Kaito gives Hitomi and Hanako a nod before turning to you and patting you on the shoulder.“Take care of yourself,” he smiles, “And fuck anyone who gives you shit for being who you are or who you want to be,”“You burnt your flag, you can stop trying to be everyone’s big brother. Just have a safe ride home, Kaito.” you crack your neck and smile as he walks up to his bike and begins walking it off into the night. Later, when you’re alone you might tell him about what’s going on...all of it.Sure, you told Hitomi about Mori Micro industries buying the hospital, but you consider telling him about everything else. About the powers.“Good night, Tsubasa,” Hitomi leads Hanako past you.Hanako is unsteady on her feet. Obviously still drunken and perhaps even a bit sick. She keeps weakly protesting and pulling against her sister’s hold citing that they need to wait for you.“Tsubasa, can you explain her ramblings?”>My apartment isn’t habitable tonight, Hanako offered me a place to crash.>Guy shot up my door, they’re processing the scene tonight and Hanako offered me a place to crash.>No idea, but can I crash with you guys tonight? My apartment is getting a surprise perforation and needs to air out.>No idea, see you later.>Other

>>31736903>>Guy shot up my door, they’re processing the scene tonight and Hanako offered me a place to crash.
Well, this looks like a consensus to me, so I guess being late to the thread isn't too bad.
“Guy shot up my door, they’re processing the scene tonight and Hanako offered me a place to crash.” you sigh and fall in line beside her.“I’m sorry, what did you just say?”“Guy sho-”“I understand that, why wait until now to bring it up?” she seems upset.“I didn’t want to ruin the party,” you sigh.Hitomi marches up to you, dragging Hanako being her. The inebriated girl groans for her to slow down in exhausted and dizzy. The still functioning girl snatches the cigarette off of your ear and throws it to the ground before staring at you angrily before calming down.“We’re taking the long way, so Hanako has a chance to sober up and you have a chance to air out. Grandfather hates the smell of tobacco,” she drags her sister ahead of you and you fall into step.“YaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaY,” Hanako cries weakly, “sleep ove-”She chokes briefly on a hiccup and returns to listing behind her sister. You catch up with them, annoyed at the superficial loss of your cigarette.>”So, what have you been up to since I went under?”>”Win any new awards for your arrangements?”>”So, how does your grandpa feel about me since the news came out,”>Otherand roll me 6d6.

>>317388152 Successes. DC met. Writing in a bit.
Falling into a tense silence, the three of you walk a few blocks before Hanako begins singing softly and off key. You turn again to HItomi.”So, how does your grandpa feel about me since the news came out,”“He was concerned by our association at first, until Kaito offered your past to us and him,” she begins as Hanako comes up behind you and hugs you with her free arm.“He was all grumpy about it, and worried about me being a heartbroken maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiden,” she giggles, “Shhhhh,”She tries to bring her finger to her lips as she tries to shush you on some unexplained secret. As the exchange continues, you become acutely aware of your surroundings. Beyond the three of you, there are six distinct perceptions on you. On the low rooftops beside you, someone is keeping pace with your group and watching. One hundred feet back another figure is following you, it feels familiar. An incalculable distance away, you feel four presences observing you coolly.Those four are aware you have noticed them. They are familiar. They are waiting. In this moment, be they real or the product of your imagination, they are unimportant.

>>31740823>Activate everything is perfectly fine and pull over to the side of the pedestrian road, and go investigate.Proactive!
>>31740823whisper to them we're being followed, and Hitomi needs to get Hanako home.Act like we got a call, end it and check the timerun the other way and go through the alleyways for a bitSUPERPOWERZ jump up a fire escape and climb up to the roof

You are 2 minutes late, but you break the tie.So. I will be writing shortly.
>>31741708in my defense, I made the 3 plan
Leaning in close to Hitomi, you whisper, “We’re being followed. I’m going to break off and you get Hanako home or safe or...just get out of here. I’m going to draw them off,”She looks at you first in confusion, and then horrified understanding. There is something in her eyes as goes rigid and continues forward at a normal pace. You fake receiving a phone call and pull over to the side to take it, drifting away from the sisters and waving them goodnight. Hanako obliviously waves goodnight with an echoing cry. Hitomi watches you worriedly, a well of sadness behind her eyes. She waves sadly, perhaps thinking this is the last time she’ll see you.Won’t she be surprised.You break for an alley a block back and relax the restriction you placed on your abilities. Effortlessly you leap off the wall a few times before climbing up onto the roof and looking for the figure who was following you.A bullet flies past your shoulder, with no booming explosion of gunfire. There on the far side of the rooftop is a figure holding a gun lazily in their left hand, the chamber open and a slew of loose bullets being tossed up and down lazily in their opposite hand. They wear a hooded sweatshirt and simple but tight jeans.“Hey there, cutie,” he says with a lopsided grin beneath the shadow of his hood, “I’ve had an eye on you,”>Actions?
>>31742220Well, ask what he wants then. Unless he's an utter moron, he probably isn't looking to shoot us, what with missing the first shot and now removing the bullets from his gun.Since I'm gonna go sleep now, thanks for running.
>>31742220Become BOOLIT PROOF. Walk up and take his gun.
>>31742220"People like you are the reason nobody can wear hoods anymore."
>>31742220Ask him who he is, what he wants, and who does he work for. And that shooting at a girl tends to make them want to rip the shooter's balls off.
>>31742333You heard no gunshot, there is no silencer attached to his barrel.
Gotta drive. Discuss amongst yourselves. Be back later this evening.
>>31742220"Didn't anyone teach you stalking is RUDE?"
>>31742220A witty line and then getting some answers out of him seem good
>>31742220Answer back with snark.It's obvious your single, don't you know most people hate stalkers?
Rolled 5, 3, 4, 6, 3, 5, 3, 1 = 30"Didn't anyone ever teach you that stalking is rude, and a real turn off to most single women," You grouse, "who are you, what do you want?"He clicks his tongue and flings the empty gun away, you feel it land at the edge of your perception in a public waste basket on the street level. Lucky shot. Your other follower is busy climbing a fire escape, slowly, a block away."Isn't that the question. Who are you? Had a name once, don't have much use for it now. As for what I want, now that's a bit more complicated. I'm supposed to provoke you into showing off another fancy light show, and I was worried I'd overdone things earlier...but here you are. Right as rain."His smile grows wide as his head rolls gently to and fro. Is he the creep who shot you?"Two to the head, one to the torso. Nothing fancy, normal rounds. They wouldn't get me hollow point or anything special," he sighs and plays. With the loose bullets between his fingers, "guess they underestimated you,""Who are they," you're getting angry, "Who do you work for!"He stops his approach and the smile vanishes."The first of your clergy, of course,"With a swipe of his hand you feel space distort. A miniature funnel of gravity wraps around a single thrown bullet from among the several in his hand and rockets it toward you.Roll me 15d6, difficulty equal to your opponent's successes.
Rolled 4, 2, 5, 2, 1, 6, 3, 4, 1, 4, 5, 6, 2, 3, 5 = 53>>31744287Great, so he's trying to kill us
Rolled 4, 3, 6, 6, 6, 2, 5, 2, 2, 1, 5, 2, 1, 5, 2 = 52>>31744287so there are more people with powers, good to know
Rolled 4, 6, 6, 5, 1, 2, 3, 5, 1, 1, 5, 2, 5, 4, 2 = 52>>31744287I think we should kill him before he becomes even more of a problem.
Rolled 2, 2, 3, 5, 6, 3, 6, 1, 2, 4, 6, 6, 5, 5, 2 = 58>>31744287Why would a member of my clergy be attacking me?
8 vs 4. 2 degrees of success as you ignore his bullet. Do you want to bank the successes or describe another aspect of the scene in which a gravity propelled bullet hits you harmlessly.
Rolled 4, 6, 2, 3, 3, 6, 3, 3, 2, 3, 1, 3, 6, 3, 3 = 51>>31744420note the wording, OUR clergylooks like the divine intervention bit was more accurate than IC thought
>>31744448our clergy?what do you mean wording?
>>317444462 Dice for OVERPOSE
>>31744446bank onecan we catch it?
>>31744446I say bank 1 and use the other to do something cool.Not just catch the bullet but have it crumble away into dust
>>31744469The fucker is either worshiping us or trying to found a religion based with us as god, probabky the second
>>31744581no, catch it between two fingers while posingwe shal blind him with style
>>31744622yeah I figured thatI was curious as to why he was attacking the being he wanted to worship
>>31744649He said he wanted us to show off our powers more. Get our powers and identity out there I'm guessing
>>31744674and if doing so isolates us from the rest of humanity, all the better I'm surewhich is bad news for our friends
>>31744446Bank em' we should change one of our ablities after this.
>>31744674well he could be nicer about itright now I feel like extracting information from himlike who else knows about our conditionand then hunting them all down and making sure they keep quiet through whatever means necessary
You reach out, perfectly aware of the bullet's trajectory relative to the rotation of the earth, it's orbit around the sun, and the solar system's movement within the grand spiral of the milky way. It extends, your arm, as your compression relaxes and you resume the dimensions you woke to this morning, though something is changed. Your musculature is rigid but mobile in ways you could not have conceived. You are aware of the almost crystalline architecture and arrangements of the atoms making up large portions of your body. Denser, harder, yet still soft and smooth. New found strength.Heaving bosom straining against the previously comfortably loose sweater, and the waist of your pants straining at the seams against your chiseled waist and firm back; your body contorts in exaggerated motions allowing your hand to follow the bullet. Plucking it from the air with your fingers from behind before it can trie to bury itself into your chest, you show off your catch to your assailant and give a cruel smile.The friction from betwixt your fingers was too much for the munition, and the fatigued metal crumbles into dust with the slightest pressure. Even though the pose you adopted to catch that bullet is entirely impractical, it feel natural, and you know it looks fantastic.Your assailant steps back in shock. Offering a low whistle."Somebody has been eatin' their Wheaties. You are quite more than I was expecting, reckon I'll get out of your hair if it's all the same to you," he chuckles but it is laced with fear.Good, you want him to be afraid.>No, keeping that violent streak in check. Parlay, aggressive.>No, keeping that violent streak in check. Parlay, neutral.>Play with him, he's a scared little mouse, let him think he has a chance.>Attack, with lethal intent.>Attack, with intent to restrain.>Attack, with intent to render unconscious.>other
>>31744986>Attack, with intent to render unconscious."You don't think I'll let you off that easily, do you?"
>>31744986>>Attack, with intent to render unconscious.knock him out then go meet his friend
>>31744986>Attack, with intent to render unconscious.WE REQUIRE INFORMATION, AND YOU WILL PROVIDE IT!!!
>>31744986>Attack, with intent to render unconscious."Did you really think there would be no consequences? You really have no experience with women, do you?"
>>31744986>Attack, with intent to restrain.if we're going to interrogate him might as well just do it now, instead of knocking him out and waiting for him to recover
>>31744986>>Attack, with intent to render unconscious.guys, you know the other guy following might be Kaito, right?
>>31745120nah, we'll take him with us, gives us more time, can't have his buddy killing him mid-sentence can we?'sides, we can break it to the twins at the same time
>>31745173>implying his buddy would even be able to kill him without our consent
Rolled 5, 4, 4, 5, 2, 4 = 24Attack to render unconscious?Okay then.Roll me 17d6, best of three against his defensive roll.

>>31745299statfag hereI thought you'd be interested in knowing that you had a 1 in 1466 chance of rolling so poorly
9 versus 5 in your favor. 2 degrees of success. Bank then or spend them on something nifty of your own description or inquiry?
>>31745489Oh hallowed Statfag, I beseech you from my ring of bamboo straw mats. Is my new system better than my old one?
>>31745560while spending on OVERPOSE was useful, I say bank them for now
>>31745560Smother him in your breasts to knock him out.
>>31745560Bank them for now, because I can't think of something right now.
>>31745607we're trying to intimidate him, not make his day
>>31745645Maybe he won't resist so much while we deprive him of oxygen.
>>31745645Why can't we do both. Our breasts are made of pure muscle and are suffocating him
>>31745661>>31745677show some self respect manor... character respect
>>31745560bank themmaybe use one to not do any permanent damage?naaaah, bank em both>>31745607noTsubasa is the sexually embarrassed muscle amazon>>31745587well better is tough to saythis one is certainly a lot simpler and causes much less confusionbut at the same time with so many rolls you aren't going to veer very far from the expected average. that's why I was so shocked someone rolled as low as a 37. on a roll like 17d6, the probability that we're between 50 and 70 is about 86%, and the probability that we're between 45 and 75 is 97%.From the dice you used to set the opposing DC though, I'd say it's having the intended effect. The chances of us beating their rolls are effectively 100%, we're using them mostly to rack up points for upgrades.So yeah, less random than last system, less confusing for non-statfags, we win at everything. I'd say it's better.
We should totally get a "My Clothes Change With Me" power at some point....Unless losing all our clothes when we fight is something we want.
>>31745874yeah, that would simplify thingsand we can use sexymode for proper dramatic emphasis
>>31745821You know, eventually you will face THINGS with comparably varied or GREATER BUT MORE NARROWLY FOCUSED dice pools.
>>31746506THINGS you saywell hopefully we'll be prepared for THINGS by then
>>31746506OkNot sure what you mean by more narrowly focused.By the way, if you want I could totally make you tables with chances of success for all the DC's of a certain roll type.
>>31746603we have large dice pools thus far from applying many different traits, presumably later tests will include fewer
>>31746659>>31746506Maybe narrowly focused means they'll have a pool that is really good at one thing, but it isn't so good at another thing, so even if it starts kicking our ass, we can go around and exploit it's weakness in creative ways?
>>31746603That would be useful. Thank you.
>>31746703Basically, (I think) it means they will have named dice just like we do, but their dice will be more specifically named, like "piloting a helicopter through a hurricane while eating a sandwitch", instead of "flying in unfavorable conditions". The more strict the wording of the dice, the more times you roll it when it applies, but the fewer situations it actually applies to. If we have to face a THING with super strict wording on its dice it will roll absurdly high amounts of dice in very specific scenarios, and be curbstomped everywhere else.
Rolled 24>>31746729o-ok, what do you want a table for? 15d6, 17d6, 20d6, all of the above?
>>31746984Range from 6 to 30, unless that is too much.
Pitching forward you let momentum carry you to your assailant. It's a rush as you catch him in a lariat move on your right, lift him slightly, before diving forward and pinning him down to the roof. Flexing your arms tighter, you cut off his already dazed air supply. The bullets have all fallen from his hand, and he keeps trying to forge a weaponized gravity well. Your own manipulation a keep him from forming one rather handedly."Go to sleep," you growl in glee.There is a certain sensation as he struggles. That trilling feeling you felt earlier just from being bigger and stronger. Now; exerting that power over another, even a super powered assailant, is thrilling in its own way. He claws at your arm helplessly and eventually and goes slack beneath you.Power. You are powerful. He was weak.You shake those thoughts from your head and prepare to leave with your prisoner when you notice your other stalker. Whoever they are, they arrived far faster than you had expected or even noticed. They are dressed in blue with an obscuring rebreather and tinted eye protection.In her hand is a collapsible baton. They close it Nd holster it."Well, looks like you didn't need someone looking after you after all. I'm a bit disappointed," try sigh.The disguise is superficial, but beneath it's surface runs an electrical interference that prevent a you from noticing beneath to anonymity.>End Thread 8I gotta go, you have 4 in the Bank, enough for a new skill at 1d6, or to change a few words, or to sit on for later.Talk, write, and vote.
