Revenge of the typo.Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pokemon%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/GobbleQMPokemon, items, and summary: http://pastebin.com/tSNKt0WmFAQ and general concepts: http://pastebin.com/Ht1Q5E1p General rules: There is a 10 minute voting period after each post, and 5 minute voting period for combat votes. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible. There are occasional roles to keep things organic, but mostly it goes by voters choice. Unless specified otherwise, the best of 3 rolls is the result, and rolling high is good. Write-ins for all votes or always welcome and encouraged. Put your own spin on it, suggest dialogue, add an addendum, or anything else. Just because some options specify to write in, doesn't mean that they aren't welcome for anything else. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in. Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as it comes up.-----It's your last one. If this doesn't work, you'll have to battle it all the way down. Zappy Dan looks like that hit really took a lot out of him. Trunks wasn't able to use Leech Horn successfully, so you'll have to hope for the best here. "Pokeball! Go!"You've got a good arm on you. The ball sails through the air. Even though Gyarados has some distance from the ship now, it's clearly going to land.Gyarados sees it coming this time. His mouth opens wide and he swallows it. No way!Despite that, the ball still connected. He vanishes! Yes! There's a small splash as the Pokeball hits the water. It sinks beneath the waves. You think you can still make out the ball, but it's hard to say if that's really it. Your eyes are validated as there's a small flash of light beneath the waves.(continued)
>>30104665Am I late?Oh, good, I'm on time.Ahem.>Three-way investing
>>30104665>>30104704Gobble,I need to ask you something...Are you... EGO?
>>30104665Oh shit we're caught a Gyarados? Are we going to dive after it and get horribly poisoned again?
>>30104764We have a full team. It got beamed to a PC.
>>30104665Gyarados does not reappear. You caught it! Since you have six Pokemon already, it must have gone into storage. You'll have to check out the PC the next time you're at a Pokemon center. You turn your attention to Eddie and Vance. To your surprise you see Eddie attempting to catch the Gyarados that they're fighting. Eddies Pokeball connects, absorbs the Gyarados, and drops to the water. The Pokeball he threw is a different colour, and floats on the waters surface.It wiggles once, then twice, then finally clicks."Yes!" Eddie announces. His excitement vanishes when he realizes the ball is still floating out on the water. "Does anybody have any Pokemon they can use to get that Lure Ball?">Send Destiny to get it>Send Vlad to get it>Do nothing. Not your problem>Something else
>>30104751I'm the guy who initially coined the three-way investing thing a couple threads ago. I just happened to be stalking the Twitter group today and saw Gobble post. Figured the sooner we address the quest memes, the better.
>>30104802Send Vlad. Destiny would probably get her ass kicked by the Magicarp.
Send destiny and vlad
>>30104802>Send Destiny to get it
>>30104775I do not undestand how that works, like why cant trainer carry more pokeballs like normal person (plenty of that in anime) and 6 be limit in battles
>>30104802>send Vance out to get it
>>30104802Vlad seems the better choice.
>>30104870"Vance!""Wut?""Sic 'e-""No! I am fucking TIRED OF YOUR SHIT!"
>>30104802Vlad>>30104896>Implying we can't control Vance with hypersexuality.
>>30104802Send both, they can work on their teamplay while at it
>>30104868Probably to do with storage systems and making sure trainers follow the law. It's sci fi.
Awh yeah niggaWe got a Gyrados now.Who should we switch him with when we go to check out our new pokemon?
>>30104967Motherfucker is staying in the PC till we have a badge that lets us control the giant snake made of rage.
>>30104967No one since our current team is fine and he won't listen to us.Getting that gyarados was retarded
>>30104984NopeAbra a shit
>>30104984I think we should cover our weaknesses and switch out Destiny when we go to inspect our new Gyrados, not that we'll abandon Destiny and keep her in the PC forever like I do in games.Also maybe release Magikarp.
>>30104896Crap he's too high level...
>>30104967Nobody. We're giving him to a Professor to examine it. Or trading it for something we like.We're going to raise the Magikarp we caught first because it knows a move that doesn't suck, and is already close to evolving, and we caught it fair and square instead of having a team gang up on it, thus likely increasing its loyalty and respect.I REALLY don't get what the fuck is so hard to grasp.
>>30105073People see giant monstrous hate-snake and think "UNLIMITED POWAH!!!"
>>30105039Yeah, I think we should release the magicarp now and apologise to it.Gyrados is gonna be our unruly pokemon though.
>>30105073No we're not, just because you're still mad doesn't mean we're getting rid of it.
>>30105014This isn't the game, there's no rule that says it won't listen to us.
>>30105129Ursaring would beg to differ.
>>30105196Ursaring doesn't listen to Vance because he doesn't have confidence, and he's still making progress with it without any badge.
>>30105129In the game, the badge thing is only for traded Pokemon. It's to prevent your friend from trading you endgame stuff at the first gym. Something you catch and raise yourself will always listen to you.In the story, it's much more likely that he won't listen, because it makes for a more dynamic story. If Ash's Charizard had been loyal, it would have required a lot more suspension of disbelief as to why he didn't use it to smash every fight.
long time lurker here just now caugh up. Gotta say Gobble, i love this quest, dont go Vedibere on me.
>>30105129And anyway, the evolution happens at level 20, and in some games one badge means pokemon of level 20 will follow you. Others have no restrictions through level 30, if memory serves.
>>30105073I agree, pic fucking related.
Could Robin's pokedex scan the Gyarados while its in the pokeball?I want to at least look over its stats/move list
>>30105225>In the story, it's much more likely that he won't listen, because it makes for a more dynamic story.I do agree with you there, and I doubt it'll all go fine and dandy, but Kat still doesn't know how it will react to us. Plus, even if it's not our best friend there's no reason why Kat would give up on it.
>>30105276Plus, flute powers.
>>30105261I was waiting for that pic since first magicarp popped up in this quest.
>>30105098Except it's pointless because we have a Magikarp that knows a fairly powerful move.If we pick fights with like... a bug trainer or something, it should evolve in no time.
fuck you guys, we keeping the Gyarados and we are going to name him Garydeal with it
"Vlad! Go get that ball!"Since he evolved into a Golbat, he's even faster. Despite his extra size, he moves gracefully in the air and grabs the ball with his mouth in a swift motion before it's able to float away. As he skims close to the water, you see a tentacle reach out and try to grab him. He's already passed over it before it had a chance. He returns and drops it in front of Eddie.Eddie dives to grab the ball before it hits the ground. "If that landed the wrong way, it could have been really bad." He wipes the spit off of his hand before offering it to you in a handshake. "Thanks. I'm sorry about what I said earlier. Words just slip out sometimes."Vlad gives your face a gigantic lick.>Shake his hand, thank him for his help>You just did it so Gyarados wouldn't float away. Reprimand him for being irresponsible.>Ask what he's going to do with it>Something else (write-in)>>30105231[Thanks! Don't know what that means, but I'll try. QM that vanished one day?][Anybody have any name ideas? Vote will happen later on at some point.]
>>30105327>Plus, flute powers.Yesssss.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EzghNsi2-8
>>30105413>Shake his hand, thank him for his help>Ask what he's going to do with it
>>30105401We already are gonna GET a Gyarados you unbelievable shithead.Do you not know how Magikarp work?
>>30105413>Shake his hand, thank him for his help.really helped out back there
>>30105436We HAVE one already, stop trying to push this so hard.
>>30105276The fact that we are already gonna get a Gyarados and it'll be much more likely to listen to us doesn't count?It ALREADY knows Bounce.
>>30105413>>Shake his hand, thank him for his help
>>30105436>wanting to waste 10 threads training a Magikarp just a get a Gyarados we already have>it will probably have anger issues regardless of MUH FRIENDSHIPnah man you a retard.
>>30105436Don't you want to be that one fisherman with one Magikarp and 5 Gyarados that makes people cry?
>>30105413>Thank him for his helpName for what?
>>30105481Shut the fuck up you asshole. Did you not hear what Gobble said about what makes pokemon likely to listen to their owners?We had everyone attack that Gyarados, not even just our pokemon.
>>30105481Why the fuck would we want one who won't listen to us,The magikarp is fine, getting that gyarados was retarded. We wasted three pokeballs thanks to you
Well this thread has started out well.
>>30105524...Are you illiterate? Because you're clearly not reading the fucking Quest.You know, the one in which two Magikarp evolved after beating one pokemon, and the one we caught knows Bounce.
>>30105531What the fuck are you talking about, it was all us, except for one attack by Eddie who came out of nowhere, we didn't ask him. >>30105538Have we even taken him out, you dumb motherfucker? You know nothing about him, you're assuming he won't listen, and that he won't know bounce, and that aside it's still meta-gaming bullshit you're trying to push in.Just because your still angry because other people wanted to do something different than you doesn't mean we're going to throw away a perfectly good pokemon.Your the one bitching here, fuck off.
>>30105538we can buy more balls
>>30105568People are stupid and aren't reading the quest, and wasted all our pokeballs as a result.
>>30105531It was 2v1 but we battled it solo.
>>30105599We ARE kind of rich.
>>30105610>The person bitching about catching a Gyrados complaining about other people Oh no, god forbid we buy more pokeballs with our small fortune which can take us through the rest of the journey. It's not like pokeballs are for catching pokemon or anything
>>30105524Apart from the fact that it's already near evolving, I think a gyarados that fucking listens to us is probably a better bet.Also ten threads is no time at all in this quest.But you seem to be about as impatient as a jew who's been told he has to wait five minutes to get a penny.
>>30105591We already HAD a perfectly good pokemon but you were too much of an impatient baby to wait for one battle for it to evolve you asshole.
>>30105610Meh, those are replaceable.
>>30105610this aint a nuzlocke faggot,it's not like we can't buy more.
>>30105642Even if you don't want it we can trade/sell it for something useful.
>>30105666So what? That doesn't change that we got a duplicate pokemon for no reason at all.
>>30105413>Shake his hand, thank him for his help>Ask what he's going to do with it>>30105641When the racial insults come out, I think it's safe to say that it's time to calm down and see what the story brings.
You know, we love arguing but only four people have bothered to reply to the quest post, talking amoungst ourselves is good but not if it gets us nowhere.
>>30105695I'm the one that mentioned that first in the thread, but a bunch of people are objecting to that for some reason.
>>30105730Obviously because people don't want to trade or sell it.
>>30105413>Shake his hand, thank him for his help
>>30105698Not a duplicate. One is an angry raging snake dragon thing, with moves we don't know, one is a nearly useless goldfish. If we get a handle on Gyrados, we can pass off the goldfish to Vance. Besides, the Gyrados is a challenge. It's dynamic. Evolving the fish would be a slog.
>>30105642do you know what level the Magikarp is at? No you do not, for all we know its level 5 and it will take 30 threads to evolve it into a Gyarados we already fucking have.
>>30105722Some special rules a guy made up to make his runthrough harder. Got pretty popular.1. You can only catch the first Pokemon you encounter in a new area.2. If your Pokemon faint they are considered dead, release them.
>>30105756Selling it may approach poaching, so it would be best to either train it along side magikarp or by itself, hold onto it to cross water, trade it, release it or something else.
>>30105795That really doesn't sound that fun
>>30105774...YOU ARE SO FUCKING STUPID TWO MAGIKARP EVOLVED FROM BEATING ONE MACHOP YOU ILLITERATE ASSHOLE.AND MAGIKARP ALREADY KNOWS ONE REALLY GOOD MOVE, AND THEN IT'S GONNA BECOME A GYARADOS.
>>301057953.can't buy items at pokemart, can only use pokeballs you find on the ground in game.
>>30105809poaching is illegal hunting.
>>30105876Holy shit, you're really sperging out here.
>>30105827Grinding a new Pokemon to replace a dead one is painful. I'm not talking emotionally, it's tedious as fuck.
>>30105785Do you really fucking think Gobble is going to do that, after how little it took for those two Magikarp to evolve? You're an idiot who is horrible at pokemon.
"Thanks," you say as you shake his hand. "It could have been a lot of trouble if you weren't there.""No problem. I wasn't even worried about my safety. I was hoping I'd look really cool!" He covers his mouth again. Eddie has an honesty problem.You look over to Vance. Vance is looking good for someone who was literally punching a Gyarados. He's congratulating his Stunky on a job well done. He sees you and Eddie and begins to walk over."Let me go!" You hear Robin's voice coming from inside one of the ship doors. You're just able to see her feet kicking in the air. As you run over to investigate, you almost bump into the ship's captain."Let her go." The captain commands. The two crew members holding her let go of her skinny arms. Her feet hit the ground.The captain pushes passed you. He's carrying some sort of launching device. He casually aims it into the air and fires off a cylinder the size of a can of soda. It explodes in the air high above the ship. A cloud of gas trickles down. It smells familiar."Industrial strength Repel," he explains. He turns back to Robin and the two crew members who were holding her. You recognize them as the same ones who pretended not to see the Magikarp jump back on the deck. "Standard regulations dictate that Repel is to be used if any wild Pokemon are found onboard the ship."One of them protests. "They were just Magikarp!"The captains glare is intense. "Yes," he says, staring them both in the eyes. "They were." He emphasizes the last word and the two crew members flinch. His gaze then settles on Robin. "You. I'm sorry, but I'll need to detain you."Did he just say he's going to detain Robin?>Ask why, he must have the wrong person>Grab her and run. Figure it out when you're safe>There's no way she did something wrong! Try to stop him (Verbally. Write-ins encouraged)>Something else
>>30105903Yeah, it sounds like normal pokemon, only with 70% more grind
>>30105827That's the point.>>30105876Cool your jets man, circumstances, those two may have been older or something, I think the point it Gyarados is ready now, while magikarp isn't evolved.I don't see why we can't train both, Gyarados would be calmer with one of his pals around (maybe)
>>30105918>>Ask why, he must have the wrong person
>>30105898You're completely retarded.
>>30105918>Ask why, he must have the wrong person>There's no way she did something wrong! Try to stop him (Verbally. Write-ins encouraged)
>>30105876woah there, man, you need to calm down. Pokeballs are cheap and we recently came into a LOT of money.
>>30105918>Ask why, he must have the wrong personBut make sure to get between them so they can't try and haul her off before replying.
>>30105918>Ask why, he must have the wrong personThe fuck, dude.>>30105893Well, I'm not sure of the proper term, point is selling a pokemon without the right license might be illegal.
>>30105918>Ask why, he must have the wrong person>>30105922Because it's a waste of time.
>>30105876What's this? Your Anon is evolving!...Congratulations! Your Anon has evolved into Spurglord!
>>30105947That doesn't change the fact that they're just going to ditch that Magikarp we got because they have no patience and are deliberately ignoring that it knows Bounce and won't be hard to train.
>Ask why, he must have the wrong person
>>30105918>shove Robin forward It was all her, she's also a thief!
>>30105996And how do you know this Gyrados doesn't know bounce?How do you know the Magikarp won't grow just as angry? You're making quite a few assumptions here
>>30105996we'll give it to Vance then. problem solved.
>>30105996I think it would be good to have around Gyarados, so it would prehaps be a bit calmer.When Magikarp evolves, it still wouldn't be a guarantee that it obeys, just like the gyarados we caught may not obey, since it's a violent pokemon anyway.
>>30106024Because we'll train it and make sure to be nice to it until it evolves.And Gyarados probably does know Bounce, doesn't make catching it any less of a retarded waste of time you infantile shithead.
People are getting too angry.
>>30105996pretty sure it knows bounce. no real other way it could have defeated Machop, even with a second magikarp backing it up. its stats are too pathetic to make much use of tackle
>>30106054Everyone should just calm down
>>30106054Agreed. Here, have some cute skitty.
>>30106054we need cute pokegirls doing cute things to cool all this anger stat!
>>30106054a stupid argument happens every fucking thread.people can't into different ideas and ways of thinking apparently.
>>30106050we could use Gyarados to trade with someone who wants one. seriously, why are you so mad? So what if we caught a Magikarp and a Gyarados? So what if we used the last of our pokeballs?
>>30106088Take it easy.
>>30106050So the only point you have here, is that you assume it will be less angry than if we caught it, which is an issue that could be taken care of if we spent the same amount of time training Gyrados?
>>30106096release the cute pictures
>>30106100Because people don't want to trade the Gyarados to anyone, they want to keep it and keep the Magikarp perma-boxed because they're lazy.
>>30105918"Woah, woah, woah. Woah. Hold the fuck on. What's the charge?"
>>30106148Who says we can't give the Magikarp to Vance?
>>30106148So you're telling me that in every pokemon game you have ever played, you have used all the pokemon you have caught equally, and have never neglected a pokemon because training can be tedious and not fun? because that's what you seem to be saying.
>>30106170Why the fuck would we do that?No one wants a Magikarp, but someone would want a Gyarados.
>>30106148no one said we would Permabox Magikarp, i'm FINE with having TWO Gyarados.Stop being a faggot wanting to ditch the Gyarados we caught.
>>30106202>No one wants a MagikarpThen why would we choose to trade a Gyrados and train it?
Just a reminder. Ash has like 100 Tauros
>>30106210One's male, one's female. We evolve magikarp but then they do nothing except try to bone each other.
>>30106201But it won't be tedious because Magikarp is already close to evolving, knows a really strong move, and in this quest pokemon are living things with feelings, and you're being a shit trainer.And I do make an effort to train all the pokemon I catch.
>>30105918"Like hell you are"
>>30106233Ash is the worst trainer ever.>>30106223Because we caught it you asshole.
Y'all just need to take a deep breath and think about why you're really angry.
>>30106237> Magikarp is already close to evolving>knows a really strong moveHow do we know Gyrados doesn't>You're being a shit trainerMotherfucker we literally caught it five minutes before the Gyrados, we're not cheating on him. We haven't even named either
>>30106278People are seeing the quest like they're playing a video game, even though that's synonymous with being a shit trainer who doesn't give a shit about their pokemon as friends.
>>30106278Because I don't have an adorable Kirlia companion.
>>30106278I'm angry because people are angry we caught a fucking Pokemon like a pokemon trainer.
>>30106263>Nobody wants a Magikarp but people would want a Gyrados>we shouldn't keep the Gyrados though because we caught a magikarp that we don't wantgreat logic.
>>30106294Two Magikarp only needed one battle to evolve, and do you really think Gobble would drag out training the Magikarp for ten threads just because that's how it is in the games?Also just because Gyarados does doesn't mean it's worth getting.
"Detain Robin? What for? Whatever you think she did, you're wrong."Vance comes up from behind you.The captain turns to the two of you. "She was breaking into security lockers to get this." He lifts up the Repel canister launcher. "While I'm personally impressed with her quick thinking, procedure dictates that since she vandalized ship property, she is to be detained until an investigation is completed and reviewed by a qualified officer. Only after an official investigation has been filed or we dock can an officer release her.""And who is the 'qualified officer?'" Vance asks. Both you and he shift between Robin and the captain, just in case."My first officer and myself. The investigation and filing will take at least a couple hours. Assuming no new evidence is found, I don't see there being any problems. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I think we've ignored enough regulations today." He barks the last part at his two crew members. They flinch again. They have the same guilty look you used to get when you were much younger and not quite so used to getting chewed out for breaking the rules.Robin speaks up. "I'll go. I don't want to make any trouble." She meekly stares at her feet.>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you too>"Fine, but this better not be some sort of trick.">Grab Vance and Robin and try to make a break for it>Something else
>>30106310Pokemon Trainers TRAIN their pokemon you idiot.They don't just catch the already evolved version because it's easier.
>>30106237we don't know Magikarp is close to evolving. those 2 Magikarps could have been a lot older than the other ones, and therefore had more experience.>>30106301Hey, I love the video games and I love the pokemon I play with, but it's hard to love every single thing you catch. you have to be selective about what you love, otherwise your love it meaningless.Also, since this is probably like the anime, the pokemon we aren't carrying probably still get attention, like at Professor Oaks lab
>>30106327Okay, then let me ask you this.What fucking difference would it possibly make, to go train a magikarp for one battle before it evolves? Is one battle going to make it fall in love with us?>>30106345>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you too
>>30106345>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you tooThis is bullshit, but it's not like there's anywhere to run
>>30106345>"Fine, but this better not be some sort of trick."Ask if we can just hang out with her while she's in custody?
>>30106345>We just beat off the two guys who were gonna smash this boat to splinters, can you let her go in thanks for doing that?
>>30106345>>Something else"There were 2 Gyarados attacking the ship! Lives were in danger and you're talking about Protocol?!?! Did somebody have die to get that stick out of your ass, you draconian jerkwad?!?!"
>>30106368Because we fucking caught it with that intention, and we'll never know until we try.
>>30106345>Something elsethat's not cool and you fucking know it captain.challenge him to a pokemon battle over it if he gives us any lip.
>>30106366>>30106301I saw this coming eventually.Darn 6 pokemon limit. It's hard to balance screentime.I'm in favour of just sticking with the 6 we're using right now, but it doesn't particularly bother me either way.
>>30106345>>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you too
>>30106345>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you tooWe've gotta make sure they don't intimidate her or something, we've been through this a few times and know how to handle ourselves.
>>30106345>>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you tooShe'll cry and stuff if we leave her.
>>30106345>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you tooThere's no way they'll find anything wrong anyway.
>>30106417We caught Gyrados with that intention too, you faggot. You're just playing favoritism and trying to piss off the people who outvoted you
>>30106345>Something else'Fair enough. Anything I can do to help the investigation come along?'
>>30106345>If they're taking Robin, they're taking you too
>>30106345>Something else"Like hell. Robin was trying to save your damn ship, so if you're pissed at your crew the least you can do to thank her is to leave her out of it."
>>30106423I don't really think that's how it works man.>>30106410I also don't think we should start a shouting match, stay calm.
>Something else"Mind if I stay with her?"
>>30106410No, man. He has a point. If anything we should have just asked why a passenger reacted faster than the crewmembers, without yelling.
>>30106447You caught Gyarados because you have no patience and no trust in the QM, you dunce.You took a fucking shortcut.
>>30106480okay, there is no way someone is this angry about it. I detect a troll, just ignore him.
>>30106480Stop talking out your ass, we caught the Gyarados because it was there and we are a pokemon trainer with some pokeballs.In game we didn't even know what the fuck Magikarp evolved into before the Gyarados attacked so stop being a meta faggot and deal with it.
>>30106520You thought Gobble would drag out training the Magikarp for ten threads because that's how it is in the games, even though that makes no sense.
>>30106480>>30106565Also it'd be good to point out that fainting the gyarados could cause damage too, since it might spur on others, or fall on the boat and break something.
>>30106345"While we tried and succeded in saving your ship and passengers onboard you worry about protocol. Right. Better detain us too if you want to follow up on that line of thought. You know, pre-emptivemeasures. Besides, we dont abandon our friends because of jerks like you."
I personally I'm interested in seeing what the professor has to say about these souped up pokemons. I think two specimens from the same species at slightly different levels will yield more data than just one Magikarp.
>>30104868I was going to make a point of that last thread, but then I was like "nah" so I didn't
>>30106345"Objection! If your crew members hadn't stopped her, we wouldn't have had to endanger ourselves and our pokemon in attempting to fight off the Magikarp and resulting Gyrados that were endangering your ship. We could have died, and that's a black mark on your ship and your Captaincy. Furthermore, your crewmen knew about the Magikarp leaping on deck and, in actively prohibiting my friend here from reaching the Repel launcher, they were further endangering your passengers. There's no reason to punish her for trying to save your ship and your reputation! There's something else going on here."
>>30106716Pheonix Wright pls go.
>>30106716this.people giving up without a fight....disgusting
>>30106704I think we should ask Robin about that as soon as possible.We've seen people carrying backpacks full of pokeballs in the anime, and the manga, so why are we limited?That being said, we might not want to carry too many, or we might run the risk of accidentally losing one and not noticing
>>30106716Hes just following the rules at this point man calm down. He said himself that there shouldn't be a problem.
>>30104868Reasoning in Adventures/Special is that the League set the limit at six because beyond that number its unfeasible to train and bond with your 'mons
>>30106716I think that's a little much, we're just getting through technicalities here.On another note, how much XP do you think Dan and Trunks got from the battle?
>>30106751Poke-laws. I think its a good thing. Imagine if team rocket were able to carry as many pokemon as they wanted.
>>30106781I think you don't get XP unless you faint the opposing pokemon in the games. Catching them doesn't count.
>>30106751The other thing is how people can get away with stealing Pokeballs when they are just teleported to a PC
>>30106810it does in X and Y
>>30106758He's also allegedly a pedo and I don't feel comfortable leaving Robin alone with this guy for a couple minutes, let alone a couple hours.
>>30106810Well, apparently the magikarp got enough EXP to level from us defeating them, I don't think it's unreasonable to assume we got experience from catching them.
>>30106751Well, I guess its just easirer for a quest-running reasons. And maybe people with full backpacks of pokeballs werent official trainers abiding League rules per se
>>30106826That's why we go with her.>>30106805But team rocket commonly runs around with backpacks full of stolen pokemon that don't disappear.
>>30106848that's because the pokemon aren't registered to them, and the pokeball doesn't know who's carrying it.
>>30106848Disappearing happened first in the anime, but then it became the balls shrinked down and locked themselves.
>>30106826Where did you get that information other than your imagination? Plus I didn't say we couldn't stay with her.>>30106848Yeah but they don't use the stolen pokemon do they? They probably have to do shit to get them usable.
>>30106899Rumors from the ship's passengers last thread.
>>30106826they were actually talking about a different captain, and that captain was interested in boys
>>30106932Oh? My mistake, then.
>>30106904>>30106932Rumors from the two shithead crew members who cant do their jobs.
"We just beat off the two Pokemon who were going to smash this boat to splinters, can you let her go in thanks for doing that?"His face doesn't show any emotion. "I'm afraid not."He's not budging on that front. Maybe you can try something else. "Mind if I stay with her?""I have to detain her because he vandalized ship property. I cannot allow you into the brig and I cannot just detain people for no reason.""Fine! I'll 'vandalize ship property' too!" You push over a nearby glass. It bounces on the floor. "That was supposed to break."He sighs. "Very well." He signals a crewman to take you along.Vance steps forward. "I threw tables and chairs at that Gyarados. Take me too."The captain puts his hands over his eyes. "Just detain them all until the investigation is complete." His body language makes him look annoyed, but his voice almost cracks. He turns away from everyone and looks out to the water. "Once the investigation is complete, I'd like to invite all of you to join me in my cabin for dinner." That seems like an odd request from someone who's arresting you and your friends. He doesn't wait for a response before he orders 4 other crew members to escort everyone to the brig.One of the escorts, the one in charge, gives a respectful nod to the captain. "Captain Taylor, What about the Pokemon?" "There are no regulations concerning that. I see no reason to separate them from their trainers." He puts his hands behind his back and walks off.(continued)
>>30107036They're Team Whatever agents.
>>30107036'The Captain's tableWhat an honor!'
The captain walks out of sight and the other crewman takes charge. "You heard him, detain them all and take them to he brig!"Eddie is taken too. He tries to protest. "I don't even know these people!" The guards debate over whether the captain meant to include Eddie too, but decide it's better to be safe than sorry. They did see you shaking hands.The brig is a small room with several individual cells. They take your bags but let you keep your Pokeballs. You watch where they put your bags in the security room as well as you can as you're escorted into one large cell.All but one of the crew members leaves. The remaining one walks into an adjacent security room that has a window looking into the holding cells. He's facing away as he watches the security cameras. You're separated by some sort of plexiglass, he (probably) can't hear you. There's a stranger in the other holding cell. He's sleeping on a bench, so you can't see his face.Robin looks to you and Vance, and even Eddie. "You guys didn't have to do this. I don't think I'll be in trouble.">Shrug it off. It's no big deal>It's just part of the plan to break her out>Hug her. You didn't want to leave her alone somewhere scary>"Gee, thanks Robin. You're welcome!" (sarcasm)>Something else
>>30107077More like a stiff-ass. If he was Team Ignorant he would have taken the pokemon.
>>30107079Who said you were coming, Zoidberg?
>>30107085>>Shrug it off. It's no big deal>Something elsemake a joke about women in prison movies. another chance to tease to her!
>>30107089Not the Captain, the crewmen.>>30107085"I couldn't let you two out of my sight. Something's fishy here."
>>30107085>"Gee, thanks Robin. You're welcome!" (sarcasm)
>>30107085>Shrug it off. It's no big dealIt's cool, so is eevee alright?
>>30107085>Shrug it off. It's no big dealThis aint no thing.
>>30107085>Shrug it off. It's no big deal>Now, we are gonna need to get our story straight. Why did you try to take the Repel flares?
>>30107085"Yeah I know, just wanted to keep you company."
>>30107102Then they're just morons.
>>30107085Hug her, then waste time training our mons
>>30107085I'm surprised at the lack of Hugs for the Hug god.
>>30107138Not infront of Eddie
>>30107085>Shrug it off. It's no big dealFigure out who the guy in the other cell is.
>>30107138Hugs aren't always the best answer.
>>30107085Nah Robin, you've entered the criminal world now and are on the fast track to delinquency. You are my partner in crime.Vance is our legbreaker if he wants to join Team Vandalism.
>>30107178Either she agree and we steal shit or it lightens the mood
>>30107085>Something else"Forget it. Just don't drop the soap."
>>30107199Robin would never steal shit just for us, it would lighten the mood though.
>>30107085>>Something else"You know I am not a fan of authority figures without merit. besides, leving you with hell know who alone, in a jail? No."
>>30107085"Arrested for the first time! I'm so proud, my little Robin is growing up so fast!"
>>30107340We don't you turning into a prison bitch (unless its us)
>>30107085>Shrug it off. It's no big deal>Hug her. You didn't want to leave her alone somewhere scary
>>30107376Comon, no teasing on that level in public.
>>30107085>It's just part of the plan to break her out this when else we we get to practice a jail break?
>>30107446Yeah, but why exasperate the situation?
>>30107085>>Hug her. You didn't want to leave her alone somewhere scaryWe aren't just gonna leave our girl all lonesome.
>>30107446On a ship in the middle of the water with nowhere to go?
>>30107085>Hug her. You didn't want to leave her alone somewhere scary
>>30107085this >>30107102because pun
>>30107462our room we did get a a good room then order a tone of room service, god dam we made a shit load of money at the poker table rich people are above the law.
>>30107516Not to a grumpy captain
>>30107516its just a slap on the wrist cuz the cap has a stick up his ass about rules.besides, considering Kat street tough background I think it wouldn't be a stretch to assume Kat knows how to pick a lock already
Before you answer, you ask her something. "Is Eevee OK?" You ask. She nods. Good.With that out of the way, you shrug to respond to her other comment. "It was no big deal. Arrested for the first time! I'm so proud, my little Robin is growing up so fast! You've entered the criminal world now and are on the fast track to delinquency." You wave around the cell in a grand gesture. "You're my partner in crime! Vance is our legbreaker if he wants to join Team Vandalism." Vance puts on his best thug face.There's a round of laughs. Robin takes an extra second to get the joke. For a moment it almost looked like she was considering her new criminal life."What about me?" Eddie says."You can be our first victim." You give him a wicked grin. More laughs and giggles follow. You turn back to Robin, "I couldn't let you out of my sight. Something's fishy here." Eddie throws his hands up. "What's fishy is how I was roped into this. Don't get me wrong, that was a touching little moment back there and I appreciate you getting my Gyarados, but I want to be on the deck with the tanning girls instead of here."(continued)
>>30107589Can I just say I totally fucking called it if Team Imperium really does try fucking with us.
>>30107589You ignore him and lean in close to Robin. "Like I could pass up a chance to re-enact a scene from a women's prison movie."Robin turns scarlet and changes the subject. "E-Eddie! Y-y-ou caught a Gyarados?"Eddie beams. "Yeah! I don't know if I'll train it or release it into the ocean though."Robin nods. "That's right. Magikarp usually swim downstream into the ocean long before they evolve. These ones knew Bounce, so they must have been able to grow and get experience a lot faster than normal." She thinks for a moment, then looks back at you. "What else did I miss?"You tell her all about what happened."That's amazing!" Both Robin and the stranger say at once. He was listening the whole time, just pretending to be asleep."Excuse me." He says. He's tall, dark, and handsome. His black hair extends below his shoulders. "I y'am Antonio." He reaches for your hand through the bars to try to kiss your hand. His accent isn't one you've heard before, but you haven't heard many.>Let him. Introduce yourself>Ask why he's in here>Slap it away>Something else
>>30107663>Ask why he's in hereNo hand kissing from strange people in a cell.
>>30107663>Slap it awayI'm really not expecting any other vote.
>>30107663>>Ask why he's in here>>Slap it away
>>30107663pull the hand back, ask why he's here
>>30107663>>Let him. Introduce yourself>Ask why he's in herelet the man be polite, its not like he's fingering us
>>30107663>Ask why he's in herebut pull our hand back
>>30107663>Shake his hand. Firmly. VERY firmly.>Ask him what he's in for.
>>30107663>Ask why he's in here>Slap it away
>>30107663>Let him. Introduce yourselfLet's see if Robin will get jealous.
>>30107663>>Let him. Introduce yourself
>>30107663>Let him. Introduce yourself.
>>30107752But why let a stranger kiss your hand? He's in the brig for something
>>30107797We're in the brig too. Did we deserve it?
>>30107797It's not for diseases though.
>>30107752Letting a pig disgusting male touch us is out of character.
>>30107797so are we, and on a bullshit charge to boot. No reason to be rude, and if he turns out be an asshole, we'll treat him like one.
>>30107797Maybe he saved the ship from rampaging pokemon?
>>30107663>>Let him. Introduce yourself>>Ask why he's in here
>>30107663>Let him>Begin five-way
>>30107813stop hating people just because they have a penis
>>30107810Stiff-ass captain who needs to deal with shitty crew, diffrent situation.But you have a point.>>30107812Still creepy>>30107813Is what I'm getting at.
>>30107813Kat is bisexual, she just has her eye on Robin specifically.nobody wants to fuck Antonio, this is just being polite, no reason to make a potential enemy or be rude.
>>30107663>Ask why he's in herePull hand away
>>30107752Nah. Let's not.
voting ended like 8 minutes ago guys...
>>30107752Why would Robin get jealous, actually. It's considered a form of greeting, unless he shows some obvious ulterior intend it's just a way of introduction.
>>30108008This. Fucking Tumblrites.Male and proud.
You pull your hand away before he can grab it and lay his lips on it."Eet ees simple. I snuck aboard to meet, how you say...beautiful, rich women."So he's a harmless charmer and conman. You give him your hand. This might be interesting. "I'm Kat, this is Robin, Vance, and Eddie."Vance makes his gigantic presence known. "Just because she won big at the poker table doesn't mean she's a good target, friend."Oh for the love of- Way to go Vance! Just tell the stranger you have money. Usually it's Robin that lacks street smarts in situations like this. Wait, did he just imply you fit the other qualification for this guys targets? That time at the spa did leave you feeling a little pretty.Antonio shrugs. Somehow it feels like his shrugging even carries an accent. "I mean nho disrespec', my large friend. I am simply helplessly honest in the presence of beauty."Eddie rolls his eyes. You do the same, but make sure nobody catches you. This Antonio guy is shameless.>Ask Antonio about his cons>Ask Robin about her panic on the deck>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for this>Thank Vance for having your back on deck>Something else
>>30108026Well, it's not so much tumlrites, more like a misunderstanding, or a wish to see some funny/adorable reactions from Robin.
>>30107663>Ask why he's in herevoting against letting him kiss our hand because he's a random dude in prison
>>30108054>Ask Robin about her panic on the deck
>>30108054>Thank Vance for having your back on deckTime to ignore the creep.
>>30108054>Ask Antonio about his cons
>>30108039This./tg/ can't not turn every female main character lesbian or bi-leaning-towards-female-companionship.Just once...just once I'd like to see a quest on /tg/ have female lead that is just straight. At the least, not manhating.
>>30108054>>Ask Antonio about his cons>>Ask Robin about her panic on the deck>>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for this>>Thank Vance for having your back on deckall of 'em. we ain't going anywhere
>>30108008Kats not a classy lady. You think street orphans>>30108054>>Ask Robin about her panic on the deck>>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for this>>Thank Vance for having your back on deckIgnore him
>>30108054>Ask Robin about her panic on the deckBut, like, with actual tact. Ask her if she's ever been in an emergency like that before.
>>30108054>>Ask Antonio about his cons>>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for thisWe should probably talk shop with the other crook. Perhaps he will have some professional advice. Maybe we can give him some.
>>30108082This. Maybe we can learn a few things.
>>30108054Might as well ask them all, we have time.
>>30108083No, Goddamnit we ARE NOT starting this FUCKING debate again. We already had the shitstorm at the begining, now can we please just have a calm quest now, can we relaz please?
>>30108083Then go cry elsewhere, this obviously isn't the place for you
>>30108054>Ask Robin about her panic on the deck>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for this>Thank Vance for having your back on deck
>>30108101Literally, this. Anything and everything aside from interacting with Antonio.
>>30108054Ask Robin about her panic.
>>30108140Your androphobia is disgusting and trollish.
>>30108153They guy's a con-man, and we just struck it rich. Distance is desirable.
>>30108122>>30108127It will always happen.Always. You can't stop it, just give in and accept it.
>>30108153Actually, I have an unreasonable fear of women. Antonio is just a creep.
>>30108153They guy's a con-man, and we just struck it rich. Distance is desirable. Also, he was in the brig longer than us, and considering his behavior it is likely it wasn't an injustice.
>>30108054>Apologize to Eddie. He didn't volunteer for this>Thank Vance for having your back on deck>Ask Antonio about his cons>Ask Robin about her panic on the deckIn that order
>>30108170WE are a damned conman. We have more in common with this dude than anyone else we've met, and experienced enough to see through bullshit cons.>>30108153 is right.
>>30108205i would like to avoid asking robin about that in front of other people
>>30108083>/tg/ can't not turn every female main character lesbian or bi-leaning-towards-female-companionship that hate menThey can and do.
>>30108217No so much a con-man as a thief who is attempting to reform her way to appease a friend, we may not be experienced enough to see through the attempts of a professional.
>>30108192We are also a con person dude. Its like the pot calling the kettle black.
>>30108237What this anon said.
>>30108231You're supposed to ignore the bait.
>>30108257That's not even bait, that's provable fact.Though I did misread the 'not' part.
>>30107752>>30107766all this samefagging
>>30108277Chill, man. It happened a while ago.
>>30108237>>30108251Our first interaction with a human in this quest was to attempt to con them. This makes us a con person. We also immediately saw that this guy was a con man so unless we act really retarded, which Im not going to lie considering this is a quest on /tg/ that is a very real possibility, he wont be able to fool us.
There are several quests ongoing where the very female main lead is very straight. In fact there are more of those then where the lead is gay or bi currently.If you want a straight lead go look for those.
>>30108170It would have to be some seriously next-level shit for this guy to cheat us out of our Vast Riches while locked in the brig of a ship after telling us straight out that he was a con man.
>>30108323Goddamnit, enough with the baiting, we have better shit to argue.
>>30108323Out of curiosity, name one.
Forget about straight vs gay, if this was Vance or something I wouldn't bitch. I'd vote against it, but not bitch. This guy is a tool at best, a conman or hardened criminal at worst, minimum contact is preferable.
>>30108277sometimes the option you want doesn't happen.live with it instead of crying over spilled milk
>>30108286I was catching up.Why is everyone so scared up Antionio? We have more sympathy for him than any other character sue to our background, that includes Eddie, notice how Gobble said "So he's a harmless charmer and conman"
>>30108323They're not looking for a straight led, anon. They just hate that others are having fun in a manner of which they do not approve.
>>30108237We were planning to con the fuck out of Robin for everything she was worth. Thats just bullshit.We're both a thief AND a conman.
>>30108353....but the option i wanted won....
>>30108358Because he has a penis, therefore is evil.
>>30108347Better yet I'll link you to one ongoing>>30102308
>>30108396So do Vance and Eddie...
>>30108369And we're not planning to anymore. We are no longer a thief, nor are we a conman. Anyone who has been paying attention would know that.
>>30108358He's certainly a conman, but I, at least, find his manner to be a bit unsoothing and his approach a bit too blunt, therefore I am arguing for distancing ourselves.>>30108369To be honest, I don't remember the begining of the quest terribly well. I wasn't here and I had to read it on foolz.
>>30108407I think he means female.BUT, Sexual Encounters Quest is a straight female Protag.
>>30108407Name one where they are heterosexual with a member of their own species.
>>30108409he's a dipshit because apparently not trusting the admitted conman we met in the fucking brig is the /u/boat hating any male interaction
awesome quest, shame about the utterly toxic playerbase
>>30108409Are you implying we didn't treat Vance like shit when we first met him?If so, I invite you to reread that part.
>>30108358>sympathyThat's bullshit, why on earth would we be sympathetic? We have zero idea why he's a conman, for all Kat knows he could be an aristocrat that's just too lazy for honest work and whose family didn't want to let him mooch any more, which would make him the LEAST sympathetic person Kat's met so far.
>>30108415Maybe he isn't planing to be one anymore either.
>>30108439You know what would fix the bitching?>Three-way investing
>>30108430but it is out of character, Gobble stated that Kat does not have a problem with him.>>30108415That doesn't mean we forgot our history. We are still the same person.
>>30108446It is two guys samefagging for shits'n'giggles, and the rest of the players taking the bait.
>>30108449We woke up naked in his bed, we had a reason
>>30108463Maybe we should talk to him and find out?
>>30108472Then I shall be outvoted, and that will be the end of it.
>>30108463see>So he's a harmless charmer and conman>>30108449We didn't straight up ignore him
>>30108436Wow, I'm sure you don't cry about yurifags in quests with non-human characters, right anon? And BPQ still qualifies, since the main romance target is human. That's ignoring the massive moving of goalposts by the way.
>>30108485Are you implying we didn't treat him like shit for a while even AFTER it was explained to us?And were incredibly ungrateful?Cause if so, I again invite you to reread that part.
Everyone smile and just vote, no had feelings afterwards on? No more silliness.
>>30108436Sexual Encounters Quest
>>30108446That's what happens when everyone gets too damned focused on the players sexuality and waifuing and you have a crowd of people who want to jump on anything with a dick combined with a crowd that want to avoid anything with a dick or just stick with crushing on Robin.
>>30108508Did we treat Eddie badly?and we have more in common with this guy than Eddie.
>>30108498Im this guy >>30108436This other guy >>30108431 Has given a better answer. I was looking for something a bit less magical realm than your answer.
>>30108508He touched our Zubat without permission.Also he seemed like a bit of an idiot.
>>30108497No, we took his goodwill and stretched it out for a couple threads and treated him pretty...not well.We are technically STILL conning Vance into paying for our meals for simply teaching him the shit WE'RE learning/making up.
>we've passed bump limit purely because of shitstormingGobble, what kind of booze do you drink to get through all the BS? I could use a recommendation...
>>30108531I just want to beat up peoples pets for cash but noooo it always has to be about sex on /tg/.
>>30108547We were suspicious but still agreed to let him come along. And Vance is our friend.If you try to claim Vance isn't our friend i swear to god...
>>30108539Because he needed zubats help to counteract the toxin in us and we weren't in a condition to give permission?At this point, you're just admitting that I'm right and you just don't want to outright say it. Man the fuck up already...
Gobble, we going to make a new thread, or just ride this flaming ball of anger into the horizon?If the latter, I'm glad you're our captain.
>>30108531Yeah, there's a bunch of faggots here upset they don't get to sleep with a guy or believe bisexuality means polyamory and all the yurifags and/or people who want to be with Robin overreact to them or get really defensive or paranoid over anything that will potentially set them off.
>>30108552I'd drink this this
>>30108581We're on page 4...No one doesn't use the catalog anymore.
>>30108552Too poor for booze right now, but a good amaretto sour usually is good for the soul.
>>30108581this happens every thread anon. The dreaded Yuri\Straight Cold War is seen every time.
>>30108581Shit we'd better hold on tight
>>30108565True or false: We are currently conning him to pay for our meals in exchange for being taught shit we don't actually have much clue about save what we pick up as we go along/make up?
>>30108589I dont care who she sleeps with to be honest. I usually just ignore all the relationship parts. But when people start being dicks to guys we just met that shits too much.
>>30108552I would recommend scotch, of your favorite region.
>>30108565We warmed up to Vance.People get buttmad that we don't immediatly trust every man absolutly because they don't want us to pursue Robin, or anyone, possibly.
>>30108623we ain't shying away from the tab now.we're in the money baby!
>>30108552i say jack but that shits expensive.
>>30108623SHit man we covered his Spa expensives we are the worst con woman ever if you believe that's the case
>>30108623Conning isn't the right word, but we are actually giving him good advice. Just because we make it up on the spot doesn't mean it's bad advice.I would pay for Stephen Hawkings advice on just about anything i do, even if he makes it up as i go.
>>30108589This isn't about that (not for me).The main character can be gay or straight or bi or whatever.But this delusion that the character does/did not treat male companions/characters worse than female ones is not gonna fly.
>>30108623Actually, we are, but since we just struck it rich I vote we stop making him.
>>30108580I'm not even the guy you were arguing with you moron. I'm just poking holes in your idiotic argument.We had good reasons to be mistrustful, among which is that KAT IS A MISTRUSTFUL PERSON BY NATURE.
>>30108623Half true, half false no conning is involved
>>30108653>>30108623True Fact: It is possible to be friends with someone and take advantage of that person at the same time. In fact, the first often makes the second much easier.
>>30108639Okay. You're wrong, but thats okay.
>>30108653people on both sides are overreacting and over analyzing everything like usual.They act like because we have a girlfriend we aren't allowed to talk to anybody that is nor already firmly in the friendzone.If you act like /tg/ does in real life then you would be called over attached and possessive.
>>30108674Yeah, she really is, I mean, Robin had that bit of innocence I guess we found appealing, but everyone else we've considered with suspiscion because of something.
>>30108641The guy's a total slime! I'd vote to be a dick to him no matter what. Not like Vance or even Eddie who's okay. Being a dick should be your natural reaction to this guy.
>>30108670We only know one female character. Who we immediately tried to con.Hell we seem to like Eddie just fine.
>>30108723Not from Kats perspective he isn't.Gobble even stated it.See>So he's a harmless charmer and conman
>>30108723He tried to kiss her hand big deal, hes foreign he can do that. He seems pretty chill.
>>30108750But what if that's just his charm, man, like, it's makin' us feel better
All these people Rollplaying and not Roleplaying.
>>30108771If a new thread starts it might all mull-over, I really think this all started with one guy consistantly trying to de-rail by bringing up the sexuality withour provocation
>>30108770We are a conman ourself. And we know he is a Conman. We have broken the 2 target rules for Conmen.
>>30108750Gobble doesn't get to decide what people vote. He's a slimy fuck, and I'll vote to ditch him as fast as possible. Vance and Eddie can come, sure.
>>30108683Oh? We didn't know a damn thing about discipline or learning martial arts or anything. He accepted the deal, and then we added a bunch of shit on top of it.As it is, it's a con.>>30108692K. When you do that to one but not the other, is it not, in fact, treating one worse than the other?
>>30108798Gobble gets to decide what the character is thinking/feeling.You don't. This is a story, not your personal roleplay game.
[Sorry for the wait]You put your hand on Vance's chest to make him back down. "It's OK Vance. You don't need to protect 'modesty'." Vance scratches behind the back of his neck at your teasing. "But thanks. For having my back up on the deck. It means a lot."Vance gives a genuine smile. "No problem."You turn to Eddie. "And I'm sorry you got dragged into this. You really saved the day up top. You don't deserve this." You leave out that nobody deserves to be here, except for maybe you for the many things you were never caught for, but you decide not to dwell. Antonio probably belongs here too, you realize. You're a little depressed that you thought of yourself as a criminal before you thought of him as one. You push that aside."So Antonio, tell us about how you got caught. Did a con go wrong?" That comes out in a tone that's a little more flirtatious than you intended."I..yes." He begins. "Thees may be a hlong tale." He pulls his bench up to the bars and takes a seat. He tells you all about how he snuck aboard to meet a specific woman. Jessilina. She's married to some rich tycoon. She supposedly has an item of incredible value in her safe, some sort of amazing Pokeball. He doesn't know the details, but it's incredibly valuable. She takes it everywhere with her. His con was simple, seduce her, get the combination, and take it. He got the combination from her after seducing her, but before he had a chance to be alone with the safe, her husband came into the suite. "I hhad to crawl out of thee window. I fell h'eento the sea." He gestures dramatically. His story telling is spellbinding. He's good. "I managed to get back onto the sheep before she left the...how do you say...port! Yes, port! Unfortunately h'as I climbed back aboard, I whas seen. They brought me here, and I've been without the company of beautiful ladies ever seence." He winks at you and Robin.(cont)
We are already past the 10 minute mark, right? Why not just do a recount, and accept whatever was voted instead of arguing for your case as if it mattered?
>>30108798Roleplay don't Rollplay.
>>30108750It honestly just seems like he's fallen into the typical QM trap of seeing two different big factions in the vote, and going the safe route of a mostly neutral reaction (in this case hand kiss shut down cold, but didn't leave too bad an impression) when this is a situation where at least one of not both sides are gonna get buttmad at the neutral reaction because they very much voted for the (positive/negative) one, not the neutral one.
>>30108821He's still learning, and we're still helping though. The point is we're trying.But I'd like to put down again we should cut him off from his food duty, since we hit the paydirt.
>>30108821We offered to help him in exchange for meals.We have both fulfilled our ends of the bargain.
>>30108842Does this guy have Cultist's accent?
>>30108842>He winks at (...) Robin.PISTOLS AT DAWN.
>>30108827We've been allowed to decide what Kat thinks feels plenty of times before. Certainly not EVERY emotion or thought, no, BUT this one was explicitly up for a vote, where we've always been allowed to, in fact, decide ourselves. So overruling people on how Kat reacts to this guy is a huge cop-out.
>>30108821Yes, I will agree, it is going better for Vance's training then it initially should have because we bumbled into some lucky methods.It is STILL a con.
>>30108849Fuck that, I am roleplaying. How is this a rollplaying thing, it's not like I'm voting to ditch him because he has bad intentions or I'm using meta knowledge, I'm voting this way because it's the reasonable reaction.
>>30108891It's obviously a representation of a terribly fake French accent.
>>30108876Actually, we offered to help him.He accepted.We added our meal costs afterwards.Then Robins meal costs after that.Then told him he has to obey our every order. Emphasis on EVERYTHING.All while musing that he wasn't very smart for agreeing to it, indicating we knew it was a bogus deal and Vance didn't.
>>30108842It was actually a pretty amazing tale, truth be told. Very entertaining anyway. You admit to yourself that he does have a way with words. He's obviously never to be trusted, but he's harmless on the other side of those bars. Probably.Eddie speaks up. "So wait, go back to the part about seducing her." You roll your eyes, but still listen. Even Vance seems memorized by Antonio's story.As he goes into great detail about his seduction, you pull Robin aside. This is a good distraction.You talk to her quietly. "So, about what happened with you on the deck..."Robin looks down. "I'm so sorry. I feel terrible about that. I don't know what happened. I could have helped!" She's almost panicking again."It's OK, calm down. Nobody blames you." You put a hand on her shoulder."I used to have nightmares about Gyarados. I stayed up late one night and watched a horror movie when I was a kid. It's so stupid, I know. It was all I could think about up there. I feel like such an idiot. I could have helped!" Robin is really taking this hard.[write-in's encouraged]>Try to comfort her >Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repel>Tell her you'll help her work on her fear>Change the subject>Something else
>>30108896No it isn't, because if we changed how she felt every single time she would be a schizophrenic fuck.He is telling a story that, at random intervals that he decides, we get to make decisions. This is not our story, this is his.
>>30108892he was eying anybody with a vag.>>30108934prolly from Kalos, since they were based off France
>>30108940>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repelIt was productive!
>>30108940>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repel
>>30108921It isn't a reasonable reaction for the character you are supposed to be roleplaying.which is why you are rollplaying.
>>30108940>>Try to comfort her>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repel>Tell her you'll help her work on her fearGive Robin magikarp and help her overcome her fear of Gyradoses
>>30108940>Tell her she did good trying to go for the repelI bet she read Moby Dick when she was smaller, poor child.
>>30108940>>Try to comfort her >>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repelit was a good idea, if those deckhands did their fucking job this wouldn't be happening.>Something else"Was the movie any good?">Tell her you'll help her work on her fearoffer her the magikarp we caught
>>30108940>she did try to help by going for the repelNobody can control what they're afraid of. It's nothing to be ashamed of.
>>30108946So you're arguing that reaction negatively to this guy would have been OOC or schizophrenic? I'm eagerly awaiting your amazing logic explaining how it would be TOTALLY inconsistent for Kat to distrust or dislike someone she recognizes as professionally dishonest when she has trouble reaction positively towards even totally nice people like Robin/Eddie/Vance at first.In fact, how is this not even more OOC/schizophrenic?
>>30108940"Being scared is a logical reaction. Even my pokedex didn't give me any sass about it.Besides, you did help a lot."
>>30108973you mixed up Gyrados and Magikarp.
>>30108940>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repelalso tell her that everyone has things they are afraid of... some people are scared of bug pokemon, some are scared of Ekens and Arbok... some are scared of heights, some of water... being afraid of a massive pokemon like Gyarados is nothing to be ashamed of...
>>30108964Yes it is.Kat is a street urchan, she knows quite a bit about conmen. She knows they're sleezy flirts who hit on anyone with anything of value and that it's better to avoid her
>>30108964How is it not reasonable? It's 100% reasonable to not like this guy, based on, for example, Kat not liking the vast majority of people she's met on first impression, and recognizing that he's a con-man (which makes him less likable, yes even though Kat is somewhat of a con-woman herself).
>>30108940"Well, I guess the Captain kind of blames you, seeing as he threw you in the brig and all.">Tell her you'll help her work on her fearExposure therapy, ho!
>>30109001Yes I did, I meant give her the Magikarp so she can evolve him herself and come to terms with them
>>30109001You gotta start her off small. If someone is afraid of spiders you don't throw tarantulas at them.
>>30108940>>Try to comfort her >>Tell her she did try to help, by going for the repelAnd:"now that you know your weakness we can face it together. We even got Gyarados to train your nightmares out of you"
>>30108940"It was a pretty tense situation, and the repel helped more than battling would have. You have nothing to apologize for."
>>30108996You ever seen quests where /tg/ has almost complete control? When you take a step back and look at the actions of the MC, they are all acting schizophrenic. But, it would ave been OOC because we know that he is a conman and we also know that Conmen are pretty useless if you know about them. PLUS we used to be like him.
>>30108940"Fetching that repel cannon was probably the smartest anyone could have done, and it's not like being afraid of Gyarados is an irrational fear: They are dangerous creatures.">Soft hug
>>30108940>Aint no shame in being afraid of Gyarados. Putting herself - and her Pokemon - at risk was dumb. She's got friends to count on for help, just like her friends count on her for help when they need it.
>>30108998Definitely mention the pokedex>>30109001We shouldn't throw her into the deep end. If we train Gyarados (assuming it obeys) with us around she may get a little more relaxed around them. Also, the magikarp would be better since she could become accustomed to him/her. rather then dealing with the full problem immediatly.
>>30109005This. There's no reason for Kat to view his positively - sure she does some con stuff herself, but she has a reason for growing up like this, but has no idea if this guy has an excuse, or is just a lazy mooch. And even if she didn't judge him personally, it makes no sense to let the others - whether she views them as friends or potential con targets - have contact with him, in case they fall victim to his tricks.
>>30108940"Hey, no, shh. It was a giant dragon made of hate. Anybody would freak out. I guess I'm just used to fighting things bigger than I am. You know, running from cops, people... Point is that I don't blame you for it, and I understand."
>>30109057Anon, my favorite quest is one of the best examples of roleplaying around, where the MC consistently acts sub-optimally based on lacking info compared to the players, or emotional outbursts, or for other reasons, without any whining or cries of railroading at all. This is not one of those cases, at BEST both positive and negative reactions make sense IC, at WORST only negative does.
/tg/ is being dumber than usual today.Protip: Try thinking about each situation like it is happening in real life, try to imagine how a real person would react to these things.
>>30109125We've had enough of this
>>30109125>implying /tg/ understands real-life situatons
>>30109110IC is actually a wary/friendly neutral.Kinda friendly because we know what he is/we were what he is, but on our guard because we know what he is/we were what he is.
>>30109125Hard for most of /tg/ because unlike the main character They aren't little girls
>>30109057>we also know that Conmen are pretty useless if you know about them.A: This assumes that we're a better conman than him. You could argue this as OOC I guess but:B: the others are clearly taken in by him, and even a verbal warning could easily not be enough to avoid getting conned if you're not experienced like Kat. Even on a purely professional level, she'd want Vance and Eddie to con all on her own, why'd she be okay with this guy making his moves?That's ignoring the fact that Kat 'used to be like him' in that she was a thief and con for good reason, but has no idea why this guy is, and the fact that there's no reason why this similarity should make her sympathetic rather than wary.
>>30108940pull her into a hug"You did try to help. If that idiot wasn't hung up on protocol, you would've probably gotten back with the repel before anything bad happened. And if you want me to, I'll help you get past your fears. Or I'll tackle them for you"
>>30109162as much as they want to be.
>>30109154SO MUCH THIS.This isn't one side versus the other.
>>30109125They'd clearly keep a polite distance, knowing that this guy likely means nothing but trouble, and even doubting his friendly demeanor as being anything other than a habit based on his conman-ways at BEST, a targeted attempt to con someone at worst.
>>30109168Kat isn't a con, she's just a thief.
>>30109194Now you are just being difficult.
>>30109191I would think that they would keep a polite distance but still hear his story and talk to him, they just know not to actually take his words seriously.
>>30109194We've been conning Vance since the day we met him.Granted it's not a very complicated or difficult con, but still.
>>30109220Everyone who's arguing this so stubbornly is being difficult, no one wants to stop and admit defeat.
>>30109194As was established earlier, she is both.
>>30109194She's a streetrat orphan, that pretty much covers everything.
>>30109154>Kinda friendly because we know what he is/we were what he isWhy the fuck would this make us friendly? It makes zero sense. Not only does it assume that some kind of sympathy would override her natural distrust and dislike of people (and again, her sympathy would have to be for his REASONS for conning people - which she knows jack shit about - not him being a con, which is meaningless) but also that it'd override her wariness and protectiveness of her friends/targets, depending on your view.
>>30109238No we have not.This is how it went down>I'll give you advice if you pay for my food>OkayThen>We gave him advice>He gave us foodPoint out precisely where the con is
>>30109268We're pretending to be more knowledgeable than we really are.
>>30109248Kat does not view conning people as bad. She stopped for Robin.And you have obviously never felt camaraderie with anyone ever.
>>30109268I'm in the "It's not a con" camp, but:>Offer him advice/information we don't have>In exchange for resources he does
Does someone here seriously think that we still keep Vance around because of free meal ticket? Or that we dont consider him atleast friend? Not like Robin obviously but friend nonetheless?
>>30109266Really, I lost track of this a while ago. I'd really like a new thread, so everyone can calm down.
>>30109295Hell yes he's out friend, even if we haven't said it to his face (I'm not sure if we have)No one goes into the fray with you and isn't your firend.
>>30109295They're taking 1 small detail that doesn't matter and are taking it way out of proportion.But we were a conman before.
>>30109277We're not pretending, we never told him we were an expert, there was no guarantee, or would you like to point out where we said we were an expert? He knew we were a new trainer and he was impressed with our battling so he figured he could learn a thing or two from a fresh perspective.>>30109282Yeah, that's called a deal. He could have refused to pay for Robins food at any time too. This is an agreement, not a con.
>>30109295No, people believe that we are conning him.Because we are.
>>30109306Leveraging something we don't have. It's dishonest.
>>30109306What part of 'confidence scheme' do you not understand?
>>30109341We are a conman, but this is not a con.Just because the deal is not in our favor does not mean it is a con.>>30109350Dishonesty =/= Con
"Kat! What do you want on your hotdog?">Ketchup>Mustard>Relish290+posts 45 images shitstorm over dill or sweet relish
>>30109341As people stated, we are teaching him, and he is learning. Even if we aren't totally sure of ourselves, it's still teaching. We just aren't the very best at doing so.
>>30109367is in our favor i meant.
>>30109337It's called a con, because we're selling a service we don't actually have.If you pay to train under a person because they're knowledgeable, but then they're not knowledgeable and just as green as you, thats called a con.
>>30109373have you ever tried them with parmesano cheese and avocado?
>>30109373>Not mustard you tasteless fuck
>>30109287>Kat does not view conning people as bad. She stopped for Robin.This is a big assumption, but even if that was true in a MORAL sense, there's no reason why she'd not be wary of and take precautions against it anyway because it's her stuff (well, her friends/targets, so same thing) that's at stake. And it still leaves him a slimy status quo. People feel camaraderie based on a ton of things, in Kat's case, being a fellow orphan, or someone the world has consistently dealt a shitty hand, would be reasonable people to feel camaraderie for. Someone who cons people for unknown reasons would not.
>>30109373>not all three
>>30109363>>30109350>>30109341A "Con" is something like Antonio is doing. Seducing someone to get close to them to steal from them. Using bargianing skills is not a con.Unless every single time you buy something a little overpriced (which is every time you buy something) you are getting conned.

>>30109400No, if you advertise yourself as an expert in Karate and you're not it's a con.We never told him we were some expert, in fact he knew we were a new trainer. We were being dishonest at no point, it's an agreement, not a con.
MAKE IT STOP, AHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>30109373Sweet Relish > Dill Relish
>>30109400the fact that we were knowledgeable was not stated beforehand

>>30109451>>30109451>>30109451>>30109451Just for emphasis.Dumbasses.
>>30109417I said she would be Wary of him. but she would still hear his story. she would trust the guy with her wallet.Unlike many seem to think here on /tg/, it isn't an all or nothing thing.
>>30109458Yeah, people are getting way too petty right now.Someone just pulled out the dictionary, that's as low as you can go, really.
Can we get a new thread after the next decision?I think we really need that right now.
>>30109451>We were never dishonest about our skills>we never tricked himI guess it's not a con then, unless you'd like to point out where Kat claims to be an expert or knowledgeable
I don't think it's weird that people are reacting so negatively to Antonio, for two reasons.A: He's pretty damn dislike-able to be honest, and I for one am entirely unconvinced by the reasons given why Kat wouldn't find him dislike-able as well. He's a tool!B: Simply put, her initial reaction to him seems genuinely more positive than her initial reaction to pretty much anyone else we've met, which given point A really grinds some people's gears.
>>30109506Why, because someone stated something categorically wrong and stupid and a bunch of people were parroting it like they knew what they were talking about?Thats exactly when you do that.
"It was helpful! That was a good idea," you offer. "Fetching that repel cannon was probably the smartest anyone could have done, and it's not like being afraid of Gyarados is an irrational fear. They are dangerous creatures."Robin waves gestures to the cell. "We wouldn't be in here if I didn't do that. I didn't even get into the locker. I'm not scared of other dangerous Pokemon. I was afraid because it was a Gyarados and I let a dumb movie get in my head.""Some people are scared of bug Pokemon, some are scared of snake Pokemon, some are scared of heights, some of water. Being afraid of a massive Pokemon like Gyarados is nothing to be ashamed of. I think even my Pokedex was afraid." You didn't realize how weird that last line sounded until she laughed. It wasn't meant to be a joke, but you don't spoil that for her."Sorry," she says. "I know I'm being difficult. I'm just upset with myself. I feel a lot better though."Robin smiles at you. You smile back. You look back to the others. You better get back in there. Vance and Eddie probably can't handle themselves with a guy like this the way you can. Antionio keeps their attention with more stories. He's like a Pokemon at the zoo. You know not to feed it or hop over the fence, but Vance, Eddie and Robin are probably like little kids not reading the warning signs.>Train a Pokemon, make it distracting>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attention>What harm could he be behind the bars? Keep talking to Robin>SOmething else
>>30109506This is actually the worst fanbase I've ever experienced. Fuck.
>>30109530I don't think it would accomplish anything, the people would just carry overthat and its only on page 6
>>30109451Street definition of Con and dictionary definition of Con are two different things.a Conman wouldn't call haggleing a Con.Lying and saying you left you wallet at home and will return to pay tomorrow is a Con.The main thing in this is that we still provided the service he wants.
>>30109534Because this is the first person she's met in this quest that is like her.
>>30109542I thought they took our pokemon?>Warn Vance and Eddie not to get sucked into his bullshit> Keep talking to Robin
>>30109542>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attentionprotect the grouphe can't ruse a ruseman
>>30109542>Train a Pokemon, make it distracting
>>30109573No they said they had no reason to take our pokemon.
>>30109573Nah, the cap himself said there wasn't a regulation for that. >>30109577pretty much this
>>30109573no they did not. Its a slap on the wrist because the Cap is a stickler for rules
>>30109542Whipser to Robin not to trust Antonio.>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attention
>>30109573Nope. No pokemon were taken.I second your suggestion, though.
>>30109542>What harm could he be behind the bars? Keep talking to RobinAsk her what movie made her scared of Gyarados
>>30109559He's nothing like her. For that to be true, 'con-man' would have to be a size-able part of the way she views herself, which her actions and thoughts (not to mention her relatively easy talks of improving herself with Robin) completely contradict.Basically I can't understand this idea that both of them conning people would give them some kind of common ground. If she knew he did it for a good reason or something, maybe.
>>30109534>He's a tool!personal reaction>B: Simply put, her initial reaction to him seems genuinely more positive than her initial reaction to pretty much anyone else we've met, which given point A really grinds some people's gears.That is because we know what he is, and we know how to deal with him. We are familiar with his type since we used to be what he is.
>>30109542>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attentionI want to hear how he is going to try to rope us into a scheme to complete his original con and cut us in on a share. Because that's obviously what he's building up to.
>>30109542>Train a Pokemon, make it distractingWe can finish teaching trunks horn leach.
>>30109542>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attentionTell him a story of our thug days, before we hit it big.
>>30109547Then don't go to /vp/
>>30109542Remind them bluntly that this guy is a self-confessed thief. He might be good for advice on getting one-night-stands, but anything else is likely to result in tears.
>>30109532>He demonstrates various Pokemon Martial arts for awhile, and surprising yourself, you're already thinking of ways he can improve them. He still looks like an idiot, but he's an idiot you might be able to use. And maybe help out a little. Maybe.>you figure you can put him to good use. It might not be as easy as Robin (who is?) but with a little effort, you can wrap him around your finger. He's already become your new meal ticket. You hope it's worth any trouble he might be, as you watch him and Robin getting along.This the the thought-pattern of someone who is conning someone else.
>>30109630That's no reason to be positive. That's a reason to be apathetic for her own sake, and protective of her friends/assets on a more pragmatic level. Which speaks towards overall negative, or at least actively preventing Vance/Eddie from getting taken in by his tales, and letting him work his magic on them or Robin.
>>30109542>>Talk to Antonio yourself, keep his attentionBrag about how you won so much money at the Casino that you had a spa and gorged on buffet food then lament how you are back to being fairly poor.
>>30109627BUT KAT DOESN'T VIEW IT AS WRONG!!!!!!She only stopped because of Robin.
>>30109466We played up our training success as if we had some unique insight into pokemon training and we've been making shit up off the top of our head ever since.
>>30109542Talk to Antonio yourself. Ask where he's from. DO NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, reveal your ambitions or destination. Vance may have blurted out we were loaded, but I guarantee Antonio didn't just let it gloss over him.
>>30109542>Train a Pokemon, make it distractingTrain, train, everywhere!
>>30109668Surge was not that tiny.
>>30109547yeah, it's pretty autismal.I just ctrl+f for "gobble" and ignore errything else to stay sane.
>>30109577You'd think that
>>30109668But... we're not.Gobble said we had enough to fund the rest of our journey in its entirety if we're moderately frugal.
>>30109675She does view it as wrong, she just doesn't care.
>>30109665Okay, but why don't you show me where we claimed to be an expert or knowledgeable? Show the the lie.
>>30109679Um we are on a ferry to a town. He can probably guess.>>30109702I think this is what is known as a lie,
>>30109708Thats pretty much the same thing.It doesn't go against her internal morals of what should/shouldn't be done.
>>30109702It's called lying. I'd like the conman to assume we aren't worth robbing especially since how he knows we won loads of money.
>>30109717>Accusing the QM of lyingSeriously?
>>30109675>BUT KAT DOESN'T VIEW IT AS WRONG!!!!!!What the fuck does that matter? Even if she views it as okay, it's clearly not something she feels defines her, and even if she did, that's no reason to feel some kind of connection to other con-men. I mean, given the nature of conning people, other con-men would be usually viewd as rivals to be avoided or chased off if she did. But given how easily she agreed to improve on that side of herself, she clearly doesn't think of herself as a con-man or anything of the sort, so why would her reaction to this guy not be professional wariness at the very least?
>>30109627The only time two cons would trust each other like that is in a situation where neither wants something from the other. This doesn't seem like that kind of situation.
>>30109700at the very least, we stand a better chance than Eddie or Vance.
>>30109558Haha, you want the street definition of a conman? Thats even worse for you.Street definition means confidence man, i.e. Back formation of "confidence man". One who gains the trust, or "confidence", of his victims (often called marks) in order to manipulate, steal from, or otherwise predate upon them. (U.S. slang, late 1800s)As demonstrated in our first interaction with robin and >>30109665We are conning.
>>30109717A lie? But that' so wrong! If we lie, we're not better than him, and we should just admit to being blah blah blah pointless bait someone's gonna call me out over anyway.
>>30109739he was clling you a lair
>>30109727There's a very big difference in knowing something is wrong and not caring, and not viewing it as wrong, what the fuck are you talking about
>>30109650Yea, I've heard bad things. Thankfully I have no interest in going there. >>30109695Harder to do when you want to participate in the thread but I might stop looking for good suggestions entirely. At least when all the shitposting starts, it's fucking unbearable.
>>30109727I don't even.
>>30109744Yeah, I mean he's obviously a threat towards Vance/Eddie's assets at the very least. I can't see why she'd accept the risk.
>>30109739No you bloody numpty. I am saying we are lying to this guy. Because we don't want him to think we are rich anymore. Because he is a bloody con-man.
>>30109800Why on earth wouldn't we just avoid him instead? Vance/Robin could easily spill something accidentally, and it's not like we owe him anything, or he's a threat.
>>30109800What does it even matter, he won't be able to con us if we just flat out ignore him in the first place.
>>30109706That's pretty dishonest. Hell we've even been intentionally vague with our advice to cover for our inexperience, letting him fill in the blanks with his own imagination. He buys it cause it fits into the "cryptic master" martial artist trope.
>>30109742> it's clearly not something she feels defines herWhich is why she rpeatedly called herself a thief and and orphan and a streetrat?>other con-men would be usually viewd as rivals to be avoided or chased off if she did.This is not what happens in real life. besides, we are an EX-conman. We aren't going to scream and call him satan, we're going to be cool, be friendly, and not listen to any of his bullshit. preferably letting him know that we know what he is doing so he'll stop.And telling our friends.
>>30109778just, ... ... wait for a gobble post, put your own response up, ignore the thread for 15 minutes, com back, skim the shit, and see what happened. it's the only way not to go mad.
>>30109630>personal reactionYeah, and I'd sure like an explanation for why he's apparently such a cool guy because I don't see it, and I haven't seen any reasonable explanations for why Kat should see it considering her (roleplayed, mind you) more negative reactions to pretty much any other character than what I personally had at the time. You bet I'm buttmad about that.
>>30109837Thief=/=conmanorphan=/=conmanstreetrat=/=conmanIf she felt being a conman defined her, she would refer to herself as a conman, you dumb motherfucker
>>30109749We are a conman, but the Vance thing is not a Con.We have not manipulated, stolen from, or predated upon Vance.
>>30109826>>30109829It wasn't even my idea. I was just trying to explain it to some people because apparently they are completely dense.
>>30109712thread 11You're making it up as you going along, but it doesn't feel like it. It's more like your sharing your revelations as they come. You don't let Vance know that, of course.
>>30109778It's worse than you could possibly imagine.Here, isn't so bad because we're arguing over aspects of a character, and whether or not we are performing a con on one of our friends. Despite the anger flaring up everywhere, it's at least got a focus./Vp/ though, is just, so......terrible. I don't even have the words for it. It's just, so vile.
>>30109837>We aren't going to scream and call him satan, we're going to be cool, be friendly, and not listen to any of his bullshit.No-one's calling for the first, and the reasonable reaction is to watch his interactions with everyone else like a hawk and splitting from him at first opportunity. You'd have to be a retard to let a conman have a chance to work their magic, I don't care how much you think you've sussed them out. If anything Kat should know that.
>>30109860he isn't, but he also isn't the devil.>>30109863read between the fucking lines.
>>30109869>manipulatedWE MADE HIM BELIEVE WE HAVE MORE KNOWLEDGE OF POKEMON THAN WE ACTUALLY POSSESS.WE USED THESE CLAIMS TO GET HIM TO AGREE TO PAY US FOR TUTELAGE.
>>30109869Kat's own inner monlogue give the lie to that, sadly.
>>30109874Welcome to the ride, please note the end is only through personal termination of the experience.Really though. Next thread will be better.
>>30109889Ok, but show me in quotes where kat says she's an expert, or a pro, or knowledgeable.You fucking can't.
>>30109883I am beginning to feel that this thread is actually making people even more stupid. I think I shall take my leave and read this tomorrow in the archive.
>>30109902this i what i'm saying to do, people want to literally sit there and ignore everything he says, or tell him to fuck off.
>>30109902Pretty much this. It's by getting you to trust them, to think you are above the regular jack, that's how they play their longgame.
>>30109911He's still learning from it, we're still helping him.It could be defined as a con, but a con with the best intentions.
>>30109925>Next thread will be better.you're funny.
>>30109929I don't have to. Interesting enough, you don't have to outright say something to steer people toward a belief.You fucking idiot.
>>30109911Quote it.>>30109912Actions, not thoughts, count.
>>30109939Do you wish to leave? If you have the strength to wrest yourself from your seat, you may do so if you wish.
>>30109954Well we have good threads, it's just the bad seems to overcome the thought that a later one might be better.
>>30109845When it's like this that's exactly what I'll do, it kills all the fun of the quest otherwise.>>30109891Shit man, it must be fucking horrible for you to go on like that, I'll make sure to never visit.
>>30109951Other way around.Our intentions were entirely ill, Vance just lucked out because we're more competent at training than we initially thought. It's still a con, just one that didn't end turn out too terribly for Vance because he got lucky. We meant for him to be a mark, as noted here>>30109665
>>30109974kitten sleeps on my hand. I cannot.
>>30110007Fun Fact: In the real world Intentions don't mean shit, Actions do.
>>30110007I should just throw down I'd really rather not get tossed into this. I just wanted to put down my two cents and back off.Which I'm doingRight nowSee me?Backing off...Now.
>>30110007And I have thought patterns of a sociopath, but that doesn't mean I walk around pissing on bums or burning puppies
>>30109967>Quote it.No. Go read the fucking archives.
>>30110007Just because you intend to Con someone does not mean that you actually Con them.
>>30110001That guy is full of shit. /vp/ is generally fine apart from the version wars and the occasional bout of pokephilia.
>>30110020Then pull up something to watch and try to pick out the few worthy comments to respond too.
>>30110049>I can't produce a quoteThanks.
>>30110033>intend to help someone lift a heavy load>accidentally drop it and kill them>MURDER, JAIL, DEATH PENALTYright okay
>>30110049Then i rest my case.
>>30109967Entirely untrue. Actionwise, we've been bullshitting advice on a topic we have no clue about save for some pamphlet reading.Thoughtwise, we knew the above and were offering him what we thought would be useless information in exchange for food and servitude.Even if its not a con (which it is), Kat was TRYING to screw Vance over and is still continuing that original process now.
>>30110007we actually though that we could help him get over his insecurities by expanding his horizon. He agreed. Not a con. Con is a manipulation of stupid people for personal gain. Stop making us worse person than we are. You propably voted to steal that fossil too.
I... have no idea why we're so up in arms about this? The vote is over. Gobble is writing.Can we just... stop discussing it?
Can we please stop shitting up Gobble's thread? Please take the intention discussion to QTG.
>>30110119Not until the other side stops being retarded
>>30110090Actionwise we have been giving him sound advice.
what should we name the Gyarados?
>>30110091No we didn't. We THOUGHT he was a stupid meathead and guided him to the deal while musing to ourselves taht he was a stupid meathead for agreeing to the deal.Case in point, we knew it was bogus when we got him to agree with it.
>>30110132George. And we had ought to have Vance train him.
>>30110132Sir Fishington the fifth
>>30110132Leviathan>>30110149Vance kinda has his hands full with Ursaring already
I would like to point out that no one has said anything new or insightful in a while. This has devolved into a cyclical argument of "did not" and "did to."
>>30110033Wrong. It how action are perceived that holds weight. We intended to con him, we took action to facilitate the con. Since Vance will probably come out of this at least somewhat better off he won't realize he's been conned, but that's still what happened.
>>30110132Some angry storm nameOr Mr. Fishington
>>30110132Big G[teasing intensifies]
>>30110131We've been giving him advice that hasn't blown up in his face yet. We still don't know enough to be teaching, we are bullshitting and soon we'll give him bad advice that blows up in everyones face and when it happens, I'm going to laugh my ass off at this entire discussion.
Everyone should calm down
>>30110081Manslaughter, Jail, 5-10Actions matter a lot more than thoughts.And murder rarely gets death penalty, 20-life usually
>>30110189No, I change my mind to Moby.
>>30110193We won't. Because if there is one thing anons here know, it is pokemon battle strategy.
>>30110148>>30110171>>30110186>>30110215Mr. Fish Fishington?
Why are we not going with the Moby Dick reference?
>>30110198The difference between murder and manslaughter is usually intent...The action in both is the same, i.e. killing a person...
>>30110173Yeah, but he is growing. And we don't have time to train another. Perhaps we could offer Robin the Gyrados
>>30110232>Because if there is one thing anons here know, it is pokemon battle strategy.ahahahahaha
>>30110237I'd go for Sir Fishington.
>>30110237>Mr. FishingtonWhat the fuck is wrong with you, god damn it!? Are you fucking retarded!?That Gyrados kicked our asses! That's DOCTOR Fishington to you!
>>30110248No, it's our Gyrados.She gets Magikarp.Giving her a Magikarp to evolve herself might help her get over her fear of Gyrados
>>30110232Remember when 90 percent of our plans were "play the flute" in potentially dangerous situations that didn't work? Like magnemite swarm? Yeah. That overconfidence will be what leads to it.
>>30110262YOU WILL ADDRESS HIM AS SERGEANT OR HE WILL USE YOUR SPINE AS HIS TOOTHPICK
>>30110248she has a Gyarados phobia. maybe give her the Magikarp, don't think throwing her in the deep end would end well
>>30110280...this is actually a pretty good idea.

>>30110285Far too badass, Moby would really be the best.Queequeg for a water pokemon that doesn't go down for anything.
>>30110246either way you are still going to jail for a very long time.Teenagers get convicted of Child Pornography all the time for sexting their underage partners, same with statutory rape.

>>30110349If Gyrados didn't already hate us enough.
>>30110319Involuntary manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice aforethought, either express or implied. It is distinguished from voluntary manslaughter by the absence of intention. It is normally divided into two categories; constructive manslaughter and criminally negligent manslaughter, both of which involve criminal liability.>It is distinguished from voluntary manslaughter by the absence of intention>by the absence of intentionYou mean the part where is says I'm right?
>>30110349>>30110355Okay that's a little too far.Mr. or Doctor or Sergeant Fish.
>>30110355>Sergeant Doctor Mr and/or Miss Sir/Madam Fish Fishington the fifth Duke/Duchess of the Atlantic EsquireWe're gender equality all up in here.
>>30110319Well that's one case. See >>30110324 People get their lives ruined trying to do good things all the time. just because they are trying to help doesn't mean they actually help.

>>30110388Fuck you we can go farther!First Class Sergeant Doctor Mr Sir Fish Fishington the fifth Duke of the Atlantic Baron Esquire
>>30110376Did you read the rest that shows you're wrong?>Constructive manslaughter is also referred to as ‘unlawful act’ manslaughter. It is based on the doctrine of constructive malice, whereby the malicious intent inherent in the commission of a crime is considered to apply to the consequences of that crime. It occurs when someone kills, without intent, in the course of committing an unlawful act. The malice involved in the crime is transferred to the killing, resulting in a charge of manslaughter.>in the course of committing an unlawful act>Criminally negligent manslaughter (...) occurs where death results from serious negligence, or, in some jurisdictions, serious recklessness. A high degree of negligence is required to warrant criminal liability. A related concept is that of willful blindness, which is where a defendant intentionally puts himself in a position where he will be unaware of facts which would render him liable.>high degree of negligence>intentionally
>>30110376When i as talking Action means more than intention, i was talking more real life, not laws.Laws try to compensate for morality.A better scenario is one that actually happened. DDT is a chemical that used to be sprayed on crops to kill insects that ate the crops, it was also used to combat malaria and many other things. We had Malaria almost completely wiped out in US areas with people.Then a scientist came along with a study claiming that it was thinning the eggs of birds and harming them.So DDT got banned and Americia refused to provide aid to any country that used it. Resulting in millions upon millions of deaths worldwide.A few years later several studys were done (by independent companies) that found DDT had no adverse affects on the eggs of any species.Millions of deaths, good intentions. Millions of people still dead.
>>30110495In a situation wherein you drop a heavy load and cause a death, you are most likely violating a safety measure meant to prevent that, which under US law turns it into constructive manslaughter.And yes, it still indicates that I am correct. The primary difference is intent, showing that the concept that intent is "meaningless" is both childish and an argument used by the inept.
>>30110661>The primary difference is intentPretty sure that's exactly what I'm arguing for, bro. So either you're not the guy I was arguing with, or you're the flippingest flip-flopper this side of Bondi Beach.
