Welcome to Academy City. The time is near evening, the weather is strange, and the date is August 26.You are Kyril Torikov, ‘Level 2’ Telekinetic Child Error, and you were walking home with your girlfriend, a pair of panties in hand. It’s not for her, mind, but rather the babysitter you hired, Toshino Kyouko. You weren’t sure why she needed a new pair of panties. Everything looked to be fine when you left her with both the Index Librorum Prohibitorum and Last Order. She even bought a hefty stack of paper with her so you’d imagine that Index would stay out of trouble. You had been having a good day too.After all, you managed to locate the Chemicaloid that you had been hired to steal. That it was protected by several hundred powered suits was of no concern. You had the means to acquire some serious firepower. It was a good thing those things were supposedly remote controlled. After that it was a simple matter of waltzing out with Nunotaba and the Chemicaloid itself. All of that was tomorrow though.Sitting outside of Touma’s room, you found, well, Touma. Apparently he’d just been released from the hospital. He had also been chased out of his own dorm room. You must have forgotten to tell him about Toshino. He must have walked in at the worst possible time. Speaking of which, did you really want to walk in to a pants-less Toshino? Normally you were fine with the female form. However Toshino was related to magic the magic side. You didn’t have very pleasant memories when magic was involved.>Get to the bottom of things>Touma could use some company

>>33470768>Touma could use some company
>>33470768>Get to the bottom of thingsAnd maybe see some bottoms of things hohohoho
>>33470832But knock first and announce ourselves. Loudly.
>>33470768>Touma could use some companyLets see if we can't get a warning of what we're about to walk into
>Get to the bottom of things
>>33470768Good to see you OP. Wont be able to participate in the thread, but though I'd drop in and say you should probably archive as early as possible. That dumbass misarchivist is about again.
Touma had probably been kicked out recently then if his expectant expression was anything to go by. You spotted a pair of crutches beside him too. Really you were going to get to the bottom of this. Thus you opened the door swiftly, amidst Touma’s shout of warning and Asuka’s silent amusement.The room inside was bathed in a weird misty fog. It was blue. Thus you concluded the room was bathed in mana, Toshino’s mana to be more specific. It wasn’t like a normal dorm room. A wisp of light danced about, shining in the centre. Thick fog became streaks of blue, swirling slowly and coalescing in to a form reminiscent of the one in Teacher’s letter. Only this time, the shining light mimicked an open flame, from which a candle was clothed in robes. If they were blue to your sight, your mind though of them as red, the sleeves were so long as to obscure her hands. Beside her lay a quadruped, a steed that was gilded in black and white patterns. Your ears could hear its neighs and the distant stomping of feet, as if an army of similarly clothed candles were marching. How absurd.Then you found yourself face first on the ground, the air squeezed out of your lungs. You think it was Toshino’s foot on the back of your head. Though you couldn’t see her you felt that she had suffered more than just an indignity. Asuka however seemed torn between worry and curiosity. Last Order too though a pair of panties adorned her head. For what, you did not know.“Your eyes,” Index was staring at you, “You can see it can’t you?”“Huh?” you managed a breath.“Are you alright dear?” Asuka asked.>Ask Index what happened>Ask Asuka what happenedRoll 1d20 SAN Loss

Clearly the building has been tainted and must be purged by flame.
You mind was still awash from that strange sight. A splitting headache was in the making. You just knew it. Turning to Index, the foremost authority on magic, and asked her,“What happened?”“What did the Second Progenitor do to your eyes?” she wondered, “Some kind of filter for sight? No, those usually drive users mad? What then? Alchemy?”“Index-san?” now everyone was staring at her.“No, it’s definitely Alchemy but where or how? Hmmm, the reference pool is too small for me to judge. Nothing in the Yuewei Caotang Biji deals with this,” the white-robed nun continued.“Uh, Index-san,” this time Touma actually spoke, “What are you doing?”He had poked his head around the door to his apartment. Now he was walking up to Toshino.“Don’t touch her,” Index warded him off, “The spell will unravel if you do.”He took a step back and now Toshino was glaring at him. The magically unaware continued to watch silently, confused. The walking library turned back to you.“Hmmm, he still looks disoriented,” Index inspected you further, “So it’s not the spell he saw, not the ghostly fragments, not her soul, something simpler. Mana?”“Uh, yes,” you answered, if only to get her to stop.“I see,” Index concluded flatly, “Human minds aren’t meant to perceive it. How do you see?”“I see just fine thank you very much,” you answered.“No you didn’t,” she shot back.You turned to Asuka now.“I assume that she means to say that it looked like you had a seizure when your gaze fell upon Wanko-chan,” your girlfriend supplied, “Of course, I am not a medical professional but maybe I should summon one.”“No, no, I’m fine,” you headed her off quickly, “Right Toshino.”The redhead gave you a snort before lifting her foot and stomping out the door. She didn’t slam it though it looked like she wanted to. As you got up, you felt like you wanted to just go to sleep.[1/2]
>>33472061>Go home and lie down for a bit, you’re tired>Pursue a private conversation with Index
>>33472061>Pursue a private conversation with Index
>>33472108>Pursue a private conversation with IndexTell her what we saw, shouldn't matter too much, but also tell her to stop vocalizing her thoughts, she's mentioning magic too much around mundanes like Asuka and LO
>>33472108>Go home and lie down for a bit, you’re tiredwe can talk to her tomorrow without raising Asuka's curiosity
>>33472061>360 Moonwalk the fuck outta here
>>33472108Atlk it out with Index with everyone present. I mean it's just LO, Index, Touma, Asuka and us right? We did promise to tell Asuka about magic since us being even peripherally involved could affect her. Not to mention her father being involved in it so the rest of her family is too.Also Touma's already helped and been helped by us with it so no need to be private.
>>33472108>Pursue a private conversation with Index
Can someone remind me again why we're all hush hush about magic around Asuka?
>>33472190She doesn't believe.
>>33472190Because she doesn't believe in it. We've mentioned it before and she was just "Wut?" It's fairly incomprehensible for someone to understand magic without seeing it. Yes, yes I know Misaka and Accel know about it, but not until they'd both seen and been told about it.
>>33472108>Pursue conversation with IndexWorst case scenario, Asuka thinks we're insane.
Even with the fatigue you asked Asuka and Last Order to return to your room first. You had something to speak with the Index about. The last time you tried to talk about magic Asuka had been very sceptical. You didn’t need her thinking you were off your rocker, even if you kind of were. As for Last Order, she was still connected to over 9,000 other clones on the Misaka Network. The chance of a clone blabbing about magic was practically guaranteed in that case. Touma however had hung back, given that this was his dorm room and that he was also in the know about magic as it were. In fact you think he was the only one you could relate to as “someone caught up in the world of magic” and not another magician or someone deliberately in the know.“So what was that?” you asked Index again.“That was an abomination of a spell,” she replied, “It is a unique from normal necromancy.”“Wait she’s already dead?” Touma seemed surprised.“I don’t know,” Index answered, “That soul in her was definitely not a false soul but her body, her form is not a corpse, yet it is not fashioned from clay, or metal. Perhaps alchemy but that can’t possibly be the answer to everything!”“Well my eyes are,” you told her, “Teacher’s spell was based off of some Chinese tri gram or something. Can you at least tell me what I saw?”“A tri gram crucible?” you nodded before relaying your visions, “Hmmm perhaps it is a reflection of what was done to her or her nature.”“Which is it?” you wanted to know for sure.“A witch more likely,” Index continued, “But she couldn’t cast spells.”“What about her spear?”“That is part of the spell that keeps her ‘alive’, in more ways than one.”“So is she dead?” Touma repeated.“She’s sentient, isn’t that enough?” you asked.Touma shrugged.[1/2]
>>33473260Upon your return to your room, Asuka had a cup of tea ready in front of her. In her lap sat Last Order, her hair wet. You were gone for a while.“So tell me,” Asuka stopped for a moment, “No, tell us, what happened there?”“I may have hallucinated,” you replied.“To think Wanko-chan would provoke such a response,” Asuka’s tone was teasing, “I am starting to regret introducing you to autoerotic asphyxiation if seizures are the result of you gazing about the fairer sex.”“But onii-san didn’t show any signs of arousal. Says Misaka says Misaka as she refutes your claim.”“Hmmm, that is true,” Asuka dismissed the topic, “Another thing, I am curious about what this so-called Second Progenitor did to your eyes.”“Oh, that was just Teacher,” you recalled his title, “He just tweaked my sight a bit is all, it’s harmless. I see slight better now.”Asuka gave you a scrutinising look, as if searching for falsehoods. You weren’t lying. From a certain point of view, what you said was true after all.“Very well,” she concluded, “If you say so it must be true. Now, I am thinking of some basil stir fry for dinner.”Ah, another Thai recipe no doubt. There goes a peaceful night on the porcelain throne. At least you could read while you suffered.>Minds, Memories, and Multi-tasking>The Art of Approximation

>>33473316>Minds, Memories, and Multi-taskingWe finally have a reason to buy high grade explosives.
The time is morning, the weather is numb, and the date is now August 27.Last Order was still sleeping peacefully. You wonder if spicy food was your one true weakness. Still, today was a day where you had a lot to do. Last night, over dinner, Asuka had told her she would be busy this morning with something. It wasn’t surprising but her invitation to accompany her was. Then again, you were referred to an arms dealer by Toulour so the sooner you got the tools, the faster you could put Nunotaba’s job behind you. You expected that it’d take all morning so that was that. With the way Toshino left yesterday you were reticent on calling her for further babysitting duties. Her panties were still in the washing machine.That left Touma and Index. Not a bad idea in theory. However, today it seems that Touma was leaving the city for “family business”. He had come to say goodbye personally. In actuality he was just skipping town to let the heat of beating the first ranked Level 5, to die down. You honestly didn’t believe that it wouldn’t just go down just like that without some kind of help. So that was out.For now, there were really only two choices. It was either Sparky or Kaoru. Either would have the risk of Last Order running in to Shirai but if you didn’t you’d never be able to do anything today. Wait, there were actually three choices. You could leave her with Asuka for the morning while you acquired high grade explosives, but you weren’t sure if that was a good thing. Stuff in the afternoon will sort itself out later in the afternoon, you were sure of it. Speaking of which, Nakazawa was probably going to be unhappy that you weren’t on tap but this was more important than his thing.>What do?
>>33473584C4 goes next to the milk. At the back of the fridge.
>>33473753>leave LO with Sparkyeasier to pass off "sister" lie.>get some explosives
Rolled 93>>33473753Get Kyouko to babysit again, cause lulz. Double the pay.
>>33473753We could always take her along when buying explosives. I'm sure the clones could benefit from the knowledge of where to buy weapons.
>>33473753Let's go with Sparky, even if it all goes wrong hilarity will no doubt ensue.
I can't remember, were we going to enroll LO in school come start time?
>>33473753Call Kyoko to ask how she is.Leave Lo with Railgun.Go buy explosives.
>>33473909Yeah I'll back this
We should probably dye Mishka's hair to match our own.
>>33473909Sounds like a plan!
>>33473753>Call one of our friends to deal with the explosives. Take LO with us to help Nakazawa.We can't really leave LO with anyone other than Kyouko, but she's not going to be happy with us atm. So we should look after he ourselves.
Rolled 85>>33473939Suddenly, have a thousand clones are force by their administrator to dye their hair. Odd shortages ensues.
>>33473753>>33473909I want to try and ask Kyoko what happened too.I fully expect to get nothing, but yaknow.
>>33473753Ha ha, time for Angel Fall!I wonder who Kyril is gonna get bodyswapped with. Not like him or anyone in AC will notice the weirdness, but it's fun to guess.$20 on Esper Quest mc.
Rolled 28>>33474164We won't even notice
>>33474164I can only imagine him being swapped with Shirai. Possibly working out who he's switched with and trolling Touma with it.
>>33474164>Kyril and whats-her-face get into a tussle>Eyebrows burned off forever.
>>33474164we get one more day then HAHA TIME FOR ANGEL FALL
>>33474164Hopefully someone of drinking age. Then we can stockpile booze and retrieve it later.
>>33474275Don't you dare.
>>33474237Why repeat the post you're replying to?
>>33474164It's gonna be Asuka we swap with.
Will it matter who we swap with? Unless we get barriered by someone or thing we won't even notice that we swapped right?
>>33474548It will be pretty easy for Kyril to realize he was bodyswapped. He'll actually have eyebrows.
Oh the shit Kyril is going to see with his mana sight. I feel sorry for him already.
>>33474632He's just gonna see everyone and everything suddenly glow and then hide under his bed with an AK47 and some C4 shouting about magician conspiracy.
>>33474632>>33474660He shouldn't notice anything really. If you're fully affected by it you'll justify anything to not notice it. Those affected won't notice any change in weight for instance, and even records will change but people won't notice.
>>33474727Wouldn't they be soaked in mana or something like that? We'd see it anyway if that's the case.
>>33474727Guys, will Kyoko be affected? She will tip us off. We just gotta say to her if she is in trouble, we'll be willing to help out.
LO gonna swap with Asuka huh.... Not sure if adorable or terrifying
>>33474789Probably not? I mean Magicians can't notice either if they're affected, no matter what they do. The only ones that could notice were those that were in the deepest layers of places like Windsor Castle, that has a bunch of magic defenses on it. For example, Stiyl got fully hit, and Kanzaki wasn't able to make him understand that.We probably either won't notice, or we'll think to ourselves "I'm sure that's not a big deal or anything."
Huh, so Kyoko's probably the missing chemicaloidInteresting
Imagine Breaker made Touma immune to the spell so he didn't switch appearances with somebody, does that mean somebody in the world didn't switch appearances because Touma cancelled their bodyswap?What are the odds its Kyril?>>33475001nah, she's magic. some kind of golem/soulcage
>>33475001No, she's not. The chemicaloids are blonde lolis that constantly suck lollipops.
>>33475001She's not. She's a Magic Homunculus thingy. >>33475017Uh, there's enough humans in the world that there shouldn't be any spares if one doesn't change.
You honestly wanted to give Toshino a break but if she was still up for babysitting Last Order then you shouldn’t dismiss her out of hand. That’s why you called her up.“Torikov,” her voice was particularly frosty today, “What do you want?”“You still up for babysitting?”“That hellion?” Toshino sniffed, “Maybe if you doubled my pay.”“I’m not paying you remember? You’re working it off.”“Right, well double that then.”“If you don’t want to just say so,” you sighed.“Well the last thing I want is to associate with your kind.”“My kind?”“Magicians,” she spat with venom, “You know way too many magicians. Nothing good ever happens because of them.”“Why do you think I know them in the first place?”“Then that makes two of us then huh? Well whatever, call me when you have a real job,” and with that she hung up.So babysitting was out eh? Maybe you could strong arm her in to helping you break in to STUDY Corporation. That was for later though. Right now you had to find another baby sitter, and who else better to watch her than her onee-sama? You called Sparky.“Hey aniki, what is it this time?”You realised that you rarely called anyone just for a pleasant chat. You also realised that Sparky was seriously calling you aniki.“Could you do me a favour Sparky?”“I’m not running a charity here aniki,” she replied.Before you could protest however, she continued quickly,“Just kidding, sure, a distraction sounds nice.”“Right,” you sighed in relief, “Could you look after our little sister for a bit? Asuka’s busy and my usual babysitter is out of town.”“Sure thing,” she sent you an address, “Let’s meet up at this josePH’s.”[1/2]
>>33475017That'd be a confusing situation. Technically your body and mind aren't switched with the same person. You switch your body with one person and your mind with another. B<-A->C. So we're probably screwed either way.
>>33475017It could have picked up the slack by having three other people rotate instead of doing a direct swap 1-1
>>33475081With that done you could finally proceed to what you think is going to be the highlight of the day. None of the lads had wanted to miss this either so they obviously tagged along. You hoped the dealer didn’t mind. Toulour said his name was Gage and had given you an address. Everything else was on you.Gage was holed up in a swanky hotel in School District 3. A group consisting of rough and tumble high school students such as yours felt distinctly out of place in it. He owned a multi-floor suite. Hell, you were expecting a helicopter pad on the roof. What you weren’t expecting was a man in a wheelchair and a permanent frown etched on his face. He was also American, as his Japanese was accented.“Kids? Really? Toulour sent me kids?” his voice was gruff, “Ah whatever, what do you want?”“We need something that could take down a powered suit,” you answered.“Hmph, that’s definitely not cheap,” he scratched his beard, “I got some surplus plastic explosives but those might not do the trick. Launchers, and their ammo, are probably your best bet but those things aren’t cheap. How many shots you need?”“As many as I can buy,” you replied.“You going to war or something kid?”“Something like that,” you then asked, “You sell .45 ACP?”“Yeah, but that’s not what Toulour said you wanted to buy,” he argued.“But you sell that,” you continued.He only grunted in affirmation.>Acquire only plastic explosives>Get a few launchers and lots of ammo>Get both>Additional purchases (write-in)
I forgot, how did Touma losse his memory in this universe?
>>33475248Piece of Dragon's Breath fried his brain.
>>33475248Saving Index from herself, but apparently the memory loss didn't really change him at all.>>33475236>Get both
>>33475236>Get bothOr we could just buy a baseball bat.
>>33475248He disabled Index's memory scrubbing thing, John's Pen mode activated in response, she started beamspamming dragon breath magic all over the place, they defeated the beamspam, it started raining feathers as the stage 2 of the spell, one of them hit Touma in the head, brain damage.
>>33475236>>Get bothI'd really like to have something in reserve when we're done here, but either way it's better to have and not need than need and not have.
>>33475236>Get both>Additional purchases (write-in)Four choppers, two battleships, the death star, a red rider BB gun, a sack full of lego bricks and D4s, excalibur, and a train carriage full of illegal fireworks.Just kidding. Maybe.
>>33475236And 40 rounds of .45 ACP
>>33475236>Get a few launchers and lots of ammoI bet we can afford it and I want to be prepared.
>>33475333>a sack full of lego bricksTHAT IS OVERKILL AND UNETHICAL
>>33475323Yeah, not that. I ment in the quest.
>>33475375I don't think he did.Presumably he's still in his "I want to be useful to others" mindset. And remembers his childhood.This next arc is actually going to be pretty traumatic for Touma with his Dad and everything. Realizing his dad has been depressed about him his entire life...
>>33475393So he will recognise his dad as his dad?
>>33475236>Get bothThe plastic explosives will be useful if we combine them with TK and toss them at vulnerable spots.
>>33475443Interesting.I would really like the Angel Fall thing to be an interlude from Touma's or Kanzaki's perspective.
>>33475372Don't need ethics where we're going.Also, this is basically kidnapping and terrorism. I think we're past overkill.
>>33475538Oh please. The chemicaloids will see Kyril as a liberator!
>>33475550So he's a very nice kidnapper and terrorist.
>>33475572When the one you're fighting is as over the top evil as AC, you're a freedom fighter not a terrorist.
>>33475538Does it still count as terrorism if we're saving the city?
>>33475602>>33475605That's wrong. A terrorist is the guy fighting you, and a freedom fighter is you.
>>33475605Eh, it's not like AC was in any actual danger at any point during this arc.
Kyril Torikov: Telekinetic, Thug, Thief, Terrorist.
>>33475792Well, at least he hasn't pledged himself to Lucifer.
>>33475792When you put it like that, we almost sound violent.
>>33475838Too bad there isn't a Lucifer Mage in Toaru yet.If God's Right Seat can do Gabriel, Michael, Uriel, and Raphael, someone else should be able to do Lucifer.
>>33475861what kind of magic would he/she do anyways?
>>33476013Light probably. Maybe corruption?
You looked at your offshore account. It was the tail end of August. You’d have the better part of four months to make back that money. Besides, if you didn’t have to use it all on this one job, so it was going to be useful either way. That was why you didn’t hesitate to get as many as your could while still leaving a bit left for a rainy day. Who know when you might need it? The plastic explosives were pretty straight forward. All you needed to do was mould it then stick on a disposable and self-contained blasting cap. You got two 5kg bricks of the stuff. It even came with marker to help you partition it and ten blasting caps. Then you moved on to the launchers.“This is based on the RPG-7 launcher,” Gage picked it up, “Works with original warheads but as you know, that’s weak compared to what you boys will be facing.”He hefted its ammunition and loaded it.“An Academy City special penetrator,” he continued, “Designed to be able to pierce a target, wreck it and still have enough power to wreck a second right behind it.”He then demonstrated its operation.“Not too big a blast radius but if you need to knock things over this is your solution.”You also got a box of .45 ACP, 50 rounds in all. Gage gave you that for a discounted price since you were already buying so much. All of this was cleverly disguised as camping gear for ease of transport, even if it was heavy, between the four of you. Still, all of it was lugged back to your dorm and stowed away by the time lunch rolled around. Asuka of course was still busy but maybe she wouldn’t mind if you joined her for lunch. That or you could start planning the assault on STUDY. Or maybe you should check in on Last Order. Hopefully Sparky still had her panties on.>Meet up with Asuka>Plan the assault>Check in on Last Order

>>33476295>>Plan the assault
You still subscribed to the tenet of no news being good news, and thus you got to work on planning the assault. The blueprint for the building where the Chemicaloid was kept was also supplied by Nunotaba. Apparently she was freer to act after yesterday. Asuka’s ability really was helpful there. It looked like her physical abilities would be of more use for the assault though. The reason for that was the huge empty space from the entrance. It was big enough to be a stadium. It probably was. Nunotaba had a rough estimate of power suits though. It stood at just shy of one thousand. The wide open area was probably the best place to occupy the attention of onsite security. Still you think that it was still bit a much for Asuka to handle alone, you’d have to assign someone to help her though.Other than that you were going to make your own entrance with your explosives. With the abilities at your disposable, stealth was completely possible until you decided to blow a hole in the wall. It may not come to that but the faster you could secure the Chemicaloid, the less time the distraction team needed to be fighting those damned suits. There weren’t many other openings otherwise. The remaining thing was to divide the equipment. There were four launchers, and four of you since Asuka would prefer her sword, there was the matter of onsite logistics. How were you going to distribute ammo for the launchers? You had ten shots. Not to mention the fact that you had a second handgun from yesterday. While it was nice, you didn’t exactly have extra mags so ammo. In hindsight you should have bought some M1911 mags while you were at it. Even combat loaded that was eight shots, only two or three more than the personnel that would be onsite in the worst case scenario according to Nunotaba.>Plans?
>>33477267how many possible points of entry into the place?maybe whip a quick little map in msp?
>>33477267Power armor are robots? Bring Sparky to disable/hijack them like the 5-overs in the last LN book.
>>33477267Let me just see if I understand the situation we have to deal with correctly.>The chemicaloid is stored in a fuckhuge building.>Said building has a lot of space between the entrance and the place we want to get to>That space is filled with ~1000 powered suits>There should be a small handful of people also>We can either walk through the front door and try to push/sneak through>Or we could breach the wall somewhere else and go that way, which would be less stealthy but might avoid some of the suits>We have 4 launchers, but 10 shots, so even distribution is impossible>We have an extra gun, but only really have plenty of ammo for our own.>People coming as of now are Kyril, Sagara, Kyousuke, Tadakuni, Asuka. I think? I have trouble with the names. Nakazawa wasn't participating, right?I guess we should tell Kyouko that she has a real job to do here and put her with Asuka on suit fighting. I like the idea of breaching the wall with C4. We could possibly set it up at multiple points so that that everything doesn't rush to a single blast point.
>>33477652Correct for the most part.You have just 50 rounds of .45 ACP, you have three mags between two guns though.
>>33477638I think these robots are controlled by the loli or some shit (I didn't pay much attention to this arc, it was awful).There's honestly no reason Sparky couldn't take on all the powered suits at once and win. She killed dozens of Russian tanks and even more APCs in a couple seconds. This fight can be done in about a minute.
>>33477705would Tadakuni's ability be nullified by the sound of a gunshot if he were to discharge a firearm?
>>33477652Let's see, how to deal with 1000 powered suits with five guys.Directed EMP? We could probably finagle something together. Jam the radio control signal?
>>33477638Lets bring LO and Sparky, they are back up. They can hijack and commandeer all those power armor. I bet they make great additions to the network.
>>33477748>>33477638Guys, it was said in earlier threads that Sparky wasn't gonna be coming on this one. She's not a member of the gang here.Also,>bringing LO anon pls.
>>33477788A little kid can handle an RPG, an besides the whole arena combat thing is going to be a distraction for breaching the walls.
>>33477871>A little kid can handle an RPGWe're awful people.
>>33477871Hey, so, uhNo.
>>33477904Yes, raising arms dealer Last Order is a go go.
>>33477886But he's right. I bet LO would be happy to get included too.
>>33477705How much c4 is needed to make a good sized blast? I don't know dick about the stuff.
>>33477919She should at least learn how to handle a gun.
>>33477886Dude, you know how many prepubescent girls in Raildex can kick your ass and do more damage than an RPG can do?
>>33477267Fire RPGs at the supports in the ceiling- trusses, cross-beams, or whatever.Bring it down on the powered armor after flushing out the humies with non-lethal harassment.Stroll through the rubble and find the chemicaloid.Bada-bing, bada-boom.
>>33478002>Stroll through the rubble and find the chemicaloid...Running away from us in utter terror. AHHHHH!
>>33478001Umidori is just being edgy.
>>33478001Yeah, but LO is, like, several orders of magnitude more concentrated little girl than the rest of them.
>>33478021Disposition of the principle is irrelevant.Disposal of a thousand-strong army of robotic power-armor suites is entirely relevant.
>>33478044Does LO still believe in Santa?
>>33478021We can just use TK to lift her.There is literally nothing that most people can do in that situation.
>nobody has said any word on the actual distribution of forces.Ok. I think we all agree that Asuka is going to be fighting the robots.Do we want Kyril also fighting them or do we go for chemicaloid retrieval?
>>33478086Nope. And wouldn't believe if she heard.
>>33478073Why are we even trying to engage all these suits? Avoiding them altogether would be ideal, but fighting in the halls would still be better than a giant stadium which is ideal for a fucking army. Use them chokepoints.You don't fight the skeleton army, you take out the necromancer animating them, which just happens to be our actual goal in this case anyways.
>Distraction teamAsukaKyouko (assuming she can be recruited for this)Kyril (2 mags of 45acp)all of the rocket launchers (we have TK)all of the rocketsC4>Infiltration teamTadakuniKyousukeSagara (one mag of 45acp)C4Can we breach multiple parts of the facility's walls to raise panic? infiltration sneaks in during the panic and nabs the volcaloid or whatever while distraction team assaults powered suits with hit and run gorilla tactics. Infiltration team blows something else up(nonactive powered suits? a generator maybe?) to raise more panic and we all slip away during the confusion.solid? not solid?
>>33478044Misaka go put some clothes on
>>33478088Precisely.The anon who does not support swift and decisive action should revise his memories of the Thirty-Six Stratagems and other relevant tactical guides and advice.>>33478115Asuka can order the meatbags to leave.Kyril can telekinetically retrieve the artificial flesh-sackThe others can elimnate structural supports with their pseudo-RPGs>>33478127My plan involves dropping a building on the metaphorical skeletal horde and then avoiding combat.
>>33478138Bring Sparky and LO and we are good.We might need LO to conving the chemloli to come with us.
>>33478138>all of the rocket launchers (we have TK)Oh god, now I really want to go crazy, Walpurgisnacht style.
>>33478138Seems solid.Have the heavy lifters fight the robots, while the squishy dudes infiltrate and exflitrate with the target.
>>33478124Then she's not even half the little girl Fremea is.
>>33478138>all of the rocket launchers (we have TK)This would be metagamey as fuck, but I'm tempted to start screaming to just spend five hours finishing that multitasking book so that we can wield all the launchers at once.
>>33478138You wish to issue a firearm to the one with the hypersensitive ears?I question your logic.
>>33478115I was thinking Asuka with a few of the guys giving fire support would attack the front, while Kyril and a group with Nunotaba would go in through breaching a wall and get the target.
>>33478182Where is she anyway? In the US of A?
>>33478183How is that metagamey? Although it's just an assumption that's what finishing the book would do, its one Kyril could make just as well as us.
>>33478189when Sagara shot that guy, he wasn't shook up over the noise.and he's the only character in the team besides us that shot and killed somebody.
>>33478207Right now? Still with Komaba presumably.
I kinda hope Bored somehow cobbles the crap we've said into a couple different plans we can vote on.
>>33478189He can turn it off when he shoots. Hopefully he won't need to, hence why he's on Team Squishy.
>>33478223One thing we're all pretty unanimous on is that shit is going to blow up.
>>33478215...Indeed.I overlooked this data.I am in error.Consider relevant doubt rescinded.
>>33478223I think we should bring goddaam everything, the sihk, the meguca, the level 5, the LO, and all the missles. Shit is so going down that nothing will be left. Somewhere out there, Accelerator would feel like he was missing out on something.
>>33478323Im telling you guys we need to wither Spray paint "YOURE WAIFU A SHIT, STUDY RULEZ FAGGOT"On his dormOrGet Study to somehow ban coffe and music in AC within a week Then we sit back and watch the fireworks
>>33478323Let's not be crazy here. The Sihk need not be involved.
>>33478323>Accelerator: "Something is missing.">Accelerator proceeds to acquire more coffee.>All is right with the world.On a more serious note, do you really wish to involve our imouto(s) and our POLICE COMRADE in our CRIMINAL ENTERPRISES?Please report to your maintenance provider, anon.I believe you are malfunctioning.
>>33478392mah bahd, furgoht sihk ish luwfal guhd. i dun gouf
>>33478392I don't think this is big enough to need Sparky, but it's still big enough that we should seriously consider whether or not LO should be allowed near it.
I find it weird and hilaroud that I've been in this quest since like the 4th-ish thread and I have 0 clue about what the hell is happening anymore I'm literally winging it. Maybe it's because I've only watched Index and that's it
Well first things first you were going to breach along multiple points in the building, you’d have to set aside 500g of plastic explosive for each breaching point though. It was a good idea to breach in different areas just in case you wanted to trick security further. In fact, dummy explosions could be useful but it was a potentially wasteful application of your precious. If you were going to set off explosions might as well bring the building down on the suits while you were at it. You had to be careful not to bring the whole thing down though, you still wanted to retrieve the Chemicaloid, keep Nunotaba alive and not accidentally kill an innocent, as per THIEF rules. Still, you figure that if you could have two points for the retrieval team, you should be okay. You only had ten blasting caps after all.The suits were remote controlled, and while you entertained the thought of jamming that somehow, Nunotaba had said they relied on the Chemicaloid. Short of that Ability jammer, you don’t think there would be a way to stop the signals. Even then you and everyone save Kyousuke would be affected. You didn’t rate your chances highly fighting with nausea. Though you think you had a solution to the distraction team problem. Toshino needed to be brought in. If she wanted a real job then now was her chance to earn her keep. Her inhuman constitution should keep the suits occupied. Asuka and Toshino would do nicely as a distraction indeed.It was a given that Kyousuke and Tadakuni were going to be going to grab the Chemicaloid. Sagara had firearms training and you trusted him to be able to handle any situation given the circumstances. Thus the only issue was where you yourself wanted to be. Did you want to carry all the launchers, its ammunition and the majority of the explosives to support Asuka’s distraction? Or did you want to lead the retrieval team, leaving Sagara to assist the girls?>Distraction team>Retrieval team>Some other plan? (write-in)
>>33478445>hilaroudYeah that's not hilarious, that's not hilarious at all
We should contact Nunotaba or go over our notes on Study to see if we can figure out how the chemicaloid's power controls the suits and see if it can be jammed. (lol skillout speakers).
>>33478445>I've only watched Index.b-b-but, anon, Railgun is the shit.Even if you don't read the manga, at least watch the first season of the anime.Feel Kuroko's pain, anon.The NTR is so real it hurts.
>>33478447>Distraction teamSagara should not be anywhere near that many explosions. His continued hearing is important to the team.Who knows we might actually be able to break through and reinforce the retrieval team.
>>33478447Bring in Sparky, cause she has wannabe hero complex and Kyouko, cause of debt and smidge of save the girl complex.
>>33478546Stop trying to inject more people into this. It's not a good idea.
>>33478530>First season of the animeBut the anime is shit anon. And the dead don't feel any pain, so Kuroko's fine.>>33478447>Distraction team
We don't even know the chemicaloid is a little girl at this point do we? Or what Nunotaba intends to do with it.
>>33478530>Feel Kuroko's pain, anon.>The NTR is so real it hurts.I don't know if I want you to explain further or not
>>33478602Misaka only has eyes for Kamijou, anon-kunKuroko only has eyes for MisakaAnd she goes through a lot of shit for sparky in spite of that.Like pic related
>>33478602Don't worry about it, Kuroko doesn't worry about it as much as her crazy fans do.
>>33478597All we know is that Nunotaba wants them and is willing to pay. Which frankly is all we need to know.
>>33478678Wait I thought she wasn't apart of the lesbian menace? Doesn't she love her like a sister or some shit?I forgot why I think this I don't remember where I heard or saw this
>>33478699She called in a favour, we're not getting paid.
>>33478678To be fair, i'd prefer Kamijou as well if I was her.He's got swag.
>>33478754Can we please bring Sparky into this? LO needs 1000 power suits to bodyguard her.
>>33478754Damn. At least we managed to acquire a source for explosives.
If somebody with a healing factor high-fived Touma, what would happen to them?
>>33478752No room to dodge without taking a lethal counterattack in them there tunnels>>33478759Fair enough- Kuroko is way too forward, after all>>33478751>lesbian menace>groping your sisterlesbians are people, too, anonKuroko is way too gropey and gets an unfair share of s/u/fferingIf Mikoto Misaka was a quest MC, Kuroko would be the obvious best girl that the GM hates and never lets the players love.>>33478809Sparky has a teleporting 'friend' who also happens to be a dedicated-to-justice copSo, NO.
>>33478830Their power would probably stop healing them for the duration of the high five.
>>33478830Probably nothing, since they would probably have to be almost dead for a momentary lapse to kill them, and mortally wounded people don't give high fives.
>>33478830Nothing? As long as there's not something already horribly wrong with them, there's no reason having their powers negated for a second would hurt.Hell, he touches Tsuchi all the time, and he's fine.
>>33478830Nothing?High-fives don't incur wounds, anon.His IMAGINE BREAKERU only works whilst it is being applied, as far as this one knows.
>>33478751Maybe you were confused because she isn't part of the fujoshi menace that haunts this verse. She's totally a lesbian though.
>>33479049Or Bi. When Misaki erased her memories, she told an overly friendly Mikoto she didn't swing that way.
>>33479090Isn't it because her love for her 'onee-sama' is PURE and ONLY FOR ONEE-SAMAI feel like that was a thing or something.I might just be crazy though.Let's not rule that out.Also, Bored is killpost absurd plansLET'S DISTRACT STUDY BY BLOWING UP THE MOON!WE CAN BRIBE ACCELERATOR TO HELP BY OFFERING HIM COFFEE AND LETTING HIM BABYSIT LAST ORDER
>>33479139Too small. We tell Crowley STUDY said that floating upside down is for faggots.
>>33479139Bored takes 40-50ish minutes on average anon, an hour if food or this picture is involved
>>33479198That's actually not true. You might want to try Pixiv friend. A shame that it's futa though.
>>33479233...that explains why she's been such an awesome waifu so far
>>33479198>my sides>>33479233DAMMIT, BOREDI HAD JUST STOPPED LAUGHING anons are so lewd
You think you were better served playing the distraction this time around. Besides, you had two hands and TK, and maybe if you tried you’d be able to heft all launchers at once. The retrieval team would take four blasting caps and 2kg of the good stuff, just in case they needed a quick way out. The rest you were moulding in to improvised explosive devices. As you were preparing that you called up Toshino.“Hey Toshino I got a real job for you now,” you greeted this time.“Sure, as long as I’m not babysitting brats,” she answered.“It’s not exactly legal so keep it quiet around Kaoru.”“You have my attention.”“Come on over to my place, we’ll get you up to speed,” you told her before hanging up.Of course Asuka was free in the afternoon and had joined you shortly after. Toshino thus was a bit surprised to be introduced to the Problem Children.“What’s she doing here?” she asked, head tilted in confusion.“I am naturally a member of the Problem Children,” Asuka stated smoothly, “Why should I not be here?”“What are you up to Torikov?” Toshino eyed the ordnance nervously.“We’re going to go acquire something for a friend of mine,” you replied, “You, Asuka, and I shall be the distraction.”“Seems a bit overkill for a distraction,” she remarked.“Trust me, we’ll need everything here,” you continued, “Anyway, we’re just about to decide on when to hit the place.”As the saying went, “strike while the iron is hot”. However, Asuka had proposed to wait until nightfall to commence operations. Kyousuke countered that striking during the day would draw less heat seeing as there would be civilians out and about. That would delay law enforcement as they managed the crowd. However if you struck at night then the roads would be clear. There was would be literally no civilian casualties and the escape routes would be relatively clear if you needed to make a quick getaway.[1/2]
We really should make time to finish off Multi-tasking before the operation.
>>33479329>Hit them fast, hit them now>Wait for DARKNESS to fall
>>33479360>Wait for DARKNESS to fallDon't endanger civilians when on a job.
>>33479360does the THIEF blood fee per body or incident?
>>33479329>Wait for DARKNESS to fallCivvy casualties are a big no-no, both to THIEF and Kyril himself.
>>33479360>Wait for DARKNESS to fallPolice of any kind always split the operation into parts, one of those parts would more than likely be crowd control so that point becomes void doesn't it?
>>33479360>Wait for DARKNESS to fallBut how DARK Bored?
>>33479329>There was would be literally no civilian casualtiesEnglish, Bored, do you speak it? I'm just teasing you >>33479360Given that we're playing with absurd amounts of fu- er, explosives, it would probably be prudent to avoid civilians wherever possible.Hence,>STRIKE WHILE THE DARKNESS IS THICK AND THE NIGHT IS A CURTAIN UNTO THEIR FOOLISH MORTAL EYESOr something appropriately overly-dramatic.Gotta HAM! it up every now and again, after all.>>33479482>Edgelatornot>SoLeratorPlebian.
>>33479360>Wait for DARKNESS to fall"No killing civvies." Not just a personal creed, but also smart to avoid getting on THIEF's bad side.
Shame we never done finished that multitasking.>>33479360Since it looks like nightfall is gonna win, can we check up on LO at some point before the mission?
You decided to wait for the sun to go down. While you could kill, it didn’t mean you had to. The streets were going to be empty at night, at least in terms of pedestrians. All you had to worry now was execution and the law. Your exit strategy was pretty simple. The van that Kyousuke had identified yesterday would be your way out. Nunotaba was of legal age to have a driver’s license. Whether she had one, legal or not, but the important bit was that she could drive.“It is good that you waited dear,” Asuka started, “This way, we ensure nothing is forgotten.”“We haven’t forgotten anything though did we?” Sagara wondered.“Perhaps,” Asuka seemed unsure herself, “but that is why we have our Dear Leader, don’t we?”“Is she always like this?” Toshino was feeling uncomfortable.“Oh, just be glad that we have not engaged in heavy petting,” Asuka teased, “He seems to favour my hips.”“I thought boss was more of an ass man,” Tadakuni supplied.“Here I was, trying not to be crude,” Asuka complained.“So what were you doing this morning anyway?” you asked.“Oh my friend was transferring in to Tokiwadai today, among other things,” she answered, “I went to greet her and get her settled in. We shall be sharing rooms.”“Friends?” Kyousuke piped up, “Sounds like Sagara’s girlfriend.”“Hey I do too have a girlfriend,” Sagara interjected.“Sure you do,” Tadakuni couldn’t help but snicker.While it was nice trading banter like that, you still had a good three to four hours before the sunset. You could easily be spending the time productively.>Chat with someone (who?)>Read a book (specify)>Arrange some insurance for Last Order
>>33479607OP IS KILLPOST THINGS OUT OF CONTEXT Kanzaki: I don't want to see her be raped by machines.Touma: Okay, that's it. How the hell can you say that when you've never even tried it?

>>33480402>Arrange some insurance for Last OrderI get the feeling that this is here for a reason. Plus, I'm pretty sure after the DARKNESS/Angel Fall arc is when LO gets kidnapped.
>>33480402>Arrange some insurance for Last OrderIs this about how Sparky lives in the dorms at Tokiwadai and she's probably got absolutely no idea about what to do with LO now that nightfall is coming?
I wonder if dicking around with 4 rocket launchers at once will help with the gud gittin' with TK
>>33480555Charles Manson: Do you feel blame? Are you mad? Uh, do you feel like wolf kabob Roth vantage? Gefrannis booj pooch boo jujube; bear-ramage. Jigiji geeji geeja geeble Google. Begep flagaggle vaggle veditch-waggle bagga?Why does Sakuya use pads, anyways?Obviously, being a loli herself, Remilia is an ojousama with refined and superior taste.
>>33480535I don't think it means literal insurance. AC will pay for any medical care anyways as far as LO goes.
>>33480402>“I thought boss was more of an ass man,” Tadakuni supplied.Kyril confirmed for best tastes
>>33480728>Boobs are fake assesThis statement makes sense in the same way that not making any sense makes sense.Breasts serve an important biological function. Buttocks are fat-lumps.Please cease your dogmatic ways and accept that there are many aspects of the female figure, and that singling any one of them out as the 'best' is a fool's errand.Also, I believe the character depicted in the attached image may be sleep deprived, based on the bags under his eyes.I recommend he get some rest.
>>33480939Big tits being attractive is a fairly recent development.Breasts that produce milk can generally produce as much as is needed regardless of their size -- most of the volume is fat, after all, not mammary gland.Early in human development, asses were more desirable in that they usually came with wider hips and were better cushion for mating.
>>33480939You fool he became enlightenedAnd if this wasn't a blueboard and I had the time you'd be in for one hell of a story
>>33481047>Big titsWe're not talking about large breasts, anon.We're talking about breasts in general.Everyone knows that the tiny breasts are the bestest breasts.Regardless, I merely wish for appreciation of females of all shapes, sizes. compositions, alignments, factions, and any other form of categorization one might come up with.Bitches be bitchin', ya dig? I'll bet OP is writing as we speak!
Actually, speaking of things you almost forgot, Last Order couldn’t possibly spend the night with Sparky. There was Shirai, and Aneue too you supposed. If things weren’t going to go as planned then you may end up staying out late. Hell you hadn’t thought about what would happen should the worst come to pass. It wasn’t as scary to you as it was something to be regretful about. You don’t think it’d end up that bad, rather, you would make sure it didn’t. Still, you dialled up Sparky.“Hey aniki, are you almost done with your work?” Sparky greeted.“Hmmm, I’m running late because of it,” you replied, “If I don’t call back, can you leave her with Kaoru?”“Oi, oi, aniki,” she seemed worried now, “Don’t tell me you’re setting up a death flag or something like that.”You laughed a little.“No, nothing like that, just working late that’s all,” you paused, “And uh, Asuka may not make it to curfew either so, you know, thanks for everything.”You could hear here sputtering incoherently on the other side. Thus you dropped the call before she tried to pry further. You were being honest with her. That she would assume certain things was all her imagination. You were a terrible big brother.You also managed about two hours of reading, between chatting with Sagara about leadership and making sure Toshino was roped in to the lads’ shenanigans. Asuka had deemed fit to let you all know that her friend was named Kongou Mitsuko, picture and all. As the clock ticked down and daylight dimmed, you had an itchy feeling that you were forgetting something but you couldn’t remember what.The feeling didn’t settle, even as you finished your last minute checks and locked the door behind you after you left. It was probably just the anticipation, you concluded.
>>33481255Small is best, yes. But I was talking about sexual attractiveness.Back trumps rack in terms of sexual utility.Baggy-eye-man may not be using the correct words, but his sentiment is all too true.
>>33481367Episode 52 End. Going to cut it short here because PACING. See you on Saturday.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorGo time. A death flag has been raised. The Clash or Dead Kennedys? When writefag and /tg/ meet, the story begins.I’m still around for questions for about an hour or two.

I'm sure whatever problem we are forgetting can be solved with enough explosives.

>>33481691I want to see how Asuka would react to Kyril in a well-tailored suit.

>>33481392I can't think of anything off of the top of my head, but I think you know Raildex better than I do, so, here goes:Espers can have powers that involve physically affecting themselves, can't they?Shapeshifting and messing with flesh/blood/bone, that kind of thing.
>>33483207I think Bored might be ded, so yeah, they can. Tsuchi and Gunha can heal themselves, and Kakine could strengthen his body (and eventually just made a new body for himself that he can form into whatever he wants).There's also Unabara, though he more and less just has absolute control over his body through TK. Sort of Accelerator style.
>>33483342Thanks, based anon.Just wanted to confirm things.To show my appreciation, have a dashing kitten rescue!
