>Hey all! This is my first quest. I've had the idea for a while. Hope you like it.>MIDNIGHTYou're up much later than normal, alone in your apartment. You've been keeping later nights ever since you moved to Gotham a few weeks ago for school. It seems like all you've been doing is wasting time on the internet though.Suddenly you hear a knock on the door. You answer it.Outside, you see a one of the biggest men you've ever seen. He must be nearly 7 feet tall, and all muscle. His neck looks so thick you doubt he can even turn his head. But the most striking thing about him is that he's wearing a baggy polka-dotted onesie and his face is painted white with red lipstick. He's holding a green box in his hand, wrapped with a bow.>The boss said for me to give this to someone at this address. He said to look for a....Time to Vote! First, I need a gender.>Gender?
>>42501489>>42501492That's two for male. Male it is.Now how about a name and description.>Hair color and style?>Build?>anything else you want to add

>>42501534BrockBlonde hairAverage height, kinda skinnyLooks kinda creepy but he's a nice guy
>>42501633Come on lads, I don't know why but I have a good feeling about blonde so I'll put my vote behind this.>>42501630This was me
>>42501609>>42501630>>42501633>>42501657Alright, lets combine these.>Brock Carter>Blonde Hair>Blue Eyes>Average height, kinda skinny>Looks kinda creepy but he's a nice guyWriting now
>>42501736You are Brock Carter, 6'3" and thin as a rail. People have always found you creepy, but you have a good heart. You came to Gotham for college."Boss said to look for some skinny kid living here. You got it so dark in there I almost couldn't recognize you. Damn if you ain't a tall one though."You find this funny coming from the giant outside."Boss said to give this to you."You know the kinds of things that go on in Gotham. And you know what a clown in Gotham means. Your heart is racing. "C'mon kid I ain't got all night. You gonna let me in or what?"What do you do?>invite the big man in and take the box>take the box>call for help>write in
>>42501845>invite the big man in and take the box
>>42501845>invite the big man in and take the boxWe /trusting/ now
>>42501845>>invite the big man in and take the boxwhy are we on the Joker's radar, this is shady man.
>>42501845>>invite the big man in and take the boxWant some coffee?
>>42501865>>42501891>>42501894>>42501902>invite the big man in and take the box
>>42501939I know where this is going....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TrZFxhrPUI
>>42501939>invite the big man in and take the box"Uh...yeah, sure. Come on in." You move and let the giant sqeeze into your apartment. Most of your things are still in boxes, but the couch is clear enough to sit on. He does not sit down."About time..." He pulls the door shut behind him and fastens the locks. There's no easy way out now, except the fire escape. You doubt you could escape the giant in this tiny room though."Now. The box." He pushes the box at you, and goes on to check the rest of your apartment, closing window shades and making sure you're alone.You sit on the couch, and slowly undo the ribbon on the green box...
>>42502083well gg anons see you next time I guess.
>>42502138Nah, this is are in into the crimefighting scene.
>>42502083Are we die.
>>42502317>>[swear]The actual fuck?
>>42502083You're dead. You can't feel your extremities. Your heart has stopped. You just blew yourself up letting a 7 foot tall clown into your house in Gotham fucking City."THE HELL?!" The clown thunders into the room waving an oversized revolver, as confetti falls all around you. The clown relaxes and scowls. You still think you are dead.He motions at you with his gun. "Alright chief get a move on. I ain't got all night." He walks over to you. Inside the box are a bow-tie, a set of chattering teeth (still chattering away,) and a folded sheet of paper that seems to have a lipstick kiss on it.You pick up the note, and unfold it. Written in red grease are three lines:>WHATS MINE IS YOURS>-MR.J>HA HA HAThe big man seems visibly upset upon seeing it. "Aw hell. C'mon..." He takes the note, reading it to himself over and over, looking at it upside down and backwards, as if trying to find some secret meaning. Finally he sighs, and hands the slip back to you."The Boss is dead chief. Looks like you're the new Joker."Oh hell.What do you do?>?????>?!?!?!>[swear]>(Write In)
>>42502344>>?????laugh? surely this is a joke. i thought we were dead for sure

>>42502424> Laugh like a goddamn maniac
>>42502344>LaughThis is clearly a strange, and somewhat poorly executed joke. Almost definitely not sent by the ACTUAL joker.Also, ya gotta fit the character.
>>42502424>>[swear]: "The actual fuck?"Then start laughing This is actually crazy
>>42502424Do it all
>>42502424>[swear]: "The actual fuck?">so what do I own now

>>42502424>Start laughingA worried laugh>This some kind of joke, right?>Am I being tricked into being a lackey or something?
>>42502611>The boss never jokes ar- wait... Shit.
>>42502424>>42502444>>42502407You can barely decide what to do. You're mind is racing. You might pass out."What the actual fuck."You start laughing. You laugh like a fucking madman. You laugh until you can barely breath. You don't know why, you just don't know what else to do.The clown looks on, still scowling. "Yeah, looks like you got that part down already."Gradually you come back to your senses as reality takes hold again. The terror you felt when the clown first came to your door is back. How deep have you gotten yourself in? Is there a way out?All you manage to muster it to ask meekly, "So...what exactly do I own?""Everything," says the clown. " The gang. The base. Contacts. Weapona. Hyenas. A roomful of chemicals. Some suits. I don't know what the hell you did kid but you fell ass backwards into runnin' half this town," he catches himself for a second, before finishing up with "...Boss.""I suppose you'll be wanting to see the base now? We'll want to get this taken care of before dawn."What do you do?>Ask the man questions (write in)>Go see the base
>>42502682>>Go see the baseJust follow him quietly, question our sanity right now.
>>42502682>Go see the base>Ask the man questionsSo, you probably don't know, but when I get there the Joker's not gonna pop out and shoot me, right?
>>42502682>Go see the baseSo you don't have any idea why he chose me? What was Joker doing before he disappeared or died or whatever?
>>42502682>Ask the man questionsDid something happen to the last guy?
>>42502682>>Ask the man questions (Ask about the bigshots in the gang, ask about weapons and suits. finally, ask about rivals and threats to the gang.)>>Go see the base
So.Do we get Harleen as well?Because I'm on board for this.
>>42502890One of the first rules of bro "Don't stick your dick in crazy."
>>42502918I agree or at least with harleen
>>42502918Screw the rules we're a gang lord now. plus it might be interesting having a quest protag with crazy instead of the usual stuff.
>>42502977I'd be lying if I said that wouldn't be fun, but we need to work up to it. We didn't start crazy
>>42502977Let's unite all the Anti-Batmen and then dress them up as Batman and stop him from preventing other Gotham villains.While we commit other crimes when he's busy.
>>42503034I meant sticking dick in crazy but yeah that does sound fun now that you mention it.
>>42502807You still feel like you're in a daze. You simply nod and follow the clown, locking your door as you've done a hundred times before. You wonder if you'll ever be back.A junked up old volkswagen is parked on the street, so beaten and rusty you can barely tell what color it used to be. He opens the passenger door for you, and you climb inside. He goes around to the driver's seat and sqeezes in, his shoulders touching the ceiling. You can feel the little car bottom out when he gets inside.He begins to drive through your fashionable college neighborhood towards Old Gotham.Regaining a bit of composure, you begin asking questions."...am I going to be killed when I get there?""Ah geez kid, nobody's gonna kill you. You're the boss now. Whether we like it or not." He grits his teeth. "One thing you learn under Mr.J is to never question leadership. Things go sour real fast when you do.""Besides, the Boss never stayed dead for long. Nobody wants to risk being on his bad side when he comes back." Your heart sinks at this part."What happend to the Joker? The last Joker, I mean?""Tangle with Bats," says the clown. "Don't know the details myself." You've heard of Gotham's Bat Man. Some urban legend the people tell. Or a vigilante, no one is sure. "There's a real Batman?" The clown just laughs.(Cont)
>>42502807Can you add something like"If I'm your boss go ahead and strip to your boxers and wear your pants on your head" somewhere along those lines.
>>42503124"What about the other gang members? Who are they? Will they give me any trouble?""We got a lot of street guys. They won't give you any trouble. Probably won't even notice; you got the right build. The inner circle might be a little more trouble.""There's Top Hat. Real jackass. Handles finances. He's always been eyeing power. Watch your back with him. And Lefty and Righty, the twins. Share a brain cell between them. They just follow orders.""Then there's Knock, he leads the street gangers. Good with guns. Bad with authority.""And Dottie. Watch it with her. She's a real hardass. Mean as a snake but loyal to the end. Can't say the same about Holly. If she smells fresh meat she'll come running. Never trust Holly.""And you?" You ask."Dwayne. I do what the Boss says. And the Boss said you're the Boss.""...Dwayne?," you ask. "No nickname?"He looks over at you. "That is my nickname." You decide to drop the sublject.(Cont)
>>42503409"You mentioned suits. What about those?"He seems puzzled. "There's some green ones and some purple ones. They'll probably fit you, I guess."You think better of it, but you can't help but ask. "What about the...the girl that was always with the Joker?"He laughs out loud. "Harley's otherwise engaged at the moment kid. Hasn't run with us for the last year." He stops laughing, and a sharp tone comes into his voice. "Watch it with dames kid. Especially now that you're the Boss."You're passing through the worst part of Gotham; the part they warned you not to go to in school. Broken glass litters the street."If...if I'm really the Boss now, could I tell you to strip to your boxers and wear your pants on your head?"Dwayne seems taken aback, before he lets out a low chuckle. "This thing IS my underwear kid. Free moving and breezy, just how I like it."You are sorry you asked.The car has arrived at the outskirts of town now, and is pulling in to an abandoned amusement park. The sagging roofs and faded paint of the buildings make everything look like it's melting into the dark of the early morning. A broken one-eyed statue of a clown is looking down at you."Alright kid, we're here. We're headed to the funhouse."
>>42503677As the giant clown leads you through the dilapidated amusement park, you feel as though you're walking through a nightmare. He leads you into the fun house, through a maze of mirrors which he must have memorized, down a flight of creaking stairs, and into a huge hollowed-out warehouse. Bits of broken statuary, costumes, boxes of moldy prizes, and replacement machinery for rides sits in piles, along with boxes of chemicals and piles of guns.Those are probably new.In one corner, a pair of fat men in identical costumes sit on a sagging couch watching cartoons, while a girl in a clown outfit with an eye patch sits nearby, cleaning a gun and smoking a cigarrete. The overfilled ashtray indicates this has been going on for quite a while.In another corner, an african american man in whiteface, oversized trousers, and suspenders is sitting on a table. When Dwayne leads you into the room, his eyes turn to him, then you, and he begins to angrily come towards you. He seems to be drawing his gun."The fuck is this? The fuck are you doing?"Quick! What do you do?>write in
>>42503895Draw Dwayne's gun or ask him for it and cap that bitch right in the patellum.
>>42503895What, don't recognize your boss?
>>42503895Hide behind dwayne while screaming "Dwayne, disarm him, that's an order!"
>>42503895Your boss gave dwayne a box with some teeth and a letter in it. Apparently the letter says I'm your new boss.
>>42503895Spit in his eye, punch him in the throat, take gun, trip him and then "that any way to greet the new joker?"
>>42503979>>42504050Guys really, we were jut freaking out about this, at least let the crazy build up before we start doing shit like this.
>>42503895"You tell them. No way they'd believe it from my lips"
>>42504070Come on, we got to exert authority and power. Can't have the goons stepping up, remember the 48 laws of power. That's the only thing these folks understand.
>>42503979>>42503983>>42504038>>42504039>>42504050Possible choices are:>draw Dwayne's gun and try to shoot>attempt extreme violence while insisting you're the new boss>insist you're the new boss>hide behind Dwayne and squeal like a girl
>>42504141Or >>42504113>"You tell them. No way they'd believe it from my lips"
>>42504141>draw Dwayne's gun and try to shoot
>>42504141Tell a knock knock joke to assert power!
>>42504141>>insist you're the new bossExplain it carefully and let Dwayne say his piece as well.
>>42504141>"You tell them. No way they'd believe it from my lips"Guess I could calm my murder boner.
>>42504141>>insist you're the new bosson second thought i'd rather delay the violence till we get some training from Dottie. sounds like she knows how to and the Loyalty is best til we can handle knock in loyalty and learn guns from him
>>42504166Something like this, not quite a knock knock though.>Why did the kid drop his ice cream cone in the street?>He was hit by the truck...Then just laugh uproariously.
>>42504154I like this
>>42504141>draw Dwayne's gun and try to shootSince OP thought I meant squeal like a bitch>hide behind Dwayne and squeal like a girlSuprises me the the MC changed that quick.
>>42504219Seems like we're trying to hard to be the old joker.
>>42503895"Knock Knock."You couldn't catch yourself. The words simply fell out of your mouth.The man with the gun flinches for a second. "Who's there?"Everyone is staring at you. Even the two fat clowns have looked away from their cartoons. You swallow. "Your new boss?"Silence. The noise from the TV seems almost deafening.
>>42504268Yeah.... we have to keep up the image though, there have been previous Jokers and we have big shoes to fill.
>>42504303I laughed.That was good.
>>42504141>insist you're the new boss
>>42504333>and we have big shoes to fill.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDY5liXjM3c
>>42504303"...Dwayne? What's this about?" Asks the girl.The man in front of you looks you dead in the eye."Your new boss... Who?"You open the box you've been holding since you left your house, and hand the man the slip of paper. As soon as he sees the lipstick print, his hand drops from his gun.He looks at Dwayne, shock and defeat in his eyes.Dwayne sighs. "Boss's orders, Knock. Meet the new Joker."What do you do now?>write inQM Note: I have to step out for a bit. I'll be back in a few to continue,
>>42504482Welp get their names and try not to get killed in the process.
>>42504482Sooo hahaha? I got nothing.
>>42504482>write inGet to know everyone, see what sort of business we're supposed to look after (like how the gang gets its funding).
>>42504482>You got something on your shirt>Flick his noseThen snap our fingers and ask status report.....make it snappy.
>>42504482Now I need lists, names, and such. Anyplace where the previous Joker kept records or such I need to see now, and names of you all and specialties?
>>42504482Introductions and a quick rundown of how things go around here .Maybe talk to Dottie and Knock afterword
>>42504482>What are we majoring in? Please say drama or psychology. . . If so this "All right boys and girls back to bussiness, give me a minute to get my face and then we'll think of what kinda show to put on tonight!" keep a strong sarcastic front and smile sadisticly we need to keep the act up otherwise we might get knocked off.
>>42504632* face on is what I meant to say
I hope my room in Arkham is comfy.What's our relationship to the rogue gallery?Can we order pizza and not pay?
>>42504663>Can we order pizza and not pay?Always an option, when you have superior firepower.
>>42504534>>42504536>>42504548>>42504572>>42504615>>42504620>>42504632>>42504654>>42504663Alright, let me get started writing.
>>42504632We Can rely on the twins, dwayne and dottie for protection till we get better at gang leading.
>>42504761Really we just met them so no we can't trust any of them. Would you really trust your life with a bunch of gangsters you just met? I sure as hell wouldn't.
>>42504863They'll follow the jokers orders and apparently he wants us to be the boss
>>42504863Dwayne said they're reliable.knock might swing either way but the only one i see being a real problem is Top Hat
>>42504917So when do we break out the joker venom?We're going to need to learn how to make it.
>>42504962We could probably scout out some scientist to add to our gangs bigshots that could look into that.
>>42504962I'm sure there's a stockpile somewhere
>>42504482The tension has lessened, but one thing is very clear: these people are uncomfortable with your presence. A stranger, and a young one at that, has just walked in and declared himself leader of a street gang. On the night of their former boss's apparent death. Any other time, its likely you would not have made it out of this room alive. You still aren't 100% sure you will."I guess some introductions are in order, right? A status report?"The man in front of you looks disgusted. "Knock." He says nothing else, and shoves his way past you and up the stairs.The girl lights another cigarette, her red lipstick smearing on it. Her eye patch is bright yellow with a smiley face on it. "Dottie." She takes a deep draw. "I hurt people. These two are Lefty and Righty. Don't ask me which is which." The twins have gone back to their cartoons."Most of the gang doesn't know the Boss is dead, so you're in luck there.""The old boss," pipes in Dwayne. "The old Boss," repeats Dottie. "The only ones who know are those of us at the top. That little stunt with Knock definitely didn't make you any friends, but he won't move against you now. He's probably gone off to think.""You took him by surprise. That's a big deal in this gang," says Dwayne. "Just try to work on your jokes next time.""There is a problem though," says Dottie. "The gang's finances are in Top Hat's hands, which means you gotta go through him to get money. Until he's under your thumb, this gang isn't going to be in your control.""So what about gang operations? What do we control?" You ask."A couple smaller street gangs pay up to us, and most of the businesses on the edge of town give us a cut," says Dwayne."Through Top Hat." says Dottie.(Cont)
>>42505200"So how does the gang operate?"Dottie doesn't hesitate. "Fear." Another drag on her cigarette. "The street gangers make the money, and the Boss at the top attracts the heat. He makes us visible. Makes people scared. A normal person might pay up to a banger with a gun, but everybody pays up to a man who might gas a whole city block on a whim."Dwayne interjects, "The gang worked around the Boss, see? The Boss doesn't run day to day ops, but the whole gang hinges on him. And now it hinges on you."Dottie stands up, her gun fully assembled. "This has been fun, but I'm going to see if I can find Knock. Before he makes things worse. Most of the gang's lying low tonight. Good luck kid. You're gonna need it." She heads on up the stairs."Most of us crash here," says Dwayne. "Boss has his own room. Tomorrow we're gonna get you looking presentable."(cont)
Oh god OP this is cool already, let's fucking do this.I'm going for the 'this is my true calling' thing. You know, walking through life never really feeling like we fit in anywhere, etc. Dream job shit here. Slow descent into semi-madness. I'm hype, OP. Let's fucking do this.
>>42505462I agree anon. Hype is hyped.
>>42505492It's not hype is hyped. It's maximum over-hype.
We could still be a good guy to if we wanted by fighting other gangs for control of the city.
I'm hyped for when we eventually become a considerably larger blip on batman's radar. I mean, trying to escape him is hard, killing him is also just as hard.
>>42505535That's interesting. A corrupted sense of justice? Not batman-style, of course. But maybe.But truly good is overrated.
>>42505423Dwayne leads you through the halls into a bedroom. The room looks like a 1950's dad's bedroom, but all done up in green and purple. Even his bedroom is a joke.Dwayne shuts the door behind you. For the first time you're alone with your thoughts. This morning you were a college aged slacker, working on a Psychology degree. Now you are Gotham's most wanted man. You lie on top of the bed, and finally fall asleep.>NOON THE NEXT DAYThere's a knock on the door, and you wake with a start. You hope the previous night's adventures were a nightmare until you see the green and purple room around you.Damn.Dwayne pops your door open, Dottie following behind him, shutting and locking the door behind her. "Wake up sunshine. We gotta get you prepped for the day."The two immediately get to work, Dottie dumping out a filthy bag of makeup, Dwayne opening the closets and drawers and piling suits and clothing onto the bed."Pick something out. We gotta get you out there.">Time to get dressed! How should our Joker dress?
>>42501442Use the word quest in your subject so this is easy to filter away. Thanks
>>42505717> Green and purple.
>>42505717Only idea is that whatever we wear it should be in Dark purple and Crimson red
>>42505717Green and purple suit.Mime make up in same colors.
Is our guy more of a snazzy dresser? I could imagine something like a Victorian style outfit, but I'll leave myself out of this.
>>42505717The usual wear with a hint of purple and green here and there. Maybe khaki pants with some green shoes and purple shirt?
>>42505717Whatever suit you guys want.I'm voting for getting a joke-esque mask instead of makeup, although we'd have to ease the underlings into that shit. And a stylish hat. We need a stylish hat.
>>42505717A purple waistcoat, a green dress shirt, stick a yellow flower in the lapel that shoots acid. Strap for an oversized revolver so that it's quite visible on the chest, but it's a gag revolver. Have a hidden gun assassin's creed style hidden under the sleeves of the coat. Striped Purple dress pants, fancy shoes, and a tiny hat that's actually a bomb. Same makeup.
>>42505717Dress up like Brandon Lee's The Crow>This has been my Halloween costume since the movie.
>>42505717I guess we go for the classic look for now? Maybe throw in a wide brimmed hat and a stylized gas mask?
>>42505200>>42505423>>42505717Smiley, what happened to your trip?
Are there any limits to this, OP? Is it just clothing, or can we do something like this guy >>42505834>>42505852I vote for a hat, at least. Everything else I don't really care about, as long as it sets us a little apart from the original.
>>42505717Purple slacks, green dress shirt with rolled up sleeves and suspenders. And gloves.
>>42505876Oops, sorry.>>42505717 was real.
>>42505923+1 for gloves
>>42505839I like the makeup for that, I could go with that theme. Sample, for anyone who wishes it.
>>42506003Slightly better angle.
>>42505749>>42505756>>42505773>>42505776>>42505782>>42505783>>42505834>>42505839>>42505852>>42505878>>42505923Alright, calling it. >purple waistcoat and slacks>suspenders>green shirt>stylish hat>stylized gas mask as requiredWriting
>>42506029>purple waistcoat and slacks
We need one of two things:A)big red noseB)Groucho glasses
>>42506029>stylized gas mask as required
>>42506062I'd go with the second. Although, having a gasmask with that on it would be neat.
>>42506051>>42506073That wasn't a vote, sorry. It's all of those things.
>>42506095I'd be down for that being the stylization of the gas mask.
>>42506179Oh no, sounds like Batsy's having a heart attack!
We have got to compare ourselves to Herpes when Batman asks who we are.
>>42506179Okay. So here's how we handle the bat.We kidnap Bruce Wayne, lead daily planet reporter Clark Kent to a trap and force him to write our ransom to Gotham P.D. and they will contact Batman.When they meet, we ambush them and throw rocks at them! Leaving Kent's body with the evidence.Full proof.
>>42506245"Herpes? Or is it Hercules?"I can see it now
>>42506266I don't see any way this could go wrong.And I bet a pansy trust-fund child like Bruce wouldn't even put up a fight!
>>42506266Sarcasm aside, I don't think we're gonna even come close to handling the bat. I'm thinking we just give him impossible situations. Save this woman or catch me, come after me and a hundred die from this bomb, etc, etc.
>>42506266Hooray for metagaming
>>42506303We can try to handle robin the girl wonder.
>>42506322Joker can see past the fourth wall too.Just not as blatant as Deadpool, Ambush Bug or She Hulk.
>>42506303>"So, bats, you've caught me. Unfortunately, in two minutes an entire bank vault full of people is about to get gassed. To defuse the explosives wired to the inside of the vault to keep anyone from opening it, I would have to get to my 'Off' button located on the roof. Of course, if you aren't there to open the vault door, it won't really matter, will it?"
>>42506303We could try and have him ally with us. we keep the violence to gangs and away from regular people .I don't know enough about batman to know if he'd fall for that.
>>42506322Funnily enough, it's meta-gaming in spite of itself."Hey guys, let's do this thing that would get us killed"
>>42506363The best part, it's a complete lie. He probably knows it, too, but he can't risk it. So he goes anyways.Even better, the explosives are just gags.
>>42506333We have to use this line sometime.
>>42506364He'd only ally if we were fighting an evil bigger than both of us, and only if we insisted, I'd think. Or roped him into it, somehow.>>42506333Pretty sure we can handle a few of the knock-offs just fine, honestly. But the big man is a little different. Separating them should be the way to go.
>>42506392While he saves them and figures they're fake we actually kill someone just for the giggles.
>>42505717>>42506029You quickly toss off yesterday's pants and shirt and begin to pull your costume together. You grab a pair of purple slacks and a green shirt, and pull a matching purple waistcoat over it, a pair of suspenders still attached. You finish it off with the bowtie from the box from last night."Alright, c'mere." Dottie motions to you, and quickly gets to work. "Nothing we can do about the hair today. We'll have to dye it later." She pulls your hair tightly into knot with a rubber band. "Just grab a hat on the way out."She opens a filthy jar of white greasepaint and smears it between her hands, rubbing it over your face and across your neck. She finishes up with a smear of red greasepaint across your mouth."Alright," she sighs. "It'll have to do."You grab a hat and look in the mirror. Grinning back is a face you've seen on TV many times, generally accompanied by a death toll. You put your hat on."Wait, one more thing." Dwayne attaches a flower to your lapel, and puts a small pump in the front pocket. "Acid. Just in case. For god's sake don't squeeze the damn thing unless you have to.""This is crazy," says Dottie, wiping the grease from her hands on an old rag. "Crazy's what we do," you say.You unlock the door, and three of you head out into the central room.
>>42506562Probably gonna come in the next post.We need to slick back our startlingly green hair once we get it dyed.
>>42506562Why though? Let's save it for when we actually need to wear it
>>42506603Establish we're the Jokerz now.Put on the mask and gas anyone who disagrees.
>>42506714We just got this gig. We are still sane at the moment. Give the insanity some time to grow.
>>42506740This quest is gonna die after thread 2 or 3 anyways, might as well have some fun with it.
>>42506740As much as I wanna go full crazy darth vader, I agree with this guy. Full-on 'I'm different when I put on the mask' can come later.
Should we make the gang dress classy but with some clownish aspects like the nose or dyed hair, the color of the suits and such purple and green of course.
>>42506469In the main hall, the twins are back in their corner. About twelve gangers in various degrees of clown livery are milling about, and Knock is back in his corner.Knock seems visibly upset by your presence. "Well, morning, BOSS." The meaning of his words are lost on the others in the room. Dwayne shoots him a look, and he shrinks back a bit."Alright boss, what's on the agenda for tonight?" asks Dwayne. "After last night's...losses, it might me a good idea to hit somewhere to make sure no one gets any ideas."You know Dwayne is giving you an in, and a chance to get your feet wet.>What do you do?>Terrorist attack?>Smash and grab crime?>Some kind of stunt?Elaborate a bit, but Dwayne and Dottie can probably guide you once you've presented an idea. Just remember, it's about 2:00PM, and you want to do it tonight- you've not got a lot of prep time.
>>42506770Why do you say that?
>>42506790Sounds expensive. Dress pants covered in purple paint with white shirts and some suspenders, probably some facepaint too, would work okay. Just my opinion, though.
>>42506795>Some kind of stunt?>Smash and grab crime?A bit of both, maybe? Show that the Joker is still in town, in a sense, and also get some cash as well.
>>42506818We could paint a gasmask on town hall. Or gas somewhere. Anywhere.There is only the mask, now.
>>42506795>>Smash and grab crime?>>Some kind of stunt?I like the way this guy thinks>>42506818
>>42506795Break out at Arkham and Blackgate.Recruitment time boys!
>>42506795Go to a police station and replace all their guns with fake guns. Then, rob a house a few buildings over and kill all the cops that come to get us.
>>42506858Not a bad idea, but needs planning.
>>42506795>"Actually, a better idea. Top Hat, if you had to grade our gang's success over the last month, what would you give it?"We will take the letter grade, make a video saying we're either proud (if they got an A) or disappointed (if they got a B or less) and then say we'll commit a proportionate crime. If it's an F-, God help them all, we're taking car bombs, dolling them up to look like police cruisers and swapping them out with actual cruisers.
>>42506848just saying, the gas mask is a shitty emblem for the joker
>>42506795>Smash and grab crime?Big bank robbery
>>42506714Fuck that.I've been rewatching BotF. The Jokerz were a bloody disappointment.>>42506795>>Smash and grab crime?>>Some kind of stunt?Por que no los dos? Use the stunt, possibly a series of explosives planted throughout Gotham in high traffic areas, as a distraction. Blow our way into wherever we rob at the same time as the third round of detonations. End goal is to have all the wreckage give Gotham a great big smile from above. With our target being the nose.
>>42506795>>Terrorist attack?>>Smash and grab crime?City wide robberys everywhere and spread apart at the same time with some sort of Terrorist attack at some landmark. So it distracts all the police away so all our soldiers get away easily.plus makes a lot of cash without top hat
>>42506876More Scarecrow to me.
>>42506795The announcement of a new crucible and it shall be the jokers crucible.>Some kind of stunt?>Terrorist attack?Hijack the television airways and do a little skit of playing doctor or magic show with the mayor of Gotham or someone important. While that's happening free some key players out of prison for a favor or just to join the gang.
eventually we're gonna have to get our own Joker look.
>>42506921this is amazing, god damn.do this.
>>42506921>>42506970Even better, have the doctor rez us, to show that the big joke's back in town.
>>42506815Something like that, a classy look with some clown accessories.
>>42506921Pretty sure consensus won't be achieved otherwise, so changing my vote from>>42506863to this.
I was hoping we could do our own Joker thing instead of trying to follow in our predecessors footsteps. More Violent and practical with a bit of the old joker magic
>>42506992Take a doctor hostage, convince him to pretend to save us, and then kill him by "operating" on him.
>>42507021>we will never just be the classy as almighty fuck jokerthis is depressing.
>>42507027> operateYou mean stab, right?
>>42507027>Can't find this doc's funny bone anywhere!
>>42507048>No wonder he didn't laugh at my jokes!
>>42507048>>42507068>I thought you guys were all about the humors!
>>42507107> Well, you know what they say, doc!> Pull apple out of pocket> Beat doc down with apple> Once out of frame, start stabbing> Stand up, walk to camera> Looks like it works, folks!
>>42507107>You know, I've always found the upper arm to be QUITE humerus.
>>42507150>Smack the doc around with his own arm. "Quit hitting yourself!"
So, there any consensus? I'm for the new medical drama, but that's me.
>>42506921I voted for this
>>42507186>Holds up his arm and legWell. This is what he charged for his patients. Karma really got him on this one.
>>42506921This prety much, have our men do the prison escape while we're live.
>>42506818>>42506852>>42506863>>42506872>>42506906>>42506910>>42506913>>42506921A number of ideas race through your mind. "Tell me, Top Hat," you ask. "How would you rate our gang's performance in the last few months?"The gang looks confused. Knock smirks. "Top Hat's not here, Boss. He had other things to do."Damn.Dwayne jumps in, "Yeah, well, we'll do something about him and Holly later."You think back to some of the film classes you've taken, and some of the things you'd seen on the news about the old Joker. "Visibility is key. Where do we stand on TV broadcasting?" A smile crosses Dottie's face. "I'll get Spike on the line.""And what about the rest of us?" says Knock."I'm thinking...explosions. Explosions and cops."The gangers begin whooping and cheering, ready to blow up some cops. Knock looks disappointed, and Dwayne gives you subtle bump on the back with his fists.It seems you did good. Now to get ready for our broadcast.
>>42507330Sounds like we're casting. So, magic show or medical drama? I still like the latter, but we can still use the governor or a especially dutiful judge.I'm all for blowing arkham tho
>>42506814Because QM's writing style is familiar to another QM that gets a quest going for two or three threads and then he promptly makes a new quest and forgets about the previous one.
>>42507482Well I hope that's not the case because this quest is fun so far.
>>42507527I like this quest to
Give Knock a dose of venom and Hugo strange's monster serum and we can turn him into..>Knock Out!
>>42507482Now that you say it, he does remind me of a couple QM's that make shitty quests that die a couple threads in.
>>42507482Sounds like a shitty thing to do. If this QM quits, I'd be for taking up the quest in his stead, although I've never run a quest before.
>>42507482As long as it ain't Turboteddy, I'm happy.
>>42507330Using your fancy college degree, you start writing up a quick skit. "Boss, this is real tight scheduling for this," says Dwayne. "At least you'll get Knock out and occupied. Going up against the cops will let the street guys burn off some steam."But you've got more on your mind than that. Top Hat, Knock, and Holly all think the Boss is dead. You want to send them a message.You hear someone coming down the stairs; it's Dottie, accompanied by a fat kid in messy clown makeup. He can't be more than sixteen, and he's carrying a McDonald's cup in his hand. Apparently he made Dottie take him through a drive-thru on the way."So you're the new J-Man, ey slim? Word," says then fat kid. You look to Dottie. She sighs. "This is Spike. He handles the gang's tech. He also keeps a line out for rumors, and has a bad habit of learning things he shouldn't." She elbows him in the gut, "And he can't keep his damn mouth shut."She leads Spike into a back room of the base, and you and Dwayne follow. Inside the room is a large computer setup and a small improvised television studio. Spike flops into the desk chair in front of the computer, and starts tapping away at some keys. The studio light switch on."Transmitter's up on the roller coaster. I can jack in to any of the local stations from here. I can do full spectrum with some prep time," the fat kid smirks, "but local's the best I can do tonight Boss.""It'll have to do. Alright, Dwayne. Get me...some costumes."
>>42507482>>42507693>>42507742Sorry, I've never run a quest before.>>42507697I'll keep that in mind.
>>42507800Well don't quit on us!
>>42507800Don't use me as an excuse to quit, Smiles. I've got faith in ya. It's fun so far.
>>42507800You have the same name as another QM by the by
>>42507777>Fat sixteen year old as our tech guyWe made it boys.
>>42507836Funny how they're running a quest at the same time.
>>42507788You might be able to find him in the archives.Short of it, though: shit QM who constantly forced his magical realm, and only went for 3 threads MAX.>>42507800Don't apologize. Some of my favorite quests have been that QMs first.
>>42507917Link? I'm still lost as to who you're talking about.
>>42507917Have to agree, there.But hot damn am I ready to channel my inner Joker.
>>42507956Question is, is our MC ready to? Is everyone an animal underneath just needing to put on a mask to unleash it?
I don't care if this is a one or two off. I'm going to have fun with it while it lasts.
>>42508002>is our MC ready to?I hope he tries a few times, fails, and then gets pushed to the breaking point by someone whom he then murders.
GM should make a twitter for quest times and news.
>>42507951Turns out I lied, 4 threads.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Sister+and+chaos+gods
>>42507777Gawddamn I laughed me ass off at that pic. More than I should have at least.
>>42508002Well all we really know is that he's q psych major who moved to Gotham for school, for all we know he could be a psychopath with several skeletons in his closet.
>>42508072Ugh. Just reading the descriptions make me cringe.
>>42507836Sorry, I'll fix it.>>42507777Lights, camera, action!All across Gotham, people tuning in to the local news find themselves watching a pair of doctors in clown makeup operating on a covered patient. A seven foot doctor is rigid as a bone-he might even be trembling. He mumbles his lines like a child in a school play, and stared directly into the camera. "Um...uh...s..scalp...el"The female doctor in a yellow eyepatch, however, is doing her best impression of a soap opera nurse. "Doctor!," she cries, the back of her hand on her forehead, smearing red blood across her face. "We're loosing him!" She grabs two handfuls of the hulking doctor's smock. "What will we do? WHAT WILL WE DO!?" She falls backwards, trying to achieve some approximation of sobbing.For weeks after, the people of Gotham argue over who was the worse actor.The figure on the table bolts upright, and pulls the sheet from his face. A familiar red and white grin adorns the face of Gotham's Televisions once again.(cont)
>>42508102I get what you mean. Remember when he started laughing when he became the new boss. The insanity slowly dripping out. Eventually the faucet will turn on its own.
>>42508102He could just be a separate personality the Joker made for himself. He's done it before
>>42508136"How are ya, Gotham?" You swing your legs off the table."It's your old pal, The Joker! Now, I'm gonna level with you folks. Old Mr.J, he's not been feeling so well recently. A bit under the weather, you might say." "But thanks to Gotham's finest doctors," you edge in to the camera, and mock-whisper, "not to mention a very generous health plan..."You jump up. "I'm back on my feet again and ready to welcome my adoring public! So to celebrate my new Funnybone transplant, I've set up some fireworks for all you lovely people out there!"Have fun, boys! HA HA HA HA HA HA!">CUT
>>42508278We're a little to young for that I'd think.
>>42508331>HA HA HA HA HA HA!"I kept hearing Krusty the Clown's laugh when I read this.
>>42508331So what exactly are we blowing up? Or, you know, shooting actual fireworks at?
>>42508404>Explosions and CopsCop cars, Police Stations, and Arkham Asylum are all possibilities.
>>42508404RPGs count as fireworks, right?
>>42508404The prison, I thought that was a plan, gain a few favors and more men?
>>42508444What about claymores and C4?
>>4250833110/10, best quest ever, NEVER STOP. YOU BELONG TO US NOW.
>Face to face with Bats>He knows we're not the real deal>Asks us why he went along with itAt first it was to keep them from killing me. Wait it out until the real one came back. Then I realized I enjoyed it, the power, the madness. You don't protect this city, or its citizens. This all one big joke to you.Well guess what. I'm the punch line.
>>42508449Sounds good to me, although bats would probably try and stop anything too major.>>42508444Of course! Just more complicated bottle rockets, right?>>42508469Your post gave me the idea of mines in cakes or pies. By extension, you're responsible.
>>42508504>At first it was to keep them from killing me. Wait it out until the real one came back. Then I realized I enjoyed it, the power, the madness.I'd rather if we say: "Didn't want anyone to kill me, so I went along with it until the real guy came back, but this has gotten pretty fun, actually."
>>42508516>mines in cakes or piesI find it hard to believe the joker hasn't done this before.
>>42508331All around Gotham, the Joker's gang and those related begin setting off small clusters of cheap pipe bombs and explosives, all targeting police vehicles. Soon other gangs and lowlives join in with looting. It's too chaotic for the riots to last more than a few hours, but the cost to the Gotham PD is significant.More importantly, you've sent a message to the other gang leaders. You've announced to the other gang leaders that you are the new Joker, and that both Dottie and Dwayne are on your side. And that you are capable of leading the gang.You've claimed the mantle of the Joker. Now you have to protect it.>Elsewhere in Gotham, a man sits alone inside his office. A playback of the pirate signal from earlier is playing back on the screen.>The man steeples his fingers. "It isn't him..."You exit the little studio with Dwayne and Dottie. Spike is still fiddling with his PC. Dwayne is pulling off his doctor's costume. "Look, I just don't do well with public speaking, okay?""Well, you still managed to put on quite a show." A thin man in a multicolored mess of a mock-Victorian outfit is sitting on the couch in the main room. "Top Hat. Finally decided to show up?" says Dottie."I just thought I'd come pay my respects to..." He looks you up and down, "...the new boss.">what do you do?
>>42508587Ask for a letter grade about the gang. Also was the acting that bad? Who was the worst?
We gotta keep this guy in check. He is vital so we have to treat him like it, or this city will drill us another asshole.
>>42508587>>42508587throw acid at him and laugh like a maniacthen throw some sodium hydroxide on his wounds and ask him why he's so salty about the new boss I'm just kidding this is not a real vote
>>42508587Batman knows I'm not the real deal.We should play that up. >Dress up innocent hostages as Jokers!
>>42508587>what do you do?Laugh, ask what took him so long, and ask what the funds are like.
>>42508587Smile then put your arm around his shoulder and say "I have a vision for the future and we're the rulers of this future, we're going to have a blast! HAHAHahaha"
>>42508677Think more creatively anon!> Dress up hostages as the Joker> Hide among them> Have the Bat try to pick us out> Blow people's heads off with pre-locked explosive collars as time ticks down
>>42508734why not implant them with explosives?Actually why not both, and then after he releases them and fixes the collar problem, the implant bombs still go off!Surprise surprise!
>>42508587>"Great! Now, every month I want you to give me a rundown on how we're doing in every department. Sales, public opinion, all that jazz, and crunch it all down into a simple letter grade. Dottie, you'll be doing a letter grade for our side of things. Obedience in the group, general mood, fear, how many get caught taking a bigger cut than they should, and you'll give me a letter grade. And, at the end of the month, I'll come up with a little something to show them both EXACTLY how I feel about their grades. Be honest now, Toppie. Dottie's gonna be grading you, too."
>>42508803I really like this
>>42508803Yes! This MAN, right here. This needs to be the submission!
>>42508803>>42508630Why are we so obsessed with the letter grade, again? The boss was running the thing yesterday, so I assume it wasn't awful.
>>42508834LSD bombs?LSD bombs
>>42508895That might be a bit too Scarecrow
>>42508895Actually, just joker-chem injectors would work.
>>42508865It runs on fear, it'll tell Gotham that we are willing to back off if things go well for us, it'll keep people the fuck in line when they have a goal to aspire to and they KNOW they're being judged on their performance.>>42508895Actually, this might work.We just send a letter to the news and call it 'Free Sample Day' after dumping a bunch of LSD into the water supply. It can be a 'Reward' for Gotham getting an A on their month.
>>42508951We can change out the reward each month.I claim 'Bring your pet to work day'. We raid a graveyard the night before and dump a bunch of human bones in a dog park.
>>42509045Nah, we want it to be something that can at least be spun as good, and maybe isn't too cheap on our end.Maybe leave pamphlets all over town telling people how to make their own pipe bomb.
>>42509098Nail bomb, more indiscriminate, more human suffering. It's IRA time boyo
>>42509124Swap out everyone's tax returns with letter bombs.
>>42509174No, not tax returns. Their tax forms, swap them out for letter bombs when they're in transit to the IRA.
>>42508587"Tell me Top Hat, what do you think about our gang's current finances? How's our income? Our expenses?""I think someone such as yourself might be better off leaving such things to those who understand them...Boss. The finances of an organization like ours can be quite complex; a snap decision could have dire consequences. I can tell you with great certainty, however, that the outlook quite dire.""...Right. Well, Top Hat, I have a vision for this town's future. You are vital to this organization, and I think you have a place in this future," you say."Of course. I have no question of my place in the future of this organization.""Then you should have no problem providing me with rundowns of each departments' financial outlook. I need incoming and outgoing expenses, income, and financial projections each month going forward. Dottie will be providing me with reports on personnel. Including yourself, of course."For the first time, you see his grin fall. He quickly composes himself. "Of course. Boss." The venom in the word is clear."Well, this has been...most informative, but now that I have paid my respects, I simply must get started on your reports. Boss." Top Hat turns his back to you and begins to leave.You interrupt him one last time. "One more thing, Topper. What did you think of our acting?"He turns back to you and smiles, showing teeth too perfect and straight for a simple gangster. "I think, unfortunately, that the three of you were miscast in your roles." He walks up the stairs into the darkness.(cont)
>>42509300>"An honest chap. Knows how to speak his mind without getting himself killed for it. I can see why the Old J kept him around."
>>42509300>I KNEW Dwayne should have been the nurse!>Anyways, any chance we could get an explosive chip or some bullshit implanted into his head? A fail safe would be nice.
>>42509404I'll second the Dwayne comment.
>>42509457SameDamn, captcha, that's the third or fourth time I've selected oranges.
>>42509404I'll third the Dwayne comment
>>42509404I second both of those things, I don't think we're going to be able to get this guy to like us so fear will probably have to do
>>42509300"Dick," says Dwayne. "Went better than I expected though. You've got him on his toes, boss. Otherwise he wouldn't have shown up.""I'll give Knock a call," says Dottie. "See what the street situation is like before I crash. You did good tonight, Boss. That was quick thinking. But just remember: the gangs all run through Knock, not me. You want your reports you need him on your side. Or..." She stops herself. "Alright, later." She hurries up the stairs."Well.." says Dwayne, "It's a start. One thing though, Boss... Could someone else go on TV next time"?What do you do now?>Ask questions to Dwayne (write in)>ask questions to Spike (write in)>Head to bed >begin preparing for tomorrow
>>42509538>>begin preparing for tomorrowPlan everything out. Everything
>>42509538>>begin preparing for tomorrowWe need pamphlets dwayne lots and lots of pamphlets.
>>42509538Dwayne, my friend, you've got a smile that needs the silver screen. But I will consider it if you can find yourself an understudy to replace you.
>>42509373Seconding this. It's good to be open-minded. And those who aren't open minded, well, We Can Change That.>>42509538>"Hey, Spike. Top Hat makes a move and Dottie doesn't catch it, I'll pay you to tell me. And not in money, if ya want something else. You game?">Ask Dwayne, "So, Dwayne, tell me about Bats. How does he normally operate? Is he gonna hunt me down for this or am I cool until I make a move?"
>>42509404This is beautiful. Pity it wasn't a vote.>>42509538>>begin preparing for tomorrowGet the preparation out of the way as soon as we can. We need our beauty sleep to face our adoring public.
>>42509538>begin preparing for tomorrow
>>42509607Seconding those questions.Also, prepare. Always, always prepare.
>>42509538>begin preparing for tomorrowThe show must go on
>>42509538>Begin preparing for tomorrow. We need pamphlets, Dwayne. How many printers do you think we can get running? Also, if you aren't gonna be my acting buddy, then congrats! You've been promoted to director! And also still actor if you can't find yourself a replacement. Oh, and Spike. I need you to make me a time bomb with a remote detonator, but the detonator needs to be an off switch, not an on switch.
The tv anon idea here, for the next idea it should be a game show and they will play deadly games like a race full of mines with cops vs traitors, thought?
>>42509923I like. But have the cops be dirty ones.
>>42509923We should call it Joker's Happy Hour.
>>42509538You head back into the studio. Spike is still sitting at the computer system. Though you aren't sure what he's doing with his strings of console commands, one of the six screens is clearly running a Matrix-inspired screensaver. Apparently Spike has been pretending to do more work than he actually does. The McDonalds cup is long since emptied, and the fat kid has since moved on to a case of Mountain Dew stored under the desk.You sign. At least it's green."Spike, I need you to keep tabs on Top Hat. If he even thinks about making a move I want to know about it. And if he tries to skip town, I want to know BEFORE. I'll get you whatever you whatever.""Word Big J. How about you have Big D go to the gates and grab my pizza? They should beep in in a few"This fat mother of fuck ordered pizza to your secret hideout. God DAMN."Alright, 'Big S'." The fat kid starts laughing like a maniac and goes back to whatever he was doing. You head back to the main area. "He ordered pizza again didn't he? You know they have a special pizza guy to drive out here? Have to pay him double." You nod to Dwayne wearily."Tell me about Batman. How does he operate? Will he be after me now?"Dwayne looks uncomfortable. "Truth be told, nobody knows how Bats operates. But he's always gonna be after you. Tonight, though? Nah. Aside from the broadcast, it was too much of a distributed attack. We'll check reports and see if he picked off any of the gang members, but I think we're safe. For now.""Good. We've got time to plan then. And this time we'll have more than a few hours."A buzzer sounds, and Dwayne sighs. As he heads to the gates to pick up the pizza, you head back to The Joker's...no, YOUR bedroom with a few sheets of paper, and begin planning.>Vote>it's time to design our next scheme.>How many days will we prepare?>What is our goal (Money? Visibility? Recruitment? Other?)>what do we plan to do?There will be another round of voting after these are chosen.
>>42510020>How many days will we prepare?A week or two.>What is our goal (Money? Visibility? Recruitment? Other?)Money.>what do we plan to do?I dunno.Jewelry store robberies?
>>42510020I like Joker's Happy Hour. You keep your ratings up, the fun stays minimal. You let them go down, the fun gets funner. Whatever you guys wanna do is fine with me.
>>42510020I vote money and visibility. Have two things going of at the same time but use one of them as a bait and distaction play. This will give more work to keep top hat busy, and will have thr added benefit of being a morale booster.
>>42509923>>42510020Eh, maybe. I'd be more on the line of an Anatomy game show. We take two homeless schmucks off the streets and have them guess what tissue is nailed to the wall. If they guess it right, we cut it out of their opponent. If they guess wrong, we cut it out of them. Winner is the last one breathing, and they get $2k for every question they get right. At the end, we say that 'You too can get a chance to earn this kinda sweet, sweet cash. If you're down on your luck, just remember, a smile can go a long way.'>Goal is Visibility/Recruitment.>Spend two weeks preparing. Setting up a room away from the hideout, getting the media jack hooked up there, all that. In the meantime, keep tabs on the other gangs. The homeless folks and the fresh tissue shouldn't be too much of an issue (that rhymed, we should use it.)
>>42510020We need to go LOUD. The Jokers back in town baby! Not even dear old Bats can put us down! But in order to properly assume the title of the Clown Prince of Crime, we need a little extra something. Something that will make the people scream out " oh dearie me, that horrible Jokers back in town! By my stars, whatever shall we do!?" The Boss need a wildcard up his sleeve, someone whose true loyalty to the Joker will never be in question. We need... Harley Quinn
>>42510131We haven't met Holly yet...
>>42510020I feel like the distributing nail bombs pamphlet might be a good idea.
>>42510131She was loyal to the old Joker she may not even want anything to do with us.
Harley is gone.been out of the gang for at least a year
>>42510020I want to save happy hour when one of our members decides to backstab us.>How many days will we prepare?A few days maybe a week>What is our goal (Money? Visibility? Recruitment? Other?)A warning>what do we plan to do?Track down any greatly influence anti jokers and strap joker bombs to them and command them to steal for us bring anything useful, maybe information of the bats or other gang leaders. While that happens inject joker venom to their love ones, shouldn't of messed with joker, right?
>>42510020>We'll need about two weeks to prepare.>Not just Nail Bomb Pamphlets, but 'Do it Yourself Nailbomb Kits!'. We leave these boxes at schools, hospitals, orphanages, playgrounds, along bike trails, all over the place. Some kid will get curious enough to try and make their own nailbomb using the materials we so generously provide, and many more will fuck it up in the process.>This'll give us Visibility and possibly a few recruits from kids that manage to pull it off and want to do more. "If you want to learn even more fun things you can do with stuff around the house, just go downtown and present one of the men in clown masks with this card! He'll help you get started."
>>42510224Thats fucking twisted and I love it
>>42510224And then we give clown masks lined with C4 to random civvies.
>>42510206Then we get her back! (same guy who suggested this in the first place btw) We pull a classic move and break her out of Arkham or off Deadshots sniper rifle, or wherever she is!
>>42510063>>42510078>>42510099>>42510100>>42510131>Prep time: 7 Days>Goals: Money/Visibility>Plan: Jewelry Store robberiesTwo concurrent plans will occur; one big, loud, and impressive, and the other quiet and focused on getting an influx of cash. >how will we break the plan down into tasks?>what materials will be required?>Who will handle each task? (Available: Dwayne, Knock, Dottie, and Spike. Normal gangers can also be assigned in place of or in addition to leaders.)Bonus points for theme.I will continue in this thread until page 11 before I start a new one.
>>42510249No no no, we have them go looking for our guys. Of course, if you want our recruiters to not necessarily be Knock's people, C4 masks can be arranged.
>>42510224I do second this if my Harley Quinn plan goes nowhere
>>42510261Fuck her we can find or make our own wildcard that's madly in love with us maybe twins.
>>42510274If this is desired it can be combined with>>42510224
>>42510261Point is, we don't know WHERE she is. Trust in the Harley, anon. She'll come riding back into town soon enough.>>42510224Problem with that is that you're giving Bats an easy route to get through to us, although if it's recruitment for pawns in our thug gallery, who won't know shit anyway, that's fine.
>>42510305Yes combine it!How long are you planning to run today?
>>42510289I like this idea
>>42510305Yes. It'll keep the Bat and cops even more distracted.
>>42510338Until I get tired. At least a few more hours.
>>42510305ALL MY YES.Just have the pamphlets say to blow the bombs on a certain date. We can steal a chopper and watch the chaos.I guess have Dottie sort through the flier business, and Knock or Dwarne do the secret shit.
>>42510366You should definitely make a twitter account
>>42510289I want Dottie as mai waifu
>>42510289Ahh but you're not looking at the big picture! Sure the Jokers back in town, but people still aren't sure. There will be rumors about us circulating, things that could ruin everything we've strived to build, build everything we've strived to ruin! And yes twin would be nice, but they lack some that every joker most surly needs: brand recognition! The minute we get Harley back on our side, then everything will fall into place, and no one will doubt that the Jokers back for good baby!
>>42510397Harley obviously superior, but I do like the eyepatch.
>>42510321We should have a chat with the Bat soon anyway.
TBH this seems more like Shadowrun than Batman
>>42510305YES! Instead of a loud plan, we can do that. Maybe set up an announcement that will draw police attention away. We'll put Dottie and Knock on the cash grab, try to keep the body count low so that cops aren't too distracted from the Kits, while Dwayne coordinates the distribution. We'll be helping Dwayne in that department, or if he feels he's got a handle on it, we'll make a public announcement about the kits. Spike and however many guys he wants are in charge of preparing the kits. It's about quantity, but it also needs to be a simple enough design so that a kid with a knack for explosives could conceivably pull it off.All the kids we recruit can be given tests by Spike if he wants to try finding some lab assistants. The rest go to knock as field techs in training.
>>42510404We'll make a new brand, a better brand with twins on each side one purple the other green. They will forget of old joker and remember the newer and improved one.
>>42510466This. Still supporting my steal a chopper and watch the chaos idea.
>>42510366Fair warning, we're about 30 posts into autosage, so the thread'll only last a few hours anyways.
>>42510466>Field techsSo, reverse ordnance disposal units, right?
>>42510224"The Jolly Little Joker's Explosive Fun Pack! Guaranteed fun for every kid, everywhere!"
>>42510567Pretty much, yeah. For those complex bombs that need to be put in multiple places at once. Someone to handle the nonsensical ordinance and chemicals correctly.
>>42510486Fair enough, but they'll never have that same fire, that delightful insanity with just a dash of Psychology major and a spoonful of forced Brooklyn accent! The twins may be nice, but they'll never beat out Harley (Sadistic laughter)
>>42510545I know. I don't want to make a new thread while the other one is this high in the catalog though
I feel like after we tell them this plan, we're going to have a real holyshitwhatamIdoing moment
>>42510612I have a better idea, we should get some dna from Harley and clone some twins our age, that would be perfect!
So, how soon will our first personal arkham visit be, anons? I'm thinking three or four months from now.
>>42510274Your plan: Over the next two weeks, we begin distributing Do-It-Yourself Nailbomb kits all over town. Each kit includes instructions, a flyer telling them to wait for further instructions on a designated day, enough materials for at least one or two nail bombs, and a Membership Card to take downtown to low-level gangsters as a recruitment vehicle.In two weeks' time, we will again send out another pirate broadcast, this time across all channels, telling all the Nail Bombers to set off their bombs in a public place - well away from the wealthier shop areas.While the bombs are set to go off, a quiet series of heists on jewelry stores occurs while the police are engaged in preventing the terrorist attacks.Dwayne is in charge of handling the distribution, while Knock and Dottie will handle the heists themselves. Spike is in charge of ordering the goods and managing the packaging. You look over your plan, feeling a mix of pride and shock with yourself. You're about to spend the next two weeks giving explosives to children. But, honestly, kids love fireworks, right? And if you get them into your gang, if you're smart, you can keep them safer than if they were in somebody ELSE'S gang, right? It's about ganging responsibly,Yeah, we can do that. You head to the shower, and hit the bed. Tomorrow you'll begin your first big plan as the Joker.
>>42510730Hmm, I'm honestly thinking we have as little as a week if, and that's a big IF, we go all in too quick, Bats will most likely come to push our shit over. And when he does, our chances of coming out of that encounter unscathed, much less actually WINNING, are pretty close to zero, considering who we're talking about, here.Oh, and I feel like this should be pretty obvious, but in the event that through some act of God, or some mad Nat 20's (if QM decides to use dice at any point) we manage to beat Batman, we really, really, REALLY, should think think twice before doing something like revealing his identity or killing him off. Why? Because there's a very real possibility that original Joker might come back, and if that's happens, he's gonna be super-duper fuckin' pissed if we kill off his raison d'etre. Then again, Joker might just kill us if/when he comes back just for shits and giggles, 'cause he's a dick like that.
>>42510673Oh boy! I hadn't thought of that! One smart, the other mad! The possibilities are endless! And if Harley 1.0 were to show up, why it'd be a foursome of perfect lunacy! (assuming she didn't kill us all of course)
>>42510855Let's send the plan to tops as well. Just to make sure we can come out of this with a gain. I mean, I'm sure we can, the materials should be on the cheap side, but still, he might not be so pissy if we keep him in the loop like this.
>>42510908Of course we won't kill or reveal batman. But we don't have to let HIM know that. If we position ourself well, then we won't have a problem.But knowing Batman, we'll have a problem, one way or another.
>>42510969I say we don't reveal him to the public.We take his mask off in public, and find out exactly who he is.After that, we've got serious shit on the guy. Friends, family, financing, equipper, we'll be able to run him into the ground in an enormous show of futility.And that's iff we capture the guy. I mean, let's be honest: he doesn't have plot armor. He has a plot APC.
>>42511070>his mask off in publicShit, meant private.
>>42511070On the day of their parents death we will do everything we can to make him miserable like doing a fundraiser and blowing it up, airing movies or shows about kids being turning orphans, or drop hundreds of flyers or their parents or saying "what did you do to stop it?"
>>42510855The next day, Dottie and Dwayne come back to your private office. They seem a bit uncomfortable in the Joker's private quarters, but you couldn't risk being in the common area out of costume.You explain your plan to them. They share a glance, then look over your notes some more. "This...certainly seems like a plan of the old boss. I'll give you that, kid." says Dwayne."And the best part is, nobody really has to get hurt!"That shared glance again."I mean, we could tone down the explosives if we have to, right? It's just about scaring the cops!"And again."Alright chief," says Dwayne, "but we've got one hurdle. Top Hat controls the funds."Dottie pitches in, "I can see if Spike can weasel an order out of some hardware stores. You'd be surprised what the kid can pull off over a phone. He'd be a hell of a conman if you got him from behind a computer and cut him in half,""Great, so it's settled. We get to work right away.""AFTER we dye your hair, chief.">what color do they dye our hair? (It may seem inconsequential, but hey, we're building a character!)
>>42511203Green, of course. Gotta go with the classics.
>>42511178>prank call his house every few days>very politely ask to speak to Bruce, using a voice modulator>YOUR PARENTS ARE DEEEEEEEEAD!
>>42511203Blue or purple, I go with blue to make it stand out.
>>42511203Hot pink. Gotta get that flair.
>>42511203Blue or red
>>42511203> Toning down explosivesWhat are you, Superman?Just fill half of them with confetti instead. Completely no fun, though.Green hair. Let's go with neon, though. Or glow in the dark. Or both.
>>42511228>>42511229>>42511232>>42511256>>42511257>two greens>two purples>one hot pink
>>42511203Acid green on top, electric blue sides.
>>42511232Oh man, I lost it.>He always responds with>"MY PARENTS ARE DEEEEEHEHEHEEEEAD." sobbingAlso, Blue really clashes our look.
Green it is. Writing
You pick through Dottie's sack of hair dye, and pull out a Neon Green. One thing about this Joker gang: they're never want for cosmetics.Sitting in the bathroom, Dottie has you rub the conditioner into your hair as she mixes the neon liquid. As she squirts lines of it from the applicator, her cigarette hangs dangerously close to your face."I could never use this color," she says, the cigarette clenched between her lips. "My hair's too dark. I've gotta use that darker green. You're lucky your hair's blonde. It'll take just about any color." She laughs. "'Course we coulda just shaved it and got you a wig."She has you comb the color, and you wait a while, the stinging chemicals burning your scalp. When you're finally able to wash out the color, you look at yourself in the mirror. Neon green hair. Your parents would be proud.
>>42511521Our dad is the joker QM confirmed.
>>42511615IIRC Harley actually had a kid and she didn't let him be a part of the whole criminal thing, trying to be a normal mom and occasionally taking 'Extended business trips' while her kid stayed with her sister.
You know when you'll run again, QM?
>>42511677Huh, the more you know.
>>42511521You put on your makeup and outfit, and the two clowns look you over. You pass. Finally you look like a proper Joker. You throw your hat back on and head back to the main quarters. The twins are back in their normal spot, except they've got a few grocery baskets full of candy in front of them."The boys decided to go shopping during the riots last night," says Dwayne. He gives them a glare "You guys are gonna make yourselves sick if you keep it up." You begin work on your plan. Dottie calls in Spike to begin ordering, while you and Dwayne go over a map planning out distribution methods.Within a couple days the loading dock for trucks near the back of the park has been converted into a makeshift distribution center, with a few of Knock's crews packaging the Kits and cars driving in and out, picking up boxes of kits and delivering them all over the city. Spike is overseeing the shipping from a small office he cleared out and had a computer brought to.A few days into distribution, Knock finally approaches you in private."Alright new guy, I see you got plans. Big and fancy, just like before. The boys don't see the difference, and they're content. As long as they've got orders they're happy.""But me? Nah man, I gotta watch out for me. Now you got us knocking over jewelry stores while you're threatening to blow up half the city. So I gotta ask myself, why threaten so big and act so small? How does this help the gang? Cuz we gotta flip these diamonds afterwards, and flipping hot stuff like this ain't easy.""I know you got problems with Top Hat, and Top Hat always handled fencing. What's keepin' me from taking my boys and going straight to Topper?" >what do you do?
>>42511737After I finish the next thread, tomorrow night probably.
>>42511854Shoot him in the face
>>42511854"Well you wouldn't be our star guest for my next show I'm thinking about, it'll surely stop you in your tracks. Hahahah, but if you need more convincing thinking about whose bad side you want to be."
>>42511854Careful with that, if I didn't know better, I'd think you were being insubordinate.Now, tell me. What would the old boss do with an insubordinate officer?Cause, I think I've got a pretty good idea.
>>42511854"Because you can't run this gang on your own. The masks, the money, the planning, all that, it means nothing without someone to wear the makeup and do the laughs. People just wouldn't respect you if you didn't have Joker behind you. As for Tops, you let me worry about him. When he tries to shaft me by taking too big a cut from this one, and you know he will when I ask him to fence things, I'll be putting him in his place. Same goes for you, of course. And Dottie, and Dwayne, and Spike."
>>42511854> "Knock...you should know better. Baby steps, my friend. The smaller the steal, the bigger the diversion, the easier it will be. Now, understand, Knock, that Joker picked me. Do you know why he picked me? Well?"Fiddle with acid flower on coat, but no shooty.
I know Knocker is a dickhead but shouldn't we actually try to get him on our side? He has all the regular guys under him.
>>42511981Of course, we just gotta put him in his place. He doesn't respect us yet.
>>42511972>Do you know why he picked me? Well?>No seriously, do you know? Because I sure as hell don't.
>>42511968Are Dotty, Dwayne, and Spike looking like they'll betray us?
>>42512002No, but Knock needs to know that just because they're on our good side now doesn't mean we won't pull out the thumb screws if they try fucking us. Which is true, honestly.
>>42511981Respect is built based on many things.For the joker, it's pretty clearly fear. It's best to give him what he's already conditioned to.
>>42511972>>42511998If we're gonna do mine, at least include bits about Toppie shafting them from >>42511968 because that's 100% true
>>42512035I, personally, would be alright with Dotty trying to fuck us.
Page 9Is the thread archived?
>>42512162You want to do it?
>>42511854"You can't run the gang on your own. You or Topper. You said it youself: the boys want somebody at the top telling them to cause chaos. If they weren't after something more than being just another banger they wouldn't be dressed as a clown in an abandoned amusement park distributing nail bombs to children.You run off to Topper and you'll have a band of psychopaths sitting around with itchy trigger fingers. You think you can keep control of that without having me as an outlet?Look at yourself. Look what you're wearing. You put that on and people are scared of you. Because it means something. It means me.The threat assures the crime is an easy one, and the jewels offer a high payoff. More importantly it keeps the boys happy. Do you know why your old boss picked me? Well?Because I sure as hell don't. But I'm going to do what I have to do, and I'm not going to let anyone stand in my way. You let me worry about Topper. I won't permit insubordination in my gang. From any of you.Is that understood?" You glare at him.Knock tries to hold himself up, but he's clearly shaken by your speech. He didn't expect you to come down on him like you did."Yeah...Understood." He returns to his work.
>>42512077I won't have you talking shit about my one eyefuShe's loyal and pure
>>42512262Anon she could be the bicycle for all we know.
>>42512286Read Dwayne's comments. Holly is clearly the slutDotty hides a soft interior under her hard exterior
>>42512077We can get distracted with her, we need to focus on how to get a DNA sample from Harley to clone two gorgeous twins that would instantly start around our age.
