He’s badly injured though. You'll need Doc at the evac point to patch him up.Understood, we’ll meet yo- th-re.
aw hell yes

Oh man, it's happening.
>>2270406I'm so hype right now
To be honest i have NO clue what's going on.
>>2270412None of us do, all we know is that the power went out while we were in our office and shit started going down.I think we're about to be having another one of our flashbacks?
Listen to me-caref-lly Mark. The pl-n f---ed, I ne-d you t- reach the m--n ch---er. Once t-er-, se----ark? M---!
Th- f-ol stor-ed in with a pistol, we had no time to ID him--It doesn’t matter. Doc, can you make the injection? I want to talk to him, alone.He might not make it.
>>2270442The production values in this quest are overblown and I fucking LOVE IT
I wonder if this is a flash back or a result of the commander getting fucked up in the last thread because of that 1
...Are you awake? Finally! Everyone was so worried about you. I swear sometimes I wonder if you're doing this on purpose.I- huh... I'm glad you're alright.>Write-in
>>2270491>what the hell happened?
>>2270495I'll second this.
>>2270491>If previous luck and experience is anything to go by there should be an angel attacking right now, right?
>>2270491>ALSO WHERE IS RIOTSHIELD-CHAN
>>2270506This is the most important question.
>>2270491>where are my kids?
>>2270491>Where's the kids and what happened?HAHA TIME FOR SUFFERING
>>2270502Thankfully, there hasn't been an angel sighting since you went out. And even if there was... Well, you know- It's not like I could do much. And neither could you! The chief Medical Officer wants to keep you here in the medical ward for a week or two.>>2270506>>2270509The riot shield? I guess it's still at home. We'll know once Section-2 finishes their search or whatever they're doing. No one's allowed there. I couldn't even go back to take some clothes.>>2270513Your kids? What are you talking about?>>2270495You know how it is, Section-2 and the higher ups never let us pilots know what's actually going on. Carl told me he heard there was a firefight or something. You were there, right? Do you remember anything?
>>2270596Not really, no.And since I’ve been out? How long have I been out?
>>2270596>I'm just glad that you are ok, and everything seems to be in one piece. Now let's go get our bearings, my memory seems to be a bit fuzzy.
>>2270596>I remember some bad guys dressed up as our guys
>>2270596That's a relief, is Sophie okay?
>>2270596Sit rep now!
>>2270600About three weeks? The doctor said it must've been a... shock coma or something. I can't quite remember.>>2270612No no no, you stay put. The CMO was clear on that.>>2270618R-really? What did they do?>>2270622Huh? She's okay? I didn't know you cared about Sophie. She's really not the kind of person you usually hand around with. She laughs nervously>>2270637Well, I guess you better hear it from me first. Section-2 have this way of making everything sound cold and uncaring...Alright, here it goes...
...The Major has gone missing.Nobody knows where he is, I've asked everyone but got no answer. Rachel doesn't know either. I even went to the creepy Head of the Science Division, but he told me this wasn't any of my concern.I've been living with Claire for the past few weeks. She's been kind, but this whole thing feel really wrong. They obviously want to keep us in the dark.Look, Marie... I know we've been really crappy toward each other, but I'm scared. ...I think we need each other right now.
>>2270797Yes, Marie I am Marie.Fondle our boobs
>>2270797Oh no. Oh no you didn't. YOU DIDN'T.
>>2270797Upon reflection, I'd like to request that we flip the fuck out now please.
>>2270797>Try not to touch yourself>Touch yourself>Cry
>>2270685>Voil de nuitI'm really not liking the relevant theme there.
>>2270836We're not Shinji Ikari, silly.
>>2270868but it wouldn't be the End without it :^)
>>2270868You are gonna miss out on being the FIRST PERSON EVER to experience both genders in truth?FOOL.
>>2270868We're a middle-aged schizophrenic man in the body of a teenage girl. At this point that could be an improvement
>>2270871>>2270875You dumbasses, now is not the time. Don't you get it? If "We" are missing, and we're inhabiting Marie's body....Then where's Marie?
>>2270386>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Nerv%20HQOh good, it's not just me, there have been months since the last thread.
>>2270907Now very well could be the only time.A quick honk never hurt anyone.
>>2270895Aw shit!We're under the age drinking limit!
>>2270916Look, we need to find our body and get back into it pronto, or at least find Marie and make sure she's safe.
>>2270797Does this mean Eileen masturbated over our unconscious body?
>>2270937She's so fucked up.
this is still running? fuck yeah!Gotta catch up.Anyone remember which thread that really shy burned pilot died and made everything sad?
>>2270942He deserved it. Oh, that's not an Eva meme, my bad. But my point stands.
...You must be mad at me. For everything I said about you. I- I didn't mean any of it! I know I've been an awful person, Marie... But, I fear we need every friend we can get now that the Major is gone.Can we put all of this behind us? Can you forgive me?
>>2270966See this is a sticky situation.Should we try to roleplay as Marie until we know what's going on, or blow our load and try to explain what's going on?I'm leaning toward the first option to be honest.Soooooooooo>"Yeah, sure I understand. I don't think I can forgive you, but this is a step in the right direction."
>>2270966We're not Marie.Quick, what's something we would know that Marie wouldn't? We need to confirm our identity.
>>2270980It's probably best if we pretend to be Marie. >>2270966>Can we put all of this behind us? Can you forgive me?I don't know, putting this behind us is really dependent on both of us...
>>2270966Pull her into a hug. No words.We technically dont confirm or deny anything.
>>2270966Nnng, yes and headpat!
Why won't you say anything? Am I this ba... What are you doing?Ugh! Why can't you be serious for once! I can't believe you! She stands up, furious. I knew I shouldn't have bothered!You know what? I don't need you! You can rot in here for all I care!She darts off the room and slams the door on her way out.
>>2270978>>2270982C'mon guys, if there's anyone we can trust with this situation, it's her.>>2270991GOD DAMMITThat's it, we're busting out of the hospital.
>>2270991GOD DAMN ITthis is just what i asked for and now i can cry
>>2270991RUN AFTER HEEEER
>>2270991This is so confusing>Am I the Major inside Marie?
>>2270998How do we know Marie isn't still in here?
>>2270991Wait...hold on can we even talk?Maybe we only command her actions.QUICK GET UP AND GRAB HER!
>>2271003that's what i was thinking, there's no way to assume we aren't just Marie
>>2271004Oh fuck, are we mute!?
>>2271004>>2271009Nononono nevermindWe spoke earlier. This was all just for comedic effect.
>>2271013Wait, we did? When?
>>2270991QUICK WE NEED ALLIES RUN AFTER HER.Then we pretend to be Marie for at least a little while.
>>2271008>>2271004We can try to say something she doesn't know?Like "Oh yeah, I definitely met with Ophelia after investigating on Philip and she was lobotomized by the new Science Head, what a fucker".
I assumed we're just doing a protagonist switch, not "Omg the Major is inside Marie's body!"
>>2271025But aren't we the major? I thought we were voices in his head.
>>2271037Why would the voices be in Marie's head instead?
I wonder what the now voice free Major is up to?Probably getting drunk.
>>2270997>>2271004>>2271019After a bit of running, you manage to catch her.Oh- what do you want now? I already said I didn't need you! Why would I need your help anyway. You're fake, a copy!That's all you are!>Write-in
>>2271068You're right, I am a fake. But I need your help.
What color underwear are you wearing?
>>2271068>>2271075do not do this
Alright, folks we need an event in which only the major and eileen were at together. Anyone got any ideas.
>>2271068>i may be a fake but the Major still cared for us both like we were his kids
>>2271068I'm sorry for earlier, something weird is happening. I think I contracted the Majors head voices
Aight, I'm going to bed. Thank you for playing! Vote for what you'll say next, I'll pick this up tomorrow.Did you rike it? I've been planning this for a while now.
>>2271098i honestly thought you died
>>2271098Looking forward to future suffering!
>>2271098i've missed this so much ceg
>>2271098Better not bail on us again. You bastard.Thank you for running, and hopefully this turns out somewhat happy...
>>2271098Yes cegremo I rike arot
>>2271098Very nice Ceg. Looking forward to the continuation.
>>2271102I wish>>2271108That's what we're all here for, right?>>2271109Me too, really.>>2271113>Better not bail on us again. You bastard.I'll try my best! We're close to the end anyway.>hopefully this turns out somewhat happy...We're on the Extra Bad End path.>>2271115>>2271124I'm glad you guys liked it!
>>2271098indrasding it was>Vote for what you'll say next"Ok, this may sound strange at first but bear with me... I'm the Major"
>>2271138First pic gave me SCP vibe
>>2271138>extra bad endceg pls
https://pastebin.com/RsZLWiRX>Has mysterious headaches at the same time Major doesWas it foreshadowing?
>>2271163Could be. Unless Marie is the Rei? I honestly can't remember.>>2271138Thanks for running.
>>2271138I want a re-do for the extra harem end.But really, I feel like there never was any time to figure out any of the conspiracies.
We never got to go on that camp trip with the pilots.
>>2271139"And thinking about it, it's not even strange! Look at us! We were one person until a few month ago!"
>>2270386AW YISS>>2270990You fucking faggot.>>2271075>>2271068Do NOT do this>>2271138I hope its the Extra Bad End for the Angels...
>>2271068Katie, listen carefully.During the fight with the 9th Angel, after Marie hit you in the eye, you complained to Florence and the Major, then asked Florence whose side she was on. Then you sobbed in the Major's embrace and told him you were being awful and entitled. Do you remember?I know this because I am not Marie, I am the Major.I have no explanation for this, but that's how it is.
>>2271068>>2271094I'm sorry about earlier, I was feeling a bit... disoriented. You know how it was kind of an open secret that the Major was all schizo and had voices in his head? Well I seem to be experiencing that now. Half of them insist on doing the dumbest shit, but I think others are trying to tell me something important.
>>2271188NBS 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance
Maybe it's just me but I think Ceg'd run a fantastic MGS quest.
>>2271138I kind of feel like going to a body swap/POV switch after a lengthy hiatus isn't really the best move if you want the players to take things seriously.
>>2273086That's a pretty good thought. I'd play it.
>>2273086>>2289278>Otacon simulator questI'd play it.
>>2273086>>2289278>>2289301Don't tempt me, I have enough trouble running two quest right now.Plus, I already have the base for a MGS skirmish I worked on a while back. It's kinda weird, though. Since I wanted a skirmish with a huge map, movement/range is somewhat abstracted. Players would have their operator card with custom portrait and all. The idea is to have crazy customization options (think innawood). Mechanically you'd have three stances with different bonuses to accuracy/detection/speed. There would also be a Mother Base side, where you'd invest funds into weapon/item/vehicle development (think Valkyria Chronicles).But that would be after EoNBS, Bastard's Boars, CKII civ, altWWII pilot quest, Homeward reboot, Skirmish about spaceship fleets, Weird Desert of Kharak/TTGL quest.
>>2271072>>2271085I know the Major cared about us, he was the closest thing to a family we ever had. ...But now he's gone, Marie. Don't you get it? We're alone, again. And I can't trust you until you stop acting like this. Ever since you started hanging out with Carl and that girl from school you've been impossible to live with. >>2271094>>2271139>>2271395>>2271920I- ...what? See!? This is what I'm talking about! I feel like I'm talking to a wall, nothing gets through!>>2271746Her expression goes from furious to confused.H-how do you know-- Did the Major told you about this?! He has to, there's no way- This is, this-You notice her breathing getting more shallow and quick.
>>2290324Oh boyo you guys did it.
>>2290324I just told you I'm the Major. In Marie's body, for some reason.Think about it, did Marie ever headpat you? Sorry for that, by the way.
>>2290324Last thing I remember was a power-cut. There was some gunshot and I was badly injured.I was actually talking with Marie a few minutes before it happened. Do you know anything about that?
>>2290445I know nothing beside what Carl told me. The whole city was on lockdown for a week, we weren't even allowed to go outside our room. I remember hearing about Sophie being hurt during the firefight. And the guy from First Response too, Frank I think?And since then there's always those Section-2 guys following us wherever we go. It's seriously creepy.>>2290350I- I don't understand! If you're the Major, where is Marie? Where is your... body? Or are you only v-voices? This makes no sense! I want to speak to the real Marie! Let her talk!You hear calm footsteps behind you, a woman starts talking.There you are, 4th Child. You know you can't just run anywhere you want anymore... Oh, and what is this? Since when are you awake.
I wasn't informed of this. You're tougher than you look, I'm surprised to see you recovered so soon. I guess Dr. Hughes will be happy to resume your synchronization training.You have to go back to your room immediately. I'll inform Section-2 that you're conscious, they'll assign someone directly to your room so that you can't take unannounced walks.
>>2290517I don't know, none of this make sense to me either.>you hear calm footsteps behind you, a woman starts talking.Tell Rachel to visit me.>Oh, and what is this? Since when are you awake.Ah .. ah! I was a bit disoriented and Eileen was walking me back to my room. No need to worry ahah.We need to escape and manage to find someone who know what's up. Maybe talk to Sophie or Frank to sort things out about our body
>>2290517I don't know where my body is, and what happened to Marie. Maybe she's in my body right now?Sophie might know what happened if she was there. We need to see her.>>2290536W..what's happening? What's going on? Why can't I leave my room? I just woke up and nothing is right and nobody tells me anything!What is this heresy. Since when did Claire become so sexy.
>>2290543Good girl.>>2290561You'll get briefed eventually, if the Commander think it's necessary. And you should have a handler soon enough to replace the Head of Tactical Operations we've lost.In the meantime just stay put in your room and follow orders when they'll come. I'm sure it won't be too long before they put you back into an Entry Plug.[Eileen]I-I'll try to speak Rachel. [Claire]The CAG? She is a busy woman. I wouldn't expect her to have the time to visit sick girls.Anyway, I'll escort you back to your room. Come with me. She takes you and Eileen by the arm.
>>2290842Claire has become a dog of The Man. I'm sad.
>>2290871Pretty sure Claire was always a dog of the man, we just counted as part of "the man". Until now.
>>2290842Would it be possible to have the Majors Riot Shield sent to me?
Oh shit, this is still going on?Anon who wrote the pastebin in the OP here. Looks like I've got some catching up to do.
>>2290842L... Lost? What happened to him?To Eileen, whispering:Tell her that I still owe her for the usb key in the bar... And the nice view. Should be enough to convinve her. Maybe just tell her it's the major sending you and that he'll be waiting for her in my room.
>>2290842I could handle tactical operations.
glad to see that this quest is back. I hope we can inhabit are old body again.
>>2292597Screw our old body, we need to find out where Marie is.
>>2290842Use our major-fu to break her grip.
>>2292893Do we even have that? We're in a small child body.
>>2292905Surprise + pilot might not be well trained to CQB
>>2292958Can you not see the eyepatch man!? We'd be going up against a big-boss level badass for sure!
>>2292965That mean she can't see the perspective. We just have to walk back and she will punch the air until she die from exhaustion or we subdue her.
>>2292996I'm sure she's learned to adapt to the loss of perspective given that she's the captain of our bomber squadron.
Some anon on /tg/ told me NERV Bridge Quest yet lived. I haven't checked in since, uh, 2016? Before fucking /qst/ split off and when Cegremo went on hiatus. Is this thread all I've missed?God, I've missed this. I wish you bastards could see my smile right now.
>>2294642>since 2016Nah. There's more. Check Archives.
>>2294648Thank. Looks like I'm all caught up if this is it. >>2271138God, it is *good* to have you back Cegremo, you mad bastard.>>2292461This guy's got a good idea. Little things like this that *only* Major should know, delivered to trustworthy people, can get them on our side.>>2292893>>2292958You and you, don't be retarded. We're in the body of a small child and subject to the whims of the hivemind and the RNG. Even if we toss CBG in the dumpster where she belongs, what then? She's just going to call security on our ass. We're a small, sickly child, what are we gonna do? Drive away? To where?Let's all go along with this for now, pretend to be Marie to as many people as possible. We can trust Eileen, she's our other half. In fact, we should pitch that idea to her; we're not clones or twins, we're the other half.. We can probably trust CAG, she was in the Major's secret spy shit. That's about it. The less people know we're Major Are we even? in someone else's meatpuppet, the better. If the wrong people find out, best case scenario they commit us to the insane asylum (more than NERV already is), worst case Section 2 gets ahold of us and starts vivisecting us or something. For now let's play the dumb little goy, see what happens, and see if we get an opening to Get Shit Done.We're, what, fourth child? That means they're going to put us in an entry plug sooner or later. Man, that is gonna *suck* but we don't really have a way around it, not without causing a *lot* of fuckery. Maybe !!fun!! will happen when we get in, I mean LCL and AT Fields sound like the kind of fuckery that might result in...whatever made us switch PCs.What is our short-term and long-term objective? Find the 'real' Major? Find what happened to the 'real' Marie?
>>2294659>implying we're not thirty minutes away from vivisection right fucking now>implying we'll even be able to pilot an EVAHow valuable do we think pilots are right now, anyway? Feels like end game to me.
>>2294669>How valuable do we think pilots are right now, anyway?Someone's gotta get in the robot in order to make the fun start. Maybe we'll get front row seats.>Feels like end game to me.You feel it too, huh? It's the endgame, and we just went from 'player' to 'pawn'. That's double-plus ungood. Now, now I fear we're just along for the ride. Oh god, we're going to get front row seats. Oh no.
>>2294672That's just it, going along with CBG is accepting our status as pawns. We need a way out of this hospital and a way to start kicking the hornet's nest right the fuck now, if we want any hope of regaining control.If we can't judo chop this bitch, do we remember where she keeps her sidearm? We could even play it off as some psychotic episode, take Karie hostage and make some demands. Although that relies on the idea that at least two pilots are still worth keeping around.
>>2294679>going along with CBG is accepting our status as pawns. We need a way out of this hospital and a way to start kicking the hornet's nest right the fuck now, if we want any hope of regaining control.I agree; we can't surrender to the status quo and just let the fun happen. This is a setback, not a game over. Not yet, at least.That said, if we chimpout right now shit is going to go very wrong very fast. At the very least we don't have an objective or an exit plan. This isn't the sort of quest where "punch shit, rant angry/crazy, hope for the best" will end well. Come to think of it this isn't the sort of quest where anything will end well but hey.I say give it another session or two, see what happens. Right now we just woke up from a coma, we don't know jack shit. We need a plan, and in order to have a plan we need information. Plus, in order to function we need to not be arrested, and chimping out is a good way to get arrested or at the very least confined to our hospital bed under armed guard. They won't let us do jack shit if they think we're crazy and/or violent. So that means we need the CMO to release us from the hospital, legitly, so we get our freedom back and we can start gathering information and making moves.>Although that relies on the idea that at least two pilots are still worth keeping around.If it's Third Impact they probably only need one EVA; that would mean everyone else, probably us included, is expendable. Let's not give them any excuses to detain (or shoot) us prematurely. We can't afford to tip our hand.
>>2294659I get the feeling that finding the Marie and finding our old body may be very much connected.
>>2294695Two possible objectives we could go for, based on our illegal OOC knowledge. We could try to make it to a "Main Chamber", probably Ophelia's. I think we got an ID card that might get us there, which is hopefully back at our flat. Probably better to pull a stealthy escape if that's our aim, though. Alternatively, we go after the commander, since he's probably with the Major's body. That's difficult, because I doubt any hostage will convince him to come out, but if we can find the MSci, maybe we can torture it out of him. Him and Commander seem like they're working hand in glove at the moment.
>>2294803Probably. Unless Marie is still in here. Unless we actually are Marie now and Major is dead or something.>>2294944Yeah, HSCI and Commander are going to be neck deep in whatever's going on. Only concern is they might not be the ones in charge; SEELE etc. in the main series. If we just take out their man on the spot they might be able to assume direct control or something. It's also possible that Commander and HSCI aren't totally working with SEELE; Gendo wasn't, in the main series. If that's the case then taking them out might actually make things worse. Either way, we need to know more about those two and what they're planning.Regarding the main chambers or the MAGI or other highly restricted locations, well, that's just a location. If we're going to that much trouble just to get there then we need something just as important to do when we arrive. I don't want to rely on the Quebecois to throwing us a bone. Not for something so critical, at least.
>>2295947I'm going off the information in the weird flashback/half-dead scenes.>>2270425Ophelia(?) wants us to go to the main chamber, although that might be a flashback to whatever we did when Ophelia was around.>>2270429Commander(?) wants to talk to Major alone. Depending on the time past, they might still be together, but pinning down a location on the commander is bound to be hard as shit.Basically it's a choice between going for the major, or going for our only reliable and powerful ally.
