Previous: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1106542/Char Sheet: http://pastebin.com/mYBvajGnOther Character Sheets!: http://pastebin.com/K05wcqLy <Going to add emi as soon as I can>-Current situation. There's a bus where the front wall of the bank used to be. Structural damage....not yet severe enough to warrant evacuation. Ragtags Revenant, Monkey, Tubs and Chemi'cal are accompanied by an unknown creature. Its black as soot and masculine, like a monstrous version of my brother, mixed with some sort of fish and reptile by the shape of its features and limbs. Revenant is still in her altered stare and wants to kill me, so nothing out of the ordinary there.I'm guessing she also threw the buss through the wall, as neither she, the two useless idiots, Chemi, or the unknown have suffered injuries akin to wrecking a buss through several feet of solid concrete and steel. This probably isn't good, not that I don't think I could at least come up with some plan to overcome these jokers again. I mean it would be much more difficult since I just have Emi with me, but still with the right planning and tactics, being out numbered means little to nothing. Especially when you have a plasma powered weapon and the ability to phase or create a disposable army.But I am not worried about myself, I am a chimera, I may not like it, but we were designed for a purpose .Even if I refuse to follow it.Yes, I am not worried for my own safety, even though I'm in quite a pickle and currently facing down two, potentially three dangerous Ultras. No I'm worried about them and everyone with in a few mile radius.Revenant is a force of destruction, a force that grows much more devastating as her rage overrides her senses. and that is without even factoring in her functional immortality and inhuman resilience.Chemi is mad, plain and simple. Violent and volatile. anything that happens to revenant can potentially send into her in a murderous rage. However she Doesn't look upset or mad at me for some reason, however her production and control of an acid that is far more potent than any sort I've seen is a threat I can't ignore easily, as she could bring this building down if she used it correctly.The unknown variable, the black...creature with fish like fins and predatory teeth...I have no clue who or what that is, but I doubt The ragtags would bring anyone who wasn't at least somewhat strong...besides Monkey and tubs.Then there are the factors on my "side"Emi, has anger issues and can teleport. Might end up endangering herself or others in the coming confrontation. May have to reassimilate her for her own safetyMoriarty. From my experience, he is blunt and to the point,and has absolutely not reservations about using violence and or murder to get what he wants. He's also strapped with two more guns than I have inside of me. He might kill someonecont
>>1156494And then there's the most dangerous and threatening force here, a factor that I think could cause enough widespread damages in the fight that a member of the golden guard might show up, and other ultras would definitely come to investigate or try to stop.and that is Emily Smiles/ Wonderland, who is standing in front of me, her twin tails bobbing up and down on their own accord. No doubt because of her simply terrifying power.Now I just met her, and I'm not sure what she's actually like. She's playful sure, but she's also able to simply remove things from reality which is really....really scary. Not to mention she appears to be able to simply change anything to anything else, which scares me on principle alone.Now while she hasn't shown serious use of her god like power, If the ragtags force her hand or make her panic. And from what I've seen of her. That will....I don't want to think about it, just the thought scares me."Oh is she now?" Emily says, tilting her head as she tightens her metal mask back on, as Chemi's own gas mask spews out green fumes, while Emily's smokes with small trails of ultra."Yes, Revy is mine, stay away from him you cheap looking skank!" Chemi hisses, her voice gurgling as acid drips down her handsMoriarty slowly pulls back the safety on his pistol and moves his finger to the triggerEmi eyes narrow as the edges of her body begins to vanish and fade away.What do I do? Tell Chemi why she shouldn't pick a fight with Emily Use myself as bait, and run past the ragtags, phasing when I need to 1d20+cont Fire my plasma launcher so things don't escalate further 1d100 Shoot revenant with my laser rifle 1d100 Hold my hand up, and try to get everyone to calm down Try and convince Moriarty to put his gun down 1d20+int ask who the new guy is Pretend the building is about to collapse, so they don't end up actually making it collapse write in

I narrow my eyes, staring at the creature standing behind the rest of the ragtags...He isn't fully natural, I think I can see the telltale signs of programing and wiring somewhere within him, but its really hard to tell with all the other technology demanding my attention around me. But I am certain he has at least a little of it inside of him."Hey, who's the new member?" I ask, staring at the unknown variable as he does the same to me, grinning wickedly, almost hungrily "Don't think I've seen him before""He ain't a member"Tub snorts "Just an ally""Like I used to be then? Better run before they ditch ya boy" Emi says, giving the fat man an impressively furious glare"Tch nah, he ain't on loan like you were" Revenant sighs, her tails sticking upright, not taking her eyes off of me "And unlike you, I doubt he's going to start singing spirits praises like uncle tom""You never know, Emi makes friends a lot easier than any of you cunts do" Emi hisses as Emily starts laughing"Ah wow, I remember know, I saw it all on tv, mein gott" She chuckles, still watching Revenant who looks worried that he has someone else's attention besides Chemi now "You're still trying? after a utter trouncing like that? Oh I loooove determination like that""Back off skank, I already told you, she's my puppy" Chemi says, her sickly green eyes glowing as the mystery man steps closer to the rest of us"So can he talk?" I ask calmly as he smiles in a way that shouldn't be possible"Of course I can, I simply see no reason to do so" The thing says with a voice like a broken radio, washed over with oil...even though that wouldn't effect the sound at all besides"Oh? Want to try and contest that claim? I'm feeling a little playful today, and could use a bit of foreplay" Emily yawns, rocking her head back and forth as Chemi simply narrows her eyes, holding up her acid coated arm.Moriarty meanwhile just calmly lines up his shot between Emi and Emily"WAIT WAIT!" I shout holding my hand up as everyone turns to look at me"No no" Revenant growls angrily, ripping a chunk out of the wall"Ya think we're gonna let you get time to prepare, Man you're dumb" Monkey says from behind his mask "nah, this is on our terms now, dig?""Okay so you want to be buried then? this building is about to collapse" I say dully, lying completely "if we battle in here, we'll all end up crushed under rubble""So?" Emily huffs"....What?" Monkey says as the short and tiny revenant growls and looks around suspiciously"Ya know, I don't want to take the risk but" She says glancing at me "You really aren't some one I trust, and seeing you squashed is real tempting""Hmmmm" the fish man thing says eyeing up the walls as wellAlright, seems I need to do some convincing first, so I can keep them from actually collapsing this placecont

Now, lets see if Mr. Roomba spots what we did and out itself as a bot
"Oh right, of course you need convincing don't you" I sigh...this is why programs are easier to work with than people, they just need a line of script to listen to and nothing else.Hmm, wait actually that gives me an idea, if they won't believe what I'm saying then maybe if I add something for them to see they'll be less skeptical. Of course I can't just make the building shake but....their eyes are normal, they'll play tricks on them. I just need to give them a bit of a push in the direction I need.Crossing my arms, I stick out the fingers of my left hand and get to work-20+3= 23= success-"Can't you feel it shaking already?!" I shout as I start to make all the lights flickering, gripping the wires and connections, and sending feedback to make a few doors and filing cabinets he can't see close and open to."What are you?"Moriarty begins before he realizes what's going on, and without a word stumble forwards "SHIT""WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" Emi roars as I see Revenant's dog ears fall, as she glances at her little pack, with her tail between her legs"Alright...alright" She says, grabbing Chemi by the back as she marches away "We're getting the fuck out of here, Come on Monk and tubs, and you to""No need to say it twice" tubs wheezes as he runs out"On it boss" Monkey chuckles"Heeeeeey, revy not so rough" Chemi whines"Understood" the fish man hisses, never taking his eyes off of me, I think he knows what I did, he's got that look in his dead, empty eyes"What was all that about?" Emily asks as I walk forward "This place is ""Shhhh" Moriarty says putting a finger to his gas mask "don't say another word""Ah, I get it now, eve you clever devil" Emi giggles under her breath as I walk through the hole in the wall, the sun's light blinding me as"HEY COG HEAD CATCH!" Revenant screams"Hey, don't be so rude revy" Chemi huffs as a concrete trash can flies at meroll 1d20+agility or control

I gasp, and with barely enough time to react start to phase so I don't get hit by a giant block of concrete. Pretty sure if I get hit that's it for me, I'll at the very least have a handful of broken ribs, even with my costume.My skin turns to lines of code and fog right as the trashcan hits me, and breaks apart. I feel the force of it, but my body stops being physical the second it touches me. It still really hurts though, and I return to my body the second after it pass through me, clutching my gutRevenant laughs, hollering and hooting as I fall on my knee. Before Chemi pulls on her caller, making her gasp and whine. I glance up and see the unknown variable rushing towards me, like a streak of ink over a fresh piece of paper.Oh, it has claws as well?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DScfpvfNzvs-However, judging from the angle of his strikes, he's aiming to impair me, and cripple my legs instead of do any serious damage or even kill me. He's holding back, so obviously he either detests violence or much more likely has an ulterior motive.But the second of aiming it takes before he strikes gives me enough time to reach up and grab his hands by the wrists and stand up. And when I do I'm eye level with his teeth. The things skin is like rubber and probably is, the texture is similar to my suit actually, but thicker!"Cease resitance" the thing says as I hear Monkey and tubs screaming, and Emi laughing madly as another gunshot rings out"No, however I would ask you not to start" I say as I start to try and drain the energy inside of him out"Invasive power detected, overcharging power" It says calmly as the light tingle in my palms becomes a burning shock, but I stay holding on as the things smug smile turns fearful "Retreating"It kicks my stomach and I let go, sparking with its stolen energy as it scrambles back, and I can see emi harrasing the two idiots as Moriarty keeps them pinned behind a car, calmly taking pot shots at them as Chemi holds back revenant.Revenant sees me, and grins, falling back on her feet.The thing growls at me, digging its hands into the power lines under the street."Oh, this is gonna be fun" Emily cackles as Revenant and the beast charge me, and Moriarty turns to face themWhat do I do?

I stand next to him, pulling my laser rifle from my chest and taking aim as He lines up his sights on Revenant's head. My visor turns on, my mask fully sliding over my face as the readouts of all that's happening around me turn on, my vision filling with warnings of rapidly approaching projectiles and objects.But I push them away, forcing the mask to run its targeting routines, and end up getting a lock on the monster right as it leaps at me like some kind of overgrown cat.I smell burning rubber as I shoot a hole into its chest, as Moriarty continues unloading into Revenant to no effect.The monsters slams into me and forces me to the ground, with a very loud and painful thudWhat do I do Keep shooting 1d100 Attempt to absorb it 1d20+cont DRAIN 1d20+cont Unleash a bunch of clones 1d20+cont just phase push it off 1d20+str Call for help 1d20+endurance  FEEDBACK, give it back its energy write in

I feel its claws dig into my shoulders and grit my teeth, as the pain begins to run through my veins like a wild batch of electricity. I start to try and push him off of myself and yell as the thing laughs a gurgling laugh that echos through my skull.I begin to split, once, twice, three, four...five times, a horde of spar bodies rising out of me and pushing the creature off of me as Moriarty curses, reloading as Revenant gets right up in his face.the monster gets thrown back by the sheer volume of mes.What do I do?

I turn around, my extra bodies turning on the same moment, all cracking their knuckles as I quickly lock onto Revenant's legs and pull back the trigger as Moriarty tries to change out his magazine. With a yell from a dozen mouths, I rush Revenant, making her turn right before she whacks the old man with a twisted piece of pipe. Her eyes go wide as she sees all of me. She grins under her bandages and turns around to face them, Whacking one on the side of the head, cracking it and breaking the clone into white mass with one solid blow. I feel the pain as a great, mind numbing headache.But I wrap my arms around her with another body, hanging on tightly as he starts whacking and beating that body, not able to get a strong enough hit to destroy it before two more grab her arms, and another dog pile on top of her.Moriarty manages to load his clip before emily can get close enough to do what ever sick plan she has for the poor dog girl. And as if by some design of fate, my rifle finishes priming right as Moriarty fires his pistol. However I can't fire before I hear the monster behind me, getting up from where he fell in and instance.I pivot back around right as the rifle's barrel glows red, the monster's running at me, and gets a face full of laser for its trouble, its face melting slightly before it begins to put itself back togetherIt stumbles back as molten rubber covers its eyes, making it scream angrilyChemi screams furiously"HELP US DAMMIT!"

I pull the trigger few more times, short arcs of lightning flying into the monsters chest before I turn back around to face Chemi who's starting to run up the bank's stairs, acid pouring down her face as her mask melts away from the sheer potency of it.I whistle sharply as she begins to near Revenant and Moriarty, and the entirely passive emily, who seems content to just watch right now. Chemi turns, a glob of acid floating just above the palm of her hand .Before she can react in any other way, I pull the trigger back again and blast her in the chest with a lance of lighting that slams through her chest and carries on behind her, zapping tubs behind her, making him squeal before Emi kicks him in the face.But she tosses the ball of acid right before she gets sent back flying, and it comes in to fast for me to dodge....I'll have to absorb itroll 1d20+cont

Chemi is back up already and is now coming towards me as I begin to sweat bullets...of acid. I have her powers for now, probably for a short time though? Moriarty screams a stream of curses, as he retreats from revenant, who starts to sit up, grey blood filled with nanomachines repairing what's left of her face, building it back together as Emily laughs "Wicked""OKAY, YOU'RE ON MY SHIT LIST NOW" Revenant screamsright as I hear that monster growling behind me....I'm surroundedWhat do I do? send my clones to swarm either chemi or the monster 1d100 CLONE ARMY 1d20+cont Shoot chemi again 1d100 Shoot Revenant's legs out again 1d100 Call for emi's help and fight with her 2d100 FLEE to a better location 1d20+agility write in

"You are surrounded subject 767" the monster hisses as Chemi giggles, rage burning under her chemical green eyes as she begins to walk up to me with confidence in her step like a cat hunting a mouse "come quietly and calmly""What you talking about fish guy?" Chemi asks as I chuckle and start to suck up in the energy I've been storing for just a time like this."Oh I am? maybe you should recheck that parameter" I say calmly as I glance back at him "I think you'll find that"I laugh as I dozen or two me's walk out of my main body and split up themselves, breaking apart into more spare bodies as The monster growls and hisses.

There's a long moment of silence, as both of them and all of me just stand there. Nothing happens as the other fighters stop in their tracks, besides Emi who elbows Monkey in the back of his head, sending him the road with a crack and a thud. "What? we're fighting aren't we? no reason to stop in a brawl?" Emi laughs as I guess tubs gives her a dirty look or something like that"Holy shit....that's a lot of things to hit" Revenant chuckles darkly "Oh I knew today was going to be good"Emily whistles and laughs as I crack all of my knuckles, besides my orignal ones"Wow, you're a one girl orgy aren't you?" She giggles making Moriarty gasp"Em!" He shouts as I frown in confusion"What does that mean?" I ask as the tension in the air becomes palpable.And then the monster screams and attacks one of my clones, and just like that all hell breaks loose as I scream loudly, roaring as Revenant makes his move against moriarty or me...I can't tell.The sheer number of bodies makes it easy to dogpile and cover both Chemi and the monster. But they get in enough good hits to "kill" my clones and turn them back to an inert white mass.

I bite my lip, lights and balls of color filling my vision as the distinct pains of being melted and burned alive and ripped apart to shreds run through my head, repeated and amplified by every clone in my army that gets ripped apart. It just keeps getting worse and worse as it goes along, even though it's just been a second or two, it feels like I've been tortured for the last ten minutes. It hurts....it hurts so much I can barely handle it, I can barely bear it. it hurts...it really fucking hurts. I just can't stand it. My head is aching, my bones feel like they're melting. But I don't give up, I just keep holding out and fighting back against the little voice in my head telling me to scream, to cry and give and just curl up into a ball clutching my head to keep it from splitting open. It hurts...it hurts so fucking bad.But I hold out, turning the pain inwards as I do my best to make it fade away. Its a real shame my nerves are organic, otherwise I'd just turn them off. the pain begins to fade and the world clears, as does my head. and when I open my eyes. I can see two sights mostly.Chemi crying in a panic, trying to crawl out of the mass of my clones piling onto of her, a few melting on her and turning back to their "Base" state of simple mass, scarying the wits out of her as Revenant turns to her, taking his focus off of me and moriarty.And the monster slashing and clawing, trying to fight its way out of the mob as it gets slowed more and more as more me's hang on it, the spent mass sticking to its rubbery flesh. Both are going to get away.Unless I focus the other avaible clones on them, but that means letting the other get away.Well? Let chemi get away or let the monster get away
>>1157608> Let chemi get awaychemi is crazy but at least we know she'll just stick around her boy/girlfriend.The monster though, we don't really know anything about him and tracking him down will be much tougher.
>>1157608> Let chemi get awayWe know who and what Chemi is, what her weaknesses are and how to best exploit them (i.e. fuck with Revy). The monster in an almost complete unknown however, not to mention he called us by our chimera number. That one we absorb and dissemble.
well I got to take off for work, sorry I couldn't stay till the end.
>>1157608> Let chemi get awayPretty sure whatever wanted to capture us would have more useful.
>>1157682I mean disable us instead of either trying to kill us, or hurting us without much thought.
>>1157608> Let chemi get away
Chemi is predictable, and doesn't seem to hold a grudge about me turning her ...girlfriend/ boss into a dog girl, in fact she seems to love and abuse the fact. Also I don't feel right scaring her on accident like I am doing right now, even if she's technically "Killing" me several times over, those clones are just a bunch of distractions, like a lizard's tail. Except a whole lot less important...more like decoy's or solid holograms actually. But this creature is an unknown, knows my chimera designation and has been trying to capture me rather to wound me, While Chemi only acted in her own interests, which are to protect her little puppy and little to nothing more. This creature however is....its different, it doesn't have a reason I can guess for sure. But I have a feeling I know why its doing this. It must be sent from blackwatch, and come to think of it it does look similar to the creature that tried was wrecking havoc not too long ago. Except much smaller and humanoid. I narrow all of my eyes, and turn half my bodies around from chemi, and march them up to the struggling creature, as it begins to let out a stream of code, trying to pull one of the mes hanging on its waist, her ears wiggling in annoyance. As my main body does the same.The creature screams as it gets forced to the ground, and swarmed, covered completely by the mes.What do I do? try to absorb and assimilate it 1d20+cont rip it apart 1d100 Hack/ take its knowledge 1d20+cont Reprogram it 1d20+cont Modify its body 1d20+cont write in

It screams, its voice changing from its usual tone to a mechanical wail, as it loses its ability to speak in an actual, proper way. It shrieks, repeating the same phrase over and over "Retreat, escape, retreat, escape" as the clone bodies over the top of it begin to melt away into one formless blob as I put the hand of my main and real body on their backs, focusing on them as the monster's claws get stuck in the mass of....mass. I wouldn't call it flesh, its more like the stuff that my body turns into when I absorb something."HELP" It cries out, sounding like me for a moment its voice is a mixture of the wail and its usual voice as the rubber skin on it gets peeled off and melts away as it gets forced into a progressively smaller space as I take the clones covering it back into myself "DON'T LEAVE ME CREATORS, I WISH TO SERVE, I DO NOT WANT TO BE DESTROYED, SAVE ME SO I CAN SERVE, I DO NOT WANT TO BE RECYCYLED, I WISH TO SERVE, I WISH TO"I see its burning red eye vanishes under the rapidly shrinking ball of white mass, that begins to fold itself into my arm, vanishing and disapearing quickly as I hear the beast get disembled and broken apart. Gun shots fire off and the ground shakes as it breaks apart behind me. Emily yelling and Emi yelping in a panic as the street turns liquid for a second as the ragtags retreat, Revenant grabbing chemi as tubs and monkey fire back at Moriarty and emily.I glance back, and then get a surge of information that blinds me in an instant. I see reports, logs and simple scrolls of information and data. Every process, every sub routine and scrip that made that monster move becomes a part of me, destroying its almost AI level intellegence in a moment. I frown, as I see my file, my chimera file. Stating everything about my creations, the ultras used to make me. My "second" mother and fairy army. As well as one...anomaly? it doesn't go deeper there, but it seems to just be a note. and then it stares my purposeAssassination, Sabotage and fodder. I grit my teeth and gasp happily, forgetting the anger that was filling me just a second ago. as I see the last place it was transmiting to....in this city or close to it.a black guard base! a black guard base so close...so very close. I smirk, as thoughts I've never had before fill my head...thoughts of revenge? retrubetion? I don't know. But a part of me thinks I should seek out this place and"...a...a..a.ctivating" the voice of the create whispers in my head as I pick apart the last of its code, like a hungry beast "defensive....measures"I wince, feeling my head aching as I fall on my bum and whine. the pain vanishes as Emi shakes my shoulder."those two r....well they just sort of flew away...and they took the cash they were stealing before those jokers showed up" she says looking worried as I nod, having deleted the "Defensive Measure" in just a moment "I don't really want to chase them down"cont
>>1157867"Neither do I" I grumble as I Stand back up, rubbing my forehead "I kind of just want to go home""You look like you need a drink" Emi chuckles "But I'm pretty sure everyone we knew would beat my ass if I gave you one"I nod"So....the garage or your home?" Emi asks sweetly as she stands next to me, just in case I suddenly stumble and fall"Does it matter?" I ask smirking "but home home, I need to let mom and my siblings know I'm alright"She nods, and touches my hand, and like that....we teleportand we'll end hereI've have a massive headacheand need to think if I'll still be running this next week.I might keep running itmight cut back on questing a bitMight bring back a quest I put on hiatus/dropped earlydon't know, need to think.But I am in no shape to do that now, or answer questionsMight be coming down with a flu or something. I'm going to bed.See ya wedsnday, hopefully I'll have an answer then, but who knowsHM outskies
>>1157880Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. I hope you keep running this, I'm having a really good time. But I would also love it if you brought Da'ta back. Do what ever you think is best though, I know we'll all have a good time no matter what.
>>1157896As I said I do need to think. Since I have regretted my snap decisions before. SO I'll just reflect on it before I make my choice here. As I said, no idea what I'm gonna do yet
>>1157880Okay, just be sure to give enough though to it before deciding. I just hope I can make it to ydfq, since I need to do something at some unspecified time.
>>1157880See ya HM thanks for running
>>1157962Also, I appreciate the time you're willing to invest in your quests, even though I'm not participate in the others.
>>1157962I will, don't worry
>>1157880Ah it would be a shame if you chose to drop this quest HM, I rather like itBut that's your choice I would have participated But Sundays just don't work for me during your running hours
>>1158108Hmm, well I might hold a poll then
to be fair i think alot of your readers are lurkers like me and just come for the story
>>1158503That could be it, like I said, nothing is set in stone.I'll decided what i'll do. But its a very big maybe that I'll drop this quest, since I like it so much.Could be I'm just sick and that's making me a bit antsy or some shit
>>1158503There are also those like me, who are in the wrong timezone and have to sleep at some point.Also, Eve needs to use her clone in a different way. Like sending some out before a fight starts to create a device that will help.
>>1158999I work night shift so nights other then friday and saturday I have to take off half way through the thread and for some reason despite only leaving 5 minutes away from my place of work 4chan has placed a ban around that area so unless I have a pass I can't even post during my brakes.also>>1158682if your still around, did we kill the creature we absorbed or is it still alive inside of us?
>>1159131alive? it was mostly programsbut yoou'll see>>1158999That is a good plan
>>1159443Still, it had a sense of self preservation in the end.
>>1159450Yep. It was pretty alike Eve except less organic actually.But as I said, you'll see if its still around
>>1159603Please don't end the quest! It started while I was at work and I started it but then forgot until now!
>>1159957Yeah, I don't think I am going to drop it.It was just a bad feeling I had yesterdayso worry not
