Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible. There are occasional roles to keep things organic, but mostly it goes by voters choice. Unless specified otherwise, the best of 3 rolls is the result, and rolling high is good. Write-ins for all votes or always welcome and encouraged. Put your own spin on it, suggest dialogue, add an addendum, or anything else. Just because some options specify to write in, doesn't mean that they aren't welcome for anything else. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in. Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as it comes up.

“Vance, is it cool if we swing by the Pokemon center first?”Vance looks at you. “Huh? Yeah, of course. I’ll show you the way.”The four of you head to the Pokemon center. Vance shows you a shortcut that saves some time. Even then, you end up having to take a small diversion since the path he remembers is now partially fenced off. “This city is always changing so fast,” he says. The Pokemon center looks distinctly modern and sleek, but the furniture inside is fine woodwork. The nurse tells you it’ll only be half an hour.Everything here, from beds to showers to meals, cost a very small amount. “Don’t worry about that,” Vance says. He must have seen you looking. “We’re all staying at my parents place. You’ll love it.”>Call up Professor Fir, keep rotating Pokemon>Call up Professor Fir, trade out two specific Pokemon (Will trigger new vote for which ones)>You’re good with your current party for now>Something else

>>30854592>Call up Professor Fir, keep rotating PokemonPlease, no more specific stuff unless we're about to enter a gym and need someone for it.

>>30854614Women are a tricky breed, so who the hell knows.
>>30854592>Call up Professor Fir, keep rotating Pokemonwe an dwell on specifics before challenging a gym if needed.
>>30854628You're a good man, Gobble. Just waiting for her to get ready now.
Psychic Gym right?keep DevonTrunks (get some training maybe look up stuff about it in dex)Levia (bite)
>>30854914Pretty sure this one's a Fighting gym. Just because Vance's sister is a Psychic gym leader doesn't mean she's the gym leader of Braundalin.
You take out Trunks and Raistlin and explain that they'll be staying with Professor Fir for awhile. Raistlin almost reacts, but Trunks clings tightly to you."It's alright Trunks. You're not in trouble, and I'll get you back. I know you're scared, but it's only fair to everybody. The Professor is a very nice man and you won't be alone, so please be on your best behavior." You calm him down a bit and he accepts. He's eager to make you proud.You sit down at the PC. "Well hello there!" Professor Fir's face greets you on the PC. You and he chat a little bit before getting down the business. "So who am I going to be seeing today?"You think on it a minute. "I want to give my Pokemon equal time. If it's alright, can I have Vlad and Zappy Dan back?"He sends them back, and you send him Trunks and Raistlin."I think your Magnemite is close to evolving. I thought it might happen here at the lab, but he didn't really do anything to trigger it. Your Golbat got plenty of exercise though. Truth be told, I had trouble keeping him on lab property. I'm not sure what he got up to, but no matter what I did he found a way out."As he says that, you let Vlad and Dan out of their Pokeballs and give them a hug. You really missed these guys. Robin takes your place at the PC to exchange her Pokemon too. She exchanges her Houndour and gets her Geodude back.You hope Vlad didn't get up to anything bad.>Scold Vlad for getting out of the lab all the time>What the hell Professor? Keep a closer eye on them!>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like you>Something elseCurrent Party:Devon (Houndour)Destiny (Horsea)Vlad (Golbat)Zappy Dan (Magnemite)Leviathan (Gyarados)Nibbles (Tyrunt)
>>30854933>Scold VladHe may be a rebel like us, but it made our lives hard and we don't need that for our Pokemon.
>>30854933>>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like you>>30854932fighting eh?vladleviauhh.....
>>30854933>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like you>Tell him it is fine to be a bit mischevious but you hope he didn't do anyone any harm.
>>30854933>>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like you
It's a dual gym. Fighting and Dark. It'll be a double battle
>>30854933>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like you
>>30855012so Levia and Vlad are the safest choices
>>30854933we rebels, dawg
>>30854933>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like youFighting/dark is decent coverage, our third should probably be Destiny, only one without a weakness to one or the other. Water overlaps, but Outrage is pretty great.
>>30854933>You're just glad to see him. He's a rebel, like youAtta boy!
>>30855012I'm half expecting them to be Vance's parents
>>30854933Guys. If we praise Golbat he'll love us and evolve.
"Vlad, you really should be doing anything bad while you're with the Professor. I can understand-" You can't continue. He keeps licking your face more and more aggressively. You just give him a big hug. Even Zappy Dan gets in on it. "I'm just so glad to see you Vlad. Wow, you're feeling stronger. Maybe you were working out?" Vlad just continues drenching you in his slobber. You'd feel like a hypocrite if you gave him a big lecture. He just doesn't like being cooped up. You know the feeling. You just hold him and show affection right back."Dan, I heard you were close to evolving. Aren't you excited" He doesn't seem to really care about that, but he does nuzzle into you. Compared to how Raistlin reacts, he's practically exploding in emotion.Jeanine stands there impatiently. “Are we visiting Vance's parents, or was there something else you wanted to do?"Vance shoots her a dirty look. To her credit she does look sorry for her attitude. Vance puts in his two cents. "Really though. I don't mind delaying a bit if there's something anyone wants to do first. Visits to my parents are big productions, so it's a good idea to do anything now.">To Vance's parents!>Go shopping first>You can't wait! You're going to the gym right now to get your badge>Something else
>>30855263>>To Vance's parents!I wonder if they'd be interested in some Financial adventures?
>>30855263>To Vance's parents!
>>30855263>To Vance's parents!Why not? Let's go!
>>30855263Bring gifts, then to Vance's parents.Looks like I'm here for the thread after all, my people of Moorish descent!
>>30855263>>To Vance's parents!Onward!
>>30855263>Go shopping first>>30855297>Bring giftsSounds like a plan here.
>>30855263>To Vance's parents!Jeanine is really asking for it. I might start sabotaging her relationship with Vance just to spite her.
>>30855453>Seduce Vance into a threesome with Robin>Gloat at Jeanine>"I get all the bitches."
>>30855482If we get all the bitches, shouldn't we be all over Jeanine's tits?
>>30855570she's not a bitch, she;s a cunt
>>30855482But there's not an H&R Block to be seen. What's the point of a three-way, then?
>>30855482>>30855570>Hey, Vance is a really cool dude. We should consider->EWWW, NO>NO THREESOMES>DISGUSTING>MAH MONOGAMY GUHLFIREND>This female hates our guts.>We must motorboat her>Time to give her the V; that will fix herI've been noticing this a little and it's hilarious.
>>30855648>H&R BlockWhat do tax returns have to do with threesomes?
>>30855672I might have been mistaken. I thought they did some investment work too. You'd prefer Edward Jones then? Merrill Lynch?
>>30855667The thing is that's one guy posing a rhetorical question, no-one actually thinks people want to fuck Jeanine.
>>30855667Some corrective rape has never hurt anyone.
>>30855697Wait, you need other people to handle your money for you?
>>30855799>Implying I have money
>>30855799School doesn't exactly tell you how to manage money.
“Just one quick thing!” You want to bring gifts. You figure it’s a good idea to make a nice impression. You grab some of the candles you won at the festival and pick up some fresh fruits along the way. Robin buys a small basket and helps you wrap it nicely. You’re glad she’s there, because you’re no good with making fancy looking presentations like that.Jeanine looks around for something to get too, but is having trouble deciding. Vance puts his hand on her shoulder. “Relax. They’ll just be glad to see you.”Vance and Jeanine lead you to a large, warehouse-sized building with big open windows and people coming in and out with their Pokemon. That must be the fitness center his parents own. You remember how he specified that it’s not a Pokemon gym where you earn a badge, just a place where people and Pokemon can work out. There’s a small house just next door that Vance takes the group to.Vance turns back to face you and Robin. "Look, before we meet my parents, I should warn you two, they can get a little touchy-feely.” Jeanine nods. She’s seen them before.A man comes flying out the door. "Vance! My boy! Come here!" He gives Vance a big hug. "Welcome! Welcome! Please come on in! All of you, right this way." Vance's father is a smaller man, just a little taller than yourself. His bald head and mustache are a contrast to Vance's smooth face and thick hair.A plump, fussy woman comes running around the corner. "Vance! My baby! Come here." She hugs him and kisses him on each cheek repeatedly. "Have you been eating enough?""Mooom!" Vance returns the hug briefly but tries to break it off."Oh, alright," she gives him one last kiss. "I don't want to embarrass you. I just worry about my baby boy."
>>30855862You hold the gift basket tightly behind your back, waiting for the right moment.Vance's dad puts his hand on his shoulder. "Boy schmoy. Our Vance is growing into a fine, strapping young man." He turns to you and Robin. "Where are my manners? I'm Giorgio, and this is my wife, Lorraine."Vance looks like he's trying to say something, but his dad cuts him off. "Now which one of these beautiful young ladies is your girlfriend, hmm?” Vance looks mortified. Even though he's standing behind his parents, Vance towers over them. You can clearly see the panic in his eyes. His parents look between you, Jeanine, and Robin, waiting for an answer. >We’re all friends of Vance>Jeanine is, push her forward>Say nothing>Something else
>>30855862That's a nice family.I found just the thing to spite Jeanine. Subtly let them know we are an orphan. They are sure to act all parently(?) to us, like we are their daughter.
>>30855920>We’re all friends of VanceNo need to comment on the girlfriend thing really.
>>30855920>>Say nothingJust watch the choas
>>30855920>>Jeanine is, push her forward
>>30855920>Push Jeanine forwardMwahaha.
>>30855920"We all are."
>>30855920>Jeanine is, push her forward
>Putting Vance in a difficult positionWhat are you doing guys?
>>30855920>We’re all friends of Vance
>>30855920 >We’re all friends of Vance
>>30855976I LIKE IT!
>>30855920>>Say nothingJust enjoy the moment.
>>30855976I like it. Its technically true too!
>>30855976This please.>pushing Jeanine.ugh...No. God no....
Gobble i blame you for putting push Jeanine option there. And everyone just jumped for it too. Whats wrong with you people?
>>30855976>>30855920I agree with this, although we should try to make it sound innocent like we misunderstood the question.While pushing Janine forward is a nice Idea in theory, it might cause Vance to vehemently deny it, which would hurt Janine.
>>30855976Changing my vote to this.
>>30856117We don't really care for Jeanine, and it's fun as fuck to tease Vance?
>>30855976we push the Jeanine forwardshe/vance vehemently deny itwe say "just kidding. Jeanine isn't Vance's girlfriend, we all are."
>>30856166That's even worse!!!
>>30856187don't you mean "even better!"
>>30856166Comedy is all about timing. The second part loses its shock value / humor if it follows another joke, it just becomes really awkward.
>>30856217No, I literally mean worse, because someone is gonna get hurt, because either one of them denying it is going to make the other assume things.
>>30855976Why is everyone voting for this...
>>30856273>...periods are for girls, stop that
>>30856273because it doesn't put a single person in the spotlight, won't cause any hurt feelings, and is funny.
>>30856273Because Nadeko is the cutest Monogatari.
>>30856308except Vance, but that shit is bananas.
>>30856352No, Vance is currently in the spotlight because his parents asked him who was his girlfriend. with this answer, we are taking the spotlight off him and making everyone laugh, because I highly doubt his parents will take it seriously.
>>30855667Okay, I was gone for a while, but did you really take >>30855570 at face value?See, >>30855611 got it. Why can't you be more like >>30855611, anon?
>>30856419I've seen similar posts frequent enough to make that observation.
>>30856273>>30856251because we're not all worry warts that make mountains out of mole hills.
You push Jeanine forward before anyone can react.“Jeanine? Is that you? I’m so sorry I didn’t recognize you at first. You’ve grown!” Vance’s dad looks her up and down, stopping at her impressive chest for just an extra millisecond. You don’t even think he’s being pervy, it’s just something you notice when looking at her. Maybe you’re a teensy bit envious. Robin must feel that way about pretty much everyone. “And now you’re both dating? That’s wonderful.”“That’s not really true.” She meekly corrects. She’s finally blushing, if just a little. Vance starts to stutter something, but gets cut off.“Well why not? You two were inseparable as kids.” His dad doesn’t realize how awkward this is. He reads women about as well as Vance does.“Dear!” His mother interrupts. “Why don’t you introduce us these other lovely young ladies.”Robin greets them respectfully, then it comes to you. “She’s right. It’s not technically true. We’re all his girlfriends.”Giorgio laughs and pats his son on the back. Vance is completely speechless. “Left to improve your ‘martial arts’, huh?” He jabs Vance with his elbows.(continued)
>>30856565His mom looks shocked for a second, but then smiles. “Well… you’re umm.. all certainly umm, welcome to stay for as long as you’d like. Thank you for taking care of my Vance. I always said he’d be beating them off with a stick.” She laughs. “I don’t care what you kids are into these days. Just be safe.”Vance looks like he wants to use Minimize until he disappears. He’s again trying to stutter something, but can’t get anything out. You decide to lay off. “We’re all girls and we’re all friends of Vance. What’d you think I meant?” You put on an innocent face and look up at them.Vance’s parents both pause and look at each other, then at Vance, and laugh hysterically.His dad opens the door. “Come on in and see the house, girls-who-are-friends-of-Vance.”Vance’s mom accepts your gift basket. “Oh dear, you really didn’t have to. Thank you.” She smiles warmly. They seem like easy going people.Vance let’s out his Machop, who greets his parents and then starts running around the house. You look around as they show you around. There are trophies, framed newspaper clippings, and awards all over. There’s a corner piece where you finally see something that belongs to Vance. It’s a participation ribbon for a martial arts tournament. You would have expect first place for sure.“And here’s where you’ll be staying.” Giorgio opens up a large room. It’s got a bunkbed and a large queen sized bed in the corner. “It’s our guest room. I know it’s not much, but I hope you’ll be comfy.”Compared to what you’re used to, it’s amazing. Fancy hotels are one thing, but to imagine that people just own rooms this size for guests? A small pang a jealousy comes over you.Vance pops his head in. “Want a tour of the fitness center?”>Unpack, go on the tour>Unpack, stay behind and chat with Vance’s parents>You and Robin can find a hotel. You don’t want to be any trouble>Something else
>>30856628>>Unpack, go on the tour>so many fucking worrywartsglad none of them are QMs
>>30856628>Vance looks like he wants to use Minimize until he disappears.
>>30856628>Unpack, go on the tour
>>30856628>>Unpack, stay behind and chat with Vance’s parentsThese two are gold.
>>30856628>they still think their son has an haremThis is gonna get real funny real fast.
>>30856628>>Unpack, go on the tourWe can embarrass Vance in front of his parents over dinner.
>>30856628>Unpack, go on the tourSounds fine by me!
>>30856745whats you're problem that

>>30856811they never read the email field.

>>30856628Deposit goods. Tour fitness center.
Vance waits for everyone to put down their stuff and stretch out before leading you to the fitness center next door. “Be back in time for dinner!” His mom shouts as you leave. “Be safe with your girlfriends!”“Moooom!” Vance looks at you. “I’ll get you for this.” From his tone you know it’s a friendly threat. Jeanine is behind him, giving you an appraising look, like she’s trying to decide something.It’s a massive, two story building. The thing that gets you is how strange some of the machines look.“That one can be used for large Pokemon like Onix. This one over here is for Electric types. They can unload at full power and it won’t get damaged. Oh! This one is great, it has these little targets to help improve aim. Don’t worry, those things are virtually indestructible.Robin runs up to a station. “What’s this one?”Vance looks at her. “It’s a leg press.”It’s strange to see something Robin doesn’t know. Jeanine seems to be pretty familiar with the gym. She looks around like she’s trying to decide what to use.“You’re all welcome to use whatever you want. Just remember to wipe it down after.” Vance’s Machop must’ve run in, because it’s already pumping iron behind him. Robin starts letting her Pokemon out and giving them instructions at each station. Jeanine heads off to the change room.>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work out>Just let your Pokemon out and supervise them evenly>Just let your Pokemon out and train one specifically (Specify)>Something else>>30857199What happened with the lady friend?
>>30857353I honestly haven't the foggiest. Fickle lot, the female animal.
>>30857353>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work out
>>30857353>Just let your Pokemon out and supervise them evenly
>>30857353>Just let your Pokemon out and supervise them evenlyWorking out is all well and good, but we need our 'mons in tip top shape.
>>30857353>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work outLet's do this!
>>30857353>Just let your Pokemon out and train one specificallyGive Vlad and Dan some love.They have been away. We will definitely use Vlad in the next gym battle. Dan is close to evolving and this work out may aswell trigger it.
>>30857475Sounds good. we could do a spot of training with them....
>>30857353>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work out>Just let your Pokemon out and supervise them evenlya-are we /fit/ now? we should hit the squat rack, great for the glutes
>>30857353>Let the Pokemon work out with minimal supervision>Work out a bit yourself
>>30857353>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work outClearly we should give Robin a show when we see her paying attention.
>>30857353>Just let your Pokemon out and supervise them evenlyVlad and Zappy Dan could do with some extra attention still though.
>>30857353>Go change too, you’ll let your Pokemon do their own thing and work outLead by example
>>30857353>Just let your Pokemon out and train one specifically (Vlad)
You run to the changing room quickly. You'll mostly be supervising your Pokemon, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared. You change into your older travel clothes. Your shirt is a little embarrassing though."Here." A white tank top lands in your arms. You look up and see Jeanine looking back at you. "I get it. What you did back with his parents."You're not sure where this is going. "You do?""Yes. I was rude to you at the Pokemon center, even though you've been making an effort with me. You put me on the spot with his parents to get me back." You give her a quizzical look. "I deserved that. I don't want to cause any more issues between us. Especially if we'll be traveling together." She helps you up. "It might be a little loose in some spots, but it should fit."So her tank top is a peace offering.>Thank her, put it on>She just realized you could destroy her chance with Vance if you wanted. Decline>It's a start. Accept, but make sure she understands you won't deal with any more of her crap>Something else
>>30857905>Thank her, put it onLet's bury the hatchet here.
>>30857905"I actually did it to see how his parents would react. Seems they approve of you."

>>30857973This. We tease. It's how we show affection
>>30857905>Thank her, put it on"I was just trying to increase your chances"
>>30857973thiswe honestly weren't being vindictive, so it probably won't stop. But we wren't going to do anything to be mean to her
>>30857905>decline the tanktopits not that i want to decline her peace offering, its just that i dont want her baggy tanktop.
>>30858117>>30857973these. decline the tanktop and say this>Point out that we do stuff like that revenge or not, shits funny

>>30858146The fuck is all that shit about going on the warpath?We just do shit like that to see what happens, and in this case pushing her forward also happened to be a genuine answer.
>>30858146>being this autistic
>>30857973secondingalso voting against vindictiveness, that totally wasn't why we said what we did
>>30858286Not that guy, but >>30858146 pretty clearly missed all of the relevant social cues in the present situation.
>>30858247>>30858225Kat doesn't play nice and Jeanine has consistently been a bitch.
>>30858478oh i have no problem with fucking over that cunt if she keeps the attitude. i am all for it even. that has nothing to do with (>>30858146)'s autism however.
>>30857905 >Thank her, put it onJesus Christ people. It's a peace offering
>>30858478I will redirect you >>30858225>We just do shit like that to see what happens, and in this case pushing her forward also happened to be a genuine answer.The reason Jeanine is trying to "bury the hatchet" is because she hasn't realized that Kat's hatchet is already in the ground.
You put it on. It mostly fits, but like she said, it's loose in some areas. It'll do though."Thanks. Don't take what I did too personally. I do stuff like that. It's just who I am."She puts her hands on her hips and actually smiles at you for once. "I'm starting to see that."You look her in the eyes. "If I was really trying to ruin things for you, it'd be a lot worse." It's mostly a joke. Mostly. "Plus it was a good test to see if his parents approve of you. I think they like you."Jeanine gives you a sarcastic smirk. "Uh huh." You both exit the change room, but before you do, he finally shows a little vulnerability. "You think so?"You smile back. Vance doesn't really get hints when people hit on him. He'll be thinking about her as a potential girlfriend now. You've probably planted the seed.You let out all of your Pokemon at various stations. They all get to work on the machines with a little instruction. You start working out on one of the machines, then another. You're really feeling the burn. The tank top is a bit airy, letting in a cool breeze.Jeanine is getting Vance to help her stretch. Oh look, she fell into him. Real subtle.You glance around to see how your Pokemon are doing. They don't seem to be having any particular difficulties. Even Levi is doing fine on her machine.

>>30858942>"Lookin' REAL good..."
>>30858942>>30859037These words, if nothing else.
I am back from dinner with friends!I feel bad for missing so much of the quest, but since I just ate enough food to feed a hundred starving Africans I don't really think it's that bad.
>>30859218So, a Happy Meal?
>>30859295Took me a few minutes to get that.
You pump hard at each station. You do your best to use the machines near each Pokemon to give a good example. It seems to encourage them. In spend extra time with Vlad and Dan. Dan actually pushes himself hard when you start encouraging him from the machine next to him.Your Pokemon are all looking tired but content. Pokemon work differently from people, they seem to get a lot more out of small sessions like this. You feel like it made a difference with them.You head over to Robin. It’s a good long moment before she notices you. You stare at her behind. “Looking real good.” She stops what she’s doing and turns around. “T-thanks. Y-you too!”You show off your arm. “Like it?” The muscles are showing a little extra right now. You know that’s just because they’re strained, and not a long term thing. Yet.“Wow.” She feels your arm. “I could get used to this.” She’s surprisingly forward today. “Nice tank top. Did Jeanine lend it to you?”You explain your exchange with her. Robin smiles. “I’m glad. I want everyone to get along.”Everyone is looking like they’re done here. Vance comes running up and gives you a keycard. “It’s for the showers.” You smile wickedly.You, Jeanine, and Robin head to the showers. “Meet me at my place when you guys are done. Dinner should be on soon.”There are a few different sections. Jeanine follows with you. She doesn’t seem to have any hang ups about her body, because she strips and starts showering immediately. You can’t blame her, looking like that.The three of you are mostly alone in this section. Robin looks shy. She’s stalling to take off her clothes. She looks intimidated by Jeanine.>Free home cooked dinner! Shower and lets go!>Encourage Robin to shower now. She’ll need to get used to Jeanine>Start up a conversation, try to be friendly with Jeanine and lighten the atmosphere (write-ins encouraged)>Something else
>>30859366Strip Robin and shanghai her into the showers.Recruit Jeanine if need be. Bonding via molestation.
>>30859366>Encourage Robin to shower now. She’ll need to get used to Jeanine
>>30859366>>Start up a conversation, try to be friendly with Jeanine and lighten the atmosphere (write-ins encouraged)Alright Jeanine time to measure up, bust to bust
>>30859366I need to make a wicked smile/evil grin counter
>>30859366>Start up a conversation, try to be friendly with Jeanine and lighten the atmosphereAsk her what her other hobbies besides the whole aura reading are.
>>30859452This is good, I like this.
>>30859366>Start up a conversation, try to be friendly with Jeanine and lighten the atmosphere (write-ins encouraged)"So, what's your secret? Robin and I want to know."
>>30859452> "So, other than reading auras and ogle Vance, what else do you usually fill your days with?"
>>30859507>>30859366This is too good not to use.
>>30859507>>30859452What if we both?
>>30859694Por que no los dos?
>>30859817>>30859792Meant to quote you
>>30859837Well thank you.
>>30859366Gobble is kill
[Sorry, here. Just had a quick phone call. My dad needed computer help]
>>30860133He must be -- he didn't post right before you like usual.
>>30860173>>30860170Oh, sweet beautiful irony.
You start stripping and join Jeanine. "So, what's your secret? Robin and I want to know."Jeanine lifts her arm and keeps showering. She looks at you. "Secret?"You glance back to Robin, then to Jeanine. "You know." She's still not following. You push your breasts up. "Your secret."Jeanine isn't as flappable as Robin or Vance. She laughs. "Oh! Just bad luck I guess." She pushes on her lower back. "Half the reason I do core work is to keep my back from giving out."Robin comes and joins you. She's starting to understand that people can talk about these things and the world won't end. "I-I wouldn't mind a little bad luck."(Continued)
>>30860294How lewd, Gobble.
>>30860294Cursed with 'em, Cursed without 'em...
>>30860319Shaddap, you might put him off poketits.
>>30860294You pull Robin under the same shower head that you're using, and then stand next to Jeanine. "What do you think? How much more bad luck do I need?"Robin blushes as her eyes dart between you and Jeanine. Jeanine sees what you're doing and actually helps by posing closer to you. Robin finally breaks and looks down at her feet. "I...I like you the way you are."You walk up to Robin and put you finger on her chin, lifting her head to face you. "Exactly. I like you the way you are too." You give her a quick kiss on the lips.Jeanine stops for a second. "I admit, I thought I'd be uncomfortable, but you two really are a cute couple." She finishes up. You and Robin finish too.Everyone starts getting changed. "So Jeanine, besides aura reading, do you have any other hobbies?" You see her think. "Ogling Vance doesn't count."She looks uncomfortable for a second, but lightens up. Even Robin giggles a little. "You're one to talk," she says to Robin. It's your turn to laugh now as Robin puts back on on that shade of red she had just lost a few minutes ago. "Well, I like to read. I'll ready anything, but I love mystery novels. I want to write a book some day."You never would have guessed that.You offer her the tank top back. She declines. "You can keep it. I have plenty of those.">Accept. Thank her>Decline. It's a nice offer, but it's too big>Accept. Offer her the Stardust vial you won at the festival>Accept, you'll think of something to get her later>Accept, give her something else (write-in)>Something else
>>30860336>Accept. Thank her
>Accept, you'll think of something to get her later
>Accept, give her something else (write-in)Offer her a three-way, tell her to start a quest thread
>>30860336>Accept, you'll think of something to get her laterLets buy her a clothing item, like we did with Robin and Vance
>>30860336>Accept. Thank her.>Offer her the Stardust Vial.>Pet Robin, and brush her hair
>>30860336>Accept. Thank herreakky, no need to try to hard. with gifts and such. just accept it.
>>30860336>Accept. Thank her. Offer the Stardust with a comment.
>>30860336>Accept."I'll have to think of a way to thank you later..."then put a card in Vance's pocket using reverse pickpocketing saying 'Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Vance you're a Fool, Cause Jeanine loves you!'
>>30860336>Accept. Thank herAin't no big, and if you want her feel indebted to us we can always get her something big later. Offering her anything right now would make it look like we are competing in a gift race or something.
>>30860403Sorry, meant to just say offer the stardust
>>30860336>Accept, you'll think of something to get her later
>>30860336>Accept, you'll think of something to get her later>Brushy brushy Robin
>>30860336>Accept, you'll think of something to get her later>Brush Robin's hair
Hey guys let's brush Robin's hair
>>30860598Genius anon, I'll put it on the list.
>>30860598so hot lets do her teeth too
“Thanks.” You accept it, then help Robin brush her hair. There’s just something about brushing her hair that’s so alluring. Maybe he’s how she leans into your movements.Maybe you’ll think of something to give her later. Jeanine smiles back at you. She’s a lot cooler now that she isn’t treating you like an enemy.You come back to Vance talking to his parents in the kitchen. It looks like the three of you came into the middle of a conversation."We need to tell him," you hear his mom say."You're right. Son, sit down. The rest of you too, please."Is this a normal family thing? This feels uncomfortable. His mother starts giving everyone a cup of tea.Georgio sits across from Vance. "Son, you know how we always talked about getting a cafe for your mother?" Vance nods. "I'm afraid that won't be happening. In fact, we'll be closing the fitness center down too."There's a stunned silence at the table. “Why?” Vance asks in disbelief.His dad continues. "Combined with a loan against the gym, we had just saved up enough to get Tony's Diner." Again, Vance just nods. "I...I just wanted to see the money. It was the labour of my life, you understand. The money we saved up was in a jar anyway, so I thought I'd just combine the piles, have a look. It was stupid of me."You'd be lying if you said you didn't fantasize about doing that with your money."On the way to deposit it. I was mugged." He looks up at Vance, he's clearly trying to keep a strong face. "I've been in this city my entire life, I've never had something like that happen."“That’s horrible,” Jeanine says as she puts a hand on Vance’s slumping shoulder.“I couldn’t identify the man who did it. The police don’t have any leads. They told me they’re understaffed and probably wouldn’t ever find anything.”>Ask details about the mugging>Maybe Robin can look at the books. She’s smart>Offer your condolences, stay out of it>Something else
>>30860737It's our opportunity to invest!
>>30860737>>Offer your condolences, stay out of it
>>30860737>Ask details about the muggingWho knows, maybe something connected to that scientist? Or that Team Imperium?You know, if we had done some three way investing, we could of had enough money to lend them some.
>>30860737>Ask details about the muggingTime to get involved! Gobble, prease make this segue into catching the starter stealers.
>>30860737>Ask details about the muggingKat's gotta be a mugging pro!
>>30860737>Ask details about the mugging>Ask Jeanine, who reads tons of mystery novels, to help us solving this
>>30860737"How long ago?"We'll shank a bitch.Can Vlad play bloodhound?
>>30860737>>Ask details about the mugging>>Maybe Robin can look at the books. She’s smartWe know what it takes to catch a thief, right?An accountant.
>>30860737>Inquire about where the nearest gambling hall is and win back the money. (this is a joke)>Ask details about the mugging
>>30860737>Ask details about the muggingWe're gonna have to go undercover in the dark criminal underworld.
>>30860737>Ask details about the mugging>Maybe Robin can look at the books. She’s smart
>>30860737>ask about the muggingSidequest time go!
>>30860813Seconded.Save the family business, expand into the diner!So it begins, our orgy of fiscal responsibility.
>>30860737>Offer your condolences, stay out of itgoddamnit /tg/ dont get us involved in this shit.
>>30860737>Ask details about the mugging>Maybe Robin can look at the books. She’s smartTime for sidequest!
You ask about the details.“It was just the other day. I spent the day with Tony at his dinner going over the finer details. We settled everything and I went home to go get the money so I could deposit it. I came home, we celebrated for a few minutes, and then I gathered it all up. It was late, but I was getting impatient to deposit it after the initial thrill started to wear off. I walked along the usual path. When I came to that open area where the apartments are, that’s where it happened.”Loraine puts a hand on Giorgio’s shoulder. He takes a sip of tea. “It was so fast. I didn’t even see where it came from. In an instant, there was an Arbok wrapped around me. The man had a deep, but nasally voice. He told me to give him everything I had.” He sighs again, and takes another sip. “I told him no. He had his Arbok squeeze me, but I didn’t give in. When the fangs came out though, and I couldn’t breathe anymore, I… I told him.”His shoulders slump, He’s reliving being helpless. He takes a second, then sits a little straighter. “I got him though, right after. When Arbok let me loose so he could get under my coat, I was busy getting my breath back. But just as he was finishing up, I gave him a damn good shiner. Got a chunk of him with my ring.” He looks like he feels a little redeemed. “Wasn’t enough though. Arbok paralyzed me after that. I spent the next while face down in the mud.” He finishes his tea while everyone digests the story. “I was so stupid. I should have kept it in the bank the whole time.”“The only stupid thing you did was try to fight him. You could have been hurt.” Loraine chastises him. >Ask something specific about the mugging (write-in)>Go investigate the spot>Ask the Pokemon center if they’ve had an Arbok in lately>Something elseFull disclosure, this idea came up before you won a shitballs amount of money
>>30861145dude how much D&D or any other roleplay have you played... anyone can tell there is plot here if not then its at least sidequest material. its allways worth doing sidequests!
>>30861172Ask if he cleaned the ring.Have Vlad or Devon play bloodhound."Did Tony want to sell you the diner?"
>>30861172>Something elseAsk about the police investigation.
>>30861172>Ask the Pokemon center if they’ve had an Arbok in lately>Ask to see if Tony discussed the deal with anyone else / more details on him>Check the blood on the ring, if anySpot won't really turn anything up, I don't think. We should be on the lookout for scents or shady fellows with a ring-shaped impression.Could potentially do a stake-out and try to get "robbed" in the same spot.
>>30861172Find some way to breach the idea of funding the cafe. Call it a long term investment.Maybe chat to Vance about it.
>>30861172>Do something that leads to finding the culprit, directly advancing the plot
>>30861172>Ask the Pokemon center if they’ve had an Arbok in latelythen if nothing at the pokemon centre>Go investigate the spotbut before we leave the house>Something else"how much did you need to buy the diner" then compare to our fundings
>>30861145these aren't random people anon, why do you hate sidequests anyways. Don't be a faggot
>>30861233True, seems kind of odd they'd just shut it down given the amount of money involved. At the very least this should make the local papers. It was an apartment building too, surely someone must hyave seen something. This reeks of a set-up.
>>30861172>Ask something specific about the mugging (write-in)Just need to know where it was. I doubt it'll work, but we can try to bait the mugger out with a jarful of fake money.
>>30861238We do have a lot of money so that's possible.
>>30861172Ask about Tony.
>>30861316Wouldn't even need actual money. Just dress expensively and/or wear jewelry or something. Actually risking our funds would be stupid and unnecessary.Blinging out one of us and passing through the area would probably work well. Even if we catch some other thug we could probably work through the network.
>>30861302Dirty cops?Conspiracy?Honestly, I doubt understaffed policemen would investigate a robbery, though. It's not the kind of thing that leaves a whole lot of evidence behind. Anyone can have an arbok, and there's not much the coppers could track, besides 'bok, who could shed skin and cut the trail off.
>>30861399Essentially.Let's try Plan Bait.
>>30859366Should have done some deads
>>30861420No need. It's Tony or somebody close to Tony.1) Knew Giorgio had the money2) Knew his route/knew where he was goingProbably did this so he could purchase the Fitness Club from the bank at a cheaper rate than he could have got it off the Vance's for buying directly.
>>30861471Naturally. Tony would be the first obvious person to investigate after looking into the police report.
>Something elseLose our wealth through some grievous mishap. Does anyone else find being fabulously rich to be boring as fuck? Maybe we'd have a lot more fun scratching and clawing for our existence and being forced into justified petty thievery to sustain ourselves.I miss our delinquent ways, /tg/.
>>30861504Suck it up and deal. We fiscally responsible now.
>>30861504Once, just once, I want to be the dickass thief. Is that too much to ask for?
>>30861525I feel you all the way, Anon.
>>30861525So do you want to rob the thief? Or something else?
>>30861504Go home, Kaiji.>>30861525I do sympathize, being a thief was fun.
>>30861570It's not robbery if it was never theirs to begin with.Just call it repossession
>>30861525I agree with this.I think we should occasionally steal for the sake of stealing. This was our lifestyle before the journey, it should be a hell of a lot harder than this to kick instinctual habits formed over a lifetime.
>>30861504>I miss our delinquent ways, /tg/.It was like two threads and then everyone was like> lets be good> character progression> we can get our waifu this way
I also support occasional larceny, just to keep our hand in.
>>30861595It's funny what people will do for the power of the V.
>>30861595You're goddamned right, Anon. I so dislike how we categorically kicked our origin story and now we're flat straight and narrow. Fuck that, let's break laws. Let's corrupt Robin.
>>30861595Fight the temptation man, we promised Robin.
>>30861595We steal for petty vengeanceJust as good, mostly.
>>30861624Nah hustling would be easierWe've got the MC to case a person, Robin as the bait, and Vance as the muscle if things go south
>>30861626>>30861635>>30861641We can still be honest with Robin about stealing. It's a survival technique from a hard life. I'm sure if we're honest with her about it and try to not do it to EVERY person we stumble across...
>>30861641I think robin just mostly has a problem with actually hurting people with our thieving ways. As a compromise, I say we steal forks and spoons and shit, go straight up Skyrim. Some missing silverware never hurt anyone.
>>30861672I don't think we would involve the others, ESPECIALLY not Robin.They're good kids. If any of us have to end up in jail, at least we'll deserve it.
>>30861678I was just bothering.It could make sense if something happened and we got some character regression. I actually thought it would have made sense if we did it right after we lost that one time.
>>30861700What if the need to perform an emergency tracheotomy and there's no sharp knives or straws?
>>30861678Besides, wouldn't it be cool if we collected badges by beating gym leaders, and trophies by stealing them?I vote that we steal small trinkets from gym leaders we beat and have our own personal 'badges' to show our journey.
>>30861700Put a basket on someone's head, then nab their trousers.
>>30861678>>30861635>>30861704>hey robin i stealing is fun>what omg no kat that's bad stop>no seriously here try it>wow this shit's awesome let's get drunkAnd then we were delinquents and lived happily lesbian after
>>30861704I feel I need to clarify that by 'we' I mean ourselves and not the others.I can see Kat taking a dive for her friends, thinking to herself "Hell, I've been to juvie. I can handle this." before ending up in a REAL jail (until the others use our money to post bail) and realizing we're in WAY over our head.
>>30861756No, we lost all of our money in a bad investment in some shitty diner, remember?
“Did you wash the ring?”Giorgio looks at you. “No. No I didn’t.” He see’s where this is going and goes to get it. “Here, do you have an idea?”You nod. You take out Devon and make sure he can smell it. Devon barks, and looks at Giorgio.Jeanine pipes in. “The police didn’t think of this?”Giorgio looks at her. “No.”“Out of curiosity, how much did you need?” He quotes you a number. It’s just a tiny bit more than you have in funds. You look to Robin. “Maybe you can help with the books?”Robin starts talking with Vance’s parents, going over the numbers. She might help, but there’s no way she’ll be able to make up that amount.You look up to Vance. He knows exactly what you’re thinking, and nods. You whisper to him while his parents are talking to Jeanine and Robin. “Let’s go ask the Pokemon center if they’ve seen anything. Devon can keep his nose to the air and let us know if you smell anything. We’ll go to the Pokemon center, then the spot where he was mugged.”“I know the place.” Vance starts leading your group out the door.“Where are you going?” His mom asks. There’s concern in her voice.“Just to the Pokemon center.” Vance doesn't want them to worry.He’s about to leave when his mom stops you. She kisses him on the cheek. “Take a coat, don’t catch a cold.”“Mooooom” Vance says, embarrassed.
>>30861793Sherlock Kat and Vanceson.
>>30861793I now read Vance's mother's dialogue in a middle aged Jewish woman's voice
>>30861793Time to mug some muggers. Early vote on excessive force. Put mugger in room, put Levi in room, come back 2 hours later.
>>30861846Why not a middle-aged Jewish man?"Oi, Vance, take yuh coat, wut are ya, meshuggah? Ya gonna catch ya death out dere..."
>>30861793You, Robin, Jeanine and Vance leave for the Pokemon center.The Pokemon center is humming with activity. You, Vance, and Jeanine walk up to the nurse. Robin sticks behind you. She’s nervous about this whole thing.“...So we’re looking for anyone with an Arbok.” Vance finishes explaining. The nurse just nods her head. “Are you with the police? They came in asking about that too. I told them the same thing. We see a lot of Pokemon in a day. There could have been an Arbok, but I don’t remember seeing one recently. Most of the time it’s not even necessary to take the Pokemon out of their balls.” Jeanine mentions that the man would have had a gash on his face from the ring, but the nurse still doesn't recall anything.That’s not much help.The four of you arrive at the spot Vance’s dad described. It’s an open area, where the more rustic path leads into an urban one. There are tall streetlights overhead.“This place is horrible for a mugging.” You announce. It’s bright, it’s not particularly secluded, and you’d stand out if you just stood around here.>Investigate the lights. It’d be too bright here>Find somewhere an Arbok could hide>You’re next to an apartment building, ask around if anybody saw something>Have someone act as bait. Maybe they'll return>Something else
>>30861912>>Find somewhere an Arbok could hide
>>30861912>Investigate the lights. It’d be too bright here>>Find somewhere an Arbok could hideIf it's not night, then we should wait for nightAhoy Gobble, what time is it quest-wise?
>>30861912Go talk to Tony.It's good to know that Pokemon Centers don't keep any kind of records or have any security films...
>>30861912>>You’re next to an apartment building, ask around if anybody saw something>“This place is horrible for a mugging.”Aha! It was planned! Clearly it's a rival diner! Let's go interrogate all the local eats on this wild extrapolation.
Things may get ugly. Does Vance have a warrioresque denim jacket?>You’re next to an apartment building, ask around if anybody saw something
>>30861912"So, not a pro then..."Let Devon have a sniff about. See if he picks anything up.
>>30861912>>Investigate the lights. It’d be too bright here>>Find somewhere an Arbok could hideone of these, or maybe both, probably leads to a clue.
>>30861912>Find somewhere an Arbok could hide>You’re next to an apartment building, ask around if anybody saw something
>>30861946Evening. It's not dark yet, but it will be soon
I got it, I know how to make this Quest fucking gangstaAre you ready?Become Bounty HuntersIt's awesome because you can become a Legend, catching wild Pokemon that are rampaging around towns and terrorizing people, everyone will fucking love youWho gives a shit about beating the Elite four because you're helping people rather than being like "Hurrr, I beat the Elite Four.

>>30861912>You’re next to an apartment building, ask around if anybody saw somethingWhat the hell were they thinking doing a mugging in those conditions? We could do a better mugging, and we're weren't even that kind of criminal!

>>30862038Stop! or my relatively weak pokemon will attack!seriously though, not a bad idea, just seems like we're a little green to be taking on anything more than petty crime

You have a big group. You all split up and look around. Jeanine checks out the lighting. The light bulb turns off with a simple spin. Anybody could have just spun it off without any effort. Robin is by a small bush along the path. “Think an Arbok could fit in there?”You’re not sure, but you crawl around in it to see. It’s not hard to fit in. You move around a little more. Wait. There’s something crumpled here. It’s a picture of Vance’s dad.You show it to everyone.“He was targeted.” Jeanine says what you’re all thinking. “Somebody knew he had the money.”“Somebody had to have seen something,” The rest of them nod. You go to the nearby apartment building. Nobody is around, so you use your skills to open it.Jeanine gives you a look.“I have a history. It’s different now” you offer. Truth be told though, you love doing this stuff. The door opens and your group enters the building. One by one, you start knocking on each door, asking around. You keep getting no answers. Eventually though, someone does give you something promising. A portly older woman with a cigarette. “Yeah. I saw something. You don’t look like cops.” Vance explains that it was his father who was robbed. “Yeah, alright. So I saw a guy skulking about. He had this uniform on. It had a big I on it. He was talking to another guy. I didn’t see the other guy clearly, but he was about as tall as Blondie here. Anyway, they exchanged a small paper or something, then he left, and the guy in the uniform stuck around. He had an Arbok out. It wasn’t none of my business, so I went back to watching TV.”>Ask her something else (write-in)>Go to Tony’s diner>Go to the Police, ask about their investigation>Something else
>>30862414>Something elseLeave. Ask if Vance knows the person, if he does, then go to the police, if he doesn't, then stick around in case the fellow shows up again. If that doesn't happen, ask Vance if Tony is the type of guy to screw over his family like this.
>>30862414Man I called that shit so hardAlso, did anyone else read the portly woman with Futurama's crazy cat lady's voice?Anyway, >Go to Tony’s dinerFucking Tony
>>30862414I bet someone who knows Vance's father payed someone off to mug him
>>30862414>Go to Tony’s dinerNigga set this up. Lets bust a kneecap
>>30862414>>Ask her something else (write-in)"Could you describe the guy in uniform?""I know you didn't get a good look, but do you think you would recognise the other guy if you saw him again?"
>>30862414>Go to Tony's dinerTony, if he isn't the source of this, would at least probably have some leads at his diner.
>>30862414So Team Imperial are behind the mugging... We owe them a visit for stealing our Starter & Dex...
>>30862414Go fuck Tony up
>>30862503If we ever did find those, would we take the dex?I've become attached to our infected dex.Would we take a starter?
>>30862546By now they either sold the starter or it's already bonded to one of their guys
>>30862546Nah, we'd probably send it all back to Fir... they guy had it hard enough to begin with...
>>30862583Nah, knowing the henchmen from the anime/manga, they're probably using them to power some retarded contraption
>>30862610I'm just getting the image of the Kanto trio running on little hamsterwheels to power up a giant lightbulb.
>>30862583Sold is more likely.
>>30862696What if they chopped off their tails as a delicacy? Slowpoke tail goes for 1,000,000 Johtobucks.
>>30862742But they're the starters, fairly rare, worth lots of dough.
"Could you describe the guy in uniform?"She thinks. “Well, he had blonde hair in a sort of bowl cut. That sounds exactly like the Team Imperium member with the Jigglypuff that got away when you, Vance and Robin stopped the robbery in Chloroville."I know you didn't get a good look, but do you think you would recognize the other guy if you saw him again?"“Yeah. I mean maybe, from the right angle. He had dark hair, like I said he was about the same height as her,” She points to Jeanine. “He was fidgety too. Looked like he didn’t want to be seen with the other guy.”Vance looks at Jeanine. “Tony is about your height.”“Would he do something like this?”Vance thinks. “Tony was never a great guy, but he never had a history I know of. He likes to gamble though.” There’s an understated rage in Vance’s voice. He’s acting calm, but you can sense a huge amount of anger underneath.(continued)
>>30862859I love you
Maybe he got into a bad debt with the wrong crowd?
>>30862859Your group decides to go to Tony’s Diner to see what’s going on.Tony’s Diner is a quaint little place. It’s not particularly busy right now, but it’s not empty either. There are a few booths open, but the loudest sound is an old TV in the corner. “In other news, police still have no new leads on wanted criminal Dr. Hornbeam, who narrowly escaped police capture earlier this week, injuring two officers.”It reminds you of a grimier version of the diner you visited with Robin back in Novum. You can see why Vance’s parents had hope for it though. With some dedicated work, it could turn into a decent look establishment.You catch the man who can only be Tony through the swinging door in the kitchen. He’s whistling a tune as he works. You see him tying up a garbage bag.A waitress sits you and your party down at a booth. “What’ll it be?” >Confront Tony in the restaurant>Confront him in the back alley when he takes out the garbage>Confront him in the back alley when he takes out the garbage. Just take Vance and something to cover your faces.>Maybe this was a bad idea. Just head back to his parents place>Something else

>>30862917>Confront Tony in the restaurant>Show him the photoI'd like a serving of Justice with a side order of Freedom
>>30862917>Go to the police with our findings
>>30862917>Confront Tony in the restaurantSend out Gyarados, 'EVERYBODY OUT!'Watch as all the diners reach for their pokeballs and mob us
>>30862917>>Confront him in the back alley when he takes out the garbage. Just take Vance and something to cover your faces.C'mon /tg/. You were all gung ho about bounty hunting. Nut up
>>30862949No, wait.>Confront him in the back alley sans Vance, pretend to be part of Team Imperium. Use Devon to try to be more intimidating?
>>30862917>Confront him in the back alley.Kat will surprise him, Vance will go through the kitchen and bar the door from the inside.Also, let's let out Devon and see if he gets Tony's scent.
>>30862997ThisthisthisthisthisEngage subterfugeC'mon, /tg/ this is what we were born to do
>>30862917>>Confront Tony in the restaurantWe don't have anything concrete on him, unfortunately. We can use the bystanders to put pressure on him, hope he'll crack.
>>30863057Employ cunning to engage in a cunning ploy.
>>30862917>>30862997>Confront him in the back alley sans Vance, pretend to be part of Team Imperium.The fact that he doesn't know who we are could cause him to be a little more open about anything he's hiding.
>>30863098Be furtive and shit
>>30862917Getting the cops is probably a good idea, here. Vance is about to snap.
Just want to make sure I reflect the actual voting opinion. Quote only>Confront Tony in the restaurant>Pretend to be a member of Team Imperium and confront him in the alley alone>Take Vance, cover your faces, and confront in the alley>Go to the police with what you have

>>30863249>Pretend to be a member of Team Imperium and confront him in the alley aloneMake sure someone records it.
>>30863402Yeah. That seems important.
well we are at page 7 now just so you all know
>>30863704I have a feeling it'll be end of quest soon, it's a good cliffhanger, and it's late.
Jeanine, Vance, and Robin all order water for now. When the waitress goes away, they start discussing their options."Excuse me." You get up and excuse yourself. Instead of going to the washroom, you slip out the back when nobody is looking. There's a small thrill that runs through your body as you do.You come around to the back of the diner. It's very poorly lit. You make sure Devon is out.Just as you figured, he's here taking out the trash. You and Devon come up behind him.He turns around and you're right in his face. "Who the hell are you!"Alright. You can do this. Commit. "I'm with Team Imperium, Tony." Devon growls deeply. Good boy, that'll sell it better.He backs away. "Wait. Woah. I delivered. My debt is paid. What do you want?" He's scared. A sense of relief washes over you. That's good, he won't be thinking clearly.You're glad it's so dark. You doubt this would work in plain view. Devon starts sniffing over him.>Tell him the cops are onto him. Maybe he'll panic and mention something useful>Ask him about the blonde Team Imperium member>Screw this. Drop the act and get Leviathan out. Get your answers that way>Something else
>>30863732>Ask him about the blonde Team Imperium memberTell him he's been aprehended, and accuse him of ratting to the police.
>>30863732And of course, the question is, "now what"?You didn't think you'd get this far, did you?
>>30863732>Screw this. Drop the act and get Leviathan out. Get your answers that way
>>30863778THIS! OMG THIS IS INGENIOUS!
>>30863732>Tell him the cops are onto him. Maybe he'll panic and mention something useful'You were seen you idiot. Someone went to the cops and now they are on your trail, which means they are on OUR trail'
>>30863732>>Ask him about the blonde Team Imperium member>>30863778>>30863820
>>30863732>>Tell him the cops are onto him. Maybe he'll panic and mention something useful
>>30863732"We heard about how you got the money, Tony. Even Team Imperium has standards."Motion for Devon to pin him.
>>30863778This. I don't suppose we have anything capable of recording on us other than possibly our busted pokedex?
>>30863855....shit.Worry about that later.
>>30863778I'm gonna go ahead and back this.
>>30863778This is good.
>>30863732>Ask him about the blonde Team Imperium member"Well if you've paid up like you say, blondie's done a runner. And that's a problem for both of us. Why don't you go over *exactly* what you arranged with blondie for me?"
>>30863778The best idea.
>>30863969This is also good, but they're mutually exclusive.
Gobble is kill, yes?Sometimes I feel like he's just waiting for me to post before he hits submit
You wish you had a recording device. You don't think anyone in your party had anything either, except maybe Robin's Pokedex. Just in case, you slip a hand into our own pocket and press the button on your Pokedex that's supposed to record Pokemon calls. You never know."What did you say, Tony?""I-I-I don't know what you're talking about!"You make sure Devon feels your hostility to this person. He growls and shows a mouth full of fire."The police already arrested one of us. Maybe you know him? Tall guy, blonde hair, bowl cut?""Delmer?"So his name is Delmer. "You're awfully quick to start saying names Tony." You keep the pressure on."Wait! I didn't say anything! I swear. I gave Delmer the picture, I even encouraged Giorgio to have the money on him. I know he had more than what I owed on him. Come on, this was the deal right? I keep my diner, you guys get paid, everyone wins. I swear I didn't say anything to the cops. Why would I? I just haven't been to the club because I don't want to rack up any more debts. I'm not avoiding nobody!"Now you know exactly what happened, but that means Tony doesn't have the money. You'll need to find Delmer if you want to track it down.>Search through his pockets, say you're looking for a wire>Try to get him to spill the location of 'the club' (write-in encouraged)>Ask something else (write-in)>Fine, you believe him. You were never here. (Leave)>Something else
>>30864234I swear I'm not. I think we just work on the same rhythm.[/spoiler}
>>30864234>>30864269...again. You have a talent, anon.>>Search through his pockets, say you're looking for a wire
>>30864269>Fine, you believe him. You were never here. (Leave)But sound threatening.We can't drill him for more without seeming suspicious.
>>30864320Pretty much.Unless someone comes up with something really clever we should stop.
>>30864300We're psychotically linked. You, me, and the other anon that fills my place when I'm not around>>30864269>Try to get him to spill the location of 'the club' (write-in encouraged)But I got nothin'. Maybe we should just abscond.
>>30864269>Search through his pockets, say you're looking for a wireThen>Fine, you believe him. You were never here. (Leave)
>>30864269>Fine, you believe him. You were never here. (Leave)"If you're lying, we'll find you..."
>>30864269>Fine, you believe him. You were never here. (Leave)Let's use this write-in>>30864377Let's not push our luck, there can't be that many shady clubs in this town.
>>30864349Seconding. Be quick about it though
>>30864269"Tauros shit. You've been avoiding us, Tony, and the boss doesn't like that. In fact, let's go say hello right now. MOVE!"Snap. Point at him. Hope Devon gets the message.
>>30864444Too risky. It could lead to a lot of situations that would make Tony or Imperium members suspicious. If they suspect we've got something on them, they'll disappear.
Page nine, are we leaving off on this last post, or move onto part 2?
So we got a witness who can recognise Tony and a confession that may or may not have been recorded along with some info about a club and that Team Imperium is behind this.Might be enough to take it to the police, that is, if we're not expecting the police are involved already.
>>30864655Worse case the recording is not useful, bad 'dex and all, but we still have that witness.
You start digging through his pockets. "W-what are you doing?"You take out his wallet and skim through it. Nothing interesting or helpful. You put it back. "Looking for wires." You pat him down roughly. He starts to protest, but Devon growls harshly. You reach into his other pocket and take a matchbook."I have good news Tony. I believe you."You see him visibly relax a little. "Thank you. I swear I didn't say anything."You grab him by his shirt collar and give him a hard shake. You put your entire body into it. He's taller than you, so you need to really sell it. "If you're lying, we'll find you..."You push him into the wall and leave. "I was never here, Tony." You say without looking back. You need to act confident.That was...surprisingly fun. You feel such a rush. You look at the matchbook. The Pink Persian. Never heard of it. You check your Pokedex to see if it recorded it. Nothing, just static and a few faint words, but nothing that helps.You come back to the table."I had a chat with Tony in the alley. I found out everything." You tell them what Tony told you.Vance looks like he's going to leave the table and burst into the kitchen to confront Tony. Jeanine and Robin put their hands on his shoulder, easing him back into his seat.Jeanine looks impressed. Robin looks concerned. You see her mouth "You could have been hurt.">To the Pink Persian!>Take what you have to the police. Let them take care of it>Let Vance loose on Tony. He deserves it>Something else
>>30864688>Take what you have to the police. Let them take care of itBut don't be forthright with what we found, just say we heard about the mugging and ask if they've found anything. Try to get a feel for whether they're dirty.
>>30864688[last vote for the night, but we'll be starting earlyish tomorrow. Will post in Twitter and qtg ahead of time]
>>30864688>>To the Pink Persian!Our sleuthing continues!
>>30864688>>To the Pink Persian!
>>30864688>Something elseFind out what the Pink Persian is, then head to the cops and tell them what you've got.
>>30864688>To the Pink Persian!Fuck da po-leese
>>30864688>Take what you have to the police. Let them take care of it
>>30864688>To the Pink Persian!
>>30864688>To the Pink Persian!"I'm fine, but now we should head to the Pink Persian!"
>>30864688>To the Pink Persian!We'll take Jeanine and Vance with us. This is just not 'your' speed, Robin.
>>30864688>>30864727I like this idea. Confirm what the Pink Persian is and if it's a place to place bets. If so then give all that we got to the Cops
Votes counted. Thanks for coming everyone! I'll be around for a bit if anyone has any questions before the thread dies.
>>30864719Hey Gobble, you're gonna keep putting degenerate options into our default choices again, right? I think /tg/ realized we want to be the night.
We gonna be PI/Bounty Hunters while becoming a Pokemon Master right?
>>30864907Thanks for running, man. I'm looking forward to tomorrow! Gonna wreck some shit!
>>30864910Absolutely. It seems like it's a popular option now. I let it drop off the default choices for awhile since it seemed like nobody wanted that for an option while trying to get with Robin. Now it seems like there's some support to get back into Kat's roots.
>>30864998Well, yeah. We've got the girl and corrupted her a little bit, so we can have a little flexibility in playing to our strengths. Besides, as long as we use our talents only in pursuit of what's right (or we can effectively bullshit Robin with our reasoning), then all's well.
>>30864998Suh-weeeet. Also, alcohol is never a bad [meta] ingredient.>>30865054Don't bullshit our sweet; inform her of the joys of debauchery. It's going to be so goddamn kawaii to see our little angel turn into a decedent thrill-chaser.
>>30864998Seems people are really biting the Tem Imperium subplot now.
>>30865109Eh, slippery slope. Too far either way and she becomes a caricature.
>>30865109Sneak into her room/tent each night and make her skirt sliiightly shorter.
>>30864998I just tuned in to the thread. This was pretty cool Gobble great job as always. Did you plan on Team Imperium being reoccurring villains?
Seems like there have been hints to Robin changing a bit. She's more forward with wanting us, dressing a little bit more showy, etc.I think we can make this work. If we play it right we can probably turn her into a corrupt, punk, sexy sidekick. She almost has a split rebel personality that shows up that we can exploit
>>30864941Pokemon Noir QuestFUND IT
>>30865154Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.At first? I planned on absolutely nothing. I still try to avoid planning ahead since you never know what ideas are going to be popular.Once things got more established I liked the idea of Team Imperium sprinkled in a few places. There's a lot of potential I thought would be fun to explore, but I don't want to railroad any sidequests (Didn't expect players to just ignore Antonio or run from Hornbeam in Aquapolis). But I'm actually really happy with how things turned out. If everything went exactly how I 'plan' it, I'd just be writing a fanfic instead of facilitating a quest. That's why it's so fun. I love seeing an unexpected write-in more than anything
>>30865279Next thread: we coax Robin into beguiling a Team Imperium member through use of adorable innocence, followed by the petty larceny of said member; shortly thereafter, our tents do the fusion danceGobble pls make happen
>>30865279When you first showed the ][ logo, my initial thought was that it was going to be Team Infinity. I still think it sounds cooler.Thanks for running!
>>30865279Yeah, thanks again Gobble. I think you can really tell you enjoy running the quest. Hopefully I can participate next time.
>>30865316Lets teach her how to pick pocket. Remember her whole thing about "wow, I didn't know that could be taught?"Worse case Ontario: She sucks and just ends up sticking her hands in our pockets
>>30865399Teach her to pick locks first. Soon she will have skilled fingers.
>>30865399Skill to teach: pickpocketingPractice target: our buttIt can't be any more perfect113% support
>>30865507Have her practice by trying to pick up an oiled bean with her fingertips
>>30865507>Robin actually starts getting good at it.>Have her practice against Jeanine>She gets caught with her hands on her butt>Robin panics. "Kat told me to do it!">Jeanine thinks we want her in a threesome from then on
>>30865276>Pokemon PI Questoh yeah
>>30865626"I wasn't always such a hardass. I wanted to be a trainer once, when I was younger. Rattata and I, we were going straight to the top. That was before we ran into Team Rocket. I still visit him occasionally, over in Lavender Town. Work keeps me busy, though. My name's Joey. I'm a detective."
>>30855828protip: school didnt theach them either, but they use common sense, which is to take money off of other people while they think it's being managed.
