point we get >Electrostatic Touch Lvl2
GIANT SIZE HOMELESS MUTANT QUEST!DOUBLE ISSUE!TWICE THE LENGTH AND GIRTH!!!
We should buy the level 2 claws nextthere are a lot of good extrapolative mutations that use it
>>29496763Harder! Deeper!!! FASTER!!!
>>29496588>http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhWe need to save up and get echolocation, seems bloody useful.
Thread archived. Vote an' stuff.Normally I'd be around for questions now, but seeing as we're having a double issue today, I'm taking my quick break. Could be half an hour, could be an hour, could be a little longer. But HMQ41 will be up tonight.Stay lizard, true believers.
>>29496811why? the next level of enhanced senses lets us see perfectly in the dark
>>29496603In 616 Canon she was a prostitute. Might not have been true here, but I doubt she's pure.
>>29496848Jesus fuck, why are all faggots who post with a name so fucking dumb?Echolocation/sonar/ultrasound construct a three dimensional image of the space/volume occupied.
>>29496848We already do that, we get psuedo Spidey sense.
>>29496848We can already do that. We could do that at level 1.
>>29496858Seduction is but one of many espionage tactics she was undoubtedly taught.TBPH, I can't see her excelling at it though.
>>29496883And how would that be useful to us
>>29496603>Laura too pure for that.I like her too but lets be serious here
>>29496603Laura's seen some shit, Anon. She is not pure.
>>29496838Will do Crusty, your quest has the best Inviso Lizard on the board. JJ would dance circles around the Fedora Wearing Magic Chameleon Antagonist in Evil Precure Quest.That is not a slight against EPC Quest, Which I also love.
>>29496909For some reason, I picture her as threatening the guy with decapitation unless he performs sexual intercourse on her.
>>29496910Daredevil senses have their uses
>>29496964"Okay, okay. You can out the cakes away, just...just tell me which hole you'd like me to f-ah! Okay, that was out of line, lesson learned."
>>29496964I now imagine she would also use exactly that awkward of a phrasing.
>>29496848360 degree line of sight that can see around things.
>>29497011Phone auto corrected misspelling of put the claws away into take out the cakes....wtf is this phone tech bull shit wizardry?!
>>29496964"Put it in me or *SNIKT* I put these in you."
>>29496964>"DO SEX TO ME!"
>>29496973That does seem to have some usesbut its quite expensive and if theres no open windows/doors/grates its not useful
>>29497064And JJ laments finding that trigger scent accidentally for all of a few seconds
>>29497091Imagine how tight she would get when you used the scent on her though
Alright guys, enough fetishizing.
>>29497162It's okay, our healing factor can deal with it...Right?
>>29497217Bigger and better than before!
>>29497239We have the technology!
>>29496964I remember a pic of wonder woman bent over in front of some guy saying; "Shut up sperm bank and put it in already!"
>>29497239>Pic related. JJ a year from nowOkay, I'm done. I swear.
>>29497214Do you even know where you are right now?
>>29497090There is the whole seeing around corners and hidden things part.
Half-way through page 9 now
41 is still happening right Crusty sempai?
>>29498138Hasn't even been an hour yet.
>>29498154in 5 minutes it will be
>>29498174He said 00h30 to 01h00+
>>29498174maybe he's waiting for the thread to die so he can post op image because he didn't think of just opening it in paint and save a copy as a .pngor maybe he's just getting tea
Just looked at the archives. There an awful lot of purple that needs to be gold.
