This quest takes place in a hyper-simplified version of the DC Universe, where all your favorite iconic heroes, villains, vigilantes and vagabonds reside. Because of the incredibly complex nature of DC’s existing collective Intellectual Properties, this universe is a neutral, baseline interpretation. This means explicit redundancies, clone characters and multiverse shenanigans will be removed almost altogether.You will be playing as Rick Regal, a 16 year old high school sophomore who has just moved to Central City with his father after his choosing to relocate for work. Rick’s path down the road to heroism, villainous conquest or burger flipping normiedom is entirely up to you.>RulesYou will be given prompts to vote over Rick’s actions and decisions in order to influence his path, and particularly challenging actions will require dice rolls and a collective mental capacity superior to that of a rock. Write-Ins are allowed and encouraged, but I am not obligated to use them.Voting lasts until 10 minutes after initial prompting. Whatever gets the most votes goes forward. After rolls are prompted, only the first three will be counted.>Dice1d100, Difficulty Checks intentionally obscured.No successes results in failure, one success results in a minor positive outcome, two successes result in a major positive outcome, and three successes make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. There are no critical successes, but critical failures result in a removal of a success.
You’re just out of the blast radius when that jetbike impacts with the force of a small meteor-- the shockwave knocking you out of your run and sending you rolling and sliding across rough terrain. You hit a car with enough force to make a you-shaped dent, but luckily your invulnerability was active on impact. Your vision is blurry for a moment, but after shaking off the stars you can see Desbro intersection has been reduced to a flat plane-- the only shape standing tall is Lobo.And he’s missing an arm.You can’t help but grin. You. Fucked. Him. Up.That smile is short lived, however, as you notice the arm start to grow back. What the hell is this guy!? How do you beat him? Well, it’s not like you’ll ever get the answer, because he tosses a crimson glare over his shoulder.“Gotcha.”Lobo aims that blaster of his over a shoulder and fires. You don’t have time to dodge. You don’t have time to build enough energy to activate your power. You’re going to die.But then, you’ve suddenly got… a star spangled ass in your face.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1rBZIzr49k>continued
>>1513850Holy shit it’s Wonder Woman. She stands between you and Lobo, wearing stylized Americana tights and showing more leg than you’d know what to do with, frankly.The heroine showed up out of nowhere a few years back-- claimed to be the warrior princess of a paradise called Themyscira, where they have overcome the evils of man.Everyone kind of wrote her off as crazy until she started beating the absolute crap out of villains with her super strength, speed, durability and skill.Not to mention that lasso on her hip. Now she’s a household name. The Amazon’s golden wristbands glow white hot, having somehow just deflected Lobo’s plasma-wreathed molten slugs.She tosses a look over her shoulder, brow crinkled with concern. After confirming you aren’t in critical condition, she turns her attention squarely on the hitman.“Mercenary! Look around you, at the devastation you’ve caused. End this now. It isn’t worth the lives you’ve put in danger,” Wonder Woman implores, before shifting into a fighting stance, “And continuing this battle isn’t worth your own.”Lobo frowns at his wreck of a bike, or rather, the scrap and handlebar remnants left behind from the impact.“I ain’t in the mood to dance, girly. That fogo just fragg’d my ride!” he exclaims, reloading his sawed off slug thrower. That’s bullshit, obviously. You had nothing to do with him wrecking his ride, but you guess he’s just lashing out.Without warning, Wonder Woman dashes forward, deflecting a storm of blasts Lobo lets loose. She’s able to get in close, sock him in the jaw, then grab his arm and toss him over her shoulder-- slamming him into the ground with enough force that he bounces. Mid-bounce she brings down an axe kick to his sternum, burying him in the asphalt and causing the hitman to let out an ‘Oof!’, spittle flying from his mouth.>A. She’s got this, go help out the two heroes Lobo was after.>B. You should help her. Lobo is almost impossible to keep down, from your experience. Some back up can’t hurt.>C. Get out of there. You were just keeping this guy busy until someone with a chance showed up. You’re out of your depth. >D. ???
>>1513851>B. You should help her. Lobo is almost impossible to keep down, from your experience. Some back up can’t hurt.Assuming we don't fuck up our rolls.
>>1513851>>A. She’s got this, go help out the two heroes Lobo was after.That >D. is very tempting
>>1513851>A. She’s got this, go help out the two heroes Lobo was after.Let's go save some heroes
>>1513879Then... why not take it? I change my vote >>1513878 to D.It's /qst/, it's a mystery box, let's live up to our name.
>>1513889That's...That's a write-in.
>>1513851>A. She’s got this, go help out the two heroes Lobo was after.>>1513889I am pretty sure that D is supposed to be a write in option. Can QM confirm?
>>1513851>D.???I've been gone a while and have no idea what's going on. Let's look at the mystery box together.
>>1513897Ah... I change my vote back then. A it is.>>1513902He just did.
>>1513851>B. You should help her. Lobo is almost impossible to keep down, from your experience. Some back up can’t hurt.QM, any option with ??? is viewed as a mystery option. Just say "Write In"
>>1513851>>A. She’s got this, go help out the two heroes Lobo was after.But if she needs back-up we'll be there.
>>1513851I'm >>1513916changing my vote to A.)
>>1513908>>1513851Oh, write in?Trip him up with shit, environmental hazards.But you know, super speeded, at his face.Distractions!
>>1513910Yeah, QM posted like 10 secs before I did, in between auto updates.
>>1513919>>1513916>>1513910Do you anon think she'd get mad if we super speeded borrowed the lasso so she could just wail on him with impunity?
>>1513946I think it'd be better not to. I've a feeling if we grab that lasso we're going to spill the beans about how fucking amazing her legs look in that outfit.
>>1513946Let's not.>>1513949>"I want you to do things to me with your ass."
>>1513946Fuck auto correct.When do I even use "speeded"?Frequently, I guess.
>>1513955>"I want to motor boat your tits like a man possessed"
>>1513879>>1513884>>1513902>>1513919You pull yourself to your feet, and take a moment to catch your breath. Wonder Woman looks like she’s got this handled, but those two heroes the biker was pounding on earlier might need some help. Your body is one big aching muscle right now, but you’ve still got some juice left in the tank.It takes a second to get your bearings. Your fight with Lobo changed the landscape enough that it’s difficult to remember what direction those two were even in, the piles of rubble and smoking craters the two of you made not leaving many landmarks. It isn’t a problem for you, though.With a moment’s focus you’re able to draw upon that energy in your gut, that pressure, and let it build-- then release it in bursts of straight-shot speed.While you’re searching for the twins, Wonder Woman doesn’t let up. She doesn’t strike you as the type of fighter to give her opponent a moment’s rest until they yield, and you’re very correct with that assumption. Lobo gets knocked around for awhile, unable to take a second to get his footing.You find the twins kneeling beside each other a mile off, the sounds of battle audible in the distance. They’re on the ground, conscious, but weak, the woman leaning on her partner’s shoulder. The man starts, eyes wide for a moment before relaxing as you appear before them suddenly. You should probably work on that. You run so fast it’s hard to see you, and you might give someone a heart attack.“I am Zan, and this is my sister Jayna. We thank you for helping us,” the man introduces himself. You take his hand and help him to his feet, then do the same for his sister.>A. Questions, Questions. Why is Lobo after them?>B. Introduce yourself as Blur.>C. Introduce yourself as ???. (Since anons were unsure about the name they chose for themselves.)>D. Just leave. You know they’re safe now, no reason to stick around.>E.

>>1514063i hate them both, but i hate myself the most for even attempting to give you fucks a good name
I'm okay with most names, I just think Blur sucks.
>>1514076So you want our name to be Oasis instead?
>>1514079No, he wants it to be Vector, obviously.
also supporting vektor
>>1514100I want it to be anything but Blur. Velocity was the first I saw, and since I suck at coming up with names I went with the first alternative I saw.
>>1514125We could be Vector, Blueshift, Phast, Drive, Surge, the Swift... are those good names?
>>1514012>>1514034>>1514045>>1514039>>1514004>>1514063“I’m Vector,” you introduce yourself. Zan and Jayna both size you up, then shoot each other a curious look. You’re suddenly very aware of the fact that a torn up bugs bunny hoodie, a pair of work gloves and a scarf around your face does not an impressive outfit make. Whatever, these two are wearing purple spandex and popped collars, they can’t judge you.“We are the Wonder Twins,” they introduce themselves simultaneously.Wow, that’s… cool you guess. They’re fine. Wonder Woman might need help.And suddenly you’re off, dashing back to the scene of the fight, leaving the twins scratching their heads. You fall out of your hyper speed and stumble to a stop at the edge of the clearing Lobo’s bike’s impact made. The Amazon is trading blows with Lobo now, hitting him thrice for every shot he’s able to land-- Still, you can see it isn’t as one-sided of a fight as it was when you left. After getting a boot to the face, Lobo spits out some strangely colored blood and grins, headbutting Wonder Woman and forcing her to give him some space with a big ass boot to the chest. She’s sent flying, but flips in the air so that she’s able to skid to a halt in a crouch. The two titans circle each other, their guards up.“Hooey! You’re really somethin’, girly. It don’t matter though. The Main Man can keep this up forever. I’m not too sure about you,” Lobo quips, chuckling.“You’re a beast,” the Princess responds, unhooking her lasso from her hip.>A. Use your power and tackle Lobo from the side. Gotta help the lady out.>B. Distract Lobo by making some noise, and get ready to dodge.>C. Wait and watch.

Changing from this >>1514153 to this >>1514163 .
>>1514153I'm pretty sure the QM said that imbuing power into specific body parts isn't something we can do.
>>1514152>>1514162>>1514171Wonder Woman twirls that shining golden lasso at her side, waiting for the man-- no, the beast she’s facing off against to charge. Lobo sneers, and quick-draws his sawn-off, firing an array of those searing plasma shots. Wonder Woman gracefully cartwheels and twirls, avoiding every single shot. You can see the unyielding focus in her eyes, the determination. Vibe was a hero, and you saw him fight and decided to help him out. Thing is, he seemed to split his attention between showing off and taking down the bad guys. The Wonder Twins were fighting for their lives and each other, so you saw a bit of that determination in their eyes as well. But this woman is an entirely different animal.Lobo grows frustrated and holsters his weapon, then charges at the Amazon at full speed-- something that even you are a little impressed by. He closes the distance in less than a second, but Wonder Woman is able to wrap her lasso around him, spin away from his charging grip and end up holding a taught golden thread keeping him contained. He struggles, trying to power out of it, but the lasso keeps his arms at his sides.“I am Princess Diana of Themyscira.Amazonians do not fall to beasts,” Wonder Woman proclaims, before pulling on her lasso, causing Lobo to slam into a nearby vehicle. She tugs it again, dragging him along the ground so that he’s kneeling before her. “We tame them,” she finishes, before placing a boot on his shoulder. You notice the lasso is glowing brighter and brighter as Lobo struggles, and he’s just not able to get out of it.…You softened him up for her.>A. Well that was fun. Time to go home and sleep forever.>B. Approach Wonder Woman. >C. See if you can speed by and take Lobo’s gun.>D. ??? (Write-In)

>>1514362I think it's mutually exclusive m8.
>>1514369>>1514375well if it exclusive talk to wonder woman
>>1514362Wonder Woman has Lobo subdued, but you get the funny feeling he might try something with that weapon of his. That and it might be really cool to have. You let the energy within you build, then let it burst forward-- taking you with it, the edges of your vision blurring as you activate your hyper-speed. You dash past Lobo and tug his gun out of its holster, then fall out of your speed, skipping and sliding to a stop. The Amazonian Princess eyes you, the weight of her stare giving you pause.Her stern features suddenly soften, and she nods in your direction.“Thank you. I do appreciate the intention. Disarming him is wise-- something I was going to do in a moment anyway,” she says, full lips pulling into a smile. “Now please, give it here,” she tells you, holding a hand out for you to give her the gun.>A. You think you’ll hold onto it, thanks.>B. Give her the weapon.>C. Write-In
>>1514290>C. See if you can speed by and take Lobo’s gun.IF I am remembering correctly, he can set it off like a bomb if he wants to, probably when she gets close enough.
>>1514408>B. Give her the weapon.
>>1514408>B. You think you'll hold onto it, thanks.We'll bury it in the backyard, like a dog!
>>1514408>>B. Give her the weapon.
>>1514408>B. Give her the gunmaybe try to get on her good side
>>1514408>A. You think you’ll hold onto it, thanks."I think it might be safer if I hold onto it. Seeing how this guy fights, he can probably detonate it, and I can probably get it out of here faster. Once you confirm that it won't go Little Boy, I will be more than happy to give it to you."
>>1514408>>B. Give her the weapon.Guess heroes don't do the trophy thing nowadays huh.
>>1514426It's wonder Woman, all her sides are good.
>B. Give her the weapon.
>>1514408>B. Give her the weapon
>>1514435Unless you're Ares or Hades.
>>1514451I meant physically Anon. Joke. Over head.
>>1514481Nah man I get the joke but she put the two in head scissors once I believe.
>>1514484Not a bad way to go, if you're into that kinda thing.
>>1514420>>1514424>>1514426>>1514429>>1514434>>1514439“You think you can keep the Main Man tied up!? When I get loose, I’m gonna drag ya, I’m gonna crag ya, and then I’m GONNA FRAG Y--” Wonder Woman shuts him up with a sharp kick to his face, which doesn’t actually seem to hurt him physically so much as damage his pride. The guy was riding high a little while ago. That has to suck.You walk over and hand the weapon to Wonder Woman, who immediately crushes the barrel in her iron grip. You watch as she lets it fall to the ground, and silently lament the loss of the cool ass plasma slug-shot, even if it did almost kill you about thirty times in the past hour. You glance at Lobo, and he’s got the same expression on his face. In that moment, the two of you share a brotherly understanding.Then you remember he’s an asshole. “Interesting choice of attire,” The Amazonian remarks, nodding at your torn up outfit. When you look down at yourself you realize most of your torso is exposed-- the gray hoodie with Bugs Bunny’s face on it is mostly burnt and torn to shit. Your jeans look like they were made in the 20’s and got worn every day since, and your sneakers have holes in them.“Heh, yeah. I really need a costume,” you respond, shrugging. “Vector, by the way. It’s nice to meet you.”A gust of wind rolls past, Diana’s long dark hair whipping about for a moment before falling back perfectly. That’s some bullshit, you’ve seen girls have to spend minutes fixing their shit after stuff like that. Must be another power of hers.“Well mannered,” she points out, her brows raised. “That’s rare in the world of man. I am Princess Diana of Themyscira,” She introduces herself. You knew that already. “They call me Wonder Woman.”She finishes. “Unfortunately, I do have to leave. This one pulled me away from an important battle,” she says, tugging on her lasso. Diana nods at you and walks off towards… nothing in particular, then climbs onto something that isn’t there, and puts Lobo in a seat. He’s just kind of chillin’, now.>A. Go home.

>>1514561>>1514563>>1514570>>1514585Those two heroes in purple, The Wonder Twins, have to still be around here somewhere. After watching Wonder Woman fly off in the weirdest way possible, sitting down on nothing with hands on an invisible steering wheel, you try and activate your power-- only to find that doing so brings a sharp pain to your gut, and your legs go dumb. Maybe you haven’t got this thing entirely figured out after all.You use the strength of your own two legs, without the use of the power, to make the trudge through the ruined landscape. You really did a number on the Dresbo intersection. It barely exists, and you only recognize it by a half-buried tombstone of a sign that spells out what this area used to be. Eventually you find the Wonder Twins doing stretches and mumbling things to each other in a language you don’t understand, but when they spot you they both stop and turn and face you. Now that there’s not a murderous biker around, you get a better look at the two.It’s hard to pinpoint just how old they are. They look… wrong. Humanoid, but with sharp ears and skin as smooth as a baby’s, and they’re both kind of short. About a head shorter than you. Zan and Jayna have about the same amount of muscle, the only differences in their bodies being their faces, hair, sexual dimorphism and the symbols on their chests.“Sorry for running out earlier,” you tell them, stumbling over a piece of rubble. Jayne catches you, and helps steady you, and once you’re good she steps back beside her brother.“It is fine. We are used to being ignored,” Jayna grumbles. Her brother elbows her in the side, and she shoots him a stern look that he doesn’t seemed to put off by. “What she means is, we are new to your planet, and have not had much friendly interaction since our landing,” Zan explains. “We are very sorry for the trouble we have brought here,” Jayne continues, “We did not mean to bring Lobo here. We thought this world a good place to hide. Unfortunately, we cannot return home. For now we must remain here.”You didn’t really ask for all this exposition but sure why not.>A. Invite them to eat at that diner you’ve been meaning to go to. In your torn up outfit. Might not be the best idea as far as secret identity goes.>B. Just keep talking to them, ask them why Lobo was after them and why they can’t go home.>C. Tell them it was nice to meet them and go home. They’re fine on their own.>D. Write-In.

>>1514704>>1514705>>1514717>>1514719“Why was Lobo after you two? And what do you mean, you can’t go home?” you ask, curiosity getting the better of you.Zan and Jayna answer at the same time,her quieting down as he continues. “We are being hunted due to our lineage. Both of us were born on Earth, but belong to the Exxorian species. Once we discovered this, Jayna and I set course for our homeworld..”“Unfortunately, upon reaching Exxor-- our home planet, it was revealed that we are royalty. A blood relative who shall not be named was in line to inherit something extraordinary. We were gifted with the shapeshifting powers of our lineage, while they were snubbed,” Jayna continues, sounding sad.“One thing led to another. They hired the bounty hunter, Lobo, to extinguish us. Once we are dead they may inherit the power. We thought we had lost him after coming home to Earth, but he is a very good tracker.”You have to take a moment to take in all this information.“That’s… wild,” you eventually say. “So, when did you become heroes?” you ask.“Heroes?” Zan asks, a curious look on his face.“Yeah, the costumes,” you point out.“These are our normal clothes,” Jayna informs you, crossing her arms.That throws you for a loop. Alright, well if they aren’t heroes, then…“Why did you call yourself the Wonder Twins, then?” you ask.“That is what the police called us after we helped them after landing on Earth a few months ago. It has a ring to it, no?” Zan asks, smiling.These guys are weird.Your pocket starts to vibrate, and you pull out your phone. You got a text from the woman Flash put you in contact with, a date and time set for you to pick up your outfit. You shift your gaze up to the twins, Jayna has a curious look on her face while Zan is relaxed. You get an idea.>End Session.
>>1514797Sorry to cut this short. I've got some stuff to take care of. I'll be on mobile though, so feel free to offer feedback and ask questions.
>>1514797Oi papi don't leave me bb. But nah really man great session, hope to see you again soon.
>>1514802It's fine, QM.Good quest so far!
Oh and you guys should probably work out the costume thing. It'll be locked in next time.
Can we run in a straight line backward? As in literally walking backwards in superspeed. So we don't have to turn before using our power.
>>1514815Think we agreed on this for the costume last thread.Also question Papa, can our LIMBS move just as fast as us and is our reaction time reasonably good? As in the world moves slow around us when we want it to with proper training?
>>1514822Fucking messed up fuck I meant this
I think the costume from earlier looked best with no gold on. I could do with a non skintight bodysuit though.
>>1514829>>1514830Don't fucking judge us we're only human.
>>1514830We should have pockets on the inside of the jacket.Imagine what we could do with some steel wire on hand.
>>1514817You can run in a straight line backwards. You still have to stop if you want to change directions though.>>1514822Your reaction time is boosted when running. You have to be running for your powers to activate. With training, other things are possible.
>>1514834Now this guy is thinking with portals
>>1514834Calm down Agent 47, jesus.
I think something like this, maybe a bit tighter, with the right colour and design would look better. It's probably my strong hatred for skintight clothes on men speaking though.
>>1514834Or a bent golden bat.
With the rest of our costume ofc. Not by itself.
>>1514866It is. As this is a Cape quest. Something skintight is practically a prerequisite.
>>1514830I see we went the sentai route...
>>1514877Maybe a skintight shirt under the jacket, and then some baggier pants in the same colour?
>>1514896Jumpsuit seems pretty meh, to me.
>>1514887>Time Force Good taste anon!
>>1514904It's the one that actually fits the design. Also, don't call that fat kid from class Chow, because that's probably why he gets in those fights. That is supervillain bait 101.
>>1514901I'm really just trying to make the skintight parts less skintight. For me, personally anything other would work. I'm probably in the minority though. Just trying to make a case for alternatives.
>>1514918No I mean the dude's name in the gif IS Chow Yun-fat.
>>1514928I know, and I used it to segue to a point that I wasn't able to make before because I just found this quest.>>1514923Both practically, and otherwise, skintight works best for speedsters. Sleek is stylish, and also prevents drag.
>>1514935But I never mentioned the fat dude...
>>1514942But you posted a Chow. And I had a point to make involving the name Chow.
>>1514935I guess I can see the practical aspect. Of we are going skintight though, black blue and gold definitely looks the best. maybe just black and blue? In the end, color isn't that important to me.
we should choose a symbol for our costume
>>1514989Since we already have kind of a arrow theme going, maybe something including that?
>>1514989Maybe a V?
>>1515006I'm telling you right now every villain is going to make the "Does that V stand for Virgin?" joke and I will never stop.In fact when it gets old I will double down
>>1515006something like this but with different colors
>>1515021"Takes one to know one">>1515026Yeah, exactly!
>>1515006Maybe this, but less shit
>>1515037Even better! We need that drawfriend from the last thread.
>>1515042MSPaint is everyone's best friend.
>>1515044looks like a downwards arrow than the letter v
>>1515054Oh fuck that's good.
>>1515057That's kind of the point. Both the letter, and the symbol of motion.>>1515054This guy gets it.
>>1515054Yeah that's great!
...what's our color scheme?
>>1515054sweet fuck, it looks like a black klan hood.I fucking love it, everyone will know us as the superhero who makes racist or inappropriate jokes.
>>1515067It's supposed to be an arrow but I guess I see the clan hood.
>>1515054That looks great!
>>1515066See here >>1514825
>>1515066Black, blue, and gold
>>1515067Color can fix that.
>>1515086the blue should be darker and i think the gold part should be replace with black
>>1515086noooo, i liked it black, if anything its anti racist cause the colors inverted.Besided, the chest area is blue, if you want it visible then blacks the best color
>>1515090I agree. I was just throwing something up to prove the point.
>>1515096Depends on which design, and the placement on the costume. There were two, after all, and both have blue in different places..
>>1515135B3 looks good
>>1515135I'm likeing D3
>>1515135B3 is the best.
>>1515135I think a mix of all three colors would be nice, if we could find a good balance.
>>1515150Well the images I provided are just images of the emblem by itself.How it would be incorporated in to the outfit is another matter entirely.
>>1515154I think the gold outline is something to incorporate.
>>1515135>>1515021>B2>"Does the V stand for virgin?""Can you not look at my dick when you ask that?"
>>1515135D4 I think looks good with b3 as a close 2nd.>>1515160We need to practice superhero banter.
>>1515164"Maybe if you spent less time on your quips, and more time on your fighting you might've stood a chance."
>>1515194"That line come with a complimentary fedora and katana Sauske?"
>>1515209>Using internetisms instead of actually being clever
>>1514825I really like the white blue
>>1515194"That'd count for something if you could actually fight"
>>1515216>>1515216>Worrying about fight quality when fighting mooks>Using A material on mooksI'll upgrade my material when it's less*teleports behind you*Unless this is Batman. In which case:"You know, the only scary thing about bats is rabies. You're not rabid are you?"
is it past 8 for anyone
>>1515317On the east coast, it's 9:30 I think
>>1515135D3 looks more arrow, and the contrast is nicest out of them all.
The helmet looks fucking retarded otherwise I like the costume.
So, GMT it's 12:22, so EST it must be 6:22. Papa baby come back to us.
>>1516311its 10:41 gmt currently senpai
>>1516311I wouldn't count on the thread starting before the afternoon on the east coast.But hey, I don't know OP's schedule.
>>1516321yeah unfortunately, time zones fucking suck
>>1516335It's pretty easy to remember in the US at least.Everything outside of that though confuses the fuck out of me.
For updates on scheduled run times sprinkled between lots of shitposting, check outhttps://twitter.com/PapaSlinkI'm getting into a rhythm of trying to run once a day in the afternoon, since my nights and mornings are usually very busy. I'm on the east coast of the US, but use UTC because apparently it's easier for everyone to keep track of.
>>1516336i meant more like 16:00 east coast is 22:00 for western europe, but i also dont know any other time zones then mine, east and west coast
>>1516338Ok, 2:00pm PST
Tried putting a symbol on it.
>>1517047Subtle.I like it.
>>1517047It's great man! I prefer the symbol's outline in gold but that's just me.
And we're back. First update in ten.
The three days following Lobo’s bounty hunt and subsequent defeat by yourself and Wonder Woman are filled with aches, pains and a few more late days to school. The Flash helped with clean-up efforts in and around Desbro intersection after returning from his battle in Metropolis, where he fought alongside some big name heroes from across the country. Superman-- the man of steel himself was there, of course, as well as a guy with what you think is a magic ring, Wonder Woman and others all battled an alien starfish creature, and drove it back into space.You informed the Wonder Twins of your intent to help them out by asking the Flash’s acquaintance if she was willing to do so, seeing as you’re a high school student without any real means of assisting them. Other than protecting them from would-be murderers. The curious aliens thanked you, and you gave them the same location, date and time the woman texted you to pick up your costume. Why not knock out two birds with one stone?As it so happens, that date and time happen to be today, a chilly Tuesday, about an hour after your school lets out. Convenient. You’re suddenly struck with the worry that the costume woman might have done some research and found out who you are. You’ve been careful, yes, but you can also think of a few instances it might have been simple to find out who you are or snap a picture. Hopefully you’re overthinking this.You step out of your home and start on the path to school, sporting a windbreaker, jeans and sneakers. It’s a chilly autumn day, much too cold, much too early in the year for your liking. On your walk to school, shove your hands into your pockets to keep them toasty. Saturday was a big day. An important one, not only for the city, as the damage is probably going to screw with how things run in the busier parts of town for awhile, but for you personally. You want to be a hero, that much is true, but what kind of hero do you really want to be? Someone who saves lives, puts on a show and enjoys themselves to the fullest like Vibe? An incidental protector, concerned with themselves as much as those they are compelled to protect like what you’ve garnered from the twins? A true, selfless hero with inhuman determination, willing to do anything, like Wonder Woman?Questions for later. Females are present.>Continued
>>1517361Two girls argue on the sidewalk leading up to your school. One you recognize, Franchesca, from your homeroom. She’s wearing a leather jacket over a black t-shirt, red tights and combat boots, and her dark hair is tied up in a messy bun.The girl screaming into her face is definitely bigger, about a foot taller and twice as wide, wearing jeans and a hoodie. She could probably knock you out if she tried, now that you think about it. You briefly wonder if it’s unhealthy to size people up like this. You’ve been doing it a lot more recently.At any rate, Franchesca does some yelling of her own, but seems to be taking a more passive role in the argument. You’re actually on the road to being on time today, but stopping might make you late again.>A. Approach the arguing girls, see what’s going on.>B. Just cross the street and keep on keepin’ on.>C. Walk right past them.>D. Write-In
>A. Approach the arguing girls, see what’s going on.Time to spill sphagetti!

>>1517383>A. Approach the arguing girls, see what’s going on.
>>1517383>>A. Approach the arguing girls, see what’s going on.
>>1517384>>1517395>>1517403>>1517409As much as you’d like to get your dad off your case and stop being tardy every other day, this situation looks like it requires your attention. You approach the arguing girls, Franchesca noticing you out the corner of her eye while the other girl remains oblivious, still yelling if her face.“You’re a fucking liar, Fran. You mess with people because you think it’s funny. I see you laughing with your friends all the time, probably at the poor dipshits who pay you to do your shitty-- Who the fuck are you supposed to be?” the larger girl cuts herself off, shooting you a dangerous look.Yeah, no, you’ve fought two villains and a mugger in the span of a week and some change, this isn’t phasing you.“Rick. Hi,” you respond casually, taking a hand out of your pocket to wave at her. You shove it back in, then look between the two girls. Franchesca is just kind of frowning at you, while the other girl is doing that ‘I’m breathing hard and shifting my weight over and over fear me’ thing.“So, what’s with the yelling? I know you’re supposed to be in class,” you nod at Franchesca, who just kind of shrugs in response, before turning to the other girl, “And I don’t know who you are but you sound a little hostile. Maybe take a down a notch?”The girl’s eye twitches, and she steps up to get in your face. She isn’t homely by any stretch of the imagination, just big and tough looking, which she backs up apparently. Now that you’re eye to eye you notice she’s a little taller than you.“Do NOT tell me to calm down! She’s a scam artist, man! My brother got suckered out of three hundred dollars because of this cunt,” she tells you.Franchesca looks around for a moment, looking unsure of what to do with herself, before inching away and walking towards the school.>A. Ask for more information. You haven’t got all the facts.>B. Occupy the larger girl long enough for Franchesca to get away, then head to class.>C. Let the larger girl know Franchesca is trying to get away.>D. Write-In
>>1517452>D. Franchesca, is that true?Draw her back into the conversation.
>>1517459Backing thisDon't let her back away, we'll have to chase her then and risk going hyper-speedy.
>>1517459>D. Franchesca, is that true?Good idea
>>1517459>>1517463>>1517465“Hey, Franchesca,” you say, getting the attention of the girl trying to sneak off. “Is she serious?”The girl in the leather jacket stops in her tracks and tosses her head back in frustration, the messy bun atop her head bouncing. She turns and walks back to join you and the larger girl, whose name you ask.“Sam,” she responds, before shifting her gaze to Fran. “Look, I provide a legitimate business,” Franchesca starts, “It’s not my fault he wasn’t happy with the outcome. He got what he want-”“You can’t tell the future, bitch. Just give me the money back. My brother’s an idiot, and we’re poor as dirt. Don’t take shit from people who don’t deserve it,” Sam interrupts, shoving Fran’s shoulder, who very obviously over exaggerates the force, stumbling back a few steps.“Ow,” she mumbles, rubbing her shoulder, looking at you. When you don’t react, she frowns and turns her attention back to Sam. “He paid to know what was going to happen in the next few days, and it happened. I’m not going to apologize for telling him the truth. ‘Sides, I already spent it all.”The large girl is getting red in the face, and looks like she’s about ready to start throwing punches.>A. This is getting a little too desperate housewives for your liking, tell them to play nice and get your ass to school. You’re already late.>B. Tell Sam to cool it, it sounds like Franchesca is right.>C. Tell Franchesca to get Sam the money, it sounds like she jipped this guy out of his cash.>D. Write-In
>A. This is getting a little too desperate housewives for your liking, tell them to play nice and get your ass to school. You’re already late.
>>1517509>D. Ask what Fran predicted and ask Sam if it came true
>>1517519This we can't flake out after we brought her back into this
>>1517519supporting thisalso definetely not helping this guy get his money back, his own god damn fault if he got scammed like a retard
>>1517509>>A. This is getting a little too desperate housewives for your liking, tell them to play nice and get your ass to school. You’re already late.
>>1517519>>1517522>>1517524Instead of taking sides, you decide to gathering a little more information might make the situation a little clearer-- even if you’re progressively getting later and later. Your dad is not going to like this.“Alright, bring it down, the both of you. Franchesca, what’d you see in this guy’s future?” you ask, feeling a little silly. “He gave me three hundred to find out if his parents were going to get back together, and also a general idea of his future.I said no and that I don’t see anything positive in his future,and that there’d be an accident if he didn’t stay out of city center this weekend,”The shorter girl answers. She tugs at the sleeves of her leather jacket idly, glancing back at the school every so often.Before Sam can interject, you ask, “And have his-- your parents gotten back together?” “No, fuckface, thanks for asking. They’ve been apart for a year. They met a week ago to talk about the house and how to pay for it, so my brother probably got all hopeful like the idiot he is,” Sam answers. “It doesn’t mean he can spend our money on nothing.”Oof. You clear your throat, and take a second to think about what the second half of that fortune meant. You doubt she’s psychic, but the fact that she had an idea of city center-- where Desbro street and the battle took place might have been unsafe is a little off putting.This is getting complicated. >A. You’re really, really late. Get to school. >B. Tell Sam if her brother isn’t mentally challenged, then you’re sorry but it sounds like Franchesca did exactly what she was paid to do and didn’t take advantage.>C. Tell Franchesca taking advantage of Sam’s brother was wrong and that she should give the money back.>D. Write-In.
>>1517571>B>A Come on Franchesca lets go we are late
>>1517571Eh, nothing more I can see.>A. You're really, really late. Get to school.
>>1517571>>B. Tell Sam if her brother isn’t mentally challenged, then you’re sorry but it sounds like Franchesca did exactly what she was paid to do and didn’t take advantage.>D. Franchesca quit taking money from kids and other students
>>1517047The gloves, jacket, and boots on that costume look pretty gay when combined with all the other skintight parts
We need more friends and if she can see the future she will be really helpful
>>1517600Yeah well it's YOU who's the faggot for looking too much into a fictional characters state of dress.
>A. You're really, really late. Get to school.Do we really want to spend more time on teenage drama?
>>1517571>>C. Tell Franchesca taking advantage of Sam’s brother was wrong and that she should give the money back.Scam artists suck man, but we do need to bail.
>>1517585>>1517594>>1517596>>1517631You’ve come to a decision. It’s not like you’re the arbiter of truth, but median is needed in this situation, otherwise it might devolve into Sam getting violent. You turn to the larger girl.“So, unless your brother is special, or really young--” you start, before Franchesca interrupts you.“17 and up, I don’t tell the futures of anyone younger than that,” she chimes in.“Okay, well, if he isn’t mentally challenged than it sounds like she didn’t do anything explicitly wrong. Let her do her thing,” you tell Sam, who yells in frustration. She stomps off, pulling an ancient-looking flip phone from her pocket and dialing a number. Franchesca watches Sam leave, her nose crinkling for a moment. She turns her attention to you, and smiles brightly, dark painted lips frame pearly whites, and she’s got dimples. “Thanks so much. I thought she was going to hit me or something. You’re in my first period, right?” she questions, but you’re already jogging to school.**When you get inside and spot a clock, it’s already second period. You missed an entire class dealing with that little debacle, and while you are satisfied with the conclusion, you still feel a little bad for that Sam girl. You know what it’s like for your parents to be separated, even if her’s split by choice and yours by tragedy.In any case, you go through the day normally. In the classes you have with Franchesca, you notice her looking your way frequently. When your eyes meet, she smiles and waves, which you reciprocate a few times. Helping her out got you on her good side, apparently. The rest of the day goes by, but Cisco is nowhere to be found at Lunch, nor after school. Franchesca spent her lunch with her group of friends, and you just kind of spent the time sipping watered down apple juice and reading up information on heroes around the world. Apparently Aquaman can speak to fish. After school, you stand out front in the chilly September air, at the gates of the school. Students mill about, walking around you and chattering to each other about nothing in particular. You pop your earbuds in and play some music, drowning out the noise. Alright, time to get to business.>A. Go to the meeting place Flash’s contact texted you about. It’s time to get your costume, not to mention help out the Twins.>B. Try and find Franchesca in the sea of students.>C. Try and find Cisco in the sea of students, even if you haven’t seen him today.>D. Write-In

>>1517657>>A. Go to the meeting place Flash’s contact texted you about. It’s time to get your costume, not to mention help out the Twins.
>>1517682We have to make a good impression if we want continued help from the flash and friends.
>>1517682You forgot to add liar and cheat in there anon.
>>1517714>>1517682Guys don't fight, we all know Cisco is best girl.
>>1517722Hah. Second best. Wonder Woman is true best girl.
>>1517736Ah, too true, too true. But! Let us not forget... Boob Window!
>>1517714How the fuck is she either for all we know she is psychic her reading was correct and he knew full well what he was paying for
>>1517745This man speaks the truth, boob window is best girl
>>1517674>>1517683>>1517685>>1517692You decide to head to the meeting place Flash’s contact, the costume woman as you’ve come to calling her in your head, texted you about. The address is located near Danville, a middle class residential area your dad was looking into until he saw the price tags associated with the housing. Leawood was a decent alternative, even if the streets are a lot shittier in your neighborhood.The walk over is pleasant, even when you tune in to the police scanner app. There are a few codes you’ve caught onto, deciding to learn the more pressing ones and ignore the car accidents and shoplifting incidents. At least until you get your costume, at which point you figure a patrol schedule would be apt. You arrive at a lone apartment building, flanked by a party store on its left and a comic shop on its right. Both are closed. You pull a bandanna from your backpack and tie it around your lower face, then head up the short set of steps leading to the entrance, and push it open to find two familiar pointy eared aliens in purple mumbling to each other in a language you (or anybody else on the planet, you guess) don’t understand. The perk up when they spot you, and rush to greet you.“Vector! Hello! We are here right on time,” Jayna starts, Zan shortly following with, “Hello. Nobody seems to be present.”He’s right, the place is empty. There’s a tiny lobby leading to a set of concrete steps, and before you decide anything, you hear the clicking of heels coming down them.>A. Wait for whoever it is to show themselves.>B. Maybe it was a bad idea to bring the Twins. Shuffle them outside.>C. Write-In
>>1517748Easy there, don't get all excited. Reread the interaction again, where your "psychic" girl tries to play up the damsel in distress. She's a liar. Even if she is psychic, if, she's a shitty enough person to take 300 dollars from a poor kid.
>>1517771>>A. Wait for whoever it is to show themselves.
>A. Wait for whoever it is to show themselves.
>>1517771C. Go up the stairs into the lobbySee what's up, if anything. Bring the twins with us!
>>1517780To be fair, you started it.
>>1517780Nah man, it was over before it even started. In order of rank greatest to least it's WW, Boob Window, and Filthy Gypsy Scammer.
>>1517772>she's a shitty enough person to take 300 dollars from a poor kid.>Kid>“17 and up, I don’t tell the futures of anyone younger than that,”>Sam did not dispute thisI'm not saying we get with her but you act like she is evil when she hasn't done anything>your "psychic" girl tries to play up the damsel in distress.>Sam is bigger than us and was acting aggressive towards herFound the Autismo
>>1517808>Calls others autistic>Is defending a fictitious psychic chick>probably doesn't put out, specially for white knight faggotsYou sure you ain't just projecting here, buddy?
>>1517818I just said I don't want to date her but it is pretty autistic to just say GURL BAD BC SHE TAKE MONEY FROM PERSON SHE PROVIDED SERVICE TO
>>1517828Yeah but we don't know she provided a service or a scam, and besides, 300 dollars for a fucking fortune is a rip.
>>1517818Also>Using the THIS ISN'T REAL argument on /qst/That is kinda the point>>1517831Ok if it is a scam than she is a shit person but we have no evidence to that effect in fact we have evidence it is real because they didn't get back together and if it is real than she is giving people a bargain for 300 dollars
>>1517844Man, making the assumptions that someones parents won't get back together is easy as shit, and this is Central fucking City! Home to more heroes and villains than I care to name! Seems like a bit of a scheme to me m8.
>>1517853Listen you can assume her powers are fake but don't alienate a potential ally until we find out one way or another ok? That is all i'm trying to say.
>>1517844Okay let's look at the pros and consFran+Future sight or good at cold reading and psychology-Might be a fucking con artist+ Seems to have some manner of ethics if the age limit is accurate- If powers and only uses them for dosh, primary motive might be greed. Bears further investigation.Sam>Judgement reserved until further interaction, but despite being pretty ripped and angry at the time she doesn't seem unreasonable.>Wonder Woman- You will be forever a side piece
>>1517777Heavenly quads confirm and none of your votes matter anymore. Also most of you voted A anyway.>>1517774>>1517779The clicking of heels gets louder and louder, and eventually a buxom blonde woman in a white blouse, a knee-length black skirt and black heels comes clicking down the steps to meet you. She’s got rimless glasses and a confident smirk. Why are all the women in this city so hot?“Hey, Blur,” the woman greets you in that sing-songy tone. You recognize it instantly, the costume woman. The Twins look at each other in a moment of confusion.“It’s Vector, actually,” you correct her, informing her of your little name change. Her lips part into a soundless ‘Okay’, before turning her attention to the two aliens flanking you in their ridiculous outfits. “And who are these two?”“Zan,” The brother introduces, “And Jayna,” his sister follows up. “We’re the Wonder Twins!” they both announce, smiling wide with pride. You briefly wonder why you even invited them-- Right, they need your help. Luckily, the blonde seems amused by this, smiling politely.“It’s nice to meet you both, and it’s nice to meet you in person Vector,” the woman says cheerily. You note she neglects to tell you her name, and figure that was probably intentional. The blonde nods to the stairwell, and leads you up a good fifteen flights of steps, all the way to the top of the building. You built up a little sweat on your brow by the time you’re at the top, but the Twins seem unaffected, as does the blonde woman. Maybe you should start going to the gym.The woman leads your group through one of the apartment doors, and you enter a small, carpetted living room, mostly empty save for a large black case and two chairs. The woman smooths her skirt out, and takes a seat on one of the chairs, then motions for you to take the other.>A. Sit.>B. Offer Jayna or Zan the seat, you’d rather stand.>C. Scope out the perimeter like you’ve seen guys in the movies do it. This might be a trap.>D. Write-In
>>1517873>>B. Offer Jayna or Zan the seat, you’d rather stand.
>A. Sit.Ask why there's only one chair too. Is she just used to giving one on ones?
>>1517884Bit late bruh
>>1517873>>A. Sit.I don't think franchesca is evil or anything but shes a shitty person and i regret we interacted with her at all.>>1517879She was just expecting us only.
well I guess you guys don't want to be gentlemen and off the lady the seat
>>1517873>B. Offer Jayna or Zan the seat, you’d rather stand.
>>1517873>D Say sorry for the uninvited guests but Lobo was after these two so I thought it would be best if they were around other heroes for protection
>>1517899Man we're already kinda fucky cause we didn't tell her we were bringing a +2. Only way to go is down.
>>1517873>Offer Jayna the seat
>>1517899I thought of it as not wanting to break up the set, twins.
>>1517879>>1517885>>1517890You take the offered seat and get comfortable. The blonde smiles at you for a moment, then crosses her bare legs, getting comfortable herself. The Twins whisper to each other in that alien tongue, which you find a little annoying. Costume Woman doesn’t seem to mind, though.“Well then, let’s get started, shall we?” she starts, clasping her hands together. She motions to the black case between the two of you, and you lean forward to undo the clasps, then push it open. The first thing that catches your eye is the helmet. It’s a stylized representation of what you had in your drawing, but frankly you like this better than the sketch. It’s a dark blue, with a brighter blue arrow lined with gold acting as a tinted viewscreen.The rest of the outfit is pretty identical to your specifications, a tight jumpsuit, black and blue with gold linings, with a little stylized arrow insignia is folded up inside. You pick it up and find the darker material is almost impossible to get a hold of unless you squeeze tight, while the blue portions are a little more manageable.“It’s a special material, helps fight friction,” she clarifies, then motions for you to examine the rest of the costume. The motorcycle jacket is there, styled similarly to the tights, with arrow designs down the sleeves. You feel small hard plates built into the chest, and you guess that’s the bulletproofing you asked for. There are pockets on the inside as well. It isn’t perfect, but you aren’t going to complain. A pair of gloves and boots complete the set.“It’s amazing,” you say, your eyes conveying a grin your concealed face cannot. Thing is, there are a few other objects in the suitcase.>A. You see what looks like an extendable baton.>B. You see what looks like a gilded belt.>C. You see what looks like a watch.>D. Nevermind, the costume was the only thing in the case.
>>1517808>“You can’t tell the future, bitch. Just give me the money back. My brother’s an idiot, and we’re poor as dirt. Don’t take shit from people who don’t deserve it,” Sam interrupts, shoving Fran’s shoulder, who very obviously over exaggerates the force, stumbling back a few steps.>“Ow,” she mumbles, rubbing her shoulder, looking at you. When you don’t react, she frowns and turns her attention back to Sam.Not autistic, just read a bit more than you clearly.
>C. You see what looks like a watch.THis intrigues me as to what it could be.
>>1517971>C. You see what looks like a watchTime ourselves see how fast we really are.
Is a baton really necessary with our powers? We already hit hard. >C. You see what looks like a watchThis sounds the most interesting to me.
>>1517971>A. You see what looks like an extendable baton.If it doesn't break that shit is OP as fuck.
>>1517983Actually, I change my vote to >B. You see what looks like a gilded belt.I feel our outfit could use a belt...
>>1517971>>C. You see what looks like a watch.
>>1517982>>1517983>>1517984>>1517990LOoks like the watches have it.
>>1517971>C we are late everywhere so it could help
>>1517971>>B. You see what looks like a gilded belt.
>>1518002Nah m8, I changed my vote, >>1517987 but yeah watch has the most votes, which kinda make me sad. Our belt could've had our insignia, or stored our suit or something!
>>1517982>>1517983>>1517984>>1517990>>1518003>>1518008You reach into the case and pull out what looks like a watch, a wrist watch to be specific. The face doesn’t have any numbers on it, but there are hands ticking at a normal pace. The time isn’t correct, though you doubt the purpose of this is to tell time. You cant your head questioningly and jungle the watch at the blonde. “What’s this?” you ask.“Ah, yes. That’s something I wanted to speak to you about. You see, it turns out Flash isn’t going to be paying the bill for this uniform,” she says sadly. You blink in surprise, and she nods apologetically, “I know, I know, I told you he had it covered. I just thought the two of you had more of a connection. The bill is eleven thousand dollars, but!” She quickly holds up a hand, saving you from the heart attack that was about to end your life.“But! If you do something for me, I’m willing to let you have the outfit for free. You see, I’ve been trying to figure out how Flash can comprehend what the hell is going on at the speeds he runs at,” she explains, her voice lilting up and down beautifully.“You’re holding the results of my research. All I need you to do is put it on and keep it on while you’re doing your superhero thing. Your power is similar to the Flash’s, I think, so it’ll do a bit of data collection,” she finishes, smiling cheerily to punctuate the offer.You eye the device, as do the Twins standing over your shoulder.>A. Accept. No reason not to.>B. You’d rather this woman not have access to data about your ability, even if she is a friend of the Flash.>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.>D. Write-In
>>1518059>>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.
>>1518059>A. Accept. No reason not to.The suits more than we're worth so take what we can get.
>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.Flash trust's her, but I still think it sounds kinda sketchy.
>>1518059>>A. Accept. No reason not to.Best to be polite.
>>1518059>>>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.We could have gotten the belt. Although honestly it probably would have fucked us over as well. man, fuck her, we will pay her ourselves later.I'm sure theres legitimate but lucrative financial options open for us.
My curiosity is peaked.>D. What exactly does it do?
>>1518059>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.The best part about caveats, is that they come with really sweet deals.
>>1518106>“You’re holding the results of my research. All I need you to do is put it on and keep it on while you’re doing your superhero thing. Your power is similar to the Flash’s, I think, so it’ll do a bit of data collection,” she finishes, smiling cheerily to punctuate the offer.Its probably a speedometer/speed force-ometer. We can't help her, but she doesn't know that.
>>1518059>A. Accept. No reason not to.>C. Ask why she hasn’t asked the Flash to wear this.As a paranoid giant bat once said; trust, but verify.
The thing about A, is that there are a lot of reasons not to. This feels sketchy as hell, even if we were set up with her by Flash. Since when do we know anything about The Flash's character other than, "He's a good guy." He's suspicious.
>>1518070>>1518079>>1518080>>1518097>>1518107The woman rolls her eyes behind her rimless glasses, and settles back into her seat. She signs, and brushes her hair behind an ear. “Because, Vector, he’s a little insecure about giving away information on his speed,” She says, sounding a little petulant. “Even if this research helps boost the scientific community’s understanding of mental chronometry, Flashy isn’t willing to help. Maybe you are, though,” she says, hopeful. She smiles earnestly, imploring you to consider her baby blues.You turn the watch over and over in your hands, examining it a bit more. It doesn’t seem dangerous at all, and she does sound genuine enough when it comes to her intentions. Still, data collection could be serious. Who knows what she could do with information about your power. Then again, if she wanted to be malicious about it, she would have just incorporated it into your suit without telling you, right?>A. Accept. You’ll wear the watch.>A. Refuse. You can’t pay for the outfit, so apologize and go.>C. Write-In
>>1518127Ooookay....Then why are we helping the Wonder Twins? Aliens? Super suspicious. Wonder Woman? Crazy invisible plane. Suspicious. Clearly we should trust nobody.
>>1518139>>A. Accept. You’ll wear the watch.
>>1518139>A. Accept.Tired of fighting crime is raggedy ass clothes man, we need a proper outfit, if this is how we get it so be it.
>>1518159This. Also, we need something durable. We're bound to run out of clothes if we keep this up.
>>1518139>C. Write-InRefuse, but then mention that the twins need help. Worst case, we do the tests she needs to help them get under some kind of roof not made from one of their bodies.>>1518140There's a difference between trusting shady, back-alley deals, and trusting shady, warehouse, unknown technology deals.
>>1518166What is it? Do you want to trust the Flash or not? The Flash thinks letting the speed be understood is bad. You can't have it both ways, landing on whatever side the tits are on, my man.
>>1518170So, you're willing to ask her for help with alien royalty. The ones that have a bounty on their heads. But not let her research our powers, which by the way we know very little about. Okay.
>>1518139>A. Accept. You’ll wear the watch.
>>1518191I direct you to>>1518186You can't move the goal posts on this one. This seems like a shady move going around big red's back. Either you trust the Flash's judgement on speed, or you trust this woman's.Captcha: Select the images of: Watches
>>1518186I'm sorry. Are you the Flash? Did we suddenly read his mind? We don't know why he's withholding info. Just that he is. He referred her to us. She can help. This sudden paranoia is odd, why did we even bother to show up at all?
>>1518139>>A. Refuse. You can’t pay for the outfit, so apologize and go.Flash said he'd take care of the suit thing for us, i don't trust this whore telling us he flip flopped and have to help her now. we're underage so i wouldn't be surprised if the cunt thinks she can legally manipulate us into doing this shit for her.
>>1518207The sudden paranoia came from a woman wanting to do science experiments on us, something that is scary, and then became angry when we questioned her on it. That's suspicious as all hell.
>>1518234Man it's a fucking chronometer, not an explosive, calm the fuck down.
>>1518234When did she get angry? Her mood was described as petulant. Petulant is childishly moody. Pouting and such.
>>1518256>Man it's a fucking chronometer, not an explosive
>>1518233Wow this sure escalated fast.
>>1518263The point is, you're jumping at shadows. Just wait until Waller shows up, then you can freak out.
>>1518282Shit or Cadmus.
>>1518150>>1518159>>1518166>>1518182>>1518183>>1518195You take a long moment to deliberate, but ultimately come to the only decision that makes sense to you.“I’ll do it,” you say, nodding at the buxom blonde. She’s absolutely ecstatic, and reaches over the black case to pull you into a hug. Your face gets hot at the sudden contact, but she quickly releases you, smiling brightly. The woman stands from her seat and helps you get everything put back into the case, all the while assuring you it’ll fit you, since the material of the tights is very elastic, and PapaSlink retconned it so you gave her your size in the texts.Once you’ve got everything packed up, you heft the cast and carry it at your side. You’re almost ready to start your career as a hero-- The powers and costume a majority of what’s needed, and from what you know about yourself, you feel like you’ve got the right temperament and morality. Then again, so does everyone else.Zan and Jayna wait patiently at your side, smiling at you when you meet their eyes. These two wanted your help, and you promised you’d try. It’s time to make good on your offer.“Oh, there’s one more thing, ma’am,” you say, getting the blonde’s attention. She perks up and gives you a curious look.“These two, Zan and Jayna. They need a place to stay and some help getting back into the swing of things. They’re… from out of town,” you inform her. “Is there anything you can do to help?” Zan and Jayna look at the blonde expectantly, and she offers them a small smile in return.“Hmm… I think I can arrange for that. I know a guy,” she says, committing. The Twins bump fists, grinning at each other, and you are a little relieved about not having to break your promise. After a few pleasantries, you and the Twins leave the apartment building, them having gotten a throwaway cell and a number of someone who runs a decent startup shelter. You prefer what you got out of the meeting, the suit in the case you carry.“Thank you very much, Vector,” Jayna says, almost giddy. “We are in your debt,” Zan continues, just as excited. You let them know it’s no issue, and then say your goodbyes and part ways. All in all, it’s been a productive day. The sun is starting to get low in the sky, cloud cover streaking orange and pink across the sky. You’ll figure out your schedule later. Right now you should get home and try and get some rest. You’ll need it.>End Session.Home y’all had fun.I promise there’ll be a little more action next time. Probably. I'll be around for questions and feedback.
>>1518282If we see Waller, then we already fucked up seven stages back. Even if she is being honest, don't we have a responsibility to protect ourselves here? Do you think having a scientific report detailing our powers out and about is a good idea? I don't think that this trade is fair. Even if the suit is cool.
>>1518291Need confirmation here and now Slink, is the device she gave us basically a chronometer?
So are we gonna say "Holy crap your real!" to Batman if/when we meet him? Since he might be still regarded as an urban legend in Gotham.
>>1518291thanks for running
>>1518311Hopefully not. Batman hates poor grammar.
>>1518233>>1518234>>1518256>>1518261>>1518263>>1518282>>1518287>>1518296You guys are paranoid. It's not like this is an important decision that is going to decide the fate of hundreds of thousands of people in the future. It's note like this is going to come back to bite you in the ass twenty threads of now. No way no how.
>>1518291I had fun, glad the reasonable option won out.
>>1518291On a scale of "research stolen" to "working for Braniac 8" how fucked are we?
>>1518315Eh, it's DC. You sneeze and it ruins the fate of hundreds of thousands.
>>1518315Well that's just usual DM stuff I fucking knew he should've picked the belt
>>1518313Ah, you are correct. Should be "Holy SHIT you're real?!"
>>1518312np bb>>1518311If you want. >>1518318About a 5.>>1518310It's a watch that collects data, didn't you read my poorly written dialogue? Daaaaataaaa.
>>1518326I'll forgive the comma for the enthusiasm.>>1518315Stop making them bite on your plot hooks that could easily have been solved by robbing a bank to get the money. Its not fair to us regular paranoid pschos.
>>1518334Found the villain guys.
>>1518338Or we could have just not gotten a suit, and assumed that we wouldn't be in a situation like facing Lobo everyday. Our regular speed has never done much except wear on the threads of the fabric, a little.
At least i can say i told you so later if anything bad happens. Thats half the fun of arguing in quests.
I just realized. Mirror Master is going to destroy us with our powers. I hope he isn't going to be a main villain.
>>1518346I am leery of ideas that come from aspiring bank robbers.
>>1518378We steal insured money from a bank, we're too greedy. We refuse to take a suit that may result in the death of a goth fortune teller who accidentally saw danger in our future from the research being used nefariously by [insert science company usurped by evil business man], and we aren't greedy enough. Work with me here. TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT!
>>1518378eh, he's just shooting ideas.Im feeling a bit apprehensive about listening to you from your high horse.
>>1518398It's cool, I don't really value your opinion. Other guy was paranoid, you're the one who went a little too edgy with the whore and cunt stuff.
>>1518393For our character to have consistency, so far we're trying to be a good kid, who just so happens to have super powers. Let's be good. Even if the money is insured, still breaking the law and freaking people out. That's how you get in super prison.
>>1518433That was a joke. I just think that going from, "I hope the government doesn't experiment on me, because that would be pretty fucked" to, "this girl seems to not have any ulterior motives, and she has her reasons to talk about a previously unknown, but immense price tag that can be squared away by letting her experiment on me in a way that a proven hero wouldn't allow" is a bit of a character shift in, and of, itself.
>>1518433From there it's a matter of time until you're in a tube at some Cadmus facility. Where scientists suck out your powered dna and make superclones and shit.
>>1518417Thats cause i don't like the double crossing bitch. I didn't try and have our character say that or anything.Thats hardly edgy, i didn't suggest we tie her up, strip her and hang her upside down from a lamp post with the words cheating double crossing slut written all over her body in lipstick
>>1518460And agreeing to voluntary science experiments doesn't meet that same end?
>>1518465Yes, since now we don't have to rob a bank or any other questionable activity to raise money. We then don't get on any super hero's bad side. You think we can take on the Flash on his turf?
>>1518463She hasn't double crossed us yet. If we meet up with her again and get shot by snipers. Then it's officially a double cross.
>>1518479Again, I was kidding.>>1518454Read this ^
>>1518493Oh damn. Didn't even read that one. Was in between my posts. Also making jalapeno corn bread.
>>1518508I get why we would trust her. Their are reasons to, but we shouldn't offhandedly assume that their aren't major red flags just because we got a helmet. I like it as a character flaw that he always wants to help, and he also trusts people in power implicitly, but we can't pretend it was a good choice.
>>1518517Ffs, I hate myself more than you will ever know for using the wrong 'there', there.
>>1518493And I get where you're coming from. Still, the Flash did vouch for her. She's been characterized so far as fairly trustworthy. Let's see where this goes. If needs must, we can smash the damn thing. Or ask Flash himself what to do.
>>1518517Then maybe next thread, we call up Flash or someone else we trust. Ask them. Not like we entered a binding legal agreement.
>>1518527I think that from the perspective of a sixteen y/o a lot of girls are fairly trustworthy on first meeting.Smashing it later would be akin to "damage done, but this feels nice". Barry/Wally would be pissed at someone taking advantage of a kid like that, but we can't posthumously make the better choice now. This, whatever it is, is happening.
>>1518542Can we call up Flash? With our mind powers? Can we talk to someone we trust with knowledge of our powers? Name one.Now that he believes this was the call, and with no one to confide in, we're on a route.
>>1518549Hey now, we're not dead yet!
>>1518566True. Neither was the Black Knight, nor Not Dead Fred. Didn't mean they fared too well, later on.
>>1518571It's still early days is all I'm saying. Too much shadowrunning is bad for your health. So far, this seems lighthearted, but who knows? We might have some Kyle Rayner level shit happen soon. Then it's 2000% paranoia. That guy got fucked.
>>1518579If you aren't prepared for every person you meet to be a villain from a Question comic in the 70's, why even try?
>>1518589Now that's not fair, you can't compare anyone to the Question, but there's still time for us to have his level of baddies. We don't even have a nemesis yet. Also, I really like his stuff in the 80s myself.
>>1518606It really hit its stride, then, but something about the late 70's, when it was so gritty, and oppressive in its art-style, appeals to me.
>>1518615Whatever works for you man, 70s was still Ditkos run with Question yea?
>By the time we actually meet best girl we'll be tied down because anons have no patientsShits rough man
>>1518835But anon, how can we have patients if we're not a doctor?
>>1518835>not the skelefemdeathShit taste confirmed. Are you even trying?
>>1519103>Not thinking upbeat goth Death is betterYour the one with the shit taste not me.

>>1519103>>1519111>>1519161>Not powergirlwhat mistakes have been made...
Does no one want Zantana?shes like the black cat of DC,
>>1520522Honestly most of the DC gals are excellent in my opinion. Doubt QM will allow a harem though.
>>1520522Sure, if you want backwards blowjobs.
>>1520552We have zero reason to want or get a harem.
>>1520559>Zero reason for a harem>All that sweet DC Tier assTake it back
>>1520570Who I'm sure are fine with the idea of sharing their man.
>>1520559Im not really pushing for a harem but i'd be fine with it if anons go for it. besides we're playing a straight guy, thats honestly reason enough.
>>1519424Don't worry friend, when the time comes I'll fight for her with you.>>1520559We're playing as a teenage boy, it's a common fantasy
>>1520608Sure a fantasy but not one we should get.
>>1520552>>1520570>>1520575>>1520575List of females in the DC universe who would be okay with being in a harem:>Harley Quinn...And that's it off the top of my head. Y'all can try and double time someone but don't blame me if it ends up killing Rick.
>>1520608>>1519424Power Girl Waifu Squad 4 Lyfe Nigguh
>>1520627Pity that doesn't include Poison Ivy and Zantana, that would be a hell of a ride
Harley? aww yeah, guess this is happening.Thats an interesting idea though. We could have a Girl as a hero and one as our non hero identity
>>1520636>Cheating on a woman who can turn your dick into a snake>Cheating on an insane plant womanGreat ideas all around.
>>1520646I just want to fuck the aspect of Death who is forbidden to date mortals since falling in love with one leads to their downfall. What's crazy about that?
>>1520646It's not cheating if they all know about it, that's a loving consensual relationship right there, then if we piss them off we'll also have to deal with a pissed off Harley and our trouser snake will come in handy then
>>1520643that sounds like a quick way into an early grave
>>1520666Satan confirms the harem must be made.
>>1520628>>1520627I don't see Starfire on that list QM...
>>1520627I never said try for a harem. Those end terribly. I just meant that there are a ton of great girls in DC, the waifu wars will be insane.
>>1520737How about we just fuck the wonder twins and get it over with.
>>1520800But... they're aliens. They might have... teeth in their beef portals.
>>1520826How would teeth in genitals be at all evolutionarily viable?
>>1520864I don't know. They're aliens, they evolved differently.
>>1520864Lot of rape on their planet.
>>1520887Well then we won't rape them and all the pointy bits will retract for consensual sex.
>>1520887Like a planet full of ducks.
>>1521555>Pregnant Point>Cop-a-Feel Canyon>Bird Booty Call Jesus Hitler Christ I can't stop laughing
Guys I'm sorry about this, but today's run isn't going to be happening. Matters that demand my attention have popped up. I don't like holding off on the Quest for more than a day but life and family take priority.
>>1524437It's cool m8, no problems. See you next time!
Aaaaaand welcome back. First post in five.
>>1528382Love you papi, all's good with the famalams?
>>1528382 A blurred, spinning light arcs through the air just above the roof tops in the distance, visible for only a moment from where you’re perched, before disappearing as suddenly as it came. You kneel atop one of the squat,commercial buildings that are so very common in this area of the city, feeling the cool night air through your tights, feeling both incredibly cool and a little silly wearing your new costume. That watch the blonde woman gave you is firmly strapped to your wrist.It has been a few days since you met up with the blonde woman and the Wonder Twins to pick up your super suit. The Twins are frankly the nicest people you’ve met, even if they aren’t exactly ‘people’ from Earth. Except they are from Earth, but are just aliens born on Earth, but spent most of their lives off world because of reasons? It’s all very confusing. The important things are-- Zan and Jayna are kind, powerful in their own right, and are indebted to you in more ways than one. Maybe you could use that at some point in the future.The tight fitting elastic of the bodysuit makes you feel a little self conscious, though the fact that you’re wearing a completely face obscuring motorcycle helmet off sets that with an underlying aura of bad assery. The blonde woman had neglected to mention the helmet was not only decent head protection and identity obscuring, but also sported a tiny microphone and speaker that distorts your voice. Useful.2 AM, first patrol, and you’re already seeing weird shit. That arc of light is soon followed by an explosion, and a tremor almost knocks you from your perch. You catch yourself and think fast.>A. Activate your power, make your way over to the scene of the explosion and get a look at what’s going on.>B. Explosions? No thank you. Go home.>C. Use your own two legs to approach the scene. No need to rush in all willy nilly.>D. ???
>>1528394>A. Activate your power, make your way over to the scene of the explosion and get a look at what’s going on.Let's fucking go
>A. Activate your power, make your way over to the scene of the explosion and get a look at what’s going on.
Is the justice league a thing yet? You probably mentioned it in an earlier thread, but I'm to lazy to go back digging.
>>1528421They just got together to fight Starro a little while ago. They aren't official, but most of the members are familiar with each other in terms of a working relationship.
>>1528394>A. Activate your power, make your way over to the scene of the explosion and get a look at what’s going on.Let's go for a run
>>1528406>>1528416>>1528433Straight to business, then. You chart out a quick mental route before stepping off the building, window blowing up your motorcycle jacket and causing it to billow during your short fall. That energy within you builds, and releasing it, you disappear the moment your boots in the ground in a burst of speed, negating the fifteen foot drop’s danger entirely. That’s a good trick, one you thought up while sketching out the designs for your super suit. Your hyper-speed dashes are quick, but the fact that you stumble every time you stop and have to re-orient yourself remind you of your status as a novice. Hopefully you can get some training done in the future, but for now-- the explosion is important. You arrive in well under fifteen seconds, and spot what looks like a man with thirty boomerangs stuffed into special pockets all around and on his person lighting up a cigarette, while tens of men mill about him. The boomerang guy saunters over to a downed figure, smoke flowing from his lips as he speaks.“Listen, mate. You aren’t getting anywhere with this.Just ‘cause you got Cold doesn’t mean the rest of us are that stupid.I mean, Crikey--” Really? “-- He screwed up a heist we’d been planning for months because he couldn’t keep his arm on straight. Leadership’s a fluid thing, mate. The Rogues don’t need Cold,” the man says, chuckling. Once he reaches the downed figure, obscured in darkness, you get a better feeling of what transpired. Judging by the smoking vehicle and metal shrapnel spattered about nearby, and the thugs going about their business-- watching the perimeter, keeping the nearby black trucks running (You suppose a few survived the massive heist’s failure) and generally backing their smoking leader up, along with the Australian guy’s ramblings…You squint to get a better look at the downed figure, and notice it’s a man wearing a scorched, torn up Deep V of a costume, with shades and bright colors stained with his own blood. Jesus Christ, Vibe got absolutely blown to shit. Still, he’s propping himself on his elbows, giving the boomerang guy a defiant look.>A. Activate your power, and take out the mooks first. You don’t need them making things difficult while you go after Boomerang.>C. Activate your power, and take out Boomerang first. If what he said is true, a member of the Rogues is going to be dangerous.>D. Sweep Vibe off his feet on a run-by, though you haven’t tested whether or not carrying people in hyper-speed injures them.>E. ???
>>1528488>A. Activate your power, and take out the mooks first. You don’t need them making things difficult while you go after Boomerang.We'll see how tough he is versus two people.
>C. Activate your power, and take out Boomerang first. If what he said is true, a member of the Rogues is going to be dangerous.I was gonna go for A, but if he's standing over Vibe we should probably hurry.
>>1528496>>1528500Next to vote takes it. Either way y'all rolling.

Rolled 21 (1d100)>>1528525
>>1528553I'm confused about this though, the results are best of three, so is this one success and two failures?
>>1528556This guy who’s talking like he’s a member of the Rogues has got to go first. He’s standing over Vibe, who already looks like he’s out of commission, and if you don’t do something, there’s no telling what might happen. It wouldn’t be good, though. You feel that energy well up inside of you, let it fill your being until the pressure is too great to withstand-- then let it all release forward, the edges of your vision blurring, but your laser focus centered straight on boomerang sharp as can be.He’s standing still compared to you, and on your rush by you are able to swipe the cigarette from his hand and strike his chest with a palm, and once you’re out of your speed, you take a second to look over your should to see him sliding back across the pavement, momentum causing him to roll back and onto his hands and knees. Boomerang huffs for breath, having gotten the wind knocked out of him by some invisible force. Thing is, it looks like this isn’t the first time he’s dealt with a situation like this-- as he isn’t panicking like a lot of his men seem to be doing.Speaking of his men, a middle-aged man with rings under his eyes and the look of a mad dog swings at you from the side. You don’t really notice until you feel a knock on your helmet, which takes you off balance but doesn’t really hurt. You regain your footing and square up, then throw a wide, arcing punch at the thug. He easily dodges and punches you in the gut.That one you feel. A lot, actually. The wind is taken out of you, and it takes you some effort not to fall to your knees. Instead of keeping this up, you burst forward with another burst of speed and break a few of the thug’s ribs, his fellow ruffians scrambling in response to seeing that. Vibe looks like he’s recovering, but isn’t back in the fight yet. Boomerang pulls himself to his feel and pulls two of his namesakes from holsters on his outfit, one blinking with a little red light on the tip, the other sharp as a knife.“Flash!

>>1528663We're all guilty mang, she's got those fuck me eyes.
>>1528681Boomerang looks like he’s got something planned, but frankly, you’re fast enough to deal with anything he’s got up his sleeves. You build up that energy and burst forward, attempting to stutter your movements so you can at least try and be consistent with your dashes and not have to stumble every time you come to a stop. You zip back and forth along the road,air displacement sounding booms every few moments, knocking thug after thug out with well placed strikes to their knees and guts. This hero thing is a long easier when you aren’t fighting invincible space aliens on motor bikes.Boomerang grits his teeth, droplets of sweat forming on his forehead as he readies his boomerangs. He watches with increasing anxiety as you systematically take his men apart, looking to all the world like a flickering phantom the way you pop in and out of your speed to stop and turn. Eventually, Boomerang panics, tossing both his ‘rangs at once.The spinning projectile with the blinking light on the end catches your eye after you take out the last thug. It resembles a blurred, spinning light-- much like what you saw just before the explosion that attracted you to the scene in the first place. You act fast, speeding away from the arcing bomb just before it goes off, blowing a pothole in the road and sending shrapnel every which way. Your invulnerability and armored jacket catch a few stray chips of metal, and you’re left unharmed. Vibe seems to have been far enough away that the sharpnel didn’t get to him. Unfortunately, Boomerang didn’t throw a single boomerang. The second projectile-- the sharp knife-like ‘rang, embeds itself in the breakdancing hero’s gut. Oh shit. Oh shit oh shit oh shit.Boomerang turns to book it out of there, but draws another blinking ‘rang just in case. >A. Get Vibe out of there. Boomerang isn’t worth it.>B. Go after Boomerang. Vibe should be fine. He’s a super hero!>C. Hyper-speed Vibe out of there, then rush back and take Boomerang out. You can have your cake and eat it too, though you aren’t sure of the effects concerning taking people with you when using your speed.>D. ???
Why is Wonder Woman so much hotter as a little a girl? I want Wonder Woman to have a Wonder Loli sidekick.
>>1528738You don't want that.You think you do, but you don't.
>>1528736>A. Get Vibe out of there. Boomerang isn’t worth it.LIVES FIRST WE NEED VIBE FOR OUR OWN SUPER GROUP LATER SAVE HIMPROTECT HIS SMILE!!
>>1528736>C. Hyper-speed Vibe out of there, then rush back and take Boomerang out. You can have your cake and eat it too, though you aren’t sure of the effects concerning taking people with you when using your speed.
>>1528736>D. Hyper-speed break BOTH of Boomerang's knees, then go help Vibe. Just because you can't finish him doesn't mean he can get away clean like this.
>>1528736>A. Get Vibe out of there. Boomerang isn’t worth it.
>>1528736>>D. Hyper-speed break BOTH of Boomerang's knees, then go help Vibe. Just because you can't finish him doesn't mean he can get away clean like this.we really need to see how our power interacts with other people. Get some abandoned pets or something and take em for a ride or something.>>1528745Whats the worst that could happen?
>>1528748>>1528774Ok, I'll ask first, even if we COULD what makes you think we CAN break his knees? We don't know how this shit works, I sure as hell don't think we can Guile his ass. Not to mention, what the fuck guys? It's Captain Boomerang, there's no reason to go all Mafioso on his ass. Save Vibe! Protect his smile! We need to be fast for other peoples sake, not to satisfy ourselves.
>>1528786I was actually more thinking 'It's not like he can crawl that far while we're helping Vibe out.' He might still be in the area if we break his legs. And if he's not, maybe he'll think 'Hey, this whole supervillain schtick isn't worth getting my legs broken over.' It's the Batman approach to crime fighting; physical pain as positive punishment to match the Negative punishment of Prison.
>>1528746>>1528754>>1528774You were like five seconds late for the vote.You furrow your brow in indecision, glancing back and forth between Boomerang and the injured hero. You let out a few expletives in frustration,then dash to Vibe’s side.You get a better look at him now that you’re this close. He’s hurt, badly, what with being knocked about by an explosive boomerang. You spot bits of metal embedded in his arm, a few sticking out the right side of his face as well. What really worries you, however, is the boomerang that looks like someone stuck to kukris together buried in your fellow hero’s gut.You haven’t had the chance to learn any first aid, nor do you have anyone else with you who could help out. “Shit, shit shit…” you mutter, your voice changer making you sound a little more snarky than you intended to. Boomerang is gone-- got in one of those black vans and peeled off, so you don’t have to keep looking over your shoulder. “Do I pull it out? No, I think I’m supposed to leave it in,” you chatter nervously, trying to staunch the bleeding with your gloves. It briefly occurs to you that this blood will be a bitch to wash out later.>A. Call an ambulance, and in the meantime, use whatever basic knowledge you have to keep Vibe from bleeding out.>B. Call an ambulance. Don’t bother trying to help Vibe out any further-- You aren’t qualified.>C. Call an ambulance. Ask Vibe if he knows what to do, to walk you through it while the two of you wait. He’s still conscious! Kind of. >D. ???
>>1528811>A. Call an ambulance, and in the meantime, use whatever basic knowledge you have to keep Vibe from bleeding out.
>B. Call an ambulance. Don’t bother trying to help Vibe out any further-- You aren’t qualified.Just don't pull the weapon out, thats all the medic knowledge i got.
>>1528811>A. Call an ambulance, and in the meantime, use whatever basic knowledge you have to keep Vibe from bleeding out.Make sure he can breath right, prevent blood loss and ensure that hypovolemic shock is compensated for in the event of gross blood loss. Ask if he thinks there's any internal damage, any organs. PREVENT INFECTION NIGGA

>>1528835did you really just try to delete a bad roll?
>>1528860I'm going to be 100% honest, I didn't know I COULD delete posts. I just panicked.
>>1528860>>1528869In the future, deleted rolls will be counted as critical failures.
>>1528839Calling upon late night Wikipedia browsing, remnants of the sub par first aid course they forced you to take at your old school, and just a sprinkle of common sense, you get to work. You zip over and undress one of the unconscious thugs, then hurry back to Vibe, pulling out your smartphone all the while. After a quick call, an Ambulance is on its way.Until then, you make sure to prop the struggling hero’s head up with a balled up jacket so he can breath, and use a t-shirt to surround-- but not remove the embedded knife-a-rang, staunching the bleeding without opening a huge wound in him. Vibe isn’t very talkative at the moment, but he does flash you an appreciative grin once you’ve got him as stable as you can manage.The next fifteen minutes are agonizingly slow, not only for the stress, but because you’re starting to get used to getting things done quicker. Your speed isn’t affecting you in the way you’ve heard other speedsters describe it in articles and interviews-- that it makes them feel like they’re standing behind an old woman in line at the supermarket or almost caught in traffic due to the speed their minds operate. It’s more a general sense of impatience stemming from the fact that you KNOW you could get this done quicker.The ambulance arrives, sirens whooping and roaring, and paramedics flood out with equipment of all sorts. You know what exactly two of their implements do-- the bag thing helps the injured breathe, and the defibrillator is for shocking the heart back to life if it stops beating. They don’t use the latter. A few minutes later and you’re watching Vibe get stretchered into the back of the ambulance. You get the feeling something went wrong, here. Sure, you did everything to your best ability, and that was pretty a pretty amazing display, but maybe your actions weren’t backed up with enough wisdom. Your power is great, but with that thug outfighting you and Boomerang being able to get away and injure Vibe as bad as he did? Maybe you aren’t ready.You ponder that for a moment, then adjust the helmet on your noggin.>A. Continue your patrol. It’s late as hell, but that’s when the action is. No school tomorrow anyway.>B. Head home. You’ve done enough for tonight. Look up some information on this Boomerang guy and then get a good night’s sleep.>C. Try and find Boomerang. It’s a long shot, but he’s still out there.>D. ???
>>1528901>B. Head home. You’ve done enough for tonight. Look up some information on this Boomerang guy and then get a good night’s sleep.
>B. Head home. You’ve done enough for tonight. Look up some information on this Boomerang guy and then get a good night’s sleep.So. We gotta train. Our powers, our fight stuff, everything. Tomorrow yeah?
>>1528901>>B. Head home. You’ve done enough for tonight. Look up some information on this Boomerang guy and then get a good night’s sleep.
>>1528901>>C. Try and find Boomerang. It’s a long shot, but he’s still out there.
>>1528909>>1528913>>1528920Without waiting for the paramedics to ask if you’re okay and need assistance of you’re own, you’re off, a blur of blue and black barely visible to the naked eye. You should get home. It’s late, and even if you don’t have any real obligations for tomorrow, sleep would do you a world of good right now. You zoom into an alley a few blocks away from your home, where you stashed a change of clothes and the case you use to store the super suit. After a quick change, you scoop everything up and walk home.Your father was sleeping, but luckily he trusts you with your own key to the house, so coming in late at night isn’t much of an issue. Once up in your room, you drop the heap of stuff in the corner near some still-unpacked boxes, then collapse into your computer chair, feeling some aches and pains now that the adrenaline as worn off. Even if that shrapnel didn’t pierce your jacket, or skin, you’re sure you’ll have a few small bruises on your midsection by morning.You pull up a search engine and start typing away at your dinky laptop’s keyboard, gathering all the information you can about the Rogues. You looked them up before, but it was a much more broad search. Now, you’re searching for specifics, bits and pieces of information you can use to your advantage should should Boomerang or any other members end up opposite you on the streets.Captain Boomerang, much like Captain Cold, is a well known name in Central City. George Harkness, a violent thug from Australia with a penchant for high-tech lonely frisbees. Information on the guy is scarce, but from what little you can pull together, you get a mixed bag. He isn’t someone who’d kill-- in fact all the Rogues seem to stay away from that taboo, and there are a few recorded instances of him breaking away from heists and fights to keep innocents from getting in harm’s way. Still, he’s a criminal through and through, and his rap sheet is as long as Santa’s naughty list.The rest of the Rogues, Mirror Master, The Top, and others, are a little less well researched by reporters and cape-blog pseudo sleuths, so you decide that’s enough for tonight and get into bed. >A. Come morning, have a normal day. You’ve earned it.>B. Tomorrow, you train. >C. ???
>>1528989>B. Tomorrow, you train
>>1528989>>A. Come morning, have a normal day. You’ve earned it.
>>1528989>B. Tomorrow, you train.
>>1529006>>1529013Before you drift off to sleep, you set the goal of training for tomorrow. You awake in your bed, the aroma of bacon wafting through the air. It seems you left your door open a crack last night, and Dad’s breakfast is starting to seep in. You are roused from your sleepy state by porky goodness, and go through your routine. After all the hygine and dressing is taken care of, you jog down the steps leading to the first floor of your home, and see your father sitting at the squat table in the dining room, in front of his half-eaten breakfast.On the other side of the table is your breakfast, which is just a miniature version of his own. No complaints here, you think, falling into the seat and digging in. It’s good, as usual, but just as usual is the silence coming from your father. You sigh and finish up your food, wash your dishes and walk to the front door. You’re going to train yourself, improve upon what your abilities and broaden your skill set so that competency isn’t your only asset. You need to be a Super Hero, not just an average Joe who happens to have powers. It’s time to get good.You turn the knob and open your front door, only to be faced with a cute, perky little goth chick smiling up at you, one hand held up like she was about to knock on the door. “Oh, hey Rick! I need your help. Again,” she informs you, canting her head and smiling that dimpled smile.Why can’t you ever just have a day to yourself?>End of Session
