Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.But damn, its fun.You are Zachary Zelnacki, newly formed Epic. Two months ago, super-powered people rose from the wea-I mean normal. Yeah, normal. You have the ability to control vectors, allowing you to change the speed and direction of any solid object within 15 yards(13 meters). You are also inhumanly tough, able to shrug off small caliber weapons. Finally, and perhaps most important, you are able to absorb powers from dead Epics, if you touch them within ten minutes of death.You witnessed an Epic fight in the local Middle school, and absorbed the power of steel manipulation and regeneration. You then uploaded the video of the battle and bought a Glock. Finally, you check around town for anything of interest. You see a poster about an Epic in Sacramento, read about a trio of Epics that took over New York City, and learned about LA.You went on the road, driving to New York. In Colorado, a blockade forces you to pull over. After killing two men, the militia is able to handcuff you. Put into a large execution machine, open to the public. Who were there in large numbers, unluckily for them. Fearing for your your life, your powers fly out of control. Forming a metal shell around yourself, a rampage ensues. Nearly 20% of the town's population later, you reach your car. You fall into a fitful sleep, full of flashing lights, pleas for mercy, spraying blood, and a feeling of overpowering strength.1/?
You loot the town, breaking into a large house with an RV out front. Within the house, you eat breakfast and meet Brandon. The eight year old Epic joins you, bringing his pets along for the ride. It turns out that his parents were preppers, with bug out bags, a collection of weaponry, and an RV tricked out for going innawoods. The two(four counting the pets) of you drive cross-country, eventually being funneled into Nashville.You escape the KKK controlled city, killing three Epics with the help of Brandon and the RV's heavy weaponry. You absorb two powers, super strength and invulnerability. Outfitted with new powers, you continue to New York. A checkpoint in the Brooklyn tunnel has you sent to a hotel to wait for an officer in the Epic army. You and Brandon order a feast of room service, jumpstarting the American economy.A general in NYC's Epic army recruits you and your "brother" to the corps. Free schooling, room and board, a great 401K, free healthcare, and two weeks paid vacation are included in your benefits package. Brandon will be going to school with other Epic children, then work in the power plant for a few hours a day. You go to the Academy, sitting in the middle of the lecture hall. You team up with three other Epics for a training exercise. Working with them, you capture two flags from other Epics' teams. You and Sydney rush to the art museum, where Sydney captures a filipino Epic with fire powers. You finish the game, winning against Andrew's team. You sit with Nathan, Sydney, and Andrew at lunch. After classes, you go clubbing with your friends and eight year old "brother".>What do?Read the previous threads at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Epic%20QuestNumber .5 is the first one, sorry if thats confusingTOTAL XP: 8002/?
>Base PowersPower Stealing(II): The ability to absorb the last power a dead Epic used. Can hold four powers at once, absorbed powers have sixty percent strength. Must touch dead Epic within twelve minutes of their death.Invulnerability(II): Rifle shots(.223, .30, 5.56) along with buckshot near useless against you. Bruises, but most won't enter the body. Pistols might as well be a guy throwing pebbles at you. Watch out of heavier rounds, though.Vector manipulation(I): You are able to change the vector of objects, making a piece of gravel punch through steel. Blows that you are expecting can be diverted. A range of twenty yards.>Stolen PowersSteel Manipulation(I): The ability to move, bend, liquify, and shape various types of steel. Must use existing steel, range of fifty yards.Regeneration(I): You now heal at a much higher rate, scrapes scabbing over in a minute, deep wounds heal in a day.Super Strength(I): You are above and beyond an Olympic athlete. Lift half a ton, squat half a ton, bench seven hundred pounds. All this, and you never look any bigger than a normal Epic
XP costs for referencePower Stealing(III): 1200. Lets you copy five powers at once, at 70% power at absorption(you have regen&steel at 60% power).Invulnerability(III): 1100. Get shot by a HMG and keep coming. Even large rifle rounds and shotgun slugs just knock the wind out of you. Explosives and tanks are a problem still.Regeneration(II): 400 or absorb another regen power. Makes wounds scab over in a minute and deeper wounds take a few hours to be almost healed. Don't tear your stitches, though, in a day you are fine. Must keep brain intactSteel Manipulation(II): 400 or absorb another metal manipulation power. Lets you control more steel from a farther range. Allows for high limited iron manipulation, but iron control is much weakerVector Control(II): 600. Upgrades max speed(50mph to 60mph). Heavier things and items lightly rooted in the ground can be moved. WIth lots of practice, can allow for a double jump.Super Strength(II): 600. Doubles your power. Lift or squat a ton, bench half a ton. When lifting things, they won't break from having the weight all on two hands.
You wake up, after a night of debauchery, questioning why your ass hurts. Shaking it off, you dress in your supersuit, a grey spandex/steel second skin with gold and silver decorations. You call out a goodbye to Brandon, promising to call if anything happens. You drive your smart car to the Academy, cramped by the size of the frame. You climb from it, parking against the curb. All of your friends are in a group, which you walk over to. Sydney, Artemis, Samantha, and Andrew all blush at the sight of you. You shoot the shit with them, until Professor Messageboard calls the class over to the limos."We'll be diving in, so pick your partners by the time the hatches open." The professor says, then folds up his long legs to get into the leading limousine. The class piles into the limos, six to a car. They start up, driving in a long line.They drive for twenty minutes, then park at the dock. You get out, then stare up at the ship. Airship. Would've been nice to know about that. Everyone climbs the stairway to the ship, then do the familiar dance to find a seat. You park yourself on the left hand side, other Epics moving around you like water against a rock. Your friends sit, starting to pair up.>Who do you want to pair up with?1/2

>>36447976Conquering Long Beach Island. Check it out in google earth or maps
>>36448001what lintel do we got what sorta resistance will we be facing?
>>36447595>What do?why is this there? copy pasta?
Ok so. our job here is to basically kill the defending epics.not only that, once killed we are supposed to harvest their cells for a bonus.we can use two excuses to handle the bodies for power stealing1. making sure they are dead via some mutilation2. cell harvesting duty.
>>36448057>Weather Control>Regeneration>Infinite Ammo>Gifting>Electricity Control>Healing>Regeneration>Replication>Intangibility>Cyrokinesis>IllusionsThose are some of the more notable Epic powers that you know about. Expect 30ish Epics and some normal military to be present. There is 44 Epics in the Academy
>>36448112Yeah, I'll delete it for next thread
>>36448144holy fuck how they get so many?first we pick off there >Illusions with back up from ours that way they cant confuse us.then >Giftingcant have normals being able to tangle with us.those two are our prime targets.
>>36448144Quick question, if we steal a power we already have does it just level up?
>>36448144what do the following power actually do?>Gifting>Replication>>36448241yes.
>>36448256Thanks, Im guessing replication allows us to clone our selves or certain objects.
>>36448270> our selves or certain objects.those are two completely different powers. hence my asking for clarification
>>36448256Gifting lets you give a level of your power to a normal human. You loose that level until the gift is returned or the person you gave the power dies.Replication is the ability to split into multiple clones through mitosis. Owned by the High Epic Mitosis
>>36448294would each clone have our powers?if so he number one priority
>>36448380yes. However, Mitosis is functionally invulnerable, as you have to kill every one of his clone to "kill him.So, who are you pairing up with?
>>36448412already said illusion chickso we got kill all of him to adsorb his power?would having an old corps when the last one dies work ? or would it only work with a 12 minuet dead one or just the last one.?
>>36448528Last one. Clones disintegrate when killed. The primary(last body) will stay where it is
You preposition Samantha to join up, who agrees while blushing heavily. Sydney mutters that the two of you joined together for an hour last night. You spend the rest of the flight talking with each other, drinking coffee provided by a stewardess.An announcement goes out through the airship, calling everyone to follow the blue arrows. That is when you notice the blue arrows imposed in the wall, just starting to light up. The herd of Epics(whats a good name for a group of Epics?) gets up, then follows the lights down. Professor Messageboard is standing next to an elevator-like lift, then shouts over the babbling Epics."We'll be flying down into the island. Take a visor from the racks on the sides, they will outline any Epic without them in red. Kill the reds. Those outlined in blue are friendlies. As we won't be advancing in a line, please keep them on at all times. This isn't a training exercise, so use full force!" The professor shouts. "Ten to a lift, flyers should grab those that can't fly. Good luck."You step up onto a lift, which looks like a trapdoor to you. Once everyone is crowded into the lifts, the professor presses a red button protected by a plastic case. The metal under you rumbles, then starts lowering. You pull the steel from your backpack, forming a thin layer around you. Samantha grabs onto you, the metal strapping her in."SHIIIIITTTTTT!"Half the class screams as you are lowered into the open air, looking down at the very small buildings. All the flyers, including you, jump off the platforms with giant smiles. The wind pushes against your steel, making ripples form on the surface. Samantha is screaming in your ear, which you close off with an extra thick layer of steel. Aw, sweet silence. >Where do you want to land?>Ocean>North tip of the island>South tip of the island>Middle of the town>Write inRoll a 1d100 for the jump

>Middle of townYou fall with your classmates, a wave of deadly forces. A few people release their Firestorms, then swoop away from it. The incendiaries fall faster than humans, plummeting into the town and beach. Balls of fire go up below you, sending thick black smoke into the sky.Then the AA guns open fire.Bright white streaks of light shoot into the assault party, sending them scattering. You roll over, spinning and closing up your metal armor, as one of the guns trains on you. One of the rounds hits, boring through steel and into your leg. Luckily, it misses the bone and the wound starts knitting together. The illusionist behind you puts an image of you falling out of the sky, bleeding profusely, off to your side. The gunner turns away from you, searching for his new target.Note to self, kill every AA gun operator.As you close, you fire vectors against gravity and fold out a parachute of steel to slow you. Samantha eeps slightly as you jerk up. You touchdown on the roof of a building, looking out through the burning town for blue line Epics. You release Samantha, the steel coiling back around your midsection.You draw steel from the street up, into your armor. Two pickaxes form around your hands, glinting in the fire light. The heads up display on your visor says you're on the intersection of Long Beach Boulevard, and Nautilus Drive. A few streets over, a pair of blue Epics are obscured by smoke and burning buildings. South of you, is a red Epic with some large machine surrounding him>What do?
>>36449320sneak close to red use machines to grind him up>Note to self, kill every AA gun operator.
>>36449320Large machine? That means steel. That could be an AA hub too lets go wreck him in a 2 on 1. Have Samantha try to keep us out of sight. Also tell her to keep behind you. If we brought that recoilless HMG she might benefit from having it.
>>36449424You do have it, currently attached to your backpack. Samantha however has an ARX160(assault rifle)
>>36449467Alright so its the save until shit hits fan hold out. I take it both guns are still loud enough to get us found?
"Sam, stay behind me and make me invisible. Can you do that?""Yeah, but not perfectly. People might be able to tell its an illusion.""Fine, try it. I need to get close to an Epic."Samantha nods, then scrunches her forehead in concentration. She nods to you again, signaling that you're cloaked. You walk forward slowly, following the red outline. You step around a corner, trusting the illusion to make you into a tree or something. A large tan machine is in front of you, it's back turned. The red outline is in the mech, controlling it. It's rotary cannon is faced up, firing a stream of bullets at flying Epics. From what you can tell, all of it is made of titanium and aluminum with some ceramic armor plates. No steel, those motherfuckers at Hammerfall are beginning to get on your nerves. The mech rests on a pair of treads, locked in place. Wait, it's treads are starting up again. Shit, it's turning around.>Pic's name is a link to a video of the mech>What do?
>>36449634Tell sam get to cover and stay out of its optics. Close as quickly as possible so we can get out of its firing arcs. Steel lance through the cockpit once we're close enough.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>36449634Roll a 1d100 for combat, I'm always forgetting to say that

(1d100)Forma large steel pole and sweep the legs
>>36450107God fucking..dice+1d100I'm new to /tg/
You pull up to the turning tank, jumping onto it's surface. A giggle leaks out of the cockpit, then a wave of pain goes through your body. You seizure atop the machine, electricity coursing through your metal armor. The metal falls from your body, released from your will. You jitter along the metal, then slide from it's top. The engine's sound goes up in decibels, then the large tracks move forward on your body."FUCK!" You scream out, the treads running over your legs. You beat on the metal weakly, your muscles shorted out by the high voltage. It moves forward, releasing the crushed bone and tortured flesh. Something grabs hold of you, then grabs you around the corner as residual current tenses your muscles. Blood forms a trail to your legs, ruined sausages in grey skins. A camera on the back of the tank sweeps along the ground and roofs, but finds nothing.Samantha releases you, letting you lean against the wooden wall of a house. You rest there for half an hour, legs knitting back into something close to normal. The battle rages around you, bullets kicking up dust and Epics killing indiscriminately. Samantha keeps them away, her illusions defending you from three enemy Epics. Finally, your legs are healed, though still red with blood.I fucking hate Hammerfall.And I will kill that Epic.>what do you want to do?>Its about noon, the display on your screen reads 12:24
>>36450134use the options field anon just below the name.
>>36450136Scope out the scene listen in if we here any fighting. Thank Samantha for the save too. Find an epic any epic that isn't on our side and take the fight to them.

>>36450312ok Is Samantha still kiting those epics with her illusions? If yes steel trap one, if no splurge on metal manipulation cause losing control of it was just embarrassing.
"Thanks for helping out Sam."The mousy girl blushes, "You would've done the same thing for me"(yeah, maybe to get illusions)You press a button on your visor, a small map of the town coming up on it. Looks like most of the fighting has gotten into the middle of town, with the edges being occupied by clusters of Epics. Probably infirmaries. Not everyone is lucky enough to be a regenerator. Ah! Theres one nearby. In Kinsey's Pond. How is that a pond you fucking idiots? It clearly is a cove! Great, Nathan's starting to rub off on you.Either way, you stand up to go there. You're a bit wobbly at first, knees remembering their trauma. Through pure will, you start walking. Samantha follows, helping keep you up when you stumble. You trek between raging fires, pulling a piece of cloth over your mouth to stop the smoke. You pull up steel from the ground, leaving a large path of rubble behind you.You come to a stop on the edge of the pond/cove, hiding behind a dumpster. In the middle of the pond, a tanned man is standing on a block of ice. He's dressed in blue and white, a ring of silver thread around his neck.>What do?
>>36450460Confirm he isn't a friendly first. If he isn'tAnd is in range of your steel lobs some pointies at him while sam distracts him with an illsuions if not have her distract him while you close, either under water is its shallow enough or over water via the board(if she can cloak you if you're over water that'd be great too.
>>36450460Throw a steel javelin at him
You check the visor, making sure its a rival. he's coated in red, so he either lost his visor or is an enemy. You pull a strip of steel from the dumpster, the blue paint breaking into flakes. Samantha nods to you again, cloaking you in illusion.You step out of the cover of the dumpster, the steel forming a long stake. You shoot it forward using a vector, the steel flying over the water. The man looks over at the steel, watching it hit him in the thigh. The force drives him back off the ice, falling into the sea. He rises up on a cushion of ice, struggling to stand on his one leg. He's out of range of all your powers, looking around for his attacker.You float over the water, holding the steel over it. A bullet hits the dumpster, likely a stray round. Still, Samantha drops her illusion over you. The Epic looks back over to you, noticing the giant steel demon. He rips the steel from his leg, his hand bending the steel as he pulls it out. Super strength, or he jerks off a lot.You're almost in range of your steel manipulation, coated in an inch thick armor.>What do?>Roll 1d100
>>36450752>super strengthupgrade, tear him a few holes, impress Samantha with how bloodthirsty we are
>>36450752Charge at him and shoot a blob of metal at his face too suffocate him and blind
>>36450847Are you saying upgrade your super strength, then fight?
>>36450847lol soz i mean kill him to get the upgrade
>>36450752Have her create a distraction close with him either under the water if its shallow enough, or over via board and vectors*she needs to make him look elsewhere while we close.>>36450926He's out of range of our powers anon, and we aren't that good at throwing shit yet.
>>36450926Oh, I though you were going to upgrade SS, then upgrade again by stealing power
>>36450972That would be a good idea, that means we'd need less XP for when we get SS3
>>36450972By your own rules we can't upgrade while in a fight. >>36450993Super strength is all well and good, but it's kinda limited in utility. Also metal manipulation is cheaper and used more.
>>36451021I agree but for the low cost of 600 for effectively a level 3 is worth it though
>>36451094IF he has sstr, we don't know he does.>>36450972Also forget about closing on him use our guns.
>>36451137>IF he has sstr, we don't know he does.>>36450752>his hand bending the steel as he pulls it out. Super strength
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>36450752Hit him with blobs around his face and eyes to blind him and slow him down.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>36450752
A wave of water slams into your face, the steel coating under the force. You force the steel forward, making a thick wedge to divert the water to the sides of your face. You morph the steel on your hand into a series of spikes. They harden, solidifying, then are launched from your wrist. The water stops, as a grunt comes from him. The wedge morphs away to your neck, letting you see the Epic. He's clutching his side, a barbed piece of steel inside him. He rips out again, pieces of flesh hanging off it.The metal liquefies in his hand, creeping down his arm. He claws at the creeping metal, which leaves a path of stripped skin behind. Putting hooks on the inside was a good plan. He falls back into the water, diving into the deep water. You shoot a burst of steel balls into the water, drawing a string of bubbles and red water.>What do you want to do?
>>36451259pull him pull just like a fish send tendrils with hocks down to grab him
>>36451259Does he still have steel in him? If so track him and take a few more shots either with steel or with our HMG. If not get back to land, we can't breath water yet.
Next time we should get an anti-material rifle, Any non invulnerable 4+ epic getting hit by it would have a bad time. It would have gotten us an easy one shot kill on this guy.
>>36451297we want the body we want POWER!
>>36451369Yeah and his body will float to the surface, we don't want him getting close enough to us to get a punch in, that'd hurt a lot.
The steel within the Epic is still within your range, though its soon to escape. The balls, six in number, rapidly expand into hooked balls. The spikes dig into his flesh, growing roots to anchor them even further.You start lifting them up, the man swimming downwards to keep from you. The anchored balls slowly pull him up, as his strength and air fade. He bursts out of the water, red streaming from six different holes. He punches out at you, denting your steel armor. A steel spike grows out of your arm, slowly reaching towards his jugular."Any last words?" You ask the Epic.He spits in your face, blood filled spittle landing on your steel. "Okay. I am sorry for this."The spike shoots forward, nearly decapitating him. The spinal card is severed almost instantly, leaving him head to loll on two flaps of muscle. You draw out the blade, then move him to rest on the ice block. You reach forward, closing his eyes with two fingers.A wave of pain shoots into your brain, burning behind your eyes. A chill goes through the rest of your body, goosebumps rising on your skin. Hair-like tentacles grow from your armor, shaking in the sunlight. "Be at peace. Nothing can hurt you now." You say as you close his eyes.>Super Strength(II) absorbed!Lift or squat a ton, bench half a ton. When lifting things, they won't break from having the weight all on two hands.You fly over to the alley, touching down next to Samantha.>What do you want to do?
>>36451601There were 2 regenerators on the island that aren't us, right?Maybe we should buy regen II and then go try to find them to get up to regen IV ourself.
>>36451601Make sure she's alright then keep looking for enemies. Also check the radio and make sure there aren't any snags or big battles that we could assist with.
>>36451640I'd be willing if we get 800 exp to up regen and steel manipulation cause we use both and they are damn useful.Captcha: arterial Itealit
>>36451640There are a few known regenerators that are on the islandYou also got 150XP from battling if you want to spend it>Total XP850
>>36451708Regen and steel get them up to full level 2s
>>36451708Regen I'd like to get. I'm kinda indifferent to upping steel right now, but I'm not really opposed to it if someone else wants it.
>>36451733I'll second it.>>36451708What level would we have to get steel to to let us fuck with the iron in someone's blood, Magneto-style?
>>36451743The extra fine control on it and extended range would be invaluable.
>>3645177310 to use it on normals. 14 to use on all Epics. For some reason, Epic powers work less on other Epics compared to normals
Try to find some of the other allied Epics, strength in numbers.
What about getting vectors to level 2?
>>36451848I'm not even sure why we would. Calamity nerfed it so hard that it's damn near worthless. It's not even vector manipulation, it's actually a fairly limited telekinesis. On top of that, it's more expensive than other powers.
>>36451848>upgrades max speed of vectored objects from 50mph to 60mphwoo...
>>36451898... It might get better soon
>>36451848its not that great of a power
>>36451930The mechanics are inherently shit. Any TK style power that limits based on speed is horrible and should never be gotten.
>>36451930At the level we use it steel and regen are more pressing and much cheaper. We'll up vector eventually just the other are much more useful now.
Fair enough vectors are shit, my bad
So you guys want to lock down Super strength and Steel Manipulation?Regeneration(II): 400 or absorb another regen power. Makes wounds scab over in a minute and deeper wounds take a few hours to be almost healed. Don't tear your stitches, though, in a day you are fine. Must keep brain intactSteel Manipulation(II): 400 or absorb another metal manipulation power. Lets you control more steel from a farther range. Allows for high limited iron manipulation, but iron control is much weakerTotal cost is 800XP
>>36451998>So you guys want to lock down Super strengthWhat? We wanted to buy Regen
>>36451998Yeah buy regen and steel
>>36451998Steel and regen not sstr
>>36452011>>36452046Sorry, don't know why I keep mixing those to up
>>36451998What would level III regen and steel do and how much would they cost?
>>36452100Np we just wanted to make sure.
Steel Manipulation and Regeneration locked inTotal XP: 50You patch into the radio, listening for any news. A large plot of land has been captured, and is being set up as a base of operations. It's close by, on the corner of W 73rd Street and Long Beach Boulevard. A few Epics are crying out for pickup and healing. You open a private channel with your nearest friend, Andrew. No homo."Hey, wanna meet up at the FOB? Strength in numbers, and Samantha can't do much damage with her powers.""Sure, give me a moment to get over there. Sydney's off handling a few normies with HMGs.""See you there.""Yeah."You notify Samantha, who nods. You start walking to the Forward Operating Base, looking out for any Epics in red. Nothing attacks you, though you do see a few fleeing men in combat rigs and carrying AK-248s.You walk out onto the grass, wiping blood from your legs. Andrew and Sydney are sitting in a gazebo, drinking from their water bottles and eating MREs. You call out to them, making the air around Andrew go white with frost."Sup Andrew, Sydney. Can't be assed to help us out, can you?""You have it under control. We were hunger anyway." Sydney calls out across the lawn.You sit next to Sydney, and pull out a MRE of your own. Taking a few sips from your water bottle, you enjoy the prepackaged spaghetti and meatballs.>Want to say anything?>After that, Where do you want to go?
>>36452279Those rationsSearch for more enemy epics we are on a roll and have a power slot to fill in
>>36452393I'd rather go for regenerators or invulns so as to boost up our own powers. Level III in those is better than some new lv I
>>36452424Well we can run into them too. Also it'd be nice if we found out our weakness
>>36452279Ok I really hate mechs, especially mechs with an epic pilot fucker nearly killed me and I want his head. Also Guys remind me never to try out whatever concoction Nate brews up again I can't remember last night past the dance battle. Hope I didn't try to hump the statue of liberty again. I know something happened because y'all are acting weird and blushing and my ass was sore when I woke up.>look for that fucking mech. Also any with powers we might want to level or steal
>>36452279The weather control dude might be a cool power to go for.Making it stormy as fuck when we fight could be pretty cool.
>>36452499Last night didn't happen, fuck you.
>>36452606Let's focus on powers that can help us in battle rather than look cool
>>36451821What rank would it be to sense people by the iron in their blood? Still 10/14 or would it come earlier, just without the ability to control?

WIth lots of practice, can allow for a double jump.>max speed(50mph to 60mph)Is that max speed for EVERYTHING he vectors or is it just the max speed for when he uses the power on himself to go faster?
>>36452803Oh himself I'd assume
>>36452803Pretty sure that means the max he can do on everything.
You patch into the radio again, and are greeted by a plethora of screams, cries of hep, and people demanding backup. Its kinda hard to tell from the massive amount of voices, but it seems its ten Epics against six enemy Epic who are supported by mechs and tanks. You motion for everyone to patch into it, sending your group into silence. The radio keeps breaking in and out, a large storm cloud pouring down rain in the battlefield. "We should probably go help them," Andrew says. Everyone finishes up their food, you taking a final bite of blueberry cobbler. The steel armor reforms, having been dropped while you were eating. Sydney grows a coat of crystal, shimmering blue on her torso.You start on the way, pulling up more steel than previously possible from the ground. As you near the battlefield, a wide strip of beach and a part of the town, the sounds of fighting start to fill the air. Rain does as well, pattering on the sand. A loud crack rocks the air, at the same time a lightning bolt strikes the beach. Your close to the beach, on El Union Avenue. A line of tanks is on the beach, firing streams of tracers past the houses. You can't tell where or what they're shooting at, though it likely isn't a defender.>What do?>Roll 1d100
>>36452882Lets try my vectors on the planet, oh shit i killed everyone
>>36452899Are the tanks steel?
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>36452921gotta have bites made of it rip them apart
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>36452899Send out some steel to attach to the tanks and mechs and jut up into the air like a lightning rod so that they get zapped.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>36452899Get us hidden by the illusions and charge the tanks
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>36452899If the tanks are steel Cannibalize them for weapons.
The tanks are like the ones from early in the thread. No steel, and with electric surfaces
>>36452987>with electric surfacesWhat? Do you mean insulated?
>>36453013Meaning they shock you if you touch them.>>36452987Then we stick steel to them so the lightning which is already drawn towards high metal and electricity anyways hits them. Also have Sam cloak make us attack from a seemingly different direction. Then draw our guns and start shooting.
>>36452987then plug barrels and rip and tear with spears
>>36452987In that case we can't touch them, so launch our steel javelins at the tanks while the rest of our group with ranged powers to attack them.
>>36453013Its conductive, with a separate power source to let it shock anything that lands on it. Hammerfall inc. is a real asshole like that
Get Sydney to see if she can cancel the electric field with her water bending
You lift as many pieces of steel from the road as possible, making them into long and thin spears. Fifty yard long, you shoot a rod into the closest tank.It cuts through the aluminum plates, before getting stuck in something. You spread out the bottom, letting it worm it's way into the crevasses in the machinery. You run behind the tanks, cloaked in Sam's illusions. You repeat the process in three of the other tanks,making it look like a series of pencils stuck in erasers. A massive boom goes out, as lightning forks across the sky. It's drawn to the rods, coursing down into the tanks. They light up as the energy hits, a series of pops resounding through the air as the bullets go off. All of the stalk bearing tanks sink back on their haunches, smoke pouring out of their cockpits.That leaves two tanks still alive, and five Epics attacking your class in front of them. Two of your class are dead on the ground, from bullet wounds or fried by lightning. The storm is starting to abate, as the Epic controlling it doesn't want to fry any more tanks.>What do?>Roll 1d100
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>36453286get to our class mates quick as we plug the barrels of the tanks and slice the meck in half
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>36453286Similar trick.Use steel to wire the tanks together so they zap eachother.
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>36453334You realize that won't work right?
>>36453286well after we take care of things we should form stell caskets for the fallen so we can take them home and pay our respects.
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>36453286Try to wrap one or more of the epics in the enemy group up with steel, then extend a tendril from the steel to one of the tanks so that it zaps them.
>>36453327I like plugging the barrels.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>36453286Steel lances into the tanks finish them off then work on the epics.
>>36453549The lances got stopped in the armor the first time and the tanks only died because lightning hit the lances.
>>36453576Then we bend them to immobilize the tanks without touching them. If the treads and barrels can't move they are sitting ducks.
You extract the steel poles from the tanks, letting them pool together in a ball the size of your car. You creep around the side of one of the tanks, the metal above the front of the barrels. You drop it down, letting the steel splatter on the tank. It creeps into the rotating cannon, pushed against the sides by centripetal force. The men inside fire off one of the blocked barrels, the bullet hitting steel and stopping.The inside of the tank is filled with combustion gases, seeking the path of least resistance. One of the crew members is able to open the hatch, as he tries to crawl out you stab him through the eye. You pull all of the steel off the tank, reforming the ball.A retreating Epic, attacked by Andrew and Sydney, stumbles into your range. A lasso of steel grabs hold of her, pulling her into the line of fire for the remaining tank. She screams loudly, the bullets stopping as they enter her body. Invulnerability, or maybe telekinesis. You manipulate the woman so her head is facing the barrels, tracing a line of blood as you turn her.Her skull shatters after a few shots, grey matter splattering over the tank. You force steel into their barrels, giving a repeat performance of your last killing.>What do?>Roll 1d100
>>36453759Move to make sure she'd dead and can't regen. Since the tanks are dead get into the fight focus on stragglers and Those out of cover.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>36453759The steel blob is the size of a car. Reform it around her and bring her over to us to try to steal her power stealthy like. If it's TK, we can just ditch it for something else. If it's invuln, then cool we get a free upgrade.
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>36453759confirm kill rip out heart, then finish off the meck
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>36453801>>36453759Also forgot dice
>>36453826God damnit twice in the same thread.
>>36453759Make sure she's dead and try to remember where the body is so we can powersteal her after we deal with the other epics around here.
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>36453879>>36453759
>>36453826Good thing we got regen 2...
>>36453972Good thing we got some more exp to burn if we need too as well. I should stop rolling in this thread I've gotten 2 1s on a d100
>>36454008Never roll again
>>36454184After the 1 I just pulled in ImprovAizen I'd have to say I agree the dice hate me.
You take the steel from the tank, drawing it out of the tank barrels. You send the metal blob to encase the girl, then move her to y our side. The metal melts off of her, leaving her broken body on the wet sand. You reach down to touch her, pretending to be fixing her hair.A rush of heat burns into your eyes, chills running down your body. With tears prickling your eyes, you stand back up.>Absorbed InvulnerabilityGet shot by a HMG and keep coming. Even large rifle rounds and shotgun slugs just knock the wind out of you. Explosives and tanks are a problem still.You stand back up, leaving the dead girl to rest on the wet sand beach. You push back your brown hair, which has been stuck to your forehead for the last minute.Then the mech shoots you with an anti-tank round.You fly back, slamming into the side of the disabled tank. Your stomach spills out, ribs shattered by the round. Metal forms around you, your regeneration works overtime to repair the damage. You wheeze, feeling your lung punctured by a rib. The bone slowly dissolves, as a new one forms to replace it. As the ground shakes, you jerk your head to the side.A titanium foot slams into the place you once were, before you vectored away. You shoot up, a metal shell protecting you. You land on a building, hiding behind a chimney. You hide there for two hours, as the battle goes on. Your ribs knit back together and your stomach scabs over and finally heals.A black clad Epic, outlined in red light, jumps up onto your roof. "Hello there. Hiding like a little girl, huh? I'll put you down then.">What do?>Roll 1d100
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>36454233Vectors into both of his ears to try to pop his eardrums and kill his balance. Then go for the steel decapitation

Rolled 67 (1d100)>>36454305then the only reply is "so tired I just got done buggering your mum and the old slag just don't stop"
"Just steeling myself for the next fight," You pun, the metal forming your armor once more. Fingers of steel slither up your body, knitting together into a steel suit over your skin. You hit him with two vectors at once, his head rocking to the sides as they hit. He stumbles back, clutching at his head. He shakes it off, then lifts his hands. "Its been a blast, but I must be going," A purple light pools in his hand, inky light that takes in more light than it gives off. He fires it into you armor, a metal plate forming on your arm. It atomizes the steel, losing all control of the hit metal. Its gone, thats the only way to describe it. You launch the man into the air, followed by a steel spike. He vaporizes it as well, leaving nothing.>What do?
>>36454611Fletchette barrage, small silver of lethal intent, he can't get them all.
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>36454611spread it all out constant small barge form more than 3 points around his body.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>36454611Ok, looks like we found the one enemy that vectors are better against than steel manip.Try to get small pieces of steel to jab him from his blind spots. Continually vector him in the eyes and ears and throat to unsteady him. Maybe try to vector pressure against his neck to knock him out and then steel him to death.
Rolled 80 (1d100)Create a barrage of small steel balls and launch them, then attempt to vector them to even higher speeds
>>36454760better yet vector him into them

You form steel spikes, each the size of a bee, coving all of your upper body. The spikes come off your body, a cloud condensing of steel spikes. The spikes shoot up, curving in four different paths to his body.A coating of purple covers his body, but not before a spike stabs into his leg. The rest are burned up by the purple light. He starts falling, and you push him into the building. He phases through the building's ceiling, leaving a man-shaped hole. Beams of the light burn through the ceiling, forcing you to jump off the building.You land on the street, a cloud of asphalt chips shooting up. Arm-length spikes of steel are fired into the building, through the plate glass window. He cries out inside the building, everything in ten yards evaporating in purple light.The man is in a deep crater, his arms glowing purple. You cry out to him, firing a cloud of spikes at the same time."So tired I just got done buggering your mum and the old slag just don't stop. Are you gonna die like a bitch, you limey faggot?"He shoots beams of the dark light at you, burning holes into the nearby building.>What do?>Roll 1d100
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>36455100That steel is still in his leg, right? And there should be some more in him somewhere. Worm it up through his body, into his chest cavity, and then make it go wild like a blender.
>>36449835>Burn XP?wait, why?does a crit fail overrule a crit success? usually they just cancel each other.
>>36455146The QM rolled the crit success for the npc.Critfail(us) vs critsuccess(enemy) = not fun.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>36455100Use the metal in him to mess him up enough to make him lose concentration, them splat him.>>36455146Calamity's roll was a crit success, meaning it sucks for us. Crit fail made it worse.
>>36455100Send a little bit of steel underground to pop out underneath him and stab his back
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>36455100
Rolled 85 (1d100)Make the steel become a small blender in his leg, tearing it off
>>36453055a steel javalin will not penetrate a tankbut, we could flip the tanks upside down using steel manip at range. then they become useless.but still recoverable for loot later
>>36455330Kinda late anon
>>36455047oh please let it be one of those two.
>All this fighting>Hours wasted restingI can't help but think of how much we could grab if we were just sneaking about instead.i really wish we would steal invisibility power soon.
Rolled 95 (1d100)"Oi, fuck you. You gonna beg mi to kill you when I'm done!" He fires another beam, burning a long line in the building. It collapses, a dust cloud billowing out of the surf shop.You force the steel in his leg up, making it into a miniature sawblade. It spins around in his leg, cutting muscle and tendon. He collapses, his right leg a bloody mess. He forces his hand against the blade, purple light glowing. The blade vaporizes, his leg undamaged by the light.He fires a beam at you, a glancing blow that destroys your left-hand's fingers. The bleeding stops within a few seconds, slowly regrowing the fingers. You fire more blades, along with shooting a piece of steel into the ground.As he shoots down the spikes from on his back, a burrowing blade stabs his side. He destroys it to, leaving a hole in his side.>What do>Roll 1d100
>>36455463oh hell, really calamity?
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>36455463Can we use vectorfuckery to suction the blood out of his mangled leg and the hole in his side so as to hurry him to sweet unconsciousness?
>>36455463retreat and watch him from a distance. he is heavily injured and bleeding. he will die of bloodloss soon. unless he gets treatment. and that would most likely distract him enough that he won't have his powersmeanwhile, we get to grab more steel
Rolled 62 (1d100)Try the tiny pellet trick again, see if we can lodge another piece of metal in him.
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>36455463Grab Hmg, Perforate him.
>>36455503oh hey! vectors! does his purple shit stop vectors? if not, vector smash vis mangled leg into another part of his body (since it would vaporize any ground)
I really want to steal this guys disintegration beams. Seems like a damn good power.
>>36455463instead of going all out. toss the occasional tiny pellet at him from afar. that forces him to keep his shield up at all timehe didn't have his shield up when we started, why? it must be very tiring to maintain over time.Thus it becomes a battle of attrition. tossing small pebbles costs us little, shield costs him much.
>>36455584its very high level. Level 8, to be exactYou walk up to the lip of the crater, looking down on the shattered form of the Epic. You punch down at him, vectoring his leg into the ground. He cries out, a bloodcurdling scream. He fires a beam at you, burning away your right arm at the elbow.A halo of steel forms around his body, a spinning blade. He shots his beam at it, burning it until all that remains is a dollar bill sized blade over his body. You shoot it down into his body, unknowing of where it'll land. Judging from his string of profanity, it was near his crotch. A series of spikes shoot into him, most vaporized by a sheath of purple light. The first lands in his upper arm, followed by the rest burning up in purple light.>What do>Roll 1d100
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>36455800Use the imbedded metal to tear him up while you draw your HMG to put him to rest.
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>36455800Try to get the spike in his arm into his chest cavity.Use the one near his crotch to rip up his femoral artery.Shoot him with our gun while we do it.
>>36455800keep the pressure up vector his head back and forth try and scramble his brains. and never relent on the ever flowing blocks of steel at his head.
>>36455800Vector his throat while using the steel inside him to blenderize him.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>36455800>>36455853rolling
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>36455800This guy just won't die
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>36455800Tear him up with the steel in him, while forming blades with our fractal edges in a whirling cloud around him, so he'll have to take his attention from something. Drop our armor if we need to, it's not helping against him anyway.
Please give me a pun for the attack, I feel a distinct lack of puns in this thread
>>36455916"Easy there mate, don't go falling to pieces on me."
>>36455800Calamity our armor is equivalent to what in term of invulnerability?
>>36455916"Doesn't losing just tear you up inside?"
>>36455916"I'd give you a hand, but, well it seems you already took it."Then wave our stump at him.Not exactly a pun, but still a terrible joke
>>36455916I know this is painful but I'm still Ironing out the kinks of this attack. You'll just have to steel yourself for the pain. Take it as the cost of metalling in my affairs.
>>36455948Depends on the attack. Energy attacks aren't stopped as well by your armor, though making it when higher levels lets you reflect energy away like a disco ball. Physical attacks, level one
>>36456010So it barely sops pistol shots? Lame. Yeah we need to drop it right now so we can blitz him.
>>36455916stumped for words?no worries, I steel win.
>>36456032>so we can blitz himNigga what. This dude has a massive radial disintegration attack. We don't want to be anywhere near him until we've ground him into a fine slurry.
>>36456047I meant with the steel from our armor. More steel means more he has to disintegrate.
>>36456078he so far has been going through our steel armor like its nothing, he just disintegrated our arm because people voted we get closer to him and give him a better shot instead of staying far away and letting him bleed
>>36455800plan! a fake out!step out of his line of sight, then have our armored form charge him. only it isn't our armored form at all, its just an empty husk we are manipulating from afar.
>>36456107I suggested we drop the armor IF we aren't strong enough to hold it and make like a food processor around him.
>>36456107A barrage the more we have to work with the more he has to work and keeps bleeding but yeah step back some we've got a lot of range with steel 2 now.
>>36456128yea, also >>36455588the problem is that /tg/ is not that smart. most of the votes were "rip and tear" despite the fact that it has gotten us repeatedly anally rekt
>>36456157It's getting him worse. We lost a few fingers? Oh well they grow back. An arm? Inconvenient, but we're using ranged steel manipulation for all of our damage anyway.Purple disintegration man is sitting in a hole missing a leg and bleeding out while we've got superficial wounds.
>>36456205Still a direct shot to the head is going to kill us no questions asked.
>>36456205he was bleeding to death from the legwound before we lost the arm to what amounted to "rip and tear" votes.especially considering several alternatives were madealso, you are so blaize about losing an arm, but even with our regen we spent 2 damn hours healing a gut shot from a muggle tankwe are by no mean a god.
Is this right for what our powers are at now?Power Stealing(II)Invulnerability(III)Vector manipulation(I)Steel Manipulation(II)Regeneration(II)Super Strength(II)
>>36456249Pretty much yes. Vector or power steal is likely going to be our next bought upgrade.
Your armor melts off of you, useless shit it is. It takes the form of a dome of spikes, floating independent of each other. One spike digs under the ground, independent of the others."know this is painful but I'm still Ironing out the kinks of this attack. You'll just have to steel yourself for the pain. Take it as the cost of metalling in my affairs." The blades shoot inwards, stabbing at the ruined form of the Black clad Epic. The ones in the air are vaporized by the Epic.Then the worm shoots into his head. The back of his head disappears, the skull becoming an empty space with blood seeping into the ground. You fire more steel into him, separating his head from his neck.You walk down into the crater, looking down on his body. You grab hold of his head, feeling the familiar spike of heat in your eyes.>Absorbed Disintegration Beam(I)The ability to produce energy that can disintegrate flesh, stone, and metal. At level one, touch based.You climb from the large crater, having to vector to get over the sheer sides. >What do?
>>36456272Check radio for where our friends are and where the fight is. Maybe say you took care of mister black.
>>36456272form a temporary arm out of steel, and pull our armor back on. Hunt around for our friends.
>>36456272jump on the radio find a friendly healer then get a new arm
>>36456272Since it's absorbed at 60% strength shouldn't it be at about level 6 or so?
>>36456268i really would prefer if we kept upgrading power steal.we had such a glorious opportunity here. so much powers to steal, so many levelups to our powers we could have acquired. arg.>>36456272hunt epics, preferably freshly slainavoid fighting the normals, your goal is epics dammit, epics!if you are lucky, you can hear about a regenerator or some other specific goodie on the radio that will give us an upgrade and target that.also, why are we lone wolfing it? we did a lot better when we worked as a team, so meet up your team again and work together
>>36456272>>Absorbed Disintegration Beam(I)>The ability to produce energy that can disintegrate flesh, stone, and metal. At level one, touch based.So, really, it's not much of a beam right now. More that it just lets us coat a hand in the disintegration energy? Still pretty cool. Probably will be useful as fuck. Sneak up behind a guy, disintegration finger right into the back of the skull.Try to regroup with the people that we were with before we ran into purple zappy guy.>>36456367Not much point honestly. It'd just impede the regen.>>36456386Why? It'd just take attention from the people that actually have life threatening injuries right now. Zach has regen and it's just an arm. They'd (rightly) tell him to fuck off.
>>36456268power steal would be best imo since it would increase the effectiveness of any powers we steal, plus we will be able to steal more powers and become more overpowered. Once we get to 100% effectiveness we will be able to do some serious damage.>>36456272hunt epics with any powers similar to ours so that way we can keep upgrading our powers
>>36456400that is 60% of a level 1 power. not 60% of the level he had.At level 6, our power steal will let us hold 7 stolen powers, will steal powers at 100% of level 1. and will let us choose one of the two last powers the dead epic used to steal.above that, who knows, it can only get better.
>>36456386our arm will grow back.>>36456400No, we always start at level 1
>>36456400>>36456444also, upgrading power steel for that extra 10%p retroactively upgrades all stolen powers.
>>36456413we can wait>>36456452not before the fighting is over
>>36456272What XP are we at right now anywat?
>>36456531But we should have gotten some more from 2 epics kill and an armored column kill.
You switch on the radio on your visor, using your remaining arm. Its close to silent, except a repeating message."All Epics report to the FOB. Switch to channel two for frontline fighters. All Epics report to the FOB. Switch to channel two for frontline fighters. All Epics report to the FOB. Switch to channel two for frontline fighters. All Epics report to the FOB. Switch to channel two for frontline fighters. All Epics report to the FOB. Switch to channel two for frontline fighters.">What do?
>>36456553don't forget absorbing power. every time we absorb power we get XP, IIRC 150 per absorption, presumably even if we discard a power because of lack of slots.
>>36456579When they say "frontline fighters", do they mean people that are currently on the frontline or is it a classification of epics based on their powerset?
>>36456579switch to chanel 2is FOB the same as "field of battle"?I say we run around looking for fresh epic corpses or dead and dying epics.oh hey, I just had an idea, if we check up on the healers, we might be able to steal the powers of a freshly dead ally, I am not saying kill any. but check out on the corpses.
>>36456579Move towards the FOB we aren't frontline but check the feed anyways just in case. Also ping them to let them know we took out the disintegration guy.
>>36456629Why? Disintegration is likely a better power than what we'll get off random dead bodies and we don't have any open slots.
>>36456475>not before the fighting is overthats why we make a steel one for now
>>36456631oh hey, bragging about our achievements is important.hey, i bet those glasses record everything we see for analysis. so we should keep that in mind that not to let them "see" us using a power they don't know or be too blatant about the power theft.One way to excuse it I think is if we took trophies, like a scalp or an ear or a tooth.
>>36456626People on the front line>>36456629Forward Operating BaseSo, go to the frontline, or FOB?
>>36456678We have any ideas where our buddies are? Regroup with them. If not possible hit Fob let command know mister deathbeam is dead.
>>36456678FOB to regroup, and let our blood regrow, at least. Let's make a steel arm for now, and avoid the medics, in case one of them can read powers when they heal.
>>364566531. assuming it replaces disintegration2. every time we absorb a power we get stronger (more XP).3. if we absorb a power we already have, it upgrades it. there are plenty of invulnerables, super strenghers, and regenerators around to loot power from.
>realizing that we sorta ditched Sam somewhere.
>>36456678head to fob check other Chanel first see if we can help anyone near by
>>36456734yea, i was wondering about that, isn't she also a healer? and we lost her somewhere around where we lost our intestines and spent 2 hours regenerating. hope she still lives.
>>36456731We have a limit to how many powers we can absorb. We need to upgrade power stealing to get more. And we have no in character reason to drop any of the ones we have.
>>36456760illusionist, Artemis is the healer
>>36456763>We have a limit to how many powers we can absorbWRONG!we have a limit on how many powers we can have simultaneouslythat is completely different.Also, even if it was true you COMPLETELY FAILED to address any of my points>And we have no in character reason to drop any of the ones we have. its almost like this is literally NOT what I said.Also, you don't know what power we will come across, there are plenty of powers out there that we would gladly drop super strength or disintegration for.
>>36456731>1. assuming it replaces disintegrationI don't have to assume shit. We can only hold 4 powers currently. It has to replace disintegration because we told the higher ups about regen/super strength/steel manipulation and suddenly losing one of them would be a major problem>2. every time we absorb a power we get stronger (more XP).And? We can go after living enemies to make sure we get good powers instead of going for random corpse shit.>3. if we absorb a power we already have, it upgrades it. there are plenty of invulnerables, super strenghers, and regenerators around to loot power from.And you want to scavenge randomass corpses so that we have no idea what we're getting. It probably won't be something we already have, and the second it isn't something we already have, bye bye disintegration.
>>36456815>we have a limit on how many powers we can have simultaneously>that is completely different.You're a moron. It's the exact same thing. We can only have 4 stolen powers. Stealing more will overwrite the ones we currently have.
>>36456815No, we have 0 IN CHARACTER reasons to drop the powers we have. Your XP reason is metagaming. quit it.
>>36456815>there are plenty of powers out there that we would gladly drop super strength or disintegration forNot likely. And we don't know that we get to choose which one we lose. We could lose steel, and then our cover would be blown.
>>36456815All but Disintegration are kayfabe powers we kinda need them for cover not to be blown. We're good with what we have for now.
>>36456826>I don't have to assume shitYes you do. you are assuming it replaces disintegration.option a: we choose what get replacedoption b: we can choose to discard the new power once we see what it is (since we don't know until we try)option c: it replaces the weakest power (disintegrationoption d: it replaces the newest power (disintegrationoption e: it replaces the oldest power (regeneration)etc... there are a fuckton of possibilities, you don't know which will happen. you are guessing it means "drop disintegration".Ideally, we start absorbing it, and if it is not an upgrade to an existing power (ex: regen, invulnerability, etc) then we can choose whether to drop it or replace a power of our choice.if it replaces a power automatically on its own. well we better damn find out about it ASAP.>It has to replace disintegration because we told the higher ups about regen/super strength/steel manipulation and suddenly losing one of them would be a major problem>It has to work in a way that doesn't cause political issuesreally? so shit always goes your way?>And? We can go after living enemies to make sure we get good powers instead of going for random corpse shit.We get XP regardless. its about 150XP per corpse regardless of who killed it. and regardless of what power it has/gives>And you want to scavenge randomass corpses so that we have no idea what we're getting.We have no way of knowing with living enemies either, the typical epic has up to 5 different powers. we only get one.>It probably won't be something we already haveinvulnerability, strength, and regen are common as shit
>>36456899>Not likely. And we don't know that we get to choose which one we lose. We could lose steel, and then our cover would be blown.its almost like I EXPLICITLY SAID that we need to find out NOW while the loss isn't catastrophic. or would you rather accidentally lose steel manip 10 in the future because of punching someone to death?>>36456869>No, we have 0 IN CHARACTER reasons to drop the powers we havewe have EVERY reason IN CHARACTER to drop the powers we have if we find better ones.For example, people were fucking jizzing themselves over the duplication ability.Also, way to go ignoring the whole "levelup existing powers if you steal them" as well as every argument actually made.Also,>Assuming growth is not in character and is a totally meta thing.way to go assuming. He FEELS his powers growing every time he steals from someone. and he knows from vector he can get better with practice. so "practice" power stealing to get better with it makes sense.
>>36456943You do realize that if they find us out we are deader than dead right? Pretty much any other epic would come after us on principle for our natural power set. also power steal only nets 50 kills net 100
>>36456861>You're a moron. It's the exact same thingNo it isn't you retard>Limit on how many powers we can absorb = Touch the coprse to attempt to absorb power. Nothing happens, you are at limit>Limit on how many powers you can hold = Touch the corpse, feel the power come in... too much to hold, must discard a power (either by choice or at random)completely different things. And the fact is, we have seen ourselves grow better with vectors via simple practice, no reason to not think we can grow better at power theft via practice
>>36457012>because of punching someone to deathIt doesn't auto go off. We have to try to steal their power
>>36457012>we have EVERY reason IN CHARACTER to drop the powers we have if we find better ones.That's not what you're advocating, retard. You're saying that we should go touch random dead bodies to steal random powers and potentially fuck us over if the mechanics don't follow your (incredibly unlikely) dream scenario.
Calamity if it isn't spoilery could you clear up this power steal debate?
>>36457013>You do realize that if they find us out we are deader than dead right?Yes, I do. do you have an actual argument to make?Depending on what and how we find out now, we might still cover it up.unless we lose a random power and lose out steel manip, we can recover from it. potentially without being found out.>also power steal only nets 50 kills net 100even if that was true. there are about 100 epics fighting and dying here. so that is ~5000 XP worth of corpses.
>>36457040By your own admission, you believe that the course of action you want to take has a 33% chance of doing NOTHING, 33% chance of fucking us over, and a 33% chance of us replacing a power (disintegration, most likely) with a random power that may be better but will probably be worse.I want you to just stop and think about that for 2 seconds.
>>36457112>Implying they all die>Implying we could touch them all>Implying we wouldn't raise suspicion>Implying we get exp from power we do not absorb
>>36457112>so that is ~5000 XP worth of corpses.that's metagaming. stop it
>>36457093>if the mechanics don't follow your (incredibly unlikely) dream scenario.this is hilarious, utterly hilariousthis dream scenario was suggested by the anon I originally argued with who said it will be replacing disintegration.I am the one who said that it could end up replacing something valuable out of our controlthis "extremely unlikely scenario" is what I challenged and what 4 anons called me a retard for challenging.If it wasn't for me, you retards would still be sure that we could just with 100% replace disintegration with any stolen power. and that there is no chance at all of it being a roll or the oldest power or some other mechanism.
>>36457183Nobody could be this stupid. I refuse to believe that you're not trolling.
Guy, guys, guys let Calamity weigh in before we go full out waifu wars with powers ok?
>>36457137>By your own admission, you believe that the course of action you want to take has a 33% chance of doing NOTHING, 33% chance of fucking us over, and a 33% chance of us replacing a power (disintegration, most likely)No, you are just a retard who can't read. I am saying there is NO CHANCE of it doing nothing.The anon I talked to WROTE that it will do nothing, then claimed it will replace disintegration. Contradicitng himself, because he couldn't into englishI am telling him that what he WROTE is "it does nothing" even though he didn't mean it, explaining to him that his english is wrong. The fucker called me a retard and said there is no difference between what he said and what I said. Because he couldn't comprehend the different between limit on absorption and limit of powers held.>>36457151>Have the power to absorb power from corpses>Suggest absorb corpses>That is metagaming, stop itNo, it isn't. its totally logical behavior for someone who isn't a retard and has a broken ass ur power.
>>36457272Yep. You're just trolling. Got ya.
>>36457265>Nobody could be this stupid.And yet, here you are, being this stupid.>>>>>Hurr it always replaces disintegration>>>>me: No, it could replace anything, you need to figure it out>>>Hurr, you retard it replaces disintegration>>me: No see, it can do A, or B, or C, or D, or E..>Hurr, you are so retarded for suggesting it always replaces disintegration. how can you be so retarded? obviously it does the option most harmful from those you obviously didn't suggest
Suddenly the city in flames in the background of Op picture looks all the more fitting.
Letting the map on the visor guide you, you start walking to the FOB. Its quite a bit in front of where you destroyed the tanks, actually on a separate island. Flat island's the name. Very original, from the makers of door stop and oranges.There it is! You walk across the water, a piece of steel beneath your feet. Once setting foot on the island, you can understand the name. It's flat. And its an island. Rows of tents are set up, with one large tent serving as the mess hall. On a wooden board, is a list of bunks. Cool, you're bunking with Nathan and Andrew. Tent C8.You walk over to the mess hall, arm slowly regrowing. You get in line with a lot of the other Epics, waiting to be served. Steak with baked potatoes and a nice salad. You sit in one of the tables, tearing into the food. Nathan sits down next to you, then Sydney on your other side. Being armless is a bit annoying, so you form a steel one out of forks.Nathan and Sydney look like shit, hair ripped out or burned off, a large scab on Nathan's arm, and Sydney with what looks like a regrown ear.>What do you want to say?>Unless you absorb the power, no XP>When you are full, there is a vote what to replace>Can't read through all this, kinda happy that people are so invested in this quest>Put questions in greentext so I can answer them quickly
>>36457272Please stop, we're just trying to enjoy our story. Our character is trying to be a dependable Epic, until we're strong enough that we don't need to pretend. And that means leveling our power steal & other useful stuff. So yes, let's go steal invuln and regen and shit, but there aren't any other powers in the list that we want more. And it's a huge risk to try taking them and risk losing the powers we're known for. Minmaxing our xp gain isn't the point of this quest.
>>36457357Thank you for Weighing in Calamity.>Sorry for disappearing guys, took an anti-tank rifle to the gut, had to hole up to heal. Then some asshole with a cockney accent and a disintegration beam jumped me. You guys ok? Seen any of the others getting gut shot sucks ass.
>>36457363Did you miss the part about typical epics having upwards of 5 powers and that we don't chose which power to take?>Try to steal regen>Get a different power>Lose random power>Be fucked>No easy source to reproduce your powerset from (eg, an island full of fighting epics)>Please stop, we're just trying to enjoy our story.Who is we? I see a lot of bleating retards flaming each other. Why don't you stop?Do you not know that the fastest way to end a flame war is to shut yo fucking mouth and stop flaming?A "please stop, you are just wrong" is just being a hypocrite.>but there aren't any other powers in the list that we want more.anons jizzed themselves over the replication power.
>>36457357"Hey guys, have you seen Samantha? We got separated when I got my chest stomped in. It was a little touch and go there for me."
>>36457357"Sorry I disappeared on you. Things happened."Wave the stump around visibly.
>>36457357>Is power stealing automatic when we touch a corpse, or did we have to consciously do it and can choose not to? (for example, if we punch someone to death)
>>36457402>anons jizzed themselves over the replication powerI think you did, there was only one anon playing at that point, it looks like. >Did you miss the part about typical epics having upwards of 5 powers and that we don't chose which power to take?>Try to steal regen>Get a different power>Lose random power>Be fucked>No easy source to reproduce your powerset from (eg, an island full of epics)Anon, Steel Manipulation, our signature power, is one of the Rarer powers.
>>36457357>Is it metagaming to repeatedly replace a power with different absorbs in order to "practice" absorbing and get better at it. (eg, gain the XP for each absorption), or is it being metagaming?>If we try to absorb a power, and instead get a power we don't like, can we just choose to abort it and not take it (giving up on the XP), or do we have to choose a power to discard for it to replace?
>>36447561>rose from the wea-I mean normalWhat's the joke here?
Oh shit where's illusion girl?
>>36457463>I think you didActually no, I couldn't give a fuck about it. it was other anons.>Anon, Steel Manipulation, our signature power, is one of the Rarer powers.1. It can be faked with vector manipulation. We can even claim it was vectors all along. In fact, we already are using vectors as part of our steel manip. or that it improved from manip steel to manip everything (improvement happens).2. This is not actually a counter to the argument I actually MADE. I did not advocate we discard steel manip, I said that losing it now is going to hurt less than losing it later after leveling it up some more.
>>36457560time to go on a rescue mission.
>>36457357Let's be all giddy and shit. Ask em if they had any particularly crazy fights. Purple beamspam man was crazy to fight.
>>36457560Oh shit, where IS she?>>36457357>Sooo...anybody seen Samantha? I'm afraid I may have lost her on the way back..
>>36457596Vectors are slower due to speed cap and have a lot less range, Steel manipulations range at level 1 was 3 times that of vectors.
>>36457419>Willful, must have the intention to steal.>>36457476>Kinda meta, as its not something you would do in character. Practicing doesn't do much for you anyway, as you have instant absorption.>You can abort it, this quest is pro-choice >>36457551wea- =weaklings
>>36457596>It can be faked with vector manipulationhow, exactly, would we make a giant steel demon dance with vectors? When we can barely bend bullets, when we know they're coming. And we can't completely control things as massive as a fist.
>>36457662>Willful, must have the intention to steal.>You can abort it, this quest is pro-choiceso basically, this power is perfectly safe, we can touch however many corpses we want. if they have an upgrade to regen/invulnerability/something we take it, if its a sub par tier we discard it?
>>36457662>Will high enough levels in powersteal let us steal something from a living person?
>>36457694yes, but as he pointed out. taking powers just because isn't something we'd do in-character, it doesn't match our personality. We only steal from people who try to kill us.
>>36457735But we won't get the XP from any of the powers we reject, right?
>>36457736Or who were dead right next to us when we badly needed a boost like steel manipulation guy.
>>36457671Bullets don't contain steel, at all, nonewhatsoeverAlso, bullets are moving really fast.And we can move way more than a fist. we used that power to toss ourselves from ground floor high up easily. and to massively accelerate our massive steel demon, and the like.The reason we had trouble moving the first of enemy supers is because they had super strength and resisted our TK with their muscles, we had no such problems with the disintegration guy.As for how specifically, by changing our tactics. instead of giant demon. rely on our invulnerability and regeneration for stregnth and vector manip steel balls in a swarm. saying you are trying different tactics. as our power with vectors grow, we will eventually be able to reflow steel into a demon if we so wanted. and for the interim, nobody will question us changing our tactics around
>>36457758Right, we see ourselves as a hero, not a villian
>>36457766What would max level power steal do exactly?What would max level steel manipulation do?
>>36457763We used the giant demon in a dance off with another Epic at a party. We have allies, and we've been sorta showing off with steel manip, using it to make constructs. It's part of our personality. Read the older threads
>>36457769Not Hero per se but picking over corpses is just plain scummy, and not fitting our good guy image we try to cultivate. Besides that would get our power blown for sure if someone spotted us repeatedly.
>>36457736>yes, but as he pointed out. taking powers just because isn't something we'd do in-characteractually no. that isn't what he said AT ALL>>Is it metagame to take a power only for the XP and then discard it immediately for another power, repeating the process with many powers all in one slot to "practice" power stealing>It kinda is metagamishThe idea was basically>Steal water control, discard disintegration>Gain XP>Steal flower control, discard water control>Gain XP>Steal earth control, discard flower control>Gain XPmetagamish>Touch corpse>water control? is shit, abort>Touch corpse>flower control? is shit, abort>Touch corpse>Regen upgrade? is good, steal!>Gain XPnot megagamish
>>36457817Still logistics would be a nightmare and we could easily lose cover and prestige. Not worth it unless we get put on Medical guard and transport detail.
>>36457798I have read the last threads, try thinking with your brain>Why don't you do the steel demon when dancing?>What, and always use the same move?We can vector like a mofo when dancing.Also, as I said, its only a temporary thing as we get our vector control strong enough to compensate for the loss...of course the whole thing is moot since word of QM is that we choose which power to discard, so we just won't discard steel control.
>>36457817agreed, but not in character with our personality. We aren't a scavenger, we're trying to appear to be a good guy, we aren't going to go out of our way to hunt corpses.
>>36457817>>36457834I hadn't been participating in this discussion up till now, but won't the winning side want to gather up all the epic corpses so that the DNA doesn't fall into enemy hands?We just get put on corpse collection duty and we're golden.
>>36457769>Right, we see ourselves as a hero, not a villianno, not at allpeople have said to PRETEND to be a "nice guy" to the "masses" and "a reliable guy" to "other epics".nothing about seeing self as a nice guy.
>>3645786212 minute after death window sadly.
>>36457862>I hadn't been participating in this discussion up till now, but won't the winning side want to gather up all the epic corpses so that the DNA doesn't fall into enemy hands?Yes, in fact it is our EXPLICIT ORDERS to collect the corpses of our enemies.so as you said, there is no logistical problem at all with that. its called "cell harvesting".
>>36457862exactly, there's no reason to do it right now. We need to find samantha. if our partner dies, it'll hurt our rep.>>36457872We want loyal followers, not to be complete asses.
>>36457790Instant same level absorption. If you absorb a level 15 waterbender, you have level 15 waterbendingUse the iron in blood, pull steel from deep in the crust, make atom thick blades, etc
>>36457889>>36457862>>36457892>there's no reason to do it right now.Our powerstealing only works for 12 minutes after death.
>>36457885until we upgrade. every upgrade increases the timeAnother possibility>Kill enemy>Make sure he is dead via checking pulse or tearing head off with our hands>Harvest cells>take trophy>Mutilate corpse in pretend rage / for humor purpose>Dead ally?>Check pulse>Perform CPR>Carry to healersSo many reasons to touch corpses its not even funny.
>>36457910>Instant same level absorption. If you absorb a level 15 waterbender, you have level 15 waterbendingOK TIME TO PUT ALL XP INTO POWERSTEAL
>>36457910>Instant same level absorption. If you absorb a level 15 waterbender, you have level 15 waterbendingpower steal the best
>>36457910Do we get things like half-level absorption at some point? Like if we get a lv10 lightning shooter, we get lv5 lightning?
>>36457892>>>We view self as good person>>No, we just pretend>We want loyal followers, not to be complete asses.did you follow the conversation?>>36457912ok>Harvest cells from 20 corpses>Only 4 were fresh enough to count>3 had shit power, discarded>1 had good power, stolen an upgrade to invulnerability>Got massive cash bonus for harvesting corpses>Lost nothing for the attempt
>>36457923True enough but timing is still tricky, lets hold off on hunting till we get our allies back into decent shape and ourselves for that matter.
>>36457932>>36457935Other advantages of power steal is that each level gives us more slots to play with.
>>36457955yeah, level 10 for 1/2 level
>>36457966oh sure. i mean. its not like we go AWOL to hunt corpses.just, if we get the CHANCE to, there is no reason to pass on it. since worse case scenario we sense it has a crappy power and just abort it like a poor baby
>>36457992what is max level?
"Sorry for disappearing guys, took an anti-tank rifle to the gut, had to hole up to heal. Then some asshole with a cockney accent and a disintegration beam jumped me. You guys ok? Seen any of the others?Oh, and FYI, getting gut shot sucks ass.""Null Field? That guy is a High Epic! How'd you kill him?" Nathan asks, feeding a piece of his steak to his bird."Lots of steel." You pause for effect. "Surprised him to, spike through the neck. Not before he took my arm off, though." You lift up your steel arm to show them. "So, wheres Sam?"She's up on the front lines. Helping finish the other Epics off. We'll have to go there tomorrow, but you might get out of it cause your arm." Sydney says, pointing her fork at the silver hand."He'll be fine after a day. Most regenerators can lose arms and wake up the next day fine." Nathan counters.>Anything else?>After you go to bed, I'm gonna end the thread to have a long time awake to answer questions
>>3645801315 aka world ender tier
>>36458024Don't go to bed, we owe sam, we gonna go watch her back for a while too.I wonder if we should have harvested the cells of that guy. he is high tier so its worth a lot but... nah fuck its better we don't. its OUR power now
>>36458068>Don't go to bed, we owe sam, we gonna go watch her back for a while too.that is the excuse that is, I want to see if we can score better regeneration off some scrub.That, or we can just give the fun excuse.
>>36458024Guys You know what happened to me, but what happened to you? Seriously there has to be a story. Also anything on Andrew or the other guys? I got knocked out of the loop .
>>36458024So, what is the toughest and or coolest enemy you fought?
>>36458024"I wouldn't let a little thing like a missing arm stop me. Maybe a leg tho. It'd suck not having legs."
>>36458024>That guy is a High Epicwhat does high epic mean?also, didn't we kill 3 epics today? (and got injured heavily twice).
>>36458114Yes and yes. High epic are people who could conceivably take and rule a city on their own. The generals and leaders of an Epic army. Steelheart is a high epic.
>>36458112haha, i like it.i guess we need to find a commanding officer? or do we just walk back to the front lines?and hey, I wonder if there is a bonus for killing that high epic guy
>>36458141>Steelheart is a high epic.sounds like someone who will upgrade our steel control
>>36458173He's got invulnerable 15 anon he could take a fusion bomb and laugh it off. he also has a suite off other extremely strong and fuckawfully dangerous powers.
>>36458191Does disintegration ignore invuln or does it just have a really high damage output?
>>36458191I didn't say it would be easy.
>>36458093>>36458097"Normal clearing. A few Epics, one was really fast. I couldn't catch him," Sydney says, stuffing a piece of lettuce into her mouth. "Finally got him with a guy who could control earth. James made a giant pit, and when the runner fell in, he buried him.""Andrews at the frontlines with Sam and Artemis." Nathan says, he gets back up to get another steak.
>>36458207it says flesh, stone, and metal so it should. problem would be disintegrating the flesh faster than it regens
>>36458227>"Andrews at the frontlines with Sam and Artemis."Didn't we sleep with all 3 of them?
>>36458234He regens at light-speed?sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit
>>36458234that doesn't mean that invulnerability can't partially or fully negate it.its not normal flesh anymore, its invulnerable flesh>>36458248or like cell or majin buu from DBZ
>>36458207Really high out put, he no sold someone called Deathpoint who had similar powers, he literally cannot be hurt if you don't know his weakness. Plus he can fly and has laser eyes.>>36458208Nigh on impossible unless we get majorly swole even then we'd be having a Sisyphean struggle. >>36458234He doesn't have regen (thank god) but he can no sell disintegrates.
>>36458234>>36458248>>36458260>>36458264if we hit him with a full level disintegration beam long enough to wear it down we might have a shot, even that's a maybe
>>36458289eh, its just a question of how swole we are>Invulnerability 15to match his>Regen 15now we got the upper hand>Steel manip 15matches his>Vector 15can out steel manip him if we boost it with this>Disintegration 15to overcome his invulnerabilityetcits just a matter of how swole.of course, if we already got 15s across the board then there is little reason to fight... then again no. at level 1 power steal had 3 slots. and they go up by +1 per level. so at level 15 we would have 17 slots to fill. And can steal a power at level 15. meaning hunting high epics for those sweet level 15 powers.
>>36458289QM did say that brains beat brawn in a response to a "fight smarter" comment.Superior strategy wins.Heck, we just beat a high epic and its mostly cause he was too arrogant and saw an injured opponent, so he didn't bother to have his shield up or do a surprise attack. this allowed us to get that initial steel shard in his leg before he got his shield up, and mangle his leg. which was crucial for the fight
>>36458340He actually cant manipulate steel, oddly enough. Just make it. Working in Newcago would be great for using steel
>>36458379that would be a really delicious power for us to steal.
>>36458379>>36458397can such closely related powers combine?like "manipulate steel" and "create steel" combine into a "manipulate and create steel"? (that is, take one slot, and share XP)
>>36458114>High Epics are Epics that have a prime invicibility. A prime invincibility is a power that makes conventional assassination methods useless. Some examples are regeneration, impervious skin, precognition, and self-reincarnation.I don't think this is the definition Nathan was using, since Null Field was very much killable by conventional means.
>>36458424Level four Power Steal lets you make a power permanent at a XP cost.
>>36458468>Level four Power Steal lets you make a power permanent at a XP cost.ALL XP INTO POWERSTEAL
InvulnerabilitySteelheart is impervious to harm from all known sources, including bullets, edged weapons, electricity and fire.Super StrengthInhumanly broad and tall, Steelheart is strong enough to crush bones and throw people with ease.Wind ManipulationControl of the wind grants Steelheart the ability to fly and pick up objects using the air around him.Steel TransfersionWhen angry, Steelheart spontaneously transforms non-living matter around him to solid steel, spreading out from him in a sphere. Steel and iron have the ability to "insulate" against the transfersion, but other metals are transformed to steel. As this ability is tied to his emotions, he sometimes uses it without intent.Energy BeamsSteelheart can project energy beams from his hands that can vaporize people and melt steel with ease.Eidetic MemorySteelheart claims to remember everything perfectly, but this is not broadly established and may be boasting.
>>36458453>I don't think this is the definition Nathan was using, since Null Field was very much killable by conventional means.the null field was completely impenetrable until he was very injured in very in pain.Initially, he under estimated us, instead of blasting us from surprise with null field on, he came to banter with it off. we manage to hit him in the leg with a shard before he raised itat that point he was completely invulnerable to all our steel attacks except for maniipulating the shard already in his leg.Once he was in enough pain and bloodloss, we were able to cause distraction with using vector manip to hurt his palped leg to allow some steel to slip through his defenses.>>36458468nice. I still wold like to merge powers just for the feeling of "crafting" (every indie game has to have crafting).but in some ways this is even better (more costly in terms of XP, but can get as many powers as we want as long as we got XP)... holy shit, our power lets up break the power cap!>>36458500I keep saying this
>>36458500i want Vector 2-3 first then all aboard powersteal
>>36458068I kind of want to cover Sam as well. I mean, I liked her before wanted to bully her, but now she has gone and saved our lives, and genuinely seems to like us. We owe her, at the very least.
>>36458500that has always been the plan we just spent some so we didn't just have level 1 powers for a big battle
>>36458024get back to the fight we don't need two arms to fuck shit up
>>36458605Someone could just kill him in his sleep.
To people saying to go help Sam, we'll fight with her next thread. She has Andrew and Artemis to protect her, and she is in the background to provide illusions
>>36458881that is true.I think he mainly compensated for it with how OP his power was. Even if he technically does not meet the definition.
>>36458823>wanted to bully her with the penisFTFY>>36458861I think we are going to have to get used to that. we just can't survive on nothing BUT power steal. we pretty much have to put something in some combat powers
>>36459062not true at all smarts beat power every time we just got to be creative. we took down some one with a level 8 power because we fought smart,
