You have superhuman strength, durability, and agility, but at the cost of being the host of a Cambion, a murderous monster that will - eventually - kill you, using your body as a focus to instantiate itself and probably go on a killing spree. The only way to delay this fate is to kill other Incubators and Cambions.You've just got done telling your girlfriend, Tracy, that you want to meet up with her older brother, Jim. He's some middling gangster, and he sent some guys to beat you up a couple weeks ago. You're harboring some suspicions regarding his closeness and overprotectiveness of Tracy.And you're sitting at the lunch table with her and Ned, who is probably feeling a little left out of this conversation.>"Tracy. Let's set up a date for next Saturday.">"Ned. Tracy. Let's do a double date.">"Ned, I kind of got the impression that your girlfriend doesn't like me. What's up with that?">"Ned. I still can't believe you stole my date idea.">Write-in.
>>30255943>"Ned. I still can't believe you stole my date idea."
>>30255943>"Ned, I kind of got the impression that your girlfriend doesn't like me. What's up with that?"
"Ned," you start, turning to your friend, "I still can't believe you stole my date idea.""Wh-" he says, stumbling over his words. "Well, it's not like you had a patent on it!""And on the same day I went out with Tracy, too?""I panicked and couldn't come up with anything good! You don't need to rub it in..." He shrinks in on himself.You slap his back, though careful not to apply a supernatural amount of strength. "Hey, man, I'm just yanking your chain. More seriously though, I kind of got the impression that your girlfriend-""Still not official.""That Veronica," you say, emphasizing the word, "doesn't like me. What's up with that?""Really?" He asks. "You sure you're not just imagining it?""Pretty sure. She tried to crush my hand when we shook hands." You pause for a moment, and notice Tracy's expression. "Failed, of course. I'm made of tougher stuff than that.""Maybe she was just trying to rib you? Or... I dunno, Abby. I mean, I've mentioned you a couple times, but I can't think of anything that would make her have an issue with you.">"Maybe she's hates me because I'm so butch.">"Maybe she's a homophobe.">"Maybe she thinks you're in ~love~ with me.">"Maybe she thinks since I'm your best friend, she has to ward me off?">"Maybe I remind her of someone she hates?">Write-in.
>>30256212>"Maybe she thinks you're in ~love~ with me."haha teasing is always the right option
>>30256212>"Maybe she thinks since I'm your best friend, she has to ward me off?"Probably most reasonable.
"Maybe she thinks you're in ~love~ with me," you say, exaggerating the word 'love'."Abby, there is no way I'd ever be in ~love~ with you." Ned also exaggerates the word love, but this time in a sarcastic way. "You're the sort of person who rubs dog poop in their best friend's hair."You clasp your chest, gasping. "You're still mad about that? We were six!""I will never forget that day as long as I live," Ned says, solemnly. "And I will make sure you don't, either."Tracy is giggling a little, and you try to smoothly shift the conversation onto a different topic from your embarrassingly improper childhood behavior. "Maybe she thinks since I'm your best friend, she has to ward me off?""I guess that might be it," Ned says, his expression considering it. "I don't know. That doesn't sound like her.">"Tracy. Let's set up a date for next Saturday.">"Ned. Tracy. Let's do a double date.">"Maybe your girlfriend sucks and you should get a new one!">Timeskip.>Write-in.

"Tracy," you say, turning your attention back to your girlfriend. "Let's set up a date for next Saturday."Um," she pauses, taking a moment to think, "okay. I figured you'd be more pre-occupied with dealing with Jim, but sure, yeah, we can do that."Where, exactly?>Write-in.When, exactly?>Write-in.Previously:What else to do on a date... arcade, maybe?

"How about the amusement park? We can go out, have a nice time, pick up some lunch there, you know.""Oooh, and you could win me a big stuffed animal like in all the TV shows!" Tracy seems particularly excited by this possibility.You turn to Ned. "Now Ned," you say, voice even, "you're not going to steal my idea this time, right?"Ned laughs awkwardly, scratching the back of his neck. "Me? Would I do a thing like that? Twice?""I don't know, Ned. Would you take your best friend's doll and microwave it to see if it would really melt like it did on a TV show?""Is this what we're doing now, Abby?""I didn't start it," you reply, voice cold, eyes narrowed. "Now, if you can't come up with anything else, you could take her to the arcade, or a museum, or a movie. Not the amusement park. You understand me?""Okay, okay," he says, hands raised defensively. "It won't happen again.">Try to get some information about Jim from Tracy.>Try to get some information about Veronica from Ned.>Timeskip.>Write-in.

You strum your fingers on the table for a moment in thought."So, Tracy," you start, awkwardly toying with your fingers, "let's talk about Jim a little. Is he getting used to you dating me?"Tracy winces at that question, clearly signaling that the answer is no. "He-" she pauses, slinking back in her chair and avoiding eye contact. "He isn't. He doesn't like it, he doesn't want to think about it, he doesn't want to hear about it. It's, um, it's not very fun, but it kind of works out okay, since we just avoid mentioning you.""He sounds a little..." you pause as if searching for the word, "possessive?""No, no," she says, raising her hands defensively. "No, he's just worried about me. I mean, it's not always easy to be gay, you know, so he doesn't want me to have a tough life, and he thinks you're responsible, kind of." She sighs and slinks back again. "I wish I'd figured it out and told him about me being gay before telling him about you. This would be so much easier.">"If he's done anything to hurt you, you should tell me, Tracy.">"Okay. Any advice on how to handle him?">"Do you think it's reasonable to expect him to get over this, or do you think it's always going to be an issue?">Write-in.
>>30257810>"If he's done anything to hurt you, you should tell me, Tracy."Aaaanything at all. If he has a basement and a camera, you know, things like that.
>>30257810>"Okay. Any advice on how to handle him?">>30257926Let's not be so blatant about it. If we absolutely have to bring it up, lets do it somewhere private. Ned is literally right there, we're in the middle of high school lunch.
>>30257810>"Okay. Any advice on how to handle him?"
"It's fine," you say. "Any advice on how to handle him?"She looks a little lost for a moment. "Well, I mostly know him from how he interacts with me, which I know isn't how he interacts with other people... and definitely not with you. He keeps grudges for a long time." She pauses. "He's kind of a simple guy. His..." she pauses, and now looks a bit guilty, "his work, I think, has made him think in a very hierarchical way. He has to get an idea of where you are on the totem pole.""So you think I should show strength? Show off that I'm more powerful than him?"She works her lips for a second, uncertainly. "K-kind of the opposite. I mean, if you were more powerful than him, that would be one thing, but Jim..." she trails off, searching for the words. "Jim's management in a large organization. It's probably better to bow and scrape your head a little, to try to show that you respect him.">"Okay, I'll try that.">"He sent some guys to beat me up, and you want me to put myself in a subservient position to him?">"I am more powerful than him. I beat up those guys he sent after me.">Write-in.
>>30258147"I've actually been working out a lot. Why not a friendly competition?"
>>30258147>>"He sent some guys to beat me up, and you want me to put myself in a subservient position to him?"That's not an appealing idea Tracy.
>>30258147>"Okay, I'll try that."
>>30258244me heremaybe suggest >>30258176as well
>>30258176I should probably explain a bit on this point. You do have Intelligence 3, after all.Jim has physical power, yes, but more importantly, he has social power, which is what Tracy is getting at. He has people who follow his commands. He is part of a large organization. Abby's physical power, as a Knight Incubator, is through the roof, and probably greater than Jim's social power as management in a criminal organization. However, just proving to be physically stronger than Jim is very, very different from revealing your full strength, which would amount to breaking the "masquerade." If you arm wrestle or race or whatever and win, he's not going to really think of that as making you more powerful than him. After all, running fast or being strong doesn't normally make you bulletproof.
>>30258384Ah, you can do whatever with this information, just wanted to make sure it was out there.
>>30258384>>30258403okay then reinstating >>30258201 then.
>>30258384A competition is social as well as physical, especially if you use teamwork or the like.
>>30258546>A competition is social as well as physical, especially if you use teamwork or the like.Social power as in status/organizational value, not as in charisma or people skills.
>>30258591Bah. Very well.
"He sent some guys to beat me up, and you want me to put myself in a subservient position to him? That's not an appealing idea, Tracy."Tracy cringes a little, like she half-expects you to stomp off, or hit her, or something. "W-well, that's why I want you to do that! I don't want you to get beat up, and if he thinks you're 'in line,' he'll be less likely to try something again.""Didn't we go talk to him? Didn't you tell him not to do anything? Do you not trust him?"She looks down at her lap. "I- I dunno. I didn't think he'd send guys after you in the first place...">Write-in.
>>30258606yeah guyyou're not gonna start getting away with being arrogant to your local druglord by beating him in an armwrestle
>>30258646Alright, when we meet him I'll try to be a little meeker.
>>30258690I'm against this. I'm not saying we purposely antagonize him but I refuse to cater to him.
>>30258807we're just doing it for a bit, so we can get closer to him and discover the heavily hinted at abuse Tracy is receiving. Then we stop it.
>>30258646I'm sorry Tracy, but I'm a renegade who plays by her own rules and he's going to have to learn to live with that.>Mental note: get Richard to do some digging on Jim's organization and start tipping off the authorities.
"I'm sorry, Tracy, but... I'm not saying I'm going to go out of my way to antagonize him, but I refuse to cater to him."Tracy looks at you, pleading. "Abby," she says, lower lip quivering, "come on. Is your pride that important to you? I just- I don't want you to get hurt. I don't want Jim to hurt you.""I'm confident that that won't happen, Tracy.""I'm not...">Change the subject.>Try to reassure her [how?]>Write-in.
>>30259032>>Who do you trust more? Me or him? I don't misplace my confidence.
>>30259032>Change the subject
>>30259032> "C'mon Tracy, I'm sure he's not that bad. I mean, certainly sending goons after me seems pretty awful, but they might have just planned to push me around a little and intimidate me. I'll be cordial and polite, and things should work out. You're one of the nicest people I know, so if you're still close to him, he can't be that bad a person. Right?"
>>30259136 (you)changing to >>30259151
>>30259128"Who do you trust more? Your month-old girlfriend, or your older brother and legal guardian?"
>>30259032> "Is there a reason why you're not confident in that, Tracy? Beyond the whole goon squad thing I ran into?"
>>30259312Is the goon squad not enough for you?
>>30259353Not really, because on its own it's an isolated incident, when he was presumably not in full mind from shock/rage, which you wouldn't expect Tracy to believe would repeat. Besides, Abby handled it well anyway, he'd have to step up his craziness to actually threaten her.
>>30259353>Retcon Power>"Tracy, he sent five guys after me. Four of them couldn't walk afterwards"
>>30259404and he won't be in his right mind from shock/rage if we don't kowtow>>30259430and next time they'll use weapons
>>30259470>and he won't be in his right mind from shock/rage if we don't kowtowDoubtful, his rage must have cooled some and the shock certainly is gone.>and next time they'll use weaponsTracy has no reason to believe this from the initial goon-gang on its own, unless she knows he does worse shit.
>>30259430Nah, the events with the goons went very similarly. You beat them up with little permanent damage and scared them off. You may even have done pretty much the exact same stuff, just rougher, since the eyeball thing is something Abby already knew.
>>30259524the shock maybe, but the rage will be renewed, maybe even worse.and Tracy isn't dumb is how she knows they'll come back with weapons if round 2 ever happens.
"I'm sure he's not that bad, Tracy. I mean, sending thugs after me seems bad, but I don't know, he might have meant for them to just intimidate me or something." You can hear your Cambion mentally snort in derision, but you ignore it and carry on. "You're one of the nicest people I know. If you're close to him, he can't be that bad. Right?""I guess," she says. "It might just have been a, you know, a lapse or something. He was really emotional when I mentioned you to him.""Yeah, see? Everything will be fine. Just trust me, okay?""I-" she hesitates visibly. "I'll try.">Change the subject. [to?]>Timeskip.>Write-in.
>>30259602>Timeskip>"Richard, how would you feel about bringing down a minor drug cartel?"
>>30259602>Timeskip.>>30259686Hmmm, not sure it's a good idea to bring personal non-incubator stuff into our professional relationship with him. Also there's a chance if we go all the way to getting Jim in trouble with the law, Tracy will basically hate Abby if she finds out.
>>30259686I'd be ok with this if we had proof that he was abusing Tracy. Otherwise, no way, for points >>30259795brought up.
You change the subject to other, lighter topics, and spend the rest of the lunch period discussing nothing much in particular.English is dull as shit. After English, there's Math, where Richard practically mocks you with his superhuman intelligence. It makes you a little sore that he gets to just win every battle of wits like this because he got the magical lottery, though at least you know he's kind of cheating. Then comes Science, where you are blessedly free from Richard's superior intellect.And your day is free.>See if you can hang out with Ned.>Go talk to Richard about getting Jim in trouble with the law.>Go practice your abilities.>Go spy on Tracy to make sure Jim isn't molesting her.>Write-in.

>>30259909Hmm, spying might backfire - even with our enhanced senses, Jim might have his people watching his house for all manner of reasons given his occupation, who could see us.Maybe find out if Tracy's hanging out with him today, and if so, show up unannounced at the time with some convenient excuse?
>>30259909>>Go spy on Tracy to make sure Jim isn't molesting her.Yep
>>30260011you know things will be bad if we get caught right?
>>30259909>Go talk to Richard"I don't really want to get the law involved, but it would help me a lot if you can find out when they have important meetings so I can dress up as Batman and go kill them"
>>30260112Oh godOur intelligence really has gone down with the power change.
>>30260172To be fair we weren't the sharpest knife in the drawer before.The difference is blunt force has a chance of working now.
>>30259988>our enhanced sensesKnight Incubators don't have enhanced senses. The following Incubator types have sensory elements:Ballista - tactile ESP to allow them to find things to pick up.Chariot - enhanced sight to allow them to see things before they run into themMonarch - ability to detect nervous systems inside their range, basically.Scholar - general improved information processing.Exiles, Healers, Knights and Marshals all have normal sensory abilities. Well, Healers have a sensory ability, but it's touch based so it kinda sucks.
>>30260297That doesn't sound right. What stops an Exile from teleporting into a wall?
>>30260396They just fail to. Completely power based/automatic, no sensory element.
>>30260396I think if they try it just fails and they go nowhere.

After school ends, you find Ned in the mess of the halls, and walk with him, taking a moment to just talk. It feels like it's been forever since you hung out with him, and you say as much."Yeah, you've seemed pre-occupied with Tracy recently," he says. He doesn't sound like he's too annoyed by it, but he did say it."No time for old friends when you're after new tail, I guess," you say, earning a small laugh. "You want to just... hang out a bit?"He pauses. "Sounds good. Great even. But with the whole 'no cell phone policy'..." Ned trails off. "Actually, why don't you come over? We can play some video games or something. I mean, my dad likes you, he probably won't say no. We also have a church thing tonight at 7, but you can probably stay for dinner, at least.">"Great. I'm going to kick your sorry ass at video games.">"How about you head home and tell your dad we're heading out, then we go somewhere else, like..." [Write-in]>"Video games? No thanks, NERD!">Write-in.
>>30260829>"Great. I'm going to kick your sorry ass at video games. NERD!"Well come on, we gotta get the dig in.
"Great. I'm going to kick your sorry ass at video games, NERD!"Ned squints at you. "Wouldn't me being a nerd make me good at video games? And aren't you a bigger nerd than me?""Don't question my trash talking. It's only setting yourself up for further humiliation when you inevitably lose.""Uh-huh," Ned says, nodding along as the two of you walk towards his house.>"Anyway, I'm not a nerd anymore. Remember? I got swole.">"You mentioned your dad went on a date a while back. How'd that go?">"So, have you invited Veronica over to your place yet, or am I the only girl to get the privilege so far?">Write-in.
>>30261142>"You mentioned your dad went on a date a while back. How'd that go?"
>>30261142>"You mentioned your dad went on a date a while back. How'd that go?"I bet it went amazingly, as all dates not involving Abby probably do.
"You mentioned your dad went on a date a while back. How'd that go?"Ned shrugs. "I wasn't there, but he hasn't gone out with her again. Went on a couple other dates, and I've seen him chatting up some other women around his age. Also some younger ones," he adds, a small note of irritation in his voice. "It would be really weird if he wound up remarrying some girl only a few years older than me.">"Man, I can't even imagine what I'd feel like if my mom wound up dating some 20-year-old guy. Leaving aside that I'd be glad she was out of her room, that'd just be... weird.">"Well, it's his business, I suppose. If it makes him happy, isn't that what's important?">"Eh, I think older people just flirt more in general. It means less to them or something.">Write-in.

"Well, it's his business, I suppose. If it makes him happy, isn't that what's important?""I guess," Ned says. "It's just weird. Like, I know there are old people who date people way younger than them, and that's fine. It's their life, doesn't affect me. But it's different when it's someone you know personally, especially your dad.""I can only imagine," you say noncommittally. You walk in an awkward silence for a minute or so before you finally arrive at Ned's house."Dad!" Ned yells inside as he enters and takes off his shoes. You diligently do the same."Yeah?" Ned's father voice rings through the halls in response."Abby's here! Is it cool if she stays for dinner?"You see Ned's father stick his head out of one of the doorways. "Is it okay with your-" He catches himself. "Yeah, okay, sure, Abby. I'll drive you home after dinner. You kids have fun, yeah?""Sure thing, Dad," Ned responds.>"Prepare to be owned." Play video games all evening.>"Prepare to be owned." Play video games for a while, then do something else.>"Actually, I wanted to talk to you about something first, privately." Go to his room.

>>30262022they're pretty much the same thinglike we could just complain about jim a bit while playing
>>30262086First one specifically says you don't want to bring him into the Tracy situation, they are directly contradictory.
You head to Ned's room, where his console is kept and flop down to sit on his bed. He sits on the floor, resting his back against the bed, and turns the console on with his toe.You play some versus on an FPS for a few rounds over a half hour, before Ned gets tired of you completely dominating him."It's just not fun, Abby!""Sounds like someone's a sore loser," you say, but agree to play co-op instead."When did you get so good," he grumbles as he surfs through the menu.You take a moment, but realize that you are doing quite well compared to your normal skill level. Weird. Must be the improved reflexes or something, you figure.The two of you play co-op for hours. It's nice, the small verbal exchanges, working together to accomplish a goal, the enjoyment. Familiar. It's been a while since you really just sat down to just hang around with Ned, and you have to admit, you've missed it. It's not meaningful, or really objectively important, but it's something you haven't gotten to enjoy in a while. None of the nerves of spending time with Tracy."Dinner time!" Ned's father calls out from downstairs. You head down first, Ned staying behind to pause and save the game.When you get downstairs, you stumble face to face with Ned's father."Wow," he says, blinking for a moment. "When did you get so pretty, Abby?">Roll your eyes and sit down at the table.>"Are you flirting with me, Mr. Walker?">"I've always been pretty, you're only noticing now.">"Okay, too weird, Mr. Walker.">Write-in.
>>30262325>"That implies there was a time I wasn't incredibly pretty, Mr. Walker."

>>30262325>>"Are you flirting with me, Mr. Walker?"
>>30262644Hardly vain, more like shooting down his flirting without things getting awkward.
"That implies that there was a time I wasn't incredibly pretty," you reply primly before finding a seat at the table."Well, as I recall, once upon a time you were a little baby...""A very pretty baby, I'm sure. So what are we eating?""Oh, just some spaghetti," he says. "Though you weren't as pretty as a baby as you are right now.""Keep it up, and I'm going to think you're saying I was an ugly baby."Ned comes down then. "What are you two talking about?">"Your dad says that I was an ugly baby. My counter-claim is that I was an incredibly pretty baby.">"Nothing much, just discussing what I was like as a baby.>Let Mr. Walker explain.>Write-in.
>>30262771>"Your dad says that I was an ugly baby. My counter-claim is that I was an incredibly pretty baby."Mr. Walker is sounding pretty desperate....

>>30262800thisHe's creeping me out a bit, but lets play it low. No need to make things awkward with Ned's dad
"Your dad says that I was an ugly baby. My counter-claim is that I was an incredibly pretty baby.""I didn't say you were an ugly baby," Ned's father says, rolling his eyes before going over to collect everyone's plates. "If I didn't know any better, I'd say that you are intentionally misinterpreting what I was saying."Ned looks at the two of you suspiciously, but apparently decides to just let it slide. "Oookay, whatever. Spaghetti, again, Dad?" There's a small note of disbelief in his voice as he sits down."Hey, it's easy to make, it tastes good, and I'm old enough I get to eat whatever I like, and I like spaghetti.""You eat this often, Ned?""Feels like every day," he replies. Ned and his father reach across the table to hold hands and bow their heads.Oh, right, prayer. That's something you would probably do if you were a newly minted religious convert having a family dinner.>Just wait patiently.>Join in.>Fuck manners, eat.>Write-in.What to talk about during dinner?>Just whatever.>Ned's social life.>Your social life.>Write-in.

You decide to be polite and sit there, a little awkward, as they go through a prayer."To the Goddess who has given us life, who has kept us alive, and who will one day take us into our next lives, we give thanks for this minor miracle. Where once we were hungry, now we are fed...." it goes on in that vein for a couple minutes.At last, they finish, and you start to dig into the meal.You rib Ned about his girl. "Ned here has been out on a couple dates with this girl, Veronica. Apparently he really sucks at coming up with ideas for dates, though, since he stole my idea for one. It was really awkward when I was out on a date with Tracy and all of the sudden, there's Ned, clearly plagiarizing me."Ned fidgets in his seat, but his father doesn't seem to react to the fact that you have a girlfriend at all. That was flirting earlier, wasn't it? Does he figure you're probably bi, or it's just a phase, or something? Does he just not care?Fucking adults are so weird.Talk about anything else of importance during the meal?>No. [Timeskip]>Yes. [Write-in]
>>30263634>No. [Timeskip]Not really...
You spend the rest of the meal chatting about nothing in particular. Ned, you, and his dad all load up in the car. You and Ned spend the drive talking about video games some more, you giving him a few tips that you figured out. Eventually, though, the trip comes to an end, and his father drops you off in front of your house.>THREAD ENDSorry for cutting it a bit short here, but I'm just not feeling up to another hour of QMing today.Was today's thread okay? Anything I messed up on? I'm feeling very uncertain about it, and I'd like either advice (if I did mess up) or reassurance (if I didn't). Preferably advice.
>>30263879Nothing stuck out to me, I liked it fine.
>>30263879Thanks for running! Seemed fine to me, interacting with people constantly helps.
>>30263879Thanks for running, I enjoyed it as always! As for advice, it seems to me that your social scenes seem to drag on a bit. Players usually like choice, but in these cases I think you might have given us a bit too much choice. If the general attitude is that we just wanna hang out with Ned for fun and to maintain our friendship, you can assume any choices you'd give us would follow that trend and just power through the scene. Just my opinion, other anons might disagree.
