Episode 3,

You have survived a single Week since you first gained your powers, not without incident or damage. You have been stabbed, punched, shot at and set on fire. You mutated yourself by throwing your body into a vat of chemicals while in a Tinker Fugue. Now, while you may still technically have a secret identity, your pale skin and green hair will make it very hard to explain exactly what the fuck is going on in your life.

Yesterday you met a new bug themed cape and beat Lung using your new SmileX gas concoction. You then scared the piss out of the undersiders and were given a burner phone with a single number on, that of the Undersiders' mysterious employer.

Now you find yourself in your hideout, once more debating what exactly to do on this fine morning.

Even with a bullet proof umbrella, we still have the issue that we aren't particularly strong. The momentum of a spray of bullets bouncing off any shield will easily knock said shield out of our hands. Might be good for a single enemy with a flintlock pistol.

I'm torn between the desire not to metagame and the desire to tell Coil to fuck right off.
>>
>>2540833
Oh come on, most of the time he's a reasonable guy.
>>
>>2540833
>>2540836

Coil go and stay go
>>
>>2540833

To be honest he's not that bad a guy to work for.

About the same level as the other villians in the setting.

The only bad spot I can pin on him is his melodramatics and his constant torture boner but he gets that out in timelines we don't see so it's hardly like it counts.

That being said the only reason he wins is because he constantly cheats, and the minute his plans go off the rail he usually responds by not only flipping the table but setting it on fire and throwing it at you.

>>
>>2540833
Dunno anything about the series but a bit of looking up the wiki makes him seem like a pretty powerful dude. I say we should try to keep to the Joker theme and try to stay independent as someone who people don't want to mess or work with unless absolutely necessary. Because you know...we're crazy.
>>
>>2540833
At the least if open dialogue with him he's less likely to come after us. Maybe.

I'm more worried about him coming after our family desu.
>>
>>2540842
Though I still don't want to actually work for the guy.
>>
>>2540840

Like I said, compared to the pissed off dragon who'd set you on fire or the literal Nazi who'd gut you like a trout, he's not that bad a guy to work for.
>>
Let’s make a suicide vest of laughing gas so that he can’t torture us
>>
>>2540833
>>2540837
Try not to metagame, It takes the fun outta things. Just ask, "What would Manic do." In this case we need the cash to make our shop, so if they got a job then we should go for it.
Afterward we keep doing our own thing.
>>
>>2540854
We don't work for no ONE, especially some melodramatic prima donna. Let's just interrupt a ABB exchange and steal the money.
>>
>>2540859
I vote this but we use tons of the SmileX stuff.
>>
>>2540857

Let's just go for the wildcard route. Just be confusing, unpredictable and chaotic above anything else.
>>
>>2540866

Works for me. I'm in this for the laughs anyway.
>>
Time to rob a bank then!
>>
>>2540859
We only work for our self! No matter what that fedora wearing bitch say!

plz dont let walking plot device anywhere near us.
>>
>>2540866
That works too. I just don't wanna be aimless, goals are important and possibly essential. How we get things done is where the chaos should come from, but I do want to have some plans for the future.

You figure that calling someone while you tinker is probably a bad idea, so you crack on with what you wanted to make first and resolve to call him later.

For now though, you sink into the madness. You guide the ideas towards what you want, slowly more and more close to your intended end result. It's difficult and time consuming, but eventually you end up with what you were going for. Generally.

[Trickster's Cane]
This is a metal cane with an outer shell made of the same metal as your cards but smooth instead of sharp(obviously) it doesn't cut through things in the same way. Instead it softens whatever it hits and deforms it.

The cane also contains a directional electromagnet that allows you to recall your cards after they've been thrown, or technically anything magnetic enough for the beam to affect.
The cane itself is a rather simple metallic grey all over, except for a handle just under the head which is made of wood, with a button cleverly concealed under the head of the cane. Three faces, one smiling, one crying and one shouting in anger adorn the top.


And then we come to the second priority for the morning.
Calling the Undersiders' mysterious benefactor. You flip open the phone. Contrary to Tattletale's previous statements, there are actually two contacts on the phone one is Blank, while the other is titled "Do not Call from this phone".

Spooky

You decide to give the one that you are supposed to call a ring.

You are left on the line for an uncomfortably long duration, the dial tone your only companion for a good five minutes until a voice that sounds almost slimy answers.
Whoever is on the other side of the phone is obviously very refined, speaking in an upper class tone that you can't quite place.
"Ah Manic, how lovely for you to have accepted my request to speak. You're a very difficult man to get a hold of, I am Coil. And I would like to speak with you about your future."

This is already setting off alarm bells in your head so you interrupt him there, voice twisted into a harsh tone.
"I'm not taking orders, and the Empire have already tried the brute force method, trust me it doesn't work. Ask Stormtiger."

He doesn't seem particularly taken aback by this, merely breathing in for a long second before continuing to speak. "I am quite aware of your staggering penchant for violence, and your excellent showing against Lung last night. I like to think I'm smarter than those simple brutes in the other major crime organisations. I am also aware that you are a Tinker, you build things. Correct? my offer is a simple one, Cash monthly, for a supply of whatever you see fit to make. I'm particularly interested in that gas of yours."
He stops for a second, the sound of ruffling paperwork can be heard. "I'm sure we can negotiate a tidy sum. It would be nice if I could occasionally make use of your other talents, but those would of course be entirely different deals, with more money involved."

What is your response?
>>
>>2540871
To confuse people mostly. I mean we have done some good guy things now it’s time to do some bad guy things.
>>
>>2540872
>"Alright, I'm interested"
Here comes the MONEEEEEEEEEY!
>>
>>2540872
how much gas for how much money?
>>
>>2540872
Why not? Take some SmileX. Just be sure to not get any on your bare skin. Might cause a little tingle.
>>
>>2540871

> Rob empire 88
> Mulch the money

>>2540872

Why not screw with this slimy snake a little? The question is what is the best way to go about it.
>>
>>2540882
I love it.
>>
>laugh manically, then hang up
>>
>>2540872
Accept the offer. It's gonna fuck our karma to have our signature gas used around town. However, we're getting paid, and they'll just come take it anyway if we refuse.
>>
>>2540872
As long as we only give him the non-lethal stuff I'm ok with this
>>
>laugh manically, then hang up
>>
>>2540872
"If you want it you can have it, but I want my name all over it. Branding is important. Also know this deal is NOT exclusive."
>>
>>2540885

Support.

Think about it. What is he suppose to make of that? Is it a gesture of agreement? of rejection?
>>
>>2540872
OP, is that supposed to be an image for snakes?

>laugh manically, then hang up
>>
>>2540872
This. >>2540885
>>
>>2540885

Second.

Nobody get's the fun gas unless we're the guy that's throwing it at them.
>>
>>2540891
Would definitely be interpreted as rejection.
>>
>>2540872
>laugh manically, then hang up

I aint fucking with black market trading. We take out crime gangs, attempt to make ourself an OC waifu, and fuck with heros. we don't usually cause crime and this laugh gas could cause more trouble than it's worth

Ask if there is anything he had in mind

Come the fuck on guys, the benefits outweight the bad things by a lot. Having his resources would do wonders to our progress, and we could always do like in canon and cross him when he outlives his usefulness.

>laugh manically, then hang up

reminder weaker nonlethal SmileX is the same as the lethal, just diluted an incredible amount

Alright, I'm interested.

How about we just rob this guy blind? Throw a shit ton of that laugh gas at him and his entire gang
>>
With coil he sees us as a threat or a resource, may as well get something out of it for a month or two.
>>
>>2540901

Progress? Are we actually progressing towards a concrete goal at the moment? Thus far it seems like we're exploring our power and playing the role of Bugs bunny.

>>2540901

Money's one thing, Hiring us for jobs is even better.

The problem I've got with him is his interest in our laughing gas.

That sounds like a fucking set up if I ever heard one and if there's one thing this asshole is good at it's setups.

If he just wanted labor then I'd be all for it, but he tipped his hand and I'm not about to fall for that trap.
>>
Couldn’t we just ya know. MAKE HIM A NEW GAS AND KEEP THE SMILED FOR US?
>>
Laugh then hang up. No one gets our special sauce. Or if we want to be friendly offer a secondary kind of gas that's just souped up tear gas.
>>
We should booby trap our hq with tons of gas so if anyone breaks in to get us we will be the only one to get out.

>>
>>2540885

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
>>
His mistake was asking for the gas.
>>
>>2540935
I didn't say he can see the future, but if he was running a simulation beforehand and approached us with an offer, be it directly or via Tattles, he'd have known that chances are any of his offers would have resulted in us laughing at his face before he dropped that timeline.
>>
Guys the password to get into our front door should be a knock knock joke voice recognition type thing.
>>
So if Coil can see multiple outcomes and pick the most favorable, how does anyone ever beat him? Is just to keep making no-win scenarios for him and force him to just give up any attempts at winning?
>>
He can only run 2 at a time, and there are bigger monsters namely someone whose power is to win.
>>
Is this guy for real? He actually thinks that you'll hand over your greatest creation to someone else for some money, what a jackass. You make your disagreement known by howling with laughter and hanging up before grabbing as many of your gadgets as possible and looking through all the windows.

No one appears to be outside though, and you can't hear any cars for quite a while. In the end there doesn't seem to be any attack incoming or army of mercenaries busting down your door.
[Because in the timeline where he tried, you dumped your SmileX mix in the bay]

You decide to head out for the night, grab some food from whatever you find and take the dog for a walk.
[Coil's assassin misses the first shot, a card taking his hand off and causing him to drop the rifle, which lands on a sloped factory roof under his perch window, neatly delivering it to you.]
After a while you manage to find an all night pancake place that lets dogs in, so you settle down for a nice meal.
[The four mercenaries waiting in the wings jump in and are gassed into unconsciousness, their masks being unable to protect from the perfect Tinker Gas. Four rifles drop to the floor]
You stand up, sated.
[Coil stubs his toe on the weird little step thing in his doorway, breaking his toe and causing him to accidentally close the wrong timeline.]

You quickly collect five Tinkertech laser rifles alongside the squad's mundane sidearms. Magazines and batteries quickly being loaded onto a broken old trolley and ran back to the factory, the ambush only having happened two blocks away.
Afterwards you walk back into town, your spaniel not far behind you. there are a lot of people around, but none of them freak out or anything, so you assume that the hospital incident hasn't been made public yet to avoid scaring people.

You head up towards a hotdog vendor, but as you look at all the different choices you are struck by indecision. You shuffle awkwardly from foot to foot while um'ing and ah'ing, too tired and confused to make a proper decision.

You hear a gruff, and oddly familiar voice behind you.
"Excuse me, perhaps I could order while you decide?"

You step to the side out of courtesy, masked face still still fixed on the price board.
"Yeah that sounds good. Sure thing man"

It's very quiet for a second, then you turn to the blue armoured figure standing next to you.

Bugger

[ARMSMASTER OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2Wi0XWIdXA]

You both move in the same instant, your cane rising to meet his halberd.

it's always been the first three rolls. it's just you always crit on roll two or three.

Always

>>2541147
Last we saw him, he had a mechanical arm in place of the one we amputated.
>>
Alright fair enough. I speed read the first archived thread so I must've missed that roll. My bad.
>>
>>2541147
Nah, knowing him he probably kept his robot arm because 'Muh Efficiancy'.

Besides a robo arm can store tools and shit, all a meat arm can do is sweat and be delicious.
>>
On reflection I'm glad the fail and success from the previous roll applied where they did.
I'd rather lose to Armsmaster than Coil.
>>
>>2541128
Well shit, at least on the plus side at least we stole tinker tech guns from Coil and he closed the wrong timeline, also fuck Coil.

>>2541131
I blame Contessa, I don't know how or why, but I blame her for us not getting a hotdog.

Fair. Contessa's a cunt.

I failed.

Your weapons clash between you as you both dance around each other's strikes and thrusts. Armsmaster's halberd has a reach advantage, but you're fast and agressive enough that it only barely keeps you at bay, his breathing is hard and comes ragged after a continuous exchange that goes on longer than either of you would have wanted. You on the other hand, are smiling like always, your porcelain skin reflecting the light from the dingy streetlamps. You appear to have the edge when it comes to stamina as well. eventually you manage to push in close, pulling back your other hand for a punch to the jaw.

Armsmaster's new arm lights up as the fatigue disappears from his face, fist crackling with lightning and eyes piercing as always. Ah hell, he played you.

The resulting punch knocks you a good ten feet away, convulsing from the electrical impact.

"I have you to thank for this don't I Manic? Yeah I know it's you, your voice is the same." He spins his halberd and takes up a guard stance as you somersault to your feet, smile seeming more feral now, and showing more teeth. "I've been looking for an excuse to start replacing my flesh with machinery for some time, but the director was always against it. It'd make me look unstable she said, HA!.. When I take you in I'll be taking those cards of yours too, I figure they might be just what I need for a project I've been working on."

He's trying to rile you up, it's working.

The two of you circle each other again, a substantial crowd having gathered around you by now, and filming your every move. There are a few more exchanges of blows, but you're much more careful now so you neither of you come out ahead. Then you have a very cunning plan.

You point your cane at his arm and overcharge the magnetic field generator, a humming coming from both your cane and his arm. Then his arm comes shooting off, almost too fast for you to grab, but you do.

"THANKS FOR THE FREE SAMPLE OF TECH, ARM-MASTER."

Right as you turn around to run away, his confused expression turns incandescent with rage, and he dashes after you. He's pretty fast for a regular guy.

But he can't follow you up onto the roofs.
But a Bullet in his legs will slow him down.

You hurl yourself upwards, your boots providing even more lift due to the thrusters on the bottom. leaving Armsmaster far behind on street level. It does turn out that he has some kind of grappling hook, but it's so much slower than your enhanced reactions and mobility that by the time he's up, you're already on the next building over. He never makes up the difference in the end. and before long you and Bruce find yourself back at the hideout. heating up some sausages you popped into a 7/11 to buy.
With a welder. You know, you could really do with some proper facilities round here.

Okay, so this is gonna be the last post for the night.

You begin your research not in the brainstorming area this time, but by looking around your hideout, this place needs to be made more secure and you know how to do it.
Firstly, a second set of walls is placed inside of the main ones, made of thick sheets of Inconel. This will protect against Pretty much anything trying to batter the doors or walls down short of an Endbringer. Next you have the alarms, these ones are just theory at the moment, but you have an idea for a chemical compound which when activated by sound, starts reacting and moving like crazy to the point where it could work as a bell with something to ring against.
The last actual change you make is to the warehouse. You shift enough metal that the warehouse has actual rooms now, with heavy Inconel doors in between the main area and the workshop/laboratory.
The main room where you sleep and chill now has a television and a proper radiator now as well, that's pretty awesome. And Bruce seems to enjoy sleeping next to the radiator.

Now it's a place you could show your friends. If you had any friends.

see you at five or so tomorrow.
I'll stay here and answer questions for about an hour or so.

A bit relieved actually, She'd heard that you were a ranting murderous maniac and as a result all of her deductions used that as a base point.
Whereas when she saw you her power went like.

Of course, we got QMC AND Joker's plot armor!

I'm saying it for everyone, we should improve our defenses by a bit. Maybe have a bit of SmileX always in the air, maybe try to increase the density of our iconel to really screw with everything that hits us

How's Taylor doing? Has she joined the Undersiders or did we cockblock them from getting her?

Panacea left that particular bit out of the report, for reasons unknown.
Bakuda knows of you, yes.

>>2541625
Unstable, and getting chewed out by Piggot is never fun. What he's actually scared of is Dragon's reaction.

>>2541626
no, you cut out the part of his brain largely responsible for aggression, independence and intuition.

Standard Master Containment lasts for a week, four days left until she's free. (potentially)

Molecular processing is externalised by your powers in the form of specialising in chemical reactons, and the understanding of structures and how they should be. your actual ability to use these skills is a result of your unique Tinkering method. You are essentially able to tinker things and fix them.
as a side effect, you are essentially tinkering the person back to 100%

Do the Nine know about us?

Do we have a list of the theme songs anywhere?

How much of a threat are we to the 9 in a one on one scenario?

Can we start a smear campaign against Colin by saying he's not a good tinker and gets by on stolen tech, using audio from the fight as proof?

Does anyone want to be our friend?

nah, not really, I just post them when i think it's appropriate.
for everything except crawler and Siberian you have a decent chance. but that's one on one.

Maybe, but you're a Villain who's never even fought an endbringer. while Armsmaster is on posters next to the triumvirate.
And it's fairly common knowledge among cape enthusiasts that if one tinker beats another, it almost always results in stolen tech.

Bonesaw and Mr Higgs, Kid Win and Taylor. other people are interested in you at best.

as for reactions to the second Armsmaster Fight.

Empire:Why does he only play around like that with the heroes? Oh no, Armsmaster's going nuts.

Merchants: He's great to watch when you're high.

Bakuda: "I'm a way better tinker than him, I know I am. Right Lee?" (Bakuda is curled up on a sofa eating raw cookie dough while saying this.)

S9: He doesn't kill enough.

Your character is essentially a mix between binary and Chaos tinkers. With the Construction methodology of a Field test tinker.

>>
>>2542228
Supporting this
>>
>>2542175
She probably thinks we are a horrible person for being so casual about taking that step.
Probably secretly really jealous.

The really trouble comes from Victoria, who was probably told about what happened and is low key hunting us down.
>>
>>2542257
She's probably relieved too, someone else that can take the some of the burden of her shoulders.

>>2542257

You know what they say

Our gas maybe
>>
>>2542231
she refuses to believe that you didn't have some sort of ulterior motive, from the second you were dubbed a villain, nothing could possibly have made her change her mind about you being an evil bastard.
This conflicts with parts of the second point.
She is externalising her self hatred and fear of going off the deep end onto you, and yet since hearing about how you helped one of the few she chooses not to. She can't help but feel a mix of extreme jealousy and crushing guilt.

What is pans deal, does she LIKE being mental or something? She makes spiderman look like a well adjusted adult.
>>
>>2542343
She's been conditioned from a young age to have an unhealthy obsession with her adoptive sister.

So part of it is her being a cunt naturally, and part of it is Gloryhole's power.
>>
>>2542343
Amy has had a very hard life.
>>
>>2542343
>>2542348
Think we can FIX her brain to not be crazy?
>>
>>2542312
Tinker went up to eight, your gas is pretty insane.
>>2542343
Her adoptive mother fears and as a result, neglects her. Her adoptive father slipped into a DEEP depression. and he was one of the few members of the family who actually loved her and treated her well.
Her actual father is the Villain named Marquis. who was known for turning people into bone trees.
She was Pavlov'd into being in love with her sister.
she has had a hard life.
And she is constantly told how dangerous her powers are.
>>
>>2542343
>What is pans deal
Trauma from seeing her daddy almost skewered by Brandish when she was 6
Then Being "adopted" by Brandish, who projects her distrust of her dad onto Panpan
Adding to that Flashbang is depression central and is mentally out of it most days and Glory Girl's aura making Panpan obsessed with her sister.
All of that combined with the stress from being known as THE healer when in reality her power is control of all biological matter she touches, making her potentially one of the most dangerous capes in the world makes for a boiling cauldron of issues.

Don't forget her birthday dummy. Just be a good person and trust that she will do the same.
Wait what am I saying? I don't even like Pan.
Nevermind fuck that ugly whore.
>>
>>2542293
We really should start an underground clinic to heal people. If only to see the look on Panaceas face and it would make it impossible for heroes to move against us.
>>
So what sort of tinker things should we have next?
>Card gun / duel disk that shoots inconel cards that may or may not be homing
>BANG! gun where the BANG! flag is actually a dart of ridiculously strong tranquilizer or whatever we choose to load it with
>Happy Zappers tinkered to be able to vary charge and either slightly static shock someone, or outright reduce them to molecular dust and ash
>Inconel sword/pocketknife/melee weapon that is easier to hold and wield than flat cards
>Lapel flower that sprays any liquid we load it with
>Special wire for healing purposes
>Chemical substance for healing extreme burns or surface damage
>Chemical substance that severely reduces whatever it comes into contact with, like bleach or chlorine but much much stronger
>Chemical substance that weakens molecular integrity of whatever it comes into contact with, enabling us to more easily break it or disrupt it
>Chemical substance deriving from containment foam, but causes objects to become elastic and bounce or repulse force
>>
>>2542522
Honestly, we'd probably have the best chance at healing Pan if she got fucked up enough. On short notice at least.
>>
I doubt it will happen but I kinda hope we get caught just so we can give a one bad day monologue. I'm quite fond of the one in Arkham origins.
>>
>>2542522
I like this idea. Being a part time medic and selling cheap meds as a side hussle was already something I wanted to push, but making a fully fledged clinic would not only be great for good boy points, but we have a steady stream of homeless smucks to experiment on if we need it.
>>
>>2542561
Wanna take Cauldron's market? I like it.
>>
>>2542561
I think one of the best uses during the Leviathan attack would be providing our cards and working with the medics
>>
>>2542561
I don't wanna be a good boy though. I kinda want to see us go off the deep end instead of trying to mill about in the middle and tinker all day. Although I'm not gonna lie, goofing off and heckling Armmaster and stealing his shit while doing it is a fucking riot.
>>
>>2542575
See if we go off the deep end we'll get lumped together in the same category as those pricks in the Slaughterhouse 9

And I'd rather us not, so tinkering all day, fucking with the ABB and Empire 88, and heckling Armmaster is basically my go-to plans until Bakuda.
>>
>>2542561
sounds nice
>>2542575
the middle thing is the best even if it tingles my inner moral fag.

>>2542561
Screw good-boy points. Wild card all the way.

>>2542572
Maybe we can be as good at damaging Endbringers as Flechette/Foil is, despite the fact that all Endbringers have a concentrated core of bullshitanium?

>>2542575
We just have to meme on everybody we meet or fight. No one will be exempt. Hero and villain alike will suffer the wild ride of parahuman Joker.
>>
>>2542585
Agreed, my number one goal in this quest is to brutally murder as many gangsters as possible, and bullying all the other "heroes" for being little shits.
>>
>>2542585
Good point. I guess sticking in the middle and just laughing at everything is the way to go. We really need more dialouge where we burst out laughing to unnerve people though.
>>2542601
>We just have to meme on everybody we meet or fight. No one will be exempt. Hero and villain alike will suffer the wild ride of parahuman Joker.
Then let's meme the fuck out of everything even our patients!
>>
>>2542575

Killing gangsters is nice, but we need money and materials to do the damage we need to put a real dent in their organization. Cheap Meds is one way to do it.
>>
>>2542638
Well fuck. That's actually a sound plan. We should probably set up our "clinic" somewhere distant from our HQ just to be safe. Or do we just secure the fuck out of HQ, not give a fuck, and work from there?
>>
>>2542561
Nah save the experimentation on the fools who break the rules or start a fight.

The rules for the Clinic
1 ALWAYS Listen to the Doctor
2 NO trouble
3 If you break a rule you just volunteered yourself for SCIENCE!

>>2542575
In that case we might as well join slaughterhouse 9.

>>2542601
Nah it's not being a good boy it's about protection and experimenting with our powers. We'll have all the test subjects we could ever want and the superheroes can only watch.

Not to mention make money.
>>
>>2542624
We're a mad man in a mad world and one of the few who might actually care about it. What's not to laugh at?

Don't you mean become the slaughterhouse?
Also fuck all this shit about helping people for "protection" and "money" and stuff, i said it before and i'll say it again,
i want to be the guy who does occasionally benevolent things rather than trying to do them all the time.
>>
>>2542659
>One of the few who might actually care about.
I like the idea that behind the violence and laughter, Manic genuinely wants to help the community, or at the very least wants to eradicate the shit that made his own life so trash.
We just like doing it the "fun" way.

School shooters are usually kids.

Seriously though, this clinic idea sucks.
>>
>>2542638
Exactly.

>>2542648
The problem is if we put too far away we'll encounter random events during transit and more importantly, the Superheroes will be a LOT more tempted to target us if they don't have to worry about civilians/publicity concerns. The villains don't have to worry about any of that.

I second this.

>>2542705
I like this idea more over the clinic idea other people are pushing. We just drive around looking for trouble or injured people, stop by, heal them up, drive off laughing. It could work.
>>
>>2542706
We can always sell super steroids to gym members or rob a bank cowboy style

How's about we act like we're robbing a bank, but when we get into the vault, we just leave a card for Armmaster in a pile of confetti and balloons or something?

Taylor and Barn are very similar all things considered. The difference is that we know how to have fun, and don't obsess over the ideal of being a hero.

Ok you just sold me on the clinic idea with that. A mobile, had to catch ghetto van that we occasional drive to offer cheap questionable heals to people sound like hilarity.
>>2542706
Why i'm mad at this idea is that it's adding regularity to a wild card character at the cost of FUN! If we want money we could just go rob a bank or do other fundraising stuff instead of relying on our medical skills.
And an other thing, why in the everloving fuck would any anon want MORE karma? Our best slick and what makes this quest so fun for me is that we morally confuse the heroes by doing good things as a horrible villain, but the entire moral conflict AND FUN is lost when we stop doing bad things to farm "Good-boy points" for whatever reason! How the hell are we supposed to be the Joker/Manic, the guy who will either lobotomize you or heal you at the flip of a coin, if we keep chasing good karma?
>>
>>2542678
This is the shit that I want I want The Manic to be doing. He may be a bit evil and demented, he may kill a few villains, and he may be a general immature ass but at his heart, behind the white skin and teeth, he is still Barnaby Campbell, a kid who loves his mom and little brother and wanted to be a hero.

Fuck yeah, just need less meta trying to be edgy on purpose or being the joker so much.

>>2542765
I really like that take on him. Good show, anon.
>>
>>2542752
The Manic doesn't give a fuck about heroic ideals, he just does what he deems right/beneficial. Fuck heroic ideals, we've thrown that to the wind so far and we've done a better job at it than anybody else
>>
>>2542769
We only just recently got those friends man.
>>2542770
I'm sorry, it's just that i've seen too many promising villain quests go down the shitter of Noblebright anti-hero. And this quest is really really great, the most fun i've had recently with a quest, so i'm kinda on a hair trigger on anything that raises alarms in my head.
>>2542771
This is exactly what i want to be, no Clinic, just a guy wandering around letting life lead him to what he should be today. A healer? A villain? A hero? A sociopath? A guy looking for a meal?

>>
>>2542775
What we NEED is to murder more gangsters with laughing gas.
I think the main idea we need to take away is the idea of the "Pure and True Hero" doesn't exist in this world, so why should we try?
"Fun" is finding new and exciting ways to exterminate and piss of people we don't like.
If we keep doing that, the side details can fill themselves out as we keep moving forward.

I disagree, those aren't the main reasons why Manic does things, he does things for fun! For his own happiness and satisfaction cause he's still a bit of a kid.

It's 53's and to be honest I don't see why not.

Our powerset is, frankly, bullshit.

If anyone can cobble together a humanoid body that still let's them use some variation of their powers it's either us, Bonesaw, or Panacea.

Frankly they'd be better off jumping off a cliff than relying on those other two trainwrecks, we'll at least be willing to try without those pesky 'morals' and 'murder fetishes'.
>>
>>2542813
Killing for killing sake is lame S9 garbage. I have no problem killing if they come at us lethally first. We react. We escalate. But we don't provoke. Too busy doing our own thing. The good stuff we do is usually just to dick with another cape. Occasionally it's for good reason or we make some cash.
>>
>>2542822
Because i think anons naturally gravitate towards moralfraggotry, this great quest won't be fun for me anymore anymore if we turn into another anti-hero.
>>
>>2542839
I also don't want to play the Joker 100% straight, because he's an unfun edgy faggot. Being an anti-hero is shit, but it's better than being a "hero" or straight up villain in the Wormverse

Also I don't think we're an anti-hero, we attack the gangs because they fucked us up, not because it's the right thing to do
>>
>>2542838
>Killing for killing sake
"Killing for killling sake" is going on a rampage through the city.
There is nothing wrong with hunting killing gangsters, and if you think there is something wrong with that then you are missing the point of the character.
I will agree that we should stay on the defensive for now, but once we get all of our shit up and running then it's the war starts.
>>
>>2542844
We have to think by Wormverse logic and rules. No going full unfun edgelord, no going full unfun moralfag. We help random people when we feel like it, but we also murder random people when we feel like it, barring special cases for both like the girl healing. This way we stick to our Chaotic Neutral swiss-army 0 Karma, while also becoming a walking meme.

I don't want to get caught up on the 0 karma thing either desu.
We have goals.
1) Making cool tech
2) Using it to kill assholes
3) Using it to bully "heroes"
Perfect neutrality is more of a guiding light than a set goal, but I like your meme moxy.
>>
>>2542838
>Killing for killing sake is lame S9 garbage.
I disagree, this is exactly what i'm talking about when i say i've seen promising villain quests go shit before, it's this idea that we shouldn't go out and be a villain and just stay passive. It's not as if i want to be an edgefag but it always starts with this talk about how we should be "Practical" or we shouldn't chase after trouble and just react if it comes to us.
it keeps happening and it's why i don't enjoy quests anymore besides one that's been in a hiatus for more than a year.
>>2542844
>Being an anti-hero is shit, but it's better than being a "hero" or straight up villain in the Wormverse
It's really not, i don't know much about the wormverse but anti-hero protagonists suck in every quest i've read.
>Also I don't think we're an anti-hero, we attack the gangs because they fucked us up, not because it's the right thing to do
I know and i love it but i'm really afraid for when that stops and we start doing it cause they're bad people or some shit.

Don't worry I'm against us doing it because "they're bad people" too. I just don't want to go full villain because that's boring.

Thanks. I want to make cool tech too, see >>2542530

>>2542874
Definitely frothing at the mouth if only he knew.
>>
>>2542883

Because doing crime (unless it's a mob drama) doesn't appeal to me, and if Manic went full villain, he'd literally become the Joker in full, and I don't like the Joker.
>>
Would killimg gangs cause they fucked us be against the people nitpicking?
cause i've wanted to vendetta the fuck outa the ABB since they took our arm off
>>
>>2542883
The motivation is always ass. The character always devolves into lolsorandumb evul.
>>
>>2542889
Vendettaing the ABB is perfectly justified, I think.
>>
>>2542889
Oh I'm fine killing anyone who doesn't come correct when dealing with us. Coil is fair game because we know he was going to try and backstab us. ABB is fair game because they tried to organ harvest us. 88 is fine because they tried to forcibly recruit us. All of them also have no problem with trying to kill us so it's fair that we respond in kind.
>>
>>2542887
>So you want us to actively seek out action and people to kill or meme on?
Occasionally yes cause the alternative is going down the slippery slope of all other cape quests, anti-hero that doesn't kill or have actual fun.
It keeps happening. it just keeps happening.
>>2542888
I understand the Joker part but the crime i don't, why would doing crime not be fun for you?
>>2542892
I'd rather have lolsorandumb evil now, i haven't seen one in a while and it would be refreshing.
>>
>>2542911

Because The Godfather and Goodfellas is patrician and anything less is plebian.
>>
>>2542889
Our lives has been significantly made worse by living an a area ravaged by all 3 gangs.
We have seen what they can do and have done, and even experienced it first hand.
Even if the vendetta is only personal in regards to the ABB, lets not forget that the EE88 has also attacked us, and that ALL gangs are responsible for the state of the city.
There is no reason for us NOT to go after them all.

We should totally kill coil.

What I like about Manic is how different he is from pretty much every character we meet. He's just this weird asshole that can do what he wants most of the time, and so far he hasn't been a dick about it. In Worm. Where everyone's a dick.

He wants to have fun but still has empathy. Usually, characters like these just go full insane hedonistic, or some bullshit about how everything is chaos and they're just "showing the world its true form" or whatever.

Manic's a lonely 16-year-old, that's lost a lot but isn't off the deep end yet. He doesn't have some grand plan or some bullshit, he's just trying to have fun.

IN WORM. WHERE FUCKING NOTHING IS FUN.

That could change in the future I guess, but I hope we don't just go full edge or full bleeding heart. The character's interesting in this universe as he is, him fucking around is entertaining to read. I hope it keeps being like that.

Worm hates fun, it takes fun and eats if for breakfast, then shits it out for before lunch.
Manic is the one person that has fun and can get away with it.
I'm sure if this was from Taylor perspective like the Novel, we would be written of as a crazy maniac so whatever.
>>
>>2542946
Yeah, if this were actually written like Worm, we'd be like that ultrahedonist I described, someone to be pitied and hated, which would leave the implication that you shouldn't have fun.

>>
>>2543152
The molecule cutting is our power. Who knows if regular Inconel has that same property? Giving it a try would still be worth it, but I feel like working with Flechette during Leviathan attack could lead to us killing Leviathan right there on the spot. If all goes well.

This is pretty off topic, but I was wondering if anyone else who reads quests doesn't like the waifufaggotry that seems to plague every other semi-decent quest. What I mean by waifufaggotry is that i often see people very interested in the plot of a quest, but as soon as potential romantic interests are brought in, the focus isnt on the plot and what makes sense for the MC, but instead on how to best get bestgirl X Y or Z.
>>
>>2543561
Yes. Its why a QM needs to have a firm leash on the players, or choose a setting where almost the waifus are pretty terrible choices (Like Worm).

I vote we perform surgery on the entire ABB to turn them into pasty white dough bois then turn the E88 into Blacks and Asians.

Nah, the problem is your limiting yourself to /females/.

Yikes, hope you get well soon

You wake on the Tuesday morning, having taken the rest of the day off yesterday to chill and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Namely, stolen TV. Which you now find yourself flicking through in hopes of some early morning entertainment.

"You dont know m-announcement of Giggleswitch's official Deb-And then you pour in as much wine-Endbringer Predictions, well Professor? What are we thinking?"

That gets your attention, so you watch a bunch of masked Thinkers debate what city is destined for annihilation next. Somewhere coastal huh? well that sure narrows it down.
Time to decide what you'll do this fine morning.

[Trickster's Cane]
This is a metal cane with an outer shell made of the same metal as your cards but smooth instead of sharp(obviously) it doesn't cut through things in the same way. Instead it softens whatever it hits and deforms it.
The cane also contains a directional electromagnet that allows you to recall your cards after they've been thrown, or technically anything magnetic enough for the beam to affect.

Still sticking with my long term goal but we should break open that arm while we have it
>>
>>2543649
It shouldn't be a perfect copy though. We should add something to it.

For instance, every time the arm is used to punch something there is a random chance that the arm will play a Tommy Wiseau quote at a volume of 80 decibels.

Curled up into a ball on the floor head throbbing with pure agony, you come to realise that you're going to need more aspirin for this. It started off well enough, just open the outer casing and see what's inside, then study and disassemble the components. But the truth of the matter became apparent when you actually got a look at the inside of the arm. None of it is possible, there is more matter inside the construction than there is room for it, and it feels like staring into a non-euclidean hellspace.

+10 ???

You have to do something else, anything else.
