You’re hunkered down in the ruins of an old apartment complex, surrounded by the blast-shadows of its previous inhabitants. Your ribs are healing quickly, even after the thorough beating you put them through, and your legs are starting to feel sure enough to run on (or, at least, to walk very rapidly on). And there’s someone behind you. Nobody could blame you for tensing up. Or for the claws that scrape their way through the flesh at the tips of your fingers. You’ve been though a lot in the past week. You sniff the air. Scent’s not familiar. Sweat, wax, canned beef, male. It’s not someone you know, or someone you don’t want to know. Shifting awkwardly, you glance into the apartment beside you. Your eyes adjust to the dark quickly and you catch the faintest traces of movement in the remnants of the living room. Shallow, tiny breaths, rising and falling under the cover of a blanket. You remember what gang told you earlier. Scar’s a busy place now, apparently.>Hunger Level: 5>Current Funds: $0.00>Present Time: Christmas Day – Exact Time Unknown>[ ] Investigate.>[ ] Not your business, leave the guy alone.>[ ] “Hey?

>>31201740McCoy is currently enjoying a nice evening in the Xavier Institute. A cup of brandy rests in one paw, while, in the other, is clutched a brand new copy of Stuart Clark's Vanities of the Eye, freshly unwrapped from its jolly green coating of Christmas wrapping. He chuckles to himself occasionally, and has failed to notice that one of the students has snuck a Santa hat onto his head.
>>31201799>, and has failed to notice that one of the students has snuck a Santa hat onto his head.Bullshit.He knows, but he doesn't mind it.

See if there's a hand gun on his night stand or something.If he does attack us for some reason we have agility and invisibility on our side. But, talking to him first is OK I guess.
>[X] Investigate.>[X] “Hey? Hello? You don’t mind me being here, right?” Your (mental) finger hovers over the invisibility button. This person could very well be the nicest mutant known to man, but you’re not taking any chances. “Hey?” No answer. “Hello? You don’t mind me being here, right?” For a moment, you note to yourself that this is technically a public space – you’re still in the corridor outside the actual apartments, after all. But you’d probably be pretty perturbed if someone just waltzed into your dumb little subway burrow, which is like twice again as public as this space, so eh. You wait a little while, but there’s no answer. Not even the slightest indication that he heard you – he doesn’t stir, his heart stays level, and he keeps breathing in small, shallow sips of air. Quietly, you pull yourself to your feet, wincing a little as your ribs shift uncomfortably in your chest. They’re not quite healed yet, though you can’t help but notice how much faster the process is going than it ever has. Used to be it took you a full day to shrug off lighter hurts than this one. You step inside, getting a slightly closer look, and notice the head of hazel hair peeping out from under the blanket, its youthful features deep in sleep. Guy’s probably sixteen, maybe seventeen. Not much younger than you. You also can’t help but notice the two broad shapes protruding awkwardly from under the blanket. >[ ] He’s breathing really shallowly. Check if he’s okay.>[ ] Wake him up.

When punisher was 16 he was just a normal kid. I was thinking Angel because the two shapes might be wings. Maybe he'll teach us how to not suck at flying.

Maybe you’re a particularly slight sleeper, but you expect people to wake up when you shout at them.You make your way into the peeling remnants of the living room, turning your nose up a little at the pungent stink that rises up from the carpet. The whole place is damp and loamy, instilling in your mind the impression of somewhere deep underground. “Hey, mister…” You reach out for his shoulder… “You alrigh”– But that’s not his shoulder. Your fingers fall on something soft and feathery, your enhanced sense of touch tracing out the skeletal structure of a broad pair of wings. Damn. You glance down, and for the first time notice the vibrant red feathers strewn across the carpet. Despite your touch, he doesn’t move. He doesn’t even twitch.

On an unrelated note. We should get in touch with that mutant gang, 'the young X-men.' I say we sneak into their headquarters while invisible. Check it out a little.

>>31202459>19>well gud innitScratching the back of your neck, you dimly recall the spartan First Aid classes of your long-faded school years, trying to remember what twelve-year-old you would no doubt have done in this situation. Stumbling a little over your own thoughts, you reach out to check his pulse, before immediately remembering that at this range you can all but feel the steady thrum of blood coursing through his veins. Biting your lip, you place a hand on his forehead, checking for a fever. He’s not abnormally warm – if anything, he’s a little cold. Hypothermia, then? No, he’s not that cold. Maybe there’s something wrong with his wings? You tentatively dragging the blanket off him when your ears reach out and catch the sounds of hurried footsteps drawing closer. You whirl around just in time to see a small, dark-haired girl – fifteen, maybe – bursting her way into the apartment, her eyes wide with fear. In the back of your mind, you register that there’s someone a little ways behind her, too, someone with heavier footsteps. “Hey! Get away from him!” She dashes at you, swinging a skinny fist, but you’re way too fast for her. Almost before you know what you’re doing, you leap up over the winged kid’s prone form, pirouetting through the air and adhering to the wall behind him.>[ ] Explain. >[ ] Invisible.

>>31202528Yea and in all honesty, what's the point? I mean if you've got infiltrators, they'd be much more productive if you actually put them somewhere that they mattered.

If only there was someone cool around to see it, not someone with a knife trying to pin you to the wall. “Hey hey I wasn’t”– Well, she’s not listening. You twist on your palms, the knife sweeping under you, and snap your leg out. Your front toe connects with the hilt of the weapon, and it goes sailing out of her grip. She yelps in pain and clutches her hand, screwing her eyes up. Oh, man, how hard did you hit her? You thought you’d just take the knife out of the equation… Your expression contorting in concern, you hold your hands up in an attempt to be non-threatening, staying stuck to the wall solely by your feet. “Man, are you okay? I didn’t mean to”– There is an almighty sound, like cannonfire over the horizon, and something streaks past her. Too fast to see properly, too fast to – It crashes into you, and in the instant of roaring, breathless pain that follows, you’re suddenly aware that it’s a guy. Some blonde guy, build like a linebacker. He just streaked across the room and slammed you, shoulder first, into the wall you were perched upon. You feel blood streak down your chin, lungs burning and out of breath. For a moment everything goes white, and then black, and then the world drains back into sight, every bone in your body screaming.Your brain works frantically. His shoulder’s still pinning you to the wall, and he’s girding himself against the floor.

Rolled 1no crackbitch here
>>31203737>modified 22>gut gutIt takes every inch of self-control in your possession to keep your finger off the invisibility button. You tell yourself that even if things keep going sour, that you can’t let these people know more of what you can do – they’ve already seen half your arsenal in action. You’re not eager for every mutant in the scar to be whispering about “some invisible lizard-looking guy that tried ‘ta shank my bud in his sleep”. “Look,” You wheeze it out. God, that guy hit you like a ton of bricks. “I’m not here to hurt anyone. I was just passing by and thought he looked ill or something.” Still twitching slightly on the ground, the guy grits his teeth and glares up at his friend. “Oh my God, Paige. Why’d you attack him?” She looks horrified. You think you can see tiny tears budding at the corners of her eyes. Slowly, she rolls down (eurgh) her skin, and it seems to glue itself back into place. You don’t even want to guess what her power is. “I-I thought he was hurting Josh…” You shrink down against the wall as calm begins to descend, feeling at your ribs. Yep, they’re cracked. Again. When the blonde guy recovers, apologizes profusely, and introduces the girl as his sister, Paige. She notes that he’s Sam – which you pretty much got, thanks – and he, somewhat irritably, interjects with “Samuel”.

I marathoned all 61 threads over the past couple of days and just wanna commend Crusty on his writing and QM-ing. You have done a great job! I especially like the bizzare friendly ominousness you have created around Typhon. And while i dont understand their decisions (turning our stealth lizard elf into fullblown dragon man) I think everyone participating in the thread has done a good job as well.
>>31204113Also, we can hear bloodflow, so by comparing the right and left side, we could try to listen if the bloodflow is irregular even if we have no medical knowhow. Holy shit JJ's senses would make him an amazing doctor if somebody would teach him. If we ever end up at Xavier's we totally need to pick medicine.

>>31204306Oh, but we did. Remember the ship? Pretty sure we saw somebody with wings in there.
>>31204301>>31204327I liked it too but we never got any Kevin-esque powers

>>31204351Yea, vampiric touch is locked out
>>31204327You're right we did. I wonder if Joshua would be willing to give us flying lessons. If he gets better of coarse.
>>31204351We could've with vampiric touch

>>31204351We never made skiing contact with Kevin.
>(1/2)>[X] Ask how he got like this.>[X] Ask if they’ve gotten any medical attention for him.>[X] Ask how long they've been in the scar.After waving off the older brother’s concerns about your ribs, you ask the two of them how in the hell their brother got like this, eyeing the feathers that cluster like streaks of blood about his form. “We’re…” Sam begins, glancing down at his brother, and his tone deflates somewhat. “…we’re not really sure. We found him like this. He’s not hurt or anything, he’s just not responding, like he’s… just really tired or something.” “There was someone running away when we found him.” Interjects his sister. “I thought… I mean, I didn’t see them, so when I saw you, I thought they might’a come back.” Sam nods. “Yeah… whatever this is, it’s something somebody did to him. Like they just sucked all the energy outta him or something. I heard one of Jono’s guys ended up the same way a few days back.” For the moment, you refrain from asking who this Jono person is, and what kind of name is Jono anyhow, to focus on the matter at hand. “Has he gotten any medical attention?” The siblings glance at one another. “Any at all?”
>>31204401Everything is slightly adapted manLike we don't get spidey's string but we get adhesive handsVampiric touch is a close enough draw about
>(2/2)“Well…” Sam breaks the silence. “We can’t exactly get him into a hospital. None of us are registered, so”– “I’m getting him some help.” Interjects Paige, her voice a little more eager now, as if she’s proving a point, almost. Sam furrows his brow. “I’ve got some friends, and they’re gonna get some hospital equipment for us. They’ll… they’ll get us what we need.” You sigh. Well, Sam’s right, they can’t exactly just waltz into a hospital with him. You just hope Paige’s ‘friends’ – and you really get the very distinct impression that these are the kinds of friends you make little quotation marks with your fingers about – come through. “How long’ve you been here? In the scar, I mean?” “Oh.” Sam smiles a little. “Not long. We found our way here a few days after the ship went down.” So they came in with the rest of Creeper’s cargo.

>>31204553I'm actually gonna guess Karl Lycos.
>[X] Ask who ‘Jono’ is.>[X] Ask if there’s anything you can do.“Uh, if you don’t mind me asking…” You’re a little lost in certain stretches of this conversation. Kinda funny how you were here before anyone, but now you’re almost an alien in your own territory. “Who’s Jono?” “Oh, you new or something?” Man… you’re not even gonna answer that. Your bemused stare seems to be fine enough for Sam, though, who continues onward: “He got the Corsairs together. Has everyone running around, picking up whatever they can lift. My opinion? He’s a time bo”– “I didn’t hear you complaining when I got you that chicken.” Says Paige, very pointedly avoiding her brother’s eyes. “Or when Jeb got hurt. Or when we needed some actual winter clothes.” An uncomfortable silence settles between the two. Right. Okay. Family… tensions, and stuff. You can work around this… “So, uh, there anything I can do?”“Weren’t you listening?” Spits Paige, her tone still dripping with the same venom she levelled at her brother. “My friends are taking care of it. We don’t need your”– This time it’s her brother’s turn to interrupt. He claps a hand over her mouth and shoots her the most disapproving of looks. “Sorry about that.” He tries to smile, but it’s tenuous at best. “Still, I… we can’t ask you to trouble yourself over our problems. If you want to help, then… I dunno, just, keep a look out for a guy called Jeb, would you? If you ever run into him, tell him his brother could really use his help right now.” You nod. >[ ] Say goodbye.>[ ] Insert Previous Question.>[ ] Write in.

It’s not far from here.” He nods. “Nice to meet you, JJ. Sorry about… everything.” You shake hands, and make your way toward the exit. Just as you’re about to disappear from their sight, you turn on your heels, the chill of the air reminding you of what day it is. “Merry Christmas, by the way. I hope your brother gets better.” You pause. “And, uh, sorry if I hurt you at all, Paige.” She glances up, looking for a second like she’s about to say something particularly vile, but seems to catch herself before it can come out, her expression softening. “Yeah, you too.” You head out into the snow. Your ribs are feeling better and the bruises have pretty much pressed themselves out of your flesh. Soon enough, you imagine, you’ll be feeling like a brand new man. Or at least a man without cracked ribs.
>(2/2)As you wander aimlessly through the shattered streets of the scar, you consider the silent form of Joshua Guthrie. He smelled fine, he felt fine, there was no strange tick in his pulse or wounds marring his flesh. Were you a doctor, you’d have likely written him a clean bill of health. He just wasn’t waking up. ‘Like they just sucked all the energy outta him’. Sam’s words circulate in your brain, permeating your every thought. For a moment, a dreadful, shadowy iteration of Kevin rises from the miasma of your inner thoughts, its hands shrieking with monstrous hunger, but you push it aside. The guy was drained, not disintegrated.It would appear the scar has some manner of vampire problem. >[ ] Maybe you should just head home. >[ ] Maybe you should track down that Jono guy.>[ ] Maybe you should look for one of the other mutant groups.>[ ] Or for more mutants in general. >[ ] Alternatively, your stomach just growled.

>>31205445He disappeared yes, but he's also some sort of Psychic thing that takes over people. He could have been taking over a dude that ran away after because he's trying to keep a secret and doesn't want us to kick his ass again.
>>31205491or it could just be a disreputable mugga with energy drain powers.We don't know what his deal but we should find out and deal with it appropriately. animal spy network sounding good now....

>[X] Maybe you should just head home. You know what? It’s getting late. Learning how to fly (read: fall stylishly. Well, whatever, being Buzz Lightyear is better than being boring earthbound JJ Green) and getting kicked around by a human cannonball has taken quite the bite out of your Christmas Day. On the edge of the scar, where the clouds seem to tower like silent, bulbous guardians, the faintest smatterings of red are rising to infect the evening. Night-time soon. Vampire-time. For some reason, you can’t help but recall the first time you saw Count Orlok cast his shadow across the screen of your television. You sister tricked you into watching it, and for the next month straight, you could barely stand to be around bald dudes. God she could be such a shit sometimes. A smile tugging your lips, you make your way back to the subway. As you descend the darkened steps into the deep, a strange, alien scent meets you halfway, tickling at the underside of your nostrils. For a moment, you can’t place it, but as you emerge onto the platform, shadows dancing under the touch of flame, you realize that it’s chicken. Roast chicken. Roast. Apparently, Kevin dipped into his personal funds to get you guys a whole bird.
>(2/2)As the evening deepens outside, you sit and eat, the scorched, lumbering corpses of the trains listening in on your chatter. You talk about everything and anything, small things that mean very little. Layla talks about going to see a film – to celebrate, or something – and there is a brief discussion regarding the viability of several titles you’ve never heard of. Kevin jokes about his old art professor while Gaby listens (very) intently, and Layla stumbles her way through an impromptu lesson in Japanese language from Noriko. Somehow, you end up talking about old Godzilla flicks with Lucas, and your mind swivels back to the matter of monsters…“Hey, guys, um, real talk, just for a sec…” You tell them about the vampire. Lucas sort of almost laughs, but you assure him you’re serious. You go on to tell them about the Guthries, when Gaby interjects, raising her hand as though asking permission to speak.“Um, I know a Jeb.” She offers, her voice not much above a whisper. Kevin nods. “Yeah, he hangs out with Borkowski and the other Young X-Men.” Oh. >[ ] Ask them if they’ll introduce you.>[ ] Ask Laura if she’s ever seen anything like Mr. Nosferatu before.>[ ] Hell, ask anyone if there’s a mutant like that in the scar.>[ ] Go back to light talk.>[ ] Write in.

Hopefully they’ll prove that impression wrong. “So, uh…” You don’t want to ruin the mood or anything, but the vampire has its teeth in your brain now, and these guys know more about your new neighbours than you do. “Any of you guys know anyone with… life-sucky powers? Anything like that?” There is some collective head-shaking, before Kevin speaks up. “Well, there’s me.” “C'mon, that's not really” -“Yeah, I know.” He grins lamely and chuckles a bit. “Don’t worry, I’m not Dracula. I’m just saying.” “I am not certain that your mutation is vampiric in nature.” Chimes in Laura, speaking out for what must be the third or fourth time that evening. “As you have progressed to disintegrating non-biological matter, it would be reasonable to assume that you are a highly specialized electrokinetic.” Kevin answers her with a blank stare. She blinks, and clarifies: “I believe you are affecting the electromagnetic bonding that keeps matter interlinked on the molecular scale.” She takes a short sip of water. “So, yes, you are not Dracula.” Huh. “Speaking of mutant-y stuff…” Noriko angles a raised eyebrow in your direction. “A little bird told me you have something to show us.” Layla grins like a tiny maniac. “Yesssssssssss, he does…” >[ ] WINGS.>[ ] Nah guys I’m kinda tired and it hurts my arms and stuff…

"I can fly"
>>31206406Yeah, but his first true taste was face first into a building with cracked ribs.He'll love flying, when he can do it properly.
>>31206406Yeah.But the idea of flying is fucking great, though it's much harder than it looks. At least for the first time flying.
>>31206380well achtually, JJ is more a wyvern since the wings are on/is his arms. Kind of like Smaug from Desolation of Smaug, EVEN THOUGH HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A DRAGON AND NOT A WYVERN
>>31206439It'll get better once we upgrade our wings a bit and can do a vertical take-off.
>>31206293> Wings> "ka-kaw!" I'm Bat-Lizard!
>>31206293>[ ] WINGS.
>>31206458Skyrim dragons are drakes. Drakes generally don't have for-limbs, but instead have wing-hands.
>>31206480>Skyrim dragons are drakes.Dragons.Dragon Age Origins has drakes.
>>31206293>deploy wings>fly straight into subway roof
>>31206293Wait, our wings are skin membrane and Dino feathers right? So we have to take our shirt of so our sleeves don't get in the way right?
>>31206495I could have sworn the 2 dragons in DA:O were actual proper dragons?
>>31206515>were actual proper dragons?You mean like Smaug?
How far can we fly? Can we fly all the way to Felicia Hardy's club? I imagine it would be much faster than walking.
>>31206528You shut your fucking face Peter Jackson.
>>31206535Too much visibility.
>>31206512No feathers. The wings don't connect to JJ's torso. T-shirt sleeves aren't a problem. But, we need to take off any coat or long sleeve shirts.
We totally need a jetpack like this.
>>31206553That's why we have invisibility. Wings don't cancel our other powers out.
>>31206544It's pretty obvious they wanted more a The Return of the King v2 than a faithfully reproduction of the Hobbit. If you are going to fault anything, it should be the multi billion dollar industry that forces producers to shit out the next summer blockbuster.
>>31206553...we can turn invisible. The only moment we wouldn't be is on landing.Let's be honest, the landings are going to suck for a good long while.
>>31206594One day, Anon, when JJ isn't a crackbitch.
>>31206602>Wings don't cancel our other powers out.Yeah it will. Too much physical strain.>>31206612Again, physical strain.
>>31206644Invisibility doesn't turn off every time JJ physically strains himself. It only fails during EXTREME exertions.
>>31206644JJ can still run and shit while invisible, invisibility only fails when he gets his block knocked off.
>>31206699I disagree.My name is not Tim.
>>31206690Or you know,when hes concentrating mainly on flying instead of invisibility.
>>31206644SHADOW FIELD Requires: Level 4 Invisibility. Cost: 2 Normally, JJ’s invisibility fails completely in moments of extreme exertion, physical trauma, or when he activates certain other abilities. This upgrade allows him to function in such situations with a muted form of invisibility – rather than being truly imperceptible, his features are blurred and his exact position becomes unclear, as if he’s being seen through mist.>extreme exertions>extreme
>>31206736>or when he activates certain other abilities.
>>31206753Those abilities have been rather explicate in not being usable at the same time as invisibility.Wings isn't one of them.
>>31206753>of which wings is not one
>>31206753Those abilities explicitly mention that they cancel out invisibility. Dermal armor and Phasing were such powers.
>>31206776>Wings isn't one of them.Are you sure?>>31206786Are you sure?
>>31206803Yeah, we're sure.
>[X] WINGS.You can’t help but grin. Yeah, you guess this is pretty cool. You shrug off your hoodie. Layla grins toothily and nudges Laura, muttering something along the lines of “you like, yah yah?” (Laura’s reply is a baffled stare), and you cough noisily so as to deprive her of the attention she so obviously craves. “So, like…” You stand up, rolling your shoulders. “I can do this now.” Thoughts of fire. Of sweeping, beating leagues. Of the wind howling your ears and the snow gleaming far below. Your bones crackle, distending through your flesh, skin loosening and shifting, stretching out and rethinking its texture. In a matter of seconds, your arms are no longer arms, and you unfurl a pair of vast, leathery wings. Everyone (almost everyone) does their best impression of Keanu Reeves. Laura regards the batlike appendages in silence, before noting that “You are making increasingly less sense.” Well, that’s okay. You go to sleep that night with bright lights circling your dimming mind. You have a scar segregating itself into mutant gangs, a vampire on the loose, an oncoming mob war over a power vacuum you helped create, and the looming question of Typhon. They flicker through the closing mist of sleep, and the world stretches into the gaps between thoughts, the living, the dead, and the long lost, all of them furling gently into one another. A great beast with the wings of a dragon clambers toward the stars, rearing up on the last mantle hanging between dream and reality. It has a hundred heads, some of them staring with green eyes, others nursing neon blue hair, and still others clad in ivory or blurred beyond recognition. Its left hand, enclosing the west, scales wrought from gunmetal and smoke, drowns the world in blood, while its right folds around the east, scaling the great tower standing in the heart of Manhattan, ‘Roxxon Energy’ inscribed across its stones. And you realize something incredible. You can fly.
>>31206803Yes, read the descriptions. http://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhhttp://pastebin.com/zFvxDsKihttp://pastebin.com/JYrcDPPk

FUCKING. METAL,
>>31206911winged flight 2Photosynthesis 1
>>31206952We only have two points
>>31206899Not yet. Anyhow, whether wings disrupt invisibility depends on how much exertion they're doing. If you want to fly fast or make some testing moves that's going to take effort and concentration, especially at first.
why are you idiots banking?geointuitive vision is only a 3 pointer, and we have 3
>>31206828Take out the vamp and cure the other guy, get flying lessons
>>31206911Bank for that sweet spider sense goodness.
>>31206828>“You are making increasingly less sense.”This made me smile.Good thread, Crusty.Bank the point. Senses 5 with its lizard-elf-sense seems increasingly important.
>>31206980But if you want to get from point A to B, there really shoulnd't be a problem, right?
>>31206911We need shadow field.Its the only way were going to use invisibility in a fight properly.But im fine with GEOINTUITIVE first.
>Laura regards the batlike appendages in silence, before noting that “You are making increasingly less sense.” uh oh. better not tell the missus about the draconic breath then.
>>31206983Because we want something more shiney at the moment.
>>31206983We have 2 right now.
>>31206980It surprisingly did not suck
>>31206983We had one point. Add this one and we have two.
>>31206983...we have two points, not three.And even so, I at least am aiming for general senses upgrade before any specific extrapolatives. Can't speak for anyone else.
>>31206980Now for the most important question. Did we fall asleep with Laura wrapped up in our wings?
>>31206911bank. As always crusty, thank you for running this badass quest.
>>31207001Its cool, chicks dig leathery bat wings.... right?
>>31206996At first, while you're still getting used to the specific concerns and exertions of using wings, you'll probably be flickering a lot.But you'll get better at merging your powers.
>>31206911Thanks for running man.Looking forward to the next one.
>>31207037If you had so little faith you clearly weren't reading Bunn's run on Venom.
>>31206911Archive when?And next thread when?
so what are you little Muggoyims banking for?
>>31207070If that is the case I'd probably for shadow field as the next power.Assuming we now have 2 points I'll go for banking.
>>3120712210/10Personally, I still want that JJ sense.
>>31207122Either spider sense or geointuitive vision. But,spider sense cost 4 points and we have never been able to save more than 3 in the life of the quest. So we'll probably go for geo vision.
>>31207122Senses or Geointuitive vision.
>>31207086he only improved when the series moved to Philly
>>31207161Honestly, I'm fine with either, but I'd rather get the spideysense.
>>31206986If we ever get photosynthesis then its really going to wtf her out.
>>31207093Archiving now, I vote for Geointuitive Vision.
>>31207079Thanks for participating. You guys are always a great audience. Thread archived.Also, do we want a vote on X-Point spending?
>>31207223Just bank it.
>>31207223No, why?People have agreed on banking for the majority of votes.
>“He got the Corsairs together. Has everyone running around, picking up whatever they can lift. My opinion? He’s a time bo”– >“I didn’t hear you complaining when I got you that chicken.” Says Paige, very pointedly avoiding her brother’s eyes. “Or when Jeb got hurt. Or when we needed some actual winter clothes.”gotta start taking strides to curb the black market before the 5-0 slap all our shit over this.only six points and we'd never have to bank more than 2 for it at any time. just think about it for a bit.>>31207223yes
Now that I think about it. Sense lvl 5 might be tying one of Crusty's hands behind his back. It would make it almost impossible for him to throw things at us. Any time something unexpected happens people might be like; where were our spidy senses?
>>31207223Thanks for running.Im fine with banking.When will the next thread be?
>>31207235because possible samefagging I suppose. if they really got the majority, then they have nothing to worry about
>>31207223Nah. We've got seven clear votes to bank. Nothing else has more than two.
>>31207223Bank it.When's the next thread, Crusty?
>>31207223Scratch this >>31207250. I just realized we can buy electromagnetic vision.
>>31207268Hmmmm thats an interesting point.
>>31207271Realistically, Saturday. I might be able to surprise you guys with a thread before then, though.
>>31207223I did not wings in the first place because if i knew that if we got them i would have to level them up to level 3 as soon as possible.
>>31207223Wings are tempting but I'd have to say bank.>>31207251The fuck are you talking about... If you're you're one of the druid people I thought that took 8 points.
>>31207268Need it to fight Creeper.He finds out where we are and decides to tke us out himself then we're dead.
>>31207300No we can't.We'd need taserhands 2 first.Sticking with the bank.
>>312073153 for Animal Affinity3 for Photosynthesis1 for Floral affinity 1 for Green Finger
>>31207311Alright, I fully encourage you to surprise us though.
>>31207315>>31207348brain fart on my part,forgot to put in lv1 costs. I apologize
Okay, banking seems to be by far the majority. Into the bank it goes.I'll be be on a little while for questions an' stuff.
>>31207320Not reallyJJ and Laura can both notice him if he is in the vincinity.
>>31207320Actually, would danger sense even work on Creeps? Seems like he would use his powers to prevent us from noticing the warning.
>>31207315>The fuck are you talking about... If you're you're one of the druid people I thought that took 8 points.I remember it going from 8 to 11
>>31207369If we're actively paying attention.I'm not sure our passive senses are enough.
>>31207367so how would level 5 "I can't believe its not spidey sense" work?and would it hamper you in story telling/combat writing?>>31207386it'd cost 11 if we Healing savite (the healing blood thing)not necessary imo
>>31207369Oh shit, duck dive and don't die, Creepers somewhere in the next 15 ft of us.>>31207379Stated multiple times that it would allow us to go toe to toe with Creeper.His powers don't work like that.
>>31207251Imagine if all the druid powers would get bought in the same sessionEverybody in the gang would be like "This is just getting ridiculous."It'll probably never happen though. Still, it's a funny concept to think about.
>>31207367Please tell me we will get another chance to interact with the superior foes. I was fuming when you hinted at Fred and co. Being at the Tabbycat and everyone paid them no mind.
>>31207367>questions an' stuff.Would Laura be willing to ride on JJ's back as he fly's?
>>31207419Throw boulders until you see blood on the ground?
>>31207432"Jesus JJ! What's next? You grow a Jet engine out of your ass?""Well, I'm glad you brought that up Noriko..."
>>31207477But our guts are already a nuclear reactor, a jet engine isn't that far off.
>>31207457Nothing says romantic like dragon piggyback rides, you know assumimg we dont drop her sense we cant even really fly yet.
>>31207379Creepers powers only work on sight and sound. He can't hide from any other sense.
>>31207512yeah, we had a chance of detecting him since we got lv 4 senses
>>31207477"Don't be silly, the jet engine is in my mouth."
>>31207417You'd get a tingle whenever something's about to put you in danger. You wouldn't know where it is, what it is, etc, just that your danger sense is going off. And every single writer ever on a Spider-Man book has dealt with this, I'm sure it'll be fine. Your danger sense can't save you from silly decisions or bad dodge rolls.>>31207447It could happen.>>31207457Possibly. If it seemed like a good idea at the time.
>>31207457> How to train your JJSmells like a hit spinoff!
>>31207531>every single writer ever on a Spider-Man book has dealt with this, I'm sure it'll be fine.so power dampening gas and or enemies immune to it (like Venom)?
>>31207574Well, we do have Typhon.
I thought we agreed that Flight 2 was a priority, seeing as we no longer need to find high ass buildings to take off from.
>>31207574Hah. Not necessarily. Sometimes Spidey just ain't fast enough/there's too much danger at once/etc. There is one person 100% guaranteed to be immune, though.
>>31207589but geointuitive vision cures cancer!and senses 5 makes us immortal!nobody cares about bigger wings that could act as solar panels or shields>>31207605Squirrel Girl!
>>31207531>Possibly. If it seemed like a good idea at the time.But would she enjoy it? Riding there on his back with her typical blank emotionless face but secretly loving every minute of it.Would Layla be willing to ride on JJ's back. She would either be too scared or think it was the coolest thing ever.
>>31207605>There is one person 100% guaranteed to be immune, though.Typhon.
>>31207605It's Squirrel girl, right?
>Laura meets Doreen Green"It all makes perfect sense now."
>>31207621>>31207638Shit. Make that two people.>>31207623You know, the most practical way to carry someone at the moment would be to Adhesive Touch your feet to their back. But Layla would love it.Laura would think it's pretty [REDACTED].
guys real talkI don't think invisibility is worth maxing out.
>>31207623Would be obligated to serenade her with a beautiful rendition of "Whole New World"
>>31207605>There is one person 100% guaranteed to be immuneSuspecting TyphonConsidering SpiderbatHoping for favourite cousin Doreen.
>>31207685Easily is.Need to look round a corner without getting shot?Make the wall one way invisible and look right through while they cant see you.No detection in any spectrum, resistance to psychics while invis. Lvl 5 has lots of buisness going on for it.
>>31207680Echolocation gives 360 vision. combined with geo vision and maybe another level in agility.Are we neo from the matrix?
>>31207731>resistance to psychics while invisI do not recall this being on the table.Crusty! why didn't you make an official first power tier pastebin?
>>31207748Close. Neo has some low level superspeed going there. Also, you're probably a better actor than him.>>31207766I'm not sure. I guess I was less organized back then. Kinda didn't expect my first quest to get such a fervent regular audience.
>>31207766>official first power tier pastebin...would be an idea.Might make voting easier than working on expectations founded in guesswork.And make people forget about the shiny new-ish powers.
>>31207823Get to making one, mugga!
>>31207766it got discussed.Invis happens by a slight phase shift. level 5 stops basically everything on the electromagnetic spectrum from detecting us, that would also include a psychics ability to read the electrical currents inside your head, or projecting any of their own into your head. Only works while invis though. Still wont be good vs telekinetics, just resistance to telepaths. Would make us undetectable to most low level telepath users and give even cerebro a hard time pinning us down.
>>31207825>And make people forget about the shiny new-ish powers.they already have you silly billy. they'd rather slit their wrists then pick out the utility powers.
>>31207852All I remember is wonder woman's invisible jet being tossed around
>>31207680Yet another reason to invest in adhesive touch.
>>31207905You know, we still need to tell Layla about what happened in the orphanage, it would come in use to teach everyone how to fight off the demon. Also tell Gabe what we learned about dad and Roxon.Should totes start off the morning with that.
>>31207997I think we already talked to Layla about the orphanage. I agree about the Gabby bit.>>31207905I do want adhesive touch but it's just a matter of other powers being a little more useful. >>31207748Echolocation would actually go really well with geo vision.
>>31207997>it would come in use to teach everyone how to fight off the demon.think of lot and lots of fire? and then gain a healing factor to recover?that'd be a fun speech
>>31208052Mystery of the Druids would give us powerful sway as a Diplomancer. Taser-hands gives us offense with some cool utility. Adhesive Touch'd be nice too, but with Wings, Agility, and the other stuff, it's kinda the last kid to be picked.But don't worry, anon, with JJ's power choices, we'll probably have adhesive touch maxed before we get invis or senses maxed.
>>31208052>I think we already talked to Layla about the orphanage. I agree about the Gabby bit.We haven't.>>31208068Strong memories, and if it tries to use that "Fight yourself! bullshit" kick it's ass with what you're afraid of.
>>31208092I'd like a little headway into druid. just to lock up the utilities
>>31208092The green thumb power is the only "Druid" power that I wan't. It's a shame we would need to spend so many points on the prerequisites.
>>31208186it would help undercut the black market, give JJ a lot sway in the scar, and eliminate food costs from our budget, JJ would never have to steal food. we gain allies (with all sorts of powers). A spy network of plants and animals to help keep an eye on the scar.but the biggest things going against is the 8 point cost, the average quester can't into long term point budget plans, the boogeymen that are Kimura and or Creeper, and muh combat powers/senses.photosynthesis lv1: one pointanimal affnity lv1: one pointphotosynthesis lv2: two pointsanimal affnity lv2: two pointsthenFloral affinity for a measly one and then Green finger for another 1 point.the biggest hurdles are leveling up the utilities and banking for second level (or rather getting anons to vote for them at all really)
>>31208355No investment is over 2p, making banking a simple thing. If we're lucky enough to get 2 x points for doing something major, we can shove it into a lvl 2 ability.
>>31208092>but with Wings, Agility, and the other stuff, it's kinda the last kid to be picked.Even though we're a stealth build>>31208100>We haven't.Yeah we did. When we were hunting for furniture, or around that time. We told her.
>>31208576The problem isn't banking, once we get the first two there will be no more level 1 powers. And, there aren't many 1 point extrapolatives. The problem is, it will take about eight threads to get that far. A shit load can happen in eight threads. Say six threads from now the thread ends with Joseph holding JJ up by the neck, and we have two X-points. Do you really think we're going to buy photosynthesis in that situation?
>>31208726>mobility enhancements>not suitable for a stealth build>y srs?
>>31208726>Even though we're a stealth buildWings and agility can both be used for stealth.
>>31208770>>31208794I misread that bit, my bad.
>>31208726We didn't.Hunting furniture also happened before the incident.
>>31208829We did tell her about that stuff.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28474002/#p28475861Proof, faggot.
>>31208864And not a single point where we said anything along the lines of Demon- Here's what it did, here's how to fight it.We were just as vague as the night after.
>>31208917JJ doesn't know it was a demon, he only knows it said it was a demon.There is no "here's how to fight it." And if you think there is a step by step guide to demon fighting I'd like to hear about it.
>>31208756There isn't really any power JJ got or can get that can kick Typhon's ass (I forgot about our new 3rd boogeyman)and photosynthesis would probably help speed up the recovery
>>31208999We fought it, we won, we have the gist of it, JJ doesn't know what it was, correct, but JJ sure as hell knew that it was old and powerful and if it said it was a demon then it might as well be a freakin demon.
>>31208999True, but, while I'm not that anon, I'd rather we upgrade current powers first before buying more.>>31209038>and if it said it was a demon then it might as well be a freakin demon.Or a crazy psychic mutant or ghostly mutant.
>>31209047That's what we told Ben.Not what JJ truly believes.We kind of almost got possessed by the damn thing.
>>31209047I just feel Druid's benefits are more a certainty then say geointuitive vision or Senses 5 (it doesn't matter what we can see or sense it if we aren't fast enough) Subdermal armor would be a better defensive investment imo
>>31209166I just think we already have too many Level 1 powers right now.And yeah, Subdermal Armor is good, though near-Spider Senses & Geointuitive Vision is really good too.
>>31209152Little support quote.>He turns his gaze back to you. You feel yourself shrink as time, vast and merciless, uncoils in his eyes. It’s a sense of smallness that defies description, something that gnaws at the very roots of fear – beyond fear of death, of disgrace, of dark, of damnation. Just fear, pure and unmitigated by material experience.This… this doesn’t feel like a mutant.
>>31209275level 1 doesn't means its crap.tasers ended a fight today and its just level 1claws is a nice cheap melee boostAdhesive..feels kinda of waste I'll give you that.wings, flight is nice, should go for at least lv2 imosubdermal is getting ignored tragicallyand I'll take guaranteed DR over a plus to dodge I just feel like everything is being built to kill 3 people (and there's no real one power to kill any of them.)
>>31209408>level 1 doesn't means its crap.Sort of, yes.
>>31209438tazer level 1 ended the fight with the Guthries
>>31209338JJ can't teach the others how to beat it because he doesn't know how he beat it. What does talking about it accomplish?
>>31209487>Doesn't know how to beat itHow so?JJ fuckin beat it, that would imply keeping such knowledge.
>>31209520It's not like he used any strategy. If Layla asks him how to beat it JJ will respond. "when it tries to steal you're soul... don't let it"You can't teach will power.
>>31209520"Oh hey, that thing was a demon, if you're in it's dimension you have to fight with your willpower, powerful memories seem to help. Also it has to maintain physical contact if possessing multiple beings."Shits done.
>>31209480Diplomacy ended the fight with the Guthries. Taser just gave us room to breathe.I agree we should build up subdermal, but senses and wings come first.On the druid stuff, photosynthesis is good... at level 3. Not great until then. We should get it at some point, even go in for animal and plant powers, but it's not a priority.Improve the powers we've got before we get more.
>>31209661>senses we're not going to be ambush proof. its a 4 point trap. Somebody is going to be too fast or we couldn't dodge it.even spider-man gets taken by surprise.
>>31209749It's not a trap, it enhances general senses and gives us a way to actually combat Creeper, we actually need this one.
