"And that's how it all happened! You did it! YOU DID IT, YOU BASTARD!"BREAK!---"Well... um..."The true killer... no, too humanizing. Such filth doesn't deserve to be called human. This vile creature before you is nothing but putrid trash. The putrid trash stammers, as the rest of the room grows quiet... save the GODDAMN FURBALL on the judge's stand, maniacally laughing. What you wouldn't do to rip its head off."But... aren't there still problems?"You slam your podium, wishing you were strong enough to crack it. And while you're at it, crack the heads of everyone in this room."WHAT FUCKING PROBLEMS?!" You scream without even looking up to see whose disgusting voice that was. "It's CUT AND GODDAMN DRY! Must I explain it AGAIN to you damn BUFFOONS?!""Pl-please, get a hold of yourself!""J-just take a deep breath...""Would she want you to be this broken up?"That last comment is the fiftieth last straw to have broken your back alone today. Your hand is beginning to bleed from how many times you've slammed it as hard as you could today. Maybe a few more times would break your bones."DON'T YOU EVER TALK ABOUT HER! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT SHE'D WANT!"The voice grows quiet. You can't see through your tears. All you want is to be the one to throttle the life out of the one who took your reason to live."He's not listening to us...""Ah, screw it. Yep, you got me!"You pause... then laugh. And laugh. And laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh-"But I was just doing as I was told!"You stop. No more laughter."Who.. WHO TOLD YOU?! I'LL KILL THEM, LIKE I WILL YOU!""Sorry, he told me not to spill the beans!"That infuriating grin is all that stands out about the filth's face. You can't contain yourself anymore. You can't wait for the execution. This is something you must do yourself.You vault the podium, and do a running tackle at it to the ground, your hands in a death grip around its throat."YOU KILLED HER!"You scream to the high heavens as it struggles and struggles. All you can see is red. Blood red. Blood that you wish you could spill, but considering how she died, perhaps strangulation will be a good, ironic follow-up.You feel people pull on you. You resist as hard as you can, but eventually, you're pulled off right as it's done struggling."NO! LET ME GO! I'M SO CLO-"Something smacks you in the back of the head, hard.(continued in post 2)I should mention, this is my first quest. No need to be gentle with me, I can't learn with sugarcoated criticism.
You can't even place what you're dreaming about. Blood. Gore. Her face. Love. Abduction. Betrayal. Her face. Murder. Retribution. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her face. Her fa-Something brings you to reality with a splash. It feels warm, tastes metallic, and you can tell it's red... yep, you were splashed awake with blood. Who else could it be but-"Aight, kid. You know what you did fully well."A light comes on. It's the oh-so-familiar half-white, half-dark creature."What? Who else did you expect other than THE Monomausu?"The annoyingly smug rodent showboats to an invisible audience. God, what you wouldn't do if you weren't chained to the chair. This piece of shit, forcing everyone into this life and acting like it's everyone else's fault that these tragedies occur... You'd do anything to break this thing once and for all, consequence-free."Okay, enough glarin' daggers at me, kid. I know my face is handsome, but I'll stop bein' eye candy for the moment."With that, he pulls out a clipboard with a paper. He offers it to you... before remembering you're chained up. He pulls out a key, does a choking motion, and then a throat-slicing motion. You get the feeling you know what he means: Don't try anything.He unlocks your chains, freeing you. You want to give in so bad to your rage, you want to just beat the stuffing out of him... but you can't. You can't muster up the courage.You take the clipboard, and read it:"I, the Ultimate Spokesman, hereby confess to my interference with a class trial. I shall be held accountable for my actions and accept my punishment gracefully."There's a line for your signature. A voice in your head nags you to call his bluff, but... you can't. You have to do as you're told. Why...?"No backtalk? Damn, that's some potent stuff I injected you with."...Of course. You're not even surprised by how dirty he plays. You take the pen, and write...Welcome to Danganronpa Quest! I'm the tutorial box, nice to meet you! Now, kindly name our hero.

You finish writing your name, and hand the clipboard back to Monomausu."Good, good. You've succeeded in your first step. Now to recall every other physical trait of yours, from sex to height to weight to measurements to hair color to hair thickness to body fat percentage to-"Oh god, your head feels like it's about to split open."...Just kidding. I'm not that cruel... or am I?"He pulls out another syringe, this one filled with a strange white liquid, pushes it a bit to get rid of the air, and goes behind you. Your heart races as you wonder what the liquid is."Alright, kid. Threetwoone!"He injects it into your spine. The pain is overwhelming, as he injects some fluid into it. Your headache intensifies, you let out a scream.Your body feels like it's about to shut down. Your heart hammers away for what may be the last time, your hair stands up on end, you grit your teeth so hard that they feel like they're about to break...You...You.........remember everything.DANGANRONPA QUEST PRELUDEEND

Shit im fucking dumb. Sorry for forgetting to remove the name. Firefox autofills it.
That's right, now you remember! Ah, your passion! You don't mean to toot your own horn, but you get really into your speeches. Sometimes, you even move yourself to tears. Though, some say you're hotheaded.You walk through the field of daisies, and reach the entrance. You can see the students walking, getting ready for their classes. Just what kind of people will you meet, you wonder. Who are your fellow Ultimates? Hell, even the reserve course students might be interesting and pleasant people! This is your new life, right here, and nothing can take it from you!...So you think as you take your first step.And it begins.You grow dizzy, and collapse on a knee. None of the passing students take heed. You can barely hold on... what's happening to you?Your last thoughts are if you're still getting into New Hope's Peak if you faint on the first day.
You come to in a classroom. Well, you think it's a classroom because you're in a desk.What it actually looks like is a warzone.The room is scorched, as though someone went nuts with a flamethrower in here. You can faintly smell... flesh? Is that burned flesh you smell?! It's sickening to imagine.Resisting your urge to vomit, you decide to investigate the room. On first glance, you notice cameras at the corners of the room. You wonder if you're being watched. On your left are giant metal plates, covering the wall. Around the room are various scorch marks. To the right, you see a door. Nothing unusual there. In front of you, a chalkboard. And of course, there's the desks, including the one you woke up in.That about covers every point of interest. But where to begin...?Happy to see you so soon! In Danganronpa Quest, you will occasionally need to solve a puzzle in a room to proceed. Oh, spoiler alert: That door is locked! You're gonna have to figure out how to open it. Check every corner of the room for clues! By which I mean investigate the room, and then figure out what to do with what you have! I'll make it easy for you this time and tell you what you can investigate, so you get an idea of what you can do in the future. Good luck!>Investigate cameras>Investigate iron plates>Investigate scorch marks>Investigate door>Investigate chalkboard>Investigate desks
>>2634402>Investigate the desksLet's start off with something standard like looking for notes that may be left behind.
>>2634415Indeed we should.
>Investigate the desksYou take a look at the desks. The first thing you notice is the formation. Four in the back, three in the front. You woke up in the second from the left desk in the back. The next strange thing you notice is... they're pristine. Why is the rest of the room so badly damaged when these desks are so clean?You take another look at the desk you woke up in, checking it from every angle... and find a note taped under the chair! You pull it out and it reads:A Tea You Skew!Ms Insane Ken Eve...Sounds like nonsense to you. You check the other desks for similar items, and find nothing else. What next?>Same prompts as previousSorry for forgetting to mention, but first post wins for these sections. For speed's sake, considering you'll likely check them all.

>Investigate the scorch marksYou take a look at the scorch marks. Every one of them. The smell grows stronger the closer you get to some of them....Strangely, there's no ashes to be found. With how badly the room is burned, you'd think there's be evidence of things being torched to cinders, right? So how come...?>Same prompts as last time
>>2634437>>Investigate iron plates
>Investigate chalkboardYou take a look at the chalkboard. You see a strange, half-white, half-black mouse on it, wearing a graduation outfit and holding a pointer, which aims at the words:Monomausu's Lesson: AnagramsAnagrams are words that rearrange into new words. If you look back where you started, you'll find something very relevant. I'll give you one on the house:Seek a way out!...You realize that it makes sense, when you rearrange the letters on the note in your head. But what could the second mean...? Maybe with some guesswork, you might figure it out. Doesn't hurt to try, the only thing you could lose right now is time.You now have access to your first roll challenge! Not all puzzles have to be figured out by investigating, sometimes they can be brute-forced! Either by luck, or inputting your own answer!

>Investigate iron platesThey seem to be covering something. Try as you might, however, they just won't come off... although, the one on the right is just the slightest bit loose. However, you know you'd pull a muscle at best, trying to rip it off with your bare hands.But on closer inspection, you can see a 9 engraved on it. Interesting...>Same as previous list
>Investigate camerasYou take a look at the cameras. The thought of them having recorded you sleeping is... unsettling, to say the least.You notice that the left camera has a number on the lens, upon closer inspection: 7.>Same as previous list
>Investigate the doorYou take a look at the door, grabbing the handle and twisting... only to discover it's locked. That would be too easy, wouldn't it?There's nothing else you can tell about the door.You run over all the clues in your head again once more. There's a 7 on the lens of the camera. There are seven desks. There's a 9 on the slightly loose plate. The room and desks are surprisingly clean, stench and signs of scorching aside.The only remaining loose thread is this second anagram.

What was the other number...Nine!M sa Ke Seven Nine. What do the last words make...Makes!The words are Seven, Nine, and Makes. But what's the order...?You look at the seven chairs again. These must be the seven they talk about, but the nine... what could the nine be...?>Write-inIf this is too obtuse, remember you have a free hint!
>>2634519Hm. Nothing has been numbered as nine so far. Seven plus nine is 16, means nothing for us. I say we do nine minus seven and check out desk number 2.
>>2634531>>2634519Worth a try
>>2634532I feel its very likely wrong. But the "makes" is what causes me to think there is some form of calculation involved. Dividation doesnt give us a even number and multiplication gives us a too high number, and so does addition. So there is proboably something to do with the number two going on.
>Check out desk #2You take a look at the desk you woke up in, and the desk next to it. If you start from the rear where you woke up in, those are the two you'll end up with.Alas, you find nothing. You investigate the front-middle desk. Like before, you find nothing... until you sit in it. Something lands on your head, on top of your flattened ahoge: a piece of paper.You take a look at it. It appears to be a nine, but with odd spaces...>Write-in.Don't worry, that wasn't your hint. Just a reward for catching us off-guard! Who's "us," you ask? Oh, don't worry about it.
>>2634543"Seven makes nine" - 7 desks arranged like the a digital 9 (pic related). Except for that bent one, which makes the whole thing look off. Maybe aligning it with the other desk next to it would reveal something.
>>2634583That bent desk isn't a desk, it's a chair.
>7 desks arranged like a 9You immediately get to work, moving a desk here, a desk there, and so on, and so on. You even get the awkward seventh chair.You hear something drop on the other side of the room. The camera with a 7 on its lens has a hatch open, and below it... a key!You take it, and head to the door, key in hand. You unlock it...ESCAPE COMPLETE!---You take one last look at the room behind you. There was still the mystery of the plate, the scorching...Are you done here? You can always come back later.>Go out>Stay in a little longer>>2634587It actually is a desk, I just didn't remember how to make diamond shapes in MS Paint
>>2634596>Go out.We have no reason to stay here. Unless we want to take a table leg or something as a weapon, which I don't think fits with a auditor.
>>2634596>Go outThings to do, people to meet, and so on.
>Go out.You elect to head on out already. Hopefully this was all an elaborate prank, and you'll be surprised by your fellow Ultimates. One hell of a hazing ritual. You adjust your microphone tie, your favorite, and walk on out...---You find yourself in a large, derelict-looking, round room. There are 18 doors, one at the end of a hallway, another at the opposite end. One of the doors, you have just emerged from.Immediately afterwards, another door opens... and another... and another.A variety of faces look around the room, none of them familiar. Were these your fellow freshmen...?If so, that can only mean one thing: This isn't a hazing ritual, this is a hazing blood pact with the devils!... so to speak.And then, once the door closed behind the final student to emerge... everyone spoke at once."Who are you people?""You cats alright?""Huh.""I may have a theory for what's going on!""My, my, fancy meeting you all here.""Goodness, what is this place?""I'm surrounded by beautiful women!""I'm talking too, SIRS!"That's about all you can understand with your above-average hearing skills. It's a mess, to say the least.Then, an arm slings across your back. To your right, you see a young man with hair like an ash pile, a few missing teeth, and... a pin of a bear on his vest?"Yooo, dude. How's it hanging?">"Not much, homeslice. You?>"Uh. Okay, I guess.">"Please keep your hands to yourself."
>>2634627>Uh. Okay, I guess.
>>2634627>"Not much, homeslice. You?
>>2634627>>"Not much, homeslice. You?"
>>2634627>Uh, Okay, I guess.
>>2634627>>"Not much, homeslice. You?
"Not much, homeslice. You?"You adapt quickly to this lad's way of speaking, and even offer a fistbump on top of that. He gratefully accepts it with a grin."Doin' sick now! Always good to have a bro 'round, know what I'm saying?"This guy is cool in your book just by attitude alone. It's nice to have friends... even though you don't even know his name."Hey, what's your name? I'm Will.""I'm-"The talking just grows in volume."You put us up to this, didn't you?!""No, it had to be him!""I didn't do jack."And so on, and so on."Hey, Will, might wanna get 'em to calm their tits, my man."You believe that's a good call. You walk to the center of the room, and clear your throat."May I have your attention, please!"A few people turn, but most of them still bicker."I said, your attention, PLEASE!"This time, everyone listens."Before all else, one must have a plan, my fellow Ultimates! If we continue squabbling among ourselves, we shall get nothing but misery! And therefore, I have a proposal!"You decide your plan will be...>Introducing ourselves and winging it from there>Making good with each other before anything else>Accusing someone at random just for kicks
>>2634708>Introducing ourselves and winging it from there
>>2634708>Making good with each other before anything else.
"Now, not all plans are meticulously crafted. Some are simple, such as this one! I believe that starting off small makes it easier to go big, and reap huge rewards! Let us all introduce ourselves! I shall start: I am Will Alison Frank, the Ultimate Spokesman. Let us introduce ourselves in an orderly fashion."The students form their own groups. Names are exchanged, hands are shaken, eyebrows are raised, backs are turned. Could be better, could be worse.You notice a few students lingering around, looking for someone to interact with. Perhaps you should start with...>The white-haired girl with striking red eyes>The handsome man with a cane and crimson suit>The man in a trenchcoat and fedora>The grumpy-looking shrine maiden
>>2634727>The man in a trenchcoat and fedora.

>>2634727>The white-haired girl with striking red eyesI'll change to this
>The white-haired girl with striking red eyesYou decide to approach the nigh-albino looking girl. While her complexion is pale, she's not THAT pale, it seems.As you approach, she notices you, stands up straight, and...puts on a small mask?"So, Sir Will himself comes before me?" She lets out a noble-sounding "Ohohoho" as she poses, her ringlet curls swooshing back as she throws her head back to laugh. "Then allow me to return to honor of introducing myself! My name is Akanishi Soho!"AKANISHI SOHOUltimate Opera PerformerYou recall her being one of the Ultimates you researched upon receiving your letter. "By some chance, weren't you the lead actress of I Want To Be Your Dove?"She laughs once more. "Ah, my reputation exceeds me! You flatter me, Sir Will! I am all too honored to meet you."She offers her hand, and you graciously take it and shake it. "Oh, feel free to do something more... gentlemanly."Is... is she really...?>Kiss her hand>Shake with both hands>Don't chance itGonna go sleep, will be back on in 6-8 hours, hopefully. Feel free to leave any criticism while I snooze.

>>2634971>Kiss her hand
>>2634971>Kiss her handAnd now I'm picturing us as a young Toshiro Mifune, and none of you can stop me.
>Kiss her handShe asks, and you must oblige. It's the right thing to do, right? You lean down, and quickly plant a kiss on the back of her hand, before releasing it.Another noble sounding laugh from her is let out as you stand up straight once more. "Ohohohoho! One cannot help but feel charmed by such chivalry! I believe we shall be wonderful friends, you and I!"...She's blushing a little but is otherwise completely unfazed. That's amazing. So this is the talent of an actress..."Now, even though it seems I am the lead performer, I cannot hog the limelight, no? I implore you to meet everyone else, Sir Will!""Good call. See you around, Akanishi."You decide to even give a dramatic bow, to which she responds with a flourish and pose of her own.---Who next...?>Same options as before.Thanks for your patience, everyone.>>2635509Needs more ahoge. And the microphone tie. Can't forget the microphone tie.

>The man in a trenchcoat and fedoraYou decide to approach the edgy looking man next. You can overhear him saying something."Sideways...ahoge's...name...is...Will... there."He then rips something off that sounds paper like, when you tap him on the shoulder."EGADS!" He flinches before turning around, his hazel eyes changing from a surprised look to a more reserved look. "Oh, it's just you. Please don't scare me like that."He then... eats a piece of paper and swallows it. Eughhh."Sorry, just getting your name memorized. A pleasure to meet you, my name is Shin-n...ahem, Shin Komatsuzaki!... pardon that stutter."SHIN KOMATSUZAKIUltimate Detective"With that said.

Whales. You know what has great whale watching? Europe!"You note that if you ever want to go whale watching."Did you know that each country of Europe has their own capital of culture? And what's Germany's? The answer is Berlin! Berlin is widely known for their wall. The Berlin wall of course. The wall came to symbolize the "Iron Curtain;" an imaginary boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of World War II! The important thing to note here is there are two wings to this map. There is the left wing of Western Europe, and the right wing of Eastern Europe and Russia. Speaking of wings..."You're not sure if this is your time to interject.>Tell him to shut up already>Ask him to stop>Let him keep goingI'm so sorry, I fell asleep at my computer.

>>2637738>Let him keep goingI fucking knew it.
>Let him keep going...Why do you feel like you're about to regret this?"Ten wings was a book inscribed by the chinese philosopher Confucius. This book was also known as I Ching. This book just so happened to be part of the "Five classics" in the 2nd century BC. One of the books in this list is "Spring and Autumn Annals" A two season difference. The book describes events in that time period. 11 of these events describe a plague of locusts. Remember that 11, it will be important later."You doubt that."In the Book of Exodus pp. 10: 13-15 it states... And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt... And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt. Speaking of Moses and the rod. After the events of Moses, all Egyptian temples contained a rod in rememberance for his miracles. Specifically the temples of Isis. Isis just so happens to be the goddess of health marriage and wisdom. Her worship wasn't exclusive to Egypt though. In later years her worship spread through the Roman empire after Julius Caesar's death. One man specifically regarded her as their protector. And that man is Galerius Valerius Maximianus. During his reign he aided Diocletian against the Sassanid Empire. The Sasanian empire was founded by Ardashir I. At the most powerful point in history, the empire encompassed all of Iran, Irag, Arabia, ect. Including parts of central Asia, and that includes Uzbekistan. To be specific it's capital is Tashkent. This capital was destroyed by Genghis Khan. In 1219 it was rebuilt and profited by the silk road! In the 2nd millenium BCE many things were traded on the silk road.One of these things happen to be the Balas Ruby! Just what are these Balas Rubies? A balas ruby is usually colorless however there is one other color it CAN be..."He stop, before pointing dramatically!"AND IT'S BLUE!"Well, you gotta give him points for dramatic effect."A famous ruby we know of is the Timur ruby. These rubies were in the british crown jewels. They are all inscribed with the name and dates of the previous owners. The second being Akbar.His name translating to "The great." He was born in 1542. Another man who was born in 1542 was... Jakob Cristoph Blarer von Wartensee!"You regret your every life decision that lead up to this moment.(continued in next post)
"This man was the Bishop of Basel. The Diocese of Basel is a Roman Catholic church in Switzerland. The important thing to note here is that the seat of the Bishop of Basel is in Solothurn. This city was founded in 1218. An event that also happened on 1218 was... A movement in order for Pope Honorius to reverse Pope Innocent III's judgement to let the kingdom of Leon inheret a feif. Specifically Pope Innocent III, he was the one to forge the Fourth Crusade.The fourth crusades idea was the conquer Muslim controlled Jerusalem. The attack came down to destroying the Galata tower. The tower was rebuilt in the year 1348. In that year was when the bubonic plague made its way to England through the Bristol channel. The Bristol channel just so happen to have flooded in the year 1607. A lesser known flooding was in the year 1451. Who was born in the year 1451?Christopher Columbus! The year he set off for his voyage in the year 1502. Who else was born in the year 1502? Pope Gregory XIII! And his motto being "Aperuit et clausit." Or in english;OPEN AND CLOSED! This single handedly proves you were the one to do the crime!"You wait for him to continue."...That was it.""Okay, so you just pulled a bunch of fun facts out of your ass to connect me to the crime without evidence. Thank you for wasting my time."He stands there, looking smug, before you realize."Wait, THERE IS NO MURDER!"He laughs heartily, before settling himself down. "Well, you played along with it for ten seconds. Hell of an ice breaker anyway, right?"You do your best to give him a look that screams "what the fuck is wrong with you." He responds just by smiling and adjusting his tie."Well, I'll just. Run along now," you decide out loud, not wanting to get hit by another theory."Yeah, you've got people to meet, right? So long, Will."---Your head still hurts. What a mistake that was. Maybe the next Ultimate will be less painful.>The handsome man with a cane and crimson suit>The grumpy-looking shrine maiden
>>2637798>The handsome man with a cane and crimson stuff.That was a wild ride. Let's do that again some time.
>>2638164Yeah, its also a great take on a ultimate detective. Shin is 'new' best girl.

Wait a second, he's approaching you first!"Good day to you, Mr. Frank. My name is Ryuusei Himura, some call me the Crimson Shooting Star."RYUUSEI HIMURAUltimate CasanovaYou've heard of this man's work in the times you've dabbled in the pick-up artist community. Praises of being "alpha as fuck" and hazes of "fucking Chad" were sang about him daily, but what got him into the mainstream?"Same author of Be Yourself Plus One, right?"He smiles, before twirling and striking a pose. "But of course, my friend! It's nice to know I have a fan.""Hey, now," you say, "you've sold half a million copies! You've probably got fans all over the globe!" You decide to not mention the many, er, "rees" that were screamed behind his back.You realize that he's stunned. You assume it's just realization of his achievement, but then you notice a bead of sweat dropping. "Uh, Ryuusei? Everything alright?"He takes a moment, before wiping it off with his glove. "Yes, excuse me. Let us move on. If I may get your opinion on something, what part of my book helped the most? I'm thinking about moving my business to a podcast, or perhaps even a talk show.

>How to present yourself"It gave me good pointers on how to put myself out there. It's not just good for my work as a speech giver, it just feels nice to be my best possible self. Is that a good answer, Ryuusei?"He nods to himself as he listens, before smiling as you finish your answer. "That, my friend, is a fantastic answer. Thank you very much." He bows, before taking a more serious tone. "I trust you remember the last passage of that chapter, though?"You nod back. "Indeed. There's a line between confidence and egomania. Take care to not cross it."He beams, as he strikes another pose as though he were flaunting for a magazine cover. "Then you have learned well, my friend. I would be pleased to get to know you better, perhaps we could grab sushi after this?"Now that he mentions it, you're hungry... Wait."Are you asking me out, Ryuusei?"He shakes his head, that smile still persisting. "Not at all. I just find that sushi makes for a great way to bond between friends. I apologize if I put you off, however.""It's fine, really."A small awkward pause ensues. "Well, I'm not done meeting everyone yet, so. Yeah.""Likewise. I shall see you around, Mr. Frank."---An awkward silence with the lord of ladykillers himself. Has hell frozen over...?Regardless, one person remains.(continued)
>The grumpy-looking shrine maidenYou approach the girl in a miko's outfit."Hello there," you begin. "As mentioned, I'm Will. May I ask your name?"She side-eyes you, before sighing. "Rinako. Rinako Ise."RINAKO ISEUltimate Shrine MaidenIt seems fate has a two-for-one special on pregnant pauses today. You scratch the back of your head, wondering what to say next to this rather... unaccommodating girl.>"Some introduction to the academy, huh?">"See any good movies lately?">"Did you hear about that one murder at the ramen stand?"
>>2638243>>"Some introduction to the academy, huh?"
>>2638243>"Some introduction to the academy, huh?"
>>2638243>"Did you hear about that one murder at the ramen stand?"
>"Some introduction to the academy, huh?"Boy, you wish Ryuusei was your wingman right now. Regardless, you decide small talk works best.After you say that, she sighs again. "It sure is. I was hoping the school day wouldn't last too long."...It keeps happening."Well," you say, "who knows what time it is? Maybe it's only been a few minutes.""Can you prove that?""...No."She sighs for the third time. "Then why bother telling me that?"You're tempted to try justifying yourself, but you know it'll just lead to a circle of you getting put on the defensive. In that case, what now..."You don't have to force the conversation to continue."You're relieved, albeit disappointed. "Well, so long then.""Yeah."---Looking around the room, you notice Ryuusei and Akanishi talking, as the latter lets out another "ohohoho," as well as Shin talking Rinako's ear off, and another assortment of idle students to meet.

>The woman wearing a strange red hat with tentaclesWow, that's quite the fashion statement. But you shouldn't judge.You approach her, clearing your throat. She turns around and-holy hell they're huge. Don't stare, don't stare, don't stare."My, my. It's nice to meet you, I'm Akira Shimuzu."AKIRA SHIMUZUUltimate Marine BiologistNow that you see her from the front, you notice the beady eyes on her hat that covers her blue hair."Is that an octopus hat...?"You realize you put your foot in your mouth, but she giggles regardless. "Quite the choice of ice breaker, Willy. I can call you Willy, right?"You nod, as you find something to look at that's not her hat or breasts. Oh right, she has a face. Silly you."Well, yes. Octopi are my favorite creatures in the sea, you know? So I bought this hat, and the rest is history. Best thing in my wardrobe""I know the feeling of having a favorite piece of clothing," you say with a smile."Let me guess. That tie of yours?"You nod. "Spot on.""You know, how about you tell me a little about yourself? That tie is a good place to start, it suits you, Mr. Spokesman.""Ah, shucks. Well...">It was a gift>I bought it>I won it

>>2638348>It was a gift>>2638407I agree. It was hilarious. Just, unexpected.
>It was a gift"My father gave it to me after I got a standing ovation when I was 11. Hard to believe I was taken seriously when I was a kid, huh?"She hums to herself for a moment, her seafoam green eyes closed in thought, before she speaks again. "You shouldn't sell yourself so short. You're the Ultimate Spokesman for a reason, Willy. Why, I'm sure they didn't doubt you for a second once you started talking."You smile, before realizing the implication. "And before I start talking?""...Confusion?"The two of you share a laugh. You like her already!"My, my. But don't let me keep you, you've got more people to meet, right, Willy?""Good call. I'll see you around, Akira."---Well, one down, four to go for this set.>The short girl riding a segway>The man with an unlit cigarette>The guy in a surgeon's mask>The boy from earlier

>The boy from earlierSure enough, you recognize the guy who first said hi to you. Might as well see what his deal is, finally.He notices you coming, and gives a big grin and a wave. "Yooo! Will!""Yoooo." You mentally pat yourself on the back for being able to level with him."Finally, now I can introduce myself! Name's Rikuto Honda! I'm the Bear of Shibuya!"RIKUTO HONDAUltimate DemolitionistYou've heard the rumors of someone who can take down any building... for the right price, and if the owner requests it. Nothing shady. You hope."So, you're THE Will! I can't believe it's really you!""Yeah. You a fan, or something?" You feel a bit sheepish at this lad's nigh-worship of you."It was a few years back, March 21st! You gave a speech about doing what you love!"He's right! You DID give a speech like that on that day a while back! It really must've touched him."I take it you love explosions, then?"Rikuto gives another grin. "Hell yeah! I love the thrill of shit goin' BOOM! Nothing like it, yo!" He gets an inquisitive look on his face. "But you know, there's something... peaceful, about wiping the slate clean. Once the dust settles, it can be anything, you know? So it's not just fun, I'm helping with the first steps. That make sense?"You're surprised by how suddenly introspective he became. "Yeah, that's quite the perspective to have on your talent.""Thanks, bro! But this is getting a bit too philosophical, right? Let's lighten the mood! Uh... know any good jokes?"You're the one grinning this time. "Oh yeah.">Write-in your favorite joke. The one I find funniest wins!

>>2638858Its k. Just don't rely on player input for stuff like this. Best you can expect is a holocaust joke, worst you can get is nothing at all.
It seems you can only think of the cheapest, cruelest, yet undeniable most effective form of laughs: Insult comedy.You point at the guy with an unlit cigarette in his mouth. "That guy."Rikuto takes a moment to question what the hell you're talking about, until... "BWAHAHAHA!"The man you pointed to notices his laughter and raises his eyebrow at the two of you, before going off to meet someone else. You casually wave to him, trying you best to not let it sink in that you probably pissed him off already."Haha... alright, I'm chill now. Thanks for the laugh, man. I'll see ya around, alright?""Yeah. Take care, Rikuto."You turn to lea-"Hang on! Quick request. Call me Rick.""Rick it is. Take care, Rick."NOW you turn to leave.---So far, so good.

"Good day, Mr. Frank! My name is Moriya Miyake, SIR!"MORIYA MIYAKEUltimate Security GuardYou recall talks of hiring her for one of your speeches after an anonymous threat, long ago. However, this is your first time meeting her face-to-face."Uh, Moriya, first thing's first. Please don't yell into your megaphone unless it's an emergency."She jumps a little, before hanging her head in shame. "I'm sorry, SIR! Permission to give justification for my actions, SIR?""...Why not. Go ahead."She gives another salute. "Thank you, SIR! I was moving forward to greet you and did not want to run over anyone! Please understand, SIR!"That... Well, you won't comment further. Time to change the subject."I see. Any good stories you have to share, from being on patrol?"She immediately perks up even further. "SIR YES SIR! I have many a story! Once I protected the prime minister! Oh, another time I patrolled the Louvre! And I also stopped a bank robbery! Also-""Whoa, slow down! How about just one for now? Like...">Protecting the Prime Minister>Guarding the Louvre>Foiling a bank robbery
>>2638897>Foiling a bank robbery

>Foiling a bank robbery"The bank robbery story sounds dangerous AND interesting. Let's start with that one."Moriya strikes her fist into her palm. "Bank robbery it is, SIR! I was called after an insider tip informed a bank of a robbery that was going to happen that day, so I ZOOMED over! I immediately spotted the suspicious men and cuffed one, before the other three pulled out guns!""Wow, I'm glad that didn't end badly. What happened then?""Well, SIR! Using my patented triple taser technique, I stunned them all before they could finish telling me not to act dumb! Haha! I am laughing at the fact that they acted dumb to begin with, SIR!!"You can already feel another Shin happening. Time to bail."Well, that's one hell of a story. You did good, Moriya.""Thank you, SIR!" She salutes yet again. At least she's earnest."Well, I'll be off now. You take care, okay?""Likewise, SIR!"---You're both somewhat irritated and refreshed. Considering how you feel about Shin, you realize how much of a hypocrite you are. In your defense, Shin's not a cute girl, so of course you're biased....Ahem. Who's next?>The man with an unlit cigarette>The guy in a surgeon's maskGonna head off to bed now. Will be back in a few hours.I'd like to take this time to say thank you all for giving this a chance and sticking with this so far, despite the opening.

>>2639106>The man with the unlit cigarette.
>The man with an unlit cigaretteYou approach the guy as he toys with the cigarette... wait, is that a lead pipe strapped to his back? Considering this is the same guy you got Rikuto to laugh at, you should probably kiss your kneecaps goodbye.You try to stammer out a greeting, but your breath catches. Oh god you're so screwed. He then turns around, and pulls out the cig...wait, that's a yellow lollipop."So you're Will, huh? Name's Cain Tokugawa. Want a lollipop? ''fraid I only got lemon."CAIN TOKUGAWAUltimate SarakinOh, the stories you've heard of the loan shark who will sweet talk you into making a loan, and then showing up at your doorstep when you don't make the deadline. Rumor has it, he's dealt with the yakuza before. He may very well BE yakuza... Yeah, you're screwed."So what were you cats gigglin' about earlier? That fella's got a pretty loud laugh, y'see."Oh god, how do you salvage this. "Well... I told him a joke. Pretty simple."He squints at you, before pulling a wrapper from his leather jacket and wrapping the lollipop in it, then storing it in that same pocket. "Well, if you say so. Question, though, sorry if it's too personal. You're not exactly Japanesse, are ya?""Well...">Nope, I was scouted globally>Sort of, I come from a mixed family>I actually am, my parents just gave me an English name
>>2641829>Sort of, I come from a mixed family
>>2641829>>Sort of, I come from a mixed family
>Sort of, I come from a mixed family."My father was European and my mother Japanese. She took his name, hence the English last name.'Cain smiles a bit. "You too, huh? Except switch the genders for my situation. Pops taught me everything I knew.""Same here! Fathers really are brilliant teachers.""Ain't they?""May I ask about your mother? I trust she's well?"As soon as he noticeably looks a little gloomy, you realize you screwed up."She died after pushin' me out.""O-oh," you stammer. "Sorry, I shouldn't have..." You trail off, trying to find the right words to say."Hey, it's fine. If I cried myself to sleep over not knowing her again, she'd come down from heaven to smack me for being a wuss," he jokes with a smirk."I see. Well, I'm not nearly done yet, so see you around, Cain.""Same, Will."---Well, only one person left for this group.(continued)Sorry for how long this is taking, by the way. Not just these last updates, I mean introductions in general.
>The guy in a surgeon's maskYou approach the final member of this group. "Hello, I'm-""Halt." His eyes are closed, and looks like he's thinking hard... until his eyes open, and he pulls down his mask. "Now you may speak.""...H-hello, I'm Will, as you heard. May I ask your name?""...Kobe Akutagawa. There is nothing I cannot cure."KOBE AKUTAGAWAUltimate Epidemiologist"Aren't epidemiologists meant to just study the spread of diseases...?""I say "no thank you" to not being able to walk the walk in addition to talking the talk. It's as simple as that.""That's pretty admirable of you, but why not just something like Ultimate Doctor, then?"He looks at you as though you said the sky was green. "Because epidemiology is my specialty."He then closes his eyes, and returns to that intense thinking look."Uh, may I ask-""Quiet."...You wait a few moments, before his eyes open. "Speak.""Well, I was wondering what you were doing.""Sudoku."You nod, before realizing it. "Wait, you're doing sudoku all in your head?!""Yes. It's my favorite sort of puzzle. May I ask yours?>Sudoku>Crosswords>Riddles
>>2642170>SudokuIt seems we adapt a lot to what the other person likes, so I think we should too in this case.
>Riddles"Personally, I prefer riddles. You really have to think outside the box for quite a few of them."Kobe nods to himself. "I see. You prefer a broad range of puzzles. You seem like the sort of person that adapts well."What is he, the Ultimate Psychologist as well...?"This was enlightening. Perhaps we should talk again, Will Alison Frank.""Likewise, Ko-er, Dr. Akutagawa."You see his eyes have shut once again. Guess you might as well move on...---You look around once more. Moriya's on her segway while Shin talks her ear off next, Cain is talking to a nervous-looking Rikuto, Kobe's off in his own corner along with Rnako, and Akira's talking to Ryuusei.Looks like this is the last group of students.

>The ordinary looking girlYou approach the girl who would be totally plan if not for the ahoge upon her head. Not like yours, hers is standing up."Hi there, may I ask your name?" Standard greetings work the best.She looks up to you, before looking back at her feet, wordlessly. She lets out a small breath, before going silent once more."Um, sorry, am I bothering you?" You tilt your head at the girl's silence."...n...no..."This time, you could hear her. "Glad to hear it. As I said, I'm Will, by the way.""I...I know... it's just..." She trembles a bit ss she speaks."Just what?""...I don't remember. M-my name, that is. All I remember is that I'm the Ultimate Lucky Student."???Ultimate Lucky StudentA girl who doesn't remembers nothing but her talent? How... curious. A part of you is suspicious, but when you look at her, and her shy demeanor, you berate yourself for such a terrible thought."What do you remember about yourself, miss? If anything."She remains quiet, her face scrunching up as she thinks hard... "...My favorite food is bananas.""Fan of fruit, huh? I'm more of a kiwi guy, myself."She pouts a bit at you, clearly unamused by the difference in opinion. "Bananas are the best kind of food! They're portable, don't get dirty, and if you bruise them, they're easy to dig off the bruised part!"Her sudden passion leaves you unable to giggle a bit. This, unsurprisingly, makes her look hurt."Hey, I didn't mean anything bad by laughing. It was WITH you, not AT you. It's good to see that you're still passionate about something."Her expression neutralizes. "You think so...?"Was that a little smile you noticed?! That's it, it's official. You are giving this girl a hug... when the mood calls for it and you're not in front of 13 other people, that is. In the meantime..."You know, you can't just spend your time at Hope's Peak without a name. What do you think yours should be?"She looks surprised by the fact she can pick a name... and then shrugs. "I-I'm not sure, sorry... um, what do you think would be a good name?"You're being given the honor of naming this girl. You feel honored.>Write-in

"Hikari Kaori."She blinks, before pondering it... and smiling."I like it. Thank you."You did good, Will. You did good."I'll have to introduce you to everyone when I get the chance," you promise."I can do it myself," she says with surprising resolve... before she shrinks a bit. "Um, I mean, if you'll let me...""Of course, Hikari. But if you need a wingman, so to speak, I'll be there."She smiles again, almost tearing up in what you hope are tears of joy. "Thank you so much, Will.""Any time. I'll see you around, okay?"---Man, you've done a good deed of such magnitude that if you burned down a small town and died in the fire, you'd have enough karma to not go to whatever hell awaits the wicked.

Might as well put the final nail in this coffin."Azura, I'm sorry if this is rude to say, but, well. Are you a chuuni?"She immediately cringes, her face growing red in record time. "No! I...um...ah..."You recall a quote: The chuuni is immunized against all dangers. One may call her a nerd, a geek, a show-off, it all runs off her like water off a raincoat. But call her a chuuni and you'll be astonished at how she recoils; "I've been found out.""L-look, it's just... It's fun to be dramatic! But then I realize what I'm saying is weird, and I get so embarrassed, and...gottagobye!"She runs off...into a wall. Poor girl.You run over to her, kneeling above her. "Are you okay, Azura?""...n-no," she says as she cries.---After some time just sitting there in silence as she lets it out, you part ways once she settles down.

I thought it was some orientation thing, myself."Motochika shrugs. "Sounds about right, bro.

The power of rock.""I see, I see..." You nod, then your eyes grow wide. "Wait, WHAT?!""Talk to me after this whole prank ends, I'll tell you alllll about it!"

Now Tateyuki, I don't like passing up interviews, but since our work both involves talking to people, I don't want to put you off. I respect you. So three questions sound good?"She may be sucking up a little, but you see where she's coming from on your similarities. "Yeah, three works for me.""Cool. So first question: What gave you your start as a spokesman?"Easy. "Well, aside from talking clearly and coherently at an early age? I was the best student in speech club. I even clearly remember someone commenting that I was the ultimate in the class, and, well. That inspired me to aim higher, and try to become an Ultimate.""I, for one, always like seeing dreams come true, viewers. Next question; who are your big inspirations in terms of spokesmanship? If that's not a word, it is now.""Hah, spokesmanship it is. Well, my parents. They always bragged about how they didn't do baby talk around me, and they say that's part of how I became such a great speaker. In addition, my father and I had plenty of debates, so he helped me hone my skills early."She blinks at you, semi-smiling. "Well, that's great, but I mean more like, what famous figures inspired you?"...Well, this is awkward. "Honestly, nobody in particular.""Nobody? Not even, say, Martin Luther King? William Buckley Jr.? George Lincoln Rockwell?""Nobody. Also, aren't those all American politicians?""Well, your name's English, so I assumed those would be three you've heard of... Wait, more importantly, are you saying you're self-taught?!""...I guess so.""Wowza, viewers! Now THIS is a startling development!"

>>2658956>write-in>Figure out what's going on with this situationNo need to make any serious statements, just deflect.
>>2659062I'm supporting this despite it being unorthodox.
>...You...You can't think of an answer. Why can't you think of an answer?She looks at you expectantly as you feel a bead of sweat drop down your forehead. Come on, Will, this is a simple question... SO WHY CAN'T YOU THINK OF AN ANSWER?!You think hard, and hard... yet you get nothing! You just can't imagine life after New Hope's Peak! What do you say? WHAT DO YOU S-And then, a monitor positioned at one of the corridor ends flickers to life. All you can see is static, however."Alright, punks," a gruff voice says. "You've had enough meet and greet. Get your asses down to this door."...Harsh language for a school environment."We'll continue later, Tateyuki. We'll be right back, viewers." She turns off her tape recorder, as Rinako walks past the two of you, as do many of the other students.Rikuto slings an arm around you once more. "Hate to interrupt, bro, but we shouldn't keep 'em waiting.""Yeah, I guess. Let's go, Yoriko."She nods, as the three of you walk out. Rikuto's quite casual with both hands behind his head, and Yoriko's fiddling with something in her pocket. You adjust your tie, approach the just-closed door, and push it open......What the hell...?
Around you, is black night. The courtyard around you is lit up by the lights on the sides of the path. Behind you is the building you just left. To your right, a smaller building. To your left, a larger building. Behind the fountain in front of you is yet a larger building. Speaking of the fountain, you can make out the water flowing from the lights around it, but there's something... solid, sitting on top of it.All the students are looking around, and you prepare yourself to check i-"To the fountain, scumbags," a familiar voice yells.You make your way to the fountain obligingly, as does everyone else. Everyone whispers to themselves."I say, what is going on?""What time is it...?""Well, I may have a theory...""You cats stick behind me if someone comes out, I can take em.""So can I, with my... never mind."As everyone whispers, you feel someone tug your sleeve. It's Hikari, who looks up at you worriedly."What's wrong, Hikari?" you ask."It's just... can I stick with you? I'm a bit nervous...""Go right ahead," you say with a smile...And then, the nightmare begins."Well," the voice from earlier says, as a shape appears in front of the fountain. "Looks like you're all here. Allow I, Monomausu, to formally welcome you..."To New Despair's Peak Academy!"The fountain lights up, and you see... a small plush mouse. One half is black, the other is white. Wait, this is the mouse that was on the chalkboard in your room!And then, you hear a scream. You wonder what's wro-...You look up.On top of the fountain... a cross. And... and...There's a man crucified to it. It looks like he hasn't been there long, considering how preserved his corpse is. He looks so familiar, with his ahoge and otherwise ordinary appearance, but you just can't pl-"HEADMASTER NAEGI!"Now you remember. The Ultimate Hope himself! And...he's dead.Someone collapses, and the others are in an uproar."WHAT THE FUCK? THIS HAS TO BE A JOKE!""WELL IT'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE, GET DOWN ALREADY!""WE JUST HAD A STARTLING DEVELOPMENT, VIEWERS!""B-BY THE POWER OF MY HOLY VISION, RETURN TO LIFE!"Everyone's in an uproar. Someone clings to your arm... it's Hikari."ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT! SHUT UP, ASSHOLES!" The mouse yells, and everyone quiets down. "Now, let me make it clear, what's going on. Nobody has to end up like this punk. You just gotta live out the rest of your lives here, nice and peacefully. No escaping, no fighting. Just play nice."As soon as he finished talking..."What do you mean, no escape?!" You recognize the yelling voice as Ryuusei's."Well, let's fuckin' see. You can't leave the area. Simple as that.""B-but what if we WANT to? I have work to do!" Azura sounds devastated."Tough shit. You're stuck here," Monumausu says. "Don't worry, we got food, running water, and shelter. We even got shitters! Ain't I a nice mouse?"Total silence. Everyone lets it sink in..."Well," the demonic mouse doll says, "I lied. There's a way out:""Murder."
"M-murder...?!" you stammer, your hairs standing on end."Yeah, son. Loss of life. Death. All that good shit, you feel me? Let me put it simply, in case that ain't enough for you stupid pricks:"If you want out, kill a student and get away with it. Easy peasy, right?""You think any of us will kill someone? Get real," Cain taunts."Oh, so you consent to being kept here? Good! I like consent. I ain't into violation, yo." Monomausu seems quite casual about this."Well, no," you begin. "We-""WANT to kill someone? Okay, then do it! Just don't get caught, aight?""He never said that!" Rikuto yelled with a sudden ferocity. "We don't wanna kill and we don't wanna stay here!""Tough shit, kid," Monomausu says with a shrug. "The only options you got are murder or accept your fate."Everyone's silent. Everyone looks at each other... You then realize it.What if someone takes the mouse seriously? From Rikuto, who's been acting buddy buddy with you, to Rinako, who seems callous enough as is, to Shin, who might just be faking his tears as he goes into a fetal position, to Yoriko, who may have been trying to scope out your weaknesses.........As long as you're here......Your life is in danger, 24/7.DANGANRONPA QUEST PROLOGUEEND
Alright, I'm gonna plan out things further. Maps, murders, meetings, and so on.Any comments and criticisms? Sorry if I went too fast at the end, I can't find a good balance between shock and speed.Also, hello to anyone who reads this in the future on suptg! Hopefully I've gotten better at QMing.
>>2660673You kinda lost steam by taking too long between posts, old DR quest died due to that I think. Decent start I guess.
