Your hot link sausage sandwich tastes pretty good. The presentation was a lot simpler than you were expecting for twenty dollars, but you’re willing to cede looks for taste. God, is that good. Maybe the spartaness of the presentation (link + bun in small plastic boat, cup of thick, brown sauce on side) is the point.Your eyes were red and puffy as you glanced at your reflection in the mirrors of Skyler’s car, but they don’t feel as raw or inflamed now. Wendy, that fucking whore.You smile at nothing, your eyes focused on the scenery a thousand yards away, and crush the anger like Wendy crushed you. It’s not good to feel these feelings on a day where your life might be put into her hands.You can get mad on a day off.Skyler turns his head and looks over his shoulder, looking for what you’re boring a hole into with your gaze.He doesn’t see anything. “Michelle?”Your eyes defocus as your eyebrows tighten and pinch together, and you pull back into the scene you exist in, not the one you were imagining in a far away place.You take a glance at his face and laugh nervously, girlishly. Ha ha, you’re so funny SkylerHe looks away quickly, embarrassedly. Goddamnit Michelle, what is wrong with you?Skyler, looks around awkwardly a slideshow of conflict and uncertainty on his face as he coughs awkwardly, “So...listen to music?”This has always been a “safe,” topic for him and Wendy to discuss.>Your reply
>>31958513>"Yeah, uh...from time to time. Just regular stuff, you know."More! More awkward!
>>31958513"Only music I ever payed much attention to was the crap they broadcast over the base radio when on standby"Damn, right as I'm heading to bed this starts up, good luck fellow anons, try to not spaghetti too much or be that much of a bitch.
>whoops, almost forgot something!You are Michelle St. Claire, and today is your third day on the job. Currently you’re having lunch with Skyler.He seems nice.Liquid: 3049.33 + first wk paycheck (2289.57)Income: ~2200/wk + bonusesExpenses: 5500/mo leaseCaptive money: 10k security depositTwitter: https://twitter.com/WetworkIdols @WetworkIdolsArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Wetwork%20Idols%20Quest

>>31958513>sorry I was watching Eurovision and that slowed post time“You know, uh...stuff? Yeah, you know. Normal, regular stuff.”Skyler doesn’t look like he believes you. “Oh, really?”He pulls out his phone and opens a note app. “Tell me more.”You pull at your collar and say, “Whatever was...uh, on at the base?”He looks smug as he puts the phone away, “Nothing then?”“...I guess.”He rubs his temples and picks up his sandwich again.Nice one, Michelle.>Spaghetti harder>Conversate>Other

>writing in 5
>>31959244>Fuck these Eurovision judges, Jesus. What a fucking scam.You can save this. You know just how. “Wait! Hold on...I remember one I liked.”Skyler looks at you but remains impassive.“It’s got some words and sounds and goes like…”You grab some plastic silverware and bang them against the table.There is no discernible melody, beat, or rhythm. Skyer quickly covers the two spoons and your hands and pins them against the table.“Please. I’m begging you.”You fidget in your seat, uncomfortable with the body contact and everything else about this situation too.That made it all worse. Good work, Michelle.“So...uh, what do, you know, you listen to?”It seems like you’ve killed his enthusiasm, but he responds. Politeness? Maybe he isn’t utterly exhausted yet. “A lot? Mostly continental stuff, I guess, but in the last few years there’s been a lot of new rap and hip-hop coming out from Aztlan and the Aztechs, although I don’t really get Spanish.”Cool, cool. You nod along. You wish you knew what those words meant. “Cool.”>Conversate harder>Spaghetti harder>Fidget harder>Other

>>31960241You can vote for all three, but I keep forgetting under "Conversate," to include "(About?)"If there's nothing specified it just sorts of wanders somewhere uncomfortable.
>>31960182I think its time for a little; no talking
>>31960281>If there's nothing specified it just sorts of wanders somewhere uncomfortable.Well that's the best kind of conversate!Ask him what the point of listening to rap in languages he doesn't understand is. Wasn't rap, like...wordy?
>>31960182>Fidget harderMaximum fidgeting. We should probably apologize for not being any good at anything besides killing people at some point.
>>31960182>Other>Graduate to squirming.
>>31960182You squirm underneath Skyler’s hands and quickly and awkwardly pull back, elbowing the plastic cup with your soda in it.It dances around the table for a very uncomfortable second before Skyler gently grabs it and puts it back in place.You cough, squirming nervously in your seat as a thoroughly uncomfortable silence settles over the table.You feel yourself chewing loudly and attempt to hide it behind a gulp of drink, which only makes it worse.You drum your fingers on the fabric of your...whatever your pants are made of. Something. “So...um, isn’t rap like...wordy? I mean like, you know, if you don’t understand it and whatever…”Skyler’s eyes look empty as he responds, “I know some words and phrases, and I’ve picked some up from Wendy. It’s mostly about the beat and how it sounds, anyways. What it means has never been that important.”“...sorry for being so weird.”To his credit he doesn’t react, only looks at his watch. “We better get going.”He pounds the rest of whatever’s in his cup and walks out. You hurriedly do the same and try to keep up with his long stride, and end up mostly riding his heels.Skyler turns the volume up as you drive back. You’re not sure if it’s just to protect himself from you.Wendy is there, sitting, a-...ok, that’s weird. Those markings weren’t there a hour ago.“Umm...Wendy, you got something on your face…”You dab at the skin underneath your eyes.Wendy reaches into her bag next to her and pulls out a small pocket mirror and examines her face, and her eyes go wide in panic.“FUCK! FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!”She slings her bag over her shoulder and races out of the room. You sit down awkwardly.>[1/2]
>>31961101Well then...at least today can’t get ANY worse than lunch and this morn-Oh, wait. Yes it can, because that new horn blaring and the lights shifting from blue to red means it just did.That same synthetic, feminine voices comes over the line. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL. GENERAL QUARTERS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. GENERAL QUARTERS.”Well…FUCK!>How do you react
>>31961125Get to general quarters of course!I do so enjoy the constant awkwardness of our MC and everyone she interacts with.
>>31961140>>31961125Nothing awkward in battle I guess, this could be our lucky break
>>31961125Now we are in a comfort zone, Get prepped and ready.
>>31961125You feel bad for being so excited as you are, but this finally means you can do things without talking, and that’s only a good thing for y-Oh. Right. You have a handler. Fuck. You pull the hair over your ear back and quickly get the comm bead inserted and hope it’s not the same man from last time.There’s a series of beeps. Encryption being established? Hearing test? You’re not sure. Finally, a voice over the line.“And who do I have tod- Oh. It’s the fuck up. Again. Goddamnit.”He sighs loudly. “Let’s just try to get through this. I’ll use small words. You am go kill children for money. Show up, shoot the girls and their protection dead, leave. Get it?”>Yes>No>Other
>>31961892OOC: I thought we were bodyguards?>Yes>OtherPlease tell me there is no stupid limits on what weapons or strategies I use? I am going to use a fucking sniper rifle.
>>31962000Michelle & Friends do whatever the company says. This means some days you'll be standing around a desk, shooting men in track suits.Some days you'll be the men in track suits shooting the people behind the desks.Today is one of those days where you're hitting, and not getting hit.
>>31961892Me am having much understandings bossman.
>>31961892>YesMichelle: Child-murderer. Snazzy title!
>>31962054this so much this
>>31961892You reply, deadpan (although it’s not really much different from usual tone), “Me am having much understandings.”He laughs. It sounds genuine. “Good. Maybe you’re not the retard everyone in the booth thinks you are. The venue should be on display on the screen in the green room. Do you see it?”You scan your head about 100 degrees clockwise, and you see a large, pale blue diagram. Looks like a… something.“I see it.”“Good. Today should be simple. You’ll be crashing an event hosted by two girls and somewhere between 1 to four or five or six guards under the shadow of some clocktower at some mall. The guards are inconsequential, but I see that they’ve been flagged in today’s file as generating some extra bounty. I guess that means we like them even less. Whatever. The girls need to die, you’ll make extra bank depending on how greedy and murderously disgusting you are.On the map I’ve flagged the tower the girls will be near with orange, and probable guard locations in red. A car will be ready to exfil once they’re dead. If you need me call me. Yates out.”You walk closer to the map.>Time for strategery with your hosts Michelle, Wendy, and Skyler.
>>31962979Ummm.....what do we have as equipment?
>>31962979Sneaky kill is best kill, gotta be smart about this. (also I'm off to bed, thanks for questing)
>>31962979Yates comes back on the line quickly, "Oh, almost forgot. Collateral damage will be taken directly from your pay. Unless you want to be working for free, I'd advise you only kill those you're told to.">>31963050Lots of lots of different things. You're basically paramilitarios.What is it you want?
>>31963069Thanks for playing. Catch you next time European-friend or wherever you are.
>>31962979Set up on a roof, sniper timed simultaneous shots, wham bam done.I mean, I'm sure something will go wrong, but eh.
>>31962979Any chance of hitting them before they get there? Would make it easy to maximize guard kills without killing civilians.Either way, I gotta sleep too. Thanks for running.
>>31963106Lock exits, snipe everything. Leave when done. Make sure disguise is up to snuff. Shoot light and use night-vision goggles.
Yates has forwarded another image to show relative scale of the buildings. Climbing them is certainly possible, but the expected foot traffic indicates it would be extremely difficult to impossible to do so without notice, especially after shots are fired.>>31963322It might not be, but you would need to leave immediately.>>31963330Day time event, NVG not required.
>>31963635Did I bog everything up by letting you guys choose how to approach the mission?I thought you guys earned a bit of agency for sticking with me for 12 threads, but...I dunno. Maybe I should do the planning and execution phase another day at a different time?
>>31963771EU is sleeping now, maybe NA hasn't shown up.
>>31963635Yeah...just snipe the TARGETS from FAR away by the getaway vehicle. They are in a tower so we can stay at a distance down one of those avenues, possibly by the parking lot. When we make a getaway, just rpg any pursuing HOSTILES. From now on, idols are called either TARGETS or ASSETS and guards either HOSTILES or ALLIES. >>31963771Its morbid planning to kill little girls, like cannibalism from a male point of view. Other than that, this is in a public setting in broad daylight and no good cover. I don't see where the getaway vehicle could be place for quick getaway. This is a shit job really.
>>31963876NA just got off work or eating dinner at the moment.
>>31963889They're not actually in the tower, they're just underneath it. Probably under some sort of tent, the day's forecast indicates sun with wispy clouds.>>31963876Hmm. True that. West coast won't be off work and on 4chan for a while longer. East cost should be rolling around, but I don't know how many of those I have.
>>31963973NA central time represent.
>>31963973Argh, fuck it, snipe them when they are out in the open. Either on arrival or when performing.
>>31964100Inb4 substitutes and doubles.
>>31964124Nah. Not yet, anyways. If you live long enough, maybe, and start going after the girls worth hundreds of thousands/millions/tens of millions/etc, instead of the cheap ones.
>>31964100We should have one or two of us close by to keep them from escaping in case the sniping plan doesn't work out for whatever reason.
>>31964211Nah, triple snipers for two targets is good enough. The key thing is the getaway, it'll be 5-6 vs 3 after the assassination. If they chase us in a vehicle, we can just rpg it or floor it.
>>31962979It seems like there's a loose (tight?) consensus on standing as far away as you can, and then braining the girls and anyone else you can get away with.>Yes>No>Other
>>31964267Then we'll need to triangulate or something to minimize their ability to take cover against us.
>>31964634Or, you know, shoot, duck down, and sneak away.
>>31964698I'm mainly worried about not getting one of the girls. We are absolutely not allowed to let one of them get away. And I don't trust that we'll be able to get them both on the first shot, even with three of us shooting at two of them. Murphy's Law and all that.
>>31964769Two shoot, one mops up. Maybe silencing the rifles with provide enough confusion to get a second round off.
>>31964452You point at the photos. “This is insane.”Wendy still isn’t back. Skyler stands up and takes a closer look.“Yep. It’s like this was purposely designed to NOT give a clear sight line from the parking lot to the center. Christ…”“Maybe we should just like, you know, only go far enough in so we can raise a rifle and shoot them dead?”Skyler looks at you briefly and then back to the map. “Where do we take the shots from? There’s going to be a ton of traffic.”>?
>>31964946It's probably fine, I'm likely just being overly cautious. I just want Michelle's first big girl mission to go well, since she's had spaghetti falling out of her pockets all day and murder is the one thing she seems to be good at.
>>31964981From the parking lot, when they are arriving, if not leaving. Or you know, do it like last time, board their tour bus and execute the lot.
>>31964981The wooded area to the south seems the best bet, so long as we can find somewhere with LOS. Everywhere else is too close in or blocked by corners.
>>31964981Another image is displayed on the screens.
>>31965341Photos have been provided of the "back," behind the tower.Next time I use a location I'll go scout it myself.
>>31964981“Maybe if we wrap in through this...tree-path-thing? It looks like we can avoid most of the protection. Do we have to do it during the day? Can’t we wait until after they’re done?”Skyler shrugs, “That’s a handler question.”You repeat the question to Yates, who replies, “If you feel like playing a dangerous game. If they escape alive, we will find you and we will kill you.As long as they’re dead within or near the mall, although the company naturally prefers a most grizzly, blood splattered tent.”>Michelle’s action
>>31965618I'm up for either sniping them through the wooded area during the event, or using the crowd to get close, then bang and sweep.
>>31966009Is there one you prefer more? They're rather...contradictory, although for the backside your firing lanes are pretty unclear.
>>31966300Might be best to wait a bit. I seem to be the only one here currently, so it might be prudent to wait for the other regulars.
>>31965618Oh for fucks sakes, do it brazenly, snipe 3 guards, and take the rest out with a machine gun. Wear riot armor or something. What is the tech level in this quest? Modern-day?
>>31966441Yeah, that's kind of my feeling as well...and it gives me some space to get my dinner and everything taken care of.Probably the best plan. I'll be here checking and replying to anything, but I'll freeze the big updates for another hour or two and see if any of the Pacifica crowd wakes up and whatever.I really want to take care of today's combat session today.
>>31966563"cyberpunk." I haven't really decided on the upper boundaries of science, but if you want to ram raid the shit out of them, well, you can get a machine gun.
>>31966009Support with sniping from wooded area. Also, plant a bomb on their vehicle.
>>31966632>>31966009 Here. I'm actually partial to getting in close, then hitting flashbangs and clearing them with shotguns and smgs. It just seems a more reliable way to make sure the girls die.
>>31966749>>31966729Can we combine these? Hit them, force them to go for the vehicle, and then boom?
>>31968094That's very clever.They just, you know, might not have a vehicle, or they might have several.Just keep in mind what your objective is, and the consequence of failure.
Just woke up, OP, for future reference, you might not want to go "THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER, WAT DO?" with tactical planning when you've got very few readers, its like the most effort demanding complex form of a write-in and write-in's are uncomfortable enough most of the time, so some premade 'plans' that can be voted on and provide structure to be modified can vastly help.Also, reading the discussion and I've no fucking idea what the plan is.
>>31968437Yeah. Kind of learned/learning that.As for the plan, well, you're with me and everyone else. Anon's just been floating ideas so far.
>>31968475I'm down for shock and awe, with explosives/a sniper/both just in case.
>>31968475right then, if theres no 'plan' currently then I reckon we should go with >>31966563 our bosses wanted brazen and outlandishlets ramraid/flashbang and then go to town on the place with shotguns and smgsthough we should probably have someone hanging back a little bit with a long gun to cover us
>>31968558also, if we can fashion some sort of massive claymore on the from of whatever we use to ramraid, that would be awesomebust in, get in close, blow is and turn fucking everything for 20 meters into fine mist
>>31964981“So...that’s ominous.”“Yep.”“Ok, so...how about we, you know, hulk out and ram raid the shit out of them? I mean, if the choice is maybe get killed by them, or definitely killed by the company...you know.”Skyler rubs his face and, for a moment, looks utterly exhausted, “Yeah. That might work. If we can blow through the first few bodies without having any return fire we might be alright.Where the hell is Wendy?”You shrug. “I’ll check the bathroom.”You trudge along, not excited about wasting time, to the women’s room and push past the door.Wendy’s standing trying to cover up the marks on her face with...something. Looks like a skin color sock, or something. It seems like she’s taken care of most it.“Hey, uh...Wendy, we’ve got a, you know, ...thing…”“Fuck off, Michelle. I’m busy.”You squirm uncomfortably, shifting your weight from each foot and back again. “Look they said if we don’t kill them in the mall or at least near it they’re going to kill us. If I wanted to die I would’ve done it already. Can you come out now please?”“I said fuck off, Michelle. Christ. I’ll be done in a few minutes.”You stare at her, awkwardly, watching as she flinches in pain every time she puts the makeup on her skin.“So, you know, ...what exactly are those?”“Long story. Fuck off.”Well then. She seems prickly. She stomps into the main area of the ready room and looks at the photos on the wall.“Is this it?”Skyler nods.“I’m so over this job. Michelle and I will load up and and we’ll hammer down this west wing. Skyler can loop around this shitty little tree path and then we’ll shoot the shit out of those stupid bitches and then I get to go home. Deal?>Yes>No>Other
>>31968632>on the fromon the front*
>>31968644Ah, goddamnit. Linked to the wrong post.Post >>31968644 should link to post >>31965618My bad.
>writing in 5. Consensus get!
>>31968644“Deal.”Skyler says, “Deal.”“Good. Now fuck off and get dressed.”“Yes ma’am…”You quickly turn around and begin getting dressed. “So...uh...are we going to try to blend in and get close? Or…”Wendy says, “I don’t care, Michelle, just pick one. You’re the badass infantryman, you tell me what’s better.”>We should blend in and get as close as we can and waste them all>We should load up like tanks and roll through>Other
>>31969492Trying to blend in didn't work very well for those tracksuit guys at the beginning. Might as well storm in
>>31969492>We should blend in and get as close as we can and waste them allThis'll be easier if they don't see us coming.
>>31969566Yeah, but they did a very shitty job of it, were suspicious immediately, and didn't use flashbangs.
>>31969492>We should load up like tanks and roll throughwe're gonna be facing greater numbers, we want protection and firepower on our sidealthough it would be utterly hilarious if we can get an ice cream truck to make our entrance in, full PA system playing crappy music and all just to make them go "what the fuck?"
>>31969590 here againjust thinking, could we do both? have one blend in and sneak in, get in a flank position, then the other busts in full hulk and starts shit, when it kicks off the blended in one starts a murderin'
>>31969618That's what I was actually going to write if the vote remained tied at 1-1.Still obviously an option, just file it under "Other," and get some support from your fellow Anons.
>>31969618Collateral damage comes out of our pay. Keep that in mind.
>>31969618 here again againdoes anyone else wonder if trying to blend in after ramraiding and blitzing the place is a good idea? kinda goes against the entire shock and awe plan...
>>31969666So threatens Yates. Whether you take him seriously or not is Michelle's (your) choice, but the threat's been made.You're here to kill the girls, kill as many of their guards as you can or want (they pay). Anyone who isn't part of those groups will come out of your pay as the company settles wrongful death lawsuits.
>>31969711>>31969704ah right, I just read the big updates and missed that onein that case changing from >>31969590to>We should blend in and get as close as we can and waste them allwe don't want to have a firefight with a crowd in the middle of it
>>31969492“We’re going to blend in as far as we can. You enter through the north walkway here, and I’ll come in through the west like we planned. Skyler will stay at the south. He’ll engage first. He should be able to take both guards easily. We’ll drop flas- or…I had a better idea.”They both raise their eyebrows at you. Uh oh. Better deliver, Michelle.“Smoke. Thermal can cut through the smoke, and the guys on the ground probably won’t be equipped with any. At the very least only one or two, tops, and it’ll be obvious which are. We’ll drop smokes on remote hard in the east alley, and lighter in our corridors. They’ll either double down at their booth or try to herd the girls towards a more clear avenue.”You sigh heavily. “Then we can kill the girls.”Wendy examines you closely. “That’s not a bad plan.”Skyler adds, “Yeah. We might not die today.”The three of you dress casually, hiding your ballistic vests under jackets. Wendy and you hide your SMGs inside your purses, and Skyler has his underneath his jacket on account of his bigger, taller frame.Your exfil vehicle is going to be at the south alley. Skyler will provide cover as you and Wendy rotate counterclockwise. It’s set to pull up and be ready to go once the engagement begins.You quickly double check your magazines, vest, and get your thermals (which are...ok, wow, they’re actually just...sunglasses. You didn’t have these in Afghanistan) from inventory and on your face, and quickly cycle them back and forth.They’re working fine.It’s a quiet drive from the complex to the mall. Far be it from you to break the silence.The three of you are let out inside a parking structure, and you quickly find your own ways into the mall and your positions.You keep your eyes open as you walk your lane, and lay the smoke grenades into position.>[1/2]

First time you’ve ever been grateful for being, you know...gross.You stand and continue to play with your phone as you check out what’s going on ahead of you. The girls are sitting underneath a large white tent with their company’s logo all over it, behind a folding desk.Uh oh. If those desks are like your desks you’re going to need to go around them.Two men are beside them, one on each side, as suspected. You pan your head.You have one guard to your 9, another at your 11, one at your 3, and another on your 1.So...one less than you were expecting. That’s good. Better, at least. You might have a chance now.Wendy comes on over the comm line, quietly, and whispers into your ear, “It’s your call, Michelle. Say when.”>Now>Not yet>Other

>>31970754You clench your legs together and suck in your stomach and walk quickly and with purpose across the court. The photos showed a food court behind the tower and the girls. If you can get there…You keep your head down and do your best to walk like a water balloon ready to pop.>Roll a 3d10 Performance check>>31970912Thanks for playing and good night Anon!Catch you on the flipside.

Rolled 3, 7, 3 = 13>>31970937is that best of 3 again?
>>31970953Always best of 3 in Wetwork Idols.
Rolled 7, 4, 2 = 13>>31970937
>>31970962mind reposting the dice rules? I've forgotten how they work
>>31970993Sure. Wetwork Idols uses a system called ORE (one Roll Engine) for its dice mechanics.Every character has Stats, and Skills. To get your dice pool, you take your Stat, add in the relevant Skill, and any situational modifiers, and roll that many d10.ORE plays a bit like poker. You're looking for matching dice in your pool. 10 10s is the best success possible, 2 2s is the worst success (but still a success!).I'm on my third beer, so hopefully I actually answered your question.
Rolled 10, 10, 6 = 26>>31970937>>Roll a 3d10 Performance checkI got it i got dis!

>>31971030>>31971076mfw i actually did itgodamn i hope ops doin my restroom suggestion ploy
>>31971030so better the stat + skill modifiers equals how many d10's we roll, then the better matching numbers/pairs, the better the success, seems simple enough though with low dice pool counts, prone to low odds of success>>31971076unless you're this lucky
>>31971106Keep in mind I take the best of 3. So even though you're rolling a "low," pool, you've got three shots to succeed.Most of the time, the odds are more in your favor than if I were GMing the P&P version.>also have been writing

So briskly, in fact, that the guard at your 12 on the north end of the table actually moves out of your way and lets you pass.You whisper into the air, “Now.”You thumb the small, coin sized detonator in your pocket and quickly tap your thermals into infrared as the space around you pops like a chicken being dismembered and smoke floods the scene.“Go go go go!”You reach into your bag for your gun and turn around.Rata-tat-tat. Wendy and Skyler begin firing. Now you need to do your job.>Surprise round!>Roll 5d10 (Coordination 2 + Guns 2 +1d Surprise!)
Rolled 1, 7, 2, 4, 3 = 17>>31971183pop pop pop watching motherfuckers drop
>>31971211well that was pathetic, heres hoping the other anons roll better
Rolled 9, 7, 2, 10, 1 = 29>>31971183>>31971218I make no promises. At least shooting is what we're good at
>>31971252>At least shooting is what we're good atapparently not...
>>31971252>>31971211You know, by the book's own table, 5d is a 70% chance of success.Good thing we're doing best of 3, so y'all get one more chance before you beef it.
>>31971286the book is full of shit when it comes to /tg/ dice
>>31971295Yeah, the way the dice are seeded on /tg/ is janky as fuck.Another reason for best of rolling.
Rolled 1, 3, 2, 2, 4 = 12>>31971183well I'm gonna roll again seeing as 3rd anon is nowhere to be foundfuck you dice gods
>>31971321I'll allow it.>Writing
>>31971321>2, 2fucking finally
>>31971183>2x2>Most minimal of successes possibleYou begin firing, out of anxiety or excitement, before you fully shoulder your weapon, causing it to walk well beyond what you were prepared to control with your stance. But, as ugly as it is, enough of the 5mm rounds hit your man as to cut him down in a spray of brightly colored splatter.Wendy has her first target down. Skyler has killed his.You sweep counterclockwise and bring your sights down on the man who was at your 10, and is now at your 12.>Roll 4d10>The enemy has now engaged. Better hope your rolls do better than theirs.
Rolled 7, 9, 9, 2 = 27>>31971426So that we know of, there's only this guard and the targets left, right?
Rolled 6, 9, 6, 10 = 31>>31971426C'mon dice, don't fuck us now
>>31971453I'll update my map.
>>31971426>>31971453Updated to account for dead and the fact that there are only six, not seven.
Rolled 2, 7, 2, 1 = 12>>31971488okay, so the orange dot represents both girls?rolling again because i think you've only got 2 anons left this late
>>31971507Orange can be thought of to represent the table, and both girls.As for anons, seems like. It's gotten late for everyone, even me on PST time.Gotta go fast, the beer is setting in.
Rolled 9, 5, 2, 2 = 18>>31971426derp, passed out for a sec there, now I've got food im good
Rolled 4, 5, 2, 5 = 16>>31971523>As for anons, seems like. It's gotten late for everyone, even me on PST time.only 6:40pm here, I'm still good to go for some time yet
>>31971426You see muzzle flashes all around you, but only hear only one scream of pain and agony as the life leaks out of his open mouth. From the direction, it sounded like Skyler stepped into the courtyard to engage the last man, and that Wendy missed her shots.You assume none of them scored hits. Your shots do, and you watch as spots of orange and red cool to greens and blues and, eventually, fade into nothingness as the heat leaves his blood.There is only one combatant left. Wendy will probably kill him.There are two idols, shaking, crouching, underneath their table.Skyler stands, watching, “Whatever you’re going to do, do it. We’re running out of time.”>Make your move, Michelle.
>>31971611Make it quick, one shot through the head.We have a job that involves killing teen girls, we should probably try to limit how horrible we're going to feel about doing this later.>>31971599>only 6:40pm herelucky you, it's nearly 3 am where I am
>>31971611Did we bring grenades? if so pop them in their mouths, attach some string to them, pull the pins, then when we're at a safe distance, pull the string releasing the spoons if they are Ye Olde style grenades, if not, detonate them when we're at a suitable distance.>>31971642>We have a job that involves killing teen girls, we should probably try to limit how horrible we're going to feel about doing this later.oh I know, but we get paid more for how we do it:>>31962979>The girls need to die, you’ll make extra bank depending on how greedy and murderously disgusting you are.
>>31971654 here againan alternative would be to give one a pistol with 1 round in it and tell her to kill the other girl, if not we kill her, then we give the remaining girl the same pistol with 1 bullet, and she can choose, kill herself or force us to do it
>>31971654The subordinate clause there was actually referring to the bounty out on the guards.Yates' comment about the spree killing is:>"As long as they’re [the idols] dead within or near the mall, although the company naturally prefers a most grizzly, blood splattered tent.”
>>31971654>>31971664Michelle didn't handle the last round of child-killing we had to all that well. I don't know if she could bring herself to feed grenades to civilians....yet.
>>31971668>The subordinate clause there was actually referring to the bounty out on the guards.oh? the wording in >>31962979 heavily implies we get extra for how brutal we murder the girlsif thats not the case, then just pop them in the head, quick and clean
>>31971693oh I know, I was just being extra brutal for the money, but that might not be the case re: >>31971668, I'm kind of confused who >The girls need to die, you’ll make extra bank depending on how greedy and murderously disgusting you are.was directed towards now
>>31971694Sorry for being unclear with my wording.Your encounters with Yates so far have been pretty brief, but you definitely get the impression he'd warm up a lot to you the more grotesque the crime scene.In addition, you'd probably get a lot more sensational news coverage.Your monetary reward, though, wouldn't change. Just your reputation.
>>31971706The guards. Parse it as "The girls need to die [the idols], you'll make extra bank depending on how greedy and murderously disgusting you are [in regards to whether you kill or don't kill their guards]."
>>31971722>>31971729right, then we make it quick, clean and painless for the girls
>>31971730 here againalso, you might want to force a line break or something to separate the sentence and focus it towards who its directed at, because it seems to just be a run on sentence still directed at the girls
>>31971730And I thought I was going to be able to write Michelle snapping in a big way.>writing in 5
>>31971740Taken into consideration for any further interactions with Yates.
>>31971741I'm sure the other followers would have been impressed with us if we started the next thread waking up in a padded room wearing a straitjacket
>>31971779Oh no, the consequences would have been far less immediate.
>>31971793I guess that option would imply that the company actually cared.
>>31971779yeah, I'd like to keep her sane and not end up like the creeps we met in the last thread, hell, if we could capture an idol instead of kill her I'd go for it, and keep her as a maid/servant at home just to be merciful
>>31971803The Company does care, it's just that it's priorities and morals are less than human.
>>31971611You pull your service sidearm out from underneath your jacket and release the safety. You walk slowly over to the girl to your right, and crouch down. She’s curled into a ball, crying.You settle the muzzle of your pistol against her head and fire twice.Shots to the temple are notoriously unreliable. You don’t want to have an accident.The second girl begins shuffling away from you as fast as she can on the palms of her hands, the heels of her feet, and her bottom.She doesn’t make it far before Skyler steps in and grabs her by her ponytail, and lifts her so far up she’s at eye level with you.You make eye contact, and raise your gun right between her eyes.You whisper, “Bang.”Your gun echos you, and Skyler drops her corpse to the ground. Wendy sheaths a knife and drops it into her bag, and the three of you leave quickly, the smoke still thick in the air.You figure this entire engagement took less than 30 seconds.It’s a quiet ride back to the Complex.Think on your sins, Michelle. You have plenty of time.END SESSIONQuestions, comments, concerns, et al. can go here and I’ll answer them until I sign off tonight. Stay up to date on twitter @WetworkIdols.

>>31971898Thanks for the thread OP, good to be back in the action, I'm looking forward to getting paid and some more SoL funtimes.
Rolled 4, 7, 7, 5 = 23>>31971898I think it's going to be interesting to see how she deals with this latest little debacle, and any fallout with Wendy or Skyler, considering the earlier spaghettifest.Do regret not getting in earlier, but my group's GM had life happen, so I've been trying to scrape something together,
Thread is archived.>>31971930You're very welcome anon.
>>31971941I can tell you right now it won't be anything as dramatic as if Michelle had stuffed the idols with grenades like they were turkeys on Thanksgiving.
