Here the sky is dark, and it serves you well to continue unnoticed as your follow the remnant of the broadcast of song and power along waves yet defined by human science.Coming to a stop, near to invisible, in the skies above the Iselsberg Pass in Austria you take a deep breath out of habit and survey the scene. You know how deep underground the cavern bunker network below you rests, or at least how deep the point of broadcast you’ve been tracking is. Either way, this is where the man calling himself The Maestro will be found.Your name is Tsubasa Campbell, some weeks ago you died and became something more than human. Fused with a colony of ancient and possibly alien nanotechnology, you’ve been given a new chance to live and become the person you’ve always been prevented from becoming from old injuries.Having just destroyed a monster made entirely of this technology, you’ve tracked down its puppeteer to this mountain.>Try to locate an entrance>Make an entrance loudly>Make an entrance quietly>Other

Pitching forward and banking right, you sweep quickly around the mountain, spiraling around it toward the base. A storm began some time ago, coating the craggy mountain in white and lowering visibility. Extending your mundane and supernatural senses, you eventually find a camouflaged steel facade along one of the footpaths through the mountain. Cold wind bites against the carapace of red and black, increasing in speed and intensity at your approach. Tearing away into the facade, you find it conceals a complex vault door, though you feel no hum of electrical power. The power surge from your earlier interference must be yet unresolved beyond these doors.Compressing down to your baseline mass, you duck into the opening and stand before the vault door. Still breathing from habit, your musculature tenses and relaxes in anticipation of violence. The thought of revenge against the maestro bringing you glee, and a shiver of hope.>Other
>>34726557>Smash door to piecesKNOCK KNOCK
>>34726557Let's bust this joint. No need for stealth now.
>>34726557There may be no power, but our magnetic and gravitional control should let us visualize and move the pins and locks to simply open the door. Do this quietly.
>>34726557I say we try to open the door quietly, if it has a lock or something, let's touch it and try to figure it out.
>>34726668>>34726673I'll second this idea, might as well be quiet until we know what's up. Moving just pins with the minimum of force, if we can cloak or negate any kind of emanations, that would be great.
I guess we can try quiet first? I don't really want to waste time though.
>>34726668>>34726673Use Awareness to see the path of least resistance to opening the door. Combo, pins, whatever. Also use it to check for security/traps on the door.

Walking up to the vault door, you lay a curious hand against it and extend your wings. The room fills with the hum of your own ability to manipulate electromagnetic forces. You feel and find the pins and internal locking mechanisms of the vault, normally controlled through an electric motor by a keypad here to the side.“Easy,” you smile.Laying a hand upon the door, your red hair stands on end as you fuel the circuitry of just the door with energy, and activate the motors to withdraw the primary locks from the door. From the direct contact, you feel a large manual deadbolt wheel on the far side. With concentration and precision, you being turning it by the use of your power with a soft beat of your wings in the confined outer hall.The heavy vault door slides forward a fraction of an inch. You pull it the rest of the way and find a long and dark corridor. Striding forward into the darkness, you duck into an alcove and fold your wings neatly behind you at the echoing approach of footsteps.Two men, in coverall jump suits and carrying automatic weapons come into view in the dark. Around their necks are large glowsticks, shrouding the dark corridor in green light.They converse in a language you are unfamiliar with, one motions down the way you came from.>Other

>>34727484Wait for them to pass us by, using Hidden Presence combined with Everything is Perfectly Normal to hide further into the alcove. Once they pass us, silently come up behind them and use our dirty fighting skills to knock them out.
>>34727525>>34727571>>34727574I think they're ahead of us in this corridor, and we ducked into an alcove before they came into view.>You pull it the rest of the way and find a long and dark corridor.>Striding forward into the darkness, you duck into an alcove and fold your wings neatly behind you at the echoing approach of footsteps.>Two men, in coverall jump suits and carrying automatic weapons come into view in the darkThere's no mention of them turning a corner, or coming in from a side tunnel.
>>34727652Ok? None of the people you quoted, myself included, ever suggested plans dependent upon them coming around a corner. We just wanted to keep walking past them, because we're kinda far beyond the point where humans with automatic weaponry can even delay us.
>>34727514>>34727595Given how this quest tends towards realism, knocking them out would either kill them, give them permanent brain damage or only last a few seconds.It'd be quicker, safer for us and possibly more merciful to just kill them and be done with it.
>>34727724Ignoring them and walking past them would just let them raise the alarm and get them to mobilize the nanite colonies they have in defense, giving the Maestro an opportunity to escape.
Rolled 4, 5, 1, 5, 6, 5, 3, 2 = 31 (8d6)Stealthing, 16d6 vs the aboveBest of 3
>>34727793I agree on everything but the opportunity for the maestro to escape. Our cosmic awareness is too strong for that. The alarm being raised doesn't seem like it will matter at this point.

9 vs 52 Degrees of success, How do you spend them?
>>34728062Spend one to drift by the two unseen and unheard, using our Hidden Presence and Everything Is Perfectly Normal.
>>34728062Bank em>>34728088That's what the roll was for. We already achieved that.
Letting your form bore into the shadows, you fix the two men with a stern gaze and relax your restraint over your ability to cloud the minds of others to perceive everything related to you being perfectly normal, even when there are things glaringly amiss or abnormal. In the dim green light of their glow wand lanyards you can’t see their eyes lose focus, but you still perceive them jerking slightly before agreeing to check out the sound coming from the main doorway.As they step past, you slip out of the alcove and proceed deeper into the mountain. You encounter no one else as the pathway takes a gradual incline, eventually become stairs. After a time, you find an intersection extending north and south, the eastward path you had been following extends ahead.Letting your awareness pulse, you clearly sense the point of broadcast and a sizeable cluster of nano colonies somewhere ahead of your to the east. To the north you feel the remnant crackle of electrical power, perhaps a battery store of power generator. South of you are several separate small clusters of nano colonies, not entirely active.>Which Direction do you proceed?
>>34728343...let's try south. Could be a nasty surprise if we ignore it.
>>34728343Go south, capture and take those nano-colonies while they're dormant.
Best not leave a potential enemy at your back...Turning from the staircase to the south, you progress on the even hallway until you come to a bright opening into a well lit cavern room. You hear the loud snap and crackle of electricity and smell fresh ozone and other assorted chemicals, as your eyes adjust numerous submersion pools, a series of holding cells, and numerous technicians working a variety of consoles. One man toward the center of the room stands over an open wiring access hatch with his hands plunged into assorted wires as arcs of electricity roll from his shoulders within a radius of three feet.In the dead center of the room is a large glowing column of clear safety glass. Suspended within it, you feel a writing sea of nano colonies.Each pool contains a person draped in similar fashion to the ‘emulators’ you encountered and still control in Tokyo. One of the holding cells contains cowering and afraid people, the other contains at least thirty body bags.The Maestro would do this? It makes your blood seethe and boil. It makes the red and black wet your lips.>Other

>>34728711Kill the techSpare the emulatorsEat the Colonies
>>34728711Close the door behind us.Grab the nearest tech and demand that the Emulators be released safely. The man in the center has nano colonies so be wary of him.
>>34728811>>34728786I would like to point out that the people getting the Emulator treatment are still hooked up, and we don't know what crashing the system will do to them.You may end up killing them.
>>34728950I meant killing the technician, for the record
>>34729003And I said that killing the technicians controlling the system when people are still hooked up to the system that has obviously killed people by accident before, may not be the best idea.
>>34729027ok, thought you were only talking about breaking the machine
Reaching into the recess in the wall, you dig your fingers into the sliding bulkhead door. Using a combination of your own physical strength and magnetic manipulations, you slide the bulkhead closed quietly. Striding forward, you let the red and black loose slightly, through circuitous patterns it spreads across the floor. They slide into the systems all around and paint to you a clear picture of the technical makeup of the room and its equipment.The consoles being worked on are monitoring the stasis of the would be emulators, they haven’t been integrated with the colonies in the oxygen rich fluid filling the submersion tables. The glowing column is a stasis and storage container. Both are currently being powered by that man.They take notice of you as you whip your arm forward, morphing the read and black into an extended tendril. It cracks against the easily broken surface of the column and shatters it. As brilliant blue liquid cascades out around the tendril, it seizes on contact. Drinking deeply, you feel your body suffused with new raw materials to be processed and dedicated to your expanding systems.The red patterns, always in motion, across the black of your slick carapace glows as they turn to you, one of the technicians shouting something in what you assume to be german.“Let them go,” you say sternly as you prime your power to disable their systems. Their consoles spark and go black with the faintest effort.Feh, traditional technology.The lightning man regards you aggressively.>20 points acquired>Roll me 20d6, best of 3

Open ended roll successful.Writing
Whipping the tendril again, you break open the holding cell and growl as the technicians hurry to the submersion tables and begin sitting up the Emulators to be, free from the suspension fluid, the ten or so people cough the strange fluid and look about confused.The hair on the back of your neck bristles as the man with electrical powers rises, dropping wires back into the access hatch. Lights immediately dim, replaced with the red emergency power lights this room is equipped with.He begins to approach you in anger, flashes of light arcing from his body as your wings spread threateningly in response. That man shouts something angrily, in German, as he approaches.>Other
>>34729443Who gives a shit about angry man. Pick him up and shake him a little, then put him down and leave.
>>34729443Angry German is angry. Hopefully he doesn't have weird powers that might end up killing the victim/emulators by accident

two spent, 3 banked.Writing
Matching the oncoming approach of the man of lightning, you reel your fist back and punch him hard in the gut as he begins to crackle with power and charge at you in turn. Your carapaced fist turns into his stomach, the shockwave causing him intense pain as he doubles over against your arm, coughing up a bit of blood in the process.The Red and Black liquefies on your hands as you grab his face, and flood his system, his unconscious body gurgling and spasming as you carefully remove his nano colonies. You smile as you drop him to the ground in a heap, a satisfied expression coursing across your face as you lightly moan.>12 points acquired.You’ve absorbed more nano colonies today than you’d ever dreamed. You feel your body surging with raw and unmolded potential. Stronger. You can grow stronger. You want...you see the people, technicians and prisoners alike, looking at you in a slight amount of fear. You see the body bags, filled and piled in the adjacent holding cell. The Maestro wanted to spur your evolution, so he has. Lets see if he can live with the consequences.>Big Changes Quest 22 EndEnd of Thread voting...you have a metric shit ton of points in the bank.
>>34730198Ah, thanks for running.Had hoped to finish off the Maestro this thread.
>>34730198MAX OUT AMAZON
>>34730198Thanks for running, Gyoji.
>>34730198Can we get like 'Universal Translator' or something to understand languages? I kind of want to know what they're saying... so we can also understand the terrified babbling of our inferiors as they cower before us (I'm joking, I just think it would be nice if we learned to speak or understand lots of languages)
>>34730198How much to turn Electro-Gravitation to Precise Electro-Gravitational Control?Or to add Higgs-Boson Dominance?
>>34730198fuck it, max out Amazon if we can, get a translation ability with whatever is left
>>34730198>>34730276Assuming it's valid, I'd support getting a 'Universal Translator' type power.>>34730302>Making the combat even more inaccessible to anyone without a degree in physics
>>34730198Maybe some sort of power to interfere with electronics? Now not even satellites can track us!
>>34730198Supporting maxing amazonuniversal translator if it's possible and we have enough points after that
>>34730364None of this stuff is beyond high school physics, anon.
>>34730364We have, like, 32 points?Maxing out Amazon would be 18 points to get it 5d6?6 points for a new power "universal translator"6 points for 'electronic ghost'?
>>34730420Higgs Bosonswhat the fuck do those even do? high school level? bullshit
>>34730421nah, 6 points for technopathyI wanna be able to directly fuck with other people's nanomachines
>>34730421Wait? 54 points?What the fuck? I was just reading the pastebin.We havepoints coming out of pores and shitUSE THEM
>>34730438They carry mass. And it didn't realize knowing about a particle that was in the news now qualified as having a college physics degree.
>>34730420Well fuck me for not knowing the exact applications of the higgs-boson particle off the top of my head then.I can understand what our powers do most of the time, but it's really not the kind of complication I enjoy in a combat system and it tends to be that one guy (you?) makes a plan and nobody else can be bothered to sift through their memories of high school physics so they just support it and that irks me.>>34730506Possessing a power and being able to actually use it intelligently are two different things under this combat system; if we don't know it's application we may as well just spend the points on theme music or stylish hair.
>>34730421Max out Amazon = 22 pointsUniversal Translator = 4 pointsTechnopathy = 4 pointsWe still have 24 points, use it to improve other things?
>>34730564Upgrade core skills?
>>34730564Use them to improve our two new skills by a few levels, upgrade Cosmic Awareness (either by adding d6s or getting it up to High-Grade if that's valid), maybe improve core attributes.
>>34730601Earned Your Masters in Engineering: 5d6Fuck it, we're an engineer. All this nanoshit must be teaching us something. It's an extra 12 points for it.We'll design our own totally awesome nanomachine critters to breakdown space garbage/debris while working for JAXA or something
>>34730661DAMNIT YOU'RE RIGHT[X]DO THAT THING

>>34730707This pleases me.
>>34730707and there we go
>>34730707Do we have more points that we're not aware of? Or was pastebin adding our past totals and current totals that we banked?I just want to make sure
>>34730707Technopathy would only affect mundane tech, and I think we should increase our Symphony of the Ancients to fight whatever else recovered alien nanotechnology that the cult is goin to throw at us.
>>34730540Your ignorance isn't my problem, nor should it be the main character's, who is more intelligent than you.
>>34730847Even if we get rid of technopathy, we'll still be 1 point short of improving 'Symphony" which needs 6 points to improve to 2d6
>>34730901Not intelligent enough to know how to fight with a particle people are still studying though.
>>34730956And yet we use nano machines to somehow manipulate gravity, electromagnetic fields, and the perceptions and thoughts of people in real-time. Higgs-Boson manipulation isn't any different to us doing things that science can't yet do with technology that we haven't developed yet.
>>34731075You know... just how much can we change the world if we start making things or discovering technology to benefit humanity? Will we be able to create specialist machines that'll allow us to pluck interesting molecules for study and combining? Or something even more cool?
>>34730901Actually, his ignorance is your problem, since Tsubasa is controlled by anons and there are no combat prompts.Your condescending attitude really isn't helping your case.>>34731075The problem remains that we don't know the applications of the particle IRL, and cannot use it to it's hypothetical level of effectiveness.It's shit-tier at best unless you start listing things we could do with it, and even then I've already locked my votes in.
>>34731075>because this stuff happens behind the scenes I totally understand the process behind it and how our character is accomplishing itgo home
>>34731186It's because the stuff is happening behind the scenes that we don't need to know every IRL application. Just because we don't know how things exactly work has not been a detriment to our ability to use them. >>34731150If we can control mass, then we can affect a thing's weight, how easily or difficult it is to move, and how well our gravity control can affect something. Also, even if something were to become invisible it wouldn't be able to hide its mass and the way it affects space around it.
Oi, keep it civil if you can, gents.
>>34731339Okay, that's good, some real applications have been listed and I'm now giving this power serious thought since I know what it would be capable of.I'm assuming that last point falls under something which high-grade cosmic awareness would already be capable of picking up on, but it still seems pretty good.What about more direct applications that don't play off of our other powers, any ideas for those?

>>34732428>is this an all or nothing kind of thingIf the control was good enough to select 50% of the atoms in a body, sure, you could control whether it's a full-on disintegration or an explosion of gore.I'm just thinking it's a way to destroy nano colonies if we can't control them (if they resist our Symphony of the Ancients) or tear apart big kaiju better.
It seems there are some suggested point breakdowns, what are the totals & who has thrown their support behind them?

>>34738786All these votes for MAX AMAZON. The power is getting to our head with the size were going to be. All good and IC. Just need to be really big, but everyone see this as normal.
>>34739592Enhanced perceptions and sense are no good if the muscles themselves can't move fast enough, or the message signals from the brain are still bound by the speed of electro-chemical signals rather than light.And even if the nerves were fiber optic bundles transmitting information at the fastest possible speed without using micro-wormholes, you'd still be limited by the signal lag in the interface between the nerves and the muscle.
>>34739592None of those protect against any kind of nano colony attack aimed at disrupting nerves, though. Making the nervous system, muscles, and brain work on light signals can protect against what could come at us from whatever other nano colonies are left.
>>34739655I agree that fiber-optic is too slow.So, temporal twisting is the was to so for our reaction time. We already bend space casually.
>>34739705Fiber optics have issues as well, superconductors would be better, and still lightspeed is done right.. could also help with real reaction time as well if applying to the brain. No matter how fast we can respond physically, we'd still have to be able to process, recognize, and formulate a response to a threat to send a reaction to first.
>>34739705Might I suggest "Direct Neuro-Muscular Control"?Using an innate complex application of our electrical manipulation abilities to control our body directly, rather than rely relays of any sort.May have applications outside just our own body..
