On the one hand, you’re glad to have escaped unscathed from the jaws of potential embarrassment. On the other, you’re not entirely sure what all of this means, if anything. Every so often you sneak little glances at Laura as she marches alongside you, the beads at the end of her braid bobbing up and down to the rhythm of her step. Her choice was an… interesting… one. She stared at the little baubles for a good long time, as if evaluating their every minute detail, before raising her hand in an awkward, tentative way kinda reminiscent of a sportsman flagging down a referee. Then she said, in an unfamiliar, halting tone: “Is it possible to choose the one that looks best?” The merchant couple responded by looking over at one another and shrugging, before the woman purred out a “Yes.” Apparently the husband-wife ones looked best. Hence, the awkwardness.
The two of you arrive home as the day begins to darken, the sun slipping down behind the clouds and shifting the sky back toward the muted, sterile greys of late winter. You tread carefully down the stairs into the station, your abundance of shopping bags making you feel like one of those fancy Elizabethan chicks with the excessive dresses must’ve felt. “Dios mio…” That would be Gaby spotting you. She trails toward you and you cargo, her eyes wide. “How did you pay for all this?” You grin, and for a moment you feel like you’re made of gold. “I’m a detective now. I solve hard cases for hard money.” Maybe you should invest in a Sherlock hat. Layla follows close behind Gaby, all fifteen (holy shit she’s learning to keep more of her duplicates around longer, not good) of her. Noriko lags after them both, looking vaguely bemused. “You’re looking pretty exotic there.” She nods toward your new fashion statement, making you feel just a little more self-conscious than you’d like. >Present Time: 3:35 PM>Hunger Level: 3>Current Funds: $777>[ ] Ask where everyone else is.>[ ] Rest up an’ stuff.

>(1/2)>[X] Ask where everyone else is.>[X] Rest up an’ stuff. Just chill.>[X] Start setting up your fly new tent.“Hey,” You glance over Noriko’s shoulder, at the mostly empty platform. “Where is everyone?” She shrugs. “Kevin and Lucas took the vampire to see those”– Her nose visibly wrinkles, as though she suffering through an awful smell –“X-people.” Yeah, it only started getting easier to say ‘Young X-Men’ with a straight face after seventh or eighth time you had to use it in a real conversation. “Guess they’re still there.” Well, that’s good to know. You imagine that Hisako chick wants to know absolutely everything that went down – she seems like the thorough type, like she’d be a cop or something if it weren’t for the whole dirty muties stealin’ our jerbs thing. “Cool.” Still… “Guess we can go after them if they’re out too late. For now, who wants to set up a tent?” “Seriously?” One of the Laylas darts by you, rummaging through the assorted bags. “Yep.” You let your chest puff out a little. JJ strong, JJ procure foodstuffs for hobo family, JJ beat chest and eat people when provoked. “Picked up some real person food too. Some minced beef, some good chicken, some spaghetti…” Lots and lots of spaghetti, actually. You don’t know why but you just feel drawn to it.You and the group spend a little while setting up the tent, Layla’s ability to be everywhere at once proving useful for once, if no less annoying. A few failed attempts and sore thumbs later, you end up with a big, arched tent standing in the middle of the platform, large enough to house the whole lot of you and maybe one or two more. Christ, it’s beautiful… You spend the next hour just lying back on one of your sleeping bags, admiring your handiwork. Well done, JJ. Well done. >Present Time: 4:55 PM

>>33408755FUCK I forgot she was a druggie
>>33408755Maybe it's a bit too dark for Layla and Gaby, but Noriko can handle it. I think we should grab her aside, tell her first and ask her if we should tell those other two.
>>33408755What, you want her to find out via word of mouth instead?
>>33408755We don't have the option of hiding it from Kevin and Noriko forever.>>33408801Gaby is soft, Layla isn't afraid of shit except ghosts.
Wait, is jack actually made out of people?Or is it a byproduct of something that mutants make?Theres a big difference between eating a burger made of a person and eating breast milk cheese
>>33408755Maybe we should wait for Kevin to be back as well, tell both of them at the same time
>>33408858don't you remember tumor boy?
>>33408755She has to find out somehow.It's best she hears it from people who care about her.More importantly, it's best she hears it from people who can survive it if she takes the news badly, snaps, and goes off like Thor on a drunken bender.
Had a go at re-drawing JJ to look more like Crusty's version as well as having a go at Victoria.

>>33409024>PSEUDOSCALES: JJ Green possesses scaly markings on his hands, his joints, and in the vicinity of his collarbone.

>(1/2-3)>[X] Check texts.>[X] Soylent Green.Dreamily considering what you could get done with the fruits of your next payday, you flick idly through your texts. You’ve got a reply from Peter, informing you that he’s free tonight, possibly tomorrow afternoon too, which reminds you message that Remy guy. Gotta touch base there at some point. Sighing contentedly, you stash the phone away, and – wait. Wait a minute. You tug it back out, glancing through your message logs again. >UNKNOWN: 6 NEW MESSAGESSix. Were there always six? Biting your lip, you open them one after the other. They don’t… really say much. The first two ask if that’s you turning off the machines around it.

>>33409192well, who needs sleep anyway?
>(2/3)The sixth… is just a stream of unintelligible, meaningless text, barely any of it even recognizable as English – or any other language you know of. Quietly, you stow your phone back away in your pocket and run your hands through your hair. “Hey…” You voice is a little hoarse. “Hey, everyone, I got some stuff I need to tell you guys.” “Is it that you’re a lady now?” Asks a Layla, snickering quietly. “A lady with pretty braids?” “…No.” You breathe out a long, difficult sigh. This is hard. Noriko seems to notice the strain in your voice and sits down, shaking her head at Layla(s).“What is it, JJ?”
>>33409192RIP in peace tumorbro
>(3/3)You tell them. It takes a while, and eventually you have to show them the… messages… you got from UNKNOWN. The faces assembled before you pass through a gamut of shock, disgust, and gut-wrenching horror, before their reactions veer out in different directions. Unexpectedly, Gaby takes it the best – you get the impression that bad people doing bad things doesn’t surprise her. It’s just how things are. There are good people and bad people and the bad people are terrible, end of. Layla asks why someone would do anything like this a few times, and you answer her as best you can, but she’s clearly not really talking to you. Noriko… Electricity coils across her shoulders, bright white with ionizing heat. “I’ve been… you mean I’ve been…” You shift back instinctively. She looks like she’s about to either barf or explode. “…I’ve been eating people? Human people…?” “Well…” You clear your throat, giving you a moment to think. “…I’m not sure. I don’t know if it’s made from people or if it just, like, incubates in the”– “What’s the difference!?” Her hands fold up over her head, as if trying desperately to hold her grey matter in, keep it from bursting out into the world. “What difference does that make!?” >[ ] “You couldn’t possibly have known.”>[ ] “Okay, it’s awful, but you have to calm down now, Noriko.

>>33409571No, I don't think that's the case. It was at the time, but given >>33409492 there is something much more to this.

JJ should text back with, "I'm so sorry. Please forgive me. I'm going to get revenge for what they've done." after we text Remy.Actually, we should probably text Remy to meet up so we can get a feel for each other.

>23>bawssMan, if it’s one or the other, you hope she barfs… “Look…” You hold your hands up. That’s supposed to be calming, right? Man you hope you don’t look too absolutely terrified. Moderately absolutely terrified would be best. “…You’re not the only one. Creeper fooled a lot of people. A lot. Me, you, Kevin…” At least Noriko didn’t actively cart this stuff around. You… you actually had some small part in making all this possible. The chemists brewed it, you delivered it, and the dealers dealt it. You were part of the chain. You’re implicit in it, the whole thing. “…But if you don’t calm down right now, you’re going to hurt someone…” She looks up at you through strings of swaying, electrically charged hair, her brow creased with effort and her eyes full of lightning. “We’re going to make this right.” You add. “I’m going to meet with the… the X-guys… and we’re gonna do something about this.” Almost like the real X-Men. Huh. “…Really?” Her voice kinda reminds you of a Geiger counter when she’s like this.You nod. Slowly, she calms down, her inner glow folding back away, the flailing tendrils of lightning shrinking back under her skin. She breathes in and out slowly, and, with little warning, veers to the side to vomit over the edge of the platform. “Urgh.” Layla covers her nose. “Gross.” >[ ] Meet Peter. >[ ] Go looking for the others.>[ ] Just stick around here for the night, make sure everything remains cool.>[ ] Write in.

>>33409945My thought is that he had been doing it for a while, existing primarily in the machines as his body was sucked away and brain became less reliable. Eventually, he used JJ's cellphone as a transmitter, and got out into the wide world. When his body died, it was traumatizing, but nothing he can't recover from. He wasn't using it much anyways.

Guys, a thought. If that is how Noriko, a trusted companion of ours who also thugged her addiction to Jack out, reacted to the news about Jack, how would Kevin react? how will Rogue?

>>33410486We'll tell Parker...and ask his opinion.
>>33410503Seconded. Plus I'm not sure if Ben wants anything to do with us after getting his ear cut off.

>(1/2)>[X] Go looking for the others.“Don’t be a butt.” You say, clipping Layla cross the back of the head and inadvertently generating a new pair of duplicates. They rub their scalp in synchronized indignation, glaring up at you. “You gonna be okay, Noriko?” Still leaning out over side of the platform, presumably in case of a second surge, she sucks in a deep, measured breath and glances back at you. A few stray sparks dance under her eyes, like tears made of blue fire. “I’ll be fine.” Yeah, you think she will. Out of all of them, she’s the one that’d probably last as long as you by her lonesome. Getting up, you entrust Laura with half your funds, reasoning that the Scar isn’t particularly safe. She offers to accompany you, but you point out that someone should probably stick around to watch Noriko. Nodding in silent agreement, she sees you off, and you head back out into the cold. The sky overhead is dim and coarse, transitioning unevenly from blackening grey to orange to deep, bloody red. You trudge through it, wrapping your jacket in close. On the way, you think a little about that kid, down there in the dark, and how he reached out to you through your phone. You kinda want to send something back, just in case, but you’re not sure what.
>>33410524If we show him info that Jack is people, he'll be interested. It's an obsession.
>(2/2)It doesn’t take you long to reach the old library the Young X-Men call home, the smell of wet fur and spittle rising up through the ruins long before you see the building itself. “Hey.” You say, as you cross the opposite road. You know the creature – Rahne, was it? – is out there, listening. You’ve grown somewhat accustomed to its scent. Not really in the mood to stop and chat, you head into the building, making your way through the desolate, wind-swept lobby. You can smell people nearby – Victor, Hisako, the blonde guy. Kevin, Lucas, Anna. And a few others you’re not as well acquainted with. You rap your knuckles against one of the bookshelves as you approach the central clearing. Don’t want to surprise these people. When they finally come into view, you see that Hisako is sitting beside Victor and another guy – tall, brown here, stern brow, probably in his late teens. That girl from before is with them too, the one with the blindfold, and she’s looking relatively awake. The blonde dude, Doug or whatever, appears to be talking to Anna off to the side. Kevin and Lucas are sitting opposite the others. All eyes turn toward you.>[ ] You guess they’ve been told, then.>[ ] Good to see the girl up and about.>[ ] You want to know what they’re doing with the vampire.>[ ] Write in.

>>33410620>[ ] You guess they’ve been told, then.>[ ] Good to see the girl up and about.>[ ] You want to know what they’re doing with the vampire.Vouch for the vampire. I'm pretty sure she would have told her side already, but she probably needs all the help she can get.
>>33410812Exactly. NEVER should we go out heroing...even when we aren't looking for it we get our ass kicked.
>>33410812Yes, but we don't "go out" heroing. Heroing just happens to take place around us.
>>33410816What does she need "vouching" for.What are they gonna do to her, become the law unto themselves and put her in jail in their basement?Call Mutant Control?
>>33410851We could have realistically never gotten involved with Laura and just stuck to our hobo lifestyle, but that'd be boring.
>>33410910They're X-Men fanboys. You think they have the stones for that?
>>33410882>What are they gonna do to herPossibly? Eliminate her, for Justice and the good of all!After all, she hurt so many innocent people. They could have died! No hero could possibly let someone like that walk around! BURN THE WITCH!/MarvelLogic...I don't think it's likely, but worth asking just in case.
>>33410976a lot of X-men are kinda cool with killing and CJ says the X-men in this AU are a lot more millitant... so maybe?some muggas are just cautious just chill
Coming out with the info to the New X-men first, won't that upset the Corsairs?
>>33411082We can say, "I know them better, so yeah I told them first."
>>33411082I dunno but we're not really on good terms with them and one day one of them is going to get in scuffle with the cops and get the whole scar in trouble, so tough shit if they get pissy
>(1/2)>[X] You guess they’ve been told, then.>[X] Good to see the girl up and about.>[X] You want to know what they’re doing with the vampire.“Hey.” You nod in the girl’s – blindfold girl – general direction. “Good to see you up and about.” She nods slowly, as if going through the motions of a dream, and smiles. “Yes, thank you, very good.” There’s something a little worrying about that smile. “It’s good to see you, too. You’ve come a long way to be with us tonight.” You pause. Why do you get the feeling that she’s not talking about the walk between here and your little hideout? Before you can inquire further, the brunette, Mr. Tall Dashing and Stern, approaches with his hand held out. “Hey. You don’t know me, exactly, but I feel I should be thanking you.” You take his hand, a slight electrical buzz suddenly playing at the tips of your fingers. Who the hell is this guy and why is he – “I’m Jeb. As in, Jeb Guthrie. Thanks for getting word to me about my brother. You’re a good guy.”
>(2/2)“Oh, right…” You feel the compliment like a heady, warm glow in the back of your skull. That’s pretty new. “…It, uh, it was nothing. Nice to meet you.” Stuffing your hands in your pockets (human contact, you’ve had enough of it for now), you turn toward Hisako, and then the ‘vampire’. “How’s this thing going?” You were kinda worried that they’d do… something… to her, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.Hisako sighs, folding her arms. “She’s staying here for now.” She glances over at the girl. “We have a reputation for being helpful. Hopefully some of that can rub off on her, and people will forget all that’s happened. That aside…” She turns her eyes toward Lucas, and then back to you. You notice that the younger boy doesn’t seem all too enthused with any of this.“…Your friend here has made some pretty incredible claims. Is he telling the truth?”>[ ] Tell her that it’s true, and she’ll have to take your word on it for now.>[ ] Tell her that it’s true and you’ll get proof. >[ ] Tell her that it’s true and somebody had to do something about Jack eventually anyhow.>[ ] Tell her that it’s true, you once worked for Creeper, and you know how dangerous these kinds of people can be.>[ ] Write in.

alright, lets start listing off leads.1.) find the guy that gave Rogue the Jack
>>33411715Or where she got it from.Mighta been stolen?
>>33411762She told us where she got it from >>32266496 That anon up there didn't just make that up on conjecture. She literally told JJ how she got it. It was their first conversation.
>>33411435Could we show her the texts as some kind of proof? Not exactly a smoking gun, I know, but certainly better than nothing.
>>33411924not really anon.
>>33411230If Ruth's here, does that mean her brother is somewhere out there?
>>33411924It's really not.
>>33411450>16“It’s true.” You confirm. “I don’t have proof, but I will.” Hisako examines you closely, narrowing her eyes at you. You don’t get the impression that this is a very trusting person you’re looking at here. Which is fine enough, you suppose – homelessness doesn’t teach you to be trusting. Meeting her gaze, you refuse to look away, and a strange, silent exchange ensues, neither one of your particularly willing to budge from a position of quiet stoicism. Eventually, she relents, sighing wearily. Warily, too. Her whole rhythm is guarded. You get the impression this girl never drops her defences, not even for a second. “Alright.” “You believe us?” You ask, sounding a little surprised yourself.“I believe it’s plausible.” She states, curtly. “Of course, this isn’t the first grand claim you’ve made. First you save everyone at the docks, then you bring this great truth to us. Maybe you’ll turn water into wine next? Or feed us all with a single loaf?” You frown. Hard. “You’re either telling the truth or you’re a deeply manipulative person.” She continues, matching your frown with one of her own. “But, either way, it can’t do much harm for everyone to meet on these grounds. It had to happen eventually.” Rising to her feet, she balls her fists, the light twisting unnaturally about her, as though through a pall of tinted glass. “We’ll meet with Julian’s people. And the Corsairs, too, if Jono agrees to it.” Yeah… those guys. --------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ81: END>Congratulations! X-Point!>Congratulations!

>>33412288I say either Adhesive Touch, Claws, Taserhands 2 or Healing Vitae.
>>33412288healing vitae.stakes going up and a lot of our buddies don't heal
>>33412405>the summaryThat's impossible.
>>33412288I've been for taserhands for a long time. Upgrade from a taser to an actual electric shock.
We could get Animal Mimicry to pass of as human easily, Solar Paneling to get solar juice quicker, Floral or Animal Affinity too?
>>33412288healing vitae would be nice.
>Leader of the Corsairs is Jono.>http://marvel.wikia.com/Jonothon_Starsmore_(Earth-616)Well shit.
>>33412129Governmental suggestion:These three make a council, and act as the ruling body. They can each act as judge, jury, and executioner in their own territory (lines of which will have to be drawn and agreed upon, something we can also help with) but for matters regarding the entirety of the scar, it'll have to be a joint meeting on agreed-upon neutral ground.JJ's roll in this will be as peacekeeper. He'll be allowed to voice his opinion and act as advisor, but he won't be allowed to vote. Instead, if anyone violates the peace of the Scar by attacking another group, or breaches the peace of the council's neutral ground, or outright refuses to abide by any agreements the council makes for the betterment of the scar, we will step in and eliminate the current leader of that faction.We have a skillset that makes us an adept and damnably lethal assassin.Additionally, it will be our responsibility to investigate matters if the council deems it necessary, in which case members of each group will be required to cooperate.The hard point is that we have to abide by the council's decisions, even if we don't like them. Even if we think it's idiocy, and will get everyone killed.Should one group attack another, the third group will come to the defender's aid, as shall we, making it a war on two fronts with an easily Class 4 mutant knowing them inside and out. This is to ensure any open conflicts are resolved as quickly and quietly as possible, without the need for Mutant Control to get involved.

Hey, wait a minute.Cipher is right there.That sixth tech message from the technomancer is "gibberish"... or machine code.He could read it.As soon as JJ finds out his power is languages anyway.
>>33412459>We could get Animal Mimicry to pass of as human easilyHoly shit this!Our next mission requires us to go under cover. 1 point and we can pass as human.I demand a revote!
>>33412532Good idea, Anon!Animal Affinity it is!
>>33412512Jono and the Corsairs kinda have enough clout to get a possible council seat thinghopefully there's a fifth group
>>33412532We have 1 xp Animal Mimicry costs 1 point.I vote Animal Mimicry.
>>33412568Jono, Julian, and Hisako.Those are our three.
>>33412532Slow down, it's going to be like, eleven threads before we do that mission. We'll have time.
>>33412288Planning to max agility for now.After that... I'm thinking a level of wings. Get it out of the way. Then photosynth, subdermal, taser, claws, adhesive, both toxins, forearm plates/barbs...Seriously. I've got powerbuy aims listed in order. Through damn near everything maxed. Very much doubt I'll get halfway down.
>>33412571I meant GENETIC MIMICRY
>>33412532we can already invisible and its now crackbitch proof.I don't see how this isn't largely redundant
>>33412610I think Wings 3 should be next.
>>33412532GENETIC MIMICRYGenetic Mimicry allows us to pass as human. Animal Mimicry is an extrapolative of Genetic Mimicry.
>>33412592>>33412638Why? What's wrong with Genetic Mimicry?
>>33412661Technically, we could obscure certain mutant features at Invisibility level 3 I think? with a roll(never really used that, though), and now that we are crackbitch proof on that department and have three rolls, I feel it's a safe move.
>>33412699>Why? What's wrong with Genetic Mimicry?I personally just find Animal Affinity or Electrostatic Cloud to be more useful.>>33412715Invisibility 4, you mean.
>>33412661How about animal affinity, because it sybergizes with what we actually have and doesn't require flesh or brain consumption
>>33412730animal spies would actually be useful for detective work, especially since we do detective work now
>>33412699Because at higher levels we effectively have to become Sylar to get the most out of it. No thanks
>>33412699It limited to 4 ranks unless you like brains.
>>33412730>doesn't require flesh or brain consumptionGenetic Mimicry doesn't require brain consumption. Do you honestly think we're ever going to get it to level 5?When you voted for adhesive touch did you do it because we wanted to get it to level 5? No we bought it because level 1 was useful not because level 5 was useful.>>33412715We might be able to make parts of our body invisible. But we can't make ourself look human. If you want to make the scales on our arm disappear you'll need to make the whole are invisible.
>>33412815people voted for adhesive touch because of the chameleon theme back then
>>33412786>>33412807see >>33412815non or our utility powers are going to get to level 5. Or do you think we're going to max out every power we have? We've had taser hands and claws for over 50 threads and they're still at level 1 for Christs sake.>>33412850No I voted for it because it's fucking useful.
ah the post thread power spergingHow I loathe it
>>33412815Yes it fucking doesGENETIC MIMICRYJJ may consume the genetic material of others to take on aspects of their appearance, and even mannerisms.Level 1: After consuming a small amount of blood, saliva, or another genetic sample of a being, JJ may temporarily take on some of their minor aesthetic traits. He cannot become them, but he can take on their hair colour and type/ethnicity/eye colour/etc.Level 2: JJ may now shift fully into an exact copy of a human being whose DNA he has recently sampled. This change only lasts for a matter of minutes.Level 3: JJ may now maintain the change for an hour.Level 4: JJ now only needs an at least somewhat extended amount of physical contact with a target to take on their shape. Additionally, he can access a few of their mannerisms.Level 5: By consuming a significant portion of a person’s brain, JJ may permanently ‘store’ their genetic code and take their shape at any time.http://pastebin.com/JYrcDPPkThe last level REQUIRES brain consumption to get the fullest bang for our buck. Now, I'll agree we may never get there, but some people don't want the power because we wouldn't be able to fully utilize it
>>33412928Would you rather talk about something else? because I'm game if you are.
>>33413076we got the husband wife beads but who got which exactly?
>>33412963>>33413012Are you fucking retarded? Did you read literally anything in that post you're quoting?Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you are REQUIRED to do that thing. We can buy a power without upgrading it to level 5We bought Electrostatic touch on thread 5. We have gone literally 75 threads and it is still at level 1. Buying level 1 does not REQUIRE you to buy level 5.
>>33412850I wasn't there for the power vote for adhesive touch, but honestly it's been pretty useful and at later levels it's full blown tactile-kinesis, which could be useful in carry important people or items, carry several people at one time, etc.
>>33413109Okay, did you read my phrasing? I said 'to get the fullest bang for our buck', the colloquism meaning to use it to its FULLEST as in to use the last ability listed, it requires brain consumption. Yes, requires. No, we don't have to do it, but there is a requisite if we want to you fucking sperg
>>33413157So when do you plan on bringing Adhesive touch to level 5? Obviously we need to get it to level 5 since we have that power.
I was hoping Rogue would join us in the Tunnel Snakes
>>33413252I'd like to yeah, it's full on tactile kinesis at max which is really fucking useful. It's the shit Superman has so that when he lifts heavy shit, that heavy object doesn't fall apart because it's not being supported structurally in other areas.
>>33413252>>33413299It also lets you walk on water for a little while, which would probably be useful in shaking people
>>33413268Same, we got her a matching jacket and everything.
>>33413268>>33413341We can see about asking next thread. I'd like Rogue on board to, and we did find her first
>>33413341She'd have been really useful in extracting info from Creeper goons.
>>33413091I think there a matching pair so there's no real differece between them and the bead just symbolizes a relationship of that type like a wedding ring and such.
>>33413387After sticking with the Young X-men, I think. Marrow's probably going to be an arse because she wanted to show how alpha she wasn't, so it's best for Anne to stay with them for a bit.
>>33413400it just would have been funny if we had the wife bead
>>33413320>>33413341It will take 95 x-points to max everything.So on thread 151 we will have Adhesive touch level 5. Which will be pretty cool. On thread 171 when we buy Genetic mimicry level 5 yes we might have the option to eat someone brain.That's assuming we don't buy a single extrapolative.
>>33413476new powers would be available by then anon
>>33413476Sure, if we get Genetic Mimicry, and people don't find Animal Affinity more useful because there's more extrapolatives to support it
I can't think of a better time to post this. I wrote a fanfic. Now I'm posting it. God bless.http://pastebin.com/aBZJZEVW
>>33412772talking to animals sucks, it will force us to be a vegan faggot.
>>33413428Maybe we do I based my opinion on nothing. Hell maybe they gave larua and jj both wife beads marking them as a lesbian couple
>>33413476We'll probably buy Muscle Memory Shadow field, Healing Vitae echolocation and telescopic vision some time between now and thread 171.So you'll need to add 16 x-points to that.111 x-points.>>33413532I think that's the point he was trying to prove - >that we will never get it to level 5 so why argue about what the level 5 ability is.
>>33413570...our first smut fic? Hooray!
>>33413585It doesn't have to, JJ will still have that bloodthirst for flesh. He can just ignore the dead flesh he eats. He's pretty good at ignoring things that bother him and shoving it in a deep box where he doesn't have to acknowledge it
>>33413476I was kinda avoiding talking about the whole powers thing, but thanks for caring enough to link me.
>>33413837Linked to wrong one. I don't think the jackets we bought were matching. But we did buy her clothes... Maybe Kevin and Gabby will take them to her tomorrow.
>>33413905Just google Tunnel Snakes Fallout 3, anon.
i hope Laura doesn't fall for Gambit.he has that effect on girls
>>33413996It should have elf ears
>>33413996>>33414179Snake with elf ears, big wings and covered in lightning and flames.
>>33412850People voted for adhesive touch because it gave us a massive mobility boost AND it stacked with invisibility.
>>33414326Thats metal as fuck yo
>>33413113Wanna know something real fucking funny?Thread #17(when we got Adhesive Touch) was probably the strongest point for the phasing campaign, we had all the cool bits covered and where looking into utilities. Shortly after(I think after vanishing the demon, thread 20) we got our powerset locked - no new powers-. We got one x point the thread before, but it was so late we couldn't hold a vote before the thread disappeared.Thread #17 also saw a change in the voting format. Old format would allow you to quote back to CJ and still count your vote.There were 23 total votes in thread #17. Only 7 of those votes where in the new format, so our final primary power was decided by those seven votes.Out of all 23 votes, 8 total went to phasing and banking. 6 of them were in the old format, while only 2 where in the new and valid format.7 votes total went for phasing, 4 in the old format and 3 in the new format. So, despite having 2 fewer old style votes and 1 vote less overall than the two other options, thanks to adopting a new format(and CJ being tired as shit and not wanting to make a second vote to decide between banking and phasing), Adhesive touch won.>>27831750Oh GreenEggsandSlam, how far ahead of your time you were.
>>33413965We could just introduce him to Rogue.
>>33414357... Why did you type all of that out? I mean, it looks like you did actual research.
>>33414357addendum>There were no x point votes in threads 18 and 19>"so our final primary power was decided by those seven votes." should be "so our final secondary power was decided by those seven votes.">Phasing and Banking received the same amount of votes and in the same distribution; 6 Old Format and 2 New Format.>>33414484You guys made me nostalgic and I wanted to go back and see what I voted for. Then I noticed the patterns and remember the pain of our phasingbros.
>>33413585Ya, Why the hell would anyone want to talk to food?
>>33413570This is the worst smut I've ever read. You're garbage, and you should be ashamed.
>>33413585Not really. I mean, yeah, we'd probably stop eating pork, but fish are goddamn stupid and I'm not sure there's anything redeemable about chicken.
>>3341457660 threads later I'm still glad we bought Adhesive Touch instead of phasing. Mostly because it can be used while invisible.
>>33414714meh, I've read worse
>>33413570>no mention of expanding cosmos or the clockwork-like harmony of your coalescing vital rhytmhs>no handholding2/10
>Hisako thinks JJ is a potential master manipulatorcan we just all take a moment and just laugh?
>>33414853He's a world class Pastamancer, but that's it.
>>33414843>>no mention of expanding cosmos or the clockwork-like harmony of your coalescing vital rhytmhsWhat are you, some kinda faggot?
>>33414728>stop eating porkDear god we can NOT let this travesty come to pass. Pork is the best food in existence.But seriously, if we want to have a conversation with a frog we could call Chat and have her translate. We work at the same place, we should definitely have her phone number.
>>33414914I think the real utility is enlisting some pidgeons to do stakeouts and cover all possible vantage points/scape routes.
>>33415011Maybe even get them to shit on the criminals before we take them down.
>>33415030defecate for justice!
>>33415011If you read the power description what you're suggestion would require level 3. (6 points total)I think 4 points to Agility and 2 points to Claws (6 points total) would be 100 time more useful that bird lookouts.
>>33415123strength 3 made the other melee powers irrelevant.
>we have bullseye-lite vision>damn near everyone is against getting a gunWhy?
>>33415174Eurofags don't understand America.
>>33415174Guns are for losers, I want a giant dragon slayer bow
>>33415011Wait, are we getting some sort of telepathic compulsion power here? Because if we're just asking for help I think most prey animals (skitish bastards) aren't going to be that reliable or particularly task oriented. Anything higher on the food chain we can probably work out a food-for-work payment plan with.
>>33415011>>33415030Sperging aside. These fags>>33413476 >>33413595 did a pretty good job of demonstrating that we're not going to be getting out utility power to high levels any time soon. No matter what that power is.We can't really get birds to go out of their way to help us until level 3. (6 points) So the whole "animal arm" argument is irreverent.>>33415155Strength 3 is definitely not enough to kill a Sentinel. Claws 2 will allow us to cut through their armor.
>>33415280well, if we sink enough points into it, we can effectively mind control animals
>>33415280From the pastebinANIMAL AFFINITYJJ develops the ability to communicate with and command fauna.Level 1: JJ may understand the basic gist of what an animal is conveying. He may suggest actions but not compel them.Level 2: JJ may entirely understand ‘animal-speak’. Smaller land bound animals almost automatically trust him and are more suggestible.Level 3: JJ may sense nearby wildlife. Airborne animals and large land bound animals almost automatically trust him and are more suggestible. JJ may emit a loud noise that acts as a ‘beacon’ to chosen creatures.

>>33415197I have a feeling this would not work at all>>33415174Because "muh stealth character"
>>33415174Because our tough opponents are already immune to small arms fire and those that are susceptible to bullets are usually better dealt with in a more personal fashion (gunshots attract attention real fast). Besides, you want Nori to have a lightning spasm and accidentally set of a box of ammo in our tunnel?
>>33415309At no level is Animal Affinity mind control. It only makes them trust us.
>>33415371>small armsNo my friend, go big or go home, I want to snipe snipe with our god like eyes
>>33415197Why not just use the DB plasma bolts option at that point?
>>33415410>snipe>needing heavy caliber for itgtfo newfag, .50 blaze it fagit
>>33415430I SAID GO BIG OR GO HOME DAMN IT WE SNIPE WITH TANK
>>33415174Because guns are very expensive, and we're poor as fuck.
>>33415326It's a lot of points for very little reward. Considering we can't actually control them. What are we going to tell them?JJ: "Hey, you see that mutant over their that killing everything near it?"Bird: "Yes..."JJ: "Go throw yourself at it to buy me some time."Bird: "Fuck you."
>>33415465>implying we cant steal one from some lowlife weapon dealerThis is NYC mugga
I'll take the potential of Animal Affinity over the redundancy of Genetic mimicry.
>>33415486That sounds like a fun way to get shot up.
>>33415430>.50 calActually, if we took another level or two of adhesive touch we could probably fire it from our shoulder without bracing it or losing our footing. Add telescopic vision so we don't have to readjust the scope constantly and we could be mobile and able to set up invisibly on any building by wall running.
>>33415474JJ: "Bird! That guy behind me is an asshole!"Bird: "And?"JJ: "Carpet bomb, go go go!"Bird: "HA! I'm on it mang!"

>>33415515You should post this in the next thread.
>>33415526Birds don't really have that much control over their bowel movements.
>>33415515....that actually makes >>33412512 a fairly valid plan, since we COULD be badass enough to be a peacekeeper.
>>33415576Ya, I'm pretty sure birds shit when their bowls are full. They can't hold it in and choose where to go like humans and most mammals can.
>>33415515>we start taking hits from the mafia>we become feared in the criminal underground because they cant even see the light flashing off the scope>they cant track us down because we are able to freely move to almost anywhere after each shot in very little time>not even considering the fact that we are straight up invis>we are rolling in doshsounds good to me man
>>33415565Probably not, I tend to think conventional weapons are pretty underpowered in marvel so what's the point when the second we try it someone will neutralize it, or Shield will pop out of nowhere to distract us. Still, you're welcome to propose it in my stead.
>>33415711I certainly will, I want my bang bang shoot shoot good old american fun
>>33415711Do it.It's an interesting idea, at least. You might get people interested. I know I am.
>>33415733Then you should probably vote to track down Castle. Lot a fun to be had there.
>>33415707No. We're too much of a paladin for that. JJ does not kill if given any other option.
>>33415775>too much of a paladinNah man, we just don't kill non dickholes, JUSTICE and shit yo
>>33415707>JJ>assassinMaybe I should work harder on the google doc, people can't be arsed to read the archives it seems/
I don't understand the want for guns when we could just get ball-bearings at Lowes or somewhere. Completely silent and cheaper and probably easier to pull off ricochet shenanigans.
>>33415775>JJ does not kill if given any other optionWhile true as a default I'd like to leave room for a few exceptions. Kimura for example.
>>33415823I've been caught up for the last 12 or so threads, admittedly it is a far fetched ideajust let me dream mugga
Oh fuck me, Creeper's been buying Jack from the Facility right? Who wants to bet they've supplied him with Trigger Scent since we're a well known associate of Laura's by now.
>>33415849>ball-bearingsAnd do what? throw them? I mean maybe if we got one of them fancy slingshots>>33415917Fuck
>>33415917a flashback says we stole it from some gang for himbut it certainly looks that way now what with the last couple of threads
>>33415949>Throw them?We have enhanced Strength 3 and Agility 3 as well as perfect ricochet. We can basically throw redirecting bullets (well, steel musket balls) right now and those will scale as we increase agility. Hell, if we ever get that repulsion power the damn things will gain momentum with every bounce until they impact with soft tissue.
>>33416032Nigga throwing requires a lot more arm motion than is efficient and stealthy
>>33415917>Creeper's been buying Jack from the Facility right?That's not what's been happening at all. The hell are you smoking?
>>33416072True, on the other hand we're basically at the point where we can kill mooks and civilians with thrown quarters, so there's that.
>>33416239Yes but then their commander shows up and rips our arm off when we raise it up to throw
>>33416265If we're close enough to them (and accessibly instead of being adhered to a wall or ceiling) for the commander to spot the point of sudden deadly pocket change materialization (leaving our invisi-field) then we probably deserve a broken arm. That being said, everyone and their mother has decent body armor these days.
>>334163333.5 tons of force should handle their armor well enough, especially if that 3.5 tons of force was used to throw an angry Laura
