In a time of global crisis, an elite international task force known as Overwatch was formed. Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities: together, they ended the Omnic Crisis and restored peace to a war-torn world. The heroes of Overwatch kept peace for a generation, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. After many years, Overwatch became troubled, and finally disbanded. Now world conflict is rising again. Overwatch may be gone…but the world still needs heroes. You are Bandit, an adventurer, treasure hunter, freedom fighter, and international criminal. A few days ago, you encountered the reformed Overwatch: a grand title for two ex-agents, Winston and Tracer, operating as outlaws out of an abandoned Watchpoint. Despite their down-and-own-status, or perhaps because of it, you were inspired to join them. You left your old life behind to become the first recruit of the new Overwatch.Now Tracer and you are taking the Aurora OSS-007 VTOL aircraft across Europe, "getting the band back together" as Tracer phrases it. You stopped by Zurich, Switzerland, and recruited Mercy by reminding her that she can do the most good for the world on the battlefield.Now the Aurora is en route to Eichenwalde, Germany, to search for a man described as the heart of Overwatch ...Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/954267/Updates: https://twitter.com/ravenkingquests
>>979751>cheers luv, the calvary's queer
It's not far from Switzerland to the Black Forest mountains, and the Aurora makes the journey easily. Tracer pilots the craft in low over the forest, and lands in a grassy field on the outskirts of the small town known as Eichenwalde."Here we are," says Tracer, punching in the aircraft's power-down sequence. "Athena said Reinhardt would be somewhere around here. And I have a feeling I know just where he'll be."The town is oddly silent as you approach through the field. You can hear birds singing in the nearby pine trees, the distant rumble of road traffic. "Do people actually live here?" you ask Tracer."Not anymore," she says. "This was the site of a great battle, back in the Crisis. A lot of these battlegrounds were never cleaned up properly."Your boot knocks into something with a metallic clang. You look down at what you'd thought was an oddly-shaped hill, and realize it's actually a disabled omnic soldier, overgrown with moss, grass, and flowers.You stop and look around, realizing just how many similar oddly-shaped hills you can see in the field around you. "All these Omnics ... what happened? They didn't talk about this one in the history books.""That was before my time," says Tracer. "And I never got the whole story out of Reinhardt. It was something he didn't like to talk about. I know some of his unit, the Crusaders, went up against a whole army of Bastion-model omnics. The Crusaders won, but ... they paid the price."The two of you enter the town. It's a quaint, charming German village, marred by overgrowth, broken Omnic soldiers, and the scars of war. You take a detour around a blast crater as you approach a two-story building with a sign reading "Brauerei Mittagskrug".As you get near the door, you can hear voices coming from inside. A man and a woman, arguing. It escalates to shouting. Something crashes inside.>Kick the door in.>Enter normally.>Wait and listen.
>>979775>enter normally No need for violence yet.
>>979775>>Enter normally.I hope we get a chance to pick up bastion while we are here.
You opt for the casual approach, pushing open the door and entering the brewery.Inside is a rustic German tavern, and the scene of an argument. A young woman in a ponytail and pink tank top is shouting fiercly up at a huge, muscular, white-haired man with a scar over his eye, who seems to be taking it in with patience. You aren't sure at first, since he's usually shown wearing his distinctive Crusader armor. But you think that the old man is--"Reinhardt!" says Tracer. "Am I glad to see you!""What is zis?" says the old man. "Lena? Can it really be you? Hah hah!" He stomps forward, knocking a heavy wooden chair out his way like a toy. He snatches up Tracer in his arms and gives her a giant bear hug."Woah now--urrk!!" Tracer's face starts to turn red. With a blur of blue energy and a whirring sound, she recalls out of Reinhardt's arms back to your side. "Hey now, remember you've got to watch it with those hugs, big guy!""Eh heh, sorry my dear. I was caught up in ze excitement. I haven't seen you in many years. Who is zis strapping young lad?" he asks, looking you up and down."This here is Bandit," says Tracer. "He's been helpin' me out.""It's an honor to meet you," you say, extending your hand. It's immediately crushed in Reinhardt's vice-like grip."An honor to meet you as well, Bandit! Any friend of Tracer's is a friend of mine. Please, sit," he says, waving to the tables. "We haven't yet found a working tap, but I will keep looking. Ah, the beer of Brauerei Mittagskrug was once famous in these parts ...""Aren't you forgetting something?" asks the woman. "I'm Brigitte, by the way. Nice to meet you.""Likewise," you say."Brigitte is my armorer," says Reinhardt. "She keeps the Crusader armor patched up, holding it together for one more battle. And she does the same for me as well.""You don't make it easy, old man," observes Brigitte. "But I do what I can.""You are a master of your craft, Brigitte, as I've said many times," says Reinhardt. "Now, my friends. What brings you to Eichenwald?">I could ask you the same thing.>Looking for you.>We're getting Overwatch back together.>Just seeing the sights.>Something else.
>>979892>Just stopping in on a hero
>>979892>>I could ask you the same thing.>>Looking for you.
>>979892>Looking for you.
>>979892>>Looking for you.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>979892>Looking for you.>We're getting Overwatch back together.Rolling to contain fanboying.
>>979932>Rolling to contain fanboying.enough with the fanboy shit its beyond annoying now
>>979892>I could ask you the same thing.But of we're being honest,>Looking for you.
>>979943Let's be honest, Bandit is a badass now, but at his core he's a giant nerd who still has his entire collection of Action Figures somewhere in storage in Toronto.
>>979907>>979910>>979919>>979932>>979987"Looking for you, actually," you say."For me?" asks Reinhardt. "Is there glory to be won?"Brigitte says, "You're from Overwatch, right, Tracer? I recognize you from the vids. don't suppose you tracked us down out here just to catch up with an old friend?"Tracer admits, "We did have something else in mind."Brigitte says, "You realize he's old, right? He'll be sixty-two soon. And the Crusader armor will break down permanently any day now. It's all I can do to keep it in working order, and who knows how long that will last? Anyway," she adds, turning away. "He can't help you, because he's already got a damn fool's errand he's set his mind on. No talking him out of it when he gets like this."Reinhardt's face has turned dark. "The omnics," he growls. "I must crush zem. Brigitte, where is my armor?""It's almost finished," she says. "I took a break to try and convince you once last time to back down from this, even though I knew it was futile. And then the Wonder Twins here showed up. So whenever they're done here, you can start your quest or whatever.">Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?>Maybe we can help.>You should back off and let him make his own decisions.>There's no time for this. We need him.>Something else.
>>980035>Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?>Maybe we can help.
>>980035>>Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?
>>980035>Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?
>>980035>Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?>Maybe we can help.Trade tech notes with Brigitte and take a look at the armor. Maybe an outside perspective will help shed some light on the matter.Admittedly, it might just be metal fatigue and outdated components. In which case, building a new one from scratch would be the best bet and the Watchpoint might have the facilities to do so.
>>980035>>Wait, "quest"? What's got him all riled up?>>Maybe we can help.
>>980039>>980042>>980046>>980063>>980073>>980079"Wait, "quest"?" you say. "What's got him all riled up? Maybe we can help.""Doctor Junkenstein," says Reinhardt. "He has returned! Tonight is ze night of his revenge!!""Er ..." you say. "Doctor Junkenstein?""It's a story he used to tell at Halloween," Tracer says to you, disbelief on her face. "Something about a mad scientist, and that big castle up there. I heard old Rein was going a little nutters, but I didn't think ...""It is real!" Reinhardt shouts, slamming a gigantic fist on the table. "I saw ze Bastion unit come back from ze dead!"Brigitte is rubbing her forehead. "He claims that one of the overgrown Bastions on the edge of town came to life and attacked him. That he had to smash in its central CPU with a rock. Barely escaped with his life.""It happened," insists Reinhardt. "We are all in danger. I must go to ze castle at once. Brigitte, please finish my armor. When it is ready, I will go forth."Brigitte sighs, heads to the back of the room. You see some kind of portable forge, and next to it, the Crusader armor of legend. She wasn't lying when she said it was barely holding together. Metal fatigue, jury-rigged or outdated components ... it could be the only way to fix it would be to build a new one from scratch. But who has the skills these days to build a Crusader suit?Reinhardt is staring darkly at a hologram suspended over a table. A battle plan. You realize this tavern must be where the Crusaders had their headquarters for the defense against the Omnics, all those years ago.Reinhardt's story seems pretty far-fetched. He is a legendary warrior, but that wouldn't stop his mind starting to fade as he aged. On the other hand, maybe the best way to get him on the team is to help him see this through, whatever happens.You say to him ...>We'll go with you.>Think about what you're saying. This is crazy.>Something else.
>>980109>We'll go with you.I wonder if we'll find bastion.
>>980109>>We'll go with you.while we are a freedom fighter (criminal) we are also an adventurer
>>980109>>We'll go with you.If we do find bastion I hope Reinhardt doesn't just gank him.
>>980109>Something Else"Reinhardt, there's a chance one bot just reactivated randomly. You know how sturdy those Bastion models were. How about you show us the one that attacked you?"
>>980155We'll still get a chance to poke around inside the Crusader, right?
>>980109>>We'll go with you.Well Rein's gone batshit. Still, two heroes for the price of one? That's a helluva deal right there.
I think it would be neat if our character Incorporated stuff from the other Overwatch heroes. It could be tech related, like using the tech behind Reinhardt's shield to improve our own, or character building, like studying under Zenyatta after a suggestion from Genji.
>>980239You should find yourself pleased by what I have in mind, anon.
>>980248Sounds interesting.We'll be able to help rebuild the Crusader, right?
>>980268Somebody will be.
>>980109>>We'll go with you.
>>980239>>980248Now hold on there. That's a dangerous path to tread--taking bits and pieces from the other Heroes. We start doing that, where do we stop? I don't want us becoming some flippy Mary Sue that can Blink like Tracer, has Reinhardt's Shield, Zarya's damage-boosting barriers, and Ana's Biotic grenades.
>>980268id hope so since we would have most likely repair are own shit back to working order since we scavenged it
>>980285You won't be a Mary Sue, either. You'll have some cool options, that's all. Your first upgrade option should come after this mission, so you can see for yourself.
>>980285I don't think he means stealing their gimmicks, just using them to improve our own. From what I see, we're not a full hero yet as most of our gear and abilities aren't at Hero Tier. Studying the others would be our way of joining Overwatch's elites.
If reinheath join, can we still EXPERIENCE TRANQUILITY?
>>980311Let's not extend our reach too much here. Right now we should focus on Reinhardt not killing Bastion--then we can focus on how we can house human-first folk like Reinhardt or Torbjorn together in-base alongside the Omnics.
>>980119>>980121>>980127>>980225>>980282"We'll go with you."Reinhardt blinks, looks around as though remembering where -- or when -- he is. "Ja. Das ist gut." He looks down at you, smiling. His one good eye seems clear and focused. "Bandit, yes? I will be glad to have you fight beside me."You look over at Tracer. "You're okay with this?"She shrugs, offers you a smile. "Not sure, really. But if it's what me old pal Reinhardt wants, then let's do it already. Just like old times, eh Rein?""Ahhh yes," the big man says, smiling as he remembers. "Those were glorious days. Do you remember in Paris, when it was just you and me against those hooligans? It is good you are here, Lena. I shall be glad of your company.""All right, then let's ..." Tracer trails off. "Wait. Do you guys hear something?"You listen carefully. You do hear something. A metallic clanking sound, then a sort of spinning noise--"Get down, my friends!" Reinhardt shouts. Everyone dives for cover--A hail of bullets cuts through the tavern, right where you were standing. The wooden beams of the walls splinter into pieces. Windows shatter. Kegs and tankards are blasted apart. The thundering noise of a machine gun on automatic fire comes from outside the tavern's front door.You and Tracer are in cover near each other. You meet her eyes. She looks pissed. She takes out her pistols. "Ready, mate?"What do you do?>Go straight out the front to draw fire.>Flank left with the gun.>Flank high and right with the grav boots.>Something else.
>>980344>>Flank high and right with the grav boots.
>>980344>>Go straight out the front to draw fire.Rein doesn't have his armor on so our shield is about the only thing capable of taking some heat while Rein suits up.We should also probably tell him to go suit up.
>>980344>>Flank left with the gun.We can't tank--but flanking is something we can do.
Our gunblade is an energy weapon, right? Combination Beam Magnum and Energy Blade?
>>980445it fires anergy rounds but the blade its self is metal
>Flank high and right with the grav boots.
>>980497when i drew that little concept thing in the last thread the blade was just a place holder. I was totally on board with it being an energy blade when someone suggested it.
>>980508I'm gonna try to sketch out what I have in mind tomorrow.
>>980532good on ya m8. cant be anymore slapdashed than mine.
>>980445The way I've looked at it is a beam saber with a blaster built into the hilt--something like that lightsaber/blaster combo deal Ezra had for awhile in Star Wars Rebels.
>MFW I skipped the skip in character creation deciding if the weapon is mechanical or energy based.A straight up laser sword and energy blaster combo is good. Unless there's a sudden huge upswell of support for charged metal blade with railgun combo, we'll go with that.
>>980545maybe have the extended blade act as a barrel for a huge charged shot as well if it's a railgun.
>>980545>Railgun.It would match with our theme of gravity/magnetic based powers.
>>980543that thing is ugly as fuck
>>980567it actually would
>>980545>>980567>>980609Gauss Magnum with a blade made of plasma contained in a magnetic envelope.
>>980627Sounds good to me.>>980347>>980356>>980503"Let's do this," you say to Tracer. "You go left. I'll go right.""Roger," she says. "Ready when you are."The gunfire stops for a moment. Whatever it is might be reloading. "Go!" you shout. You make a dash to the right side of the room. Out of the corner of your eye you see a blue blur as Tracer blinks to the left.The brewery has a second floor overlook with an exit on the right wall. There are stairs, but who has time for that? You trigger your graviton boosters and anime-jump through the air, landing on the overlook, and running outside.You look down on a small street leading into the square in front of the brewery. In the square is exactly what you had hoped not to see: one of the overgrown Bastion units, dark red under the moss. It's active, deployed in sentry mode, and apparently fully functional. Its central glows an ominous red. It finishes reloading, and begins to pour another round of fire into the tavern. Shell casings clatter to the cobblestones around it.Across from you is another second-story rooftop, with a great angle of fire. You could grav-jump over there, if you just had some kind of distraction --"Yoo-hoo!" Tracer calls out to the Bastion from the opposite side of the square. "Looking for me?"The Bastion's massive gun swivels in her direction and opens up, but she blinks out of the line of fire. Seizing the opportunity, you leap to the second rooftop, and unload a full magazine from high ground directly into the Bastion. It's blasted to pieces before it can track up to you. It falls apart. The red light in its eye dims and goes out.(Continued)
You hop off the rooftop and approach the omnic carefully, watching for any signs of life. It appears completely dead. You give it a kick. Nothing. "What the hell was that?"Tracer walks up to the other side of the blasted robot. She looks pale. "This is not good," she says, shaking her head. "Not good at all. Bandit, do you realize what this could mean?">It means we kicked its ass!>You're right. This could just be the start of something.>Keep calm. This is probably an isolated incident.>Let's stay focused. The big picture can wait.>What should we do now?>Something else.
>>980687>>You're right. This could just be the start of something..>>What should we do now?
>>980687>>You're right. This could just be the start of something.Are we going all the way to the castle keep? Looks like we might have a long slog if all the Omnics from the last war are waking up.
>>980687>You're right. This could just be the start of something.Yeah, someones trying to bring about some old tensions. Possibly Talon.
>>980687>You're right. This could just be the start of something.
>>980687>You're right. This could just be the start of something.>Should stay focused for now, can't have these things getting the drop on us.
>>980692>>980716>>980724>>980798>>980840"You're right," you say. "This could just be the start of something. Maybe someone trying to bring about some old tensions.""That's the last thing we need for Omnic rights," says Tracer. "But wot could have reactivated it? Why now? These bots have been sitting here for decades.""Maybe Talon?" you guess. "They work for anti-Omnic zealots a lot, right? They seem like the sort of sleazeballs who might pull something like this. For now, let's stay focused. Can't have these things getting the drop on us.""Right. Got to deal with what's in front of us.""What should we do now?" you ask her.The front doors to the tavern slam open. "We shall prove ourselves in glorious combat!" Reinhardt announces, fully geared in his full Crusader armor. He barely fits through the doors to join you in the square. "You see? The Omnics are coming back. Dr. Junkenstein's terrible experiments have brought them back from the dead. We detected an energy surge when we arrived. There!" He points to the tall castle that stands over the town. "That's how I knew. The castle is his lair. And we must put an end to his madness, once and for all!"You look up at the castle. "Yikes. This might be a long slog.""Come, my friends!" Reinhardt strides off, his gigantic Rocket Hammer in hand. "There's glory to be won!" No time for planning with this guy. You hustle after him. Reinhardt walks uphill to the right, past a sign marked Gutebackeri. The street then turns to the left, passing under a stone archway. Two more Bastion units are here. One is on top of the archway, already in sentry mode. Its machine gun swivels to face Reinhardt and opens fire with the sound of thunder.Reinhardt's shield springs to life, a huge glowing blue rectangle. It crackles with energy where the bullets are striking it. "Come, my friends!" He shouts to you and Tracer. "I will be your shield!"The second Bastion is below it at street level. It stays in recon mode and runs to your right with clattering flootsteps, trying to find an angle past Reinhardt's shield as it fires its submachine gun.>Stay behind Reinhardt's shield.>Fall back, flank from the Gutebackerei>Advance, flank from Die Zaubertrote>Something else.
>>980687>Something Else"Either Bastion Units are spontaneously reactivating, or someone is messing around with them."How many shots does our Magnum mode carry?
>Stand in front of Reinhardt's shield and die because you don't know that your tank's giant glowing rectangle protects you.This is the most popular option when I'm Reinhardt in Quickplay.
>>980930>>Fall back, flank from the Gutebackerei
>>980930>>Advance, flank from Die ZaubertroteThat shield ain't gonna last for ten seconds against a sieged-up Bastion--let's shut this guy down quick!
>>980930>Stay Behind the Shield Activate our Plasma blade"Reinhardt! Get me close to the Recon one!"Let's not risk jumping out when the bullet spray is coming directly at us.
>>980930>Fall back and take shots at the bastion in recon mode.Don't want him getting around that shield.
>>980930>>Stay Behind the Shield >Activate our Plasma blade>"Reinhardt! Get me close to the Recon one!">Let's not risk jumping out when the bullet spray is coming directly at us.
>>980930>>980980>>980999I agree with this plan of action. We CAN block the shots and send them back right?
Found a Thing to outline how we fight: youtube.com/watch?v=xYvAAb2qEFkToo bad Brink sucked.
>>981056>Too bad Brink sucked.it did and i was so hyped for that game
>>981064I know right! The trailer looked so cool.
>>981035Sorry anon, you're not Genji yet. The sword-block is underpowered so you can upgrade it later.
>>980980>>980999>>981035You stay behind Reinhardt's shield, trying not to pee yourself as the barrage of machine gun bullets strikes the barrier right in front of you. "Reinhardt!" you shout at him over the din of bullets. "Get me close to the recon one!""I'll get the sentry!" calls out Tracer. She blinks away, and you lose track of her."Understood!" The knight advances steadily into the teeth of the storm. Bullets slam continuously into the barrier. It starts to develop cracks. He remains unfazed. "Is that the best you can do?!" he demands.You wait for the opportunity, and at the right moment, you dart out from behind the energy shield toward the recon Bastion. With a snap of your wrist you transform your weapon into sword form, and unleash a combination of fast, powerful strikes. The plasma sheath of your blade leaves a colored trail through the air as it weaves back and forth. The recon Bastion is cut to shreds.You look up at the sentry Bastion on the stone arch. It's reloading, ready to unload another two hundred bullets. Reinhardt's energy shield is looking bad, you don't think it can handle another one of those--Tracer blinks onto the stone arch from the left. Those pistols of hers unload a full magazine in exactly a second, and that's what she does to the Bastion at point-blank range, shredding it with blue smart bullets. It swivels to target her, but she recalls out of its view.Reinhardt seizes the moment, swinging his mighty Rocket Hammer to fire the signature projectile of the Cruaders, the Flame Strike. The flame pierces through the Bastion, frying its circuits. It's still functioning, just barely -- the machine gun begins to turn back, to target Reinhardt again -- but Tracer blinks back onto the stone arch and delivers another blast from her pistols. The Bastion collapses into pieces, some of them falling to the ground below the arch.You take a moment to catch your breath, but there's no rest for Reinhardt. "Bring me another!" he shouts, striding forward under the arch. Shouldn't the sixty-year-old man be struggling to keep up with you, not the other way around? You hurry after him ...
This is the hill you just went up, with the arch to the left.
Reinhardt leads the way past the arch and up to a mighty stone wall, then through a small doorway next to the huge wooden gate. Out the doorway, you see a squat tower in front of you, with the cobblestone road leading off to the left. And in the tower--"More Bastions up top!" you say. One is all the way on top of the tower, the other is on some kind of wooden platform in front of a second-story window. They both see you, and begin their transformation to sentry mode."Get behind me!" shouts Reinhardt, activating his shield, recharged to full strength. The sentry Bastions start to pour bullets onto him. The shield quickly starts cracking. Reinhardt grunts. "I can't hold against this!""I'm on it," you tell him, hoping it's true.>Run up the stairs to the right.>Go straight in the ground-floor door right in front of you.>Duck back behind the castle wall, flank from the left.>Something else.
>>981374>>Run up the stairs to the right.Control the high ground!
>>981374>>Run up the stairs to the right.who ever repaired these things is getting kneecaped
>>981374>>Run up the stairs to the right.

>>981437You beautiful bastard, thank you.
So, anyone else up for reverse engineering a suit of armor after studying the Crusader? Not a massive suit of power armor, but something that enhances our toughness and agility while extending our graviton boots to a full body effect.
>>981674I was thinking we engineer the shield tek to make our sword be made of it, Imagine how thin and sharp it could be while we can also power it to shield from bullets.Personally I think our set up should becomeM1/M2: Shoot/SlashPassive: Moon Boot MobilityShift: Maybe some kind of Burst of speed (escape/ambush ability)E: Our Mag field shieldQ: Our Field launches all the damage and energy it's absorbed in a self centred AoE
>>981674That would be interesting, though if we were looking for lighter power armour we would do better with the Egyptian flight armour. Even more so since it contains flight capabilities to enhance the anti-grav we already have.
>>981674Maybe--honestly, if we're stationed up at Gibraltar, I was wondering if we could take a spare set of the old Overwatch armor out of the armory. Even better if it's something based off the OG Strike Team, I'd wager.
>>981701I see where you're coming from, although it's not as interesting to me.>>981708>>981726I wanted to go for something that reflected our Character. He's a gearhead, not a scientist and he's cobbled together most of his gear based on the Technology of others. With some proper backing and equipment, as well as expert help, he could create some Hero worthy gear.Also, I don't want to change his fighting style too much. Super agility + parkour is pretty cool and making all of his movement graviton enhanced has potential for serious badassery. Using a set of light Overwatch armor would make good sense.
Well this is actually sorta interesting and it's getting my art-boner up. Keep up the good work Ravenking.
Sorry guys, things went longer than I anticipated. I'll have to resume later.>>981674>>981701>>981708>>981726>>981775These are all good ideas. I'll keep them in mind when I work on your possible upgrade options for when you return to base.>>982721Thanks anon. Glad to have you on board.
>>981701It hasn't really been set in stone but there was talk back in the previous thread about how the Ultimate would basically be the Omnislash
I'm interested in this quest, read the last thread. And I await the waifu war
>>983745Tracer is gay, Pharah is taken, Mercy and Ana too old, Widow and Sombra not an option. Options left:>Mei >D.Va>Symmetra
>>983778>D.VaKorean Goblin waifu when?
>>983778Symmetra is probably Asexual.You forgot Zarya.I'm leaning D.Va though. I feel she and Bandit would get along.
>>983778What about Zarya?
>>983778Fuck yeah, D. VaI wouldn't be opposed to fucking tracer straight though
>>983778ya kingraven said in the last thread that all of the women are an option to waifu except widowmaker since we are gonna be fighting her
>>983836>>983840Zarya probably won't leave Russia vut it depends on where Ravenking takes this quest
>>983895If we're dealing with Omnics and shit, we're probably going to Russia.
>>983895>>983906We are all forgetting that there is always the husbando's. Still that only adds another 4 or 5 options. Many of which are difficult to get access to.
>>983944Ohhhhhh? A waifu AND a husbanado war? I am fully invested now
>>984002Genji is best Husbando. Closely followed by McCree.
>>984283Zenyatta is a best.
>>984341Zenyatta has transcended beyond all earthly needs so he wouldn't reciprocate.
>>984407There are many that would disagree with your assessment. Still, we would need OP's confirmation either way and it is a very long term goal but generally this is how I see it.Waifu's are generally better than Husbando's, mostly for quest sustainability (more straight anons than gay anons).We will be ignoring certain pieces of cannon, purely because they are rather out of the blue or underdeveloped. For example the tracer sexuality reveal will probably be ignored.We are assuming that every named character was, can and will be date-able. Ignoring the case of people we are enemies of or other such events get in the way. E,g widowmaker.Also I won't go into great detail but Lucio is clearly the best homosexual option, ignoring genji. I have seen too many cute things involving him in frog overalls and pyjamas to not want.
>>983778>Mercy>Too oldThat is a blatant lie, don't you dare try to deny us from getting that blonde booty.>Pharah is takenIf you're basing this off the comic, it was stated that she wasn't on a date.

>>984968Should we expect another update tonight?
>>984968Hey Ravenking, if our tech has no wireless capabilities, can it still be hacked?
>>984985Yes, I'll be back a few hours from now.>>985003Everything can be hacked, and everyone.
>>985069I wonder if she ever tried that on Roadhog.
So I found another possible pic for our gun-sword
>>985820That looks extremely impractical.I understand you put it out there as a possible design for a non-existent weapon used by an OC made by a group of anonymous users for a quest based on a video game made by a developer primarily known for it's cartoonish art-style and high-fantasty titles, but still.
Honestly, the best design that I can think of for our gun is a large Magnum where you can fold the grip into the main body of the gun which would then project a plasma blade out from the barrel.
I just realised that hunters from destiny are a good base for possible MC outfits.
>>981432>>981436>>981437You dash up the stairs and turn left, into the second floor of the tower. As this happens, Tracer blinks forward, through the front door, and again up a set of stairs that lead to the same room you're in. One of the Bastions is straight ahead, focusing its fire on Reinhardt's shield. You and Tracer simultaneously deliver a burst from your weapons, blasting the Bastion to pieces. You catch each others' eyes and grin at each other.Reinhardt is still being focused by the Bastion on the tower. His energy shield shatters. Bullets clang as they strike his armor. "Ach!" you hear him cry out as one of the shots penetrates. He's forced to retreat back behind the castle wall. You and Tracer step outside onto the wooden platform, looking up at the top of the tower. "I got this one," you say to her, reloading your weapon.Getting up to that tower would be difficult for someone who didn't have some kind of vertical mobility. Like for example, graviton actuators in their boots that let them jump super-high. With two quick leaps skyward, you're on top of the tower behind the second Bastion unit.As you run forward, you empty your magazine into the back of the Bastion, then with a swing your arm, transform your weapon into blade mode. The Omnic's machine gun turns around to face you, but just as it erupts into automatic fire, you dodge nimbly to the side, and the bullets hit nothing but air. You strike the Bastion with your three-slash combination and turn it into scrap.(Continued)
>>985890always thought they looked the best
>>985890>>985909Because they are the best.
You hop back down to the street, where Tracer and Reinhardt have regrouped. "Piece of cake," you say."Nice one," says Tracer. "Reinhardt, you okay, mate?""It's nothing," he grunts, although you spot a couple places where the bullets penetrated his armor. He seems to notice your concern. "I'll have time to bleed in the morning. Let us keep moving, my friends," he says as he continues down the street, his armor clanking with each step.You fall into step with Tracer, a few paces behind him, and look at her. "Is he really okay?" you ask her.She shrugs. "What can we even do about it at this point? When the big man's going someplace, you can't stop him. All you can do is stay behind the shield, and try your best to back him up."The two of you catch up with Reinhardt. "Did I tell you about Eichenwalde?" he asks you, as the three of you pass under a stone arch and onto a bridge. "This is the home town of my master, Balderich. He was born here! And ... he died here." His voice growns mournful. "We fought a terrible battle here. Many Crusaders lost their lives.">Ask about the Crusaders.>Ask about Balderich.>Ask about the battle.>Ask him something else.>Let's stay focused.
>>986002>>Let's stay focused.Don't want to end up losing Rein. Gotta make sure nobody gets the drop on us.
>>986002>>Ask about Balderich.
>>986002>>Ask about the battle.
>>986002>ask about BalderichDid a giant enemy crab do him in?
>>986002>>Ask about the Crusaders.>Ask about the battle.Time for lore!
>>986002>Let's stay focused.We've got work to do. The war stories come after.
>>983778>Ana>Too old>laughingcougars.jpgMei is getting on in years as well--only thing keeping her looking so young was cryo-stasis--which, depending on how Ravenking wants to move the story, she might still be in. And D.va--Hana is about 19, isn't she? Do we really wanna glomb on to late-teenager, early young adult problems? Yes, she is probably the closest in age to us--second to Tracer, probably.Honestly, I'm just holding out hope that our paths will cross with a certain hacker.
>>986082That is unlikely, considering that she falls in with talon in universe and would therefore be an enemy.Still, if we encounter her before then or can somehow change her mind as to working for them. Then we can consider waifuing the shit out of her.For now though let us focus on the ones we know will be available; mercy, tracer and Reinhardt's mechanic (assuming they aren't fucking like rabbits, with very large hammers...).
>>986037>>986041>>986049"Tell me about Balderich," you say to Reinhardt as you cross the bridge. You think about an old joke involving a giant crab, but now's maybe not the best time for that. Instead, you ask, "What sort of man was he?"Reinhardt says, "He was a great man. Brave. A strong leader, and a powerful warrior. He always led from the front of battle, desiring that he himself should be the first to take any blow meant for his comrades. We Crusaders gladly followed him into battle many times." The knight looks up at the castle tower in front of you. "When he was gone, I ... I tried to follow his example. What would Balderich do, I asked myself? I tried to be a knight worthy of his legacy. And so, when the Crusaders were no more and only I remained, I joined Overwatch, so I might place myself in the vanguard again. Now ..." You hear frustration creeping into his voice. "I don't know how I could face him now."Tracer, "Rein, old pal, the reason we're here--""Damn," you mutter, spying something strange ahead. "Sorry to interrupt, Tracer, but I think we've got a problem."(Continued)
Ahead of you lies another stone bridge, this one leading to the mighty castle gate. Four collapsed, overgrown Bastions lie near the castle gate. They don't seem to be active, so you're puzzled at signs of movements. Then you realize the movement comes from something else entirely.Small black drones are hovering over the derelict Bastions, mechanical under-limbs working away busily with tools and cutters and circuit welders --"Those drones," you say. "They're repairing the Bastions. That's how they reactivated ...""But who's controlling the drones?" asks Tracer."Good question," you say. The Bastion's eyes flicker from dark to a sinister red glow. Their machinery clatters as they start to activate. "A question for later. Right now, we've got other problems."You're on a bridge, which makes flanking difficult. There's a small wooden platform to your right, but getting there involves a gravity leap over the abyss -- possible, even likely to succeed, but your gut lurches as you contemplate plummeting to your death. You could also charge straight down the middle, taking the initiative while the Bastions are still activating. Or you could fall back to the start of the bridge and the shelter of a stone wall to your left, while you plan your next move.>Gravjump to the wooden platform>Seize the initiative, charge straight in>Fall back to the stone wall>Something else.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>986185>Something else.Grav jump with as much power as we can spare into the Top of the repeir drones head.they can either a) Destroy the drone helpping us and we bail into coverb)not shoot us and let us pick them off from above

>>986185>Gravjump to the wooden platform>provide cover fire for Tracer and Reinhardt while flyingBest thing we can do is create some space between our party and try to cover each other.
>>986185>>Seize the initiative, charge straight inIf Rein's managed to get that jet-powered charge working on his armor, now's the time for him to pop that, too.
>>986185>>Seize the initiative, charge straight in
>>986185this >>986194 is by far one of the most needlessly reckless stupid idea I have read in a long time and I am 100% for it
>>986194>>986196>>986212Instead of any of that, you get one of the most needlessly reckless ideas you've had in a long time. And you go for it.Ramping your grav boots up to full power, you leap into the air, and come down right on top of one of the repair drones. It wobbles crazily, its thrusters firing wildly as it attempts to stay upright with a human's weight on top of it. You keep your balance, barely, but enough to ready your weapon in sword form. As the Bastion below you unfolds and stands up into Recon mode, you slash it with your plasma blade. You dodge a burst of fire from its submachine gun, almost falling off the repair drone as you do, then attack again. Just as you strike the killing blow, though, it lands a hefty sock to your jaw with its robotic fist. The Bastion falls to pieces. You're fine, except for a crack in your helmet, a ringing sound in your ear, and a jaw that feels like a small train just ran into it.HP: 170/200The other Bastions are starting to transform into Sentry mode. Your gut drops as three machine guns level themselves at you. This really was a reckless plan. But when you do something reckless, that's when it's good to have friends.You hear a distinctive engine sound, one you remember from the holo-vids. Reinhardt comes charging into the fray on his rocket boosters, pinning one of the Bastions, and crushing it into smithereens on the wall. He finishes it off with a mighty swing from his giant hammer. "Haha! Is that all?!" On your other side, a blue blur streaks onto the battlefield. Tracer tosses a white discus onto a third Bastion. "Here ya go!" The disc pulses blue, explodes, shatters the Omnic.That still leaves one. You're about to deal with it when the repair drone finally wrestles itself free of you, and flees into the air like a scurrying rat. You land on your butt on the stones. The last remaining Bastion's machine gun is pointed straight at you.What do you do? Choose one and roll a d10:>Magnetic Shield>Evasive action>Gun form: Trade fire>Sword form: Charge!
>>986331>>Sword form: Charge!WITNESS US REINHARDT!

>>986364I guess it wasent fully repaired
>>986347My first roll I do for the quest is a 10. >mfwAnd I genuinely laughed because I have shit luck with rolls usually
>>986347The Bastion's machine gun thunders, its muzzle flashing like lightning. But you're Bandit, ace adventurer, and this is nothing you haven't handled before. You dive forward with an awesome combat roll, swing up your sword, and slice the machine gun barrels in half.>>986349The Omnic beeps, malfunctioning as its machine gun grinds to a stop. It starts to transform into recon mode, but before it can bring its submachine gun to bear, you slash it to pieces.>>986360You try to think of some kind of cool one-liner, but nothing comes to mind. Damn. Maybe next time.Tracer says, "Wish we got a chance to look at those repair drones. I tried disabling one, but it had some kinda self-destruct mechanism. Disintegrated.""We'll figure that out later," you say. "Reinhardt. You said there was an energy surge coming from inside this castle, right?""Correct," he says. "Whatever's causing all this, it must be here."Tracer says, "Wot do you suppose it is? I mean, it's not really Dr. Junkenstein from your Halloween stories ..." She peers up at the castle gate, confused. "Is it?""Zere's only one way to find out," he says. "Follow me." He stomps off into a side entrance, a passageway through the stone beside the main gate.Good thing this passage is here, you think as you follow him. Otherwise you would've needed something to get through that huge main gate, like a battering ram or something.(Continued)
>>986435>My roll kept us from having a cool catchphrase.SHIT!
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>986439>>986435Let's see if my rolls are still good, for a catchphrase
>>986469its ok we still cut the barrels I'm half like a boss so we still look cool as fuck
>>986446>>986467Rolls are still good, so I don't blame you. But you better save this shit for when we need a catchphrase goddamn it.I don't wanna waste it for nothing now that it's good.
Inside the castle, a vast hallway flanked by railed balconies leads into the interior. The three of you walk along a rich, red carpet in the center of the hall. Dust lies thick on the railings, cobwebs crowd the corners. It's quiet. Too quiet, you think.Turning the corner, you find a throne room, lit by angular beams of sunlight from high windows. Slumped in the throne is a once-grand suit of armor, adorned with golden wings; now, like the shattered omnics, a home to moss and weeds."Balderich," says Reinhardt, his voice breaking. "My lord. He fought to the last, to break the Omnic offensive. Only when the final enemy was shattered would he lay down his weapon. And then ..." He looks down at his armor-clad hands, tightens them into fists. "If only I had been there. Perhaps I could have saved him.">"Don't beat yourself up over this.">"You would only have died too.">"I'm sure he would be proud of you.">"Stay focused. We have to find whatever's in here.">Let Tracer handle the conversation while you look around.>Something else.
>>986478>>Let Tracer handle the conversation while you look around.We only just met the guy.
>>986478>>Let Tracer handle the conversation while you look around.
>>986478>>"I'm sure he would be proud of you."He deserves a burial, doesn't he?
>>986478>>Let Tracer handle the conversation while you look around.adventurer and relic sense's active
>>986478actually, can we see if there's any functional pieces of the armor? We are a patch-work hero, are we not?
>>986478>Something else.>"You can't beat yourself up over this, he would have wanted you to continue fighting on. I'm sure that he would be proud of you. To protect those who can't protect themselves."
>>986492maybe put a pile of rocks over the body.I doubt we have the time to dig a hole that big.
>>986502...oh goddamnit I forgot we share the ID
>>986478>Let Tracer handle the conversation while you look around
You decide to let Tracer handle the conversation. You'd like to encourage Reinhardt, but you only just met the guy. Instead, while she does her best to console him, you look around the room.You start out searching for clues on whatever might be controlling those repair bots. But then your relic-hunter sense kicks in, and you look at that big suit of armor sitting on the throne. That suit of advanced armor, perhaps parts that might be scavenged.It's maybe a little gauche -- the guy probably deserves a burial -- but really, wouldn't a warrior like that want his armor to protect people after his death? It's perfectly respectful. You'll just have to convince Reinhardt of that, you think, as you move towards the suit of armor.You ascend the steps to the throne, stepping into the sunlight. Motes of dust dance in the sunbeams. You gaze upon the armor, the gold engravings still lustrous after all these years. You peer into the depths of the helmet's shadowed visor. Somewhere in there is the corpse of the legendary warrior Balderich von Adler ...The armor shifts slightly. Dust rises into the air.Okay. That must be a coincidence. No problem.Something glows in one of the helmet's dark eye sockets. A single eye, a deep red crimson."Uh ... guys?" you say. You start to back away slowly. "Guys?!"The armor clanks. The grass around its hands begins to rip and tear. Its arms begin to move. It sits up."Guys, something's happening--!"Tracer blinks to your side. "Bandit, what's ooohhhh my god! Bloody hell! Are you seeing this, mate?""I'm seeing it but not believing it--"Balderich? -- Balderich's armor? -- slowly stands up from the throne.(Continued)
"W-what do we do?" asks Tracer."I don't know," you say. "I didn't get to this section in the Overwatch training manual."Reinhardt walks past you, slowly approaching the figure at the throne. "Balderich? M-my Lord? Is that really you?"You've got a bad feeling about this. "Reinhardt," you say. "I'd think you'd better be careful--"The armor flexes its fingers. It reaches out to the side, grasps the massive spiked hammer next to it in its right hand.Sometimes you hate being right. "Look out!" you shout, trying to push Reinhardt out of the way. But of course you can't push a man in a seven-foot tall suit of armor. All you can do is get out of the way ...Soundtrack: Overwatch OST - Eichenwalde https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibQ-1KijZE8Balderich's hammer comes crashing down into Reinhardt's shoulder. He staggers under the blow, his knees buckling. "My lord! Why are you doing this--" He takes another blow to the stomach, doubles over, falls to one knee. "Please, I beg of you--""Reinhardt!" you shout at him. "Whatever that thing is, it's not your lord! You have to defend yourself!""Hrrraaargh!" The old warrior's fighting instincts have kicked in. He blocks the third blow, gets to his feet, and brings up his rocket hammer for an overhead strike, only to be blocked in turn. The two Crusaders swing their huge weapons in mighty blows, crashing into each other with resounding clangs. Their armor dents and cracks under the devastating blows. The ground shakes under the impact of their feet. Truly a battle of titans.Tracer has her pistols out. She fires a magazine into the overgrown suit of armor, to little effect. She shakes one of the pistols angrily. "Grr! Bloody things are no good against that armor. And my pulse bomb is still recharging." She looks at you. "Bandit. You've got to do something!">Sword form: Strike Balderich from behind>Gun form: Harry and distract.>Grav boots: Get up to the balcony, fire from high ground.>Don't interfere, let the two giants battle it out in honorable combat.>Something else.

>>986573>Don't interfere, let the two giants battle it out in honorable combat.This is his battlelet him fight alone
>>986594So we have to act retarded just because Reinhardt does?
>>986573>Grav Boots: Get up to the Balcony, fire from high ground.If the Robo-Balderich can't reach us, and we can aim safely, we can win. Honorable or not, a clean win is a good win, especially if this isn't the final boss.Besides, just because we hve Mercy, doesn't mean we shouldn't still be careful.
>>986596It's not retardation--this is an honor duel right now; us interfering would be a blemish on his character and a sign of weakness. That's like, ionno, anime rules, innit?
>>986600Good thing this is Vidya not Animu
>>986600Anime is retarded though.Also, this isn't an honor duel, this is a hitting match with a suit of automated power-armor.
I hope we develope magnetic tech that lets us crush Omnics like tin cans. Like, a bullet that makes metals fold towards it and makes Bastions implode.
OK, we've got 5 votes for Sword, 3 for Honor. Sword it is. Writing ...

Part of you wants to let Reinhardt fight alone, to leave him to an honorable duel of giants. A story for the ages, just like he would want. But his life is more important. There is still more to his tale."You've still got things to do, Reinhardt," you say, and ready your plasma sword. "I won't let you fight alone. Whatever the past wants with you, it's got to go through me first."The two Crusaders have their hammers locked against each other, straining against each other. The stones under their feet crack under the pressure. Balderich gains the upper hand, shoves Reinhardt's hammer aside, and steps forward--And that's when you strike him in the back with your plasma blade. No honorable call-outs for a rogue like you. The legendary Crusader armor is tough, but it can't stand up to a strike combination, and your attack leaves him damaged.Oddly silent, the giant turns to you and swings its hammer, but you back-step just out of its range, feeling a heavy wind as it whistles past you. You dart back in and one, two, three slashes, and you cut through the chestplate to deal what should be a serious wound.If that was a person in there. that would have taken its heart. They would at least be wounded, staggered back. This thing just keeps coming. You dodge back out of range of another hammer blow, nailing that action hero three-point landing you saw on a holo-vid.Tracer does what she can, peppering the thing with shots from her pistols. The damage is heavily blunted by the armor, but it's at least distracting. Balderich swings his hammer to shoot a Fire Strike at her. "Woah!" She barely dodges it with a blink. A second blink brings her to your side, and she takes a moment to catch her breath. "Is this a bloody zombie?" she asks you."One way to find out," you say.(Continued)
>>986638>"One way to find out."Oh shit son.
>>986631>>986638we really are kind of a big deal aren't we?we aren't some rookie. we be a grade a adventurer!
>>986647and the greatest freedom fighter for the people
>>986647when we get smacked by the actual boss, I'm gonna laugh
>>986648Man, I still fuckin' think we should change our name to Hood.
"Reinhardt," you call out to the veteran. "This has to be done. We'll do it together.""I understand," he says. His rocket hammer's engine begins to glow red. "I am ready."He steps forward, and shouts with all his strength, slams the hammer in the ground. "Hammer DOWN!" The floor erupts in shattered stone. Pieces of the armor go flying from the concussive force. What's left standing is knocked off its feet onto the broken ground. You and Reinhardt forward at the same time from opposite sides, both shouting incoherently, and strike down with your weapons, each dealing a pulverizing final blow.Jolts of electricity run through the battered and broken armor. It twitches. The red light in its eye socket dims, then goes out. The energy stops. The armor lies still."Mein gott," says Reinhardt. He drops his hammer, sinks to his knees. "What have I done?""Whatever this was," you say. "It wasn't your old friend. Okay?" At least, that's what you hope.You look down at what's left of Balderich's Crusader armor. A human in there couldn't have survived all that. Could he?>Take off the helmet.>Call Winston. Maybe a scientist would know what the hell just happened.>Just get out of here before anything else weird happens.
>>986650We just might, seeing as a guy named "Bandit" probably wouldn't help the new Overwatch's public image.
>>986650Nah, I think Hun would be good.Huns were scary mofos but for their people, they were heroes who secured resources.
So was the consensus for pic related being the closest to what our character looks like agreed upon?
>>986652>Take off the helmet.
>>986652>>Take off the helmet.>>Call Winston. Maybe a scientist would know what the hell just happened.and when we take of the helmet we should be bloody careful it isn't rigged.
>>986652>Take off the helmet>Keep the helmet
>>986652>>Take off the helmet.>>Call Winston. Maybe a scientist would know what the hell just happened.And where the hell was Angela this entire op? Has she been back at base this entire time?
>>986652>>Take off the helmet.please tell me that one of the greatest crusader knights for the omnic wars was an omnic
>>986657Kind of. this helmet though.
>>986664I can dig it. We NEED some drawfag to hook us up.
>>986654>>986656Scratch my "Hun" proposalHow about Sellsword?
>>986657Pretty much. Ditching the red color was definitely agreed upon in the last thread--something blue and gold like the oldschool Overwatch armor to replace it, perhaps?
>>986662Angela had to quit her job and stuff.
>>986666Whatever Quad Satan.What about Pilgrim?Or Seeker?
>>986666Some one suggested Renegade last thread.
>>986666>>986654>>986656What about Rogue? Too generic?>>986671Pilgrim carries religious connotations that we don't fit.Seeker, though--that might be it.
>>986668If we wanna do the whole hero bit, maybe white and blue would work.
>>986671I'd be down with Seeker, Conscript, or Sellsword>>986662I thought she didn't have her gear...
Since Destiny Hunters are coming up, what about Hunter as a name? Rogue and Seeker are pretty good too.
>>986673>>986676We could also just pull the "Bandit's my actual name." BS if we wanted to go the Seeker route.
>>986671I'm liking "Seeker".
>>986677These all sound good. I'm not saying Bandit is bad, it just reminds me of a pet name for a raccoon.
>>986671>Or Seeker?I like
Yeah, I'm on board with Seeker now.Plus, if we get a mag-tracer ult for our gunmode, that's even better.
>>986675White and blue would be neat.The sword presents some problems for the model. If it's a tangible blade, we could have the sheath strapped across our back--otherwise if it's a beam saber we could keep the thing strapped to our belts while the pistol is out if the two are separate and not one and the same.>>986677Rogue and Seeker are my pics--the former more than the latter; Seeker sounds a bit too similar to Tracer in my head
>>986680You got something against raccoons, pal?>>986671>>986676>>986678>>986679>>986682Sounds good to me. I'll bring this up again to confirm it in Part 3, which will be base and character building stuff, so an appropriate time.
>>986678we stated in the first thread that bandit was more of a place holder for a better name
>>986687I was thinking something akin to this for our weapon. Change the colors to something else and it may work
>>986687We saught a better worldWe saught our fortunesWe saught to give it away to help the needingWe're a Seeker for sure.
>>986691id rather we use finale fantasy's gunsword not leons but lightings
>>986691If I recall people last thread where thinking something more like this.
>>986698yes this is what I'm thinking but give the blade a HF highlight on the edge of it
>>986695>>986698Yeah like this, but cybertech
>>986702>>986704something like this?
>>986698I'm reminded of something I saw the other night when, probably against better judgement, I delved into the fandom and saw a bunch of OC's.There was a lot of cheese, a lot of broken abilities, and a whole lot of busy fucking designs.
>>986707I'm all aboard for it, but less like a katana. Make it more like a saber
>>986707something exactly like thatmoments like this is why I think questing with you faggots is fun
>>986707Not that Anon but I think that'd look rad, my only issue is being too similar to the ol' Genj-meister
I like the design, so this is just my contribution.
>>986707I like the look of that blade--this was Borderlands, right?
>>986717you that's zero from the second one
>>986711>>986707Or like a shashka here>>986717Si
Another thing to consider once we've got our Moves and our Look sorted out is; what theme do our alternate skins use?Rein has metalsAna has gemstonesBandit/Hood/Seeker has....?Etc etc
>>986722Goddamn it forgot the picture
>>986724We have magnets, so red blue and shiny chrome
>>986724Spices--coriander, saffron, nutmeg, that sorta thing.One of the legendary skins would be Hood--some modern Robin Hood sorta look with the bow strung up behind our backs. Something like that Green Arrow costume from that TV show?
"Tracer," you say. "Can you call Winston? Maybe a scientist will know what the hell is going on.""Roger," she says. "One moment, folks.""I'm, er ... I'm going to take off the helmet," you say. Steeling yourself for the unknown, you kneel down beside the ruined armor, undo the gorget fasteners, and slowly lift the helmet to reveal ..."Empty," you say, hardly believing it. Could it really be that one of the greatest Crusader knights of the Omnic Wars ... was an Omnic? You look up at Reinhardt. "Could it really--""He was human," sighs Reinhardt. He's still on his knees beside the armor. "I saw him get in and out of his armor with my own eyes. He was not secretly an Omnic. At least, not back then. This? I don't know what this is.""It must be that someone come along later," you say. "Took his body out of the armor, gave it a proper burial. Left the armor there on the throne. Maybe as a monument to the defense of the town. Or maybe just because they couldn't move the damn thing.""It was empty all the time," muses Reinhardt. "My master's armor, being used as a puppet. But who was pulling the strings?"Tracer approaches, holding a vid-projector that's displaying a midair two-way camera. Winston is on screen. "I may be able to assist you with that question," he says. "Hello, Reinhardt. Good to see you, although I wish it were under better circumstances.""Winston," says Reinhardt. "Do you know what happened here? What did this to my master's armor? Could it really be one of -- them?"Winston clears his throat, takes off his glasses and begins to polish them. "There are several distinct possibilities which could account for--""Do not hide behind theories, monkey! Give me an answer! They forced me to-- hrrngh" Reinhardt tries to struggle to his feet, fails, sinks back. "Was it the God-mind? Do you know? What are you hiding?""Reinhardt, please," says Tracer. "There's no way that could happen. They're all locked up! If he knew anything, Winston would tell us."Winston puts his glasses back on, displeased. "I'm not a monkey," he says. "I'm a scientist. I understand you're upset, Reinhardt. But let's try to be logical about this." >"God-mind"? What is that?>Calm down, guys.>If you do know anything about what happened here, Winston, you'd better tell us now.>Let's discuss this later. Reinhardt's wounded.>Something else.
>>986732>>>If you do know anything about what happened here, Winston, you'd better tell us now.>>Let's discuss this later. Reinhardt's wounded.Hackers? Robots? Zombie magic?
>>986732>>If you do know anything about what happened here, Winston, you'd better tell us now.>>Let's discuss this later. Reinhardt's wounded.>>Something else.Maybe we should check up on your armourer.
>>986732>>Calm down, guys.
>>986732>"God Mind?" What is that?>If you know anything about what happened here, Winston, you'd better tell us now.>>986734I think Talon might be interested in getting hands on a squadron of Robo-mooks.Even better, if a long-dead hero is "leading" them, and using them to cause panic.
>>986732>>"God-mind"? What is that?
nobody wants to be a voice of reason with me and tell both sides to calm down
"If you do know anything about what happened here, Winston, you'd better tell us now," you say."I don't "know" anything," he says. "There are several possibilities. The most likely is that Talon launched some kind of hacking assault. They're known to have a skilled hacker in their employ. Perhaps they wanted the armor for themselves, or they learned of your location and attacked you. Our friend Reinhardt has simply jumped to the worst case scenario.""Which is?""The God-Minds," says Reinhardt darkly. "Our greatest enemy. They should have all been destroyed."Winston says, "The so-called "God Programs" were advanced artificial intelligences, back when research into AI was legal. Some of them caused a great deal of trouble during the Omnic Crisis. There are theories that these programs were responsible for the Crisis in the first place--""And you've kept one alive!" shouts Reinhardt, pointing his finger at the screen. "I know you have your pet Athena there with you. How do you know that she isn't responsible for this?""I keep a strict monitoring protocol engaged on all of Athena's activites," says Winston, getting irritated. "And besides, she's different. You know that. She wants nothing more than to help us."Yikes. This looks like an old argument heating up again. Maybe you'd better cut this short."We can discuss this more," you say. "but later. Right now, we have to get Reinhardt out of here, and get him some medical care."Tracer says, "Can you walk, big guy?"Reinhardt slowly gets to his feet. "Yes. I must make it back to the brewery myself. No passing out for this old man. I doubt the two of you could carry me and my armor all the way back, heh heh ..."The last Crusader walks slowly out of the castle, with Tracer and you at his side.
>>986732>"God-mind"? What is that?>Calm down, guys.Speaking of, when we find the percious cinamon/salt bot. What should about him/it?
Done for tonight, guys. Need bed.In our next chapter, we head back to Watchpoint Gibraltar for some character building. But before then, perhaps a certain mystery character might be encountered nearby.Thanks for playing Overwatch Quest.
>>986759Thanks again Ravenking. Good run!
>>986759Thanks as always for running. Looking forward to more of this quest.Not to pry, but when do you think you might have a chance to run again?
>>986759thanks for runningI'm skittish about the MC meeting symmetra since she works or worked for a mega corp
So are we like Zero from the Megaman Zero Series?That would be pretty baller.
>>986794But we know what we're fighting for anon
>>986794I mean it'd be a solid design without the armor-diaper.
>>986809Jesus fuck you had to pick a terrible one didn't you.
>>986726>>986707Pretty sure we already decided on a plasma blade for the sword mode. Physical just didn't match up with our theme.
What I wouldn't give for a decent scanner that didn't cost $500. Is this any good?
>>986860Personally, I think it's pretty awesome.Just a few criticisms: needs a hooded jacket and the mask needs to be flatter.
>>986860Oh, an the eyes either need to be slits or not visible at all.
>>986860And no hoses?
>>986657Repostan the look for when we go undercover into Talon
>>986860I dig it mang. I don't know if it was meant on purpose, but with the slits above the circle bits on the mask it looks like he's got a constant pleasantly surprised face on.
>>986860I'd rather have something like pic related for the helmet.
>>986759> mystery character nearbynb4 Bastion with Ganymede
>>987139>>987139I'm expecting Sombra, because Talon probably wants in on this shit
>>987057Bruh, Graviton Forfeit though./Its name could even be our passive/
>>988440Make it blue and you got a deal.>Seeker is rebuilding his gear after it gets trashed>"What if I put a mag battery in my faceplate?">And thus Swirly McBlueface was born
>>988542So it's gonna look like Mag from Warframe with the swirly faceplate?
I can't wait to see when Widowmaker's lining up a shot and we just gravtoss it away. If we aren't the smuggest shit at that point, I consider it a failure.I want it to make it an endgame to make Widowmaker's entire assassin career from that point on a total bust. Talon'll just let her go because she can't get a damn thing done most of the time.
>>988924That is an excellent life goal. To literally follow one of the worlds greatest snipers around, effectively just pushing their barrel (since it is made of metal) to the side.Which gives me an idea for an ultimate... or possibly just a targeted (only one person) ability...
>>988959Enemy forced to commit friendly fire?
>>988996Well if that isn't broken beyond belief, I don't know what is
>>988998only works on magnetic metals, and only on the closes enemy nearby, so:Widowmaker lining up a shot, Sombra nearby, widow shoots and hits sombra instead.
>>988996Or maybe we just fuck somebody's accuracy>Line up shot>fire>Hits 20 ft off>Go for stab>my blade is now in the floor
>>988998>>989015>>989028Actually I meant being able to "rip" weapons out of enemy hands but now that I think about it, that would be a little too broken since if we have such refined control over it we could also "invert" the effect and push all metal away from us. Not to mention the possibility of crushing someone like Reinhardt inside of their armour.Magnets, literally fucking magic if we can get better control over them.
>>989039>Overwatch is in superfuture>Metals are literally in every character's outfit, sometimes entirely>We are mini-magnetoWhere we're going, we don't need magic
>>989039>>989047I regret pointing this out to anon's. I may have just broken this quest and everything in it.The only possibility for defeating us would be Hanzo using a wooden bow, assuming we didn't shoot him.Or someone with a polymer or other non-metallic weapon.
>>989060Not gonna lie, I thought Symmetra's stuff was all ceramic and polymers and hard light.
>>989060wouldn't we also have to get close enough to have any effect on metals?
>>989214Most of it is but at the end of the day, you do need to have a thing to project that hard light from and most non-metals won't handle high temperatures while also acting as a conductor. Which I imagine would be quite needed for constant projection.>>989231Magnets work across the entire universe. The only reason that magnets aren't the prime fundamental force (which is gravity, something else we also manipulate...), is because for every "positive" charge there is an equivalently sized negative.Thus we would always have an effect but I struggle to remember the accurate representation and rules for magnetism beyond that.
>>989275I forgot to mention that both of these charges effects the universe but technically cancel out on the universal scale for all purposes. Except ours I think, forgive me this is based off of half remembered knowledge from physics in school...
>>989275There are some variants of ceramic that might work.More importantly, she'd need to use a magnetic metal in order for us to affect it wouldn't she? If she uses an alloy of tungsten, her projectors wouldn't be in danger of burning out.
>>989308True but then her projectors would weigh a shit ton. Assuming it has any major components containing it.Still though, it is entirely possible that she has figured out a way around this but we will need to see how OP handles it.
>>989325Not gonna lie, Symmetra of all people being our counter just tickles me pink.
>>989602I think Ana could jerryrig up a ceramic and polymer rifle to fuck us up, but Symmetra and Ana are solid counters if this is the case.
>>989612Sombra might also be a hard counter later on, provided she doesn't get too close. Or we don't have a Faraday Cage up.
>>989673If we have all our magnetic stuff running there may be too much interference for Sombra to do anything without a physical connection to our equipment.
>>989704First Things first, let's build our new armor.
>>989738So our we just gonna paint over some old Overwatch Strike Team armor and carry over our current helmet, hood, and boots.
>>989738>>989758I'd like to see pic related, but TRON-ed up.
>>989758For now. We'll get a chance to pull off something more impressive after we study the Crusader armors.>>989824We're still basing our outfit on Red Hood's.
>>989843I thought we ditched the Hood look for more of a desert raider look?
>>989859There is much confliction
>>989872I guess we couldcombine them a bit? A shawl over our HUD visor's top, and ceramic armor beneath with raggedy brown/black clothes above for potential urban camo?
>>989887I'd be down for it, we'd have to see how the drawfags respond.
>>989904I was aiming to draw it, but I'd like for there to be a general census. It would also be rather rough as a drawing
I wonder if /qst/ has a drawthread.
>>989909put the fucking name on dumbass.
>>989909Not that I recall. You're gonna have to wander back to tg and ask there. I
>>989921I... I what anon?Did Widowmaker getcha?Speaking of which.>>983778You missed someone ;)
Something like this for Mask+hood?
>>990927If we'rw going Swirly Face, yeah.However, our normal mask should have armored Eyeslits.
>>991178Top right for the head is pretty awesom. I support that on top of the Red Hood thing we're trying.Where'd you find it?
>>991193The top right is Ana's mask in one of the comics. Guess she uses it when in hiding
>>991178I can dig that. Do we have any sort of emblem or anything like that though? Shit's important
>>991285Literally should be a tank destroyer, just like us
>>991285>>991707I can doodle up some Emblems and ideas if we can get solid ones up.I'd personally go for a compass crossed by a single shovel or something.
>>991178 Should add cobra commander retaliation to that pic.>>990986Don't like the Eyeslits idea.
>>992260I'd like a sort of visor that opens and closes depending on the lighting, in the shape of a DaftPunk helmet. So it sort of acts like an Astronaut helmet, but automated.
>>992280If the visor is just for the lighting we could have it dim instead so it protects our eyes, maybe expand it to act like a TV so we can make emotes like in >>986707
>>992280maybe have the helmet polarize instead of open up.
>>992280>>992342Is this for showing our face? Cause I'd rather remain a mystery behind the mask kind of character.
>>992398it's more so we don't go blind when shit gets bright. plus it'd also double as a welding helmet in a pinch.
>>990918Got FULTON'd by Big Boss, then Kaz kicked me off of Mother Base because of "reasons".Last bit was supposed to say "I don't recall much of the /tg/ drawfags migrating over here to /qst/ after that whole fiasco with the mods."
>>992701What fiasco? Elaborate if you could.
>>992701Nazimod was an issue in the making, but I don't go to /tg/ for the spess(ial needs) marines or the dakka, I go there for the "Soulsborne" system ideas and brainstorming threads that help DM/GMs get their minds going.And so, I came here for the best part of what /tg/ was to me, the story.Now, I have a baseline helmet up, and I just want input.
>>992712The short version: No quests allowed on the /tg/ board and mods will swing the hammer down if they catch someone starting a thread on /tg/.The longer version: A vocal minority on /tg/ were demanding that the questers GTFO and go to /qst/ since /qst/ was created for the purpose of hosting Quests. Unfortunately while /qst/ is great for most quests, a lot of QMs and players preferred remaining fully anonymous without the whole ID and namefaggotry that runs rampant every so often. Also killed a lot of the more popular Quests like "Crusader Quest" by causing the QMs to either wrap their games up quickly by skipping a lot of the side-questing material and skipping straight to the penultimate final chapter or some QMs just outright said "Screw this, I'm out" and killed their Quests like a baby dying from Sudden Death Syndrome. Also /tg/ quests tend to walk into the smut and gore side of things and /qst/ threads haven't been back to the realism side of questing with the whole "blue board" enforcement on the mods part. In the aforementioned Crusader Quest, you had the MC boning a lot of the ladies in the Levant with a bit of waifuing going on but nowadays you'd be hard pressed to find a QM on /qst/ who'd be willing to write a bit of smut at the risk of getting a temporary ban. Some QMs have gotten around it by linking to a Google Doc with the smut written there but that's really up to the QM's own discretion which requires a fair bit of effort on the QM's own part.
>>992752A Canadian maple leaf or at least a fair bit of red and gold splattered about the faceplate.
>>992797Is there any known symbol of Canada in the OverwatchVerse?
>>992797Please no leaf.
>>992797>>992814I can add in the leaf as part of an insignia if anons want.
>>992792"Smutbins" or "lewdbins" are the known alternative to quest smut, since it's legal if it's not in the thread itself. If the quest has smut in the thread itself, then it's in trouble.
>>992819I do not want the leaf, Rather something like >>992056 compass shovel or some other symbol that ties to discovery and adventure.Or maybe something related to our gravity/magnetic theme.
>>992819we already took moonboots, might as well grab the leaf.
>>992839Maybe a compass design with planets on the rim?
>>992792why the fuck is this a blue-board anyways. It doesn't help anything.
>>992839>>992847I just googled gravity symbol and there are quite some good ones, i suggest the circle with arrows connected and pointing to it.
>>992839>>992847I'm just not extremely confidant in my drawing abilities to get overly complex.>>992849Because the mod listened to the loudest voice, which contained complaints about smutquests. So the mod made it a blue(balls) board.
>>992870I swear to god the mods are fucking retarded some time. Bare minimum service done and arbitrary changes that don't fucking help anything. But hey, they do it for free.
>>992884Shitty volunteer work that causes fractions in userbases is still shitty volunteer work.
>>992898I understand that. It's just frustrating that the vocal minority decides to bitch at the janitors and mods until they set up stupid ass rules that don't actually improve anything. The fact that that method works is the worst part of it to me. I've seen it happen of just about every board I've browsed somewhat frequently and it gets tiring.
>>992752Save multiple versions of that pic so you can use it for several designs, if need be.
>>993057Already on it.I also have some simple designs for the icon and left one blank.
>>993137Why not just magnets? Gravity is just a form of magnetism as it is.Bear with me, I haven't done physics in 12 years and I'm an oldfag as it is.Magnetic Moment = pm
>>993162Those are Greek letters symbolizing magnetism (p) and the moment of magnetism is the subscript (m).
>>993137I like the top right but can I add my 2 cents in flair out the tips of the oval to make it look like its spinning if that makes sense
>>993162I'm thinking that Gravity is a kinetic force, while Magnetism deals with more electron/neutron stuffSo we might move from magnetism to anti-gravity later on, so I'm leaving more room for more ideas. I suppose I'm just expecting us to specialize.
>>993184Sure, I just had these as simple shapes so we could get a general direction.I tried drawing the top middle one with the lines rotated and it ended up looking like a Swastika, and I figured "Let's not step on that landmine."
>>993206>and I figured "Let's not step on that landmine."smart
>>993191I figured Gravity/Magnetism was a theme the MC/Bandit has been doing since a lot of the fancy moves we've done involved gravity defying jumps and let's face it we have a gun-blade thing that uses magnetic clips to change forms (unless it uses some sort of technosorcery involving a micro-fabrication unit that flash-creates ammunition and the blade itself).
Did Ravenking ever give an ETA for next session?
>>993907so who is your overwatch waifuis it Tracer
>>993946I know you didn't ask me, but I would have to say Zarya. Dat Russian goodness.
>>993946Probably Mercy.It makes sense, since he listed her as a character we pretty much NEEDED
>>993946>Not Mercy or Korean GoblinI give it a chance equal to Rousey not killing herself before new years
Because there still seems to be a bit of discourse on how we want our headgear to look, I'm gonna dump some neat designs that I found while drifting about on the Tumblr. All were drawn by the same artist and are basically redesigns of some of the existing characters' outfits, but it's definitely worth a look.First off, Soldier 76
>>994601Here's a couple of D.Va
>>994605And Tracer, looking a little bit of a mesh between Roadhog and a fighter jet
>>994607Mercy, with possibly one of the better designs we could use for our headgear--sans halo.
>>994609Hanzo, wearing something that looks like it was ripped straight outta Destiny
>>994613Widowmaker, in a samurai-inpsired mask (which might serve as some inspiration for how a Legendary reskin of our boy might work)
>>994618And last but not least Zarya, whose design I like best and there may be just the smallest iota of bias because she's my tank main
>>994623another source of inspiration you should look into is pioroberson.comHe's got this sorta OW type aesthetic on his stuff and his section marked IronSight has some stuff worth checking out.
>>994613I like this one the best if we're going to use a mask for Seeker.
>>994613I'd go with this one.
>Note to self:Add in a gasmask to the helmet
Posting simples.Any thoughts?
>>995726I like top right and bottom left the most.
>>995726Top left and bottom left are good, although you should make a version without any markings like top left in >>991178
>>995754>>995805I had this idea that the red cyrcle was like an auto-align HUD "pupil", but decided against it unless anons want that.
>>995726I like the top left one myself
>>995726I'd go for the bottom left.
>>995726I'm partial to the left ones.
>>995726none id rather not of some weird drawings on our helmet ; I'd rather have it just be a single solid thing
>>995754>>995805>>996081I guess the gasmask filtrator masks weren't what you anons wanted then. Okay.
>>996366Do a few blank ones with different colors.
ravenking lies he said we were gonna run today but nothing
>>996562Why don't you sue? I'm sure he just got roped into an unplanned celebration or something
>>996525Yep. Can you do one that's black and silver with Tron Lines?.
>>996525>>995726Personally, I'm not a fan of the featureless whole face mask--it's robotic, alien, and to be completely honest, I'm not sure it works with the sort of aesthetic ew're trying to create for our character. It's a very sci-fi thing, and I feel we're more grounded than that--after all, one of the traits of our character is that his gear is kinda cobbled together. To put in the game's terms, it's less Symmetra and Pharah and something closer to Soldier 76 or the Junkers.I'm more a fan of the 3/4 or 1/2 face mask--gives us a touch more humanity and makes us appear less like some robot. I know the whole featureless mask thing is supposed to help with our schtick with noone knowing our gender, but a half mask covering only the lower jaw structure should still do the job. Pair it with a hood and you very nicely have a guerilla look--combat chic, even.
>>996614I will try>>996757I've been toying with the idea of a tringular HUD-visor and I'll try drawing that too later on.
>>996757Honestly, I want to just keep these Different masks and ideas being thrown around as Different costumes.
>>996876Well looks like we're designing all the different skins
>>996876I suppose we could have different outfits depending on themission parameters.Urban camo for city missionsTan camo for desert missionsetc.
Another idea for potential insperation would be the masks from gears of war, worn by the carmine brothers or the mask of the "star-lord" from guardians of the galaxy since they have a pretty unique but feasible look.
>>996562>>996571That's pretty much what happened. I'll start up the next thread, won't do much tonight, but I'll be running most of tomorrow.
>>997066That's fine Raven, we'll be ableto manage a bit longer.
>>997066I thought the mask that the drawfag on Raven's twitter posted was p good
>>997066Curse you Ravenking!I had planned at some point to make an Overwatch themed quest but you beat me to it...Then again, after last quest's less than stellar end, I'm not sure I'm willing to put the effort to run another one on /qst/.Rant aside, I've found the quest enjoyable so far and I hope you'll keep this up; it's always great to see new content in this wasteland of a board.
>>997530Don't let this quest stop you, there's a couple Pokémon quests going on at the same time so it's not like you can't make another OW quest.
>>997530>>999489After TotemistQuest droppedoff themap and predicatable anime quests flooded in, I half gave up on /tg/ and with the split, I nearly stopped altogether.Re:Spider quest keeps me going, so it's nice to have an anchor again.
>>997152Part 3 is here, for anyone still lurking.
