Right now, you were in a bit of row with your cousin Nelson over whether his sons or your idols would win in a fight. Now, normally you weren't the overly competitive type, but holy shit, you'd never pass up a chance to put Nelson in his place. You see him in a sports huddle with his four sons, no doubt "strategizing" on what to do.Well, you guess that you should set down some ground rules with your idols, too. You gather up Cole, Julie, Melissa, and Morgan together."So, whats the plan, Producer?" Cole asks. "We gonna play nice, or do we utterly trounce them?""I say we go all out!" Julie cracks her knuckles. "Never failed us before!""I suspect, though, the Producer wants us to defeat them, not kill or maim them." Morgan points.>Don't worry, his boys are tough. Don't hold back.>Yeah, this is just for fun so take it easy.>Other
>>36475923>>Don't worry, his boys are tough. Don't hold back.Wouldn't be sportsman-like if we held back and they know it as well.

>>36475923>Don't worry, his boys are tough. Don't hold back.But don't go for any crippling or killing moves. They are still P-san's family.

>>36476037MORGAN CHAIKA NOW
>>36476037So....did P-san's mom also get her matching pantsu?
>>36475923"Don't worry, his boys are tough, so don't hold back." You assure them. "Like you all, they've been through their own scraps and scuffles.""Excellent!" Julie grins. "Yo! Pog! You ready yet?" Nelson calls out."Always have been!" You yell back.Though right now, you try to recall what Nelson's boys specialized in. Fortunately for you, he was always all too ready to brag about what they could do. First up was Dale, the scout sniper. From what you heard, he was pretty damn good, and obviously he'd be the one Morgan would be going up against.The other three boys, however, were a bit trickier.First, there was Rick, who was a great bear of a man. Specialized as a heavy weapons guy so naturally he was going to be physically strong. However, size wasn't everything, and could be a big weakness in the right situations.Second up was Jones, who was of a more moderate build, but he was a master at CQC, and was actually an instructor at his base, meaning what he lacked in strength, he made up for on technique.And finally, there was Melvin. Melvin was apparently famous for being damn near impossible to hurt. Whether it be from a punch or a bullet, nothing seemed to be able to stop him. There was speculation that he couldn't even feel pain, or just perceived it differently from other people."All right, Rick, you're up!" Nelson says, patting his mountain of a son on the shoulder. Now who to send against him...>Cole>Julie>Melissa
>>36476321>JulieSave Melissa for Jones and Cole for Melvin
>>36476321>>MelissaFinish this guy quick and you'll get as many headpats as you desire!
>>36476321>JulieSave Melissa to go against Jones
>>36476321>JulieMelissa is our second-best at Melee, and better than either Cole, Julie, or Morgan at it. I think we should save her for the CQC instructor.

>>36476321>Rick, who was a great bear of a manMelissa, cause Anti-BEAR training
>>36476486I agree with this whole heartedly. Also I really think it should be the girls vs their respective counterparts strength vs strength, finesse vs finesse and immune to damage vs zap zap.
>>36476507Why do you want Julie to fight against the CQC Instructor, and Melissa to fight the big ox?
>>36476584True, but I also kinda wanna see different advantages go against each other. Kinda like The Viper and The Mountain.
>>36476321"Julie, you're up." "Yesssss!" Julie fist pumps. "I won't let you down, Producer!" "Just do your best." You reply.With that, Julie strides forward to meet her opponent. At this point, most of the rest of the family have gathered at the backyard as well to watch."So, um, does this happen every year?" Melissa asks."Pretty much." You sigh. "It's kinda a family tradition by this point.""Cool." Melissa remarks simply.Meanwhile, out on the grass, Julie and Rick pause for a second to size each other up."Aw man, I don't usually hit girls." Rick frowns. "Funny. I'm equal opportunity when it comes to beating people up." Julie chortles. "Say, how about this." Rick grins. "I'll let you get a free shot in. Just because I'm so nice.""Ahahahaha, nice try." Julie laughs and turns her cheek to him. "What are you, a sissy? I feel so sorry for you that I'll let you take the first shot!""No, I insist.""No, I insist!"Both you and Nelson just sigh and shake your heads. Cole and Melissa try and fail to contain their snickering while Morgan seems to have already gotten into a deadly staring contest with Dale.>Just hit him already, Julie!>Quit being a pussy and hit her already, Rick!>Other
>>36476623>Quit being a pussy and hit her already, Rick!Police need a reason to use force.

Since she's next in line, who exactly is the current head of Morgan's family? I mean, I don't really think the factions have that much of a hateboner for each other to do underhanded things and find someone to "replace" Morgan.

>>36477188I don't quite understand what you mean?
Drawfag again. Yo Merc, what rifle will Morgan be using for the sniper duel?
>>36477173Julie responds with her own punch, smacking Rick right in the face. It doesn't seem to hurt him too bad, but it does force him back, giving Julie some much needed breathing room.>Keep pressing the attack.>Back off and wait for him to make the next move.>Other

>>36477462Julie puts some punishing blows into Rick's stomach, forcing him back even further. However, Rick wasn't taking any of that laying down. He responds with a punch of his own, catching Julie in the chest and sending her tumbling into the grass, though she manages to regain her footing. Both she and Rick glare at each other briefly before charging at each other one more time, timing their punches so perfectly that they hit each other at exactly the same time. There's another pause, and they both collapse to the ground.>Go check if Julie is okay.>Hold off for a bit.>Other

The enemy is focused on our cybernetics, thinking the cyborg parts are more of a threat - he's just admitted to needing to use actual effort, so beat him with our non-augged parts that he won't expect melissa to prioritize!In short, feint with the augmentics and sucker punch him when he's not expecting a front snap kick or off-hand jap.

>>36479271If the 17 was one of the first 3 rolls, maybe. But it isn't so we're not wasting our stars.
>>36479198Ruh roh! Do you want to use a STAR POWER to negate that 1? Though consider how low the other rolls are, there may not be much point...You have 3 points.>Y>N

>>36479292Melissa raises her augmetic leg, intending to press it down on Jones' chest to keep him down. However, the downed Marine wasn't out yet, and his arms lash out and grab her by the leg. Melissa yelps in surprise as with one smooth motion, Jones literally yanks her leg off. Melissa loses her balance and as she falls, Jones grabs her and puts her into a CQC hold, leveraging her augmetic arm away from her while pinning her to the ground and putting pressure on her throat."Better give up while you can." Jones grunts. "Before you pass out."Melissa only grits her teeth as she tries to stay conscious.>Tell Melissa to give it up.>Tell Melissa to try and break out.>Tell Melissa to think her way out of this.>Other

I have a good feeling our girls will learn something from this.
Our girls deserve headpats all around after this
>>36479652As awesome as that would be, I don't think the augs work like that.
>>36479734no its a trait she has she can superheat her fist
>>36479764Wait, seriously? Then fuck yeah, let's see it in action!
>>36479734Yeah I suggested it after looking through her character sheet. As far as I remember she has never used that ability in particular.
>>36479602>Jones literally yanks her leg offDid you mean literally as in literally or literally?
>>36479602>Jones literally yanks her leg offI thought you needed special tools and follow a protocol to detach an augment limb.If someone can just press a button and pull an arm or a leg off, that's quite problematic.
>>36479602"Come on, Melissa!" You yell some encouragement. "There's a way out of this! You just have to think!"Melissa looks at you a bit confused at first, until realization dawns on her eyes. She then grimaces as she starts moving her shoulder around."Hey," Jones blinks "what are you-" And then Melissa detaches her augmetic arm, popping the artificial limb out of its socket. With Jones' leverage gone, Melissa is able to slip out of hold. She then grabs her detached arm with her remaining one, pulls it out of Jones grip, and smacks him across the face with it like a makeshift club. There a loud, WHUMP as steel alloy meets skull, and Jones goes down hard."And that's the match!" Dad yells. "Melissa is the winner!"Both you and Nelson have to pick up your respective fighters. Nelson because Jones was out cold, and you because Melissa was now missing half her limbs. Cole and Morgan give Melissa a high five as you walk back, while Julie gives an approving nod and thumbs up from her resting place."Lucky hit." Nelson frowns. "But your girl won't be any match for Melvin here!""Hey, Producer." Cole prods you with her elbow as Morgan and one of Lacy's kids helps Melissa get her limbs put back on. "Can I use my powers on this guy? I know you haven't told your family or anything, but I actually don't know if I can beat this guy without them. His aura just seems off somehow...">Sure, go for it.>Alright, but don't be too flashy.>Try fighting him without your powers.>Other

>>36479941>Sure, go for it.to hold back would be an insult at this point.
>>36479941>Alright, but don't be too flashy.Maybe she'll jump start his pain receptors.
>>36479941>Alright, but don't be too flashy.Her powers are a part of her and we should be encouraging that, but we don't want her to outright fry him either.
>>36479941>Alright, but don't be too flashy.Only melee strikes. No ranged zaps.
>>36479941>>Alright, but don't be too flashy.Save the shocks for punches and grapples.

>>36479941>OtherJust tell them now, so that Cole can go all out and Nelson's boys can't call foul later.
>>36479941>Sure, go for it.
>>36479941>>Sure, go for itshe straight up smacked a bitch
My hand is killing me, but the idoru art stops for no man. Not pictured is Morgan laughing maniacally behind some shrubbery.
>>36480015you may rest now, drawfag. You have earned it.
>>36480015Oh god. My Heart.You will think they will all laugh right in front of her.
>>36479997So basically Melissa taught herself the essentials of the School of the Undefeated of the East? Works for me!
>>36480015And you've done it once again. Rest well, brave hero.
>>36480015Based Drawfriend!Bonus points for Cole looking like a loli
>>36480015Love you drawfag.
>>36480015Your sacrifice shall not be forgotten, based drawfriend
>>36480015GOD DAMN IT draw fag this is it for me you just killed me
>>36479941I knew that Melissa carry picture would be used someday for the exact thing it was intended for!
>>36480015Hnn, I wanna cuddle her so hard and I wouldn't even care how badly I got shocked after
>>36480044Hmm....Loli Idols....What would Rochelle look like as a loli (Large Framed glasses?)
I just realized by looking at the Producer she used her own augmentic arm to club our relative like how she clubbed up back when we tried to wake her up?
>>36479941"You can use your powers, but don't be too flashy about it." You warn. "As you said, nobody here really knows about yours powers, so we don't want to put everybody in a panic.""Got it." Cole nods as she takes her place on the field. Melvin likewise takes his spot opposite her and they both stare each other down. Melvin then gives Cole a confident smirk and wordlessly motions for her to come at him.You really hope Cole would be able to keep her cool.>He's not going to go on the offensive, so let Cole attack him all out.>He's trying to bait Cole. Warn her to keep her cool.>Other
>>36480090We should wake up our girls more often.
>>36480107>He's trying to bait Cole. Warn her to keep her cool.
>>36480107>>He's trying to bait Cole. Warn her to keep her cool.
>>36480107>He's trying to bait Cole. Warn her to keep her cool.Make him fight on your terms, not his.
>>36480107>>He's trying to bait Cole. Warn her to keep her cool.Don't be greedy, girl!
Rolled 8, 14 = 22 (2d20)>>36480107"Cool, Cole. Don't let him bait you." You warn."I know, I know." Cole growls. "I don't need you nitpicking.""Just saying." You laugh.This time, Cole takes a more measured approach. She takes up a boxing stance and moves toward Melvin at a steady pace rather than a breakneck run. Melvin, seeing that his taunt didn't achieve the desired affect, loses patience and begins closing in toward Cole as well.>roll 1d20

>>36480242Cole just strikes him once in the chest. It was just one light jab.And then suddenly, out of freaking nowhere, a lightning bolt comes down from the sky and zaps Melvin right there on the spot. Everybody gasps as Melvin just stands for the second."Ow." He says simply before passing out."Cole..." You frown."I-I didn't do anything! I swear!" Cole cries.>NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!>Thunderbolt: Calls an extremely powerful lightning bolt from the sky to strike a single target for massive damage."Uh huh." You say, not convinced at all."Well, uh, we'll just say that one was an Act of God." Dad coughs. "All right, last event for the day!""All right, Dale is sure to outshoot your girl." Nelson grins.

>>36480439>Extreme. 2000+ meters.Cole learned Thunderbolt! We didn't even have to use a TM!
>>36480513Mildly horrified could work too, I mean going from "pew pew lightning from my hands and EMPs" to "HOLY SHIT IM ZEUS SMITING FOOLS FROM THE SKY" is a pretty huge leap
>>36480514Too bad it can only be really used when there's access to the outdoors.
What are the chances of doing a VMQ1 with our sniper and instantly our opponent will declare marriage?
>>36480538Uhhhh....They're going to need a room in the mansion for that unless they just plan on doing it then and there. Either way, I hope they use a condom because Morgan's still an idol.
>>36480534That being said it makes for pretty awesome anti air disposal.
>>36480538Unless he critfails and we crit, I don't see that happening again. Of course, the dice gods being who they are...
>>36480534I'm not so sure on that: if you're in a situation where you know there's a buncha baddies on a roof, or sensitive equipment, and you're stuck indoors, that ability could really shift a bad situation in your favor.Of course at that point, we'd all need to be weary of the lightning bolt's mortal enemy: the lightning rod.
>>36480569Actually, that would work pretty damn well against aircraft.>>36480578Hmm...I wonder if it's possible for her to temporarily "Charge" herself with a lightning bolt, only to release it later on?
>>36480549Not just get down and dirty. Producer's family (I hope) are gentleman he'll just declare marriage if we beat him very badly.>>36480575I hope we can
Another potential use for the thunderbolt: If it hits a metallic vehicle it can arc into somebody close by. They'd go flying. I've seen it happen with my own two eyes.
>>36480530What worries me is how young she is and the amount of power she has at her disposal. Right now she can summon lightning bolts, what do you think she'll be able to do in 5 years time?

Hi, guys, I just managed to catch up on today's thread->>36480439>NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!>Thunderbolt: Calls an extremely powerful lightning bolt from the sky to strike a single target for massive damage.-and you have everything in hand. Carry on.>Extreme. 2000+ meters.
>>36480637One Shot One Kill: Morgan can crit on a 19. However, this cannot be used for STAR POWER.Here Comes the Snow: +3 to hit on her first shot.''We just need this. I hope We can apply this to our shot
Rolled 19, 16, 6 = 41 (3d20)>>36480439"Well, if we're going to compete, we might as well push it to the extremes." You say. "2000 meters.""Now that's what I'm talking about!" Nelson laughs. "Dale, you eat that range for breakfast, don't you?" "Yep." Dale nods."2000 meters is training wheels for me." Morgan says simply. "All right then, shooters, pick a weapon!" Dad says, opening up a trunk full of rifles of all kind and make. Dale, as expected, picks out a Springfield, while Morgan, also somewhat expected, picks out a Mosin Nagant. Guess they both had an appreciation for the classics."All right, so here are the ground rules." Dad says. "Each of you will have 3 targets to hit, and only three rounds to shoot. Whoever hits more targets is the winner. In the case of a tie, the shooter who hits closest to the center of all their targets is the winner. If THAT is tied, well, uh, I have no idea what to do in that case, so you two don't be going all godlike on me!"Both Dale and Morgan nod, and they both head over to a nearby shooting table to set up."Morgan, are you sure you can shoot with that outfit on?" You ask, pointing to her gothic dress."Ah, well, it shouldn't be a big deal." Morgan blushes a bit. "It'll be fine."Both Morgan and Dale are allowed a couple of ranging shots so they can properly adjust their rifles. When they both give the signal that they're ready, Dad nods. "All right, shooters, you are free to fire!" He bellows.>Roll 1d20

>>36480680>>36480681>>36480687Looks like Morgan only made 1 out of 3, while Dale made 2 out of 3.
>>36480708Starpower?We got 4 so let's do it!
>>36480703>>36480708True, then again it depends whether or not her Ability that grants her a +3 on her first shot comes into effect.
>>36480716Might as well use one point if we win. I feel we have enough in the bank.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQzWni9dPSg>>36480626you know I just realized by watching Static Shock that Cole can already fly. All she needs now is the lid of a garbage can and we are good to go. I know this is posible considering Cole Mcgrath could levitate a freaking CAR on the air so if we can add that in it would be nice and all.Good times.

>>36480439>Thunderbolt: Calls an extremely powerful lightning bolt from the sky to strike a single target for massive damage.Once we get back, I think we should ask Vahlen how the hell genetic manipulation allows someone to summon Lightning. And "Nanomachines, son." isn't going to cut it.
>>36480868Gene manipulation, son.
>>36480868Advanced genetics sonmagic genetics
>>36480868Nanomachines explain everything. Even lightning.
>>36480868She manipulated the electric potential of the surrounding environment or some jargon like that.
>>36480868Maybe she "marked" him as a target when she tapped him?
>>36480868Static electricity via nanomachines.
>>36480921its the same lightning that male cole dissapeared to in the second game. He's come back a lightning bolt of vengeance to strike down anyone who opposes his successor.
Guys you think we might have time left over for the idols to fight over the wishbone or just the dinner in general?
>>36480959I think it'll end at the Dinner.
>>36480959Exactly what would be their wish? That is the question.(I hope I can stay always with the Producer)
>>36480677You see both Morgan and Dale carefully aim their shots. Dale fires off his three shots in quick succession, while Morgan is much more methodical, taking one shot, and then carefully resetting her aim and firing position for the next shot. You suppose that at 2000 meters, even the smallest things could help or hinder you. Finally, Morgan fires off her third shot and sets her rifle down."All right, time to retrieve the targets!" Dad grins.And by that, Dad means sending two of your unlucky nephews to retrieve the targets. Dad then collects them and carefully examines them. "It appears both shooters hit all three targets." Dad mumbles. "But it appears Morgan here got her shots closer to center, so she's the winner!""Yeah!" All your girls cheer and high five each other while Nelson's sons look a bit dejected."Well, I have to admit, your girls really are something." Nelson sighs and then smiles. "But hey, we'll try again next year, huh?""And we'll beat you again." You laugh. "Maybe I should bring the rest of my girls, too.""You got more?" Nelson gasps."Oh yeah." You grin and pat him on the shoulder. "Don't take it too hard, though. My girls really are something special.""I can see that." Nelson nods appreciatively. "Seem to be a friendly lot, as well."You then glance to see what your girls were doing. Melissa seemed to be talking quite a bit to one of Lacy's boys. One of those nerdy, engineering types. Julie, meanwhile, was shooting the shit with Rick, apparently. Apparently that fight of theirs earned each others' mutual respect.And Cole and Morgan were busy trying not to get mobbed by Lacy's girls and Kevin's boys, who all each wanted an autograph or picture or something to that effect.>Let the girls be for now.>Talk to one of the girls.

>>36481006>>Let the girls be for now.Talk to your siblings. Let the girls mix with the other kids.
>>36481006Who's getting mobbed by who?The girls going towards cole and the boys chasing lolita Morgan?
>>36481031I think this is the part of Cole's power growth that's akin to keeping an animal. Sure they start out cute and small, but as time goes on, they grow bigger.
>>36481003Aww thats sweet. I love.our girls. Producer should just adop them already.ツ
>>36481006>Let the girls be for now.
>>36481031I'm thinking it's something like a Godzilla vs Destoroyah situation, where Cole's body is breaking itself down at an accelerated rate because of the extensive amount of genetic modification done to her, which is inversely making her power level skyrocket. This means that yes, she'll die soon, but goddamit she'll go out like a fucking firework on the 4th of July.
>>36481100Or she's just leveling up like the video game character she was based on. This isn't Crank 2 dude.
Taking bets:How long until Cole gains Omniscience?>A Decade, 50 years, 100 years, more?
I wonder if we are going to have Idols fighting over the wishbone?
>>36481006You decide to let the girls be for now. They deserve to have a bit of downtime free of your interference."Those are some damn fine girls you got there." Kevin smiles. "Actually got Nelson to shut up for the day. I didn't think that was even possible!""What can I say? The woman is the superior gender." Lacy laughs. "But seriously, those are some pretty tough girls. I guess self defense is a serious thing in the idol business, eh?""Like you wouldn't believe." You sigh. "Though what I found rather interesting," Dad suddenly walks in, "is how a bolt of lightning came down to strike Melvin right when he was about to fight Cole. And there's not even a cloud in the sky...""Are you implying something, Dad?" You narrow your eyes."I don't know. Am i?" Dad narrows his eyes as well.>Tell Dad the truth about Cole.

>>36481175>Tell Dad the truth about Cole. Privately
>>36481175>>OtherDon't tell him she's a gene moded clone, just give him the info we had on her prior to digging up her past. In private obviously, wouldn't want Nelson giving us shit.
>>36481130Point. I'm just a fan of tragic stories.>>36481173The question you should be asking is if we'll have Idols fighting over the bouquet at Jenner and Producer's weddingThough we all know Melissawill get it.
>>36481217I want the Producer trying out the Idol's homemade cookies! and then suffer mysterious poisoning!
everyone here is family. And our girls our part of the family now. Including Cole. Theyll keep it it a secret anr protect Cole. Tell them.
>>36481130It does make you wonder where the hell Cole's powers will end up...How much further they'll grow; When will she ever stop gaining new powers; etc.The moment I'm not exactly looking forward to is when she stops using guns altogether during ops.
>>36481255Haven't we only unlocked like two of her special abilities? She probably has a lot further to go.
>>36481175"Hey, Dad, a word in private?" You ask."Yeah, sure." Dad nods and follows you inside, where you make sure the close the door behind you."Well Dad, the truth is, Cole isn't exactly what you call normal, even by our standards." You say."Genetic engineering?" Dad says."Yeah. How did you know?" You ask."Oh, please." Dad rolls his eyes. "They've been trying to push that shit in the military for ages! Why do you think Umbrella Corp is one of the biggest military contractors in the country right now?""I suppose so." You nod. "But you're not scared of her or anything?""Why should I be? She seems to be a nice enough girl." Dad grunts. "And she's got a fine role model, in my opinion.""Thanks, Dad." You grin. "And uh, on the subject of Umbrella, she's kind of a byproduct of their genemod experiments, so it would help if you didn't mention any of this to anybody else.""Lips are sealed." Dad smiles. "Now come on, food should just about be ready.""Thanks, Dad.""No need to thank me. We're family, aren't we?" Dad smiles as he heads back out out the room and bellows. "ALL RIGHT, PUKES! DROP WHAT YOU'RE DOING! IT'S TURKEY TIME!"And that's when all hell breaks loose.>And that's it for tonight! Sorry we couldn't make time for the other girls!>Anyways, next thread is next week, as always. Don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday and Ace Combat on Friday!
