The last thing you remember is the look of fear in your friend's eyes at lunch. The first thing you remember is reading over the result of a week's worth of investigations.Twitter: https://twitter.com/Gideon020Rules: http://pastebin.com/BgiTzjeECharacter Sheet and Inventory: http://pastebin.com/higzqSf1Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31604462/Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Yandere%20QuestYour name is Alice Lindon, a prototype Infiltration/Assassination Android who has just spent the last week both in and out of various disguises finding out about Hana Kanzaki and the Kanzaki Mega-Conglomerate, Kanzaki Pacific Holdings.Through it all, you've discovered several key details.One: There were ripples running through the city, ripples that are still being felt, because of Kanzaki. People have 'moved' or vanished, and anything negative has been excised from media and many, many blogs. You got lucky that they never got to the archives.Two: Kanzaki has been clearly abusing their power and international influence to do all of this. They're clearly violating all UN regulations in regards to corporate activities and doing so in a way that the UN Watchdogs won't notice.Three: You are being followed. You've noticed them a few times. Cars, and people, in deliberate tailing movements. Normal people, and even trained agents wouldn't have noticed, but you have the advantage of not being human.You know you'll have to deal with these tails soon enough and the sooner you do so, the better.You can't bring your heavier weaponry, and even your gas blades would be too risky. You slip your silenced pistol into a concealed holster and prepare for the day.
1d100 for general voting, best roll out of five is chosen.Combat is 1d100 with modifiers for how many shots you fire in combat. Best out of three roll is chosen.Burst Fire and Full-Auto Fire attacks can be done multiple times in one action, but each attack after the first incurs a cumulative -10 penalty.Body armour subtracts from total damage done per attack.You can target multiple enemies in a single action. Roll 1d100+modifier for each target. Specify for each roll the target and the attack used.Takedowns and Executions are 1d100-20 and a short paragraph describing the Takedown or Execution. Best out of three rolls is chosen, but I will pick which action description looks the best to me.Reactor Charges are your healing mechanic. Expend a Reactor charge and roll 12d6. Reactor Charges stack, and are regained through Takedowns and Executions.Stability is a measure of your Yandere psychological state. If you lose a certain amount, known as the Snap Limit, you Snap and enter a state of emotional hysteria and brief psychosis. Lose all your Stability, and you go Berserk, and will perform a violent action, often against your love interest.Relationship is how strong your relationship with Ian Carter is. You have to keep your relationship as high as possible. If you drive the relationship down into negative numbers, Ian will reject you, and you will proceed to murder him and commit suicide.Good luck.
>>31711980>even your gas blades would be too risky.FUCK!
Though I never play I love reading this Quest.
>>31711993We can hold a ceramic butterfly knife in a storage compartment in our arm. Can we use that instead of gas blades?
You are on the streets of Old City, observing through your sensors one of your eight identified tails, a man.You know that there are five more in close proximity, but they aren't in your visual field of view.You should probably try to get visual confirmation, but that risks tipping off your main tail.At the same time, grabbing the main tail runs the risk of being made by the others.Ignoring them however, will only cause you to play into their hands. They've been tailing you for a week, so they clearly have had time to set up a trap.Damned if you do, damned if you don't...>Grab the main tail.>ID the support tails.>Let them spring their trap.
>>31712428Yes, it is usable as a weapon. Just don't lose it.
>>31712429>Grab the main tail.
>>31712429>Grab the main tail.Spring the trap. They might have had the perfect trap, but they put one thing in that makes the trap worthless.A yandere robot assassin worried for her loved one.
>>31712429>Grab the main tail.Gut his tail off.
>>31712455Wait wasn't that the murder weapon ? If we get caught using that we could get blamed for the murder.
>>31712677No, it was dropped when you spooked the real killer. It hasn't been used in a murder yet.
>>31712677And if we don't, the murder will get caught with more murder she didn't even do! HAH!
>>31712727from what I'm guessing, the Murderer is a heavily modified cyborg Hana that might or might not be a Golem killer, so I doubt she's going to get "caught".
>Grab the main tail.You decide to screw up their plans and get some information at the same time. You make a turn and double back, and just as you predicted, the tail neatly turns back and moves to a non-suspicious position.You can't do this in public, but you should be able to lure him somewhere more isolated.>Roll 1d100+30, best roll out of three.

>>31712953btw Gideon, is your mom alright or should we keep praying for her?
>>31713473She's fine, it was just an appointment with a specialist. But thank you.
>Roll: 69 + 30You smile as you plan out a route and begin walking it casually, letting the tail follow you through the streets as you head towards your ambush site, an abandoned playground. Lots of cover, plenty of places to hide.You head into the playground and start tracing communications and immediately get contact, "...into the playground, have lost visual on her."You appear and sit down at some swings, kicking your feet lightly as you listen to the tail, "Wait, I have her, she's on the swings, permission to commence snatch? Understood, snatching now."You check your systems.Health: 200/200Armour: 70And then you check your weapon:Beretta 97:.45ACPAmmo Status: 15 - 15Ammo Loaded: StandardDamage: 3d6ROF: 6Spare Ammo: 8 Magazines, Standard-Mods:--Illuminated Sights: +5 to Rolls--Standard Issue Suppressor: Shooting counts as Infiltration Action.You're as ready as you can be. Now then, how to deal with the tail...>Let him grab you.>Counter-attack.>Draw the gun on him.
>>31713605>Let him grab you.just try and move us
>>31713605Do we have our gun in hidden compartments like the ceramic knife is hidden or is it on our person like a human carries guns?
>>31713605>Let him grab you.I kind of want to know where they will take us. Probably not the best idea though.
>>31713605>Let him grab you.
>>31713758In a holster.
>>31713880Would it be possible to stash it in a hidden compartment, then?They're going to take the thing when they grab us...
>>31713605>>Let him grab you.Onnichan, where are you taking me?
>>31713901It would take too long to stash the gun, but you still have the knife.
>>31713605just to be sure, we are physically stronger then them right?
>>31713978Yup, even Elise, the weakest of the four Golems, could fold a man in half.
>>31714053I thought that the pilot one had the weakest frame?
>Let Him Grab You.You want answers, and while torturing and killing a man would be...cathartic after having to deal with a week of classes with that bitch Midori all but whoring herself to Ian, you decide to see where this rabbit hole takes you.You swing casually for a few minutes, letting the action relax you, before suddenly you feel gloved hands grab you and you struggle, restraining your strength so you don't kill him with a punch or kick in the wrong place.You feel an injector go into your neck and you pretend to relax as you detect a powerful tranquiliser being injected into you."I have the target, bring the van around."You listen as you are roughly searched, "The fuck? Subject was armed. Forty-Five pistol."You tap the communications again, "Understood, make sure she has no other weaponry."You feel his hands search you quite professionally, and invasively, before turning up nothing."She's clean.""Roger that, the van is now parked and ready to pick you up.""Right." The tail picks you up and grunts, "Fuck me, this bitch is heavy."You make a note to make his death extra-painful as you are carried to a waiting van, placed inside and tied up.The vehicle begins travelling and you begin tapping the van's GPS unit.Roll 1d100+30, best roll out of five.
>>31714390Oops, it was supposed to be:>Roll 1d100, best roll out of five.
Rolled 23>>31714442and the last one
>>31714479>tNFpLh4WGK8I assume we know near enough exactly were we are then
>Roll: 95You easily tap the GPS system and find that you're currently heading out of the city, towards an unmarked location on the GPS' route plotting.You must be heading to a covert facility, this must be where they took the people who vanished, who dug too far into this.The thought of Ian dating a daughter of this family makes your synthetic blood register higher temperatures before you calm down.You are hauled up as the van comes to a stop and a voice says, "Carry her inside, we'll wake her up inside when we're ready to begin questioning."You allow yourself to be carried inside, all the while using passive imaging systems to record everything about the facility.It's a small, compact location, probably purpose built for this place, but you pick out various rooms that could be anything from barracks to cells to armories and more.Finally, you are strapped down in a room and injected again, this time with a drug to 'wake you up' but you were never asleep.As they leave the room to let you recover, your eyes snap open and you take in the chair you're strapped down to.>Keep waiting, see what happens.>Escape.
>>31715208>Keep waiting. see what happenstime for reverse interrogation
>>31715208>Keep waiting, see what happens.Make sure though that we are able to get loose and out quickly.
>>31715208>Keep waiting, see what happens.
>>31715208>Keep waiting, see what happens.I'm curious who will show up.
>>31715208>Keep waiting, see what happens.Wait for one of them to arrive, knock him out and then explore the place disguised as him.
>>31715208>Keep waiting, see what happensSo they're going to interrogate us, eh? This seems manageable, and escaping now would give away our cover unless we pull off something amazing (which may be possible given the fact that we are covert golem.) They obviously aren't trying to kill us or anything (yet.)By the way Gideon, I've noticed that you said that this was going to happen on Friday (on Twitter), but isn't it Saturday for you (I think you said in one of the threads that you lived in eastern Australia or something.) Was that a mistake, or was there a delay, or am I just misunderstanding things...
>>31715208keep waiting, we don't risk anything as they were planning for an human kidnappee
>>31715414There was an unavoidable delay and I forgot to update teh Twitter.Hell, I was going to delay today because I suddenly realised in an IRC that I was being a troll.
>>31715496That's cool. It was the second time, so I thought that maybe I was misreading things like an idiot or something. I don't think anyone really minds delays as long as they aren't crazy or anything.
I don't know why I did it either. I mean, the IRC I'm on right now, I'm normal, I'm polite, same with the Power Armour one.But this other one, I just let off a deliberately hostile tone.
>>31715208>Escape.I don't like this very much.
>>31715642you can make up for it by posting the next post~
>>31715719We've come this far, lets see what they want to know
>>31715642the net can bring out the worst in us.
>>31715971besides, if this interrogation goes south, we can just break our restraints and snap their necks.
>Keep waiting, see what happens.You make yourself look around in confusion, well, fake confusion, confident in your acting skills making you look like a scared teenage girl.As you 'struggle' and gain data on the strength of the restraints, the door opens to reveal a man in a white medical uniform, "Ah, so this is the newest patient is it?"He picks up a syringe, "Now, physical torture rarely gets any good results, so I'm just going to ask you some questions while using this special medicine to ensure you don't lie to me. Do you understand?">Yes>Go fuck yourself.
>>31716087Bust out, kick all their asses, interrogate them with their own special medicine.
>>31716087>Go fuck yourselfTelling him to go fuck himself doesn't seem like what a scared teen would do, but just saying yes would maybe clue him onto the fact that we're non-human and that medicine ain't gonna do shit.
>>31716087> yes>> fake tears
>>31716087>W-where am I?! What am I doing here!?seems a lot more natural
>>31716087>Yesbut>Go fuck yourself.anyway.
>>31716150That actually seems like a good idea if things head south. This facility probably has a bunch of that and other useful things to take when we head out, especially considering that this place was (presumably) made for interrogations and other covert operations. Plus, it would be really useful in case we need to deal with some of the girls who don't watch themselves around our Ian.
>>31716087Can we collect the serum? that could be useful to have around.
>>31716087What happens to stuff that they inject into us? Is it just getting broken down by nanobots in the skin? Any way to keep that from happening? Could we do something like have it stay in a little bubble in the injection site and then suck it back out later with a new syringe?
>>31716278You can, if you can recover it intact. Updating now.
>>31716196I support this.Cry crocodile tears, act scared, ask for Ian.We can get some information out of them.
>>31716316You can preserve chemicals for later recovery.
>>31716318I'm guessing that so long as we don't get shot up too bad, or at least not shot in the injection site, we good?
>>31716196>>31716334Together, acting Like the scared confused little girl. We can probe for info by the questions they ask. Then break out and kick their asses.
>>31716349So we now have the drugs needed to make somebody go unconscious, wake them up when needed, and make them tell the truth during interrogations? [potential yan intensifies]
>>31716474Yay, we go agent Romanov!
>"W-where am I?! What am I doing here!?">Fake tearsAs you shout those words, you release the necessary saline to tear up like you really are a scared and angry teenager.The doctor 'tsk's and readies the syringe, "Such a rude girl. No matter. 2ccs into an artery, that should be sufficient to get you to loosen your tongue."There is the sensation of a pinprick and you feel the liquid being injected. Your systems analyse it and bring up a match.DNi-90a, a powerful neurological modifier that compels truthful and honest speech. You isolate the drug as the doctor turns, "She's been drugged and is ready for questioning."A man walks in and without any preamble demands, "Why are you investigating Hana Kanzaki?">Tell the truth.>Tell a lie.
>>31716515>Tell a lie.The truth is that it's because she was Ian's ex. We don't want them getting involved with Ian at all.So lie.
>>31716515What would the truth be? Mentioning the zombie? It would be interesting to see how they react to it.
>>31716576The truth would be mentioning that you heard talk of Hana Kanzaki.
>>31716515>Tell a lie.i am sure they will pick up on this, and when they do, we bust out and wreck their shit.
>>31716515Can we sort of look pained as we lie? As if it's a struggle for us?
>>31716515>Tell a lie"I was just curious about my boyfriend's ex.">>31716573they've been following for about a week, so I'm pretty sure they already know that we are involved with Ian>>31716593you mean snitch on our homies? no way, man, snitches get stitches.
>>31716515Would we get the +30 when lying to them? Or do we not roll to make them believe us at all?
>>31716515>>Tell a lie.You are doing a goddam book report on this famous missing person.
>>31716668she's not missing. she's legally dead.
>>31716515>>Tell a lie.We want to see what Ian liked
>>31716714Ok, famous dead person, you want to cherish this celebrity, she was your personal hero or some shit.
>>31716757we're trying to come off as a normal high school student at the moment, not some lunatic who is obsessed with a convicted felon who tried to kill her current boyfriend
>Tell a lie"I was curious. I heard my boyfriend talking about his ex and I wanted to know what sort of girl she was." Your face flickers in a deliberate show of pain, as if you were trying not to say that.The suited man's face is impassive, "And when you discovered she was of the Kanzaki family?" Right, they know that you've found her out, so you can work with that."Well, I also heard about the murders, and then they found that knife that looks just like the one she used when she went crazy-"Your head is knocked to the side by a powerful slap, but it does nothing to you physically or mentally as the man growls, "You will not speak ill of the dead.">Get pissed off>Probe>Ask a question.
>>31717294>Probe"Why do you care? She was disowned for what she did."
>>31717294>Getting mad that their truth serum makes someone tell the truth about bitch being crazy.
>>31717294"All I'm doing is answering your questions. Why are getting at me?"
>>31717294>you injected me with a truth serum, I couldn't hold that opinion back in the context of answering your question! Your face is mildly off putting and your eyes are spaced asymetrically jackass!See, I couldn't even use hyperboyle to insult you
>>31717549I want to do this just to see his reaction.
>>31717549This sounds really funny, especially since he knows everything we're saying is true (even if it isn't.) +1 vote
Just wondering Gideon, how many individuals did we see/sense as we were being brought into this facility, and is the guy interrogating us different from the guy who kidnapped us.
>Probe>Get Angry"You injected me with a truth serum, I couldn't hold that opinion back in the context of answering your question! Your face is mildly off putting and your eyes are spaced asymetrically, jackass!"The man's eyes bug out at the venom in your voice and he looks like he's about to strike you again, when a suited woman comes in, "Take five."The man visibly restrains himself and as he leaves, you easily catch him glancing at his face in a mirror before the door closes."Sorry about Takeshi, he's doesn't quite get how things work here," the woman explains as she lights a cigar, "But I do. So listen, cooperate and you'll get paid, and you won't have to worry about-"The lights go out, "What the fuck? Get the emergency lighting on, now!"You suddenly hear someone shout, "They're not working!"Your eyes switch into night-vision modes. Low-light enhancement is useless so you switch to Thermal/Ultraviolet just in time to see it enter and tear the woman's head off.It's a humanoid figure, and you see strange waving lines behind it, coming from the small of it's back.It tears off your restraints and speaks in a harsh, electronic voice, "Come on!">"Who are you?">Refuse to go.>Try to escape by yourself.
>>31717847>>"Who are you?"Finally things are getting interesting
>>31717847curses, I had the whole break out thing planned out and everything.>"Who are you?"
>>31717847The fuck?Also, I want my fucking gun. Where's our gun?
>>31717847>"Who are you?"another sister?
>>31717847> Who are you ?
>>31717986impossible, we've met all of them
>>31717847Who are you?You couldn't have waited ten minutes? I had them where I wanted them, they were about to give everything up.>take the head, could have parts to download info from.
>>31718010Except the one held hostage by THAT MAN.
>>31718055that sister has no body
>>31717847A robot? Can't be from eggnog, or it'd be trying to kill us, so I say we go for it. Besides, if it knows where we are in this secret facility, it either has some powerful connections who want to keep us safe, or has access to Elise. In either case, this seems good.
>>31718080maybe she does now? or this could be an attempt someone else is trying to make their own version of golems?
>>31717847"Give me a gun, I want payback."I wonder if we can use this opportunity to disguise ourselves and wreck the place. We still have optical camo.
hangon, >>31717847>strange waving lines behind it, coming from the small of it's backare those the special wires that can cut all sorts of stuff up?
>>31718551>>31718301>>31718016Hold a tic,>strange waving lines behind it, coming from the small of it's backWe got busted out by Slenderman. Ooh shit.

And the level of control...'Kitsune' just became a very serious threat in your head, and you make a note to try and find out just what sort person you're walking behind as the strange, possibly insane person cuts open a door and holds up a hand, "Wait here."They vanish into what appears to be a laboratory, leaving you alone in the darkened hallway.You look around, and spot no-one.>Try to leave.>Wait here.>Follow the Kitsune

>>31718902>no silencerMuh silencer...
>>31718902>Follow the KitsuneReally this person... She's most likely trying to make a hole for us to leave. At least, that be the best guess. Even then, if it isn't, I would like to find out what she's after in this place.
>>31718902Open up some vents, hack a terminal for a map(unless that's also out of power), examine the door to determine just how high-class these guys arehopefully we can leave on our own merry way with information to boot.
>>31718902>>Wait here.Stand within the doorway, keep a lookout.
>>31718902Follow Kitsune such that we won't be spotted by her and are out of the range of any possible attackers. We need to know what we're really dealing with...
>>31719384This.I'm guessing this is why Elise was so scared.
This is good. The Kanzaki's will think that she was behind us breaking out. I was worried about how we could murder/interrogate our way out and not have them send more people after us.
>Follow KitsuneYou engage your cloak and follow after Kitsune, hearing noises from further inside the laboratory.Suddenly a container flies past your head and smashes into a table.You press forward, listening to the noise when you spot a nanowhip cut through a computer as Kitsune shouts, "It's not fucking here!"They slice open another secured locker, nanowhips lashing violently and tear into it, clearly searching for something.Finally, they pause and halt their search, "Fuck, it's not here."They turn, clearly intended on heading back to you.>Roll 1d100+60, best roll out of three.

>Roll: 87 + 60You quickly run back to where Kitsune left you originally and disengage your cloak.Thankfully, they didn't see you or detect your optical illusion as the Kitsune looks at you, "Listen, the entrance is just down that hallway, just follow the road and you'll be at the highway. You can catch a public bus from there."With that said, Kitsune vanishes into the depths of the facility.Leaving you to make a choice.>Follow Kitsune>Leave the facility.

>Follow KitsuneYou turn and walk back in, you need to know just what is with this person, this 'Kitsune', and following them isn't as hard as one might think.From the damage, you manage to find out where the Kitsune is heading.And it appears to be a morgue. You frown and walk into the morgue to find the massive storage area, steam flowing out in a wave of cold.You hear noises inside and carefully move through the gap in the door to find Kitsune standing in front of cryo-preservation unit.They run a hand down the surface of the unit and you see a woman's face behind the glass.What the hell is going on?Then you hear a noise and jerk back as the Kitsune turns, "You bastards...not enough that you had to take my mother...you make her your little science project. I'll destroy you, destroy you all."You engage your cloak as the Kitsune slices open the door and stalks out.You walk into the refrigerated area, and stand there, staring at the face of the unknown woman.(And that's Part 30, Part 31 will be up Monday 7:00AM, GMT+10! Next time, investigating the facility further.)
>>31721235Thanks for writing! See you in two days!.....Right?
>>31721235Thanks for the thread, Gideon! Don't be long!
>>31721235well this is awkward. We're the damsel saved by the edgy protagonist out for revenge, who normally would turn into a love interest.
