You also have the mystically-gifted powers of danger sense and heightened intuition and awareness. These powers have been causing you considerable consternation - the danger sense triggered earlier before you were hit in the head by a hacky sack, as a serviceable example. To get past this, you enrolled at Titans Academy, under the auspices of Professor Peter Parker.Your first day has been going... not badly at all. You've taken your new roommates - Vic, Gar, Jinx, Jubilee, and Starfire - out to dinner at a Mexican place, when your powers started going haywire. A moment later, an eight-foot tall giant of a man in a trenchcoat walked in.Your reaction: Do nothing. You sit. You stare. You wait. A few terse seconds pass. Finally, a waitress comes out of the back."Pickup?" He nods. "Name?""Marco.""Three Hijo de Putas?""Yes." She hefts a paper shopping bag that looks spectacularly full."Sixty-two ninety, please." He slides a fifty and a twenty across the counter, takes his bag of food...And fixes you with a glare. He says nothing. And then he slips out the way he came."...goddamn." Vic muttered. "That was some creepy shit - do you know that guy?""No..." You finally let a breath out. "No, and I'd be a lot less freaked out if I did." At least you seem to be safe for the moment - but something about that guy made the skin on the back of your neck crawl. And it wasn't just his size.The question is, now what do you do?>FREE ACTION

>>34873561Ask one of the teachers later if he's anyone to watch out for. Make sure to mention the danger sense going off too.
>>34873561Right, so yeah. I get warning bells even when nothing happens...but I do know he coulda kicked my ass easy if he'd wanted. Not many things set off all those warning bells.
>>34873561Ask Vicbro if he got a pic of the guy
>>34873561>Peter Parker.>titans academyI was going to complain that Peter isn't in the dc universe, but then I remember that not only is he in the DC universe (he appeared in a cameo in a canon story) but superman and batman are also canon to marvel u.Socarry on I guess
>>34873561Let's explain our danger sense to our team more fully, so they understand what the fuck just happened.

>>34873800See the first post. This is a fusion of the Marvel and DC universes.>>34873691"Are not all air raid sirens the sirens of danger?" Starfire gives you a look that says it should be fairly obvious. You ignore that. "Yeah, he looked pretty nasty, too. Just as well he didn't decide to start anything." Vic rubs his fingers together idly. You tuck into your burrito - the spicy-savory goodness helps to soothe your nerves. A moment passes, and the realization hits."You have a digital eye.""Uh, yeah?""Can you - are you taking a video capture?" "...ohhhh. I see where you're going." He smirks. "Yeah, I have a constant three-hour loop going. Let me save it, and we can run it by the Prof's." You feel a lot better all of a sudden. The rest of the meal is kind of quiet; when you get ready to go, the fog has started to roll in off of the bay, shrouding the streets. It's a little eerie, but kind of beautiful as well - and the lack of visual input means there's less to trigger your intuition. So by the time you get inside, you're feeling far more relaxed. Vic says he'll shoot an e-mail to the professors, let them see the video. It feels like enough for tonight; you're almost ready to crash anyway.You have about an hour before you would normally fall asleep; what would you like to do? >A - Just crash out. You're exhausted.>B - Talk to one of your teammates a while more (specify)>C - Change your mind. Try talking to Pete directly.

>>34874084Add an e-mail of ours with the air raid siren analogy, perhaps with the addendum that we have absolutely no idea dangerous /how/. Maybe he's just a really deadly guy or maybe he's planning on killing us in the future, the power doesn't tell.
>>34874319It's a little soon to jump at things like that. Let's wait until the professors actually get a look at our power.

You consider searching for Power Girl porn - until you remember that the Academy is an internal network. The professors can read your search history. Nope. Nope, not doing that. Maybe later. With your tablet. On a public wi-fi network. Instead, you end up looking up details on any Stark and Wayne Enterprises connections. =The two companies have little in common aside from certain medical technologies - prosthesis, mostly. Wayne Enterprises backed out of military tech in the 80s to refocus on medical equipment and civil engineering. The decision has not treated them as well as one would think, but it's allowed them to avoid scandals that have plagued Stark for decades. Meanwhile, Stark works with everything from power solutions to military hardsuits to consumer electronics. They have, however, coordinated on three notable items. The Delphi exoskeleton, designed to give enhanced mobility to paraplegics. The Wayne-Stark Sol chip, which remains the most popular cell phone processor in the world, and by far the most efficient. And the Model 117 arc reactor engine, which is making inroads as an alternative to the hydrogen fuel cell. The company execs have a history of teeth-clenched cooperation - word is that Tony and Bruce rub each other the wrong way, although it's hard to say how. Both men are tight lipped about it - Tony actually insists that he likes Bruce just fine. Really. Totally.=Time is about up... you have a little free time before gym class.

"Outtamyway!" "Do you-""Yeah, but I'm gonna be late!" Thankfully, Vic is making waffles for everyone - evidently he has a little streak of a chef inside him? He tosses you one, and you start to chow down as you run, the floppy waffle dangling from your mouth. It feels ridiculous, but it tastes so good that you hardly care. You end up in the gym, mouth full of waffle and stomach far happier, alongside a handful of others. Virgil is there, as is Starfire, the levitating girl from yesterday, and two others - an orange haired behemoth, and an athletic-looking girl with a black pixie cut. And...The legend herself. One of the last Kryptonians. The puncher of faces. Power Girl.Who, for the record, is perfectly recognizable even in standard gym wear."Alright, line up. You guys were slacking off yesterday - I want a good, solid workout from you. Kori, let's try for 800 reps at your usual weight." "Right!" She charges over to a weight machine that looks more like an industrial metal press. "...Virgil, we're working on your endurance today. Ten laps with the 10-kilo leg weights." He deflates a little, but nods. "Raven - you're with Virgil. No cheating with your levitation." A scowl, but she didn't resist. "Mammoth?" He lets out a sharp grunt. "Speed bag, thirty minutes. WITHOUT destroying it." He squints - and then nods twice. Challenge accepted, it seems. "May, let's try to get you up to Class-10 today. Start your warmups." "Yes'm!" She drops to a set of pushups - wait, May? As in May Parker? You shouldn't be surprised. Of course Spidey would want his daughter to go to the school he's teaching at. "Aaaand...""William.""Will. ""It's your first day." "...yyyyes?" "You know what that means." "No?""It means I get to put you through the WRINGER." ===My internet is flickering. More updates in the morning.

Anyone else PeterxPG?
Damn, and I was just about to start complaint how the OP's writing style feels like reading a freaking script instead of a story. Write some descriptions, man! Tell me what things look like! Set the god damn stage!
>>34876189shame I dont have much of this
>>34876230so are we looking forward to the wringer?sounds kinda hot
>>34876305>physical low as shit>probably gonna fail>inb4 PG has a thing for weakshits like usDid anybody archive?
>>34876332Last one got archived.
>>34876332Actually it's medium. General argument lead to op saying MEDIUM ACROSS THE BOARD! You can dig it up in the last thread.
>>34875981We should get a robot.And when we get married, propose a toast at the reception, and tell her that Jesus loves her more than she will know.
So are our powers still a poltergeist that we don't know about, like we said in the last thread? Would that mean we have a Stand?
>>34876621I'm completely up for both of those.
>>34876792Totally up for this. Can we call it Head Games?
>>34876792I don't know what this means.
>>34876792Probably not we were probably born with this rather than developed it
So are these being saved on suptg?
>>34876865JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
>>34876865A Stand, from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, is essentially a guardian spirit, a reflection of your soul. Only you and others who possess Stands can perceive them (though in a supers setting, it would be more convenient for those with mystical and psychic vision to perceive it). Stands tend to have very unique powers, and no two Stands are the same.
>>34876957Yes apparently first one herehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34860238/
>>34876792No.We have precognition, because of an incident with a fortune teller at the fair.
>>34877024We can't shoot lighting with pre-cognition... this is awful.
>>34877010>no two stands are the same>pic is of star platinum>same as the world
>>34876927I believe in the first thread it was said we got our powers by screwing with a fortune teller
>>34877057The World had a bunch of other Joestar powers in its repetoire. You can even explicitly see DIO using Hermit Purple's power at one point.
>>34877039Well, we're also very good at extrapolating a lot of information from only a few clues.So we got that going for us.Also, pretty sure that shooting lightning is NOT a hallmark trait of a poltergeist.
>>34877063>You've spent the last few years - everything since that incident with the fortuneteller at the stupid parking lot carnival - knowing things that you really shouldn't know. You can extrapolate ridiculous amounts of information from small clues, and you have a sixth sense that alerts you when you're in danger. Which is all kind of cool, but at times your enhanced awareness feels like a bunch of voices all shouting in your head at once. Huh would you look at that. Shit I wonder what demon or spirit he J-Jammed into our soul
>>34876792I'd rather that not be the case. Nothing against Jojo I would just prefer not to have a stand.
>>34877080I don't know if one other counts as a bunch.Anyway, at one point Dio flat out states that they're the same type of stand.
>>34877122We're a knock off spiderman. We've got the sense but lack agility, strength, and wall sticking.
>>34877122Good chance it was more than one.Maybe the souls of 1000-fold dead.
>>34877134In that they are both close-range, high-power Stands. That describes a lot, in case you haven't noticed.
>>34877139Well, we have more than the sense.Odds are, with a little training, we could be a better detective than batman.
>>34877149False, he said it the first time Jotaro moved in his frozen time.
thread is archivedhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34873561/
>>34877139It seems like our sense got overclocked and fed crack, it's still pretty harmful to us if we don't get a better understanding of it
So...am I correct in understanding we are going to attempt to hook up with Power Girl? You know she could shatter us just by hugging right? Imagine getting her in bed...Maybe we would be better off with May?
>>34877371I am 100% on the may train
>>34877371She's the instructor. It wont happen. We'll worry about hooking up with whoever we get along with.
>>34877371Don't do it anon
>>34877413Oh I'd do it...I'd do it all night long!
>>34877371The dean's daughter?Normally I'd say no.If there wasn't so much yes.
>>34877468Peter's a cool dude...as long as we don't act like a total idiotic douche, then he should be fine with it
>>34877468if we don't come off as an asshole that just wants to bone the dean's daughter we should be a little less screwed than usual
>>34877371I'd probably prefer Jinx. Not just because she's best girl but because she's the only one who we have a chance of getting moar powers from.
>>34877542Why does that mean we have to date her? Can't... we just open the discussion of magic nonsense?
>>34877542but we can get spider sense training
>>34877561We lack the agility to exploit our spider sense. It will never work out well due to normal human limitations.
>>34877542True...it's a tough decision really, do we want to tempt fate and go with the dean's daughter and all the hijinks that go with it, or go with the girl who could show us the way to magic, and all those hijinks? which would be more fun?
>>34877581Doctor Fates Daughter would be a much better choice.
Would rather let the story develop before attemping to waifu any of them.
>>34877371Nah I'm good
>>34877542As a Jinxfag from Humbles quest, I'd rather go for someone else this time, because I doubt nothumble can pull off the personality Jinx got written with in TTQ.I am pretty happy Raven hasn't come up as a possible waifu though. Raven's pretttttty shit.
>>34877633Paragon of reason roight here
>>34877668Yeah I'd hate to Waifu an alternate reality Jinx. It just wouldn't be the same.
>>34877703It would feel like cheating on her.
>>34877601Lets say we do both?we may not have "spider sense" but we have precognition.We got alarms from that big guy (was it mammoth?) and nothing even happened at the time.I'm thinking we have a more long.term. kind of precognition, so lets say we're about to do something that would get us in major trouble down the road if one or the other girl found out. like maybe for example, one of them leaves a love letter somewhere the other might easily find it, we should be aware of it before it happens and be able to intercept it.If we were to go somewhere the other girl would run into us we might get red flags before we agree to go there.I'm thinking our precognition is more useful for a quest setting since we can plan around it.
>>34877559Well yeah but she'd probably be more willing to teach us if we were dating than if we were just friends.>>34877633Naturally. Think of this as just looking at who's the most appealing option as of now.>>34877668Fair enough, though I haven't actually read Humble's quest yet. Was put off a bit by the whole hiatus thing.
>>34877784Humble is still around, but he comes around for short burst to say he's been busy with shit and that he's still writing plans for the quest.I swear he's in medical schooling or something since he's busy all the time.
>>34877784It's technically complete. The continuation will be a reboot, so feel free to read the first.
>>34877668Agreed, wouldn't mind being friends though.
>>34877811Could be worse Could be Princely
>>34877840You should at least warn him of the impending suffering
>>34877811>>34877840Welp. Thanks for the info. I'll start reading.
>>34877948fuck thatit's like jumping into a cold swimming pool, best to just dive in rather than slowly wade down the kiddie steps
>>34877668Would it hurt you that much to shut the fuck up and not try to start a shipping war?
>>34877948(Different anon here) Was it any good? I'm considering reading it.
>>34878061Yeah it's good... but it ends abruptly due to Humble having RL stuff to do.. so it's great.. right up till it suddenly stops.
>>34878061Just Give it a shot
>>34878061Literally the best quest ever run on 4chan
>>34877668Blegh, never understood why you assholes worshipped Jinx so goddamn much
>>34877784That's how I viewed it. I just wanted to leave that reminder so some fool anon doesn't get his heart set on a waifu that doesn't work with how the quest develops.
>>34878159She was best girl by miles?
>>34878215Fuck that she wasn't.Best girl was Death.
>>34878139chillax sperglordif you look at the original post I voted against waifuing two girls.
>>34878226I'd argue with that... but spoilers.
>>34878215Aka she was standard bad girl flirty chick.
>>34878226Death was off limits due to the fact that she was our mother.
>>34878230You called Raven shit dude.
>>34878243Don't forget the soft caring center, the ability to teach us sum majyck, and that crazy reliability.>>34878268I'd say that's a vote against waifuing her.
>>34878283Soft caring center... so basically a catwoman expy then?
>>34878255Yeah I know.Would've totally gone for her if she wasn't, though.She's peachy keen.
...If this thing is somewhat focused on Young Justice (think there was talk in the previous thread), can we stop Cheshire from interacting with that ginger fuck?
>>34878292I dunno, I didn't write herask humble
Great it's happening
>>34878327Actually, even if not, can we still stop cheshire from interacting with that ginger fuck?
So what do you guy's think of the quest so far?
>>34878377It has potential.
>>34878377I'm liking it.Seems to be shaping up to be relatively casual, which is pleasant.Hope it can continue that way.
>>34878377looking good, seems like a lot of potential for fun
>>34878402Filthy casual. We're in a super hero squad. If we don't get to throw down with big bads wwhat is the point
>>34878419fun street level stuff?not being a tasteless buffoon like you?
>>34878377I'm liking it no Zatanna yet but I'm a patient man
>>34878436What's the point of super powers in a slice of life setting?
>>34878419I just don't want things to go horribly for everyone here.
>>34878523I understand at least anon. But out of force of habit I'm going to have to say Git Gud then pleb.
>>34878523Peter Parker... runs the school. Something awful will happen. Quests are Quests... things need to happen. Quests are like pnp you do shit you can't do everyday. Superpowers is on that list... if you just want to hang out with friends you don't need a QM.

AND we're back.==="That's it for today, kids. Get yourselves showered up and get ready for your next class." Power Girl calls out, and you nearly collapse, panting for breath. Laps with hurdles while carrying weights in hand, free weights, curls, squat-walks - all without time to so much as breathe. Your legs are burning, your lungs are on fire, and she's offering you a hand wait why is she- because you actually collapsed. Crap. "Not bad for your first day.""...thanks?""You're welcome." Her smile quirks to one side, as if to say 'yes I really did mean that'. "You won't get that treatment often, but we have to make sure you're ready for any field assignments.""And... you think I am?""Well, no." Blunt as a baseball bat. "But you wouldn't slow us down as much as some." A hearty pat on the back, and she all but shoves you towards the locker room. "Now shower up. You smell like armpit."==You are still completely exhausted when you slog into Science class, nearly on autopilot.

>>34883978>>B - You can stand to save a little. Up to the lounge!PB and J sandwich
The lounge it is. You can't eat out every day, after all.You'd guess around half the students are scattered around the room. Virgil and Kitty are on the couch already with May. Most of your team - sans Vic and Jubilee - are at the counter, and an assembly line of sandwiches is flying out of the fridge, thanks to the youngest girl you've seen at the Academy so far - she can't be more than 13. A stubby little brunette.As you get closer to the counter, she points at you. "Sammich?""Sandwich...?""SAMMICH!" She slaps one together in about twice the time it takes her to say the word, and passes it to you. A little too much mustard, judging by the look of it, but it beats fending for yourself.>A - Pull up a seat with your team.>B - Head to the couch. >C - Try to figure out what the deal is with little miss sandwichmaker.
>>34884167>B - Head to the couch.
>>34884167>A - Pull up a seat with your team.Thank her for the Sandwich.
>>34884167>A - Pull up a seat with your team.
>>34884167>A - Pull up a seat with your team. >C - Try to figure out what the deal is with little miss sandwichmaker.
"Thanks. It looks great.""Well, yeah. Kinda hard to mess up lunch meat and bread." She gives you a look like you're crazy; given that she's wearing a novelty fish beanie, that kind of says something.You grab the barstool next to Starfire and dig in. "Hey, Will." Jinx leans in with a faux-conspiratorial whisper. "The chief wants to see you when you're done eating. I think they've got some news on Mister Big, Angry and Freakout-triggering.""It wasn't a freakout.""It was totally a freakout and your denial only strengthens my argument.""Children, children!" Gar pipes up, waving his half-eaten hoagie at you - a hoagie you notice is nothing but cheese and veggies. "We can argue over this all day or we can agree that last night was just freaking weird. For the sake of the sandwiches, I suggest we go for the second option.""For the sake of the sandwiches." Starfire echoes in a solemn voice, before taking a chomp out of hers, >A - How bad do you think the news is?>B - Change the topic to something else. (FREE ACTION)>C - Wait for someone else to introduce a topic of conversation.
>>34884547>A - How bad do you think the news is?
>>34884547>>A - How bad do you think the news is?
>>34884547>B Complimenbt Jinx on the Fish Beanie
>>34884597That was sammich girl not Jinx
>>34884597>>34884614To clarify - yes. Yes it was. Thirteen year brunette old with a goofy looking novelty hat.
>>34884629Oh, then compliment her on the fish hat
The kid's hat is distracting. You're not sure why it's distracting you so much. It's just a red beanie wtih googly eyes and fins. Still, you feel like you have to say it."Nice hat.""Thankya." She seems rather satisfied, as much by the giant hero she's about to inhale as anything else."So - how bad do you think it is?" Gar grimaces a little."Professor Parker sounded kind of worried, but he isn't calling us all in right away.. So on a scale of one to Darkseid rising again, I'd say... like... four?""Where would a Skrull invasion rank on that scale?""I guess... six?" Craaaap. ===And much as I hate to say it, the ride pauses here for the moment. More quest to come tonight - and hopefully much more plot.
>>34884869Alright, I got to say it, I have no idea who is saying what past the 4th line. I'd really appreciate it if you'd try and clarify that much.Other than that, keep it up mate.
>>34884869Whos the fishHat chick?
>>34886170I think its Molly from the Runaways
>>34886170Adorable. That's who.
Did op post his twitter tag?
You know, I look at this, and I can only think psychic detective.
>>34884869do we have an eta on the next round of updates?
>>34888240We should totally make our secret identity "Psych-man" and get a sidekick called "tap-man"
>>34888240I keep thinking of this
>>34888791Hmm, sorry, meant "The Catch" not psych-man
>>34888240Are we going to be more Sherlock Holmes or Shawn Spencer?
>>34890996I told you, we're gonna be the catch.Besides, we're exactly what Shawn spencer pretended to be.
>>34890996we're gonna be Question's sidekick/protege
I still vote we go down the tech or tech Mage route for this guy.
>>34891386What is the purpose of anglets?
>>34891702Tech Mage sounds good. Equipment that runs off our mana.
>>34892926Um... The housing and livelihood of a community of Frenchmen?
>>34893012You fail. Its a Question quote manTheir purpose is sinister
>>34893102That's aglets. Anglet is, as the aforementioned anon said, a town in France.
>>34893208Oh I can't spellFuck
May as well continue pushing this thread.
Any idea when he will be back?
>>34896286He just said "tonight"
>>34896369That should have been several hours sooner, but I was caught in traffic. Apologies.Just a moment and I'll get us up and running.
>>34896369Wish we knew what his time zone is.Maybe he takes after the real humble.Let's hope not.
>>34896428GET A TWITTER! ALSO HELLO!
>>34896428Is Sammich girl Molly?
>>34896428Oh, shit.Speak of the devil and he shall appear.
>>34896428My words have POWER!!
>>34896466Ok.Is she deadpool's daughter?Cause she really seems like it.Can deadpool HAVE children?
>>34896466I second the fort.
>>34896507No shes a super strong mutant from I think LAAlso she always has a silly hat on which is why I think its her
>>34896541We should make a fort with her.
>>34896775I vote pirate fort
That's clearly three votes for fort.
Hell four now.
>>34896832make that five
"Cain Marko.The Juggernaut." That sounds more like a five on Gar's arbitrary disaster scale. Maybe five and a half. "Former professional criminal, current soldier of fortune.""What's the difference?" Vic asks; this earns him a less than amused stare from Jinx. "Intent. As of late he's been trying to stay out of jail, at the least... I don't have the details, so don't ask why." Spider-Man looks a little ruffled. And he's actually in his outfit this time - the last one he wore, the one with the open-mouthed mask. "So you think there's going to be trouble?" You mumble."No, I just put the suit on because MJ likes it.""...I... don't need to know about your love life-""There's going to be trouble, but he might not be the one starting it. Until we're sure that he's out of town, I'm stepping up patrol duty." They have patrol duty here? "One team will go out at a time twice daily, and do a surface scan of the city. If you see anything suspicious, radio back. If you see Marko, then don't engage him. Just keep an eye on him from a distance. The more subtle you can be, the better.""And if he starts trouble?" "Then we have all the not-subtle we need in the gym." He smirks. "You're on patrol tonight.""Dude!" Gar bursts out. "We were the ones that found him!" "We assigned slots randomly. Relax - you should be in by ten." Jump City at night. This will be interesting. Especially because you can't fly. Hell, you can't even drive a stick, and your legs still hurt from this morning!==You have a few hours before patrol. What do you do?>A - Take this opportunity to ask Jinx about magic.>B - Risk a little info overload and try to figure out where Marko's going to be.>C - Rest and get something for your aching legs.
>>34896466Yes. The fish hat didn't give it away? I mean, look at that thing. That is a distinctive freaking hat. Pirate forts may occur later during a free action. After you get to know her.
>>34896889>ASecondary - Fort.
>>34896889>Talk to Raven, see if she can help us when others go flying
>>34896915I knew it!>>34896889>C - Rest and get something for your aching legs.
>>34896889>C - Rest and get something for your aching legs.
>>34896889>>B - Risk a little info overload and try to figure out where Marko's going to be.
>>34896889>>A - Take this opportunity to ask Jinx about magic.

>>34896889>A - Take this opportunity to ask Jinx about magic.>>34896915 I'm holding you to that. The fort is going to happen.
>>34896915Has she beaten the Punisher yet? How about Wolverine, Cap America, and Iron Man?>>34897007Please I'm a fortfag
>>34897007It's less Raven and more I don't want to get left behind.
>>34897007Personally I just want magic.And she seems like the best resource for that.
>>34897007Not a Jinx fag (yet) Just wana learn magics.
>>34897077I doubt he's gonna make Jinx like she was in the other thread, I have a feeling there's gonna be some fighting over who our guy hooks up with this time
>>34897132Or he could kill them off to head off the waifu war
>>34897150That's a tad extreme, don't you think?
>>34896889>A - Take this opportunity to ask Jinx about magic.At least we get to sit.
>>34897181Didn't stop that from happening twice in (real)Humble's quest.
"Hey, Jinx?""Yeah, Willy?" You try not to flinch at that. You've always hated it when people called you that."Look... my powers are based in magic...""And?""And I was hoping that you could give me some kind of training as to how to handle this. Maybe I could-""Whoa whoa whoa! Okay, let's be up front about this. You've got a danger sense, and some kind of crazy linking-things-up sense, right?""...that's... yeah, that's accurate.""That's order magic. I'm a chaos mage. You work with patterns, I break `em down." "But you have to know something about the pattern to break it, don't you?""Hell no. Half the time when I hex something, I have no idea what's going to happen." Well, that bites. Before you can voice your disappointment, she charges on. "But I CAN help you study this stuff. I have a pretty awesome little reference collection put together, and we might be able to convince the other magic-types around here to share what they've got." You let out a breath you didn't quite realize you were holding. "Thanks.""Don't mention it. Now..." She scoots into her room, picking through a pile of books on her desk. "...We can start you out with Hoyle's Book of Games.""What.""Hey, Eddie Hoyle was one of the greatest mages the world's ever known. The old editions of the Book had hidden cyphers with all kinds of magic info in them.""...and you have one?""No. I wouldn't know how to decode one, anyway. I have... this." She holds up a three-ring binder. "It's a bunch of what's been decrypted from the older volumes. Not all of it, I'm sure - but consider it a good primer." "Where did you get this?" You start leafing through."Ah - one condition on lending that to you. You never ask that question." Her smile disappears, and>DANGER>CLASS MILD BUT RISING"Got it." The alarms in your head silence again. There's probably a proverb somewhere about not messing with wizards, but you can't think of it.===(CONTINUED)
>>34897218Murder's pretty illegal. Doesn't he know that?
>>34897301A magician never reveals their tricks.There's your proverb.
>>34897301>"That's order magic. Hype
It's twenty minutes before you have to go on patrol. You've been reading all afternoon, and stretching out slowly. You're still in less than prime condition, but you should be able to walk around without getting a cramp, and you're starting to get a vague idea about how this magic thing works. You're trying not to use your intuition on it for now - that would make it a lot easier, but you've got a deadline to keep.==When the time comes, you meet your team in the foyer. Vic glances between all of you. "Alright. We've got three of us with a way to get around fast, and three that don't. Star, you can carry someone-""Yes! Readily!" "Gar can do the same in pterodactyl form, and I've got my baby.""...You finished it?" "Hell no. But it runs, and it's street legal." He gestures at you. "Since it's your first time on patrol, I guess we should let you pick first.">A - Ride with Vic>B - Fly with Starfire>C - Dinosaurs are cool.
>>34897458>A - Ride with VicBecause Cy is awesome also because we can ask him to teach us how to drive. Wait no forget that we'd probably have a seizure trying to

The door shuts with a soft CHUNK, and you reach for the seat belt - only to realize that it's a four-point safety harness. Annoying, but not especially hard to figure out. "So what... is this, anyway?""What, you mean make and model, or-""Yeah!" The engine thrumms softly as it slips out of the garage; it's a four-door model with a spacious backseat - although at present there isn't actually a seat there. The new parts are all gleaming white and blue, but there's large portions of the dash that are unfinished grays and reds and maroons - temporary instruments, you guess."She's an `01 Orbital chassis. The body's mostly self-fabricated. I dropped in a dual-turbo V8, a dual-clutch tranny, and-"The radio buzzes.>"Testing?"It's Jubilee."Hey, Jube. We got you.">"Okay, awesome. So what's our route?""You guys circle the perimeter of the city. Gar, go north. Star, go south. We can't hit everywhere, but we can get a good cross-section of everything." He glances over at you. "Speaking of, we've got a couple routes we can take. You want to head through Chinatown, or Cannery Row?" Both are fairly seedy, both covered with a thin veneer of friendliness for tourists.>A - Warehouses and waterfronts? Sounds about right.>B - Might as well check Chinatown.
>>34897898>A - Warehouses and waterfronts? Sounds about right.
>>34897898>B - Might as well check Chinatown.Only if we make some big trouble in little China comments
>>34897898>A - Warehouses and waterfronts? Sounds about right
>>34897898>B - Might as well check Chinatown.You see warehouses is the obvious answer which is exactly why we shouldn't go there
>>34897898>B - Might as well check ChinatownFuck yeah I could go for some mu-shu anything
>>34897898>B - Might as well check Chinatown.Order some take-out on the way.
>>34897962Yep.We don't actually want to find him.That'd be pretty stupid...
>>34898081Also if he wanted to stay out of jail why would he be skulking around warehouses at night? That's some suspect shit Anon that's bound to draw some attention
>>34898114Hmm.You're right.Maybe we SHOULD take the warehouse route.
>>34898143Wait what? He's arguing against the warehouses
>>34898211And I'm arguing against searching for trouble if it isn't necessary.
>>34897898>A - Warehouses and waterfronts? Sounds about right.If the Dresden Files have taught me anything, it's that bad shit happens near industrial areas.
>>34897898>B - Might as well check Chinatown.At least we'll still be amongst civilization.
"Chinatown it is." ==Neon. That's the first thing you notice about Chinatown. Not as much as Vegas, but every business has an obnoxious neon sign. It's still early evening - they aren't even lit yet - but they're still conspicuous. The second thing you notice is that every shop is either an importer, a restaurant, or trying very hard to be ignored. Vic drives slowly - not by choice, but by necessity. Traffic is heavy, and there are pedestrians everywhere. "...alright." He pipes up after a while. "We're gonna be late meeting the others. That's cool. Not a big deal." "Maybe we could get you a jet pack...""Hell no! Do I look like Iron Man? I'm not built for aerodynamics."You lean out the window, taking stock of everything - just looking forFormahjong parlor most popular gambling game in asia triad connection backroom deal glinting that is an AK-"DOWN!" You scream, putting your head between your knees just as the explosion hits. Your danger sense flares - a constant low drone. Sitting back up, the windows aren't even cracked."...Lemme guess. Your precog thing went off?""No. I saw someone holding a gun, and it looked like things were going south.""...yeah, I'd say they went south pretty hard." The second floor windows are blown out, the paint scorched. "So... what's the protocol?""Officially, we're supposed to radio back and let Pete give us instructions. Unofficially, he's kind of encouraged us to step in if it looks like something we can handle.">A - This doesn't look like metahuman stuff. We can handle it.>B - This doesn't look like metahuman stuff. Call Pete and get the police down here, maybe handle the crowd.
>>34898571>C - Just call Pete
Also, for the anon who wanted me to get a Twitter, I now have one. @NotHumble. I'll post there before I start threads.
>>34898571>B - This doesn't look like metahuman stuff. Call Pete and get the police down here, maybe handle the crowd.I don't think we have any offensive anything

>>34898571>Write-InCall Peter, let him know what just went down, then go in using Cy for cover (we are still remarkably squishy in the meta human world)
>>34898571>B - This doesn't look like metahuman stuff. Call Pete and get the police down here, maybe handle the crowd.No. We are not made for this kind of thing.If shit goes bad before the cops get here, we can try to step in, but not until then.

Anything else?">"Just keep an eye on the crowd for anything unusual. Anyone running away without getting medical attention, that kind of thing. If there's anyone in the building still, you can help get them out.""Got it." It isn't close to safe, but if you wanted plain safety, you wouldn't have joined an academy like this, would you? You hit the street; a crowd is already gathering, and you can hear sirens approaching slowly. What do you do?>A - Priority is to observe. Watch the crowd.>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building.>C - Rescue. See if you can get upstairs.
>>34899005>A - Priority is to observe. Watch the crowd.
>>34899005>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building.Are powers are probably really good for crowd control and finding safe places for people to move
>>34899005>>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building.
>>34899055This. We need to get people to safety.
>>34899005>A - Priority is to observe. Watch the crowd.Cy's recording, and we have our detective power. We're practically made for observation.
>>34899005>>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building
>>34899005Can we have a secret criminal backstory? Because that would be fun, and it'd explain why we're so jumpy around guns.
>>34899077Our powers help us suss out danger, which would be a great help to people fleeing from a burning building during a turf war
>>34899005>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building.
>>34899005>C - Rescue. See if you can get upstairs.
>>34899121We're jumpy around guns because guns are fucking dangerous, and we don't like dying.We're a teenager.
>>34899005>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building
>>34899121I like the criminal thing. We would always know when we were being watched. Period. Best thief Ever.
>>34899241I was thinking more, "Oh, hey, I have powers. Now I don't have to live in a box anymore." It'd explain why someone who is on their way to an anxiety attack would take such a stressful job. At least he's off the streets.
>>34899241Meh, I'm not really fond of the idea. Less petty thief, more pool shark/hussler and rigger of carnival games
>>34899272Your trip's still on there. Can't be leakin the dragon conspiracy on every thread.
>>34899005MIX OF:>>A - Priority is to observe. Watch the crowd.>>B - Take command. Start trying to herd people back from the building.
>>34899319I agree. Have Cyborg do crowd control, while we do surveillance.
>>34899347...or have Cyborg with the security cam do surveillance, and the guy with precog powers and the ability to predict danger do crowd control
>>34899313That's exactly what a possibly immortal police force might say. We're on to you.
Should probably get a new thread.
The priority is to observe, and so you observe. A few people run out of the first floor business - a lunch counter, it seems - but you don't see any movement coming from the top floor.Which, really, could be for the best. After all, you - >DANGER>DANGER>DANGERYour danger sense comes on high alert again - you can actually feel the color drain from your face as Cain Marko approaches the crowd. He looks irritated - but more than that, he's gawking about as much as you are. His shoulders slump, and you hear him yell two words, barely above the din of the crowd. "The FUCK?!" He sits down on top of a disused newspaper vending machine, his mouth hanging open. >A - Just keep an eye on him.>B - Cy can keep an eye on him - you keep an eye on the building.>C - Be bold! Ask what he's doing here!
>>34899405I agree with this dude we are on page 9
>>34899371Yeah, I thought about that. Each has it's advantages.If we're watching the building, we'll catch things that Cyborg won't, but won't have footage of it.If we're more focused on the crowd, we might miss something from the building, since we're not focused on it.
>>34899408>>C - Be bold! Ask what he's doing here!
>>34899408>DCall him a faggot and tell him you fucked his mother.
>>34899408>>A - Just keep an eye on him.>shoot a message to Peter
>>34899408>>D. Do something heroic, and quit acting like a fucking pussy
>>34899408>B/OtherThings just escalated. Have Cyborg call Parker and keep an eye on him. We eye the building.
>>34899408>A - Just keep an eye on him.
>>34899408>B - Cy can keep an eye on him - you keep an eye on the building.Who's the dickheads who blew up Marko's building or job site? They're doomed I say doomed.
>>34899457Shooting a message to Peter would involve getting back in the car, where the radio is.>>34899418We're almost done for the evening. I didn't have as much time to budget to this as I expected, thanks to traffic.
>>34899408>D. Stop being a passive aggressive little shit, and help people
>>34899490Maybe then get Cy to shoot a message to peter.
>>34899490dosnt vic have a phone built into his head or something. why cant he get through to titan tower from out here?
>>34899531You're right, passive aggressive is a bit muchBy not doing anything other then sit on our asses, seems like we're at the very least being passive. He's probably not intentionally being a bitch niggah, but it's still annoying
>>34899581juggernaut gave thor a fightI think they nerfed him since then, but he's probably still at a level that even peegee would have trouble withhe's so far out of our league it's not even funny
>>34899536>Cell coverage>Chinatown>2003Spotty. At. Best. There's a reason the Titans are using direct radio communication. >>34899441You're not suicidal.>>34899464The voice in your head is right! You need to step up! Be the alpha male you always knew you could be! You need to - "Move it, kid." The firemen push by you, heading through the crowd. Well. That... that settles that?
>>34899620...who says we have to fight Juggernaut? Shit, just go help people out a burning building or do crowd control
>>34899633Okay, that solves that problem I guess.>C - Be bold! Ask what he's doing here!"Yo big juggs, what you doing here?"
>>34899659...this, because it amuses me
>>34899633>Firefighters going into the building>People have guns insideShit nigga, let's at least warn them.
>>34899633lets just keep an eye on "jugs" rather than say anything that might get our skull smashed
>>34899705oh shit, good point
>>34899705Who the fuck shoots firefighters?
>>34899705Why? Are they really going to attempt to kill the people here to help them?
>>34899789...people who don't want to get caught up with law enforcement during a deal and being questioned by police once they get to a scene?
>>34899720Yeah somebody just blew up his building? And having some teenager come and hassle you on top of knowing who you used to be might just be the straw that breaks the camels back
>>34899659Wait, did you just say that out loud? ...you did.SHIT!"...huh?" He turns to stare blankly at you, and groans. "Did... did you just call me...""Hey, c'mon, if the girls at the school had chests half as big as yours they wouldn't be glaring daggers at Peegee. But that's neither here nor there - whatchadoin' here?" OH GOD YOUR VERBAL DAM HAS BROKEN AND YOU CANNOT SHUT YOURSELF UP AND YOU ARE GOING TO DIE AND-"Well, I was supposed to be talking to some guy about a bodyguard job, but I guess he called me too late.""...bodyguard? Really? I mean, makes perfect sense. You try that thing from the Whitney Houston movie, and the bullet would just bounce off." He considers that a moment, and nods. "The Academy, huh?""...yeah.""GodDAMN. Parker's rubbing off on you hard." He tosses you a business card. "Here. Give him this... if he has any questions, it's the guy who was supposed to be paying me."==And with that, the scene closes for tonight. Join us next time for the inevitable nervous breakdown when we realize we just brassed our way through a meeting with the Juggernaut!Next thread probably tomorrow evening, 7 or 8 EST.

>>34899885Thanks for running dude.
>>34899885No wonder we wanted Parker's autograph, apparently we emulate him...
>>34899885That was magic! Thanks, NotHumble
>>34899885Thanks for running. What's Vic's reaction to what just happened?
>>34899938My pleasure! And we're just getting warmed up. Also, as a closing topic - what does William look like, anyway?
>>34899955>Will pls no
>>34899955Probably that we're more like Beast boy than he ever expected.
>>34899977Eh, about six feet tall, dark hair, brown eyes, mediocre-above average features. Lithe frame, not exactly muscled but still thin.
>>34899977Like a hardcore Mother Fucking Gangster.
>>34900000>Brown eyes Not Green?Do you even good character?
>>34899977I don't know.Hmm maybe Tall, Lean, with dark brown short cropped hair?
>>34899955My guess is a mighty Boo-yah.
>>34900016I'm going for an inconspicuous look here.
>>34899977>Short in height , short brown hair, green eyes, and average features.
>>34900054I'm down for this.Fuck being tall.
>>34899977>>34900000>>34900016>>34900021>>34900054Looks like Tall, Dark brown hair, Green eyes, Okay looking, Lean.
>>34900078Fuck you shorty.
>>34899885I kinda want to be friends with Juggernaut. He seems like a bro.
Side question: how old are we?And what is our last name?
>>34900104No idea on age... last name was moving around Tesla or... something else was it Carter? Call sign was Teller.
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>34900104Anything but Teller is our last name. I will fucking cut you if you suggest it.Also age Iunno1 - 162 - 173 - 18
>>34900095I'd prefer a short stack hero sir.
>>34900104We grew up on the streets, don't know our birthday or last name. Believe we are between 16-18, and we've written down the date we got our powers for a month/day.
>>34900177Quiet halfing real people are posting.
>>34900197What? We are you getting this?
>>34900213It seems like a fun bit of backstory.
>>34900213Either the first thread... or *looks at name* He's making it up.
>>34900212I'm of average height. But, I find the idea of a short stack attempting to woo Power Girl, Zatanna, or any of the girls amusing.
>>34900197Please...Please shut up.We're no super criminal. We're barely super. We're just an average teen who happened to get powers.At a county fair.
>>34900251I'd rather be some hack Magicians familiar that thinks it's people.
>>34900212Hey, I'm in favor of. Short stack hero and I'm 6'2"
>>34900296I... that would be awful. We'd just get unsummoned about half way through.>>34900309I'm 6'1. I do not understand the affection for tiny people. It's cute when it's a chick. When it's a guy it's sad.
>>34900289Exactly. We're just a schmuck. Not a super criminal, just a bro who had to do some things to get a meal and a bit of spending money, which was spent at the fair/arcade/whatever.
>>34900326We're not homeless, if that's what you're insinuating.
>>34900326I'm down for the schmuck train. Bad guy/poor me background seems overdone though.
>>34900309>>34900325What's are definition of short here?
>>34900309>>34900325>6'3" best height reporting for duty
>>34900361Anything under 5'10 is short.
>>34900359>Schmuck or shmuck in American English is a pejorative meaning one who is stupid or foolish; or an obnoxious, contemptible or detestable person. The word entered English from Yiddish (שמאָק, shmok), where it has similar pejorative meanings, but its original meaning in Yiddish is penis. Because of its vulgarity, the word is euphemized as schmoe, Why would you want this it sounds terrible
>>34900359Why, though? I have some theories on how the general populace might be dealing with the high density of metas.
>>34900378This is 4chan... we're all dicks here.
>>34900373That's about the average I think it's like 5'5" and below that short zone
>>34900380I'm reasonably sure you have theories on everything. But Titans Quest - Homeless - Homeless mutant quest - Homeless - Probably others that I can't remember right now. The no parents thing also comes up a lot.
>>34900378That's a dictionary definition.Colloquially it means an average joe.
>>34900387B-but I'm not a dick.Dicks are assholes man
>>34900326I'd rather he just be an average guy who got powers and is just trying deal with that shit.
>>34900398The average is around 5'10... so anyone under that is usually considered short just off hand.
>>34900410I'm just looking at the whole 'being a superhero' as being safer than most other professions, as far as any of it goes. Mainly because this specific powerset would otherwise have him go down a COMPLETELY different road if he just wanted to get by. There's much safer, less-stressful jobs he could easily land.
>>34900437We specifically said last thread that we DONT want to be a superhero. We just want to be more in control of our abilities.
>>34900437Our stated reason is to be productive. As in we don't want to waste these gifts and or we're crushed by crippling instances of panic when ever we head down the freeway becuase a goddamn car went by and OH GOD FUCK it could kill us if it hit.
>"I just want to do something good with my life. Something productive. I don't know what yet." Jubilee tilts her bottle of Jarritos at you in a toast.
>>34900469>>34900460Eh, maybe I'm just tired and not thinking things through. I'll let it be, however.
Let's go 5'7" in height.
>>349005085'10 or Greater. Short people got no reason to live. Or so the songs say.
>>34900508Nah I'm good but thanks for the offer
>>34900634If it's in a song it must be true.
>>34900712Indeed. I have it on good authority that he want that cake cake cake.
>>34900748Then I guess I'm hooked on a feeling that she's in love with me.
