Capitalism Ho! Now reinforced with extra A, B, C and D'aaaw vitamins!After moving to our new office and cleaning it nicely, we meet Aritsu's sister and went for a nice evening with Lyann and Mako.Starting the new day.*****Aritsu: "Good morning, sir. Did you had a good night?"After exchanging pleasantries, Aritsu starts updating you up on any news. Brass and wants to meet with you and Mai to discuss this weekend's match sometime during the morning, Benetton wants Aura and Okaba to wear their new line on the show, and BMW called about getting Aura and Okaba (hereafter referred to as The Couple) to appear on a series of new commercials, to show that BMW can be as sensual as it is trustworthy and elegant.Aritsu: "Also, miss Tsun called. She wants to know if you'd like to join her and miss Zaytseva at the studio."Ned: "Mako and Euphry are recording alone? That sounds as worrying as it is interesting."
>>30815063I agree with Ned on this one.
>>30815063"Interesting. I think I'll head over."I really want to see what they're up to.
>>30815126>>30815077They are still recording when you arrive at the studio. You wave at them, but they are professionals and stay focused on their work (yes, Mako IS a pro singer. She blushes but restrain herself from smiling, waving, or anything else that could pause her singing).It takes you about a solid second to realize they are recording a modern version of Hotel California, with Mako adding the lyrics, in chinese, while Euphry does the guitar, re-arranging it here and there to modernize it with 97 years worth of guitar technology and technique improvements.Mako: "This is fun." -Mako is wearing a soft, light cotton summer dress with a white, short jacket on top and wooden mules. Her long black hair is cascading loose behind her.Euphry: "It sounds garbage, record again." -Euphry is wearing a open, black leather jacket with nothing under it, and jeans. She's going around barefoot, albeit you can see a couple of high heel short lenght boots by the studio door you guess are hers. Her long blonde hair is braided on the sides, and left standing in a stylish mohawk at the middle, somehow managing to look both hard and gently caresseable at the same time, with ease.Mako: "But I like."Euphry: "That's cute, but Euphry's idea, so Euphry choose. Again."They start again from the beginning....laterMako: "Good morning, mister Salter."Euphry: "Hey."Ned: "Morning, girls. Why the old song?"Euphry: "Euphry's Lyann(?) says it's most requested song on forum. So fan service."Ned: "I didin't think you did fanservice."Euphry: "Euphry does so, a lot. Last night, pantless Euphry on forum, humping guitar. Fans like."Ned: "...I am sure they did." -makes a mental note to see if the holo can be taken down. albeit it is probably too late already-Mako: "Mister Salter, do you have any song preference?"
>>30815370Fly on the wings of love might be nice. Mako would probably sing that one well.
>>30815370The only song I can think of right now, and it would be perfect for Mako at some point, is 'Little People' by The Procussions. But I don't think she's emotionally equipped to handle the content yet...
>>30815370>>30815449They listen to Fly on the wings of love, and decide to call Stella over so she can play keyboard for them.Ned: "Why are you doing this, again?"Euphry: "Next 6 albums done. Bored, and Lyann(?) says Euphry can't burn things, so, music."Ned: "I see." -you make a mental note to send saint Lyann(?) a fruit basket and light her a candle for miracles granted.- "Well, since you have time, you'll be happy to know things are ready for the street concert this evening."Euphry: "Oooh, Euphry likes!"Mako: "Street concert? is that safe? won't be bothering people?"Stella: "This is the first I hear about that, too. Sounds fun, but you should have told us sooner. Hold on, I need to call Bella and let her know..." -goes out to the hallway to speak over the phone.Euphry: "But that's FUN" -she says in a good mood as she smiles and grabs Mako from behind into a hug, taking the change to grab, lift and squeeze her breasts through the dress- "oooh, no bra. Nice!"Mako: "Eeep" -she goes apple red as she freezes while Euphry molests her-Ned: "Euphry, don't do things she's uncomfortable with."Euphry: "These real good. Ned wants to feel too? here, give hand and squeeze"Mako: "Noooo!" -she goes even redderNed: "Did you choose what you are wearing this evening, already? why don't you go buy some old, huge speakers you can burn after the concert?"Euphry: "Oooh, burning things is Euphry's favorite, sure!" -she lets go of Mako, and leaves.Ned: "Mako, are you alright?"Mako: "Eeep..." -sobs- Ned: -hugs her softly- "She's just being friendly, you don't need to get upset over it." -caress her hair. She smells so incredibly nice, and feels just so small and soft between your armsMako: "A-alright..." -calms down slowlyNed: "Cmon, I'll see what Ami or Lyann are doing, and maybe you can go buy clothes for this evening's concert with them."Mako: "Alright."Stella: "Done, Bella says she ca- oh, sorry."Ned: "No, it's alright. Euphry upset her..."
>>30815513Stella: "Somehow, I can easily believe that." -the caramel skinned goddess is wearing a short and ragged, very, very soft looking white tube dress that leaves her long legs bare while hugging her tightly, with a cream colored, long and light-looking raincoat thrown on top, and high heel brown leather shoes with a single, solid build and feel to them.
>>30815616I think those would actually be feasibe shoes for nova girls. Just make it brown, weather/oil/stain proof leather instead of that ugly whatever it is those are made from, and done.********Ned: "Can you take her to shop for this evening?"Stella: "Sure, I'll get something for myself, as well."Your datapad buzzes again. It's the PI team. Like lastnight, they are calling to remind you to meet them this evening. They say they found a fake company Bomber Lord is using as a front for... something."
>>30815645Send an acknowledgement, then arrange a meeting with Brass.
>>30815645Send an acknowledgement.Ping Aura, Alecks and Lyann to let them know there's a show tonight (hope I'm not forgetting anyone) and send Lyann(?) that fruit basket. I'm not sure if we should loop Mai in on the bomber thing, for some reason I have a funny feeling that we might need back up.Oh and run the Benetton and BMW proposals by The Couple. We should make those deals this afternoon.
>>30815654Brass is easy to find, of course. You just go to the gym, and sure enough, he's under some ridiculous amount of weight as he works out on the gravity-powered machine.Brass: "Hey Ned!" -he greets you while holding up what is probably a medium-sized mountain worth of weight- "How's it doing?"Ned: "Great, thanks. You wanted to meet about the fight, right?"Brass: "Right, This is here is Amihk. The fans know him as Alpha Wolf." -He holds the weight up and nods towards the guy working out on the machine right next to him.Amihk Johnson is an american fighter of arabian ancestry. In nova mode, he has a coat of black fur over him, and a body like a typical steroid abusing bodybuilder with inflated, bulging muscles, except that you know from his file that it is a manifestation of his high taint, rather than a drug issue. He is wearing black shorts and white sneakers. You can imagine how he must have anything for his upper body custom made with a figure like that.Ned: "Nice to meet you, sir"Amihk: "Just call me Amihk, man. Nice to meet ya, too. I'd shake your hand but I don't think that would be safe."You notice there's some things that look like squeeze balls next to his bench, except they're made of metal. It's somewhat odd to see him talk with a wolf head, but he seems to manage it fine.Brass: "Amihk says it's his going away fight. He's retiring after it, so he wanted it to be spectacular."Amihk: "Right, noone has ever straight-out stopped my charge, so we were thinking about having just that happen on friday night."Brass: "Right, but we wanted it to actually happen, so we'll need a lot of space to train it out. Could you book Mai's place from here to friday?"
>>30815869Mai movie night is usually Friday, right? Maybe we should inviter her over to our place this week."I doubt it would be a problem, but let me give her a call."
>>30815912>>30815931SaturdayAmihk: "Thanks man. I'm already looking like this, so I'm calling it quits before anything else goes wrong."*****Want to hook Amihk up with Lyann's Tai Chi/Qui Meng lessons? I do believe someone at some point mentioned opening a gym brand for novas to learn it and keep a healthy low taint. This may be a chance for that. Perhaps not in her apartment, but she could start giving lessons on the XWF building installations. We certainly have a lot of gyms. Oh, and she has that dance floor space, she could use that at first. Her or a clone, it doesnt make much difference.
>>30815996I was actually thinking of that yeah. Question: could Lyann create a device of some kind that would grant the "extended action is a simple action" perk to someone for the purposes of meditation? Only having to do it ten minutes every day would make it a lot more popular
>>30815996>Hwant to hook Ahihk up with Lyann's Tai Chi/Qui Meng lessons?Yes, but we should run it by Lyann first. Maybe see if she'd be willing to drive out to Mai's place on Thursday or Friday to meet Amihk before she decides whether or not to take him on.So hold of on promising him anything yet, but put things in motion behind the scenes.
>>30816067Uhmm... rules wise, yes. But honestly I dont think it makes much sense fluff wise. How would it be meant to work...? ooh that reminds me, she's been with us for a month now, time to see if she can kick off another point of taint!Who wants to roll her 10d10? she needs 3 successes to drop from taint 7 to 6.If successful, do you want to kick down her social taint problem (hate/envy) or her physical taint problem (deadly allery to polyester)?
Rolled 8, 8, 3, 5, 5, 8, 8, 1, 4, 4 = 54>>30816132Social
>>30816132On further consideration, I think she should start by training novas into getting at least 1 dot on mega intelligence so they can naturally take that enhancement. Honestly, that actually makes sense to me. Her workout and meditation techniques open up your mind in new ways, and then start healing your body.
>>30816132>Uhmm... rules wise, yes. But honestly I dont think it makes much sense fluff wise. How would it be meant to work...?State of the art Quantum Meditation Chamber specifically designed to focus the mind body and quantum into alignment to [insert technobabble here]
>>30816146Ah, nice, that means she's at a -6 penalty when interacting with baselines instead of -8. Her social aberration basically doubles her social penalties, but on the plus side, that means each point of taint she loses lowers her penalties by 2.>>30816179Okay you got me. But that would make the gym fee much more expensive if each gym needs one of those. Then again, most novas can afford it, I guess*****Lyann(?): "Ned? hi! No, the original is meditating right now, but I'll gladly take your message instead... right. Sure, she'll be there. How do I know? because I'm basically her, of course. She'll be there. Take care."Brass: "Who was that?"Ned: "Ah, remember Python trying out that martial art thing?"Brass: "Right, Chi Cheng, or something?"Ned: "Qui Meng. It really does work. I arranged for a teacher to visit you guys on the ranch and give you a talk sometime during the week."Amihk: "And what's that meant to do?"Ned: "It drains taint"Amikh squeezes the bar on the weights so hard that it just snaps and the weights fall off to the floor. Thankfully, as soon as the bar snaps the geomagnetic effect stops so its just about a ton of iron instead of a small mountain hitting the floor.
>>30816286Amihk: "That kung fu thing works, seriously!?" -he sits upNed: "It really does, but you should ask the teacher about it."Amihk: "Man, if that really works, I don't need to retire. We are still doing the charge stop on friday, but this time it will be as thanks, tho."Brass: "Ah, try not to screw up your training anymore, thats all. That's what got you into this mess the first time, remember?"Amihk: "Right. Man, it'll be nice to be able to be my nova self on the street without making childen cry, you know?"*****He can turn his taint aberrations into body mods that just give him combat bonuses without freaking out people when he lowers his taint. JSYK
>>30816286"I thought you might be interested." Take a closer look at where the bar snapped. "Let me be clear for a second though, my help is in no way contingent on your performance during your match with Brass, everyone here would be disappointed if you both didn't give it your all. I just think its a shame that any of you guys get forced into retirement by taint, and it's time to start changing that."
>>30816358We're totally poaching Alpha when his contract expires. Plus the whole overuse of power forcing a stigmatizing transformation that can only be remedied by eastern meditation (primacy of the body giving way to clarity of the mind) practically sells itself as a comic book pitch...
>>30816438That's a pretty good idea.>>30816382Amihk: "If this works, I'm sure I can reach all the guys who have retired over the last three years"Ned: "That would be fantastic, I'm sure the fans would love that." *****And of course, it would be fantastic advertising for the gym franchise
>>30816505Not to mention that Lyann has a personal stake in helping other Novas lower their taint. Helping people be able to reconnect with family, friends, communities...given her life story I don't see how that wouldn't resonate with her.
You leave the gym feeling like good things will happen in the future.Indeed, soon enough you come across Lyann(?) and Euphry. Both girls are wearing matching mohawks, their bright red and golden hairdos drawing almost as much attention as their heart stopping figures. Lyann(?) is wearing long black eufiber pants with knee-high leather boots, and a white shirt with a very short (obviously purely decorative) black leather jacket that is little more than just the sleeves and neck of a real jacket.Euphry is still wearing the same open, blleather jacket with nothing under it, jeans and black boots under the jeans.Euphry: "Ned! help Euphry, please!"Lyann(?): "Did you tell her she could burn her speakers at the show?"Euphry: "Old ones! not your nice nice super speakers."Lyann: "You can't burn ANY speakers at the concert! it's dangerous!"Euphry: "Ned!"
>>30816619We said that off the cuff (which I somewhat regret) but we're getting the Krew to build the stage right? It'll be fine. Also, we ought to get Euphry licensed as a pyrotechnician if she isn't already."Lyann(?), we're going to have multiple Krew pyrotechnicians on hand, a fire brigade on hand in case anything happens and more EMTs than I can count, just in case. It will be fine.""Euphry, just to be clear in case I wasn't earlier, run your plans by the Krew in case they need to tweak things for safety's sake or think you can get away with more...since I didn't think of it til now, no flamethrowers. I'm pretty sure you would need to push the crowds back an extra 50 feet and today's about them getting up close and personal right? Besides, I kind of want you to save the big toys for the tour I'm planning."
>>30816721You cool the situation with the girls, and they invite you to lunch with them.Do you want to go with them, or go back to the office and see about Benetton and maybe BMW now?
>>30816792I keep forgetting Mako has long hair, really did that costum for her though.Hmm, tempted though I am to join them for lunch, I think we should get a jump on organizing that world tour. Priorities should first be chartering/purchasing a sufficiently large jet to transport both the full crew and all the equipment we'll be hauling and second posting open roadie positions for any Krew members whose vacation time lines up with our intended schedule (after clearing that with Ric). We're willing to fly people in and out as their schedules allow as long as they can give us at least three weeks, and we're willing to check out anyone referred to us by Krew.
>>30816909http://youtu.be/gBYQAR8fG1wAlright, roll 16d10 for organizing the tour,. I would normally ask for a extended check, but since Ned has the enhancement that lets him make it into a normal task, he's just good enough he can organize a world tour in 20 minutes
Rolled 5, 8, 2, 5, 8, 1, 1, 7, 3, 6, 8, 6, 9, 1, 9, 5 = 84>>30817091Twenty minutes might be stretching things, even for Ned....
>>30817136well, I assume it will take him a week, regardless, but i meant 20 minutes a day, then let the humans catch up to him all day long.Aritsu: "Sir, the Benetton people would like to know if Aura and Okaba could try to be seen cuddling on the couch wearing their clothes. You know, nothing too sexual, just enough to catch the audience's interest."
>>30817200"Tell them that I make not promises to the extent of cute lewd Aura might bring to the table if cuddling is involved. Oh a side note, this sandwich is delicious, Aritsu. Truly this is the food of the victorious negotiator!"
>>30817200sounds Okay to me
>>30816792>>30817091Is there more or source for this comic?
>>30817227Aritsu: "Thank you sir."Ned: "Call me Ned."Aritsu: "Yes sir"Ned: -sigh- "Alright, but they do understand that it is not a scripted show, right? I can ask Aura to try but that will be it."*****Roll 17d10 for how good the deal is, and someone else roll 15d10 for Aura's performance (she gets a obscene amount of extra successes when trying to act seductive.

Rolled 1, 7, 2 = 10>>3081738210 successes, I dont see much point on rolling exploding dice. Its an awesome deal. Aura and Okaba both get unlimited credit when its for Benetton clothes in the future. You are not sure if that's really due to your prowess or cleverness on their part, tho.>>3081744112 successes on Aura's seduction roll, plus +12 successes from enhancements and her taint doubling her enhancement bonuses whether she wants to or not. Rolling exploding dice.>>30817541http://www.fakku.net/doujinshi/sonas-poro-feeding-diary-english/read#page=1****Okaba is watching the news on the living room's holo with Michael, when the young silver fighter leaves to go out to a movie. Dressed in comfortable pants and sneakers, Okaba enjoys having the couch to himself, stretching his wings.There were some comments about him being the beefcake of the show, with mixed responses going from "are you complaining?" to "where do you buy shirts with wing holes?".He reaches for the drink on the little table by the couch's side, just to find Aura's thigh as she moved to sit there at some point, wearing a colorful, light blue sweater and apparently very little else.Aura: "Uhmm?" -smilesOkaba: "What did you do with my drink?"Aura: "I had it. But don't worry, I'm a fair person, so you can have me in return." -she says as she slips from the couch unto his lap in a fluid, seemingly weightless motion, then squirms in place as she gets comfortable.Her sweater rolls up a little, making it clear to the front camera that she's wearing nothing else as it gets a shot of the side of her bare waist and hips as she squirms against Okaba's lap.Okaba looks at her, and holds her with and arm against her back, gently, as if she could break if he actually hug her.Okaba: "You know I have trouble finding that brand in the states."Aura: "You know I'm not joking."Okaba: -sighs- "Fine" -he smooches her on the nose and then caresses her chin a bit- "There. You were delicious."Aura: "Not fair."
Rolled 2, 3, 9 = 14>>30817653Oakaba's fan club page swells as thousands of young girls across the states vote for him as husbando of the year. Aura's hate club swells by about as much, oddly(?) enough.Aura's official website and specially the gallery sections swell after the show, as everyone seems to want images from the other cameras (which are available for a premium fee). As it turns out, she was wearing a high-cut white panty that didin't show when looked at from the side. Noone complains, anyway.****Now roll 17d10 for the BMW deal, and 15d10 for the couple's performance in the commercial

>>3081773416 successes. You could probably ask for a free car, if they hadnt offered you and Okaba one already. Aura likes bikes, so she passes.7 successes and rolling for exploding dice. The commercial is successful enough that BMW sees their stock raise by 60% over the following year. They ask if it would be possible to pay Okaba to take Aura to awards, clubs and events around LA on the car, where paparazzis are likely to see them.Okaba: "I don't mind. It all goes to charity and she likes to go clubbing, anyway."Ned: "I didint know you liked it, tho."Okaba: "I enjoy being with her, regardless. Would I prefer it if we went to a library or worked in some charity kitchen instead? yes, but if it makes her happy..."Ned: "Just marry already, man"Okaba: "When she feels ready, if she feels ready."
>>30817935You arrange for Mai to let Brass and Alpha use her ranch to prepare for friday, and finally sit back to enjoy your sandwich.Aritsu: "You cant just have sandwiches everyday, sir."Ned: "Is alright, your sandwiches are delicious"She stands with her hands on her hips, feet at shoulder distance as she gives Ned a stare. She looks beautiful. Annoyed, but beautifulNed: "My god, that's dreadful! do you do that to Sinoe too?"Aritsu: "When she tries to hide her peas, yes."Ned: "Alright, let's just finish organizing the world tour and we'll have proper meals. I think it should be about a week or two, top."Aritsu: "Yes sir."Finishing the work day, you call Lyann to let her know you will be on time today.Lyann: "I'm in the building.

She is absolutely happy, as her new, reduced taint fits almost perfectly within the supression aura of Mako's friendly atmosphere enhancement.Lyann: "Ned!" -she looks like a happy schoolgirl.- "what do you think?" -she says holding a white and red silk dress on top of herself.Then again, she could make a mud stain appear stylish.Ned: "You know, I am being honest when I say you would look gorgeous in or out of anything, Lyann. Where is Mako?"Lyann: "Oh, she's hiding in the changing booth behind you. She's trying on cocktail dresses."Mako: "I'm not here!" -softlyLyann: "Mako, you looked beautiful, come out so Ned can see you."Mako: "No"****Want to roll diplomacy (14d10) or let her change into her normal clothes, then take them both away?

Theres some "eep!" and soft laughing and an "I give!" and a very red Mako comes out of the changing room. The dress fits her like a glove, showcasing her beautiful figure while covering her all the way down to the floor, exposing her only from her shoulders up.Mako: "My shoulders look so embarrassing!" -she says as she tries to cover her bare shoulders with her small hands.Lyann: "Mako, we have both seen you in a swimsuit by now"Mako: "B-but you said that was proper clothes for the pool. And this dress shows so much skin for a party dress!"Lyann: "Miss! could you please bring me the showiest dress you have? thankyou. Mako, for a party dress, you are wearing the equivalent of a burka. Trust me."She leaves Mako in your care as she goes into the changing room to change into the dress.Mako: "It really isin't... improper?"***1) tease her (a little, least she faints from embarrassment)2) reassure her its fine

Mao Mao looks bigger."Ned: "Mao Ma--- ah... your pupp-- aaah! where did you hear that?"Mako: "Euphry calls them puppies."Ned has to stop himself from laughing, probably burnt a willpower point if needed.Ned: "Mako, everything about you looks wonderful. I'm a bit curious about how you got the dress to hide your underwear, tho."Lyann: "I got her into a C string!" -she says from inside the booth before opening the curtain.She is wearing an absolute cleavage little red dress that seems to hold unto her by an absolute act of God, without any visible straps to hold itself into place.Mako: "You shouldnt show your pajamas out here!"Lyann: "It's a dress, Mako. A party dress. You've never seen the Oscar Awards?"Mako: -shakes her head- "No."Lyann: "Ned, what do you think?" -she spins a little to let you take a good look. The dress cleavage is identical in the back as it is in the front. It takes you a moment to realize it's clinging from her collar.Lyann: "Think it would look better if I pulled my hair into a bun?"Ned: "I think it would look criminal."******There's really no point to having Lyann roll style, she gets +21 extra successes and roll 19d10 anyway.

She loves the idea, and seems positively bubbling with excitement about it.Mako: "You really do not think Lyann is playing joke on me?"Lyann: "Playing A joke on me. And I swear I am not, Mako."Mako: "..alright"The Tai Chi goes well, and Lyann decides to start easing you into Qui Meng as well. Mako joins in, this time as a student. The evening is warm but pleasant, but you have to leave before movie time, as you have to meet your PI staff.Ned: "Mako, do you want me to drive you home?"Mako: "Is a bit early, but if you have duty, I support you."Lyann: "That sounds... correct, and yet I feel you wanted to use other words, somehow. Have a good night, Ned"Ned: "Thank you. And come on Mako, I am sure Mao Mao will be happy to see you are back."Mako is happy to have spend the day with you, and as you park the car, she looks at you and blushes for a moment, then leans in and... holds your hand between them.Mako: "Thank you for today, mister Salter." -she lets go of your hand, blushing, and hurries to her building.******Lets stop here for today, guys. I'll see you tomorrow . As usual, I will be checking the thread for questions and comments anyway
>>30818885We did take a holo of the two of them in their dresses for the office or appartement wall, right?
>>30818929I dont see why notJust a question. Is polygamy legal in any state in the US, or if Ned marries both of them, will he have to go to the middle east for it?
>>30819038Google is a good route for that info, and I "think" there's a few, but mainly through religious means, Mormons and the like. Polygamy isn't illegal itself, But multiple wives is without those exceptions
>>30819092Eh, just thinking they would look gorgeous on white wedding dresses.
>>30819038Pretty sure they outlawed it in Utah and right now it's slightly more likely that the country'll abolish the institution of marriage rather than legalize it. So no. However, they're nothing stopping co-habitation or raising non-traditional families, though the courts do tend to go out of there way to look for alicgations of abuse or other violations of law to crack down on.Tl;dr It would be doable but challenging to set up an equivalent legal framework to a polygamist manage and the marriage itself wouldn't be legally recognized, but it's more or less doable. Just expect it to turn heads and conservative politicians and Lawyers to constantly reference us as what's wrong with the state of the country.
>>30819038The second marriage civil license isn't valid in the United States, though they do acknowledge other countries licenses in most cases.>>30819155>Pretty sure they outlawed it in Utah and right now it's slightly more likely that the country'll abolish the institution of marriage rather than legalize it. So no. However, they're nothing stopping co-habitation or raising non-traditional families, though the courts do tend to go out of there way to look for alicgations of abuse or other violations of law to crack down on.Which has blown up in their faces spectacularly a time or two when the police got to eager.
>>30819092Let me rephrase myself. You can do whatever you want religiously, but the state doesn't have to back them.
>>30819038You wouldn't have to go to the middle east though. Plenty of African countries plus India.
>>30819207I didint know about India, seems fine. A question tho, during the world tour, is Ned going with them or staying in LA?
>>30819207Only for Muslim citizens, Indians convert to get around the law. A Buddhist country allows it though. Whatever Mako sings comes to life, can she sing laws? Maybe if she sang in the founding fathers we could get them to tell liberal gungrabbers to shut up.
>>30819260Yikes.Would Ric allow it?
>>30819283>Only for Muslim citizens, Indians convert to get around the law.thus proving the general futility of trying to legislate religion.>>30819260Depends, will we have thrown Bomber in prison yet?
>>30819260I think we'll be joining them for legs of it, but we need to be there to coach Ami in preparaction for the bringing of the Gold season...so part of the time we're with them (definitely for the shows in the gangs' home cities) and part of the time we're in L.A. But we'll be in contact via holo the whole time. Don't forget we'll be filming a tour documentary and running the MTV cameras for at least one live streamed show.
>>30819283If Mako sang the founding fathers, the US would realise that the gun obsessives have gone full batshit, the NRA are nothing but a sales lobby group, and that the spirit of the second amendment was about defending against an occupying force, not to use as a threat against people whose political views you disagree with>Conservatives' faces when the rise of Novas has basically caused mass social liberalisation, because the old structures that stopped reform from taking place have been shattered
>>30819656That's somewhat ambiguous. I will agree that they'd have quite a few unpleasant surprises when it comes to the roll of religion in society. Of course, if they realized what we've justified under the commerce clause they'd have a heart attack.
>>30819353>proving the general futility of trying to legislate religionOr providing state/federal benefits on the basis of religious institutions. I digress.>>30819134They would.>>30819038Doesn't Lyann own an island? If it's far enough from land we can probably get her micro nation status with the UN and have her make whatever marriage we want legally recognized there. Then it's just getting that recognized by foreign governments and they aren't going to have about a nation with three people enough to block our clout. Plus they'd want to stay on Lyann's good side.
>>30819260>Gah, things I forgot to ask before the 4chan downtime.The Street Show is happening while we talk to our PIs right? Do we have a plan to get back to the concert scene (preferably somewhere out of the way back stage) and did we arrange transportation for Mako since I'm pretty sure she doesn't drive?
>>30820186>>30819744Thats a fair point, but IIRC owning a (greek in this case) island still means the island is under greek law. It's just private ground, like your house.If you want to truly own an island and rule it however you want, you'll need to build one. Either get someone who can make a volcanoe erupt or build a platform somewhere.Then again, theres plenty of city states left in europe, countries that are tiny dots on the map. Probably one of thsoe would let youAnd yeah, that downtime was awful
>>30820186I assumed we were sending a company car for her?
>>30820299>Greek islandYeah, couldn't remember whether it was close enough to shore to fall under their jurisdiction or not. Shucks.Hmm, if it ever comes up I say we discuss with Lyann whether it's easier to take over a micro nation or build a new land mass in international waters. >>30820311Phew, just wanted to make sure we didn't forget about it.
>>30820416>Implying distance = jurisdiction in the modern world. Chile owns eastern island. Grab a map and see how close it is to southamerica. A chilean poet registered the moon back in 1971... it doesn't really matters. What you need is new ground.Honestly I am 50/50 on that. Taking a 1 city principality would be easier, but wouldnt we be the bad guys trying to take over? She could conceivably create a new island, but while I can see getting a volcano to erupt within reach of nova SCIENCE! I cant imagine how you get it to stop erupting when you want it to
>>30820682She could just build a portal to another life-bearing planet instead. Or create Atlantis
>>30820682>A Chilean poet registered the moon back in 1971Unless my history teachers have been lipping to me my entire life, but treaty no country can make claim to territory on the moon or mars. Technically that doesn't (as far as I know) disallow personal ownership of property on those two, but good luck getting any legal authority to back your claim.Only bringing it up because I do still want to build a residence into the side of Olympus Mons. >volcanoe vs city-state acquisitionJust a thought, I prefer having a private tropical island myself.
