It was a... modest affair. Just a few empty rooms with a couple of couches and cots to use as furniture. Even the location wasn't all that great, being hidden behind an old laundromat. Who even goes to a laundromat anymore?Then again, if anybody were to be looking for you, it would be the very last place to check, so you suppose the safehouse succeeds in that aspect."Not exactly five star." Your twin sister Sam mumbles as she carefully prods one of the old couches with her shoe, as if it were going to suddenly explode into spiders. "Hrm, is this really the best Hotel Moscow can afford?" Lisa looks around skeptically.Artya meanwhile stays silent as she sits on one of the old couches and bounces up and down on it, causing an infernal squeaking and creaking noise from ancient cushion springs.>Well, we all gotta start somewhere.>I think we deserve better.>Other
>>39143636>>Well, we all gotta start somewhere.We gotta think positive. For example: No one would expect us to be hiding in this old place!
>>39143636>Well, we all gotta start somewhere.
>>39143636>>Well, we all gotta start somewhere."And its not like i am gonna complaint to that fry-face, i still value my life!"
Sure is nice to have a pastebin with the rules, eh?Some of our crew's abilities are pretty nice.
>>39143636>>Well, we all gotta start somewhere.
>>39143636>>Well, we all gotta start somewhere
>>39143636Alright time for some heisting!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZOZ85vXgQ4
>>39143636"Well, we all gotta start somewhere." You shrug. "Besides, does ANYBODY here really want to bring it up with The Russian?"The rest of your crew just looks at each other nervously. The absolute silence is all the answer that is needed."Yeah, it makes sense." Sam sighs, finally breaking the silence. "She probably doesn't want to invest too much resources in a new crew like ours.""Yeah, well, you gotta spend money to make money, right?" Lisa frowns. "Don't even have a decent workshop here-"Hello? Hello hello? Can anybody here me?" A small electronic voice buzzes, causing all of you to freeze."Who the hell is that?!" Lisa yelps.GHOST?! Artya quickly taps into her tablet."Oh, sorry girls!" The voice says apologetically. "I'm Loki, your crew coordinator! Think of me as like your mission control, or something like that!""The Russian put you up to this?" You ask, searching for the installed speakers in the walls."By 'put up', you mean 'hired', then yes!" Loki says happily. "Oh, and don't worry, I can only speak to you. There's no cameras in your safehouse so I can't actually see anything, so you don't have to worry about privacy issues!""Wait, then how do you know we were looking?" You narrow your eyes."Uuuuuuuuuuh, would you believe me if I said it was a lucky guess?""Lisa. You know what to do." Sam grunts."Yep." Your techie nods as she reaches for her tool pouch.CREEPY. Artya writes.(cont)
>>39144554"Well, um, ON TO BUSINESS." Loki coughs awkwardly. "Welcome to your safehouse! Provided to you free of charge by Hotel Moscow!""Yep. Definitely got what we paid for." You nod. "It'll be a lot nicer when you spruce it up! Honest!" Loki assures you. "That's not even the cool part!"Suddenly, the couch Artya is sitting on rumbles and shakes, causing the masked girl to yelp as she leaps off. The couch then slides away to reveal a hidden trap door."Welcome to the true safehouse! Loki says proudly as you and your crew cautiously walk down the stairs. "Complete with a safe, a workshop, and and everything else you need to carry out a heist!""Okay, now THIS is pretty nice." Sam nods as she looks around.You're not too sure. It looks like a remodeled basement, complete with bare concrete walls and exposed utility pipes and wires everywhere. But it was better than nothing."So, technically, I'm supposed to give you girls a bit of a 'rest period' so you all can 'get to know each other'. But, you seem the sort to love the action, so I can give you a few leads on jobs right now, if you want!">I think we'll look around for a bit.>What kind of jobs are we talking about?>Other

>>39144588"Nah, I think we'll look around for a bit." You say. "You know, get the lay of the land.""Oho, doing some sightseeing, eh?" Loki chuckles. "Well, if it's pleasure you're seeking, you've come to the right guy! What are you looking for?">Well? Anything in particular you want to do? Delta City is a big place with a little bit of everything!
>>39145202Theme parks, popular tourist traps, etc. Gotta see them before the novelty wears off.
>>39145202well, seems>>39145217is reasonable.
>>39145202Let's go see: >>39145217
>>39145202this>>39145217and Clover Idol HQ. See if we can get autographs or other promotional giveaways,
>>39145270has it really established we share same 'verse or in same timeline with CIMQ?For all we know Merc can be just teasing us with recycling the setting.
>>39145217Seconding theme park. Maybe one has deep pockets
>>39145270>>39145322Not sure if Clover even exists in this point in time. It's rather vague as to when this all occurs.When we got into the Tombs, we weren't warned of Cole, Melissa or Julie. If anything, this quest can take place: before the two of them got a reputation (and for Cole, she wasn't even born yet); when Clover was slowly consolidating power; or set in the future when they all retired.
>>39145217Seconded>>39145202We need music while we walk, we got radio? Is that still a thing?
>>39145322I always ran with the idea this is a recycled setting. Maybe set in a different time frame. But it's worth a shot just to give us a chance to see a cameo.
>>39145391>this is a recycled settingMerc Command, the most environment-friendly QM on /tg/.
>>39145202"I dunno, I feel like I'm in a theme park mood." You shrug. "Ha, called it!" Sam chuckles and slaps you on the back. "Always the kid of the group.""S-shut up!" You you wince. "I've seen the stuff you keep on your hard drive!""What?!" Sam gasps. "W-w-w-when?""Hey, come on, we're not going to get anywhere if you two keep bickering!" Lisa sighs. "Yo, Loki, so you got any ideas?""Delta City Park, of course!" Loki says happily. "You're lucky, too. The DCPD is going to hold a demonstration there today for their policebots! So, you can have some fun and a bit of recon as well!""Convenient." You muse."Hey, Artya, are you going to go like that?" Sam asks, pointing to Artya's roughshod poncho and gas mask. Not exactly normal wear.I'M FINE LIKE THIS. Artya types, and then shrinks away and pulls the hood of her poncho further down. NOBODY WILL SEE ME ANYWAYS.That's when you see Artya begin to shimmer out of existence. Her poncho was actually lined with auto-camoflauge material. That was pretty high end stuff. As long as she didn't make any sudden movements, she'd effectively be invisible. "Oh come on, that's no way to go to a park." Sam frowns.>If that's how she wants it, might as well let her.>Surely there has to be another way.>Other
>>39145594>>Surely there has to be another way.Hmm...does the Theme park sell any of those masks?
>>39145594>>Surely there has to be another way.
>>39145594>>Surely there has to be another way.You will go to the park to have fun and you will like it!

>>39145594>Surely there has to be another way.
>>39145594>Surely there has to be another way.C'mon Artya, we're having fun together!
Maybe with this mask?

>>39145594>Surely there has to be another way.I wonder if this is the same park the idols went to...
>>39145713I'm all for stuffing Artya into a Freddy costume.
>>39145785lets keep that for the Heist time.I mean, nothing scarier than seeing Freddy and gang breaking into your vault.
>>39145594"Surely there has to be some other way." You frown."Hmmmm." Sam suddenly snaps her fingers and digs her bags, where she kept a medical kit in case of emergencies. She then pulls out a small surgical mask. "You don't like showing your face in public, right? How about this?"Artya seems to stare at the surgical mask for a few seconds before snatching it out of Sam's hand. She turns her back to you as she carefully takes her gas mask off and puts on the surgical mask. You can see ruffled, messy, short dark hair and a pair of piercing purple eyes as the mute girl turns around.BETTER?"A lot better." You smile."Well, I think we can explain it away as allergies or something." Sam says. "Well come on, let's go! I wanna see those bots in action!" Lisa says excitedly."You do know those very same bots are going to be hunting us down, right?" You raise an eyebrow."Hey, doesn't mean I can appreciate good engineering!" Lisa laughs. True enough.Thankfully, another perk Delta City seemed to have was its highly efficient public transportation. Within half an hour, and you're already in the city center, the opulent District One, where the citywide monorail network drops you off at the front gate of Delta City Park."Whooooaaaaaa." All four of you gasp at the sight. The park was nothing but large, seemingly impossibly large rides and colored lights. Where... where would you even start?>It's been a long time since you've done some old fashioned petty thievery.>Go on some rides!>Get some super unhealthy carnival food!>Let's go see that policebot demonstration.>Other

>>39146375They still exist?
>>39146395Yeah, they're still around. Only light gun game we have at my arcade is the Aerosmith one, though.
>>39146409Dude, Timecrisis is my game! I beat TC2 a year back on only 2 dollars cause I knew where all the enemies spawn. I feel no shame in this cause I beast moded it.
>>39146161"Artya, have you ever had carnival food before?" You ask.Artya silently shakes her head."Holy shit, girl, you do NOT know what you're missing out on!" You gasp."Oh, please Carly." Sam sighs. "I won't stop you if you want to ruin your own body, but don't get someone else to!""Oh come on, just this once!" You pat Artya on the. "Artya here looks like the kind of girl who'd come from a third world shithole that would KILL for a Big Mac!"I STABBED A MAN IN THE HEART FOR SOME CHICKEN MCNUGGETS. Artya types. DOES THAT COUNT?"Are... are you being serious?" You blink.Artya just shrugs, her partially obscured expression never changing. "Christ, what kind in ass backwards end of Russia did you come from?" Lisa winces.I'M NOT FROM RUSSIA. I CAME FROM DOWN THERE. Artya points down to the ground.You, Sam, and Lisa look at each other awkwardly in realization.DON'T WORRY. I THINK THAT PLACE IS A SHITHOLE, TOO. Artya types quickly to reassure you. I OWE HOTEL MOSCOW VERY MUCH.>Ask what The Russia saw in Artya.>Wash your concerns away with lots and lots of carnival grease.>Other

>>39146677Before anybody can say anything else, you suddenly speak up to try and lighten up the mood."HOLY SHIT IS THAT FUNNEL CAKE?!?" You yell as you point to one of the stalls."Cole's Super Sugary Sweet Red Velvet Cake?" Lisa raises her eyebrow.Artya's eyes widen with horror as she looks at the face plastered on the side of the stall. "Something wrong, Artya?" Sam asks."You look like you've seen a ghost." Lisa frowns.I KNOW THAT GIRL. Artya points rapidly."Well duh, everybody knows who Cole is." You say as you swallow the last of your first plate of red velvet funnel cake."Whoa, wait, when did you get one of those things?" Lisa gasps."I'm a fast eater." You explain as you order your second round."This isn't even the worst of it." Sam shakes her head. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAN- Artya frantically types but she's quickly cut off when you shove a plate of super greasy and super SWEET funnel cake into her arms."Yeah yeah, I know a lot of ne'er do wells like us love Cole, but I'm more of a Rochelle fan myself." Sam laughs. "Better eat up. It's not often Carly offers food to other people.""Are you implying something there?" You grunt, licking some whipped cream off the side of your mouth."I'm implying you're a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge pig!" Sam cackles as she snatches your plate from you and takes a bite out of it.>Ha ha, that's a good one.>OH NO SHE DIDN'T>Other
>>39147299>>OH NO SHE DIDN'TOkay, so it takes place some time after CIMQ...

Wait, is Carly older than Sam or the other way around?
>>39147299>as you order your second round.Should have been >as you finish your second roundfor comedic effect.
>>39147299>OH NO SHE DIDN'T>I'm more of a Rochelle fan myself." Sam laughs.Sam confirmed for good taste.
>>39147299>>OH NO SHE DIDN'T>>39147331Or during, a time when their were building their fanbase or maybe before the Olympics.
>>39147388They're twins. They can never agree on who's the "older" one.
>>39147429As a twin myself, there is always an older one. It totally counts.
I for one am grinning very widely at this cameo. Who's a better Heister? Rin's Grandpa or our new MC?
>>39147456It'd be kinda fun to have Rin's grandpa as an eccentric mentor/ cool old dude friend for Carly.
>>39147456>>39147512Maybe we can also get a rival Heister group as a measuring stick for our progress? Maybe Lucina would be a Ghost or something? Oh, and maybe she'll get some new friends.
>>39147299>OH NO SHE DIDN'TI'M GONNA EAT HER... IN BED.Also, no Julie?
>>39147299OH NO SHE DIDN'TIt was one thing for Sam to make fun of your eating habits. You frankly didn't care what she thought, whether seriously or jokingly. But you DID NOT, under any circumstances, STEAL A GIRL'S FOOD LIKE THAT!"Oi, Sam, you really want to suffer an unfortunate accident, don't you?" You say as your eyebrow twitches."I dunno, I was always the faster one." Sam chuckles as she takes another bit out of the funnel cake. YOUR funnel cake. "But I was always the stronger one." You give a forced smile. "Unless you forgot the wailing I gave you the last time we went at it.""I think YOU'RE the one with the faulty memory there..."Meanwhile, Lisa and Artya were standing off to the side, apparently enjoying the show."Aaaaaah, it looks so nice to have a sister..." Lisa muses as she digs into her own cake.I'M A LITTLE JEALOUS. Artya taps before setting down her tablet to slide a forkful of cake under her borrowed surgical mask."I suggest just getting a new one." Sam smiles sweetly. "It won't do to make a commotion here, you know...">You hate to admit it, but she's right.>YOU JUST UNLEASHED THE BEAST.>Other

>>39147914It's because the dice gods are, and always will be, assholes.
>>39147861You aim your first punch at Sam. Not to seriously hurt her, of course, but enough to make her regret crossing you. Unfortunately, Sam's just a bit too slippery. She deftly sidesteps, not even phased. "That the best you can do, little sis?" Sam taunts. "Come on, Dad taught you better than that!"At this point, people were starting to stop and watch. You reckon it won't be long until somebody calls security or tries to join in.>Better stop things here.>You can do this!>Other

>>39148117but then we can kill each other outside the view of the policebot demonstarations.
Alright, I gotta sleep. Great thread so far, Merc. Happy Easter, everyone. Peace.
>>39148014"Hmph." You grunt. "I see your little game here, trying to get me into trouble by picking a fight with you.""Now why would I do that?" Sam gasps with faux surprise."Cuz that's just how you do things." You pout. "Getting others to do the dirty work for you.""Well, I AM the smart one..." Sam chuckles."Bah, whatever." You wave her off. "This bad mood's got me all hungry again.""Excuse me, have any of you seen two girls causing a disturbance here?" You hear someone ask. You turn to see a young woman, probably roughly the same age as you were. She seemed to be normal enough, wearing casual clothing like everybody else present.Except for the DCPD badge clipped to her belt. She wasn't visibly armed, but you got the feeling this person was the type to carry concealed weaponry. "Oh, there's no problems here at all!" Sam assures her and turns to you and the others. "Right?""Right!" You, Lisa, and Artya nod in unison."Hmmmm, all right." The officer nods, not quite convinced, but seeing no actual commotion, couldn't really do anything. "Carry on then.""Jeez, that was close!" Lisa finally breathes as the officer walks away well out of earshot."What? Why are you relieved? Me and Sam were the ones in danger!" "Sorry, I'm just no good with pressure." Lisa admits. TERRIFYING. Artya adds."Well, let's move on." Sam sighs. "Where to next?">Rides!>To the demonstration!>Something doesn't seem right about that officer...>Other

>>39148532"You know, something doesn't seem right about that officer..." You grumble."Really?" Lisa blinks. "She seemed pretty normal to me.""Nah, she definitely wasn't a beat cop, that's for sure." Sam frowns. "And she's way too fit to be a detective or plainclothes cop, either."IT IS A MYSTERY. Artya writes."We gonna investigate?" You ask Sam."You know it!" Sam grins. "Just like old times!""Old times?" Lisa raises an eyebrow. "You two used to tail cops for a living?"SOUNDS INTERESTING"In a way..." Sam chuckles nervously.>Our Dad always taught us never to underestimate cops.>Let's just say we were regular visitors to the local station.>Other

>>39148623>>Other"We had this bodega - its kind of like a grocery store meets a deli - with the best fucking donuts and coffee right in our old stomping grounds. All the cops were dirty as hell, but really streetwise. They knew when to not give too much grief. Trained dogs, almost.So it was kind of a thing us ruffians would do. Street traditions - if they catch you loitering or roughhousing, something not ACTUALLY in trouble, donuts will get you off the hook.""... of course, me and sam took it a step too far, and started trying to figure out exactly how far a pig would go for a snack, so....."
I don't know about you guys, but I've been imagining Artya talking like the Liandri bots from Unreal Tournament 3.BLAME THE CODERS.
>>39148714>>39148623That plus >Our dad always taught us never to underestimate ADULTS. And cops are always adults.
>>39148752Unless they're Julie.
>>39148623"Our Dad always taught us to never underestimate cops." You finish. "Dirty, honest, doesn't matter. They're all dangerous in their own way, and you'll never be able to stay a step ahead of them if you don't know or understand how or why.""Hm, your Dad sounds like an interesting guy." Lisa grins. "He still in the business.""Nah, he retired years ago." Sam shakes her head with a smile. "He, in his words 'was getting too old for this shit'. Plus he saved up enough money to live off of comfortably for the rest of his life."I WONDER IF HE WAS FAMOUS. Artya muses."Maybe...? We knew he was a heister but he never really talked about any specific heists he did." You shrug."Anyways, we gotta figure out how to tail that cop. Something about her give me the willies."

>>39148804"Artya, are you up for some sneaking?" You ask.ALWAYS. Artya puffs with pride."Then try to tail that cop. Let us know what you see, okay?"ROGER. Artya salutes."What are we gonna do in the meantime?" Sam asks."Might as well check out that demonstration, right?" You shrug."Okay." Sam nods. "Lisa?""Oh yeah, I'll get to see all the cool bots there!" Lisa's eyes sparkle. "Well, let's go." You wave them on.The three of you head for the main meeting grounds, where you see easily over a hundred policebots gathered in the central square, standing as still as statues. You could see many spectators gathering around the area as well, and for good reason. Thanks to the policebots, petty crime was virtually nonexistent, so policebots naturally were not deployed very often in some kind of self repeating cycle."Whoaaaaa." Lisa ogles at the bots. If it weren't for the line of security personnel and caution tape, you figured Lisa would start doing unspeakable things to them if she had the chance. "The latest models, too!">Ask Lisa what she knows about these things.>Wait for the demonstration to begin.>Other
>>39149066>Ask Lisa what she knows about these things.
>>39149066>>Ask Lisa what she knows about these things.
>>39149066"So uh, what do you know about these things?" You ask. "Oh, these?" Lisa grins. "These babies here are the Tetra Vaal Scout mk3 models! They swapped out the steel titanium alloy armor the older models used and replaced with lighter carbon fiber ceramics. Equivalent protection for a fraction of the weight, so it makes them faster and more nimble, allowing them to keep up with humans. I hear they can even sprint!""Scary." You frown. "Any variants?""Oh yeah, the Scouts are designed to be completely modular, and built to the customer's specs." Lisa nods. "They got more heavily armored variants, sniper variants, and others designed to carry specialized gear!""But bullets can still stop them, right?" You ask."Well, ANYTHING can be stopped with enough bullets." Lisa shrugs. "The lighter and cheaper variants will go down to most small arms, even handguns. But they get progressively meaner and tougher from there.""Huh." You nod. You're pretty sure a decent MG would be enough to handle them."HEY EVERYBODY!" You hear a very loud, very energetic voice yell. "How are you all doing today?!"Everybody cheers."That's right! Today's demonstration is going to be held by none other than me, honorary Police Chief Julie!" You see the blonde, big busted idol smile and wink.And the crowd goes wild.Must be nice being idol, you think."Now, before we start things off proper..." Julie grins. "My challenge still stands! Is there anybody out here who thinks they can beat me in arm wrestling? Come on! I promise I won't hurt you too much!""You should totally try!" Sam snickers.>Eh, why not.>No way!>Other
>>39149366>No way!We don't want to get on her radar
>>39149366>No way!Low profile.
>>39149366>Eh, why not.It'll be fun.
>>39149366>>Eh, why not.JULIE!
>>39149366>>Eh, why not.No point in not doing it.
>>39149366>>Eh, why not.
>>39149366 >>Eh, why not.
>>39149366>>Eh, why not.TITTES
>>39149555Go away Yoshika and Whobuki, titties are over in /s/
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>39149366Well, time for another tiebreaker!1. Yes2. No
Rolled 19, 19, 18, 7 = 63 (4d20)>>39149615"Heh, I always wanted to see how I'd stack up to her." You grin as you flex your arm. "Wish me luck, sis!""Well hey, it looks like we have a challenger!" Julie laughs as you walk up. "Think you can best me a contest of strength?""Well, can't hurt to try." You grin.All righty then!" Julie plants her arm on a table and smirks. "Bring it on.">roll 1d20
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>39149641
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>39149641
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>39149641JULIE STRONG!
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>39149641TIT CONTEST
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>39149641>Rolled 19, 19, 18Julie turn off your hax
>>39149668We made her too strong. We created a force of nature that only knows how to eat, breathe, and dole out exorbitant amounts of JUSTICE.
>>39149696well, its more incentive to stay out from their radar.....Do you think our Russian connected with Mellisa's Russian?
>>39149641>>39149668>>39149696We sought to create the perfect Combat Idol...And we succeeded...
>>39149662Carly may be match for her in strength, but bust... yeah no, we'd need Janice for that.
Rolled 4, 10, 12, 3 = 29 (4d20)>>39149641You clasp your hand in Julie's and try to push as hard as you can. However, it was like trying to push a brick wall down. You heard of Julie's inhuman strength, but you didn't know it was THIS inhuman. You struggle to not only push Julie's arm down, but to keep hers from pushing yours back. However, it was a slowly losing battle."You can do it, Carly!" Sam cheers from the crowd."Yeah! Take her down!" Lisa adds in.Goddamn, you really couldn't let them down, could you?>roll 1d20
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>39149728
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>39149728
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>39149728Come on now!
>>39149728>>39149734>>39149741Still can't manage it. Although Julie did roll 4d20.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>39149744damn, you were 10 seconds late
>>39149744DAMN YOUR TARDINESSAlthough Merc did roll 4d20, perhaps this'll count?
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>39149716Perhaps. It'd be great if that connection could give us access to augs in the mid-late game, I reckon.Or intense mind-altering drugs. I wouldn't mind that either.
>>39149728There must be accidental groping somewhere in the next update or two.
>>39149804and awaken Carly inherent Titties molester monster?
>>391497594d20 is probably to represent Julie's additional level of skill as compared to a starting character.
>>39149728Unfortunately, it's just not enough, and hardly one second later, and the back of your hand slams against the tabletop."Yes!" Julie cheers as the rest of the audience applauds.Ah well, you suppose you gave your best, as you massage your aching hand. Julie was just as much a monster as everybody said."Well, that was a good match! Not a lot of people could last that long!" Julie grins as she shakes your hands. "Actually, I never caught your name...>Name's Carly.>Make something up!>Other
>>39149937>>Name's Carly.>>otherAsk for a picture with her
>>39149937>Name's Carly.I can only imagine how Producer will interogate one of our members.
>>39149937>Make something up!
>>39149947Nicely if we havnt actually harmed the girls. And then maybe offer idolling contracts.>>39149937>Name's Carly.and ask for a picture
>>39149963Oh yeah your right or teasing ( I still regret not teasing the maid we captured)
>>39149937"The name's Carly!" You grin. "Hey, you think I can get a picture with you? I'm a big fan of Clover!" "Really?" Julie grins as she waves a photographer over. "Which one's your favorite?">Well?
>>39149986Cole due to sweet tooth and eats as much as us.
>>39149986Rochelle. The one only.
>>39149986The mysterious boss
>>39149986YOU!go for the grope subtly
>>39149986You(Julie), of course! I've always been around law-enforcement officials!
>>39150009Oh yeah, between the gun nut and the sweet tooth consumer....But I think our character only cares on how many rounds a gun can spit out rather then design.
>>39149986>>Well?Rin! i love her singing voice.The only answer is dodging the problem by picking one who is NOT a combat idol - julie can't get mad over that. Otherwise, rival for life.
>>39149937Rochelle.>dat gun nuttery
>>39150020I don't get the groping thing? I think she;ll take that as sexual harresment
>>39150097lewdanons pastebin references i think
>>39150097subtly: 'are those real?' 'you can touch them if you want.'
>>39150097It's an underage anon who watches too much singaporan cinema
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>39150097Out of all the idols from CIMQ, Julie had the biggest...assets. She knows this, and was known for it.
>>39150125We understand this. It's still something people don't do.
>>39150125You mean the biggest 'talent'.
>>39149986Haha, oh boy!Are you guys really sure you wanna go through the grope attempt?>Y>N
>>39150133>It's still something people don't do.You don't get out much do you?
>>39150142No. Do this instead: >>39150119Get her permission to do it.
>>39150142>>NYou just had to be a party pooper didn't you Merc?
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>39150142>Yrollan for grope success
>>39150142>nOnly three people voted for it.
>>39150142>>NNope not that kind of story.
>>39150142>>39150150This>>39150154What the fuck are you doing anon?
>>39150154All the more reason not to do it.
>>39150142>NLoki! You've shown us your true form!
>>39150142>NBut make sure she know carly admire her asset
>>39150142Ask if they are real and if we can touch.>>39150161Yeah it is though... No idea what kind of story you think it is.
>>39150143People don't randomly grope other people. I'm sorry, but this isn't some Okinawan Opera.
At minimum we should admire them a lot
>>39150142>>NMaybe staring a bit is fine.
>>39150183Just say chinese cartoon, anon.
>>39150183Thanks for admitting you've never been to a theme park
>>39150142"Ha, well it's you of course!" You grin. "Though Cole and Rochelle are close seconds.""Mhm! I thought so!" Julie chuckles. "And, uh..." You pause for a bit and point at Julie's "assets". "Are those... are those real?""You wanna check?" Julie grins and gives you a wink.Wait... what?!>Sure!>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.>SorryIgottagonow!>Other
>>39150194I refer to Punjati Plays by their proper name.>>39150195What kind of theme park are you going to? It plain doesn't happen.
>>39150206>i tottally not expecting serious answer
>>39150206>>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.but >>Sure!
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>39150206>>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.>Sure!Well, if she gives us the go-ahead, why not?Think of how lewd the pic will be in the tabloids!
>>39150206>>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.>Sure>Tell me your secrets!
>>39150236Stop rolling, for Christ's sake.Which reminds me, Happy Easter, everyone!
>>39150206>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.>Sure>How do you get them so big?
>>39150206>>Sure!>>I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer.>>39150208It's a pretty massive problem that actors at theme parks have to deal with, you would not believe the amount of harassment people get when in costume at places like Disneyworld, the princesses especially get felt up a hell of a lot.
>>39150262The actors? Of course. Normal people? Not so much.
>>39150208>It plain doesn't happen.Denying one of the biggest crimes at themeparks does not make it go away anon, leave the basement and face it, it happens.
>>39150268Uhh yes it does, and also, nice effort trying to move the goalposts, strawman harder faggot.
I imagine producer will suddenly appear and racking a shotgin as we about to grope julie.
>>39150206>Sure!WE ARE ENFORCER, WE GO LOUD!
>>39150276Look. The issue here is with anons thinking it was okay to feel up Julie. It doesn't happen like that. There is no reason that it was acceptable. And yet, these people only have experience of the world through their Mongolian Musicals.
>>39150295Dude. Divorce your real life and quest ethics. This is a merc quest.
>>39150295..what next, Danish Drama?
>>39150297My issue isn't the ethics of it, it's just anons injecting titty grabbing where it doesn't belong. Everything has a time and place. Neither of those have been reached in this quest.>>39150303Nope, we keep this Asian. As such, the next logical response is Vietnamese Ventriloquism.
>>39150320Ooooh, next will be Philippines Pantomime eh?
>>39150320>titty grabbing where it doesn't belong.>JulieSeriously anon, you look like a stupid fool right now, just shut up.
>>39150320Inb4 we go YES and julie is like 'Hey i didn't say you COULD. If you want to, you can do it once you beat us in arm wrestling! Seeya next time!"and instead we get a rivalry and real problem with a cop idol for the rest of the quest.Its the smart move for merc to use peoples testicles against them.
>>39150328Phillipines has an "F" sound, so I hesitate to use it. I'd generally go Bornean Ballet.>>39150335Yes, Julie has big tits. We get it.
>>39150135Sailor moon, really, here?
>>39150343Nigga reread the 2nd half of your post and realize it makes little to no sense
>>39150362'talent' is a long popular term to describe tits, though 'muscles' would have been a bit more fitting.Rin's being called talent is fitting.
>>39150363An, an anon that possesses 0 empathy and doesn't understand emotions, much less femine motivations.Introducing the antagonist and setting them up as a rival is a delicious move. Having the players walk into it all by themselves is even more hilarious.I mean, if -i- were running a cops and robbers type deal, thats what i would do. Introduce the opposition in a friendly, public, noncombat appearance, make em both a role model to look up to AND a force to strive against, and really, really, really make carly frustrated and annoyed with being one-upped by julie by the end of the quest.Or hammer home that getting cop attention in a game about heisting and getting away with it may just not be your best idea to do at every turn, especially not for the luls.
>>39150393Take your fedora off and shut the fuck up.
>>39150393Seriously anon, everyone here still reeling after idol quest ended anderc throwing clover idols on us will guarantee clouded judgment.....and i fear our heist will very difficult with idols everywhere now.
>>39150393I'll give you feminine motivation, but not the rest. And yes on the rest of that, but this situation becoming a "real problem"? I just cant see it, maybe a thing on the side. Bloody phone keyboard.
>>39150426I'm not the anon you were yelling at previously. Just arrived. >>39150452Its not a problem per se, but there is some mad props and respect for having a read on your players enough to manipulate them like that.>>39150427I'd have been interested to see if the reaction were different had the whole cast been around to choose from.
>>39150206"I... I totally wasn't expecting a serious answer." You gulp, your eyes never wandering away from Julie's twin peaks."Ha, I'm pretty cool about this sort of thing!" Julie chortles. "Go on! I won't do anything, promise.""Out here?" You blink."You have an issue with that?" Julie tilts her head."Well, all the people out here, and the children...""Oh, right! I totally forgot about that!" Julie laughs. "All right, just step back here..."Julie leads you a bit further back into the stage where the audience couldn't quite see you. "All right, go for it!" Julie puffs with pride."Um... okay..." You bite your lip and reach your hand out.Huh... they actually were real. How about that."Believe it now?" Julie winks."Uh, yeah." You nod, blushing a bit. "Thanks, I didn't think you'd be up for it.""Hey, anything for the fans, right?" Julie laughs again as she slaps you on the back. Hard. "You know, kinda like you. I'm always open for a rematch!""T-thanks." You grin.You head back out and link back up with Sam and Lisa."So, are they real?" Sam asks. Of course that would be the first question."Yep." You smile and nod. "Ten bucks.""Yeah yeah." Sam grumbles and hands you your winning bet. Jackpot.You then feel a tap on your shoulder and you turn to see Artya standing there, looking glum."Artya? What are you doing here?" You ask.SHE KNEW. Artya taps quickly, looking a bit agitated. SHE KNEW I WAS FOLLOWING HER.You look at Sam and she looks at you, her face frowning in concern."That doesn't sound good." She sighs.And then your phone rings. In fact, all four of your phones begin to ring."Sorry girls, but something just came up." Loki says. "Get back to the safehouse. It's time to earn some money.">And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Unfortunately, I can't run PJ Witches on Sunday as planned, so it will be postponed to Monday afternoon!
>>39150471Thanks for the thread Merc
>>39150471Thanks for today merc.Glad you clarify about the verse
>>39150471thanks for the tread
>>39150471Trust in Merc, based Merc
>>39150471>"Hey, anything for the fans, right?"Julie's boyfriend is gonna be one very lucky guy.
>>39150471When did we make a bet to ffind out they were real?
>>39150498A loooooong time ago.
>>39150497I want to know if Morgan is dating P-sans Nephew. >>39150507Any other bets we should know about involving the clover idols?
>>39150507We also made a bet to see who would get Julie in their bed first right?
>>39150507lets play cops and robbers! you play cop, and ill robher!
>>39150498Some people thought they were genemodded or something.
>>39146677Holy shit, my waifu's in this quest
