This phenomena is rare in this part of Gotham.Patient 64: Lisa PennyforkPatient exhibit extreme paranoia with the intent of self-harm. Family history and drug test suggest that she have no abnormal nor heritage sickness."Remember to keep it safe and neutral, Rookie. Our job is to understand her state of mind, not to sympathize," Your senior, Gart, sighs as he opened the door of Mrs. Pennyfork. White and pristine padded room with a few spots of blood and excrement.The patient is a middle age housewife with brunette hair and pale skin. Her eyes were bloodshot and covered with wrinkles, signaling that she did not even slept a wink. Her lips were torn from the constant biting, slowly excreting red liquid.The both of you carefully approached her with the usual greeting," Mrs. Pennyfork?"She ignored you.You tried again with a louder voice," Mrs. Pennyfok, My name is Dr. Sebastian and this is Dr. Gart. We are here to help you."As soon as she heard help, she quickly turned towards you and scream her throat out," PLEASE, PLEASE GET THESE FEATHERS OFF ME!

Does she saw something different or her state of mind is in dissaray that she saw what does not exist? Is this her greatest fea---- Mrs. pennyfork. This fear of feathers... they are interesting. How can a harmless thing be an object of fear? Please book another appointment with me ---What was that? What did you see? A doctor with glasses and sharp chin? Is that a glimpse of something?Your mind is unstable...again."THEY TOLD ME I WAS CURED! THEY LIED! THEY LIED! YOU ALL LIED!"

It took three men to pin her down until the meds kick in while you and your senior exit the place.It seems the patient's mind create her worst fear, bypassing the mental shutdown that usually buries the fear into her subconcious. Something is making the brain think otherwise..."Good thing you sedate her. Anymore questions and I will have to intervene," Gart pats your back, breaking your diagnosis.""Thank you, Dr. Gart," you smile weakly but pain slowly appeared in your head. A headache... you need your pills..."What do you think of her state of mind, Sebastian?" He asked while guiding you to the staff room.>What is your diagnosis?
>>2695740>What is your diagnosis?Dementia, she's clearly out of her mind(Gotta get out of here and take our pills)
>>2695740She seems to have an irrational phobia of feathers, probably worsened by imperfect therapy.

Her irrational phobia of feather and dementia made it harder for us to know the core cause of her disease."Your senior scratches his chin," Well, not bad rookie. I'll give you a B+ for that.""Seriously?" A smile creeps on his lips as you sigh."Not too worry. Her neighbor here have the same symptoms, even if he is a small time crook. He kept raving about bats. Could this be a serious disease? It scould be fun" He grins, pointing at the white door with 63 on it.If you recall, the patient there is a crook connected to the underground organization.

He asked with a worried tone."Y-yeah.

HE'S HERE!"Dr. Gart raised his eyebrow before calling the orderlies to sedate the patient and pull you out of the room. With a curious face, he asks," Please explain, Dr. Sebastian."You quickly speak your diagnosis," It is unnatural. The trauma should be locked inside the subconcious but the patients were conciously seeing their fear. Unless there are other sickness that caused it, they are all healthy people.""That is a good diagnosis but... I am afraid Dr. Jonathan Crane is already in the newly made Arkham for few months now," He sighs," And we are in the best side zone of Gotham so the chances of those kind of criminals are low."But you are sure it is the fear toxin."Get some rest, Dr. Sebastian.

It's comfortable one at least.Sitting on your computer, you quickly search for the scarecrow on the internet.It seems psychologist Jonathan Crane was obsessed with fear and took a position in Arkham asylum. He was also a professor of psychology at Gotham University, specializing in the study of phobias.Have you seen his face? now, you barely remember your professors...His M.O usually spread fear toxins in the form of gas which cause the victims to relived their worst nightmare. The symptoms were similar but this strain have bloodshots and wrinkles on the victims...Additionally, he was imprisoned few months ago and it was before the first patient came in.This is strange... Did he have a back-up plan? It doesn't seem like him since he love to see the fear of his victims. Maybe you think too much...Calling a cop might saves you the trouble or visiting the person is indeed in prison should calm you down.Enough info gathering for today.

The receptionist asks."Hello, this is Sebastian from HomeSweet Medical Institution. I would like to report about a symptoms we found that is similar to the Fear Toxin in some of our patients. Just to be sure, the Scarecrow is locked yes?""Wait a moment please," and the call let out the usual waiting tune.Then another person replied your call, this time he have a gruff voice," This is Commissioner Gordon speaking. Are you the one who report about fear toxin and Scarecrow?"You were taken back by his voice"y-yes?""Are you sure about this report?" he asks sternly.You can already feel a cold sweat on your forehead," y-yeah. I diagnose them myself and research some of his M.O so I am quiet sure...?"The line went silent for a moment then he speak again," It might be impossible for Crane to be able to spread the toxin from inside the Asylum. Hang on kid, I'll send someone there with the cure.""Thank you, commissioner," and he close the line.At least that's that....---"It's not working..." The cop says to the radio after giving the cure to the nurses," The cure is not working.""What do you mean it's not working?

The commissioner barks again."Well... They are shouting at something. That's for sure," The cop laughs before his partner nudge his side."It is the toxin, sir." His parner replied."How the heck..." And the line went off as the comissioner grumbles. This is not good..."Well, Dr. Sebastian, thank you for your time," the partner shake your head before leaving.At least you di-!GAH!

Like dogs given the stick, you will learn how to be careful and think calmly."What the fuck do you mean?" You almost shout before you hear a bang. The door of your room just flew itself on the opposite wall and come out Dr. Gart. Behind him is a mob of nurses and seniors, ready to tear you apart like the Frankenstein Monster."Oh shit!

A satsifying crash was heard as the pot collide with the dog and staggering him, suprising everyone in the room.Taking this opportunity, the pinned cop slam his gun's butt on the nurse and few more shots can be heard as you run away to your office. Hopefully they can survive the incoming mob...Closing and barricading your office, the fatigue quickly took over your body as you lose the sensation of your limbs. Crouching under your desk, the feeling of safety washes all over you.

>>2699766>>2699770Then save the idea for later. Can we try to meditate in the meantime?
>>2699783That count as resting
All I can say at this point is stay awake and don't self medicate. We already have fear toxin in our system, DON'T add another cocktail of chemicals to the mix.
>>2699791Then do this, but without sleeping or taking pills.>>2699798Agreed.>>2696310>"Fine. I'll do this favor just this once.

>>2699798That makes sense, no pills then.
Writing then>>2699809A special med that is always there for you.
Really gotta wonder why we are taking the pills considering our job description. Wouldn't be surprised if they were some experimental fear toxin given to us by the other staff.

>>2699869"Well I currently have a voice in my head, I'm getting what appear to be repressed memories about my family getting killed, and my co workers are part of a scarecrow cult that were experimenting on patients and myself.""So no, I am not alright."Give him the toxin.
Ask if taking a pill would have an adverse effect on your mind? Batman should be able to field test stuff like this, or at least send scans for oracle to make a judgement on. Assuming we are in the arkham games universe.

Ah! Here is the new strain of toxin.""They had been dealt with an hour ago," he gently take the syringe and tap his wrist," Hm? A deadlier strain than the usual."Wait! An hour ago? It felt like seconds!" Curious. The toxin is already in your blood and judging by your bloodshot eyes and wrinkled face, you should be under its effect but your heartrate and relaxed stance shows otherwise," The bat says, his gaze hardened.This is strange to you too."And the voice in your head. What did it say? What did it commands you to do?">What do you think of the voice?
>>2699935"It wanted me to use the toxin as a sort of steroid, and let it 'take over'.">Fuck the voice, the voice can go to hell and die.

Chapter 1: The House of Cards.The soup and bread you were given was warm and hard but enough to get you recovered from your pathetic state. With the help of a cane, the three of them began a tour around the asylum but mostly your uncle speaking.The Asylum is cold and dark with the occasion of someone screaming from fear or guilt...maybe both. It was a monsterous stitches of Gothic architecture and Modern design, creating a terrifying maze of madness. An abomination just like Frankenstein's Monster."After Bane's rebellion, we have to build the asylum from the scratch but don't worry though, our patients are currently held in Blackgate. But don't worry though! They should be transferred here anytime soon," Your gleeful uncle dances as he walk through the dim and decript hallway.The first corridor was a familiar sight. The walls and floors were painted white and clean with some few cracks. The room itself is fully furnished with a comfortable space and one bed. "This is our low level cells for normals. Patients with low agression, recovering criminals and drug addict, and sometimes villains with good behavior. There is a recreation room and small cantine for them there too! Good for them, I say! They are easy to maintain and few people are normal here. Everyone seems to like it here." Your uncle smiles before leading the group to a sturdy metallic door."Then we have the meat of our treatment, the Medium Level Cells," With the commissioner placing a card on the scanner, the metallic door hiss and opened. The walk inside is like Dante's first step toward the gates of hell...Red Light and uncomfortable wrm air atmosphere assault the group but only you flinched. As you passed though the hallway, you realized there are more doors than the low security box and the room size is about 3x3, enought to develeop a clausterphobic trauma. Padded, and complete with straight jackets and restrictioning beds. How do people live in this cages?You uncle continues, unaffected by the inhuman cages," This is where we store our aggressive, demented, and uncontrolled criminals.""Doctor..." The vigilante growls, interrupting your uncle.Your uncle stopped and smiled at the group like a child," Oh yes. 'Patients'. Don't worry, my room is over there." He pointed at the middle metal doors among other metal doors.>Medium security box (for 40 people)- The bulk of Asylum's cells.- Currently look like a personal solitary confinement- Living here for a day is already a punishment."Now before we go to the maximum security and meet our Chief security, any question?" Your uncle asks.>Write in 3 question>No, Proceed to the Maximum Cells

when do we start
>>2700717>"Now before we go to the maximum security and meet our Chief security, any question?" Your uncle asks."Uh, yeah, just one. Why in the goddamn hell am I being put in charge of a mental facility based solely on my lineage?! With the shit I'm going through I should be a fucking patient in an asylum, not running one! This can't possibly be legal!"
>>270096330 min max for players and questions. Lemme post an ad on the general
>>2700717"Few questions actually...First: Why in the goddamn hell am I being put in charge of a mental facility based solely on my lineage?! With the shit I'm going through, I should be a fucking patient in an asylum, not running one! This can't possibly be legal!" You let out your frustration but none of them flinched or even surprised."It is legal. We have proofs that you are mentally fit for duty and your uncle signed the papers," The Commissioner pulls a paper from his coat. It is legitimate with the signature of Jeremiah Arkham, the chief administrator of this place. The admin smiles at you while you are horrified.The vigilante continues," Additionally, it seems you have a natural resistance to psychological attacks. I have traced your history and medical condition. Your recessive trait and the childhood trauma suggests that you are technically insane but your father did something to you that made you rational than most of the patient here. You might be able to help these people here while resisting their insanity.""In other words," your uncle interrupts," You are already a patient here, just with different clearance. Two birds, one stone."They are prepared and it seems they really want you to stay here. "Alright. Alright. Do I have a retirement plan?" You asks, hoping to tone down the seriousness.Only the commissioner chuckles," If you survive."Gee, thanks Commissioner.Then you quickly switch to a more professional tone,"What are your thoughts on making a much milder version of the Fear Toxin for psychiatry? Possibly getting Crane's cooperation?""NO!" The bat barks," You should never ask for their cooperation or their tools. These selfish villains will stab you in the back the moment you take your eyes off them."The other two just shurgs but a big no from the vigilante."Alright, time for the main attraction!" He grins and lead the group to a larger and sturdier metal door. Batman swipe a card while the commissioner place a finger and his eyes on seperate scanners. The door hiss loudly and creaks as it tries to lift itself open. On the other side is an african american security guard with a silver hook for a hand."Meet Captain Aaron Cash. Chief Security," the commissioner announced."Pleasure to meet you, Mr Arkham. You look a bit green," He says while offering a handshake with his meaty hand. His grip is damn strong!With that, he lead the group to the maximum security cell.The cell is wide enough but the entrace wall are made out of glass. It's like watching an animal in the zoo! These patients are stripped bare of their privacy!"now,now nephew. This design is much more safer than the old rooms. We can observe and gain more data this way. Plus, our psychiatrists are safe from their clutches while we do our job.
>>2701082>Maximum Security cell (for 10 villains)- Have room similar like low security but no privacy- Two maximum security guards partols the cells every hours. They are partnered.- These patients are not to be underestimated! They are intelligent criminals." As the new admin, I must remind you that some criminal- I mean patients need a custom containment like Mr. Freeze or...Croc," The captain shivers as soon as he mentioned Croc. You can feel fear oozing from him.Wait... Your head...It hurts again...>-2 Sanity. (4/6)" For now we have Jonathan Crane AKA Scarcrow," The group passed a cell containing a thin man with malice in his eyes, sitting on the corner."Good evening. It seems we have a new blood here. I can smell his fear already," The Scarecrow jeers.That voice! You know it! It is similar to the first voice but with more malice!>-1 sanity (3/6)"Hm? Why the strange face? Come closer so I can examine you..." Crane stood up, shuffling closer to the glass wall."Ignore him," Cash frown before going to the next cell," This is Pamela Lillian Isley AKA Poison Ivy. She is contained in an air tight cell so her pheromone will not corrupt the doctors.""Why so harsh, Cash?" An alluring lady in green slowly walked toward the glass, a slight pink mist from from body." Back away from the glass, Ivy!"

>>2701099Like a moth to a flame, you approached the smiling Jonathan Crane with a question."Have we already met, Mr. Crane?"It took him a while before he answered with a curious look," and your name?""Sebastian," you answered easily.Crane stratch his cheek," No. We never met but... why do you feel familiar?"Your head pulsed with pain...Your mind is holding...->-2 sanity (1/6)" Maybe we met each other in Gotham U?" you tried to pry but he shake his head.He became annoyed," No. you are too young to be in my class. But who are you? Why do you feel familiar as if we are friends?"And another throb...>-2 sanity (-1/6)"Because we are the same," You answered aoutomatically as soon as a familiar voice commands you."My Dear Student, Every word is a knife that cuts the mind," Crane said...No. this is not the Crane in front of you. He sounds like a mentor, not a psycopath."Enough! I can sense fear on you. What is it that you are afraid of?" Scarecrow shouts, banging the glass.---It's the BATS! WHY IS HE STILL STANDING! HOW IS HE STILL STANDING! HE SHOULD SUCCUMB TO HIS FEEEEAAAARRR! AHHHHHHHHHHHH! DEMON! A DEMON!--"The bat... The demon bat... black as night and sharp as a knife," you answered calmly.

The subject is experiencing an anxiety disorder, perhaps developed from childhood?""Why are you afraid, Mr. Crane? Is that an anxiety disorder I see? What is it that made you this obsessed? A childhood trauma?"A shift on his eyes..." So it is... Wonderful. Keep asking, my student. After all...Fear is the driving force behind every action," the proud professor complements you with a ghostly smile.You mouth shift into a terrible smile,"Ah yes... fear is the driving force behind every action. A man married because he fear of being alone-""GO AWAY!" The Scarecrow suddenly screams"A Man have child becaue he fear his gene will die out.""GUARDS!""Why the obsession, Mr Crane?

Professor Crane screams.>+4 (0/6)The headache returns as the voice of your mentor left your mind.Your mind is... stabilizing...Regaining your sanity, the group looked at you with degree of disdain."Don't do that again," the bat grit his teeth and forcefully drag you away from the maximu cells.

I can't believe it worked. Look at his face!"None of the group are amused and it took him few minute to calm himself," It's a placebo. i got more if you want."" Thank you doctor but we are busy," Cash quickly dragged the group away from the fat doctor.But how did the placebo work? How did they reduce your headache?Before you know it, you are in the staff room. The room is adequate enogh to hold around 50 people with some spare bedroom, hospital style. Peeking at the bedroom, they have 10 beds with some of them being messy. Vending machine, coffee maker, mini kitchen, and fridge is there for the staff to use. However, it seems most of the staff here are grumbling about how the day will be stressing or how the don't like the food.>Staff room (lvl 1)- Can hold around 50 staff members- have minimal comfort- Have 10 beds but sometimes they were not made after used.- Staff moral: Abysmal.Then a woman with long hair entwined by red ribbons came to the group. An experienced psychiatrist judging by the way she looks at you, examining every movement. Cash noticed her," This is-" Alyce Sinner, Jeremiah's protege," A cold and professional introduction."Ah, I am-"She quickly cuts you off," Sebastian Arkham. The heir of this Asylum and the new Director. yes, we know who you are but after eading your profile, there is something that I wish to check."She came closer, taking a good look at your expression and body language. The smell of rose enveloped your nostrils.He then stopped, hitting her chin with the pen she's holding," Strange. For a man with Multiple Personality Disorder,PTSD, and a possible schizophrenia, you look normal. What makes you think you are not a ticking bomb like your uncle here?""I-""I believe him," this time the vigilante interrupts you," he have the capability to do great thing.""Sure..." Cash rolled his eyes.The bat ignored him and focus on you," Tell me, Sebastian. Why did you not kill Dr.Gart whne you have the chance? Why give me the fear serum? WHy did you throw the pot, saving the officer's life? You have no obligation to do those things.">You answer, Dr sebastian?
Ah and also a bit of restriction for our new ability>Ability Gained: The Art of Fear ( Gain +10 when threatening or exposing someone's phobia) (active only with the help of Professor Crane AKA First Voice)

Your father vowed to cure them..who was your father? Why do you barely remember his face?"I came here to help others so they wouldn't suffer what I had to. Dr. Gart was mentally ill, like all the patients here. Killing him wouldn't solve anything, and only perpetuate the cycle. Despite my misgivings, you were one of our best bets. I wanted to face my fear, I spent too much of my life in it and lost so much to it.">>2704444This is good.>>2703731>But how did the placebo work?

I wanted to face my fear, I spent too much of my life in it and lost so much to it."The bat seems to be satisfied with your answer, along with the four people of your group. Wait...four? Are you seeing things? You caught a glimpse of an old man smiling at you before he disappeared, along with the rest of your headache. You actually fely great right now.>+2 sanity(4/6)" He still have his rationality even with the influence of the fear toxin. I am sure he can survive the job," the bat gaze at your uncle for a moment before turning back to the woman.if there is anger or annoyance, Alyce did not show it. Her professional facade seems to be a tight mask," Then as soon as he lose his mind and became like our patient, I will personally file his registration as a patient and lock him myself." Then she left... just like that. It seems she does not approve your rise as the new director of this facility.Finally, the group went to the security room. With another scanner and card swipe, the group was greeted with the securities playing cards and taking things easy like common street thugs. Annoyed, Cash bang the door and the guards surried away like rats and cockroaches." Must be because we have few prisoners," The chief security tried to reason before showing the security room.Cameras, alarm, armory, and control panels with strict schedule planner plastered on the wall. This room is much more funded than the other facility.>Security room (lvl 2)- Complete with non-lethal weapons, stun batons, and body armor.- They have camera and can control most of the doors from here.- They have good patrol schedule and protocol in case a riot broke out.- Security guard quality: poor.With all the tour done, your uncle went back to his cell while the commissioner and vigilante exit the building. Cpt. Cash was kind enough to show you your room. A simple office with mohagony table and leather chair, shelves containing mental illness and remedies, and an old computer. The chief of security left you alone to make yourself familiar and as you sat on the chair, there is a paper on the table.'A welcoming present. Think of this as your inhertance."An account number and a bank note....Oh... that's a lot of zeroes.>Gain 8 cash.After a few hours, you heard a knock and they came in with your permission. Dr. Gregory, Dr. Alyce, and Cpt. Cash. the head of each department."So...how can i help you?" you asks, still confused about their sudden appearance.
>>2704662Dr. Gregory was the first to speak," Since the Asylum is ready to open, we need you to make a decision for this month's project. Sorry but time is not with us"Alyce nods," The sooner we end this meeting, the quicker we resume our duties."With a sigh, you followed them to the meeting room. A simple room with oval table and plenty of chairs. As soon as the staff became comfortable, Cash take the first stage," Director, we need to quickly build the special containment unit first. Abnormal priso- Patients are the most difficult cases to deal with."Alyce was next," While I agree with Mr. Cash, I say we prioritize the construction of our own research lab in order to adapt to our patient's chaotic nature."Lastly, Dr. Gregory," I think we need more staff. Being understaffed is hard enough, especially taking care of these kind of patient. Everycay we might exceed our capacity to deal with certain cases."While you take in their opinion, you also remember the cells of the medium and maximum security level. They are way past cruelty and more like rabid animal shelter, keeping human in cages like animals.> You have 11 cash to spend (+3 for the montly budget)>Demolish and rebuilding the medium cells- 5 cashThis will make sure the medium security patients have comfort and treatment they need, increasing the chance of rehabilitation>Build special containment cell- 3 cashThis help contained special patients like croc, Mr, freeze, manbat, and so on.>Build research lab- 4 cashThis will open a tech tree for dealing with our patients efficiently>Hire staff ( Need to get 3 staff for optimal workforce):- Cheap staff - 2 cash- trained staff- 4 cash- Professional staff- 6 cashEach level of staff will increase security and morale.>Improve facility:-Staff lvl 2 - 2 cashIncrease the comfort of our staff, making them loyal and effective- Securty lvl 3- 4 cashLower the chance of riot and supression- Medical lvl2 -2 cashCan now perform surgeries fro heavy injuries(have fun planning your Asylum and also post what building you want to build and I will think about it)
>>2704694For reference in case you ahve your own idea:Basic building cost 4 cash unless they have specialized functionBuilding cells cost 3 cash unless they have specialized functionSpecialized staff will cost 5 cash unless they are special like TYGR force (SWAT like force)
>>2704694>Demolish and rebuilding the medium cells- 5 cash>Build special containment cell- 3 cashFrom my point of view, if we want to guarantee the financial wellbeing of this institution, we need to show results quickly, either by storing dangerous criminals that would bring the attention and funding of the authorities and a good rehabilitation record for the medium security patients.While, this is not optimal, I would suggest trying to bring interns to deal with menial work, ensuring experienced people can deal with patients. They wold, of course, be forbidden from the maximum security level.>Cheap staff

Works around the lack of intern appeal.This, to become more attractive to prospective staff.>Build special containment cell- 3 cashBecause diversifying brings in more $ to invest in actual treatment afterwards. Build the infrastructure first.
>>2705092Interns can work but I want a at least 4 trained guys also with them. Try to keep a good ratio
i also get the feeling that hiring interns is a good way to get in people who try to help and bust out the criminals
>>2705370And who's to say they won't come back after getting their license.
>>2705370Isn't that why we do background checks?>>2704746>While, this is not optimal, I would suggest trying to bring interns to deal with menial work, ensuring experienced people can deal with patients. They wold, of course, be forbidden from the maximum security level.He brought up this point.I figured interns who do well would be good candidates for upgraded staff if we have to pay them.>>2705377Like this.
>>2705362Increase the asylum rep or hire professional HR>>2705370This is a possibility too
>>2705384But who is going to do the background check? Most of the staff are either orderlies, security, or psychiatristsUnless you just dumped it to one of the staff or chief (which may impend their work)
>>2705386I am loving the quest and the protagonist. Its a breath of fresh air
>>2705392>Its a breath of fresh airHow so? I am curious
>>2705367>>2703731>- Staff moral: Abysmal.>>2704662>- Security guard quality: poor.Sounds good, but we'd need to figure out who's who first.>>2705365>Because diversifying brings in more $ to invest in actual treatment afterwards.Might be a bit beyond our scope to take on the big leagues when we can't even deal with the little leagues.>>2705386>>2705391Guess we hire professional HR then.>>2705395>>2701437Not the other anon, but I wrote about it in /qtg/.
>>2705392Do the hiring ourself while testing our Heritage trait on them.>>2705395My impression is generally quests focus on MC combat and barely touch the psychological aspect of things. Perhaps only void's alternative wormverse jack the ripper quest is as entertaining right now.
>>2705399>Do the hiring ourself while testing our Heritage trait on them.Now this is a good idea. Might impede our own work, but it's the best way to vet them.
>>2705398>Might be a bit beyond our scope to take on the big leagues when we can't even deal with the little leagues.Containing them would be a start. And so far both Scarecrow and Ivy seem to have been securely locked.
>>2705401Yep, you can do the hiring yourself. I'll put this as an option later
>>2705403>And so far both Scarecrow and Ivy seem to have been securely locked.>>2699935>"I..." You gulp, trying to resist his intimidating aura while lowering yourself like a defeated dog," I am barely holding myself. there are voice in my head and my co workers are part of a scarecrow cult that were experimenting on patients and myself. Ah! Here is the new strain of toxin."I don't think so. Do we know what happened to the Scarecrow cult?>>2705404Nice.
>>2705398>>2705399Well, the earlier vote did pick Therapist than detective but thank you for your opinions.Also, you guys euro or something? Or this is because of 4th?
>>2705406>Do we know what happened to the Scarecrow cult?I was going to report them using Tv/radio but let's skip them: Dr. Gart will be one of the patient here later and most of the cult were arrested.
>>2705406>I don't think so. Oh. For some reason I assumed the cult formed separately, without Scarecrow's direct influence.I agree, this needs further investigation.>>2705407Yep, Europe here.
>>2705407euro here too
>>2705407>Well, the earlier vote did pick Therapist than detective but thank you for your opinions.And it's good they did. >Also, you guys euro or something? Or this is because of 4th?I have an erratic schedule so I tend to check whenever.
>>2705415Righto. I'll try to update as close as possible with euro timelines and some muricans if i cant sleep.Also do you guys want to make a specific building? I can add them on tech tree later
I suggest we do the interviews ourselves and do background checks on them. (Can we spend sanity doing a double shift?)Then I suggest we send the curriculae of the interns to the Police Dpartment, to prevent infiltration as it happened in the past. We got a lot of goodwill from helping out those policemen , so I guess they will do a good job and I would rather start coperating with them as soon as possible.Maybe, we could help with victims interrogatins or something to compensate and keep the relationship with the police estable
>>2705417Well, I was thinking of perhaps buying watercolors and coal (basic painting equipment) as well as art manuals to help them exercise their creativity and decorate a bit.I would put an emphasis of watercolors because it must be one ofhe mos difficult things to turn into a weapon.
>>2701082>"NO!" The bat barks," You should never ask for their cooperation or their tools. These selfish villains will stab you in the back the moment you take your eyes off them."Does he have experience?>>2705410>Oh. For some reason I assumed the cult formed separately, without Scarecrow's direct influence.Same. Then I thought this was too suspicious when you brought it up.>I agree, this needs further investigation.Guess we have a job for security then, or to bring up with the others.>>2705421Sounds good.>>2705417>Also do you guys want to make a specific building? I can add them on tech tree laterA kitchen or cafeteria. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, as the idiom goes. Where do they get the food from?>>2705417>Righto. I'll try to update as close as possible with euro timelines and some muricans if i cant sleep.You're Euro too?
>>2705421>Can we spend sanity doing a double shift?That would be spending health than sanity.As for the cops, you do have Gordon's number for this kind of reason and he might give you a job as a consultant later but you will have to leave arkham.>>2705424> Art theraphy.This will go on the treatment Tech tree>>2705425> CafeteriaI'll put em on the Staff tech tree and for the food?

>>2705430>As for the cops, you do have Gordon's number for this kind of reason and he might give you a job as a consultant later but you will have to leave arkham.Damn. Guess we have a backup or side career.>Catering for now.How's the food?>Nah, asian but I am nocturnal.>nocturnalComrade!
>>2705434Ah crap! I forgot about that. The funding was a mistake and the current one is (3 cash/ month).The former was about the founding you have for this month>>2705436>How's the foodStandard but better than prison ones.>Comrade!Comrade!
>>2705438>Standard but better than prison ones.How are the prison ones?>Comrade!Comrade!
>>2705443>How are the prison ones?Nasty.You know the blocky american ones? It taste like 5 years old Curry Flavored Snickers>Comrade!Comrade!
>>2705445>Nasty.You know the blocky american ones? It taste like 5 years old Curry Flavored SnickersI pity those fools. Wasn't there protests that the food was inhumane?>Comrade!Comrade!
>>2705461Yep. This shit is fucking Inhuman but here in Arkham, no one give a shit about the patients. The only good thing about them is their cost effectivness. Imagine spending 50 cents/patient instead of spending 3 dollar/ patient. Multiply them by 100 or more>Comrade!Comrade~
>>2705463But didn´t we had space for only 60 or so?>ComradeKULAK
>>2705463Are they running an asylum or a prison? Feels like a for-profit one from its history.>>2705468>But didn´t we had space for only 60 or so?Probably has to do with all those riots and the games that took place.>KULAKo' shi--
>>2705468Just an example of the 'nutri-loaf' benefit. On the above example, you will spend 50 dollars rather than 300 dollars monthly. If we put it in arkham, it will be around 30 bucks/ month which is less than 1 cash>>2705470It was suppose to be an asylum but then it became supervillains dumping ground>Comrade!Byat!
>>2705477>It was suppose to be an asylum but then it became supervillains dumping groundIsn't that what prisons are for? Can we say no if they try to?
>>2705487Blame the bats for wanting to help them and the city's corruption shoving all unwanted into aArkham. He think this is more appropriate than the prison since mental patients dont belong in jail. Most of the trial result usually does that, especially thugs who want to avoid prison.Can't say no since it is the verdict from the court.
>>2705493>Can't say no since it is the verdict from the court.fuckWhat if we say we're at or overcapacity? Say we need more time for more facilities, staff, and funding? Or try lobbying it in our direction?
>>2705501They dont care. They want those maniacs to be out of their city.You can try those actions but it would be a beaucratic nightmare. GCPD can try to support you by temporary holding those patients in their jail for a specific period of time. You might want to try increasing relationship with GCPD.This is also the reason why villains are released with ambiguous reasons. My fav was the reason a supervillain was out and given to a hobo was because the hobo looks 'capable enough to work'
>>2705506>They dont care. They want those maniacs to be out of their city.Should we make a new facility: Arkham Prison?>You can try those actions but it would be a beaucratic nightmare. GCPD can try to support you by temporary holding those patients in their jail for a specific period of time. You might want to try increasing relationship with GCPD.Seems like it.>This is also the reason why villains are released with ambiguous reasons. My fav was the reason a supervillain was out and given to a hobo was because the hobo looks 'capable enough to work'Wow.
>>2705514>new facility: Arkham PrisonIt is basically a prison now but you can make more cells if you want later
>>2705518That's fair. So if they're all going to the asylum, what are the prisons doing?
>>2705527Blackgate penentiary usually jail sane villains like Bane or Penguin. Basically Alcatraz prison for sane criminals.Sometimes things get mixed up or they are full so they dump some criminals here.Yup. Gotham is full of corruption and incompetence.Also,Updating in few hours
>>2705535>Yup. Gotham is full of corruption and incompetence.Where's Harvey Dent when you need him?
>>2704694>>2705355"My first priority here is rebuilding the medium cellblock. That this is inhuman! Why aren't you guys not focusing on that first?"The meeting room is silent for a second and they look at you with weariness and...pity?"It is not required. As long as we can help them and studied their affliction, their habitat is not our focus," Dr. Sinner says with cold tone. The rest seems to agree with her, making you looks like a nepotism boss that do not know ho the system works here...which is almost true.These people have more experience in the Asylum than you and they agreed with inhuman treatment? You hav heard about the horrible rumors of Arkham Asylum but never thought it to be true.You move on," Next agenda is improving our staff faculty and building research lab. God knows you guys need more boost than this minimal treatment stuff. In any case, I want you guys to look for interns and send their files to me. I will appraise them myself."The head depatments looks at each other then nod before leaving the room.Cpt. Cash was the last to leave," Good job, kid. It's been so long since we treat these people as human than test subject. I'll handle the Intern and construction company.">This month's Agenda:- Rebuilding the Medium cellblock ( Medium Patients will not come this month)- Staff faculty improvement- Building research lab- hiring interns ( Will appear in week 2 and you have to finish them before end of the month. End of week 4 )> Head Approval:- Alyce Sinner (Head of Staff)Although she approved your decision, she still think Rebuilding the Cellblock decision is unnecessary. (+0)- Aaron Cash (Head of Security)Although he did not approve some of your decision, he is a bit relived to find you are more empathic then the previous directors.- Gregory Dumbell (Head of Medic)He think you are a bit clever with the intern thing and hope that you see the importance of medical facility when the shit hit the fan.
>>2705601oh yeah (+1) for both male head.Also I remember a good system from Prison Architech Grading System.>New Arkham Asylum-Reputation (-10): Villain dumping ground (WIll offer more dangerous Patients than low level patients.)>Patient System:>Low level Patient -Government will give you 0.5 cash for every new low level patient and will give 0.5 more upon rehabilitation.- Easier to rehabilitate and much more submissive.- Rehab will not give you a lot of rep>Medium level patient- Government will give you 1 cash for every patient and will give 1 more upon rehabilitation.- Are a bit harder to rehabilitate and can injure your staff.- some are more dangerous than other but not warrant enough reputation for the Max cellblock. Keep an eye on them.- Will give you a good rep for every successful rehab. >Max level Patient- Government will give you 3 cash for every new low level patient and will give 1 cash/month as long as they are still locked here. - Almost impossible to rehabilitate and can injure your staff.- These patients can also kill, turn staff against you, and cause riot.- Rehabilitating one will gave you a special reward.- high bonus for rep>Goverment program- Asylum Funding (+3 cash/month)this is the minimum funding they can give you. Improve the reputation and they might add more.Total funding (+5/month):(Gov. program+ 2 supervillain)Criticism is welcomed for the system. it is still a working progress.
>>2705617>>Max level Patient>- Government will give you 3 cash for every new low level patient and will give 1 cash/month as long as they are still locked here.>low level >>2704694>> You have 11 cash to spend (+3 for the montly budget)>>2705617>Total funding (+5/month):>(Gov. program+ 2 supervillain)Is the other money spent on upkeep?
>>2705622The 11 cash was spent for this month's building plan.Hmm.. should i make the cost report?
>>2705617>Also I remember a good system from Prison Architech Grading System.Good.>>2705629>Hmm.. should i make the cost report?Upkeep is fine. To know what the money drain is.
>>2705629>The 11 cash was spent for this month's building plan.>>2705622>>> You have 11 cash to spend (+3 for the montly budget)>>Total funding (+5/month):I was referring to the discrepancy between +3 and +5 income.
>>2705634>>2705641Ah right!Upkeep (-2):-Fixed cost (wages, electricit, water, special needs): -2-Variable cost (food, equipment, drugs): 0 (since we basically have only 3 patients (Uncle, scarecrow, ivy))Balanced budget (+3):( Total funding - upkeep)Is this sufficient? I dont want to crack open my big fundamental of accounting right now
>>2705641its 3/m base and 2*1/m for ivy and scarecrow who we have imprisoned currently
Imagine if we managed to actually cure one of the more severe cases here? Like say helping Crane get over his childhood trauma, or having Ivy take less extreme environmental plans.Of course we can just keep taking in Low and Medium Level Patients, fixing them up... it sucks though cause the moment they're cured our cash goes down and our upkeep catches up. Could we ask for something like a Patronage from say, Wayne Enterprises? They're into fixing the mentally unstable right?
>>2705653But the reward will be great, I assure you. Plus, you will have good rep for yourself and your family (Arkham Asylum.)Sure you can ask wayne for patronage but you might need to increase your rep first. Result is important if you want to have outside help.Anyways let's me get ready for your first week
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>2705601>Week 1:Already you can hear the construction workers breaking and building the asylum...your asylum. It's a bit weird that one day you were a victiom of a dangerous cult and the next you were the heir of Arkham. This is something out of a cartoon show yet everything felt so real. You dont even have your usual headache anymore except checking out the max level patient. Crane is still avoiding you while ivy is curious about you.The glimmering though from your stable mind told you that this is your home while other thoughts scream that this is a stranger's land. Still, you might want to explore these grounds and maybe you can uncover your past.Or you can spend time with your staff or your patients. They might tell you how things work here. You might also want to call the Mayor's office and infor them that you're ready to receive patients. that should increase your cash for a while.But if you wish to be a responsible person, you can check the construction crew for progress.>Choose 2 action> Call the mayor to send low level patients> Visit someone? ( Cash, Sinner, Dumbell, Jeremiah, Ivy, Scarecrow)> Explore Arkham> Check the construction crew> Write in
>>2705663>explore arkhamcan we like find secret areas and shit or is it just walking around the asylum ?>call the mayor to get low level prisonersthe low level yard is functional no need to have it empty
>>2705663>Call the mayor to send low level patientsMore cash for more staff! LET THE HEALING BEGIN!>Explore ArkhamSee if there aren't any Secret Rooms like there were in the Asylum games. See the sordid secrets that our Arkham Ancestors left behind.
>>2705663>Explore Arkham>Call the mayor to send low level patients
>>2705665>>2705667walking around the asylum. You dont know there are secrets here...yet
>>2705665>>2705667>>2705668give me your best 1d100
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>2705671Come on Arkham, we need some secrets!
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>2705671Down into the brimy depths we go.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>2705671watch this
>>2705677I mean... you got dubs so... good job?
>>2705663>>2705673>>2705674>>2705677First thing first, you dial the Mayor's office.A cute voice picked the call," Mayor's office, how may we help you?"Feeling nervous, you tried your best to be professional," This is Sebastian...err Arkham. I am calling to annouce that Arkam Asylum is ready to take patients but since we are currently remodeling the the Medium Security Cell, we can only offer to take low level patients."There is silence on the other side and a single sentence," Oh..."Oh? What the heck?Sound of click and clack was heard then the voice returned," It is done, Sir. Your patients will arrive next week and we pleade you to quickly open more room for 'other' patients. Good day."Wow... she just closed the line...How rude...> Arkham Asylum is officially open. You will have your first official patient next week.With your official work done, you take the opportunity to walk around your supposed property.Outside is not as bright as you thought. Dead vegetation with old gothic buildings appeared as if this whole island is abandoned, save for the yellow light from the window. This is a bit creepy and more like a sanitorium than asylum. There are also other buildings on the edges of the property and the sight of Gotham City across the water as if mocking you from afar. Mayhaps a plan to expand and add gardener might livened up this horrid place.> A new building to explore ( Botanical Garden)> Fixing the outer lawn ( 5 cash)This will increase the Asylum's rep as well as other things.Then something caught your eyes. A familiar sight in the stranger's land.A beetle surrounded by words etched on the very stone of Arkham.A Chronicles... of Arkham.A voice.... A voice appeared.... not of thhe young Jonathan Crane nor the Cold beast...No.. this is older...much more familiar...Every cell inside you knew the voice but every figment of imagination shred the image of the man itself...Then the voice sang...in it's wraithful tone.'I am the spirit of Amadeus Arkham. Through my actions, I have saved this cursed city, though my own curse is to forever remain in the shadows. My story is carved into the very soul of Arkham and will only be revealed to those dedicated enough to discover it.'It carved deep into your mind, carefully dissecting your psyce....>-6 Sanity (0/6)'It seems the prodigal child have returned but his ability is yet to mature. Here you will find my journal and stories. Here you will find your past. Find me and I shall reveal you our secret and your true inhertance'It throbs! It claws! It infect! It opens!A deep pain resurfaced.... and the world is shifting...deep...into the void...deep into the void...You are home...>Criminal Empathy revealed (lvl 1)When you are near criminally insane people or their works, your sanity will decrease. When your sanity is -3 or below, you began to hear the core of their personality and can summon one voice at a time. These voices have their own agenda.
>>2705698> can summon one voice at a timeAs long as you know where the voices comes from.I think that's it for today.
>>2705701Awesome stuff QM.
>>2705701how do you like the story so far? Any criticism or things that you want to see n the future?Dont be shy and post it here. Reminder that you guys can have relationship BUT exclusive only to Gotham citizen. Just be careful though, some might not like you at first.
>>2705705seems pretty interesting so far will definetely followwhen do you plan on running again ?
>>2705718Tomorrow and until We are done with the in-game month, then I take few days of rest
>>2705705I'm loving it m80! The managerial aspect of running the Asylum, maintaining proper moral, rep and cash while curing the insane and exploring the Island the asylum is located on? Fun stuff!I personally hope to turn this Asylum into a much more friendly environment. My one question is, how do you plan to handle break-outs? Like, will their frequency correspond to the level of our security force or as a result of low morale? Plus, what do WE do when they inevitably come for us?
>>2705705I've enjoyed it so farThe only real problem I have with your writing is that your grammar isn't that great, though that should work itself out with time.Our motives are complex
>>2705725>how do you plan to handle break-outs?There are many factor for outbreaks but the basic are low happiness of the patients, failure of certain events, and the plot of villains. Be sure to install Anti-Riot tech or it will be harder for you to contain it.>what do WE do when they inevitably come for us?Pray that you have a hidden escape hatch, pleanty of guard and guns, or/and learn some fighting skills. The voices might help but they are the Devil's deal
>>2705727I'll try proofreading carefully next timeToo complex for them but not us! we have several voices after all
>>2705738When are we going to learn MINDHACK
>>2705744Is that the escape puzzle game series? Rotary game or something yeah?Sadly only your mind get hacked not the other way around maybe in max level or studying under hatter
>>2705747Zero Escape series yeahAwFair enough
>>2705747Were we taught by Hugo Strange? I feel we were taught by Hugo Strange.
>>2705765That would be a great twist, innit?
>>2705774It would be, but who the hell else is left if not Strange? He's literally one of Batman's first rogues and is a master Psychologist... how could we find out, maybe go over some old college notes?
>>2705647>>2701099>>Current villain held>- Scarecrow>- Poison IvyWeren't they already imprisoned when we started? We shouldn't have been lacking it if it was the case.>>2705646Thanks.>>2705653>>2705657There's how we'll likely keep getting more patients with how large and screwy Gotham City is. >Low level Patient >- Government will give you 1 cash for every patient and will give 1 more upon rehabilitation.>Medium level patient>-Government will give you 0.5 cash for every new low level patient and will give 0.5 more upon rehabilitation.Low and mid-level patients don't give monthly income, so rehabilitating them is more profitable.>>2705657If there's truly no more patients left, then we've fulfilled our job and can diversify into another business like cooking. We can leverage our rep with getting things done as a good indicator of success with different businesses.>>2705727>The only real problem I have with your writing is that your grammar isn't that great, though that should work itself out with time.Agreed.>>2705738Great.>>2705698>When you are near criminally insane people or their works, your sanity will decrease. When your sanity is -3 or below, you began to hear the core of their personality and can summon one voice at a time. These voices have their own agenda.>These voices have their own agenda.That sucks.
>>2705988>Low and mid-level patients don't give monthly income, so rehabilitating them is more profitable.Well that's true but we don't wanna become some glorified detention facility. Besides, imagine if the Joker decided to pull another Bat-Man birthday scheme?
>>2706003>>2700800>If you want. This is your show after all. The Canon arkham is already a hellhole that make a normal fraud into a criminal mastermind like The Great White SharkYeah, but we are currently a glorified prison with a history of worsening conditions, so there's that to consider.I want to start with the low-level and mid-level patients to build up the experience, training, and knowledge needed to deal with the max-level ones. >>2705398>Might be a bit beyond our scope to take on the big leagues when we can't even deal with the little leagues.There have been no cured max-level patients in the past, aside from the temporary cures, so we should try something different.
>>2705617>Medium level patient>- some are more dangerous than other but not warrant enough reputation for the Max cellblock. Keep an eye on them.>>2700800>>2705417Can we make a high-level cellblock for the more dangerous ones? Would providing a classification for that allow for greater funding for the more dangerous patients we already had that were miscategorized?
>>2706023>Can we make a high-level cellblock for the more dangerous ones?Yes you can but you will have to research it first though because they will have different system than the medium security.>Would providing a classification for that allow for greater funding for the more dangerous patients we already had that were miscategorized?Yeah, Commissioner Gordon will be pleased with that AND you can create a countermeasure to add bonus when dealing with them
>>2706406Sane, let me say that this quest is fucking bonkers. It´s off to a good start, the prologue is interesting, a decent cast of characters have been introduced and I really want to interact with all of them, as well as make Arkham a proper mental healthcare facility.Basically, I am hyped. Keep the the tension rising, never let us get entirely comfortable and you will make for the based QM you are set up to be YOU DAMM KULAK .Now for the quest itself:-I will try to create soon a word document where we can try to list off all the things that could go wrong (infiltration, sabotage, riot, finalcial problems..etc.). Security isn´t absolute, but every precaution we take is another obstacle in our oponents path.-I feel like we also should classify our voices according to agenda and traits. That way, we can get out more of them.Now for the game part, I have come up with two ideas.First is making sure that the patients get out of here not only with their mind functioning, but also with a roof over their heads and a job. Our responsability doesn´t end when the patients go through our doors. Perhaps, we could tike a deal with job agencies to have the minimum level patients learning some trade and gainin a little money, or install a workshop in Arkham.-Also, we could try to convert the garden into a soccer field and try to form a league with staff and patients. Sport helps bring down tenssion and agression levels, as well as develop a team spirit valuable in society. I would support establishing a custom such as rugby´s, where opposing teams have a meal together after each match.-An interesting vid about problems in modern day America mental healthcare, so we can try to avoid pitfalls.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGY6DqB1HX8
>>2706473>Going over the top careThis is a shining example of Altruism and of course you can BUT it wont be easy though. You need to hire professionals and have a patron to help you with the job Wink Wink Wayne Wink>convert the garden into a soccer field and try to form a league with staff and patientsActually this idea is great. Haven't thought about it too. I'll add them in the tech tree.As for the rest, I'll try making a pastebin for em.
>>2706504Shit now that I am reviewing the thread we didn´t check the construction. This might be too paranoid, but someone might have installed tunnels, explosives or something like that.Maybe we would want to try to leverage our relationship with the Plice to doa background check of the people who worked building the new wing. Hopefully they are a respectable company and can use them exclusively for future projects.
>>2706528Now you're getting it!That 1d20 is a weekly event rolls and the higher the better
>>2706547Hey, at least we have got a task for the interns, painstakingly measuring every surface to make sure it fits with the schematics of the building.Also, do you have a regular time for questing or going to put up a twitter to announce it?
>>2706586Not really. For now, I will update as much as I can and using twitter... I am avoiding that because I have alread a twitter for another quest. This quest is actually to understand how managing work in questing but it got fun so might continue for a bit
>>2706504>Actually this idea is great. Haven't thought about it too. I'll add them in the tech tree.>>2706473Good idea. Is it possible to have both a garden and a sports field? I'd like to have the garden for production, research, and therapeutic purposes.
>>2706635you have the old botanic gardens for that and Arkham island is large enough for a lot of expansion but for now you need to build from the ground up.Expansion is expensive.Also I am using Arkham Asylum game map for reference
>>2706643Lel, give Scarecrow a typewriter and some writing advice books and use his skill at creating horror stories to gain funds through royalties.
>>2706659>Not making him into a film director.That guy want to see fear with his own very eyes. Put him in front of the movie screen and let him enjoy all those fears
>>2706668Well, we cannot really put an film set inside his cell. But hell, an old typewriter might keep the fella distracted enough from his schemes. At least until we bring him the reviews of his workI am considering this idea as a detail we could have with him as we scared him so much the first day.
>>2706677Let's put this into one method for his therapy. Cant wait to see what you guys can muster for the other villains
>>2706616What's the other quest?>>2706643>>2706687Our future has many opportunities.>>2706659>>2706668>>2706677kek. Now these are ideas.>>2706687>Mr. Freeze's rehabilitation>Hire him as an ice cream man.
>>2706703As long as you deal with his primary problem, Mr. Freeze is easy to deal with.>What's the other quest?Quirkless Don't tell the other tho.
>>2706712>As long as you deal with his primary problem, Mr. Freeze is easy to deal with.His waifu is dead?>Quirkless Don't tell the other tho.I can start to feel the familiarity now.
>>2706715 Help him fixing his waifu the man is pussywhipped>I can start to feel the familiarity now.Shh... I feel I lacked the knowledge for district managemnt so I make this quest for a prototype
>>2706703>Mr Freeze ice cream manMy sides have just gone into orbit anonBut really, mr freeze is a tough nut to crack. He went into villainy to gather money to save his wife´s live. He is supposed to be a brilliant researcher, but the condition of his wife was so rare (maybe even unique) none wanted to fund the cure.Villainy was a means to an end to him, and as a normal researcher he is nlikely to gather enough funds to fund the cure for his wife. Maybe he could be shown that his wife wouldn´t have approved of his ways but if he renounces to his villainy it would be like forfeiting the life of his wife while there is still hope.Perhaps we might be able to help him patent his absurdly advanced research on cooling to make enough money to help his wife. Though this carries the question, why hasn´t he done it yet?
>>2706712I will use this information for good
>>2706732>why hasn´t he done it yet?Well, ya gotta do your psychiatric stuff first on him.>>2706737Shhh
>>2706732>My sides have just gone into orbit anonGlad to have brought some laughs.>Perhaps we might be able to help him patent his absurdly advanced research on cooling to make enough money to help his wife. Though this carries the question, why hasn´t he done it yet?>>2706746>Well, ya gotta do your psychiatric stuff first on him.You know how many characters don't take the practical option in fiction? Especially superheroes and supervillians? Chances are this is the case. Mr. Freeze was so caught up in ways to get up as much money as possible while hiding it, he forgot he actually had a legitimate product.
>>2706752He is actually too caught up with his waifu that he forgot he can do good. To him nothing else matter except for Nora so he didnt bother going legit. Doing crime is the best shortcut to get cash and resume the cure
>>2706746>>2706473Great quest QM, it has given me the gumption to replay through Arkham Asylum.One thing that I think we should focus on is Staff/Guard loyalty. The biggest problem in the games and comics usually lie with a staff member helping a patient stage a breakout. Is this quest set before or after Harley Quinn made her villain debut?
>>2706777After.Pre-harley's Arkham director was Sharp
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>2705698(Since you guys are still here, Let's see what you guys want for week 2. Also ignore the roll)Imagine you are in your bed and ready to sleep. You can feel your body relaxing and eyelids heavy. The bugs were buzzing and the moonlight shone through your open window, letting a cold night breeze.Then you blink.The scene changes. Early birds chirping, crunching on the last night bugs. The sunlight slowly changing their shape as the sun rise sky high.You could have sworn that it was night a second ago...>Week 2After talking a stroll on around the island, you are suddenly back at your office and the date have changed. Your muscles complains of the tiredness but your mind is clean. They are fresh as the mountain dew.>Sanity increased (7/7)Walking to the staff faculty, the security and orderlies greets you as you walked by. It is as if you were their close friends. WHile this might seem beneficial, it worries you.What the hell happened?You do not know. your memory is gone, blank as a fresh sheet of white paper.Everything still functioning as you chew the salad but...What the hell happened in the last few days?Going back to your office, Dr. Sinner approaches you with a begrudging respect," The patients are here...sir."Sir?"O-oh. Send the report to my office," you quickly act, riding the flow. She nodded and went her way.This is too bizzare...In your office, there are stacks of papers ready to be worked on. They are mostly Interns and there are a lot of them...>Intern documents (0/200)On the other side, It is the new patients report.>PatientsLow security level.- 6 people transferred from HomeSweet Medical Institution- While the toxin is already gone, the mental damage is still there.- Expected recovery: 3 month.

Guys, we must check the construction workers. Else someone will put some scret passage in our facility.You said it would be possible to sacrifice health for a double shift? Then bring it on. Would that give us an extra timetable?Also, let´s use our employees dammit, they are here for something>Call the head of the security, tell him to check the construction site and do basic background checks on the workers. We don´t want to ned up with a gruyere style asylum.He won´t have to do much security with only the minimum and maximum level patients.>Visit our uncle.He is the past head of this asylum. If someone can advice us how to run it and avoid any rookie mistakes, is him.>Do the fucking interns backgrounds
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>2707832Welp rolling. Also, what about double shift to cal the commisioner to handle backgroun checks and call our uncle?
>>2707835Never>>2707836>>2707838background check will be included in the paperwork so no need.BUTIf you want double shift: I can offer you 1 extra action/ 2 health. Only once/ week.Your current health is 10/10. the only way to recover is to use 1 action for resting.Do you guys want to use doubleshift? If so, what do you want to do?
>>2707841>Double shiftLet´s check that fuking construction crew. Maybe call on Gordon to help.Damm we eally need a HR to do this work for us. While we ae on the phone with Gordon can we ask him if he knows someone for the job, especialized in background checks and some HR general background. Former police would be nice.
>>2707836>>2707838+1, shame it's too late.
>>2706857Cracking your knuckles, you sit on your chair and began working. As you read one by one, there is something nagging your mind...HALF OF THIS ARE FRAUDSWho the hell named their son Facey McFace? Even doublechecking on google or registration provided nill result. Someone even post a dead guy as their profile picture. Wait... is that a cat?What the fuck?! how the heck did they managed to get these people inside?You tossed half of them down the trash while looking at more promising ones.Christ... this is too much for you...>New goal (0/100)Feeling more paranoid than before, you began calling the GCPD for formality and the receptionist answered," GCPD, how may we help you?""This is Dr. Sebastian. May I talk to Commissioner Gordon for Background checking?"The line went on hold and after a minute, the receptionist answered," We are sorry but the commissioner is busy today. I can make an appointment for next week or do you want another officer? Officer McCreed is experienced in background checking.>Background Check (-10 from result) (once only)>Wait for next week>Contact Officer McCreed>>2707844>>2707849For DoubleShift:> check the construction worker (2 voted)Anyone else?

Cash has HR suggestions?
>>2707858This is quite unfortunate, but beggars cannot be choosers. Let´s do a background check with him and hope for the best, we cannot waste another day. Also mention that we are looking for a new HR head, hopefully with experience in background checks and basic HR training (labor disputes, events...etc.). Optimally, it should be someone that has worked in or with the police. Call us if you have any suggestions.
>>2707866Wait, is it done automatically next week? Screw this, just leave the request for some candidates for HR. We can wait another wek before the construction is done.
>>2707863Once for this Intern work>What'd be the difference? If you check it today, you can have an extra action whne you roll high for next week intern work since you dont need to keep checking their background.>recommendation for HRWith the commissioner...hmm... I'll put it as maybe since you barely know Gordon but Cash can recommend some people for HR
>>2707868Then, I would rather do it today. Extra actions are too valuable to pass up
>>2707866>>2707867> Leaving a messageSure, the receptionist can do that
>>2707867>>2707810>Cash only do the calling and setting up things. the rest is on youDon't think so, we still have to do it.>>2707869+1>>2707870>>2707868Great, let's do that.
>>2707858"Alright, let me talk to Officer McCreed please....And could you pklease leave a message for the commissioner that we are searching for a head HR, preferably connected to the police force. ""Will, do sir," And the hlold tune began to sing for few seconds until a.."Offisah McCreed, Yous wants to make background Check?" The officers have a heavy accent..."Alright...Wait, arent ya from dat loony place?" he asked and you cringe."Yeah?""Sucks to be you then," his laugh is a mixture of drum and a choking hyena.---That was exhausing,,,>Result :68 (highest roll) - 10 (Bacground check) = 58>Remaining work (58/100) There are still some work but you will leave that for later. For now, you check on the new patients.---The patients looks much more better than when they stayed in HomeSweet and some of them are familiar. Even Mrs. Pennyfolk is here."Dr.Arkham," the voice of Dr. Sinner quickly caught your attention," Checking on the new patient?""Yes, Dr. Sinner," You answer professionally." We have diagnosed that most have PTSD from the Fear Toxin but we have the available medicine for that. There is no need for extra treatment, only time," She concluded her analysis. Looking at the patients, it seems PTSD is the right diagnosis. Shaky hands, dark bags under their eyes, and twitchy reflexes.Still... you felt her cold analysis lacked human empathy.>Talk to the patients>Talk to Dr. Sinner>Leave and do something else>Write in
>>2707880>talk to the pacientswell we have unique experience with fear toxin that might help
>>2707880Sinner likes to think herself as a profesional so let´s respect her criteria. Maybe we can win some brownie points with her.I suggest we go talk to our uncle while we are here. He can gives some tips into how to avoid any disasters or perhaps more info about Akham itself.
>>2707894+1. >>2707880>>Leave and do something elseWould not starting with the Uncle have reduced our available time?>>2707890Probably, but it's more an after-effect than the Fear Toxin itself.
>>2707896>Would not starting with the Uncle have reduced our available time? Depends actually. If you pick visit uncle first, you can have 3 Q's but for this time, you can only ask 1 Q's>>2707894>>2707896>>2707890Visiting uncle it is
>>2707880But she is the head after all and she knows what she's doing. Doubting her work is almost like a sin.heh."Carry on then, Dr. Sinner," you nod for a second before going to your uncle.You have a lot of question for him, especially about your family and this asylum. Maybe you can have some answer for n->Event time!"Sir, please leave the premise!" One of the guard shouts, making a commotion neat the front door."Come on, man. I need to shit," Said one of the construction worker in a jumpsuit and a yellow helmet." Your company provide those," The guard insisted but it doesnt deter the worker."Nah, man. that shit stink. Please, I won't tell anyone," the worker plead before slipping him something.The guard gab his hand and return the bribe, shaking his head with a scowl.>Intercept!>The guard had it covered
>>2707904>intercept!"is there a problem, gentlemen ?"
>>2707904A security guard returning a bribe? This makes me feel proud.>InterceptCommend that man about his attitude. Ask both the name of the guard and the construction worker. Have a conversation with the foreman about the bribery case and ask for that worker to be expelled from the project and also ask for any info the company has on him.Promise the guard to mention his attitude to Cash, but remember him to always mention this kind of incidents to his superiors.To be fair, I wold rather deal with the construction company now than visit uncle for one question.

Calmly walking towards the commoction, you put your best smile.hahaha"Is there a problem, gentlemen ?"You said with a smooth tone."Sir! No, Dr. Arkham sir," The guard quickly salute."Who are you, hm?" The worker rudely asked." A doctor. Someone who can cure you," You grin with strange euphoria then turn to the guard," My friend, what is your name?""J-jeffry, sir," Nervousness creeping inside him."Good. Good," You nod rapidly."Hey, Who the he-""Now, I am asking the question here. Who are you?" this annoying pest nee dto be taught a lesson."I am just a wo-"hahahAHAHAHAHAHAH"lies!

He quickly left, dragging the wounded worker...Y-you have...things to do. Yes..things.---The walk is bearable for now but you quickly rush to your uncle, occassionally using the wall for support. Finally you've reached his room, already placed on the lower security."Nephew? You look sick." the man said with slight concern."It's fine..." you grunt.>Ask a question and only 1

The man looks at you with pity," It is impossible to be sane here but try to find a hobby or something.Gahhahahaha"Why...is...he..laughing...."Then a beginner's advice?" the boy asked, holding his cracked mind."Make sure you keep the madness away from everyone. Locked them. Study them. BUT Never interact with them. never be tempted by them. They are the devil and you are a sheep in wolf suit," It is as if a frgament of sanity returned to the man...but only in that moment.He returned tobecome a clown again.Weary, the boy dragged himself to his office while the ex-cop turned chief security began their brutal sweep. The cop cursed himself for his negligent as he found traces of tampering and impersonation.Soon they will find a bodies in the sea, bloated like a disgusting sponge.But that is not today...Today the boy reached his office.His temple.

Desirable qualities, in order: Good skill at background checks, better if police trained; a good mediator and finally, someone who can act as liason between Arkham and other groups (press, town hall.etc.) How much funds would cost the head of HR?*Fourth issue: Ask about their experiences in Arkham and about how previous directors took care of eveything. Why do they think that Arkham was and is such an unstable organization and how can we prevent glaring mistakes?*Fifth issue: (Sinner only) Dr. Sinner, while I have to admit you might be the best prepared mental health profesional in Gotham City, I fear you focus more on the illnesses our patients have instead of on the patients themselves. I won´t ask you to be their friend, but several studies have shown that a pleasant enviroment accelerates recovery and enviroment can be easily achieved by showing the patiens you care about them as individuals. Try to refer to them more casusally, interest yourself in their well-being and listen to them even if what they are talking about is not directly relevant to their recovery, within reasonable limits of course. The new interns will be coming son, and in the off chance some decide to stick with us I would rather they don´t think of Arkham Asylum as a prisión.

At least they are resuming the construction again with your guards eyeing them cautiously.One thing you know is that the thug you stabbed is still here.

>>2708507Yeah but I think he meant week 1 since he was discussing it.Hmm... I'll take a brief nap. Cold doesnt help shit with thinking
>>2708510>Cold doesnt help shit with thinkingMaybe Mr. Freeze has a cure.
>>2708480Wuh, lads.Well, in honor of our Asian QM, who wants to commit to a death by overworking?
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>2708494Forgot
>>2708574Certainly. The highest, most honorable way to die.
>>2708580I want to put out a double shift, but I don´t know how to use it. Maybe we could a taser and some lessons it from the armoryWell, let´s just think positively. Imagine we get a 20 next week and Batman sends Robin camouflaged as an intern
>>2708588Well, we could ask Cash to interrogate the man we stabbed with a pencil before calling Gordon to just get him to jail. Don´t really want to wake up the Joker again.
>>2708588>>2708618Good ideas.>>2708588>Maybe we could a taser and some lessons it from the armoryWe'll likely be very close to an enemy in a confrontation, so something defensive or an escape option would be a massive boon. >>2699730We were the runner and alerter, and they might still need someone who can do that.>>2708588>Batman sends Robin camouflaged as an intern>camouflaged >inb4 he still comes in wearing tights.
>>2708624Sweatpants are not proper attire for office work, young man! Get changed now or you are fired.
>>2708630>Robin: "These sweatpants are a symbol of justice! It would be an insult to take them off!">Cpt. Cash kicks down the door to the room off its hinges.>Cpt. Cash: “I like your spunk kid, you’re hired!”
>>2708645>Sinner fixes a dissapointed glare on themuntil they repair the door and change into proper clothes.
>>2708624>The upgrade for level 3 security includes potted plants.
>>2708707>Patients and criminals alike fear the potted plants. >Security and police respects them. >Dr. Sebastian and Poison Ivy loves them.
>>2708480What used to be a towering stacks of paper, now reduced to only 20 profiles and alread background checked. You are sure these intern will not harm the Asylum in anyway possible...hopefully.>Intern paperwork cleared> 1 staff will be gained next month for 3 month.Checking your mail, the commissioner have not sent any possible candidates yet. Hopefully he will next week.With your job done, you began calling the heads for a meeting and they comply. Taking your time to the meeting room, you can see the medium cells being widened and larger than the cages you saw before. A burst of pride on your chest, knowing that this small changes will help your patients.As you entered the room, your three head department awaits.You greet them with a tired smile,"Thank you all for coming. I know this seems rushed but we have to discuss the future of this asylum">First issue: We will ask one by one, what happened last week, starting from Sinner."Before we start there is something I wish to discuss. It's err.... about the first week we are here. I kinda forgot what happened in week 1... I mean I forgot to write it in my diary," you put on the best goofy smile you had and the staff just sigh."Dr. Sinner?" and the spotlight went to her.Dr. Sinner: Well 'sir'. When we met after our initial meeting, you've returned from your stroll with a 'satisfied' face. Your body language shows familiarity and confidentiality, as if you knew this island all your life. We spoke of psychiatry and we were discussing about the old method of Pavlov. i do not know why you're interested in that basic concept but it seems you are 'passionate' about it.Dr. Dumbell: Well... We went for a drink, remember? Of course not! That wine you brought for us was divine! I recall it was 1880 vintage from the old Gotham winery. I hope you remember the hidden stash because i do not mind drinking that stuff again.Cpt. Cash: Lucky you guys got his good side. What we saw when you visited the maximum patients was not...nice. You were there, silent and staring past the glass. Those eyes are dark and freaky. No offense, sir. Then you left the room with a not 'nice' smile. The patients were disturbed by that too.(Brb buyin food)
>>2708810>Second issue: Money and how to spend it. How much time can we delay the acceptance of new high level patients, before they are forced onto us?Three of them: Extreme Isolation Chamber. Focus on this structure first.Sr. Sinner: It is our primary objective that berserking super-patients are secured they will not harm others. The city council will send high level patients here as soon as they are captured and receive their verdict. Pray that the city is calm.Cpt. Cash: Not only it serve as an isolation cell, it is also serve as a punishment and containment for the deadly. They are the most safest cell we have.Dr. Dumbell: Lad, I know you want this to be an asylum but sometimes we have to contain them first and let them simmer. They are also expensive and top of the line tech (10 cash). But remember to get more staff!Dr. Sinner: Agreed, we need researchers after the research building is done>Third issue: Possible candidates for a position in HR. Desirable qualities, in order: Good skill at background checks, better if police trained; a good mediator and finally, someone who can act as liason between Arkham and other groups (press, town hall.etc.)Cpt. Cash: Old Joe is going to retire soon. I bet Commissioner Gordon will send his profile to you. That man is a great speaker and a good man. Get him fast before he change his mind.>Fourth issue: Ask about their experiences in Arkham and about how previous directors took care of eveything. Why do they think that Arkham was and is such an unstable organization and how can we prevent situatons like last week´s?They all went quiet.Dr. Sinner: Your uncle was a respectable man and he let the doctors studied the maximum security patients through the glass wall. His priority was to contain them first and study their mindset. And that is waht we do before you came. Contain and study.Cpt. Cash: Arkham Asylum is the dumping ground for all the crazies, especially the clever bastards. You can't prevent them, only contain them. They always have plan, that's why I want you to invest in security.Dr. Dumbell: Don't forget the medical department. We can barely save people when we don't have proper equipment
>>2709004>Fifth issue: (Sinner only) Dr. Sinner, while I have to admit you might be the best prepared mental health profesional in Gotham City, I fear you focus more on the illnesses our patients have instead of on the patients themselves. I won´t ask you to be their friend, but several studies have shown that a pleasant enviroment accelerates recovery and enviroment can be easily achieved by showing the patiens you care about them as individuals. Try to refer to them more casually, interest yourself in their well-being and listen to them even if what they are talking about is not directly relevant to their recovery, within reasonable limits of course. The new interns will be coming soon, and in the off chance some decide to stick with us I would rather they don´t think of Arkham Asylum as a prison.Dr. Sinner: Duly noted.After what seems hours of discussions, you are satisfied with the meeting," Thank you for-Suddenly the door slam open and one of the high level guard approaches," Sir! We have an emergency! We are under attack!">Rolled 2 Event interference!Cpt. Cash curses," Get the alarm now! You all, get to safety!"The alarm blares with the siren and the red light covering the island. Who is the world is attacking?Then you heard the sound of a woman with megaphone shouting," Yohooo~ I am baaack! You folks missed me? I sure don't but puddin is in a badd mood because SOMEONE MESSED WITH HIS PLANS!"You swallowed hard. That's you..."Gets me the one responsible and y'all might be spared," The demand ended with the sound of something getting crushed.Shit! Shit! Shit!>What should you do!!!!( I dunno how to speak Bronx)
>>2709029Welp, time for me to sleep.Good luck fellas

Sorry but you know I hate to see my Puddin sad. You will know it when you got a pardner, Cash." Doctor... wait a minute.."Doctor Quinzel?" You look cautiously at the staff and the tried to escape it except..."Dr. Harleen Quinzel was our new psychiatric intern assigned to Joker.

Clearing your throat, you began to speak to the lunatic," Mrs. Quinzel, I am Dr. Arkham. Nice to meet you.""Wait, you a newblood? Wadda ya want?" She became impatient."Please have a seat. I'm assuming you're here about the secret tunnel that I prevented from being finished?" "YEA! GET READY FOR AN ASS WHOPPIN, DORK!" She suddenly screams. Mood swings?" Violence is never a solution.

>>2710888>>2710875>>2710876>>2710879Wait a minute, can we use the tear gas on the minions while we fight Quin? Granted it will carry the risk of us getting caught in the radius but if we time it right like with the original plan it should also incapacitate a large amount of the minions or distract/freak them while our lads get in their to knock them to pieces.
>>2710905Your mind deems it risky as it have a chance to kill the hostage thus failing the objective.
>>2710911Harley. The crux of the plan is harley becoming your meatshield
>>2710909A fair assessment. However any choice we make will carry the risk of the hostages dying regardless.
>>2710913Wait so the plan is to stun Quin and use her as a meatshield? That's plain suicidal if not just stupid, she might be willing to actually die or have some plan up her sleeve even if she's not the Joker himself.
>>2710920That is why you damage her limbs. This is your first month after all.I aint that sadistic yet.

I need your gear and armory," You ordered.Everyone looks shocked. FInally the man answered,"Why?""I intend to meet her demands. One death can spare the staff. Get me the riot gear.""Dr. Arkham, this is crazy," He tried to reason. Not enough discipline. Note to self: Dock his paycheck."This is an order. Cpt. Cash," You repeate the order with much more gruff tone.He still refuse," No! This is suicide. I will be da-""He is right. One death can spare all," Dr. Sinner agreed with you but her eyes shed no compassion. A machiavellian type and it seems she have her own agenda. You are her obstacle. Clever girl"Bu-""Dr. Campbell, prepare for emergency surgery. Cpt. Cash, time is wasting." Finally he nodded. He lead you to the armory while the others do their tasks.The captain helped you donned the gear while the team watches. It is heavy and might impede your movement."There. You know, Sebastian?

Ya make a girl happy, Doctor," The target smiles sweetly while coming close with her sledgehammer. She is close but not enough reach for the baton.Then the target made a childish pout," Ahh. Blue eyes and brown hair? that's a good combo! Shame that I have to do THIS!" She suddenly pulled a small machine gun. An uzi.

>>2710936>Stay stillWorst comes to worst we get shot in the leg and she comes over to try and finish us off with the sledgehammer which will give us the advantage of shoot and slam.

>>2710950At least I'm catching on instead of fumbling in the dark.
>>2710936And so you stayed."Dance! Dance! KYAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!" The target screams with glee as the bullets shreds your legs. The armor can only hold so many before breaking and so 2 bullets were lodged in your left leg.You slumped down, unable to stand.Acceptable setback.-4 Heath (4/10)"And here comes tha nutcracker~" The target come closer and closer.Soon opportunity will rise.>Roll 1d100 BO3

Hammer time!!"Now!"No." A small grin on your face as you pull the gun and press the trigger.The target is unable to move from shock and momentum. Half for her left thing and half for her other. Three bullets ludges on her two thights.Screaming, she lost momentum and fall. You quickly stab the baton on her bloody wound and delivered the electric theraphy. Weakened, you take the chance to dislocate her right arm with the butt of the gun and use a fresh gun to deal with the other.The goons were still flabberghasted as you locked her neck on your left and jam the pen just underneath her neck, near her spine."

It seems that you saved them from Harley Quinzel but you have no full memories of that.... Just shreds of images. Just like dreaming. you spend the rest of the week recovering there. It was a torture, especially the food. At the end of the week, you are sbound to a wheelchair and Nurse Samantha became your pusher. Blonde, a bit of hourglass shape, blue eyes, and a bit of tanned skin.Every sick man's dream.The staff became very respectful to you, hailing you as heroes. Out of the three heads, Cpt. Cash was still appaled by your display of brutality. Still, he respected your decision.>rolled 16 dice event.But that's not all the surprise. This week, you've got another present.Samantha slowly push your wheelchair away from the crowds of hungry reporters. you feel the nauseating heat from their cameras and body."Sir! Is its true you dealt with them?""Dr. Arkham! A Word!""Do you think what you did was right? Dr. Arkham, please!"Then your hero showed up. Sunglasses, manly chin, and an oozing charisma."People! People, please! Do not torture this poor doctor! As I was saying, this is the first time in years since Arkham Asylum actually defend themselves. Perhaps this is a new dawn for Arkham Asylum."Jonathan 'Old Joe' Gurwich was a man of charisma and duty. Commissioner Gordon sent him here to help you deal with the goons but instead you defeated them with no death. Impressed, he transferred here to help Arkham's reputation.>+2 Arkham Reputation (-8 Reputation)>Gained Old Joe With him handling things, you can now focus on other important things.>Due to injury, you only have 1 action>Take a stroll>Check the patients>rest> Visit someone>Write in

>>2711139>Check the patients
>>2711139check the patients
We should use the money we have to upgrade our infirmary to perform surgeries. Alos, I would recomend getting gas masks for our guards with bio filters (for the fear toxin and the aphrodisiacs our local villains might subject us)Finally, we need to implement a protocol to deal with this kinds of events.I am sorry for not voting, but we should keep in mind to play the villains´personality against them. For example, we could have suggested Harley that the Joker send her as a escort for us for a meeting we both had arranged. That way, we could have played her paranoia of not dissapointing Mr.J to stall for time while remaining sane.
>>2711149Eh, it's okay matey.There's always next time.
>>2711149Fear Persona will be reat doing that
>>2711139>Meet Old JoeLet´s talk with him to make sure he starts doig things for us. Like looking for a construction company which is not as easily infiltrated.Could we spend the money we alread have in a better infirmary to recover quicker? Gregory will be proud.
>>2711153The point is, I would rather not relaly in the Persona´´s at all. No matter ow useful if we let them get a grip into our mind we are done. And the idea of cycling between the to keep them balanced will only diminish our presence into our own mind.
>>2711158God dammed, that was a mess.
>>2711158Man you're sharp! I was thinking you guys will figure to cost of using them on thread 3 or 4

>>2711162>>2711158I mean honestly, it's an interesting powerI wonder exactly legacy entails, our ancestor's madness or something?Anyway, we should only use it sparingly
>>2711162Have you considered the possibility that there are some who have come to this conclusion but reasoned to themselves that the price is worth it despite it being greater than what could be fathomed in the depths of a broken mind?
>>2711167I do. Such are the sides of the two coinsBut that's what makes us human, innit?
>>2711170Indeed, such is the nature of humanity. If only the simpler things in life were more kinder to us all.
>>2711170We shouldn´t expect any updoots this night, yes?
>>2712055Sorry, fall asleep and fucking pc ate my post.>>2711139>>2711142>>2711145>>2711148>>2711155>>2711163After last week's debacle, it is a refreshing thing to do your REAL job.Leaning back on the wheelchair, you ask your assistant to the low level block. "Nurse Samantha, would you kindly escort me to our patients?""Certainly, Dr. Arkham," the nurse let out a coy smile.The time passes with idle chatter. She have a small family outside Gotham and wishes to see the glamour of being a city folk, possibly a farmer family. Nursing someone to heath is one of her joy in living, being the oldest of her siblings. Poor luck sent her here. To Arkham Asylum.hmm... A warm maternal instinct? Let's hope she survived this accursed place.Arriving at the block, the blonde Dr. Sterlings greets you with his pearly white smile and it's not for you of course," Dr. Arkham, to what do we owe you the pleasure?" The blonde and vain Burt Sterlings. His diagnosis method is first word analysis and literature therapy."How are the patients, Dr. Sterlings?" You ask, ignoring his usual jabs."The normal procedure are working. They just need time, good night rest and a good book. Can I recommend you to a bookstore I know? They offered used books for new libraries." The man swipes his golden hair while glancing at Nurse Samantha.This fucker wants you to build a library," Great jod, Dr. Sterlings. Now let me talk to one of the patients. Don't worry, she knows me."The doctor nodded while the nurse follows your direction."Oh and about the library," Dr. Sterlings' eyes lightens at our words," I'll thank about it." His head dropped slightly and mutters some words at you. Probably curses and such.Entering on of the room, a familiar person awaits at the edge of her bed. Her eyes are normal and healthy. No more bags or wrinkles." Good day, Mrs. Pennyfork. How are you feeling?""Ah! Dr. Sebastian," The woman is happy to see you," or Arkham..was it?""Dr.Sebastian is fine too."---After interviewing with some of the patients, it is clear that they missed their family. Perhaps you make a permission for family visits. Building a family visitation centre might be better fro patient's recover in the long haul." Working hard, director?" The nurse muses while escorting you to your office."That it does. this is more productive than last time and...more relaxing." you answered.The same old routine.Exchange banters. Fake smiles. Interviews. Coffee breaks. Overtime. Chatting.You missed those simpler times but now you have a responsibility now.It is in your blood. It is in your name. You must continue...The Arkham's Legacy>Week 4 ended.> Chapter: House of Cards Ended
>>2713084>The Arkham's Legacy>Title drop.>Game begins.
>>2713084Alright. pulling in the rewards.> Heath increas:+2> Sanity Increase:+2>Improve trait [Criminal Empathy]>Improve Trait [The Art of Fear]>Improve Skill: Psychology> improve Skill: Conversation
>>2713088Do we get all of them or do we pick one?
>>2713089One only.Maybe in later chapter I can give you more of em if you did an epic job
>>2713092Do possessions count?>>2713088>> Sanity Increase:+2>>2710795Sanity broke. Best to avoid it happening for when we don't want it to.How low was our sanity when it broke? What was our lowest sanity?
>>2713088FUCK IM SO CONFLICTED>sanity increase
>>2713088>>Sanity Increase:+2Our Sanity keeps breaking like a shitty flip phone. We gotta buff that up.
>>2713094>Do possessions count?Meaning you getting possessed by the voices? Nah.>How low was our sanity when it broke? What was our lowest sanity?It was exceeding - 7 for sure and your lowest sanity was -7.So the range was 7/-7.
>>2713097>>2713095>>2713094Sanity it is!Now your sanity range is 9/-9.Just 1 more sanity and you have an improvement!
>>2713100>Meaning you getting possessed by the voices? Nah.>>2713092>>2711059Would we have done an epic job if we succeeded this without getting possessed?>>2713108Neat. Like a perk?
>>2713111Nice trips>Neat. Like a perk?Yep>Would we have done an epic job if we succeeded this without getting possessed?If you managed to subdue them without any death or staff/patient injuries, yeah.While posessions are great for problems, they lowered your 'grading'. How do I grade? Secret
>>2713113>If you managed to subdue them without any death or staff/patient injuries, yeah.Death of the enemies or staff/patient?
>>2713114Death of the enemies or staff/patient?ALL.OF.THEM.Post the gif. You know which one
>>2713113Could we ask the patients abou the attitude of Dr. Sinner? See if she has taken our advice seriously.
>>2713121You can.BUT wait! There's more!You can ask Old Joe for service feedback! I know HR is not Marketing but this is just the Employees grading
>>2713123Um, interesting.You kow, since we already have an expert of literary therapy at hand, the idea of making Scarecrow a terror writer just continues to grow in my head.Besies, it would minimize exposure to him, which would allow us to diminish the posibility of voice possesion.But we have to remember to give him recycled paper so that Poison Ivy doesn´t get pissed.
>>2713126You are too smart for your own good sometimes
>>2713113>While posessions are great for problems, they lowered your 'grading'. >>2713118>ALL.OF.THEM.I have a theory. And that theory is that we're being graded on how well we do our job, keep people alive and stay sane.
>>2713126>You kow, since we already have an expert of literary therapy at hand,Who?
>>2713130>>2713084>Arriving at the block, the blonde Dr. Sterlings greets you with his pearly white smile and it's not for you of course," Dr. Arkham, to what do we owe you the pleasure?" The blonde and vain Burt Sterlings. His diagnosis method is first word analysis and literature therapy.Oh. New character.
>>2713128My reasonings are as follows: Our job requires us to recuperate our patient's mental wellbeing, to not do this would be to go completely against what our duties are as a doctor.While we are working with dangerous criminals and the like, to have lives lost on among our employees or patients will show that we are a poor caretaker and that will reflect on the Asylum as a whole.And lastly our sanity, We are seen by a fairly large amount of people outside of a select few as a new bastion. To fall repeatedly into madness will make everyone lose their trust in us and restrict our influence and eventually give us the boot as the head of the Asylum.
Alright! It is archieved.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/2695655/Now i will rest for a few days before planning anymore quest. Gonna jobhunt too
>>2713126SupportIf he starts loving it and starts to behave good we might give him permission to write scripts for movies. Slowly giving him more responsibility en-till he directs it, writes it, and watches people reactions from a camera installed at the theater/s.
>>2713130Dr. Sterling, te guy we have met right now and has the hots for the nurse too bad we aren´t giving her up for the next weeks Anyway, question run:>Are gas masks included in normal Armory advancement or do they need to be resarched>Why is Old Joe so manly?>When do interns arrive?>Could we, as an action, a scavenge a basement or wherever old equipment and relics have accumlated? We need a cool typewriter after all.>Very long term but if we expand from the use of reycled paper, maybe we could install solar panels or some shit and market Arkham as keeping up with the times, to garner some rep, especialy among the eco-terrorists wanting to free Poison Ivy.
>>2713132This is reasonable.
>>2713132What about >>2713118? It apparently includes enemies as well.
>>2713142It makes sense. We are after all a doctor, not the Batman or the Terminator.
>>2713137>Very long term but if we expand from the use of reycled paper, maybe we could install solar panels or some shit and market Arkham as keeping up with the times, to garner some rep, especialy among the eco-terrorists wanting to free Poison Ivy.Your a genius anon! We just got to remember to watch the construction workers next time we have a constructions in progress.
>>2713137>Are gas masks included in normal Armory advancement or do they need to be resarchedResearched or bought (but expensive). Certain filters for specific airborn weapons needs to be researched.>Why is Old Joe so manly?Because he is.>When do interns arrive?Chapter 2 (next month In-Game)>Could we, as an action, a scavenge a basement or wherever old equipment and relics have accumlated? We need a cool typewriter after all.That is what taking a stroll do. Maybe i should change it to explore.>Very long term but if we expand from the use of reycled paper, maybe we could install solar panels or some shit and market Arkham as keeping up with the times, to garner some rep, especialy among the eco-terrorists wanting to free Poison Ivy.that's a very good expansion but expensive too. Wait... Ivy got fans too? I thought she usually mindfucked them into zombiesC;mon. throw in more questions! I can take em
>>2713151Well,I am done for nowHave a good day
>>2713151>C;mon. throw in more questions! I can take emWhat was Batman thinking when after the events of us channeling his personality on Quin and the thugs? And has he been keeping an eye on us since then?
>>2713157Oh, do you have any specific time when you are going to put up the new Chapter tomorrow? In hours from now on, so we don´t count different time zones
>>2713158>What was Batman thinking when after the events of us channeling his personality on Quin and the thugs?He was very surprised of your capability, especially when you're just an ordinary man. he knows you're insane but still rationalized that you can do better since you didnt kill anyone.>has he been keeping an eye on us since then?yep. he wsa also reading your profile almost 50 times now. After all, you didnt have any training to gain this kind of mentality.>>2713160Oh, do you have any specific time when you are going to put up the new Chapter tomorrow? In hours from now on, so we don´t count different time zonesAround 7 PM GMT+00orAround 2-3 AM GMT+00
>>2713167Since we are aware that we are insane. But it appears that when we take on a personality, we lose memories of the event, as if we switched from one operating system to another.Would it be possible to have someone that we trust to keep notes on the events as a part of researching into our own brand of madness?
>>2713170You can but the real question is: Who?Do you trust any one of them? They have their own agenda, ya know
>>2713172Now that is the real fun. Finding someone trustworthy that won't break in a windstorm.
>>2713170>>2710881>>2707942What happens if we try analyzing ourself or getting into our own mind? We get a voice which is a copy of our madness, or a simulacrum of ourself? Like a homunculus?>>2713172>>2707946>>2713173The best candidate would be our Uncle. Unfortunately he's already insane and a patient, so we'll have to hold off on that for now.
>>2713170You want someone to study you?That's how you get someone to study you. They would find out about our weaknesses of our different personality's.Lets just keep on upgrading our insanity, and hopefully one of those perks lets us ride shotgun while someone else takes over.
>>2713174>We get a voice which is a copy of our madness, or a simulacrum of ourself? Like a homunculus?So a Tulpa? Or a Split Personality?>What happens if we try analyzing ourself or getting into our own mind?Well the biggest problem so far is being busy and the memory loss, so we'd probably need a journal of sorts to help us keep track of what we've done.>>2713175We're all mad here, and we're not going anywhere. And heck, us capturing Quin is drawing more attention than us looking for a study into our own unique mental condition.
>>2713174>What happens if we try analyzing ourself or getting into our own mind? We get a voice which is a copy of our madness, or a simulacrum of ourself? Like a homunculus?Gotta find out yerself, boyo!
>>2713178>So a Tulpa? Or a Split Personality?A Tulpa would be an man-made imaginary friend, which could be the case depending on how we try doing it. A split personality sounds more likely and would match the other known Voices. Referring to my homunculus comment, it potentially could be the voice that keeps other voices in check, relatively speaking.>>2713179A dangerous game to play.
Forgot to post the quest's theme.You can (not) go insanehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIscL-Bjsq4
>>2709004Here you mentioned that the Extreme Isolation Chamber costed 10 funds, just checking, but this is different from the Special Containment cells that costed 3 funds, yes? What is the difference between them and why does the former costs so much?
>>2713827Special containment is just a room modified for meta people like Mr.Freeze, Croc, or people that needed modified environment to live.Extreme isolation however...They are cages to contain everyone. You know those dangling prisons in arkham game? That's the one. It is the safest cage you can offer. Remember that you got villains that easily escapes conventional prison. in here? they barely succeeed
>>2714086"Barely" being the key word.
>>2701099>>Maximum Security cell (for 10 villains)>>2714086Are these the same type of cells?
>>2714529>Are these the same type of cells?Yes, Special containment is just some mods installed in max cell for the meta people
>>2714086I realy want to save for one of these. Especialy taking into account what we did to the Joker´s liutenant.
>>2715525Started reading your quest. This is good shit, but you really need to pay attention to typos and wordings. It comes off as you being ESL
>>2713151>Wait... Ivy got fans too? I thought she usually mindfucked them into zombiesYou think she doesn't have guys out there who fap to pics/porn of her, just like real life? I mean, she's a lesbian and all, but she's still fucking hot come on.
>>2713180> it potentially could be the voice that keeps other voices in check, relatively speaking.So because we cannot manage the voices consciously for too long without possession, we need our own spirit voice self on the other side to help us manage our subconscious voices? Sounds like something straight out of Inception. I like it.Also it's basically us mimicking/absorbing/internalizing a sample of the madness of the person we're dealing with (negativity, not positivity), and gaining power from that at the cost of sanity and control of our own body. But if so, then why is our Scarecrow personality ridiculously helpful like the professor self? Is it because he's evil outside but good inside, and we internally replicated his good teacherly self because that's what he is deep down? Then the idea of us ONLY absorbing/replicating/whatever the fucking term is, is faulty. We do it to what is hidden or subdued, NOT what is negative? Hmmm
>>2719132I believe we don´t replicate the person itself, but an archetype of it we have formed insie our head.Look at Batman for example.We haven´t recreated the tragic figure of an orphan who has lost his parents, neither the tale of a hero putting his life on the line to defeat crime. We have created a persona based only on his analytical mind and powerful determination, where efficiency migh not be the means but the goal itself.
>>2718471The QM's second language is English so I wouldn't be surprised by further spelling mistakes. Its a fine trade-off for a good quest imo.
Yo you know what we SHOULD do?We should convert the inmates to our side and make a plan to capture Batman. and forcibly work through his psychology.Call our minions the Disciples of Arkham!
>>2720449Dosen't suit our MO.We want to help people get better, not harm someone (even if we do it accidentally)
>>2720449M8 that's stupid from every angle INCLUDING the villainous angle.
Tomorry, there might be a session around this time.>>2720449It can happen but it would be a bit difficult, especially with your dad's view on the criminally insane
