We'll start from another perspective and switch back to Akari's after a bit again today, because I like the way that fills out other characters and gives a bit of extra background and whatnot. Being Mami is suffering Archives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Raildexhttp://archive.foolz.us/tg/search/username/EsperQuestQM/type/op/Twitter: https://twitter.com/EsperQuestQMYou are Tomoe Mami, a Level 4 esper and what the uninitiated might refer to as a 'magical girl'.And, for some reason, you just can't get laid.Seriously, what the hell? You're pretty sure you're a babe.But you just can't get any.Hell, you walked in on the Twins (who everyone knows are entirely enamored with you) during one of their homoerotic, incestuous 'tickle fights,' right in the middle of the main office of Judgment Branch 090.You walked in on them.They stared at you, faces bright red from embarrassment and excitement intermingled, the thin veneer of sweat giving their identical faces a glossy sheen, and what did you do?You winked, bit your lip, asked, “Who said you could get started without me?” and made to remove your blouse.And, two geysers of nasally-ejected hemoglobin later, they were unconscious and you were shirtless and entirely unmolested.And, as you helped their sleeping forms back into those stupid, overly-frilly dresses of theirs, knowing Tsuruya-san and her red-headed wife (those two are so cute together, it makes you want to vomit- in a good way) would be back from their patrol soon enough, you refrained from swearing, refrained from seeking release of any sort, refrained from admiring their petite forms as you wiped the sweat and blood off of the Twins' alabaster skin.Because you, Tomoe Mami, are a REFINED and ELEGANT LADY!…GOD DAMMIT.You pound your fists on the desk as you finish doing the Twins' paperwork.You need a fu- you really need a drink.
You sigh as you pour yourself another shot.Alcoholism isn't something a lady should indulge herself in, you suppose, but... you are a Level 4, after all, as well as a-Your thoughts and potential plot advancement are interrupted by a package thumping down onto the desk before you.“You're Akari-chan's sempai, correct? Would you be so kind as to make sure she receives this?”The voice asking is gentle and sweet, you think.You lift your eyes to see a girl- no, a woman- with several distinguishing traits.The first and foremost being her hair, which is long and silky and a shade of red that makes you think of the motherland.The second being her kind smile, which makes you feel all melty inside.The third is the Saiga-12S semi-automatic shotgun slung under her arm, and the presumably-bulletproof vest covered with pouches that are probably stuffed with ammunition.But... perhaps the strangest thing about her is the way she seems to have noticed that gently-glowing gemstone of yours.Her smile wavers, if only for a moment. She bends over and snatches up your shot-glass, downing its contents.She says something in your native tongue, slightly less-than-fluently.A warning, by the tone, and you know the tone all-too-well, but an observation, if you were to consider only the words themselves.Were you to translate it (why would you, though?), it would be something like, “I didn't expect to see another of [those] so soon.”You know full well what the implications of her statement were.You also know full well that you can't let her leave without returning a quip of your own.“Where did you happen to acquire such a fine weapon, American?”The words are innocent enough, but the accusation comes with the tone.She doesn't seem too perturbed by your question, though, and she answers, in Japanese once more, her tone sing-song and carefree, “It was a gift~”You pour yourself another shot as she leaves.
The only thing you can think when the door swings open, not ten minutes later, is another word from home.Blyad.A part of you wonders what Floofykins-san would think.Another part of you worries about the part of you that's concerned with the opinions of that freaky cat-thing.… Okay, I think that's enough plot shenanigans for now, back to Akariiin shenanigans! You are Akari Takamichi, and you're really kinda getting worried here.Mato's still big.And it's been a few hours now. You expertly direct the Skill-Outs in the construction of their human pyramid as they try to rescue a kitten from a particularly-tall tree, and, after a series of dangerous undulations that nearly caused your heart to jump out of your chest and run around in circles of sheer panic, the one in the sleeveless leather jacket (no, not /that/ one, the one with the mohawk!) manages to grab the stranded feline, much to the relief of the rest of his gang.After figuring out that it wasn't tagged, you directed the young men to the nearest animal shelter, where you'd suspect many of them will be volunteering in the near future.With that problem solved, and more young men turned towards productive roles in society, you turn to Mato, who has been watching the whole affair with a smirk plastered onto her face.You find yourself almost-rubbing her bared midriff and shake your head.“Mato-chan, when are you going to go back to normal size?”She puts her hands together and places them to the side of her head, then rests her cheek on them.“When you go to sleep?”She shakes her head, then draws a line with her finger. She holds her hands just short of each end of the imaginary line, cupping the space between the endpoints.What is she- OH! While she's sleeping. “It's a gradual change, then?”She nods emphatically.
>>33583422Light powers, and that mentality.Yup, now I'm certain. Mami is Lucifer.But a sexy russian Lucifer.
Too many quests running at the same time! AaaaaGood to see you again OP.
>>33583381This is my favorite Mami.
Huh.Well, that's good to know.It's a few hours into the afternoon, now, but you should patrol for awhile longer.Then again, you might want to report back to your sempais about the whole MOP-MAN thing.Mato tried texting them earlier, but they didn't respond. They're probably busy with paperwork or something.What do you do?>Patrol! (Roll 2d6, 1d10, and 2d10, if you'd be so kind)>Head back to the office!

>>33583888They would be way better if they were these twins.Not that i mind, just saying.
>>33583977I disagree. Those twins were for being disturbing.
>>33583973No, different universe.Not the same as the canon one either, as may or may not be obvious.I'm sorry, this update might take a little longer than usual.It's pretty silly
>>33583977Those twins are terrible.
>>33584106You do realise that I can't post the same image twice, right?
>>33584036What a shame, it would have been interesting to see them cross paths.

Well, you haven't reported it yet, and Anti-Skill didn't make too big a deal out of it, so reporting your bizarre encounter with the madman and his mop can wait!Mato seems to understand your decision before you can even tell her about it, if the approving nod and offered hand are any indication.You take her hand, and let her lead you through the boundaries of the Strange, content with the physical contact and the relative quiet.It's not too long before Mato abruptly stops, dropping into a low crouch and pointing to her ear, then making a gesture indicating that there's something around the corner.The building you're crouching by seems like it used to be a bakery, maybe.Before it became a canvas, anyways.After a few moments of tense silence, you hear it, too.Clanking.Like, a LOT of clanking.Almost like a couple of chicks in big metal armor marching down the street.Pff, what a ridiculous notion.You peek around the corner and see...…A couple of chicks in big metal armor, marching down the street.Huh.Each of them has white hair (well, the one in the middle's wearing a helmet, but you can assume) that provides sharp contrast with their black and red armored suits, and they're all carrying absurdly-sized weapons- oversized guns and golden chainsaw-swords, for the most part- and marching in formation.It takes you a moment to recognize where you've seen this before.Nee-chan has figurines that look like these.They're, uh, they're...Sororitas, maybe?You'd think they were cosplaying, but... their weapons and armor look so... real.
Mato pulls you back away from the corner and pantomimes furiously.“They're just cosplayers,” you say, adding a “probably” under your breath, “and even if they're real, they'd only shoot us if they thought we were cultists or aliens or something.”Somehow, that last part seems to do the exact opposite of what you had wanted it to do (which was 'reassure Mato-chan', by the way), because she grabs your shoulders and puts her face close to yours.Heh.Mato smells nice.Er, you mean, uh...Mato's staring into your eyes, the kind of stare that one directs towards a person when one is trying to determine their sanity.You stare back, giving her your best 'I'm totes not crazy, super-duper promise' (which is something of a sight to behold, admittedly) in return.She sighs soundlessly and releases you, making a gesture you loosely interpret as 'FINE'.With that settled, and Mato holding your hand in a death-grip, you:>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)>Ignore them and move on, you don't have time to waste on these cosplayers, despite the fact that they may well be packing absurd amounts of heat>Something else? (Write-in)
>>33584378>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)Complement them on the detailed armor!
>>33584378>Ignore them and move on, you don't have time to waste on these cosplayers, despite the fact that they may well be packing absurd amounts of heatThis seems like its going in to magic territory. That's never good.
>>33584378>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)H-hi?
>>33584378>>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)We have to properly greet the Servants of the Emperor.
>>33584378>>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)Admire their cosplay!
>>33584378>Run up to the women and ask if you can get a picture with them for your onee-sanYes
>>33584378>>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)
>>33584440 this is Academy City, anon, actual militarized powered armor is a thing here- that 10 on the d10 was for authenticity in this case If magic gets involved, it'll be with lots of foreshadowing, and a good reason.Nothing less.
>>33584378>Step out around the corner, greet the murder-nuns (do you say anything in particular?)Ask what order they are?
>>33584483This works too.
>>33584493So the Mami being a magical girl is not literal? Even with the gem and bunnycat?
>>33584483>>Run up to the women and ask if you can get a picture with them for your onee-sanI like this changing from >>>33584459
>>33583381>You are Tomoe Mami, a Level 4 esper and what the uninitiated might refer to as a 'magical girl'.Are you saying that she's a level 4 esper who pretends to be magic or are you saying that she's magic and pretends to be a level 4 esper? Or is she like Tsuchimikado and she knows magic but she can't really do it anymore because she's an esper now?
>>33584584I think she is a Level 4 Esper, and her powers make her look like something others would call a magical girl. Hence the 'uninitiated'.
>>33584493 So what you're saying is that 10 made them into real authentic Sisters of Battle. This is going to be fuuuun.
>>33584584>uninitiatedDude, a satanist(or mutantcatanist) cult.She is a cultist. A level 4 esper russian cultist.That is also a Lucifer
>>33584539 that would be the foreshadowing, she won't be doing anything magical without good reason, on account of the shenanigans at work behind-the-scenes.What I'm saying is, I'm not gonna be like 'LOL MAGIC' out of nowhere because of a random encounter.>>33584584Anything further on the subject would be spoilers, I think.>>33584451>>33584459>>33584472>>33584486>>33584504>>33584550Run up to the bolter bitches>>33584483>>33584543>>33584550Greet and acquire images for proof to nee-chan>>33584440Ignore the bolter bitchesNee-chan will dig this!Writing!
>>33584675You're the best!>>33584657I hope we can get a good picture!
>>33584675Muh sides.Get your mind outta the gutter! saved
>>33584710I'm pretty sure your mind is even further in the gutter than his!
>>33584675How can one man, be so based?
>>33584675If Mato can shapeshift her body, does that mean she could become a Futanari/Hermaphrodite?
>>335846750/10 not enough abs. Love ya
>>33584839Her abs are smooth, but ROCK HARD , because BRS isn't depicted with a six-pack Local police would be 'praetors', right?I'm not the best at the latin stuffs
>>33584952Is there a reason for it to be in latin?>>33584836plsno
>>33585018 These are some dedicated cosplayers, anon
>>33585040Well with those outfits that's a given!
You suddenly realize, you need pictures of this.“C'mon, Mato-chan, let's go take pictures!”The look Mato gives you is difficult to describe with mere words.If one had to describe it, though, like for a quest or something, the most proper word would probably be something like, “Wat.”But you're too busy dragging her (geez, she's heavy!) around the corner to notice her nigh-indescribable expression.There seem to be seven sisters in all, and, as you run up to them, they halt, forming a line that spans the entire road.It is at this point that the metaphorical spaghetti begins falling out of your pockets.How are you supposed to act in this kind of situation, anyways?Mato seems equally fazed.The helmeted sister, who also happens to be the center-most one, steps forward as you draw to a halt.She bangs her fist on her metal-plated breast and bellows, [GREETINGS, YOUNG ONES! I AM SISTER ONOE!]Her voice sounds like astronauts on TV, when they make that static-y sound before and after talking.You wave meekly. “H-hi! I'm Takamichi Akari, and this,” you say, gesturing to Mato, “is Tsuruya Mato!”There's a second, louder clatter as her sisters duplicate the salute.[YOU BEAR THE INSIGNIAS OF THE LOCAL PRAETORS! IF IT IS NO TROUBLE, MIGHT YOU BE OF ASSISTANCE TO THESE HUMBLE SERVANTS OF THE EMPEROR?]
You scratch the back of your head. “Well, I just wanted to take a picture, but, uh-”[A PICTURE? WHY DID YOU NOT SAY SO IMMEDIATELY?! WE WOULD BE OVERJOYED.]The sisters immediately form up, striking a remarkably cute group pose.Mato, who is less than enthused about the whole ordeal, snaps a picture of you and the sisters on her phone.The sisters act as if nothing cute has just occurred and return to formation, though you note that one of them is touching up the little french flower-thingie-insignia on her cheek with one of those make-up pencil doohickeys.Onoe-san regards you interestedly.You give her armored waist a hug and thank her, then:>Ask what she needed help with>Tell her your girlfriend is freaked out by their armor (she has sensitive ears), then realize that you just told some stranger that Mato is your girlfriend >>Use this as an excuse to leave?>>Use this as a reason to... (write-in)>Show her your powers!>Tell her you'll help, no questions asked!>Other (write-in) Unlimited decision works! It's hard to find pictures of sororitas with helmets on

>>33585697Well we rolled real high whatever it's for.
>>33585739Why do we roll two numbers? Higher means tougher right?
>>33585828>implying there's some sort of logical system to my tableyou roll one die for each axis
>>33585859>>implying there's some sort of logical system to my tableI'm not surprised, but a little sad.
>>33585948There is, but it's not like a 'difficulty' thing.It's more category-based.The 'difficulty' thing comes into play with the 1d10, assuming it's applicable.
You giggle when Onoe pats you on the head. “Mato-chan's normally really nice, but she... lost her voice and has really sensitive ears, and I think your armor kinda freaks her out.”Onoe nods at you conspirationally. [AND HOW HAVE YOU DETERMINED THAT THIS MATO-CHAN IS, AS YOU SAY, “NICE”?]Oh, that's easy! “She's my girlfriend! We slept together this morning and she said she'd take responsibility!”You manage to remain completely unaware of what you just said for the entire span of two seconds.Then, you realize what you just said.Mato appears to be beet-red, as do the sisters, who have converged in a circle behind Onoe-san to whisper and giggle amongst themselves. Words like 'yuri' and 'pettan' and 'lolicon' are used, and the latter two seem to spark intense miniature debates when mentioned.Onoe-san, for her part, is helmeted, and therefore capable of pretending she isn't blushing like crazy.She pats you on the head, then makes an 'I'm watching you' hand gesture at Mato, pointing from her visor to Mato's eyes.
>>33586305Oh right. I forgot that she looks older right now. Hue heu hu
“A-anyways, what'd you need help with, Onoe-san?”[AH, OF COURSE. I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN.] She pounds a fist on her chest again.[WE SEEK OUR ONII-SAMA, BATTLE-BROTHER ABE! HE SHOULD BE RECIEVING INSTRUCTION FROM ONE 'TSUKUYOMI KOMOE' AT A CERTAIN HIGH SCHOOL. WE MUST RETRIEVE HIM IN TIME FOR THE CONCERT.]At this, Mato rolls her eyes, fake-sighs, and begins tapping away at her phone.She makes a 'follow me' gesture.Wordlessly, you follow, because Mato knows what's up.The Sisters form up and follow along, too.You think it's a pretty decent walk from here to A Certain High School, but you don't exactly know the way.In fact, you're not sure why Mato knows the way- not that you have a particularly keen sense of direction, especially compared to Mato-chan- but you don't really press it.While you're walking, do you have anything you want to ask about?>This 'concert'>The sisters' armor and weapons>Why Mato knows where A Certain High School is>Other?

>>33586701Here I was, hoping she'd have an onii-chan.
>>33586768Don't we know that she has an older sister? We've mistaken BRS-Mato for her currently.
>>33586803What I want and what I get are two different things anon.
>>33586849So it goes.
You follow along behind Mato-chan, only lamenting that she's wearing that coat of hers a little bit.She seems to be grumpier like this- when she's big, that is.You wonder why.Maybe it's hormones or something?You look over your shoulder. Onoe-san and her sisters are keeping up just fine.“Say, what concert were you talking about, anyways?”[SURELY YOU MUST HAVE KNOWN THAT MIKU-SAMA WAS HAVING A CONCERT TODAY!] She immediately produces a poster from... her gun?Is her huge gun really just a purse?…That's either really weird or really cool.You're not sure which.Maybe a little of both?She unrolls the poster and shows you a girl who looks kinda familiar.Turqoise twintails and eyes, a cutesy pose, some silly bangles on her wrist, and what looks like a school uniform and a pair of thigh-high boots...The advertised concert is scheduled for July 20- in other words, today.[DO YOU RECOGNIZE MIKU-SAMA'S NAME NOW THAT YOU MAY COMPARE IT TO HER BEAUTIFUL FACE?]You tilt your head a little.“Miku-sama, huh?” You've heard of her, you think. Yeah! You asked Nee-chan if she wanted to go (honestly, a girl like that? That's right up Nee-chan's alley- or so you'd thought) to a Miku concert a few months back, and she had told you she already had plans. In fact, she told you that just about every weekend, which is also apparently when Miku's concerts normally are.Hmm.That Miku girl definitely looks like someone, but she's too short, even with her platform boots. There's a strange something in the girl's eyes.It's not quite greed, you think, but...
It's almost like... possessiveness, maybe?It kinda reminds you of the way Mato looked at you this morning.[IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE YOU RECOGNIZE MIKU-SAMA AFTER ALL.]…WAIT A SECOND.>Gimme 3 rolls of 1d100 apiece to see if Akari can make connections!
Rolled 87>>33587264This is horrible. Our best friend can't be an idol!
Rolled 76>>33587264Let's go!
>>33587302Akari is good detective!
>>33587291 You're right, she can't >>33587302Oh COME ON.Not even a little incompetence?The lowest (>>33587301) passes the DC plenty handily.Did you really need to roll that high? Where'd you guys steal these rolls from, anyways?
>>33587374I prayed to Sappho for them.
>>33587441Hellborn is roll-under. This quest can keep the high rolls from there. They don't want em anyway.
>>33587513Exactly my point.
>>33587513That's exactly it, we take their high rolls, and they take our low rolls. It's mutualy beneficial.
Your brain snaps the clues together like... like the pieces of a puzzle designed for two-year-olds.No challenge at all.Miku looks just like Mato would, if Mato was shorter, rounder, cuter, less pasty, less scarred, less ROCK SOLID, and an idol.In fact, big-Mato looks almost exactly like this chick.And big-Mato is basically an older Mato!And Mato said she had an older sister, but that she wouldn't say who- you always assumed it was the girl who looked like an older Mato, but that actually WAS Mato!WHICH MEANS THAT MIKU IS MATO'S ONEE-CHAN.HOLY SHIT.YOU KNOW MATO BECAUSE NEE-CHAN INTRODUCED YOU.NEE-CHAN IS ALWAYS GONE WHEN MATO'S ONEE-CHAN HAS CONCERTS.…Nee-chan isn't stalking Mato's big sister, right?… right?Mato glances over her shoulder.Your phone vibrates.'Congratulations. You finally figured out who my sister is.'…Is Mato-chan giving you lip?You're about to type out an appropriately-sassy response when Mato leads you through the doors of A Certain High School, to where students are just starting to file out of a couple of classrooms.You try your best not to regard them with disdain.After all, Mato-chan only barely managed to avoid summer school, herself.
>>33587800Huh, we've got some weird onee-chans around in this quest.
>>33587800>idolshit commencesThis really is MGNQ with all the grimdark excised.
It doesn't take long for Onoe-san to spot her 'BATTLE BROTHER'.In fact, it wouldn't take anyone long to spot him.Because he's HUGE.He is to the average high-schooler what big-Mato is to normal-Mato.Except instead of being way taller, he's both wider and taller.He scoops up the seven huge, armored girls into a hug.All at once.I.E., he LIFTS them off of their feet.Mato blinks in surprise at the display, then reaches out for your hand.You accept the hand-holding.Onoe-san and her 'sisters' all crowd around the two of you, possibly because they've recognized the resemblance between Mato and her older sister, but also to thank you.YOU GOT SEVEN PHONE NUMBERS FROM CRAZY ARMORED CHICKS!(Score?)After the sisters and their 'onii-sama' have left (with directions to the concert provided by Mato-chan, no less!), a little pink-haired girl comes up to you and tugs on your jacket.“Excuse me,” she says, in a little voice that just makes you wanna pick her up and hug her forever and ever, “but, um, are you Takamichi-san?”You blink.How does this kid know who you are?And what's she doing in a High School?Most importantly, does she have a license to be this cute?>Acknowledge that you are, in fact, Takamichi Akari>Tilt your shades forward and squint at her and say something cool like “Who's asking” or “I might be” (Write-in to provide something cool, because Akari... well, she just isn't)>Ignore her (like a big jerk)>Offer to help her find her big sibling>Other?

>>33588504Okay, Mr. Crit-sanI couldn't remember what everyone called her in canon, and I didn't know Tsukuyomi off of the top of my head, so I was figuring it might have been one of those things where the engrish translation flips the name around.
You pat her on the head and nod. “That's right, I'm Takamichi Akari! And who might you be?”Mentally, you're preparing yourself to start frantically looking for an older sibling.Mato looks amused for some reason.The little girl bows excitedly.“Tsukuyomi-sensei! But you can call me Komoe-chan!” She pauses awkwardly. “I mean, y'know, if you want to.”…She's... a teacher?She smells like smoke, now that you've been snapped entirely back into reality after having your attention diverted by your hand being held.“I, uh... okay, Komoe-chan.”“Anyways, Steve-san wanted me to talk to you!”… What? Why?She drags you bodily into a classroom before you can voice these remarkably-pertinent questions.“I'm something of an expert on Pyrokinesis, you see,” she begins, only to be interrupted by the sudden THUNK of Mato's face hitting a desk.“... Holy shit, kid, are you already asleep?”…Wait, what?Did she just-Mato-chan does seem to be out cold, but what kind of teacher is this girl?Komoe-chan clears her throat.“Anyways, Steve-san said you were more focused on fire than on heat, which is where the real power of Pyrokinesis comes into play.” She begins drawing diagrams on the blackboard. Is this going to be an entire lecture?

>>33589611I'm also a little bummed that we didn't go for holding fire in the palm of our hand, but increased combat effectiveness is never a bad thing I guess. I wonder what's the toughest material we could melt our way through at present?
>>33589611If our power is thermal manipulation, or I assume at least increase, couldn't we use it to increase someones body-temperature to boil them alive ? Or at least have them suffer heatstroke ?I'm not familiar with the setting, so not too sure how flexible those powers are.
>>33589721We could always spontaneously combust them.
>>33589721Our power is as malleable as our psychosis allows it to be, so if we can rationalize it we can conceivably do it. I don't think Akari would be very fond of boiling people alive though.
>>33589764Eh, a human would die long before you reach the temperature necessery to cause the body to combust, if its at all possible.
>>33589823Sure it's possible. It's the Raildex universe were in here.
>>33589684But you can hold fire in the palm of your hand, anon!Just not fireballs.>>33589721Akari could very easily be a killing machine, yeah.But she isn't.Because Akari is a good girl.>>33589764>>33589823Both of you are correct>>33589787You. You are the most correct! my anons are so scary sometimes >>33589962Oh, wait, this one's the most correct.
I want to use newly acquired heat beams to cook popcorn.I also want to burn ants.
I want the power to make people look like they're blushing with no ill effects and the crazy necessary to make them feel the appropriate feelings.
>>33589991I meant mainly if its possible to just heat them up enugh to get heatstoke, or suffer dehydration without outright boiling them, or would that be a "roll for potential angst" kind of thing ?
>>33590057Like to stealthily use our powers?
>>33590124More controlled than stealthy, bhut yeah, indirect.
>>33590057>ROLL TO SEE IF YOU CRY>AND, IF SO, HOW MANY TEARS YOU SHEDIt's just not something that Akari would consider.For that to happen, something crazy would need to be going on- like someone making a write-in and getting the majority vote on something that would involve using your powers in a rather horrific way.Provided that (or something more plot-related or something) you actually killed or almost-killed someone, you'd get a lot of 'WHAT THE HELL, AKARI' type reactions, I think.Mostly, though, you're not quite, er... gentle? enough to do that sort of thing.Consider this: Accelerator, in his fight with Kamijou, could easily have magnified the vectors of Touma's spine as he rotated to deliver his punch.He could've killed Mr. Imagine Breaker without so much as a second thought.But he didn't.Because that's not his brand of crazy Also, I'm writing!
>>33590144I mean our whole schtick is 'blow it up with fire'. Not very discrete is what I'm saying.
>>33590196>Consider this: Accelerator, in his fight with Kamijou, could easily have magnified the vectors of Touma's spine as he rotated to deliver his punch.>>He could've killed Mr. Imagine Breaker without so much as a second thought.No, he couldn't have because he never got within range of any part of Touma's body that wasn't IB.Now, he could have just stomped the ground and collapsed the entire area 10 miles into the earth and then shot balls of plasma into it for good measure. That would have actually been easier since
>>33590196>>Because that's not his brand of crazy More that he assumed Touma was completely immune to his power since he didn't work out that it was just the hand. Which is really rather dumb for someone who is supposed to be something of a genius, but eh. Clearly he justs lacks observational skills, it's not lazy writing at all, right?
>>33590299-since Touma was good at dodging and blocking. Massive AoE is how he would have needed to do things.
>>33590299Accelerator can move as fast as he pleases, and generally do whatever he wants.I'm just trying to give a hopefully-disturbing example of practical power-usage and point out that PERSONAL REALITY is supposed to be really important. of course, there's also people for whom the rules just don't apply. >>33590310Pffft, whaddya mean, 'lazy writing'?What are you implying, anon?>>33590322Or, yanno, he coulda just started throwing more stuff instead of changing tactics midway through.
As Komoe-chan is explaining that shooting fire is a waste of energy, and pointing out the ways that a beam of thermal energy is superior- range, ability to melt stuff, hotness, coolness, and so on and so forth- you notice two things.First, Mato-chan is little and cute again.Second, you can feel something hot.It's not just 'hot', though.It's far away.And hotter than the hottest thing you've ever felt before.Panic and pure, instinctive, primal fear grip you as the heat increases.Nee-chan took you to visit a volcano, once.The magma chambers, the tour guide had said, can reach temperatures in excess of two-thousand degrees.You could sense it from the mountainside.It felt natural, almost calming.Like some sort of ancient beast, rolling over in its slumber.But this... this is even hotter.And it's not natural.It is quite possibly the least natural thing you've ever felt.It must be showing on your face, because Komoe-chan looks worried.“Takamichi-san? Are you alright?”Well? Are you?>NO, I'M PANICKING.>Yeah, it's nothing, I'm fine.>I feel a great disturbance in the force...>There's a HUGE fire or something. [Point in the relevant direction]>Faint.>Other (Write-in)
>>33590411Accel not doing horrible things to Touma wasn't a case of personal reality insufficiency. His PR was already at a place that would have allowed him to do damn near anything, but he just didn't use it.Think of PR like a gun. Accel's was a pretty bullshit nuke launcher thing. Instead of pulling the trigger, he tried to use it like a club and beat Touma to death. It was fully capable of shooting nukes, he just chose not to because [reasons].
>>33590481>NO, I'M PANICKING.>There's a HUGE fire or something. [Point in the relevant direction]
>>33590481>There's a HUGE fire or something. [Point in the relevant direction]>IT'S HOTTER THAN A VOLCANO!!!
>>33590411>What are you implying, anon?I can tell you for a fact that I am absolutely not implying that Raildex is in fact made up off the cuff as it is being written due to being little more than a cash-cow to keep the author in dosh while he writes things that he actually gives a shit about. No sir, I would never even dream of implying something like that.Still wouldn't make it any less fun if that were the case. Which it totally isn't.

>>33590481>There's a HUGE fire or something. [Point in the relevant direction]and seconding >>33590595
>>33590490 Anon, I feel obliged to not point out the silly things about canon, because here I am running a quest based on it! It's much easier to accept that Accelerator's crazy in a 'I want to toy with my prey' kind of way than it is to just assume that he was too pants-on-head retarded to realize there was a problem The way choose to see it is that Personal Reality is just as much a power limiter as it is a power source.I.E., in order to be more powerful, you've gotta remove inhibitions and become batshit insane!Or learn how to rationalize things differently. But that's WAY LESS FUN than being crazy.
>>33590595Isn't Meltdown a level 5 pyro, or am I misunderstanding how her power works?
>>33590652She's a highly specialized variation of electromaster. She shoots electrons.
>>33590595Fire caused by other pyromani- err, other pyrokineticists- feels 'natural' to you.You wouldn't be panicking (nearly as much) if it were that, because there's probably plenty of people in the big AC who can do that.It's because it feels like somebody's torn open the gates of hell that you're panicking.>>33590652No, silly, she shoots electrons!She's basically like Misaka, except less good!Yaaaaaaay.
>>33590652Nope. She's basically Misaka if all of her points in utility got put into electric death-rays instead.
>>33590702>torn open the gatesWell why didn't you say so in the first place?I bet on Lucifer.
>>33590663>>33590702>>33590720Wow, her power seems worse and worse the more I learn about it.

>>33590652>>33590663>>33590702>>33590720>>33590749It's some weird interpretation of wave-particle duality. Her PR forces the electrons she fires to act in a way disregarding both form's properties and just break apart the target.It's total bullshit by real world physics, but it's Personal Reality so I guess it's okay. It's actually really good, since if it works as it apparently does it destroys things on a sub-atomic level, so any physical defense is worthless. Problem is she isn't immune to it, so she's really limited in terms of how much she can fire at once.
>>33590851It can be deflected by electromagnetic shielding. It's a shit power.
>>33590843Have you thought about quest music? Not necessarily for every post, but just something to listen to while reading or waiting.
>>33590895Is that common? It sounds like saying our burny power can be blocked by people who have specifically prepared against it.
>>33590895Yeah, she tends to job to other character. Kakine kicked her ass as well, though his power is to say "fuck you" to any law of physics he damn well pleases, so that's a fight not alot of people are going to win.I don't think she's actually won a fight, aside from against mooks. Kind of sad.She's alot of fun though.>“Gya ha ha!! Oh, now where to start burning her? Maybe I should roast that little face of hers.

Or can you still get off to fucking a hole like that!?”>(Dammit…)>“I’ll count to three. If you don’t come out, I’ll burn Takitsubo’s ***** as punishment. Of course, if you’d rather just abandon her, then you can just sit there masturbating to the stench of her virginity being burned away.”>Mugino did not give a nice slow count as was usual.>Instead…>“Three-two-one-go!!”>“Fuck!!” I love her even if her power is shit.

>>33591050Well, yes. But Mugino is extra special crazy.You know how characters get redeemed sometimes? That sort of happened to Mugino. So her logic is that she can murder as many people as she wants, because Hamazura will forgive her and fix her no matter what she does.She's awesome. She doesn't seem to understand how redemption works, but there you go.
>>33591050It's a prerequisite.
>>33591110That doesn't really sound like redemption to me, at least Accelerator cleaned up his act a little and tried to earn his new lease on life. That strikes me as kinda lazy writing, honestly.
You can practically feel the strength leaving your body as you raise your arm and point.“... Hot. T-that way. Hotter than anything I've felt before.”Komoe-chan frowns. Probably because she knows exactly how your ability to sense heat works, and is perfectly capable of extrapolating the fact that there's some crazy shit going down.She pulls out a cellphone and immediately calls someone.Probably Anti-Skill.Please let her be calling Anti-Skill.Everything blurs a little as she begins frantically talking into the phone.The fire just keeps getting hotter.And bigger.…Anyone who could make a fire like that... would have to be a monster.No human being could have a reason to make a fire that hot, that large, and for this long.There's a strange sort of pressure building in your head. Like you're feeling something you shouldn't be able to feel.Your vision blurs further.What the hell is going on?There are arms holding onto you, now.Oh, hi, Mato-chan.What does she look so worried about, anyways?Can't she see that it's time to go to sleep?>Faint>Faint>PASS THE **** OUT>GO OFF THE RAILS?

Bhh…You reconciled with him…You decided to live a proper life and walk in the same world as him!! Then! Then…!!”>“Sigh…So that’s it.” Mugino scratched at her head in annoyance. “As long as I have Hamazura, this is fine.”>“…What?”>“I’ll get into trouble and into fights. There will even be deadly fights. But it will all work out in the end. No matter how many people I kill and how much I destroy, everything will be resolved in the end somehow and we can all be happy. All my past experiences have shown that to be true.”>The atmosphere and overall mood suddenly grew colder.>Some kind of strange rule that did not exist anywhere on the earth covered that area.>“That’s how it was during the fight between Item and School.

No matter what happens, he will forgive me in the end.”>Kinuhata quietly sighed from her position outside Mugino’s field of vision.>They had no idea who that attacker worked for, but he had misread the situation on a fundamental level.>Just because a happy ending had been reached did not mean all the death and violence had forever ended.>Depending on how the happy ending had been accepted, it could be dyed in grotesque and psychedelic colors.>And…>One must not think of Mugino Shizuri’s sensibility as being of the same type as a normal person’s.>A monster was a monster.>Even if reconciliation had been achieved, it did not mean her basic nature had been changed to something clean and refreshing. >PASS THE **** OUTThis one sounds entertaining.

… Mato-chan lookes worried.About you.In your stupor, you realize you can hear far more than you should be able to.You can hear the Anti-Skill officer on the other end of the line in Komoe-chan's phone.He's saying that you're wrong, that there is no fire, that a fire that big would create a windstorm as the fire sucked in oxygen to fuel itself.Under normal circumstances, he'd be absolutely correct.Under these circumstances, he couldn't be any more wrong.Your eyes dip closed as darkness descends over your world.Then you force them back open.What the hell do you think you're doing, anyways?You can't pass out on your first day!Whatever it is that's making that much heat, it can't be good.And you might well be the only person 'qualified' to handle it.“Mato-chan.”Akari-”You grab onto her shoulder and pull yourself into a standing position.“Something's wrong. We have to stop it, whatever it is. It's dangerous. Extremely dangerous.”“How dangerous? Level 4 dangerous?” She pauses. “Level... Level 5 dangerous?”“Level this-isn't-pyrokinesis dangerous.”“Shit.”You nod. “I know. Let's go.”Komoe-chan didn't try to stop you.She could probably see it.The fire in your EYES.

>>33592187I hope this means we fireball-jump all the way there like pro tf2 Soldier rollout.
>>33592187Whatever we were trying to do, I think that did it.
>>33592051Ah, my successor. I suppose it's time for me to rest. I leave everything in your hands.Godspeed.
>>33592363This gif is going to get a lot of use I suspect.
>>33592363I think Akari looks better without the buns
>>33592499Blasphemer!I think the same.
>>33592499Akari looks good in all hairstyles and outfits. She's just that cute.I hope we get to change outfits and aren't stuck wearing the same thing every day. Cosmetic votes are the best.
>>33592591I wonder if she could walk around with her hair on fire. It would look awesome
You know, I'm surprised Akari's power wasn't invisibility.
You reach the source of the 'fire' before you even know it.…If you had some shred of doubt about your statement that this wasn't normal before, it's gone now.Because that...You don't know what that thing even is.But it's clearly pissed off.Some spiky-haired guy is trying to... fight it?Yeah, he's fighting that thing hand-to-hand.…What a goddamn genius.“Mato-chan.”“Akari?”You punch her in the arm for dropping the honorific. There's no need to get so personal. It's not like you're gonna die.“I don't think Anti-Skill can handle that thing.”She knows where you going with this.You can tell because she looks like she wants to punch you in the face- in order to keep you from doing something stupid, that is.“Keep them away. I'll...”She nods.“You'll think of something. I know the drill.”Yeah.You'll think of something.You run towards the building- you'd call it a student housing complex, if you had to guess.That guy and that scary fire-demon-thing are a couple floors up.
>>33592653OP recognized how awesome Akarin was and gave her a power that properly showcases her magnificence.
He seems like he's holding it off somewhat well on his own, but you're not going to stand idly by with an excuse like 'Oh, he looked like he could handle it'.What do you do?>FIREBALL ROCKET JUMP!

>these rollsWow. Akari used all her luck getting here.
>>33592740Consume the fire, we only want to stop the burning.
>>33592740>>33592752You guys are missing the second piece of the puzzle... >consume and redirect
Rolled 3>>33592723>>FIREBALL ROCKET JUMP! DYNAMIC ENTRY AND ALL THAT! (roll 1d20)
>>33592740Sure. Why not.Either that or try to do the flame extinguish thing we can do.
Rolled 86>>33592781Eh, best to burn the bad rolls here, we can't kill this thing directly anyways. Gotta be clever about it.
>>33592723sorry misdirected here>>33592788>Consume
>>33592800Why did I accidentally roll again? Is it because i'm not very smart? Probably.
>>33592723>CONSUMEI don't know what this means. Standing inside it? We ARE immune to fire.
Rolled 19>>33592723>Run up the stairs, you'll come up behind the monster and be able to commence the whomping (1d100)Don't try and directly burninate the thing made out of fire. Instead try to disperse it, take the fire and heat and move it somewhere safe. Tear chunks of fire off of it and extinguish it.Also, make sure the guy we saw doesn't roast alive.
>>33592740>Consume and make the hell fire our own
>>33592818Suck up all the flames and send them elsewhere, I think
>>33592818How far do you think that goes? Up to our own max output?I mean I doubt we could stand the corona of the sun or something.
>>33592828These rolls are getting comical.OP, never ever have people roll before an action is decided on.

>>33592881I think the general answer is "We fail really bad."Eh, Touma won this fight in canon, not a big deal.
Rolled 65>>33592881then I gues:>>Run up the stairs, you'll come up behind the monster and be able to commence the whomping (1d100)
>>33592881Then we shall do so... WITH CATLIKE TREAD!
>>33592881Way to break my heart.
Rolled 98>>33592914>Run up the stairs, you'll come up behind the monster and be able to commence the whomping (1d100)Sure.
>>33592941That's the third roll for that option. Does that count? Has Akari's luck finally been broken?
>>33592881That's the problem with having two separate dice systems. You can't just take the first three rolls. I would unify the dice system to a 1d100. I would also ask for rolls second unless all the decisions require a roll, in which case you take the first 3 regardless of which decision wins.
>>33592973Technically it would be our second roll for consume, just with the clarification that this is for the getting close part.
>>33592881Okay, let's just repoll hereCounting those votes looks like waaay to much work.>SNEAK up on Mr. SCARY FIRE DEMON THING and EAT HIS BITCH ASS>Shoot HEAT RAYS at SCARY FIRE MAN>Blow yourself up, enter dynamically!

What would success even do here? It doesn't sound healthy to fail or succeed.
>>33593112Drain Innocentius for a moment?The runes will just recreate it, but it might give us or Touma an opening or something.
Welp, that looks an awful lot like consensus to me.TOSS ME A COUPLE OF HUNDRED-SIDED DICE, IF YOU'D PLEASE

>>33593233That is probably better
/tg/ never fails to amaze me with custom choices. Its always the most stupid shit, and usually the most entertaining.
>>33593404On the contrary, I think this move was quite clever on anon's part. No argument on the entertaining part though.
>>33593404I love you too.
No.No fireballs, no heat rays, none of that.You have an idea.You run up the stairs, even as they begin to warp and melt in the intense heat.You can hear voices- two of them, both male- in addition to the freaky noises the fire monster is producing.And, as you round the corner and come up behind the creature, the spiky-haired guy's eyes widen in surprise.He looks like he's about to ask what you're doing here.Which is odd, given he's fist-fighting a scary fire demon.You'd think he'd be a little more... unfazed by this kinda thing.Regardless, Mr. Fire-demon-guy isn't particularly perceptive, and the way these bits of paper (which, bizarrely enough, haven't been reduced to cinders yet) are fluttering about I mean, come on, he only taped them on one side, those things would be flapping all over the goddamn place, let's be honest here , they're making enough noise that your footsteps are basically nothing.As you draw nearer, you can feel it.Pulsing.Throbbing.Sweltering.If you were to walk up to the sun, it would probably feel a helluva lot like this.The fact that you're aware of the temperature is almost shocking.Such power...It's in the wrong hands, now.But your hands...Your hands might fit this just right.You're close enough to touch it, now.Spiky-hair guy is gaping at you.
But... can you really handle this?Your body seems to know how to react to heat on instinct alone.To recognize it.To fear and respect it.Perhaps... perhaps this was foolish of you.Maybe you should just back away and... and do something else.What do you do, Takamichi Akari?>Change your mind, do something else. (What?)>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.
>>33593537Say goodbye to our Judgement armband.Reminder that we're wearing a cool as hell suit and mirrored shades.
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.
>>33593589I think the rest of our clothes are fucked as well.I don't think it was meant to deal with this guy's heat.
>>33593583>>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it. No turning back!
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.Our heart is righteous and our mind a blazing star!
>>33593583>Change your mind, do something else. (Tear the flapping papers apart!)Too meta? They're not burning and they should be burning. That's enough of a clue?
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.Balls deep.
>>33593583>>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it. Esper pls. As if we wouldn't do it.
>>33593640Meta, but not meta enough. The whole building is covered in the papers, burning the ones here won't help.
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.In it to win it!
This is adorable. Roll high enough to get a "WHAT THE FUCK?!" prompt and go through with it anyway.I expected no less of you /tg/.
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.NO TURNING BACK NOW
>>33593675/tg/ is best girl.
>>33593675Betting on a nat 100 is a terrible idea.But fuck it, let's do it anyway!
>>33593675I am actually kinda dissapointed we didn't get to go through with it with our roll. If for some reason consuming is too much, at least the general idea of dispersing it should go through.
>>33593583I didn't think we were going to jam our hands into it. I thought we were going to, like, suck all the heat out of it or something.But this works too I guess. Eat the demon!
>>33593583>Plunge your hands into its back and seize this power from whoever might abuse it.We've come this far, haven't we?!
>If you run into canon characters, though, it'll be minor stuff, like meeting Accelerator at the store and chastising him for drinking so much coffee/not doing his homework.>Or running into Stiyl and having another character wonder aloud if the two of you are related or something.>Or running into Kongou and realizing that your life is but an empty shell, devoid of best girl.Thanks for keeping your word OP.
>>33593589>>33593620 I'll figure out whether or not your clothes survive after, between sessions.

>>33593697I'm not sure what consuming would really mean in this case.Granted Innocentius is so far outside our power range it's not even funny, but eh, this Quest is for doing fun crazy stuff so who cares.

>>33593739Shush. We're having fun.
>>33593739We explicitly went of the rails here and had several rolls to get to this point.
>>33593739I didn't even give the option, anon.The players wanted justiceI intended Komoe to be as deep as we went.>>33593603>>33593625>>33593639>>33593642>>33593650>>33593657>>33593674>>33593683>>33593723>>33593758I'm proud of you, /tg/Hesitation in combat is death but you didn't lose your way
>>33593873I did only what the soundtrack and the lulz demanded of me.
>>33593873>I intended Komoe to be as deep as we went.I wouldn't mind meeting her again at all. She's cool and helpful to us and would be fun to get to know.As far as I know she isn't heavily involved in any canon plot stuff.
>>33593873Lets eat some demons!
>>33593970I intended her to be a random encounter-type thing that you could re-use.i.e., you could eventually get all of her lectures.You still can, naturally.All I'm saying is pic related.
>>33594012I like Komoe. Every series should have a wise everloli
You almost hesitate.Almost.The heat as you bury your hands in the monster's back is intense.You're actually sweating.Your shades are melting.In fact, all of your clothes are melting.But you can feel it inside of you, thrumming deep in your chest.You take hold of... something, and you pull.You can feel your mind reeling as it takes in this previously-incomprehensible new stimulus.Fire that burns without air.Heat hotter than any flame has any right to be.An unrelenting, raging torrent of fire whips up a whirlwind in the very center of your being, in your very soul.Your mind was so... so narrow, before.So bound by rules and regulations like the 'laws of physics' and 'the way things work' and 'logic'.But those don't apply here.The power to BURN IT ALL AWAY is now yours.Let none be fooled, there is no longer any flame greater than yours!The last thing you do before you lose consciousness is witness spiky-hair guy punching the teeth outta some tall redheaded guy with a cigarette in his mouth.Good on you, spiky-hair man.That'll teach him to give himself lung cancer in a smoking-free area!...When did it get so not-hot, anyways?...Oh, hi, Mato.Why's she look so freaked out, anyways, it's not like you did something rash or any-ZZZZZZZ
>>33594201So Touma has two wounded lolis to deal with now?Jesus christ.
>>33594201So I guess we went up a level...?
>>33594224Nah Mato is gonns take care of Akari.
>>33594238Hopefully yes, that was certainly awesome enough in my book!
Sleep well, AkariYou lucky bugger you.Meanwhile, I've gotta figure out what to do now.Anyways, I think we'll end this here.We've been going for, what, eight hours now?pretty good run, I think.
>>33594224>woundedOnly the rockin' shades got hurt. They'll get a hero's burial, for their sacrifice was great.
>>33594280Thanks for running.
>>33594280This is what happens when you only give a GO OFF THE RAILS option.
>>33594280It was fun! I'm gonna vote to try to seek out Komoe if we ever want summer schooling.And we definitely want summer schooling. Gotta reach level 5 somehow.
>>33594280I hope you think of something cool for Akari to do. Sounds like, at the very least, she just figured out how to do bullshit hot fires that give physics a big one-finger salute.I want to show off our new bullshit hot fires to everloli sensei.Next thread when?
>>33594280You don't need to overdo it, this definitly qualifies for getting some nice bonus, but there is no need for anything drastic, unless there is a in-setting precedent you would have to follow.Anyway, thanks for running!
>>33594300Our suit got burned away to nothing too. Oh my, Mato's now seen us naked.
We need to take lessons from Fiamma-Senpai next.
>>33594353I want to rub this in Stiyl's face. WE STOLE YOUR FIRE BITCH!But we're probably not going to see him again and that might be for the best.
>>33594318That wasn't the only choice. It was the result of a widely-supported write-in.
>>33594410Hanging with Stiyl might be good inspiration for thinking of cool shit to do. He might not be an esper, but he is a master pyromancer. Gotta be some good inspiration for things to do.
>>33594238I... I think so.I'll have to figure out what's goin' on first.>>33594318The 'plan' was for you guys to get KO'd and switch POV to Mato so you could freak out about your waifu suddenly passing out.>>33594224I don't think so.Mato's a good girl.>>33594363Naked?>Covered in slag, more likely>>33594353If I can't, I'm sure you guys will.See: >OFF THE RAILS and >CONSUME>>33594361I dunno, I went for the 'your mind was just blown' angle, so I think a significant power boost/change is necessaryNow I just gotta figure it out.>>33594410Maybe next time you'll get the sand people...
>>33594280At least you rolled with it, which is pretty cool in my book. Any idea when you'll run next?
>>33594435Which only happened because the only other options were 'pass out'.>>33594497>The 'plan' was for you guys to get KO'd and switch POV to Mato so you could freak out about your waifu suddenly passing out.Then you should have just made us pass out, not given us the option.
>>33594497>Akari steals fire from 'the gods' metaphorically speaking>Akari is Prometheus now
>>33594497I mean, technically we just absorbed a being that can shrug off attacks that make nukes look like firecrackers. So that seems like a Level 5 thing.I feel like that's a little intense, but you know, YOLO I guess.
>>33594521>Then you should have just made us pass out, not given us the option.I don't think he's complaining about this, Anon. He's just surprised that we both chose to do this and rolled well enough to pull it off.
>>33594502I'll try for friday, I think.I think Bored-sempai's gonna run thursday, and I need time to figure stuff out>>33594521Where's the fun in that?>>33594548Maybe.I might even have to do *GASP* research!
>>33594521This was way cooler though, I for one really like the way this played out.
>>33594521Why ? We just discovered a Bonus Stage.Its not like its completly uunreasonable to try and stay awake.Its really only bad if it becomes a habit, the important thing is that thgis thing nor its outcome drastically change the quest, impact, yes, but the quest shouldn't start revolving around doing crazy stunts involving cameos,
>>33594473We could learn his heat illusion stuff, that's fun.
>>33594548I don't think this just gave us Innocentius-tier durability. It probably just let us make flames that burn like crazy.
>>33594589 If the crazy canon stuff involves insane fire or heat, we should be able to sense it and possibly intervene. But most things don't? This was a special case.
>>33594624Yeah, the next one isn't till August 21>>33594610You don't exist because of runes, so, no, you can't sustain yourself even after being killedthat'd be ridiculous
>>33594574I just hope that we don't end up in the canon stuff too much. I mean, running up to touch the fire demon and passing out is one thing, but please don't suddenly just replace the main cast of Raildex with Akari and friends. Don't have them be the ones to solve level upper or stop lv6 Shift or anything like that, ya feel me?
>>33594574It might be a good idea to have her lose a lot of control because of this. She gained a huge jump in ability with none of the training needed to use it safely.
>>33594665That'd be boring and dumb, anon.Don't misunderestimate my stragegery, okay?
>>33594624Well, Accel made a huge ball of plasma, but the whole thing was pretty much over at that point so I doubt we'd get there in time before it was done.And Stiyl makes Innocentius in AC a few more times, so I guess there's that.Really we only need to get involved if we feel like it.
>>33594662>We'll die if we're killedBut then how will we get Kakine-kun to notice us?
>>33594686Good man.Now just get crackin' on powerups from fisting Innocentius and we're all set!
>>33594683Losing control with firepowers is pretty angsty territory, which might not be appropriate for the quest.Since she "stole the fire" so to speak, maybe she gained control over "metaphysical" flames maybe she can make Mato 'burn' for her now like "fire of inspiration" kind of stuff. Admittely, I don't know if that fits into the setting.
>>33594759It'd fit more if we were a Magician trying to craft a spell about that.As it is, we're an Esper, so our powers basically function however we intuitively feel they should.
>>33594759It doesn't fit.
Is there a chance this could taint her with magicks somehow? I know Espers can't use that shit, but maybe she could be affected by it enough for Mami-sempai to notice with her magical girl powers?
>>33594745>wanting a male to notice youFoolish anon! There's only one thing I'll ever truly railroad you on!And that's /u/-boating Though I can't see you NTR-ing MatoI didn't really intend her to be your waifu that fast.Ya just picked all the lewd options.
>>33594497I now imagine the Sororitas cosplayer seeing Mato run come out of the building with a mostly naked, sleeping Akari.Lets hope that armor isn't 'too' authentic.
>>33594683That's not true at all. She gained a boost in ability because she gained a boost in understanding.She can make the flames hotter and bigger now (assuming that's what the boost is) because she can control it better.More power with esper abilities directly translates to finer control.
>>33594814>I didn't really intend her to be your waifu that fast.Seriously? How was that supposed to play out?And isn't Akari still oblivious? It's funnier that way.
>>33594814Even if we don't husbando Kakine, he's still a fun character to see. He's an /fa/ nutcase dbag with pretty angel wings. What's not to love?
>>33594837With enough control we could keep fire from burning other people. Which would be a good trick to have.
>>33594869He's not used nearly enough, I agree.I mean he's an asshole, but he's an asshole who's fun to watch. Plus Dark Matter is one of the funner powers in the setting.
>>33594944Dark matter is probably my favorite power in the setting.
>>33594826It's just powered armor.Nothing too special.Not even combat spec! the chainswords are real, though
>>33594497>If I can't, I'm sure you guys will.Well, Steve was talking about the sun. What if we can now, with a few minutes of concentration, cause a miniature sun to pop into existence?
>>33595197TIME TO MAKE A NEW SUN
>>33595240Or just insanely more hot flames in general. That's cool too.
>>33595197It would be kind of lame if we hit level 5 just from this.
>>33595197Personally, I will consider our power development complete when we can do pic related.
>>33595285Yeah.Even Mato would laugh at you if you tried to make a sun.She wouldn't even be sorry about it after.>>33595299I feel the same way, comrade
>>33595299I kind of agree. I feel that should bbe something of a long-going side plot.I think giving her fire a special quality, or expanding its ulitiy or something would be better than a straight power-up.
>>33595323No need to go overboard with it really.Most of Innocentius's power comes from it's insane regen. If we just absorbed the amount of power it had in a single instant, it's not that much.
>>33595299>>33595323We were right on the cusp of lv4 from thread 1, though, so jumping up to med-high 4 wouldn't be that weird.And don't underestimate level 4s. They're already crazy powerful. A level 4 telekinetic can put every particle of his body into stasis and essentially become indestructible. Saiai has short range reactive Nitrogen-specific aerokinesis and she can tank shots from tanks and then rip the tanks in half. Kuroko really is bullshit when you think about what she's doing. Umidori is nuts.
>>33595383If I remember right we were on the cusp of lvl 5, hence the challenge of reaching lvl 5 for ice cream.
>>33595370I think you're misinterpreting what happened.Akari didn't actually 'absorb Innocentius' or his power or anything like that. She touched it, had an epiphany about the nature of fire, and then passed out. The boost in her power came from shaking up her personal reality, not from glomming magic or something. It's not like she even could have eaten it; magic and esper powers are incompatible. She'd have turned into red goo.
>>33595416We're level 3 right on the edge of hitting level 4 with potential to eventually possibly become level 5 maybe.
>>33595370>>33595364Again, I'm thinking less power-up and more shift in personal reality.Like, a 'Holy shit I can do this' type of thing.>>33595383Level 4s are crazy, yeah.I was told the scale was exponential, and I've taken that to heart.>>33595416Cusp of lvl 4, your motivation is ice cream, the researchers are entirely aware that you're capable of LVL FIVE stuffs.>>33595418Yeah, what this guy says!
>>33595418She didn't learn about fire. She learned about bullshit magic fire that burns way hotter than it should without air. There's an important difference there.
>>33595383Eh, Umidori is nuts through AC tech though.Her normal power let's her create two nitrogen spears that can rip through tanks like butter and cut apart buildings. That's pretty good but not really insane.Then she gets thousands of cyborgs hands attached to her, because giving the crazy girl the ability to fire thousands of building-destroying attacks is a GREAT idea.Then she gets wrecked by a Fiveover Railgun which is hilarious.
>>33595459>Yeah, what this guy says!I think you need to say it at the start of next thread, because some people here seem to think that she literally absorbed Innocentius or something.
>>33595484It's the fusion of her power and the tech. The extra hands wouldn't do jack shit if her personal reality didn't dictate that anything she considers a hand can shoot spears.
>>33595479Yes.She learned how to be crazy, basically.NO RULES!>>33595503More you realized that nothing makes sense and absorbed him metaphorically.
>>33595459Well, it's not exponential perse. Level 0-4 is fairly straightforward, though with a pretty big leap between 3 and 4.It's just that to be a level 6 you need to be able to juggle universes, so level 5 can range from barely above level 4 to literally any amount of power at all.It's why the gap between Kakine and Accelerator, and everyone else is so large.
>>33595479Point still stands that the powerup came from within her and was only inspired by outside happenings, not some kind of taking outside power into her.
>>33595578>>33595479>burns way hotter than it should without airYou know what that sounds like to me? Being able to use the spontaneous ignition power on non-flammable things.
>>33595484By the way, how'd she manage to get that many hands?As far as I can tell, that's not how hands work.There just wouldn't be room for that many hands!>>33595591>A level 1 can do stuff>a level 2 can actually use their ability to accomplish things>a level 3 can whup asses>a level 4 wrecks bums>level 5 is what they call people who are too badass to be lvl 4 anymore>level 6 is literally GOD>>33595627You guys like spontaneous ignition far more than I ever anticipated.
>>33595627We need to meet Richard Brave.>The ability to change the flammability of anything>The ability to burn things like smoke, water, and OTHER FIRE, because fuck you physics, it's magic
>>33595667They're very tiny hands. When she needs all of them they fold on top of eachother and shit. All that matters is that she perceives them as her own hands, they don't have to actually be able to function as hands.And hell, if she can mind fuck herself into thinking a fucking cliff is part of her body, I won't doubt her.
>>33595667>You guys like spontaneous ignition far more than I ever anticipated.I just like things that activate at a designated coordinate rather than traveling from caster to target. It's a personal thing.
>>33595798Time for mage questit'll revolve around tricking espers into completing spells inadvertently and killing themselves.It'll be dumb and boring!
>>33595667Because spontaneous ignition is Akari's best power. Fireballs and flamethrowers are flashy and cool, but it's such a drag that someone can just Gears of War it and dive behind a chest-high wall. Someone hiding behind a wall? Spontaneously ignite their shit and they can't do nuthin' about it.
>>33595873I think Akari would benefit from abilities that don't horribly maim or kill people, which is, admittely, kinda hard to do with fire.
>>33595873b-but it requires line of sightspontaneous ignition is literally your only power that wouldn't be able to affect them in that situationFireball would be able to explode beside or behind, and heat rays might be able to penetrate.>>33595905Justice is hard.
>>33595933>JusticeOh god, that made me flashback to DA. I just realized they drowned the PYROkinetic.I don't know why but it made me chuckle.
>>33595905Isn't that what heat rays are? She can heat people up enough to make them uncomfortable.
>>33595933I was under the impression that we just needed to be able to sense the person, and heat-sense accomplishes that.
>>33596034Your senses aren't that honed yet.In fact, getting so close to something so hot might have messed with them a bit...
>>33595933So, Innocentius is black. It's Akari's inspiration for supah hot flames.Does this mean that her flames are going to be edgy and black as my soul now? Because that would be hilarious and awesome.I can picture the other characters teasing her about it being silly and her being all "Stop it! They're better like this really I'm not just being chuu2!!!"
>>33596075>Edgy black flames... maybeOr maybe pink flames
>>33596106>... maybeI really want to see Steve try to science babble explain it."It appears that your flames have become so hot that they're actually destroying the photons in the area! Astounding!"
>>33596106>pink fire that spits out heartsI want this now.
>>33596106I hate to say this, but edgy black flames would match her edgy black-dressing girlfriend's fashion sense.I'd still rather have red flames to match her hair. Or pinku.
>>33596310>Blood red flames
>>33596310>Wanting your psychic fire to match your girlfriend's bikini
>>33596361What kind of horrible waifu wouldn't try to match their psychic fire to their girlfriend's trenchcoat thing?
>>33596420We could match in a different way by going for a complementary color!
>>33596479Well, she's also got a blue thing going on. Blue fire is supposed to be hot.Though I'd rather go for white so that Akari would have white+red while Mato would have black+blue for beautiful contrast.
>>33596310Black goes with red really well. Looks better with it than just having more red does most of the time. At least in my opinion.
>>33596509I like it.I was kinda hoping you guys would bomb the 'figure out Miku and Mato are sisters' roll.'Cause then I coulda made something up.
>>33596552>I like it.The blue or the white? Because white would be better.
>>33596552Could you give us the option to autofail rolls if we want to instead of rolling? I definitely would have voted to fail that roll.
>>33596600Do a write-in to just ignore the feeling that she looks familiar.
>>33596576white/red and black/blueIt sounds cute>>33596600No, I don't think making Akari suffer would be a good idea.Also, that roll was almost impossible to fail.
>>33596627Since you're probably going to be burning through fucking tons of characters to import, may I suggest looking at Himegoto?
>>33596764>HimegotoThat fuckin' show... So many trap pantyshots, and they all have MASSIVE balls.
