Your name is Thomas Cairn, and you have no clue what you jumped into. Your dad was a famous superhero known as The Red Rider, and he showed up dead in an alley about a year ago.When you were checking out a storage unit you inherited from him, everything changed. You gained his powers, a brain able to calculate faster than light, and an uncanny affinity for machinery.Using your powers, you were easily able to get into the world's top engineering college, Central Cosmopolis Institute. You never moved past Dad's ideas though, and you couldn't stand the gap The Red Rider made, so you filled it. You made a suit of power-armor and became The Red Knight, however, you lacked experience. So you managed to get a mentor, Wrench, so that you could learn the Hero business. Of course the only way to learn is experience, so you spent a good portion of your free time breaking up Mafia operations around Cosmopolis.The people have taken a shine to you. They were scared about The Red Rider's "hiatus", but now that you're here they think that, like other normal Supers, he passed on the torch. The crowds love you, every time you fly by at least 20 phones come out, but no good comes without a price, and not everybody can be saved.Archived Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Superhuman%20LegacyTech Trees: http://pastebin.com/9uxS0teLPlot Points: http://pastebin.com/q8wm3Lr3MC Sheet: http://pastebin.com/aNFFXTCUArmor Loadout: http://pastebin.com/Jta4cNfXResearched Tech: http://pastebin.com/CN3UaTbN>There have been various updates to the system I use for these quests, the most important of which is the fact that unlocking new paths for tech to take requires breakdowns to occur.

Harry left. He couldn't take what happened, so his parents took him home for the summer. They probably already have an appointment with some overrated shrink lined up. Harry didn't want to go, but even you had to admit that something was wrong, and coming from you that's saying something. He wouldn't get out of bed when it was morning, which isn't odd, but he just... wouldn't get over it. He wouldn't even talk to Monica.Monica is still here, but she isn't taking it well. It was to be expected when someone is shot right next to you. Jeana and her friends have been working on keeping her together, and that seems to work, but she seems to have developed Haemophobia. Big fancy word for saying that she is petrified at the sight of blood, which doesn't seem so bad until it comes into practice. She can't even stand the sight of rare steak, so why even bother living... no, bad brain, that's terrible.You, on the other hand, are taking this well. Why are you taking this so well? You shouldn't, this should haunt your dreams, but you don't feel any disturbance at all. You cried when you got done burning the body, but you always cry at funerals, and you haven't felt sad about it since. At least you have it over with. It's over... why does that work?

The business needs some help, a shot in the arm or something, and what better way than with some help from the father himself. That was weird, but RON needs to get more money and such so that you can build more to make more and..."RON, focus on the stocks, we need the money.""Sir, the companies you have shares in have taken a massive climb recently. I sold the shares to get the money into new companies before the old shares collapse. The net worth of your stocks has increased drastically.""How drastically are we talking RON?""You currently have 1.5 Million invested, with another 100,000 in transfer.""RON, do you feel joy? 'cause I sure as hell do.""I don't feel joy, but the closest approximation I feel is satisfaction at a job well done."You, after that wonderful news, decide to do some hob-nobbing and get some connections in place for new products. You have always been good at gaining support, so success was expected. The first events you look for are conferences and Tech shows to get your name out there. Cosmopolis being a shining example of a modern city, these are in no short supply.

Jeana's been in the back of your mind for a while, your last attempt at a dinner date involved zombies. She deserves a more enjoyable time than that, so you make a reservation at Calabrino's for two. It's the most expensive place in town and you aren't really a fan of the food, but Jeana said she liked it so that's good enough for you."Hey Jeana, I have reservations for two at Calabrino's. Now if only I had a person to go with.""What's the occasion?""I'll tell you when we get there. I'm paying this time so I wouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth."

>The date costs $40,000You manage to get everything together and the limo arrives as soon as you pull up to your dorm in your junker."I have a ride for Thomas Cairn?" A guy in the stereotypical chauffeur outfit looks at you."That would be me." You pass a him your ID and credit card, he swipes the card and the little machine makes a beep.You have him drive up to the girl's dorm and Jeana gives you a look of utter bewilderment. She is dressed in a seafoam green dress that goes really well with her hair, it really accentuates how completely confused she is."Hop on in, I promise it isn't stolen." She gets in and you talk for awhile about how things are going and summer classes and all that jazz as you ride to dinner. She seems really impressed by all of this showmanship and is eagerly awaiting the news about what the occasion is.You reach Calabrino's at 7 and the chauffeur says he'll be back at 9, then he drives off. The host checks your reservations and sees that they're in order, then a waiter takes you to the table. The restaurant is styled after Greek architecture, which makes it ironic how expensive it is.

That sounds like you're pulling my leg."You pull out your phone and touch the app that contacts RON. "RON, say hello to Jeana and tell her who you are.""I am RON, I was made as a personal assistant to Tom, right now I am working the stock market to maximize profits.""Well... how?"

An idea for next time, but if we hold a 2nd expo, we should reveal hover cars (I don't think society is ready for flying cars to be the normal travel, so sticking to hovering for now.)I could see us doing that if we work on our fluing tech some more.

After pulling some strings with some friends in the Auto industry, you manage to get funding and support for an expo to reveal a "New Breed of Automobile". You kept it vague that way it would attract more attention, and you weren't disappointed. Only a few days after the news dropped people were starting to speculate on where you came from and what this car was. What can a college student from Comet City make that impressed enough to warrant an expo?Jeana has taken to your business well enough, she still acts exactly the same way, and she doesn't ask for money or stuff. But even she want's to know what the car is. You keep silent up until the day before the ceremony, when you release a single phrase."The Tempest: Taking the world by storm."The media goes wild over what it could mean, leading up to the opening speech of the expo. The opening address comes from a rotund man in a white suit and a ridiculous cowboy hat. It really is one of the most boring things you've ever heard, but it sets the stage for you quite well. You walk out to the podium and give an impassioned speech about how you picked yourself up by your bootstraps after your dad's untimely death and made his legacy something to be proud of. You end with how you hope to do him justice with your actions. Everyone at the ceremony is touched that you would share that with them.The expo is now open!>Wait a day to reveal The Tempest>Reveal The Tempest at a midnight showcase with a party preceding (Costs money)>Spend the day showing off the Nanomachines and Potential Generators>Bring in some bands and such from the college to play>Full concert from popular bands (Money)>Write-in

>Expo cost: $135,000A lot of bands aren't in town, but there are a few. They just wanted tons of cash, but you payed them, gotta look good. You also got some bands from CCI to play for free as the opening act, but they were kind of underwhelming. Luckily, your other inventions bring just enough buzz to keep up the hype. Sales should skyrocket after this.You find a bit of a niche in Q&A panels among other people in the expo as a guy who doesn't give fake answers. It's a busy day, and a few new cars were announced, most were electric cars for efficiency. Those won't sell nearly as well as a literally fuel-less car. Everyone seems to have fun since you booked some pretty high-end bands that are popular right now.Finally, the showcase has come, and the party that's going on right now is kicking. Everybody is either drinking, dancing, talking, or swapping ideas on what The Tempest is. You walk around the crowd, talking to everybody in turn, they all seem very excited, and you swear you see a few actors and big names around.

You put on the suit and tie, you then decide to grab some sunglasses. You put them on and your mind reels, screaming at some unknown force, then, just as quick as it started, it stops. You feel a chill down your spine and a sense of dread. Maybe you're paranoid. Yeah that must be it.>The upheaval has begun, the end in motion, the hare is safe, but the fox can see.You walk out, strangely calm after all that weird stuff going on, and queue the video of the Theoretical Physics class last year.

On that board are the beginnings of The Tempest, the butterfly's wings if you will."The video flips to a picture of the Cairnsium core and the machine that makes it, all covered in paneling so nobody can see how it works."This, is the result of those wings, it is a material of my design that produces more power than the Hoover Dam. The particulars are a trade secret, but know that it is 100% safe so long as it isn't touched.""And this..." The trapdoor underneath the stage opens and fog machines and fans give the illusions of a cyclone, before revealing a sleek, red car."Is The Tempest. It gets as many miles to the gallon as you can drive, since it never has to be refueled. I know that it's hard to believe, but I will demonstrate. The parking brake is down as of right now, I am going to place a cinder block on the accelerator and leave it there until it overheats, runs out of fuel, or quits running for any reason."

Everyone seems unaware, but you see a silhouette run across the rooftop of a building and vanish.The rest of the event goes without incident, the tires squeal well into the next day when you think you made your point and you pick up the block. You already have people lining up to buy the design from you, but you aren't confirming them yet. That would be bad business. You show off some tricks that the Nanomachines can do and everyone seems thoroughly impressed by the display.You head back to the dorm after the second day of the expo and find a man in your room."Who are you and why are you in my room?""Thomas Cairn, I'm Jules and I was sent from the future to ensure your safety, I may be a bit late due to a detour. Time travel isn't that precise.">Issue 12 over, you know the drill.>You got 2 Tech Points for showing up. You're special and I'm proud.>No Plot Point because this isn't over yet>You made a deal with the QM, probably a poor choice>Shadows from the past stir, hungry for blood.>Tech next post

>>40931425I DONT WANT TO GET SUICIDAL ARE YOU STUPID.
>>40931425It also unlocks shit like making UltRON if we have a bad day.
>>40931425I wouldn't mind getting it but we do need to set up some precautions.
>>40931478Like gettingJUST FUCKEN BREATHEEEEEEE as a perk.
>>40931425How about you calm the fuck down and not type in all caps mate? Pym power is nice yes but making breakdowns even worse is not good yeah? If you are dead set on getting it get the other perks that the one anon suggested beforehand to limit its downside as much as possible.

>>40931596But why what?
>>40931613Keep everything as is.
>>40931613Switch to sensor array.
>>40931613The reason for the fighting is that both the pros and the cons for it are incredibly vague and huge.
>>40931613No it seems that some people just want impossible possible regardless of downsides. At least to me.
>>40931613We're good, yeah.>>40931631Just messing around, I figure nobody will want to change it
>>40931613so we can just spend money now to upgrade our slots?If so let's spend 40k and upgrade our Arms and Head
>>40931613>I know I made a good Perk when, even though you lack Plot Points, you still fight over it.We technically don't know what we're fight over which is why we're fighting over it.
>>40931649>>40931655If I narrowed down the language it would not be a very good perk and it would kill the mystery of it. I will say that the Tech Trees you unlock would be ridiculous.>>40931675It requires a Tech Point.Guess we're keeping it.
>>40931691Pym Power is a perk necessary to unlock some of the more 'Sci-Fi' realms of science, such as Faster-Than-Light travel, Time Travel, shrink rays, and interdimensional shenanigans.
>>40931722>such as Faster-Than-Light travel, Time Travel, shrink rays, and interdimensional shenanigans.what you want to say is more problems since each an every one while useful causes a fuck tun of issues.
>>40931691Honestly. It's that it seems to come from Hank Pym who I generally loathe as a comic book character. He always seems to cry bitch tears when anything sets him back at all. Oh no the experiment only increased output by ten percent not twenty. Gets a gun and contemplates suicide is not fun for a hero. And for a perk to have the chance of that isn't something I want for tommy boy.
>>40931749Really I just want it for space flight. Once humanity is off of earth, we can do whatever we want as far as medical improvement goes without worrying about overpopulation.
>>40931722You seem to be missing out on the negative portions of that perk.It makes Breakdowns much more catastrophic, something that is made yet worse by the fact that breakdowns are Required for new tech trees now.We haven't even seen a single breakdown yet, and people want to make them worse.
>>40931769Breakdown doesnt mean that will happen. Get past the namesake.
That's it for thread 12, it was rather interesting to say the least. I will not be able to run this week, but keep an eye out next week. My twitter is @xLostCowboyx.This thread's question is:>Who do you think Menace is?>>40931769I won't touch suicide unless it makes sense, and things would have to be pretty crazy to get near that.
>>40931722I know that part it's just the "catastrophic breakdowns" that's turning people off it. As long we can get a guarantee that he won't kill us because of those breakdowns.>>40931815>We haven't even seen a single breakdown yet, and people want to make them worse.We actually have.
>>40931822>Who do you think Menace is?Mum
>>40931788your thinking we wont get an alien race to notice earth and attack like the skurill
>>40931815Wait how does that work exactly, we can't make breakthroughs in biology unless we go psycho over a sandwich or something?
>>40931822Either James or our girlfriend.
>>40931822>I won't touch suicide unless it makes sense, and things would have to be pretty crazy to get near that.So unless we fuck up horribly.
>>40931841That'd be a kinda fun if bland arc actuallyCome on it happens every weekend in comics.>>40931822Menace is the president.
>>40931822i dont think we met them yet but my best guess would be one of the techers
>>40931843Well he should remove that requirement if we get Pym power.
>>40931822Thomas from the future.
>>40931843No, new Trees, as in new areas of research, not new ideas in the current ones.
>>40931821Breakdown doesn't mean it won't. With the new tech trees Lost has made breakdowns mandatory to advance making Pym power even more of a drawback in my eyes as every week we'd collapse or go beautiful mind hallucinating government agents. Not a fun thing to participate in.
>>40931914Makes sense now, thanks.
>>40931914Would it be possible to use Cloaker bots to make a floating TV/"hologram" type thing?
>>40931949>Pym power even more of a drawback in my eyes as every week we'd collapse or go beautiful mind hallucinating government agents. >Not a fun thing to participate in.Says you.
>>40931914Are there any other supergenius close enough to us that we might meet?
>>40931969Not floating, but yes.>>40931949Repeated whining and shit isn't a breakdown, I roll to determine what you do. Ideally, it will be completely random.
>>40931949Fortune favors the bold, you baby.
For maximum sincerity in the votes for plotpoints and techpoints, lost, we should do the "quote only this post and the number of the option you vote for" final destination votingMy bet is that there's been samefagging in the past
>>40932007Maybe, but if I gave you a real answer that would be metagaming.>>40931841Not in this arc you ain't>>40931937I actually shy away from including "He's a Nazi" in my villains. Much too predictable.>>40931845Just confirming that you know James is your dad.>>40932106Probably, I have been trying to fix that.
>>40932132What about another type of nationalist.Crazy greek man trying to steal the EU?
>>40932132>I actually shy away from including "He's a Nazi" in my villains. Much too predictable.What about Feminazis?
>>40932132>Just confirming that you know James is your dad.I'm guessing he meant Mr Salvos and just slapped dad's name on him.
>>40932233Too cliche actually
>>40932132I think Menace is Creeper.
>>40932174Maybe I will, I have been planning something for a bit.>>40932233I don't think that will rear it's ugly head in this quest. I already have the Heroes Union to make jabs with.>>40932235Okay.He might have gotten it right.
Lost have we met Menace at all? In their super getup or regular clothes? Met as in interacted with as players.
>>40932369You don't think so.

Let me enlighten you on the origins of Menace's concept...Ahem...Thread one Shitstorm
Is this one archived?>>40932718Fuark, gotta check to remember now
Lost, how hyped are you for the Ant-Man movie?
