/qst/ - Quests


You struggle trying to move the metal shackle that squeezes your wrist tightly, no give. Your eyes burn from lack of sleep and your leg muscles are cramped from being locked into place on this transport bus. Nearly a year ago the Authority captured you and stuck you in "The Box" a prison for the most dangerous criminals. The facility got damaged in an escape attempt so here you are on your way to Box V.2 or some shit.

The guy next to you snores lightly, how he manages to sleep with these burning lights above you is a mystery. You lean back and think about how jail time gives you a rare opportunity to reflect. The Authority is a group of 'heroes' who handle crime deemed too dangerous for the normal police, in a way it's an honor to have them dropped on you. Honestly though, was it necessarily needed for them to help stop a...

This sounds exciting.
>>
>>1549956
>>Jewel Heist

May have offed a couple security guards. Entirely unintentional.
>>
>>1549956
Mass murder. Why the fuck not.
>>

Ehhh youre here too!

Yep. It's my chillout time. A little after 6:30 here. Time to catch up on quests.

We D.B. cooper now

>>1550096
But you don't attend Gunslinger? *cries*
>>
>>1550084
Also, what kind of people did we off? mass murder is 4 or more people offed in a very short time. Buncha gang bangers? Juggalos, soccer moms, what?
>>
>>1550104
Nuns. Young nuns on the way to.... An orphanage. That we just burned down.

Also we may have kicked a puppy.
>>
>>1550099
Literally just got on, reading through the bloodbath now broski.
>>
>>1550104
Four Superheroes. Don't see why it's such a big deal, honestly, you aren't a big-shot criminal, after all.

Probably went into a mall or something and just went at it.
>>
>>1550115
Oh man, if Rogue goes for it that would be dope. Merking 4 supers.
>>
>>1550115
Im on the cop-killer train (super-cop-killer?)

Rolled 8, 2 + 4 = 14 (2d10 + 4)

>>1550136
Also... 4 is such a small number. We need more dead nuns and superheroes. Time to roll

Tie breaker:
>Jewel Heist: Few dead guards
>Mass Murder: 4 low level heroes killed

Ok 8 dead supes and 2 dead nuns, with 4 puppies kicked on the way out.

Cali want to choose? Or OP rolling?
>>
>>1550142
I'm all for offing caped crusaders, especially if there's money in it. Nuns though? Where's the challenge? Hunting a guy with x-ray vision, that's fun.

Murder.
>>

We were fighting in a church or smth. Kinda was picturing a big collateral explosion.

>tfw playing a guy who kills heroes and just shrugs like it's no big deal

The most humble villain?
>>
>>1550170
Using bombs to kill 4 baby heroes? A knife or garrotte would be way more fun.
>>
>>1550226
Yeah. Much better imo. Not that I would know of course.

*Gets placed up to #987 in the 4chan watchlist*

So, a mild mannered supe killer? I'm okay with playing a hitter who's very humble and all that. Sounds different.

Mass murder, at least that's what the news called it. You spent weeks scouting out the Junior division of the Authority, some street level brawlers looking to make a difference in your city. You got in easy and left them a little reward for their efforts. The building went up in smoke and flame, only one of them with a special suit survived the initial blast, couldn't have been older than 18. Wavelength floated down on you as you finished the tougher of the 'Power Pals' with a knife through the chestplate, not being equiped to fight a Sonic Superhero you took the smart choice and let yourself be taken in.

You smile thinking about the event, why four super nobodies warrants an Authority response is beyond you but what's done is done. You look around the bus eyeing up your compatriots in conviction, one guy has skin that looks like rock, another has blades under his skin, and the one in front of you is a literal monster coming fully equiped with melting flesh and bone protrusions. These guys are the real deal, you just took out a couple street vig punks and you get here? You wonder how you'd stack up with your abilities some weirdos blade arms versus your...

Naw. I'm thinking more along the lines of Iron Maniac, focus on a nearly indistructable suit that does all sorts of cool shit.

I know. Doesn't mean we can't make shit that can replicate their abilities. Makes it easier to kill em.

Robot suits that do shit? Yeah. Those are less common. Now let me go to /co/ and DOOM post for a few hours.

>>
>talking about replicating powers with super-suit and gear

>not talking about making super-soldier serum in addition to making a super-suit

You should really step it up.

I just never liked the idea of having a suit do all the work. It always ends up being a "doesn't have suit" situation where they just kinda bullshit science up something to escape instead. All your eggs in one basket, yadda yadda.

You think about how his sword arms would handle a few good ounces of good plastic explosive, maybe an acid spraying gun to eat through the metal? Ha, or even reverse magnetic gloves to shove those stupid blades back into his arms. You didn't realize all this time you've been thinking you were also staring.

"Got a problem there, Pal?" Asks the owner of the sword arms

You finally look at his face, cut and scarred all over, his throat has a massive red line from shoulder to shoulder. His eyes burn into yours.

Not like we can't get better at fighting. Geniuses kinda cheat in comics. Prometheus in dc has a helmet that lets him download peoples fighting abilities.

I think the olympian body route ends up evolving into a superhuman physicality route. Otherwise it can't stay that competitive. I just don't want to be squishy.

Why don't we focus on what's actually happening, instead of focusing on something that likely won't happen for 30 threads, if at all?

The computer part is also a bit of a weakness, I think Stark gets hacked once and that could get funky.
>>
>>1550544
It's fun to speculate. And It's like, the third fucking post. We don't have enough to go on to make any decisions about our current course of action. Just relax.
>>
>>1550544
Okay. We are being transferred to another prison, bad guys are in here with us. Nothing wrong with theorizing some mayhem. Guy's gotta pass the time somehow. Maybe something goes wrong, we get out? Where do we go?
>>
>>1550556
What about thinking about the fact that we just got put into the gulak without our main source of powers? No assets or resources other than our mind.

KEK
>>

We make assets. WITH our mind.

You stare him down a few moments before piping up.

"You ever get used to having those things under your arms? Must be really useful until someone brings around a magnet." You say with a small chuckle

He scowls and you see the bulges under his forearm skin struggle and shake.

"My whole damn seat is a magnet. I'm not popping out my beauties anytime soon." He says

>Sucks to suck, freak
>Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be free soon enough.

Do you want us to roll with the vote, or wait until you call for a roll after votes are tallied? I'll roll now just to get it out of the way in case it's with the vote.

As an aside, I'm all for selling this guy out if it comes down to it.

>>
>>1550692
>start a fire
>in the enclosed space of a vehicle
>with you sitting right next to it

That's a fine way to get smoke-inhalation or straight up burned.
>>
>>1550708
Also it would be slightly difficult to start a fire with our hands and feet locked into place. But where there's a will there's a flame.
>>
>>1550708
It's also a fine way to stop the bus, and spend the first few days of our prison experience in a medbay. That place where they keep electronics and chemicals and drugs.
>>
>>1550717
If we steal from the medbay, do it as late as possible and give them less time to find out that we stole things.
>>
>>1550717
This is also assuming the materials on the bus as a whole aren't fire resistant. Which considering where it's taking us and what the contents of the bus usually are it's a safe bet they don't burn easy in case there are dudes who do fire things.

Or they just have a fire-retardant foam system in place.

>thinking the medical ward of a supermax for supers is any more easily accessible to resources as any other part of the prison

We'd still be locked down, just in a bed instead of a cell.
>>
>>1550717
I can pick up what you're putting down. Which is why I wanna figure who is limited how. If flesh melter, or rock guy aren't as bound...we just need to assemble the pieces, then knock em down.

"I'm sure you'll be free sooner than you think, in fact maybe here in less than 5 minutes if you listen to me." You say quietly

"What are you thinking, Mr?"

"Not important right now, these bracelets they have us in. Yours must not be metal if you're able to move your arms at all. Position your arms over your head pointing towards the back of your seat. You'll have to bend pretty low or try very hard to get your head beneath your forearms but the pull of the magnets will pull the blades out and into the seat disturbing the circuits of the electro-magnet letting you cut through the plastic toy on your wrists."

You say this slowly and clearly to make sure he doesn't put a blade through his own head. He nods and sits back. You see the veins begin to strain against his neck as he slowly lifts his arms over his head and gets into a position that reminds you of earthquake drills in grade school. The blades shoot out and you hear some crackling along with some shaking from him as the voltage travels through the blades into his body. A few heavy breaths later he slams the penetrated wrist shackle over his knee snapping it. He's free.

>Quick, try to cut me free!

"No time to celebrate yet, Sharp. Keep your head down like you're still locked up." You whisper angrily

He stops his rise and settles back into the seat positioning himself to cover the holes in his seat. He does have a brain of his own, good to know. You start to look around the bus when you hear sword arms speak up.

"I like that, call me that."

"Pardon?"

"Sharp. I like that name."

You simply nod before turning your attention back to the bus, who do you focus on?

Save Rockman for last. His restraints are probably focused around him being strong. And made of stone. At least on the outside.
>>
>>1550801
I think, unless Sharpe's blades are some sort of biolomechanical mutation, they are some kind of subdermal implant. So sadly no cloning. We could make em better and THEN clone him.

Let's get Dave.
>>

Maybe extremely sharp bone? Then accelerated shedding and growing, like sharks teeth so they can regrow.
>>

We need the stealth-savvy ooze the bust our ass out of jail. Oh boy, here I go killing again.
>>
>>1550827
If it is sharp bone we could try to gene-splice some limpet mollusc to make that shit strong as hell.

If it's just metal we could probably change its composition. Likely incredibly painful to go through, but hey.
>>
"Hey, Goo-Ball." You whisper

"Ughhh" the thing groans back as you see two bloodshot eyeballs float to the back of its head and they float lazily looking at you

"I assume you heard my chat with our friend over there?"

A severed ear floats inbetween the eyeballs. A real comedian.

"I'm going to find a way to get you out of, whatever this is." You say as you examine the clear film that covers him, it appears to be some sort of material like a biosuit to keep him contained. The film has a port at the top, like a sort of vacuum suction point.

He groans again. This one feels likenit has a question mark on the end of it.

"Just give me a second to think." You whisper

>Sharp, get over here and pop our friend out.
>We can talk about this later I need time.
>Guard! This guy is leaking through his suit!
>Other (What's the plan to help Slimeball escape?)
>>
>>1550853
Nice idea. Limpet outperforms spider silk in strength.

Why not both?
>>

>See if he can apply specific pressure to the knob to try and force out the vacuum seal.
>>
>>1550874
This. Vaccum pumps have all sorts of structure problems.
>>
>>1550868
Popping sounds like a really bad idea, ever see a balloon pop? now imagine that's full of acid and we're right next to it. If melty can force up towards the pump, maybe that can fuck with it.
>>
>>1550856
Get some friction going to create a temperature difference on the seat and then stick the port on top of the bag on that spot. Heat should create negative pressure for when he tries to pull away and it'll suck some of him out. Basically wiggle like a motherfucker and put your head on the seat. If that doesn't work he could always try to get the port on top stuck between the seat and the wall or anything nearby, like a bar or rail of some sort and pull in the hopes of ripping it. Has he tried slamming his head on the floor?

kek. They have him in a goddamn airtight freezer bag.
>>
Spike should nick the suit while nobody looks. Just a wide enough slice to squeeze everything out. Tell him to keep it together while you free Megaman over here, then synchronized bust out when guards aren't looking.
>>
>>1550890
Holy shit, we have some smart motherfuckers in here.
>>
>>1550898
It's pressurized. Hence the vacuum. Bad idea.

Just an idea. My main point is that when they're all free they should make their move.

"Look, if you can create some heat on your seat and get that seal on your head up against it. The heat can draw out some of your uh...body. Can you do that, do you have any..parts to use to create friction?" You ask

You see a few fingers press against the bag and resist the urge to gag. You watch as his 'fingers' slide down and his suit shifts and crinkles so the vacuum tube is pointing towards you. You hear the sound of rubbing and eventually the vacuum seal dissappears. You wait anxiously and the vacuum seal returns to its position and you lie back thinking of what else you could do until you see it. A small trail of lightly corroded metal leadong to something the size of a toy car, a small lump of what appears to be melted flesh, it balls up and a small tentacle sort of limb emerges and..waves to you. Jesus christ what are these things.

Excellent questions! It seems it has eyes inside and other bits, but does it even really need them, perhaps it's just using them to communicate ideas back. How does it locomote?

"Hide out until I get our last friend out, maybe try to burn through my leg locks while you wait?" The meatwad forms a tiny thumbs up and falls off the seat in front of you and slaps onto the floor.

You turn and speak over your shoulder.

"Hey, Rock man. Can you talk?"

"Yes." The voice echoes from inside your own head

You take a moment to let some pain pass from the mental intrusion.

"What are your restraints like?"

"This shell you see. Is not my physical form. I have no form of my own, I am trapped within this one."

"How can I get you out?"

"You cannot, until this form is broken I am trapped by the magic embued in it's runes"

Magic? Voices in your head? This just got a lot more confusing that you could have thought.

>Meatball, can you burn through our friends stone?
>Sharp, Can you pry these stones loose?
>Sorry then Rocko, nothing I can do for you.
>Other
>>
>>1551052
Do you know precisely how much force is required? Can the runes be disrupted somehow? The man with the blades in his arm may be able to help.
>>
>>1551048
Sentient Cancer? now we're cooking with napalm.
>>
>>1551052
Both. Have Meatwad burn a weak spot into the stone, when we make our escape have Sharpe pry open the stone shell. Hopefully it doesn't kill us all.

>CALIFORNIA! WE NEED GENIUS.
>>
>>1551064
I'm just thinking, if this is an array of runes, perhaps targeting one with fuck the others. This is magic and so is possible-dormammu. Gotta do some info gathering. Also melty may not be able to stretch that far.
>>
>>1551052
The rock itself isn't holding him, but the runes, then? Maybe have Melty divert a little of his free goop to slip over and disrupt a few of the runes on the rock to see if it weakens the binding on GhostyMcTrappedFace.

If that fails we could have Melty weaken one particular spot on him until it's mostly soft and have Sharp just stab the shit out of it when we initiate our sudden escape after it's not so tough rock.

But if it really, really fails we could pry the magnetic components out of Sharp's seat, start them back up again but reverse the polarity on one so they attract to each other and then have them slam into the rock-shell. But that would take way too long for just suddenly busting out.
>>
>>1551052
how do you repair the form?
>>
>>1551077
wait misread that. nevermind
>>
>>1551077
Perhaps it requires a host body? He may have the ability to control a hosts mind. Maybe the driver?
>>
>>1551068
This might be on to something. Can he interact with the magic at all?
Say, perhaps, move magic from some of the runes to a single rune and overload the system that way?
>>
>>1551086
Or even sense/read which do what. How far is sharp from him. My mental image is he's behind magic mystery rock across from us.
>>
Immediate right is sharp
Ahead is gooey
Behind is Magic Rockboy
>>
>>1551091
Okey dokey.
>>
>>1551086
Or at least focus on one point, allowing us to then smash it. For a somewhat crude explanation.
>>
>>1551090
I think the rock is just regular rock you'd find anywhere. The runes I'd imagine are either carved, or drawn. If the rock is hollow, they may be on the inside WITH him. Otherwise, all you'd really have to do is knock it over or scratch the runes to disrupt them.
I say this on the idea that runes are traditionally fragile things that have to keep their specific structure in order to function.
>>
>>1551108
If the runes are on the inside, we must simply find the correct spot to Crack the shell to get to the contents within. Like a eating crab.
>>
>>1551125
By we finding the spot I mean not-dormammu.
>>
You feel a slight burning on both legs and flinch only to find, your legs are free. Meatball has eaten through your leg restraints and dear god. The wad of flesh is the size of a small dog.

Again you almost gag. But you hold it back once more.

"Go work on any symbols you find on our friends rock suit back there will you?"

The meatwad rolls beneath your feet, the squelches are horrendous. After a few moments you hear some light sizzling and the voice in your mind.

"Thank you, friend. I do not know if this will free me but the effort is appreciated. I will conquer your mind last."

>What do you mean by that?
>Meatball, stop messing with the runes.
>Guards! This rock thing is threatening me!
>Other

Hah.

Got a sudden Nightmare on Elm Street Dream Warriors vibe.
>>
>>1551142
Right. Because trapping yourself in ANOTHER form is a grand idea. Especially one that leaks fluids everywhere.
>>
>>1551166
There's an idea. To prevent a possession, or discourage it. Kill switches inside our mind and body. Perhaps a series of poisons and antidotes needed to be taken at the correct times?
>>
We're totally going to use his escape as a distraction to get away.
>>
>>1551170
Or an iteration of a Faraday cage, but for the arcane.

MC doesn't seem particularly insane. Definitely lacking in morals, though. He's still crazy. His reaction to offing a group of small time heroes and getting locked up is "Meh. Not like I did anything all that big to deserve this.". Seems more like a sociopath than a psychopath.

"What do you mean by that?" You ask, more curious than frightened

"I am merely contained to this one form. I once maintained hundreds, my influence cannot be stopped. No mind is powerful enough to reject me. You and all others on this vessel will make fine drones." The monotone is gentle now, less pain.

"I do love a challenge. Perhaps it also isn't the best idea to take over bodies that are literally leaking onto the floor as we speak." You say

"Perhaps not, but your pet has already freed me. And it is too late."

You feel a blinding pain in your head and watch as a light purple mist floods from behind you and towards the front of the bus.

A guard notices and pulls his radio.

"ALERT TO AUTHORITY, BOX TRANSPORT HAS A BREACH. I REPEAT WE.." He is cut off as the mist invades his nose. His eyes turn a dull purple and he frees his gun before putting it in his own mouth and pulling the trigger.

"What the fuck is going on back there!" Yells the driver before he too is invaded by the miasma and he throws his hands to the side. Flipping the bus.

You watch as Meatball flies past your head splattering against a man with scales two rows ahead. He screams as he's consumed but it's drowned out by the exploding glass and crunching metal. Then darkness.

You wake up quickly, your head ringing and most people around you are dead or unconcious, your feet are free but your hands remain bound. Pushing up on crushed glass you feel blood running down your head and arms. You sit up and begin to look around when you notice the purple mist slowly spreading towards you.

Me too.
And he brings up a pen and notebook from nowhere so he can write science.
>>
"This truly is exhilarating. I wanted a challenge, so how about we get on with it." You say with a smile. You taste blood.

"Gladly." You hear in your mind as the mist floods your body and everything goes white.

You feel the stabbing pain in your head but through force of will put it aside.

"Your mind, it is powerful and expansive. It will make a fine prize."

"I don't think it will, you attack thet frontal lobe. The decision making center, I doubt you have the capacity to understand why I make the choices I do."

"All your choices are basetd in science and logic, it is simple to understand."

"Then why do I sense a struggle to override my mind."

"There is no struggle, any perceived failure is only a trick of the mind."

"How can a mind you control play tricks?"

Silence.

"I feel you moving now, the Amygdala. Emotional center of the brain, how curious."

"What is this trick?"

"No tricks, Miasma. Tell me what you've found, my friend. What emotion drives me, what emotions are deep in my psyche?"

"Nothing."

"Exactly. Now get the fuck out."

You allow the pain to take over. It feels as if hot iron is being pressed through your skull but the only screams you hear are from Miasma. A few minutes of white hot pain and your vision returns to you, you are staring at the bouncing ground. You lift your head and see the fleshy slop of Meatball rolling behind you. The movement triggers a stop.

Sharp lies you down.

"Are you okay? I saw you unconscious and figured you needed the help, plus I owed you one. The uh..meat pile tagged along. Seriously are you okay?"

"A small inconvenience, sentient migraine tried to hijack my brain and it didn't go well. How far are we from the site of the crash?"

Sharp takes a minute to think.
"Dunno. Hour or two?"

You sigh and stand up, things go wobbly for a second but you regain your balance.

Standing, you look at these two followers you've gathered.

A walking meat monster and a man with swords in his arms. Not quite the powerhouse team you'd choose but they served their purpose. Only question now: is if they serve any other.

The problem with this is that you need to flesh out the motivations of the MC whilst still somehow making him seem relatable. Its much easier to show this in small bites between lines than in whole monologues, so that it falls on the reader to interpret the MC however they want.
>>
>>1551419
>Keep Them

>>1551494
I see MC as being a pretty standard sociopath who engages in his mass murdering because he simply enjoys it and anything other than that is nowhere near as gratifying
>>
>>1551535
perhaps young MC was so intellectually superior that he had, in his head, derived most of the endless variations of his reality. At least the most probable ones. In his head, young MC has alerady lived his life of a lawyer, an engineer, etc.

A living "many-worlds interpreter" if you will.

Maybe he is trying to make himself a random, unforseen path, and just be surprised by it.

willing to go along with a "doing it for fun /thrills / kicks" sociopath too, sound more earthly to me.
>>
>>1551646

So what is the game plan for right now?

We need to find

>Clothing
>A Place to lie low
>Easy to get to several different areas

I would recommend sewers. One of us is an Eldritch Horror, and we can find an abandoned train station and hook up to the power grid to at least get cozy.

Afterwards, food and clothing are primary concerns. Robbing a supermarket is a bit too high profile, but robbing food trucks or going to soup kitchens is a good alternative.

Then, I dunno. Visit a local library or get in contact with local mob bosses to get some contracts out or start grabbing territory, or playing one against the other and getting pieces to ourselves.
>>
>>1551646
I honestly think it should Rogues call as he's the one running this weather he wants us to be a relative low power villain or a full blown Dr DOOM/Luther type is really a matter of his ruling

That aside Our owlman shennanigans in a hurry go powered setting could have lead to a psychotic break because of the mental strain of the math as opposed to my own low power sociopath idea


Also Rogue get a trip for secruity purposes
>>
>>1551687
Sounds like a good plan of attack considering our current needs, as far as clothes are concerned I'd suggest a suit if for nothing more than appearances sake and a look of control in future dealings.

Sewers will also likely give slime a good camouflage unless I'm mistaken
>>
>>1551687
Sewers are actually not the vast underground you think it out to be. Most of the time there only specific exits to the sewers, and 90% of them are locked entrances to latrine plants. Also smell. Also electricity.

I suggest we go to the subway tunnels. Basically the sewers but with a much MUCH greater access to everything (closer to power and shops as well as being steathly enough to go under the radar. I mean honestly the sewers will be the first cliche they check.) and also doubles as a quick fare-free getaway.


Up to you anyway OP
>>
I'm going to be leaving these major choices up to you, as well as just how genius our unnamed MC is. I like to run quests by being the guy to take your concepts and run with them, it is most definitely you guys and not me in control of the story and your own limitations. (Unless you want to do something retarded like "reprogram this remote control into a bomb" without the proper equipment.)

My only reluctance about using a tripcode is that I have dynamic and constantly changing IP and would hate to be locked out of my own quest with nobody knowing I was me.
>>
>>1551688
ooh, psychotic break, sounds tasty!
>i am emo, hear me weep

however low power genius engineering student dropout level conforms better to the grittiness i'm envisuoning for this quest.

>>1551702
subway, fuck yeah, a lot of disused technical spaces/vent shafts/machine rooms for raw materials and shelter

>>1551687

>>1551708
Uh, do you know how trip codes work?

>>1551553
fuck my mobile network with floating ip's, this is still me.

>>1551712
also, correction, envisioning
>>
>>1551708
the trip basically ensures you're not locked out, its kind of why the exist

>>1551712
as a person who almost had one thats really not how they work.

but yeah im favorable more of a low powered sociopath myself mostly because Owlman already did the countless theoretical outcomes nonsense
>>
>>1551714
Not going to lie. No I don't. Never used one before, figured it was a sort of protection that linked a name to an IP. After reading I'm guessing its more of a Name then password after the # that gives me a specific code to identify me. Correct?

I do need help knowing what to put in what field however, I'd appreciate anyones help if they're willing :]
>>
>>1551717
We're eventually slated for Luthor level intellect. So possible Owlman shenanigans. Low level is totally fine, for now. But eventually our crazy ass is gonna get bored.

I actualy have an idea of where I think we should take the character, as a persona. sociao path who keeps his word, think a super villain banker. you want men come to me, you want a deal overseen come to me. we take 10% of the earnings and then we are set.

true enough but see my above answer, also we resisted him. still a silly idea with no safe guards, but we resisted him

yes and only us until a safeguard can be developed, he could litreally kill us with pure numbers if he wished so

>>1551764
>I actualy have an idea of where I think we should take the character, as a persona. sociao path who keeps his word, think a super villain banker.
It doesn't sound like a persona from the looks of it. If you're talking about how he gets in the supervillain business, then yes he could be a criminal broker.

but is there any written text your taking the "super villain rules" from or are you using it as another way to say common sense?
>>
it just occured to me that we are the literal voices in a deranged genius's head.

>>1551771
that's a way to go about it, though i see us as less of a big mobster boss type and more of an...unclearly motivated loner seeing the minions as tools for his own purpose.
>>
>>1551771
We like a bit of mayhem and murder though. We're not always very subtle. Think of it this way, when Miasma attacked us he found no emotional drive for what we do. We do this because we can and get a kick out of it. Ever watched the show Hannibal? I feel like we were probably a bit like him. Taking efforts to be seen as normal, until we just decided to cut loose. Maybe we were tired of holding back, when you constantly look at people and things and see how they can be torn down and destroyed probably gets real boring.
>>
>>1551776
you would have it any other way? if so whos who? the deranged one, the clinical one?

also that is the definition of sociopath
>>
After we get settled in the abandoned subway tunnels, we should take stock of what our guys can do and can't do. And then lay out the general plan of attack that we should take.
>>
>>1551782
As pesky and temporary as it is, we need funds. I'm guessing Sharp has contacts. Maybe some gangs? I can't wait to have some minions, small unit guerrilla tactics are excellent fun.

(I've doubled the # for my tripp)

"You've done good, Sharp. Meatball I appreciate the loyalty from you as well." You say kindly

A few teeth float to the surface in the style of a smile.

"Jesus fucking christ." Sharp says looking concerned

"You get used to it." You say shrugging

You look around where you are, a long deserted road. Nothing but cornfields and cow shit, you see a few dark figures going off into the air in the direction of the bus and you also spot a city further down the road.

"What's the plan then, boss?" You hear Sharp ask.

A small grin spreads when you hear 'boss'

I think we all have a little bit of everything, just some have more than others. I may not be as technical, but I have a ridiculous imagination, never hurts to think big.

There is an extensive written list of villain's rules on how to not be a dunce in Hollywood universes. The ones I'm referring to are common sense.

>>1551776
>>1551779
Sounds good. We can do both, depending on what the Gadgeteer's mood is at the time. The mob boss mentality is when he’s feeling like an office drone, the Hannibal-like loner is when he’s feeling like cutting loose.

I get what you're saying. Some people seem to be set on a pseudo multiple personality kinda thing.

That can be fun for a little while. As long as it's not our sole focus. I dunno how long I'd wanna spend on supervillain company management quest. Would be kinda cool to just sell a boatload of cheap death rays to a bunch of low level criminal gangs and seeing how well they do in a single instance. Test response times.

"Lets get to the city, the most likely have a few flyers out looking for us, so we stick to the cornfield and stay low. Understood?" You end your sentence by sliding into the cornstalks

Sharp follows and you hear the sizzle of digesting plantlife when meatball rolls in.

"Shrink down or stay on the road, can't have you leaving a trail." You say without looking over your shoulder. You hear a low groan and a much smaller hissing sound.

Good boys, they follow orders.

The sun is finally starting to set as you stumble out of the fields on the outskirts of the city, a large glowing sign welcomes you.

"WELCOME TO PARADISE, NY" The sign comes complete with a mom in summer dress and father with cocktail to drive the 'we cant let go of the 50's' feeling home. Here on the outskirts there are a few boarded up Mom and Pop shops, a half burnt down library and a gas station with a nice Convertible fueling up.

You're used to being a bigger fish in your pond back home in Toronto, but it looks like they brought you from your pond. To an ocean across the border. So it's time to get big, or get eaten.

What's the first step?
>Get the boys set up in one of these small shops

>>1551831

>>
>>1551834
case out who's driving the convertable

if its someone not wearing a suit I say move on and maintain stealth while doing so
>>
>>1551834
Raid the station, steal the car, burn the station down. We don't need to stay here long after all. Little bit of money, a car, some road food. Maybe a gun behind the counter. Then head to the city.
>>
>>1551834
>>Get the boys set up in one of these small shops

are we starting our own gang?

>Some people seem to be set on a pseudo multiple personality kinda thing.
I wasn't thinking of it as a pseudo-multiple personality as much as, the criminal business is his day-time job whereas the mayhem and killing sprees are his warped perceptions of having fun and unwinding. Like someone who plays vidya games after work, but in this case his thoughts of a vidya game are plotting out the bombing of a bank and getting away with it.
>>
>>1551827
>he's not afraid to blow up a building and stab a punk kid hero in the chest.

that our whole end goal though, pain and suffering and eventual death of supers at our hands because we get a kick out of it

>>1551830
now THIS I can get behind
>>
>>1551845

I don't like the fact that we would announce our presence by burning down the station. Nothing says Dangerous criminals like robbery and arson.

A simple robbery would be best. And how big is this city? Under 10k?
>>
>>1551834
>>1551846
>>1551853
Sure, it'll be a good way to see how well our new gang works together.
>>
>>1551853
Uuuuugggggghgggh. People are gonna expect shit to go down after a bus of villains crashes and they have escapees, fine. If I get out voted fine. We're burning something down though. I promise you that.
>>
>>1551862
stay your hand cal, we will urn someone I promise you that, but your zeal must be tempered with thought. find base, establish ourselves, conduct raids. these are priority. now if we were to find a rival or a super [preferably one just starting out and as such has no allies or experiance] we locate weakness and then we hit it hard. home, burn. family, kill. his identity, maim. then man himself twist into a puppet for our ammusment then kill him when he gives up.

follow kharns creed: kill maim burn with extream predjudice

>>1551840
>>1551860
>>1551862
If the fuzz are going to come here in force, do a demo run of some crimes, then move up to something that'll get us some good shit before ditching the place?
If they're not, we can do something like
>>1551866
>>
>>1551862

But you have to take it from the investigators point of view.

1.) Establishing who is there and who isn't.
2.) Direction where people have fled.
3.) Time of discovery of the crash.
4.) Manpower Available.

An average person can travel at least 5 miles an hour in a leisurely pace, or 40+ miles in a 8 hour day traveling. Given that the investigators do not know where we have traveled, that means that investigators have a search area of almost 5,000 miles to cover within a day. Now, they can limit that search area by looking at towns or areas of congestion where people are likely to congregate, but I do not want to do the cops job for them by announcing that we have fled in this direction.

If we can stay free without notice for about 48 hours, we are basically free at that point and can do whatever we want. And given that the bus crashed in the middle of bumfuck cornfields, they likely will not have the manpower to cover all 5k miles in a day.
>>
"Follow me." You head towards the gas station, determination in every stride as you close in.

You hear a loud guitar solo coming from the nice car some kid, probably an early 20 something trust fund brat, is strumming the nozzle like a guitar as he returns it to the pump.

Another car is on the side of the building, an old brown pickup truck.
You can see inside through a large window, a worker stands with his back to you reading some sort of newspaper and scratching his bald spot. These people disgust you.

You put on your most charming smile and decide, violence isn't always the answer.

You approach the vehicle, he doesn't notice you due to how into his music he is. You let him finish up his solo and put up the nozzle before he turns around and jumps upon noticing you.

"Oh shit man didn't...see...you...there...jesus christ." He says, you watch the color drain from his face as he gazes over your shoulder

Meatball tried to follow your lead and you see multiple, have eaten teeth forming a smile and the eyes are back as well. Brilliant.

"What the..oh my god...I'm gonna.." you see the kid's knees begin to shake.

You reach out and grab the kid.

"Hey hey, he's not gonna hurt you buddy. He's like a big gooey pet. He's harmless."

You stare into his eyes and do your best to convey what you assume is humanity. He swallows hard and stands up.

"Can..can he back up some?" He asks

"Of course buddy, hey meatball. Take a few steps back give the kid some space." You say waving your hand.

The horrific fleshball rolls away and the kid gets a little color back in his face.

"Thank you...I have to go my...dad is expecting me home. He gets really worried."

His face is covered in sweat and his eyes are still locked on meatball.

meh I was writing down what we had sort of agreed upon or mentioned. the reason for brokering, at least on my point, is that we would be the center of a lot of cover ops and criminality if we do it right, that's a lot of money to be made and some tough neutrality to attack

"Of course you can head home pal, but I need a favor. I'm stranded out here my car broke down a few miles up the road. If you could just give me a ride into the city I would pay you back of course." You smile brightly but note his hesitation

"I mean, I could...but that would have to stay here. My dad would kill me if I got his car dirty."

"So the car is your father's? He must have some money to get a beauty like this."

"I mean, he makes enough I guess. He's the manager for the Paradise City Bank so I guess that pays."

"Oh yes. I'm sure it does"

He looks a little nervous so you give him a squeeze on the arm.

"Your positive he cant come with us, even if we set up a tarp?"

"No way man, he'd get..goop everywhere. He has to stay behind I'm sorry."

i motion towards the gas station attendant watching me and meatball from the doorway

"Sir, i think the young gentleman here has a problem with your services, could you come here and sort it out?"

meanwhile, Sharp (whom everybody seems to have forgotten) sneaks into the station for loot / cctv records / cash.

Then perhaps le double feeding time?
>>
>>1552111
what about the driver of the truck, that's why we should eat unobserved. and I did not forget sharp
>>
>>1552113
welp, either we kill the attendant, kid and truckie, and erase the cctv records, or we leave some sort of trail. It's not like meatball is terribly stealthy.

so new plan?
meatball and us > kid and attendant
sharp > truckie

loot, torch or not at leisure then.
>>
>>1552118
I think this is good, give the kid an excuse to buy us a few seconds and then give the others instructions, sharp kill the shop guy, meat ball kills the truckie and then we punch the kid in the throat, symultaiously
>>
We shouldn't kill the kid, wouldn't be the wisest decision. We shouldn't kidnap him either, we will get our ass hunted down by the heroes... We could scare or intiminade the kid in some way... Maybe a feeding demonstration?
>>
>>1552099

Can we use meatball to use the kid as a meat-puppet?

"Sorry Meat, you gotta stay here." You finish that with a wink.

"Yeah sorry, you're just too messy." Says the kid

"Yeah no problem, say can I have your address? After you help us out I'm going to be sending your father a letter about how you're such a great kid, and I'm also going to include a little cash for helping us out."

You see his eyes light up when you mention money. Typical.

"Yeah sure, it's the Larkin Estate. 567 West Pinnacle Ave." He says cheerfully

"Thank you, son. My god, is that a rash on your neck?"

"My neck? A rash?"

"Yeah it looks like you might be allergic to meatball, look up for me."

He does as you ask looking up and exposing his throat to a brutal jab that sends him down choking and holding his throat.

"Sharp, you handle the cashier inside. Meatball, go check that pickup. If anyone's in there make sure any problems they may have with our actions are dissolved." Sharp nods and heads off to the store, you see the long blades slide out from under his forearms as he kicks through the glass door and the attendant screams.

Meatball rolls off to the truck leaving you alone with the kid.

You know a lot of acids aren't reactive to plastics, Melty may be stronger than your average acid by a few hundred magnitudes but it can't hurt to try to get him a nice cozy container to carry him in and stop leaving a trail. Pour him in a gas jug leave the lid popped and he's traveling in style.

Plus it'll give us a great excuse if someone asks why we're walking looking all weird. Just say we were bringing gas back to our car and jiggle the jug a bit for some slosh, then if necessary toss Melty out on them.
>>
You pop the trunk while Daddy's boy deals with his sore throat. A car emergency kit, it'll do.

You get the length of rope and give the Larkin youth a solid cross to put him out for a while. A few sailor's knots later and you heavy him into the trunk.

Meatball rolls back looking as disappointed as a large ball of sentient flesh can, truck must belong to the clerk. You take a look and see Sharp leaving the gas station in a pair of jeans and the attendants blue and white shirt. He's eating a churro, truly a professional.

You look him up and down and he shrugs.

"Guy bled a lot, had an extra work uniform behind the counter so I tossed it on. There's other clothes in there if you wanna change, boss. I know I got sick of those prison scrubs the second I got em."

New clothes and food. We can't go around in prison slacks, or without sustenance.

also search for cctv camera records and delete them.
>>
>>1552230
>>I could use some new clothes, and a little food
Gas station food, yum. Avoid the sushi.

Bash the register up and smash some shit, make it look like a struggle. A common botched robbery. Take the cash, naturally. If it weren't for the busted up glass door thanks to Sharp I'd say we have Melty take care of the evidence and make it look like a weird disappearance after we scrubbed the place but Sharp went a little too HAM. And get rid of camera footage if they have any cameras floating around. And smash the cameras.
>>
take both cars as well, I hope sharp can drive, if not then only dadys boy and his care will do
>>
>>1552235
oh, also - daddy's car for us and meatball, clerk's truck for sharp? two vehicles are better than one.

>>1552226
good idea, but of melty is so acid how can a metal or plastic gas can hold him?

on second thought, how can he even ride in a car without melting through?
>>
>>1552244
good idea...use our intellect to figure it out
>>
>>1552244
>good idea, but of melty is so acid how can a metal or plastic gas can hold him?

It actually depends entirely on what type of acid it is. Some acids only break down organic material. Some only corrode metal. Some literally explode when exposed to air. We just need to find out what type of acid Melty is. It's possible he is non-reactive to plastics, since they had him in a vacuum sealed bag. We know he corrodes metal on contact and absolutely disintegrates organic tissues, which also seems to be at will rather than at random, since he still has bits of people floating around inside of him, like fingers, eyes and teeth and such.

It's safe to think plastic, or treated plastic at least, can hold him.
>>
>>1552230

>>Keep the car running, I'm going to do a little shopping

Take meat ball let him eat the corpse. No evidence.
>>
"Keep the car running, Sharp. Meaty, your with me." You say as you head off to the store. Sharp grabs the keys from the seat and turns the engine before putting on some radio show and reclining.

You and Meat enter through the broken door. The Attendant lies behind the counter in a pool of blood. You hear meatball begin grunting rapidly and leaning towards the body.

"Eat up buddy, we gotta drive ahead of us." You say

He eagerly lunges over the counter and completely immerses the man. You grab a journal and pen off the counter and record the experience. Rate of consumption, chemical reaction signs, anything you can remember you jot down. When he's finished a pearly pile of bones lies on the floor.

"Not gonna finish?" You ask

And the bones too are absorbed.

You grab a backpack off the wall and begin stuffing various chips and bottles of water into it. You also grab a GPS, A survival knife. A keychain of pepper spray and a few lighters. You head over to the limited clothes, find a pair of jeans and a 'PARADISE CITY' t-shirt. You clip the knife onto your waist and pocket the pepper spray and lighter. As you pull out a bottle of water and take a slow time drinking it, the cold crisp taste is ecstacy. You even indulge in a hot dog.

As you take the last bite you hear a commotion outside before the familiar shattering of glass and a scream as Sharp comes through the window sideways and slams into the aisle shelves sending them and many cans of hairspray and other toiletries scattered over the floor.

You look through the now open window and see a man who must be 6,5 and 275 pounds of swollen muscle. You remember him from the back of the bus, he stared at you but you wrote it off as a scare tactic. He reached the door and tears it from its hinge and dropping it noisily on the tile.

He points a massive finger at you as Sharp finally stands after a struggle.

"I saw you talking to that misty freak. The same freak that caused the crash that killed my baby brother."

You open your mouth to speak but instead dodge a register he chucked at your head that shatters the glass door to the drink cooler.

"No words will save you now, runt. You killed my family. My only family. Now I'm going to rip you apart."

Well this will certainly be a challenge.

(Final post for today boys. Gotta go into work until 11pm EST. As always tell me how you're enjoying the quest and feel free to chat with each other and make as many plans, schemes and puns as you want. Thank you for being involved )

Is the pepper spray flammable?
>>
>>1552269
Well maybe if his brother wasn't such a pussy he wouldn't have let a widdle car cwash off him.

So how zany should we get when we take him down? Drop motor oil at his feet when he comes charging in so he slides into the broken glass door and cuts himself up? He doesn't seem to dinged up from the crash, though, so he's probably tougher than the average joe in terms of his flesh.

Maybe fling some lighter fluid at him if they sell any here, then make an impromptu flamethrower out of our can of mace and the lighter, set him ablaze. No matter how tough you are, smoke inhalation is a bitch. Can't breath or see when you're on fire. Can substitute lighter fluid for high-proof alcohol. Just chuck a few bottles of good shit at him which he will probably block because "ooohh tough guy" then he's drenched and ready to light.

Can't think of any quick and easy ways to electrocute him, though.

Worst comes to we can have him step in a puddle of Melty and lose part of his leg then let Sharp get some payback. Hindered mobility is a great way to get killed.
>>
>>1552269
(one chance so recruit him:) I'm sorry for your loss, my friend. That asshole tried to steal my body as well before he ruined everything.
(if that doesn't work try to kill him)
>>
>>1552337
Something tells me he has entered fuckass-mad mode and is going to be too busy attempting to remove our limbs to care even remotely about anything we have to say.

His little brother is dead and it's all our fault. Boo-hoo.
>>
>>1552337
If he was a lot calmer then sure, but he's acting like a mad dog. And we gotta put'em down like Old Yeller.
>>
What color tie should we wear with the suit we inevitably wear?
>>
>>1552715
Salmon.
>>
>>1552715
Deep Sea Blue, it's a very calming color. And goes well with a black or white suit.
>>
>>1552715
The most eye-searing chartreuse we can find.
>>
>>1552269
Welp...fuck. Didnt see that coming. Nice on you OP.

We need to retain our baraka, try explaining to him that the mist tried to fuck with us as well.
>>
>>1552971
>"He tried to fuck me as well."
>"MY BROTHER IS DEAD BECAUSE OF YOU REEEEEEE"

That's my hypothesis on how it'll play out. Sometimes you can't talk your way out of a situation. He's being emotional.
>>
>>1552295
Some pepper spray is flammable but it's safer to hedge our bets currently, Is say lure him outside and douse him in Petrol either by having him damage the rig or hosing him in it

>>1552269
Thanks for running rogue I look forward to more
>>
I'd suggest we spray him with petrol and then maybe shove one in his mouth, then Light him up? Something tells me Meatball hates fire.

Sharp should likely stay back as those blades ain't gonna help much.

I suggest this sorta battle plan...

1) The boys run interference while we get outside before baiting him over.
2) The boys fall back when he comes for us and get out the area
3) We blow up the gas canisters and petrol with some matches etc and blow the guy away.
>>
>>1551908
Finally back, shittiest day. Time to read where we left off my favorite homicidal maniac. Also Melty Meatball is still the best.
>>
>>1552337
Yeah no. We already have some good minions and he attacked one for a stupid ass reason. So our actions caused the death of his brother, who cares? Chances are most of us her absorbed a twin in the womb. Lots of dead siblings. Don't see me blubbering and making an ass of myself.
>>
>>1553759
Also anons, we have easy access to bottles of booze, rags and lighters. Molotovs for days. I told you we're gonna burn something down boys!
>>
>>1552269
Thanks for running Rogue and rolling with us going hard in the paint with this evil genius bit. This was a blast.
>>
>>1553759
Maybe Sharps blades won't work on the muscle, but I wonder how well his eyeballs do? Or how well he'd do against Melty going down his throat?
>>
>>1553867
Also, I'm reasonably certain this place contains a fire extinguisher. Inhalation of extinguisher powder is one of it's main dangers. In large quantities (pouring as much as inhumanly possible into meathead's mouth) It'll coat your lung and cause extreme respiratory issues, ergo lots of coughing and trying to breathe. Then enter Melty our secret adorable weapon.
>>
>>1553867
I believe that the main reason that Sharps took a toss through the front window was because the big bad wolf got the drop on him before Sharps could bring out the metaphorical "big guns". Either way let's not rule him out without proof that andre the giant can no sell his blades like he's armstrong from MGR.
>>
>>1553807
Just for Cali, I can run some late night quest if you and some others are here.

Like I said, we shouldn't discount him. He may need some help applying his strengths in a more fruitful manner. Also, excellent reference I liked Armstrong quite a bit.

Most every living thing flinches from a stab to the eye. If he's not invulnerable, we'll definitely know.

Hey Rogue, if ya gotta get your shuteye I can dig it. I just wanted to chime in a little, since I missed a bunch of fun times, like kidnapping and tking notes on how Bubbles eats people.

>>1553895
Of course, the real trick for now is to see how good his reaction times are.
So many tools, so many choices, so few test subjects to try them out on....
>>
>>1553867
you're overthinking it >>1553883 has it right and mscles likely got the drop on him

>>1553884
well being an ausfag I'd appreciate that too
>>
>>1553899
That is a problem with additional mass to be sure. That and pressure on the joints. Sadly we don't have anything with enough force inside here to kneecap this gentleman.
>>
>>1553903
And you aren't thinking enough my friend. We don't know his capabilities, we are have been blindsided and we need more data before we can assume Sharp can easily handle a man that has dazed him. I'm not saying he can't hang guys, just that he could use a hand. We are very smart. Why waste time with a slugfest?

So guys quick question. What is going to be our super-villan name? And what is the MC real name?
>>
>>1555312
Boss
or
The Boss
>>
>>1555312
>Alias
Mr.Wolf (Outfits vary but a Haunting Wolf Skull remains a persistent theme hiding his face)

>Real Name
Domanic Moreau

>Theme
Quick thinking, cunning, imaginative and hyper lethal. Mr Wolf runs a tight ship and takes only the best or shapes associates to be so. Professional and ruthlessly pragmatic Mr.Wolf stops at nothing to achieve his goals whatever they may be, yet he has a degree of loyalty many don't prove your worth and he will see you rewarded, cross him and be face his wrath no matter where you go or how long it takes he will find you. Many mistake his like for neatness as a sign of civility...this would be a grave mistake

>Current Associates
Mr Sharp
Mr Meat

I think names like Mr. Wolf are fucking golden.

I would like to see the character portrayed as cold and highly professional, and only prone to emotional outbursts when incredibly stressed or angry. I think it would do well with a sociopathic nature.

Going full blown Yakuza professional mob boss level would be awesome.

I would suggest if we go the business route, we avoid the traditional things like gun running, drugs, etc. We should instead insinuate ourselves into businesses that are necessary for society to function. (trash pickup, plumbing unions, hospitals, police, banking, electricity etc.) We would use a patsy to run the criminal element to have people focus on the overt problems and not the subversion we would be running.
>>
>>1556138

A list of names that i think would be pretty cool to use for nefarious purposes. The character I was imagining would be Ralph Finnes character from Coriolanus, or something similar.

>Tiberius

>>1556983
We're on the path to Lex Luthor level intellect. So a lot of crazy shenanigans will be had.

I just hope if we ever get a super-suit we don't just default to brute-forcing problems instead of flinging weird shit at them and SCIENCE-ing situations.

When we get a suit, we're gonna be smart as fuck about it. There's gonna be all sorts of cool ways to fuck with heroes. Teleport guns, imagine a speedster running at us, boom the ground said speedster is running on disappears as we transported 27 meters of ground into the ocean. Then speedster goes splat.
>>
>>1557048
Oh White Wolf. They make fun games. I enjoyed playing a Sabbat vampire and just marauding through a city.
>>
>>1557031
Our super-suit should be extremely modular in design, mostly so that we can just as easily build an answer to a situation and mount it on the fly. That way the more stupid heroes get their asses handed to them because they think it's a one trick pony.
>>
>>1557069
And fan made too. Cool. I can see our character enjoying katastrofi, at least I would. Since we get to burn this gas station down now! (it was a good idea guys, you should just listen)

One of Iron Man's newer armors took inspiration from the various spiderman symbiotes. Liquid metal like, but can be rigid and large too, adaptive and all that.
>>
>>1557099
It is a interesting concept, although I am a bit wary about wearing liquid metals. Mostly because shit could go wrong off the bat from turning us into a statue of metal to ending up like a less tasty version of Meatball via sabotage from a antihero. Buuuut if We cover our bases and decuple check every step of it's creation then I'll probably be down for a nice looking three piece suit made of liquid metals.
>>
>>1557171
That reminds me of that comic where Ironman's suit shut down completely with him in it after a fight and he screamed and struggled but couldn't escape and he starved to death in his suit.

Which is partly why I want to invent a super-soldier serum on the sly. Just in case.

You know, when we get good enough with our tech I propose we capture eldritch horrors, con demons, and create epidemics and sell the cures for profit.

A truly fun world of darkness game California? Mage: The Ascension, may need to change the actual rules but it's amazing. True reality dickery for fun and profit
>>
>>1557193
The suit can be fun for a while though. There's a lot more than that we can do though. I just use the super suit as an idea for a genius type that does a lot of his work himself.
>>
>>1557216
Why bother with creating all that chaos for money? We seem to be more about pitting our considerable intellect and ruthlessness against heroes for a good time, a challenge and learning new and exciting things.
>>
>>1557241
Yep. Our motivations need to be a little more abstract. Not Picasso abstract...just a little abstract.
>>
>>1557260
The challenge anon, always learning, always growing. All to take down bigger and better targets. The whole reason we got sent to super prison was because we merked 4 low level supers and then got blindsided by a major player. All it took was a bomb and a knife too.

>>1557278
I'm not saying money is useless, I just don't like that being a goal. It's paper. Just a means to an end.

What if our suit had was interchangeable like iron man's? Have the big bulky suit, then after the lengthy draining battle, the heroes have gone through all of our tricks, they've finally got us into a corner forced to fight in a melee, our suit is finally busted beyond repair and they think they've won only to have a come out with a second sleeker suit under the heavier one, just as strong as the first. They look on their faces would be amazing.
>>
>>1557441
If the battle took that long to get to our superior suit, it took too long. You just wanna do the whole this isn't even my final form bit.
>>
>>1557472
>>1557441
To be honest, if we're doing a fuckton of fighting it means that we dun screwed up somewhere in the planning phase.
>>
>>1557288
Yeah. I would picture our guy as a Frank Underwood when it comes to money. Money is a means to an end and shouldnt be confused with out true goal.
>>
>>1557478
That's exactly what I mean. Either you fucked up your plan, or you're playing with your food. The fight should never take so long that they're drained blah blah...either they bring their A game and we crush em or it's just ego masturbation.
>>
>>1557483
I mean hell, the other anons want a broker, banker type villain. We could make androids to replace people that have lucrative positions, mutant cordyceps fungi that makes people our slaves, etc.

agreed, my though on this was have a group of ten people, have ten glasses of poison that will kill the hero more painfully the more he drinks. tell it that for every glass he drinks a civilian will be let go, watch the suffering either he does it he dies he don't do it the recording is broadcasted over the airways and we escape

>>1557723
I think we can take him, three on one plus I'm pretty meatball could take care of him on it's own. We say he but now a small part of me thinks meatball could be a chick, that's kind of terrifying...
>>
>>1557723
It's gonna be messy. Earlier I posited using a fire extinguisher down the throat method to get meathead to have difficulties breathing, then have Melty go down his windpipe.
>>
>>1557721
Junkyars are good for raw material. If we manage some good money from the kids dad we can start investing in some higher quality stuff.

Not only can we rob the dad, he's also the manager of the city bank. I wonder if he has access to the vault? Hmm.

I think a fire would be pretty good. Bonus points since a gas station explosion would wipe pretty much all of the possible evidence lying about. Thank you, fire.
>>
>>1557749
Junk yards are generally privately owned right? From my experience it's usually one guy taking care of it, "Switching hands" wouldn't be too difficult, it'd give us a place, materials, and some cash on the up and up while we start to work long term.

Priority if we take a junkyard is to get some industrial tools and actual artisan tools rather than the sort of shit you usually find in a garage at a yard. Well, not including any crane they may or may not have depending on the kind of business they do.
>>
>>1557779
Snoozefest. Petty shit. Waste of time, time which could be spent gaining a territory of our own, funds, weapons, materials.
>>
>>1557779
no not sadistic, be bored. unpredictable. our only virtue is we never break our word. play chess for someones freedom. experiment upon another for comforts of the others. see how far they will go for another

>>1557779
M8 We're no mere joker in the deck.
>>
>>1557776
We have the kid tied up in his own trunk. Marinate on that.
>>
>>1557786
Shouldn't be a problem if the bank heist ends up working out.
>>
>>1557779
Right now we are still kind of on the run from any investigating supers checking out the crashed bus and possible stragglers from the bus who also have beef with us like BeefyMcSmallHead who threw Sharp through the window.

No real time for being a sadist. MC doesn't strike me as a sadist either.
>>
>>1557795
Sounds like that's more time spent away making things that explode and kill capes.
>>
>>1557808
True, but we do kind of have a kid tied up in our new car, we should probably get that over with before go into hiding.
>>
>>1557783
So use the kid to get to his dad. Once we get inside we spank the rich guy,rob him of all of it's money. Tie up all the people in the house maybe leave meatball to eat people up in case the dead doesn't go along. Then rob the bank knock out the dad or kill him and leave meatball eat one or too employes. Just so people know we aren't kidding.
>>
>>1557815
Naturally. Can't have some pretentious daddy's money fuccboi screaming as we try to escape, after all.
>>
>>1557816
I suppose. Depends on if Melty's digestive system, does it devour for sustenance as well as fun? How much does it require? Will dissolving give Melty more mass? I'm all for a bit of murder as long as it either pertains to useful science that can be weaponized or it's just plain more expedient to shoot a fucker.
>>
>>1557816
*in case the dad doesn't go along

I should always check my post when i'm posting from my phone.
>>
>>1557816
We shouldn't be performing any crimes that'll imply something unnatural. So no letting Melty eat people with witnesses or leaving any trails. Hell, if we can get Pops to open the vault without raising a fuss then take a bunch of cash out the back before taking him back home and killing him and his son it would be the optimal solution.

We want to be quiet and precise right now.
>>
>>1557823
Rather than ransom, what if we just go to their house and hide out till dad comes back from work, get all the info we need from him about the bank, then take care of them and clear out the house. Seems a lot easier than a ransom. Ransoms are lengthy and we have a limited time to get back in to hiding, remember our 48 hours of manhunt aren't through yet.
>>
>>1557779
No fun in it, anyone can torture rape and murder a family it's basically serial killing 101

there is no challenge I mean we're basically a big game hunter where the game is super powered humans
>>
>>1557833
Quiet and precise. While we're being attacked by a 275 pound muscle villain and will most definitely blow up a gas station.
>>
>>1557835
As long as we get some cash quick and quiet we're golden.

The kid's family should have some nice crap if the dad's a bank manager, don't forget their debit card info either, easier to deal with than credit cards.
>>
>>1557833
Yeah you are right i was thinking more of the horror shock that people will have once they know we have pal that can literaly dissolve you. But Sharps blade are as effective then melting.
>>
>>1557816
Hoebstly just kill the dad and his kid or have melts eat them so they go "missing" since it's ultimately better to not have witnesses or a trail to follow as w're still not out of the frying pan yet
>>
>>1557840
They can't tie the gas station exploding to us and won't have any reason to really suspect our involvement. They'll know a gas station exploded but they won't know anything else. The fire will take care of all the tissues and all they will find is the skeleton of a tall man. If he doesn't have fucked up bones, anyway. They'll probably assume it's the remains of the clerk.

It's actually pretty okay to blow this gas station up.
>>
>>1557852
Hopefully he has a gun. I mean he's a rich man and most rich people have a sidearm or a weapon collection.
>>
>>1557838
Speaking of Superheros, We should get a list of all the who's who for heroes whenever we enter a population center. That way we'll figure out how tough a operation will be depending on wether or not the suckers can bend time or no sell explosions.
>>
>>1557862
Sure normal authorities might not be able to tie it to anyone. But supes? also it's walking distance from the bus crash site.
>>
>>1557795
>>1557800
>>1557808

Not that, I propose we be no Joker. We'll become our own version of Darkseid. Once we get to a more global scale I propose we expand our horizons:

Enslave alien races, make our own personal pocket dimensions of torment to make AM shed a tear of joy to put particularly stubborn capes in, sell superpowers to the most depraved of depraved people and let them run wild and cause a clusterfuck of problems for capes, conning any demon who thinks they can pull a fast one on us, build a collection of powers for us to have and then go to killing god-like beings, keeping Cthulhu and company as pets.

>>1557857

Yeah, slow and steady wins the race. Then once we got a good base, we pop up and get to business

>>1557871

Maybe
>>
>>1557862
Nah man if we blow the gas station it may attract more supers. Were aren't prepared to face capes right now.
Besides blowing up a gas station may attract more powerfull supers.
>>
>>1557862
They can tentatively considering it's down the road from where the bus crashed so it's not a huge leap in logic to think something went down

But yeah as long as we take care of any actual evidence that can lead to our involvement being brought to light we should be good
>>
>>1557810
it is but let us understand our inferiors phycolagy to be better prepared
>>
>>1557878
We don't know what investigative capabilities the Supers have. They could have a psychic or a guy who can see through time. But then there's the idea that those people might be somewhere else, or they don't exist. We can only work around what we -know- right now. It'll be suspicious, but it won't be automatic red flag to put them on our trail.

Which is why we keep moving further regardless.
>>
>>1557871
We could probably build a flamethrower with parts at the gas station and cars if we wanted, probably no time though.
>>1557880
I kind of want to be joker though, not as the face of psychopathy or crazy gimmicks, just in the sense we do shit for the fun of it, for the challenge. No real goal in mind, just do what we do cause we can.
>>
>>1557880
if we can do it I'm for it
>>
>>1557880
I'd rather stick with Joker over that business. Can't stress enough how boring this whole lord of suffering bit is.
>>
>>1557891
Our goal is to challenge and kill capes. An anon earlier hit the nail on the head calling us a big game hunter.
>>
>>1557894
same, it we could do it but if we did I'd rather it be more of a joker/darkseid Hybrid, less like a nonfunny all business overlord where you bow or die, but when you're so desperate you'll come to us. You know how insane we are but you also know we can get things done, like making a deal with the devil.
>>
I know it's kinda silly but here me out...

We just leave, steal one of the many cars around and just drive the fuck away
>>
>>1557885
Why spend time on our inferiors psychology at all? Inferior means low, junior, minor. Beneath our interest. Boring.
>>
>>1557900
I like that we hunt capes for the challenge of it, who else is going to give you the most thrill than the champions of the world? so yeah I'm all up for making the main focus of the game hunting heroes.
>>
>>1557891
We could but we just don't have time to spend. Don't forget Wavedick is a super sonic hero so being fast is essential
>>
>>1557891
>I kind of want to be joker though, not as the face of psychopathy or crazy gimmicks, just in the sense we do shit for the fun of it, for the challenge. No real goal in mind, just do what we do cause we can.

THIS! THIS right here is has been the idea of why we are a cape killer because we find it fun, not because we want to change the world, or rule the world or make lots of money or have sex with beautiful women or really even hate capes

We like killing heroes that's it nothing more nothing less
>>
>>1557882
>>1557884
Any crime is going to bring more flak, and this gas station is going to get fucked up in this fight. It's inevitable. We just need to not be here when anyone comes to check it out.

Response time isn't instant, after all. Otherwise they would have caught us the moment that guard tried to raise the alarm, since he did get enough of that sentence out to raise a stink.

>>1557880
Random torture is a bit too much. It serves no purpose. MC is so far motivated more by killing supers than watching things suffer. He didn't flay the super in training when he had the chance after we walked out of a burning building, he just straight up shanked him to death. Then surrendered when a real Super showed up that he couldn't handle.

MC is very much goal oriented. His goal is to kill supers. Torturing them for the sake of torture doesn't further that goal.
>>
>>1557917
We also like the science behind this crazy shit too anon. Figuring out how all these amazing things work and then killing the shit out of em.
>>
>>1557910
We have to get past tiny first. We also need money. Money basically dropped in our lap.
>>
>>1557913
they out number us, know thy enemy and then thou hast the means of victory. besides its inresting how far someone will go for love
>>
>>1557927
I mean I guess to a lesser extent, I assume it's just the intellectual excercise of it and not total mad SCIENCE! Of it all
>>
>>1557910
That's a good plan but we need to hide from the capes for a time. We can't outrun then just hide. When the supes hear about a super villan prison transport was busted. Depending of who was inside it. And judging we got mind taking smoke and melty from it some decents supes might show up.
>>
>>1557917
Not even necessarily just heroes, anyone with enough skill to give us a challenge would be great. Arrogant crime boss thinks we're not giving him enough respect on his turf? make us. Ancient demon wants to take our soul? Love to see how that turns out. Super advanced aliens invade and demand our surrender? Oh look at all the new toys they brought us, and so many new specimens to dissect too!
>>
>>1557932
I'd love my time back from reading the edgy psycho stuff going on in this quest.
>>
>>1557936
Remember we aren't the only ones who got away, smokes is likely of high priority given his nature and tendencies
>>
>>1557938
That's the spirit anon! We should look a bit more on the positive side of life. While we get shit done of course.
>>
>>1557922
So long we blow it up as faraway as we can i'm fine with it then. I'm more worried about tiny causing the explosion by accident while figthing us.
>>
>>1557941
no one but a fictional being can do that, ask the most common of these things..god
>>
>>1557952
Yeah, that would be a big pile of dicks if that happened. We might want to keep him away from the pumps.
>>
>>1557948
YEAH, now who wants to blow up the white house?
Or paint it black, being a villainous troll can be sometimes be fun too.
>>
>>1557941
Yeah I don't want to be edgy. Too many "evil" quests devolve into "Now I must do cliche evil badguy things! And Ow the Edge!". We're a professional, dammit! Sort of. In a way.
>>
>>1557938
>Arrogant crime boss thinks we're not giving him enough respect on his turf?

Dime a dozen and too numerous to not be a pain in the ass barely worth mentioning on the scale of capes if we messed with one more of them would be hot on our ass

>Ancient demon wants to take our soul? Love to see how that turns out.

Only if they mess with us and it's a bit on the fancy side for me personally

> Super advanced aliens invade and demand our surrender?

I mean sure but the Authority is going to be hot on them and we are going to have a LOT of enemies in the authority as a whole
>>
>>1557945
Fact i forgot smokey was more in taking over minds and not blowing stuff up. Guess we can get awaywith blowing up the gas station to cover our tracks.

If anything it might distract the police from our hostile take over of the city's banker house.

I agree don't be edge, but a few cleches are a must. we cant be a good villan unless we monologue slightly. not hours long just find our heros motivation and tear whopping big holes in it.

Maybe Mr.Wolf's deal is we're a big game hunter on safari, we might rob/beat up a thing or two but only the ones that catch our attention are worthy of the hunt...the watching, learning and finally that divine moment of the kill when all the pieces fall together.

Equally given our mind and ability to solve problems we could remain small and elite in our operations, we're the villain other villains go to when they want X "taken care of".

We steal information and run on mass extortion with it, allowing us to only need force when dealing with supers. We're that person that knows everything and has a plan for everyone, step into our club and ask a question...but pay a price

I think a better quirk would be trying to stay neat. Making sure his outfit is straight and not bunched up. Fixing his sleeves and such if he has the chance.

I see what you did there
>>
>>1558230
It might not though because now they gotta prove it, the deranged writings of a madman
>>
>>1558229
Hostages are a delicate thing.

We need to put ample research into who we're kidnapping to do some nasty stuff if we're gonna play up the smart-villain.

The friend of a friend of a cape, for example. They wont think we're gunning for them if we take someone like that, and we can whack 'em with a trap by surprise. The friend of the cape would ask them to look, we plant some "hints" on where they are at a decoy location (spread false word, leave items that relate to the trap spot, etc.), then butcher them by hitting their weak spot.

Taking the cape's friend, and they'll arrived pissed and either ready to fuck shit up or get fucked up, which is a huge gamble.

Otherwise, we should research into POTENTIAL hostages, and look into their connections and schedule. That way, they can be a resource to us if the need ever arises. Daughter of the mayor, a police chief's sister, the mayor / police chief themselves, something like that. Oh, and we should buy the appropriate supplies. Zipties, cuffs, ropes, locked rooms, the works.

We're incredibly lucky we have Melty to dispose of bodies. Otherwise we'd either have to cut the parts and bury them in a small, vertical hole, or melt them ourselves with chems. We may be supervillains, but we still gotta lie low for the time being. They'll just as well send The Authority to take us out again once they find our location.

I still think blowing up the gas station is the smarter option here after we're done. Think of it this way, since this place is so banged up it's obvious there was a conflict of some sort. Because the cash register is where it is now and damaged as it is we can't put it back and expect no one to notice. It'll be visibly damaged since cash registers nowadays has plastic casings. This one will be damaged even more than dropping it would damage it since it was thrown by a very, very strong dude. So it's clear it wasn't a normal thug who came in and robbed the place or something. A smarter investigator (or a crazier one) would probably put two and two together that someone incredibly strong came in here and started some crazy shit. Since this is within the immediate search area for the crashed bus they can then safely assume that the big guy from the bus whose body is not present escaped and came this way. If they don't find his body here because we, say, fed it to Melty, that means to them who don't know Melty ate him that he went this way and they'll expand their search to find the strong man. If we leave his body all mangled by Sharp or ourselves that means another person from the bus took him down, since a normal person probably couldn't, and if they did they would report it to the police immediately so they'd already have the killer accounted for but no one called it in so that rules that out.

Meanwhile, if we blow this place the fuck up while leaving the body to burn it can explain why the place is busted up, and why the cash register is way in the back with the fridges while still making it seem like just a freak accident. They'll have an unidentifiable body (at least initially, assuming they have dental records of this guy they can use that but it would still give us ample time to GTFO without suspicion) which they'll likely attribute to the clerk and we can get out of the search area more easily by making look at least on the surface that no one from the bus made it out here.

Naturally they will find evidence of Melty in the fields coming into town eventually, though, so staying here isn't viable. We really need to get a way to transport him/her/it anonymously.

we can build a high-power x-ray laser out of a tube tv, a micriwave oven, a tennis ball and 12 hairties and we want a gun? pfsssssh.

>>1558694
Its settled then, we going I SCREAM truck for melty disguise.
.... I might be slightly deranged
>>
>>1558694
I like it I suggest we do this by having Sharp get outside and start sutting the fuel lines so everything gets soaked.

Melty gets the fuck outta dodge, if I've learned anything Fire counters "The Thing". So Melty Secures an escape around back hopefully while we (since we're the target kite big boy around until Sharp has done his bit). We then Kite him into and and hose him with fuel.

Then or the finally we throw a match which we used to light a cigar we stole from our current location to blow him sky high even if we are somewhat in the radius. Let Mr muscles over there look into the eyes of a mad genius as his body acts as the shield protecting us from the blast.

>>1558759
We don't have time to build said laser. Guns are usefull when you don't have time to build death machines and you want to scare or take out some normies.

Besides i think it would be easier and faster to make dragon breath bullets. Or napalm bullets then build a entire weapon with our limited resources.

>>1558759
we have to start somewhere, a gun is somewhere
>>
>>1558832
agreed, but a knife is better. quiet. then we need a silencer for a gun
>>
Remember folks Guns for show, Knives for a pro

>>1558834
we could probably make a makeshift silencer for the gun, plus we could use part of it for our ray gun, like the grip and trigger. It would be a lot more comfy to hold.
>>
When we got the time afrer we acquire a base of operations, we should investigate the local hitmen.

Not to hire them, but be aware of them and prepare countermeasures for the particularly dangerous ones.

Started drinking last night and things got a little out of hand. Anyways.

"Look, the mist wasn't only affecting the driver. He attacked me too, we are all victims." You say as you raise your hands. He doesnt seem to care for words as he slams his fingers into the ground ripping up a pearly white ceramic tile.

He pulls back and throws the tile, frisbee style, directly for your chest.

Let's see if he can resist meatball acidity

Eh, if you didn't get thrown out of a bar, cause mass property damage, or end up in jail you're probably fine.

Well guess we ain't recruiting him.

How many dead hookers are we talking about?

Also glad to see you QM. You sure nobody spiced your drink?
>>
>>1559305
Dodge away.

If he's got any brains, he'll charge us while we're ducking.

Keep your eyes on him. Look for anything nearby to stab into his throat.
>>
dodge, then send meat to consume him
>>
>>1559505
Sharp is a walking knife. We also have a knife too.
>>
>>1559559
Still, I advocate my idea of using a fire extinguisher to coat his lungs and get Melty down his throat. Rushing in to fight this guy seems...less than ideal.
>>
>>1559573
Get in to try that is just as dangerous as trying to stab the guy. Sadly we don't have any real ranged options.

We should totally pepper spray the fuck out of his eyes though. Debilitate and destroy.
>>
>>1559305
>step to the side so that it misses banter a little ask who is brother was

we just need to step out of the trectory and not duck and risk him charging us when we are distraced
>>
You duck as the piece of floor goes spinning over your head and into the wall behind you, with a quick peak you see the corner has lodged itself in the wall.

"Look, why dont we both calm down and just discuss things. Tell me about your brother."

His face goes a deep crimson.

"You dont get to talk about him, I'll tear your fucking throat out!" It's almost more a primal roar than him yelling at you but the effect is the same, you feel your arm hairs stand on end. How exhilarating.

You watch as he picks up the crumpled door frame and rips a long bar of metal from it. He starts to advance.

"Matter of fact, I think I'll use your head as a piñata. Or maybe I'll start at the knees."

You crouch slightly and start looking around for any weapon be feel a hand on your shoulder. Sharp looks at you.

"Let me handle him, Boss"

>You already tried, Sharp. Let me show you how it's done.
>I was hoping you'd take this one
>If you insist
>Other
>>
>>1559753
Sharp should distract him while we have Meatball attack and eat him. Co-operation, y'know
>>
if you insist sharp, go at it

then when they are distracted, send meatball in to consume his leg
>>
>>1559753
>>If you insist
I was curious how effective your "beauties" are anyways.

Be ready to step in, less than ideal scenario Sharp is a distraction.
>>
>>1559753
>>If you insist

Naturally we should start making an ad-hock spear so we can stab the shit out of him when he's distracted or when Sharp starts losing. No reason to fight fair. If we had time I'd suggest we check the truck out back for a gun, clerk might've been a hunter. You never know.
>>
>>1559771
If Sharp can't do it with special arm blades, a spear probably won't do that well either. Time to get creative.
>>
>>1559753
>If you insist
Let's give him a shot, or at least long enough to get the gas ready for a makeshift flame thrower.
>>
>>1559800
Seriously the most solid way to kill this guy is to set him on fire. Even if it d
