You are Tom Gainer. You and your Minotaur friend, Jim Knots, are staring down the street gang known as the Talon and their hired Villain. Only problem is that the asshole looks like a white guard rail pylon trying to be gangster. Its... pretty annoying. On top of that, he is coining names that you really really want to punch him in the mouth for, but you have NO clue what the jackass is capable of. Other than the jackass, the Talon are done. You and Jim (mostly you) have put the fear of god into them.You and Jim stare at him for what feels like hours before he makes a move. He walks closer to you both, hand in front of his crotch like he is both trying to protect it and hold his pants up so he can actually move."Now, ya'll I consider mahself a good sport wen it comes ta Supah fights. One-on-one style. I'mma show you why they call me Py-Riot!" You think to yourself that he gave himself that shitty-ass Super name.>Banter and volunteer (Write in)>Banter and tag-team (Write in + d100+ preferred skill)>Solo Murderhobo option (d100+10 -1 karma, terrible ramifications for Jim)>Other?

>>45825335>>45825425The deaf accepts his loss of a 97, but would like to remind everyone of the mass of wannabes after we finish. A+ condition after Villain takedown is not guaranteed. And of course the fucker if going to use powers. Why else would he challenge us?

>>45825577Patience. We have no idea what the hell's she's like. Also don't wanna piss off Jim.
>>45825493"Okay then. I'll fight. One on one. Hand to hand. No powers. Final Destination." You grin at your own nerd joke as PyRiot or whatever he calls himself blinks with surprise and confusion."Okay, dawg, its yo funeral." He steps up and puffs up his chest. One hand his still over his crotch but the other is wide out to the side. "Cuz Imma be a good sport, Imma letchu take da first shot."You shrug walk up, and nail him right on the jaw, sending the string bean sprawling back."Daaaaaammmmn dawg, you hit haard." He draws out the words as he stands back up. He is grinning which makes you a little uncomfortable. "In fact, you hit too hard. I'm a good sport, but not that good." Shit. He's a Villain, of course he's not going to play fair. You feel like that is just ridiculously stereotypical and you lose any respect you had for him when he got up from your punch.That's when the stupid starts. With a name like PyRiot, you generally assumed he had some kind of fire-based powers, so when his hands lit on fire, you were pretty underwhelmed. Even more so when BOTH of his hands ignited in flames, instantly starting a blaze on the location his hand was covering. The kid panics and screams. Jim is laughing. You are:>Laughing>"Putting it out" (Free crotch shot)>Write in

>>45826593BLESSED AND WITNESSEDFOR DA LAWD HAVE ANSWERED YER PRAYER
>>45826000Its a trap. It has to be. No one acts that stupid without it being an act. You're going to keep your guard up. PyRiot continues howling and rolling on the ground. He'll realize you aren't falling for it, put himself out and try a different strategy. Any second now.Any time.God you must be fighting the worst Villain on the East Cost. You scratch your eyebrows in irritation and walk up to him. He has managed to put out the fire but- is... is he crying. He's holding both of his hands between his legs and sobbing softly. You guess other than his hands, he isn't completely immune to his own fire. "Okay, Firecrotch." Jim intervenes now that he has recomposed himself. He picks up the wannabe gangster by the back of shirt. "You see what my friend here did the the concrete wall, right?" He points the boy at your handiwork. You think he turns an even lighter shade of pale. "Now he just promised to fight you without the possibility of turning you into a tiny cloud of pink mist. And you want to turn this into a Powers match. You some kind of moron?""I- I- Er..." He stammers as the looks up at Jim. The Minotaur drops kid and the boy scrambles away he shouts back at the two of you. "You... YOU JUST LUCKY I AIN'T TIME FO YOU TWO!!! I GOTS BIG THINGS TA TAKE CARE OF!" Right...There is a moment of silence between you and Jim as the last of the Talons wander away, broken and quite frightened of both of you."Well that was fucking anti-climactic." You burst out. You sound angry and disappointed.>You have routed the Talons. What do?>Pillage>Burn>Drive Through Arby's>Make sure this gets on the news papers
>>45826686>Drive Through Arby'sSo..... Arby's? Love some curly cue fries.>Make sure this gets on the news papers

for when you got to get your murder hobo onhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkVsuO2Ichk
>>45826849 >>45826776 >>45826821 >>45826899That wasn't very satisfying, you think to yourself, might as well see if they still have anything good in their hideout. You express this to Jim who seems ready to just go with what you think is good. The two of you walk into the giant birdcage the Talon gang called home and notice that the door to the maintenance building is still wide open. You peek inside and see that it had been retrofitted into a supply room. There are also several things here that seem to be severely burnt. A little closer examination and you are confident these 'things' were actually small animals. You are almost glad PyRiot, or Firecrotch as Jim's nickname for the douche just seems more entertaining, is a completely incompetent psychopath."Hey its my hedge trimmer!" Jim exclaims as he pulls a power tool from a pile of objects. "And that the Reillys' bean bag game." He points out other things that belong to members of his community. You have the idea to bring back what you can and sort out the items so that when you tell the neighborhood that the cost is clear, they can come up here and claim their belongings. There are far too many things here for even Jim to carry back."All things considered, Jim." You make conversation while you sort a pile into power tool and toys. "This is going to look really good for you. All we have to do now is make sure this gets noticed.""Yeah. I think Judd Greene, around the corner, reports for the local paper. That's his kid's skateboard right there." Its obviously made for an 8 year old, with the picture of a blue stag beetle on the deck of the board. "This should make my case even stronger!" Jim grins widely, this is probably the happiest you've seen him ever.[CONT]
>>45827636Once you finish and head back to town, you decide you are hungry. The whole ordeal only took about an hour and sorting the loot out took three times as long. Its about 2 in the afternoon now. You suggest to Jim that you go out to celebrate your victory at a local fast food stand."I have a better idea." Jim motions for you to follow him. You follow him down several streets until you reach what you assume is the edge of the neighborhood. Its only now you realize this is, in fact, a gated community. A large concrete wall surrounds the last houses. Just outside the walls, sits an old 50s styled diner. "That's the diner a buddy of mine owns: Big Buck's Diner. Best burgers and Curly fries this side of the States."The two of you go inside and are treated to the dulcet tones of Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds. A portly, balding man roughly 6'5" cleans a glass behind the counter."BUCK! How you been?!" Jim bellows out!"Well if it isn't Jim Knots! Who's the kid? You scaring the shit out of Serah's new boyfriend?" He teases, but quickly apologizes once he sees Jim's face fall. "Shit, pal, I'm sorry. I completely forgot. I just can't imagine you two being away from each other. She always seemed glued to your hip." He puts a friendly, consoling hand on Jim's shoulder. He reaches just about as well as you do, but it doesn't seem to look quite as awkward."Meals are on the house! What brings you out here?" Buck directs the question at you.>Victory meals! We scared the Talons out of the old zoo.>Just hanging out.>A change of pace.
>>45827879>Victory meals! We scared the Talons out of the old zoo.Time to let eeeeeeeeevvvvvverybody know that we're big damn heroes.
>>45827879>Victory meals! We scared the Talons out of the old zoo.

>>45827940>>45827990>>45828003>>45828042Lunch of Champions! Writan!
>>45828137"Ah, you know, not too much. Jim and I just kicked the Talons out of their own hideout!" You give a wry smile and glance up at Buck, who looks surprised and quite ecstatic."No fuckin way! Those asshole've been messing with my garden gnomes for weeks. Putting them in inappropriate positions for all the kids around the block to see." You have a hard time picturing Buck as a garden gnome kind of guy. "Good to see those chumps get the boot before they get real spines. For that, you guys are getting meals the next week!" He laughs and slaps Jim on the back. The two of them share more laughs through lunch. You order up a couple of the greasiest burgers you have ever laid eyes on. After taking a bite, you dive into the unfathomable tastes that also harder your arteries. Jim wasn't messing around when brought you here. Its a real treat.>You have some down time with Jim.>Talk about Serah>Talk about your next step.>Talk about Supers.>Ask about other Monstrous Supers.
>>45828367>>Talk about Serah>>Talk about your next step.i wanna know how we can prove to them that Jim is a good parent
>>45828367>>Ask about other Monstrous Supers.>Talk about Serah>Talk about your next step.See if there are any others in the immediate area that we can recruit as allies, and then find out more about Serah and gettting her back, and THEN talk about newspaper recognition and ask about other gangs and authorities in the area who might not like vigilantes.
>>45828463Add:Authorities are not our enemy! Just might not like us that much. Clarification.
>>45828367>Talk about Serah>Talk about your next step.>Ask about other Monstrous Supers.
>>45828558More customers walk into the diner and Buck returns to work. That leaves you and Jim to talk business. You in by asking more questions about Crimson Beach. Specifically, you ask about other Monstrous Supers that might be in the area. Jim looks upwards in thought and scratches the fluff on his chin that you could easily assume to be a beard."I remember hearing on the news there were actually quite a few that popped up thanks to the Incident. The only one I've seen outside of my own reflection was some kid who turned into a giant swarm of bugs right on television. I'm talking like Egyptian Plague level of swarm. It... was kind of disturbing." Oh joy, you think to yourself, bugs. "I'll admit once this all started I really didn't leave the neighborhood except for work and whenever Serah wanted to go to glare at kids in the mall." He chuckles at the memory of that last remark."Speaking of Serah," You interject. "What else can we do to prove that Serah is perfectly safe in your care?""I don't know. Maybe get some people to vouch for me. Some references saying I'm a stand up guy?" He shrugs. He probably knows as much about the System as you do. "Probably should hire a lawyer, too."That would probably take a lot of the questions out of this adventure.>We should lawyer up first>Lets get some testimonies.>How do the cops treat vigilante Supers?>Write In

>>45829281Actually 72-10, mah bad.
>>45828976"We should probably find a lawyer first." You think out loud."In that case, we'll need to go to Platinum Towers. They have support programs for Supers not associated with the Union for things like this. Especially when it comes to Monstrous Supers like me." Makes sense that the guys who claim to be support for all Supers to have a legal division. They probably offer discounts for Supers through their policies or something like that, you think. On the subject of non-Union supers..."So what is the general outlook for vigilante Supers? Like with the cops, I mean." You take a sip of the soft drink that came with your meal."Officially, they frown upon vigilantism, but there have been several instances where "Good Samaritans" who just happen to be Supers assist in arrests and firefights. I think the only times they've publicly denounced vigilantes was the time a few went and performed their own 'justice' on a Villain who turned out to be a Super who couldn't control her powers. Three of them were arrested on murder charges, I think." That seems... well that seems pretty fair, when you think about it. Don't take justice into your own hands, and the hard-pressed cops won't arrest you for doing something without the Union's club card. You think you might actually like these guys.The two of you finish your meals and you make a note to yourself to ask Buck for a testimony on Jim's behalf when you get him set up with a PT appointed lawyer.Jim's pleasant expression slowly fades as you assume he is worrying about his daughter. From stories you've heard as well its portrayal in media, the System is not a pleasant place to be.>Lawyer time nao>Locate Serah for Jim, update him on her.

>>45829654To the Towers we go! Writing!
>>45829654You advise your friend that they should seek legal counsel ASAP. He thinks that would probably be for the best as well. He then informs you that the last bit of help he had from Platinum Towers was the custom truck he drives now. Apparently the half ton Minotaur doesn't fit in normal cars anymore. You can't help but laugh and utter the pun you're thinking of."A Monster Truck." Jim tries to keep a straight face, but it doesn't last long and he starts laughing too.--------------You and Jim arrive at the Platinum Towers branch an hour and a half later. Just as Jim said, the buildings and even the surrounding area look completely untouched by the current events raging through Crimson Beach. It looks like how you remember the whole city looking. Clean, shining, and a little futuristic. Jim parks his truck and the two of you walk into the lobby. There is a receptionist behind a clear glass desk at the other end of the room. The first thing you notice is that she could be considered Monstrous by the definition of the word. Her hair consists of white feathers and the outside of her arms are covered in larger feathers as well. You are pretty sure she can fly on those. Taking advantage of the color palate and avian theme, she wears a white blazer and skirt with a black blouse black heels. Her lips are lined with a yellow lipstick. All in all, she is quite attractive."Welcome to Platinum Towers!" She pipes up cheerfully as the two of you enter. You could describe her voice as fair and feathery as her hair. "Do you have an appointment?" You think she is genuine in her enthusiasm."N-no, but I need to talk to someone about a legal matter." Jim fidgets nervously. Is he... blushing?"I'm sorry to hear that." She taps on her computer. "I'm sending a message up now. If someone is available, I'll be able to tell you where to go. If not, I can set up an appoint for you!" She puts on a perky smile and motions for the two of you to sit on the massive sofas.[CONT]
>>45830388These things are real comfy, you comment to yourself. Jim seems to sit nicely on them, opposed to the comically small Lazyboy chair he sits in at home. There is nothing for you to do now, but wait to hear back from Platinum Towers' legal division.[END OF THREAD]Sorry for cutting it short today, ladies and gents, but I'm beat. I'll post up a quick character summary and answer a few questions for a while, but I don't have the creative juices to work on the narrative for the rest of the night.

>>45830500Thanks fer the game bruh.Is it possible recruit Pyriot if we helped him with his crotch-fire incident?
>>45830573I'll be honest, PyRiot hates you for ruining his paycheck among other varied reasons. It would be very, very difficult to convince him you are on his side.Also he burns small animals alive. He's kind of a dick.
>>45830647Though the crotch fire was due to a nat 1 on a secret roll of my own.
>>45830548How do we improve on sanic drill? Is there time for that?
>>458306971d100 nat 1?damn, dice gods really hate those who burns small animals...or powers in general
>>45830701Also, it's possible to put out flames with sound pulses. Would it be possible to counter Great Balls of Fire with sick bass?
>>45830701You can probably do the drill at range with a pulse without the risk of exploding your hand. It would take precision practice and a lot of time.>>45830740Indeed it is. I probably made Tom's control a bit OP. I thank the dice gods for helping me maintain a balance.

Next thread (probably tomorrow) I will be replacing FSQM with my actual handle SixWingZombi as I have some other Quests in mind that I might initiate once I start college next month.
Step one, get ally who manipulates puppets. Step two, David Bowie outfit. Step three, fight crime as the goblin king.
