Your vision crawls and sputters, feeding you short, bright glimpses of the stairwell, the shattered roof, the rubble beneath you. You roll over onto your front and grimace – splinters, big ones, almost too big to be splinters, really, all over your arms. No blood, so they can’t have gone deep. Can’t smell any blood.At the top of the stairs, the figure flickers and flutters this way and that, light twisting in undecided, chaotic anti-symmetry about its head. You remember everything becoming sort of weightless, the dust and the rubble and anything not tied down slowly rising into the air, and then a tremendous screeching at the seat of your spine, clawing through you, telling you to get out. And then everything went everywhere and you were on the floor. “Telekinetic.” That’s Laura’s voice. You turn to your side, just in time to see her withdraw a long shard of bloodstained glass from her belly. Kevin slumps nearby, nursing a bloody bruise along the top of his head and coughing violently. “Beta-output at least.”
Beta what? Head swimming, you take stock of your surroundings. The top of the building has been levelled, erupting outwards. The others – Paige, her dog friend, the candy-pink girl – lie strewn through the rubble. You don’t see the punk chick, Marrow, anywhere. “Come on, come on…” Paige mutters frantically as she lifts the dog boy off the ground, running her hands through his fur for injuries. She appears unscathed, though it’s kinda hard to tell – looks like she’s shifted into some kind of granite-like form upon hitting the ground.The vampire – the girl, she’s just a girl – caves inward, clawing at her head, a deep whine rising through the air, like a moan stretched out into its every constituent intonation. She’s just some chick with running makeup and dumb dyed hair and – and she unscrews her eyes, and they’re like muddy waters, and they go on and on…>Hunger Level: 5>Current Funds: $0.00>Present Time: ow man your head ow>[ ] Retreat.

If JJ gets the Warp Spasm power, can he still get severe riastrad in a really angry and emotional moment?Does Al-Qaeda exist in the HMQverse?If JJ were in the DCU, what would his power level be like?In the Spider-Man film(s) made in HMQverse, what is Spidey's origin story? Or origin stories?What is Peter's IQ in the HMQverse? I really hope it's not that "north of 250" bullshit, 'cause that sounds like something that would come from a comic in the 1960s or 1970s and not 2009.I mean like how does JJ feel about very human looking mutants hiding the fact they're mutants? And getting away with it clearly, acting like normal superheroes and having a "perfect" life?
>>32200320While she is, i doubt making ourselves an obvious threat and thus causing an instinctual action of self defense with a power she cant control would be a wise thing to do.

>[X] Make sure all the wounded get out of the vicinity..>[X] Try to talk her down. You can do it Nicky.Those eyes. Like vast, frothing swamp waters. No end, just deeper and deeper shadows. It takes you a moment to find your voice. “O-okay!” Okay what? What were you going to say, again? Snip-snap, everything stretches out, and in, and then your thoughts roll back into focus. Oh yeah. “Paige, get your friends out of here! Now! Laura, Kevin needs to be out of here too!” Laura nods and drags Kevin up, eliciting a pained groan from the boy. As she backs away from the stairs and the crackling figure, she turns toward you momentarily, her expression blank. “Be careful.” Nodding back, you check your left to make sure Paige is getting her friends out (speaking of which, the pixie girl appears to have just upped and vanished) and step forward, gingerly making your way toward the base of the stairs. “Hey!” How are you supposed to go about this, exactly? “Hey, we’re not here to hurt you, we’re not attacking you or anything! Just calm down! We’re”– Her neck twists awkward, and her eyes focus on you. A clash of distorted sound bubbles up in her throat, eventually resolving into a voice: “No! No! Nowthere’sth r r r e e e e e e on the sh e e lf”– What? Strong accent. Accents. She keeps bumbling in and out of different regions, different tones. She stops suddenly and clutches at her head. “They are coming for us, Irma! They are!” The air twists. You see the fire slashing across the horizon, the lake, the dunes. Then you’re back, and she’s screaming. >[ ] Okay.jpg>[ ] Words seem useless here. Deploy tasers. >[ ] Or rocks.

>>32200748We are JJ motherfucking Green, a bomb would most certainly listen to our words of wisdom
>>32200719See >>32200507A few threads ago we grabbed a 1 meter long piece of rebar and stuffed it in under our coat.
>>32200748Nah, I'm just pretty sure a rock would be TK'd back at us and tasers puts us in range.Although if we had a bomb that could talk back...

>[X] Okay.jpg>[X] Deploy tasers. Somehow, you get the impression you’re not getting through to her. Casting your eyes about, you sift through the rubble for that length of rebar you brought along, dust stinging in your ey e e s – sand slithers off you as you heave yourself up, wind high overhead, tide sighing in and in and in and in and – …and… and… when did you pick up that rebar? The cold, metallic weight sits uneasily in your grasp. Did you just lose a few seconds? How did you… You shake it off, shoving it back. Gotta get up there and switch her off, or something. Rushing up the stairs, you jab at her with the rebar. You’re not gonna hit her or anything, just send a few volts down the end. She doesn’t seem to notice you till you make contact, a sharp, electrical snap filling the air as the metal touches her bared midsection. Releasing a terrified shriek, the girl throws herself back, flatting her back against the wall aaaaa a a a nnn dd d d d d – The fire rips through you, you hit the sand, oh Christ, maggots, they feel like fire under your skin, spewing through the stringy lengths of your arms, up your shoulders, popping and squirming in your stomach – “JJ?” You hit the wall, suspended in a vice of invisible force. She’s looking you. Where are you? Are you – “Jay Jay?”Her voice sounds like Jo – o – o – “Okay!” You shout, desperate. The invisible hand drops you, depositing you unceremoniously to one side of the stairwell. “Okay, okay! You’re clearly, you’re clearly… having some trouble… just calm down and”– The empty air closes around your throat. You’d gasp if you could. Can’t breathe. Can’t – “J-j-j-jj-j-j-jjjjjjjjjJay Jay…?” Sounds like –>[ ] “Yeah it’s me it’s Jay Jay…” [just go with it, whatever]>[ ] “You don’t know me.” [try to talk some sense into her] >[ ] Still got that rebar.

>(1/2)>[X] [just go with it, whatever]“Yeah it’s me it’s Jay Jay…” What else can you say? What else can you do? You can barely even say it, the vice is so tight around your throat, you can feel your flesh callousing up, lumping together into ugly, bright bruises… The pressure softens. She heaves out something between a cough and a sob. “Jay Jay? Jay J- a aaaa a a”– That is her voice, isn’t it? Exactly the way you remember. And then it shifts, and distorts, and takes on a Southern note, and something else, something more masculine… “They loved me for years! Years! They all loved me, and then it all just… it all just evaporated!” She spits it out like a curse. “God, they just… they threw me to the fucking wolves! Even Steve couldn’t stop them!” They loved me and then they just – just – just”–Her image flickers back and forth, eyes wheeling, face twitching incognisantly.

You’re underneath the stars. The lake stretches out. Fire looms over the remains of your house, an orange scar in the silence of the night. Covered in blood, yours, not yours. She squats like a gargoyle and holds you tight with invisible telekinetic bands, blood welling up along your arms and legs, cold breeze pulling your teeth together over and over and over and – “…killed me in the sand.” The night falls away. Reality, dim and painful, fills your vision. She sobs into her hands, her every movement carving erratic telekinetic scars into the walls.

You swipe your arm through the air, biting back a slight stab of pain as you knock the grisly knife aside. It ricochets off the nearby door hinge – just as you, somehow, knew it would – and flies straight into the flat of Marrow’s back. Her eyes bulge in baffled pain, the force driving her face-first into the floorboards, blood bursting from an undoubtedly shattered nose. Yeah, that’s right, you’re JJ Motherfucking Green, king of the hat trick, bitch should’ve thought twice before she – A deafening roar fills your ears, sending your senses wild. For a moment everything is everything else – touch is taste is sight is sound – and you scrabble desperately across the floor. Slowly, reality reasserts itself. The girl is doubled over, her flesh swimming, skin bulging and flexing like taffy. Bits of her arms and her hair and legs keep shifting in and out of invisibility, and her shoulders can’t decide whether they want to be… well, shoulders… or jutting pauldrons of calloused, scaly tissue. Claws burst through her fingertips and her teeth extend into row upon row of jagged fangs. Heat rises from her in crackling, rolling waves, and you’re suddenly sitting in an oven, suddenly watching as her flesh splits and her bones lengthen, tongue lashing, glowing with metabolic fire.“Mom!” It roars, churning, glowing spines erupting along its spine. “Dad! Joyce!” Your heart beats faster. You know that rage. You it well. You feel your pulse quickening, shortening, synchronizing with hers.>[ ] Run. >[ ] Don’t run.
>>32202429Probably, but there is less time to react when your dealing with melee combat. Just because you can see where it's going doesn't mean you fast enough to do anything about it.If you want to get better at melee combat (or ranged combat) more levels in agility would be best, since it increases reflexes.

>>32203110Well, rogue still has her rogue powers, so if we get in a fist fight while Shea's claws and comparable agility and senses to ours I'm guessing JJ loses.Kind of concerned by the lack of a roll for this next bit to be honest. Hopefully we don't fold outright.
>>32203092You support keeping the power or using it now to keep it? Because we need to be really careful

>>32203223>>32203224Well, there's at least that then. Still a bad idea to use it now though. Or in any actually dangerous situation for that matter.
>>32203127>>32203184>>32203225Because we didn't know she had touch-based powers IC.Rogue's fairly well known to us, but not in-universe. It's an easy thing to forget - hell, I screwed up on that count further up thread.

>>32203219I'm not going to lie. The whole dragon thing is awesome. But having a power that's only good for melting peoples faces off is kind of pointless. There are only three people I would be OK with melting their faces off. And, one of them is completely immune to it.We need more non-lethal attacks given JJ's aversion to killing.

>[X] Don’t run.Can’t run. You struggle to your feet, using the bannisters for support. Can’t just get away. As much as you despise her dumb ass, you can’t leave Marrow in the line of fire. And you can’t leave this person either. Her flesh wells up and stretches, tearing and reforming, fire churning in her veins, turning her into a criss-crossing, hell-coloured lightshow. The smell of burning flesh fills your nose and you gag, and you feel your own heart responding, your own veins burning… It hurts. Wait. Got to grab Marrow by her dumb hair. Got to – Sand in your eyes. You laugh and laugh. Calf opens and you feel blood burn across your leg, so hot, practically fire. Heart thrums with rage, hers, yours, no difference. There’s no difference in your pulse anymore. No difference in your breath. She looks up at you, scaled features pulled and twisted about in fury, sclera like steaming pitch, irises like exploding suns, like Cherenkov’s withering blue glow… Yours are the same. You cough and it comes out as a low, bestial rumble. You don’t feel weak anymore. Light passes in spots through your vision. Each one is a memory. Each one bites into your skull, pulling, eking, tearing. She gets up, claws flexing, hunger in her belly, your belly. She took Joyce away. You took Joyce away. Failed. In the sand. It’s her/your fault forever, should pay, must pay, must eat, feed, hurt, revenge, territory, hate, hate, hate – Names buzz in your head. JoyceJoanJoshuaJonathanJoseph. Typhon. Typhon. Father of all monsters, born from Gaia, spawned in horror, slaughterer of gods. Monster. Monsters. You remember, remember 1954, remember, it wasn’t 1954, it was some other year, you were nine, you sat down with your dad. What is strong? What is powerful? What always wins? What has scales and fiery breath and you were always it when you played pretend? 1954. Gojira. King of monsters.You open your mouth. “SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEONK!”

>(2/2)“Jonathan? Jonathan?” You feel yourself coming to. “Jonathan!?” Warm hands under your head. Everything’s warm. You open your eyes and for a moment you can’t see though the haze of heat. When your eyes adjust, you realize that you’re looking up at sky, and snow, and Laura’s eyes. She goes quiet when you meet her gaze, and for a moment you just stew in that strange heat, feeling strangely expunged, strangely clean, and strangely full. “W-what…?” You shift your head, and see nothing but ash around you. The building has come down, and whatever was left of it is burned beyond recognition. Were it not for the skyline, you’d have no idea where you are. The girl lies in the ash, breathing slowly, eyes closed. Her clothes are in tatters and there are thin scars winding their way up and down the entirety of her body. They’re healing, bit by bit. She looks… peaceful. Drained. Like the strings pulling at her from every angle just snapped and let her crash down into a well-deserved rest. Your breath smells of charcoal. And ozone.

>>32203747>we can just live off sunlightThinking about this again, I just realized that JJ should become a hermit. He can just live at the top of a mountain, sitting there forever.
>>32203722we just got a prime example of why not controlling your powers is dangerous to yourself and everyone around you. the potential danger is reason enough>>32203773we got enough powers to cover JJ's ass when invis drops, Shadow Field is a luxury imo.
>>32203813>we got enough powers to cover JJ's ass when invis dropsI'd rather we have it anyway, so he can still have some measure of concealment.>>32203798I'd be fine with this too, but I expect just one.If two, I'll back your plan. If one, I'll go with Photo 1 and Shadowfield
>>32203813>the potential danger is reason enoughMaybe it is, maybe it isn't.JJ is not a rational creature about fire and its dangers.But it is apples and oranges to claim that him braving fire in immediate danger is enough for him to consider facing it just for abstract, higher-reasoning motives, rather than things down in the lizard brain.
Honestly, I don't care for photosynthesis. It offers way too little to blow an x-point on it. We can only feed ourselves with it and not even completely without several points. Not to mention all the job opportunities we have now.
>>32203812JJ: Wise mutant hermit. Homeless mutants all seek his advice and sweet piano skills.
>>32203866JJ: Uncle Patches, or Patches the Sage>>32203852It'll keep us from starvation, at the least.
>>32203852Yeah, forget photosynthesis.as a gateway to some far future mad money making scheme it is far too future looking.making money won't help us with the adventure dangers this quest throws at us.
>>32203852I'd Rather an Animal Mimicry. I cant believe no one ever talks about it. Potential out the wazoo.
>>32203852With it we eventually open up the potential for mass production of any plant products.

>>32203852>We can only feed ourselves with itits a prerequisite for Green finger, taking it would open that route up if you're interested.>Not to mention all the job opportunities we have now.JJ's life/situation/genetics aren't stable enough to comfortably guarantee continued employment. last time we got a job, we exploded a few days later and woke up in a cocoon.I prefer being self sufficent
>>32203891At level 1; We'd be able to walk around town as a normal looking person by taking Laura with us and swapping saliva every now any then.Once we get to level 5 will we be able to turn into Marrow?
>>32203901JJ: King of weed.But in seriousness: the reduction in hunger, ability to boost our powers and the fact it would negate any nutritional penalty we are under is more than enough to warrant it.
>[X] All.“What ha”– You seize up, trailing off into a fit of coughing. Lungs feel soft. New. Placing a hand at your back, Laura slowly steers you up. “…What happened?”“I do not know.” Laura responds quietly, slinging one of your arms over her shoulders. You make to pull away, stand on your own feet, but find that you can’t. Not feeling much like walking. Not feeling much like… anything. Like all the energy just got vacuumed straight out of you. “There was a large blast and the building caught aflame.” You make another attempt to bear your own weight, and are quickly reprimanded by Laura twisting your wrist. “Do not exert yourself.” She says. “You are showing all the typical signs of extreme fatigue.” “Oh…” You don’t feel that bad. In a way, you feel pretty great. You’re not even tired, just… drained. “Where, um, where’s everyone else?” You can’t help but let a slight touch of dread into your voice. “Kevin is fine. He is resting nearby. His wound is not deep.” Turning, she glances off into the cluttered horizon of the scar. Night clings close to the earth now. Must’ve been out for a while. “The others left earlier. Paige Guthrie stayed until the fire died down.”Okay.“What about her?” You nod in the girl’s direction. “She appears to be intact.” Sometimes it kinda creeps you out when Laura uses words like ‘intact’ to refer to people. “Many of her wounds are consistent with various kinds of deep tissue damage – fourth degree burns, bite marks, claw incisions…” She cuts herself off suddenly, giving you the impression that she could’ve gone on much longer. “But is almost fully healed. Her ability must allow her to replicate the powers of other mutants.” Yeah, you kinda figured that one out. >[ ] Take her home.>[ ] Drop her off with the Young X-Men. >[ ] Or with the Hellions.

>>32203946Theres also stuff like say, chomping on an ant or two, and then being able to generate Formic Acid. Or getting equivalent ant Strength, or getting better wings from eating some Burd or something.In fact, now that im thinking about it, I wonder why no ones brought it up solely for the fetish fuel potential..

>>32204017photosynthesis alone will help fight off the malnutrition that limits JJ's strengthif we take strength 3 and shake off malnutrition, we'd be as stronk as pete (5-7 tons I think)
>>32203700Look, I know some people like DB, but find a better reason to level it, like JJ is getting his psyche together, and overcomes his phobia, and uses DB for legitimate purposes AND to fuck with his enemies (as long as it wont kill them).I'm not saying you're wrong to like it, just flesh out your reasoning for JJ to do it, so the story benefits more. Next thread we might have time to overcome his fire phobia, but remember it doesn't necessarily need to be DB that does it (because failing with that shit could really scar his psyche).I personally prefer sonics, but I think if you're going to do something, do it well, anon. So if this is what you want, do it well.>>32203990>[ ] Take her home.Young X-men would be rough on her, Hellions...yeah no, she'd just split.>[ ] Find a way to get her back that doesn't involve skin-to-skin contact.Call the others w/ cell phone, maybe get Gabriella out here with a few to help McGuyver something together.>>32203996I was thinking 'JJ turns into something that looks like Godzilla, but due to international copyright laws, it's not.'
>>32203990shall we also inquire about Marrow's fate?
>>32203750This is what Crusty said JJ's theme is and I fell it fits so well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYuA_c_6if8
>>32204111>I was thinking 'JJ turns into something that looks like Godzilla, but due to international copyright laws, it's not.'What about a simple SKREEEOONK!
>>32204111Seconded on that first part.>>32204139No. JJ's theme is Raindrop.Body Heat by Quincy Jones is either JJ and Victoria's theme or JJ's and Laura's.
>>32203990>[ ] Take her home.We will have all the misfit mutants.
>>32204111man, I wanted Optic Force blasts. JJ could have had dime store omega beams that could grab stuff (we would never have to ask someone to pass the salt again!) Hell I didn't even want the vote to happen right there.if its POS power, then I want it confirmed in the field, in the game, not because random anons say something and keep it locked up.
>>32204138Just pretend she never existed and that we're not currently craving the taste of human flesh
>>32204148The only thing that sound effect reminds me of is that, "Can you fuck it?" picture?
>>32204107I see your point, but we could also just buy food and do the same thing. I won't whine if photofags win the vote, but I won't vote for it myself anon. I'm aiming for agility. We've been doing much more fighting recently, not as much sneaking.
>>32204111 The whole dragon thing is awesome. But having a power that's only good for melting peoples faces off is kind of pointless. There are only three people whose faces I would be OK with melting off. And, one of them is completely immune to it.We need more non-lethal attacks given JJ's aversion to killing. Finding reasons to use a power just so that it wont atrophy is stupid. We don't need DB to practice fighting out phobia.
>>32204188>relying on money
>>32204181>man, I wanted Optic Force blastsmy mugga, it would've been so great with our geointuitive vision, especially when we unlocked multiple direction changes!
>>32204203If we get to the point where we can't make any money for food then our little family will starve while we are the only ones fed anyways.
>>32204203>relying on money>not praying to the All-Mighty Dollar
>>32204236That's what green finger is for, mugga.Plus, I bet if we did the healing blood thing we could make healing fruits.
>>32204203Jobs are surprisingly useful for networking you know.
What ever happen to the gray mutint we picked up after the ship exploded?
>>32204199Melting of faces is the problem, I think. JJ is very much a human person, so it's powers don't suit him.>>32204186Thankfully anon, it's easy to, because we're not.>>32204181I like your wording of how it works. I think the limit on ranged powers here is kinda...I dunno. Fire works as a theme for JJ, but it being locked sucks.
>>32204270Farmer JJ, the wise mountain hermit? To combine an earlier thing. We need to get a pitchfork to channel tasers through.
>>32204199>inb4 he brings up matches would do the same thing.fire is a tool. melt snow for water, warmth, light. it'd need to be trained though... (all the more reason to imo)>>32204236Green finger exists, and taking photosynthesis is necessary for it lessens its overall costwe could grow our on mushroom farm right in the tunnel and no one would ever know.>>32204311Chat's detective pals found his home while we were all cocooned up
>>32204311Detective agency found the parents or something to that effect
>>32204270>green fingerI'm iffy on that. I'll consider it when things calm down a little. We've had nonstop action for awhile now. Green Finger is too slow.
>>32204370low maintenance though.and I think with the "vampire" being caught, things will quiet down
>[X] Home.“I guess… I guess we gotta take her home.” Laura cocks her head to one side, bright green mysteries boring into the side of your head. She watches you for a long time, saying nothing, before looking back at the young girl curled up amidst the ash and rubble. You know there’s something going on in there, some internal process, but she doesn’t voice it. She simply waves over to a far-off slab of still-standing plaster. Blinking, you disentangle Kevin’s silhouette from its shadow. “I think”– You cough again. Everything inside feels all soft. “I think she needs my jacket.” Laura helps you pull it off, and you realize that there’s very little left of that baggy hoodie of yours, its midsection yawning open. Your gloves are little more than a few oddly-placed strings of tattered fabric, and there are long tears stretching along your jeans at regular intervals. At least your shades are alright.Kevin carries the girl, and Laura carries you. You breathe in and taste the air. It crackles under your nostrils, like something cooked through the crust, like something infectious. You have a bad feeling. -------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ71: END>Congratulations! You’ve earned TWO X-Points!>Congratulations! You are (not) the Hulk!>Congratulations! You didn’t die!If I can I’ll be running on Wednesday.
>>32204429So, Crusty, did we eat Marrow?
>>32204429Photo 1&2did we kill marrow?
>>32204429Someone needs to make a JJ-zilla, with shades. Right now.
>>32204429Why did Laura gave us a weird look?Sure, she kind of almost killed us but we have to be responsible
>>32204449>>32204453Haha no. You ate some of her and some of Rogue.
>>32204477So Paige took what was left of her back with them?
>>32204429Did you see >>32200356
>>32204477So we've got 4 X-points?
>>32204429Thanks for running>Agility
Rolled 17>>32204477HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT'S EVEN WORSE
>>32204429We've got 4 now right?Get dat rank 5 invisibility.
>>32204477Is marrow dead?
>>32204477>light cannibalism all the reason for photosynthesis
>>32204429>two X-pointsIncoming shitstorm...
>>32204429Thanks for running Crusty!As for points:Vote for photosynthesis. (at least level 1)
>>32204477we just made some enemies didn't we
>>32204477Did...Did we shooby do wop the zim zam boozolas?
>>32204429Laura's annoyed with us for getting us yet another mouth to feed. Or possibly jealous.Or worried because we ate people bits.Who knows.>TWO X-Points!So that's four total. Leaning towards either shadow field+subdermal or agility+photosynth.
>>32204528Holy shit seconding this question really, really fucking hard.
>>32204429>We are not the Hulk.But are we Lung? From Worm.ingrow Graphic, indeed, Captcha.
>>32204541one was out of her mind,the other was taking the piss out of us until this. I think were probably going to have her respect now.
>>32204552Subdermal & Shadow field.
>>32204524Level 5 = wonder woman's invisible JetBut we don't have a jet to turn invisible.>Agility>Photo
I'm split between Invis 5 and and Druid.>>32204465Probably due to us being found unconcious in a weird position with Rogue.>>32204489Hauled her stupid beaten-up/chewed-on form back wherever, yeah.
>>32204503Yes.>>32200356Yes.Sure.Same. DC has more powerful people on Earth but Marvel has more in space.Chosen by a radioactive Spider God.Higher than average.I assume he'd be jealous but understand why they do what they do.>>32200714This is perfection.
>>32204566I doubt that.we probably got our first person with the Hater level
Can we at least get wings to a level were they're not useless?
Infact:Photo 1 and Wings 3
>>32204576Pretty sure we can also invis the entire group.>Invisibility rank 5
>>32204594And love it, anon. It's just like Alpha Protocol.
>>32204528No. Healing factor.
we can finally get rank 5 in Invisibility.
>>32204588>Chosen by a radioactive Spider God.I can just imagine how ridiculous that must have been."Oh no, that Spider God stepped into the radiation experiment!"
Wings 3 would be pretty [/spoiler]-Fly-[/spoiler
all the points we can into photoWE JUST ATE PARTS OF LIVING PEOPLE
>>32204619Shit I forgot about wings...>Wings and Photoor>Agility and Photo
I unfortunately can't stay around for the voting shitstorm that's coming.Just try not to get anything TOO stupid, guys.
>>32204588Is >>32200714 JJ's new theme song?.Is JJ immune to DB? I'm asking you because there are people saying he could breath db, the higher level versions, onto himself and be okay and I'd rather hear if that's right or not from you. If he can breath the fire onto himself and be okay why isn't he resistant to regular fire then? What's so different about DB's fire? It's hell fire isn't it?.How should I envision DB? Should I be imagining something like Smaug's or Aldrich Killian's fire breath where it has an effect, making them light up with internal fire, before it's breathed out? Or should I view dragon breath working like a flame thrower where he breathes out the chemicals and they'd ignite as they leave his mouth/thought by something, maybe JJ's Uvula generates a electrical spark like his hands do or something, creating a dragons breath, but without the internal lighting up visuals?.What does the roar from ANIMAL AFFINITY sound like? Is it a regular Godzilla roar?.Would Animal Affinity have any sort of effect on people, like Dr.Connors (The Lizard) or Wolfsbane, who have animal characteristic? .Did/Does JJ's sister play an instrument? Is it the violin?.If JJ lost a limb would it grew back a little different? Maybe a little scalier?
>>32204695Calm down. Rogue at just as much of us as we did of her and besides, everything's grown back.
>>32204698Seconding Agility and Photosynth.
>>32204705Anon, you know us. JJ will probably have Animal Affinity 5 soon.
>>32204698Or>Strength and PhotoI'm fine with either those three, really.
>>32204698but i don't want photo at all...
>>32204705And now we're jinxed, thanks Anon. Thanks.
>>32204731you don't make friends by eating themand what if next time doesn't have healing factor shenanigans
>>32204730JJ will have Blue flame man, Godzilla like.
Agility and bank.
>>32204695So... What happens when JJ needs to poop? "Oh, oh god, is that a hand?!?">>32204429Backing Photo 1 + wings 3
>>32204643She's got a grudge against JJ now doesn't she?
>>32204754>you don't make friends by eating themTrue. You make friends by complementing them on their taste.
>>32204705please stay i have a bad feeling the druids might have enough votes to win this time.[/sopiler
>>32204771JJ probably didn't even taste them
>>32204477What parts of her did we eat?
>>32204764>"Oh, oh god, is that a hand?!?""Oh good! Now I won't have to use my own.">>32204781I'm not a druid, but I think Photo 1 is a good choice at least.
>>32204754Anon, are you implying that the next time she absorbs our powers, she wont have regen?
>>32204786Calves. JJ made sure to roast them though. He's not an uncultured barbarian.
>>32204781Photosynthesis does not = druid.Can always vote against green finger etc.
>>32204796next time might be in the middle of times square
Okay seeing as most people seem to want Photosynth as a combo with something else, I'll be putting other powers out to vote on first, then you guys can decide whether you want to drop the remaining point in Photo or in the Bank. Unless you go for invisibility, that is.Post,>1 for Invisibility >2 or Enhanced Agility>3 for Winged Flight>4 to BankRemember, nothing but the number. Quoting is death, greentext is death.
>>32204771Damnit Carlos, I've had my fill of you.
>>32204752You act like saying it out loud would change it from happening anyways.
a vote for bank is a vote for cannibalism
3s and 4s!You will not win this vote! Join the 1s and maybe we can turn the tide!
>>32204927too late. Agility wins!
I just archived the thread.How good is my summary?
>>32204927I'd have voted for Photo 2 if that was an option
>>32204927Get shoved. i want Photosynth.
>>32204926>>32204928This is what I get for making pizza>>32204936>>32204944I think there's going to be a second vote.
Gotta throw fast
>>32204932Good job Anon.
>>32204927Considering >>32204926 I doubt it.>>32204936I thought it was. Along with everything that wasn't invis, agility and wings.Under 'bank'.
>>32204969Anon, I was just sitting around, wondering why the thread wasn't updating. Then I manually did it and voting over. :/At least Photo begins finally.
>>32203633I don't even care about the label applying to JJ in particular or not.But "no foresight" is most definitely stupidity. It is laughable to assert otherwise.
ENHANCED AGILITY takes it! JJ now even more Supaidaman!SECONDARY VOTEPost, >1 for Photosynthetic Biology>2 to Bank>>32204932It's very pretty, anon. Thanks for archiving.
>>32204993not if my vote has anything to say about it.
sadly, only photo 1 got enough support.ah well, maybe photo 2 some other time down the road
>>32204771>complementingYeah, you gotta make sure you taste great together.
Very much against cannibal JJ.
>>32205010Wait, what level of photosynth would we need for unlimited taser hand charges during daylight?
>>32204993My laptop died at exactly the minute before Crusty posted his 5pm “…What happened?” update post.And it took a while to get back so I missed vote too.
>>32205076Probably self sustaining. so 3.

>>32205135>my vote>>32205136>Votan closed.>one fucking secondHoly shit.Also, when will claws & fangs and some other powers change?
>>32205150Maybe they're just more into Soylent JJ Green?
>>32205060I'm very much FOR cannibal JJ!Wouldn't mind something to spice up the whiteknight.
>>32205150the that fact that it came down to a vote like this is encouragingthe fire risesthe cannibals cannot win forever.hope, a fine birthday present for myself>>32205162spite is a terrible reason to do anything
>>32205196>hope, a fine birthday present for myselfHappy Birthday, Anon!
>>32205181We are far from white knight.Spice doesn't need to be added, it just piles on.
>>32205181Ignoring the whole, "being a drug mule/criminal and planning on straight-up killing his former boss" are we?
>>32205214not that happy, we're still a cannibal
>>32205145JJ should start accepting liking raw meat. I wonder If we can get something to not get parasites and shit from raw meat?Can we get parasite resistance or something?
>>32205148The tears of hate or what? Because it just seems a bit sad to get that involved.>>32205174Maybe they just want to combat us up some more.>>32205181Like toothpaste and orange juice, right anon?
>>32204757I know it be blue flames, that's why I didn't ask what there color would be.
>>32205230>not that happy, we're still a cannibalUnwittingly.>>32205237>Can we get parasite resistance or something?Isn't that part of Healing 3?
>>32205237What, you mean cooking it? sounds like a job for DB
>>32205217QM introduced dark backstory.which /tg/ entirely ignores and voted only for justice.which considering killing crime lord isn't contradictory with.
I am actually surprised Photo lost so badly. I'm not even a druid supporter I just think photo is a good idea.Is there a specific reason people are voting against it?
>>32205230If a Snickers works for Godzilla when he gets a little Hungry then carrying one around should work perfectly fine for JJ.
>>32205237Because, why not, dumpster-meats...>>32205264It's alright, anon. One day.
>>32205269unwitting cannibalism is still cannibalism
>>32205237Actually resistance would be nice. We should get superhuman toughness or something like that.
>>32205162You are fully aware that if JJ didn't have to worry about food for himself and became healthier due to having some form of constant nutrition, he'd be able to do a helluva lot more, right?It's not ever a matter of 'lol, druids', he'd have nearly eliminated one of his fundamental needs if he has photosynthesis.But, y'know, other people gotta vote against it out of spite for not getting what they wanted.
>>32205280It lost by 3 votes. That is far from badly. In fact its only a small % that bank won out.
>>32205276Actually, the first few threads solidly showed JJ was trying to live a normal life and FUCK Creeper.
>>32205288>unwitting cannibalism is still cannibalismSo? Just because it happens once doesn't mean it'll happen again.
>>32205296Hey Crusty will there be consequences for being a cannibal like JJ getting Prions or getting Kuru?
>>32205280to prevent the money sink that is druid.
>>32205313You mean 40%? Yeah really fucking small.
>>32205324That is just naive.
>>32205296Hell Yeah. Moon Knight!
>>32205290>We should get superhuman toughness or something like that.Crusty said that with Strength 3 JJ would be more durable.And with Subdermal 5 & Strength 3 he'd be nearly as durable as a cockroach>>32205331What?
>>32205276Did you follow it from the beginning? Because we didn't know about the dark back story at first. We were well on our way to "justice" by the time we knew that JJ was a drug mule.
>>32205334Your maths is shit. 3 out of 24 is 12.5%
>>32205280There are only 2 utility slots.Burning one on a longshot "druid" plan that might never come to fruition doesn't seem too hot of an idea.
>>32205358Becoming a cannibal increases your chance of getting Prions especially if you eat the brains, genitals etc. Kuru is a disease attributed to cannibalism aka the "laughing disease".
>>32205331Healing factor would deal with most of the mundane problems that cannibalism can cause. But there are consequences.
>>32205402Oh okay.And is Prions that brain sponge thing?
>>32205369The specifics were not known, but it was clear JJ had criminal contacts and histry, he could've gotten henchman work easily but people voted for Minimum Wage Quest.
>>32205280Didn't lose by much. 4 votes.As to why people are against it? Possibly because the druids pushed too hard, with the same tired arguments time and again, to the point of irritation. The well has been poisoned.
>>32205399You reap what you sow, anon.
>>32205407I knew it we're gonna go insane because we're gonna get Kuru. Healing factor ain't shit if your brains are being ravaged by Prions, you'd go insane.>>32205423Yeah it turns your brains into mush often causes insanity.
>>32205398You said this: >>32205313>In fact its only a small % that bank won out.The vote won 14 to 10. That is 40%. I assumed that meant the percentage it won by, not the percentage of voters as a whole.
>>32205407I've always wondered if going villain would give us bad karma or something
>>32205454>Yeah it turns your brains into mush often causes insanity.We X-Files now?
>>32205341Different anon, I'd rather that JJ doesn't become a cannibal regardless because I think that'd set off an edgefag signal that this quest really doesn't need.>>32205334How are you this shitty at percentiles? 4 votes is not 40% of the vote.
>>32205407Oh so many horrible consequences.
>>32205276I've been here from the start, JJ's 2legit2quit attitude was part of his charm.>>32205238We're supposed to be stealth, we have a load of combat powers as it is. More utility is where it's at.
>>32205459Yes, anon. 40% of 10 is 4. A+++.
>>32205307I voted against because I didn't want it, don't get too full of yourselves.
>>32205313its popularity is increasing with every threadthis was a loss but an encouraging loss. 3 votes was that separated us from being grossly incandescent. It almost won against the mighty Jew bankers that roam these threads like a Tyrannosaurus. (and the smallhandful of anons that vote against it purely from spite)The fire rises anons, I will go see Godzilla in a bit, come back, finish my steak I had for brunch and then eat more birthday cake.>>32205449there was a small vocal group since it was brought up>>32205407thank you for running Crusty.I've also added NY ain't my home to the playlist.when photo eventually wins, should I add "here comes the sun" by the beetles or Lazy old sun by the kinks?
>>32205333As compared to?We have plenty of xp sinks already, one that can eliminate hunger is a fairly handy one.This being said, I'm only looking into a dip of photosynthesis for ourself.
>>32205473Just look up cannibalism and Kuru on Google. You could also do a search on Prions and cannibalism.
>>32205541>should I add "here comes the sun" by the beetles or Lazy old sun by the kinks?Maybe "Blistered by the Sun" by Smashmouth?Even the good (photo) brings the bad (sunburn or whatever).Or that Crazy Sunshine song.
>>32205459There there. Your smart if you believe yourself to be.But i highly suggest you go learn how this sort of thing is calculated properly before you fuck up somewhere you do not want to in life.
I'm not sure what to vote for next. I'm fine with agility now, and nothing else sticks out as a must have, hmm.
>>32205519So you vote for random loss of control, and getting sick.At least vote for extra healing next time then.Maxing photosyntesis will give us +1 to all other tings, and will save us money, and give us endurance.And even 1rst tier is good because it migrates downsides.Why the hell not?
>>32205595some people wish to spite those who want green finger
>>32205595I think we've maxed healing as far as we can go.All your other points are valid.
>>32205591How about the next level of healing factor? We just ate parts of people and we don't even know which part we ate. If we ate the brain that means we'd have a much higher chance of getting Prions than if we ate lean meat like the musculature on the arms and legs.
>>32205639Photosynthesis 4 would allow sun powerd healing boost, or boosting other powers past their cap.
>>32205595>>32205622I just don't think it's worthy of a point. But I just ran out of things I really want to vote for. i may vote for sinking one point into it if nothing else looks good, no more than that though.
>>32205595>So you vote for random loss of control, and getting sick.anon pls.
>>32205662Wait... We didn't max our healing factor? I thought lvl 3 was our limit?
>>32205662how prevalent are Prions in New York?
>>32205503I'm pretty sure that our general power selection parallels Twitch plays pokemon.>>32205622Given how much time it'll take, I think some people just want photo for photo, and maybe green finger next year.
>>32205622But free weed?And the prerequisites are actually useful.I don't like animal affinity much tho, but it is useful.Green finger is decent. But photosynthesis is good.Crusty plis no rabies.
The main reason i don't want druid is because i worry that people will force JJ into being some Hippy peace of shit who refuses to eat meat and veggies or something equally stupid because of his animal/plant friends or some bullshit.
>>32205684Healing is maxed out.Strength and healing are both capped at level 3.
>>32205709>But free weed?For some reason, this made me want to go down Druid Path.And I don't even smoke or vape or anything related to weed.
>>32205702It doesn't matter where you are if you eat human flesh your chances of getting Prions skyrockets. If you eat parts of humans that aren't lean muscle, your chances of getting Prions goes even higher.
>>32205737It's one of those phrases that make you do things subconsciously.Forgot what they're called.
>>32205729>The main reason i don't want druid is because i worry that people will force JJ into being some Hippy peace of shit who refuses to eat meat and veggies or something equally stupid because of his animal/plant friends or some bullshit.That is a really terrible reason anon. Not gonna lie.
>>32205734We don't have Strength 3.
>>32205744what were the chances to start with?
>>32205702en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PrionThey're caused by eating human flesh.>>32205729I wanted it because food for all. Doesn't mean we wont munch on a steak. It would be incredibly stupid if that happened.
>>32205729I think JJ is not the kind to do that.Food is food.
>>32205729Yea, animal/plan friends kinda suck.Crusty, can we change the animal affinity prerequisite to healing vitae, and grow plants from our blood?Also all the web fans plis vote for getting portable shield/armor at next opportune moment. We can get some armor for free.
>>32205772They mean we can improve both to a maximum of 3, anon, not that we have strength at 3
>>32205296Just wanted to make sure you saw:>>32204730
>>32205662We have max Healing factor,next on the buy list for me are Wings 3, Electric Hands 2 and Dragon Breath 2.
>>32205775Very low if you don't eat another human. I don't know the chances for eating lean human meat but I read somewhere when I was researching cannibalism that if you eat an area like the brain, fingers, toes, genitals, the chances increases variably. For brains its 90% chance you'll get Prions.
>>32205729Fuck druid. I wanted photo for the sake of photo. Not voting for an option because it might one day lead to people voting for a different option is fucking stupid.>>32205772I didn't say we did. I said those powers are capped at 3. Meaning we can't go higher than that.
>>32205775Humans taste like pork anyways, look up that german that ate a dude he talks about it. It's why humans are sometimes called "long pig" in some areas.
>>32205870We have the same body fat composition as pigs so its not surprising.
>>32205595it will also help deal with the malnutrition. making JJ stronger, we would no longer have to strain our back to do 3 tons.>>32205671>I just don't think it's worthy of a point. But I just ran out of things I really want to vote for. i may vote for sinking one point into it if nothing else looks good, no more than that though.>you don't like itthat's fair enough, you are entitled to your opinion> But I just ran out of things I really want to vote for.> i may vote for sinking one point into it if nothing else looks good>But I just ran out of things I really want to vote for.>sinking one point into it if nothing else looks goodI don't get you anon>>32205729I hate tomatoes, but I will gladly gorge on some if it means I won't starve to death.not eating food is bad for your health.and being in tune with animals and plants doesn't mean JJ would be a hippie. Animals eating other animals is part of nature and fruits were designed to be eaten, its how many plants spread their seeds.we ain't gonna be their pal, we'd be their master>>32205684we did, it can go no further. on its own anyway.
>>32205729That is cripplingly stupid. It's just a way of ensuring we always have food. Hell, with the animal communication bit, we can hunt/restock animals easily. Just talk a bunch of pigeons into chilling around us, then snag a few to add to lunch. The plant part of Druid is just to have back up food plus possibly growing food that can literally heal people.
>>32205889We also share 90% of our DNA with pigs.
>>32205896>Eating a pigeon anywhere>Especially in new yorkAnon, are you sure you want to do that?
>>32205729What the hell is wrong with not eating meat and veggies when you don't have to eat anymore?
>>32205804>Change the prerequisiteThat would actually be awesome. I don't like animal affinity. And healing vital affecting plants would make sense as an upgrade. (Photosynthesis would still be needed)But I don't know if Crusty would go for it.
>>32205952What, we have healing factor.
I think I'll go for more armor next vote.
>>32205956JJ doesn't even have to stop eating, he just wouldn't have to>>32205981I don't even think Crusty is still here.I'd rather he drop the talking to plants extrapolative that is required for green finger anyways
>>32205981Maybe we should start a petition for the change?
>>32206015>don't have to eat anymoreYes, that's what I said. Why are you repeating it back to me?
>>32205997Healing factor can only do so much, take for instance Prions attacking the tissues in our brain. It can heal the damage but not memory loss and it certainly won't stop them.
>>32206015What if he flipped I, so you needed green finger to talk to plants?
>>32206044>petitionI like you. You're silly.
>>32206053That was healing factor bit about eating pigeons.
>>32205804>>32205981Hmmm. I'll think about it.
>>32206095Thanks for the bone Crusty.Thanks for running, see you next time.
>>32206094Yeah I know but if we get Prions we are fucked. It's like some of you clearly don't understand the dangers of cannibalism. It's like you want our memories and motor skills to get completely fucked.
>>32206095Sweet, thanks :)
>>32205997They eat ANYTHING. It would be beyond disgusting.>>32206027Grown away from cities and the wild, they'd probably be fine, but feral ones? Nah.>>32206095Thanks for running, Crusty. And thanks for considering.
>>32205541Photo is a waste this late in the game.We're better off just building on what we already have.
>>32206055then we wouldn't buy that one.my aspirations don't go any further than necessary to get green fingerphoto 2animal aff 2floral affgreen fingerthe costs change, then my goals change>>32206095happy birthday to me we all want the same thing (happy, stronk, and safe JJ, we just don't agree on how to do it) to show no hard feelings to anybody over powersperg, here's some a random assortment of silver age flash comics (started uploading them since the show's announcement)https://www.mediafire.com/folder/9r293odkmqi3a/Flash_v1
>>32206156I have eaten city birds before. They are ok (small as fuck tho). You gotta cook them tho.
>>32206129Eating pigeons has absolutely nothing to do with that shit though. It isn't eating human.
>>32205837>but I read somewhere when I was researching cannibalism that if you eat an area like the brain, fingers, toes, genitals, the chances increases variably. For brains its 90% chance you'll get Prions.Are you sure this isn't for cannibalistic SOCIETIES?Where the brains you're cannibalizing are themselves the brains of cannibals, creating a food chain loop allowing prions to propagate?
>>32206174The game isn't ending yet, though. It's the start of part 2, and it took ~60 threads to get through part 1.
>>32206156We've been homeless for quite some time. Pretty sure we've had to eat disguistin' shit before
>>32206129>dangers of cannibalismCrusty JUST said that the mundane problems, aka the ones you know about, are mitigated by healing factor 3, no?The only dangers are the non-mundane ones we have no idea about yet. Like becoming more of a dragon or something.Man how many people has Broseph eaten by now?
>>32206174you know part 2 (the part we're in right now) has more x points than the first part right?
>>32206183>happy birthday to meFuck your birthday and fuck green finger.
>>32206174Photo is +1 to all other. Including strenght,subdermal, agility,tasers,and it gives us flight without getting tired.We could run for miles and not get tired, if maxed.Better investment than getting all of the ones mentioned above.
>>32206250buy me a drink first faggot
>>32206242>>32206223Then we can use them after we max out the useful powers we already have.
>>32206272It's only gay if we enjoy it.And I will.
>>32206264Just picture: 6 senses and Invis. You can't because it's so invisible.
>>32206211I'm sure anon. For cannabalistic societies the chances increases even further. Look up cannabalism in Syria if you don't believe me. Do some fucking research because I've already done mine. If you eat people and continue to do so you will eventually get Prions. This is why we don't eat people because you don't wanna get Prions. If you don't believe go eat some brains and tell me how it turns out for you.>>32206210It doesn't matter Crusty already confirmed we ate from two different humans which means we are already at risk for Prions.
>>32206183I'd rather not pick up animal affinity. I don't want JJ dealing with the stress of hearing his food talk and beg him not to slaughter and cook it.
>>32206264sorry can't let it happen because of the druids, if we give an inch they will take a mile from us.plus I want JJ to feel Hunger (both conventional and otherwise), makes him more of a character.
>>32206279photo is useful.see>>32206264hell, every power and extrapolative has their uses. our subjective opinions more agility or shadowfield won't stop us from eating people, which is a big concern for me.>>32206327animals aren't aware of the concept of death.>>32206332again, spite is a terrible reason to do anything.
>>32206264With decent photo, we are undefinable, as we can keep up invisibility, and move/fly around all day without getting tired.>>32206332Seriously dude? We will get aids from eating people. We still need to eat without investing like 6 points. It just reduces our need to eat (and eat face).
>>32206363>animals aren't aware of the concept of death.Elephants...And I think animals are aware of death.
>>32206332Yep.But if Crusty does that green blood change, bet money there's a druid avalanche.
>>32206320Then keep your prions to the prion-cannibalism comment train. I'm talking about the merits of eating New York's wildlife with the example of flying rats.
>>32206363>animals aren't aware of the concept of death.Sure anon. Sure.
>>32206210I meant about how it would taste to someone with Senses 5, man. We could detect most-everything with Senses 4.>>32206193Obviously, JJ's not really a fan of raw meat (although his unstable spasm form seems wild enough not to care). I just meant we'd probably taste all the horrible things the birds had eaten, and thus it wouldn't be the best idea, but I can see what you really mean and it could work with set-up.>>32206235Doesn't mean we want to, though.>>32206363If we just knock them out/kill them quickly, it'll be fine.
>>32206388Well we should try to cook a pigeon next tread.I will support it, if I am there.
>>32206379Ok, let's recap. Photo requires sunlight to work. If you are invisible, you will not have photons to start up photosynthetic reactions.
>>32206327So eat birds. JJ will be happy to shit them up.
>>32206363They are aware of fear and pain, things that are instinctual. Animal affinity just makes me go 'egh' at the possibilities despite how cool it may seem to be able to talk to animals.
>>32206380>elephantsso we won't treat the zoo like a delithey can't all be aware of death>>32206387could totally see that happeningit'd lower the base cost to 7 and free up a Utility power slotit would make me look over Genetic Mimicry or Electromagnetic cloud thing again
I personally wouldn't want to kill and eat anything I just had a 5 minute conversation with, and i doubt JJ would to that's why i'm so against animal/plant affinity and druid in general.
>>32206442Anon, what are you posting from?
>>32206444Animal affinity is kinda bad (for RP reasons), and we already have ally who has it. Not worth.
>>32206445>they can't all be aware of deathWell no, because "all" would include animals that can barely be said to have brains.But it really isn't that hard a concept to grasp.
>>32206442reminds me of high school.>>32206444they have to be taught existential crisishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJkWS4t4l0k
>>32206440Yeah, and we should also be blind.Fuck. I'm not even annoyed at you but that prion guy is making me annoyed at the hyper logical stuff.For all Nolanites: This is a comic book universe.
pretty sure Victoria was on top during all their sexual encounters.JJ has too many crippling social problems to take the lead.
>>32206561Honestly? Thing gets better phone reception out of any other phone I've had. Downside of living in the middle of nowhere. Only apple product I plan on owning once though.
>>32206129Wait I got this.Lets start up a cult of Nurgle, or Devourer.Fell idols worked four us once before, right?
>>32206616That's what I said.No I'm crack shaking for a macbook pro.
>>32206636the frost idol is our one true demon god!forsake the cannibal idolaters!
>>32206695Bah, we have channeled the eyes of God. Your frozen false idol is nothing compared to The Sight.
