You decide to take your Desert Eagle with you. You still dont' want to bother Yuu's rest, you've had enough of Risa for one day, and Kirika can just go and fuck herself. ...Well, no, you're still curious how using the Muramasa, post-procedure, would actually be like - but you're not just in the mood to fuck around with it now.With the oversized handcannon now back in its rightful place - glinting from a snakeskin shoulder holster strapped around your form, its comfortable weight settling against your side - you immediately feel like things are properly getting back on track, now. With the Golden Desert Eagle within your reach in case you need to shoot anything in the kneecaps, and the journal Wendy gave you at hand to help you note down the really important things - it's starting to feel that you may just be able to get a good handle on this Warmastering thing. As well as, you know, the entire deicide-suicide mission that your past selves dropped on your lap.Now if you could only do something about hurting all over.
>>29650485Argh. Fucking bullshit. Jesus Christ. Next time you have the bright idea to challenge Sayaka to a goddamn sparring match, you're going to shoot yourself in the kneecap for the disqualification.It's not worth it. Nothing is worth limping every time you take a step in your fucking heels, or feeling like each of your ribs are sticking into your lungs every time you take a breath.Despite all this, you manage to stalk your way to your office without too much hassle. And just like Mami said, your lunch is on your desk - along with what looks to be a pile of important-looking paperwork. ...This is what it's come to, is it? You sigh as you slink behind your desk, letting yourself fall into your high-backed mafia boss chair, at the same time tearing off your Warmaster Cap and letting it fall onto your desk. Vindicare Murderface is dead, long live Watch-Wearing Dildo Warmaster Chiaki Matsuda? Should you actually go out one of these nights and buy a fucking watch?You look down on the pile of paperwork before shaking your head. Kharn never had to fucking go through one piece of paperwork in her career. It's not fair.Then again, she did have Malal, so...You let out another sigh - most certainly not your last - before picking the pile up and shuffling through them.Hnh. Well, this doesn't seem to be that bad. You have two transferring orders that require your authorization, three retirement benefit packages for you to sign off on, three new contract notifications, Mami's Interrogation Report, and...what looks like a very ornate envelope, made out from very expensive paper. And it's even got a wax seal, of all things, the symbol II pressed into the solidified adhesive....So it's from the Second, then? Strange.What do you do now?Look at the message from the Second, see what it's all about. The rest can wait.Might as well get the boring stuff out of the way first.Leave this shit for Mami to handle and eat lunch. You deserve it.

Unless Blueberry was handling that in private. We can talk to Midorin after that, since she and Kumatora are getting office duty.Also, I'm toying with the idea of asking her to take Eversor training with Kyoko, and to keep an eye on Blueberry for "pretending to be her" purposes.I'm thinking it might be handy if Midori could "play Equerry", letting Sayaka actually be somewhere else.
Guys, this is probably the only time we're actually going to get a chance to look over what the actual officio DOES. As soon as we open the letter from the second up, we're going to be caught up in massive wacky hijinks again. At the best case scenario we can do this exactly once, and make a big stamp with the word [DELEGATE] on it, and stamp anything that's dildos with it, and let all our section heads deal with it.

>>29650845To be fair, there isn't actually any boring stuff mentioned.Retirement benefit for MGs is heart warming. New Contractees is depressing, but still interesting. Even transfer orders are curious.Mami probably wouldn't have left that stuff for us specifically unless she thought it would be useful for us to see.
>>29650882>Mami probably wouldn't have left that stuff for us specifically unless she thought it would be useful for us to see.I agree with this guy. Mami probably already took care of the really boring stuff behind the scenes, leaving behind only the truly useful stuff. Anyways, voting period was done a while back, so Decu's probably working on the new post now.
>>29650851We are cursed, Hat-chan. CURSED!
>>29650851Paper pushing quest is a go! It won't be long before Decu has /tg/ doing his tax returns.
There's also Mami's interrogation report in the stack of boring paperwork. Didn't we really want to get those information ealier?Wonder why it's not a priority now.

>>29650598 >>29650544 >>29650560 >>29650577Urk. You can feel the gold-plated, diamond-encrusted watch wrapping around your wrist already, the leather strap a luxurious manacle chaining you to your desk. Girl A. Murderface. Chiaki Matsuda, doing paperwork. It's a nightmare you never thought you'd be living, but here you are, and there's no waking up from it....Christ. No need to be so fucking dramatic. It's...it's just paperwork. Just pieces of paper you need to deal with. After you've cleared your table of them, you'll be free for non-paperwork stuff. Yeah. Maybe go and bother Kyoko, or something. Or maybe even call Midori and have her give you a backrub. That'd be nice.You set aside the message from the Second to focus on the Ninth-related stuff first. Your girls come first, after all, not some bunch of posh-speaking...tea...guzzlers. Yeah, okay, you don't know much about the Second, but you're not going to put them over your own Officio. Anyway. You pore over the the first batch of documents, that being the two transfer orders. Two Vindicares - Iwakura Honoka and Hino Setsuna - are asking to be transferred to another Officio. The former, a four-year veteran, wishes to temporarily transfer to the Fourth, to study with their Mechanicum division for an entire year. Hino Setsuna, on the other hand, wishes to transfer to the Seventh, citing 'irreconcilable differences with her squad mates'.You briefly check the Magical Girl Primer about transfers, flipping through the long-winded book to see what kind of procedure is followed. You quickly find the passage you're looking for: 'While transfers may be approved or denied by the presiding Warmaster without an interview, it is usually recommended that an interview actually be conducted, most especially in the case of permanent inter-Officio transfers.'Hmh. So you can just approve or deny a transfer without an interview, then? That's handy to know.What do you do?
>>29650969Approve #1, Call #2 for an interview.
>>29650969Rubber-stamp this shit. REQUESTS GRANTED, GTFO.
>>29650969Approve #1, interview #2
>>29650969Approve Honoka but arrange an interview for Setsuna later.
>>29650969approve Iwakura Honoka and call Hino Setsuna to an interview
>>29650969[X] Approve the temp transfer and pencil in the permanent one for interview. While what we know about the Seventh makes it seem like a no-brainer, "irreconcilable differences" is something that should be looked into. Preferably by Mami.
>>29650969[x] Let Iwakura go to the fourth, extra knowledge once she returns will be useful. Schedule an interview with Hino before deciding her case.
>>29650969Honoka seems fair enough.Setsuna I kind of want to know what her deal is. Transferring to another Officio because of squad mates seems kind of... pitiful.Still, I'm tempted to pull both of them up here, just because I want to get a feel for why Mami left both of these for us.
>>29650969[x] Approve the first, interview the second.
>>29650969Call in the second one. Might want to also call in the squadmates either after before or during her interview with us.
>>29650969Get Mami on Honoka, no need to bother too much about that. Get Hino an interview slot at some point when we've got a few minutes free.
>>29650969Also, I would like to propose canceling everything in favor Midori-backrubs. Because Chiaki deserves it.
>>29650969Interview them bothIt might seem stupid but seeing our girl off who is going to study will be good for her morale and our image as warmaster NotKharn and the second we can see about her reasons and if she wouldn't want to transfer to another unit or sections and her real reason for actually wanting to transfer out of our officio since that seems rather control Ed for such a big move
>>29650969Approve #1, make a note to speak with her later though and maybe with the 4th Warmaster as well.Interview #2
>>29651028>Get Mami on HonokaCalling in Mami-san is for BIG problems, not MG squabbles.Hell, SHE left those to us.
>>29651047Contrived not control EdAutocorrect etcetc
>>29650969Gonna go with interviewing them both. #1 should be talked to just as a formality, while #2 is... probably something that should be looked into.
>>29650969>>29650987>>29651038[x]Approve 1#[x]Call in 2# for Interview.[x]Call in Midori to our office for backrub before/while/after interviewing 2#
>>29650969[x] Interview both brieflyI'm torn. We want to conduct the interviews because really they should only take a few minutes each in game, but it'd take 3 threads and hours of decutime in real life.Oh, well.
I-I can't concentrate, lunch is being too distracting...
>>29651047Well keep it short in that case.
>>29651121>whileI thought that we were trying to not look like Kharn
>>29650969We should approve Honoka and arrange an interview for Setsuna. But at same time we should try to meet with Honoka just so we can meet learn more about that sort of stuff.It would be good to learn more about the megucas that are working for us and also gives us a chance to get more background info on how the officios work. Though we can always just schedule this for later instead of immediate, just so we don't waste that much time.Also for Setsuna, we should probably also arrange meetings with her squadmates beforehand just so we can have the other side of the story and have a bigger picture of what the problem is.
>>29651142Oh yeah first is literally a matter of interview being "hi I approved your request, I hope you have an enjoyable and profitable time with the fourth" and the second a bit more in depth
>>29651150We are getting a backrub, not letting her eat us out under the table.
>>29651047>seeing our girl off who is going to study will be good for her morale and our image as warmasterThis is a good point, we should have a short talk with her if just as a formality. I still think we should contact the 4th Warmaster about it later though. Just to talk about what she would have our girl going.
>>29650969would it be wise to do the interview while wearing the hat?I suppose the interview would be good practice for Chiaki on talking to people.
>>29651121As fun as that would be I can't help but feel how this might reflect on us.
>>29650969I like what>>29651047is suggesting, but keep them short.
>So, why do you want to switch officios?>My squadmates kind of freak me out when they start chanting "FOR OUR BLESSED LADY" and shit, and start practicing human sacrifices. It was all right until they started eating the bodies. Can I go now?
Honestly, I'm inclined to just scare Setsuna a bit so that dealing with her squadmates seems like less effort than trying to deal with us.If she can't get a backbone here, moving to another Officio is unlikely to help.Honoka seems like a formality, which makes me wonder if there's something more to it than meets the eye. Or if Mami is just using her as a test of sorts for us.Either way, a brief interview shouldn't take too long
>>29650969>>29651047>>29651212[x] Those. Seems reasonable. Lets do this.
Voting period was over a short while ago. Can't do banners because my phone hates transparency, but I thought you guys should know.
>>29651181still doing that during an interview might leave the wrong impression
>>29651240Lemme do it for you.
>>29651253was about to post Mami, but good enough
>>29651253stop procrastinating, Chiaki, and get back to watch-wearing paperwork.
Maybe we should designate a temporary named anon to do the time posts, if none of the regular guys are around. So we don't end up with a spam of every banner after the next post.
>>29651224>If she can't get a backbone here, moving to another Officio is unlikely to help.>her squadmates have surgically removed her spine as a prank
>>29651286not gonna happen, I'm leaving it to the anon who posted the last one.
>>29651297Let's hear her story first, sympathetically, *then* chew her out.
After we're done playing Office Lady Simulator 2014, we should go forward to Kyuubey with a proposal to expand the Office of the Warmaster beyond a handful of part-time employees. We have cultists to stomp and golden weapons to acquire, we can't let Officio business prevent us from completing our actual quest.First, Chiaki and Sayaka should each have full-time secretaries to schedule appointments and sort paperwork. Mami is lovely, but I think we'd be better served by girls whose schedules allow them to actually remain in the office during office hours.We should also obtain additional aides or underlings that we can delegate the mundane tasks and meetings of the job. Kharn got by with just Malal, but expecting Sayaka to shoulder Malal's workload on top of being Eversor Rank Leader is...unrealistic. Additional aides empowered to act on our behalf for the boring shit leaves us with handling only the ceremonial duties of the office (like presiding over trials), and the decisions that actually require the real Warmaster's approval. In practical terms, this would ideally mean more of our future Quest time will be dedicated to...questing.
>>29651286>>29651304I guess I could keep doing it.
>>29651336>chew her out>she has a landmine lodged in her mouth that she can't take out without blowing off her head
>>29651348well, unless Neco or Wendy turn up.Or Hat gets a real phone and not some babby toy.
>>29651224Actually this is kind of exactly what the 7th was for. They are designed to take in odd-ball magical girls or give refuge to runaways.But we should still determine if this is something we can fix, by say, shooting off a few kneecaps. Or if she really would be better off there, both for the sake of our officio and hers.
>>29651384It's an S4! It was really expensive! I just can't figure out why it gives transparent images a black background...
>>29651414What Browser is it?
>>29651342We don't actually need to go to QB for that, we have that kind of power as Warmaster to promote or demote anyone. We could technically designate ALL of this paperwork to someone else.We do need to report to him from time to time on our activity's though. So we just fill him in on our decision at that time.
>>29651414Kumatora fiddling with an expensive phone she blew all her paycheck on and can't figure out how to use properly...
>>29651342>we can't let Officio business prevent us from completing our actual quest.We won't. The first time the job gets in the way of The Job, (or questing threatens to put the Ninth in a bad light) Chiaki is outta here.In the meantime, we'll hold down the fort.
>>29651224I think it may be better to give her a chance solely because this may be a good chance to improve our reputation. Even though this is thinking too gamewise, think of it more as a reputation slider event instead of simple fluff text event. If we are willing to hear her out and give her a chance then it will make us look better and more diplomatic in the eyes of the people under us, alongside of it also giving a good impression to the Seventh if she transfers.Same with Honoka, if we actually do the formality then it make us look more involved as a warmaster and shit as though we actually give a shit about the job instead of being indifferent, which may be good for morale.That's only to say that this is actually one of those events and isn't just background fluff.
>>29651426I use Dolphin for general browsing and Chrome for following MGNQ because Dolphin gets really weird when a thread is set to refresh automatically
>>29651342It's worth doing this at least once to see what's involved, even if we're only here to say "well that was a waste of time, we can give this to someone else to deal with". At the moment we haven't got a good grasp of officio politics and shit. Going through at least once might actually tell us some things, like "holy shit what's this cult thing and why are so many people involved in it" or "why has there been 20 girls killed on 20 assault missions with this crew and how come no-one's bringing it up"
This whole, dealing with problemed girls in our officio thing reminds me of a quote from Kharn, off all people. About how we should handle this.>"I do not expect everyone to get along but I do expect some degree for professionalism from those in the employ of this officio"It's partially how I modeled my view of Chiaki as a Warmaster. Kharn may have loved killing and fucking, but she took the work seriously... for the most part... and she had Malal. But she did care for the girls she was in charge of. I figured Chiaki would model herself after that aspect of Kharn when it came to being Warmaster.
>>29651594I'm not complaining (too much) about us doing this now, but I don't really want Choose-your-paperwork decision prompts to be a regular occurrence in future threads.I guess if it gets to be too much, we can always blow the Officio (probably literally, we've got to have enough explosives tucked away in our shield), hook up with Wendy, and finish the quest Thelma-and-Louise-style.
>>29651677I bet Risa would be behind that idea 150%I wonder how many points that would be worth.
>>29651677I doubt Decu would go into detail of it after the first time round, decu does have the ability to gloss over things that aren't really important, if we were to keep doing the paperwork.Still, I'd rather delegate even more of it.
>>29651756Less than if we managed to kill Mami individually. A group betrayal like that is much less point scoring than kicking over someone you know personally.I wonder how many points Kharn got for Malal?
>>29651773The thing is that we need to figure out who we can trust most of all to designate this kind of thing too. That official looking note from the second seems like a Warmaster only kind of thing. Unless they always wax-seal their mail because they are just pompous dildos like that.Maybe we should get Kumatora to sit in on this? She seems to be the only one I trust right now to have enough free time for this kind of stuff, or Yuma.
>>29651591Testing chrome on an s3.Will delete afterwards
>>29650987 >>29651047You decide to approve Iwakura Honoka's request. Rifling through your desk drawers, you find the Ninth Officio Warmaster's official rubber stamp seal, along with an crimson inkpad that smells quite strongly of turpentine. Glancing over Honoka's request, you press the rubber stamp into the inkpad for a few seconds, before lifting it off and carefully pressing it onto the form itself. The stamp leaving behind the Officio's symbol - IX - along with what looks like a superdeformed depiction of Kharn's smiling face....You should probably look into getting your own stamp made, huh?You decide to hold off on approving Hino Setsuna's transfer, however. As reasonable at it seems - irreconcilable differences with your team mates may be a trivial thing in a regular jackoff's life, but when you depend on the Magical Girl beside you for your own survival, well...you just want to make sure that you know where she's coming from, first. That means an interview.You open up the laptop that you contacted Mami with, earlier. Yes, you know she said she'll be out, but hopefully she left someone else to help you in this kind of thing. You could call her, but you'd rather not interrupt her day for something so trivial.Who greets you, then, is a pink-haired girl with glasses and what very much looks like office lady attire. Goutokuji Fuu, her nameplate reads. She blinks at you a couple of times, as if wondering just who you are - before completely going red as she recognizes you."O-oh! Miss Matsuda! I...I apologize, I wasn't prepared, I, uh, I'm--" The girl is visibly panicking here, clearly not expecting you. "G-good afternoon! W-what can I do for you today, Miss Matsuda?!"...Right. Yeah. You return the greeting after a few false, awkward starts, before asking her if she could help you call in two Magical Girls to your office. Transfer interview."Oh, of course, Miss Matsuda! T-that won't be a problem!"[1/2]
>>29651653>tfw we have no Tomboy-Meduca of our own
>>29651820>I wonder how many points Kharn got for Malal?I think this question has been asked about 5 times now since we learned about the point system. I too, really want to know how many points Kharn got for Malal.
>>29651856Right. You give her their names, and tell her to have them come up as soon as they're able."As good as done! T-thank you, Miss Matsuda!"You manage to keep your face straight for a moment more as you thank her, before closing the laptop gently.It's...every single day? You have to do this every single day?Nnnh. Sooner you can have Midori set up here as your secretary, the better.While you wait for the two, you look at the three contract notifications. You don't need to take any action on them, you remember - they're just for the Warmaster's benefit, to know who was contracted recently.>Shinohara Tsukasa, Age 15, Eversor>Hanazono Sasami, Age 16, Vindicare>Kanzaki Ichigo, 15, Venenum...Well. A bit young, and that's always a shame, but...You feel relieved, in a cold, detached way, that you didn't see Iori's name on the list.You stamp them anyway, just to show that you've looked them through.As you're about to look through the last set of paperwork, it's here that you hear a knock on the door leading to your office."Warmaster?" A polite, but firm voice comes from behind the heavy oaken door. "This is Iwakura Honoka and Hino Setsuna. You asked to see us?"You blink at this. That was quick. You tell Honoka to come in, first. Setsuna can wait for a bit outside.A bit of a muffled conversation, and the door slowly creaks open to admit a young crimson-haired girl through. She's wearing the typical Vindicare battle gear that you've seen Squad Hiryu wear - and from the looks of her pockmarked armor, you've just called her out of a particularly heated training op. She doesn't seem to mind, though, her blue eyes wide and bright, lighting up her face along with her somewhat nervous grin."Good afternoon, Warmaster. Iwakura Honoka, Vindicare of Squad Kiryu." She bows once as she approaches your desk, and bows again as she stops in front of it. "I...I suppose this is about my transfer request?"How do you begin this interview?
>>29651920Ask her very calmly to make her case and explain any circumstances or context we'd need to make the decision.
>>29651920>>29651954This is the one that wants to transfer to the Fourth. Let her know that we approved her request and that she should employ her time at the Fourth to the fullest. We look forward to positive results.
>>29651920Start with Honoka, ask her a few questions, tell her that her request has been approved, wish her well, then push her out the door. Then we can start on the other one.
>>29651920Let her know that her transfer is approved, but we'd like to her her reasoning and intent personally.Calmly, matter-of-fact.
>>29651920Ask her what she plans to learn from the 4th and how it will be applied to her work here.
>>29651920"Partly that, mostly getting to know the people I'm suddenly responsible for."ask her what she plans to do/learn there, just a heads up when we plan to approve anybody else going there.
>>29651920Lets just keep it up with our Cool Onee-San Persona and do a Vetinari because whenever we try somethign else we lose our spaghetti. [x]Shuffle around papers for a bit for no reason.[x]Hairflick[x]Just stare at her wordlessly over the rims of your glasses.
>>29651992nah, that doesn't work unless you ARE Vetinari. Scaring people all the time isn't productive unless you know what to scare them into doing.

>>29651992"Yes. Apparently an interview is standard practice before making a decision.I trust you'll bring represent the Officio well, and that when you come back, you'll bring back some of whatever you think they've got that we don't."
>>29651920[x] Let her know we're approving her transfer, ask about what she's going to be studying.
>>29652016Who ever said anything about scaring her? We just want to use our ColdBeauty-Points to the fullest. Most people who heard of us probably associate us with Kharn-levels of crazy thanks to Murderface and all, so lets just play it cool.
mulligan to six cards?
[x] Ask her what exactly she is interested in learning during her time at the Fourth. Then tell her you have approved her request and wish her luck and say something about looking forward to her return or somesuch.
>>29651920[x] inform her the request is granted and ask what she will be learning, how it will be sueful later on etc. Wish her a successfull year before she leaves.
>>29652047staring at people wordlessly is only going to scare or seduce them. neither is what we really want to do until we know what we're doing.besides, Girl A did a lot of staring, contemplating whether or not to shoot.
>>29652044Except we've already made the decision. All we have to do now is just inform her that it's been approved and maybe make a few notes to stick in her file. No point in drawing this one out when we're keeping the other girl waiting in the hallway.>>29652048Duh, you didn't draw any land.
>>29652084If we put the hat on it would default to seduce mode. Should we do that?
mulligan to 5 cards?
>>29652093>Except we've already made the decision.We know that, she doesn't.
>>29652084>staring at people wordlessly is only going to scare or seduce them.What kind of messed up logic is that?
>>29651920[x] What are these "irreconcilable differences with your squad mates?"
>>29651920I got this.
>>29652119I thought we WEREN'T trying to be Kharneven though I'm the first one to suggest wearing the hat in the interviews.>>29652140staring at them in the creepy murderface way, or staring at the in the seductive cool girl way. The hat is also a deciding factor.>>29652133you give up, because I can count 4 colors in that hand, and if you haven't drawn a good hand yet, then your deck probably sucks.
>>29652151For the umpteenth time, wrong girl
>>29652140Noir logic.Noir is defined by sexual motivations and cynicism. So if you put two noir characters in a room together they are either going to start yelling at each other or have sex.
Rolled 8>>29652151>>29652151wrong girl
>>29651979This is good.
>>29652151Wrong girl, its_over,jpg-chan!
you conceded, game over
>>29652151I think it is entirely within the realm of a Murderface level fuckup to send these girls to the wrong officios.
>>29651653>"I do not expect everyone to get along but I do expect some degree for professionalism from those in the employ of this officio"Inspiration strikes:"The new Warmaster is sooo cool!""She is! How does she do it!"A sound of heels tapping against the floor interrupts the girls' chatter. They turn around to be met with a faceful of smoke, coming from the lips of their subject of interest.Chiaki Matsuda stares. She still doesn't know what to do with these... Situations. And she still doesn't like how the girls can completely ignore the smoke entering their lungs. Fucking eversors. Still, she's trying to do a good job, and may as well show it.She's taking Kharn's words to hearth, she tells them."Kharn's!" Yelps one of the girls."T-The previous... Warmaster?" The other girls says with a suddenly very small voice.Chiaki frowns. That's not what she was expecting, but then again, what's new? Changing tracks, she adjusts her Warmaster hat and looks at the girls' eyes with as firm a look as she can manage.She speaks with surety: She'll take care of her girls, they can be sure of it.The girls' eyes widen, and they all stay still for a second. Chiaki congratulates herself for not screwing up, and brushes past the girls who were blocking the hallway. As she turns a corner, she attemps to look back and smile, inadvertently letting her ponytail flip around.The loud sounds of two bodies hitting the floor was not expected.
>>29652160for the record, the trick to posting transparent images from the phone seems to be getting the images onto the phone unmolested by Samsung's Gallery app.I used Dropbox to put them straight onto the SD card, and then used ES File Explorer to bring them into Chrome
We should just tell her outright we've approved the request, and that we want to know details of what she's planning to study specifically.Also, has anyone thought about the potential ramifications of Iori seeing that photo that NECO took yet?
>>29651138Partially because I liked the art in this post, and partially because I want to try posting a transparent image again
>>29652269>Also, has anyone thought about the potential ramifications of Iori seeing that photo that NECO took yet?Dude, we've considered >implications of everything, including stuff that will almost certainly never happen
>>29652279Oh, hey, it works in Chrome! I'll be sure to download the banners to my phone over the next few days!
>>29652170>Noir is defined by sexual motivations and cynicism. So if you put two noir characters in a room together they are either going to start yelling at each other or have sex.
>>29652136I have advocated in past threads against tipping our hands in conversations, but I'm not sure what we're gaining by withholding here. As far as I'm concerned, we should have made someone tuck a photocopy of the approved transfer request in her locker and called it a day. Meanwhile, the interview we actually need to conduct is waiting outside.
>>29652293So should I just keep posting the banners for now?
>>29652317If you could until NECO shows up, it would be really appreciated! Thank you very much!
>>29652315>I'm not sure what we're gaining by withholding here.practice.We are REALLY goddamn bad at not tipping our hand in conversations.(see: Neco interview)
>>29652345While I agree with you (people being super happy to blab about everything to everyone is one of my pet peeves with this quest), I don't really see any point to withholding information here. At most, switching the order of things: asking her first and then informing her. But there really isn't anything to be gained from not letting her know.
>>29652345Besides, I want to be sure this really is as straightforward as it seems, and we can't do this without leading the conversation a little.Assuming it's as simple as it seems, we didn't even need to call her into the office, and Mami will probably just approve this kind of thing in the future straight off for us. Got no beef with the fourth, we aren't planning anything that would make sending a girl there dangeous, so... yeah.
>>29652315For all we know, this girl is batshit insane. So the interview is a little bit important if to just avoid the possibility of her pitching the idea of a lazer that will blow up the moon. And then the girls at the 4th love the idea so much they follow through with it. Resulting in the 1st sending someone to take care of it and then smack our shit around for not being diligent in our work.Am I being paranoid enough for this quest?
>>29652502>implying we wouldn't back the creation a giant moon-laserfund it.
>>29652502>moon laserThis is actually one of the more saner ideas given we've got a grief seed the size of a moon floating around.
>>29652524>>29652536......yeah, actually. I'd fund it too.
>>29652568>>29652536>>29652524The question is...Would Kyuubey?
>>29652524>>29652536>>29652568>Implying we havent one of those already stashed in our Shield without knowing it
>>29652685Only if he thought he'd get away with it.
>>29652685he funded a containment facility for Walpurgisnacht. Surely he'd fund the construction of something to kill it?
>>29652685>>29652703>Implying Kyuubey doesn't already have three of them
>>29652703He has an extinction event level with locked up in his basementThis would be small time after getting that one past his brothers
>>29652695Strictly speaking, it should be called an anti-moon laser.
>>29652685He already has Walpurgis Night hidden in a silo in Siberia, who knows what other things the other Incubators wouldn't approve of up his sleeve.
>>29651979 >>29651981 >>29651985 >>29651991 >>29652019You nod. You tell her that you've approved her request, so she doesn't need to be worried about that. Honoka blinks for a few moments, before letting out what sounds like genuinely-relieved laughter. "R-really? I'm...my transfer's approved?" She doesn't need to take your word for it, you tell her as you hand over her stamped request form. There's the proof, right there, with the Warmaster's Approval stamp and everything."I..." The Vindicare's eyes go wide as she takes the form from you. "I can't believe it. A-and here I was worrying all month that it'd be denied!" Honoka tears her gaze away from the piece of paper in her hands as she looks up at you. "T-thank you, Warmaster! You don't know how much this means to me!"It's...it's really nothing. You didn't see the point of denying the request. It's for her own growth, anyway, and whatever she learns from the Fourth, she'll be able to pass along to the other Vindicares of the Ninth. "Yes, yes of course!" Honoka couldn't have nodded fast enough. "Um, is...is this why you sent for me, Warmaster?"...Pretty much, yes. You just wanted to tell her personally, as well as ask her about her choice of the Fourth. Why the Fourth, specifically? And is there some other reason besides wanting to study?"It's...it's always been an ambition of mine, Warmaster." Honoka clutches the request form to her chest. "I promised myself that it'd be the first thing I ask for after basic training, but things got too busy, and...well..." Her smile becomes slightly strained, here. "I, I wanted to go while I still could."Ah. Well. You feel you made the right decision, here. You tell her to make full use of her year with the Fourth.[1/2]
>>29652734>implying the QB's don't know about Walpurgisnacht in the Basement.At the very least, the 1st surely knows.The real question is what other oozey little secrets do the other QBs got goin on?
>>29652734I actually think they wouldn't care about a laser that big compared to the witchWith his families level of assholery and insanity I think they would all have anti/moon lasers
>>29652761>"still could"Homudar detection systems online. Blip detected
>>29652811might be the short MG short lifespan.
>>29652761You stand up from your seat and offer her a handshake. She readily accepts, pumping your hand up and down energetically. ...Honoka's a good head taller than you, and definitely not as noodly. You very nearly wince at her holding your fingers tight enough for them to creak, and you're positive she shook your arm out of joint a couple of times, but you manage to keep a poker face throughout.She leaves after thanking you profusely, and it's here that you call Hino Setsuna into your office.In contrast to Honoka, Setsuna looks...well, haunted. Tired. One eye is sealed shut from scarring, her lower lip bisected by a cut that didn't seem to have the chance to heal properly. She is wearing a shrine maiden's outfit, white and red, properly crisp and pressed. Her long black hair tied into one tight braid. "Warmaster." Her voice, soft and cultured, is completely at odds with her appearance, making you blink a couple of times in surprise. The way she bows is formal, too, overly so. She probably would've kneeled if you let her.You wave her forward to your desk, and she bows as she comes to a stop in front of it. Her one good eye, scarlet in color, bores into yours for a few long moments, and it's here that she bows again."I apologize for making such an audacious request, Warmaster. I would have liked nothing more than to die for the Ninth. But I must transfer to the Seventh, for personal reasons. I hope you will consider it."...Ah. She's one of those types.How do you begin this interview?
>>29652905Ask her to explain what her irreconcilable differences with hew squad are.
>>29652905"The answer is going to be no unless you tell me everything that happened."
Honoka's gonna die isnt she :(
>>29652905"The seventh is for Magical Girls who have nowhere else left to go. I'm not going to bug him with a Transfer Request just because a petty squabble."
>>29652905Whether I consider it or not depends on your answers. State your case.
>>29652779I seem to recall that the 10th incubator implied that all the incubators had figured out what QB had locked up in Siberia.Though the others probably don't know the full reason for it (linking soulgems to WN to leech off golden weapon corruption from MGs).
>>29652905[x]Warmaster's office. No bugs, no-one to overhear, just you and me. Now, speak honestly. What's got you in a hurry to leave? [x]Ominous smile for effect.
>>29652977We're going to kill EVERYBODY anon. Try not to let it bother you too much.
>>29652905wait what? we didn't ask what she'd DO in the fourth? why did we even have the interview in the first place?>let her introduce herself, and her entire team in her opinion. No "objective" passive-aggresion, just what she honestly feels about each of them even when she isn't interacting with them.>after that, we can actually talk about what's so wrong that she needs to leave.I'd put my paranoia cap on and watch for FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS, but I'm turning in for the night.
>>29652986Seconding Hat-chan here.
>>29652905"Explain."We need details before we can approve/deny the request. So far we still don't know what's actually going on that's so bad that she needs to leave.
>>29652905[X]"Tell me about these 'irreconcilable differences', It's just you and me here and I need to know."why was transferring to a different squad not possible?
>>29652905"Tell me about the situation with your squad, in as much detail as you can."We might have to dole out some punishment here to the squad members. So it's good to have as much of her side of the story as possible.
>>29652905"Talk to me, Setsuna. If there are problems between the people under me, I need to know. You're all my responsibility now, and that it's bad enough for someone to want to leave, well, that concerns me. So tell me why, please."
So, considering what we learned in the previous threads, I think its about time we started searching for Golden Weapons seriously.As soon as we are done with the paperwork I suggest we go and ask coobs to use every single resource the 9th has to locate the15(?) GW that are unaccounted.
>>29653023>we didn't ask what she'd DO in the fourth? why did we even have the interview in the first place?It was in the initial request, anon: "]Iwakura Honoka], a four-year veteran, wishes to temporarily transfer to the Fourth, to study with their Mechanicum division for an entire year."Whatever their Mechanicum do, the name alone is enough to tell us that probably beyond our understanding, exactly.
>>29652905[X] please relax, I have called you in here to address your concerns and find if what is truly needed is a transfer or if I can help you stay here if you would.I understand how much trust is needed between squad members and any issues at all can be fatal in our businessSo Setsuna, if you could please explain to me the situation In your own words as frankly as you are able and why you wish to transfer I shall do my best to resolve this as quickly as possible
>>29652502>>29652524>>29652536We already have a plan how to defeat Pinky and we dont need a laser for that.
>>29653102I agree, its about time we started glansing towards what the Endgame could be.>that feel when the 1st will have 10 GW spread on various girlsDecu pls dont do that
>>29653159>implying the Grief Seed belongs to Pinky and isn't some kind of Kaiju Egg.
>>29652905[x]"Please tell me its not for something as silly as Revenge."
[x] Ask her to explain the "irreconcilable differences". If necessary, point out that if her squad is causing trouble for her, you need to know for the sake of not just her, but others who might have trouble aswell.Also offer to transfer her to another squad. If she insists on the transfer, ask if the irreconcilable differences was just an excuse and if she has just grown tired of combat or somesuch. Offer a non-combat position in that case.If there is no way to resolve her problem, then approve of the transfer. Ultimately a depressed, bitter and angry MG forced to stay against her will would just end up causing trouble and possibly get others killed.
>>29653113but it is in homuhomu's interest to learn about shiny new guns she could be potentially using.
>>29653173Well, we already know that someone out there has at least five of them. I think we learned that from Pinky during the Kilgore fight. So at most there are only twelve other GW-holders besides us.
>>29653252No, that's why we need to talk to Misaka more often
>>29652905You think she got set on fire at some point?>ionburn closeCaptcha seems to think so.
>>29653283can Misaka make something like the blueberry cheesecake? if so, I totally agree.
>>29653283We should give her a visit before we go back to our apartment.
>>29652905"Now 'irreconcilable differences' is in my experience a pretty good reason for a lot of things, it is also however rather vague."
>>29653315>we run into Amber as she is going into one of the officio labs>"I don't recognize you. Who are you, how did you get in, and what are you here for.">"I'm here to fix Sayakas sword.">"Really... what do you know about guns?"
>>29653352>meI just remembered, Chiaki probably doesn't recognize ANYONE in this officio. Spare her small circle of friends and Sayaka.
>>29653320is she even in town at the moment? At least we should give her a call.
>"So what irreconcilable differences do you have?">"The accounts just won't add up, ma'am. IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES."
>>29653378Isn't she with her brother and Kharn in Siberia?
>>29653398No, she came back. She has work here.
>>29653352Has Chiaki ever met Amber? Does Chiaki even know the names of ten other people in this Officio besides Sayaka, Kyouko, and Mami?
>>29653378I'm pretty sure she came back with us from Russia. She is probably in here shop tinkering with all kinds of horrible murder machines.
>>29653352>>29653374nah, Sayaka will probably be with her, so we can find out that way.>"I don't really know much about guns.">"Oh, alright then, are you good with kids?">"W-What? I guess so-">Call Misaka on phone "I've got a friend I want you to meet. She makes nice toys."
>>29653384Fine. Summon your squad to the training room.You're all going to beat up on each other until I am satisfied,
>>29653413No and Nope.
>>29653254Odds are the person that has five golden items is The Transcended One the reflections spoke off. They claimed that the TNO is collecting golden weapons, and TNO has the advantage of memories from previous timelines that would tell her where to find GWs. She apparently got closer to getting all of them with every loop, which is why the reflections decided to stop looping and make this the final timeline.
>>29653435To be fair, Chiaki DOES tend to make a habit out of nicknaming people.It's actually kind of a wonder that Kumatora's real name stuck.
>>29653431>My lady, we're the accounting squad! We're not really a combat tea->Don't care get up here or you're going to be the only one getting beat up
>>29653423Either Sayaka will be with her or she will have the sword. Chiaki might not know faces, but she has a keen interest in that sword.
>>29653452No, I think they were referring that each (mortal) incarnation of Homura was getting closer to collectiong all 20 weapons>>29653462Who?
People in the Ninth that Chiaki can recognize aside from the PMMM cast and Midori:1) Kumatora 2) Maybe Ayumu from Squad Hiryuu
>>29653489You forgot the rank leaders
>>29653489We've also met with the other rank leaders. Plus these two girls and the substitute secretary that we just met. We might hit 10, but we're definitely not to 15 yet.
>>29653486>Who?..You know, that Rookie Chiaki "trained".I hereby nickname her "The Pantyfinder General"
>>29653486The vindicare that Murderface trained. Currently she has helped us catalog Kharns panty collection and stumble through a date with Midori. She will probably be one of the people we designate paperwork to in the future.
>>29653486Not sure I agree. They explicitly say: "The Transcended One has been attempting to gather all of the golden swords, but for some reason or another, she hasn't quite succeeded. She gets closer with every timeline, though - as such, we've decided to make this our final stand"We know the TNO is the slutty homucifer that appeared to Malal the way Pinky appears to us, and she also appeared to us in the mirrors. Not sure she can be said to be a mortal incarnation given that. She has become something else.
>>29653533>>29653535She's also helping Midori draw Miracle Midori and is supposedly based on Hat-chan personalitywise
>>29653511>>29653533>>29653535Ok, don't make me explain the joke being a running gag.
>>29653533I really have no idea how Kyoko managed to convince Mami that letting Murderface try and train a rookie was a good idea.
>>29653567It's not a funny joke so I ignored it
>>29653567I had written up my post before I saw the second "who?"I wouldn't be surprised if a few people overlooked her.
>>29653597BEHOLD THE PANTYFINDER GENERAL
>>29653489Hey we could probably recognise the rank leaders...On a good day.SometimesOh and Kasuga maybe
>>29653620Still trying to finalize her design...
>>29652971 >>29652973 >>29652985 >>29652986Setsuna's one good eye seems to narrow as she continues to stare at you in total silence, before she finally nods. "Squad Taiho is not at fault," she begins. "There are no irreconcilable differences between me and my squad."...Then what's this written on her transfer request, then? Because it says just that."I was advised by my own squadmates to use that as my official reason for transfer. They assured me that it would mean an automatic approval." Setsuna shakes her head, her face still curiously clear of any emotion whatsoever. "I see now that such a belief is based only on hearsay and guesswork."You shake your head here. At least there isn't any bad blood with her and her squad, but...there's probably something about entering false information on official paperwork. You'll have to look that up later.For now, though. What IS her real reason for the transfer?"Revenge," Setsuna replies, unblinkingly. "My family was killed two years ago in an avoidable accident, with the culprit remaining at large, even safe with his own family. I wish to finally put my soul to rest by enacting justice." It's here that she draws something from the inside of her sleeve and places it on the table. It's her Officio ID card. "As I realize this violates our Officio's rules and regulations regarding civilians, I wish to be transferred permanently to the Seventh, so any action that I may take will not be traced back to the Ninth."...Ah.Setsuna bows again. "Please do not try to dissuade me from this path. I have spent most of my waking hours trying to convince myself of the same thing, through meditation and prayer. But I cannot rest while the souls of my family rot in their graves, waiting for a justice that will never come." She looks up at you with cold conviction in her one good eye. "I must do this, Warmaster."How do you respond?Approve her request.Deny her request.
>>29653620Didn't Hat post the completed version of that pic a while back?>>29653629Is Kasuga the Callidus rank leader?
>>29653650[x]Approve her requestWe've killed people over less.
>>29653653No she was the other one of Squad Hiryu that we saw who iirc we handed Ayumu's soul gem off to
>>29653650[X] I appreciate your dedication in not having this traced back to us. One final question: Who? >>29653653I posted a rougher sketch and am cleaning it up now. The Callidus rank leader is Enishu
>>29653352>>29653423>Using Misaka to troll AmberBest Idea.
>>29653650[X]Deny her request.But 'overlook' her killing the guy.
>>29653650[X]"May I ask who you're going after?"
>>29653650>[X]Approve her request."Just remember that you are most likely to be executed for breaking regulations once the 7th finds out."
>>29653694This.I'm thinking of assigning her a mission as well.One month to recon the target. To know everything about the person.At the end, if shes still willing to go through with it even after understanding how it will affect the people around the target, then she has permission to kill.
>>29653650this is a thought one she has a good reason but revenge is also the roots our problems with the prophetso I'll voto for this >>29653694
>>29653650"Far be it for me to disapprove of revenge killings. Who are you killing that you're worried about the Ninth taking the rap for it? Because I've killed a lot of people for a lot less during my stint."If she insists on the transfer: [X]Approve her request."Happy Hunting."
>>29653650[x]"Any proof? Does he have family? Do you have a plan?"
>>29653650Grab the stamp, as if intending to approve but stop at the last moment."Who is it?"
>>29653650>[X]Deny her request."The Seventh does not exist to shield this Officio from the actions of it's contractees.Whatever actions you feel you have to take, the responsibility is on our head."
>>29653650[x]Approve her request."I doubt anything I say would dissuade you from this course of action. I appreciate your concern for the well being of this Officio, though I regret losing a valuable asset such as yourself. Request for transfer approved. And good hunting Vindicare Setsuna."
>>29653650"Request denied. In fact, I will be suspending you for...three days. During such time you will have none of the privileges, nor the duties and responsibilities, of a member of this officio."Let it sink in what we're actually having her do."I trust that the situation will be resolved by then?"
>>29653650Changed my mind.[x] Deny her request. Note this to her. "If you get caught, I'll have you executed.""If you get caught, of course."
>>29653761Heh, I actually like this.
>>29653761This is so much better.captcha: short trolloonYou know it.
>>29653765You know i think she's the type to admit her own sins. The reason she's transferring specifically to the Seventh is probably exactly because she intends to have them execute her.
>>29653650[X] denyI never did pay much attention to what our officio's rule said, I do know that revenge is something I cannot and should not deny you given my pastI shall not accept this transfer request, there is a however only one of me and I cannot see or know everything every girl under my command does, if you are able to do this without being found I will pretend that it like your request for a transfer never happened
>>29653650>>29653761I like this one better than my vote of >>29653681So [x]change vote to >>29653761
>>29653761"Also... the next time you meditate, consider the difference between justice and vengeance."
>>29653761This... Isn't bad. I'm still wary of approving a request for revenge, which is why I want to know more. However, if we append this clause >>29653765 I'd be more willing to think it a good idea. We're basically giving her free reign and outlining consequences for if she messes up
>>29653650The whole reason she chose the Seventh is probably because she doesn't WANT to get away without being caught.I'm going with >>29653761 this
>>29653761[X] seconding this, but she must tell us who he isShe seems a smart girl, she will figure it out
>>29653824Eh, might as well.
>>29653650[x] Deny her request to transfer. One layer of officio changing isn't going to hide from anyone's views that she's trained in the ninth, and it'd bring the same amount of dishonor. If she wants to do this without disgracing the officio too badly, she can eat a bullet afterwards or far more importantly don't get caught.
>>29653734I go with this.
>>29653650I'm not quite satisfied with her wanting revenge for an "accident." Or I should say I'm not satisfied with her wording. An accident implies nobody was at fault. If it was intentional, that is a different story. The families of our girls are under the protection of the officio if I remember correctly. If someone were to murder one of our girls relative it becomes and officio matter. A living family makes for happier, more productive girls. We have a vested interest in keeping them alive because it keeps grief down. I would see no reason why we could not grant her permission to get her revenge.Continue with the questioning, and ask if she knows who the guy is.
>>29653650Just ask yourselves : What Would Mami Do?
>>29653860An "avoidable accident". Somebodies neglect lead to her family being killed. Again, too vague. I'm really tempted to let her go through with it, but I want to know more
>>29653930>What Would Mami Do?Shoot soulgems?
>>29653650[X] "See you keep using these vague statements like "avoidable accident", I can understand this may be a touchy subject but you are asking me to sign somebodies death warren here."
>>29653930Probably try to talk her out of the revenge. we are clearly not Mami.
>>29653860Imma be honest. Her appeal to justice swayed me.Justice is not a natural phenomenon. There is no element of justice. There are no particles of justice.It is an illusion in the minds of humanity, and only by the involvement of humanity can it ever be realised.The Request is Denied, but her purpose tacitly endorsed.>>29653930Probably murder the fuck out of everybody with a beautific smile on her face.
>>29653694>>29653734>>29653650[x] Both of those. Denying her outright seems a bad idea just allowing her to do it.
>>29653930Tie people up?Show off in front of the newbies?
>>29653930Lose her head?
>>29653972Probably talk her out of revenge, then arrange for the person she was going to kill to have an "accident."
>>29653997>Denying her outright seems a bad ideaI disagree.She is our contractee.The Seventh is for girls who want to live and, for reasons, can't do it anywhere else. It is not a place for girls who want to die.
>>29653935Yeah. Not sure about Japan, but in US for example (according to wiki) Negligence that leads to death is an actual cime (Criminal negligence) with imprisonment as punishment.Her argument just sounds a bit fishy. Asking for specific details and deciding afterwards would have been the smart thing to do.
>>29653761[x]Suspend her.Ooooh! This! I like this. This is SO Kharn.
>>29653935Plus this isn't the kind of thing the 7th does. They are about around peace and spirituality. Revenge doesn't fall into that realm. If it isn't a kill we would support, it certainly wouldn't be one they would.
>>29654049Well, from the way she makes it sound, it's someone influential who clearly "got away with it". This is just my own assumption though, which is why my main appeal here has been to ask for more information
>>29653795If she wants to get caught, we personally don't care THAT much about the officio and a bit of bad rep mostly gets shoved on Kyubey. And it might make her think twice about it then. Either she does it without getting any blame on us, or she bites the bullet and accepts that her actions would have consequences to our Officio, too.
>>29654069If she wants to kill someone, "The Murderers" is probably exactly the right Officio to do it from....actually, what is the policy on MGs hiring MGs?
>>29653720>>29653694>>29653743>>29653860>the culprit remaining at large, even safe with his own family. >His family>of incubators
I have a feeling that she's going to kill the 'culprit' and then max out on despair once she realizes she's taken away someone's family member and condemned them to suffer the way she did. It was an unavoidable accident, after all. She knows that. This justice talk is just a way to mask her pain and give her some reason to continue living.She's not coming back from her vacation if we give her one.
>>29654145It was an avoidable accident. not unavoidable.
>>29654132She said he was a civilian. Plus if she wants to kill an incubator, I say we tell her good luck and send her on her way. We have been trying to do that since we came into this officio.
>>29654160Does she know that with absolute certainty? How?
>>29654160Oh, nevermind. Hm, would still be good to know who that target is before sending her on vacation. Wouldn't be good if it's anyone important.
Shouldn't we lie and tell her a civilian that kills a MG's family is no longer a civilian?Also tell her that, if possible, she should spare his family.
We should probably really check who it is she's going to kill, first.Knowing our luck it was Midori's dad or something.
>>29654253Or worse: Charles!
>>29654253Why would he murder a family?
>>29654271He's not a civilian. He is an important aspect to the well being of the 9th officio Warmaster.
>>29654212"More contractees for us. Someone's going to be mad at least. Then again, I think someone wishing that we were all dead is probably not too good."
>>29654271>Charles>>29654350>He is an important aspect to the well being of the 9th officio Warmaster.did... did I miss a memo?
>>29654346There were no murders. There was an avoidable accident.Maybe he was driving home one night after having too much to- wait, he has a pub right across the road.But you get my meaning, right?
>>29654383CHarles is Chiaki's bartender
>>29654383The dude who runs the bar.
>>29654387oooh, THAT Charles
>>29654383He's the bartender of the bar Chiaki usually goes to.
>>29654428Given that the bar is actually called Charles, I honestly have no idea how I failed to make that connectection
List of people Chiaki would go on a warpath of revenge if they're ever harmed:1. Mami2. Midori 3. Charles
>>29654475Can add Kyobro and Midori to that list
>>29654475You forgot Kyoko.After we ALREADY WENT on a warpath of revenge after she got harmed.
>>29654475You forgot Misaka. AGAIN. You monster.Though, we'd probably have to move quick to beat Kharn to the punch
>>29654475Kyoko, maybe?Hey, you think Oriko already contacted her and asked to meet with her without Sayaka knowing?
>>29654504I don't remember this
>>29654502>me>MidoriMeant to say Misaka,
>>29654475Kyouko and Misaka too. That's a healthy number.
>>29653972Really, any attempt by WARMASTER MURDERFACE to persuade her that killing isn't the answer is just going to come off as a huge steaming pile of hypocrisy. We cannot claim the moral high ground here. The best we can do is direct her to do it in the way that is least likely to blow up in our (and/or her) face.
>>29654534>>29654522>>29654506>>29654475No mention of sayaka?She is a bitch we hate but no one else is allowed to hurt her, she is our punching bag
>>29654550Well, we can try and talk her out of it if it turns out the dude she's gonna kill is related to someone we care about who is currently a magical girl of the 9th.That has legitimate reasons for being terrible that have nothing to do with our murdering everyone.
>>29654554He hurt Kyoko?I should just reread through the archive. I could take the time to read the writeups too.
>>29654576>He hurt Kyoko?Broke her back by throwing her against a wall.
>>29654572She would probably be too busy cheering the opposition, hahaha
>>29654573Yeah, if it's likely to cause witching out of another girl in the 9th, that's totally legitimate warmaster business.
>>29654576Broke her goddamn spine, man.Remember cripple jousting?
>>29654572We can expect Kyoko to take care of that better than we ever would.
>>29654614>Remember cripple jousting?No?
>>29654621But we would help. Sayaka's a bitch but Chiaki is kinda sorta almost maybe friends with her...maybe.
>>29654614I remembered that, but I forgot how she got injured.Yeah, Kyoko's definitely on the list.
>>29654625Us pushing Legless Midori in a wheelchair.Sayaka pushing spinal-injury Kyouko in a wheelchair.One crutch per person.Sayakla was all nofun though.
>>29654625Kyouko with a messed up spine, Midori without legs, Sayaka, Chiaki... Cripple jousting
Rolled 9>>29654660oh shit, did you draw trhat.ppffffhthahahah
>>29654572>No mention of sayaka?She's far enough down out list that Kyoko would get to it way before we ever did.
>>29654702No, sadly. I'm not that good. That was drawn by Midori.
>>29654639Hard to say. We might be killing them on principle or because we want to be there for Kyoko, but it wouldn't be the same as the other girls we mentioned.
>>29654639Well, we've earned...1100 Sayaka Points so far, I think (100 for the Concert, 1000 for this morning). That brings our standings with her up to...-8899?
>>29654791*shrug* every little bit helps at this point
>>29654791A lot of those a temporary tsun-tsun points that will erode naturally over time.
>>29653761 >>29653765 >>29653796You return Setsuna's unblinking stare, before taking her transfer request and handing it back to her, unstamped and unapproved."...I see." The young woman's shoulders droop a bit, but otherwise her expression remains unchanged. She begins to bow, until you stop here by speaking.You're denying her request, you tell her. In fact, because she lied on her request form - you're also suspending her for...three days. Yes. That should be enough. During which she will have none of the privileges, duties and responsibilities of a member of the Ninth Officio.It's here that Setsuna seems to react visibly. "I must protest, I--" She begins, but suddenly falls silent as you continue to stare at her. Waiting for her to realize what you've just said, to let it all sink in.Three days should be enough, yes? To resolve everything?"...More than enough, Warmaster." Setsuna's scarred lips twist into something approaching a smile. It's a twisted, ugly thing more resembling a sneer than anything else, but it's a smile nonetheless.Just one question, though. Who is it?"A politician," The Vindicare replies after a moment's hesitation. "...My apologies. I don't mean to conceal information from you, Warmaster, but I wish to keep my target to myself."Ah. Well. At least it's not someone you know.You take her Officio ID card and shove it in one of your desk drawers, before waving her away. Setsuna bows to you again, before backing out of the room, closing the door behind her.Right. Okay. That's...half of the stuff done.You get to the retirement benefit packages now. ...Well, nothing all that contentious here, just papers waiting for you to authorize the benefits of three Magical Girls. Three Magical Girls that managed to beat the odds and live long enough to enjoy retirement.You stamp each paper without looking at their names, and dump them onto the finished pile. The less you have to look at them the better. The lucky fucks.[1/2]
>>29655074This leaves the message from the Second, finally. You pick up the elaborate envelope, and make to unseal it, to see what's written inside - when you see the recipient's name written in script near the seal itself.>KYOKO SAKURA...The fuck? What does the Second want with Kyoko?Open the envelope, read the message first. Let's see what they want with her.Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655074we still have to actually suspend Setsuna. We should request that paperwork.

>>29655101[x]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655101>[x]Open the envelope, read the message first. Let's see what they want with her.It was sent to us. If Kyoko needs to see it, that will be decided after we do.

>>29655101>Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655118She's not doing anything.I remember NECO's profile on Kyoko. Kyoko is in demand.Call her in, give her the letter, and ask if you'd just prefer that we burn all incoming transfer requests from now onwards
>>29655101>[X]Open the envelope, read the message first. Let's see what they want with her.if it came to us we might as well see it
>>29655101>[X]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.If it were for anyone else, I'd vote that we open it. Especially if it were for Sayaka.By the by, I believe the 2nd is the Officio where the Blessed Lady cult first started.
>>29655101[X]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.Oh, Kyoko, you have mail~.
>>29655101>[x]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655101>>29655160>[X]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655101[X] cal kyouko, tell her she has a big fancy letter to look at
>>29655101[X]Open the envelope, read the message first. Let's see what they want with her.Didn't Sayaka want to talk to her about Oriko? Now might be a bad time.
>>29655101[x]Read it.Everyone wants to be hardcore Warmaster. And even normal Homura is a douche who would read other people's mail.
>>29655101[X] Read it, then call her over
>>29655101[x]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.It's rude to read someone else's mail, and there are probably rules against tampering with another Officio's mail like that.
>>29655198But we're also lazy and reading things is hard. It's easier to just give it to Kyoko and watch her expressions instead.
Can someone help me out here? I thought the 9th stopped contracting Venenum and is using the ones left as nurses. So why is Kanzaki Ichigo on the list? Did I just not remember that right?
>Certain channels say a few other Officios are hoping to snap Sakura Kyouko up and push her toward her full potential. Can you really get much better than the Murderers, though?
>>29655118[x] Hey Kyoko, mail call. Check this shit out before I set it on fire. >>29655101Her dad was a preacher in canon, wasn't he? It's possible her knowledge of religious doctrine might be part of why they want to talk to her.
>>29655242I would hazard a guess that at least one of the retirement benefit requests that we just approved sight unseen was at least one outgoing Venenum
>>29655101SAKURA KYOUKO![X] Call her in, don't open the letter.
>>29655242The rank isn't used actively anymore aside from the Thirteenth Officio. Still, girls might be recruited and gain certain powers that make them more suitable towards a certain rank than others. In the Ninth, the Venenum are mostly employed as nurses.
>>29655101[x]Read her mail
>>29655315Well, nurses and doctors, I guess.
>>29655101[x]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.No reason to snoop.
>>29655415>No reason to snoop.There is every reason to snoop. All the time.In this case, our miraculous powers of deduction have simply provided the most likely answer without infringing Friend Kyouko's privacy.
>>29655101No Kyoko don't go.
[x]Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.
>>29655444I think the more important question should have been:Can we read the letter and reseal the envelope without Kyouko realizing?Will Kyouko finding out that we read her letter negatively impact our relationship, and if so, how badly?
>>29655491All we need to do is timestop and read over Kyoko's shoulder.
>>29655514We don't know if Timestop is fixed yet. It may still be disabled.
Kyouko doesn't get to leave the Officio before we do.We can't even pretend to do this job properly without her.
>>29655570"Don't leave me Kyouko! You're my bro! My flatbro! "
>>29655514Or you know, we could just ask. If it was deeply personal or somesuch, it would surely have been sent to Kyoko directly.Let her read it, and then ask why the Second is sending her mail.
>>29655074For some reason, I'm really liking this quest more then usual. Managing MG is a nice change of pace
>>29655878I hope someone has made a note of all the MG names neatly in her journal...
>>29655878No complaints here. It's been a less stupid version of my old job. Makes for a nice change of pace thread
I still find it kind of funny back from thread 1 we were a smoking drug abusing loner.Over a hundred threads later (or what seems like it) We're a responsible watch wearing dildo.CHaracter development is a hell of a thing
>>29655961its been...well over a hundred threads.
>>29655961/tg/ is a hell of a drug.
>>29655961I still maintain that we are not a responsible watch-wearing Dildo. We're just doing a passable imitation if you don't look too closely.We did, after all, just cut a girl loose to murder a politician because of an avoidable accident.
>>29655961To be fair, I miss the smoking and the drug abuse. And the murder.
>>29655961>Over a hundred threads later (or what seems like it)This is thread 172.
>>29655993Shoulda told her that we'd deny all responsibility and have her executed if it was traced back to the Ninth...
>>29655993Let me give you that emphasis.>an avoidable """"ACCIDENT""""When "politicians" are involved and people die it wasn't exactly an accident, not was it avoidable if the power-hungry fuck had set his mind on the matter.
>>29655994I do tooIt might have been hundreds of threads but it hasn't been much in game time so we never got to really get all the drug fuelled murder out of our systems
>>29655972Though in-character, it has only been a few months, right?People must be wondering how Murderface 180'd so quickly. Or they would be if it weren't for the manga-induced yuri smokescreen.
>>29655242I don't think Kyuubey knows what type of MG he ends up making until they make their wish. If the girl ends up as a Venenum or Vanus rank, they just end up doing medic or office duty instead of field work.
Help me, anyan...I woke up, and I was in a cardboard box..Decu started banging on it and making terrible ghost noises until I did his terrible bidding...his terribidding, nya...
>>29656048It is better than you deserve
>>29656048Was it because you were a bad cat and slept in instead of posting banners and baiting stupid anons?
>>29656043Well, until they can qualify as a different rank, at least.
>>29656048So THAT'S where you were. I've had to fill in for your job all morning.I guess I can leave the rest to you now.
>>29656048>Making Decu angry>AFTER HE STARTED LIFTINGIt's like you have a deathwish, a box is just a slap on the wrist.

>>29656041I'm pretty sure that less than a week has passed since we returned from Siberia ~90 threads ago.
>>29656124yeah, but what happened to Chiaki in Siberia was a "BFD" as Neco put it.
>>29656124It's been around a week, approximately. We got back, messed around the Officio a bit, had the housewarming party, a talk with Iori and this added up to a few days, then the Ruri mission that was a few days, and then the date that was also a few days and now everything else since the date has occurred in a single day. It's probably been a week since we got back? Close to a week
>>29656142And losing our memory how many times before wasn't?The only difference this time was our eye colour changed and we got resistance to magical brain cancer
>>29656124I think it was over a week since we got settled in did the Ruri thing and our date.Just a little over a week maybe 2
>>29655457Never understood this, really. Sayaka is sexier than Kyouko.
>>29656193But Sayaka isn't a narcissist, so she wouldn't count herself.
>>29656193Kyouko, stop posting on 4chan and come check your mail.
>>29656189And had fragments of past personalities merged back into us.Don't forget that part.
Is it just me or did that grudge duel with Sayaka have Jetstream Sam written all over it?
>>29656229>start fighting>get disarmed>saya-pyon starts punching our face in>we stab her through the heartYep, sounds like it.Wait, no.
>>29656229>Sayaka had Sam's weapon>Starts using her fists when disarmedNah m7 that's just yu
>>29656221Not really, they were already us they just became fragmented due to us possibly witching out thanks to concentrated grief explosion right in our face
Chikuwa soon anons
>>29656022Yes. Yes we probably should have.
>>29656325We can still do it anyways. That's assuming she wasn't planning on a murder-suicide from the start.
>>29656339If she gets caught we will do that.I think Decu left that out because considering the magical girl world that's a given
>>29656339Either that or we send another MG to shadow her.Eversor, right? We should ask Kyobro her opinion on the matter.
>>29656375"hypothetically", of course.
>>29656375Plausible deniability.Which we don't have because we put her on leave. This is retarded.
>>29656403I mean, to keep an eye on her unofficially and make sure she comes back in one piece.
>>29656403Eh, it's not so bad. Just have to twist the truth a little. She came to us with a transfer request to which she couldn't provide a suitable reasoning. We put her on leave for wasting our time. Simple ~
>>29656403We put her on disciplinary leave for falsifying Officio documents. It's not like we (officially) granted her a Revenge Murder LoA.
>>29656403We have paperwork citing the reason for her attempted transfer was due to teammate issues. We can just say we thought that was dumb and put her on leave until we had time to investigate the matter further.
>>29656470Actually I think we handed the form back to her and she left with it. I guess the documentation got lost. Oops.
>>29656428We "just so happened" to put her on leave which absolves her of all her crimes, and so there's two things that happen then - >so we let her off the hookAs if anyone would believe that - we pick up the contract killer rep or whatever, we officially say "NO CONTRACTS ON CIVVIES" but if we want someone offed we just coerce one of our magical girls to take some leave and then go kill their target. >so we execute herWhat was the point of putting her on leave if we're going to waste her anyway? It just makes it look more suspicious.
>>29656499That's only if she gets caught anon.
I'm pretty sure we can count on Kyouko to know exactly what we were doing, what we want to achieve and make suggestions to help achieve that without making a big deal.If it was Sayaka, we'd probably need to bullshit a bit more.
>>29656499It doesn't absolve her of crimes. It absolves us of blame. If she does her job properly and doesn't get caught, she returns to work in three days and nobody is the wiser. If she fucks up, we disavow her and execute her.
>>29656499>/We suspended her for falsifying documents not gave her a vacation, we're 'punishing' her
>>29656552not nessicarily. If she fucks up, and it becomes a big deal (which, y'know, it might. because politicians, and the order comes down from Koobs), we may need to execute her. Which we will do without a second thought.
>>29655101Leave the envelope alone. Call Kyoko over, have her receive the message here.Well, no reason we can't discuss it with her like friends. Or abuse our rank.
>>29656581It's long been over. More than an hour, even.
decu is kill
>>29656545>>29656552>>29656558If she doesn't get caught that's fine, and we didn't need to put her off active roster at the same time a politician who was implicated in an accident that killed her family mysteriously dies. If she does get caught, she would have been disavowed and executed anyway.Ah, whatever. Not enough of a problem to make a massive fuss over now that choice is done with.
>>29655118 >>29655124 >>29655124 >>29655136Okay, no. You'll do a lot of things without blinking, sure, but reading your best friend's mail isn't one of them.You open your laptop again, and tell Fuu to call up Kyoko to your office. Important business, top priority.Also, for Hino Setsuna to be suspended from the roster for three days, effective immediately."O-of course, Warmaster--"You shut your laptop before the pink-haired girl could even finish her sentence. Lighting a cigarette, you glare down at the gilded, elaborate envelope with Kyoko's name on it, sitting there on your desk, all innocent and quiet like that.No, you don't know what this is about, but you're not liking it. Not one bit.Kyoko comes barging into your office three minutes later, in form-fitting workout gear and completely covered in sweat. You blink at this, suddenly unable to tear your eyes away from her bare, glistening midriff."Yo, Murderface!" The red-haired Eversor grins, dabbing at her forehead with a fresh white towel. "What's up? I heard you were asking for me? Something going on or what?"You take a drag from your cigarette, before holding up the Second's letter up with your free hand. Kyoko blinks her one good eye at it, and it's here that you see the color drain from her face."...Aww, it's another one of those?" She shakes her head, before wiping her face with her towel. "Man, those guys are really persistent, huh?"What does she mean, another one? She's gotten one of these before?"Yeah, like three of them! Just got one last month, too!"Huh. Well, what is it about, then?"Well, uh..." Kyoko looks at you from above her towel, before shaking her head. "Nah, just go on and open it, read it for yourself."Really? She's okay with you doing that?"Sure! It's mine after all, I can let ya read it, right?"[1/2]
>>29656579Not necessarily execute her? We ABSOLUTELY should execute her if she, a trained assassin with actual magical powers, can't pull off a clean hit on a mundane target.
>>29656581>or abuse our rank leadersWhich we should do more often.
>>29656683That...makes sense, you guess. You break the seal, open the envelope, and pull out its contents.Jesus Christ. Parchment? Is this fucking parchment? The Second writes their goddamn letters on parchment? Haven't they ever heard of e-mail?You shake your head, and unfold the papers. The print's...no, it's not even printed, it's written. With actual ink and flourishes to the letters and shit.>Kyouko Sakura, >After last year's Walpurgisnacht, our Officios have shared a tremendous burden and lost many women both dear to use and important in our operating structure; it is the Knights' sincere hope that this may strengthen the bonds between the Second and the Ninth even further; it is when times are at their darkest that we must be at our most vigilant, lest our eternal struggle against despair overwhelm us and turn us to heresy. >It is with that very spirit - and with great personal joy - that I am sending you this latter. Through careful monitoring and deliberation, we have come to believe you possess the rare set of skills and rarer mindset necessary to join the foremost legion of witch-hunters in the world.

Alondight>-A. Pendragon>P.S. Please discuss this in detail with your Warmaster and Incubator before sending a response; bad blood is the last thing we need right now. [2/3]
>>29656689>can't pull off a clean hit on a mundane target.You know that politicians and such can not only hire magical security, but that mundane security and PMC groups are deploying anti-magic weapons and equipment now, right?That just because a target is mundane, doesn't mean that their security is the same, right?
>>29656702That's just the first page. The second page is in more informal handwriting, but no less neat. No less ordered. Looks like it was written with a regular jackoff's pen, too.>Apologies for stealing one of your Eversors, but we've been heavily reviewing replacement candidates since the Betrayer wiped out nearly our entire Templar squad last year. Out of the Ninth's operatives, only Sayaka Miki and Kyouko Sakura passed all of our preliminary testing, but we wouldn't be foolish enough to request a transfer from your Equerry. Sakura, however, would be a magnificent addition to our witch-hunting forces, and while I understand you'd be suffering a great loss, I humbly request you look carefully at the bigger picture before you approve or deny this request. >If you want to be cynical, you could also consider this a request for reparations regarding the Betrayer's killing spree last year. I won't confirm or deny that, myself, but it's going to take some doing to placate Her Majesty if you refuse. Heretics, suffer not the witch to live, etc. etc. >Hope to get a favorable response from you soon! >-R. Alondight...Well. So the Second wants to steal Kyoko out from under you?How do you react?
>>29656724also, the dude is in seclusion, and the poor bitch is an Eversor.If she was a Vindicare, I'd be very disapointed, though.
>>29656734[x]"Well? Shall I rebuff them or tell them to fuck off?"
>>29656734"Sorry Kyouko, I've already approved my maximum allotment of transfer requests today. Looks like you're staying with us."
>>29656748>If she was a Vindicare, I'd be very disapointed, though.If she was a Vindicare or a Callidus, I wouldn't think any more of it.But she's an Eversor. This will likely come back to bite us later.
>>29656734Isn't this the bitch who led her forces to take Mami with her golden rod?
>>29656734[X] "I want to make it perfectly clear that I'm not "giving" you away. I want to know your opinion on this. Is this what you put off talking about during the concert?"
>>29656734Call them dildos>captch amoral faelierYep we are bad with morals
>>29656734Well, I've already made it clear.If Kyoko is leaving, she needs to give us enough notice that we can pack out bags first because we totally shouldn't be anywhere NEAR this job without her and Sayaka to cover our asses.[X] "I'm assuming that you're not that keen on the job?"
>>29656734"Dear Pompous Dildoes..."
>>29656774That was the 3rd she dead
>>29656734[x] "She's right, we probably do stand to gain if you went to the Second. But I know you don't want to, Sayaka would kill me if I ordered you, and I doubt QB would like the idea very much. "Do you think they'd consider joint ops or only getting you on loan for a month to be enough?"
>>29656734>Apologies for stealing one of your Eversors, but we've been heavily reviewing replacement candidates since the Betrayer wiped out nearly our entire Templar squad last year. Well then.. It looks like Kharn was busy earning her nickname in other places too.
>>29656702Set it on fire and call up Fuu and tell her to send the ashes back to the second and to set up a standing order that all letters sent to you by the second should also be burnt and the ashes sent back
>>29656782This reminds me of a story of ww2 where a german commander gave a very, fancy, well articulate request to surrender to allied forces in the battle of the bulge.The commander replied with a written letter with one word 'nuts'I think we should do the same but instead of nuts, write 'dildos'in fancy ink and parchment.
>>29656804Also, I think we jmay have just found Magical Girl Saber
>>29656734"Didn't the 2nd get the memo that you and Sayaka are a set?"
>>29656734>[X] "I want to make it perfectly clear that I'm not "giving" you away. I want to know your opinion on this. Is this what you put off talking about during the concert?"
>>29656734Templar squad probably deserved it.Tell the 2nd no thanks
>>29656734"And what do you think of this, Kyouko?"
>>29656829So you want to basically cause a war with the Second? Probably one of the more powerful Officio's?
>>29656734[X]"Since this is the third letter... I take it you're not planning on going anywhere?"I want to hear it from kyoko.the bigger picture is that Kyoko and Sayaka are a package deal, either you get them both or not at fucking all.
>>29656782>>29656803>>29656830No dildoes are necessery just a "no."
>>29656837This is the second magical girl saber we've run into. Kharn had just fucked Nero at the start of her flashback.
>>29656851>Templar squad probably deserved it.Given that they technically suffered a witch to live, they probably did.
>>29656851>about 75% of the Betrayer's victims>deserving of anythingShe has the self-control of a bottle of nitrogycerine.
>>29656873They probably attacked Kharn because she's half witch.We need to investigate before making plans, like call Kharn or Kyubey and reports
>>29656734Simply put, they're asking Kyouko. That means she gets input. If she doesn't want to go, she doesn't want to go. That's not on our head, and Alondight has no right to imply that we should force one of our top Eversors to change Officios when she doesn't want to. Especially given the office politics clusterfuck that would result.So, we tell the Second that, while we do not deny their request, she does. The Second can't raise a ruckus without seeming petulant, given that we, as Warmaster, have cooperated with them--it's just that the girl in question chose not to transfer.
>>29656734Seibah pls. You're suposed to be Umu's bitch.[X] "I want to make it perfectly clear that I'm not "giving" you away. I want to know your opinion on this. Is this what you put off talking about during the concert?"
>>29656863according to them they desperately need manpower, they're not in a position to start anythingAnyway exterminating officios is kinda what we're notorious for (not saying we should though) we just need to send a strong message that poaching wont be tolerated
Hey! Did Yuu not mention black templars?[x] Make joke about not letting them take Kyouko away since you would be lost without her, then ask why the 2nd wants her so bad and ask for info about the templars.
>>29656830We shouldn't write "dildos," we should actually send them a box full of dildos. Make sure we send enough for each Templar to have one, it sounds like they need them more than they need Kyouko.
>>29656734[x] So, do you have a standard way of refusing them yet?
>>29656930>Make joke about not letting them take Kyouko away since you would be lost without herexcept it's no joke.I am -absolutely serious- when I say that we need notice from Kyoko if she plans to leave so we can leave first.
Even if we didn't care about Kyouko, we couldn't just give her to Saber. Lancers have a pretty short lifespan as it is, less so in her presence.
>>29656734[X] fuck that, she's ours... And Sayaka's I guessGet a nicely written "go to hell" letter from midori or something and reply
>>29656928>they're not in a position to start anythingThey are, considering that they could ally with the other Officio's who are pissed off at us. Not to mention, QB is already considered insane by the other Incubators. If it wasn't for him being able to continue hitting the assigned quota, we'd probably have been given a talking to by the First.
Kyoko wouldn't leave without Sayaka, are those Officio's intel that shitty?I mean, even NECO knows this much.
>>29656941I take back burning it this is what we should send them, with the word compensation printed in bold on the box
So I wonder who else besides Saber is cameoed in this officio. Integra?
>>29656972I'm not entirely sure I remember right but I don't think she was seibah, not from the writeups, unless that was another officio. I think there was lightning involved, and someone who was a Kagari-expy.
>>29656993[X] "Regrettably, I am unable to countanence the loss to this Officio of Kyoko Sakura on the grounds that the loss to this would be insurmountable.You can have Sayaka though. Fuck that bitch."
>All these "Get fucked" responsesHo boy, I hope you guys are ready for inter-Officio war.
>>29657020>are those Officio's intel that shitty?They are the Black Templars. Information gathering isn't one of their strong points.
>>29656734>"Stop bothering me with trivial matters such as a bunch of little girls playing King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. We at the Ninth actually have work to do."Warmaster of the second is Saber?
>>29657035This was exactly what I was thinking
>>29656941Only if its dragon dildos
>>29656734do do doooo
>>29657042I guess, but they know enough to ask for Kyoko.
From what I remember, I think the Warmaster was Nero and Saber was her Equerry or something.
Alright, pausing thread for now! Next thread on Thursday!Sorry for the slowness at the tail end, the network was being really spotty for some reason! In any case, no writeups tonight I think, so questions answered before I go to sleep!
>>29657074You think they know and are asking anyway for reasons we don't know about yet? Like gauging our reaction?
>>29657074So they looked at the Ninth Officio's website.
>>29657092Does any of the named MG's own one or more Dragon Dildos?
>>29657092What does chiaki know about the 2nd IC?
>>29656972yeah, plus her death will probably be either anticlimactic, self-incflicted, or both. nobody wants to see that
>>29657092Will we have time to read the uplifting primer soon?
>>29656683>You blink at this, suddenly unable to tear your eyes away from her bare, glistening midriffChiaki is a slut isn't she?
>>29657092I remember hearing that koobs had a change of heart about how he did contracts, but I can't remember when he did that timeline-wise. How many years ago was it from the present?
>>29657116the contents of that letter contain the entirety of what we know, I think.
>>29657092Can we get a revote, I rather not get a war but we should consult Kyouko
>>29657092Is Oriko's cult the same cult that Wendy and Amber are slumming in? Or are we dealing with two separate cults? Or do we not know this answer yet?
Since there was a bit of confusion about this in the previous thread, let me ask for confirmation. When Chiaki was put back together did RibbonHomura also get "absorbed"? Is she the fragment in DEagle that was nicknamed "Dildoes?
>>29657130Don't be stupid, we all know Kyoko is the sexiest.
>>29657092Will we get to meet the new contracts?Cult arc when?
>>29657092With which of her own past selves would Chiaki most likely make out if she had to pick one?
>>29657038Think of all the points
>>29657130No, but she knows sexiness when she sees it.
>>29657130Chiaki is just the Queen of the Lesbos.The number of people she'd actually fuck is vanishingly small, but that doesn't mean she doesn't appreciate Kyoko abs.I mean, who doesn't?
>>29657092Decu can you give us the names of all green-haired characteres that have been mentioned so far?
>>29657130Less a slut, more a sexual predator.
>>29657130>enough girls for a watermelon endYou hadn't figured that out?>>29657092Also Decu, will we be seeing MG Dead Master? Just asking since she's my favorite of the Otherselves in brs.
>>29657169Oh, Dildoes, definately. The hatefucking would be EPIC
>>29657115I...I don't think so! D:>>29657116Not much, only she knows that they're a bit religious and all, and that they're established in Great Britain. >>29657124Probably not in its entirety, but relevant sections I'll make sure are available!>>29657132Definitely long before MGNQ. I think it was halfway around the time the Officio system was introduced, so maybe 30+ years in the past.
>>29657092thanks for running!Why is Kyoko so sexy?
>>29657156Given what has been said so far I think it is safe to think that Wendy's church which worships the shieldmaiden and oriko's which hates her as tue destroyer aren't the same thing
>>29657211Dead Master is Kharn, so yes.
>>29657156Pretty sure they're not, Oriko's group is fighting the blessed lady and the end of the world by trying to kill us. The other cult seems to be following the blessed lady, and might want to help us.
>>29657223Just how powerful is the Second?How many Officios did we piss off during Walpurgisnacht last year? Both as Murderface, and the Officio as a whole?How many Officios are pissed at us enough that they would consider joining together to attack the Ninth? And would the First help them or stay neutral?
>>29657012we practically wiped out an entire officio with 3 people, granted 1 was Kharn. Anyway no sane officio is going to start an inter-officio war for literally no reason, at most they'll probablly just get really passive aggressive
>>29657246Black Gold Saw is Kharn.
>>29657162I'm assuming that is questionable for a reason.
>>29657223Did we just send Hino Sakura to her death?
>>29657246No she isn't. Kharn's Black Gold Saw.
>>29657223Has any girl ever wished for or had their powers as a result of their wish cause immortality?Understandably they would still die to soul gem destruction but no expiry date and ability to regen perfectly and entirely from a mess of blood and giblets style
>>29657256>we practically wiped out an entire officio with 3 people, granted 1 was Kharn.No, three people dealt the final blow and killed their Warmaster. There was a lot more to the war with the Third than what we saw in the Kharn sidequest.
>>29657256>we practically wiped out an entire officio with 3 peopleNo, we killed 100 Magical Girls because Ahriman WANTED them dead. And we only won against Ahriman because Kharn got the Golden Chainaxes AND Pinky withdrew her support for Ahriman.Get the facts right.
>>29657223>30+ years I thought he had it after meeting Mami, or am i wrong.>mfw Mami is old enough to be our mother
>>29657284Only if she's shit at her job.
>>29657115Instead of St George and the dragonMG Georgina and the dragon dildo
>>29657153A revote? Well...I guess I could have one at the start of the next thread?>>29657156Definitely not. Oriko's Cult is anti-Pinky. Wendy and Amber's Church of the Golden Land is pro-Pinky.IC, Chiaki doesn't know that yet.>>29657162She did get absorbed, yes. But she isn't the one named Dildoes.>>29657166There would definitely be opportunity to, yes!Cult arc will be soon, hahaha!>>29657169I would agree, definitely Dildoes.>>29657194Hanegawa MidoriDahlia MarigoldKirishima RuriChitose YumaThat's what I can remember!>>29657211Hahaha!
>>29657300Yeah, I didn't realize how long ago it was.
>>29657300To be fair, casual maths suggests we're about 900 years old.
>>29657256No, we wiped out 50-100 people with Kharn, Murderface, and Malal. There were still a bunch more. And we no longer have Kharn and Malal, and Chiaki might not be as stupidly deadly as Murderface given she's piloted by anon now. If some Officios united against us, it might be more than we can handle.
>>29657315>MarigoldWelp we know why green hair is the danger thenEver think about doing a Malal based spinoff before she met Kharn?
>>29657339>Chiaki might not be as stupidly deadlyThe loss of Time Stop says she's not.The Golden Weapons fill the gap somewhat, but even so, there's a lot of girls who are also Golden Weapon deadly AND can still use their Magic Wish Powers on top.
>>29657339>Chiaki might not be as stupidly deadly as Murderface given she's piloted by anon now.And our Timestop isn't as good as Murderface's.Murderface could go into Timestop for days at a time, we can only do it for a few minutes (when it even works at all), and it has some kind of long cooldown after each use now when it didn't before.
>>29657315>A revote? Well...I guess I could have one at the start of the next thread?Sounds like a clusterfuck.Who's Marigold?
>>29657376Previous warmaster of the 8thCrazy bitch who survived Wendy, Mary Sue and Annie Springfield triple teaming her
>>29657376Former warmaster of the 8th, trained Wendy and the rest. Based on Yuuka Kazami, and she retired for some reason.
>>29657376I don't think we need a revote, guys.It's not like we're actually answering face to face. The response will, I'm sure, be diplomatically reworded by Kyoko, Sayaka, Mami and Kyubey.
>>29657376former warmaster of the 8th current wife of the 7th Warmaster personally trained Wendy and the Springfield sisters
>>29657399>Crazy bitch who survived Wendy, Mary Sue and Annie Springfield triple teaming herIs that from a writeup?
>>29657315The Ultimate Sadistic Creature Dahlia vs. The Ultimate Sexcretary Callidus Midorin.Maximum danger.
>>29657423Not in a sexual way, mind.
>>29657405>Sayaka>diplomatically rewording anythingYeah, no. Have Midori instead of her.
>>29657423Part of the wendy cooldown ones yeahIt was about her history with the Springfield sisters and how they got where they dod
>>29657284Probably. I'm pretty sure that even if she doesn't die in the attempt, she's going to commit suicide afterwards. My money is on a soul gem suicide bombing.If it's any consolation, I don't see how we could have talked her down from that. If we approve her transfer, she kills him. If we flatly deny her transfer, she still probably kills him. If we try to throw her in the silent room she hits her despair limit break and witches out in our office. I don't think /tg/ had enough ranks of Diplomacy or Paragon points to select any dialog option that doesn't lead to her dying somehow.
>>29657450Isn't Midori a giant M? We might never get her back if that happens.
>>29657455Then no interest!
>>29657405You have far too much optimism that a good result will happen, instead of Chiaki sending off a hurriedly and vehemently worded email.
>>29657296Could've sworn it was more still 100MGs plus their warmaster with 3 from our officiois still damn impressive
>>29657457fair point, well made.The rest of the Warmaster Staff is basically there to stop us AND Sayaka fucking everything up, isn't it?
>>29657423>he doesn't read the writeupsFuckin' casuals.
>>29657255They're quite powerful, but very specialized. The Ninth will probably come out on top if it came to a full-out war.Not really that many Officios as Murderface. Walpurgisnacht was a global event, and all the Officios had to cooperate to stop it.No Officio's that pissed at the Ninth enough to unite against them, not right now at least! >>29657284Hahaha! I wouldn't say so!>>29657287Hahaha!>>29657361Another Malal flashback, you mean?
>>29657484I have faith in Mami.Though, if we do just send back a one word response of "Dildoes", I demand it be written on finest parchment and lluminated by pervy monks, at least.
>>29657287>>29657511It's Kumatora isn't it? Fucking BRS hack
>>29657481>implying that there's much on this Gay Earth that could possibly sucessfully stop us from getting Midorin back.
Hang on a fucking minute.Did QB not revise his hiring practices in direct response to contracting Mami?That was THIRTY YEARS ago?
>>29657488>Could've sworn it was more still 100MGThat's only because some of the Third's Magical Girls refused the order to stand down and went rogue. This was after the big fight with Ahriman, and they were hunted down by the entirety of the Ninth's increased numbers.And if you'll look at our current Officio corporate roster, 2 of the 3 MG's who did that are gone, and the last one has been drastically reduced in capability.That's like saying that just because the Sarduakar at their height were equal to a Ginaz Tenth Level Swordmaster and a Bene Gesserit Adept, that they can still wipe the floor with the Fremen, when we're talking about the Sarduakar during the reign of Shaddam IV.
>>29657575>Did QB not revise his hiring practices in direct response to contracting Mami?Source?
>>29657472>I don't think /tg/ had enough ranks of Diplomacy or Paragon points to select any dialog option that doesn't lead to her dying somehow.Then Decu has done his job, and you are now definately paranoid enough to ride the Murderface Experience.
>>29657511Decu, does "Hahaha!" mean suffering on the Moon?
>>29657587It was... One of the flashback threads, which we were told from his perspective. It was when "Girl A" blew the crap out of him, and Yuma got contracted.
>>29657511I don't know so much as a flashback but more an extended sidequest where we played some of her early life contracting until maybe just before she went to Varrigan CitySince she seems to have done a lot that wouldn't really be coverable in a flashback
>>29657575>Mami is at least 45 years old
>>29657630Who is this princess?
>>29657639What's going on here?
>>29657639I'd still hit it, nya.
>>29657639where's this from?
>>29657672>"I've seen enough hentais to know where this is going."
>>29657657There are tentaclesAnd a japanese animu girlWhat do you think?
>>29657639Don't worry! Chiaki is at least 900!
>>29657677That's because you are a slut.
>>29657618I'm trying to track this down, but suptg is being slow as hell for me. Dunno if it's my connection or the server. Someone else may have more luck.
>>29657700Stop being so mean.
>>29657579To be fair, the ninth has still got some absolutely incredible talent.And to be honest, I'm not sure that Chiaki is any less powerful with a Golden Weapon than with Timestop. Just differently powerful. Timestop in is just too abusable in /tg/s hands, but as compensation, I think we're actually probably more powerful in out and out combat.
>>29657639>>29657682This aired a few seasons ago. Gen'ei something something. Il Sole Penetra la Illusioni. It had a weirdo Italian subtitle
>>29657707Those wriggly wpthongs grabbing her that are long semi tendril like manipulators
>>29657734>sole penetraSee? It can't be tentacles. Single penetration.
>>29657760>implying that they're not going to penetrate her very soul
>>29657672A girl goes witch. Thing is, that girl wasn't even a meguca in that setting. Neither were most of the people the monsters come from.Sauce is Gen'ei something.
>>29657760Guess it wouldn't interest you then.
>>29657702Nope suptg is being shit for me tooProbably the site dying again under the strain
Arright, it's that time again where I pick up questions for Decu.I don't see any outstanding ones, though, so.I don't know what the deal with Mami and the Incubator policy revision is either, I think maybe Decu is just tired.
>>29657758I'm talking about the reaction image girl saying she hates me.
>>29657657Totooria Helmold from Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland.
>>29657830Why is Wendy such a selfish bitch?
>>29657732>ninth has still got some absolutely incredible talent.But only 2 that meet the Second's standards.If we win against the Second, it will only be because we drowned them with our numbers.And it would leave us in a sorry enough state that the Tenth might come after us.
>>29657153>warI wouldn't be worried at all about this. Anyone who would be stupid enough to start a war over a transfer wouldn't last as long as they did.
>>29657830Does this mean we're getting another 2nd officio writeup?
>>29657785Only watched like the first two episodes. Need to go back and watch the rest. Basically, negative emotions turn people into monsters (like witching out) and magical girls go out and kill them. Once the monster is defeated, the person dies and is written out of existence and only the magical girl remembers them.
>>29657831Ah shit, didn't realise I linked the wrong post originallyI think it was from one of the games carpet fulgur translated your picture
>>29657830Wouldn't be the first time something is retconned. I say to just go with the newest answer and leave the older as neat trivia that got overruled.
>>29657854Why is Chiaki?>>29657875Yeah, I'll get started on those probably tonight, for reals. I've put it off for like six months now, but writing the letter to Kyouko and Chiaki was really fun.
>>29657863It's not the transfer, it's Chiaki being an insufferable bitch, and the still simmering hatred of the Ninth due to the Ninth causing the death of an entire Templar squad of the Second.
>>29657862Which tells me that they have a very peculiar set of standards.
>>29657911>Why is Chiaki?Touche.
>>29657911>Yeah, I'll get started on those probably tonight, for realsHaaaaah.
>>29657862They're exclusive witch-hunters. They do nothing else. That takes different people.
>>29657828>>29657702>>29657618>>29657587Found it. Thread 62.>Each Incubator has their own method of establishing a contract, each with his own unique twist to the process.>Some choose to approach their prospect through a dream, passing themselves off as an otherwordly being prone to fits of supreme generosity.>Others choose to follow the media's contemporary portrayal of fictional magical girls, acting like the ridiculous chirping blobs of fur that defecate sugary treats and gemstones(these Incubators you have long since chosen to cut yourself off from, and despite their attempts to reestablish contact, you have considered them dead to you).>A few - thankfully - choose to play up the Faustian Deal pastiche to the hilt, promising disenfranchised young women the justice - the power - that they deserve in order to take revenge on whoever they believe wronged them, in exchange for their souls. This was the approach you'd started out with, and for a while you thought it was a convenient way of going about things.>After all, there was nothing like making it known to the prospect that everything was downhill from then on - that they would have one last chance to do something significant with their pointless, worthless lives. You offered them a beautiful, meaningful death, instead of the slow, ignoble decay that they were currently on.>100% chance of establishing a contract, sure, and you didn't much mind that their life expectancies never went on longer than a week or so before they expired. As long as they gave the output you expected, you thought little else of them other than expendable. Walking biological wreckage.>That all changed when you established a contract with Mami Tomoe.So Mami is at least forty fucking years old.
>>29657914They're unlikely to choose to go to war just because Chiaki is a bit glib.
>>29657911There seem to be some pretty obvious errors in those letters, might be just me though.
>>29657908Yeah, pretty much. I'll try and get a definitive answer from him later.
>>29657950So, it got retconned. I guess that's that.
>>29657950Well, Meguca ARE dead corpses only made to move because of their soul gem magic. They ARE liches. Looking like the age at which they contracted shouldn't suprise you.
>>29657934shut upi mean it this time>>29657961Yeah he didn't edit them and I was still half-asleep when I wrote them because they needed to be done RIGHT NOW with no prior warning, sorry about that.
>>29657973Or there are TEMPORAL SHENANIGANS occurring.
>>29657990They're not actually dead, they've got brain activity and everything.It's just that brain activity is simply a mirror of what's happening in their soul gem.
>>29657973>>29657990I don't see any problem with Mami being forty?
>>29657914Even in that case it would take more then that. At most we might get some squad to squad fights that don't go anywhere.Just given the leaders personality I think it's unlikely they will do much. Also they have sent letters before which had to be denied and nothing has happened. So form the looks of it they are just trying to guilt us into doing it.
>>29658007>Chaiki has to go back in time to cause the car accident that killed Mami's parents>accidentally steps on a cockroach!>Midori now rules the future with an iron ramenbutt!
>>29657990But Mami doesn't look like the age she was when she contracted. She contracted in a car accident when she was, like, eight.
>>29658016They're liches. Or philosophical zombies. They dead for metaphysical matters.
>>29657990Except that magical girls age in MGNQ. Just go with the newer answer and chalk it up as a retcon and move on.
>>29658003Actually, do you know which Officio's have Incubators that have decided to play at being Magical Girl familiars from TV, and that are considered to be dead to QB?
>>29658037They're not philosophical zombies because we know MGs are conscious.
>>29658027"It...It isn't soft anymore?NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
>>29658022They probably figure it's worth a shot now that there's a new Warmaster.Hell, weren't we involved in that mess? Oh shit, it was us, wasn't it? We accidently'd a squad of Templars.
>>29658028Magic, most likely.
>>29658027If Midori had an iron butt it would take away all the appeal. This is truly the worst future.>>29658039Arguably the Seventh, arguably the, I believe, Eighteenth and Nineteenth. Those are the only ones I know for sure.
>>29658038Or QB, who has both previously and in that very instance, expressed a considerable fondness for Mami Tomoe, has done something with his superscience.
>>29657950A lot of the Koobee Quest stuff has been retconned by now. That passage would also go against the following about the 'Gift of Truth' from Malal Quest:>Yeah. Yeah, everyone knows that. Any Incubator makes it a point to mention it when they present the contract, and it's always in big, bold print.Earlier in Koobee Quest it also mentioned that Vanus and Venenums had been "eliminated", which we have since learned is definitely not the case, especially with the Thirteenth.
>>29658038Well, they age. But slowly?I think the soul gem resists changes to the base template?
