Hey guys, sorry for being late. Its such ana amazingly quiet morning (everyone is out, or traveling) that I lost track of time
>>33959013aaand the baby woke up with an "im hungry"brb preparing milk
>>33959032They do tend to have the ability to make their desires clear, don't they?
>>33959066Verily.Well, milk has been servedSo where were we...? btw since there was a rogue, a cleric and a fighter, i ended up making lyann as a fire based sorceress. Because you should burn your troubles into ceasing to be.That reminds me... I net a virtual reality mmorpg made by novas would be awesome.Ah right, had just been on the ohone with Okaba and then Quantum Labs, there was thing about the healt center calling in the future... yeah that should be the future, I got ahead of myself there... ah, checking the applicants***You sit across from Aritsu and start reading the dossiers. Most of them are freshly graduated students, with a few being veterans of the telecommunication business.It doesn't look like you have any novas.Aritsu: "Sir, do you have any criteria to choose from? men, women, freshly graduated students, experienced folks... after all, there has never been a business that needed this much cover. It's mostly new ground."***your cue
>>33959200"I think we should have a few veterans and a bunch of bright eyed newbies. As for men or women, doesn't matter to me."Also, would be illegal to chose based on gender
>>33959285Unless you're Hooters
>>33959285eh, lets be honest, PC and real money dont go together.>>33959307or the Red Baron (was the 1st coffee with legs shop over here in Chile. Im sure I've mentioned Im chilean?)http://youtu.be/jHjih8qr0pY**Aritsu: "Ah... that will make it harder, then..."***I was going to suggest you roll Biz, Bureaucracy or a Intelligence check, but lets be honest, Biz is our best skill, really.So roll 12d10
Rolled 7, 5, 6, 3, 10, 7, 7, 4, 2, 10, 1, 9 = 71>>33959366
Rolled 7, 1, 6, 2, 8, 9, 6, 5, 9, 9, 3, 2 = 67>>33959366rolling>>33959307They have actually been sued over that.
>>33959495>They have actually been sued over that.Well... I guess that if a guy wants to work dressed like that, he can do it? (at home please)>>339593998 successes, and 2 explodey dice.You are working hard with Aritsu when the phone rings again. She hands you the call, since it is Okaba once more.Okaba: "Ned? the T2M agent should be there already. Want me to go over there and wait for him with you?"*** No, it can be anything. Maybe he's just a bit late, or already watching from hiding Sure, we can have a coffee together.
>>33959558> Sure, we can have a coffee together.>Well... I guess that if a guy wants to work dressed like that, he can do it? (at home please)Didn't say they won. Hooters just flatly admitted they were selling female sex appeal, and it worked as a legal defense.
Rolled 9, 9, 8, 4, 4, 2, 9, 3 = 48>>33959586Ah, that reminds me of a case where a model sued a company when she was told her looks were not what the agency was looking for.She sued a modeling agency saying she was discriminated because of her looks.The agency said "if she didint had above average looks, she would never have been able to become a model in the first place. This is the most shameless..." And sure, a model trying to force an agency to handle her regardless of however she looked like... ***You invite Okaba to come up, and barely have a few minutes passed by, when a black and green mass of muscle breaks your windows on its way in. The crystal doesn't explode, bur rather, it is melted and bent inwards, as if by huge heat."it" uncurls into the vague shape of a woman, huge and morbidly obesse. Her eyes are sunk deep under layers of fat, shining from deep under a fold of fat.It looks as if her flesh was badly pasted on a skeleton a few sizes too small.Aritsu: "Security, please!" -she immediately presses the emergency button.The intruder makes a throwing gesture, and a mass of fat and skin flies off as if she was made of some sort of liquid, a large, round drop hitting your assistant square on the head, and throwing her backwards to glue her to the bookcase.Woman: "That's quite enough, thankyou."She tries to hit you with a similar proyectile.Roll Martial arts to dodge. 9d10
Rolled 2, 2, 7, 9, 8, 4, 5, 6, 2 = 45>>33959798
Rolled 9, 5, 7, 5, 4, 7, 8, 6 = 51>>33959798That reminds me we need to update Ned's sheet with +2 dexterity and 1 specialty on Martial Arts (Qi Meng)
>>33959867This is my current version of his sheet.
>>33959856She glues your hand to the wall, throwing you back several feet.(Might or athletics Difficulty +2 to break free. Need 3 successes, which would be hard since Ned has strenght 3... ah but with an updated sheet he would have athletics 8 so it may not be as hard.So, roll8d10
Rolled 5, 6, 2, 5, 1, 3, 1, 5 = 28>>33959928rolling. Ned should invest in Mega dex, since Dex is ST's godstat.
>>33959901Latest Sheet. Updated it just now
>>33959963Well, he's still glued to the wall.The noise as the woman walks is a disgusting mix of glugs and splurts. She leaves small footprints like burns on your rug, in the middle of a wide swat of fat.Woman: "You don't seem like such a big shot, really."***With Aritsu suffocating and frantically trying to pull free from the crap the intruder threw to her, you are now quite sure your beautiful, super efficient secretary is not secretly a martial arts champion or anything else of the sort.Want to roll initiative and try to throw a heavy looking flowerpot at the intruder, grab your hat rack and try to use it as a polearm to keep her at bay, or buy time by talking before security and/or okaba get there?
Rolled 3, 6, 6, 5, 4, 4, 9, 10 = 47>>33959977Uh, got a few issues:Mega wits should be at 4, the Mega socials should be at three athletics should be at 3,Qi Meng should have a second specialty and leading to a Martial arts pool of 12, not 9
Rolled 8, 9, 10, 6, 10, 1, 10, 9, 9, 7, 2, 7, 6 = 94>>33960051guess we'll try diplomacy to stall her. Last 3 are mega dice, and activation our two enhancements for Six automatic successes.
Rolled 1, 7, 4 = 12>>3396015217 successes, rolling exploding dice. Ned's a godamn monster
>>33960077Oh alright, hold on Ill fix it
>>33960152>>3396017418 successes? Doesn't willpower cap at 10 in this system?
>>33960250Yup. We accidentally minmaxxed Ned to hell and back.
>>33960174remember that +automates successes means "that many duce are successes". + extra successes means "add this many successes after the rolls."So its 14 successes. Which is still monstruous.Ami's "Physical Prodigy" works the same way. Currently 3 of her dice are successes, as long as it isint related to combat.Lyann has that AND a couple enhancements that give her extra successes, so she gets a stupidly high amount of success when doing performance art. Singing, dancing, acting, etcAnyway, that is tremendously successful, anyway. Want to type a speech?>>33960250I wasnt aware willpower had a cap, but social combat doesnt relies just on willpower. Your social fi defense is based on manipulation (which is, for purposes of social fu, identical to dexterity in normal combat) and charisma (which is your stamina)So her willpower isint instantly eaten through. First I need to roll her manipulation and then her charisma, but she's not a social butterfly, for sure. Hold on a minuteBTW appearance does the same job as strenght when it comes to social combat, so Ned's social fu damage has a lot of automated successes.
>>33960338Eh she had willpower 7 and Ned did 10 social fu damage anyway, so she's practically frozen in stupefaction.Want to type something, or should I just type that Okaba and security arrive and take her away while she's babbling, her ideals compromised?
>>33960423Oh, since im updating his sheet, want to spend 2 exp to buy a specialty for diplomacy "Hostage Negotiations"? we do have 27 exp just floating about
>>33960451Sure. I have a feeling we'll need it for dealing with Euphy eventually.
>>33960250And no, willpower doesnt caps in this system. Or at least I can find no evidence of it
>>33960451I think he could use some mega dexterity and mega stamina personally. As for a speach, I don't really have one right now. Maybe something about how she's no god, just a sad little woman throwing a temper tantrum because the adults around are informing her that she has to follow the rules of society?
>>33960515That is both funny and... probably accurate
>>33960540brb baby wants some bread with butter, and apparently chocolate
>>33960572Alright, updated. Ned has 5 exp left as of right now since im giving him 5 exp for stopping a rampaging terat.Of course will have to have him go to train with Mai to raise his stats IC, tho.Also, I've been informed that I'm "good people" because I had a chocolate left on my night table. Felt all warm insideYou school your attacker into the arts of proper discussion and living on society, shocking her as you make her look at herself objectively, ready to use violence simply because she did not like someone breaking her rules, yet supporting a man who broke someone else's rules and rights.Okaba arrives and helps Aritsu. She's suffering from a bit of hypoxia, and the security team brings her a breathing mask, as well as scorting her to the clinic.Okaba: "I found the T2M trapped inside a bubble of fat in the parking lot. He'll be alright in a bit. Let's take you to the clinic so the doc can give you a once over, and i'll introduce the two of you."He frees your hand from the disgusting fat bubble. You are unhurt.
>>33960834This a prompt?
>>33960834"Fine by me"
>>33961117The doctor says that Aritsu is physically alright, and recommends she takes the day off, but the beautiful blonde says there is far too much work at the office to do that, so she is released into her own care.You are fine as well. The attractive brunette gives you a lollipop (as a joke) and sends you out.The T2M agent on the other side, has a sharp dehydratation problem since the woman who assaulted him absorbed a great part of his body moisture, but thanks to all nova's accelerated healing, he should be alright this evening.He introduces himself as Morn Connor, and shakes your hand. Like most novas you know, he looks like an idealized human, with shirt light brown hair. He has a "hero suit" that is white and red with a big T2M on the back.Morn: "I heard you stopped Big Lucy just by talking? that's amazing."***your cue
>>33961231"A lot of nova's forget that you can get quite far just by being really, really good at something. No tricks needed."
>>33961276Norm: "Well, looms like it will be interesting to work with you."Ned: "Likewise. See you this evening, then?"Norm: "Or sooner, sure."Aritsu: "Sir, should we go back to the office? a cleaning crew should have finished already, and we still have a lot of work." -she looks quite brave, tho it bothers you that her hair is messy and her tie is missing. The teragen is messing with your people, now? didint Thomas said he would try to calm things down?*** Go back to the office with Aritsu, and make sure she really IS alright Give Aritsu the morning off, or send her to supervise Mako & Sinoe, which would pretty much be the same Call Lyann and inform her of what happened. Have her try to ask Thomas whats going on OtherOf course, you can pick more than 1
>>33961437> Give Aritsu the morning off, or send her to supervise Mako & Sinoe, which would pretty much be the same> Call Lyann and inform her of what happened. Have her try to ask Thomas whats going on
>>33961437> Give Aritsu the morning off, or send her to supervise Mako & Sinoe, which would pretty much be the same> Call Lyann and inform her of what happened. Have her try to ask Thomas whats going onMan, we're going to start a gang war between the XWF and Terragen aren't we?
>>33961464>>33961504Alright, looks like I need to start preparing lunch. I¿ll see you tomorrow guys. Hope you had fun. We don't do much combat, but hopefully you enjoy it as it is?should we have more violence? sex? drugs? Euphie (which is like saying all of the above)?
>>33961533I think our mix is pretty good right now. I'll be busy tomorrow though, have a family funeral to go to. 2nd one this week.
>>33961574sorry to hear that, See you on monday, then. Anon will you be around tomorrow?
>>33961587Got work actually.
>>33961599Oh alright, Ill see you guys on monday, then. Take care
