You trudge wearily through the dark, your breath seeming to almost glow against the mottled greys and browns of New York, the winter chill lending it a semblance of New Year’s frost. It’ll be New Year’s soon, won’t it? Or maybe it’s passed you by already, lost somewhere in the blur. You and Remy returned to the Agency earlier. After a few minutes of shuffling around in search of your clothes, you changed out of your party gear, and Remy elected to sleep on the couch up in the main office – something he does often, apparently. He said he’d relay what information you managed to pick up before the night quickly descended into madness. You got the impression that he was pretty beat, and, for a while there… there was this weird sense of familiarity about him. If you had to clamp it down in words, it’d be the feeling of… adriftness. The quality of having no place in the world. Which you understand. You shiver. In the distance, you hear sirens. You briefly wonder how things ended at the gala, after you and Remy split, but it’s all a bit far away now. You’re pretty sure everyone worth talking about got out alright, anyhow. Can’t say the same for the guys upstairs, but they’ve all survived their fair share of knocks. Comes with the territory, from what you understand.>Present Time: 10:23 PM>Hunger Level: 4>Current Funds: $775>[ ] Get back to the station. >[ ] Make your way back to the gala.

By the by guys, I'm supposed to be at a training seminar early tomorrow, but after thinking about it I've realized that I don't really give a fuck. So let's keep this from hitting autosage tonight. Pretty sure it'll be easier to just not sleep than to get up early.

>[X] TabbycatIt strikes you, as you make your way under the shadow of a sleeping apartment building, that you have another in (of sorts) on this situation you’ve found yourself tackling. Ms. Hardy works for Silvermane, right, like Tombstone? You can’t help but wonder if it might be worth stopping by her fine establishment, even if only very briefly. You doubt she’ll talk to you about anything remotely sensitive, but she doesn’t need to, does she? If there’s anything going on over there, all you really need to do is hang around a while, out of sight but not out of earshot. Feels sorta wrong, spying on Ms. Hardy, but it’s a good idea. And you kinda want to know if Tombstone got out. So, taking a moment to orientate yourself, you head off toward the riverside. It doesn’t take you long to arrive at your destination. As usual, the place is like a fire in the night, its doors bathed in bright neon light. Something’s off, though, and you stop yourself on the opposite side of street – the doors are closed, and the queue that normally coils around the front of the club is nowhere to be seen. There’s a bouncer at the door but he’s looking even less hospitable than usual. >[ ] Ask what’s up.>[ ] Lie. Tell him you’re supposed to be inside.>[ ] Try to find a different way in. >[ ] Write in.
>>36354723Yes, I dont want to end up eating anyone again if we somehow get tracked.Also, no sun means no photosynth
>>36354813>Grab food, stake them out.

>>36354818This is New York and we have cash. There will be places open. As for Photosynth, we should really get another level or two into it. I'd like to see if we can get it to two turns in the sun, or even 1. Or possibly even below that.
>>36354813>[ ] Write in.can we SENSES from outside?
>>36354864>>36354813SecondedThen:> Ask what's up.
>>36354813>[x] Try to find a different way in. Exceptional circumstances override etiquette. Do announce before Ms. Hardy before doing any actual spying, though. Don't want to get on her bad side.
>>36354855Thats not even remotely the issue, to the point I wonder if youre being dense on purpose.So hows Marrow doing these days huh?
>>36354813>[ ] Ask what’s up.
>>36354813>>[ ] Ask what’s up.
>[X] Try to find a different way in. You feel your face fall into a frown. You could ghost your way in, but, while a stray breeze could be held accountable for a door swinging abruptly open, you’re not sure it’s much of an explanation when the handle turns first. Still, there’s gotta be another way in – the place has a pretty big kitchen, right? Gotta have somewhere to throw out all that waste. Regulations an’ stuff. Picking your way around the perimeter of the club, you eventually find what you’re fairly certain is the rear entrance – a big, nondescript slate of unmarked iron set into an alley round the back. Seems kinda familiar, too. Maybe you’ve scavenged for scraps back here before. Lord knows, after four years you’ve probably eaten from half the bins in the city. There’s no doorknob, so you guess you normally have to knock to get in. Not an issue for you and your retard strength, of course – but that’s gonna leave a mark. >[ ] JJ stronk. >[ ] Knock, turn invisible.>[ ] Nah no need to freak dudes out.>[ ] Write in.

>>36355197Can you guys elaborate why we're not going this route? We're already here
>[x] Nah no need to freak dudes out.While catching Hardy with her pants down could reveal some useful information, I don't want to antagonize a possible source of underworld gossip/piano. I'm thinking the front door approach was the best one, just subtly suggest we know the score and need to coordinate with Hardy and we're good to go.
>>36354813>[ ] Nah no need to freak dudes out.But, if only other way in:>[ ] Knock, turn invisible.Did you ever set up a Ask like you where considering? Also, thank you for running tonight. your quest has actually inspired some Mutants and mastermind characters of mine.
>[ ] Knock, turn invisible.
>>36355248Aye Crusty is great man. I've actually got a campaign running on a similar premise and my players are loving it.
>>36355242because people changed their minds and decided the risks out weigh the possible if any rewards?
>>36355242That means nothing. It is a none statement.We have completed all specs of the job, we are only here for our own curiosity.
>>36355288Yes, but if Tombstone and Hardy are linked, then they might also be linked to the Jack trade. It'd be worth getting another lead
>[X] Nah no need to freak dudes out.
>>36355121>>[ ] Knock, turn invisble.
>>36355314Shit just went down in a big way, everyone is jumpy etc etc.Frankly if we really want to case hardy we should have just stake out her place and follow anyone interesting who comes out.
>[X] Nah no need to freak dudes out.You guess it’s not really worth it. You’re not a fan of leaving your impression literally stamped in iron on someone’s door, even if there’s no logical way it could lead back to you. All these powers have made your position no less precarious, and you’re not keen on pushing your luck if you don’t have to. Besides, you know something’s up, so Ms. Hardy must be at least connected enough to be in the loop regarding this whole thing. Making your way out of the alley, you head home. Maybe you could stop by once the situation has settled somewhat, and getting in and out is a little easier. The walk is a long one, but you’re not feeling up to flight – not after all the close-calls you’ve ducked under tonight. You feel like your luck should be just about at the end of its tether right now. One push, one spark, and everything comes tumbling down.When you start seeing the Scar jut out through the light, a wall of total darkness against the pinpricks, you breathe an involuntary sigh of relief. You’re tired. Almost automatically, you check your watch. >11:33 PMEurgh, late. On your way through the Scar, you notice something moving through the gloom. The moonlight is perilously thin tonight, but you can pick out the shapes of three distant figures and… a shopping trolley? There's no way they could see you from here, what with you having to squint somewhat to carve their silhouettes out of the background.More homeless folks, you guess.>[ ] Don’t care, ignore.>[ ] Follow.>[ ] Approach, see what’s up.>[ ] Write in.

Not really a problem with that though It how I've ended up playing a Dragon, how can't speak English, in the DC universe and a Marvel mutant, based on more resent 616, how tries really hard not to be creep with the Genetic Mimicry powers. Joyce has even inspired a character just with some beetle characteristics, wings and extra arms, add in.

>[X] ApproachYou decide to say hello. You’re probably gonna be living with these people, after all. You don’t bother keeping quiet – there’s debris everywhere, so you’re might as well be walking of one bigass sheet of broken bottles. As you approach, the figures gain definition, seeming to filter through into reality. It’s a bunch of young girls, probably around Laura’s age, give or take a year. Smell of rust and sweat hangs in the air, and old, stale cotton. So they’re not fresh on the street.“Hey, hey, Sue!” One of them spots you, altering the others. ‘Sue’ (apparently) immediately darts around their trolley, positioning herself between you and it and puffing her chest out in an attempt to be as big and wall-like as possible. She’s like 5’5”, though, so, yeah… “Whaddya you want!?” She demands, her voice shrill. She’s swathed in a baggy, dark hoodie, tufts of pink hair just about evident under its hood. Her eyes are bright, like steel. You glance over her shoulder at the trolley.

>[X] Ask what they’re doing.>[X] Write ins.There are a lot of things you could have said. Clearly, though, you have a knack for getting right to the things that really matter: “You even have electricity?” You ask, nodding vaguely in the direction of their cargo. Apparently this is either a sore issue, or they don’t like your tone, as the one up front all but puts up her dukes, her weight falling into a nervous mimicry of a boxer’s poise. Her friends just look worried, their scents mingling in various shades of apprehension. The one with her hands on the back end of the trolley – little Asian chick with the brightest yellow jacket you’d never want to be seen in – bites her lip anxiously, sweat lubricating her grip on their cargo. “None of your business, dude!” Shouts the one in the hoodie, her voice echoing across the desolation. “This stuff’s ours!

>(1/2)>>36357223>18>IN HIS NAMEJumpy little critters, aren’t they? You raise your hands, falling back on the classic visual indicator of non-violence to stem the conversation’s current flow, and you plumb the back of your skull for words that won’t result in John James Green having to beat up a bunch of shoplifting tweens. You can’t help but notice a little something about the girl at the back – blonde, frayed thing, thin like a rake and just as inappropriately dressed as her friend in yellow, her belly shirt (it’s winter, man), colourful bracelets, and assorted necklaces suggestive of nights spent raving round town with a head full of acid, not scavenging through a literal wasteland. Her eyes coast along the horizon, flickering back and forth between you and everything else, like she’s trying to pick something out of the dark. “Look…” You hold your hands up even higher. Higher means nicer, right? “…It’s just me, alright? And I’m not here to take your stuff. I do pretty fine for myself.” Comparatively speaking, of course.The girl in front watches you a little longer, the steel in her eyes seeming to poke and prod at every facet of your demeanor, before finally opening her mouth:
>>36357737That would actually be interesting to see.I hope the current Dream is Morpheus.
>(2/2)“Alright.” She says that, but she doesn’t drop her guard. Not even slightly. “You a mutant?” Sighing, you push your hood back, letting your ears perk up. “You?” She shakes her head. “Nah. Just a freak.” What? She nods her head slightly towards her friends, keeping her eyes trained on you. “They are.” Fidgeting slightly in, her friend with the ridiculous jacket speaks up: “Sorry, dude.” She grins nervously, in a way that sort of makes you think of, like, Tinkerbell or someone. “A friend of ours got mobbed by some normal types round here. We’re just being, y’know, smart.” You nod. Yeah you guess so. That’s pretty alarming, though.>[ ] That’ll happen when you steal stuff. >[ ] Ask if they need any help. >[ ] Ask if they live in this area.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Multiple.“Your friend get hurt bad?” You ask. They look at one another, and then the kid in yellow nods. “Yeah, pretty bad.” “Sorry.” Yeah… you are sorry. Not just because you’ve been there, but because that spells trouble for everyone. You’re willing to hope that, whoever these assholes were, they just followed what they thought to be a lone mutie into the Exclusion Zone, but if that’s not the case – if people are catching on to what’s brewing down here… “That is kinda what happens when you steal stuff, though.” The girl in front tenses up. You can hear her teeth grinding against one another, the tendons coursing angrily in her arms and legs, like iron lengths being stretched to their limits. Lots of anger there. Yellow Jacket smiles and waves her hand, as if brushing the issue aside. “Yeah, Jono said so”– There’s something infectious about the enthusiasm in her tone. Like she’s radiating warmth. –“but he said we had to, so we could, like, get ourselves started up! He says we can’t stay here forever, y’know?” Jono. You’ve heard that name. “That’s enough, Jubes.” Says the girl in the hoodie, interrupting. She holds out her hand. “Susan Marko. My friends're Jubes and Kiden.” You shake. Her palms are rough, like sand. “JJ.” You say. You nod in the direction of the trolley. “You girls need any help with that?” They look to one another. A few minutes later, you’re pushing this stupid-ass trolley through the shambles of the Scar, wishing you’d just bit your tongue off there. Your companions are mostly quiet – you think the Scar actually spooks them a little – but eventually the blonde one, Kiden, raises her voice: “Sooo… you live here too?

>[X] “Yeah.” >[X] Write in.“S’okay.” Is your response. The billowing dark of the Scar seems to flow in to cut you off, as if to illustrate the abruptness of your answer.It’s not that you don’t trust these three – it’s more that you don’t trust anyone. Paranoia isn’t paranoia when just over half the world really is out to get you, and if the last few weeks have taught you anything, it’s that you’ve generally been right to err on the side of caution. Erring anywhere else get you cut, burned, stabbed, shot, beaten, trapped in cocoons, shot, de-eyed, strangled, electrocuted, shot, shot, shot, God, you wish people would just stop shooting at you. You’d be entirely okay with a 15-20% increase in electrocutions if the shooting would ease up a bit. Kiden coughs, her chest shaking. The night turns overhead. “Um…” ‘Jubes’ now. You wonder what that’s short for. “…You been here long?” You look down at her, suddenly feeling ever so tired. Her eyes sparkle up at you, young and bright and free of compromise. She seems sort of confused by the look on your face.“Four years.” You say. You feel them look at one another, you feel their breath slimming. The awkward silence trundles on a while, interrupted occasionally by Kiden coughing. “You alone?” Asks Susan, suddenly. Her voice is dry and cold, and dreadful. She looks at you as though looking into the future.

>[X] "No." Elaborate.“No.” You say, smiling very slightly. “No, I’m not.” You tell them about things. Nothing much, at first, but you find yourself opening up further the more you say – like every word eases the doors just a little wider, the hinges turning just a little freer. You tell them a little about a guy you found sleeping an old furniture store. About a kid that ran away from home. About a chick with the most insane lightning crap going on. About someone that found you. About someone you saved. About a girl with claws. It passes the time. Eventually, Susan cuts in, her brow furrowed below the line of her hoodie. “Hey, are you… the lizard guy?” What. “What?” “Uh, it’s just…” She shrugs, looking a little like she’s been caught under a floodlight. “This stuff… you kinda sound like someone a friend of mine ran into…” Ah.>[ ] Probably not. >[ ] Maybe. >[ ] No I’m not lizard at all, I am an owl, hoooooo>[ ] Was your friend a gigantic bitch with bones poking everywhere?>[ ] Write in.

>>36359705write it anon it is your calling

>>36359727>NOT MERELY PROCLAIMING TO THE WORLD OUR TRUE IDENTITY, VICTOR VON DOOM
>>36359746I'm all for getting echolocation, and getting agility 5
>>36359705I thought Monster!JJ and TriggerScent!Laura would be a more interesting pairing.
>>36359543something like that
>>36359723On the plus side, she'd be able to touch the baby. Part of why how projectile energy powers or certain contact powers don't effect close genetic relatives (Scott and Havok, Black Tom and Banshee)
>>36359746Echolocation > Eye Beams 3 > Armblades into Prehensile Armblades, for me anyway.
>>36359805I've been wondering, what happens if she touches Kevin?
>>36359746still want that healing vitae, not against moar eye lazers though
>>36359841dude, nah, we need next wings bad. then we can flip people off while we fly around, being cool. also mid air martial arts and perfect targeting for aerial projectile bombardments
>>36359884I'm pretty much there with you. 60/40 HealingVitae/EyeBeams.
>>36359802You know, pretty soon we'll just be that crazy lizard elf who goes around proclaiming to be Doctor Doom.Eventually Doom might grow annoyed or curious, and we'll have to explain to him its to make people dismiss us or think we're crazy. For what is more easily dismissed than a mad and seemingly harmless vagabond tramp who clearly is not DOOM but suffers from delusions of grandeur>>36359870In this case, I would posit Kevpn loses. His powers will be immediately counteracted by power mimicry, only a little rot at most happens. And he keeps getting drained by her.Not a fun time, aside from the contact.
>>36359884I'll vote for it if I'm still conscious when the vote goes down.. but that's unlikely.
>>36359884What if we could get them both, and then shoot pressurized healing blood out of our eyes?Or we could get more eye lasers and become even more Right.
>>36359934>and then shoot pressurized healing blood out of our eyes?That sounds painful, for everyone involved.

>[X] Maybe. >[X] Was your friend a gigantic bitch with bones poking everywhere?“Maybe.” You mutter, grimacing a little. The sensation of shifting skin and twisting bone returns to you, a memory made of burning edges and unwholesome, endless fury. “Was your friend a gigantic bitch with bones poking everywhere?” She looks shocked for a moment, but it fades quickly. “No.” She says, looking down. “I don’t think Sarah has any real friends. She’s like you.” Oh, really. That’s nice. The little psychopath is just like you, huh? “She’s been on her own longer than any of us.” Food for thought, you guess.“Anyhow, I was talking about Megan.” You blink. “The pixie girl.” Interjects Jubes, grinning knowingly. “She hangs out with one of your friends, right?” Oh. Yeah. You saw her with Laura. “Yeah…” Says Kiden, pausing to cough quietly. “…That should be interesting…” …Okay? >[ ] Is there something you’re missing here?>[ ] This is getting weird.

>>36360149It's n-not like I stabbed you because I care about you, b-baka!
>>36360139I'm pretty sure Pixie might just be known for giving relationship advice, and they had a "girl talk" about JJ.

Anyhow, what’s up with you?” >“Training.” You say.>She raises an eyebrow. “Ah…” Sighing, she lifts herself up out of the snow and stretches her back, yawning quietly. “Yeah, well, you can count me out of that…” https://archive.moe/tg/thread/34298319/#34301686kinda vague. tbqh

>(1/2)>[X] …Maximum Density “No…” Arts and crafts? What? “We don’t really need scissors, one of my friends has these long claw things…” The silence rushes in. You feel stares burning into your back. “Dude…” Jubes whistles. “That’s the most precious thing anyone has ever said.” She turns to her friends. “You guys heard that, right?” “I heard.” Says Kiden, staring straight ahead. “I’m not sure I believe.”…Is this one of those things you skipped in school? A science thing? You flick through your ancient memories of classrooms and overstuffed learnin’ books, a hot, embarrassed pressure growing in your stomach. You hate it when this happens. Victoria once laughed at you for like a whole hour when you didn’t know what ‘mnemonic’ meant. Jubes stretches as far as her tiptoes will take her, suddenly whispering in your ear. Oh. Oh no. You’re imagining it now. Susan shrugs. “It won’t last. She does this all the time.” She lifts one eyebrow, eyes recollecting. “Hell, for a week she thought I was hottest thing since bell pepper.” Right. You take them a little further, but eventually you decide the hour is wearing thin and you’re trekking a bit too far from the station for your liking, and you see them on their way. It takes like twenty minutes for that dumb yellow coat to vanish into the dark. You head home.

Time for JJ to be territorial?
>>36361267Naah. Just spend more time with Laura.
>>36361265why, because a pixie has a crush?
>>36361267Yes, pee on her.
>>36361292brag about how careful we were. Just because she asked JJ to."I almost bought internet stock on margin, but then I remembered you...">the laura goes sploosh
>>36361333 Goddammit why are there so many racy pictures of Laura?
>>36361181Nobody ever will believe what this man already got laid once.Nobody.
>>36361181>Oh no. You’re imagining it now. Oh Yes.
>>36361387To be fair JJ's first time was him trying to not pass out from being terrified of fire as a woman who vomits napalm raped him
We're on Page 9
>>36361333im very, very interested just what picture of laura could have been good enough to get itself deleted that quickly
>>36361490It had, like, 5% of a nipple exposed.
>>36361490>>36361527I just noticed a slight hinting of areola and mods on tg are in a bit of a nazi modo atm so i decided to play it safeyou can still probably nab it on the archive formerly known as foolz if you really want it. nothing spectacular
>>36361490>>36361527It's still up on my screen.
>>36361527huh. ive seen way worse than that in cheesecake threads
>>36361527Seriously, that was some lightning reflexes for deleting that pic. And here I was too slow to open it...
>(2/2) The station is dark by the time you get back, the fire of the stove lingering only as a residual fugue of dissipating heat. You descend the steps in silence, your brain sizzling quietly. You can’t help but grin a little – you can’t get the absurdity of what Jubes said out of your head. Could be useful to have a teleporter around, though. One that isn’t terrified of her abilities and/or liable to drop you in another dimension. You count the clustered heat signatures. Everyone’s present and accounted for. Crawling into your tent (you can’t believe you’re living in a tent in a subway station in a giant ass ruin-land, where did your hobo life go so askew?), you curl yourself away into the dark, shutting your eyes. The day burns behind them, passing by in flashes of bright blue fire. It streaks outward, distending into its composites, tiny smatters of colour and sound and rushing light. Like embers, they fall away into nothing. “Are you hurt?” You hear, breathed carefully low, across the tide of closing sleep.You mutter; you think you mutter no, you’re not sure. “Good.” Your dreams are warm.---------------------------------------------------->HMQ 92: END>Congratulations!

>>36361590Eye beams 3
>>36361619Pretty sure not even /tg/s mods would ban you for that.
>>36361590Thanks for running Crusty!
>>36361649I think we only have 2 points
>>36361590how many X-points we got?
>>36361652They killed MSQ (unjustly imho)they killed the QTGnot leaving nuthin' to chance with the surge in activity and the new found anti-lewd pushing
>>36361590Thanks for running yo.
>>36361590Since we now have a total of 1 X Point, bank.
>>36361680>>36361686Three now.Next thread should be on the weekend. In fact I have an announcement regarding thread regularity, which I'll make after I get myself a nice hot tea.
>>36361719healing vitae. lets get that out of the way
Taser HandsTaser HandsThey do whatever a taser hand can
>>36361590Thanks for running Crusty, always looking forwards to these threads. Have a lizard
>>36361692It's just a mad janitor deleting QTGs, not a mod.
>>36361719The pastebin says we started this day's thread with 0 banked X-Points.
>>36361719Echolocation or eye beams pls
>>36361699Never mind this, 3 points means Taserhands! Your time is now!>>36361590
>>36361590beam me up scotty
>>36361771Echolocation is infinitely more useful.
>>36361719taser or beam upgradewe need to buff our current powers, no new shit. we need some actual punch
Eye beams.Alternatively, bank.
>>36361719Echolocation. Too many insanely good uses for it to pass up.
>>36361789Yes, but it's been so long since Tasers got love, and also I don't want to change my vote a third time but I would still happily vote for Echolocation.
I don't want enhanced kinesics right now, but it would make a fair amount of sense after dat density
>>36361735We haven't gotten healing vitae yet? Fuck let's get that now. We've got an entire posse of untrained muggas fully capable of crackbitching at any time. Plus it puts us another step towards unlocking the Joshua Tree.
>>36361810Isn't healing vitae.. a way to heal those who can't heal themselves? I mean.. it'd be useful for when people who don't regenerate get fucked up.
>>36361590WHo was inside our tent?
>>36361819Someday, Agility 5.Someday.
>>36361834>Plus it puts us another step towards unlocking the Joshua Tree.One more reason to get Echolocation instead
>We are a strange mix of of Taskmaster, Spiderman, Daredevil, and Cyclopsit's not even fair for muggas
Whoa whoa whoa, one sec, looking at the previous threads...You have two X-Points, including today's. You spent two the thread before last to make yourself more Rightclops-like (understandable), which I'd forgotten.
>>36361822Such as? JJ already possesses perfect night vision and ridiculously fine senses. Echolocation is pretty redundant.
>>36361848With any luck Laura. Otherwise someone else on the team has gone terse on us.
>>36361826I really want to grab it at some point. With JJ's senses and Kinesics his perceptive ability when it comes to people would skyrocket, which has many, many uses.>>36361834>Joshua TreeFuck no, I will fight that every step of the way.
>>36361789we have senses five, and heat vision, we can save echolocation for later. for now, upgrade our current powers. anything else is just dumb
>>36361871animal affinitysettle the utility shit once and for all
Genetic Mimicry, bank for two threads, then Healing Vitae.
>>36361871Oh. Bank then.Thanks for running CrustyJ!
>>36361871Wellp, I'm back to banking. Sorry, Tasers. Now is not your time.
>>36361871Either Bank or Electrostatic Touch Rank 2.
>>36361848Was it not obvious?
>>36361879>muh autism and blood phobia demand it
>>36361856>We are a strange mix of of Taskmaster, Spiderman, Daredevil, and Cyclops if they all suckedFtfy
Hey everyone, I just realized if we unlocked level 3 claws and fangs warp-spasm would be available for purchase. Something to go for?
>>36361875>not greeting JJ naked under a bed of handpicked fresh flowers
>>36361839Then they get fucked up.Vitae isn't worth shit before you get regen up to the level 4, and that's requires investment into Photo which the thread collectively ignores ever since we just got it to the rank where it's still mostly useless, but is one rank from being actually useful.
>>36361919>magneto fondles his balls in public.gif
>>36361952If that would allow us to go beast mode while actually remaining in control, then I would support it. If not, then pass.
>>36361834the joshua tree is a path that exists solely to get all of us murdered horribly. no.
>>36361982Crusty has said that it would give JJ minor control under the effects.
>>36361990>my wild speculation is fact
>>36361919Seriously it was?
>>36361990>>36361999Its like I'm playing strike witches quest
>>36361956>Handpicked fresh Joshua Tree flowersThat was a pretty bad spelling error, but I fixed it right up.
>>36361952I'd go for it. Hulking out to Godzilla would be great.
>>36361873We can use it with a vision that maps projectile movements so it's actually really useful.
>>36361994I suppose then that it could be useful to make sure JJ's next spasm doesn't result in him partially eating someone, but I'd rather try to avoid hulking out to begin with.
>>36362027why would anyone play a text adventure based off furry pantsu shots the anime?
>>36362027Fuel or rockets?
>>36362049It really isn't much of a "Stealth powerset" ability.
>>36361873It stacks with geo vision which means it's a huge boost to dodge
>>36361873Echolocation works in conjunction with Geointuitive Vision. That alone is fantastic, but it basically gives us Daredevil Vision in a 360 degree radius around us. It's definitely not redundant.
its an expensive way to do almost nothing useful. healing vitae is fine. the tree path is a waste of time for how we actually play the game. unless we want X Men Mutant Science And Philosophy Quest?
>>36361871>Electrostatic Cloud GenKnock out all security cameras in the area? Yes please.
Okay so, quick numbered vote, then announcement. Remember the rules guys. No quoting, no greentexting, nothing but the number.Post, >1 for ELECTROSTATIC TOUCH>2 for ANIMAL AFFINITY>3 to BANK
>>36362076No, it changes his powerset from "Stealth" to "Stealth until you want to put another Scar in the city"
>>36362105Ecolocation you ass
>>36362049It certainly isn't preferable what with the cannibalism and what have you, but as a emergency power its damned handy and I'd rather have JJ retain a modicum of self control in such a state.
>>36362160>>36362147>>36362126You fuckers are dumb.
>>363621241 point short>>36362126Pic related.
>>36362105Echolocation had like 5 people wanting to buy it
>>36362124Oh man, sorry, I went with stuff people posited after the number of points changed.Don't worry, you'll get another chance. Echolocation is one of the extraps I was certain you guys would pick up eventually.
>>36362203And costs 3 points instead of 2. Trust the Crusty.
Echolocation costs 3, Crusty said we had 3 Xpoints
>>36362160>>36362124>only dos puntoswill I become stupid if I back echo too?
>>36362124>>36362160>>36362203We only have two points. Echolocation costs three.You'll want to join the bankers guild.
>>36362203>>36362160Echolocation requires 3 points, we only have 2.
>>36362216I hope we get it soon, anyhow.Oh, I have an idea for extrapolatives in general: If JJ trains or uses his powers in certain ways, some extrapolatives become cheaper and others might become more expensive.
>>36362216>stay awake way past bedtime for vote>my vote does not even matterthanks Crustyyes I salty
>>363622262 including the one from today.1 from later +1 from now = 2 Fool
Think Bank won, so probably Echolocation next thread.
>>36362250So close. Bank takes it, 9-5-10>>36362116>>36362131>>36362132>>36362133>>36362162>>36362164>>36362172>>36362188>>36362212>>36362114>>36362141>>36362157>>36362163>>36362204>>36362120>>36362121>>36362129>>36362138>>36362148>>36362153>>36362165>>36362196>>36362198>>36362211
>>36362288You wanted to say, eye lasers.
The BANK wins.>>36362261Sorry for the misleading number of X-points earlier, mate, you guys just didn't have the points after I realized you'd gone further Rightclops earlier.
>>36362310Actually you're right, I really do want to pump up Eye Lasers to the point where we can make them change direction in mid-air. Imagine that trick in conjunction with Geointuitive Vision.
>>36362288laser and vitae fags would like a word with you
>>36362347>vitae fags>Joshua tree fags
poor tazer bros, they try to so hard.I don't hate tazer myself, but I just feel strength 3 filled all our melee needs
>>36362369 JJ is a druid. Even if Mimicry, he is still a druid. No care for wizards.
>>36362369>stop liking what I don't like
>>36362347>Vitaefagsliterally a less popular and more annoying Phasebros, but less annoying and salty then sonicfags.
>>36362396If anything he's a Factotum.
>>36362380I still think about phasing every time we vote, or when it seems even remotely useful. But it would've been nice back at the Tabbycat.
>>36362409nah. hes an illithid savant
>>36362412You stab me right in the heart.
>>36362412It would've led to a very different build, that's for sure. Agility wouldn't have been nearly as important with phasing.
Right so ANNOUNCEMENT TIME. Basically, I fucking love questing, this shit has been dope as fuck. Work is making it less and less viable to run for significant hours during the week, though, so rather than messing things up trying to make time, I'm going to start just running HMQ on weekends. Hopefully then I can avoid getting things all disorderly and throw this stuff out like clockwork. That said, I really enjoy questing, so during the week I might start running a quest on anonib as well, seeing as - if I'm understanding shit right - that site's format allows QMs to just pop in, drop an update, and pop out, and everyone votes in the meantime.All this shit will of course be more flexible during holidays. I should be able to increase the dosage of HMQ for a bit during the run up to Christmas, for example, which will be cool.
>>36362406tbqh the most of the shitposting I've seen about Vitae is from anti vitae fags.
>>36362412I was annoyed I wasn't present to suggest finding some random opening to (finally) use our contortionist power to wriggle through. But we got to talk with Jubilee, so it all worked out.
>>36362406I just want to be able to heal our weaker party members... is that wrong?
>>36362474Its not karate so apparently yes
>>36362462When you say 'run a quest', you mean a different quest, right?
>>36362462Something on Anon might be okay.I do like the idea of playing HMQ on the weekends.And, if you have time during the week, you run the Sidequest again? Not necessarily about Joyce each time, though. It could also be a way of writing omakes for a bit.
>>36362462>anonibJesus, how did I write anonib instead of snonkun?Does anonib even exist anymore?
>>36362462>Regularly scheduled Homeless Mutant Quest.
>>36362462this>>36362523any deets?also page 10 hurry mugga
>>36362462I just googled anonib, and that shit didn't seem like the kind of place I want to associate with.
>>36362474Come again when we have Photo 4. Then we will talk.
>>36362462Any idea what the quest will be about?
>>36362531its a porn site.
>>36362462Whatever fits your schedule man. Your writing and QMing is worth the wait.
>>36362531u mean A-kun?
>>36362536Yeah, you don't.See >>36362531I meant anonkun. anonib was one of the many sites that tried to be 4chan and failed utterly.
>>36362474Honestly, Healing Vitae just isn't quite powerful enough to be worth it yet. If we got Photosynthesis high enough to boost our own Regeneration to 4 and Healing Vitae to 3, then I would actually vote for it.
>>36362583I doubt anyone's arm has to be twisted to vote for upping photo, what is the problem?
>>36362555We all do anon, we all do.
>>36362531>snonkunI can't be this tired, I don't feel this tired.>>36362523Yeah it'd be a different quest. Possibly same universe, possible not.
>>36362536>the have a furry bara boardlooks like a bunch of porn
>>36362641put down the teapick up the coffee make it a DC quest
>>36362675That'd be fun.Normal, everyday person's metahuman gene activates and they become a superhero. Or a supervillain.
>>36362583Um, since Healing Vitae only dip transfers a portion of our healing factor and not our photo synthetic capabilities I'm pretty sure it's never going to provide more than Healing Factor 2 to whatever injured party we're feeding our blood to.
>>36362474It's not even close to worth it until we get photosynth to 4.Lets do that first.
Marrow's name is Samantha in the pastebin but you said Sarah.
>>36362690>post yfw Cadmus Quest
>>36362629Every other power we want is a problem.It's also costs seven points, and even if Photo 4 is one of the best powers we can get, it's still pretty big investment.It's annoying, since it's really stuck in that awkward spot between being useless and useful, like dermal armor.Rising Dermal Armor up to level three is easier, though...
>>36362641Wealthy Mutant Quest?
>>36362707Healing Vitae specifically says that it functions at one rank below his current Healing Factor level. If he were to use stored sunlight to boost his Healing Factor level, it would therefore also boost his Healing Vitae's potency.
>>36362641will there be smut?
>>36362772Lower middle class Flatscan quest
>>36362707Nope, anon. Was worried about the same thing, so I asked few threads ago.We can boost regen up to 4, and use enchanced regen to produce supercharged Vitae that way.
>>36362729Here ya go
>>36362546>>36362583>>36362717Allright. I'm just worried one of them is going to be horribly injured and then what do we do? Hell if we get it up there we might be able to heal the damage our electric friend has picked up on our behalf.
>>36362798Actually, we could technically just get Vitae + Photo 4.
>>36362798Nice. Not sure if that changes the order of my want list (it might, but I still feel guilty about Surge's burns. Hope that girl has a super metabolism based healing factor that I don't know about), but it might. Thanks for ask ping and passing the info along.
>>36362778in the 90 plus threads, there has only been one smut pastebin fic posted and he was chased outta here. (not very good tbqh though)in fact, I only recall two pastebin fan things total and both were told to fuck off.therefore>HMQ hates player write ups
>>36362726I'm glad someone caught that. What does it meeaaaannnn? >>36362772Pffft.>>36362778Sex is always a possibility. Most sex scenes I write will end up like the one in JJ's flashback with Victoria, though. Even if longer and more explicit, I'll be honest, I'm not likely to write straight up porn.
>>36362863>What does it meeaaaannnn?You're tired and senile?
>>36362863It means the chick they're friends with is one of those girls we went crazy on that's been JJ mutated. That's.. my guess anyway.
>>36362863either Marrow has another name that she goes by or there's another mutant with similar abilities?
>>36362838That... is what I am saying?I think. Words are kind of blurring together, at this point.
>>36362856Surge does not, she go can go fast when she gets her control down though>>36362863my favorite QMs are skittish about writing smutmy favorite smut quest is banned for "off topic" (new mods a shit) fugg
>>36362863But crusty your writing is already porn to me
>>36362904so we vote for photo 4?Supah charge ?
>>36362863Too late! I'VE ALREADY PLEASURED MYSELF TO THOSE HANDHOLDING SCENES! MUHAHAHA!
>>36362965Getting to Photo 4 isn't a big priority for me. Personally I'd even vote for Elbow Blades + Spines (2 points total) to give JJ retractable, prehensile weapons/tools before going for Photo/Vitae.I'd also love to get that retractable prehensile tail extrapolative.
Photosynthetic Biology: Why aren't we having JJ learn the Ripple? Electric Lizard-Elf Overdrive
>>36363013finger knives,tazer hands, and supah strength are enough melee4me.branch out mugga
>>36362914Just find XS's stuff.
>>36362965If enough anons will, sure, I'll throw my hat in, too.
>>36363068the qm with the lesbian dragon bodyguard quest?
>>36363064Nah, I'm not satisfied with that. Anything that makes JJ a trickier combatant is a top notch buy in my book. To say nothing of the fact that gaining three additional prehensile limbs has many applications beyond melee combat.
>>36362965Eh. I've got nine things I'd like to get before we go for photo 4.Admittedly, the third is photo 3...
>>36363132The Subdermal Armor drives me mad.One level before we finally have defense against bullets. No more dying to a granny with a shotgun.
>>36363086Not him but yeah XS does decent smut. Also weird smut. Hence my recommendation for the Kaiju romp.
>>36362863Any idea when you'd start the second Quest? Also, Really enjoyed the Joyce side quest. Wouldn't mind seeing some more of that.
>>36363183I think people have been justifying putting that on the back burner because they wanted to just avoid getting shot to begin with, but that clearly hasn't been working.
>>36363086One quest filled with happiness, sunshine and rainbows; one about the grim and dark cyberpunk future. With Cthulu; and one about an immortal serial killer.Fairly excellent writing quality, almost on par with Crusty's best.
>>36363313did they get over losing the arm?
>>36363229It's more that Sub-dermal suggest that shit will hit the fan. People still think we have a chance.
would HMQ playerbase vote for an extrpolative that gives a JJ a larger dick
>>36363651I'd vote for one that would give him two.
>>36363651not if it shoots fire
>>36363715The amount snakes have.
>>36363715Side by side or top and bottom?
>>36363350I'd suggest reading the quest, especially because XS has it mostly copied to 4 pastebins.
>>36363748Two bitches at once or one bitch twice
>>36363748Side by side; with some spacing between them.
