PREVIOUS EPISODES: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost+BustersLAST EPISODE: You and Akira got drunk, went inside a house, and walked in on a mother and her son in the bath.- - -You and Akira walk up the stairs to the upper floor. You're both mostly clear headed by this point, but still experiencing effects of intoxication.You have your goggles on and are watching the whole scene. It's strange, the moaning faces and forms of souls trapped in the walls seem to all be...drifting towards the front door. Sliding along the walls and celling."Why you think they're doing that?" Akira asks in a whisper.You shrug. "Maybe it has to do with Sato and Star's efforts outside.""Well, as long as they're busy with them, and not us." Akira says. "And can I ask you something? Who WAS that red-haired woman? You looked like you recognized her. I know it wasn't the shade of Oiwa that visited us."You frown. "She was there after the Gameshow adventure I had with Sato and Star. She picked up the middle-eastern guy in a car.""The one that Dr. Spengler is unable to talk about?" He asks."Yeah." You say. You two have reached the top of the stairs, you see three doors. One leading to the master bedroom, another to the son's room, and a final one to the upstairs study."So, which one are we going for?" Akira asks. "And are we going in polite or like ghostbusters?"> Kick in/ Open> Bedroom> Kid's room> Study
>>32445395I blast the ghost with my proton cannon.
>>32445395Kick in to the Study.
Oh darned, I can't believe I almsot missed this thread.Study
>>32445395>> Kick in/ Open> Study
>>32445395> Kick in to the StudyOh, my god. I didn't even know we had a Japanese Ghostbusters game going on. I need to check here more often if we got to Episode 19 before I noticed.
>>32446681Shit's great too. One of the best quests on /tg/.
>>32446711Glad to join in, then. This is literally the first day I even HEARD of Ghostbusters: Japan Quest, but fuck it, I'm jumping in with both feet.
>>32446681You kick in the door to the study.She's standing there, dressed in a filthy cheap flowered dress and a beige skirt covered with grime, and no shoes. Slime drips from the messy hair covering her face and one hateful eye gazes at you.An empty noose hands from the rafters above you.She opens her mouth and lets out that familiar croaking noise, and raises an arm to point at you.> Roll 1d10 for initiative.
Rolled 8>>32446836Ghost Roll Initiative!
Rolled 2, 2 = 4>>32446836Rolls for Daisuke and Kayako's Grudge.
>>32446893Does... Does that count as a ghost roll for both of them?
>>32446819(For the new player: Welcome. Three die rolls are needed to confirm a roll, I take the highest, but rolling a 1 is considered to just be a confirmed failure. But a 4 is a Ghost Roll and that means BAD stuff happens. It's 4 because this is Japan and 4's are unluckier than 1's)
>>32446883>>32446889Need one more to confirm
Rolled 1>>32447075>>32447093it's d10
>>32447093>32446889A 1d10 please.
Rolled 3>>32447075Fuck me, wrong dice here >>32447093.
>>32446889Okay, you're first to act.Kayako Grudge's just standing there, croaking at you, the walls of slime and souls are bubbling and screaming at you.> Proton Beam.> Slime her.> Stasis.> Meson Collider> Other
>>32447158> Slime her.
>>32447158Proton beam. Slime wont do much right now, stasis is not good with room dripping with black slime. Proton has to punch through to the core.
>>32447241She not even be the core.If we wanted piercing power we'd have to try the Boson Darts.>>32447158Open up with a Boson Dart
>>32447158>> Meson ColliderSee if we can tag her, then pierce with the little dudes.
>>32447328Those are really specialized to disintegrate physical targets, but are still effective admittedly.
>>32447198>>32447241>>32447272>>32447328Lovely, we have a four way split.
>>32447272I'm willing to switch to the Boson Darts
>>32447418I suppose I'll back Darts too.
>>32447418In the game, you can fire the Boson Dart down the Proton Stream, you can almost sorta lead the boson using the stream. If possible I'd like to open up with both.
>>32447418http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y_l3nOMYzoAround 7:40, you can see the white bulge (the boson dart) flowing through the proton stream, and likewise when the stream moves the boson is directed with it.
Boson dart it is.Not wanting to waste time, you immediately go for the big guns and launch a boson dart at the ghost.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 9>>32447532Ghost Dart Go!
Uh, shit. How do I roll?
Rolled 3>>32447532>>32447563Put dice+YdXY is the number of DiceX is how many sides that dice hasSo dice+1d20 would roll 1 dice with 20 sides
dice+1d20>>32447579Trying it out
>>32447579>Put dice+YdX*in the email field
>>32447597see>>32447600sorry about that
Rolled 15>>32447600Trying it again.
Rolled 20>>32447568You fire the bast at Kayako, but she just simply backhands it to the side where it slams into the slimy walls of the house.It does a decent bit of damage to the wall...until the slime covers it back up, but Kayako's palm isn't even slightly burnt, just a few wisps of smoke rising from it."That isn't good. But I guess we never expected it to be easy." Akira says as he lets loose with a Proton Stream.
>>32447634Oh my god, I just got the best roll so far.
>>32447654>Nat 20Man, Akira is showing us up.
>>32447664He's Akira man, he's the one with the most focused mindset of kicking a ghosts ass.
Rolled 9>>32447654Bullseye! Akira hits the ghost right in the eye. She snaps her head back for a moment and her croaking stops in a cough.But she hasn't moved an inch, and when she turns her gaze back at you, you see smoke rising from her rapidly healing eye.You notice that the walls of the room are acting more...violent, charring and thrashing. After Akira's shot, you even see some bare patches of actual wall.Kayako motions with her hand and, with a hideous slurping sound, a figure steps out from the wall.It's her son, but not the same as the one Kayako The Mother was protecting. This one has blue skin, his fingernails are long and look almost like claws. He opens his mouth too wide for normal humans and lets out a cat's yowl.The Child attacks Akira with a lunging swipe.
>>32447745Akira jumps out of the way.Your turn.
>>32447770One problem at a time, Statis Stream the boy
>>32447781>>32447826You turn to the kid and let loose with a Stasis Stream.> 1d20
>>32447745I believe that we should proton stream on Kayako
Rolled 15>>32447858Ghost roll? Ghost roll>>32447862Both of us alone aren't screatching her. We need to fend off the boy and then do a combined attack at the same time.
Rolled 17>>32447858See stasis stop smelly slime
Rolled 15>>32447882You stream slams into the boy and he freezes solid. The kid must be nearly all Volatile PKE and slime, no other physical or 'Grounded' PKE at all. Stasis crystals jut out of its entire body.Akira grins and warms up his Boson Dart.
>>32447949Jesus Christ, the first three rolls count, right?
>>32448002Akira doin' work
Rolled 16>>32448002WHAM. The thing slams into the kid and knocks the monster off its feet.Kayako croaking changes into an angry hiss.A new figure steps out from the wall. A tall male figure, wearing dirty clothing, Stubbly beard on his face, and red stains on his hands and around his neck. He has no other facial features though.Kayako's husband has arrived and he moves to grab you.Her son is still in Stasis.
>>32448006Well, there is still the cat.
>>32448056Wait. . .this isn't how the story goes.
>>32448056He has a hand around your throat and is starting to squeeze, along with the casting burning of black slime.You can still take actions through.The proton stream has cooled down from the Boson dart.> The usual attacks> Break free.> Other
>>32448087"Momma said knock you out" Boson to the face!
Rolled 18>>32448087> Break free
>>32448087Break free, and square off. Target the husband.
>>32448087Dart to the nuts
>>32448087>Break FreeAlso yell."I AM NOT YOUR DAUGHTER. THAT'S HER OVER THERE, HUNG. IT'S OVER. YOU KNOW WHAT NEED TO DO"Let's try to get him to "stick to the program"
>>32448165>I AM NOT YOUR DAUGHTERYou mean wife.This is Kayako's husband.
>>32448201Oh right. Even better.
>>32448165Stick to the program!
>>32448165>>32448201Yeah, remember to change it to "NOT YOUR WIFE"
>>32448165You try to pull free from the man's grip."I'm not your wife! That's her over there! You know what has to happen!" You shout.> Roll 2d20
Rolled 13, 16 = 29>>32448292pls Dice Gods. pls.

Rolled 13, 8 = 21>>32448292rolling
Rolled 20, 3 = 23>>32448292Rolls>>32448321Kudos to you, anon.
>>32448321Most honorobu success
>>32448362Yeah, and to think this is still my first time participating in this particular quest.
Rolled 9>>32448321You easily break free by ripping the husband's arm off the body. When you do it spurts out black slime and the thing...deflates. It does a wicked witch of the west act and melts into the ground with a steaming hiss.You also see a little of Kayako's slimy hair fall out.Akira hoses down the brat with slime.
Rolled 8>>32448457Kayako is instantly there in front of her son, taking the hit for him. The slime having no effect on her body at all.There's another slurching noise as a new individual comes out from the wall.He's wearing a black, slime covered jump suit, his flesh is fish belly pale, and his eyes are pure black. He's also wearing a black cowboy hat.It's Akira."You fucking LOSER!" The double snarls. "You go around being all nice-nice to ghosts. Don't you remember what they DID to us? What HAPPENED TO US IN THE DARK!?"He raises his fleshy-looking proton pack and blasts black slime at Akira.
>>32448457So we have to beat her bald? Some radiation therapy can help that along.
Rolled 9>>32448540Akira jumps out of the way."This is new." He says.There's Kayako. There's her Son, who is now free of the Stasis. There's Akira's Grudge.Your turn.
>>32448540>>32448567Holy shit.A JAPANESE PEOPLE BUSTERAnd all alone too, they forgot the buddy system!
>PeopleBusters Japan AkiraC-can we try and capture this one? He could lead us to the others, maybe even our own double
>>32448567Proton stream Akira Grudge"Well-uh pilgrim, looks like there gonna be one Sheriff Akira in these here parts, and its not gonna be you."
>>32448567Stasis Akira's Grudge.I can't wait for Daisuke's to come out.
>>32448540>"You fucking LOSER!" The double snarls. "You go around being all nice-nice to ghosts. Don't you remember what they DID to us? What HAPPENED TO US IN THE DARK!?"Idiot! We got over that! Fuck, we've even been trying to mediate our actions. Akira is helping us free the soul of the real Kayako, and we get to fucking blow away the shit that's actually stealing people away!That's Ghostbusters team work, right there!" And hold up a fist for the real Akira to bump while we blast Fake-Akira.
>>32448582>>32448627It's probably a slime constructthat doesn't rule out the possibility it is PBJ Akira sent here on a mission, or that we'll not encounter them at some time.
>>32448582>>32448627>PeopleBusterIt's really not. It's a manifestation created by Kayako using Akira's memories.
>>32448676>We got over thatThat's Akira's own personal thing, and he hasn't gotten over it yet.
>>32448693Aw, alright.If we don't survive this PB Daisuke and Sato better sue Kayako for Copyright Infringement
>>32448676>>32448632>>32448627You shoot a proton stream at Akira's Grudge.> Roll 1d20> have to step away for a while will be back by 7:15ish
Rolled 5>>32448745He's pure slime, though. I wonder how well this will work.
Rolled 17>>32448745Ghost Beam!
Rolled 20>>32448745Roll>>32448760Well, not pure slime he's also highly charged PKE so the stream should still be effective.
>>32448796>>32448321>>32447882>>32447654I wish to jinx this by pointing out how great these are.
>>32448796>Nat 20Well, it's effective now.
>>32448687>>32448693I realize it's probably just slime, but it'd be damned hilarious if it was the real thing.>PBJ members are the complete opposite of us, Akira is their most incompetent member>Goes here on a solo mission to explore a ghost house where the neighbors kept complaining real world keeps streaming in>He spots us and tries to use reverse psychology on our Akira to get him to "play with the story">Get's captured on the first encounter like Ghost Daisuke said he would>PB Daisuke laughs and continues his harem of all the ghost girls and one trapped human schoolgirl who can't return to the material world yet
>>32449132>>>PBJ members are the complete opposite of usGhost Sana is worst ghost girl
Rolled 17>>32448796You aim, fire, and blow Daiskue's Grudge's head clean off. You hear another hiss from Kayako as more slime drips off of her and is not replenished."For the record, I'd like to think I can be a tad more diplomatic these days." Akira says."Yeah, you give them a chance to surrender and only receive a LIGHT beating." You say with a smile.Akira flips you off as he tries to slime Kayako's son.
Rolled 6, 15 = 21>>32449636His shot is dead on and the brat dissolves in a hissing sizzling mass.Kayako staggers back hands clutching at her head."IT'S NOT FAIR!" You hear your own voice say from behind you.Yep, now it's your turn. You see your own Grudge step out from the wall."I did the right thing and now I have to live in a shit-hole in a shitty neighborhood, doing shit like this! I was supposed to be relaxing in University! I DID the RIGHT thing and now I have to SUFFER. IT'S NOT FAIR!""I should have left you drunk at the train station." Another voice hisses.It's Sato's Grudge. His messy hair now a slimy mass covering his face, the little scars he obtained in childhood now weeping sores."This was supposed to be MY time to FINALLY be the hero! For everyone to like ME, and so I could STOP being the clown and saying that STUPID crap just so people could LIKE me...but no...no I HAD to have a bleeding heart and help you, and now YOU'RE the big leader, and I'm just the second banana loser...and YOU'RE the asshole all the girls want...I HATE you."Not-You and Not-Sato both shoot slime streams at you.
>>32449749Not fair? What the fuck is this shit about? Japanese societal expectations is that you do the right thing, things will not be fair, and because you're a good person you're supposed to suck it up and take it. Whining about things not being fair after doing the right thing is considered to be one of the worst things a person can do.
>>32449867Well, yeah, it's the literal expression of our repressed and unwanted/unspoken complaints. It's meant to be the opposite of what we should be.
>>32449867Just because they're not voicing it doesn't mean they're not thinking it.
>>32449749>a shitty neighborhood, doing shit like this! I was supposed to be relaxing in University! I DID the RIGHT thing and now I have to SUFFER. IT'S NOT FAIR!"Shouganai
Rolled 42>>32449867Just because they do the right thing doesn't mean that a dark part If themselves doesn't feel otherwise.
>>32450000Whoops, sorry about the roll, my phone cut off that area & I didn't notice.
>>32449749You manage to dodge your 'own' spray, but Sato's gets you, and it stings and burns a lot.> Your turn
>>32450150Stasis the Slime-Sato.We know that they can be stasised pretty easily.
>>32450220I agree. Stasis him
>>32450150"Hey Akira, if you have any heated words to say to "me" then get it off your chest. I've got 'Sato'.">>32450220>>32450242This
>>32449749>For everyone to like ME, and so I could STOP being the clown and saying that STUPID crap just so people could LIKE meI always thought it was because he was related to another Kenner toylined Sato. When I can't remember his given name, I always call him Bruce.
>>32450220>>32450242You shoot a stasis stream at Sato's Grudge.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 13>>32450491"As the Ancients Say, Fuck You"
Rolled 9>>32450521You nail Grudge Sato with the Stasis beam, he freezes dead in his tracks, just as the boy did.Daisuke shoots a proton beam at 'you.'
Rolled 17, 20, 14 = 51>>32450775This time he misses."I AM NOT A WHORE!" Grudge Star yells as she steps out into the room. "And I am NOT a junkie! I hate hate HATE the fact that you all look at me like I am one! Like none of YOU have a past? Fuck you! Fuck you all! Sato's a delusional twit, Akira's a trauma case, Daisuke's a social leper. So STOP looking at me like THAT! You all wouldn't BE here if it weren't for me!"Sato tries to hose you with Slime. 'You' and Star go for Akira.
Rolled 13, 5, 5 = 23>>32450831OW.Being triple teamed is NOT fun, and worst of all, Aikra's pack starts to spark and malfunction from the slime getting into the works. He'll need a turn to fix it.Your go.
>>32450831>>32450853Wait, how can Akira be triple-teamed if Slime-Sato has been stasised, Slime-Akira is vaporized, and Slime-Daisuke missed on his attack against us?
Rolled 16>>32450880Slime star and slime sato. Though it should only be a double team on akira
>>32450853Move in to defend Akira while he repairs.Switch to the Meson Collider and just start shooting rapid fire at anything and everything, lay down suppression fire and try to buy time.
>>32450926Does being stasised still allow a ghost to attack?Because I thought, from the description given when we stasised Kayako's Son, that a stasised Slime-Sato wouldn't be able to move. Even if he could move a finger to activate the trigger, he shouldn't be able to move his arms to aim the slime-thrower.
>>32450930You are right, my bad, I apologize. Sato's double doesn't attack. Sato just gets double teamed.You jump over to Sato to cover him as he fixes his pack, and you turn on the Meson Collider and start using the Overload Pulse and just spray it over the room as cover fire.> Roll 4d20
Rolled 5, 4, 17, 5 = 31>>32451190Oh shit, we're in for it now!
Rolled 8, 14, 20, 8 = 50>>32451190
Rolled 7, 17, 3, 10 = 37>>32451190
Rolled 19, 18 = 37>>32451226>>32451243Okay, going with one crit, one hit, one Ghost roll, and one miss.Okay, good news and bad news.The good news is that your spray was pretty effective. One blast hits Sato, and another hits 'yourself' right between the eyes, causing 'you' to burst into slime and collapse.The bad news is that now YOU'RE the one with a non-functioning pack. It's over-heated.Thankfully Sato is back up and operational and he fires a boson dart into the remaining two Ghostbuster Grudges, that are now grouped together, thanks to you.
>>32451382This one fires, the other reloads thing seems to be working fairly well. Go Teamwork!
>>32451382Fuck yeah, AKIRA kicking ass.
>>32451382We should consider some kind of coolant purge add-on for our packs, to help with overheating.
>>32451416We actually do have it already, assuming our packs are the latest and most advanced from the Ghostbusters Video Game (these were worked by Spengler himself).Thermonuclear radiation is a bitch.
Rolled 13, 20, 10 = 43>>32451382BAM! A direct hit on both of them."Yes!" Akira says with a smile.There's a familiar slurching noise."Oh, who is it now?" Akira asks."Smile for the camera, perk your breasts up, come suck my cock." Sana says. "I work and I work and I work! And what does it get me? NOTHING! I DESERVE to be a great actress, and what am I? A nothing extra, all because I won't WHORE myself out! I see the rest of them, smiling and pretty, and they insult me when they think I can't hear. I'm the helper of those lunatics. I live in a slum. I don't deserve to be here...SCREW all of you!"Then...something weird happens...Sana's Grudge...changes. Kind of.Her stance shifts, and though you can't see much of her face, due to it being covered in slime, but you get a sense that it's shifted slightly."What is going...oh...I see...it's early." She giggles. "I wasn't sure this one would get the part...but I'm not in her...and very much early on my cue...I see."Kayako looks at Sana's Grudge."Yes, yes. I understand." She reaches into her pocket and pulls out a hypodermic needle filled with black slime. "Dress rehearsal then."She lunges at you, while Sato and Star try to spray Akira with Slime again.
Rolled 11, 3, 2, 20 = 36>>32451532You manage to just barely get out of the way of Sana's lunge.Sato dodges Star but gets a full blast to the back by Sato and now his pack is overheating again."Damn it, damn it, damn it!" Sato says as he bangs on his pack. "This is really getting old." He swears.Your pack is cooling down and Akira is still trying to get his pack working again.There's yet another squelching noise."I don't want to be dead." Yurei says. "I don't want to be dead. I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD! I WANT TO FEEL, TO EAT, TO SING, TO KISS, TO TOUCH! I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD!" She snarls, bearing her fleshless hands, drippling with black slime."This room is getting REALLY crowded." Sato says.Sana and Yurei go for you.Sato and Star go for Akira.
>>32451532It is quite the shame we didn't bring the full team here to fight their doubles.
>>32451651You gotten good at maneuvering around the room so that you won't be caught by the others.Sato however isn't so lucky. He gets a full face full of black slime, and he's really not looking too good. Not horrific, but getting there VERY soon.Thankfully, your pack is now up and running again.> Your turn.
>>32451688Rapid-Fire Boson Darts.Give Akira a chance to recover.
>>32451688We should probably give Akira a good blast of Posi-slime to neutralize the black stuff or at least lessen the effect.I really wish we had Yurei's Chyme in our pocket to play some nice music to help a bit.>>32451723Boson Darts are not rapid fire, they are explosive shots like launching a grenade.Meson Collider is rapid fire, rat-a-tat-tat machine gun and best for solid targets like Vampires and Werewolves and Zombies, but still work on ghosts too.
>>32451651>"I don't want to be dead. I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD! I WANT TO FEEL, TO EAT, TO SING, TO KISS, TO TOUCH! I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD!"This is actually revealing a lot about Yurei and we should note this
>>32451688Give Akira a quick dose of posislime he ain't looking too good.Blast Yurei with the Stasis Stream first, she'll be harder to take down than Sana and this Sana is . . .interesting, we need to learn more about this clone it's different.
>>32451918Let's do that then.
>>32451918This, then headshots for everyone. 'Akira' got obliterated in one go, and the numbers have grown since the deviation.
Rolled 1>>32451918Okay, first, you spray Akira with a quick zap of Posi-slime
>>32452117Welp, that sucks.
>>32452117And Akira is dead, sorry Akira.
Rolled 3>>32452117He looks slightly better, the sizzling has gone down at least, but he looks none too happy about the situation.You aim at Yurei and blast her with the Stasis Stream.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 2>>32452140This is not going smoothly, we need help!
>>32452140(The posi-slime was a 1d4 for healing, a 4 means no effect.)
Rolled 6>>32452140Man, we need a quick turn around here. Why ain't we blasting Kayako?
Rolled 18>>32452140Simon says FREEZE
Rolled 19>>32452140"You have a lovely voice Yurei, I wish the real you would speak it more often. It makes you feel more alive">keyword "Alive">>32452163We are weakening her, she's splitting her power to make these forms. Akira hit her int he fact with a nat20 Boson Dart, the biggest thing we could hit her with, and she barely nudged her head.
>>32452163>Why ain't we blasting KayakoShe seems to be limited by the narrative, like many Japanese ghosts.She can't attack us directly until we defeat her minions; conversely, her defenses are up until we defeat her minions.And apparently there's supposed to be a specific order, because Slime-Sana apparently came out too soon.
>>32452186Oh yeah, throw in that dialogue maybe it'll help a bit. It worked for that dad.
Rolled 14, 20, 5 = 39>>32452176You hit Yurei and she again goes shock still.Seeing you as the biggest threat, all three Grudges go for you. Sato and Star blasting slime, Sana trying to hit you with her needle."An Ur Exorcist? Impossible...and yet, here two are. Well...not for much longer." 'Sana' says, chuckling.
Rolled 14, 10 = 24>>32452248You dodge Sana's lunge, but in doing so, you get nailed by the other two, and your damn pack it overheating again!"I Have had, ENOUGH!" Akira says, shooting a Boson Dart at Sato and Star.
>>32452248So Sana, what are you doing in a role like this? Me and you were going to go try out for that one you seemed excited for, hell we were planning on all showing up to cheer you on."
>>32452272"You're not really Sana's Grudge, are you? What, Kayako couldn't be bothered to actually use a portion of her power and you're an extra that needed the quick cash?"
Rolled 13, 1 = 14>>32452272The blast isn't perfect, but it's good enough. Sato explodes into harmless grey slime, and the blast was enough that it seems that Yurei got a little too, as immobile as she was.There's no further Grudges emerging from the walls, but you do notice that Kayako's croaking is getting louder, looking at her you see the black slime pooling around her and her hair starting to thrash, and her hands start to clench and unclench. Her hair is moving on its own, slowly to start, but she's gaining speed.Star tries to cover Akira with slime.Yurei breaks free of her stasis.Sana lunges at you with her needle.
Rolled 3>>32452384Akira just barely manages to get out of the way.Sana, actually stumbles over Yurei and falls to the ground.Your turn is spent reactivating your pack.Akira sprays slime at Star.
>>32452422You know, with all the failing that's going on, I can only imagine this fight being like 6 people in a disproportionately tiny room, and they're all stumbling about and tripping everywhere and rolling around.
>>32452384>>32452422We might want to Capture this Sana alive (well, unlief), especially since she's evidently a separate entity and not just slime.We could draw information out of her, and now that she's stumbled she's vulnerable.
Rolled 2>>32452422Kayako again appears right in front of Star and blocks it, showing no effect on her.Star tries to spray Akira again.Yurei and Sana are trying to get up from the floor.Kayako's croaking is getting loud enough that it's distracting. Her hair is thrashing, and her limbs have popped into place, looking VERY hostile and ready to mess you up. She'll be attacking herself soon.
>>32452467Akira dodges out of the way, easily.> Your turn
>>32452489Switch to Proton Stream. Throw Yurei out of the way, and hold down Sana with the stream and pull out the trap.We need to capture this one.
>>32452525Ill second trying to bag and tag Not-Sana.
Rolled 2Rolling for evasive maneuvers....
>>32452489More posislime for Akira. Then follow.>>32452525>>32452543
>>32452525>>32452543I suggest taking out Not-yurei or Not-Sana first. 6 vs 2 is not good. even the odds first
>>32452525(Keep in mind, that this is not Yurei. This is just Yurei's Grudge. It's her hate and self-loathing made into a thing of Hostile PKE and Black Slime.)You blast Sana with a proton stream.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 4>>32452678Yeah, we realize that. But still, since they are manifestations of our repressed thoughts it's interesting to learn that Yurei's is a desire not to die and stay alive.This may tie in two why she hasn't passed on yet.Roll
Rolled 15>>32452678>>32452703>>32452709No. Fuck that.>>32452714SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
>>32452703>>32452709>>32452714>1,1,4You three are henceforth forbidden from rolling tonight.
>>32452703>>32452709>>32452714Wow. that's just. . .
>>32452714Kayako does her 'appear right in front of people' trick and blocks the proton blast with her palm.Then she smiles and you see...well...emission of Red PKE start to form around her hands. Crackling and hissing.Akira doesn't notice it and launches a Boson Dart at Star and Yurei.
Well damn, luck deserted us right at the last moment. I'm going to work so I'm trusting you guys to nail this ghost to the wall.
>>32452775Yell out to Akira about the Red PKE.
>>32452798The blast hits Star dead on and she explodes into grey slime, and Yurei gets caught in the blast as well.Kayako's actually looking pretty weak, slime is dripping off her, her hair has mostly fallen out and she looks like crap.But she's still smiling.Sana takes a few steps back and out of the way. "You're about to get a taste of your own medicine!" She says.Kayako walks up to Yurei and puts a hand on her shoulder. Yurei instantly collapses into a pile of grey slime, and the red PKE around Kayako's hands glows brighter.She turns to the pair of you and does her best imitation of the Emperor from Star Wars. A...for lack of a better word...anti-position beam leaps from her fingers and hits both you and Akira.(This is an auto-hit you both fry for 1 hit, and it can't be healed by posi-slime.)It hurts. A lot. Also you don't have eyebrows anymore.Thankfully, she runs out of energy before your insides fry.> Your turn.
>>32452913No more fooling about.We take down Kayako, now. Have Akira clean off that last vestages of black slime and we hit her with the Stasis, we must immobilize her and depower, then we can get to the core.
>>32452982That is to say, Akira uses Posi-Slime and we use Stasis field. Hold her steady and then we go for the core.
>>32452982Didn't she say (through interpretation) that'd she'd go willingly into the trap if we won? Maybe that's why she's still smiling. Take care of 'Sana' first.
>>32453067oh, right.Then again, she wasn't really supposed to intervene personally either. But yeah,
>>32453067Yes, but if we immobilize Kayako, we'll be able to go for Sana next without worrying about getting burnt to death
>>32453100Her energy's already depleted though. Well, just to be sure.
>>32453153You fire a stream of stasis at Kayako.> roll 1d20
Rolled 6>>32453153Lady Kayako, be kind.
>>32453225It seems to have an effect. Stasis crystals start to form around her and her movement is slowed.Akira opens up with the slime.
Rolled 7>>32453371It's at point blank range, so there's little chance that he can miss.However, something strange happens. Kayako gets the hit......but Sana is the one who winces in pain and black slime starts to bubble and hiss."No matter." She says, looking at her sizzling 'flesh.' "This was more of an accidental appearance anyway." She summons her needle to her hand again and returns to the fray.Kayako is focusing, it's slow going with the stasis crystals.Sana lunges at you with her needle again.
>>32451651When did Sato show up? Shouldn't he be outside?
>>32453412You dodge out of the way.> Your turn
>>32453421I'm thinking he's accidentally switching the name of Akira with Sato, unless Sato is somehow attacking himself at times.
>>32453426Kayako is slowed down and depowered, Now we need to get not Sana, she's clearly a big part of the picture.Hit her with the stream and throw the trap, do whatever we can to hold her steady and bag her.With all of Kayako's minions defeated, maybe she will end up going voluntarily like was said previously.
>>32453412>"This was more of an accidental appearance anyway."Outward appearance, or appearing unlive and in person? Something to knock the facade offa her if there is one. Try hitting 'Sana' with stasis directly.
>>32453491>"What is going...oh...I see...it's early.">"I wasn't sure this one would get the part...>but I'm not in her...and very much early on my cue...I see.">I'm not in herI don't know what this means, but when this is over we should take a closer look at Sana.>>32453468Stasis Beam on Sana
>>32453600You aim a Stasis beam at Sana.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 9>>32453631Stupid captcha. Maybe it's trying to tell me not to roll.
Rolled 16>>32453631May the kami smile on us.
Rolled 14>>32453636You nail her and she freezes like the rest.Akira blasts Kayako with slime.
Rolled 19>>32453792Akira gets up to point blank range and just hoses her down, but Kayako goes that same trick that she used before.Sana turns into a mass of sizzling inert grey slime and dissolves like the rest.She's oddly calm about the whole thing, unlike the others."See you later, Ur Exorcists." She says through her melting lips.Now it's just you, and her.She looks bad, tired, and nearly all of her hair has fallen out. The room itself looks less hostile as well. There's less slime on the walls and more actual wall, and the faces and thrashing forms have all but vanished.Even her croaking is lessened.Still it looks like she's still trying to put up a fight, you see little sparks of Red PKE starting to form around her hands again. She's charging up.> Your turn.
>>32453210Complete the stasis.
>>32453865She shoots Anti-Positrons, so do our streams.If we can wrap a capture stream around her like a lasso and let her fire the energy she releases might backfire on her and empower our stream.Capture Stream + Trap
>>32453877>>32453901>>32453910You shoot a stasis beam at Kayako.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 20>>32453865>>32453897Supporting this
>>32453930>>32453932Crap, well, can we use my roll? It is after your post.
Rolled 13>>32453932You hit her dead on with the Stasis Beam, and crystals start to form instantly. Like all other ghosts, she instinctually tries to break free...and in her thrashing to break free she bangs her arm against a non-slimed part of the wall...and it comes off. Right at the shoulder.She stares at it.Akira, with a vindictive look on his, slightly sizzling, face...steps forward to slime her.
>>32454040>and in her thrashing to break free she bangs her arm against a non-slimed part of the wall...and it comes off. Right at the shoulder.Souvenir anyone?I really wish we collected trophies and knicknacks of all the ghosts we've faced since thread 1.Rookie and the Original Ghost Busters filled the firehouse with all sorts of memorabilia and even active spectral trophies.
>>32454096Still don't have that DVD or the T-Shirt from the gameshow
>>32454040It works, and Kayako's Grudge falls to the ground a writhing and slimy mass that slowly dissolves into grey sludge, like all the rest.The room shifts, and the figures and faces in the wall fade away. You see little specks of white light flick through the air, and vanish.You look out the window, and see Sato and Star out in the yard. They're also covered in slime and slightly streaming. Sato holding the covered Stage Light/Heavy Dudty Proton Cannon, and Star with the Slime Power Washer wand...they look like they've been through a lot...and the yard looks like it's filled with fireflies for just a moment...then it's a vacant lot filled with grey and green slime.There's a sound of footsteps coming up the stairs. You and Akira spin around and look.Kayako, dressed in clean clothing, calmly enters the room. She's carrying one of those small flecks of light in her hands. She smiles as it flies up into the air, and vanishes.She looks at the two of you and nods."Umm..." Akira looks at you. "Can't you...follow him?" You ask. "We don't trap those who aren't..."She shakes her head, and then lifts up her shirt just slightly to show her stomach.You see, just underneath her skin is a mass of swirling, swarming, hideousness. The Foul Essences...they're still in her. No amount of slime, or protonic blasts can dispel something like that."Never leaves." Kayako croaks out in a very hoarse and croaky voice. "Will happen again."Kayako cannot be allowed to remain free. The foulness within her will seep out, and her own hatreds will resurface. It'll start all over again, or worse, start somewhere else. She'll ensnare the souls of others, and create a new Legion-entity again.Right now though, the darkness in her soul has been beaten into submission enough that Kayako's last few remaining shreds of kinds, compassion, and love have control.And they're asking you to seal her away. Forever.> Trap her.> Let Akira trap her.> Other
>>32454223We can ask the lady in red if we see her again.>>32454239Hug it out. Step back. Lay the trap out in the middle and open in. Let her step in. Wave good bye. ;_;
>>32454296Actually we may need something bigger for this, if I recall the Yomi-1 has the new and improved Super Muon Trap, now would be a good opportunity to test it out.
>>32454313So as long as there's a hug. And dialogue. Where's the dialogue people?
>>32454239Bring up the Yomi-1 and open up the Super Trap.>>32454357"Not forever Kayako. But long enough. We will free you and you will see your son, and may the Ghostbusters never cease hunting evil wherever it be until you do, I swear upon all the powers."
"Do we need the super slammer?" You ask."I dunno..." Akira says. "Judging by how it's smoking and YOMI-1 is just a little on fire I think the other two put it through its paces."Kayako shakes her head.You nod and set the trap on the ground, and then you step over and hug Kayako. She's so startled that she freezes in shock."This will not be forever Kayako. But long enough. We will free you, and you will see your son, and may the Ghostbusters never cease hunting evil wherever it be until you do, I swear upon all the powers."You step back.Tears of black slime drip down her face.You open the trap and the blinding light pours out. Kayako calmly steps into the light and is drawn inside. The trap snaps shut.At that same moment, all the black slime in the house turns into grey gunk, and even more sparks of light appear.The house also ages about 20 years in a few moments as time finally is allowed to take hold, now that the PKE is absent.Which means you and Sato are standing on the second floor in a rapidly decaying house that's half grey slime.There's a slight creaking and you two manage to take one step before the entire house crumbles around you.Thankfully, you land in the middle of a large puddle of slime and only slime falls upon your head."Hey guys." Sato says as he and Star walk up to help you and Akira out of the sludgy mess. "So...I take it we won?""Yeah. About 99%." You say."99%?" Star asks warily.You wave her off. "It's okay, I'll tell you about that last bit back at base. We're good.""Great." Sato says. "Cause I think we all have first degree burns and severe slime exposure. Also we probably have one very pissed off realtor."(cont)
>>32454867You look at the giant mound of slime and rouge rotten masonry, and the yard that's completely covered in slime and scorch marks."They can send the fine to P-COC." You say.You all stagger towards the not-on-fire YOMI-1.There's someone familiar leaning on the other side of the van, smoking a cigarette and looking like she needs one."Oh wow," She exhales with a smile on her face. "That. Was a fight." She shivers. "I mean, with you two out here facing the unending horde, and you two inside with that brawl in that small room with all those copies." She makes a sound of delight. "Oh, I missed this...and the Old Man will be pleased too. He's back in America being all cryptic to your fellows...I think he enjoys having 'his priests' back...but whatever." She puts out her cigarette with her foot and then sighs. "And now I need a good screwing..." She sizes all four of you up and then pouts. "But I promised the Idiot that I'd never take His People as my lover...unless you're offering?""Uhh...no thanks?" You say. You don't know why you just said that, but it was your lizard brain kicking in telling you that sleeping with this gorgeous, violent, red-haired, woman would be a VERY VERY bad idea.She shrugs. "Well, offer's always open. Oh, and you'll want your priestess friend to start looking into that trick Kayako's mother did with the Sake, if you want to continue helping Kayako. Ciao, Ghostbusters." She walks off down the alley.The four of you just stand there in silence, dripping slime."Someone want to explain what happened?" Sato asks."Later..." Akira says. "Right now, I think I need another drink."END EPISODE 19
>>32454896Til we meet again, Kayako. In less hostile situations.Thanks for the run!
>>32454896Awesome thread GhostMaster, thanks for running!
>>32454975I have a feeling it won't be long. We'll look into that Anti-PKE Sake.And even if we ourselves don't end up freeing Kayako, we have other Ghostbusters who can try. Brighter minds and better resources.The Ghostbusters have killed, destroyed, even purified Gods and Legion class entities before in exactly the same situation. Ivo Shandor absorbed all the foulness of New York for over 200 years, Gozer who knows how many Millenia, and if we can bring even those down, the Ghostbusters can and we will free Kayako whether it's today or a hundred years from now.
>>32454896NEXT EPISODETHURSDAY, JUNE 5, 3-5pm PST
On the brighter side, the Containment Unit is a VASTLY more pleasant place for her to be in than her house.No more haunting, no more hanging, no more reliving the horror. Just a pleasant peaceful place where she can rest as herself.
You know, I really love the Ghostbusters Japan Quest...but every time I get involved (as opposed to just reading it), I suck at it.If it isn't making the wrong /time-consuming decisions, it's making really sucky dice rolls.
>>32455345I find combat kinda devolves into complex beam choices based on the games and tons of rolling. The story is great, though, so I think I'm going to read through it in the next few weeks.
