It was a little disorientating, at first – the collective screech of thousands of tires and hundreds of impatient horns snapped and popped back and forth through your skull, like fireworks. But eventually you learned to mediate the din, resolving one sound from another, and keep your attention from spiralling in a million directions at once. You buy a cheap hotdog at a street corner, delighted to find that the guy running the stall seemed to have a policy of sparing no mustard. It’s 15%, maybe a full 20%, less stringy that Queens hotdogs, and if you’re not mistaken, you can taste WAY less sweat, hair, and other miscellaneous filth (once you think you tasted a hint of rat, a few years back. You stopped eating from that stall). Score.Munching happily on your processed meat and mostly-bread, you fish your phone from your back pocket, juggling thoughts to and fro through your brain. You’ve been meaning to give Victoria a call, you’re just not entirely sure what to say. The Soylent Green approach seems a little inappropriate in her case. Victoria was never an addict – she liked people to think she was, it made her fit in – but she did used to steal trace amounts of Jack, to take before you guys would… you know… do stuff.Whatever. You punch the number in and wait. Normally you’d take seat, but the curbs in this part of the city are kinda busy, so you’ll just have to walk and talk. Eventually, the ringing stops, and you hear someone fumbling with the receiver. “…JJ?” She sounds kinda out of breath.>Present Time: 3:12 PM>Hunger Level: 3>Current Funds: $775

I hope something exciting happens in this thread
>>34163738Oh very true, I have though to that, but I think JJ would worry about that anyway.Plus it'd be funny to have JJ go from fear-stricken paranoia to red faced imagining his ex getting railed by some else and maybe add a little bit of character development about his current opinion of Victoria.
>>34163860>Oh very true, I have though to that, but I think JJ would worry about that anyway.I fucked that up.I meant that I did think of that, but I believe JJ would get paranoid about Creeper or her running from somebody anyway.

>[X] telekinetic Fonz>[X] Try some small talk or something.>[X] Engage moderate paranoia“Um, hey, Victoria.” Your throat is lumps. Man, you used to be good at talking to this person. “Out for a run?” “Yeah…?” She’s silent for a moment, the instance beginning to drag, before you realize that that was one of those yeahs with a question mark at the end. She swoops in to keep things going just as you’re about to respond. “What’s up?” You can hear the frown in her voice. “Is this going to be another talk about the dangerous direction my life is headed in?”“Uh, no, it's not…” Wait. “…Yeah. Kinda.” You hear her sigh, and hurriedly add: “But it’s different, I mean, this is stuff that’s actually happening.” A door clicks open in the background. You think you hear her kicking off her sneakers. “Okay, sure.” She doesn’t sound all too convinced. Hopefully that will change. “Look, there’s this… thing…” You dodge around the subject of the Jack for now. “…going on, and it’s about to bring a lot of shit down on everyone in the game. There’s going to be a lot of angry mutants going after anyone remotely involved in Jack production pretty damn soon, and I don’t think you want to be in the middle of that.” You swallow. “…And, I guess, I don’t want you in the middle of that.” >Persuade Roll>DC13>+3 modifier

The one I…” And you get the impression that she’s chiding herself inwardly here. “…told you about. Right?” “Yeah.” You respond. What else is there to say? “Look… I know… this probably sounds like I’m about to mess up your life again, or something… but I wouldn’t be doing any of this stuff if it wasn’t really important.”Quiet. “…You didn’t mess up my life, JJ. You broke up with me. It happens.” She clears her throat, and you hear her running jacket sloughing off her shoulders. “You did it without saying anything, just upped and left, and that was pretty shitty”– haha yes you suppose that was but hey let’s not dwell on the past yeah? –“but it wasn’t the worst. Do I really need to keep my head down a while?” “Yes.” You say, nodding for some reason. “You really do.” “Alright.

>[X] All.You do that thing, that thing where you sort of hiss a breath in through your teeth. “Tempting…” It’d be like old times. Sort of. Minus Creeper, of course, and some other stuff. “…But that could get us both in a lot of trouble. Maybe when this whole thing blows over.” It’s not going to blow over. It’s going to explode and fill your ass with shrapnel. You think she can probably tell it, too, maybe from the tone of your voice. Maybe from the general weirdness of the call.“Yeah, you’re probably right.” She chuckles, as if that’s sort of funny. “See you.” “See you, Victoria. Stay safe.” She hangs up. The phone feels kind of warm and prickly in your hands, and you just stare at it for a while, before checking the time and getting on your way. You’ve got an hour and three quarters before you need to be at the Tabbycat. Time to spare, time to waste… >[ ] Get there early to talk to Ms. Hardy.>[ ] No, fuck that, hopefully she won’t even notice you. Pick up some more eats.>[ ] Check out films.

>>34164744What? I'm sure she'd love to hear us out if we come smelling in like the road! Right guys? Guys?..finne, let's go bathe.
Do you think we'll ever make noticeable romantic progress with Laura?
>>34164824I thought we did with the whole hair braid thing. It was small, sure, but at least some part of JJ is consciously aware that she's attractive but totally doesn't want to drop his spaghetti noodles all over the place
>>34164824we already have.She regularly decides to cuddle up to us to sleep, holds hands, smiles when she hangs out with us and flat out ignores other men.Girl digs JJ, just that her personality needs opening up more.
>>34164824We have. She has initiated, more than once, physical contact and does smile around us occasionally.

>>34164744With our level of senses we should be able tell how clean we are, even to levels others can't.
>>34164824We just need an outside source to force a conversation between us. JJ is too busy to be thinking seriously about relationships right now and Laura ia Laura.

>>34164869Maybe. It's probably going to take a little long though.
>>34164824I get the vibe that we have, more or less. It just hasn't become physical yet, which given JJ's nerves and Laura's background probably won't happen unless we push JJ to do something

>[X] Get there early to talk to Ms. Hardy.You sigh to yourself, the noise lost amid the bustle of Manhattan. You guess it’s time to bite the Hardy bullet, isn’t it? Or the... riding crop, probably. Something like that.Finding a discreet alley (much harder than you’d like in this part of the city), you take flight, making a bounding leap up the side of some big grey office block. You shoot up into the sky and spread your wings, coasting on the breeze. You don’t hurry, making sure to keep yourself cloaked from skyward eyes (though, really, who looks up anyway?), but you find yourself making good time, Brooklyn soon spreading out beneath you like… honestly kinda like a big brown stain. You swoop down onto the roof of a squat apartment block and shift your form back into that of a land-animal. Taking a moment to shrug on your hoodie, you descend to the streets via a nearby fire escape and make your way on foot from there.The evening is deepening as you approach the Tabbycat, the shadows of the two, sphinx-like statues at its front sprawling out across the road, as if basking in the falling light. You approach the broad shouldered bouncer (a different guy from last time, you think) with no small amount of trepidation, briefly entertaining the thought that Hardy, in a fit of vindictiveness, could have issued the order to drop you on your ass on sight. He doesn’t hit you, however. Just regards you with a big, looming scowl. >[ ] Try to explain that you’re here to see Ms. Hardy. >[ ] See if you can actually pay to get in now.>[ ] Nope, leave and come back invisible.>[ ] Write in.Sorry about the wait.

>(1/2)>>34165146>19>greato!“Um…” It’s weird. Big people never stop being intimidating. You could probably throw this guy across the street, then roll him up into a ball and juggle his ass up and down town, but he’s big and that makes you nervous. It just hits some gibbering, animal aspect of you. “…I’m here to see Ms. Hardy. I had a… a meeting with her… a while back…” He doesn’t stop scowling. Instead he sort of… smiles and scowls at the same time. Which is good but confusing. “A’right.” He steps minutely aside. “In you go. I’ll be checkin’ up, makin’ sure you ain’t lying your ass off.” You nod lots and lots and head in, through the dim, musky red entranceway, into the dark of the club. It’s quieter than you remember it being, just one attendant at the bar, customers smattered sparingly throughout the tables off to the right. Rolling a bit of awkwardness off your shoulders (a bit, not all of it), you approach the bar. The young blonde behind the counter raises an eyebrow at your sunglasses in doors and general state of attire, but doesn’t say anything.
>>34165381Not as unlikely as you think. They probably went about dissecting mutants that had control over their powers looking for a means to harness it and from their they created a synthetic compound that can curb unstable mutations.
>(2/2)“Uh… hey.” You swallow. “I’m looking for Ms. Hardy.” She pauses, a little taken aback, and looks you over once more. “Are you sure?” Oh for Christ’s… “Yeah. I’m sure.” You actually felt your claws popping out a little there. Down, boys, not now… “I… I guess I’ll go get her for you, Mr…?” “Green.”She scurries off, leaving you feeling about the right amount of insulted and out-of-place. The minutes tick by, you doing little else but shuffling nervously from one foot to the other, before you spy Ms. Hardy, her heels picking at the floor as she goes, descending the spiral stairs leading up to the raised veranda above. She’s not glaring at you, but her expression is not happy. In fact, you can’t tell at all what she’s thinking – she’s a blank. “Mr. Green.” She states, as she saunters toward you. “How strange. First you vanish, and your friend comes to explain your absence. Then she begins to miss shifts, and you turn up. I don’t suppose she’ll be here tonight?” Oh man you kinda forgot that Laura held down a job here for a while. >[ ] She’s dealing with really persistent stalkers.>[ ] She’s… ill.

>[X] She’s dealing with really persistent stalkers.“Well…” Hold up. IS she going to turn up tonight? You kinda assumed she’d gone into, like, deep shadow mode after the incident at Creeper’s compound. Deepest shadow. “…She’s dealing with these really… these really persistent stalkers.” You’re grinning. Why are you grinning? It’s technically the truth, after all. It’s not all of the truth, but you can’t exactly tell Ms. Hardy that you’ve been sucked into an action movie and the finale is yet to play. “So, yeah, she’s having to take a few days off…” You can tell that Ms. Hardy believes absolutely none of that. 0%. Maybe less than zero, like negative twelve or something. She leans against the bar, watching you carefully. “Interesting.” She says, in the most dismissive fashion possible. “I don’t suppose you came all the way here to tell me that?” Uh… “No… not exactly…” You slow down to stop yourself from gibbering. It’s not easy. “I was supposed to meet someone here… and I thought I’d take the chance to apologize to you myself. For being a no-show.” She nods in silence, looking you up and down with narrowed eyes.“Well.” She smiles thinly. “I suppose that’s something. I thought I’d seen the last of you.” Her smile broadens, filling out her expression in a wry, predatory fashion. “Seeing as you have business here, I assume you paid the entrance fee?” >[ ] Uh….>[ ] Um…>[ ] Well…>[ ] Y-yeah totally um that happened. >[ ] Nope.>[ ] …How much is it? >[ ] Write in.

Oh by the way, Laura would totes be a wizard. She'd read all the rules and all the classes, absorbing every feat, spell, and mechanic, and devise the most optimized character possible. In fact, she'd probably point out that everyone should be playing wizards, as there is no logical reason to be anything else.

>>34166018Laura not CoDzilla? She'd likely take that wizard PrC that unlocks access to all Cleric spells as a wizard.
>>34165971>>[ ] Nope.Unless the entry fee is equivalent to one charming smile and a statement of intent. Then we paid in full....Okay, fine, I may have skipped the smile.

>>34166171Um, no. I'm one of the people who posted the other this
>>34166018She'd be the worst DM ever wouldn't she?
>[X] Many.“Uh…” You squirm. She watches, a perverse sort of enjoyment evident in her eyes. “Um… Well… y-yeah that…” Oh, man, no, you can’t lie. She knows. She knows. You hang your head a little. “Nope. How much is it?” She laughs under her breath. “A significant amount. My clientele generally have a great deal of spending money. I could waive it for tonight, however…” You brighten up a little. That’s pretty cool of her. “…assuming you can pay some other way.” She winks. Which is not something you thought you’d ever see. “Uh… I guess I could…” You think. You think. You’ve got lots of superpowers, right? Surely one of them has some kind of use here… “I could…”After a moment, she furrows her brow, her icy tone slipping in to cut you free from your internal debate: “Mr. Green, I’m asking you to play. Tonight.” Oh. Right. Yeah, that makes much more sense.>[ ] Okay. >[ ] You're supposed to be meeting a dude, though...>[ ] Nah.
>>34166432>>[ ] Okay.
>>34166432>[ ] Okay. I don't think this is up for debate.

>>34166432>[ ] Okay.>[ ] You're supposed to be meeting a dude, though..."I'm supposed to meet a colleague here, though, so may I send him a message first? And where will I clean myself up?"
>>34166432>>[ ] Okay.>>[ ] I-I'm just gonna go play that piano, then. With my fingers.
>>34166432>[ ] Okay.
I hope we roll a nat 1 on our performance
>>34166432>Okay>>34166483were already clean, for once. Shoot our meet a message and play.
>>34166432>[ ] Okay.text Remy, tell him the entry fee is a little steep and ask we if can meet somewhere else next time.
>>34166514We can't crackbitch the piano, if I recall right.
>>34166532gay as fuck yothen we better get a nat 20, I want an extreme
>>34166432>[X] Ok>[ ] Mind if I have a little time to warm up? Haven't had the chance to touch a piano since the whole "Cocoon/attempted mindrape thing"
>>34166532its like two nat 1s in the same rollits just improbableand we do have karma points still jic
>>34166514Nah, it's just going to be very mediocre. Not "JJ accidentally the piano..."
>>34166432>>[ ] Okay.My grin at this moment may be larger than my face.Do we have Remy's number? If so, send him a text. Tell him to listen when he gets to the Tabbycat.Hell, send a text home."I'm playing at the Tabbycat. On the piano. With my fingers."
Here is my suggestion for our performance:>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biv68BD8EQQ
>>34166432>>[ ] Okay. >>[ ] You're supposed to be meeting a dude, though...Not much use in doing this if it keeps us from the only reason we have to be here at all
>>34166635That's not bad, and the tone kind of fits how JJ's life has been as of late
>>34166635I support this nomination
>>34166661Well, getting another job, but the job we have with the detective agency pays out bruddy gut
>>34166635we get a bonus if we play classical stuff like Liszt, Rachinmoff, and chopin though
>>34166778Indeed, though I feel my suggestion is more appropriate for JJ's current situation as >>34166673 said.
>>34164935>>JJ "I'm here to spill spaghetti and kick ass and i'm not very good at kicking ass" GreenWell, this is my new nickname for JJ now.
I'm starting to think we don't need to roll for piano.crackbitch will just have to wait longer I suppose
>[X] Okay.“Oh.” Oh, yeah. You feel a little sheepish now. A little more sheepish. “Yeah, I can…” You feel your fingers flex experimentally. “…I can do that.”“Wonderful.” She says, smirking. “If you’ll follow me, then…” She directs you not up the stairs, as you were expecting, but down to the side of the club, near the padded alcoves set along the walls. The piano set under the shadow of the veranda is not quite the specimen as the one upstairs, a little less tutored in years and stately in fashion, but it still has the dominating presence of an old instrument. You feel that strange, sacred sense of calm upon it, radiating off its panelling, like cool, sweet tea, like the view from the dunes… “My benefactor”– Silvermane. The super-duper criminal. –“isn’t here tonight, so there’d no need to put on airs.” You flinch uncomfortably as she steps behind you, laying her fingers across your shoulders. The feeling lingers for a moment, but ebbs gradually away, the warmth of her hands transforming into something vaguely reassuring. You feel almost like a child. “Okay…” You say. You don’t know what else to. Sending a text to Remy informing him of where you’ll be, you sit down before the altar of the piano, the holy warmth suffusing you. You breathe in its aged scent, slipping off your gloves and slowly, respectfully, running your fingers along the keys. You feel it awaken. You take a deep breath. >[ ] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjutQ97DRhw (1)>[ ] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biv68BD8EQQ (2)>[ ] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2Q9HiiRtEc&hd=1 (3)>[ ] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa0Z6g1XJkU&hd=1 (4)

>>34167178Nah, it's not that important.Though the superior choice is clear.
>>34167152>Rolling dice>For this choiceGo kill yourself faggot.
>>34167103Unless JJ got to play video games with someone from Creeper's gang, he shouldn't be able to play #2.He wouldn't know it.
>>34167228Yeah, that's why I didn't vote for it either. It is nice though.
2, we don't want to be known as the classical lizard do we?

>>341671032 its perfect for the meting
>>34167251>we don't want to be known as the classical lizard do we?I do.
>>34167241Oh yeah, really nice, but it doesn't make much sense in this context.Unless he's freeballing it and accidentally composes that piece, though I'd like to hear QM's word on that.
>>34167103Ask what she wants to hear.
>>341671031 or 4
>>34167329>Ask what she wants to hear.Music and not the sound of a socially awkward lizard man stalling for time.
>>34167276I just wanted to say we don't want to be 'typecast' as classical only. I want to throw in some jazz and go Hiromi Uehara on their asses later on.
The thing I'm wondering, is how JJ is supposed to play I know we have a lot of powers, but we have yet to develop the ability to grow extra arms.
>>34167378Agility and flexibility would probably go a long way to letting him play it. Mind, it would sound pretty sharp.
>>34167378Contortion + Agility.
Just listen to the vodka soaked fingers of the Master dancehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-zKWgjrOmI
>>34167251This is my preferred endgame

>1You hold the breath in your lungs, your thoughts clearing, the misshapen clutter of the world retracting. There are no footsteps outside, there is no breath in Ms. Hardy’s lungs, there is no laughter upstairs, no skitter of dice, nothing between you and greatness. You are nervous, but composed, your fingers settling into place, shoulders straightening – you feel the change rush through you, climbing the arch of your being, righting you. You step into your true shape. The first note ignites in your breath. You feel yourself fall into it. You don’t even know what you’re playing until you’ve begun, you construct the piece around its base components, the intrinsic shards of hope and passion that hold it together. Rachmaninoff dips into your soul and courses through you, like lightning through a storm rod, galvanising, bringing life, converting wonder from the raw bones of silence – it’s alive, it’s alive! You play. >Perform Check>DC10>+3 for Agility

>>34167589Damnit, me.At least we can't critfail piano.
>>34167256What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated Magna Cum Laude my year in the Julliard School, and I’ve been involved in numerous public concerts, and I have over 300 confirmed solos. I am trained in classical composition and I’m the top soloist in the entire United States of America. You are nothing to me but just another hoi polloi. I will tone you the fuck out with poise the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of musicians across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. Youre fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can huffily ignore you in over seven hundred ways, and thats just with by sighing. Not only am I extensively trained in polite disinterest, but I have access to the entire etiquette arsenal of the Association of Concert Bands and I will use it to its full extent to patronizingly huff your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little clever comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldnt, you didnt, and now youre paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. Youre fucking dead, kiddo.Seal Copy-pasta is hard.
>>34167589JJ is a virtuoso. Crack-bitch has to try extra hard, for those who don't know.
>>34167565I love the way you write, Crusty.
>>34167632Ha, i appreciate the effort.
>>34167589Oh thank god we can't critfail playing piano
>nat 1 gets spent in nigh failure proof piano roll>another nat 1 well out of the first 3>most of the wasted rolls are garbagethings are going well for this thread. Too well...
>>34167589Go away Tiger. It's a good thing JJ can't critfail piano playing.
>>34167690Technically he can... It's just very unlikely.Crit failing would probably result in him getting so into the music that he breaks the piano with his super strength.
>>34167776Actually, it would probably be JJ being so lost in himself that what he plays is so horrible everyone is like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE,
>>34167933Nah, I think JJ is talented enough that even in "the zone" he would be able to tell if he was playing garbage.
>>34168062I mean he'd get stuck in terrible memories and lost in them. And let that out as a cacophony of discordant sound.
>>34167776>>34167933>>34168062It'd be kind of funny if him critfailing with three ones in a row caused him to create great music that will only be appreciated in like the 52nd Century and is considered horrid shit today.
What is JJ's darkest secret?
>>34167586>17It tugs you up, it tugs you down, it tugs you to and fro and storms about you. You don’t control it, only ease its passage into the world, unfurling-creating it, giving it purchase on the existence of solid things. Eventually it perishes from the world in the closing of the final notes, but you keep going. You invoke Schubert, ignoring the table on the far side of the club, where a man in a ridiculous costume rises to drunkenly request that you “play Free Bird.” He doesn’t exist. They don’t exist. You don’t realize it until you’re a parade of notes in, but your two hands are doing the work of four, skipping between keys with incredible celerity. The feeling swelling in your chest, you let it roar in you, let it tread sharply-softly from your fingertips. You don’t know how long you keep going – you play anything that comes to mind, anything at all, often before you even know you're summoning it. You recall the spirit of Liszt, and of Horowitz, and Rubinstein – you even dredge up a bit of that bad jazz that comprised the entirety of your adolescent rebellion. It flows and flows, and comes and goes, and rises and falls… “Gotta say, mon ami…” You blink. Part of the world, the substance world, intrudes into your universe of beauty. “…I never took you for the type.”Remy leans against the side of the instrument, grinning down at you. You… you guess you’ve been playing for a while. >[ ] Explain that you were roped into it. >[ ] Keep going, you can easily talk while you play.>[ ] Stop, find a table. >[ ] Write in.

>>34168249>>34168220JJ was already pretty good pianist, but with all his powers combined his music could be considered supernatural.Just imagine how he'll play at Agility 4 and with that muscle memory ability... he could copy pieces on youtube, and play them expertly without ever having to look at a sheet.
>>34168296Nah. Slower and less formal. Basically JJ stops thinking or caring about what he's playing. He just keeps his hands moving while talking and this comes out.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qMU17puYnwor>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO32dVF6fgo

>>34168392>perfect imitationYea- no. That's a bit of a step down from being able to stretch and caress each note into an arrow aimed right at the feels of everyone in earshot. Don't get me wrong, you're on absolutely on the right track, it's just that we're (going to be) better than that.

>>34168627>OffspringWas going to say we should reserve that for any JJ-Laura spawn, then realized just how broken a mutant that could manifest any power their subconscious tacked on to their self image would be. I now suspect JJ is going to turn out to be sterile, or already have a kid somewhere.

>[X] Keep going, you can easily talk while you play.You’re smiling. You can’t seem to tuck it away, either. “Yeah.” You admit. “I guess I’m not the spitting image of the great composer.” You don’t stop, of course. You’re enjoying yourself. You shift your posture to face Remy, letting one hand idle while your other continues to crackle to and fro across the piano, bespelling it with the erratic energy of that old jazz that enchanted you in your youth. The older man tips his shades – revealing bright, searing red irises mired in solid black sclera – as if to say “well, you’re just showing off, now.”He’s somewhat right. Somewhat. Showing off would be Liszt. You think, with your newfound dexterity, you might even be able to pull a duet off one-handed. It wouldn’t be easy, but it might be possible. “Well, we all a lil’ rough round the edges.” Says Remy, fishing through his long coat. Eventually he draws a long, thin slip of laminated paper – one of the tickets, you presume – and sets it down in the piano. “That’s yours, homme. Best look after it.” He stuffs his hands back in his pockets, possibly a little furtively, and regards your piano-playing hand once gain. “Where’d you learn this stuff?”You smile secretively, the dunes whispering in your ears. “In a house overlooking a lake.” -------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ84: END>Congratulations!

>>34168867Claws 2/ Echolocation
>>34169092Sometimes the basics are worth it, anon. It's why we maxed out Stealth and Senses as quickly as we could, while also nabbing other tricks along the way.Think of it this way. Once Agility is maxed out, the sky is the limit for grabbing everything else, as we've already maxed out his Strength.
We can never have too much dodge.
I think agility 4 is a good stopping point. Now the hard part is convincing the rest of you.
>>34169166We actually waited on Invis for a bit. I think it kinda worked out, but I'm so glad it's finally maxed.
>>34169183Sure you can. Happens when you don't get tagged but you can't stop a friend from bleeding out after she gets hit.

ETA for next thread?
>>34169293One step closer to Lizard Taskmaster.
I'm still going to vote for healing vitae until it gets added to JJ's list
>>34169166If you honestly believe that, youre more foolish then I, and I voted for Phasing.
>>34169228But... but... agility 5 = no crack bitch for ANY agility/dodge roll EVER!That said, I'll admit that there are other good powers we could get instead.
>>34169293Yep. Looks like I'm back to voting for taserhands.
>>34169290I don't know what the fuck he was thinking, chasing echolation when their was clearly two major options. It's like he thought voting for Nader would win or something
>>34169341he's a fucking idiot namefag with evil dice powers that follows just about every quest
ENHANCED AGILITY takes it! You are now a true jammy dodger!>>34169212You know, I imagine you as a Breezekeeper sitting at a keyboard.
>>34169332This. There really is no reason whatsoever not to eventually grab Agility 5, if we have the points for it.I don't mind waiting awhile for that though, there are a lot of other things Agility 4 just opened up, on top of upgrading things like tasers and claws.
>>34169376JJ have any /tg/ related interests?
>>34169341>Nader to winNader got more then Ecolocation, this was a Ross Perot vote.
>>34169377Agreed.Agility 5 for after we get Vitae, Animal Affinity, Claws 2, Wings 3, etc. etc.
>>34169376Any idea when next thread will be Crusty?
>>34169413Don't forget kinesics/sequencing/muscle memory.Vitae is still at the bottom of my list of priorities.
>>34169413>Agility 5It will be winter by the time that happens>Animal AffinityDon't fucking taunt, don't you dare make me think that has a chance of winning
>>34169400Do you want him to?Lemme think. Would he have been young during the big Yu-Gi-Oh explosion? I don't remember when that was, just that there was a period where lots of kids started playing it.
>>34169459>Vitae is still at the bottom of my list of priorities.It's near top for me.And I'm fine with not having Taskmaster path, but having it would be alright too.>>34169464>>34169480Better than the other choices.
>>34169485I think it exploded around, what, 2002?
>>34169459Muscle memory + Genetic mimicry level 1 + some of Noriko's asian-ness = We become Bruce Lee Jr.
>>34169485>Would he have been young during the big Yu-Gi-Oh explosion?Yeah. That was around when I was little.Granted, he'd be like 5 or 6 when it happens, but I can see him playing it a bit.
>>34169464JJ needs a kripto, anon.Imagine, all the ghetto dogs in new York, at our beck and call. We will call them Spots.
>>34169450Possibly Monday or Tuesday. I wanted to do one on Sunday but it's a friend's birthday.
>>34169459mine are the inverse, because I don't have blood phobia and unless we get Triage (the black guy with healing powers rightclops recruited to his new team) on the Tunnel snakes, I'd still like to get some kind medical ability for our comrades besides go to hospital and hope they get treated without a scene.>>34169485maybe the pokemon card game? maybe Joyce introduced to 3E in poorly thought out attempt to fill out her group?
>>34169485Sure, I could see JJ dabbling
>>34169485I think JJ would have been young enough to try and get into Duel Masters.
>>34169525I will never vote for Genetic Mimicry. I just really don't like the sound of it at all. Too skeevy.
>>34169464Why? Because you think your retarded blood/spit swapping vampire shapeshifting shit would win?Get real.
>>34169546still want to know wether jack has casued in up tick in wendigo happenings
>>34169556>maybe Joyce introduced to 3E in poorly thought out attempt to fill out her group?JJ was That Guy when he was little.
>>34169525>Genetic mimicry it's a fucking waste
>>34169556>maybe Joyce introduced to 3E in poorly thought out attempt to fill out her group?Yes, I can see this.
>>34169535eating things you can have meaningful conversations with is disgusting in my opinion, that's why i'm so against Animal Affinity.
>>34169485Nah, he's got his thing already with the piano and the magic tricks. Any more and it just dilutes into what anons want him to represent at the time.Thought I would not be opposed to some d&d hijinks back at the station. Who knows, maybe Gaby picked it up during her Art classes or Noriko used to play Dragon Quest and made the jump to pen&paper when her powers manifested.
>>34169248Fuck you, none of us deserved OMD.
>>34169535>JJ needs a dogAs long as it scrounges for itself I have no problem with keeping an emergency food source nearby. Laura might need to cut its vocal chords so it can't give away our position though. Actually, given (>>34168965 image) maybe having a dog around isn't the best idea...
>>34169525I care less about the kung fu applications of muscle memory and more about being able to rapidly learn better stealth techniques from Laura. Because let's face it, JJ largely uses invisibility as a crutch.+Kinesics, because it'd probably help JJ's spaghetti a lot to have a better read on what people are thinking.
>>34169622That, and it gets too magical realmy for me. You need some kind of liquid or spit from the person, and given how much of a nervous chuckle fuck JJ is ALREADY I don't see him wanting to use it
>>34169591where does it say it needs to be ingested?quit dragging your personal hang ups into the quest
There are a lot of people backing Healing Vitea and I do think it would be good.But, the thing is... So far the only person from our team that we ever put into harms way is Laura. And it won't do shit for her.
>>34169581Same. Not to mention the X-men universe is seriously lacking in awesome Gamma-mutants. Most of the important guys have no cosmetic impairments, just awesome powers. I'd really like to stay looking like a lizard elf.
>>34169647>Actually, given (>>34168965 image) maybe having a dog around isn't the best idea...It might be therapeutic.
>>34169485It's time to g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-genetic prophecy
>>34169689Until Kimura rips it apart in Laura's face.
>>34169677>Kevin on the vampire hunt>Lucas and the hellions at the Creeper's lab
>>34169674>where does it say it needs to be ingested?He has to consume it, dumbass.
>>34169341>>34169375Echolocation tied for second place. Which was 1 vote behind the winner.>>34169459Vitae's about the middle of mine.26th on the list. Solely for the extrapolatives.
>>34169535being able to talk to animals majorly sucks from a roll playing perspective.It would force us to be a vegan faggot.
>>34169596Mebbe. Probably not.>>34169625>Noriko used to play Dragon Quest and made the jump to pen&paper when her powers manifestedHilarious. This minor form of suffering pleases me.
I like the Joshua Tree.
>>34169674JJ may consume the genetic material of others to take on aspects of their appearance, and even mannerisms.Level 1: After consuming a small amount of blood, saliva, or another genetic sample of a being, JJ may temporarily take on some of their minor aesthetic traits. He cannot become them, but he can take on their hair colour and type/ethnicity/eye colour/etc.Right there, sir
>>34169733all because wrenloft flip floppedthe one time one vote makes an actual difference>>34169731are we talking healing vitae or genetic mimicry?
>>34169485I'm now just imagining him doing all those ridiculously grandiose movements and poses they did whenever they played cards that shouldn't be possible to do with a human body.
>>34169674pastebin.com/JYrcDPPkRead the pastebin
>>34169771Mah nigga, I just want to become murie Jesus.
>>34169792>are we talking healing vitae or genetic mimicry?Both.These people really don't like the idea of blood going from one person to the other.
>>34169677Be sides Laura, at minimum Nori and Lucas are joining us for this dealing with the Jack situation. (Probably some LaylaClones too but they don't count with reguardless to injuries.) They don't heal fast enough or far enough for my comfort level.
>>34169810Meant mutie jesus
>>34169745>It would force us to be a vegan faggot.This. JJ doesn't have the kind of income to be able to get all that fancy vegan food, plus he desperately needs the protein.
>>34169771>>34169810Muh brothers! Let us bless the people with the fruits of our labour!
>>34169771me too, but its not taskmaster and we'd have to take supportive/passive powers to get it so anons hate it with a burning passion.
>>34169851>we'd have to take supportive/passive powers to get it so anons hate it with a burning passion.No. It's because it'll cost like 21 powers to get there.
>>34169810Mutie Jesus, gathering all his fellow muties under one tree to make it that much easier for the Sentinels to gun 'em down.
>>34169827The funny thing is; I think that some of the people that are die hard Healing Vitae supporters are also against genetic mimicry.I don't understand it. It's the exact same concept.
>>34169842I don't think so. Didn't CJ say that small animals accept JJ eating other animals as just nature?
>>34169745No it wouldn't. There's no reason why he would. His instincts tell him that meat is fucking delicious and there's an easy way to acquire meat without killing them yourself. Not to mention almost ate Marrow.
>>34169827Wait, genetic mimicry only requires blood ingestion now? Which one required us to eat a portion of someone's brain then? Autonomic Seq?
>>34169842>>34169745>I like making shit up and passing it off as fact!>>34169863that would be spent on passive/supportive powers instead flashy things like laser cock or ice jizz
>>34169842Pretty sure >>34169876Also photosynthesisesisesisis
>>34169745No it wouldn't, you fuckers are retarded. No one has to empathize with an animal, and just because an animal can 'communicate' doesn't make them anymore intelligent before we got the power
>>34169899So?21 fucking points.
>>34169896GENETIC MIMICRYJJ may consume the genetic material of others to take on aspects of their appearance, and even mannerisms.>Level 1: After consuming a small amount of blood, saliva, or another genetic sample of a being, JJ may temporarily take on some of their minor aesthetic traits. He cannot become them, but he can take on their hair color and type/ethnicity/eye color/etc. >Level 2: JJ may now shift fully into an exact copy of a human being whose DNA he has recently sampled. This change only lasts for a matter of minutes.>Level 3: JJ may now maintain the change for an hour. NOTE: Crusty said that level 1 lasts longer than Levels 2 & 3.
>>34169876>have a conversation with a pig about how nice weather is>Then heading down to the local butcher and get a slice of his cousinyeah that's fucked up man.
>>34169886>almostNo, we did. But she got better so it's cool.
>>34169771me too me too
>>34169863This. Too many points for too little immediate payoff, and right now JJ is in a position where he needs as much personal power as he can get.>>34169899If there ever came a time where JJ actually managed to hold onto some measure of stability and wasn't leaping into the deep end of the pool, then maybe I could support focusing more on passive/support abilities. Trying to convince people to get better at growing vegetables while Creeper is out there somewhere turning mutants into drugs and the organization that made Laura is on the prowl is an uphill battle you're not likely to win.
>>34169906Then why does anyone want to talk to animals. Animals are fucking stupid and wouldn't be able to help us at all.
>>34169745Just because animals can communicate, that doesn't mean that the meat in the store shelves can. Especially considering JJ's carnivorous urges, it's HIGHLY unlikely that he'd quit meat completely.
>people bringing in pol tier logical fallaciesI'm just glad all this sperging, bullshit, and bile waited till the end of the thread
>>34169943ELECTROSTATIC CLOUD GENERATIONJJ’s pores may emit a thick cloud of charged particles that visibly obfuscate him, interfere with electronic detection, and can eventually be used offensively.>Level 1: JJ may slowly emit roughly three square meters of charged particulates. This area essentially acts as chaff, disrupting electronic signals and targeting.>Level 2: JJ may more quickly emit roughly six square meters of charged particles. They become more strongly ionized, making it even more difficult for electronics to be of use within that radius.>Level 3: JJ may direct the cloud as a stream or a gust, allowing him to selectively dampen or short electronics on a specific target. Additionally, the charge can be focused on objects within the cloud, causing them to explosively short out.NOTE: Even level 1 would stop the signals from tracking devices or cell phones near JJ. (Invisibility level 5 does not)
>>34169827I was talking genetic mimicry, and I think most anons assumed Healing Vitae wouldn't need to be ingested to heal a wound, the ingestion just boosts healing of the natural body altogether, otherwise how the fuck would we know it heals anyone? Other then if some came loose and spilled on someone?
>>34169906humans already empathize with animals, how bad would it get if we could actually hold a conversation with one?
>>34169943but it seams that power would manifest if we were ashamed of being a mutie. but jj thinks its great, just the world sucks. it just doesn't seam like something he would develop its out of chater like dragon breath
>>34169986>Animals are fucking stupid and wouldn't be able to help us at all. Information network.Long range warnings and surveillance.Rat swarms.There's a lot of shit you can do with animal affinity.
>>34170016I trust that Crusty could come up with a non-contrived way to reveal to JJ that his blood has healing properties, but I sure as hell can't.
>>34170014this is actually one dam cool utility
>>34169986To use as scouts? As spies? Information gathering? To get Green Finger? Just because they aren't anymore intelligent doesn't mean there wouldn't be a benefit or control over them.
>>34170014It's an activated ability and not a passive one, so it's not a very good one. Not to mention when it's activated, you can't use the phone to call.
>>34170022animal affinity would not turn JJ into a disney princess vegan.what with the occasional craving for raw flesh and all>>34169986to get pigeons to shit on people we don't like
>>34170102>JJ's cooking>accidentally cuts himself>doesn't think a drop of blood in the food would matter much to anyone's tastebuds>serves it>people get healed
>>34170097Talking to animals does NOT make them loyal to us. It says it right in the power description that it we can't make an animal do something it doesn't want to do.And if we need an information network we could just call Chat.
>>34170153Who said we need them to be loyal? Fuck, just plant a rat in one of Creeper's vans, catch up with and grill it for what info it can give us.
>>34170153because TOTALLY Chat is available 24/7 and TOTALLY is down for dangerous shit
>>34170014To finish it off.ANIMAL AFFINITYJJ develops the ability to communicate with and command fauna.>Level 1: JJ may understand the basic gist of what an animal is conveying. He may suggest actions but not compel them.>Level 2: JJ may entirely understand ‘animal-speak’. Smaller land bound animals almost automatically trust him and are more suggestible.>Level 3: JJ may sense nearby wildlife. Airborne animals and large land bound animals almost automatically trust him and are more suggestible. JJ may emit a loud noise that acts as a ‘beacon’ to chosen creatures.NOTE: This is not mind control. Animals choose whether or not to help JJ.
>>34170153>And if we need an information network we could just call Chat.She's not available 24/7.She's also not around New York City a lot, but animals are.
>>34170153Of course you'd need to convince to do that for you. Everytime.
>>34170097we would have to make friends with the animals to get them to do shit for us, and since friends don't eat other friends it would force us to at least try and go vegan.and being vegan is for faggots.
>>34170199You would also need to convince animals to do shit for you every time.
>>34170153It does make them trust you. Which, as you said, since animals are pretty fucking stupid, means you can tell them that a guy hunts on their young and they'll be inclined to believe you.
>>34170207that vegan thing you're trying force would make pol cringe
>>34169986>you saw this guy? no? cool>hey birdie, track this guy while I go do x>go and bite/peck him while I make my daring escape!plenty of uses
>>34170231Why are you bringing /pol/ into an entirely unrelated discussion?
>>34170153>>34170222It makes animals trust you, akin to something like charm person I'm sure. Shit, just so long as we ask them to do something they'd likely do already it shouldn't be a problemFor instance, having a bird shit on a person. Oh no, that's so wildly out of character for a bird!
It's been getting popular recently, and I haven't got a decent answer yet.Why do people like healing vitae?Seriously.It grants level 2 healing. For a matter of hours. To people who ingest enough of our blood.Any situation where people are hurt enough to consider drinking lizardelf hoboblood? They're too hurt for it to be enough.It has some decent extrapolatives, yes, but they're really expensive, and there are better things to be getting.
>>34170189>>34170196You do realize that we would need to talk to every rat squirrel or bird in that "survalence network" and convince each of them individually to help us.And since it wont let us contact those animals over a long distance we would need to physically go find them to get whatever information that they gathered.Not to mention we have beeter senses than any animal in New York. Animal Affinity is a shit power.
>>34170237>eating turkey at thanksgiving>think about your amazing bird bro>realize you could have talked/been friends with the turkey you are eating>throw up in your mouth
>>34170207>Level 2: JJ may entirely understand ‘animal-speak’. Smaller land bound animals almost automatically trust him and are more suggestible.>Animals automatically trust you. If you tell them somebody is an enemy, they'll believe you because they TRUST you.
>>34170308Either drink blood and get healed or be crippled and/or die.
>>34169761Then lets have it be a thing. She plays tabletop games because she can't play videogames anymore. Also, thanks for running.
>>34170315>realize you could have talked/been friends with the turkey you are eating>shrug and keep eating
>>34170308People have become increasingly paranoid that other members of our motley mutant menagerie are going to be lethally wounded and die unless we have some kind of healing ability. I actually wouldn't mind getting it eventually, but I have no interest in its extrapolatives and I'm still looking to get sequencing/muscle memory first.
>>34170308Muh vampire/Mugga Messiah overtones mostly.
So it's settled, tazerhands it is!
>>34170314Not really if you've got them to trust you with appropriate levels. Flocks of birds and pack animals warn each other of danger to begin with.
>>34170320They still aren't going to sacrifice their own life to save us. And what the fuck is a rat going to do to the enemy that we can't with;>Level 3 strength>Level 4 Agility>Geo visionI could go on.Not to mention that we have better senses than any animal in New York. We don't need to ask them what they can see. We can see it ourself.
>the majority of its supporters only want 1 level. locking in the last utility for 1 point and nothing else is a waste.>animal affinity has more and better extrapolatives>animal affinity has a wider range of usage than genetic mimicry>the hoodie and sunglasses disguise has worked well for a long time>We have max invisibility if we absolutely must avoid detection>level 5 GM has brain eating>>34170308nowhere in the pastebin does it say vitae must be ingested
>>34170314They already trust us, so I doubt we'd need to do much convincing to let us know what they saw. As for our senses, sure, yeah but an animal is less obvious spy and depending on the animal could have valuable insight on people we're investigating. How easy would it be to ask the cat of the victim to tell us what happened? Or to ask a dog to tell him where his master keeps his drugs? Our senses are good, but we're not omnipotent. There's going to be a point where something is a witness to somethingAlso, your forgetting people are animals. I bet you guys Animal Affinity will allow us extrapolatives to manipulate humans
>>34170455>Geo visionOne of these days we really are gonna have to put that to good use, even if it's just picking up a screw off the ground and hurling it straight through Creeper's kneecap.
>>34170470I'm going to vote for anything that is not Animal affinity so it can fill the slot.
>>34170315>realize you don't give a fuck>continue eating normally
>>34169745Oh boo fucking hoo, you can't stand not fictionally eating imaginary meat?Who cares what JJ's diet is? Are you this oversensitive to the concept of vegetarianism?
>>34170455>a ratYou see, that's why you don't deploy a rat. You deploy ratsYou see the s after the t? That means there will be several rats. Swarming like a motherfucker, because rats tend to be pretty fucking confident when they outnumber the enemy 50 to 1
>>34170490>I bet you guys Animal Affinity will allow us extrapolatives to manipulate humansToo much of a stretch. Besides, Kinesics lets us get as close to mind-reading as one can get without actually being psychic, and that's good enough for me.
>>34170308Regen 2 heals third degree burns, man. That's pretty fucking useful
>>34170470Electrostatic Cloud Generation > Animal Affinity > Genetic Mimicry.ECG also fits better with JJ's existing taserhands power.
>>34170516Oh hey, I'm going to vote for anything that's not Genetic Mimicry so it'll fill the slot.
>>34170539Well, at lvl 4 AA gets the ability to make humans AND animals shit their pants and run in terror.
>>34170539Why? The second to last power allows us some effect over humans, so it's not really that much of a stretch
>>34170573it has to be activated and it fucks with the phone but there are worse utility powers for sure. I think AA has more versatility but wouldn't be pissed if ECG won.
>>34170573It also builds with dragon breath for white phosphorus if I'm remembering correctly.
>>34170490>an animal is less obvious spyBeing invisible is even less obvious than an animal>>34170516This>>34170536You'll need to convince each individual rat that attacking that guy won't get them killed. Rat's care about themselves more than they care about you, no matter how much they trust you.
>>34170539I'd guess you could call it animal magnetism
>>34170519>>34170525so what is it?Do you want JJ to be a heartless or a veganfag?the only winning option is to not to pick up Animal Affinity.
>>34170653I can think of very few instances in which JJ would actually be pressed to unleash the hell that is white phosphorus on someone.
>>34170661Except we can't be everywhere. How is that a hard concept to grasp? Sure, we can go invisible, but what if we have other shit to do? Just asking a rat to tail somebody while your out saving muggahs, and then following it's scent sounds super useful
>>34170389Perfectly understandable, killing party members is really the only threat Crusty can bring to bear, since he certainly isn't going to end the quest.So buffs to make others more durable are the only sensible upgrades. Nothing else would actually impact the course of the story much.
>JJ played piano>squared things with Felcia>didn't crackbitchand the cherry on top, we didn't powersperg and shitpost like>>34170669 until the end of the threadI hope it becomes a regular thing here
>>34170669>Not realizing the difference between eating pets and eating cattle.
>Animal Affinity 4>Can call insects and persuade them to do shit for us.>We become a weaker version of Skitter.As cool as that would be, I don't think it fits JJ very well at all. The roar is pretty sweet though.
>>34170755he's just shitposting anon
>>34170669>being this circularly retarded
>>34170328...I reiterate.>Any situation where people are hurt enough to consider drinking lizardelf hoboblood? They're too hurt for it to be enough.If they're going to die/be crippled without drinking our blood, that is not going to be changed much by level two healing. >>34170470>HEALING VITAE>Requires: Level 2 Healing Factor>Cost: 3>This ability bestows curative properties upon JJ’s blood. Imbibing his blood cells can temporarily boost the capability for healing in a person up to one level below his current Healing Factor level.Tell me. How does one IMBIBE blood in timely fashion without ingesting it? Osmose it through the skin?>>34170544It's accelerated healing, but nothing beyond human means. It's the same as if you don't have enhanced healing. Only faster.60x baseline, IIRC.If they're going to die from anything immediate - blood loss aside - it's not helping much, and even then little more.
>>34170755>Not realizing the difference between eating something that can talk back to you and eating something that can't.
>>34170827>Not realizing that most animals aren't intelligent, and therefore not sentient so who gives a flying fuck
>>34170802I guess you could shove it up their asses. It might get absorbed faster that way too
>>34170802>accelerated healing, but nothing beyond human means.>Is explicitly "60x the healing rate of a human".
>>34170715Rats are fucking stupid is that a hard concept to grasp? What happens if the person it's tailing gets into a car. Or goes into a nicer part of town were rats get noticed?>following it's scentWhy not follow the persons scent instead of the rats? It feels like your teying to make up reasons why this would be useful but none of them hold water. Animal Affinity is a shit power. It can't do a single think that we couldn't do our self with less effort.If we can't tail them our self send Laura. If we can't send Laura send Gabby she has super sense also.
>>34170308It can heal 3 degree burns currently, has the potential to grow back limbs if we keep increasing Photosynthetic Biology, and opens up some cool Extrapolative Mutations.
>>34170669>JJ gets AA>Chat asks him why isn't he a vegan"My carnivorous animal friends convinced me that eating meat is perfectly natural."
>>34170669So we switch to fish or find out cows are kind of assholes, no biggie.
>>34170802I don't even want Healing Vitae that badly, but it could still be the difference between someone dying and someone getting to the hospital / a doctor in time.
>>34170802are you pissy because you have some kinda blood phobia or you scared for "muh taskmaster" ?
>>34170802By the very fact it's accelerated healing makes it above human means. A human can't heal 60x baseline, ever. Rapidly healing a bullet wound to an organ after we've removed a bullet could stop someone from bleeding out.We fight gang members and paramilitary organizations. Small arms fire is going to be a thing.
>>34170856I think we have slightly different opinions on what classifies as sentience and not.
>>34170669One, even if he did develop empathy for less intelligent species, he has no reason to stop eating eggs and dairy products, why would he be vegan and not vegetarian.Two, what kind of pathetic player are you to get this analdevastated over mere hypothetical fictional vegetarianism?
>>34170901>and opens up some cool Extrapolative MutationsJoshua Tree a shit.
>>34170856Animals can FUCKING TALK in a universe where Chat exists.They have a secret animal language.
>>34170952that was a good album, you take that back
>>34170952We don't need Animal Affinity to get Joshua Tree
>>34170827>Not realizing that the meat in the store shelves is already dead. >Not realizing that a hobo not eating meat doesn't change a damn thing.>Not realizing that most of your animal friends eat meat as well and think it's perfectly normal and fucking delicious.
>>34170977So can ants.
>>34171003fingers crossed anon
>>34170940don't take away eating Burgers from JJ, that's just cruel.
>>34171000Where did I say we did? I was quoting a post about Healing Vitae.
>>34170889Rats are actually fairly intelligent as far as vermin go.
>>34170977Animals can 'TALK'. Do you notice the air quotes? They are fucking animals, if they were intelligent and had their own fucking secret squirrel language our environmental ecology would be a lot fucking different. What, you think they are all sitting in a bush secret of Nihm style with their tiny animal clothes?Are you this fucking stupid?
>>34170903>not a silent stare and a "what do you mean."JJ seems the type to just tuck those kinds of things deep inside and act like they aren't a thing
>>34171013we crave raw flesh every now and then too.Genetic destiny wouldn't lets us go vegan.and JJ's diet is solar heavy these days
>>34171070>What, you think they are all sitting in a bush secret of Nihm style with their tiny animal clothes?I'd be totally down with that.
>>34171127Mouseguard quest when?
>>34170907Daily reminder there are three skrulls in a field somewhere who think they are cows.
>>34171162>>34171127I'd totally play that
>>34170940The kind that's desperately trying to drive his own agenda of getting some other utility skill without being honest about it.
>>34171162>Mouseguard Quest set in the Marvel Universe.
>>34171172they got turned into burgers and they got ate by people and then the people got super powers and decided to become a biker gang dedicated to hunting and killing all Skrulls on earthSkrull Kill Krew
>>34171162>>34171182>>34171222Mouseguard fighting the Borrowers.
>>34171222>mouse universe>where all the marvel characters are mousesthey are cute and go on adventures and cheese puns
>>34171276>>34171222Oh god, Mouse Jubilee. She would be best buds with Mouse Laura, a mouse with attitude
>>34170877>>34170930You know what I meant.Nobody is going to be regrowing limbs, organs etc. Nobody will be recovering from anything with our blood that they wouldn't anyway.It just. Comes. Quicker.>>34170901Granted. Improved photosynthetic biology does make vitae a great deal more viable.I agree entirely.Why not get that first, seeing as it has broader scope?>>34170919It does make some difference. A very minor difference as outlined above, yes, but agreed.But there are other powers which could make a similar difference, which have utility outside this specific scenario.>>34170921Honestly? Not that much higher on the list. Starting taskmaster route is 16th priority.
>>34171319...yes, it comes quicker. That's the point. Closing off a wound or healing a fracture rapidly in a matter of an hour is the point. I don't... how do you not understand how rapid healing could not be useful?
>>34171244Was that any good?
>>34171318>the one anon who always talks about Jubileestop being so recognizable
>>34171318I don't have words for how cute that would be.
>>34171429Um... different anon. Though I like Jubilee too
>>34171447>>34171454apparently there are two
>>34171319>Very minor differenceMakes more of a difference than any first aid a doctor could give.
>>34171319look, if Triage or some healer mutant falls into our lap, Healing vitae will drop in priority for me. Until then, I'd like a nice safety net in case something bad happens to one of our non healing muggas.giving our allies a temp healing factor and the potential for extrapolatives make it a solid conservative investment.I believe bad things will happen in this quest and I want to be ready for them when they happen.>>34171414I never really read much of them to be honest. They showed in the Iniative during the Secret Invasion event. I think they got a short lived series afterwards though.
>>34171475I think Jubilee is cute too. Wouldn't mind it if she joined the Tunnel Snakes (Laura could use a friend that is a girl)
>>34171481It could rapidly heal a gunshot wound,too. Gunshot wounds heal normally, if you can survive them and are able to stop the blood flow. Gee Tiger, how useful would it be to rapidly heal a gun wound without going to a hospital because were unregistered mutants?
>>34171319I'd focusing on photosynthetic biology first, but got to work with the flow of voting.
>>34171549Stop it shut up, you're ruining my map of posters
>>34171512Same thing. I mean there's Icarus with the Guthries, but we're not in very good terms with them, considering how his sister is essentially decided that JJ is out to get them. Not to mention their family is not necessarily the most reliable bunch.
>>34171639>>34171653stop it, my map is ruined, THINGS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME;_;
>>34171549I agree. I hope she makes a appearance.
>>34171639How did she show up in the photo if she is a vampire?
>>34171603>map of postersWh-What?
>>34171318Mouse Laura is distantly related to a Wolverine, and has fangs and claws to show for it
>>34171675but Jeb is totally okay with us and Sam is at least neutral2 out of 3 ain't bad
>>34171706Maybe see spent the vitae to do it?
>>34171361And we're going in circles again.Okay. Say someone has a wound. That can be healed by way of our blood.You know how else that can be healed. Use bandages, and wait a little longer. Fucking magic.Now say someone is hurt enough that drinking our blood actually seems like a viable route. They drink our blood. How much difference do you imagine will be made? In this dire scenario?I- it- screw it. I'm getting too frustrated, I'm making the same arguments, and getting the same responses that keep ignoring the same points.I shall retire from the debate while I have sense left.
>>34171706vampire lore is sketchy in the MUrule of cute too
>>34171811Healing factor>>>medicinestop trying to get our muggas killed
>>34171811BECAUSE YOUR ARGUMENT IS RETARDED! "Oh gee, look at this bullet wound, put some pressure on it and you'll be good in one to two weeks, if we can get you stitches and you don't bleed out. Sure would be useful if we had some power that could help rapidly grow soft tissue (that it would naturally at a snail's pace) to close the bullet hole in an hour instead. OH WELL
>>34171907don't forget infection and removing the slug
>>34171920Right, the risk of infection that would occur if we tried to let it heal naturally. Not that there's any risk for that, being hobos right?
>>34171811I agree with you. I'm supporting it now while it's got people pushing for it, because I don't know if the support will wane or not. If a push for increasing photosynthetic biology was happening now I'd be supporting that, but it's not.
>>34171811>What healing vitae does not doRegrow limbsRegrow organs>What healing vitae does doRepair damaged organs and limbsBoost immune systemAccelerate the natural healing>What does this mean?It means that healing vitae will save a person from bleeding to death almost every time, but it won't save them from organ failure if the organ is dead.
>>34172070but it would give us more time to get them to medical treatment
>>34172101More then likely
