Welcome to Academy City. The time is just afternoon, the weather is pleasant, and the date is August 18.You are Kyril Torikov, ‘Level 2’ Telekinetic Child Error and you have just made a pretty big purchase. It was a small share at Kongou Aviation and it cost a cool four million JPY, tax included. You think had decided that if you were going to invest it was better to have a solid foundation for now. Add on to the fact that Asuka was supposedly well acquainted with the owner’s daughter and the potential benefits of insider trading were too tempting to pass up. That would be another thing to add to your rap sheep, if you had one. Still, as you were now a shareholder, albeit a rather small one, you were entitled to exactly one vote in matters regarding the company’s board of directors and had a cut of some of the company’s income. It was a very small cut but you were high school student. Making that kind of money without lifting a finger was pretty nice. If things stayed as they were you might make the money back in a couple of months.You were free this afternoon though. At 1800 you had to report in for some thug recruiter or something. The reason for this was that Nunotaba needed your help as an inside man to introduce a virus to some facility related to the Level 6 Shift. That was the plan. Hopefully it won’t go to shit too fast.Still, you had an afternoon to go through. Further investment and the required research was certainly an option. That said you still had some work to do, and an investigation to complete. Apart from that it might also be nice to check in on Sparky, see how she’s feeling. However you certainly weren’t beholden to do any of the above if you really felt like it.>Go to work>Expand your financial portfolio>Check in on Sparky>Do something else (write-in)

You decided to head to work. It was nice to be able to navigate the junkyard with your own two feet again and Number 3 might have more interesting things for you to do today. If not, you might as well look through some of his paperwork. It may hold a clue as to who was after your boss’ life.Speaking of getting back on your feet, you wondered what Teacher was up to. He had promised kung fu lessons to you but was forced to leave the city. Thus you had to leave Academy City to be able to learn from him. You really couldn’t think of a valid reason to be allowed out of Academy City either, doubly so since you were an orphan, Child Error in common parlance. Wait, perhaps you could try for a spot on one of those school trips in early September? It was a long shot but it was something to think about. Academy City was not just your home. It was also your prison.With thoughts of a trips abroad floating about, you arrived at the junkyard. Number 3 is for once in a while actually slumped over a desk grumbling about paper work.“Afternoon,” you greeted him.“Kyril, just the guy I need,” he looked up in relief, “I have so much to do today.”“Well that’s why I’m here.”“You’re just here to pay off the scooter,” he pointed out and got out of his chair, “Anyway, I have stuff that needs moving and I’m sure you’re cheaper than a certified crane operator. Then there’s a bunch of piping that needs to be cut down to size and I trust you enough with the power tools for that. Or if you were feeling merciful you could just do my paperwork for me.”He led you out back towards the workshop area. There were a stack of pipes that were cut down to length of one and a half or two palms. You were sure Number 3 wouldn’t mind if you made some for yourself though. That said the lifting could probably give you an excuse to test if your powers had grown or not.>Work the shop>Get lifting>Paperwork
>>32508595Took you long enough.
>>32508727I'm trying to figure out exactly why this choice matter at all. I guess I'll just post my guesses as to what the differences between the choices are.>>Work the shopWe get free pipes? I don't even know why we'd want them. Do we want them?>>Get liftingTK shenanigans>>Paperwork#3 likes us a bit more. Might be able to pull favors easier or something later on.
>>32509103Last time we worked the shop, we were able to scrap together a drill for the fight club job. I don't think there's anything we needed shop access for this time, but it could have been an option.
You honestly had no idea what benefit you could come out from the pipes since it looked like tedious work. The paperwork was also boring, given your first hand experience with it, and you could probably look through Number 3’s records another time though you’d need a good excuse to. Thus you chose to do some heavy lifting. You noticed that your powers had gotten a little stronger and now it was time to test that theory.“Alright, here’s the crane, there’s plenty of space so you probably can’t muck it up too bad,” Number 3 started.You were standing before a pile of metallic cubes that lay strewn about in a lot. They were about waist height and looked quite heavy. Looks like they came out the ass end of a compressor and needed to be move deeper in to the junkyard where such things were neatly piled up. There was also a crane.“How heavy are these things?”“I’m not too sure, at least a hundred kg I’d reckon, maybe more?”Nodding silently you lifted up one of the cubes. It wasn’t effortless, requiring some concentration on your part but it Number 3 was right then your Ability had gotten stronger. You threw it over to the designated area with an exaggerated arm motion.“Oh right,” your boss smiled, “I keep forgetting you can just TK that stuff.”“I don’t think I was this powerful though,” you replied.“Well if you want to experiment then knock yourself out, as long as the stuff gets moved before the day’s out. I’ll get you a more precise measurement of the cubes in a bit.”[1/2]
>>32509731Giving you a pat on the back, Number 3 returned to the office to get his paperwork squared away as you started moving the junk. They were certainly heavy and you weren’t able to lift them off the ground with your own hands. You were able to push them somewhat though. You had to stack them with your power, and once you had two of them together you were straining to lift and move them. It was easier to just throw them one by one, you figured.>Add more weight>Throw them harder>Check fine control>Just get the work done
>>32509749>>Check fine control
>>32509731>at least a hundred kgBaller. That's waaaaay heavier than most people in Raildex. We'd be able to fling the majority of this population with ease.>>32509749>Check fine control
>>32509749>Check fine control
>>32509749>Add more weightI can't wait to git gud enough to crush cars and shit
>>32509749>add more weight
Looks like you're checking your fine control. Roll 1d20. There is no counter roll.
Rolled 16>>32510162its the mind!
>>32510198I snickered. You offering...is inadequate.
>>32510198Wrong field mate.>>32510225>>32510225Looks like a double 16 then.
A little experiment in adding more weight yielded the upper limit of your power. You apparently couldn’t handle more than two of the metal blocks at once. Lacking other sufficiently quantifiable weights, you couldn’t determine the exact upper limit but two hundred kilograms was plenty. It seemed that your ability to lift weight was inversely proportional to how fast you could move them. That said your control was still as the same regardless of how much you had on your plate. It was easy to spin them around and manipulate individual cubes with a good degree of control whilst in mid air. You also got to juggling them even. Balancing the corner of one on the tip of your index was child’s play, as was spinning it on the very same finger. Handling two separate cubes were still beyond you though.It didn’t take long for you to finish though and Number 3 got back to you on the mass of the cubes. They weighed between 100 to 120 kilograms and your boss was kind enough to get you smaller quantifiable measures to grasp your upper limit of 232.44 kg of lift. Lift was a bit misleading though, since you were just applying a field of force in one direction. Anything above that and you wouldn’t exert enough force to move an object heavier than your upper limit.The time is now nearing 1800, the weather is cooling, and the date remains unchanged.With your work hours done, you gathered up with Sagara and Tadakuni at your place before you headed out to meet the contact. Before you left, did you take your gun with you?>Y>N
>>32511136>Yshit might get real tonight....
>>32511136>232.44 kgSo unless I just went retarded, that's 2280.2364N of force.A field of 2200 Newtons...iirc, that's something like 4 times as much as a .22 rifle. We should be able to stop bullets with that.
>>32511325And here I was thinking I'd have to do calculations for Newtons on my own. Thank you dear anon.
>>32511380Really it'd have to be a bit stronger than that to lift the weight since that's the force gravity is putting on it and we're beating it.
>>32511136>YAlso can we try to float in a direction? No way Kyril is 232.44kg.
>>32511622gotta burn that wheelchair flab off
>>32511776A TK augmented workout might result in finer control. LIfting with both physical power and TK, running while quickly pushing off the ground with TK, and aerial aerobics could all help Kyril get fit and get a read on his power.
>>32511971He could lift whenever he wanted. No weights? No problem, just try to lift his hands against a force equivalent to whatever it is he usually lifts.
>>32512010Use his own TK as a set of weights? Brilliant!
The meeting was in one of the shadier districts so you thought a little .45 insurance was just what the doctor ordered. Stuffing the gun in your jacket, you promptly left. You thought it might be worthwhile to invest in a holster, and maybe an airsoft gun.“You the ones Nunotaba suggested?” the recruiter asked.“That’s us,” you spoke for the three of you.The recruiter looked thuggish, like, if you looked like a thug then he was even more so. It must have been his skinhead accentuated with thick eyebrows with a square set forehead and jaw. He just gave you once over, merely nodding before turning his eyes on your friends.“No, they’re definitely no good,” he finally said, “You though, you can go through.”He gestured you over to the entrance to a warehouse behind him.“What? Why?” you asked.“You got good eyes and a gun,” the recruiter spoke, “Those two are baby-faced kids who’re just looking to bust in to the big leagues. You though, you’re the real deal.”“What’s that supposed to mean?” Sagara could act tough when he tried.“Look, kid, I don’t know about you but this isn’t some game we’re playing. Even if it is we’re playing for keeps, you dig?”Yeah Nunotaba was right. These guys were a step up from normal thugs if you were reading him right. Killing was part of the job, if not required. You weren’t sure how your friends were going to deal with that, or the fact that you have killed. It was times like these you could use Kyousuke’s connections.“Just give me one good reason why I should let you two in.”>Give him a reason (write-in affects outcome)>Call up Kyousuke (leave it to /tg/ dice)>Go on alone>Refuse
>>32512339>>Give him a reason (write-in affects outcome)We are a team, these guys have skills I need. Yes, I may be blooded but even that does not mean everything. I suck at write-ins.
>>32512339I'm not leaving this solely up to the dice if I can help it.>Give him a reason (write-in affects outcome)"They look innocent but that ends at the surface. Misdirection is terribly useful in our line of work. The shit these two have gotten away with..."
So here we are at that awkward time where nobody knows what the fuck to say and we all wait for the other guys to do write-ins.
>>32512339>Give him a reason (write-in affects outcome)"Every single body counts in itself. Even though they are just trying to break into the big leagues as you say at least it would be another body between us and possibly getting shot."
>>32512561There's always the dice.
>>32512339>Give him a reason (write-in affects outcome)Look, we are a team. We have done jobs together in the past and I asure you they don't just do the job, they do it well.
>>32512339>Give him a reason"Yeah, they're not killers. But they have different skills, and approach problems in different ways. If we all jumped straight to "shoot it in the fucking face" we wouldn't be nearly as good a team."
>>32512699This is a security job. We're supposed to shoot it in the fucking face.Well, it's not really a security job since we're just using that as a pretext to get in, but that's the basis they're judging us on.
Sounds like what we are going to go for is something like."They have other skills such as being great at Recon work. Not only that but at least it would be another body in case we need it."
>>32512339Outline their skills and how they will be useful
>>32512743And security doesn't entail going full murderhobo on anything that looks suspicious. Anyone who actually worked security would know that much.
>>32512784It does in AC.
We really shouldn't be talking about killing right now. That confrontation can wait.
>>32512743Yeah this. Using the other skill approach doesn't work all that well. Unless we bring up we have seen one of them being really good at sneaking up on people. So we could use them as hidden muscle but then that would be the same as saying there is the possibility they want to sneak in.
>>32512795Yeah got to remember we are in the dark side here. So if someone is fucking around a area we are guarding they most likely want them shot and their body dumped.
>>32512784These guys are yakuza.
“We’re a team,” you said, “We work together, even if they may be cleaner than I am.”“Well fuck your team buddy,” he replied, “Maybe they’re good, maybe not but ‘maybes’ just don’t cut it here.”“At least try, it’s one more warm body right?” you argued.“More like another dead body,” he sighed, “Look, whatever, you three go in but we’ll have to test you, if they don’t make the cut then it’s off with your heads. How does that sound?”You had a pretty good hunch that this ‘test’ involved killing in cold blood and if they couldn’t do it then they were goners. They probably didn’t expect this kind of stuff when they signed on with you. You looked to your two friends.“I’d rather keep my head then, sorry boss,” Tadakuni bowed out.“Figured it’d be the sneak.”“Alright, I’m in,” Sagara gave his answer, “Where ever he goes, I go. We watch each other’s backs.”Not to say Tadakuni was a bad guy but you never really did expect him to kill for you. It wasn’t something you just up and decided to do. A part of you wasn’t surprised at Sagara’s decision.“Watch each other’s backs in your own damn time, now get in,” the recruiter grumbled, “I swear this is the last time we take refs from that Nunotaba chick.”The door slammed shut behind you and the recruiter led you to a shooting range. The far side had paper targets, black silhouettes on white. A press of the buttons and the targets turned around. The other side had men strapped to them, gagged, blindfolded and fully conscious.“We were just going to check your aim but might as well do double duty while we’re at it,” he handed you each a pistol, “Ever heard of the Mozambique drill?”Neither of you did.“Two shots in the chest, one in the head, two if you’re good, get to it.”[1/2]
>>32513497You stepped up to the line. It wasn’t too far out to the target and the squirming wasn’t making it too hard to aim either. As you pulled the trigger, the predominant feeling was,>You felt sorry for Sagara>You felt sorry for the target>The gun’s recoil>Glee>A feeling so complicated? (write-in)
>>32513523>The gun’s recoilKnowing how the gun will move is essential for placing shots quickly.
>>32513523>The gun’s recoilJust shooting a gun. Nothing more.
>>32513523>The gun’s recoil
>>32513523>A feeling so complicatedA lack of any particular feeling. There's a certain point where you lose your feeling of horror at the whole process: there's no anger, no regret, no excitement. Shooting, even killing, is a reflex. You don't even feel the recoil anymore.
>>32513523>The gun's recoil
You'd think Tadakuni would be all for increasing his skills.
>>32515041Some people don't like the risk of losing their head. Sagara is actually kind of crazy to agree.
>>32515041Most people don't want to get dragged into this kind of stuff. Even though he's rough he probably doesn't want that kind of life. Sagara probably said yeah without knowing completely what he was getting into. Hope we don't creep him out too much with out easy we can kill.
You had made peace with killing already. That was why when you pulled the trigger you were bereft of any particular feeling. The deed had lost its horror, its excitement. Thus the only thing you did feel was purely mechanical. The gun’s recoil pushed the barrel up a tiny notch, well within acceptable limits. It was the third shot that needed correction to your aim to ensure the target was hit. Teacher had told you that when in doubt, double check. That was the fourth shot that hit the mark. Your drill completed, you secured the weapon and handed it back to the recruiter.“Now that’s what I like to see,” he complimented, “Cool as a cucumber.”Sagara took his turn and though his aim wasn’t bad you could tell he was only barely holding it together.“Alright you pass,” he snorted, “Barely. Congratulations.”Leading you deeper in to the warehouse, you were finally assembled in what looked like an old office with a screen. The screened was black with white “Sound Only” text written on it, a conference call.“Slow Azai,” a female voice spoke.“Sorry ma’am, new recruits had to do the screening,” he was awfully polite now.“I suppose that could not be helped then, I trust they are prepared.”“Yes ma’am.”“Good, I have a need for a cleanup crew tonight. You will head out right away.”With another, “yes ma’am,” the three of you hopped in to a black van parked on the premises and departed for the location.[1/3]
>>32515150The time is now night, the weather is stuffy, and the date remains unchanged.The scene when you had arrived was that of a bunch of girls, some looked your age, standing over a bunch of suits. Most of them were dead and your job was to make sure they stayed down.“Keep your head down and don’t hit on the girls,” Azai instructed.You did manage to sneak a glance but you didn’t put much attention to it and did as you were told and so did Sagara. They were probably the “bigger fish” that Nunotaba had described though you weren’t expecting them to be your age. Then again an Ability User had many advantages that a normal person didn’t so it shouldn’t have been surprising that you’d find them doing some dirty work. If you thought yourself special in the past, now you didn’t. Idly you wondered what their Abilities were, if they had any. It’d take a special kind of kid to be Level 0 and hang with this crowd.The girls left quickly enough and work was mostly silent thereafter. Bagging them up was easy when you didn’t need to touch them and another crew were going to scrub the place clean later so that was all you needed to do for tonight.“Not bad for a few hours work huh?” Azai had handed you a pretty big stack of cash, “Tomorrow’s another big job. Show up at warehouse by 1800 or we leave without you.”You gave a nod and left with Sagara.“That wasn’t what I signed up for,” he finally said.He had been silent the whole time, working mechanically.[2/3]
>>32515170“Was this what happened with Big Spider?” he asked.You nodded glumly.“Shit man,” he grabbed his head, “I thought you were just dumped or something. Fuck this heavy shit.”Well it wasn’t easy for you to think of something to say either. You were lucky Asuka did when you killed a man for the first time. Unfortunately you weren’t Asuka either so you’d have to settle for some,>Alcohol>A good night sleep>A heart to heart talk>Something else? (write-in)

>>32515191>AlcoholI am starting to think it would have been better to do this solo. Then again if we're going to continue on the criminal's path the people following Kyril need to get familiar with death or at least out of the area when it happens.

>>32515239Yeah they will have to get used to this possibility. Kyril himself knows he could die at any moment but I don't think it's really sunk into his friends yet nor the idea that they might have to kill.
You settled in his dorm room for a change. Surely enough he had some alcohol stashed away so while he busied himself in the bathroom you poured both of you a glass. You pretended to not notice the coughing and hacking. Sagara came out with a washed face and a new shirt. He took the offered drink without a word and gulped it down without a care before flopping down on his bed.“Shit man,” he drawled.Alcohol worked faster on him than it did you.“How’d you do it man?” Sagara finally asked.“Do what?”“Just this, everything man.”He was waving his arms as he lay back.“I focused on the job,” you replied, “It’s not for everyone I guess?”“Hell naw. Tadakuni had the right idea,” he sighed, “Wish backed out like he did but.”“It’s cool. I knew you had my back. Thanks by the way.”“Yeah we’re brothers to the end,” he lifted his glass.You topped it up again.“I have your back too, whatever you choose,” you declared, “You don’t have to go back if you don’t want to.”He snorted.“And leave you alone again?” he scoffed at the notion, “What else are you keeping me safe from?”Well there was the issue with the magicians but you weren’t sure it was the right time for that. With Sagara drunk he’d be inclined to dismiss it tomorrow morning as bullshit. It wasn’t like the knowledge was particularly useful or relevant in this case so far. Maybe some other day.“Anyway can you do me a favour tonight?” he asked.“Sure.”“Stay the night.”“Let me just grab a book then.”>Minds, Memories, and Multitasking>Art of Approximation

The time is now morning once again, the weather is cloudy, and the date is August 19.You honestly wished you had more sleep but it looked like Sagara was feeling better now, if only a bit more sombre. Today, at 1800, you had an appointment with Azai. You were finally going to get in to the whole security gig like you were originally intent on. The killing and late night work was a bit needless you thought, especially since you dragged Sagara off in to it. So until then you were once again free.You returned to your room for some breakfast. As well as discovering that some of your eggs had gone bad, you also got some mail. There was an envelope from Kongou Aviation, thanking you for your investment as well as a pair of complimentary coupons that offered a one-time discount for airplane tickets on a designated carrier that had ties with Kongou Aviation. Score! Speaking of travel, if you had the time, maybe you could ask your school about the field trips in September and how to get in on that if you wanted to go see Teacher. Other mail that you had received was also from Nunotaba and it was 100% more electronic. She had wanted to meet up, no doubt for job related reasons, but she didn’t really give a time so you assumed it was whenever you were free. Your fallback was of course to go to work, sleep in, do more reading or work out.>Hit up Nunotaba>Go to school>Go to work>Stay home, sleep in, read a book and/or get fit

Well it was probably wise to hit up Nunotaba first. The job was the most important thing right now and you wanted to focus on it, like you had told Sagara last night. Speaking of which, Sagara was still sleeping soundly when you woke him up but it didn’t take too much effort to get your ramblers rambling. Thankfully everyone save Sagara had had breakfast already. You bought him some sandwich at a convenience store.“So how was last night?” Tadakuni asked, “You guys came back so late I was already asleep.”“Not fun,” Sagara whined, “can we not talk about it?”“That bad huh?” Tadakuni confirmed, “Right well I suppose we should go see Nunotaba then huh?”“I’m really curious though,” Kyousuke piped up.“We’ll tell you later,” you replied.“Can we please get off the topic already?”“Alright,” Kyousuke shrugged, “Speaking of the job I got some neat maps and stuff, you aren’t getting lost in there anymore.”“That sounds like a bit of good news then,” you told him.Your arrival at Nunotaba’s was swift. Asuka was also already present. It looked they had just finished breakfast. Of course as you sat down you met her eyes as you both coincidentally spoke simultaneously.“We may have a problem.” “We have a small problem.”Episode 41 End.

You are Shirai Kuroko, Level 4 Teleporter, roommate and one true love of Misaka Mikoto onee-sama. Her disappearance from the dormitory last night did not go unnoticed. You had covered for her, as you always had, but there was so much shower time recordings could do. Eventually the Esteemed Dorm Mother would get suspicious. Still that was not the problem. The problem was that your beloved onee-sama was troubled by something yet she was reluctant to ask for your help. You suppose that is one of her faults, childish taste aside, you’d have to live with.Still she could be in all kinds of danger and trouble right about now. You knew full well that onee-sama tended to blow away her problem with brute force but this could very well be a problem that she could not. Given that she was still troubled this was a likely possibility. This surely fell within your jurisdiction, not only as a good kohai that supports her sempai, but also as a member of Judgement. Yes, that’s it. Now, since you were alone, in your room, you supposed that there was nothing wrong if you found some clues as you were cleaning through now would it? The question was now where would onee-sama put such questionable things if she had any?>Her bear perhaps?>Definitely the closet!

>>32518497We all know that it's in the bear because meta. Meta also tells us that Kuroko finding it means Touma doesn't....Unless things have already been derailed bad enough that he's never going to go to the dorm...
>>32518650Plot finds a way. Failing that the man with the plan will do something.
>>32518650Did you think it would be so simple? Your meta gaming shall not avail you here.
>>32518650I picked bear because I kinda hope that Accel murders Biribiri and a massive in-universe shitstorm ignites.
>>32518693>MassiveReally wouldn't change anything. Alester already planned for her to die. Just touma poping up saved her.
>>32518693Too bad Accels power is pretty much a hard counter to our own.
Rolled 2A tie? Right, now to see which prewritten part I have to trash.1. Bear2. Closet
It was definitely not in the bear. Kirugumar wasn’t looking any different from normal and onee-sama had definitely not been acting suspiciously around it at all. Then it must definitely be in the closet. There were many sayings related to the closet after all, and it was your job, your duty to find out what it was. All for the benefit of onee-sama of course. There were no inherently impure thoughts or ulterior motives to your actions at all.Your guess was spot on. Surely one such as yourself who knew your onee-sama so intimately could not possibly have guessed any different. It seemed to be a thick sheaf of papers with the words, “Project Radio Noise,” on the front. You’re not sure what that was supposed to do with onee-sama’s problem but looks could be deceiving. It looked like a research paper, given its thickness so you opened up to the first page, hoping to find an abstract. Instead you found a signed note.“Dear Ma5ter5park,“Here is a preview of my latest manuscript. I fear it may be my last so take care of yourself.“Signed,“Heart-Under-Blade”So she was friend to a mangaka then? Whatever secrets would this manuscript then yield? Perhaps it would shed some light on her recent behaviour. You turned the page.……You suppose this was why hid it in her closet then. To think that your onee-sama had such adult vices, you could not possibly throw this away, even if the rules demanded that you do so. However you need to know more about this hidden side of onee-sama. Perhaps this common hobby of yours could bring you closer.>Perform a physical search>Perform an internet search
>>32519240>>Perform an internet search
>>32519240>Perform an internet searchcheck her internet historyKurko becomes bi?
>>32519240So instead of getting mixed up in all of this, we get her interested in yaoi.I'm not certain if this a better outcome or not, honestly.
>>32519240>Perform a physical search>>32519311>Kurko becomes bi?And still annoyed by het.
trying to come up with a good archive description for the thread.."tfw recoil"?
>>32519721Kyril fires a gun, Sagara weeps, We may have a problem.
Information was key in a case like this and if these names, aliases, that both onee-sama and the author went by then surely you could look in to it. Thus you required an expert in such matters. You arrived in Judgement Branch Office 177 in time to see Uiharu ready to sign off for the day. No such luck for her though as you strong-armed her in to your quest for answers. To your surprise it seemed that she was no stranger to the mangaka.“Oh if you’re talking about Heart-Under-Blade-sensei then you must be talking about her manga,” Uiharu exclaimed.She had a tab open on some online manga. You snorted in disdain until she started scrolling through the scanned volume. It was surprising to say the least, that there would be porn starring that thuggish scoundrel. His friends were also featured, you recognised three of them. It was, erotic, enough to arouse even you but then again nothing ever quite compared to Misaka Mikoto onee-sama. Many people thought you were a lesbian but they were wrong. You just declared yourself incapable of loving anything else but your onee-sama. Besides you thought it rather disturbing that Uiharu, as well as your onee-sama, found pleasure in this. Truly it was a fearsome thing that needed to be destroyed.You must hurry on your way to eradicate this root of corruption, stop it at the very source itself.>We shall go after the source of inspiration>We shall strike against the artist herself
>>32519815>>We shall strike against the artist herself
>>32519815>We shall strike against the artist herself
>>32519815>We shall strike against the artist herselfClearly the artist must be censured. Lest she profane the minds of more ladies.
>>32519721worst job interview ever?
>>32519917best job interview ever.
So how screwed is the world without the Railgun?
>>32520213Not at all in-verse. Out of verse and Canon wise the rails would be gone. So gone.
>>32515150Why can I just hear Sagara going "Oh, fuck." here.
Striking at the source itself was vital. It may be too late now but surely you could halt it given a good enough reason. You were Judgement after all and it was your duty to censor this kind of corruption before it profanes even more minds. This, you Shirai Kuroko solemnly swore. Uiharu’s protests at your resolve were ignored as you forced her to look up the location of the artist.Your passage was swift, and travel time was negligible when you were a teleporter. It didn’t take long for you to come across the source herself. Dressed in Gothic Lolita fashion, she sat in her chair. Behind her multiple screens shone brightly, nearly blinding you with the horrific displays of homoerotic debauchery you had laid eyes upon.“So, it has come to this,” she spoke.“Judgement, ですの!”“Silly girl, there is no one who can stop me. Even The Queen, your Queen, is within my grasp, enthralled.”“I will stop your corruption of minds both young and old if it’s the last thing I do.”“It is fascinating isn’t it,” she got up, “How easily it is to control hearts and minds with simple art. How did you think I knew of your arrival?”“No.”“Yes,” she smiled deviously, “Her name was Uiharu was it? Even such a charming girl like herself was easily swayed. Today it is but Academy City, but tomorrow I shall have the world.”“Not if I stop you from homologating villain.”“What does my defeat matter? I am not some manga villain. Did you seriously think I would explain my masterstroke if there were even the slightest possibility that you could affect the outcome? I uploaded the final volume 35 minutes ago.”“NO!”“GAZE UPON MY WORKS YE MIGHTY AND DESPAIR!”[1/2]
>>32520637Interlude end. Schedule is looking busy, mind the twitter chaps.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorLoli tipping. The situation is slightly sticky. Can someone help me with my math? When writefag and /tg/ meet, the story begins.I may collapse soon but questions are welcomed.
>>32520662Well fuck me. here's the second partYou were shocked out of your reverie, quite literally.“Kuroko let me go,” onee-sama’s voice carried across, “I have an appointment today!”Numbly you let her go. Your eyes brows were twitching as she left the room again. Her disappearance from the dormitory last night did not go unnoticed. You had covered for her, as you always had, but there was so much shower time recordings could do. Eventually the Esteemed Dorm Mother would get suspicious. Still that was not the problem. The problem was that your beloved onee-sama was troubled by something yet she was reluctant to ask for your help. You suppose that is one of her faults, childish taste aside, you’d have to live with.
>>32520662thanks for runningarchivedI wonder how Asuka and Nunotaba fucked it up?
>>32520716did I say archived? cuz I meant in one hour (last time archive more than one quest in the same day, EPQ usually archives pretty quick)
>>32520662Was I right about Sagara pretty much thinking?>>32520288Also just to ask on a how bad is this problem 1-10 scale 1 being a minor cold and 10 being shitting out your intestines.
>>32520781I can seriously see it.As for the problem I'd say it rates plothook/10.
>>32520842>Plothook/tenThe worst kind.
>>32520842Kind of wondering this. Where would Kyril cap off level wise? 3? 4?
>>32520929When I started I was hoping we'd go all the way to Level 5 and claim the mysterious 6th spot but given the time frame it might take me like twenty real life years and at least a thousand threads to make that happen. The soft cap is Level 3 for now.
>>32521015>Level 5 KyrilThis explains way more shit then it should. The avoiding the spot light. The Misaki knowing him.
>>32521015I'm willing to push it to the limit if you are Bored...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D-QD_HIfjA
>>32521015what would a level 5 Kyril be capable of ?
>>32521015Thinking on it I can't really imagine Kyril a higher esper rank then Asuka. Or what a level 5 Telekinetic would do.
>>32520762aaaand now its archived
>>32521100Probably ripping the atomic structure of an object apart while leaving it's field around it. Also known as making an invisible object. He could probably also thinking on it gib the atomic structure of something. We know level 5 Awaki could do something like Thors world trick. So things would get pretty crazy.
>>32521067My body is not ready.>>32521100>>32521105For one the force he could exert would make the phrase "rock your world" quite literal. And probably sub-atomic shenanigans.
>>32521197Force fields should be possible I think. I can't remember the logic but by fucking with some sub-atomics you could create a pretty much nuke proof wall. That can't actually be broken.
>level 5We got this guys. One week we are doing low level thug runs, the next...
>>32521308If we did ever hit level 5 we wouldn't need to do runs. That is getting paid a millions USD a year by academy city tier right there.
>>32521308Gentlemen, what can we expedite the rise to level 5?Egg of Columbus with an Ostrich egg?IRL QWOP with TK?
>>32521418Probably not. Only way I could see is spending more time reading books which is unlikely. Or getting AC themselves to give us budget. Takes a long ass time to go from 2 to 4 let alone 5.
>>32521470Accelerators power is literally the perfect counter to our power.Next.
>>32521470I don't think suicide will yield the desired results anon...
Powers grow by straining yourself and getting in tough fights right? As well as breakthroughs on your outlook right? So we up our encounter rate and figure out the nature of our power.
>>32521526>As well as breakthroughs on your outlook right? I hope Kyril's new found casual attitude towards murder is a step in the right direction
>>32521485Pretty much this. We would need magic to hurt him.In theory though we could stop him at level 5 from killing us. Compress the Air around us into sheets at an atomic level. His base form can't reach too deep into that so assuming we move fast enough he shouldn't be able to hit us. Though we would die of lack of air eventually. Winged Accel would just rape us anyway by going though it.
>>32521015Right now you effectively have it set up so that reading a book for 1 hour gives us 1xp. The three upgrades available were +force (20xp), +manip. point (20xp), and +precision (15xp). The only difference between this and regular xp systems is that we pre-spend the xp as we get it by retroactively deciding what book it was we read.As far as I can see, you've made the same mistake as BFQ. You tied skill progression to "sit around and read/study and miss out on interesting quest things and plot hooks". Yeah, it's probably realistic at lower levels where abilities are rather limited that this kind of studying would give the best results, but you don't have to do it once we actually manage to complete these books we have. Don't just pile bigger longer books on Kyril. Sure, he can have a new stack for nightly/downtime reading in addition to his regular activities, but it needs to not be the main show in regards to progression.If I were you, I would set up some broad stats or perks that are relevant to TK. Things like Force, Precision, Additional 'Hand', 'Hand' Size, Range, etc. And then some perks that show some specialization or neat tricks like shields, flight, increasing force by applying it in bursts instead of sustained, particle shenanigans( lv4 can mostly do it), that thing Unabara does, and whatever else really.Once you have those, start putting xp into the relevant stats every time we do something. Fights, studying, dicking around with TK, etc
