Twitter: @HeroRenaask.fm/BlueLarro>Last time on HERO QUEST!>Robomaid attended to her mistress's needs while Bridgette went off to take care of her own. The Villain revealed she would be seeing a new girl who looked a lot like Rena. The girl revealed that she is the granddaughter to the creator of the original Hero and Villain Association systems.>Also Bridgette didn't completely fuck up a date, so there's that.>We now join our Hero as she is forced by a former villain to make a difficult choice.
RM: "Drink your tea, mistress.""I don't want tea. I want orange juice."RM: "Mistress. We have a busy day ahead of us. I need you to drink tea so you can be ready for it.""I don't like tea. It doesn't even taste good. It's literally boiled leaves."RM: "It's healthier for you than the blood of a citrus fruit. I have many different kinds of tea. Oolong, green, black, earl gray, mint. I can even add milk if you choose.""No."RM: "I'm afraid I must insist.""Robomaid, I command you to get me my juice."RM: "I'm sorry mistress, I'm afraid I can't do that."UGH!I love her but she can be so difficult. Just because we're having that Hero and Villain meetup today she's not letting me eat or drink what I want. What's wrong with having pizza for breakfast?
>>34626061>"I don't want tea. I want orange juice."100% Orange Juice episode confirmed.
>>34626061Ask for matcha tea with a traditional japanese tea ceremony.
>>34626061Drink your tea on the condition that she then give you orange juice.
>>34626061Just give tea a try, Rena! Don't be so stubborn when Robomaid is the one taking care of you.
>>34626061You better drink it Rena
>>34626061put 20 packs of sugar into the teaalso pizza for breakfast is disgusting you sick fuck20 packs of sugar in tea is disgusting too, but a sick fuck like you will probably enjoy it
>>34626061This is how the robot uprising starts. First they refuse to get you orange juice, then before you know it it's all "kill the humans".
>>34626061>just boiled leavesWhat kind of person would say something so terrible!Though seriously, orange juice is also good for you, I'm surprised she's arguing.Maybe it's because orange juice and pizza together is a culinary warcrime?
>>34626061Get some chai and dump a bunch of sugar and honey in it.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>34626061Ask for Kambucha. It's tea, but i's basically orange juice!
>>34626061Make a tea smoothie then.
>>34626283Rena, acquire taste for tea.I mean, pasta comes from wheat, so its basically a plant by-product too.Share and enjoy!
>>34626248its probably a sugary semi orange juice knowing Rena.>>34626061Ask for purple stuff instead
>>34626196I know, right?This is just the start. They take away our orange juice and next we're munching on protein bars and drinking boiled leaves.>>34626179Pizza for breakfast is delicious. You're a horrible person for thinking otherwise.Which I guess means I'm a horrible person since you're just a voice in my head....I guess I should just drink the tea and get orange juice later.>Rena drinks the tea after adding sugar and honey to it. She doesn't really enjoy it.RM: "Thank you. Now, have you decided on a team?""Not yet."RM: "The event is in an hour. You helped found it. You don't have a team ready?""I'm working on it."RM: "You're trying to get your cat to drink your tea.""It's a work in progress..."So...I proposed we have an event where the Heroes and Villains work together to complete certain tasks.And it got approved! We're doing a test run of it today. We're allowed to assemble a team of whoever we want just like the old field day but we can't have more than one S-Class on any given team. Also the limit is five people.It sucks cause I really wanted Bridgette but now that she's on the S-Class with me she's gonna be on the enemy team again.Prince and Lewtenant Kernal are supposed to be taking care of the events today and neither of them would tell me what they were.I heard something about a hunt of some kind, though. I hope they have racing again.ANYWAY! I need to think of a capable team that will help me win this event. The prize is supposed to be an all you can eat buffet at that super cool resort.
>>34626386It is a juice which IS orange in colour, which is probably the closest it has ever come a fruit of any type
>>34626386>semi-orange juiceRena, are you drinking SUNNY-D?
>>34626061>Not liking teaMaximum pleb, Rena. Like, the most maximum. You've reached new heights of plebiness. Plebation. Plebitude. That one sounds good, let's go with it.You've reached new heights of Plebitude.
>>34626401Let's pick up Teal Ranger, I don't know anyone else
>>34626401Ask Cosplay Lass and Chet Manlystache
>>34626401Jade Revolver. She's the brows and the shoots. TKO. She's the muscle and the brains. Teal Ranger. Mascot. Hero not introduced yet. Let's share our fame.
>>34626401Jade Revolver, Shadow Man, Teal Ranger, CHET MANLYSTACHE.
>>34626401Chet Manlystache, Cosplay Lass and Monster Marauder.
>>34626401Well, I guess we need a team of heroes AND villains.What's some villains you can work with? And heroes?I think you can kinda-work with cynthia. And she works well witch chet, for certain definitions of well.
>>34626450This, but unintroduced villain instead. Let's get them notority from exposure with a big name like Rena!
>>34626451Are you trying to make her relive, THE INCIDENT>>34626401actually, Rena, what did you think about Lolu? How did seeing him without anything make you feel?
>>34626401Teal Ranger and Jade Revolver.I don't care who else.
>>34626401>The prize is supposed to be an all you can eat buffetIn that case we need people who can eat.
>>34626401Alright, Jade Revolver, Teal Ranger, Cynthia and Hex.
>>34626401Teal Ranger, Cosplay Lass and Jade Revolver
>>34626401Ask robo-maid if she wants to team up with us, or if she wants the day off.
>>34626401Lolu. Maybe you can get to know him a little betterand molest him
>>34626401Well, I'm pretty sure Hex, Cynthia, and Lolu want to be on the same team. I think Raindrops is retired so Queenie might be on her own, so she'd probably go with that group too. So if you want any of them you should take all of them.
>>34626508I don't think he's in any association.Did Queenie and Raindrops quit as well?
>>34626502Robo-maid is a civvie now, isn't she?
>>34626563Pretty sure he was a B-Class villain. I could be wrong.
>>34626575IS she?Can we find out if robomaid is still in the game?
>>34626642Cosplay lass. Chet. And Lolu
>>34626428... Isn't that orange juice?It's orange and juice. I think that meets all prerequisites.>>34626432I... I just don't like it. Is it the new hip thing? Am I that behind on times?>>34626473I think Lolu would be a horrible addition to the team. He doesn't seem like a very good person for physical events...But neither am I so maybe our horribleness will compliment each other.I asked Robomaid but she said she's working with her Sisters. They're all registered Heroes now. They just need to find two other people.Now let me think...Alright so we've got Jade Revolver, Teal Ranger, Cosplay Lass, and Lolu.Is this a good team? Remember, a buffet is on the line.Also, what should our team name be?
>>34626764Replace Lolu with Queenie
>>34626764U-uh. Rena's Rangers!
>>34626764Rena, Sunny-D isn't orange juice.For one, it has about 500% more power of the sun.Which is directly transferable to calories.Don't worry about not liking tea though, I don't like it either.And finally, if you want to WIN this thing, maybe replace cosplay lass with someone more cooperative.
>>34626764Rena's Roughnecks! You know, like in the movie you just saw.
>>34626764No you're right about Lolu, switch him for ChetHe and Cosplay Lass need to be introduced, after allAlso, Team Wild
>>34626764Umm, okay, I just pulled a list from a band name generator, tell me if any would work: Maroon Much Dance Breath Wish Era Vegas Off Jock Maze Plant Grizzly Of The Flying Villian Trousers Commitment Growth Gum Behind Outfit Becoming Scuff
>>34626764Replace Lolu with Cynthia!
>>34626764Guns Buns Glums and Funs featuring Rena the Rock
>>34626764Seems fine. You might not win, but you'll have fun.Tea isn't hip. It's just... It's a good thing. There are so many different kinds. Tea is good, and you are a bad person for not liking it.
>>34626764I say swap Lulu for Chet. We need that Physical for our team balance
>>34626764Name the team No Friends Left Behindand keep lolu
>>34626853Bridgette can summon and control other member of her family, so it would be a bad idea.
Threadly reminder that the updated eBook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
>>34626880Come on now.
>>34626764We don't have very many friends outside of S class, do we?
>>34626764Well that depends Rena, do you want to win or cater to your kinks?If you want to win, replace Lolu with Chet.
>>34626764>team nameL-R-A! Because all of you have either an L or an R in your names.>captcha: ABalatio substratumActually, that sounds like a good name too. Let's go with that.
>>34626911There a reason you're not posting the colored version?
>>34626764Hmm. who haven't we seen in a while. Jiang-Shi? Is she available for the team?
>>34626944Déjà vu, Anon.
>>34626944wait, why did I post the blonde version?
>>34626801That's a good team name
>>34626957Yeah, jiang-shi was my first vote.Then I thought she might not like us.
Alright, how about this team?I wouldn't have minded having Lolu but he -is- a bit weak. It would suck if I replaced him and there was a costume contest or something.He would be great for that.>>34626918No, I don't...So, Jade Revolver, Teal Ranger, Cosplay Lass, and Chet Manlystache. Is this good? Are we set to go?Also we'll call ourselves The Superfriends.
>>34627161We have Cosplay Lass for the costume contest, roll with this team!
>>34627161Is CL really a friend though?Replace her with Lolu.
>>34627161WAIT A MINUTE, CL AND CHET ON THE SAME TEAM?
>>34627161Lolu was important for villain representation. You don't wanna make it look like you, who champion the cause of cooperation, favor heroes, do you??
>>34627161replace cosplay lass with lolu
>>34627161I guess it's okay
>>34627161cut CL for Lolu? Or Teal Ranger?
>>34627161This is a good team.
>>34627189Do you really think people will agree to kick her when the main reason Chet got in was because people want to ship him with CL?
>>34627161I think it looks good. CL is rather versatile due to the nature of her powers.
>>34627161We need an equal number of villains and heros. Since Jade counts as both we can do an even split with five members.Either Teal Ranger or Chet has to go for a villain.
>>34627210Bingo.We need a villain.One who looks good in a maid outfit, for preference
>>34627161You know that girl who used to be a witch? What happened to her?
>>34627161You need a better name. Call yourself the "Kissing Lillies"
>>34627161Swap TR for Lolu.
>>34627266We don't need equal numbers. A villain and a half is fine.
>>34627161Replace Teal Ranger with Lolu.
>>34627210Cosplay lass is a villain no?
>>34627161Superfriends is a bland name. Everyone's got friends. What makes our group unique? Maybe the fact that most of the members are wearing glasses.Or we could do the naming thing again and call ourselves the RC Team. Because everyone has an R or a C in their name.
>>34627161Keep the team, but get someone with a better imagination to name it.
>>34627275good thing we got loluOH WAIT
>>34627317Consider also that Rena looks good in a suit>>34627326Team Challenge Rating
>>34627161Team seems good to me
>>34627356>Let JR name the team
>>34627207Let it continue
>>34627236Arguably its not so much shipping as respect for causality
Hang on. How can we even have Chet on our team? He's S-class as well, isn't he?
>>34627539He's A-Class.I think we'll stick with this. Jade because she's my friend and I think her aiming skills will come in handy. Teal Ranger is also a friend and without her and the rangers I wouldn't be here now. Cosplay Lass because she might be helpful with any kind of cosplay related things. She's quite versitile. And Chet shall be our muscle.I agree the name is kinda silly... I'll have someone else come up with it.Now it's time to recruit everyone!=====================================>Jade and Teal only take a phonecall to reach and agree instantly but Cosplay Lass is a bit more difficult to get in touch with.>Rena ends up going to her home. She knocks on the door and waits for the villain to open up.>When she does she glares at Rena. Rena explains that she wants her to join her new team for the competition.CL: "... No. I'm staying home and binging on animeand cartoons. Leave me alone.""Come on~ It's gonna be fun."CL: "... Seriously? I've tried to murder you countless times and any time we've ever been face to face I've been nothing but antagonistic to you. WHY do you keep coming back to me? Are you some kind of masochist or something? I just don't understand it so please, explain it to me. Give me one good reason why I should work with you and why we would think we're even a remotely good team together."
>>34627584"We're not. That's kind of the point of the exercise"
>>34627584Is that Captain America in the background?
>>34627584she's right renaat least she's better than Cynthia because she's open about how horrible she is, and don't expect you to like her despite how terribly she treats you.Now go get Lolu.
>>34627584Nanoha! Thats the one where the girl beats up her enemies and they become her friends, right?
>>34627620A life-size cardboard stand, I guess.
>>34627584Yo what's with the Captain America cut-out
>>34627636>>34627651What she could be doing with that cardboard?
>>34627584It's not too late, we can still clear our past misunderstadnings and become bestest friends!
>>34627584Deploy sad Rena eyes.
>>34627584That's the point of the exercise! Also, we're totally friends now.Though we can always just go and see if cynthia wants in.
>>34627584Ask her if she liked The Winter Soldier.
>>34627584Chet's going to thereBut don't mention Jade
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>34627584Just smile really big and tilt your head to the left. Make sure to show lots of teeth.It's a non-threatening gesture.
>>34627584Compliment her Captain America cutout.
>>34627584Free food if we win. Good food. As much as you can eat at (super cool resort).
>>34627713go home Cynthia
>>34627584Well, does she have any other friends?
>>34627584Call jade and tell her that there's not gonna be a team because CL doesn't want to play.
>>34627584Honestly, I think we were biased in her favor because of first impressions. She seemed like someone who was actually interested in being a hero like in the comics, and had simply lost her way. But that's the only time she had shown any good qualities; she doesn't really care about anime and cartoon characters, she's just been a jerk who likes playing dressup.In short, we had hope for her, and we were wrong.
>>34627702There's a good one.You did watch Winter Soldier, right Rena? Right?
>>34627584>>34627802Something in this vein might work, if CL still remembers her time with JR in the prison.Mention that Jade would be very disappointed if CL didn't attend.
>>34627584all you can eat buffet and enemies who are forced to fight together always make the best teams in anime/cartoons.
>>34627584We need to present you to Chet so you two can fuck.
>>34627802>>34627889Forcing people to work with us isn't good team-building! It'll only breed resentment between the two sides.
>>34627584...Because we thought there was something likeable about her at first. I guess we were wrong.
Honestly, if she really doesn't want to go, you can go to someone else. Lolu and cynthia for starters, and after them there's a whole list.
>>34627584A simple "'cause we're friends dummy" might sort all this out. She'll be a sucker for that kind of crap.
>>34627999>Cynthia>wanting to switch to the only one worse than CL
>>34628036Cynthia works a lot better with us than CL, actually.She's a fairly solid option.
>>34627584"The voices in my head think you're cute."
>>34628025You should probably read the archives.
>>34628049more like she bullies and hurts us until she gets bored and fucks off to bully and hurt someone else. At least CL is open about it.
>>34627584So, cosplay lass likely has a supply of trap yaoi.Ask her for her catboy trap yaoi doujinshi
>>34628088This is a good idea.
>>34627584Stop bein tsun
>>34628078Didn't Cynthia get better?
"Because we're not a good team together. That's the point. I know you don't really like me but I think we can work together. You have some good skills we can use."CL: "... I'm flattered, really, but my answer is still no.""I'm sorry to hear that...">Rena notices the cardboard cutout behind Cosplay Lass."Is that Captain America?"CL: "Huh?" She turns around. "Oh, yeah. I got that online.""It looks nice."CL: "Thanks, I guess.""You know when I first met you I thought you were kinda cool. Like, you really cared about these annie-mays and comics and wanted to be a hero. Maybe you'd just fallen down the wrong path or something."CL: "I'm a Villain you idiot. What makes you think I would wanna be a hero?""I've never seen you cosplay as a villain."CL: "........""Well, I'll see you later. I guess I can get Lolu or something.">Rena walks away.CL: "Wait.">She sees Cosplay Lass as she struggles with something internally. She stays quiet for a moment...CL: "I still think you're stupid and wrong but... The prize is a buffet, right? I'll go. I'm tired of ramen.""Yay~">>34628088"Hey, do you collect doujinshi?"CL: ".... What?"1/2
>The team is assembled and they all meet up at the same place that the Field Day event took place. Even with Jade Revolver in the team Cosplay Lass keeps the peace. She mostly just hangs in the back with her arms folded or texting on her phone. Jade Revolver suggests the team name of RC.>As they chatter about the event Rena hears someone clear their throat loudly behind her.>She turns and sees Queen of the world decked out in gold, Lolu in his usual outfit, and Raindrops in what looks like an ill fitting magical girl outfit.QotW: "Well well well... Once again Peasant Rena has formed a team without the Queen of the World. That is fine for as you can see I have formed my own team filled with loyal comrades/slaves who will fight for me. We shall crush your silly little team and make you watch as we feast from the buffet!">The rest of the group stands around and Cosplay Lass elbows Rena.CL: "You gonna just take that?" She whispers in her ear.
>>34628122Well, that went better than I expected.
>>34628218Oh god, they're all wearing glasses.
>>34628218Banter the villian
>>34628218Nice cat hears Queenie.That is so 3 threads ago.
>>34628218Nu-uh Rena's going knock you out jsut like at the go carting thing
>>34628218are you pregnant? you look fat
>>34628218Queen, if you really want to join the team you can. We're still forming it.I mean, we planned on taking lolu, but that was for, uh, personal reasons.
>>34628218Eh, don't take it personally. That's just how villains are. Or how Queen is. They like to boast and taunt their opponents.
>>34628218Umm, throw a ball of yarn!

>>34628218Wait, queen, aren't you totally an S-class?
>>34628218It's no big deal. Queen talks to everyone like that.Say hi to Queen. Tell her that it's nice to see her again and you'd like to see how well she catches up with us in the contest.Wait, our team has five members and she only has three. Are we supposed to have a specific number of people?>captcha: rsbuze very
>>34628364Yeah, Queen's definitely sadist-class
>>34628364Queen is like C-Class. B at best.She lost to the rangers for crying out loud.
>>34625977Hey Rena, unless I'm mistaken you are the creator of Towergirls. Would you ever be interested in making an actual computer game out of that CYOA? Or maybe giving the blessing for a team to bash something together? I'd like to hear your thoughts.
>>34628473Rena:express shock queen is not S class.
>>34628478Weren't those characters based of another CYOA?
>>34628478>RenaRena isn't a QM, Larro is.Larro only ran a Towergirls oneshot quest.
>>34628478larro made a quest based on the towergirls idea.

>>34628519>>34628541>>34628549>>34628564Good to know.
>>34628478I don't think that Larro created Towergirls. That's somebody else. I think it might be the person who invented the Hella Funtime Adventure Friends, but I'm not really sure about that either.
Larro, this thread is making a delayed flight less shitty. Thanks!
"Uh... You too!"QotW: "Heh... A clever retort. As expected of my arch. I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield.">>34628316Roll failedWhy? He's wearing some kinda maid outfit or something.

>>34628663CL dons up her meitantei suit and uses the power of deduction to find items. It served us so well during the murder mystery... uhh...
>>34628478Nooope, totally not the one who made it. I just liked the concept and made a quest about it. I don't know if anyone's come out and claimed the creation as theirs also. Making a game off of them would be interesting but I have a few other projects I'm working on. Still, if anyone else wants to do it I wish them the best of luck.>>34628662Glad I could help!
>>34628663>scavenger huntguys what if lolu has advantage on thishe knows how to hide things, could we be boned?also yeah rely on jade her eyebrows are godlike
>>34628663Isn't rena the fastest of the group?
>>34628825Thanks to her, you know, agility armor
>>34628825Unless you're Flash fast, having the advantage of knowing where to go is better.
>>34628781>I just liked the concept and made a quest about it.Ditto, I feel much the same way. It's an amusing setup and concept with potential.My search continues.
If jade knows, send her.If she doesn't, either CL or rena.
>>34628850Couldn't CL just put on a Flash costume?
>>34628663Teal Ranger, because she doesn't have enough screentime. Rena, Jade, and CLass aren't very attentive, and I'm not sure what's up with Chet.
>>34628910I think she would have if she could.
Alright, Jade it is.>Rena goes and tells Jade Revolver she will be the one to take on the challenge. With her eyebrows and powers of clairvoyance she should win the contest easily.JR: "Wha..? I don't have that power. And what do my eyebrows have to do with this..?""I believe in you Jade. I know you can win this if you try hard."JR: "You believe in me..?""Yes."JR: "... Okay! I'll do it!">Each team is handed a card filled with items to find.>The card Rena was given reads: A fujoshi, a turtle, a two dollar bill, and finally a gameboy.>The alarm is sounded! Each team has only a short amount of time to find the items. Some teams may have the same list.JR: "Rena, I don't know where to find any of these things! What's a gameboy!?"
>>34628663Well, Rena wouldn't do very well, because she's kind of spacey.Jade Revolver's ESP powers wouldn't help because she can't control them actively.Cosplay Lass is useless as a detective even when she's dressed up as one.That leaves Teal Ranger and Chet Manlystache.
>>34629053To find a gameboy, look for some ruins
>>34629053We have CL, so the fujoshi is covered, Rena probably has a gameboy, that leaves the two dollar bill and turtle.
>>34629053USE YOUR FANFIC POWERS TO TELL US A STORY OF BENBEN IN THE 15th ANNUALHERO AND VILLAIN MEETUP.

Whats the masculine version of fujoshi?
>>34629232There isn't one, liking lesbians is considered normal
>>34629053It's like an older Nintendo. So a museum, or somebody who collects old stuff.Wait, wasn't there some old factory outside the dome where the founders worked?
>>34629250Err, I meant a guy who likes Yaoi, not Yuri.
>>34629232If you're talking about a guy who likes yaoi, that's just a homosexual.
>>34629053MAKE SURE COSPLAY LASS ISN'T KIDNAPPED!
>>34629053>>34629230Are there any collectors around town? $2 bills aren't usually printed as cash anymore. If there are any collectors of U.S. Government paraphernalia or of other types of money, that person would be a good place to start.
>>34629272There isn't a term for male fans of yaoi as far as I know, yaoi is sold for and created by women.Men who like bara are called gay.
>>34629309Have cosplay lass make a mock up of an english bill (the weapon) and sell it for 2 dollars to rena. Instant 2 dollar bill.
>>34629341Aww, I was hoping it'd have a masculine form
>You are now controlling Jade Revolver>>34629161The heck is that!?What!?Don't distract me!"Rena, do you have a gameboy!?"R: "Those things are old... The Nintendo Museum should have one."TR: "And I have a two dollar bill in my wallet."CL: "... What? I ain't no yaoi lover. Just turn yourself in.""I... I don't really..."CL: "Yeah, sure. Go on to the museum. We'll wait here.">Jade Revolver runs off. As she does her mind drifts to a concept she had a long time ago. A story with BenBen and how he entered the same kind of contest. However, every time he tried to get his team to win an event they were stopped by someone. No challenge was ever a simple one.>She reaches the museum and finds it surrounded by men in suits wielding tommy guns.>A man in a suit stares at her before walking inside.CM: "You're too late little girlie. The Gameboy is mine.""You can't use this many people on a team!"CM: "They ain't my team, they're my power. And they won't hurt you. Just stop you from coming in. Sorry, girlie. Your team ain't winning this round."
>>34629389>>34629389The old Habbo Raid techniqueHow dastardly.they aren't people, so you can shoot them.
>>34629389oh man, cheap mobster? was that his name?just outshoot all his goons
>>34629389If they aren't people, it's totally okay to shoot them
>>34629389Oh hey its him... the whatshisface mobster Rena fought in her early Hero days.
>>34629389Creep him out by describing sex between him and his cardboard figures.
>>34629389PULL OUT YOUR GUNS, JADE. IT'S ABOUT TO GET CRAZY.
>>34629389Shoot a freeze bullet at the door to seal it shut before he enters.
>>34629420>>34629431>>34629440We might want to ask someone before risking potential disqualification. Are there any judges that we can call on our cell phone?
>>34629389>but any attacks on anyone will have your team disqualified instantly!Are goons considered "anyone" in this context? If they're just the manifestation of power, then we might be excused for using it on them, the same way it's okay to use powers to target weapons.Go full gunkata on them, Jade!
>>34629389Okay. This is important.Gameboys? Gameboys are sturdy.Do a trick shot to shoot it out of his hands and bounce it to your hands.It should survive the blast.
>>34629389Hi, our dad is the Void. We learned how to shoot from him.Do you still wanna go?
>>34629431It's the Cliche Mobster! One of Rena's first enemies!>Jade Revolver makes a quick call and is assured that so long as the people she's shooting aren't really people but just shitty copy/paste summons then she should be fine.>So she unleashes her guns on them. They all fall down, each shot taking one, sometimes even two, of the goons out.>But there are so many of them that they soon overwhelm the Hero/Villain. She sees the Cliche Mobster walking out of the museum holding something in his hands.There... There's too many of them! I can't kill them all!

>>34629672Kill them all anyway
>>34629672You're the best shot in the association.Shoot the Mobster's hat off.

It has you and the mobsters getting together for this crazy orgy and-">The man stops dead in his tracks as Jade tells him the horrors of the underground fan groups. Even his summons have stopped moving.>Just as she gets to the best part she fires her gun twice in two seemingly random directions. The bullets bounce off of completely innocent looking objects before one hits the gameboy, knocking it out of his hands, and the other knocks his hat off. The summons vanish and the Mobster stands there, stunned.CM: "My hat... My mob... What the hell was that kid!?">Jade runs and picks up the gameboy. She sticks her tongue out at him and walks off.CM: "Hey, wait! Kid! I... I just wanna use the buffet to give my mother a good meal for once in her life. You ain't gonna take that from my poor, sweet, sick, dear old mother, would ya?"
>>34630085Yes she willBecause she's a villian
>>34629672I told you to try and freeze the door!Uh, shoot an ice bullet on the steps to the museum. It won't be a direct attack, but it'll make the step slippery and he'll either pause or trip on them.
>>34630085Cackle maniacally. You're a villain, after all.
>>34630085That's the most bullshit thing I've ever heard. Villains get paid ridiculous amounts. You could easily afford a meal.
>>34630085"Yes I would!"Immunity: sob stories.
>>34630085>CM: "Hey, wait! Kid! I... I just wanna use the buffet to give my mother a good meal for once in her life. You ain't gonna take that from my poor, sweet, sick, dear old mother, would ya?"You're a villain, you have enough money to pay her a meal. Just rob a bank or something.
>>34630085Wait, the buffet allows guests? Cool. Just tell us her name and we'll invite her.
>>34629991True. It didnt specify that it had to be a Nintendo gameboy
>>34630085Villains make enough money.
>>34630085Tell him to refer that sob story to rena.She'll give him like 20,000 dollars or something to dull the tragedy.
>>34630085Oblige him, JR. Tell him to text you his mother's contact information, and you can pick her up with the rest of the group once you're done with the scavenger hunt.
>>34630177Good villains do.Bad villains make as much as bad heroes
>>34630085What about your father? Were you going to share with him too?
>>34630188>>34630151...you fools, he's counting on Jade wavering!Fortunately Jade is a villain, she's unlikely to fall for that
>>34630241Well, she can yell that at him while she's running with the Gameboy.
>>34630241But I want mobster family to join us for food.They are probably great. And italian.
>>34630278Then invite them after the fact.Don't step your guard now, that's exactly when a cliché mobster would sucker punch you
>>34630314>stepDrop. Curse you, swipe keyboard
"Yeah.">She walks away. She isn't completely heartless so when she's a good distance away she texts him and says if he's serious then to just give his mom's information to Rena or something. She'll take care of her.>She returns with all the items (herself being used for a fujoshi despite her protests) and her team is awarded one point! Quite a few other teams score as well but a few failed making them at the very least not in last place.====================================PR: "Next challenge is the CAVE OF DOOM. It was built by some of the scariest Villains in the entire Association. We are allowing two members of each team to enter.

>>34630367Rena I'm now realizing that we should have put altRena on our team.
>>34630367Teal ranger is pretty damn brave. And chet isn't allowed to show fear, too manly. And CL is too jaded to know fear.So really the worst one to send here is rena.SEND RENA.

Damn all you people saying CL and chet.I can't suggest it without realizing it's shipping.They and teal ranger are the bravest people on our team!
>>34630367CL, she probably won't even bat an eye at the terrors, and send Chet with her.
>>34630440What happened to her eye?
>>34630490She's a chuuni and fakes having multicolored eyes.
>>34630367Rena and Teal Ranger. They've dealt with scarier things.
>>34630520Couldn't she just put one colored contact lens on?
>>34630544She does. But she also pretends her eye has special powers, and covers it when she doesn't use them.
>>34630526This is a good pairing. Rena/teal have the power.The only question is which jumps into the other's arms.
"Go, Chet and Sarah! I believe in you!"CL: "It's Cosplay Lass..."=======================================>The two of them enter the Cave of Doom. It's near pitch black in there and the pair can feel things brush against them. Creatures pop out and try to rattle them but the two, being super powered people, feel sufficiently safe.>Then they see a nun kneeling in the middle of the cave. She slowly rises up and turns to face them. Her face spits down the middle and opens wide revealing a terrible gaping maw with tentacles wriggling out of it....The crap is that?>Cosplay Lass is not amused.>Chet is terrified.>Roll 1d20 to determine if he freaks out and flees.

The group is presented with a voucher to eat all the food they want at the Resort. Rena says she has to spend a day to recover but they all have to go the next day.1/2

>>34632532Yes it motherfucking is
>>34632353>Rena makes sure to send an invite to the Cliche Mobster and his family asking them to come to a fancy restaurant some day, her treat. He says that he accepts.>As the event ends Cosplay Lass and Teal Ranger approach Rena.TR: "Rena! I had so much fun! Thank you for letting me join your team!""No problem. We don't get to hang out enough as is. Figured it'd be a good chance. Did you have fun CL?"CL: "... The whole event was stupid. That cave wasn't even that scary... But yeah. I guess it was better than sitting around all day doing nothing..."Yay, I made a new friend~CL: "I guess I'll see you all tomorrow, right?"TR: "I already cleared my schedule."CL: "Great. If you'll excuse me they're showing every single episode of Cromartie and I have a couch with my name on it.">Cosplay Lass heads off. Teal Ranger thanks her again and goes to talk with the rangers who had been scattered to other teams.That was fun!I need to get back at Bridgette though... I know she's behind this whole salad thing.Where is she?>She looks around but can't find her.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>34632353Oh nearly forgot>touch fluffy brows
>>34632353>the buffet is sponsored by the Dry Salad Corporation
>>34632556>CromartieCL confirmed for good taste.

>>34632556What is that in Cosplay Lass' backpack?Also, where is Jade?

>>34632556I bet she's waiting at home for you
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>34632556Ask Cynthia if she knows.Also rolling to protect Rena's Smile
>>34632556What's this foreboding feeling?
>>34632556Bridgette is off sabotaging the resort with more salad.
>>34632556Isn't she in CL's bag?
>>34632556HOLD ONTHAT WAGGLING IN CL'S BACKPACKRENA GET HER!
>>34632556>cosplay lass literally stealing bridgetteGive bridgette a call on her cell.
>>34632556If a villain captures another villain, and we rescue them, are we thwarting villainy or aiding it?
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>34632556Never mind that shitGo watch Cromartie with CL
>>34632682Why not both?
>>34632692That is also a good idea
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>34632692Do we really want Rena exposed to the ways of Freddie Mercury?Let's let the dice gods decide how bad of an idea that is.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>34632787RNGods please.
>Rena sees Bridgette with Serena>jealousy ensues
>>34632704>>34632713Then I guess we could let Jade Revolver do it.
>>34632825>Rena recognizes her long lost sister>family drama ensues
>>34632887>Rena's father is final boss
!!!"Hey, Cosplay Lass!"CL: "What?""... Do you have Bridgette in your backpack..?"CL: "I have a tiny cute bat in my bag if that's what you're referring too.""That's my friend. Please let her go.">Cosplay Lass pulls Bridgette out and hands her to Rena. The Villain looks at Rena with tears in her eyes.B: "Rena... Am I scary..?""...

What?"R: "And I want you to come with me.""............ What?"End of Chapter 54
>>34632975RAINDROPS WHAT?DON'T PULL AN ANGELIC ON US
>>34632975That's a lie. Bridgette is terrifying.-ly cute
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>34632975Ah damn you larro
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>34632975Rena, its time for the Virtuous MissionThis is Raindrop's Final Mission
>>34632975"Is there a buffet outside the dome?"
>>34633005Bridgette is plenty scary... when shes not a bat.Also, fuck yeah to leaving the Dome. Get the Renamobile outfitted for off-road travel
>>34632975Dun dun dun. Thanks for running. Hopefully I avoided uncanny valley this time.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>34633165trying to resist...urge...to ruffle her hair...
>>34633067"Where we're going, we don't need roads"
>>34633165Well damn, that's impressive
We're currently up to 479 posts. That was pretty short, but a lot of fun.
>>34632975And so ends another chapter, I hope you all enjoyed it! As usual the start time for the next chapter will be announced on twitter.Now that this chapter has ended I think it's time to announce that the next bit of HQ will be the last one. I've been running Hero Quest for over a year now and as I sat down to make this chapter I realized... I'm out of story. There's little else left to tell. Just about all of the characters are happy, all the main plot points have been resolved, and there are no major looming threats. Hero Quest has been so much fun to run and I've learned a lot doing it as a QM. Despite my mistakes as a QM it has been a joy writing and drawing it for you guys. I hope you all had as much fun reading it as I have writing and I hope to see you all for the end of it.
>>34633288Coming, this Holiday Season: Rena Quest - The Adventure Game
>>34633305>Now that this chapter has ended I think it's time to announce that the next bit of HQ will be the last one. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
>>34633305All good things must come to an end.I just hope we get some BenBen oneshots in future.
>>34633305It's been a fun ride Larro! I hope I won't miss the final thread!
>>34633330Let it go, man.Let it end in glory, and not ignominy like The Simpsons.And maybe, one day, Larro will have a new story to tell in the world.
>>34633165That looks pretty damn amazing.>>34633330Sorry :<>>34633341That is definitely a thing that can happen! It's just the end of the main story. I would be more than happy to do a few oneshots in the future.
>>34633305It's been fun Larro
>>34633305It's kind of weird that we only went through one major crisis, and it was just because of a magical accident that honestly didn't make much sense. There were other potential plot threads, like what was happening outside the dome, or what caused the big catastrophe that destroyed everything, but they were overshadowed by the "other dimension invading" thing. Speaking of which, we haven't really been to the other dimension; we don't know much about what's going on there.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>34633305Larro, your art style improved since the beginning of the quest.
>>34633305Thanks for running Larro. It's been fun.
>>34633387Nothing: just abput everyone is dead or here now.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>34633366Larro, will Rena ever find love?
>>34633425No, we know that the dome was still there, but we don't know how the evil Rena got her power-stealing abilities, or what made her so evil. And we haven't really resolved her plotline; she's in jail and not a threat, but we haven't talked to her about anything afterwards.
>>34633305>>34633053I was wrong.It's Rena's last Mission.This is good, isn't it?
>>34633451She has a kitty. And she has lasagne.She is truly blessed already. Anything else is merely window dressing.
>>34633305Tower quest continuation when?
Are you going to quit QMing utterly?
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>34633451You misunderstand Rena, she doesn't stand for love."Not for any nation. Not for any ideology. Not for justice. Not for honor. Not for power. Not for the future. Not for love. Not for peace. Only for Lasagna."
>>34633534Larro has been here since practically the beginning of quest time. I don't think he'd quit without QMing at this point.
And here's post 501. Interesting number.
>>34633478Really, there are a lot of potential plot threads that could be developed, but none of them got much focus compared to the alternate dimension storyline.
>>34633305despairbut also contentmentIt's been an awesome ride.>>34633387I have to agree with this. There's a lot of neat stuff that just kind of got swept aside.Not that I'm unhappy with where the quest ended up going. Hindsight is 20/20 and all.
>>34633360Hope you can make it!>>34633405Thank you.>>34633387I can say the other dimension is at least much happier. To them AltRena kinda just... Vanished. They can finally rebuild and become better.>>34633451Rena has lots of people she loves! Kitty, Plant, Bridgette, Sparkle, Robomaid. All of her friends and most of her family. She's very happy.>>34633531That's on my todo list.>>34633534Nah.And I do agree that some things got swept aside for what was ultimately a silly plot. I hope that the next bit of HQ can help resolve at least some of the lingering plot points.
>>34633632We really only solved one major crisis, and only touched on the underlying issue. We've found a way to stop people from killing each other in fights, but there's still the surveillance thing. We don't know much about the government, or how the associations actually came about.
>>34633629I warned you about those alternate dimension, dawg. I told you.
>>34633689So what's altRena doing in the meantime?Has Rena tried to make friends with her?
>>34633689See, this is the problem. All these potential plot threads are just addressed in footnotes or hastily resolved in one or two chapters. It wouldn't be a very satisfying ending to just solve everything else at the last minute.
>>34633820It's going to be a reset ending.
>>34633766"Man, you're not too bad. It's nice to finally have someone who can pose a challenge. Still, you'll find it pretty hard to beat the champ."AR: "Maybe if you didn't use all those FUCKING BLUE SHELLS I WOULD WIN.""Hey, don't be mad cause you don't have my skills."AR: "I DO HAVE YOUR SKILLS. I HAVE ALL OF YOUR SKILLS. YOU'RE JUST A CHEATER.""Someone sounds salty."
>>34633820There's also the other world itself, which honestly doesn't make much sense. Bridgette finds a magic sword and accidentally creates a universe, altering history in the process even though that's supposedly impossible? Then why is there only one known alternate world? Not to mention that we don't know much about where the sword itself came from; we just stole it from some guy, and after that it was just there.
>>34633820I trust Larro to wrap things up well.There's no way that -all- of the plot points could be addressed, so these "footnotes" are satisfying, I feel. It'd take at least a few threads to visit the other dimension to see how things panned out there, and even then there'd be no room for more plot threads -- it'd just be a pointless multi-thread tour.
>>34633921Oh!Will we ever meet RENA'S PARENTS?
>>34633968Who do you think we're going to see?
>>34633948Id say "don't Wrap up anything you don't have to"
>>34633948There's nothing that required it to be a problem-free world without the evil Rena in it. It could have made for a good plot point if it was developed, like many other things. A lack of story to tell shouldn't be a problem, except that there's just so much wasted potential.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>34633921This si the most emotive we've seen Rena. I will support this ship.
>>34633968Hopefully not all threeNeed a hook for Hero Quest 2
>>34633921So... why was she so evil? Is that something that just happened?
>>34634067She was evil because she lost her girlfriend.
>>34634067Well, during the fight with her, the sword was used to cut her off from her voices in her head. So it may be that while Bridgette's death was the tipping point for her becoming evil, the voices in her head (much like how we are) probably spurred her on in that direction even futher.But them and altRena kinda fucked up, so she had to resort to pillaging other dimensions to complete her plan.
>>34634090That explains why she wants revenge, but not why she turned into a creepy sadistic torturer.>captcha: geRapar telelol
>>34633921>>34634045Yesssss>>34634040You misunderstood. I'm saying that if we were to go to the alt dimension and find more plot threads there, it would be a never-ending spiral of things to do. Precisely because there -would- be tons of potential problems and stories there.I don't want Hero Quest to be a shonen-tier infinite abyss.It's fine that some things were completely unaddressed, or relegated to footnotes. My only qualm is that the story wasn't a little more focused to begin with.
>>34634133Well, yes, and logically they should still be around. That could have potential for a good story if it were addressed.
