Thankfully, you seem to have intimidated them enough that none have come back, and in return the mall manager helped open up a performance slot for you at the mall's open stage. This could be the big break you were looking for!As such, you've been focusing your idols on memorizing the set list. Ushiyama had his work cut out for them, but by the end of the week the girls at least did not look like drunken rhinos trying to knife fight each. Progress, you guess.>Julie, Rochelle, and Cole have learned Dancing 1!(cont)
>>29787003However, that didn't mean there weren't any problems to take care of. Right now, you were looking at your idols' latest physicals. Rin and Cole were in good health, and Julie only had a few bruises that still hadn't quite gone away. However, your biggest issue was Rochelle. She took a few bad hits during the fight with the delinquents, and ended up with three broken ribs. Looking at the reports, you see that her ribs had mostly been healed, but you were hearing conflicting reports from Ushiyama that Rochelle was visibly lagging behind in practices. This was a huge concern, because the performance was scheduled to take place in a few days, and there was the real possibility that Rochelle would have to be cut from it if she couldn't pull her weight.You think about waiting till the last minute, but you remember that the current choreography was set up assuming all the girls were present. If you cut her now, you'd still have enough time to modify the dances...>Cut Rochelle from the performance.>Hold off on the decision for now.>Get a second opinion.>Other
>>29787010>>Get a second opinion.
>>29787010>OtherAsk for Rochelle's opinion.Ask the dance trainer's opinion on how would cutting Rochelle affect the performance?
>>29787010>>OtherAsk Ro if she feels she's up to it, or just waiting this one out and pulling security.
>>29787010>Get a second opinion.
It seems the Idols of Clover Entertainment have successfully defeated the gangers of Delta City Mall and are now planning a concert. Normally, this would be no problem as we hire gangs to stake out an are through our subsidiary branches as a way to measure an Idol company's strength.The real concern from this is the fact that the idol known as "Cole" has gained a sense of "morality". Here to discuss her newfound morality, Dr. Rotsneatitpierce.(Con't)
>>29787010>>Get a second opinion.Ask Rochelle, and ask our medical lady if there's any short-term remedies.
>>29787010>Cut Rochelle from the performance.Unless this performance requires a security team or a third/fourth dancer, I see no reason to have her.Bench her and tell her there is always next time. This won't be the first time we'll have to bench someone.
>>29787010>Get a second opinion.Both from Ushiyama, and whoever the medical professional that's taking care of Rochelle.
>>29787139(Cont'd)Before joining Clover Entertainment, Cole was fighting for survival in the Tombs where she survived by trusting nobody but herself, essentially becoming, and pardon my language, "a selfish b-[guitar riff]". But now with comrades and a basic understanding of teamwork, she has gained a sense of morality via empathy.Had she not taken teamwork training under the tutelage of "The Producer", things would have turned out very differently during the fight.The ability to tell right from wrong combined her anti-authoritarian attitude can lead to devestating consequences. Her fans would see her as a champion of the disenfranchised, rallying them together and becoming a force that armies around the world cannot stop by drowning them with sheer numbers! With Cole as the Queen of the Swarm, the masses will easily follow!
>>29787189This Cole girl has me concerned. Our preliminary investigation shows she's an escapee from a military biotech firm. Top of the line electromaster.She'll be a major asset if we don't eliminate her quickly.
>>29787237No...Project Greene isn't ready yet. Allow Cole to rally her pawns, she will be our puppet leader of the ignorant masses while we continue our plans collecting more gene samples from retiring Idols. Until the Blacklight Project...No...Alex is ready for her debut, we must wait...

>>29787307Maybe have the group help her out by using peer tutorship?
>>29787266what is ocelot doing in an anime?
>>29787003>Cut Rochelle from the performance.As long as it won't damage her morale too much, it's best for her to rest for next time.
>>29787139>>29787189>>29787237>>29787266>>29787321You know, we should do something like this every so often as a recap for what happened over the last couple of threads.
>>29787010>Get a second opinion.>Ask herBe ready to bench her if she's not feeling up to it on the big day.
>>29787327That could work, since INT would help with them learning songs/dances faster and with strategy.(also would help upgrade Cole's electricity.)Also maybe the data center could be used to teach them, but that is a big maybe.
>>29787139Rochelle Wade, the cutest thing you'll never see.Cole the Electromaster, not your waifu pika pi~.Julie "Justice McJustice O'Malley McCloud" D'AubignyAnd... Rin Shibuya.Gentlemen, that's all we know.
>>29787010>>Get a second opinion.Checking out her Morale shows that she would be trying the hardest, so i don't want to out her out until we get hers and other peoples opinions.

>>29787139I am going to have a real f-(guitar riff)ing hard time coming up with even more absurd names...
>>29787307they all look decent we just need to improve julie and coles int so that they can learn quicker, have julie improve her ag stat so she doesn't lag behind in both the battlefield and dancing, have rin improve her STR to give her better stamina.Rochelle can do what ever she wants to upgrade.
>>29787467She needs to get Cole to play NV so the two of them can quote Fallout together.
>>29787545I wonder how popular vintage vidya is in this era?
>>29787595Depends on whether Neo-Hipsters are a thing or not in this day and age.
>>29787139>>29787237>>29787441Holy crap, my sides.Cole would totally be fucking shit up in Ukraine.>>29787010You decide that you want to get a second opinion on this first before you decide on anything too rash. Filing the physical reports away, you get up from your desk and head out into the hall.>Talk to Ushiyama first.>Talk to Rochelle first.>Consult the AutoDoc.>Other
>>29787595I'd actually assume they'd be fairly popular. They're cheap, probably less than five dollars, and easy to get from digital distributors.We all got old music on our mp3 players. Same idea.
>>29787545>>29787595You guys do realize that FPS game age poorly.
>>29787622>Consult the AutoDoc.Let's get an objective answer.
>>29787622>Talk to Rochelle first.
>>29787622>Talk to Ushiyama first.
>>29787622>>Consult the AutoDoc.
>>29787640That's getting less and less true.HL2 is a decade old and still looks like it could have come out this year.
>>29787622>>Talk to Ushiyama first.>>Consult the AutoDoc.
>>29787671That's because the source engine keeps getting updated.>>29787545Holy crap, I play the same character, but wearing the burning man's armor
Now that you think about it, even though Cole has no armor, she makes for a good Shocktrooper (all puns intended).
>>29787622>>Consult the AutoDoc.First, then talk to>>Talk to Ushiyama second.then finally ask >Talk to Rochelle last.
>>29787622>Talk to Rochelle first.Tell her not to give you any "I'm fine, boss" crap. There is always next time and we can advertise the next performance as her debut. Broken ribs are serious, especially to someone who needs to use her lungs a lot.
>>29787622>Consult the AutoDocGet the Machine's opinion.
>>29787706PROFICIENCIES: Melee 1, Lightning 1, Singing 1, Dancing 1, Coordination 1 TRAITS:Lightning: Cole has the power to control and manipulate electricity. As she increases her proficiency or INT, she will discover new applications for her power.Thundershock: Cole can performe a ranged or melee attack, even when unarmed.You do have a point since she has the best stamina and strength, plus the best dodging.Also she could be the best dancer.
>>29787715I like this the most.
>>29787622>Talk to Rochelle first.>Consult the AutoDoc with her.
>>29787767wait she got thundershock before quick attack? what the hell?
>>29787622>Consult the AutoDoc.Just a bot, but it's the closest thing to scientific, medical opinion we'll get.
Quick question guys, we're we going to have Rochelle do a campaign for that weapon seller and if so how do you think her dropping out of the performance will effect that deal?
>>29787622>>Consult the AutoDoc.I would have preferred a real doctor ,but people wanted a councilor for some strange reason when in reality we should have gotten her after our first successful gig instead right off the bat.
>>29787862>>29787823>>29787622>Consult the AutoDoc.i wonder if there will be at some point we can hire a real doctor to fill this spot, as well as the other unmanned spots?
>>29787622When I wrote that first bit, I had no idea the riots were going on. What a coincidence, huh?
>>29787862I thought it was important to have the counselor establish a relationship with the idols early on, so she would be better able to figure out if the idols were putting on a front.Plus, the physical part of doctoring is much easier to automate than the psychological; docs are pretty much very well-trained auto mechanics.>>29787923Pretty certain the answer is "when we actually have money to do the hiring". It's important, I just thought the counselor was more important.
>>29787923Absolulty. But right now money prevents us from hiring more staff+idols. We need to start making bank
>>29787862I think they thought the girls would be more affected by this emotionally(even though 2 of the girls were from hell, one was a military brat so their emotional state about fighting people were gonna be good.), about being trained fighters, but forgot the setting was in a cyber punk world where mass shootings was a common occurrence.
>>29787622You decide to consult the AutoDoc first. It might not exactly be the smartest thing around, but it was capable of making objective observations, which was about all the good it could do other than take x-rays and dispense pills."AutoDoc." You say, grabbing the wall mounted machine's attention. "Summarize information for Patient Rochelle Wade.""SEARCHING." The AutoDoc rumbles. "DATA FOUND. PATIENT ROCHELLE WADE SUFFERING FROM THREE BROKEN RIBS AND MINOR INTERNAL BLEEDING. SUGGESTED TREATMENT IS REST AND AVOIDANCE OF STRENUOUS PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR TWO TO THREE WEEKS.""And if instructions are not followed?" You ask."DISTINCT POSSIBILITY OF RIBS HEALING INCORRECTLY OR EVEN BREAKING AGAIN."Hmmm, you frown. that didn't sound good at all.>Talk to Ushiyama>Talk to Rochelle>Talk to Lillith>Other
>>29787948which is why i said after our first successful gig, since by then they would start getting attention, and we should have the money to hire her.Also she even said her self that she was being used as a band-aid so that proves that she works fast.
>>29788034>OtherBench her. We're not having this injury become a long term problem.
>>29788034>Talk to Ushiyama"How much would the performance be impacted if Rochelle was benched next performance?"
>>29788034>Talk to Lillith
>>29788034>>Talk to UshiyamaWho was Lilith again?
>>29788034>Talk to UshiyamaI imagine a dance instructor would know how to deal with this, we're likely to bench her I'm thinking
>>29788034>Talk to UshiyamaTell him that, while the auto-doc isn't the greatest thing in the world, you really don't want it to become a bigger problem.Might be possible to get her into a static singing role, if she's somebody we'd plan on having sing.
>>29788034>>Talk to Lillith>>29788090The councillor
>>29787974Or maybe it's because the setting is a Cyberpunk society that most people think a human doctor is moot, since they were running under the assumption that, being the future, automated medical science and biomedical technologies surely surpass a human touch, and that we could simply slap Medi-Gel/Biofoam/Not-Bacta on anything.
>>29788034>>Talk to Ushiyama
>>29788153Why deal with a doctor when you could have a machine tell you why you're sick and what meds to take?Most people don't ever have to deal with serious injury that would actually require a human doctor.
>>29788153In the cyber punk settings i know of the doctors were always the best around, and were used to handling everything.
>>29788204you mean like breaking three ribs?
>>29788204And that's exactly the sort of mentality that's left us with a psychological counselor and an E-Z Doc.
>>29788034>>Talk to LillithWell her input would be useful as her job is looking out for their welfare.Though I'm reminded of how futile doing anything is when the dice luck is bad.
>>29788271Hey, the autodoc fixed that and gave it's prescription. And most people will never break their ribs at all, which is my point. Why go to a human doctor when you have the sniffles?
>>29788153To be fair, 99% of the time, doctors are glorified auto mechanics, and rarely have to stretch their intellect. The biggest problem with automating medicine is that human doctors are far superior at dealing with bullshit from patients, and convincing them "yes, these pills will help. Take them."
>>29788304Because this is the idol business where being sick is bad for the job, and she is also a battle idol.
>>29788337You misunderstand. I'm justifying the existence of an autodoc for the general public, not us not hiring a doctor.We'll need a doctor. Joe Everyman just needs an autodoc in the corner to write him a sick note.
>>29788299Mental welfare.With her around, cutting rochelle from the performance shouldnt be a problem.
>>29788324>doctors are glorified auto mechanicsFor some reason this irks me, a lot.
>>29788448well I'd like to hear how this might affect Rochelle mentally.
>>29788034>>Talk to Ushiyamahe knows his shit.
>>29788475...disappointed?Its not like we're subjecting her to invasive surgery or something that will cause trauma.
>>29788034Your next stop is the dance studio. None of the girls are scheduled to practice here right now, so the room is empty with the exception of Ushiyama. He's waring earphones, and with his eyes clothes, seems to be scribbling notes and sketches on a notepad, as if he's visualizing what movements to make to match the music."Um, excuse me, Ushiyama, but can we speak for a moment?" You say, making sure to speak a little louder to overcome his earphones. "Oh, Producer." Ushiyama turns off this music. "I assume you're here about Rochelle?""That's right." You nod. "How did you know?""Please, ever since that field trip, I can tell she was struggling with her lessons." Ushiyama says in a huff. "I'm impressed she was able to make it this far with broken ribs, but I have no desire to see a promising idol destroy herself before she hits her peak.""You've seen this happen before?" You frown."Many, many times." Ushiyama sighs. "I've seen idols try to get through dances with broken legs, sprained ankles, spine injuries, and worse. Most of these end in various ways, and too many, far too many result in the idol crippling herself for life.""Why would they do that?" You blink."I just teach idols to dance, not to think." Ushiyama shrugs. "Speak to Lillith about those matters. But if you want my opinion? Bench Rochelle, at least until she's fully healed. It'll be a simple matter for me to modify the choreography for three idols instead of four.""Okay, I'll think about it." You nod.>Talk to Rochelle>Talk to Lillith>Other
>>29788528>Talk to LillithThen>Talk to Rochelle
>>29788528>>Talk to Lillith
>>29788470As far as I know (though I suppose part of it is my dad's specialty in internal medicine), most cases he gets are routine, and he knows what's going on quickly, or at least what tests should be done. I suppose I should retract "auto mechanic", though, as there's a lot more to his job, like dealing with all his stupid patients and the really bizarre cases he gets every so often.>>29788528>Talk to LillithGet a little support for when we have to tell her she's benched.
>>29788398i think the problem is in the software. unless this setting has V.I.s or near A.I.s, a human doc can see a situation that out of normal that would throw a auto doc off, but he would see the real problem and fix it.
>>29788528>Talk to Lillith
>>29788586Not the anon. You mean more like a "Troubleshooter"?
>>29788528>>Talk to LillithI was hoping he could change the dance to have her be less part of it and have her do a duet part, but ok.>>29788586Its all good, i have a good friend who is on tract to try and to become a doctor.(though he is thinking of changing it to something else thanks to how retarded Obama care is with doctors.)
>>29788528>Talk to LillithShe's our counselor right? She could help us with approaching Rochelle when we tell her to sit it out.
>>29788528>Talk to Lillith>Talk to RochelleIn this order
>>29788528You head down to Lillith's office. Perhaps your counselor could help shed some light on things."Rochelle?" Lilith blinks when you ask her what she knows of the girl. "Well, I've only talked to her a little, but most of what I know is from her file." "Okay, but what I really want to know is what happens if I bench her? Psychologically, at least.""Hmmmm, that is quite troublesome." Lillith frowns. "And the fact this would be her debut performance makes it even worse. She'd be under a lot of pressure to perform well, and just cutting her out would communicate to her that she's not good enough, regardless of whether that was your intention or not. ""Is it that serious?" You blink."Well, it depends on the mental health of the particular idol, but I'm sure Rochelle is tough enough to take the hit to her ego, at least just this once." Lillith sighs. "But, considering how she performed rather poorly in the ambush on those mall ruffians, she'll think any decision you make will be based on that failure.""So... do you have any suggestions?""Other than benching her? I'd say give her something to do to distract her. A side job or something that will make feel she's contributing. That should mitigate any emotional damage she might feel.""Thanks, I'll figure something out." You grin.As you leave the hall, you phone rings, and seeing that the caller is Jenner, immediately answer it."Producer, the costumes are in. I think you should come down and check them out." Jenner says.>Sure thing I'll be right there.>Actually, I need to talk to Rochelle first.>Other
>>29789047>Actually, I need to talk to Rochelle first.
>>29789047>Sure thing I'll be right there.this could give us an idea about her job.

>>29789047>Actually, I need to talk to Rochelle first.Fuck the costumes, we need to talk to our seriously injured idol first.Perhaps something to do with K-Zwolf?
>>29789047>Sure thing I'll be right there.Ask Jenner if she has any ideas. I think giving Rochelle a singing job, minus any dancing, would be a good idea.
Rolled 1>>29789047>>Sure thing I'll be right there.We can harsh it out with Jenners on what we can give Rochelle to do.
>>29789047Actually, this>>29789099has a good point. Changing my vote from>>29789144
>>29789047>>Sure thing I'll be right there.Jenner might give us an idea on what job to give her.

>>29789047>Sure thing I'll be right there.We can talk with Jenner about what side-job we can give Rochelle.Maybe doing security or sniper overwatch in case those punks try to crash the concert.

>>29789047"Sure thing, I'll be right there." You say as you rush down to the garage. Once to get down, you see Jenner unloading several boxes from the van."Are these it?" You say, looking at the boxes."That's right. All specifically sized for our idols." Jenner nods. "There's actually two versions. The first one is pretty decent, but the second version is... a bit racy.""Huh?" You blink."Here, I'll show you." Jenner rips one of the boxes open and takes out a costume. "Here's the first one."Well, it didn't look too bad. It was a green and white costume consisting of a short sleeved, form fitting shirt and a skirt that ended just above the knees. It was a serviceable, if not modest and safe, design."And here's the other one."Jenner takes out a second costume, and you can immediately see the difference. The shirt has basically been shrunken, with the collar line lowered to show off more of the wearer's chest, and the bottom raised up to expose the wearer's midriff. The skirt was shortened as well, barely reaching halfway down the thigh."You can understand my reservations about the second costume." Jenner says flatly.Well, you're pretty sure the more revealing costume was bound to get attention, but then again, you were pretty sure your idols weren't going to like it."So which one will we be using for the performance?" Jenner asks.>We'll use the more modest one.>We'll use the more revealing one.>Other
>>29789496We already gave her a robohound, why don't we just teach her to run over watch?

>>29789522>We'll use the more modest one.>OtherLilith suggested that we give Rochelle a side job. Any ideas?

>>29789588Kindly go fuck yourself.
>>29789522>We'll use the more modest one.>Other: Ask about Rochelle's situation.If future Detroit's idol fans are anything like Japan's idol fans, they'll probably want purity or some shit like that anyways.
>>29789597I was thinking it would look like this, but the skirt being a bit longer.>We'll use the more modest one.>OtherSide job idea help.
>>29789656I'd imagine their are various factions in the idol fan community.Some favor purity, others don't.
>>29789646Its the truth of the business, plus i'm not saying we go down that route completely, but they would be doing swimsuit shoots and commercials in the future.>>29789656This is america where for some reason everything that has to do with sex is banned unless it has to do with music, so they would care more about a catchy tune.
Don't forget, the costume also has to pique the viewer's imagination. Show too much and it's boring, show just enough and the audience will wonder what it is really like.
>>29789665So we're following the normal Diva Cycle? Start out modest, get sluttier as time go by, peak in sluttiness, the mellow out into something that's not quite modest but not quite daring?And where down the line do we shoot up on dope, snort cocaine off of girls' breasts, crash cars, and go through the swinging door that is Celebrity Rehab?
>>29789656While true up to a point, we'll need a Mikimiki eventually. You just can't have a major idol production company without at least one or two on hand that can turn the sex appeal up to 11. I don't see that from any of our current roster though.
>>29787640>You guys do realize that FPS game age poorly.You mess with the bull, you get the wang!
>>29789522"The modest one, no debate." You say quickly."Good choice." Jenner nods approvingly. "I'll uh, 'properly dispose' of the other set, then.""Also, Jenner, I need to talk to you about something." You say."Yes?""I'm actually thinking of benching Rochelle from the performance. I don't want to risk making her injury worse.""Understandable." Jenner nods. "What's the problem, then?""Well, I don't just want to leave her at the office to stew. Shouldn't there be like, something she can do that will make feel like she's contributing?""Hmmmm..." Jenner puts a hand to her chin. "We could always put her on overwatch duty. I don't really expect anything major to happen, but the extra security would be nice and she'd have something to do. Oh yes, and there's that photo shoot we promised to Marc, to help promote his story. Since we'll be at the mall anyways, I'm sure we could send Rochelle over. She seems to be the most into Marc's merchandise anyways.""Huh, those aren't bad ideas. Thanks, Jenner.""That's my job."Well, you suppose you'll have to talk to Rochelle now.You make your way up to the dorms and knock on her door. Rochelle then answers the door. "Oh, hello, Sir." Rochelle blinks.>Start off slow. Ask how she's doing.>Go straight to the point. You're going to have to bench her.>Other

>>29789845Well, I don't see Delta city as having any strip clubs or prostitutes--all that rabble got pushed out by OCP during their cleanup campaign. We might be able to find a high-class hooker that could fit the bill, though--or hell, maybe there's an upper class gentleman's club we could peruse for their talent?
>>29789904>>Start off slow. Ask how she's doing.

>>29789904>Start off slow. Ask how she's doing.If she protests just gently poke her side where her ribs were broken.
>>29789904>Go straight to the point. You're going to have to bench her.She should be able to handle it.
>>29790071don't fool your self. it MIGHT look sparkling clean on the outside, but the filth and corruption can be found on the inside, be it behind closed doors or in the minds of the people. And it can run deep as well. a perfect cyberpunk setting.

>>29790205Did you even read the first few threads? It's clearly stated that there's both ordinary slums, and super ultra slums called the Tombs, where the corporations literally just built over those sections of old Detroit that they couldn't outright bulldoze.
So its agreed that she is doing the photo shoot correct?
>>29789904"Hey, Rochelle, I was just dropping by to see how you were feeling." You say innocently."Ah, well, just a bit under the weather but otherwise I feel fine." Rochelle nods."I see, I see. So you haven't had any sort of complications from your injuries?""Well, I guess a bit, but I've been working hard!" "Well...">Tell her you have to bench her.>Don't bench her.>Other

There's alternatives available, however...">>29790260Never saw a consensus. We can ask her which one of the two options (security of photoshoot) she wants to do.
>>29790271>Tell her you have to bench her.But do it gently. Explain that it wasn't her fault. And then tell her you have another job for her. I suggest the shoot with Marc since it is separate from the other girls and won't let her stew over any idea of "failure"
I've never felt more disappointed in myself as a fatheru...
>>29790271>Tell her you have to bench her.>OtherTell her that we need her on overwatch duty and to also get ready for the photo shoot with Marc.Also, is she still going to attend the dance rehearsals, or can she spend more time at the firing range?

>>29790271>>Other"Okay, Ro, here's the skinny. I've talked with that EZ-Bake Oven we call a doctor along with the counselor. They've all noticed that you've, well, been having difficulty keeping up with the routines.What I'm trying to tell you, I guess, is that maybe it would be for the best if you didn't go up there. I wouldn't wanna risk your ribs for just twenty minutes of some song and dance, after all. But that doesn't mean I'm benching you--no, we still have a few jobs left.We're gonna need some security--just in case those ruffians come back or someone decides to screw with us. Kiddy gloves are gonna be coming off for this one, so I'm hoping that firearms training did you some good. Think you can handle pulling security? I promise--next gig that comes up, you'll be part of the song and dance team.
>>29790429Supporting cause its well-written and covers all bases.
>>29790378we can do both.>>29790362can't we?
>>29790429I want her to do the shoot since we were told not to over exert her, plus we still have 2 combat idols and a mech dog.
>>29790468I've got to agree
>>29790429Sounds good, maybe switch out that last part with the photo shoot instead though.
Rolled 1>>29790506She can do the shoot.With the Dog.
>>29790429...Ehhh, something about this write-in erks me.
>>29790533Thats a good idea since that would increase her appeal and spread our image, plus not forcing her to over exert herself.So would we be including the as part of the idol group?
>>29790271"Rochelle, I don't know any other way to say this." You sigh, putting a hand on her shoulder. "But I'm afraid I have to bench you from the performance.""W-what?" Rochelle blinks. "But I'm totally fine-"You then jab Rochelle in the ribs lightly, causing her to flinch and wince and pain."You are NOT totally fine, Rochelle. You're not going onto a stage until you're 100%. Is that clear, soldier?""Y-es sir." Rochelle mumbles, obviously down."Hey, don't take it so bad. There's plenty of other things you can do." You say reassuringly. "Like, handling security, in case something goes bad. And you remember Marc? We also got a job with him, too!""W-well, I guess it's better than sitting here doing nothing...." Rochelle sighs."So, which job would you prefer?" You ask."Well, you're the Producer, right? Isn't it your job to make the best decision?" Rochelle cracks a slight smile.>Put her on security.>Have her help out Marc.>Other

>>29790582>Have her help out Marc.Let her play with all the new guns and gear. Like walking around with new guns while wearing her idol outfit and advertising for Marc's place.

>>29790582"I think you could help out Marc. At least you'll be able to play around with all his toys." You grin. "Plus you can take K-Zwolf with you.""Really?!" Rochelle beams."I don't see why not.""A-alright, I'll do my best then!" Rochelle nods. "Oh, and I'm sure me or Jenner will be keeping an eye on you, but if Marc tries to make you do something you're not comfortable with, well, I'm sure K-Zwolf can persuade him otherwise.""Don't worry, I don't he needs to be ordered." Rochelle laughs.And the days pass. With Rochelle now out of the performance, Ushiyama changes up the choreography, and it's crunch time to get Rin, Julie, and Cole up to speed.In almost no time, it's already the night before the performance. Even though it was pretty small scale in the whole scope of things, you feel like this is going to be the biggest event of your life. The pressure and anxiety is certainly starting to build up.

>>29791048You decide to go check up on the girls. However, as you're heading up to the dorms, you hear a very, VERY loud racket coming from the common room. Curious, you pick up the pace, and see all four of your girls sitting around the TV playing video games."So I guess this is your way of handling the anxiety?" You grin as you approach."Ha ha, I guess." Rochelle chuckles. "It was sort of my idea. I mean, we were all getting pretty nervous, though Cole and Julie were having it the worst!""I'm just so excited and nervous at the same time!" Julie shudders. "I'm not sure how to feel!""I'm not scared." Cole grunts unconvincingly."You totally are! You totally about to cry!" Rochelle grins evilly."S-S-SHUT UP OR I'LL FRY YOUR STUPID GAME!" Cole whines."Hey! It's vintage!" Rochelle blubbers. "I'll smack your staticy ass if you damage it!""Don't worry, I used to feel like this ALL THE TIME before auditions, but you get used to it." Rin adds in.Meanwhile, K-Zwolf, who is just lounging in the back of the room, raises its head to see what's going on, and seeing that Rochelle wasn't in any particular danger, lowers its head and goes back to "sleep".>Might as well stick around a bit.>Ask you you can play.>Go talk to someone else.>Other

>>29791588There's a difference between Arma, and giving complete rookies basic gaming and situational awareness advice.THATS what i was more aiming for.People don't often look up, or down, and forget about other things in their inventory.Cole especially could benefit from Noobies Introduction To Gaming, considering she's never ever actually played a handheld, much less a console before.Anythin to increase dat int score bro

Considering Rochell's experience and Julie's natural aptitude for games, you weren't too surprised. At this point, it came down to whether Cole or Rin would end up the loser. In fact, it comes alarmingly close, but Cole manages to edge ahead of Rin by one kill after Rin blindly blunders straight into her line of fire.And Cole had a rocket launcher."Awwww, I was never good at these sort of games." Rin grumbles."You know the rules, Rin." Rochelle says. "Hand it over.""Good luck, Producer. I'll be rooting for you!" Rin says as she hands you the controller.You'd be lying if you said you hadn't ever dabbled in games. In fact. you played quite a few when you were a kid, and they were a great time waster in the army when you were just sitting around in base. However, you were completely unfamiliar with this absolutely ancient system.

Alright, so does anyone have any idea as to how get Rin some skill in coordination with the other idols? I'm worried that if we focus too much on the 3 combat idols, Rin would be missing out.
>>29792800She still needs some sort of defense training.I want her to learn Krav Maga.

>>29792818This. And maybe a little bit of self defense.

>>29792921HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAWE FAIL EPICALLY
Rolled 10>>29792921Being Producer is suffering
>>29792921I WARNED YOU BRO I WARNED YOU!
>>29792921Ahahahahahaha.This is perfect and exactly what we deserve.At least we're burning the bad luck now.
>>29792921We just can't beat these girls at anything recreational.
>>29792921Set up mines.Forgot where we placed them.Run into them.
>>29792921Poor Producer. He can't help but embarrass himself in front of the girls. First the singing & now this. I guess he'll only really shine when he has to kill/beat the ever-living shit out of someone himself.
>>29793021we can say we lived in a military family as a child
>>29793021We only do well when it comes to fighting them
Golden opportunity to teach Cole to not be mad at video games.We chose the most imba character, picked the most dickish strategy, and, when we lost, we had fun.
>>29793073We are such a good fatheru.
>>29792921Unfortunately, you realize too late that the point of the game was to get kills, which you can't exactly get by sitting in the corner. Rather than run blindly into your mines, they're content to just starting blowing each other up.With your hand forced, you kill yourself trying to run past your own mines and die a few more times due to the spawn points simply being littered with mines. The whole game turns into an explosive slugfest, and you do pretty well, but the lead the girls picked up over you proves to be insurmountable."Ah, guess I sort of misjudged what would happen." You sigh as you return the controller to Rin."Well, that's what campers get!" Rochelle grins. "But still, it was fun, even if you did choose Oddjob.""Lesson learned." You laugh and shake your head. "Anyways, be sure to sleep early, girls. We've got a big day tomorrow.""Sure thing, Producer!" They all say.---And just like that, it's already time for the performance. You're with Rin, Julie, and Cole in one of the mall's prep rooms. They're already changed into their costumes, and their time slot is about to come up. Plus, you were lucky enough to nab a weekend slot, so there's TONS of people out there.You see your idols trying to deal with their anxiety, though in different ways. Rin just closes her eyes and takes some deep breaths. Julie keeps reciting her memorized song lyics, while Cole just keeps fidgeting uncontrollably.>Say anything to your idols?
>>29793117make a loud noise to get rid of thier nerves.
>>29793117They'll get time at the range if they do well today.
>>29793117Do the clapping hands things for the girls.
>>29793117>>Say anything to your idols?"Let's do this for Rochelle!"
>>29793117You all may be nervious and to be honest I don't know what you are experencing at the moment but I want you to know that you worked hard and I'm confident you all do well
>>29793117Just tell them that we have faith in them. They all worked hard for this and we are already proud of them, no matter what
>>29793117It's ok girls, everyone gets nervous their first time. The only ones not nervous are either not prepared or insane.
>>29793117>>Say anything to your idols?Remember: if you mess up I have to go out & sing and we don't want a riot.Don't say that. Please, god, don't.Give the usual spiel about believing in them and that they've trained hard for this & that they're ready.
>>29793117"Alright girls, let's do this. You've been prepping for this; now just do it like you practiced."
>>29793117do the hands in go team bit
>>29793117You clap your hands loudly to grab your idols' attention."Listen up, girls, this is, our very first performance!" You say. "We've been practicing and training relentlessly for the past few weeks to prepare for this, so I believe... no... I KNOW that you can all do this! Remember your training, and you will get through this! Remember this moment and cherish it, because I guarantee you, someday in future, you're going to be on a world tour or doing the Superbowl halftime show, and you're going to look back on this moment and go 'heh.'"This seems to bring up your idols' spirits somewhat."We'll do our best, Producer" Rin grins."Yeah, and if they don't like us, I'll punch them in a face!" Julie nods."Heh, you almost make it sound fun." Cole smiles wryly."Ladies and gentlemen!" You hear the intercom blare. "Please give a round of applause for the idols of Clover Entertainment!""That's the signal, girls! Go go go!" You yell. Putting on their performance faces, the girls rush out to the stage, smiling and waving. There's some sporadic applause, but for the most part the shoppers are just walking past the stage, more concerned with their day's shopping rather than the idols on the stage. Hopefully that would change.The first song up was "Starfall Stream", pretty much a novice piece. It wasn't too special, but it was simple to learn and dance to. Of course, most of the focus was on Rin, with Julie and Cole hanging back to support her.>roll 1d20
Rolled 2ALL ABOARD MY FAILBOAT!
>>29793408>THANK FUCKThere ya go.
>>29793398Rin manages to hit the notes and the moves. Due to the size of the stage and the choreography, she doesn't actually have to do that much moving around, so she can really focus on the music while Julie and Cole provide backup.By the time the song is finished, there's a slight crowd milling around the stage, and you notice a few passersby taking pictures. Looks like it was working.Normally, the plan was to just do one song ever few minutes to give the girls a break, since they would be performing throughout the day. However, you feel you've gotten your claws into the shoppers, and you don't want to risk losing them.>Keep going.>Give your girls a break.>Other

>>29793588>Give your girls a break.

>>29793621This. Even for rather novice bands, audience interaction can make their audience ardent followers.
>>29793683Well...if you put it that way, I guess this also counts as audience interaction.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFURd_EOIuU
>>29793683Yeah. Nowadays, savvy entertainers use social media to keep in touch with fans.
>>29793588"Hello everybody! Thank you for listening to our song!" Rin says happily. "We'll be here throughout the entire day if you want to hear us again!"There's some sporadic applause, but it's noticeably stronger than before. "And remember, if you're interested in us, just search for Clover Entertainment!" Rin continues and gives a teasing wink."OH MY GOD." Cole gasps as she finally steps off stage. "I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA DIE OUT THERE.""The song wasn't THAT hard." Julie frowns, wiping some sweat off her brow."No, I just get kinda freaked out when lots of people start staring at me." Cole coughs."Well, as an idol, that's a good thing!" Rin says reassuringly."Where I come from, getting stared at means you were about to get beaten up." Cole grumbles."Well, you made it through just fine!" Rin pats Cole on the head. "Just do what you just did in the next song and we'll pull through!""Good job, girls. We'll be back up in five minutes." You say. >Stick with the girls for now.>Go see how Rochelle is doing.>Other

>>29793839"Hey Jenner, let's switch off. Mind keeping an eye on the girls?""Sure, I'll be right there." Jenner responds."Alright girls, I'm going to go check on Rochelle." You inform them. "You want me to tell her anything?""Yeah, tell her to knock em dead!" Cole nods."Tell her to do her best!" Rin nods."And that she looks way hotter with a gun than any other accessory." Julie adds in."I'll be sure to tell her that." You laugh. You then see Jenner enter the room. "Rochelle's pretty much acting as Marc's mascot right now. It's actually really amusing to watch." Jenner gives a slight grin. "You should see it at least once.""Thanks, I will." You nod. "Okay girls, just keep it together. Do things just like you did on that first song and you'll do fine!"You then exit the back room, trusting Jenner to handle things in your stead. You head over to Marc's store, where you see a small crowd gathering. Sure enough, you see Rochelle, decked out in one Marc's military outfits with K-Zwolf in heavy support mode, showing off all the cool guns.>roll 1d20

Rochelle says, holding up a pistol. Instead of gunpowder, it uses electrical impulses to fire 9mm at high velocity. Has semi automatic and three round burst fire modes and comes with a built in 2x scope! Yours, if you want it!""And um, " Rochelle brings out another gun, an SMG this time. "T-this is the Cyclone! 50 round magazine, with full automatic fire! Guaranteed to clear an entire room in seconds! Yours, if you want it!"Unfortunately, it doesn't seem she's able to grab the attention of the shoppers. You think part of the problem is that she's just not showing enough confidence, which is why people were ignoring her. Julie then sees you watching her and she pauses, taking a deep breath.>Time out and give her a pep talk.>See if she can pull herself out on her own.>Other
>>29794556>See if she can pull herself out on her own.Just give her one chance. If it doesn't work out, >Pep talk.

>>29794607Actually, this is a really good point.

>>29794891We still can coach her.
>>29794819Again, Julie only seems to have middling success grabbing shoppers' attention. At this point, Marc comes out and waves Rochelle to come inside the store, and you decide to follow her in."Boy, tough crowd." You say."I know!" Rochelle sigh. "Doesn't help that I sort of locked up out there. I mean, talking to friends is one thing, but large numbers of complete strangers? Totally different.""Well, you can't win them all." You shrug. "Though I thought you were only supposed to be doing a photo shoot.""Well, Marc had to grab his camera so he sent me and K-Zwolf out front to try and attract customers." Rochelle shrugs. "Not too big of a deal." "I see." You nod. Marc then returns with a camera in hand."Okay, we're just going to take a few glamour shots. Pick any weapon off the shelf and just pose with it however you want. Casual carry, battle mode, anything will work!"You watch as Rochelle does various poses with various weapons. In a few, she does a shot with K-Zwolf either loyally sitting be her side, or doing more "dynamic" poses such as leaping in midair or howling. One pretty amusing one is Rochelle posing to try and fire a K-Zwolf while it pounces on her."Good, good, these will make excellent posters and ad space!" Marc grins. "Thank you so very much. If you have any need for more weapons, you know where to look!""Well, I can't say it wasn't a learning experience." Rochelle sighs.>Stick around the store for a bit.>Let's go back to see how the others are doing.>Other

Bye Mr. Marc!"With that, the two of you make your way to the stage, with K-Zwolf dutifully following you, though he seemed to be drawing his fair share of attention due to the fact of being a robot dog armed to the teeth.As for the show itself, it looks like the Idols weren't doing too bad. There was quite a crow around the stage and they were cheer pretty loud as Rin, Julie, and Cole begin showing off their moves as the pace of the song starts to pick up."Um, Sir, we might have a problem." Rochelle nudges you and points to the crowd.Mingled with the shoppers, you can see some very familiar faces. A couple of those were the delinquents you had beaten up! However, while you had no qualms fighting these delinquents, you did have problems about doing so in public, which was not exactly the smartest thing to do.>We need to take them out.>Hang back and see what happens.

It's role is defensive in nature, reducing the need for recon, and there are a lot of situations where greater combat skill is likely to come into play. It can't hurt to have a heavy hitter on the team after all, especially since we don't have any other heavy hitters.
Can we not aggro the punks? Just leave them alone. If they want to do vengeance bullshit, well, that's what Julie and Cole are on stage for.
>>29795496Best to prevent things from getting that bad in the first place, a machine gun dog is very persuasive>>29795483I think for performances we should have a friendly machine gun dog, it will intimidate wannabes and present a threat to the more serious threats

>>29795364Rochelle starts to charge forward, but you put a hand on her shoulder to hold her back. No sense starting a commotion here now. Best to just stand back and wait and see what they're up to. Finally, the idols finish up their current song. As usual, they do a little post-song thank you, and the delinquents start to move up the stage. You start to tense up and are ready to move in when the delinquents reach into their pockets......and take out pens and pieces of paper as they clamor for autographs from Cole.Wait, what?It seems Cole is just as confused as you are, and just gives them a funny look before bending down and fulfilling their request."Thanks a lot!" One of the delinquents beams."Yeah, you were really awesome! Nobody's ever beaten me up like that before!" "WE'RE TOTALLY GOING TO START A FAN CLUB!"Cole just sort of laughs nervously as she tries to comprehend just what the hell is going on.With that little piece of business over, the show continues to go on.>roll 1d20

>>29795592By the time the day is out, your idols seem to have picked up quite an audience. They weren't exactly bringing the building down, but you could tell that people were definitely starting to talk about Clover Entertainment now. With any luck that awareness would filter out to other venues.As the mall comes to a close, Rin, Julie, and Cole are absolutely bone tired. In fact, they literally fall asleep the moment they pile into the van, and don't even bother changing out of their costumes.
