As Ned Salters, we manage a stable of fighters in the XWF, the Extreme Warfare Federation, where super powered humans beat the daylights out of eachother in the most popular pay-per-view event in the history of mankind!*********Yesterday we have some troubles and the thread didin't took off, lets hope we have better look today
>>29676842Hi hi. Let's wait for 1 more and start. turns out, is really slow to make/update sheets for me now that I am almost blind :P its been a huge pain Anyway, had a good weekend, man?
>>29676873Morning, sorry it took so long for me to show up.
>>29676991Howdy.Oh, I just tried out the sound warning for thread update, it's handyWhere were we.... IIRC were getting Mai to teach english to Mako. I assume we either drive her ourselves or get a company car to take her there. Is not like cab drivers speak chinese, and I suspect she doesn't drive, somehow.Other than that, fast forward a few days (2, 3?) and see what the band members came up with, song-wise?Also, any youtube links to songs you like?When I think of Euphry, I get this feeling...http://youtu.be/n9AcG0glVu4
>>29677036Actually this one is better. Disregard the one beforehttp://youtu.be/rRkc08_dR-0
>>29677036Uhh music? Put me in David Mitchell's camp with people who know dick all about it.We should do some testing of Mako's english by having some some short conversations in english with her, over coffee or tea or whatever people in the future drink. (Starbucks Bubble Cofftea?)
>>29677117Considering this age is meant to be an age of unmatched progress (when the nova age ended, the monkeys burnt the nova tech and began a new dark age again *sigh*) in every field, I want to think that fine colombian-quality coffee is readily available at this timeAlso, I saw this video and thought of Stella looking at Mai's dogs and chuckling as she overhears their conversationshttp://youtu.be/yEwne-IEG9sWell, "I may not know about .... but I know what I like"
>>29677212Anyway******Over the next few days, we keep a loose eye on the band's progress as they actually shift into their serious work mode. All of them have a surprisingly(?) strong work ethic, despite whatever deva moments they may have had on their initial meeting.They do, however, still sit together to hear eachother's ideas and trash them, tho.Mako: "Mister Salter, my english is much more good now" -considering its just been 2 days, it really is much better- "Would you like to cookies with me?"You think she may be inviting you to dinner at her floor. Maybe she just wants cookies from the cafeteria.Aritsu stands nearby as you talk with Mako in your office, with a expression of light amusement.*******What do you wanna say to her?And did you ever told Mai if you are going to her place for dinner or a bad movie and popcorn?While waiting for any further news from the PI team, want to check on Okaba's training? Eldric?
>>29677526She actually drags you to the XWF kitchen and gets you to make charity-sale cookies with her. These may actually sell rather well when the album is released if auctioned to the fans, come think of it.Ami hangs around when she sees you from the dining area, somewhat intrigued.Ami: "I had no diea you could cook, mister Salter"Ned: "Don't tell the guys about this, alright?"Ami: "Well, do you actually have the time for this?"*******Want to ask Ami to replace you so you can check on Okaba and Eldric? (they're at the quantum labs)Anyway, roll 14d10 + 5d10 for what Stella and Bella are coming up with. They decided to work together to make an over arching theme with their combined four songs through the album, using Mako and Euphry as competing voices with Aura as chorus.
>>29677415"Of course."This is the perfect time to help her practice her english, as well as gain some experience 'in-the-field' and not just with someone who's her teacher.
Rolled 2, 8, 8, 9, 8, 2, 7, 1, 7, 4, 1, 3, 8, 9, 10, 2, 4, 1, 10 = 104>>29677570"I'm fine, than you Ami."
>>29677570Let's just send a text to Yamizaki asking for a sitrep regarding our clients.
>>2967759114 successes, that is pretty fucking epic right there, at least writing-wise. Now they just need to record it until they like how it sounds.*******You explain to Mako that treats like these will actually make a much greater deal of money for charity once she reaches international fame if she just auctions them, and that no, you dont think delivery would be fast enough to send the cookies to the orphanage back in China, but you will arrange for "her" children to get fresh cookies anyway.She seems to float as she moves, giving off a motherly aura that just seems to relax people in the kitchen. Everyone ends up with cookies, as all the kitchen staff got dragged into it, so that's all that there is in the menu for that evening tea/coffee time.Her english is amazingly good for something she has only been studying for a few days. She needs some help mixing verbs here and there, but is essentially right on her speech.From the Labs, they send you the updated bios on Okaba and Eldric. Okaba can now "bombard" in front of him as well as under him, so he doesn't needs to be flying to use his feathers as projectiles anymore, even filling a wide area with them, gaining a huge accuracy boost with a massive "spray and pray" attack in the enclosed space of the ring.Eldric is working on channeling 2-3 blasts of white, blue and red wind at the same time right now.Ami: -leaning on the cafeteria counter. dressed in her street clothes- "Mister Salter, do you really think the guys need more ranged attacks? I think they could do learning some floor moves, instead"
>>29677722"A fair point. On the other hand, the top gun competition is coming up soon, and ranged attacks will be at a premium there. Still, some additional hand to hand might be in order."
>>29677754Fine with me
>>29677754that reminds me, Ami, Brass and Python, none of them have any ranged attacks, do they? well python has super speed so he can get up close and personal anyway, and the other two can throw pieces of the ring if need be, I guess?Going to call Mai to confirm if you are going for dinner or a movie night?For now, the band will be busy. The fighters are all training. Want to check on the reality show ratings and advertisement space?By the way, want to get any advertisement deals for anyone?
>>29677845Since when were we going with Mai to dinner?And yeah, I want to take reality show rateings, and see if our more minor fighters can get some advertizing deals.
>>29677864>Since when were we going with Mai to dinner?Yeah, I don't really remember this either.I guess with Ami, we could give her Quantum Bolt and refluff it as fire breathing or something. As for Brass, I've been toying with some kind of long-distance concussive blast if he absolutely *needs* a long ranged attack.
>>29677864I don't remember it either.
>>29677864>>29677903We got invited for pizza when we arranged the language lessons for Mako.
>>29677864fuck my life, sorry guys i got overconfident because the sound alarm had been working right when a new post was added so i alt tabbed and missed all your replies. Reading them now
>>29677864>Since when were we going with Mai to dinner?She asked you if you wanted to go over to her place for dinner or maybe to just enjoy bad movies and popcorn (in real time, it was last week) and someone said sure>>29677903Both of them could "punch" attacks? Ami could punch a fireball, and Brass could just be concussive force. Im just curious if it would count as a kinetic or energy attack>>29678133yep. there it isSo lets see...Want to use Aura's Seduce skill to catch ratings, or something more along the lines of everyone's average on rapport? just so i know what to base them on
>>29678280Use both. We wanted to get our Silver guys over via the show, so keep them involved. Only use Aura's TV-Seduce occasionally (at least enough to keep her 'charged up' - ISTR that she gets ill if she's not sufficiently /e/
>>29678419yep, im surprised ppl remembersAlright, rolling gave me an average of 7 successes, so the reality tv show is on the top 10 most seen shows right now. Of course the XWF itself is so far ahead its basically off the charts anyway, but within the following 9 shows, it's pretty well placed.Want to try to get companies interested in premium advertising by using the guys from the show to do ads that will appear between the 1st and 2nd halves of the show, or rather do product placement?You know, like making sure there's pepsi on the fridge and/or someone is drinking it on camera once per show at least, making closeups of aura's ass to show the label on her jeans (discreetly), etc
>>29678280>She asked you if you wanted to go over to her place for dinner or maybe to just enjoy bad movies and popcorn (in real time, it was last week) and someone said sureOh, damn.
>>29678468I'd rather go with product placement myself, as that would be less likely to break immersion or whatever.But let's try and keep it *somewhat* subtle at the same time.
>>29678527Alright, as usual, roll 13d10 + 3d10 for the deal. How many companies do you want to approach about it, and any specific ones you have in mind?
Rolled 10, 5, 4, 9, 7, 5, 5, 9, 9, 4, 4, 5, 5, 9, 6, 1 = 97>>29678563Well, I don't want to hijack the vote or anything, so I'd like to know if there were others onboard with it.My plan was to, I dunno, pretty much basically rip off The Truman Show, and basically have everything you see on the show as a brand item availible for purchase or whatever.Note that if the consensus is against this plan, feel free to ignore my roll.
Rolled 10, 8, 2, 5, 5, 7, 2, 6, 2, 4, 8, 8, 3 + 3 = 73>>29678563I'm thinking like Wendy's or Arby's for food. It would be hilarious if Ned unseated McDonalds from the fast food throne.
Rolled 10>>29678604>My plan was to, I dunno, pretty much basically rip off The Truman Show, and basically have everything you see on the show as a brand item availible for purchase or whatever.I never saw that, but it sounds interesting. Ppl likes something in the show, they can get it. A bit unsubtle, but also surprisingly honest, I think>>29678615in the fifth element, which chain was it that won the fast food wars, anyone remembers?7 successes and rolling here for explodey dice. Interesting that both ppl rolled explodey diceSo, want to go with everything is for sale, or go with subtle placement?
Rolled 10>>29678695rolling for explodey explodey dice, 8 succeses
Rolled 10>>296787169 succeses... they see me rolling, they hatin. I wonder if all these exploding successes are from getting Aura to showcase underwear or something
Rolled 4>>29678735...uh... really sexy underwear? hell, maybe she invited the girls from the band for a pajama party and they were all on underwear or something? I do suspect Bella and probably Stella dont do "sleeping clothes" tho, if you know what i mean
>>29678695Well I know in Demolition Man the winner was Taco Bell (which was changed to Pizza Hut for some reason.)
Rolled 2>>29678755Alright, so, 10 successes. Want to go with "everything is for sale" ,or just a few placements here and there. Want to have advertising, or have the show be a solid hour?Also its actually a good thing it rolled a 4. I was beginning to think I was rolling wrong somehow. Reminds me of this time I rolled 18 18 18 17 18 18 for a dragon samurai in a Oriental Adventures d20 campaign
>>29678803I think we can do subtle. And I'm not sure we should have everything be for sale. In fact, why don't we have some of our rookies get a contract for advertising for Wendy's. But naturally since they're rookies they're nervous and practice their lines in their rooms...
Rolled 9>>29678878so one vote for "everything is for sale" and one for subtle. Im counting giving the idea as a vote for everything is for sale. I'd like to throw my vote on that side too, but I dont think I should have a vote, really.
>>29678933I'm fine with either.But we're making bank with Aura; Every swimwear/underwear company on the planet wants a piece of that action
>>29678933the idea of practicing for commercials on a reality TV show amuses me, so lets go with that.
>>29678933I'll add another for subtle.
Rolled 7>>29678997Alright so subtle, then. ...can Aura even do subtle?This video keeps being related to this thread, and it keeps being Aura's faulthttp://youtu.be/7uFCgHzaDf8>>29679004I think its a fun idea, too>>29679026Alright lets go with that. Im not sure how we are going to achieve that, tho.Anyway, say, 6 brands spaced through the show? 2 for men's clothing, 2 for women's clothing, 2 for other stuff? cellphones, laptops, whatever we agree to for that episode
>>29679103Something like that.
>>29679103Sure. Did we ever get around to setting up Aura's own line of swimwear and lingerie? I have a feeling that would sell exceptionally well in Japan given her image and name recognition.
Rolled 1>>29679213Not yet but sounds like a good idea. Stop here for today and continue tomorrow? we got the movies with Mai (I'll just type something I think) and then look into that underwear/swimsuit thing with Japan. Ami would do well on that sense as well. Maybe "healthy girl" things like sport clothes for girls and such?
