Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.But damn, its fullYou are Zachary Zelnacki, newly formed Epic. Two months ago, super-powered people rose from the wea-I mean normal. Yeah, normal. You have the ability to control vectors, allowing you to change the speed and direction of any solid object within 15 yards(13 meters). You are also inhumanly tough, able to shrug off small caliber weapons. Finally, and perhaps most important, you are able to absorb powers from dead Epics, if you touch them within ten minutes of death.You witnessed an Epic fight in the local Middle school, and absorbed the power of steel manipulation and regeneration. You then uploaded the video of the battle and bought a Glock. Finally, you check around town for anything of interest. You see a poster about an Epic in Sacramento, read about a trio of Epics that took over New York City, and learned about LA. Now, what to do...>Go to Sacramento>Road trip to NYC>LA baby!>Stay here>Write InRead the last two threads at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Epic%20QuestNumber .5 is the first one, sorry if thats confusing
>>36229264>But damn, its full
>>36229264>Road trip to NYCSo we're sylar? I can get behind this.
>>36229294*funHow the hell did I mess that up?
>>36229264>Go to SacramentoBetter fight to watch and learn there, plus you can make more videos to get more followers. The wea- normal people may be insignificant to Epic , but the can be damn helpful if you can play them right.
>>36229264>>Road trip to NYC
Okay, since last thread, I've decided to give XP. Each time you do something big(fight, steal a power, subjugate a town) you get XP. You can spend XP on temporary power ups, level up powers, or burn it for extra rolls if you want it.FIGHT FROSTYFIND EPIC'S WEAKNESS(filming him)STEAL POWER----------------------------------------------------------Total XP: 200Also, writing. Timeskip or a few episodes of wacky hijinks on the way there?
>>36229264>>Go to SacramentoIf we don't like it, we can bail and head on down to Sacramento.
>>36229578>wacky hijinksSure, sounds fun
>>36229578Hijinks on the way there I guess, Keep filming fights, the knowledge alone makes it worthwhile and you can either sell it for money or use it to pinpoint someone's abilities. Also how much exp to level our power stealing, invulnerability or regen?
>>36229578>wacky hijinksCos why not
>>36229578Let's have a hijink on the way. Also, dump into invuln and Vector. Regen we can lose, so let's not invest in it.
>>36229662>Regen we can loseAre you retarded? Regen is one of the strongest possible powers. Especially when combine with others.
>>36229682>Reality warping>Time Control>TeleportationI'd drop regen for this trio.
>>36229662Unless power stealing upgrade can let us pick and choose what we can and can't lose. We need to see costs before we can decide though. Also with Regen and invulnerably plus vectors we can take a shit ton of punishment shrug it off and keep coming.
>>36229578How much does it cost for temporary power ups, level up powers and burn it for extra rolls?
>>36229707We'd have to kill someone with those powers first and make sure that was the last they used....... no easy task.
>>36229707>Reality warping, time control, teleportation, vector Manip, and invulnerability.Can I get an 'Aww, you mad?' attached to this pic?
>>36229707>Reality warpingYes, being god is better than regeneration. It's also better than literally everything else.
>>36229775And, of course, forgot the pic.
>>36229644Power stealing: 800. Lets you copy four powers at once at 60% power(you have regen&steel at 50% power)Invulnerablity: 500. Makes rifle shots(.223, .30, 5.56) along with buckshot near useless against you. Bruises, but most won't enter the body. Pistols might as well be a guy throwing pebbles at you. Watch out of heavier rounds, though.Regen: 400 or absorb another regen power. Makes wounds scab over in a minute and deeper wounds take a few hours to be almost healed. Don't tear your stitches, though, in a day you are fine. Must keep brain intact>>36229724Burns go at 100 points a dice. Temporary power ups vary, depending on the amount you use, the stronger the power up
>>36229806Can't upgrade steel manipulation?
>>36229806How about Vectors?
>>36229806So we can upgrade a power by eating it's copy? Awesome. I'd say save up to boost one of our core powers before we try upgrading one we might lose. We'll be game breakers if we ever max out stealing.
>>36229858you didn't ask.steel manipulation: 400 or absorb another regen power. Lets you control more steel from a farther range. Allows for high limited iron manipulation, but iron control is much weaker.
>>36229858I wonder why we bought a gun when we have steel and vectors. Can't we just summon metal to ourselves and then use vector to fire it faster than any bullet?
>>36229926Bullet bending, turn it from harmless to deadly midflight or adjust trajectory. Plus we can use it to bluff people. We're trying to stay low profile atm, power stealers are probably on every other epic's shitlsit.
>>36229871600. Upgrades max speed(50mph-60mph). Heavier things and items lightly rooted in the ground can be manipulated. WIth lots of practice, can allow limited flight/double jump
>>36229960Does the 200 include what we took from that red-suited pleb?
>>36230036Shit, forgot about him.TOTAL: 250
>>36230069Coolio. Well, I don't think we'll be spending anything since we can't afford anything.
>>36229949A good way to check for that is to go on /ep/ and say, "So, what's the general attitude towards power stealers? Cause I think I saw one somewhere in the Dallas area.
>>36230102>implying moot doesn't log the IP of everyone posting on /ep and sell it to interested epics
>>36230120>Implying moot isn't a techopathic epic
>>36230102>>362301204chan had the highest rate of Epics in the world. No known reason. Also makes up the largest amount of Epics killed and/or captured by the government. Posting your location and a list of powers isn't the best plan when the NSA already has you on a list
>>36230189We're leaving anyways. Post it from a public wi-fi.
>>36230102That is a terrible idea
>>36230170Moot owns all the proxies now.

>>36230353BOOM! We're in business
>>36230428Woe be unto this day, for yet another tripfag was born.
>>36230452He's the quest's op, shut it. He needs this so he doesn't get impersonated.
>>36230452Trips are acceptable for identifying QMs. It prevents trolls from taking over names as I'm doing here.
You decide to blow this small town. Whatever John Melloncamp says, it isn't great. You take one more shower at your shitty apartment, cramped more than usual. Being an Epic can be great, but nothing is made for a six foot four adonis. Doorways too low, clothes get wider the higher in size they get instead of longer, and shower heads are at eye level. Tailors for Epics must make a fortune. You throw on a pair of comfortable pants and a XXL T-shirt, then start packing. First all of your clothing that fits, a small pile that fits into a backpack. Then your laptop and it's charger, non-perishable food, PS4, a bag with your MMA gear, toiletries, a sleeping bag and pillow, that mace you bought at a renaissance fairand a few other necessities. All of your belongings fit in the trunk of your car, a (insert car make and model). You leave the door to the apartment open, unlocked. Let the raccoons piss on your bed and claw up the curtains, not your problem.You shift the car into drive, backing it out of the spot that has been it's home for the last year. Plugging your iPhone into the central consul, you get a map to NYC, passing through as little cities as possible. You turn on Pandora, put on some road trip music, and start driving.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbNlMtqrYS0And driving...And driving...And driving...You stop in a few small towns, most harboring scared people armed to the teeth. Now, in the largest town you've passed through, is a line of men armed with high caliber rifles. One is even in a mech suit. Those are expensive, this one easily over $100,000 judging from the exterior. One laser cannon is mounted on the wrist, a heavy steel claw at the end of the other arm. Two jets on the back are barely visible, evidence of the jump jet package. They are waving at you, one holding a sign that says "Pull over for Inspection">What do?
>>36230502I guess we pull over. Can't outrun lasers.
>>36230502Pull over. Be ready to vector or metal manipulate their shit but don't display active powers. If they give you shit explain you're heading to the NY to record Epics fight, their money in it.
>>36230502>(insert car make and model)
>>36230502Speed away on our car boosted with vectors
>>36230721Not strong enough for that plus they have a laser. We can't block or tank a laser yet.
You slow the car, letting it roll to a stop at the side of the road. A dense wood of redwoods, oaks, and scrub sits on your right, about ten steps away from the passenger side of the car. Up ahead, a few feet from the mech(Hammerfall tm), is a sign that says "Welcome to Ridgewood" below the professional sign is a large piece of plywood painted black with white letters. "EPICS SHOT ON SIGHT". Thats nice, what a welcoming town.One of the men detaches from the line and walks over to your car. Dressed in a brown cowboy hat and camouflage clothes, the man has a burnished steel star on his shirt. Looks like the sheriff is here."Good evening sir. Just a routine inspection. If you'll just stick your arm through the window, we'll get you back on your way." The man smiles, a thick brown mustache covering much of his mouth. He shouts back to the line, "Get the dowser!" then turns back to you."Standard procedure. What is your purpose in our fair town, do you have any concealed weapons on you, and would you like some lemonade and cookies?" That last question throws you off for a second, before you respond."Heading to New York for work, I have a Glock 19 in my glovebox, and if you have extra, I would like some. What is the dowser, if I can ask?""Just a machine for sensing Epics. We had a bad experience last month, and started beefing up security. Now, stick your hand through the cuff and squeeze your hand till I say stop." The man now has a small machine, that looks like a combination blood cuff and iPhone. A ring of short needles are inside the cuff, likely to test the blood of the user.>What do?
>>36230960"I'll save you the trouble then. I'm an Epic, and I'm just trying to get to New York. Do you know any backroads I can take, if I can't go through?"
>>36230960*sigh* I'm an Epic and I don't want any trouble just let me pass through alright? Honestly i'm kind of shitty at this since it started like 2 days ago. Figured I could go to new York film the others beating the snot out of each other and make some money selling the footage. Sides ever heard of an epic driving a P.o.s. like this?
>>36230960Implode the mech with our steel powers and then fire out pieces of it at all the other pea-humans around.Continue driving.
>>36230960Grab the man chuck him at the other one. Vector run to the mech where we rip it to shit with metal power
>>36231092>>36231040Laser would one shot us. and our vector isn't much against armor yet. The metal isn't iron enough for us to bend.
>>36231165You need to aim and we are pretty fast. Also lasers would be piss easy to bend if we set the vectors up before it firing
>>36231192We aren't accelerator we can't bend then yet, sides bet the mech is out of range.
>>36231165>>36231092>>36231040You can sense that the mech is mainly aluminum, titanium, composite armor with a little steel in it. You could try to rip them out, but it depend on your rolls if you use it in combat
>>36231239Try to beg our way through first, we aren't That guy yet. They start shit then we end them.
>>36231271>prohibited from good alignment>epics are universally assholes
>>36231228Lasers are shit tier, bullets would be harder to curve then lasers
>>36231239Then lets do that before they start shooting us for the test results. Or do all you diplofags not see the sign that says 'EPICS SHOT ON SIGHT'?
>>36231301Lawful Evil don't start shit but if someone else does paint the town red.
>>36231330These seem like reasonable people. I assume the sign is more for the wandering atom bomb, and not the pleb who's like, "Look, can you just give me a detour?"
>>36231341>Lawful Evil don't start shitWut
>>36231375He doesn't. He obeys the laws and tries to talk/lawyer his way out of trouble first.When shit hits the fan, though, he is quite thorough.
>>36231375Not when you don't need to, if anything do it behind the scenes. They come after us we destroy everything and leave maybe one survivor to explain why we did what we did, sans arms and legs.
>>36231409Nah, just sans legs. How will he live long enough to tell anyone if he can't move.
>>36231403My bad i thought you meant the alignment
>>36231445Lawful evil follows the law, ie no killing the innocent. They attack us unwarranted we have free reign in self defense. We're just VERY proactive and Thorough. Better for us if people realize we aren't going to murder them for being civil to us. That way we can get a following and power base more easily. That being said they even think of shooting us we kill them all, except the one warning to the other guys.
>>36231518Except that's horseshit. Lawful evil follows its own set of laws rigidly, but couldn't give two fucks about society. Regardless, you're just asking to die so lets go ahead and finish this quest up.
>>36231518I disagree but I've been working all day so im not going bother arguing with you. Also alignments are pants on head retarded
>>36231565Agreed was using it to make a point. Probably missed it.>>36231557My interpretation is different than yours deal with it. Besides we are more than fast enough to kill some regular troops if need be. Mech is the only things that worries me.
>>36231596>deal with itlol no. I'll just continue to call you a retarded fuck.
>>36231557That's Lawful Neutral. Lawful Evil takes the established laws and twists them. Lawyering and backstabbing and even breaking the law when he's certain he can get away with it.
>>36231618Ok sure whatever anon.>>36231631So like exterminating a town after someone fires one shot at us?
>>36231655If it benefits us, certainly.But if there's no clear benefit, we won't go out of our way to do it.
>>36231655Pretty much yes
>>36231678Sounds about right. Just making sure I had a solid grasp on mindset, been a while since I played an evil char.
You sigh, then say, "I'm an Epic and I don't want any trouble just let me pass through alright? Honestly i'm kind of shitty at this since it started like 2 days ago. Figured I could go to new York film the others beating the snot out of each other and make some money selling the footage. Sides ever heard of an epic driving a P.o.s. like this?"The man's eyes widen and bug out of his head, looking like a cartoon character that saw a pie on a windowsill. He stumbles back, fumbling at his side arm. He starts to pull it from the leather holster, screaming "EPIC!" to his men. The mech's laser arm slowly starts spinning, a small segment at a time. A blue light seeps into the air around it, along with a high pitched whine. You quickly take off your seatbelt, and dive away from the car through the open window. Shit it be, but it's YOUR shit. You roll, passing the sheriff. He spins, gun pointed at your torso. He smiles slightly, then pulls the trigger.The revolver's hammer falls in slow motion, followed by a flash of white and an ear-splitting explosion. At least the laser's whine is gone. Or your hearing is. Either way, a powerful ringing is surging through your head.Ha! He missed! Wait. Why is he running away? Oh, there it is. The bullet is laying on the ground, pushed into a mushroom cap. A slight sting is is annoying you, and a small raised welt is on your arm. Looks like a mosquito bite.1/2
You raise, taking in all your surroundings. You can feel the grid of steel beneath your feet, extending on in a straight line. The men are armed with steel, the main control housing for the mech's laser made up of high carbon steel. Your car could also be used, but that would likely destroy it. The men are in a ragged line, beach chairs knocked over when they stood. The mech is off to one side, two men from the middle of the line. They all have various rifles pointed at you, including the blue laser cannon of the mech. A small AA gun is set up on it's shoulder, a camera focusing in on you. All these barrels, staring you down, and here you have only two hands. Now you know how a chick at a gangbang feels.>What do?
>>36231709Well done retards
>>36231733Well, let's crush the barrels of all the weapons. "Alright, everyone needs to just calm the fuck down, kay?"
>>36231733Side dash away from our stuff, Metal manipulate the main control housing for the laser, wreck it. Try to get to cover. Wreck the rest of their weapons then kick the shit out of them.
>>36231780>continuing to be this retardedI'm not going to vote because I want you to die.
>>36231780Wow, shit seriously?
>>36231780Sorry they attacked us, they at minimum get put into the hospital for months. >>36231788Just try to relax anon. It's a game.
>>36231733Grab steel grid chuck it at the laser, then try to destroy the mech by ripping it to pieces. After that Rip the innards of the soldiers out through their stomachs
>>36231733I vote to back this>>36231780
>>36231788>>36231807>>36231808Hey, it was a token 'peaceful end' option. Nothing better than loyal plebs who will die for you of their own free will.nothing more amusing either
>>36231855>Nothing better than loyal plebs who will die for you of their own free will.Are you high or brain dead?
>>36231855True but if we calmly talked to that one guy and he flipped out at us, they won't be more receptive and will likely call for back up. Hence ripiing them a new one at minimum at worst leaving only one maimed survivor to tell the story after we explain to him what he did wrong.
>>36231855>admits to being the thing that there is literally a sign saying they will shoot on sight>after this has predictable consequences, ignores the biggest threat and continues to try and be a faggotI cannot fathom how you manage to even feed yourself with that level of stupidity.
>>36231886>leaving only one maimed survivor to tell the story You are no better then the original retard
Okay, I feel like you guys want to go berserkBattle plan?
>>36231925No no, disabling the rifles and trying to talk them down won.Narrate our death.
>>36231925Get to cover, take out the mech's laser or hit it with that steel grid. Then disable their guns. Then punch them hard. Kill them or not doesn't matter at this point. Also frag that camera.
>>36231925Crush the barrels of all the weapons, then go on a beating spree

You shoot forward, moving at an easy forty miles per hour. You close on one of the men, then jump into the air.Your momentum drives your foot forward, straight into the man's sternum. You can feel something beneath your foot crack, then cave inwards. You follow the dropping man, landing atop his broken body. Hunched over him, you can feel a series of shots hit your back. Only one really hurts, at the small of your back. The rest only sting a bit, like a hard slap to the back.You stand, shaking the foot imbedded in the man's ribcage. It comes off, with a sick sucking sound. Thats another pair of shoes ruined by blood. You look down, seeing a red dot moving up and down on your chest. Following the light back to it's origin, you look down the twin barrels of an AA gun. You reach out, hand closing into a fist. One of the barrels close into its self, bents in the shape of your fingers. Then it opens fire. The left barrel bursts, spraying into a daisy shape. The other barrel still works, however.Bullets slam into you, punches straight to the gut. You fly backward, bleeding from the bullet wounds. You fly to the side, vectoring into the grass on the side of the road. You pull up a few pieces of rock, each about the size of gumballs.The mech is turning to you, laser arm coming round to bear. The rest of the militia has taken up positions at the mech's side and sheltering behind it's armored legs>What Do?

You vector upwards, flying fifty feet up. You turn the power off, arching over the street. You fall slowly, boosting along with vectors. The camera tries to track you, but is partially obscured by the destroyed barrel. It fires a stream of bullets, a belt of large bullets being fed into the barrels.One clips you as you fall, but you remain undamaged for the most part. You land on the back of the mech, grabbing hold of a ridge in it's armor. You start pulling on it's steel, ripping bolts, nuts and liquid metal that was once components in the mech. The metal forms into a long, drawn out spike, pointed at the cockpit of the mech. You solidify the spear, then drive it forward. It stabs through the cockpit's seal, drawing out a groan from inside. You retract the blade, pulling out a bloodstained slab of steel. Cutting through the lock, you fling open the cockpit. You pull the man's body, using it as a shield to stop the bullets of the militia. >Enter the Mech Suit?

You slip into the mech, taking a look over the controls. Two joysticks with two pedals on the floor, a button on the right joystick likely controls the laser, with a sliding lever next to the left joystick. No idea what that does.You sit in the cushioned seat, feet against the pedals. You press a small button, and a curved screen lights up. Three men are facing your mech, armed with ARX-160s. You press the joystick, feeling the arm shift. Then a terrible noise, of grinding gears, echos through the suit.The suit slowly tips over, falling to the street. Your camera blinks out, leaving you in darkness. The hatch opens, and two pairs of hands grab onto you. Despite your strength, they are able to drag to out. The men drag you to the road, other men pointing gun barrels at your head. You feel a pair of handcuffs lock on your arms, then two more pairs. Two more pairs are put on your legs, then two more pairs lock the chains of the handcuffs into a extremely binding net of metal.Four hands drag you to a waiting van, then throw you into the back. A bag is thrown over your head, and the engine starts up. You feel it start to pull out onto the road, heading in the direction of the town. This is not good.>What Do?
>>36233439Try to talk your way out of it. That's worked so well.
>>36233439Ping out for metal see if you can get a rough layout of van and where the guns are. Slowly deform the handcuffs so the lock is broken then break their guns after you're free.

ITT: We find out rolling dice is too hard for anons.
You send out a thought, looking for steel. You detect a small amount in the van, including the bars on the van's side that you are locked to. However, the handcuffs themselves are titanium. Damn aluminum frame cars, they'll be the death of you. Still, the engine block is mainly steel. Perhaps you could mess that up?You try to change the engine block's shape, warping the metal. Without sight and no way to move, its quite a bit harder. Finally, after five minutes of trying, you feel it shift. This is followed by terrible grinding sound, then the engine stops.Without the engine, you can hear a dull murmur, like distant waves crashing on a rocky shore. A crowd?The doors fling open, followed in by a pair of men. Damn it, no metal at all. Looks like they learned from your attack. They grab you by the shirt and handcuffs, dragging you along the ground. Yeah, there is defiantly a crowd. you can hear snatches of conversation, none of them very reassuring. Least so, is a mother's answer to her young sounding son."He's a bad man. He's the one that killed Daddy"The boy's response is perhaps the worst thing possible"Is the sheriff gonna blast him like Eric?That is very reassuring.1/2

You are half carried half dragged up a short flight of steps, knocking against the wood. The hood is ripped off your head, the bright light hurting after so long in darkness. After your eyes adjust, you can make out your surroundings. What looks like a town square is packed to bursting with people. You are on a wooden platform, reminiscent of a gallows. Most gallows, however, don't have a large thing made of metal that looks like a larger version of a laser cannon. On the plus side. a few of your bullet wounds have scabbed over.The man from the road, the sheriff, walks calmly up the stairs. He stands in front of a microphone, badge...steel badge shining in the floodlights."This man is one of the despicable Epics that destroyed our fair town. I shall now read a list of his crimes. Aggravated assault. Vehicular homicide. Grand theft mecha. The use of Epic powers within city limits. Destruction of private property. The killing of two of our guards men, Alfred Scott and Gregory Eisenburg. We, the people of Ridgewood, find this man guilty of the listed crimes. He is to be exacuted today, at 9:38,eastern standard time." The man turns to you, "Any last words from the prisoner?>Well?>Say something>Jet the fuck outta there>Stab him with his own badge>Stab the crowd with the rebar grid under the street>Write Inyou didn't let me post this earlier
>>36234241cant we just move the cuffs and vector shift the links in different directions till they shatter?
>>36234339fine control is a bit hard, but it is possible.
>>36234330>>Jet the fuck outta thereOh look, a completly justified execution.
>>36234361Justified? They attacked us first, what the fuck were we supposed to roll over and die?
>>36234339>Burst your cuffs with steel control, and during the apex of the burst increase their velocity>Stab him with his own badge
>>36234330"please don't make me kill any more, I really just wanted to be on my way. if your men didn't freak our and start shooting they wouldn't be dead, I am begging you please don't make me kill you.
>>36234399forgot >Stab the crowd with the rebar grid under the streetif they don't start letting us go
>>36234330Explain how you freely offered the information of how you were an Epic. You picked up on the cues that that this town had suffered against irresponsible, power-mad Epics and so offered the information that you were one of them freely. You could have been any other sort of Epic that their bullets would have cut down in seconds. Knowing this and the fear Epics engendered in communities, you still told them. And they still responded with fear and threats on your life. You were forced to protect yourself. Now, unless they want to see what an Epic can really do with its back against the wall. They might be inclined to let you be on your way.
>>36234339>>36234395>>36234428Shred these fuckers up
>>36234339>>36234395>>36234428>>36234361Kill them, and then jet the fuck out in the confusion and panic
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>36234330Jet out of there, we can come back and kill later
>>36234330Jet out. Never come back
>>36234330You attacked me first when I wanted to leave in peace. Now you're going to regret hurting me. >Jet the fuck outta there>Stab him with his own badge
>>36234330Say that you work for stealheart and that if they kill you he will wipe this town off the map
>>36234330Dstab him with his badge then jet
>>36234330"Yeah. I was trying to turn my car around when you attacked me, unprovoked, through the use of deadly force. I responded in kind. If you try and kill me again, I WILL respond in kind. Can I please just go, and noone else has to die?"While we talk, get a GOOOD look at what's happening, get a ping on every scrap of metal we have.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>36234656Vote
>>36234656>>36234745>>36234330Looks like a winner to me. Also vote
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>36234656>>36234330Vote. Let's just forget this town, we suck too much right now. (At least the rolls and decisions suck)
>>36234658Talking dose not help much here. Let's just get the fuck out of here
>>36234443No they won't. When most epics are edge lords up the ass, trusting one is not wise
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>36234656Let's just get out of here and continue out trip to NY
>Still trying to talk your way out of itYou guys are hilarious.
>>36234966We're still going to have to get our stuff back, or we're going to have to walk.>>36234970One of the first talk anons when this mess started, I say fuck them their horse their family and their dog. They even look at us with intent they die.
Need an Epic name
>>36235006Why walk when you can fly
>>36235042It was agreed in the last thread that we where named "the inevitable"
>>36235080Ya. That's the one.
>>36235049We can't yet though, need to level up vector more then practice, we just jump good.>>36235042Pretty sure we agreed on Inevitable last thread. Though in this case i think its more reference to our failure than anything else.
>>36235110Regardless it's still inevitable
>>36235042Hunter.Because that's what we do. Hunt down other Epics.
>>36235226No, what we do is fail spectacularly.
>>36235042The Inevitable is good, that or Dick Smasher McIron Cock
>>36235226We rally don't want them to know that though. Whole plan at NYC was to sit on the sidelines record shit and scrounge corpses for power til we got a set up we liked then we go into the open.>>36235251The first one please.
>>36235042scavenger , because we pick at the bodies of dead epics
Hey Calamity, can we ruin Canon?We could kill Steelheart pretty easily.
>>36235251I'm pretty fond of Dick Smasher
"I said I was an Epic by my own will. I saw your warnings to Epics, and still I told the truth. I was forced to defend myself when your so-called guardsmen attacked me. WHO ELECTED YOU JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER? NOW, unless you wish to see how strong Epics are when angered, leave me be." You ping the crowd, searching for metal. The road is a solid grid, like you expected. Various guns and knives are scattered in your range, all good, manipulable steel. The crowd is silent, then starts chanting."FRY!""FRY!""FRY!""FRY!""FRY!""Fine" You say, then blast the two men dragging you with enough force to shoot them twenty feet into the air. They fly into the crowd, which pulls back at the display of power. Puny weaklings, the lot of them. You draw the steel from the sheriff's badge, cutting through his body to stab into the laser. You rip the rebar out of the street, each piece forming into a razor sharp blade. The grid slices up, into the crowd. All of the people within your range fall, soaking the square with red blood.The ones in the back open fire, blasting holes into your clothes. Those were fucking expensive! You jerk your chin, the razor-sharp badge cutting through your bonds. You wave your freed hand through the air, forcing the bullets back. Shooters and bystanders fall to the lead, struck down by their friends and family. You walk slowly forward, a shield of force repelling the bullets. You lift the rest of the steel from beneath the ground, a steel shell forming around you.
Rebar shifts and melts, forming plates and spines. Your fist armor first, two inch spikes jutting from the knuckles. The metal creeps up your limbs, mirror-like surface reflecting the horror stricken faces. Your torso encases in metal, spikes and waving tentacles lining the back. Your face disappears beneath the steel, fingers of liquid metal climbing up your visage. You armor your head in steel, sharp bull horns growing from your head. All that remains of your face are your eyes, staring out from the polished horror. "I AM THE INEVITABLE! ALL SHALL BOW BEFORE ME!"You launch bladed tentacles at the crowd, cutting down the men that would dare to attack an Epic. All cower, pitiful attempts to escape your justice. You stab up at them, leaving the pierced bodies to hang as a testament to your power. You walk down the street, ending any that cross your rampage. You leave the town, steel pikes impaling hanging bodies, blood flowing like rain, power surging through you.End Episode 2XP next post
>>36235286Not really, we don't know if we are afraid of him or not
>>36235365Damn we're gay.
>>36235365Well we gave the poor stupid incompetent idiots the benefit of the doubt multiple times. They reaped what they sowed. Rest in pieces.
>>36235387True, but we could just as easily rig some stuff up with explosives and trick him into using them.
>>36235365did we at least save the young virgin girls like the bible told us to do?
>>36235365Loot the town
MILITIA FIGHTRAMPAGE-----------------------XP GAINED: 150TOTAL XP: 400Allocate Points?
>>36235527Considering this place look like Kharn went through it, I doubt it. We should loot it for weapons, armor, clothes, food and medical supplies.
>>36235540Yes. Grab all the gold
>>36235557Is there a faggotry stat? Though that seems pretty maxed already.
>>36235557Cost for what?
>>36235557Well guys we can buy regen or steel manipulation. Or we could wait for 200 more to level vector or 100 more for invulnerability.
>>36235557Pump it into steel manipulation
>>36235608>improving the worst powerYes, do this.
>>36235557Wait and spend it later
>>36235557I'd say either regen boost or hold onto it.
>>36235624Didn't seem so bad when murdered that entire town with it
>>36235649I'm sure it didn't, retard anon.
>>36235557Ah fuck it, save it
Wait. We can manipulate anything steal... Newcago is made entirely of steal. We might want to increase that power, incase we ever go there
>>36235697steel anon steel not steal
>>36235674I wouldn't cast stones, autist chan
Save it to upgrade power stealing.
>>36235740Keep trying to talk your way out of things, regardless of the situation. It makes things ever so amusing.
>>36235737Regardless it would be useful there
>>36235750Ya lets save it
>>36235766I liked the part where they jumped into a mech they had just finished wrecking, expecting it to work.
>>36235780Yeah lets save it and spend it later. We can spend points mid session right Calamity?>>36235766>>36235831Self righteous trolling autist chan detected.
>>36235831Ya, I have a feeling this is some anons first quest
>>36235850case in point:>>36235846
>>36235846YeahLooks like the majority wants to save it.Any questions or advice?
>>36235869Get better players.
>>36235869Once we have our powers a bit longer we (pc) ought to be able to know what we can and can't do. Also give small exp(like 5) for training our powers. Also learn to ignore the trolls and autists like >>36235892. They want the quest to crash and burn because their assholes.
>>36235869So QM, if we had stuck with trying to talk down the checkpoint guards would leaving without a fight have been possible?Laying out if negotiation actually works or not will cut off a lot of fights in the future.
>>36235953>because their assholesOh retard anon, I can count on you deliver. Keep up making those excellent plans!
>>36235953I don't see why their hemorrhoids would make them dislike the quest
>>36235973Depends on the situation. This was a planned fight(at least the border fight, improved the last part), but most of the time it is up to the players to make good arguments and decide if its smart to fight
>>36235995Because they didn't get their way and have the pc be their ideal of perfection their going to troll and drive away players. if any of them get particularly butthurt over it they'll try to get the pc killed or try to get you or the players banned etc. etc. etc. It's how they get their kicks because they are too pathetic to contribute.>>36236090Fair enough, pretty sure Zach is going to go full murderhobo now though.
>>36236151Wow, your newfag is showing, retard anon.
>>36236151It was mainly the use of his powers and fear. Use the powers to defend yourself, and you get angry. You use the powers to attack anyone that might pose a danger to you. Using the powers make you want to fight more, see more as dangers. Its a cruel cycle, mainly for non-Epics.You can still be good, for an Epic. Just need to stay in check. Your reputation might help, however.
>>36236173Huehuehuehuehue. Whatever autist, feeders like you (among other things) kill quests. You take your sperg and hate and self loathing out on others from the safety of your basement because your too scared pathetic and lazy to do anything remotely constructive. Next time instead of volleying insults try, I dunno contributing like a human being instead of a troglodyte. I know you can't but if you tried you might actually gain some semblance of humanity.>>36236236Gotcha, thanks for running Calamity.
>>36236310>feedersHowever did you wander into 4chan, retard anon? It's obviously new to you.
>>36236310>Hue>Sperg>troglodyteIt's like you channeled every oblivious cancerous shitposter on 4chan into a single post.10/10 - troll, I want you to die in the most horrible of ways.
>>36236356>>36236310Guys, try to keep fighting to a minimum. It's all a game, no need to insult each other. Next thread is Saturday, unless something comes up. I should have a Twitter by then
>>36236453Looking forward to it.
>>36236539I look forward to your continued failures.
