Today is a repeat of yesterday, tomorrow will be a repeat of today. Fitness Day is always a chore...You find yourself setting up chairs on the vibrant green athletic fields, muttering under your breath about the unfairness of this situation. Just because you helped to resolve the terrorist attack doesn't mean you also agreed to help with all this set up. You thought the bleachers would be enough, but you've been setting up chair after chair for hours now. Do you really need to be able to sit the entire city? Surely some other people skip out on Fitness Day, just like you used to. You finish a row of chairs and have a seat, your laziness finally overcoming what little work ethic you had, and try to grab some rest. You look up at the clear blue sky and find yourself slipping away. The last five days have really caught up with you. You used your powers so much recently, you feel like you're always on the brink of collapsing from hunger and exhaustion. You can't imagine how some people use their powers every day. You close your eyes and try to drift off...
>>30470454"Good work."You feel a cold sensation on your cheek and open your eyes. Claire is looking down at you, holding a carbonated drink to your face. You're not feeling particularly thirsty, not really, but you take the drink anyway and help yourself. Claire nods at you and takes a seat beside you, setting down a basket on her lap. You can smell food inside, and you can already tell that it's home cooked. You see where this is going, but you're not sure if you want to go along with it."It's early, but I wished to bring you some snacks, Captain. Nobody worked harder than you this week, and so I decided to reward you."Claire puts a hand to her collar and pops open a few buttons."I'm prepared to reward you in a different way if you have a different sort of hunger. Don't worry about preparations...I'm ready to go, any time.">...Just the snack will be fine.>Didn't you need to catch up with the Chief?>Rin was working on the track, wasn't she?[ Twitter is here https://twitter.com/DXR27291052Setting document is here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rqpLh08K6gZ2EgxGs3oxAzWeh7ZsuSGlKC2sk755928/Archive listings are here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Double%20Cross%20QuestAs usual, we're going to give this first prompt a little longer than usual, to make sure everyone makes it here on time.]
>>30470468>...Just the snack will be fine.
This is the last thread of this arc! I'll try to do some longer posts to make up for not doing much this last week, so I might miss my usual 15 minute response time.
>>30470468Damnit Claire>...Just the snack will be fine.
>>30470468>>>...Just the snack will be fine.
>>30470468>...Just the snack will be fine.She might be crazy, but she is a damn good cook.
>>30470468>...Just the snack will be fine.Damn you making delicious food and not being an irredeemable nuisance.
>>30470468>>Rin was working on the track, wasn't she?
>>30470517Thanks for the heads up OP.
>>30470468>Rin was working on the track, wasn't she?why are you people actually acknowledging her advances
>>30470468>Rin was working on the track, wasn't she?
>>30470468...Just the snack, please. "Understood."Claire opens up the basket, taking out a pastry. It's still warm, even though she must have made it hours ago. The crust looks flaky and is cooked to a beautiful golden brown. You smell the hint of butter and sugar in the air as Claire turns to you. Instinctively, you reach out to take it, but Claire stands up instead."Please let me, Captain."Let her what? Claire positions herself in front of you, dusting the flakes of pastry off her skirt. She leans over, presenting the snack to you. You now see why she popped her collar as she pulls her blazer away. She doesn't just want to feed you, she intended to give you a peep show either way. That's sneaky, Claire."Say 'ahh'..."Sneaky, but not sneaky enough. You won't be tempted by such an obvious ploy. You bite down on the pastry and tear it free from her grasp. A few crumbs tumble down into the crevice behind her blouse, an act which you're sure she's engineered somehow as you begin to enjoy your snack. It's great. It's like her food gets better every time you eat it. You'd better stop taking her food so much, you feel like you could get addicted to this stuff."So forceful...Do you really like it that much?"Well, it is incredibly good. But you can't tell her that. You grunt and turn away, finishing your snack before choosing to face her again. As you look at the rows of chairs, you realize you only have a couple dozen or so more to go. It shouldn't be long before you can really relax and take it easy for the rest of the day. You get up to go pick up more folding seats, but Claire catches the back of your jacket."Why don't you let me do that, Captain? I'm sure you'd rather look around the grounds instead of being here all day.">...You really should finish this job.>Why don't you go take a look at the soccer fields? There's supposed to be a good game later today.>You could kill some time jogging around the track, you suppose.

>>30470983>...you really should finish this job.
>>30470983Soccer fields, it will get us away from Claire. I was hesitant to leave her, as she always seems to get into trouble on her own, but I decided that was too meta.
>>30471039>>30471052You know that drugs don't work on you any more. Whatever Claire's secret ingredient is, it's not some kind of narcotic.>>30471044The list of events that were going to be attacked is 7:00 Archery meet.10:30 Track meet.14:00 Soccer Match20:00 FinaleThere are other events, but these are the main attractions.
>>30470983>...you really should finish this job.Come on, we don't want Chief adding time to our sentence I mean parole I mean "observation period" for negligence when we're so close to being done with this chore.
>>30471106>You know that drugs don't work on you any more. Whatever Claire's secret ingredient isShining Void is in on it.[shadowruns intensify]
>>30471106what about what's her face, that can make drugs that effect overed?
>>30471147>>30471150You'd notice if your food was drugged. I promise.
>>30470983>>...You really should finish this job.
>>30471166Even if the drug was love?
>>30471248>Claire has found a way to distill love into a physical form and is attempting to get Cap out of his depressionD'aaaww
>>30471248It's probably her period blood/
It came up in the last thread, but it bears repeating. Rin is very close to going insane and we should do something about it.
>>30471554Hand her a copy of Persona. tell her social links work
>>3047155450% encroachment isn't that bad. As long as you return to <100% after combat you aren't going full gjaum. She could use some help with dat baggage though.
>>30471570Because she's psychologically unstable and doesn't have any friends.
>>30471554I don't think DXR would send a character off the deep end so soon after introducing her.I mean, we've had exactly one chance to interact with her, which we took.
>>30471570Having her sane is less work than dealing with another psycho.
>>30471603How is that the Captains problem?
>>30470983You were never a big fan of soccer, or any sport really, but maybe you should go see the soccer field? The teams there should already be warming up, maybe you can see something interesting."A splendid idea, Captain. Do not worry one second about this task. I shall finish it to your level of expertise or die trying."Okay, Claire, whatever. You wave to Claire and head off in the direction of the soccer fields, intent on killing some time with the least amount of effort possible.--As you expected, the soccer teams are out in full force, all readying themselves for the big game in a couple hours. There are two fields being used, one for the boy's teams and one for the girl's. Given that you're a somewhat healthy young man, you find your eyes drifting over to the girl's fields for the most part. Looks like it's your team facing off against one of those private schools. Their blue and white uniform is much cleaner looking than the standard gym wear that the girls from your school are forced to wear. They look a lot better at the game too...well, except for one girl that keeps tripping every five steps. You watch her for a bit, amusing yourself at her expense until, finally, she is sent over to the bleachers with you to rest.
>>30471603It looked like she got paired with Fallen Angel, like we are with Claire.
>>30471632Upon closer inspection, you realize you know this girl. Isn't this, Rin? She heads up to the rows above you and begins fussing about in a bag, mumbling about a water bottle or something like that. She doesn't seem to have noticed you yet, so you try your best to keep a low profile. Or you try anyway. It's a little hard to go unnoticed when she falls over and bashes her head into your own. Cradling your freshly cracked skull, you turn around to bark at her out of reflex and find she's already blubbering. It's only after she wipes her eys that she recognizes you."W-Wild Card, sir! I-I didn't think you'd be here...I'm sorry!"It's not like it's her fault. Well, it is, but you're not mad. "Ooh...I've already messed up so many times. They really should have asked someone else. I'm such a klutz. A stupid klutz."You weren't mad, but you will be if she keeps this pity party up. You try to think of something to change the subject.>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.>How did she get on the soccer team anyway?>Why did she join the UGN? She must know that they're all crazy.
>>30471632>she is sent over to the bleachers with you to rest. SHIT SHIT SHIT SOCIAL INTERACTION WITH OUR PEERS ABORT ABORT ABORT!
>>30471648>>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.Looks like Rinfags got their wish.
>>30471648>>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.>>Why did she join the UGN? She must know that they're all crazy.
>>30471648>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.No seriously we were not going to really rape youthen>Why did she join the UGN? She must know that they're all crazy.
>>30471648>Apologize for Claire being Claire at her...
>>30471648>Why did she join the UGN? She must know that they're all crazy.These are the hard-hitting questions that need answers.
>>30471648>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.
>>30471648>You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized.Letting her be in the same room as Claire was a horrible miscalculation on our part. >Why did she join the UGN? She must know that they're all crazy.Seriously. Rin's self-esteem might be dangerously low, but she's enough like a normal person to realize that the inmates are running the asylum.
>>30471632Hmm, I do believe Claire is about to go full evil on us. Probably got infected by whatever was puppeting Diablo when she fought the sadololi.
>>30471953I had the same thought, but then I dismissed it, not believing a puppetmaster could pull of the full Claire experience. If it is a sleeper-effect though...
>>30471953I fully endorse killing her to save her.
>>30472030I don't know, she's acting rather tame for Claire...
>>30472051Nah, we finally figured out how to generate new skills with her.
>>30471648...You should really apologize for that time Claire tied her up. She must be traumatized."Huh?"Rin looks confused for a few moments, screwing up her face as she searches her memory. Suddenly, she practically glows red and looks away from you, nervously spinning the water bottle in her hands. After a short pause, she looks down at her feet."I'm sorry!"She's sorry? For what? She really didn't do anything wrong in this case, it's Claire that was--"I was j-just nervous, that's all... I must have hurt your feelings."Now wait just a minute here. You're completely lost, and Rin isn't making a bit of sense. You ask for Rin to tell you her side of the story."R-right, so...After I woke up in your room, B-Bullets told me you were, um, interested in me. I told her I'd never done anything before so she made some suggestions and...I was overwhelmed. I mean, you're good looking...your fur is so nice...and nobody ever showed interest in me so I, uh, I just didn't know what to do and got scared..."Is she even blaming herself for this? This is ridiculous. You tell her that you were never going to do anything to her in the first place and she has nothing to be worried about."O-Oh. Yeah, I get it," Rin looks away, forcing a shaky smile, "Yeah. That's right. Nobody would really want to. Especially not after that. Sorry. Sorry!"Rin leaps to her feet and runs down the bleachers back onto the field, shouting apologies the whole way. You're not sure if you'll ever understand why she's so hard on herself, but eventually, you come to the conclusion that it's not your problem. You get up and leave the soccer fields behind, not wanting to be connected to that weirdo by society at large. --
>>30472124You still can't believe you already drove off that attack. It just felt too easy. But then again, didn't you want something easy? As you walk through the fields, you begin to see people filtering in and taking seats. Your watch tells you it's 6:45, so the day will be officially starting soon. A nagging feeling in the back of your mind tells you to be alert, but you know that you're in the clear. Shouldn't you just go find some place to take a nap?>Keep awake and listen to your gut.>Screw that, time for some sleep.>>30472062[I'll kill this shadowrun. That really is Claire. She's just still "satisfied". However, you can tell she's already getting hungry for Captain again.]
>>30472149>Keep awake and listen to your gut.[SHADOWRUNS INTENSIFY]
>>30472149>Keep awake and listen to your gut.The gut knows. Obey the gut.
>>30472149Nap timeSo does Rin really have Stockholm syndrome? Or did she lust want to fuck us?
>>30472149>>Keep awake and listen to your gut.There's still an Orcus at large and possibly an unidentified contact, if it wasn't Diablos in another face.
>>30472149>Keep awake and listen to your gut!
>>30472186>So does Rin really have Stockholm syndrome? Or did she lust want to fuck us?What do you think?
>>30472149>Keep awake and listen to your gut.Damnit Rin.
>>30472227oh god we ARE a harem protagonist!
>>30472149>Keep awake and listen to your gut.Trust our gut, it hasn't lead us wrong yet.And dear god, Captain is kinda dense.
>>30472149>>Keep awake and listen to your gut.DON'T YOU FUCKING SLEEP ON ME
>>30472227...well. It's a good thing we were able to resist Loony's fur that one time.
>>30472261Probably the greatest harem protag in existence since we don't even give a fuck about crazy bitches.
>>30472227Thank fucking god we didn't fight Lolidiablos
>>30472268I can just imagine. It would have been a very tsundere love. Stupid disgusting Luna, it's not like I like it when your fur brushes me during training.
>>30472308On that note, you should think about everyone who has seen you use your powers.
>>30472341I was already shipping yandere Diablos/Cap regardless of gender as soon as that second fight started.

>>30472341So Yeager loves us...that's going to be a plot point down the road. Speaking of which we should call that girl he was besotted with to make sure she's still ok.
>>30472341The fur only applies on contact, and I don't think we've used the howl since we got it.

>>30472613Wait, when did the ghost indicate an interest in us?
>>30472652because that's not fun to talk about
>>30472632None of them are going to believe that. Really, that answer would just be taken as us playing hard to get and encourage them to beget more aggressive and extreme.
>>30472652Because they're trying to be funny, I guess.
>>30472149You can't just sleep with this feeling in your gut. You have to go investigate this. Pushing past the crowd, you begin unconsciously sniffing the air. You don't know what you're looking for, really, but you're sure you'll know it when you see it. The strange looks of your peers don't bother you as you go on the prowl, beginning to pace the perimeter of the athletic meet. Someone, something is here. You're sure of it. It may just be those instincts Claire mentioned, but you can feel this wrongness. This intruder.Your eyes scan the crowd, glazing over everyone you know to not be a threat. Students, their parents, their friends, people from out of town, visitors from abroad....none of them are what you're looking for. What you're trying to find is that 'void'. Yes, that absence behind this entire situation. The one who spoke to Rin and that mysterious informant. He's here, you're sure of it.You check your watch. If he's going to strike, it would be best to strike...>At the 7:00 Archery meet.>At the 10:30 Track meet.>At the 14:00 Soccer Match>At the 20:00 Finale.
>>30472639Well, I don't see an issue with that, Sadololis are outside of the zone that I'm willing to find ways to avoid.Renegade Beings also fall into that zone.
>>30472689>>At the 10:30 Track meet.
>>30472689Damned if I know.
ok, what events do the traps we already found correspond to?I remember electro bleachers, but not what they were bleachers for,and the orcus tar, was that the parking lot?
>>30472689Is this a "go back and look at the clues" decision, a "wherever we pick, the bad guys retroactively picked it too" decision, an "I'm not telling" decision, or something else? I'm not sure which disarmed traps correspond to which events.
>>30472689I'm going to go with>At the 14:00 Soccer Matchsolely because Rin seems to be involved in it and I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to get rid of her since she's joined the UGN.
>>30472790I shouldn't tell. I won't screw you guys just because you couldn't pick something out, though
>>30472689>Go to all of them, in order, because fuckit you don't want mass casualties on you're head for being wrong.
>>30472689Can't be the Finale, Finale is too obvious, if an attack hasn't happened by then everyone is going to be focused on defending it.Archery Meet isn't crowded enough, it's not the most interesting thing to watch, and I doubt that everyone is here, there are going to be stragglers.The Soccer Match is separated into two fields which might make it hard to catch all of them at once.So I'd personally go after Track meet. >At the 10:30 Track meet.
>>30472689Okay, reviewing the previous threads, we took out the traps at the blacktop and the bleachers, and discovered another two (which the UGN disabled) at the playing fields and the tracks.So, I think the only possible targets are the archery meet and the finale, and we can easily observe both.
>>30472901It also can't be the soccer match because our instinct would have kept us there rather than leading us away.
>>30472983So those missing students WERE melted down to use as asphalt! I KNEW IT!
>>30472983I take it we failed.
>>30473014I fail to see how we could have possibly succeeded. QXR is acting like he's given us clues but I haven't noticed shit.
>>30473053I believe the clues where in the previous threads from this arc. Basically we're looking for an area we haven't cleared yet.
>>30473098So I'm supposed to open up all the previous threads, scour them for clues, and come back here to post before the time is up.Right. Okay.
>>30473136No, it's not like that.
>>30473160Well the only way I'm going to figure it out is if you tell me because I haven't got a fucking clue how any of the options are different to each other.
>>30473192It doesn't matter, he's writing already, you missed your chance, they're all dead because you were too dumb.
>>30473192I wouldn't give you a choice that was pass/fail with no clue. The choice affects something else entirely
>>30473192This is what you get for not voting "finish the job" earlier.
>>30472689>At the 20:00 Finale.Everyone's gonna be there, gathered in one place. Best time to strike, really.
>>30473213FUck it was too pick our partner for the fight
>>30473213Who we get partnered with to deal with the final bosses?
>>30473232Let's see, we chose the track right? Should be Fallen Angel.
>>30473316Passed out drunk somewhere.
>>30472689It has to be the track meet. Fortunately, even though you spent so long combing the area, you should be able to make it back to the meet in time. You dash through the crowds to make your way to the long, looping track and the many families waiting to see their children run. This is where the Chief and Rin were setting up earlier...just looking at these rows upon rows of seats reminds you of the hours you spent unfolding these stupid lawn chairs. But that's not important right now...--As you expected, this is where most of the people are today. The events are over so quickly that people come and go all the time, and the crowd never really gets bigger or smaller. The audience is lined up in a nice loop around the track and they're tightly packed due to the lack of elevated seating. The roar of the crowd hurts your ears as your strain your senses to find that one person who doesn't make a sound. What you're looking for here isn't really some sign, but rather the utter lack of it. A quiet spot in this sea of noise. ...And you find it, the one perfectly silent place in this entire field. You instantly rush it, grabbing for an otherwise empty space with your hand. You feel the softness of cotton and snatch the invisible target without a second thought. It's at that moment you feel it. You struggle to move, but everything happens in slow motion. You can see a sphere of muted colors spread out over the fields, grabbing everything as it expands. This is..."Yes. This is my territory now. You've gotten on my nerves for the last time!"
This will end in tears.
>>30473338No, I want to know which option was Lunatic option.
>>30473388You can see this person for what they are now. A young boy in a hooded jacket. He jumps from your slowed grasp and lands a few feet away. Even in your slowed state, you release your Warding. There's no way you can let him get away now, especially with this kind of control. Before you can move, you see him raise a hand. The chairs around him levitate and contort, forming a large mass of twisted metal and plastic. "Even you will die if you can't move. Get lost!"He's right, there's nothing you can do right now! The ball of junk hurtles towards you and--A bright crimson lance falls from the sky and pierces it to the ground. A small figure hops down in front of you, her shining blonde hair instantly recognizable. "How shameful, Wild Card. He would have killed you with no resistance."The Chief turns around and suddenly bites you on the shoulder. Is she crazy!? Instantly, though, you can feel your blood begin to move again, and your strength returns to your body She must be releasing whatever hold he has on you. After a moment, the Chief pushes you back and wipes her mouth with a handkerchief."Bullets will be here soon. For now, why don't we take care of this terrorist?"[Typing up first turn of combat. Sorry this is taking a while, so much to write]It's not like you have a choice.
>>30473416>ChiefWe picked well anons, we picked well.
>>30473416>chiefoh my god yesso the options were completely unrelated, then?
>>30473416"Even if there's two of you, I won't be so easy to beat. This entire field is my Domain. I make the rules! Up is down, down is up! Don't think you know what to expect!" You suddenly feel a strange sensation wash over you, and the colors of the world suddenly invert. What is..[ENEMY SKILL USED]"Here I come, UGN bastards!"He leaps forward, the world crumbling around him as he advances. With a wave of his hand, he rips up a track of land, casting the people stuck on it to either side. You try to dodge left but...you move right? That's not what you meant to do at all! Confused, you don't notice when the smashes you with the wall of earth. You look to the Chief, who seems to be having similar problems even standing. Eventually, the Chief bits down on her arm, letting loose a torrent of blood. It forms a mist around the two of you, and the terrorist jumps away from the crimson cloud. "This is just a stalling tactic, Wild Card. Go occupy him while I figure this out!"You don't need to be told twice. On shaky legs, you jump out of the blood mist and back into battle. However, the moment you get there, you already see a tree hurtling towards you. Your body won't respond right, everything's going wrong. Even so, you must...>Strike>Crash>Guard[New Partner Skill: Embrace: The Chief bites you and takes a portion of your blood. In return, she grants you unnatural vitality. Declare as part of any move.

>>30473582>StrikeToss the tree back at him.
Again, I am so sorry for being slow tonight.
>>30473582Okay, it's a Crash, but we can't Strike. If we Strike then we'll end up doing something else, that's my guess as to what this guy's ability does to us. It reverses the matchups. So Guard will beat Crash, Crash will beat Strike, and Strike will beat Guard. So Guard, if we're wrong then we'll have more data on his ability and Chief's Embrace allows us an extra fuck up along the line.
>>30473662It's fine. You're writing more.
>>30473582Guard with Domination Howl.This is the last thread of the arc anyway. Let's use it.
Looks like you want to Guard>Writing
>>30473698Oh yeah that's true. USE THE HOWL
>>30473582You may as well have rolled for it, in that case.
>>30473698Good point.>>30473582Guard + Domination Howl.
>>30473739I'm kind of uncomfortable with using the howl for this, because what if *that* gets reversed?
>>30473732oh man, well maybe next move could use howl.
Guess I'll use the Howl too. Never know how long to wait for these combat choices.
>>30473754That was my worry as well. I don't want to use it when we have no idea how it well interact.
>>30473782No worries. Sometimes someone just squeaks a timely argument in at the end.
>>30473802only one way to find out anyway.
>>30473754Hmm, chief can still talk normally, so we should be fine.
>>30473859Really don't think that is a good metric.
>>30473883Maybe, but it's all we've got to go on.
>Domination Howl SuccessfulYou don't know how to move your body yet, but you're just not going to throw in the towel yet. You dig deep within yourself, gathering up all the resentment, frustration, and rage you've built up these past five days. All of this...no, everything is this punk's fault! He's the reason you got electrocuted! He's the reason you got impaled! He's the reason you had to sit in a tight, stuffy box with Claire! He's the reason you had to set up chairs! He's the reason why you're not taking a nap!Your rage reaches its peak and you let loose a howl. The sound almost bursts your own eardrums, but you don't care. All you want is to let this idiot know that he's ruined your week, and you intend to ruin his life for it. The boy stops cold, dropping his payload of debris prematurely. He hits the ground and scrambles back as you approach. The colors of the world return to normal, his concentration apparently broken by fear."I...I won't let you take me! Time and space are mine, you won't even touch me!"A black sphere appears around him and the air contracts. With that, he vanishes. You spin around looking for him, and see him appear behind the Chief. He raises a hand, warping the air around it as he readies some kind of haymaker blow. Before you can call out to the Chief to warn her, she's already at his back...no, wait...She was behind him all along! The Chief sitting on the ground bursts into a bloody mist as the true Chief bites down on the terrorist's neck. She only drains him for a moment before the dark light swallows him up again and he reappears many yards away.Damn! You'll never catch him at this rate."Offering support."A storm of gunfire and light falls down upon the boy-terrorist, pinning him in place. Claire jumps out of the frozen crowd and helps the Chief gain her footing."I'm here, Captain. Make use of me however you will."
>>30474004Right now, you need to stop this guy. He flashes back and forth, delivering blows to your blind spot before contracting space and vanishing again. Even Claire is having problems keeping her eyes on him, and the Chief has once more slipped into her bloody sea of mist. Before you know what's happened, he's reappeared behind Claire, ready to strike again.>Strike>Crash>Guard[Claire has returned, and with her, a new skill!Battle Instinct: Claire's tactical foresight mixes with your own killer instinct to predict the enemy's moves. Declare as part of any move. On the following turn, you are made aware of the enemy's true move, as well as any Renegade Powers they are using. Only usable once per scenario]
>>30474004>He's the reason why you're not taking a nap!Damn right, Cap.
>>30474034>GuardJump to Claire and GUARD.
>>30474034>Guard, with Claire's power.It's the final battle of the arc, unless there's a secret boss fight or something. Might as well go all out.
>>30474034>GuardUse Battle Instinct this turn to have the next turn ready.
>>30474034I don't even know what he's doing.It looks like evasive maneuvers, so maybe he's Guard.But it's also fast and he's about to hit Claire, so it looks like Strike.Unless that was all charging up an attack and he's really Crash attacking.Meh. Fuck it.>Guard>Battle Instinct
>>30474127The secret boss is Lavos.
>>30474034Hmm, this feels more like a Guard than a Strike to me, sure it's fast and accurate but attacking and vanishing feels like more like a delaying tactic.So Crash.
>>30474138Pretty sure it's a strike. Certainly doesn't look like a crash since he's expending a lot of energy instead of charging up.
>>30474034"...ready to strike again." Claire's skill? If so, it doesn't count as our one use I assume.
>>30474166If it's a strike or guard and we guard then we get a point of damage no matter what. Even if it is a guard and we take a point, we have the Chief to heal us.If it's a strike or guard and we crash, we either do no damage or one damage.Guarding is better.
>>30474203True, and if we use Claire's power then we have a pretty much guaranteed 3rd hit which should finish this kid off. It's his fault we have to actually work, what a jerk.
So, Guard + Battle Instinct, yes?>writing
>>30474139OP, would you mind detailing the combat system in the setting resource document? I never seem to remember the defining features of guards and strikes...
>>30474228I will. It's one of the things I got lazy about this week, but I really promise I will this time.
>>30474166It feels pretty guardy to me too, but I voted guard anyway. If it is a guard, I wonder what a successful crash against it would look like. He's already right behind Claire, so we don't have time for anything big and slow before his hit lands. Perhaps Claire would counter and hold him in place.
>>30474139T-twelve thousand BC Lavos, or 1999 Lavos?
>>30474254Maybe a successful crash would be grabbing him and hammerthrowing him into a wall or something. Or spinning and then jumping into the air to throw him at the ground.
>>30474034You've got to protect Claire...even if you really don't want to.You tear up the ground as you run forward, kicking up big chunks of dirt and grass behind you. Claire looks at you strangely, her eyes momentarily widening before she simply nods and lets her body go limp. You tackle her and push her to the ground, covering her body with your back. You don't imagine this guy can really hit that hard but..You feel your spine shatter. Alright, so you were wrong about this guy hitting hard. His fist felt like it weighed a thousand kilograms. Just what in the hell--You almost black out from a kick to the face. Damn, you're having trouble even thinking straight. Out of sheer stubbornness, you clamp your teeth down on the leg that just caved in your face. You glance down at Claire, who raises her pistols up, aligning them with either side of your head. Bells ring in your ears as she pulls the triggers, sending round after round into the boy. He's thrown backward, as if there was no weight to him at all...is that how he was so fast? The colors of the world begin to shift again, and you can feel the boy summoning up more power.Never mind that, you've got to go finish him. You turn to Claire, you can already tell what she's thinking. She motions with her eyes over to the target. He's going to go all out with speed in this last attack, using his powers to confuse you. That's his only option left. That's right...he's so simple-minded. Why couldn't you figure him out before? You give an affirmative nod to Claire and decide to take the initiative for once. You already know what he's going to do, so that means you need to...>Strike>Crash>GuardBATTLE INSTINCT READING: The enemy is using the special skill "MAD WORLD", which reverses the normal match ups. His next attack will be a Strike.
>>30474401Might as well start writing the next update.>Crash!
>>30474401So Crash him?
>>30474401HAHA TIME FOR A CRASH FINISH
>>30474401>CrashHA HA TIME FOR MURDER
>>30474401I thought Guard beats Strike, Strike beats Crash, Crash beats Guard.>Guard
>>30474401What kind of attack was that, anyway?
>>30474445>The enemy is using the special skill "MAD WORLD", which reverses the normal match ups.
>>30474401>CrashCan Captain pull a piledriver?
>>30474445FUCK NEVER MIND>>30474401>Crash
>>30474401CRASH! >>30474445MAD WORLD reverses the normal matchups.
>>30474446I'm guessing we tied with that Guard.
>>30474446The enemy's attack? It was a Guard. He was running away, collapsing space with gravity control to continually teleport and get in a cheap shot.
>>30474485So, we'd have caught him with a reversed Strike...darn.
>>30474427Ha ha. Well, you could always pick wrong if you wanted.But yeah>writing.
>>30474503I don't think Mad World was active for that round.
>>30474401The boy once more seizes control of reality, shifting everything to its polar opposite. But...you're ready now. You won't be fooled by his little trick. You just have to think in reverse. Beginning with your finishing blow, your mind works backwards, going through the necessary steps to win. You've already seen it in your thoughts, now you just have to do it. Like a shadow, Claire moves along with you, copying your movements with eerie precision. You calmly walk to the boy, raising your clawed fist. Your arms bulge with muscle, and your breathing becomes calm and smooth. Beside you, Claire cocks her weapon, ejecting an unspent case. She holds the round in her hands until it shines brightly with a rose-colored light. Without taking her eyes off the target, she replaces the round into the magazine and loads it into the chamber."You UGN dogs! I won't--"He won't anything. Claire's shining bullet slams into his chest, and your fist follows shortly after. The boy is sent hurtling into the distance, slamming into the large, bright lights over the soccer field. You can swear you hear the crackling of electricity, but that must be your imagination. They wouldn't be on this early in the day would they?
>>30474652In a few moments, the boy's hold over time fades and the world returns to its normal hues and speed. You suppose you can count this as one more victory, can't you? Claire jumps on you, hanging off your neck."You were so dashing when you saved me, Captain. Now, please, take me to the storage shed so that I can give you your just reward. I'm more than ready, so you don't even need to bother with any warm-ups." Claire leans in, aiming for your face, but you push her off. You've had quite enough of that. "Yes, well, Wild Card, impressive showing as always. I must admit, you do have the knack for combat," the Chief says as she approaches, dusting off her clothes. She eyes you and Claire for a moment before crossing her arms, "Unlike Claire, I can't really reward someone who isn't part of our organization. So congratulations is all you'll get from me. Be grateful!"You'll be grateful when you can go home...[Small break for nicotine and the bathroom. Hope that was a good combat for you guys]
>>30474666>So congratulations is all you'll get from me. Be grateful!"Bitch. I hope Diablos breaks out and stabs you first.
>>30474666Yeah! We beat up a child, fuck that kid. It was an enjoyable fight, I liked Mad World.
Do you guys think that there's anything we can compliment Claire on that she won't take as us returning her affection?Like her combat skills, for instance?
>>30474688>Doesn't appreciate a jealous, frustrated icequeen.
>>30474688Aww, you don't like the Chief's charms?Anyway, back and>writingI like watching you guys chat.
>>30474783Ignore him, the vampire queen is clearly best girl. I just prefer to to engage in discourse with savages.
>>30474783I like the Chief's charms, she's amusing.Though I might like Claire the most, sure she's a bit loony, but she's a remarkably nice person, she even tried to wingman for Rin, she's a good cook, and I like her interactions with the Captain.
Chief is best. Lunatic close second.threesome when
>>30474708And just to be clear, every inch given will be stretched a mile. We go home and give in to sleep or hunger, whichever is stronger.Plus that tackle-guard had to have been, like 5-10 headpats. She's got to be just chuffed.
>>30474666You have a seat on one of the folding chairs, watching Shining Void minister appropriate mind-altering substances to the crowd. Although they didn't witness any of the fight and there were no casualties or serious injuries, the recently destroyed athletic fields need to have some kind of explanation. Void seems to have decided on an errant mini twister ripping through the field, and is in the process of blanking people's minds and filling it with suggestions. The Chief has told you a more permanent solution is coming in from out of town, so you figure that this will wrap up cleanly.Your stomach grumbles. That's another fight this week and even more hunger clawing at your mind. You could eat anything right now, but you're too stubborn to admit it. Claire is normally already shoving food down your throat, but she appears to be helping direct the crowd to their routine memory bleaching. The meet will resume as normal after this gets cleared up, so you suppose you could stick around for the Finale if you wanted, or maybe just take this opportunity to head home and catch some early sleep. Either way, you consider this case to be closed, and resolve yourself to never become a private investigator in the future. Far too much legwork. Far too much talking. Far too much everything.>Stick around for the show. It's not like you have plans.>Go feed yourself before you go crazy.>Screw this, you're going home.
>>30474866>Go feed yourself before you go crazy.
>>30474866>Go feed yourself before you go crazy.Fuck it, hunger wins. Follow our bestial desires.
>>30474866>>Go feed yourself before you go crazy.Fooooooood
>>30474866>Drag Chief off to find food.>Ask her what happened to those missing students.
We could also go fishing.
>>30475006Too much work.
>>30474866It can't wait anymore. You absolutely have to eat something or you'll lose your mind out here.You get up and head over to the picnic tables to see what food is left after all that carnage. There were piles and piles of food there, enough to serve these thousands of people. There's got to be something good left, right? Wrong. All that's left are a few slices of bread and a lot of fruit punch. Everything else has been scattered across the lawn and mashed into a pulp. You feel your stomach growl at you. Well, even if it's been on the ground, it's not like you'll get sick from it, right? So what's the harm? You get down on the ground and begin to search for scraps large enough to eat. "How disgraceful."You look up to see the Chief with a plate of hot food in her hands. You sniff the air. Is that...steak? Where did she get steak!?"Does it matter where I got it? I was thinking that perhaps you earned a hot meal, but seeing you crawl around in the dirt like an animal...I'm not sure you deserve it, Wild Card."You practically jump off the ground and grab at the plate. The Chief pulls it away and sets it on the table. She sits opposite your side and puts some silverware down by the plate."Promise to eat like a human being, and then I'll let you have it."You're not really an animal. You were just hungry. Nevertheless, you do as you're told and sit down, cutting up the meat like you used to before this damn Renegade took over your life. The Chief silently stares at you, eyeing your neck and shoulder for a moment before speaking up."So, again, I'd like to tell you that you've done a great job. You've really outdone yourself as a simple volunteer. Are you truly certain that you don't want to join us? I could give you a higher rank than normal, given your efforts...">Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no.>Give in already. Turning her down so many times is too much work.
>>30475085>Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no.
>>30475085>Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no
>>30475085>Give in already. Turning her down so many times is too much work.
>>30475085>Give in already. Turning her down so many times is too much work.If we play our cards right we could end up doing even less work.
>>30475085>>Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no.
>>30475085>>30475085>>Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no.Fucking homo are trying to ruin this.
Samefags trying to ruin the quest please go away.
>writingStopping count now
>>30475085>Give in already. Turning her down so many times is too much work.On the condition that Claire does all the paperwork.
>>30475108Yep, seconding. I suspect these "volunteer" assignments are going to get less and less agreeable if we continue to refuse. The Captain has worked the system (maybe in his mind, anyway) his whole life, how could the UGN be any different from those dopes at school? (in reality the captain has no idea what he's in for)
>>30475136Stop taking things so personally, m8. No one is trying to ruin anything.
>>30475085>Give in already. Turning her down so many times is too much work.Come on. What could be the harm? We might even get Claire off our back.
>>30475085>>Refuse. No matter how many times she asks, no means no.You're really going to have to make a more compelling argument, Chief.
>>30475138>>30475139godfuckingdamnit piece of shit internet drops out right when I need to vote.
These are the votes I counted, so there can be no dispute.Refuse:>>30475097>>30475104>>30475118>>30475128>>30475129Accept:>>30475106>>30475108>>30475115>>30475130
>>30475155Yah, I chose the wrong time to go get a sandwich. In all fairness, Captains hunger stoked my own.
>>30475138I'm okay with whatever result, but that was a pretty short window for voting (~5 mins). I guess you're trying to deter samefagging, and that's laudable, but this seems like a pretty major decision. If it's not a major decision, then sorry for bitching and continue as before.
>>30475171Oh thank god. So close. Anti-mediocrefags trying to ruin shit.
>>30475171It's my fault for not being her to vote OP. I'm sorry.
>>30475171Man. With the next three votes, we would have had a tie.
>>30475175It's kinda big, but not so big that it would drastically change the dynamic. Think of it more of a choice to influence Chief's disposition.
>>30475171Despite not making the cutoff, I hope you still read my comment.because I do want Chief to try and get more... compelling
I'm glad no drastic choices were made while hungry.
>>30475171Thank you Based God for guiding us through these horrible, trying, waifufaggot times.
>>30475216You have no idea what you just did to yourselves
>>30475227We got eaten. Pretty obvious I think.
>>30475227Whatever it is, it's still better than joining the UGN.
>>30475227We just pissed off the Chief pretty badly, huh?
>>30475227I remember you saying that before.
>>30475227I hope the chief hates us. It'll help dispel the waifufags.
>>30475238We're the protagonist, either we join the good guys or we join the bad guys. There's no lazy middle ground for us to slack off in.
>>30475254You've clearly never read vampiric hatesex smut.
>>30475171so going into the next arc as neutral.eh.
>>30475227Joining the UGN at this point would be completely out of character.
>>30475260Then what have we been doing in the past few threads? All that work was done for the express purpose of slacking off once this whole thing was over.
>>30475227You only excite me further. I was fantasizing about chief getting her epee out for some regenerator heart-skewering after the last one.
>>30475254she'll do more than hate us, she's going to hurt us. >>30475260yep
>>30475287Yeah, but joining the UGN would result in us not being allowed to slack off EVER AGAIN.
>>30475260>There's no lazy middle ground for us to slack off in.You clearly weren't here for the the majority of this quest.
>>30475272i have a feeling some people will take it that captain is a member of a far superior secret organization and just makes him their target.
>>30475293Hopefully she bursts into tears and runs away crying. Might or might not make Captain feel like a total shit.
>>30475297what do you think lunatic high and shining void do all day?
>>30475274Not really. Joining on the condition that we never so much as see a sheet of paperwork would be in character. As is we just pissed away any free time we might have had as our class president will be shifting a substantial portion of her work load to us and docking all the extra hours Claire put in for us because she caught on to her scheme awhile ago.
>>30475305fuck and drink.
>>30475305Hmm, you have a compelling argument.
>>30475307>she caught on to her scheme awhile ago.What? When did that happen?
>>30475300Have you noticed how we've slowly been forced to do more and more work? Yeah, I'm totally off base there.
>>30475307We've denied 2 or 3 requests to join before this one. It would be out of character no matter how you rationalize it to yourself.
>>30475317Let's see, Chief knows how much we slack off. She reads Claire's reports, including how many hours of over time we're putting in. She call bullshit on us only sleeping 8 hours a day.Very simple.
>>30475331Did we take a nap instead of hunting around for little Mr. Teleported? Characters change, Captain is slowly realizing that you have to put some effort in if you want to reap time to slack off. And he actually gives a shit about civilian casualties now.
>>30475332That theory doesn't really hold considering that the Chief has been involved in several of the events that have occurred while the Captain was on overtime.
>>30475085No way in hell. Didn't the Chief straight up bite you and drink your blood today? Why would you want to work on someone who gets a sick thrill out of sucking blood? The Chief smacks her hand on the table and gets up. Even at her full height, she's not very imposing. She turns red in the face and opens up her mouth to shout at you, her fangs already bared."I don't want to hear that from someone who was crawling on the ground for scraps! Do you think I liked your blood? Do you think it tasted good? Well, it didn't! It didn't at all! In fact, I feel like I want to throw up just thinking about how I have you inside me!"The Chief flips your plate over, knocking the food across the table. She scowls at you, sticking out her tongue before marching off to rejoin the others, leaving you to eat the steak off the table. Hm. It's still pretty good. --
>>30475347>And he actually gives a shit about civilian casualties now.Does he?
>>30475347>Characters changeLittle things change. Basic fundamentals don't. Captain is the leader of the Go Home Club. Changing is against his very nature.>And he actually gives a shit about civilian casualties now.lol
>>30475355Several weeks later, you open your front door to find the Chief staring back at you, still wearing the same scowl she had on that day. Behind her are scores of her servants, each carrying several bags and a few holding up rather large pieces of furniture. Just what is she getting at here?"Step aside, Wild Card."It's less of a question and more of a greeting, Chief shoves you out of the way, letting her parade of servants rush into your home. They immediately get to work rearranging your furniture and putting up the Chief's own in their place. While it's not your style, you have to admit--they're pretty good at this interior decoration thing. But that's less important. What's important is what the hell the Chief is doing here?"I'm moving in. A powerful Overed like yourself requires more supervision than just Bullets can offer alone. The threat of that last attack made the UGN council realize that our Island needs more branches. They've since established two branches on the outskirts of New Zanzibar and have allocated new Overed from overseas to staff it. Simply put, I don't have to do all the work anymore, so I can give you my full attention."She what?"Yes. Since you utterly refuse to join us, I feel I simply must keep a close eye on you. From here on, your house is my headquarters. Claire will be my assistant on your case. She has *so* much experience with you, after all."
>>30475351>Chief has been involved in all the events where Captain worked over time, therefore she won't be suspicious about him working overtime without her involvement!Pretty sure I don't follow.
>>30475364Wait, Claire's what?! But..but what about your parents? They can't be okay with something like this!"Your parents? ...Ah, yes, don't worry. Extra welfare has been allocated to take care of all of these arrangements. Now, now, come show me which room will be for Claire and I. There's two of us, so we need plenty of space. Let's not forget the desk and the armoire and..."You put a hand to your head. You're already losing your mind. You sit down and try to think. As you attempt to process this situation, someone hands you a cold drink. Without thinking, you drink it down and look up. There stands Claire, in all her glory. She leans over and looks you dead in the eyes, her face slightly flushed with excitement."I'll be in your care from now on, Captain."Please. Please, no.[THREAD END.]
>>30475364Look where your refusal has gotten us, jackasses.
>>30475364What the fuck is even happening anymore
>>30475364We need to go vagrant.
>>30475364what glorious irony. waifu haters vote not to join the UGN, now the chief (and probably claire by default) move in with us.
>>30475378We're going full anime.
>>30475375I take it back. We made the right choice guys, sorry I ever doubted you!
>>30475364Time to go rogue. Or join False Hearts.
>>30475387Does that mean Rin is moving in as well?
I almost voted to join, but instead I just closed the reply box and watched without voting.I'm so glad that I got cornpops instead.
>>30475381>waifu hatersI'm pretty sure most of those people just wanted to keep up Captain's character.I don't really mind this. DXR probably planned to pull something similar either way.
>>30475387Wait, if Chief moved in does that mean Ghost Girl Zombie did too?
>>30475391You idiot. False Hearts won't let us slack off ever.
>>30475406>>30475394Tune in next time to find out. All I can say is this: Captain's house is far too large for one person.
>>30475378We just went full Anime. This is only the beginning, the Chief will add rooms and maybe even entire floors to the house while we're at school. More people will move in one by one, there will be shenanigans galore.
>>30475368During the investigation the Chief has been involved in both the aftermath of the Diablos fight and the results of investigating the ghost. Each of these two events occurred when we we're doing volunteer work as we have no actual obligation to help the UGN.Basically what I'm getting at is that the Chief doesn't have a reason to doubt that the Captain is actually working as she has seen the results firsthand.
What's everyone mad about? This doesn't really change nothing. We just continue to sleep, play video games, abuse Claire and tell the Chief to find someone else to do her dirty work.
>>30475387EEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!thanks for running!
Can we start a business as a hotel owner?
>>30475375>>30475376>>30475381I am entirely pleased with this turn of events.And it's like some of you guys have no player/character disconnect. I play Captain as wanting nothing to do with these shenanigans, but I enjoy nothing more than him having to deal with them. That is the point.
>>30475423The problem is that Claire now has access to the Catpain at all hours of the day.
>>30475423no one is really mad, just acting in char.also some should archive.
>>30475433>inb4 the Chief buys our house and makes us pay rent to live there
>>30475443we should get ALL the locks for captains room.
>>30475444Someone already did.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30470454/
>>30475423I ain't even mad, I find it hilarious. I'll continue voting for having nothing to do with UGN or it's bullshit.
>>30475420DXR, I may have lost all faith in /tg/, but I will never lose faith in you. Well played and well done! See you next thread.
So, I hope you enjoyed the thread guys. Feel free to chat or leave some questions or comments or critiques. I'll probably check back here later and see if I can't answer any.
>>30475433Can we install a hot spring/open air bathing complex in the back yard?
>>30475479what happened to the sadist loli? still in the silent room?
Guys we may have a problem. The Chief will no doubt bring along her blood servants those creepy never blinking never sleeping servants.
>>30475458Remember how Claire cracked that one guy's safe? Or Chief turning into a blood mist? Yeah, locks'll do jack shit.
>>30475458She can defeat mechanical locks easily via morpheus keys and angel halo x-ray safe-cracking style. She can easily spy the passcode for an electronic keypad... The best would be a biometric, but she can fool an eye scanner, via angel halo, and if she took a close enough look I bet she could morpheus a copy of our fingerprint as well, and that's only if she didn't want to collect a thumbprint the old fashion way.Claire WILL stand creepily by your bedside. There's escape.
>>30475493well good thing captain has attained the highest level of NOT GIVING A FUCK.unless those guys touch him.
>>30475493She already did:>Behind her are scores of her servants, each carrying several bags and a few holding up rather large pieces of furniture. Just what is she getting at here?
>>30475510*there is no escape
>>30475510Make a lock that only opens through scanning the Captain's fur. She'll never break that.
>>30475492She goes in the basement.
>>30475510Know what we need? A 200lb doorstop.
>>30475375Didn't she already try moving in with us once? She knows we'll just ignore her.
>>30475479I'm kinda curious on what captains blood really taste like, it's okay if you won't answer if it's plot related.>>30475509>>30475510welp, okay nvm.
>>30475557>Do you think I liked your blood? Do you think it tasted good? Well, it didn't! It didn't at all! In fact, I feel like I want to throw up just thinking about how I have you inside me!She thinks we taste great and likes having us inside her.
What are the odds that these new Overeds are more sane than the current ones?
>>30475570The crawling on the ground was undignified though.
>>30475570>>30475589The proper response was"Well, I'd prefer if my favored meal would stand on two legs as well, but I think I'd get in a lot more trouble if /I/ started biting people."
>>30475610don't think the capt. can pull that sentence off.
>>30475441You're right, I'm sorry. >>30475381 is me. I got a little flustered after the accusations of samefagging and this guy: >>30475216After giving the matter some thought refusal was the only way to go. I'll go to bed now.
What if we share a room with the ghost? That would effectively scare away Claire.
Why is the chief so tsundere?
>>30475646good night man.but i did hear someone from qtg doing things so you could be right too.
>>30475665i don't think the ghost can leave that room, that's the whole point of haunting.
>>30475667Because she's used to being in a position of superiority and Cap doesn't respect her.
>>30475667>>30475688And she wants his tasty blood but he refuses to give it to her willingly.
>>30475686She already did. Her code name is Dead Maid. Just last thread, she was with the Chief, serving us tea.
>>30475707she can ask Claire to bring some now though.or order some kind of robotic mosquitoes.i really doubt she will do any of those because of her pride.
>>30475686She's totally serving Chief's tea now. We specifically called it in and got her moved. She is best roommate too: unobtrusive, quiet, comes with refreshments...I hope she doesn't have some hidden surprise. I like her as silent, creepy, undead yamato nadeshiko so moe
While I absolutely love how this turned out, it was kind of a dick move calling the vote like that, DXR. A bunch of legitimate votes got discarded, while any samefag votes before the cutoff were counted.If you're going to do anti-samefag votes in the future, do them properly.Also, fuck Cloudflare. Their Sydney server has been down for the past hour, meaning anyone in Australia (like me) has been unable to post.
>>30475492I'll give that proper discussion next time. She is not forgotten.
>>30475770i only got to vote once on the start of the thread because of that.
>>30475801WHAT ABOUT THE MISSING STUDENTS?
>>30475827If it happens again, leave a comment on the twitter or something to let me know. I'll see about accommodating you
>>30475834The workers that the sergeant used which nobody could track down afterward? Those were blood dolls from Diablos.
>>30475835You could just watch the thread on Foolz, you can ghost-post there.
>>30475846Man, I usually never mention this kind of thing, but that just sounds like asking for samefagging.
>>30475842I thought they were legit students?>>30475869Well obviously you don't count votes on foolz with the same merit as those here. Just watch out for 'fucking cloudflare' posts and assume people are trying to vote but can't.
>>30475835that is sweet of you, but I'm not particularly mad about not voting, it's just the feel of cliffhangers between your posts.
>>30475892No, I should have made it more clear when I brought it up. When they said they couldn't find the workers, they meant that they had no idea who he hired, so they couldn't really question anybody.
>>30475756I bet she will turn out to be a voyeur and will watch Captain as he faps.
>>30475902Okay then.>>30475917>implying she won't possess Captain's body>and ravish Claire, Chief, and Lunatic>at the same time
>>30475917and then, to our horror, captain find out she can physically materialize if she is turned on enough.
>>30475947She's already physical. She's like a sentient, animated corpse. Perhaps preserved by the Renegade.
>>30476163Or, I suppose, she could be an intangible image that supernaturally evokes the smell of earth and moves things only in such a way as to create the illusion of physicality. I'd assume the former first though.
Shame I missed the thread but I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway. In character, I feel the Captain made the right choice in not joining the UGN, he is doing his damnedest to avoid these psychos and joining would only force him into more shit. Unfortunately, it backfired spectacularly.Out of character, I'm glad he didn't as I enjoy how the Captain is unlike standard protagonists as he wants nothing to do with these people and it would be a shame if that changed. Plus, giving the Chief and Claire (and others?) the ability to move in and further harass Captain is Hilarious.
