Sorry about the super late start, everyone, but dinner went way longer than planned! Anyways, I'll run this as long as I can, though I'll probably run another thread on Tuesday to make up for it.Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Idol%20Management%20QuestPast Quests:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pararescue%20Witcheshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Hunter%20QuestROSTER AND STATS: http://pastebin.com/SAMhh7azLOADOUTS: http://pastebin.com/h9eAwLMKFACILITIES: http://pastebin.com/fKbxZ13vINFLUENCE: http://pastebin.com/Ytf7vs7UYou are the PRODUCER, a former soldier hired to manage a group of teenage girls on their rise to stardom, assuming they don't get killed in the process!Currently, you're on the Tonight Show with Rin, who is busy being interviewed by the host. She's now responding to a question regarding the other idols of your company."Well, they all do have their quirks." Rin smiles. "Rochelle is into the weirdest things, like retro games and movies, Julie could have very well been a police officer if she wanted to, and Cole may seem like a nasty, mean girl but she's actually super sweet inside! You should've seen her face when she had ice cream for the first time!"(cont)
>>30865036"Whoa, wait, you mean to tell me she's only had ice cream just recently?" Falon leans forward in surprise."I know, right? I was surprised too!""We're talking about the same Cole here that beat up an entire football team almost singlehandedly?""The same!" Rin giggles. "Well, the more you know!" Falon chuckles. "And oh, look at the time! Next up, we'll see all the girls from Clover Entertainment when they perform!""All right, commercial break!" One of the stagehands yells and a timer starts up. "Three minutes!"Falon's holographic image then winks out as stage hands rush forward to set up the small stage. You see your idols safe and sound take position at the rear while Rin moves up front and center. Meanwhile you can see DeRosa among the audience glowering at you.What a dickbutt."Thirty seconds!">Stay backstage to observe the girls.>Move to the audience stands to confront DeRosa.>Other
>>30865043>Stay backstage to observe the girls.
>>30865043>>Stay backstage to observe the girls.
>>30865043Who the fuck is Falon?
>>30865043>Stay backstage to observe the girls.>OtherBorrow the oracle to make sure there are no more surprises.
>>30865094Wait, derp, it's late and I'm not thinking straight.
We should really get a large bulletin board for central area of the office so we can post pictures from the very beginning leading all the way to the present day. We could have photos of our roster, things that the staff or the girls did on and off-screen (i.e. training, hanging out), magazine clippings, staff parties (hopefully something humorous), etc. If this were the ending to a show, most of the pictures would be static while the some would be animated to show brief, but important events such as: Producer entering Delta City for the first time, meeting the girls, combat missions, performances, meeting new cast members, or dramatic moments; while the camera would pan from the oldest to the most recent photos as a recap of what happened in the Quest, and as slow piano music would play in the background.
>>30865043>Stay Backstage to observe the girlsIf the other girls try to attack in front of the camera, they'll be screwed by our girls and the public. Also, we got our first recurring enemy. Hooray!
>>30865094just a no body now that Leno is gone. >>30865043>Stay backstage to observe the girls.
>>30865043Well, you suppose you should be flattered that you now have your own rival of sorts. However, you feel that he wouldn't try anything on national television, so you opt to stay backstage to observe your girls. "Okay, we're recording in three... two... one!"Falon's hologram rematerializes and he plasters on a fake smile. "Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Clover Entertainment!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQl6giOohnIYou can't help but grin at the lyrics "No Brand Girls". It was actually kind of fitting, considering your current situation. You had to give David some props for that.>Updated rule! Backup idols will not suffer autofails on a roll of a 1. Their performance only exists to support the main idols, so naturally they are not put under as much scrutiny.>roll 4d20
Rolled 20, 1, 12, 14 = 47>>30865246
Rolled 4, 4, 7, 9 = 24>>30865246Roll'in

Rolled 7, 18, 10, 7 = 42>>30865246Hope the girls don't fuck up.
>>30865257(The following has been written with shock rather than anger)WHAT THE HELL ARMCHAIR!? I just caught up with VMQ quests 1 & 2, and realized that you could have unknowingly saved us a lot of trouble avoiding that waifu shitstorm if you had Lucas swear fealty to Morgan during that grad trip early on in the quest instead of omitting it. Also, why the hell are your rolls so damn consistent whenever we interact with her?
>>30865257>>30865262>>30865269Mediocre rolls, hopefully that 1 isn't from Rin
>>30865287Actually that would be good, she could just reroll it with Improvise.
>>30865284likely because he didn't want to start one as such a move would have started things. People are loathe to go rushing into routelocks.
>>30865287ether way wouldent we just take a star power and use it?
Rolled 7, 5, 10, 3 = 25>>30865246
>>30865284Peer pressure I guess, or the fact that it was quite early in the quest. As for the dice rolls, Dice God gives and takes easily so I guess they threw me a bone.
>>30865323And VMQ 2 still fell into waifu faggotary. I liked that VMQ 1 was better because Karla was both an excellent antagonist and waifu.
>>30865346Though If I knew the end result was what would have happen, I wished you did.
>>30865307>>30865327We should do well here, since we're just starting out and we just got on national tv.
>>30865352>>30865346Let's not talk about VMQ2. Let's focus on idol quest. the former left a bad taste in my mouth for weeks.>>30865246Also Merc who got the 1?
>>30865352don't forget anti-waifu faggotry as we had both kinds, both wreaking different sorts of havoc.
>>30865352I was late the VMQ1 party and I spent my entire time reading it wondering "Man, I wish Jay Jay broke her neck in those first few threads."
>>30865372At this time, I now realize I had two chances for a Morgan route. But I learned to accept it for what it was. Hopefully, I won't fall into peer pressure again despite the potential blame put on me. Those are my two cents and that's all I have left to say.
>>30865257Twenty rolled!Do you wish to bank it? Your current STAR POWER is at 2.>Y>N
>>30865479>NAnd isn't our star power at a much higher number?
>>30865479>>NLet's save it for when it really counts
>>30865479Nah, Use a 20 on our first time on TV? Hell yeah!!
>>30865479NNeed to give it good
>>30865501well FUCK. I meant to do Y, oh well.
>>30865479>NPuchis when Merc?
>>30865652I just remembered, isn't Puchimas getting a second season this spring?
>>30865479N We should also spend a star Powah to negate that one
>>30865664Correct, get hype.
>>30865664I'd rather just another season of the regular IM@S show...
>>30865664probably. the 4koma is still ongoing now.endless Puchis...
>>30865479>Do you wish to bank it? Your current STAR POWER is at 2.Does the 1 matter in this context?If so, cancel it out so the 20 doesn't bite it
>>30865479And, something happens. You can't quite seem to describe it, but Rin really seemed to be in the zone today. Her movements were fluid and natural, her voice hit every note perfectly, and she seemed to have this serene look on her face that seemed to show that what she was doing was perfectly natural to her. Near the end of the song, she does a spin that causes both her hair and her skirt to flutter in the air, captivating you and the audience even further. By the time the performance was over, everybody almost seemed to forget that they were recording a TV show. The stage directly blinks for a few seconds before realizing what happened and reactivates Falon. The holographic host winks back into existence and he starts clapping his hands."And that was a wonderful performance! Clover Entertainment, everybody!">Rin gains +1 Appeal!With that, everybody is ushered off stage again. The stage director thanks you, and hands you your check.>+ $5000"Hey man, if it's not too much to ask..." The normally gruff stage director pauses and looks away bashfully. "Um, you think I can get an autograph from Rin?">Y>N>Other
The only valid waifu 'ere iz Jenner
>>30865722Probably not. If it's Rin we'll have a chance to reroll from her ability (I think?)
>>30865727>Y>OtherIf Rin is okay with it
>>30865735don't want to be fucking our daughters so might as well choose Chifuyu
>>30865727>>YI don't see why not
>>30865727>Y"Sure..."*Runs a quick background check on the guy, just to be sure.*
>>30865727>YAnything for a fan.
>>30865727>Yarr, ye lubber!!!!I mean, >Y.
>>30865735I must be the only here rooting for Lilith.
>>30865748There is Lilith but, Jenner is best girl so far
>>30865727i wonder if we have enough to higher a person to man the database?
>>30865748Besides, Chifuyu looks great in maido.
>>30865767So am I but well she hardly gets much page time compared to Jenner.
>>30865748Unless we enter a relation with Ushimiya for the sheer awkward and lulz.
>>30865727>5000I think we should invest 2000 in the armoured SUV.With the attention we're getting, I think we'll need it.And the extra space helps when we get more idols.
Chifuyu is great but how come so little interaction with Lilith?
>>30865810Why would it be awkward? P-san doesn't give a shit if there's a dick or vag or yes.He's enlightened.
>>30865794That's what staff parties are for if we ever get one.
>>30865818Because trades don't get a lot of screen time just by being trades.The plumber's only important when your house floods.I'd vote for more socialization with Lilith and David, though.
>>30865818Because, she's our assistant. Lilith is our Idol's Psychologist. We only go to her for advice and see if I idols are okay
>>30865823Awkward isn't about gender or sexuality.Its about personality.
>>30865825Even so, the sheer page time advantage Jenner has would be hard to offset in that time frame.
>>30865864Oh well, it sure does solve the waifu war problem. You can't complain about that.
>>30865727>>Other"... Sure, buddy, I'll ask for you. But in return, tell me about Derosa. I get the feeling he doesn't like us, and I'd like to know a bit more about him. You work with him, right? Scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours."
>>30865889But we have the daughter war instead.Who is best daughter!
>>30865889And sparks off daughteru wars.Which daughter is the best daughter
>>30865852I don't see how that would be awkward either. Both know what they want.
>>30865901>>30865903Hive mind?Also, trick question. All of them are best.
>>30865897Actually, this is a good answer. Supporting
>>30865903>>30865901Thought that was obvious. Cole.
>>30865951But it's Julie.
>>30866003Lets compromise.As long as its not Rin, they are all pretty good. Even if one is demonstrably superior.
>>30865951>>30866003>>30866029Ah, now we're talking like dad's trying to one up each other.
>>30866039>>30866037>>30866029>>30866003>>30865951>>30865928Terrible fathers>>30865917Is truth
>>30865727"Yeah, sure, why not?" You nod. "Hey Rin, can you come here for a second?""Yeah, sure." Rin nods and walks over."Mind signing an autograph?""Sure!" Rin smiles and nods. "Oh man, and this is the first one I get to sign, too!""The first autograph..." The stage hand says blissfully before regaining his sense. "Well, uh, anyways, good job today. Maybe we'll see you on the show again.""Yeah, let's hope for that, huh?"You and Rin make your way to the parking lot, where your van is waiting. You see Rochelle, Julie, Cole, and Jenner there as well."Holy crap, Rin, you were soooooo cool out there!" Rochelle gushes. "I mean, holy shit, does being on camera make you perform better or something!""I know! She seemed like an entirely different person!" Julie grins."I guess she did pretty good." Cole grunts, trying to hide the fact she was impressed as well."Ah, well, it was nothing!" Rin laughs lightly. "I just did what I always do!""Yeah well, keep that up and we'll be sure to go straight to the top!" Rochelle grins. "Oh! You should totally sleep over at the office today! Come on! It'll be fun!""Well, I don't know, is that allowed?" Rin blinks.Everybody turns to you.>Hell yes.>I don't know...>Other
>>30866064>hell yes>office pillow fight
>>30866064>>Hell yes.Take pictures for a collage.
>>30866064>>I don't know...Pretend to consider leaving them in expense.>Hell yes.As long as her parents are okay with it
>>30866064>Hell yesquality bonding time
>>30866085>As long as her parents are okay with itI dont think they will.
>>30866064>>OtherWe'll ask your parents first, Rin. If they're okay with it, then you can sleep over.
>>30866101She still lives under their house at least get permission from her grandfather
>>30866064>>Hell yes."Celebrations are in order. Rin, i'm very proud of you."
Wait so what kind of food should we order?
>>30866064>>30866103>>30866122A Parents permission is always required. Also inform parents we will be attending slumber party to ensure safety.
>>30866178Pizza and chinese food in equal measure.
>>30866064Hell yes.Unintended tactical genius bonus: Rin is our group's center who just showed off on front of a pissed off rival. Keeping her close tonight would be good.
>>30866064"Hmmmm, I don't know...." You say playfully, causing all four girls to pout simultaneously. "Just kidding! Just kidding! I got no problems with it, as long as Rin's parents are okay with it.""Ah, right!" Rin nods and whips out her cell phone, tapping the keys rapidly as she sends out a text, and is quickly answered with a loud PING. "They said yes!" She squeals. "They actually saw me on TV, too!""That's so awesome!" Rochelle laughs. "Aw man, I have to see if my parents were watching, too!"You see Julie and Cole get a bit quieter there, and you realize that neither of them seemed to really have any parents. Well, it wasn't as if Rin and Rochelle were purposefully trying to hurt them, but you figure you'll have to talk to them about it later. However, now was the time for celebrating! The girls load up in the van, and you move to make your way to the passenger seat when you see DeRosa standing casually by the stairwell, motioning for you to come. Apparently he wanted to talk?>Go talk to him.>Ignore him.>Other
>>30866260Tonight, while our idols party, we need to do our research and discover what we can about our new rivals.
>>30866277>>Go talk to him.oh well
>>30866277>>Go talk to him.Shit eating grin?Yes or No
>>30866277>Go talk to him.Do we have the Oracle with us?Also, have K-Zwolf shadow incase anything happens.
>>30866277>>Go talk to him
>>30866277>>Go talk to him.make sure to open with sup dickbutt or something like that
Some speculation about backstory: Julie's father used to be a good cop/detective investigating a case when he dug too deep (corruption?). This would cause someone to "reassign" him and his family to the Tombs.
>>30866277>go talk to him, make sure K-Zwolf is watching the girlsAlso merc puchis when?
>>30866277>Go talk to him."So you want an autograph too I take it." >Smirk<
>>30866277>Go talk to himJust to get it over with. Also be professional please.
>>30866324or she's just a homeless rat who saw a broken clip of Robocop 46 and started hitting people with whatever she could find.Not everything is dramatic.
>>30866292No. We have to maintain some semblance of propriety. We are, after all, the young upstart company. That said, we can flash a shit-eating grin at him later depending on how the conversation goes.
>>30866332>tfw I am now imagining a mercenary group of puchis
>>30866277>go talk to him, make sure K-Zwolf is watching the girls
>>30866277> Ignore himThey gonna black bag us yo.
>>30866292No. Always open with professional, we don't know how this conversation is going to go.
>>30866178Pizza, burgers, and chips, chased down with copious amounts of ice cream, ghost/war stories, and romcoms for the girls.
>>30866277"Hey, give me just a second, Jenner." You say as you turn to DeRosa. Making sure that K-Zwolf is keeping an eye on things, you walk over to him."I must admit, your idols put up a rather enthralling performance." DeRosa says as he golfclaps. "I honestly underestimated you and your idols.""That you did." You say in a neutral tone. You needed to figure out what his angle was here."You know, perhaps I was a bit too hasty in our dealings." DeRosa continues, his voice losing none of that silky sheen. "I would be willing to reconsider your offer for a partnership?">Yes>No>HELL NO>Other
>>30866397I agree except the romcom.Knowing half of them they'll like retro scifi movies or just straight comedies
>>30866412>Let's hear it.
>>30866412>"Tell me more."
>>30866412>>Other"Lets hear the terms first. And I'll need to speak with my management first, of course."
>>30866412>OtherWhat do you have in mind?
>>30866412"Sorry, but that was a one time offer. Have a good night, DeRosa."
>>30866416buddy cops and explosions of gore are more likely. None of them are very traditionally "girly."Chances are if left alone Julie and Cole will figure out how to stream porn.
>>30866412>Other"Lets hear what you have in mind."
>>30866412>>OtherLet's hear the terms.
>>30866412>Yes"Preliminary, I can say I am interested. We can discuss terms another time."
>>30866437I think Cole will break the computer.Julie...I have no idea how she'll react but it will be justicy
>>30866412I am interested but I have work to finish up tonight, how about we meet another time and figure out the details?
>>30866412OtherHear the terms first.I expect after this performance we might get a couple more offers from other firms.Lets say we'll need to speak with the boss first so that we can see what other offers from other firms come our way.
>>30866437What are their fetishes? Sorry for the lewd.
>>30866277>>Go talk to him.Call z-wolf for backup - just in case he tries to shank us."Are you sure you don't want to aim me at your rivals? You look like you've done some rethinking."
>>30866459I'm pretty sure at this point in their development/lives anything that falls under the umbrella category of "is hunky + has a penis," will get them going.
>>30866416 tfw cole ends up liking romcoms secretly
>>30866475I doubt it'd be very secret...whole point of romcoms is to make the viewer feel good and Cole would soak that up like a sponge.She'd get made pretty quick.
>>30866459Julie's a Switch, and very into BDSM. Rochelle likes roleplay. And Cole? She's into consensual, heterosexual sex in the missionary position for the sole purpose of recreation. With the lights off And holding hands.
>>30866412>"I would be willing to reconsider your offer for a partnership?"This is a chance to turn an enemy into a rival, or at least sign a non-aggression pact.We've survived so far by NOT getting quashed on by the big, established guys.The smart play is to see what he has to say."I'm just the face of the company, Mister Derosa. Anything too official, and I might have to kick it upstairs - tell me what's on your mind?"
>>30866412"Okay, let's hear what you have to say first." You say cautiously."Hmmm, a smart move." DeRosa chuckles. "The arrangement is simple, really. First, your company will stay out of District 2. In return, I will promise not to engage in any hostile actions against your company..""There needs to be more consideration than that." You say."I'm getting there. There's another idol company, Zenith, that's also trying to edge into District 2. If something were to happen that would cause them to suspend their operations in District 2 indefinitely, well, that would be a huge boon for the both of us. I have one less competitor to worry about, and my company will owe a favor to yours. And I must say, my combat idols are VERY skilled.""Huh...""It's a limited time offer, Producer. Take it or leave it.">Deal>No Deal>Other
>>30866559>>No DealWe're doing this fair and square.
>>30866559>>OtherPretend we'll have to run it by the boss first before we can agree.We'll need to know more about Zenith. If we're doing ourselves a favour by getting rid of them…
>>30866559>OtherUnfortunately it's not up to me, I must talk to my superiors
>>30866559>>No DealA favor owed in exchange for something he could no doubt do himself? It'd be nice to remove him from a list of enemies, but this costs us too much and our idols are far too nice/optimistic to be willing to just take down a competitor like that. We must rise above the rabble, not descend to their level.
>>30866559No DealHe's trying to get rid of two competitors at the same time. Plus, he just says his girls are tough. No evidence could mean he is talking out of his ass. Plus what is he giving us? Absolutely nothing.
>>30866498So Rochelle is an airship customized to carry and launch aircraft?
>>30866559> I have to talk to the boss, he gives me a lot of freedom where my girls are concerned but major decisions like this he prefers to weigh in
>>30866559>Other"May I suggest alternative terms. My company stays out of District 2. In return you share intel on rival groups, and of any other opportunities outside of District 2. Any job your group is unavailable to do, we get to look at. This way, we don't step on each other's toes, and Clover Entertainment expands in other directions."
>>30866559Ask THE BOSS if it is okay
>>30866559>>DealThis sounds pretty solid. We knock off a competitor, and we get to call in a favor on a later date.Connections, people--they're the key to moving forward in any business--and this connection might just be the stepping stone we need to get to bigger and better things.
>>30866559>>No DealNot a thing a trust worthy person does
>>30866559>Other >Run it through the bossSeriously we don't even know who these guys are right? and we can always just back out of the deal, I mean it's not we're vying to get them to like us.
>>30866559>Deal.>>30866586Did you miss the part where Rochelle's now a killer, and Cole and Julie have been killing just to stay alive?
>>30866617you don't think he'll screw us over when it's all said and done?He's not doing this to be nice, he's doing this in the hopes of two enemies taking themselves out or badly weakening themselves.
>>30866559>No DealNope, this would basically just be us trading one enemy for another.We don't need to be focusing on jumping headlong into Idolwars just yet
>>30866559>Other"I would like to scout out this other company before, we can come to an agreement."
>>30866634Imagine his surprise when we don't kill ourselves trying to make a move on Zenith.
>>30866634Yeah, I agree with this. This deal seems too shitty to say yes at the moment. Either make to better or delay accepting it.
>>30866559>I don't think I'm in liberty to make that kind of decisions on my own. Let me run it through my boss.
>>30866559>No DealSo we get into a brawl with Zenith, Rose reaps the benefits, and we'll have nothing but a nebulous "favor" to show for it? Nah, no thanks.
>>30866634So goddamit we'll play the role of a pawn. Fact is, we don't have many friends in this town--and I wouldn't mind making a few new friends. This'll do us a lot of good down the road--look at is as paying forward on a favor.
>>30866652Imagine his surprise that we team up with Zenith to take his group down.
>>30866621Heck no, and they'd do it. However, right now there's a clear distinction between "doing bad things to bad people" and "doing bad things to (potentially) good people". This job would cross that line.Rochelle killed a person who was just as armed as she was, Julie had her whole thing as being the cop of the Tombs, and Cole basically just scared everyone off.
>>30866669Wasn't that one of the stratagems? Get an enemy to attack another enemy.
>>30866559>>Other"I'll let you know by tomorrow. This is something big enough I'll have to run by The Boss - and I'm holding the girls up. Is that soon enough for you? "
>>30866674Or he just fucks us and laughs as he rolls in all this uncontested District 2 dosh.We can afford to play the field a bit and get a handle on the other companies before we start openly declaring allies and enemies. He's literally the first person from another Idol group we've interacted with ever.
>>30866675How is that at all preferable?You don't think Zenith is trying to scam their way into killing all of De Rosa's girls?The fuck.
>>30866559>>DealThis isn't a bad idea.We don't have to attack their idols directly - we just have to bust up their base and/or assets to make them reconsider branching out there.and our riot girl + police doggy makes assaulting/breaching+clearing and nonlethal takedowns possibleI think we could pull it off.This is a MAJOR opportunity to make a friend in the Big Leagues.and turning him DOWN may make him an enemy again.
>>30866681Everyone in...uh. Neo-Future-Wherever-We-Are is shades of bad or grey. There's no "good," people in the city.If you think we're any exception: We just had teenagers kill a warehouse full of people because someone with money asked us to in return for cash.Quit prechin', preacher.
>>30866706But that's the thing, they AREN'T in the big leagues.
>>30866698>>30866702Yes, I say we do our research on both idol groups first. I want to try to play both groups against each other and then backstab DeRosa when convenient.
>>30866728they're bigger than us, so that makes them big time.District 2 is pretty big.
>>30866681We don't have to kill them--we just have to--and I'm paraphrasing here--take them out of the game permanently. While straight-up killing is good, unless we had the right tools--like, I don't know, a massive railgun that could launch HE shells from 4 miles away at hitscan speeds--is incredibly finicky and very complicated if you want to do it clean and you want to do it right.We just need to arrange for a few...accidents to occur. Whether that be a broken leg during practicing a routine or a careless forklift driver smashing someone's kneecap or hot grease splashing on someone's body is up in the air. With our background, I'm sure we can get pretty creative in engineering a few...accidents.
>>30866706>>30866691Counternegotiate - show our savvy off."Sounds an awful lot like you want me to do your heavy lifting for you, and scope out MY idols combat skills.""I'd want to see your idols in action. My counter offer is a teamup - "(remind me - did he say something about not being able to act overtly against zenith?)Keep in mind that he has excellent combat idols, and using this favor to secure OUR district from rival companies - whom we have JUST earned the attention of - is gonna be crucial to avoiding getting our shit stomped in.Clover has survived by being under the radar - and having an on-call favor to defend our territory is gonna let us keep up that off-the-road charm.
>>30866594She's whatever you want her to be.
>>30866728Uh, yeah, isn't derosa one of the top idol companies?
>>30866743Okay, she's a level 9 Dark Elf Ranger armed with a Longbow of Accuracy +2.
>>30866742He SAYS he has excellent combat idols.I also claim that my scrotum tastes like raspberry and chocolate.Neither of these are substantiated claims.
>>30866756They're the top one in district 2 IIRC
>>30866756He is big but not hugeBig enough to cause us lots of troubles anyway
>>30866740We don't have to be that drastic. Idol groups work on their reputation. We just have to engineer a few disastrous performances, spread a few rumors, have a couple proxy attacks by rabid fanbases.
>>30866559Other - ask Boss.>>30866743SKY PIRATES ASSEMBLE!!!!!!
>>30866740We don't actually have to kill them, tho. He just wants zenith's operations suspended in district 2 - when attacking a company, its about damaging assets and timetables and monetary budgets.We wouldn't have to kill anyone - and that may make us a giant target for retribution anyway - but doing something simple like pulling the firealarm in their building, then leveling it with the railgun may do the trick.we're in D2 anyway, so this is kind of a threat to US also.>>30866767Point to bring up - but we could verify that with an internet search, since he's an established idoleer.
>>30866767Would someone really do that? Just go out in the entertainment business world and tell lies? Inconceivable, impossible, downright absurd.
>>30866559"Sorry, but I'm afraid I can't accept. At least right now." You shrug. "It's something that I'd have to pass by my boss.""My my, I never took you to be so spineless, Producer." DeRosa chuckles. "Men like us are hired for the sole reason of making judgement calls. Otherwise, what's the point? Bah, I'm not even interested anymore. Perhaps we'll see each other again, or maybe not."DeRosa then gives a mirthful smile and wave before disappearing down the stairwell. You were half expecting to get ambushed, but nothing happened. You guess there was a least some honor between producers."So what happened?" Jenner asks once you return to the van."Nothing really." You sigh. "Just another idol company trying to put their feelers into us.""Ah, I see." Jenner nods. "Rose Entertainment?""How do you know?""DeRosa is one of the more memorable figures in the business." Jenner shrugs. "I'll tell you about it if we have the time."With that, the drive back to the office is a rather uneventful one. You make a few calls ahead to a few late night restaurants that are willing to deliver. You suspect the girls were going to go through a LOT of food tonight."So, you think we can hire some extra staff?""Possibly. Maybe even another idol." Jenner nods. "I'll get the details sorted out once we get back to the office."No sooner than she says that when the van pulls into the parking garage. The girls immediately pile out and rush upstairs, kidnapping a surprised Falynn along the way. Jenner makes her way to your office, presumably to take care of the work. Meanwhile, you see that the light to Lillith's office was still on. You wonder what she could possibly be doing here so late.>Go with the girls.>Go to your office.>Go check on Lillith.>Other
>>30866796>idoleerI think you mean, maybe...idolmaster?
>>30866815>Go ambush Lillith
>>30866815>>Go check on Lillith.if it's to the office I can't be that upset, but this is sort of thought raising and her input would be useful in light of recent events.
>>30866815>Go check on Lillith.Lilith!
>>30866815>>Go to your office.See jenner for the info and check on zenith entertainment.Let the girls celebrate. We've got planning to do.
>>30866815>Go check on Lillith.Might as well see what she is up to.
>>30866815>Go check on Lillith.
>>30866815>>Go check on Lillith.Send her along with the girls.
>>30866815>>Go check on Lillith.Wow, I sure missed a lot. Damn Old Dragonslayer giving me trouble.
>>30866815>>Go check on Lillith.The girls can set up for their sleepover on their own--but why's she still at the office?
>>30866815>>Go to your office.Mine the datastreams for news on the idol company we were told about
>>30866861We can do that after Lilith.
>>30866815>Go check on Lillith.>Maybe even another idolI have to leave early today, so in the event we do that tonight, I'm preemptively casting a hypothetical future vote for Takane should she be offered as an option.I'm trusting you guys not to burn down the office while I'm gone.
>>30866895>I'm trusting you guys not to burn down the office while I'm gone.It's cute when they're so naive.
>>30866895Nah, we'll just use the money to buy the railgun and level the rival's HQ.
>>30866895I rather have more support staff
>>30866895Now that he's gone, the question is: Napalm or Thermite?
>>30866815> Go to your office.
>>30866924Yeah I think fortifying that would be better at this point and maybe once our main 4 become soildified in skills then we can consider a new idol.
>>30866925Why not both?
>>30866815You decide to go check on what Lillith is doing. Walking over, you see her tapping away at her computer. You give a light knock on her door to let you know you're there."Oh, Producer, I didn't notice you were there." Lillith says."Am I intruding?" You ask."Not at all, please come in." Lillith leans back in her seat and rubs her eyes. "Oh my god, it's this late already? The time sure flies...">Ask her what she's doing.>Ask her about Rochelle. >Other
>>30866973>Ask her what she's doing.
>>30866815> Go to your office. Planning time
>>30866973>>Ask her what she's doing.>>Ask her about Rochelle.Both seem important
>>30866973>Ask her what she's doing.>Ask her about Rochelle. Might as well do both.
>>30866973>Ask her about Rochelle.
>>30866973>>Ask her what she's doing.If she's not dealing with Rochelle, it's gotta be important.
>>30866929But we've already got Rin, who is just Chihaya 2.0 minus the unstoppable downward bitch spirals.
>>30866973>>Ask her what she's doing.The heck's keeping her at the office?
>>30866973>Ask her what she's doing.Watcha up to?
>>30866973>>Ask her what she's doing.>>Ask her about Rochelle.
>>30866947But that's it's own can of worms--seeing that people are gonna argue over what staff member we should add on. I still think we need a doctor--a real doctor, not just some Robodoc that can dispense pills all it damn likes.
>>30867006I refuse to accept this.
>>30867028I actually agree hereA doc will be important not just for when our girls are hurt but for keeping them in top shape for performances as well, it should be our next priority
>>30866973>>Ask her what she's doing.>>Ask her about Rochelle.Both seem important.I'm worried about Rochelle
>>30867028I see no issue with that as that's on the top of the list.
>>30867028Actually with a major company bearing down on us, a hacker will be more important quickly.We need to fortify our base.
>>30867082Fortifying pur base is no use of our girls are hurt / deadHacker is definitely second but doc is first
>>30867082Actually, if I remember correctly, Falynn earlier offered to add an electronic warfare module to K-Zwolf. I wonder how much would that cost?
>>30867101Hurt dead only comes in if we get a combat mission.A normal idolling mission should be safe. A doc is a reactive cure, a hacker is preventive. Say someone hacks into our base, finds out our mission itenary and decides to crash it.
>>30867153Yeah, I agree with this.
>>30866973"What exactly have you been doing all this time?" You ask."Oh, just catching up with some old friends of mine." Lillith shrugs. "A few other ex-Idols that I used to work with. We like to keep in touch every now and then. Keeps us sane.""Ah." You nod. You remember Lillith didn't particularly enjoy her time as an idol. "Anyways, how's Rochelle been doing? She's been pretty shaken up after her first mission and I recommended she talk to you.""And I'm glad you did." Lillith nods. "It's typical PTSD. Killing another human being is not something Rochelle has been accustomed to. However, she's dealing with it rather well, I suspect due to her semi-military background.""I see." You nod. "Anything serious?""She just needs positive reinforcement that what she's doing is right, or for a good cause. Otherwise she'll begin to question herself and her purpose.""I see...""But, considering you're her Producer, I don't foresee any serious problems." Lillith grins. "You really seem to care about them, after all.">Of course, I'm their producer, after all.>Of course. I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all.>Other
I wonder if Falynn can be upgraded, if you know what I mean.Graduate level vs high school dropout
>>30867153Injuries can also come from accidents or sickness.I agree a hacker is important but I rather have a doctor
>>30867168>Of course, I'm their producer, after all.You won't trap me this easily, Merc.
>>30867168>>Of course. I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all.
>>30867168>>Of course. I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all. Or little sisters that I never had.
>>30867168not even voting on this one...
>>30867168>Other"Of course, you expected less of me?"
>>30867168>>Of course, I'm their producer, after all.but more importantly I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all.
>>30867168>Of course, I'm their producer, after all.
>>30867168>>OtherOf course, they are my fetish.
>>30867168>OtherI'm just wondering. I encountered another producer today. Do other producers consider their girls like their daughters? Every time we will have to crush other idol groups, will it be like crushing their daughter's dreams in their eyes? The thought is very sobering.
>>30867210Nope.Lilth's didnt care at all.
>>30867210Assimilate, assimilate! We'll just absorb them into the fold, if they are not dead. After a little, indoctrination.
>>30867168>Of course. I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all.Let's not even lie to ourselves, we've been going full father-mode on all accounts. May as well just be honest about it.
>>30867153Hurt and dead are quite possible results of other agencies attacking us or us rolling badly on thingsEasy enough to keep our sensitive stuff off the network for now then get a hacker as soon as we can
>>30867168>>Of course, I'm their producer, after all.LIE LIE THROUGH YOUR TEETH! THAT DEEP DOWN YOU THINK OF THEM AS YOUR DAUTHEREUS
>>30867232Im thinking we should make it official for cole and julie.Their crestfallen epression after rin and Rochelle started talking of parents made me sad.
>>30867254...yes...oh god yes... Adoption plans is a go!
>>30867168>Of course, I am their producer and they are my team, that makes them family
>>30867254>>30867269And then bad rolls kill them. /wrists+quest
>Of course. I consider them all surrogate daughters, after all.>>30867222'Assimilate' is an unpleasant term. Now, 'adopting' is more like it. More daughterus!
>>30867269>>30867254I rather act like their father figure or family.Papers don't mean a thing
>>30867254>>30867269You don't think there's a single conflict of interest in a producing producing their own children at an idol farm?
>>30867220I understand that there will be assholes. But there also maybe others like us, and we will have to fight them, through our daughters.
>>30867296If it makes money, it works. This is delta city.
>>30867302What sort of mental gymnastics are you doing there? P-san's an asshole.Unless you're saying his body count from (at least) three theaters of war is totes normal.
>>30867168"Of course. I sort of consider them all to be my surrogate daughters, after all." You grin."Ah, not surprising, from a man with no family of his own.""Are you trying to analyze me?" You raise an eyebrow."Oh, no, just an observation." Lilith shakes her head and blushes a bit. "Truth be told, I'm actually quite jealous. I wish I had a producer as nice as you back when I was an idol. Maybe things would have turned out differently.""Maybe." You nod. "Anyways, I should be going." Lillith gets up and starts packing up her things. "I'll see you tomorrow, Producer."And just like that, Lillith exits her office, leaving you alone once again.>Check in on the girls.>Check in on Jenner.>Check in on the Boss>Other
>>30867334>>Check in on Jenner.Info on the opposition.
>>30867334>Check in on the BossWe haven't heard from him for a while.

>>30867334>Check in on the Boss
>>30867379>Hey babe>how bout a totally mother/father date
>>30867334You decide to return to your office to check on Jenner. After all, you had some work to do organizing your company's future affairs. A producer's job was never over."Ah, Producer, just in time." Jenner says, handing you a phone. "We just received call just now. A potential sponsor, I believe.""Already?" You blink."With the kind of performance Rin just gave, are you really surprised?" "I guess not." You sigh as you put the phone to your ear. "Hello?""HEY! Is this that Producer I've been hearing so much about?!?" You hear a very hyper and cheerful voice burst through your ear. "Um, yes, I'm the Producer." You wince."Great! My name's Jack, CEO of Hyperion Corporation. You know, I've been thinking of ways to improve my company's image, and lo and behold, when I turn on the TV, I see your idols, and then it came to me! Now, I just LOVED that song, 'No Brand Girls', so how would you like to have an actual brand?!""Um, what?""SPONSORSHIPS, MAN! SPONSORSHIPS! I'm offering to sponsor your company!""Well, that's mighty nice." You blink. "But... what exactly does your corporation do again?""Holy shit, you don't know? Well, Hyperion is one of the most profitable mining companies in the world!""Ah...." You nod. "And what exactly are you offering?""Well, I was thinking that whatever job you get paid for, we'll add another $2000 to whatever you're being paid. And, to show my good faith, I'll even throw in another $5000 as a thank you for signing on! What do you say?">Yes>No>I'll think on it.>Other
>>30867422Can we get a doc for the company first? I'm sure we're going to need it after asking Jenner that.
>>30867502>I'll think on it.But closer to yes than no at this point. Give me a day.
>>30867502>My name's Jack, CEO of Hyperion Corporation.Oh bloody hell nonono.
>>30867502>I'll think on it."Sound like a really great offer, and I like it a lot. Let me do my due diligence and make sure everything is set before I give the formal go ahead. Don't want to encounter any future problems because we missed something."
>>30867502>YesAhahaha yes. Also, I DO NOT want this man as an enemy.
>>30867529Oh, come on. Jack wasn't that bad.>>30867555And this guy has a point too.
>>30867502>>I'll think on it.I really want to say yes but I want information on Hyperion before making a final decision.I really, really want to say yes.
>>30867502>I'll think on it.very generous, a little too generous.. We need more information from other sources before we do this.
>>30867502>YesI do not want Handsome Fucking Jack as an enemy.
>>30867555Why not? Just get some vault-hunting murder-hobos.
>>30867571>Oh, come on. Jack wasn't that bad.He's such a backstabbing bastard it's a miracle he hasn't backstabbed himself accidentally. I want to keep far, far away from him.
>>30867502>>OtherI'm inclined to say yes, but I want to go into details before we get serious.Basically try to work it out, but we reserve the right to refuse anything that might go against what's best for the girls and aren't exclusive unless he wants to shell out a hell of a lot more. Also work, put in that our price goes up as our popularity does. Pretty basic stuff.
>>30867581But do we have any of those on hand. That can be hired on the cheap.Like as in free.
>>30867581We sadly do not have Vault Hunter class plot shields or loot.
>>30867593Quick, find me 4 vault hunters with attitude. >>30867598>>30867607Idk, ask Marcus if he knows of any.
>>30867502>YesThat deal is amazing. Shame we can't get a hold on Torgue though....Wait, Tiny Tina idol?
>>30867502"Very tempting offer, Mr Jack, but I can't accept it until I've looked up some info on your company."Can't have a sponsorship scandal come up due to our being associated with unethical businesses.
>>30867629>...Wait, Tiny Tina idol?Dear gods.MAKE IT HAPPEN!>>30867598Gotta ask Marcus. If anyone knows people who ask little questions and Get Things Done, he does.
>>30867635Don't put it in those words. Say that you want to say yes, but will have to make sure all the details are ironed out. Then later on, say cannot sign deal because of an unfortunate technicality.
>>30867502might have made the Border lands references to obvious.
>>30867502>well I say yes Mr Jack but I don't have the final word, I have to put it past the boss as a formality but I don't think he will decline so let me get his approval and we will start the paper work
>>30867664As if Marcus wasn't?
>>30867647So if we get some vault hunters, I vote for Lilith, Maya, and Gaige.>>30867664If your haven't noticed, this game started out with a half-a-dozen references
>>30867664Really now. We're already dealing with Marcus Ammunitions, how much more obvious can it get?
>>30867502>Hyperion>saying yesSorry Handsome Jack, no dice.
>>30867684Okay, what about these guys?
>>30867696Best fucking boss ever
>>30867696Was Atlas the ones who made awesome revolvers? I forget. If so Yes.
>>30867716Shit, wrong image.
>>30867727Every line this guy had was great.
>>30867502"It sounds like a deal Mr...""Ha! Just call me Jack! Technically, it would be Mr. Jack, since I legally changed my first name to Handsome! Heheheh, but I'm sure the story about that would bore you to death! Anyways, I'll have my VP Mr. Blake handle the rest!"There's suddenly a loud CLICK as your call is transferred."Good evening, Mr. Producer, I am Mr. Blake, Vice President of the Hyperion Corporation." You hear a stuffy old British voice say in a rather tired tone. "As per your agreement with Mr. Jack, $5000 is being wired to your account. The only conditions are that you must prominently display our sponsorship, and we reserve the right to request your idols appear in Hyperion promotional materials.""That sounds acceptable." You nod. It was all standard procedure for sponsorships."Mr. Jack is also thinking of organizing his own events to host your idols." Blake continues. "We will contact you again once details have been sorted out. You will of course be compensated accordingly.""Um thanks.""Have a good evening, Mr. Producer."A final CLICK signifies that the call has ended."Well, that was something." You whistle."With that sponsorship money...." Jenner blinks. "We can actually double our recruitment. Two support staff and two idols.""Really?""Well, since we have a more secure source of income, I'm confident that we can support it.>Let's look at support staff first.>Let's look at potential idols, first.>Other
I think we should collect sponsorships from the most villainous, evil corporations around. Umbrella, Cyberdyne, Eurocorp, Weyland-Yutani, OCP, Jinteki, Aztechnology, that sort of thing.
>>30867749>>Let's look at support staff first.Doctor and hacker.No question.
>>30867749>Let's look at support staff first.

>>30867749>Let's look at potential idols, first.>>30867771The tombs.I wonder if we can finally buy that Railgun marcus offered. Or ask Hyperion if they have one we can promote.
>>30867749>Let's look at potential idols, first.Idorus, idorus.
>>30867749>Let's look at support staff first.Get bit more of the infrastructure built first before bringing in more girls.
>>30867781I'm actually wondering if we should figure out if our combat idols are cool with getting augs. Seems like that would be something coming up sooner so just testing the waters might be good.
>>30867749>>Let's look at support staff first.
>>30867813Bah "sooner or later".
>>30867749>>Let's look at support staff first.>Otherbring up that list of purchases, like humvees and armor from the last thread where we went 'oh god why didn't we get anyof these things'
>>30867813There was that girl in the tomb that had a mechanical arm...I also wonder if Hyperion makes power armor too?
>>30867821Seconding. Actually, how about a list of all the things we can spend money on, including HQ upgrades and stuff for K-zwolf.
>>30867821Yup Yup Yup
>>30867764Seconding We need hacker and doc
>>30867821Check out the Hyperion line as well. I think we should get a company discount, now being sponsored by them.I would love to get some high-quality hyperion arms.
>>30867749"We could use some more support staff." You say. "What do we still need?""Well...">Choose 2>Doctor>Hacker>Driver>Accountant
>>30867865>Driver (also something for them to drive)>Accountant (making money, now we need to keep track of it)
>>30867865>Doctor>HackerStill want a comprehensive purchase list, after this.
>>30867865>Hacker>AccountantDoctor can wait.
>>30867891>Doctor can wait.If there's anything that can wait it's a beancounter. That job is the most easy to automate as long as our finances are clean and we don't have anything to hide.
>>30867864>I would love to get some high-quality hyperion arms.Uh.Most of those suck tho.You know who I'd like to see a sponsorship from?World Aeronautics and RoboticsThese guys.
>>30867865>Hacker.Doctor's gonna be -expensive-. An accountant would be the smart play.
>>30867907Meh, actually change mine to doctor + hakker I guess. Just my inner jew wanting to maximize sheckles.
>>30867919>Doctor's gonna be -expensive-.And worth every pence if one of our idols has life-threatening wounds.
>>30867913I once had a purple smg. It was my favorite gun.
>>30867865"Given the situations we might find ourselves in the near future, I think a doctor and hacker would be wise investments." You say."I'll get on that right away." Jenner nods. "As for the idols, I recommend one more combat idol and another performance idol.""Yeah, I don't think we can have Rin keep shouldering the whole burden." You nod. "But let's take care of the combat idol first.""Okay, so I think we should go searching for a new one again, unless you've already got one in mind?">Actually, I do.>No, not really.>Other
>>30867936That's one good Hyperion gun. Most of 'em suck.

>>30867944>>No, not reallyDo you have someone in mind?
>>30867944>>Other"They're in high demand - but we just got a LOT of publicity. We can start screening signups"
>>30867974Yeah, let's hold some auditions. It'll be fun!
>>30867960>>30867944> Actually, I doMore street kids with nothing to lose and everything to gain.
>>30867944Producer, did we get any levelups from this?our idols ROCKED it tonight.And Rin really needs that 'i skillup faster' talent to pwn the big leagues
>>30867974>>30867981Like what, a death tournament in the tombs?
>>30867944>>Other"Maybe. That girl with the cybernetic arm from the Tombs interests me but if you have a few other candidates on file, I'd like to see them as well."
>>30867997We can televise it and plaster Hyperion and Marcus logos everywhere
>>30867997Rather send our very own street kids to go looking for potentials, in the slums and tombs. They been around and should know local talent and rumor.>>30867990
>>30868007And by "death tournament" we mean "bikini mud wrestling".
>>30867997What if we simply create an obstacle course? Or hell, we've still got buddies from our time in the service, right? What if we ask if we could borrow some of their training facilities for a day?
>>30868013Actually, this is a pretty good idea. Get more scary tomb girls on our security.
>>30868007Why not have Marcus as a color commentator alongside some Hyperion spokeshole and having both shill out their services and products?
>>30868030I really like this idea but I would say wait until our company is well established.
>>30868025C'mon, it'll get us ALL the publicity. And monetary problems too, probably.
>>30868015Yeah, and televise it. American Idol meets live-fire combat drill. Have the audience vote, then rig the vote so whoever we want to pick wins. All of it sponsored by Hyperion.
>>30868006Tomb Cybernetics girl really, really, really interests me. Like how she got them and how she ended up there.
>>30868027Thats not secure. Thats an invitation to loot and scavenge.We should see if any of our idols have any friends that are idol materialThere's also our contacts in the football team/school/cole's fanboy gangs.
>>30868044If she could sing as well as kick ass, well you know the public would eat up any sob story she has in that regard.
>>30867944"No, not really." You shake your head. "You have any ideas?""A few, actually." Jenner says.>SNIPER>TECHNICIAN>DEMOGIRL>CYBORG

>>30868069>DEMOGIRLWHAT CAN WE BLOW UP?

>>30868069>TECHNICIAN>CYBORGEither of these are fine.
>>30868069"Lets hear em. Give us the basics."I don't care about your tomb cyberneticsgirl when there are SO MANY OTHER options.Like The Major. Or Raiden. You just KNOW we want booby raiden now. And Herr Doctor as our, well, doktor.>>30868075Fuck this loli invasion gearbox fanwank.>>30868069I wanna hear the ideas/personell files first.However: Cyborg or Technician. We're going fairly techheavy now, what with our gear, robodog, and falyn - its an edge we can develop.
>>30868069Can we get some sample profiles from each category?Failing that, cyborg.
>>30868099>>30868102 Mah niggas!>>30868069Tech or cyber
>>30868069>>CYBORG>DEMOGIRLbut I would like a profile for each one
>>30868102>Fuck this loli invasion gearbox fanwank.Oh come on. What did you expect?
>>30868069>>SNIPERWe have 2 fronts, a center.And backliner would round out our team.
>>30868127That is..... kind of frighteningly good logicRin is noncombat tho.What we need is a Lead from the Front inspiring/warrior type, though - some of our 'combat' idols aren't of the combat MENTALITY - we need someone who can kick ass, and keep our girls in the game.Sargeant mao, our old army buddy...
>>30868102Also the Producer is augumented, so we can use that shared experience to foster loyalty.>>30868127I could go for a cyborg sniper with eye augs that can compensate for wind and enable accurate fire with an antitank rifle from a moving helicopter, like Saito from Section 9.
>>30868156I've got one phrase i'm just gonna leave here. Spoilers, because its too damn beautiful. Fuchikoma Idol.
>>30868151Two of the girls are a bit over-eager in combat in their own way. Rochelle is actually sane compared to them.
>>30868156But when are we going to use something like that? If recall Idol vs Idol missions tend toward no lethal take down.
>>30868151Of course rin is non-combat.I meant rochelle is our combat center.
>>30868156>I could go for a cyborg sniper with eye augs that can compensate for wind and enable accurate fire with an antitank rifle from a moving helicopter, like Saito from Section 9.You know, this has always been Cyberpunk Idol quest, but we haven't had a lot of Cyber to put in our punks.I really wanna see some more deetails on Jenner's Suggestions before deciding, but......Cyborg's got my vote>>30868171>over-eager in combatSounds like another good reason for a leader type! sometimes, you need restraint.
>>30868167>Fuchikoma Idol.Fucking Lol
>>30868183I was suggesting Rochelle is the best candidate for a field leader. Still, an officer or NCO type idol is going to be hard to come by.
>>30868069"You know, I think a combat cyborg could really help round out our team." You say."Well, the problem is that there really aren't that many teenaged cyborgs, and even fewer interested in the idol business." Jenner points out."Well, what about that girl with the augmetic arm and leg we saw last time in the Tombs? Maybe we can try recruiting her?""Well, that would involve having to go BACK to the Tombs." Jenner frowns. "After the first time, I'm not looking forward to going back.">It'll be worth it.>On second thought, yeah, it's probably too dangerous.>Other
>>30868199>On second thought, yeah, it's probably too dangerous.
>>30868199>It'll be worth it.We have idols with experience in the tombs, we'll be fine.
>>30868199>>It'll be worth it.
>>30868199>>OtherWe can ask cole and julie how she is first.
>>30868199"Do you have any other potentials on file? Let's have a look at them first."
>>30868199"While its dangerous, I think we could make an excursion out of us. Our girls need more combat experience - and a trip with nonlethal solutions to get Rochelle's head back in the game - may do us some good
>>30868199>It'll be worth it.>OtherWe'll bring the combat idols with us. Say hi to old friends, or enemies.
>>30868199>>It'll be worth it.Let's pile up into the van, everyone!By the way, we really should upgrade this thing. Can't we just grab a milsurp Humvee from Marc's catalog?
>>30868199>It'll be worth it.If it ain't broke don't fix it.
>>30868199>It'll be worth it.
>>30867821>'oh god why didn't we get anyof these things'>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30576792/HUMVEE - 300Despite having been declared obsolete and phased out of the US Armed Forces, the venerable Humvee has seen second life breathed into it as cheap military surplus.

However, it also contains pockets to insert armored ballistic plates to grant an improved amount of protection.CARAPACE ARMOR - 1000Carapace armor is essentially a ballistic vest designed to cover the whole body instead of the center of mass, adding improved protection to extremities and the head.EXTRA ARMOR UPGRADE KIT - 500Improves the armor rating of a single vehicle.

>>30868227The milsup vehicle is a trap.With our idol numbers, we're better off getting the armoured suv. Seats 8, armoured and looks normal.

>>30868266>I wanna pimp my ride.>>30868245has a point about getting a better ride first.Make a battle limo happen. Its got room for a full team inside by default!
>>30868266So you wanna be a player?
>>30868245We can just paint our hummer in cheerful idol colors to look "normal".

>>30868285No.Nononono.Have you SEEN Shepard trying to dance? No amount of training will ever fix that.
>>30868285Who is literally one-of-a-kind.
>>30868297Get shep a sniper and that can be fixed.
>>30868293>Show off the whole pastebin instead:>http://pastebin.com/Jqs7RtTPI didn't know where it was, since its not linked in OP
>>30868323Could have clt-f "pastebin"
>>30868293>>30868323Shouldn't this list be expanded now that Marcus got his shipment back?
>>30868328Truth, and anothe reason not to blow our money
>>30868328Probably but I dont think his shipment comes with more vehicles though, which is what we're discussing.
>>30868199"Come on, it'll be worth it!" You grin. "Besides, we got Julie and Cole to help us out, now. They know the area, and at the very least, can intimidate everybody else into not bothering use.""True..." Jenner sighs. "But let's put that off till the morning. Now our performance Idol...">PRINCESS: Well mannered and regal. Princess-type idols rely on the barriers they set up between themselves and the "commoners" in order to create an air of mystery around them, which makes them more appealing in a way.>HAUGHTY: Haughty idols, or S-Idols in some circles, specialize in demeaning their audience and acting superior to them in every way. Naturally attracts "Ms", which can be far more common than one thinks. However, non-Ms may find her behavior off putting.>YOUNG: Sometimes idol companies like to recruit idols who are younger than normal, sometimes as low as middle school age. While obviously his puts them under a lot more scrutiny, younger idols do have a certain appeal older idols lack. Younger idols are particularly popular among older audiences and those of a similar age group. >Other
>>30868330The van is most definitely not bulletproof.I think a vehicle upgrade is definitely warranted.And even after we get the suv, we can keep the van as a spare utility vessel after uparmoring it.

>>30868348Hmm, selecting our performance idol. Rin is good, but we need to go for a theme here. So far, Cole is the most popular of our group, appealing to the delinquent masses. We need a performance that can play off her, so I say:>BAD GIRL
>>30868348>>PRINCESS: Well mannered and regal. Princess-type idols rely on the barriers they set up between themselves and the "commoners" in order to create an air of mystery around them, which makes them more appealing in a way.We need someone that can demand attention--someone who grabs the headlines with a fiercer stranglehold than Jason strangling a slutty camp counselor This sounds right up our alley.

>>30868348I'm not sure a princess is fitting to our underdog image, and we have people with attitude already. Not a big loli fan, so how about...OTHER: A slightly eccentric, upbeat and cheerful idol type? Sort of Alanis Morisette?
>>30868358>>30868359>>30868360A princess will cause huge tension within the group, considering the "commoner" background of most of our idols. >other
>>30868405Supporting this 100% to the max extreme.
>>30868415Exactly. I dislike the 1st two. Ergo Young.
>>30868348>PRINCESS: Well mannered and regal. Princess-type idols rely on the barriers they set up between themselves and the "commoners" in order to create an air of mystery around them, which makes them more appealing in a way.Fuck yeah, hime moe.
>>30868415Depends on the type of princess.A moon princess would definitely be ok with everyone while still being all elegant.
>>30868428That's what "other," is for.You might want to fuck yayaoi, but please don't.
>>30868405>>30868415>>30868420>>30868428Yeah, agree with these. Princess will not fit our image, or get along well with our other idols. We need a performance idol that will fit our theme.
>>30868436I don't even know what a "yayaoi" is. Just sounds like yay yaoi to me.
>>30868415>A princess will cause huge tension within the group, considering the "commoner" background of most of our idols.Big Fucking Deal here.We do NOT want to promote interparty tension.No no no and furthermore hell no.>>30868399>I meant we purchase the suv and keep the van as a support vehicle after uparmoring it.Thats actaully pretty acceptable>>30868428We do NOT want to appeal to the pedo-crowds, do we?Going for Young is ~inviting~ the parazzi more than getting on TV didGetting princess is like asking for trouble within the team.The only other option is Other. Merc is TESTING us to fit in another thing that fits OUR style, not his plaino cookie cutter choices.And of the Other choices...>>30868405I think this takes the cake for top of the pick.Though, I think, IC, we should talk with jenner about our choices and reasoning - she'll probably have good counterpoints.Merc, can you make that conversation happen?
>>30868405Changing my vote from >>30868359 to this.
>>30868428Yes, because there's absolutely nothing that can go wrong when you expose an impressionable pre-teen to the live fast, die young, party hard world of music, touring, and accessibility to any sort of pleasures available.
>>30868478You forgot gang warfare.
>>30868478Which is why all three choices are not very good and we should go for Punk like the others suggested.
>>30868478A photo of Amanda Bynes might've been more poignant.
>>30868348If its a goth girl, theres only one choice.Yesss.
>>30868493that's not what goth/punk means at all, bro.
>>30868474Then why don't you delete the original post.Oh right. You can't. You're not me. You're not only an impostor, you're a scumbag for trying to steal votes towards your pet project.
>>30868493I don't like Goth. Still doesn't fit our image very well.Punk works much better.
>>30868478And it is significantly better if they are a few years older, a la the rest of our girls. And since when have we been okay with any of them doing that kinda shit?
>>30868503Dude...Read carefully. The post after from is his own post.Hes supporting your post...
>>30868503bro, pretty sure he meant the opposite.as in, he's supporting your idea.
>>30868503Are… are you retarded?
>>30868348"Hmmm, maybe we could go with somebody a little more Punk or Gothy? I feel we need somebody who can be a more effective foil to Rin." You suggest."Hmmmm, you do have a point there. I'll see what I can find." She says. "I'll probably have something for you in the morning."Man, now that just reminds you how damn tired you are. "I suggest you get some rest Producer." Jenner says, as if she's been reading your mind. "I can take care of things here.""Thanks, Jenner.""It's the least I can do."Well, while you did want to see how that little sleepover was going, you just didn't have the energy to. At least you'd be able to see the aftermath, though. That would be an interesting sight to see...>And that's it for tonight! We'll continue things on Tuesday to make up for the late start! Also, don't forget that Magical Girl Hunter is on Sunday, and PJ Witches on Friday!

It's nice to know that the girl we saw in the Tombs isn't going to be left behind.
