It’s an uneasy, speckled sort of morning, the sky flecked with lingering spots of pregnant grey. You feel as though it could change at any moment – the clouds could move in and block out everything, or a sudden rush of northerly air could send them careening into the horizon, leaving nothing but clear blue in all directions.A few paces ahead, Layla roots around amidst the wreckage of the old school out to the northern edge. She’s surprisingly nimble, and what she lacks in finesse she makes up with the ability to literally catch herself when she falls.Gaby watches in silence, her long ears twitching occasionally. You always wondered what these two did on their walks.You sit down on a conveniently angled sheet of uprooted lockers. Gaby perches a little further back. You never noticed before, but… she doesn’t blink often, does she? You didn’t come out here with them to make silent observations about Gaby’s weirdness, though. There was some stuff you wanted to talk about.>Present Time: 11:10 AM>Hunger Level: 3>Current Funds: $1,600>[ ] Are the horns cool?

We were given them
>>39092549Go read the archives newbie.
>>39092233>[ ] You’ve been feeling weird lately. Has she been feeling weird?
>>39092549they were free
>>39092585I know when we got them, I just never understood why... Also I've been here for over half the quest. >>39092607That would be why I guess... /tg/ can't resist free.
>>39092549because CJ gave them to us for free newfriend
Did our relationship level with Layla go from 2 to 3 or 3 to 4 last thread?
>>39092664pretty sure its supposed to be 4
>>39092664We had it at 3, it should be 4 now.
>>39092676That;s what I thought, but I wasn't 100%
>>39092683>>39092676>>39092664Layla waifu route confirmed!
Should we put the idea of making a time bank in scar on the next hobo council?
Uh, this a long post, just wait a mo guys.
>>39092610then go reread. Its not hard.
Crusty's next post is long, strong, and about to get the fiction on
>>39092746So you don't want the mutants getting organized and trading services with each other?
>>39092779Laura isn't even with us so if its smut its either pedophelia or pseudo-beastiality.
It's about time we talk to Gabby. I didn't realize until last thread that our relationship level with her is at 2 despite living with her for this long. Lucas get's a pass because he's still relatively new.Why the fuck is there a poorly drawn pin on the bottom of my screen right now?
>>39092811What pin? I don't see a pin. Are you sure you don't have malware?
>>39092785there isn't enough money in the scar and the situation is too fragile/volatile for that.and people think Druid is stupid...
>>39092838Time bank doesn't work on money dumbass.
>(1/2)>[X] Are the horns cool? Is it okay that you literally look like Satan now?“Hey.” A little reluctantly, Gaby tears her gaze away from Layla. Her ears perk up slightly, as if to say “What’s up?” You immediately feel an odd little unease come over you – what do you say here? That you’re concerned about how Satan-like you look? It almost seems ridiculous that you’d even have to bring it up. In a way, some part of you can’t help but be a little exasperated with the whole thing; with being here, with even thinking this. Nobody else had a problem with the horns. You had more of a problem with them than most of your friends. “Uh…” You cough awkwardly. “I couldn’t help but notice you looking a little, I dunno, weirded out earlier.” She blinks. It’s a slow, entirely deliberate motion. Does she have some kind of… film… over her eyes? You point up at the horns cresting back over your head. “It’s not these things, is it?” Any mystery in Gaby’s expression evaporates, her face contorting in quiet embarrassment. “Y-you noticed that…” She smiles nervously, her nose twitching. “They will, ah, take some getting used to. You look like a satyr.” You’re sorry, but what? That wasn’t the s-word you were expecting. “…Excuse me?”“Um, a satyr. One of the children of Dionysus, the god of”– “Yeah, I know.” You cut in. You can’t help but laugh a little under your breath. “I just… didn’t think about that, I guess.”
>(2/2)Dionysus. God of partying extremely, unnecessarily hard. God of intoxicants and being intoxicated. You chuckle. “…Couldn’t be further from the truth, really.” Gaby cocks her head to one side, one ear rising expectantly. You weren’t really expecting that, but now you have to keep going. “Well, you met my dad. He wasn’t exactly a party animal.” “Oh!” She smiles nervously, but broadly. “Well, that is true. Dionysus wasn’t just the god of fun, though. He was the god of, um, how would you…” She grapples with her thoughts for a moment, and the word comes to you. Madness. Dionysus, god of madness.“Enlightenment!” You blink, finding yourself surprised for the second time this morning. “Sort of, like, um, finding truth in sensation, you know?” Oh. “Ecstasy.” She snaps her fingers. “Yes!” >[ ] You weren’t really expecting her to know so much about Greek myth.>[ ] Ask her if her mutant… changes… were all at once or separate like yours.>[ ] Ask her if she’s had any bad dreams recently.>[ ] Write in.

>>39092884>>[ ] Ask her if her mutant… changes… were all at once or separate like yours.We should probably be extremely concerned. If it wasn't for deus ex machina we would literally be a giant tumor right now. A giant dead tumor.

>>39092944Laura is under age though
>>39092944Yes Greek mythology.Not really a difference.
>>39092944But only if its actually child porn and not just smut that doesn't have a child age put on it although its blatantly under 18, or if the fictional age of consent in a setting is under 18.
>>39092838>Confirmed for talking out of his ass.http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-based_currency
>>39092811Yea, I've got that as well. Don't be alarmed
>>39092884>[ ] You weren’t really expecting her to know so much about Greek myth.Small talk comes before business.>[ ] Ask her if her mutant… changes… were all at once or separate like yours.Why do you only post good suggestions? No one can ever decide which one to go with.
>>39092972Depends on the state. I'm pretty sure it's still legal as long as they're within 3 years of each other. (Which they are)
>>3909297215 is Lauras age in this isen't it? Not really a kid anymore, shes a teenager, even if American law is really anal about it despite it being only like what, 2/3 years age difference?
>>39092999again, nah not really interested.JJ should be more focused on ending Jack and not eating people.and the Scar isn't going to last forever.that and I like adventure more management.
16 wasn't it?
>>39092884>>[ ] You weren’t really expecting her to know so much about Greek myth.>>[ ] Ask her if her mutant… changes… were all at once or separate like yours.
>>39093080It's not like we'd be running it ourselves.
>>39093078She turns 16 in less than a month (in universe). Not sure why it matters tho.

>>39093110I think her birthday is in February so its closewe should start thinking about presents
>>39093136Its only a problem if it's child porn, in which case mods should delete it. But its fine with this quest since the characters depicted are within a close age and its not something lower like 11 or 12.
>>39092973Depends on selecting the myth i suppose.
>>39093136I mean it doesn't really matter but at the moment it's breaking the "half your age plus seven" guideline
>>39093136She was "created" in February and it's currently mid January. I wonder how Laura will react to her first ever clone day party.
>>39093177tell that to the anon that archived thread 100
>>39093177Written descriptions of sex between children and between a child and an adult ought to be fine so far as I'm concerned. They're fictional.
>>39093177I mean, if it's written then there's no issue since text is always safe for work
>>39093233That was troll archiving.>>39093268Between a child and an adult is not fine in my book unless its close ages within a few years, but that is just me and i would not try to enforce that on others, unlike a mod.
>>39093144>>39093214I like the birthday discussion more. what should we get her? Piano lessons? home(less)made cookies baked by JJ and Elf powers maybe? a hot dicking?
>[X] You weren’t really expecting her to know so much about Greek myth.>[X] Ask her if her mutant… changes… were all at once or separate like yours.Huh. “Didn’t really expect that. The Greek myth infodump.” She shrugs. A familiar, faraway look enters her eyes, and you know what’s coming next. “Dr. Green told me some stories.” Of course. “And he said it was important, too.” Right. Of course, of course. It occurs to you, momentarily, that these were the same sorts of stories your mother told you. Was he… copying her, or something? You put it out of mind. “Right, right…” Moving on. As quickly as humanly possible. “So, did you, uh… did you get your… changes… like this? One at a time?” Gaby shifts awkwardly, the luster leaving her eyes. Her tail coils almost protectively around her, and you think you see a slight crackle of electricity running along the thin, clear line of fin-like hairs that trails across one side of it. “N-no, not… not exactly.” Even behind her fur, you can see her cheeks redden. “The first changes were, I thought, something medical. My, um…” She wraps her arms tight around her chest. “…certain areas began to shrink.” Oh. Right. “Then everything started at once. The fur came in, and the tail, and my nose changed… it wasn't overnight, but it all started at the same time.”Huh. Totally different from your experience, then. “I don’t know how you can be so calm about it.” She continues. “Don’t you ever feel like… like you’re changing into something that isn’t you? That you’ll wake up one day, and it won’t be you anymore. You’ll be something else.” >[ ] You try not to think about that. >[ ] You feel like that all the time.>[ ] You don’t feel like that, it didn’t occur to you up until now.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] You don’t feel like thatYou know what she means. The alien instincts, the appetites, the changes in the way you see and feel and smell and understand the world. Still, you think she might be being a little bit dramatic. “Not… not exactly.” You say, rolling your shoulders as though that’ll help circulate the thoughts through your head. “I mean, I get where you’re coming from. It’s just my body, though, it’s not my mind.” You tap a scaled finger against the side of your head. “We’re still the same up here.”It occurs to you, as the words come out, that the brain is an organ, subject to the same material pulls and pushes as the rest of you. You flatten the thought down for now and tidy it away into the corner of your mind. Gaby smiles, an uncertain curve to the expression, as though she’s not sure if she should even be smiling. “It worries me.” She says. “I think about it all the ti”– “Woo!” Layla – two Laylas, actually – emerge from the ruins. Both of them are wearing ill-fitted, scuffed-up baseball caps, and a heavy metallic bat trails beside the one to the left. Her other self has a gently scorched catcher’s mitt in tow. “Scorino!” They exclaim. “Knew there was some stuff left out here!”It’s a little worrying that your first thought, upon glimpsing the bat, is that that would make a pretty good bludgeoning implement. >Well, you should probably be heading back. >[ ] You want to do some training with Laura.>[ ] You want to contact the YXM and co to set up a meet.>[ ] You want to head to the Agency to look up some work.>[ ] You want to go buy some supplies.>[ ] Also, that bat is totally confiscated.>[ ] Write in.

>>39093733Too late Crusty is already writing and "lie to her" already won.The worst part is that Gabby obviously feels that way and buy telling her JJ doesn't it's going to make her feel even more alone.

>>39093534People lie every day. It's mostly harmless.Gabby still vaguely believes that mutanthood is something akin to demonic possession or inhuman ancestry or (insert whatever bollocks the flatscans are justifying themselves with now).Agreeing with her does not seem like a good idea.

>>39094070No it's not. Have you ever talked to a person in real life? You can't be like "Nope, I never thing about it" then latter on meet up with her and say "You know that conversation we had yesterday? I totally lied to you."
>>39094034An after thought, Anon. Something that JJ thought after he had spoken. Try to keep up.
>>39094068>>[ ] You want to head to the Agency to look up some work.

>>39094207Supplies take up a lot of space, Tiger. Probably better to talk to the agency first.
>>39093801>The worst part isThe worst part is that our relationship level with her might have gone up if we had actually empathized with her situation instead of brushing it off. Remember this is a game, we're still only at level 2 with Gabby.

>>39094401That and finding a good PnP is difficult, but good quests are open to all (which can have its downsides).

>>39093774>“We’re still the same up here.”So JJ thinks he always wanted to eat people I guess?
>>39094425>We can talk to her again later.We'll talk again in maybe 20 or 30 threads from now. Most anon's only read like half the quest. The Blonde Phantom is going to give JJ another mission and everyone's going to forget this conversation ever happened. Every time someone says don't worry about it we'll do it later it NEVER happens. About 60 threads ago some anons where pushing for JJ to practice playing with fire to help him get over his phobia faster. Anon's kept saying they'll get around to it.But /tg/ is stupid and if we talk to her later they'll just vote for alienating her instead of empathizing again.
>(1/2)>[X] You want to head to the Agency to look up some work.Grunting slightly, you heave yourself up. “Well, it’s about time I got going.” You notice Gaby eying you a little suspiciously, but ignore it. “I wanna see if there’s any work up for grabs at the Agency.” You think you’ll grab supplies on the way back, too. You say goodbye and head out across the Scar, stopping to tug off your shirt and let your arms devolve into a broad, membranous wings. You take to the sky, and head north. By sky, the Agency isn’t much of a journey, and you find yourself swooping down into one of the nearby alleys a little earlier than you expected. Twitching a twisting and cracking back into (approximately) human shape, you get yourself dressed, feeling oddly energized. Normally, the cold makes flying something of an endurance test, but today your arms actually feel pretty warm.You glance at the time.>Present Time: 13:00 PMMolly answers the door. Today she’s wearing some kind of big, puffy Japanese monster thing on her head. It’s from a film.

>(2/2)You make your way upstairs to find that Remy is still in charge. He’s lounging across one of the sofas, heavy bags clinging to his eyes and a cold flannel draped across his forehead. If you didn’t know better, you’d say he’s pretty much sponging about around the house while the Phantom is gone, sleeping all over her furniture and, by the smell of it, drinking all her booze. He groans slightly when you ask him about recent jobs. “This here is the devil’s hangover…” He explains, pausing slightly, as though he expects you to leave him in peace. You don’t budge.Eventually, he manages to call Nico down from upstairs, and the two of you go through some recent mail. >[ ] The case of the missing student!

>[X] The case of the missing student!“The case of the missing student!” You exclaim, to no-one in particular. Behind you, Remy groans. Let’s see… his parents are Jennifer and Simon white. Their son – the vanished teen – is Nathaniel White, age sixteen, tall, blue eyes, brown hair… a fervent Buddhist apparently. He seems pretty unremarkable, but your nose doesn’t care how generic you look; everyone comes up subtly different on the JJ radio. JJadio. Jadar? No, those are all terrible. You’re terrible.Nico glances over your shoulder at Remy, her eyebrows a flat plane of total non-amusement. “You know what?” She says, slowly, her voice rising as the idea blooms in her eyes. “You can take me and Molly with you.” …Sure. You guess. You’re not sure that was really a suggestion.You write down the kid’s address, and, paying no heed to Remy’s complaints – who will make him coffee? Who will feed him? Who will move him slightly when he wants to lie in a different position? These are important things apparently – you head out onto the streets.This will surely be a grand adventure.>ROLL>No single DC>+3 modifier

>>39095016>unnatural 20>awful successThe case of the missing student, it turns out, is not a grand adventure. You only have to stroll by the broad driveway that curves around the White house to pick up Nathaniel’s scent. He’s only been missing a few days, and you’re rather certain he hadn’t showered before he left (Nico makes it clear to you that this, this behavior, is gross), so the flavor is rather… sealed in, so to speak. You don’t do much detecting so much as just walking. You do a lot of walking. You walk all the way from the edge of northern Queens to the beginnings of Brooklyn on the southern end of town. The trail is fresh and clear and all you have to really do is follow it. It terminates at the door to an old, condemned house on the edge of the borough. You can hear (and smell) Nathaniel inside, along with someone else. Both of them are pretty damn surprised when you kick down the door. They scrabble off-of one another, grasping for the sheets draped across the mattress they’ve managed to drag into the building. It’s almost impressive, how quickly and smoothly Nico manages to slap her hand across Molly’s eyes. You wouldn’t have thought of that. You’re more concerned with the fact that Nathanial’s partner appears to have dark red skin and a long, sinuous tail. Urgh, really? >[ ] BITCH ASS BOY GO HOME MOTHERFUCKER YOU DON’T WANNA BE HOMELESS MOTHERFUCKER I GOT THE SCARS >[ ] Fgsfg just leave, you don’t have time for moral quandaries right now.>[ ] Yo you’re coming home with me right now, pack your shit.>[ ] Let's hear their side of the story.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Let's hear their side of the story.You sigh. What else can you really do?“…Put some pants on.” The situation takes a bit of calming down, but eventually, Nathanial and his girlfriend regale you with their story (it helps a lot when you threaten to smack Nathaniel’s lights out a bodily drag him home if someone doesn’t start talking). You pretty much had most of it in your head, though. Boy meets girl (Nathaniel meets Erin, hello Erin), boy dates girl, girl explodes into mutanthood at the touch of all those squiggly hormonal imbalances only known to true love, boy swears to stick by her. So that was that. Nathanial packed his bags, grabbed his dick, and let it guide him straight out the front door, off into a life of cold, dark uncertainty. "That's so cool!" Comments Molly, eyes shining.No it isn't.You can’t help but sympathize a little bit, but the logistics of this love seem to indicate against its viability. Erin is red and tailed and had eyes like yellow fire, and her speech occasionally trails off into hissing. There’s absolutely no way she can pass for flatscan.>[ ] “This is dumb. You’re dumb.

>[X] White house.He’s going home, that’s for certain. Erin is a little harder to plan for, but you’re going to risk a little on Nathaniel’s parents possibly not being total cockmunchers and being okay with their son porking a horrible mutie. You make sure she doesn’t have any weird mind control stuff that’d make folks extra nervous (she doesn’t. Apparently she can excrete some kind of inky shadow-stuff through her pores) before delivering your verdict. “You guys fine with that?” It strikes you that you’re not really phrasing it as question. They nod their heads in unison, and you help them pack up their meagre supplies. It takes hours to make your way all the way back up to the White house. Hours of keeping Erin safely invisible. By the time you get there, you’re just about ready for everything to get worse, but… you’re pleasantly surprised. The Whites look like they belong in a sitcom. Mr. White is tall, square-jawed, and wears his shirt with one too many buttons undone. Mrs. White, you notice, is where Nathaniel gets his blue eyes from, and she has the look of a banker or a lawyer or someone like that to her. Your arrival on their estate is followed quickly by a dressing-down, delivered mostly via shouting, of such magnitude that you and Nico both cringe, Nathaniel looking smaller and smaller by the second.When they turn out to be okay with Erin staying, you almost check to see if the sky has turned orange, or that the sun hasn’t been replaced by a giant block of ice. “…You realize that’s a crime, right?” Apparently, they’d consider it criminal not to help her out.

>>39097142Better letting Erin know were to run instead of blindly into the streets than just leaving.JJ has not lost all faith, but that does not mean he is an idiot. Trust is earned not given.
>>39097175>give Erin our contact info just in case the whole thing falls throughThis! The Whites might just be acting nice as to not cause a scene. Then they'll call mutant control when the coast is clear.
>>39097018>>[ ] Stick around, just to be sure.
>inb4 we learn they're on the level and we feel sad because Green family is dead while they all go out for frosty chocolate milkshakes
>>39097358That sounds like a great reason for JJ to bring milk shakes back to the Tunnel Snakes and show Layla that not all flat-scans are shit.
>>39097416Why would they give JJ any? They already gave him money.
>>39097427JJ would be bringing milk shakes to the Tunnel Snakes. Ones that he bought
>[X] Stick around, just to be sure.You make sure Erin has your contact details before leaving, just in case things fall through. Luckily, she’s newly homeless, and hasn’t had a change to crack/smash/sell for cocaine her fancy touchscreen phone machine. As you leave the estate, you take a glance over your shoulder, and a sudden, suspicious urge comes over you. Big house. Big cars. Upper class parents with a son to protect. They seemed nice, but the alarm bells are a ringin’ nonetheless. “You guys go ahead.” You tell Nico & Molly. “I’m gonna stick around a while, just to be sure…” You think you feel your ribs collapse slightly when Molly hugs you. Nico thanks you for saving her from nursemaid duty, and the two of them head off into the deepening evening, leaving you and your sore ribs to cloak and dagger your way around. Two hours later and you want to pull all your hair out and arrange it into modern art and spit on it. Total. Waste. Of. Time.Jennifer and Simon White aren’t just nice, they’re angelic. Nathanial is very clearly in the bad books, but they spare no expense when it comes to making Erin welcome. You listen in on them checking her temperature, getting her a hot water bottle, making steaming cocoa for her, and telling her she can take the spare room until ‘everything blows over’. Who even are these people? Are they foreigners? From Jupiter, perhaps? Or Heaven? Maybe they’re extremely confused Skrulls. There was an invasion a while back.Or maybe… maybe they’re just genuinely nice. Like, to a ridiculous degree? You wrestle with the idea for a while, before composing yourself, taking a moment to breathe, and turning toward the street. Good luck, Nathaniel White. You don’t appear to need it, but it might help. You glance down at your watch.>18:31 PMGuh.>Aside from food, what supplies do you guys wanna pick up?
>>39097447That would only prove that JJ is not shit.
>>39097464>Aside from food, what supplies do you guys wanna pick up?Toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, deodorant, condoms, toilet paper, etc.

>>39097464Frosted milkshakes for the whole gang.Did we ever get a replacement for the moonphone that Rasputin destroyed? Have we started reusing our old cheap phone in the meantime?
>>39097464Would a mini fridge be prudent?We can probably "find" some car battery's to run it off and periodically charge. Its probably going to be required when the snow melts. Though we can probably put off buying it till then.>>39097502already got condoms bud, was a whole nonplussed scene with Laura over it.
>>39097464Don't forget to buy a towel, towels are the most useful tool in the entire universe.
>>39097547Get more.They make fun balloons.
>>39097464Make sure everyone has matching sweaters if we haven't already done that.>>39097544Moon phone stronk. It wasn't.
>>39097579damn expensive balloons.
>>39097547This is a really decent idea, and a chance to talk to Noriko.>>39097579Any more and Layla might find one. Do we honestly need one?
>>390974642 whole hams as a treat everyone back in the tunnel. Two because of JJ's apatite.
>>39097614but think of the children! Think of the joy on their faces when they see JJ whip out those condoms.
>>39097631Eeehhhh better make it three.And throw in a rotisserie chicken, too.
>>39097464Do they make soundproof tents yet? I have a feeling Laura and JJ may be causing a few embarrassing moments.
>>39097464>>Aside from food, what supplies do you guys wanna pick up?More food. A few spare pairs of glasses that didn't come out of a dumpster.How we doing on blankets? Toiletries?
>>39097464Towels and text the guys to see if they want anything.
>>39097464a whole bunch of toilet papergod knows how much 7 muties use
>>39097674I wonder if JJ has to take giant nasty lizard shits considering how much he eats lately
>>39097464Would it be offensive to get Gabby a pet brush? I'd imagine full body fur can get uncomfortable when tangled.
>>39097691Considering his insane metabolic rates, I'd expect him to take tiny lizard shits.
>>39097713>JJ actually shits constantly, that isn't BO, it's feces.
>>39097691I both love and hate this place and you in particular for making me read that sentence.
Step 1: Find a water heater.Step 2: Get duct tape and some sort of piping. Anything from garden hoses to PVC pipe.Step 3: Put it on top of the broken down train car that's in the tunnel so that it's elevated.Sept 4: Have hobo version of indor plumbing.pic is a camping shower you hang up in the air. Same concept. I know that we don't have anything to plug the water heater into. But Water heaters are all isolated so that when Noriko melts the water it will stay melted.
>>39097712probably a decent present all told.Shit that's useful is usually forgiven for having "Mr fluffles" stamped on it. Besides, can probably claw that off anyway.
>>39097749>Find a water heater.Or just get some copper, weld it into a big bowl and just heat it up using Noriko's powers.
>>39097749Yo that's pretty cool
>>39097775If the container is't insulated then it would freeze to fast. I don't care how it happens, I just want to be the only hobo with "indoor plumbing"
>>39097749That's actually a pretty good idea, I'm sure there are ruins in the scar with water heaters that we could repair to semi functional status, they're usually way to big to carry and therefore loot without a sizeable team of guys working to shift it. We could probably find one in one of the abandoned apartment buildings in the scar.
>>39097749Pretty good idea.
Feeling just a little bit zombified, you go about your evening shopping spree in a daze, shuffling down overstuffed aisles and muttering nervously to spotty clerks.You load up on protein goods, bottled water, and various toiletries – enough for a few days at least. Mouthwash, deodorant, etc. It’s not essential, but you feel better about yourself just knowing you have it. You’ve had the idea of purchasing a mini fridge at some point, getting hooked up to a generator, but you’re willing to guess that it’ll mean parting with some serious green, and you decide you can sort that out when the cold really starts to recede. Instead, you pick up a water heater (not cheap), a few rolls of duct tape, and a garden hose. You also grab a cheap pair of shades, aviator style, just in case. Loaded down with various goods, you make your way back to the Scar. The evening has descended into night by the time you get back, a great black emptiness extending over the city. You make your way down the steps into the station with exaggerated gusto, heaving down your bags. You slump down and watch as your companions descend upon your gifts.Harpies, the lot of them. >Current Funds: $2,020 Laying back, you notice you there’s a message on your phone.

>>39098087Check it out, then train with Laura (unless it's about something immediately urgent that needs to be addressed).
>>39098160Haphazard fits on so many levels and Laura named dropped it herself
>>39098160What are you talking about, his super hero name is Vagrant and it still fits.
Can we just become Moon Moon?
>>39098160Bitch please, we lizard elf for life.
>>39098087I just realized that JJ would probably make a lot more money then I currently am if he would just work a bit more regularly.>[ ] Check it out now.Better not be Moon Knight messing with out shit.>>39098160The Unconquered Lizard?
>>39098210Crescent the Moon boy!
>>39098087>[ ] Check it out now.>[ ] apologize for leaving wicking with Gabby, offer to finish your talk tomorrow if she's tired.
>>39098189Catalyst is what accelerates the change, so unless we start going Tetsuo with some other mugga (sgain, but this time JJ initiates it) it won't fit.If JJ were more political he could go by Free Radical which - by the way- is totally radical.
>>39098216Someone needs to add Luna Lucha to that card.
>>39098160LUNAR LIZARD LADalliterations are a true superhero's bread and butter
>>39098263add Thrillho to the list Crusty
>>39098206The problem I have with Vagrant is that there's tons of homeless mutants out there, and JJ wasn't even the first. It doesn't describe his powerset either, so it's not really all that special, at least in my opinion.
>>39098263incorrect, Catalyst can also mean allowing change to occur when otherwise not possible, or for a lower cost.
>>39098206It's even in the first line in every thread>You are John James Green, mutant vagrant.
>>39098304The only one that really fits our powerset is Haphazard, and barely. The rest are either picking one trait (scales and claws, association with moon knight) or going for meta.
>>39098312Why not just 'Mutant'?Even among other mutants he's weird.
>>39098332Lucas can be our sidekick "Nigger"
>>39098304Obviously his name should be Changeling since he keeps mutating uncontrollably.
>>39098366there's at least 2 people named changeling already
>>39098366Yeah, I was thinking that it should be something to do with the whole "x-gene always on" idea, but it'd have to be a bit more specific because Gaby, Joyce, Typhon, and all of Typhon's experiments have some form of it.
>>39098376Then another wont hurt!
>[X] Check it out now.Well, consider your curiosity piqued. Or your attention caught. Or something.You open the message, and are treated to an array of succinctly cropped excerpts from a whole bunch of newspapers, web reports, and blog pages. –“Carnage reigns as mobsters fight for dominance”–– “killed in his apartment”– – “New York triads engage members of the Russian mob in open warfare”– – “armed men thought to be associated with the Bratva stormed the victims’ house”– –“gunned down in cold blood”– You sit up, eyes wide, and read through what you can. It’s everywhere – you were expecting there to be MCA folks out in force after your exploits last night, but clearly that stuff is small potatoes compared to this. From what you can tell, the Maggia and the Triads both launched their own offensives against the Bratva, and the Russians, in typical Russian fashion, have responded with total war. –“RPGs fired into these Chinatown offices”– You scroll down.

Thanks for running, Crusty!
>>39098448Could you remind people when the main character has a clearly stated position on an issue? Because some people just straight up don't read.
>>39098448Thanks for running Crusty!To be honest, if we do end up with a codename, i want the papers to report it instead of a vote. JJ does not seem the type to give himself a codename.
>>39098448>Congratulations!

When I first suggested the water heater I assumed we would find an old broken one. If JJ bought a new electric one then Noriko could just touch the power cable any time we wanted hot water. The new ones hold temp for a while.The only problem will be filling it up with water. Maybe we can get a 5 gallon bucket and a mechanical pump so that our friends wont need to climb on top of the train car to fill it up every time.

>>39098603JJ's adapting slower and burning out
>>39098603we did nothing dangerous
>>39098622Our power is like the first layer of cement slowly cooling down! Once the foundation is laid we'll build a mansion ontop of it!
>>39098603He only gets them when he exercises his powers. Being invisible for a little while doesn't count.
I was really hoping we were going to increase our relationship level with Gabby this thread.
>>39098657I think that we're on the second layer now, but yeah. Can't wait to see what Typhon or Daddy Green do to JJ next.
>>390986712 hours of listening in and spying on the whites while invisible and the time before-hand getting her to there is serious use.I think it's new situations that give us one.
>>39098448>>Good>>Now we can beginHoly shit, okay who do you think would try to start an open war between the gangs of NY, and drag JJ into it? From what I know of moonknight, it doesn't seem like his MO, really there's only one person in this town I can think of who would want to start this kind of a war.Pic related.
>>39098700Some other thread.
>>39098726I think Moon Knight was saying, "It's time to start taking criminals out"
>>39098700next time try to relate to her instead of saying "no, i don't know that feel"
>>39098765Keep crying like a baby instead then.
>>39098726Interesting point. But we saw the big head russian enchilada where Alicia was kidnapped. It's unlikely someone set them up. How will Creeper and Fisk react to this I wonder.
Did Barracuda lose a hand? I thought he did.Will he turn into an actually cool version of Barrett from FF7?

>>39099180It's called self-deprecation.
>>39099141Interchangable.It's originally derived from herlequin - Erlkonig was a further corruption.
>>39099114I suppose we could ask Gabby to help us set up the water heater/shower tomorrow morning. That things not going to get itself on top of the train and set up.
Any name we get needs to be a play on the fact that we essentially evolve at a very very fast rate. Any good synonyms for evolve that can work as a name?
>>39098857>Setanta(Irish name for Cú Chulainn)We could just shorten it to Chulainn. It's where Crusty got the idea for Warp Spasm.
Haphazard is best name, it fits and it comes from the mouth of the waifu>“I don’t know. I’m a genetic experiment, not a genetic scientist.” Was that a joke? You think it was. You offer up a small, easily-retractable laugh. “It is strange, however. While it’s not… unheard of… for mutants to possess multiple abilities, it is rare. Also, your powers are…” >She furrows her brow, clearly searching for the right word.>“…Haphazard. There’s little pattern to them. Is there any history of mutation in your family?”
>>39099328Sounds like a good idea. Maybe we could talk a bit about our hunger problem.

I nominate wings 3 for the next thing we mindless push towards!hands free flying is where its at
>>39099432>>39099537Thank you, thank you.
>>39099475I'd prefer to find out what the rules are for extrapolative lock-outs, then dio what we can to get what we want while still leveling Photo, Wings, AA, and a few others.
>>39099677>then dio what we can
>>39099475We've gotten to a point where I don't feel the need to push toward anything.>Wings 3Hands free flaying>Sub-dermal bioweave 3We get shot a lot>Optic Force Blasts 3Can damage sentinels>Electrostatic Touch 3Can start to do damage to armored electronics like Doc Oc and Warmachine.>Shadow Field (2 point)Our invisibility shorts out a lot.>Photosynthetic biology 4Can boost other powers>Natural Weaponry 3Makes out claws longer and stronger>Forearm Plates (1 point)Combined with higher levels claw level this gives us bullet proof gauntletsI honestly don't care which of these we get next.
>>39099789>Telescopic VisionVastly enhance one of JJ's primary senses even further beyond what Senses 5 grants, while also greatly increasing the range of Optic Force Blasts.
>>39099789Electromagnetic Vision.Let's JJ see any hidden microphones, camera,s etc. as well as surveillance equipment
>>39099783My phone thinks it's funny. Maybe I should drop it again and see who laughs last.
>>39099789Then there's druid to grow our own food, grow expensive and rare plants. Might help stop muggas in the scar if we pay them not to.
>>39099826Good point. I forgot about that>>39099844To be honest I'm not really feeling it.Counterpolarity is by far the coolest Extrapolative. Not only does it alow him to stop bullets. In the ask.fm Crusty said that JJ could use it against the ground to run fast and jump higher.The only problem is that it requires 8 X-points total.>5 for lvl 3 Adhesive touch>1 for enhanced repulsion>2 for Counterpolarity
>>39099965Damn, I hadn't even seen that one before. But good luck getting people to vote to improve Adhesive Touch when it took this long just to buy Electrostatic Touch Rank 2.
>>39099965How about we just get Adhesive then?
>>39100003>>39100009No matter how cool I think Counterpolarity is I admit that higher levels of adhesive touch on there own is a wast of X-points. The 5 points it would take to get us to Level 3 is basically throwing them in the trash can since we'll probably never use it.And bu the time we save up enough to get to level 3 adhesive touch we'll probably have tier 3 powers unlocked.
