Last Time on Worm Quest:You Tried to unfuck your genetics and it kinda worked? You then found the fanboys that had been marking territory in your name and pulled them into your gang. Their leader is a texan girl named piper, who is an unpowered vigilante with an awesome costume.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.

>>2549479Do VillainySteal ArmMaster's Bike to get a hotdog while the Minions steal from a bank
Go do some villainy.You call your gang into the main room and sit around a table one Ronnie pulled in from the old factory."Alright boys and girls, it's time we did something villainous with this little group. I need money for my tinkering and you need money to eat, so let's get to work."Tattletale says there's a bank near the boardwalk that launders money for the Empire, let's hit thatLet's go break our buddy with the art skills out of PRT custody.We have what we need to fight the Empire, it sounds like time for a good old fashioned bit of Brutal Gang ViolenceI want to mess with Armsmaster

>>2549532because I fucked up, also you're literally planning on doing crimes.
>>2549525Hit to places at once? Now that is crazy!! But you forget that the PRT most likely have capes or other security mesuares to prevent this kind of shit
>>2549532Despite how he runs like a machine, Zion is still human and occasionally makes mistakes.>>2549520No reason we can't have the Undersiders bust out art buddy while we distract the PRT by stealing Armsmasters bike and starting some gang violence with it.
>>2549525Support.Let's not use the money though, we really don't need it. >We could pile it up and burn it in the middle of town.>Mulch it and use it to make paper mache sculptures.> Draw clowns and shit on it, then break back into the bank and put it all back.
>>2549530And you are willing to attack a PRT whatever the place is that they put people? We would need more gear, Some bombs to break the walls maybe use as a distractiin to reduce the number of capes while we do the breaking.
>>2549538We only need the money to feed our people. Other then that we can literaly do as the joker did and just burn the money.
>>2549520>Let's go break our buddy with the art skills out of PRT custody.
>>2549530We'll just kool-aid it anon. Bonus points if we can make Armsmaster make the hole himself>>2549535Not if they're responding to a Manic situation. If they already think he's super dangerous they'll probably send out most of the heroes after him making security at base minimal....Or Bakuda shows up at the rig.Either way we can take advantage of the chaos
>>2549520Let's go break our buddy with the art skills out of PRT custody.>>2549516What a retarded meta reason to do villainy
alright, stop voting I'll count up the votes
>>2549540We can cut through anything with our cards and knock everyone with SmileX. Still risky without Tats bullshitery but I can see it.
>>2549536So long we can do the distraction part to help break our artist friend, and honestly whoever else comes with then to, because i doubt that in the chaos our friend would be the only one to try escape

Hey did anyone else noticed the increase in IPs with green colour in this thread? Weird shit isn't?
Distract armsmaster with bank robbery, while your buddies break out the artist wins writing.
>>2549520>hit the empire bankWe need some form of decent funds. More than 1000 dollars at least
>>2549562Man Corn isn't meat.
What part of >>2549548 people didn't get?
We can gas the rig and loot it after they are asleep
>>2549567Dammit I have to go to work.Don't kill us. Gais gais plsMake sure to raise Armsy's blood pressure!
>>2549567By "distract arm master" you mean "steal his arm and run around like an idiot" correct?
>>2549579I think we're aiming for his bike this time. We'll probably get his arm out of it anyway though.
>>2549579We need to expand our collection. It is very important.
>>2549580>>2549583We shouldn't even use the bike, lets just melt it down into material for our inevitable arm effigy of our face that we're going to send to him.
>>2549580So we are distracting army with some gang violence and letting the undersides bust our artist friend out?>>2549586i kinda feel bad for armsy. But then i remember he's a serious stuck up and remember he needs to relax from time to time. We need to show him how to not be so serious.
>>2549524Let's do this. Best distraction for a break out. Also what's going on with the old bussiness owner who's life we saved?
>>2549586Very important question: How big will this arm effigy be? 50 arms worth, 500 arms worth, or 5000 arms worth?If it's big enough we should consider developing some kind of gigantic blip so that we can drop it on the PHQ.
>>2549597Bleh. I meant to say Blimp.
Let’s make a armsmaster out of arms
>>2549597Getting 50 arms would take a long time, 5000? Forget about it, but where does armsy get these arms? He needs to have some sort of vault somewhere
>>2549597>arm now has non magnetic metal to prevent it being taken off > cut arm off run awayWe do this until he finally just gets the arm regrown
>>2549590Well that was my plan but it looks like we're using it to rob a bank instead of hang violence, but at least it's an E88 bank.
"Alright, so I have an idea. That guy from before, the artist who got caught. I'll distract the PRT with something and you guys can break him out. Tats said that there was a bank that the Empire puts money through, I'll head over there and do my routine. You know, gas some superheroes, Call out Armsmaster and then run away. That will call out the PRT. And I'll steal his uh, bike? Arm? maybe both.The Undersiders seem to be rather into this, but want to get the specifics figured out before they go out.Your unpowered gang members also seem a bit leery of this, but they seem to have faith in your plan, especially since they know that the PRT will have to respond to you in force.The one question that remains after all the other ideas are hashed out is neatly summed up by piper."So who's actually going where? Robbing a bank on your own is supposed to be really hard. But breaking into PRT Central has got to be pretty tough too."14 Gang members.Grue:Darkness generator and manipulator, knows Kung Fu.Tattletale:Sherlock Holmes on crack.Bitch:Has dogs that she can enlarge and turn into car sized hellbeasts.Regent:Can cause people's muscles to spasm incredibly hard, Can do "other things" but refuses. Psychopath.Piper: Unpowered vigilante with an awesome costume. kinda fangirly.Tattletale is unavailable.
>>2549606Cherry on top would be a speech on improving yourself vs just adding "improvements" to yourself"Trust your real arms armsmaster. I believe in you"
>>2549610the real arms were inside you all along.
>>2549609Everyone but tattletale going to the prt while only us go to the bank.
All but piper go to the prt with some gas bombs
>>2549610Then cut off his other arm.>>2549609PRT: Grue and Regent. Grue for darkness and Regent to stop any guards from hitting alarms with his power.Bank: Us, Bitch, and Piper, and a couple goons. Bitch for muscle, Piper and goons for hostage and exit watching, us for actually getting into the vault.
>>2549609Backing >>2549615. Grue and Regent can run defense/utility with darkness/spasms, while Bitch can bust through walls with dogs and gang members can help locate the guy or handle the PRT mooks.Alone, Bart can just cut through all the walls straight to the vault while nonlethaling anybody inside, leaving us perfectly in place to take some money and leave Armsmaster a little confetti present :^)
>>2549609Everybody goes to break out the guy while only Barnaby will go to the bank
>>2549615We need more peeps if we want to make the robbery look good. Since the main focus of the bank is distraction/escape We can use Bitch and some gang members to do the bank. While the rest can keep things in PRT. Regent can control people right? Maybe use him in the PRT so the i filtration than go without being fastly discovered would be a good use also Grue can block the cameras with darkness and move along?So i guessGrue and Regent + Piper go to the rescue of our artist friend.Us+ Bitch + 7 minions go do the bank thing
>>2549618I will support this. Bitch can work as the gateaway driver since we can use some of her dogs to ride out of the place.
>>2549628Maybe send a couple of more unassuming mooks on the prison break, just for the sake of backup.
have to pop across the road, will call the voting when i get back.
>>2549609Go to bank alone andd everyone else goes to the prt, except bitch, she stays at the base with tats.Coils still a thing guys
>>2549615Too risky. Plus the bank robbery doesn't NEED to succeed, just create a draw. We take either Grue or Bitch. Primary goal is to get in, make a scene, get out. They can help with mobility (Bitch and her dogs) or stealth ( True darkeness)Both can create enough chaos without direct involvement to help out greatly. Kinda want Grue with the breakout team to help minimize casualties though. Secondary is perform the actual heist, but we don't have acid to break into a vault or anything like it. At best we're stealing from the till, unless someone at the bank wants to help us fight the e88.Tertiary is escape with armsmaster's arm. Bike Or arm may have a locator at this point. Setting up a rendezvous "pseudobase" may be necessary for this part.
>>2549641So leave a couple of minions behind?
>>2549642Our cards should get us in the vault.
>>2549638The prison will be more steathly then the bank. A smaller group will be easier to get in and to get out we can always do a break out
>>2549618>Then cut off his other armYes. Absolutely hysterical. I hope that this ends up happening.Oh, I'd also like to support this plan.
>>2549642Doesn't need to succeed fair. But we still meed to make it look like we want to. Trying to rob a bank with just Bitch and us while having to deal with securoty and any empire goons in the place plus the heroes comming to arrest us is a recepie to be caugth.
Oh yeah i just realized something. Do we have any idea how our artist friend looks like? Would be emberasing if we don't know how he looked just saying.
>>2549644If we left all the minions with the guns from coils failed attempt on us maybe.
Dude got in trouble for drawing graffiti breaking him out of jail seems like an overreaction. Like if we break him out, he is now a runaway criminal.
>>2549654Then let's do it? Not like we need much beside our gas to k.o. the security inside the bank
>>2549661Good now he won't have any choice but be our pal. Also breaking into the jail allow us to get even more peeps to our side. Because i bet some criminals would love to side with the guy who had the guts to break them free. Not all of then mind you but a couple will.
>>2549661He got arrested for putting a tag on a government building. That's insane. I had a family member get in trouble for tagging a govt building 117 times in a day. He never saw a jail cell. He was sentenced to a fine or community service.This is standard PRT overstepping their bounds because it messed with their stuff.
alright, I'm calling it here.lemme count it up.
>>2549678to be fair, it was a twenty foot by ten (roughly) mural of a known supervillain who had taken out the city's official team.
>>2549678Well I mean he was suspected to be in cahoots with The Manic
>>2549683It's still just paint.
>>2549609Tattletale and Grue would be best for shutting down the PRTs security, while Bitch's dogs would be good for carrying all the money away from the bank.I guess have everyone but a few gang members and bitch wait near the PRT base, while we use the remainder for the heist.
>>2549686Perfect explanation, it's a plot hole
>>2549690>>2549686Well, he might be a cape based around paint? That would be cool as shit and would explain why the PRT would book him for some bullshit like that.
>>2549704it would certainly make sense as to why his name wasn't made public.
>>2549704Maybe he can make living graffiti? That would actually be cool as shit.
>>2549706We have to get this guy out now. He would do wonders for getting our gang's name/message out there. Depending on it's combat applications, he could even be another body for a Cape Fight. We need every cape we can get.
Grue and Regent for stealth breakout. everyone else for the bank job wins.writing
We should note, why were robbing it, I. E. Something. Like "So I hard this bank has been naughty , didn't your mom tell you Nazis at bad"Make it look better.
>>2549720Why not just give the money back to the people(as in civillians) once we're done. Or maybe just burn it all in a public space
Okay, so I'm gonna be doing the bank job first, then we'll play through the breakout.
>>2549733We also need money
>>2549720Banks are stale and dreary places. Manic wants to make them more interesting.
>>2549737Do we really though?
>>2549733Because if we wnat to have a big gang and get something to ouraelfs we will need money. I know WE don't need it but our boys and girls migth.
>>2549739We don't need it but our goons and friends do. Besides food needs to be bougth ans we get more money to spend in our favorite food joints.
We keep whatever cut is the empire's using tattle tale, and give the rest back
>>2549737K so one third to us the other two thirds thrown into the crowd as we escape to create chaos. Also apologise while doing it, but in a witty way.
>>2549750Or we could keep all the money and use it for a variety of projects to improve our gang and help out the people living directly under our control. Set up a few food kitchens, maybe a free clinic with JokerBrand Medicine, and we're all set for good local PR.
Also let's not delude ourselves into thinking were doing the right thing, people's personal savings are gonna be lost. Of course bank could have insurance in this case were not effecting the empire at all, so I'm gonna assume it's gonna effect account holders But we need money and this is the most palpable method we have.
When I said give back, I was referring to soup kitchens and such. Gangs commonly use these methods to build good will.
We should casually walk in and go. "Excuse me I need to make a withdrawal." When they ask how much we go. "All if it." Then we make all hell break loose with gas.
>>2549757I'm down for starting a soup kitchen or two with the profit, or maybe giving some hobos a turkey and some wine just to build community goodwill
>>2549761I am a big fan of starting up a free clinic too. It would give us a great place to experiment and will probably become much cheaper relative to other options as we tinker with medicine.
>>2549755So you want to go the 'good guy'(tm) route? With a character based off the Joker?
Problem, with clinic is we don't have time to operate one.
>>2549765>>2549761Our issue is that as we scale up, there will be an active attempt to find our base and remove us. The larger team we have on the bank heist, the sooner our opponents realize we're putting together a gang rather than a teamup.The more we do in a given neighborhood, the more scrutiny that neighborhood will draw.
>>2549767I see we've already forgotten about the mobile clinic idea.
>>2549757and the way I see it using lets call it 'Gang' tactics will kinda dispel the confusion the public currently has about Manic. Up until this robbery he will have been just some scary case 53 looking fucker who really likes bullying Armsmaster and does a half decent livestream. The second Manic is doing obviously gangish stuff is the second he and the maniacs can be dismissed as 'Just another gang'. So we've got to keep them guessing, keep em on their toes. I'm still all for hail-marrying a bag of swag into the crowd as we escape, or armsmaster when he inevitably shows up, just to keep the general public a little confused, just obviously less than two-thirds.
>>2549770This.Ghetto clinic van is the best version of the clinic idea.
Operating soup kitchens, and such is not perceived as gang shit. That's why gangs do them.
>>2549766Aside from the opening post where it's mentioned why we're good natured (comparatively speaking), would you want to rule over a shithole? If the public liked us enough or we're ingrained into the community enough the PRT will leave us alone by and large. No one wants to rat out the guy who got them back in their feet or saved their life.There's more to good acts than just feeling good about yourself.
>>2549756Should be safe to assume this is part of a larger banking corporation, so money on the books should be insured and safe for the most part.Even if it's an independent bank, anyone on the books with under $250k is insured. A robbery will provide the authorities excuses to audit the books. That'd be interesting if we could pull a "inside man"-esque heist. Where we use the heist to draw attention to something else. If we could use the heist to capture cooked books/evidence of working with E88, it'd be a huge step for us. Would result in further bank audits.
It is with excitement in your heart and a bubbling laugh that you find yourself speeding towards the bank in a white van with covered plates, Bitch's dogs running along behind your van. You have another van(black) and two motorbikes, all with gang members inside. Bitch is riding one of her dogs while you and Piper are in the front van. Normally you'd be trying for a bit more stealth but you want more attention this time."So guys, you looking forwards for a bit of fun?"The men around you nod their heads slowly while checking their weapons, in addition to Piper, Ronnie and Reggie you also have two thinner men with pistols who served in some war or another in the back with you. The driver is an old man, grey beard and all who speaks in a heavy Canadian accent.Piper's so damn excited she looks to be vibrating in her seat. She's already checked her pistols four times since you started the journey into town, and she answers your question with a definite if slightly higher pitched than you'd like "yeah".Reggie and the others chuckle at this, the heavyset man pulling his clown mask on over his head. "Don't worry boss, she'll be okay once we're in."You're just about to start taking the piss when the van starts to slow down and the driver calls out into the back."We're there, Time to knuckle down ladies."You head out of the van and turn out into the street. You're about halfway down the boardwalk, a long stretch of high value real estate that provides pretty much all of the city's income. You also can see the very top of the PRT building from where you are, maybe a mile or so away down the road.You turn back to the Brockton Bay Central Bank, and walk towards the front doors slowly.Barnaby/ManicStatus:D A M A G E D[Need] 4/20[Gene Fragmentation]0/60Karma:1Money: 492 DollarsCurrent power Understanding: Evolving body and Tinker powers.

>>2549780This is a good idea.
>>2549781>Go in calmly, ask to make a withdrawal. when they ask how much just say all of it.
>>2549766>>2549777Basically this. Good PR can make or break a gang. The Hell's Angels are seen as lovable rascals on bikes despite trafficking guns, drugs, and women.
>Ask for all of it!Because QM took my shitty write up into account. Thanks QM!
>>2549771If robbing a bank is a problem why not do the opposite? Walk in with a bag full of monopoly money and say we're making a deposit.
>>2549781>Go in calmly, ask to make a withdrawal. when they ask how much just say all of it.Pic related.
>>2549781> Fire gun in the wildly in air> "Ladies and Gentlemen! We are today's entertainment!"
>>2549781>Go in calmly, ask to make a withdrawal. when they ask how much just say all of it.>>2549794eh, then we'd just be a joke, like Uber and Leet. Manic is the deliverer of jokes, not the joke itself.
>>2549781We shouldn't lead in. One of our gangsters should pretend to be a civvie. Should give our people enough time to get everyone in better positions if they're distracting enough to draw the attention of any guards.Like someone who has a small amount of money in closing out an account cuz they're "mad" with the bank. Making a HUGE ruckus while the teller tries to keep the account for them. Yell about "I didn't know you were associated with supremicist fucks until yesterday" and keep on yelling till security gets involved. I also now wish we had SmileX modified rounds for our teammates to use in their general weaponry.
>>2549781Go in calmly, ask to make a withdrawal. when they ask how much just say all of it.i would think that causing chaos would make us be noticed sooner but let's try to be subtle. As much as we can in our current clothing!
>>2549800Next time anon. Next time.
Hi, i'm here to make a withdrawal.writing.
>>2549794>>2549799Honestly throwing some money around would get civvies to run for it. Would be a great part of the getaway if we had enough in the heist.Still wanna focus on using this heist to expose E88 connections.Also coming in with Monopoly money to deposit would at least create a hell of a distraction to get our people in place. Too bad we didnt prep with that.
>>2549794Wait, even better idea, rob the bank, then come back later with a bad mustache disguise and make a deposit/donation with half of the money we stole!
>>2549811"Hello i'm Joshua gold-stein and i'd like to make a donation."
>Piper's so damn excited she looks to be vibrating in her seat. She's already checked her pistols four times since you started the journey into town, and she answers your question with a definite if slightly higher pitched than you'd like "yeah".God dam this girl is perfect.
>Go in calmly, ask to make a withdrawal. when they ask how much just say all of it.
>>2549811I support this.
>>2549810i think having a super powered villain walk in and try to take a withdraw will be enough of a distraction. We are kinda hard to not notice now.
>>2549822Fair. Plus it's not public knowledge we have a gang now. Should let the others move in without issue.Ideally they can take out security without killing anyone.Also want to figure out where they keep their records. Would be nice to get that information if we're REALLY fucking E88
I wonder if piper is a super smart and wants a psyche major. Probably not?
>>2549817Don't get it twisted for even a moment, Anon.She good, but no girl in Worm is anywhere near perfect.She'll show her true colors soon enoughOur normie henchman can't possibly be this cute.
>>2549845But anon we gotta believe! Because no other fuck in this setting does. Besides if she's not perfect it's nothing a little gene therapy can't fix. Right?
>>2549787>>2549777Accumulating wealth is the set-up. Investing wealth in PR for our organization, so that it can grow easier is the pay-off.Nothing about this joke is funny.
>>2549835We need to get her a hammer or some other kind of custom-made weapon some time.
>>2549845DUDE! She thinks our gas is the coolest shit ever! She is already top rank in my opinion.>>2549849There is always room for improvement.
>>2549850The soud we serve has a mutagen that makes people that drink it become well mutants. We can finaly have a use for all the hobbos in our territory.
>>2549865now THAT'S pretty fuckin evil m8
>>2549867Even worse, it's not funny.Where's the joke in making people mutants?
>>2549865Hey-now. That sounds like a riot.
>>2549869All comedy boils down to tragedy plus time. The rest of the world will come to appreciate the humor of the situation in time.
>>2549871Speaking of riots. How about we start one by tossing some cash off of a building and making individual bills rain. That'll make a scene, people fighting over money in the streets and technically the money was being donated to a good cause.
>>2549865>>2549869They all look like mindless monsters but actually still have their human consciences.They all agree their lives are better now as monsters than as humans.They like having tea parties.
>>2549845The entire reason that every cape is so fucked in the head is majorly due to their shard either pushing them into conflict or altering their personality. So long as she doesn't trigger, she should be fine?>>2549850If we want an organization supporting the Joker, and the thread has made it seem like that, we need to prepare them. The E88, AZN, and PRT are eventually gonna come knocking to stop our bullshit.Good PR will allow us to recruit more manpower against the E88 and AZN. It will stop the PRT from committing offensive actions against us. It will raise profits/loyalty/strength in the long-term as the city sections under our control comes to trust and depend upon us.Just because we are a Joker expy. doesn't mean everything we do has to be "funny."
>>2549877>>2549877This! And we add that they love hotdogs.
You and your gang walk into the bank, you and the maniacs going in first while Bitch and her dogs keep watch outside.Civilians immediately freeze as they notice the heavily armed and armoured thugs take positions around the room, looking out of windows and into side rooms.The bank consists of a large atrium, with stairs leading up to another level behind a row of desks at the back. The bankers seem rather practised at this, and you can already see one of them frantically pushing a button under the desk. Normally that'd be a problem, but not this time.You walk towards the desks as people scrabble away and turn on their phones, most of them just start filming but there is one who calls the PRT. You turn to him as he makes the call and mock surprise before beginning to manifest your favourite of meat dishes.Ham."Oh, that reminds me! Just while you're on the phone can you tell Armsmaster that Manic's looking for him? I thought I'd check in on him since he gave such me a hand last time we met and I'd like to thank him properly."After savouring his mortified look for a second, you continue heading towards the desk and push your way through the retreating citizens. "Excuse me, sooo sorry. Just need to get through to the desk. Be right out of your hair. Eventually you find yourself at the front desk watching as the desk manager frantically pushes the little red button under his desk. The two of you stand there for a time, just watching him spam for help. "Hello there, I'd like to make a withdrawal please""I assume you'll be wanting the standard supervillain rate sir?" Hey, this one actually has a sense of humor.Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.This is your stage, smack this Joker.Of course, I'll need to head into the back though, make sure everything's on the up and up.Write in

>>2549884>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.It's always nice when someone's in on the joke.
>>2549884Of course, I'll need to head into the back though, make sure everything's on the up and up.Gotta find some evidence on the E88
>>2549884He's stealing out punchline. But he's not being a dick about it...much. What do? I say>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.Or he could be stalling for time! Fuck!
>>2549884>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up. Also, let out a deep chuckle>>2549889It isn't in our style to punish someone for humour
>>2549884>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.Hey i like this guy.
>>2549896He is however trying to upstage us and that cannot he allowed.

>>2549884>Of course, I'll need to head into the back though, make sure everything's on the up and up.gotta show the newbs that we trust them to keep things under control
>>2549895But that is good we want the supes to come meet us.
>>2549884>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.
>>2549899Not really. I don't think anyone's ever tried to upstage us before.Even then, we should see this as simply an oppertunity for more jokes.
>>2549900>>2549889Guys we can just gas him later if he keeps trying to upstage us.
>>2549904Oh right. Sorry. Old rogue habits kicking in. But others anons are right. We've never really punished anyone for going along with our jokes. Plus it's kind of nice to have a another person to bounce material off of.
>>2549900>"My compatriots on the other hand.">"Are also perfectly upstanding citizens."
>>2549899So we just upstage him harder. This is the Worm universe. The word of the day has been 'escalation' for the past fifty years round here. We'll just be doing it with jokes rather than violence
>>2549884>Of course, Don't bother yourself. I'll send some of my boys into the back to pick it up.We should take a pic with this guy.

>>2549884I dunno if we're super villains or notI'd say super neutral.I'd ask where the kitchen is. We want the cooked books.Our gangsters need us to open the vault at the very least. So we need to go in the back for that at least. Getting any evidence of gang connections is a plus. Especially if we're the ones breaking the news via internet and not the PRT/Cops.
>>2549924>>2549923>>2549922Oh noo we got busted! What should we even do now!~
>>2549925Its a trade-off. We're either in the bank cutting open the vault or in the lobby waiting on the PRT response team. I would rather be safe than have the money in this scenario.>>2549927One roll too late. RIP.
>>2549924So long it isn't Piper, Bitch or us i'm okay with anyone else hitting the floor

"And remember to check the break room, I'm in the mood for some cooked books!" You chuckle to yourself as the cashier goes almost as white as you, before continuing to press the silent alarm.You are actually so absorbed in needling the front desk manager that neither you, nor your chuckling comrades notice Glory Girl coming out of the toilets, at least at first. You all turn your heads once she punches Reggie through a window and out onto the street.

I mean, we CAN ask her. Tell her we want to be sure we aren't gonna kill her in our jokey way.At the minimum, our taser gloves (which haven't been put to use publicly yet I think) and our gas should be able to handle her without killing her. The gas might cause friendly fire though.
>>2549955>Status: TerrifiedOh shit, the fucking aura
>>2549984So. Manic's got to be cackling like a goddamned lunatic right now right?
>>2549988Actually yeah. That should probably confuse the living hell out of her at the minimum. Especially if we're cracking super ham on her because of it.
>Glory GirlREALLY! That's her actual hero name? Sounds more like a prostitute name then a heroine name.
I am unsure we can win in ham to ham combat against glory girl.
>>2549992Yeah but it'll probably look really really cool and that is the important thing.

>>2549992We got super reflexes and enhanced strength from our suit and mutations, and her force field doesn't last too much, we'll be fine.
>>2549992Her name is glory girl. She's better off in a glory hole. We could totally offer to leave the bank if she wins a humor contest against us. Considering how bonkers we are, she'll probably believe us.

>>2550030Only if we fail by alot.
>>2550016You need to roll a negative modifier anon.
>>2550033I copy pasted what Zion put in his post man. Idk
>>2550030I imagine that sort of thing would only happen if we rolled both a 1 and a 20.
>>2550030How dare you to suggest we'd cheat on Amsmaster!
>>2550030Well if the funny clown act doesn't work then the next step is terrifying maniac.Us going into a laughing fit as we pounce on Glory Hole will be great.
>>2550030We are laughting like a maniac right now and charging a girl with super-strength. Man if the civies and everyone else didn't think we were crazy before.
>>2550029Average for a single roll maybe, but it's bad for 3d20.
>>2550035fucking peasants. To put a negative modifier you need to type: dice+1d20+-1
>>2550030What this guy said:>>2550037 we are no arm slut.We inly grab armsy arms and that's it.
>>2550010>>2550011wtf, even the post numbers end in 10-11
>>2550044Why are you so upset?
>>2550049Because peasants like you annoy me.Also because Zion doesn't count rolls with the wrong modifier.
>>2550047Some one is fucking with us.
>>2550052There was already three rolls so it doesn't count anyway, besides Zion just accidentally switched around the + and -, it's nothing to throw a shitfit about.

>>2550056WERE DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!! Every thing is worth throwing a shit fit!
>>2550059We should put a smile on her face she is taking things way to serious. Also so we can revenge Reggie.
So how badly do you think our teeth have been kicked in? I highly doubt that a 10 is enough to pass the DC for sucker punching Glory Girl.
It would seem Reggie has volunteered to be the first of our empowered mooks after we fix his spine and or neck.
>>2550065We still have Bitch as back up. She's arguable an even heavier hitter than us.
>>2550065Well I doubt it's bullet through the throat levels of bad we're probably going to be a bit more fragmented after this
>>2550065Is fine we can always take a good chem bath and get more teeths. Sharp teeths even.
>>2550065She's gonna get some hits in, (Both physical and mental) but she won't hurt us too bad to get us out the fight.The REAL problem is making sure the others can handle the PRT busting in at any moment now.REMINDER THIS A GREAT TIME TO SEE IF OUR GAS WORKS AGAINST HER FORCE FIELD.
>Go read the wiki and find out that Pan-Pan-chan is Glory(hole) Girl sisterOh so that's why she is mad!
>>2550074We're in an enclosed room with minions who don't have gas protection from us. Unless the windows are broken out, it's a bad idea.
>>2550074But won't thw gas effect our mooks? I know Piper loves it but we will need to at least clear away from then.
>>2550079If we knew that, I'd totally be up to taunt her about how her sister refused to save a life, so we had to step in.
10= Perfect Draw.You recoil as Glory Girl hurtles towards you, hysterical laughter being cut off by her fist impacting your breastplate as you're sent flying. She follows after you and winds up another haymaker, but you roll backwards as you hit the ground and bounce off the wall over her head to avoid her wrath. Said wrath obliterates the wall behind you, this is normally where you'd banter at her but you can't stop laughing. This only seems to make her angrier and she hurls a chunk of wall at your head, which you barely avoid by spinning to the side. Three cards are thrown but none of them penetrate her skin, and she simply charges through them as they loop back around to you.You redirect her next punch past your face, narrowly missing your perfect teeth and shattering a wooden door behind you into thousands of tiny splinters. Thank god for your reinforced armour.Your spin kick in response pushes her away but does no actual damage, only giving you enough time to regain your balance and dodge the next hit.The fight continues for about a minute, with your mooks mostly scrambling out of the way while they work to keep the crowd under control. There's a few incidents with people who manage to run and one even gets away before they can be caught.One of your minions comes back from behind the desk and stops for a minute as he sees you fighting Glory Girl, before very gingerly grabbing a Card from where it fell and heading into the back.You can hear Sirens in the distance.Barnaby/ManicStatus: Terrified, slight chest bruising.

>>2550134And we are back in the game baby!
>>2550143Question are any of the 'hostages' taking pictures/filming our little ham.
>>2550151Let them watch, I like to think we're an entertainer at heart.
>>2550151We didn't take away the phones. Many of them probably are. We didn't even try to stop them from calling anybody.>>2550136Gas grenades behind us should make it impractical for the police to attempt following us. And knowing Glory, she'll probably attempt to fly through it, get drowsy, and fly into a building.
>>2550157Also, they probably caught us mentioning cooked books. If we release the information of the bank playing ball with E88, it'll connect the dots for those researching us.Also this might be distraction enough (Ie: this robbery having additional motivation) the PRT might not connect this and the breakout together as fast as they would've otherwise.
>>2550138What if we tossed a Money bag behind us that had Non-lethal SmileE grenades. If we could rig it on the fly to detonate upon handling
>>2550165depends how much money we can get. But then again the money isn't the goal here.
>>2550157She really has earned the name queen of Collateral Damage huh.
fuck, wish we had tattletale here with us.Get her family spinnning out of control with her info shit.
You know we just missed a huge opportunity.Why didn't we honk her boob and zap her that way? Not that I wanna be know as a serial molester, but it's too fitting.
>>2550177We can probably do that with a piece of her costume or a piece of her arm
>>2550177I called it. This could have been avoided by postponing the research or the robbery, but anons have planning myopia.
>>2550192Wouldn't it be on the net or news? Like somewhere it might have slipped that those two are related even if we don't know their secret identities? Grasping at straws I know but we just gotta get this one heckle in.
>>2550171Yup. Almost makes me wonder if we even need our card to break the vault or if we could use her for that.
>>2550193We know they are sisters because their identities are public like all New Wave capes. But we dont have Tattle's bullshit to imply that Panacea has a thing for her sister.
>>2550193As far as I'm aware it's common knowledge that Pan is GGs adopted sister.
>>2550192To late to try and come up with what could have being. Focus now and how to get away.
>>2550196I'd love if we could trick her into that.Plus, she might legit think our mind works different to her aura what with us laughing at her when we should be intimidated
>>2550204If it's TRULY common knowledge, I am up for being legitimately mad at her that her sister wouldn't save a life.
>>2550198Could just try to make her look bad instead. A kinda "What exactly made me an asshole? Was it when I beat up a Nazi or when I cured cancer?" situation
>>2550216I suppose I could support that.
>>2550216>>2550221We are going to brag about being a saint while robbing a bank. Yeah, okay.
>>2550211"I know who you are. You're the sister of that quack who acts like a god. If you have the ability, you save who you can. You don't dictate who should die just because you're afraid of brains. How could anyone love a sister like that" or something like that.Someone make it more joker-like.
>>2550229We don't know she's afraid of brains.
>>2550225She's probably costing the bank more in damages than we'll steal at this point.
>>2550216I think the logical response would be when we tried to rob a bank, gang owned or not.Will give her something to think about though.
>>2550225Nobody has been hurt yet, and we're gonna reveal WHY we did it on the internet.And doing so will bring public scrutiny to the E88. It will also make the PRT look really bad for not having caught this way earlier, and that it took a hero whos been around two weeks to bring attention to it.
Is manic about to make another W? Where are we sitting with our win loss ratio?
>>2550231Mr. Higgs directly told us that Panacea refused to operate on her because of her brain, didn't he?
>>2550235Zero losses so far as I could tell, and we've won basically every encounter we've had so far.
>>2550225That's the joke anon.>>2550207Or maybe she will just think we are crazy.
>>2550235At least ten digits above Armsmaster
>>2550185Fuck, we need to do this
>>2550239Yes, and he speculated that it was because the PRT forbid her from changing brains. The "official" reason is that it's a limitation of her power.
>>2550235We did have a close call with a bullet in our throat last time. But we got better.
>>2550242Considering the things we've pulled off, we can obviously make plans. She'll figure that much out at least, which means while we may be crazy, we're not insane.But it means she can't predict us. Also that she will believe we can't be intimidatedJust made me realize those not on our side would be confused why anyone would ally with a nutter.
>>2550198We don't need to know that. Just heckling someone's sibling is enough to piss someone off normally so it would still be in character in trying to upset a hero with jokes. I'm sure if someone fucked with Manic's little bro he'd go full murder hobo.
>>2550246Wouldn't stop us from taunting her about Panacea not helping someone at least. We can also very much DOUBT that she's incapable of excising a tumor with her abilities.
>>2550250Well if you saw someone just laughing at glory girl while going toe to toe with her wouldn’t ya wanna join up with them?
>>2550251Allright. But think of something that COULD work, and doesn't rely on meta knowledge.
>>2550234Still sound kinda silly if you ask me, like we are making excuses.I mean that IS half the reason we did it, but I dont like the idea of soapbox preaching. Unless we are doing it specifically to piss someone off it just seems lame.
>>2550254Dude, she has LITERALLY saved dozens, hundreds more people than we have ever done. It's not going to bother her at all.
Desperately tying to escape the Alexandria clone is more difficult than it seems, mostly because she can fly really fast. You duck and weave past her strikes, laughing like a maniac all the while.The true difficulty here to be entirely honest, is wrestling with your power to stop it from pushing you off the deep end. One crippled hero is enough frankly, at least for you. You need a way of taking her down without incurring the wrath of the Dallon household. Eventually, while mid dodge your terrified brain supplies an idea. You know she is resistant to punches and kicks, but electricity is an entirely different form of energy.You catch an incoming punch and activate your Happy Zappers, pushing as hard as you can to stop her punch from pasting your head all over the wall.She laughs. A short and victorious thing, with a vicious edge. Then she grabs you by the shoulder and pulls you in towards her.Until Piper shoots her in the back, pistol ringing out in the silence, with Glory Girl's scream echoing out afterwards as electricity dances across her frame. She pushes off you with her feet and flies up into the air, fighting convulsions all the way.She's hurt now, not as invincible as she likes to pretend it seems. Maybe her power can only defend against one thing at a time?At some point during the battle, your mooks started exchanging fire with PRT troops outside. Damnit. You can see the other heroes lining up outside as well, with Dauntless and Velocity leading Kid Win and Shadow Stalker into position outside, you also see Giggleswitch getting out of a PRT van. Holding a goddamn machete on his shoulder, how is he allowed to do that? You're pretty sure that Wards aren't allowed to kill people.Barnaby/ManicStatus: Terrified, slight chest bruising.

We can fight in the gas, they cannot. And Glory is fighting a grudge match against us. She'll follow us outside.

Piper keeps firing on Glory Girl as you gasp and recover your breath, forcing the blonde heroine into evasive actions above you. Naturally you decide that the best option available to you at the moment is to jump up into the air and catch her in one of her long loops around the roof. You grapple with her and hold her still enough for Piper to put two bullets in her leg, the first one ricocheting off into a wall distressingly close to one of your minion's faces. The other pierces her leg and she falls to the floor. you quickly hold a gas grenade under her nose and send her to her happy place.You can hear Armsmaster's Bike arrive now, the distinctive roar of its colossal engine humming in your ears as it gets closer and closer. You go to throw a SmileX grenade outside, but notice that the heroes and troopers are all wearing gas masks. they've stopped shooting now and several PRT troopers are being carted into ambulances.Assault is riding bitch on Armsmaster's bike as well, and looks absolutely terrified.Armsmaster and Dauntless are stepping towards the vank and stop about five metres from the main door.One of your minions from the Back team comes through and says that they're about halfway through the vault door.

>>2550389I love this so much. We'll release half the hostages for one arm. And the other half for the other arm. Should also prep gas so we have a smokescreen + see effectiveness vs gas masks. We should get some built in gas masks into our gangster's masks.

Remember last thread lads?when I said that both twenties and ones without modifiers counted?

You all realize once we open up the mobile clinic we're going to have to give it the slogan "COMPLETELY FUNDED BY STOLEN NAZI GOLD."

>>2550452Do it! Man if the news are covering this shit TT migrane must be unbarable right now.
>>2550454The way she is right now i think she can't even focus to make a force field right now.

>>2550452Make appointment with news via aliasmanage to get on news helping the poor with the slogan on it.Get attacked by PRT and lose the poorly equipped van. DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN
>>2550432You u could also also count all rolls regardless of modifiers
You think we could bluff and say that the new version of gas we deployed is ignitable. Prevent them from shooting guns?
>>2550461That kills the whole point, and ruins the hype moments and despair moments. Bad idea.
>>2550464It literally means nothing if modifiers are ignored during rolls. I'm sure Zion is smart enough to add a plus 3 to a roll
So since we have a bunch of 88E shit inside the bank we can always send all this shit to HQ and have that at home base computer after that we can scrap the eletronics and mount something dangerous to attach Gloryhole girl
>>2550468This post makes me want to put the laptop in the middle of the lobby with a giant sign that says"Proof this bank worked with Nazis here"
Remember guys to grab Reggie and fix him later.
>>2550483Reggie is outside the bank though...unless the ambulance took him who i doubt they did. We will have a bad time getting him back.Saying that i still want to rescue him and if we can't we put a smile in Glory (hole) Girl
We to start coming up with some new tricks. Everyone expects the cards and the gas now.
>>2550497I doubt it people seem to be eager to do shit this time instead of staying out of arms and plan some gadgets to fuck with people. We didn't even made a acid flower or a acid gun yet.
>>2550497 Agreed. Problem is, what?Maybe a venom-lite?Going from a mid level mover to a Brute 4 should shake things up a bit.
>>2550497Yeah, This game is starting to need creativity. We can't just mutate our goons when hero's with super strength are around. We need to think up of more creative and unexpected tricks if we're to do anything about the Capes. Maybe we should research some of them and turn their powers into a trick?
>>2550504That's an option on the research screen dude
>>2550502Let's go full Mr. Hyde juice
>>2550504Glory hole's forcefield would be favorite.
>>2550497Some chemical that dissolves textiles (https://youtu.be/jbqpG5fYai4)?Or if we want to be more serious something to dissolve containment foam would come in really useful too.
>>2550507That we never use
Would help if we could trick Bruce out so we can always have an extra attacker.
>>2550511You can never go wrong with containment foam.
>>2550511Was a chemical to fuck up with powers a option some time ago?Let's see. a bang gun that needs to be double tapped it works as a dart/bolt and as the pole holding the bang flag is made the same material that our card. So like a harpoon gun.
>>2550517No Bruce our pet. No experiments on the puppy.
>>2550524how about just a simple perfume bottle with laughing gas?
>>2550524I have no idea how we haven't made the "fake" gun yet
>>2550524That doubles as a grappling hookWe have a freakin gene editing bay at home. We have the capability of making anyone a low level cape at this point. Or at least making our goons discount Captain Americas. And with the arms we can make them winter soldiers.
>>2550530Because mask can't count acid. Also the gas is being countered by gas masks right now.
>>2550502Here's a list of weapon ideas.>Laughing Gas! Fear Gas! All kinds of Gasses to effect people in weird ways!>Lupin III gadgets to evade capture/restrictions.>Pocket dust.>Various liquids.>Water guns for our liquids.>Toy bombs.>Toy BANG! pistol, looks exactly like our real one we have so we can switch between them.>Toy boxing glove that is also a power fist.>Joy Buzzer that can switch between harmless and high voltage.>Singular/Bouquet of squirt flowers that squirt our liquids.>Not having a 'surprise slingshot' which shoots pellets full of surprises(like ground glass and failed toxic tinker substances) and custom grenades.>Not having a missile launcher which goes shoots out a flag that says 'bang' which is a cover for the fact that the missile launcher IS the missile before it shoots off.>Not having Borderlands 2 explosive tediore guns.>Not attaching our strange metal creator to a gun and feeding it junk to shoot bullets.>Not creating a toy cupid crossbow with customizable bolts.
>>2550532People got bored and we needed the money. Also the capes came and fucked our shit so i guess we are suffering from our rapid growth?>>2550536Well if we want to start messing with E88 and the other gangs we are going to need start doing that. Hopefully the vid of us kicking Glory (hole) Girl will get plenty of views in the youtube equivelent and increase our recruitment.
>>2550543We probably already have a support base on /p/arahumans Anon.
Just upgrade the gas so it seems through people's pores instead of needing to be inhaled
>>2550497clown car joker mobile when?
>>2550548Once we visit Squealer.
>>2550547Wouldn't the gas get boring though? if we solved everything through the gas than how will we ever get any real fun out of this? Besides they'll probably start wearing skin tight full body suits
>>2550538Add in:>Giant Hammer made of our alloy can be charged to have a electric effect or a sprint to increase the stomping it does against enemies>Metal bat with two buttons one is blue othe is red. The red buttong make spikes push out of the bat while the blue one releases a shock like a cattle poker or a shock baton. The hilt is covered in rubber protecting the user
>>2550432pls remember to include armsmaster's arm as a requirement for letting the hostages go
>>2550538I'd totally be up for pocket dust that was literally just a zip lock bag full of chili powder.We also need a skin permeating version of SmileX. Or at least one that's harder to filter. IE: requires a specific counteracting agent soaked within the filter.Make our opponents work to not laugh
>>2550548When we finally have enough of Armsy's prosthetics to make it
>>2550547But that is the boring part. Beside once we use the gas they will start to try and counter it.
>>2550558THIS!I remember a anon earlier complaining about one quest that kept using pocket sand at every conflict and got boring.Let's just build one or 2 new weapons, it'll just take a turn or two.
I GOT ITA DART GUN THAT GIVES PEOPLE THE RUNSanyone up for poop jokes?
We dont need a big army.A group of Guerilla fighters should be able to do the job, we just need to keep doing it.Gas attack here, a few dead super nazis there, it will take time but chipping away at thier group is better than relying on a big old gang war.That said a few more helping hands would be nice.
>>2550563ArmMaster's arm has more space inside it than it takes up.We're a biochemical tinkerer at heart. We'd need help to make a clown car. I'd totally love a high speed clown car. Like a mini cooper hundreds of clowns pour out of.
>>2550538A kit for healing our mooks, ourself and of course when we get the chance to do SCIENCE like we did with Rebecca.
>>2550571A dart gun that gives people the shits would actually work really well for non-lethal. At the very least, they shat their pants out of the blue.
>>2550571Just use >>2550524 bang gun coated in poop poison or a toy cupid bow with the same thing.
>>2550574Don't worry if our buddies manage to break into the superjail we might be getting some increase in our numbers as well as some parahumans joining us.
>>2550574>helping hands>Not helping armsWhat are you even doing
>>2550571It's low comedy, but sometimes a man just needs to go back to the basics.
>>2550563We were never going to do that, we're going to make a statue of our face with the arms and his bike.
Zion pass out?
You step into view of the of the heroes stood outside the bank, leaning your side against the smashed open door and spinning your revolver in your hand. Assuming from the hushed gasps as you step outside, people are suitably amazed by your cool looks and nonchalant pose. The very large gun probably helps as well."ARMSYY! How are you doing buddy? It's been a while, what like three or four days. Hopefully long enough for you to make another arm?" You make a show of looking at his new arm, which clearly makes him rather uncomfortable."Yes... I have, though Dragon helped me with the design. That's irrelevant at the moment though, You'll not get any more of my arms. Not only is this one not magnetic, but I have developed countermeasures against your gas. You can't escape now."It is at this point that Assault chimes in with a conspiratorial stage whisper. "He used a contraction, that means he's super confident." Both you and Assault laugh at that, but no one else seems to. What a bunch of joyless assholes."Honestly Master-sans-Arm, you really need to calm down here. Because you see like always, I hold all the cards." You flip a card into your other hand at this and spin it, light flashing off of the jester engraved on the face of it. "I have hostages and minions, you have something I want but don't need. Let's negotiate. Just as an aside, Glory gal might be having some sort of allergic reaction to my gas, just thought I'd let you know before we got down to talking."Honestly you weren't expecting for the next response to come from a Ward but hey, whatever, you have all the time in the world. Kid Win asks "Why are you even doing this? It doesn't fit your MO."Armsmaster seems to be a bit put out by the interruption but stays silent as you answer.Might as well be honest, no need to deceive. Plus it makes you look good."I've got some guys going through the bank manager's books, the ones he doesn't show his bosses. The Empire is funnelling him money to launder, so I thought I'd turn up and steal some Nazi gold. It's all insured anyway, so the only people that get hurt are the folk working with Nazi's... Well, and GeeGee there in the back but she tried to beat me up a bunch so whatever."The assembled heroes are silent for a second before Armsmaster continues to berate you for doing entirely reasonable things."You know that there are better ways to do this? What you've done here delayed people, scared more and Distracted the Protectorate from actually fighting the gangs. You're wasting our time."[Nat 20 time]How dare he say something like that, that son of a bitch. For just a second you lose your temper, white hot fury coursing through your veins as your smile becomes a hideous snarl."NO! When was the last time you fought anyone except me!? When have you ever patrolled further than the Boardwalk? You lost to Lung and then you Holed yourselves up on The Rig. Cont
Oh i know what we are forgetting! >STICKY BOMBS! To stop those dam speedesters as well as to glue enemies tryong to persue us on the street imagine a bunch of police cars trying to chase us and we just throw a bomb that spray super sticky and harden glue to stop then in place.
>>2550586Not a robot made entirely out of his arms and named the "Master of Arms"?
Oh nevermind it's about to get good!
>>2550590Ooooooooooh. This is gettin good
>>2550592Only if we send it to ArmMaster immediately after it's finished to taunt him even further
>>2550590>"Why are you even doing this? It doesn't fit your MO."I'm disappointing we didn't reply with "You haven't learnt a thing, FUN is my MO."
>It doesn't fit your MOWait we have that?
>>2550612Up to this point, we've done a ton of shenanigansRobbing a bank with a crew is kinda out of the pattern.
>>2550616>Robbing a bank with a crew is kinda out of the pattern.Can't wait till they discover the punchline.
>>2550612Honestly them calling us predictable might be the worst insult we've ever received.
>>2550612Yeah, we're even doing it for what seems to be moneysomething we've never done before
>>2550612Walking around and Murdering/Running away from anyone that confronts us?
>>2550612A lot of our actions have been fucking with the gangs so this does match our MO. Has anyone learned about what we did to Victor other than the Nazis?
>>2550603That's kind of the point of building it, so of course we would send it to fight Armsmaster. It can even taunt him by flexing its "muscles".
>>2550620Agreed thank fuck they didn't get the rest of the joke yet.>>2550621Yeah we kinda never done that...but that is the fun part! If you don't seliver the punchline in the right time the joke won't be as funny.
>>2550625This is honestly the first time we're actually bringing the fight to anyone. Good times.>>2550620I concur. We should make a point that not having an overall MO is our primary MO.
>>2550626Don't think so, if they did they would be this blase with the banter.
>>2550590>Distracted the Protectorate from actually fighting the gangsheheheheheHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAOh man this punchline is gonna be beautiful.
>>2550634There was Victor, but he did shot first.Not like we were there for a friendly chat though.
I see alot of anons talking about the punchline, but do we actually have a end goal that robbing the bank enables?
>>2550644Breaking that artist outta jail
>>2550644Distracting the PRT so our gang members can free our artist friend.
>>2550646>>2550647oh shit i completely forgot about that, ignore my retardation
>>2550644Breaking out that dude hold up in PRT jail
>>2550644Mobile clinc to give medicine to all the folks who can't afford it. Possibly also a soup kitchen for the homeless.
>>2550650It's fine anon. I just hope our buddies can manage to to the break out.
>>2550652Do we know anyone that can cook?Cheap Meds make sense, but the soap kitchen might be over doing it.
>>2550652We need a pseudo clinic to do that. We walk aroubd grab someone that needs help and fix him or her. And god dammit i can't stop being worried about Reggie
>>2550658Pfff needs to be spicked with laughing gas and then I'll sign on
>>2550660We can cook. We did it pretty easily in the hospital last time.
>>2550590OHToo much medicine!
>>2550663Or we can start making joker related drugs to peddle to the small children of this wonderful city
>>2550666Shut up satan.
>>2550666Satan pls go
>>2550672>>2550666no. unnecessarily evil, we have clowns to play tricks on the kids after they get their treats, its funnier that way.
>>2550676But that gas feels good, thus sayeth Piper
>>2550666Satan you know the minimum posting age here is 14 right? pls stop.
>>2550590"I'm wasting your TIME! You wasted our lives! I got sawed into Pieces by the ABB, you don't get to talk about anything being wasted, except maybe your own potential... You know I used to look up to you Armsmaster! You were my hero, I wanted to be you! Even when after I lobotomised Stormtiger, I came to the PRT because I still had a little hope that I could be the tipping point, that I could help my family and others. That the World's greatest Tinker would understand. But you hunted me! For DEFENDING MYSELF! You're pacing now, gesticulating wildly with your pistol and ranting almost as fast as you can get the air into your lungs."Then you called me a villain! ME? I'm on the same level of Evil as Oni Lee and Hookwolf according to you idiots. Here's the lesson, you could've had me on your side if you'd lived up to the hype. If you'd been the heroes we needed you to be.""Well I'm sending a message now, and it starts here. I found some new friends and together we'll be REAL heroes, not cowards like you.""Me and my Maniacs, we're gonna clean up this city! We'll save everyone by driving the scum out into the bay. AND! WE! WILL! BE! LAUGHING!""Now you'll hand over Reggie and you'll let us go, Or I'll go through you. Armsmaster has experience with what that's like."Cont
Fuck, wrong DC series but I kinda want to do the whole "you have failed this city" bit
>>2550687Oh no I am being called a child best stop posting then
>>2550690Damn we are just laying into him
>>2550690Welp we gonna get more kids wanting to be crime clowns soon
>>2550690That's right Manic and the Maniacs will have the last laugh.
Well something tells me we are going to get more recruits thank to this heist.
>>2550690Called the fuck out. It's so beautiful it's almost enough to bring a man to tears.
>>2550690The hostages still have phones. And the city is gonna have this all over the internet within 24 hours. We need to hide our base better. Things are about to go bonkers, cuz that speech is also a declaration of war against all the gangs at the same time.
>>2550708Man how fucked up a world needs to be to have a pseudo Joker to be the hero. Maniac os the hero they need but not the hero they deserve!
>>2550690>I found some new friends and together we'll be REAL heroes,Aw god damn it. Why?!
>>2550717I mean that's how we've been playing this so far m8. like chaotic good
>>2550717Villain qsters btfo
>>2550717We are assaulting a bank and soon making a jail break while holding everyone attention to us. So far as they know we can always just be a crazy man that keep telling lies.
>>2550721No we weren't, we were playing him as chaotic neutral.I can't believe it was OP who put us into the anti-hero path.
>>2550717Oh yeah... that's probably gonna put some targets on us and others... that was a dumb thing to say.Well we're mad. Also we're definitely buying time for our team. I'd love for us to just make a joke in the getaway that makes that speech almost unneeded.>>2550717You realize that there are many heros in this universe who aren't... nice. If you wanted the opportunity to do a little more evil, it's available. But attacking people for the sake of attacking random people is certainly not our MO at least. At minimum we'd need some gain.
>>2550717Don't worry we can still cripple some heroes if they get in our way.
>>2550717What? It'll be fun killing gang bosses and destroying this hero organization.>>2550690I've only started reading worms but isn't this the point where hero's start to actually take us seriously? Like how villains server light sentences for a while before going to the birdcage but when they get out of line and do something over the line they get thrown straight into the BC? We've declared war on every hero, gang, and pretty much the entire system and that seems like we're going to have a lot of FUN
>>2550730Did you miss that paragraph in the opening post about how Barnaby still wants to be the hero?
>>2550717There ThereMaybe next time bro
>>2550730We're still pretty chaotic neutral. Our rant doesn't slot us 100% in the way we act.Nothing's stopping us from making an aerosolized poison that causes you to get the shits and holding the city hostage.
>>2550690>Well I'm sending a message now, and it starts here. I found some new friends and together we'll be REAL heroes, not cowards like you.>REAL heroesRIP villian anons :^)
>>2550734Can't wait for us to be broken and then sink into insanity and finaly go full villan. Lot's of heroes in worm lose their way after the time skip. Maniac having to deal with all the gangs and his molecular structure breaks will have a pretty fun ride.
>>2550742Damn there are still some Villianons who won't give up on this
>>2550726>So far as they know we can always just be a crazy man that keep telling lies.I really hope so, cause i have never wanted to play as a hero, just a guy who occasionally does good yet here we are declaring that we're a "real" hero.The greatest thing about this quest to me was that we were a near crazy guy who did heroic things by accident or at random.>>2550732>You realize that there are many heros in this universe who aren't... nice.Exactly, we we're a better hero even though we were just a new villain/normal person, now that entire joke is ruined.
>>2550742He's not held back by shitty hero ideas though. Like not killing. We're gonna deal with the city's shit permanently
>>2550747Isn't there a joker quest running for anons who want to be more villianous?
>>2550735Did you miss the "Wanted" part?>>2550736But when is next time? Cause i've been waiting for more than 2 years now to play another non-hero protagonist.
>>2550748What was the quote? Every idiot can call himself a king? Just because Maniac says he will be a hero doesn't mean he won't dive the thin line between villanous and heroic.
>>2550758You can always make you own joker quest anon.
>>2550748We're a better hero because everyone else is focused on themselves. Professional heros are focused on their careersVillains have few scruples and are carving the organs out of children. We're a late teenager and we had our arm cut off.We have our own vision for the city. We have our own decisions on how we pull it off. At best we have a gangster vendetta. Lets take care of that and work our way up from there.Dismantle the gangs. Dismantle the PRT. Bring our vision of the world to fruition. Having a positive reputation also means getting away with a tad more.Regardless, even if we escape this heist, we need to keep these assholes distracted until the breakout team gives us the mission completed.
The fact that people are so heavily against being a villain in a quest with an MC based on the Joker is really fucking weird to me.
>>2550765Don't really need too. You could always start one if this is such a deal breaker though.
>>2550760>But when is next time? Cause i've been waiting for more than 2 years now to play another non-hero protagonist.I don't want to be one of those guys, but the time is now anon. Make your own quest.
>>2550778that's not a come back... I don't even know what that is. I'm so confused.
>>2550773Honestly thought it was gonna be a villian quest but then being Chaotic good was so funny it stuck. I'm enjoying it either way.
>>2550773Welcome to qst. Also everyone tries to not go the villan route because it's edgy and mainstream and try to do something diferent. But it ends up becoming just another hero quest.
>>2550773Blame the telltale's vigilante joker. I think a lot of people were really impressed by that version.
>>2550760There will be other quests senpai, and please remember that this one isn't over.Keep hope alive mate and enjoy this ride for what it is and can be.
>>2550762>What was the quote? Every idiot can call himself a king?Exactly why i didn't want to call ourselves a hero! Now people are gonna be expecting heroics from us, and we're gonna disappoint them.>>2550772>We're a better hero because everyone else is focused on themselves. YES! That's why i'm saying we were a better hero by being ourselves, no one expected anything from us except another villain or madman. Now here we are declaring ourselves a better hero when we should 100% know we aren't.>>2550779I can definitely confirm i don't have what it takes to run a quest.
>>2550773With anons and their love for playing the good boy the best you can hope for is the MC being slighty gray in morality.
>>2550788I got nothing against doing villainous thingsBut poisoning civilians for no reason seems dumb. If we're a villain, it's for our own interests. It just so happens Maniac's motivation is REMOVE GANGSTER. This happens to be a "heroic" motivation as far as this city is concerned.>>2550793I think the city still sees us as a madman. I think the point is our villainy is still more heroic than their passively letting people suffer in the city. I like seeing Maniac as more MAD that what happened to him had happened. He got literally dissected. As far as "heroics" go, getting rid of the gangsters is ok.Plus we saved a random man's daughter for no reason. I somewhat hope our breakout team also saves Mr. Higgs
>>2550788Mate my hope for another fun quest where the protagonist does things for his own interests but occasionally does good has died so many times now i'm afraid to ever hope for such a quest again.Hell this quest rekindled that hope cause it started so strong and now i'm watching my last bit of hope i didn't even know i had disappear.
>>2550797I'd also like to remind people we're still breaking a ton of laws and robbing a bank. Several people have been shot in the crossfire between our minions and police forces.We aren't heros. We just want what we want, and we'll do it while going bonkers.
>>2550804What interests does Maniac have atm other than REMOVE THUGS and making the PRT look bad for being bad?
I just realized how ironic is that we want to get rid of the gangs but we are buildi g our own gang to do that. We are already every metal gear villain.
>>2550806We really need to kidnap the therapist of the PRT.
>>2550806I mean we can still be a "hero" and break laws, that is what chaotic good is.
>>2550811Get a girlfriend. Before he wanted friends but now he already got the crew and the undersiders for that.
>>2550812Our gang is different,we are building a happy gaggle of jokers to bring laughter and joy to the world.By any means necessary.
I guess what you all are saying is true. Qst has always had an audience that likes being the good guy. I just thought that a quests so clearly based on one if the most iconic villains of all time would attract a somewhat different audience. In any case I'll keep enjoying the quest. I like worm, and the quests has been fun so far.
>>2550811To fix his body.
>>2550812But our plans make sense and isnt a bunch of crazy bullshit that makes no sense. Or extreme misinterpretations of our mentor/mothers dream
>>2550815No girlfriend please, im sick of anons forcing the MC to fugg the first acceptable chick to stand in for their own crippling loneliness. but its gonna happen anyway
>>2550804You understand that 'Herosim' means completely different things to different people. Look at GG for instance. To her Bad guys are bad guys and that's it. no reason to say we can't commit so much vilany we end up not an anti-hero. Anyway, our heroism speech could just be really good smokescreen/recruitment tool/psycological warfare thing.personally I don't much care what direction we go if it leads to Manic being king of Brockton Bay. Out-Coiling Coil will be fun. Also so long as we don't go full stupid evil. Those are my only caveats
>>2550797>Plus we saved a random man's daughter for no reason. I somewhat hope our breakout team also saves Mr. HiggsYep, which is why it was so great cause we did that while people thought of us as a villain, it was completely out of left field for them.I just didn't want Barnaby to suddenly announce himself as a hero, i wanted him to stay as this kid who's still insecure about himself and everything going around him, and to eventually realize that behind the mask of heroes is still just another human.
>>2550818We didn't choose to RP as Joker. It's not about being good or evil, but getting the best out of the setting.
>>2550827>You understand that 'Herosim' means completely different things to different people.Yes, and i wanted the protagonist to realize that in the future too, to realize he didn't need to be a hero to do good, or to be a villain to do bad.
>>2550829you have a good point. It does seem slightly out of character to just go "Whooptydoo its all just a meme, im really a good guy, honest". A little stupid even. I wouldn't mind if the QM redacted that but at the same time its WE who make the character and guide his decisions. So nothing is really lost.
>>2550825Qm won't rest until we have a Harley Quinn
I just wanted chaotic neutral joker, not Hero joker or villain Joker.
>>2550832who says he can't? Who says this defines him? Do you honestly think this character won't change as the story progresses?. Perhaps this is exactly what needs to happen to help him realise that.
>>2550836Correction, Players won't rest until we have a Harley Quin
>>2550837We've been doing to much good and things that don't do us any good to be neutral
>>2550837Im sorry but Anons love playing the same character over and over and saying that hes "totally ambigious" when hes not.
>>2550837We are chaotic Neutral though, we kill people when we have to, we chopped up a guy and but his living head in a box, we steal a guy's arm for shits and giggles, and we do things that a hero shouldn't. It's our own idea of hero, such as when a villain thinks he's doing his own form of "Good"
>ITT Anons overreact to one line
>>2550843Qm demands that his joker quest be completed
>>2550837Don't wprry anon we can always lose our goals do to insanity.Sacrifice a couple of lives to save thousands and all that.
>>2550834I really hope QM just has us go "Gotcha, i was just pulling your leg" at the end of this speech.>>2550838Maybe, i just don't want to announce to the world something we aren't gonna succeed in or even plan to do, and then disappoint them.
>>2550850Meh more like doing something to pass the time until the Qm updates.
>>2550854Jeez man, stop bitching. We get it.
>>2550848Yeah but chaotic neutral won't care about other people all that much, they are a purely for them self kind of people
>>2550850It happensThis quest was due for a shitstorm anyway.
Um you guys do remember we took a guy, mutilated him, chopped off his fucking head, put it in a device /that kept him alive/, and mailed that shit in a jack in the box for shit's and giggles right?Like, we might be /heroic/ compared to the literal Nazi's, human traffickers, and drug dealers that abduct children just to forcibly get them hooked on the stuff, but we sure as fuck ain't playing nice.
>>2550854Why do you care so much about other people expectations? Also we can always play the joker and start saying differe t stories for thing that we are doing. On one time we cot our arms cut on the other was our tongue. On one time we say we want to be the real heroes on the other we say we want to have all the city under out thumbs. Just play the wildcard angle
>>2550850Trust me when i say i saw one line almost ruin a quest before, QM made our protagonist do something completely our of character just because it was the evil option.
>>2550863Chaotic people can be brutal and do illegal things, no one is saying we are good
Anons keep saying we're chaotic neutral, and that was the plan from the start, but clearly it wasn't. We haven't taken a single undeniably evil or even bad action on purpose this entire quest. Literally every choice we've made, at worst could be considered neutral. I'm honestly shocked that its this surprising that the QM would consider us heroic when all we've done is be heroic. We've been a unambiguously good vigilante since the start.
>>2550863Buts thats how it starts with all the anti-hero MCs, they start being evil and then as the quest goes on they out of nowhere become the good guy like everyother quest.
>>2550860Ehhhhh.It's more they care for their own. Hell I'm totally up for for kidnapping Panacea to help fix ourselves up ( though she probably can't do much with how weird our cells are )plus the jack in the box thing we did. Again.Regardless, we can continue doing whatever we want. Kicking a child and stealing their lolipop followed by putting together a puppy petting zoo.Regardless, our actions have been more heroic than the PRT. That's very very obvious. And we're rubbing their faces in it.
>>2550873>AnonsIt's literaly just one guy.
>>2550854And I wish new Evo threads got off the ground more often. We can't always get what we want, we can only try to. So start thinking about you can get this quest doing something you enjoy rather than complaining that it isn't.
To say we're the good guy, and that were better then the people try to help as part of the protectorate is cognitive dissonance. Hopefully we can become more self aware.
>One line.>Anons have existential discussion.I just thought he was, you know, a pissed off teen who finally snapped at adults and did the thing all teens do. Say they can do better when they really can't. It's easy to go and point out all the flaws in the heros but when push comes to shove I think Manic will be like "Oh fuck. I have no idea what I got into" once he calms the fuck down.
>>2550886We are crazy...we will never do that.
>>2550886Yeah, we can be whoever we won't and we don't have to listen to this Anon. Lets just play the way it flow and be our good guy, the way we see fit
>>2550869>Why do you care so much about other people expectations?Because out of all the thing we've done/talked about doing, this is the one thing that makes the inner moralfag in me come out. Being a disappointment to people is the one thing i don't want to do as the Joker.>Also we can always play the joker and start saying differe t stories for thing that we are doing. On one time we cot our arms cut on the other was our tongue. On one time we say we want to be the real heroes on the other we say we want to have all the city under out thumbs. Just play the wildcard angleSure, that sounds like fun.
>>2550889We aren't crazy though, we're Barnaby, we're a guy with a problematic shard. Don't go defining the character with baseless ideas
>>2550888Again it's just one guy. I don't care about being villanous or heroic i just want to do whatever we want to do. And make cool gadgets.
>>2550837make a good case for us doing bad things, like the plan we have right now (robbing a bank isnt what heroes do), and people will vote for it. Its just that when making a choice, normal fucking people will try to steer the outcome to a good one if it A) doesnt cost them anything, or B) If they can use it as leverage in some other situation. Literally everything we have done is either for the laughs or because anons are normal people who vote for well rounded and well thought out options.Not to mention one line wont define us. We are Manic, nobody really knows whats our alibi anyways.>>2550854that would actually be in character. and so would our choice to ignore one god damn line of dialogue.>>2550873fair enough.>>2550869precisely.>>2550888I agree, this is what is most probably going to happen in the near future. though I would imagine the choice will be more up to us, since we are a large part of what Barnaby thinks and feels.
>>2550882You're right.>>2550870Honestly I recommend you either move on, start your own quest (even though you've stated you can't), or vote evil options, because clearly the majority want to be heroic, no matter how ambiguous they want it to seem
>>2550886Not much of one, the BB branch of the protectorate is deliberately undermanned and underfunded. To explain why is a bit of Worm spoiler territory, but if you really want to know it's because the 'Powers that be' want to see what happens when a Parahuman organization gets in charge of a major city.If the BB branch can stay the course and keep control in spite of everything, good. If it can't then they'll just use the data to see how Parahuman Feudalism would operate for future use elsewhere.When Maniac says they aren't doing all they could be, he's not lying. It's just that he doesn't know that they've been deliberately defanged to the point where the area they patrol is literally all that they /can/ defend instead of the whole city like they're normally supposed to.
To be honest I'm not sure what people expected. The only way to be chaotic neutral in this type of setting is to be a jokester mercenary, and no one wanted to join up with the Slaughterhouse cause it was "too edgy".News flash, Chaotic Neutral characters are edgy by default. They do whatever, whenever, who cares why.I can understand villianfags being upset, but no one here actually wants to be CN.Not to say the character can't change, or I even dislike the current path, I'm just not sure what everyone else was thinking.
>>2550920I'm up for CN. Just not being evilul. we have goals and an organization now.
>>2550890>>2550901>Lets just play the way it flow and be our good guy, the way we see fit>I don't care about being villanous or heroic i just want to do whatever we want to do. And make cool gadgets.>Mfw i've been recommending that from the start.
>>2550920Slaughterhouse isn't Chaotic Neutral. They are just plain Evil, and in fact super fuckin edgy.
>>2550928>great posts can and will be ignored in favor of outrageous and retarded argumentsWelcome to 4chan my friend. Just remember, no matter what the brainlets on any given board tell you, you're still on 4chan.
>>2550928what a riveting realization.what was it you were upset about again? committing to a hero path? we haven't committed to jack so far, Barnaby has.we can assume direct control
>>2550928Well, you obviously do care about the heroism thing, cause ya just threw a hissy fit about it. Now stop talking about it and let Zion finish his writing.
>>2550920What if we just go Chaotic, period. Fuck edgy Evil, fuck overdone Good, fuck irritating Neutral. Just Chaotic. Literally all we have to keep doing is anything we feel like doing, regardless of morality, but also continue tinker stuff. Easy.>>2550908>the 'Powers that be' want to see what happens when a Parahuman organization gets in charge of a major city>is a bit of Worm spoiler territoryIt's fucking Coil. It's always fucking Coil.
>>2550937Fair enough.>>2550938>we can assume direct controlSpooky.
>>2550928You should have explained yourself better. It looked like you were more upset about us saying we are a hero then anything.
>>2550940Surprisingly no. Like I said, spoilers, but I can tell you he's a symptom of the problem, not the actual disease itself.
>>2550926>>2550934And now we come to the route of the problem.I'm not sure what you guys think Chaotic Neutral means, but being afraid to get "super edgy" and "Goals and Organization" isn't really conducive to the play style.It can work sure, but as soon as we start telling ourselves what we WON'T do, we start boxing ourselves in to either heroic or villainous actions.
>>2550940alignments are gay confirmed. we gotta bring fa/tg/uys the good news.
>>2550888Yea, that's also my interpretation of registration and my hope for the story.
good lord we are wasting our bump limit with this pointless argument on the Manic's moral compass. The Manic is whatever the fuck he wants and that's whatever the QM and the Majority decides on, and newsflash read the first fucking post on this thread
>>2550949https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3h8ZnXLsRg>>2550952>>2550960Okay yeah, it's been a while since I read all of Worm. It's fucking Cauldron. Yeah. Literally behind everything.>>2550888Also this.
>>2550940It just leads to Chaotic Good.Trust me.
>>2550962So what kind of mutant we will be turning Reggie into? I say make him a bruiser and power him up with a couple of gadgets.
>"Don't use Discord! All discussion should be had in thread!"And this is what we get.
>>2550973>So what kind of mutant we will be turning Reggie into? I say make him a bruiser and power him up with a couple of gadgets.Anon...
>>2550977Oh i like that.
>>2550975Im glad this shit is hopefully resolved instead of just simmering in the discord between 2-4 autists. Besides, all the discussion should be on record, so this shit doesn't get retarded
>>2550981We can fix him!
>>2550975Whats the point on going to another disscusion thread when were already on a disscusion thread?
>>2550977Got to make sure he can switch it on and off. Makes it more of a benefit if he can get a date without having to attract a furry.
>>2550975Ya say that like it's a bad thing
>>2550983Wait, noCYBORG Were-Hyena. With shoulder mounted grenade launchers for long distance smile gas deployment. They can't counter it if they don't know it's coming.
>>2550962>and newsflash read the first fucking post on this threadDude it says "wanted to be a hero", it implies our hopes of being a hero died.
>>2550973What to we reward Pipper with for being a good girl this mission?A custom outfit?A Pipe made if our special metal?A deep tonguing?
>>2550997All of the above? I mean she's really been the MVP of this whole op if we're going to be honest.
>>2550991If we're turning Reggie into some unholy abomination, we should have the common decency to at least lobotomize him first
