Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, homeless mutant. Currently invisible. You decided to wait around at Sacred Tree Orphanage to observe a professional opinion on whatever the hell is going on, following some kind of doctor guy inside and listening in on his conversation. He appears to have told you – unknowingly, of course – that much of the frankly kinda crazy shit you’ve seen so far could very well be the result of airborne hallucinogens emanating from some unknown source within the building. Could that really be the truth of the matter? Was Layla just tripping balls? Were YOU just tripping balls? Or is there still a case for psychic shenanigans? Also, where the hell are Noriko and Kevin? As you dawdle on the landing and consider what you’ve just overheard, you hear footsteps on the other side of the door approaching. Looks like he’s leaving already. >Current Funds: $102.50>Hunger Level: 4>[ ] Stick around a bit, see if anything comes up. >[ ] Follow him out. >[ ] Write in.
>>27988579 http://pastebin.com/zFvxDsKi Remeber anons this list will be subject to change once we get more powers.Which was hinted at being in 2-3 powers so choose wisely to either bank or get closer to skipping ahead of the chapter.It is also should be known that we are gonna have to do more to get x-points becuase of leveling and all that jazz.

>[ ] Stick around a bit, see if anything comes up. >[ ] Follow him out. >[ ] Write in. The step aside as the doctor makes his way out, wearing the grey, sloped face of someone whose time has just been wasted. The teacher or owner or whoever follows sullenly in his footsteps, and you trace over hers. There’s little more this guy can tell you, it seems – if the place really is just pumped full of radical gases then that’s that. If not, it’s likely something that exceeds his experience. He’s let out and you slip around behind him, bracing yourself against the winter chill. The doctor is already striding off toward his car when the door slams shut behind you.>[ ] Regroup with Laura and Layla>[ ] Follow the doctor a while>[ ] Write in

>[X] Regroup with Laura and LaylaYou part ways with the grumpy old creature, materializing out of the air once you’re over the road and sure there’s no curious eyes waiting around to snapshot you. You sidle around the building chosen as your impromptu little lookout and get those sticky palms flexing again. You’re still taking it slow, but getting yourself to stick and unstick is already becoming reflexive, and you drag your way up the wall even quicker than last time.Pulling yourself over the eaves, you’re met immediately by Layla’s irritable stare. Laura sits a few diplomatic paces from her, watching the building. She fixes her eyes on you as you heave yourself onto the roof, staring expectantly. >[ ] “According to the doctor guy – he was a doctor, by the way – the building just has a gas problem.”>[ ] “Yeah, he didn’t know shit.

You’d have smelled something, right, Laura? And me too?” Laura cocks her head to the side, her stare remaining in place. You can’t help but notice that she tends to look at people’s mouths, rather than their eyes, when conversing. It’s kinda weird. “There are twelve odourless gases that, when combined with the right catalyst, can act as hallucinogens. Two with the potential to be lethal.”Okay. You did not know that. “You’re just a fount of depressing knowledge, aren’t you?” Mocks Layla, eying her peripherally.“Well, er, whatever the case…” Did things get tense up here or what? “…I’m heading back in there later…” >[ ] Ask Laura if she can catch their scents.>[ ] Ask Layla what her problem with Laura is.>[ ] Write in.

I hope you goys know what to do with your next X-point.
>[X] Ask Laura if she can catch their scents.>[X] Ask Layla what her problem with Laura is.You decide to keep quiet about the palpable corona of tension that buzzes around the two girls, just for the moment, and instead focus on the other set of problem children that you’ve been forced by life to deal with. In hindsight, it may not have been the best idea to send the recovering drug addicts off foraging for food. And give them money, too! If you weren’t a little bit afraid of getting your hand stuck to your face, you’d be slapping yourself silly right now.“So… looks like the others aren’t back…” That was sort of meant to start a conversation, but nobody follows the trails you’ve laid, and they flitter off awkwardly into nothingness. You clear your throat loudly. “Uh, Laura, can you catch their scent? They might’ve gotten into some kind of trouble…” She nods and rises to her feet, making her way over to the fire escape. You shift your weight to follow but stop when she puts her hand up, indicating a wordless but clear intent to go alone. “You should stay here with Layla.” Uh… “Okay…” Without a second glance, she steps down off the roof and out of sight, leaving you and Layla alone. Right, then. You sit in silence for a moment, before turning toward her. “Hey, what’s your problem with Laura, anyhow?”Were it possible for her eyes to spit at you, they’d have done so. It may have been mildly acidic, too, or perhaps flammable at room temperature. “I don’t have a particular problem with her.” >[ ] “Bullshit. What’s the deal?” >[ ] “Whatever.

>>27989779New Mutants got a new book eventually. Maybe NXM will too.you just have to hold out hope...for like 25 years
I feel like the looming power-cutoff when our x-gene finally settles is going to be a big problem. A few more x-points isn't going to allow us to keep up in terms of power with someone like Laura. We'd have no chance fighting Laura's handlers, or Spider-man, or even someone like Wilson Fisk if it came to it. Our number of x-points is more than good enough, but we bought so many different powers that we're still a low-brow hero. Admittedly, we're just a hobo. We're not expected to be heroic. But If Laura can't protect herself from the people chasing her, I can guarantee that we'll fail her when the time comes, because we're not nearly as strong as she is.
>>27989947Which is why people are voting on banking to at least prolong the inevitable.
>>27989947Which is why i think we need to use our powers alot more now.
>[X] “Whatever. I guess you expect me to believe that you’re actually twelve, too, despite no twelve-year-old in history having ever uttered the words ‘fount of depressing knowledge’?” “Whatever.” Well, you guess that’s fair. You’re not buying it in the least but you’ve no right to press further. Even after feeding her, and giving her a place to stay, and taking some time out of your busy schedule to – “I guess you expect me to believe that you’re actually twelve, too, despite no twelve-year-old in history having ever uttered the words ‘fount of depressing knowledge’?”The fixes you with another toxic stare. Unfortunately for her she is a tiny person and not really all that intimidating at all. You shrug off her attempt to knife you with her eyes for a few moments before she finally gives up and heaves out a long, exasperated sigh. “Fine.” She leans forward, tucking her legs in and rubbing her arms intermittently. “I’m thirteen. But thirteen is technically a teen so it’s not as great for sympathy.” Hah. How adorably Machiavellian (yes, you know who Machiavelli was, surprise surprise).>[ ] “I don’t think you were fooling anyone.

>>27989969>>27989981We're not nearly as strong as JJ's sister, either. Not in terms of physical strength, or in terms of combat ability. I'm not sure what we're going to do from here. Between Creeper's connection to Fisk and Hydra, which he seems determined to push on us, and Laura's connection to the X-project, our involvement with Jack smuggling, our involvement with Spider-man and the fact that we've almost definitely made a very powerful enemy of Mr. Negative, we're in waaaay over our heads.
>>27990000We all know its banking.
>>27990000So long as you cast your vote for bankers.
>>27990031our only survival option is to stand with the avengers next time NY gets invaded.
>>27990031So it is agreed to banking then, that atleast lessens our earlier mistake of just buying powers when they were needed.
>>27990052Speaking of which.>>27989984Crusty you said you might change claws for the better.Is this pre-powers lock or after the powers lock in.
>>27990043Or to use gratuitous mental stress on the same level as JJ's sister's death to unsettle our x-gene again. Could work. Might count as a re-spec if we've been exposed to certain powers and are desperate enough.
>>27989984>[ ] “So, why’re you so eager to throw in with a bunch of hobos? If ghosts are the problem, I’m pretty sure there’s an Avengers hotline. Captain America is probably much better at this than I am.”>[ ] “Right. And the problem with Laura is…?”
>>27990064After. The claws are changing into a whole different powerset.>>27990000I... will allow it.>writing
>>27990068This could destroy relationships levels and is basically a start over, but in a different area.
>>27990080Sweet. Banking it is. catch you guys some other time
So here's a question. Once we've banked, what should we concentrate in? Ability to bail our friends out with invisibility rank 4 or something more offensive? I personally think we should either go with invisibility 4, strenght 2 or electrostatic touch 2.
So is anyone up for buying a cheepo phone for us and Laura.
>>27990085I hope mentioning Captain America didn't win because in a earlier thread she blamed him for all her troubles and bringing him up will cause her to fly of the handle. I am certain it is a trap option.
>>27990090>Once we've banked, what should we concentrate in?I say we should bank it and save up for either Invisibility, Enhanced Agility or Senses.
>>27990101I don't mind, we probably should pick ones up tomorrow after work though with the moneys we earned.
>>27990085Maybe there's some sort of shock-reset from the death of someone you have a high enough relationship level with? Well, this is all speculation. And it's not like we could let anything that bad happen just to re-spec our relatively shitty powers.I think we need to focus on learning exactly what our powers are if we're going to get strong enough to defend our allies.
>>27990106shit, you're right.Withdrawing my meniton of Cap'n here >>27990022
>>27990187how about Iron Man instead?
>>27990090>Vampiric TouchIt is basically a quicker healing factor that can be used for offense, and perfect for grappling.>Light ArmourArmour that can take small arms fire and it doesn't hurt agility.(high levels increase effectiveness) Great for when stealth is compromisedSo here is my top pick if we choose on buying instead of banking.This is for banking.Level two options>HEALING FACTORQuicker healing(all around good)>ELECTROSTATIC TOUCH Stronger touch.(basically a stronger taser which isn't bad.)>ENHANCED AGILITYWe can actually walk on a rope with out rolling now.>ENHANCED STRENGTHExtra strength is always good.Level 3 options>INVISIBILITYYou can now make people invisible >ENHANCED SENSES Better senses around and now we can "find" the creeper.Messed up in the last post paralytic touch and pheromone manipulation are good, but lets consider them at a later date.
>>27990085>Weapon X decides to deploy "Kill trigger scent""Eyes, mouths, tentacles, it produced whatever it needed."
>>27990208I don't think considering another touch is a good idea.
>>27990208leaning towards Senses, then agility, then healing
>>27990232Vampiric touch is an amazing ability once you think about it.Plus its a list i posted several times and changed a bit each thread.Right now since we are banking i'm hoping we get either agility or invisibility, though being able to tell where the creeper is a good powers as well. hell all the powers we can upgrade right now are pretty good except claws which should get better after our x gene settles.
My personal priority Invisibility 4 > Strenght 2 > Electrostatic 2 or vampiric touch 1 > Agility 2 Reason why strenght goes before Electrostatic/Vampiric touch is because Strenght 2 allows us to lift up to 10 tons.
>>27990232I agree. I'm also not sure why everyone is against phasing so much. Its not top tier level 1, but has higher potential after the lock.

Captain America is probably much better at this than I am.” >[X] “Right. And the problem with Laura is…?” “Why are you doing this, though?” You’re raising one eyebrow so high, it’s liable to fly off your head. Why extra sympathy? With hobos of all people. “I mean, why’re you so eager to throw in with a bunch of hobos? If ghosts are the problem, I’m pretty sure there’s an Avengers hotline. Captain America is probably much better at this than I am.”She frowns at you, alternating her grip on her arms somewhat. Is that something she does when she’s nervous, or is she just cold? She seems like she’s always rubbing them. “Firstly, I know there’s an Avengers hotline. I’ve been ringing it since I was eight. It’s just a machine on the other end. I’m pretty sure the world has to be ending for them to actually answer.”Fair point. You’re pretty sure you used to do that when you were young(er), too. “Secondly, the Avengers are total losers. Except for Wonder Man.” Really? Wonder Man? Everyone knows he’s only there because Thor got pissed at– “Thirdly, I’m not ‘throwing in’ with you guys. We’re neighbours. I live next door.”
>>27990208>>27990232Word. We can't be stacking touches, and especially offensive touches at that. Doesn't make any sense and is throwing good X-Points after bad.I'm for getting our core powers to 5. I think we should grab Phasing 1 before it's routelocked as well.
>>27990275My desired path isInvisibility,agility,senses, and then strength.After that we can focus on the other powers.
>(2/2)You shift uncomfortably. You’d note that she’s stayed pretty much at your place so far, and that the apartment she’s claimed as her own has been a crater for some time, but, somehow, you don’t imagine that would go down particularly well. “Alright.” You can let all that fly. “What’s the trouble with Laura, then?” She screws up her face at you. “She’s a giant buttface.” That’s… kinda harsh. And she’s definitely not a giant anything, she’s totally tiny. “She’s what, two years older than me, but she treats me like a child, and she doesn’t believe anything I say, and she thinks you should’ve just taken me back to that shithole.

>>27990340I want our choice to be between "touch him to deal with him" and "Melt through the floor"Not "touch him to deal with him" and "touch him to deal with him less effectively but with a stamina boost"
>>27990340There's no stamina problem, there's "the powers are making me go crazy," problem.Two totally different problems.
>>27990329We need to explain to her that Laura is a clone of someone much older, and that 'needless exposure' means that the US government is going to hunt her down like a dog and kill all of her friends.
>>27990368We seem to run out of energy a lot, plus this power helps us weaken an enemy and feed to our own power reserves.
>>27990304If it changes so that we can phase while invisible (which it probably will) it'll be a must have power.
>>27990393Which hasn't yet been confirmed and i have seen what assuming something in a quest can get you.

>>27990393It never will, actually.Being both phased and invisible at the same time is just way too OP. Ghost can't do that, and he still manages to give major players like Iron Man problems. The only character who CAN do both, IIRC, is an X-Man, and she's never brought up for the same reason Elixir is condemned to between-panels limbo - she breaks storylines.

>>27990452Well this is good to know, and would hopefully stop some of the more desperate phrase voters by stopping them from assuming this.
>>27990304Well, there were three reasons for this. 1st reason being that people wanted to stick to the theme once it was established. 2nd reason being that many of the 1st lvl powers offered a significant advantage immediately and we didn't think we were in any rush to acquire the phasing. 3rd reason is that with the cost of getting phasing to good and working order, we could acquire one of the most broken abilities, the spidersense.That's at least why I think people were reluctant to get phasing.
>>27990423yes taser hands make vampire hands redundant. I vote for improving an existing power but if I had to pick a new one, none of the touch powers would make the list.
>>27990329She wants you to go back because you're less likely to die horribly there. Her minds on survival, for all of us.
>>27990488Your forgot reason 4,5 and 64.It seemed redundant to many people.5.some of the phase voters got desperate and tried to shoe horn it in a lot of places.6.Some people liked seeing the phase voters lose.
>>27990505True, taser hands are good, plus it was a suggestion.So whats your desired upgrade path?
>>27990329>“She’s a giant buttface.” That’s… kinda harsh.

You *are* causing us to needlessly expose ourselves as, in case you did not know, the US government is in the process of rounding up people like us and throwing us in camps.

It takes a great deal of self-cajoling to tone it back.“…And Laura’s just looking out for me. Probably you too.” You pause, Laura’s inscrutable stare materializing before your mind’s eye, and add: “I think. Look, ghosts are… kind of tough to swallow. The problems Laura and I deal with are always, always people.” The fire crackles in the air. You sail over the lake into oblivion. The M is fresh and hot on your shoulder, smoke coiling from seared flesh. “Believe me, people can be way worse than ghosts. People are the worst things in the world when they put their minds to it. And there are a few particularly nasty ones that don’t like us, alright?” She stops rubbing her arms for a moment, scrunching up like an armadillo, her chin resting on her knees. A flat, disgruntled expression hangs across her face, as if she’s mad at not being entirely mad. She starts squeezing her arms again soon enough, though, her brow furrowing inward.“I knew you’d take her side.” Whaaat. “Did you guys rob a bank together or something?

>>27990879Laura's told us a bit about weapon X. She compared its influence to the US Gov't, iirc. She told us that she was made as a killing machine, though she's not necessarily designed for political assassination. She might have been a mutant-killer in this universe.
>>27990698The term is "fucking," and no.The evidence available to me is that Laura is a good, reliable, friend, and you are an obnoxious little troublemaker who is extremely unappreciative of people who are helping her /for no fucking reward whatsoever/ because they aren't all doing it with an ecstatic smile. Obviously I will take her side.
>>27990879not all of it.We know she's a cloned weapon hunted by the PMC that created her.

And would we really be here if we’d robbed a bank?” “You could be hiding out.” She speculates, grinning faintly. “You could've buried the money somewhere to wait till the heat dies down. Then it’s off to Mexico!” This time you’re the one furrowing your brow.“You have a pretty overactive imagination.” You sigh heavily. “Getting out of the state would require dodging the Sentinels, anyhow. If they catch us it’s off to the camps. You get that that’s part of why we’ve gotta keep a low profile, right?” Sort of, anyhow. The camps are mostly for ‘insurgents’, but the authorities have managed to stretch the definition pretty damn far.

>(1/2)>[X] “You really don’t.”>[X] Write in.You can’t help but treat her to a look of total disdain. Just for a second, before you realize what you’re doing. You’re sure she caught, it though. “You really don’t.” “Whatever.” She looks up from her arms. “You can’t tell me”– “I did too, once. Look where I am now. Look at”– You tug on frayed hem of your second-hand hoodie –“this shit. I can’t look anyone in the eye. I live in piss and crap and junk. Every other person in the country wants to kill me or ship me off to an island or is afraid that I’ll drop a fucking meteor city on them.” Yeah, thanks for that, Magneto. What a great idea that was. She tightens her grip on her arms, rubbing up and down in silence for a moment. Her eyes stare off the roof, through the sky, lackadaisically empty. “I know it’s stupid.” She says, finally. “I know about the camps. But… after everything burned… it was all I could think about, for days. I wanted to be a mutant so badly. I didn’t talk to anyone or pay attention in those stupid classes or listen to their dumb psychiatrist guy… I just thought about one day discovering that I could, like, bring people back. From death.”
>(2/2)Her knuckles whiten around her arms. She stares as if into a fixed point in time and space. “That’s what I’d want my mutant power to be. I used to dream about it, for nights on end. There are mutants that can throw asteroids around, right? There are mutants that can bend time? So why can’t there be one that can bring back the dead?”There’s a strange sense of certainty in her voice, like her shaky-at-best logic is actually ironclad. Like this could come true a minute from now, a day from now, a month from now.“In my dreams that mutant was me, and I’d… I’d bring everyone back.” Okay. Right. >[ ] “I’ve never heard of a mutant that can raise the dead…” >[ ] “Chances are you’d get a third eye that shoots butterflies, or something.”>[ ] “…Look, I know what it’s like to lose family, but you can’t just bring people back…” >[ ] Let her just be crazy and weird in silence.>[ ] Write in.

>>"Ain't a single person in the whole world that doesn't wish that, Layla."
On a completely unrelated note, anyone have a problem with suggesting Noriko might want to dye her hair something less memorable in case the group ever does need to drop everything and run to a new hidey hole? Bright blue hair is a pretty easy identifier to work with...

>[X] “Chances are you’d get a third eye that shoots butterflies, or something.”>[X] “…Look, I know what it’s like to lose family, but you can’t just bring people back…” >[X] Write in.“There isn’t a single person in the whole world that doesn’t wish that, Layla.” You remember that when you were a kid, you wanted to fly. That was the coolest mutant power, obviously. Flying could take you anywhere. All the coolest superheroes fly. Thor, Captain Marvel, Human Torch (Jim Hammond, not the Storm guy)… even the fake ones in comics, like Superman. As far as unrealistically optimistic power-fantasies go, however, you’d say that Layla outdoes you by several leagues. Which is kinda understandable. When you first realized you could turn invisible, you rather distinctly remember wishing that it was something different, something that would let you take out all your anger and bile on anyone who so much as looked at you funny. Back then you wanted someone – anyone – to pay so badly. Now… now you’re just tired. “I know what it’s like to lose family, Layla, but you can’t just sit there and hope that one day they just pop back. That’s not how these things work.” At least, not for mere mortals like yourselves. How many times has Cap ‘died’ now? And Iron Man? Shit, you’re pretty sure there was a whole big thing about The Human Torch (the Storm guy, not Jim Hammond) being dead for a while. “If you go full mutant tomorrow, you’d probably just sprout a third eye that, like, shoots butterflies or something.”“I know.” She answers, quietly, rubbing her arms again. “I know.

How long can you hand out papers on a sidewalk for $60? How long can you keep Creeper at bay? How long can you dodge Laura’s pursuers? How long can you keep saying “no” to a shot of Jack? Keep one step ahead of winter? Keep fed? Keep well? Keep alive?Do you keep this up till you’re twenty? Till you’re thirty? Till you’re sixty and bearded and can barely stand the cold, and the boys from Mutant Control take you off the streets? You wish pretty fuckin’ bad that things were different. You stretch out your hand in offering of a truce. Layla stares at it for a moment, before grudgingly knotting her fingers between yours. Time passes. The sky deepens, orange turning to red, grey to darkest blue. The clouds overhead all but disappear and snow becomes a pale, silvery corona, embalming the city in a light like stars and milk. It makes you think of a patient, still and thoroughly stupefied, lying prone upon an operating table. Eventually, you hear the fire escape rattle, and Laura – followed by Noriko and then by Kevin – pulls herself onto the roof. They look terrible. Kevin is sporting a huge, swollen bulge in the place of his eye and appears to have been cut across his cheek. Noriko’s knees and elbows are scraped pretty bad and she’s holding her arm tight to her chest.>[ ] “Holy fuck, what happened?”>[ ] “I’m going to assume this was [insert]’s fault.”>[ ] “Please tell me you didn’t try to buy drugs.

>(1/2)>[X] “Holy fuck, what happened?”“Holy fuck, what happened!?” Christ, you hope it wasn’t drugs. You really hope it wasn’t drugs. You’d like to think you trust these guys, but god damn, if it was a drugs thing you might explode or something. “They were involved in an altercation.” States Laura, setting down a small plastic bag – groceries, you guess? – and standing aside. For good reason, it seems. Noriko’s hair is flashing with tiny arcs of static electricity, and her flesh occasionally glows from within, streaks of neon blue flashing under her skin. Layla gets up and moves toward her, but is stopped in her tracks by a warning hand. “No, not…” She flinches when she speaks. “Not a good time to be touching me.” Kevin sits down, pressing a clump of snow to his eye. “Noriko blew out some guy’s electrics.” She stares at him pointedly. “Uh, by mistake, of course. We were just leaving this 7-Eleven and then, I dunno, what happened?” “I just got startled.” She says. “But I guess I’d been absorbing too much, ‘cause it arced out and cut all the lights. Then the owner started screaming at us and these guys outside came into check up on all the fuss…” “He screamed that she was a mutant and one of them went total fucking ape on Noriko. Knocked her down. When I got in the way he tried to punch me in the face, and… well… I didn’t have time to hold it back…” Oh. Oh no…

I guess because some guy hit me with a pipe or something.” “It was a bike pump, I think.” Interjects Noriko. “Oh, okay. I couldn’t really see it so good, due to, y’know…” He indicates toward his horribly bruised eye. “I guess they did some kicking and stuff and then Noriko was picking me up…” “Yeah, I kind of set some clothes on fire so they’d back up. It worked pretty good till a bunch of ‘em chased us down." She flinches her way through about half of a smile, easing herself down a fair distance from the rest of the group. "I think they winged me with a padlock or something, something metal, and I scraped up my arms on the pavement.” “I think they’d have killed us if Laura hadn’t gotten there.” Notes Kevin, grimly. “Yeah. Or I’d have exploded or something.” >[ ] “Shit, how bad are you hurt?” >[ ] “Uh, how did Laura get rid of them?” >[ ] “…You’re not in danger of exploding now, are you?” >[ ] Write in.

>[X] “Shit, how bad are you hurt?” >[X] “Uh, how did Laura get rid of them?” “Shit.” Shit, those assholes. You hope Kevin dusted that guy’s whole hand. This is exactly why Layla should be careful what she wishes for. “How bad is the hurt?” Kevin shrugs. “My eye really hurts. Like, a lot. I can stand I guess.” Noriko has closed her eyes and is breathing in slow, steady lengths, periodically discharging jolt after jolt of bright blue electricity from her fingertips.“I feel like one bigass bruise.” So nothing’s broken, then? At least there’s that. You turn to Laura. “How’d you get rid of them?” She answers immediately, and in great detail:“Only two of the assailants were armed, so little force was required. Three were disabled via shattering strikes to the femur. Two were rendered unconscious, both by repeated blunt trauma to the head. One assailant possessed a firearm, and as such it was necessary to quickly disarm him”– ohgod you hope she isn’t using that term literally – “by severing his trigger finger and roughly 40% of his hand.” “Yeah that was pretty intense.” Notes Kevin.>[ ] Oh shit you gotta leave.

They’re out to get you because you have scaly hands and weird eyes. And now they’re out to get you because your friend cut some dude’s hand off. And even if he deserved it, they’re still coming for you. “Laura.” She stops halfway down the fire escape, glancing up at you. “It might be a good time to start looking for a new place to stay. Just in case we have to move.” She nods again and vanishes over the edge. One by one, they all leave, till it’s just you and the snow and the encroaching, viciously cold night. You hunker down and smoulder with barely-suppressed rage, letting it stoke up a warmth in your veins. You wish you could be somewhere less crazy. You wish all these morons with their bike pumps and their hate would just roll over and die. You wish Thor would kill them all or something. You wish this kind of shit didn’t have to happen. A tiny, quiet hope blooms like a fire in your chest. You kind of, you sort of, you maybe hope that someone really is hurting these kids. Because you wouldn’t mind clawing someone’s face up right now.

Hey Crusty! I want to run a Homeless Mutant-style quest with some friends with the exact same system you use for these threads (X points, D20 rolls for conflict resolution, et cetera). Any tips?

>>27994638Cool. Anyhow, I donno, depends how detailed things are getting. Would your friends be making their own characters sheet? In a format like this it's good to watch the PC's development and try to tailor their background to it while keeping it adhered to a general concept or plot point, but that might not be applicable if your players are creating every detail of their characters. You may want to streamline the powers selection a bit. If not, make sure there's a reason why everyone's sprouting random powers, even if that reason isn't immediately apparent.Also, set down what your version of the MU looks like. This can take some time since there's SO MUCH STUFF to account for, but it's worth it.

You make your way up quickly, palm after palm. This is easy. You could do this shit with your eyes clo– You tug yourself up and feel a chunk of stone dislodge under your grip. Gravity winds its way over your shoulders, bearing you down. You flail out to grasp at whatever you can, but nothing lends you purchase, and you plummet a short distance down.

>>27995251Your healing factor is kinda weak, so contamination is something that could happen.

>>27995260You realize that every party in X-Men either turns into a massive brawl or a quick location change induced mini arc. I don't mind taking Laura to the Savage Lands, but I don't think Nori, Kev and Layla are really up for it yet.

>>27995468Or if some writer had a little book show up entitled: The Life and Times of J.J. Green by C. Jay
>>27995323Actually I answered that there was something like the massacre. It wasn't as successful, though, as there are way more Morlocks and they're not as centralized in this universe.Also, >Dinosaur EmpathyHA HA why would I ever make Savage Land Survival Quest this simple?The way you've pushed your power chart is pretty interesting, though. Someone in this thread actually came close to predicting a few elements of it. Sort of.

>>27995468you mean an omake?how about the life of a secret mutant? Might I suggest pic?
>>27995409I sorta assumed that the Deadpool encounter would be about him spending most of the time ranting why the fuck we didn't pick phasing.

>>27995648its just that's also our food money and I can see Noriko and it not getting along too well.I say at least one more payday.
>>27995519Probably not. Though I guess it's always warm.Mostly the Mk V model. There are also a number of lighter Sentinel Squad Armours in use.Nope.Being wise an' shit.DoFP happened. Rachel is in this timeline and leads an X-team. Senator Kelly came really, really close to death.

It's okay.The GotG are actually bigger in this universe. They have a lot of members. You know shit all about them, though.The Defenders are Valkyrie, Hellcat, She-Hulk, Namorita, Songbird, Hellstrom and technically Namor (he, like, never shows up.

>>27996117We become a Mutant Rights Activist/Figure. We start by selling our story to the Bugle.The angle of starting out a kid on the run with no one, before taking in a bunch of kids on the run with no one else is pretty heart wrenching, mutant or otherwise.
>>27996114Yes and yes.>>27996117Star Lord, Nova and RR.Thread archived, by the by.
>>27996143We need a name... Is the name Gecko taken.
>>27996242We could be Geico
>>27996159What is Howard the Duck doing? If he's part of the list of potential meetings, I fear for his life when he meets our resident hobos
>>27995850>>He murdered the fuck out of Red Skull, stole all his research, and eventually managed to get it working.>mfw Brotherhood of Mutants with Cap American powersetHOMO SUPERIOR COMING THIS WAY
>>27996257>We could be GeicoYou stupid ape.
>>27996268He's just, y'know, around.He hasn't been on a Random Event chart yet.
>>27996312Speaking of those charts, mind showing us one?I assume you have multiple ones for each occasion. Though I could be expecting too much from you.
>>27996356I actually don't have multiple set ones. Instead I have a long-ass list of events and I throw a bunch together for each roll.
>>27996159>Do Draculas (Vampires) exist in a hidden society/masquerade just out of view of the rest of the world, as both vicious predators of the night & as civilized benign individuals subsisting off of missing blood donations from hospitals?>Is the Blade the Daywalker killing Draculas and Blaculas.>Have Blade and Elsa BloodStone ever worked together?>Did Warren Worthington III have his stint as "the Avenging Angel" of NY?>Did the Golden Age "Angel" exist, the brightly dressed Vigilante/Detective.>What is Dazzler doing?

I probably spelled his name wrong.>Is Hank Pym getting counseling?>Is Wasp a Mutant or a Mutate thanks to Pym Particles.>Does Whirlwind not self identify as Mutant, just as a supervillain?
>>27996413Then ignore my request.
If JJ survives long enough to be an adult, I totally see him becoming a Private Inspector.
>>27996473Business Card: JJG Private InvestigatorX Postive, Posses Unfair Biological Advantages in this field. Under frequent Review/Professional Scrutiny because I'm a Mutant so you know I'm always on the up and up for your job.We could use people not trusting mutants as a guarantee that we'll always do the job within the letter boundaries of the law...because we don't want to wind up in a camp.
>>27996473With our hobo family working as our partners! It's perfect!...I would play a Quest of this.
>>27996418Just saying 'masquerade' tempts me to make V:tM canon in this universe. But yes Draculas exist.Blade is out there.Elsa and Blade have worked together once. It was actually sort of a slow day, nothing special.Yes.YES.She was performing live up until five years ago. Eventually the hate got too strong, though, and now she's [location unconfirmed].Volstagg is sure to be adventuring on Midgard at some point.Yes, DOOM pays his debts for he is a man of honour.Yes, yes, yes. It makes people feel confused and angry.Yep. Sort of.Yeah, and it's run by the original board.Cloud 9 has her powers.The Baron is participating in a [CLASSIFIED] to [CLASSIFIED] with [CLASSIFIED].Pym's on the main Avengers team. He's too busy for counseling!Wasp is a closet mutant.Whirlwind is in the Brotherhood.
>>27996473Technically he is an adult.Eighteen yo. That's legally a grown up person.
>>27996580How old are some of these characters, like the Dazzler for instance?
>>27996685>Technically he is an adult.I meant like early 30s
>>27996580>Is Frank Castle the Punisher right now?>If yes, what would Frank do to Creeper if he could catch him.>Have we thanked you enough for this quest, because we should thank you more.>Has Mojo tried to get his channel picked up by an earth based cable network? Does he have a Youtube Channel?
>>27996685>>27996517>>27996521JJ PI Quest has a timeskip so our youngest member in our ex-hobo team is 18. I would play this religously. As long as it's not in the Noir universe, that place is weird.
>>27996738 Answered in previous thread (yes)What he does too all (stop right there) criminal scum
>>27996692Most of the older X-Men/Avengers would be in their early thirties or late twenties now. Dazzler is 28. >>27996738Yes.Kill him an' stuff. Probably in a very bloody way. There could be blowtorches involved.Yes, thank me forever, smear me, oh yes.Mojo has had limited success in this universe, but quite a lot in others. Due to multiversal mechanics, wires sometimes get crossed and this has resulted in his Youtube Channel being accessible on certain days.
>>27996859AHAH!>Has Longshot swept Dazzler off her feet?
>>27996859Wha- characters get older? I guess it really is an alternate universe!
>>27996760>>27996760Spidey was coolas was the game
>>27996924They probably only seem like they've gotten older...most should probably be older than they are...Franklin Richards exists...therefore SLIDING TIMESCALE BECAUSE HE CAN'T GROW UP.
>>27996891Yes, this is something that happened.
>>27996931But that's because he's Spidey. Vulture was messed up.
>>27996949did vision and scarlet witch get marred?
>>27996949So who is spider man's love interest this time Mary jane. Black Cat, Dr.Dolittle, Gwen Stacy, or some random hoe
>>27997040does his love interest have a pet space dragon that is a spy?
>>27997040cross fingers for Chat
