Last timeWe kicked some major ass in a war simulator, destroying not one but two coalitions of Human and Republic forces slaughtering hundreds of thousands and dozens of enemy heroes in what is the first taste of a grand War Civ come true.And now we're training to learn the skills to be an officer and hopefully the fighting skills we desperately need.
>>39105759Abigail awakes from the Virtual Reality simulator having won! But in front of her is Lillian, her seemingly adoptive older student in the Combine Academy.And she looks mad."I...am gonna save your ass kicking for tomorrow. Which I will kick your ass twice after healing you up again for your earlier stunt and failures. For now come with me.">"What, no congratulations?""Congrats are for later something will be arranged.""First for picking a fight earlier with that one girl and then again for fucking up the piloting. Every mistake you make you will be punished."After that she took you...away from first year barracks and towards the special zone which as you found out is apparently one of the few places where the male and female schools overlap.There she took you to a familiar door before opening. There inside you see the two soldiers who upon her entering got up and saluted."You called us out for what exactly Mam," asked the male trooper."This one here." aka you. " is now your responsibility from now on she will be bunking with you. As her seniors I am expecting you to teach her the ways of the officer."They both stared in utter shock at you."...wha?" pipes up the female trooper. "I thought she was a dissapointment?""That has been rectified for now. Let just say she has shown exemplary results in leadership ops.""Shit really? Must be really something to get her assigned here," mentioned the male trooper as he approaches before halting and looking outside."...where is her bed? So wait are we changing quarters?"She didn't respond as she left."...You do realize she is expecting us to sleep in the same bed together right?""I can't believe she is still about that.""Unluckily for her we are both girls and can share a bed.""That is only because she had the beds be made for two for reasons.""Yeah...one of these days we SO are gonna get her back for this."
>>39105796Well anyway welcome kid to special Officer Quarters Second Year experience.""The special wing is for exemplary area. First years...are SUPPOSE to be separated entirely from the other sex.""Basically the school is broken up into two separate wings one for each sex. There is a place where they intersect known as the special zone. It is there the 'elites', 'officers', personnel, faculty, and outsiders are taken care off. Technically each of the three parts are designed to be largely self sufficient if rather bare boned. The place with the most luxuries is obviously this place but you have to be either very good or an officer to earn your way in here as as student.""When you get on in later years you'll be allowed to interact on occasion with the opposite sexed students in the opposing wing. Whatever you did you must of made one hell of an impression to not only be sent here but assigned to us.""Got any idea for that last part?""eh fuck if I know...come to think of it did we ever introduce ourselves?""Eh I don't think so.""Just great. Alright boy obviously is Chief Male Officer Rexis Azolu and girl is Chief Female Officer Zarisa Alceebo both of Lily Brigade under Commander Lillian.""In other words we are both the highest ranking officers under Lillian's command. w+We both are expected to lead our own division which is split between male and female obviously.""As for Lillian...she commands her own special forces. I heard getting under her own personnel command is a sure fire way into special ops advancement.""Wouldn't that include us?""I haven't heard anything of it including officers.""Pity."What do?>Ask them about something(what)>Ask if you can see them train>Question them about Lily Brigade>Switch Perspective>Other?

Rolled 65 (1d100)>>39109577Eh, basically the same. Sure why not?
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>39109577Yeah, our primary weapon has always been our fists.Hope we can get some power fists soon
>>39109743Nah, irl gists are just...too limited. Even if you put shit on your hands so they hit harder any enemy with any weapon will have superior reach on you, and that's a big deal.I could go for a quarterstaff primary weapon though. Maybe it can split/transform into tonfas too.But i've been playing a lot of Warframe lately so I may be biased.
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>39109382I haz been summoned.>>39106809"Hm training? Oh yeah are were deemed officer material. Fine your best off Zarisa since she does chicks later you'll see what I can do.""Sure that is a good idea our training isn't what you would expect for first years.""ah thats right...they don't get access to some of that stuff till later on. Ah well we can still do the basics.""And the latter basics?""We save that for the big show.""Hm...fine. Still though your gonna need to attend your classes and trainings kid you'll be allowed to see my training once you've done all of that first.""So extended training session then?""Nope it'll be Lily's extra.""Oh yeah that would indeed work.">>39109577"Hm...sounds like your screwed kid.""Yeah she is REALLY good at her ass kicking. Unlike most people here she has already had extensive training and experience before joining up due to that fuck up.""That fuck up STILL cracks me up," commented Rexis trying to stifle a giggle. "Well I guess she can see you train Zarisa I know you squeeze in some training before sleep and early morning every day.""Eh...""What thought i didn't know about that?""I split it between piloting and infantry work. Especially infantry I suck at infantry.""Thats hilarious considering I saw you snipe 87 head shots in a row during the Matches.""...How the hell did you know that was me points scores were hidden until afterwards and I stayed mobile.""Loud booms and bloody CQC slaughter in sniper nests are a dead giveaway.""Hah?""Snipers don't bother with CQC much which is why they stay mobile or lay booby traps. Your unusual in you adopt boomsticks into your arsenal besides a rifle.""Shit...""heh nope not done your also the only sniper who gets all those shots in...without using an actual sniper rifle. Due to regs you are unable to have both a shotgun and sniper rifle so instead you swapped out the sniper rifle for an ordinary rifle and got a basic shotty."
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>39111996"You are the ONLY sniper in the school who doesn't actually use a sniper specs, also your goddamn amazing in a turret.""...I miss you being a smart kid not a smartass teenager who likes to play it stupid.""Hah I miss how sweet you used to be so were even.""Still real impressive though in exchange for duel weapons they are of lesser quality if you had one main...not to mention you don't bother carrying a sidearm.""Anyone else know?""Nah not really people suspect but most think your just some kind of sniper killer. Which you are considering the massive ass raping you gave the sniper only matches.""Yeah I wont deny that one.""So I guess I'll take the girl with me for my nightly training session...meanwhile let me guess your gonna jerk off?""Yup. only time i can get away with it after all.""I thought you used shower time for that?""Nah too awkward knowing your here I just like long showers.""Well shit.""Yeah and you need to get off more often too. I ma sure it would make you more bearable to be arou-*ZAPP*.""Alright lets go," order Zarisa as she puts away her shocker before leading you off. "Truth iz this when it comes to Lillian she is trained as a Clan Commando meaning she is very nasty her 'spec ops' are actually commando trained cadets she herself taught. So for fighting her in close quarters...just don't unless you have a superior position with bigger gun or got power armor and she doesn't."Eventually she brought you to a special training yard which was strangely close."The biggest thing to remember is men on average are stronger then women. That is why I became an especially big fan of guns...in particular the shotgun for the CQC problem. In truth my own training for close quarters combat is actually the mastering the use of ranged weapons in close quarters and using my sniper abilities there.""In that regard these are the weapons I train with.">Pistol>SMG>Shotgun>Gun Gauntlet>Other?Choose one.

Anyone know what pic Genie was asking for at the end of last thread?
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39114559ooh that was pretty good too and its been found(see starter).>>39113257>>39114105>>39114335"n-nh this," you point at the strange pair of gauntlets. With that the girl grabbed them and put them on."These here are gun gauntlets a rather exotic weapon favored by those who prefer a bit more personal touch to it. Old weapons these existed for a VERY long time but weren't very popular until recent times. You can largely thank rocket and gun fists to its new popularity.""Usage wise." She throws up her arm and fist pointing it at a target."They are hard to aim for unless you have a built in targetor hence common with robotic and powered forces." With that she unleashes a brief hail of gunfire destroying the target until you heard a click. "Unfortunately they have terrible ammo capacity for bare fist editions. So most fighters." She proceeds to reload the gauntlets. "Prefer using them in addition to their bare fist fighting as a sort of extra oomph. A popular handicap for those who don't know the special arts. In general the best means of using these weapons are if you are in a bigger rig that can take proper advantage OR" Blades slip out of the fists. "You are able to enjoy its gift of duality. Its strongest advantage. Be aware these weapons have poor range and ammo capacity. Only good for a bit of a surprise or enforcement to your original techniques that aren't supreme. Truthfully I only use these when I am in my armor. Not really worth it when going bare fist. Had more then one sucker bite it due to them thinking I can use these very well. The trick is this."Acquired Secret Technique>Fists of DualityGun gauntlets are a very old weapon but have always been considered subpar until the rise of their descendants the legendary rocket fists. However among the practitioners of these weapons exists an ancient style that take advantage of the Duality resulting in a surprisingly deadly use in their hands.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>39114781The secret aka 'trick' is the taking advantage of two.You have two fists.You have two weapons built into those fists.How do you take advantage?Such the secret style became known for deadly use of being attacked from multiple sources by multiple ways. Those who have fought a master of this secret style of noted its like having to fight 6 or even 8 people at once.For basic users it feels like fighting two at this point you are considered adept.You saw first hand just how strong it was when she activated the practice bots who dropped down and went after it.She moved and swapped between the functions seemingly dashing between bots blasting them with a well aimed just, stabbing them with gauntlet blade, tapping them with her palm and a blade stabbing out in addition to stabbing or punching then open firing at the weak point. There she moved among the bots taking them down in groups. It was almost as if there were 3 different people in there with the way she moved and eliminated the competition.Eventually she finished sweaty and stripped off the gauntlets before setting them down. Behind her stood carnage of battlefield of bots as they were slowly cleaned away by incoming machines."The secret to using these properly is multi tasking and understanding the duality of fists. You understand those principles then you'll be able to use it. I personally only bothered learning it after I found out that its good to have a backups and I needed something to take advantage of my aiming skill while still be bare fist. So its not by any means my strong suite but it proves one hell of a nasty surprise to those who think I am helpless in melee without a gun or knife."What do?>Convince her to show you something else(Choose previous options again)>Ask her to practice with you>Practice solo>Go to bed-no wait eat first holy shit your starving>Other?
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>39115001>Go to bed-no wait eat first holy shit your starvingWe will need some rest before the ass kicking.

Rolled 94 (1d100)>>39115053You decide you want to sleep...also eat. Fuck you haven't eaten all day...or has it been more then 1 day during the simulation? Fuck your not entirely sure. So you followed her back as she grabbed herself a snack and drink but then paused as she noticed your expression.So she slid some over to you and looked over to her own food when she turned around to ask you something and noticed it was already gone. She did a double take there before muttering about something involved starved children of Afora while she got up and went back into the kitchen.After a little while you heard some tell tale sizzling sounds, a bit of boiling, and some whirring. Shortly after you see a ruffled but drooling Rexis suddenly appear and sit down staring at the kitchen.Eventually she came out carrying three different platters of food, one in each hand and another balanced on her head. She made her way over to the table where she set down the platters before going back into the kitchen and brought out cups, drinks, silverware, and utensils, but not before giving Rexis the stink eye. Once she finished setting it up she went off into the bathroom where you than heard the showers start.Meanwhile Raxis for some strange reason was staring at you while stacking up his plate before finally speaking with a full mouth. "You...you are some good luck first you get away with so much and now you somehow convinced her to cook all this up. Hm...note to self is weak towards little girls." that last part he muttered and also mentioned something about something involving boys that required testing also weapon involving tarnished tea and Lillian.The last part lost you as you stuffed yourself with the feast that stood before. The food was of even higher quality then the banquet. Each platter also had differing foods one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner respectively. The drinks were also very good having been freshly prepared as well.
>>39115302Note to self, our ship will require a personal captains kitchen and dining room in addition to the crews/officers dining.
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>39115302The breakfast options were creamy sauce with strange diced fruits mixed in, along with a platter of scorched greasy meat draped over fluffy breads drenched in gravy, and finally served with a fruity milky drink mixture.The lunch was a fresh ACTUAL salad! Next to it were a stack of spicy fresh bread sticks, odd orbs(that turned out to be explosions of meaty and fruity goodness that went SOO goddamn well together), and a drink of tea to go with.Dinner platter was a homemade stew, fresh loaf of bread, fruit salad, and strangely smooth hot carbonated beverages that went delightfully well with the dinner picks.Desert was ice cream mixed with crushed candied fruits and smoky yet spicy sickly sweet drink to wash it down with.In general pure amazing that you did your best to wolf down before somehow making your way to the bed where you collapsed onto. When you awoke the next day you found that embarrassingly enough you were in your undies, your clothes were somehow taken off on your way to the bed, and the mess from your meal was mysteriously gone along with some strange sounds coming from the kitchen.The adjacent bed was strangely enough empty but the mystery was ended considering the sounds of a shower was ongoing.>>39115361The combine is notorious for their spoiling of their forces.What do?
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>39115535Stay awake long enough for Zarisa to get back to bed, but pretend to be asleep. See if she does anything else, and then actually fall asleep.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>39115535O fuck you! ... now I'm hungry, but I'm to lazy to make a meal that fits this.Watch there habits and see what comes of it. Then get up and do a light work out. We must be limber for the fight.

Out comes...holy shit is that really him?Previously he used to be so messy and scraggy looking. Now he actually bothered to clean up and came out surprisingly cute. The reaction of Zarisa upon seeing him was even better as she was setting the table up for breakfast. She actually started shaking and stumbled back into the kitchen. He meanwhile grabbed the food and went to the couch where he sat down eating while checking up on the piles of gear.Eventually she came back out the kitchen and grabbed some food before sitting down next to him. There you heard some murmuring, noticed some kicking, and yelps of pain. Eventually she got up in a huff with the dirty dishes and left towards the kitchen. Shortly after she came out with a medi kit and a stun baton where you heard some muttered complaints that were ended loud zaps.Eventually you got up and started a light workout. This allowed you to get a better view which revealed a stunned him getting patched up by her and them talking about their gear.What do?>ask about training>Get ready for class>Talk to them about something(what?)>Switch>time skip>other?

Fact memorization mostly, from history to physics. But it's not entirely useless - training memory leads to mental acuity in other areas, and knowing a lot is the first step to understanding a lot."don't neglect it" you remember a senior student telling you, "if nothing else, it will help your survival classes, knowing what the things you have can do, what the weather might be like and the mathematics of designing an optimal shelter.

Slash and burn, baby. >>39134391Assuming a majority like the gun gauntlets and they are a secondary weapon, I think the most votes for primary are the Sniper Rifle, followed closely by the assault rifleSo I would vote for>Sniper Rifle>Gun Gauntlets>Cadet's CommandoThis would make us a terror at both far and close range - we'd be weak at medium range, but that should be ok - We can be a sniper until the enemy gets an idea of our position and starts trying to pin us down. Once they are closing the distance to where a sniper rifle isn't the best tool, we can close the distance further and shoot explosive rounds everywhere, gauntlets akimbo. It's every cliche of an action movie hero, but there's nothing wrong with that. >>39134731I'm gonna fluff the Cadet's Commando, in Case Genie hasn't and wants more setting details>Cadet's Commando Kit: Unlike most of the other kits issued to cadets, the Commando Kit bears little resemblance to the kits issued to soldiers in the field - it is mostly a collection of random civilian equipment and oddments, all of it potentially useful but with no coherent theme. The point being, of course, that a commando can use anything to complete the mission. Choosing this will make us seem a little insufferable, and our classmates will act a lot insufferable if we need to borrow a bandage or a multitool - but it is a mark of extra competence to complete missions with the cadet commando's kit, we'll earn more freedom to customize our gear upon graduation, and it trains lateral thinking like nobody's business. >Plus, we'll probably graduate with a story of stopping an armor division with nothing but a shark's tooth, some gum, 97 cm of detcord and two marbles. Well, not those exact things, the sharktooth daisy chain attack has been accounted for in newer armor designs. But you get the idea.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>39135244You have primary and sidearm.IF you give up your primary slot then yeah you can get them.>>39135965They have about the range of a pistol actually only good for closer quarters.The more advanced ones have greater range though.
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>39135965Oops, voting.
>>39135965>>39136100Wow. That fucking commando kit is gonna fuck us so goddamn hard if this gets counted.
>>39136100I wouldn't worry, unless Genie changes the rules again.Actions with our rolls are not actions. Cirts can not change that.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>39136100>>39136137>>39136177Doesn't count as it was attached to one that had no rolls...Seriously though what are you fuckers going for anyway? The armory guy is getting rather annoyed.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>39136221Urban Commando! Rifle for mid to long range, Punch guns for C.Q.C., Medium armor and E.M.P for tanks or other machines.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>39135965>>39135965You know a battle rifle is different than an assault rifle, right? The M-14 EBR is a battle rifle, a marksman weapon. Semi-auto with greater range than most infantry weapons, and can be used as a sniper rifle in a pinch.Contrasted with the M-16 or AK,which are assault rifles that excel at close/mid ranges (mostly close) and have the ability to go full auto.

Rolled 40 (1d100)>>39136778>>39137109Wait, no, I JUST realized what we're looking for!We're after a DMR or a Designated Marksman Rifle A weapon excellent as an intermediary between an infantry and a sniper and able to fill some of the needs of both.As the name implies, it is a rifle meant for a Designated Marksman. A Marksman who can perform just as well near the front lines with his boots on the ground with section his in the trenches as he can up on a mountain top far away.That I votePrimaryDesignated Marksman RifleSecondaryGun GauntletExplosivesEMPArmorLight
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>39137210I can vote that
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>39137210I would like medium armor for more soak in CQC combat, but otherwise I'm down.Just need a toolkit, I say Commando.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>39137349Okay, take a medium then. And yes I vote the commando
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>39137210"Sorry kid your not allowed a DMR on your first year unless you manage to arrange something especially if your wanting a gun gauntlet.""Considering your lack rank or cred just not gonna happen."

Rolled 86 (1d100)>>39137417Its for something else.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>39137381Drat.Well, then I vote>Assault Rifle>Gun Gauntlet>Medium Armor>EMP>Commando KitLearning an assault rifle teaches the basics of gunmanship, which we can then apply to a sniper rifle much better.
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>39137533Vote. We should pick something soon and move on. . .

Rolled 51 (1d100)>>39138028>Talk to someone ( The group that lead us here).Should we hit any where else up or would visiting, say, the pilot armory be pointless?
>>39138028>Better at taking a hit and no it doesn't make it hard to moveWait, I didn't know that.Is it too late to switch? He did say we can easily switch."I thought this stuff was heavy and bulky. It's not? Why have lighter armor then?

Either way you are allowed to choose a replacement.">""Feel free to come by and exchange or replace stuff whenever you want..."If we want to switch to heavier armor we can. Now is better that we haven't yet left the armory.
>>39137951"What are the different suit sizes used for? Is a heavier suit really not that hard to move to a lighter one?"
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>39138230"Because heavy shit is heavy so it wears you out faster but its not harder to move in also less comfortable by like a lot.""And yes it does obviously tend to be bulkier. Lighter armor is more comfortable by a ton and cheaper to make or maintain.">>39138355"Its a matter of weight classification."
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>39138372Think of it kinda like knight armor.Its expensive and uncomfortable but it wont fuck with your agility because that straight up gets you killed a lot faster then having worse armor.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>39138449Put on some of the Heavy armor and walk around in it, and see if we can walk, run, even fight in it for a full day straight (or more).We lived on the streets carrying stolen goods and bags of our only rations for a week enough to know when too much is too much.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>39138523Okay, fine.After that we should visit the Special Inventory.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>39138523Our first class of the day is exercise, so I guess thats as good a time as any to test our endurance with Heavy Armor.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>39138523You can walk and run it just fine. You don't feel any less agile but certainly less fast and more tiring.Like damn.There is yet another weight class above it do you wish to equip it?
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>39138726Hmm, benig tired is no good. We should stick with medium for now then. I think we'll come back to it later after we've trained up our endurance and don't feel tired wearing it.>>39138726How much time left do we have? Can we visit some of the other armories or should we head for class?I think we should stick to the proposed plan. Timeskip exercise and lectures and then see what drilling is all about.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>39138028Time skip to drilling
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>39139084Vote
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>39138861That armor still tires you out.Its a matter of how fast/much it does so.You have time. The school is rather open for first years at the beginning(because they keep getting targeted especially hard).You may check out some of the other armories.Drilling is just that drilling. It may however change on what exactly they are drilling you in. From marching, formations, to taking apart weapons or disabling bombs within a certain stressful time limit.They do all sorts of stuff.
>>39139266Might be useful info for us players. Like, how do the Combine effectively make rigid formations for so many different and unique species? Who can't necessarily move as fast or as long as another? Stuff that we can order our soldiers to do.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>39139266Let's see what's at the officers armory
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>39139380and if we can check out the Special and Pilot armory

Not to mention good comms and simple.""In other words they get all the good shit huh?" asks one of the student soldiers.Their officer merely shrugs and says "You should see what the elite get.""Yeah its better then normal stuff without fail and Commander is basically Elite Officer.

Rolled 97 (1d100)>>39140645I concur.
>>39140705That is to say, consider this: >>39140705A repost of :>>39140645Except including a roll so it can be voted on.
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>39140705>>39140645All the info!
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>39140645"Hah why should I care your a fucking first year! Did you really just contact me for that? Guess what that earned you another ass kicking oh and Nisei too this time around for helping."You could see this officer nisei crumble at the news.
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>39140839Well, diminishing returns. another asskicking is only 50% more asskicking then we were going to receive already.>Officer Cadet Medium>Officer Hand Cannon>Officer Credentials>Commander SniperWe've already got Clan Comm Beads and the armor for communications, and our primary weapon should be the sniper rifle at first. We have to learn how to snipe with a sniper before we can learn to snipe with other weapons.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>39140081>Officer Cadet MediumI believe with our strength upgrades we should be able to go all day with this type.>Commander Rifle, See if able upgrade of Gun Gauntlets.Would love info on the Officer Command, Chief Officer & Officer Credentials toolkits. For Officer Mods I hope we could get something to help ageist E.M.P.s. That way we can drop one on our self and be fine. >>39140839Sorry Miss Lillian, I thought as your underling/student it would be best to ask for your thoughts. It will not happen again. Well let's see if we can get a nuke or something! [Jokingly] Good luck in class, later. [ give com back to Nisei]
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>39141103Actually your upgrades would diminish problems with heavier armors. It wont prevent the tiring though which will happen no matter what kind of armor your using.Its more of how well you can deal with the weight of it and if your using heavier armor...it will actually help you get stronger.>>39141103You have to insert an item then it may be modified.Nisei just looks at you...you can feel his eyes boring through that visor of his.
>>39141051I definitively support the hand cannon. Lemme look at the other stuff.Do you guys think an endurance Mod and getting Behemoth Armor is a good idea?
>>39141205Oh and Genie, is it possible to get a mod to upgrade our Gun Gauntlet + Commander Hand Cannon into a Commander Cannon Gauntlet?
>>39141299I feel like our long term combat speed is going to suck. Granted if we can work our asses off, maybe that will not be a big problem. Just early on we will lag a bit.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>39141334eh....maybe?>>39141410It doesn't fuck with your agility kinda ruins the point if it did like ancient heavy armors.
>>39141410Yeah, we better spend every bit of exercise as we can, eat as much protein as possible, and absolutely no skipping out on leg day.>>39141525Which is good. Its not the agility we're worried about.It's if we're slogging through the mud and rivers, been fighting for a whole day, and suddenly we're so tired we're not fighting at peak efficiency. And thats before injuries and weariness.I want us to be sprinting and skipping and hopping at any stage of a battle at full stamina. Possibly even if we're gravely injured.
>>39141525Also can you clarify what you mean by "special 4 pick"? Can we pick 4? Or can we only pick one?
>>39141629I thought it was something gained from the 44's rolled.
>>39141647Ah, so we can only pick one eh? Hmm.Tempted between the Hand Cannon and the Commander Sniper Rifle.We ARE going to primarily be a sniper. I think we should get the Commander Sniper Rifle
>>39141673I was thinking that for a bit as well. Then after finding out about our roommate's sniping skills. I was thinking we could go more her style. I will give us movement and better fire rate.
>>39141766So thats a yes for the Commander Sniper then eh?Alright. How about the other stuff?I was considering a mod for training endurance. So that we can get stronger as we train and that we won't end up exhausted and have to fight at the worst level of energy.Like, a mod that lets us train our bodies to exhaustion and beyond, but keeps us at 100% focus and strength. So even though our muscles are extremely sore and tired and our body wants to quit we can still think and act like we're fully rested.Later on when we calm down and don't need to train or fight anymore, then it hits us. We 'pay the piper' as it were, and then have to eat MASSIVE amounts of food for make up energy. After stuffing ourselves then we pay the energy tab and fall into a deep deep sleep where our body recovers. The best part is we've worked our muscles to the bring of collapse and beyond that when we do recover they get twice as strong as if we just got tired normally.We also likely have to eat a big breakfast too. And a big lunch. Mhmmm.And that would allow us to get the Behemoth armor and make it practical for long term combat and training too.Thoughts?
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>39141872>Fight all day>Eat like a pig>Sleep like the dead>Wake up to fight some moreSounds like valhalla
>>39141872My main concern is C.Q.C. if someone finds our handing spot, for breaking into buildings or ship hall ways. While our gauntlets can help, a battle rifle should have more of a kick.That mod would be nice. I just wonder how the smile will take it, I'm sure we eat for it as well. I also wonder how well a 13yr girl can handle the weapons and armor of heavy types.
>>39142150>My main concern is C.Q.C. if someone finds our handing spot, for breaking into buildings or ship hall ways.Can you clarify this a bit more? Also is smile a typo?Also if we're talking absolute CQC I wonder if would a Hand Cannon have a bigger kick than a battle rifle.
>>39142212Yeah, my bad. It was for the sniper rifle.Hand guns in real combat are a last resort. We will want better weapon than that.
>>39141299I think behemoth armor is a good idea, on the basis of always wanting to train in the heaviest armor possible. Easier to go with a lighter one later if we decide the fatigue's not worth it.
>>39142295When we're punching somebody face to face, what could be a better weapon against somebody than a giant slug at point blank?It was the preferred side arm for Dragoons and Cavalry officers to deal with pesky people jumping on em.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJv86RpLsVQ4:50Melee combat in general is a last resort. Then again, this is Genie's civ we're talking about and more often than not heroes get into melee one way or another.
>>39142389The fatigue would be handled if we get the Enhanced Endurance Training mod described in >>39141872
>>39142150>My main concern is C.Q.C. if someone finds our handing spot, for breaking into buildings or ship hall waysOh I see what you mean. You're thinking of actual boarding action and ranged combat across ship hallways and stuff. Where we don't necessarily want to rush up to them and start punching.I have some reasons to disagree with that and his name is Warlord Duelfist among many other of our melee heroes who explicitly run up and punch people with guns Also that we'd have some serious armor to back us.That said, this is our school training. Are we more likely to encounter students attacking us with guns from range or in close in hand to hand?
>>39142542>>39142150Generally speaking I do agree. There's a difference between CQC doesn't necessarily mean melee range and we do need a good intermediate weapon.
>>39142436Yeah and when we punch people in the face we have a gun gauntlet. I can get that, but different tech and time period. Plus fewer shoots and crap range, than an assault or battle rifle.Well melee will depend on the opposition. Snipers, probably could work better to get in their face. Unless you want to out snip them.
Rolled 63 (1d100)Anyway, here is my vote1 Commander:Commander Sniper Rifle3 Officer:Behemoth ArmorBehemoth Armor Mod - Fatigue Postponement Training Enhancer >>39141872>A specific modificatoin for Behemoth Armor to assist users in growing accustomed to it>can keep fighting acting and thinking at 100% peak even though our body is exhausted and beyond>Just have to eat more later to make up for energy loss and take a deep sleep>Pushing our muscles beyond the limit makes them grow back faster and strongerEffectively means we won't worry about performing poorly in combat even after being exhausted even after mile sprints in armor, and we can keep sprinting, just later we have to pay back the lost energy with food and restOfficer Credentials - Because papers, as we've seen, go a LONG way
>>39142626Melee will also depend on us. I mean, Post Apoc civ melee is super common and even here in Sci Fi civ it tends to happen a lot too. I'm not saying we shouldn't get a battle rifle on the contrary its a must.I am saying though that we can always get gear later when we truly begin our career as a commander, but here in the school where we're likely going to be facing other students in hallways and rooms which might be the best weapon to fit our needs?
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>39142542Warlord duel fist was a heroic tier mutant.>>39142436They usually start ranged and sometimes end up melee.
>>39142855>They usually start ranged and sometimes end up melee.I believe you Genie.I just think that melee combat is cool. Or maybe that's me just watching too much One Piece where even if everyone has guns melee still tends to be the preferred.Hell, check out the simulation battle and our command of the monstrous and undead forces. As well as the Lingers. That was extremely close quartes with wave upon wave of cloned body pushing up against us.Toe to toe, face to face, melee where you have armies pushing against each other shouting down each others thoats>>39142855Also Genie how about in the sci fi case of strong power armor and super powered fists or aliens with thick skin and claws? Are some units just built for melee better than others?Especially the combine which has many unique species
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>39143013Certainly.Melee weapon increased in happenstance with the rise of urban and boarding actions. Also some armors and many shields are more resistant to ranged weapons then melee because of how they react.Basically you can blame the rise of tech and close quarters to melee fighting becoming much more common.Tends to happen alot in the dense cities or the tight confines of ships along with new tech makes the problem worse.
>>39143093And you know we're a city girl through and through."Wait. . .there are planets that aren't covered by a city? What's this 'Jungle' you're talking about?Is it like a big zoo?"
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>39143169She is from a super slum she was well aware of close quarters fighting often devolving into a melee. Sure it tends to start ranged but surprisingly often it ends in melee.And she knows what a jungle is from vids and games.

Holy shit, they're extra-tough too why are they so tough? Turns out this is Lillian's first ass-kicking and/or lesson, and they're not students at all but max-tier training bots.But it's hard to come up with examples, because we don't properly know what an average day-in-the-life at this school is like.

As you are actually fairly certain you would weigh less and it would be more comfortable.Still though your thankful you missed the previous course considering you are fairly certain you honestly didn't need it or could do very well if you did attend. Still you slowly make your way there escorted by the squad of student soldiers.Eventually you get there openning the door to a brutal scene. Fires were burning, bullet holes everywhere, puddles of blood, and dried smears of it scattered all around in the ruins.Among them you can see groups of students carefully reassembling parts of it for the lecture.Everyone did however notice you as a giant tin can came through and made its way to a seat. It made the other girls very nervous as they carefully fingered their weapons while watching you.When you took off your helmet you noticed a stillness in the air and the bulging of eyes as people noted that in that fat ass tin can came the head of a little girl.They were shocked into silence.That was when however the orator came in who was in charge for the lecture."ALL RIGHT MAGGOTS WELCOME TO THE LECTURE OF TELLING YOU JUST HOW GOOD YOU ARE FOR SURVVIVING THIS LONG RIGHT?""WRONG GIRLY CUNTS YOU ARE ALL WORTHLESS PIECES OF SHIT OF VARYING MEANS.

Rolled 6 (1d100)>>39162469After that was drills which mostly involved a fuck ton of marching(kill me) and formations(mother have mercy). Both of which was torturous for one of your girth and weight.After that was marksmanship which was a breeze and not just because of the lack of movement. Besides the instructor yelling at people in their faces while trying to aim and commenting on terrible techniques of everyone. The instructor noticed your skill in aiming even figured out your not using smart systems activated or aim augs.After that was unarmed which was good and bad.Good as in you were too heavy that techniques that worked on the 'other' heavies didn't do so well against you.Bad in that you burnt out way to fucking fast luckily they couldn't exactly hurt you very well but still.After that was a training period which involved being hunted down by other students and you had the 'option' to visit different instructors for tutelage.>Visit instructor>Battle!>Hold out somewhere>Train>Go homeThis is assuming that you could make it there though.Unsurprisingly training period turned out to be a bloodbath and this was BEFORE senior students came in to slaughter.Finally after that you had to listen to yet another lecture this one basically you all get yelled at for whatever reason or about somethingLecture options>Combine>Republic>Human>Questionings>Other?After that was tasking where you were basically taught other skills like piloting(required) or something else that in your case was using commando tools.After that was yet MOAR murderous exercise which are you were right in assuming was gonna be hell for you in that armor.After that was basic schooling/break where you were taught other stuff, allowed to visit, and recover before free time.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>39162688Humanity in general.The lecturer pointed out why would humans join them if they were having such a good time?He had other issues but that was mostly due to be an oldfart who didn't appreciate the changes compared to the old days.

Rolled 41 (1d100)>>39163578You attend a lecture ranting about the Combine."Greetings student this lecture is on the Combine a coalition of forces uniting that was originally to serve against the Republic.""Now the beginnings of the Combine can be traced to the ancient days of the original founders and the pact they made with each other.""Over time this pact evolved especially once new threatening forces came forward and more members joined up. The Pact evolved into a proper treatise and its forces along with Creed solidified to what we know today that is the Modern Combine.""The Combine is a force designed for the following tasks mutual defense for outside enemies...the Combine does NOT cover infighting under this ONE exemption. That is if the infighting threatens the Combine's ability to wage War OR to come to the defense of its members.""This means Combine membership regularly do fight with each other they are just not allowed to take it too far.""The other duty is neutrality between forces. This means the Combine is forced to remain neutral and serve as common ground for any disagreements. They are only allowed to interfere in the case of threatening of the whole.""Next up is trade. The Combine is expected to help facilitate trade and in this regard in addition to protecting Combine space it ALSO serves to police them.""Few duties yes? Unlike the Republic the Combine's power is STRICTLY limited. The Combine is only allowed limited powers and ways to use its powers. In exchange for offering up our tithes we enjoy the protection and privilege that is membership. The Combine is not allowed to interfere so long as our duties are met.""Does the Combine commit to research and other actions! Of course it does for you see unlike the membership the Combine is expected to service them ALL. This means specially provided ships and stations meant to facilitate.""VERY expensive as the Combine doesn't skimp unlike the Republic and shit is really quite expensive."
>>39163578Well, I'm having a hard time asking this stuff IC because I don't know what a common street rat in a sci fi city slum would know but>"So you want to hear about the old ways huh? Like how most men were sent out on long campaigns to die! Or how they come back twice a year to deal with harvests as a minimum? How about the dire need for manpower that was such that even women had to actively participate?"How exactly does this work in the sci fi world?You'd think space troopers sent on long voyages to conquer other planets wouldn't normally return home. Or perhaps this means more what happens to those said soldiers who bring their families and such to the newly conquered planet and have to hold it.And returning to the harvest, hold old is this guy? By now aren't hydroponics and automated farming a thing?Beyond that even in our modern world its very rare for a soldier to have to return home soley for the harvest.>"As for stamina training in that heavy armor...you a Amazon or something? How about religious, magical or technogical expertise?"Anyway we can learn to become an Amazon or something?
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>39163719A copy of the Combine treatise is handed out along with an image of the original pact.The pact as you take a look at it is simply a pact of mutual defense towards the republic.The treatise shows how the Pact evolved.First came the mutual defense.Then came the clauses preventing fighting that would threaten the whole as well as a pernament force devoted against the Republic was officially 'solidified and backed'.Means of backing/supplying unified forces came to be.Finally came other threats the treatise again was changed to adapt and it changed from 'republic' to 'forces outside the membership.'As additional members came in a new stuff was added that helped facilitate trade, serve as neutral force, and help police/protect the territories of all of membership.Stuff on new membership and their means of offering to keep the united forces working.Finally came a clean up and revisioning that led to the Modern Treatise.Interesting enough in the paper it says that the most valuable document is actually the Pact document which got the ball rolling so long ago...after that there are the modifications and additions.Interesting enough though NONE of that stuff was attached/included with the original pact. Instead later on it was all collected and put before the entire membership who agreed with the strict terms.It doesn't say exactly how many changes were done over time only that one day it was all compiled and voted upon as a whole.What is special however is the Combine Treatise is unable to be changed. ONLY a new document may replace it that has to be chosen by the Members.If enough members agree then its best those who don't do so less they wind up exempt and no longer considered member.Completely different from the republic who has changed their 'living' document countless times and you HAD to agree with it once a 'majority' chose it.The combine doesn't do either.>>39163728"It wasn't always so advanced kid."
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>39163936Eventually it became so goddamn complicated the members had to sit down and create a compilation that they agreed to keep to.This led to the modern document because unlike before a member could choose to ignore parts of the resulting papers by merely keeping true to the others.The new document forced them to be with everything within lest they be cast out.So technically there are only ONE edition of the Treatise as before that was pact and multitude of other complications.The Combine cut it down and recompiled it before pushing it forward. This event was the 'official' founding of the Combine contrary to popular belief.Yet another difference with the Republic.>>39163728"Tech wasn't always so advanced kid and as tech sped up troops were out for longer durations.""This meant the homelands were left on their own for longer periods of time too.""Such things are indeed now a thing kid but it wasn't always so advanced or good.""Amazons are an ancient group of female warriors think they ended up breaking into a number of clans. Hard to know for sure they rather hated men.">>39163719"So the Combine due to them having to pay their dues to all factions...invest HEAVILY in special set ups, but get this will ONLY happen for LIMITED things. Otherwise the Combine does it by Classification needed for Life and Use.""So besides the limited areas designed for ALL the Combine has EVERYTHING else for only some.""This some is based off requirements for usage and life. So they break up their classifications and organization by such.""So as a human we would be an oxygen carbon life form Heavy worlder. So we would naturally be placed within those groups should you enlist with the Combine.""This means those other species you will MOSTLY deal with are beings who share those same exact qualities. The rare exemption being in special stations of the Combine that allows lifeforms of great differences to coexist side by side.""That is however very rare.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>39164185"Instead the Combine creates installations and ships designed to best facilitate a certain type of lifeform that they then provide widely in certain areas.""This will create a network...and in the heart of these networks in the exemption that breaks the limitations.""The same goes for Equipment and ships. Instead however compared to Member's tech...Combine provided is MUCH better on average.""This is due to the Combine using the resources of ALL its members, resources, and tithes combined to created a special kit for their members.""This means Unlike say our armor and guns made by humans FOR humans...in the Combine its for Humans by Everyone COMBINED."You notice the instructor pulls out two weapons...one was clearly human and made by human a simple pistol. Meanwhile the other...was both very similar yet very different.This pistol here...is human made for humans a typical piece in our arsenal meanwhile this." The teacher holds up the other strangely bizarre human weapon. "This is a Combine sidearm designed for human usage. Now compare the two's power."Two targets was brought out that were then shot. First came the human made and it blasted a good chunk off. Next came the Combine pistol which fired...and where the hell did the target go?"Now each of these weapons are the same exact age and yet look at the difference!""That is the might of the Combine children and we are members of it. So do we TOO get such pieces of gear?"The teacher moves and sets up a new image."To a degree class. The Combine keeps its newest toys to itself but once it has something new it will offer the 'outdated' pieces to its membership. Now as we use them in our forces what happens when they get outdated? Why throw them away when we can sell or use for further learning?""This means girls." The instructor pulls out a crate. "The items you are using?" the teacher starts pulling them out...and much of it seems quite familiar the rest of it...not so much.
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>39164420"The stuff you are given are editions of tech that has first seen the hands of the Combine, then a member's military, followed by reserves, and then militias...then and only then does it fall into your hands." The items brought out are clearly student goods...except for some that looked very odd...much like your Commander Sniper."For you students the basics you are given are stuff that is Man Made however...should you prove yourself." The teacher pulls up a strangely odd yet similar comparison. "You will be granted access to former Combine tech.""However the Combine tech is NOT offered freely...instead its something that you must first EARN! That means girls that the Elite, Officer, and with some exceptions are ALL Former Combine tech that has been passed down.""The other stuff is purely man made for man. That other stuff you all so desire? Combine tech made for man now potentially available to you should you prove yourselves."
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>39164593...now for EASTER special!----For some reason that you don't know why you are being brought to a ship that will be escorted by Legit Combine vessels to some sort of world for a field trip.This trip is apparently quite something as your being offered candies, chocolate, feast, games, and even a special service that is making it so that the griviously wounded and dead(?) are being brought back in such a way they can participate.You for the life of you can't figure out what the hell the strange rabbit monster is for who is serving as guide.

>>39167050>>39167095We also know she's a Rogue if that helps
Supreme AcademySupreme Skill Training RegimentShe's going to go trhough both in her lifetime.Darnit if I knew even a hint of a hint of what we're looking for
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39167006Maxed out Starter skills?Toughness?Goddammit this shit's hard.
>>39167175There was also the augs we got. The slime and such things. That was from the dossier the doc gave us.
>>39167006Can you clarify exactly what you mean Genie? There are a a lot of things that can be considered special about herThe Slime Serum Aug for example, is INCREDIBLY rare apparently, everyone just gets the product but we have the real deal.
>>39167196Evidently the doctor came on because he likes to study exceptions and his preliminary scans indicated we were exceptional but couldn't pinpoint what...
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>39167141I...uh no its just to give you some ideas.>>39167196Before that actually when he was stumped.
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>39167274At the moment it is.Its more top secret than anything.And its only rare because its in the early stages.>>39167275and he gave some ideas/clues on what the possibilities could of been.
>>39167307>I...uh no its just to give you some ideas.Why'd we have to vote on it then? We spent like a day voting all of that stuff.
"Combine sticks with...averages they care not much for 'exceptions' or 'others' due to their love of...effiency.""I however do not have this problem. Its why your Sponsor requested me to...be your doctor for a time. Sponsor claimed you were exception which earned my interest. I have had VERY few samples of such for my research."Well shit and here you thought that was due to human docs being so rare."Basically unlike Combine Doctrine I am interested...in the different, the exception, and the Other.""My research that while obviously not as common as averages it doesn't mean that looking into it shouldn't be warranted with combine resources. Instead Combine is more then happy to let members do it for them.""Which is ironically...inefficient. In order to acquire Combine resources I have had to play along with Combine to acquire spare resources for my...personal interests and private projects.""Your sponsor wasn't lying by the way according to my scans and work so far you do NOT lay within the average of your species...which is most interesting.""Even more interesting I have yet be able to pin down where it lies...this may quite possible be due to interference from more then one."
>>39167307>>39167325"I am afraid I cannot. There is too much interference I am unable to pin down it down exactly. For all i know you may have super power(s) or could become a goddamn psi mage."Okay, found the heavy-hint.Hmm, and the Udeakoi's Serum was applied to us so WHATEVER it is we have got enhanced....Presumably we were pretty damn lucky to get out of the slums, maybe that's it. We also seem to have some sort of effect on people, seeing as we convinced our Combine Patron to take us up and we impressed Lillian too.
>>39167386On another note, the Doctor suggests we figure out what we've got and deal with it before we get thrown into a special prgram or move on to a Combine-proper facility.
Gotta think on it. . .somehow.Can't even throw out random ideas like when talking to the Rock.There is a lot that is special about our character, and none of them seem more special than the other except the slime.
>>39167325Is she a Super Genie?
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39167602If you choose her to be.
>>39167651You keep saying 'choose'but then you say 'I've hinted it'Is it something already decided or not? I know she has Martial and Mystery as apprenticeships
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>39167666Its to figure out the redacted and or mystery.>>39167554It can be something you choose.
>>39167781Well, personally I WOULD like her ot be a super.But I'd more like the mystery thing to be whatever it is you had in mind.But your hints are as thin as helium in space so. . .can you at least throw your players a bone here?I'm sure you have something neat figured out. Let's see if we can't find it
>>39167781>>39167812Yeah, a hint of what you originally had planned is good before we decide anything.
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>39167923>>39167812Its largely up to you based off your actions and choice teasers.
>>39167965So we get to choose...but it's just based upon our actions while using the character, rather than just choosing?And you've teased what we've got predispositions to, but we just can't figure them out?
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>39167965Hmm. How about I describe something to you, and then you help us by choosing the upgrade that best fits.I want her to be a walking mass of BRUTE FORCE. A moving mass of indefatigable, unstoppable, and indomitable.She can take a hit and then give it back and then some. Someone who could take a mobile freight train in a wrestling match and win with ease. With just as much Health and Stamina (if not more).Think the Hulk or the Juggernaut or Wolverine.At the same time, I want her to be specifically trained in the art of elimination of high value targets. The Republic knows that to defeat the combine is to defeat their heroes, and the primary enemy of any heroe are other heroes and special forces. As well, the enemy almsot always surrounds their special forces with regular grunt forces.She should be trained in selectively targeting the most high value person on the battlefield and take them out even while supported by other forces. How to pick them off at range with her sniper rifle, even while standing in the middle of a fight.Would >Supreme Regen>Supreme Toughness>Supreme Skilled: AssassinationBe reasonable?
>>39168098I like that idea. We'd be a tank made of fuck you with a big cannon to match. It'd be foolish for them to try and send any kind of spec ops or hero at us.
>>39168098>>39167965Can this work Genie?
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>39168240That it would...in a manner of speaking.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>39168271Good! Then that's my vote.Superstrong, supertough, superhealth, and with a goddamn super gun in her hands.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>39168355Its just that is something you don't have to wish for to get just get enough augs for it and it can happen.Otherwise it will be super body ability.
>>39168437Why not have it synergize with the augs?1+1 still equals 2 doesn't it?So having a Super Strength body ability plus a Super Strenght Aug will double the effect right?
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>39168437Which can be pretty much said of everything really put in the resources or training and you can get it.So its like...I don't really know what to say exactly.>>39168458To a degree. It sorta depends on if its replacement or not and other stuff.Not really you suffer from stuff like diminishing returns and how its built for.
>>39168458So like if your replacing muscle with specially built corded muscle fibres mixed with carbon for an armor boost.Wont do you much good if its replacing something that is superior due to what you already got.Like of it something like that way.
>>39168478You're just telling us not to get an electric heater if we already have a fireplace. Diminishing returns and redundancy.But then, how easy will it be for us to get augs then?What is difficult to replace with augs or almost impossible to get an aug for?
Rolled 61 (1d100)May as well post the pastebin for what I have so far. >http://pastebin.com/HvVZVYf6Mostly about the girl, but some of the guy's info in there as well.As always let me know of wants and changes.
>>39168501What about addons instead of replacements?Say we have Supreme Strength Muscles, and then instead of replacing the msucles we inject and coat the muscle fibers in a Nueroreactive Polysynthetic Alloy to give increased strength and durability?Like how Wolverine's claws were made sharper by adding adamantium.Or spiderman injecting web from his hand into a specific built web slinger?
>>39168437What ARE things that can't be taken by augs and we'd have to wish for?
>>39168621I think, special powers man. Like transforming into fire, or lightning, or the likes. Thats not gonna be giveable by Augs I think
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>39168506Psi and magic potential is a bitch to properly aug for.See above. Those are the two biggies.>>39168578To a degree it can indeed work that way but that may require specific specialized augs that the Combine isn't known for(republic loves that shit though).>>39168632That is also true.
>>39168632>>39168678>Actual super powersOOooh man this gives me ideas. Gimme a sec
>>39168678Okay. For an actual super power here's my idea.Ever watched One Piece? You may be familiar with Bartholomew Kuma. He has a devil fruit which gifts him a tactile superpower.The ability to "push" anything, at any intended speed. Be it gently tapping a person to fly hundreds of miles away, to even compressing entire cubits of air into a tiny speck and launching it to release as a literal explosion.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ_-yVm5H3kFor us that means when we punch someone we really PUNCH them, being able to even push the resistance of the object of whatever we're punching and making Newton cry. The end result for us is pic related.>see picOf course, for balance purposes we won't be that powerful as a noob, but we'd train it as we go along.>>39168678Is this okay as a super power?
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>39168678I'll go for Psi-Mage.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>39168862Corpse explosion?Bartholomew Kuma had a specific devil fruit power. Devil fruit powers are rather...powerful especially when given training.In which case its known as a grower power because it can grow. Grower powers are rarer but in the end can be trained to also be stronger.Basically powers started to become more common over time due to certain bleed effects and crossbreeding provided the foundation.That isn't considering the stuff that may be earned, given, or whatever.Devil fruits are considered a devilish cursed artifact.
>>39168973>Corpse explosion?More like punching/pushing somebody so hard they EXPLODE.
>>39168973Generally it means "pushing" when punching things at such ridiculous speeds anything can happen.Punch a tree and it splinters and the shards embed themselves throughout the forest.Punch a tank to go flying into the air like a ballistic missile and smash into a hovering space ship.Literally punch out all the the blood right out of a person.
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>39168888>Those quadsWho can deny that? Vote
>>39169032>>39168987Don't forget being capable of "pushing" air at the speed of light like a powerful cannon.Which makes me think of us motioning to punch someone far away but them still reeling as if they were hit.
>>39168973Can we have more than one thing? We do have 100 AND a holiday special
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>39169098You mean to say... She will be able to cast fist? >>39169032>>39168987Vote
>>39168678Genie, how would you describe Kuma's power as an actual hero ability? A grower power as you said.Except instead of palms we use our fist
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>39169170>>39168888I'd like to vote both.We can't properly cast fist unless we are a mage.And we can't be a proper mage unless we can cast fist
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>39168888>>39169040The dice gods seem to favor Psi-Mage. So I vote psi-mage
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>39169193I would say its a force or repel power.
>>39169330Wait.. Is "force" a diffrent energy than magic or psionics? have we encountered force users and just assumed that they were psions in the past?
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>39169330How moldable is psi or magic?Can it be used to replicate others?Say we spent a considerable amount of time training psi or magic, could we then use it to replicate Force or Repel?
>>39169384The only example we have of a Psi-Mage could actually do exactly that.He was specced into forcefields and dodging, but goddamn if that didn't keep him alive longer than I ever expected.
Speaking of special, we did get that super lust from the leprechaun for a mistake of tongue. Was that what Genie had in mind?>>39169459Good point.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>39169371Yup. Force powers are one of the more powerful ones, but both of them can learn force spells or psi usage.>>39169384It varies.A pyromancer psionic for example can't do shit with anything but heat.A flame magi would suck ass with water magic.It can replicate certain powers and affects.hell some say certain powers actually come from little too potent spells or even permanent affects that passed down through blood(possibly).You could indeed.Force effects are VERY popular to learn.
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>39169472Well, you've convinced me.I vote the Psi-Mage.Just that.Which means we'll have plenty of opportunity to diverge or specialize in anything we want later on. Be it pyro, force, cryo, or anything at all
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>39169533As long as it leaves open the door to cast fist I'll back it
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>39169620>Thinking psi users can't fling psionic fists at people
>>39169620>>39169533>>39169300>>39169040>>39168888Seems we have consensus
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>39169704I would enjoy literally flinging a fist of force at someone.Force in the shape of the fist, just to punch them, despite the inefficiency.
>>39169772A fist of force coupled with our actual powerful fist of fist
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>39169704>rolling for an innate talent for casting a particularly mean psi-fist
>>39169786Don't forget we are learning to use gun gauntlets.. Actually.. Seeing as the secret to gun gauntlets is dualatity and redundanc this should work great In tandem.. Can we cast fists that are wearing psi-natural gun gauntlets of their own, that can aim and shoot on their own without our guidance.
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>39169725Psi Magi it is...uh you are aware hybrid don't wor-FUUUCKING CUNTS FOUND ONE OF ME BLOODY SECRETS.GODSDAMNIT.UGH NOW ME HEAD HURTS...
>>39169824We could always custom build giant metal fists with cannons on them, and use our giant psi fists to handle them and synchronize with our motions
>>39169842That absolutely needs to happen, her fists are so fuckhuge that her knuckles drag on the floor when she walks, like an ape.
>>39169876I was thinking they'd be flying around her as she walks.Alternatively she rides standing atop them into battle, pummeling the first motherfucker she sees with a cannon shot follow by the metal fist.
>>39169911I want her to be able to cock her forearm like a shotgun and launch it like some kind of Dalsim from street fighter/ loony toon character
>>39169963That works too
>>39169911She could just outright walk on her fists, because they are longer than her legs.. Pic kinda related
>>39170053Just because I saved it and will never get another chance to post this pic
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>39169825if you wish to continue discussing just make a new thread with the starter image.I haz to think things out and its getting late.
>>39170504So be it!Today has been such an exciting day throughout this whole thread I'm not likely to fall asleep sometime soon
>>39170504By the way Genie, what does the word "Serenity" mean to you?
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>39170561I watched the show and movies.>>39170577Meant for this thread.I really like that pic I found.
>>39170836Which pic is that?
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>39170884The starter pic of this thread.
>>39170965Ah. I'll remember that next time.
