In the year 1986, crime in the United States is at an all-time high. Criminals, drugs, and guns flow into and out of the country from everywhere in the world, and the gateway to it all is the coastal paradise, Heat City. On the neon-soaked streets of this beating heart of scum and villany, you can get whatever you want -- if you can pay the price.You are Johnny the thug, a man who lives by his fists first, and his wits second. Ever since you agreed to take one little job for the Bratva, your life has been turned upside-down and shaken violently. One thing led to another as you made enemies of one half of the city's underworld, and then the other half. With the help of some new friends, you went all-in and led a daring heist on the Triad's skyscraper fortress, Dragon's Nest.It went great until you got shot and fell off the roof.Twenty-five stories down.You didn't expect to wake up after that. But here you are, in some kind of hospital bed. Unfortunately, that's turning out to be a whole new problem. The ways things are going for you, maybe you should have expected that.

Definitely not as popular as Overwatch Quest, but I won't leave my thug bros hanging.If you're new, Thug Quest combines the violent 1980s aesthetic of Drive and Hotline Miami with larger-than-life crime thrillers like Max Payne and Sin City. Hope you enjoy the ride.
You woke up, in pain but alive, finding yourself tied up on a bare-bones medical bed in a dingy, badly-lit room. The crazy tattooed girl you met a few nights ago was here. She claimed you're in a laboratory run by the Triads, a testing ground for the drug "Z" that fuels their profits. She started to free you, but before she could get far, the door started to open.The girl ducks out of sight, behind the door. A person in a yellow hazard suit enters the room. He walks in your direction, face barely visible behind the reflective glass faceplate. From a pouch at his side he withdraws a syringe. He holds it up as he flicks the tip of the needle, and you can see the barrel is filled with a dark violet liquid. Z.You have one hand free from the restraints. Your other limbs are tied down. You hurt a lot, but you think you can move okay.>Grab the man by the throat when he approaches.>Indicate to the girl she should hit him from behind.>Ask the man where you are.>Stay quiet and let him inject you.>Something else.
>>1031223>>Grab the man by the throat when he approaches.>Indicate to the girl she should hit him from behind.
>>1031208Hey, long time. And here I thought you were giving up on this just to hang out with the cool kids.>>1031223>Ask the man where you are.>Indicate to the girl she should hit him from behind.Distract him from our new friend, while she finds an empty syringe to jab into his neck.
>>1031249>>1031254"W-where am I?" you manage to croak out as the man approaches.He steps back in shock. "You're not supposed to be awake," he says, his voice muffled by his gas mask.You catch the girl's eyes, then twitch your eyes towards the man in the hazard suit a few times. She nods.You say, "Just tell me where I am, pal.""You're in hell," the man mutters. He steps forward with his syringe. "And it's only going to get worse. Now hold still while--"You reach out with your free hand and grab him by the throat. The material of the hazmat suit is thick and rubbery, but your powerful fingers still find the man's scrawny neck underneath. "I don't think so.""Gakk -- you don't -- please--"The tattooed girl steps up. "Remember me?" she asks the man, grinning. She smashes his mask's faceplate with her fist, then stabs an empty syringe into the man's eye. You let go and he drops to the ground, muffled screams coming from under his mask."Brutal," you say.The girl steps forward and finishes undoing your restrains. "I'm Roxie, by the way. Guys at the fight club call me Red Cat.""All right ...">Roxie>Red Cat>You crazy bitch>Something else
>>1031327>>Roxieshe seems like a special brand of crazy which is what we need

>>1031332>>1031333>>1031341>>1031344"... Roxie." She says, "Done. Let's see if you can move."You slowly pushing yourself into a sitting position, then off the hospital bed and onto your feet, groaning. Everything feels like shattered glass. One of your legs is probably broken. Definitely some of your ribs. You're probably still missing a lot of blood. None of that matters. You'll have time to hurt and feel sorry for yourself later."How'd they get you?" you say, rubbing your wrists to get some circulation back."I was hanging out with some hobos around a barrel fire," Roxie says. "Black van pulled up, assholes jumped out. I got two of them, but the third one tased me. What about you?""Fell off a building," you grunt."Damn. I guess you win. This dumbshit left the door open," she adds, moving to the door and taking a peek outside. "There's a hallway with some more doors like this one. A couple more of those assholes in hazmats. What do you want to do?">Go Aggro: Go out there and beat the shit out of them.>Cautious: Stay hidden as much as possible.>Observant: Try to find out more about this place.

>>1031371>>1031377>>1031379You stay cautious and try to remain hidden. Roll a d10 to see how you do.

Rolled 6 (1d10)>>1031397
>>1031401>>1031404>>1031408You make more noise than you intended, struggling to hobble out into the dingy hallway. "What was that?" asks one of the hazmats. He turns in your direction, but you throw yourself behind a stack of old storage crates just in time. Roxie ducks into an open against the left wall.The other hazmat says, "You'd better get used to the noises if you want to keep working here."The first hazmat stares in your direction for a few seconds. "I thought I heard something--" he takes a step forward, then stops and turns back. "Never mind. How many more you got?""Five. We can break for lunch early if you want, though. These poor fools aren't going anyway."You take the opportunity to join Roxie. She says, "Check it out. Heavy doors, like the one from our room."You can hear movement behind one of them, and the sound of a person talking.>Let's try and get a set of keys, open this up.>Listen carefully at the door.>Forget it. We gotta look after ourselves.>Something else.

>>1031465>>1031469"I'm not sure ..." You edge closer to the door and put your ear close to it, listening carefully. You can just make out what the person inside is saying."I think I fell ... I fell, I am fallen, I am the fallen angel, I feed, I feast on the blood ... arrrRRARGH!" Something slams against the door from the inside, something about the size and momentum of a human body hurling itself against it.>Maybe not.>Open it anyway. Could be a useful distraction.
>>1031492>>Open it anyway. Could be a useful distraction.fuck it
>>1031492>>Maybe not.I'd be up for it if we hadn't voted cautious.So, i can't be the only one that wants roxxie for our thug

>>1031492>Open it anyway. Could be a useful distraction.Fuck these guys
Soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63Gsh2gemDg"I'm gonna open it," you say. "He might be a useful distraction." You grabbed that hazmat guy's keys along with his syringe. It takes you a few tries, but you get the heavy door open.Inside is a man with the sick, wasted look of a junkie. His nose is bleeding. He struggles to focus bloodshot eyes. Yikes, you think. You and Roxie stay well back of the door, holding your breath. The junkie staggers past you, oblivious, and out into the hallway.Another guy in a yellow hazmat suit is walking past at that moment. "What the fuuuuAAAAHHH!" He screams at the junkie charges him and knocks him down to the ground. "Help me oh fuck no--" The junkie grabs the man's head and slams it back on the cold concrete floor, a second time, a third time."Jesus," you say. "Let's get out of here."You and Roxie slip past the carnage. The two of you duck into another side hall when the two hazmats from earlier come running back. "Holy shit-!" "Subject is loose-!" When they pass, you retrace their steps. You glance back over your shoulder to see the junkie tackling one of them, and the other pulling out some kind of baton.The dirty hallway comes to a T intersection. To your left is a plastic sheeting door, and behind it, a large room with machines, and some kind of strange sound. Bubbling? To your right is a closed door with a flickering light coming from underneath. You can hear voices inside.>Go left>Go right>Go back
>>1031565>>Go rightmaybe we can break something important?
>>1031208Oh shit motherfucker my favorite quest is back!
You walk through the door on the right, thinking, maybe I can break something important.Instead, you find three Triad thugs in black t-shirts, muscled arms thick with tattoos. They're lounging on sofas, smoking cigarettes, drinking cheap rice beer, and watching Zaltron on a television in the corner.When the thugs see who's come through the door, they stand up. Taller than you expected. The one in the middle takes the cigarette out of his mouth. "Gweilo," he says. "You supposed to be taking a nap. You have a bad dream? Need someone to tuck you in?" His two friends laugh.>Punch him.>Look for a weapon.>"I don't suppose we could all just watch Zaltron?">Something else.
>>1031620>>Look for a weapon.
>>1031620>>Look for a weapon.>>"I don't suppose we could all just watch Zaltron?"
>>1031620>Look for a weapon
>>1031628>>1031634You look around for a weapon. "I don't suppose we could all just watch Zaltron?" you ask the thugs, trying to stall for time.The one on the right cracks his knuckles. The one on the left pulls a knife out from his belt."Guess not," you say.On TV, the red space guy is running down a dark hall. "I must escape from the evil sorcerer's tower," he says. "But my power has been drained! If only I could find something to fight with!"There's a fire extinguisher on the wall, and a heavy stool sitting next to you by a card table. Or, of course, you could just take that guy's knife.Choose a weapon and roll d10.>Fire extinguisher>Stool>Knife

Rolled 8 (1d10)>>1031670Second
>>1031670>>1031673>>1031691You snatch up the stool by your feet. The big guy on the right and knife guy on the left both come for you at the same time. Knife guy lets out a high-pitched cackle, like a hyena. He licks the blade of his knife. Big guy is all business, slowly moving forward with his fists ready. He's got the weatherbeaten look of someone who's done this plenty of times before.That still doesn't prepare him for Roxie front kicking him in the knee. It breaks with a sickening crack. The big guy stumbles down, tries to hold himself up on one leg and his hands, but Roxie steps forward, grabs his head in both hands, and savagely knees him in the face. He flops backward with blood spraying from his nose.Knife guy steps at you and cuts, but with a swing of the heavy stool you knock the knife out of his hands. You slam the seat into his chest, then his face, and he falls over. You stand over him and deliver a finishing blow. Blood splatters on the concrete floor.The final Triad thug lunges at you to swing a punch, but Roxie grabs his arm from behind. You punch the feet of the stool into his stomach. Roxie lets him go, and as he doubles over in pain, you smash the seat down into the back of his head. He drops.You're breathing heavily. Your body is barely functioning. But adrenaline is keeping you going. You feel something wet on your face and touch it. Blood."Their blood, not yours," says Roxie. "You know, when I met you in the bar, I figured you were a badass. Guess I was right.">Thanks.>You're pretty hardcore yourself.>Let's keep moving. I can't afford to slow down.>Something else.
>>1031707>Thanks.>Let's keep moving. I can't afford to slow down.>grab the knife
>>1031713>>1031719>>1031724"Thanks," you grunt. You hobble over to the fallen knife and pick it up. "Let's keep moving. I can't afford to slow down.""Just a second," says Roxie, digging in the pockets of a jacket draped over a chair. The big guy on the floor groans. She kicks him in the ribs.You move to the other door, open it carefully, look outside. Another dirty concrete hallway. You can see a Triad thug talking to one of the hazmat guys. "That doesn't matter," he says. "The Dragon wants it done. Make it happen. Earth is here in case of any fuck-ups. If he gets out, Earth will pulverize him. And then he'll probably kill ya for fucking up. So don't. Got it?"Roxie appears beside you, lit cigarette clamped between her teeth. "Found his smokes."You say ...>"Give me one of those.">"Stay focused."And then ...>Charge them.>Throw the knife.>Wait for an opportunity.>Something else.
>>1031751>Stay focused>Roxie take out the thug>We capture Hazmat guy and interrogate him
>>1031751>>"Give me one of those."Everyone looks cooler with a smoke hanging out their mouth, and rule of cool gives you power.>>Wait for an opportunity.

>>1031759>>1031763>>1031770>>1031778"Stay focused," you say. "But, er ... since you've already got them, give me one of those."Roxie sticks a second cigarette in her mouth, lights it, inhales on both of them, then takes out the second one and sticks it neatly between your lips. She grins impishly.You shake your head at her, take a drag, and go back to watching the hallway, waiting for an opportunity. Soon the hazmat guy walks away, while the gangster starts down the hallway in your direction. Could be coming to this room.>Slit his throat>Grab him and interrogate him (requires d10)

Doing it the fast way for now, nbd. >>1031799Right as the Triad gangster walks inside, you grab him with your big fists and drag him to the ground. Roxie clamps a hand over his mouth. You pin him down with one arm, and with the other you hold the knife maybe an inch front of his eyeball."Heya pal," you say. "I got some questions for ya. Give me some answers I like, and you might even live."He nods frantically.Choose 2:>What's the best way out of here?>Where are your friends?>What's vulnerable to me?>What is Earth's weapon or skill?>Who's in control of all this?

>>1031850>>1031852"What's the best way out of here?" you demand."Th-th-through the lab," he gasps, staring at the knife point. "Back door. For deliveries.""Where is that?"He points, his hand shaking. "Down there. T-t-turn left.""Where are your friends?""Uhhh--" He looks at the other three gangsters sprawled on the floor."The other ones. Any more of you thugs? Or those hazmat guys?""In the lab. Workers. B-b-but that's still the best way."You shove the knife a little closer. "How is that the best way out, then, if it's full of people?""The other way takes you past Earth! You don't want to mess with that guy, he will fuck you up! You want to go out the lab. Just don't kill me, man, I answered your questions, please don't kill me please--">Kill him>Let him live

>>1031900>>1031904>>1031906>>1031913You cut his carotid and windpipe with one efficient slice. Bright red blood spurts from the wound and out of his mouth. You drop him to the floor and leave him to silently choke to death on his own blood.You wipe off the knife, step over the body, and move out into the hallway."That was ice cold, man," says Roxie, following you. "I like it.""Fuck him.""I know, right? Did he actually think he was gonna make it out?"You grip the knife in your hand. The feeling of holding a weapon gives you something to focus on other than the pain.To your left is a storage area, and beyond it another one of those plastic sheet doors. That must be the lab the guy was talking about.Ahead of you is a hallway, badly lit with flickering bare light bulbs. Earth must be that way.>Go left, to the lab.>Go forward. Fuck this guy too.>Something else.
>>1031930>Go left, to the lab.Trash it.

>>1031930>>Go left, to the lab.trash it ,rob it, burn it to the ground
>>1031930>>Go left, to the lab.
You go left, towards the laboratory.You stagger a little as you walk. Your leg is not doing good. Your head is not doing good. Nothing is doing good. You hate this place. You hate the Triads. Fuck them all.Fuck this place. Trash it. Rob it. Burn it."Hell yeah," says Roxie."What?""What you said, you know, trash it--""Yeah, right, okay." You didn't realize you were talking out loud. Your head throbs. It's not easy to see straight. Where are you again? Right. The lab. The Triad lab, full of these fucking assholes--You push through the plastic sheet.Soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMfnMU0pZrkInside is a room that deserves the title of laboratory. Maybe more. Huge steel machines you couldn't even begin to name. Tanks of liquid and gas. Cooling racks, heaters, sinks. And six of these fucking assholes.Two guys in green hazmats. Two in yellow. And two of the black t-shirt thugs.They all turn towards you. "What the fuck?" "Who is that--" "We have to--"One of the gangsters takes out a pistol from his belt."Hey now," says one of the green hazmats to the gangster. "Don't do anything stupid, this equipment is sensitive--"Choose 2:>Throw the knife at someone>Close the distance to someone>Protect yourself or someone else from harm.

>>1032004One of the main reasons the Discord was set up is because of a playlist I had the misfortune of cobbling together. I couldn't be assed to visit since the first day and I was just curious as to what transpired. Also the list needs more Jamiroquai.
>>1032007Of topic bruh. Take it back to the other thread
>>1032011No need to worry, I'm here to play in the quest, not bitch about music choices.
Before anyone can react, you throw the knife at the pistol-wielding gangster. He dodges, the knife whistling past where his head was. But that gives you all the time you need to close the distance to him before he can take aim. You grab his pistol hand with your left and force it upwards. Shots ring out, incredibly loud close up, but the bullets hit the ceiling."Shut the fuck up!" you shout, punching the gangster in the face with your right hand, keeping hold of him with your left. "I'm pretty sure--" Punch. "I have a concussion--" Punch. "So I don't need--" Punch. "--these loud NOISES!" You wrench the pistol out of his hand and let him go, and he sinks to the ground, his face a bloody mess.Roxie pummels one of the yellow hazmat suit lab workers. She knocks him down, plants a knee on his chest, and finishes him with a brutal hook punch to the face.The other Triad gangster has grabbed a fire extinguisher off the wall. He steps up behind her and cracks her across the back with it. She cries out in pain, scrambles away, pushes herself back up to her feet. She and the gangster face off warily."Let's use the hydroxolene," says one of the green suits to the other.The second one protests, "But that's highly--""Just do it!" They both grab nearby containers of a foul-looking chemical and prepare to throw them at you.Choose 2, plus 1 extra for if you roll 9+. You can choose the same one multiple times.>Shoot someone>Close the distance to someone>Protect Roxie>Protect yourself

Blam! Before the green suits can even begin a throwing motion, you shoot the first one in the face. His gas mask shatters, and you see fragments of his brain splatter on the wall behind him. His lifeless body crumples.The second green suit panics. Without hesitating you aim and fire a second shot, blasting him in the face too. The bullet hits a chemical jar on the wall that begins to leak a strange-smelling fluid. The green-suited worker takes a few slow steps, his mask a jagged mess of glass and blood, then falls over. You look over at Roxie just as she wrestles the fire extinguisher away from the gangster and clocks him in the chin with it. He goes down. You walk over and coldly execute him on the ground.Roxie looks at you with a fire in her eyes. "Nice shooting, cowboy." She licks her lips and grins. Is she getting turned on by this? Jesus.You look around. All the assholes are dead or bloodied. The containers those two green suits were carrying spilled some kind of toxic-looking shit on the ground. If you don't go near those fumes you should be fine."You all right, Roxie? I saw you take a shot there.""I'm good. Walking it off." She stretches, and you hear the click of once-broken bones, familiar from your own body.Ahead of you is a service doorway. This must lead to the delivery exit that guy was talking about.>Let's get out of here while we have a chance.>Let's fuck this place up.>Roxie, you get out of here. I have something I need to do.>Something else.

>>1032060>Let's fuck this place up.Again, fuck these guys.>>1032061That actually sounds like it'd be pretty damn good if done well. How'd he handle dialogue and action sequences though?
>>1032060Uh, Raven, I think you missed a guy. Six guys (two green suits, two yellow suits, two thugs). Five takedowns (two green suits, one yellow suit, two thugs). The room isn't clear yet. That said:>Let's get out of here while we have a chance.We can come back later or something. If we stick around, we're going to run into Earth. And we're not equipped to fight Earth right now.
>>1032065couldn't we just shoot him?
>>1032065Right, I forgot that part. In the middle, there's supposed to be a sentence about the last yellow suit guy freaking out and running away, and you shooting him the back.
>>1032064>How'd he handle dialogue and action sequences though?excellentlyas the quest goes on the MC actrally eveloves in how he speaks he goes from pausing a few times and getting his courage to keep to speaking to leading a collective of groups
>>1032067I don't think so, no>>1032068Right, right. I thought for a second you were going to pull an 'in the chaos he managed to hide, and now he's got a gun!' or something on us.
>>1032060>Get out of hereWe are injured outnumbered and outgunned. Not taking any chances
>>1032072It sounds like he actually did decent character progression, which is kinda rare in quests. Any reason why he just left? It sounds like the quest was progressing nicely.
>>1032077he had some health problems he was working through but when /qst/ was made he said fuck it and stopped running
>>1032078That's sad as fuck.
>>1032080it isbut HMQ is the standard to which good quest are compared to now
>>1032081The way it's talked about, it sounds like it's required reading for QM's or something. Either way, this just confirms I should read it when I get a chance.
>>1032063>>1032065>>1032074"Let's get out of here," you say. "No sense taking chances. We can get revenge and burn this place down later.""Yeah ... I guess that makes sense. Okay. Leaving now, burning later. Yes. Let's do it."The two of you go through the service door into a long hallway. You start walking. "Where do you think we are in the city?" you ask."No idea," she says. "They kicked the shit out of me in that van, so ... wasn't really paying attention to street names."You approach the end of the hallway, a T-intersection. A sign pointing to the right says reads "Delivery"."Okay," you say. "Almost there--"And three Triads step out from the left hall. They have submachine guns."For fuck's sake," you say. "Why can't anything ever be easy?"You are heavily injured and outgunned. There is no cover.>Shoot them>Charge them>Raise your hands in surrender
>>1032087>>Shoot themcan they just fuck off already I mean Jesus Christ man
>>1032087>Raise your hands in surrenderSo much for looking cool in front of girls
>>1032085their are some fun quests but very few can say they are great HMQ wasn't just fun you had emotional highs and lows and twists that changed every thing
>>1032087>Raise your hand in surrender. Unless Johhny is a cowboy with unreal quickdraw speed. There's no way we can take them on. Best chance is to surrender drawn them in and then grapple them
>>1032092Now that sounds like something to strive for. Back to the quest at hand though.
>>1032096>Back to the quest at hand though.agreed
>>1032091>>1032095You'd like to shoot them. But despite Roxie's nickname for you, you're not actually a cowboy, and you don't have superhuman quickdraw speed.So much for looking cool in front of girls. "All right," you say, raising your hands. "We surrender--"Blam! You hear the sound of automatic gunfire, see the brightness of muzzle flashes. You close your eyes, trying not to flinch, to accept your fate like a man--And nothing happens.You're fine?You open your eyes. The Triads lie on the ground, riddled with bullets. Dead.When you think about it, that gun that was just firing sounded familiar.Stepping out from around the right corner is --
>>1032087>Raise your hands in surrenderOh for the love of Zaltron... this isn't a gunfight that we win. Hope they get dumb and get close to us, I guess. It's the only way I see us not dying.
"Alex!" You feel a stupid grin spreading across your face."Hey, tough guy." Alex swaggers in, carrying her H&K. "I heard you might be in a tough spot. Looks like I showed up just in time." She shoulders her weapon, grins back at you.>Hug her>Kiss her>Just a firm handshake
>>1032102>fist bumpCool guys do fist bumps, right?
>>1032102>Hug herThink about the second one, though. At least a little bit
>>1032102>>Kiss herkisses for everyone
>>1032102>>Hug herAlthough the second one would be nice...
You cross the distance without thinking about it and grab Alex up in your arms. It's the first time you've properly touched her like this. She seems surprised, maybe because her feet leave the ground for a moment. But after you set her back down she returns the gesture, and you feel her slim but muscular arms pass around your waist and tighten. "Take it easy, Johnny," she says, laughing a little, and pats you on the back. "You're okay now.""Alex," you say, stepping back. "Jesus. You came for me.""Of course I did, you big dummy. You'd do the same for me, right?"Roxie edges closer to you, an oddly possessive gesture. "Who's your friend?""Oh, uh, Roxie, this is Alex, a friend of mine. Alex, this is Roxie, she helped me escape--"The two girls meet eyes. Their expressions stay neutral. But it feels like the temperature in the room drops several degrees."Roxie," says Alex. "Nice to meet you.""Alex," says Roxie.Uh oh.Oh man.Maybe you should have taken your chances with the Triads.
>>1032102Awkwardly fall on her because broken leg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEPBefYxfWsDone for tonight. Thanks for playing Thug Quest, anons. Hope you enjoyed it.
>>1032115thanks for running
>>1032115Thanks for running
>>1032115Thanks for running boss(also waifu wars)
>>1032115Thanks for running, Raven. Good fun, even if I got here late.
>>1032115Thanks as always for running Raven.I apologize for going on a bit of a tangent like that earlier.Is there gonna be a rivalry going on between the girls now?
>>1032123Could be, sir, could be. Gun waifu vs fist waifu, who would you like to see win?
>>1032126I'm into fighter chicks honestly. My preference really only lies with whoever has abs though.
>>1032126Johnnyalso How salty are the triads right now
>>1032126While there is certainly a bit of first girl bias, I'm currently in favour of Alex. I might change when we get to see more of Roxie.We're not so different to Roxie, either. Didn't we get the urge to have sex with Alex after she caused a huge explosion/killed a bunch of people?
>>1032128They're both pretty shredded.
>>1032129pic>>1032131She's probably a bad influence on you. And you might enjoy it.
>>1032133Roxie is my pick for now then. I hope she does some cool ass shit.
>>1032135>pickek>>1032133I know this isn't OWQ butreal talk tho has the MC and Her come across one another before
>>1032126Don`t care about waifu shitBut I am glad Thug Quest is backThank`s man
>>1032137If by "her" you mean Alex, then yes, she's one of the main characters. If you mean Pharah, then no, she won't be born for another eighty years.>>1032142Don't worry anon, that won't be a huge part of this quest. Just a fun way to end the chapter. Glad you're enjoying it.
>>1032147Will we get a prequel campaign of Johhny's time in Vietnam. Seems like it might be interesting.
>>1032157A flashback chapter or two is definitely possible.
>>1032126roxieIf other quests didn't go for first girl like idiots all the time alex might look pretty good.
>>1032541>this antagonism against first girli completely understand that there's that distaste toward first girl, i have it myself. But that said, I think Alex is the better choice; you really think Z-head Roxie is gonna be okay on our ranch in Montana? Alex is long-game, though I'll readily admit that Roxie has appeal for some crazy post-bloodshed banging
>>1032551do we even know if alex is ok with it though? shes like a globe trotting mercenary right, does she want to settle down and be a rancher?
>>1032841Honestly, I'm not even sure about the whole rancher thing. The Private Eye dream Johnny had interested me more.
>>1032841No, you're right, we don't really know 100%. But i definitely think it's what Johnny's endgame could be, as opposed to >>1033004 private eye Johnny. And i think if that's the endgame, Alex would be more likely to be open to it then Roxie, don't you agree?
>>1032551The hell you talking about? Alex isn't first girl
So is there an archive of the previous quests anywhere? Need to read those.
>>1033295Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Thug%20Quest
>>1033450Just finished binging this quest. Thank you Raven for making not one but two good qst originals.
>>1033450Thanks man. Can't wait to bust through the previous entries.
>>1033196Oh shit you're right. First girl is Lucy. Very first post of the first thread had Lucy.
>>1033475I got confused when I read about people having a bias against first girl. Wasn't that exactly what made people drive away Lucy? (Also, I prefer Alex. She can kick ass and is less likely to cut our dick off in a drug-addled psychosis.)
Lucy was the girl that had absolutely no chance at winning from the very start.Also, no one wanted to fuck her up with our criminal shit. Shed probably have ended up kidnapped and shot by the triads while johnny watched.
Hey Raven, did we ever settle on an appearance for Johnny? Like who he might have similar features to, outstanding physical characteristics, colors and shit, etc...
>>1038085I think we settled for him to look like Marv from Sin City.
Johnny's a big guy with short hair, a bent nose, and a lot of scars. I could describe him further, but I don't want to "freeze out" anyone's mental image. I think it's okay for everyone to have their own idea of what he looks like. We are all Johnny, and he is all of us.The original idea was something in between Marv and Hartigan from Sin City.
>>1038140>>1038142Good to know. Thinking about it, that does sound like it fits all things considered.
