Welcome to Academy City. The time is afternoon, the weather is pleasant, and the date is August 25.You are Kyril Torikov, ‘Level 2’ Telekinetic Child Error, and you were wondering if you really had the time to do two jobs at once. While Nakazawa told you that it wasn’t necessary that his project won the ACRE Assembly. It would only be the cherry atop his cake. Speaking of cake, the cake from Kaoru’s birthday party was delicious. It was nice and soft with generous amounts of creamy frosting. Probably wouldn’t do to have that too often, lest you fatten up, you thought as you patted your soft stomach. The thought of food came back to what Nunotaba had asked you to steal.She wanted you to steal a bag of chemicals that looked like a human, a chemicaloid. Now you recalled that Asuka specifically said that as long as you weren’t trafficking drugs, guns or humans, you were a keeper. Does an artificial human count then? Probably, but you already accepted the job, for better or for worse. Still, you recall that Nunotaba didn’t have any qualms about taking Last Order either so there was that. She didn’t set a deadline for the job but if her words were to be taken seriously, then STUDY seemed to have something set up for the ACRE Assembly and that was just screamed bad news. You still had five days though so it was best to,>Get started on Nunotaba’s job>Help out Nakazawa this afternoon
The rules are pic related.For more information see: http://padlet.com/BoredofDirector/acsquareq
>>33358654>Help out Nakazawa this afternoonLet's take a short break from the heavy stuff with a little bit of light sabotage, get some TK practise in.
>>33358654>>Get started on Nunotaba’s job
Rolled 2Why?>>333587821. Nakazawa>>333588492. Nunotaba
>>33358654>Help out Nakazawa this afternoon
Kyril's life, over and over again.
Yet again I miss the first vote
Hopefully we'll have another Accel interlude. Really looking forward to how things develop with albino girl.
>>33358654>>Help out Nakazawa this afternoon
You needed to work on the bigger job first. If you got that out of the way then you could help Nakazawa without worrying about it. It’s not like Nakazawa needed to win or anything. Which was why he was slightly bummed you told him that something came up and that you wouldn’t be able to help him too much today. The Problem Children assembled in your dorm room shortly.“So, what is the job this time O Fearless Leader?” Asuka started after you had served everyone tea.“Our good friend Nunotaba wants us to steal a Chemicaloid from STUDY Corporation,” you answered.You had passed the files on STUDY around. Tadakuni probably didn’t care too much and Kyousuke was still waiting his turn as Sagara pored over the information. You had given them the most salient points though. For her part Asuka was well informed already on STUDY, given her own modest investments.“So how is this not a kidnapping again?” Kyousuke asked.“What if we’re actually rescuing them?” Tadakuni posited.“Either way, I am on board for this endeavour,” Asuka stated, “A crash in their share prices would benefit me greatly.”You hadn’t thought of that.“Let’s not get ahead of ourselves for the moment,” you warned, “We still need to know what exactly the Chemicaloid is, where it’s being kept and the defences. That and I still have to talk Toulour about the job.”“Nunotaba was working with STUDY correct?” you nodded at Asuka’s question, “Then we could ask her directly.”“That could compromise her though,” Sagara finally spoke up, “But if Toulour couldn’t find more information about this Chemicaloid I’m not sure how much of a help he’d be.”“Might as well make sure he doesn’t know anything more,” you disagreed, “Last option is to do our own legwork.”“I’m good with whatever you decide boss,” Tadakuni said.They all looked to you.>Bug Nunotaba>Ask Toulour>Do legwork
>>33359287>Ask Toulourinfo brokering is kind of his thing
>>33359287>Ask ToulourTo see if there's a conflict of interest, if nothing else.
>>33359287>Ask ToulourI don't like the fact he's our go-to guy for everything. That's a sure way to get us killed, but we do have to inform him of our targets, so we might as well hit two birds with one stone.
>>33359422How would that get us killed? He has no reason to fuck us over.
>>33359507Uh he's head of a shadowy organisation, if we piss off a board member or magic cabal, do you really think he won't sell us out?Toulour is a nice enough guy, but like us, is a criminal, if he knows too much about us he'll use it to his own advantage.
>>33359717We're a useful part of said organization, though, and I think he knew our mom if I read the last thread right, so I don't see him selling us out unless we do something retarded like trying to kill Crowley. I don't think we should get too buddy-buddy with him either, but there's no need to engage the shadowruns with our boss, at least for the moment.
>>33359782Yeah, highly likely that the Toulour from yesterdays thread is the same as our Toulour. So yes, he does know Kyrils mother.
>>33359782>>33359855Well yes he knows our mother, and that's probably the only reason we've been invited to THIEF. Consider how he didn't like our first heist which buggered up another member of THIEF, and the fact the last heist we did allowed a member of ITEM to identify us, we're probably not that useful a part.
>>33359952If he wanted to nail us, he could and probably would have done it already given our earlier mistakes. I think as long as we keep the fuck-ups to a minimum we should be good, at least for a while.
>>33359977Well yeah, this is mostly what I meant. The problem is if we make another fuck up. We need to start collecting our own contacts to get information, or we're going to be overly reliant on him.
>>33360085Maybe see if we can hire Management. He'll get you any information or personnel you need to do a job, and he's got a crazy business ethic. Never betrays a client once he's been paid.
>>33360085Ok, I get you. Getting some contacts of our own is definitely a good idea, certainly. I thought you were suggesting we engage maximum shadowruns, which is not such a good idea.
“Well I gotta go see Toulour, you guys think you can find more info on your own?” you finally said.“I’m not sure but I’ll look in to it,” Kyousuke stood up.“Same here,” Sagara added.“Good, we’ll meet back up here tomorrow,” you finished.With that, the group basically disbanded. Asuka had stayed behind but that wasn’t unusual. What was unusual was that even when you called Toulour he had asked to meet up. Apparently he had something to give you. Well it was getting close to dinner so it wasn’t that much of a big deal.When you finally met up with him, he looked terrible. Rather he seemed tired, eyes swollen red and his usual cheery smile nowhere to be found. You were sitting a private booth at a fancy restaurant, which was also strange. Normally he was fine with some random fast food joint.“Hey,” he greeted listlessly.“You look like shit Toulour,” you couldn’t help blurting it out.“Tell me something new,” he removed his glasses, “I have something for you.”From under the table he produced a white shoebox. Then he handed it to you. It was wrapped in black ribbons.“Open it in your own time alright,” he continued, “What can I do for you?”“Uh thanks,” you replied hesitantly.You wondered what was inside, half-curious but also half-confused. What brought this on?“We have business with STUDY Corporation,” Asuka interrupted.“I see,” he put his glasses back on, “Nunotaba put you up to this?”“She is the usual suspect yes,” Asuka affirmed, “We shall be stealing their Chemicaloid.”“Chemicaloids,” Toulour corrected, all business, “You’re in the clear for this.”“There is more than one?”“Wait you know more about them?” you caught up to their conversation.“We know that there’s more than one and we’ve been trying to acquire one for a while now,” he continued, “We would be glad to fence it for you. Anymore questions?”>Ask away (write-in)
>>33360225"How many? I can grab one, maybe two, but not an army's worth. Also, how well-guarded are they?"
>>33360225>WHAT IN GOD'S NAME IS A CHEMICALOIDSomebody had to ask it
>>33360225What the fuck is a chemicacloid exactly?
>>33360225"Are the Chemicaloids sentient? If no, then we can probably fence the other, but if they are, i'm not becoming a slave-trader."Honestly it's a fairly shitty option, I don't think that Kyril would ever willingly sell one of his Lolis, and I also think Asuka would probably stab him if he tried.
>>33360359>>33360315Well you see, when a Kihara and a test tube love eachother very much...
>>33360381I feel like I recognize the name Kiharab-butPapa-anontest tubes don't have genitals
>>33360419Basically, Kihara=bad news. If the name ever comes up, we run as far and as fast as we can.
>>33360419Sounds like a job for HARD SCIENCE.Obviously AC is at the head of the functional glass genitalia industry. They're at the head of every other one.
>>33360444sowwy anon-sempaiI just started watching Railgun S last night/this morningEveryone's always talking about world war three and shitand I'm like 'how the hell did that happen'and I figure I should probably learn about thatgiven I'm considering starting an AC quest muhself>>33360466>hard sciencel-lewd
>>33360520>I just started watching Railgun S last night/this morningJust note that everything after the clones arc is non-canon bullshit by the director that even Kamachi hated.
>>33360610huhseems like fun, I guess?I'll watch season 2 of Index after this, unless it's terrible or something?just, yanno, I started with Railgun and then went to Indexfeels right to do it this way
>>33360520Eh, that stuff isn't too big an influence on the Railgun portion of things, it's only an issue if you want to do a more Index-central quest. If you want to do something like this, don't worry about it too much. Also, what >>33360610 said with regards to the canon, though I will defend the last arc somewhat as at least it's funny bullshit.
>>33360520Go for the Railgun manga and the Index LN. Honestly the anime doesn't know what it's talking about half the time.But seriously, Kiharas are terrifying. They're a semi-bloodline of mad scientists with no sense of self-preservation or morality. For example, Enshuu.See, some people decided to see if they could reform a Kihara baby. So they locked her in a dark room for her entire childhood and gave her no education and no contact with anything, ever.She made equations out of a language she built herself, processing chips out of paper, psychological tests out of lamps. She learned science from the way dust floated in the air and the feeling of a plastic cup.Finally she melted her chains and turned her captors into wax. She didn't even do it to escape. As far as she was concerned that room had everything she'd ever need. She just did it because she wanted to show people she could. She didn't even realize she'd killed people.Now she's a psychotic killing machine. She can't read or write, so she just analzyes people and takes their skills. She copied Touma's fighting style and crushed someone's torso in with it. And the other Kiharas still see her as a soft failure.
>>33360660Eh, the STUDY stuff might not be the most well-made, but I at least still found it to be entertaining nonsense, mostly for the last episode.
>>33360660That's pretty much chronologically correct. All the super exciting stuff happens in the light novels and will probably never get animated. But that's where all the War, Magic Bullshit and Misaka Worst(Best) come into play.
>>33360660To be honest, the best way to do things is to read the Index novels, read the Railgun manga and watch the first halfs of both Railgun anime seasons.Don't bother with the Index second season, since it horribly butchers everything.
>>33360739What's wrong with the second half of Railgun 1? I liked the power armor shenanigans.
>>33360779You can watch it if you want, but it's also non-canon bullshit by Nagai.>>33360698The problem is that it interferes with the timeline and fucks over Misaka's characterization.
>>33360694... watokay, I'm a genius, and most of my friends are also geniuseswhich means we're moderately smarter than your average smart personwhich amounts to basically nothing since genius IQ levels come with psychological problemsWhy am I saying this?BECAUSE THAT'S NOT HOW HUMANS WORKWHY DOES THIS LN/MANGA/SHOW EVEN PRETEND TO SCIENCE?WHY/endrant>>33360739kk>>33360779I did tooI also liked the Kongou shenanigansMitsuku a best
>>33360779Alot of people didn't like it specifically because of how weak those mechs were. AC powered armor is insane. It's not something you take on casually.Also what >>33360815 said. Nagai decided Railgun needed more power of friendship and shit, and didn't realize or didn't care that Mikoto involving her friends in dark side shenanigans is something she still struggles with down the line.
>>33360849Most humans don't work that way. Kiharas do. Part of the reason AC was created was in order to contain them. Without AC offering them moral-free science, they'd be spread all over the world. Now all of them are concentrated in one place.They're stated to be more a force of nature than anything else. They'll always arise even if you kill all the current ones.
>>33360815Oh it's certainly shit as part of Railgun, but there's still some entertainment value to be derived from the fighting robot silliness, if only in a so bad it's good sense.
>>33360694Jesus fuckin christ
>>33360895>Kiharas aren't most humansAlright, I got itthey're SCIENCE! given human formSCIENCE! Elementals?Also, where's LO? Did we leave her with TOSHINOU KYOUKO and the rest of the amusement club when we left the party or did I miss something?
>>33360694Kiharas can't even escape themselves if they want to. R.I.P. Kagun.
>>33360225What's with the box?
>>33361021Kagun is possibly the mostly badass character in the series. Even moreso than Acqua.>Even when I get the results, the price I had to pay doesn’t match.

“What exactly is a Chemicaloid then?” you asked, “I mean all your report said was artificial Ability User.”“Which in turn implied sentience,” Asuka added.“Right that too. I’m not a slave-trader and I don’t want to be.”“I guess that’s a line you don’t want to cross huh?” Toulour mused, “Anyway, they’re exactly as was described. If you want to know what a Chemicaloid looks like physically then I can’t really help you too much there. I mean they’re artificial humans, they could look like anyone. You probably should have asked Nunotaba, we’ll pay you for the information too.”“I’ll think about it,” you answered, “How many of them are there then? Two? Three?”“We don’t know either,” Toulour angrily adjusted his glasses, “At least two.”“Nunotaba told you to steal their Chemicaloid yes?” Asuka asked you.You nodded.“Using that exact phrasing?” you nodded again, “Then if her words were deliberate then it would mean they only possess one.”“So someone has already stolen the others huh?” Toulour concluded, “I’ll look in to that for you, free of charge. As for where you could start, we’ve earmarked different facilities that looked promising though I can’t guarantee anything.”“Then I guess that’s all the questions I have, thanks Toulour.”His melancholic mood returned as he raised his wine glass for you. Dinner after that was a silent affair. Between escorting Asuka home and picking up LO, who seemed to be exhausted from the party, by the time you got home it was late. Not too late that you couldn’t read but there was Toulour’s package that you were curious about. After tucking Last Order in, you decided to,>Read Minds, Memories, and Multi-tasking>Read Art of Approximation>Mess around with Teacher’s letter (this will forego reading)>Open Toulour’s package (this will forego reading)
>>33361112It's probably something to do with our mom, right?Given we just had a mom interludeand it involved Tolourthe logical assumption wold be that it was all TOLOUR HAVING A FLASHBACK/PSYCHIC REVERSE PREMONITION THING
>>33361167>>Read Art of Approximation
>>33361167>Open Toulour’s package (this will forego reading)Can we open it with TK?untying ribbons is probably pretty good practice~
>>33361167>Open Toulour's package
>>33361167>Read Minds, Memories, and Multi-taskingGotta get that bonus!
>>33361167>Open Toulour’s package (this will forego reading)
>>33361153What happened to him anyway? I haven't read the last 3 volumes yet because reasons, though I've been spoiled somewhat.Is he still walking around as a zombie or did he finally get his deserved rest after Othinus lost her power?
>>33361167>Open Toulour’s packageHonestly the reading stuff is gonna take so long it doesn't really matter if we delay an hour or so.
>>33361257Weird Norse zombie thing.
>>33361167> What's in the box?
>>33361257Kumokawa took him back to AC to bury him. He re-died once Othinus lost her powers.

Now really your curiosity was getting the better of you. With a small tug, the ribbon unravelled itself and you removed the lid of the shoebox. Inside, resting on a soft velvet cushion of purple was a gun. More specifically, it was a handgun that had been cut clean in two along the barrel. The magazine was missing. There was also a note. It had been crumpled up yet was still in the box.“It was all I could find of Ilyena. –Riko,” it read.Strange, you thought. However you had a hunch that it was supposed to be meaningful in some way. You didn’t know why you started rummaging around your room for the mementos of your biological parents. Of course once you found the photo of them did you remember. It was the only photo of them that you had. A faded old black and white photograph of them at their wedding, a wedding between Yuri Torikov and Ilyena Orlov, that’s it. It was way too much to be a coincidence. This was your mother’s gun. What fate that befell her you didn’t know, but it did keep you up all night wondering.[1/2]
>>33362038The time is late morning, the weather is depressing, and the date is now August 26.You awoke to the sound of Last Order trying to make breakfast. Correction, you awoke to the sound of Last Order trying to help make breakfast. Asuka was already in your kitchen and the lads were lounging about, chatting about nothing important. A blanket was around your shoulders as your face was bathed in a small pool of drool. The gun had been returned to the shoebox you concluded, though the picture of your parents was still in your grip.“Oh sleeping beauty’s awake,” Sagara said.“Kyril does not look beautiful by classical standards, says Misaka says Misaka as she counters your claims.”“I, uh,” you really weren’t ready for this, “I’ll just go get cleaned up.”“That would be wise dear,” Asuka set down a plate of hot sandwiches, “Breakfast is ready.”Leaving the picture on the table you retreated to the bathroom. A splash of cold water and your senses returned. The questions about your mother, and Toulour, were shoved far down on your mental list of priorities. First, you needed to drop off Last Order. Next you needed to get to work. Maybe at some point later today you’d be able to help Nakazawa while you’re at it. >Leave LO with Toshino>Leave LO with Index>Leave LO where she is
>>33360610>"So, will you grant us access to your DNA map?"OH GOD THAT'S A YOUNG MISAKA, NOT LAST ORDER>mfw flashbacksdid they at least actually develop a cure for muscular dystrophy?
>>33362059>>Leave LO with Index

>>33362069Nope, all you see is a blimp saying the company went bankrupt.>>33362059>Leave LO with Toshino
>>33362059>Leave LO with IndexThis is probably a bad idea, but the lure of potential lulz is too strong.
>>33362059>Leave LO with Toshino
>>33362059>Leave LO with Index>tell LO to keep an eye on Index and make sure she has plenty of paper; we can't have her writing all over our homie's roomCan we ask Kyouko to come and keep an eye on them?I want Kyouko to be there, but I'd rather not go on a big long detour>>33362132>bankruptooooohhhhh that's bullshit and I know it already
>>33362069>did they at least actually develop a cure for muscular dystrophy?>implying they ever needed Misaka to do that
Guys what if we invest with the Kihara Group and ask for a tour of their facilities? That should get us an in with them.
>>33362059>Leave LO with Toshino
>>33362214Why do they can lobotomize us for SCIENCE? They're just dicks and messing with them is just asking for trouble. And also massively meta. I don't think we've personally had any interaction with a Kihara, except maybe an off-comment with the Level-Upper Arc.
>>33362214But anon, there are faster ways to kill ourselves than that.
>>33362174what level was Misaka as a kid, anyways?I think I remember that she supposedly went all TRAINING MONTAGE and leveled up to fivewhat's the distinction between the levels anyways? Isn't it something like>Level three is when the ability is useful in everyday life>four is useful in combat >five is OP in combat>zero is not prevalent?>one and two are varying degrees of uselessness?Kiril seems to get a lot of use out of his 'level 2' TK, especially in combat
>>33362059 >Leave LO with Toshino
>>33362290Level 1 I think. That's the level she started at anyways. Though leveling up is bullshit in general, AC knows what level you're going to hit the second you become an Esper.BasicallyLevel 0 = UselessLevel 1 = Minor use, nothing combat-wiseLevel 2 = Somewhat useful, or powerful with severe limitations. Espers at this level augment their normal abilities with it.Level 3 = Pretty good, about the level of a gun at low end to a rocket launcher at the high end (if you're a combat type). You're an elite here.Level 4 = About the level of a tank or attack helicopter. The best of the best can take on large forces.Level 5 = Able to take on armies at the low end, near-Gods at the high endLevel 6 = Omnipotence, universe restructuring, that kind of fun stuff.
>>33362082>>33362087>>33362139>>33362168Index>>33362132>>33362141>>33362249>>33362324ToshinoAh whatever, I'm gonna merge these.
>>33362290The system scan tells you your current level at the time, but also records information on your potential level. Students are not told their potential level, but companies are, so they obtained her DNA knowing it had the potential to be Level 5.As for the levels they're fairly vague. The only time esper powers around level 3 are shown are actually in combat. The fire guy in the first episode of Railgun, the guys that became level 3 with the level upper. I'd assume it'd more;Level 0 - WorthlessLevel 1 - Neat, but limited real life use - i.e Uiharu keeping her baked goods warm.Level 2 - Every day applications, picking up the stuff on the floor for TK, Hightened awareness or responses - The sisters could move the windmills and stuff, but never really used their electricity to fight.Level 3 - Low-level Combat - That Kyril is at the moment, we move shit and crush people with our power, but we'd get pwned against organized opponentsLevel 4 - High level combat - could probably easily fight armed squads/ strong robots/ groups of weak espers.Level 5 - Lol wut. You're gonna get Pwned, considered far beyond level 4s even at the lower scale.You also have consider the fact the levels are exponential.
>>33362417>Level 0 = UselessNot always. Sometimes 0s are more useful than a lot of 1s, but they're harder to test or quantify or you're just on the scientist's shitlist and you're not valuable enough to tolerate so they give you a big middle finger in the form of lv0 status.
>>33362417>>33362524Thank you, based anons the MC for the quest I've got in mind is probably mid-level 3, then, with potential to reach mid-to-high level four how does an insane level 3 pyrokineticist lady of tokiwadai sound to you, anon? Could a level three/four esper get away with murder? Misaka seems to get away with some pretty extreme shenanigans
>>33362505Just according to keikaku
>>33362571Depends. If it's some nobody level 0, probably.Anyone actually important, she'll either be killed (unlikely, Crowley needs Espers to make AIM for him), forced to start working for the city (likely), or sent to the Reformatory (equally likely).
>>33362571>how does an insane level 3 pyrokineticist lady of tokiwadai sound to you, anon? It sounds like you're going to have your work cut out for you when it comes to making all the things the players vote for be in character. People don't really vote for actions that fit with the disorder unless it's without consequences.
>>33362571First things first, that quest idea sounds AWESOME, go for it. As far as murder, level 5s are basically unaccountable to anyone short of the Board of Directors, but a level 3 probably couldn't pull it off and a level 4 would need some dark side contacts and probably a patron like ITEM (and even then, they had the benefit of being led by a level 5). Just my 2 cents, though.
>>33362565Hmm true actually, forgot about Tsuchimikado. Level 0 are those who are 'Worthless' aka Saten, Hamazura, and those they don't understand aka Touma and Tsuchimikado.
>>33362638>>33362565There are also those who have control over it but it's worthless. There's one level 0 TK girl who can move individual particles.
>>33362638Touma is a Level 0 because IB negates his AIM field, preventing him from manifesting his actual Esper powers. Also, I'm still convinced that /a/'s Hamazura Probability Manipulation theory is correct.
>>33362677>TK that precise>Worthless in ACOh come on. There's no way she couldn't pull a gig working on nanomachines.
>>33362694>Also, I'm still convinced that /a/'s Hamazura Probability Manipulation theory is correct.I'd be fucking shocked if it wasn't.
>>33362633>>33362622>>33362619 I'm just trying to account for all possibilities, hereI fully expect the anons to either direct their insanity towards good and join Judgement or somesuch, or bide their time whilst doing terrible, horrible thingsHopefully, once I get my grasp on the universe tightened down a bit more, I can get started!should I hit up qtg or something for advice? I've heard it's cancer>>33362638>powers that aren't rate-able are also level 0got it>>33362677>future god-tier chemical engineer detected
>>33362571Honestly, it sounds like a bad idea. Players would really struggle with the disorder, and you'd end up with something like a NORG quest.Problem 2 is that is doesn't seem like someone that would be in Tokiwadai. There's mentions of them rejecting a level 3 princess from entering the school, so to have someone insane enter instead, who doesn't even have level 5 abilities seems incorrect.>>33362717Could be, but luck is magic. It's unlikely an esper could control it.
>>33362743Espers alter probability anyways in order for their powers to function. This power would just do this specifically.>>33362742Whatever you do, don't rely on the wiki too much. It has a dreadful tendency to be either inaccurate or far too general in it's descriptions and explanations.
>>33362743>Could be, but luck is magic. It's unlikely an esper could control it.Think Probability Theory, not Luck.
>>33362742Anon I do not suggest you go to the hugbox. There are a couple of people who know the Raildex better than I residing there.>>33362797The wiki is better than type-MOON's at least. Best bet is to read the novels and as much canon material as you can.
>>33362743 would it be at all possible for them to continue going to another school after getting higher in level? Would Tokiwadai snatch them up?I feel like anons are far too clever for a plan to account for their actions, and I don't wanna be like 'you're a level five now, but you still go to (insert generic middle school here)' I guess the story starts out in summer anyways, so maybe they could have attending Tokiwadai be a longer-term goal or something? Being a fresh-out-of-elementary-school student would probably help to justify the room for potential growth in their power, wouldn't it? I'm super nervous and I really don't wanna screw this up>I just realized that that Queen lady's mind control remote thingie didn't work on Misaka and that wasn't explaineddoes Misaka have complete control over the firing of her own brain waves? that's crazy
>>33362877*I suggestI do not suggest going to qtg except for the pastebin.
>>33362882There's always Accelerator's school, Nagatenjouki. They beat Tokidawai in alot of things, though they're also extremely frustrated as they haven't been able to make a Level 5.And no, she just constantly emits a powerful EM field. Misaki's power works through EM waves, so it's blocked. Though she could probably control her own brain waves if she wanted, she's got the calculation power.
>>33362882>>I just realized that that Queen lady's mind control remote thingie didn't work on Misaka and that wasn't explainedYeah it was. Something about electrical field blah blah makes it not work. Queen tries it on her just for giggles, knowing that it won't work, and all that happens is there's a big shower of sparks.
>>33362882I assume it's because Misaki manipulates the electrical signals in the brain or something half-arsed like that, and since Misaka is an electro-master it doesn't work because she has total control over hers. As for the Schools, its never really explained. Tokiwadai is a middleschool, but still competes with Nagatenjouki, which is a high-school. Personally I'd see it in the same manner as soccer clubs, you'll go to say middle-school A, but if you start growing rapidly, middle-school B might try to buy the contract to teach you.
>>33362877>>33362896Aye-aye, captain!What's this 'hugbox' you speak of?I'll find the novels immediately!>>33362924Sounds like a plot hook to me...Is it a middle school or a high school? (Accelerator must be really tall if he's a middle schooler)>haven't been able to make a level 5Accelerator's always been level five, right? 's why he's so pasty an' scrawny an' such, right?>>33362979>>33362945So, would a pyrokineticist constantly radiate heat, then?
>>33362979>>33362945>>33362924>>33362882Gotta love the manga.
As you came out of the toilet you had already decided. Quickly excusing yourself outside for a bit, you check in on Touma’s roommate, Index. You found her staring at the wall, contemplating something. Of course your entry had prompted her to greet you.“I need more paper,” she said seriously.“I can see that,” you replied, “You’re not really running out of material are you?”“I think I could squeeze some more out of the saga of Dalian and Huey,” she answered, “Do I need to decipher another spell from the Second Progenitor?”“No, I was wondering if you’d mind some company, you know, like an editor or proof-reader?”“It is kind of boring without Touma around,” she finally admitted.“Great, I’ll be right back.”You called up Toshino to meet up in your dorms with as much paper she could afford to buy. Before she could protest you said you would compensate her for it. She was also going to have to do some babysitting today but she didn’t grumble much about that. All in all, your plan was to have Last Order play with Index and Toshino to look after them. You didn’t trust Index and Last Order to not get in trouble. There was absolutely nothing that could go wrong with this.With that settled it was time to get down to business.“Alright lads, what have you got?”“Two things,” Sagara started, “One, a girlfriend, and two, a way in to their main office.”“As for me,” Kyousuke eyed Sagara suspiciously, “I’ve got some rumours, could be solid info though. They’ve got their fingers in some pretty shady stuff.”“Well I got some facilities we could hit,” you added, “The question is what lead should we investigate first?”>Sagara’s way in>Kyousuke’s intel>Toulour’s facilities
>>33363033It's a high school. Accelerator isn't an actual student there, and is just there on paper. They had no hand in creating him, which frustrates them. They had a project called Military Alligator that mass-produced Level 4s instead of Level 5s, since 4s are less crazy in general. Worked pretty well.And yeah, it's mentioned that pryokineticists heat up the air around them all the time. Komoe (the little girl teacher) is actually an expert in the subject, she's written papers about them.
>>33363102Ah shit, it's White Alligator, sorry.>>33363059>Toulour's facilities
>>33363059>>Kyousuke’s intelShould see what we've got at hand, would likely help us prepare and know what to look for later on site.
>>33363059>Sagara's girlfriendI'll believe it when I see it, comrade>>33363102'Military alligator' good name>>33363123oh, I guess that's a slightly less straightforward name>Komoe-sensei knows her shit I regret her non-existence wholeheartedly Pyrokineticists are probably pretty common, though, right? I feel like that'd be a pretty good motivation for the anons- 'there are currently 440 pyrokineticists of equal or greater skill in AC' or somethingmaybe do a Rocky IV and have a level 4/5 whomp them a little bit early on?
>>33363220Well, level 3 can do this. I'll show level 4 in the next post.
>>33363220>>33363259And here's a level 4 pyro.
>>33363305>>33363259More Level 4.
>>33363259>>33363305>>33363332hmmI can definitely see whomp-potential here
>>33363305>>33363332Uh wasn't that a level 2 pyro connected to machines and some magic and a robot? I've not really read any of the Accel manga
>>33363485Yeah, they're called Coffins. You put a dead Esper in them and presto, the machine can use their power at an upgraded level.This girl got upgraded from 2 to 4. At least, Accelerator said a level 4 would be required for it.
>>33363378Reminds me of those "How to kill Accel" threads where people were bringing up a Level 5 Uiharu.
>>33363485>>33363526>magic>'coffins'Sounds like heresy to mewould a fanatical devotion to science be an acceptable mindset?Purging heretical magic users seems like something /tg/ could get behind...>>33363555Level 5 Uiharu>people are food>the earth's atmosphere is a container>CONVECTION, BITCHI like it
>>33363596Sounds great. So she'd know about and hate the magic side?Honestly someone with that mindset would probably just work for the city. Actually, that'd be kind of interesting. Play as one of the bad guys. Though she wouldn't be a bad guy from her own perspective. Also, the "coffin" ain't magic. Probably. Maybe.
>>33363596Possibly. But honestly the idea of Magic even existing is so foreign to Espers, that even when they see it they rationalize it as something else. Accel for example sees a chick using Magic and just goes "Huh, much be using history and tradition to back up her Personal Reality". And after the attack on AC at the end of Index 2, it's rationalized as 'Huh, the Chuch is starting it's own esper development.'
>>33363675Accelerator managed to pick up magic knowledge pretty well though, especially once someone sat down and explained it to him. Fighting the actual Archangel Gabriel probably helped.Mikoto knows about it as well, she just doesn't understand it since no one has explained it to her.
>>33363596>I like itSadly, heat doesn't work on Accell at all. He once dropped down from a plane and landed on a pool of molten rock. Didn't give a shit and just stood there making a phone call for a while.
>>33363661>What kind of 'position' would she have, then?Would she just be a vigilante that the city would tolerate?>>33363675Depending on how the players want to rationalize it, it could be anything from 'these assholes are some strange Espers who want our Glorious City to burn' to 'these guys are breaking the way things work; let's BREAK THEM'>I'm now considering how Kamijou could be portrayed as a bad dude, punching Accelerator and dunking on Misaka and suchI'm smiling my evil smile right now
>>33363697He also probably gained a better understanding after going Angel Mode, since he even managed to tank Fiamma's continent-destroying blast.
>>33363769>'these guys are breaking the way things work; let's BREAK THEM'Oh the irony.
>>33363697The key to these is that someone explained it. Misaka was also told. On their own, they just don't comprehend. >>33363769Kamijou is a villain. He tells people they're living their life incorrectly, and afterwards says "Well, lol if you asked for help first I would have been on your side." He also never looks at the greater picture, and is ruled solely by his emotions. Also he sides with a villain who destroyed the world, and tortured him so meh already pretty villain.
>>33363808>ironyAnon, are you implying that people throwing fire and redirecting vectors and teleporting all over the place aren't things that go along with the way things work?'Cause that sounds like HERESY to meall I know is that circles and runes don't glow here in MY city
>>33363769Rationalizing it ain't much of an issue. Most of the city doesn't know about magic perse, but alot of the people who go out into the world know that there's a certain 'something' off that isn't scientific.Hell, Anti-Skill had entire armor divisions wiped out by Gabriel. The survivors know that wasn't a fucking Esper. American Marines fought magicians in Hawaii. Othinus was known to be a non-Esper threat.It wouldn't be difficult for the MC of the quest to understand that there's 'something' wrong.>>33363866It's kind of hilarious. Touma even admitted he doesn't believe alot of the shit he says in his speeches, he just says them to get people to stop being dicks.
>>33363866>Kamijou is a villain./a/ has at one point entertained the notion of Kamijou picking up Kiritsugu's methodology as he grows in to adulthood. The Railgun and Shirai are his Javert.
>>33363956>His right hand always regenerates>Cut off right hand, grind bones down and mix them into bullets>Grow new right hand>Anti-magic bulletsOf course this doesn't actually work, the old IB would just degrade. Still fun to think about.
“Hah, I’ll believe it when I see her,” Tadakuni sniped at Sagara.“That just breaks my heart,” Sagara replied sarcastically.“Kyousuke, tell me more about what they’ve been up to,” you ignored the bant.“For one, you remember how they have all those suits yeah?” you nodded, “They have to put them somewhere. A few of my friends were looking around some of their storage places and noticed that it was being emptied out. Rumours say that ITEM was also called in, but no one knows why.”You had a map spread out with the facilities marked.“Where exactly did they store them, maybe we can look around there for some records.”Kyousuke marked over two facilities.“The one ITEM was supposedly called into was supposedly a derelict,” he added a note.“I do have a question or two,” Asuka finally spoke, “If they are moving all those suits out, where are they going and for what purpose?”“Is it really relevant to the job though?” Tadakuni asked, “They can’t have enough people to man them all. Hell Anti-Skill and MAR combined don’t.”“He’s right but we can’t discount that we may encounter powered suits working security,” you weighed in, “We’re not exactly looking for a fight.”“Says you,” Asuka interrupted.“Well most of us aren’t,” you continued, “We should split up, raid their warehouses and look for clues. If that doesn’t work we can go with Sagara’s way in.”“Sounds like a plan then,” Tadakuni rubbed his hands together.>Raid the derelict facility>Raid the warehouseSplit up your team if you wish
>>33364005>>Raid the derelict facility
>>33364005>Raid the warehouse
>>33364005Oh I wonder if they're using this secret artificial esper to control suits.....>Raid the derelict facilityoooO I wanna meet Mugino.
>>33364005>Raid the Derelict FacilityKyril and Asuka are the bare minimum here, since they're more suited for combat vs. small groupsI don't know about the others
>>33360694I have now officially reserved this picture for this quest just becuase of shit like this
>>33363220Here's a power chart if you need help finding good characters to fight. Not updated for NT 10 though.
>>33363893I see someone isn't living his life correctly.
>>33364005>>Raid the derelict facilityBandwagon is a thing.
>>33364169>hehehehe>I'm taking notes already~>>33364181I see a hereticor maybe a terrorist?I guess terrorist sounds a lot less religious, doesn't it?'CEASE AND DESIST, TERRORIST SCUM. PREPARE FOR IMMEDIATE TERMINATION.'
>>33364576That's generally what AC calls magicians when they're fucking around and trying to warn people about them.Though alot of Magicians actually are terrorists basically, so there's that.
>>33364745Good, good...Does AC have some sort of lower-key anti-terrorist esper force or anything of the sort?Does anyone know if there are laws against cybernetic implants/augmentations?
>>33364805>CyborgsNo laws against them, though so far only dark side characters have extreme modifications. Umidori for example can shoot nitrogen spears out of her hands, so she had thousands of cyborg hands installed. It's mentioned they require massive amounts of maintenance, surgery, and upkeep. Umidori says it sucks balls. It can be about as extreme as you want though. Rensa for example is literally just the bare minimum amount of the brain necessary to create a Personal Reality. Everything else is mechanical.>Anti-terrorist esper forceSort of. Organizations like GROUP, SCHOOL, BLOCK, ITEM. Generally Espers handle inner city stuff while Anti-Skill handles foreign matters. Some exceptions though.
>>33364805Not really. Their only internal policing is Judgement, which is more looking after lost kids than fighting. Shirai is a terrible example. They leave fighting to Anti-skill who are generally part-timers. I assume any serious terrorist stuff is monitored by satellite and they send dark side organizations like ITEM or SCHOOL to deal with it before it even occurs. Magic sides tend to not get involved in AC unless they're rogue terrorists, because Aleister will fuck them up.
>>33364970>>33364980Right. So implants providing situational analysis and dermal fireproofing would require lots of maintenance and upkeep and would serve as an excellent leash for more black-ops-y kinds of forces...... I think I'm gonna run out and buy a new notebook real quickthat's a lot of organizations to keep track of
>>33364805>>33364970Mugino goes partially cyborg after she loses to Hamazura. They replace her eye and an arm, but I guess it's probably super expensive to do, cause the only people they bother with are high-leveled combat espers.
>>33364980Anti-Skill can kind of be divided into two categories.The teachers who actually teach and just patrol the city for the extra pay and to be a good Samaritan. They're the ones who generally police Espers.Then there's the Anti-Skill who got the bare minimum requirement to become a teacher, and operate AC's military. Their subs, air force, tanks, powered suits. All that fun stuff. They don't actually teach anyone.
>>33365042A pyrokineticist doesn't necessarily require fireproofing. Most Espers are immune to their own power. Mugino is considered strange for not being immune to hers.
“Kyousuke, are you absolutely, positively sure that ITEM are gone?” you asked.The time is now afternoon, the weather is sunny, and the date remains unchanged.“They should be,” his answer didn’t engender much confidence.“Que sera, sera,” Asuka added in sing-song.Of course your girlfriend was hoping for some trouble. All of you had decided to check out the derelict facility. If it was derelict there really shouldn’t be any security left. If ITEM were called in for some cleanup then there definitely was not going to be. All you had to do was hope that they were doing some clean up and not guarding the facility.“Hold up,” Sagara spoke, “I’m catching intermittent activity inside.He had held his hand to the wall. The building itself had gaps in the wall, gaps that you were exploiting. Sagara’s skill came in handy here.“What does it sound like?” you asked.“One person, some typing, I can’t distinguish it with all this noise.”“Can’t be ITEM right?” you enquired further, “I thought this was supposed to be abandoned.”“It’s abandoned alright,” Sagara continued, “I’m picking up wrecked suits all over the place, some of them are still running but they’re physically inert.”“So what’s the plan boss?” Tadakuni looked raring to go.“Kyousuke I want you on the roofs, get eyes on the building. Tadakuni, scout ahead, look for our mystery person,” he saluted you and hopped in, “Asuka and I will check out the rest, Sagara can you stay here and track everyone?”“Should be no problem, we’ll keep in touch,” he gave you a thumbs up.Asuka drew her sword and you checked your hand gun once more before stepping to the facility.>Investigate the powered suits>Check the offices for records>Follow Tadakuni’s path
>>33365059She also got shot through the chest like 10 times, they probably had to replace her lungs at least.
>>33365115>>Check the offices for records
>>33365115>Investigate the powered suits
I've been catching up on this quest on the archive and I've got to ask. Did anything ever come of Asuka murdering Kyril, to the point that his heart had to be restarted via electric shock, all because she got caught wearing a maid uniform?
>>33364169Where would be Kyril in that power chart?>>33364576should we expect some "A Certain Academic City Quest" cameos?
>>33365115>Check the offices for records
>>33365193Between Frenda and your standard Sister probably.
>>33365193Alongside the Sisters, probably above Touma, considering we've had some combat training.
>>33365233Touma's position actually isn't relevant on this chart. He's kind of impossible to place due to the way his powers work. The blue border means he's just placed there for the sake of aesthetics. Also we could beat Touma as he is now, if we fought Touma late in the series i'd be concerned.
>>33365115>Check the offices for recordsLet's try to establish a paper trail first.
>>33365278I think our powerset is almost ideal to combat Touma. We have the ability to manipulate shit at range, and could just drop a car on him or something. Also considering later Touma, implies later in the story-line, where we'd also have a power-up, and we get our proper training from Teacher.
>>33365350The main issue with fighting Touma isn't even his powers, it's that he's such a dirty fucking fighter, holy shit. He gets kinda scary honestly.
>>33365430If you recall the Angel Fall Arc, Tsuchimikado beats Touma up and states "Yeah, you're a street fighter and you're pretty good, but that's nothing compared to a trained professional." He's not that great, and would have been beaten by Hound Dogs. We've had some basic training with Yomikawa and Teacher said he'd teach us. Also we could just shoot him with our gun.
>>33365528I don't mean dirty fighter as in street fighting. I mean the way he controls a situation.>Guy with gun knows he's coming>Something in the ducts, guy won't fall for this shit, he's smart, shoots>"Fucking boiling coffee in my eyes!">Getting his ass kicked by Thor>"Wow, when did we get onto TRAIN TRACKS?">Needs to get past military convoy>"Hey Lessar, mind handing me that magic glove?">"Sure thing, what do you need it fo-you fucking bombed them with math, what the shit.">Guy with a knife>"Wow look at this, i've got your arm in a lock. I wonder what that knife will do to your guts if I press down."
>>33365669For you know, he had to resort to smack talking POTUS when a SEAL team curb stomp him in the latest LN.
>>33365170Nope. The price was right for seeing such a sight.
>>33365669That last one is a terrible example, because it's purely a fighting maneuver. Also, have you not seen our fights? We slammed and industrial bin into someone, and then took a levitating hammer to their face.
>>33365859Yeah, he couldn't take on a sneak attack by a SEAL team while he was trying not to get killed by 50 tanks.It's not a great shock.
>>33365104Hmm. Alrighty then. >>33365193Probably, yeah. References at the very least, but I'm sure we'll run into a few cast members here and there...
First things first, you had the check the offices, hell maybe even their server room if they had one. Tadakuni should be fine for the most part and it wasn’t like the powered suits were going to be of any use to you. It did bring up the question of where STUDY found enough suicidal guinea pigs to pilot them if they were as mangled as Sagara made them out to be. Maybe it was worth checking out later. For now though you were content to search the rest of the building with Asuka. The both of you had your weapons out though both were lowered.Most the computers were trashed, stolen or only half functioning. The ones that did didn’t have much data on them but you did figure out where the central server was though. You did notice some cabinets that were easily pried open with The Dean. No shipping manifests though, there were only manufactory reports. If there was anything to be said about STUDY it was that they were industrious. The server however yielded more information. They didn’t make sense to you see as it was just a bunch of numbers. Asuka however seemed to glean some kind of information from it.“These are coordinates, we’re going to run them through a mapping program later,” she started jotting them down, “The other numbers could be anything though.”The both of you took note of as much as you could. There wasn’t a USB port at the terminal for some reason.“Kyril we have a problem,” Kyousuke messaged in, “Looks like someone just arrived in a van. I can’t see him too well but he definitely went in.”“I can confirm that, he’s heading towards our mystery guest,” Sagara added.“And Tadakuni?”“He went silent,” was Sagara’s reply, “I can’t hear him when he uses his Ability.”Obviously.>”We need to leave while we can.”>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”
>>33366147>>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”
>>33366147>We need to leave while we can.
>>33366064I'm not sure how to feel about this. This is going to be a separate continuity I hope.
>>33366147>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”We might be able to get info from the encounter between the two.
>>33366147>>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”Intercept, the mystery person is ours.
>>33366147>>”We need to leave while we can.”
>>33366147>”We need to leave while we can.”Let's not risk it if we can help it.
>>33366064Is there going to be JUSTICE?
>>33366147>>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”Stick around to back up Tadakuni, hopefully he can spy on them, but keep our distance, we don't want to blow it for him. Try and get a quick peek to make sure he hasn't already been caught.
Coolfax:If Kyril works on his stability (holding up LO was unsteady, but she wasn't exactly trying to stay still) he could levitate and accelerate 70kg (probably close to his own weight if not a bit high) zero to 60 in 1.18 seconds, that's 2.32Gs. (this requires 15.8m of track or 'barrel' to go with our previous terminology). The Bugatti Veyron Supersport is 2.46 seconds.This is dependent on his ability to apply constant force to a moving object, which might be trivial if his own body is the reference point for his power, but we don't have much to go on with how his 'point of force' moves.I find it amusing that, working with Kyril's power, acceleration is much more important than for Accelerator's.
>>33366304Accelerator can just arbitrarily change the magnitude value of a vector to whatever he wants. He gets to be lazy.
>>33366147>”Let’s stick around for a little longer.”What's the worst that could happen?>>33366201Of course it is!I'm thinking 'running into a young man with remarkable hearing' and 'noticing a strange red-headed girl carrying a sack and eating pocky' type things. Devils left in the details or what-have-you. I've also considered gender-swapping a few canon characters just to mix things up. Fem!Accelerator or Fem!Kamijou or something.Probably not Fem!Kamijou, though. Don't wanna make the terrorists too sympathetic, after all.>>33366263>Is there going to be JUSTICE?Is Accelerator mad OP?>>33366304Not really- at least, not when you consider that any change in a vector is an acceleration, it isn't.
>>33366348That doesn't not sound very appealing. Leave the source as it is and mess with the situations rather than the characters.
>>33366180>>33366203>>33366205>>33366268>>33366348>>33366401Let's stay>>33366182>>33366229>>33366256Let's leave
>>33366471Alright! I appreciate the advice- otherwise I wouldn't be asking questions, after all!Should the MC work for a new organization, or would that be too much of a deviation? I'm thinking purging Skill-Out would be a good starting point for anti-terrorism shenanigans- unless there's a reason for it to exist that matters in the future? I can't recall anything atm, but my in-universe knowledge is full of holes.
>>33366624First things first, brush up on that setting knowledge before you run anything, that's a pretty big issue. As far as Skill-Out goes, I think as long as Capacity Down still gets tested or you have another way to do that in mind you should be good to clear them out.
>>33366624The militaristic Skill-Out was purged by Accelerator and Awaki in canon. All that's left after that are remnants of them, and groups that aren't really serious/can't do any damage. Their new leader Hattori is competent enough, but he's mainly good at making sure they hide.She could either come in before that or mop up the remnants though. Or slaughter the idiot Skill-Out.And a new organization would be fine. Though so would joining a current one.Though as >>33366673 said, the setting is fairly complex, especially if you're going to be a science side character focusing on taking down the magic side.
>>33366673Capacity Down's the anti-esper sound system, right?Wasn't that developed by the crazy bitch?I'm trying to remember now, but was she opposed to Anti-Skill and Judgement and such? She headed a search and rescue type thing, didn't she?i.e., was she a terrorist?If so, then getting rid of Capacity Down would be priority for any force deploying espersIf not, then Capacity Down would be a key weapon against terroristic threats utilizing esper powers.
>>33366833AC itself utilizes Anti-Esper systems. The Reformatory (Esper prison) has methods to disperse AIM and weaken Espers (though it still has the highest fatality rate out of every job in AC, besides maybe Hound Dogs). They don't use them more widely because they require huge amounts of power, so they can only protect static locations. The Board of Directors generally guard their homes with similar devices as well.Therestina was disavowed by AC, yes. Capacity Down isn't really anything bad though. AC uses it in 19 I think.
>>33366906Hmm. Is there a timeline anywhere I can reference?I mean, I'm sure there is, but, yanno, any recommendations?
>>33367025Sure, here.http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Index_CalendarThis verse is way beyond the level where we can answer all your questions though anon. Just kind of have to get into it. There's...alot.
>>33367063Ah, delicious~And, I know, I knowI just need to have a better idea of who/what to keep track of, I guess
“Let’s stick around, they might know something,” you made the call, “Tadakuni, where you at?”“Right on top of them boss,” he whispered back, “I’ll catch what I can then bug out.”“Good, we’re still working on our end, holler if something happens.”With that you continued to assist Asuka in physically transcribing some of the terminal’s data. There was recurring coordinates so those were the ones you prioritised. Along with the numbers you had a history of their movements of what you assumed were powered suits, across the city.“Kyril we have more incoming,” Kyousuke added.Goddamnit what now?“The guys in the van are getting out, looks like salvage tools.”There went the chance to check out the powered suits you mused. Only five minutes later did you finish. Your way out was barred by the salvage technicians, which you heard loudly cursing as they tried to get their machines to work. Sagara didn’t have much trouble keeping track of them but they were making a bit of a ruckus. Both you and Asuka took a more roundabout path towards the exit. It also led you closer to the mysterious person at the console.“Shit boss you won’t believe this, it’s Nunotaba,” Tadakuni probably figured it out from the sound of her voice, “I think the one she’s talking to is arguing with her.”“Should we bail her out, as they say?” Asuka asked.She was probably looking forward to cracking some skulls. From where you were you could make out the figure point a handgun towards a room which you assumed Nunotaba was in. Tadakuni said he was right on top of them so that probably meant the vents. There were loose objects lying around though so you could distract him. Or you could knock him out.>Leave her>Engineer a distraction>Knock him out>Let Asuka off the leash
>>33367180>>Let Asuka off the leash
>>33367092Also fair warning, early LN translations can get pretty awkward. Gets better later on and evens out, but early volumes can be painful at times.
>>33367180>Let Asuka off the leash
>>33367180>Engineer a distractionLet's at least try to be quiet for once.
>>33367180>Knock him outUse that TK son. Slam the gun into his head.
>>33367180>CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP OUR GIRLFRIENDBut let's cover her and make sure she doesn't get capped again.>>33367288I'm beginning to notice that now, yeah.
>>33367180>>Knock him out
You gave Asuka a look. She was eager, of that you were sure. The Dean’s red glow seemed to intensify as well. If she wanted this then you really didn’t feel like stopping her. You gave her a nod and a pat on the back. Then she was off. Not faster than you could blink but it was as amazingly fast as ever. You were hot on her heels though much too far. The safety came off as you made sure to watch her back.She didn’t cut him down immediately. His reaction was slow as she slapped his arm hard with the flat of her blade. Upon closer inspection you recognised his face. Aritomi Haruki, supposed CEO of STUDY and two time consecutive winner of the ACRE Assembly best project award, lost grip of his pistol. It has hard to hold on to it given how his arm had snapped at such an awkward angle. At least he had the sense to back off further down the hall, yelling for help as he did so.“The salvage guys are heading your way,” Sagara needlessly informed.Aritomi had fallen flat on his arse and was backing up as fast he could. The broken arm and the terror on his face seemed to egg Asuka on. You walked past an inwardly confused Nunotaba, gun ready.“Fuck, fuck, who are you working for,” he wasn’t exactly grovelling just yet, “I’ll you double.”He was stalling.“Shall I kill him dear?” Asuka asked.“He’s the CEO,” Asuka pouted, “But you can deal with the other two as you wish.”She brightened at that and continued down the hall. Sagara was directing her now. You turned back to your unexpected windfall.“Is that what you want? Money? I got that,” okay now he was grovelling.You needed information. You were going to get it. It was just a question of how rough you wanted to be.>Softer than the softest sofa at the soft sofa store>Ask him normally>Jack Bauer interrogation techniqueWrite-in your questions
Who's up for setting fire to the building?
>>33367904Calm down Stiyl.
>>33367881>Jack BauerLet's start with breaking fingers.
>>33367881>Jack Bauer interrogation techniqueWhen dealing with people accustomed to being untouchable you must destroy their belief of safety.
>>33367881>>Softer than the softest sofa at the soft sofa storeGood cop bad cop. He best spill before Asuka finishes with the others.
>>33367881>>Jack Bauer interrogation techniqueWhat are you doing with all these suits?
>>33367963Adding to this, some questions to ask are: Where are the Chemicaloids, why is he here, and what did he hope to accomplish by threatening this lady. Don't mention Nunotaba's name at any point.
>>33367881>>Ask him normally
>>33367904>>33367958... Soon.Well, probably, anyways.>>33367916Are fire mages immune to fire, too?
>>33368110If they are, that just means you aren't using enough fire.
>>33368110Only their own.If you want to read a Fire mage vs. Fire mage fight, read the Stiyl Magnus side story. He goes up against another fire mage named Richard. It's actually pretty intense.
>>33368125I like the way you think, anon.I wish there was a bit more in the way of information as to the numbers and sciencey bits of pyrokinesis.I'm not sure about the specifics, yanno? Range/temperature/energyThe wiki page is basically like "Pyrokinetists are dudes who set shit on fire, yo"
>>33368184There aren't any major characters who are pyrokinetics is the issue. Probably because Kamachi figures he already has Stiyl. All that stuff would vary by Esper though.Stiyl has some cool abilities if you're interested in that. Creating mirages, detecting enemies via their body heat, using the smoke from a cigarette to diagnose people, changing people's appearance by burning their faces and healing it into a different face. He's way more than just a guy who throws around fire.
>>33368258B-but that's magic stuffand that's HERESYI'm just bellyaching 'cause the exact specifications of Misaka's railgun are in the first freakin' chapter of the manga, and all the wiki has on pyros is that there are two of them and one of them was dead when the series startedI'm thinking pyrokinesis is probably mostly gonna involve setting things on fire, throwing fire at stuff, making things hot, sensing hot things and fire, and probably also applying fire to as many situations as possiblecooler stuff can come along at level four, I think
>>33368258>We will never Bro around AC with StiylWhy even exist?
>>33368353>You'll never consort with a DANGEROUS TERRORISTGlad to hear it
>>33368388Terrorism is indeed bad.Why can't the rest of the world just understand that glorious SCIENCE is the answer to all their problems? Sure, AC invaded a few nations. Killed some civilians. Who hasn't? That's all in the past.
>>33368422I know about 12.5% of A Certain's entire setting but im pretty sure the majority of problems are caused by SCIENCCCEEEE!
>>33368519>Get a load of this guyAnd by 'guy', I obviously mean POTENTIAL TERRORIST
>>33368519Well maybe if they stopped worshiping their monkey gods and started worshiping HARD SCIENCE, Academy City wouldn't have to kill so many of them.
>>33368564>Potential TerroristOh shit anon it's oncome at me you puppet
>>33368608BURN, HERETICI MEAN, TERRORIST
So. Aritomi's seen us now, and knows we're fucking with his shit. How are we getting out of this, because I'd like to not kill people... again. Can Asuka command someone to forget things?
You picked up his gun and heft them casually as you approached. No need to let him know you were a Telekinetic just yet. Funnily enough it was a M1911 as well, though it looked newer. You had them both him and Nunotaba under the gun.“I need information,” you started.“What do you want to know?”You smashed the butt of your gun down on his face.“I’m asking the questions here,” you asserted, “What are you doing with all those suits?”“We just make them.”“Wrong answer.”You grabbed his broken arm and brought your foot down on it. His screams of pain were ignored.“I got a bunch of delivery manifests to say you know where they’re going,” you lifted your foot slowly, “Think carefully. What are you doing with all those suits?”“We were setting them up for security around the ACRE Assembly,” he replied quickly now.“Sounds like bullshit to me,” you asked Nunotaba instead, “What’s his game toots?”“He wants to attack to ACRE Assembly,” she answered evenly.“Fucking traitorous bitch,” he snarled despite the pain.You turned his own gun on his other hand. Now both of them were out of action. He was probably here because of her but as to the specifics well,“I don’t like liars. What’s she done?”“She fucking betrayed us.”Your foot applied itself slowly on his ruined arm.“Be more specific.”“She stole something from us.”“Something like a Chemicaloid?”His eyes widened. You raised your gun again so he nodded quickly.“Where is it?”“I don’t know, she stole it.”“Did you?” you asked Nunotaba again.“It was just a spare,” she answered evenly, “He has the original.”Aritomi didn’t need knees at the moment. He started sobbing now.“Where is the original Chemicaloid?”“It’s…it’s,” was all he managed between the sobs.[1/2]
>>33368726We could put him in a coma. That's not immediately lethal.
>>33368726>>33368766>Commanding someone to forget thingsWhy not just command him not to tell anyone about this?
>>33368735“Dear you need to be a bit more gentle next time,” Asuka returned, “The other two have been disposed of.”There wasn’t much blood on her dress so you assumed she hadn’t hacked them to bits. It appears Aritomi had lost consciousness as well. He was still breathing though.“We need to leave,” she continued, “Anti-Skill are on their way.”“You have killed them I hope,” you added.“They are still breathing,” she replied, “I can hypnotise him.”“Sell him off to Toulour,” Nunotaba suggested, “三, three days and already I am sick of his band of buffoons.”“Hey Kyril I think I hear sirens,” Kyousuke added.>Take him to Toulour>Leave him here
>>33368835>>Take him to Toulour
>>33368835>Leave him hereToulour might end up getting info about that original chemicaloid, which from the sounds of it is a bad thing.
>>33368835>Take him to ToulourHe might be worth something, and if not at least we can get answers out of him.
>>33368835>>Take him to ToulourSure
>>33368835>Leave him hereLet's settle for some hypnosis, I don't entirely trust Toulour with the info he might get out of him.
>>33368835>Believe in the power of Asuka
>>33368835>Leave him hereMind-whammy time!
>>33368835I'd rather take him somewhere for further questioning ending in some level 4 brainwashing.Selling him to Toulour sounds super fucked up.
>>33369002We could pick him up with TK and reenact Weekend at Bernies until we get to a safe location.I doubt he weighs more than 230kg.
>>33369002IndeedAfter all, we're a keeper, aren't we?>>33369040>He's secretly six-hundred pounds and we can't lift himI want this to be true more than I care to admit
Well you certainly weren’t going to sell him off. It was something you decided on and you weren’t going back on your word now. Funny, human trafficking was a no-no, but letting your girl friend abuse his poor mind was quite alright. Well you weren’t perfect.“He’s not going anywhere, Asuka, if you could be a dear.”“Certainly,” then she got to work.Aritomi’s pockets had a strange data stick that Nunotaba seemed eager to have. You let her keep it. There was also another magazine of .45 ACP in his coat which you pocketed for yourself. He didn’t needing his gun either. You also cleaned up after yourself, picking up the spent shell casings.“So what now?” you asked Nunotaba.“そう, there are two Chemicaloids,” she explained, “One is safe, the other I need you to help liberate.”“What’s with the data stick?”“別に, nothing important,” she answered, “After that, I shall take them away, keep them safe.”“And the planned attack on the ACRE Assembly?”“大丈夫, they need a Chemicaloid for it,” she assured, “I will give you the location of the facility. だが, they will powered suits as defences.”She emailed you an address.“I’ll figure something out,” you scratched your head.“Time to go dear,” Asuka was finished.Nodding, you took her hand and stepped out. The Problem Children left without another witness. All in all, it was a good day in your book. Your next course of action was to,>Sell Toulour some information>Regroup for some celebratory drinks>Check up on Last Order>Something else? (write-in)
>>33369789>Check up on Last Order
>>33369789>>Sell Toulour some information
>>33369789>Sell Toulour some informationCash first, then drinks. Other way round leads to bad things happening.
>>33369789You're welcome for the convenient life saving, Nunotaba. Anytime.
>>33369789>Sell Toulour some information>Check up on Last Order
>>33369789>Check up on Last OrderHopefully she and Kyouko haven't become canvases for Index's novel...
>>33369789>>>Sell Toulour some information
>>33369789>Sell Toulour some information
While drinks sounded good and checking in on Last Order was the most responsible thing to do, you rather sell Toulour some information. Besides, you don’t think you could conduct business while drunk and Toshino hadn’t called you so nothing terrible has happened yet. The lads were free to get themselves inebriated while you sold Toulour some info. Thankfully he didn’t ask you to meet up with him again when you were using the payphone.“Hello, how’s my favourite Torikov?” Toulour greeted you eagerly, “You have some information on the Chemicaloids?”He seemed chipper than yesterday too.“I do,” you replied, “But I have a bit of a problem here on my end.”“Well we’re obviously willing to pay for it. We’ll even let you get your own shot at it.”“Good because between me and the Chemicaloid is about several thousand remote controlled powered suits.”“That is a bit of a problem yes,” Toulour shuffled some papers in the background, “My advice is to get some firepower, or some real muscle. You remember Gage yeah?”“The arms dealer? I haven’t seen him yet,” you admitted.“I’ll let him know to give you some of the good stuff, but if you don’t want that then there’s always the option of hiring muscle.”“All I have to do is give you the info right?”“Well if you want more then I’m open to negotiate,” he seemed to shrug in the background.>Hook me up with Gage>Find me some muscle>Negotiate (write-in)>Table the deal for now
>>33370537I think /tg/ went to sleep Bored.>Hook me up with Gage
>>33370537>Find Sparky, get her on the jobShe can just zap fucking everything. Chain electrifity and all this stuff.
>>33370537>>Hook me up with GageWell I know I'd be sleeping if I could.

>>33370537Favorite Torikov? What happened to our mother?As much as I like >>33370602>Hook me up with GageInteresting interactions ahead.
>>33370602>>33370537>Find SparkyWorked pretty well in canon even with Febrie weighing her down, I see no reason why it wouldn't work now.
>>33370652She was poised to die in her second appearance, mate.
>>33370639Favours, cash, date with Touma, a chance of rescuing a little girl, all of the above, pick one.
>>33370676I meant in his heart, anon. In his heart.
>>33370537>>Hook me up with Gage
>>33370568I'm up, I'm up!I'm 7/70 chapters into the Railgun manga>>33370652He found out that she died, anon>>33370537>Table the deal for nowWe should consulte the others before deciding, I think
>>33370537Personally in this case I don't want to bring sparky in and getting hooked up with Gage could prove useful.
I think our meta knowledge of what happened is dulling our roleplay, maybe. Wouldn't Kyril be trying to follow up on that Ilyena package? Could at least ask if he can tell us who Riko is.
>>33370537>Find me some muscleSpray paint "Your waifu a shit. STUDY RULEZ!"On Accelerator doorSit backGet some tea And profit
>>33370848Made me chuckle/10
“I could always use some extra firepower,” you told him, “I think I can find my own muscle.”Toshino came to mind. If Asuka couldn’t take on that many powered suits, then maybe both her and Toshino could. Idly, you considered calling in Sparky but you weren’t sure how you could secure her services for something so dubiously illegal.“We’ll do that then, remember where he is?”“Yeah and here’s the info,” you concluded the deal, “By the way, how come I’m your favourite Torikov now?”“It’s kinda hard to be my favourite when you’re dead,” Toulour’s mood dropped.“You weren’t joking when you said my mother was your favourite were you?”“Of course not, she saved my life.”“Really?”“It’s a bit of a long story. Maybe I’ll tell you about it over lunch some day,” then he hung up.While you stood there listening to the dial tone for a good three seconds your mobile phone came to life. It was a message from Toshino. She wanted you to buy some panties before you returned home.What?Episode 51 End. Falling asleep here, we resume when I feel like it.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorMore gun. Kyril loves big boom. Will he lose his eyebrows again? When writefag and /tg/ meet, the story begins.This concludes this weekend's double billing. Good night and good luck gentlemen.
>>33371096And of course it drops off on an interesting note.Thanks for running.
>>33371096>She wanted you to buy some panties before you returned homeI feel like poor Kyouko-chan has been the victim of somethingWould 'JUSTICE' be a good name for an organization?
>>33371096I don't think we'd have to "recruit" Misaka per se, we can probably just tell her what STUDY's been up to, point her in their direction and watch the fireworks.
>>33371096>Will he lose his eyebrows again?Wait they came back?>>33371193If they're blind puppets then yes
>>33371238>His true power is eyebrow regrowth>if they're blind puppetsWhy wouldn't they be?
>>33371262>Why would they be They weren't living their lives correctly so they got Toumanned
>>33371303But Touma consorts with terroriststhat's not the correct way to live your life
>>33371322Hold still pls
thanks for running and archived.7 and 1/2 hour pathfinder game took most of my focus today.
>>33371303Alternatively Touma waifuedcone of them
>>33371236Misaka tends to not just jump in until someone causes trouble or she feels the need.
>>33370537>Find me some muscleAccelerator.
>>33371597About the only way I see this is if we told him how bugfuck stupid the plans where. Might piss him off enough to kill everything.
>>33371696"Ok, so get this. 'Robololi Overlords.' STUUDY actually wants to do it." He'd be off in a god damn flash to steal that loli.
>>33371696Or we use Asuka to somehow hypnotize the leaders of STUDY into some convoluted scheme where they place a ban on all coffee and music in the city
>>33371597>>33371696Why do you suppose Accelerator's so grumpy all the time?Is it 'cause he doesn't have a name?We should call him 'Steve' from now on. I'm kidding, of course or am I?
>>33371739Someone should tell him about masturbation
>>33372345We got a problem with that, doc.
>>33372345muh sides/10Stop giving me ideas, anon
