Kamen Rider WAR Quest, Episode 2>The Honorable Battlefield?>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kamen%20Rider%20War%20Quest>Your name is Julian Vant, a rebel against Decade’s tyrannical world. However, as it is, you’re also an enemy of the State- in this case [Foundation X]. After going to find Emily Straits at a research facility after she didn’t meet at the rendezvous point, you discover her in front of a strange [Stone Coffin] with a [Driver] in hand. >Confronting her, she reveals that she has betrayed you and your group to Foundation X- luring you into a trap in return for a [Driver] of her own. Nearby was the corpse of a man, undoubtedly a member of Foundation X- a [Gaia Memory] in hand anda [Lost Driver] around his waist. >Desperately trying to stop Emily, you roundhouse kick her into the Coffin only for two things to happen- the coffin begins to unseal and Emily transforms into [Kamen Rider BLACK KNIGHT]. As monsters begin to form from silver coins in the coffin, you grab three [Mysterious Coins] and leave, chasing after a mysterious object that left in a stolen car.>The object turned out to be a Flying arm! But, as you chased it into town, your tire was shot out by ]Kamen Rider RANGER], giving you two options- use the driver and memory you took or huddle and pray for a miracle.>Julian Vant decided to take a stand.The [Lost Driver] wraps itself around your waist, the belt tight but not uncomfortable so. You take a deep breath as you hold the [Gaia Memory] in your hand. There’s no going back now…Stepping out of the car, you face down [Kamen Rider RANGER]- a brown duster over his black form- a [Driver] unlike your [Lost Driver] around his waist- is he a cyborg or merely a different style of Kamen Rider? Either way, it’s unusual for [Foundation X] to not have a [Gaia Memory] based Rider. >[1/2]
RANGER’s red visor stares at you, his modulated voice coming out of his ‘mouth.’“So, that’s the way it’s going to be?”There’s resignation there- with your [Driver] you’re no longer just a rebel- you’re a direct competitor and he has to honor that- well in theory. Pressing the priming switch on your memory, an electronic voice calls out the memory’s affinity.“ETERNAL”Twirling the memory in your fingers, you maneuver it into the right position to slam it into your driver as it hums with energy. Across from you, RANGER attaches his shotgun to his hip via a magnetic clamp, letting his arms rest at his sides like an old Wild West cowboy.Breathing deeply, you slam the driver into its activated position as lines start forming across your body, turning you into a conduit for the [Eternal Memory]’s powers. You feel a surge of power and heat from your breast as armor forms over you waveringly before solidifying- porcelain white, barring the metallic blue flames on your arms. A black, protective cowl and cape forms along with your armament- the [Eternal Robe] and [Eternal Edge] respectively. You can feel it attached to your leg, where it holsters itself. The knife has a [Maximum Drive] slot, giving it a finishing attach, along with the [Maximum Drive] slot on the belt formed by your [Lost Driver]However, as you are now-using either one of those will end your transformation. It’s a final, finishing technique- you should only use one if it’ll, for sure, give you victory. Across from you, RANGER cracks his neck audibly and tenses his fingers, music playing over speakers nearby to that of an old Wild West showdown. This guy’s overdoing it.But even as you think it, RANGER’s visor glows as his modulated voice spits out one word.“Draw.”And his hand shoots towards his gun.>[TERRITORY] BATTLE START>HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE?
>>28073319...Stab him?I don't know what you're asking for.
>>28073319Eternal doesn't have any ranged attacks, as far as I recall, aside from Maximum Drives. We're at a bit of a disadvantage. We need to get into melee fast. Let's swirl the cowl forward and fling it off at the same so it floats in the air briefly and blocks his view of us. That should keep him from getting off an early shot. Or at least any accurate shots. Then we jink off to the side and rush him with the Eternal Edge.
>>28073730Oh, and I can't believe I forgot: If we manage to knock him back with our attack, use the opportunity to pose and give our catchphrase. We can't use Daido's phrase, though. Anyone got any ideas for an opening line suitable for a rebel agitator like Julian?
>>28073700Basically, a plan of action for combat/what actions would you like to take.like >>28073730
>>28073730This. A classic tactic. We may take a shot or 2, but its better than 6
>>28073830YOUR HEAD IS ABOUT TO REBEL FROM YOUR SHOULDERS.I kid. Maybe.
>>28073830How JUSTICE are we as a Kamen Rider?This is important to our catchphrase.Are we honor incarnate? Are we a judge of the evil?Or are we simply and overwhelmingly ETERNAL?
>quick question- which hand do you want to be Julian's dominant hand?Left or right?
>>28074088Ambidextrous, and all the issues that come with it.If that's not an option, then we train to fight ambidextrously.
>>28074088Is that very important? The only thing I can see it determining is how easy it is to insert Memories into the Driver. Let's say left handed, I guess, because the Eternal Driver's slots are on the right side.
>>28074088>>28074088LEFT, so we can have a killer left hook.
>>28073830>>28074038Hm....We should be HIGHLY JUSTICE."You... Are no ally of Justice." Maybe?>>28074088Hm.... Left, I'd say. More difficult for people who are trained to fight righties.
>>28074230>I will defeat you with this hand, this hand closest to my heart!
>>28074230>"You... Are no ally of Justice."That's very showa of you.I like it.Stronger and Black were my first Riders, and Kabuto and W after that, so I've got a big soft spot for justice and posturing in my riders.how are you guys enjoying Gaim, by the way?
>>28074280....I like it. >>28074311Showa Era best Era. Gaim is decent so far. Dare I say... Good.Also, reminder of our final boss.
>>28074230We can also pull the good old "Ah but you see I am actually left handed" which is always fun.
I am not familiar with Kamen rider in the least. How fucked am I if I try to participate in this quest?... since I'm already kind of confused.
>>28074389Hey I'm just figuring this shit out as the quest progresses. It's interesting so far.We at least won't have to worry about meta gaming.
>>28074389>Average BQ readerCheck out the last thread and lurk a little. Best way to get a grasp on this one.
>>28074389It looks like medium to high levels of fucked. It's an AU mash-up of every modern series (at the least, the Showa era Riders might make an appearance, too). So while we should be prepared for unexpected elements like this Kamen Rider Ranger we're currently fighting, some knowledge of the franchise is essential. Like, last quest we opened the coffin of the Greeed (not a typo). It's obvious from contextual cues that it's significant, but without watching Kamen Rider OOO you wouldn't know why.
>>28074389>>28074442considering it's DECADE, the great crossover Rider?And considering we have a belt and rider form only seen in a couple of movies?Just visit /m/ if want to learn about any rider series quick.
>>28074498I think it would be awesome if this thread furthered crossboard traffic from /m/ and /tg/. I feel like they're long lost brother boards
>>28074389Kamen Rider is a super hero who rides a motorcycle and kicks monsters to death. He has a transformation belt that gives him bug armor.There you go.
>>28073730>>28073830This seems good.
>>28074389>>28074442Here is what you need to know. Each Rider has what amounts to a magic belt. It lets you turn into a superhero. Ours is a Lost Driver. It can be used with any, note this very important part, refined Gaia Memories.We passed up a chance for best driver because someone got scared about DESIRE, which is really not a bad thing. As for canon...Well, we're all fucked anyway since Cosgroove's messed with the world enough. >>28074498And as Gale here says, >>>/m/ is where you should go for fast info. So far, we seem to be dealing with stuff from...Kabuto, Kiva, Decade, and Neo-Heisei. Probably AM-A-ZOOOOOON, Kuuga and.... Hm.. Who would fit in the Wasteland...
>>28073700>>28073730>>28073830As his hand reaches towards his shotgun, you speed towards Kamen Rider Ranger. His fingers curl around the handle as you hear the locks disengage. As he raises his gun in your direction, you grasp the [Eternal Robe] with your right arm as you grab towards the [Eternal Edge] with your left.As you see the barrels flash along with the sounds of the shells firing, you pull on the [Eternal Robe] and pull it off, throwing it forward. As he fires into your discarded cape, you’re throwing yourself to the left as you see the blasts shred through what had been your cape.However, there’s no time to waste as you clench your hand around the hilt of your knife as you charge forward. You hear Ranger curse as you rush forward as fast as you can as he tries to fire again. Thanks to your approach and his haphazard way of firing, however, only your right arm is injured by the buckshot, but his hit packs enough of a punch to have actually injured it.You grit your teeth as you slam into him and stab your knife’s edge into his right arm and carve your way down his arm, pinning his shotgun beneath your knee. You hear him scream, crying out in agony as you ruthlessly rend his arm asunder.Only your highly tuned reflexes allow you to see the pistol in his hand as he aims at you as you jump backwards to dodge the shot. RANGER stabbers to his knees, clutching at his arms, his modulated voice unable to hide his pain and agony. “My ARM! You ruined it with that KNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFE!”He’s sobbing, clutching at his arm, as you look down at him, pity and disgust warring within you at the sight of RANGER.“You…Are no ally of Justice.”RANGER freezes as he looks at you, his visor glowing red. “Juctice? FUCKING JUSTICE? People like YYOOOUUUU-”>(1/2)
>>28074592>refined Gaia MemoriesWe Big O now?
>>28074635He struggles to his feet, his left hand awkwardly grabbing the shotgun as it morphs into a rifle again as rockets begin to ignite on his back. You rush towards him, but he fires wildly at you, forcing you to dodge.“HAVE NO PLACE IN THIS WORLD!”RANGER stands on-top of the building as he points his rifle at you. From the nearby streets, several of the people start walking forward as you hear several simultaneous memories call out.“MASQUERADE”You glance around you. RANGEr has reached the edge of the nearby building and seems to be trying to hightail it. Nearby, several [Masquerade Dopants] are moving towards you. The ruined car is several feet behind you and you’re standing in the middle of an intersection. In the distance, people seem to be watching your fight with RANGER.>HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE?
>>28074651What are our parameters?
>>28074592>We passed up a chance for best driver because someone got scared about DESIRE, which is really not a bad thing.I voted Lost because we not only got ETERNAL, but we don't have to deal with those fucking henshin jingles that sound like a japanese Gilbert Godfried, and a belt that corrupts us with every use.Using the OOO belt is akin to becoming a dopant, and I want to be a RIDER, not a drug addict with super powers.>>28074651KNIFE. DRIVE.ETERNAL.THEY'RE USING GOD DAMNED GAIA MEMORIES, WE CAN ETERNAL MAXIMUM DRIVE THEM.This is where we excel- fucking over other GM users.
>>28074592Seriously, OOO Driver is bad if you have any desire. You progressively get more insane as you use it. Personally I was hoping for the Kuuga Belt, Eternal is still a great rider, seeing as it has the Movie Rider buff. Also, if we ever go looking for ALLIES OF JUSTICE! We should start with Amazon. He'd be the most open toward the idea of friends. >>28074635Hey Cosgrove, what would happen if we used one of the funky Memories in our driver? Like a Rider Memory, Ganbaride, Televikun, or Doctor Shinigami?
>>28074685You've lost your [Eternal Robe] by discarding it and using it have RANGER focus fire upon, your right arm's able to move, but it hurts and gives you trouble when you do so.You have the [Eternal Edge] in your left hand.If this was an RPG your health would probably be at about 85%
>>28074592So what's a Gaia Memory and also I thought the Riders where good guys?
>>28074651Ooh, Masquerade Dopants, so scary. They can be taken out by a solid punch. We have a knife. Let's just cut these guys. Ranger's running, we don't have any personal objection to him, we can afford to waste some time taking out mooks.
>>28074737We take on those Dopants with our body and this knife in our hand, though we must fight on the run away from these onlookers.
>>28074728Seconding this, activate Eternal's Maximum Drive and shut down their memories. Then call out for the floating arm to follow us unless it wants to end up in a foundation X lab, and book it before Ranger comes back.
>>28074736Depends on the memory- some might turn out badly for their user, especially if they've been tampered with.
>>28074775A Gaia Memory is the gimmick from Kamen Rider W. They're formed from the Planet's Memories and using them without a driver pretty much fucks you up and makes you an addict. But a driver weakens the power of the memory.
>>28074794Aww, but I wanted to become Kamen Rider Doctor Shinigami and use the IKA DE BEERU! Maximum Drive.
>>28074811I have no godamn idea what any of that means.Maybe this quest isn't for me.
>>28074736>Also, if we ever go looking for ALLIES OF JUSTICE! We should start with Amazon. He'd be the most open toward the idea of friends.>He'd be the most open toward the idea of friends.>Amazon>Not searching specifically for Fourze>Not dragging them both on an ally-gathering friendship ride of JUSTICE>not hijacking the time train to gather even MORE Justice Friends.>>28074775Gaia memories are awesome USB henshin gimmicks that each contain a different...power....sort of. It's complicated. Check out Kamen Rider W if you want to know more. It's one of the more fun series.And not all riders are good. There are quite a few evil ones, actually.>>28074811I thought T2 removed the weakening by Driver effect- didn't it?
>>28074737I was speaking more about Punching Power, Lifting Power, ect. IF we can pick u and throw the car at people.>>28074736OOO is best driver. I will accept no other statements. We could have tried for a Three Greeed Combo, dammit!>>28074775A crystallization of the planet's memory. UNrefined ones, used without proper equipment (IE: A Driver) are HORRIBLE for you. Like >>28074811 says.Think of it as... Something representing a concept. For instance, "Magma" gives you super heat-powers. >>28074859Stick around for a bit, though. See if things "click".
>>28074859Nah, stay and learn what it means to be an ALLY OF JUSTICE! Also, go watch W. It's pretty good for an intro series.A Driver, by the way, it anything you use to turn into a Kamen Rider. At least in the Heisei era, where people ain't cyborgs. >>28074862Not sure. Also, we can totally get Fourze too. We'll be the Friendship Buddies!
>>28074893Thanks for all the background and everything guys.I'll lurk the thread and see if I can pick up on this whole thing.I'll see if any of them are on netflix.
>>28074862Are we sure Fourze will be canon Gentaro? Because if not....
>>28074893Well, you don't know. That is exactly the answer. You do not know what you are capable of. You know what you have and you know that you can do Maximum Drives, but what they do is also a mystery to you.You'll need to figure out this Memory issue on your own.
>>28074945None are. Go over to, well, OverTime for Double. They're a good sub group.
>>28074775Most Riders don't just have belts. They also have power sources they slot into the belts. Often times these are the same power source used by the villains, just with a more refined integration system so they don't turn you into a monster. Gaia Memories are the power sources used in Kamen Rider W. They're shaped more or less like USB memory sticks, thus the name, and give powers based around an abstract concept that also dictates the emblem on them. The emblem is the first letter of their concept stylized to represent said concept. For example, the Violence Memory has a clawed, flexing arm in the shape of a V. Using a Gaia Memory with a Driver belt is safe and turns you into either a Rider or a "Dopant" creature based on what type of Driver you use (different Drivers use different types of Memory, though, most aren't cross-compatible). Using one without always turns you into a monster, and usually drives you slowly insane over time.Riders are usually the heroes, yes, but there are villainous examples. Normally they appear in the movie spin-offs as the ultimate villain, a sort of evil reflection of the hero. Occasionally they appear in the series proper, but that's rare. I think the last evil Rider in the TV versions was Delta in Kamen Rider Faiz, back in 2003. And even he got his belt taken from him and used by a protagonist, eventually. But this is the Rider War we're in right now. That's based in the movies, not the TV series. So Evil Riders are the norm, not the exception.
>>28074970Eh, depends on how flashy he wants his subs. Overtime is kind of bland and has had problems in the past with taking liberties with their subs that didn't need to be taken. TV-Nihon has abit more effects, which is cool. But they leave some shit untranslated, which gets to be really annoying.
>>28074963Then I say... Try and pick up the car, since they aren't too close. Maybe we can swing it and take a few out.If we CAN'T...MAXIMUM. DRAIVU. >>28075014I prefer translated over flashy, to be honest.
>>28074893>OOO is best driver. I will accept no other statements. We could have tried for a Three Greeed Combo, dammit!So it's just you looking at the pros instead of the cons.Right.OOO only works for one guy. We are not that guy by our own character creation. We have ambition and dreams. That will fuck. us. over.They're as bad as Gaia memories, except the badness doesn't change even with a belt.>>28074949If he isn't, we FIND canon Gentaro. Friendship will call him to us.>>28074945Try to avoid TV Nihon subs, they fuck up every series they sub- except Kabuto. I loved how pretentious they made Kabuto sound.Aesir's subbing Gaim now, and Gaim is fucking EXCELLENT so far.
>>28074993Fantastic rundown; cheers and thanks!
>>28075051Our goal is to KILL DICKEIDO. We're already fucked over. OOO would have given us more of a chance to achieve our goals and dreams before we fail.
>>28075160OOO would have driven us insane and made us lose sight of our goals for raw DESIRE.
>>28075160>>28075174 has it right. Eternal will not lead us astray we hope.
>>28075160Well, we've got Ankh following after us. Maybe we can still get some Core Medal shenanigans going on. Like a fusion of OOO and Eternal, with 15 Medal slots all over the suit instead of 26 Memory slots. That could be pretty awesome, if we got that.
so I'm catching up on Bleach Quest since it sort of came back and I really really want to chill with Shinji... especially considering what may or may not have just happened to him in last weeks chapter.>>28075250>15 slotsAnd they will be filled in due time and we will be not unlike god.And then get our shit promptly kicked in.
>>28075174Would have EVENTUALLY driven us insane. One man's sanity... For the world. A small price.Pic COMPLETELY unrelated to this conversation...Also, I regret not suggesting Beet J Stag as a name during character creation. >>28075250I wish. Oh, do I wish. But we're chasing Ankh, not the other way around. Though we've already got Mezool in our pocket....
>>28075388Insanity is bad. It subverts justice and turns us into another petty evil rider. I'd prefer to not use the Medals at all, due to how stressful they are, and the price they draw.
>>28074728>>28074776>>28074784>>28075034You relax and begin to control your breathing as the Dopants charge at you. You duck and weave through their attacks as you stab into them with your [Eternal Edge]. However, as you take one down, there always seems to be another one coming from the crowds.This is a [Rider Battle]- until one surrenders or dies, it will not end. And in the [Territory] they own, unless you have your own forces to rout them, they have as many supporters as they need. So long as the Rider is beloved by the people, they will answer the call to fight for him.You glance around as you see waves of Masquerade Dopants chage at you from every direction.You grip your Eternal Edge as up pull out your [ETERNAL MEMORY] and, reluctantly, shove it into the maximum drive slot of your knife.“ETERNAL”You feel a rush of understanding of your Maximum Drive [Eternal Requiem.] At your current stage, so long as you focus on one specific Gaia Memory, it will keep that memory deactivated through the duration of the Rider Battle.“MAXIMUM DRIVE”You focus upon the Memory of [Masquerade] as you feel the power twist something intangible as around you, the dopants stumble and collapse as they revert to average citizens. You grit your teeth and drop to one knee as you feel your transformation end, leaving the [Eternal Memory] in your hand.>(1/2)
>>28075506"Hey, Arm thing! If you don't want to find yourself in a Foundation X lab, you should give me a hand!"You glance around the rooftops as you hear laughter. “So you’re a big shot, but you blew your load prematurely. Really disappointing, man. Hell, you're callnig out for someone to give you a hand!”You struggle and stand as you feel the Eternal Memory in your hand pulse. It only needs a few more seconds, but that might be the end of you…Kamen Rider Ranger’s voice continues to echo around. “So, how shall I finish this? Take out your arms and legs and drag you to my superiors? Or make that fat of yours explode like an overripe grape?”You close your eyes and take a deep breathe before dropping jumping to the side, landing on your injured arm with a wince as the sound of a shot echoes.“I missed.”There’s disbelief in his voice, but from the direction of the sound, you know that he’s on the building in front of you and to the left. But, having missed his shot, it’s likely he’ll try to shoot again without relocating thanks to the fact that you aren’t transformed right now.The car is immediately to your right and the alley is a bit of a distance to your left. You grasp the Eternal Memory in your hand- thirty seconds.You need to survive RANGER's assault unarmored for thirty seconds.>HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE?
>>28075548>ALLEY. Don't let him have a clear shot, ever.
>>28075506"There are those with the courage to find [JUSTICE] even in the domain of the enemy." Alley. Keep out of his line of sight. If he keeps firing on the car, he might explode it. But in the Alley he'll have to follow us. If we're lucky, we might be able to get the drop on him when we can transform again.
>>28075548which arm did we injure? His right?Then move to his right. It'll be a hell of a lot easier for him to track us on his left. So our left, his right, duck into the alley, Then, if we can, climb the walls and get into a position to move onto the roof as soon as ETERNAL is ready again.We need to be armored if we're in his sights at all.From there, we Rider-wuxia-jump and take the fight to him, again, on his right side. This is why I voted ambidextrous, by the way.
We have those medals right?
>>28075426How about Cell Medals? Would those be acceptable? We could equip the Births CLAWs and get a nice expansion of our arsenal.Actually, that might be thinking too small. Why limit ourselves to just adding one other Rider's power sources to our arsenal? We're up against Decade, he's got them all. We should be collecting everything we can and integrating them into Eternal. Let's outdo Kabuto and steal EVERYONE's transformation items. Mirror Monsters, Undead cards, photon energy generators, Zecters...whatever we can get our hands on. We'll fuse them together into the Endless Memory and have a copied-powers-off with Decade.
>>28075548We go to the alley, even an ally of justice must retreat to come back stronger. Let this game of cat and also cat begin, once we take out [RANGER] we can escape the city.
>>28075651If you wanted to do that, why didn't you vote to play as Kaito in the first thread?
>>28075681I was in class when we were selecting our character. Didn't get a chance to vote at all.
>>28075681because fuck DiEnd.We should get these powers by befriending people, by the way. Not stealing them or mimicking them, but because we're bros with everyone, and our belief in JUSTICE is that powerful.
>>28075722Seems kind of dumb to avoid being DiEnd just so we can play DiEnd.
>>28075722You know what? Yes. My thinking was flawed. You are right. Just taking all the transformation items is for villains. Let us join together with those Riders who still hold heroism in their hearts and earn our strength, not steal it. Thank you for correcting me, friend. Truly you are an ally of justice.
>>28075739It's the principle of the matter. We're Eternal, not DiEnd. We're not even Daido's Eternal, but our own.If we're going to get upgrades, let them be based off other powers, but work within our own. We're not here to make other Riders useless should they fight alongside us- that just nullifies gathering allies in the first place. And fighting alone doesn't always work out for Riders.
>>28075174>>28075210Faggots.The both of youIt's as if you're unaware that being the main character gives you plot armorThat being said, why aren't we on a never ending climax?
>>28075983So then why are we trying to jam all the powers into Eternal? Honestly, we can get all the upgrades we want from Gaia Memories, without becoming a bloody copy of Decade.
Did Cosgrove decide on a day to run BQ?Hopefully he didn't get tired of it.
>>28076146>Why aren't we on a never ending climax?Well you see after we do our thing we have something called a refractory period afterwards where we can't get our stuff up.
Is it a bad thing that my only knowledge of Kamen Rider comes from Dragon Knight?
You don’t even glance at the car- RANGER took out the tire easy enough and you’d be less maneuverable in it. So, moving as fast as you can, you try to move into where his right arm would be to lower his chances of hitting you thanks to the injury you gave him.Dashing and hopping over civilian bodies, you occasionally hear shots ring out. As you’re about to reach the alley’s entrance you drop to the ground as a bullet flies through the air where you head would have been. You roll into the alley and let out a sigh of relief.The alley was the safer place, so naturally it would be the place anyone would head towards. So, when you headed for it, RANGER began firing, not at you, but to try to make you frantic enough to fall into his trap. The lack of bullets impacting, thanks to the many bodies of his citizens littering the ground, was too risky for him to fire at. The entrance of the alley was the best place to try to take you out.You run towards the fire escape, pulling something from the inner pocket of your jacket.You have twenty seconds until you can transform. RANGER can be here or in firing position in probably less than that. So, you need to get to the roof where you have more maneuverability.You aim towards the top of the fire escape and fire your grappling line, hooking it into your actual belt and trigger the mechanism. Eight seconds later, you’re grabbing the edge and pulling yourself over onto the top of the fire escape. The roof is within your reach.A gunshot echoes off of the metal around you. As you jump to the roof and roll, multiple shots firing out as you flatten yourself. You glance up to see a form in the middle of the air, moving towards your location.Five seconds.>HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE?
>>28076146Except it doesn't give us plot armor. We have to make that ourselves.Also, I was saying before, we need to hijack the never-ending climax and use it to create a train of friendship and comraderie that we will drag other riders along on to fight Decade.>>28076238not really. It's an acceptable starting point, all things considered.>>28076300Hm. Do we have anything we can try and hit him with? He's in the air. If we aim for his feet, we can ruin his landing, potentially injuring him more.
>>28076300If there's any loose hunks of building, grab a piece and chuck it at him. Then stick to his right side, he'd have to shoot over himself or turn to face us, giving us more time to move.
>>28076300Roll out of the way as our attacker comes down, if there is a water tower on this roof, fight around it, leaving seeming openings whilst we stand in front of the structural struts to let our foe know the tower upon himself as we dodge at the last second or take a hit to ensure the next few precious seconds.
>>28076300Would the fall last at least 5 seconds if we were to jump off the building?
>>28076469no. We are not taking a hit.This guy has guns that can fuck up our armor. we're a MELEE fighter. We already lost the use of one arm for combat. No way are we taking any more hits that might kill us if anyone else shows up.
>>28076300Any way we can catch his leg with our grapple gun and trip him?

There’s no water tower, no really anything to grab to throw at him. And while you might have enough time to jump and maybe transform, you’d be back on the ground where he’s got the high ground advantage.However, he’s in a long jump so maybe?You detach the line from your belt before stepping to your left and firing the grappling gun at the rifle of RANGER that is aiming at you. With his left arm, there’s enough of a delay for your shot to hit his arm and knock his aim off enough. The shot, unlike the shotgun form’s buckshot is rather precise, so you luck out. However, as he lands on the roof, the gun begins to shift forms once again as RANGER growls at you. “Damn you, just give up! I’m not giving up this cushy position to a little asshole like you! Do you even know what you’re getting into?!”You feel the [Eternal Memory] cool, so you reinsert it and transform as he lets loose another shot with the shotgun. However, the [transformation flux] is a moment where a [Gaia Memory] and the individual coincide, granting the user the planet’s protection. Eternal’s armor forms up and you hold the [Eternal Edge in your left hand] but something’s wrong. Your left hand is blue, holding your knife, but the right is red. Furthermore, the [Eternal Robe] didn’t form either…RANGER laughs. “Seems like you’re pretty burned up about it, Eternal. Well, let’s finish this.”He pulls the hammer on his belt as his shotgun begins to change again, turning into a Gatling cannon on his arm which is rapidly beginning to gain energy.Seems like he’s pulling off his finisher…Should you do the same?>IT’S DO OR DIE

You grab your [Eternal Memory] and slam it into the Maximum Drive slot.“ETERNAL”You crouch as you ready your self to jump as RANGER’s LAST GATLING finisher announces itself.“MAXIMUM DRIVE”Back flipping into the air, you speed forward, yellow energy collects at the sole of your boot into a giant ’E’ as you slam downwards towards Kamen Rider RANGER, who aims his barrels upwards as the barrel lets lose a barrage of energy blasts.The two meet in midair as you try to force yourself forward and overpower your enemy’s final attack. The Eternal Kick’s blast blares blue as you slam through and impact into his chest, sending him flying off the rooftop, as you follow suit.Getting up, you see Ranger’s form fading away into that of a beaten and bruised young man with brown hair, who is clutching at his arm, crying out, his belt still around his waist.You, however, are still Kamen Rider Eternal.Your [Eternal Edge] is clutched in your left hand, which is a magnificent midnight blue.The man freezes as he looks at you in terror, backing away.>[ ]Force him to submit as your subordinate>[ ]Let him flee, so long as he admits defeat.>[ ]It’s best to kill him, just to be sure DEBTS HAVE TO BE REPAID- HARVEST HIM

Where did that come from?No, it’s obvious you should just go ahead and make him work for you and learn some morals? LOOK AT HIM, THERE’S NOTHING TO REDEEM You stare down into the man’s shivering form as he stares up at you, back against a wall. Huh. Had you been approaching him? Still, you stare into his eyes as you see fear and resentment, the building blocks of hate.Yeah, even if you tried, all he’d do is inevitably betray you… JUST LIKE SHE DID You feel a lump form in your throat as your hand shakingly moves forward. This is what you have to do, for the good of your fellow rebels, they’re your family now. You need to protect them. And the best way to do that… IS TO GET RID OF HIM!IS TO GET RID OF HIM!You stab the [Eternal Edge] into and through his driver a blood starts to pool out. Even so, as you do so, light begins to emanate from your left arm as you feel the [Mysterious Blue Coin] heat up.

>>28078694Well, shit. I don't even know what to think, now. Mezool's in the Gaia Library. This should be interesting.
>>28078694He was right.We know nothing of justice...
What the fuck /tg/? I'm gone five minutes, and when I come back you've gone full on fucking retarded.First of all: Why did you stupid fucks take the obviously bad action? We're playing a character who's motivation is [Justice]. Destroy/Take Ranger's Driver, make the person who lorded and abused his power live as a normal insignificant human in a world of Rider and Kaijin. THAT IS JUSTICE. Not only that, you can be damn sure his faction won't look on him losing a driver lightly.Second: >Mezool in the Gaia Library.THIS IS WHY WE DON'T FUCK WITH CORE MEDALS YOU FUCKING RETARDED FUCKS! 'Stop picking the obvious "Mezool is manipulating you." options, give her ass to Ankh, and let's get back to being a Hero.
>>28078694You’re floating in a vast white void. There’s more there, hundred of books, but it’s out of your reach…“Of course it is, Eternal-boy.”Your head snaps to the side as reality seems to reorient itself- you aren’t laying in a white void, you’re now standing on a white floor as a girl? Is standing there. There aren’t too many details about her, it’s like looking through a translucent screen at her- like there’s static between her and the rest of the world.She seems to sit down as water seems to form into a chair for her as she sits, crossing her legs.“Who are you?”You think she smiles at you.“Me? Oh, I thought you’d be more familiar with me, considering how much you put your hands all over me. Were it not for the fact that you turned out to be a beneficial acquaintance, I might’ve let you die, you know.”She sighs. “Still, Julian Vant, I suppose I will introduce myself. You may refer to me as Mezool.”She gestures around you. “In return for doing as I wished, allowing me access, I will return you in turn.”She gestures as two books appear in front of you. One of them has a Stylized ‘T’ on it and the other one has a familiar ‘E’ on it. Mezool herself seems to be holding a book herself, but you cannot see it’s title.You stare down at the two books.>[ ]What are these?>[ ]What is that book you have there?>[ ]What are you?>[ ]Where is this place?!>[ ]What exactly did you get out of me 'helping you'?>[ ]Write in(only two option max, please)

>>28079293We were drawn into the Rider War and found ourselves playing Decade's game, but also Mezool's. We need to make sure this doesn't happen again, otherwise we have no right to call our self Kamen Rider.
You stare at the books, the Familiar ‘E’ reminds you of the symbol of the [Eternal Memory] But that can’t be, right?You look up at her as she seems to be observing you.“What are these?”She leans back in her ‘chair’ and lets out a thoughtful noise. “What are these, Eternal-boy?“Well, I suppose it would be easier to simplify things. I guess you could say that they’re the planet’s memories.”You start as your brow furrows. What?“They’re the planet’s memories?”Mezool leans forward, clutching her book to her. “That’s right. Your [Gaia Memories] are memories of the planet brought out and turned into conduits for human use. That’s why things like [Drivers] are needed- they protect the user from being overwhelmed and addicted to the Gaia Memory’s power. Well, usually.”“Usually?”Mezool withdraws into herself as she nods. “Usually. But, as you were asking, Eternal-Boy, about what those were. They’re your Gaia memory and the new one you ‘acquired.’”Your memory flashes back as you feel disgust well up in you as you stare at the ‘T’ Gaia Memory book. You recall the sensation on stabbing into RANGER’s unarmored form, the power flowing into you…Clutching at your left wrist you glare at Mezool.“And what, exactly, did you get out of me ‘helping you?’”Your words are venomous as Mezool looks unperturbed. “Well, you did halt my revival, but to be fair, as to what I got. That’s this.”>(1/2)
>>28079460She looks down at the book she’s holding as you see the shadow of a figure appear behind her, one more ’real’ than the girl you’re staring at, mimicking her pose. It could best be called a mockery of human form as your mind recalls back to the entities forming out of the ‘silver coins’ at the Foundation X research facility. Her stare has a strange intensity to it as she speaks with a strong intensity.“With this book, I can change myself, little by little. I can become…”Mezool freezes and looks up at you, as the shadow behind her vanishes. She stands up, the chair of water evaporating, as she tries to look nonchalant.“Well, those are your rewards, Eternal-boy, and this is mine. Quite the beneficial partnership, wouldn’t you say?”She extends a hand out towards you.>[ ]Take her hand>[ ]”Whatever you want to achieve? I’m going to stop.

>>28079525Don't be so quick to think she's someone worthy of trust when her words led us to a gross action, killing a disarmed opponent with what should be a blade of justice.That blade should be meant for Decade's life alone.>>28079534Voting for this.Better to know what the monster wishes to attain first.

>>28079472> Write in"Partnership? I got carried away by Eternal, you clung along for the ride. There was no cooperation here. Or are you claiming that this 'harvest' was your doing? Not much reason for me to work with you, then, if you're going to manipulate me like that. You'll have to find someone else to be the remora to. Good day, Mezool."And then we turn and walk away. I'm sure if we walk far enough the Gaia Library will understand our desire to leave and eject us.
>>28079472> Look at your two booksand>>28079525on other news>>28079125see my post, I'm not motiveted by JUSTICE but by DESIRE!
You cross your arms as Mezool pauses, looking slightly unsure."Finish your sentence. What are you trying to become? I'll give you my answer then."Mezool withdraws her hand and scowls at you as she wraps her arms around the book. She shakes her head. “How typical. I suppose, ultimately all humans are like -him- after all.”She puts a hand on her hip as she regains some of her composure. She points at your book that’s liked to your [Eternal Memory]. “I shouldn’t be surprised that you don’t show any gratefulness to me despite all I did for you.”You pause and look at the Eternal Book. Mezool gestures for you continue. “Go ahead. Look at it. It should be enlightening.”Mezool watches you, waiting for you to look at the book.>[ ]Fine, look at the book.>[ ]Don’t dodge the question!>[ ]THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!>[ ]Write in

>>28079773"Don't dodge the question. I want to know if you're going to run loose and try to kill everyone, or if it's something simple, like wanting to live in peace or something. If it's the former, you aren't getting my help. If it doesn't harm innocents, I don't see why not."

>>28079920So you think we're Stronger?Really?
>>28079920If only befriending the monster could solve the problem in this case.But you know, that's not a bad idea.It may not happen now, or even soon, but someday, we'll change a villain. And once we change one, we can change another.We will redeem our foes, not devour them.>>28079960as far as Riders go, he could have chosen worse.
>>28079920Exactly. Mezool is a monster who sees nothing wrong with the most evil of acts if they further her goals. She, and all her kind, are incapable of true empathy. You can't make friends with Greeed. Unless you're Eiji, but he's a weirdo like that, and it took him his entire series to do it. And I guess Gentaro could do it, too, but that fucker can befriend anything. I'm pretty sure that he doesn't exist in the World of Rider War, because if he did Decade would have already been befriended and neutralized as a threat.
>>28079920It's like you didn't watch FourzenBEFRIEND EVRY THING>STRONGER 2showa4meI pictured us more like Kuuga or OOO down to the darker part of the power
>>28080051Except Gentaro didn't try to make friends with those he knew to be evil/the bad dudes (unless I missed something), so that is a moot point, anon.
>>28080027Worse.He could be on Decade's side.
>>28080142you missed somethingHe befriended the Big Bad
>>28080051>>28080145Gentaro's helmet always irked me. It looks so angry. He's such a happy guy. Like, he is the happiest rider, and his helmet looks the angriest. It's just not right.
You glance at the book before turning back to Mezool. You keep the focus of the man who died in terror at your hands. "Enlightening about the answer to the question I asked, or just in general? And don't act like I owe you anything. This isn't an act of kindness on your part. You said it yourself, you profited from this as much as I did. Probably more, considering how reluctant you are to speak plainly."You step forward and point at her. "I have somebody's blood on my hands who might still be alive if not for your 'help'. What do you stand to gain from this 'partnership'? What will you become?"Mezool’s face becomes frigid. “How arrogant you are indeed.”She reaches over to you and grabs you, as you feel your senses evaporate to nothing but static- touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing all but a millionth of what they once were, and then it improves by just a little. Barely anything, but even so, to the deprivation you’ve experienced, it’s unbelievably amazing to experience.When she lets go, she grabs the Eternal Book and opens it, showing your face into it, literally as she pushes you away. She picks at her nails as she turns away from you as you try to scramble to your feet. “You’re right, I do have something to gain from this partnership, why else would I propose it? But as to what that is, I have no obligation to tell you, considering the debt you owe me. But before you pull off one of your self-righteous speeches, why don’t you -look- at the book and tell me who profited more so far. Me, or -you-?”You pull your face out of the book and glance at it. You stare at it as Mezool walks somewhere behind you. “You can give me all the lip you want, but at the end of the day -I- was the one you owe your life to.”>[ ]This changes nothing!>[ ]What does this mean exactly?>[ ]I might owe you my life, but that doesn’t make up for the one I was -forced- to take!>[ ]Write in

She made us break one of them.If it means we don't commit atrocities, then I'm fine with giving up Rider powers until she thinks she can play nice. Let her find someone else compatible with Etern- Oh, wait, we're the one who has it.
>>28080214>[ ]This changes nothing!"I hardly call that conclusive evidence. I had access to more power during that fight than I do right now. Maybe you drew out Eternal's abilities and gave an otherwise unsuitable user an edge. Maybe I would have had that power anyway, and it's your presence in the system that's rendered the Memory unstable now. Regardless, you are a strange monster made of magic coins, with a hidden agenda and a demonstrated willingness to manipulate me. I don't see this partnership working out. If you're going to force me working with you just say it so we can get this over with. Otherwise, good day."
You pause, trying to take in the information in the book. It’s honestly a bit confusing. Power output less then ten percent? Unsuited user? All abilities sealed?Red Flare status? Five percent compatibility?All of that… You pick up the book and close it, looking at Mezool. “What does all of that mean?”Mezool shakes a finger. “Red Flare user of The Eternal Memory, despite flames being blue and the abilities being sealed? You haven’t figured it out?“The one who allowed you to access nearly the full potential of that memory was me. That means all usage of that knife of yours, along with that cloak and all those finishing attacks? That was me acting as a buffer to allow you a high amount of access. “You scowl at her. “I might owe you my life, but that doesn’t make up for the one I was -forced- to take!”Mezool shrugs. “I didn’t do anything but draw out what was already there. You know what? I don’t think I’ll need this partnership if this is going to be how I‘m thanked. After all, I’m sure someone more suitable and a lot less caring about the means will come along. Or maybe Gamel will come looking for me? Go ahead and take your [Gaia Memory]. I’m sure you’ll be fine. It isn’t like you’re surrounded by enemies, after all.”She pauses, snapping her fingers. “Oh, but I’ll make sure that you don’t get either of the rewards, considering their despicable means of being gotten. So, I’ll leave those here. Goodbye!”Mezool waves you off as you see the white light starting to grow.>[ ]Wait! >[ ]Remain silent>[ ]write in
>>28080431So, she's leaving us with Red flare- and I'm assuming without the Trigger we got from Ranger.Shit.This is not how I anticipated this going.Guys, are we willing to play nice with a monster to dish out justice a little while longer?

>>28080488No. We aren't. We don't work with Kaijin. Or at least not ones like this. If Momotaros or Kivat decide they want to work with us, that's fine. Mezool, on the other hand, can go to hell.
>>28080488One compromise leads to more.What are the odds we could just become Ranger instead?
>>28080522She has to be bluffing.

>>28080703Sometimes in order to save the village you have to burn it.Better to tread lightly and take the deal for now than to let a mans death mean nothing.Not to mention we have to think about the greater good here.
>>28080488I say we go for it. Or did we all forget that we have a friend turned enemy who's probably gunning for us? Being locked into hard mode is going to mean Emily Straits bends us over- we have to protect our rebel buddies, after all.
>>28080724No, I didn't forget. Thus my "not ones like this" comment. But there's a difference between this and every other Rider who worked with a Kaijin. They all were equals with their monstrous partner. We'd be Mezool's slave, with her holding over our head the threat of denying us Blue Flare's power when we need it. Best to cut ties with her entirely. I'd rather have Hard Mode and be used to it than have an unreliable power that could cut out the moment we anger her.
>>28080724I'm all for redeeming villains, but this one?Do you really think this one can be saved?>>28080775I actually DID forget that.Shit. Hard mode just got harder.

>>28080720No, her TEMP_ADMIN status is proof she's bluffing. Well, not bluffing, she does have control over our power now, but she lied about being responsible for saving us. We were using Blue Flare just fine. Then we had a system reboot and Eternal's power became unstable. Then she gained full access to the Gaia Library and we got switched to Red Flare. She's playing us. She didn't unleash our full power during the fight. She inhibited it afterwards. We need to take her out so we have full access to Eternal again.
>>280808231>>28080811Ankh was also ready to toss Eiji a said on the startbut i have to agree that we shouldn’t be completely ate her merci, but that's for us to figure out how
>>28080817we're not OOO, Prinny. You seem to be forgetting that. We're not exceptional in the same way Eiji was, we're more of the Showa/Kabuto/Kuugaa type. So we're a manly man of great moral fiber, but in the end, that seems to actually be our character flaw- it stops us from being able to use medals, it makes a deal with Mezool abhorrent, and in the end, I'm okay with that.And if we can, we'll redeem all the villains and hot monster girls we can- but not this one. She made us kill a man in cold blood, and then scoffed at our outrage.These are not the kind of things we want in a Rider/Kaijin relationship.Maybe if she had come clean, allowed us to negotiate the details of the bargain, I'd be with you on this. But she's in it for her greed, and hers alone. And there's no justice in that.>>28080856Also this. very much this.....does that mean we still have TRIGGER?>>280808233
>>28080873Your vote won't count if you don't post it as he said. Or it might given that it is the only opposing vote.Though the rest of you still need to vote before time is up!
>>28080817And look at how many times Ankh betrayed him. Greeeds are assholes, let's not deal with them.>>280808233
>>28080887I'm just point out that's possible, a thing that seems to be ignored, but seems that I'm out voted so there's no point on continuing discussingAlso I would like to disagree with you about kabuto's morality the dood is a jeark
>Alright, so 2 to 1 (as only 3 people replied correctly) the winner is 3.
>>28080984 I was naming the show, not the Rider. I was more talking about the great GATACK than Kabuto.But I see your point.Hibiki, then. There's a man of greatness.
>>28080997Only watched the first episode of Hibiki, is it any good?>>28080897Thanks man>>28080992at lest it wasn't to2
>>28081044It's manly as fuck, but TV-N fucked the subs up beyond recognition. The first thirty episodes are fantastic, but then part two is a completely different show. It was never supposed to be a kamen rider show, but halfway through toei got a hold of it and, well, they made it more kamen rider, which actually got in the way of it being Hibiki. By all means, watch both halves, but keep an open mind about it.
As the white light begins to brighten, you smirk at Mezool."Thank you for being so understanding, Mezool. Likewise, I'll keep your coin. Given the frustrating nature of how it was unsealed, I'm sure it would be too unbearable for you to have it. Goodbye."She crosses her arms, disappointment marring her face. “Please, I’ve waited over eight hundred years. A little longer won’t kill me. But I suppose what‘s waiting for you out there might.”“Wha-?”And you wake up, you feel something roll out of your pocket. Your eyes snap open as you move to get it, but there’s things that catch your eyes. The first is that you’re back at your base. The second is that all of your friends are there, with relief and excitement in their eyes. As you try to grab the moving coin, you feel someone grab your wrist. Glancing over, you feel your heart nearly stop as Emily Straits, bandaged and bruised, smiles at you. “Hey, that’s no way for an injured hero to act, is it?”Your friend, Jupiter Jones nods his head. “Yeah, man. Emily dragged your body back here. I’d never seen her so worried. Besides that, you’re a big deal now! Everyone’s heard of the man who stood up to Foundation X!”All of them call out “Three cheers for our Rebel hero, Kamen Rider Eternal!”“Hip! Hip!”Emily picks up and flips a familiar blue coin before you can stop her, a smirk on her face.“Hurray.”KAMEN RIDER WAR EPIODE 2 END>Next time: Foundation X's retaliation
>>28081085ok will watch italso>TV-N fucked the subsnoting new here
>>28081111Thanks for running Cosgrove!Tag it and bag it before it's too late guys.
>>28081111Thanks for running, DECADE!Any thoughts on when next thread'll be?[spoilers]Also, seriously, was it a Bad Move™ to ditch Mezool?[/spoilers]>>28081044No problem, just wanted to be fair about it. I'm a regular reader of Cosgrove's quests and this is the first time I've seriously participated.
>>28081111As I recall, we have three of Mezool's Core Medals. What happened to the other two?Also, shank Emily at first possible opportunity. Seriously, if the very first thing we do in the next thread isn't lunging for her, I will be very disappointed.
>>28081120You underestimate how BADLY they fucked the subs.Like, holy SHIT."This place is familiar" became "I once met an old friend here who is gone now" or some shit. It's barely even funny.>>28081111ooooooh.So she wants to play the Yangire game.You picked such a fitting girl for Emily to look like; Rena's the poster girl for this shit for a good reason. This will make things interesting. Much more interesting.In the meantime, next thread we're going to have to see if we still have [TRIGGER], and if we go into [RED FLARE] instead of Blue, still.Also, work on how long we can stay in Rider form, or if we can maintain Rider form after a Maximum Drive. This will be essential to later battles. You can bet on that. Also, work on poses- both pre and post henshin.Thanks for running, Cosgrove- we'll be here next week, for certain.
>>28081111Thanks running DECADE!on other news>Emily dragged us here>She as Mezool's medalsOh boy this is going to be a problem>It's all DECADE’s fault!!
>>28081186>Also, shank Emily at first possible opportunity.Why?
>>28081111>killed unarmed man because we are a HERO>people agreeBuenoAlso we archived yet?
>>28081252seriously doodshe betrayed us and stole our core medals, do you need any more reasons
>>28081271We've already taken one life, what's another right?>>28081262We are not archived.
>>28081252She betrayed us to Decade's goons in exchange for a driver which makes her KAMEN RIDER BLACK KNIGHT and has Mezool's core medal which is bad news because we just flipped the bird to Mezool something hard.
>>28081283While I don't want to kill her it would be stupid and suicidal to do nothing
>>28081186>>28081182Well, a Greeed's consciousness only inhabits one core medal, which was moving.Not just that, but you all taunted Mezool, just to be sure that reconciliation is impossible . Just an FYI, I will be ranking this quest's difficulty level that of: GOODBYE, JOJO!
>>28081429> just to be sure that reconciliation is impossibleONORE /TEEGEE/!!!>difficulty level that of:GOODBYE, JOJO!Oh boy we are so screwed
Rolled 10>>28081429>Goodbye JOJOWe dead man. We fucking dead. I don't think we going to last long enough to even take over a state must less defend a city.
>>28081347Doing nothing is dumb, yes. But we DO need to expose her.Also I feel pretty shitty about killing Ranger. He seemed like he could have been a hell of a bro or interesting character had he lived to tell the tale.
>>28081429Quest over.Just pack up and go home now.The world shall burn forever and there is absolutely nothing we can do to save it.
>>28081524>Also I feel pretty shitty about killing Ranger. He seemed like he could have been a hell of a bro or interesting character had he lived to tell the tale.As many riders in Ryuki would anonlets see on the next thread how tings turn out
>>28081555>>28081524I imagine at least a little of that will transfer over to Coyote Starrk once Bleach Quest finally gets sorted out and stabilized.He's already taken up the guitar and had a pretty western theme to start with.
>>28081541>>28081510Were's your HOPE anon?
>>28081620Gone with man.
Rolled 58>>28081620This is not a tale of justice and peace.This is a tragedy.Of a woman who wanted power and territory but had to sacrifice love(eh, more like a small crush)Of a man who wanted to save the world from evil and restore it back where it was...betrayed by his friends and family(this bitch will make it seems like we are the traitor without hard cold proof)Evil wins, good is dead and justice is buried in a wasteland.You want hope. You better get used to being alone. This aren't no power rangers.
>>28081494>>28081510>>28081541The road of JUSTICE is and never will be an easy one but that path will mold Julian into the Rider he needs to be.Never falter in the face of continued attrition, RIDERS.He will fight till he wins or he will fight till he cannot stand.BUT NEVER MUST HE OR WE GIVE UP ON THAT BLAZING LIGHT OF HOPE FOR HE IS A HERO OF MAN!
Rolled 79>>28081694Find then.We can't kill her. She killed the original eternal. One much more experience and stronger than usWe got to deal with her...until we become strong enough. Become STRONGER than her.This time. Save the drivers. We going to need an small group of brave heroes.
>>28081724A rag-tag team of teens with attitude and nothing left to lose?
Hrm. So we're stuck with Red Flare form, an angry Dark Rider, and Mezool is running. Feels like we're playing Peter Parker Quest with Max Parker Luck, but then again, I suppose Decade designed this world to try and suppress those with a sense of Justice. Hopefully we can sync with Eternal better next thread, if not we'll just have to survive and find a new belt. And if we die, maybe we'll get lucky and evolve into an Orphenoch.
So who else thinks this is Cos-cade's revenege for constantly shitting up his Bleach and Parker quests with Kamen Rider references?
*yawn* good morning.>>28083557Yes.....Now Our Kamen rider should start Websuga Tenshwing around....I am not a clever man.Still, fantastic Quest.
>>28081694It is going to take a while to even have a chance at justice again.But if we cannot be justice...We can at least be ETERNALSyncing with the memory might be be the only way to survive now.
This campaign is awfully Dresden Files-y...
