Howdy guys, starting earlier today, just hop in and let me know when you are here
>>29847041>>29847065I'm gonna be a bit slow today since I'm working on something else at the same time. Where were we...?Uhmm... going to check on the band and then probably a business meeting to start deciding on the "plot" for the new season with the rest of the executives at the XWF
>>29847114Guys? want to do something else, or checking and then the meeting? do you have any plans of your own or plot ideas for the season? you know, like "In the Omega division, we have Brass duke it out with the heel fighters and "turn" a few of them to help clean Omega as he did Gold"
>>29847457Oh, uhh, I thought that what was currently in progress, and what you were typing out right now...
>>29847457Checking first. As for plot ideas: Brass and that Lucha guy team up to clean up Omega division. Aura and Okeba's story line is that they are hear to clean up the XWF of Teragen filth (plot twist being that they actually are doing that. People will never see it coming). Python's storyline is as mentor of Ami, and master of a new style of nova eastern martial arts that he has combined with his boxing (maybe add the disrupt power delivered by a punch to the node strike). Ami is the new kid on the block, probably takes some shots at the Ex champ. Paladin has a "discussion" with Ami's "ex boyfriend" for amusing rivalry. Oh, and Ami, Python and Paladin play "will they or won't they" with their doubles pairings.
>>29847676I like all of that except that Python is very public (has no reason not to be) with his relationships and the audience may not believe he has something with AmiHonestly wouldnt that work better with Brass, if only because Ami has this one sided thing for him? the rest seems great
>>29847676Works for me.Does that mean Python stays in Gold another season?I love that idea of Python combining his Pressure Points technique with his new Nova-Fu and creating Dangerous Forbidden Technique #24 aka the Node Strike, aka Nerf Punch. It's the most perfect finisher-setup in existence
>>29847778I meant doubles pairing, not romantic pairings.
>>29847778Wasn't Python dating that Utopia security lass who hooked us up with those psi-shield cufflinks?And yes, Paladin x Ami is the tease for this season. Expect Aura to be gently trolling him in her spare time
Rolled 3, 4, 7, 5, 10, 3 = 32>>29847810yepWell, obviously, Bomber Lord's manager wants to push for another season of his fighter pummeling everyone, and the manager of pretty much everyone else also wants the same.Roll 11d10 + 3d10 for trying to convince them. It will take at least 3 successes over what they get. Rolling theirs
Rolled 7, 9, 8, 2, 2, 2, 5, 8, 10, 2, 7, 7, 10, 4 = 83>>29847899
Rolled 5, 1, 8, 9, 7, 7, 9, 2, 2, 9, 9, 2, 5, 10 = 85>>29847899
Rolled 9>>29847899rolling explodey dice, but it doesnt looks like Ned will have problems with it
>>29847939I do believe we may finally have mister Bomber's attention.
Rolled 1>>29847927Success. You manage to convince them of your plan for the new season, but the meeting ends when Bomber Lord's manager has a strokeMr Carlson: "B-but Lord is the heart of the leag-- oooh god.. no!"You can feel a burst of quantum energies coming from the man, but of course, noone else was able to. Due to the man's stroke, the meeting will be restarted in a week, when he recovers, or a new manager is assigned to fill his shoes.
>>29847980Hmm... make a note to tell Okaba, Mai and the authorities about this incident. Also, warn our doctor do her medical examination very carefully.
>>29848023Alright, hold on...Ren (the doctor) has 13d10 + 6d10 medicine. Want to roll for her chance to find any tampering with the man and/or heal him, or should I?
Rolled 8, 9, 8, 9, 10, 1, 7, 3, 7, 4, 10, 3, 9, 8, 4, 8, 7, 3, 5 = 123>>29848057
>>29848057She isn't one of ours, so you roll. Thanks for the offer though.
>>29848057Reminds me, we should schedule a meeting with Ren, Python, That Quantum company we work with and Miss Clone. Topic of discussion: Qui Meng and increasing accessibility of taint reduction treatments.
>>29848062Yeah that's more than enough. She can treat him, but since he's a regular human and thus much more fragile and slow to recover, it will take the man at least 2 months to make a full recovery.Ren: -as she talks with you in the privacy of her office- "As we feared, I found evidence of a induced stroke on mister Carlson. I was not aware Bomber Lord could do such a thing, but his energy is all over the man. I will record this, but am not sure if such will be admisible in court, mister Salter"Indeed, laws are still foggy about "super powers"
>>29848154"Of course not. But it was foolish to assume Bomber would not be seeking to enhance his own powers. And the information will be useful in preparing a defence against him. Thank you, Ms Ren."
>>29848197As you arrive back at your office, you find a wooden box on top of your coffee table. It has a note from Mako, and carries hand-made cookies. Chocolate and vanilla, some with cream.Aritsu: "Boss, how did the meeting go?"What now, check on the band, talk to Mai, something else?
>>29848154I always went with an active expenditure rule when it came to legal implications of mental powers. If you bed five women because of your mega social swag you're a schmuck, if you bed five women because of mental powers you're a criminal
>>29848242Check band. Tell secretary about the incident
>>29848343Guys, like I said earlier, today I have stuff to do so I'm going to be replying rather slowly as of now. I got visitors.******You check to see which band members are at the XWF building right now, and are somewhat (if pleasantly) surprised to see that they are all in the premises, actually. Who do you want to talk to? select 2 or 3
Actually, if Bomber can now incapacitate folks from a distance, we need to make sure our guys and gals are safe. We can't discount the possibility that BL is onto us.Can we invest in biometric monitors for the band, the fighters, and the staff? Something tied into an emergency response team who can get them medical help in seconds?
>>29848414Sure, sounds well within our resources. Ren can probably get you in contact with a medical supply company
Mai, Quantum girl.
>>29848409In case you were waiting for options (i thought you may remember by now, tho), the musicians areAleksanderAuraBellaEuphryLyannMako
>>29848557Mako and Lyann.
>>29848594Yes, we must thank her for the cookies
Rolled 5, 10, 7, 7, 2, 6, 8, 9, 9, 4, 8, 4, 6, 1, 3, 1 = 90>>29848650heh, this is her cooking roll, btw. With a specialty in desserts because the children love dessertsYou find Mako sitting outside in the gardens, resting under a large tree, dressed in a long soft-looking dress, with her glossy black hair pulled back into a high ponytail with colorful flower accesories down its lenght.She is sitting/cuddling against the tree as she writes down in a small notepad. You'd think such a beautiful girl would be harrassed by leechers and what not, but the security staff does an excellent work of filtering such out, or perhaps people just doesn't dare disturb the peaceful-looking girl.She doesn't notices your approach, and if you peek a look at her notepad, you see she is working on lyrics (in chinese and english) and trying to come up with something that sounds similar in both languages
Rolled 6>>29848742With 7+ successes, the cookies are good enough to bring people to tears as they think of their moms, grandmas, kindness, and the spirit of xmas JUST BECAUSE
>>29848760Incoming bakery franchise
>>29848742this a prompt?
Rolled 9>>29848779Im reminded of this ooooooold Garfield tv episode where Johns grandma's lasagna gets made into a franchise.>>29848800Not sure what a prompt means, sorry. Im not a native english speaker so some words elude me if they haven't come up before. You mean, like a script for a show? if so, yes.
>>29848811a prompt is a >wat do?basically, do you want a response?
Rolled 1>>29848826ah, yes
>>29848742"Hello Mako. Thanks for the cookies."
>>29848742Thanks for the cookies
Rolled 5>>29849041>>29849016well that was lazy of you guys. I really want to make a :P face but I know it is frown upon on 4chan, yet you earned it :P*****Mako lets out a little cry as you snap her out of her thoughts. She quickly stands up and straightens her skirt while you pick up her pen and noteboard for her.Mako: "M-mister Salter!"Ned: "I told you to call me Ned"Mako: "I... I could not... it would not be proper..." -softly-Ned: "Whatever makes you happy. The cookies were delicious, so, thankyou. What were you working on?"Mako explains to you her songs ideas. Since she now has access to such talented comrades, she is planning a complex piece with a full orchesta. and a easy listening one for the younger audience. Her ideas seem nice, and you are sure you could see a disc or several built around nothing but them.Mako: "I want our music to be good feeling for everyone"Ned: "Enjoyable. You mean enjoyable, not good feeling. It's just one word."Mako: "Enjoy-able" -she says, embarrasedNed: "Good enough. I am sure it will be. Hace you spoken with the others about your idea yet?"Mako: "No... but, we all said yes to following each other instructions on the songs we are in charge, yes?"Ned: "Let's hope it goes as well. I need to go check on Lyann now, alright? You are doing a great job"Mako: -nods- "Thankyou mister Salter. It is always enjoy-able to speak with you" -the blue-eyed beauty says, holding her hands in front of her lap, squishing her notepad against her.-cont-
>>29849249Lyann is working--- the Lyann are working on the main studio. They are forming a full orchesta, and the music flows through the hall as an unreal, fae-like melody, the instruments copying and reproducing the sounds of a enchanted forest to the last conceivable detail, so much so that you hallucinate of a primal forest for a moment, and need to remind yourself of where you are in order to send the image away. The experience is immensely enjoyable, but more than a little eerie on its intensity.Walking towards Lyann (since she is directing, you guess she is the original), you are interrupted by Lyann as she places a hand on your shoulder. She was actually sitting and watching and taking notes.Lyann: "Ned, what brings you here?"Ned: "Ah, just checking on everyone, wanted to see how you were doing." -after a brief pause- "You remember you are meant to add everyone else into your performance, right? you can't just fill every position for the theme"Lyann: "Everyone is busy with their own songwriting, but don't worry. I'm just tuning the instruments right now."Ned: "that's how you tune the instruments?"Lyann: "sure, Ride of the Valkyries serves the same purpose, too. Is just that most people don't know it. But Ride is too long, and I prefer quicker, smaller melodies which use every instrument, instead."Ned: "I see... then what do you have so far?"She proceeds to describe you a extremely complex arrangement of melodies, themes, songs, overarching themes and scenes for the next 15 minutes. It sounds extremely exciting, but you have to shut her down to remind her she only gets two themes of the disc.Lyann: "Oh... right. Well, I will think of something. I guess I can snip here and there, and..."If her "two themes" scalated into a full epic, you decide it would be a good idea to check on her more often to make sure it doesn't happens again.Ned: "Just... try to keep it brief, please."Lyann: "But... but... "Ned: "Please"
>>29849444Lyann: "Three themes! I could cure blindness with three themes!"Ned: "We have medicine for that. Two"Lyann: -you had never seen an angel pout before- "...b-but it is medicine..." -she looks at you as you cross your arms and stare her down- "...fine. I'll just.. I don't know, cure tummy aches and raise the intelligence of unborn children, then."Ned: "Thank you"You feel you may have done a bad thing, somehow.******Stop here for today? I have to go to lunch. Will come back in a couple of hours to check on the thread and respond/comment to your posts as usual
>>29849523Oh god, that's hilarious. You ever figure out what her other powers are besides clone?
>>29849554Her "only" power is clone, but min-maxed as far as the rules allow, with quantum mastery 3, to multiply its effect by 100 times so she can make up to 500 permanent clones instead of 5 that last for a single scene, at nearly no quantum cost.She's basically like a bard specced as a skill monkey. Can't fight to get out of a paper bag, but that's not what she is meant to do.
>>29849701Doesn't mastery three require quantum 10? Lynn "only" has 8
>>29849830I meant 2, yes.I just think it would be a funny running gag if she could constantly do huge things for humanity but we kept "shutting her down" for whatever reasons
>>29849975Lyann: "And this painting can cure cancer!"Ned: "It's too big. I told you the lobby wall was 12 x 5"Lyann: "Oh... I... guess it will just stimulate creativity or something, then. Just need to cut a meter off each side..."Ned: "Thank you"
>>29849975>>29850007Cool with me. Fair warning: I think I will spend her XP to get the Quantum Supremacy: Quantum Enhancement with a permanency enhancement and a touch weakness and then use it on Ned. Don't worry, I won't use Quantum transformation though.
>>29850007Doesn't she only have 2 dots in medicine though? I mean, her attributes make her awesome at it anyway, but its not what I was expecting
>>29850142Eh, but her clones are perfect copies of her. The clone power as it is printed in the core rulebook says her clones have 1 less dot of everything per clone, BUT the errata' d version says theya re perfect copies minus the clone power, AND that they all share the same quantum pool.Even if she only has 2 points in something, with her base attributes and say, 40 of her working on something, thats still a lot of brainpower being thrown at a problem. Or at whatever fancy thing she may be thinking of.
>>29850241I more meant I would expect her art to do other non-medicine things usually, since that is what her focus is.
>>29850241Coming soon: Humming-powered jeeps. Humvee, for friendsNed: "There's a humvee already, tho"Lyann: "Oh, nevermind, then">>29850275I couldnt think of anything that would be as funny/meaningful. Suggestions accepted
>>298502901. Anyone who listens to her song gets an understanding of Aristotle philosophy.2. Convinces everyone that their religion really does preach tolerance and acceptance, rather than blowing other people up, solving the middle east crises.3. Teaches everyone who listens to it a new language, ect.
