PREVIOUS EPISODES: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost+BustersLAST EPISODE: You stole government property.- - -Sachiko and Yurei are trapped inside the containment unit.And the day had been going SO well.Pulling the tech off her is a bad idea, obviously. The only solution that has a chance of success is for someone to go in and get them out. Of course, that was, in theory, what the pair were trying to do in the first place. However, you guys are professionals…you almost feel confident enough when you say that to not have to put it in quotation marks.Sato is already pulling out machinery and hooking things up to other things. Star is pouring through the GB database, getting everything she can on how to put a person’s spirit back into their body, and containment unit excursions.Akira is talking to Kali and Kaede, politely, about what the hell happened.> Help Sato> Help Star> Help Akira> Other
>>35115208Damn, these things are never as secure as they need to be.> Help StarCentral has done this, twice. There's precedence for this.
>>35115208>Sachiko and Yurei are trapped inside the containment unit.Both best girls are trapped? Fuck.
>>35115369Damned fools, oh well hopefully a Psyker's soul is more powerful than a regular soul.In the least she could've tried to hijack a containment Molecular Destabilization Suit and gone in themselves than putting in their freaking Soul.We're not gonna make that damn mistake. We're going in there with full packs (set to a frequency that works) and oxygen tanks and pulling them out.
>>35115208>Sato is already pulling out machinery and hooking things up to other things. Might just be getting in the way.>Akira is talking to Kali and Kaede, politely, about what the hell happened.Might lose the politeness part.Helping Star it is.
>>35115208Get that shit put together, save best girl!
>>35115208>Help StarKnowledge is power!
>>35115420The original cartoon one and the Extreme Ghostbusters suit entrances seemed to differ a bit. The one Egon used actually did destabilize his molecules and required he be sucked in like a ghost. He could be in there for one hour before the effects became permanent.By the time of the ExtremeGhobusters they managed to install a special room leading to an access hatch. That one let Eduardo carry a proton pack with him, not sure if that one actually destabilized him. That one didn't seem to destabilize him, but made the journey limited by how much oxygen he could bring.I think the latter is better.
>>35115208>Help SatoGet that tech working, yo
>>35115602>>35115602The ghostbusters extreme one didn't need you to be destabilized, it just opened up a portal where solid things could be sucked in (or pulled out).When they weren't able shut the hatch door, Egon used the manual controls to shut off power to the portal (by promptly smashing it with his wrench).
You head over to Star. "Okay, so." Star says. "This is FAR from the first time something like this has happened. We have options.""Options?" You ask."We can try a Molecular Destabilization Suit, an Astral Simulacrum Projector, or a Remote Possession Avatar." Star says. "We can get one of them set up quick enough.""Alright, so what are the details?" You ask."Well, the MDS is where we dress you up in a etched out scuba suit and send you, body and soul, inside the unit. That lets you have probably the biggest host of options...but one wrong move and you're dead." Star says. "The ASP is where we...kind of do what Sachiko and Yurei did. We send your spirit into the Unit and keep your body safe out here. There's record of Still Living Spirits having special powers, as recorded when Central took on some mobsters, so you'll be safer, and maybe have superpowers...but no tech." She shrug. "And the RPA is we muck up a robot out of tech and slime and put your consciousness in it. Like that stupid movie. Only this time you'll be able to kick ass in it." She says. "We can set it up with GB tech too, and you'll be the safest...but it's still a remote connection, and all that it implies."So, got a favorite?"> "Get the suit ready."> "Hook up the projection array."> "Let's build a robot!"> Other

How do people feel about Sachiko again?I don't want to project my opinions.
>>35115980No commentary on lovelife, let's leave that for the end of the Quest. best girlShe's important as our must trusted Psyker, a Miko not tied to the PCOC, and as a potentiality to reenact the story by shooting a magic arrow at Tamamo.
>>35115808Man. Wish there were a way to take a peek inside to assess the situation.Kind of want to go with the ASP, because I have a thing for acronyms that actually spell something.Maybe go ASP/Suit and have someone monitor with a robot? Do we have the resources?
>>35115808> "Hook up the projection array."
"Get the suit ready." You say.Star smirks. "So you can charge in and rescue your lady love?" She chuckles. "You're not exactly the most subtle, you know.""Shut up." You say."Although, I have to tell you, if you're trying for the harem end with Reika, Sana, AND Sachiko...Akira and Sato will kill you before they allow it to happen." She smirks."Shut up!" You say."Alright," She prints out the schematics for the MDS. "Give this to Sato and start putting things together. Hopefully we have all the stuff that we need. Especially since we're doing this at a blind run."You snatch the paper away from Star. "Thank you."You head over to Sato and you both get started in building the suit. You really hope that you've got enough stuff to make the suit, or at the very least fake it.> Roll 1d20

>>35116184We've consistantly gotten punched right in the dick whenever we try playing things safe.
>>35116187Well, you don't have the recommended parts, you don't even have the recommended alternative parts. However, you are able to make an MDS that qualifies as functional.Barely."Well...it passes all the checks and the seals are tight." Sato sighs. "But it's..." He looks at the thing. It looks less like the schematics, and more like a robot costume from a 1940's pulp sci-fi movie. Big, bulky, possibly fragile, and NOT comfortable."Do you think we can afford to waste time building option B?" Sato asks."I dunno." You say. "Could you mock something up while someone's inside with that thing?""Maybe, but that means fewer people will be monitoring things on this side. I mean, they've got redundancies for when things go wrong now, but...they need people on the other side to make sure that they work.""Okay," Akira says, joining you two. "Short version of how this happened. Kayako's mother has been hanging out in Sachiko's dreams ever since she possessed her back when we visited her place. You know Sachiko's power increase? It's thanks to her. Kayako's mother promised Sachiko more power and knowledge, and that she would leave her alone, if she could free Kayako's true soul and let her pass on.""And Kayako found out from Yurei that the containment unit was knocked out thanks to the PKE blast that GB: LA did." Sato says. "They muck something up, go inside...""And get trapped." Akira says. "So...is this death trap plan A?""Pretty much." Sato says. "We could try and build another, but we barely had enough stuff to make this one.""Could we scrap it and try something else?" Akira asks. "Maybe, but we'd lose more time." Sato says. > "Let's go with the deathtrap. We can't afford to leave them in there any longer than they need to."> "This thing is just going to end up with another person trapped. Let's scrap it and build something else."> Other
>>35116460> "Let's go with the deathtrap. We can't afford to leave them in there any longer than they need to."
>>35116460>"Let's go with the deathtrap. We can't afford to leave them in there any longer than they need to."High risk, high reward.
>>35116460> "Let's go with the deathtrap. We can't afford to leave them in there any longer than they need to."Can the PAGAN leader(I forgot her name) write some Imperial Decrees on the suit and on paper seals for us, declaring to Heaven and Earth that we are her agent on the current plane of existence where this agent is operating, and therefore has the full protection and endorsement of the Imperial House?It may not work, but it's worth a shot.
>>35116460> "Let's go with the deathtrap. We can't afford to leave them in there any longer than they need to."In for a penny in for a pound.Let's do this.
>Kayako's mother promised Sachiko more power and knowledge, and that she would leave her alone, if she could free Kayako's true soul and let her pass onHuh, guess the allure of power speaks strongly even to Saichiko.
>>35116460Well great. Now we're stuck with a horrible death trap that will kill us the first time we get a ghost roll, and I see a lot of d6s in our future. Also d4s.
>>35116496Is there a reward though?And don't we have the astral projection thing, since Sachiko is using one?
>>35116460>Let's go with the deathtrapKICK REASON TO THE CURB!>>35116551Her name is Rei and I second this motion.
>>35116551>declaring to Heaven and Earth that we are her agent on the current plane of existenceProblem with that is the Containment unit isn't exactly heaven or earth, nor on our plane of existence.Also it would take something of extraordinary power to let any PKE even seep into the Containment unit, which is designed to hold an entire ghost dimension and what equates to the power of a god inside.
>>35116612I thought having the seals underneath the suit would let them pass through. The decree would need to be changed to also include all worlds, and it may have some effect on the conformist ghosts of Japan.
Finally made it on time. I've done a archive binge and looked at the attack plan from last week, and a thought occured to me. The Asset 4 that the enemy have to keep their phones off for, I think it's The Pulse or Kairo if we want to use the Japanese name. Basically, internet ghost, turns people into dust if they use things like cell phones, computers, and TVs. Considering the target area and their other plans, they are likely going to use it to absorb SHIT TONS of souls, then use it to power up the first Asset for Ms No Face's takeover. Got a few other thoughts as well, but that is the big one.
Divine warding against those who have assailed Japan's populace? General enough.
>>35116496"Let's go with the deathtrap." You say and you take a step forward. "We can't leave them in there for any longer than we need to.""And YOU think you're the one who's going to go inside that thing?" Akira asks."Can we not do this now, Akira?" You ask."Look, I don't want anything to happen to them, just as much as you. But what if they'r being held hostage, and the ghosts say that they won't them go unless we let everyone else go?""I wouldn't agree to something like that!" You say."Yeah, but I don't think you'd be willing to make a tough choice if you'd have to." Akira says. "Not when someone you care about is on the line.""And you would?" You snap back."Yes. Keeping that grid sealed is more important than Sachiko or Yurei, AND we're one of the few people who can help Tokyo survive the Conjunction, so WE'RE more important than they are...and if I had to pick between Sachiko and Yurei. I'd leave Yurei in there in a shot. I don't think you're capable of doing that.""I'm capable of a lot of things." You snap."As long as there aren't any names attached." Akira says."BOYS!" Star says. "Sato, why don't YOU go?""I...umm..." Sato frowns and then nods. "I can do it.""Sato, you're the only one who knows how half of this stuff works." Akria says. "We need you out here...and Daisuke..." He sighs. "Daisuke, you're not as expendable as I am.""What?""Face it. We know who people see as the leader. I fucking HATE it, but it's the truth. You are a good leader." Akira says. "I'm just a hotheaded grunt. This is too risky to risk someone like you.""Akira..." Star says, softly. "We...we need you too."> "Okay, Akira." You sigh. "You can go inside the unit."> "I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside."> "Wanna flip for it? Or Jan-ken-pon?"> Other
>>35116718Gods possibly only hold power in their dimension and on earth, in their ancestral region of worship or where people believe in them most.But since most of the ghosts in the Containment Unit are Japanese it might work. . .but then again, did we not also only put in the ghosts in there who rebelled against the gods and the greater order in the first place?
>>35116796>> "Wanna flip for it? Or Jan-ken-pon?"
>>35116796>"I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside."This is too important to not step in on.
>>35116773>PulseThat's a game over scenario.
>>35116796>"Yeah, but I don't think you'd be willing to make a tough choice if you'd have to." Akira says. "Not when someone you care about is on the line.">"As long as there aren't any names attached." Akira says.Well, he is right.>>35116858Can we word it in a way that we're not the leader though? That's already more a slap in the face than needs be.
>>35116796>"Wanna flip for it? Or Jan-ken-pon?"
>>35116796> "I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside."> Other"Akira.... I can't let you go. I'm the rookie, remember? That means it's my job to do the extremely dangerous and stupid things. You've been at this longer than me, and you can't replace experience.
>>35116796> "I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside."Besides, if anyone tries to get a leg up on us... We need our soldier.
>>35116878Maybe something like "my choice led to this, so it's my responsibility?"
Akira's logic is odd.The only reason we are going in there is because we care about both Saichiko and Yurei. This is a purely quest of personal interest to us.If he really cared about the Grid security, he would be advocating to just leave Saichiko and Yurei inside entirely while we focus on the bigger things.I mean, it's not like they could die in there..."Akira, if all you care about is the Grid Security then that's PROOF we're the ones who should go, because that's the only reason we are going.We care about Saichiko and Yurei. YOU stay out here and make sure the Grid doesn't leak."
>>35116796> "I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside."A true leader LEADS, and this is some dangerous shit, Daisuke isn't the type to just sit back when this kind of shit is going down-besides, best girl needs saving!
>>35116944I'd second this.Akira needs to focus on keeping everything in. How can he do that if he's inside and not outside?
>>35116864And why I said it might be important. If it's full strength, she could very easily take the entirety of Tokyo before putting up the bubble and get a lot more souls than the other three avatars combines. Besides, for all this talk of 4 being a deadly number, it's odd that we didn't find a 4th avatar. On the plus side, it probably lacks a suitable ghost to take on it's story so we might not have to deal with a full power Kairo.
>>35116925>>35116944>>35116981these. If Akira cares so about Grid security, then that's proof he should be out here making sure it stay secure.
Let's also not forget that Yurei might be a factor in Akira's decision.
>>35116981I am ok with this. One outside, one inside. If any leak out, snatch them up before they escape. Shouldn't be hard.
>>35116796> "Okay, Akira." You sigh. "You can go inside the unit."He's expendable and replaceable. Let him get his death wish on.
>>35116925>>35116981I like these. Seconding.
>>35117011Well then we'll beat him with logic and see if he'll save his face and shut his mouth or show how much of a hypocrite he really is.>>35117031There really will be only two points of leakage, opening the unit to let us in, and opening it to let us (and hopefully Saichiko and Yurei) out.
Wait, didn't we place Kayako, and each aspect of Oiwa, in their own segregated containment units?I remember planning to do that at least.
>>35117074And the first opening will be safer because we can safely close the hatch to the first entry room.>>35117136Not enough money for multiple containment units, or maybe too much red-tape or something, sadly.
>>35116925>"I'm sorry Akira," You say. "If I'm the leader then I'M making this call. I'm going inside." Then you look at your upset partner. "Akira.... I can't let you go. I'm the rookie, remember? That means it's my job to do the extremely dangerous and stupid things. You've been at this longer than me, and you can't replace experience. Also, Star and Sato are going to be running upkeep on me. We're going to need someone to make sure that nothing else escapes. That's your job."Akira rolls his eyes. "Sure. Fine."You're suited up. It's very uncomfortable, hot, and it pinches in all the wrong places. "Isn't there supposed to be an airlock?" You ask."That's for Central's big unit." Star says. "We're going to have to basically destabilize you, and then incarcerate you.""Wait, you're going to BUST me?" You ask."To get you in, yes." Sato says. "Now. You see these little spheres?" He attaches a few things that look like GB-Tech versions of those little glowy-flashlight balls that are covered with clear soft rubber, the kind that people toss to each other during raves."Yeah?""You hand one of them to Yurei and Sachiko." Sato says. "They hold onto it for four seconds straight. And that's long enough for me to get a lock on them in the unit, separate their PKE signatures, and withdraw them out and back into Sachiko's body and Yurei's Chyme. I think.""You THINK?" You ask."Going at a blitz pace, remember?" Sato says. "Central's done this before, don't worry!""Ugh, and how do I get out?" You ask."When we put you in, there should be a zone. You get back to the zone, and we can pull you out." Star says."A 'zone'?" You ask."Things inside the unit are endlessly variable, we have NO idea what it's going to look like." Star says. "So 'zone' is the best I can do. It's also why we need Akira playing goalie, because yes, as long as you're in there, the containment unit will have a tiny, tiny, crack in it."(cont)
>we got a smaller Containment UnitDamn, guess they didn't expect all the traffic we were gonna see in Tokyo.Note to self after the bloody moons, we need to push for a major upgrade.>and withdraw them out and back into Sachiko's body and Yurei's Chyme. I think.Why do I have a feeling where that could possibly lead, and why do I like it
>>35117519>Yurei in Sachiko's body>Sachiko in the chymeThis sounds fun.We can have some fun, right Ghostmaster? Just a bit?
>>35117519I bet the other fairly new branches are experiencing shortsighted difficulties too, since we all started small funding and low equipment for new ventures. Next branch no matter where it is they better give them the complete works, even if its kansas or the sahara desert.
>>35117354"Great." You sigh. "Alright, let's do this.""Step into this circle." Sato says."Is that an Sega Activator?" You ask. "Where did we get one of those?""You'd be surprised how many old video game peripherals we have." Sato says. "Or how useful that old junk is." "They're VINTAGE!" Star huffs.You stand in the Activator and there's a humming and a few lights.Then every part of you REALLY hurts for a second and your liver is very thirsty, while your kidneys have a headache.Then you're standing next to a cherry blossom tree in a black and white world.You look around. The world is bereft of color, save for the tree that you're standing next to. It's blossoms are a normal pinkish white, but in this world it makes a statement.That must be the marker of the 'breach zone.'You look around. There's not much to see, long rolling plains of grey grass, and the occasional tree with grey leaves.No wind. No sound, save your breathing inside the suit. No real sign of life.With two exceptions.Across the field, you see a large stone tower. It looks like something out of a fantasy movie. A circular building made out of grey stones, it's very very wide. Probably the size of a football stadium, and about as tall as a regular sized building in downtown. You can hear and see activity coming from it.The other, sitting across from the Tower, is a large palace. You...you actually recognize it. It's a perfect replica of the palace that was used in Kurosawa's 'Throne of Blood.'You also notice that there's signs of activity there as well.As long as you don't actively bump into anyone, or talk to anyone, you're slightly invisible...but don't push it.> Go to the tower.> Go to the palace.> Other
>>35117814Tower is probably Yurei.Palace is Sachiko.
>>35117814> Go to the tower.
>>35117814>Go to the tower.
>>35117814> OtherMaybe a quick equipment check? PKE meters, Goggles, the Dimensional Compensators on our packs.Especially since we're in the containment world, our equipment might not work right. Everything could be backwards, so let's see if reversing the frequencies makes stuff work.Then maybe we can use the PKE meter which has already locked on Yurei to get a general location of her.
>>35117814>Go to the towerYes, let us go to the phallic object
>>35117814> Go to the palace.
>>35117814>>35117902This. Buff up, first.Then go to the Tower.
>>35117902If we ever need to fight we could try to reverse the polarity of our Proton Packs from positive to negative to fire a negative stream instead of a positive stream.Kind of like how effective one of the aspects of Kayako was when she fired a red proton stream at our face that burnt our eyebrows off.
>>35117902let's make sure our gear actually works.
>>35117619See, I'm fuzzy on this. It was mentioned before, but not explained; why doesn't Melnitz allow franchise cash outside of Central? Wouldn't the funding help avoid stuff like this?
>>35118091For as much as we care for world saftey, GB is inherently a business oriented company run by perhaps some of the most greediest individuals in existence.My guess is they want the Branches to prove they're both self-sustainable and profitable before they invest more heavy funding.Maybe after we hold off the Bloody Moons they'll have more faith in us. The branch that recently stopped the thing that unleashed the PKE wave probably got some good bonuses from Central.
>>35117814Tower. Yurei is important, same with Sachiko, but my concern is her name that starts with a K and the fact she is a cell phone ghost.Guys, what if Yurei is Kairo?
>>35118190>It was Yurei all alongHOLY SHIT
>>35117902Switch the polarityReverse the input-output chambersFlip the nobly thingy in the other direction
>>35118190Oh my god.
>>35118190>Cell phone.>Tower.Well, the thought had crossed my mind that she'd be used against us. Can't be the only one. Still could be wrong.
>>35118371Daisuke can put the pieces together, right?We can prevent Yurei from being used against us, right?
Find Sachiko first, I'd say. Being a former possessed of Kayako, we'll find them both together and...No, wait. Yurei might actually be more vulnerable than Sachiko.
>>35118443Really, they're both vulnerable.
>>35118371Indeed, but the fact she matches with the story so well could just make her a REALLY good canidate to be the avatar of The Pulse. Though, with all we've done, it might actually help us there. We've done a lot of good, helped her build good memories, and made it so she's not lonely; which is the main catalyst for The Pulse.Hell, maybe we could subvert the pulse? Less lonlyness, more togetherness and force feed the positive energy into Madam No Face? After all, while the pardon might weaken her, I don't think it will be that easy either.
>>35117902You check your equipment as you hike to the tower. PKE Meter, check. Pack compensators, check. Goggles, check.You try to see if you can pick up Yurei's signal, but it's like trying to pick out one voice in a very loud crowd. You'd have to get closer.The tower doesn't really have an entrance, it just has a large archway that leads to the inside of the tower.The tower turns out to just be a hollow shell. The wall is all there is. The inside of the tower, is filled with ghosts.Small clumps of ghosts are talking to each other, there's a ring of ghosts watching two other ghosts fight, and it seems that there's a bunch of ghosts leaning against the inner wall of the tower and smoking.It looks like a prison yard. Only, you don't recognize some of the ghosts here. Oh, most of them you do. Maid ghosts, and poltergeists and all those small jobs, and there's that dessert ghost from the love hotel.But you don't recognize some of these others. Ghosts wearing yellow clothing, ghosts with deer heads, or tribal masks, or...Holy shit, that's the Grundel.You recognize THAT guy from the database. He's talking to a Maid ghost...and is he flirting with her? Ughh...Then you see it. A ghost walks out from a glowing part of the inner wall, a ghost dressed in celtic leathers, and the dessert ghost then walks into the wall and disappears.This IS a prison yard...one that's connected to the other containment units. Before you panic, you do notice one thing that's a little reassuring, none of the Foreign Ghosts are able to leave the tower. You see one of them leaning against the open space of the tower's entrance. Your ghosts, seem to be free to walk to the palace or back. > Head to the palace.> Lurk around the Tower Yard and see if you can find anyone here.> Try to find a ghost on its own, and grab them and GET some answers.> Other
>>35118472As vulnerable as ghosts are in the Ghost world, good news is there isn't anyway death can get to them in here. Rules seem to be in place here that prevent other bigger ghosts from just eating up all the smaller ghosts, otherwise someone like Fenris would've swallowed all the ghosts in Central's unit.Doesn't mean they can't be caught or coerced by other unsavory means.
>>35118553Yurei is vulnerable to becoming a Pulse ghost, which basically is more of an epidemic than a haunting, and Sachiko is vulnerable to becoming that one Corpse Party ghost.Maybe not here, maybe not now, but why take that fucking risk?
>>35118503> Lurk around the Tower Yard and see if you can find anyone here.
>>35118392Depends on how she reacts when she recovers her memory. If she recovers her memory.>>35118443Or they can be like Oiwa's Hell Hounds. Can't really help it, it's going to happen anyway. Beat the big bad and save them later.>>35118500Kill the ill with kindness. It's never fatal to be humanitarian. Might hurt like a bitch, though.>>35118503> Lurk around the Tower Yard and see if you can find anyone here.
>>35118503>Other"None of you would have happened to see a cute girl in a white kimono, would you? Recently got in, maybe a few hours ago?
>>35118503>Head to the palace.Might as well aim for the top.
>>35118503> Head to the palace.And if we see someone we know, maybe we can talk to them.
>>35116796>"Okay, Akira." You sigh. "You can go inside the unit."
>>35118607In theory if we wanted them to be safe that type of turning the best place to keep them would be in here where goes don't seem to be able to gobble each other up. . .but that presents it's own difficulties.Hell, if we were really worried about them turning we could keep them in an individual trap, but fat lot of good that will do for anybody anywhere.Better figure out a way to not let that happen once we get topside.
>>35118640It certainly would be better than nothing and even if it only prevents oiwa from getting so many souls, it could be a major tide turner. We should also get some holy water/good slime mix for when the fire robe tries to set the palace on fire.>Lurk around the Tower.Just long enough to see if there is anything we can gleen, then to the palace. Last thing we want is to attract attention.

Rolled 1 (1d20)>>35118987A ghost roll in the ghost world?what if 4's are good and 3's are bad here?
>>35119014It's still a scary thought, though.
>>35119014Just my two bits but the PCOC seem to be bound by red tape both the literal and figurative senses, the registration spell, and the Kimono strings from Saichiko's dream and the real thing.The ghosts in pulse used a lot of red tape too and where tech oriented.
I'm very sorry, but outside factors are requiring me to step away from the game for the moment. I'll try to get back in at least two hours.That was a good roll, don't worry.Also, don't worry, Kairo is not going to be used in this quest.Again, apologies, I'll try to return later.
>>35119313Okay, we'll keep the thread bumped till then Ghostmaster.
>>35119313No worries, you gotta do what you gotta do. We'll be waiting when you get back.
>>35119313>Kairo is not going to be used in this quest.Damn, just when we thought we were being clever...
>>35119437The trick to being clever in GB quest is to not actually try to be clever.The last time we did something smart was purely per accident.
>>35119437ahh well, probably better that way. I think that would be a press x not to gib the country. Still.. maybe Yurei can phone battle Mimiko? Become the Kami of phones or something.
>>35119498There are only 3 ways we'll be able to make Yurei powerful:Belief/WorshipHave her absorb other ghostsMagical artifactsIf we want to engineer a god, we'll have to go through all the loops and holes the Gozerian cult and Shandor had to go through.
Bump in the Night.
A tall lanky ghost, of a man wearing a hyena pelt over his head walks up next to you. He's acting casual, but you can hear him quietly say."Hosh kerel. Pike ovah that gully or you gon find yah late and totally miff."You pause. Okay, you know that in the Ghostworld a light case of glossic crossover is not unheard of. So, even though he probably wasn't speaking Japanese, you still understood him.That being said, you have NO goddamn clue WHAT he was saying.He gestures to an empty piece of wall. Ah, he wants to talk to you alone.You calmly head over to the wall, and he leans against it. It looks like he's picking insects out of his pelt."Wonderin' how I can see you?" He asks with a chuckle.You say nothing."Hmph, you here for the stukkie that the toff's tannies junked here?" He says. "Maybe I know a things or two on where the condai threw her."Again, you have no goddamn idea what this ghost is saying.(cont)
>>35121101I think he is from south africa
>>35121101Dammit Daisuke this is no time not to understand what he is saying when we your disembodied patrons do!
>>35121101He rolls his eyes. "She ain't here mate. She got moved on. We don't lets those that be here, with you, be here. Catch? They lock 'em up special, different Tower. Solitary. All the ones who don't have a hate for you. That "Okay...you THINK this guy is saying that Yurei got moved to another Tower yard, where the ghosts keep all the ones who don't 'fit in' with the general public.You lick your lips and quietly mumble. "The other one?""Man, I dunno. All I hear is big peher at the house, and then BAM, they toss in tha stukkie and tell us to put her on ice." Heyna shrugs."Why help me?" You ask. This could be a trap."Tch, I ain't helpin. I'm just letting you know, what I know. That way, next time one of the spiders slink through, they know that I did a solid, and maybe they let me creep through crack with them." He shrugs. "S'all there is to know."Hyena walks away from the position.So, Yurei isn't in this Tower, and Sachiko's probably in the mansion. Damn.> Go through the portal wall in the Tower. Maybe you can shuffle through the Towers and find the Prison inside the Prison.> Pull your wand and start demanding some answers.> Be a bit more subtle, grab a weaker looking ghost and try to quietly get some answers.> Okay, if they've just locked Yurei up, then that means she's in a bad place, but Sachiko's probably in a lot more pressing danger. Leave and go to the Mansion.> Other
>>35121317> Okay, if they've just locked Yurei up, then that means she's in a bad place, but Sachiko's probably in a lot more pressing danger. Leave and go to the Mansion.
>>35121317Normally I'd advocate freeing Sachiko first, but the Hyena implied there is more than one ghost here that is friendly towards us and they're all locked up in the same place.So maybe we do a jailbreak and then breakout Sachiko with a small army.
>>35121317>Go get SachikoGet sum FIYAPOWAH>Hyena doing a solid so Anansi will give him a breakYeah, that'll work until Anansi decides he wants to make a story out of you again and lets the Ghostbusters catch you.
>>35121101>CondaiConductor?Hmm, this could be like that analog of the great Mandala of New York, some ghosts managing and coordinating other ghosts, moving them and sometimes keeping them where they need to be.>>35121317>OtherIs there any chance we can still talk to the Hyena guy really quick?Just ask his name so whichever branch busted him could let him out their end, as well as ask him about Big Peher, and if he is the Condai.
>>35121385Okay yeah that makes sense, changing my vote to this
>>35121317>They lock 'em up special, different Tower. Solitary. All the ones who don't have a hate for you. ThatLet's find that tower, then. Kayako might be there.
>>35121317>Go through the portal wall in the Tower. Maybe you can shuffle through the Towers and find the Prison inside the Prison.Prison break time? Prison break time!
>>35121317>>35121385>So maybe we do a jailbreakI like this plan!
>>35121418I think she's way too powerful to be locked up like that. I don't know, I can't help but think the living should be of greater priority than the dead.
>>35121419>>35121418>>35121385Let's just hope the solitary tower contains only the ghosts who are in support of GB, and not actual crazies or psychopaths among whatever ghost society has developed here.Need to figure out how the various containment units have been linked, this is bad. . .if the containment units have a dimensional breeches to each other, it could lead to dimensional breeches elsewhere. . .meaning escape and potential return to earth.
>>35121317>Go through the portal wall in the Tower. Maybe you can shuffle through the Towers and find the Prison inside the Prison.Like the guy said, all of the ghosts here are the ones that hate the Ghostbusters. He's only helping because he figures that turning informant might get him in good with Anansi.Whoever we grab is likely to raise an alarm as soon as we let them go, or lead us into a trap, unless we provide them with something.
>>35121317>Okay, if they've just locked Yurei up, then that means she's in a bad place, but Sachiko's probably in a lot more pressing danger. Leave and go to the Mansion.Sachiko's soul is that of a living person. She can be killed, right? So let's make sure that we save her first, since Yurei can't be killed by other ghosts in here.
>>35121473The ghosts from the other places seem to be confined to that strange tower when "visiting" other places. Less holes being created to each other, more a central hub is being developed.That's still kind of disturbing. It'd mean they'd be able to communicate and coordinate, and that the tower would be the most dangerous place of all.
>>35121500>She can be killed, right?Not in here she can't. She's not even in her body.
>>35121500>>35121547If you die in the Matrix, you die for real. Also, a body without a soul is not doing so hot.
>>35121500>Yurei can't be killed by other ghosts in here.After all this talk about feeding weaker ghosts to stronger ghosts, I'm not sure that's a safe assumption.
>>35121388I like Hyena. I ain't trusting him enough to free him, but I like him.Maybe we can send in a thank you package or something.
>>35121478>he figures that turning informant might get him in good with Anansi.Maybe that's something we should consider. Look for ghosts who are willing to turn CI, and release them with a tracking collar.They do enough good work, and they get released.The original Ghostbusters did it, so there's precedent.
>>35121547Hell, I'd wager that essentially as a disembodied soul given ethereal form like the rest, many of the rules that apply to ghosts apply to her right now.>>35121590If it were that easy, Kayako would've died the first time she reenacted her suicide.A body without a soul isn't good, but that's what Saichiko is right now. Our job here is to get it back.Thankfully, nothing leaves or enters the containment unit. Not even death itself.>>35121592But that seems disrpoven by the fact that it hasn't happened already.Surely by now the biggest fish would've eaten all the others and essentially we'd have one coalesced being in a contianment unit we'd be feeding, but here they've even developed some sort of prison system where they detain those who don't get along and probably a hierarchy of sorts too.
>>35121628That might be something for the PAGAN group to work on. They are trained now, so maybe in their spare time they can do "expeditions" and work on letting good spirits move on.
>>35121378>>35121500Two official votes for going for Sachiko first.>>35121478>>35121419Two for Portal HopThere are some unclear votes both ways, but I'm sensing a split.
>>35121679What exactly does Portal Hop entail us doing compared to our other options?
>>35121679>>35121378I changed my vote to portal hop >>35121403
>>35121704It means jumping through a random portal, hoping you'll end up where you want to go.As opposed to trying to force some answers or getting a guide, publicly or privately. Heyna has moved on, he is NOT going to help you further. Not without you forcing him to. Any more and he risks himself, and well...he's not putting anyone else before himself.
>>35121679Sachiko first, I think.
>>35121662No, I mean bringing ghosts willing to work for us out of the Containment Unit, treat them like criminals with a chance for parole, instead of like vermin and filth that we keep contained inside of a concentration camp, waiting for us to get the furnaces up and running.Sure, they're a threat to humans and society if they were free, but that doesn't change the fact that if the Ghostbusters had the technology and the resources available, the Containment Unit would immediately become the Dispersal Unit.
>>35121679I feel like Yurei is "safe" where she is now, while Sachiko very much isn't.Like she has to deal with Kayako, Kayako's mother, and probably the other two aspects of Oiwa we captured.
>>35121731You walk up to the glowing wall, and put your hand on it. It feels tingly, and slightly gelatinous. It would be very easy to just push through and walk forward.So you do.> Roll 4d6, highest roll plays

>>35121862> Do another circuit of this yard. Maybe you'll get lucky again.
>>35121862>Hop back into the portal and try again.I doubt we'll get much of value here, let's try someplace else.
>>35121862>Do another circuit of this yardAnnouncing that we're a Ghostbuster would be like jumping in a sharktank covered in meat.
>>35121862> Grab a hostage/guide, hopefully quietly.Just politely try to get directions. British people are polite, right?
>>35121760>but that doesn't change the fact that if the Ghostbusters had the technology and the resources available,We don't though, and we likely never will for any significant number.Not only would it be a logistical nightmare to both track and overwatch so many ghosts capable of going places few humans could follow, but any such system could easily be broken and corrupted either by trickery or force.We don't just keep them in there because they are a threat, we keep them in there because they are safe in here as well. Many ghosts we capture are naturally a danger to themselves or others, not because of their actions, but by nature, such as some the Aspects of Oiwa.The only ghosts even in here in the first place are the ones who are clearly such a threat and are definitively unable to act peaceably such as the "quiet ones" we leave alone.>waiting for us to get the furnaces up and running.Besides the obvious reference, if we did figure out a way to manually and permanently dissipate their ethereal form, we would be replicating the same process that we've seen happens when they pass on. We've seen that souls pass on and leave behind all their ties to this world, physical or ethreal. The lights are here one moment, the next, gone without a trace.But as we cannot even do that, all we can do is contain them, and we'll be sure to let them out once Judgement day comes and trumpets sound.
>>35121862>Hop back into the portal and try again.Since ghosts form other Containment Units can only stay within these towers, the lockdown for snitches is going to be one of these towers, not outside of them.So they should be readily apparent.And Hyena was able to see us; what's to keep someone else, who isn't angling for CI status, to see us and raise the alarm?
>>35121862>you think you're in GB: London's Containment Space.If only Central didn't have Sherlock Holmes.> Do another circuit of this yard. Maybe you'll get lucky again.
>>35121876>>35121881>>35122152You carefully walk around the yard. Keeping well out of other people's way, and your ears as open as they can be, with your head already being in a bubble.> Roll 1d20
>>35121921>The only ghosts even in here in the first place are the ones who are clearly such a threat and are definitively unable to act peaceablyThat wouldn't explain the entire tower devoted to ghost snitches who worked for or are sympathetic towards the Ghostbusters.As for the tracking collars, we can get the designs from Central, and it wasn't a particularly difficult or expensive piece of equipment. And the original Ghostbusters did treat Shifter in the manner of a CI, and gave him his freedom even though he had been busted before.

>>35122343>>35122323>>35122313Okay, we've got some options, there's a lonely looking girl dressed in modern clothing. She's alone and no-one's near her.There's a guy smoking against the wall near the portal. He's a malformed ghost, every part of him looks wrinkled, saggy, and old.Then there's a small kid, sitting by himself, by the entrance. He's leaning against the wall, so he's not from here. He looks American, you think.Those are the most obvious targets.Also, there's your approach. You can go in and boldly grab the ghost, hostage style. You can try for the subtle 'don't turn around' method as you poke your neutrino wand into their back, or you can try the diplomatic route and just talk to them.

>>35122398>Go for the woman>> Be diplomaticI see no reason why we can't be friendly. And on that note, night GhostMaster, wish I could stay but time and morning lectures wait for no man. Can't wait to see how this all plays out in the archives!
>>35122225One ghost here and there perhaps, and even then there is a risk.Again, it isn't that the collars are expensive it's that the risk it presents are. How can we be sure they aren't taken off by someone else such as the various Yakuza or others who want to take em? Who and how will we ensure the tracking of so many ghost.Instead of freeing them into the human world and trying to track them in the human world, perhaps we could at least move them to the Ghost World with good behavior? Where they do have organized society and systems of justice?Buster was another friendly Ghost to the Ghostbusters who had taken up several different jobs in the ghost world, most notably as tooth fairy, but evidently got busted by their version of the police after he tried to perform illegal dentistry.At least by reintegrating them back into Ghost Society and the ghost world they have less of a chance of harming people, even unwittingly. And we can rely on their civil authority to keep them in check than putting the burden of policing them all when we should be focusing on the most deadly.
>>35122398>Go for the man>Be subtleLooks foul and feels fair? We ARE in Europe right now...
>>35122452In fact if we can somehow get in contact with the Peoplebusters, we can perform a sort of "prisoner exchange".We give them the ghosts who have been helping us and have had good behavior, they give back the various human interlopers or cultists who invaded the underworld and have been of service to them. People and ghosts get put back into their respective realms.Problem is in both encounters the PB and GB haven't seen eye to eye.

>>35122926 I'm sorry to end it early, but the fact that you guys decided to kick the hornet's nest kind of killed most of the stealth plots I had planned.Taking the hostage wasn't the bad idea, but what made you guys think that a prisoner would be willing to talk in a friendly manner to a lone guard?Anyway, I'll figure out how the fight is going to work and we'll pick up from there. NEXT EPISODETHURSDAY, OCTOBER 2ND, 3-5PM PST
>>35122926Was going for Yurei first the trap option?
>>35122926I really don't think we understanding how to weigh risks in this quest.Like I do not see this as a logical chain of events from our actions.
>>35122997Are we going to get a breather episode after this?
>>35122926If we selected ASP mode, we could've Human Torched this pooch. Time to figure out how we gonna get our Flame On.
>>35122997I didn't really think that they would have had the ability to control where we get directed.Also, I'm not really sure how effective threatening anyone would be, since we can't kill them, and there's a lot more of them than there are us.
>>35123039I mean shit, that's the opposite of how a ghostbuster is supposed to operate on sheer principle. We're supposed to act in large groups taking down singular tagets, one at a time in coordination.Not one man hero stunts, at best that's stealth and recon which is what we were supposed to do, NOT engage them in any direct way whatsoever.
>>35123078I guess personally I figured that any response to a threat would be definitely met with derisive laughter and violence.While trying to be diplomatic would only PROBABLY be met with that.
>>35122997I don't get how we kicked the Hornet's Nest. We asked one ghost, ONE GHOST, then suddenly we're fighting Fenrir. That's kind of a huge disconnection there. It's like going up to someone and asking the time and then suddenly fighting Godzilla for no reason.
>>35123121I think the ghosts are way way way WAY more connected than we thought, and this speaks to a huge problem for all branches of ghostbusters.
>>35123121Where do you think we are?This is where we keep beings like Godzilla.>>35123147Serioulsy this, I stated this earlier.Jumping into the portal and towers only increased our chances of this type of encounter.The towers are major communication hubs, it's only fitting that they be where the head honcho's are.Basically, we fucked up royally.
>>35123039>they would have had the ability to control where we get directed.>>35123012>I do not see this as a logical chain of events from our actions.They didn't direct where we came out, we did.This is where Yurei is, as Hyena said, 'on ice'.Along with all of the other ghosts that don't hate the Ghostbusters. That's why Fenris got selected as the enforcer.>>35123098They can still feel pain, you know. They may not like pain.>>35123121>I don't get how we kicked the Hornet's Nest.So you don't get how that ONE GHOST could raise the alarm when we're in stadium full of ghosts that want to tear us apart? Really? You don't see that at all?
>>35123147It's still a huge disconnection. Mainly because it half feels like all of them were trap options, and half because it feels like Ghostmaster ran out of ideas and just "LOLFENRIRNOW!">>35123164Godzilla isn't a Ghost though. Also, he's a mostly beneficial kaiju.
>>35123164Our only path, just as Eduardo was, is to NOT engage Fenris directly. We need to grab Saichiko and Yurei, grab them OUT of here and try not to get killed in the process.>>35123174You get the fucking point, this is where we keep the major badguys all in one tiny freaking spot, and the towers is where they come together in this tiny tiny spot. of course if we misstep we'll encounter this situation.
>>35123169>So you don't get how that ONE GHOST could raise the alarm when we're in stadium full of ghosts that want to tear us apart? Really? You don't see that at all?No. Especially since we're jumping through multiple containment units, it's was only a small amount of time between then and us going through the portal, and that ghost raising the alarm in that unit shouldn't end up with LOLFENRIR.
>>35123187You missed the part where we came here BECAUSE we were focusing on Yurei?Did you really miss that this was where we were ultimately trying to get to?
>>35123187>and that ghost raising the alarm in that unit shouldn't end up with LOLFENRIR.Why the hell not? We chose to jump into the damn portal.A ghost gets an alarm and instantly sends a telepathic message to the rest.In less than a fraction of a second, those in control manipulate the portal to the guards and gatekeepers. Normally they would come out to take us, but instead we jumped directly to them.Fenris is one such thing, look at all the trapped beings.
>>35123187Agreed. This Fenrir encounter seems a tad unfair.We apparently would have encountered him anyway if we found the right portal.
>>35123187We ended up with LOLFENRIR because we jumped through the randomization portal.The ghost raising the alarm didn't just MAKE Fenrir appear, he was already there and then we were there too.Besides, time isn't really... a thing on other plains, at least not as we know it.
>>35123185Except it wasn't really a misstep, and I don't see how. Again, one ghost shouting "They're here." shouldn't involve the next portal we go through be Fenrir. And I want to point out>I'm sorry to end it early, but the fact that you guys decided to kick the hornet's nest kind of killed most of the stealth plots I had planned.It sounds like we're being punished because we backed the QM into a corner and he has no material planned for us outside of Stealth so he threw something big, random and unbeatable at us.>>35123217If it was as much as focusing on Yurei, why didn't we come here immediately after stepping through the first portal? >>35123222>portal to the guards and gatekeepersWe are the guards and gatekeepers.
>>35123248>why didn't we come here immediately after stepping through the first portal?Because we fucked the roll to get where we wanted to, while we succeeded on this roll to get where we wanted to.It just so happened that getting where we wanted to also happens to be where Fenris hangs out.Hyena only told us where we need to go; he said outright that he would give us no more than a direction to go towards. Of course he wouldn't tell us about any guards, he doesn't like us any more than the people who want to kill us; he just believes appeasing Anansi is more beneficial than helping us.
Hyena said they were being kept 'on ice'. Way I see it, we were gonna run into this guy, eventually. It just happened later, rather then sooner.
>>35123248>If it was as much as focusing on Yurei, why didn't we come here immediately after stepping through the first portal?Because we got a ghost roll on the roll to get where we wanted to, i.e. where Yurei is being kept on ice.
This is a good thing! We wanna take down a bringer of armageddon, anyways. Might as well get some PRACTICE.
>>35123228Hoping against hope that we only saw Fenrir, and Fenrir didn't see us yet to draw agro.
>>35123248>Again, one ghost shouting "They're here." shouldn't involve the next portal we go through be Fenrir.The next Containment Unit Tower we went to, if we didn't end up at Fenris' place, would not have immediately had an alarm up, no.But not 10 seconds behind us there would have been one of the British ghosts running through, yelling that the Ghostbusters are here.And that would have been happening to every single other Tower/Containment Unit within the next minute. And our partial invisibility is down at this point and not coming back.So THAT'S why he said we kicked over the hornet's nest and the stealth portion is scrubbed.We have a minute, at most, before every single Tower was on alert for us and our partial invisibility is gone.Tell me how a stealth portion could possibly work after that.
>>35123403Really whether or not he saw us is irrelevant.Fenrir eats gods for breakfast. It's like trying to go one on one with the Devil.
>>35123424>>35123403We could try to tell him that his daddy said to not break out and cause Fimbulwinter yet.
For the record, if you had managed to keep the alarm from going off, Fenrir would have been sleeping.
>>35123418>Tell me how a stealth portion could possibly work after that.Snake pulled it off. We just need to find a Cardboard Box.
>>35123445Surt is in here.
>>35123445We don't know that. Loki isn't exactly predictable.>>35123452Wonderful.
>>35123462Yeah, but Loki isn't.It could work.
>>35123487Fenrir doesn't even care to talk to his victims or mortals, he's literally their attack dog. Diplomacy isn't an option with him at least.
>>35123424>Fenrir eats gods for breakfast.Luckily, so do we. You don't argue with Dr. Egon Motherfucking Spengler.
>>35123512Daisuke's no Egon.
>>35122997>Taking the hostage wasn't the bad idea, but what made you guys think that a prisoner would be willing to talk in a friendly manner to a lone guard?Harem protagonist powers.
>>35123578Daisuke has a harem? I thought Sachiko was the only love interest.
>>35123504Eh, Fenrir is known to talk. The Aesir trapped him originally through trickery and Fenrir was pretty chatty.The problem is, I don't think we can bind him and he was killed by a god tearing his jaws apart.If we think up a good plan, we might be able to trick him into letting his prisoners go. But we'd have to run fast, he wouldn't be happy if he realized it.
>>35123593No, Fenrir was never killed, only chained. Eventually Fenrir eats the moon.
>>35123582>I thought Sachiko was the only love interest.SanaReikaAt one time YureiKuzupossibly starPractically every girl in this quest who isn't kaede has been proposed as the love interest
>>35123628Pfff. Well screw them. Sachiko a best.Yurei is also a best, but she's Akira's girl.
>>35123614>During the battle, Fenrisúlfr will eventually swallow Odin, killing him, and Odin's son Víðarr will move forward and kick one foot into the lower jaw of the wolf. This foot will bear a legendary shoe "for which the material has been collected throughout all time." With one hand, Víðarr will take hold of the wolf's upper jaw and tear apart his mouth, killing Fenrisúlfr.[High follows this prose description by citing various quotes from Völuspá in support, some of which mention Fenrir.He's killed after he kills Odin during Ragnarok.
>>35123546Let's hope that plays out in our favor.http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Vanguards_of_Fenris
>>35123684Well in Edith Hamilton's Mythology, he eats the moon.
>>35123582>>35123628Something something "Daisuke has a way with the ladies" since the beginning of the quest, as acknowledged by every other character.
