You are Otto Alphonse Quentin, and this is Super Science. Today, he is going to build a giant robot and pranking the whole city. But before that, we need to build the robot. And we are running low on materials. But that will be remedied as long as the mine is constantly mined at a faster pace.You can't wait for that day to come.Welcome back to Incompetent Magical Girl Quest where currently we are in third thread. Apologies for my intermittent updates. Something to do with real life.>To do list- Finish building your dream mecha robot to show the world your genius idea- Kids are learning how to work together. In little time, they are going to be a competent group of girls.- Destructor is your future wife fiancee, find a way to make her stop villainy/take her out.- Your Base is secured but you can make it MORE secure.- Travis company is now TransPacific Company, mine for more minerals for your future construction of your mecha- Plan something to save your school- Plan for your future wife- Deposits of iron mine are being extracted - ETA 2 days- Iron Ingots that was refined are now finished. Got 10 tonnes of Iron Ingot.- The titanium mine is now started mining.

Going to the docks where hopefully the contractor is still there, she still sits on the same spot where she plays with her tablet."I need the gold to be sold.""Oh? No cash?""Something like that."She gives you a computation and gave you the price."Before you complain, it's because I have to sell this to various persons who also ask for some grease money."Thinking about it, you could try to haggle. Raising the selling price a little bit.>Come on, I'm your number 1 customer. At least a little incentive for us. (Roll1d20)>Let's not push it. (Sell the 2 units of gold for 4 units of cash)>Something else

>>3551105"It's not that I'm complaining. I haven't started to talk about yet.""Sorry, force of habit. You know how others can be pushy when it comes to these things.""I can relate. At least on some things....""Speaking from experience?""Probably."You handed 2 units of gold to her and she will call you when the money is wired to your account.>Cash will be wired to your account in 2 days..........................Calling up Hifumi, she immediately in your side. Is she stalking you? No no, you don't want to think about it. You asked her to go with you to shop components. She immediately agrees and you go first where various components are being sold. At the junk yard."So professor. Why are we here?""To look components of course.""But this is all garbage.""Oh Hifumi, did you listen to my classes last week? Even a broken T.V has it's uses. You are there when we break apart those broken mining equipment and use the parts to run the other fixable vehicles.""Oh! I though we are buying something.""That is for later.....for now.">Roll2d100 for loots

>>3551334Quentin 78 Hifumi 75You try to rummage from the wide selection of electronics that are strewn around. After rummaging on a lot of things, both of you got something that could be useful.>You found a usable freon on a freezer>Hifumi found a working roomba>Got 10 units of components"So professor? Are we done here?">Let's search for more.

I'm thinking we build that anime recording box for her birthday.>Ask when she found out about our past.> Talk about mecha project and any robot ideas she may be thinking of.
>>3551365Changing my vote in >>3551391 to>Let's have a lunch first (what do you want to talk about?)>Ask about her friends, how are they doing.>Ask Hifumi how she felt winning the RC derby. We were worried when we found her on the rooftop all alone.>Complement the stealth technology she came up with.>We were serious earlier when we offered to make a company with her. She doesn't need any fancy degrees or accolades to prove herself to us. It's not out of pity alone. Hifumi is a good girl and she deserves to be happy.>There is also no reason for Hifumi to be out on her own all alone and with her money situation she probably is not staying in the best place. Would she want to move in with us.>Ask her when her birthday is. Building her the recording bot is a good idea.>Talk about the mech project and any ideas she might have for it and her own robots.I would suggest to wait to talk about how she figured everything out and villain stuff until we know we are alone with her.
>>3551409>>3551459"Let's have a lunch first.""Sure"Going to the nearest fastfood which is RFB where a logo is a girl laughing at you. Or maybe mocking. You won't probably know. On one corner is some action figurines with the Scarlet Girls. Free with every kids meal. But we already know most of the one who collects are adults. You order some sides while you eat the dish you made this morning with Hifumi."So, how are you feeling yesterday winning the derby? I was kinda worried that you were swinging your feet on the rooftop dangerously.""Ah......I, It's the first time I did something for myself. Mostly I just back off and let them have the spotlight. I really never that good in the middle of attention. Then I realized that, when I won for the first time. I feel ecstatic. T-that I want to keep winning.""So how did you come up with that stealth tech you get on your car?""I didn't. I just put some mirrors in a strategical position with some sensor that fakes it thinking it was there. Then the car would jam the sharpened thing you gave to me into it's motor. Never thought it would have some mini explosions ""I think, they like to use it as their mini fireworks in case they won.""Uhm.....Professor.""Yes?""Can we finish our lunch now? I think people have looking on us for a few minutes now."Looking at the people they immediately turn around their heads away minding their own business. Hifumi is blushing and you get what she meant. You scarf down all the food and both of you are out of the building.(1/2)
>>3551600Going out the store, you come back to the junkyard again to look for more things."Hifumi, as I stated yesterday or even the day after, I am really serious when I offered you to make a company. You don't need a fancy degree or accolades to prove yourself. It's not out of pity too. I mean I started tinkering on my father's garage next thing I knew I can build a walking robot out of everything from my pa's garage. I know you are a good girl and you deserve to be happy.""It's nice professor but I need some self validation for myself. If I keep leaning on too much, I would be too attached. I want to be self reliant where I can confidently do it for myself. I know you have the best interest for myself but at least give me some chance professor. To at least prove myself.""Alright......But if you need help, you know where to find me."Hifumi nods and you go back to look for more components.>Got 5 unit components....................Evening comes and you are in a swanky suit. For some reason Hifumi is the one who is grooming you."I swear professor, you may have a big brain but you really need to dress in style not because it's enough. You need to dress to impress.""I think she won't mind in whatever I wear.""Non sense. If some people saw you wear like a homeless person, someone will.....wait a minute...YOU JERK!! YOU CAUGHT ME!"You laugh as Hifumi tries to weakly punch you in your arm. A little cloth smoothing, tie tightening, slick hair, cool breaths and a killer smile. You are ready for your date."Wait professor turn around. Then give me your best killer smile."You decided to make an extra mile and pose with double finger guns. Hifumi captures a picture and both of you are out of the house."Bye professor, I'll watch the house for now.""Uhm.....You know what, sure. I'll be back."Waving at Hifumi you are now starting to sweat. What will Rina think of you right now?............................*SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*Rina glomps you with a hug rubbing your face with her......assets and you try to wiggle out and not embarrass yourself infront of the crowd. You are the one who is picking the place for the date but where was it?>An expensive restaurant?>Move theather>Airsoft match>Arcades>Park>Something else (Give me your best date plans)I didn't post the 2nd part because internet died. Very sad.
>>3552858>An expensive restaurant? If she wants. Really we just need someplace quiet to talk.>Ask Rina about herself. What was growing up with her family like? How did she get involved with the school? Did Rina have powers of her own, or is that just her sister's thing?>Discuss future plans with Rina? How long does she want to be engaged? What sort of wedding does she want: Traditional or not, large and elaborate or a small affair among friends? Where does she want to live? What about kids; Does she want her own? How many and when?>Afterwards head out and do something fun. Dinner and a movie is a classic, but maybe she would like something more going to an arcade or out dancing. Leave it up to her. Tonight is all about getting to know her better.
>>3552858 It sucks to hear your internet is still acting up. Was it just the internet was completely down or was it 4chan eating posts and connection errors. If it was like the stuff on your twitter from earlier, you might want to try changing your DNS. some of your ISP's default settings might be screwing with 4chan and/or google's captcha.
>>3552858>>Something else (Give me your best date plans)Tickets to underground Mecha fighting ring!
>>3553206You pick at one of the expensive restaurant which your money can afford it and go there. Incidentally, there isn't any people around which gives you the privacy you need."Table for two please.""Certainly sir!"The waiter leads you to the table and gave you some menu which you ordered your choice as well as Rina."To be honest, we haven't been talking personally in these past few days. But now I have a chance to know you more. So, would you tell me about yourself Rina?""Oh, uhm.....me? Well it's nothing special. I grew up with my sister and.....well there isn't really worth mentioning about my childhood. If there is one, my big sister always protect me so that is why I'm barely get bullied or getting teased. Maybe because partially, my sister also chase all the men who are trying to hit on me. It's a miracle that my sister didn't beat you up."Your head is starting to sweat. You didn't know how overprotective Rika is. If the circumstances are different, she would probably blown your head off and burn it on the ground until dust remains."I see....speaking about your sister, how did she got her powers?""Well when we we're going back home, my sister saw a black monster. At first I saw it. She didn't believe me. It followed us until my sister noticed it and kicked it and then stomping it over and over. Then she stomped something white and crawled onto her feet to her whole body. Next thing I knew, she is on fire. Then suddenly the fire is gone. My sister realized that she can only activate her powers if she is mad at something. Now she can easily activate it considering she is very mad at everyone........especially for that robot freak,,,,,OH NO NOT YOU Quentin! I know you are not like that I mean, you are not going to teach to the little children if you are evil.""Y-yeah....so, we're going to be married huh."Both of you blush at the prospect but you take the initiative."So how do we do this? How long do we want to be enganged? What sort of wedding do you want? Traditional? Modern? Do you want a large or just a small gathering? Also where do we want to live? Kids?""W-well.....we can plan and move along the way don't we?"You nod. The food comes in and both of you have a wonderful dinner. The food was great and both of you give some small talk laughing along the jokes and some funny stories. At the end of the dinner, you pay the waiter and go out.(1/2)
>>3553326"Anything you want to do?""I.....wanna go to the amusement park."And so you go to the amusement park. Even it is evening, there are still a lot of people milling around. You decided to go to the ferris wheel and ride. The ride starts to raise up and then watch the view up. Then suddenly the power went out. You are on the topmost with the city on the horizon is still bright. The view is breathtaking and instead of her panicking from the power, she dangerously stick her body out of the window and the ride wobbles dangerously."WAAAAAAAH!!! QUENTIN LOOK! I CAN SEE MY HOUSE OVER HERE!!"She points on a building where a red rooftop and you urge to go back inside. "This is the best night I ever experience Quentin.""Me too....."Both of you look each other and the night was enjoyed with the both of them.cue love song theme here...............>Tomorrow is Monday, what will you do? Rina is on your bed by the way
>>3553329Well done robbing the waifufags of their coveted lewds. I approve.
>>3553329Morning:>Cook breakfast for Rina and the usual lunches.>Offer to send a drone to her place to pick up a change of clothes if she doesn't have one at school.>Have a relaxed class period for the girls. They can tinker on materials for future projects, study, or catch up on any incomplete homework. Their assignment will be an after action engineering on their RC cars.Lunch:>Eat lunch with the Takeba sisters.>Find out how much money the derby raised for the school. Is there still a budget shortfall. When the mine is up and profitable we could contribute some funds.>Bring up starting a robotics club. (it could act as a cover for the magical girls and a place for them to recruit from if they get another hope essence.)>The date went well, so we should start planning another. In addition, maybe we should take the sisters out together one night and do a family sort of event. Maybe Rika has an idea for it.Afternoon:>Meet up with Hifumi at the airbase after school.Tell her to bring the robot we gave her.>We gathered components this weekend to help build her own set of robots. She could design her own novel designs or iterate on our original set.>Show her the mecha project. Does she have any input?Evening:>Depends on what the Takebas want to do. We could have that family night out tonight, or maybe Rina just wants watch a movie and sleep over. If neither we could gather up the girls and try to work out new battle strategies with Hifumi's new robot squad. This is what came to mind when you mentioned a love song theme. https://youtu.be/RLTJ95kj9ng
>>3553370I'd like to vote against showing Hifumi our mecha project. It's one thing to be a villain who unexpectedly decided to pursue a teaching career, and another to be a villain who's building a heavily-armed death robot. Hifumi might decide we're too dangerous to let it slip.
>>3553382The reason I brought it up is Hifumi like to sneak into our base. Considering the mecha is massive it would be hard for her to miss. So we might as well tell her about it before she gets the wrong idea.As far as I remember Otto is building the mecha mostly to prove it can be done. It's not like he was planning on using it to rampage around the city.
>>3553368More like I don't know how to lewds. Anons will be disappointed.
>>3553403That's alright I still enjoyed it.>>3553329I don't want to show hifumi the robot and I still wanna keep working on it we have to bug test.
>>3553403>Anons will be disappointedI not here for lewds I'm here to take part in role playing responsible villain
>>3553403I share the same sentiment as >>3553625.
>>3553403Lewds? Bah who needs lewds im here for fluf and teaching!
>>3553625>>3553746>>3553756>Anons say they don't want lewds>Voted to marry a mentally unstable woman they barely know
Marry her immediately. Before breakfast.
>>3555292Sometimes it's about the journey man.
>>3553370You woke up again now with someone beside you. Rina is sleeping soundly and then you remember what happened yesterday. It was probably one of your best nights in your life. The robot as always gave you a breakfast serving with extra. You gently nudge Rina awake and her eyes slowly opens."Good morning sunshine...."She looks at you, and then herself, then at you. She immediately covers herself with your blanket with an "eeeeeep"."Q-q-q-q-q-quentin.....uhm......we did it huh?""Well......there is no denying it. How about a breakfast first?""O-okay....."You pass the table in her side and she sits silently nibbles your breakfast. You then you then go to bath and ready one for herself. "W-wait!""Hm?""I....don't have any outfit that I brought with me. Will you get me a taxi so I can go home?""Uh sure."You then call the local taxi and immediately there is one waiting. You bid Rina goodbye which you will see her in the school. You get yourself a coffee and a some boxed lunches. And then you go to school......................When you go in, the trophy that was meant for Hifumi is now standing at the back of the shelf with various parts of destroyed RC car with Saki wrecking ball in the middle and Hifumi RC Car in the top that looks like it jumped from the billboard and has a frame perfect shot of it being in the air."Okay class, good job last saturday I just want to have some free study and give some time to brainstorm some ideas on that project I gave to you. If you have any questions, come to me and I'll answer the best as I could."The students huddled themselves in whispering something. There are snickers every now and then but you just let them be. Maybe they're just bouncing stupid ideas. It's nice to joke every now and then....................Lunch rolls out and you are again in the office of Rina and her sister Rika. From the blush of Rina tells you that her sister already grilled her with questions that begs "What happened yesterday, tell me everything." You just opened the boxed lunches and the three of you eat peacefully. Awfully quiet of Rika too now that she stopped teasing her little sister."So how much money did we raised for the school?""A lot, with Hifumi win, most of the winning are already distributed and with the tickets there is a lot.">You got 35 units of cash"We have generated quite a buzz to some of the students around and they wanted to transfer here. If we keep this up, we can make this school float for......the next 3 years.""Still that strapped for cash huh......""We can't do anything about it Quentin. At least Risa is working hard on the finances and trying to cut back whatever is cut."Oh yea, that short accountant who is oddly looks like an elementary student. Not that you judge but she really looks like an elementary student. The rest of the lunch was some small talk and some invitations to invite them both for some fun which Rika accepts.(1/2)
>>3556920...................Afternoon comes and you go to your base. The robots stops working with the frame but they are still working with some of the wires and components of the mecha. >Mecha status completion - 55%Hifumi is bringing a robot that is well.....not really a robot and more of an idea that you both have to suggest what kind."So Hifumi, since we are making yourself a robot to help you in your daily hero activities, what kind of frame do you want?""Well professor I do have some idea. There are....">A small humanoid type robot>A small animal type robot (what type?">A roomba she found while you are spelunking on scrapyard/spoiler]>Something else (write-in)
>>3556921>My original idea was to give Hifumi a load out similar to the one we used earlier in the story: smaller humanoid robots that could combine into a larger one and drones.(I think there was 3 of each) We already know how to use them in combat, so we can easily teach her to use them.>There is also the robot "pet" idea but I don't know if we can build a man sized or slightly larger complex robot with just 15 scrap.Sorry there's not much of a vote here. I'm sort of fresh out of ideas.Hope you're feeling better QM.
>>3557004You have a better idea. You have you mini robots and it's better than building a new one instead. You just need or ask Hifumi to customize it to her specification.>Weaponry>Taser>Jammer>Small UAV Radar with IFF identification>Security door unscrabler and security cam jammer.>Do you want to keep the weaponry of your robot or add another one? Please note that this is a small one so some suggestion might not fit on a small framed robot.(Write-in)
>>3556921This is funny. Hifumi was in the middle of saying something and he just shuts her down and hands her his old crime-bot. Hifumi may become Professor Silver's sidekick down the line so it makes sense her robots should follow his theme. Can't help but think her bot should be cuter than Quentin's soulless automatons though.Going along with the robot-pet thing, does this have an autonomous AI already or is the whole thing remote controlled? I would think trying to get her into the action more means the robot needs to be able to take verbal cues so she can be in the fight instead of fifty feet back guiding a drone around. All the jammers and door openers seem very anti-hero too so she'd remove them. Saki punching a door open is already pretty fast so I can't imagine her using it in the field anyway.Keep the taser but add a bolas launcher or some other grappling wire as the weapons. Zip cuffs and anything extra should be in a utility belt type storage on the bot's back so Hifumi can use it rather than relying on the robot to do all the hero-ing and make her feel useless.
>>3557164>That sounds good. Magical girls need to worry about getting recorded too.>Ask Hifumi about her idea too. These robots are just a start for the time being. We would help her build whatever she asks.
>>3557164>>3557231>Keep the taser but add a bolas launcher or some other grappling wire as the weapons. Zip cuffs and anything extra should be in a utility belt type storage on the bot's back so Hifumi can use it rather than relying on the robot to do all the hero-ing and make her feel useless.These are good points. We should add these features on if possible.
>>3557231>>3557246>>3557249You take one of your old robots and present it to Hifumi. She tilts her head and then says something."Professor, do you know that you are giving me something that Saki and Caroline will notice right away right?""Yes? And I'm giving it to you.""Hmmm.....maybe I'll repaint it and make it cuter maybe they won't notice a thing.""Will that even work?""Of course......"....................After repainting and maybe changing some part to make it recognizable. You would say that you made something.....amazing."Say, did we just made a miniature robotic girls?""I dunno professor, but I'm proud of myself that we made something like this.""Although it was mostly our 3D printer made some things.""I didn't know your 3D printer can melt some steel to print some of your parts professor. I thought you need to fabricate and make precision cuts to make them.""Nah, I'm just lazy. Also cost effective. I wouldn't know how brittle it is though."What is not standing is a girl with the same hair as Hifumi and has a very slender frame. Some of the jammers and door openers were removed and instead replaced it with thick nylon with pebble-type weight that would act as a launcher that will be thrown to the opponent and subdue them. There is also a metal wire that act as a grapping hook. There are a lot of things that was added to them and you honestly say that the robot was cute."So what do you want to name her?""Hmmmmmm Ai-chan!""Alright, go wake her up.""Ai-chan! Wake up!"The robot slowly open her eyes and looks at you then at her."Booting sequence initiated, all systems nominal. SI-OS booted successfully......"You watch the robot speaks her primary diagnostic checks until it changed into a peppy genki girl."Hello everyone! So which one is my master?"You point it to Hifumi which she faces and then bows."My name is Ai-chan. Nice to meet you Master! So what is you name?""Ah....Hifumi.""Alright Hifumi-san I'll be in your care."Hifumi is speechless. Man you really outdone yourself today.>???? is created. You can now create similar things. Although you don't have a name for them...................Hifumi goes with Ai and tries various moves and things that will help her in her hero things. And you can't help but smile when Hifumi is having fun with her robot. You just decided to leave her be and have her fun.Evening comes and for the first time ever you visit the Takeba residence. They lived on the upscale part of the town where large houses are a common theme here. While Takeba have short one floor house but they have a wide plot of land that the house is probably 50 meters wide. Maybe it's because the house is traditional itself with wooden floors and everything with some modern mixed in the back of the house. You go rang the doorbell which shows a T.V. and saw Rina face.>Did you brought something? Or maybe something planned? (write-in)
>>3557328>bring a movie that might interest the sisters. (Maybe we asked Hifumi for a good suggestion). Alternatively maybe they would like to head out to the arcades. It’s up to the sisters. It’s a night to have fun with family.
>>3557380>It’s a night to have fun with family.Boardgames it is. >>3557328Rina, do you Catan?
>>3557408I had that idea, but was having a hard time coming up with a good co-op game for the situation.
>>3557412Any RPG would be cooperative and very meta, but lets avoid that. If it's just three people, unless Hifumi is following us in the shadows as usual, than team games are out too. Fuck it. Instead of a real game do some in universe co-op board game with vague rules and a catchy title.
>>3557432I'm trying to keep the sisters from competing to avoid the completion spilling over into being about Otto.I haven't really played a lot of co-op games with my group. The only two I came up with are "Pandemic" games and there is "Sentinels of the Multiverse" (which could be hilarious to have a pair of supervillains playing a co-op deck builder about superheroes stopping a villain.)
>>3557459There is also Arkham Horror and Elder Sign. Forgot those.
>>3557459Also sentinel is a fixed deck game. You have a set of powers you use depending on which character you pick. Played it a couple of time 4 years ago. So I’m a little foggy on how the game works. Even though I would lean a bit to it for maximum in character irony.
Rolled 1 (1d2)1 for movie night2 for board game
>>3557603>>3557380Movie Night then....what genre of movies you want to pick? Feel free to write in your ideas.
>>3557695Something about giant robots.Obviously, those are the most kino.
>>3557695>Something action with explosions and robots. Rika and Otto will both approve.>A Romcom for Rina>Maybe Hifumi might have a suggestion for a good movie to show the women.
>>3558146Tucker and Dale vs Evil?
>>3557699>>3557722>>3558146>>3558341You go inside and you brought some movies with you. Rina is delighted and will ready the living room while Rika is doing the snacks. You meanwhile put the movie in ready. Minutes later, snacks are ready, sisters in both sides squishing you with their assets and the movie is played. There might be a little touchy here and there but no one escapes the eyes of Rina. If you have to ask, she is the one who is easily jealous. Or maybe that is just a sibling thing. Hopefully a sibling thing................>*one hour earlier*You are fumbling on your phone thinking what kind of movies you want to bring. With no one to turn on to (since you have limited friends.) You call Hifumi who is also watching something. "Hifumi, I need you advice.""What was it professor."There is a moan in the backgroud but you ignored it."Can you give me some movie recommendations?""Professor.....you know that you are asking a shut-in neet who only watches anime and nothing else right?""Yes."Hifumi sighs "Alright here.....".....................The sisters are in the edge of the seat as the hero who is on the giant robot versus the evil who is also in giant robot is having a duel. Surprisingly the evil won in the robot fight. When the hero was ejected from his destroyed robot and the evil mastermind gloats at the hero. He summons the power of friendship, hardship and lastly hope to become strong again and defeating him with a gun......In all honesty. It was anti-climatic to you. He has a gun in a first place why didn't he used it. But in the meantime. Rina and Rika cheered for the hero that he won. And then they both hug you. Of course you won't get away from that. ...............Then the next movie that you have on your hand is The Loan of the Rings. It was a story of two best friends who loaned an expensive wedding ring for their fiances but sadly the one they loaned was from a mafia. High jinks assured as they worked hard to dodge while making money to pay their dues. But not until the mafia found out their wives with the ring already worn which they were kidnapped. They gone on a daring rescue full of fails and luck defeating the mafia and rescued their wives. The end credits roll where they claimed a huge amount of bounty and live on a rich life but sadly, fate has another store in them as the ring fell down to the well. Which is the part 2 of the movie. Sadly you didn't bring the part 2. Jokes and laughs were encountered along the way and they really liked it.....................Several movies later and you think that you hit your limit. Rina is sleeping beside you but Rika is now openly groping you."So what now cassanova? Will you stay here for the night?">Will you stay here for the night?>Yes>No>Hifumi>Something else (Write-in)
>>3559196Something Else:>"While I'll take *that* as your permission to stay, Rika. I've got to wonder what Rina, my fiancee, would say before I cross a line. I don't want you two sisters fighting and I really don't want to ruin your relationship over me.">Hold Rika's offending hand with your left and move it back to her lap. Use your right arm to hug Rina and gently shake her awake.>"Rina, darling, Rika was asking if I am staying over. What do you think?"
>>3559196>>3559352Add on to the first paragraph.>and I really, really don't want to break Rina's heart.can't believe I forgot that when I wrote it up.
>>3559352>>3559426"Rika, I know you have Rina best interest in heart, I've gotta wonder what Rina, my fianee would say before I cross a line? I don't want you two sisters fighting over me and especially ruining a relationship between you two."This gives Rika some pause. "I....yeah. I maybe teased both of you a lot. Maybe I'm jealous. I really did want my sister happiness but what about me? I....I was thinking that maybe just maybe......no. It's not possible. I'm sorry Quentin."Rika stands up and goes to her room. You gently nudge Rina awake."Bwuh? Movies is over?""Rika said I can stay here. What do you think?""Let's sleep in my room them. I wanna hug you again.""Alright......."Both of you go to Rina's room and sleep soundly that night...............Tomorrow is Tuesday what will you do?>To do list- Finish building your dream mecha robot to show the world your genius idea- Kids are learning how to work together. In little time, they are going to be a competent group of girls.- Destructor is your future wife fiancee, find a way to make her stop villainy/take her out.- Your Base is secured but you can make it MORE secure.- Travis company is now TransPacific Company, mine for more minerals for your future construction of your mecha- Plan something to save your school- Plan for your future wife in progress- Deposits of iron mine are being extracted every 2 days- Another batch of irom mine are ready to be transported (Currently you have 20 units of iron ingot stacked at your company warehouse)- The titanium mine is now started mining.

ETA - Tomorrow- Anything your forgot and not mentioned here>Assets14 units of gold4 unit of moneyAbandoned airstrip (Security: Good)Your house (Residential Area)TransPacific Mining Company (Mining Company)
I also forgot>Tomorrow you will get some budget for real estate funds to be bought by your company.
>>3559759Morning:>Head back to our place to change, have the robots cook lunch, and pick some things up. >Class: The girls might be ready to work with smaller components. Assignment: Microsoldering. Bring in our own microscope and hot air gun, along with some components and boards. First the girls will look over schematics. Them one group at a time will diagnose and attempt to repair the circuit boards.>Talk to the scarlet girls to schedule another training session. >take aside Hifumi. She should give the other old robot we gave her a makeover like Ai-Chan. I know she already turned us down for a job. but there would be a serious market for robots like these. Would she like to be our businesses partner selling robotic assistants. (Our robotics company)Lunch:>Eat with the sisters. >Bring up to Rika that we should help her try to get back into the dating scene. She shouldn’t be lonely and deserves someone that loves her. We will try to help as best as we can. Maybe one of the students has a single dad that might be Rika’s speed. Afternoon:>Head back to the airstrip and start to research the damaged property in town, while we wait for Hifumi to arrive. Get a list of bank foreclosures. See if Caroline’s house is on the list.>Make over Hifumi’s other robot. Has Hifumi ever thought about using guns in combat. Maybe we could bold her a tranq rifle/pistol. Evening:>Training session with the girls. Try to get the girls use to working with Hifumi’s robots. Saki had a robot idea; what is it?
>>3559760Sorry >>3559857 took so long to type. My computer died. I think the power supply went bad. Welp time to deal with warranties. Does our research on the girls have anything about their families. I have a hunch that Saki’s tomboyish nature maybe from being raised by a single dad, or lots of brothers (but that would be less useful) or maybe Marissa’s father might be another candidate as much as I hate mixing doujins (When You Wish Upon a Star) with touhou cannon. I think we just do the background research on the properties today. Then handle the logistics with the accountant and get some aluminum for the mecha all at once tomorrow.
>>3559759Would it be in bad taste to take the entire class on a field trip to the junkyard?Research local marriage laws for things like multiple spouses, robots, age limits, and all that jazz.
>>3559939You don't have information about their families that much. Although I can give you some information.Saki family is yes, raised as a single parent with his father but he didn't have brothers. Instead she has 3 little sisters. And who does protect all of them? Onee-chan would!You already know how scummy Caroline family is. But her mother is currently living in luxury away from her family after the eventual disabled Mr. Travis.Hifumi is....well. Maybe he has a very strict asian-like parents and would push their children to be better than their parents.....and not repeat the same mistakes they did.>>3559941>Field Trip to the junkyardMaybe a Field Trip to a robotic expo?
>>3559941>Would it be in bad taste to take the entire class on a field trip to the junkyard?What about an electronics recycling center. We already had lessons on reusing components. We could teach the girls about reclaiming copper and gold from scrap leading up to it.
>>3559952>>3559949Yeah, that's more appealing than tetanus. I couldn't think of where to go to do what we did with Hifumi earlier and I feel like she is a good canary for things to do with the class.
>>3559949>Saki family is yes, raised as a single parent with his father but he didn't have brothers. Instead she has 3 little sisters. And who does protect all of them? Onee-chan would!My hunch was close. Saki’s dad might be a perfect candidate to set up on a double date with Rika. That way Otto and Rina can be there for emotional support. Rika and Saki have a lot in common. That’s perfect. We have a decent shot we can resolve the town’s immediate problem peacefully. there is the larger question of someone sent Rika after the girls.
>>3559759>>3559857 has good ideas and I will support them.
>Hello? Is this the Mitsuko Detective Agency?>Yes yes you called? How can I help you?>I have a problem. A very big problem. You see 3 weeks ago my 5 trucks worth o gold bar was stolen. The heroes failed to find them and some one told me that you can find things very precisely.>Yup, that's me....>Then can you help me? We can discuss payment if you can retrieve my gold.>Sure, How many units of gold did you lost?>About 20-30 units>Okay we'll take 5% of the gold. Deal?>That is fine.>Good, give us your address and we will come over there.>..........>Great, thank you for using our service.The phone call ends and you shout"Junkooooooooooo, can I bring Rei with me? We gonna look for gold.""Go, I'm busy as it is......""Okaaaaaaay.""And Yuu for the last time please be careful. I can't be there instantly you know?""That's why I'm bringing Rei with me.""Alright, stay safe."
>>3560201 oh shi-Detective Yuu is back on the case. She wasn’t who I was expecting to show up from MGR. I glad she did I sort of miss the MGR characters.
>>3560250How was mgr? Was in the first thread but wasn't able to keep up.
>>3560283It’s pretty good and was a fun ride. There’s a bit where it got a little patchy near the end, but it finishes strong. Qm’s writing gets much better from the first thread.
>>3560250 The people staring at Hifumi in the restaurant could be Yuu and Rei. I had a feeling we might be getting tailed by someone from there (if it wasn't just rando's who watched the derby), but I was expecting Organization people. If it was Yuu and Rei it will be pretty interesting to see what happens if they tail us to our meeting with the scarlet girls tonight. Magical girls are really rare in this world and they don't usually operate openly. The girl team in MGR hadn't met any others until the plot began. Also, thank goodness Yuu didn't have the sense to bring Natalya with her.
>>3560201So how are we going to deal with this problem?I say pay them off.
>>3560481That is one way but there are others. Yuu is a bit of a goody-two-shoes even though she killed some yakuza thugs with her bare hands and flying kicks, but she might not even remember that. 1.) We could have a "legitimate" reason to have the gold. We own a mining company and we owned one on paper before we took over the Travis company. As I brought up earlier, recast the bars as our company property and in essence launder them. Besides the US, many gold rich areas happen to not be in the most stable or well connected parts of the world. We could change the gold into another form with the refinery which ties into option 22.) The girls are looking for 20-30 gold bars not other things. First off, we have less than that. If we start the Robotics company we could have an excuse to have large quantities of gold foil or wire for chip fab or circuit boards. We have a "legitimate reason" for having it and it's not what the girls are looking for. Like option one we need some creative accounting to explain where the money came from to purchase it, but Travis had no problems embezzling money to Switzerland before we took over. We could also sell the gold legitimately then. No one would bat an eye at a company with a refinery selling gold foil/wire to an electronics company or an electronics company off loading excess supplies.3.) Move the gold by tunneling. We use/make more mining bots to tunnel under the city to move the gold to avoid drawing attention.4.)Too big to Jail:: Our magical girls have managed to single handedly destroy a good swath of the town and probably with it portions of the local economy. We bought out the town's largest employer (which was floundering) and start buying up real estate to fix up the town. We create most of the taxable revenue for the city. The bank that lost the gold now has a very valuable trust that we control and would move if they started asking too many questions. Start donating money to the school since the company is on the cusp of being profitable. In essence we become too big to jail and no one in town would want to cooperate with Yuu even if they knew we were guilty.5.) Convince Yuu we're worth helping regardless of the theft. Yuu can probably understand our girls predicament and she is a really friendly girl. We are trying to make the girls into competent heroines but we aren't a magical girl ourselves there is only so much we can do. She could help with that. Plus at least according to Hifumi. The government is pissed at the girls and that's when Destructor showed up. (a bit ooc but Yuu will jump to help if she thinks that the organization might be rearing its head). As far as the stolen money we have been using it to help. Similar reasons to option 4 above.
>>3560563I forgot on 5 if Yuu wind up reporting any of this back to Junko, Junko would probably find the potential allies more valuable than 5% of the gold. Plus she has access to Okada's money anyway. Having Junko build magical girl Outer Heaven was one of the things I was looking forward to in a sequel.
>>3560332Then I'll try to check it out again.
>>3559857Morning comes and you smell the peach fragrance of your nose. In your right side is a soft skin of your fiancee Rina and on your left is.... another one? Jolting up and uncovering the sheet reveals the underwear-clad Rika."Mmmnnnnn.....5 more minutes...."You slowly go out of the bed and not risk waking up Rika, when you got successfully crawled out. You give Rina a kiss and whisper to her."I'll see you at school.""Mhnnnn......love you."You kiss her forehead and you slowly walk out of the room to get them breakfast. Finish cooking some of them, you put a sticky note and you go home to get ready for work...............You brought something that you we're fond back in the days. You brought a medium sized food plastic ware where some small components are there. When you opened the door you announced...."Alright everyone, remember this one?""A tamagochi?""Yes and every single one is broken. I ha brought some parts but the thing is, it's very small. So today lesson is microsoldering. But before that, some safety video. Watch this.You then taught the rest of the class how to do it safely and efficiently.............After the class, you called the Scarlet Girls to schedule another training."Sorry professor but we gonna meet up one of that investigators who is looking for our sponsors gold. In fact she will arrive in half an hour. Sorry about that professor." Saki explained."Well it's alright, I hope the culprit is apprehended."For some reason Hifumi giggled. The two looked at her and she immediately looked at her phone. "Sorry, watched a funny video. Don't mind me.""Anyway as I was saying, did you have a clue who stole it?""Well he has a robot that's for sure."Hifumi giggled again. The two looked at her and she raised her one hand in apology."I'm hoping that isn't me?""Oh no professor I'm sure the one who did it is a huge nerd. I mean you are a nerd but you share your nerdiness to us.""I believe it's called brilliance not nerd.""Yeah that. Also he has the same height as you."At this point, Hifumi break out a loud laugh at herself."Are you okay Hifumi?""I'm sorry, it's too funny." Hifumi can't stop her giggling, still shaking from her laughs."I think you should go before Hifumi is gonna bust another big laugh.""Ohohohohoho....good one professor." Hifumi still laughing."I think this is the first time I saw Hifumi laugh this hard." Caroline mutters."And so dark too..... like some cliche demon queen laugh."The trio goes on to calm Hifumi before going out of the school. Hopefully this investigators are incompetent.............Lunch came and Rina is busy doing something. You came in with a lunch in hand and you can't see Rika here."Hello, busy?""Yeah, having a sports meet next week. I'm going to schedule a Parents Meeting for the upcoming event. That's why I'm working something to present on the parents.""I see....I won't bother you then but don't forget to eat alright?"(1/2)
>>3561658"Thanks"You leave Rina do her work............Afternoon comes, you go to the City Land Assessor's Office to see if there is a land that was for sale. They gave you a long list of land that was either for sale, lease and rent.>Uptown part. Safe area 5 units of money per 500 square meter.>City area. Despite the fact that this are is destroyed a lot but it still has a medium price. 4 units per 400 square meter in city center, 3 per 500 square meter in the outside and border of the city.>Outskirts. Most of the place is either a forest, agricultural or a residential one. 2 units per 500 square meter.(Map will follow currently in phone)
>>3561680>If this is a vote for purchase, we still need to meet up with the accountant from the mining company to find out how much money we have to play with and the feasibility of hiring back the furloughed/more workers.>Also are there any foreclosed properties from the bank. The point was to get the reaserch done ahead of time so we can kill two birds with one stone tomorrow. When we meet with the accountant/pick up some titanium.
>>3561680>City area. Despite the fact that this are is destroyed a lot but it still has a medium price. 4 units per 400 square meter in city center, 3 per 500 square meter in the outside and border of the cityBuy like, 3 plots at the border and 5 in the center to expand corporate operations into R&D and Manufacturing.
>>3561680I'm liking both>>3561709>>3562769We should talk to the school account too. She's probably very skilled and could handle our money well
>>3562769>>3563779I'm still on waiting for the accountant but city expansion thing is a great idea. I don't know if we need extra room at the moment but if we start up the robotics company and maybe spin off the real estate business from Transpacific we would need more office space. Also, I second talking to the school accountant. She can help us out and we can finally talk about sponsoring the school.>My idea with that sort of layout is to create a Mixed-Use zone (Homes of some variety and commercial property). Home-building is a decent business, but the real long term profits come from rent on commercial properties, the business that service the community you built.>If we wind up building or owning any type of residential property talk to the company accountant about starting a corporate rent-to-own program. (Make sure that it is fair to employees and a lower rate than taking out a bank loan)This serves our purposes in a number of ways.1.)The employees get a good deal on paper. They get a shiny new house/apartment/condo at a cheaper price than taking out a mortgage from the bank and at a comparable cost to renting a property. They might also be closer to work.2.) We take the money out of their check, so in essence we get to pay some employees less for property we aren't planning on holding for the long term. This saves the company money while making the employees happy.3.) It would seed a new residential development with people, which does two things. It makes moving a business to the district more attractive to other companies. There is demand from people already living there for stuff like markets and restaurants. Making us more money on commercial rent. Secondly, the more people moving into a neighborhood the more desirable the property is. We get to artificially limit the amount of homes in the community, so we can drive up the cost of any residential property we build.>Get the accountant and his team together to negotiate a land deal with the city for a better price.4 and 3 units of cash for ruins and forest respectively isn't a very good deal. This is the time to negotiate as: 1.) We have an actual company interested in developing the area. The city isn't making tax money from rubble and trees. However, the city will make money off property taxes and businesses, which we intend to make a reality.2.) We are buying property in bulk3.) The city's property isn't very attractive thanks to the crime and magical girls. So we can easily argue the property is overpriced.>Have the company apply for logging permits from the city.If we expand into the outskirts we will have to deal with the forest anyway and it gives us another potential income stream.
>>3564207I was thinking with dedicated R&D and Manufacturing facilities we could build more robots and lease them to competitors for a percentage of their income, or product.And further advance our own gear and facilities effectively turning them into vassals of sorts before buying them out.Effectively paying us for the privilege of joining our team.Maybe turn one or two into a more or less direct henchman factory.
>>3564207We would need to hide our ill-gotten gold gains from the school accountant, and if she's as shrewd as you hope she'll find us out.
>>3564267It's a good idea. (The leasing robots thing was exactly what I was planning for Travis before he decided to be a dickhead) I'm just concerned that the expansion is a little premature. We don't have a robotics company, yet. It's only Otto and Hifumi making robots, so what good will the extra space do without bring on more people. The same goes for R&D. I would want to make sure our designs are protected by patents and everything looks legitimate on paper at least before we spend money on land dedicated to a new company and hire people we can't necessarily trust with our designs. I was looking to prioritize having more mid to long term income with real estate. We are looking profitable now, but I want to make sure the company is profitable indefinitely before expanding, but it might be possible to do both.The city wants way too much for the land. If we can't talk them down on price maybe we could get them to throw in some of the land on the outskirts for free. We could build properties to rent and sell closer to town and build our facilities outside the city. Something like this. Excuse my poor MS Paint skills. I also wanted to draw little buildings in the map but I think the zones get the point across. Being outside the city limits makes it easier to expand and we have to deal with less oversight from the city.
>>3564315That's a good point. We should just show her the corporate books, not our personal finances. We could also downplay how much we payed for the company. The other thing I forgot to mention in my last post is with people asking questions do we really want to be publicly know for building robots. If we create a robotics company Yuu and Rei might put two and two together quicker. This isn't a vote for or against it. It's just a thought.
>>3564337>We should just show her the corporate books, not our personal financesThis basically means we would have no way of using the corporate funds for our dream mecha.
>>3564367I would need to look into it but I assume we have some sort of corporate salary/stock dividends/percentage share of profits depend on how the company is set up. That would be our money to spend freelyIf we do create a robotics company we could just label the mech as one of its projects. Then we own one giant, shiny death machine legally and can devote resources to it as we see fit.
>>3564367Also alternative we can not bring up our finances with her, just sponsoring the school.
>>3564389That's fine with me.
>>3561680Thanking the agent, you go out and back to your base. Calling Hifumi, you were poked by a small robot. Specifically, Ai-chan."Hello Master, I'm here for Master Hifumi. I will do what you want me to do. Currently, my master is talking with the two new people they are escorting. Query: What do you want me to do today?">Improve Ai-chan (What?)>Wait for Hifumi >Something else(Oh yeah, to avoid confusion. I was giving you a list so you can decided what you can buy tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to explain it because I was too busy doing things.
>>3565848>Two new people?>Work on plans for a power armor/exo-suit.
>>3565848>"Oh I didn't expect she would still be out with them. I wanted to help her upgrade the other robot I gave her to be like you Ai-chan. That and I had a couple of other things I wanted to talk to her about.">Wait for Hifumi>Work on plans for a power armor/exo-suitNot a bad idea. We have literally gotten nothing done today (other than teaching/research). Might as well have something to show for it.
>>3565848Just a couple other things I though of>>3565921.>Keep an eye on your home sensors.>potentially make some security upgrades for the home and the base (maybe some more security robots?)
>>3565881>>3565921"Oh I didn't expect she would still be out with them. I wanted to help her upgrade the other robot I gave her to be like you Ai-chan. That and I had a couple of other things I wanted to talk to her about.""Waaaaahhh~ Do i get a sister?""A sis....uhhh yeah. Something like that."What kind of AI did you put on this again? To be honest it was a blur that both you and Hifumi is so engrossed in work."Anyway, let's work on a power armor or an exo suit. For Hifumi. She would need some extra protection and some minor boost in power. There is only so little things she could do and I do want to help her. Ai-chan can you download some template designs to your master?""Of course. Scanning...................Body resizing................Final Adjustments.............Analysis complete. I would recommend this suggestions.>Power Armor - offers high protection but has a very limited customization and also slightly heavy>exoskeletal suit - offers a boost in speed, has medium custumization. Can be easily concealed with clothes but damn that looks ugly in design and aesthetics>Fabric-type armor - offers a little bit of protection and speed. Has limited customization.
>>3565964>>exoskeletal suit - offers a boost in speed, has medium custumization. Can be easily concealed with clothes but damn that looks ugly in design and aestheticsAlso the exoskeleton can be the base of any power armor we develop in the future.>Work on the concealability and making it less ugly design wise.we can maybe do better.
>>3565968Sometimes A.I. prefers performance than designs and aesthetics so I can't blame the Ai-chan if she recommends this
>>3565964>exoskeletal suit - offers a boost in speed, has medium custumization. Can be easily concealed with clothes but damn that looks ugly in design and aesthetics.
>>3565971Yeah Ai can lose subtle details, look at any machine translation for example.>Although the Ai is really impressive. We should consider upgrading our personal robots too. Once again this tech is really marketable and we should consider making a company to sell it.
>>3565968>>3565972You pick the exoskeletal suit. You and Ai-chan simulate hundreds of design because the one she suggested was....let's say that Hifumi would look like a butchered gattai in that get-up. After several revisions and some performance decrease nagging from Ai-chan, you got your final product. A clothed exoskeleton."I must say, this is sufficient for Master Hifumi. This suit will upgrade her overall performance.""Yeah...still, why did you suggest this first?""I want to see her squirm."Welp, she is your robot alright.....at least the bullying part. "I think your algorithms are at mess right now to think something twisted to you rmaster.""Oh no, it seems i like thinking dark things too. Makes me calculate very efficiently in worst case scenario. "Moving on, you said two people?""Yes, I did get their conversation too....playing recording no.3">"Hello, so you are the girls that are protecting this town?">"Yes we are, I am Saki, this is Caroline and that is Hifumi. We are the Scarlet girls.">"My name is Yuu and this is Rei, she is kinda the silent type so bear with her.">"Oh no don't worry, we have one too. Hifumi look, your soulmate.">"Ah please don't joke like that Saki-san, N-nice to meet you two.">"Awww shucks, don't worry about it. Hifumi right? and you are Caroline.">"Nice to meet you.">"So can you bring me to the scene of the crime?">"Sure, follow me."The the connection cut off."That is the time when you called Hifumi and I was here in her place."This is bad, someone sent a probe on the stolen gold you did. With one of your accomplice on them you could twist it and take the blame on someone else. "Professor?""Ah, I'm alright Ai-chan. Anyway, let's wait for Hifumi alright?"(1/2)
>>3566172An hour later, Hifumi arrives at your base."Master Master, come quick! Me and Master Quentin made something for you?""Huh? What was it Ai-chan."You were monitoring the robot progress and you can see it coming together. Sadly there is no materials left and you might have to wait for 2 days for the titanium metal to roll in.>Mecha progress 59% Construction stopped, no materials left.Ai-chan tried to take off the cloth.....or she tries. Bless her. With her small stature, it's funny that she tries her best. How cute.....No no, distractions. You come closer to help Ai with the unveiling. "Well, Hifumi, I hope this help. Unf...."Hifumi hugs you or more like, Hifumi tackle hugs you."M......Professor. I.....why do you care so much on me? I...don't really deserve this.">Response to a crying Hifumi? (write-in)
>>3566180>Hug her back.>"Hifumi, you deserve so much more than you know. I meant what I said earlier about wanting my daughter to be like you. Sometimes Hifumi, you remind me of myself at your age so much it's scary. It's like you really could my daughter and the more time I spend with you, the more and more I want to treat you like one.">"So understandably I worry for you. I don't want to see you get hurt in a fight. It bothers me that you've had to take the risks you did to get ahead, much more that you've had to steal to eat before. I don't want you to have to go down the same path I did.or to take to heart all of those mean things you've said about yourself till they become a self-fulfilling prophecy. I never want you to burn out and give up like I did. When I saw you alone up on top of the school that night, I was worried that despite everything you might already be there and were considering doing something drastic. I worry about what you have to do for money, about you living alone in a place that's probably not the best, and I worry about your future if people treat you the way they treated me.">"I worry about you not because I look down on you or your capabilities, but rather I see myself in you and I look up to you. I want the best for you; to succeed where I failed. I want life to be easier for you than it was for me. I understand you want to be independent and walk your own path but I will do all I can to assist you. If it was me it would have been what I would have wanted but I would have been too proud to admit it out loud.">"Hifumi, I know I've brought up work or starting a business with you a couple of times. It's the same thing. I'm not doting on you out of pity. I honestly think you're far more knowledgeable and capable at your age than people are giving you credit for. You would be a good business partner and we could go far together. Seriously, helping me come up with Ai-chan--that was ingenious! AI robotic assistants alone could make a great company but I know if we stick together we could come up with so many more ideas. Think about it Hifumi. I really would like to work with you more. If we succeed the money would be good and I hope it would make your parents proud. I would be if you were my daughter.
>>3566180Also I could have misread something, but shouldn’t the first batch of titanium be ready tomorrow? (Unless you are including time to move it to the airstrip?)It’s late so I could be missing something.
>>3566323Moving back plus refining into ingots.
>>3566180>pat her head"You're a good kid with a good head on your shoulders. You deserve to have someone looking out for you when they can.""And when I can't? I make things, and delegate. Like to Ai-chan for example."
>>3566310You hug her back."You're a good kid with a good head on your shoulders. You deserve to have someone looking out for you when they can. And when I can't? I make things, and delegate.

It's the same thing. I'm not doting on you out of pity. I honestly think you're far more knowledgeable and capable at your age than people are giving you credit for. You would be a good business partner and we could go far together. Seriously, helping me come up with Ai-chan--that was ingenious! AI robotic assistants alone could make a great company but I know if we stick together we could come up with so many more ideas. Think about it Hifumi. I really would like to work with you more. If we succeed the money would be good and I hope it would make your parents proud. I would be if you were my daughter.""I'm glad that you say those good things to me but.....I can't abandon my parents. Especially my brothers and sisters. But I guess, I'm the one that distances myself to my family. That I'm the one running away from them. And when I realized, I see you as my father figure."(1/2)
>>3566370"It's okay to be confused. You're still young. Bring this with you and go home for now. you must be tired. Or do you want to have some dinner with me?""S-sure.....I'll go eat dinner with you."And so both of you go home the night sky slowly covers the area in black.......................>Meanwhile at the bank."Hmmmm let's see.....""Yuu, found something.""Really?""Here"".........*TRACK* Woah......long way to go.""If my map is correct, this would lead to....docks?""Maybe they safekeeping it on one of the warehouse. Let's go Rei."......................"Evening comes, and with full belly along with Hifumi, you decided to..."*RING RING RING*"Hello?""This is the contractor. You gold has been snuffed.""Wait what?""Yeah, I've been meaning to get rid of it but for some reason someone got an info out of us. If we don't act fast, we would be found out."You start sweating bullets right now. Is this what Hifumi and the girls told you about?"Professor? What is happening?">I'm going out to help a friend>You're serious that you're going to be my apprentice right? Well, welcome to your first villain breakout.>Something else (write-in)Next thread I might change it to Slightly Incompetent Magical Girls Quest.
>>3566373>”I uh, well no point in hiding it from you. Hifumi, I need your help. Those girls are after a friend of mine and if I don’t help her, I might be next.”>Use the mining robots to move the gold away from our house by tunneling underground while we are dealing with the girls at the docks.
>>3566373So the warehouse isn't secure but it is by the docks meaning it'd be easy to simply drive an armored car or three full of gold into the water and remove the trail or at least make it too costly to search for. Just need a discreet way to track where they sink to and a boat to haul up the loot some weeks later. Worst case scenario, we have to rob another bank.To Hifumi. So you know how I was a villain and retired to teach. Funny thing. I need to go somewhere and do something so I can continue to not be a villain and I need you to trust me and not follow. Can you do that for me?
>>3566412”I uh, well no point in hiding it from you. Hifumi, I need your help. Those girls are after a friend of mine and if I don’t help her, I might be next.”"What? The girls? That fast?""Maybe someone must have employed a competent or maybe a very good one.""Well professor I'll help you. As well as Ai-chan.""I'll do my best.""Alright.......let's go.".................You meet with the contractor and you."So what is one of the heroes doing here?""She's with me.""Oh? Corrupting the young ones I see, well beggars can't be choosers. Let's go."The three of you....well 3 and a pint size one are moving quietly."Do you think they are professionals?" You asked."They are...." Hifumi answers. "They are the same as us.""Magical Girls? Wow, that really sucks. That is why they probably have the best success in doing this."You are at the area where you see two individual walking closer and closer to the safe."There is my safe. We need to get out the gold. I don't care what is inside. I don't want to go to jail.""Alright but.....how?">Hifumi you go in.>You'll try to distract them>This is you place Contractor, you can tell them to fuck off.>Hmmm.....Ai-chan, distract them....I mean a cute little robot might work.>Something else.....
>>3566445>us but also the contractorI mean legally she's in the right, and it presents "The guy with the mining company using a contractor to secure robot parts" as "Just a guy that exists near her" giving us a solid alibi to continue about our business as usual.
>>3566445>Contractor, do you have any security we should know about?>Hifumi, have the other girls seen Ai-Chan?>Alright, I will use my robots to cause a giant ruckus outside and make it look like someone else is robbing the place. Then try to lead the girls on a wild goose chase away from here back to the bank. Hifumi, you use you abilities to sneak inside to get out the gold. Contractor see if you can get inside too; if Hifumi can’t get to the safe she will run interference for you. Hifumi, send Ai-Chan outside to further distract the girls and tell them that you overheard the destruction and are on your way to fight crime. I’m going to coordinate everything. And try to keep everyone on the same page Hifumi have your phone or radio, what about you contractor?”
>>3566445Distract them by acting like you already have the stuff and flipping them the bird as you drive off. Hifumi and the contractor should then be able to move the gold to someplace secure or just anywhere off site. Again, the docks are right there.
>>3566453I’m not sure what you’re getting at here.Also I’m not sure how good my plan is. I just didn’t want to only send out AI-Chan alone to keep Hifumi from looking like the thief.
>>3566479I think the contractor's place is at the docks and that's why Yuu mentioned it. She traced the gold we sold to the contractor. Now we need to get it out of her safe.
>>3566453>>3566479This is more of a long term plan, but what about framing Mr. Travis for the gold heist. The guy is a total bastard and his financial situation gives him a motive. it wouldn’t be too hard to make it look like he hired silver to do it. He just lost his company before he could move the gold. Just an idea for later.
>>3566511That's pretty good.I was working under the idea that the contractor's shipment container, or whatever the space is "was obtained legally" but mislabeled.Without reasonable suspicion they can't just legally pop it without a warrant right?Which gives us time to have the Contractor and us both appear and warn them off (under the pretense of being law abiding citizens), move the gold before they come back with legal standing either by a warrant or the Port Authority, and perhaps with the contractor and Ai-chan's help swap the gold with some mechanical parts from another container. Or anyone's really, for a time.In effect playing a shell game with the gold.To not only protect our stash, but provide grounds to file for harassment and the like, "prove our innocence" if it's the Port Authority or dock owner, effectively harming the girls' credibility if they try to continue investigating the contractor's dock setup.And, it serves as a lesson to Hifumi, for Magical Girl stuff or villainy.Might even get the Contractor better rates if we can pull a "taking my business elsewhere" and fake putting her in a bind because of it. I mean if she's "losing business" because the owner's okay with self proclaimed "heroes" invading privacy and breaking the law?Not a good look as a business owner.Let alone how much business from the mining company might be lost by chasing us off.
>>3566470"Contractor, do you have any security we should know about?""Cameras and that safe. That's it.""Right.....Hifumi did the other girls see Ai-chan?""No, I was testing if I could make Ai-chan cloaked. Then I realized that I could. I don't know if I can do the same as humans though.Alright, then were going to.....>Hifumi and Ai-chan will sneak to the safe while Quentin and Contractor is going to distract them>Use my robots to cause a giant ruckus outside>Distract them by flipping out and drive them off while Hifumi and contractor gets the gold>Do you worst.....Framing Mr. Travis>Something else
>>3568175>Use my robots to cause a giant ruckus outside.If we can leave behind some evidence or something. >Don’t say anything but: do you worst.....Framing Mr. Travis
>>3568175>Do you worst.....Framing Mr. Travis>Hifumi and Ai-chan will sneak to the safe while Quentin and Contractor is going to distract themCan we do both?
>>3568206Sure you can. As long as it doesn't contradicts their actions like>A will save B>A will fight C
>>3568175>Do you worst.....Framing Mr. Travis
>>3568415"Gonna use my robots to cause a giant ruckus outside. Hifumi with the help of Ai-chan will sneak to the gold while me and contractor will distract them. ""Alright....do your worst Silvers. And oh, will you set them down here near this area. I have a rival who is very annoying these past few days.""It will be done...."You made some calls to your robot where it will wreck havoc on contractor's rival while you and her go inside talking business."And so we are....HEY WHO ARE YOU TWO?""Oh? Well we are investigating something here.""Investigating? Do you have some kind of warrant?""We do not buuuuuut.""Yuu, I sense something.""What?""Smells like us nearby.""HEY WHAT ARE YOU TWO TALKING ABOUT?""Oh no uhm.....how about we just snoop around, you can watch us do stuff and we will get out. And then you'll never hear from us again.">You know that you broke in on a private property right? That is tresspassing. Also you could have another motive.....like theft.>Give me one reason on how I shouldn't call the police right now.>Something else (write-in)>Hifumi position currently at the safe. She forgot to ask what is the code of the safe.
>>3568438>You know that you broke in on a private property right? That is tresspassing. Also you could have another motive.....like theft.>Explain to me why I shouldn't call the cops righ....Did you just hear that explosion?!
>>3568438>You know that you broke in on a private property right? That is tresspassing. Also you could have another motive.....like theft.>Give me one reason on how I shouldn't call the police right now
>>3568514>>3568563"Give me one reason on how shouldn't call the police right now.""Alright.....We are investigating something. A stolen gold.""A stolen one?" You asked."Eeep!" The contractor squealed."Are you alright?" You asked"Something brushed under me"Then something pokes you in the ear."Sorry, Master Hifumi told me what is the safe code."The two girls look at each other confusingly."Aaaanyway~ yeah, sorry about it but my....uh.....tracking sense led me here.""You know that you broke in on a private property right? That is tresspassing. Also you could have another motive.....like theft.""Oh no, if we attempted a theft then we would have brought everything including safe.""Did you just admit it?" You press it."Oh no! Not that uh....Uuuuuuu. Wait is that an explosion?""Huh what explosion?"Then a large explosion is ringing out."EVERYONE GET OUT!!"Immediately, the four of you get out of the warehouse. Numerous police, firetrucks and some paramedics rushed from the scene. Your robot is nowhere to be found but it still doing a series of explosions."What happened?""I dunno. Must be some hooligans thinking an arson is fun." Contractor shrugged."Anyway, you shouldn't snooping around the place and.....""Yuu, the gold moved."That must be Hifumi moving out. You may need to distract them more.>Wait is that one of your warehouse contractor? We may need the help of these girls.>Go rant like an american dad on how snooping is bad and kids should not poke their nose in where it shouldn't belong.>Something else (Write-in)
>>3568594>Wait is that one of your warehouse contractor? We may need the help of these girls
>>3568594>Wait is that one of your warehouse contractor? We may need the help of these girls.>If you girls really are investigators can you help us? If that fire keeps spreading it might hit something really flammable.
>>3568606>>3568617"Wait is that one of your warehouse?"Thankfully she caught on what you meant to do."Holy shit my fucking wares."You then face on two girls."While I'm having to speak on this, can you help us? Maybe this could help to your investigation."The girl sighs...."Alright, let's go."..............It took three hours to put the fire out and one of the contractor warehouse was burnt. You didn't mean to do that but she shrugged it by the pretense of getting various compensation through various insurance companies."Thanks for helping us there.""It's alright. It's what we do.""I believe we haven't introduced ourselves. You name is?""I'm Yuu this is Rei.""About what you did.""Alright alright I get it. No snooping.""No I was curious, what do you mean about that?""Sorry, confidential and all.""I think that is beyond confidential on what you said since we already knew what you are looking for.""Ah....yeah it's the missing gold alright.""Oh that.....I saw it on the news. Made all investors in the city pulled out and the economy almost crashed here.""Yeah we're........huh?""What's the matter?""It's gone.""What gone?""Sorry but we need to go.""Hey wai-"Immediately the two girls disappear into the dark. At least you distracted them enough. You go back to your house after saying goodbye to the contractor and go to sleep.Tomorrow is Wednesdayday what will you do?>To do list- Finish building your dream mecha robot to show the world your genius idea. Progress 58%- Kids are learning how to work together. In little time, they are going to be a competent group of girls.- Destructor is your future wife fiancee, find a way to make her stop villainy/take her out.- Your Base is secured but you can make it MORE secure.- Plan something to save your school- Plan for your future wife in progress- Deposits of iron mine are being extracted every tomorrow- Another batch of irom mine are ready to be transported (Currently you have 20 units of iron ingot stacked at your company warehouse)- The titanium mine is now started mining.

>>3569056Morning:Have the robots make the usual lunches and two breakfasts.>Call Hifumi. Yuu and Rei know a magical girl was present last night so you need to work out an alibi. Hifumi followed professor, as she does sometimes, on a trip to Contractor's to buy cheap "grey" market parts for class (The school wasn't in the best shape financially and Otto has blown his life savings on research and inquiring the mining company. The materials are going to a good cause and the price is right so no one asks too many questions) A robot grabbed the gold and started blowing stuff up at the warehouse. Hifumi chased it but by the time she caught up the robot didn't have the gold and exploded.>Brainstorm how to move the rest of the gold while keeping the other magical girls chasing those two bars.>>3560563 has some of my ideas.>Head into class for your morning lesson. The girls have already learned about reusing old components what about some recycling: Reclaiming metals from scrap materials.We can propose the field trip to the Recycling center and we might be able to use this as a way to throw off our tail. (and some of the girls might find some cool retro-tech to play with)>Talk to the magical girls about scheduling a training/brainstorming tech session. Ask Saki about her dad and if he might be interested in going out on a blind date with someone (It would be a double date with another couple, so there's no pressure if things don't go well). Lunch:>See if Rina and Rika are busy and deliver the lunches.>Clear the Electronics recycling center trip with Rina and tell her about your double date idea.>Meet up with Rika and ask if she would like to go on a blind date with someone. It would be a double date with Rina and us coming along (so there's no pressure if things go bad.). Tell her not to sweat it and we would need to work out the details with the other party.>Talk to the school accountant about sponsoring the school and get her contact details to give to the mining company accountant.Afternoon:>Head in to the mining company.>Meet with the mining company to discuss the potential land deal with the city, getting permission for logging from the city for another revenue source, selling the iron, sponsoring the school, and using the titanium in our research (We have another company idea- Selling our robots but we need products first)Evening:>Open to dealing with the gold problem and the investigation or Training the magical girls.As I brought up before maybe we could get Yuu and Rei to help us train the magical girl group. Keeping your friends close and your enemies closer and all that.
>>3569056>>3569126To clarify where I am going with the lesson plan: We already taught the girls how to repair and modify an existing thing, along with microsoldering small logic boardsThe point of this unit is to sort trash from treasure. We go over the finer points of recycling. Then we take our field trip to the electronics recycling center. The girls then sort out what is good enough to fix up for a new use, What's scrap but reusable for a totally new purpose, and what is scrap that needs to be recycled.The girls in groups then take the usable scrap and the recyclable stuff and use them to make a robot for a task. (some sort of Scrapyard Wars type race or time trial.)
>"Hmmmmmm that's weird.">"What did you found?">"The gold we were chasing......is a jewelry?"The two of them are in front of a jewelry store looking at the closed sign. >"Did we tracked the wrong one?">"Maybe we should look again at the docks. I caught another trail.">"Where?">"Out of this city possibly out of country, or in another city.">"Let's go where the closest shall we?">"Then the closest one is..........back in our town?'>"Isn't that convenient? We can ask Mari for help.">"Let's go back then.....I hope Mari won't torture them though. She has those kind of these days."And so the two of them got ready to go home......in search of the missing gold.
>>3569389That's kind of weird. Hifumi either had a good idea or I'm as lost as the girls. I'm curious what Junko will say when she finds out Yuu found another group of magical girls that are at least friendly. Considering how much finding magic users was an ordeal in MGR
>>3569429I hope she isn't going to kidnap and mindbreak our girls.
>>3569442 When we were playing her, Junko didn’t go after or mindbreak innocent people. Our girls are clearly trying to help but no one really taught them how. They didn’t hurt Yuu or Rei either. Honestly I think Junko would be more interested in trying to keep the organization from getting to a bunch of green girls.
May not post today. Have to go travel with my boss. Will update next day.
>>3570021Thanks for letting us know Corruptor!
>>3570021No problem QM. I wound up fast asleep as soon as I got home anyway.
>>3569126Morning comes and you get up to do your daily ritual. Order the robot to make some boxed lunches, and make you a hot black coffee. Turning the newspaper on, the headlines was an arson. Apparently according to the investigation, the culprit was caught now photographed who has a mohawk as his hairstyle and several piercings. The report said."I can't believe he burned down my warehouse because I fired him due to his negligence and stealing. I hope he rots in jail." Said a woman who is too furious. Must be his rival and made him immediately a culprit. She works fast.>Thanks to you, the contractor is ever grateful. You only torched his area, burned down his smuggles and money, apprehended him, getting all the insurance firm to pay her for "arson" and taking him out of the area. She has now the monopoly of the shipments all around the city. She will offer discounts whenever you visit her when buying things................You are in your class and everyone payed attention. You talk about various electrical mechanisms in the board circuitry and how to look if it works or not. Then you called for them to go outside. Calling a school bus, the rest of the class goes to the nearest electronic recycle plant. Which is the scrapyard."Okay everyone, now there are various electronics that are lying around. Go find some usable ones and make out of it."You break them into four groups. Team Hifumi, Team Saki, Team Caroline and Team Marisa. All of them are at group of 5. You watch them as they start to sort out any usable garbage around.>Roll4d100 on what they found.Just arrived 5 hours ago but i was tired from travelling so i slept for a little bit. But that 1 hour nap became a 4 hour sleep. Oh well.....
Rolled 2, 57, 90, 27 = 176 (4d100)>>3572244
Rolled 25, 16, 84, 39 = 164 (4d100)>>3572244It's cool
Rolled 56, 11, 35, 99 = 201 (4d100)>>3572244
>>3572253>>3572256>>3572263Team Hifumi got 56. Must be bad luckTeam Saki got 57. Not really that muchTeam Caroline got 90. Caroline must have an eye for this....or just plain lucky.But damn Marisa got 99. She must have found a perfectly working component.
>>3572270You all call them up and show what they got."Okay first up, team Hifumi. What do you got?""Just a couple of boards that needed to be replaced some parts.""What about you Team Saki?""Same with Hifumi. Couple of boards and working wires.""And Team Caroline?""We found uh....a working gearbox. I don't know why it ended here though.""Nice find. What about.....wait where is Marisa?""PROFESSOR LOOK! I FOUND A PERFECTLY WORKING ENGINE OF A 10 Wheeler Truck!"Wait what? You decided to go with Marisa and yes, a 10 wheeler truck is there perfectly camouflaged by the mountain of Televisions and some scrap metals."How did it ended up here?"Marisa shrugged. Still what should you do with this?>Give the 10 wheeler truck to her? She found it so she earned it.>You'll take it in the custody for now. And keep it yourself. If you convert it to components it will help build your mecha a little more. (You will get 20 units of components if disassembled and remake into parts for your mecha)>Something else (Write-in)
>>3572294>Something else:>Check with staff to see if Marisa can have the truck. There must be some sort of mistake. >If she can have it, time to set some ground rules. We will take custody of it, but she can use it for the project. No joy rides, hurting other students, property damage, ect.>Furthermore this is a robotics lesson, so unless she plans on building Optimus Prime, the truck is for parts not the start and end of her project. >We will take any leftover scrap at the end of the project for our purposes. (For future classes or our work)
>>3572294Also, thinking about it>Call Rina and ask where you could put the truck at school or if we have to break it down.>>3569126For the afternoon segment. I forgot to put in ask Caroline to show up for the meeting (or maybe the rest of the girls if we are training later). I forgot the whole have her observe us conducting business, so Caroline will be a good business partner later thing. We might have to ask the girls to step out when discussing the titanium or start off with it before they arrive, although starting a robotics company is a good cover and a reason for Hifumi to be there.
>>3572315You decided to call the administrator of the scrapyard and he replies."Well you can pick whatever what is in there given if you have capacity to take it out of the junkyard without the risk of hurting yourselves or the group. Any accident that may happen inside is not the responsibility of the officials of the junkyard."It feels like they didn't care at all. So you called Rina next."Hello Rina, do you have any kind of hauling vehicle?""I don't think so Quentin. Why?""One of my students found a 10 wheeler in perfect condition and...""WAIT WHAT?""That's my expression too at first, so do you know anything?""No sorry but I can give you some list who has a capability to haul one.""Alright send it to me."A message pops up and you opened it with different name of services.>Okada hauling and moving enterprises. We move anything and everything!>TransPacific Industries. Specialized in heavy lifting (your company)>Scarlet Girls and co.
>>3572475>Scarlet Girls and co.? Meaning Saki just carries it out or what?
>>3572481Yep something like that.
>>3572475>Combining TransPacific Industries and Scarlett girls. To explain this:>Call up the head of the motorpool at Transpacific and see if he has a flatbed that would fit the truck and would like a chance to get out of the office.>Also if he has any questions or input we will be in the office today or he could tell us informally now.>Have Saki, Caroline, and Hifumi(if she brought her exoskeleton, (if not she can help us distract the class) load the truck.>We distract the rest of the class with lesson stuff/load them back on the bus.>After class, the girls unload the truck. This gives us a chance to talk to them training, asking Saki about her dad, Caroline about joining us for the meeting and her life/dad, and Hifumi about her new exoskeleton (any input or kinks we have to work out we might want to mass produce these later).>Make sure to write excuse notes for the girls other classes if they have more after the field trip.It's the best of both worlds. We have the minimum cost by using our gear. We aren't taking a bunch of workers off the job. The girls get a chance to work together. Hifumi gets to try out her new toy.Unrelated, I think we might want to make more of the skeletons for our refinery workers and miners and have them along with the personal assistant bots as the first products for our robotics company. It would also be a good excuse why we need titanium from the company specifically.
>>3572522>>3572475this seems like a good plan
>>3572522"You decided to call the head of the motor pool. After 3 rings, a woman's voice answered the call.""Hello TransPacific Industries how can I help you?""Hello this is your boss, do we have a flatbed that can carry a 10 wheeler truck?""Of course we have. I mean, how can we move those bunch of heavy equipment to the mining site.""Right, come here with the vehicle.""Do you need a magnetizer for the truck?""No need.""Alright, give me the address and I'll be there in a jiffy."You told her to get a pen and paper and give her the address with additional direction in case. After that you ended the call. Then you called all the students.""Alright, we'll bring the truck to the school and see if this one is still running. Now I should call the Scarlet Girls....they carry heavy stuff right?"On cue, Hifumi disappears, Saki excuses herself while Caroline decided to check on the gearbox. Calling them you....."Hello Good Sir! Did you say help?"Everyone in the class immediately ganged up on the girls asking photograph, pictures and shaking hands."Hey! Hey! Don't bother them. They are going to work so stand back."The truck arrived and you hear the same voice who answered on the phone."Hey boss I brought you the- AAAAAAAAAA IT'S THE SCARLET GIRLS OMGOMG WHERE IS MY PHONE!"This is going to be a long morning..............Eventually, the truck is loaded and is en route to the school, you dismissed the class for them to have lunch."Damn that was heavy." Saki streched and hear some bones popping too loud. Caroline did the same."Well at least we have something to work on. Also, what is that Hifumi?""Oh..an exoskeleton. Helps me carry some heavy things and give me good stability. Makes me more faster and powerful but only a little bit. Not that it holds a candle to you two.""Hey at least it helps right? And that is what matters." Saki nods to herself."Alright, come on let's go eat.""Yaaaaaaay.".....................You didn't plan to eat with the girls but at least, you glimmer some info about Saki's dad.>Widowed after Saki's mother died from birth post natal. The child is fine but the mother didn't survived.>Been raising them for 10 years. Saki was 7 at the time her mother died.>Has 3 more siblings all female.>Second is 14, third is 12 and youngest is 10.>Decided not to remarry again because she loved her wife so much. Also didn't have time to go on any blind dates due to busy juggling works to make meets end despite their daughter having a sponsor. (Guess where the money goes from).You didn't realize that you are already standing at Rina's office. Going inside is a stack of papers that is covering her face and table."What's this?""Oh, some legal documentation about something if the school doesn't float yada yada government will take it yada yada, then sell it to the highest bidder. Sometimes I wonder why. I have to stop Rika to not burn the city hall OR the papers in here. So I'm reading this.(1/2)
>>3574914Forgot to upload this engineer who answered Quentin's call.
>>3574914"Anyway do you need something?""Yes, did you have lunch yet?"At the mention of lunch, Rina's stomach gurgles. Her face goes to different colors of red."I-i would like to...... please."The two of you spend a sweet lunch together...................You go back to the mining company accounting office and gave you a report.>Sir we have at least 17 units of money that was allocated from various resources particularly from the trust fund that was frozen at the bank and got it back due to the new company and the sales increased.>Although the bank offered to add another 23 units of money for loan with 2.5% interest if you are interested.You think of your decision. In the end you......>Take the 17 units of money to buy some plot of land.>Take advantage of the loan and get a head start in buying properties.>Something else (write-in)
>>3574932>Take the 17 units of money to buy some plot of land. See if the company can negotiate a land deal with the city to bring the price down. Let’s try to keep everything as debt free as possible. Who knows if Saki will have an off day and wreck the town. >Something else:>Has the iron ingots sold yet. Can we have access to some of the titanium?>We are working on putting a robotics company together. We are going to need a trustworthy attorney to submit some patents. >Any input or needs from the employees. We might have some new gear for some of them coming soon(exoskeletons)>Talk to the city about logging permits. It’s not as profitable as mining but we do have furloughed workers to rehire and it might be a bit before construction starts.
>>3574932>The Trust Fund was just the initial investment from Travis into the school right?Let's just give it back to the school if that's the case.
>>3574932>trust fund that was frozen at the bankWait I missed this. Was this trust fund for Caroline that we started or something else?>>3576169I don’t think Travis or Otto sponsored the school, yet. That reminds me I forgot to bring it up in my vote. >>3574932>>3574964Forgot to mention. >Bring up sponsoring Rina’s school to the accountant. We might be able to write it off as a tax break and it’s a good source of positive PR.
>>3574932>Take the 17 units of money to buy some plot of land.
In Junko's cityYou are filing some paperwork for your upcoming plans when you receive a call on your phone.>"Hello are you Miss Mitsukoshi's friend?">"Yes that's me, how can I help you?">"Your friend is caught illegally pakour all over town that several people complain with the description of her face. Can you-">"Don't listen to him, he is protecting the criminal we chased. I...">"Sorry about that, will you come to the station so we can talk about it?">"Can you give me the phone to my friend please.">"One sec......your friend call. I'll put it in your ear since you are handcuffed.">"Hello? Can you hear me?">Yuu, who did you bring?">"Uhmm... Marie and Rei. Marie is already seething right now. I think she would probably split him half.">*Sigh* "My work doesn't give me the break huh..... alright, I'll be there."You ended the call and get your jacket. You wonder if you gonna call the head of police to lay off this man."Nah, it isn't worth it. At least I'm going to hear him out."run will resume in 14 hours. Also I blame Tetris 99 for eating most of my time.
>>3574964>>3576169>>3576169>>3576243>>3576189"Can you look for something to give us a tax break? I know some companies do it.""Of course, most companies would pick some government project in exchange from a few months up to years of tax break depending on the projects we can procure. Of course I'll look into it.""Okay, I'll take the 17 units. Better to not have any loans.""Understood/""While you're at it, go to the assessor office and see if you can pull a discount. We going to take the market while it's still early.""I like that....aggressively taking the local market. Alright boss, I'll go back to work."You go to the refinery and talk to the head engineer."How are the Iron Ingots?""Completely fine sir. Some local construction companies are buying our iron but not in bulk. They are trying to see if the iron we mine are up to standard.""And our Iron is up to standard right?""Of course we are, although I'm afraid if Mr. Travis mixed something on the mineral itself. He likes to cut cost to lower the quality to maximize the production while it suffered from the quality. But I'm trying to eliminate those and produce best iron here Sir.""How about our Titanium?""Currently in cooling chamber sir. Why?""We may need to use it.""Well they are expensive alright so I make sure that they of highest quality.">Titanium iron is available (10 units. If used as a consturction material for robot will give 20% to the overall progress of the mecha)The head engineer talk about other things and then he thanks you for visiting the refinery. He returned to work while you call Rina for advice."Hello Rina?""This is not Rina speaking, she is currently busy with......papers.""Oh Rika! How is you day been?""Boring.......Can you take me somewhere else that doesn't involve a headache?""Well I was gonna ask if you know any attorney that we could trusts so......""WHAT A COINCIDENCE QUENTIN!" You pull out your ear from the sudden shout of Rika."Because I am a licensed attorney!"The line is silent."No offence Rika but you don't look like one.""Well intimidation is part of being an attorney so.....""Are you sure that you are an attorney?""Hey that hurt! I am......maybe I got suspended for exuding too much intimidation that the defense got PTSD from my actions.""..............""I can't take any court case for now but that doesn't mean I'm not doing any papwerworks........no matter how I dreaded them for."You sigh to yourself. "Alright, I'll think about it.""Thank Quentin, will you visit later?""Maybe, I'm kinda busy as it is.""Alright, I won't bother you now. See you later cutiepie."The call ended and you decide to get some logging permits. If you are planning to buy some land then you might start looking for place to clear, clean and build from.(1/2)
>>3580029................................It honestly took minutes to process your papers for a permit. Although they said that you need to go back tomorrow considering you got your permit late in afternoon, You decided to go home."Welcome home Master."You look for the source of voice until an itchy feeling was felt in you feet."How rude, I'm down here booooooooo"Her punches flailed wildly at you trying to hurt you. Honestly, its kinda cute."Oh Professor! Welcome back!""Hifumi? What are you doing here?""Uhm.......cooking?"Going to the kitchen is.....a smell something that you cannot describe."You see, I want to learn how to cook but since I barely have any utensils in my house, I decided to try and cook for you professor."You look at your cooking bot and......>So how many times the house got almost burnt?>Hifumi, while you have your best interest in your heart and in the right place, please leave the cooking to my robot>Something else (write-in)
>>3580032There's not an option for this but:>Titanium iron is available (10 units. If used as a consturction material for robot will give 20% to the overall progress of the mecha)>Use the titanium for the mecha>Something else:>Put on the dad concern face. "How did it go?">Offer to let her watch the robot and you work for some impromptu cooking lessons.
>>3580032>>3580083Adding on:>Tell Hifumi regardless of how the cooking went, it’s a skill that takes practice and you rarely get a new dish just right the first time. Encourage her.
>>3580083>Titanium mine is now enroute to your base delivered by your robots."How did it go?""Uhm....."The robot speaks. "Hifumi almost burned the house down by si-""P-please don't say that!"You fake a cough and smiled. "Well, you could watch the robot first. I think the robot can give you some tutorial on how to do it. Although some parts are....."You are both looking at the cooking robot who is chopping very fast with a perfect shape and thin cucumber."Some would probably need more time to get used to."Hifumi shoulders starts to sag. You tried to cheer her up at least a little bit."W-well at least I'm glad you are picking up cooking. This takes practice, patience and perservation. No one can be a chef in one dish and in their first time. Anyway what makes you do that by the way?""Uhm....I wanna be a housewife?""..........."The conversation turned into an awkward turn........................One dinner later and you brought up the training again."So are you girls available now? We gonna try that exosuit of your and see if you can be a viable part in helping Saki and Caroline.""I'll call them then, let's go to the forest area." Hifumi starts to dial her friends numbers..........................A trip later and the girls are now here. Thinking to yourself, this is to showcase Hifumi to help Saki and Caroline. But how?>Try to spar Hifumi with Saki and Caroline>Try to train their powers because last time, it's their power the reason the city destroys itself>Something else (write-in)
>>3580107>Start off with teamwork. While Saki and Caroline are working better together, the other girls need to get use to working with Hifumi and her robots.Then when the girls are working together:>Try to train their powers because last time, it's their power the reason the city destroys itself
>>3580126>>3580162"So Hifumi, how about you show your new toys?"Hifumi nods and she uncloaked the exoskeleton that you made. Then suddenly Ai-chan appears."I'm Ai-chan and I'm here to assist!" Ai-chan poses like you see on some sentai shows. Then Ai-chan looks at Hifumi."Master you should pose too, I got the fireworks ready too.""Huh? Do we need to?""Of course this is important.""O-okay."Both of them hide behind the tree and suddenly a speaker beside you plays. When did it brought here?"T-the justice is here to save.""And we will save the people from evil.""I'm Scarlet Hifumi......(why I am doing this again?)""(stop muttering master!)I'm Ai-chan and I'm here to assist."Both of them pose and some firecrackers blows behind them ending the music. Saki claps and Caroline......is hiding her mouth probably giggling. You can only shake your head.......................Alright. Now I know that Saki and Caroline is working together although it need some work, you need to also work with Hifumi. So what can you do Hifumi?"I'll give you this to the both of you. Please attach it to your ears."Hifumi gives them an earpiece. Then she tries to test it."Okay can you hear me?"The two of them wince. Hifumi apologize again that makes them wince again. Ai-chan turn off the mic and Hifumi apologize again. After too many apologies, they can now hear Hifumi's voice in a reasonable volume."Alright, with this device, we can coordinate better. The earpiece also has microphone so if you want to speak with me, please press your ear lightly and speak."Hello?" Saki tries to test it. And it's Hifumi turn to wince.....hard."Before it devolved into another apologizing spree you clap your hands. "Okay, now that is done, lets do a mock up battle. Hifumi will tell you what she can discern based on the enemy so you better coordinate. Now......>What kind of group training you want to do.>Search the robotic rabbit and destroy it. Warning, it's very fast and you need group coordination to take it down.>A pack or robotic wolves are guarding something. Retrieve it and destroy the bots>A "mini fortress" was seen on the top of the hill. Destroy or make it unoperational to lessen the damage. (not that you want to project and simulate you dream mecha here by the way....nooooooo sir.)
>>3580346>A pack or robotic wolves are guarding something. Retrieve it and destroy the bots>A much larger boss wolf has the object (simulating a monster attack).>Project an urban setting. There are some civilians in the open to avoid, but many more that can be hurt by unintential collateral damage.The mecha option is tempting but we might want to save it for when the girls are more experienced. We can get more out of it that way.
>>3580346>A "mini fortress" was seen on the top of the hill. Destroy or make it unoperational to lessen the damage. (not that you want to project and simulate you dream mecha here by the way....nooooooo sir.)
>>3580385>>3580467>>3580633"I made a pack of dangerous wolves that are guarding something. It's a very important one. Retrieve it and destroy the enemies""Well that was easy....."Saki declares."Go!" You shout.>Roll3d20 for their teamwork
Rolled 2, 20, 3 = 25 (3d20)>>3582158
Rolled 16, 15, 7 = 38 (3d20)>>3582158
Rolled 7, 15, 10 = 32 (3d20)>>3582158
>>3582222>>3582246>16,20,7>Scarlet Girls POVThe three of them moves out and Hifumi tries to scan the area. "This is hard, the forest is to thick to look out for enemies. Maybe I need to change the radar type.""Hifumi, this isn't the time for thinking about your gadgets. If professor said that the item was important it would be best if we could find them before they could do anything on it?" Caroline speaks."I know but knowing where the enemy is gives us the advantage. And......""Contact, 10 o'clock!" Caroline points out the beast who are walking slowly. Saki and Caroline bolted immediately into action while Hifumi got left behind. Saki gave the opening punch of the beast and it got thrown to the other robotic wolves. The eyes of the wolves became red and start to attack the girls. Caroline immediately gets out of the way while Saki is fighting two wolves at the same time. Hifumi who is just caught up panting a little bit."This......this forest is to think i feel like im fighting on the muuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUD."Her leg was dragged by the tail of the wolf and throwed at Saki. Good thing she caught her harmlessly."Woah there! Let's take it easy shall we? So what are your new toys?""Well, let's subdue them one by one.""Okay! I'll be the bait while you do your thing."Saki lauched herself into the air and tried to deliver a punch along with the gravity but what she didn't account that the wolf has a gun in his mouth."WAIT THIS ISN'T HOW IT SUPPOSED TO BEEEEE!!"But in a daring effort to save Saki, Hifumi launched a rope with ball weights at the end of each rope closing the mouth of the wolf and exploded his face. Saki shifts her body to target the other wolf and slammed her fist the last target. Both of them give a sigh of relief."Nice one Hifumi.""T-thanks.""Now where is Caroline."The two of them look for Caroline with nowhere in sight. Then a slight sounds of bush was heard in their backs. Both of them goes in battle stance until.."WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!! COME ON BOY! RUN FASTER!!""ARF ARF!!"Both of them have their mouths open in shock. What happened?...........................>Quentin's POVYou are starting to get worried now. It's already 9pm and sooner or later it will be their bed time. You wonder if you made the test harder? No, no this is to train them. Not babysit them. Then you hear a rustle of sounds from the nearby bush. Then suddenly a big wolf with the three scarlet girls riding them giggling like a bunch of school girls.Well they are a bunch of school girls alright."Professor look can I keep him? He is such a sweet little wolf. Now who is the good little boy? Yes you are. Yes you are."The wolf robot now acts very docile to Caroline who is already rolling around the ground. You look at the two other girls and they just shrugged.>Uhm.....good job everyone>I....Yeah you deserve that wolf Caroline>Where is the object you supposed to retrieve?>Something else
>>3582288>If you are responsible with it, you can obviously keep it, Caroline. I might have to change a few settings around and modify the weapons a bit, first.>However back to the topic of the exercise, did you girls retrieve the object?
>>3582288>I....Yeah you deserve that wolf Caroline>Where is the object you supposed to retrieve?
>>3582298>>3582338"If you are responsible with it, you can obviously keep it, Caroline. I might have to change a few settings around and modify the weapons a bit, first. However back to the topic of the exercise, did you girls retrieve the object?"The three look of them at each other. Then the gaze turn to Caroline."About that......">Caroline POVYou noticed a glint in the other side of the bush and you rushed on where you last seen that glint. Then you notice that glint was guarded by a big wolf. You run a few meters to have a running start and then you start to run. Jumping you extend you feet to give the flying kick on its face. The strike came true and the wolf skids a few meters bringing a few dried leaves and stopping on a tree and knocking a dried branch covering him with big branches and leaves. You retrieve a golden ball. It's just a cheap plastic that has a golden shine on it. When you try to leave. The wolf immediately pounces on Caroline making her shriek. Pinning her body, she can't move an inch with a menacing robotic face. Then suddenly it barks. If this robotic wolf has a tongue, he would drool at her face right now."Uhm.....good boy?"The wolf barks again. The wolf lets her go, nudges the golden ball and presents it to Caroline."Uhmm.....catch?"The wolf barks again. Caroline tosses the ball and the wolf runs and returns the ball. At the third time when she tosses the ball, the wolf jumped and catches it mid-air. But with the metallic mouth and well....the jaw strength. The ball breaks into little pieces. The wolf whimpers."Uhm.....that's okay. How about we get out of here?""The wolf barks again and he hunkers down and barks again. Caroline, unsure of what he meant. The wolf tail points at his body and Caroline got what he meant. He rides the wolf and the wolf gives a howling cry and runs to where Saki and Hifumi is.".............................."And that is the story on how I got him. I even named him Fluffles.""Fluffles? no no that is a bad name." Saki complained."HEY! IT'S A CUTE NAME!"The two of them bicker at one another. Hifumi is busy doing maintenance on Ai-chan and the wolf is curling near Caroline.>Anything you want to say before you go to sleep and proceed for tomorrow?
>>3582394>Well I guess that went as well as I could have expected...>So Saki, I heard you had a robot idea. I don't want you getting left out. What is it?>Hifumi, feeling a little more confident in combat? How did you think the exercise went? You should try to stop by tomorrow and upgrade the other robot I gave you in class to be more like Ai-chan.when your both alone>Hifumi, what did you do yesterday at the docks? The other girls knew a magical girl was nearby, so we need an alibi for why you where there: LIke you followed me and wound up capturing helping the police capture the suspect.
>>3582394>>3582423>Also when talking to Saki, ask about her dad and the whole blind date idea. might be a good time to bring it up.
>>3582394>"I don't think I programmed any of that."
>>3582483It's the beginning of a runaway AI. Next thing you know, it starts producing staples and then the world is doomed.
>>3582483>>3582495Next thing you know the professor finishes his mech only to find out it never wanted to fight. 01001001 00100000 01110111 01100001 01101110 01110100 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01100010 01100101 00100000 01100001 00100000 01101100 01110101 01101101 01100010 01100101 01110010 01101010 01100001 01100011 01101011
>>3582586>FightPlease it's clearly a personal defense system.
>>3582423>>3582394>Hifumi AlibiClearly she was just invisible and ran off after the arson happened to help with that.That's why the cops didn't interact with her.
>>3582495We could always tune out its programming to just want headpats and icecream, or something like that.
>>3582423>>3582429>>3582483"Well I guess that went as well as I could have expected....""The wolf part?" Hifumi asked."No, no, rather the outcome of your mission. You still failed."The three of them visibly sags their shoulder."But this is another lesson to learn. You might get swept by the circumstances but you need to remind yourself or your teammate to focus on the mission. Distraction may prove fatal to the battlefield. Although I don't think I programmed any of that doglike abilities. I wonder where did I go wrong..."You start to pace yourself back and forth until Saki yawns."Welp, I think that's it for me.""Me too, I'm tired from jumping and running too much." Caroline stretches her body."Me too. I need to program another type of radar. This mock bottle proves that not everything I had with Ai-chan is in here.""Sorry Master, I didn't help you that much.""Alright, see you tomorrow."As you gone home, your robot gives you a ping of the progress of your mecha>Mecha progress completion - 65%You also have another message from Rina.>Tomorrow is Parents and Teachers Association Meeting. Since you are not any kind of Homeroom teacher, you may need to go on the auxilliary room where various teachers will be there. From P.E. to Club advisors and any extracurricular activity faculty will be there. So I expect you to be there. And yeah the nature of the meeting would the the school festival so if you have idea please forward it to Rika for evaluation.>-RinaYou dismiss the message and you flop down to your bed tired from the day activities. >Tomorrow is Thursday. Morning will be locked for PTA meetings and afternoon could possibly be your class meeting but hey! Your schedule is flexible anyway.
>>3584814Been staring at this for awhile trying to come up with something.Morning:>Wake up early and brainstorm what to do with our gold.>Have a robot make the usual lunches. Just in case. Dress well. Otto doesn't want to look like a slouch today.>Leave the house early and see if we can pick up a bouquet of flowers for Rina (or some other little gift for Rina).>Head in to the meeting.Lunch:>See if Rina or Rika are free. (They probably aren't) This time could be free for some tinkering or dealing with the gold.Afternoon:>Class meetingEvening:>This is supposed to be the school festival, might as well accompany Rina and have a good time. (sort of date?)Rika is organizing it so she is busy right?
>>3584814>>3584950>Something I forgot in the other vote. See if we can maybe scout out Saki's father and Hifumi's parents (if they even show up) I don't know if this goes in the Morning or Afternoon segment.This could be our chance to meet them and maybe get to know Saki's father.>Also If Hifumi and Caroline's parents don't show up eat lunch with them. It might be sad for them to be alone. (although we would need to avoid Mr. Travis like the plague)
>>3584950School Festival is not tonight. Although yeah, Rika and Rina would be busy.
>>3585161I’ll try to come up with something different after I get back from my run.
>>3584814Disregard the earlier vote in: >>3584950Morning:>Wake up early and dress well today. Don't want to look like a slouch in front of the parents or embarrass Rina.>Have the robots make five lunches just in case (Rina, Rika, Otto, and two for Hifumi and Caroline)>Contact Hifumi and see if her parents are going to show up for the homeroom and class meetings. If they aren't we would love to stand in at her homeroom meeting. Have her get us in touch with Caroline and offer the same thing. (Since Caroline's mom ran off and Travis is unwell.) They could also assist us at our class meeting if they would like.>Leave the house early and see if we can pick up a bouquet of flowers for Rina (or some other little gift) to remind her not to totally stress out.>Bring up to Rina that two of your students might not have their parents present and you would like to be their stand in at their homeroom meeting. We might need to leave the auxiliary room early or have their time-slot moved into lunch. >We have a booth idea for Rika. Have our cooking bots make robot inspired dishes. Theme the booth in a 50's Atomic Era style (think Pre-Great War Fallout). The girls could serve the food and we could have some dressed up like robots and kaiju as booth mascots. It should be a pretty easy booth and we could help with supplies. Also, ask Rika about corporate sponsorship for the festival.>Head off to the auxiliary room. See what staff are around. Anyone interesting? If the accountant is there we could ask more about long term sponsorship for the school.Lunch:>Stand in for Caroline and Hifumi's parents at their homeroom meeting. (if necessary) >Drop off lunch for Rina and Rika>Eat lunch with Hifumi and Caroline. Try to cheer them up if seeing all the parents around bothers them.Afternoon:>Class meeting: Give a speech about the usefulness of robots and a practical demonstration. Otto builds a robot live for the parents and demonstrates it doing basic tasks.>See if Saki's Father is there we would want to get to know him better. (the same goes if Hifumi's parents actually show up)Evening:>Finally get around to getting the fake paperwork and laundering the gold, if alone.>Make some more exoskeletons for the mining company and work on Hifumi's other robot (the one we gave her in class) if she shows up.
>>3585334This is pretty good, supporting.>>3584814
Saw your twitter. Feeling any better QM?
Will make a new thread this sunday
>>3589201See you in the new thread. Thanks for running.
