You managed to scrounge it together at Hisako’s behest – it’s a signal, letting the others know where you’re meeting them. You can’t help but think it might also be some attempt on here part to evoke a sense of camaraderie; the way it blooms through the dark reminds you of camping trips along the old borders, or nights spent lounging beside the lake of your childhood. Makes you nervous.The old playground is silent save for the crackle of wood being slowly devoured. “…They’re coming, right?” Says Noriko, shivering slightly. She edges closer to the fire, rubbing her forearms. Laura shoots you long stare that seems to echo her question.“Sure hope so.”
>(2/2)Jono turns up first, along with Kiden and some other kid you don’t recognize, a scrawny Indian boy with a cuebald head and blinking red eyes. He greets you in his rumbling, disembodied voice, introducing the kid as Gareb. The boy watches you with seemingly piqued interest, the blinking light of his eyes seeming to shift its tempo occasionally. Soon enough, Julian arrives with his usual entourage of Rockman and Mr. Somewhat Reasonable. Hisako is the last to materialize out of the gloom, flanked by Douglas and a young Latino girl you’ve yet to be acquainted with.Under the firelight, you shadows are like reeds swaying in the wind.“So.” Begins Julian, glancing from you, to Hisako, to Jono. “What’s all this about?”>Present Time: 18:44 PM>Hunger Level: 4>Current Funds: $2,020>[ ] You think you should be capitalizing on the escalating gang war.>[ ] You think you should be preventing any one gang from ‘winning’ and strengthening its position.>[ ] Full disclosure.

>(1/2)>[X] You think you should be capitalizing on the escalating gang war.You’ve been rehearsing this moment in your head. Still, it takes a moment for it to sink in that you called this whole thing into existence, and it should be you that starts speaking. “Right… Well, I’m sure you’re all aware of what’s been happening outside.” You glance between them. “The Maggia and the Triads are doing their best to tear the Bratva a new one, and the Russians are fighting back harder than anyone thought they would. It’s gotten so bad that the MCA are loaning out powered suits.” You pause before continuing, letting that settle in. “But… this could be a good thing for us.” “How could this be a good thing?” Interjects Hisako, his face impassionate. “People are getting hurt.” People are always getting hurt, you think. You don’t say it, though. “It means all three of them are vulnerable. They’ve been pulled into an all-out war. Their attention is fixed on not getting their shit pushed in.” “Right.” Jono’s voice crackles through the air, a dim, fiery light pushing through the motley assemblage of scarves around his lower face. “You’re thinkin’ we should jump on ‘em while they’re down, is that it?” You nod. “Exactly.”
>(2/2)“I’d like to note,” says Julian, drawling out his words as though interpreting for a foreign audience. “This is exactly what we should’ve been doing weeks ago.” “No, it’s not, it’s…” Trailing off, Hisako sighs, pinching at her brow. Eventually, she looks up at you. “You can’t really think this is a good idea. Protecting ourselves is one thing, but this is… something else entirely.

>>39158638>[ ] If you don’t make some kind of statement these people are just gonna keep victimizing mutants.We need to keep the mutant fighting to a minimum. This is a chance to make Public like mutants more. If we have mutants not do anything too bad, and let some mutant heroes stop some shooting human gangsters, we make ourselves look good.We do need regular humans do some bad shit, but at rate this is going, that should not be a problem.We talk any mutant with visible powers to stay out of it, so they wont bring the heat, and trade some information with drug force/police, and have mutants be credited for it.

And if we don’t do something, not only are people going to get used to their suits being in the city, the mob are going to get used to us mutants just letting them push us around!” Hisako draws back slightly, a note of shock registering in her expression. You guess she didn’t expect you to raise your voice, not even a little. You keep going: “All these gangs could be pushing Jack. This is our chance to put an end to one of them – maybe all of them.” There is a momentary silence. Slowly, Julian begins to clap. He’s smiling broadly, the glow of the fire seeming eerily at home in his eyes.“Well, I’m in.” He turns to glance at Jono. The older boy gives him a distinctly impassive look. “Alright, mate.” He says, in his odd, crackle-pop voice. “It seems almost reasonable. The Corsairs could stand to relieve some gangsters of their ill-gottens.” All eyes turn to Hisako. She frowns deeply. “No civilians in the crossfire.” She says, her tone firm. “We act with care. Can we all agree to that?” You all nod, some of you more vigorously than others. She sighs, and shrugs, as if to physically slough off her objections – and, you think, some measure of responsibility, too.“I suppose we’re doing this, then.” She glances over at you. “Is there some kind of plan?” >[ ] Tell them you know a few mob properties that they can hit.>[ ] Tell them everything; you have a magic Moon Phone with a map of NY’s criminal underground embedded in it.>and>[ ] You should focus on the Triads.>[ ] You should focus on the Bratva.>[ ] You should hit both of them at once.

why the fuck are people voting to tell them about the phone?Moon Knight doesn't have a good rep
>>39159521Yeah, it'd be nice if we could keep that to ourselvesJust say we have knowledge of the places

>>39159521Because that option hasa) Our deal with the maggia in itb) a reliable source of info. Everyone knows moonie is a crazy SOB, so they rely on him to have good intel. Plus we have used it before.c) It puts the choice of targets firmly in our hands. No loose cannons or collateral damage.

do we have to say we got the phone from Moon Knight?can we just "my benefactor" or " friend" ?
>>39159719Wouldn't call him a friend. Call him creepy dude that kidnapped us, and wished to remain anonymous?
I get the paranoia, but Moon Knight did make it so we couldn't follow him with it and blocked his number. In all likelihood he probably anticipated this would happen
>>39159859And that would make them trust his intel how?
>>39159872The man is practically rubbing his hands together in fucking glee at what we are proposing to do. Like that friend who accidentally does something smart and goes "Just as planned!"
>>39159920We should not trust the intel. Having it is good, but we need to double check, that he is not setting us up.He might be setting us up, you know.

>>39160063Yes but that's meta. We can't argue that it's clinical insanity given tons of people fight crime.
>>39160063but anon, even the insane have logic when it comes to certain things.Moonie thinks JJ is on the path to redemption. A potentially saved soul is not something to throw at traps, but nurtured etc etc rabble rabble.The point is, we are not on the disposable mook teir of opinion for moonie.
>(1/2)>[X] Moon Phone.>[X] You should focus on the Triads.“Well, for now, I’d suggest focusing on the Triads…” You did a little research on Moony’s little Moon Phone. Mr. Negative definitely classes as a priority target. There’s a video on youtube of him punching Spider-Man clean through a pair of high-rises. You don’t necessarily want to run into him, but you want to get rid of his entire support network. “That said, though, everything pretty much hinges on this:”Rummaging through your jacket, you produce Moon Knight’s dubious gift to you. Julian snickers quietly.“Your iPhone is going to win the day?” You ignore him. Before you can say anything, though, the boy on Jono’s side – Gareb or whatever – cuts in. “He’s right.” All eyes turn toward him. He withers slightly under the pressure, but continues: “I-I was wondering when you’d bring that up. It’s incredible. There’s a map on there detailing everything you’d need to know about this city’s criminal element. Profiles, locations, typical numbers… It updates, too, doesn’t it?” You nod cautiously. “Yeah.” You guess he’s a technopath or something? “How’d you come across something like that?” Asks Jono, his brow arched in surprise.
>(2/2)“I work with a local detective agency.” You answer, staying a little way from the subject of Moon Knight. “I can across it on a job.” “You’re a detective?” Says Hisako, an incredulous note to her voice. “You hold down an actual job?” Julian echoes her tone of voice, before waving it off jokingly. “I kid, I kid…” “Still…” Jono’s voice rolls across you, and you think you detect a faint touch of something like actual interest. “How do you plan to use it?” “Well, actually…” You glance down at Laura. “I haven’t planned anything. She has.” Seven pairs of eyes shift towards her, and you feel her tense up uncomfortably at the sudden attention. >[ ] Step in and go over it yourself.>[ ] Wait for Laura to take the lead.

>[X] Wait for Laura to take the lead.For a moment, she seems to freeze, and you catch a terrified glimmer in the corner of her green eyes – like she’s been caught performing some unmentionable act and must now face all the terrible consequences. Slowly, though, the gears begin to shift, and she grinds forward. The tension doesn’t work its way out of her, but she pushes through it, literally forcing herself to move. “I…” Her posture straightens. Everything wrinkled and casual about her is patted down and straightened out, and she clears her throat. “There are thirteen major Triad properties on this side of the river, most of them concentrated along Northwestern Queens.” She states, her voice quiet but hard. “Of these thirteen, six are below Greenpoint. Two are on the outskirts of Brooklyn, while three are located along the stretch of land between the river and the Hillcrest area. Should enough of these properties be attacked, it would be basic operating procedure to assume everything along that stretch compromised somehow, and to consolidate back at the largest facility in Northern Queens.” She pauses, and glances back at you, as if to make sure that she’s doing okay. You nod in a way that you hope is encouraging. “Successfully attacking that facility would mean eliminating a significant amount of resources, both in terms of manpower and other assets.”In the silence that follows, you think you hear Julian whistle under his breath. “Well…” Hisako gives Laura an odd stare, like she’s sizing her up. “You’ve clearly thought this over.” Laura blinks, nonplussed, and mumbles a quiet “Thank you.” Julian raises his voice.“Question is…” He smiles eagerly. “When do we start?” >[ ] Tonight.>[ ] Tomorrow. >[ ] Three days’ time.>[ ] Write in.

He said that it would be best to ask you.”Laura glances at you, before turning back to the Phantom.“I have been trained in one-hundred-and-twenty-seven styles of combat, as well as covert operating procedure, first aid, enhanced interrogation,”– You notice the Phantom frown a little at that –“advanced acrobatics, espionage….” etc etc etc it goes on for some time.By the end, the Blonde Phantom can only be described as looking decidedly worried.There is a long, awkward silence.“Jonathan…?”You nod. “Yeah?”“May I speak to you for a moment? In private?”

>[X] Tonight.“I’m ready right now.” You state, inviting a few raised eyebrows. “If you guys need time to prepare, we can take the time. But the opportunity won’t be here forever.” This time Julian whistles out loud. “No time like the present, I guess…” He says, in an almost sing-songy tone. Jono appears to think for a moment. “Tonight.” He says, eventually. “I’ll inform my people.” Hisako sighs deeply. Outwardly, she still appears hesitant, but you can see a sort of tense, nervous excitement moving through her frame. “Let’s get this done.” “We meet back here in an hour, then.” Says Jono, his eyes shifting along the assembled mutants, a quiet, intense scrutiny to his stare. “We can figure out who does what, and then… we can get on with it.” The rest of you nod in agreement, and gradually you depart. Julian gives you a playful punch on the shoulder as he swaggers past, an almost mischievous smile on his face. You breathe in, and breathe out.

>>39162099Sometimes, depending on the person.
Rolled 17 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>39161888Well, we could always beat them unconscious, drop them right next to a police station, and take photos of them, add captions, make it go viral.
>>39162099He does have pent up anger and frustration, so I think he likes having a release for it and, until we can figure out something better, hurting people will be that outlet.
Rolled 19 (1d20)Rolling for dumpsterdiving for a mask.
>>39162099>people are actually going to respond to this seriously Yes, because some anons want to go full Jack Bauer/Jacket/Frank Castle, and that's only to make things worse for the mutants of the Scar and that was totally against the fulcrum that convinced everyone to join in
>>39162137Fuck, I'm cool with tazing them and handing them off to the next gang that sees them. They can kill them in cold blood, less clean up for us to deal with
>>39161976The limited ammo capacity of a revolver would be somewhat of a hindrance considering our super-aim and whatnot. I'd go for something with more range and versatility, like an assault rifle of some sort(both should be about equally difficult to track down, considering how restricted handguns are in NYC). Recoil is no problem for us with super strength and agility, so it would be better to go for something older chambered in 7.62mm, and preferably something accurate at long ranges to make the most of our super aim. We really don't need a weapon for close combat considering our physical abilities, claws, and eyeblasts.
Rolled 15 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>39162169I just hope Jono's guys and the Hellions think the same way.

>>39162245>Daily Bugle>FURRIES BRING WAR TO THE TRIADS>12 dead in gang violence
When you return, it’s with Noriko, Lucas, and Laura at your side.You feel the warmth of the fire and hear the nervous, excited hubbub of the shadows moving under its light long before you see any of them. When you come into view of the blaze, you’re almost lost for words – it’s more mutants in one place than you think you’ve ever seen, barring videos of the camps. There must be thirteen or fourteen Corsairs huddled together, faces familiar and unfamiliar. You spot Jubilation and Paige among them, and catch a glimpse of the pixie girl's sparkling black eyes, but for every one you’re familiar with there’s at least two more you’ve yet to be acquainted with. You recognize everyone from the Young X-Men – all six of them. Same goes for the Hellions, when they arrive; all ten of their members, including those weird white-eyed triplets, are present and accounted for. Over the course of an hour, you divvy up your efforts. Laura reminds the lot of you that those of you attacking the first batch of targets aren’t there to destroy. The aim is to cause panic coupled with mostly superficial damage, driving their occupants out. The hammer will fall further up the length of the river, near 47th avenue. Slowly, several teams begin to form. Jono insists that most of his people’s powers would be suited to sowing panic, so the Corsairs mostly split up between the first targets. The Young X-Men and the Hellions spread out their rosters to pad out these teams, but Julian, quite unexpectedly, decides that a number of his fellows would be nothing but overkill – himself included, apparently – and assigns them to the hammer. Speaking of which…Noriko, Lucas, Laura, Julian, Lance, and Hisako. That’s your team. You guys are in charge of hitting the primary target once as many Triads as possible have relocated to it.>anything you’d like to bring up or change?>or ask?
>>39162327>[ ] Prioritize non-lethal methods of stopping them, and only kill if your back is against the wall so to speak
>>39162327who the fuck is lance
>>39162327destroy if you cankill if you mustbut get out alive by any means
>>39162327>>anything you’d like to bring up or change?Encourage people to be quick and effective, but preferring nonlethal methods in order to avoid sentinel response.
>>39162393Avalanche. He makes tremors n shit.
>>39162380Backing.If we just slaughter everyone it will not do us any favours.
>>39162393Read the archives. Or Google.
>>39162327Watch out so innocent people do not get hurt. Try not to kill of possible, will do us no good if people report of mutants committing mass murder. Watch eachothers back and don't take unnecessary risks, don't want our people to get killed.
>>39162327Noriko would be good at panic, she could overload most circuitsLaura is also good for panic but i think would be most useful in the hammer as she has experience doing this kind of stuffLucas should either go in the hammer as a counter measure to non-physical powers or with Noriko to act as a grounding station
>>39162327>>39162380>>39162400These two are good.>>39162393Lance Alvers. Avalanche from Evolution.
>>39162245Oh shit, if that Solana chick and Jono let loose they'll level half of the city. Chamber is basically a thermonuclear bomb held together with raw psychic power, if he goes all out this will not end well.
>>39162380Second, emphasize that we're doing this to keep the Sentinels off our backs
>>39162327Right. When the hammer hits, we'll be splitting into two groups. Julian will lead the large damage group, with Noriko and Lucas and Lance. They'll be dropping AOE and hitting as many people as possible. Hisako, Laura, and us will be on perimeter duty. If anyone tries to leave before we're done, we take them out. All time up to the arrival of the Triads will be spent on civilian evac. It's quite likely we'll level a block with this strike.
>>39162233With super aim ammo really isn't a problem. When you can bullseye high value places that lack proper fortification or armoring it doesn't take more than a shot or two. A revolver would be a good choice cause it's the hardest to damage or break. Of course guns are pretty useless for JJ because the optic blasts outclass them in every way but lethality as of right now. 5th level optic would only be outclassed by some really fuckhuge weaponry that only really shows up on sentinels and Starktech stuff. Also you can get some really nice compact revolvers that still have a good deal of punch while remaining hidden without issue. Smuggling an AK under your count is far more difficult than strolling in with a handgun stashed somewhere on your person.
>>39162327>anything you’d like to bring up or change?Everyone comes back alive, make sure of that.>>or ask?How to keep in contact in case situation changes.&Do we have people who can keep an eye on the city jurisdictions and warn us in case of heat coming our way?
>>39162233We could always get a revolver equipped with exchangeable cylinders, that would solve that problem pretty handily.
i have an idea on what level 6 agility can doliu kang bicycle kick.
>>39162327>>39162400>>39162380And don't forget: no civiliansalways check those corners
>>39162380Dude this is going to be a nasty situation. Our own survival has to come first>inb4 someone calls me edgy
>>39162380>>39162400That goes especially for civvies.
>>39162327Minimize collateral damge, try to avoid any civilian deaths and infrastructure damage, and try to dump as many of the gangers as you can into the NYPDs lap. We want them to see us as less dangerous than the gangers we supplanted. I'd like to note as well that if we fuck this up and silvermane survives the fallout we will be so fucked after we welched on our deal.
>>39162520Speaking of, each team has at least one person with actual serious combat experience right? That's pretty important I think.
>>39162478Next level of Optic Force Blasts is when it really starts getting nasty. Severe deep tissue and bone damage, the beam itself can be as much as a meter in width, and it can change direction once in flight.
>>39162478Fair enough, but I still think we should get some sort of long-range weapon.
>>39162543I agree, which is why I added the caveat 'if your back is against the wall', but we should certainly try to keep casualties to a minimum
>>39162543Please, we have regen, and awesome durabi - wait, no, we don't, if we get shot we're pretty fucked.Maybe we should pick up a helmet and a vest or something, you know?
>>39162552We haven't welched actually. We're targeting the Triads right now. If we target Silvermane yeah there will be hell to pay and it may be best if we can convince Moony to take that operation on solo if it has to go down.
>>39162570JJ has his eyeballsHas Lucas figured out he can shoot lasers yet?
>>39162552We are only attacking triads son>>39160863>“There are thirteen major Triad properties on this side of the river, most of them concentrated along Northwestern Queens.”
>>39162570With the Telescopic Vision extra, we could potentially hit a target accurately from miles away (according to Crusty). It's not quite as fast as a bullet, but it also doesn't have the drop-off that a bullet does.
>>39162585Or evolve some armor already like a proper mutant.
Rolled 6 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>39162478Guns also have faster firing rate, which could mean more headshots per round. I think.I would say a small submachinegun like a tec-9 would be ideal for him. Concealable, fast firing rate, easy to find ammunition, can be dual wielded, and JJ's bullshit senses give it the firing range of an assault rifle. Not much stopping power granted, he would need bigger guns for things with enhanced armor.
>>39162570>>39162562Optic blasts go as far as we can see, right? Even without super telescoping vision we could probably accurately use eyebeams for a quarter mile or more. And the further we upgrade eyebeams the -smaller- they can be focused. You've been punched in the face, right? Imagine that much force but focused over the space of a fingertip. That would punch a hole in someone. We just focus eyeblasts down to bullet sized and we essentially fire bullets from our eyes at higher levels.I really just want high eyeblasts and telescoping vision, it'd be really nice to Darkseid (sorta) people from a mile away.
>>39162654It's always fun to BEHOLD someone when shit gets serious.
>>39162647>can be dual wieldedAny other time, ANY other time, I would call you a fucking moron. But JJ might be able to aim two guns at once accurately and quickly.
>>39162654Until Tier 3 powers are unlocked, Optic Force Blasts have the potential to be our single strongest ability in terms of sheer stopping power. Which, depending on how things go from this night onwards, might be rather useful.
>>39162654I'm all for being able to one-shot Sentinels from miles away.
>>39162654the best potential comes when faced with a sentinal horde.The hell are they going to do if several million dollar machines blow up before they even spot their target? Rebuilding only helps so many times. Eventually they would be forced to move to power armor suits with people in them as their primary. Which is a hell of allot better than giant murder machines.
>>39162713>>39162712>>39162689You know, guys, I give you shit all the time about power choices, but I fucking love you guys for choosing eyebeams.
>>39162713At that point, wouldn't they call in the Avengers or something?
>>39162713>>39162712>>39162689>>39162745If only it could actually put down Kimura. Still, I'm fine with shocking her to death if need be
>>39162745I still wish we had gotten phasing, it would have been so useful
>>39162754>Avengers flying to the scene>Suddenly all their stuff starts being blasted by blue beams that seem to always find their mark and actively change direction to do so
>>39162745You can't go wrong with eye beams.>>39162713>>39162754Well, ideally JJ won't be in a situation where he needs to take on hordes of Sentinels, but upgrading Force Blasts as a cautionary measure would still probably be a good move. I'm not sure if the Avengers would be called in unless it was actually necessary, and even then I have to wonder if JJ couldn't try to talk to Cap.
>>39162754Probably, but we don't show up on anything short of in air sonar.And good fucking luck getting that to function in a city.
>>39162754>>39162713If that happened, things would already escalate to at least national level, and we might get support from some like minded mutants
>>39162797Or we could get Lucas to vibrate her to death or help us hold her down under the water.Or we get Kevin to hold her barehanded.Or we get Gaby to teleport away with half of her body.
>>39162797if we max claws we could use eyebeams to force our claws into her
>>39162797We could probably just drown her if we need to. Not like she can overpower us.>>39162810You know, I liked phasing, the idea was pretty sweet and I saw the utility, but looking back I see exactly how much of a crutch it would have been, and phasing out of everything isn't too much fun.
>>39162830I can't remember the sauce, but I think it was confirmed we still wouldn't be able to penetrate.
>>39162797I'm >>39162828 and I didn't mean for that to sound sarcastic or dickish.Just realized I sound like a douchebag in that post and I would like to apologize. I tried to list off other ways we could kill her.
>>39162862No, that's fine, thank you for apologizing. It's good to keep abreast of multiple ways of killing Kimura. That bitch needs to go down.
>>39162815Cap is currently in the middle of a political firestorm since he's calling the MCA on its shit. I imagine if he were even a part of that strike force talking with him would be a very good option and then we find out its US Agent.
>>39162852>Not like she can overpower us.You'd think that, but if Laura could turn us into a broken mess of limbs quivering on the ground despite us having the weight and strength advantage, I don't want to say with any certainty that we could simply manhandle Kimura and force her underwater, even assuming we were anywhere near water when she shows up to begin with.
>>39162889B-but what about her Freudian excuse guys? She had a terrible childhood! We should try to save her!oh, and have we paid for those gloves yet?
>>39162889>That bitch needs to go down.We can all agree on that.
>>39162897Remember that guy the other thread who was talking about proper grapples.Would really come in handy, eh?
I know we won't vote for it right now, but I cannot wait to get hand eyes. Hadoken is in our grasp guys.
>>39162889Does Kimura's indestructibility extend to her muscles and bones or is it just her skin?If it's just her skin, could we stab her in the mouth?
>>39163000For some reason I doubt that will ever be voted for
>>39162986Oh! Speaking of, didn't Crusty say boxing is a good way to control our strength in the ask?
>>39163000While doing hadoken is tempting, hand eyes is really really stupid. I am sorry anon, but i will not vote for it.
>>39163047It's not that dumb if it can increase our vision so that we practically have a panoramic cone of sight. Crusty did say they work like normal eyes, so I imagine they would also have all the same sense abilities.
>>39163000>hand eyes>Hadoken is in our graspI see what you did there.
>>39163000Waste of points, in my opinion, and way too fucking weird. I'd rather just spend those points upgrading Optic Blast directly.
>>39163047Yeah, the only use I can see for hand eyes is seeing around corners or where our head can't fit. But all we need to do to bypass that is have a reflective surface and maybe a light.Also I imagine getting poked in a hand eye hurts just as much as being poked in your actual eye.
>>39163000How would you use your hands normally if you had eyes on them? Doesn't seem worth it at all, especially when compared to other mutations
>>39163103Also echolocation. That's pretty good for "seeing" around corners.
>>39163000>hand eyesNah.Not worth the X-point. It'd be better spent on telescopic vision.
>>39163091Our Echolocation gives us full 360 degree vision. So there's that.
>>39163103I wonder if the eyelids for the hand eyes are reinforced? They'd have to be, or we'd scratch our eyes if we clenched our fist
>>39163125True dat. But spying on Kev x Gabby sex with echo isn't as fun as actually seeing it, you know?I'm not serious, they can bang without us watching like creeps, thank you very much!
Is Crusty kill?
>>39163167This reminds me, isn't JJ pretty much -the best- at sex because of his enhanced kine-whatever the fuck that lets him read people?
>>39163102Same, and I don't care one way or another for Optic Blast. JJ has enough creepy crap due to his body, hand-eyes are...ugh...
>>39162889Photo 4 + Optic Blast her out of earth's atmosphere. Decompression should take care of her, that or the lack of air.
>>39163047We should electromagnetic vision instead, I have a feeling that will come in hand in creating enough accurate arcs to ionize the trigger scent
>>39163202That with level 5 agility, enhanced contortion, muscle memory, and healing factor. And maybe some of his other powers, depending how "adventurous" they're feeling taser hands.
Let's just get mind powers when we hit T3 powers and mind break her.
>(1/???)Before you leave, Laura insists that everyone synchronizes their watches. It takes some time, but somehow, it seems to ground the whole situation, make it seem more real. You and the team head out North.Luckily, you’re not the most conspicuous bunch. Mostly lacking neat little peripherals like wings, vestigial limbs, glowing hands/eyes/hair, and other such mutant-y aesthetics, you by en large appear to be normal human teens doing normal human things… like advancing grimly down the streets, adrenaline roaring in your ears. You’re the biggest problem, and most of your issues are solved by a big hoodie and a set of shades.It’s nearly ten on the dot by the time you make it to your destination. The building itself is a few blocks South of 47th avenue, very nearly within sight of the river. It’s a surprisingly modern building – a high rising stack of offices, its outsides edged with a chrome finish and the spacious lobby on the bottom floor decorated according to a kind of Apple-eque, minimalist approach to feng shui. Luckily, the location isn’t residential, but there are passersby, and the French restaurant on the opposite side of the road still has a good number of customers hanging around.You guys loiter nearby, watching attentively. Half an hour passes in anxious silence. The first wave of texts starts coming in, and then the second, and the third – the other teams have gone to work. “Well…” You smile weakly. “No turning back now.
>>39163202Herc and other superhumans are better, JJ's just really good
>>39163264Kind of not fond of that either, i want JJ to have a few surprises later on. We can easily ionize the trigger scent using molecular vision extrap anyway, since the scent particles are actual molecules in the air and can be seen by it.
>(2/3)It’s an hour before the first van arrives. You pretend not to pay attention while various men, mostly in suits, rush inside the building. Soon after, a trio of long, nondescript black cars pulls up nearby, and assorted personnel – most of them flecked with dust and looking thoroughly harried – follow after the first group. Several more cars arrive, all of them appearing in triplets (what’s up with that?). Soon enough you start seeing groups of men moving heavy boxes in from further up the street, the lack of parking spaces having forced them to idle their vehicles a short way away. “One hour from now.” Whispers Laura. Your gut tightens into a ball of fire. You wait. Each of your teammates deals with the nerves in their own way. Noriko chats with Lucas – incessantly and about anything from the colour of the nearby buildings to the weather. Julian taps his foot impatiently. Alvers, the earthquake boy, has a tendency to keep rolling his shoulders. Hisako and Laura check the time almost every other minute.You just stand there and boil up in your own skin. Eventually, Laura’s watch begins to chirp. You feel a nervous breath pass through the entire group. “It’s time.” “Alright then…” You flex your fingers open and closed, claws pushing through the soft flesh at their tips. “As we discussed.” Noriko steps forward, spreading her arms wide, and takes on a look of intense concentration.
>>39163316That's neuroelectrical vision anon, not electromagnetic.
>>39163336ah, in which case by all means.
>(3/3)Visible arcs of electricity snap momentarily through the air, coiling around her like eels. Every car alarm on the street goes off, and then, almost as quickly, falls silent. The lights go out across the block. Noriko seethes with voltaic power, her eyes burning a bright, electric blue. Her outline flickers and shimmers, never quite seeming to stay in the same spot. Gradually, she begins to feed some of the gathered power into Lucas’ outstretched palm. And now… the rest of the plan. >[ ] Wait till there’s less civilians, get Alvers to bring the building down. >[ ] Have Julian fling a few Triad cars into the building.>[ ] Have Julian lift a few Triad cards as mobile cover while you blast between the gaps with your eyes.>[ ] Write in.

So, I was looking through the list of powers when I saw Tactile Telekinesis.The example given does not illustrate how useful that ability is. Any object that we pick up will not fall apart. We can juggle cars.
>>39163356>>[ ] Wait till there’s less civilians, get Alvers to bring the building down. >>[ ] Have Julian fling a few Triad cars into the building.
>>39163509Yes, and there are other ways of doing that without risking civilians or major property damage.
>>39163550If they didn't get the fuck out beforehand then they're retarded.
>>39163577>news at 11>muties killed several mentally undeveloped citizens by bringing down an apartment
>>39163577Well, they are Marvel citizens...>>39163596It's an office building controlled by the Triad, not residential.
>>39163596Texas will be happy
>>39163621Still, the point stands. Any stragglers who aren't Triads might be seriously impaired or preoccupied.
>[X] Have Julian lift a few Triad cards as mobile cover while you blast between the gaps with your eyes.>[X] Wait till there’s less civilians, get Alvers to bring the building down.>[X] Also clever stuff with Noriko.The first phase started with Noriko. The second phase, also, starts with Noriko. Her hair swaying like azure fire, she heavers her arms about, directing an arc of lighting across the various cars and vans parked under the shadow of the Triad building. They ignite immediately, exploding into skeletonized pyres of tortured metal and roiling flame. All around you, people scream and shout and hustle by one another to get away – you hear screams of “mutant!” and “mutie!” and even “super fight, superhero fight!” as the street erupts into chaos, people spewing from the restaurant further down the road. Those that (for some reason or another) stuck around quickly decide that that’s a bad idea when four of the flaming cars, apparently of their own accord, lift themselves off the tarmac and turn on their sides, levitating in place. Beside you, Julian grinds his teeth, his eyes lit with an eerie green radiance.You spot movement in the lobby, a bustle of men and women heading for the door, gripping – get this – various archaic blades in their hands. Their faces are concealed behind leering, demoniac masks of white and blue and red. You feel the pressure build behind your eyes…>Roll THREE D20’s!>I’ll be taking the third from the first post, the second from the second post, and the first from the third post

>>39163843damn. That sucks.>>39163833I need to do reading comprehension.
These dice are making my brain hurt. Why does he want them in such a fashion, what purpose does it serve? I can't think any harder, damn it!
>>39163769I'm confused, do you want us to roll three d20s three times in a row, one d20 three times in a row?
>>39163839Why even roll 3d20 in each post if we're only taking one from any given post, why not just roll 3 individual d20s?
>4,19,7one out of three isn't bad I guessstill,a perfectly good 20 wasted...
>>391638703 d20s 3 times in a row.How hard is that to understand?
>>39163865to randomize it as much as possible i suppose.
The numbers are 4, 19, and 20, assuming only the posts that actually rolled 3d20 are being counted.
>>39163774Because in the Marvelverse Texas is surprisingly chill. All the muties in Austin and Houston are probably better off than in NYC. Out in the little towns and the countryside I bet it's filled with the typical good old boy bullshit you'd expect though.
>>39163769Crusty what the fuck is up with your dice system? Why the weird setup?
>>39163889Ah damn, 7 instead of 20, missed that one.
>Change things up>Panic and confusion aboundsPlayers. Not even once.
>>39163896>Somewhere in Texas, there is a mutant who throws tanks around effortlessly and breathes fire who is just baling hay.
>>39163882Ok, but if he's taking only the first from the first post, then why are there even 2 other d20s in that post? Couldn't what he said also make sense (and have less uncounted dice rolls) if it was the first check being resolved by the third post, and the third check being resolved by the first post?
Crusty is using the 3rd roll from>>39163788 4 2nd roll from>>39163800 191st roll from>>39163801 7

>>39163938>>39163943These dice make me angry. We wasted 20's. Such is the fate of JJ, I suppose.
>>39163906Chill out man he's just mixing it up
>>39163950Does it really matter?In the future Crusty can limit it to 1d20 rolls but there is really no quantifiable difference in the numbers themselves.and 3d20 is the best.
>>39163973it's still retarded
>No best ofHope the DCs are low. Low enough for a 7.
>>39163973But why? Why didn't he introduce this mechanic in a less serious situation, and ease us into it?
So... we are getting Healing Vitae next right? No particular reason.

>>39163973It's still dumb, especially because there's no consistency on why he picked the rolls that he did.

>>39164015Wings 3, Telescopic Vision, or Optic Force Blasts 3.
>>39164043out the fucking window apparently.
>>39163769Why not just best of three for each?
>>39163926It's not that we don't understand the way the dice work (sort of, bear with me >>39163882 >>39163931), it's that we don't understand the purpose of rolling the dice so weirdly.
>>39163769>>I’ll be taking the third from the first post, the second from the second post, and the first from the third postWhy? genuinely curious.
Calm down, await the shit to hit the fan.I am sure our allies will cover for us.This is just getting started.

We don't tolerate hate talk on this ranch."
>>39164064Don't forget Shadow Field, Photo, Animal Affinity, Adhesive Touch, and a few others.
>>39164082I unnoI don't know why people are demanding consistency or best of though.This is literally no different from a 3d20.
>>39164088Actually, we -missed- one twenty because it was late, we wasted the first twenty because apparently the first post only the third die counts. So, two, technically.
>This amount of butthurt over a minor thingYou people need to lighten up

>>39164142Failed rolls aren't as fun to read as success rolls I think is what it is.
>4, 19, 7You vision turns blue and the air shrieks, a line of bright blue light scything through the lobby. Annoyingly, most of the frantic men and women inside manage to duck under its arc (though you do make very short work of the furniture), only a few of them getting caught and bodily flung across the room. As they near the glass doors at the front of the building a few of them pull pistols from their jackets, and the chatter of gunfire fills the air. To his credit, it would seem that a lot of Julian’s arrogance has something solid behind it. He moves the (bulletproof, you can’t help but note) cars in his telekinetic grasp with expert care, seeming to almost preempt each rattle of gunfire. Only a few stray bullets make it past the improvised barrier, streaking harmlessly through empty air. Behind the main group, Alvers clenches his fists, bringing his foot down hard on the pavement. You feel the earth shift deep below. Letting loose another blast op optic force, you manage to send a trio of masked weirdos hurtling off their feet, but in general they’re a lot faster than they look, and they manage to power their way through the front doors, those more intrepid amongst them smashing through the glass panes that serve as walls for the ground floor.>[ ] Continue blasting at them while Julian shield your group. >[ ] Have Noriko send an arc of electricity through them. >[ ] Have Julian push them back with his levitated cars.>[ ] Write in.>explanation: each roll was for a different action.

I went backwards with the selection because there's no point in the first poster rolling three dice if you're going to select the firstBecause it was not best of three, and rather just a selection of a single roll, what purpose did the first two dice of the first poster's roll serve? They were both completely ignored. The fist die had no bearing on the outcome of our first shot. In each of the 3 3d20 posts only one die was counted, so why not just do 3 separate 1d20 posts?
>>39164217Honestly just having three people roll a d20 gives the same result. Each d20 is the result of an action, the extra 2 and chose x from y seems a bit excessive.Instead of having >12>3>18You get>12, 3, 18>1, 5, 15>11, 11, 13Then have to drop two of the die from each of those groups.
Julian might end up doing his own thing anyway.Are we at eye beam 2 or 3? I can't remember.
>>39164282True, but good luck getting people to vote for it with all the other more tantalizing options.
>>39164320We're at 2. One more level and we can change the beam direction in mid-flight and start doing some serious bodily harm (as well as being able to blast through reinforced materials).

>>39164316>>39164318I guess he was just experimenting? I'd rather prefer just rolling three twenties in a row, less confusion that way
>>39164352We definitely need to point our next points into it, a reliable lethal ranged attack and the ability to shoo around corners etc are both invaluable.
>>39164377No beef with him for trying new things, of course, but yeah, just taking flat first three rolls, no best of bull gives the same result with less* randerp from the dice.*Randerp from /tg/ dice is impossible to avoid.

>>39164501>>39164520Uh, where are you getting that third number from?Best of three from the first two rolls is 12, 15, right? Not us taking three numbers from the first two?So wouldn't the third number be an 18, 20, or 2?

>>39164634>>39164638Yes, I know, and no it didn't say that. It said best of three from the first two rows, mean he picks two of the best two rolls from the those two rolls

>>39164634When rolls are almost universally done in groups of three it's odd when suddenly only two groups would be used. That may be where confusion is coming from.
>>39164655That seems really, really unlikely.You people are making my head fucking hurt.
>>39164655Why didn't we just roll 2d20 then. I think you are being delusional. Just let that 20 disappear anon.

>>39164836Was it dusty?
>(1/2)>12, 15You keep up the pressure, sending intermittent bursts of luminous force through the occasional gaps in Julian’s barrier. You knock several men down, the constant danger posed by your gaze keeping the gaggle of masks from making any meaningful progress out into the road. A few of them attempt a dash along the street, trying to run around Julian’s barrier, but you cut them off with a quick blast, knocking the first two runners’ feet out from under them and causing the rest of seriously reconsider that course of action.Their gunfire continues to patter harmlessly off the multiple chassis floating in the middle of the road. Seems a little like a stalemate at the moment. Luckily, you have something else in reserve. Grunting in exertion, Alvers stamps once more, and the ground beneath you begins to shake. A labored growl tears loose from his throat and his eyes roll up in their sockets, the thunder under the earth beginning to twist and flex in ways no natural tectonic shifts ever could. The earth buckles beneath the building, its frame groaning audibly, cracks beginning to spread like lines in a map across its glass exterior.
>>39164836Did you literally dig it from the ground? Might be why.
>(2/2)With one final stomp, Lance caves the ground beneath the building inward, the tarmac simply creasing downward in one great, ear-splitting moment of tectonic thrust. With a sound like rolling thunder, the building collapses down on itself, the first few levels bucking inward before the top floors give way and come crashing down upon those below, the quickly disintegrating concrete forming the innards of the building gaining momentum and force with each layer that tumbles downward. Hissing under his breath, Julian pulls the cars back, holding them over your group. There is a sound like rainfall as hundreds of tiny glass shards rain down on the roasted vehicles. A thick cloud of dust consumes the street, a few of your teammates coughing loudly. It’s a good few seconds before you start to hear the cries of men and women in brightly-coloured masks rushing across the street toward you, the first few of them emerging from the dust like creatures of myth transgressing into reality. Many of them are bleeding, thoroughly lacerated by shards of falling glass, but on them come nonetheless.What in the hell is wrong with these people?>[ ] Frontliners, charge!>[ ] Mow them down at range.

>>39165097Anything not likely to bring the MCA down on our fucking heads, maybe? And now that we've shown how much damage we can cause all it would take is one of our muties getting grabbed by the Triad to find out where we are.
>>39165056hardcore moralfags are really annoying sometimes
>>39165056What do you think happens in gang fights? especially with super powers?this isn't west side story mugga!
>>39165056You're right. We should've subdued them with the power of friendly diplomacy, what were we thinking?
>>39165225Holy fuck, this isn't about morality, this is about not inviting more shit on our fucking heads by showing we can level a fucking building and murder dozens of people.
Does JJ remember Creepers old signature sign or tell or mark that a job was done by his guys?Cause if so, putting that up would be hilarious.
>>39165225I'm willing to bet these are the same people who wanted to go back and pay for those gloves/mittens.
>>39165215>Anything not likely to bring the MCA down on our fucking heads, maybe?Like what?'Cause they've got their equipment around anyway. Eventually they'll figure out that mutants are around, anyway.
>>39165228>this isn't west side story mugga!But imagine if it was.
>>39165187Pretty sure he was joking, retard
>>39165225Not a moralfag here, but I liked doing the low profile and stealthy stuff much better.
>>39165254Seconded so hard.>>39165161See the post I linked to above.

>>39165254I also second the false flag
>>39165246Or just beat them up, maybe kill one or two if we had to. It's too late now though
>>39165316I was really hoping I wouldn't have to point out my own sarcasm anon
>>39165254That's just being a dick.>But it dicks over CreeperI approve.
>>39165225I don't think it had anything to do with morality man, just the approach
>>39165258Like keeping things relatively low-key and stealthy, since we are hiding not only from the MCA, but also Creeper and Kimura's groups. By going all out, we will be drawing attention we have been consistently trying to avoid. All it will take is a report that a large group of what seem to be teenage muties have started attacking gangs selling Jack. Now, who recently lost a large shipment of young mutants, and who was the cause of this loss I wonder?
>>39165338Sarcasm in text doesn't work, especially when it looks exactly like something that people genuinely believe.
>>39165338I get that it was sarcasm anon, I was offering a suggestion to the true intent of your comment (I.E. what should we have done?)
>>39165362I have to agree on keeping it covert.The last thing we need are a couple sentinels showing up and fucking us right up the ass.
>>39165362I mean, being stealthy would've been nice, but the rest of the mutants have pretty overt powers.
>>39165414>>39165362I was just wondering why he didn't have a numbers vote to clarify, it was pretty contentious
>>39165414True, but if we'd stop and thought it through instead of going off half-cocked we probably could have come up with something better. But whats done is done. Let's just hope it works out well enough.
>>39165414>>39165455With Julian, Alvers, Noriko, Hisako, how could you be stealthy?
>>39165414Julian's entire group is pretty much all about overt, and the Corsairs are packing some serious heat as well. If people had problems with shit getting loud, they should have voiced them back at the start when we were even considering getting them involved.
>>39165477By keeping out of sight and keeping it to hit and run tactics, instead of standing out in the open for all to see? The powers themselves are overt but their use and who has them doesn't necessarily have to be the same.
>>39165471Well, Laura's plan was all about striking fast and decisively. It's not poorly thought out, in the sense that it accomplishes what it sets out to, but it's really obvious.
>>39165516I don't think hit and run earthquakes would work, anon.
>>39165173>17>successWhat happens next is not pretty, though it does sort of remind you of fireworks. Julian brings the cars down, sweeping them along the road, fire and ash billowing in their wake. Many of the oncoming creeps manage to hurl themselves aside in the nick of time, but others are hit by an essentially a wall of very hard, very hot metal. Letting the pressure release behind your eyes, you let loose with a succession of quick, precise blasts, bludgeoning a number of them through the air, their masks shattering as waves of radiant force sock them straight in the face. Soon enough, most of the masks that aren’t unconscious are wishing they were, lying in crumpled, groaning heaps. You blink, the blue fugue receding from your vision. “We… did it?”You did. That is, of course, when the rubble begins to shift. You turn towards the tumbled remains of the Triad building, a “no way” building in your throat, and a whole layer of debris explodes upwards, dust and muck spiraling through the air. The silhouette of a tall, handsome man in his thirties rises from the rubble, lifting aside a topped pillar and casting it down with casual ease. He wears a white suit that seems to almost glow, his skin a dark, photo-negative shade of back. Bright, neat white hair adorns his head, the collapse seeming to have merely tussled it somewhat. He looks up from the ruins of the building with a weathered, severe look on his face, and his eyes focus upon the lot of you. “How annoying.”---------------------------------------------------------------------HMQ 114: END>Congratulations!

Okay, it seems like the vote comes down between the bankers and the shadow cabinet.So, as usual, numbered vote rules:Post nothing but number. Anything but the number, greentext or quotes or anything, gets your vote thrown out and Mr. Darcy comes to NTR you.So, post>1 for SHADOW FIELD>2 to BANK

How strong is Mr Negative? I only know that he's a Spider-Man villain
>>39165973Killing him does not get us good publicity. Which we can achieve if we keep him alive. Property damage tends to be forgiven in exchange for a crime lord.
>>39166014>Killing him does not get us good publicityEnd his tyranny than put him into the corrupt hands of Marvel Universe's legal system.
Fuck-off strong, enough to punch Spider-Man clean through two buildings with a single blow. He can also empower objects and his own minions, and corrupt minds to serve his bidding.
>>39166007Pretty sure he kicks Spider-Man's ass around. And since Spider-Man can kick JJ's ass, we're going to have to have everyone go all out.

>>39166166Someone above suggested pinning this on Creeper.
>>39166166>make it look like Kingpin's men did itHow?
>>39166151...Nooo, thats not how it works. Super-powered fights are more likely to make things worse than fix anything, since they pretty much showcase how dangerous rogue muties are.
>>39166166Oh yeah, because we definitely want to involve the fucking KINGPIN in this shit fiesta.Just shift the blame to Creeper, it's already known that he employs/is a mutant, and JJ would probably know how to actually put suspicion on his former boss anyway.
