PREVIOUS EPISODES: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost+BustersLAST EPISODE: You caught up with your sister who has been having some tough times.- - -Time to bust some yurei and yokai heads.Your back has been bandaged up and the woulds have been stitched up and sealed with medical epoxy.You've gotten all the accouterments that you think you'll need, earplugs and tinted spectra-goggles, specially insulated headbands that have posi-slime membranes and tinfoil, and a mini-airhorn. All the things a ghostbuster needs to keep their minds clear.You've also gotten a few 'low tech' weapons. Two aluminum baseball bats, and a collapsable police baton. They've been soaked in slime and Sachiko blessed them both.Sana is back at the Factory with schematics of the building that she got from online. She also has both Tobin's and Dr. Spengler's spirit guides, along with all of Kali and Rini's notes. There's only one bluetooth headset though.You've also got two full sets of football protective gear, slimed and blessed.They threatened Kaede, your sister, so the other GBs are letting you have first pick of equipment. There's also the basic additional gear which includes, extra rope, bandages, carabiners, a surgical mask that's been treated like the rest of the equipment, and a utility knife."We'll probably find a lot of stuff inside there as well." Sato says."And we all agree." Akira says. "No mercy, no compromise. We accept surrenders only...everyone else...heheheh." Akira looks WAY too happy about the idea of 30 floors of senseless violence. He's even wearing his best pair of cowboy boots and a new hat."Your call Daisuke." Star says. "You want to go in light, or tanked up? I know Akira's planning on going in heavy."
>>33027920> Do you want to wear the football pads, or not?> Do you want to forego the earplugs in exchange for being the one in contact with Sana?> Baseball bat, baton, or will you be sticking with the pack being your primary weapon?> Anything else you want to bring, or do to prepare yourself, or the others, for the assault?
>>33027925So this session is based on your old quest? What did you run before this, just curious.Also, can Sachiko make any of that anti-ghost zone Sake? That shit would help.
>>33028047>Also, can Sachiko make any of that anti-ghost zone Sake?> Roll 1d20> Another question, do you want to bring Yurei and her Chyme with you? If so, will you be the one to carry it, or someone else?
Rolled 19>>33027925>>33028069>Football pads>No earplugs>Bat>Bring Yurei, star can carry the chyme.
>>33028266That isn't a critfail. Just a normal bad roll.
>>33028283Oops. guess i got a little carried away.
>>33028165You've got a bottle of sake from Sachiko. She's tried to recreate the ritual that Kayako's Mother did on the other stuff. She's pretty sure that she was able to pull it off.It does cause a dramatic drop in PKE emission and causes Yurei's Chyme to go on the fritz when it's nearby. So it's doing something, but not the exact same thing. Probably because Sachiko doesn't have the natural born power that Kayako's Mother had, and the fact that she's still living.> Who carries the bottle? Whomever does can't be carrying a melee weapon for fear of breaking it.
>>33028461Lets give it to Sato. I can't see the guy going at it in melee combat.
>>33028461Actually, I'm for Star getting it.She's not built for melee fighting anyway.
>>33028673Oh, and I just thought that, being the only woman on our field team, she's more likely to be targeted for possession and having the sake could help keep her protected.
Excuse me I've been out of the quest for a while, can someone refresh me where and what we are attacking?Not the base right? Did we reclaim the base?
>>33028673That's also a good option. In fact, it's better than what I put here>>33028521 now that I think about it. But let's also consider the gear we're taking. I put in my opinion with >>33028165. Obviously Star can't take the chyme if she's taking the sake, so that's up in the air
>>33028757This is an abandoned hotel/arcology complex in the Reject Zone that Kali and Rini were considering turning into a youkai/ghost enclave, where supernaturals could live isolated from humans and without causing problems.The only problem is, Oiwa and her minions are squatting on it right now, and we need to clean house.And they went after our little sister.No one hurts our little sister; we've already destroyed her life and her dreams, and we'll cross the streams if it means keeping her at least physically safe.
>>33028780Maybe Sato can carry the Chyme.
>>33028780>>33028861Akira should carry the chime. Yurei has a thing for him. I'd like to give it that a nudge.
>>33028810>and we'll cross the streams if it means keeping her at least physically safe.That would likely blow up the world if we did it outside of the Ghost Realm.Kali or whoever the vampire girl was said that "someone" would intervene, but I don't believe her. Gods and entire universes have been destroyed by such an undoing of the fabric of existence.Just be sure when we resort to that we don't do it in our universe.
>>33028861I second this
>>33028894This. Make Akira carry the chime.
>>33028699Okay so, Daisuke is going into the building with:Football pads and a cup, the earpiece that connects to Sana back at HQ, and a baseball bat.Star will be the Sake. She'll be hanging back, and have the headband protector and a surgical mask.Akira will be taking point, also geared with a baseball bat and football pads. He'll be foregoing the earplugs as well so he can react in combat swiftly.Sato will be keeping light, using the Baton, and keeping a clear head by use of earplugs, and he'll be carrying extra first aid, and camping/survival supplies. Can I make an assumption and say that he'll be carrying the Chyme, since you'll want to keep Yurei reasonably safe and Akira plans to be cracking heads?Also, Yurei can, and will, help, but she's got no combat ability. She can be invisible, lift and throw things with the capabilities of a 16-year-old girl, and she can move through walls.Is this set up acceptable?Also, to be precise, Mitsuko of the Dark Water, an Avatar of Oiwa, and a bunch of humanity loathing yurei and yokai are squatting there. Not Oiwa herself.
>>33028894Ffffffffudge. I forgot about that. Disregard >>33028965. I support this
>>33028999Akira carries chyme.
>>33028999I would have liked someone to be outside in the YOMI-1 with Super Slammer and the Proton Cannon, we're going to need the BIG guns for this one.
>>33028999I say that Sato should carry the Chyme, because we don't want the tank/Akira who is going to be knee-deep in the melee fighting to have a piece of electronics that could get damaged.
>>33028999Sounds good, Ghostmaster. Thanks for running, btw, was going to the library, but missing this quest isn't worth DLing my latest delicious Steam sale acquisitions.
>>33029079Wait, yeah, we really should use our big guns if we can. Anyone have any ideas on how?
>>33028999>Akira will be taking point, also geared with a baseball bat and football pads. He'll be foregoing the earplugs as well so he can react in combat swiftly.ugh changing this vote >>33029000 back to sato again
>>33029079>>33029137It's parked outside, if we can lure Oiwa and her minions out we could use it on her.
>>33029228CRAZY plan butbut since we're facing an avatar of the Big O herself, we could use the proton cannon to blast a hole big enough for the Yomi 1 to come/fire through. And if we're worried about the building collapsing on us, the Proton Cannon should have enough juice in it that the capture stream could hold up solid debris long enough for the Yomi to back the fuck out.
>>33029351Collapsing the building would defeat the purpose of using it as a future safe haven for good Youkai. In theory the proton cannon should have enough juice to lift the Yomi onto the roof of the building and down again, not that we have a reason to do that. Yet.
>>33029351Here's some further intel that you can get from some basic PKE scans and surveillance.The building is shaped like a giant square ring. There's a plaza/garden on the bottom. If you want to drive YOMI-1 in through the front doors, you can easily fit it into the plaza. Mitsuko, or at least the biggest PKE surge, is on the roof of the building. That's 30 floors above you.The building is structurally sound right now, you'd have to do some serious damage to it for the entire thing to collapse. Floor to floor and room to room is unknown.You know there's a medical center on the fifth floor.Floors 1-10 are all commercialFloors 11-15 are office spaceFloors 16-20 are hotelFloors 21-28 are condosFloor 29 is a movie theater multiplex.Floor 30 is akin to a convention center, so it's a bunch of large ballrooms/meeting rooms/large open spacesThe roof, where you believe Mitsuko is, is a full classical tea garden with a koi pond, rock, traditional, and bonsai garden, and a pagoda.The only way to access the roof is by the elevators, or the stairs on the 30th floor.
>>33029573I trust those elevators about as far as I can throw them. Stairs seem safer.
>>33029650It seems to be a fundamental rule for ghosts to not kill people in the elevators, at least new york.But hey, more exercise for us.>>33029573We're driving the Yomi into the plaza, she's not missing out on this.
>>33029650Agreed. We're going up… manually.http://youtu.be/7Ze-xQoEfOU
>>33029573Drive up the Yomi into the Plaza, blast it clear, and then disembark and go up on foot. Clear it building by building.If possible, we could have someone in the Yomi ready with the Trap and Cannon, then we ourselves simply use the capture stream to toss ghosts through the windows and into the Trap very easily.
Rolled 20>>33029573Man, can we drive up? Are teh stairs wide enough to let us do that?
>>33029697"We're going in hard Akira, so get ready to ram it." You say as you suit up."Okay!" Akira says as you're all suited up and ready. "Let's get this party started!""You are WAY too into this." Star says."You sure YOMI can take it?" Sato asks."It's just a large pair of glass doors, a short flight of stairs, and then bam...we're in the plaza." Akira says. "Easy.""Yeah." Star says as she pulls her safety belt tight. "Easy."You buckle up yourself.- - -"And that's how I was turned." Kali says."Wow," Sachiko says. "How did you escape?""Well, I was a poor captured Chinese circus girl forced to be a vampire sex slave, trapped in the French countryside...in 1911. So, my rescue came in the form of German sol...something wrong, kiddo?""I'm worried that my brother is doing something stupid." Kaede says. "He's always so stubborn, and when he gets that look in his eye...well the last time he almost destroyed a university.""I'm sure your bother will take a calm measured approach to this." Sachiko says. "After all, HE'S the reasonable one. Anyway, go back to World War One, Kali."- - -Three men in windbreakers are standing in the plaza. They all have small weaselly eyes, pinched faces and wispy-thin mustaches. They have small sickles on their belts, and old leaves and twigs blow around their feet, dancing in gusts of wind."Yeah. I haven't heard anything from them, Miss." One of them is talking into a phone. "Yeah, they probably chickened out. Typical mortals. I'll let you know if something changes."He hangs up and scowls. "I so loathe that multi-tailed bitch.""Tamamo-no-Mae's worse. Be glad that we just havre to deal with her 'sister,' and be even gladder that she's the one who has to deal with Her." The other man shudders. "Avatars are crazy.""You really think You-Know-Who is going to bring a new age of Shadows?" The last man says. "Because we should make some pl...what's that sound?"> Roll 3d20
>>33030080If only. Only way we're getting baby up there is if we lift her using the cannon.
Rolled 13, 13, 15 = 41>>33030178Let's go
Rolled 1, 3, 4 = 8>>33030178Now, I'm regretting we don't have a big enough sound system to blast Ride of the Valkyries.
Rolled 12, 14, 13 = 39>>33030227Wow... low rolls. I think that's first time I've seen them so low
>>33030080Not even with a twenty.Now everyone stop trying to cheat and let's commence the beat-em-up
Rolled 1, 20, 9 = 30>>33030227With enough slime and vibes we might've summoned the Valkyries themselves
Rolled 13, 11, 4 = 28>>33030178Blast the doors and drive through 'em. YEEHAW!
>>33030178>Chinese vampires in WW1I'd like to hear this story.
>>33030227Ghost roll already? Gonna be one of those nights.
>>33030223>>33030227CRASH! YOMI-1 bursts through the glass doors and into the building!VRRRRRMMMMM!!!YOMI-1 surges up the stairs in a bumpy ride, and clears it no problem.However, you all weren't ready for the large decorative fountain that's in the middle of the plaza."OH SHIT!" Akira yells and twists on the wheel.SCRREEEEE-BAM!YOMI-1 crashes into the large pillar that once had water artfully cascading over it."The fuck?!" One of the weasel men says.The door slides open and...> Two pissed off GBs charge with baseball bats> Proton streams/Stasis Blasts/Posi-Slime blast out from within> Other
>>33030450>OtherThe Proton Cannon pops up from up top, turns menacingly towards the weasels. While their attention is on the big proton cannon, the doors open and they get hit with EVERYTHING.
>>33030450I GOTTA QUAD LASER IT WILL AMAZE YAby which i mean fry 'em. Well if they're ghosts otherwise prolapse 'em.
>>33030450>The Proton Cannon pops up from up top, turns menacingly towards the weasels. >While their attention is on the big proton cannon, the doors open and they get hit with EVERYTHING.
>>33030487>>33030542Yes, these right here.
>>33030450The Proton Cannon pops up from up top, turns menacingly towards the weasels. While their attention is on the big proton cannon, the doors open and they get hit with EVERYTHING.
>>33030542There's a whirring noise and what looks like a stage-light covered in wiring rises up out of the roof of the car. It turns and points towards the three men."The hell is th-" One of the men says, right before he gets nailed in the chest with a proton stream."CHARGE!" Akira yells as you all tumble out the van, blasting.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 10, 13, 16 = 39>>33030956You were the one who hit the weasel men in the stomach He screams in pain. He may not be a ghost, but it hurts.Sato and Star unleash with proton streams at the guy you hit.Akira charges at another weasel guy with his baseball bat, screaming a war cry.
>>33030938>>33030956>>33031126Who you gonna call, motherfucker!
>>33031126Sato misses but Star hits.Akira hits his own guy right upside the head, apparently either the slime or the blessing worked because you see sparks fly when it connects.The weasel men all let out a long howl and suddenly the plaza in the center of a windstorm.The weasel men also grab their sickles.> Your turn> Shoot proton/slime/stasis/boson> Go for the bat and swing away> Other
>>33031215> Go for the bat and swing awayThese are fucking Kamaitachi. I hate these fuckers, every time I crossed the fields at my Grandmother's farm, I would always end up having long scratches (they never bled). Apparently they're caused by these fuckers.HIT HIM WITH THE BAT OF TRUTH!
>>33031215>Shoot proton/slime/stasis/bosonTime for prolapse.
>>33031215I worried about the windstorm. Take out these guys Yakuza style.>I am BATman!
>>33031215I say we go for the bat. If these weasels are who I think they are, they will be harder to hit with the ranged attacks.
>>33031279>>33031315>>33031319You put the wand back and swing out with your bat at the guy you shot's head.> Roll 1d20
>>33031215>Go for the bat and swing awayThey're gonna be fast, so be careful.I wish we had an old calendar and a lighter.
>>33031427Blown the fuck out.
Rolled 6, 13, 4 = 23>>33031427BAM! You SMASH the Weasel guy's face and not only are there sparks, but the guy turns into a regular sized weasel and goes flying across the plaza. He lands hard, and doesn't get back up.The wind even dies down a little as the other two gape at what just happened.Sato and Star unleash protonic hell at the third guy, and Akira attempts to keep up his batting average.
I wonder what the yokai's opinions are on zun and his portrayal of them as lolis in silly hats
>>33031510>implying zun isn't a yokai
Rolled 11, 13 = 24>>33031493Sato and Star have a good 'Dodge Sato to get hit by Star' routine going, but Akira gets a mass of debris in his face and his swing is wide. Strike One!The weasel guy attacks Akira with his sickle, and the other guy seems to nearly fly across the room and he assaults you.
>>33031510>implying that yokais aren't lolis in silly hats.
>>33031539Akira dodges. and as for the guy attack you, he hits...but he can't get his blade through your 'armor.'> Your turn
>>33031579Batter up! Let's pummel him into the ground and out of the way
>>33031579DAISUKE SMASH!I mean, he's RIGHT THERE, probably with a dumb look on his face because his sickle couldn't get through American football padding.
>>33031523this would explain a lot

>>33031667aww too bad.
Rolled 15, 13, 11 = 39>>33031658Not a home run, but definitely a base hit!Sato and Star once more pitch protonic fastballs and Akira swings for the fences.
>>33031706How long is this gonna go for?
Rolled 9>>33031706Sato and Star both place their pitches right into the sweet spot. The guy that you were swinging at collapses and turns back into a weasel.Akira sadly is continuing his re-enactment of 'Casey at the Bat.'The last standing man goes to slice Akira.
Rolled 3, 16, 3, 13 = 35>>33031774The weasel misses.You all unload.
>>33031771As long as it takes, friend. As long as it takes.
>>33031805Sato hits with his proton stream and Akira connects with his bat and the wind does down to nothing and there's one more not-moving weasel on the ground."My baby!" Akira lets out a cry and goes to check on YOMI-1."Oh crap, the van!" Sato says.> Roll 1d6
Rolled 3>>33031874It's dead Jim
Rolled 3>>33031874Ah man
Rolled 2>>33031874The can's dead, isn't it?
>>33031874>>33031890>>33031894>>33031895Well there goes our artillery.
Rolled 4>>33031903But it's not a 4! It's damaged, but salvageable.
Rolled 3>>33031921... Irony? The Dice God's sense of sadistic humor, laughing into the night and all through eternity?
>>33031890>>33031894Hey, 3 is the lucky number of life irl at least
Rolled 4>>33031948The Dice God did nothing wrong.
>>33031890Okay, it's not THAT bad. You'll need a new bumper, and a new paint job, and new headlights, but it's still drivable."Ask Sana why she didn't warn us about this." Akira grumbles.You do."I'm going by 20 year old public access blueprints." Sana says. "There's like twenty little boxes where you are. I have no idea what is still there or not!""Anyway we're getting this thing up higher than this?" You ask."The only thing I see that's even remotely possible is the freight elevator." Sana says."Okay," You sigh. "What are our other options?""Well, there's the other elevators, there's escalators and open stairs that should take you all the way up to the 16th floor, and there's two stairwells...I think...one gets you all the way to the 21st floor. The other only goes to the 11th.""I'm sensing a but." You say."The 21st one is more of a staff and utility staircase. It's half the size of the one that goes up to the offices.""And the elevators?" You ask for completeness."They can take you all the way up, but the freight one only goes to the 30th, not the roof."> Well, let's do the worst idea ever, and take a van inside an elevator.> Let's risk it, and skip all this crap, and take the elevator to the roof.> The stairwell to the office levels only gets us so high, but they're the safest and easiest route to take.> Crossing these stairs in the open will be risky, but it's better than fighting in closed quarters, and we'll get all the way up to the hotel.> The staff stairs are really dangerous, cramped quarters, cheap stairs, but they get us all the way to the condos. We'll take those.> Other
>>33032227>The stairwell to the office levels only gets us so high, but they're the safest and easiest route to take.Like fuck we're getting in a death box.
Rolled 4>>33032227> Well, let's do the worst idea ever, and take a van inside an elevator.What could possibly go wrong?
>>33032227Brawl our way up the safest stairs there are: the wide ones. More room for Kung Fu Hustle.
>>33032227just finished reading the first iteration of this quest and damn was that a huge crossoverfatal frame mansion thing was pretty neat tho
>>33032227>The stairwell to the office levels only gets us so high, but they're the safest and easiest route to take.Safer option.
>>33032295Whelp, the dice gods have spoken. We're taking the elevator!
If we wanted to get on the roof, we COULD use our proton packs streams in conjunction to lift the Yomi-1 onto there without damaging it.The proton streams are capable of lifting even delicate objects like wooden chairs to heavy iron pillars with ease.
>>33032271>>33032295>>33032334"Okay, there's some wider stairs that'll take us out of the open and up to the office levels. Let's go." You say."Are we leaving YOMI here alone?" Star asks.> Are you? Is someone staying behind to watch the van?
Rolled 1>>33032416It's going up in the elevator, of course.
>>33032416Lock up the van.We can't afford to leave anyone here.Too bad we couldn't put up a couple wards to protect it.
>>33032416.....Shit, they'll tear her apart if we leave her here. And if someone staying behind is the horror movie waiting to happen.
>>33032416>>33032533Can we have Yurei possess it and pretend like she's Christine? Partially joking. Partially.
>>33032602That's actually a good idea.If it's already possessed, a ghost can't possess it.
>>33032602> Roll 1d20
>>33032602>>33032629Wait, what if we hook up the Chyme to the van's sound system and leave the engine running, in order to power the proton cannon?
Rolled 4>>33032703Time to give it some SOUL POWAH!
Rolled 5>>33032703LITTLE BITTY PRETTY ONE
Rolled 2>>33032703Is this to have Yurei possess YOMI?
>>33032737Apparently the Dice Gods do not appreciate puns.
>>33032737Why? What did the car ever do to you?
>>33032737The second Yurei touches the van there's a huge discharge of energy from the super slammer and you see the poor little ghost girl flung against the wall where she literally splats against it leaving a mess of light grey slime and a very dazed looking spirit on the floor.Akira chokes back a little laugh, but he looks sympathetic."Oh!" Star says. "You poor dear!" She goes to comfort the girl but the moment she gets within two feet of her, she sits up, and vomits up another mass of slime on the ground."Star! The sake!" Sato says."Oh! Sorry sorry sorry!" She backs away."Come on, go back inside your home kiddo." Sato says, holding out the Chyme. Yurei wearily staggers to it and disappears inside the player. She will be out of commission for a while as she recuperates from that."Okay," Akira sighs. "That didn't work. Are we just locking YOMI and leaving her then?"
>>33032864>>33032821>>33032796I... I only wanted some classic soul music..... I didn't mean to..... oh god I'm so sorry.
>>33032880I wish we had a real techie on the team; if we did, they could wire the Super Slammer into the metal frame of YOMI so that any ghost that gets too close will get sucked into the trap, like a cross between the Eiffel Tower and when Ray and Egon turned those garbage trucks into a series of Ghost Traps.
>>33032880Poor Yurei.We gotta cheer her up later with a blind date with Akira. We can find a haunted Italian restaurant somewhere around Tokyo, right?
>>33032910We even had a 19 that would have let us do what we wanted, to. >>33032880We only drove YOMI into the central plaza. Could we just drive it back outside?
>>33032880>>33032910>>33032947Guys, make the stairs wider with some Proton blasting, then push/pull the Yomi up the stairs using the capture stream.
>>33032880Just keep the cannon whirring.
>>33032980That would give them time to prepare I guess, also ruin the moment.
>>33032983Alright, if this is what it takes to get keep Yomi with us.Good thing nuclear energy make lifting objects several dozen times your weight a breeze.
>>33033029>That would give them time to prepare I guessIt would also invalidate the "invite the Ur-Exorcists into our home" advantage we got.
>>33032983And then the dice rolls propel it outside the hard way.
>>33033105Of course we could even use slime tethers to act as a catch as well as help lift it up the stairs.
>>33033105>>33033127And of course, teamwork. Surely two people wrangling a car can't fail, right?
>>33033105>>33033127>>33033142What if wasting time bringing the car with us is giving these jackasses more time to prepare? We've got SOME manner of surprise, but not much and it's dwindling fast.
>>33033067Okay, there's a few things that need to change in order for you to lift YOMI to the floors above.You won't be able to take the stairwells, they are not wide enough for YOMI. You'll have to take the open staircases and escalators.Lifting the van, and it will be a combination of capture streams and slime tethers, will take a check, the more floors you move it at a time, the harder the check. If you move it fewer flora, there will be multiple checks, etc.If you fail a check the van either won't move, or will take more damage.At a certain height, a ghost roll could mean that YOMI-1, and all the equipment on her will be completely totaled.This does NOT take into account any attacks or other distractions you might encounter on your ascent.That's the scenario. You can do it, but it will not be easy. You will honestly have better odds using the freight elevator.
>>33032880>"Okay," Akira sighs. "That didn't work. Are we just locking YOMI and leaving her then?"Sadly, we have no other choice. Unless you want to ride the elevator, and that risks a ghost possessing the elevator. If something does happen we can always make the Yomi-1b.
>>33033233Eh, just lock it up and leave it there then.It's insured.
>>33033193Who needs surprise when you have a Big Gun? I really think we need it if who we>>33033233Truth, much too complicated floor at a time.>>33033234Of course, we can always slime the elevator to prevent that.The Freight elevator is but 1 floor below the roof.>>33033289I just think if we can do anything to take her with us, we should, we need as many advantages as we can get.
>>33033233I hate to just leave it, and the freight elevator is just asking for youkai to cut the cables or something to possess the elevator.
>>33033308*Who needs surprise when you have a Big Gun? I really think we need it if who we need everything we can get,even time admittedly, is not something we should waste which is true
>>33033308>we need as many advantages as we can get.What you think is an advantage, is actually secretly a liability.
>>33033233Just cover YOMI in posi-slime and let's get going to the office stairwell. We've wasted too much time as it is.
>>33033308If you really want the van so bad (and to be fair, I do too) we can fight our way to the 30th floor, open the elevator shaft and slime it, and then get the Yomi up through the elevator.
>>33033398Actually, that'll work.Anyway, let's disembark and start fighting our way up the stairs then.
>>33033398How do we use it when it's on the 30th and our target is on the roof?Not to mention the walls, plumbing, and wiring on the 30th floor limiting YOMI's ability to be driven around.
>>33033503The roof is the 31st floor, it's just a a single set of stairs to get to the roof from the 30th.Or we just blast a hole in the roof all the same and any other obstruction.
>>33033539Hell, we only need to get it to the 30th, blast a hole in the cieling and then park the Yomi under it and Bam we have access Super Trap on the roof.
God fucking damnit you guys, forget about the fucking van.This is supposed to be an homage to the Raid, so stop trying to avoid the gauntlet and let's fucking get on with it.God damn it.
>>33033726I'm perfectly fine with getting all of the advantages we can; however, I think that trying to get the van up to the roof, or even the 30th floor, is a trap option where it won't be as useful as people think it will be, or will only result in us losing the van due to it being pushed off of the 30th floor of a hotel controlled by ghosts and youkai.
>>33033792>>33033792Hey, we're walking to the 30th floor anyway. If we can get the van up there why not, the worst that can happen is it gets smashed but it's insured so that ain't a problem either.If can't get the van up there, then we fight this thing all the same.
>>33033792I just don't think we need it and feel we've spent enough time standing around.
>>33033835Because someone has to go down using the freight elevator after we slime it, go to YOMI (hoping it hasn't been possessed or a youkai hasn't hotwired it), drive it into the elevator, and ride the elevator back up.Either we lose time doing that, or we split the team.And slimeing the elevator car and cables does not prevent a youkai from cutting the cables or burning out the elevator motor, which is located on the roof.
>>33033233Ditch the van and proceed upwards.
>>33033977I would think that at the 30th floor, the elevator motor itself would be well in range of our slime throwers being only a floor up.As for splitting the team that is also true, darned shame Yurei got messed up otherwise she could fly down there in a matter of moments and simply drive it up. Not even have to posses whole car, just handle the wheels like a normal person.The elevator car could also be set to wait on this floor to spare time as well.Anyway, just a thought for when we get there. But likely we're fighting this on foot.
>>33034061"Maybe if we get control of the upper floors we can come back with the elevator for it." You say with a sigh. "Other than that, lock it, cover it in slime so they can't touch it...hopefully...and I don't think there's anything else we can do.""Agreed." Sato says. "We need to move."Akira nods. "Right."You lock and slime YOMI and head towards the office access stairs. The stairs are nice, wide, and there's a pretty mural wall that goes up along side of the stairway.There doesn't seem to be much activity on the stairs. Maybe they didn't think you'd go this way.> Roll 1d12

"That there's a source."You spray slime right into it.The reaction is NOT what you expected. You were hopping to plug it up, or stop the snowfall.You were NOT expecting the standard Posi-slime/Negi-slime reaction, nor for it to cause a chain reaction.You all let out a shout of surprise as the tingling feeling and acidic smell fills the room and the whitefish snow you were standing in turns into dark foul looking water.The gentle snow is gone and now the filthy water is seeping into your boots.You also see a woman standing in the middle of the hall looking completely shocked.She looks to be in her late 30s/early 40s. She's dressed in a cheap dress style that was popular 10 years ago. She also has a cherry red, Hello Kitty, plastic arm bracelet. The water around her legs is slightly frozen, and her flesh looks puckered. Like she spent too long in the bath."Oh thank the heavens! Please, you have to help me reach her. Mitsuko is just...alone...and afraid. She needs her mother. These monsters are exploiting her rage. I've been trying to reach her, but they trapped me on this floor. If you help me I can calm her.

Didn't Mitsuko's abandonment by her mother happen BEFORE her death? Or am I misremembering the movie?

The woman says."It could be dangerous if she comes with us." Star says. "Maybe she hides here and we come back for her when the place is cleared.""No! They'll know that I've been freed from their trick and the slime will wear off and I'll be frozen here again." The ghost says."You KNOW what I think." Akira says. "Maybe we could put her in a trap and let her out when we get to the brat. That's even if the demon spawn is coherent enough to listen to her.""She will listen to me!" The ghost says.

I might not be able to make that vow, as she is Forsaken.""Can you promise to be as unobtrusive as possible until we reach the roof?" You say.She nods."Alright, you've got a..." You bite your lip. "Umm...what did you mean by favorite mother?""I'm the mother Mitsuko loves the most! We have such lovely times in the winter, and even in the fall. She's not replaced me like the others. I've been around the longest, and I am the one my Mitsuko comes to for comfort when the trees are bare and the snow falls." She smiles. "The summer mothers are tramps all of them, no wonder Mitsuko gets bored with them."Sato groans and puts his face in his hands."Oh dear." Star says."I should have known." Akira says."Anyway, I promise to stay out of the way as much as I can." Mitsuko's 'Winter Mother' says. "But, please do we have a deal?"> Shake her hand.> Deal's off.> Other
>>33036083>Shake her hand.A yuki-onna, huh.
>>33036139Our teammates have expressed their opinion very clearly. She only believes she is Mitsuko's favorite dughter as winter, likely out of some inflated sense of self worth. I'm sure the summer, spring, and fall mothers hold the same opinion.
>>33036083"We'll take you to her, but... it'll have to be in a box."
>>33036083>>33036139>>33036190Leaning towards no, then…>>33036217…unless we have three more boxes for the other seasons.
>>33036190>>33036246You didn't read the >She's not replaced me like the othersPart?Mitsuko gets bored of her other mothers and either eats them or releases them, but this one she stays with for half the year.
>>33036246We should have boxes a plenty.By the way, I just remembered we still haven't busted the Primal Spirit of Rage. Hopefully she paid us the gold we made her promise when we bested her, and use it to track her down and at another time we go and finish the job.>>33036274Can we really trust her words? If we can, then by all means I'll say yes. Still, wish we could hold her to something more than her own words though.
>>33036274Yes, but I didn't think it entailed cannibalism.
>>33036287Eh, right now the Rage spirit is doing good and we already saw that she intends to keep her word.
>>33036083> Deal's off.Feels wrong. No.
>>33036319Only because she is afraid of us and doesn't want to get caught.She also even says she's expecting us to grow old and die and plans to go back to her old ways. That is NOT a finished job at all.
>>33036083>Shake her hand.I feel like she's not really powerful enough to be that much of a threat to us, so the small chance of her convincing Mitsuko to come peacefully is a good gambit.
>>33036083> Shake her hand.Whether she betrays us or not, just another ghost to be busted.
>>33036083Maybe do a group huddle with the gang first.Make our case that even though she'll likely betray us, she seems like enough of a pushover that it might still be a net gain.

>>33036477This, let's leave the tough decisions to a vote. This time everyone should have an opinion one way or the other
>>33036523Yeah I mean, Sato and Akira kind of have points that we really shouldn't be calling the shots for every encounter.Though that's more a problem with the quest format itself, and one that's difficult to avoid.
>>33036508"Uhh, one moment." You say, and turn to the others. "Guys?""Screw her. Kid's evil, she's faking, I say blast her." Akira says."Maybe we should bring her along?" Star says. "She doesn't look like she's lying...maybe thralled...but we can help with that. I think?""I think we should take her, but in a ghost trap." Sato says."I will NOT go into those boxes you have." The Winter Mother says. "How can I trust YOU?""It's a two way street." Sato says.She shakes her head. "I'm sorry...I've heard things about those boxes. I'll stay out of your way, but I won't go into one of them."Sato shrugs. "Well if that's the case, then I suggest leaving her here to rot."> That's the other's opinions. Call's up to you.> Deal *shake her hand*> No Deal
>>33036699>> No DealThank her for making it simple and leave her here.

>>33036699>Deal *shake her hand*If we manage to snap her out of it, she could help Mitsuko move on.Also we need to conserve our energy and avoid conflict while we can, we've still got like a shitload of floors left to go.

They're holding knives, bats, chains, cleavers, spears, a few have swords, and all of them have armor on. Pots, kettles, street signs, pieces of sheet metal and siding. All of it is covered with black slime.In the middle of the crowd is a blonde woman in a red and white kimono. She has a mass of busy tails hanging out from behind her.

And since this is a giant ring we have little choice.>>33037936This, however having two cover our rear and two to the front isn't a bad idea if we stay in a group.The Meson Collider tended to overheat a lot more than the Stasis stream, and the Slime could fire forever as it was unrelated to the heat functions.I say, two in the front fire forward and keep pushing. Two face behind and lay down slime and stasis beam to slow down the rear. When the two up front overheat, switch around and the two behind move up to fire meson, while the two cool down while firing slime, then the low heat Stasis stream.Repeat.
>>33037982I like it.
>>33037982Tactically sound. Time tested and true.
>>33037982Going with this guy.
>>33037982Just make sure you cycle the switching so you have at least one man firing on each flank at any one time.
>>33037982You use a lot of words, that makes me think you're legit....Which isn't really a good method of deciding things, but let's go with it.
>>33037982Sounds good to me. As a side note grenades of some kind would be really useful, maybe we should work on that at some point
>>33038062Imagining it that makes it twice more awesome.
>>33038062Yeah that's a good addendum.
>>33038082Boson Darts are essentially our grenades. The closest thing we have to something like that is the Ghost Bomb, but that is more like an actual bomb which must be set up and destroys all ectoplasmic energy in a 50 yard radius.In theory we could scale it down and make it act like a grenade, then you could say we have hand held mini-nukes.
>>33037982"Okay...I've got a plan, we're making a push." You say. "Follow my instructions and maybe we won't die!""You're SUCH an inspiring leader." Akira says.You start to enact the push plan, two in front layering down Meson blasts, and pushing forward (With occasional application of baseball bat) and two in the back covering with slime and stasis.It's pretty effective. The Tengu don't really have a coordinated attack strategy, so it's what always happens when untrained hordes come up against a few who are trained and equipped. The hordes get mowed down.However, it's just a question if there's enough horde to make up for the attrition.> roll 1d20
Rolled 10>>33038113Sudden realization: there are FOUR of us! What does this mean...?
Rolled 2>>33038113Here goes nothing...>>33038127Oh fuuk.
Rolled 17>>33038113Already used up a ghost roll, so…
Rolled 10>>33038113>>33038129Hey, 5 if you count Yurei.
Rolled 20>>33038105>Nuclear hand grenadesThis pleases me greatly.>>33038113
Rolled 1>>33038127U R KILL
>>33038147Do 20s cancel out ghost dice? If they negate, we've got a nice 17...If not...oops.
Rolled 3>>33038127You punch through the Tengu line, and you have a straight shot at the Kitsune.Who has a gun."This is your fault you know." She says. "This disgusting escalation...this is what you get when you break the rules!"BANG!
>>33038241>Who has a gun.Well I wasn't expecting that.
>>33038241that's a miss right?
>>33038278Me neither, but I felt it was bound to happen after a while.No matter, if the original Ghostbusters were able to dodge lightning bolts and lightning is faster than bullets, we'll be fine.
>>33038279It wasn't a four. I'll take it as a good thing.
>>33038241Shit, was not expecting that.Also wasnt expecting a d4, that can't bode well.
>>33038278>>33038292For that matter there is probably a reason these ghosts don't just hijack a cruise missile to blow us up or arm themselves with masses of ak-47s.Why she broke this reason is. . .ill news.
If these ghosts are going to fucking escalate, we ought to return have Yurei or Rini go into Underworld Japan and get us some ghost weapons to use against them. I mean, guns are designed by humans to kill humans I bet the ghosts have their own weapons designed against other ghosts.
Rolled 4>>33038241Akira lets out a cry of pain and drops his wand, you see blood start to appear on his upper jumpsuit."See? This is what you get." The kitsune says. She points the gun at you. "Although, I do admit this way solves problems amazingly efficiently."She cocks the hammer and aims at you.Yurei springs out from Sato's chyme, and, her hands bubbling and sizzling like she dipped them in acid, grabs the bottle of Sake off from Star's belt and chucks it at the Kitsune.
>>33038369WowA ghost made ghost rollDice god must be having fun
>>33038369>Yurei rolls a 4That's good right?>>33038307A ghost using a mortal weapon to fight mortals is probably such a huge taboo of the natural order and major bad mojo on her part.
>>33038369>Akira lets out a cry of pain and drops his wand, you see blood start to appear on his upper jumpsuit.I don't want him to get with Yurei that badly, now.>>33038388Maybe it has an inverse significance?
>>33038351I would also like to consider nuclear hand grenades.Ordinance. Ordinance for everyone.We should also talk to Central about these recent events.
>>33038369NOW you roll a 4.Well it's been fun.Bet it'll be a lethal wound as well.
>>33038369The kitsune is too damn quick on the draw however, and turns and fires at the oncoming bottle. It explodes, and Sake sprays over everything in a fine mist.The remaining, and simply wounded tengu all flinch and recoil, a few of them close to grabbing you end up having to back off. They can't touch you.The kitsune hisses as the spray gets her, causing her face to flicker from human to vulpine and back. She retreats and exits out a door marked UTILITY STAIRS.> After her. You've got blood in the air and that bitch has much to answer for.> You've got a chance to break for the regular stairs. That'll get you to the condos. Maybe you'll be able to regroup. Either way, Yurei and Akira are wounded. They need help.> The three of you can use the Sake blast and the confusion to take out, or scare off, the Tengu and stay here on the hotel floor to recover.> Other

>>33038424> You've got a chance to break for the regular stairs. That'll get you to the condos. Maybe you'll be able to regroup. Either way, Yurei and Akira are wounded. They need help.Team comes first, get some slime on that to stop the bleeding.
>>33038424>> You've got a chance to break for the regular stairs. That'll get you to the condos. Maybe you'll be able to regroup. Either way, Yurei and Akira are wounded. They need help.Triage get. Have to assess the damage alongside recovering.
Rolled 1>>33038454"Plan doesn't change!" You shout to the other two as you sing Arika's arm over your shoulder. "Stairs! Now!"Sato is making sure that Yurei gets back into the Chyme, and Star is using a day-goo handkerchief to mop up some of the Sake. They finish and you all break towards the stair doors.The tengu...
>>33038495Do not pursue."I'm really hating that mural." Akira growls as he limps up the stairs with you. "How many floors do we have to go up?""Five." You say."Fuck...how to the Americans deal with getting shot all the time? This REALLY hurts!" Akira says.> Roll 1d12
>>33038495>The TenguDo whatever it is a mass of bumblefucks do without their leader.
Rolled 3>>33038519Well, at least he's still conscious.
Rolled 4>>33038495The ancients have little to say about this
Rolled 9>>33038536Well, then.
>>33038536"What's that sound?" Akira asks as you cross the second flight of stairs.You notice that there's dark and filthy water running down the mural, and the sound is rushing water. Slowly growing closer, and getting a LOT louder."Bitch is trying to drown us!" Sato says."More like knock us down the stairs." Star says. "Or crush us."> Break into the sealed door to the hotel floor level you're on to dodge the flood> Use the carabiners and rope and strap yourselves to the stair railing and hang on for dear life and ride it out.> Head back down to the base of the steps and avoid it all together.> Other
>>33038560We have got to regard those murals with more scrutiny.>Break into the sealed door to the hotel floor level you're on to dodge the floodTry to be ready for what's on the other side.
Rolled 10>>33038594"Hang on man." You shout. "Sato! Get this thing open! On three!""THREE!" You and Sato yell at the same time and shoulder the door.
>>33038667The door bursts open and Star brings Akira through the door.Sato closes the door and uses his baton to jam it shut. You hear thousands of gallons of water rush by and the door shudders and oozes.You all stagger down the hall and find one room that has a lockable door and a bed frame, it has no mattress but with some stray rags make it into enough of a cot for Akira to collapse onto it.It looks like the damn football pads saved Akira's ass. The bullet might have gone deeper, or worse. As it is it's just in his upper shoulder. It's not bleeding like crazy so it doesn't look like it hit an artery, and he can still move his shoulder, so the joint's intact as well.The bullet has to come out though. And you have no idea how to do that. Or if Akira's going to be able to fight after this.Also, Yurei is looking very bad. She's a being of PKE who came into direct contact with an item that had the one specific ability of disrupting PKE. Her hands are a scarred mess, and you can tell that it's going to get worse. If something isn't done, Yurei will...collapse into nothing."The facilities are water damaged, the staff is surly, and the decor leaves much to be desired." Sato snarks as he collapses against a wall. "I give this place...one and a half stars.""What's the half star for?" Star asks."Plentiful parking." Sato says.END EPISODE 23
>>33038716NEXT EPISODETHURSDAY, JULY 3RD, 3-5PM PST
>>33038723Thanks a lot Ghostmaster. It's always fun.
>>33038723Hell of a cliffhanger. If the gun jarred and shocked people, losing Yurei might… Well, see y'all next week. Thanks for the episode.
Rolled 1>>33038716Thanks for running, GM. Fun as always.I really hope we don't lose Yurei ;_;
>>33038745>>33038789But guys, this might be our chance to free her from this mortal realm. If her PKE form collapses, nothing will tie her soul down anymorewould it be right to keep here her, just because we and her want to?
Yurei! Akira! Noooooooooo!
