He died quietly, and quickly, his eyes offering only the briefest moment of uncomprehending, desperate terror. In death, however, he remains as much of a problem as he was in life, his steadily cooling remains quickly starting to stink up the chamber.In the room next door, you count six heavy pairs of footsteps making their way into the apartment, their arrival heralded by a chorus of cooing and fluttering from the girls. The friends he mentioned, most likely. If they’re in the same line as work he was, they’re certain to be similarly armed. You step lightly across the room, checking the sad, obligatory little window. It overlooks the courtyard in the centre of the block, a distant sheet of unadorned, ugly grey concrete. The drop is a sheer one, with few opportunities for purchase. You could survive the fall, but the information you gleaned from your target most likely has an expiration date attached, and waiting for your limbs to reassert their proper shapes could waste valuable time. Outside, you hear someone inquire after a Donny. The drawn-out, throaty voice of your target’s companion asserts that he’s next door, “catching a little alone time with one of the girls”. You suppose it may be possible to linger a moment, or to concoct some clever lie on your way out through the festivities, but neither option is without risk. If you wait, you increase the window in which your situation could be stumbled in upon. If you leave now, you compromise your cover.>[ ] Risk the jump. >[ ] Risk waiting a while. >[ ] Risk leaving through the front door.

>>30735027>Risk waiting a whileWe can prop him up to look like he's sleeping, leave in a couple minutes, and convince the people outside that he fell asleep.
>[X] Risk leaving through the front door.You shrug your jacket down your shoulders, undo your belt, and mangle your hair this way and that. And then you swing the door open, striding out into the crowded apartment.You feel every eye in the room turn upon you as you shut the door, a few slurred conversations slowly to a halt. You make your way across the heavily stained carpet in silence, keeping your eyes lowered, and almost make it to the door before one of the girls chimes in after you: “Hey, uh, where you goin’?” You glance back dismissively.“He was very quick.” Someone, somewhere, claps a hand over their mouth and winces empathically. One of the men further into the apartment, his hands all over one of the girls, can’t help but descend into a short-lived burst of laughter. “I am getting some air.” You step out into the corridor and make your way toward the stairs. It doesn’t take long for one of the men to follow you out, and you prepare to unsheathe, but he just matches your pace, staring looking you up and down and grinning lopsidedly. He seems younger than most of the others, skinnier. The squawking tone hiding under the crust of his voice confirms it.“Hey, girl, you up for another round when you get back?” >[ ] Yes. [lie]>[ ] No, go away.>[ ] Knock him the fuck out.
You guys didn't really think this through, did you?You were concerned with "what if this guy goes to the Black Cat while we're working there and... something bad happens" and not "how are we going to get out of here after killing him".
>>30735403>[ ] No, go away.I ain't up for killing this kid, tell him we have to go back and see our pimp or something

>>30735403>[ ] Knock him the fuck out.He probably wont take no for an answer and we on't want to wast time

>>30735635Dont worry, i got the 20 on the lewd roll last thread, i can get a decent roll this thread>Captcha Successes easystsmhuehuehue
>>30735413>"what if this guy goes to the Black Cat while we're working there and... something bad happens"Come to think of it this was a stupid justification. He was practically black out drunk. The chances of him recognizing us was very small. All we needed to do was hit him in the head really hard. The combination of concussion and alcohol would have ensured our anonymity.There is a very vocal group of players that recently joined the quest five or six threads ago that want JJ and Laura to be murder hobos. That is why people voted to kill.
>[X] Yes. [lie]“Yes.” You say, keeping your eyes as far away as possible from his. “I’ll see you insi”– “Great!” His voice crackles excitedly. His eyes are straying all over you, but he’s at least trying to be somewhat subtle about it. “Mind if I walk you downstairs?” You would tell him no, but that doesn’t seem in-character, and you’re not entirely certain that this person is capable, at this exact moment, of taking any kind of hint, no matter how blunt. You remain ambiguously silent and bear with his presence. He talks all the way down the stairs, to the courtyard and long rows of garbage bins – mostly about his job, which has been recently attained, and small inconsequential nuggets regarding his life. He smells of fresh gunpowder, and sweat, and nerves.He slows his pace as you exit the building, clearly expecting you to stop and linger outside. Which, if course, is not an option. You can’t imagine you have more than five minutes before the bloody remains of your mark are discovered. >[ ] Tell him you feel sick and must leave.>[ ] Pretend to get a phone call.>[ ] Try to convince him that he has found his way into Bad Company.>[ ] Apply violence.
>>30735696>[ ] Apply violence.
>>30735635Why would we say yes. There is no justifiable reason.>[ ] Knock him the fuck out.and then go look for the source of the Jack.
>>30735696>>[ ] Apply violence.Yeah. But not too much if at all possible?
>>30735696>[ ] Apply violence.should have stayed in the building and waited asshole, now you get SNIKT.
>>30735696>[ ] Apply violence.Knock him out, we just need to get the fuck out
>>30735696>[x] Try to convince him that he has found his way into Bad Company.Poor kid. He reminds me a lot of John, which is why I'm not inclined to kill him.
>>30735733Too late old man. Too late.
>>30735696>>[ ] Apply violence.Shoulda stayed away, kid. Maybe your next life'll be luckier.
>>30735696I'm incredibly torn here.I think i'm going to abstain to hold back muh JJ whiteknighting.
>>30735757>>30735802He only said "apply violence" why do you think we are going to kill him? We're probably just gong to knock him out.
>>30735848Even if we're not JJ, that doesn't mean we have to go full murderhobo.
>>30735696>>[ ] tell him you forgot your smokes up stares ask him to get them for you then leave
>>30735858You wish. STAB DIS FOOL!!
>>30735693I'd have to agree with this. But, at least murder hobo is more in character with Laura than when they were pushing for it with JJ.
>>30735893Could you stop being gay
>>30735937Just because she's fine with killing people doesn't mean she doesn't know when it is or isn't inappropriate.And right now it was and is all kinds of inappropriate.
>>30735943could you take off your plate armor, sheath your sword and play X-23?
>>30735986Just because i'm not advocating for killing everybody like some edgelord doesn't mean i'm a white knight.It's just stupid, and unnecessary.
>[X] Apply violence.“So, like, are from arou”– Without warning, you slam his head against the wall. He slouches, eyes darting through the night, wild with shock and sudden pain, before you step in close and wrap your arm about his neck, cutting off just enough of his ventilation to black him out. He slumps down to his knees, then to the ground, and you check his pulse. Stable. Leaving him, you break into a run, putting a fair bit of distance between you and the entire stinking block before eventually trailing to a stop, assessing your findings.You know where Barracuda – and possibly Creeper – will be. You know that he’s making some kind of action against Mister Negative, and that he’s being motivated by some manner of mystery ingredient essential to the manufacture of Jack. And you know that there may be a third party involved, likely one of the other crime lords presently edging in on Creeper’s territory. Do you have any reason not to follow this up immediately.>[ ] Maybe you should call [insert] for help.>[ ] Maybe you should get some rest.>[ ] Nope, let’s go.
>>30736025>[ ] Nope, let’s go.
>>30736025>[ ] Nope, let’s go.Laura a hero
>>30736025>[x] Maybe you should get some rest.A quick meditation to regain focus. We can call the Hellions in the morning

Guys, there must be a reason why Barracuda was assembling a team to tackle this shit. I'd rather have some backup, and if we gotta go right now, it should be Peter Parker.
>>30736076and here I was trying to be subtle about it so I wouldn't hurt Crusty's feelings
>>30736073Metagam- Oh wait, she does know he's Spiderman doesn't she. Though....>Call Hellions
>>30736101Seconded. I like this plan.
>>30736106>>30736101>>30736087>>30736093>Using a gang that will just take the place of the current ones
>>30736025>>[ ] Maybe you should call [insert] for help.Let's call Logan. He knows his way around stabbing people for fun and profit.
>>30736145>Implying leaving Creeper in power is better than Julian, despite his cuntiness.
>>30736145And?there will always be a gang, just so long as its not one that peddles drugs that cause mutants to go bang.
>>30735937That's why I said "murder hobo" is more in character than with JJ. But lest be serious most of the people voting for "murder hobo" aren't doing it to be "in character" If they were than they wouldn't have been pushing for it when we were playing JJ. The fact that we are playing Laura now just gives them a convenient excuse.
>>30736194Meant to link to >>30735968
>>30736145They agreed to stop the Jack trade and not to get into mutant trafficking, I'm fine with upgrading the morality of the local criminal scene.
>>30736194I down see nothing wrong with a little bumping baddies.
>>30736149...we haven't met Logan.Don't take this the wrong way, because it isn't aimed at you alone - things like this have come up before, and with increasing frequency lately - but please read the archives before you join a quest. It's only common courtesy.
>>30736025If nothing else we should tell Peter and maybe the Hellions the info we gathered.
>>30736275How about you read the archives, and then write an essay on it.
>>30736087second on bothwe should also let peter know that we know he's spiderman, probably not on the phone or just a hint
>>30736149Read the archives.
>>30736312I'm afraid confronting him about it will cause a nervous breakdown.
>>30736347For the Players or Peter?
>[X] Maybe you should call the Hellions for help.If your information is accurate, the representatives of three major crime syndicates will be between you and your objective, in all likelihood armed to the teeth and ready for a fight. Judging the situation worthy of backup, you call the Hellions. The phone rings for a short while, before an unfamiliar, soft-spoken voice answers. “…Hello? Is this, um, Laura?” It often seems as though the same Hellion is incapable of answering your calls twice. This will be the fourth you’ve conversed with. “Yes.” “Oh, hi, I’m Cess”– “It is very nice to meet you.” You offer, with all the sincerity of a plank of wood. “I have information regarding Creeper.” You tell her what you know, and that you’ll be checking it out. You also ask her where exactly Cedar Woods is, saving you a little time. She seems a little skittish about the subject, far more so than her friends, but tells you that three of her fellows are available to assist you – Lance Alvers, the terrakinetic, Santo Vaccaro, the young man with the granite physiology, an herself.>Meet them there Y/N?
>>30736308well arent you a cunt
>>30736380More PeterHe's a gentle flower
>>30736391Y>>30736398That'd be fun to watch.
>>30736393ignore him anon, much more likely to be trolling then anything. >>30736391yes
>>30736347Bear in mind that this is Ultimate Peter.He is so shit at keeping his identity secret, half the superpowered community and some of his villains know who he is.
>>30736391Y>>30736433I swear, the QTG is the worst thing to ever happen to quests
>>30736458It has been the bane of allot of quests.Anyone who knows about a quest should just follow the twitter feed, much safer.
>>30736447Dont know why he doesnt just tony stark it at that point
>>30736391>Y>You offer, with all the sincerity of a plank of wood.Wood can be sincere?
>>30736391>NCould go either way, really, but... our interaction with the Hellions mostly consists of them being assholes in various flavours of arrogant, imbecilic or just plain dickish.Let them handle it.
>>30736458>I swear, the QTG is the worst thing to ever happen to questsI'm not going to say there weren't arguments before they showed up. But 95% of those were about upgrades. Now it's all about the edge masters trying to turn our little gang into the murder hobos from their last D&D game.
>>30736494Because then Gwen Stacy ends up being Carnage and he gets killed by the Green Goblin.
>Y“I will meet you nearby.” You state. “Do not engage until we have made contact.” “Um… how’re you gonna find us?” You tell her that her friend has a very distinctive scent before hanging up. The comment was in reference to Santo, but really, it could be either of them. On the few occasions you’ve met with the Hellions, Lance Alvers has demonstrated a truly impressive ability to wear the same clothes for several days in a row. It strikes you that this observation may be somewhat on the hypocritical side, but JJ appears like a bright spot in your memory, and notes that the Hellions aren’t homeless. Cedar Woods is a fair distance to the North, on the banks overlooking The Bronx. You hop onto the subway and get within two blocks, progressing the rest of the way on foot. The area shows all the hallmarks of old industry, huge, looming buildings wrought out of unforgiving materials. The smelting plant isn’t hard to find, its cooling towers sticking out above the lowish skyline like offending fingers. It’s a large building, separated roughly into three wings. You’re making assumptions based on what you can see from the outside, but it would seem like the western section of the building is admin and control, with the other two wings comprising the actual industrial complex.You sniff the air. No sign of the Hellions yet.>[ ] Wait.>[ ] Go in.
>>30736704>[ ] Wait.FOLLOW YOUR NOSE
>>30736704>[ ] Wait
>>30736704>[ ] Wait.
>>30736523So the hellions are basically just a group of super powered kids. They are not trained assassins or hardened criminals. If Santo Vaccaro sees Laura shank a bitch he's going to go "Holy shit you just killed a guy!" Then bail$20 says the "edge master" will completely ignore this fact. They are going to do everything in there power to go full murder machine in front of the hellions.
>Laura referring to John as JJWAIFU SULLIED FOREVER>[x] Wait.Check for in and out movement, try to determine which area has more henchmen.
>>30736781Get a load of this guy
>>30736781Don't feed the trolls ideas. They need to learn to come up with something worth half a glance or else they'll just continue doing the same boring shit.
>>30736878this, might as well be productive while we wait
>>30736878We need to get back together with that bitch who can throw up fireThat shit's mad sexy
>>30737009What would happen if John got back together with Victoria? I can't imagine Laura would be very happy about that.
>>30737055JJ and Laura are just friends doe.I remember Victoria calling us a little creepy freak too, so I doubt she wants to reignite old passions.
>>30737055Its a good thing were controlling JJ then
>>30737072Not anymore anon, it's Laura quest now. I miss JJ
>>30736781Don't be so sure on the 'not hardened'. I'm fairly sure a few of them at least are vaguely murder-y, and they are a criminal gang.They're certainly more sensitive to violence than Laura, but that's not a very high bar.>>30737055I doubt that'll happen. We control JJ. Most of the time.I suspect she'd be rather upset. And somewhat unsure as to why.Poor Laura. She's not emotionally savvy.
>[X] Wait.You bide your time, making long, deliberate circles around the wire fencing that surrounds the complex. At this range, you’re picking up very little beyond the ground-level ambience of New York, nasally speaking, and at a glance the entire plant seems to be inactive. You’d guess that it’s a relatively small team at work in there, though Barracuda’s men will likely arrive in force. It takes you just over an hour to locate the Hellions. They arrive on the southern side of the complex, just waltzing down one of the main roads.“…why we’re waiting, man, we should just rock this whole joint.” That’s Santo, the rock-man. His voice is a clash of churning stone, but his use of language betrays a younger age than others might assume. “I mean, what’re they gonna do to me? I’m like Double Batman, made of rock!” “Dude.” Alvers. “You’re not Batman. Batman is stealthy.” “And hot.” Notes the third, female figure. That one must be Cessily. You approach them silently, hoping that some of your appreciation for quite might rub off on them, and nod to each of them in turn. Santo suddenly goes quiet, exchanging glances with Alvers. Cessily, however, offers her hand, which you accept after a moment of consideration. Her skin is cool to the touch – unnaturally so. She’s wearing a long, heavy shawl, but the distinctive gleam of metal dances across what you can see of her cheeks, betraying some kind of organic silver epidermis. Interesting. The wind shifts. Blood and gunpowder wash over you, old oils and humid, meaty warmth trailing closely behind them. Another distinctive scent. Barracuda is somewhere nearby. >[ ] Try to get in before him.>[ ] Let the violence happen, take on the winners. >[ ] Sneak in once things kick off.

>>30737301...wha- no!Look. There's 3 groups.Group 1 - have the Jack core. I think it's Mr Negative and goons.Group 2 - after the Jack core. Barracuda, goons, possibly Creeper.Group 3 - after Barracuda/Creeper/possible destruction of Jack core. Us and the Hellions.Group 1 + 2 fight. Group 3 waits, then ambushes whichever of the other two groups wins. Simple.
>[X] Let the violence happen, take on the winners. “Barracuda has arrived.” You state. Alvers rubs his hands together and smirks broadly.“Alright, let’s get this show on the road.” A distinct sense of unease passes through the ground beneath you, the soil shifting ever so slightly. You shake your head and glance back at the huge complex, its low silhouette seeming almost like a slumped giant, sleeping for now, or dead, but still dreaming of fire and ash. “We wait.” Santo grumbles, his voice a small rockslide. “It would be advantageous to let both sides thin one another out.” You reason, ignoring the boy’s unspoken complaints.Slicing your way through the fence, you take up position a short way inside, nearby the western wing of the building. Soon enough the night is disturbed by short, staccato bursts of gunfire, the breeze thickening with the myriad scents of violence. >[ ] All four of you go in.>[ ] You go in, the Hellions follow when it gets noisy again.>[ ] [insert] goes in with you and [insert] follows.>[ ] The Hellions make a distraction.

>>30737690Not quite. In that, the Hellions intentionally attract attention and we... do something. Here, the Hellions are vaguely stealthy (by their standards) and we're not caught with them when they inevitably fuck it up.

>>30737538voting for >>30737646
>[X] All four of you go in.As the violence escalates and the short bursts of gunfire draw out into sharp, metallic screams, you make a mental note of what your senses are telling you. The fighting is localized in the midsection of the building, with a larger force – Barracuda and company, if your assumptions are correct – trying to push through to the other end. As is the case with most gunfights, things behind to wind down as the battle draws on, short lulls seeping in between the shooting. You would surmise that the last remaining defenders have fortified their positions on the eastern edge of the complex, and are in all likelihood calling in for backup. “It’s time.” You state. “There is a broad factory door midway through the complex. That will be our entrance.” Breaking away from the group, you fall into a run, the distance between you and your objective disappearing rapidly. The Hellions have no capability for quiet, so speed is your truest ally in his encounter.As you approach the heavy doors, you make out two men with rifles sneaking their way around the premises. They catch sight of you, and– “Alvers!” The ground erupts beneath them, hurling them high into the air. By the time they hit the ground you’re inside, the innards of the complex opening up before you. It would appear that this central block is – or, was – primarily supply and storage, multiple huge shelves lined against one side of the expanse. The walls are lined by metal walkways leading further into the plant. Something moves up above. You shift your weight, hurling yourself behind one of the massive steel shelves. Gunfire rattles through the building, and you sniff the air. Four men up on the walkways. Mixture of firearms, all fully automatic. >[ ] Deal with them yourself.>[ ] Let the Hellions take them out so you can move further in.

>[X] Let the Hellions take them out so you can move further in.You glance over your shoulder, watching Santo’s granite hide advance through a hail of gunfire, Alvers trailing in the safety of his shadow. The gigantic mutant hunkers down beside you, the notion that he is even attempting to take cover almost amusing you. “Hold this area.” You command. You’re assuming that Barracuda is at the forefront of his offensive, and you’re prefer that the Hellions cut him off from as much of his crew as possible. “You got it!” Shouts Alvers, his voice curling with effort. A tremor passes through the walls, shifting the men on the walkways above off balance – one of them is even thrown straight over the railings, several his head hitting the ground with a sickening, bloody crunch. You take the opportunity to hurl yourself up the shelves, swinging from one beam to the next, eventually gathering enough momentum to propel yourself onto one of the nearby walkways. Bullets arcing through the air behind you, you sprint toward one of the doorways on the far end of the complex, a few shots bushing at the back of your legs. Another minor earthquake announces another offensive by Alvers, and the gunfire lets up just long enough for you to slip away. You are met by a long, broad dark. No windows here, but you can feel that you’re still on a walkway high above ground, dark, vast shapes protruding from the gloom around you, gradually gaining definition. This must be the smelting plant proper, long inert, but still littered by the heavy machines of industry. You pad your way quietly along the walkway.>Reflex Check>DC16>+4 sensory bonus

>>30738486>20>wowYou smell him, his sweat flecked through the air, the blood on his hands tingling at your throat. You duck, the butt of his rifle sailing over you, and in the dark you comprehend a great, gold grin, the rest of the mountainous man seeming to billow around it like a great, black stormcloud, all humanity lost to the gloom. You can vaguely make out a set of night vision goggles, or something similar, resting atop his eyes, but you have little time to eke any more detail from the figure.With speed that seems to contradict his massive build, Barracuda shifts his weight around, letting the force of his swing carry him into a headbutt. You dance out of the way, feeling your way along the railings, and drop to your knees at the sound of rounds being chambered.A momentarily flash of gunfire lights up the expanse, cutting over your head. The black descends again. Barracuda flips his rifle back around. >[ ] Go offensive.>[ ] Go defensive.

>>30739088Gee, Satan, that's a pretty overrated request, don't ya think?
>>30739089A momentarily flash of gunfire lights up the expanse, cutting over your head. The black descends again. Barracuda flips his rifle back around. >step 1: Try and club her>step 2: Shoot until your out of amo>step 3: Try and club her againUnless it was Barracuda's minions shooting at us in which case disregard.
>[X] Go offensive.SNKIT. You close the distance, a snap of gunfire momentarily illuminating Barracuda’s swollen frame. Your claws slide effortlessly through the barrel of his rifle, rendering it useless. You were aiming to remove the greater portion of his hand with it, but the gangster seems to be wise to your intentions. “Damn, girl!” His rumbling, throaty laugh fills your ears, and for a moment you hesitate. It costs you. His fist slams into the side of your head, blood vessels bursting in your left eye, a sharp crack of swooning pain tunneling down through your ear. You think he may have very lightly cracked your skull, but you ignore it, pushing the pain down, managing it. A second jab passes over your shoulder, and you manage to get your claws into his bicep, coppery wetness spreading over your fist. Grunting like some kind of cornered animal, the huge man swings you about, keeping you off balance. Smart – you can’t capitalize with your other arm if it’s all over the place. He grabs hold of your wrist, preventing you from twisting your claws, and a huge, bulbous knee drives its way up into your stomach. The air rushes from your lungs, spittle flying from your teeth. The urge to vomit rises, stomach fluids welling up in your throat, but you press it down, releasing the pain as a snarl. “Yo, where yo’ little friend at, girl?” He doesn’t know. For some reason that’s vaguely comforting to you. You set your foot against the railings and push, giving yourself some extra leverage. The attempt is rewarded by the sensation of tendons snapping before your claws, but the victory is short-lived. He kicks savagely at you, sending you sprawling across the walkway. “Not here today, huh?” Pulling yourself up, you backtrack along the cold metal, waiting for an opening.>[ ] Try to bring the fight somewhere more open.>[ ] Jump onto one of the nearby machines.

>[X] Jump onto one of the nearby machines.“Gotta say, ‘fore we get this all done an’ ended, you are one hardcore lil’ lady.” Blood pours from the gash across his arm, but he barely seems to notice it. Every step you take he matches, slowly, steadily advancing on you, as if waiting for the right moment to pounce. “Still, ain’t much room here for all ‘dat jumpin’ an’ duckin’ shit you pulled on me before.” An accurate evaluation. Your sudden, staccato movements giving him little warning, you slice cleanly through the metal beneath your feet, the world lurching as the entire walkway keels downward. Letting your claws slide back under your skin, you sprint up the falling causeway, leaping over Barracuda as he slides down, laughing all the way. The whole frame jerks as he manages to find purchase somewhere below, and you just about manage to hurl yourself onto one of the neighboring machines before the drop becomes too steep to sustain your sprint.Whatever you grabbed sways awkwardly through the dark, metal links groaning up above. Your pull yourself up, and realize that you’ve managed to find purchase upon the edge of a smelting pot. “Nice!” Booms Barracuda. “Still, tho’…” >Reflex Check>DC15>+3 sensory modifier

>>30739706>modified 20>wow againSomething arcs through the dark, skittering along the curve of the pot beneath your feet, like a stray coin circling a drain. Probabilities flash through your brain, pathways firing through the dark, clicking thoughts into place. You draw in a deep breath, bending your knees. Grenade. You leap out into the shadowy basin of the plant. Doesn’t matter where you land – anywhere is better than being next to a grenade when it pops off. The explosion bursts through your ears, momentarily lighting up the cluttered vastness of the complex, and the air whistles with flying shrapnel. You feel it cut across your boots, a tiny shard burrowing into your ankle, before you slam stomach-first into a long, solid metal something, the air leaving your lungs in a single, painful heave. Biting back the searing complaints of your ankle, you feel desperately for the exact nature of your new perch, your hands tracing their way along thick, long-insert wires and broad sheets of solid steel. Feels like the framework to an electric furnace. Can't be more than a meter off the ground.>[ ] Try to find Barracuda as quickly as possible. >[ ] Hide and heal amongst the tangle of machinery.

In one of the early quests the player base reached an agreement that this quest would never be mentioned on qtg. People are talking about it right now. And I've seen it mentioned on qtg the last three times HMQ has run.Is it that the new people don't know about the unwritten rule or do they just not care.
>>30740388shit gets popular.get used to it
>>30740404Holy shit fuck you
>>30740404yes, but idiots need to realise that QTG is cancer to threads and kills them.
>>30740428I think that's their point
>>30740424That was unnecessary, Anon.
>[X] Hide and heal amongst the tangle of machinery. Biting your lip, you pull the shrapnel from your leg, suppressing a wince. Your foot won’t be in fighting condition for the next few seconds, but you appear to have escaped Barracuda’s field of vision for now, as evidenced by the lack of that booming, jovial tone. You can smell him out there, stalking through the machines, hunting. In a way, he is very much like you, a being composed of total, unmitigated violence. As you crouch there in the dark, sniffing this way and that, you almost feel like he wears it better than you, like despite your years of rigorous training and forced exactitude and constant, gruelling conditioning, Barracuda has mastered death in a way you could never understand. You slip away behind the gigantic metal frame, passing under its skeleton. Your limp is gradually improving, a reminder of the single greatest advantage you have here – you can outlast this creature. No matter how tough he is, no matter how strong or unfeasibly fast or how well he basks in the bloody horror of death, Barracuda is a human being. Something strikes you as you duck under one of the aged ribs of the machine. A low, effervescent crackle, just barely perceptible, just barely humming through the wires that trace their way along the beams that bind the structure together.That’s not right. Nothing here should have power.>[ ] Follow the electricity. >[ ] Focus on finding a fully concealed hiding spot.

>>30740424>>30740428Not every anon is going to know about the 'unwritten rule' or understand why it is bad to mention it in /qtg/.

>>30740553I followed PGQ from the beginning and I've followed this quest from the beginning. I 100% serious when I say that there are similarities. Back when PGQ was around 50 threads no one not even qtg talked all that much shit about it. But, as it got more and more popular the shit storms got worse and worse.If this quest keeps getting more and more popular the same thing will happen. Only fools ignore the past.

>>30740657Shieeeet, you're right, if there's electricity then there will likely be lights.We can blind this fucker.>>30740601Changing my vote to electricity.

>>30740757There's nothing we can do. More and more players will join. The thread will get shittier and shittier. Eventually Crusty will get tired of dealing with all the complaining and the Quest will die.

>>30740879Stop being a baby.The quest will go on, and Crusty is a great QM. He'll keep it together.
>>30740879Stop overreacting you big baby

>>30740879The more you talk about it the more i'm convinced you're trying to stir shit yourself.
>[X] Follow the electricity. Your curiosity gets the best of you. Whatever’s at the end of these wires could very well be the mystery substance that drew the attention of Mister Negative, and then the subsequent, far less gentle attention afforded by Creeper’s gang. Following the low, electrical hum, you trace the flow of power back into the bowels of the machine, where its frame closes in into a set of broad, arching metal beams, each one host to the a thick bundle of softly-crackling wires. They bunch together like the last scraps of muscle clinging to the bones of a dead thing, much of the protective rubber that once ensured the safety of the system worn away by time. In the centre, where all paths convene, something clings to the looming arches like a great, tumorous mass. You assumed that you were looking for some rare mineral or particulate, but this… this reminds you more of a living thing, of any number of vital organs, all patchworked together with no regard for form or function. It’s like looking at a cancer cell magnified a hundred thousand fold, drooping obscenely from its purchase up above, the power lines twisting unnaturally – but oddly organically, you can’t help but notice – to convene at the point it hangs from. A soft, Cherenkov-blue light gently waxes and wanes from the nexus point, drawing in and out like the monotonous progression of the tide. Like a heartbeat. You feel a strange, electrical urge swoon through the roots at the base of your brain, a part of you opening that you’ve never felt before, scintillating-expanding-flowing freely, as comfortable and loving as it is alien… >[INSERT ACTION]

>>30741658>Deadpool's t-rex arms...I thought deadpools healing factor was imperfect or something? Wolverine and Laura gotta be immune to cancer and shit because all that continuous regeneration and exposure to radiation would have made them cancer beasts years ago.
>>30741533https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Awc1ZJVxXhUcrusty himself said akira transformation scene, waaaaayyy back just when we got the healing factor
>>30741730ain't no cure for Liefled anon
Rolled 53>>30741730Deadpool's Healing Factor is retardedly strong. Like, Deadpool can get decapitated and if he or someone sticks his head back on, even after it was kicked around the room for a few minutes he'll be fine.It's just bonded to his cancer, which is why he keeps that fucked up appearance.
>>30741804Look at that rack.
>>30741730>deadpools healing factor was imperfectIt's a little of both. His healing factor is stronger than either wolverine or x-23 but for some reason skin cancer is the only thing he can't heal from. He's immune to other types of cancer.We technically don't know what universe Lady Dead pool is from. And, we've never actually seen Lady Dead Pools face. I suppose it could be Laura under there with normal skin.
>>30741730It is imperfect. It actually has negative effects.However, it's also much stronger.There is a line in the sand past which healing factors become bullshit.Logan is past that line.Laura is past that line.Wade has gone so far over the line he can't even see it anymore. He's now relaxing in some lovely tropical tundra regions.
Post incoming. Promise. It's just... a long one.
>>30741937>It's just... a long oneIDS HABBENING
>>30741910I think she had like perfect skin or something and she hated that for some raisin. Something to do with wanting to bang that other Deadpool.
>>30741937Rev up those crackbitches.
>>30741804It looks like he should have three titties and two stars on his chest, like, his shoulders and hips are facing fully forward. Unless his pecs have attained sentience and move on their own.

>(1/2-3)>[X] Kill the power.Warmth encloses you, like sun-dappled walks, like mothers’ arms, like Pinocchio. You feel something hot and wet under your eyes, and you realize, to some amazement, that there are tears perched upon your eyelids. The gentle thrum of the sagging mass tells you that you are perfect, you’re fine as you are, you should never change, never despair. Mother loves you. Loves you. Unconditionally.“Please forgive me.”Uncon-di-di-di- “Even as I – Even as – words, they seem – Even as I write the words, they ri-ri-ri-ri”–You clap your hands over your eyes and count under your breath, telling it to go away. Mother’s love fades back into the ebbing shadows, and you are left alone, the churning, whispering progression of the electricity your only company. You step back, glancing to and fro, and unsheathe your claws. You don’t know what this thing is, but it got into you. It got into more than your mind. Something deeper, safer, some refuge you didn’t know you had, and that you can no longer feel. Wincing as the current travels up your arm, you slice through one of the nearby bundles of wires, and then another, and another, until the flow of power to the thing is finally cut off. You breathe. You feel yourself orbiting your centre, seeping back in to your own, recognizable self.
Plot twist Wolverine is in there
>>30742297I think we just avoided tripping balls on JackCuda probably turned it on to lure us out
>(2/3)The glow pulses in the belly of the thing. You feel it shudder, shudder, again and again, its pace matching your heartbeat. The wires now trailing from the ceiling jerk up, swaying through the air like feelers, a soft, pale blue glow enveloping their lengths. The dark is suddenly alight with flowing, sinuous trails of neon fire. You make to move, but one of the wires caresses your cheek, and all the motion drains from your limbs, all worry, all hate, all. “Dayumn.” To your side, under the arching framework of the machinery, you see Barracuda advancing. He lifts his goggles and draws a knife from his belt, but the light washes over him, and all violence seeps away from his features, pooling at his feet, leaving him with only a strange, vacant stare.Under the skin of the great mass, the shadowy outline of something, something with four fingers and a thumb, traces its way across the pulsing membrane. Guided by the sinuous caress of the wires, each motion a tentative chance, a wish, you place your thumb upon its shadow opposite, and then a finger, and then another. The mass is warm to the touch, soft, welcoming. Familiar. “…Johnathan?”
>>30742355This is going to hurt.
>>30742355Mother of God
>(3/3)In a flash of barely-perceptible motion, it tears its way out, a lithe, strong arm ripping through the delicate membrane, sending a surge of luminous fluids rolling across the floor. It catches your arm at the joint and the sublimity ends, the wires losing their strange lustre, falling limply to the ground. You are vaguely aware of the mottled scales that smatter its hand, before you are much more pointedly conscious of your arm shattering in several places, bones splintering like porcelain by the pressure exerted. For the first time in… in a long time… you let out a shriek of pain. A head, sopping with dark, fluidlogged hair emerges, and then a Herculean, burnished torso. And then it looks up at you, eyes like tiny windows into the heart of a blue giant. It’s not JJ. It’s the other one. The scientist. “No, no, not me.” It smirks. “I am a Jo, though.”Joseph.

>(1/2)>[X] Tell Barracuda that he’s gotta help NOW or holy shit you’re both gonna die.>[X] STAB STAB STAB STAB.“Barracuda!” Your voice is unfamiliar. It’s full of panicked, unreasoning fear. The unconditional love and warmth that previously radiated from the mass is gone, and it left a deep, dark chasm, full of terrifying, incomprehensible certainties. You look into this creature’s eyes and you see fire on the horizon of the universe. “Hmmm?” Typhon glances absently in the other man’s direction, as if noticing him for the first time. “Oh. We have company.” “This creature will kill us!” You’re certain of it. You can feel your bones whisper it. “It will kill us both.” Barracuda rolls his brow in perplexed, thoroughly stranged-out silence. “Yo, big, floaty dawg, uh… I have no fuckin idea what this shit is, but you clearly ain’t s’posed to be here.” He stoops to pick up his knife, and Typhon smiles almost angelically. “Of course I am. Destiny brought me here. And judging by your scent – I can, wow, I can smell so many things now! – Jack brought you here. No?” For the first time in your relatively limited experience with him, Barracuda seems thoroughly unnerved.
>>30742859the thingy openedwe hoped it a jjbut it a Typhon, the bad guy and mad scientist in the Jekyl/Hyde vain but with X genesand he's going to fuck us up
>>30742897>even cuda is unnerved
>>30742773First of all even if John's never seen creeper wouldn't John recognize his own dads voice. Plus JJ's dad was a brilliant scientist. Creeper is a small time drug dealer. What series of events do you think happened to make him like that.However I am confident that Joyce is where the original Jack came from. JJ going super nova provided two new sources and now people are fighting over the new supply.
>>30742859>>30742739Typhon reaches out to Laura mind, bringing forth a comforting memory to lure her into a sense of serenity [so Laura leaves him alone? so he does what he did to JJ to Laura?]We start cutting off his power supply, and the feeling vanishes. His capsule womb thing opensWe are hoping It's JJ.SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKERS IT'S TYPHON
>(2/2)“Of course it did. This protein we’re swimming in here would make a fantastic base for it!” His voice trails off into a warbling, good-mannered laugh. “The people your employer stole the formula from got it from me, you know? Jack was my first attempt at a supersoldier serum. Not exactly a success, but certain a profitable mista”– You've heard enough. This is the monster. This is the that creature took Jonathan away. This thing was working with the Facility, with Kimura. You grit your teeth, snarling through bared canines, and stab at his chest with all your might. Your claws sink into his exposed flesh and he lets out a howl of pain. Like lightning, his second hand emerges, closing around your wrist, and you feel every bone in your hand fragment instantly. “Ow, hah! Ow, wow…” He grins ecstatically, marveling at the blades rooted in his flesh. “…I can’t believe I survived that. Haha!” With casual ease, he propels you off your feet. You hit the ground hard, sliding a good few meters. Slowly, laboriously, he digs his way out of the remains of the cocoon, stepping out into the fading bioluminescence. One of his arms reaches back into the mass, digging through sheets of tumorous, glowing flesh, and then, with a great heave, he pulls out a second, unconscious figure.Johnathan. He’s alive.“Hey, you don’t have the time, do you?” Typhon brushes back his hair and drops his hands to his hips.

>[X] Tell him to back away from JJ.“Back away from Johnathan.” You snarl, rising to your feet. Your hand hasn’t quite healed yet, but you’ve fought with encumbered limbs before, and for all his strength, this man-thing is not a fighter. He shoved you like a child picking a fight. “Oh?” He glances down at JJ’s prone figure, and then back at you. A shrug rolls across his broad shoulders. “Sure. Okay.” He steps away from the unconscious mutant, glancing down at his arms, his chest, and then further, grinning with utter delight. “I think it’s great that you care so much about him.” He notes. “Anyhow,” He crosses the distance between the two of you instantly. His hand is around your arm again, twisting it about, showing little to no regard for the snapping of your bones. He glances down at the watch on your wrist, and for a moment his expression creases into a frown, before giving way to a broad smile. “How apt.” You narrow your eyes, counting the seconds till your free arm is workable. Twelve, eleven, ten… and then you’ll cut his throat wide open. “What?” You’re stalling now. “What is it?” Eight seconds.His smile widens. Seven.“Ah, sorry. I forgot you’re a pod person.” He pauses, as if he’s tripped up somehow, and quickly adds: “Not that there’s anything wrong with that, by the way. Some of my best friends are clones. And it is a fine thing to be crafted toward a purpose. Anyhow…” Four.He twists your arm around, turning the face of your watch toward you.“One-thirty AM.

>>30743299Best part is. If we had voted for Enhanced Agility like I was hoping for earlier. Typhon would be a much more dangerous opponent right now. Choosing the less effective power actually helped us.

subdermal armor.sonic scream
>>30743659Agility 2 or bank.
Part of me thinks people only want to buy the new ones because they're new.
>>30743659Agility 2 and Bank
>>30743659>Subdermal Bioweaveand force eyes
>>30743659Agility 2, don't care about anything else.
>>30743813nah i think its to make sure their favored power gets picked.Honestly the only ones that everyone disagrees with is the utility and range.
>>30743813Guys, let's not buy every shiny new power we see and focus on making JJ less of a crack bitch. We have plenty of great powers, let's get them to a point JJ can be awesome as fuck instead of taking one level in every class.
>>30743824agility 2 would take both x points, there'd be nothing to bank....
>>30743659Wings and agility if possible
>>30743713without genetically raping us? I t hought Broseph was a gentleman
>>30743824Check you math.
>>30743895It isn't. Agility would take both points.
Remember how voting worksTier 2 seems to be more popular by a hairsbreadth. Remember how voting works.Okay then. Post, >1 to purchase a RANGED Tier 2 Power>2 to purchase a DEFENSE Tier 2 Power>3 to purchase a MOBILITY Tier 2 Power>4 to purchase a UTILITY Tier 3 PowerRemember, nothing but the number. Quoting this post or greentexting disregards your vote.
I honestly think agility would be the most usful power at this point. It's the only one that will let us fight one on one will Barracuda.>>30743895not possible.
>>30743882>>30743899Eh, Whatever. I can't even find Agility on here:http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrh
>>30743923>I have no idea which is which, what thread do i check?
>>30743938Your looking at the wrong thing.
>>30743923Now, guys, remember, you only have one RANGED, DEFENSE, and MOBILITY slot. Only one of each category of power can be bought, save for UTILITY, of which you can purchase two.Keep that in mind.
>>30743979Last one, or the one before.
Really if we get subdermal bioweave + wings we can have two large tough shields as arms.Since wing membrane counts as soft tissue.
>>30743865>to make sure their favored power gets pickedI think you're right. Agility upgrades can't be locked out and will always be an option. Who cares what power will be more useful they just don't want their power to be locked out in the future.
Voting closed.>>30744037Correct. On that note, if you have anything to ask in regard to these powers, now would be the time.
>>30744043that's what you guys said about phasing ;_;

>>30744068FFS it's a tie. Even factoring in the disregarded votes, it's a tie.Welp, time to random.Someone roll a D20. If it's 1-10, you guys get a RANGED power. If it's 11-20, you get a DEFENSE power.
>>30744145why not both?
>>30744145Actually, hold the phone on this.>>30744126This could be a good idea. So, who wants to spend both points, one on a RANGED power and one on a DEFENSE power?

>>30744200Defense, Bank the Spare. We need agility 2 more.
Okay, since everyone obviously wants Subdermal, that's that.JJ NOW BOASTS SUBDERMAL ARMOUR.As the idea seems popular, we will now vote on your RANGED Tier 2. Remember how voting works.Post, >1 for Optical Heat Blasts>2 for Optical Force Blasts>3 for Sonic Scream>4 for Draconic BreathRemember, nothing but the number. Greentexting or quoting will mean a disregarded post.
SUBSONIC TAGGINGRequires: Level 3 Sonic Scream, Level 5 Enhanced SensesCost: 1JJ can ‘tag’ anyone struck by his Sonic Scream by a subtle subsonic vibration perceptible only to him and precious few other pieces of advanced equipment. For some time afterward he will be able to track their exact position at great distances. SOUND DEPRIVATION/MAGNIFICATIONRequires: Level 2 Sonic ScreamCost: 1JJ can cause a persistent sonic variance to follow any target hit by his Sonic Scream. This can either mute them entirely, or greatly magnify any sounds they make. VIBRATIONAL FOCUSINGRequires: Level 3 Sonic Scream, Level 4 Enhanced Senses, Level 3 Enhanced AgilityCost: 2JJ may refine the normal kinetic force of his physical attacks into focused vibrational waves. These pulses can pass travel through materials to deliver the force of his attacks to a particular part of a system, rather than spreading it across said system’s surface area.FAR HOWLRequires: Level 2 Sonic Scream, Level 2 Animal AffinityCost: 1By combining the magnifying effects of his Sonic Scream with Animal Affinity’s ability to summon fauna at a distance, JJ may greatly extend the area of effect within which he can attract animals to his position.
>>30744200Since we can all agree on subderrmal armor and wings can we get those and put the shitstorm on hold
>>30744330We don't all agree on wings. Wings are stupid.
The other defense thing that secretes some sort of hardening crap, could also be used to buff our friends. I find that slightly more interesting than sub-dermal armor.
>>30744310I would rather just bank
>>30744310>5Bank the Fucking Spare.
SONIC VIBRATION FIELDRequires: Level 5 Winged Flight, Sonic scream levelCost: 1The edges of JJ’s wings may be encased in a subsonic vibration field at will, allowing them to slice through hardened materials with greater ease. SONIC FLUCTUATION MEMBRANERequires: Level 2 Winged Flight, Level 2 Sonic ScreamCost: 1JJ’s wings become capable of emitting precise vibrational pulses, fluctuating the air so as to achieve greater aerial mobility and allowing JJ to hover much like a helicopter or Harrier jet. GENTLE BEATINGRequires: Level 1 Winged Flight, Level 2 Sonic ScreamCost: 1The membranes of JJ’s wings may be calibrated to absorb sonic vibrations, allowing them to beat the air far more quietly. He will also displace less air and disturb less of his surroundings.
>>30744319...dude, be fair and balanced. Put up the other ranged extrapolates if you put one set up.
Can't wait till we run into someone with vibranium and our sonic scream becomes useless.

>>30744580They don't care. Because DRAGON!!!!!!!>>30744569Bank
>>30744569Keep it banked. Maybe all the retards will leave since their power didn't win and we can fucking buy something actually useful instead of another random Level 1 that we'll never use.

>>30744629>Fuck these guys, Sonic Scream!I never said anything against Sonic Scream.I just wanted Crusty to roll for it so we don't ahve to argue for the rest of the thread.>>30744630>Sonic Scream: Precise damage that can ignore armour.Sonic Scream.
>>30744644its the main reason i hate that i'm all for wings.Just because these guys want to go along with a theme.
>>30744630just do another vote, we're only on page 9
>>30744630I'll support Sonic if it's like Banshee's Sonic and we don't burst our ally's ears everytime we use it.
>>30744569they both suck the scream fucks with our super hearingand we are piss pants afraid of fire I could only understand getting this after we conquer our fear of fire not before especially since at this point JJ who in no dummy knows his powers develop based on what he wants. and there is no why he wants to be near fire fuck he doesn't even like the tiny camping stove.
>>30744644>They don't care. Because DRAGON!!!!!!!/tg/ - always dumb as bricks.
>>30744688>with our super hearingWhere does it say that?
>>30744580Now's a good opportunity to get over it
>>30744621>>30744617>>30744599>>30744596eat a bag of dicks
>>30744630Ignoring "we dragon" "afraid of fire" argumentsWe're stealth build. Precise damage that can ignore armor fits much better.
>>30744688We might be able to dick the scream into flight and passive/active sonar. Fire Breath just sets shit on fire and endangers our friends.Agility 2 is better then both.
>>30744703No where he is just doesn't want sonic scream.
Still think we should Vote or roll.The same event will just erupt every thread here after if not.
>>30744684You can modulate it. When it's focused in a blast, it fucks up the hearing of those that it hits, not everyone around you. And, of course, you're immune to its effects, for the same reason that you're immune to Draconic Breath but not to regular fire.Imma put up another vote momentarily. So then everyone can participate in voting on the two most popular powers.
Being afraid of your very breath can lead to some interesting dialogue and fits overall with JJ's theme of 'hidden, terrible nature'.Sonic Scream just doesn't feel 'JJ' to me. Sorry.
>>30744688True. Plus they aren't thinking about echolocation + eye beams that shoot around corners.
>>30744717we are afraid of a stove fire, do you really want to roll for being able to use this power?
>>30744742Remember to add in an option to Bank.
>>30744742Hey CJ, what happened to mutant babby we saved?
>>30744703there are dozens of powers and other things to reflect it back at us or in a condensed space like the subway we live in and every super hearing here gets extra fucked by sound blastsshit we don't even sing or yell like at all it just doesn't fit with jj well
>>30744630Between the two, sticking with draconic. We can already do precise damage - that's what our close-range offense (and potentially geointuitve) is for. What we're really lacking - what most of our allies are lacking - is an area effect.And that's without going into a diatribe on the respective thematic appropriateness.But, truth be told... I'd rather keep it banked for now. Until we can come to a relative consensus rather than a pissing match.
>>30744677I know what you mean. I want wing, but I don't care about being a Dragon. I'd rather have Sonic Scream.
>>30744754>hidden, terrible natureHah!
>>30744789>Hey CJ, what happened to mutant babby we saved?Chat and her detective agency found its parents.Thread #54
>>30744790ThisSonic scream is a fucking retarded power for JJ to have
>>30744817That just seems anticlimactic
OKAY.REMEMBER HOW VOTING WORKSPost, >1 for Sonic Scream>2 for Draconic Breath>3 to BankONLY THE NUMBER, NOTHING ELSE. GREENTEXT AND QUOTING MEANS DISREGARDED VOTES.
>stealth character>yelling powerkek
>>30744722Agility 2 is better then both.yes yes it isbut both suck super hard there note precise and neater work well with what we got now power wise
>>30744799I can go for this. optic blast will return en force!
>>30744742god dam just bank it
>>30744677If they wanted a theme they'd begging with the electrostatic force bans since those stack with our adhesive touch and taser hands. They're jumping to a new theme and abandoning the Electric Elf Lizard Messiah.
>>30744819Crusty said the only difference is accuracy vs area.We're stealth build. Precise damage that can ignore armor fits much better.
Every power has its limitations.I prefer fire just because we have no area effect yet, it can help with other bits, is thematic, and dosent require constant concentration to be useful.
>>30744754no it doesn't he doesn't think he is terrible his powers are cool as fuck he just hast to hid so not to be killed and fire is bad JJ hate fire
>People getting this mad over choices that have their own meritsJesus people, calm down
>>30744936Hes going to have to get over it eventually.Besides, hes immune to his own fire. Sounds like a brilliant way to get the fuck over it to me.
>>30744956we've been going to shit for like the last 10 threads
Page 10, boyos
>>30744754That sounds retarded.
>letting people use thier phones now
The real question. Who did we get this power from? Or are we going to ignore 50 threads of self imposed limits on what powers we get?
>>3074498510 for fire8 for sonic.Sorry lads. you lost.
Draconic breath winsPRAISE BE TO CRUSTY
>>30745007Yup just BECAUSE DRAGONS.
>>30745007firechick we sex'd?our powers emulate, without duplicating, people we've encountered.
>>30744921area effect means hitting allies the last thing JJ wants to do and he hates fire sure as fuck hates fire that is super easy to get out of control
>>30745007Chalk it up to Typhon fuckery
>>30745007What did we get either Eye beams from? Sonic scream? Dragons breath? WTF
>>30745013And now the dice will have nightly chances of causing JJ to further traumatized himself.
>>30745023PRAISE BE TO RETARD FUCKS WHO JUST WANT TO BE A DRAGON!
>>30745036Your presuming we would be stupid enough to aim it at freind's, and if thats the case even sonic is going to hurt.
>>30745030That's not the reason you whiny autismal fuck
My dick is rock hard right now
Man, not even phase bros were this sore.
>>30745074then what is it?
God I hate XP debates.
>>30744985Draconic takes it. 10 to 8 to 7
>mfw you guys chose the power that lets me force a Willpower check whenever I wantThis must be what QM heaven feels like.>>30745035Some time ago.
Congratulations John now gets to piss him own pants every time he gets into a fight
>>30745073Crusty just said it fucking won't.
>>30745086They'll get over it.Crusty's writting is worth it.
>>30745056The Lizard Messiah is dead. All hail the Dragon of the Apocalypse!
>>30745091Because it fits better than sonic scream, which has no relevancy to the thing we've been doing. Whatsoever.It's a strong power, and it lets us brute force over JJ's fear by practicing when we're alone.Jesus.
>>30745110>Incoming butthurtWere already halfway to getting past our fearShooting fire out of our face will help get rid of it
>>30745086I only got this mad when we chose claws as a power.
>>3074511050 plus threads and on 2 fire checksbout time
Watch me vote against EVERYTIME we try to use this fucking power.
>>30745110You already do that anyway, what with the warp spasm and all.Now we just get to incinerate our cloths more often.
>>30745110There have been a lot of debates about powers. But out of all of them I think this is by far the stupidest decision.
>>30745086The extremists on both sides are acting like asshats.
>>30745007yea its dumb as fuck>>30745052eye beam at least expand on our eyes ans are low key like most of JJ's mutations they blend in or are pretty well hidden fire out your mouth and loud screams are the opposite and total agents the JJ we have been building but dragon fuckers get what they want
>>30745110Meh, it's about time we get over our fear of fire.By the way, this means we stuck with the theme. We met Valeria again, and then picked up her power.
>>30745139How does it fit?
>>30745164Sounds like an analogy for religion.JJ is now our draconic messiah.
>>30745129See >>30745110. Now, think about how we roll in this quest.We are now almost guarenteed to burn several of our friends to death when panicked or having bad dreams.
>>30745110True.On the other hand, every time we use it counts as a phobia trial. Which means you may only get three chances to make us suffer... like that.
>>30745178then we are not getting wings then.
>>30745155Seconded I will literally never vote to use this power. I don't like it when the MC pisses himself.
>>30745073have you seen our rolls? plus its bright and loud our bread and butter power is invisibility these both kill that super hard
>>30745207Subdermal bioweave + wings = two great big personal shields.
>>30745086this was the most divisive power of tier 2, I wanted optic force blast but whatevergotdragon breathsubdermal my wish listwingsPhotosynthesis (lower food budget and sweet extrpolatives)Animal Affinity (animals being our eyes and ears in the streets? yes please and good combo extrapolatives with Photosyntheis)
>>30745007Valerie, or whatever her name was, could spew fire when she got punched in the gut. We met up with her and now we got her power.We've met nobody who can Sonic Screech, or any of that.
>>30745199>Which means you may only get three chances to make us suffer... like that.who siad three chances?
>>30745207I don't give a fuck about wings.You sonic scream fags need to stop grasping at straws just because you didn't win.
>>30745110Yep. We picked the one power we are almost guaranteed to never use intentionally.
>>30745155>>30745208>>30745207ladies and gentlemen, the cancer
>>30745199No it doesn't. Don't you remember recuing Laura from the fire. We rolled and it didn't count to the phobia trail. For all the people think this will help him get over his fear. It won't.
>>30745110You're just fanning the flames Crusty.
>>30745242guaranteed my ass.
>>307452385 trials to overcome our fear. We've passed two already.Check the character sheet on pastebin.
>>30745241It had the best extra mutations out of the ranged powers and yet people chose dragons.
All these Sonic scream bitch tearsDelicious
>>30745271>Thinking it won'tWe're shooting fire out of our fucking face.If that's not a challange to one's phobia of fire, I don't know what is.
>>30745288Well, it honestly depends on how bad our rolls are at that day.
It was kind of a big vote, that was gonna cause a shitstorm sooner or latter. I'm just glad we got done with it.
>>30745301meh, I liked optic force blast better and people are generally more interested in the standard powers than the extrapolative powers
>>30745262Not really, most of us are pointing out that JJ tries not to get other people caught up as collateral damage. We picked an AOE power that spreads like wildfire. In a densely urban area. Kind of hard not to set buildings on fire, you know? So yeah, can't be used unless we can be sure it will be contained.
>>30745288See >>30745271Not every phobia roll counts towards taking out the phobia or have you not been reading the quest. see >>30745271
>>30745323Exactly if we didnt do it now we would all be seething at eachother over the next couple threads
>>30745309Ergo, may.It's unlikely, with our luck, but it is possible.
>>30745262I'll make sure to leave a recommendation to QTG on the way out.
>>30745336Voting out of pure spite is fucking cancerous.when you're not playing for fun but to make other people miserable, you are hurting the thread.
>>30745288Didn't we fail a trial?
>>30745336>In a densely urban areaWe live in an area full of concrete and snow.I really doubt that we're going to burn the city down.
>>30745323Yeah, I was honestly dreading it a bit.Hopefully we'll be able to look back and laugh soon enough. Just like with the phasing thing.>>30745307I'm still considering how to implement that stuff. I think it'll basically add up into an effective Phobia Trial success eventually.
>>30745370>Hi.Hi. I'm >>30745078, but I'm not >>30745252. Hope this helps.
>>30742355I must say Crusty, today's thread was very interesting. I sort of feel bad that I had to sleep through most of it in order to actually function as productive member of society.
jesus this was a dumbass power choice. god damn it. when is jojo ever going to use a high lethality, high pain attack with no fucking utility anyways? we're a god damned boyscout
>>30745392>Just like with the phasing thing.Crusty, you're better than this. Stop taunting the poor phasebros.
>>30745392Remember, you promised me we could have phobia challenge fails that would undo our previous successes.
>>30745367It's not out of spite. I'm wont vote to use the power because area effect powers cause collateral damage and when John has a panic attack he won't be able to respond to what ever was causing him to use the power.
>>30745392You better let us fail these challenges.
>>30745441A boys out that sets building on fire.
Fucking mountains of salt
>>30745392>bCrh7ntIBUtWhen you planning to run again?
>>30745458>>30745484Look at the sonic scream fags scrambling to try and get the moral highground again.Just admit it, draconic breath was an okay option, and has its merits.I think sonic scream has its merits too, if you want to know.
>>30745412...But... but it wasn't a taunt...That stuff was so long ago now. Like, months and months ago.>>30745458>>30745484Yep, that can happen. You've been extraordinarily lucky with them so far. Like back at Sacred Tree. That thread had some golden rolls.
>>30745392should probably have the next thread after a couple of dayslet the angry anons chill off,
>>30745533If I can? Tomorrow/today.Though I guess a short cooldown period may be in order.
>>30745392What people who get miffed over powers fail to see to understand that there are no 'bad' powers. They are all upgrades and there are very few powers with almost no utility beyond what they do in combat. All powers are kind of cool in their own right. I personally didn't want electrostatic touch or claws, but I do not have any reason to hate them.
>>30745441The only boy scout I ever knew was also the biggest asshole I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I could totally see that douche setting houses on fire.
>>30745555I just wanted to say, that was a cool way to end the thread Crusty.The christmas thing I mean.
>>30745110It's okay Crusty, we know you're not a colossal butt.
>>30745587tempting as a double issue is....nothing is worse than a butt blasted anon, don't wanna risk bad vibes stinking up the thread
>>30745587ROLL WITH ITFuck the angry anons, the best way to calm them down is to seduce them with more writing.
>>30745587>cool downOh hell no. I voted against it but I'm dying to see whether it turns out to be useful, useless or actively problematic for JJ. Please don't leave me hanging OP.
>>30745587Every time we use it we're going to drool and burn our clothes off right? Pretty please?
>>30745592you know what i mean, fagget. we help old ladies across the street and feed smart mouthed orphans. we are never going to use this power except in hyper specific situations. it is practically useless unless we are trying to kill something.
788 post. I don't think I've ever seen a thread reach that many posts here in teegee. Just throwing that out.
>>30745589>Power that gives you panic attacksIf he didn't have a phobia of fire the no bad power would be true>>30745559As an angry anon and someone that's been following this quest for a while these shit storms blow over until we're picking our next power.No need to postpone the next thread.
>>30745733>it is practically useless unless we are trying to kill somethingYou really don't believe that's relevant?At all?
>>30745555I thought we'd failed a phobia roll already.Just to clarify, does failing such roll automatically reduce your phobia success by one, or is that reserved for phobia critfails?>>30745587Cooldown period would be good, if you don't mind. And I'm certainly not saying that just because I want to sleep soon. That would be silly.And accurate.
>>30745750>Never seen a thread hit that many postThe really big quest regularly break 1000.
>>30745587It's called head canon. I personally can dig it. Double feature plz
>>30745680yea it is that and /u/ Loli
>>30745733Well, we CAN use it to clean/dry ourselves a base, cook food and keep ourselves warm.
>>30745768Holy fuck my sides
>>30745750>I don't think I've ever seen a thread reach that many postsobviously didn;t follow princes gruard quest
>>30745733Was it lvl 2 or 3 that was effectively a blowtorch?
>>30745622Thanks mate.>>30745758Critfails only.
>>30745768Hey! Quotes don't count...
>>30745768...both ridiculously late and incorrectly formed.0/10Would not bang
>>30745826what do we need to torch through when we have super strength and adamantized claws?
>>307458262 i think level 3 gets us projectile fireballs
>>30745860Nah, I have to be relatively awake for most of the day.If I run today it'll be after a long sleep.
>>30745884our claws aren't adamantimized, they only level 1
>>30745555I've got to agree with:>>30745622Good way to end the thread.Can we get a double feature, Please?
>>30745837any more mobility options? like flame back jets? boost for jumping, to rocket flight?or super speed ? then like lighting steps? upgrade?
>>30745837double feature would be nice. I was this anon >>30743713I really really want to know if I was right. I was against firebreathing but will put it aside if I can get an answer.
>>30745934nope just wings or a cloud thing that doesn't fly
>>30745884Errr... blowtorches generally aren't used for cutting, they're used for welding two pieces of metal together. That has a fairly good amount of uses.
