Today is a repeat of yesterday. Tomorrow will be a repeat of today. No matter what happens in your life, it seems like you've always got someone telling you what to do. Today has been a handful. Not only have you had to go to the UGN's local headquarters for an interrogation and examination, but you had to deal with the awful, awful acting of your new unwanted companion, Claire. The UGN agent is currently staring at her reflection in a shop window, fussing over her bangs. You flip open your phone and try to figure out where in this mountain of texts your classmate, Manaka Ayase, asked you to wait for her.Ugh, it's like she can't go three words without a misspelling or an emoticon...are all teenage girls like this? As the thought crosses your mind, you look over to Claire, who appears to be striking an awkward pose you think you've seen in BoBo's Strange Journey.Suddenly, your phone vibrates and you nearly drop it in surprise. You rarely receive any sort of mail, and even then, you never have your phone on you when it happens. It's another text from Ayase...SENDER: MANA-MANA@NCITY.EMLSUBJECT: metingso lik i kno i said we had 2 tlk but hrry shod up n' we gttin fud now. so srry! (⊙﹏⊙)nxt time! (* >ω<) 4 sho!!...hrry? Does she mean Harry? As in Harold Yeager? As in that creepy stalker she has? ...Well, if that's what she wants to do, it's none of your business is it? You could always head home and take it easy. Yeager is a freak, but the UGN has told you he's not a problem. Besides, if you head home, you could probably ditch your babysitter early today. Even if you'd rather not turn in already, you can always kill time at the arcade again. It was nice to go back after so long.>Go check on Ayase anyway. You don't trust Yeager one bit.>Head home. Anything to get Claire off your back.>Go to the arcade. You deserve to enjoy yourself.

>>29375328Home requires the least effort so go nap or something
I can't remember, did Claire schedule a meeting with her furfag instructor?
oh fuck I thought the important DX thread bumped.
>>29375497...her furfag instructor, do we know if is a he or a she?
>>29375553Don't applogize. Op really should have used a diffrent image.
>>29375553nobad DXR, badyou don't rune outside the rune box, ok?
>>29375553Here. Just use this for the OP in later threads. Or make your own. Whatever works.
>>29375438>>29375511I vote against this. The Captain wants nothing to do with this Overed bullshit and will resist acknowledging he is a a monstrous beast in the body of a young man as long as possible.>>29375420How could that be possible? Didn't he transfer in with at the same time as Claire? Texting her something that could help her not become the next victim of Overed crime would be nice, but I can't think of anything in character.
>>29375697Just text that we have it on excellent authority that the guy is in to her. If they're together he doesn't have any reason to screw with us.
>>29375540From the previous thread:> I shall contact my instructor, Lunatic High. She will be more than willing to assist you in discovering the more...fluffy aspects of your Chimera form, and more powers besides.It's a girl.
>>29375770>touch fluffy tail route unlocked!better put some point in animal affinity or something guys.
I was hoping this was actually DX, not the questshit.You've ruined my day.
>>29375888It's got fucking quest in the title. We make it easy for you to filter away, but you cunts just can't shut the fuck up, can you?
>>29375888If only one everyone's day could be ruined by something as petty. I'd be a happier man
>>29375888>>29375922calm down before things get decidedly unmediocre
>>29375888Here lets fix this nowDiscussion is here >>29293651, Just because the OP didn't click on the Catalog before he used the exact same image as a days old discussion thread doesn't mean we need to ride his shit, Also check your filters((Which were not working for me, hence why I'm here))
>>29375328You decide that whatever Ayase decides to do in her spare time is her own business. If she wants to spend time with her weird stalker, maybe it will do both of them some good. Getting some attention might make 'Harry' less of a complete creep and Ayase will finally find some boy willing to put up with her for more than fifteen minutes at a time. You return Ayase's text with a simple 'Good luck' and pray that whatever gods of love exist keep those two nutcases together and away from you.As for yourself, you have your own stalker to deal with, and swiftly make your way back to your house. Though Claire refuses to leave the general vicinity of your house before 10:30PM, she hasn't been brazen enough to enter your home just yet. This is a fact you intend to exploit as you make your way home early for a change."Oh? Were you not going to meet with Ayase today, Captain?"Of course, heading home early won't keep Claire from pestering you along the way. The agent follows just a few feet behind you, probably blankly staring at the back of your head as usual. "You are headed the wrong way. Unless...ah, forgive me. I understand."What does she think she understands this time?"The prospect of having flowers in each hand was too much for a cherry boy like you," Claire strides alongside you and puts her hands up to her cheeks, "But don't worry. I will keep the bashful, cute side of Captain to myself."It's hard to keep from rolling your eyes, but you make it back to your home otherwise unmolested. Claire waves to you as you slam the door shut in her face and collapse on your couch. Now that you're home, you can finally take it easy and...>Go straight to bed. Today was exhausting.>You've been given some basic materials from the UGN. Maybe you should review them...>You've just learned how to use your powers. It might be a good idea to experiment on your own.
>>29376036Read. The more we know about this crap, the better we'll be able to avoid it.
>>29376036>You've been given some basic materials from the UGN. Maybe you should review them...if we know what the shit is going on, we can avoid it better
>>29375966I'm sorry. I originally made that image for my quest. I didn't plan on someone using it for a discussion thread for Double Cross.
>>29376036>You've just learned how to use your powers. It might be a good idea to experiment on your own.Turn one arm xenomorphy use the other arm to hit it with a hammer.
>>29376036Are the materials going to be stuff the expect us to know by the next interview? If so review if not watch T.V then bed
>>29376036>>You've been given some basic materials from the UGN. Maybe you should review them...Do it until we get sleepy, then go to bed.
>>29376036>>You've just learned how to use your powers. It might be a good idea to experiment on your own.Just reiterating that this has my anti-vote>>29375697
>>29376036>You've been given some basic materials from the UGN. Maybe you should review them...
>>29376036>Go straight to bed. Today was exhausting.Fuck bitchz get sleepy
threadly reminder that this is the only firm description we have gotten of the main character so far
>>29376243So a Chimera high school student, So did you get to the part in the core book adventure where you survived a bus explosion?
>>29376036Your eyes fall on a thick book on your kitchen table. The UGN Field Agent's Primer. Supposedly, it has the information on the basics of the Renegade, the Overed, and the UGN itself. You don't really want to read it, it looks long and boring, but you can't stay in the dark forever about these things. You sigh and pick yourself up off your couch. After grabbing a glass of water, you sit down with the book and begin to leaf through it.As you thought, the book is very informative, but dense, dry, and full of overly complex jargon and technical terms. You can't even begin to make out what these diagrams on the vectors of Renegade on inorganic objects actually means. There's not much in the way of a useful glossary either. This is going to take you all night...
>>29376522---You find it hard not to yawn in class. Whatever superhuman vitality the Renegade is granting you doesn't extend to your sleep schedule. Your eyes are bloodshot and you find yourself dozing despite your best efforts. Damn that book. You managed to get through most of it, and you gleaned what you think is a working knowledge of the Renegade and related topics. While it's hard to remember it off-hand, you're confident you could remember the information if something was in front of you.As you doze off once more, you feel something slimy hit the back of your neck. You instinctively clasp your hand over it and bring it in front of your face to inspect it. It's...a spitball? You turn around and see Claire with a straw in her mouth. She points to the ball in your hand and makes a strange series of gestures. You think she wants you to open it. Meanwhile, the bell for break period rings and Professor Earl leaves the room. You see Ayase get up and start to walk over to you.>Go ahead and read the note quickly. You don't want to hold it for any longer than you have to.>This slobbery thing can wait. Apparently Ayase wants to talk.>Drop the note and drag Claire out of room. Whatever she wrote, she can say.
>>29376543>Go ahead and read the note quickly. You don't want to hold it for any longer than you have to.
>>29376543Read the thing and get it over with
>>29376543Throw the spitball in the garbage.
>>29376632Also, this vote took 4 tries to post. I was going to say to ignore Claire entirely, but 4chan thought my post was spam and I had to fiddle with it several times before I could post it.
>>29376543>Drop the note and drag Claire out of room. Whatever she wrote, she can say.No fucking about.
>>29376543>>Go ahead and read the note quickly. You don't want to hold it for any longer than you have to.What in the world does she want now?
>>29376543>OtherHUNKER DOWN AND IGNORE
>>29376543Try and walk out of the room. Don't let Ayase talk to us where Yeager can throw a fit over it.
>"FUCK OFF! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME BE THE PROTAGONIST!!!"
>>29376801I love the Captain's schtick.Can we get a real name, DXR?
>>29376543>Drop the note and drag Claire out of room. Whatever she wrote, she can say.
>>29376543Swallowing your disgust, you start to unfold the slobbery piece of paper. Your senses must still be sharpening, as even from this spit-soaked scrap of paper, you can smell cinnamon candies and vanilla ice-cream in Claire's saliva. She must only eat junk food.Although the ink is splotchy due to the sheer quantitiy of spit Claire has apparently coated the paper with, you're still able to read the note:'Wild Card. I have contacted my Instructor. She will arrive tomorrow morning. Prepare yourself.'...What, that's it? Couldn't she just tell you this normally? You begin to roll up the wet note and think about how to best give Claire a piece of your mind when Ayase speaks up."Um...you know, about yesterday..."You swing around to look at Ayase, still upset with Claire. Apparently, your displeasure is still written all over your face because Ayase yelps and jumps back."N-nevermind! It's nothing!" She quickly heads out of the room, leaving you with a sticky hand and thoroughly confused. Just as you expected, Yeager is already down your throat."Hey, what's the big deal!? You say something to Manaka? I thought I told you to steer clear of her!"You really don't want to deal with this...>Just ignore him, he'll go away.>Tell him you didn't say anything.>Bark back.
>>29377090>Bark back.Fuck off already. You can have her. I don't give a shit you lunatic.
>>29377090Hold a hand flat, somewhere around waist level. "You see this hand? Your intelligence needs to be at least *this* high to talk to me."
>>29377090>Tell him you didn't say anything.if he decides he really wants to go, we'd best be sure the law will be on our side
>>29377090Just ignore him
>>29377090"If you're trying to provoke me, I already know the law will be on my side in a fight"
>>29377090I did. Last night, fucker, remember?
>>29377090>Bark back"I have had a shit day, and not much better last night. Also, no sleep so if you want to go you had best just say so"
>>29377090Yeah, we did yesterday. Wished her luck on her date with with you.
>>29377090"No, and if I was what would you do stab me? Yeah that'll get you far won't it buddy? Oh wait no that's wrong, I have tried but no not today. Come on Claire we're leaving!">Realise we have no idea where to but keep walking anyway
Give him the "Is this nigga serious?" look.
>>29377090You really shouldn't have to deal with this. Yeager keeps breathing down your neck, Ayase bothering you then deciding to go run off, the UGN keeping tabs on your life, this damn virus or whatever the hell it is messing with your mind, and Claire...being Claire. It's not fair. You don't deserve any of this. All you've ever wanted was for people to just shut up and leave you alone. What right do they have to come into your life and start shaking everything up."...Hey! Hey jackass, I'm talking to you!"You lose it. You slam your fist on your desk, shattering the plywood and bending the aluminium. You mean to tell Yeager to shut up, to leave you alone, but all that escapes your mouth is a guttural shout. No. No, a shout isn't right. It's more like a roar. It's a glorious moment of catharsis. All the stress you've built up over the past few weeks just tumbles out of your mouth as you glare at Yeager.He stops and takes a step back. Realizing what you've done, your eyes scan the room. Everyone must be looking at you right now. But they aren't. Actually, it's more like they're refusing to look at you. Their eyes seem to be stuck on the ground, in the books, at the ceiling, and pretty much anywhere but your direction. You feel a hand grab your arm."Captain, we must speak."Much more insistent than she usually is, Claire yanks you up out of your seat and into the hallway. She doesn't stop dragging you until you reach the janitor's closet, at which point she opens it up and throws you inside. After joining you, she shuts the door behind her, leaving you in the dark.
>>29377714You begin to speak but the sudden appearance of a flare of light shuts you up. Claire holds up a single finger, over which a brightly shining ball of light hovers."Captain. I understand this is all new to you, and so you will be given lenience. However, I suggest against using your powers for petty squabbles in the future."What? But you just..."While it was very exhilarating, you must refrain from dominating your classmates in such a manner. Are we understood?">Agree. It's not like you have a choice.>Disagree. Yeager is an Overed too, he was asking for it.>Dominating...?
>>29377714God, now everyone will think we're fucking.
>>29377714the fuck is this? this isn't being mediocre, guys.get on the same page
>>29377757"I didn't even want to use the powers. This whole thing is BLWAGHAHAHGAHGG"..."Wait... Dominating? What?"
>>29377757"I-I didn't mean to, it just sort of happened. It's not my fault knives has got his panties in a twist."
>>29377757>Agree. It's not like you have a choice.Ugh. Fine. Whatever. Pout.
>>29377757Get her to explain what the fuck just happened
>>29377757"didn't mean too, just didnt get much sleep and he was- wait dominating?"
>>29377090>Wild CardNot even an OC-Do-Not-Steal, I'm disapointed
>>29377757>Agree. It's not like you have a choice."But you'll have to make sure that fucker stops breathing down my neck. I can't even look in Ayase's direction without him bitching and moaning."
>>29377757You know I don't want anything to do with this stupid Chimera shit. Just... just tell Yeager to lay the fuck off since it happens to be a very uninterested and inexperienced Chimera he keeps antagonizing.
>>29377957I'm so sorry. I am not terribly good at original-characters-do-not-steal.
>>29377957He literally said in the first thread that this was the sample campaign.
>>29377757I don't even know what the fuck just happened. I just wanted to tell him off. And why don't you go give him that "powers over petty squabbles" line, cause he did it first. Intentionally!
>interpreting then writingI ain't saying "no write ins" but give me an extra couple of minutes to parse.
I just realized that since the QM is using the sample campaign they must have been lying when they said that the sessions were short due to running out of material.
>>29378440You are aware this is /tg/ right we are going to be way off on anything it had in mind and he probably needs to do plenty of works to get us on track
>>29377757>Make feeble excuses.You try to explain that you didn't mean for any of this to happen. The stress just kept piling up and--"I understand."Really? You breathe a sigh of relief and start to unwind. Finally, Claire is being reasonable about something for once. You decide that maybe you've had her wrong this entire time. Sure, she's a little weird, but she's at least able to understand--"It's been getting backed up, hasn't it? I've noticed you haven't taken care of yourself since I have arrived. It's only natural for a young man to want to let loose all over somebody."With her usual blank face, does some kind of strange pose and winks at you."Even so, letting it out on your classmates is still no good, Captain. Should you feel the need to vent your stress, please make use of me. UGN agents like myself have been specially chosen for our receptiveness and soothing talents."You take everything nice you've ever thought about Claire back. Sighing in disgust, you push past her and out of the closet. You return to class and try to explain away your broken desk to your homeroom teacher.---After detention lets out, you notice you missed a text from Ayase. Strangely, it's well composed and there are no emoticons whatsoever.SENDER: MANA-MANA@NCITY.EMLSUBJECT: Let's meet up.I have something I want to talk about with you. Please come to the cafe on 15th Street as soon as you can.Sounds a bit more serious. Claire isn't with you right now, for a change, so maybe you should go before she gets back?>If Ayase is typing correctly, something is wrong. Better go see her.>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?
>>29378440Well it's taking a 4 person scenario, parsing off 3 of the 4 characters, and adding alot of sluff for home life, honestly if played straight this would have been done in part 1.
>>29378507>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?Obvious trap is obvious.
>>29378507>>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?Yeah this text is bullshit. The stalker took her phone.
>>29378507>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?Yaeger wanting to duel us? Yaeger wanting to duel us
>>29378507>>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.Fuck this shit. I'm done. I'm so done.
>>29378440I have to make up a whole lot of extra filler and other works to pad this out. Otherwise, this sample scenario could be done extremely quickly. The repeated retreat from anything unusual is actually helping me stretch this out.
>>29378507No way are we going alone we are stupid
>>29378488Well he has pages 417 to 439 of the Double Cross core book to work with. That's not going to make a long quest, still if you want the cheat sheet, rumor has it there's a PDF floating around
>>29378507>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.Fuck this
>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.
>>29378580Why go at all? She's not our friend. Our character hates her. And we're trying to be mediocre and never get into any serious situations.Let's just go home.
>>29378573When we get to combat, are we going to use the system or just generic rolls? Because now that the PDF's out, it'd be easier to explain and make for a better showcase.
>>29378635Because if it is a trap we have a danagerous guy after and they should handle now instead of it getting the jump on us
>>29378507>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.
>>29378507>>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.Anti-Mediocrefags go home
>>29378671I'd love to use the original system, but it would take a long time to resolve things. We won't be using it.
>>29378507>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.
>>29378717Yeah, exploding crits don't work for quests.
>>29378507>>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.Yaeger obviously stole the phone and is trying to duel us. And we want no part of his bullshit.Homeward Bound!
>>29378507This stupid god damn...>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?You hide. We're proving the fucker is out to get us.
>>29378507>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?We're moody not stupid.I'm going to bed not so guys, if you run into combat our strategy should be to run away unless we're actually leaving someone to die.
>>29378507>>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks
>>29378507Home, but tell Claire. Ayase might be in real trouble; we should get someone else to handle that.
>>29378507>>...Maybe it would be best to get Claire first?Claire? I'm worried Yeager might have gone off the deep end after my little incident.do you guys voting to go home (and previously, basically ignore her when she was meeting with yeager) feel like the Captain doesn't think Yeager is going to kill someone eventually, or just not care?
>>29378507>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.I'm thinking we order a pizza.
>>29378778I'm pretty much playing this as Captain gives no fucks whatsoever about anyone else and just wants to be left alone. Unfortunately for him fate keeps shitting on him for laughs.
>>29378815All the better to shit on fate back.
Guys people being murdered is not mediocre, at least let Claire know.
>>29378507>Freedom is sweet. You should head home quickly.No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no. None of this bullshit. Captain is the captain of the go home club, not captain of the walk into obvious traps team.
>>29378815like, I am all for not giving fucks, but letting potentially lethal scenarios go unremarked is literally criminal negligence. The only way I could be behind it is if we took one Anon's assessment more seriously and said the Captain was Severely depressed.
>>29378942>like, I am all for not giving fucks, but letting potentially lethal scenarios go unremarked is literally criminal negligence.We have no duty to act, so it literally isn't.
>>29378671That would actually make this a "game" and not a creative writing session
>>29378975Double Cross has exploding crits, m8.
>>29378942>potentiallythere you goit's not criminal negligencestop acting like you know shit when you clearly don't
>>29378942>>29378952We should just get Claire to deal with it. Solves the problem and gets her out of our hair temporarily. Of course, Claire will inevitably drag the fight to Captain's house or otherwise get Captain involved against his wishes.
>>29378975What's your point? Several other quests have used systems before.
>>29379024The optimal solution would be to tell her that we want to let Ayase down easy but we know we'd just blow up, so she should go handle it. But >writing has already begun, so it's too late.
>>29379009What's wrong with those?
>>29379076They're fine, but horrible in quest format.
>>29378507You quickly type out 'not now' and send the text without a second thought. You shut your phone and head home, thankful to not have some maladjusted teenager trying to be your best friend.It's been a long time since you walked home alone. Your enhanced senses let you take in the sights, sounds, and smells in ways you never have before. This peaceful feeling of not needing to go anywhere or see anyone is something you wish you could hold on to forever."As expected..."But of course it couldn't last. Even before this newcomer spoke, you detected their smell. They smell of cheap cologne, chewing tobacco, and blood. You turn around to see a man in a cheap suit walking toward you. The yellow lenses of his sunglasses and clearly bleached hair strike you as especially gaudy, and you have to suppress the urge to laugh at him."I've been watching you for a while now, so I knew if I was able to get that little UGN pest away, you'd just come straight home. Thanks for being so predictable."You tense up. If this person isn't with the UGN, they must be..."Exactly right. I am from False Hearts. That government run trash would have you believe we are simple terrorists, but in reality, we are fighting for our freedoms. You of all people should know what it's like to be monitored by that group. It's humiliating, isn't it?"Well, you can't deny that..."We don't have long, so I'll be to the point. Come with me and join False Hearts. It'll be best for everyone.">Refuse>Ask where Claire is>Run away
>>29379199I'm not joining the UGN and I'm not joining the False Hearts, can't you guys just leave me alone?>go to our room
>>29379199>Refuse>Run awaya sneak disser that's that shit i don't like
>>29379199Say no and walk off
>>29379199>Be unexpected."Do you ever just watch the clouds and take a nap?" Then lay down on the ground and stare at the sky.
>>29379199>Refuse>Tell him you're joining neither the False Hearts or the UGN>Go home
>>29379199not exactly a compelling orator, are you? If you'd been watching me so carefully you'd know I'm not interested in either of your sides bullshit.
>>29379199Piss off, we aren't interested in fighting for any cause.
>>29379199"you know, the UGN offered me dental at least, what are you offering?"
>>29379199>>29379291Oh god, this
>>29379199Would all you people leave me the fuck alone?
>>29379199>Run awayTo hell with the conspiracies, the agendas, and all the people trying to force a fight.
>>29379199>Join them"Fuck it, you already seem lets crazy than the rest of them"
>>29379314This, if this guy was actually watching he should know by now that Captain just wants to go home.Just say "No" without stopping and just walk on past him.
>>29379199>RefuseI don't want to be UGN, I don't want to be False Hearts.
>>29379199>It'll be best for everyone.People don't drop this sort of line if they intend to take no for an answer.
>>29379199You tell the man where he can shove his False Hearts and keep walking towards your house."Wrong answer."Before you know it, you've already been thrown to the ground. The pavement cracks underneath the sheer weight of the blow, and the wind is knocked out of you. A giant, crimson claw holds you to the ground by your throat. Your eyes follow the arm of the claw a full 20 meters away, all the way back to its source: the False Hearts agent."I was hoping you'd join us while you still had your wits about you, but I guess that was just being too greedy," Blood begins to seep out from his eyes, mouth, and ears, and it coats the rest of his body, which begins to gain mass at an incredible rate, "I guess I'll just have to kill you a couple dozen times first. You'll be positively giddy to join after that."The pressure increases, and you feel your windpipe collapse. Panicking, you summon up all your strength and break free of the claw's grip, jumping back. You put a hand to your crushed throat and feel your body already healing. In just moments, you can breathe again, the bruises vanishing into nothing.The monster of a man steps forward, his body now completely engulfed by blood and almost twice his previous size and stature. Wings have sprouted from his body, and a large, spiked tail drags behind him. Each of his four limbs ends in six talons, all formed of solid blood. "Oh? Not many new Overeds can withstand an attack from Diablos. You should be proud of yourself."A twisted face with glowing yellow eyes slides over the agent's, Diablos', human face."Now, let's see if you can dance with the devil!"COMBAT TUTORIAL TO FOLLOW
>>29379846Diablos? Can we just laugh at him and walk away?
>>29379563> You turn around to see a man in a cheap suit walking toward you. The yellow lenses of his sunglasses and clearly bleached hair strike you as especially gaudy, and you have to suppress the urge to laugh at him.You can't expect anything good to come from a Gendo Cosplayer
>>29379846This man is an obstacle to going home. We will give him a choice; he can leave and go home, or we will send him home in a body bag.
>>29379846Diablos? What, did your coven give you that name?
>>29379919Do it anyways
>>29379919Can at least laugh at him? Because he is trying way to hard.
>>29379941We kill this guy and his friends will declare open season on us. We won't be safe in our own home.
Why do they give so much of a fuck about the Captain? Why can't they go grab knifey mcunstablestalker?
>>29380025we should straight up ask him
Guys laughing can be done while fighting.
>>29380025>implying they haven't already
>>29380025Because he's a member of the UGN. We're unaffiliated.
>>29380077No he isn't. He completed his 8 years of surveillance and now the UGN leaves him alone.
>>29379846Do Overeds/Chimera not die, just lose sanity points every time they revive?
>>29379846[ Combat is performed via a simple rock-paper-scissors triangle. You, as the players, have the advantage of always acting after your opponent or opponents. Through cues in the descriptive text, you must determine which of three tactics to adopt. Adopting the correct tactic causes you to gain a point. Adopting an incorrect tactic will cause your opponent to gain a point. If you both select the same tactic, both you and your opponents gain a point. All combat takes place over three exchanges, each worth one point. The first to gain 2 out of the 3 points is the victor. While losing a fight will not typically cause the quest to end, it will lead to unpleasant and usually severe consequences. The three tactics are as follows:Strike: Strikes are fast, precision based attacks. Any attack which seems like it may rely on overwhelming speed or pinpoint accuracy is likely a Strike. As a general rule of thumb, most mundane gunfire is considered a Strike. Strikes defeat Crashes, but are defeated by Guards.Crash: A Crash is a highly telegraphed, but extremely powerful blow. Any attack which seems to rely mostly on the brute strength or overwhelming force is likely a Crash. As a general rule of thumb, most thrown objects, like trees or boulders, are considered Crashes. Crashes defeat Guards, but are defeated by Strikes.Guard: A Guard is a defensive posture or evasive stance which is used to set up a counter-blow. Any attack which appears as if it could be a feint or which seems to be a stalling tactic is likely to be a Guard. Guards defeat Strikes, but are defeated by Crashes. ]QUEST RESUMING AFTER THIS POST.
>>29380154basically, yes.Insane overed quest may prove amusing. if only because Cap will still not give a fuck
>>29380154The resurect Ability, lets them come back from incapasitation, but with increased encroachment, to much encroachment, and you become one of them
>>29380198Suikoden duel style. Interesting.
>>29380198What the... but where's my level up system? Where's my XP micromanagement? Where are my endless debates about specializations? How do I measure my character's e-peen?We can still pick up simple powers, right?
>>29380198COMBAT MODE, ACTIVATEFORM OFENDLESS NIGHTMARES
>>29380316Yesss. Operation Fluffy Tail is a go.
>>29380198let's go with Strikehe's big and poweful, and seems to want to impress us. I think he's going for a Crash, so we should Strike first and break his move, then RUN THE FUCK AWAY
>>29380333that's a shitty xenolisk design, it's lower body/tail wasn't effected at all.
>>29380198Diablos roars and leaps at you ripping up the ground with his claws as he advances. His gleaming eyes never leave your form as you jump backwards, evading his attacks. Finally, you can evade no more and intercept his claws with your hands. You feel the bones in your wrist break from the sheer force of his attacks, but you refuse to let go. "Good! Good! I almost wouldn't believe you'd never been in a fight before!" His tail whips around and slashes out the tendons in your legs. No longer able to stand, you slump forward on your knees as Diablos laughs wildly. The False Hearts agent then leaps into the sky, high above you hovering a bit due to his wings, then dive bombs towards you. Your legs haven't healed yet, and he's going to be here any second...>Strike>Crash>Guard
>>29380448>strikethough normally I would say evade like a motherfucker
>>29380448That's pretty telegraphed. Strike! Roll to the side and use his own momentum to smash his face into the ground.
>>29380448Strike the heart!
>>29380448sounds like a classic crash, soStrike>>29380482I agree, my typical reaction to a highly telegraphed attack would be dodge
>>29380448>Strike that shit.
>>29380501see, 3 playthroughs of metal gear rising have conditioned me to parry
Oh god, Fate/Extra flashbacks
>>29380485This, last minute dodge and Strike in the side.
>>29380448>it turns out this was actually a feint, and the Captain is about to get punked.
>>29380448>Strike SuccessfulYou can't move your legs yet, but that doesn't mean you're defenseless. You watch Diablos as he closes in toward you, biding your time until the right moment. You can't see the moment, but something deep within you suddenly surges. You throw yourself to the side, rolling as best as you are able.Diablos crashes into the pavement, you can see the blood exoskeleton he has made for himself crack and buckle under the strain. A slight tingling in the back of your legs tells you that you can move again, and you leap from your position towards the stunned devil. You knock Diablos to the ground with relative ease and begin to pummel his face. Each time you strike him, your hands grow more and more gnarled, your claws emerging from their dormant state. You eventually slam your taloned fist down onto his skull, hearing a sickening crunch as you do so. ...Is it over? "Not bad." Diablos's tail once more catches you off guard, impaling you. Stunned by the pain, you can do nothing but grasp the spiked appendage as it lifts you up off the ground. Blood spills from your lips as you struggle to breathe.Diablos stands up, his crushed head filling back out. He wipes the spilled brain matter from his head as if it was nothing and laughs."You're pretty good! I'm going to love breaking you!"Ten more tails sprout from Diablos's back, each tipped with a long blade of bone. They shoot out from behind hem and begin to stab you over and over again. You can hardly see them move, but the searing pain in your body lets you know just how many times you've been stabbed. Shit...if this keeps up, even you'll die...>Strike>Crash>Guard
>>29380765>GuardOh god, now it reminds me of the Monsoon fight
>>29380765Guard.Chitinous armor, go!
>>29380765guard!and then run! Man, I hope our handler doesn't show up to save the day, that'd be painfully in-genre
>>29380765>Guard.Armor up. Hopefully grab a tail and pull it off him.
>>29380765this system feels so weird. I like that it is something new, but it makes the 'right' tactical choice something I wouldn't suggest.Guard
Syndrome chat: confirmed Bram Stoker (congealed blood weapons), confirmed Chimaera (wings, tail), probable Exile (for the head injury). Sound right?
How is the guard strike block thing even going to work against opponents that don't use physical things? What about against opponents who are physically weak to the point that their crash would be weaker than someone like Diablos' strike?
>>29380765Guard those tails.
>>29380911Incorrect, He's demonstrated 3 syndromes, try breed, Chimera, Exile, Bram Stroker
>>29380911>Bram Stokerthat is actually one of the strains? is there some overarching pattern for the names?
>>29380997nope, just whatever sounds cool
>>29380997Read the book they explain it far better than we have time for
>>29380922against something like a blackmage, a crash isn't him winding up for an overhead blow with his staff. It is a him charging his lazer.
>>29380922I think it boils down to:Skillful action/attackStrong attackDefensive action-with good one-word names.We're seeing that we are getting hosed along the way since Diablos is pretty tough, but we're doing alright in the overall fight since we're trying to make good tactical choices.
>>29380922The real question is how the system plays with syndromes with support/manipulation power sets, like Solaris, Orcus and Neumann.>>29380985...that's pretty much exactly what I said, dude.
>>29380765>Guard SuccessfulYou just have to endure it. There's just no choice at this point. You try to close off your mind and focus on just staying alive. Again and again, Diablos runs you through with his tails, tearing out bone, sinew, organs, anything they can find and dig out of your helpless form."Done already? I suppose I shouldn't have expected better from a newborn like you."You can feel Diablos relax. Now's your chance. You will your hollowed out frame to move just one more time, grasping the largest tail, the one which is holding you up in the air. With all the strength you can muster, and more than you ever though possible, you rip the blade off of Diablos's tail.Dialbos howls and you drop to the ground, but not before throwing the severed tail as hard as you can into his chest. It pierces through the armor of blood and rips out the other side, where it continues for several blocks. Diablos freezes for just a moment.As you thought. Even an Overed as strong as he is finds it hard to go without a heart. In that moment, before he can recover, you push your skeletal frame to stand one more time. You raise your clawed hand, the only one you can still move, over his head. Extending your talons as far apart as they will go, you slash downward with all your might.In a single blow, you chop Diablos into pieces, the slashed bits of his body falling away and melting into a pool of blood. You see the blood take on a life of its own and slither away froom you at a breakneck pace.Damn. Even after all that, he's still alive...You however, are in no condition to run right now. Totally exhausted, you fall over and lose consciousness. ((Small break while I get some dinner. We're going to shoot for questing at least five more hours.))
>>29381192>We're going to shoot for questing at least five more hours.))
>>29381192>We're going to shoot for questing at least five more hoursAwesome
>>29380997Here's the syndromes overview from the book. Spoilered in case you care.
>>29381192>We're going to shoot for questing at least five more hours.Shit, goodbye sleep. You'll be missed.
>>29381192>In a single blow, you chop Diablos into pieces, the slashed bits of his body falling away and melting into a pool of blood. You see the blood take on a life of its own and slither away froom you at a breakneck pace.DRINK HIM.
>>29381286Can't Anon. 2tired
>>29381192>We're going to shoot for questing at least five more hours.Fuck it, let's see if I can go all night. it's winter break anyways
>>29381286That sounds like a good way to get chestbursted.
>>29381192>You see the blood take on a life of its own and slither away from you at a breakneck pace.No, fucker. Get back here. We have to explain how we aren't at war with you bastards.
>>29381192Alright, got myself some pizza and mountain dew. Gimme a couple minutes to eat a little bit of those and I'll start >writing when I'm done. I'll let you know just to be sure.
>>29381575Just wondering, but are you going to just quit whenever you run out of prefab material or are you going to try to come up with some things on your own?
>>29381653I had planned to do all the scenarios, letting /tg/ do what they will with them, but seeing as scans are now out, I'll have to change up my plans after the end of this scenario. When I continue after the end of this, I'll probably still use many quickstart and "official" characters as the basis for my design, but beyond that it'll be under new direction.
>>29381653Poor Op's already half way out of script for this prefab, and it's already off the rails
Am I the only one who thinks Clair probably looks like Senjougahara?
>>29381703How do you plan on handling Neumann/Orcus/Solaris in the RPS system?
>>29381750In mostly the same way. When I can, I'll let their other Syndromes do the heavy lifting for simplicity, but there are many ways to interpret attacks under this RPS system.
>>29381256Orcus seems broken as fuck.
>>29381829Manipulate =/= 100% control.
>>29381892Tell that to the Touhoufags.
>>29381192You are having a wonderful dream. You are a kid again, and it's Satuday morning. Your parents are actually home, and you're sitting down with your father to watch BlastRanger, the favorite show of all young boys and girls. He's actually showing interest in the show, asking you about which characters do what and how it all works. You look over your shoulder and see your mother in the kitchen, preparing a breakfast of eggs, bacon, and pancakes, humming a tune to herself as she works. The sun is shining, and it's warm and pleasant. You couldn't be happier.You hear a knocking at the side door and look over. Through the glass, you see a little girl in a sundress. While you can't make out her face, you know it must be your best friend! She always comes to watch BlastRanger with you. You get up from your seat to go greet her. God, it's been forever since you saw her. You can't wait to see her again, even if it is a dream. You see her move her mouth."Wild Card."Oh god."Captain."Please no. Not now. Not yet."Wake up, Captain."You open your eyes and sit up quickly. You look around the room and you see Claire sitting at the edge of your bed, looking at you. Your first thought is to your body, but you're once again unharmed. It's like nothing ever happened to you at all. As you fully become aware, you can smell another person in the house. A strong, sour smell of alcohol."That was close, Captain. Do not engage enemies on your own again. You are still unskilled. Of course, if you'd be willing to join with me, I'd be happy to teach you more of combat...">There's someone in your house. You need to go check.>Reluctantly agree to joining the UGN.

>>29382088>>There's someone in your house. You need to go check.this ain't your house bitchdon't go inviting random people inalso fuck your organization
>>29382088Clarie, from what you've seen of us, do you honestly think we're the type of person the seeks this shit out?
>>29382088Diffrent Anon but >>Once more stubbornly refuse to join the UGN. Ask Claire where she was.then vomit
>>29382088Point out that engaging Diablos on our own was in no way even remotely our fault or what we wanted to do, then...>Once more stubbornly refuse to join the UGN. Ask Claire where she was.After all, this is just one isolated occurance, the probability of this happening to us all the time is really low.
>>29382197Most of your interactions with Claire are at the very minimum passive aggressive.
>>29382298They know where we live and they're crazy.
Damn, get the shit kickedripped out of us and don't even have the injuries to skip school or excuse us from Ayase's meet up.
>>29382088>Consolidating some very closely related choices. Sorry if this upsets you....Who did Claire let in to your house? You spring from your bed, not bothering to find where you put your pants and rush towards the stairs in your shorts."Ah, Captain, wait I can expla--"You can't be bothered to listen to Claire right now. You have to investigate this before it gets any worse. You leap down your staircase and look around, following the overwhelming smell of alcohol. You walk into the kitchen and peer around the corner to see the fridge door open and a long silver tail swishing about from behind it. You hear the clinking of glass bottles in your fridge. Already upset, you shout at the intruder, demanding they show themselves.The tail stops moving, and you see a head pop out from behind the door. Golden eyes peer at you, and thick, silver eyebrows raise themselves in confusion.
>>29382679"Already up, huh? Was sure you'd be out for a hell of a lot longer, but I ain't that good a doctor. Gotta leave that to Void." The intruder kicks the door shut and approaches you, raising a bottle to her lips and taking a long drink. Clear liquid spills out from her mouth and stains her shirt. She appears to be wearing some kind of business suit and skirt, but from how sloppy and dishevelled it is, she clearly hasn't changed in several days.God, the smell. That's gotta be the strongest alcohol you've ever encountered. You feel like you're going to vomit just from the vapor. The woman notices your discomfort and sighs, corking the bottle and sitting down on your counter. She runs a hand through her thick, silver hair and looks at you with displeasure."What? I can get as drunk as I like. Don't you start lecturing me before even saying hello."You grunt. This must be another UGN goon. Claire finally joins you, stepping between the two of you and pointing to the new woman."Captain, this is Lunatic High. She is the one who taught me everything I know. Instructor Luna, this is Wild Card, my charge.">Try to be polite. Somebody needs to be.>Ask what the hell she was doing in your fridge. How long have you been out?>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.
>>29382696>>Ask what the hell she was doing in your fridge. How long have you been out?That's my fridge! And take a bath, you hippy!
>>29382696Breakfast Captain no shits is too tired to get worked up
>>29382696>Try to be polite. Somebody needs to be.Clearly this is a woman that appreciates not giving a fuck.
>>29382696>She is the one who taught me everything I know.Well, that explains some things.
>>29382696>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.Fuck this shit.
>>29382696>take a deep, calming breathe before responding to Claire."I appreciate you bringing me an instructor but if you can't get her washed soon I'm going to throw up. So get her in a shower or get her out of here for now. Please."
>>29382716This. But not in our shower. Use Claire's.
>>29382696>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.be polite if possible, but make it clear you are in no mood for shit until you get coffee/tea/coke in your system
>>29382696>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.Oh. I thought a herd of hobos wandered in at first. This is... whatever... Cheerios. I need cereal.
>>29382696Touch fluffy tail.just kidding.>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.
>>29382696>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.Don't invite your shit sucking friends into my house. You have your own fucking base, go there for this shit.
>>29382696>You're too spent for this. Get dressed and get breakfast.I'm looking at you this way because you smell and look like a dumpster in summer. Drink all you like, as long as you get a bath and clean clothes on.
>>29382887We sorta kinda agreed to this I think.
>>29382887They're only here because they brought us here.
I hope we don't go full rude for no reason. This is Claire's fault, not the silver alcoholic.
>>29382696I wanted to be indignant she was in the house, let alone the fridge, but she probably had to scrape our ass off the sidewalk, so... begrudging tolerance.Time to turn up the deflector shields, the Captain needs some industrial strength nega-fucks.
>>29382938You should bathe when you go over to other people's houses. Even I know this.
>>29382971This. Just reading the description of this sloppy bitch is making me nauseous
We need to talk to the Chief.We aren't going to join False Hearts, and they probably aren't going to leave us alone..But almost every single person we've met from the UGN is completely out of their mind, except for the Chief.Or, at least if she is crazy, it is the hard to notice kind. Like our own obsession with mediocrity.We need to see that the UGN isn't all crazy if they really expect us to join.
>>29383162Or at least get the crazies out of our life.(Not actually going to happen though.)
>>29383162>Like our own obsession with mediocrity.Now I can't get rid of the idea that Captain is a mix between Ii-chan from Zaregoto and Kazuki from Hakomari. Sociopathic yandere breakdown when?
>>29383220around the time he realizes that the best friend he was remembering in his dream actually is Claire
Kill them all, Captain. It's the only solution. The only way. They'll never stop trying to make you do things until they die.
>>29383185There is no plan to join the loony clubs.
>>29382696You're far too tired and it's far too early in the morning for something like this. Wordlessly, you turn around and head upstairs. In a haze, you find a spare uniform and get yourself dressed, washing your face and brushing your teeth as if nothing is wrong. After you're done, you head back downstairs and get yourself a nice hot cup of coffee. As the pot is readying itself, you can't help but notice Lunatic eyeing you with an amused expression on her face. Immediately, your eyes fall to her tail, which has continues to wag back and forth again. You've gotten over the smell somewhat, but having two uninvited guests in your house has still left you on edge. You ignore her and pour your cup of coffee, trying to drown out the smell of sweat and alcohol with an aromatic, columbian blend. After your third or fourth cup, you notice you're not feeling as peppy as you normally do and go for another."Don't even bother."You see Lunatic taking another big drink from her bottle, her cheeks are completely flushed and she is laying her head on the table, grinning at you."Your body's finally gone into overdrive hasn't it? Bet you didn't even notice before now, but nothing that weak will ever affect you again. Say bye-bye to coffee, drugs, and all other substance abuse, Card."You frown and stubbornly drink another cup. Even if you don't want it to be, it's true. You don't even feel a little bit of energy, and you've had a whole pot to yourself. You look at the empty pot, suddenly overcome with a feeling of loss.
>>29383258and her disappearance after the UGN picked her up is what led to his chronic depression
>>29383281"There, there, little boy, it's alright. Luna knows how you feel." Before you can react, her tail has worked its way up around the backside of your neck and is now rubbing against your cheeks. You'd think the smell would be unbearable but it's not. All you can think of is...SOFT!!So soft! You feel like you could lose yourself in this gentle feeling forever! It doesn't smell bad! In fact, it smells great! You feel your hand instinctively reach up to pet this glorious, supreme fur but you summon up all your will to put it back down.You won't be swayed by things like this!"Wow! What willpower on this boy! I'm impressed, Bullets. You got yourself a real man here!">Ask Claire where she was yesterday.>Ask Lunatic what she plans to teach you.>Ask Lunatic why she still drinks if her body can't get drunk
>>29383281>but nothing that weak will ever affect you again>No Coffee>Ever>AgainFall to your knees and scream to the heavens
>>29383310>>Ask Claire where she was yesterday.>>Ask Lunatic what she plans to teach you.>>Ask Lunatic why she still drinks if her body can't get drunk
>>29383310Don't touch me!>Ask Claire where she was yesterday.
>>29383310Walk over to the bag of coffee grounds, eye twitching from the sheer effort required, and pour them all into our mouth.EAT THE GROUNDS. EAT THEM ALL UP.
>>29383281>bye to coffeeEnd thyself. Love is over.
>>29383310Go out and buy better coffee.
>>29383220Sociopathic yandere breakdown soon, fellow Overed.Particularly with the increasing stress from non-normal things continuing to happen. Our outburst at Yeager earlier showing the cracks beginning to form..
>>29383310>Ask Claire where she was yesterday.but try to do it in a tone that doesn't say "I got my ass kicked and it is all your fault"
>>29383335please don't make me infodump all at once ;_;
>>29383185No, we're not joining, even if there are normal sane people. Because then they own our ass, and our free time to do jack shit goes down the drain under "black ops" and "special missions" and other crap the Capt would hate to do.
>>29383310>it smells great!This bitch just tried to use pheromones on us. Kick her ass out.
>>29383267>>29383220Combine the two. We snap and decide that we should just murder our life back to normal. We kill everyone who causes abnormality. >>29383310>Take a moment to grieve for coffee.>>Ask Lunatic what she plans to teach you.>Ask Lunatic why she still drinks if her body can't get drunk"So, you taught Claire everything she knows? Was she always this crazy, or does that come with the territory at UGN?"
>>29383360If you don't want players to demand infodump, you need to frame the choice restriction within a plausible situation.
>>29383310glare at her, go to the pantry, pull out a bag of Death Wish Coffee
>>29383310>Ask Lunatic why she still drinks if her body can't get drunkSo is that rotgut she's got strong enough to overcome her tolerance?
>>29383310>Scream to the heavens for the injustice that has befallen upon you.
>>29383379This. We draw the line at mind control.
>>29383310Ask her if Chimeras can get a pick me up by producing adrenaline, or if we'd need another syndrome to get that. Because we are not going through our life without stimulants. Er, don't phrase it that way, though. We don't want Claire spinning it into an innuendo.
>>29383351Yes, this pleases Zog...
>>29383272>>29383365I wasn't suggesting joining, so much as telling the Chief that everyone is crazy.Also, Chief X Captain.
>>29383379I think that's just fluffy tail magic, man.
>>29383392>Death Wish Coffee>googleHuh, actually a thing,I support this notion!Abnormal coffee strength is GO!
>>29383518The reaction to the tail is far too unusual for the character due to the nature he's been played as having. Something is up unless we're talking about royalty tier fur, which is doubtful considering the character's introduction.
>>29383644It's a chimera ability it causes people to react like that, no really it is. Fine coat or some such
>>29383644There's a Chimera power that's literally called Supreme Fur, and it's pretty much exactly that.
>>29383310You get up and head over to your cabinet. The packages of coffee grounds are lined up neatly. You really did like your coffee. With great sadness, you take each package down from their shelf and drop them, one by one, into the garbage bin. You feel like you're burying a close friend, but there's just nothing to be done at this point. You reach over and grab your coffee pot, with the intent to throw it away too, and you glance over at Lunatic who is still drinking merrily. She looks at you and licks the extra drink from her lips."Curious? Well, this is actually made from Overed spit. Shining Void's, to be particular. You met her right? Nice gal. It takes something this strong to affect us at all," she takes a drink, "And even then, it wears off in a couple minutes."You glance down at your coffee pot, considering what potential benefits the UGN may, in fact, have for you and your lifestyle."I know that look, but you can forget about it! I asked for coffee once and you don't want to know what she gave me!"Without a second thought, you throw your now useless coffee pot into the trash. Grabbing your bag, you head out for school, eager to leave this place behind. As usual, Claire is just a few steps behind you. You hear Lunatic shambling about, but she never makes it past the door.
>>29383763Everything else goes pretty much like normal. Ayase is absent today, but Yeager is here so you don't suspect foul play on his part. And that brings you to your current situation, during lunch period. You tried to escape to the practically abandoned boy's bathroom as usual, but Claire followed you. Cramped into the small stall, Claire nibbles on her sandwich and chocolate milk whilst leaning up against the door. This closeness is unusual especially in light of yesterday. Where the hell was she?"I cannot apologize enough, Captain. Diablos distracted me with a double of himself. When I felled it, it turned out to merely be a decoy made of blood. I'm so ashamed." You can't tell if she really means that, since her face gives away nothing."I was sure I was doing what you wished, and keeping dangerous elements away from your independent-but-easy-going lifestyle.">Well, at least she tried...>You died several times because of that mistake!>You can't even retort. You can only think about how many rumors this is going to spread...
>>29383671Yeah, every syndrome has one or two powers that are just for aesthetics and showing off. For example, Bram Stokers can create homunculi out of blood. One of their powers lets them make a whole crowd of them that are useless for anything more than an entourage, but don't count against their limit for servants. Or Balors can get the ability to fly really cheaply, but at such slow speed that it's only practical use is looking cool. Morpheus syndromes can make awesome food out of thin air. There's a bunch of neat little powers like that.
>>29383786>Well, at least she tried...
>>29383786>You can't even retort. You can only think about how many rumors this is going to spread that we won't give a fuck about.Until people bother us about them.
>>29383786>You can't even retort. You can only think about how many rumors this is going to spread...
>>29383800>One of their powers lets them make a whole crowd of them that are useless for anything more than an entourage,hey man, you can totally have them perform thriller. not useless at all
>>29383786>Well, at least she tried...We don't have the knowledge of the syndromes yet to call her on the enhanced senses her Angel Halo is supposed to give her. So we can't be too angry with her.
>>29383786>Well, at least she tried...I'm surprised she was actually trying to help.
>>29383786>Well, at least she tried...thank you for attempting to respect my lifestyle choices.and presumably not molesting me in my sleep
>>29383864>and presumably not molesting me in my sleepYou cannot presume that. You were only in your underwear when you woke up.
>>29383864>presumably not molesting me in my sleepnow, let's not get ahead of ourselves here
>>29383893can we ask then? Lets just ask if she has ever done anything to us while we we're asleep
>>29383786>>Well, at least she tried...>"I was sure I was doing what you wished, and keeping dangerous elements away from your independent-but-easy-going lifestyle.""So you are at least trying to be accommodating. Huh.">>29383893Oh goddamnit.
>>29383910To prevent any molestation we just need to get some sort of fluffy animal to distract her in break ins.
>>29383963But then she'd be molesting our pet, I couldn't do that to some poor dog
I realize now that Stockholm Syndrome has well and truly set in, and more worryingly I don't particularly mind.
>>29383786>Well, at least she tried...Appreciate the thought, at least."keeping dangerous elements away from your independent-but-easy-going lifestyle" is exactly what we want, after all.
>>29384119>Stockholm SyndromeI want to make some kind of joke about this, but I'm too tired to come up with one. Well, maybe some kind of opportunity will present itself eventually in the quest for a witty remark making use of it.
>>29383786Well, at least she tried...Claire drops her sandwich and drink on the ground. Immediately she clasps her hands over your own and looks into your eyes."This was the first time you have ever given me such praise. I will not forget this day, Captain, even if a hundred years were to pass. I will endeavour to work much, much harder to protect you and your way of life. Next time I will not leave you to fight a battle on your own, no matter what the circumstances are."You can see something shining in her eyes. If you had to put an name to it, it would be 'expectations'. ...Yeah, that's just great. Feeling incredibly awkward, something that has been bugging you since this morning comes to mind. Just how did you end up in your underwear? You know that Diablos practically shredded your clothes in that fight, but you still had most of your pants together."Yes, that was me. I fetched you a new pair from the convenience store and dressed you myself."What? She didn't do anything else, did she?"...Well, I attempted to stimulate the growth of your soon-to-be luxurious fur. Instructor Luna told me that it would come in much faster with tender care and massages."You feel very dirty right now. Giving a pained smile to Claire, you immediately leave the bathroom, fighting back the urge to scream with every fiber of your being. Not only is she going to be sticking even closer to you, but now she's touching you in your sleep!When class finally lets out, you're in a daze. You can vaguely make out Claire saying something to you as you stare out the window, wondering where your freedom and dignity went. What is she saying?>You have to go train with Luna. That's right. Lunatic High came here to teach you to use your powers with more control, didn't she?>Ayase being sick after that attack is suspicious. You know you shouldn't, but you do need to check up on her.>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.
>>29384119I think it's less Stockholm and more an overpowering depression resulting from our glorious sweet coffee (it was so beautiful) being taken from us. I think we're just too apathetic to be a jerk right now.
>>29384257>D. Go home
>>29384257........ Good God Claire.All those option require effort..... Headquarters it is
>>29384257>You need to pick up some items from headquarters. Chief's orders.
>>29384257>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.Hopefully some sort of extreme narcotics, depressants, or opiates. Really anything mind altering will do.
I notice I'm slowing down somewhat. Sorry about that. I'll try to pick up the pace somewhat.
>>29384257>>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.She couldn't have given us these when we were their for our check up?
>>29384257>You have to go train with Luna. That's right. Lunatic High came here to teach you to use your powers with more control, didn't she?If we can grow spikes in our sleep, then Claire can't touch us anymore.
>>29384257>You have to go train with Luna. That's right. Lunatic High came here to teach you to use your powers with more control, didn't she?I want to become best xenomorphthe tyrannosaurus xenomorph
>>29384257>Ayase being sick after that attack is suspicious. You know you shouldn't, but you do need to check up on her.Sigh. It is true.
>>29384257>>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.
>>29384309We aren't having anyone spit in our mouth!
>>29384257>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.While we're there, ask if the Overed resistance to drugs also prevents psychiatric medications from working on them. It would explain so much. And in case it doesn't, we're going to be in need of some anti-anxiety pills soon, so can Shining Void write us up a script?
>>29384318what if we grew spiked, furry tails? could she resist?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nyHPIcbn88
>>29384257>>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.Ask her if we can have some meth to smoke when we wake up
>>29384352So like one of those cacti that look fuzzy, but touching it will fuck you up?
>>29384390yeah, that stuff.maybe see if we can get our body to produce hallucinogens to coat the spines, so if we wake up and claire is stoned out of her mind we know exactly what happened
>>29384318>You need to pick up some items from Headquarters. Chief's orders.Once the Captain can bring himself to look at Claire."No more 'stimulating my growth' in my sleep."OOC baiting a "Oh, you'd prefer you were awake"
>>29384390I had the mental image of tiny angry faced cactus shout "Bitch I will fuck fucking stab you"
>>29384390Sounds about right.
>>29384347Not spit just Extreme Coffee or drugs made with CheifTech™.
>>29384352I.. what..I don't even what I'm listening to.
>>29384449Neither do I, but I'm glad to have discovered this guy. These songs are pretty great. So thanks, anon who posted that.
>>29384449Not familiar with game of the year 2011, eh?
>>29384499my pleasure citizen!
>>29384509Looks to be more monster girl (quest) related, actually.
>>29384517the spike tv award show? i don't watch that.
>>29384563QUICK! FLEE! Before you innocence be tainted!
>>29384563...I can't tell if you are joking or legit never heard of monster girl assault
>>29384390can we color ourselves orange?
>>29384563eheh, no more like the /v/i/d/ya game awards (it actually really was in the vidya gaem awards, don't remember if it was just a mention in the afterword though). I checked the video description just to make sure the title was in there, and was surprised to see they jokingly called it GotY as well.
>>29384621I think we're gonna be black no matter what.
>>29384621I miss those orange balls. Worst change in the 3DS games by far.
>>29384257"That's right, Captain. The Chief has requested that you help me transport a few key items."Well, that can't be too bad.You find yourself once more in the gothic lobby of UGN HQ. The butlers look at you with upturned noses, placing bag after bag, suitcase after suitcase, into your waiting hands. Just a month before now, this would have been an unbearable burden, but now these bags feel as light as a feather, even though they are piled higher than your head. Heavy or not, this certainly counts as more than 'a few key items'. Out of the corner of your eye, you see Claire and Shining Void talking to each other. Your new knowledge of just what Shining Void does with her free time causes you to be even more anxious in her presence, and you immediately look the other way. Everyone, everyone here is some kind of psychopath. You feel a slight sting as something slaps you on the back of your head. You turn around to see the Chief staring up at you, waving what looks like a fencing foil in your direction. Wow, she really is short. You can tell she's a little older than you are, but she barely comes up to your shoulders like this. And she's wearing heels!"Good afternoon, Wild Card. I'm told you defeated Diablos on your own yesterday."
>>29384770Uh oh. Are you in trouble? You know you weren't really supposed to use your powers unauthorized. However, the Chief puts her hands on her hips and gives you a warm smile."Most impressive! Diablos is an elite agent of False Hearts. Many of our own have fallen to his attacks. I may have to try harder to recruit a splendid Overed like yourself."Please don't. You try to speak up and protest, but she slaps the foil down on your lips. Even if it's not going to leave a bruise, she should know that hurts."Now, now, don't be modest. Not many Illegals earn my praise, after all," She flips some hair off her shoulder before continuing, "Now then, how does the saying go? Right. 'I have some good news and some bad news. Which would you like first?'">Good news>Bad news
>>29384789>Bad newsMight as well.
>>29384789whichever is less important first
>>29384789Bad news.(Ten bucks says we won't find the good news good either.)
>>29384789>Bad news.Oh, and do you monitor just us, or everyone around us. Because there's this girl that keeps trying to contact me, Yeager is into her, and she wasn't at school today. I'm a little paranoid, what with being ripped to shit the day before.
>>29384789>Bad newsI have a bad feeling about all that luggage. If they try to move that chick in the house we become a vagrant.
>>29384981Ask for a new supervisor person. I'd say one that isn't crazy, but since that won't happen, I'd settle for a crazy who isn't Claire.
>>29384789The bad news, of course. If there are any problems, you need to know about them as soon as possible."My, how bold. I would not think you were a civilian with such an attitude. I see Speeding Bullets is not overstating your machismo."She's what?"Moving along, Diablos's attack on you yesterday confirms that there is a new False Hearts cell in this city. Diablos is a hunter, you see. His job within that organization is to find unaffiliated Overeds, preferably before we can, and bring them to their cause by any means possible. Hundreds of Overed all across the globe have been kidnapped and rendered insane by his schemes. That he is here means there is more than the Overed we know about at risk, but you in particular are at increased risk. After such a display of power, you are now a priority target for False Hearts. They will expend considerable resources to see that you are captured and subverted to their cause. We're placing you under high security surveillance."You thought you were already under surveillance, what does this new level of security entail?"Your activities will be under my direct supervision. I will not allow you to fall into enemy hands. Your home shall serve as my new base of operations until this crisis has passed."...So what is the good news?"Why, you have the luxury of entertaining me, of course! You shall be handsomely compensated for my lodging and expenses, as well as the privilege of my company. Ah," she holds a hand to her mouth, "Don't be alarmed. Speeding Bullets shall continue her normal duties. I wouldn't dare take this assignment from her."She smiles drawing circles in the air with her foil."Are you not excited?"No. You're not.((Let me try to get some coffee. This 'five more hours' thing is getting tougher))
I just had the most bizarre realization.They probably stick you with people that would drive you crazy during your monitoring period just to see if you are strong willed enough to resist going crazy Renegade.
>>29385095>Let me try to get some coffeeBut DXRThe coffee doesn't work anymore
>>29385100That makes a surprising amount of sense. Which makes me wonder exactly how much of the treatment by the staff is an act.
>>29385095So long as she's paying rent.
>>29385100I hope that's the case. This would be so much better if it was intentional. Still infuriating, but at least then we'd know these people are sane.
>>29385095Tell her that she's sharing fur growth acceleration duties with Claire.
>>29385095This 'hooray' sounds about right:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBd0uHVJwg0Well, better than moving Claire in with us.While a bit strange, at least the Chief doesn't actively annoy, irritate, grate, or scare us. Yet.
>>29385095Our home is rank with the stink of bitches. This is turning into some sort of sick joke.
>>29385100>>29385142>>29385154Ha, so cute. People trying to deny that every single one of these dames isn't out of their mind.>>29385175I liked the chief at first. But if she keeps up that foil shit, she's going on the list.
Every single character in this quest is fucking insufferable.
>>29385185Japan rule #7: Try to live a quiet normal life, and you'll be neck deep in troublesome women.
>>29385052>>29385095No! Fuck! I didn't mean an additional crazy. I wanted a replacement!
>>29385213But in enjoyable ways. I'd hate to have them be part of my life, but forcing our dear Captain to have to put up with their shit makes for delightful schadenfreude.
>>29385175She was just swinging a foil into our face. That counts as an irritant.
>>29385200No one should have so many problems in their life that they need an actual List.
>>29385185Literally rank. Though hopefully the presence of the Chief will lead to Lunatic High taking better care of her hygiene for the time being.
>>29385200Oh, they are out of their mind, we just get stuck with the 'good guy' crazies as a test.A) We survive and go on without surpervision.B) Be we go crazy/turn, and are put down.C) We cave and join up, presumably because we've gone mad.
>>29385213I try.Anyway, hands up, who wants to keep going? I've got a cup of coffee and several more packets of instant brew if I need to, but otherwise, I'm about ready to turn in.
>>29385313I'll keep on if you keep on.
>>29385313I'm up for it. Though it is getting late over here. A few hours at most, then I need to crash.
>>29385313I keep going.
>>29385267well, the Captain wouldn't actually keep a list, because that implies he was going to do something about the people on the list. It is just a mental space reserved for people whose personalities have proven to be abnormal>>29385313I stand ready.
>>29385313I wanna keep going
>>29385313I'm not going to bed for quite a while.
Well damn, I was hoping you'd opt out. Alright, let me see if I can put together a post. If it looks like shit, I'll call it a night here having hit a new record.
>>29385095Your house is a hell of a lot more rowdy now. You thought it was just going to be the Chief moving in, but a full company of butlers came with her, tending to her every need, rearranging your furniture, giving you disparaging looks and crude comments when your back is turned. They know you can hear them. They must!Your kitchen has been turned into what must pass for mission command in these parts, the Chief sitting at the head of the table, sipping tea out of a teacup that you've been assured is worth more than your entire house and everything in it (yourself included). Around her are several attendant butlers, Lunatic High, and Claire, who is busy brushing Lunatic's tail. You would try to watch TV or something to distract yourself, but that too has been appropriated into your kitchen, with the Chief using it to monitor the security cameras they have set up across your neighborhood.Instead, you've tried to find solace in reading some of your old comic books. You haven't touched these in ages. They're...not as good as you remember. As you finish another issue, one of the butlers taps you on the shoulder and directs your attention to the Chief, who waves at you. You suppose you shouldn't keep her waiting.As you sit down at the table, the Chief offers you a cup of tea. Feeling the impending pressure from her staff, you accept and take a drink. The Chief, meanwhile, picks up one of your comic books and begins to leaf through it."How charming! I consider myself a avid fan of literature, even something as common as this, but I have never seen this book before. Tell me, what is it called?">SerpentSphere>Go! Gigantic General Raylion!>Heart-Beat: Darkness
>>29385620>Go! Gigantic General Raylion!There is nothing in this title that I don't like.
>>29385620>Go! Gigantic General Raylion!
>>29385620>>Heart-Beat: DarknessDragonball and I think Voltron I know, but I can't place this one.
>>29385620Go! Gigantic General Raylion!
>>29385620>Heart-Beat: DarknessSeems most appropriate.
>>29385620I... I'm not sure which choice can be twisted into the most humorous presumption or innuendo...>Heart-Beat: Darkness
>>29385682Appending "darkness" to anything is a reference to To-Love-Ru: Darkness, an already borderline hentai manga becoming even more lewd as it moved to monthly publication.
>>29385723Oh.I have made a terrible mistake.
>>29385723>Voted for it because I thought the one with Darkness in it would result in funniest hahas>Had no idea what it was supposed to be thoughLooks like I was right, but for different reason.
>>29385620>Heart-Beat: DarknessI hope this is what i think it is.
>>29385723Oh god, is that what I voted for having been reading in the house full of overbearing women? They really should have had descriptions.
>We just handed a hentai mag to the Chief.Alpha as fuck...oh god why
>>29385723Three Darkness deletes after this post. Just laughing my ass off over here.
>>29385846Well, it's not like the innuendo was going to ever get lessened. May as well turn this into a war to see who can make who the most uncomfortable.
>>29385797To late now fuckers. You are personally responsible for the hell Captain now finds himself in.
>>29385868but, but the chief was the one that was still possibly tolerable! why would our first strike be against her?!
I wonder if the offer to join the other team is still open.
>>29385906What, you think showing them our yaoi collection will make this any less awkward? You think that won't spur Claire to ever more involved shipping fantasies?
>>29385906I bet they're the types that would give us a signing bonus (metaphorical) after beating their recruiter's ass. Just steer clear of Diablos in case he holds a grudge / psycho-friendly competitive spirit.
>>29385879Hell smhell, if we gave a fuck we wouldn't have even brought it to the table.
>>29385620...You're not sure if she should really be reading this. Heart-Beat: Darkness is a seriously high-level boy's comic book for men."Is that its name? How interesting!"You reach for the comic. There's no way you can let her read that out in front of everybody. Heart-Beat: Darkness is a comic best read alone, in the dark, with nobody around to see. She lashes out with her foil and slaps your hand away, continuing to read."Such lovely character designs. I love this girl, Lulu, yes? She's so pretty! And this little sister character, Cherry? How cute! Whoever this artist is, I simply must commission him for a portrait of myself."You watch on with a pained expression as the Chief flips through the pages. At first she seems delighted, giggling every once and a while and giving a broad smile. However, soon afterwards, her expression shifts to confusion. She begins to flip through the pages much more slowly, reading the book with a careful, deliberate eye. Her face becomes flushed, her hands begin to tremble each time she must turn the page. Eventually, it becomes too much for her, and she shuts the book, holding it up in front of her beet-red face."W-well...I'm afraid this is simply inappropriate for a boy your age. I shall have to take this from you. All of it. From the beginning."The Chief immediately gets up and goes about collecting the rest of your books in a great haste, even swatting away her butlers as they try to help her.
>>29386023Warily, you turn an eye to Lunatic and Claire. A look of sheer amusement crosses Lunatic's face, and she begins to chuckle. "It seems you have always been host to such wild passions, Captain. As expected of you. I am very impressed," Claire says, and she begins to clap."Yes, yes! Three cheers for the wildman!" Lunatic bursts out laughing, slapping the table and gasping for air.This isn't how you wanted your evening to end at all.TO BE CONTINUED((Sorry guys, I am just too tired anymore. I really tried, but I can't pull an archelon.))
>>29386035It's cool, don't worry about it. See you next time.
>>29386035Good night. Sleep tight.
>>29386023>I shall have to take this from you. All of it. From the beginning.>The Chief immediately gets up and goes about collecting the rest of your books in a great haste, even swatting away her butlers as they try to help her.BAHAHAHAHAHAHA>>29386035Alright then. Next thread when?
>>29386053You just know she's going to read them all later in private. I think we may have gotten the Chief hooked on ecchi manga.
>>29386035Thanks for the rise, we'll see you next time.(Poor Captain..)
>>29386023Huh. Looks like Chief is the one playing for the other team.
>>29386064http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29375328/Archived for you.Feel free to discuss. It's really motivating to see people talk about it, so please do.
>>29386023chief continues to be best woman.>>29386035now you fuckers...At least Lunatic has to be fucking with us, but I'm really not sure about Claire.
>>29386085You might wanna pre-archive threads when they start so they don't get hit by a misarchivist.
>>29386104I'll try to remember, but I'll link it here no matter what happens.
>>29386088There's only one easy way to tell if Claire's serious. If we reacted with enthusiasm to her comments and she's just been messing with us the whole time, it'll ruin her fun and she'll stop. Of course, if she's serious we're fucked. In every sense of the word.
So next session tomorrow? Couple days? Next week?
>>29386085How big is Captains house if she brought her house staff with her? Are they going to be sleeping there, because if so I hope she's covering their rent.
>>29386117Considering how strongly she reacted to such little praise before, I'd wager she is acting sincerely. The problem is that her normal is abnormal for us.
>>29386140Keep up with twitter. Night guys
>>29386143>implying Chief didn't take over the surrounding houses, turning the neighborhood into Alpha Base
>>29386117My first instinct is that Claire really just doesn't know any better. She already finished her 8 years, maybe she grew up with UGN, and her only knowledge of boys is from manga, compounded by what she's learned about Chimaera.
>>29386163Claire seems to believe boys are on part with mythical animals or something.
>>29386163>her only knowledge of boys is from manga, compounded by what she's learned about Chimaera.so basically when our file showed up, she saw it and fought everyone for the embodiment of her teenage/naughty dreams
>>29386163We'll just have to show her a true Man's Romance
>>29386219>See file>Pure Chimaera>"Aww yiss fluffy tail husbando pheromones sex god"And then she got Captain: Misanthropic Xenomorph. I almost feel bad for Claire.
>>29386249really, cause it seems to me she's been pretty happy with what she got>helping our fur grow in is only the beginning
>>29386258She's in denial."Oh, Captain, how noble, restraining the wild beast within for so long. Don't worry, I'll be here, when you can no longer bear it."
>>29386219To be honest, I pretty much lost it when she was talking about being "backed up" and wanting to let loose "all over somebody". Then volunteered.Claire is too lewd. Too lewd!
>>29386285I want this to happen.
>>29386291>>29386285>>29386258>>29386219its clear she wants it, the real question is how long before she gets fed up and takes it
>>29386375It's her fantasy to be ravished, not to ravish. She'll just endlessly try to provoke Captain into forcing himself on her.
>>29386398"I'm sorry I failed my mission Captain, please don't sex me back to headquarters. I don't think my body could take it."
>>29386426Claire pretty much writes herself, doesn't she?
