You’re John James Green. You’re thirteen. Sunlight tiptoes cautiously through the blinds, scoring long, fiery streaks across your room. You do your best to ignore it, smothering yourself in the vague, churning universe of your bedsheets, their warmth moulding to you, slipping about you, like yoke. Your bag is packed at the feet of the bed. The suit hangs like a long, dismembered shadow from your closet, looming over you. It’s been three days now, but you still haven’t packed it away. You can smell the grass outside, swooning gently in the wind, eager, green tips responding to the summer sun. Window’s open behind the blinds, and not far away, the lake sighs in and out, its breath stretching lazily across the beaches. “JJ! Jay Jaaay!” Your sister’s voice wobbles its way up the stairs. She sounds like she’s trying to hold way too many things at once. There is a momentary silence, leaving you alone with the softness of the sheets, and then: “John! Get down here!” >[ ] Get up.>[ ] No, you don’t want to. You don’t even feel like eating, you just want to sleep.
>>30819491>>[x] Get up.Maybe its candy!
>>30819491>>[ ] No, you don’t want to. You don’t even feel like eating, you just want to sleep.Tiny!JJ sleepy. Ignore everything.
http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrh>FLORAL AFFINITY>Requires: Level 2 Animal Affinity, Level 2 Photosynthetic Biology>Cost: 1>JJ may speak to and get responses from plants. Their perspective is difficult to understand, but can offer a certain amount of insight. >GREEN FINGER>Requires: Floral Affinity>Cost: 1>JJ may coax plants to grow in unnatural ways or with unheard of speed. For example, he could make seeds sprout into fully grown plants in a matter of hours, convince weeds to limit their grown or kill themselves, or redirect and accelerate the growth of a tangle of creepers. With additional practice he could make certain crops exceptionally nourishing or control their exact nutritional contents.Animal Affinity+ Photosynthetic Biology= JJ the Druid
>>30819491>[ ] Get up.
>>30819491>[ ] Get up.Come on you poor bastard, time to get to work.
>>30819595well jj the sonic agility guy is dead unfortunately.
>>30819491Get up>>30819618GoodSonic a shit
>>30819629Armour piercing is better than AOE.
>>30819618>>30819629>>30819643Don't start that again, it was done with last thread.Focus on what we do from here on out now.
>>30819618>>30819629>>30819643Its over its done. let it go. both you.HMQ needs not the cancerous pointless argument
>>30819618Shame too, JJ could totally have scared the living shit out of some villains by pretending to be a ghost. Basically just go invisible, start screaming an unearthly scream, scratch the walls, throw shit around and use ink to make black, wet handprints appear everywhere. Still, I guess you just gotta play with the hands you've been dealt. Here's hoping for druid JJ.
>>30819646I agree, Draconic breath was a terrible choice but we need to learn to live with our mistakes and get on with the thread.
>>30819652ranged option was the only where people got noticeably buttflustered
>>30819646>>30819658Can't really stifle relevant discussionPeople just need to learn to let it go and not get so angry next time.
>>30819679i need some one to sell me on the photo synthesis since i like the genetic copy power more.
>>30819692I was mostly annoyed that they tried to go with a dragon theme, i was ok with the choice itself, but the people advocating for it seemed retarded, by constantly saying dragon theme, and that we would have to get over our fear of fire if we shoot it out of our mouths(confirmed by crusty that it can back fire as well, but never mentioned in their arguments).plus rolling to use it is gonna be a pain.
>>30819652This was bound to happen so: When voting on new powers people keep looking at what those powers can do at levels 4 & 5. It's like they actually think that we are going to get those higher level powers. Here is a list of level one powers we already have.ENHANCED AGILITY>Next level: Our reflexes will just barely keep up with Laura and BarracudaCLAWS & FANGS>Next level: Longer Claws that can cut through steel like butterELECTROSTATIC TOUCH>Next level: We can kill normal humans with a touch, and stun more durable opponentsADHESIVE TOUCH>Next level: No more skill rolls for wall crawlingSUBDERMAL BIOWEAVE>Next level: Thicker skinDRACONIC BREATH>Next level: Can produce a one meter flameI'm getting the feeling we are never going to upgrade any of these powers. We are just going to keep buying new powers. People voted for dragon breath because they though we would actually be able to breath fire but if you actually read the description all we have now is pepper spray breath. Which is useless since we have taserhands.I'm not trying to hate on the people that voted for breath. But in the future if you want a new power please ONLY look at levels 1 & 2. Because there's a 80% chance those are the only levels we're ever going to get.
>>30819693Discussion is fine,rampant and pointless arguing isn't.>>30819702Would let us, at a high enough level + wings, stay in the air indefinitely, could literally travel anywhere and not be stopped by anyone. Just fly through clouds for water.Not to mention: the boost other abilitys would let us get access to power levels otherwise permanently locked, like healing 4, during times when we really need it.Genetic copy is nice, but its limited in that it needs consumption, presumably each time, and its last teir is as good as locked considering the character.
It'll come when you least expect it.
>>30819491>[ ] Get up.Choosing the ability to breathe fire when we're terrified of fire seems questionable, alas I wasn't available to vote. I was going for optical force blasts. Sonic scream was in second, has some great unlockable abilities
>>30819742The dragon thing was something exaggerated by sonicscream fans thoughReally like 2 people mentioned it seriously. Besides, JJ's a canon lizard elf fairy
>>30819743Very dependable on how many X points we get.The subdermal WILL get upgraded, its basically internal armor, and now we have maxed out our healing is the best bet to limiting damage.
>>30819759Can you imagine it, being invisible and using our redirecting force blasts to wreck people. Throw in geointuitive vision and awesomeness would be had.
>>30819745>access to power levels otherwise permanently lockedreally?I thought it just saved a battery to boost a stat.I was somewhat turned off by it since it takes at level 3 to become useful, and 4 to be good.you just reminded me of all the sonic scream and wing powers never gonna be used now, but speaking of which what are the extra stuff for breath?
>>30819742maybe we won't roll like shit anon. A man can dream.
>>30819784>JJ's a canon lizard elf fairyI was talking about this specifically by falling back on blanket statements and saying its becuase JJ is blank for their argument for the power.>The dragon thing was something exaggeratedI'll give you that, but in some threads you couldn't tell the who was joking and who was serious.
>[X] Get up.Groaning incomprehensibly, you drag yourself out of bed, the warmth of the sheets receding into the cool, hard touch of the wood paneling beneath your feet. You wish you had a carpet or something, that would be much better.You throw your uniform on with little care for how it looks, shrugging your blazer up your shoulders while you pad incoherently toward the bathroom. You brush your teeth and gargle some mouthwash, occasional deflecting a shout from down below, before descending the stairs. As you round the corner into the kitchen, you hear Joyce stifle a big fat Bad Word, something clattering at her feet. Your sister appears to be doing something with the stove, maybe cooking, maybe ending the world as we know it, it’s debatable at this point. The smell of bacon, churning deliciously in its own juices, cuts through the early-morning fugue. Huh. Mom would never’ve let you have bacon for breakfast. Not healthy, or something. Joyce straightens up weirdly when she sees you, smiling. Someone else’d probably miss it, but you see the tearing at the edges.“Heya, JJ.” She holds up a pan full of sizzling meat. “Hungry?” >[ ] Nah, you’re okay, you just wanna go to school and get the day over with.>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.
>>30819797Temporarily. It will probably be like a one shot booster per fight. Also it'll make JJ Green, which is amusing to me.
>>30819797>http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhHEATPROOFINGRequires: Level 3 Subdermal Bioweave, Level 2 Draconic Breath OR Optical Heat BlastsCost: 1JJ’s mesh armour becomes more resistant to heat, lessening the chances of thermal damage causing deem tissue injuries. THERMAL PINIONSRequires: Level 5 Winged Flight, Level 1 Draconic Breath OR Optical Heat BlastsCost: 1The edges of JJ’s wings may superheat at will, allowing them to slice through hardened materials with greater ease.decent but not mind blowing
>>30819702This is the main selling point>Level 4: JJ shakes off fatigue and illness more easily when under the sun. He can choose to temporarily boost one of his attributes to heightened levels by burning through stored solar energy.If I understand this correctly, using this, JJ could theoretically buff his powers past their current level.
>>30819832More will likely come with time.>>30819829>[ ] Nah, you’re okay, you just wanna go to school and get the day over with.Something is off.
>>30819785I think agility is next on the list before armour, since its better to dodge the shit instead of taking the hit.
>>30819829>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.New theory: Joyce burned down EVERYTHING
>>30819829>>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.she worked on this JJ
>>30819743Actually, our agility is already at level that our reflexes are on par with Laura and Barracuda. Next level would just outright surpass them.
Rolled 14>>30819813JJ owes the dice god thier crack money anon, thats not gonna happen for a while.
>>30819743DRACONIC BREATH>Next level: Can produce a one meter flameAND shoot fireballs for long distance fighting.
>>30819832>The edges of JJ’s wings may superheat at will, allowing them to slice through hardened materials with greater ease.That's pretty sweet
>>30819832hopefully, but i can't think of any powers for it at the moment.
>>30819829>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.
>>30819885that can be dodged.
>>30819885Projectiles aren't that amazing in this universe anon.
>>30819889SONIC VIBRATION FIELDRequires: Level 5 Winged Flight, Level 1 Sonic ScreamCost: 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.Its basically the same powers, but i wonder what the optic blast version would be.
>>30819918>>30819911Speaking of which how fast/far can they be thrown?
>>30819829>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.>>30819889It's cool but sonic scream had the same thing. Draconic doesn't have much going for it right now, hopefully crusty adds some more Extrapolative's for it since we're stuck with it.
>>30819926Except we're locked out of Sonic Scream, remember?
>>30819832All these powers.And all I can think of is all the cool sexual tricks we could do with ENHANCED CONTORTION
>>30819944He's telling that anon that sonic scream had the same ability anon, not saying we can get it.
>>30819936Yeah, an earlier fireproofing power would be nice since otherwise it's going to be pretty painful/crippling to use.
>>30819918We still need a ranged attack though.
>>30819944that much is obvious, but i still asked about optic blast, since each of the ranged powers had something similar i was wondering if the flavor text for wings for that one was gonna be something similar to the juggernauts power..
>>30819958Enhanced Contortion? Look at the description for Adhesive Tongue.
>>30819958I still want that for easy escape from grapples like Kimi and small exits.
>>30819966Oh god, there's going to be so much rage when we fail a roll to use it in a critical situation. I imagine JJ will just freeze up and we'll get fucked.Honestly Draconic breath seems pretty lethal, how we going to deal with that? Are we just going to burn people alive or not use it against 90% of people we fight?
>>308199723 other ranged powers were faster and had more ranged at level 1 and 2.
>>30819829>>[ ] Yeah you hungry, you super hungry.GUYS. Can we please stop arguing about the potential future merits of purchasing powers we've already purchased/are locked out of purchasing.Or, you know, stop arguing about powers period until we have points. That could be nice too.
>>30819930No idea, it just says Level 2: JJ spits fire. He may expel a short-ranged (less than a meter) tongue of blue flame, or ‘lob’ small, arcing packets of similarly ignited particles over greater distances. His breath may cause immediate second degree burns.Personally, I didn't vote for it, but I'd like that we make the most out of what we've got and for that, we sort of need lvl 2 at least for it to be any use in combat. When we do get it to lvl 2, it's better than the others at lvl 2 on my opinion, seeing that it can be used to flush out mooks from cover.
>[X] Yeah you hungryYou guess you’re hungry. Feels weird to be smelling meat this early in the morning. Cooked meat, anyway. Ham can happen.“Yeah…” You mumble, pulling up a chair. You sister moseys on over, still smiling broadly, and dumps a whole stack of bacon on your plate, followed by a sloppy, barely-recognizable egg. The edges are all burnt and she sloshes grease all over the plate, but you withhold any comments on the subject, just staring down at your huge, glistening breakfast for a moment.“How is it?” She asks, her voice cracking a little. You start up, realizing you’ve been frozen in thought, and take your first bite. It’s alright. Hard at the edges. The egg is kinda soupy and you don’t really like getting yoke all over your bacon, but… “It’s nice.” “Cool.” She slumps down opposite you, holding her plate close to her face, and proceeds to shovel it down her gob at prodigious speed. You can’t help but wonder if she’s even tasting any of it. Must just but one big rush of greasy, soupy mess, white and yoke and fat and meat all indistinguishable from one another. You try not to make too much of a show of picking apart your food, eating quickly. When you’re done, you feel about two tiers less healthy, but you can’t help but admit, in some guilty, shameless corner of your soul, that it makes a kinda nice departure from the norm. Well… it’s time for school, you guess. That thing.>[ ] Go to school.>[ ] Press for more time out. You can stretch this thing, you know it.
>>30820005sounds about right.>>30820010whos arguing?

OKAY POSTING RETURNS.I can't stay up all night, unfortunately, but I'll get you guys a little further if there's still lots of peeps around. And then I'll run again tomorrow.
Crusty only has so much time set aside for this quest so even if he does pick it back up it would be short.
>>30820022>[ ] Press for more time out. You can stretch this thing, you know it.
>>30820022I do believe this sums up my feelings accordingly with this development..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuoKNZjr8_UAnyway, back to JJ.>>[ ] Go to school.School is useful. If we get our grades up, that should help our application to music college after we graduate in a few years. With our talent, we'll get in, and then we'll become a world-famous virtuoso. This plan is foolproof!...unless I'm interpereting wrong. This is pre-powers JJ, right?
>>30820095>>30820096He beat be to it. Carry on good sir.

>>30820134Crusty, just so you know, you're the best!
>[X] Go to school.Sliding off your seat, you glance across the table, at your sister. She’s munching away at her full-course atrocity of a breakfast, apparently oblivious to everything in the world that isn’t bacon. You can’t help but smile, just a little. You head to the door, the first touch of the breeze nuzzling over you as you drag it open, and your sister’s voice calls after you. “Hey!” Her fork clatters down and she throws herself up, swallowing a mouthful of pig/egg/unidentifiable black stuff, making her way after you. “Hey, um, I’ll drive you in, okay?” You look up at her. The look in her eyes is wholly unfamiliar, something you have no compass for, something she has no compass for. “N…” Your throat is dry. You swallow. “…No, it’s… that’s okay, I can walk it. It’s early.” She shakes her head and scrunches her eyes up, her demeanour conveying a very flat and absolute ‘no’. “It’s cool, I can drop you off.” She assures you. And herself, you think. “Come on, get in the car.” As you leave, you look back just for a moment, at her half-finished plate. That’s not like her. >[ ] INSIST that you can walk. >[ ] Okay whatever, let’s go.
>>30820271>[ ] Okay whatever, let’s go.
>>30820271>[ ] Okay whatever, let’s go.why walk when you can ride?

I wonder what kind of car Joyce had?

>(1/2)>[X] Okay whatever, let’s go.You kind of wanted some time to yourself, but you’re getting some very clear signals here, and they all indicate that resistance is futile in this case. We are the Joyce, your social and personal awkwardness will be added to our uncomfortable car ride. “Remember, fasten your seatbelt.” Says your sister, her voice a note sharper, as you clamber into the car. You respond with silence, clipping it in place, and settle in. You feel the engine rumble and the sky lurches across the windscreen, and you head into town. The ride is mostly a quiet one. You ask if you can have the radio on, and for a moment it seems like Joyce is ignoring you, before you pester her again about it. She shoots you a harried, surprised glance, and mutters that she didn’t hear you the first time. She drives slowly, and winds it down even further you she get into town. Occasionally you glance up at her and she’s biting her lip indecisively, as if dreading the next turn, or the next traffic light (not that there are many, really. Small town). Eventually, she pulls up on the street opposite school. The first few early risers are already swaying blearily onto the premises, their thoughts and actions muted by the shimmering warmth of early summer. You shove the door open, and are a little taken aback when her arms close around you from behind, drawing you into a long, tight hug. You remember the sun-baked smell of her clothes, her warmth, how tight she squeezed you – she held on as if it would somehow stop the entire world, catching the morning in its dawning effervescence, holding it hostage. You remember closing your eyes and just breathing.
>(2/2)Eventually, she lets go, and you hang awkwardly in the moment after, fumbling your way out of the car. She sniffs and brushes her hair back.“No swimming club today, okay?” She looks down at you. Is that fear in her eyes? “There’s a guy from social services coming over, so you need to get home early. I’ll drop by to pick you up, yeah?” You nod. She smiles broadly, a hint of her ridiculous, toothy grin shining through. “Alright, see ya. Have fun.” “Bye.” You wave as your parents’ SUV recedes down the street. School yawns out in front of you.>[ ] Go in. >[ ] You don’t feel like it. Go… wander, or something.

Joyce is 2 basedWhen do find out she's a super villain

When she gave us combat training.
How long does level 1 genetic mimicy last? I'm thinking JJ could walk around looking completely human as long as he took Laura with him to re-new the change every now and then.They could do it by kissing

>>30821123I like these, you go to hell.
>(1/2)>[X] Go in. You feel vaguely sick as you cross the road toward the front gates, but you push it down, binding it tight and holding it in that jitter-place, the dark hold where the nerves before a performance go. There are lots of shapes lurking there lately, just out of comprehension, rendered mercifully indistinct by the omnipresent, looming grey shadows of the place. Some thick, some thin, some stooped or bearded or sickly and disjointed. You close the doors hard. They don’t make a big deal, the teachers. Not when you’re around. You make your way to homeroom in silence, whispers burning at your ears. How many are real, and how many are constructs of your paranoia, you’ll never know, but some of them must be real. Occasionally you catch a stray look as you trudge by the lockers. Something withheld, something made of pity, something made or scorn or derision or – worst of all – that undecided, foundering vagueness, an expression with no sure rudder behind it. You’re glad you’re not staying for swimming. Homeroom passes uneventfully. Brian and Kat talk to you, but they don’t say anything about It. Neither do you. You keep it locked away behind your face, behind all your faces, the tombstone-shaped shadow looming over everything. When the bell chimes and it’s time to make your way to your first class, you’re almost relieved to be away from your friends for a moment, taking the opportunity to pretend you’ve left something in your locker so you can have some time to yourself before looping back around.
>(2/2)First class is history. You file in, taking your usual seat by the window. Ms Jones, your stoic, unflappable teacher, strolls in and begins going through a short run-through of the last lesion. Immediately, you are struck by the horrific realization that you’ve forgotten your bag, all your books with it. A pang of dark, hot shame stabs through you. You can’t put your hand up. Can’t draw attention. But, what if someone figures it out? That’d be even worse, wouldn’t it?That searing, wet warmth begins to gather behind your eyes…>[ ] Put your hand up.>[ ] NOPE no no no, just pretend you have your stuff, look nobody in the eye.

>[X] NOPENo, you can’t. You can’t be the one everyone looks at. You glance both ways, checking your peripherals, before folding your arms neatly over your desk. You stare intently at the events unfolding on the blackboard, as if Ms Jones’ commentary on the Siegfried Line is just too damn interesting to look away from. You couldn’t check your book if you tried, you’re so fascinated. This is some intriguing shit right here. Of course, you’re so intent on looking… intent… that very little of what her deadpan voice spells out is actually making a home in your skull, the fine details mostly just washing out through the fissures between thoughts. Man, what if she asks you a question. Would she do that? It’s your first day back, after all. Then again, this is Ms Jones you’re talking about here, whose stony demeanour could turn aside a glacial shift. You’ve never known her to pull punches. Hell, for a while there was even a rumour that she was a mutant with, like, stone skin or something. That's how low her punch-pulling factor is. So low that people started assuming she was literally a rock person.Your thoughts are still screeching at one another when someone on the desk beside you speaks up, addressing you in a low, conspiratorial whisper: “Psst!” You glance over, desperately hoping that you haven’t been caught out. “Hey, forgot your books?” Oh, it’s just that guy. Joseph Typhon, your classmate for many years, who has always been here and is not out of place at all. This person has been in your class since [bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz–], so you can definitely trust him. He’s a trustworthy guy, he wouldn’t do anything to hurt you.

He’s got a spare! You feel the front of your head crackle and shift. Time loosens and flows around you, everyone turning into silt, everything into ash, dust, dust to dust, ashes to ashes – “We are gathered here today to celebrate a life and mourn a loss”– – – Time clicks back into place. You’re standing at one of the small, out-of-the-way doors leading out into the school courtyard. The day has lurched forward, dull, reddening fingers stretching through the sky. Ecstatic, youthful shapes move through the dwindling light, spilling out toward the road, toward home. Your cheeks burn. Ms Jones stands beside you, her huge, indecipherable eyes staring down at you, holding out no questions and no answers, and nothing hidden or assumed. “Sorry.” You mutter again. “For not telling immediately.” “It is understandable.” She says. “In future, however, you needn’t be ashamed. Are you being picked up today, Green?” You nod. “Yeah.

Okay, I know this ain't my style, but I gotta call it if I'm gonna be in any shape to run again tomorrow. Also if I want to be able to function effectively during the day. I'll begin the next thread taking into account the last votes from today.Finally, if you can spot today's cameo, there may be bonus tomorrow.
>>30821960We can use the arcing from our taser hands to ignite our breath, right?

I'm pretty sure we got all powerful plot armor on JJ, so>embrace the bro that is Typhon
>>30822058Crusty, a lot of people voted for dragon breathe because they thought it would help JJ overcome his fear. Can we get an answer on this? If it turns out it won’t help with the phobia, then I kind of feel like we made the vote based on false information.
>>30822051>today's cameoUhhThe teacher?

>>30822104People pointed out that this was a bad assumption, anon.Nobody was ignorant. Only willfully deaf.
>>30822120>It's not false information if you made up that information yourselfI mean that it's not his fault that you all were voting "misguidedly".
>>30822058>>30821166>Brian and Kat>>30821179>Ms JonesThese are the only characters that have come up. I say kat is Kitty Pryde.
>>30821960Oh, crap. They've infected our internal monologue. Not good.Thankfully, however, we do know someone who can help.Good thread, Crusty. Short and paranoia-inducing as it was.
>>30822063Uh, very quickly before I go, technically yes. But just using it is already going to be a Willpower check. Putting your hands in front of your terrifying fire breath when you intend on unleashing it will not help with that.>>30822104It can help. Multiple successful uses can add up to a Phobia Test success. Of course, the opposite is true also. Mess up with it too much and I'll start knocking off PT successes.
>>30822104Christ, shut the fuck up.I voted for dragon breath because it's god damn awesome and fits the whole burning from the inside thing.
>>30822129Man if we didn't have plot armor, how else did we fail to drown trying to save the catatonic mutant from the slave ship.
>>30822104Nope, it was thoroughly discussed. Fire breath give JJ the chance to confront his fear (for slowly accumulated successes rather than a single epic event to overcome) whenever he uses the power or gets flustered and fails a will roll. JJ still can't light a match on his own, and he isn't fire proof.
>>30822164so it all depends on the DC's of the willpower checks and luckwe are going to die
>>30822169I agree with this anon here! God damned awesome!
>>30822120>>30822131It's just if you look at the last thread the only argument for draconic breath were "dragon fuck ya" and "it will help him with his fear"The second one is a fair point. I just want to know if it has basis in reality. I suppose if he wanted to "face his fear" all he would need to do wold be to find some matches and practice lighting them.
>>30822180Because the crate landed on solid land?It's not that hard to believe.
>>30822164>Taser hands answerOh I'm aware, just noticed that at lv. 1 we're just breathing highly flammable and mildly toxic fumes, not actual fire.

>>30822211>implying you can fail willpower so hard you die
>>30822231yup, and i doubt we will be leveling that up for some time.
>>30822249That shirt is barely a shirt
>>30822169>>30822215Here it is http://pastebin.com/JYrcDPPkPlease read the power set. then read this >>30819743.We can all agree level 1 draconic breath is fucking useless. Level 2 could come in handy. Since we don't have level 2 and wont for a long time I feel like we wasted an X. We could have bought something that would be useful right now not just something that might be useful sometime down the road.
>>30822249who said it was sonic people?
>>30822233anon you're supposed to read the archives before coming to live threads.there was no dice roll.
>>30822233There was no roll.
>>30822272It's painfully obvious these people>>30822169>>30822215didn't even read what the powers were. We can't even breath fire right now.
sonicfags confirmed for a shittier version of the phasebros
>>30822269That shirt is barely a skirt.
>>30822249I can't wait to burn that shirt off with our morning halitosis.
>>30822223Unbelievable is not required for it to be contrived, anon. It was a sinking ship and choice with no consequences or danger whatsoever.
>>30822299Did, felt it fit better thematically than the others, plus I'm an avid hater of scream powers.
>>30822301where is it being mentioned?
>>30822249I don't even want sonic scream. I voted to upgrade existing powers, then I voted to bank. Basically any power is more useful than pepper spray breath.
well why not eye powers though?
>>30822315We got a karma point an Crusty said he would have let us die there if we'd rolled poorly and let the kid die if we didn't crit. Personally, I choose to believe him on that.
>>30822315It wasn't even contrived.CJ said the ship was capsizing, towards land.If the threat of death was real, we would have rolled for it. We DID roll in like 10 prior situations, especially in combat with toad.Is this your first quest?
>>30822301>>30822249Can you say same fag?
>>30822339Heat blasts felt too Cyclops-y, and people didn't want Force blasts.
>>30822249it looks like she just walked out of the shower and decided to put on a white shirt
>>30822299It's more subtle than that anon.By voting for even a useless Level 1 power now, it locks out the possibility of a later thread, with a different anon majority, locking the character into having a different power.It's the same reasoning for why it's impossible to get people to bank X-points. Political voting.
>>30822339For me, they seem even less plausible than dragon breath, unless they were Primary Powers like with Cyke.
>>30822319>>30822301>>30822249Why do people keep blaming the sonic scream people? If you read the level one description basically any power is better than draconic breath.
>>30822339>>30822349I actually did want heat blasts but that shit wasn't an option as soon as everyone started spamming sonic scream and fire breath, so I voted for the less gay of the two, fire breath.
>>30822315>Breathing fire is more in theme than an electromag based power even though we already have two of those and plan to pick up at least one related extrapolative.Right...
>>30822359>impossible to get people to bank X-points.we bank our points all the time you
>>30822315Sometimes something is just a scene-ender. We'd brushed with death a lot in that thread. The final capsize was likely just an end scene.
>>30822249She has no nipples, must be a clone.
>>30822385no we don't it just seems all the ime since people who want to spend them get screamed at.
>>30822385It might be a bit harder now with all the shiny new toys, though.
If crusty called a re-vote right now on whether to keep the draconic breath. draconic breath breath would loose in a land slide. I am convinced that most of the people voting for it last thread thought it would let us breath fire on level 1.
>>30822361Because it's specifically them who were throwing a hissy fit when Drac breath was chosen.This may be surprising, but sometimes the players want to go with the option that may not be the most powerful or accurate; for a multitude of different reasons.That's the point of choice.
>>30822340> let us die there if we'd rolled poorly and let the kid die if we didn't critHuh? Nobody critted at all that thread (in rolls that were counted), let alone for that action.There wasn't even a roll at all for that action.>>29239585
>>30822377In our eyesNowhere have we encountered fucking screaming powers.And going on the trend of 'see it, be it', Drac breath is the closest correlation to Valeria we got.
>>30822411>WAH the vote didn't go my way last time so lets have a revote.
>>30822445actually scream powers are closest to the hellions earth quake guy,
>>30822361I'm still a proponent of >>30821096I can imagine Laura explaining to JJ the only way for him to keep his human form is to...
>>30822411Nope, we all knew what it did, we can read, we didn't give a shit.Get of your soapbox and fuck yourself.
>>30822274optic blast people knew we were out of the running real early and fire breath people won, why would they shitpost bashing the choice they backed?Sonicfags have the anal pain and their general lack of decent discourse before, during, and after the vote make them kinda obvious suspect.not everyone that voted Sonic scream was an asshole but a lot of vocal assholes spent time bashing fire and putting over sonic.(it could just be trolls kicking the gaping wound of powers debate though)>>30822406once the tier 2 stuff gets locked, we'll probably go back to saving for core powers.personally, I'd like agility 2>>30822411>"loose">pedantic drivel
>>30822457That is such a loose connection i'm not even going to argue against it.
>>30822445Crusty confirmed that we have encounted all members of the superior foes. Maybe one of them?
>>30822411>re-voteNo.I'm in the minority a lot here, but one thing I am against is retcons, not even if it were for undoing /tg/ decisions that were completely idiotic.That's a principle we shouldn't cross.
>>30822249>WHYProbably because of those bright lights shining in at 3 in the fucking morning. What the hell is going on out there, a JJ Abrams movie?!
>>30822497but we haven't met Dormammuyet
>>30822496Allow me to adequately rephrase - we take on powers of people close to us.Otherwise we would have been trying to copy Kimura or something earlier>>30822461EAT HER HAIR
I wanted optical force blasts but getting fire breath was questionable at the very least. Not only do we have a fire phobia that will make using it difficult but it's a pretty lethal power. At the very least we'll be putting people in a considerable amount of pain with really bad burns. JJ isn't a murder-hobo, is this going to be a dead ability most of the time? I hold out hope that it'll be useful, but it doesn't look good.
>>30822481I didn;t vote sonic but are you going to argue against the fact draconic breath level one is a fucking ussless power
>>30822481I still want my JJ sense, but with extrapolatives who knows when we'll get to the mainline.
>>30822542No one could argue against that.
>>30822481Hahah! He is technically right kind of. Soil is "loose" in a landslide.
>>30822540Basically fire breath is the most out of character power anyone can possibly think of. >>30822537>eat her hairI was thinking of something more saliva related.
>>30822555Well, could you argue that level one ANYTHING ELSE was less useful?
>>30822540Well it's pepper spray right now man.That's pretty non lethal.
>>30822344>CJ said the ship was capsizingIt wasn't established that it was actually 'towards land' all along until after making the choice to risk JJ's neck, was it?>If the threat of death was real, we would have rolled for it...yes? what's your point there
>>30822586the brain eating part of lv5 Genetic Memory says hi>>30822542oh, so one of my optic bros is just a sore loser
>>30822586The part where we're burning from the inside in a internal nuclear fire every once in a while made it a pretty damn reasonable power to get.
>>30822597Than please do.
Right after the last thread died someone in qtg posted testing two times in a row in under a minute. He basically got around the "you can't post duplicate reply" by using his computer and his phone. He was basically gloating about how he found out how to cheat crusty's voting system.
>>30822586I don't care for firebreath, but JJ doesn't get a choice in what X-Points are spent on.I'm normally against making choices that cripple or sacrifice ourselves, but this is admittedly some delicious drama potential, developing the worst possible power.
>>30822597Sure, level on heat eyes could double as a welding torch and was highly target specific if extremely lethal. Force beams could be used to deal a knockout blow while we remained cloaked. Sonic scream 1 wasn't particularly useful I admit.
>>30822602It wasn't a dangerous situation to begin with, at that point.An example of a dangerous situation was with the demon, where crackbitch rolling definitely would have gotten our ass in hell or something.That situation literally came down to one roll.
>>30822643>someone posted from two different IP addresses at the same timeNo.You don't say.
>>30822600That actually makes me want to keep it where its at, unless we can modulate it. If we can reliable use it as a very irritating spray than it can be useful, although that is really nerfing its potential. I'll take what I can get though.
>>30822643hes retarded then.SQ is rife with this bullshit from the start, but it looks like people from gtg who do it catched on.
>>30822643Who caresPeople samefag these regular votes all the time, it's easy to spot.I don't, because i'm not a fagmeister, but others do.
>>30822628so does burning from the inside = pepper spray breath?please read this >>30819743We are never going to upgrade draconic breath to the point were it is useful because we almost never upgrade existing powers. We are going to be stuck with pepper spray breath for the rest of this quest.
>>30822654Boom! High five!
>>30822663I can't think of a single situation were we would need use pepper spray since we already have taser.
>>30822677You're argument is based off of assumptive reasoning, which is very weak.You have no clue what's going to happen, because things change.Right now we're still surrounded by a lot of interesting pathways in the power department. It's only natural that we'd want to explore a good part of it before entrenching ourselves in one spot.And we have upgraded things that we like, invisibility being the most obvious.
>>30822677Heat motherfucker, honestly are you retarded?mutie points are increasing due to new chapter.
>>30822654Sonic didn't have the range limitation that fire has, but other than that it has a jab that is like a boxers.
>>30822700Somebody like Noriko is immune to energy.Wow, what a useful substance to use instead.Besides, now we can use them at the same time.
>>30822701>And we have upgraded things that we like,I think we should get a mobility power then just stop and start building up the ones we already have.We don't need two high-level powers, one mid-level power and then like fifty low-level ones.
>>30822655Yes, and making a choice whether to stay on a sinking ship not actually dangerous whatsoever is... well, cheap.The demon fight where the demon might have ended up possessing JJ like a Yeerk puppet was at least exciting, yeah.
>>30822700It's ranged anon, thats useful since we won't have to actually touch them. It could actually really help with invisible attacking if we blind them. I still wouldn't have chosen it but it doesn't seem to be completely useless.
>>30822654>Sonic scream 1 wasn't particularly useful I admitIf you only look at level one powers sonic scream would have been the most useful against Kimura. We could have easily fucked up her ear drum.
>>30822741It's not. Despite your fixity, it's not.CJ has awarded heroics, and we already were in dangerous spots with Cuda and Toad, as said before. He decided we had enough.Hell, Laura could have been pulverized in that recent battle very easily.
>>30822754I rather blind he with hot gases to the eyes.
>>30822746It has the range of an actual bottle of pepper spray. Meaning by the time we are close enough to use it Barracuda has our head hanging from the gold chain he has around his neck.
>>30822779that can withstand alot of damage, so i doubt that would do much.Crusty said fire was lethal AOE, while sonic was armour piercing that can be both lethal and non-lethal.
>>30822793thread 6, JJ jammed his thumb into Kimura's eye and got her to recoil.
>>30822818Laura confirmed that her eyes are just as strong as the rest of her body.
>>30822793>sonic was armour piercing that can be both lethal and non-lethal.This is why it would have been a better choice the only think the firs fags are standing on is "screaming is gay" and "dragon fuck ya"
>>30822833she also said Kimi was sensitive there
>>30822793Her eyes are a sensitive area, affording temporary distraction.>>30822833Yes, but still sensitive, the gases would force her to cover her own eyes.
>>30822834The thing that pisses me off most about that vote was.>"screaming is gay" and "dragon fuck ya"This is literally the only reason fire won.
>>30822773It's not really heroics if it's 100% risk-free.The kid would even have survived no matter what JJ did.
>>30822869same, i would had been content with a real argument from their side, but when ever asked it was that same form of response each time.
>>30822869And yet, it was all that was needed.That and I cannot think of a thematic reason to go with screaming.
>>30822852You guys are fighting over nothing. Draconic breath and sonic scream would have been equally effective against Kimura. The only problem is that draconic breath has the same rage as a can of mace.
>>30822869Yeah, but let's take that shitty decision making and turn it into something good.>>30822903>That and I cannot think of a thematic reason to go with screaming.JJ wants to be in a heavy metal band.
>>30822903explain wings/photosynthesis/Bioarmor weave?
>>30822903because a mutie wants to be HEARD, mannnn
>>30822869I was originally optic force blast all the way, but in crunch time I went with fire breath for 2 reasons1.) a fire breathing pyrophobic is funny to me2.) sonic guys arguments were mostly just posts like>>30822869
>>30822903I stand by my statement that most of the people voting for draconic breath thought that they would breath fire from level 1.>thematic reason to go with screamingScreaming is the only raged power that didn't give away our location while invisible.
>>30822923wings+ armor = two built in shieldswings+ photosynthesis= two built in solar panels
>>30822923Rule of Cool
>>30822933lizard=!wingsI give you the weave though.
>>30822913Actually, the scream would totally be way more effective later. Draconic Breach deals surface area damage, whereas the Scream is explicitly capable of targeting specific areas inside of a target. Kimura's reinforcement skin-deep. And, before you shout 'sonicfag', I didn't vote that time.
>>30822955photosynthesis has never been cool anon.practical. conservative. but not cool.
>>30822966your still a sonic fag.
>>30822948I stand by the point that not a single god damn person thought that, because we're literate.>>30822953There are gliding lizards, shit we already have opposable thumbs, why not some extra limbs.Fine, birds, dinosaurs are birdlizards.
>>30822936draconic breath won the vote and we still can't breath fire.if you want argument for it>>30822793>Crusty said fire was lethal AOE, while sonic was armour piercing that can be both lethal and non-lethal.>>30822948>Screaming is the only raged power that didn't give away our location while invisible.
>>30822980>photosynthesis has never been cool anon.Plantman! Fighter of the Bugman
>>30822966Heat would still effect her insides, just gotta bathe her in it for a few seconds.
>>30822988>dinosaurs are birdlizardsdinosaurs actually had feathers, not lizard skin.
>>30822936I was the same way! Expect you know, sonic. It's just too Bad about those optic blasts.
>>30822948>Screaming is the only raged power that didn't give away our location while invisible.I want you to think about that for a few seconds, and why that's retarded.
>>30823003Not really she can stop that with her skin.
>>30823023Read the powers description.
>>30823023Its invisible, and if we use it while invisible we can still stay hidden, plus it had a lot of nice extra bonus mutations.
>>30823030She is barely resistant to energy based attacks, heat will get through just as well as electricity and any other non physical attacks.>>30823044Screaming is inherently non stealthy, anyone hit by it would have about the same potential to find us as they would seeing through a burning cloud of ash.ie, none.
>>30822996and yet I only see that brought up days after the vote.enhanced senses and invisibility were kinda shit at lv1 too. just have to drop some x points, assuming some anons aren't anal pained enough to vote other choices purely out of spite ( and I saw anons threaten to "then I guess we're not getting wings")>>30823017>they didn't want push/pull bending laserstheir loss. we'll just have to accept that sad fact, force bro
>>30823023Say we are invisible and standing a few meters away from barracuda. He knows we're out there and he knows we're invisible.A)We shoot a fire ball at him. he sees the fire ball coming a where it came from then shoots at where it came from.B)We use sonic scream. He doesn't see it because you can't see sound. He gets hit but has no idea where it came from because... you guessed to. you can't see sound.
>>30823003Not really, Laura blew up a building with her hand cuffed next to a cut gas line. After the handcuffs finally melted Kimura walked away from the scene.
>>30823023It "causes sudden and acute irritation to nearby listeners," maybe they mean that it's supersonic and above conscious human hearing?
>>30823090>He gets hit but has no idea where it came from because... you guessed to. you can't see sound.BUt you can hear where it came from.
>>30823090Directional hearing is a thing anon, it's why you know what direction a sound is coming from.
>>30823090or JJ could have bended his optic force blast and made Barracuda think he got hit from another direction.the best choice didn't even make it to the finals
>>30823075Oh, we're getting wings. My personally revenge is going to be to suggest using our breath for every applicable situation just to see how often it gets voted down for being needlessly flashy and too likely to cause massive collateral damage. I think that'll be amusing.
>>30823090>he sees the fire ball coming a where it came from then shoots at where it came from.YOu'd think he'd be more occupied with "OH SHIT FIREBALL! DUCK AND COVER, NIGGA!"
>>30823164But now that you said that, everyone will think every suggestion to use firebreath is you trolling......or was that your plan along?
>>30823170its the cudda what do you think.
>>30823149Too bad we don't have redirecting force beams so we can hit him from a 90degree angle from our line of sight...
>>30823164>Oh, we're getting wings.Much more useful than Particulate Cloud Form, especially at level one.> My personally revenge is going to be to suggest using our breath for every applicable situationDon't be petty, anon. Don't make this quest any more toxic.
>>30823164Do you go around screaming about the seahawks in every inappropriate situation now?
>>30823179I actually don't care. I wanted something useful, but I'm going to find "burn everything in my path" hilarious for a stealth build. To bad we did pick phasing, waking through the infernos we'll create would be bad ass.
>>30823149>>30823157Here's an experiment. Blind fold your self, spin around a few times and have some a few meters away say something. Then shoot them with a nurf gun. Sound isn't as accurate as eyes. Our scram would have been loud enough to damage his hearing. Directional hearing doesn't work so well when you can't hear.
>>30823164>mfw it gets voted forwhen being cancerous goes wrong
>>30823239i still win.
>>30823215Not really, I happily watch Manning blow his chance at immortality.
>>30823237Correct, but when your eyes are enveloped by a cloud of hot ash, seeing is about as reliable as whipping your dick out and using it as a dowsing rod.
>>30823258>i still win.Don't be cancerous, GreenEggs.
>>30823230>"burn everything in my path"What part of WE CAN'T ACTUALLY BREATH FIRE. do you not understand. If we have two x-points and people vote on whether to vote of agility or fire which one do you think is going to win.
>>30823239See >>30823230.I win in every scenario.
>>30823170He'll dodge and make note of the source anyway.He, the Punisher, and Batman will pretty much always come out fine, no matter what superpower are at play.>>30823239Some anons just want to watch the world burn.
>>30823262I don't like american foot ball, but i heard he did amazing and brake a lot of records, but his team sucked ass.
>>30823280Cudda has done that,
>>30823294>He, the Punisher, and Batman will pretty much always come out fine, no matter what superpower are at play.Barracuda died, you know. Punisher killed him.And Barracuda is just a human.
>>30823295I could break a record too if I only threw 5 yards at a time.
>>30823292"Yet"Plus we just need a spark. Taser hands perhaps?
>>30823258>>30823293That's pokemon quest level toxic right there.>>30823295defense was mediocre and the offense was largely one dimensional
>>30823280Our breath extends what? 10 ft? In think he might see us dude.
>>30823075Wait. If you didn't particularly like either of the two powers that were winning, and came to the decision that voting for what you actually wanted was pointless - why yes, the whole concept of tactical voting does annoy me - why didn't you vote to bank rather than bandwagon and avoid the shitstorm altogether?>>30823230Wouldn't work. Phasing's weak to energy. Particularly light.
>>30823336Pokemon Quest? you don't mean AoPH do you.man i wish that one didn't have such shitty writing.
>>30823326>Plus we just need a spark.Not really. The breath ignites flammable gasses. I don't think we'd need a spark.>>30823350He'd see the fire in his face first, I'd think.
>>30823350We're invisible when it goes off, he'll see a lot of stuff before his eyes are cooked through like delicious eggs.
>>30823215SEAHAWKS #12TH MAN!
>>30823164Solidarity brother! I will join your cause!
>>30823390>>30823376this is cuda, the man that had Luara on her ropes.
>>30823438She can beat him.
>>30823438Mostly because he had fucking nightvision goggles.
>>30823311Cuda survived and got his own mini series.http://www.mediafire.com/download/su059unadvnndl9/Barracuda+Mini-Series+%282007%29.rar>>30823363banking didn't stand a chance either. even if I did, it would have gone 9-7-7 I think>>30823366no the one with the lesbians and the shitstorm every 5 mins (didn't happen in the last thread oddly enough)>>30823376see>>30822063and >>30822164>>30823423just kill yourself instead
>>30823451eventually, but she admitted that one wrong move and she would have been screwed.in both senses of the word.>>30823453You expect the non-super powered humans to play fair?
>>30823456>just kill yourself insteadDon't add to the cancer.
>>30823286>JJ "i hope this next diceroll fails because i lost a previous, unrelated vote" GreenEggsAndSlamthat was one crazy thread. I don't think it's him though.
>>30823456You're only escalating it, stop.
>>30823479if only sub routine and fluff provider left AI quest.its getting worse we are gaining more tips fags
I'm far more interested in the utility powers atmreally want photosynthetic and animal affinity
>>30823423>>30823164qtg pls leave
>>30823606I'm for Photosynthetic and either Animal Affinity or Electrostatic Cloud (my personal choice).I just really don't see us using Genetic Mimicry all that much especially when we sort of have it already self-imposed on us.And while I find Animal Affinity kind of boring, I can see it being used well.
>>30823657>qtgI take offense at that. Those thread are just toxic.Besides why are you complaining? I'm just supporting the victors in that debate, right?
>>30823669>Gen Mim BAD!So you wouldn't use it on JT when we finally kill him?
>>30823669you do realize Genetic Mimicry level 1 would allow JJ to look human right? No more having to hide all the time. He would be able to walk around in normal society.All he needs to do is re-new it every now and then. Laura would probably be OK with providing the necessary saliva.
>>30823728I really don't see why we should get the power or level it up, especially since Level 5 requires JJ to eat brains.>>30823718>So you wouldn't use it on JT when we finally kill him?I don't see what the point is.
>>30823695You know Crusty auto vetos anything deemed too OOC, right? that big drug dealer hunt shitstorm caused it.and QTG pulls the same shit. they trolled the shit out of PGQ for ages till they got bored. your current behavior makes you no better.>>30823669Photosynthetic and Animal Affinity just combo so well and if we put in the points, we'll never have to worry about food for JJ or the group ever again.>>30823718>>30823728JJ blends in well enough with hood and shades bit.
>>30823786>Photosynthetic and Animal Affinity just combo so wellAdmittedly, I do like the idea of Plant/Animal/Insect mimicry, but those are really the only things I like about having Genetic Mimicry. The rest seems kinda shit, especially after having been a part of Hollow Quest Redux for a while (I can't remember where I stopped, but it was after Moon and before Plot Rock).
>>30823836you missed out on the Jager shitstormit was painful.
>>30823761level 5. are fucking kidding me. Do you realize how many powers we have? Do you honestly think we would ever get to level five? Not counting our core powers we've upgraded two of them. The rest are level one and won't reach level 5... well... ever.I'm saying we only get level one and that's it. Then we can focus our X-points on upgrading other powers.
>>30823867>you missed out on the Jager shitstormI heard about it.Really seems like something I might drop.>>30823873I say we should just hunker down and upgrade existing powers now, but save an X-Point or two for any sudden power needs like Winged Flight or Photosynthetic Body.
>>30823902AE has it on hiatus actually>>30823873>locking out animal affinity or photosynthetic just so JJ can go outside not wearing shades or the hood.not feeling it dawg. if we end up healing, popping the claws, zapping some fool, burping fire etc then its back to square one.
>>30823873Or just not get it. At all.We have two utilty slots to fill. We don't have to fill them, though. And Crusty may or may not develop other powers in that grouping.Rather than grab everything we kind of want, why not bank until we can get what we really want?
>>30823873naw, we can at least get it to level 3.imagine the stealth missions.maybe level 5 for the happy ending of impersonating a dead rich guy.
>>30824166JJ is too awkward to masquerade as a normal person.And I'd rather not eat the dead rich guy's brains.
