School has started up again which is the main reason that I’m not as reliable as I was. Hopefully I can get something of a schedule running again but I can’t promise anything. As for everything else, the pastebins are probably out of date, I need to find out how much money you have and we’re probably going to have a few more threads of character development because most of MMS still has about one thing they like to do and maybe one more defining characteristic and Billy is still as responsive as a slightly intelligent teletype. But hey, hopefully we’ll have fun!>Fate Point: 2>Money: $565>Equipment Carried: Tier 2 Assault Rifle. Tier 2 Armor (+4 wounds). Tier 1 Pistol. Standard Ammo: 3. Tier 1 Knife. Tier 1 Bandolier. (Carry Capacity, 1 Ammo, 1 Misc) Tier 2 Rucksack. (Carry Capacity 6.) Quality Lighter. Tier 1 Med-kit. Tier 2 Med-kit. Tier 1 Toolkit. Your name is William and though a lot of people call you Billy, you find that the memory of being William is strong so you mostly refer to yourself like that even if it is only in private. It’s been three days since Morrigan agreed to go with Koko to New York City, which is apparently all the way to the east and up against the ocean. You don’t think you’ve ever seen the ocean and if you have you don’t remember. Mary told you that it was made up of water that you couldn’t drink because it was too salty and filled with a bunch of creatures, some of which you could eat.
>>42563060That’s for later though, as currently you’re waiting for the last convoy of the year from Fort Riley to finish loading and take the people and goods that are being transported to Kansas City, which is apparently as far west as trains normally run. Something about “unstable borders” and bandits, you’re not quite clear on the first but bandits you understand. As you look around you can see some of the Army members from Fort Riley loading up, they apparently got to go home as the convoy had brought replacements for them. You didn’t anyone you really knew among them, but Sergeant Jones had only gotten there when you did and they are apparently on a yearlong tour. As the last of the farmers finish loading you hear a whistle and turn towards the four trucks that Koko managed to acquire for her trip. Koko’s people were in the front and rear trucks, while MMS had gotten the middle two. You were in the…>First truck with Morrigan, Cath and Sarah. >Second truck with Mary, Bellona and Nem.
>>42563067>First truck with Morrigan, Cath and Sarah.
>>42563067>>First truck with Morrigan, Cath and Sarah.
>>42563067>First truck with Morrigan, Cath and Sarah. The life and times of John Galt when.
>>42563067>Second truck with Mary, Bellona and Nem.Just to be contrary.
>>42563067>Second truck with Mary, Bellona and Nem.
>>42563208When we get a cross over and once they understand just how fucked up Wills life is.. he's ripped from Johns existence.
Alright, looks like the first truck. Glad to see everyone here and sorry for such a delay between runs. Hopefully I'll be able to get the next update in between travel, but if not you know why. >>42563208John does awesome things, gets most of the girls and drowns in fluffy wings and soft bodies while occasionally getting stabbed and or beat up by his girlfriends.
>>42563334 It's never coming back is it Guide.
>>42563471Will hasn't died yet.
>>42563471Until he gets ideas on how to move the story forward, The Blue Crew will have to spend a bit more time at the inn.
>>42563067You were in the first truck with Morrigan, Cath and Sarah. Koko’s trucks were at the end of the column, so she had purposefully put more of her people in last truck in case you were attacked. It wasn’t likely since it was a military convoy and heavily guarded, but apparently there had been an upswing lately so everyone wanted to be sure. The trucks were for the most part open topped, so as you climbed into the back you could still look about. Sarah was driving, as she was the person least likely to be needed in the event of an attack. You Cath and Morrigan were all in position in the back, Cath giving you a hand up even as Morrigan sat near the front and looked over the roof. “Come on Billy,” said Morrigan as she glanced back at you climbing up, “Don’t want to leave you behind in Fort Riley all by yourself, they wouldn’t know what to do with you.” You pause, considering the thought. “Doc and Doc Jones might,” you say in return, settling onto a case of something and checking your weapon again just to be sure. “You’d probably be perfectly happy with them too wouldn’t you,” says Morrigan, “Reading all those books and eating Doc’s cooking every day. Wouldn’t even miss us.” You stop and think again, as the trucks all send up black plumes of smoke as their engines roar to life. As you start to pull out you rock a little bit and have to speak up so Morrigan could hear you. “I’d miss you,” you reply, drawing a smile from Morrigan and a small grin from Cath. “You’re not half bad Billy, have I ever told you that?” Morrigan asks as she punches your shoulder.
>>42563624You just nod in response to her statement, the three of you starting to keep watch as you pull away from Fort Riley. It takes a while for Fort Riley to disappear behind you, but since you’re mostly using the old roads between it and Kansas City it doesn’t take too long. The drive is supposed to be roughly three hours or so depending on if you get stopped for some reason. It only takes about fifteen minutes for Morrigan to start tapping her foot and fidgeting a bit, but Cath seems perfectly fine looking out over the slightly cold prairie for anything that might want to stop you. Looking out over your side of the convoy you don’t see anything, but a glance back at the truck behind you gets you a wave from all three of the girls in it, though Bellona’s is of course the most visible. After another fifteen minutes’ drive you find yourself getting a tad bit restless, as bouncing up and down while not having to pay attention to your horse is a bit boring, even if you are on lookout. You decide to…>Talk to Morrigan. >Talk to Cath. >Talk to both of them. >Focus, this isn’t that bad. (Please note that while generic responses will work, this is an opportunity to ask questions you feel need answered. If you do pick the “Both” option, questions that might otherwise get straight answers may get modified ones or not answered at all depending on the level of awkwardness/personal meaning.)Also, this is me heading out, so don't expect responses for a bit.
>>42563650>>Talk to Morrigan."How do you deal with the waiting?"
>>42563650>Talk to both of them. How'd they meet? Seems like a good starting point.
>>42563650>Talk to Morrigan. Everyone knows Cath doesn't talk.
>>42563650>Talk to Morrigan.I hope Will knows how to drive.
>>42563562 You know not what you have done. See you around anons.... Hahaha....AHAHAHAHAHA
>>42563720He can totally read the manual. It's probably in the glove box.
>>42563650>>Talk to Morrigan.whats new York like?
>>42563650>Talk to both of them.
>>42563650>>Focus, this isn’t that bad.
>>42563650since we are already teaching him bad habits how about we let him play poker with the girls, passing the time while learning!! fun fun fun
>>42563995Actually, that's not a bad idea. Teaches Will how to spot a cheater while having a bit of fun.
>>42563650>>Talk to both of them.
>>42563995I actually like this >>42563650 idea. He will probably have a hell of a poker face.>>42564057Plus it teaches Will how to cheat.
>>42563995You just want an excuse for drunken strip poker don't you?
>>42564057Sounds like a job for Nem.
>>42564175Eventually in the future but not now.
>>42564175Will won't get drunk. Can't say much for the others. If you can get them to agree in the first place.
>>42564240Well, Will can get drunk, it just takes an unholy amount. As for people agreeing... It's probably Nem or Bellona's idea, the other would agree I think. I could see Mary getting in on it depending on the situation and if Bell is play and Will is there Cath will be too. Not sure about Morrigan or Sarah.
Alright, I'm back but give me a bit to settle in. I see there's been some interesting discussion while I'm gone.
>>42564340Morrigan might join in if it looks like it's gonna get out of hand. Or.. if it looks like it's gonna get out of hand.
>>42564175excuse?.... naaaah more like a reason. what do you get if you take one extremely traumatized teenage that is almost immune to liquor add six sexy woman that can kill you in a heartbeat add all the booze and strip poker?i dont know but i want to find outOr maybe they will find out where William keeps his artillery....Either way i cant wait to see Morrigans face when she sees on in the nude
>>42564757Ok, Looks like talking to Morrigan wins, probably ask about boredom and New York. Anybody want to ask about sleeping with another person if it's cold?
>>42565052>Anybody want to ask about sleeping with another person if it's cold?yes
>>42565052>Anybody want to ask about sleeping with another person if it's cold?Uh I guess if you can flow the conversation that way. Seems kind of random at the moment you know?
>>42565074You're driving in an open topped truck in a brisk late autumn/early winter day. I can make it work. >>42565063>>42565077>>42565081>>42565090Nobody mentioned it, so I was just checking.
>>42563650You decide that you should talk to Morrigan, as it’s both a bit windy as you drive and Cath doesn’t talk very loudly so you aren’t sure if you can carry on a conversation with her. Morrigan also seems to be a bit bored like you are, so it might help a bit with that. Turning a little bit you can see that Morrigan is still tapping her foot on the bed and fingers on the top of the roof as she looks forwards, occasionally getting a face full of exhaust from one of the trucks in front of you. Taking a check of the area in front of you, you decide it’s alright to talk. “Morrigan?” you ask her. “Yeah Billy?” she calls back, seemingly grateful to have something to do though she doesn’t move her head that much. “How do you not be bored?” you say. This causes Morrigan to glance back at you for a bit before she turns forwards again. “Normally I smoke,” she says, her fingers tapping increasing a little at the mention of it, “But since Koko has munitions on board I can’t smoke, which sucks.” She pauses for a minute. “Other than that… well you can sleep or talk to people. This is an army convoy so it probably falls under the old saying about hurry up and wait. In this case it just means we get to be on guard while we are bored. Boredom is good sometimes Will, it means you aren’t getting shot at.” Morrigan continues to tap, “Even if it does suck sometimes.”
>>42565673You nod, not feeling quite as bad as before about the boredom. It’s a good way to look at it, you could be getting shot at or beaten or any number of other unpleasant things. Instead you’re just bored. You start to go over a few things in your mind, mostly stuff Doc Smith taught you, but also anything else that comes to mind. Eventually you drift over to New York, wondering what it’s like besides the big green lady statue. “Morrigan?” you ask again, “What’s New York like?” Morrigan stops her tapping for a moment, then resumes. “New York is big,” she finally says, “really big. Even the ruins are big. It doesn’t have nearly as many people as it did before, but it’s still the biggest city in America. The buildings are taller than anything you’ve probably ever seen, there are so many buildings you could drop Fort Riley inside and they probably wouldn’t notice.” Morrigan stops and glance back at you again. “The people there probably aren’t going to be as polite as the ones in Fort Riley, so if somebody says something to you try not to get me or Mary to deal with them ok?”
>>42565699“Ok,” you say even as a few flurries of snow start to fall from the dark sky. Glancing up you remember that you wanted to ask Morrigan about her early statement that you shouldn’t sleep with anyone until you ask her. “Morrigan?” you ask again, this time waiting until she responds. “What Billy?” she says, sounding a bit annoyed but you’re pretty sure it’s not at you, at least not directly at you. “It’s cold now,” you say, a flurry landing on your nose, “Is it ok to sleep with people if we’re both cold?” Morrigan’s fingers suddenly stop tapping again, this time staying that way. You turn back to look at her and see her frozen on top of the truck. Out of the corner of your eye you see Cath looking too, one of her eyebrows raised. “Morrigan?” you ask again. “Damnit Billy,” you hear her say almost at a mutter, “It… it’s complicated alright? I…” she stops, turning to look at you. “Why do you want to know Billy?” she asks you in return, “I said ask me if you wanted to, not if somebody put it in your head.” You stop and think about your answer. >It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there. >Mary said it might get cold and that she could keep us warm…>I just did.
>>42565727>It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there.
>It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there.
>>42565727>>It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there.
>>42565727>Mary said it might get cold and that she could keep us warm…
>>42565727>>It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there."It's starting to snow..."
>>42565727>I just did.Well it's the truth.
>>42565727>>42565727Oh boy. Well, if we're asking, we might as well do it out of our own volition. Makes us seem more assertive. Though I'd prefer it if Cath were an option here...>It’s cold now. I don’t like the cold and you might not be there.
>>42565835Oh, anon, Cath is always an option.
Rolled 31, 31 = 62 (2d100)
>>42565868Consider yourself checked bro.
>>42565868Is this an omen?
>>42565868>31WHAT DOES IT MEAN?????
>>42565868I swear to god if that had totalled 69
This is the first time I've ever been in time to catch one of the quest I read while it's running.Thanks Guide for running so many awesome quests.
We need something like that made for Will.And maybe each of the girls regarding Will.
Alright, looks like we have our answer. Writing. >>42565954Seeing as how I've only run two, it can't be that many but I appreciate it!
>>42565978Does this mean we get headpats and cuddles from Morrigan tonight?
>>42566027Does Morrigan seem like the headpats and cuddles type?
Rolled 51, 45 = 96 (2d100)>>42566027brehofc
>>42566066That ultimately depends on you; it could be her fetish.
>>42566066Well I mean she is a bit clingy.
>>42566027>>42566089Anon, stop being a moe hugbox slut and think about the characterization please.>>42566066No, at most a awkward headpat, and that'd be if Will pushed for one. He won't.
>>42566089>>42566126>>42566128>>42566133See this... this is why I want to do more character development. Just so I can air all the little things I have about the characters in my head.
>>42566128What do you mean by that? I would never describe Morrigan as clingy.
>>42566133A man can dream damn you!Although I don't think will would know what to do if he got headpats.
>>42566157When she was drunk and wouldn't get off of Will when he carried her back.
>>42566163Why'd she put her hand on my head? Did I mess up? Was I not useful? PANIC.gif
>>42566089>it could be
>>42566192>it will befixed
>>42566163Confusion at first. Then his leg would start kicking and he'd have no idea why.
>>42565727It really doesn’t take you that long to give her an answer, seeing as how most of your wants and needs are pretty simple. Don’t go hungry, don’t get beaten, make people happy by helping and don’t be cold. It is of course this last one that’s your primary motivator at the moment. “It’s cold,” you say, lifting you hand up to the general direction of the grey sky and the flurries falling from it, “I don’t like to be cold.” You turn to look at her again, “You said to ask before I did it and you might not be there to ask if I’m cold.” Morrigan seems to soften a little bit at your answer, blowing air out of her mouth and turning back forwards on the truck. “Alright Billy,” she finally says, “I can’t argue with that. If you feel like you want to and only then, I don’t see a problem with it.” She stops and turns to point her finger at you. “But if they start to do something you don’t like you tell them to stop, make them stop alright?” You nod to her. “Ok,” you say, unsure as to what exactly sleeping could involve that you wouldn’t like, but Morrigan said there was, so there must be something. Morrigan sighs again and then nods. “Thanks Billy,” she says, turning back forwards again, “I just… don’t want anything weird to happen to you.” You nod, giving another glance to Cath who seems to have a thoughtful look on her face. Eventually everyone turns back to their posts, the sound of the trucks engines the only real noise in the quiet day.
>>42566436Eventually you stop, roughly halfway to your destination as one of the trucks blows a tire and it needs to be changed. Everyone hops out of their vehicles and forms a perimeter, various people taking the time for a quick bathroom break amongst what little privacy they can find. As you stand watch next to Morrigan Mary comes up, giving you a grin. “Anything exciting up in truck one?” she asks. “Just Will being a chatterbox,” says Morrigan, taking the time to get in a quick smoke. Mary turns to look at you, “Oh really? Anything you want to ask the rest of us?” she asks. As she does you hear shouts and the trucks start up, meaning it’s time to go again. A quick glance to Morrigan only gets you a shrug, so you’ll have to make the decision yourself. >Stay in the first truck. >Go to Mary’s truck.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>425665191: Stay in the first truck. 2: Go to Mary’s truck.Let the dice decide!
>>42566519>>Go to Mary’s truck.
>>42566519>Go to Mary’s truck.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>42566540>>42566519I will follow this man's lead
>>42566579>>42566570>>42566561>>42566556>>42566551>>42566550>>42566549>>42566545>>42566540>>42566596It seems that Will has some business on Mary's truck, the dice gods saith so, as does anon. Writing.
>>42566579You certainly, WILL, aha hah...
>>42566608Hand over your blankets anon, you've gone too far.
Had to grab dinner, back to writing soon.
So how do we mess with Bellona like we did with Morrigan?
>>42567542"Would you sleep with me tonight?"
>>42567542Ask someone else to sleep with Will while in front of her.
>>42567551Even better.I am cold tonight.And just leave it at that.
>>42566519You pretty easily decide that a change of position to the second truck wouldn’t be out of place, so you nod and follow Mary towards it. You climb in the back just like before, but Mary waves you forwards near the cab so she can still yell and hear you. Nem and Bellona both give you smiles as you climb in, which you return with a nod. Taking the position behind Mary you find that the ride is much the same as it was when you were in the other truck, though Bellona seems to give you a glance every now and then and Nem is nearly bouncing on her toes. Mary seems to focus on driving for the first couple minutes, but eventually she finds a steady pace as the convoy forges onwards through what is starting to become an actual snowstorm, though it isn’t a bad one by any means. “So what were you talking about with Morrigan?” Mary calls out to you through the window, the steady drone of the trucks engine allowing better conversation than when shifting gears repeatedly is necessary. “Boredom,” you reply with first, “New York and staying warm.” “Sounds like some big conversations for you,” Mary says back, though it is clear it’s a bit awkward for her to talk to you. “Yeah,” you reply. “Learn anything interesting?” “New York is big, boredom is good and staying warm with people is fine.” You see Mary glance at you out of one of the mirrors. “Oh is it now?” she says, “Good to hear, wouldn’t want to get cold on the trip.”
>>42567694You shake your head in agreement, though once you’re done you can’t say for sure if Mary saw it or not. She probably understands anyway, Mary’s like that. You try to focus on looking out for a while and are eventually interrupted by Bellona calling out to you. “Will,” she asks, mostly looking at you though you can tell that she’s still paying a bit of attention to being on guard, “What exactly were you saying earlier about staying warm?” >Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people. >Morrigan said it was ok to sleep with people. >I like to stay warm?>Other.
>>42567713>>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people. AND >>I like to stay warm?We must mess with the Belladona.
>>42567713>>Morrigan said it was ok to sleep with people.It begins...
>>42567713>I like to stay warm?
>>42567713>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.>I like to stay warm?
>>42567713>Morrigan said it was okay to sleep with people to stay warm. I like staying warm.
>>42567713>>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people. >>I like to stay warm?
>>42567713>>Morrigan said it was ok to sleep with people.
So anons do think alike.
>>42567713>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.
>>42567713>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.Then we should stay warm with Nem or Mary. I wanna see her face.
>>42567713>Morrigan said it was ok to sleep with people.
>>42567713>I like to stay warm>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.
>>42567713>I like to stay warm?and>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.
>>42567713>>Morrigan says it’s ok to stay warm with people.
Alright, looks like we've got a pretty clear answer. Writing.
>>42567917Were you expecting anything else Guide?
>>42567944Dunno. I try not to guess what you'll hivemind on, because when I try to do it you'll surprise me. Probably expected a bit more "Hue Hue" votes.
>>42567964Don't worry Guide, we'll give you huehuehue soon enough.
>>42568013That's what I'm worried about.
>>42568060no more gib.
>>42568226You're newfagness is showing anon.
>>42568234Well I mean it's not rare for people to not be aware of Hues issues in the Snek quest.That's sort of a niche group of questers.
>>42568234I only know of huehuehue the DM and of Brazil. Please enlighten me.
>>42568266I hope Huehuehue the dm is doing ok.
>>42568303I am sure he went to the same quest master heaven Weaver and Reaver and all the other dead DMs go to.
>>42568349I miss Damp and crosswire. They're all fine on the farm right?
>>42568431Crosswire is still alive, Just dealing with RL he should be back soonish if all goes well.
>>42568431I miss Hoboking and Char.
>>42568431What about that one DM that made a quest about an old veteran being hunted down for things he did in the past, when he is trying to live out a quiet life on a frontline planet?Or the beep boop motherfucker DM that abandoned us not once but twice?
you fuckers now i miss Papa_n
>>42568349>>42568727Thats who I was talking about. I hope he gets through things ok and doesn't have a relapse.
>>42568466Shit I hope so. He left right when things were about to get good.
>>42568788ya me too
>>42567713You look up at Bellona as she approaches, and then shrug. “It’s cold,” you say to her, “But I like to stay warm. Morrigan said it was ok to stay warm with people as long as they didn’t do weird things.” You of course aren’t exactly sure what said weird things are, but that’s probably not a big deal. Bellona seems to pause as you speak, one of the corners of her mouth quirking again. “Just as long as they don’t do anything weird huh?” she says, “Well I guess that’s good to know.” She looks about, the light snow still falling, though not much is sticking to the ground, “I may take you up on that sometime if you don’t mind, I get cold pretty easily.” You stop and think for a minute yourself. That makes sense, you shared a blanket with both Cath and Bellona before when it was a bit chilly. If it happened before they might want it to happen again. Plus Mary said she could help keep you warm and Morrigan had kinda sorta said she would if you wanted too. That probably meant that they got cold too. You look and see Bellona give you a smile again. “Just keep me in mind if you get cold,” she says, sliding back down the truck bed a little bit. You turn and look at Nem, whom you’ve never really heard complain about the weather one way or the other and she just gives you a big grin and a nod, so you turn back to watching the road. The rest of the trip is mostly quiet, though thre’s a bit of chatter between you Nem and Bellona, mostly about what you’re going to do in New York.
>>42568921Bellona wants to go see the big green metal lady while apparently Nem mostly just wants to explore the city, which is supposedly home to all sorts of treasure that just got left behind when people left. Bellona countered with the fact that it’d been years and it was probably picked over already, but Nem just said she didn’t have a sense of “Adventure”. You mostly refrained from commenting, but did admit you wanted to see this ocean thing and all the tall buildings. Eventually you start to see signs of people around the road, a few small farms out in the distance and such. By the time you’re getting close to your destination you see more along with a patrol of soldiers who all wave at you. As you approach your destination proper you see lots of houses, a lot more than there were at Fort Riley. Looking around you can’t quite believe that New York can be bigger, as you’ve never seen so many. Off in the distance you can even see a few really tall buildings. Nem notices your wide eyes and sidles up next to you. “Never seen a city before?” she asks you.
Yes its finally back! For how much longer will it run tonight though?
>>42568948You shake your head no. “Well, don’t take this the wrong way, but this place is small compared to where I grew up,” she says, patting you on the back, “And New York is bigger.” “Really?” you ask as the convoy finally pulls up next to where you’re going to hop off, a place filled with more trucks and lots of people. “Really,” says Nem as she grabs her SMG and prepares to hop off the truck, “There’s a lot for you to see in this world Will, lots to learn.” She smiles, “So don’t go thinking you know everything yet.” You nod, hopping off the truck after Nem as Morrigan calls for everyone to gather round. “Alright,” she says once everybody is gathered, “We don’t have a lot to do at the moment since Koko is handling the loading and they’ve got people trained to do it. But we are headed out shortly, so I want all of our gear packed and on the train by the time it’s ready to go. We’ve apparently got two sleeper cars for the seven of us near the back and Koko’s stuff, so we’ll figure out who’s sleeping where when we get settled. Let’s go people!” As Morrigan starts to lead the way, you finally get a decent look at what you’ll be taking to New York. It’s big and metal and steaming, but you think that you might want to poke around with it. Nem was right, you’ve still got a lot to learn.
>>42568963About thirty seconds unfortunately. That's it for tonight guys, sorry for all the delays and crap but I've gotten in a decent bit of writing tonight and I have to be up for school and doctors appointment and stuff. I hope you enjoyed the things that happened and will continue to read as we go forwards on our journey. Also, finally answering this question. >>42563471Honestly, probably not. I's too big, too bloated and unless I just massively upped the danger level John is too overpowered to be scared of anything. I might run a end of the world battle thread sometime since I had that slightly planned out, but normal runs are unlikely at best. If I ever do something like it again, which I've considered, it'll more than likely be a reboot with new characters, though probably the same fun tone, not as much raw world bending ability and a bit less giant ass badguys from nowhere. Q&A like normal and again, sorry for the shortish run time.
>>42568976What the hell kinda train is that?
>>42569094How many lewd things about will is going through Bells mind right now?
>>42569094thanks for running
>>42569094It's good to see you back. Is there any outlook for a regular schedule or is it still up in the air?>but normal runs are unlikely at best. Not even a small one that concludes our beach episode? Honestly, just finishing up that little segment should give a lot more room for a proper ending.
>>42569094Thanks for running! Your schedule clearing up any?
>>42569094Thanks for the run Guide, good to see you back.As for HPQ, I thought it was decided to have random adventures/char explorations or w/e when ever you felt like running it. Either way I'm fine with what you decide.
Agh I was too late! Ah well it's nice to see you again Guide! Bug I gotta ask, will there be more regular threads from now on?
>>42569105Steam train, probably eastern European IRL, but I was having trouble finding pictures of ones that were armored but not completely bristling with guns. >>42569133Depends on what you consider lewd. >>42569138Thanks for reading. >>42569164Outlook on a regular schedule is up in the air, much as I hate it. I am literally in my last semester of college, so I really need to not fail any classes. If there was demand I might do a run or two, but it'd be largely narrative based since with 15 girls I can't just let anon choose everything like I did. Plus, we were in the middle of tiny John, so the beach is mostly done. >>42569193Not particularly, but if I can get a steady sleep schedule going and buckle down on classes maybe. >>42569202Again, that involves me wanting to run it. Seeing as how Mercs is my current active quest and I can't even regularly schedule it, HPQ is far from my mind most of the time. >>42569233Sorry man, but it's good to be appreciated. Like I said above, I'll try to get more regular but I can't promise anything.
>>42569094>No KarasubaSorry Guide but if you reboot it without her it's shit.
>>42569094Thanks for running Guide. Even if you can't run often, it's still enjoyable when you do. I certainly am sad about HPQ, but I unders what you're saying on it. And if you do indeed do a HPQ v2, I'll certianly be there. I will miss the Tatsuko cuddles though... She'll always be my favorite.
>>42569288Thanks for running, man.If you do opt to reboot HPQ, I'd be more than up for playing it. And maybe we could get Rias that time around, eh? Eeeeeeh~?
>>42569377>>42569402>>42569439Honestly, if I tried to just straight up reboot HPQ, I feel there would be more issues than if I started over. I know who the favorite three or four were, Kaname, Karasuba, Tatsuko and maybe Chris, but who gets the last spot? How do I fit them into the plot? Do I just ditch them? Etc. etc. So if I restarted, it'd be a clean slate with new girls and a new protag. I mean, I'm not a complete anime nerd but there are plenty of awesome girls still out there, even if Karasuba and Cuddlebug will always have a place in my heart. >>42569439Maybe, maybe. Though Mercs needs to be done before I seriously consider running it. I don't want to be the Guide who always quits halfway through.
>>42569377Karasuba is best waifu, you have good taste.
>>42569488>>42569377You guys don't know how completely surprised I was when the thread unanimously decided the scary gym teacher would be a waifu. I'm glad you did though.
>>42569439Honestly, I liked how, for the most part, the girls of HPQ weren't the main girl(s) of their respective series. Those side characters need love too, afterall.>>42569479And if I had a request, it be for Mizore.
>>42569521The scary gym teacher is always best waifu.
>>42569521That's the thing with /tg/. If you give them the ability to throw themselves headfirst into a vat of acid without any serious consequences, they'll do it. Why? Because they could. The fact they got a waifu out of it was a bonus.
>>42569521All i ask is that if you do a redo let Karasuba in there and let us have the option to waifu her.
>>42569521She was best girl with personality.
>>42569479I know for me, Kaname was always my #1. Heh, I was the one who proclaimed her John's 'Main Girl' when she turned out to be the first other sentient person we met.Chris was definitely my #2, though. I always liked how you presented her, and I liked how she became the Tactician of the group. It gave her a good dynamic that didn't get explored much in her source material.
>>42569608Well, maybe not leave her in if all other characters were swapped. Maybe another violence fetishist that could recieve a heart of gold.Revy?
>>42569580>>42569581>>42569648The fights between you and her, as well as her whole sequence in getting her back were fun to write and I'm glad I did. >>42569608Though I might consider it, I don't want to start reusing characters too much. >>42569566Again, we'll see if it ever happens. >>42569664 I enjoyed writing Kaname as the ground for the group and Chris whenever she got a chance to shine. Plus you know, Kaname fixed the Grail. Whoop.
>>42569723thats a very dangerous game we would play im with you 100%
>>42569732That's another reason why we liked everyone. They were a bunch of bad-asses.
I still think you could take HPQ out for an occasional one-shot to resolve side quests like meeting Chris' dad if you need to take a break from Merc 2030. The plot would be simpler and you'd be able to focus on a smaller number of characters.
>>42569841>like meeting Chris' dadwe did that already
>>42569288Thanks for the run, guide. I missed it completely, but I appreciated it none the less..
Damn, late to the party... Thanks for running.
