In a dimly lit warehouse, you finally complete your first ritual! The components you painstakingly gathered and paid for disappear with a flash of Arcane energy, before the energy is sucked into the inner ring of the circle."I-I did it!" You exclaim, exhilaration is your only sensation as the item you summoned finally shows itself.//Okay, so here's how the game works. You play as a fresh Mage. As far as you know, you are the only practitioner of magic in your world. And the only ability you have is a ritual to summon 1 Non-Magical item of less than 11 pounds from a fictional realm. Yes, fictional realm, like a kunai from Naruto, a chest from treasure island, a plasma caster from Predator, Etc. Now, two important choices ahead.What is your setting? This determines the scope of your powers, how much fiction you have access to, and the difficulty.>Fantasy- You might be the first mage, but plenty of magical entities exist. Monsters, Dragons, etc.Low Fiction, High Magic growth, VERY low tech. High difficulty,>Modern- You live in an urban environment, a town 100,000 strong. Thankfully, your powers don't cause electronics to fail or anything.Very High Fiction, Low Magic Growth, Medium Tech. Normal Difficulty.>Sci fi- You learned Magic in transit from the northern Quadrant of the Galaxy to the Southern Quadrant, while working as a Senior Technician. Thankfully, you didn't have to fight off any of Humanity's numerous enemies...High Fiction, Very Low Magic Growth, Very High Tech. High Difficulty.>Write in.What did you summon? Your spell lets you summon 1 non-magical item weighing up to 11 pounds from a fictional realm.>Write in.First option with 4 votes wins. Otherwise I will call it when I get tired of waiting.P.S. I suggest offering a more specific setting in the category you choose.P.P.S. Dice Rolls, when used, are Best of 3 d 100 + bonuses Vs a DC.
>>1555382>late mideaval period>excalibur
>>1555382How often can we summon?
>>1555423Each item will require a list of components to summon. Once you get those, you may summon your item. You will work out what components you need within 24 hours of wanting the item.
>>1555409>>excaliburIt's magical anon. Can't summon magical stuff. Now a Green Lantern Ring isn't magical, or Annihilus' Cosmic Control Rod. Just harness pure energy to do ridiculous shit.
>>1555409Excalibur is a Magical object. Unsummonable. But Late medival is doable, I would put it at.Medium Magic Growth, Low Fiction, Very Low Tech, Low Difficulty.
Also, as we go through the quest, your powers will develop and allow you to summon more things.Eventually, people and locations will fall under your abilities.
>>1555448>low difficultyGayyyyy.How about joyeuse, the sword of charlemenge?
>>1555507Yes, but it would be, effectively, a normal sword.
Currently, our only Valid Vote is to set the setting to The Late Medival Period.
So, how do roll dice?
>>1555546dice+1d100 in options field
Rolled 2 (1d100)
Well, it works, good to know. Thanks.
1D3 => 2I used Rolz due to not knowing how to roll here. But Setting is Urban. I'll choose a more specific setting once we get an item. Then the quest can start.
Here's some options.>A vial of DX-1118 C A.K.A. The Mercer Virus>A lightsaber>An Omni tool.>Iron Man's Zero Point Arc Reactor.>The keys to the Bat Mobile>A Scouter from Dragon Ball ZCome on guys! Lets get creative and have fun here!
Hmm this quest looks interesting>>1555666Would creatures count? Like say a Pikachu or something, or would we need to learn how to summon "Familiars" before we could do that
>>1555679No living things yet. Once the quest gets rolling, then you can upgrade your abilities. You could snag a pokeball though.
>>1555666>>A vial of DX-1118 C A.K.A. The Blacklight Virus
>>1555666Do DMC Devil arms count as nonmagical? I assume notHow about EVE Online Skill injectors so we can git gudder at this whole magic thing fast (if thats how they'd work in here)If none of those would work I'd go with the omni tool
>>1555708DMC devil arms are creatures though. ARENT THEY. Whoops accidental caps.
Will the time we start with affect what things we can summomFor example if we do mideval wouldnt we be limited to things within our understanding?
>>1555748Yeah. If you don't know Anime exists. No anime stuff etc.
We've got one vote for DX-1118 and maybe one for Omnitool, from Mass effect.
>>1555817I'll vote for Omnitool, i don't know what the DX-1118 virus is, but Late Middle Ages has THE plague, thats more than enough virus for me
>the mercer virus. DO IT CONTAINED FOR FUCKS SAKE. DONT START A BLACKLIGHT PROJECT DONT DO IT.
>>1555844the virus makes us a super human who can morph our body into different shapes and have superhuman qualitys. also absorb biomass. type in prototype two and you get the idea
Rolled 82 (1d100)So, two for DX1118, the Mercer Virus.And two for Omni-tool?okay.1-50 Omni-Tool51-100 Mercer VirusRemember, the year is 2017.
You adjust the ritual one last time and the portal opens before you, lines of arcane energy drawing themselves into a stable, 2 dimensional hole in reality. Already, the strain can be felt behind your temples. [No roll this time] But, this is your first successful summoning, and you won't let anything stop you from gaining your just reward. You reach through the portal, and into a different world, a timeless world, where Alex Mercer is just about to crush the vial he escaped with, and unleash a virulent plague of unstoppable destruction on New York, and the World. You let lose your held, bated breath, and grab the vial. Your ritual will only allow a copy of your target and your own body through the portal, no air, contagions, or energies can pass through the portal either, for that was the nature of your idea. Normally, this would be an impossible feat, even if magic was widespread and used by all, but using reference material, like books, games, and shows, you developed a means to isolate and target singular items. Thus, you have Bypassed the truly prodigious energy requirements to summon objects from another dimension. Go You!The spell finishes replicating the item in your hand, so you take your hand out of the portal and release the immense strain of the ordeal. It's too bad you don't have an easier way of stopping time than that though. If you need to obtain such rare components every time, perhaps you should do the ritual without it... Something to think on later, you suppose.You are in a Warehouse which you have rented for the month, it is June 9th, 2017. On you is 100 dollars, all you have left. A motorcycle key, the Mercer Virus and a house key.What would you like to do?
>>1555962swallow the mercer virus so there is no risk if need put the vial in our mouth close lips and bite down what size is the vial?
>>1555971dont let any think out if the vial is to durable or big lock it to the lips and drink
>>1555974dont let anyout we dont want a infection mabye a spell sphere that does not let pass through contagions around our head
>>1555971Slightly larger than an adult males middle finger.
Okay, judging by the discussion so far, I need a roll for using the vial with no contamination. DC 60, +4 to the rolls.
>>1555962can we do a magic sphere that does not let any contagions pass through around our head so we can drink or crush the vial in our closed mouth without any risk of it to spread or a circel that does not let any contagions in or out around our body so if our body starts to suddenly spray out a little virus there is not risk of it spreading?
>>1555995do a circel or sphere around our body so that we can crush it witout the virus spreading this is something we must plan
>>1555997It's not currently in your abilities, but here's a poll.>Develop an anti contamination field ritual to administer the vial in.Takes time but guarantee success.>Just try it. DC 60 +4 to roll. Bo3
>>1556002>Develop an anti contamination field ritual to administer the vial in.A good wizard takes precautions.
>>1556002lets do this!so its (/dice 3d60 + 4) ?

>>1556023Kinda the point, we're having fun until you leave your world for another, because that's the inevitable progression of your abilities.
I want to do a little bit of character creation, but it would break the flow. Is there anyway to do it without that? Or are you guys ok with it?
>>1556023it was my idea to do a ritual/magic/circel/sphere to contain the possible virus infections your idea was to contain it but you did not say how
>>1556036probably do it like with character interaction, person 1: hey who the fuck are you in our turf. what you saying brap brap [slag ganger idiots]
>>1556043oh no my idea or a better term is the thing I wanted to happen was the virus rather than the Omnitool. sorry for any confusion
>>1556048Sounds good to me. Writing.Also, discuss future items you might like, or where you want the character to be in a month or some such. A plan would be nice and help updates flow.
>>1556036you decide QM i am ok with both go with the flow and decide with our interations or character creation we could after the taking the virus forgeting our gender,voice apeareance and we are a homeless nobody
>>1556055so that we build up the MC from the ground up just have the magic power and knowlage from the MC before the virus like a book or movie or strith up in the brain
>>1556055with the mercer virus, we could be anyone. we just need to get close and consume them.but items I would want? well it has to be tangable, currently non-magical, and weigh less than a heavy book.I got a plan. we know about how our magic works yes? if so go on the internet and then type in some bullshit we want eg flightwe find a story how some bloke gets flight from a mighty pebble. we then magic the pebble to us, we win. rinse repate
>>1556053ok no problem and sorry if it feel like i was acusing you and a onmitool is not that usefull compared to the power to shapeshift into any biolocical being and more a pocet dimension for mass and being bigger on the inside like the tardis from doctor who limited mommetom maipulation weakening the effect of gravity i like how you think
>>1556064adding on to that, maybe find out what we need to make better spells?
>>1556064could work but we need ultra rare or limited ingredienses like the horn of the extinct rare unicorns or something that only exist in a limited amount
>>1556069we seam to be mage only limited by our imagination and belifes and magic energy if we are the only macical creature or being that canuse this energy we have infinate energy source but we are only limite how fast we can take it in or store it woitout it straning our body "soul/magic core" and biolocial body
>>1556064>gets flight from a mighty pebbleThat sounds like a Magical Item, something we can't summon yet, or at the very least we'd have to scour for incredibly rare materials
>Rolled 83+4=87Great success!You tuck the vial in your pocket and start writing on a small study in the warehouse. You moved all of your things into this warehouse to facilitate your research. It took you nine days to finish this ritual, your current idea won't take nine HOURS if you have anything to say about it...-----It is done. After 7 hours of work, 2 bottles of 7-UP and a bag of Doritos, you have created a ritual that can shred any entity recognized as a pathogen, by the intelligence matrix connected to your subconscious, from passing the barrier.Standing on the complex diagram, you finger the vial in your hands and sigh. There is a chance to lose your memories in this procedure, you would have taken the strain from Jason Heller, but circumstances made that impossible. How... Do you prepare anything? Did you keep a journal or would you like to write a letter to your future self?>Write a letter- We enter a short bout of character creation.>You kept a Journal- QM Decides everything about character>No... Your life, not remembering it might be for the best.
>>1556094so we can only sommon this that are not "magical" but can violate the laws of thermo something about energy can not be created or destroyed can only be converted?
>>1556094bad example but the point got through>>1556091that needs fixing>>1556074shit>>1556097lets write a letter and have a journal of our research and thoughts on this shit
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>15560971>You kept a Journal- QM Decides everything about characteror2>Write a letter- We enter a short bout of character creationor3>No... Your life, not remembering it might be for the best.i use the dice to decide i can maybye change it later
>>1556100I'm defining Magic as an energy that crosses dimensions, allowing for reality 'breaking' by substituting the reality of objects effected by said energy with the desired set of rules enforced by the control.Magic items will fight to stay in their universe, and living items are too complex to copy accurately ATM.
>>1556101i like the idea with having "a journal of our research and thoughts on this shit" that i support
>>1556111but the virus is a living thing its self replicating and can take-in/re-fuel energy/food so it should count for a "living being" how about robots the "living being" what defines a "living being" is something like a "soul"? or is it becuse evety virus is not bigger then one cell?
>>1556128Its probably more about size and the targets cognition, a virus doesn't realize its being copied, its too simple an organism too so it didn't fight back
>>1556128A virus is not a living thing. It is the biological equivalent to a malfunctioning robot, cobbled together from scraps, that functions only just enough to do things. It is a vessel with instructions in it, it's why you could only get the virus in the vial, instead of from a drop of blood from one of Heller's many fights, at that point, the virus has infected a living organism and they become one, uplifting the virus to life status.
>>1556142The reason living beings can't be copied is their complexity, if you took a human and measured the chemical reactions occuring in a second, or tried to map the brain... Your magic can't 'scan' and 'replicate' a living being safely. You can try, but are likely to get a very disfunctionall copy, if that. You have to get 'smarter' magic that scan's and copies more accurately.
gentlemen, i propose that once we have become a biological horror, we further augment that by getting ourselves some NANOMACHINES
>>1556153I can't guarantee your cells won't simply destroy them, like a toxin or such. If you gain enough control and understanding of your functions, it's possible though.
>>1556153ther could be a problem that they are not compatible
>>1556153we can not control them, thus they are useless at best. they are GREY GOO at worst

Your 'Father' always tolerated you with a smile, but at the age of 19, you stormed out of that house when he DARED compare you to the trash who gave birth to you, determined to make something of yourself...----You finish the 3 page letter and set it just outside the circle you are in. With a deep breath, to calm yourself from the bubbling emotions and thoughts, 'is this death? Why am I doing this? Will I be me or will it take over?' You shake your head, this is no different than sleeping... Yes, that's it.Pulling out the vial from your coat pocket and opening it, a single tear falls from your eye as you say, "Goodnight," and empty the contents into your stomach.You kneel on the floor for a second, a numb tingle, cool, but burning, trails after the substance. Y-you. *Hurk!* Blood and vomit hit the floor and you see tendrils of flesh reach out of the puddle as you black out...

You edge yourself over the line of conscious thought and realize something. It worked! You go to jump in happiness, and narrowly avoid throwing yourself into the still active barrier. You feel so, so light. And your speed, of thoughts, of sensations.Everything is overwhelming, but you aren't experiencing any negative feedback from the over stimulation as your thoughts are transmitted throughout your body, constantly stored in a crystal format in each cell, new connections are constantly occurring and breaking. A shifting pathway of YOU... But you need to leave this circle, and with a simple command, the barrier drops.At your feet is a letter, one you remember writing, but looking over it, you notice something is different. The emotions you express in writing don't match what you feel when looking back on certain memories. You're morals have been changed, perhaps its just the body wide brainpower talking, but your grasp of right and wrong were a bit too strict, weren't they? After all, what's wrong with killing a few people if they're in your way. And with your abilities, its less killing, and more... making them go to sleep isn't it?That is, if absorbing someone copies everything perfectly... hmm.>Important. Due to the introduction of the Mercer Virus, you have shifted alignments to Chaotic Neutral with evil leanings. You have also gained an IMMENSE boost to life, damage, speed, intelligence, utility, and almost every aspect of your life. Unfortunately, you have lost your humanity, oh well.Judging by the phone in your 'pocket', it is 2 p.m. June 11th. You have a missed call from your employer and 14 missed texts from your little sister and twin brother.>What do?

>>1556943Also I would maybe change the size of your blade, unless your a 12ft hulking giant 11 feet of blade is, well just look.http://socialcompare.com/en/tools/compare-sizes/man-vs-blade-3vrnvekf
>>1557074That's very true, 11 feet is as long as you can make it, but it juts backwards as well as forwards, and in general, you could say it is 7 feet long forwards and 4 feet backwards. it is the forearm converted into a blade that can still be swung. Not an actually detached blade, Your character is 7' 6" as is his twin. based off the character Gamagori who possesses the 'biggest man in a room' trope.
Officialy changing blade size to a max of 9 feet while in your base form.

You pull out your phone and quickly flip through your contacts before arriving on your sibling group chat.>[Hey guys, just letting you know I'm alright.;)]You wait for a reply from them, but then you hear a loud banging at the front of the warehouse. *Bang, BANG, BAANNGG!!*"XANDER!!

im back, I think I have a better idea for a lie. there have been a few strange things happning around the world sis, so I took to seeing if there is any connection to anything. and I found..SOMETHING I'm just not sure what so, I set it up and tried it. well I would have but a certain loud mouth interrupted me
You take the next 30 minutes to narrate your recent 'LARPing' session with her, how you and some buds from work did this over the week and you all hashed it out earlier today. You think you convinced her, but now she's just loitering around your place. Eating a bag of Doritos and playing Prototype 3, the long awaited finale to the series. It revolves around the reveal that Alex wasn't dead, he used Heller as a carrier to infect his daughter, gestating inside her until she went off to college in Dallas, Texas.

I'm going to go play a game of league, I'll be back in 40.Shitpost, image dump, discuss, review, maybe vote if you have the time for it? Smell ya later.

>>1557851Yeah, bag of holding, or depending on how QM does things, Handy Haversack.Maybe a Duran's Instant Fortress or a Cube of Force?
>>1557909How about a hammerspace inventory from borderlands?
>>1557935I said the Haversack due to the lack of needing to look for whatever the item is.
Your character looks like this a bit.
>>1557944I think its just the Echo device that claptrap gives you, could be cool to have a HUD with all the other functions it gives you
[oh shit I just thought]can Xavier acces 4chan, like quest? hive queen khornate quest, gunslinger we have one of the biggest point selections in the world
umm guys I just thought...what about the void drum? from kotor two a barrel sized genortater that tears wounds I the force? and decimates planets, we need a fail safe. and we got on right here
>>1558004Their is an 11 pound weight limit.
>>1558163Let's get Rick's portal gun then we'll have no limits on what we can do
>>1558171Nope, you'll have no idea how to use it, and Rick's can trace them. Do you want to fight Rick's?
>>1557993Yes, he could also pull a Bolter or lasgun from 40k
I don't think I'll post another story post for a while. If anonyone has a question, feel free to ask. Leaving this open while i do other things.
>>1558204okay no bolter, that shit would break our arms....but we are now a prototype. lets do it
>>1558442what would happen if we tried to bring recalently dead zerg and tried to absorb it?i could like to try to summon a sonic screwdriver or the remains of a xenomorphcan we summon dead bodys?
>>1558457we can heal from anything if a drop of us survived we can heal
>>1558840I know, that's why I said do it
>>1558839> Eating ZergWell, you would obviously gain access to biological structures that surpass your current offensive and defensive capabilities. You could possibly gain access to psychic abilities. And you might be able to recreate the hive mind.>Wanting to summon the tool of a time traveler?Considering your only reason you can take things is that you stop time first, maybe? I'm not overly familiar with the doctors who.>Absorbing a Xenomorph...Well. You see, they have this super potent acid in their bodies, you know? You'll have to spend a long time treating it before you can absorb it. But it would give you new stuff every time you eat one. Due to the genetic diversity each hive has, some constants are their acidic blood, hivemind, immunity/resistance to the acid blood, and an upgrade to your whipfist. If you ever make one, that is.There's the answers. Remember though, 11 lb limit, no living, no magic, nothing you don't know exists. These are your general limits, which can be changed with research.
>>1558958can we even stop time in the tardis? we could just be opening a portal so we could ask for a spare sonic screwdriver or a trade can we travel to another unverse and back and if we travel to another universe is there a time diffrens? or does time just stop in other universe we visit or if we visited a universe twice do we travel to a new dimension before we interacted with it?
>>1559676You could just travel to another world eventually, for now though you can not.When you first tried this ritual, two years ago, you tried a fairly simple nab and grab of a bag of gold coins. Everything was going great, fairly simple array, a few components, but the instant you activated your ritual, ALL of your mana was sucked out, it damaged the part of you that makes mana, AND knocked you unconscious. The damn portal didn't even open. For the next two years, you repaired your source and poured over the ritual, adding restrictions and limitations to it. Finally, you devised a system that should work, you just tested it, and here we are!>Moving forwards, you will continue to refine your spell. >By getting more mana supply, editing the ritual, finding better components, and deepening your understanding of magic.On a related note, I've been doing some thinking about how magic in other worlds can be united into one system, and I've made some progress i think.>You have access to True Magic, the Mana that binds realities and allows all things, possible and impossiple, looking at you Cthulhu, to exist.>Most places have either A: Concievable Magic, which only bends rules of individual realities.. Or B: Innconcievable magic, which breaks and creates rules of individual realities.>You get to do both.>Most magic users in the dimensions you see have a tainted and used magic, because like energy, magic is neither created or destroyed, and each person to use magic imposes their ideas and thoughts on it. ; If YOU ONLY use your magic for summoning, the people of your universe will only be able to use summoning magic. things like that. OH well, that's a tangent. Hehe
>>1559962is this a vote? and if this Most magic users in the dimensions you see have a tainted and used magic, because like energy, magic is neither created or destroyed, and each person to use magic imposes their ideas and thoughts on it. ; If YOU ONLY use your magic for summoning, the people of your universe will only be able to use summoning magic. things like that. is true we must control all the magic or never let anyother magiccuser to exist
>>1560009Magic spreads like a disease, by using magic, you leave behind used magic that has your imprint on it. It will accumulate in nature, tainting objects, animals, and people. Acting with a very simple mindset, it slightly alters them.In short, by introducing magic to a magicless world, it will eventually become magical. You can't prevent this. Now that you discovered magic, tapped into it, your world will draw more and more magic to it. Already, your efforts have started a domino effect...It's why i rolled earlier.
I'm running in like, 2 1/2 hours.
>>1559962>because like energy, magic is neither created or destroyed,>>1560128>Now that you discovered magic, tapped into it, your world will draw more and more magic to it.So if there's a Conservation of Magic going on, and supposedly the multiverse draws from the same pool, just how much magic is there in the multiverse?
>>1560296effectively infinite. All dimensions are supported by magic, when a dimension reaches its end, be it heat death, implosion, cascading failures and what have you, it is recycled.I think that mana should be the substance which all things are formed of. In a universe like ours, mana is what you would get if you broke anything down to its final, base structure.Electrons, protons, neutrons, photons, energy, gravity, etc. are all expressions of mana, structured how that universe wants its existence to be. So existences are recycled, this leads to a constant influx of pure mana. Another way to explain its nigh inexhaustability is that the further down the chain of mana you go. From trueto concievable and inconcievableto the various branches from thereand the various branches from thereand from thereEach level acts like stages of matter.SolidLiquid GasMore volume, but heavily specialized.You use true magic, so you have access to anything you want, but your 'mana pool' is very small.Thinking through this is fun. I should do it some more.
>spend some time with sis>make some food for you two>>Subtly experiment with your powers. How? Make shapes with your tentacles, hope sister doesn't notice while you play games with her.Night falls as you loaf on the couch with your little sis. You spend hours hanging out, talking about her school work. She has a culture festival next week that she'd love for you to attend. Finally, your fun is interrupted by a very familiar, and loud, acquaintance.*~Growluhow~*"Hehe- Sorry about that." Your sister says, "I haven't eaten since lunch, so I'm starving." She smiles and pauses the game. "So what's for dinner?"Hmm, in anticipation of your future, you kinda haven't done the shopping lately.Rolled 52Rolled 74Thankfully, you scrape together a delicious chili bake. Two cans of beanless chili, a layer of cheddar biscuits, and some extra cheese meted on top.Sitting at the table, you let your sister lead in saying grace, muttering a quiet, half-hearted 'Amen', before digging in to the food."Mm~" Your sister moans at the taste of your food. "I'll never get tired of your cooking bro. Gil's cooking sucks, and Mom's been working doubles lately."Gil is the nickname of your 'father', Gilgamesh Senior. Creative man that he is, he named your twin brother after himself. After your fallout with him, the family's been having trouble working through it. The past you agonized over it, but now, it's rather numb, actually. He looked down on you from the very beginning. Even though you were never as smart as your younger sister, or athletic as your twin, you always gave your all in life. It was his constant disappointment that led to your final fight. "Bro? Come on, are you brooding again?" You look up from your untouched food and see that your sister is already done with a second helping. "Sigh, Yeah. Just remembering why you call him Gil instead of 'Dad'. I just wish we could have resolved it some other way." You say, though the words are far from your feelings on the matter. If anything, you think you might want to bury that man. If your mom knew what you do, she might just do it for you too."Don't worry about it so much bro. It's been over a year now, and it seems like we're on the road of recovery... You know, Gil wants to talk to you, if you think you're ready for it." She looks to you with a small smile before yawning. "Hey, I'ma hit the hay, alright? See you in the morning." She rinses her dishes in the sink and starts setting up the pull out bed.You eat the food on your plate... Tasteless, due to a lack of taste buds you assume. Instead of working out how to taste again, you focus on your hand, thin strips of red and black flesh unravel from it and snake into the leftovers at your command. Each ribbon branches into more, grabbing the food and moving it into your body proper... It feels very strange to have lumps of matter in you, but slowly, the cells around the food gnaw at it, forcibly converting the processed biological matter- (1/2)
Into actually useful biomass. At this rate, the 4+ pounds of food is only going to yield a pound or so of actual fresh cells. Most of it is... converted into something you can't accurately guage. Your body is automatically doing something with it, but you aren't sure what that is...>Gained a little mass. Learned how to absorb. Learned that food takes a while to digest, even after turning into an abomination. Strangely enough, you can't tell what most of the stuff you've eaten is turning into, or what's being done with it.At the moment, your control is very low, over your own body, restricted to macro tissue level, just below full blown organs. You can't change what occurs inside your cells, nor can you manipulate them freely. For now, you have to rely on templates, such as 'blade', or 'musclemass', or a person you have absorbed.>Templates you have.Blade- You can change your forearm (right) Into a blade ranging from 2-8 feet long.Base form- You can look like Xander Stevenson.Absorbtion tentacles- Parts of your body can unwind into vulnerable tendrils which penetrate sources of biological matter and forcibly absorb them into your body.Well, you're sister is asleep and you have a lot of new information to work with. Some other information is as follows.You live in Stadenfort, a made up city on the east coast of North America. You live in a world like ours. Your city is 100,000 strong and surrounding areas are rather heavily populated. A large megacity lies to your south east, with over 2 million inhabitants. It's actually three cities so close that they now connect. You work as an engineer in the research and development department of a military contractor. But, 'you could have been a doctor,' and 'done something good' with the little amount of brains you have, instead of 'playing at second hand murder.'... You really hate Gilgamesh. He's a hypocritical son of a bitch who took a Hippocratic oath, figures.Anyways.

I know i'm an hour late and all, but damn. I was hoping for some more players.
>>1562089>>Prowl the streets, for crime- I mean, criminals...which could be related to>Go play with your powers, theirs an abandoned trainyard near your warehouse.Tis a bit later for most of america so thats probably why, give it some time.
>>1562206that's true. I'm having to switch to a night schedule for an upcoming employment stint. Once that starts, i won't get to run very often. So i'm trying to get a bunch going now.Does anyone have advice on how to build a consitent playerbase? Or anything when running a quest on 4Chan? I've run on Anonkun, but it was never a problem there. Hmm. I've heard some stuff about twitter, but i've never had one. And maybe discord stuff? But that seems rather... Maybe, I'll see what Anon has to say.
>>1562216Twitter is nice to have so people know when your running because not everyone checks the thread every day. It also gives you a general idea of how many people are following your quest.Getting a strong playerbase is just something that happens you cant really force it.I would also recommend getting a trip for your threads to make it easier to pick your posts out from the rank and file.
>>1562264I'm basically brand new to 4chan, i've only ever used SupTG for binging on quests, so there's a lot I just don't know. I'm not asking for an in depth explanation for anyone, just some time to figure stuff out and a few tips.Thanks for that.
>>1562285Aha, i see.Well I wouldn't fret too much about a low player count at the beginning, so may QM's here pop up and disappear within the span of a thread that most people wait till they are more settled into a quest and sure they wouldn't ditch them before they start getting dedicated.Hell one of the quests i follow is on like thread 70 some and at any point gets 2-10 votes per choice. So long as you don't disappear you'll find a group of players.
>Contact Boss.You grab your phone from the stand and make your way outside, enhanced eyesight guiding you through the messy warehouse as your sibling sleeps. With a wall between you and her now, and the few stars up above, you tap your boss's contact and start a call. "*Ring*...*Ring*...*Ring*" The phone rings, but you get sent to voicemail. You wanted to talk to him about your week off and make sure you had a job to come back to. Michael's never steered you wrong before, but..."Hey Mike, it's Xander. I was calling to make sure you still had a place for me on Monday. No need to rush or anything, I just saw your missed call... Anyways, I'll talk to you when you call back." You hang up and put the phone on silent. "That's that I suppose." You raise the hood to your large jacket and start running in the night. You decide to keep your ears open, hoping to find someone your old self wouldn't mind testing his abilities on...Roll to find crime. DC 68. +7 to the roll.
Rolled 45 + 7 (1d100 + 7)>>1562397

WOO, We got an awesome roll!>>1562439
>98You don't make it more than 30 feet before you hear it. A dragging, metallic series of clinks. Voices muttering angrily and a sharp *THWAK*, followed by a long, pained moan. The noises are coming from a nearby alley. One of the voices starts speaking loudly."C'mon little man, we knows where you work, where you live. We knows so much abouts you man. We just need one, eensie, teensy thing from you. Just get us the drugs, and we'll leave you be, hell, we're offering to PAY you for them. You don't want bad things happening, I don't want to do bad things. So, get us what our clients want, walk away with a early Christmas bonus, and everyone's happy in the end. What do ya say, pal?" His voice rings, chipper and light despite the future he outlines, or perhaps IN light of it. This is obviously a crime, at least two people are down that alley.So how do you want to do this.>Leave, this guy's got a good thing going for him, find someone in need of help.>Without showing off your superhuman powers.>Write in.
>>1562541>watch them, if its obvious the other guy wants no part in it, just absorb the guy offering to pay the other. If hes down to help them kill and absorb them bothDrugs are bad kids, and bad things happen to people who deal in them.

So, like, this?https://twitter.com/DimensionBoundGIs how I share my twitter, right?
>>1562796I agree with this guy, observe make a judgment and descend on [un]holy retribution
>>1562920me too supports

How does one acrchive a thread?
>>1564195i dont know
>>1564195go to suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com, on the left side there's an add thread button. It's pretty straightforward from there.
Wow, it seems that there might be good posts on this board after all.
Game start extended by 4 more hours. Sorry all.
>>1573329No prob, so long as OP not kill.
I am DBQM.
You quickly move to a better location, scaling the brick walls of the alleyway and perching above the 3 men in the alley.One is an immense man, Standing at least a head above the others and rippling with muscles. He wears bladed chains over a suit of metal bands and leathers. He stands behind a second, scared looking man in light blue scrubs. His features are plain, but he seems... dangerous. Beneath what you see at a first glance, his eyes are rapidly taking in the situation, and his quivering, shifting nature has brought him close to a piece of rubble, some concrete with a 3 foot length of thick metal sticking out.Finally, you see a smaller man with heavily scarred skin, whether from burns, usage, or other sources is unknown. He keeps rambling on in that nasally, heavily accented voice, prodding the prey for an answer.It's obvious this man is going to try and fight off these criminals, do you have any inclination to let him? Or are you going to save him before he has the chance to do so himself?>Kill the criminals in front of him, then eat them.>Knock the criminals unconscious, escort him away from the area and call the police.>See how this plays out, only save him if it seems obvious he will totally lose, and likely die.>Write in.Also, You pick up noise of another commotion in a nearby area. It sounds like a small war has broken out in the streets, distracting the people you are observing.
