>>35831060>Recap:You are Makoto Kinushima, the aforementioned Armored Rider Raid, with a passionate and nigh indomitable force of will. Together with your rival Kaito Kumon, the newly christened Armored Rider Baron, the both of you ended up in the Forest beyond the Inves Portals after Lock Dealer Sid gave the two of you Lock Vehicles to resolve a fight. You manage to snag one of the fruits of the forest, turning it into a new Lockseed, the Apple Lockseed that grants you higher strength and the usage of a two-handed labrys axe. At the same time, a prowling Inves consumes some of the riper fruit on the trees and transforms into a three-story tall Berserker, which is then quickly dispatched by a green and white armored figure with sword and shield. He accosts you, challenging your purpose and your worth of donning the Sengoku Driver, but you manage to impress him with your raw guts, just enough to avoid death by his blade. Injured, you make your way to a hospital and receive some treatment for your bone bruising, and are sent home.---You are also Erina Kinushima, head financial advisor of Yggdrasil Corporation and effectively single mother of Makoto Kinushima. At a midnight company-wide meeting, the executive chairwoman of Yggdrasil, Naruya Yamauchi, announces that the Driver technology for utilizing the Lockseeds sold for the Inves Game will be put on the market for purchase and utilization, effectively upping the game to potentially dangerous levels. With 10 drivers in each major location for the Inves Game, the face of the culture will change, and Naruya seems to have taken a gleeful investment into it. Considering this revelation, you resolve to monitor the situation. You also meet Mitsuzane Kureshima, younger brother to Takatora Kureshima, and a member of the Beat Rider culture under Team Gaim, and an owner of an A-Class lockseed. Once the meeting is over, you make your way home, where Makoto is awake, and you discuss the situation.>Continued.

>>35831359>SELECT PLAYER:>>MAKOTO KINUSHIMAERINA KINUSHIMA>Makoto Kinushima selected.You are Makoto Kinushima, a Beat Rider and Armored Rider growing in popularity as of late. And more importantly - for at least today - a waitress and barista at Charmant as well! As it happens, even after the ride you went through yesterday, with the Forest and everything, your first day today. The pain in your ribs is still bothering you, but you put on a brave face - patissier Alfonzo isn't going to take kindly to those showing such weakness, you imagine.After dressing in as decent clothes as you can manage - seems like it's time to do some laundry there, Makoto - you ride your bike down to Charmant. You take pains not to aggravate the bruising on your ribs, and also not to destroy your clothing, so the ride is a bit longer than you anticipated. And this doesn't seem to please the patissier one bit. It's written on his face as he's waiting outside, arms crossed and a sour expression surrounding him.>OREN: "You're 10 minutes late, Kinushima-san. I'm intending to run a tight crew here, having a member late like this throws wrenches in plans. Got an explanation?">[Partial Truth] Explain about the injury last night as a bike accident.>[Full Truth] Explain everything.>[Lie] "Karate Gang.">[Other] (Write in)
When does the MILF become a Rider?
>>35831574If you play your cards right, it's entirely possible.
>>35831560>[Full Truth] Explain everything.
>>35831560>[Partial Truth] Explain about the injury last night as a bike accident.
>>35831560>>>[Partial Truth] Explain about the injury last night as a bike accident.
>>35831060Do we have any other art of our protag?
>>35831657Not yet, but always accepting.Here's the character sheet for her, if you want.
>>35831691What's the policy on introducing new Lockseeds? Only ones that didn't show up in the show, of course.
>>35831707It happens sometimes. Both our lockseeds are quest originals.
>>35831707>>35831718 is correct, but also there's opportunities for new lockseeds. This isn't meant to be something that more lockseeds = more power (Makoto botched using her new one last event).>>35831606>>35831620>>35831649Partial truth accepted, writing reply.
>>35831718Oh, I meant on art.
>>35831733I just want to see Jimber Melon actually get used. Especially if it leads to a Double Melon scenario like some of the fans were hoping for.
>>35831740If you want to put in new Lockseed art, go right ahead. Like I said, all art is welcomed.
>>35831773Cool cool. I can only do half-decent MSPaint stuff, but I can get it touched up by a drawthread. All that kosher? I'm a newfag to the world of /tg/.
>>35831733You look like you're not in much of a desire to speak about it, but you make something up on the spot.>MAKOTO: "I, uh, well. Bike ridin's a thing, and took a nasty tumble yesterday down a couple flights of stairs. Doc said I should be able to fully heal in the next couple days, as long as I don't get ki-- i mean, fall down stairs again."The skeptical eyebrow raise tells you that he doesn't completely believe your story, but he opens the door anyways. It looks like you're out of the fire for now... but now's time to get down to business! First order of the day - training!>Roll 1d20, best of five. If there is a 1 anywhere in the rolls, automatic crit failure. If there is a 20, on the flipside, automatic crit success.
>>35831780MSPaint stuff? Do you draw stuff entirely in MS paint?You can post art without a name attached to it. That's perfectly fine. I think you can consider drawn art posted on 4chan to be like the public domain on steroids.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>35831851What happens if we get both? Do they cancel outand we default to the highest of the remaining three
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>35831851
>>35831873Hahaha! I am the best barista!
>>35831858I do draw stuff entirely in MSPaint. With a mouse. Honestly I just kinda storyboard it most of the time and have someone who can actually art make it pretty.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>35831851Rolling for good luck!
>>35831873If that was a situation, yes that would be the case. However, crit success takes over! Crit success! Reply coming soon!>>35831900Got any examples we can look at?
>>35831873You glorious bastard.

However, crit success takes over! >Crit success! Reply coming soon!>>>35831900 (You)>Got any examples we can look at?Of the MSPaint stuff or post-prettying stuff?
>>35831968Which ever piece you want to show for your first impression.
>>35831780Feel free to post stuff! We can always use more art! I personally use pencil/paper for line art, but then use a few different programs, including MSPaint, to color. Speaking of, I'll post the colored version of my art soon!
>>35831968Both is good.>>35831937You feel a well of some form of power build within you. Maybe it's the anticipation building, maybe it's the pretense of rising to the challenge, but you feel the pain almost fade to numbness. For the rest of the day, your focus goes fully away from the rib bruising, and over the course of the day, your training is exhaustive and intense. By the time the end of your shift rolls around, you're sweating and panting and mentally exhausted. Alfonzo has been hovering over you, making sure that there's no errors - and surprisingly, you didn't make a single error for the entire shift! Despite never touching a fancy coffee maker ever before in your life.>OREN: "I must say, Makoto-san, that I didn't expect such levels of competence on a first job. Are you sure you didn't train underneath someone else?">MAKOTO: "No, patissier, this is actually my first job.">OREN: "WHAAAAAAAAAT?!"You think you've successfully impressed Patissier Alfonzo, when you clock out for the shift. HOwever, he's not done - he's holding a opaque suit bag at his side. He hands it to you, and when you open it up, it's an official Charmant waiter's uniform.>OREN: "You earned it, Makoto-san. I'm expecting you here tomorrow, same time, same place."A nagging thought blooms in your head - how's this going to interfere with your Beat Riding? Plus, y'know, with the competition heating up between the teams...>[Beat Rider] Set up a schedule for more part-time work instead of full-time.>[Charmant] Agree to a full-time schedule.>[Other] (write in)

>>35832488And while we wait for the reply, here is my rendition of Dragonfruit Arms colored! And now off to class for me...The full size is posted on my twitter @DJ_Glory_TG
>>35832488>MAKOTO: "Ah, about that, patissier...">OREN: "...?">MAKOTO: "Y'see, well, I have some Beat Rider practice some days, plus competitions... uh, can we talk about my schedule?"Oren sighs loudly, scratching his head. >OREN: "Makoto-san, I was hoping for a full-time kind of employee... I mean, I could still work with it, but..."He does accept your offer, but he's not really feeling it. This might be something that requires more time to get okay with him.Now that you're done with work, you've got the night open to you. Raid Wild's planning to meet up soon, but it's not mandatory. You could also see if you can visit Hase, or maybe check up on your mom too!>[Raid Wild]>[Hase]>[Mom]>[Other] (write in)
>>35832864>[Hase]How's the chief doing? We need Winklybonkjeepjeep back if we're going to survive.
>>35832864Ask your mom to see if Hase is allowed visitors, the meet with the rest of the team.
>>35832606Sweet! That color scheme is pretty bright and vibrant. I do have a nit pick to add with the lockseed, but I'll spoiler it.The color scheme of the lockseed is a bit too similar to the dragonfruit color, so the outline of that dragonfruit looks hard to see.I think black or a shade of dark green would work to make it pop out.>>35832864>[Hase]We should call ahead and see if he can accept visitors. Status update and planning ho!
>>35832930>>35832944>>35832998>>35833087Hase option accepted, writing reply soon.
>>35832606Looks good! You gonna color the Apple Lockseed drawing too?
>>35833097>[Text to: Mom] Hey mom, do you know if a Ryoji Hase's able to accept visitors?you text your mom, pulling out your umbrella and walking your bike down the road to Yggdrasil HQ.>[Text from: Mom] Hi honey! Uh, I can ask for you, but I dunno. Hold on.You keep walking, the rain light enough to not be affecting your mood that much but not light enough to ignore completely. The weather didn't say anything about rain, but at least it feels nice for now... gives you time to think. These last couple of days have been a sudden whirlwind of action for you. It's been hard to catch a break, just to be relaxed for a little while, that you had momentarily forgotten how it feels like. The quiet streets, the soft falling of rain between trees and onto pavement, the sounds of cars driving by and the chirping of birds... Were it not for the heavy electronic device in your backpack, and its associated Lockseeds, this could be a day you could just take off.>[Text from: Mom] The doctor's said that you can visit him, but not for long. They've got tests and such to run. I'll let Mayu at the front desk know about you. Also come say hi once you're done visiting! <3You arrive, finally, at the Yggdrasil tower in the middle of the city. Once you get to the entrance, park your bike and walk in, you notice that this is a very strange looking kind of building - given it's meant to look like a tree from the outside, the building feels unreal to look around from the inside. Indeed it looks business-like, but the glass windows don't do it any justice. You text Raid Wild that you're going to see Hase before you meet up with them.>[Straightforward] Talk to the receptionist to go see Hase.>[Family] Go see mom before seeing Hase.>[Sneaky] Try to peek around the place and learn more.>[Other] (write in)

>>35833838>mfw those numbers while no sleep in two days
>>35833838Deciding that now's not the best time to try any funny business, even with how many speculations can be made about the company's integrity, you opt for the more straightforward approach. You stride up to the receptionist, and address her.>MAKOTO: "Um, hi, I'm here to visit Ryoji Hase? I'm Makoto Kinushima, Erina Kinushima's daughter?"The woman looks up... and those sparkles in her eyes can only mean one thing,>RECEPTIONIST: "Oh...my...god... you're Makoto Kinushima! The New Kid!! Oh my god oh my god can I-- can i get your autograph?!"What's more scary about this is the woman's clearly twice your age. ANd she's clearly preparing to talk your ear off.>[Yes] Accept the offer, talk to her and satiate her desire>[No] Politely decline, trying to get past her>[Other] (write in)
>>35833942>[Yes] Accept the offer, talk to her and satiate her desire
>>35833942>[Yes] Accept the offer, talk to her and satiate her desireTry to make it clear to her that you're here on Raid Wild business. If she's a fan, she'll do everything she can to help.
>>35833942>[Other] (write in)She might be creepy, but let's not be rude. Say you'll come back to talk with her after visiting Hase and your mother.
>>35832606Try a slate grey bodysuit rather than black, with gold trimI don't know what to do about the padded sections though.
>>35834022>>35834038>>35834042>>35834084>>35834052[Yes] option accepted, writing reply.
>>35833087I'll put up both options in a few, and we can decide from there.>>35834134Like with the lockseed, I'll put up different color-combo options we can choose from. >>35833378Yep! That's next on the roster, after the alternate color options for Dragonfruit.
Decided to try and make a play on the Raid design, so took a few liberties with the base. It's done in hand so actual detail on the belt and sword got pretty hard simply because it ended up being really tiny.
>>35833942>[Other] (write in)Ask why she knows about us. Does she follow the Beat Riders community?
>>35834273>MAKOTO: "Uh, yeah, that's me! I've got some time, uh sure. Whaddya want me to sign?"Receptionist Mayu hands you - more like fumbles in your direction - a ballcap, clearly something of a piece of memorabilia for her, and a golden Sharpie. Quickly you sign the brim of the cap, throwing in a little bit of corny with "For Mayu" on it, and hand it back. Her glee is almost visible, as she clutches the ballcap tightly before resting it gently on her desk.>MAYU: "Sorry about all that, I'm just, y'know, a massive fan and everything. Been following the Beat Riders for a long time, but don't tell my boss that or anything. He's a no nonsense kind of guy, y'know. Anyway, you wanted to visit Ryoji Hase?">MAKOTO: "Yes, ma'am, i-if that's a thing. I mean, I've never visited anyone here before, much less even been here since I was a kid."She eagerly complies, with the promise that once you're done, you come back to her to talk more. Once she's done logging you in as a visitor, she gives you a Visitor's badge, with your name and a QR code on it. You can assume it has some sort of tracking chip or something else between the plastic, but for now you're free to head up, or look around for the most part.>[Visit Hase]>[Visit Mom]>[Snoop]>[Other (write in)]
>>35834691>[Snoop]>[Visit Mom]If anyone spots us, we just say we got lost on the way to Erina's office
>>35834691[Visit Hase]We were here to visit Boss first, THEN we can visit other people.
>>35834930>>35834918>>35834753>>35834729[Visit Hase] selected.Moving to next map.Loading, plEAse wait.
>>35834950>MEDICAL FLOORYour visitor badge allows you some form of freedom to move around the office, but you get a very strong sense - judging by the numerous cameras mounted on the walls and the keypads and such that stand between you and specific doors. Thankfully, your common sense leads you via the directions shown on the walls and panels near the elevators and doors. It might seem easy to get lost in here...Your elevator carriage brings you to the medical floor, laid out like an intensive care hospital. Not much of a waiting room to speak of, but there are some nice chairs and magazines. Enough to keep people not talking for a while.Another receptionist is at the desk in front, a nurse with a mole above her lip, but she looks frustratingly busy.You try to get her attention, but she puts a finger up to ask you to wait. A few minutes pass, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, and still she's busy.>[Aggressive] Demand to be let back to see Ryoji>[Patience] Pick up one of the magazines to wait your turn>[Other] (Write in)

>>35835273[x] Other: Just start walking down the ward staring into rooms. That'll get her attention.
>>35835273>[Other] (Write in)If she won't lead us to Hase, we'll just have to find him without her.
>>35835273>[Other] (Write in)Start checking the rooms for Hase, or snoop for valuble info.>>35835382Basically this but I have no faith in Yggdrasil's security, or ability to care. Unless of course we are doing some sort of invasion.
>>35835273>[Patience] Pick up one of the magazines to wait your turnAll the time in the world.
>>35833087Here is the lockseed color alts from your suggestion.

Rolled 18, 19 = 37 (2d20)>>35835647Rollan again.
>>35835647>>35835674Well now... aren't those two rolls quite different
>>35834134And here are a slew of color alternatives for the bodysuit. I thought I'd give us a bit more to choose from with the same general color scheme, but we can really do just about anything. I didn't do a Slate Gray & Silver option becuase there wasn't much of a contrast.
>>35835637>>35835753I think that the green background lockseed and the dark grey with gold undersuit look quite nice.
>>35835802I agree with this guy
>>35835753Either black & gold or dark gray & gold look the best.
>>35835753The dark grey shows more of the undersuit details more clearly, so it adds some details.I prefer the dark grey and silver myself. Silver matches better with the green to me.
DJ is currently writing! And so far I see three votes for DG/G, one for DG/S and one for B/G. And two votes for green lockseed.
>>35835674>NURSE: "Ma'am!" Before she has time to respond, you stride into the halls of the medical facility and start looking around. Hase can't be far, you figure, considering the floor is still in the rather narrow "trunk" of the tower. >NURSE: "Miss Kinushima, please hold on! Who are you here to see?"She finally catches up to you and her eyes seem to be flashing in what you assume to be anger. Seems like she's mad at her self that she didn't catch you in time.>MAKOTO: "Ryoji Hase, where is he? I haven't heard a damn thing from him. He was supposed to text me..."The nurse stops dead in her tracks. Her eyes go a bit wide, then look down.She sighs.>NURSE: "...."A chill lances through your heart. >[Anger] (write in)>[Sadness] (write in) >[Silence] >[OTHER]
>>35836455>>[Silence]Stare her down. Gaze into her very soul.

>>35836512>>35836530>>35836532>>35836562>>35836603You get right up in her face. You're damn sure you're angry enough to light her on fire if you could, but pyrokinesis hasn't been something you've been particularly skilled at. She looks at you under her lids, almost as if she's ashamed.>>35836623>MAKOTO: "What. Happened.">NURSE: "Follow me."Silently, the woman directs you down a couple hallways, to a section marked "Intensive Care Unit". >NURSE: "He's in here. He's still in quarantine, so, um. Take precautions...."The room is cold, quiet, and separated between the bed and the rest of the room by a heavy plastic curtain. Ryoji Hase, the indomitable Lion of Raid Wild, lies on the bed. His heartbeat is weak, and erratic. His skin is paler than ever, his hair starting to fall out.His veins are black, pushing out from his skin and pulsing.>Reaction? (write in, will compose a response from the results.)
>>35836926Back off sit down and try not to cry. And I guess ask about what the hell is going on with him
>>35836926*Glares across the table at DJ*
>>35837032I don't normally choose an option, but I second this.
>>35836926"Hase? You awake? It's me, Makoto."
>>35836926Wipe away the tear that you just noticed was on your cheek.
>>35836926>MAKOTO: "Did it just start raining in here?"
>>35837137>MAKOTO: "Yeah, it's totally raining."
>>35837179No.NOnoononoonohecan'tbenoNOInoYou slumped into the chair, as it slides back a bit on the plastic wheels on it. Ryoji Hase cannot be comatose, near dead. This is bullshit, this is just a prank - halloween is in two days, y'know, this could be just an elaborate prank--Who were you kidding? You knew you didn't have the mental capacity to try to rationalize this, and you try to at least compose yourself enough to talk to him. He can hear through the holes, right? Right?>MAKOTO: "Hase...? You awake? It's me, Makoto."No response. As expected.>MAKOTO: "Um, things are okay... Hase-kun, Honda has taken over for you, and we've been doing great..."...Over the course of the next few minutes, you lay out literally everything that's happened since he's been in the hospital. This isn't a man you have feelings for, and haven't gotten the chance to know much about, but it can't be helped - salty drops fall from your eyes. >Response? (write in)
>>35837621>Tell him goodbye for now, and that we'll come by again later with some of the others.>Go see mom
>>35837621Call the rest of the crew. They deserve to get in a few last goodbyes.
>>35837621Ask the nurse if/when he will recover. Or at least the possibility that he'd recover and more calmly ask what's going on.
>>35837621Let the team know, they've known him even longer than you have.
>>35837621Resolve to find a way to make sure what happened to Hase never happens again. Perhaps using our new bike to explore the forest would be a good first step? Forget what the white Armored Rider said, we need answers about that place.
>>35837887>MAKOTO: "I'm, uh, gonna go and get the rest of the team. They'll come see you, it'll be okay... don't worry."Somberly, you make your way quietly out of the room, but not before saying:>MAKOTO: "Hase... please... come back to us..."The nurse is waiting for you once you close the door to his room. You quietly turn ot her, trying to maintain a sense of composure. The light mascara streaks down your cheek don't help with your appearance.>MAKOTO: "So, is there any hope for him? What's his recovery likelihood?">NURSE: "Depends on his resolve. He's in a comatose state, for now. All we can really do is monitor him and make sure he's still going. Even the top researchers haven't made progress with it."Soon enough, your friends come as well. Most are in various states of disarray, even Honda, who's trying to not even sniffle. Yusei's taking it the hardest, openly crying. Poor kid.However, you pull Honda to the side. You've got a spark that's pushing you past standing still and crying - you need to explore that forest again. Because...>This just got personal. This is for Hase.>I can't let anyone else suffer the same fate.>This is for revenge. Against that armored Rider.>Other (write in)

>>35838483>MAKOTO: "This is something I can't let happen to anyone else. We can't let others get hurt in the Forest...">HONDA: "...">MAKOTO: "And this... is now personal."You, unknowingly, clutch the hem of your vest. You didn't want to admit it, but you would have let it just brush were it not for the inclusion of Hase into this dangerous game.The Forest must fall.Honda nods, along with everyone leaving the room to join you. >HONDA: "Jus' know, we're behind ya. Hase's our friend. An' while ah can't fight like you, we'll do our best to stand by you."Yusei speaks up, however.>YUSEI: "H-hey, hold on! I can fight too! I want to help fight, I can prove myself!">Allow Yusei to try get in on this>Decline

If I have to take on the responsibility of eliminating the danger myself, then I will... but you guys are my friends. And I can't let you guys get hurt."Without another word of protest, you turn around and head towards the elevator. Honda, Yusei and the others try to follow you, but your press on the button is enough to reaffirm your desire. You cannot go back now. The woman was right, after all.Your fate is sealed. The Forest must be destroyed.>Acquired skill [Dragon's Will]! >Skill Description: Once per thread, get a massive boost to the results of a combat or contest of will. This skill usage has to be agreed upon by the members of the thread, same voting system, and can only be used when skill rolls are utilized. You decide to head up further, to the floor that your mom works on. It's a rather long elevator ride, and you do your best to wipe off the streaked lines off of your cheeks before you reach the floor. The passion that was in your voice prior, while talking to Raid Wild, fades to leave a rather quiet feeling in your gut. Without much fury or spark to spare right now, it feels like you're on autopilot as you walk the halls to your mom's office. You don't even bother knocking more than once, before opening the door.>ERINA: "...Makoto?! What's going on?!"Immediately you collapse into your mother's spare chair, the air going out of your lungs in a long sigh. You tell her most everything - about Hase's condition, about the look on his face... about the monologue you effectively gave him. You're not one for getting this emotional, but you can't control your voice effectively through it.>MAKOTO: "He's my first real friend, Ma, and he's now currently looking like he's one feather away from tipping over the edge.

But we need to do this thing together. With people, not by ourselves. I already offered my help... but if there are other riders out there, with the same power, maybe you should petition them for help? I'm not entirely sure how this kind of thing works, Mako-chi."She has a point.

>>35840691We did, yes. Last thread. It's how we got a look into Yggdrasil's operations, and finally brought up in-thread that the company is behind the sale of lockseeds, allowing me to talk about it without spoilers. I'm happy about that.

>>35840593PLAYER CHANGE: TAKATORA KURESHIMAIt's a late night. Your work has been exhausting, with the research your team's been doing into the powers of the Lockseeds, the Sengoku Drivers, and you are currently looking over the last test's results at your desk near the top of Yggdrasil Tower.Your phone rings. At nearly midnight. Never is this a good sign.The voice on the other side, dulcet female tones that are almost sing-songy in nature, is doubly worrying. >VOICE ON THE PHONE: "Heeey, do you have a moment? We need to discuss some things. I'm heading over right now."You, Takatora Kureshima, are about to be visited by the executive chairwoman herself. Either you're about to be fired, or worse, promoted.>Ask for more time to clean up your desk.>Have the door open for her.>Other (write in)

Because he really had no excuse for not knowing that. DJ Sagara had profile pictures of the Armored Riders on his website, so it's not like their identities were a secret.

>>35841534>TAKATORA: "The Sengoku Driver research is going well, chief. No problems to report, so far.">NARUYA: "That's good to hear, love, but I'm not here for that. Well, sort of related, but not about the research itself. Knock knock~"You open the door just as the Chairwoman, Naruya Yamauchi, strides in smoothly. She offers you an affable warm grin, giving you peace of mind for only a moment, before her assistant, a French-American girl with white-blonde hair and a streak of shocking blue, follows suit. She giggles behind her ever-present clipboard, before making an off-color compliment (at least you assume so, by her tone) in French. Closing the door, you resume your seat behind your desk, and the Chairwoman takes one of the spares. Every time Mrs. Yamauchi's in the room, she always manages to bring a smile to people's faces, but a doubt of worry behind her words.>NARUYA: "So, I've been noticing the Riders have been heating up already here in Zawame, yeah?">TAKATORA: "Yes, ma'am. Four Drivers have already been distributed, and four Riders named after either their dancing teams or what they're inspired by - Gaim, Baron, Raid, and Ryugen, who's allied with Gaim I believe."To reaffirm your point, you pull up the listings on the Beat Rider Hotline and show it to her. Currently Baron and Raid are vying for the top slot, but Gaim's steadily climbing the rankings to challenge the two of them. Two things stand out: one, the listing for Ryugen's player (Mitsuzane Kureshima); and two, that the Armored Rider Raid's player (Makoto Kinushima) was not only the same new Rider in the Helheim Forest which you dueled, but she's related to Erina Kinushima, one of your closer associates.>Bring this up to Naruya about meeting some of these Riders>Remain silent and wait for her to respond.
>>35841738>Remain silent and wait for her to respond.
>>35841738>>Bring this up to Naruya about meeting some of these RidersSo I'm wondering how he never figured this out before
>>35841738>>Bring this up to Naruya about meeting some of these RidersTheir cooperation would be a great help for our research.
>>35841738Tell her. We are an associate of Yggdrasil, nothing to hide.
>>35841738>Bring this up to Naruya about meeting some of these RidersI'm sure she's aware of this, but we should still tell her that two of the four Riders are readily available for us to contact. It would just be embarrassing if we looked like we didn't know our own brother was one of them. Imagine if it looked like it took months to notice Mitsuzane was one of them, how would anyone take us seriously after that?
Bring this up
>>35841943>>35842010>>35842086>>35842090>>35842116>TAKATORA: "Chairwoman Yamauchi, something to note - both Raid and Ryugen we can get in contact with. Both of them are directly related to members of the Yggdrasil community." >NARUYA: "Oh?">TAKATORA: "Ryugen's user is my brother, and Raid's user is the daughter of Erina Kinushima.">NARUYA: "Do you feel that they need to be pulled out of the experiments? Part of the reasons behind the experiments is to see how this power is disseminated without actual regulation."And there's part of Naruya's possible logic gap. She's never seemed to get the concept of collateral damage, or responsibility in general. Always a mystery as to how she's constantly in power...>TAKATORA: "...probably not. If that's the aim for this, Chairwoman."Naruya just smirks.>NARUYA: "And what of you, Takatora-san? Are you aiming to also get involved in this entire war that's about to happen?">[Yes]>[No]
>>35842329>[No]We have bigger fish to fry, like the Helheim problem.

>>35842329>[No]"I believe it would compromise the experiment, given my greater experience with using the Sengoku Driver. Perhaps once the scenario has progressed further and the Riders gotten more skillful, but for now I think my time is best spent on my current duties."
>>35842329There is no need to get in their way. What with Helheim being a issue. Still, why not keep a tab on it? If capable fighters pop up, they can certainly help with the helheim situation. Going to need as many strong people as possible.

Thread still going when I get back from work? Excellent.
>>35842530You shake your head to the negative. You've never been the kind of person to directly involve yourself like this, and it's not a good idea to start now.>TAKATORA: "I believe the current plan is to observe and report, until the situation changes - whether for better or worse."Naruya smiles, and rises out of her chair. She turns to the door, starts walking, but looks behind her. Again, her dramatics serve only to worry you further.>NARUYA: "I believe we might be delivering some things that'll shake up the coming war, Takatora-san. You'd be in for a treat... might want to consider your decision once more. Have a good night."Strangely final, she walks out, her assistant bowing a bit before toddling along behind the Chairwoman. As soon as she leaves the room, the tension seems to clear, and you slump in your chair a bit. You weren't going to admit that you were more than a little sore from the fight against Raid, but now wasn't the time to bring it up. There was more work to be done, and sitting around pondering the Chairwoman's choices wasn't going to get that done. The Professor was not a man that waited for sunrise to begin, after all...-------------PLAYER SELECT:>MAKOTO KINUSHIMA>ERINA KINUSHIMANo blank check this time

>>35843227>PLAYER SWITCH: MAKOTO KINUSHIMA>Status: HEALTHY, LIGHT INJURYToday's a fantastic day in the neighborhood, as you wake up back in your own bed. It's nice and cool with the breeze coming in through the win--Hase's still stuck in the hospital, with no ETA on becoming fully healed.Thanks, brain. You didn't need that burst of frustration.Flopping on the bed once more, you look up and ponder your choices for the day. Aside from the necessary food and karate practice - should you even go to it, given your injury? nah, probably not. Wouldn't want to risk pushing yourself too far with the bruised bones you have.First and foremost on the plate today is trying to contact Team Gaim to set up an alliance, but you've got a couple things to solidify first:>Bring Honda with you to vouch for you>Go alone, but inform Honda about the proceedings>Go alone, but without informing Honda
>>35843859>Bring Honda with you to vouch for youThe team's gotta stick together, now more than ever!
>>35843859Bring Honda. At the very least we need the leader there to make it official. We don't want to give them any ideas.
>>35843859>Bring Honda with you to vouch for you
>>35843859>Bring Honda with you to vouch for youAdds some credibility to our argument if we have someone else from the team with us.Speaking of alliances, I wonder what Kaito's doing. Is he still going to make his grand alliance of dance teams?
>>35843998I don't think it will be a big alliance. As is, Baron is going nuts and got told by everyone. They lack the power they had before.
>>35843947>>35843954>>35843975>>35843998>>35844082You ring up Honda real quick.>MAKOTO: "Hoi, Honda, got an idea.">HONDA: "Kinushima, it's like 9:30, what's so important that it can't wait?">MAKOTO: "It's about an alliance. ANd something more."Soon enough, you and Honda are standing outside of the abandoned garage that Gaim calls home. You know you're uninvited, but you're hoping your news would bring some form of relief and even some support.>HONDA: "So what's the plan behind this, Kinushima?">Inform Gaim about everything, in the interest of honesty>Inform Gaim about just the danger of the Inves breaking free>Keep the alliance solely about Beat Rider stuff
>>35844082Yeah, but he was in a similar situation in canon. having access to Helheim let him get the other teams on his side by bribing them with Lockseeds. Then again, there are a lot more Riders at this stage than there would be in canon. Certainly Raid Wild has no need to ally with him. So maybe he'll try some other means of regaining influence?
>>35844231Note that Takatora said that four Drivers have been purchased and obtained - Gaim, Ryugen, Baron and Raid. Globally there's a lot more riders, but in Zawame there are still only 4.
>>35844259And in canon, there would only be two right now: Gaim and Baron. We're a third, and something we did butterfly effected Micchy into getting his early. So there are more Armored Riders out there to contest his power than there otherwise would be.
>>35844227>Inform Gaim about just the danger of the Inves breaking free
>>35844227>Inform Gaim about everything, in the interest of honestyNever go full Micchy
>>35844227Might as well spill everything.
>>35844227>Inform Gaim about everything, in the interest of honestyThey need to know why we're so freaked out. Tell them everything, so they understand what we mean when we say that Inves are dangerous. Kouta (or whoever is Armored Rider Gaim, we never actually got confirmation on that) has handled berserk Inves before, so he might be overconfident that this isn't a huge problem. Especially since in this timeline he didn't get his ass kicked by Zangetsu to give him some humility. But an otherworldly parasitic life form using Inves to enter our world? I think that might get more of a reaction out of him.
>>35844227>Inform Gaim about the danger of the inves breaking free.We should start off easy. We could bring up the dangers of inves stuff gradually. Like when Hase is brought up.Let's not become door to door proselytizing about Inves stuff.
>>35844227Tell them EVERYTHING!
>>35844427Bitch are you micchi
>>35844292Do not forget Hase's driver. The lockseed is dead, but the driver still works. Still.. seems odd that Hase wasn't mentioned by Takatora.

>>35844427We could always offer to take on of their Riders to the forest on the Rose Attacker. Show them the alien ecosystem we're so scared of.
>>35844509Could be he was just counting active Riders. Could be that since Kurokage Troopers already exist he doesn't see it as anything special. Could be that Hase never transformed anywhere that could be observed, so it's not recorded that he had a Driver in the first place.
>>35844609Recording information is saved in the driver itself, so it would of sent something back to Yggdrasil if Hase used his belt anyway. If I remember correctly.
>>35844486Yes. I am actually a Grape.>>35844533Hmm. That could work really well. I am worried this could be misconstrued as a trap, though."Hey guys. There's an alien ecosystem that's coming just your way. Just follow me on my rose bike! I am totally a great tour guide~"
>>35844646Not him, but they know he's out of commision, he's staying in their home base after all. They're likely only counting active Riders.
>>35844646Recorded information goes back to Dr. Warren Statesmen, though, and he likes to keep secrets.
DJ is currently working on his reply. In the mean time, here's another color alt for you guys to consider. DJ and I were thinking that either pure silver or pure gold was too much, so we thought that maybe a three-toned suit like Melon-boy's would work (almost have inverse colors of his with this version). What do you all think?
>>35844841Personally, I liked the gold headpiece. Added a bit more color to a mask that was otherwise monochrome due to dragonfruit having a white inside.
>>35844870Why not have the middle crest be gold, and the ones on the left and right be silver?
>>35844526You take a deep breath, and knock on the door to the garage. Shortly after, you hear a "Coming!" from inside, and who opens the door but Mai Takatsukasa herself. Needless to say, she's surprised to see you guys, if a bit skeptical. It appears that out of the few members of Gaim, Micchy is present, standing in front of a board depicting the teams. All of Gaim is watching you, however.>MAI: "Makoto-san? Honda-san? Can we help you guys?">MAKOTO: "Heya, um, do you guys have a few minutes?

Severe Beat, Popup and a few others have already jumped at the chance, and now we're scrambling to find anyone that's gonna stick with us...">Continued.
>>35844841Dang. That's really nice.I like the decision to have the gold accents on the boots and hands.
>>35844870>>35844907Ok, more decisions coming your way! I decided to throw the other alt of silver center/gold sides in there, too.And thanks for all the comments and suggestions, everyone!
>>35845093Hm. I think I like the far right the most.
>>35845123Yeah, I think that one works best.
>>35845093Hmm. The gold crest looks the best to me. (Middle left)It looks like a piece of jewelry and it does bring color to the helmet.

But all this about the world beyond the portals, and everything... is kind of out of our purview. Wouldn't you say, Mai?">MAI: "That's right... I don't know if we'll be able to help you with that. If we see anything-- huh?"Within a couple seconds, Micchy's on his phone answering a call (his phone must have been on vibrate or something) and his face drains of all blood. His responses are inaudible, and as he turns his phone off.>MICCHY: "I, uh... I gotta go, I'll explain later. I'm really sorry, guys!!" Before anyone else has a chance to speak up, he's stumbling through the door, panic clearly written on his face. And as he's on his way out, what looks to be...Is that Kouta Kazuraba?!

>>35845395Go with the gold headpiece. It looks good. Maybe use silver on whatever our Super Arms eventually is.
>>35845360No, our position hasn't been defined. We are still the newbie to the group, despite being an Armored Rider.

>>35845595I hope we do. Admittedly, it does seem unlikely that Sagara would give us any power-ups. But there are other sources of power, I'm sure we can find something. Worst case scenario, we take the Kikaider crossover episode as canon and become a super cyborg.

The camera didn't catch up with you, but we heard you and him got out much later in the day."Quickly, you recount the tale of your experience in the Forest. His expression darkens a bit, to a more somber face, and as you go on further, going into the tales about Hase, it becomes an actual frown. You're sure you've never seen someone's lights go out in their eyes so quickly, and so heartbreakingly.>KOUTA: "And you're sure those injuries were from the Inves in that place? Not possible that white Rider was the one that, y'know...?"You stop cold in your tracks. >MAKOTO: "...it was too dark to tell, but I assumed by the infection that it was due to Inves... are you trying to insinuate...?">KOUTA: "I don't know the entire details, but I'd wager there's a possibility there..."------------------------------------------------------------------------------------>Continued...

>>35845819Great Thread my good man!
>>35845819Well, aren't you sinister all of a sudden, Takatora? Then again, you tended to be this early in the series. Thanks for running, Sagara. This was good. We're starting to catch onto the plot threads, it's making it fun to see where this goes. See you next time.
And with that, here's the end result of the color choices!So, as usual, feel free to continue discussing what's happened, give comments, suggestions, and speculation on what's to come! We'll be on mobile for a while as we head on home.Again, feedback is much appreciated for the thread and art! (Also, the more art the better! Looking at you Skaphel!)We'll see you all same time same place next week!DJ Sagara's twitter: @DJ_Sagara_TGMy art postings twitter: @DJ_Glory_TGDJ will post the link to the archived thread when it goes through.
Regardless of whether the wounds on Hase where from Zangetsu or an Inves, the point stands that we need to find a way to contain the breaches between worlds. Parasitic plant spores are a bad thing, it's best to keep them away from humanity. Especially with what they grow into. But let's not talk about that, there are some people here who haven't watched the series and we shouldn't spoil that reveal. It's a nasty one, though.
>>35845819Oh my. How disconcerning.This was an great thread, DJ Sagara! And thanks Lori for contributing with Drawfriend collaboration!

>>35831780>>35834329Hey, as Peachy has already done (I like the concept of the Raid Wild based design!), feel free to draw your own designs for Dragonfruit Arms, Lockseeds, etc! Just make sure to share it with us! Also, if anyone has an idea and doesn't want to draw it themselves, post a description and I can make an attempt to draw the idea. (This is how the majestic Hase Bird got drawn!)Meanwhile, I'll keep posting things on my twitter as I get things done.
