Seeing it in person, you're a bit astonished, as it was easily double or triple the size of your old building."Certainly moving up in the world, aren't we?" Boss chuckles as he stand next to you."I guess we are, sir." You nod. "You've been doing a standup job so far, Producer. Keep up the good work!" Boss pats you on the shoulder before entering the building.Man, even with this, you've still go so much to do. Not only did you have to tour the facility, but you also had to arrange a joint training session between your idols and some idols from Zenith. On top of that, you also had to track down clues for that mysterious idol killer. In addition, Dr. Cohen was supposed to be visiting today, too.Augh, and you thought your job was supposed to be getting EASIER.>Tour the office.>Organize the joint training session.>Investigate the idol killer.>Meet Dr. Cohen>Other
>>32492144>Meet Dr. Cohen
>>32492144>>Tour the Office
>>32492144>>Meet Dr. CohenSo I'm saying that the Training session should be for heavy armour
>>32492144>Tour the office.
>>32492249No, it's joint training. It's to make sure we don't trip over each other in combat.
>>32492144stop by faylinns room and have her dig around on the web. as unreliable as the internet may be there is a chance she might find something. besides is she doing anything else?
HOUSING BLOCK: A section dedicated solely as living quarters for onsite staff. Currently consists of 12 units with options for expansion.it currently houses 12, with staff.Also with Rin now staying here, that makes 8, who are the other four staff members you think live here, because I can't remember
>>32492371Staff does not live in the office.
Rolled 78>>32492144>Meet Dr. Cohen
I think that our default position would be a 3-3-2 with Rin, Rochelle and Julie as one group, Niko, Cole and another combat idol as another group and leaving two combat idols as floaters to either reinforce existing groups, assist zenith with the killer hunt or as emergency response for any trouble.
>>32492403We can get more idols then?
>>32492144"Jenner, when did you say Cohen was supposed to be arriving?" You ask."Very soon. He'll be arriving on the landing pad in a few minutes." Jenner says, looking at her phone."Wait... we have a landing pad now?!""Yes..." Jenner shakes her head.After a quick elevator ride (holy shit you have an elevator now!), you and Jenner arrive on the roof of your new building. Sure enough, there's a flat landing pad on the top, and you see large security doors which you assume leads to some sort of secure hangar below. No expense was spared here, you see.A scant few minutes later, you see a trio of Neucom VTOLs appear in the distance. One of them lands on the pad, while the other two hover above in a protective holding pattern. Your eyes manage to catch lots of weaponry packed on them. "Producer!" Dr. Cohen leaps out of the VTOL, carrying a secure case. "It's very good to see you again!""Same here." You nod as you shake his hand. "So what's this new product you've been talking about?""We should go inside for this." Dr. Cohen says. You see two heavily armed Neucom guards walk up behind him. "Okay, we can arrange that." You say, leading him to the elevator. You wonder whether you should bring Falynn along. She was pretty good with AI, so she could provide a second opinion on this.>Call in Falynn.>Proceed without her.>Other
Rolled 9>>32492730>Call in Falynn.
>>32492730>Call in Falynn.
Had the craziest and stupidest idea come to me the other night.What if we had our idols in front of cereal boxes? Just imagine it:>C-O-les comes with REAL BACON BITS!
>>32492730>>Call in Falynn.If we didn't trust her, we wouldn't have hired her in the first place.
>>32492730>Call in Falynn"May I introduce Falynn, our lead engineer. Child prodigy, robotics enthusiast."
>>32492730>>Call in Falynn.
>>32492790Rochelle's cereal:>"It's a Tactical Insertion of deliciousness in every box!"
>>32492730>proceed without herbut record down everything that he does or says. trust but verify
>>32492894Sounds like old military rations to me.Morgan is just venison and bear
>>32492790It is also the saltiest cereal one can find on the market.
>>32492986"Cover Entertainment meals, totally not repackaged MREs."
>>32493003Who the hell would drink salty milk?
Gentlemen, dreadful news.It appears the Producer has begun to consider ways that his idols can... "sell out," as the youth say.It all starts with a cereal endorsement, but then it balloons into action figures, light novel biographies, manga based on said biographies, anime based on said manga and light novels, and then... the movie trilogy adaption which is basically just a remake of the first six and last six episodes and then an original movie which doesn't REALLY fit in with the series and just leaves the audience hungry for a second season that will never be produce.The result: worldwide chaos.We must address this situation as rationally as we can... but our time to do so is limited...
>>32492790Speaking of dumb ideas, I realized that now is the perfect time to covertly knock off some of DeRossa's girls, since it would be assumed that it is the killer. But even if we didn't do that, other producers can realize this an kill other idols under the radar.
>>32492730"You don't mind if I bring my own technical expert, do you? Just to make sure nothing is wrong.""Oh, not at all." Dr. Cohen nods. "In fact, I welcome some independent critique! My lab assistants are usually too scared to point out any flaws in my work it it's incredibly frustrating!""Hey, Falynn." You key your comm. "Mind meeting us in the workshop? We got new toys for you to play with.""Sure thing, boss!" Falynn says happily.Finally, the elevator (god, you still can't get over the fact you have a goddamn elevator!) reaches the lowest level of the building and opens. Falynn is already there, fiddling with some random gadgets on her work table."She's just a child." Dr. Cohen blinks."Oh believe me, she's brilliant at what so does." You assure him. "Falynn! This is Dr. Cohen from Neucom.""Hi there!" She says with a gleam in her eyes. "The Producer told me you were working on some kind of experimental AI! Is that true?!""indeed we are." Dr. Cohen chuckles at Falynn's enthusiasm and opens the case he's carrying. "May I present to you, the Next generation Electronic Machine Operator, or NEMO, as we like to call it."You look and it's that same data disk that you had recovered from those mercs some time ago. Honestly, you don't see what's so special about it, but you see Falynn's eyes literally light up and sparkle."HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIT." Falynn squeals, leaning in for a closer look. "Is this an honest to god quantum processor?!""Indeed it is!" Cohen smiles proudly."But... but... how did you miniaturize it? The smallest quantum computers are currently the size of a car!""Well, it's actually quite simple really..."Uh oh, you can feel technobabble incoming.>Cut straight to the point. You're on a schedule here.>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.>Other
>>32493251>>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.Looks like they both found someone who speaks "English".
>>32493251>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.She can translate it for us afterwards.
>>32493251>>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.And deny any offers for Falynn, you saw her first!
>>32493251>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.Do ask for the translation of the talk though.
>>32493251>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.This is a good thing. If they can build a relationship, then Dr. Cohen will trust us with more secrets.
When will we get to level up our idols again?
>>32493251> Cut straight to the point. You're on a schedule here.
>>32493251>>Let them talk. Falynn and Dr. Cohen seem to be enjoying it.
>>32493251>Cut straight to the point. You're on a schedule here.Sorry to have to stop you guys, but I'm very busy today. Can I get the simple stuff fist then you guys can continue.
>>32493251You decide to let Falynn and Dr. Cohen keep talking. Honestly, every time you even try to HEAR what they're saying, you get dizzy. This is why you never liked hanging out with eggheads too often. However, they both seemed to be enjoying themselves, and at least it would mean forging a more positive connecting with Neucom's head of R&D.At that moment, Stig walks in, looks at Dr. Cohen and Falynn, and then looks at you."Hey Stig." You say. "What's going on?"Stig points to Dr. Cohen and Falynn, as if wondering what the hell was going on."Ah, they're talking about some kind of new driving AI or something."Stig then crosses his arms in a huff. He obviously doesn't seem happy.>You'll just have to get used to to working with it.>Don't worry. We can always have it drive another vehicle.>Other
>>32493477>Don't worry. We can always have it drive another vehicle.
>>32493477> Give it a try. They'll want to get good feedback, and if it can't keep up with you then they can improve it.
>>32493477>Don't worry. We can always have it drive another vehicle.What if we had an automated motorcycle for a stealthy and quick getaway of VIPs while Stig comes in and picks up the combat idols under fire.
>>32493477>Other"Give it a try. They'll want to get good feedback, and if it can't keep up with you then they can improve it."
>>32493477>>You'll just have to get used to to working with it."Come on stig, it's not like it'll be replacing you. And if things go to shit, you can always count on more vehicular backup."
>>32493477>>Don't worry. We can always have it drive another vehicle.We should buy one of those expensive combat VTOLs and stick it in that.
>>32493503>>32493524To add to these:"Send back feedback, keep the sponsors happy, get more money, and hopefully someday we can get a VTOL to have fun with."
>>32493477"Oh come on, at least give it try before you start getting all pouty." You laugh. "Besides, they'll want to get good feedback on the thing, and who better than the best goddamn driver I know?"That little bit ego stroking seems to do the trick, and Stig's posture loosens up in acceptance."All right, we are ready to plug this bad boy in!" Falynn says, clasping the small quantum processor tightly in her grip. "Which vehicle are we gonna test it on?">The van>The SUV>Jenner's car>Other
>>32493477Also merc, is there a chance we can get a second hand VTOL from our sponsors?
>>32493777>The SUVIsn't this the one with built in mount point already?
>>32493777We can take it out and put it in something else later, right?>The SUV
>>32493777>The SUVDo we still have that turret?
>>32493777> The SUVIt's one of our best vehicles AND it was already modded for use with the AI>
>>32493777>The SUVIt's what has the slot specifically designed for it.
>>32493777"Well, the SUV, of course." You say. "Okay, just making sure." Falynn pops the hood open and carefully inserts the processor. The SUV is silent for several brief seconds before the engine suddenly roars to life, causing Falynn to yelp in fright and literally leap into Stig's arms. Heh. That was actually kinda funny.On the roof of the SUV, you see a small camera on a swivel mount, usually used to check the vehicle's blind spots, focus and look around."NEMO v1.0 ACTIVATED." Your SUV rumbles. "REQUESTING INSTRUCTIONS.""Ewww, that voice sounds a bit too harsh. Not user friendly at all." Falynn frowns. "Maybe I can adjust it to sound more erm, friendly? Maybe a bit more feminine...">Sure, go ahead.>Just keep it the way it is.>Other
>>32494056>Sure, go ahead.
>>32494056Leave the call to Stig, I mean he's the one that's going to be stuck driving it 99.9% of the time.
>>32494056>>Sure, go ahead.>otherTo Dr Cohen: "Can the module be swapped between other vehicles from Neucom? Plug and Play?"
>>32494056>>Sure, go ahead.
>>32494056>>Sure, go ahead.Whatever floats your boat.Now I'm just waiting for a holographic avatar.
>>32494056> Turn to Stig. "It's your car. Your choice."
>>32494056>>Sure, go ahead.Its either a hot sexy female voice or Pierce Brosnan
>>32494082Actually, can we request a secondhand or discount VTOL? For testing and general usage purposes.
>>32494056>Other"Don't change it too much; Neucomm still wants data and it might not be good if NEMO get's changed too much."
>>32494056>OtherAsk Stigit's his new waifu
>>32494079You know, it would be funny if NEMO became the Stig's robot waifu like Joker and Eva in ME3
>>32494056>"Maybe I can adjust it to sound more erm, friendly? Maybe a bit more feminine..."Camilla? I am totally down with that.
>>32494056This is Stig's decision.
>>32494373This will be stig's waifu
>>32494056"Stig, what do you think?" You say, turning to your driver.Stig just shrugs. You guess that answer is just as good as any."Alright, go for it, Falynn." You say. "It's not going to damage anything, is it?""Oh, of course not! They designed this thing to be completely customizable!" Falynn says."It's true." Dr. Cohen nods. "We found that operators were more willing to work with AIs they were able to personally tune to their tastes."Huh, so you guess that was a thing."All right, there we go!" Falynn shuts the hood again. "Nemo. Audio test.""Testing vocal ranges. AAAAAAAaaaaaaAAAAaaAAAAAAaaaa." NEMO hums. She definitely sounded MUCH better than before, that was for sure. "No issues detected.""All right, so we can start test driving this thing!" Falynn says, looking at Stig and then at you. "Wanna join in?">Sure why not.>Actually I got more things to take care of.>Other
>>32494531>>Actually I got more things to take care of.We have a busy day
>>32494531>>Actually I got more things to take care of.

>>32494531>Sure why not.
>>32494531>Actually I got more things to take care of.Stig should keep us updated. Maybe.
>>32494531>Actually I got more things to take ofBusy busy busy
Perhaps we can finally outfit our idols with carapace armour without weighing them down.
>>32494600And, for some reason, I'm now thinking of Idol X-COM.
>>32494683We've been basically playing that you know?
>>32494531"Sorry, I'm just way too busy today." You sigh. "Stig, give it a test whirl and let us know what you think. Falynn, I guess show Dr. Cohen around?""Aye aye!"

>>32495374It's been 30 minutes since his last post, take it easy bruh.
In the meantime, how do we feel about SHODAN as the house AI?All in favor say aye.
>>32494960"Let's check out our existing facilities." You say."All right." Jenner nods.You've already seen the workshop and its expanded capacity. You could fit more vehicles, and you saw space that could be used to add more specialized equipment to the workshop, like repair facilities or even full on fabrication machines. There was even a hangar added for flying vehicles.Next up was the infirmary, or more like a full on clinic. Not all the space was taken up, but you knew there were places you could set up top of the line medial equipment... if you could afford it.Similarly, the data center also seemed to have room for expansion. Mostly to add more powerful computer equipment.However, it didn't really seem like your other facilities such as the performance rooms, counseling hall, and accounting really needed that much more work. At least in you opinion.>You have unlocked FACILITY UPGRADES. In the future, the shoplist will now stock items that can be used to upgrade certain facilities. While these will boost their capabilities, this will result in an increase in upkeep."Everything feels...smaller. Or a lot more empty." You frown."It's just all the extra space messing with your perceptions." Jenner shrugs. "What next?">Tour the new facilities.>Organize the joint training session.>Investigate the idol killer.>Other

>>32495643Homework before play, Anon.
Been thinking on how we take revenge on DeRosa, and here's what I've come up with.We announce to them that we know they did it, but instead of taking vengeance, we say that we'll plan for something spectacular.A few things could happen:1. They don't buy the bluff and up security. If that happens, we simply wait for an ungodly amount of time until they become sloppy.2. They become paranoid. The fun happens when we screw with their minds and deprive them of a good night's sleep.
>>32495674How old are you? Like, 8?
>>32495674That is a stupid idea. And no that doesn't mean we should it. It's fucking stupid.
>>32495674Right now hes busy trying to figure out if we know or not. Why clear that up for him? He'll be indecisive right now.
>>32495674If you actually want to tangibly and materially strike back, we need Hims to break in and get us scheduling info.Once we know we're they'll be and what they're doing we can plan how to kill DeRosa and/or his idols.
>>32495674>>32495716I'll echo this Anon sentiment.
>>32495674oh wow, summer is officially here now.
>>32495674Dude, we have a plan, if we do another thing in their district but beef up security, if they try something, we take em out/capture their idols
>>32495563>>32495637Oh, I just remembered this. We should also send our NEET hacker-ette over to meet Mr. Cohen, between Falynn and her, they would have a blast with our new A.I. friend.
>>32495879God you really are a special kind of moron.You can't be a NEET if you have a job, show up to work, and draw a salary. Oh my Christ.
>>32495563"How about the newer facilities?" You ask."Ah, I was wondering when you'd ask." Jenner says. "Here, I'll show you."Jenner then leads you back down to the elevator, which takes you down to the lowest level. There, you find a darkened basement level that contains rows and rows of very secure looking cages."A prison?" You blink."I prefer the term 'holding facility.'" Jenner says. "I thought it would be a prudent addition after what happened with Horizon.""Makes sense.""And it would also be a nice way to discipline any of the girls if they get too naughty." Jenner cracks a smile."No Jenner. Stop." You grin and shake your head."Just putting the idea forward." Jenner nods. "There's one last thing you should see."You are then brought to a blank white room. Completely empty and featureless."What am I looking at here?" You blink, confused."This, is the latest in combat simulation technology." Jenner says, hitting a switch. "Dr. Cohen calls it a Danger Room."Suddenly, a tank materializes in the center of the room and fires a shell over your head. In your mind, you know that it's just a construct, but you still instinctively duck."What the hell!?""The latest in VR training technology." Jenner continues. "It uses hard light to generate physical, holographic constructs that can be used for training purposes. They can't hurt anything, of course.""Interesting..." You nod. This would be a very useful asset."Anyways, that's all for now, unless we embark on any further construction projects." Jenner says.>Meet Rin's grandfather.>Organize the joint training session.>Investigate the idol killer.>Other

>>32495940>>Meet Rin's grandfather.This is actually the first time we're meeting a parent of the idol.P-san considers himself to be a psuedo-father of sorts to the girls but we never meet the real thing until now
>>32496039Sounds like a good use of her time.We could use a combat crew that gets shit done.
>>32495940>Meet Rin's grandfather.>"And it would also be a nice way to discipline any of the girls if they get too naughty." Jenner cracks a smile.Oh ho? I say Jenner might be into that kink herself.>>32495987Oh my.
>>32495940> Meet Rin's grandfather.> "And it would also be a nice way to discipline any of the girls if they get too naughty." Jenner cracks a smile.And now the fapfiction is being written...
>>32496063Mostly because P-san only preys on orphans, as they're harder to trace within the system.
>>32496064Not really, she needs a hobby. I'm all for her being a well trained battle idol but she needs something a bit beyond it.
What if we put Jenner in a cell
>>32496003>>32496079Jenner walks in on P-san surrounded by Jenner clones in various attire ranging from Playboy Bunny, Meido, and everything he can imagine.
>>32496087Hey, only like 37.5% of our idols are orphans.
>>32496107Do it P-san! You know you want to!
>>32496107And they're all rubbing his feet, serving him coffee, giving him a shoulder massage, playing a game of chess with him, and reading him the latest news.
>>32496107God help him if she discovers that he programmed different clones with different personalities...
>>32496107As I imagine this, I see Virtual Lilith in a very small corner in a cardboard box with drooping dog ears
>Meet Rin's grandfather.I'm kinda expecting him to be an Iraq vet or a former singer or the actual Im@s producer who married [insert idol waifu here] and had kids.Of course, that's based completely on narrative logic so I'm not holding my breath.
Good lord, how many times are you going to delete and redo your post.
>>32496172third time's the charm
>>32496182That's what I was wondering.I mean really spoilers aren't that hard.
>>32496039We ain't got any combat data for him AFAIK, anon.
>>32496127Now we should get Jenner and Lilith in maid outfits one day for reasons.
>>32496222True, but I guess Melissa may kind of know what he's like personality-wise since he most likely wasn't even serious when he beat the crap out of her.
>>32496200It's the first time I've posted on /tg/ in ages, sorry. Been lurking for forever.
>>32496247Or a Bunny outfit for Lilith.

>>32496325God please don't say that word. You're going to cause fluff to go full PTSD regressive flashback and it'll never stop.
>>32495940"Hey, what about Rin's grandfather?" You ask."Oh, him? Mr. Shibuya is already in his room." Jenner says. "I can show you."Again, Jenner leads you to the housing block. Unlike the previous office dorms, the housing block was completely modular, so it would be easy to add on additional habitation blocks if needed. However, Jenner had told you that 8 idols was a healthy number, so you'll keep it that way for the foreseeable future."Here it is." Jenner says, showing you the door. "Though I have to warn you, even though his health isn't too good, he's far more athletic than he seems and he can be a bit... eccentric.""How eccentric are we talking about?" Your raise an eyebrow."You should see for yourself." Jenner coughs.You note that she doesn't enter the room when you do."Hm? Another visitor?" You see a wizened old man roll forward on a wheelchair. "Ah, you must be the Producer Rin talks about so much!""It's a pleasure to finally meet you, Mr. Shibuya." You nod respectfully. "Rin speaks highly of you.""Ah, she does, does she?" Mr. Shibuya chortles and then coughs. "It's an interesting setup you've got here.""Well, yes." You nod. "Actually, Rin never actually said what you do...""Oh, there will be plenty of time for that later." Mr. Shibuya nods and cranes his head. "Is that Miss Jenner? Ah, she won't come in?""Is there a reason for that?" You narrow your eyes."I... might have acquired her bra." He chuckles."What." You blink."I've had a colorful past, Producer. Being able to steal a woman's undergarments is a special skill I'm particularly proud of!"You can feel Jenner's glare boring a hole in Mr. Shibuya's forehead.>Who the hell are you?>Please give them back.>...can you teach me?>Other

>>32496384OH SHIT THIS WAS A GREAT FUCKING DECISION>Who the hell are you?Don't ask for them back. Jenner will catch you with them.Rin's grandfather had to be a harem protagonist or something. His ability to create awkward situations might rub off onto us.

>>32496384>>Other"...Wait you stole them OFF Jenner?"Turn around.
>>32496384>Please give them back.then Whisper to him to teach him that skill later >>32496344It's alright anon. I know that Puchis will show up sooner or later. All we have to do is wait.
Should we warn him about what could happen if he does something like that to the girls (especially Julie, and Cole), or should we watch it unfold?
>>32496264Possible, but unlikely and situationally useful at best. Good thinking, however.>>32496344Puchis are mandatory, anon.
>>32496384>>32496477Oh wait, she's not wearing her bra?
>>32496477...YES. CHECK THE THEFT.

>>32496477Holy crap, can we deploy this man against the DeRosa idols? Wardrobe malfunctions here we come.

... Yeah. Stay classy guys. Stay... classy.
>>32496608You're on 4chan, bro. If you want to be the Supreme Gentleman head over to Space battles or whatever.I dunno, point is you're on 4chan during the summer. Embrace the child.
>>32496608Flustered jenner is the cutest
>>32496608This is /tg/ anon. This is a tame response really.
>>32496384"Wait, do you mean you stole them OFF Jenner?" You blink.Mr. Shibuya just shrugs and you turn to face Jenner, who is still glaring daggers at him. You take a quick glance at her chest and notice that they are indeed a little "looser". Was she going around unsupported this whole time...?NO. FOCUS, PRODUCER."I'm just a man good at acquiring items." Mr. Shibuya chuckles, snapping you back to reality."Please give them back, Mr. Shibuya." You sigh. "And I recommend you don't pull anything like this on the girls or our staff.""Oh dear, I'll keep that in mind." Mr. Shibuya nods. "I don't want my sweet Rin thinking less of me!""Just so we understand." You nod. "Now please return it." "As you wish. It's a really nice one, too." Mr. Shibuya sighs and holds out a bra, black and lacy.In a flash, Jenner is in the room and snatches it back, her face now beet red. You think it's better to just keep quite as she stomps out. Once you're sure she's out of range, you lean in and whisper."...can you teach me how to do that?""Ah, I've been looking for a disciple!" Mr. Shibuya chuckles. "Meet me later tonight. My bones feel a little less stiff when the sun goes down.""I'll keep that in mind." You nod as you exit the room."Well, you were right. He was interesting." You say to Jenner."Right. Let's go." She says, still flustered.>Tease Jenner>Organize the joint training session.>Investigate the idol killer.>Other
>>32496288Yes, let's try our hardest to re-awaken any costume related trauma she may or may not have from her days as an idol.For our own personal gratification.I'm up for this.
>>32496659>Tease Jenner>Organize the joint training session.we can do both
>>32496659A flustered Jenner is probably a murderous one. Kind of like what happens when you've got Charlie in the trees and you've had nothing to eat for three days except go-pills and a tab of acid you kept in your helmet that you sweated through in the Vietnamese heat.>Organize the training session

>>32496659>Tease Jenner>Organize the joint training session.
>>32496742You know she sorta likes the attention
>>32496659>Tease"Did we accidentally recruit a covert ops trainer?"
>>32496659>>Tease Jenner>Organize the joint training session.>>32496742Totally worth it.
>>32496742We know she was military, and competent. If Rin's grandfather was able to pull a fast one on her, that's worrisome.We've got to know what exactly we just invited into our base.
>>32496659"You know, I didn't think an old guy would get the drop on you like that." You say with a grin."He caught me off guard, that's all." Jenner grumbles. "And what was I supposed to do? Beat up an old man?""You know, it's not really helping that dangerous, mysterious aura you try to project.""I DO NOT try to project a dangerous and mysterious aura." Jenner frowns. "Why do people always think that?"Oh, poor Jenner."You know, I never did find out your size-""You realize I have a gun, right?""Okay, stopping now." You say quickly.Well, you might as well try to organize that joint training session with Zenith. With the Danger Room, that would make things MUCH easier, but you have to figure out what to focus on...>Firearms>Close Combat>Armor>Hazard Course>Other
We have happosai in the house.His assurances mean nothing. All our girls will be targetted.
>>32496827>>ArmorFor the heavy armour proficiency and carapace armour
>>32496827>Firearms>Hazard CourseCombine the two>captcha: Reft ansferRight answer indeed.
>>32496827What does "Hazard Course" level exactly, Merc?
>>32496827> Awareness.This guy is taking down combat idols without a scratch. Having them better prepared to sniff out ambushes is a priority.
>>32496827>ArmorHazard Course while wearing ArmorGotta teach our girls the importance of using proper protection.>>32496831He targets our girls, we target him, just like any other punk....Oh, wait. He's Rin's grandfather. That could be a problem.
>>32496869Imagine Mirror's Edge set in Fallujah circa 2005.
>>32496827>Firearms>Hazard CourseBoth at the same time. Emphasis on water.
>>32496827>Close CombatWe seem to have more injuries during that, I think we should improve the general skill since we keep getting into that
>>32496827>>FirearmsDude Sparky doesn't know how to use a gun
>>32496896You know, you could just make better choices instead of blaming circumstance or others.
>>32496827>>ArmorBeen eyeing the carapace for awhile now. For all our girls.
>>32496827>Firearms>Hazard CourseWe do need to get Sparks firearm level up a bit.
>>32496913It's really more just bad luck. Rochelle got hammered that one time because of a lot of 1s.
>>32496827>>Close CombatBy the way, guys, I have the sinking suspicion that the serial killer might not be alone. That is, there's more than one serial killer. Anyone else get that vibe?
>>32496878Accidents happen or in this case, he does something we tell on Rin.
>>32496955I'm not making any pointless speculation until we've done some basic investigation.
>>32496975But isn't the point of pointless speculation that you haven't done any investigating?
>>32496997Fair, but it's still worthless to do such things.
>>32497009True. It doesn't stop many people though.
>>32496827You decide you'll be doing an armor training course today. After all, you're eventually going to have to teach your girls how to handle and move around in heavier armor. Simple tactical and ballistic vests could only go so far, after all. The Zenith idols arrived as scheduled. Hillman sent over his three best idols, Kaleidoscope, Heartlancer, and Shadowblade. They arrive by car. As you've seen before, Kaleidoscope seems glum and shy as ever, while Heartlancer looks enthusiastic. The new idol, Shadowlancer, seems rather curious about the whole situation.>Let the idols mingle for a bit.>Cut straight to training.>Other
>>32497043>>Let the idols mingle for a bit.Better to have them get a feel for each other
>>32497043>Let the idols mingle for a bit.
>>32497043> Let the idols mingle for a bit.> Get to know the idols ourselves. Ask them what they specialize in, and if they enjoy their jobs as "magical girls".
>>32497043>>Let the idols mingle for a bit.
>>32497043>>Let the idols mingle for a bit.>>OtherYou join in too IF these newcomers have any questions about you or the training.
>>32497043>Cut straight to training.Normally I be up for it, but I say leave it for after they've gone through some of the training stuff.
>>32497043>Let the idols mingle for a bitGive them 30 mins to let us get used to the controls and for them to talk.
>>32497157is 4chan broken?
>>32497502just no posts i guess.
>>32497532There's nothing to discuss, anon.
>>32497552Monster Girl Idols. Go.
>>32497552Yeah, not even a waifu war to be had.In a quest thread.Holy shit.
I wonder if Cole could power a railgun.
>>32497579Best Daughter War, then?.
>>32497603They all are.
so did merc commander die or something?
>>32497579Daughteru > Waifu>>32497603I'd say our first 3 combat idols: Rochelle, Julie, and Cole. They've been around the longest, and grown closest to us.
>>32497619Long-ish post, delays, or other. Take your pick.
>>32497603We can legit adopt them all. No war, only mass adoptions.
>>32497603That's pointless, since we don't have to choose.Parental favoritism is a terrible thing, anyway.
>>32497603Cole a best. Julie a shit.
>>32497603They are all the bestBut Cole is my favorite with Rochelle a close second
Remember when everyone thought that having Cole around was a bad idea?
>>32497702yup i was thinking that a couple minutes ago
>>32497642Adopt cole julie and melissa
>>32497702Remember that time when Anonymous is a moron?
>>32497603If I have to pick, I'd say that Cole has definitely been the most entertaining, and has inspired the most young men to drive motorcycles through doors while blaring Meatloaf.And that's what's important in a woman.
>>32497761not gonna lie if I had a teenage daughter and a suiter of hers did that I would give him the thumbs up
>>32497702I admit, when I was reading the archives I was nervous about her, too. She's definitely been the highlight of the quest, though.Honestly adopting her would be a fantastic thing to see.
>>32497803Still the moment he makes cole cry the shotgun comes out.
>>32497818I'd say all the girls would want a piece of him if he made Cole cry. She's like the little sister of the group.
>>32497818Depends on why she's crying.I've seen people cry about difficult homework, for crying out loud - and relationships are more difficult than homework.
I doubt Rin's granddad would go after any of the idols... at least ours anyways. They're Rin's friends.But for the love of god, keep him away from Lilith.
>>32497892...oh our poor nurse.Shes going to get sekihara'd so bad.
>>32497857Now that you think about it, we barely know any shit about the pasts of the Tombs girls aside from Melissa. If anything, Cole could actually seen the worst shit.>>32497892Agreed, we took him in to make him comfortable, not break his hands
>>32497880If she's crying because of homework then the shotgun comes out until that little prick helps her study. We won't let a dumb brick date our idol daughter.
Sorry about the delay guys, I'm working the post right now!
>>32497911>>32497917That and some perverted guy may or may not trigger a fit of unstoppable rage. She is an ex-idol and from the sounds of things, PTSD isn't too unheard of from them.
>>32497880Shes crying because he got her drenched.
If merc doesn't come back think he'll run Idol quest on sunday?
>>32497892Yeah, considering her past, that could get really bad very quickly.In other news, we don't see enough of Lillith.
>>32497935"Uuuuuhhh...context please?"Shotgun still comes out.
>>32497954He must have insisted on riding Splash Mountain.Shotgun still comes out.
>>32497952The twist is Lilith was actually a combat idol rather than a performance idol.
>>32497933Yeah, well I think he understand do not touch the girls or the staff.Part of me still kind of want him to do that to the latter just to see Lillith's reaction but it may not be worth it if she is still suffering for it.She got enough of that during her idol career.
>>32497935That would probably be less funny to me if the Lewinsky scandal hadn't been the reason for my being given 'the talk'.I asked why people cared about the dress so much.
>>32497964>>He must have insisted on riding Splash Mountain.L-l-lewd...
>>32497981Haaaaaaaaaaa. Cyberpunk Idols/Wetwork Idols crossover event! Starring Lilith!
>>32497952True true, but we're limited to what the choices give us. That and she's where most of our questionable decisions come to bite us in the ass as she doesn't approve of morale lowering stuff that /tg/ tends to end up doing.>>32497981Who to say, I wouldn't rule it out (considering how Haku's chronically playing 2nd/third fiddle to Miku even despite whatever other talents)
>>32497981No shit she was.Of course, we know that didn't prevent her from getting targeted by opportunistic photographers, so I'm not sure that makes a difference.
>>32497043You decide to let the idols mingle for a bit and familiarize themselves."Are you a sniper?" Morgan says, approaching Kaleidoscope."H-how do you know?" The black haired magical girl blinks in surprise."I can tell these things." Morgan says. "How did you start? Hobby? Hunting? Necessity?""Um, hobby I guess." Kaleidoscope frowns. "Really?" Morgan leans in closer. "How many people did you kill?""Um, well, I haven't erm, really killed anybody..." Kaleidoscope says nervously. "I just kinda use my rifle to scare people...""Ah, understandable." Morgan nods. "I actually killed five people already.""W-what?!" Kaleidoscope gasps. "Who?""Russian mafia is scary. My family is scarier." Morgan shrugs. One time, they tried to shake down one of my granduncles in the woods. They never came back. We told the authorities it was a bear attack.""And I assume bears use guns in your country?""In Soviet Russia, bear shoots YOU." Morgan nods. Meanwhile, Julie and Heartlancer seemed to be hitting it off rather well. Honestly, they could have been identical twins if it weren't the fact that Heartlancer's assets were.... significantly smaller, much to her apparent annoyance."It's not like I need useless fat anyways!" She says in a huff."Awwww, it's not so bad!" Julie chortles. "But it's a real bitch to get armor over these things sometimes!"Shadowblade seemed to be in a discussion with Rochelle over the merits of certain types of gear."Now, EOTech is cool and all, but all those fancy electronics are easy to fry or hack." Shadowblade sighs. "You're not using ID-tagged guns, are you?""Oh god no." Rochelle shakes her head. "After what happened in Prague I don't think anybody wants anything to do with that crap anymore.""Smart decision." Shadowblade nods. "And- OHMYGOD IS THAT A CYBERHOUND!?!""Yeah!" Rochelle nods. "His name's K-Zwolf.""HE'S SO CUUUUUUUUUTE!" Shadowblade squeals. (cont)
>>32498044>She's where we get bit in the ass...Lewd.Yeah, we're blaming the thermometer for the fever.I do my part. Every time we get an [other] and there's nothing else going on, I suggest we talk to our counselor about our idols.
>>32498109Huh, maybe they weren't all so different after all. After a little more time passes, you finally clap your hands to get the idols' attention."All right, girls, since we're going to be working together for a while, I thought we'd start working on some join exercises!" You say. "So today, we'll be running a hazard course, but no just any hazard course. You're going to learn to move and maneuver while wearing heavy armor!"You then bring out a set of heavy carapace armor to show the girls."Now, full body armor like this can be extremely heavy and bulky, and hard to move around in. However, it gives significantly better protection, so it's always a tradeoff between protection and mobility. However, there are ways to mitigate the bulk. Unfortunately, it's something that can only be achieved by lots of practice."You hear the girls groan."All right, I'll need volunteers.">Who should go first?
>>32498134Wait, where's Marisa?Also Merc, are you ever going to use her proper name?
>>32498109>In Soviet Russia, bear shoots YOU.I'm just gonna assume there are genetically engineered or augmented bears running around with guns in the wilds of cyberpunk Russia.
>>32498147>Also Merc, are you ever going to use her proper name?Never.
>>32498134> JULIE.She's meant for this stuff.
>>32498150Or worse...Cyber Bears that started an uprising
>>32498134Have Julie Volunteer since she is the one used to it
>>32498109>Kaleidoscope says nervously. "I just kinda use my rifle to scare people..."As expected of Alice.>Who will go firstShadowblade and Rochelle.
>>32498157If I knew you would be stuck on that nickname so much I might have never written it in.Then again, that reference to the Master Spark was too good to pass up.
>>32498134>Julie...Is this a trick question?>>32498175>Ursines of the earth, unite!
>>32498109>"It's not like I need useless fat anyways!" She says in a huff.USELESS MEAT
I wonder how Horizon is doing.It'll be shitty if rossa got their claws in them and got them to work against us.They're the group with more distant ties with us and we've already directly clashed so we're only at a professional level relationship.
>>32498134Julie, she's been wearing heavy armor since before we even met her, so she's the most likely to perform well. We need to give the other idols a good example to follow.
>>32498269HOPES AND DREAMS.
>>32498350That looks painful.Really hot, but painful.
>>32498350...You just gave me boobplate flashbacks.Goddamnit anon.
>>32498376I was just about to say that.Anyone have that gif?
>>32498350>>32498269Please stop posting those disgusting things.
>>32498421>posting the edited versionYou should like small, flat chests. Like Cole's.
>>32498413I love almost everything about that show. EXCEPT THE FUCKING BOOBPLATE HOLY SHIT WHY DOES IT MAKE ME SO MAD! I DON'T EVEN USUALLY GIVE A SHIT BUT WHY!!!!!!!
>>32498413It's like the animators had no clue where to stop.
>>32498391Breasts are love.
>>32498453It's just the metal moving slightly when it's hit.
>>32498447>like Cole'sDo we know the bust sizes of any of the idols besides Julie?
>>32498467To be honest, the flowing hair and sarashi are doing way more for me than the breasts.
>>32498453>I love almost everything about that show.Why was this show so damn enjoyable? I came in with such low expectations and left sadden knowing there wasn't going to be s2...
>>32498453>>32498470Liquid metal boobplate
>>32498134"Julie, you've got experience in this." You say. "How about you demonstrate for everybody.""Sure thing!" Julie says as she happily starts strapping on the heavy armor. "Now, the thing is, there's no magic way to make wearing heavy body armor any easier. You just gotta have the strength to power through it. However, if there's one thing you really want to do, it's that you want to make sure it's strapped down TIGHT. The last thing you need is armor plates flapping around and getting caught in stuff."At this point, Julie was now fully clad. "Now, really, the best defense is to avoid getting shot in the first place. No matter how good the armor you're wearing is, there's always something that's going to punch it, and there's going to be a point where armor is so goddamn heavy you'd never be able to move in it. "You then set up the programmed hazard course. It wasn't anything too special. Just various obstacles that had to be maneuvered around, climbed over, and crawled under.Julie starts off strong, moving as if she the armor wasn't even bothering her. She easily leaps over a few low walls, scales a much taller wall, and crawls under a set of wire. She finishes the entire course in under a minute."See? Nothing to it." Julie grins. "Who wants a try?">Choose an idol!
>>32498470But it's not. It's a supposedly solid metal plate jiggling like a breast! And it does it in the opening too!Gah. I need a gif of the tactician now.
>>32498486COLE IS FLATDON'T BREAK MY ILLUSION
>>32498486well we know Rochelle is kind of flat from the Valentine's day oneshot
>>32498511>RochelleHave the team lead do it then Colo, and everyone else yadda yadda
>>32498519Anon, that's not flat. That's just small/petite. >>32498511Make Marisa do it.
>>32498511>HeartlancerThis is training for the both of us, right?
>>32498511>MarisaI'd say she needs the armor more than most.
>>32498511Go rochelle!You know you want to.
>>32498511Rochelle or Heartlancer
>>32498559They're all going through it...
>>32498514Ask and you shall receive dear Anon.
>>32498511>>Choose an idol!Heartlancer, then Rochelle.
>>32498559>>32498578>>32498587>>32498600She'll just blast a hole through the entire course, then run through it.
>>32498583Thank you anon. I would cuddle her so hard.
>>32498620...I actually want to see this.
>>32498629That show had such a great setup episode, and was such a letdown after that.
Great. Now I have another show to watch.But I have so much backlog already...
>>32498629What show is that?
>>32498679Boku no Boring Psychic Melodrama.
>>32498657I went in expecting shit, I got mostly humorous, decent animation and enough fun that I have no complaints.Besides boobplate holy shit I don't know why it bugs me so much.>>32498668I enjoyed it. >>32498679I don't know, I just have the gif.
>>32498668>backlogWe all have one of some kind. Best not to think about it.
>>32498701I was actually talking about the show you pulled your gif from./tg/ - where you'll either get bitched at for being a weeb on the slightest pretext, or spend an hour swapping anime gifs with friendly strangers.
I think things veer towards sizable/plush/etc considering who Jenner and Lilith are based off of (not small girls by any stretch)
>>32498701>>32498731Oh, I should have been more clear.I meant the show with the bouncing boobplate and them legs tactician.
>>32498727And to think this all started with boobs. Truly magnificent gifts they are.
>>32498727Oh, then yeah, I have no idea. >>32498744Jenner and Lilith are both easily in the sizeable/extra large category.
>>32498767Cheers anon. Another one for the backlog
>>32498754Oda Nobuna. Something about some modern day teenager going to the Warring States Era to perv on female Nobunaga.
>>32498744As far as I can tell she is one the very stacked side of things compared to the other Vocaloids.
>>32498773>)Producer is a man with taste
>>32498791I wonder if producer recorded his glimpses of lil' jenners' freedom
>>32498790Depends heavily on the artist, though.I think Luka's usually the most voluminous, though.>>32498791That was decided as soon as we decided to not perv on our idols.
>>32498805>>32498791Casual day Jenner when?
>>32498511"Sparky, you're up." You say. You're pretty sure a demo like her would need to know how to wear some decent armor."Sure thing, boss!" Sparky grins as she steps up. Julie helps strap the carapace armor on. "So I just gotta reach the end, right?""Yes, WITHOUT blowing up the obstacles." You say sternly."Fiiiiiiine." Sparky rolls her eyes.>roll 1d20

>>32498834Sparky makes a decent effort, but it's clear that despite the brave, confident face she puts up, she's struggling to move effectively. It takes her about three minutes to finish the course."Goddamn, that shit is TOUGH." Sparky pants."Okay then, you all know the drill." You say.

At this time I'd like to start a motion that we be able to spend Star Power in order to increase Best-of-3 rolls to Best-of-4 or Best-of-5.We wouldn't be able to collect Star Power off any 20s, but we'd still get a 20's worth of success.

>>32499176A perk, maybe.
>>32499176Having [whichever girl that is] be able to wear carapace or exoskeleton at no penalty is worth.
>>32499145NI'd like whoever has that has the Heavy armor skill

>>32499346Kind of wondering why we even vote when it's, literally, left to chance what feels like a LOT of times.
>>32499322>You know have 3 STAR POWERAfter a day of drilling, you see that only three of your idols besides Julie seem to be getting the hang of moving around in heavy armor. It appeared that Rochelle, Melissa, and Sparky were taking to the training pretty well. Meanwhile, on the Zenith side, Heartlancer and Shadowblade were doing well, while Kaleidoscope was really struggling."Morgan, Cole, do you two need help?" You ask."I don't like it." Cole frowns. "Just doesn't feel right. I like to be able to MOVE, you know? I hate all this heavy, bulky shit!""As a sniper, I don't even really need heavy armor." Morgan frowns. "It really just gets in the way, and if I'm in a situation where I'm being shot at, I'm pretty much dead anyways.">Okay, we'll wrap things up, then.>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.>Other
>>32499379>>Okay, we'll wrap things up, then.
>>32499379>>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.They make fair points but P-san will want them at least protected as much as possible
>>32499379>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.This training and will be times where they won't be able to run around or be safe behind others.
>>32499379>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.You're gonna wear it and you're gonna fucking like it. In fact, you're going to stay in the suit until dinner tonight.
>>32499379>>Other"I get morgan's point but cole, you're one of our assaults and one of our squad leaders to boot. We can have you getting hurt. -I- cant bear to see you getting hurt. So please wear it for now. When we find some better lighter armour, it'll be yours."
>>32499379Ask Falynn to make them lighter.
>>32499420SL and FTL are two different things... just saying. And Cole would fall under the FTL at this time.
>>32499379>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.
>>32499420>>32499435Also, hell no. None of this wish-washy crap either.
>>32499433Will you ask Falynn to make the bullets tearing through their soft tissue less dangerous too?
>>32499379>>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.I get Morgan's point but she our goal is to prevent such a death anyway and if armor can help out even a little, we'll make sure she can do it
>>32499379>Okay, we'll wrap things up, then.Fair enough, we just wanna show you that it is an option esp. where we will we doing most of our missions i.e. an urban environment
Looks like it's time for the age old argument over armor vs mobility.
>>32499435We've passed her operational command during a mission though.In that, wouldnt she be a squad leader as well? More ASL but still.
>>32499379>Okay, we'll wrap things up, then.Just remember, being comfortable has nothing to do with this, it's the difference between getting shot and shrugging it of or, bleeding out all over your fellow idols.
>>32499468>giving the mage heavy armorWhy?
>>32499468Except there's not really an arguement since it's pretty obvious that you (see: Julie) can wear carapace with no material loss in agility.So, you know...it's basically a bunch of Elegant Gentlemen trying to be Nice Guys.
>>32499485Because in Shadowrun you always geek the mage first.This isn't one of your designed by dipshit D&D games. They will be shot at and they will die if not given adequate protection.
>>32499379>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.There's a reason why we're doing the training. And times you can't be choose about where you get sent. Most the time you don't get a real say. That armor can and will save them.
>>32499531I doubt it's a weight issue. It's a Cole and Morgan issue.They're not "comfortable," because they're little shits. Producer will run it out of them.
>>32499379>Ask Falynn to make them lighter.
>>32499379>Being comfortable has nothing to do with this.but>Ask Falynn to make them lighter.
>>32499567No, both of them rely on mobility over durability. That's their fighting style. They can "just deal with it."
>>32499531Yeah, stress the importance of armor to Cole ("All the mobility in the world can't help you dodge a bullet, you know?") but try to get Falynn to see if she can retrofit carapace armor with lighter materials on less vital areas like the joints. Morgan's technically right, so I don't think we need to lecture her as hard.
>>32499604>They can "just deal with it."Yes, that's generally what I and the others are advocating.They'll fucking get used to it, because it's be uncomfortable now or be dead later.
>>32499604And in tight areas where they can't move? What then? Just eat the bullet. You need stop thinking every mission will have the prefect spot for them.q
>>32499604Do you not wear a seatbelt when in a car because it's uncomfortable and your driving style relies on mobility over longevity?Because that's, literally, what you're suggesting.
>>32499610It was a typo
>>32499630what the seatbelt does not fuck with mobility unless you are crawling all over your car or some shit like that
>>32499379"Come on, you two, this isn't about feeling comfortable." You sigh. "There may be a time where wearing a little heavier armor can save your life. Can you at least try?""Okay..." Morgan sighs."Fiiiine." Cole nods.>roll 2d20
Rolled 1, 10 = 11>>32499693
>>32499660Likewise, carapace armor obviously doesn't prevent Julie from being agile and maneuverable, so you basically debunked your own argument all by yourself.I mean, you realize the reason Cole's saying armor is stupid and it sucks is because she's bad at it, right?If she had succeeded it would've been WHOO YEAH SHIT'S AWESOME.

>>32499749>>32499754Do this, the only scenario Morgan could get into where heavy armor would actually help rather than hinder is being strafed by a VTOL.
>>32499708I am not the same anon was just saying what you said was shit and could not be compared
>>32499782You realize that snipers basically wear the same gear as everyone else right? And the fact we wanted her to be more of Markswoman over a pure sniper also?
>>32499782This is cyberpunk man. Where idol firms buy vtol aircraft.Way more likely and one usually uses air support to kill rear support
>>32499809oops wrong quote meant for >>32499772>The sniper can go with light armor.
>>32499785Well retorted, Anon. You sure explained why I was wro- Oh, hold on.You didn't.Make a point or fuck off.
>>32499693Cole and Morgan perform the course again, and this time their time is a bit more acceptable. Four minutes to finish, but at least it was something.>All idols have gained Heavy Armor 1!>Julie has gained Heavy Armor 2!"All right girls, I think we can call it a day here." You say, and turn to the Zenith idols. "Kaleidoscope, Heartlancer, Shadowblade, you three did a good job too. I look forward to working with you in the future.""Thanks!" Heartlancer grins. Shadowblade only nods silently while Kaleidoscope avoids making eye contact with you. The three Zenith idols then leave."All right, girls, you should all get some rest." You say, turning to your own idols. "Training is done for the day."There's a weak cheer among your girls as they begin to disperse.Suddenly, your phone pings as it receives a message from Jenner, telling you to meet her right away. However, at the same time, Julie approaches you."Producer, can we talk real fast?">Sure>Actually I need to see Jenner.>Other
>>32499861>SureI'm nervous as to what she has to say.
>>32499861>>Sure but make it abit quickWalk and talk. Walk and talk. Get to jenner while talking.
>>32499861>OtherWalk and talk, babe. Daddy's got a meeting with mom upstairs.
>>32499861>Sure>I need to see Jenner.Walk and talk. At this point it should just be policy.
>>32499882>>32499883talk fast, move quick
>>32499861Do both (tell Julie to come with you while going to Jenner).
>>32499882>>32499888Get out of my head, Charleses.
>>32499907Are you sure you're not in mine?
>>32499926Obviously, I'm a solipist.
Wait is killing me.
>>32499861>Talk to me while we walk. Jenner asked to see me
>>32499861>>SureI think an Idol delay is understandable that and Julie doesn't really ask for much so this has to be pretty important.
>>32499959Me too, brother. Me too.
>>32499861"Sure thing, Julie." You say, motioning for you follow you. "What's up.""Well, um, I'm pretty sure this is gonna sound selfish." Julie frowns as she paces behind you. "But, if... I mean when you go out hunting for that idol killer, can you put me on the team?""Any particular reason why?" You raise an eyebrow."It's just.... I can't sit by while sick freaks like that are running around. They need to face justice!" Julie sighs. "Believe me, I've tracked down my fair share of killers in the Tombs...""And by tracked down...""I gave em a taste of their own medicine, if you know what I mean."You pause for a second. While you were sure Julie was more than capable of handling yourself, you weren't sure how she'd react to a situation like this. It seemed she was very emotionally invested. Plus, she was a good bodyguard. You really weren't sure what to do with her.>Okay, I'll let you hunt the killer.>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.>Other
>>32500381>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.I understand your feeling on this but I need someone capable around Rin when she's out of the office. Which is why I picked you for it.

>>32500381>>Other"Julie, we are still trying to get some clues. We don't have much to go on yet. I am keeping you on bodyguard duty until we get some leads. Once that happens, we will have this discussion again. I have concerns about your emotional investment, but I think you can be helpful in shutting this bastard down once we find him. "
>>32500381>Okay, I'll let you hunt the killer.Sure. Kill 'em dead.
>>32500381>>Okay, I'll let you hunt the killer.
>>32500381>>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail for now.Make note of her bodyguarding talents, but when it comes time to bring the hammer down, it'd be a different story.
Wait.Rin's granddad is here. Rin should no longer be commuting.Do we still need the commute bodyguard?

>>32500461She still needs to actually do idoling, you know.
>>32500381>>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.let her down gently
>>32500381>>Okay, I'll let you hunt the killer.We'll need to find someone else to take over then.
>>32500381>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.Look there's reason why we put her and Rochelle on this. Can we not make changes because she asked all nice like.
>>32500381>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.her job is more important than her wants and desireswe're not going to let her compromise security and the safety of a fellow idol just to go be selfish
>>32500475That reminds me, what do our idols actually do while not on the big missions? I assume both combat/performance have daily practice regimens in their specific areas of expertise but that's as far as my imagination takes me.
>>32500520>her job is more important than her wants and desiresWants and desires have actually gotten us good results. Like the whole thing with rochelle and the engineers.Putting Julie on the case can make a pretty big difference.
>>32500381>>Denied. You're still on bodyguard detail.Yep, selfish

>>32500381"Okay, I'll make sure you're on the hunting team, then." You nod. "But I want to make this clear. You be careful out there, and you listen to what your team leader, whether it be Rochelle or Cole, says. You're not in the Tombs anymore, so you play by my rules. Is that clear?""Crystal." Julie nods."Good." You nod as you finally arrive at Jenner's desk. "Okay Jenner, what's up?""There's been the fourth victim." She says sadly as she turns on her monitor.You heart stops when you see the picture plastered on the screen. It was Lila from Horizon Entertainment, lying in a back alley literally cut to pieces. You saw some sick shit back in the day, and you've seen scenes worse than this, but it ranked pretty damn high."We're going to get this bastard, aren't we?" Julie seethes."Yeah, yeah we will." You feel a cold fury burning in your heart.>And that's it for tonight! Next thread will be next week as usual. Don't forget Gundam Build Fighters on Fridays, as well. Also, make sure not to miss my assassin oneshot on Sunday!
>>32500573Thanks for the run, Merc.

>>32500573Would this have changed if we forgone the training and instead went on the hunt instead...
>>32500573>Lilawhatever Julie could do to this sick bastard would be too merciful.
Which one was Lila?
>>32501281no fucking clue anon
>>32501281It was one of the girls we captured and returned to horizon
>>32501632Aw shit. Not those girls.Fuck, that killer is going down.
>>32501281The friendly rookie we first took down.The one who thanked us for treating them well and for returning them to Horizon.
>>32501632Well I'm kind of wondering on Horizon's policy's also we need to have some firearm/coordination training soon as well
>>32501881What kind of policy.And with the length in between our joint training sessions, not soon.
>>32502138Well since one of their own is killed they might want revenge. We might collide with them during our investigation on the killer.Saturday is a long way away
