Huh, the Robocop remake was surprisingly pretty good.Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=magical+girl+hunter+questOther Works:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Idol%20Management%20Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pararescue%20WitchesYou are ALICE. You were once a magical girl, but have now ended up having to hunt down your former comrades. As a member of the Magical Girl Hunter Bureau, it is your job to defend humanity from the Magical Menace!Currently, you're own approach to the private tropical retreat only known as "Haven". Apparently a popular place for soldiers of all types, from currently serving to veterans. You wonder how a place like that keeps itself running with such a niche clientele like that, but then again, you're no businessman. (cont)
>>30288727Your "daughter" Carol, meanwhile, is busy gluing her face to the window as she ogles at everything the plane is passing over. You've seen nothing but bare ocean for the past hour, but she seems to be having the time of her life. Then again, you shouldn't be surprised, considering she's been cooped up in a lab ever since she was "born"."Oh my god it's so BIIIIIIIIIG." Carol squeals."That's the fiftieth time you've said that." Your partner Leo sighs. "Yeah, I know, but every time I think it's gonna end IT KEEPS GOING."Well, at least Carol's childlike wonder was a refreshing change of pace from scared rookies and colleagues with little to no sense of humor."Hey, hey Mom!" Carol looks your way. "You still haven't told me what Magical Girls are like!""I thought Egan and her team already taught you what they were." You frown."Yeeaaaaaaaah, well they used a lot of big words and I wasn't really paying attention." Carol sticks her tongue out. "But I also wanted to hear it from you! Like, is there some kind of universal way to identify them, and how do their weapons work? And do they taste good?">Tell her about Magical Girls in general.>Explain magical weaponry.>Change the subject and talk about something else, like the ocean!>Other
>>30288740>Tell her about Magical Girls in general.And no, MGs do not "taste good."
>>30288740>Tell her about Magical Girls in general.
>>30288740>>Tell her about Magical Girls in general.>>Explain magical weaponry.
>>30288740>magical girls general>magical dakka
>>30288740>Tell her about Magical Girls in general."They are a lot like Mummy, except they've turned against humanity and now we fight them. You should be able to sniff out their magic."
I'm just imagining Carol trying to approach some civilians only for them to back away from her, or even throwing rocks at her after she reveals her true nature after a battle with an MG. Both of these would really affect how she sees herself and damage her self-confidence.Maybe there will be some kid who would be the only person not afraid of her and think that she's the coolest thing ever because she protected them from a stray attack, like a superhero, instead of just hunting down the MG like an animal.(Note to self: See where Carol's sense of morality is. She is a being of logic, and sometimes going just by logic alone is the wrong thing to do. What we need to do is help her find a sense of humanity.)
>>30288880Yeah, we definitely need to get a more human mindset into Carol. Don't need her feeling sympathy for the Invaders.
>>30288740>Tell her about Magical Girls in general.>Explain magical weaponry."And on very rare occasions one will surrender; Daddy wants them alive when you can get them "
>>30288880Personally I almost want to go back to the battle underground and let the captain activate her, that way her first words could've been something like "DONT YOU HURT MY MOMMY!" and then everyone stops and stares, then stares more as she turned the Magical girl into her constituent parts.
>>30289017I don't think anyone is going to even TRY to surrender to an angry nemesis.
>>30288740"Hm, well." You frown. "Besides the ability to use magic, there isn't a single definitive way to define a magical girl. They're all pretty unique, in their own ways.""Really?" Carol blinks. "Like how?""Well, it's usually pretty rare to see MGs with the same exact power. Usually their special power is based off their own personalities, and well, soul I guess. At least that's how the Companions explained it.""And what was your power?""Just a real nice pair of daggers. I guess I was more akin to stabbing people." You shrug. "But in addition to that, each Companion had their own quirks in who they chose to give powers to. Some preferred nice girls, others liked crazy ones, and some were just a damn mystery in terms of their logic of choice.""I see..." Carol nods. "But are they still human?">Yeah, besides the magic, they're just as human as anybody else.>No, they're pretty much monsters now.>Other
>>30289224>No, they're pretty much monsters now.Get it in her head that they're not to be trusted.
>>30289224>Yeah, besides the magic, they're just as human as anybody else.Us humans tend to turn to violence to resolve differences. The problem is, we still don't know why MG decided to turn against us.
>>30289224>Other"Not really, carol. They'll still act and think like one most of the time but they dont age when they're contracted. They're more than human now."
>>30289224>>Yeah, besides the magic, they're just as human as anybody else.
>>30289224"Before the war? Yeah. "Now, I don't know. I would like to say yes. But things are never as black and white as we would like them."
>>30289224>Yeah, besides the magic, they're just as human as anybody else.
>>30289343Here>>30289325I'll throw in my support for this instead.
>>30289224>Yeah, besides the magic, they're just as human as anybody else.Without magic, they're just humans to be captured. We don't want Carol killing Heart Lancer just because she's a former MG.
>>30289508But that begs the question as to what degree magic/companion still remains in a former MG.
>>30289224"Well, for the most part, yes, in the fact that they still feel and act like them." You sigh. "But with their powers and the fact they don't age? You could probably consider them more than human.""I see..." Carol nods. "So, if they're still sorta human, why attack their own kind? From what I understand Invaders don't fight each other.""Heh, humans have been fighting each other since they figured out how to stand on two legs." You laugh lightly. "All I know is, their reasons for fighting us aren't natural, and that the Companions have something to do with it. But... I just don't know the specifics, or exactly why in particular.""Really, nothing?""Before I killed him, my Companion said it was just the next stage in their plan." You sigh. "Hmmm..." Carol frowns. However, before the either of you can say anything else, the plane shudders as it makes its landing."We have arrived at our destination." The pilot announces. "Please stay in your seats until the plane has come to full and complete stop."The plane then taxis off the runway, where a mobile stair is waiting. You, Carol, and Leo then disembark from the plane, where you see three people waiting for you on the tarmac. Two were quite obviously bodyguards, judging from their attire and weapons. The third was a fairly older, middle aged man. (cont)
>>30289829"Ah, welcome to Haven!" The man smiles warmly. "I'm Jager Sturmfuhrer, CEO of DEMONS and operator of the Haven private resort! Though you could just call me Jager. Even I'll admit my last name is a mouthful!"Huh, you had heard of DEMONS before. One of the bigger PMCs, even before the War. Last your remembered, they had made quite the profit selling their services in the war, and continue to do so. Now you understand how this island was able to exist."I suppose you know who we are." You say."Heh, good old Brutty told me all about you, but who wouldn't know about the famous Alice Archer?" Jager grins. "I have to say, it's a serious honor having you down here.""Likewise." You say politely."Well, come on, I can give you guys the full VIP tour, if you want!">I feel like heading straight to my room.>Show us the resort areas.>Show us how your operation here works.>Other
>>30289874>Show us the resort areas.
>>30289874>>Show us the resort areas.
>>30289874>>Show us the resort areas.>>Show us how your operation here works."Carol, greet the nice man. And don't crush him this time."
>>30289874>Show us the resort areas.>Jager Sturmfuhrer>biased Merc
PhD, head of a private resort as well as former PMC, Jager sure is well rounded.
>>30289874>>Show us the resort areas.We're on vacation here.
>>30289874....really?....Really?*sigh* I do hope we won't deal with the bullshit *i'ma overprotective mama* shit like the last quest yesterday.
>>30289874>Show us how your operation here works.It seemed like it was more than just a vacation home, I think? So what's up here.
>>30290022Carol can play with Falynn and Char if she promises not to eat them.
>>30289874>OtherIntroduce your companions.
>>30289874"Sure, show us the resort areas, then." You say."Great!" Jager snaps his fingers and a trio of black SUVs pulls up onto the tarmac. "Now, Brutty's told me about Leo but I'm afraid I got nothing on this girl here..." He says, motioning to Carol."Oh, that's Carol." You say my daughter."Really?" Jager raises an eyebrow as he looks at you and her."Adopted." You say quickly."Oh, well, whatever works for you." Jager shrugs and chuckles. "Got a set of twins myself. A pair of little hellions they are!"With that, you all board one of the SUVs, and the zoom off toward the actual resort."Say," Jager turns his head back toward you. "Old Brutty didn't give me too many details, but, Carol isn't exactly normal, is she?">Nope. Perfectly human.>Yeah, she's special.>No comment. >Other
>>30290078I don't trust the filthy faggots anon to NOT go the bullshit like yesterday.
>>30290207>>Yeah, she's special.
>>30290207>Yeah, she's special.Shes my daughter, of course she's special

>>30290442I don't get it, is that a referenc to another merc quest?
Maybe this is JAGER ALTER and hes married to Karla
>>30290465Valkyrian Merc Quest 1 & 2, his first two quests.
>>30290241"She's my daughter. Of course she's special." You respond as if it were the most obvious thing in the world."Ha! That's a good answer!" Jager laughs. The SUVs then pull up to the main complex of buildings located near the coast. Upon exiting, Jager motions to the massive building in front of you."Well, to start off the tour, this is the main hotel. It's really like any resort hotel, complete with room service that doesn't taste like crap!"Jager then motions for you to follow him inside."Now, we've got various facilities here to cater to our clients' needs. There's our beachfront area, a full spa, and a fully stocked recreation area for our more trigger happy customers!">Check out the beach.>Check out the spa.>Check out the "recreation area".>Other
>>30290600>Check out the "recreation area"."What kind of guns do you have?"
>>30290600>>Check out the beach.Because theres a Uomi scene in the next episode that I hope merc will use
>>30290600>Check out the beach.>Check out the spa.>Check out the "recreation area".Check these out in this order, than relax on the beach.
>>30290498One can only hope?Merc, Please?
>>30290600>Check out the beach.>Check out the spa.>Check out the "recreation area".In that order
>>30290600>>Check out the "recreation area".
>>30290600>Check out the spa.a massage sounds good.
>>30290600>Check out the beach.
>>30290600>Check out the spa.We probably have some terrible aches that need soothing.
>>30290600>Check out the shooting rangeGuuuuuuuns.
>>30290600"I don't know, how about all of them?" You ask."Okay, full tour, here we go!" Jager laughs.And so you spend basically the whole day touring the place, with Jager being your personal guide for the day. And you have to admit, Haven is a pretty nifty place.In addition to the regular beach, there was also a small dock where you could rent out boats to various kinds to go out to see. They even had a small underwater station for divers to hang out at. You were pretty sure Carol was going to love (and hopefully not eat) all of the marine life that could be found offshore.The spa, you found out, was not just to pamper clients, but also doubled as a top tier rehab facility. You noticed quite a few amputees and other obviously wounded soldiers trying to overcome or deal with their new conditions. Definitely would be a lot of interesting people to talk to there. Hell, you couldn't even remember when you had a decent manicure...Finally, there was the "recreation area", which was pretty much every gun nut's dream come true. Not only was there a gym and firing range, but there was also a fully set up MOUT facility clients could use to test their skills against either themselves are against others. Leo was dying to check it out, and to be honest, you were more than a little interested as well.Finally, by the end, Jager gets a call on his cell phone. He turns away for a second so you can't hear what he's saying, but he quickly hangs up and turns back to you."Sorry, that was the wife. I gotta go see what she needs. She's a real ballcrusher!" He chuckles. "I'm sure you know how to get to your rooms, but if not, just ask an attendant!"With that, Jager, walks off, still tailed by his two bodyguards.Huh, weird guy."I suppose we should get some rest." Leo yawns. "It's starting to get dark.""But I want to see more!" Carol whines.>Leo's right. We can look around all we want in the morning.>Eh, I'm going to explore a bit more with Carol.>Other
>>30291090>>Eh, I'm going to explore a bit more with Carol.
>>30291090>Eh, I'm going to explore a bit more with Carol.
>>30291090>Eh, I'm going to explore a bit more with Carol.Spa.
>>30291090>>Eh, I'm going to explore a bit more with Carol
>>30291090>>Leo's right. We can look around all we want in the morning.We might be here awhile. let's not get her board on the first day
>>30291090"You go on ahead, Leo. I'll keep an eye on Carol." You say."Sure thing, Alice." Leo sighs. "Don't get us in trouble on the first day, you hear?""Yeah yeah. You know me." You wave him off."Yeah, that's exactly the point. I DO know you." Leo rebuts.Well, he sorta had a point there."I promise to to blow anything or kill anyone."With that, Leo makes his way to the elevator, while Carols starts skipping off. You move off to follow her. However, Carol doesn't seem interested in any of the places you've previously toured."Carol, where are you going?" You sigh."I just got this really curious feeling." Carol says as she skips along. "Feels like something's calling to me. Not really my name, but, it's kinda hard to explain...""From where?" You narrow your eyes.Carol stops and points out one of the windows to the other side of the complex facing away from the beach, farther inland. "It's coming from there.">Let's go check it out.>Sorry, we're not supposed to go there.>Other
>>30291652>Let's go check it out.Why are we not supposed to go inland?
>>30291652>Let's go check it out.
>>30291652>>Let's go check it out.Are we armed? Just incase of course.
>>30291652>>Sorry, we're not supposed to go there.Let's not get into something on our first day
>>30291652>Sorry, we're not supposed to go there.
>>30291652>Sorry, we're not supposed to go there.butt fuck it>Let's go check it out.
>>30291652welp, there goes any hope of a proper vacation
>>30291652>Sorry, we're not supposed to go there.Ahhh, what the hell.>Let's go check it out.
>>30291652OtherCall Jager. Ask him what's over there.
>>30291652I'll change from >>30291759 to seconding >>30291827
>>30291827Yes, let's do this
>>30291827Yeah, we should probably do that. Tell him to give us an honest answer so as to allay our curiosity.
>>30291827Voting against this. If it's calling Carol, then it's already pretty skevy and Jager will tighten up security.We can do a sneaking mission
>>30291652"I guess we can go check it out, you sigh."You follow Carol as she follows the hallway in the direction of the place drawing her attention. However, you very quickly reach a dead end. "Are you done yet, Carol?" You sigh."Nope." Carol shakes her head. "It's farther out."Now that you're closer, you can see the complex ahead was separate from the resort, which a security wall with guards patrolling the area. Huh, you wonder if it had anything to do with Jager's business. Thinking quickly, you take out your cell phone and dial his number."This is Jager." You hear his voice."Hey Jager, it's Alice, I have a quick question." You say."Yeah?""That walled off complex that's further inland. What's it for?""Oooooh, I'm afraid I can't tell you that. Trade secret and all. I should've mentioned earlier that there are places marked off limits.""Huh...">Okay, thanks for warning me.>Try to draw a bit more info out of him.>Other
>>30292176>>Okay, thanks for warning me.
>>30292176>Try to draw a bit more info out of him.USE THAT
>>30292176>draw more info if possible, and use THAT if need be.
>>30292205Pretty sure it doesn't work well on the phone
>>30292176>>Try to draw a bit more info out of him."Well you know the feeling when someone is drawing a bead on you?I'm getting something like that from that place so it feels like you're playing with fire over there. Besides, if you are, wouldn't it be better to work with the Bureau? We could probably help each other out there."
>>30292176>OtherCould you be any more suspicious? Tell me this, is it the bureau's business? If it is, I'll drop it, if not, well..."
>>30292176>OtherCarol is reacting to some of Juju Jager. Just fair warning and all.
>>30292205>>30292248WE POUT SO HARD IT WORKS OVER WIRELESS AUDIBLE TRANSMISSIONSDo it.>>30292176Seconding >>30292205 & >>30292248Also, add "If you ruin my hard earned vacation with whatever magical fire you're playing with, I will use your skull as a desk lamp."
>>30292261>>30292263These as well.If its dangerous and he comes clean, we can probably work together.
>>30292292Kind of a strange feeling threatening Jager, but then again this is Jager Alter.
>>30292402It's playful threatening.Truth is, no matter where we went something would have happened. I do wonder what Disney World would have been like...
>>30292498Some sort of cult like at the warehouses?
>>30292498Walt Disney himself on his toilet, siphoning happiness from the people having fun.
>>30292528Possibly. I kinda would have liked that...
>>30292176"Come on, Jager. The least you can do is tell us why we aren't allowed there." You sigh. "Or maybe I should go tell Bruttenholm how much a big baby you are?""Argh! Fine!" Jager sighs. "Look, we also rent out our facilities for private use. Some of the guys setting up shop here do some seriously secret and possibly slightly dangerous research. I'd love tell you what's going on, but I can't. I got a reputation to uphold, you know? Plus my wife would kill me."You briefly wonder what kind of woman Jager's wife was."Besides, everything's running business as usual, so don't sweat it. Just enjoy your vacation, all right?""Sure, whatever." You sigh as you hang up the phone."Well?" Carol asks.>Come on, let's go back to the hotel room. We've got a big day tomorrow.>Something's fishy. It's time to do some SNEAKING, Carol.>Other

>>30292698No, I want to enjoy my vacation, we've already had one fucked up
>>30292590Ask this.Maybe Carol can sneak in?
>>30292698Just for once, I want /tg/ to take the sane option.
>>30292710Leo is on the resort, but Egan or anybody on the Bureau is still in orbit.If Carol is sensing something then it means is either Mahou Shoujo OR Invader related and it has to be monitored either way.
>>30292558Merc, I'm changing my vote from >Something's fishy. It's time to do some SNEAKING, Carol.to>>30292694Let the Bureau that Carol senses something on the off-limits facility.
>>30292787This. We ignore this now, it might bite us in the butt later when we're trying to relax.
>>30292558"Come on, let's go back to the hotel room. We've got a big day tomorrow." You sigh, taking Carol's hand and dragging her away. "I didn't come here to stir up more trouble.""Okay..." Carol sighs.While you didn't appreciate private companies researching Invaders and Magical Girls, it was just a sad reality of the world you lived in. There really weren't any laws against it, as long as you had the proper credentials. Plus, a lot of governments didn't want to totally rely on the Bureau for protection.Leaving the issue for another day, you take Carol to your hotel room, which was a pretty nice suite. Some soft snoring has already let you know that Leo is fast asleep."All right Carol, it's bedtime. You go to sleep and you STAY asleep, you got that? If I find out you've snuck out in the night, somebody is going to get hurt REAL bad. You got that?""Yes, Mom..." Carol sighs."Good." You say, stripping off your shirt and pants and sliding into bed. "And I"m a light sleeper, too. If you try to sneak out, I'LL KNOW."A little frightened squeak from Carol lets you know that she got the message, and you rest your head and close your eyes...Your sleep is thankfully dreamless this time. Maybe the tropical climate really WAS helping.When you wake up, you see Leo and Carol already up and about. Leo looks like he's just freshly showed and Carol is busy staring at the TV, as if entranced by it."Oh, you're finally awake." Leo grins. "We're planning on getting some breakfast then stopping by one of those places Jager showed us. Got any preferences?">To the beach.>To the spa.>To the recreation area.>Other

Rolled 1>>30293399TIEBREAKER TIME(this is not a vote!)1. Beach2. Spa
Looks like it's time for some fanservice! I wonder if Carol can use that liquid to change into other things?
>>30293487"Well, no sense going to a tropical island if we don't go to the beach." You say, stretching and yawning."Good idea." Leo nods. "We'll wait for you to get cleaned up and then we'll get some breakfast.Breakfast was... interesting to say the least. Even though she hadn't been using her abilities much, she still had a pretty voracious appetite. Two plates of pancakes and a full plate of bacon and sausages later, Carol leans back in her seat and burps."Carol..." You glare."Oh right, excuse me!" Carol adds."Jesus, I'm glad our food bills are being handled by the Bureau." Leo blinks. "Keeping her fed is going to be a total pain.""I'm sure we'll only ever be able to take her to a buffet once." You sigh. With breakfast done, you all head out to the beach. You first stop at a changing booth. Leo steps into a stall, while Carol just morphs a simple white one piece swimsuit onto herself.Goddamn you'd kill to be able to do that.Sighing, you step into your own stall and open up your bag. You notice that there was an extra set you don't remember packing. You scowl as you pull out a rather skimpy two piece swimsuit. It had to be some sick joke, either by Leo or Egan, you couldn't figure out which. >Stick with your one piece. You don't really feel like showing off.>Fuck it, might as well see what it feels like.>Other
>>30293638>Fuck it, might as well see what it feels like.Fucking fanservice ep guys.

>>30293824Nah, we stick to speedos, but most tend to go for shorts and bermudas after a certain age/weight (old man in a speedo is too much) and outsiders wear anything from bermudas, to trunks to speedos. Never seen a honest to god banana hammock, lucky-ly
>>30293922> banana hammockWhy
>>30293978Don't know, never seen one and always dreaded the day I discovered those were a thing. I'll stop talking about male swimwear, I swear.
>>30293638Well, fuck it. At least the only people you know who would see you wearing this thing would be Leo and Carol, and they could be trusted not to squeal or make a big deal out of it.You hope.When you step out of the stall, Carol just ogles at you, while Leo doesn't say anything and just gives a thumbs up."Ooooh! It's so pretty! Can I-""No, Carol, you do NOT copy it. Is that clear?""Okay..." Carol pouts."And YOU." You point to Leo. "No word of this back home. No pictures either. Clear?""Crystal." Leo nods, stills entranced.Well, it at least felt a little bit good to know that people actually considered you attractive.Gah! What the hell were you thinking?!

>>30294515"Let's do some diving. Never had much of chance to put all that swim training to use." You say."Sure." Leo shrugs."Cool!" Carol grins.The three of you rent out a boat, which takes you out to deeper waters. The driver informs you that you've got pretty much until sundown to do whatever you want as long as you don't wander off too far. As a precaution, all three of you are given GPS locator bands in case you get lost.With that, the three of you drop into the water. >Go check out the nearby reef.>Go check out that underwater station.>Do some undersea hunting.>Other

Leo shakes his head and grins. "Why not?""Ooooh, I wanna see a shark in action!" Carol nods rapidly.With that, the three of you swim out to deeper waters. There isn't much activity besides a passing zodiac patrol boat. Carol waves at the guards manning it and they wave back before continuing on their route. "Right, this looks good." You say, plunging your head into the water to get a good look. There's quite a lot of stuff down there.>Just do something simple Go look for some crabs and lobster.>Hard mode! Fight a shark!>Other

>>30295055As you search, you finally catch sight of a shark. Not exactly a Great White or anything particularly noteworthy, but it was shark, which would serve your purposes."I found one! Let's get it!" You say."Wait!" Carol frowns. "I'm trying to get used to this!"You see Carol repeatedly dunking her head under the water, coming up every so often to gasp for air."Carol, what are you doing?" You."Trying to figure out how gills work." Carol mumbles. "The scientists didn't program that biomorph into me, so I have to figure out myself. Or, I could just eat a fish and assimilate it, and I could work on it from there...">Sure, go on ahead.>That's cheating, Carol.>Other

>>30295458>That's cheating, Carol.Learn how to do it from scratch, then you'll be able to create abilities on demand.
>>30295458>Sure, go on ahead.She probably doesn't have enough experience yet to actually properly understand how they work. Start by copying what works, then build off of that to make your own.

Rolled 97>>30295458>>30295545THISher assimilation is good, but considering this is down tiem, it'd be good for her to get better at improving her own abilities on her own
>>30295458"Sure, go on ahead." You say."Okay!" Carol grins and dives under the water. Looking down, you note that even in human form, she can swim unnaturally fast. She then plucks a fish out of the water and bites down on it, literally ripping it in half. Curious, you dive down as well to get a closer look. You see Carol pause for a moment in the water. You then see little slits opening in Carol's neck. Carol turns to you and gives you a thumbs up.Her hands then start morphing as well into webbed claws and she shoots off with even greater speed.Damn, the girl learned fast. Unfortunately, your lungs start burning so you swim back to the surface."So how did things go?" Leo asks."She's a scarily fast learner." You say.And then Carol resurfaces, this time with a shark in her arms. From the looks of it, she had broken its neck by nearly twisting its goddamn head off."Got one!" She says happily."That was fast..." Leo frowns."Damnit." You frown. You weren't going to get shown up by your own daughter! You take a deep breath and dive down. You spot a shark directly below you. It was pretty big, though, bigger than Carol's...>Attack!>Look for an easier target.>Other
>>30295744>Attack!We won't get anywhere if we don't use these opportunities. GO FOR IT

If Loki is somehow in Alice's head, does that mean that he could possibly take over her body?
>>30295744Fuck it, you were going to do it. You needed to prove you were still the top hunter around here. With a surge, you dive down to intercept the shark below you.>roll 1d20
>>30295946YES!!!!!! Who's your da-mommy?
>>30295999ALICE ISWE'LL BE THE BEST MOTHER EVER
>>30295946>and then Alice bite a shark
Do you think if Carol were to lose biomass, she would transform into a child until she regains it?
>>30296079she can't really transform into what she already is
>>30295946With one lunge, you bring your knife slashing down and it goes straight through the shark's head and into its brain. The giant predatory fish twitches and spasms violently before going still. Satisfied, you grab it by the tail and swim back up for the surface."Wow, that was cool, Mom!" Carol squeals, her eyes sparkling in awe. "Heh, yeah, I guess it was." You grin. "What about you, Leo?""Eh, I think I'll pass." "Heh, you're the only guy here and you turn out to be the biggest pussy out of all of us." You tease."Says the girl with superstrength who's takign care of a genetic superweapon." Leo retorts."Ah, I was just kidding."You spend the next few hours touring the waters, and hunting down the occasional specimen. However, you boat operator finally stops you at four sharks and a tub full of lobsters, as his boat is running out of space.When you get back to shore, you and Leo set up a fire pit, since you might as well get all this stuff cooked. You attract the attention of a few beachgoers, who seem mighty impressed, both by your hunting skill and Carol's voracious appetite.However, you did NOT appreciate her little prank where she suddenly grew shark teeth just to scare you. Damn kids.---The next day starts just like the last, with Carol voraciously cleaning off her multiple plates of pancakes and bacon, much to the mix of amusement and horror from the chefs."So, what's the plan for today?" Leo asks again.>Spa>Recreation center.>Other
>>30296195>>Recreation center.We're have carol scare leo.By morphing into full mode when shes out of sight running jnto leo.

>>30296195>Recreation center.>she suddenly grew shark teeth just to scare youThat's adorable
>>30296195"The recreation center will do for today." You say."Cool." Leo grins. "It should be good.""Are there cool things to eat there?" Carol asks."No, just guns. Lots and lots of guns." You say. "Oh..." Carol frowns."Hey, guns are cool too. I'll show you!" You say, grinning.You all make the trek to the recreation center, where you first sign to the guard at the front entrance. Upon entering, you're almost immediately brought to tears.It was all so... BEAUTIFUL!On one side, there was the shooting range, and just adjacent you catch sight of the armory, where there were countless weapons of all types stocked. Sure, the Bureau had some nice stuff, but there were a lot of things they didn't see the need of procuring. But oh my god ALL THOSE GUNS.And then there was the MOUT course, which was a full on simulated town with surrounding woodlands Definitely more hardcore than airsoft or laser tag the civvies had to settle with..>Go to the shooting range. >Go to the MOUT course.>Other

>>30296569>>Go to the shooting range.teach the daughteru proper firearm safe handling
>>30296569"Let's go to the shooting range." You say, leading Carol over. Thankfully, Heph already taught her all the basics, so all you need to do is show her the finer points."Oh wow, there's so many..." Carol says as she looks into the armory.Yeah, almost too many. Even you're unsure of what to use.>SMGs>Assault Rifles>Sniper Rifles>Machine Guns>Rocket Laun- HOLY SHIT THEY GOT ROCKET LAUNCHERS?!>Other

>>30296874>>Assault Riflescan learn from there, nice and versatile and adaptable
>>30296874Eh fuck it, you were going to show her a little bit of everything.Much of the day is spent with you showing Carol how to fire guns of all kinds, since firing an assault rifle had a fundamentally different technique than the pistols Heph taught her. Same went for machine guns. Carol, of course, is a quick learner, and she's quickly handling the weapons like any pro would.Which gave you time to indulge in one of your guilty pleasures."IT'S ROCKET LAUNCHER TIME!" You grin."Oh no..." Leo facepalms."What's wrong?" Carol blinks."Alice gets... reckless when it comes to rockets." Leo sighs."Oh please, you mean AWESOME!" You say as you pull one mean looking launcher off the rack. This is gonna be FUN!""I'd stand back if I were you, Carol." Leo warns.>roll 1d20
>>30297202Oh thank, Dice God.
>>30297202Your aim is nearly perfect, and the rocket spirals off into the air, spitting fire and smoke in its wake before landing on the target, completely obliterating it."AW YEAH, FIRST TRY!" You hoot."It's a miracle you didn't blow US up." Leo sighs."COOL!" Carol squeals, jumping up and down. "Let me try! Let me try!"Huh, should you let Carol have a go at it? It was pretty dangerous stuff...>Y>N>Other

>>30297292YShe can fight a motherfucking shark and handles the other guns as a pro, might as well be better than us.
>>30297292>Bison of course.jpg
>>30297292"Aw hell, why not." You reload the rocket launcher and hand it over to Carol. "Now be very, VERY careful, Carol. Don't hit the trigger until you're sure you're ready to fire, okay?""Okay." Carol nods, taking the launcher without hesitating. Like you, she had the strength to handle the heavy weapon easily.She fires it off with a BANG. It's not quite on target, but still hits the ground and explodes with a satisfying fireball."That was pretty good for a first shot." You say."Wait..." Carol says, flexing her arm. "I've got a surprise!""What?" You blink."Well, I figured carrying a gun around all the time would be a lot of trouble, and I just sort of thought, what if I could just BE the gun?""What are you talking abou-"Carol then raises her arm, the entire thing turning black as carapace forms around it. A hole then opens up in her palm and you hear several loud puffs.Suddenly, one of the targets is pierced through by a trio of massive, bonelike spines. Carol's arm twitches again, and another spine shoots out of her arm, this one exploding on contact."Ha! I knew I could copy it in some way!" Carol grins.You're left speechless.>That was AWESOME!>That's kinda scary.>Other

You motion for your daughter to follow you."Okay!"As you step out to the prep area for the MOUT course, you can see a few patrons milling about, casually talking.>Challenge them to a battle.>Just keep it between the three of you.>Other

>>30297976"Hey, us three are going into the course." You say rather loudly. "Anybody want in?""Team Spectre will answer the call!" Three soldiers step in. "We were itching for a fight as well!""Oh, cool." You nod. "Rules of engagement?""ARs, only. Inside the town." Team Spectre's leader says."Acceptable." You nod.With that, you start prepping for the match. You and Leo strap on your combat vests, each containing laser receivers that would notify you if you took a lethal hit or not. You also helped Carol put her own vest on.Then you all armed yourselves, picking up simulation M4s. Of course, you weren't going to firing live round at each other. The MOUT firearms are only loaded with blanks to simulate gunfire. Each pull of the trigger would cause a little block attachment at the end of the barrel to shoot a laser out, which would trigger the vests. Simple and safe.Team Spectre moves to the opposite side of town to get ready, while you, Leo, and Carol stand in the deployment zone on your side of the town.Then a siren blares, signifying the beginning of combat.>Everybody split up to search them out.>Everybody stick together.
