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 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.For updates on scheduled run times: https://twitter.com/PapaSlink

>>1556001>A. Cisco is a pretty great guy. Intelligent, funny, and apparently a decent fighter. If you wanted, you could tap him as an all-around helpful individual. He could gather information with his technological know-how, and maybe even help you out in a fight every now and again. Who knows, he might make a good sidekick if you ever clue him in.

>B. Franchesca is an interesting young woman. Pragmatic, compassionate, and (if she’s to be believed) psychic. If you wanted, you could tap her as a source of information. She’s likely to be a wealth of information, given her psychic abilities-- not to mention her large network of friends. She does owe you a favor, after all. Who knows, she might make a good sidekick if you ever clue her in.She seems like she could use a friend.
>>1555989>C. The Wonder Twins are amazing. Powerful, well-meaning and you’re already on their good side. If you wanted, you could tap them as muscle. They’ve got some interesting abilities, and having them on your side would just make you all the more effective of a force.

Y'all impatient.-------------------------------------------------------------You finish packing your super suit into its case, then shove it into the corner of your room with a kick. The busted helmet is an obvious issue. You’re going to need to either fix it, or use something else in the interim. At this point it’s just a hazard. As for your heroism in general, you’ve got a few options swimming around your head. The Flash mentioned the Rogues being unusually active, even for Super Villains, and crime in general spiking drastically in Central City. While Flash is busy taking care of the bulk of the issue, you could look into the cause of the spike in crime, and maybe even find out why the Rogues are so active as of late. The two are most likely connected.You’ve met a good few people who can help you out with this, if you were so inclined to ask them for support. >A. Cisco is a pretty great guy.

You tug the shirt Flash let you borrow (though you doubt he’ll want it back) off and collapse onto your bed, falling into a deep sleep almost immediately. Exhaustion has become a lot more common since you moved to Central City. With all the physical activity, fighting and damn near dying on the daily, you’re slowly starting to perfect the art of sleep management, or rather, managing to function off of five or so hours a night. Brrrrrrring! The alarm goes off, and you almost toss your phone at the wall. Irritating, that thing is. Noisy and jarring, though you guess that would be the point. What’s the day, even? You’ve started to lose track. Not a good habit. You check the calendar on your phone, and sigh in relief. Monday, first of October. Good, at least you didn’t miss a school day. You groggily go through your morning ritual, then gingerly make your way down the steps leading to the first floor. No one’s here.A plate with a cold piece of bacon and scrambled eggs sits on the squat dining table in your cow-print decorated kitchen. Your father must have finished up early and went off to do whatever it is he does when he isn’t working. Come to think of it, you aren’t really sure what your dad does outside of working and reading the news. Never bothered to ask. You frown at the food, but scarf it down anyway, hunger winning out over picky preferences. You grab your backpack and sling it over your shoulder, then shoulder the front door open.>A. Go straight to school. Learn things. Speak with friendly people. A little normality spiced into your heroic life will do you some good. Plus Cisco is almost guaranteed to be there. >B. Skip school. Head somewhere to train. Academics are fine and all, but you can afford to take a day off to get in shape. You’re still a little-- A lot sore from the museum incident though.>C. Write-In

>>1556238Booster Gold and Elongated Man get work, I'm sure we'd be fine.
>>1556231Nigga I doubt they're going to provide food for you in the fucking hall of justice, and that is even IF they let you join! Besides we need something to wow our future waifu. When you're surrounded by super-people 24/7 it must get kinda mundane.
>>1556254I'm pretty sure the watchtower and hall of justice actually do have living facilities.
>>1556254That's why you impress them by killing Doomsday or using our speed to run across the globe to punch someone.
>>1556278Yeah, but in the mean time, we need a job man. We can't live like a fucking parasite off our father who we kind of alienated, and neither the watch tower nor hall of justice are even concepts yet. >>1556280>Killing Doomsday >Even having to face him>pic related
>>1556280Running around the globe will be a super annoying for someone like us since we can only go in a straight line. Besides, we should always have a backup plan. Betting on the fact that the JL will provide for us (that is if we get invited) is both super lame, and stupid. Let's not leech of other peoples money.
>>1556213>>1556214>>1556216>>1556217>>1556218The cold Autumn air assaults you the moment you set foot out your front door. You zip the green and white rugby jacket you’re wearing up, and shove your hands into pockets in an attempt to keep them toasty. You start off on your way to Leawood High, taking in the ever-more familiar sights. Landmarks are starting to make themselves apparent now that you’ve walked these streets so many times, the gnarled tree that marks you should take the next right, the ancient woman sitting on her porch giving you a stern, milky-eyed glare indicating you’re about halfway there, and so on. Patterns. Once you’re on the gently inclined street leading up to Leawood High School, you feel a little relieved. Sure, school isn’t fun by any stretch of the imagination-- unless you’re one of those people who see public school as a government funded social hive, learning optional, but it’s one of the only places that feels normal. Even your own home unsettles you sometimes, what with the tension between you and your father and the hero suit sitting in the corner of your room at all times, reminding you that you could be out there saving lives every minute you spend dicking around on the internet. You’re early, as is made clear by a few groups of teenagers with backpacks slung over their shoulders hanging around past the front gates. You casually jaywalk across a street, then walk through the gates, only for a thick hand to clutch at your collar and slam you against the inside of the gate. Confused more than anything, you blink wide-eyed at the kid holding you up against the gate. You recognize him, the fat guy in your homeroom. His pudgy face is red, brow furrowed, practically snarling at you.What was this guy’s name again? More importantly, what the hell does he think he’s doing? You try and push him off, but his grip is surprisingly strong, that and he’s heavy enough to keep you pinned against the gate with his weight alone.>A. Tell him to let you go, and ask him why he’s getting all handsy.>B. Hit him. Screw this kid. You aren’t about to let some whale rough you up! You’re a Superhero.>C. Cover your face and ask him not to hit you.>D. Use your power in this very public setting. >E. Write-In

>>1556319Where's Flash and Vibe on that scale? I imagine Flash is at least an 8.
>>1556307Faster than the Flash if the two of you go on a straight run. Everything's slightly less ridiculous in this Questverse though, so no running around the planet for punching. You can build up speed to enhance your punches though.
>>1556308>>1556309>>1556311>>1556317>>1556330>>1556333You wrap your hands around the kid’s wrist, and look him right in the eye.“Wanna clue me in on what the hell you think you’re doing? Let me go,” you tell the kid sternly, a peaceful solution that earns you a right hook to the jaw. The impact rattles you, your face feeling numb as you stumble away from the gate and your overweight attacker. He let you go after hitting you, but after looking over your shoulder, you can tell he isn’t done. He isn’t in any fighting stance, but he’s got another hand up ready to punch you in the back of the head.You duck out of the way, watching his jiggling arm shoot past you, and shove him, forcing him off his feet. The kid hits the ground hard, but gets up rather quickly. This time, his hands are up, and he’s eyeing you through angry, beady little eyes. What the hell did you do to piss this kid off? You try and think back on what you’ve done over the school year so far, but nothing stands out.The teenagers grouped up around the school have started to take notice, and the two of you are attracting a little crowd that’s growing by the second. You suddenly feel a rush of adrenaline. You’re being watched. You steal a few glances at the crowd, but most of the faces blend together. You recognize a few-- The prim and proper blonde girl from your homeroom, Anna. Her name seems to connect a few synapses in your brain and you remember the fat kid’s name is Carl. Carl Cho. Another few classmates whose names you can’t remember catch your eye as well.Cho comes rushing at you, meaty fists flying.>A. Meet his charge, you can kick this kid’s ass. You aren’t about to go down in front of all these people.>B. Go on the defensive, and call upon what little training you have to help you out.

>>1556429Meh, a pass is a pass
>>1556429You raise your fists and widen your stance just in time for Cho to rush in and thwack you with a big, meaty right hook. You were able to block it, but the impact is still enough to force you to stumble. He tosses another, and another, and you can’t seem to do anything but dodge and block his heavy fists. Now that you’re fighting him, Cho seems worth more than a glance. You have to get a good idea of what you’re up against.About a head shorter than you but twice as wide, Carl Cho shouldn’t be the one pressing the attack here. Still, he’s a ball of energy, even as his size, and the punches never seem to stop coming. A couple of the kids in the ‘going nowhere in life’ crowd laugh and cheer the two of you on, while most of the other onlookers gaze upon the spectacle in silent reverence. What is it about fighting that interests them so much? Finally, you’re able to force some space yourself and the fat slugger, and catch your breath. Sure, he’s sweating, but he isn’t huffing like a fat guy should be after exerting that much energy. Must be riding a sugar high or something. You brace yourself as he shoots forward, and manage to sidestep a huge left hook, countering with one of your own-- smashing right into his pudgy face. You put a lot of power in that one, but he only seems to get angrier.Cho suddenly rushes you and wraps his arms around your waist, and you struggle to keep him from tackling you to the ground. Cho scrunches his eyes shut when you start hammer-fisting his blubbery back over and over, eventually giving up on the tactic and shoving you away instead. You stumble but do not fall, and a few people start to comment on the fight.“Fuck him up, Cho! He prolly stole your twinkie!” one student calls out.“Man, the fat kid’s gonna get reamed. What’s the other one’s name? Dick?” another one asks loudly.“The tall one’s kinda hot,” you hear a girl murmur, distracting you for a moment.Cho shoots forward and manages to put you in a bear hug, lifting you off the ground.

>>1556551Your ribs ache and pound at the pressure put on them, and for just a split second, you contemplate using your power. You push that thought aside, instead opting for something a little less overkill. You raise an arm, and bring down the thunder with an elbow to the crown of Cho’s head. He winces, but only digs his head into your chest as he continues to squeeze-- eliciting a sharp cry out of you.“Fuck, that hurts!” you grunt, before elbowing Cho again, and again, and again! You start to see blood trickle from out behind one of his ears, and keep hitting him until your elbow hurts. Eventually, he relents and falls to the ground, clutching his skull. You stand there, holding your sides, and watch Cho squirm on the blacktop. You could keep hitting him. Teach him a lesson. Carl Cho has been a menace to the school for as long as you’ve been here. You don’t know why he keeps picking fights with people, but from what you’ve heard it’s just something he does. Breaking something might keep him out of everyone’s hair for awhile, maybe earn you a few pats on the back from the students. Why would anyone let assholes like this just keep doing what they do? It’s pointless, and annoying.The blonde girl from your homeroom, Anna, is the first to step forward. She’s wearing a blue cardigan and dress shirt, along with a conservative dress. She frowns at you for a moment, and you notice why. Your fists are still clenched, and you get the feeling you’ve got that mad dog look you’ve seen your father get when he’s really, really angry. Never directed at you, but you’ve seen him fight a few people. Back when your mom was alive, and he still drank. in Supermarket parking lots and behind bowling alleys when guys wouldn’t stop oggling your mom. He promised to stop drinking after that.Cho springs up from the ground and throws a punch you’re able to dodge rather easily, but Anna gets knocked the fuck out instead, unconscious before she even hits the ground. …>A.

>>1556621>C. Subdue Cho.Breaking his arm will only make us look bad to the people that matter.i.e whoever dolls out punishments at this school and our dad and fuck it, cisco would't like that.
>>1556670Plenty of people who get into fights at school. Teach the asshole a lesson and stop him from picking on other people.
>>1556670I mean, I saw my brother get his head stomped on after a kid sucker punched him to the ground from behind once. You're acting like teens don't get incredibly violent for little to no reason.
>>1556670I've seen it happen, when your in a fight you're trying to hurt someone really bad, that's kind of the point. Cho's a bitch and the only reason I didn't vote to break his are is because we've been gone from school for two days and we don't need any more negative attention from the school or shit from our dad. Plus we don't need the other kids to start building us up to be some punk or psychopath.
>>1556681He picked on some people we beat him up. We don't need to break is arm in addition. That's excessive force.
>>1556697He's a giant bully people would probably be happy he got his shit pushed in.
>>1556698How many times do you think this guy broke someone else's arm? Or stole their money? Or sent them home bloody? Asshole deserves much more than a broken arm.
>>1556686You are just describing what we where about the become if we picked b. He was already beat. Breaking the arm after he is lying down sounds pretty similar to what you are describing if you ask me.
>>1556708You tell me, because so far we have learned that he is a bully that starts fights. We have heard nothing about him being breaking peoples arms at random.
>>1556709We didn't start the fight and this guy has plenty of shit to be punished for.
>>1556708>hurt this guy because he may have done something bad before!>no evidence to prove anything>but do it anyway tho!
>>1556698>>1556709I mean, he did just knock a girl unconscious, that's pretty dickish even by street fight standard, and he does kind of deserve it but either way subduing him won so why argue?
>>1556723Because we dodged out of the way. He is an asshole, but that was an accident. Red the post.
>>1556709>>1556722Nigga just because we break a shit kid's arm we're not gonna become Darksied or the radiation guy who wanted to fuck Supergirl and destroyed New Krypton
>>1556709Not really. My brother didn't instigate the fight. And he was getting back up to probably push the other kid's face in. My brother also did not start fights on the reg or bully kids. He talked mad shit all the time but he never bullied anyone. If I was able to get there before my brother's friends stepped in I would have bashed the kid's head against the brick-made planter behind him. And you have to understand the difference between being reactive and proactive. If we just rough him up and let him go he'll probably be back at being a piece of shit within the week. If we break his arm he won't do shit for at least a month. I'd rather teach him not to fuck with us wholesale rather than that he needs to sucker punch us because he doesn't want a straight up fight. Saves us trouble down the line.
>>1556722We know he's causes plenty of shit before and hasn't been expelled or stopped by the school, no reason why we shouldn't make him stop.
>>1556732You act like the only way to get him to stop is by being more violent. This is an assault and should be reported to the school. If for some reason that doesn't work we could go to the police. What he did was illegal, and in front of lot's of witnesses.
>>1556755See the thing is I get what you're saying, but there's a major difference between what should happen and what usually does happen. Trust me, you'd actually have to have been in or seen multiple fights to get what we're talking about.
Besides, we don't even know if breaking is his arm will stop him. It might, but it could also end up with him coming back later with a grudge.
>>1556755The school which has thus far not stepped in and stopped this kid from being a bully. Or put him in juvie MAYBE where he will still be an angry little shit. It's honestly safer and more surefire to make him regret what he's done immediately.
>>1556755And to that I respond that this is DC. Beating the tar out of criminals and earning enough of their respect can actually get you to be head of an island nation state>pic not related
>>1556767It works for batman, but eitherway we're not going to break his arm anyway, why argue about theoreticals? You're not going to change peoples' minds about it.
>>1556755>Superhero bitching to the police about a bullyYou make me sick.
>>1556759Are you saying that if you where attacked out of the blue in front of multiple eyewitnesses, going to your local police station would do nothing? I find that hard to believe.
>>1556780What he did is literally illegal. It's called assault, look it up. There is nothing wrong with reporting a crime to the police.
>>1556678Fighting back an overwhelming, primal instinct screaming in the back of your head for you to just break this fucker so he can’t hurt anyone else-- you let out a frustrated expletive, then punch Cho right in his fat face. Cho stumbles, and tries to put his fists up, but you tackle him to the ground and end up putting him in a choke hold. Students flood your vision, some jogging away from the scene, some moving to help Anna come back to the land of the conscious, and even a few shuffle over to try and pull you off of this fatass in your grip.A pair of strong hands tugs you to your feet, and you turn to see a man in a police uniform-- No, a security guard with a well trimmed beard and a frown the curve of the moon. He roughly turns you back around and drags you away from Cho, who gets taken in another direction by two teachers, one of which being Dudley. You should be getting less angry, but you don’t. That asshole pisses you off. This security guard pisses you off. Having to hold back pisses you off! The guard turns you around to face him and shoves you against the brick wall concrete-mixed sidewall of the school. He searches your eyes for a moment, and you glare back at him. Eventually, your shoulders get a little less tense, and you manage to let go a breath you didn’t know you were holding. “Alright, you calmed down yet? Taking you to the principal’s office. I don’t want you trying to kick Carl’s ass again,” Security asks, an annoyed look strewn across his features.You nod after taking another breath, but note how he used Carl’s name instead of just calling him another teenager. He either knows the kid or has dealt with this enough to have the name memorized. You’re betting on the latter. A pang of anger has you clenching your fist, but you let it go. You held yourself back. He attacked you, and you simply stopped him from hurting you and others. Isn’t that why you wanted to learn to fight?>Contnued
>>1556678Damn it. Too late to break Mr. Chow.Mr. Chow is definitely going to be his Supervillain name, btw.
>>1556795You are such a faggot.
>>1556789Sure, because high school kids snitch unless they're caught in the middle of it. I'm not saying it's a thing that should happen, it sucks actually, but it does, and to answer your question yes I have>>1556795Tell that to stupid teenagers.
>>1556789You'd actually be surprised. That shit happens all the fucking time. A lot of people won't speak up even when asked directly, mostly because they don't want to seem involved in any way. Sometimes because of some backwards "no snitching" moral they have.
>>1556797The Principal’s office is small, un-decorated and sorely lacking any visible means of organization. Filing cabinets are everywhere, half open with papers and folders sticking out of them, while the other half are labeled in an order distinctly non-alphabetical. You’re sitting in a plastic bucket of a chair next to Carl Cho, who fumes in silence with that security officer’s hand gripping his shoulder. Luckily, he’s out of arm’s reach-- otherwise you’d be too worried about him socking you to pay attention.You’ve already given your account of the incident, as has Cho. He was surprisingly honest about the hole thing, except for the part about you starting it. Punk deserves another few elbows. Witnesses gave their take on the fight, and shitty footage was pulled from the school’s out of date security cameras that barely even caught the fight.The birdlike African American woman sitting across from the two of you narrows her eyes to squint through her too-small-for-her-face glasses resting near the tip of her long nose. She sticks a pencil into her muss of graying black hair, for safe keeping you guess, then clears her throat.“The both of you are to blame for Miss Schmidt’s injury.

>>1556795It's a schoolyard asshole and this school doesn't have nearly enough black people to warrant security, much less a police investigation. Take your lumps like a man, put on your big boy pants and stop whinning like a little bitch. We have the means to subdue him physically, he attacked us, knocked someone ELSE out in the process, and is an all around asshole. I don't have a father figure and you don't see me picking fights. It's a question of character, and this guy needs to be brought down a few notches the way only a good old fashion beatdown can.
>>1556803>C. Shrug and take it. You know how this goes. >D. Write-InJust say "Yeah sure I'll take your bullshit punishment. But maybe next time you should deal with the known bullies in the school before they start shit, or at least have security that deals with situations before a crowd gathers."
>B. Explain that Cho assaulted you and he should be the one getting the brunt of the punishment. Also he hit that girl, not you.This probably won't work, but it's better than to antagonize the woman responsible for our punishment.
>>1556803>>C. Shrug and take it. You know how this goes.Fighting on school grounds regardless of the instigator results in suspension for both parties 99% of the time. The only way to not get in trouble in a fistfight at school is to sit there and get the piss beat out of you. Hell, even then you sometimes get suspended.

>>1556842I never said anything regarding how common aggressive teenagers are. I was arguing about how it should be handled.
>>1556851I'm saying "sticking up for ourselves" is being a whiny child who doesn't realize that it doesn't matter what he says, because we don't have anything to prove it. All we have is our pride. So take the punishment, and take a shot at how shitty it is, but don't beg like a bitch to be let off.
>>1556851Beat him up, claiming we didn't stand up for ourselves. OK dude. Just because we didn't break a downed guy's arm doesn't mean we let people walk all over us.
>>1556859>So take the punishment, and take a shot at how shitty it is, but don't beg like a bitch to be let off.your the type of person who would go to prison for something you didn't do and not try and stop it arnt you

Rolled 54 (1d100)>>1556878
>>1556889True, but a principal doesn't give a shit. It's our word versus Cho's and his friend's. Nobody is going to snitch on our behalf. Don't be dense. We got blindsided, and now we're getting fucked.
The problem isn't that he started the fight, it's that there was a fight. They don't give two shits who started it or why. All they care is that you were fighting on school grounds. That is exactly how schools look at it.
>>1556903I understand that, doesn't mean we shouldn't be pissed off about it.
>>1556908You can be pissed about something without bitching about it. New concept for you, it seems.
>>1556916It's called having emotions and not spending time trying to please everyone we meet.
>>1556926Who's trying to please somebody? Is it worth giving this tubby, lard motherfucker the satisfaction of whining to the principal in front of him? No. Fuck that. He doesn't deserve the satisfaction. We'll take our lumps.
>>1556941I wouldn't consider just calling this out for the bullshit it is and then leaving whining.
I have lost a lot of respect and enjoyment of this quest after this dumbass bullshit situation
>>1556949It's exactly what it is, and if you don't realize that, then grow up.
>>1556955How so? Genuine question.
>>1556955It was honestly an argument that was going to come up at some point, are we Superman or Batman?
>>1556964this was done for dumb drama bullshit and nothing else and nothing moreI would take drama with the MC's Dad then this shit atlest that makes more sense then randomly attacked because reasons
>>1556878…The fuck?“Wait, what? You’re suspending me? Cho’s been beating people up for no damn reason for who knows how long, and when I’m next up on the chopping block and defend myself, I get punished? What is wrong with you?” You ask the principal incredulously. You notice a namestand thing buried beneath a mountain of discarded notes and papers reading Mrs. Addles. Oh she’s addled alright.“Mister Regal,” Mrs. Addles replies calmly, having heard this a million times before, no doubt. “The only reason neither you nor Mister Cho here are in police custody, is Miss Schmidt refused to put the blame on anyone. She’s very adamant about not pressing charges or doing anything of the sort. Count yourself lucky this is all you’re dealing with. Regardless, the two of you fought on school grounds. You will be punished.”She completely sidestepped you pointing out Cho’s been doing this for a long time. You’re about to bring it up again when she raises her voice, drawn-on eyebrow quirked at you.“I’m not done,” She sternly mentions, then goes on to explain how the suspension works. You get work meant to be done in school while out of school, and have to have it all done by the time you get back. Coming back before your suspension is up will result in consequences.. yadda yadda, punishment punishment. All in all it’s pretty standard, but damn if it doesn’t sting. You did nothing wrong.Cho doesn’t bother to speak.“That will be all. You may go home now, Mister Regal,’ Addles dismisses you, before steepling her fingers in Cho’s direction. Everyone just kind of waits for you to leave, and eventually, you do, seething.It’s lunch time, but you’re going to have to have whatever’s in your fridge. You practically boot the front doors off their hinges, and stomp out of the building, only to see a familiar figure chewing on a burrito near the gates. Cisco. He’s standing near a thin redhead, who seems to be enjoying his sense of humor. The girl’s face is red with laughter.>A. Approach them before you leave. You wanted to talk to Cisco anyway.>B. Storm past them. You are not in the mood for this. Gotta blow off some steam.>C. Sneak away all mysterious-like. No need to let Cisco see you all huffy.>D. Write-In
>>1556967ya but there are other and better ways of going about it then this way.
>>1556973>A plot point happens for unknown reasons>Doesn't wait for the plot to be explained, and just rage quits the quest, instead
>>1556955I suspect it's just to get us out of school so we can A) have crazy bad fallout with our dad and force that situation to be worse than it already is for some reason and B) let us get on with trying to be an amateur hero instead of having to go to school all the time.But yeah, the characters and motivations don't make any sense. How many dozens of eyewitnesses watched us get dragged into a fight over quite literally nothing, and the local authority decides to give us a massively over-the-top punishment and assumes that we're the guilty party without so much as speaking to another student about what happened? It's not good. Worse, there was never a better option. We took every choice the de-escalated the situation except the one to literally just standing there and letting him put us in the hospital. I don't see any way that any set of choices that were given would have given us a better outcome.
>>1556973I don't know, Bully attacking someone out of nowhere feels pretty real.>>1556982It just came up because this was the first time this really came up.
>>1556980>>A. Approach them before you leave. You wanted to talk to Cisco anyway.
>>1556985Slinky's definitely got some problems.

>>1556980>>B. Storm past them. You are not in the mood for this. Gotta blow off some steam.Time to beat the shit out of some criminals.>>1556985Don't underestimate people not wanting to be a snitch in high school.
>>1556955>>1556973>>1556982>>1556985Sorry you feel that way. Accomplishing a little more than that through this situation, but feel free to criticize to your heart's content.It helps.
>>1556985>doesn't understand how schools operate in regards to fightsShort of God himself coming down and telling them not to punish us, we were going to get punished for this. That is how the stupid system they have in place works. It is exactly like this in reality as well. Even if every single person there said "No, fatass started it" it wouldn't change the outcome. Especially with a hardass principle.
>>1556980>C. Sneak away all mysterious-like. No need to let Cisco see you all huffy.Let's just get out of here.
>>1556980>C. Sneak away all mysterious-like. No need to let Cisco see you all huffy.Man, I want to talk to Cisco but with our current mood we might mess with his chances with this girl
>>1556985In case you haven't pieced it together, Cho probably has a father. That father probably does something. The administration seems like they turn a blind-eye to what Cho does for the most part. I see a plot, do you?
>>1556998>>1557000>>1557022>>1557027Tie. Next breaks it.
>>1556980>B. Storm past them. You are not in the mood for this. Gotta blow off some steam.

>>1557033I don't give a shit if you act like a thug you get treated like a thug if he has daddy issues he should call the cops instead of being a little bitch about it and starting fightsand where the fuck did you pull that dumbass reasoning their was no mention of his parents or parent at all so you decided that must be the reason
>>1557056I'm saying that because thug kids normally learn how to be that way. You think school events can't get tied in to super events in a super quest? Let me laff at you. HA.>>1557055That's obviously jokes. Calm down.
>>1557075>You think school events can't get tied in to super events in a super quest? But he didn't say that.
>>1557075>I'm saying that because thug kids normally learn how to be that way. You think school events can't get tied in to super events in a super quest? Let me laff at you. HA.never said that it could I just said you made this up since their is no evedince to back up your reasoning also this is a DC quest where people are evil because they want to be evil
>>1557084>>1557082I just figured>Villains acting in new, unprecedented way>We get attacked by a kid with a Supervillain bait name by being fat and named Cho>We get disgraced by said kid, and treated unfairly when we tell the truthThat's by the numbers plot for discovering a new crime lord in town.

>>1557118I'm sorry if it really was where you were going with it. Don't hate me.
I vote we impossibly fuck up the principals car like go off and the speed straight through the thing
>>1557127Yeah but y tho?
>>1556994Not that it's a bad quest, of course. I've very much enjoyed it. And this is par for the course in any quest, eventually. Even DBZ human quest, my all time favorite, had the dynamite kick fiasco. I was there through all of that, and after.I think the real problem here is that the situation feels contrived, but has major repercussions. We didn't have a failed roll, or a way out of the situation, but now that we've achieved the ostensibly best outcome (the worst being a trip to the ER courtesy of the meatbag we fought), we're more or less going to collapse our fragile relationship with our sole surviving family member when he finds out that we've been suspended for a month for fighting on top of disappearing for three days and god knows what else. All because of half a sessions worth of choices that shouldn't have been a big deal.If we were to have gotten an outcome this bad out of a real cape fight, I would expect it to be multiple failed rolls against a serious opponent. Last thread, a totally failed roll on a decision everyone said was horrible during a brawl with a serious villain in a hostage situation gave us no major losses except a bruised rib and an unexpected trip to low earth orbit. This thread, no failed rolls and no obviously bad decisions just gave us the worst non-life-or-death consequence we could reasonably get from school.I don't mind a bit of a contrived plot. And like a lot of people have said, this sort of thing could totally happen in a real public school. However, having results this bad from choices that weren't particularly below-par in any way just reinforces the idea that our actions and their consequences don't necessarily line up. For a quest, that kind of thinking is vital, and this sort of narrative damages it. If we had gotten detention or been sent home for a day, I would be all for it. It could be an interesting narrative and we would probably meet some neat character in detention or something. Better, we could have introduced Cho as a character without the fallout with our dad. Now we're actually *losing* narrative options. School is out the window. Cisco and Franchesca are going to be harder to get in touch with because we won't see them every day. Every narrative that might have been introduced at a public school is on hiatus for a month of suspension. And all because of a major disconnect between how bad our choices were and how bad the consequences are. It reinforces the idea that Slinky is in total control, which reduces player agency.That sort of thing happens in real life, but it makes a pretty anti-fun quest.>>1557125>Implying Slinky isn't actually a cosmic-level DC villain, capable of seeing every quest thread in ever reality simultaneously, and isn't actually a devious mastermind going for the quadruple fake
>>1557131Cause fuck em
>>1557131Spite, anger. Gives us some flaws to work through as a character for our character to evolve from.

I still remember when we went around to the other boards and got /x/ and /b/ to give us their energy for the spitir bomb.It's part of why I'm such a fan of this quest. Seeing an old setting from a fresh perspective really adds something to a quest.>>1557146Homeless mutant was one of my other favorites, but DBZ Human Quest had hype like no other. I should probable have guessed that mentioning an all-time favorite quest would immediately derail my post with a bunch of replies accusing me of shit taste, huh?
>>1557135I get what you're saying about not getting any better results out of it, but what were you expecting? Mary Sue quest: the revengening? It's not a bad thing for something frustrating to happen to us. Bad things happen, and we have to overcome that, despite the shitty lot that we drew. If you hate challenge that much then why try at all? If you don't want to work for your friendships, do you even want them in the first place?We are in a bad situation, and, as questers, we're the ones who need to find our way out of it. We have a complex series of problems, and we aren't getting our solution handed to us on a silver platter.

>>1557042>>1557045You could speak to Cisco, maybe explain what’s going on and bring up the investigation you wanted to get him involved him. Sure, you could do that, but that’s simply not in the cards right now. You aren’t in the mood for this. You have to blow off some steam. Cisco doesn’t even notice you, obviously too engulfed in entertaining his ladyfriend. Good. Good for him. Marching past your friend and the girl he’s chatting up, you exit the gates and walk home, thinking back on what just happened. Given some time to process, it still makes little sense. Public schools are terrible about this stuff, you’re aware, but for it to be that cut and dry? No. That’s bullshit. It has to be something else. You start to concoct a slew of conspiracy theories, from a mob boss father to connections in the school board, to him being a psychic manipulator, but all of these start to wander into doubtful ponderings of the very possible… and probable explanation of life just not being fair.You shake off the events that just transpired, and instead look to the future. The bright side of things. Sure, you might be out of school for awhile, but that just means you’ll have even more time to train, investigate what’s been going on with the spike in crime and maybe even meet up with Flash again. He knows all these famous heroes, right? Maybe if you play your cards right, you can do some networking. That fat fuc-- Cho. Cho might have screwed you over by attacking you out of nowhere, but he’s been suspended as well. That and you messed him up way more than he hurt you. Without knowing the reasons behind his attack, you can’t really know whether or not you stopped him from getting what he wanted. Still, you put him out of school for awhile. That’s a win, right? Franchesca’s still going to be in school for awhile, so you can’t just go to her place and see what she’s up to. Cisco’s at school for awhile as well. You’re all alone, at least for the next few hours. Unless…>A. Call the Costume Woman, Sara. You’ve got a broken helmet. Plus, you might have gathered enough information on that watch of yours.

SOM's quests can be amusing if you don't take them seriously and just shitpost, but he's a very samey writer and he always gets too butthurt about his playerbase and throws fits and manufactured drama all the time the moment stuff doesn't go his way.

Let's be sure to sit back, relax, do the quest, and talk about waifus and what villains we can fuck up in our current state.We did fight Captain Cold right? And won?
>>1557181>You should read Homeless Mutant Quest, highest of highs, and shitpostest of shitposts.I feel proud to have contributed to both the highs and the shitposts.
>>1557156I'm not saying that frustrating things shouldn't happen. In fact, I'm interested to see where the introduction of Cho goes from here. I'm just saying that the disparity between our actions and their consequences is huge right now, and the larger that gap is, the less player agency has a role in the quest. We went from next to zero negative consequences for a major failure in a life-or-death situation in our last fight with a big time villain, to major negative repercussions for doing nothing wrong today. No matter what sort of narrative Slink wanted to introduce, a lesser punishment for fighting in school could have done it just as well without reinforcing the idea that our actions and their consequences don't correlate. We should have wound up in detention with Cho instead, unless all of our guesses were wrong about what this narrative is leading to and he's actually got something that somehow *requires* that we be suspended.
>>1557184Nah. Vibe won that fight. We just provided moral, mental, and physical support.>>1557190I'm sure it was just a phase
>>1557184Arguments aren't bad for a quest it shows anons are invested and leads to important discussions. The qm should know when to put their foot down when required though.
>>1557181Where can I find it?
>>1557164Investigate Anna and Cho, we need evidence on them. Its fucking obvious Anna took the fall when she saw her boy Cho was getting fucked up.
>>1557200>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutantHere you go.
>>1557209This is obviously a false flag to throw us off Anna and Cho's scent.
>>1557164>CI like the mc having flaws to work through
>>1557214What if it's a false false flag? What if it's a regular flag? What if it's half-mast?
>>1557223Then obviously that means that Vic Stone is the Batman.>>1557209Also, by something to bust up, I hope it's a mugger's face.
>>1557167>>1557169>>1557177>>1557181>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up.>B. Wreck your Principal's car like a hoodlum.
>>1557233>B We Hood now
Also we need to hospitalize Cho, once we get back to school its obvious he's gonna want a round two. I'm not saying we should torture the cunt, only that we should snap his legs without turning them into dust. Or does someone suspect our identity and had Cho fight us to confirm our powers? And would Cho "mysteriously" broken legs tip them off?
>>1557233>>B. Wreck your Principal's car like a hoodlum.We haven't learned about the Great Responsibility part of being a hero yet so starting out as a bit of a dickhead gives us room to grow and become a real hero.
>>1557233>>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up.
>>1557233>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up
>>1557233>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up.
>>1557233>>B. Wreck your Principal's car like a hoodlum.I know this is a bad idea and will tip off Amanda Waller and her Cadmus buddies but I'm voting for it anyways.
>>1557242Edgy as fuck
>>1557197Wait really? Oh well then.>>1557198I didn't say it was bad, I was just making sure anons are well enough to keep enough focus for the quest instead of being stuck on one thing.Just wanna help in a way>>1557223It's a two man con>>1557233>B. Wreck your Principal's car like a hoodlum.Take this you bird like negro bitch
>>1557233>>1557246Actually, switch to B. She was mean.
>>1557233>>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up.I get the feeling we will get fucked over if we try B
>>1557239>>1557243>>1557251>>1557253>>1557254>>1557255Yes, do it while on camera where she can throw us IN jail. Brilliant. How about we Murder Cho in front of a crowd for an encore?
>>1557233>A. Break into the city's junk lot and bust shit up.Not touching B with a ten foot pole.
>>1557268>>1557270>>1557271Live with your heart, not your head, anons.
>>1557270>Teenager making bad choices and not thinking things through.Stop the presses this has never happened before.
>>1557273That sort of thinking is why the divorce rate is so high, and we have so many murders. >>1557274>Teenager who's trying to be a hero acts like a total fucking retard>Does something super illegal while he KNOWS there are cameras about.I very much doo not want a Mirror Master repeat.
>>1557270>Implying a shitty camera can catch us on tape>Implying she won't just see the frames of the video switch from a perfectly normal car to a car with a Vector side hole going through the front of the engine through the other side.
>>1557280Yea you are right, the cameras will totally be able to catch something faster than the flash.
>>1557280>That sort of thinking is why the divorce rate is so high, and we have so many murders.>He says while oversimplifying the causes for those things like the intellectualism used to create the modern divorce, or the governmental oversight leading to higher poverty and mental health defunding
>>1557280I don't think smashing up a car with our hyperspeed is going to be as a difficult as fighting mirror master. HOWEVER, the Honda Civic IS a formidable beast.
>>1557299That's actually a good point to bring up.>>1557233What type of car is it?
>>1557310>1 post by this ID>Doesn't even quote the voteThis is either suspicious, or you should lurk more.
>>1557310>>1557316Looks fishy to me too.
>>1557337He linked his post in the second one.
>>1557343Yes but he also didn't bother replying to them either
>>1557343Doesn't make it any less suspicious of samefagging.
This is why you have to have short voting periods Slink people are starting to samefag.
>>1557379Or maybe some people are just finding the quest. It's impossible to tell really, unless you care enough to investigate it fully.
>BUse our powers for evil.
>>1557244>>1557247>>1557248>>1557261>>1557268>>1557271Veering off your track home, you duck into an alley and pace back and forth, thinking on what exactly it is you want to do to let all of this… anger out. You can’t hurt Cho, not only because it’s wrong, but because there’d be consequences you aren’t prepared to deal with. Only men and women in tights and capes ever get away with busting up buildings, and that’s only when fighting crime. You even ponder getting a little revenge on your principal, but decide against it. Too risky. “I can’t just turn everything in my path to junk, but I’m so fucking pissed.. god damnit!” you exclaim, kicking over a trash can in the alley. An alley cat happened to be in that trash can, fishing for… well, fish, most likely. Discarded fish bones, anyway. It snarls, spits and hisses at you, hair on its back standing straight up.You’re angry, aching and all out of fucks to give. You don’t give it the time of day.The cat bounds off, and you’re left alone in the alley. Still, you get an idea. You may not be able to turn a bunch of public property to junk, but if the property is already a technical scrap heap…You pull a ball cap out of your backpack and set it atop your noggin. That energy builds within you, a pressure rising throughout your gut and limbs until you can’t hold it anymore. You let it go with a burst of speed, and start zipping through the city, ducking in and out of alleys and dashing past civilians with one purpose in mind: Sweet, cathartic destruction.When you arrive at one of the Central City Junkyards, specifically the one meant for Brookefield Heights’ discarded vehicles and junk of that nature, you frown at the story-high gates and fencing surrounding the place. You briefly check your surroundings, making sure you aren’t being watched or recorded, then burst through the fence with relative ease. You’re surrounded by mountains of faded colors, chrome and rust, tires piled every which way. It’s quiet save for the sounds of the city, beeping and vehicles rushing by outside the junkyard’s borders. Alright. You’re here. Time to break shit.>A. Just smash it all. Don’t bother building up to anything. Use your powers and go to town.>B. Try and break through thinner stacks of metal first. Try and figure out how your invulnerability works while working off your rage.>C. Don’t use your powers, just grab a rusty slab of metal and start breaking windows.>D. Write-In
>>1557396>B. Try and break through thinner stacks of metal first. Try and figure out how your invulnerability works while working off your rage.
>>1557390You're a lot more trusting than I am.
>>1557379Votes in the first ten minutes are counted. It's in the OP. I got distracted.
>>1557396>>B. Try and break through thinner stacks of metal first. Try and figure out how your invulnerability works while working off your rage.
>>1557396>C. Don’t use your powers, just grab a rusty slab of metal and start breaking windows.This should build up our manly regular person body>>1557406If somebody puts in the effort to samefag a vote on a quest on 4chan, I already won.
>Moralfags once again ruin anons attempts at making a character with room to grow because he might not be a good guy.I shouldn't still be this angry considering how often this happens.>>1557396>D. Write-In>Try and figure out a way to work on being able to turn while in super speed
>>1557430Hey. We're fucking up someone's junkyard business, right now. That's a dick move.
>>1557437Its nowhere near the same thing.
>>1557430Also, your vote is to figure out the one thing that we can not possibly do. That's not a well-made vote. Shame on you.
>>1557430I have been burned one to many times by trying to have an MC be a dick only to have he QM fuck us over that I just avoided now
>>1557456Don't avoid conflict just because you can't handle it.
>>1557451We know we can't do it so it would make sense we should try and figure out if there is a way we could do it.>>1557456Failure builds character and is crucial for an interesting story, besides every human makes mistakes and gives into their emotions.
>>1557460I'm not even talking about that you sanctimonious holier then thou assholeI mean the QM literally fucked over the entire quest and caused its death kind of fucking over
>>1557470>I mean the QM literally fucked over the entire quest and caused its death kind of fucking overI'm enjoying how bitter you are. It's precious.
>>1557477Trick, stop shitposting.
>>1557486Nah. The dude is clearly stupid, drunk. or high. He deserves it.
>>1557495you want to cause issues for the sake of issues yet I'm the high drunk or stupid oneI think you need to go back to school and file a law suite cause they have failed you
>>1557506You're the one taking potshots at the quest while making only semi-cohesive sentences from your claims. If you want to get mad and stupid, go somewhere else.
>>1557520all I said was I have been fucked over by other QM's before and don't want to risk it againbut when ever someone has a different opinion then you have to post saying your way is better because reasons
>>1557537Chill out, dude. If you don't like the quest, you don't have to read it.
>>1557405>>1557413>>1557414>>1557417>>1557423If you’re going to be destructive, you might as well be constructive. Your power, as manageable as it is now, is still mostly a mystery to you. You woke up one day and BAM! You could run at incredible speeds and bust through things like butter. So why is it that you were absolutely fine with breaking through walls and solid objects, and broke so many bones with ease-- but when you hit the museum floor you dug a hole and almost broke every bone in your body?You take a second to come up with a few theories, then test them out one by one, using the junk piles and scrapped automobiles. You find a nice, only mostly broken down Honda Accord, and get to testing your first theory. Maybe your invulnerability is attached to you using your ability over and over in quick succession. Careful to only use your hand as the point of impact, you proceed to speed back and forth, carving slice and slice through steel with ease.When that gets boring, you proceed to go through a couple more theories. Certain materials being the cause, spending not enough time running, spending too much time running, closing your eyes… A a whole slew of theories. An few hours pass, and you’ve reduced a section of the yard to an absolute shitshow of twisted metal and at-a-glance art pieces embedded in the dirty earth, broken glass and bubbling rubber scattered all around. Your sneakers are starting to smoke as well.Eventually you come to the conclusion that you have a sort of… inertia field that activates whenever you use your hyper speed. You simply remain unchanged, while the environment around you has to deal with the speed and power as which you rush forth. The field, if your bloody hand is of any indication, is finite. You were able to bust through fifteen stacked cars, all vertically stacked, but your palm got caught juuuust at the end of the last car. >A.

>>1557554..... You're the one throwing a fit about how this quest is not going your way by antagonizing someone when they give a reasoning for their voting. Not him. Seriously Trick, stop shitposting.>>1557555>D. Head to Franchesca’s place. It might do you some good to spend some time with her, get some input into what happened at school.
>>1557577If you'd like to use your favor on that, yes.
>>1557555>A. Wrap up the wound with a spare shirt from your pack, then practice some more.more practice never hurts
>>1557582What? He said that he's been "burned by too many QMs" to do something, and then I called it a lame excuse in a throw away post. Then he decided to rant about how he thought that slink "literally fucked over the entire quest and caused its death kind of fucking over" And I answered condescendingly, which felt appropriate. Where did you get lost?
>>1557606you didn't read it at all did my god you really are an idiotI never once said Slink killed the quest I said the QM's that have burned me killed their quest
>>1557606Firstly you said his reason didn't count. Secondly he said OTHER QMS literally have killed quests like that, not Slink. A.K.A. Other Qms have burned him with shit like this before repeatedly, so he tries to avoid it. Much like a child avoid putting a penny into the light socket after getting shocked. Well most children, since your brain damage implies you gave it 2-3 more goes after the first time.
>>1557625>the QMMy bad. It was left pretty ambiguously, considering that there's one that runs this quest, too.
>>1557636You need to chill out, too. I just misread an ambiguous post, and things spiraled. When he explained it, I understood his meaning. Calmer heads prevail, because when people got pissed and self-righteous they didn't explain their meaning.
>>1557564>>1557577>>1557582Figuring you’re done enough training for the day, you kneel down to dig into your backpack and produce an old spare shirt you carry around just in case. You wrap it around your hand, then zip the pack closed and sling it over your shoulder. Now that you think about it, School should be out. That means students will be out doing whatever it is teenagers who aren’t Super Heroes, or falsely accused delinquents for that matter, do. For some reason, your mind immediately jumps to Franchesca. Sure, why not?You duck through the hole you made in the junkyard fence, then take a quick lookaround to make sure nobody’s watching. All clear. You activate your hyperspeed, and dash through the city at skidding right angles, eventually arriving in a lovely little neighborhood that you know Franchesca happens to live in. Smoke still trailing off your heels, you casually walk in someone’s neatly mowed lawn to cool them off, then stroll towards the cheery goth’s home.You skip the steps leading up to the porch, and rap a trio of knocks on the front door. When nobody answers, you try ringing the bell, which earns you a muffled ‘Coming!’ from inside. You adjust the cap on your head, shifting in place. The door opens, and you’re greeted with bright smile. Franchesca’s wearing black jeans and a black tank top, but pretty much nothing else of note. Her hair’s all done up in a messy bun. Her smile falters a bit when she sees you, and without another word she waves you in. You’re confused, but decide to roll with it and head inside. “So, suspended, huh? Thought that was gonna happen next week. I always get this stuff mixed up. Should start writing the fortunes down,” she mumbles, before padding over on bare feet into her kitchen. The Entire. House. Is black and white. We’re talking grayscale wooden furniture, to black couches, to a white shag carpet-- in fact you’re the only thing with color in the room. Franchesca’s parents must be artsy.When she comes back into the living room, Franchesca is carrying a glass of water, and a glass of juice for you. You take the juice gratefully and sip it. “You saw me getting suspended in a vision?” you ask casually, figuring she’d open with something like that. Then it hits you.She said she had to have someone ask her to read a fortune if she wanted to look into the future, right? That means someone…Asked about you.>End Session

Welp. Done for now. Getting a little tired. I'll answer any questions.I kind of already have an idea of the feedback.Updates can be found here: https://twitter.com/PapaSlink
>>1557724I bet it was a friend when we were in our mini-coma.>>1557745Thanks for the session.
>>1557745thanks for running slink, it was fun and it definitely got people discussing.
>>1557745Thanks for running!Sorry that two of your players are shit.
>>1557724id like that I went from wary about this chick to out right dislike
>>1557771an* not id damn you auto correct
>>1557752>>1557754>>1557767Yeah sure no problem.
>>1557486That wasn't/isn't me you idiot.
>>1557582>Seriously Trick, stop shitposting.I mean this is just a coincidence, but why the fuck did you think I was reading this quest?
>>1558043>but why the fuck did you think I was reading this quest?Maybe it was the fact that you had your trip on the other day. Just saying.
>>1558052I've yet to post in this quest until this very moment.
>>1558056Either you're lying, someone is pretending to be you, or I just looked in the wrong tab and saw you. All three are possible, and I will admit no fault if it was the latter.
>>1557205Damn so Crusty just straight up disappeared huh?That sucks now I'm not sure If i want to read the rest or not I hate getting into a story that will never be finished.How often does this happen with quests that the QM just stops? Because I've only been here for a couple of months. If this is a reoccurring thing here I don't know if i'm going to stick around.
>>1558855Nothing golden lasts forever. Things happen, people change, ideas lose their glimmer. Some QMs end it peacefully with a last session. Some quests end with a bad end and others are abandoned. The point isn't to keep the quest going indefinitely, but rather to have a good time while it runs. If you're lucky the QM will return or they'll run another quest and you can have fun all over again.
>>1558855He has problems with his ass. Seriously. And then the /qst/ shift killed his mojo. It's unfortunate but hey, it was a good run while it lasted. Should still give it a chance.
>>1558855It seemed he had surgery and stopped after that like >>1559151 said. still though it was really well written and overall a really enjoyable quest, I would definitely recommend reading it even if it'll never really have an ending. And to be honest, quest end a lot more often then I like to admit, usually most do to be honest. Still, even if they don't always get an ending you almost always enjoy the ride. Did homeless mutant quest not ending suck, big time I felt like shit for a week after finishing it because of how much we wouldn't get to see, but I'm still happy I read it because it was a legitimately great quest and I enjoyed everything about it. Just got to take with the good with the bad I guess, but for any potential QM's out there if you ever start a quest that you're into anymore, just at least spend a thread to wrap it up nicely, it's all anyone asks for really. Quests left to die are just really sad.
>>1559151Lower intestinal problems due to an auto-immune disease of some sort.
>>1558855he also never said goodbye or explained why he was dropping his quest.Combined with this >>1560216Means there is a chance Crusty might have actually DIED.And if he didn't explain this hobby to any of his close relatives or friends then we will have no way of ever knowing what really happened to him.
Live in 30. For those early, question: How would you feel about me implementing a minor perk system? Nothing too intrusive, just something to give y'all an idea of how Rick is progressing.
>>1566506Sounds fine to me. Its a good way to gauge progress.
>>1566506I'd like it quite a bit.Plus it'd give us a sort of catalogue as to what he can do.
>>1566506Will we get a perk for when we styled on Lobo?
Franchesca gestures for you to sit, and after a moment’s hesitation you nod and fall onto a plush black cushion at the end of the couch. Your host sits about an arm’s length from you, legs curled up under her, facing you. She looks exceedingly comfy, limbs tucked close and snuggled up into the couch, a stark contrast to the shifting, unsure state you’re in. You try not to jump to any conclusions, but after the cheery goth’s comment about seeing your suspension in a vision, you can’t help but connect the dots. Someone must have asked about you-- paid this girl a sizable amount of money to get a fortune at least tangentially related to you. “Earth to Rick…” Franchesca mumbles, snapping you out of your theory crafting. She watches you curiously with big, scrutinous eyes over her glass, which she tips to take a sip of water from. “I was thinking about something,” you respond lamely, excusing yourself with a half-truth. “Oh yeah? What about?” she chirps questioningly, canting her head and causing the messy bun atop her head to bob a bit. “Why don’t you read my mind and find out?” you answer, a cheeky grin spreading across your face. “Ha ha. I’m not that kind of psychic,” she says predictably, rolling her eyes. Then, a little less predictably, Fran’s expression darkens when she suddenly switches subjects. “That kid got what was coming to him.”“Huh?” You’re not sure what she’s referring to.“Cho. The psycho you beat up,” she clarifies, “He’s lucky I don’t show up at school that early. Would’ve hecked him up real bad while you distracted him.” She punctuates the imaginary scenario with a feeble punch. You stifle a chuckle at the noodle-armed girl.“Oh yeah, that would’ve been terrible for him. At least he stood a chance one on one,” you play along.Franchesca grins, her dimples making themselves known again. She starts playing with her glass, tipping it back and forth to the point of the water within coming dangerously close to pouring out and onto the nice couch. You frown at that, but figure it’s just a nervous fidget. “So… why’d you decide to show up on my doorstep? Surprise visits aren’t something I’m against, don’t get me wrong,” she says through a giggle, “It’s just I’m getting the feeling you want to cash in that favor of yours.”>A. You wanted to talk to her. What, can’t a guy just hang out without some ulterior motive?>B. Cash in the favor. You need some information. She’s psychic.>C. Cash in the favor. Things have been hectic, why not ask her out to eat? You’ve been meaning to go to that diner. >D. Get right down to it. Who asked her to look into your future?>E. Write-In
>>1566569Nah. If you end up beating a bunch of people above your paygrade, that might result in one though.
>>1566617>D. Get right down to it. Who asked her to look into your future?
>>1566617>>D. Get right down to it. Who asked her to look into your future?Well originally I just came here to talk and hang out but who's asking about my future?
>D. Get right down to it. Who asked her to look into your future?
>>1566633>>1566636>>1566665Rather than ease into things, you decide being direct is probably the best course of action. Either Franchesca slipped with mentioning her looking into your future, or she regards it as no big deal. Both possibilities warrant further investigation, as far as you’re concerned.“Well, I originally showed up to talk and hang out. Figured you heard about what happened in the schoolyard, and would have been interested in hearing how everything went down. Apparently, though, you already know a lot about this.”Either Franchesca isn’t put off by the implication, or is very good at hiding it. She just kind of scoots a little closer as you speak, more curious than anything.“Want to tell me who paid you to look into my future?” you ask, finally getting to the point.You start to think she turned off or something by the time she answers, taking a full minute to simply sit there and think of what to say. “I can’t… just tell you. I’m not sure if that’s wise. Like, I’ll tell you that someone definitely paid me to look into you, sure,” she admits, nodding quickly.“--But I’m not going to just let the cat out of the bag. Clients expect a certain confidentiality when using my service,” she finishes, taking another sip from her glass.“Confidentiality? If it’s so secret, why did you drag me along on one of your fortune telling expeditions? Why do I know about that kid who paid you to see if his parents were getting back together?” you ask, clutching your glass of juice a bit tighter. “You know as well as I do that the second one couldn’t be helped. That girl who was yelling at me about it spilt the beans. And that first one? You came along as security, remember? It’s not like I was going to tell you to wait outside. He seemed fine with you being there anyway,” Franchesca reasons, eyebrows knitted together.Well, she isn’t wrong.>A. Persist. Don’t just let this sit.>B. Cash in that favor. She owes you one, and you really, really need to know who was looking into you.>C. Relent, but let her know this isn’t cool.>D. Write-In
>>1566720>>B. Cash in that favor. She owes you one, and you really, really need to know who was looking into you.
>B. Cash in that favor. She owes you one, and you really, really need to know who was looking into you.I wanna know.
>>1566720>B. Cash in that favor. She owes you one, and you really, really need to know who was looking into you.
>>1566720>B>D Also tell me what you saw.
>>1566723>>1566728>>1566753>>1566819“Franchesca, you owe me one,” you remind the girl. If she isn’t going to just let you know, then there has to be something to this. You figure spending that favor on this is worth it.Your host turns and presses her back against the couch, pulling her knees to her chest. She wiggles her toes, eyes downcast to watch her feet in silence. Her expression is neutral, but having seen the girl all smiles so often, it feels much more negative than that. Still, you can’t relent just because she’s being moody. This is important. Who knows what else she told that person about you? Do they know you’re a hero? Did Franchesca see you in costume in one of her visions? Would she even tell you if she did? Questions upon questions well up and swim around your head, but you push them aside and focus.“Look, either you’re a woman of your word or not. I’m sorry if this is a breach of whatever ethics you hold yourself to, but I have to know who asked about me. Who would spend that much money just to get some info on me? And what did you see?” you ask, watching her expression for anything revealing. Her pale shoulders finally slump in defeat, and Franchesca looks across you with her half-lidded, dark eyes. “Fine.”“Just so you know, I tried to get them to change up their question to something a little more specific. They wouldn’t have it, and insisted on being extremely broad with their questioning. I don’t like looking into people without permission, but it’s not something I’m morally against. It’s like… these things haven’t happened yet, so I’m not invading your privacy if you haven’t even tried to keep it private yet, right?” That is the most ass-backwards reasoning you’ve heard in years, and you let Franchesca in on that.“Ugh, I’m sorry. Really, I haven’t had time to think about this. I’ve only ever looked into other people as a service a few times, so I didn’t think it through too hard. This one girl asked me to see if she ended up with this guy…” she starts saying, but you pat her on the shoulder and tell her you’d like her to get back on track. She nods and does so.“They asked to know your future. Simple as that. I looked and… saw some things. You getting suspended, eating breakfast, doing push-ups…” she trails off, and absently bites a nail. Knowing Franchesca has seen a bunch of shit you’ve done, or are going to do makes you incredibly uncomfortable. You hope she isn’t leaving anything out and that’s the extent of what she’s seen.>Continued
>>1566831Franchesca clears her throat and continues, “Right, um, I also saw you with a helmet? It looked cool, I guess, but that was pretty much it. My power works a lot better when I have a specific goal in mind, rather than broad questions. They didn’t ask any more, paid me, and that was that,” the goth finishes, hugging her legs a little closer, awkwardly clutching her glass at the same time.“Thanks, but I still want to know who was asking, and how long ago it was,” you say, urging her to continue.“A few days ago. Just after that failed heist at the museum that was all over the news?” You nod, confirming you know about it. Hell, how could you not? “That girl in homeroom, the blonde one everybody talks about but nobody talks to? The smart one, Anna. It was her.”The girl Cho knocked out. You’re not sure how to feel about this.>A. Persist, ask for any other details Franchesca might have left out.>B. That’s enough. Thank her and get back to being social, though you get the feeling Franchesca is about done with hanging out today.>C. Write-In
>B. That’s enough. Thank her and get back to being social, though you get the feeling Franchesca is about done with hanging out today.She totally knows we are a cape.
>>1566835>B But make sure to say "that is all you saw?" just probing a little bit to see if she knows
>>1566835>B. That’s enough. Thank her and get back to being social, though you get the feeling Franchesca is about done with hanging out today.
Well she is definitely psychic Franchesca nonbelievers BTFO
>>1566835So as soon as we are spotted in our outfit by news or maybe even her if we are fighting some villain she is going to know even if she didn't see us doing our hero thing what are we going to do anons? It might be better to straight tell her now then for her to figure it out when we aren't around.
>>1566840>>1566845>>1566855“Thank you, Fran. Appreciate it,” you say, sighing shortly after and loosening the grip on your glass that you hadn’t realized was quite so tight. You toss back the juice like a shot, much to your host’s bewilderment. Still, she cracks a smile and is back to her cheery self in a few seconds flat. You realize this means Franchesca is actually psychic. How else would she have known about the helmet?“Nobody but my dad calls me that,” Franchesca lets you know, elbowing you out of your haze. What? Oh, right, Fran. It just made sense, and you tell her as much.“Mm. Welp, thanks for coming to hang out and interrogating me, but I think I’m gonna get ready and hang out with a couple friends. You can show yourself out, unless you want to come and have to deal with four or so teenage girls being excessively annoying!” Something tells you that invitation wasn’t serious, even if you were up for that. You shake your head, “I’m good, thanks. Hey, just making sure-- Did you leave anything out? Was that all you saw?” You ask, putting your empty glass on the coffee table and rising from the couch.Franchesca rises after you, and you notice her get a little red in the face. “Nope, that’s definitely all I saw.” And with that she’s padding away. You don’t believe her.“Are you SURE!?” you call after he as she disappears up a flight of steps.After a few moments of silence, you start towards the door, only to hear the girl call from atop the steps, “All I’m going to say is you should clear your search history!”Your eyes go wide, and your face gets hot. Without another word you exit Franchesca’s home, right out into a cool autumn day. There’s still some daylight left to burn.>A. Call Cisco. It’s time you have that talk with him about information gathering. You should probably get started on that if you’re going to figure out what’s going on with the crime spike.>B. Call the Costume Woman, Sera. You have to fix your helmet. You might even be able to give that watch back.>C. Just go home. >D. Write-In
>>1566913I'm fine with her knowing we are a hero. She probably already does. I think it's kinda weird bringing it up randomly though. Let's meet up with Cisco and add him to our team, then consider if we want Francesca to know.
>A. Call Cisco. It’s time you have that talk with him about information gathering. You should probably get started on that if you’re going to figure out what’s going on with the crime spike.First Cisco then lady.
>>1566929>B. Call the Costume Woman, Sera. You have to fix your helmet. You might even be able to give that watch back.
>>1566947I think we should put off giving the watch back and ask the flash about it next time we meet up.
>>1566954I just want the helmet fixed.
We're dead, jim. Continuing anyway but gonna go a little slower.
>>1566958Then just specify to leave the watch >>1566975Don't feel to bad E3 usually drains every board they are all over on /v/ now
>>1566999Ok do whatever you want I don't care I don't think it is a good idea but whatever.>>1566975>>1567001I'm guessing we are deadlocked now then
>>1567014You are, but it doesn't matter. Gonna postpone running until things are a little more normalized. I'd rather decisions get made by the entirety of the player base rather than one or two peeps. not that my player base isn't 5 or so people at its max
>>1567030I mean we have 4 people who voted now and there were others voting earlier sometimes you just gotta go with a few people but if you really want to stop I won't complain
>>1567030I second >>1567045
>>1567045We're done for now. I am going to post that perk system though, probably in the form of a link to a pastebin.
>>1567054Sorry I was late, first day of summer courses, plus I thought the session was going to start later than this. I do think the perk system is a good idea though.
>>1567030Sorry dude. Had to head to my recruiting station for a DEP meeting.
>>1567054I always get thrown off by the 9 pm in your tweets, even though we're clearly in different time zones. Is the session completely done for the day?
>>1567060No need to apologize. It's fi->>1567087S-stop. I wasn't feeling it anyway.>>1567103I use UTC because apparently it's the easiest for everyone to convert to. It's like 5pm EST. And yeah we're done. Not in the mood anymore.
>>1567134>I use UTC because apparently it's the easiest for everyone to convert toAh ok, I'll make sure to remember that in the future, thanks
https://pastebin.com/0HNxA6hDAaaaand we've got mechanics, as well as a character sheet with a few starting perks.

>>1567875fuck it slink, you win
Is quest dead?
NOT ON MY WATCH NIGGA >A. Call Cisco. It’s time you have that talk with him about information gathering. You should probably get started on that if you’re going to figure out what’s going on with the crime spike.
>>1573198Don't think so. Slink just hasn't announced when the next session is. It'll be fine. probably
>>1573198Most quests die. Now would be the time.
I don't think it's dead, slink's probably just taking a few days.
>>1573800How about we deny your wishes again.
Running tomorrow, probably. Also probably going to start a new thread for it. Depends on whether or not I run out of happy juice.Tweets are official confirmation
>>1574291Get an anouncement discord. Way better than twitter.
>>1574343discord is for fegs mmkay?
>>1574412meh, discord is more convenient honestly. >>1574291I knew you weren't papa, which is great because this is one of the best quests on this board right now.
>>1574291You should start a new thread and archive this one mang, it's on Page 7.
