Brockton Bay, a city where the villains outnumber the heroes, gangs roam the street and the biggest concentration of Nazis in America.Which is why you came here, to either join the Empire 88 and support the cause with your race or to patrol the streets against the other gangs and perhaps even against the PTR heroes, all the while promoting your own version of the ideology.Regardless, to come here willingly where the likes of Lung and Hookwolf must mean you're a cape, so who are you and what is your power?>Write in name, Backstory optional.Choose a power.>Brute/changer 1-8, ability to absorb and incorporate non-Tinkertech mechanical devises, organic parts replaced can't be recovered.>Thinker JA ZUM GROSSEN WISSENSCHAFTMANN, no specialization Thinker who's tech starts of as prototypes that must be remade and refined into true masterpieces.

>>3203436Supportan, with some more to throw in if people want it.>Having been told stories by his grandfather of the brief shining glory of the Third Reich. Hermann had taken a different approach to the Nazi ideology: One of purging away the taint one has and to take themselves to greater and greater highets of what their mind and body can offer. Instead of hating the untermench like his grandfather had once did, there is only pity: for what is there not to pity about those who are predestined to be lesser than anyone else? Even if they were to struggle and improve, they will still be far lesser than even stray dogs.

>>3203514To anyone who doesn't mind having something to read for a few weeks to months, depending on how much and how fast you read, I highly recommend it, especially the pre-weaver parts.To Mechanicus, personally I'd recommend either having this be set a few years before canon or going with a completely different timeline as to avoid trying to mold this quest to Worm's rather complex storyline, which would most likely only take away from how enjoyable this story is going to be. That way you could also avoid including plot points that would be spoilers to yourself or others that want to read Worm at some point.>>3203510Yes PLEASE.

You decide to go look for junk and scrap, walking out of your apartment you get your car keys, phone and quickly check the date, which is February 1, and leave.Getting into you car you begin driving around in the direction of the Docks and the Boat graveyard, eventualy you find a small car junkyard and drive in, getting out you begin looking for the best trash you can find.2 hours in and some cellphones and busted car radios later you manage to find a miracle, a nearly undamaged car engine and a car battery a few feet away, you quickly collect this treasure and put it in your car trunk and resume collecting scrap, another 2 hours later you drive away without encountering anyone which is very fortuitous, and drive home richer for the day.>Gained 3boxes of electronics, 3boxes of scrap metal, 1 working engine and car battery.You are now home, after bringing in the boxes and grabbing a drink you contemplate what to do for the rest of the day.>wat do?>Go get a job.>Go for another dive in the junkyard.>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.>Go look for E88.>Write in.>>3203564It's for more than just searching.>>3203569roll under?
>>3203575No roll under thank you very much>Go for another dive in the junkyard.Bring as much scrap-metal as we can to Make Power Armor 1.0
>>3203575I'm gonna go ahead and change the mechanics cause i'm not pleased with the box thing.You guys got 25 scrap which includes the engine, battery and electronics. 25 scrap is also what you current car can hold and with 2 trips a day you guys can bring home 50 scrap, which is enough to begin building something simple.I'm gonna say you guys already have the tools to work with this junk and make something as another mercy.
>>3203575>Go look for E88.Faster we join with our fellow super aryians, the faster we get some added protection and better resources beyond personal dumpster dives.
>>3203575>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.Best we find our base of operations. I'd personally not wanna do roll under, because I'm sure that 20 is a sign.>>3203568Perfect! Now we just have to get shit done
>>3203580>Bring as much scrap-metal as we can to Make Power Armor 1.0i'm gonna say that'll cost 150 scrap. so it'll take 3 days to get that much junk.If anyone can tell me the name of a real life power exoskeleton built after WW2 i remember seeing a pic of that'd be much appreciated.
>>3203583We need to Prove we're not just talk to the E88So that's why i just want some Basic Power-Armor with Swastikas Painted on
>>3203583Fuck those weak ass bitches. Fucking larpers. Our 4 reich will be much better. With blackjack and hookers!
>>3203575>Go for another dive in the junkyard.
>>3203575>roll under?You set the DC and we try to roll under it.Easier the task higher the DC goes.
>>3203583You could also just stay independent and make the power armor, then some Tinker weapons and sell them to the E88, Kaiser doesn't have much options for Tinker tech since a lot of thinkers refuse to sell to him and those that do raise the price for him, having a tinker who sells him shit for reasonable prices is enough for him to not jump at you the minute he hears about you while also giving you the junk you need.>>3203586>Basic Power-ArmorBasic is a strong word, i prefer the word "Primitive" or "Isn't that the power loader from the movie aliens?"
>>3203575>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.I'd say we should get some experience and build a bit of a rep before joining E88 or starting our own gang.Also I don't know why people like roll under, I personally prefer roll over, but that's your choice.>>3203587>>3203589Weisser Jakob und Nutten!>>3203593Being a supplier to E88 sounds good, I like being independent.

>>3203612Fucking hell, you guys manage to find some of the best jobs.
BEHOLD THE WHITE KNIGHThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wikl6tJEPh0
>>3203612Can we get an update Mech?
You decide to spend the rest of the day job hunting, booting up the laptop you spend the rest of the day looking at sereval places and suprisingly manage to find a number of offers for work, which for the job starved city of Brockton bay is extremely lucky. After finding the job you want you schedule for a meeting tomorrow, turn off the laptop and prepare for bed.Which job do you choose. i'm not knowledgeable about paychecks so feel free to point holes at my shitty attempt at improvising.>PTR has one or two jobs open for clerks. paycheck will give you a steady income of 500 scrap a month with potential for raises.This is why i don't let you guys have the birthmark thing.>Mechanic spot open downtown. paycheck will give you a steady income of 500 scrap a month.>A job in an electronics store in the Boardwalk. paycheck will give you 350 scrap and potentially valuable electronics at a discount.>A Janitorial job at Winslow. 100 scrap a month.

>>3203636>>PTR has one or two jobs open for clerks. paycheck will give you a steady income of 500 scrap a month with potential for raises.Let's Pull a Coil Up in this BitchALL ACCORDING TO KEIKAKU
>>3203642The organization for heroes, only non-capes can work there to my knowledge.
>>3203647Pretty much. They don't allow capes in administrative positions to guard against bias toward any one cape.Imagine if Armsmaster was in Piggot's position. You know he'd have all Tinkertech everywhere sent to his lab and he would give himself all the high-profile missions while Dauntless gets the crumbs.
>>3203665And the Fucked up part is that Alexandria is the Head of the PRT and nobody knows it
>>3203666Technically, it's her body-double half the time.
Pretty clear we're going for the ballsy move, writing.This will make it so you guys have to do your stuff on the weekends, but at least you can pay rent, buy stuff and don't have to risk getting caught by the gangs dumpster diving.
>>3203668Well she tells the body double what to do so Still in charge
>>3203669Nobody would ever fucking expect the villain to work at "The Good Guys™" and i say that loosely because They are MASSIVELY Corrupt
Febuary 2Today you go out and drive to the PTR to meet with someone to discuss your resume, you park you car and walk into the PTR building where you're lead to a room to discuss your qualities and why you should be hired, there's a bit of trouble when it comes to the background check due to your grandfather but you make it clear by "clarifying" that he was an "adequate" grandfather even with his beliefs and that you personally, thanks to your parents, haven't picket up any "bad habits".Thankfully you're adequate enough against the opposition to get the job despite your grandfathers past, you drive home and have the rest of the day to do something before having to work a 9 to 5 job.>What do?>Go get Junk.>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.>Go look for E88.>Write in.Scrap:25Updates will be a weekly basis now, you will automatically shop for stuff after work which will give you 350 scrap per week.
>>3203675>Go look for a place to set up your workshop
>>3203675>>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.we can't go Looking for the E88 right now because they'll be looking for That Exact Shit
>>3203677Correct. They'll be keeping an eye on you for a month or 2 during and after work, your spending habits luckily go unnoticed due to you shopping smart and having a background as a mechanical hobbyist, were that spending to increase however they will notice.
>>3203675>Updates will be a weekly basis nowSo each update covers a week of content, while nothing's going on.>>3203677I would set up a secure workshop before even considering talking to the E88. We need to cover our bases before doing anything.
>>3203675>>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.building the first armor at home sound dangerous, better have another place if something goes on fire.
>>3203679>So each update covers a week of content, while nothing's going on.You work, shop, move stuff and plan during the weekdays, weekends are for cape activity, building tinkertech and to make it easier on my end. i might change it if i can come up with something better, maybe make it so you have 5 minor actions you can do in the weekday after work between work and shopping.
>>3203675>>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.I say sell our old apartment or rent it and buy some workshop with plumbing so we can live there.
>>3203684>maybe make it so you have 5 minor actionsDon't bother. If we will want to do something special we will give you call. For right now time between use as time skip.
>>3203675>Go look for a place to set up your workshop.Wasn't there for the vote, but honestly I think we shouldn't have taken the PRT job, simply because now they know we exist. Makes it much easier to make the connection between Villain and civilian than when we're just some rando. But whatever, we'll see how it works out.
>>3203685You can't sell or rent out your apartment, you don't own it.You could move out and buy another building, probably a proper house if you save enough money.
>>3203691If we're careful enough, we can actually DECREASE the connection due to the simple fact that no villain would work for the PRT. How do you think Coil got by? He was careful, and still is.
Workshop takes it, writing.
Also the first thing we should Build should be a power generator so someone dosnt find us because we Draw to much power
Where's a good place to find abandoned building in Brockton bay cause looking at the map i'm thinking the Docks for proximity and because it looks like a logical place to find a bunch of empty warehouses but it's in PRT territory and there's no logical explanation they wouldn't check when they find signs of activity.
>>3203694Yeah, but Coil never saw any action, and his power was perfect for that kind of set-up. What if we get in a scuffle and get injured, and a few days later the hero we fought walks in? We can't take time off every two weeks or so. If we're demasked and not recorded it normally wouldn't be a problem because we'd be 'literally who', but now we might get recognized. Again, not doomsaying, just saying that landing a job at PRT while being an undercover Villain doesn't make us Coil. We've gotta be careful.>>3203698+1, getting off the grid is a good ideaI-I swear I'm not paranoid!
>>3203700You could build a remove controlled robot instead of power armor for protecting your identity.
>>3203699The docks are PRT territory mainly because a lot of villain activity happens there, but if we keep to the more secluded sections and lay low, we should be fine. There's a lot of unused buildings there, the PRT can't patrol everything. We'd have to be more worried about other Villains, gangs or random bums stumbling upon it. The PRT has better things to do than search every crack-head's den. Highest priority should be getting a generator up and running like >>3203698 said.
You decide to look for a place to set up your tinkertech workshop, after looking at a map and some time driving around you find an abandoned warehouse in the docks and proceed to unpack your tools and prepare your workshop, after a few hours setting everything up the sun starts to set and you drive home ready to sleep.(cont)
>>3203703That'd be cool, but this>>3203510 power armor is too badass.It would be really cool though to have a robot that we can control from smth like a seat where we're fully immersed into the controls for most stuff, and only bust out the power armor for stuff that needs a more personal touch.Imagine the heroes being happy to finally have brought down the armored badass only find out it was a robot.And then the next week there's a new, improved one.
>>3203704I agree with you.I think our second action should be to build a server to store all of our information; our third action should be to build a manual mechanism to wipe everything if we should have any reason to abandon the base.
>>3203707Let's make some doombots.
>>3203707We Can just make the nazi power armor into a robot
>>3203708Well we're only getting started, I don't think we need a server yet - though personal communication lines are definitely a must.Well, let's start out with a generator and workshop, and then we can start working on the armor, part for part. I'd say start with a chestplate and gauntlets for protection and harder hitting, and a simple helmet just to keep our identity secret.>>3203711But what's the point of having power armor when you can't personally punch stuff with it?
>>3203707a robot for make weaker and learn how the enemy fights and then the power armour for finish them.>>3203711having a power armour is still a good thing, the last thing we need is be defenseless if in a fight the heroes destroy all of our robots and find us.a normal house in the countryside would cost a lot ?
>>3203706February 9 Week 1. I might scale this back cause you definitely wont have enough time to make everything and begin your rise to power before Taylor takes down lung.It's been a week since you got a job in the PTR, you were the talk of the office during the entire 5 days of work once it got out about your grandpa being a German WW2 vet, you luckily managed not to spill any spaghetti and handled the probing with tact which got you accepted by your co-workers. During that time you of course hear all about cape news, such as the gangs being gangs and how the heroes stopped another cape fight between them. Now that it's the weekend and you got some free time you wonder what to do.>Go get Junk.>Go build something in your workshop. If picked i'll start another vote.>Go look for E88.>Write in.
>>3203722>Go build something in your workshop. If picked i'll start another vote.
>>3203722>Go build something in your workshop.
>>3203722>>Go build something in your workshop. If picked i'll start another vote.
>>3203722Shit forgot to give you guys your scrap count.Scrap:375
>>3203722>Go build something in your workshop.I want to build a cheap weapon before we sink time into power armour. We should have some rudimentary defences.>>3203712I want to plan ahead, but I guess you're right. We should still build the server and failsafe later though.
Yea i'm definitely scaling back the date, now that i think about it i want to give you guys the fun stuff.
Well building stuff is obviously unanimous, calling this early.
>>3203722>Go build something in your workshop
Here's a list of stuff you could build.>Power armor V1 cost:1000 scrap.>Robot V1 cost :1000 scrap.>Small Railgun/Coilgun V1 cost: 300 scrap>Power fist V1 cost: 300 scrap>Write in.
>>3203742>Robot V1 cost :1000 scrap.Rise! My new servant!
>>3203746I can believe i forgot that.300 scrap since you have a car engine and battery. One time only deal.
>>3203748You uh... can't build that yet anon. Insufficient Scrap. >>3203729
>>3203742>Generator V1it would probably be 200 scrap or so
>>3203742>Power Generator V1 Even if it is just one, it will be good
>>3203753Nah 300 since it's the same size that the railgun prototype.I should make the powerfist prototype cheaper since it can't be as big shouldn't i.
>>3203742GeneratorStart the transition to support our new workshop, we don't have a theme right?
>>3203756If you're talking about what you're tinkertech looks like no, it does not have a theme unless specified. Even if specified the first versions will look like something an Ork Mec built.
>>3203757Cool, but I kinda meant what are our limits with our tech
>>3203757Keep in mind that any usable tech will be the product of multiple passes.Therefore, the actual cost for a V3 generator (which I assume to be on par woth stamdard Tinker bullshit) will likely be something like 500-600 scrap.
If we ever need a cape costume, might I suggest this
>>3203771>blatantly advertising our Nazism>before or without joining the Empire
Hey mech Can we Build somethong that makes weapons for us
>>3203773May not all the Swastikas but it's still a cool costume
>>3203765Costs may increase or even decrease depending on how you upgrade the tech, it depends. I'll probably have it so any miniaturization upgrade you make also decreases the cost, at the risk that at some point it starts losing so advantages due to size constraints. The opposite is true so if you keep upgrading without messing with the size you'll only gain, making it bigger will give a big bonus to what it's supposed to do.Basically, if you want to power a robot, you make the generator and keep shrinking it down, if you want to power a block you bump up the size.
>>3203775Of course. It'll be hideously expensive depending on what but this i almost will only decrease in cost as you improve it.
>>3203764Anything your shard will have trouble with, things like perpetual motion machines and other extreme stuff like that. Just propose an idea and i'll tell you if it's too much even for a shard. Your shard will encourage you to try and build such things anyways since that's it's entire purpose.
>>3203782*this i almost guarantee will only decrease.Fuck me.
Sorry, was a bit busy.You decide to build some tinkertech today and drive to your workshop, after arriving you draw up some plans and begin to build.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OC0V-0a7Gj0>Gained Medium sized Gasoline/Diesel Generator.>Scrap remaining: 75After a few hours you have built your first ever tinkertech devise. It looks like complete shit, is very loud, shakes constantly even when not on and you think it may explode but you already have ideas on how to upgrade it, which may involve taking it apart and building it all over again.>Upgrade tech.>Build something else.Or you could call it a day and do something else until the end of the day.>Go get Junk.>Go look for E88.>Write in.
>>3203795Yes. You'll have to build something like a gene editor or clone tube first before making astarties however.
>>3203799>>Go get Junk.junk time
If we need to mask our identity, why not invent a high tech synthetic lifelike mask to wear when doing our villain shit.Nobody will expect a mask BEHIND our power armour.
>>3203799Let's upgrade the generator before it fucking burns our house down.
>>3203807>>3203813Supporting both of these. Maybe we can make a 3D printer later?
Fucking hell, i have bad news.I have, throughout this entire thread yet to come up with a good way for how to write other characters and how they would interact with you, i'm sitting here thinking up hypothetical scenarios and drawing an absolute blank canvas for what they would say to you.I think i'm going to either have to have someone run this quest with me or just put it up for adoption.I'm gonna continue until we get to a conversation with someone then we'll see.
>>32038163D printer is definitely a thing you can build, You can even upgrade it into a metal using 3D printer.
>>3203818>Heroes hate us>ABB hate^2 us>Kaiser would really want us on his side, and would value us very highly>Hookwolf wouldn't be interested because we're not a brute>Famine hates us (why even live bros)>Night and Fog feel no particular emotions about us>Purity is neutral toward us; if we fuck with her daughter she hates^999999 us>Coil will see us as a threat since we won't be the type he can buy, so he'll want to pull a Dinah on us
Still need a vote to break the tie.
>>3203828You underestimate my autism. I have a slight headache right now from thinking too hard and all i have got is "hey".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd2Q6Fagemg
Tie is still not broken and it looks like most anons have left, so i'm gonna end it here for today and we'll see if i can continue the quest tomorrow.I wonder if i can waste the entire day thinking and not have come up with a conversation.
>>3203814supporting this, if you're really stuck OP I might try continuing your idea since I've got the weekend offDon't expect anything top tier like He Who Meddles or Void though
>>3203832My name is Hermann Schmidt. I'm 20 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Brockton Bay, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the PRT, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone. This is basically Hermann.
>>3203816i don t think we can do both. and we don t have a lot of scrap. The idea of the mask is good and we should use it with power armor on.
>>3203832I imagine we'd have like, multiple personas we adapt.Like we'd have a normalfag mode, SCIENCE mode and possibly a ruthless unfeeling combat mode we switch between as needed.
>>3203799Get more junk
>>3203838For you see, my Thinker shard [Erika] can make anything i touch into German science (The finest science in za world).
>>3203855tinker without an h
>>3203859I fucked up TWO things! The Dio meme and misspelling Tinker.BRB gonna commit sudoku.
Anyway, just got done eating and Junk one, but i think i'm gonna put this quest up for adoption, still haven't come up with anything.
>>3203871Aw shit, two Worm quests adopted.Is someone going to adopt All Of Me nexf?
>>3203882>Aw shit, two Worm quests adopted.At this point with this track record anons are going to start posting HQQ memes in Worm quests.
>>3203871Why not wait till tomorrow and see what you can come up with? Read up on some characters and get to know their personalities. Then if you can't come up with something the quest can get adopted.>>3203891Expand HQQ, please, for my brain is on vacation right now
>>3203909I already read up on some of the characters, you'd think for someone armsmaster would be one of the easier characters to write, but i still have trouble thinking up how a conversation between Hermann and him would go, i legit get stuck on "Armsmaster gets off his bike" and can't figure out how it would natural flow from there.
>>3203921>Armsmaster gets off his bike>you awkwardly stare at him>he stares back>seconds pass>It's been half a minute now>you decide to try and talk with him>"H-hey!">oh, he left already
>>3203928See, that's already way better that what i could come up with and it's a shitpost.
>>3203930nigga you're fucking your own asshole. by assuming your own incompetence you are sabotaging yourself. you can do it. believe in the me that believes in you.
>>3203921>Armsmaster gets off his bike>"Doktor, you are wanted for--" 《lists all of our known crimes so far》>witty banter from our end>"Don't make this hard on yourself. Surrender and come in peacefully, and we'll respect your right to privacy. Say, you seem like a pretty good Tinker, so--" 《sales pitch that Autismaster fucks up》>We move in to fight him>outofthedoorwaythebulletsrip.png>"I've been working on 《counter to our bullshit》 for some time, you know.

Bike, return. Note to self, Doktor was using robots the whole time. To do: redo model accounting for new information."
>>3203936Thanks for the encouragement but i think i made up my mind. I'm too lazy to run a quest all the way to the end anyways.At least i tried and learned my flaws, that i should prepare the quest mechanics before starting and that character conversations are my Achilles heel.
>>3203950Dammit, >>3203837 take over
>>3203837You’re up Sorcerer.
Ok this is bullshit.I managed to come up with a conversation in my head and its between Hermann and and nonexistent son/younger brother which we augmented for some reason and the son/brother complains about it to us in that usual teen bitch way.The actual fuck is wrong with my brain?
>>3203837I'm also down for running. I'll basically have the same starting base as mech tho. hell, this thread helped alivitate some fears I had about running
>>3203970>I managed to come up with a conversation in my head and its between Hermann and and nonexistent son/younger brother which we augmented for some reason and the son/brother complains about it to us in that usual teen bitch way.This sounds amazing. It could very well be our trigger: a billion and one things are going wrong. Our family is breaking apart after gramps died, we're going through financial trouble, the political situation is looking bad.And out of nowhere our little brother gets fucking maimed in an accident. And that pushes Hermann over the edge, and he triggers. Using his power he makes some shitty implants to save Hans, who dies not long afterward because shitty tech is shitty.
>>3203984>This sounds amazing. It could very well be our trigger: a billion and one things are going wrong. Our family is breaking apart after gramps died, we're going through financial trouble, the political situation is looking bad.It was after the trigger event, we just decide to give our younger sibling a brain chip for some crazy reason. Nothing dramatic just shitposting in my head.
>>3203988Sounds pretty neat
Dunno what's going on yet in this thread, but have you guys considered an alliance with the ABB and maybe an Italian gang? We could be the Axis Powers 2: electric boogaloo.
>>3204028ABB hate white people almost more than the E88 hate asians
>>3204056Now that i think about it does some character from the E88 EVER mention the jews?
>>3204072i readed worm some years ago so my memory isn't very fresh but the only time i remember something related to jews and the E88 appeared was when theo choose the name golem as his hero name
If people are willing to wait for me toA. Plan some stuff ahead, I've got an vague idea on the trigger event, but I need to clear through some other potential concepts and ideas to see what would/not workB.Start tomorrowThen I'm willing to give it a shot, mind you I'm a pretty amateur writer.
>>3204086I'll still hang around to help with the quest if you want it.
>>3204089Thanks man, I'm about to go to sleep so feel free to post any ideas or concepts you have and I'll read them tomorrow
>>3204086>Plan some stuff ahead, I've got an vague idea on the trigger event, but I need to clear through some other potential concepts and ideas to see what would/not workIf it helps, the original idea for the Tinker power trigger even was that you would have been a college graduate who attempted to get some money and renown as a scientist by experimenting and inventing stuff but failed repeatedly due to his beliefs and not being very good until it got to a point for a trigger event. With how Bakuda triggered from a bad grade it seems acceptable.
Let’s put on a mask and go outside to preach proper Nazism, not Neo-Nazi bullcrap.Then Politic :P
>>3203771>>3203776If we ever needed a base unarmored cape costume, I think either of this would be the one.I've skimmed through the thread a bit. Can someone tell me what's going on? Hermann quest lost traction?
>>3204191I can't think up character interactions worth a damn. And without talking to other people this is just a engineer simulator quest.
>>3204198you cant think up character interactions between Hermann and existing character from teh Worm universe, or Hermann with original characters you're gonna introduce to the setting?
>>3204204Former, haven't come up with any OCs yet.
Here’s hoping we don’t get robot, I hate those.I’d much prefer have power amored subordinate.
>>3204096From my rendition, I was thinking of having our shard be leet's shard; since it canonically wants leet to die so it transfers to someone new. As is, we can be seen as a reverse of leet's dynamic: he made shitty things once and we make shitty things better through multiple iterations.
>>3204222Drones are ok as long as they are not an AI waifu, also even if we could get some robots minions they usually aren't worth the effort unless we are a paranoid megalomaniac or have 0 chances of getting human minions, with the materials it would take to make 1 humanoid robot i am sure we could outfit 3-5 of our minions with power armor or some tinker devices
>>3204292I'd prefer it if our shard was something new and separate from known shards like Leet. I don't like the idea of just writing out a canon character cause their power is very similar to ours.
>>3204309>AI Waifu>Inb4 we Cuck armsmaster
our shard is an abbadon shard
also we are trying to become a tinkertech supplier of the empire and not a part of it right?
>>3204309It depends on both the power armor and robot designs, power armor you make can have some variations ranging from light exoskeleton to Fallout power armor to something barely away from counting as a mecha. Robots have far more variety, you can have exploding roombas, quadcopter drones, spider robots, terminators, ED-209s, warhammer dreadnaughts even vehicular robots which are just AI/remote piloted tanks or aircraft.So if you compare terminators and Fallout style power armor they should be about the same in cost, but light exoskeletons vs terminators are obviously gonna have the power armor be cheaper and vice versa.
>>3204292leet's shard lets him build ANYTHING that is tinker tech and they where very good things the problem comes from the fact that you can't generally make a tinker devices from exclusively one field, if he uses a schematic for say a power storage he can´t reuse said schematic like the first time EVER and anytime he tries to use the same schematic he risk an exponentially higher chance for it to missfire/break or blow in his face, due to the nature of his power when he first got it he just made whatever he liked and such reckless tinkering severely crippled all his future projects
>>3204336so how cheap would a b1 droid be?
>>3204332I think the general consensus was that we would make our own Freikorps because E88 suck?We’d probably need some actual legitimate business to fund our thing though.
>>3204336Oh fuck, the GM is a robot lover, I am outta here :/There is nothing in this world I despise as much as robot.
>>3204350Look at this man. Look at him and laugh.
>>3204342Pretty cheap, same as a light exoskeleton, however the B1 will be shit at fighting unless spammed so using exoskeletons would be better overall. Or you could upgrade the AI's intelligence at no cost so the B1 will use things like stealth and tactics which takes time to train a human for.>>3204350The hell?
>>3204359I am sorry, but robot make a story uselessly stale, it basically take away as much human interaction as is possible.
>>3204345What about trying to take over the grocerys and the city's food distributors, they'll never suspect the tinker who always uses heavy-duty power armor and multitude of gadgets to run the food stores, little they know that we divert part of the products to create create and devlop our underground army aryan Übermensch's
>>3204359It’s exacerbated by the fact that the premise give the Character an ideology, how does that even work? You give him and ideology than let him build stuff that will basically make any human interaction pointless and unnecessary as far as efficiency goes,what’s the point then, to have an ideology but not force interaction with others? Might as well just make him a rando.
>>3204391You're talking about how given the chance players will just build robots to do stuff for them while ignoring interactions with people right? I get your worries but i've seen a non-worm cape quest where the protagonist was a robot building villain before and anons willingly interacted with characters then so i think it'll be fine here.
>>3204398Is it lost stars quest?
>>3204405No it was steel something i think.
>>3204420Damm, though do say what it is called If you remeber it. There Isnt enough villain quests
>>3204398No it won’t, I can assure you, but it’s your quest and your decision. Why always Robot anyways for fuck’s sake? Is it much to ask that we use Humans to build an Organization for once? Just no robot...*sigh*
>>3204426Mate i definitely get your frustration, i really do, a while back i had a desire for a good villain quest and when someone started a MHA quickless quest i pushed for villain route hard despite anons want to go typical hero route, villain won but eventually the protagonist evolved into goody two shoes like usual.However i like giving people freedom on what to build so i'm gonna have to keep robots in, sorry i couldn't help give you the quest you want anon.
>>3204368>>3204391>>3204426Go away smelly ESL.

Week 1 Day 1PROLOGUE'Owner Of A Lonely Heart'You awake from a dreamless sleep, your eyes hitting the run down ceiling. Getting up, you walk around the house absentmindedly trying to decide what the hell you're going to do today. Deciding to go without breakfast, you check the junk you've made that's stored inside your house. Most of it's unusable, although something's telling you could improve >A ray-gun that doesn't fire 3/4 of the time (Tier 1-Low)>A unfinished prototype for some-kind of exoskeleton (Tier-? ?)>A metallic mask, this does actually work, although something telling you could expand upon on it greatly (Tier 1-High)>Tiers go up to 1-4, 1 being basically extremely basic or unusable and 4 being top grade tinker gear, furthermore in every tier there's low, mid and high. If for example you improved a item that's tier 1-high, it would become a tier 2-low. Crits and critsfails can also influence these, but I'll expand on that later.There's also several long term problems that need to be addressed, money of course is a big issue. You currently have enough to keep the rent up for about a couple of weeks, but you need income. Additionally, you're going to need a base of operations to store equipment and materials, you've already gotten a few weird looks from the neighbors from bringing scrap inside your home, and if you do decide to take this cape thing seriously you need to make sure your civilian life is not compromised.

>>3205836After lounging around the house, you decide to clear your mind by watching the news. Turning it on, you sit down on a old worn out chair. "Good morning everyone, this channel four news". "Last night a group of Villains robbed The Brockton Bay Central Bank, luckily we have Dick on the scene, what exactly happened there?" A surprisingly young man beings speaking in-front of the bank in question "To put in simple terms Robb, we don't know. I've heard from several witness that the group of villains took everyone hostage, but luckily none of the civilians were killed or injured. The PRT has yet to comment on the exact details here Robb, but they're refusing to let anyone in after 'collateral' damage. It seems like to me, personally, one of the ''heroes'' that responded screwed up, and they're afraid to admit it"."Thank you Dick, in other news..." The newscaster beings to drone on about topics you couldn't care less about. Getting up, you begin to get dressed in semi Formal attire. You're pretty sure there's a job's noticeboard somewhere nearby, you've gotta start somewhere...>Roll me some d20s, best out of three, crits override

After walking through your local shitho-street you finally find what you're looking for, the noticeboard. Glancing through, nothing stands out at first, but after careful inspection you find the perfect job'Guard/Manager needed for the local scrapyard, you're expected to clean and guard the place, one man job, the only requirements are to be able work through the night shift. More details at this address...- Richard'Smirking devilishly, you begin walking towards the address specified with a wide smile, it seems your ancestors have blessed you today, and you won't let it go to waste.Standing outside the scrapyard, you're hit with a realization that this is the place you've STOLEN from for materials. Luckily, you were never caught due to your glorious genetics, but... fate works in mysterious ways.1/2
>>3206039Heading towards what at a glance, looks like some of shack guarding the main entrance, you knock on the makeshift door. After a few moments the door opens and you're met with a saggy middle aged man. "What the fuck do you want sunny' boy?"Barely being able to suppress your desire to laugh your ass off, you begin placating the man."I'm here for the job you posted on the noticeboard,sir'"Why the fuck' should I give you job, boy!?'"Because I'm a hardworking American in the need of a job, sir" You almost choke on a word while putting on this display, but it can't be helped."Good! get your ass in here and I'll tell you the what's and when's!"Moving inside, the man gestures for you to take a seat opposite to him. "Now listen sunny' boy, me and the wife are about to go on vacation tomorrow, and we need someone to make sure no one ransacks this place while I'm gone. Recently those fucking good for nothing hobo merchants have started coming here in nighttime, this is where you come in. Every Sunday a good friend of mine will come check this place at 5PM and if he finds no problems, you'll receive a good 500 bucks, not bad right?"Nodding, the man continues"Your basic duties are to kick the living shit out of ANYONE that trespasses in here, of course you need to make sure this place is clean and safe, but this shouldn't be a problem. Any questions?">Well?
>>3206069>What's your friend's name? I wouldn't want to let the wrong person in.

>>3206069>What's your friend's name? I wouldn't want to let the wrong person in.For once, the man becomes unusually silent for a few moments. "The guy's name is Lioc, weird name, if I remember correctly he's half European or something, but I never payed it any interest.">Any deliveries or something like that?"No, I've already made sure that we tripled our usual deliveries last month to make up for my soon to be absence.">People that ass I shouldn't kick?"Just the guy I've mentioned, if that's it kid you start tomorrow." Taking out set of keys from a locker, he passively hands them to you. "I should only be away for... three months, kiddo'. Make sure to lock the gate after you've finished looking after this place for the day. If you need any extra equipment to fill in a gap in the fence or something similar, ask Lioc." After giving the man a handshake, you begin walking back home a bit dazed, you didn't expect this any of this go as well as it did.1/?
>>3206154>lioc is a filipino name>but lioc is half european
>>3206154Eventually returning home, you realize that it's still early in the afternoon. Thinking about the situation clearly, you've come to grasp that you've solved two potential problems. Assuming you can hide your... tinker habits from this 'Lioc' person, you can effectively make all the tinker gear you want alone with an absurd amount of materials right next to you, it's basically the base of operations you were asking for!

>>3206367yeah, you're going to need to build an generator at some point, it's up to you when though>>3206369NoI'm not that cruel
>>3206417Did we get the boss man's phone number? If we're guarding the place during the day, who's guarding it at night? The pay is 500 a day starting tomorrow? Were there any tools at the junkyard?
>>3206369Double critting? I've never seen that done before? Crit overrides on d20 suck by the way.
>>3207414What about Crit Confirms?Ie someone rolls 20, take second highest roll to confirm critRoll 1 take second lowest roll to confirm crit fail
>>3205776Yep, that's the one.
>>3206225I like how you decided to interpret the Shit-to-Great drawback i made cause my original plan was to have everything you mane be akin to the first invention of it's kind, for example a tinkertech computer would have been refrigerator sized with vacuum tubes and those old tape wheels, then you would have chosen some upgrades that mimicked other Tinkers specialization until you had either a regular sized supercomputer or a fridge sized supercomputer with the latter being way better than the former.
>>3208470Forgot the rest of my post .If anons built that Raigun when i was running the quest they would have gotten something as big as a couch that might fail to fire half of the time but could punch through a modern tank or two. Having them have Shit-at-First Tinkertech they can actually hold with their hands is much fore fun.
>>3207482I guess I'd be okay with that, but I'd rather crit a bit more often than that, like on d100. D20 with crit confirms gives you a 1/400 chance to crit, compared to 1/100 on d100.
>>3208497>>3208470I'm glad that I managed to get it right, although something tells me we're going to be seeing some actual TINKERING next session>>3206949Maybe I didn't really put it in proper words, but your'job' is basically to make sure the place doesn't get invested with filthy, dirty merchants along side making sure the whole place doesn't fall into disrepair.
>>3209002By the way how are you gonna handle Tinkertech upgrades? Just have it be a "Upgrade to Tier X-whatever" and that'll make it better or will the be more details?
>>3209095There'll be more details depending on what exactly you want it to better atFor example if you wanted to make ray gun to fire most of the time, and succeeded, it would probably move onto tier 2, mid.Or if you wanted your metallic mask to have some gimmick like night-vision it would move onto tier 2-high It honestly just depends on what exactly you're upgrading and how well you roll
>>3209133Cool, i was gonna go for something like this.>Motorbike 1.0-Engine.>Miniaturize Tier 1.(Conflicts with Maximize)>Maximize Tier 1.(Conflicts with Maximize)>Modularize.>Expand fuel type Tier 1(alcohol)>Improve power output per Gallon Tier 1.>Write in.-Suspension.>Miniaturize Tier 1.(Conflicts with Maximize)>Maximize Tier 1.(Conflicts with Maximize)>Modularize.>Write in.-Misc>Add armor to hull Tier 1.>Reinforce inner frame Tier 1.>Write in.And then when they get to a point they're maxed out or satisfied they can essentially make a Standard Template Construct for it so they don't have to go through the processes all over again if it get's trashed, at the cost that they probably can't remove or change any of the upgrades so if they want a slightly different Motorbike STC they have to start from square one for it.
>>3209160Nice, I'm not that familiar with cars or motorbikes but this seems more or less usable. If anons ever decide to want something like this I'll use it. Anyway I'll start running in about two hours
>>3209182Where do you live? It's 3 am here.
Btw i completely forgot to mention this entire time, had anons picked the other powerset and then second triggered they would have unlocked the ability to absorb and copy Tinkertech and unlock a potential path towards becoming a mecha endbringer that can shit out robotic horrors.
>>3209222Yeah, except you said in the Wendigo thread that we wouldn't be able to eat Tinkertech.
>>3209208Brit Bong>>3209222Eh, we're already ridiculously overpowered, cool concept though if ever go full VOIDTHE SIMURGH IS NOT PLEASED
>>3209225Never mind, I'm stupid
>>3209225Only if you never second trigger, if you don't your stuck having to work, modify and combine regular mechanical machinery, Second trigerring with that power set is essentially you power going "FUCK LIMITS!"
>>3209232Seriously, you could even go a little beyond Endbringer, which would have been your second roadblock. I got inspired to make that power set by WW2 tanks, transformers and this http://www.scp-wiki.net/twistedgears-kaktus-proposal, specifically the "Eats a human and spawns a robot" and "Eats a part of mexico" bits.

Ignoring your outright embarrassing display yesterday, things are looking good. You're sure your grandfather is proud. You're still left with a tingeing sense of uncertainly ahead, doing this whole cape thing alone is usually a bad idea from what you've heard on PHO, and there's still a dozen factors about your identity from here forward, you haven't even decided on name yet.Hermann Schmidt Faction Relations: (0) Still unknown to anyoneHealth: (95) More or less healthy What now?>Come up with some costume ideas>Turn on the news>Decide on a Cape name>Start 'working' in the scrapyard>write in

>>3209254Here's my suggestion.
>>3209264Ah i see you too are a Pyre fan
>>3209268In a more serious tone, another name i suggest is something with Doctor in it or just The DOKTOR.Or perhaps The Factory as a later name.
>>3209273What do you guys think about Bastler for our name
>>3209254What about Feldmarschall?
as a joke name we can be called trashman or garbageman and we could be called junker
Omnissiah or tech priest?
>>3209277I like the wunderwaffe idea actually
>>3209278We should probaly build some kind of harness with doc ock arms to help us tinker
>>3209276That could be good if we want to be both fast with building and trow people off but we'd have to deal with the risk of Tinkertech failure constantly.
What do you guys think about giving the middle finger to armsmaster and call ourselves Rüstung
>>3209284Hell, we could call ourselves Eitri, after the dwarf who made Mjolnir.
Figuring that listening to the news could help you clear you mind, you lazily turn on it and are greeted with the same middle aged man from yesterday. "Good Morning, this is your host Robb Brown on Channel 4 News. This morning, the police have confirmed the disappearance of Dinah Alcott, pictured here, she's a young child with straight, dark brown hair. If you have seen her anywhere in the last 24 hours, or have any indication about her whereabouts, we ask that you contact the police immediately. In other news, the infamous villain Bakuda has been..."Ignoring the emotionless rambling of this generic news presenter, you begin thinking about what exactly you should call yourself.A few ideas come to mind, you can always call yourself something German like Wunderwaffer, or perhaps something with 'doctor' in the name? After thinking seriously about this you decide to call yourself...>Ingenieur>Wunderwaffer>Student or Schüler>Doktor>junker>Rüstung>Write in

What was the name of that one boss from a cartoonish army game? Strum?
>>3209311Nevermind, managed to find it.The Character would make a pretty good cape costume.
>>3209316So are we gonna go for something like this for our Weapon of Choice then?
>>3209333Well we're probably gonna piss of the E88 if we don't join.
>>3209333https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mvsS18zt2UAfter deep consideration you opt for Eitri, from what you remember about those old comics you grandfather had he was a dwarf king who built some mythical hammer. Regardless, it fit for a tinker's cape name, and it wasn't so bad that you would get laughed at for uttering. Finishing your breakfast, you decide it's about time to start 'work'. gathering a couple of none-seen through plastic bags, you throw in some of the usable junk you've made inside, there was no use keeping them here when you had a perfect place to store them.Following the same route you used yesterday, you arrive at the entrance. Taking out keys, you open the shack's door first. Turning on the light, you take a quick gander around the place. Nothing drastic stands out, although you find a note stuck on what you could barely call a deskGood luck - RichardSmirking devilishly, you gently place the bags you carried onto the floor and begin to think about your first plan of action. Should you start exploring the place to get a good grasp of the area? Or should you start immediately letting that tinker 'itch' come out?>Explore the area>Try upgrading something with whatever you can find nearby (Which item?)>Build something (What?)>Write in

>>3209386Fate? Surely you mean GERMAN SCIENCE! ZE GREATEST IN ZA WARUDO! IT CAN DO ANYSING, YOU SEE! EVEN ALTAH FATE!
>>3209383Deciding that checking out the area would be the wiser choice, you leave the shack and head towards the chained up Fence gate. It takes a few aggravating minutes to figure out where each key goes where, but you finally manage to open the damn thing.Good god! The man wasn't lying when he said they tripled their deliveries, the place is practically filled to the brim with cars that are damaged beyond repair. After walking around aimlessly for a few minutes, you almost being drooling about the possibilities.You could practically build a damn robot here if only the neighbors didn't notice.After walking for what felt like hours, you satisfy your curiosity. Somehow, there's no fence hole's anywhere you've seen, which is practically a miracle. After arranging a few keen estimates in mind from what you've saw, you come up with(3000 Low Level Material)(500 Mid Level Material)(15 High Level Material)1/2
>>3209396Walking back to the gate, you begin to see something unusual. At first, you think see some off looking car part among a pile of scrap, but after shifting a few things, you see a... manhole?Stamping your foot on it, you can tell it's tightly sealed. It doesn't look old, in fact it looks rather new for manhole standards, why would a scrapyard have this here?> Manhole ??? discovered Shrugging it off, your mind beings to wander on what exactly you should start building.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGTI5usTbjgWhatever you do, your mind keeps going back to that manhole. Currently, you lack any proper tools to open the damn thing but...You immediately think of a wielder, not only would this make your current problem's child play, but it would be essential in your tinkering escapades. Turning to face the endless piles of scrapped cars, you let out a wide grin, IT'S TIME!>Rolled 17 (DC was 16)After a few hours creating and recreating, you're left with all the fruits of your handwork. Letting out boisterous, over-dramatic laugh you begin to inspect your newly created toy>Temporary Wielder gained! (Tier 2, low)with a sheepish grin you begin walking over to the manhole...1/?
I am considering the actions you guys chosen by trying to open the manhole. God knows what kind of trouble we've preemptively stumbled upon.

>>3209488Ah, so Coil then?It's just Lioc backwards.
>>3209472With the welder in hand, you begin the process of slowly taking off the manhole. It's a surprisingly lengthy job since you're trying to avoid permanently scaring your eyes, but after a good half an hour you finally manage it. Carefully you succeed in taking it off.Looking inside, you see ladders descending into a dark abyss. Testing the waters by throwing a random piece of scrap inside, it take about 10 seconds before you hear a faint impact. Dropping the welder nearby, you begin to descend, regardless of the circumstances.After a minute or two, your feet finally feel a floor. Taking your hands off the ladders, you take out your grandfather's old lighter and turn it on.2/3
I just took a shower and seeing as Leviathan is hitting soon i decided to be rude and ask this early, would anons prefer Akire's upgrade mechanic or mine? >>3209133>>3209160>>3209182

>>3209509https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWa1j9VHRrc&index=19&list=PL0C21BDB2AD060B72After a few minutes of searching the wall for anything, you finally find what looks like a switch. After slamming it down your eyes are hit with intense light. After a minute adjusting your eyes you begin looking around... finding nothing. You're met with a completely empty 'room'. There's a huge amount of space here, and it's not being used at all. The floors are practically clean, and the walls themselves don't look older than an year. Wandering around, you left thinking who hell would build this? Why? Confused, you're left wondering if could re-purpose this forgotten place to store all you're tinkergear, hell, you could turn this place into your own laboratory if you wanted.

Regardless if it's the CIA or some secret super villain's extra hideout, opening this up was a mistake. Slamming the switch upwards, you begin running towards the faint light. Grasping up the ladders with renew vigor, it takes you only a minute to reach the surface.

>>3209730No, unless you somehow manage to make your own little world inside your pocket (which is possible I guess)
>>3209693https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_fc_AZmaKsAfter mulling over your options, you decide that slacking off the first day wouldn't be a wise decision. You begin making rounds around the endless rows of unusable rows of cars. You begin reflecting on the day, you started making your own tools, you discovered... something. While it may not seem mind-blowing at first, this whole cape thing gets more and more bizarre. After a couple of hours patrolling, you decide that enough is enough. Placing the welder inside the shack alongside your other tinker gear, you begin locking everything up. Finally you start the walk back home.Eventually returning home, you realize that you're fucking starving. Searching through the cupboards, you decide to make some simple sausage sandwiches due to your lack of cooking skill. Finishing your meal, you immediately decide that sleep is one thing you need. Entering your blankets, you begin to dream about two big 'worm' creatures. Day 2, End>Session end

>>3209928Real OG QMs write with zero plans whatsoeverBut in all seriousness, it heavily depends on who you piss off and if you kill anyone.The merchants are going to be somewhat of a threat since you border them and you better hope you damnedest you don't piss off the PRT too soon.For the E88, it heavily depends on which ideology you chose and if you go full naziI can't really say much how about how we'd look gear wise midgame considering we can literally make any tinker gear ignoring shit the entities blocked like space/time travel
>>3209946>But in all seriousness, it heavily depends on who you piss off and if you kill anyone.I mean more like if everyone ignored us like we're invisible or if the whole world was barren of humans but you answered my curiosity.I was thinking midgame/endgame would be anons turning this quest into a Civ quest, cause it's obvious as soon as anons invent something good they're gonna think "Now how do i get MORE?">ignoring shit the entities blocked like space/time travelWait what?

We should build a Mecha to fight a Endbringer. Glorious German Steel, Moving Three Times Faster Than The Average Villain.
>>3210106I mean, for oneBuilding a giant fucking mecha will paint a massive target on your back, even if you side with one the factionsI'm not against making robots per say, but if you DO try to do something like you've mentioned prepare for the hurtI won't lie though, it would be pretty cool. What mecha designs did you have in mind?

>Levi shows up >Everyone panicking >Then suddenly Mobile Suits>Seig_Zeon.Zabi
>>3210224...Well now i want to make a Gunman to fight the endbringers
Gundam suits would be a hard thing to build actually (they are 60 fucking feet tall, double the height of Leviathan)What about something smaller like a Knightmare Frame first?
>>3210262I was thinking something more code geass if we ever go down that route, so yeah
so are we going to accept the geneva conventions ? because phosphor blaster and other "bad" weapons are op af
>>3210353Hermann should definitely Von Stroheim himself if at all possible Never read worm so I don’t know if tinkers do Cybernetics but that shit would be natty af

>>3210485That would make us look far too obvious outside of armour considering we'd be 11 foot tall and built like a house.I'm more of an intelligent nanobot swarm kind of guy myself.
>>3210515IMO being a space marine is clear endgame materiel, likely long after our public persona is blown.>Intelligent nanobot swarmNeato, but not nearly Nazi enough. Purely from a thematic standpoint I believe that Hermann needs to stay with more “conventional” technologies, a la the Reich.
>>3210649>Mass production thinker A army of power armor, laser welding nazis
>>3210649I see that, but I also want to have the reactions of whoever "kills" "us" recorded when we for no apparent reason suddenly dissolve into a puddle and drain away because it was just a Doombot.Limiting ourselves just for the old Nazi aesthetic is fucking stupid and something the Nazis themselves wouldn't do. WE MUST INNOVATE. VORSPRUNG DURCH TECHNIK.Also sure we can have the Aesthetic on most of our shit but we need a secret weapon that doesn't have a swastika emblazoned onto it by default.
>>3210714I also don’t like the breaking into nanomachines concept because anything with a proper AOE energy attack will blow those things into dust. And I wasn’t referring to Nazi AESTHETIC, but rather technologies which are clearly functional and have weaknesses which can be easily compensated for. IMO more gun, more armor, more ergonomics, more optics, and more horsepower are reliable routes of design which will serve us better than any convoluted scheisse.
>>3210824It's a decent concept for every non combat scenario depending on their ability to take the appearance of other things.Nanobot Facemask to shift our appearance, Nanobot Suit to disguise ourselves as other heroes or villains etc.Also we could attempt to use them infiltrate our enemies bodies and mess with their organs.If we can pull it off It's a ridiculously useful invention and shouldn't be discounted because it might be weak durability wise.
>>3210714We can have a Norse Aesthetic, seeing as we're Eitri. We can pattern all of our devices after various Norse legends.>Gungnir is a homing rocket-spear>Dainslef is a sword that creates various substances like poisons, corrosives and mutagens>Gleipnir is a device in our power armour that makes bullshit-strong chains and containment foam>Mjolnir is a Thunder Hammer yes, the one from 40K>Svalin is a personal force-field generator
>>3212335>Bifrost is a teleportation device
>>3212335>>3212443Nice ideas, now how to give them to a Knightmare..
>>3212535Just slap em into a suit we call Sigurd or whatever.
>>3212546Oh right, also a Laser/Plasma Sword called Gram as it's main armament.
>>3212535Easy, we name them after Jotun:>Prototype Ymir Pattern>Skrymir Pattern with cloaking tech and projectors>Skadi Pattern with cryotech>Surtr Pattern with lots of pyrotech and a sword that cuts through anything (Sumarbrandr)Let's not directly rip off Knightmares though.
>>3212335>>3212443>>3212549Now THIS is tinkertech I can get behind.
>>3212335>>3212443>>3212549Now this is thinking like a mad nazi scientist!
>>3212535Fuck shitmares, use ArmSlaves
>>3212611>ArmSlaves"Can i have some Arms?" Armsmaster clone laborer colorized, August 12.
https://norse-mythology.netVery relevant because I take my naming schemes from here
>>3212611I still want our Trump Card to be the full 60 metres tall Gundam.
>>3212624What type of Gundam?
>>3212651Epyon is nice, but I've always been partial to the Zaku II. It's like the AK-47 of the series and I've always liked the design. If you want to go full ham though, we need the BIG ZAM.
Back from work, I'll start writing the interlude in like an hourI don't think I have enough time nor energy to properly run during the weekdays sadly, but I'll almost definitely be running this weekend assuming I don't get inflicted with the QM curse
>>3212653A Geloog would be pretty neat.
>>3212714Zeon had the best mech designs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sbU23M3DAo'The Man Who Sold The World'Sitting in your chair, you begin to ponder about what exactly you should do with your new piece. Pressing a button, you call someone inIn another world, you're enjoying a nice relaxing sleep.You close that reality, while sleep would be preferable, you're at a critical junction. You need to get the ball rolling. Mr Pitter walks into the room with his black sweater, his round glasses giving you a wavering look."I trust you've managed the injections I asked you earlier?""Yes""Good, I trust you've had no breach of conscience either?"He shook his head, men with problems become quite loyal once you offer them salvation. Smirking, you split realities again1/?
>>3203542I can think of something much, much, better.
>>3212837In both realities, you enter the girl's assigned room. She's visibly dazed when you first see her, likely the result of your meddling. Dressed entirely in white, her eyes eventually move to meet yours.She mutters a request, pleading for 'home'. Moving closer, you decide to experimentIn one reality, you tell her flatly No. She begins screaming, and you decide to close that world"I'm afraid I can't let you go home just yet, but I can offer you more... 'candy'""C-candy...?""Yes, that weird feeling your body's been begging for. Although only if...""If... what?""You see, pet, you have a special gift. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, those weird numbers in your head. I need them, and I need them in response to my questions." After a few seconds of consideration, she lets out a weak nod."Let's start with a simple question, what are the chances I die within in the next 24 hours?""0.00000034%""Good, now..."You split realities again, you begin asking her question after question. After the 10th, she begins refusing, claiming her head hurt. Crushing that reality, you keep asking about several topics, but your fears have been confirmed. From what you've gleaned so far, an end-bringer or something similar will attack Brockton bay within the next month or so, there's also several alarming probabilities about the next two years, but you'll tackle that problem later. You couldn't of imagined she'd be this useful this early.Leaving the room, you instruct Mr Pitter to give her a medium sized dose. Walking back to your headquarters, you begin forming plans. Luckily, you constructed several bunkers around the city in case of an end-bringer, assigning one of your men to check them wouldn't be a bad idea either...
>>3212984>>3212837Alright lads, those will be the last story/writing updates of the thread, I know this may seem annoying but can any of you archive this thread for me? Tags wise, Just put Akire, Worm, Capeshit and whatever else you think is applicable. Moving on, what do you think we should call this? I've been stuck on a name for quite a bit
>>3213008Nazi and friends. Worm story about a man that dreamed of robots
>>3213008I wonder if Coil has been feeding the girl meth.>"I'm afraid I can't let you go home just yet, but I can offer you more... 'candy'">"C-candy...?">"Yes, that weird feeling your body's been begging for. Although only if..."Because this sounds like withdrawal to me.
>>3213029You're close, it's a Tinkertech drug if i remember correctly.
