You guess, with the Avengers away and the cops spread thin over the city, people have just learned to give these things a wide berth. You’re close enough to smell the spent casings and the lingering aroma of gunfire, but you don’t hear anything. Overhead, the immense well of nothing that dominates the sky seems to stare down at you, its edges seething with red fire. You generally try not to look up these days. It doesn’t take long for Noriko and Laura to find you – Laura’s nose is about as good as yours, after all, if not better. Roberto’s tagging along with them, looking more than a little sheepish about it. You can generally see why Noriko likes him; he’s a very pretty guy, with curly dark hair and a willingness to wear unnecessarily tight tops. Noriko waves as they approach. “Hey!” Putting on a bit of speed, she trots ahead of the others. “Lucas, my man, you bust some heads?” Lucas nods, maybe a little shyly, and the two knock knuckles, Noriko mouthing a silent “bam.” As Laura moves up beside you, you notice an odd scent in the air. She smells faintly of blood.“…You guys run into trouble on the way?” You ask. Noriko gives you a quizzical stare. “Nope. Why, we late or something?” “…No, nah …” You glance down at Laura. She meets your gaze with a curious, unblinking stare. “…Just wondering.” “Cool. What’s the plan, then?” >Present Time: 18:20 PM>Hunger Level: 4>Current Funds: $2,015>Solar Charge: 0/5>[ ] You just have to clear the Russians off the street.>[ ] You just have to draw some of the Russians away.>[ ] [insert] keeps the Russians busy while [insert] helps Daredevil.>[ ] Write in.

>[ ] You just have to clear the Russians off the street.
>>40321304>>[ ] You just have to clear the Russians off the street.
>>40321310The question is Which Supervillain.Is she attracted to MagnetoDoes she butt heads with the Juggernaught?Will she get list in a dream with Mastermind?Is she into being super cuddly with a big man like Blob?Would she be into denial play with Unas the Untouchable?Or, like Cyke, is she helping Jean fine tune her telekinetic manipulations?I just remembered Jean is Brotherhood in crusty verse.
>>40321304>[ ] You just have to clear the Russians off the street.
>>40321355It's not Magneto, Mastermind or Unus.I already asked about those and he said no. Granted, his opinion might have changed since then, but that's it.
>>40321395Certainly won't be blob. Not if hes the crazy cannibal version.And any other version is probably still out of the question mind.
>>40321427Even the crazy cannibal version got around. He had more than a handful of bastards in Ultimate U. The second Blob who got recruited into Quicksilver's brotherhood & Liz Allen FireStar.
>>40321457Yeah, but i doubt our sister is the kind of woman who would find him attractive.
>mfw Joyce doesn't recognize JJ when they meet and hits on him.
>>40321427If he's Claremont - modern idiot blob, yeah, he's a dumb fuck with nothing going on.If he's the original blob, he's a clever and strong badass who despite his big frame has probably had his share of strange because he's got that CONFIDENSE and leadership skills.If he's the blob that goes in the Evolution style of Alvers and Tabitha, then he's a sweetheart despite being a but slow on the uptake, also he grows up with an awesome goatee.
>>40321310And JJ has tried so hard to find her
>>40321499Maybe it's Wolverine Origins Blob
>>40321490"Hey there, dragon man, want to peel this knight out of her armor?""J-Joyce!""Wait, have we met?""Uh...hi sis,""No way, no fucking way! JJ? Look at you! All grown up and mutant and proud! Wait...I was just, oh god,"

She meets your gaze with a curious, unblinking stare. “…Just wondering.” Guess we're not gonna be hitting that for a few days at least.
>>40321304>[ ] [insert] keeps the Russians busy while [insert] helps Daredevil.JJ (and maybe Laura) is on hostage duty, everyone else should play it safe.
>>40321521Who was just superstrong and immovable in a generic way, and got fat due to guit.Actually he seemed real dumb when he was buff; and significantly smarter when he was chunk.
>>40321490>"Hey kid. You wanna /ss/?">"...">"Yeah, you got a beard, but you're short enough."(I assume Joyce is pretty above 6'2" now)
>[X] You just have to clear the Russians off the street.You shrug. You don’t exactly have a plan. It’s more of a mission statement, really. “Nothing special.” You answer. “We just need to get the Russians off the street. Daredevil’s dealing with the guys inside.” Noriko chuckles grimly. “It honestly cracks me up that you know Daredevil. I mean, seriously.” It doesn’t exactly crack you up. But, when you think about it, you do get this sort of surreal sort of feeling that the universe is slowly breaking up around you – or that it already has, and somehow you didn’t notice. The red sky doesn’t really help with that. You glance over at Roberto, who is pretty much keeping to himself, his hands stuffed in his pockets and his eyes wondering. “So…” You raise your voice a little, getting his attention. “Uh, remind me, what can you do again?” He smiles a little nervously. “Well, it’s like…” The way he describes his powers tells you he doesn’t really understand them all that well himself. What he does know is that he draws up sunlight, or maybe heat, and when he wants it can make him really tough and strong. You think for a moment. “How tough?” “…Not exactly sure?” He rattles off a low, tense laugh. “I’ve tried not to test that all too much. I can take a bullet, though.” Right then. >[ ] You’re gonna go ahead and check out the Russians. >[ ] Roberto bull in and draw their fire with [insert] following up. >[ ] You should all get on a rooftop and hit them from afar. >[ ] Write in.>Hot dogs down a hallway confirmed, where were you when Joyce abandoned her brother for super villan cock?I was writing hot sticky JoycexBrotherhood smut that I'll never share.

>>40321551>[ ] You’re gonna go ahead and check out the Russians.Recce is good
>>40321477Never know, maybe she drank the brotherhood kool aid and finds obvious freakier appearance mutants attractive.
>>40321551>[ ] You’re gonna go ahead and check out the Russians.Recon first.
>>40321551>[ ] You’re gonna go ahead and check out the Russians.
>>40321564Brotherhood Kool Aid is Magneto's personal spiel. Anyone who drinks that has several magnitudes of problems bigger than their partner preferences.. And considering he tends to keep the more human looking mutants on his team just like the X-men do, I imagine the 'ideal' form is not going to vary much.
>>40321525>>40321546then she sees JJ's ass and is no longer torn up about how she wanted to bone her brother
>>40321551>>[ ] You should all get on a rooftop and hit them from afar.Less glass on a roof.
>>40321551>check the Russians?Who has she tapped on the dark side?Or, is she too addicted to Jean's big huge throbbing brain?
>>40321604She tries to stealthily negotiate a threesome with JJ, herself and Laura, but Laura just stares with confusion at all the euphemisms and hand gestures that Joyce is using to get her point across.
>>40321604What has copying Peter's powers wrought?
>>40321638>What has copying Peter's powers wrought?Greatness
>>40321661>JJ finds a buffet.jpg
>>40321629You and I both know she would try to shove Laura out of the picture, Joyce is the protective and possessive kind of sister, dat ass and assuming JJ gets a real source of food by this time dat Adonis body will only make her want him to herself all the more
>>40321724Nah. Joyce would just make a teasing joke about how she always thought she'd find JJ with someone with a prettier name, like Timothy.
Who /claws/ here?
>>40321736That's not teasing, that's flat out cuntish.
>>40321755So Joyce personified?
>>403217474 points into Druid and 5-6 votes will be freed up for other powers.
>>40321776>i figured you were a faggot bro
>>40321795You're imagining it in a totally different way than I was.I was going with exactly what I wrote in a joking tone delivered with a smile.You took it as "Hurr durr, I thought you liked dicks."
>>40321777She was never mean to JJ.
>>40321837Remember how everyone but JJ and Joyce died in a fire and then they were seperated for years? I'm sure "hurr durr u like dong" is the perfect reaction to his girlfriend.
>>40321875you must have been an only childor a sensitive pussy
>>40321849Stopped chasing him to go play punisher, literally went and played brotherhood slut
>>40321875They are just having the usual creepy weird joking session that TG does.
>>40321784Druid is literally the stupidest thing ever. The Joshua tree will literally destroy civilization.There is a reason when there is a plot of "turn everyone into mutants" in the comics it's shown as a bad one and everybody that isn't insane is relieved when it's stopped.Not to mention we need offensive abilities now or all our close combat training is useless against anybody with any toughness, as shown against Negative man. The druid shit is the non time sensitive stuff, even if you are dumb enough to want to do it, at least do it after we're capable of leveraging our best abilities in combat with some actual offensive capabilities.
>>40321875As a playful joke told only to JJ after the emotional moment they have when being reunited? It's fine.
>>40321901some one is always butt hurt over powers
>>40321894Yeah, only pussies would care if their only surviving family member that they haven't seen for a good portion of your life reacts to your significant other by calling you a prancing lala homoman
>>40321897you do realize she thinks he is dead right?
>>40321724I'm waiting for JJ to land a role in one of those Mutant pornos made by his boss in that nightclub. Because you just know a copy of it will wind up in the section of the brotherhood Joyce was assigned to.
>>40321928If you can't tell the difference between ribbing and an insult then I guess you were both
>[X] You’re gonna go ahead and check out the Russians. Weighing your options, you decide to have a quick peek in on what you’re dealing with.You fade out of sight and make your way around the block, clambering your way across one of the alleys zig-zagging through the mottled old apartment complexes clustered together throughout this side of Queens. You’ve come to think of these places as sort of like the permeable tissues surrounding major arteries – dense at first glance but full of trickleways and backdoors once you have the eye for them. The eye, and a set of weird sticky Spider-Man hands. As you approach the site if the siege, you pick out the sounds of shouting – it’s just one voice, but it’s loud and uncouth enough to make up for the lack of support. Sticking to the side of one of the buildings that veers out of an alley onto the street, you peek your head out, staying a good ways from the ground. Dark, balaclava-faced shapes cluster the street. You count under your breath, cringing your way all the way up to twenty. Their weapons – some kind of submachinegun you can’t put a name to – are idle in their hands, but the building they’ve surrounded, an old bar lit by neon signs, is pretty torn up. The one doing the shouting is at the front. He’s a tall, lean man in his early twenties, his head capped with wild blonde hair and his body rippling with tightly-packed muscle. His lack of a shirt reveals a crisscrossing meshwork of complex tattoo-artistry, most of it utterly esoteric to you. Beside him are two younger figures – the scarred girl from before and a kid that looks almost like a shrunken down version of the older man. Neither look happy. In fact, the general impression you get from the whole scene is that everyone there is treading on eggshells around Mr. Shirtless. You kinda wish you knew what Russian bullshit he was shouting. Digging your phone out, you dial up Laura. >What’s the plan, guys?
>>40321897During the punisher shenanigans she had no leads, during the brotherhood shit she was lied to and told JJ was dead.JJ has almost absolute faith in Joyce. The crippling heart break when she refuses to believe he's alive or thinks he's an idiot for not being a full on murder hobo will be delicious.
>>40321939"Oh my god, JJ is alive!""Oh my god, he's a mutant!""Oh my god, what is he doing?!""Oh my god, he is flexible..."
>>40321939>it's her favorite porno>she shlicks to it damn near everynight >finds out is JJHow does she react /tg/?
>>40321972>What’s the plan, guys?Tell Laura the plan, see if she can translate whatever Russian bullshit he's saying and ask what she thinks we should do.
>>40321918Nah, just incredulous that people are still obsessed over something for seemingly zero reason. Seriously, why do people actually want the druid thing? Everything before JT is pointless, and actually using the JT is society destroying villain level shit.As bad as shit is for mutants ,turning everyone into mutants is something only someone incredibly evil or incredibly stupid would do as a solution, because it's not a solution. It turns the situation from "shit is bad for most mutants" to "shit is horrific for literally everybody because there is now total anarchy".
>>40321988horrified till she gets a good look at his ass>>40321972regroup for coordinated assault snipe glass girlthen stampede the mooksthen take on tattoo crew
>>40321972Invisible bricks.Take out the glass girl and then the goons, let the power folks get distracted looking for us.Others get called in if shit goes to pot.
>>40322011you sound butt hurtand why are you going off on tangents about Joshua tree? I didn't mention it, you did.also>implying things will ever be good for mutants ever
>>40321972ask her if she knows russian
>>40321988The ensuing sonic scream would blow out every window pane in a 10 mile radius.She never specifies if it was a scream of horror or orgasmic pleasure.
>>40321972Invisible with Laura & Roberto in the middle and star swinging and let Norkio and Lucas provide ranged support. Have Laura deal with Tattoos.Also, JJ should leave his shades behind before going in.
>>40322036The answer is both.
>>40321304Is it that time of the month for Laura then?
>>40321972>take them out hard and fast. If miss glass is afraid of captain shirtless then he is the primary target. Glass girl is secondary.Sneak attaKo hard and fast.
>>40322011curing all illness is going to destroy society?fuck man I thought I had good weed. what are you smoking?
>>40322036>>40322057with an ass like JJ's, you should all know which one it would be
>>40322034Why are you bothering to respond if you're not actually going to make any points, just claim that I'm butthurt when I'm stating stuff pretty civilly.Is it just your defense mechanism or something?
>>40321972Roberto and Lucas tank while Noriko and JJ take out some mooks from range and hit Glass Girl first.Laura sneaks around and takes them out silently.
>>40322075It'll destroy big pharm, which will upset the economy severly. I mean anon is retarded but curing diseases will fug shit up
>>40322075>>40322110It turns people into mutants you retards. The curing happens with repeated consumption. The X gene activation happens immediately.
>>40322093>Roberto dies instantly>noriko gets shot while staring at his dead body
>>40322087you're going off on tangents and using pessimistic hypothetical scenarios also this power has dedicated shitposters against (remember that guy that dropped the quest over AA getting voted in?)why should I take you seriously?
>>40322126Yeah, it's a real bad thing, horrible, I mean look at JJ, he's literally a withering barely alive husk with nothing to live for, oh wait
>>40322130>Roberto dies instantly>>40321551>“…Not exactly sure?” He rattles off a low, tense laugh. “I’ve tried not to test that all too much. I can take a bullet, though.”
Okay, so, the gist I'm getting is >take out glasses girl (can't catch a break) first>Roberto and Lucas spearhead>Noriko and Laura mop upIf that's okay, I'll end the next post with an option for your engagement after the results are known.
>>40322142>Fruit borne from plant life mutated via JJ’s Chlorophyll ability can now induce X-gene activation in flatscans. Continued consumption can correct major genetic disorders, improve miscellaneous qualities (like eyesight) and heal complex conditions such as cancer or Alzheimer’s.>can now induce X-gene activation in flatscans.Hurp de durpdy durpdy durr.
>>40322153sounds goodpoor glass chick
>>40322075Pretty sure playing mutation russian roulette is a terrible idea. Not all mutant powers are useful or safe. The guy who ended up as nothing but a flaming skeleton comes to mind.
>>40322153To be fair, she does have a horrifying power.
>>40322075>>40322110It wouldn't actually get rid of stuff like infections, the common cold, stress related conditions, etc etc etc. It would still shit on the pharmaceutical industry though.
>>40322150A bullet, they have submachine-guns, he barely understands his powers.
>>40322149>>40322145>Giving everybody super powers of literally unknowable levels and kinds will have no bad results.>Society will operate just fine, you're just being pessimistic.There's being optimistic and then there's being stupid.
Just here to say thanks, Crusty, for making me read New X-Men. See you in the archives.
>>40322110destroying one industry does not crash society.also fuck society this is Homeless Mutant quest mother fucker society has fucking failed we should rebuild
>>40322199He said he could take a bullet.Why not many bullets?
>>40322209Ignorance is bliss
>>40322212You underestimate how severly the pharmacy industry going under would fuck the industry
>>40322153Sounds good to me.
>>40322075people just have shit talk things they don't likeits like a political campaign, looking at one guy bringing up his doomsday worries over Joshua tree so he can extend his shit talking about druid.if we get 2 x-points today, we could end Druid today and 5-6 votes could get freed up to support other powers but some would just rather argue about them until the end of the quest.I guess anons don't like realpolitik
>>40322213Why can't Kevlar vests take sustained fire? Because he runs on sun juice, he'll run out
>>40322244I think all the new omega level mutants running around doing whatever the fuck they wanted effectively creating a new order where what mutation you end up with determines the power you have within society would fuck things up enough that no industry would matter much any more.
>>40322264Kevlar =/= Mutant sun powers
>>40322252>If you just give me everything that I want>You can have what you want!I'm more a fan of phasing myself.
>>40322252Wait, so you want druid but you don't want JT endgame?What do you even want it for then? Do you just want to burn points away?
>>40322294that's every powersperg pitch in a nutshellit could end today and we could find new shit to argue overlike shadowfield or forearm barbs
>>40322322Forearm blades are useless without upping Natural Weapons though, which is the thing we need to up anyway to be able to take on people with any toughness.
>>40322322Or.. we could spend points on Forearm barbs or shadowfield now and not waste points in druid.You're just repeating the same thing.>Give me what I want now!>You can have what you want later!I'd rather vote for Shadowfield or forearm barbs. Or wings. Or Bank. The bank is always a nice option.
>>40322315I like JT but right now I feel that's more for later on and things like flight 3 and optic force blast and maybe natural weaponry take some precedence
>JJ will never have a harem
>>40322376Good.Harem is always shit.
>>40322362So why are you arguing to vote for Druid powers now rather than the ones you actually want now?
>>40322281>>I think Stop you not to good at that your just assuming what will happen
>>40322376Does he really need one? I mean initially I liked Noriko more than Laura. But that's said and done with.
>>40322357Forearm barbswhy do we want more obvious bull shit?shadowfield is ok>>40322362no I love being crack ass bitch JJ
>>40322376Just wait for Laura to get axed and waifu Layla.
“…Remember the girl with the glass powers?” There is a brief pause, followed by a quiet “Yes.” “Well, she’s here, and she brought friends.” You wait for a moment while Laura conveys this information to the others, sparing little detail in regards to the scope and range of the supposed mutant’s ability to levitate terrifying lethal legions of glass. You’re a little surprised when you don’t hear anyone voicing a desire to make like a tree and get back to the comfort of the Scar. By the time she’s back on the receiver, you’ve had a minute or two to turn your mission statement into an actual plan of engagement. “So, what I was thinking was…” First things first, get rid of the glass witch. Sorry, weird little scarred girl, but your power is just too horrible. Then Roberto can bulletproof his way in with Lucas and start tossing around Russians. While their attention’s on the bricks, Noriko and Laura can hit them. You can actually hear Laura nodding minutely along on the other end of the phone. When you’re done, she simply relays your plan to the others, and you wait until you can hear them coming to the edge of one of the nearby alleys. You give the girl with the unfortunate powers a very hard stare. >Combat Check>DC15>+3 modifier
>>40322384Why are harems always shit? I really don't get where all the hate comes from. It strikes me as a pretty reasonable way to compromise in a collective game with waifus.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>40322385because I want the druid powersI pretty much have been since they've been an option and I really feel like that could be achieved today.flight, ofb. nobody's shitposted on the ask.fm on why crusty would "ruin the game with those stupid powers"its somewhat been a point of division and we could put that behind us today>>40322376sometimes harem can worksometimes it can't this is one of those times it can't. too much spaghetti.>>40322457

>>40322403Are you kidding me? You think turning everyone into mutants wouldn't collapse society? How? Seriously explain to me how you could have everyone have superpowers of hugely variable difference where some are effectively gods, and not have these gods do whatever they want? Just look a the shit powerful mutants can do right now within the setting and get away with, now multiply their number massively.How would you not turn society into a system by which your power within it is effectively determined by the level of your mutation? Does the tree remove human nature and turn everybody into robots now?
>smell blood So is she cutting again or is it that time of the month>tfw huge pain tolerance so zero whinging
>>40322457>>40322477>>40322485>>40322479That was almost very bad.
>>40322470Quest becomes collect the waifu's.Instead of having one character with a semi-believable relationship.It becomes a mishmash of collecting girls and arranging them by cup sizes and personality traits.>>40322455If.. she had been older and before Laura. She probably is best girl.
>>40322488Stop rolling, your luck is dead
>>40322508broke her hymen masturbating maybe?
>>40322455Reminder that Layla totally has a crush on JJ now.
>>40322550Did she get a look at dat ass?
>>40322542She was visited by a pretty little pixie who did that for her anon.
>>40322550Hahaha, and how do you figure that?
>>40322470Also the fact every quest seems to do harem instead of a normal relationship. Which to be frank, is a better read.
>>40322566I will literally eat pixie.
>>40322550I must have missed that. When did this happen?
>>40322568Not him. I can't point out any specifics at the moment but she tends to cling to him and snuggle up to him whenever she gets the chance.
>>40322568Relationship level nerd. The love is in the air
>>40322585Anon's making shit up on the fly.Layla probably sees JJ more like a big brother considering.
>>40322550>>40322568>>40322585>>40322593>>40322597It's either a crush or she thinks of him as a father figure.'Cause she's at Steadfast.
>>40322576it doesn't count if its another girl>>40322569from what I've seen, its been quite the opposite. tg is usually staunchly monogamous.
>>40322597Considering nothing faggot, the love is real.
>>40322550No she doesn't. She thinks of him as an older brother. Her having relationship level 4 doesn't mean romantic feelings. Crusty said Layla has level 4 with Noriko and she doesn't have a crush on the asian girl.
>>40322594Relationship level is how well folks get on. Not if they want to jump each others bones.
>>40322597I think so toobut if she sees that ass...
>>40322602I don't care if it counts, she touched my waifu, she's fugging dead kiddo
>>40322011Okay, JT turning into EVERYONE into mutants isn't going to happen, and if and when JJ ever found out about the primary effects of the fruit he likely wouldn't willingly force people to eat it. More over, there's a clear vector that causes the mutation. You eat the fruit, you turn into a mutant. No one who knows about it and isn't a mutant is going to approach the fruit lightly. I don't really want to continue the sperg argument, but damn man your logic is shit. This isn't like Magneto flipping a switch and turning everyone into a mutant. It will still have a big impact but it won't cause the world to immediately bottom out. Chill
>>40322594Layla has had relationship level 4 with Noriko longer than she has with JJ. Does Layla also have a crush on her?
>>40322636She's straight so no.
>>403224951 not every one will get or want the magic fruit.2 we have no idea the power level or powers people would get at all3 mother fucker every dumb mother fuckers always says things will be worse, or not work go fuck your self, or hope for the best.http://listverse.com/2007/10/28/top-30-failed-technology-predictions/http://www.bible.ca/pre-date-setters.htmhttp://www.cnbc.com/id/43094187/page/3
Just checking the Social Link pastebin, do we not have anything with the Heroes for Hire yet?
I'm just gonna leave this here...
>>40322495Why would it turn everyone into mutants? People are going to figure out the risks of eating miracle cure fruit pretty quickly so my bet is most users (at least after the initial wave) are going to be making informed decisions. Would releasing a possible true panacea, even a side effect heavy one, directly to the public spark massive social changes? Sure, but it would not be society destroying. There will still be a distribution mechanism controlled by the medical establishment and regulated by the government or private sector (the trees are sentient and can attack people they feel threatened by or don't like, remember?). There will still be a need for doctors and hospitals to deal with acute injuries. The real question is how to deal with the influx of new mutants and I suppose that's where things could go off the rails, but my bet is that the people in power (those most likely to benefit first from being able to effectively treat inoperable fatal conditions) will find a way to make that shit work. Societies cope with change or they get replaced, but either way the world spins on with us still living on it.
>>40322495where are you getting the caste system from?talking out of your ass is a great way to make me vote for the tree
You can't stop the love between a little girl and a greasy hobo. You bigots
>>40322671Society could also crush whatever changes were coming with even more fervor.
>>40322674>implying that doesn't apply to everyone who overestimates the impact of specific powers on the overall storyThis isn't one of your shitty "gain power until you reach godhood" quests
>>40322653Someone has never heard of false comparisons.You're literally talking about turning people into superhumans. A kind of superhuman where there already exist ones that can and have destroyed cities and are still around and nobody can do anything about them.Increasing the amount of mutants at all is a bad idea. Creating and distributing the means for anyone to turn into a mutant is an incredibly stupid idea.

>>40322479>unnatural 20>praise UlamogJust before the world momentarily turns blue and you spit a lance of blue-white light across the length of the street, the smaller boy standing behind the much larger, beefier version of himself tenses up, his eyes squeezing shut as if gripped by a sudden headache. He moves like quicksilver, rushing to push the girl out of the way, but he’s not quite fast enough – you blast the scrawny chick straight off her feet, and the boy gets knocked on his ass for his act of (precognitive? Supersensory?) gallantry.The older man wheels around, a snarl on his lips. “Anatoly!” That’s when Roberto barrels out into the street. He looks different – you actually have to focus to follow his movements. It’s like he’s turned into an opaque black outline of himself, flecks of solar fire churning denoting the edges of his silhouette. He moves with surprising speed and slams into one of the Russians occupying the road, hurling him straight into several of his fellows. Lucas follows hot on his heels, bathed in a churning crimson glow, and releases a blast of concussive light that knocks several men on their backs. There is only an instant of confusion before those still on their feet turn their guns on Roberto. He visibly flinches, stalling a little as gunfire patters off his skin. The gunfire lets up as a wave of crackling electricity arcs out over the street from the alley below you, jumping from man to man, leaving them smoldering and incognizant and very probably scarred for life. Laura dashes out of the alley in its wake. Just like that, you’ve cut their numbers right in half. The big guy with the tattoos barks something in Russian, motioning to Laura and Noriko. He then proceeds to charge straight at Lucas. >[ ] Throw something at big guy.>[ ] Jump down and engage big guy. >[ ] Assist Laura/Noriko. >[ ] Make sure the younger guy won’t be a problem.>[ ] Write in.
Does JT make us Magneto's waifu?
>>40322696>where are you getting the caste system from?What? Like, that's the one you have a problem with?You make everybody have variable power determined by luck. This variability between intrinsic power is huge. Some can change colour. Others are gods on earth. You think that this variability applied to the entire human population would still have the same social status applied to people? How the fuck do cops and lawyers matter to people that can control time or destroy cities with their minds?
Will doing the super hero thing increase our relationship level with Lucas? Beating up snake people sounds like some good quality bonding time.

>>40322714>Increasing the amount of mutants at all is a bad idea. Creating and distributing the means for anyone to turn into a mutant is an incredibly stupid idea.It's an incredibly risky idea, but stupid? A fruit that can effectively cure genetic disorders and cancer? Also increase the possibility of mutants with helpful powers, that can control the weather or increase the growth of plants or can allow you to survive the vacuum of space... mutant powers can be incredibly dangerous, but to ascribe to the thought that all mutant powers are shit is stupid. It's a gamble, and one people would sooner or later find out about and weigh their options on. JJ is not going to open his own fruit distribution center, force people to eat fruit or grow enough to support the entire world's population. Fuck, the minute he found out what the fruit could do he'd probably secret it away because he'd understand the implications.

>>40322707Certainly true. Isn't that what's already happening with mutants in this setting? JT'd turn up the heat from the hard liners, sure, but they're trying to kill us anyway. Meanwhile, people's children, their parents and friends and soulmates might still be alive because they're mutants now. Assuming no one goes full psycho, that kind of exposure'll probably change some minds.
>>40322718Voting out of spite is mean spirited, but so is whatever political rally this anon's trying to get going. There's a bunch of ad hominem shit and scare tactics going around that I'd understand people becoming increasingly frustrated
>>40322797>Fuck, the minute he found out what the fruit could do he'd probably secret it away because he'd understand the implications.So.. you want to spend a shitton of points to get a power that you'd then vote JJ doesn't use?
>>40322841It might change minds but I can see the fear mongering replaced with,"Sure it's no longer cancer.. it's far worse.. Mutation! They aren't even human anymore!"Crank the dial up to 11 and have full purges going on.

>>40322110It'll only destroy big pharmaceutical companies if we can produce the fruit by hundreds of thousands to millions a year and nobody except DOOM or some evil military dictatorship would be willing to give us enough land to have that many trees growing. Not to mention there would be serious distrust on that sort of medicine anyhow.
>>40322861On the one hand, I feel like they the hate mongers would slowly be marginalizing themselves if their mutant apocalypse/plague/murderous hoard failed to show up. On the other hand, I think what you're describing would make a great story and I kind of want it to happen now. Mind you, I still don't want to sink all those x-points into JT, but maybe we find some other way of making it happen.
>>40322967Maybe the guy dodges or somebody gets in the way. JJ can aim right and still miss

Calling it now. Not going after the speedster first was a mistake.
>>40322925>13>nopeDamn, he’s really fast. At least as fast as his little friend. Luckily, you’re not so sluggish yourself, and as the incensed Russian charges across the road toward Lucas you redouble your grasp upon the corner of the alley, wrenching a slab of old, mottled brickwork from the side of the wall. Drawing your arm back, you let your strange internal geomantics inform a path straight to the center of his chest, and hurl your improvised cannonball through the air. You’re a little off the mark, but not by much. The clump of masonry strikes him across his shoulder. A normal man would have been spun from their feet, but he just keeps going. The blow takes some of his inertia out of him, but he still manages to barge shoulder-first into the kinetically-charged Lucas, hurling the young man off his feet and a fair distance through the air. Ouch. Ouch ouch ouch. Readying yourself to move, you glance momentarily at the others. The remaining gunmen have turned their fire on Noriko and Laura, the latter of whom has managed to leap to cover behind an unfortunate SUV. Roberto is literally shielding Noriko with his boy, and though you don’t see any blood, each bullet clearly hurts enough to give him pause. In the corner of your eye, you notice the blonde kid picking up the glass-girl. Her poise is slack, almost like a puppet with the strings cut out from over its head, but you’re sure you can hear her babbling something to the boy. Sounds kinda incoherent from here though.>[ ] Help Lucas.>[ ] Help Roberto. >[ ] Blast the girl again. >[ ] Write in.

>>40323375Sure, that'd be pretty sweet. I don't care so much about Claws 5, but Claws 4 is raptor-legs.Optic Force Blasts 3 would also be nice, for changing direction in mid-flight. They're all great powers.
>>40323398>Gabby, no, it's ok! I'm just a dragon, not a Satan!
>>40323398It'd be a lovely contrast between social and combat forms, wouldn't it?
>>40323364That's why I want Healing Vitae.
>>40323375Well we do have solar paneling. Wings 3 will let us have them out more, thus we will pick up solar charges faster.
>>40323417Oh man, I wonder if raptor legs could be used like an eagle's talons while flying.
>>40323428its on my list too
>>40323364...we really need a medic on the team.
>>40323447Probably. Wonder if they come with the killing claw thing.
>>40323428It's not a terrible power, but after our showing against Negative man I'd rather boost up to claws 4 first before anything so we can actually use our close combat skills against anyone above mook level. Adamantine level attacks aint nothing to sneeze at, even without the bonus speed or the tail.
>>40323447We'd need to splurge on adhesive touch for non-lethal capture strikes.
>>40323487Clearly we need to get Raptor Legs, then go train with Batroc the Leaper.Though, I think JJ is already fighting above mook level already, he's just not at "can fight with Negative on equal footing" level.
>>40323496We can already do that, JJ picked up Kevin with his feet while playing tag
>>40323462We should become a medic. Our invisibility powers are really good for that. Only other thing we need is super speed, and we be perfect healer.>>40323487>getting in melee with non mooks, with stealth characterIf we could heal, we could have people tank the damage for us, and do massive sneak attack.>>40323496Or get heal, and just bludgeon half to death, and then heal back up.
>>40323496I kinda wish we had a taserlegs extrapolative now.Or tasertail/wings.
>>40323487>Adamantine level attacks Wait, wouldn't that make our bones super tough in general? Since our claws are just bones?
>>40323548they get as sharp, not as durable
>>40323548Nope. Unfortunately bones only get a passive upgrade enough to stop from snapping when used in conjunction with our strength.
>>40323567>they get as sharp, not as durableThey are durable.>http://pastebin.com/PmF43Sr1>They are roughly as durable as adamantine.Read the pastebin
>>40323336>18>close shaveNope. No thanks, little tattoo kid, you don’t care how much of a gentleman you are, she’s not getting up. Too scary. You aim a blast of concussive light over the street, slamming the girl out of his grasp and spinning him about. He doesn’t go down this time, but you have other things to worry about. Keeping the power flowing, you turn your gaze toward the sock-faced gunmen littering the street. The light scythes through them, all but flattening the first, inattentive two to be caught under your gaze and sending the others scattering back toward the building they’d previously been set on shooting to bits. Given a moment’s reprieve, Roberto drops his arms away from his eyes, momentarily confused, before he appears to realize what’s happened. Nodding up at you, he runs after the withdrawing gunmen. You turn toward Lucas and his big blonde problem, and you cannot describe your relief when he’s not dead. The Russian has him pinned up against a black BMV on your side of the road, but the absolute hail of kicks and punches Lucas is dropping all over the guy seems to preventing the much bigger man from taking advantage his situation.“You!” Hey that’s English not Russian. You turn your gaze toward the source of the voice. The blonde kid is pointing in your direction, his face contorted in rage. He doesn’t seem to be doing anything, though, so…>[ ] Deal with the kid.>[ ] Help Lucas.>[ ] Write in.
>>40323548Actually, I'm pretty sure our claws are some dense variation on keratin, not bone. So in this case I don't think it'd actually give us a skeletal upgrade.

>>40323597>[ ] Deal with the kid
>>40323597>[ ] Help Lucas.token negro needs help!
>>40323417Crusty said that we might have the option to take an existing power to level 6 for a price. These are my theories:Senses>Bullet time. Doesn't make JJ move fast just think faster. Like the world slows down.Agility>Malleable bones. Not quite MR Fantastic level. But his bones bend instead of break. Maybe he can stretch his arm an extra foot.Natural Weaponry>Wolverine Bones. JJ's entire skeleton get's the same durability as his claws.Eye beam & Taser hands>Just gives them bigger area of effect.Adhesive touch>Can stick things together for long periods of time.
>>40323604This would be the time for Crusty to clarify things, before speculation turns to sperging.
>>40323567It's the opposite actually. They are as durable but don't get the bullshit mono-molecular edge Laura and co get
>>40323548Nah, just the shit created by the ability. So our horns, claws, tail, and leg-talons/armor would all be around Adamantine-level durability. If we bought Elbow Blades/Spines, they would also be that durability (so we'd effectively be wielding two meter long prehensile whips topped with adamantine swords.)
>>40323534He would have shit all over Negative man if his claws were better actually.>>40323539>getting in melee with non mooks, with stealth characterYou mean like how we do all the time? Like how we spent tons of points getting powers to get better close combat skills because we do just that all the damn time?Plus upping our claws would allow us to actually damage high tier guys, whether we fight them or hit them from stealth. There are more people in the comics that can tank a lightning bolt to the face than can tank Adamantine.

>>40323641>Adhesive touchYou're thinking to small for a level 6 power. Go with something like an Adhesive Field. Lock down groups of people, immobilize chunks of liquids (allows for creating small rafts of congealed water as well as running across fast moving water), aero braking field to shed speed from a dive or try to cushion a falling comrade. The extended sticking thing is a little unimpressive given the power can cause undetectable aneurysms at level 4.
>>40323781Can't hide forever.
>>40323781Part of that might be because we haven't had a viable ranged power for the vast majority of this quest

>>40323926Yeah, we really should put telescopic vision on the buy list. Pair that with wings, optic blasts and our invisibility and JJ becomes a precision drone flying over an unsuspecting populace.
Dammit People. Lucas is fighting Russian Hulk that he literally can't beat even with a critical, is backed into a corner and barely surviving, and you freak over a damn kid whose only power has thus far been minor superspeed and dangersense.

>>40324001Lucas' power is literally "absorbing energy". That includes kinetic energy. The guy is trying to kill him by hitting him. You do the math.Meanwhile, for all we know this kid's power is turning anyone he says "YOU!" at inside out and then setting them on fire.
>>40324065Yeah, I'm also pretty confused here.
I'm glad CJ is out of the hospital and we can yell at each other again
>>40324065Wait, did Lucas ever learn to absorbe kinetic energy? Last I paid attention I thought it was just electricity, plasma and lasers/light?
Sage already, huh?
>>40324191Blame the guys arguing about Joshua Tree.
Yeah, whatever.You aim another blast at the kid, and are a little unnerved when he steps aside, the stream of light passing an inch over his shoulder. You swerve the beam around to clip him across the side of his head, but she shifts with it, darting to one side and shifting gears into a loping, predatory run. Something in the way he moves changes drastically – his muscles suddenly stop making sense under his skin, pulsing and flexing in ways the human frame was never meant to. It reminds you of the way a panther or a lion moves, or even some ancient bird of prey.He leaps through the air, and, in a moment of twisting, bristling formlessness, a pair of huge, leathery wings erupt from his back, a single mighty beat propelling him straight at you. Ohfu– Your danger sense screams. As he gets close, you can’t help but notice how quiet he is – how the heaving of his wings makes little to no noise, how his muscles don’t seem to grind properly against one another, how pendulously slow his heartbeat (heartbeats? Is that two goddamn hearts you hear?) is.And holy shit, he suddenly smells like death.He swipes a viciously clawed hand at you, the skin on his arms turning pale and mottled. You throw yourself aside, a good portion of the stonework around tearing loose as his talons rake through the old masonry, and –>[ ] Wings out, get distance, blast blast. >[ ] Take the fall, let him come to you. >[ ] Try to adhere to the wall as you go down. >[ ] Write in.

>>40324366>15>not quiteThe kid-turned-monster lets out an enraged shriek, the noise reverberating along your spine in a manner that almost makes you feel sick.Gravity pulls you down, and you reach out frantically for purchase, managing to slap your palm across the side of the alley. There is a moment of uncertain, slippery strangeness, sparks crawling under your palm as your adhesive effect struggles against your momentum, before you grind to a halt. Haha, ye– Your danger sense spikes, diving a bolt of fire straight down through your skull, but you don’t move quite fast enough. Your wrist snaps like old cutlery as the kid, now mostly the colour of old, waterlogged corpseflesh and sporting a pair of eyes akin to blotches of ink, kicks you loose. You drop. Twisting in mid-fall, you manage to land on your feet – thankfully not from a great distance. The impact still rattles you knees, however, and you’re relatively sure that the soles of your feet are 90% bruise now.Wings flapping noiselessly, your attack circles in, something foul and noxious and black as pitch trailing from his jaws. >[ ] Get out of the way and get invisible.>[ ] Jump up and punch this motherfucker.

>>40324777Well, at least you're honest.
>>40324768Not that anon, but I'm assuming he'd probably vote to use the swanky new t3 power. A dude who has one of our t3 options and nothing else could curbstomp JJ 1v1.
>>40324752INVISIBILITY (LVL5): Phasic invisibility. This ability obscures JJ Green in both the visual and thermal range, but he will still register to auditory or more exotic means of detection. As light now passes through JJ Green, he has no shadow, and the visible distortions caused by motion while under the effect of this mutation have lessened to a barely-perceptible level. JJ may now take mass equivalent to a bus into the field, and may maintain this effect on objects after they have left contact with him for a few crucial seconds.We got anti thermal.

>>40324932I'm okay with back wings but I'd rather get natural weapons first.
Maybe we should bank, so we can get higher tier tier 3 ability straight away?Also why you guys want to fight in melee so much? I don't get it. We got a lot of other, better options.
>>40324996Natural weapons is more immediately useful so we can take on any tough guys. Anyone with high durability we can basically do nothing to them at the moment.
>>40325042Rob Liefled wants razor reptile
>>40325045Were as wings 3 allow our arms to be free, greatly increasing our mobility in a fight since we can have wings out for no penalty,

>>40325045teamwork is the best powerFriendship is an unsinkable battleship
>>40325042We've already got all those points spend on close combat skills and agility, but we can't actually do anything in melee to people like Negative man is the issue.If you wanted to argue against spending points on melee you should have done it ages ago.
>>40325045Call Laura....Profit.>>40325052Why are we getting crappy duplicate power sets again? We get to be like Laura, only crappyer.I would like Healing vitae, for keeping allies alive. But that is long dream.

>>40325066Except when we end up alone, like we have all the fucking time even when we bring people with us.
I told you people wings were the most practical choice. You didn't listen.
>>40324885Crusty, how would Joshua Tree and T3 interact?
>>40325042Because we have a lot of melee skills and super strength and agility to use them?Our ranged options are equally good, but considering we're equally a crack bitch in melee and at range, it's not unusual to use both is it?
>>40325103We're alone right now for instance. If this guy was a durable close range fighter we'd be fucked.
>>40325124Ask on his Ask.fm
wings become solar panels a 3we boost up sub dermal enough and they can be shieldsand Laura thinks they are sexy
>>40325133But...he is a durable close range fighter. And we are fucked, hence the running away and turning invisible.
>>40325111Except we're in this situation because of multiple shit rolls. Wings wouldn't have helped.
>>40325111They would not have helped, he still had super speed.>>40325124O.. that's an idea.>>40325126Being at range prevents a ton of damage we take, when crack bitching. Rolling 1 while shooting from roof while invisible gets you spotted. Rolling 1 while fighting Mr. Poison hands gets you half dead.
>>40325137Don't have an account and I have to go run errands for a few hours, or I would.
>>40325172Don't need an account to ask questions.
>>40325172Needing an account is such bullshit
>>40325111Personally, I think it'd be cool if we could up Wings and also get the melee upgrades. Then we could basically be The Vulture, but...not terrible.
>>40325151No he's not. We've knocked him down a couple of times just with glances of our relatively weak optic blast. The problem is we missed just now because of shit rolls.
>>40325147that sold me wings it is!

>>40325179Yeah you do, they changed it to prevent cyberbullying
>>40324896>17>noiceYour legs ache, but you push them to move anyway. You dart aside as the kid unleashes a stream of billowing, foul-smelling smoke. Just being near it almost makes you gag, your lungs suddenly convinced that the air around you is a tarry mess of bile and spoiled meat. As the smog spirals away in the wind, you note that the garbage strewn across the mouth of the alley is a lot thinner in its wake – the stuff may smell nasty, but it sure as hell cleans up everything else.Not enthused about giving this guy a target for another burst of whatever it was, you flick the fade switch in your head, shifting out of visibility and sidling back, moving lightly from place to place. Scowling with those inky eyes of his, the kid lands, head darting this way and that. He sniffs testily at the air, but, thankfully, doesn’t seem to catch your scent yet.

Just as a reminder to everyone, we can probably use our optic blasts to launch ourselves into the air, or to redirect things we throw.Something to keep in mind for the future.Also, thank god the girl with the glasses was Russian Shatterbird. For a minute there I thought we were about to run into a Marvel version of Skitter.

>>40325374>unnatural 20>emrakul a shit>(1/2)You feel the pressure build behind your eyes, focusing it, letting it build like storm against the back of your skull. Finally, when it becomes almost unbearable, you let it loose, and the alley lights up as a wave of blue-white force explodes from your eyes. It washes over the kid like a ton of bricks. He staggers backward, skin rippling across his flesh, wings twisting awkwardly as they’re buffeted about under the kinetic storm. Stepping forward, you concentrate on bringing it inward, imaging a lake draining away into a river, into an estuary, into a stream, and your power seems to mostly get it. The beam focuses itself, tightening into a lance of light. Without a proper foothold, the kid doesn’t do any fancy dodging. It strikes him square in the jaw and sends him hurtling back off his feet. He crashes down in the mouth of the alley, twitching slightly but otherwise unresponsive. You edge closer, listening in on his ridiculously sluggish pulse. You can’t tell if he’s out for real – you’re not sure he’s even breathing, actually – but he’s not making a move to get up.
>>40325800Seconded on both counts.
>>40325735Alas, that goes the way of the cat/toast power generation device. Sound in theory, but ultimately just makes a mess of the testing area.
>>40325735Actually, you'd want something larger, more durable, and quite sturdily attached to JJ, but this could actually work.
>>40325730She's both more and less terrifying than Skitter.More, because she can beat things so far out of her weight class she needs a radio telescope to see them, WITHOUT suffering insane amounts of physical, mental and/or emotional trauma to herself, people she cares about or the planet she's standing on.Less, because she's a much more well-adjusted person who is much easier to interact with, and her powers don't give her both unlimited multitasking and localized near-omniscience as a side effect.
>(2/2)Clutching your arm, you take stock of the situation in the street beyond. Roberto, Noriko and Laura appear to have dealt with the gunmen, and are staring down big blondie. He’s grown by about five or six inches since you last saw him, his skin taking on the same mottled, corpselike tone as the kid lying in the alley. His ears are subtly pointed and he’s toting a very large, very intimidating set of fangs in his mouth. His growth spurt has twisted the tattoos that play across his frame into gnarled, erratic shapes. Your heart sinks in your chest when you notice an unconscious Lucas trailing at the man’s side, gripped by the neck of his shirt. He’s breathing, but there’s blood running freely from a burst lip, and his left eye is a matted knot of bruised tissue.The Russian glances down at the kid sprawled at your feet, his jaw set into a likely permanent grimace. He shakes Lucas’ prone form. “One for other.” He says, his accent layered thick atop the words. >[ ] Sure dude.>[ ] There’s more of us than you man.>[ ] …What about all the others?>[ ] Write in.

>>40326044I kinda doubt he'll give a shit
>>40326154Warn him not to give the mutant guy over to his boss, so he doesn't get thrown into grinder. He somewhat cares about him, and that would drive wedge between him and his boss.
>>40326146Ink is a not-mutant who gets powers from his tattoos because his tattoo artist uses HIS mutie-magic to give him magic tattoos that can do just about bloody anything, as long as its appropriate to the tattoo. Up to and including jacking the phoenix force. It's really bullshit.
>>40326203Alright that makes more sense. I'll support this.
>[X] Sure dude.You think about that. You could fight a bigger, blonder, Russian-er version of the guy that just broke your wrist, or you could… not do that. “Sure, dude.” Stepping away from the kid’s prone form, you sidle back to form up beside Noriko and Laura. Just in case. The Russian snorts – in, what, in acceptance or something? – and lets go of Lucas, dropping him down on the tarmac before making his way to his younger version and hefting the boy up. Glancing across the remains of the scene, his eyes seem to linger on the glass-girl for a moment, and he begins plodding silently toward her. “You know…” As you start talking, you take an experimental whiff at the air. Like his friend, he smells of nothing but the worst leftovers imaginable – dead flesh and grave dirt and disease left unchecked. Christ. “…The stuff you guys are trying to get your hands on, the Jack, it’s made of”– “Don’t care.” He interrupts, stooping down to lift up glass-girl, the air of a man long-suffering another’s idiocy about him. “Not mutant.” His back splits open, flesh writhing and tearing, and a set of vast wings spread across the street. “Good trade.” He says, and leaps up into the air. The moment he’s gone, Noriko rushes to check Lucas. >[ ] Stay there for a bit, make sure Lucas isn’t seriously hurt.>[ ] You can check him on your way home.>[ ] Write in.

>>40326313Told yall these commies were demons. I knows me a demon when I see one.
>>40326491they were slavs, it should have been obvious
>>40326513Slavic Vampires, so Vryloxa...Vryloca? Bah, I'm not looking up the word.
>>40326313>[X] Stay there for a bit, make sure Lucas isn’t seriously hurt.Still not voting for Vitae.
>>40326539Wait, Slavic vampires?Sounds like what we really need here is a witcher.
>>40326553I feel ya, anything that gets us close to JT is a shitty investment.
>>40326578Perhaps a Scarlet Witcher?
>>40326624Nah. She wished away the mutants, remember?
>>40326604So if JT was off the table, flat out didn't exist, you'd be ok with HV or you just don't like the idea of being the party healer?
>>40326604photosynthetic bio is not shitdo not let your anal pain blind you
>>40326672>>40326677and here comes the druidfags. Pure combat is superior in everyway, and since JT isn't off the table any step that leads to Druid is just one step further to shitting up this quest
>>40326662Has that happened already? I was hoping to see people react to flatscan!JJ.Ah, well.
>>40326672Personally I'm not voting for vitae because while I don't think it's a shit power I do think NW is way more useful.
>>40326672Personally? sure.With photosynthesis now at level 4 its actually worth looking at. But i wont be voting for it until we up our core powers a bit and grab some more extraps.
I wonder if tier 3 takes away claws
>>40326749this, our focus should be making JJ better, not being support. Fuck that.
>>40326739Laura has better NW than us, and she still does jack squat.I personally think that NW is worst power we can take. Both eye beams, and taser hands are better attack powers.Healing Vitae migrates crack bitch. Just saying.
>>40326775Can't be, it's something we've had basically forever and has been used a ton.So something like healing, invisibility, sense etc.
>[X] Stay there for a bit, make sure Lucas isn’t seriously hurt.>[X] Phone the Phantom for possible assistance.Jogging after Noriko, you check up on Lucas. The boy’s taken a beating. He’s bruised pretty badly, but he’s breathing, and a cursory patting down of his chest and arms tell you that nothing’s broken anywhere that’d give him real trouble. Must’ve been hit pretty damn hard to be knocked flat-out cold, though. Holding him in her arms, Noriko stares nervously down at the kid, her eyes lingering on the massive bruise that dominated the upper portion of his face. “He’s okay, right? I dunno his this stuff”– She flails internally for the right words, before settling on: “I’m not a nurse.”“I’m not sure…” Laura leans in over you, and you shuffle somewhat aside as she strokes on hand over his head – feeling for indents of cracks, you guess. Apparently finding nothing, she forces open his mouth, glancing inside, before lifting his eyelids and watching the way his sightless gaze flickers and shifts. “He is not bleeding internally.” She says, eventually. “He may have sustained a mild concussion. He will need rest. His life is most likely not in danger. A tomographic scan would be more accurate than my evaluation, however.” Right… Sirens wail in the distance, closing rapidly.You fish out your phone, dialing the Phantom…----------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ 118: END>Congratulations! You've gained an X-Point!>Congratulations! What did you even fight there!?>Congratulations! Lucas ain't dead.Gonna have to cut the runtime a bit short, just became aware of some work I have to do. Sorry 'bout that.
>>40326825JJ has had claws since thread 6basically forever
>>40326775I hope not. It'd seem a waste, given how much it's been changed recently with additions like the tail and such. Besides, it fits thematically with JJ's riastrad. Unless Tier 3 would remove that as well.>>40326825We've had claws since near the start of this quest and we use them all the damn time.
>>40326844Thanks for running!Vote for wings 3 please.
>>40326812>Laura does jack squat...
>>40326812Laura is a completely ordinary human with just skills and claws and no actually she does great basically every time.Taser at max is a touch range lightning blot. There are more people that can tank a lightning bolt than adamantine. That's without the extra's like shootable claws, the speed increase and tail.
>>40326844thanks for running HEALING VITAEwe need some kind of medic
>>40326844Natural Weaponry 3.Thanks for running, Crustmeister.
>>40326844Fuck the spergers, healing vitae. We need some support abilities
>>40326844So I think the options are claws, optic blasts, wings, healing vitae, bank and, as always, AA - I mean phasing.
>>40326844Thanks for running, Crusty. Was fun.Gimme wiiiiiiiiings.
>>40326844Thanks Crusty, NW3 pls
>>40326844NatWeap 3And, when you have time, please answer the ask.
>>40326845I think it wasn't that early, they showed up after meeting spider-man
>>40326844natural weaponry, fuck healing vitae
I'll vote for anything but Vitae. Screw bleeding all over people, that shit's nasty.
>>40326916If you vote for wings you're just giving a vote to vitae.
>>40326844vitae, fuck natural weaponry
>>40326951Feck off scare mongerer.
>>40326946>>40326951Agreed, shit's nasty, and another vote for vitae is another vote for druid
>>40326844It's time for some healing
>>40326951I think you'll find by voting wings I'm giving a vote to wings.
>>40326970>Fuck the thing that would have beaten Negative manOkay.
>>40327008teamwork would have beat Mr. Negative at the cost of zero xpoints
>>40326874It's mostly her training and healing that make her scary though
>>40327008Not fighting him alone would've have probably helped too, just sayin'
>>40327028>>40327051Or it would have gotten our allies turned into his allies.
>>40327034Training, healing and the fact she has one of the strongest and sharpest metals known to man at her disposal.
>>40327028Teamwork is not always an option. We got separated despite teamwork this very thread.Any guy we end up against with decent durability right now will wreck us because we just won't be able to damage him.
Really want optics 3 so that coupled with wings we can get KINETIC MULTIPLICATION MEMBRANE and out fly most folk.
Okay, numbered voting time. Remember the rules? Here are the rules: the rules are nothing but the number. No greentext or quotes or any of that shit. If you post anything but the number you'll catch my terrible disease and it will be awful, you'll have to drink shitty liquid supplements forever. Post, >1 for WINGED FLIGHT>2 for NATURAL WEAPONRY>3 for HEALING VITAE>4 to BANK THAT SHIZZ
>>40327074we sent away our team in the negative fight.and if we're getting our ass kicked, then we'll do what did in this thread and fall back and hide.
>>40327155You fucking retard
35 legitimate votes. looks like a vitae win.

>>40327301waitI missed one for wingsso 10-10-13-1 for Vitae
Great job wingfags
>>40327114Is it too late to vote for phasing? Because I vote for phasing
While I voted for Claws because we would use them a lot more than Healing, shit is still useful.Claws just make more sense with JJ's mind and actions.
>>40327326You do realize wings and claws got the same?
>>40327311you could always get therapy to help overcome your hemophobia
HEALING VITAE WINS.Hah. JJ got blood powers from fighting slavpires.
And so, the sad division of Wingsfags and Clawsfags secured a precious victory for the Druidfags, putting JJ one step closer to Joshua Tree end.
>>40327374Aw yeah, we reverse vampire jesus now.
>>40327374Phasing will win one day Crusty
>>40327374JJ CONFIRMED FOR BLOOD BAG
>JJ craves the sun>gives people his blood>proper courtship of waifu instead of daterape gazeJJ is a reverse vampire
Meh. It was going to be gotten eventually since no other healing power. Just hope it does not bite us in the ass when someone fights us and bites.>>40327326Good job clawfagsSee how much faggotry it sounds like? That's you.
>>40327389It probably didn't help that people got so assblasted about druids
>>40327301It's about damn time>>40327338Its never too late phasebro
>>40327389...you realize that some of us who voted for HV have no interest in Druid, right?
>>40327483And some of us do. No hating man, just take of our blood
>>40327427Yep. The only thing worse than Druidfags are vocal Anti-Druidfags, for in whining about Treebeard JJ they arouse the ire of the infamous "Spite Voters", who will gladly vote for something they didn't even want in order to anger the whiners.
>>40327525The Spite Voters are worse.
>>40327483>...you realize that some of us who voted for HV have no interest in Druid, right?Of course. But now the gates have been opened to make JJ into a tree whisperer, and we'll never hear the end of it.
>>40327525>>40327539Fuck druids and fuck any of you who voted out of spite. I hope you choke on a salad
>>40327552So, you're upset that we'll now be splitting the phasing vote with Druidism?
>>40327568>>40327568Assuming you're the one who whined about it earlier in the thread, you brought this on yourself.
>>40327389the greatest shift comes not from powersperging or spite but from the story itselfLucas getting his asswhooped made getting healing powers sound like a fine investment.
>>40327552or folks will never gather enough support for the next step into druidry.Who knows. Though people getting very angry are amusing in some ways.
>>40327568I was fine with any of the current choices being acquired.I like Wings, NatWeap, Vitae and Bank.Though I'd rather we buy Druid stuff for a long while later. That sounds like endgame shit.
>>40327552It was already open when he got animal affinity. We could've been a tree whisperer without healing vit, but now we have a chance to rapidly grow things too as well as control them
Well shit. Next time, I'm putting it all on Wings.
>>40327568>>40327552yes keep talking about druidkeep making anons think about druidsear into their minds with your words
I'm gonna laugh if we get our shit kicked in really soon by guys we easily could have taken because we can't damage them.Like a billion points spend getting better at fighting and it's all useless.
>>40327600I don't understand how you could not be. Getting closer to druid just invites faggots to push for it, and end game druid will fucking ruin us. We are no position to wield the power of making muties. You guys are fucking idiots
>>40327640You can actually put it on both.
>>40327682>We are no position to wield the power of making muties.Well, we might be Tier 3 by then.
>>40327648You're right. This quest need more hallucinogens.
>>40327651We could just train to get better at fighting. It's not increased durability and weapons, but we've got the foundation to be the next Iron Fist (or better)
>>40327651And I'm going to be really smug once one of our friends doesn't die to bullet to the chest. I guess that's the nature of these hypothetical pissing contests.
>>40327715It doesn't matter how good we get at fighting because we literally can't damage anyone of decent durability. That's my point. We got all these extra's all for learning from Laura and fighting better and they're useless.
Can we set up a truce for next thread, since we probably won't be buying anything? No power sperging, please?
>>40327682Because if we ever get it, we are never going to use it except in the most massively rare instance. We won't even know we have it.It'll be like DB all over again. Get power, never use it, atrophy.Voting druid is kind of pointless.
>>40327682Tier 3 will make longer claws pointlessmelee would be better served by training with Lauramobility, support, and defensive powers would benefits us more.
>>40327734If we couldn't heal them they just wouldn't have taken a bullet to the chest in the first place.That's how this story works.
>>40327682Would you like some fries with that salt? I grew them myself
>>40327773>melee would be better served by training with LauraTraining with Laura is useless because our claws are shit tier and we can't damage anyone. How are you not getting this?
>>40327776>That's how this story works.Oh boy, I'm sure Crusty is laughing at that one.
>>40327771I wish I had your faith anon, but this quest is clogged with chucklefucks. Aunt May's gonna have a stroke, and JJ's gonna bake her an apple pie and it'll all go down hill from there
>>40327808We never took a bad hit before we got healing. Then we took progressively worse hits as we got better healing. Even though we encountered really dangerous people like Kimura really early on.
>>40327767It is too late, anon. It was always too late.The sperg is blessed by Cyttorak. It cannot be stopped.
>>40327808Except he's right. If HV wasn't available as a power, having a close companion die of getting shot would be bullshit
>>40327808Read the threads again. That actually is how this story works.
>>40327802melee is more than cutting bitches.positioning, footing, balance, dodging, throwing, tasering even.
>>40327863>having a close companion die of getting shot would be bullshitLife is bullshit. That's something JJ knows pretty well.
>>40327845When we got healing we turned more brave. Literally turned from running all the time to at least attempting.
>>40327902All meant nothing against Negative man. Who we were hitting fucktons of times but couldn't do anything to, whereas adamantine claws would have wrecked him.
>>40327682I think you're misreading the audience.
>>40327849The Dreaded Juggersperg.My God.
>>40327915Nope. we were tackling Kimura right form the start. Even with rolls of 1 though we weren't taking the damage we were from minor shit later. Because that's how this story works.
>>40326957Ah, thank you. The Vy-etc name is actually a Russian harvest dragon god slain by Perun who gave rise to part of te root myth that eventually lead to vampires.Thanks for clearing that up!
>>40327933because we fought him alone like a retard.use teamwork next time because teamwork works
>>40327936How so? It seems pretty clear to me
>>40327991We got separated this fucking thread. How are you not getting this? You don't choose when you have to melee.
>>40327964No? Kim didn't think anything of us when we first met her. We poked her in the eye to run the fuck away.Had we rolled poorly we would have met the good doc mc creep allot earlier and perhaps missed Laura all together.
>>40328026We engaged her in melee, we did roll poorly, we lost. Then that happened. Kimura can rip arms off easily. She didn't because that's how this story works.
>>40328080>She didn't because that's how this story works.How do you think this story works?
>>40327993The feeling I get is that people are more interested in building out our combat and mobility abilities next (claws, eye beams and wings) next, not focusing on some long term support power sets (druiding or Dr. Dolittle-ing). Besides, I'm betting we have less than 10 x-points left to spend before we get hit with tier 3 or a new mess of extrapolatives.
>>40328110We don't take hits we can't heal from. In fact we don't take hits we can't heal from relatively easily.
>>40328112Even when we hit teir 3 we should have access to some extraps and powers still.
>>40328022we did when we fought Mr. Negative. stop trying to switch the subject.and claws wouldn't have helped this thread's fight. fucker could fly and was quick as shit. Invisibility and OFB saved the day.play to JJ's strengths instead of forcing something meh to meh+
>>40328112More people are sure, but they're split between those things so druid wins just like this thread.
>>40328112If that were the case, we wouldn't have gotten AA or Healing Vitae in the first place. You need to aggressively rally against this shit or it's going to take root regardless how some people feel
>>40328080>Kimura can rip arms off easily.She can't, actually. She can break bones and stuff easily due to being diamond hard, but she doesn't have enhanced strength.She's never ripped anyone apart in canon, and usually totes weapons around because she's not insanely deadly on her own, just insanely durable. She needed a chainsaw to sever Laura's arm from her body.
>>40328166>You need to aggressively rally against this shitIt's this mentality that's getting people to support druid
>>40328141Melee is one of his strengths. He's statistically more likely to succeed in melee combat than any of the things you mentioned. Stop trying to defeat the entire purpose of all the points and actions spent on training his combat abilities.
>>40328127Not really? I mean, with our healing factor I agree that anything non-fatal we can eventually bounce back from, but JJ is definitely allowed to get in over his head and end up dead if we put him in that position.
DRINK MY BLOOD IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER.how would we even learn that our blood does this? we just going to slice open our arm one day and shove it down someones throat?
>>40328181She literally ripped Laura's arm off in canon. Easily.
Really we need wings, force blast and sub dermal all to level 3 and get the associated extraps. >>40328166You have no idea. Sonic fags tried that vs DB and got cock blocked yet again because folks were fed up of them ramming their shit down everyones throats.Argue against druid sure. Just don't be an obnoxious twat about it.
>>40328193Spite voting is worst voting, and I say this as someone who voted for Vitae. Vote for what you want, not to piss off some random idiot on the internet.
>>40328195I'd take tasers before claws tbqh>>40328228she cut it off, read the comic (Kyle and Yost's X-force IIRC)
>>40328208I think we're going to fight the Lizard and he'll start regenerating faster when he starts biting us.
>>40328208It's really not even that good of a healing potion, doesn't regenerate limbs or anything cool, and force feeding people blood is kind of weird.
>>40328208I guess maybe we accidentally bleed all over Lucas from our wrist injury?
>>40328228No, she has never done that.She once cut off Laura's arm with a chainsaw.
>>40328271>and force feeding people blood is kind of weird.We're not cutting our arm and stuffing it down their mouths.>>40328287JJ will accidentally cut himself while cooking and that'll be it.
>>40328262Why is there no love for tasers? It's been one of our most consistently useful abilities, and it gets crazy at higher levels.
>>40328309Probably because its quite useful as is but the later abilities are not much to look at.It and adhesive are two very very useful yet overlooked powers.
>>40328257If I had a dollar for every time somebody said they'll vote for anything that isn't druid/aa/hvI'd have at least ten bucks probably all from the same 2 anons
Is our blood at least fruity?
>>40328287it's not that fast of healing, and why would we assume that it was our blood that healed him? I would say it would be far more likely that we would assume that Lucas manifested minor regeneration then us assuming we now have magical mutie blood.
>>40328346Probably tastes like lilies.
>>40328309knives have that new power smell thanks to CJ fiddling with it>>40328346at this point? V8
>>40328340>but the later abilities are not much to look at>Level 4: Will melt steel when concentrated. JJ might as well be touching someone with a thunderbolt.
>>40328307>JJ will accidentally cut himself while cooking and that'll be it.we don't know how much blood is needed to heal anything, and JJ is sanitary enough that if we cut his hand and spilt a significant amount of blood into the gangs soup I bet he would just start over making dinner.
>>40328307probably blood from our fucked up arm gets to Lucas and then his eye stops being fucked up
>>40328435Eh. Given how JJ has been played this entire quest, prioritizing support over everything else just seems weird.
>>40328420and later levels of adhesive would let him rip someones face off.While cool, would rather up optics and others.
>>40328435...isn't storm a mix of ranged sniping and aoe?
>>40328307>JJ will accidentally cut himself while cooking and that'll be it.agility 5 and senses 5 bro, more likely to get struck by lightning.
>>40328463support is an umbrella term that puts in pretty much every power that doesn't makes JJ hit better, shoot better, move better, or get hit better.and its just my opinion man
>>40328477Yeah, I'd rather max out Optics if I had to choose anything. As a Tier 2 offensive ability, it is by its nature potentially more powerful than anything else we've got until Tier 3 comes a-knockin'.Plus, it'd make the people who keep asking why JJ is so melee-focused happy (it's sure as shit better than throwing bricks at people).
>>40328479I just picked an X-men imagewant the rest of 'em?
The only viable way I see HV coming in to play is to have JJ get bleeding from the mouth, or have his lung shot or something and then he tries to give comeone else CPR.
>>40328532>>40328535just let CJ handle how it will debut
>>40328532True, jean is op support. I always forget that.
We should get next tier of optical next.It's a great opening power, and takes care of flying, and ranged attackers pretty good, without putting us in too much harms way.That, and zoom-O vision. Would make our optical blasts better, and make us portable crime lab. We be CSI JJ.
>>40328607Plus, we can start pulling off trick shots by bending the beam in mid-flight.
>>40328607>Zoom and Enhance Man
>>40328208>yo guys, Lucas needs a transfusion
Do you think bloodphobia anon has occasional panic attacks when remembers that there is blood inside his body?
>>40328772>Having a fetish for bleeding all over people.Seek help.
>>40328744Good idea.>>40328710Man can we get this ability? Zoom and Enhance any multimedia thing. Would be hella funny.
>>40328795Stop wanting Lucas to die.is it because he's black?
>>40328744because giving someone a blood transfusion without knowing what blood type they are is a smart thing to do
>>40328844I'm just pointing out that we have no reason to believe in character that making Lucas somehow ingest our blood will make him better.
>>40328856We are adaptability mutant.Wort thing that can happen is new mutant powers.Besides that is cool origin story for a power, or something.
>>40328844He's not even in any life-threatening danger, you just want him to drink JJ's blood, you sicko.
>>40328918>getting off to black kids getting concussions from slav vampiresmust be hell finding porn of it>>40328895thank goodness you're not writing then. your imagination is worse than my brother's and he can only write essays.
>>40328844stop wanting to force injured children to drink our blood you fucking fetishist.
>>40328956you kids and your slav vampire guro
Were two of you so butthurt you voted it down on suptg?
>>40328801>No Laura its not white and gold!
Let's be real here, if some homeless hobo mutie walked up to you and said "drink my blood it will make you feel better" is anyone really going to do it willingly?
>>40329071is it a lizard elf?
>>40329071Yeah it would probably call for a relation check on anyone not trusted level.
>>40329071Its still ok for emergencies, or if we go into fight.Plus anyone needing it is probably desperate as fuck.
>>40329101Hard to tell with the hood, shades, and slytherin scarf he is wearing.
>>40329180can I roll perception?
>>40328856JJ's a universal donor.
>>40329188go ahead d20 it's a dc 13
>>40328257Agreed, any dumbass who votes for druid out of spite is a passive aggressive twat that deserves to be lumped in with phasefags, sonicfags and druidfags as they determinedly try to ruin this quest
>>40329180>slytherin scarf he is wearingTotally forgot about that shit. The last two threads are now truly hilarious.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>40329216What's my modifier?
>>40329195Warning, side effects might include, but are not limited to forked tongue, growing scales, and inability to contain pasta.>>40329225Druid is not that bad. Only problem are paladinfags, not wanting to side with brotherhood. Still there are a lot of more useful abilities we should get before that.
