In a time of global crisis, the elite international task force Overwatch formed. Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities: together, they ended the Omnic Crisis and restored peace to a war-torn world. For a generation, the heroes of Overwatch protected the world, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. After many years, Overwatch became troubled, and finally disbanded. Without them, world conflict and terror rose again. Governments weakened by strife ceded power to mega-corporations and private security forces. Some omnics returned to war with humans, while others remained peaceful but faced fear and violence. Overwatch was gone…but the world still needed heroes. You are a young man who's been many things: adventurer, treasure hunter, freedom fighter, and international criminal. Recently you encountered the re-formed Overwatch: a grand title for two ex-agents, Winston and Tracer, operating as outlaws out of an abandoned Watchpoint. Despite their down-and-out-status, or perhaps because of it, you were inspired to join them. You left your old life behind to become the first recruit of the new Overwatch.Now you and Tracer are travelling the globe, defending the people of the world from harm and searching for potential agents to rebuild Overwatch. The world needs heroes. Maybe you can be one of them.Updates: https://twitter.com/ravenkingquestsPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Overwatch%20QuestDiscord: https://discord.gg/t7DHUPk
Previously on Overwatch Quest:The Watchpoint is under attack! You and the team were settling in for a movie night, your first social event, when the main generator stopped, the alarms went off, and something exploded. Whoever's invading the base, they're ruining your chance to hang out with Tracer and Mercy! Oh, and they might kill you all, blow up the Watchpoint, and end the new Overwatch before it even really begins. That's important too.
>>1049969Nice to see we got our priorities straight
>>1049975it really is
The boom of a second explosion resounds through the air, then a third."Detecting breaches," says Athena. "Launch gantry. Server mainframe. Laboratory. They've done something to me in the mainframe, I can't -- kzzt -- zzzttzz --""Athena?" you say. No response. "Damn. Okay. Winston, how far are you along on those defense upgrades?""I've installed security cameras throughout the base," he says, pulling up the feed on his datapad, then scowling in frustration. "Which are currently hacked and unavailable. I installed new electronic countermeasures against the type of attack they used last time, but this is something new. Recognize this?" he asks you, showing you the symbol that's appeared on his pad.An all-too-familiar purple skull. "Oh. Yeah, I've had run-ins with her before. We better assume the cameras are toast for now. Anything else?""Security doors for the vulnerable rooms. They should have automatically closed and locked when the incursion was detected.""That's good, but if these guys have breaching charges that can blast through a cliff, we have to assume they can get through those doors too." You try to think over the situation. "How many do you think they are?""They sent six operatives and an agent last time," says Winston. "Some kind of ghost in a black hood. He was dangerous enough himself. They've probably sent a stronger force this time ..."You notice out of the corner of your eye that, as Winston mentions a "ghost in a black hood" Mercy visibly reacts in shock, then forces her emotions under control. Okay, that's something you'll make a note of for later, but you've got other things to deal with right now.

Agent Roles:Overwatch agents are assigned to four roles, roughly categorizing their weapons, skills, and specialties.Offense agents have high damage potential and either range or mobility, making them excellent scouts, duelists, and objective takers.Defense agents excel at guarding locations, denying ground, and restricting the enemy's actions.Tank agents are the front line of combat, protecting allies and disrupting enemies. They have high survivability and abilities that protect themselves and others such as shields or crowd control.Support agents heal and strengthen their fellow agents. They improve team performance and increase survivability, but are the worst fighters and work best when paired with teammates.Prepare your defenses:Offense: Seeker, McCree, TracerDefense: BastionTank: Reinhardt, WinstonSupport: Mercy>Tech Sector>Engineering>Hangar 18>Launch Sector
>>1050094Oh shit things just got complicated.>Tech Sector: Winston, Bastion>Engineering: McCree>Hangar 18: Reinhardt, Seeker>Launch Sector: Tracer, MercySomething tells me that this will take a while to debate on.
For starters, I think Bastion should go to either Hangar 18 or launch, those sound like flatish, open areas perfect for a killzone.
How far are some of these places anyway? Good to pair the faster characters with areas that are far away.
Yeah, we need more info. What's the environment in each of the rooms like in terms of cover, valuable equipment,etc.
>>1050094>Tech Sector: Winston Seeker>Engineering: Bastion Mercy>Hangar 18: McCree>Launch Sector: Reinhardt Tracer
Most of the base is set up like this: a central path for vehicles and moving equipment, with smaller rooms to either side. The main path has wide open sightlines, but someone mobile can find flanking routes using side halls and catwalks.
>>1050201That's the door between the Hangar and Launch Sector. Here's the Hangar, with the parked Aurora.Right now you're in the Launch Sector, in a room just off to the right of the first picture. Each area is farther away according to that list, so Tech is the farthest away.
>>1050094>Tech Sector: Seeker>Engineering: Reinhardt, McCreeReinhardt needs his armour, you fools>Hangar 18: Bastion, Winston>Launch Sector: Tracer, MercyMercy needs to be at the medbay, where Torb is.
>>1050232This, mostly so we can move on
>>1050232This, I guess
>>1050232Probably too late, but I should've swapped McCree and Tracer, since Engineering is farther away. As it is, we're telling the fastest-moving member of the team 'stay here'.
>>1050279so>Tech Sector: Seeker>Engineering: Tracer, Reinhardt>Hangar 18: Bastion, Winston>Launch Sector: McCree, Mercy
>>1050304Actually, no. Original configuration. Once Reinhardt has his armour, we can get him to go down to the Launch Sector, since Mercy and Reinhardt sounds vicious. Once Reinhardt arrives, Tracer hauls that cute ass to the Tech Sector, since that's the comms, which is likely the main target. That's my new plan, it probably won't survive contact with the enemy.
>>1050211>>1050201Shit, we're running Base Defense on Gibraltar?!Talon! They're going for the comm satellite! If we can't launch, we won't be able to contact any more of the former Overwatch agents!PUSH THAT PAYLOAD!>>1050094>>1050232This sounds good. Goddammit, Torbjorn--heal your lungs faster so we can get turrets and armor!
>>1050094Ignore my previous post, use this one:>Tech Sector: Seeker>Engineering: Reinhardt, McCreeReinhardt needs his armour, you fools>Hangar 18: Bastion, Winston>Launch Sector: Tracer, MercyMercy needs to be at the medbay, where Torb is.
"Mercy," you say. "You need to stay with Torbjorn. We can't let anything happen to him while he's still disabled. Tracer, can you stay here and keep them safe?"Tracer nods. "I'll do me best.""Bastion," you say to your robot buddy. "Can you help us out? Some bad guys are here. You remember where the Aurora is, right? I need you to go there and stop them from breaking anything. Can you do that, pal?"The robot beeps affirmatively."Winston, can you go with him? You're like, the tech guy, it makes sense to me you should go with the robot."The gorilla adjusts his glasses. "This is highly irregular, but ... what is science but exploration of the unknown? Come along, "Bastion". We'll see to the hangar.""McCree, get Reinhardt to his armor in the forge. Keep him safe while he suits up. Then cover his back while he smashes things.""Got it," he says. "You ready, old feller?""They shall soon feel my hammer," announces Reinhardt."That still leaves you," says Tracer. "What about you?"You spin your weapon into gun form. "Somebody's got to take the lab."
Soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRp1_AK7IoMThe team rolls out. Tracer and Mercy split off for the medbay. You range ahead of the others as you enter the hangar, and begin running for Winston's laboratory, at the other end of the base. As you run, you activate your comm link and listen to your team."Baddies here," says Tracer, her voice crackling with interference. "Talon operatives, just in case we weren't sure yet. Takin' these wankers out. Give me the boost, Mercy!"Winston says, "Nothing so far. Remaining vigilant." You hear the sound of Bastion transforming in the background.McCree says, "All quiet fer now. Reinhardt's going down to his armor. Wait -- damn, here they come! Hurry it up, old man!" You hear McCree's revolver firing. "I'll hold 'em off, just get that bucket of bolts on already--"You hear an explosion from back at the launch zone. "Err, that was some of the fuel," says Tracer. "Sorry about that. We're okay, though. Keepin' it up. Some of the baddies have energy shields!""What, like Reinhardt's?" you ask."Sort of. Smaller. They can't keep up with me. I got this, mate, don't worry.""We cut off their launchpad team from the hangar," says Winston. "They've stopped trying. No breaches here yet. Should Bastion and I stay here or reinforce another area?">Tell Winston and/or Bastion to reinforce other areas.>Tell them to stand their ground.
>>1050436>>Tell them to stand their ground.DON'T MOVE THEMTHIS IS DIVERSIONARY TACTICSTHEY'RE DRAWING OUR ATTENTION ELSEWHERE

>>1050436>>Tell them to stand their ground.Don't leave to reinforce unless they're being overrun--we have to maintain security of the entire base.
Where are they coming from anyway? We'll be needing to plug those holes anyway.And if they already took the server room, what else could they want than the resident AI, aside from all of us dead?
>>1050494The location of Overwatch agents. If they see us as a threat they will want to pick them off before they join up with us; just like they almost did with Torbjorn.
"I don't trust them," you say. "It feels like a diversion. Stand your ground. We have to maintain security of the entire base.""Roger," says Winston."McCree?" you ask."Doin' good," he replies. "Reinhardt's saddled up and takin' it to 'em. Ouch! I wouldn't have wanted to be that feller.""Tracer?""Little busy!" she shouts over the rapid-fire sound of her pistols.Okay. You don't have time to worry about your team anymore. You're here at the laboratory, and it's time for your own mission.The blast door is sealed, but it's a model you're already familiar with from your former line of work, and you break through it without much trouble. Silently, you slip into the lab.Inside you find a squad of Talon operatives, equipped with laser-sight rifles, basic body armor, and ballistic helmets with advanced optics. They're standing perimeter around the center of the lab, like they're guarding something.

No time for stealth or subtlety. You trigger your graviton boots and leap up to the second-floor catwalk, where you open up with a blast of fire from your gun. The operatives aren't expecting an attack from that direction, and two of them get tagged before they find cover behind Winston's equipment. Their laser sights swing ominously in your direction, and you duck behind the glass window of Winston's second-floor office, praying that the glass is bulletproof. It is, you see with a sigh of relief as the bullets impact the window, cracking but not breaking it.You start reloading your gun when a chill crawls up your spine. You look over to see a sinister-looking cloud of black smoke flow up from the ground floor onto the catwalk. The smoke swirls, coalesces into a human shape, and materializes into a man in a skull mask and a dark hood. "You?" he asks in a gravelly voice. "Hrr hrr hrr. I'm going to enjoy this." From inside his jacket he takes out two gigantic shotguns, one in each hand.>Sword Form: Clash at close range>Gun Form: Withdraw, take cover and fire>Grav Boots: Evasive action

"Time for some hazing."He pulls the trigger, but you're already gone, throwing yourself from the second floor onto the ground. You land, use your momentum to combat roll behind Winston's desk as shotgun pellets impact the ground behind you. Spinning your weapon into sword form, you attack the nearest Talon operative. He dodges with the reflexes of a well-trained soldier and cracks you in the chin with the butt of his assault rifle. You reel in pain but manage to grab his arm with your left hand and balance yourself. The two of you trade blows a second time before you're able to stab your sword into his stomach. The plasma blade sizzles and burns, and you withdraw it, letting the Talon soldier flop to the ground.HP: 140/200Ultimate Charge: 45%You crouch behind the desk, bullets from the remaining Talon operatives striking it repeatedly. Before you deal with Mr. Fashion Sense up there, you're going to have to deal with his minions.>Sword Form: Charge!>Gun Form: Trade fire.>Grav Boots: GTFO.>Comm link: Request reinforcements.

>>1051067>>1051070>>1051072When you get a chance, you peek your head up above the desk. There's only two of the operatives remaining. You raise your gun and open fire, but you can't aim properly under this suppression. Your first barrage goes wide, and you're forced to duck back down to reload. "C'mon, c'mon ..." you mutter to yourself as bullets whiz overhead. You pop up and fire again. This time you catch both of your targets, and they fall to the ground.HP: 140/200Ultimate Charge: 75%You hear a loud clank as the skull-masked man jumps down from the catwalk. He casually discards his spent shotguns on the floor with a clattering sound, and takes two more out of his coat. That looks badass and all, but hasn't he ever heard of reloading?"Nice shotguns," you call out to him. "You trying to copy Gabriel Reyes or something?"He growls. "You have no idea what you're dealing with, kid." He slowly walks forward, shotguns ready. "Overwatch was dead. You should have let it stay that way."While he's talking, you're searching the corpse of the Talon operative in front of you for some kind of weapon. These guys seem well-equipped, they must have something on them. He does have a grenade, which you quickly snatch up.>Duel him.>Keep him talking, stall.>Use the grenade.

>>1051203>>1051228Actually I'm switching to just throwing the grenade, fuck it.
You press down the activator on the grenade and throw it. It lands right at the man's feet, the little red light blinking rapidly. He looks down at it. "Hmmm," he says, thoughtfully. The grenade explodes in a dense blast of fragments."Yes!" you say, pumping your first.The blast clears, revealing a cloud of dark smoke where the man stood. The smoke swirls, then races across the ground in your direction, around the side of the desk, and re-forms itself into the dark soldier. "Nice try," he says, levelling his shotguns at your face.Dammit. >Sword Form: Close range duel.>Gun Form: Play keepaway.>Grav boots: Run away!

You duck and spin to the side just as he pulls the trigger. The world feels like it's in slow motion. You can almost see each individual shotgun pellet slam into the ground. You jump up and backwards, landing on the desk and dodging a second shot. Then you do a sweet backflip, jumping over a third shot -- while rotating in midair, you aim your gun at an upside-down Reaper and pull the trigger -- a barrage strikes him in the chest, and he staggers.You land in what you hope is a cool pose. "Had enough yet, Hot Topic?" He vaults of the desk and chases after you, firing one shotgun after the other. You weave between shots like a dancer. "Hold still, dammit -- hrrngh--!!""If I took off that mask," you ask him, dodging one shotgun blast after another. "Would you die? I bet it would be extremely painful, but you're a big guy--""For you!" growls skull mask, blasting away."A big guy for me?!" you ask, feigning shock as you dance away from his firing line. "Whatever you do in your personal life, pal, that's no business of mine--""Rrrraaaaargh!!!" he shouts. Click! Click! His guns are empty. He tosses them aside--"Sorry pal," you say, levelling your own gun directly at his face, barely a foot away. "Get your own guns next time instead of ripping off a hero."BLAMBLAMBLAMBLAM! You empty your entire magazine point-blank into the skull mask. The mask shatters, cracks, and drops to the ground. The man screams in agony, dissolving into a cloud of black smoke that begins to slowly drift away."Get out of my base," you tell the smoke cloud.

GRAB THE MASK FRAGMENTS NOW!
We need to check Athena now to stop any hacking attempts that are probably underway.
"Oh my god," you say to yourself. "I hope the security cameras saw that." You pull out your datapad and check the security cam footage. Still blanked out from the hacking. You sink to your knees in despair. "NOOOOOOOOwait, I have a camera in my helmet ..." You activate the 5-minute replay feature and re-watch your first-person killcam of kicking Reaper's ass. "Yesss," you say, pumping your fist.Tracer's voice crackles in your communicator. "Seeker, luv, how you doing? What's happening in the lab?""Just taking care of business," you say.>Brag about it.>Be nonchalant about it.>All business.
>>1051537>Brag about itWhy'd you only include one option this time, Raven?
>>1051537>Be nonchalant about it.
>>1051537>>Be nonchalant about it.
>>1051537>All business>Be nonchalant about it
>>1051537>>Be nonchalant about it."Yeah, y'know, just took down Reaper. No biggy."
>>1051537>>All business.we are working here people no time for smug
>>1051540>>1051541>>1051543>qst in a nutshell
>>1051537>All businessWe don't want anyone freezing mid-battle in amazement, after all. Actually just because we're still in a bit of a tense situation, so we should stick to business.After the battle, though>Be nonchalant about itJust mention it if it comes up.
>>1051554oh yeah were still fighting, changing vote to this
>>1051554changing to this.
>>1051537>Be nonchalant about it.>Check Athena's serversThey still might be hacking her.
>>1051537>Be nonchalant about it.Just making the Play of the Game over here.
>>1051537Changing >>1051541 to>Be nonchalant about it.
for the love of god we have to get those mask fragments.
>>1051593We will, we will. We're in the middle of a battle, though, so we have other priorities.
>>1051593Are those important or do we just want them for bragging rights?
"Oh, I just kicked that ghost man's ass," you say, nonchalant. "No big deal.""You wot?!" asks Tracer. "Reaper was there? Why didn't you call for backup?""Oh, ummm--" You don't want to say, because I wanted to impress you guys. "I had the situation under control, I didn't want to weaken any of our other defenses. How are we doing? Battle status?""Tangoes down. Launch sector is clear," says Tracer. "I've taken care of my guys. Took a few hits, but Mercy kept me going.""All done here," says McCree. "Engineering is under control.""We're fine here," says Winston. "They never attacked the hangar, but er, it's good that we had it defended, just in case." He sounds relieved to have avoided the fighting. From what you remember, Winston isn't a coward, but he doesn't like to hurt anyone, even Talon operatives."So we're done?" you say. "In the clear?""Looks like it," says Tracer. "Once Winston gets Athener online, we'll know for sure."You squat down to collect the fragments of ghost man's mask. You're not sure if this will be useful for anything, but if nothing else, it will make a good trophy. "All right," you say to Tracer. "I'm on my way to the server room."(Continued)
>>1051646>Nobody attacked the hangerOhWell now how are we supposed to know if Bastion is battle ready?
>>1051646>trophywe need more trophieswhat happened to all of our cool spelunking trophy's?
>>1051662he heard gun shots and explosions and didn't go cray cray
>>1051677cue winston having a fetal position bastion in his arms cuz he went full ptsd mode
While the others reconvene and get their wounds attended to by Mercy, you and Winston head to the computer mainframe.You rub your jaw and move it back and forth. It's not broken, just painful. In the end, that ghost guy -- Reaper, Tracer called him -- never even laid a shot on you. It was just that one Talon operative that landed a couple of good shots. You never know when a flunky is going to step up to the plate, you think."I can deal with this myself," says Winston. He has a datapad hooked into the computer and is trying to undo the hack on Athena. "You should get that looked at by Mercy.">I'm fine. This is more important.>All right.>Who was that guy in the mask?>This is going to happen again.>What happened with Bastion?
>>1051731>>Who was that guy in the mask?>>This is going to happen again.
>>1051731>I'm fine. This is more important.>What happened with Bastion?
>>1051731>>All right.>What happened with Bastion?>we need some defences.
>>1051731>All right.>Who was that guy in the mask?>What happened with Bastion?In Winston's short Athena seemed to already know of Reaper, so we should look up everything she knows about him.
>>1051731>>I'm fine. This is more important.>Who was that guy in the mask?>What happened with Bastion?So many questions.
>>1051731>I'm fine. This is more important.>This is going to happen again.
>Who was that guy in the mask?>I'm fine. This is more important.
>>1051731>>This is going to happen again.>>What happened with Bastion?
>>1051731>>I'm fine. This is more important.>>Who was that guy in the mask?
>>1051731>Just got cracked in the jaw nothing to serious.>Who was that guy in the mask?>This is going to happen again. We might need to relocate.
>>1051731>>I'm fine. This is more important.>What happened with Bastion?
"I'm fine," you say. "This is more important.""Well, okay. It's true that Athena is vital to our operation." Winston sits down on the ground, shifts the datapad to one of his prehensile feet, and types with both hands. He scowls. "I thought that I had upgraded her security enough, but obviously not. I blame myself for all this.""It's all right, big guy," you say. "I know the hacker who was behind this. She's good. Real good. Not much you could have done, I bet. What about about that spooky ghost guy? Do you know anything? I heard the rumors, but I never thought they were true. I mean, a Talon agent who can turn into a shadowy smoke cloud? The world is a weird place, but I didn't think it was that weird.""Tracer and I have been calling him "Reaper,"" says Winston. "We've run into him a number of times over the past few months. We don't know anything about him, other than he's some kind of elite assassin, and he started working for Talon a few years ago.""His guns look like ones Gabriel Reyes used to carry, right? The disposable shotguns.""That's true," says Winston. "Reyes carried a shotgun replicator. Talon must have stolen the technology from us somehow.""That makes sense," you say, wondering if that's really the whole story. "Oh, right. What happened with the Bastion?""He was quite cooperative," says Winston. "I asked him to set up in sentry form in a certain spot, and he did so. Then the Talon operatives from the launch zone tried to take refuge inside, so I told Bastion to fire over their heads and scare them off. He did that too.""Nice," you say. "I've got a good feeling about that bot, you know? I think he could actually be a team member.""That's quite unusual," says Winston, looking up from his datapad. "But not without precedent. Overwatch does, after all, contain the Earth's only talking gorilla, its only victim of chronology damage, its last remaining Crusader ... Overwatch is a good place for people who, er. Well. You know." He goes back to typing.People who don't have anybody, you think. I get you, Winston.
>>1051839Poor gorilla bro. Place our hand on his shoulder dramatically to remind him that he's not alone. Or something. I see people do it in movies often.
>>1051839Does anyone else wanna hug him, or is it just me?
>>1051839Hug the monk- scientist.
>>1051839>Hug the gentle giant
>Hand on shoulder>Hug>Move on
>>1051839Give hugsIs it possible the fragments have weird talon spy stuff on them?
>>1051856Me too, but I was afraid a hug might be too much so I toned it down to a shoulder pat.If everyone thinks a hug is alright then heck yeah lets hug the gorilla.
>>1051873Hug the gorilla
>>1051873>>Hand on shoulderyall some bitches
>>1051873>>Hand on shoulder
>>1051873>HugLike this is even a choice.
>>1051839>Hug Winston>"So, do we have a plan for the next time Talon feels like dropping by our place?"
>>1051459... holy fuck, we're Peter Parker. We're snarky, athletic, and a bit of a technophile.
>>1051865FUCK YOU I SAID HUG THE GENTLE GIANT
>>1051873>Hand on shoulder
You're a little afraid it might be too much, but this seems like the sort of situation to go all the way. It's a bit of a stretch, but you manage to wrap your arms around Winston from behind. "We've got each other," you tell him.He freezes up a little. You wonder when the last time was he'd been touched other than in a battle. "Th-thanks, Seeker," he says, pushing up his glasses. He wipes at one eye. Is that a tear? "I-I've got this for now. Why don't you go see how the others are doing?""Okay, big guy," you say, figuring you should give him some space. "I'll talk to you later."Later, back in the movie room:"Hahaha! You see?" You point at the screen showing your first-person replay of the battle earlier. "Right in his face! Kablammo!"Tracer says eagerly, "Show it again!""Again!" shouts Reinhardt. "Again!!""Okay!"Everyone else appreciated it the first time, and has since drifted off to discuss the evening's events. You, Tracer, and Reinhardt watch the replay for the seventh time. "Kablammo!" you shout again.Tracer claps gleefully. Reinhardt shouts, "Glorious victory!">Keep watching the replay.>Get healing from Mercy.>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.
>>1051945>>try to Keep watching the replay.> mercy interrupt!
>>1051945>>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.We've had our fun, time for business now.

>>1051945>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.Most pressing issue. If you watch the replay too many times, it'll get boring, and then that'll stick with people rather than how awesome it was.That said, I won't say no to>Watch the replay a couple more times.
>>1051945>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.>Come up with cheesy one-liners.

>Get healing from Mercy.>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.
>>1051945>Get healing from Mercy.>Figure out what you're going to do next time Talon attacks.Watching our PotG repeatedly seems like a Deadpoolish thing to do.
>>1051945I think we're all forgetting somethingWeren't we supposed to be watching a movie?And if Talon can still see what we're doing somehow, how insulting would it be if we just went right back to that as if nothing happened?
>>1051945>>Keep watching the replay.
>>1052037We are watching a movie. Of Reaper getting owned.
>>1052037oh right>finish movie>>1051945
>>1052037We all watched Edgy Mc.Edgelord get destroyed
"That's enough for now," you say, shutting off the video. "Don't want it to get boring. We'll save it for the highlight reel. I've got to see Mercy."You walk towards Mercy's medbay, intending to get your cuts and bruises taken care of. As you walk, part of you is trying to think of more snazzy one-liners for your next battle against Talon. The other part is concerned with the battle part. Talon will surely try an assault like this again in the future. What are you going to do about it now?You could leave, but where else could Overwatch find a base like this to sustain itself? You have so few resources right now ...You take out your datapad and turn it on. "Athena, you there?""Hello, Seeker," she says, her logo appearing on screen."Glad to have you back with us," you say. "Doing all right?""It is a most unpleasant experience being hacked," she says. "But I am "all right." How can I assist you?""We need to talk about our defenses," you say, entering the medbay. "Talon's going to try this again. We did good tonight, but we can't rely on that in the future. We need to be ready.""I agree," says Mercy, looking over. "Excellent work, tonight, Seeker. Do you need something? I thought G-- Reaper wasn't able to hurt you at all? You did those, er. What did you call them. "Badass moves.""Did she start to say something other than "Reaper"? No, you're probably just tired. "He didn't," you say. "One of those punks hit me in the face. Guess you can never tell when a minion is going to step up and get the job done.""All right, I'll get you patched up. Mask off, please."You take off your mask and set it aside, noticing the crack. Need to get that repaired later.Mercy leans in and examines your split lip. You wonder if you'll ever get used to her doing this. Tracer is cute and lively, but Mercy's objectively beautiful in a way that most humans don't even approach. According to the records, she's supposed to be 37 years old, but she doesn't look a day over 20. To Mercy:>How did it go with Tracer?>What do you think we should do about Talon?>What do you think we should do about base defense?To Athena:>Tell me our options for base defense.
>>1052059I guess you could say he reaped what he sowed. Yea give me more time i will come up with something better
>>1052077>>What do you think we should do about Talon?>What do you think we should do about base defense?Later...>Tell me our options for base defense.
>>1052077>Tell me our options for base defense.
>>1052079that's not bad at all
>>1052077>How did it go with Tracer?>Are there any outposts we could move too where Talon won't find us?
>>1052077>What do you think we should do about Talon?>What do you think we should do about base defense?>Tell me our options for base defense.
>>1052079That's pretty good anon.
>>1052077>How did it go with Tracer?>You got any ideas for keeping Talon at bay? And I swear to god, if you say 'put up 'keep out' signs' I'm leaving Overwatch right now.
>>1052077Mercy>What do you think we should do about Talon?Widowmaker came to tell you to stop, now this attack. So know anyway we can take out their resources or something.Athena>Tell me our options for base defense.Should we wait for dorf to wake up so the both of you can figure things out. Also, should we integrate Bastion as a moving turret to cover fires when needed?
>>1052077>>How did it go with Tracer?>>Tell me our options for base defense.
>>1052077>Athena. What were you about to call Reaper?
>>1052077>everything work out with tracer and you? Hope you're getting back into the saddle again with the field once again.>What's our options here.Do we have alternative talk options with Athena here or was that superflous for continuing the conversation?
>>1052144it was mercy that was talking about it not athena
>>1052092>>1052099You could also say he learned a valuable lesson.
"What do you think we should do about all this?" you ask her. "Talon, I mean. According to Winston, Reaper was here a few weeks ago with a smaller squad. Widowmaker showed up in Zurich to tell you to stop. Now this attack. They're not going to stop here. They're going to keep trying.""It's not exactly my area of expertise," she says, holding a compact device near your face that glows with the yellow light of biotic healing. "But ... I don't think we should run.""You don't? I mean, they're going to keep coming after us.""That's right," she says. "They're going to keep coming, no matter where we go. We can only hide for so long. I'm only the medic, but ... I say that we make our stand here. That we fortify the Watchpoint and dare them to come back.""That's pretty bold for a doctor," you say. "Isn't your concern supposed to be the safety of your patients?""When I'm in Overwatch, Seeker, the world is my patient. I have to do what I can to help everyone. And in this case, the way to do that is to stand up to Talon.""That's ... noble of you, if not super realistic. But I get that. It's like you said. When you're a doctor, you have to be an idealist and a pragmatist at the same time.""Exactly," she says.
>>1052177Terry Pratchett is a God, man.
Dinner break for me, then I gotta work on your options for base defense. Thanks for playing anons, hope you're enjoying yourselves.
>>1052232thanks for running
>>1052232No, thank YOUIf you were a gorilla I'd awkwardly hug you, this is great stuff
>>1052214Or he should had brought a bigger bag...Ok i'm stop now.
Goodness--I leave for a couple hours to grab sushi and you people get essentially the POTG dunking on ReaperA couple things--first, have Athena start running diagnostics through her systems at closest convenience. Same for Bastion, too--I doubt this was merely an extermination attack. If she's wormed an exploit into our systems, I'd like it isolated.It's good that we're getting brownie points with the other heroes--Winston, especially. Big old softie needs a bro.And on the topic of Sombra--we should tell Winston everything we know about her. It might not be much, but it might be enough to get a lead or two going, see where that goes.For real, though--wicked save, guys. I was pretty sure we were gonna get ganked for a minute reading through that and Mercy woulda had to rez us.>>1052232Thanks as always, Raven.
So, who else thinks our relationship with Sombra is one of mutual exasperation. Like they want to like each other but they each kept fucking up each other's Heists/Missions/Operations with out meaning to before this.
>>1052304Can it be another "I don't want to talk about it"?
>>1052304Also, maybe we paid for Sombra's help for some of our jobs, like for information and strategic blackouts.
>>1052304I think its more they have worked with each other but dislike one another due to a difference in ideology Seeker is a good man that wants to help peopleSombra is a woman that's all about getting more power and money
>>1052408That's how I'd see it myself.
>>1052408So seeker is a bro, sombra is a cuntwaffle? got it
would you waifu rule63 winston?
>>1052540Nah but I'd like him to have a Winston the Pooh skin
>>1051083I beat you to that joke awhile ago.
Hey Ravenking, how's our mom doing in the election?And can we vidchat our Dad sometime?
>>1052304It will be like siblings kind of thing. Like screwing each other plans but it's all good.Oh! Why dont we send a copy of our vid to her? She might want a blackmail....ooor she might analize our tactics
You take your datapad off to a quiet corner of the Watchpoint. You plug in some headphones and turn on Lucio's singles. Lucio's a DJ in Brazil, equally famous for his huge following accumulated with only live shows, and for his outspoken anti-corporate political beliefs. He's been working on a album for two years, Synaesthesia Auditiva, supposed to be some kind of national epic for Brazil. You're not sure about that, but the two singles he's released ahead of time are super catchy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmDCt3JHNqIYour foot taps to chill beats as Athena brings up a schematic of the Watchpoint."Okay, Athena. Let's figure this out."
>>1052079You could also say he got kicked off his high horse...Ok i lied that one was probably the best i would come up with.
There are three ways to defend the Watchpoint. Each can protect you against certain types of threats, but not others, so a balanced approached is best.Defense represents fortifications and gun emplacements, ways to protect yourself from a straight-forward physical assault.Security represents electronic and information warfare, protecting against stealth and hacking, and predicting threats before they happen.Soldiers are armed staff. They are versatile, capable of both patrolling to increase security and fighting to defend the base, but also have extra vulnerabilities.Scraping together what remains of your personal fortune, you have enough money for 2 of these upgrades. Defense Upgrades:Defense Turrets: Basic automated machine guns.Anti-Aircraft Battery: Defend against enemy aircraft and missiles.Blast Shields: Enemy breach charges are less effective.Security Upgrades:Darknet Analysis: Monitor enemy activity and communications. May predict events before they occur.Scanners: Improved threat detection system, perimeter + interior.Firewall: Increased Athena defense vs hacking.Hack Function: Athena can hack enemies.Soldiers:Hire foot soldiers for security staff, base defense, and in a pinch, fieldwork.
>>1052813Defense Turrets: Basic automated machine guns.Firewall: Increased Athena defense vs hacking.We'll get more down the line. No extra soldiers mean we still keep a low profile. We also don't want Athena getting hacked again.
>>1052813>Darknet Analysis: Monitor enemy activity and communications. May predict events before they occur.>Hire foot soldiers for security staff, base defense, and in a pinch, fieldwork.Like General Patton used to say, no one ever won a war by sitting on their ass.
>>1052813>Firewall: Increased Athena defense vs hacking.and>Hire foot soldiers for security staff, base defense, and in a pinch, fieldwork.Can never go wrong with more soldiers.
>>1052813>Darknet Analysis: Monitor enemy activity and communications. May predict events before they occur.>Firewall: Increased Athena defense vs hacking.
>>1052813>Darknet Analysis: Monitor enemy activity and communications. May predict events before they occur.>SoldiersWith Sombra with them any kind of mechanical defense is going be useless; our best bet should be to detect attacks ahead of time so we can dig in and prepare for them and of course you can't hack flesh.
>>1052813Anti-Aircraft Battery: Defend against enemy aircraft and missiles.Firewall: Increased Athena defense vs hacking.AA because we are on Gibraltar, an island. the fastest way to get to an island is air. if we force them the go the sea routes either through Spain or Morocco, its easier for Athena to know about it and we can counter.As a collorary to that we need Athena up, so she need to be protected from hacking. We saw how bad our defences were during the attack, and a mook might get lucky again.
>>1052840This>All these people who want generic soldiers when we're still trying to be quiet about new OW
>>1052840Agreed. This logic is sound.
>>1052846But anon, we need generic soldiers.
>>1052813Reminder to check the news once we're done shoring up defences.
Firewall is a clear winner. Let's have a runoff vote for our second-place tie here.>AA Battery>Darknet Analysis>Soldiers
>>1052846Well it depends on where we recruit. We can't trust anything mechanical since they have Sombra and there is no such thing as a hack-proof system so at best we can slow her down but sooner or later she will find a way in.
>>1052857Well if were getting a firewall then i say the AA battery
>>1052857>>SoldiersGotta have grunts!
>>1052857Lets hear those guns!
You know it would be nice for Seeker to figure out that Reyes is Reaper. I mean a bunch of clues are there. Wait, even better make that realization be a High DC roll at the end of the thread.
>>1052910That would be fun to do. Plus Mercy almost name dropped Gabriel.
>>1052910its presumed that Reyes is dead so he would have no real reason to believe reaper is him
"The first thing," you say to Athena. "Is to get your firewall upgraded. I'm sure we both agree that you being hacked again is a vulnerability we don't need.""Agreed. Maintaining control over electronic security is paramount. And as for myself, being hacked is an experience I'm eager to avoid repeating.""Yeah, I can't imagine it's pleasant," you say. You think for a few minutes about what else to get. You can only afford one other thing for now. You come to decision and say, "I think we should get an anti-aircraft gun. I'm tempted to hire some soldiers, or buy you that Darknet Analysis function. But out here on the peninsula, the fastest way for anyone to get here is by air. I think we should prepare for that, and have a big gun ready to shoot them down before they can even get here."Athena shows you a few schematics for anti-aircraft guns. "That one looks good," you say, tapping the screen. "A good old-fashioned ack-ack.""Beginning scan of world black market," says Athena. "Any contacts of your own you might share with me?""For an ack-ack? Hell no," you say. "For the firewall, well ... no. I mean, yes, but I don't trust them. I could contact Hackercat, but I suspect that little pest would throw in a virus for my trouble.">Contact Hackercat anyway.>Forget it.
>>1052933>>Forget it.No need to get hacked.
>>1052933Ask what Athena thinks of asking Hackercat. Then let's make the decision based on her thoughts
>>1052933>>1052938Wonder if Winston can scan the firewall or something before we buy it
>>1052933>Forget it.Not worth risking Athena for convenience
>>1052910>>1052927Oh i got another one: That angel of death fell hard. Ugh that was awful; that's the last one you guys get out me; at least for the rest of the night.
>>1052933>>Forget it.Get us in contact with a gunrunner selling off Russian surplus--it's probably gonna be ancient, but if it works I'm not against using it.Besides, they've got Omnic problems still--if we can lift some salvage off their hands I'm sure they wouldn't mind it.
>>1052933>Contact Hackercat anyway.
"Forget it," you say. "I only use Hackercat when I'm desperate.""What is ... Hackercat?" Athena asks you."To be honest, I don't know. I haven't figured out if it's a person pretending to be a cat, or a cat pretending to be a person. Either way, she sells black market program functions." You think a few moments. Part of you wants to change your mind. You'll wait and see how Athena does finding a quality firewall program on your own.A different idea occurs to you. "Maybe I can get in touch with one of my old Russian friends. They might have some military salvage ..."Oh, right. What about base upgrades? You've still got that equipment requisitioned for Mercy to build her a proper medical facility?""Correct.""Hmmm. So once we get some more money, we can get some more security or upgrade the base. I'll have to figure out some way to boost our finances. I could just go out and, you know. Steal some. But I don't think the team would like it if they found out.""Probably not. I will look into possible revenue sources.""Oh!" you say, snapping your fingers. "I just thought of something. I bet I can put this together for cheap. What about a rec room, or a lounge? We can turn that movie room into a proper place for us to hang out. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. A televid, a bar, a game table ...">Yeah! It'll be great.>On second thought, maybe not. We're an illegal paramilitary group, we should stay focused on the job.
We should have Athena run a diagnostic scan on herself, whatever we do. First rule of hacking is always leave yourself a back door to get back in. And piecing together the info about reaper to figure out who he is should totally be a roll at the end of the thread. Jack was also supposed to be dead and isn't. Reaper has the same style, height, build, weapons, accent and bad attitude as gabriel did. There are only a few people on earth who could make Angela slip like that. Seeker is bright enough, if not to figure out that it's gabriel, then at least that Mercy knows who it is and is hiding it from us.
>Yeah! It'll be great.
>>1052976>Compromise: Get a sauna room.
>>1052976>Yeah! It'll be greatWe should probably reinforce some of the stuff there for Reinhardt's inevitable drunk antics
>>1052976>>Yeah! It'll be great.We need SOME R&R capabilities on-base.
>>1052976>>Yeah! It'll be great.the mind and spirit need rest as much as the body
>>1052976>>Yeah! It'll be great.It's totally doable!I'm giving it three days after the Gremlin arrives that she posts ridiculously high scores on whatever arcade cabinets we have set up.
>>1052991If she does, i vote we program the machines to automatically generate someone with a higher score on the leaderboard just to fuck with her
>>1052976>Yeah! It'll be great how hard could it be?
>>1052976>Yeah! It'll be great>>1052991Unless we rig them first
"Yeah! It'll be great. The mind and spirit need rest, as well as the body," you say. There, that sounds profound. She won't think you're just trying to get a bar on the base so you can have drinks with Mercy and Tracer."All right, this one I can figure out myself. Get a couch, a bar, some stools, maybe some arcade machines ... yeah, this will be fun. I bet everyone will enjoy having a place to blow off steam after a mission." You sigh and flop back onto the grass beneath you. "I could sure use one tonight, actually. I'm still keyed up after kicking Reaper's butt."You stare up at the night sky. Despite being attacked in your own base tonight, you feel a sense of confidence. Things are looking good.
Done for tonight, agents.Things I saw you guys mention, which I will address soon:>Reaper's identity>Mask analysis>World News>Seeker's parentsThanks for playing!

>>1053008Thanks for running!Would there be consequences if we repaired Reaper's mask and wore it the next time we fought him. In order to mock the edgelord, of course.
(Actually, I will mention that first one, just because it's an appropriate cliffhanger!)There is something nagging at you. Just who is this mysterious "Reaper?" There are some odd similarities between him and Gabriel Reyes, the commander of Blackwatch, the old Overwatch's black ops section. Height, build, the shotgun replicator. But Reyes is dead, killed in the explosion of the Zurich headquarters ...... or is he? There's someone on this very base who has some kind of barely-explained power to bring the dead back to life. Mercy, bearer of the Ultimate: Resurrection. She also reacted strangely a few times when Reaper was brought up. Could it really be--No. No way. Couldn't be.Could it?
Rolled 417 (1d1000)>>1053020
>>1053020Time to carry Reye's action figure just so we can whip it out of our coat when we interrogate a Talon operative and scream "HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN?!"
>>1053233What the fuck. That's literally insane, holy shit.Let's do it.
>>1053233This plan is not quite Fate/Stay Again tier but it's closeI like it
>>1053233This is fantastic. We definitely need to do this.
>tell that pharah is a gloryhhound>recotd own POTGI can see why fareeha is miffed.On the other hand, cant we ask torb to make turets?
>>1053486Idunno if I'm right or not, but I assumed we were gonna ask Torb to make the AA turret, it's just that we needed to spend money on the raw materials he needs, along with ammo and whatnot.
>>1053465What does>Fate/Stay Again tiermean?
>>1053836It's an anime with some seriously strange plans and methods used by the characters.
>>1053233We have to fucking do this.
>>1053233> G Gundam reference> everyone else assumes it's a Fate/Stay-tier crazy plan
>>1054651I thought it was a Deadpool reference.
>>1055186That's actually yu-gi oh.
>>1055411Regardless, it feels like something out of a Jim Carrey movie.That is to say Seeker should absolutely do it.
>>1053836Fate/Stay is a light novel with strange plans and unique charactersFate/Stay Again is that but it was with /tg/ at the helm, so even stranger plans and so many clutch rolls.
>>1053836Fate/Stay Again was a quest on the /tg/ that can't exactly be accurately described, but needs to be experienced to be understood.Perhaps the best example of the quest's hilarity can be summed up in this quote from arguably the most (in)famous thread of the quest:>>Shirou fails to fix a bike with magic>>Shirou fails to fix a bike with his hands>>Now Shirou's on fire>>Flashback starts>>Shirou's on fire there too>>The fire burns almost as hot as our failures.>>I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard>>1054651Arguably I don't think people would be that cool going about it. It'd probably look something like>Talon operative and Seeker are sitting across from each other in the makeshift interrogation room>Seeker, very cooly and serious as a sealed STI test results letter, plonks down a Gabriel Reyes action figure on the table>"Have you seen this man?">Bewildered, the operative looks at the action figure, then back at Seeker>Then back at the action figure, then back at Seeker>Then looks at the double-sided mirror, then the door>He is only now beginning to question his life choices as an Overwatch operative sits in front of him, hoping that he can distinguish the squished plastic features on an action figure for someone to which he is apparently under employment
>>1055755If nothing else, it would be funny.I'm not a robot
>>1055755Don't forget the time Shirou managed to blather good enough to convince Gilgamesh that he had gotten to the temple first by using a shortcut...in the dark, up a mountain
>>1055755I imagined it more like the Deadpool scene, where Seeker gets a Talon agent in a hold and jokingly asks him the question before knocking him out.
>>1055755But anon, that sounds hilarious.

Hello anons. Back for a bit with world news, the next mission vote, and a fun surprise.
>>1059313YAY!I would like to go to Hanamura.
The next morning:A team of repair drones, directed by Brigitte and the recovering Torbjorn, begins work repairing the explosive breaches Talon blasted into the outer walls.You help Winston scan Athena and Bastion for potential viruses or back doors left by Sombra. The scans come up clean. If she did leave something, you can't detect it.Scans of Reaper's broken mask don't reveal any bugs or secrets, just armored plating. This is definitely going in the trophy room, you think. Do we have a trophy room? If not, we should make one.You ask Athena to catch you up on world events.The first thing she shows you is pictures of Mercy and Reinhardt, taken in action by civilians during the Titan mech attack in Kurjikstan. These pictures were dismissed as a hoax at first, but are now spreading across the web. The most popular one is a dramatic angle of Reinhardt with his shield raised, protecting two civilians from enemy fire.Many still don't believe the pictures are real. Others are arguing over what it means. Is Overwatch back? Are they imposters? Either way, the people who survived thanks to their efforts have been emphatic in their support, and local public opinion has swayed in your favor.Middle East reputation improved (+1)
In Japan, there is no further word from or evidence of Genji Shimada, cyborg ninja and ex-agent. However, Athena brings your attention to the Shimada clan."That's Genji's family who tried to kill him or something, right? Can you remind me of how that all went down?"Athena shows you pictures of the Shimada Clan's corporate headquarters in Hanamura, Japan; a young Genji before he became a cyborg, a smirking, green-haired punk; and Hanzo Shimada, Genij's older brother, a stern, bearded man in traditional Japanese clothing."Genji was once the young scion of the Shimadas, criminal syndicate and ninja clan. When his behavior gave insult to the clan, they ordered his older brother, Hanzo, to kill him. He was only partly successful. Due to the efforts of our own Dr. Angela Ziegler, Genji's life was saved at the cost of extensive cyberization. He would later graduate Overwatch class 7 along with Lena Oxton and Winston and join the agency.""Right, okay. So what's up with his clan?"Athena tells you about some of the moves she's detected the Shimada clan making behind the scenes. Apparently their current power and influence is not enough. If the cards of their latest scheme fall into place, they may soon control the Japanese government itself from the shadows."Wouldn't surprise me if Genji found out, and was trying to stop them," you say. "What about his brother, Hanzo? Is he involved?""Unknown. After the incident with his brother, he left the clan. He has mostly lived off the grid since then."
>>1059327Oh shit we have reputation? Should we deal with Junkrat and Roadhog son then too get Australia on our side?
The Junkers, Roadhog and Junkrat, are now the prime suspects in yesterday's bombing of Hyde Global's Sydney headquarters. Athena shows you a picture of a fancy corporate skyscraper exploding, alongside mugshots of the Junkers. Privately, you somewhat like the idea of blowing those fat cats in Hyde Global to kingdom come. They're scumbags like the rest of those megacorp slime. Maybe those Junkers aren't so bad. As long as there was minimized civilian property damage. You scroll down the article ...... oh. Whoops. Never mind.
In Rio de Janeiro, anti-corporate unrest continues to rise. Vishkar Corp is rumored to soon announce plans for new developments that will involve demolishing houses in the favelas and poor neighborhoods. The outspoken musician Lucio has already raised vocal objections on the people's behalf.The last thing Athena mentions is a strange signal she's receiving from Ecopoint Antarctica.The Ecopoints were bases establised by the old Overwatch to monitor global climate shift. This base was abandoned years ago, before Overwatch ever disbanded, when it was struck by a polar storm, completely burying the base. Apparently something is re-awakening there to the point where Athena's receiving a transmission. It's just a ping, it doesn't contain any information. But it still might worth investgating.
we have enough people to split this up into at least two and still have enough people to keep the base safe.im for mei and the shimada brothers for the others and us helping lucio.good split up
You should get the base repaired first, but soon you'll be ready to take the Aurora out on another mission. You think over what needs to be done first.>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.>Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Investigate anti-corporate unrest.>Sydney, Australia: Hunt down the Junkers.>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal.
>>1059416>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.and maybe send two or three people to>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal.
>>1059416>>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.I would personally like to go do the mission in Rio, but the business with the Shimada clan seems more important at the moment.
>>1059416>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.
>>1059397>>1059383Okay, suggesting we hit the antarctic base (because, in character, we don't know what's over there, and on the off chance it's something living, there's a good chance the base's internal climate control hasn't held out), then australia (stock up on your mad max jokes, people) then rio, then japan, since genji seems the least urgent
>>1059416>Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Investigate anti-corporate unrest.is go tois in character for us>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.also in character, to a lesser degreethe junker if only to bring them in to the police because there not heros and antarctica because strange things are fun and we like spelunking
>>1059416>>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.>>Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Investigate anti-corporate unrest.
You're almost at the point where you can send multiple teams, but right now you still only have one plane, the Aurora. So if you'd like to send two teams, one team will need to get someplace using civilian transport, which could be inconvenient.
>>1059416>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal
>>1059416>>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal.
>>1059436damn. well if we get the shimada bros on our side we could possibly get more money
>>1057515Well Satya is a bit of a dancer, and dancing does lend itself to a certain amount of...flexibility.Whether or not she takes our compliments as flirting--or even notices it as flirting at all--depends on how emotionally dense/autistic Raven decides to write her.>>1059416>>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal.Guys, we need to save Ice Satan from her frozen tomb!
>>1059416>>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.Lets deal with the shadowy conspiracy trying to subvert a government first. If we can, we should make it clear exactly what they were up to. That'll force them to stay low for a while.
>>1059416>>Ecopoint Antarctica: Investigate the strange signal.Mei is best girl. Plus ya can't go wrong with more cc.
>>1059416>>>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.We left it long enough for genji to disappear

>>1059458I'm gonna laugh my ass off if we end up with symettra
>>1059416>Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Investigate anti-corporate unrest.
So what are the chances that we'll encounter The Thing in Antarctica, and that it was the reason the facility got overwhelmed?
>>1059416>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada ClanWe don't know shit about what's down in Antarctica. On the other hand, we DO know that the Shimadas are trying to take over the Japanese Government. Seems clear-cut to me.
>>1059467she is literally the opposite of us.us and lucio have a better chance of being a couplewont happen though. people are afraid of being gay
>Hanamura, Japan: Investigate the Shimada clan.
>>1059436Can we still send a second team after we decide where Seeker goes, or do we need to decide now? Chances are, civilian transport would be fine.
>>1059533I feel like the civilian transport depends on who we send and where
>>1059416I think we can split into 2 teams of threeSeekerReinMercyTracerMcreeWinstonTorb and Bastion remain at base for construction and defenseAs for my vote> HanamuraI'd rather that Japan not be controlled by a shadowy crime syndicate, makes it harder to stop them in the future
>>1059549>Leaving the guy who hates omnics alone with the only omnic on the team
>>1059520I'm not hearing bromance being completely out of the running~
>>1059549I think we should leave Winston back at base, too. Otherwise, I agree.
>>1059549You want to have the talking gorilla in the middle of building a satellite, something we really need, to leave the base, when were a bunch of vigilantes?
>>1059553It's not like we're trapping them in the same room until they become friendsBut maybe, swap bastion for winston
>>1059397>In Rio de Janeiro, anti-corporate unrest continues to rise. Vishkar Corp is rumored to soon announce plans for new developments that will involve demolishing houses in the favelas and poor neighborhoods. The outspoken musician Lucio has already raised vocal objections on the people's behalf.I kinda want to interrupt a Shadowrun fight between Lucio and Symmetra.
>>1059560us and lucio have so much goddamned sinergywe both got to go fastwe both hate mega corpswe both can wall climb(kinda)
>>1059565>Athena wants Winston to get out of his lab>We can't take him anywhere because he's a fucking gorilla
>>1059568A team needs it's tankI'd rather the sattelite be delayed than leaving a team with 2 damage dealers and a defense.
That makes my count 10-8 for Hanamura as the primary mission, I'll call that there.
Japan is the important thing. Normally you have some sympathy for other criminals, but the Shimada clan is out of control. Something needs to be done about them. It also would be a good opportunity to find out what happened to Genji, and get him on the team. Maybe you'd even run into his brother Hanzo, who's apparently an archer of unparalleled skill. Might be awkward trying to have both brothers on the team, though, after that whole I-killed-you-because-dad-told-me-to thing.You'd also really like to check out that signal in Antarctica, though. Winston is still busy working on his satellite, but despite that, you have enough agents to send out two smaller teams at once. However, you still only have one plane.Perhaps you can use the Aurora to check out Antarctica, while you use civilian transport to send a team to Japan. Although that rules out Reinhardt for the Japan team, as you have no idea how to disguise that man. And Tracer's still the only one here who can pilot the Aurora.>Take a team of disguise-capable agents to Japan while sending Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora.>One thing at a time. Just focus on Japan.
>>1059647>Take a team of disguise-capable agents to Japan while sending Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora
>>1059647>Take a team of disguise-capable agents to Japan while sending Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora.

>>1059647>>Take a team of disguise-capable agents to Japan while sending Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora.Ourselves, Mercy (eat your heart out Gency shipping trash), and Torbs can go grab the Shimada brothers.Let's send Tracer some backup, too--Bastion and Rein, just in case things get hairy.
>>1059647>>One thing at a time. Just focus on Japan.Mei is more likely to keep. Maybe we know some smugglers who could take them to Antarctica and keep their mouths shut, no questions asked?
>>1059647>>One thing at a time. Just focus on Japan.I'm not a robot
>>1059677Switching to this
>>1059647>One thing at a time. Just focus on Japan.We are still a small team. we finish one good then we can go for the other.
>>1059647>Take a team to japanGency here we go

Mmm, I love me some delicious ties.
OK, calling it there, 2 teams has a slight edge.
>>1059647>Take a team of disguise-capable agents to Japan while sending Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora.Japan:SeekerMercyTorbjornAntarticaTracerReinhardtMcreeBase:WInstonBastion

>>1059756Ourselves, Mercy, and Torbs for JapanFor Antarctica--Tracer, Rein, and Bastion.Is McCree still injured? We should keep him back at base just in case. And of course, Winston still needs to build that satellite of his.
You go back and forth on this, but in the end you decide to send Tracer to Antarctica in the Aurora, while you go to Hanamura. You have enough agents to take with you that you'll be fine, even though it might be weird doing your first mission without her. Winston should probably stay behind to keep working on his satellite. That means you can probably afford to send Reinhardt with Tracer. He can't come with you, after all -- getting the big man incognito through a Japanese airport would be impossible.Assign agents:Japan:SeekerAntarctica:TracerReinhardtWatchpoint:Winston>Bastion>McCree>Mercy>Torbjorn
>>1059764Yeah I wasn't sure about Torbjorn or Mcree.>>1059768I just didn't know if the cold would be good for Bastion.

>>1059788yes, we should tell her that

Hell, there's a goddamn Onium in Siberia probably producing new production Bastions, so Zarya's having a fun time disassembling them.>>1059769Still going with this selection>Japan: Mercy, Seeker, Torbjorn>Antarctica: Reinhardt, Tracer, Bastion>Gibraltar: Winston and McCree
>>1059769Mercy and mccree to japan, bastion and torbjorn stay at the baseIf i remember correctly, torbjorn's still recovering
>>1059769JapanSeekerMercyMcCreeAntarticaTracer ReinhardtTorbjornIf its an abandoned base in Antarctica, we might need Torbjorn to engineer a way in. Also, he might be better in the cold.
>>1059796>Japan is supposed to be where the disguisable agents go>Wanting to send the dwarf with a giant beard
>>1059796But Bastion can't work without Ganymede.
>>1059793Actually, I'll swap to this from>>1059788Torby needs to get used to Bastion eventually, and Winston being there to oversee it seems like a good time.
You're pretty confident you want to bring Mercy and McCree with you to Japan, while you leave Bastion at the base. The only question is what Torbjorn should be up to. Maybe you'll ask the man himself later and get his opinion. You also haven't had a chance to properly introduce yourself to him, so two birds with one stone there.You'll also have to mention to Tracer that it will be weird doing a mission without her.
(OK, and because we haven't had enough contentious votes for tonight, it's time for one more!)While you're still thinking it over, Winston calls you on the communicator. "Could you stop by my lab?" he asks you. "I've got an idea.""I was working on a side project in my off hours," Winston explains after you arrive. He seems excited. "You call it the Barrier Shield. When I created it, the primary concern was power at that scale. So I took the reactor design from my Tesla Cannon and miniaturized it. It's a device I call the "Tesla Core." And here's the thing. As you know, we engineers love our redundancies. So I made a second one."Winston takes out a spherical containment device, about the size of a plum. Inside is a tiny reactor that crackles with bright blue lightning."I've been looking over the schematics for your Ares M-Tech gear, and how modular it is. Ares Corp made a lot of their tech highly modifiable, so you could use one tool for different tasks, depending on how it was powered. That came in handy when we installed your Ultimate charger."But I think that we can take it to another level. With a little jury-rigging on our part, we can attach the second Tesla Core to a piece of your gear. Depending on what gear you select, it should have different effects. Installed in a weapon, you'd gain access to some form of electromagnetic wave flux, like my Tesla Cannon. In your armor, it would give you access to a hexagonally tesselated energy field, like my barrier.""So ... you're saying I can amp my gear up with either lightning or a force shield?""That's the short version, yes."

>>1059921I'm ready to shinespark all over these fuckers sir.
"Let's get these hooked up to the graviton link in my boots," you say. "If what you're saying about the force field is right, I think I have an idea."You and Winston spend the morning with your gravity boots on his work table, discussing the finer points of gravimetric analysis, electromagnetic field inhibitors, and graviton actuator engineering.The two of you break for lunch. Most of the work is complete, it just requires testing.Over lunch, you talk to Winston about ...>The moon. Did he really grow up there?>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.>Reaper. Voice your suspicions about Gabriel Reyes.>His diet. What does he eat besides peanut butter and bananas?>Something else.
>>1059971>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.>Reaper. Voice your suspicions about Gabriel Reyes.
>>1059971>>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.Talk about the good times.
>>1059971>His favorite ships. Who does he pair together?
>>1059971>>The moon. Did he really grow up there?>Something else."Any fun stories from the old days you can tell? What was the old team like?"
>>1059971>The moon. Did he really grow up there?>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.
>>1059971>>The moon. Did he really grow up there?>>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.>>His diet. What does he eat besides peanut butter and bananas?Its probably as good for him as it would be for humans. Where's his greens?
>>1059971>>The moon. Did he really grow up there?
>>1059971>>The moon. Did he really grow up there?>>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.
>>1059971>>Genji. The two of them were recruits together.And if Genji said anything about the rest of his family, that'd be cool too.
"I'm thinking we might go to Hanamura next," you say. "Genji's probably still there, somewhere. What can you tell me about him? Athena mentioned you two were in the same recruit class?""That's right, we both joined up at about the same time. Genji, Tracer, and myself, we all went through Overwatch "boot camp" together. Those were good times. It's kind of a shame you missed out on that experience. Not that I'm complaining about your performance, you clearly don't need any sort of training, I just mean, er ... it was a bonding experience." He thinks it over for a moment. "At the time, Genji seemed fine, despite what happened to him. He was a rascal. According to his reputation from before the incident, he used to be much more than that. A "playboy" I believe the term is. But even at training camp, with his new body, he still told jokes, chased girls, did his best to enjoy life. It wasn't until later that he started to realize everything that he had lost." "I think that's part of why we became close. All three of us had lost a great deal. We were all strange, outcast in some way. Genji had just become a cyborg. Lena had become un-stuck in time, and it took months of my research to build that chronal accelerator for her. And myself, well ..." He adjusts his glasses. "It wasn't long before then that I had just arrived here on Earth for the first time."(Continued)
"That's right," you say, thinking back. "You grew up on the moon. That's pretty crazy.""Yes ... Horizon Lunar Colony, that was my home. At the time, the proudest achievement of Lucheng Interstellar."Lucheng. Of course. You should've expected that name to come up in a conversation about the moon base, but still hits you like a punch in the gut. You force yourself to stay casual. Not going to go there now. Focus on the conversation. Winston is continuing on. "... with myself, the scientists, and the other gorillas. I wasn't very old before I felt more at home with the first group than the second. Supposedly I exhibited unusually rapid brain development from the gene therapy, so that might explain that.""What happened?" you ask him. "I remember on the news, something about a ... an uprising?" It's probably better to just attribute your information to the news and move on."That's one way of putting it. Several of the other test subjects responded abnormally to the gene therapy. Some had to be confined and restrained. Heavily restrained. Finally they broke free, and ..." He trails off, then shakes his head, avoiding bad memories. "I escaped. Alone. Came to Earth. I didn't know what I was going to do. But Overwatch, they -- they offered me a place where I could stay. It became my new home.""I can see why it means a lot to you," you say. You finish your sandwich and stand up. "Why don't we get back to work, big guy? I think we're ready to test this."

>>1060094So... you're saying it worked? Awesome!
"Okay," you say, picking yourself up off the ground. "Maybe we've got a few things to iron out."
I'm done for now, anons. I'll return on the weekend with your mission to Hanamura. Hope you're enjoying Overwatch Quest, and thanks for playing.
>>1060111Of course we're enjoying Overwatch Quest, the question's almost redundant. So thank you for running, man. Looking forward to that weekend.
>>1060111Thanks as always for running. I hope we finally get our sick ass duel with Genji soon.
Hey guys what sort of build do we have, I always imagined lean and tall.Aesthetic wise do you like tron lines? Glowy spirals? How about our spray? What is projected on our daft punk helmet?
>>1060427I imagined something like an olympic sprinter's build honestly. All about movement and speed.I'm indifferent to the tron lines and whatnot.As for our spray and our helmet projection, I have no real idea.I assume they'd be whatever our logo is whenever we get around to making one.
>>1060427I've always imagined the opposite, actually. Short-ish. Compact. Powerful. Explosive bursts of speed and agility right out the gate, sort of thing.I really like the idea of having some sort of display on our helmet that shows various simplistic emoji-ish faces and whatnot. So we can just have a smiley face on our helmet when we're bantering, or a shocked 'O' face when something unexpected happens. Something along those lines. Probably not going to happen, though.And tron lines feel a little too sci-fi for us, to be perfectly honest. I prefer the more casual look with the hoodie and the helmet underneath and all that.
>>1060111HOW'S THE ELECTION GOING?
>>1060452>>1060433>>1060427It's been discussed in the Discord Server and confirmed by the Ravenking himself that Seeker has a tall athletic build similar to Nightwing (with an ass just as great).. Seeker also has a 10/10 pretty boy face. Furthermore, it is decided that Seeker has a 6 inch long 2 inch wide dick. Not making this up you can confirm it with Ravenking.
>>1060535So can Gengoo, Tracer and Seeker form team ass?
>>1060535Great ass is a must in overwatch

>>1060452I'm OK with an emoji / display helmet, like Zer0 or these IRL Chemions.>>1060512I'm doing something slightly different for Seeker's parents. I planted a seed for it this session.>>1060535Pretty sure all I said was that Seeker was "fit af" and "Nightwing-esque", the rest is shit you guys made up. That said, I'm OK with the results. No reason Seeker can't be hot. >>1060608Your initial "fitness evaluation" to see if you could join the team was Tracer checking you out on the way back to base.
>>1060992PHARMERCY IS A GO
>>1060083>Lucheng. Of course. You should've expected that name to come up in a conversation about the moon basewell then, guess we know were mom/dad is then
i really want to see us cut loose.using all the cool new things we have now also i just realized something, we are seeker, we've been "seeking" things all of our life. heh
>>1061597Hey, remove Bonfire from the playlist.
>>1061260She likes jap cock you delusional fuck
>>1061706Its a hand crafted, artisan, multi-functional cock with inbuilt vibration now
>>1061714Does it menace with spikes of jade?
>>1060664>>1060683>>1061260>Seeker's breakup with Fareeha was so awful we turned her into a lesbianBruh
>>1063016>Seeker's sex with Fareeha was so awful we turned her into a lesbianftfy
>>1064175Pharah's like 5'11 or 6'1 according to various sources.JUNKRAT IS 6'4!
>>1060921So basically that emoji mask that guy from Watch Dogs 2 has but less spiky?
>>1064180Maybe more Zer0 from Borderlands
>>1064178He hunches over a lot which is why he seems shorter.>>1064180Nah, we've got a full face helmet. We just need to spend some time tinkering with it to get that display.
Not gonna lie, it really seems to me that Tracer and Pharah are the two best choices, closely followed by D.VA and Brigitte. It feels as though None of the other female characters can develop the same kind of chemistry with Seeker as they can.
>>1064773As much as I am on board with any of them, I think you are down playing the odds of a Mercy romance... or we go with a Omnic or husbando.Still, we have more important things to deal with for now.
Roll to see who your waifu is.Might as well do something until the next update.
Rolled 10, 9 = 19 (2d10)>>1064881Fuck it, let's see.

Rolled 2, 9 = 11 (2d10)>>1064881
>>1064946>>1064957The dice gods are trying to tell us something about Sombra...
>>1064962For fucks sake I got the dorito gremlin.

>>1065525>>1065361Oh yeah>Domming MercyWhy can't I get good shit
Rolled 3, 8 = 11 (2d10)>>1064881Fuck it, let's see how it goes
Rolled 7, 1 = 8 (2d10)>>1064881Well, it can't hurt to try
Rolled 7, 7 = 14 (2d10)>>1064881Here goes
>>1064881what has this quest come to?
>>1066650The same fate as most.Waifus.Hope for a swift update to grant us a reprieve from this latest shame.
>>1066684Raven said that next update is comin on the weekend so sit tight.
>>1066688Fuck sake, man, Op starts updating as soon as something good comes up my life.
Anyone else think Seeker should have an Overwatch Longcoat in the same style as Morrison's? It strikes me as something thematically appropriate.Does anyone else on the team know our real name?Also, Raven said Seeker is "pretty as fuck" right? Anyone want to share some art for his face?
>>1067001Don't think we should have the coat since it would go against Seeker's whole thing of being agile and moving around. Loose clothing doesn't fit him.For his face/body just imagine a slightly worse version of Nightwing
>>1067016Why's he need to be worse?
>>1067019Let's just go full hog with it.
>>1067032We could also be dapper as fuck.That'd be an interesting juxtaposition actually. Seeker dresses quite formally when in civilian clothes. He just likes looking dapper.
>>1067036Pic related is about as far as I think he'd go to dress in a professional manner.
>>1067056Ah, but he's done Shadowruns against corps, right? That could call for disguises."No one looks at you twice when you wear a suit in a corp building."
>>1067058Even better, a janitors uniform with a little bit makeup to darken up the skin, hell I'd bet most would assume he didn't speak english with a disguise like that.
>>1067064Nah. As someone who has worked in high security buildings, Janitors Actually get some pretty impressive security screening. That, and Security was on good terms with the Janitorial Staff so they'd notice if a new guy showed up randomly. But that was just that building.I just want a dapper Seeker dammit.
>>1067077We'll probably get a chance to decide our outfit if we ever end up dating one of the crew.
>>1067077This. I work at a real high up fortune 500 corporate offices doing IT. Everyone's required to wear a name badge with your photo on it, and the badge has an rfid chip in it with all your info.Everyone knows the security staff on an appearance if not name basis, same with the janitorial staff. If I needed to infiltrate? I'd create a fake identity and get legit hired on the kitchen staff. Nobody questions those guys if they're pushing around a catering cart. Clearly a meeting ran long and a VP wants drinks and snacks.
>>1067135Oh and they also get loading dock access. Very important for shadowrunning.
>>1067086We're probably going to spend some time in civilian environments. When we do, we should dress formally.
>>1067195Not too formally, Maybe adopt a somewhat gray man approach.
>>1067202See >>1067036That's dapper.
>>1067206I personally just can't get on board with it.
On another note, how did we learn to fight with a sword?Did we never receive formal training and we've been winging it this entire time? If that's the case, do we want to train with Genji?
>>1067219Seeker learned his moves from all the martial arts films he watches, except he made it work.
>>1067254What, the flashy stuff explicitly made to create a show?
>>1067260Why not? Hell, with his moon shoes Seeker can basically recreate literally ALL the wire-fu ever!
>>1067275Eh, why not. But we need to upgrade our Moon Boots to a full suit of armor so we can pull off bigger stunts.
>>1067219Train with Genji, please and thank you.
>>1067478Isn't Hanzo a better swordsman though.
>>1067692That's one thing I heard: Hanzo is the better swordsman, while Genji is the better archer. The two of them swapped weapons specifially as a self-handicap.
>>1067775I'd like to think that because it's been so long since they swapped, they are now better than their counterpart at the weapon they switched to.
>>1067692He's better but has refused to use a sword ever since he fought Genji
Rolled 6, 8 = 14 (2d10)>>1064881I actually have time to shitpost here
>>1067692YesHe just got some minor atonement issues and refuses to use a sword after the Xbox incident
>>1067001Seeker would have a fanboy moment if he were to find Morrison's old longcoat in the Watchpoint storage rooms.
>>1074349And then Tracer walks in.I'm not a robot
Rolled 8, 6 = 14 (2d10)>>1064881I am so late it isn't even funny
