It’s in a much nicer part of town, down towards the waters, where Queens begins to drain away into Brooklyn. The house itself is a squat little thing, probably two to three bedrooms, its second floor looming over a small, walled-off garden. Twisting, dark green creepers lounge across one side of the building, giving you the impression that the Soames prefer a more rustic feel than most of NY is comfortable with.Making your way up the stoop, you sniff experimentally, drawing in the essence of your surroundings. The air is cleaner than you’re used to here, brighter. You can almost feel the symbiotic to-and-fro between the Soames, their neighbours, and the intermittent little bits of greenery that interrupt the greys and brick-reds of the city. You smile a little secretively. You’re actually feeling a kinda better – that walk seems to have done you some good. You feel the sun – what scraps of it the winter permits, anyhow – with greater clarity, your limbs and your pulse and the weight of your bones all seeming a little lighter. Maybe you just needed some time to yourself.>Photosynthetic Charge: 1/5The door looms up ahead of you. It’s very… purple. >Hunger Level: 1>Current Funds: $0.00>Present Time: 15:20 PM>[ ] Knock at the door.>[ ] What if you have to use your powers?

>>32329424Hey crusty.>[ ] What if you have to use your powers? Maybe you should check out the house some way before actually meeting these people. [insert specifics]Listen to the wall/door and count heat beats. we will probably have to use our scent and infrared ability's when we are inside, but we can do that when the family is not looking.Hopefully they do not dislike mutants to any great degree.
>>32329424>[ ] Knock at the door.JJ is an excellent guest. Also if he has to use his powers, most of them are good for reactionary uses.
>>32329424>>[ ] Knock at the door.
>>32329424Smell/hear around, then knock. Also come up wit an excuse why we have no fucking clothes on?Then go away and grab a jacket.
Can we call Rogue "Coma Girl" now?What music do the other group members like? I totally see Rogue loving Taylor SwiftIf JJ gets into conspiracy theories, he'd basically be superpowered Fox Mulder.If JJ gets agi lvl 5, what would be the visual change? Spidey butt?Does the Extremis rip-off fully kick in at age 18? Or when someone has finished "growing" their original power set? Cause JJ's 18 and all this shit is going on, though it could be because of him being #0Does JJ have Niemann-Pick and/or Roberts syndrome? Or did he have it in utero?Does JJ's agility help with musicianship?
>>32329523You have clothes on. You're currently wearing a zipped-up jacket over a heavily ripped hoodie and some rather battered jeans.
>>32329523>Also come up wit an excuse why we have no fucking clothes on?We have clothes. They're just ripped."I was investigating another matter whilst undercover, and an incident happened which involved my clothes becoming ripped."
>>32329424>>Current Funds: $0.00I'm having a hard time believing that we never even found a penny on the ground or something.
>>32329565Laura has all of our cash.
>>32329565ha. senses 5: the ultimate floor change hoover.
>>32329577We're walking through New York with senses 5. Given the sheer number of people, pretty sure we could find at least 5 lbs in pennies on the ground over a day. Not to mention dollar bills and whatnot.
>>32329648Yea, passive search for pennies please.Gotta use those perks from senses somehow.Also look out for nearby trash cans. Maybe something good is int there. (check with senses).
>>32329565I imagine that he's more on lookout for mutant control/creeper's thugs than coins. Still, he hasn't had senses 5 for that long, so it's not that strange he hasn't figured out the smell of coins.
>>32329701Senses 5 dude. He should see shinies miles away. literally.
>>32329672Hell, with our agility we could probably out-Jew people in the race to a $20 on the sidewalk.
>>32329725>He should see shinies miles away. literally.>literally see miles awayWe don't have Telescopic Vision.
>>32329750Probably easy to see light reflecting with our sense level, but yeah this is hyperbole. Miles away in New York? Buildings, people, etc in the way.
>>32329725Coins aren't very shiny if they're worn out.They do have a distinctive smell however.
>>32329750At 3 x-points I don't see us getting it any time soon.
>>32329648>>32329672>>32329737He would make more money doing his job than looking for money.
>>32329800We'll probably get it when either we're upgrading wings to a high level or when a situation has JJ in the air for a long time and/or looking for something while flying.
>(1/2)>[X] Listen at the door.>[X] Knock.Deciding that your privacy is more valuable than the Soames’, you lean up against the aggressively purple portal, listening in. You catch a lot of background sound – the slow, steady groan of floorboards, the minute rattling of windows, but you filter through it. Someone’s playing a radio somewhere – sounds like Paint It Black, you think. Trying to focus solely on the specific intonations of biology, you clear aside the mutterings of the house, and pick three heartbeats out of the din. Making sure that your cheap sunglasses (that should be your codename, you muse) are in place, you knock hesitantly at the door. A bundle of nerves slowly extends out through your stomach, unravelling up your intestines and diffusing, as if via osmosis, into your bloodstream, your bones, the seat of your skull. You check your shades again and cough pre-emptively, clearing your throat. Eventually, the door edges open, and a short, slightly chunky woman in her late thirties glances out up at you. She’s wearing a drab, obfuscating turtleneck and the kind of excessively long skirt a nun might wear. She has a vaguely harried look etched into the crevices of her face.
>>32329822I'm not even talking about actively looking for money. Just walking along with excessively high senses and the sheer population amount of New York.
>(2/2)“Mrs. Soames?” You venture. She nods, glancing over your shoulder momentarily. “You’re Mr. Girling?” Yes. Yes you are. That was the best you could come up with on the fly. You nod in confirmation and she slowly opens the door, letting you in. The house looks about what you expected on the inside – long corridor running up its midsection, flanked on either side by openings into larger rooms. A set of stairs lead up to a small landing up above. It’s cosy. Lots of warm colours. Nice paintings of… stuff. Sort of abstract stuff. “Could I get you anything?” She asks, rubbing her hands nervously, as if trying to wring something out of them. “Coffee? Tea?” >[ ] “Tea/Coffee would be nice, thank you.” >[ ] “Is your husband in?”>[ ] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >[ ] “How’re you holding up?”>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”
>>32329785People with improved senses don't see world like we do. I imagine someone with JJ level of senses can taste the clothes people across the street are wearing.Hell I been on some stuff that improves senses, and I could literally taste what I could normally smell, and smell taught the walls.>>32329822You know that there are people that look for money as a job? We can get bit more than minimum wage, if we look for cash.There are shit tons of dropped money everywhere.
>>32329870>>[ ] “Tea/Coffee would be nice, thank you.” >>[ ] “Is your husband in?”>[ ] “How’re you holding up?”>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”
>>32329870>[ ] “No thanks, that’s okay.”>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”
>>32329870>>[ ] “Tea/Coffee would be nice, thank you.
>>32329870>[x] “Tea would be nice, thank you.”>[x] “How’re you holding up?”anything to keep the hunger down
>>32329539If that's what gets you going, anon. This might take a while to answer. I'll get back to it.He kinda would, wouldn't he?Sure. Why not? Set sail for Spiderbooty.???Nope.A little.
>>32329870>>[ ] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >>[ ] “How’re you holding up?”>>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”
>>32329870>>[ ] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >>[ ] “Is your husband in?”>>[ ] “How’re you holding up?”>>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”Can't really drink right now unless JJ just downs it and gets down to work.
>>32329870>>[X] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >>[X] “How’re you holding up?”She is clearly concerned. We should try to reassure her that we will do all we can to solve the situation.
>>32329870>[ ] “Tea would be nice, thank you.” >[ ] “Is your husband in?”>[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”Polite but professional, make introductions.
>>32329901>Sure. Why not? Set sail for Spiderbooty.That was another "anon's" question from Twitter.I said in response to it: Twice the Luck, Twice the Butt>???The stuff Joshua made. I believe it to be an Extremis variant or rip-off.
>>32329870>[ ] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >[ ] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”We should probably do the standard check:Did you argue before the disappearance? can you tell me if she had any friends/were to find them to talk to, etc when its appropriate.
exactly how many bitches love CJverse Spidey?
>3 heartbeatsSUSPECT THE SIBLING
>>32329870>Tea: yes>>[ ] “Is your husband in?”Hopefully the husband question also prompts some dialogue establishing whether Tildie Soames, ten years old, is an only child or not.What if she's just gone invisible and is hiding in the house this whole time?
>>32330074>I found your kid>but you haven't left yet?
>>32330074If Axe Cop taught me anything, it's the only way to see invisible stuff is to be invisible. We're the best one for the job!
>Stealth build powerset>involuntarily hulks out into a cannibalistic dragon dude
>>32330219They'll never expect it!
>>32330219Don't pick on the quiet guys. They will push your shit in.
>>32330219The subconscious mind wants to run away to avoid the mean people.The subsubconscious mind wants to just kill everyone so that there are no more mean people.It totally makes sense.
>>32329882this, the tea is more for her to be doing something than for us. It'll help her relax.
>>32330264Its classical cornered animal ting. If we cant run away, we fight with the furry of thousand hamsters!Capcha: 666
>(1/2)>[X] “No thanks, that’s okay.” >[X] “How’re you holding up?”>[X] “Could I see the scene of the crime?”“No thanks.” You say it without thinking. In actuality, a nice warm drink would’ve been pretty much a godsend, but it’s out now. You can’t go back, lest you appear awkward and weird. Gotta keep going. “That’s okay.” She eyes you a little oddly, and you realize that she’s probably just now beginning to take in the strangeness of your appearance – the tears, the generally not-very-sleuthish clothing, possibly the smell. You panic a little, and desperately claw for something to say, something that’ll distract her from the weirdness in front of her. “How’re you holding up, Mrs. Soames?” You probably should’ve asked that anyway. Yeah.“Oh, I’m…” She stops rubbing her hands together, but she sort of grips at the hem of her jumper instead, knuckles whitening very slightly. Her pulse dips and quavers, stumbling over itself a little. “…I’m fine… it’s been difficult, but I’m quite alright…” You’re not sure you believe that. Suddenly you realize where exactly you are, that this is more than just a job, and you have a chance to help these people. “I think it might be best if I get started right away.” You say, softly. “Could I see the scene of the crime.” The woman fixes you will a short, wide stare, before seeming to remember something and nodding anxiously.
>(2/2)“Yes, yes, of course…” She guides you up the stairs, toward a tellingly pink door on one side of the landing. As you approach, she clears her throat and apologizes for staring earlier, commenting that – and this honestly could not make you feel more awkward – you smell a little like lilies. Placing a careful hand on the doorknob, she ushers you into the room beyond. It’s… pretty much exactly how you’d expect a young girl’s room to look. A bed sits along one wall, alongside a dresser cluttered with various photos and assorted paraphernalia. There’s a wardrobe on the other side of the room, and a desk-cum-bookshelf fully stocked with all kinds of adolescent fiction. Her schoolbag lies slumped at its feet and there’s a window on the far side of the room, overlooking their garden. “We’ve kept it exactly as it was…” She chuckles a little weirdly. Like steam venting. “The police didn’t, didn’t even want to take anything…” >[ ] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[ ] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.>[ ] Ask if Tildie had any noble friends you could talk to. >[ ] Get her out of the room so you can use your abilities [insert methodology].>[ ] Write in.

>>32330363>[ ] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.Use senses stealthily wile she is in the room.Its not like we have to get close to see/smell stuff, and picking something up and looking at it is not suspicious.
>>32330363>[ ] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[ ] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.Maybe ask her if she could make a cup of tea or something to get her out of the room so we can examine it? Or do we think JJ is more of a coffee person?
>>32330363>you smell a little like lilies. I don't remember this being in the brochure!Also, "noble friends"?
>>32330363>[ ] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[ ] Ask if Tildie had any notable friends you could talk to. >[ ] Get her out of the room so you can use your abilities [insert methodology].Smell and infrared if we still have our shades on.
>>32330418Bro there is no going back on a "no thank you". One superpower JJ lacks is time travel.
>>32330363>you smell a little like liliesI had no idea that JJ browsed the /u/seriously, tho. is it a side effect of photo 2?Anyway,>[x] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[x] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.

>[X] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[X] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.>[X] Get her out of the room so you can use your abilities [insert methodology].How're you guys getting her out of the room?
>you smell a little like liliesI'm okay with this

>>32330524I didn't vote for kicking her out but>ask if that offer of tea is available, whatever she's got is fine
>>32330524Ask her to go make herself a cup of tea while you search.also: is the lily smell a permanent fixture now or will it only come up when we've been in the sunlight?
>>32330524With a flood of spaghetti.Okay. "Is anyone else home?"We should try and get her to bring one of em here I guess.
>>32329939>I believe it to be an Extremis variant or rip-off.Ouch.Similar reaction, dissimilar results, JJ's is more evolvy.
>>32330524Thank her for her politeness but kindly ask her to leave so we can work undistracted
>>32330440That was an excuse to get her out of the room. Just asking if she could get out while he looks around doesn't give her anything to distract herself with.
>>32330574That's why I said variant or ripoff.
>>32330576This. Hopefully it's enough
What if it's Creeperwhat if Jack is people
>>32330524Ah one more thing.>"How many people are currently residing in this house?"
>>32330607>what if Jack is peopleI've been saying that it was since the shipping containers happened.
>>32330607I thought it was confirmed that Jack is people?
>>32330638confirmed by what?
>>32330607Jack is partially JJ, I would not be surprized if jack was harvested from specially treated mutant livers/brains though.
>>32330655The mousy guy saying a jack ingredient/source has been found and it was JJ's cocoon
>>32330524Why should we? We don't glow and shit when using senses. We can smell and see just fine, without getting on all 4 and sniffing tings as a dog.Is there any reason why we should?
On an unrelated note. How many levels in electrostatc touch would it take to take to knock out Trigger scent Laura?I'm assuming Trigger scent Laura is somewhat like warp spasm JJ. I'm guessing level 3 would be able to put her out of commission until it wears off.
>>32330704Less distractions and his sclera turn a dusky black/red when he uses thermal vision.
>>32330746Sunglasses?We have visible eyes in first place anyway.
>>32330737>getting into melee range with berserker Lauraif we get doused in that crap, I'd rather make a break for the Hudson river and just dive in.pretty sure Agility 3 gives us a speed edge
>>32330675I thought Typhon invented Jack. He sold the formula to another scientist to help fund his work. And he used a variant of Jack to build the cocoon. The liquid in the cocoon didn't actually come from JJ.
>>32330737level 1 is basically a stun gun, against an unfortified nervous system (like lauras) it will work quite well to disable her. All we need to do them is ground her and keep her pinned. This is of course if running is not an option.
>>32330524tell her to you changed your mind and would love a cuppa
>>32330737Trigger scent doesn't grant any powers to Laura though? I wonder if JJ could DB the scent away.
>>32330796>i have to stop smelling like this>so i'll light myself on fire
>>32330786Sources for all that?
>>32330773I'd rather fly away.>>32330771Maybe the shades interfere with infrared? We do want to keep the obvious mugga shit to a minimum.
>>32330737>inb4 the trigger scent is lillies
>>32330805or just spray Laura's nose with it and mess with olfactory sensesits not even fire at the level we have it at
>>32330796Using fire on a plant person.Fucking stupid.
>>32330806read the threads. >>30742976
>>32330805Better then becoming an unidentifiable pile of meat
>>32330773>Run away>Save our self so she can go on a murder spree>what happens if she accidentally kills all our friends.I do not like this planEven if taser hands doesn't work we could drop something heavy on her (like a building)
>>32330832News reports show Laura really hates flower shops and public gardens.
>>32330787No way that would work. Against a berserk Laura? Haven't you ever seen people jacked up on drugs completely ignoring tazers? Laura would be worse than that.
>>32330826rather not leave potential life or death moment up to a fly check
>>32330835>Laura's nose>that will near instantly regenerateNot to mention the Willpower check to even use fire breath.
>>32330796This is actually a viable plan. Face full of dragons breath should disable Lauras nose for a wile, right?So we disable her smell, run to the river, set ourselves on fire, and then wash off the rest.
>>32330864Someone sure is salty
>>32330839When provide sources, I give specific posts and links.Don't jus say "read the threads". I have, and I remember nothing about that other than Typhon inventing Jack as a failed supersoldier serum.
>>32330858At this point, take off has been fine. Landings have always been shit, but that's why we do it far away from the berserker.
>>32330890We're all a little salty sometimes anon. But really, it would fail and we would freeze up and then be eviscerated.
>>32330864DB is not fire right now. and it would distract her long enough to get away at the least, at best interfere with her conditioning enough to get cognitive faculties started up again
>>32330857Your nerves are one way signal relays. Overload the relay with a constant signal to contract and i dont care how much drugs you have sniffed, you are not getting off the floor because your legs are not going to listen to you.Sure, they can ignore the pain, but the contractions do not get overridden just because someone is pissed off.
>>32330806The thread where we came out of the cocoon. Typhon told Laura that he wasn't paid enough to fund his research so he had to look for other sources of income.
>>32330864Near instantly is like 5 or 10 minutes. That's plenty.Worst case scenario repeat. Also she should run in different direction, when not under influence of the scent.We should talk this over with her, and ask what snaps her out of the trigger scent.
>>32330837DB doesn't affect JJTherefore he could in a confined space use it to kill the scent with lvl 1 db without harming himself or anything he is wearing.
>>32330911Hopefully we will get some actual down time so we can trainCrusty pls
>>32330893>When provide sources, I give specific posts and links.Dude. One, I think your sentence accidentally some words. Two, reread that post. You have missed the glaringly obvious.
>>32330935I told you. No.
>>32330932>DB doesn't affect JJThat was before he was a plant man.It might have changed.
>>32330935DC 18 NO BONUSES
>>32330961>my speculation is proof!>>32330948>no because I said so!
>(1/2)>[X] Ask if there was an argument before the disappearance. >[X] Ask if the police found ANYTHING of interest.>[X] Get her out of the room.“Was there…” You strain to think of official-sounding stuff. Stuff detectives are supposed to ask. “…Was there any kind of argument before the disappearance?” Mrs. Soames shakes her head. “No… the police asked that, too.” Well, you thought as much. You’re not exactly sure how a truant preteen could’ve fixed together this whole closed room deal anyhow. Seems a little complicated for a ten-year-old. “And the police found nothing of interest?” You ask, grasping for some orientation. You’re not a forensic scientist. You have one tried and tested method for getting answers out of a place, and you can’t really pull that shit with Mrs. Soames watching your ever move. “Nothing at all?” She pauses, biting her fingers a little, and leads you over to the window, pointing down at a set of long, thin scrapings along the bottom of the windowsill. You can see that they extend all the way along the wood, both inside and out.
>>32330961no, it hasent.Its part and parcel of the power package, a bit like how cyclops eyes dont explode every time he uses his beams. Stop making shit up based on conjecture.
>>32330978I said it MIGHT have changed.
>>32330975Salt is pouring out of my screen as you speak
>>32330978>Yes because I say so!Anyone can say that.It's no because of arguments put forth many many times before.
>>32330932This is plan D.Plan A is to use our senses and spot trigger scent, then wash it off.Plan B is to run the fuck away.Plan C is to stun Laura, and return to Plan B.
>>32330989I said it may have changed. I never said it did definitely.
>(2/2)“They thought it looked like a, a sign of entry, or something, but the window was still locked from the inside, so…” So they dropped it, you guess. “Detective Watanabe”– Wait, what? Oh, right, yeah. Ms. Phantom’s contact in the NYPD, the one in her notes. –“said that it could be something, um… supernormal. Like that girl with the X-people, the one that can walk through walls.” You know the one. Shadowlion or something. Shadekitten. Whatever. Hopefully there’s no relation to this case and the X-Men haven’t added unprovoked kidnapping to their long, long list of brushes with the law. You sigh. Well, at least you seem to have a point of reference now. But you could really do with some space to flex your powers… “Thank you, Mrs Soames. If you don’t mind, I’d like to inspect the area alone.” Not entirely certain of how authoritative you sound, you quickly add: “This can be delicate work.” She starts slightly, glancing to and fro among her daughter’s possessions, and nods a little nervously. “Of course, of… of course.” She leaves, telling you to ask her if you need anything. >[ ] Wat do?
>>32330975>>32331001>JJ may project a stream of heat and unstable gasesJJ doesn't have phobia of unstable gases and heat>>32331019first use the nosethen eyes, every spectrum we can see inthen the ears
>>32331010Wash it off in broader sense of the word, probably with gasoline, or other chemical.
>>32331019>>[x] Wat do?Get the scent of the victim for future reference.
>>32331019Close door, heat scan the room, open nostrils to maximum JJ.
>>32331019Push sense to the max. Thermal vision too. Dig around, do not damage anything. Remeber to put things back where they were.
>>32331031Gases that caused the target to burst into flames last time.That could easily be enough.
>>32331019>[ ] Wat do?>Heatscan the room>Get scent on the girl
>>32331056But thats rolling AFTER using the power.Which is not the damn same thing as rolling just to use.
>>32331056why does every counter argument have "could" or "might" in it?it doesn't dissuade me from my stance at all.
>>32330912>>32330920lol. You people are obviously not well versed in x-men comics.Trigger scent doesn't wear off the second she stops smelling it. And, DBing off her face won't even stun her. You could cut off her arm and she would just gut you with her other arm. If you tear out her eyes she will claw randomly until she hits something. You people have no idea how badass Laura really is. DB will be useless.
>>32331019Examine all the things. Smells, visible spectrums, hearing, touch the grooves on the windowsill, hell, taste it if that's what it takes.
>>32330932>db without harming himself or anything he is wearing.>anything he is wearing...are you SURE about that? I don't recall anything about db immunity extending to apparel.>>32331019>>[ ] Wat do?Full run through the senses suite. Scent check, go through eyemodes, listen out for anything abnormal - hell, walk around the room, see if you can feel any abnormal drafts.Then investigate the scratches.
>>32331031The breath can ignite flammable substances like clothing.
>>32331084>Trigger scent doesn't wear off the second she stops smelling it.No, it takes a couple seconds once she's out of the scented area, but what does work is rinsing the scent away.JJ dragon breaths himself, Laura won't attack him if it destroys the scent.
>>32331095It doesn't, but lvl 1 is not fire breath, it's gas breath.

>>32331084We blind her, and run away.How long does it take for it to wear off?I assume we can dodge that shit about same as avoiding pack of rabid dogs?Also if she can't smell the scent for 10+ minutes, she should be sane enough to walk the other way.

He screams in pain and squeezes down his weapon’s trigger, the shot streaking harmlessly by. Layla shrieks behind the dumpster. Fire roars out over the kid’s chest, tearing hungrily through his jacket. You recoil instinctively, the terrible smell of scorched flesh filling your nose. Must’ve ignited something in his jacket – a lighter, by the smell of things.it ignited the thug's gun and or lighter, not his clothes. sounds like it needs a sparkanymore speculation anyone?

>>32331240its the 20's fault for bothering to type the modifier in.
>>32330890>>32330996>>32331175When did people start saying salty?
>>32331119>JJ dragon breaths himself, Laura won't attack him if it destroys the scent.Ha funny. Unless you serious. Trigger scent makes her kill everything she sees. Not just the stuff that has trigger scent on it.>>32331149Her eyes will just grow back. And so will her nose. Running away is an option. But if there is anyone else in the area she'll just murder them instead of us.As far as time limits go. The only time I actually read anything were she gets trigger scented she was in a remote area so she just ran away after running out of people to kill.
>>32331240The salt must flow, we still succeeded anyways

>>32331265I think you mean it's everybody else's fault for NOT typing it in.Or not bothering to double check they typed the right one, like mr "Rolled 1 + 6".
>>32331268>Hurrrrrrr DurrrrrrRead the comic where she goes to her cousins, the only reason she and her mom survive is because they hop in the shower together.She only kills those marked with the trigger scent, which tends to be everyone because it's in the fucking air, but could still be used in smaller doses for precise assassinations.Take your own advice and read the comics.

Theories on what happened?I'm thinking the daughter may have been taken by the X-Men or the Brotherhood.
>>32331421me thinks her X-gene activated and she freaked out.not sure if run away or invisible
>>32331180>20>successYou afford the room a cursory thermal glance, revealing a cloying world of shifting blue tones. There’s no abnormal heat spots or anything, the only traces of body heat being the vague imprints left in Mrs. Soames’ wake. Closing your eyes, you breathe in deeply, sweeping up the dust and the old hardwood floor and the creeping green outside. The place smells of everything – it’s lived in, unlike most of the scar, existing to your sense of smell as a stain upon a stain upon a stain, all mixed up and blended together and sopping this way and that. You slowly begin to separate the occasional scent from the reoccurring, the uncommon from the common, and finally, the common from the constant. Soft hair. Tangerines. Running through puddles. Sweat. Long Sundays under the bedsheets. You find Tildie. Her scent is everywhere, still peeling off the walls somewhat under a week after her disappearance. Interestingly, though? It doesn’t trail down the window. Oh, her hands are all over it, sure, but that’s not the way she left. You stop to just listen. The floorboards creak under you and the wind whispers through the gnarled, stooped tree outside. Below, the music has changed – you think it’s Spirit in the Sky now – and you can hear people talking. Mrs. Soames, and one you don’t recognize. Mr. Soames, you assume. They’re on the verge of argument. Mr. Soames doesn’t seem to think it was a good idea to leave you alone. >[ ] Go down and talk to them.>[ ] Check outside the window, just in case. >[ ] Keep listening. >[ ] Write in.

>People talking about getting the scent off of use and running away if Laura gets Trigger scented.We probably won't be the only ones in the area. So, I would rather she attack us than someone that can't dodge he attacks. What we need is a way to knock her unconscious like a few more levels in taser hands so she wont hurt anyone.Another level in agility would definitely help to.
>>32331446OH SHITI just realized!She might have that power where she just becomes completely unnoticed!

>>32331488>What we need is a way to knock her unconscious like a few more levels in taser hands so she wont hurt anyone.We could just knock her the fuck out.Strength 2 with a full-on punch could do it. Maybe get Strength 3 and do an uppercut, try to shatter the jaw.

>>32331449>>[ ] Keep listening.
>>32331490Or, you know.Just invisibility. And she's hiding in shame of being a filthy mutie.Since if she were unnoticeable we wouldn't be able to hear her either.

>>32331488Have Kevin or Noriko hold her down.Otherwise just let her chase us to nearest river, or some other self sacrifice bullshit.They wont spray you in public tho. Too much shit on their head.
>>32331531>Have Kevin or Noriko hold her down.>Kevin holding someone downTerrible idea. He might die or kill her entirely.Plus, they don't have enough strength to do so.Lucas might, using his energy power.>>32331520>Since if she were unnoticeable we wouldn't be able to hear her either.I don't think we hear her.I might be missing something from the post, though.
>>32331490In the marvel comic she had the power to make her nightmares real. In the comics her power killed her parents then she was taken in by some government organisation. Forgot which one.
>>32330791Looks like posting got borked?
>>32331531The hell were letting anyone else near her in that situation. We would have to pun her with our strength 2. That, our agility and the flexibility extrapolation means if we end up in a grapple we will probably come out on top.

So, who is the third heartbeat then?
>>32331262the prose suggest its the lighter's doing. the lighter would have burst into flames and warranted a second wave of fire if the jacket was the primary burning object.but the prose only has one burst of fire and the lighter is mentioned right after it and confirmed by smell
>>32331449>>[ ] Keep listening.>>Leave, find third heartbeat
>>32331555Kevin is the fucking juggernaut, Sure She might loose arm, or a leg, but Kevin can theoretically dick slap the juggernaut.Noriko has the tazer 9000.No strength necessary, if best she can do is scratch, before passing out/loosing claw.Idk Can Kevin do something to her claws tho?>>32331562We are not out grappling her. She gonna cut our arm off.Would you grapple Wolverine? Hell no.
>>32331658>We are not out grappling her.Super Strength and super flexibility.
>>32331658between grappling her and letting her kill someone, JJ would go in balls deep.We might need to invest a bit more in adhesion for this sort of thing, since it helps grappling.
>>32331598if this was the comics, JJ would be ethnic and dead for cheap pathos for Laura and her never ending "wahh! I am a weapon!" characterization because Marvel hates character growth (IE One More Day)

>>32331728it can't be Creeper because we wouldn't notice it.
>>32331658If we need to take down Laura in trigger scent fury, I say we use geointuitive vision, disable her limbs, put something heavy to pin down her arms before they heal and eliminate the trigger scent with DB.
>>32331621Have I lost my reading comprehension or something?Where is a third heartbeat mentioned?If there is one, it's probably JJ.
>>32331675Wolverine claws, +super strength.Seriously, you don't grapple frenzied Wolverine skill set people.She can Claw our arms off. Doesn't matter how we hold her.She can shot the blades bout ways.+ She can kick our ass without the claws.Wolverine skill set gets stronger the more they frenzy.
>>32331658>Would you grapple Wolverine?He's a short, hairy, angry Canadian (angry Canadian seems an odd combination) with pointy hand-bits and popularity meaning he wins stuff.We have super strength and flexibility, so we could probably snake around him and point his fists in his face or something. Snikt that.Laura is more difficult because she has more locations where pointy bits pop out.>>32331728Kung Fu is a super power in comics in general.

>>32329424Ideas for a new explorative or two.#1: Using Healing 3, some higher level of Claws and Subdermal, JJ can temporarily armor a weakened or broken part of his body (like an arm, leg, etc.) until he can focus mainly on healing or gets medical attention.#2: Using some collection of abilities as well as Enhanced Flexibility, he can sort of stretch his body like Eugene Tooms from The X-Files.>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeeze_%28The_X-Files%29#3: Photosynthetic Biology, Healing and Genetic Mimicry, JJ can shed his skin like Husk but the new skin is more like whatever person he's copying.

>[X] Keep listening. >[X] Third heartbeat. “...do you want us to do?” That’s Mrs. Soames. “What exactly should we be doing?”“Look, I just…” Mr. Soames (?) sighs angrily, pacing himself through whatever he’s about to say. “…I just don’t like the idea of these people running around our house. Don’t tell me you don’t understand that?” “I do, Donald!” She sounds exasperated. Tired. They both do, actually. “I do! I just – What else are we going to do?” There is a long, bitter silence. As you wait, feeling just a little oddly guilty, it occurs to you that you picked out three heartbeats on your way in. Was Tildie not an only child? There didn’t seem to be a third bedroom anywhere on the second floor. Maybe they have a pet? Focusing your ears, you dig deeper, rooting through the quiet heaving of the brick and the mortar and the old, creaking wood, and eventually pick it out again, two floors down. Not really picking anything else up off it – it’s not talking to anyone or anything. The family pet theory seems likely. Your attention is caught by Mr. Soames voice suddenly rising. “Alright, alright!” He shoves something down on a surface. A table or something. “But I’m checking on him in a minute. He could be doing anything up there.” >[ ] Action.
>>32331827no amount of karate will beat Typhonand with crack bitch powers, JJ can never be unbeatable at anything
>>32331834>I thought that already exists. We chose Subdermal instead.Subdermal kind of does that, but I meant like to armor/strengthen/fortify it more than usual.
>>32331772Would we really include our own heartbeat when paying attention for others? I think JJ would ignore noticing the fact that his own heart is functioning as usual.

Basic feral package mixed with military upgrades and the best of regeneration abilities (given how often/quickly he heals from burns, which should be damn hard to regen from anyway).

>(1/2)Hmm. Well, you guess that’s understandable. You don’t need this guy’s trust, anyhow. Just his sweet, sweet mystery money. Deciding to wait for Mr. Soames to come check on you, you take a closer look at the scrapings running along the windowsill. They look very much like something skidded out into the night, its weight or maybe its speed clipping a layer of pain and a few strands of wood from the bottom of the windowsill. It’s not nearly enough of a breach for something to gain entry through – by your estimation, you could barely slip a dollar bill under that crack, let alone a finger with which to unlock the window. Your ears perk up, and a set of heavy, laborious footsteps reach up to you from the bottom of the stairs. You guess he’s tired of waiting. You give the marks a quick sniff – smells like rusted metal, kinda, or traces of it – and straighten up, busying yourself with looking busy. Mr. Soames comes thudding through the doorway and you turn around, as if noticing him for the first time. He’s a big guy with a big flannel shirt. Thick, stormy eyebrows hover over a tired, stern face, and he holds himself with quiet confidence. “Mr. Girling.” He states. “Mr. Soames.” You state back, but quickly tone down the confrontational attitude by adding a “Nice to meet you, sir. Is something the matter?” He glances over his daughter’s belongings, as if to check that nothing’s been misplaced, and eventually relents that no, nothing is the matter.
>>32332365Crusty has said that JJ isn't a genius, but he isn't stupid either. Retains information quite well, and on Twitter he has said that JJ did well in Science classes but sub-par in Math.

>(2/2)“Good. Uh, by the by…” In a way, it’s good that he came up here. You’ve got some questions buzzing at the back of your head. “…Is it just you and your wife at home right now?” His brow sort of rears up at the question, like a huge, hairy creature rising from the fens. “It’s just Martha and myself.” He confirms. “No… no pets?” He shakes his head, eying you a little suspiciously now.

>>32332668Why would we need to block adamantine?Get some steel tube wrapped around our arms. Same ting for 90% of the stuff, and unless we meat the 4 characters who have adamantine weapons, it does exactly same ting.Seriously we have no reason to fight adamantine fuckers. Especially in close combat.
>>32332731Yeah.Just throw shit, block with things and/or try to get their limbs off.
>>32332724Not sure if subdermal will/can block adamantium, but dodging is usually the best option.
>>32332754>Not sure if subdermal will/can block adamantiumI really really doubt it.I think at level 4 it can be like Kevlar, but that's for normal knives I think.
>>32332749Yea, Getting strength, and blocking wit a gigantic rock is a ting. We can have portable wall cower.Best shield for points/bonuses.

>>32332630>17>by the skin of your teethYou can tell that he still has his reservations, but the man doesn’t seem to be able to find anything incriminatingly objectionable about you. He shrugs a little grudgingly and meanders a little back toward the door. “I don’t have a problem with that.” You clearly do though, man. Just send your wife back up, man. She’s nicer, man."Thank you." You mumble.What is it about dads that turns them into total pricks? Are all fathers like this? You trail out of the room, Mr. Soames hot on your heels, his heavy footsteps never far behind you. You can feel his cautious stare burning into your back. Gonna have to slip off your coat if he keeps this up much longer – which he clearly IS going to do. As you meet the bottom of the stairs and turn in to the corridor running along the centre of the house it becomes very clear that the man intends on sticking to you like your own shadow. >[ ] Find that heartbeat immediately. >[ ] Actually, wouldn’t that look weird?

>[X] Find that heartbeat immediately. You’ve honestly had enough of this guy. Pausing, you let your senses extend, sifting through the churning clockwork of the household. You catch Mr. Soames’ heartbeat first, strumming along beside you. Mrs. Soames is further down the hall, through one of the doors set into the side of the corridor. You can smell dark red wine and clumps of squatting, velvety furniture, so that’s probably their living room. The third heartbeat tiptoes up to you from below – right below your feet, actually. Maybe a little to the side. You take a moment to process this information, working it into the meshwork of what you can see, and, pick out the broad, faded wooden doors set under the stairs. Your old house had something like that. You can’t remember the word for it, but it’s supposed to lead down into a basement, isn’t it? You make your way to the opening and reach out to take the doorknob… Mr. Soames stiffens up behind you, raising his voice. “Why would you want to check the basement?” He asks, his tone most certainly suggesting funny business on your part. “My daughter disappeared from her room.

>(1/2)>[X] “I know how to do my job.” (ahahahaha…)You’ve had it up to here – here being at least your neck or your forehead or something – with this guy. You turn around, treating him to a long, no-doubt mysterious stare from behind the protective glint of your shades. “I know how to do my job.” You say, eventually, and fight to suppress your own internal monologue, lest it explode all over this man as a stream of incognisant laughter. For a brief moment you wonder how the Soames would feel if they knew their case had been used to, for all intents and purposes, ‘haze the newbie’. Mr. Soames glares down at you in stern silence, his brow bunching up into a solid mass of burgeoning anger. “…Why would you possible need to check our basement?” He asks, again, in a louder, accusatory tone of voice. “I’m being thorough.” You bubble it up on the spot. Like a pro, if you say so yourself. “I’m just checking all possible avenues of investigation.” “But why the hell the basement? How could anyone possibly get up through there without us knowing?” “I don’t know.” You grind your teeth and resist the urge to snarl. God you want to snarl or roar or something, just terrify the shit out of him. “Maybe I’ll find out. That’s the point of investigating stuff. To find things out.” “Son, don’t you take that tone with me!” “What tone, exactly?” “That”–
>(2/2)SCHKLIKT! You both blink, and turn towards the opposite end of the corridor. Her shoulders trembling, Mrs. Soames stands not eight foot away, a very loaded shotgun braced in her arms. She’s shaking like a leaf, eyes wide and unreasoning. The barrel of the gun hovers in the ambiguous space between you and Mr. Soames, before slowly swiveling in your direction. “Step away from him, Donald.” Mr. Soames swallows hard. “Now… Martha… let’s… let’s just talk about this…” -------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ 73: END >Congratulations!

So either:they both have a secret in the basement, which they believe is separate from ~'s disappearance, hence why she hired the agency.Or.The thing in the basement can mind control people, but only one at a time. It was controlling Mr. Sketchy, but when that failed to stop us form getting too close, it switched to Mrs. Sketchy who was closer to the shotgun.And its power is that none of them remember or notice anything odd about their actions when under control.
>>32334029They called the police for a cover story, I think, and the detective chose to get the Blonde Phantom Agency involved which the Soames' did not account for.
>>32333991pretty much thinking the same thing. that or they're afraid OF her.>>32334029maybe it's just to keep up appearances. Thought we'd instantly assume foul play
>>32331846Well this convo just got more ambiguous.
>>32334023People claim to have bought flight because it's something JJ would have wanted.I'd say that JJ wants to be able to pass as a normal person 1000 times more than he wants to fly.
>>32334092>when he was a kid his dream was to be just like big sis>wanting to be a normal personkek
>>32334092JJ has outright stated he wanted to fly to his big sis. We granted his wish.
>>32334092JJ did have dreams of flying. But, people didn't vote for flight because it was something he wanted they voted for it because it's something they wanted. They just used that as an excuse.Also... Double issue?
>>32334092Those people were stupid.It's a meta decision irrelevant to in-character desires. People gave him Dragon Breath for fuck's sake.
>>32334092I say JJ wants to have Wings 3 and be LizardElf Tasmaster
>>32334092Everyone has hopes and dreams, Anon. Being able to pass for human is a hope. Flying is a dream.JJ needs a hoodie, sunglasses, and gloves for the former, and has wings for the latter.
>>32334092>I don't read the archives also why try to blend in when you can just be invisible? Genetic mimicy a shit, which leads to cannibalism
>>32334155That boat has sailed anon.>leadsSlippery slope, really?Genetic mimicry a best.
>>32334138speaking of Dragons Breath does anyone else want to be able to shoot solar beams?
We should just save up X points until CJ gives us something that costs all of our points
>>32334119Bull shit. He is constantly wishing he could pass as a normal guy since the thread started. Genetic mimicry level 1 would allow him to do that. (For only 1 x-point)People don't vote for things JJ wants they vote for things they want.
>>32334092Yea, it's cannibalism, and we already have similar power, that is way better.
>>32334181yes. god yes.Godzillas little brother: JJ Green
>>32334169lv5 has brain eatingright in the damn pastebin.Invisibility>>>>shapeshifting
>>32334196>People don't vote for things JJ wants they vote for things they want.pot meet kettle.
>>32334169GenMim a shit. I'd rather max Adhesion before that.
Jesus, This has to be the saltiest quest on /tg/
>>32334237>Jesus, This has to be the saltiest quest on /tg/Oh yeah~
>>32334181>it costs 7 points. And DB is completely fucking useless until we spend all 7 points. That's a lot of points to spend on one power.>>32334237You haven't been on /tg/ very long have you.
>>32334169So we randomly go into frenzy and turn into other people?Dude this is ultra bad idea.Synergy is important.
>>32334237nay, Pokemon Quest will argue over anything.when the MC was asked if she has any goals beyond the league challenge, the spergy ones screamed that voting for the "I don't have any life goals outside of league challenge and hangin with buds" as "I don't care about my friends"and then Gobble just combines every option together like always.
>>32334256Name a quest that is more salty
>>32334272Princess guard questDead last ninja questI could go on
>>32334261>So we randomly go into frenzy and turn into other people?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpukSHuBbFw
>>32334256don't be so daft.we can make it work before then, but we need downtime or JJ to throw some more save throws at us.
>>32334287>Princess gaurdOh fuck youre right
>>32334272Hollow Quest Redux during that Beelzebub poker game.
No double issue today right?
>>32334237anything with more than 6 people, being based off a large franchise, and options for power buying is going to be salty
>>32334310Hollow Quest Redux since the gender Issue
>>32334256Yea, DB is not worth it. Too much DC, not enough profit.Electric hands 2 is way better for attack.And not like we need it anyway.We should just stick to powers that are usable while invisible.Flame breath really gives us away.
Why the hell are people using genetic mimicry level 5 as an excuse not to get level 1.Do you want me to list all the level 1 powers that we have that will never be anywhere close to level 5?
>>32334333>since the gender IssueI really don't remember that being shit.Granted, I was on a road trip and partially missed it, but what I did see didn't come off as toxic or anything.
>>32334339To be fair, ALL the secondary offensive powers are loud and proud.
>>32334340My reason is that I think JJ is already awkward, so it'd be even more awkward trying to mimic other people.
Rolled 6>>32334310On average, this quest is far saltier than HQR>>32334351The two times I can remember are when we got our ass murdered by worst scrub and the poker gameOtherwise, it's pretty pleasant
>>32334378Lower levels dont mimic other people, just their genetic make up a la a shitty version of mystique.
>>32334340It activates when consuming blood.We randomly bite people.
>>32334310>that one guy samefagged 7 times out of fear and lack of basic reading comprehensionusually chill, but when it shitstorms baby it shitstorms>>32334339its the only ranged attack we got and we aren't always going to stealthed up>>32334340we can be invisible, no need to blend in when we can just not be seen>>32334382this quest has more people actively participating in.and don't forget the rap battle
>>32334340When we first bought wall crawling no one said:>"We can't by wall crawling because level 5 costs 15 points and isn't very useful."We knew we weren't going to upgrade it when we bought it. But it doesn't matter because level 1 is useful ass fuck>>32334378Level 1 doesn't make him look like someone else it just makes him human looking. (he copies their hair and eye color, that's it.)
>>32334412It says Genetic Material.Not blood.He could consume hair.>http://pastebin.com/JYrcDPPk
>>32334412or other bodily fluids. Saliva counts.Hence the suggestion to kiss Laura.
>>32334417>and don't forget the rap battleI don't remember that being that salty.And I even voted for that shit.
>>32334417incorrect, geovision gives us a secondary (if kind of shittyer) secondary.Speaking of godzilla mode DB:level 2 DB used to state having throwable fire bomb things, would these turn into flashbangs with the solar breath thing?
>>32334417>we can be invisible, no need to blend in when we can just not be seenWe're a detective now. What happens when we need to interview people?
>>32334417Hello, we can trow stuff.We just cant be bothered to pocket a rock or 2. (preferably in sleeve). Been lobbying for it like forever.Geo vision+Strength.
>>32334205You're assuming we have to get level 5 inevitably.That's analogous to a slippery slope argument.
>>32334432I think she would stab jj to death
>>32334483>I think she would stab jj to deathWhat makes you think that?
>>32334461We fucking interview them. Or better yet have someone else do interviews for us.
>>32334248No seriously is salty the new rustled jimmies?
>>32334432Just take he with us and every time the mimic starts to wear off just kiss her again.>>32334461It might not have helped in this situation. But the fact that our entire face is hidden is a good indicator that we might be a mutant. People don't like talking to mutants even if he's trying to help.
Rolled 15>>32334417But the rap battle was hilarious and resulted in Scarborough Fair
>>32334503>No seriously is salty the new rustled jimmies?I have no idea.I was making a sex joke in that post.
>>32334483She likes JJ, she has as good as admitted it.Last tag game, we ended up with JJ and Laura holding hands. Folks are letting it progress at its own pace, but Laura is into JJ big time.
>>32333812double issue today?
>>32334477Level 1 Is out of control enough, (with the cannibalism flaw we have). Any body fluids would change us.Try keeping job when your face changes every 3 days.
>>32334542we can but hope.
>>32334533Well yeah that obvious, we knew she was gonna like JJ from the first time she was introduced, but I imagine that instincts take over when someone shape shifts into you, especially when 99% of your instincts are to kill shit
>>32334483nah, she'd remain still and stare blankly.>>32334461the same shit we did in this thread and have done for the past 70+ threads?>>32334466>>32334451we're not always going to have shit to throw>>32334522I know, sometimes failure leads to character building and or a new life goal (not that tg would ever take that well)
>>32334483The fuck are you talking about. She has a huge crush on JJ. Crusty said on one of the first threads that a romantic relationship can start after we reach relationship level 3. We're at 4. She would have no problems kissing JJ.
>>32334569>a romantic relationship can start after we reach relationship level 3I think you mean level 4.I could be wrong though.
>>32334569I meant the whole JJ is gone and now it appears that she just kissed herself part, not the kiss
Is Crusty gone?
>>32333812Where the fuck are you, Crusty?
>>32334568Yes, because we can't pick up a rock, or piece of wall. Especially with super strength.
>>32334568>the same shit we did in this thread and have done for the past 70+ threads?Were you here when JJ couldn't go into the store? Or, when we almost got into shit with the mutant patrol with Peter?Looking human would salve a lot of problems.
>>32334606those aren't always going to be there, anon.
>>32334579Not it's 3. Crusty confirmed we were at 3 with Victoria before we broke up with her.
>>32334564not really.relationship may have been swept from us if we found others very soon after finding laura, but it took a while.She disregarded logic, reason and instinct coming after us when we were captured. Very enamored with JJ. I doubt we would shift into a replica of Laura, but we would be able to hide none standard defects.>>32334568Hence shittyer version.>>32334579Kind of hard to tell, we went up in relationship with her very fast considering.
>>32334600he made like JJ and dissapeared.
>>32334619>Not having a pet rock right next to pocket sand Stay pleb, JJ
>>32334593>>32334600Would you want to hang around here after seeing what you had created?
>>32334656Taser hands trump pocket sand, though i will admit pet rock is pritty boss.>>32334663Sometimes he sticks around for post quest Q and A.
>>32334547>out of control>Any body fluids would change usIt ain't involuntary. If it were it'd be a sure thing. The pastebin says> JJ may>mayNot WILL, every time upon consumption of genetic material.
>>32334619Yes, because we cant tear off piece of something, or trow our buttons, or pocket something, or shit in our hand and toss shit.Seriously, that is not an excuse. We can rip off enemies body parts, or even our own pinkie and trow it, in worst case.Of course, we can always FUCKING RIP OFF PIECE OF WALL AND TROW IT.Unless we are in water and not carrying couple of rocks, we should always have monition.
>>32334663When people were starting shit over "out of character options", he stepped the fuck up and talked openly about it.I don't see why he wouldn't do the same here.
>>32334615I've been here since thread one.I remember when disguise checks were still a thing.I remember when we sprouted fangs and claws right in the middle of the phone store. you know what happened? we invis'd out and sent Kevin in the next day. problem solved, with no x points spent.>>32334656>throwing your pet rock>bringing your pet rock into dangerous situationsreported to ACSPCA and FBI >>32334682walls are not everywhere
>>32334679May, as in may randomly do stuff.
>>32334642>JJ turns into Laura>They mistake him for Laura try to use trigger scent>laughinglizards.jpg
>>32334715I would be too scared of Kim to laugh.
>>32334700We carry some pocket rocks for cases like that.Seriously, its not hard. Rocks are fucking everywhere.DB has even more limited munition. And shitton of downsides.
>>32334710Now you're seriously reaching for the most bizarrely pessimistic reading possible. Did you take a class in mental gymnastics?You're just assuming that JJ won't be able to control the shifting, ever.
>>32334710It's not random. Why would it be random?You eat DNA, and you... may somehow be unable to shift into that person? Or may randomly shift into someone else entirely?
>>32334749Look at comics. Witch shifter could completely control himself?Even Mystique couldn't.We have flaw that can fuck us up.Crusty specifically said that it will fuck us up.You want to invest in ability affected by flaw.
>>32334663Crusty isn't such a pussy anon. I guess he was busy today, short thread after all.
>>32334788you're talking out of your ass.though Genetic Mimicry is redundant and unnecessary.we have a better not getting noticed power and have had it since the first thread. Invisibility.
>>32334788You seem to be reading it in a truly absurd way though. It's no more uncertain than zappy hands power.Come on.>Level 3: JJ may now maintain the change for an hour.>Level 4: JJ now only needs an at least somewhat extended amount of physical contact with a target to take on their shape. Additionally, he can access a few of their mannerisms.>Level 5: By consuming a significant portion of a person’s brain, JJ may permanently ‘store’ their genetic code and take their shape at any time.Are you going to read every single "may" as in "he has no influence over it! who knows?" too?
>>32334811He said on Twitter he was free all day Saturday.
>>32334811probably fucking his GF or watching DOFP
>>32334663He didn't create it, though. Players did.
>>32334811>Crusty isn't such a pussyCome on you know he is.
It's been a while. I wonder... one minor modification to the ritual... Crusty is kill
>>32334829>He said on Twitter he was free all day Saturday.I thought he did, guess plans changed or he had to do something really quick and will be back.
>>32334829he has a life outside QMing.
>>32334879>he has a life outside QMing.But he also said he'd be free all day.
>>32334821>not getting noticed Yes, being invisible in a crowd will totally never be noticed.Or trying to talk to a normal person while invisible.Or buying stuff.There are times you want to be SEEN but not noticed, you realize?
>>32334881he didn't say he'd spend it here
>>32334829Actually, he's british, so it must be like 23 o'bong for him there. Maybe he has something tomorrow.
>>32334892hoodie and sunglasses have served just fine for over 70 threads.
>>32334975>obviously having something to hide>Anti mutant policeNo they haven't.
>>32335015haven't gotten lynched so I disagree with you
>>32335015We are obviously a celebrity hiding from the paparazzi. We are like that Ryan Gosling fellow
Rolled 17>>32335048CHARISMA CHECK
>>32335048>We are like that Ryan Gosling fellowwhich is amusing because crusty is totally writing Laura like the main character from Drive
Guys cant we hide our most visible mutations by getting some contacts?
>>32335048I saw Ryan Gosling at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
>>32335091not really JJ's eyes are black now iircthe shades are just fine
>>32335037>>32335037>“Excuse me…” He gets a closer look at your tattered silhouette. “…sir. Would you mind removing your glasses, please?” That is not "just fine". Your definition of "just fine" is wrong.Did you SEE the karma burning people had to do that thread?
3 threads to 404ing.
>>32335139karma burning comes from shit rolls, something that will always be a factor regardless of what powers JJ has.Genetic Mimicry is overall a redundancy
