>>33548962"DID YOU START WORLD WAR 2, DETECTIVE 382?" you crackle.He's looking at a photo. "Hmm? Not now, Bull, I'll play with you later."He seems... entranced with it.
As detective 382, you gave Slick specific instructions to arrest 606 and put the employee in this cell.You find a woman with the label "607". The photo you find shows 606 as a man who most likely escaped by now with some kind of book.That fucking red-coated idiot.
question 607it's sunday night op, everyone's getting rdy for work. maybe tomorrow?
>>33549552Actually, thanks for bringing that up. You're definitely right. I keep forgetting that my work schedule is definitely abnormal compared to most of the people who read this.I'll shelve the art but write the story better tomorrow. Have a nice night!
you too :)stay cool op
>>33549622I'll play. I have three hours until I have to leave.
>>33549622Do you want to save this thread, or will you just restart Part 9 tomorrow and repost the art?>captcha: concede titieov
Eh, if it's lasted this long, we might as well see if we can keep it up until tonight. Then we could just pick up where we left off.
Whoa, that was close!
It shouldn't be much longer now.
>>33570954>>33557397>>33549824>>33559913>>33553217>>33563066>>33565773>>33567769>>33570953Holy fuck. I was just planning to make a new thread, but then it said that there was a duplicate file. Then I saw this was alive. Whoa.Alright, let's continue with suggestions for that 382 thing, you psychos.
>>33571904Someone archived the thread when there were only twenty or so posts, so it would've been a waste to let it die.382: Ask the woman what happened here when the men broke in.>captcha: also lystssn
>all those bumps must be just one guy op question that blond, ask for her ID. Falsely charge her with involvement to make sure she tells the truth.
>>33572146Don't ruin the magic, you insolent whelp.>>33572034They did it so neatly too.Also, both of those captchas are amazing."Hey, miss," you say. "What happened?" For good measure, you threaten her as being double charged for the case.You look closer at the photograph and the lady. How did Slick mistake this for that? Now that you think about it, should she really be in here?She cautiously lifts up a hand and waves.
>>33572340OH MA GERD! she just made a hidden communist signal! Quick! Taze her!Now ask the indian/easterner/aboriginal/??? what happened
>>33572340Wave back? Ask the brown guy what happened.
>>33572483You wave back before you can catch yourself.>>33572447If you tazed everyone for waving at you, you'd have nothing left for Slick.Yeah, what is he? You've worked together with 203 for some time now. In fact, you depend on each other for more reasons than one. Still, there's more pressing conservation topics at hand."Prisoner 203. What happened?""Uh. Some dudes came in and zapped the guards. Then they took the bell-bottom jeans and pressed a button. Then the robot came through the wall and started shooting them. I couldn't see what happened next due to the angle."Not the bell-bottom jeans.
>>33572675Release 607, she's clearly innocent.
>>33572675Job's done, pack up, give Bull a biscuit and use the breakin as evidence that 60? was a communist spy in your testimony
>>33572737>>33572750You have your guard cuff 607 and bring her out of her cell.You catch her looking back at 203 before she's distracted by Bull LOVE module.
>>33572675I guess we've found the real culprit, then. Check to see if this fits with the existing evidence against 606.
>>33572955Have Bull escort 607 to her appointed trialInvestigate 607's room
>>33572955Should we give it flirting advice?
>>33573031Gross, it's a pet.>>33572974Perhaps this is a weird time to remind yourself, but you're in cahoots with 203. Still, 606 escaping prison is a big thing, and you can incriminate that on him. And being a fascist and zapping two guards unconscious.>>33573024607's innocent, isn't she? Slick just pulled the wrong person by one digit. God, you hate these numbers.You package the rest of the evidence and end up with a photo of fascist 606 and his... her? His her feminine shirt.You give a thumbs up to 203 as you close his cell's shutter. Bull lovingly zaps your hair.
>>33573262So that's done. Is there anything else we need to do today?
>>33573262Go find Slick and tell him he's a dumbass, then do detective stuff.
>>33573364You're not really paid based on how much work you do, per say. You just kind of fabricate evidence against whoever Prelestny Fashion wants gone. In this case, they don't care too much. Communist infiltrators are all too common these days. Like you!Long story short, you have a lot of free time.>>33573402Seems like a waste of a good mood, but you make a mental note in your head if you run into him.You fix your hat. How should you spend today's afternoon?
>>33573576Cosplay with evidence
>>33573576Gambling at a smoky bar.
>>33573657>>33573668(Apologies for delay, my connection is acting up.)You get back to your office and consider a bar. What should you grab from the evidence locker to wear?
>>33573892fuck cosplaying, rob the counter
>>33573892Get to the bar.
>>33573892We look fine, let's go.
>>33573964Your arms? At first, you thought of explaining it away as tucking them behind your arms like the proud man you are.BUT THEY'RE ACTUALLY RETRACTABLE ROBOT ARMS, MOTHERFUCKER.>>33573934Despite being a detective, you're not allowed to perform armed robbery.>>33573962>>33574010Huh. But where? What's the creative name of the place? And its style?
>>33573892Our Bee outfit. That's always a great icebreaker.
>>33574085The drunken scorpion. Where all hard boiled detectives go to brood.
>>33574085The Dollar SignGotta blend in (and it's the only bar)
>>33574085Big Dick's Halfway Inn
>>33574209Too rich.>>33574131Too depressing.>>33574217Isn't that a strip joint?>>33574090You put on your childhood bee costume. Well, it's as accurate of a bee as a chicken leg is of a duck. Your Style Detector rates you as STYLISH out of DIVINE.Any more bars? You consider the three, but are open to other ones.
>>33574085The Busy Beehive, where all the hard workers of the country go to relax and put their earnings to good use. Or so their marketing says.
>>33574279I don't know if we'll fit in, though.
The Sickle and Hammer Joint. For all the totally not-communist-spies.>>33574328Pessimist, gotta go fast!
>>33574272>Any more bars?>>33574279Which is secretly a popular Communist hangout, but they tend to get overlooked because bees are hard workers who exchange goods and service with the flowers... or something. Propaganda is weird.>captcha: John ketpaio
>>33574272Mein Comfy ChairTotally not a fascist bar.
>>33574439That place was shut down over mass cocaine use and unauthorized chairs.>>33574378>>33574279You pull up in front of the Busy Beehive. Looks like whoever designed it wasn't much of an artist experienced with buildings.
>>33574533Head on in. Brace yourself for compliments on your costume.
>>33574588walk in like you're on broadway
>>33574643>>33574588The bar is deserted except for the bartender. And the person's not wearing a bee costume.
>>33574773Talk about bad timingorder a drink and wait, maybe some gal will appear and sidle next to you
>>33574773Get some mead.
Rolled 50>>33574773Chat up that barkeep
>>33574966You successfully avoid tripping on the doorstep.>>33574811>>33574832"Mead.""Sir, this is a bar, not a medieval tavern," she says.
>>33575020FLIRT WITH HERCOMPLIMENT HER BEE HAT
dayum, hit on barkeep with your savvy social skills.Goodnight op, stay funny, all hopes to your future success as a drawfag.
>>33575020Then we must ask for straight honey.
>>33575020Ginger beer, then.Slow day today?
>>33575088I'll steer my destiny with the flow, man. Night.>>33575078Unlike the manager of the 12th floor, you don't mind talking to women."Hat. Nice," you say."It's part of the uniform. If I take it off before my shift ends, I get electrocuted.">>33575114"Honey. Give me sustenance."She sighs and goes to lift a barrel.>>33575184"Today. Business slow.""URRRRGH."You translate that as, "It's always slow in a bar modeled after a beehive."
>>33575290Ask for one of those loopy straws. We need to drink this like a true bee would.
>>33575290Talk about our pet, she'd love to listen.No offense OP, but this is kind of dragging along.
>>33575290>cram that honey in your mouthFlirt with the bartender?
>>33575290We speak Urglish? Neat. Pour out a glass of honey and respond in the same language.>"HURRRRR">translation: "Really? You'd think that honey would be more popular with the folks around here."
>>33575424You get a loopy straw when she slams down the barrel.>>33575483You consider how easily people have choked to death on sweet, sweet honey.>>33575439Dude, don't worry about my feelings. You're right. I don't the first thing about pacing. And since I got work tomorrow, this is the best place to awkwardly end part 9.Actually, does anyone have any tips or ideas on how to go forward? It's desperate, but it could really help. I'm still new to all of this.
>>33575527Do what your heart tells you. Maybe a soldier fighting fascists?
>>33575618Whoa, that's weird. I already had plans for such a character. But right now, I think there's a lot of plot-lines to wrap up first. A lot of plot-lines I have no idea what to do with or make entertaining.
>>33575527It helps to try and think of what events will happen in the mid- to long-term, and see how the players react, as opposed to trying to create a setting and events based on their decisions.
>>33575527I know it sounds dumb, but sudden PLOT and characters conveniently showing up even when it doesn't always make sense does a lot to keep things moving.Check out this guyhttps://archive.foolz.us/tg/search/username/Lego%20Quest/type/op/I think it's close-ish enough to what you do that you can adapt a bit of his style. He's really good at never letting the story drop for more then an update.And thanks for the thread OP. When are you running the next one?
>>33575717I think I get that. Like how reactions to things happening is like 90% of video games, but how you react is the puzzle and fun.>>33575736That's actually really creative and time-efficient to use Lego figures to tell a story in that format.I think the next thread... Wednesday night? It really depends, and I won't bore you with all the random variables that could led to or blockade it. But I'll aim for a Wednesday.
