Last Time on Worm Quest: You Stole Armsmaster's arm again, and stole the Undersiders from Coil. You then found out that fanboys had been marking territory in your name.What is this: A Wormverse version of the Joker. With Tinker and Mover Powers. The universe is based on a Web serial about superheroes full of grimdark and sadness. The main character is essentially a person who is capable of experiencing fun and not immediately being punished by the universe, mostly due to incredible dice rolls. We had eight crit successes in the first thread alone.How does it work?: D20's mostly, I keep a list of modifiers and stats on my computer. You have three actions a day and can do things.Description of main character so those who are new don't immediately assume we're going full edge: 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.

It is Wednesday morning in Brockton Bay, and like always you wake up incredibly early.

>>2545421>Ever having sex
>>2545417shit like this is why we were a friendless loser with no GF a week and a half agohell we only just started making friends and they're mostly criminals
>>2545429I thought that was because we were bullied and our parents didn't love us or eachother.
>>2545375Tbqh I'd rather just blueball her.Because having the guy your power doesn't work on and is totally available be completely uninterested is hilarious
>>2545459Well I mean mostly that, but also sort of this
Honest question, atm is Armsy that closest thing we have to a Batman to our Joker?
>>2545474You tell me, he actually is the Batman expy of this setting.
>>2545474That's how it will startBut he clearly can't handle us, so when he breaks I think it's gonna end up being Taylor later on.
>>2545489The question is can we break him before canon events do it for us?
>>2545414We have [the Project] to potentially Harley
I see taylor joining us and our bat rival probably being that new ward the smiley dude.
>>2545474I guess you could say he's our foil but no one has really captured our heart. There's been no one who we see ourselves in.https://youtu.be/Ta-4Po7VoWUI fear we'll never find that person who'll catch us when we jump.
>>2545494At the pace we're going, Yes we can.
>>2545503I say we steal a few more arms, weild them together into a statue, than send it to his home address after we find out his secret identity
>>2545509He doesn't really have a secret identity, he's a full time hero
Daily reminder: our one true weakness is Bruce, if our enemies ever find out about him they’ll kidnap him and have ol Manic by the balls
>>2545498>I fear we'll never find that person who'll catch us when we jump.And considering what the description of this setting is I'm afraid we never will and that makes me sad.>>2545496We definitely need to see how's she doing. Maybe she can join us as Harley. That brain surgery was probably to make her fall madly in love with us obviously.
>>2545496The idea of a Harley with disintegration powers is pretty terrifying.
>>2545516Really? I thought the web novel said it was unknown even though he was a full time hero. I just started reading though so all I really know is that we just need to steal enough arms to make a statue of our face and send it to the ArmMaster
>>2545518She's 24 and we're 16 man. Disintegration powers or not we'll still be the victim of rape in the eyes of the law
>>2545527He does have a real face/life but he's in costume almost 24/7
>>2545401 : 18One of the ideas that's been bumping around inside your head for a while now is what exactly caused you to mutate, why do you now find yourself with white skin and green hair? So you read up on genetics and gene structures, most of it goes over your head but you have enough of an idea how it works to get your Power in gear, letting go and allowing it to design you some stuff that might give you an answer.Twenty minutes later, you find yourself with the blueprints to a computer of some kind, with space for a human being to be placed inside an attached vat. The vat also will contain lots of needles and saws. All made of your Inconel Alloy.Tinker Upgrade: Gene Bay.to be constructed.After exiting your research room(A bunch of whiteboards and beanbag chairs) you find your new cape buddies lounging around your main room, watching TV and shooting the shit. They also aren't wearing their costumes anymore, having swapped them out for more comfortable "civvy" clothes.Grue is a tall and muscular black guy, named Brian now that you're on speaking terms. wearing a skintight top and cargo pantsRegent is actually called Alec, and he's wearing a white shirt with jeans.Bitch is Rachel, and all she did is take off her mask.

>>2545560Building the gene machine would probably satisfy it
>>2545560We probably start making stuff out of our surroundings
>>2545563Yeah easy to miss considering we did the entire thing with hopes of getting an OC waifu because every other one was shit
>>2545538>Construct the Gene BayI cant wait to toss random shit into this and see what happens.
>>2545538Construct the gene bay.Zion said rush so let's rush. We can delegate some stuff to the Undersiders. Like arm stealing.
>>2545538>Track down the people marking territory
Gene Bay construction locked in.Any non-Tinkering actions you want to delegate to the others?
>>2545574Do you really thing thpse chuckle fucks are capable of arm stealing?
>>2545581Getting food and Resources.
We should probably build the undersiders bed rooms eventually.
>>2545581Grocery shoppingAlso stealing a fridge if we don't have one. Im tired of going out everytime we need a meal.
>>2545581Can we get Bitch to help walk our dog?
>>2545581Delegate figuring out who is tagging to TatsFinding a suitable site for a dog shelter to Rachel (as well as introducing her to Bruce)Food and games to Brian and Alec (board games, we will turn the electronic systems into parts)
>>2545583Easy, have tattletale find out ArmMaster's scheduleGet Greu to use his darkness creation to null all of his sensesGet Bitch to assault him with dogs while he's downAnd regent will run in and steal his armEasy peasy lemon squeezy
>>2545581>Track down the people marking territory
>>2545581Stealing armmaster's arm
>>2545583That's the test. If they fail they go into our newly constructed gene bay.
>>2545581>>2545585"And remember, I specifically want the bulgogi kebab from Korean-American-Iraqi food truck, NOT the "fusion Korean-style beef doner" from the Japanese-Turkish food truck, got it?"Grue blinks, nonplussed, and opens his mouth to ask what the hell the difference is."And I will stitch your mouth together if you ask me what the difference between the two is, this I swear by Arm-Master's mechanical arm."Grue closes his mouth shut.

>>2545597Supporting, can we heal people in the gene tank like a healing pod or something. Get us some support from the public or rent it out to (Shady) People.
>>2545669I'd rather develop Venom, and then use it on willing volunteers
>>2545675Handing out Brute Powers like its chump change to future henchmen and womenMan people are gonna lose their shit if that happens.
>>2545678Super powered brutes roaming the streets, helping old ladies cross the street
>>2545678>This but intelligent, and can follow orders
Rolled 9 (1d20)>let's see what happens when we ask then to bring a hotdog to us.
We might need a contingency plan for the scenario that coil does capture us, or steals our shit. Don't fancy him succeeding and torturing/raping us (Hes done it before) or figuring out who our loved ones are and using them against us.Maybe a nuke in our chest as contingency?
>>2545693>it'd probably be a fail and goddamn armmaster of all people would show up.that's okay.
>>2545682Gotta do random acts of kindness. I wanna see the part where we rob a bank and then rush over to shoot someone who pushed a kid over in panic and say, "Hey fuck you. Children are the future." Then we hand the kid a wad of hundreds. Or we can walk grandmas across the street. That helps too.
>>2545702A grenade up our ass is a good and cheap contingency plan
>>2545706I thought we were robbing criminals, not banks. banks are boring.
>>2545702Our contingency is "SmileX the fucking ocean"
>>2545702Bomb inside one of our captured goons.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mwluvtQOX_4
>>2545710>hey coil, I think I'm feeling a little gassy!Than he does of laughter
>>2545678Not gonna lie: I might reconsider my stance on tattletale if she ends up a musclegril.
>>2545711I don't know why people keep saying robbing banks.The REAL plan is going to a gang hideout and killing everyone inside.
>>2545711criminals use banks to do.money laundry anon. We are hitting the gangs right were it hurts. On their pockets!
>>2545690Or we become this
>>2545710A vial of Smilex that once outside it's vial/canister becomes gas and that we can safely smuggle or puke out of ourelfs could be it to.
>>2545724>Not just attacking random gangsters on the street and stealing the cash they have on themStep up your game bro
>>2545733Or we just have a system rigged so that when we die a SmileX bomb goes off
>>2545738Nah man that's the dumb move. Im pretty sure we can find a bank that the bigger meaner gangs use and grab all that dosh to ourselfs or burn it whatever we want to really.
>>2545746We could hit one of their HQ's, they probably have a safe somewhere
For everyone that has Tats as a waifu know that coil had timelines where he Raped and/or Tortured the shit out of her while just having a talk in the other timeline.He's done such bad things to your waifu, you should reeeely focus on killing coil.
>>2545746>Nah man that's the dumb move.At least it's fun dumbRobbing banks is literally the most basic bitch move you can do.They don't even keep big money in the banks.We are better off taking on gangs directly
>>2545773Yeah most money is digital anyways
>>2545754Bad things that didn't really happen
>>2545754do people waifu here? it seems to a consensus that all the girls are shit or something. This cyoa is my introduction to worm so im not the most knowledgeable
>>2545779Nah man, we're a lonely 16 year old without a GF in a world where every "waifu" is utter shit to the point we saved a woman's life in order to waifu her only to find out she's 24
>>2545779People will try regardless, doesn't matter if they're shit or not.Best we can do is steer clear of the worst of the worst.
>>2545754No one care about waifuing Tats bro, so you can put down your white knight blade and take a load off. We'll get to killing Coil when we get there damn it.>>2545779Also Waifus are shit, but our choice might make them less shit. The General Consensus however is it's a waste of time to try, so don't bother and hope for Harley to show up Or to get a nat 20 on a Char roll just like the Joker did.
>>2545773>Robbing banks is literally the most basic bitch move you can do.That's because you don't make it fun.Didn't one anon propose we rob a bank merely so we can leave a Armsmaster arm behind for when he comes to stop us? That's a fun bank robbery.
>>2545793Harley Quinn will probably be one of the ones spraypainting our territory
>>2545795That was me and yeah, we "Rob" a bank just so we can set up confetti cannons and a replica arm for Colin.
>>2545795Eh, that's like playing a nuzlock in pokemon. The only reason there's a challenge is due to self-imposed rules.We need a fun way to make money. For some reason, my mind keeps going to a casino.
>>2545793just baiting for waifu people fishman. Almost everyone is shit in worm.
Having never actually read worm, but have learned thing via osmosis or fanfics, what actually triggers Leviathan attacking the Bay and is there anything we can do to avoid it from attacking etc or should we bail if that shit happens?
>>2545804Eidolon being worst boy triggers all the endbringers
>>2545804thought it was the Travellers being in brockton bay that drew in big fish, due to the Simurgh fuckery.
>>2545804He probably goes to Brockton Bay for Noelle but there's a chance he's just coming for fun
>>2545795Ok this Armsmaster meme is getting outta hand.We got shit to do other than worry about fucking armsmaster's arms.Like the gangsters knocking on our door, or fucking Coil breathing down our neck.We are not robbing banks for the lols, when we can murder a dozen gang members instead.You know, something both fun AND productive.
>>2545795Another fun bank prank is breaking in so we can replace all the money with monopoly money.
>>2545809They do have good hotdogs I hear.
>>2545812Manic wouldn't know.
>>2545789So no waifuing Pan-Pan-chan?
>>2545813Ravioli is bae, hotdogs are cursed, probably cause of Contessa.
>>2545799>Armsmaster is defusing a Manic IED>Cuts the wrong wire>A "Bang" flag pops out of it>Confetti gets everywhere
>>2545810But we already murdered some gang members. And the gangsters haven't been knocking on our door since thread 1.
>>2545816ArmMaster: *rubs temple* 3rd time this god damn week
>>2545820So i guess we need to organize our gang and keep our territory safe? Uh wonder how that happend.
>>2545810You are going to cut yourself with that edge. Gangsters are literally a non-issue, killing them would just give the heroes more charges against us.
>>2545824At least last time we bumped into eah other we managed to make him losen up a bit with a good laugh.
>All heroes catch wind of Manic's new city wide plot.>ohshit.jpg>Spend countless hours interrogating thugs and members of our own gang to no avail.>The day arrives and all heroes are shitting themselves.>Turns out the plan was to just hire all hot dog stands and have them sell at HQ for a big party so no one else in the city could get a hot dog.
>>2545820>But we already murdered some gang membersLike TwoAnd just cause they haven't made a move YET doesn't mean they aren't planning too, which they are in cause you forgot.and besides you can never kill enough gang members. If we can run into armsmaster like 4 times and deal with him on accident, we can stand to kill a couple dozen more super villains.
>>2545835If we kill, we're going to get killed. It's the rules of The Game
>>2545829If we keep bumble fucking into them everytime we go outside to get a meal, they'll be after us anyway. Might as well get some work done before then.
After passing out some hello's and instructions to your new superfriends, you head into your workshop and start tinkering.You fall down into the trance and watch as your body moves without you, nimble fingers weaving Alloys and circuitry into the right shapes and sizes before mingling them together perfectly. By the time you're done several interior walls actually had to be knocked down due to it being way bigger than you'd expected, Way fucking bigger.The finished project is almost up to the roof and the terminal screen is also huge.The bay consists of two parts, a large tank roughly four metres tall and three wide attached to some sort of huge supercomputer. Seriously, it takes up literally the entire room that you started building it in.In the end, your power had to get Bitch and her dogs to help you drag more metal into the Inconel printer.Once the machine is done, you step into the tank and give yourself a good scan tank before booting the machine up, time to see what all this bullshit is about.The results are somewhat uh, terrifying.Your genetics are all over the place, your actual DNA is so fragmented and busted that you are completely incapable of cell replication, so far the only thing keeping you from falling apart leper style is some sort of pulse that goes through your body every couple of seconds. the pulse itself repairs your cells and repairs damage to make up for the lack of cell replication. Thing is it's also changing you by taking the fragmented cells and replacing their genetic structures with something else.Far scarier is how Right your power tells you the final product will be.??? is Genetic Fragmentation.Maybe you can reverse some of the effects with the Gene Bay, but you're far more likely to do yourself irreparable damage, or even accelerate the process.Shit. You're laughing again.Well, what's your plan now?Barnaby/Manic/Status:Not OK[Need] 0/20[Gene Fragmentation]10/60Karma:7Money: 142 DollarsCurrent power Understanding: Superhuman Gymnast and Tinker powers.

>>2545847>Explore the CityIf we run into fucking Armsmaster i'll scream.
alright, voting is over.Researching your Fucked Genetics.Would you like to ask Tats for help?YN

>>2545896>Yeh, might as well.
>>2545896>YChicks dig a guy that is about to die. That might get us some petty points from her.
>>2545886B-But we have so many more pranks to do. So many more people to meme.
>>2545915So many more arms to steal
>>2545915>>2545921So many horrible puns to make
>>2545933What a contrarian, I like that.
Hey tattletale, I know we've only been friends for less than a day, but I'm simultaneously dying and not. wtf?writing
>>2545941"Bae, use your thinker magic shit and help a brother out!""...I don't really have a choice on this do I?""...sing to me the song of your people!""No choice."
>>2545941What's the cloth part of our clothes made of
>>2545957I remember it being a combination of cloth and the super metal our cards are made of?
>>2545949"Bae, use your thinker magic shit and help a brother out!""...I don't really have a choice on this do I?""Technicaly if you don't agree you are still making a choice so. Yes, you do have a choice."
At first you decide to give it a go on your own, but whenever you try and use your power to figure it out the answer is just."It's all good bruh, just let it happen."So you decide to drop this really heavy shit on Tattletale and see what she can do with it."Hey uh Lisa, when you can come to a stop. Can you come into the Gene Lab and talk to me for a second?

AlrightWhen I say Villainy, I specifically mean targeting innocents or Heroes.Any action that target's a criminal is Heroism as long as it's generally non-Lethal
>>2546047>Go perform Heroic acts
Come on guys we need to rob a bank and put armaster hand with a bow wrapped and spouts confetti on palm. And if he ever attach it to his arm make some jerking motion like he is masturbating whenever there are 5 or more people in front of him.

>>2546081So is robbing a bank targeting innocents?
>>2546081> as it's generally non-LethalSounds like thats why people are saying its villainy..cause kill kill kill
>>2546088By people i mean gangsters.Don't go murdering random people in the street.
>>2546047>>2546067Changing this to heroics then. Steal shit from criminals and all that
>>2546081Well the consensus seems to be robbing gangsters (read nazis) so I guess most of the "crime" votes are heroism?
>>2546091Depends we can always target one of the banks the mafia use to store their ill gotten gains or some place were they use to laundry their money.
>>2546087I don't think he needs to, attacking those other hardcore criminals is heroic.>>2546091I mean probably yeah. Unless we just show up to bully people and take another arm. Speaking of which we need to start stealing other stuff, we're probably getting predictable with all this arm stealing.
Alright, seems like you're about.Stealing from thieves.
>>2546100Nah want to lower the karma score a bit. We been too nice recently and I’d like to just cause some mayhem for a bit ya know?
Wait I just realized. If we fix our gene problems and the pulse still happens...does that mean we get actual regen powers?
>>2546102Like his other arm? Or one of his legs?
>>2546095Then you should vote for heroism. Since villany seem to involve more harning innocent people. Ironicaly the only time we hurt civilians was because the capes didn't leave us alone.
Normally you could ask Tats to point you towards something. but since she's indisposed you'll just have to wing it.Who are you bringing and who are you leaving behind?You'll definitely be leaving Lisa behind

>>2546111Everyone but Lisa.
>>2546104Steal all of the merchants drugs pin it on either the asians or the Nazis watch them go to war and lower our karma and then while that's happening loot their shit and pin it on cool =v

>>2546111Bitch, Grue and us. Leave regent to watch over Toots.
>>2546111[The Project] gets out of master prison tomorrow, right?
>>2546110As far as i'm concerned innocent people getting in the way isn't an issueIf they get caught in to cross fire then that's one thing, but they are not our target. I would also think heroism involves not killing them, which is a problem.
>>2546111Just take grue, if collin attacks they're gonna need a lot of help against his mercs
>>2546111Bitch and Grue
>>2546116Got it. I thought we'd get deadpool regen because currently it's focused on us not falling apart.>>2546119Guess we gotta rescue her and recruit her. Our random spasms of generosity don't come free. Well they do but then we charge.

>>2546122Oh yeah Coillingus is a problem maybe we should leave Bitch and give regent the button to drop the chems in the bay.
REMINDER TO EVERYONE HERE:Armsmaster does count as a "hero" for the purposes of the Commit Villainous Acts option. So do the Wards, random innocents, and various other heroes.DNA damage being repaired is what causes our mutations, which can and does also happen in real life, though not to this ridiculous scale.The most common form of DNA damage IRL is UV radiation.Those moles you get on your skin? Melanocytes - cell that produce melanin.The reason why your body gets a tan after sunbathing? Melanin reflects UV radiation, and serves to mitigate UV damage.What happens when you have mutation in your melanocytes? Skin cancer!Better break out that sunscreen, eh boys?

The first indication that something might be wrong with your plan of walking into Empire territory is the fifty calibre round passing neatly through the middle of your neck. Sending you flying a good five feet backwards into air against a wall.Fuck, you can't see where it came from either, in the movies there's always a glint or something off the scope.[Victor OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s43yLMgXXOU]But not now, you pull yourself behind the wall as you hear two more cracks, puffs of smoke breaking off bits of brickwork around Grue as he takes cover against a car.You're on a three way intersection, there is a large apartment building in front of you.

Grue and Bitch aren't panicking, which is to be commended. Grue(being the edgiest boy in a five mile radius) subsumes the area around you in darkness, with a pocket in the middle for you to see. Then they he hurries over to you while Bitch and her dogs keep watch and occasionally make loud noises to draw the sniper's fire."Shit Boss, you still alive?"You nod at him as you pull out your knife and a card, ready to get some tinkering done. You're way too cool to die.You try to make a quick joke and relieve them a bit, but that's difficult with a massive bullet wound in your throat.

Alright, so Genetic instability it is thenAll penalties for extreme failure have doubled.they will continue to double whenever you get close enough to die.This is going to be pretty bad, you don't have anything you can use to stick your throat back together. You panic for a second before your Power helpfully provides a solution. If you accelerate your Body's regeneration it might heal you fast enough for you to not die.Unfortunately once you allow your powers to take over, it turns out that you'll do that by poking your brain with your Happy Zappers. It's excruciatingly painful and takes longer than you'd like, taking nearly a full half a minute to fix your throat.After fixing yourself you feel your body, it's not good. Every part of your body is in pain and you feel like you're going to vomit.But that's somewhat by the white hot Fury burning through you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcinzmfZeCcTime to get to work.Barnaby/ManicStatus:Not OK[Need] 0/20[Gene Fragmentation]55/60Karma:5Money: 92 DollarsCurrent power Understanding: Superhuman Gymnast and Tinker powers.

>>2546737This:>>2546742Explain to then that's VERY important to not open the package and once they deliver it they need to run away!
>>2546762Also this >>2546765 >>2546742
>>2546763If he writes more it will take more time to post. Beside i think if anything is wrong will tell us and our group is used to kill gangsters so this is fine. I mean the guy shot us and would have killed our friends.
>>2546737Just to make sure, but the "gift" also has the "non-lethal" gas trap right?
>>2546763Bitch: He tried to kill me so fuck himGrue: I'm black, he's a Nazi, he tried to kill me and would have killed me for kicks any other time so fuck himRegent: A Jack in the box? Man this guy is crazy. Then again it /is/ pretty funny.Tattletale: Ookay, This guy is pretty fucking nuts. (Power) 'He's your only chance to stay alive and Coil is still hunting for you.' On the other hand this is /totally/ fine so I'm going to take another ten aspirin and have a nap.
Oh, Victor and Othala were one of the only few para relationship that somewhat worked. Eh, shucks.
>>2546785He played a stupid game and won a fucked up prize. I ain't gonna lose any sleep over it.
After waking in the morning you exit your room to find a somewhat uncomfortable looking gang, Tattletale and Regent in particular are sat next to your Present. They stop talking as you enter, and give you some rather serious Looks.Tattletale looks especially uncomfortable with the wrapped box, sitting as far away from it as possible. After you sit down and call the group together to get organised for the day, she clearly makes her mind up to ask some questions."So, I'm not questioning your leadership or anything. But are you okay boss, you looked kind of uh...""Demented". Regent fills in helpfully."That's not quite the word I'd use, but yeah. I mean you've gotta know that this will only escalate things right?"This is not quite what you expected this morning, you just wanted to address the whole "tagging" problem.You aren't out of touch with other people are you? You've heard that powers have weird mental stuff sometimes.Yeah, it's all good. Nothing wrong at all. You can't see anything wrong with mutilating a guyJustify your actions [HOW?]You can see why they'd be worried, maybe try and reassure them.Just move on to business, it's done now, and your homicidal rages are becoming less frequent. So it should be ok.
>>2546785Oh shit I just remembered Night and Fog*screams in 4 dimensions*
>>2546783We're gonna drive Tats to drug dependency aren't we.>>2546789>Yeah, it's all good. Nothing wrong at all. You can't see anything wrong with mutilating a guy who shot you in the throat.
>>2546789>He tried to kill me, so I returned the favor.
>Tell them you are working on ways to combat side effects of your power
>>2546791They still need to breathe
>>2546789>Achievements need trophies after all! Not everyday you can say "Boom! Headshot!">And why, Kaiser was just a good ol sport about the whole wallet thing!>I stole his wallet, he sent assassins!>Aaaahhhahahahaha
>>2546792>We're gonna drive Tats to drug dependency aren't we.Probably. Then again drinking away your troubles is better than dead. And if that doesn't work there's always shitposting to take the edge off.>>2546789>Justify your actions [HOW?]He shot me in the throat so I cut him in his, tit for, heh, tat. Besides we were always going to have to deal with them, this is just us pushing up the schedule a touch.But if you guys feel /that/ scared over it I'll be more than happy to hook you up with some new toys and clothes of your own.Or if you want a more, in depth, upgrade there's always the Gene Bay.Let me be clear boys and girls, we were always going to have to fight the big boys if we wanted to stay alive, this is just us telling them we're willing to play just as hard as they are.
>>2546789>You can't see anything wrong with mutilating a guyHe was a Nazi Gangster, let them try to push on us, we have more power than they think.
>>2546800I like this write up. I vote this.
>>2546789>Justify your actions [HOW?]OK, lets give some explanation to our powers. They work a lot on refles, thay are very automatic. The dementic laughter is an involuntary reaction to stress, having lobotomized Stormtiger and maimed Armsmaster? Also a reaction to fear. Then theres the time we went a little too far with our powers and turned us into this. So yeah, its a bit of a problem, we didn't exactly win the power lottery.
>>2546789>Yeah, it's all good. Nothing wrong at all. You can't see anything wrong with mutilating a guyFuck that guy Fuck the other gangsWe mean fucking business
>>2546789He. Shot. Me. In. The. Throat.Understand?He tried to kill me so he was killed himself. If you are prepared to kill someone you should be prepared to be killed yourself.
>>2546789Explain our powers and situation like >>2546805, but also explain clearly our feelings on all this like >>2546800
>>2546806Support.Trying to think of something Manic would say to reassure everyone, but just comes across as completely unhinged.Not having much luck unfortunately.
>>2546789>Justify your actions [HOW?]"Look it's like this." *Approach her and get into her personal space we are friends after all.* "That guy shot me and most likely would try to shoot Bitch and Grue. This will show not to mess with us and if the Nazi get picky and try to attack us we just need to make guerrilha with then. For now our gang is only made of us that's why i want to recruit some muscle and get ready to fuck up some Nazis. They need to learn not to shoot me or any of us." >You can see why they'd be worried, maybe try and reassure them.
Oh god if they drive us into a corner and we start laughing tattletale will just run away screaming won’t she? I kinda want that to happen now.
>>2546807I mean to be fair, we did go there to start some shit.Victor was completely justified. Not that it matters, death to all competition.Letting these scum live is just another moment you give them to plan against you
> Say that he didn’t he the joke
>>2546813>>2546812I like explaining some parts of our whole deal, like the laughing being stress and us being afraid and our powers being automatic and telling us "fucking up your genes is all good my dude". I mean, they all have problems and issues of their own to deal with, don't they?
seems like justification with a side of reassurment>>2546810this seems like two pretty good write ins to mix.writing.
>>2546816* didn’t get the joke
>>2546815And that woulda had water but he shot us in the throat. If we weren’t us we’d be dead.
>>2546789>Yeah, it's all good. Nothing wrong at all. You can't see anything wrong with mutilating a guy
>>2546805I like this one, supporting
>>2546824Yeah i guess your right, point is that it doesn't matter anyway.I thing that Urban Gorilla warfare is the best way to play this.If they try to attack us here, they are fuckedBut we don't really have the man power to wage open war, so instead we should do stuff like this, random attacks, unpredictable and wild.We run the risk of them all joining up to attack us, BUT we might be able to get the heroes involved to help if that what it leads to.
>>2546831I like the other anon's plan earlier to throw a "sun tan" bomb into an E88 rally
>>2546831We can always use the strategy of turning a street into a french treanch in a gas attack
Ehhh.> "Escalate the situation? No-no Tattletale, you misunderstand. I am DE-escalating the situation. Why, I've even personally cooked up a gift for Kaiser to make up for that whole lobotomization fiasco with Stormtiger."> Pat the present while smiling warmly
>>2546833Gorilla Warfare is a overarching plan of attack, not something on the todo list, we can defiantly attack a rally, but there is other things to be done as well.But yes the gas attack is a great idea.>>2546835More offensive action on our part is the goal here, Gorilla Warfare is how we achieve that goal.This means>Attacking random gang meet ups>Gas whole rallies of people>Hunting down villains that we know to be a problem when they least expect itShit like that.We should be like Murder Batman, harassing and wearing down these organizations and taking out their ranks chip by chip.
>>2546843Oh shit your rightGuerrilla warfare is the right spelling Either way my point is clear, the best way to handle this is to take our small groups and do mini operations.We don't have the time to build up a large force, the best thing to do is equip our team with the best gear possible and cause some mayhem.
Oh this could go badly, you've only got a few friends and now you've worried them. Guess honesty is the best solution, it usually helps at least.You consciously suppress your smile for the first time in a while, thinking of the best way to phrase what must come next."Look guys, there's something I've got to tell you. And it's about my powers. They're not like you guys, you get to choose when to use them, and you can turn them off when you don't want to do anything. Lobotomising Stormtiger was a reflex for me, cutting off Armsmaster's arm was like... blinking when somebody shouts in your face. It just happens. Me smiling and laughing isn't something I choose to do, it's my body's new reaction to stress. Even my Tinkering isn't voluntary, i do it by falling into a trance and watching as my body mixes stuff together.""What I'm trying to say is, sometimes I go into the trances and do terrible things. But even now honestly I think I'm in the right. That guy worked for an organisation who's end goal was the eradication of all races except their own. Even Villains are supposed to give you a chance to back down before the bullets start flying, but he just put a bullet in my throat. Then he went after Brian.""The Empire and the gangs have ruined so many lives, killed so many people. If I can stop them then I have to, no matter the cost. How many deaths would be prevented if Miss Militia put an Anti-Material round through Lung's head. Sure they're civilian deaths, but I don't think that makes them worth any less." "Besides, He's not even dead. Othala can put him back together in a jiffy."The others still look uncomfortable, and somewhat to your surprise it's Regent who speaks up next. A quiet sentence helping you truly understand the problem here."So how do we know it won't be our heads in the box next time you freak out?"Well?
I thought Victor had a Kill order? Or was that only hookwolf? Really the whole E88 should have kill orders but c'est la vie
>>2546843Let’s steal some animals from the zoo
>>2546850actually neither of them have kill orders yet. though hookwolf will be birdcaged if he gets caught.
>>2546849Will you be trying to kill me at all? If not then you have no worrries about ending up in a box! Unless your into that kinda thing in which case you need some help.
>>2546849>"So how do we know it won't be our heads in the box next time you freak out?"Easy! You don't try to kill me like some Nazi fuck and I won't try to kill you in turn. I act like everybody else until I'm pushed past my limits, and I only get pushed in times of great fear or stress.As long as you guys don't trap me or try to kill me then I won't attack you. See?It's not like I go off at the drop of a hat!And hell even when I /do/ get crazy I still know not to hurt my friends, I've never hurt bruce.
>>2546849If you look at the instances I just mentioned you might find a common theme. Me getting attacked. Don't attack me. Simple right?
>>2546849"I'll figure something out. But if I don't... well, feel free to try and stop me I guess."
>>2546855Exactly this. At worst we might accidentally gas someone unless they try and kill us.
>>2546849Backing >>2546856 and >>2546855, but also pet Bruce.
>>2546849I mean, I've only done it to people directly threatening my life. I honestly don't know though. Well there was that one other time, but that was to myself... So I doubt there's any guarantee of safety for y'all.If I start going crazy y'all theed to get the fuck out of my way, for your safety as much as mine.
>>2546849Oh come on that's silly.Are YOU guys trying to kill me? Trying to intentionally hurt people just for being born different, trying to force people that are just trying to live there lives into our gang, or better yet kid napping them and cutting them up for parts? We are a team here, and together we are gonna to terrible, beautiful, hilarious thingsI just need you to trust that I wouldn't put you in harms way on purpose.
>>2546857I mean we did throw ourselves into a vat of chemicals...
>>2546855going with this plz
>>2546860Supporting those as well
>>2546855> Y E S
>>2546855This workssimple and clean
>>2546860looking through the responses this seems like the best aggregation of the replies posted
So maybe I'm a little bit crazy, but is anyone down for the idea of hijacking a broadcast station, taking the staff hostage and singing songs with them while the gang robs a bank?
Manic's coming across way too sane and reasonable.> "Funny thing that. You don't. But why would you even want to? Predictability is anathema to comedy."
>>2546879I kinda wanna go for this, then back >>2546860
>>2546874Maybe do >>2546879 too?
>>2546875You are crazy, but it's the fun kind of crazy.I'm game.
>>2546879I like to think that the manic is somebody we are when out on the field, tinkering, and Fucking with ArmMaster while we're just a regular guy when we need to be, like when we're having serious discussions with the gang like right now
>>2546907Same here Anon.
>>2546907Well, our genetic structure is constantly breaking down, and is getting *worse* every day. For all we know we can go crazy on these guys and end up mutilating them.
>>2546911Maybe, but they don't know that and neither do we, not for sure anyway.Besides if we start breaking down that bad I doubt they'd stick around for the fallout.They're teenagers, but not idiots. They know how to run from a sinking ship, see Coil for example.
>>2546911Yeah, but should we really tell them that?
Tats will tell them when a good time to run is I’m sure.
>>2546916>>2546915It's clear that we're at least a little unstable, pretty much all of our actions up to this point follows a twisted logic only we really understand, and I think acting completely sane and reasonable, even if it is genuine in this moment, is probably more than a little unnerving for these guys in how fast we can just switch from one persona to another. I think a little honesty can't hurt too much in this context.
>>2546920Meh it’s gonna get a hell of a lot worse before getting even worse.
"Well why would you want to know? Predictability is anathema to comedy." Your first statement seems to only worry them more so you quickly try to recover. "Look, my trances don't just happen. I have to either get really scared and fucked up, or deliberately let myself fall into one while tinkering. Even then they're focused at whatever was screwing with me rather than just being directionless omnicidal rage, And you guys are the first real friends I've had in years."The gang seems much more understanding now, though still clearly uncomfortable with the Victor-in-a-box.Regent pipes up after a second, clearly having given the matter some thought."Fair enough. I guess being scared of someone because of something they might do is pretty hypocritical coming from us."In the end you finish off your impromptu team meeting with the others much less uncomfortable, but the atmosphere is still a bit chilly between you.Undersiders Relationship Changed: Terrified->Cautiously optimistic.Tattletale comes up to you after the meeting and talks through where the taggers are most likely to be. "It's a fairly good chance they'll try and tag where you fought Victor last night given how loud it was. We could also check areas you've frequented in the past and that haven't been done yet. What's the plan Boss?"Wait at the intersection where you fought Victor.Check out the other places you've been seen.Write in
>>2546925>Check out the other places you've been seen.So how scared was your power making you during that little intervention?Also make sure to get everyone away from me if you think I’m going to snap.
>>2546925>Check out the other places you've been seen.
>>2546925>Check out the other places you've been seen.Going back to where we fought Victor is just asking for a fight, and that would ruin the surprise.
>>2546925>check out other places we've been seenWho knows, maybe we'll run into that spray painter
>>2546925>Check out the other places you've been seen.>"So i'm tinkering with the idea of making you second in command. Thoughts about it?"
>>2546925>Check out the other places you've been seen."Going back to the scene of the crime, while devious, is something every criminal does at least once. And that would ruin the surprise, so we're going to check out any places other than THAT one."
>>2546925Check out the other places you've been seen.

You and Tattletale head out into the city, combing the industrial district for whoever it is that's been marking your territory. At first you have little luck, only finding updated tags(They appear to have gotten better designs) and empty spray cans. Eventually however, Lisa has a rather clever idea. The hot dog stand where you fought Armsmaster the second time. There's a huge wall in the square there and it's right on your border with the Empire.You head there via rooftop, dodging a few protectorate patrols on the way. As you head towards the square you can hear shouting and pull Tattletale into a bridal carry. Sprinting as fast as your mutated legs can carry you. When you reach the square you can see two distinct groups, a small mob of skinheads on one side hurling abuse, rocks and toting improvised weapons. Thirteen or fourteen in total.The other side consists of what you first assume are merchants before you get a look at their colours and masks. There are tow smaller teens holding spray paint cans accompanied by three adults, one of whom is clearly the leader considering his prominent position. The Teens are wearing very punk looking clothing, all skinny jeans and spikes on dark colours. They're being shielded by the older men, and hold no weapons except their fists. The two adults are wearing similar clothes but tougher looking and painted with bright neon colours. They are all wearing different variations of clown mask and are toying with wooden planks, pipes and brass knuckles.The leader is much better equipped, they are wearing some sort of armoured vest over a long trenchcoat and holding a pistol in each hand. With their mask completely blank apart from eye holes and an Ace of spades where the mouth should be. Their gear is better painted than the others as well, with a reoccurring card deck theme and neon green stripes with the occasional purple accent. They have long hair, dyed purple at the tips.The situation looks to be escalating, the Empire thugs are goading themselves into suicidal bravery while your adoring fans are hideously outmatched and staying completely silent but have multiple firearms.Swoop in and save the day with non lethal violenceThat's a lot of mooks, intimidation might be betterAdd more guns to the situation, that ought to helpWrite in

Does horrific maiming count as non-lethal provided the target doesn't die? We can limit the amount of fighting we have to do by fucking the first guy up really badly. It also has the added bonus of sending a really strong message.> Cuts off skinhead's nose with card> Manic catches it out of the air and begins twirling it between his fingers> "Got your nose"

>>2547033Right. Turns out that liberal amounts of ultra-violence can resolve any situation.
>>2547005That's probably worse all things considered. But that's also what I mean. The bank job never happened. Tattletale never revealed that Pans dad was a villian, which means she isn't in full on woe is me mode.And that's just one example. Taylor never joined the Undersiders.

The Empire mob is really starting to psych themselves up for the fight, so you decide it might be time to knock the wind out of their sails. You land on the mob's leader, Inconel reinforced faceplate slamming his head back into the pavement and breaking his nose with a sickly crack. A quick roll backwards and you find yourself staring down a much less enthusiastic group of thugs. "God, I thought he would catch me. The nerve of some people right?"The Civilian Brocktonites around you are crowding in now, Forming a rough circle around the two opposing gangs. You continue to be surprised at how utterly lacking in self preservation the people of this city are when it comes to capes.You put on your worst German accent and continue chewing the scenery. "ZE TRUE MASTER RACE VOULD ALVAYS KNOW OF INKOMING AERIAL ATTACK JESTERS!"This gets a round of laughs from the civilians around you, and cheers from the taggers behind you.The skinheads are really starting to freak out now, those at the back are trying to push their way out through the onlookers, but are pushed back into the circle by vindictive citizens.The leader of the taggers speaks up now, in a distinctly feminine voice with a very prominent southern accent. "Let's have some fun."Then she jumps forwards into the nearest thug and brings the barrel of her left pistol down on his head, knocking him senseless. Your other admirers roar and push forwards as well, beating on the thoroughly terrified gangsters with metal pipes and brass knuckles, the sounds of violence filling the air.You mostly step back and watch the carnage, only intervening when necessary to avoid injury to your[/] minions. One skinhead gets hand cut in two with a card, while another is spin kicked into oblivion.It helps that they're mostly too terrified to fight back, but your people are no slouches. Both are men, and they have builder's physiques. Large guts and arms that look like they belong on a gorilla. One of them takes a sledgehammer to the stomach and just keeps going.After a few minutes most of the skinheads are on the ground, but some of them managed to slip through the crowd and leg it back to wherever they came from.You take the opportunity to hand your present to one of the more conscious ones before letting him scarper off.Afterwards the leader turns to you, and immediately starts stammering all over the place."H-HI Th-th-th. Hey-"Maybe you should start with the speaky.So you guys are fans huh? Keep it lightheartedI wasn't aware that I had a gang. Serious modoWe should be off before the cops come, I know a place. Where?Write in

>>2547130>So you guys are fans huh? Keep it lightheartedAlso>We should be off before the cops come, I know a place. Where?Should take them back towards our turf, if not the base itself just yet.No reason to leave them out here in the cold with the Nazi's.
>Souther Accent. StammersGuh...guys!
>>2547130> So you guys are fans huh? That's hilarious. Keep it lighthearted
>>2547132>>2547134Need to move guys capes and police and other stuff. We did pass some protectoare patrols.
>>2547136>We found our girl bois!Maybe, all we know is that 'she' sounds feminine.In a city that has Circus and Regent in it that doesn't mean much.
>>2547141So? It might be fun to play a gay or at least bi male mc for once though.
>>2547130>We should be off before the cops come, I know a place. (Third favorite pizza place)>Write in: "Grab what ever guns and money we can from the dowed thugs we will need it."
>>2547140Pff, what are they gonna do? Shoot us?
>>2547130>We should be off before the cops come, I know a place. Where?Luigi's. One of the 'Big Three' Italian restaurants in the city, and like all good Italian restaurants owned and operated by the Familia. Its owner-chef is Giuseppe de Luca, formerly the head of the Familia, now enjoying a blissful retirement of shouting at European guests who do not tip and pinching beautiful waitresses' butts in between creating the best damned pizza in the entire region.Cape groups are city-blocks strong. The Familia is international.
>>2547138I know anon..we found her...we actualy found her!
>>2547141>Souther Accent.It's definetly her.
>>2547130Changing from >>2547145To >>2547152
Keep it light heartedCome have some pizza with me.writing.
>>2547130I would like to chanhe my vote and support this:>>2547152
>>2547152thisI know this is our harley, but lets not rush into anything juuust yet.I'm still holding out for a good non-trap husbando
>>2547163There is regent. But I doubt he’d go for it.
>>2547163>Batman x Joker shipping intensifies
>>2547166Is Armsmaster Manic's Batman?
>We're bringing our potential underlings to a pizzeria.We have to start reciting the Godfather Italian restaurant scene the minute we sit down. We have to!
>>2547163Jokes on your anon. We are the trap
>>2547171Fucking autocorrect. Turning that shit off now. Ruining my shitposts.
>>2547168Nope, just a joke.No one is good enough to be our rival.
>>2547168Hell no. He hasn’t been able to do anything to stop us.
>>2547174Oh we'll definitely get a worthy rival. It's really just a question of if the homosexual undertones turn into overtones. Or if its even a dude.
>>2547179Maybe Contessa could challenge us. Maybe.
>>2547168Nope because Batman never lost a arm to the Joker.
>>2547182I really hope we have the power to short out other people's powers when it comes to predicting us. So if she tries to "win" against us, she just gets overloaded with the amount of steps she needs to do or maybe the steps are just not physically possible to do? I dunno, I just really like the idea of being able to go "lol no." to bullshit powers.
>>2547193No please. We are already so strong that is almost unfair.
>>2547193Probably can since we ruined Tattletale. Our bullshit power trumps all other bullshit powers.
>>2547196As long as we can't beat Scion with laughable ease we aren't strong enough.
>>2547196Are we? I was never really good at gauging power levels. I just thought we get awesome rolls in the best of times. Our powers seem kind of weak compared to Coil or Contessa if we didn't have the no bullshit power.
>>2547202We have the dice gods' favour. The greatest power of all.
>>2547196we are a mad tinkerer in chems, genes, and machine, getting strong is a priority. although countering mind powers would be hard. especially with all the enemies we are making
>>2547204You fool! This is the way to nat 1s!
Honestly I'd prefer if GM just did away with scion and the endbringers as they always ruin the setting since inevitably all focus is directed them instead of interesting things l.
Oh I'm so happy you boys have found a girl(tats and bitch don't count). I hope this one doesn't have huge issues.
>>2547209I agree.From a story standpoint they don't offer much except for a Grimdark button.See that hope, nope it's dead now.Worm works great when you keep it street level, as we see here. It's only when you go higher that you start to get into Avengers level territory and then everything gets overshadowed by the continual crisis that just keep popping up.It's like comics basically, when you keep it real like Astro City then it's engaging, it's fun, you get invested.But once you start throwing around planet killers and destroyed universes and unkillable monsters like all the other comics the sense of scale is destroyed and your investment gets lost with it.What's one city compared to a world? What's one life compared to the species?
>>2547204You just killed us anon...
You look around at the decimated gangsters and breathe deeply, relishing the taste of victory. The taggers are looting the gangers and finishing off the cards and jester heads on the wall near the closed down food cart. All is well with the world.You turn to the now silent fangirl and decide to start talking. Maybe you can defuse the now incredibly awkward situation by talking."So you're the guys going around tagging the buildings right? it's good work."One of the Teenagers looks up and covers for the awkward badass."Well we do most of it, the guy who did the PRT building wasn't with us. Shame though, that guy was an actual artist. I can't believe he got grabbed.""Yeah, bad luck there right?" You turn back to the group and shout to Tattletale "Hey TATS! GET DOWN HERE, WE'RE GOING TO LUNCH!"This seems to shock your combat clown out of her awkward silence. "What?""I know this great little Italian place near the docks. We can talk there without getting interrupted.""ok"And so you're on your way.
>>2547222She is a Maniac fan and seems to be fangirling after we beat a bunch of thugs. I think she already has issues.
It really sucks how bad the waifus in BB are that our best options are Vista, Laserdream, or an OC.
>>2547209>>2547223I was actually considering changing the entities to being less like "We'll destroy the world." and more like just being amoral scientists collecting data.I'll need feedback on that though. Definitely keeping the endbringers though. I actually quite like them.
>"Well we do most of it, the guy who did the PRT building wasn't with us. Shame though, that guy was an actual artist. I can't believe he got grabbed."Time to plan a prison break?No artist should be holded by the law!
>>2547243Let's tinker a little then go get this guy
>>2547246definetly we still have those laser rifle batteries we can use for something.
>>2547237>I was actually considering changing the entities to being less like "We'll destroy the world." and more like just being amoral scientists collecting data.I like that. It means that you can actually /reason/ with Scion, provided you can talk with him and he's not so depressed he won't listen.It resolves the whole 'We've got to fight him now before he destroys the planet just to leave' issue, and makes it more 'we've got to get this asshole off our lawn before he fucks it up for everyone else.'
I just realized the reason we are hungry all the time is because our cells keep being destroyed and rebuild constantly.
Grimdark is a shit genre
>"Well we do most of it, the guy who did the PRT building wasn't with us. Shame though, that guy was an actual artist. I can't believe he got grabbed."We gotta save anon tagger guys! Maybe loot PRT for goodies.
>>2547237Meh, i liked the entities well enough
>>2547237 But are they beatable or the bs wildbow made them because no one should hurt his super speshul monsters?
>>2547255Agreed. Shame so many good writers are enamored by it.
>>2547237Nah, they are okay. The purpose of the antagonist is to be a challenge for the characters, if you know that the stakes and that defeat is a possibility then that makes discovering the solution even better. What I'm saying is, Scion and the Endbringers are pretty great.
>>2547255eh, if its done right it can be pretty enjoyable as long as its not edge city 24/7
>>2547237I'd say just take out the canon solutions and put up new ones for us to figure out in beating the endbringers and scion.
As long as the Author doesn't rely too much on human plot devices, I'm cool with it.
>>2547295Our power can sever molecular bonds, if we can make something "sharp" enough we could potentially kill an endbringer by "cutting" through them
OHH SHIT. WE ARE BECOMING AN ENDBRINGER.
>>2547317Imagine this but it can't be hurt, it's claws can cut through anything, and it can build whatever it needs whenever it needs(and potentially can make others like it)
After a quick walk over to your second favourite pizza place, you find yourself ordering some pasta and sitting across from the self-proclaimed Maniacs. Tattletale at your side.You're seated at a booth in the back of Luigi's. One of the waiters came and took your order almost as soon as you sat down, one of the advantages of coming in your combat gear. No one wants to be the waiter who walked past your table."So why are you guys going around and spraypainting my face everywhere anyway? I never said that I wanted to run anything."The five of them look a bit scared at the turn the conversation has taken, and turn as one to their leaderTheir masks are still on, but they aren't really trying to hide their body language from you."I uh, I had an idea. After word got out about what you did at the hospital, and how chill you were to heroes and us normals. I thought that we could scare off the gangs, by putting up gang signs that made them think you had taken over our neighbourhood. Then we got a couple of other guys and had them do the same thing. They have work though so they aren't with us all the time. It worked, so we kept doing it where you'd been seen. The other gangs are scared outta their minds about you, so once they were up no one took them down."huh.Your food arrives just as she finishes her explanation, giving you an excuse to sit and think through the situation.What other questions do you have?
>>2547255I prefer nobledark myself
>>2547317>OHH SHIT. WE ARE BECOMING AN ENDBRINGER.that's not a thing that happens anon
>>2547346Ah but where is the punchline? Is it just to protect what you have then what is there for me? Why should I let you continue this? Why would I not take a small measure of restitution from you for using my name like this?
>>2547346>What do you think would have happened if I hadn't shown up, though? Are you guys ready for a backlash, cuz gangs don't just disappear without a fight>Do you want to try my spaghetti? [Throw spoonful of spaghetti in her face]
>>2547346>If I did start a gang, would you like to be in on the ground floor>Favourite dog>Would you be willing to go out and get food for me>Who are you
>>2547356>>2547359Also adding>Favorite dog
>>2547346>what are all of your favorite dog breed>Wanna see my arm collection?>I take it the southern girl runs the crew?>How large is this gang you run?
>>2547346Good idea honestly, but you should probably, ya know, actually get a gang started.You've been faking it till you make it so far and that's admirable, but eventually, you need to start faking it till you become it.
>>2547346>So you just wanted to... use me? Use my image? I gotta say, that ''stings''.>If I did decide to make a real gang, how far would you guys be willing to go?
>>2547359Don't throw our fucking spaghetti in his face, that's just rude. It's not even funny, it'd just be super awkward.
>>2547346>your motivations make sense, but then this whole thing is gonna be officially called a gang by the authorities
>>2547346>Ask then if they are willing to join you because things are going to start to escalate quite fast around here. The big guys don't like to be showed as weak and they might start stuff like that again. I can't be in all places all the time and the big gangs are going to start getting more active. It's easier to crush the new upstart and all that jazz. And please it this is on the empire's tab hehehehehe
>>2547359You disrespect the spaghetti, you disrespect the chef.
>>2547378>>2547373>spilling spaghetti about spilling spaghettihow could we not
alright, I'm gonna try and answer as many as I can in character.
QM has placed the Harley analog at our feet. Let's not drive her away. Besides we really should get non cape gang members.
>>2547373I think you clicked on the wrong comment, pal
>>2547394Nah, we yell at her to come down here so presumably we left her on the roof.
>>2547396Yeah I read that late, thanks.
>>2547385More like we lucked with our 20
>Tattletale at your side.Girl is just attracted to us uh?
I just had a great Idea. What if when we find coil we lobotomise him, cut of his head and tinker to keep it alive, then we mess around with his head to follow our orders. This way we would command him to split the timelines as our head puppet whenever we wanted. Its like having his powers and screwing him over at the same time.
>>2547417More like she doesn't trust the folks who willingly dressed as clowns to copy us.
>>2547403True but he could have easily made the leader a guy with a strong Brooklyn accent too. Waifu wars aside, becoming a gang with more people let's us do more while grunts make cash.
Maybe we should point out that we're about to start an all out way with the E88?
So when are we making a giant mech to fight The Endbringers?
>>2547438They will know...soon...
>>2547454SOONAlso, we need to get started on Venom so our new minions don't get BTFO by the gangs.
>>2547471I’m afraid to ask but....sauce?
>>2547471>VenomIf only for the gif provided happening>MechWe don't really need one. Between us, flechette, and tattletale we can take down Leviathan easily enough in theory.
>>2547474>>2547476sorry brehs, /co/mblr mods deleted the thread I saved it from before salsa was provided.
>>2547471Why go with venom when we could just give them full body improvements?A group of Mover 3's jumping and leaping all over the place, blasting with tinker weapons and throwing out laughing gas grenades can do a hell of a lot more than a lumbering behemoth.A lot more subtle too.
>>2547490Yeah and they're already jacked, since some can take a sledge to the stomach and keep on going. Lets trick them the fuck out and keep the genetics stuff to ourselves and maybe some fuckers who cross us
>>2547490Venom takes less time for a larger group. Save the bodymods for our elite minions.
>>2547476looks like gen x the animated movie
>>2547498Also helps minimize problems if they bail. Venom will wear off. Body mods won't.
>>2547498It does fit the circus theme we were planning the more I think about it.Brute "Strongmen", Mover "Acrobatics", we've got Bitch for a beast master, and so on and so on.
>>2547491i'm always up to talk about best girl
>>2547501Gen 13 anon.
>>2547506We just need some strongmen, acrobats(with tightrope wire), and clowns
