>Regarding Raven EditionHello, good people of /qst/. This quest is, as is probably obvious from the OP pic, based on the Teen Titans animated series. You'll be taking the part of a young man and potential Titan, guiding him through his trials and tribulations.>RulesThere will be a 15 minute voting period between posts.Please only choose one option (I will let you know in cases where you can choose more)An option with two arrows (>>) beside it is one that can be combined with other optionsWrite-ins of dialogue are allowed, but they won't be put in as-written, just sort of the spirit of the write-in. Additionally, dialogue write-ins require a significant amount of support from other players to be put in, as they can greatly affect the character. Action write-ins will only be allowed under certain circumstances, which I'll announce. You can suggest an action to me if you want, and I may allow it, but might not depending on various factors.No dice system in this quest. Victory and defeat will come down to decisions rather than random luck. Learn from experiences, develop strategies, and think outside the box at times (like I said, an action can be suggested to me).Above all, have fun. I want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Through success, failure, and everything in-between, I hope this will be an adventure worth remembering.Last thread is kept here >http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=TT+Quest>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Master+of+GamesTwitter: https://twitter.com/INSTIGATORQST
What is Beast Boy's plot???
With Beast Boy having flown off to unleash some nefarious vengeance upon you for his defeat in the chicken fight, you and the others are left to watch the sky and wonder what exactly he has planned."So, any idea what he's going to do?" Donna asks."Knowing Beast Boy?" Robin asks. "It could be pretty much anything.""Knowing Beast Boy, it's probably going to be something annoying," Raven suggests. "Or something stupid that backfires on him."Cyborg smirks. "You mean like the time he accidentally covered Star in motor oil?"Starfire looks anything but pleased with the memory, and you find yourself questioning exactly what circumstances would lead to such a mistake being able to occur. The wondering and guessing doesn't last long. Soon, the fun resumes, and the next round of chicken fights begin. Starfire sits on Robin's shoulders, while Donna sits on Cyborg's. While they engage in their next competition, you look to see Raven still sitting it out. The two of you could make a final team, but she doesn't really look like she wants to get involved.Well, with Beast Boy gone, you can't join in, either. Maybe you should find out if anything's up with Raven. While the others splash and shove, you swim over to your pale-skinned friend.She doesn't say anything as you come over to her, just sort of glancing in your direction as you swim by her to reach the pool wall, seeing what you're doing. When you just sort of hang out there, she just sort of silently accepts the company and watches as the others play.>>A. "So, any reason you're not joining in?">>B. "What do you think Beast Boy's up to?">>C. "You're not feeling left out or anything, right?">D. Don't say anything, just sort of hang>/>>E. Write-in

>>2466674>>2466685>>2466700We got us a three-way, boys and girls
>>2466700"What do you think Beast Boy's up to?" you ask her as Donna and Starfire start shoving at each-other. "Something stupid, I'm sure," Raven answers, shrugging her shoulders.She seems about as chatty as normal. Sometimes you have a hard time figuring Raven out. She spends most of her time by herself, and when she does join up with the group, she usually pretty much sits in a corner while everyone else has fun. You know she cares about her friends, obviously, and that she is capable of smiling and the like, but she never seems to let herself join in the fun with everybody, the only exception being movie nights. Well, maybe that's just Raven. Whatever works for her, you guess.Robin seems to be kicking at Cyborg under the water, but the big guy stands firm, and Donna seems to be slowly overpowering Starfire. It looks like the couple are in some trouble, there.>>A. "Sure you don't feel like joining in? We could make a team.">>B.

Back home, and I want to relink my post from the last thread since I was proud of it.>>>2466649
>>2466835A little late, by I appreciate your gesture anon.
>>2466776"I get the impression these things aren't as fun for you as they are for me," you tell Raven, who looks at you from the corner of her eye as you continue. "Maybe we can hang out sometime, do something you want to do?""I..." Raven starts before taking a breath. "I do enjoy these things, just not in the same way that you and the others do. I enjoy being around my friends, but usually not the things they're doing. Trust me, I get plenty of enjoyment just like this."She turns her head to better look at you. "But, that sounds...nice. We'll make plans later."Agreeing to that, you spend the next few minutes doing things Raven's way. You stay where you are in mostly silence, watching as your friends play and make noise and have a grand time. It's not really your style, but there is something kind of nice about just watching your friends have fun and be happy. The chicken-fight seems pretty even, and really looks like it could go either way. But before it can be decided, both Donna and Star are struck on their heads, something falling from the sky and surprising them with the sudden impact. In their surprise, the two fall back off their partner's shoulders and into the water. While they recover, you look up into the sky and see a green pelican flying overhead. It lowers its head, and something else falls, hitting Robin on the top of the head and soaking him with water. Oh, water balloons. Seeing that he's been spotted, Beast Boy drops his entire payload, sending a beak-full of balloons dropping like bombs upon you and the others.>A. Create a barrier to protect yourself!>B. Dive underwater>C. Raise a hand to cover your face. Being splashed is fine, but you don't want it to hit you in the face>>D. "Take cover!">>E. Look for water balloons you can throw back>>F.

>>2466851>>E. Look for water balloons you can throw back>>F. Fly up after Beast BoyWe can't let him get away with this.
>>2466851>A. (and Raven)>>G. Try something new. You can lift solid objects, but can you lift liquids? Try throwing pool water at Beast Boy.
>>2466851>>D. "Take cover!">B. Dive underwater
>>2466869I'll vote for this.
>>2466851>>>E. Look for water balloons you can throw back
>>2466869>>2466874>>2466902He's not going to catch you off-guard that easily. You raise your right hand, concentrate, let a twinge of fear move through you, and create a barrier to protect yourself. You expand it a bit to protect Raven as well, and the water balloons soon slam against it, breaking on the surface and covering your psychic barrier in water. You need a way to return fire, but you don't know if there's any water balloons you can use against your airborne adversary. Maybe you don't need them, though. You can use your psychic abilities to move solid objects, but what about liquid? It seems worth a try, and if it works, Beast Boy's going to be in for one heck of a surprise. Keeping up the barrier in case Beast Boy has some more balloons hidden somewhere, you reach out with your free hand, drawing on angered memories as you will the water to fly skyward. You manage a pretty big splash, but nothing near what you'd hoped to accomplish. Beast Boy makes a hard turn, flying for the mansion roof. "How much do you want to bet he's got more up there?" Robin asks."Well then, we know where to get our ammunition," Donna declares, flying from the pool and toward the roof herself."This is gonna be fun," Cyborg comments, pulling himself from the pool and running toward the mansion. >A. Go after Donna and pursue Beast Boy to the roof>B. Go after Cyborg and see what he has planned>C. Keep in the pool and get ready to protect yourself and Raven with a barrier if need be>D. Stay in the pool and dive if more balloons come your way>E. Keep trying to throw water from the pool>/>>F. Write-in
>>2466944>A. Go after Donna and pursue Beast Boy to the roof
>>2466944>F. Tell Raven "This madman must be stopped." dive into the pool>E. Keep trying to throw water from the pool.This is a good opportunity to refine our powers.
>>2466962Going with this.
>>2466962>>2466976>>2466977>>2466985Okay, I don't normally do this, but I want you guys to roll a d20. You'll get 3 chances
>>2466994dice+1d20first time using a dice roller, lets see if I fuck it up
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>2466994
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>2466999I fucked it up
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>2466994
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2466994
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>2466994
>>2467000>>2467001>>2467003Okay, counting these three
>>2467011hope we were trying to roll low.
>>2467012Afraid not. Like I said, don't usually like to use dice, but this is sort of a big thing in terms of suddenly developing Pete's powers, so I needed something to go on rather than trying to decide if it works or not
>>2467013No worries! I hope the result does clue us into whether this is an avenue that can be pursued or alternatively that this is definitively a non-starter.
>>2467000>>2467001>>2467003"This madman must be stopped," you declare to Raven, diving beneath the water. Donna can probably catch up with Beast Boy, and you're sure Cyborg's got a plan of some kind, but you want to give another try at throwing water from the pool up at your foe. Since you've decided to dive underwater in order to protect yourself from possible attacks, you have a limited time-frame to accomplish this before you'll need to come up for air. As you lie beneath the surface and think, you are unable to really figure out why this sort of thing hasn't been working for you. You make another attempts to call on the abilities you typically use for telekinesis and making attacks, but again only manage a sizable splash. Obviously your mind is making contact with the substance, but it feels a bit like trying to throw water with your hand; the substance just drains pours right off you, and your ability to use it in the meantime is incredibly limited.Your lungs cry out for more air, and you return to the surface, where your ears are assailed by the sounds of "combat". You look up and see that Beast Boy is no longer the only one armed with water balloons. In fact, he seems to be under attack.He flies as fast as he can in the form of a falcon as Donna speeds after him, hurling a balloon that sends him falling from the sky. "BB!" Cyborg shouts, rushing to catch the falling changeling, who returns to human form in his mechanical hands."Cyborg...." Beast Boy groans dramatically. "Avenge me....""I promise, I'll make her pay," Cyborg tells him in mock-seriousness, gingerly setting down Beast Boy as if he truly were dying, and grabbing up some water balloons.Cyborg and Donna engage in an exchange of balloons, with Donna dodging through the air, and Cyborg leaping out of the way in time to avoid her counterattack. Meanwhile, Beast Boy crawls through the grass toward what seems to be a major stockpile of the balloons. Before he can reach it, though, Starfire scoops up an armful of them, and heads for the roof, where Robin sits perched and watches the chaos unfold. >A. Go help Donna against Cyborg>B. Go help Cyborg avenge Beast Boy>C. Go help Beast Boy get some balloons>D. Go stop Beast Boy from getting balloons>E. Get balloons and attack Robin and Starfire>F.

>>2467050>>G. Get some balloons and attack everybodyWILDCARD, BITCHES.
>>2467061>>2467070>>2467073I'll change to support this as long as we don't attack Raven. She's not playing so she's not a target.
>>2467081All are targets if you are the villain. Even the bystanders.
>>2467096Curse you anons!
>>2467081I agree with this.
>>2467102I honestly didn't think this through. I should have voted to get an ally.
>>2467102We're already a demon. Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of wars.
>>2467061Your strategy doesn't seem like it will be of much use today. So, you'll just have to take the basic approach to combat, here. Pulling yourself from the pool and leaving Raven in relative peace, you make your way to the stockpile of water balloons, grabbing some for yourself and going to war. As Beast Boy struggles toward the balloons, you provide him with one right to the face, stopping him in his tracks as he groans and lowers his head in defeat. Then, you throw another, this one targeting Cyborg, and hitting him in the back. The metal man looks to you in surprise, which leaves him open to an attack from Donna.The dark-haired girl gives you a thumbs up, only to gasp and bring up her arms as you hurl a balloon at her face. Two more are already in your hands, and you toss them up to the roof, using your powers to give them the push needed to reach Robin and Starfire. All eyes are on you, now. >A. Raise your hands and surrender>B. Tell them all to back off, or you'll throw all of these balloons at Beast Boy>C. Go crazy and have some fun. Use your powers, give an evil laugh, be the villain that the other Titans have to fight.>D. "Raven, help!">/>>E. Write-in
>>2467117>>C. Go crazy and have some fun. Use your powers, give an evil laugh, be the villain that the other Titans have to fight.
>>2467117>C.>E. Except Raven. The EVIL DOCTOR BADMAN has standards!
>>2467121to clarify, we are the EVIL DOCTOR BADMAN. It is us.
>>2467123>>2467121That sounds like something from a kinky roleplay.
>>2467124Nah, I use simpler names for kinky roleplay. THE EVIL DOCTOR BADMAN is from my concept album.
>>2467117>C. Go crazy and have some fun. Use your powers, give an evil laugh, be the villain that the other Titans have to fight.
>>2467117>C. Go crazy and have some fun. Use your powers, give an evil laugh, be the villain that the other Titans have to fight.>It took all of you to combine your strength and rise up to even challenge me!
>>2467119>>2467121You've successfully made an enemy out of everybody in this confrontation. Foes have stopped fighting one-another, and turned their attention to you. Soon, you will face the combined wrath of the remaining Teen Titans (aside from Raven, who seems to be simply enjoying having the pool to herself). In a situation like this, you might as well have fun and go a little crazy. So as the other Titans get ready to attack, you let out the best evil laugh you can, and use your powers to levitate some of the water balloons off of the pile, having them float around you as you look toward your opponents."Titans, go!" Robin shouts, leaping from the roof-top. With a thought, you hurl a pair of water balloons up at Robin, who takes them head-on before Starfire catches him and brings him safely to the ground. Cyborg and Donna come rushing in, with the amazon throwing the first balloon, which splashes harmlessly against your psychic barrier. You psychically throw a balloon back at her, but Cyborg blasts it out of the air with his Sonic Cannon. Drawing more balloons to yourself, you begin throwing a whole volley at Cyborg and Donna, leaving you open to an attack from Robin and Starfire. Two balloons strike you in the back, and your body gives a jolt as the freezing water explodes over it. You hurl some more balloons back their way, slightly relenting in your attack against Cyborg and Donna in the process. They aren't in any position to counterattack, though, and you seem to be in the clear, until a balloon falls on your head, and you look up to see a pterodactyl Beast Boy opens his claws to drop a dozen balloons at you.>A. Hold this position! Use a barrier and counter!>B. You've been surrounded! Teleport to a new spot and use your powers to continue the fight>C. Fly into the air and pass through Beast Boy's attack, use the aerial advantage against your foes>D. Admit defeat>/>>E. Write-in
>>2467189>E. Catch Beast Boy's balloon assault and send it back at him!
>>2467189>E. Try to psychically push the balloons Beast Boy just dropped back in his direction, then fly into the air and use the aerial advantage against your foes.
>>2467189>>C. Fly into the air and pass through Beast Boy's attack, use the aerial advantage against your foes
>>2467207>>2467216As Beast Boy's balloons come falling to you, you reach up for them, channel your psychic energies, and give him one heck of a surprise. >To be continuedThis is where we'll stop for tonight, I was planning to run for longer, but still haven't shaken whatever I've got that's wrong with me.We'll continue tomorrow or Thursday.I hope everyone had fun
>>2467226Thanks MoG. Get well soon.
>>2467226Thanks for running MoG. Good times.
>>2467228>>2467229Thanks for playing, and putting up with my hectic scheduling
>>2467231Nah man, its important to take care of yourself.Have another bikini Raven.
>>2467231>putting up with my hectic schedulingI just assumed that the delays were due to Beast Boy needing time to put his plan together.
>>2467236Hah>>2467235Thank you, anon
>>2467236How many balloons have been thrown already? He must have spent days making that stockpile.
>>2467240Dozens, and yes he did
>>2466668Aw man, didn't see this was up
>>2467244Any plans on when you might run next?
>>2467253>>2467226We'll continue tomorrow or Thursday.
>>2467254reading comprehension derp
>>2467253>>2467254>>2467256No prob. Again, sorry my schedule has been poor for the past couple of weeks.
>>2467262Relax MoG. Its cool.
By the way, if Peter ever needs to adopt a villain persona again, he could use the name Red Nightmare. It's another reference to King Crimson, of course. http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm9782151
>>2467299Shit I like it.My friend was taking about the Crimson King from Stephen King's novels, and I liked the idea of that as his Terror Titan's counterpart, but fuck if Red Nightmare isn't better.
>>2467327I would have suggested it when Peter first decided to go heel on the other Titans this session, but I didn't want to without posting a video of the song, and it took me that long to find one that wasn't a cover.
>>2467353Yeah, apparently Robert Fripp is really touchy about any KC stuff on youtube that isn't part of their official channel.
>>2467359At least they let it be on youtube at all. Go find a Garth Brooks song that's not a cover, or a sub-par recording of a live performance
>>2467618And of course there's Prince.Radical Action to Unseat Hold of Monkey Mind is on Google Play though. I started listening to it since I got us into this King Crimson mess, and according to the internal tracker, I've heard the album 172 times now, though granted, I sleep with music on.
>>2467621Are you able to recite the whole thing, yet?
>>2467627Nope. But I'm still enjoying it though I think its getting time I move on and tackle their discography in earnest.So what are you doing up at this hour, Mr. EST?
>>2467299Yellow Jester Simon when?Black Queen (Pete's gf) when?
>>2467881Black Queen is Freddy Mercury.
I think I might have teased out one of Raven's interests that might help us develop our friendship with her. No points for knowing she's an avid reader, but from Spellbound we know she doesn't strictly read practical books. She was enthralled by the story of Rorek and Malchior's battle. She enjoys storytelling. This jives with her joining in on movie nights and her TTG incarnation enjoying Pretty Pretty Pegasus. So I think a good development path would be to consume media together and then talk about it. The talking about it in particular is the valuable part, since Raven and Pete will get to express their opinions and reveal more about themselves.A good starting point would be a book (though the actual reading isn't much of a together sort of thing), or a movie (can be done together, but selecting one is harder). If we meet with some success then it might be cool to weld Raven and Peter's interests together by having Peter lend her a concept album. They can discuss the story but also the music.
>>2468683We could introduce her to tabletop RPGs.
>>2468708One step at a time anon. She could be a fantastic GM, but we need to start somewhere on firmer ground.inb4 *she* introduces Peter to ttrpgs, because he lived in a cult and only has a really narrow cross section of popculture.
>>2468729I betcha she secretly wants to introduce people to the setting she built over the years, but never had it in her to form a TTRPG group.
>>2468746To everyone's surprise, its actually a sci-fi setting.
>>2468729>Implying Blood would pass up a chance to run a Tomb of Horrors like game to fuck with Sam and the gangBlood confirmed for That DM.
>>2468835If he were aware of it, sure. Blood strikes me as the as the sort of guy who was a frat bro in college. Given the guy looks like he's in his 40s at the very youngest, and that the cartoon was in 2003, that would make him an 80s frat bro. Mostly this impression comes from how he would sometimes come across as casual and irreverent when he was in full control, like when he said 'surfs up' to Cyborg when he used his schematics to create a seismic generator in the ocean.
>>2468758That makes sense, it'd be more novel.What would each titan play?
>>2468976Hard to say without a setting, or classes. I think in broader strokes it would look like this:Beast Boy, Donna and Starfire would all play uncomplicated combat monsters so they don't have to worry so much about the fiddlier details of the game. Beast Boy and Starfire would then focus on having a good time, for Donna being strong is part of the good time. She might end up the team leader.Cyborg would learn the rules inside out, and make something ungodly minmaxed, possibly with the crafting and gear rules. He wouldn't actually ruin the game, just require Raven to change some assumptions about the campaign she's running.Robin would consider being leader, but with enough other strong personalities playing, he'd take the opportunity to relax and play a support character. Maybe even a sneaky thief type.Peter would probably try playing the face, and find that his capacity for deviousness really useful.
We'll be running tomorrow night, and I'll be lurking
>>2468683Funny you should mention Malchior...
>>2469113You know, in a way I sympathize with Malchior. Being trapped in a book for 1000 years is awful. Whatever his crimes, I think he's paid his debt to society, so to speak. He would have been a much more fascinating character to me if after Raven released him he had not been hostile, and instead confessed to deceiving her, answered any questions she might have had and gone in peace.
>>2469125Well, he simply went out onto the roof and was attacked seconds later.
>>2469131I'd have to rewatch the episode. He did show up alongside the Brotherhood of Evil though.
>>2469135True, and Herald fucked him up
>>2469146Probably in space now. Is that what you were hinting at? When Starfire finally gets her own season we'll meet space-tyrant Malchior?
>>2469153Nah, but space will certainly be involved in Starfire's season
>>2469169Did you see my Tamaranean theory from last thread?>>2466649I had the misfortune of posting it right as you started the new thread, and while I did repost it earlier, it was in the middle of a session, so it got kind of lost in the shuffle.
>>2469187Yes, it's neat
>>2469190Thank you MoG-kohai.So. Wanna shoot the shit? I got the night off and am really just putting around watching music videos on youtube.
>>2469045I can see that happening, though here's my view of what would happen in a D&D-like setting and system:BB, the Druid, sometimes forgets what his spells do and his roleplaying ends up being just himself, but he's having a good time.Starfire, Barbarian, just beats things up and has a good time, but ends up being a suprisingly kind barbarian.Donna, Fighter, tactical leader of the group, completely against retreat and actually starts playing it like a wargame.Cyborg, exactly what you said. Probably an artificer?Robin, Rogue, just takes a more background role and chills, I agree.Pete, Bard. Of course.
>>2469200I'm always lurking
>>2469209Fair assessments.Unrelated: Peter needs to use those 3000 dollars he's got saved up to customize his room. He needs a good sound system among other things. Right now he just has a radio that can play CDs.
>>2469261True, I should have a session of that.
>>2469394I wouldn't make it a super high priority, or even a full session, unless its going to double as something else (someone joins us in the shopping, etc). I'd be just as content to do a 'choose one or more' poll for things to get for KC's room, and let whatever wins over X votes be added to his room, with whatever he can't afford being earmarked for future purposes.
>>2469418I'll ask about that
>>2469560I voted no, but I'm not against the idea of Peter buying stuff, I just hope it's not the same as last time. I found it to be a bit too drawn out to have Peter visit every store one by one by himself. It might be more fun for me if there are one or more other characters present (Donna's room might still need some things too?), or alternatively if we can pick everything across just one or two votes and not spend a whole session on it.
>>2469560Voted no for the same reasons as >>2469588Lets shop via poll, and maybe address it in character by inviting someone to check out our now furnished room.
>>2469603>>2469588>>2469418>>2469394>>2469261Okay, to get started on buying stuff for Pete's room, I've made this pollhttps://www.strawpoll.me/15486166You can select as many as you want so long as they do not go over Peter's budget. Anything that gets at least ten votes will be considered (though in the case of something like different kinds of TVs receiving more than 10 votes each, the one with the most will be chosen).Once this has been up for a while, we'll go from there.If you think of anything else, ask about it here and I'll try to give a price
>>2469952Things to buy:Nice Sound systemSubscription to music streaming serviceReally nice headphonesGood but cheap headphones for work outs
>>2469952Peter probably didn’t have a good selection of books to read while growing up. Raven could help giving us some ideas.
>>2470025The HIVE actually had extensive libraries
>>2470446How much did they have in the way of light reading? I imagine they'd mostly be books on combat, history, and maybe philosophy. And plenty of books written by Blood that are required reading.
>>2470457And books blood got for cheap at thrift shops because ugh got to play good guy to these kids. What's the point of being abcult leader if I can't laugh maniacally whenever I want?And that's how Linus discovered Amelia Bedelia.
>>2470461>Amelia Bedelia>Not the Hardy Boys>>2470457Light reading was a much smaller section, but there were books to be found.
>>2470463Alright thanks. I think Pete would have a healthy smattering of books, CDs, and movies of different genres (with some having more than others based on what he knows he likes already).Also really? No movies option in that poll?
>>2470480Ran out of spaces
We'll be starting soon
>>2470701Looking forward to it.

Additionally, dialogue write-ins require a significant amount of support from other players to be put in, as they can greatly affect the character. Action write-ins will only be allowed under certain circumstances, which I'll announce. You can suggest an action to me if you want, and I may allow it, but might not depending on various factors.No dice system in this quest. Victory and defeat will come down to decisions rather than random luck. Learn from experiences, develop strategies, and think outside the box at times (like I said, an action can be suggested to me).Above all, have fun. I want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Through success, failure, and everything in-between, I hope this will be an adventure worth remembering.Last thread is kept here >http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=TT+Quest>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Master+of+GamesTwitter: https://twitter.com/INSTIGATORQST
It's hard to read the face of a pterodactyl, but you're pretty sure that what you see from Beast Boy's prehistoric persona is pure shock as his payload of watery weapons not only stop their descent, but start coming right back up at him. His eyes seem to bulge out of his head, and he gets into too much of a shocked panic to actually move out of the way, meaning that the only one to suffer the wrath of his many balloons is the green guy himself.Beast Boy spirals and falls from the sky like a war plane, while you climb higher and higher, pulling up more of the balloons from the reserve pile with with your powers and taking aim as Starfire and Donna come flying up after you. When you hurl your balloons at the girls this time, though, they easily evade the attack, getting in close and pelting you with a pair of balloons. A second after that, a blue light swallows up several of your balloons, and birdarangs pierce the others, rendering them useless. Starfire and Donna come around for another run, and both Robin and Cyborg get ready to attack from the ground, while Beast Boy shakes off the effects of your prior attack and returns to normal form.>A. Raise your hands and surrender>B. Surround yourself with a barrier and buy yourself some time>C. Quickly grab more balloons from the pile and throw them at the others>D.

>>2470799There doesn't seem to be any avoiding this next volley, so you decide to block it instead, creating a barrier around yourself. The balloons harmlessly break against your psychic force-field, and you buy yourself enough time to take more balloons from the pile with your powers, throwing them at your attackers. They're expecting it this time, however, and you miss every throw. Things are not looking good for you. You're surrounded, and your tactics are becoming less effective by the second. Your barrier won't last forever, either. Either you'll run out of energy, or someone will break it themselves. You are competing with four people that can make use of super-human strength, and a man with gadgets that can make him just as dangerous. Your foes grab their balloons and begin closing in for the kill.>A. Surrender>B. Keep your barrier up for as long as possible>C. Teleport to the pile and start flinging>D.

>>2470850>>2470852Anybody want to use either of these?
>>2470878>>2470850Gotta ham it up
>>2470878I'll support my own>E. "YOU WILL NEVER DEFEAT ME TITANS!" since I think we can be hamming this up more.
>>2470878I can support the Hammy one.
>>2470850"YOU WILL NEVER DEFEAT ME, TITANS!" you declare in the most hammy voice you can muster, using your psychic abilities to perform a dastardly trick against your friends.The balloons in their hands begin to pop, sometimes when just being held normally, but more often when they're winding up for a throw, resulting in them getting water in their faces. Once again in a state of shock and chaos, the Titans give up their attacks, and you're free to drop the barrier and reorient yourself, returning to the pile of balloons.You hadn't really counted how many balloons you and the others were using up until this point, but the stockpile is nearly empty, and there is no sign of either you or the others giving up. "Truce?" Robin offers upon noticing the lack of ammo. >A. "Truce.">B. "Never, Titan!">>C. Start throwing what's left of the balloons>>D. Try to tackle Robin into the pool>/>>E. Write-in

>>2470906>A. "Truce."I feel like going further now would stop it from being fun and would make Peter start being a dick.
>>2470906>A.>E. Extend a hand in truce, and then teleport both of you above the pool when he shakes on it, so that all shall know that the truce is on your terms! "That was fun!"
>>2470914>>2470911>>2470929"Truce" you agree, allowing the carnage to end and the party to continue.Things are pretty calm after that. At least, they're as calm as they can be at a pool party staffed and attended exclusively by teenagers. Food is consumed, slides are slid down, diving boards are used over and over, Silkie consumes his weight in pretzels, chicken fights are waged, and everybody just has a grand time.Soon enough, though, the sun begins to set, and everybody packs up, departing for home. The next day comes without incident, and you wake up feeling nice and refreshed, ready to take it on. A quick shower and a change of clothes, and you're ready to go. How should you start the day?>A.

>>2470967>A.And though I know they're exclusive, I would ask you to allow us to go straight to>B.afterward
>>2470967>C. Go to the common room and see who's up and aboutMy preference would be to see if anything is going on today first, then train, then meditate to cool down.
>>2470974I mean, unless you expect relaxing meditation to have the potential to spiral off into a different tangent, it just seems like a time saver. We discussed the idea of having an in-place morning routine we could zip through to the more interesting decisions. I'd be cool with doing >B then >A.
>>2470967I'll be a good boy.>B
>>2470980Basically this. But just for you MoG I'll switch >>2470968 to just B
>>2470986Fair, I'll go with >B to be clear.
>>2470967>>B. Go to the training room. There's a lot you could work on
>>2470981You think you'll start the day with a visit to the training room. There's plenty that you could stand to work on, and if nothing else, a workout should be a good way to wake you up this morning. Nobody makes an appearance as you walk the halls, making your way to the training room. As you get closer to your intended destination, though, you hear the sounds of a few of your friends training. Sure enough, when you arrive, you see three familiar faces.Cyborg, Donna, and Starfire are all in the process of holding up mountains of metal, straining as the machine adds more and more for them to hold. Cyborg is lifting less than the two girls, but clearly putting in just as much work. As for Starfire and Troia, it seems as though they're competing to see who can hold the most, as seems typical for them. Other than the machines your friends are using, the room is pretty much free. You can do whatever sort of work-out you want. Training dummies can be used to practice your hand-to-hand technique, or as targets for your powers. The laser ring is free if you want to practice barriers or dodging, the perimeter always works for running laps, and there's plenty of spaces to do basic exercises such as sit-ups, push-ups, or rope-climbing. There's also treadmills, stair-machines, exercise bikes, total gyms, and so on. >A. Go practice fighting with the dummies>B. Go do some basics; running, push-ups, sit-ups, etc.>C. Go into the laser ring>D. See if any of the others want to take a break and spar with you>/>>E. Write-in
>>2471025>>A. Go practice fighting with the dummies
>>2471025>>E. Use the dummies to experiment with whether or not you can use willpower to strengthen your psychic strikes like you've used it to strengthen your barrier and psychic hold.
>>2471025>B. Go do some basics; running, push-ups, sit-ups, etcShould I add>E. Try to go beyond your usual times and limitsOr is that a given? Progression is really important, not just routine.
>>2471025>C. Go into the laser ringReally push to strengthen your shield. It breaks way too easy still.
>>2471025>B.Work on your basics first. I like this >>2471034for afterward.
>>2471036Starting with the basics seems like a good way to get started. A warm-up never hurts. To begin, you run some laps around the room, saying quick "hello"s to your friends as you pass them on your trek. You've done this so much over the past few months that it's gone from grueling to a simple beginning exercise. Your body shakes off any remaining traces of sleep and gets your blood pumping as you go around and around.Just as you're finishing up, and moving onto your push-ups, Robin steps into the room, quickly spotting you and starting over, clearly having something to say. You hold off on getting into your next exercise as he makes his way to you."Hey, I thought I'd find you in here," he greets once you're within comfortable ear-shot. "I've got some news you might want to hear about."He comes to a stop. "When you first moved in, I told you I'd do some digging about your past, or, where you came from. We know about the HIVE, obviously, but I was having a hard time finding anything before that. But, with your name, your sister's name, and some of what Raven overheard from your conversation, I've been able to track down some information. It's not a lot, but I can keep digging if you decide that's what you want. For now, I can show you what I've found, assuming you're still interested.">A. "Absolutely.">B. "I'm interested, but can we do this later? I want to do my daily exercises.">C. "Honestly, it doesn't matter that much anymore. I've found my sister and my mom, and they can tell me what I need to know.">/>>D. Write-in
>>2471103>B.>D. And so as not to be brushing him off shake his hand, "Thank you, Robin."
>>2471103>B. "I'm interested, but can we do this later? I want to do my daily exercises.">D. And so as not to be brushing him off shake his hand, "Thank you, Robin."This sounds good. I was worried B by itself sounded rude.
>>2471120>>2471130>>2471132Still kinda rude, desu
>>2471103>>2471120Backing as well
>>2471134You're right. Hopefully his sincerity will help take the remaining edge off. Context is everything.That said, it might even get a laugh out of Robin. Its not too different from himself or Batman.
>>2471134in that case last minute switch to >A plz
>>2471143Pretty sure I was too late.
>>2471142Yeah, because it was Robin I thought he might like the dedication to keep training.
>>2471120>>2471130"I'm interested," you tell him sincerely. "But, can we do this later? I want to do my daily exercises.""Uh....sure," Robin tells you, not expecting that.You don't want to be rude, or for him to think that you're just brushing him off. So, you shake his hand, and give him sincere thanks."Thank you, Robin," you say, really wanting him to know that you're not just trying to blow him off or disregard the work he's done. He laughs, so you guess he's not offended. "No problem," he says, taking a step back. "We'll talk later."He shakes his head, smiling to himself. Weird. You do some push-ups, sit-ups, take a quick break to drink some water, then decide what to do next. >A. Laser ring>B. Practice fighting using the dummies>C. Go see if anyone wants to spar>/>>D. Write-in
>>2471176>>A. Laser ring
>>2471176>B. Practice fighting using the dummiesWell, at least he knows we are committed to training.
>>2471176>B. Practice fighting using the dummies>D. See if we imbue our punches with Willpower(tm)
>>2471176>>D. Practice using willpower to enhance our psychic strikes.After that go talk to Robin.Also, we really need to get to unlocking a new power.
>>2471176>>D. Use the dummies to experiment with whether or not you can use willpower to strengthen the power of your psychic strikes like you've used it to strengthen your barrier and psychic hold.Beyond stamina, I think Pete's biggest weakness is he doesn't have enough firepower to reliably hurt super-durable foes like Cinderblock or Snowflame.
>>2471192>Implying anyone can harm Snowflame
>>2471192Snowflame isn't super durable. He's just impervious to pain. Our best weapon is to use a will-enhanced hold, and have a super strong buddy wrestle him down and bind him. Or teleport him to a rehab center.
>>2471198We just need to get him to fight someone powered by meth.
>>2471200>He's just impervious to pain.So psychic tickles then?
>>2471207...That actually might work.
>>2471207We need to lock him in a room full of downers to counteract his stims.We need Captain Weed.
>>2471188>>2471190>>2471192Lately, you've noticed that your abilities seem to be enhanced by willpower. While anger might get your telekinesis started, and fear create your barriers, willpower seems to greatly increase their strength. It's how you were able to compete with Donna's incredible strength, for example. But what about your punches? Quick, psychic attacks given an extra kick by the added focus of willpower. That would probably allow you to take on more physically powerful foes in combat. And you have an abundance of perfectly good training dummies waiting for you here. You decide to give it a go. Each psychic punch you throw at the dummy enhanced with your own willpower. And sure enough, you pack a lot more power in your punches with this method, and in fact punch its head off after a few more strikes.Well, that's certainly an improvement.>To be continuedThat's all for tonight, everyone. I hope you had fun.Remember to give this a vote https://www.strawpoll.me/15486166Thank you all for playing, and, again, I hope you had fun
>>2471275Thanks for the run MoG! Could we establish a usual morning routine just to speed some stuff up? Most votes for the start of the day tend to be for the same things anyway.
>>2471275Thanks MoG. It was part last session too, but I enjoyed the entire water balloon saga.
>>2471284I'm glad you enjoyed it>>2471283Sure, that seems like a good idea
>>2471275Thanks for running! Short session today. I kind of wish we could have done a slightly bigger send off for pool party, but it was fun.>>2471283Agreed. Assuming we wake up with nothing pressing, a basic work out (cardio, strength training, etc) could be a gimme. Afterward we can decide if we want to stay in the gym and work on something specific.
Ah crap I'm late
>>2471311btw, how many training dummies do the Titans go through?
>>2471385I'm guessing less than you think, if they can be put back together.
>>2471396This, but dozens are still broken each month
Hey MoG, in case you're there>check social links
>>2471551Beast Boy: Good friendCyborg: Good friendRaven: Good/trusted friendRobin: Respected friendRose: Dear friendStarfire: Cherished friendTroia: Dear friendSilkie: Rank 4Marissa: Brother? Brother.Paul: Hated enemyRyan: Regrettable enemySimon: FriendBlood: Impudent, unruly, arrogant traitor
>>2471560I'm still going for Donna. She's the most fun and also has the sexiest personality.
>>2471571To each their own, anon
>>2471560I like how the band poster is number 1.Personally, I'm against Peter owning a TV. My sense of him is that he watches TV as a social activity, which he can do in the living room, but ultimately that's not my call.
>>2471584This one's a hard call. I think for now Peter might get along with Cyborg and Beast Boy the best, but I went with Simon because so far I think he and Marissa have made the single biggest sacrifice for Peter's sake, and I appreciate that.
>>2471589I voted for Cyborg for the opposite reason. I think their personalities mesh naturally. Simon has indeed made sacrifices for Peter, but Simon does not know him beyond the fact that he's a good guy. That's great best friend potential, but not best friendship by itself.
>>2471608>>2471589That does remind me, I should probably have Peter find out what became of Simon and Marissa
>>2471609I don't know if we have any way to contact them. I figured they'd reach out to us when they feel safe.For that matter, during the timeskip we sort of completely ignored our mom. Hopefully Marissa reached out to her?
>>2471609That sounds ominous.
>>2471617Does it? Hmm, interesting.
>>2471615Cool.Here's a pic of Starfire and Raven.
>>2471560PosterClothesWhat CDs you want, senpai?
>>2471935Think you'll be running, Mog?I'd vote for the obvious progrock and related stuff, but also some weird stuff he picks just to experiment. Like Japanese Samba or some other weird shit.
>>2471944Probably not tonight, but we'll see
>>2471935I figure he goes to a record store and goes by instinct, seeing what pings Samuel's memories, and then later on he can build out from there.He probably winds up with most of King Crimson's catalog, as well as some Yes, some Pink Floyd, and some Emerson Lake and Palmer. Feel free to throw in other stuff that Samuel might have listened to and enjoyed.
>>2471957The point is to surprise us, MoG. Teach us things about Sam we don't know. Accidentally leave there with the yamaha keyboard and no clue if we can even play it.
>>2471560Alright, I will now consider the poll closed.Peter has boughtA King Crimson PosterClothesCDsAnd a CD TowerLet's say he spent about three hundred and twelve dollars.>UpdateThere's a small chance that we'll run on Saturday or Sunday, but for now, everything points to Monday.Things that I'll try to address in the next few sessions:TrainingWhat Robin foundWhat happened to Marissa and SimonYour motherAnd so on
>>2472631Cool. Good to hear.
>>2472631>>2472640Oh, forgot to add making plans with Raven
>>2472646Also that Cyborg is now our best bro and that Raven and Rose fused into one being and won the Peterbowl.
>>2472662I feel like that second part didn't happen
>>2472662What would a Rose-Raven hybrid even look or act like? What would it be called?
>>2472681I'm guessing her dad is Deathgon then.Or maybe Tristroke?
>>2472680Name: According to an Anagram maker, 'Rose Wilson' and 'Rachel Roth' together make 'Rhetoric Hornless Owl'. Less silly: 'Rose' and 'Raven' make 'Nova Serer'. Act: Combine Rose's aggression and volatility with Raven's withdrawn nature, self-esteem issues, and emotion-based powerset firing off near-constantly. Basically, a hot mess.Looks: I repeat, a *hot* mess.
>>2472706I mean, both girls are pretty attractive on their own, how much more impressive could they look together?
>>2472712Ravens curves and roses lady abs?
>>2472719But how well would those work together?
>>2472712Grey skin, white hair, cool magic powers that make her look dope, athletic build.And screwed like none before.I would be down to meet Nova Serer in the Alt-Titans.Now, what other combos would come out interesting?
And I just realized that mixing TT cartoon Raven and Rose ends up creating a Drow.
After Raven and Rose defuse they vow to never do it again, as it was too awful an experience to contemplate.>>2472737Starfire + Troia: Atria Frostier, maximum space amazon. Kind and open-hearted but a bit too confident for her own good.Beastboy + Cyborg: Tyro Bobby Cages. A party animal (1/4). A party machine (1/4). A party man (1/2).And since we're out of partners:Robin + Kid Crimson: Sir Doom Brick Inn. Not actually as foreboding as his name sounds. A competitive workaholic. Honestly not very fun to be around most of the time but smart, well meaning and gives good advice.
>>2472759That sounds like an amazing team.Revenger, Star-Woman, Caged Beast, Crimson Wing?Okay maybe coming up with codenames isn't as easy as it sounds.
>>2472759>tfw no Atria waifu
>>2472735I honestly can't find anything SFW but trust me it works.
>>2472930google 'curvy fit' with safe search on (or off)?
>>2472933Oh I meant of Raven specifically
>>2473271Google 'Raven Abs' and check the images tab. There are at least seven relevant results.
>>2473666Relevant but not what I was looking for though. They're all just slightly off of the look I'm picturing
Google Raven MuscularYou may thank me later.
Due to some schedule changes, I should be able to run Sunday night
>>2477124Cool. Gonna be a weird day tomorrow. My boss told me that we're opening at 4 due to the snow here. I work till 7.
>>2477148Weird. Good luck.
>>2477148On sunday? Man that sucks desu>>2477124Nice
>>2477189Oh, no worries anon, I work every Sunday. I still get plenty of time off.
A NEW CHALLENGER HAS ARRIVEDsource is http://kindahornyart.tumblr.com/
>>2472631>>2472646There's apparently a lot on our plate now and we just had a fun episode, so I promise I'll be patient, but can we have Peter take Donna on a solo outing too? My suggestion would be a concert since it sounds like something Peter would want to do but it's also something I think anons won't ask Raven to go to due to noise and crowds.
>>2478123>Pete climbs on Donna's shoulders to better see the stage
>>2478247Wouldn't she get suspicious that he doesn't just levitate?
>>2478264I mean, only if they go in costume. If they're casual then I don't see the issue.
>>2478279You know, I kind of forgot that Peter has been keeping a secret identity because those weren't really part of the 2003 show.
>>2478123>>2478247>>2478264Lets be real, Donna would put him on her shoulders again. She's interested in Pete. So is Raven, but since she's less outgoing and her last relationship was with a deceptive dragon, she's at a marked disadvantage right now.>>2478297Not that Peter has a secret identity. Peter does not legally exist, and Samuel disappeared as an infant and was subsequently raised in a cult compound.
>>2478303>Pete does not legally existShould he get an actual identity?
>>2478312I mean, assuming he hasn't already, Robin could probably help him out in that regard. But Pete's only family is off the grid, his residence is Titan's Tower, and his friends are all superheroes. A legal identity would be good if he ever intends to get a day job as an adult, but as long as Batman and Robin are bankrolling him, he could conceivably just be a professional hero.
>>2478123I'd vote for it.>>2478316>but as long as Batman and Robin are bankrolling him, he could conceivably just be a professional hero.To do list: Hang out with Robin more. Buy Robin another gift sometime.
>>2478363He already trusts and respects us. Don't look down on him as someone who can be bought with gifts and favors.That said it would be cool to hang out one on one. He's usually so busy we don't get the chance.
>>2478363I still think we should get an identity, if only because someday Pete might have need for it.
>>2478417I promise I'll be good anon.
