YEA RWBY QUEST. We are going to get waifus and headpat Imoutos, and we have plenty of both.
>>
You duck behind a tree to try and catch your breath. You thought she was your friend, but Ruby was merciless. As if some horrible, alien intelligence had taken her body and she sat screaming behind her own eyes, helpless to stop her hands as they moved in for the kill. You poke your head around the trunk to catch sight of her, but a flash of red is all you see before a high caliber round digs into the bark and you’re forced to duck again.

It had only been a few days since your argument with Blake, and Ruby had changed so quickly from an excitable little girl into the monster that haunted you now. You weren’t sure what to expect when she invited you here, but this wasn’t it.

Another flash and she’s swept in front of you. The sniper rifle levels towards your head, and she pulls the trigger. You can barely make out the ground rushing up to meet your ruined eyes before it’s washed away in a sea of blood. The blood pools and shifts, eventually forming into words: “YOU DIED”

“Man, speed power ups are cheap.” That’s the third time in a row she’s killed you this match. “They are not!” Ruby protests, “Do you have any idea how hard it is to aim when you’re going that fast?”

“That’s not a problem when you stop dead to line up a shot!” This is why you insisted on no power ups, but “My Room My Rules” trumped any logical debates you put forward. Ruby gives you nothing but a smug grin and a laugh, but the expression settles into something more genuine.

“Thanks for coming over, Whitaker. Yang only likes fighting games, Jaune’s TERRIBLE, and Ellie’s never here.”

“Ellie? Liquorice?” It’s the only person she could be talking about, and she nods, “Yeah, Yang started calling her that, cause of her letter on the team, and it seems to have stuck.” Ruby stalls a bit after bringing up her team. She doesn’t seem as happy as she had been only a second ago. Did something happen in RYAL?

Volume 3 Spoilers

Holy fuck! I just got to Roman's Death
>>
>>1689737
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmDakhg45rk
>>
>>1689734
if we actually put effort into interacting with her, and get good roles in doing so, getting her on our side isnt impossible. itll be hard, but def not impossible.
>>
>>1689768
I dunno, she's pretty devoted to Roman. We'd have to convert him first and I just dont see that happening at all.
>>
>>1689770
anythings possible when the dice gods are on your side. also our mc's a pretty good dude
>>
>>1689768
A sure-fire way to win Neo's friendship is to kill an innocent person by stabbing them.

Since we're still in volume 1, the shadow people haven't been culled yet. We can kill one of them.
>>
To be fair to the "convert Neo" group, IIRC we never actually learn Neo's motivation for being a criminal.

I don't know how successful trying to turn her will be but I'd be willing to try.
>>
>>1689784
you never know if you dont try
>>
>>1689770
If you want to change someone's mind, you have to attack their motivation for doing what you don't want them to do, then create one to serve your interest. So, what's Roman's motivation for helping Cinder?
>>
>>1689787
Getting close to her works for me even if we can't turn her, namely, creating an interesting development for our character.
>>
>>1689789
He's scared of Salem and her minions, and thinks that by helping her he's on the winning side.
>>
>>1689799
so to turn roman is making salem/her minions seem not scary?
>>
>>1689799
>>1689803
Obviously we should just get Salem to join our side
>>
>>1689803
That'd be my plan if I were going to try it. "How?" is a bit beyond me.
>>
>>1689799
He's scared of Cinder, odds on he knew nothing about Salem.
>>
>>1689806
im in, if for the hilarity of an instant death early on
>>
>>1689803
Sure thing. We just need to make Whitaker seem more terrifying and powerful than Salem, and then Roman and Neo will become our pals. Hooray!
>>
>>1689807
Well, that and make it look like Salem/Cinder will lose.
>>1689808
That's also a pretty good possibility, and much easier to handle.
>>
I mean, alternatively we can make ourselves seem Scarier than Salem/Cinder
>>
>>1689814
Grimm Overlord Quest?
>>
>>1689815
Not likely.
>>
>>1689815
We already had ne of those in /trash/.
It became smut after like 3 posts.
>>
>>1689819
I mean, we dont gotta be evil, we just gotta spook the shit outta Roman, just a ton of OP goons in front of him, and turning him/Neo might be a cinch
>>
>>1689814
So what you're saying is, after we find out it was Cinder's idea to kill Penny, we unleash all our bottled rage and brutally murder Cinder.
>>
You know who we should really be worrying about converting? Jaune, I'm telling you guys that kids pure evil.
>>
>>1689820
Any archives for... research.
>>
>>1689808
>>1689813
Actually, his dialogue when he's fighting Ruby makes it pretty clear he's aware that Cinder is a part of something bigger. A few times, he refers to "the people" he's working for and is afraid of. "People", plural.

He's obviously not talking about Emerald and Mercury, he messes them around to their faces. So he must know that Cinder is a part of something bigger or he would just say "this woman". He may not know about Salem specifically, but he knows there's a bigger faction at play.
>>
>>1689823
I'd be down. Imagine how crazy we get to the point that we aren't flinching from attacks anymore.
>>
>>1689821
That's true, like >>1689808 pointed out, it's not likely you have to compete against Salem. And the Schnees DO have a lot of weight to throw around. I suppose it's possible, but getting there is a trip. If you guys do get there.
>>1689826
That makes me question what exactly Cinder showed him to scare him into line.
>>
>>1689815
That's not how you spell Jaune, that devious secret agent.
>>
>>1689826
He may know about Watts, Tyrion and forgetable but I doubt Cinder told him about the goddess queen of the Grimm.
>>1689825
One VERY lewd greentext that I won't post out of fear of being banned.
>>
>>1689831
>That makes me question what exactly Cinder showed him to scare him into line.
She does threaten him with her fire powers once. Not sure how she got him scared of Salem's group, though. But all know that RWBY can skip over those sorts of details, sometimes.

>>1689824
>>1689835
What if QM pulls a fast one, and actually makes Jaune an undercover agent? We'd never see it coming.

...Fuck, now I'm getting paranoid. This is what being Whitaker does to you, I guess.
>>
>>1689843
Jaune's seven sisters are the seven branches of Mistral Intelligence (MI).
>>
>>1689846
Does that make him MI8?
>>
>>1689846
Who said he was the youngest? Could be MI6.

Out of curiosity who's everyone's waifu at the moment?

Were you the one guy to vote Ciel on the poll last thread?

>>1689872
No shame in that, Anon. She's much more developed in this than canon, having been bumped to "Supporting Cast Member" and all.
>>
>>1689861
Ruby gets a Schnee harem.
It's convoluted!
>>
>>1689874
Nah, I don't vote in my own polls. Doesn't feel fair. I just think it'd be funny if we end up dating Ciel and she's having some silly internal strife about dating a robot.
>>
>>1689872
IM actually with you on that, i would have also put Ciel, but Penny and Neo are my top two, didnt feel like writing in a third.

>>
>>1689861
I actually don't have a strong opinion. I'll go for whoever I think will make for an interesting story. Ciel or Yang might be good, but I'm open about it.

...But I wouldn't mind a fling with Arslan, should the opportunity arise.
>>
What if we start dating Salem by accident?
>>
>>1689892
Plus, assuming that the favorite pairing for our sister is Ruby, It'd be a sibling double date.

I am literally fine with anyone other than Yang actually, i dont even care if i dont get one of my top 3.

True, but let me dream. Just a little.
>>
>>1689671
It’s obvious she’s upset about something. Was there an argument within her team? You knew what that felt like. Your sympathy pulls at you, and you have to come out and ask, “Do you want to talk about it, Ruby?”

She jumps, but slaps together a strained smile. “What’s there to talk about?,” she lies, “I mean, it’s not that bad of a nickname!” If Ruby had done that on a stage, you would’ve called it comedy, but right now it worries you. If she didn’t want to talk about it, though, you probably shouldn’t push her.

“I was talking about reopening negotiations for the removal of these stupid power ups!” You fake turning your scrutiny back to the game. Out of the corner of your eye, you see Ruby relax, and the two of you return to your competition.

“Not a chance! They’re part of the game, you can’t just rip out mechanics like that!” You do noticeably better over the next few rounds, and you can’t help but wonder if it’s because she wants you to stop complaining or if her mind is somewhere else.

(CONTINUED)

I'm pretty neutral on Yang personally, although imoutoing Ruby would be very cute. Obviously I'm not going to try and sabotage votes if she wins though.

(THE NEXT DAY)

SPWB had been to a few different combat classes over the past few days. Most, like Ms. Goodwitch’s sparring class, took place inside interior arenas the entire class sat around. Professor Port’s second class, “Team Combat”, took place in a relatively safe section of the Emerald Forest, whichever part of it happened to be mostly free of Grimm when the class loaded into the Bullheads.

“Today, you youngsters will be sharpening your coordination tactics! I know, I know, some of you have already demonstrated talent in this area,” Port says, with what you may have imagined being a pointed look at your team, “but talent is useless unless it is honed into a skill, and honing a skill comes only through practice!”

He points a dramatic finger into the air and lists your objectives, “Our reports claim that several Beowolf packs have been spotted around this area recently. You will be scored on how many of these packs you manage to clear before the end of our session today!” That sounded pretty easy.

“But it isn’t all that straightforward, oh no!” Damn, teach you to be optimistic. He continues, “Kills shall only be counted if at least two members of a team contributed to its demise! You begin in three minutes! Take this time to set out your strategy.”

The girls look to you expectantly. You’ve got this. You think. After all, its situations like this that got you selected as the leader.

>A) Split up and cast a wide net, Beowolves are child’s play.
>B) Stick together and mow down the packs quicker.
>C) (Write in!)
>>
>>1689895
I mean, there's no denying nor confirmation that she's not compatible.

There's also nothing stopping us from 'investing' upgrades to her. Like demagnetization.

Splitting up is dangerous. There's worse stuff than Beowolves in the Emerald Sustrai Forest.

>>1689915
I feel sorry for Ruby, having Neo on her team. She's gonna be so let down having a turncoat teammate.
>>
>>1689919
>B) Stick together and mow down the packs quicker
Make it a little less likely we'll be up against a Grimm alone and thusly unable to get points from the kill.
>>
>>1689950
Are you sure it's Neo you should be worried about and not Jaune?
>>
>>1689919

>>1690045
>implying im aiming for just 2
>>
So what do we do when Neo and Jaune's teamwork cleaves through the Grimm as fast as we can cast a sigil?

What do we do if he becomes GUTS-like in his decimation?
What do we do if Jaune taps into his super onii-chan powers?
>>
>>1690036
Yeah, it's called anything but bloody damn Moonbeam. Damn son, it makes Me think of hippies or elves.
>>
>>1690053
The only option I came up with addressing Jaune's Onii-chan powers is that we marry one of his sisters and gain the rest as our sisters.
>>
>>1690054

I haven't slept for days when I made this name anon

>>1690053

Then we must panic and immediately find a way to expose him as a mole to Ozpin. Or follow this anon >>1690062
>>
>>1690054
or just hippy elves then or wait? wouldnt that just be regular elves?
>>
>>1689919
Sticking together was the entire point of this class! If you aren’t going to practice as a cohesive whole, you might as well go home. But where will everyone be most effective?

You should…

>A) Take the lead and initiate, forcing the Beowolves to focus on you while the rest cut them apart.
>B) Hang back and finish off any Beowolves your team leaves open for you with your rifle.
>C) Focus on setting up for the others with your semblance.

Penny…

>A) Needs to be the powerhouse. Place her - and her swords - in the middle and let the team dance around her.
>B) Should repeat her last performance as a distraction and peel off any non-Beowolf Grimm who come to distract you from the mission.
>C) Has incredible multitasking skills. She should focus on injuring as many Beowolves as possible and let the rest worry about killing them.

Weiss…

>A) Is a born flanker. Keep her on the outside, darting in and out for opportunities that the team provides.
>B) Should set up kills with her Semblance.
>C) Needs to use her Dust expertise to corral the Grimm into one area.

And Blake…

>A) Is the perfect scout. She should find Beowolf packs and either lead them into the fight or lead the team to them when there’s no fight to join.
>B) Can keep the Beowolves focused on her without much risk, thanks to her semblance.
>C) Should move between the battlefield and stab them in the back.

((List each team member and option separately, like:

Name:
>Option)

Just to make counting easier. Majority rules per person, not as a whole.))

We just want to protect that small cinnamon bun Liquorice from that agent Jaune.
>>
>>1690219
It's quite obvious that Jaune is a God of Chaos masquerading as a Secret Agent who's pretending to be a inept huntsman.
It's why we must make sure that whatever evil plan he's got in store be stopped in it's crib.

Take the lead and initiate, forcing the Beowolves to focus on you while the rest cut them apart.

Has incredible multitasking skills. She should focus on injuring as many Beowolves as possible and let the rest worry about killing them.

Should set up kills with her Semblance.

Is the perfect scout. She should find Beowolf packs and either lead them into the fight or lead the team to them when there’s no fight to join.

You’ve taken almost half your allotted time to come up with a plan, and the girls are beginning to look worried. Just as you begin to sweat, it all clicks into place. You’re able to speak with confidence as you give your team their orders.

“Weiss, you and Penny will be working together to keep the Beowolves off of their game. Use your semblance to keep them in place. Penny, don’t worry about whether or not you land a kill, just hit as many of them as you can.” The two nod at you. Penny looks to Weiss for something, but Weiss focuses on loading more Ice Dust into Myrtenaster and ignores her teammate.

“Blake, scout out the area. If we’re in a fight, bring any small packs or lone wolves you find towards us. If the fight dies down, point us at the next group.” She narrows her eyes at you. “Where are you going to be?” she asks. You shrug in response, “Someone needs to actually kill the things.” You look between the three of them and notice something that puts you on edge. Blake is glaring at you, Weiss is glaring at her, and Penny is looking between the two of them, at a loss for what to do or say.

“TIME!” Port’s voice cuts through the tension, and the four of you dash into the forest, any tensions forgotten. For the moment.

When you see a blundering guy fend off stoneshattering blows with a a steel shield and the prime celebrity huntress says she finds his aura impressive, you start imagining WHY.

That, and the fact that Tyrian finds him interesting, and he dude can fight Qrow.

Oh, and his role is based around Joan d' Arc, who led the French army to win against Brittain, one of the largest and most sophisticated military forces at the time. She was also a saint.

The first pack Blake finds is pitifully small. Only three Beowolves are mulling about in the clearing, and your master plan doesn’t even get a chance to be put into action before they fall. Several skirmishes pass before you find a large enough group. The pack is nearly thirty Beowolves strong, which should be enough for Blake to lead more in before it’s over.

Blake disappears into the trees as you charge the group, letting out an overly dramatic battle cry to get their attention. Penny and Weiss are right behind you, and the three of you soon settle into an uneasy rhythm. Penny’s blades carve chunks out of the Beowolves that Weiss freezes in place, but your grandstanding and wide swinging keeps the bulk of the pack on you. You only know Blake is doing her job when the second pack crests a nearby hill and joins the fray.

The added pressure forces your group to focus up, and the tentative steps become a well-orchestrated dance. You don’t think you’d ever shattered this many frozen Grimm before, even during Winter’s mass combat exercises. The record climbs higher and higher as the fight carries on, and then a Beowolf’s claws bite into your aura from behind. You can’t help but let out a surprised shout, and the offending Grimm is quickly stabbed through the eye by Weiss.

“Are you alright?” You don’t answer, because the pain wakes you up from the daze you had fallen into and you notice exactly how many Beowolves surround you. No wonder one hand landed a hit, you could hardly see the grass beneath them all! You, Weiss and Penny are slowly forced to back into one another and abandon the plan. There simply isn’t enough space to safely separate anymore, and with the constant pressure, there’s no chance for you and Weiss to set up for the move you used the last time you were in trouble with a pack. What do you do now?

You’ve got no answers for this, and you don’t think Weiss will either. Blake’s out of your reach for now, so there’s only one place you can look to for help. “Penny!” you shout, dodging another swipe at your neck, “Please tell me you’ve got something to clear them out!”

Penny hesitates for a moment and is nearly skewered by a Beowolf’s claws. Weiss cuts the creature’s arm off at the elbow before berating Penny, “Pay attention!” The girl’s swords return to the melee as if she never stopped, and she finally answers you.

“I believe I have something, but-” You cut her off before she can make her point.

“We don’t have time for ‘buts’! Whatever it is, DO IT!” Penny nods with apprehension and draws her swords into a circle in front of her.

“Whatever happens,” she says, “stay behind me!” It’s all the warning you get before a green light blinds the forest behind you and you hear a monstrously loud humming sound. Despite everything, you can’t stop yourself from turning. Penny’s sword circle is firing an absolutely MASSIVE laser into the crowd of Beowolves, and she’s beginning to turn towards you. You’ve completely forgotten about her instructions, so instincts alone force you into moving out of the way and to the safest place in the soon-to-be clearing: Right behind Penny.

You and Weiss defend her from behind, but the fight is token. Most of the wolves hesitate at the sight, and before their murderous instincts can take hold of them, they’re blown away. When it’s over, all that’s left of the Grimm are rapidly evaporating piles of ash.

You and Weiss don’t say a word. You’d like to think that you were both trying to catch your breath, but the truth was that you had no response to what you had just seen. The scene remained perfectly unchanging for a few moments before Blake broke through the treeline with your shocked expression on her face.

“What was that?!” Her words snap Weiss out of her trance, and your sister angrily stalks forward with a snarl. “Yes, what was that!? You must have lead HUNDREDS of those things here! They nearly KILLED all of us!”

Her aggression puts Blake on the defensive. “I was doing my job! Unless I misheard him, that job was ‘bring Beowolves here!’”

This is getting out of hand, fast!

>A) Take the blame. “It’s my fault! I made a bad call and didn’t think everything through!”
>B) Defend Blake. “She couldn’t have known we were getting overrun, Weiss, we didn’t have any way of telling her!”
>C) Stay out of it. Stopping them before didn’t help, maybe they’ll get it out of their systems.
>D) Redirect, you can assign blame later. “Are you two serious?! Forget about that! Penny, how did you DO that!”

Do they have an earphone version for calls? Sounds like something people would want.
>>
>>1690732

>A) Take the blame. “It’s my fault! I made a bad call and didn’t think everything through!”

We should phrase it as a learning experience about communication instead of 'this was a bad idea/bad call'. Ironing out hiccups like this (forgetting you can communicate with your team) are the point of teambuilding exercises in the first place

What about the roll to comfort Penny? And the roll to convince Ciel that Atlas has a secret robot army?
>>
Points are not important. Team building is important. As long as we walk away from this with some good lessons about communication and keeping our eye on the goal then who gives a shit about the grade.

But like if we want to get really semantic Blake lured them all into a nice tidy package for the Penny deathlaser. "Luring them all into one place so our high power team members can kill them quickly and efficiently" sounds like 'contributing to their demise' to me.
>>
>>1691052
That just might be rules lawyering hard enough to get us a passing grade, but I'm pretty sure we're going to get an intensely sceptical glare from every professor in a six mile radius if we say it like that.

3d100 is fine. It's a classic, the curve is just right for the quest format.

5d100 basically guarantees that every roll will be extremely high, so the DC range that the QM can use actually becomes more limited. Not to mention that chances are, bias will mean that the difficulty wouldn't actually change much, so if anything things would feel even worse.
>>
>>1691163
Port's a bit of a fop in canon, but the man is a Professor at one of the top schools in the world and has kicked griffon ass off screen, and those guys proved too much for the MC. I choose to believe he's good at his job, he just has quirks.

Star: d20 rolled by players with QM rolling a d10 to select a roll to use based on last digit of post number. 20s outside of the selected roll add 2 to result, 1s subtract 2.

Monster: d20 with QM rolling 1d3 to select used roll from the first 3
>>
>>1691185
Wow, that sounds like utter garbage.
>>
>>1691198
It sucks 95% of the time. Occasionally you get a great set of rolls and can tear shit up, like getting a result over 30 with mods and pluses in Star vs but most of the time you end up being randomly bad at tasks you should be proficient at.

Of course the true patrician choice for systems are dice pools but I have seen maybe 4 quests ever that use them.

Tarragon doesn't go on hamburgers, silly robot

I saw a system once where it was best of 3 1d100, but everytime he'd roll a d2 to see if it was high or low
>>
>>1691274
Some of these dice rules make no sense to me.
>>
>>1691274
Seems like most rolls would end up mediocre?

The one system I truly hate and is used by a fairly well known QM is 5d20 with crits. It is so random none of the choice really matter since you will either fail horribly or completely demolish any task you have to roll for, no matter how you chose to approach it.

You have to step in. You’re the leader of this team, and if anything goes wrong for them, it’s your responsibility. “Guys!” Your voice cuts through the building argument, and everyone stops to look at you. You gesture to yourself as you explain, “It’s my fault. I made a bad call. I sent Blake out on her own with no way to contact the rest of us.”

Your words hang in the air for a moment before Weiss throws her hands up. “How is that what you take away from this?!” she asks. You and Blake are stunned, but Blake is quick to throw herself back into the argument.

“What is that supposed to mean?! How am I supposed to know when you’re having problems if no one tells me!” Weiss pretends to think about it for a moment, putting a finger to her chin. “Hmm, that’s a good question, Blake,” she says, before letting her real anger back into her voice, “Maybe next time, you could try LOOKING AT THE FIGHT!?”

They’re back at each other’s throats, and you don’t have any other ideas to stop them. You’re trying to come up with something when a familiar voice booms from further in the trees, “Poor communication skills!”

The two of them grow quiet again as Professor Port steps into sight. “Insufficient logistical foresight!” You flinch. Those were clearly referring to you, but he continues, “Inciting arguments! Ignoring a leader’s tactical reevaluations!” This time he’s clearly looking at Weiss, and she seems abashed. She can’t meet his eyes, but Port isn’t done yet.

“Failure to reaffirm team status! Refusing to reassess your actions!” Blake steps back towards the rest of you, and soon the entirety of Team SPWB is in position for the scolding. “And finally!” he bellows, and Penny takes a half step, hoping to position herself behind you.

“Disregarding the entire point of this exercise to handle things yourself!” You feel a pang of guilt. You had ordered Penny to do that. You open your mouth to point it out, but Professor Port holds up a hand to preemptively silence you.

(CONTINUED)

“Believe or not, ladies and gentleman, but these are not the worst issues I have seen today. It is clear that none of you are used to working together. It is to be expected, but here at Beacon, you are also expected to perform to a level many would find unreasonable. I trust that, when we next have this exercise, you will not repeat these mistakes.” A chorus of quiet “yes sir”s are the only responses you have.

Professor Port turns to lead you back to the Bullheads, and thus back to Beacon, but Weiss can’t hold herself back from asking, “Sir? What was our grade on this assignment?”

The man seems to consider the question a moment before answering, “Grade? What grade? I specifically remember saying that you were to be scored, I don’t remember anything about a grade.”

No one says anything else, so you decide to bite the bullet and ask, “So, what was our score?”

He chuckles to himself before answering, “Well, I’ll have to go through the footage to check. It’s up to some interpretation, you understand, but with Ms. Belladonna leading the packs to a single area, it could be argued that all the Beowolves Ms. Polendina finished with her impressive assault count to your score. If that ends up being the case, I’d say that puts you around… Maybe three hundred ahead of the next group?”

Just gotta say, you've really done a good job at capturing the feel of the show here. The party argument is very in-keeping with the tone, and the characters are being consistent. Too many QMs make the mistake of having every character be more reasonable than they should be in an attempt to 'fix' what they see as pointless conflict, but you've hit an ideal middle ground.

Slightly random praise, sorry, but I felt like I should say it.

Thank you.
Holy shit, is that all I can worry about every time I hit the " key. That means a lot.

You’re in your dormitory and continuing your book. It’s after classes, and the hallway outside is silent. It’s unusually quiet inside as well. All of your teammates claimed to have somewhere to be after the dressing down Port gave you all. It’s clear that none of them were feeling particularly great after that display, despite your high kill count. They knew what the lesson had really been about, and if it HAD been for a grade, it would’ve been a miserable failure.

You wonder if a similar situation had happened the day before, between Team RYAL. Ruby had seemed upset, despite her refusal to share the burden with you. Thoughts about your fellow team leader turned to thoughts about Ciel. You had barely heard anything about how she was taking to Team CNRP, and leading one of the most promising Huntresses of a generation. Just as you were beginning to wonder, your scroll beeped with a message. The number displayed was Ciel’s (which you had obtained from Penny, in case of emergencies relating to your teammate that Ciel would be better equipped to handle). The message was a brief three sentences:

“Are you free? Want to talk. Can later.” You open the reply box and think about what to say…

>A) “Sorry, got SPWB stuff.” Your team isn’t feeling great, maybe you should find one of them to cheer up. (Say which)
>B) “Can’t, meeting up with Ruby.” If she’s having trouble with her team as well, it’d be a good idea to talk to her. A problem shared is a problem halved.
>C) “Sure, where at?” This is the first time Ciel’s reached out to talk to you. It doesn’t seem important, but maybe the most important thing isn’t what she has to say, it’s showing up.

“Sure,” you type, “Where at?” You don’t have to wait long before the response. “Ballroom, from the first night. It’s empty.” You set your book aside and lazily carry yourself there. The moonlight is enough to see by, and the halls of Beacon are comfortably silent. Most teams are sleeping, you suspect. Once you find the ballroom, it is, like the halls, lit with an eerie blue light that shines through the windows. Ciel is standing at attention, observing something outside. As she said, the room is totally abandoned save for the two of you.

You walk towards her, and the sounds of your shoes is enough to alert her to your presence. “Whitaker,” she says, as stiff and formal as if she were here for a bunk inspection. So much for that tiny voice in the back of your mind teasing you about how romantic the set up had been. It sounded a bit like Weiss, now that you thought about it. No skin off your nose, in any case, you weren’t in any sort of mood for things like that today.

“Ciel. What’s up?” She turns to face you completely and she takes in your pajamas, frowning slightly. What did she want from you? It was eleven o’clock. “I’m here to ask you two things. The first, for you to clarify on exactly what you meant during our conversation outside your room. What, in detail, did you learn about Penny?” That’s what this was about? You guess it really WASN’T important, but you humor her anyway.

“Honestly, she didn’t tell me too many details, but it was easy to piece together. Small family, no social interactions, but skilled enough to get into a Huntsman academy? Penny has “secret-rich-girl” written all over her. I’m not sure why that was supposed to be a secret. I mean, I lived it too, how was I NOT going to figure it out?”

Ciel’s face take on a deep blush, but her features remain stoic and she nods slightly. “I can see how you, of all people, would come to the conclusion. I would thank you not to spread it around.” You half-nod. It didn’t seem like that big of a deal, but if Penny wanted it kept secret, then no one would hear it from you.

(CONTINUED)
>>
>>1691999
“The second question is perhaps more personal. Do you mind that?” You shake your head. In all honesty, you didn’t have that many secrets for a man of your station.

“How have you secured the loyalty of your team?” That wasn’t what you were expecting. “What do you mean by that?” you ask.

“During today’s exercise, I saw you give your team their orders. None of them questioned you. Weiss, I can understand, and I know Penny well enough to guess she wouldn’t disobey you, but how did you get Blake to agree? It’s common knowledge that she and your sister had an altercation the first day.”

You weren’t sure if you were honest. After all, she had still questioned you about how you were going to contribute. Did that count as “unquestioning loyalty?” You didn’t think so, but she never actually had a problem with what you told her to do. You needed more context.

“Where is this coming from, Ciel?” The cadet looks incredibly uncomfortable, whatever was wrong was wrong enough to break through her considerable reserves of discipline.

“Whitaker, what I am about to say does not leave this room.” You go as far as to cross your heart with your right hand raised. “I swear,” you promise. She takes a deep breath to steel her nerves and says in the most level voice she can manage.

“I suspect the remainder of Team CNRP is planning a mutiny against me.”

>>1692008
It's not a huge cliffhanger, but I'm going to have to leave off there tonight. I gotta get up early, so no 2 in the morning sessions for me.
>>
>>1692008
Well alrighty then, just fuck my shit up senpai.
>>
>>1692008
Whitaker and ciel literally have the same mind. Theres no way thats actually the case. She has to be uber paranoid
>>
Oh man, I'm really wondering how this is gonna play out.
>>
>>1692027
It's possible that she is just being a hardass to her team, something that young people wouldn't appreciate especially coming from someone near their age.
>>
>>1692008
SHADOW RUNNING INTENSIFIES!
>>
Guys I just had a revelation, Phyrra is the secret agent, not Jaune. Somehow she knows about Jaunes Onii-Chan Power and has come here to seduce him for her own gain. That's why she was worried when we sat down with both of them, she just didn't want us to take her ticket to power.
Oh man, it'll be such a shock when she (((accidentally))) kills Penny.
>>
>>1692020
Stay classy QM, see you soon o3o
>>
>>1692008
>" My associate Ceil can't possibly be this paranoid."

I mean, it's just Nora, Pyrrha and Ren. If anything, I expected issues in Cardin's team, what with their general attitude, but really? Ren's too in the zen, Pyrrha's probably just feeling an imbalance in attitudes since there's no Jaune to make everyone smile and have mmild fun that Nora can't provide for the mature team members, and Nora...

Nora is Nora.


This kinda makes me worried about RYAL. Yang is probably a bit much for Jaune to ease into combat around, and I don't think Ruby could give proper instruction to Jaune as he isn't nearly as proficient in combat as any of the three. Neo doesn't talk, and that's likely a big issue as she might feel like she isn't getting through to them. Neo is Neo but we reay don't know her game just yet.


I really feel that Ceil needs to chill and just drop the military standard she likely has for herself.

I dunno, what do you anons thing?
Also, thanks again for another good session, Brother! Happy to see you're sticking along with how the characters seem to naturally react and behave, not just assign a mood for them. It's really keeping the quest interesting!"
>>
Also, no more sessions this weekend. I got family shit tomorrow and a date Sunday. We'll aim for Monday, but that's a few days from now, so we'll have to see!
>>
>>1692095
Our Penny is too good for being offed so easily. Besides, what respectable robowaifu doesn't have backup bodies/memory units on standby, in case she goes down?
>>
>>1692136
Actually, on second thought, that date's supposed to be around noon. And the family stuff isn't confirmed. I'll let you guys know about tomorrow, but I SHOULD be free no later than 6 on Sunday, so we'll aim for that for now!
>>
>>1692140
I say we preemptively kill her just in case, it makes perfect sense, the reason Jaune was worried about us sitting down near him but not Phyrra Nikos is because she fed him lies.
>>
>>1692008
I can't see any of those goofs committing to a mutiny, but Whitaker's paranoia might throw a spanner in the works.

Pyrrha, maybe?
>>

>>1691325
If you can say, what were the worst issues that Port saw?

Well done on the quest so far, by the way. You seem to know and handle the material well.
>>
>>1692582
Honestly, those were it. He's chewing you out because it's his job, not because you offended him with incompetence. You weren't expected to do well, this time. It's the benchmark they'll be using going forward on your other team based assignments.
>>
>>1692582
Oh, you mean the worst issues he's referring to. He's talking about the other teams. He was watching all of you, after all.
>>
>>1691027
Wew, flashbacks to Cosgrove's Bleach quest and Peter Parker quest. Constant bitching on the dice rolls. Best of three became best of five, critical successes and failures, and we still ended up with terrible rolls and the bitching never stopped.
Shit rolls happen. It's just bad luck. Complaints won't change that.
>>
>>1693871
meanwhile in the good ol' Improvaizen quest we had nothing but nat 100s repeatedly each session. some quests just have good luck some just have the Qrows curse
>>
>>1693907

Fucking Qrow always playing Starborn.
>>
We gotta protect Jaune and Pyrrha. We can't allow them to get wrapped up in Cinder's act.
There's no way we can just let them fuck up the match to make Penny get broken.

I have a plan.
We kick Mercymury right in the shins, and have an inquest reason to believe his legs are fake.
>>
>>1693956
>There's no way we can just let them fuck up the match to make Penny get broken.

We can just pick someone else to be our final fighter man
>>
>>1693956
>protect Jaune
You fool, that's exactly what he wants.
>>
Probably obvious by this point, but no session today due to family obligations. Tomorrow should be good, but again, we may have to bump it an hour behind our normal schedule.
>>
>>1693956
I'd rather let shit play out and see how it goes.
Shits different enough now that we can't metagame perfectly, which we shouldn't be doing anyway
>>
>>1693983
But we should still help him out. If he stays oblivious to Pyrrha and becomes strong enough to protect her from Cinder, that means he won't go after Weiss, the fall maiden is protected, and Ruby doesn't get hunted by Cinder or Salem!

Then again, we might need the silvereye powers...

No, anon.
You have no idea how tempted I am to make that smut.

>>1694096
Agreed.
Nothing wrong with a frosty machine threesome though, right?

Anon, be serious with me. If the choice came down to it, who do we pick to be with Weiss
(Not that I want either one personally)

>Jaune
>Neptune

Which and why.
>>
>>1694230

Jaune.

Because fuck Neptune
>>
>>1694230
>Whitaker
Jaune has Pyrrha and I'm not a fan of Neptune. I'd rather have incest.
>>
>>1694230
They only get our approval if they can beat us in a fight. I'd suggest a series of trials if it wasn't for the fact Weiss would not take that well. Just because we're twins and the only ones in the family we can really depend on (besides Winter I guess) doesn't mean she'd accept us messing with her boyfriend.
>>
>>1694230
I pick the third option of shooting both in the face with a handgun.
>>
>>1694230
Jaune
He alread isn't in pyraahs team so fuck it.

If we don't get blake she should get neptune,(and sun) if we're not fucking the baggage out of her then the poor girl deserves two guys to make up for it.

Also, i see a lot of anons want to go the immature younger brother route.
>>
>>1694253
Sounds good!

And yeah, I don't get the whole incest thing either.
>>
Incest is fine, i meant the overprotective father thing.
Brothers are cool with their sister dating and shit, its dads that are assholes about it.
>>
Now another question. To those of you who said no to Neptune, should we try hooking him and Ceil up?

Blake and Sun?
Nora and Ren?

Should we go for the canon route and hook Jaune and Pyrrha up?

If we last until October and a new guy comes along that fits Weiss better, should we persue that option? I'm asking seriously, as Brother is against incest.
>>
>>1694230
none, because our imouto is too good for anyone.
>>
>>1694290
Nora and Ren or RIOT.
>>
>>1694290
dont try to hook anyone up, wtf.

Just binged this, and I just wanted to say this is some good stuff OP. Like the anon said earlier, you're managing to walk the tightrope of character interaction pretty damn well.

You're banging the coward drum a bit much. She fucked up, yeah, but literally all of us have some pretty notable mental/emotional issues. It's an opportunity for her to grow as a character, so what's the problem?

I'm sure if we loiter around the docks long enough we'll see him.

Sun's a very late addition to Vol 1, and you guys are about 3/5's of the way through. So not too much longer in the grand scheme of things.

“Are you for real?” You poured your skepticism on as thickly as you could. Pyrrha Nikos was on her team, a well known professional regarding all things combat. Then again, so was that Valkyrie girl, and from what you’ve glimpsed the past few days, you wouldn’t put it past her to try and make her leader walk a plank.

“They’ve been openly rebelling against my authority. That is the exact definition of a mutiny.” Ciel seems to be taking the possibility very seriously. If you’re going to help her (or, more likely, save the rest of CNRP from her), you’ll need to humor her. You settle your features into a grave mask and ask with a steady voice, “What exactly have they been doing?”

“Nora is the main problem. She’s completely disregarded my orders, both on and off the battlefield.” That did sound serious. Still, it’s best to take things one at a time. “Let’s start with off the battlefield,” you suggest. Ciel gives a professional nod before listing Nora’s transgressions.

“I’ve ordered her, several times now, to complete her assignments in advance. Despite how easy it is in comparison to her usual methods, Nora still refuses and only begins, at the earliest, the night before. The quality of that work simply cannot be on par with what she would have presented had she listened to me. I suspect she’s doing it on purpose to imply my incompetence to the teachers.” An interesting and effective strategy, if it’s true, but it’s easy to offer an alternative. “Maybe she’s just lazy?”

“The girl has more energy than all of us. She is deliberately avoiding the work and sabotaging her own grade, and the only one who suffers for it, other than herself, is me. I must be the target.” You knew that was true, too. You had never caught a glimpse of Nora at rest. Even so, shirking her school work wasn’t the biggest issue Ciel had brought up.

(CONTINUED)
>>
>>1698044
“What about during battle?” Ciel’s gaze hardened as she spoke, “It’s only happened once, during this morning’s team exercise. I gave clear instructions that Nora was to remain beside Pyrrha and provide cover for myself and Ren. She instead jumped directly into the Beowolves and killed far more than we had managed up to that point.” Ciel’s arms, which had been behind her back for almost all of the conversation, moved to cross in front of her chest, the only sign that she was growing more frustrated as she recounted events, “Pyrrha was quick to cover Ren, but she cannot be in two places at once. I had to fend for myself. Her actions put me in danger and denied the team all of the points we could’ve been awarded had she simply worked with one of us.” That was a much bigger problem, but Ciel still had only discussed one of her teammates.

“What about the others? How are they involved?”

“Whenever I seek to correct Nora’s behavior, both Pyrrha and Ren are quick to deflect for her. Sometimes they will attempt subtlety and try to distract me with their own issues or concerns, others they will try and debate with me. They’re protecting her from me, and unless they’re incapable of seeing what’s happening, it’s an implicit endorsement of Nora’s methods for having me removed as the leader of the team.” That sounded…

>A) Ridiculous. “Ciel, honestly. They’re just chafing. You’ve had to have noticed that things at Beacon are much less formal than the Cadet’s Academy?”
>B) Plausible. “Hmm. I’ll keep an eye on them in the future. If there really is something there, they’re more likely to slip up around me than you.”

I feel a little forlorn we didn't veer Whitaker and Ciel into becoming hardcore conspiracy theorists, just then. Can you imagine the plots we could have uncovered with two bright students on the lookout for hidden agents?

>>1698152
Pyrrha certainly seems to be going the extra mile to find out what sinister plot Arc's hiding. Truly she is as incredible and dedicated a detective as she is a warrior.

Ciel didn't fall for Jaune.

>>
>>1698047
Ciel is unmoving, but you can see all of her muscles coiled with tension. She’s really worked up about this, isn’t she? You could sympathize with the feeling that everyone was out to get you, but being under covert fire for so long has taught you the difference between real threats and imagined ones. You place a hand on her shoulder and Ciel reflexively relaxes.

“Ciel, honestly.” You take a deep breath, thinking how best to phrase it, before it comes to you. “They’re just chafing,” you explain, “You’ve had to have noticed that things at Beacon are much less formal than the Cadet’s Academy?” Her mouth thins before she opens it to remind you, “I’m not an idiot, Whitaker. The lack of proper dormitory oversight was a big sign.” With you properly reprimanded, the offended air leaves her and she let out a small sigh.

“You’re right. We’re a long way from Atlas. A different approach is necessary with different subordinates, and they don’t get any more different than Nora Valkyrie…” Ciel nods to herself, and the moment of uncertainty passes. The quiet confidence you hadn’t noticed she had until it left her returns in full force. “I’ll talk to Ren. Nora’s claimed they’ve known each other for years, perhaps he’ll have an idea to make her listen to me.” You smile at the plan, give her a pat on the shoulder, and work your way back to your dorm.

When you open the door, Weiss and Blake are already in their beds and fast asleep. Penny has returned as well and is writing something in a notebook as she pours over one of the textbooks for your more mundane classes. You decide against disturbing her and climb back into your bed.

(A FEW DAYS LATER)

You hate red. You’ve never had a reason to before, but the color was trying to claw its way into your retinas like a movie monster through an air vent. Red trees, red leaves, red grass, and one red little girl whose team seemed so BLISSFULLY happy compared to your own. You drive a spigot into the stupid red tree with an angry kick and pretended that it was the section of your skull directly centered over the “hearing” part of the brain. Behind you, Jaune, the cocksure little bastard, gave an appreciative “ooh” at another of Yang’s hyperbolic stories. Ahead of you, Weiss shot another angry comment over her shoulder which caused Blake to bristle.

You had thought team RYAL tagging along during the Forever Fall trip would be fun. Sure, Jaune suggested it, which made you a little suspicious, but what could he do with seven other people to watch him? Turns out, he could draw a big fat underline between the differences your teams had: RYAL worked together because they understood one another, SPWB only worked together because you were around to make them.

Despite Professor Port’s reprimand, things between Weiss and Blake had been steadily heating up. That had been upsetting Penny, who had no idea what to do about it, and her constantly shifting, pained expressions had put you on edge more than the fighting had. You could feel the constant tension burning a hole in your brain.

You set the jar beneath the spigot and open it, allowing the sap to flow. You stand and stretch top pop the joints in your back. Nothing left to do but wait for it to fill, you suppose. You take a look around the surrounding woods to make another mental note of where your teammates were, a habit you were trying to pick up from an Atlesian cadet manual (courtesy of Ciel). Blake and Weiss had moved away from one another, finally, and seemed to be mulling over their frustrations. Penny, on the other hand, had sought out the company of Jaune and Liquorice, or “Ellie,” you suppose, and seemed to be having a pleasant conversation with the blonde. None of them were good situations, and as always, it falls to you to handle them.

>>1698490

It's been nothing but work for Whit so far anon. When this shit is done let's just take time to relax, hang out with people outside of our team, build up and rank up social links
>>
>>1698266
Weiss is stewing on her anger, and you’ve never known that to end well. You take a few moments to try and relax before throwing yourself into the fire. Once you’re reasonably yourself, you approach your sister. She’s chosen an area far enough to speak normally without being overheard, but close enough to keep an eye on the others. Weiss is still on her guard when you approach, and rushes to get the first word in.

“If you’re here to play diplomat, you can keep walking.” That was pretty weak, coming from Weiss, so you shrug it off. “I’m not playing anything. Right now, I’m the team leader, not ‘big brother Whit.’ So if we need to have a talk, then we have a talk.” She looks wide-eyed at your tone and you shake your head. Guess you aren’t as calm as you thought. “Whitaker, are you okay?” Weiss seems concerned rather than angry. Thank goodness for small miracles. “Fine,” you say, “But I’ll be a lot better when you and Blake start getting along.” At the mention of Blake, Weiss’s mood sours again.

“Get along?! How can I be expected to get along with her when she’s a contrarian! You saw it during the team exercise, she has to fight over every little thing either of us say!” You mimic her crossed arms and ask, “Do you have a reason why she’d do that, or do you just think she’s spiteful?”

“Don’t act stupid, Whitaker! She already told us. Blake hates us because of our family, because of the SDC.” You run your fingers through your hair. She had a point, and it isn’t one you’ve forgotten. Blake had some form of issue with your father’s company, specifically their labor practices, if memory served. You really hope that isn’t all she cares about, because it’s way outside your capabilities to start providing better employee benefits.

“That can’t be everything, Weiss. I’m sure if we find out what’s actually bothering her if we take the time to ask.” She scoffs at the idea before motioning at something behind you. “Good luck with that when we can’t find her.” You look over your shoulder to where Blake was standing only a moment ago to find it vacant. Seems like she’s run off somewhere else.

>B) Take Weiss with you and go look for her, so you can have that chat right now. “We will find her, and when we do, this talk is happening!”

“I’ll be right back. Think about what you want to say to her before she gets here.” Weiss is about to retort, but you leave before she can, and whatever she’s about to say isn’t worth screaming at your retreating back. It takes you longer than you’d like to find Blake, but eventually, you spot her silhouette against the eye-gouging bright red forest. You cut through the underbrush, making no attempt to hide your movements, and she turns to watch you approach. She doesn’t run away again, so that’s good. You think, at least. She also doesn’t look very happy to see you, which you know isn’t good.

“Blake, we need to head back.” She pulls out her scroll, checks something, then fixes you with a glare. “They haven’t sent the call to return to Beacon. Why do I need to go anywhere?” Great, maybe Weiss was right. She really is a contrarian.

“Because I think you, Weiss and I all need to sit down and have a chat. As a team.” Blake doesn’t lower her guard. Unless your eyes are playing tricks on you, you think you can see her take a step back.

“I’m not going to be teamed up on by the two of you, Whitaker. If someone wants to talk to me, they can do it without backup.” You raise your hands, as if showing you’re unarmed, and agree, “Alright, then we can talk now. Weiss isn’t here, Penny isn’t here. It’s just you and me.”

Blake finally relaxes a bit. Angry is more relaxed than “about to run away,” so it seems you’re making some sort of progress. “What could you possibly want to talk about?” You’ve got a lot to get through. In many ways, Blake is your most mysterious teammate, but you don’t think she’ll have the patience to work through everything right now. What do you want to start with?

>A) The tension between the two of you. “Why are you so mad at me? We’ve only had one argument before today!”
>B) The reason she and Weiss can’t get along. “I know, at least a little bit, why Weiss doesn’t like you, but I have no idea why the feeling’s mutual.”
>C) The relationship between her and the SDC. “My father’s company affects a lot of people. It affected you enough to call us out on the very first day of school. What happened?”
>D) Blake herself, when she isn’t dealing with the Schnees in any way. “Well, what do you do for fun?”

There’s one question that’s been burning in the back of your mind since the team exercise, and Blake’s given you a golden opportunity to have it answered. “Why are you so mad at me?” you ask, and Blake recoils slightly in surprise. “What do you mean ‘why’?!”

“We’ve only had one argument before today! One! Outside of that one time, I’ve been perfectly reasonable, and I think I had a good reason to get emotional about my potential murder! I stood up for you during the team training, I even punched my sister in the stomach for you!” You catch your frustration for today starting to aim itself at Blake, and you shove it back down.

“For me?” she asks, and it’s far too quiet. “You did those things for my sake?” You open to mouth to reaffirm it when you notice that she doesn’t look surprised. She looks even angrier. “Do you honestly think I’m going to believe that?! You took the blame during training because it made you LOOK good!” Blake grits her teeth, but she isn’t finished talking, “Just like you took center stage in that stupid plan, to make yourself look good!”

Those bright eyes of hers appear on fire when she reaches the final accusation. “You didn’t stop Weiss for me, you stopped her for your family! So the Schnees could look like the good guys! So if you think you can stand there and lie to me, and everything will be okay, then you can turn around and leave now, because I’m not that stupid!”

Your broiling anger at her words starts to melt away as you notice something. “You know what? You caught me. I was lying.” Blake returns to a neutral stance, still obviously angry but willing to let you confess. “I didn’t do those things for you. But I didn’t do them for me, or for my family. I did them because I thought they were the right things to do.”

Blake rolls her eyes at you, but you cut in before she can dismiss your words. “I don’t let fights just happen, Blake. I stop them. I don’t let people take the fall when I make mistakes. I own up to them. I don’t order people to do things for me and kick my feet up, I lead them.” She can see how seriously you’re taking this, and her own anger, if it’s still there, is well hidden at this point. Blake crosses her arms and looks to the ground.

“How am I supposed to believe you, Whitaker?” She’s giving you a chance, at least, so you take it. “You trust me,” you say, “and if I break that trust, make me regret it.” She looks back up, and you want to think that you can see something in her that wants to believe you.

“Fine. I can live with that.” You almost smile before you remember that you came after Blake to bring her back to Weiss, and that conversation is going to be just as pleasant as this one was.

“So, Blake. I don’t know much about you, and you don’t know much about me, right?” The crunching of dead leaves underfoot had been driving you insane. You have to break the silence.

“I… Guess not?” Blake doesn’t seem to get where you’re going with this, but at least she’s talking. “How about we make a game of it?” you suggest. “You get a question, I answer, then I get a question and you answer. Fair?”

“I guess…” She chews on her lip for a second, then begins to ask, “How did-”

You cut her off with a raised finger. “Oop, it’s my turn. You were the last one to ask a question.”

Blake actually smiles at that and motions for you to go on. Now, what did you want to know?

>A) “Well, what do you for fun?”

“What do you do for fun?”

Blake eyes you with a minuscule amount of disbelief. “Isn’t that a little… Boring?” You hold a finger in front of her nose and she goes cross eyed attempting to keep it in view. “You can’t answer a question with a question,” you inform her before you retract your hand.

“I don’t know… I like books? Sometimes I play board games or watch stuff online. I go to the movies every now and then. Normal stuff,” she finishes with a small shrug, “boring stuff.”

“I’m not sure about boring, most of that can be pretty cool. Either way, your turn.” She hums, trying to think of something better than what you asked. It doesn’t take her long. As she comes up with something, Blake visibly loses the cheerier atmosphere that the game has fostered.

“You said that the White Fang tried to kill Weiss. How?” You’re dazed a bit that she’d ask so brazenly.

“You do know that you’re supposed to start easy with this game, right?” Blake doesn’t speak to point out that you’re breaking your own rules and waits for you to answer.

>A) “It was one of her concerts in an open air stadium. A White Fang Sniper tried to climb up the side of the building, but someone pulled him off before he got too high and beat the hell out of him.

>B) “We were young. Eight, maybe, on a family trip. Mother was… Well, herself. Drunk off her ass, so one of the Fang managed to sneak Weiss off under her nose. They almost got her out of the park before one of our bodyguards found them.”

Tall, dark, some type of horns on his head and with a wickedly long katana. If Winter hadn’t been there… Well, I don’t want to think about it.”

“That’s… Not an easy thing to talk about, but alright.” You stop walking and take a moment to get your thoughts straight. Blake is mercifully patient. “Alright,” you begin, “Someone sent a threat to father about some business deal he was working out at the time. He ignored it,” which wasn’t very surprising. Your father received hundreds of threats like that every year, “and Weiss almost paid for it. The hitman they sent was something else.” The mental image you have of this potential murderer featured heavily in your nightmares for the next few weeks afterwards. You don’t physically swallow, but if Blake hadn’t been watching you, you might have.

“Tall, dark, some type of horns on his head and with a wickedly long katana. If Winter hadn’t been there… Well, I don’t want to think about it.” Blake doesn’t seem to want to either. She’s gone pale, and it looks like she’s shivering slightly. Her voice starts with a small shake when she asks, “How long ago was this?”

You knew the day, but made a show of pretending to remember. “Uh… Maybe three months before we got to Beacon?” You shouldn’t have said that. Blake looks even more afraid. Or panicked, as if she expected the White Fang’s personal hatchet man to jump out of the foliage at any given moment.

“Look, Blake, relax. I know it’s not fun to think about, but it’s been months since anyone’s seen him, and if he was going to attack again, he wouldn’t wait for us to be at a school with hundreds of trained fighters, right?” You had no idea when assassins were going to strike, that was the point, but it seemed to make Blake feel better.

“R-right…” Even if your hot air made the fear go away temporarily, Blake spent the rest of the trip within arm’s reach of at least one person on your team, including Weiss. You aren’t sure what rattled her so much, but if you’re going to keep your promise to Blake about doing the right thing, it may be a good idea to figure it out.

Okay, sorry for slowing down at the end, but once again, I'm about to pass out from my day of vigorously not fucking my girlfriend. I can stick around for a quick Q&A if anyone would like to clarify anything.
>>
>>1699879
How closely does this assassination attempt line up with the train job?

You running again tomorrow?
>>
I'm curious as to where the other options would have gotten us.

For anyone who missed it earlier in the thread, Toruc set up a discord for the quest! Go to:

for any off-topic discussion, you don't want to bump the thread with!
>>1699889
I set up a timeline, for if you chose to be Blake!Twin, so that would put the assassination attempt around a week after the train job, though it's vague enough that Blake would have no idea if she was still in the White Fang when it happened.

Probably not. I'll call it a rest day.
>>1699891
>A) Sniper assassination
Ghira, Blake's dad, is the guy who saved Weiss. This assassination attempt would've been the final straw that caused him and Kali to drop the Fang, but since the description is so vague and he likely didn't talk with Blake about SPECIFIC instances of White Fang violence (given it can be years later and she thinks Adam will give a fuck about Schnee employees), Blake wouldn't have known who it was either and we would've had to wait until Faunus Island for that reveal.
>B) & D)
For the people that didn't want to shake things up much more. B was for confirmation that your mom's a sack of shit, while D is for 100% ambiguity.
>>
>>1699879
You'll get her next time Brother. Have faith.
>>
>>1699914
See ya next time you run then.

Did Weiss actually think of things to say to Blake or was it just angry mutterings the whole time we we're gone?
>>
>>1699937
She planned for two different conversations, one that would go well and one that wouldn't. Unfortunately, with Blake too fruit-looped to be forced into a heart to heart by Whitaker, she descended into angrily muttering about all the time she could've spent angrily muttering.
>>
>>1699946
Oh and how was Penny the whole day? She was there I suppose
>>
>>1699961
You'll find out how Penny spent her time next session. I guarantee that Whitaker will be very interested in what Penny did during her field trip.
>>
>>1699968
*gasp*
>>
>>1699914
Thanks for running brother

who's your waifu
>>
>>1700016
Can't say, it'd give her supporters an advantage. It's not Weiss, so I got that going for me.
>>
>>1700080

I feel we made some good progress on sorting out our team, there. If nothing else, I think Whit managed to make Blake trust him more.

Hoping we can get everyone working together by Volume 1's end. We'll need a cohesive team to deal with those terrorist attacks and that tournament.

>>1699914
> we would've had to wait until Faunus Island for that reveal.
Oh, so we're going to Menagerie, at some point? Interesting.
>>
>>1700580
We might be.
I'm assuming our choices will probably be sneaking after Blake to go to Menagerie or going to Atlas with Weiss/Penny.
>>
>>1689655
What is this and why do I smell autism?
>>
I'm surprise Jaune Rena and us aren't hanging out more often, are the three of us otherwise on all girl teams? The only other guys are the assholes and I think we need some bro time
>>
>>1700584
It'd be really awakward if we followed her and Sun did too.

Although, I predict that these guys would follow Weiss or Penny over Blake.
>>
>>1700604
It'll also give us a chance to scout out the subversives.
>>1700605
"Whitaker, what're you doing here?"
"Hey Sun, just following your girlfriend cause I'm worried about her, no big."
>>
>>1700607
"Hey Sun, why don't you go back on your team, make sure they are doing safe after the inciddent."
"Ah don't worry, I'll stay here and make sure Blake doesn't get in any more problems."
>>
>>1700619
"Well problems always seem to find us, don't they?"
"You mean like that giant sea dragon?"
>>
Would Blake's dad like us better then Sun?

If this quest ends up going the Blake route how fun would that meeting be?
>>
>>1700630
He might be a little suspicious of us at first.
It'd be way more fun if we chose that he saved Weiss from a sniper, but I have nothing against throwing fuel on the "fuck Adam" Pyre.
>>
>>1700630
I'm not sure. On the one hand I think we're more diplomatic and personable than Sun. On the other hand, well, we're a Schnee. I would expect Ghira and Kali to share Blake's initial unease with us.

In fact, it suddenly occurs to me how terribly unwise it would be for Whitaker Schnee to go to Menagerie. Even if the citizens don't catch wind of us and hassle us, the White Fang is right there.
>>
>>1700650
We could wear a hood and not use our semblance willy-nilly.
Let it never be said we don't make less than sensible decisions when it comes to helping our teammates.
>>
>>1700650
I have enough faith in the anons that as long as we don't act like asshats towards the parents and stay friendly then they should eventually warm up to Us in a bit of time.
>>
>>1698666
>>1700080
So what did the low roll cause? Seems like the conversation went well for a 46.
>>
>>1700868
Wasn't the 46 just for finding her? I thought we rolled about 80 for the conversation.
>>
>>1700875
Yeah, I'm just surprised that the whole situation didn't turn out worse.
>>
>>1700868
My DC was around a 70 would convince Blake to return, lower than a 30 means you can't find her, and anything in between (which you got) was you find her, but she's not willing to follow you for the peace talks and you have to go through your own diplomacy check before you can try for Weiss.
>>
>>1700921
Thanks for forgiving our shit rolls.
>>
>>1700928
They haven't been that bad. My checks are based on how difficult something should FEEL. This was a more serious, dramatic moment, so it's was harder than it would've been if the mood had been lighthearted. You kinda have to do it like that when you don't have a character sheet, which I don't want to do. Whitaker should be more you guys as a collective than a collection of numbers that automatically lean towards certain things, like diplomacy or combat.

You get what I mean, you guys should feel justified punching someone in the schnoz instead of talking it out without a number hanging over the situation to point out you would've been better off talking to him.
>>
>>1700938
I actually like narrative quests like this one.
>>
>>1700938
Hey brother just wondering when to tune in next time for another episode of team spiderweb
>>
>>1701233
We're looking at tomorrow at 5 CST, right now.
>>
>>1689861
Finally got caught up, personally kinda pulling for Blake. Slowly grew to hate her in the show, but Whitaker and Blake would be interesting to watch happen.
>>
>>1702353
I'm pulling for Blake or Neo but a Penny is fine too
>>
>>1704045
Can't really see Neo working out, and I'm not really a fan of going into things specifically to waifu a canon villain anyway. Penny a cute and all, but I also can't really see that happening.
>>

The next few weeks passed in blissful monotony. With Blake willing to give you a chance, she was much more receptive to your gentle prods that got her and Weiss either out of an argument or out of each other’s way. You had yet to actually SOLVE that problem, but it was manageable, and that was more than you could’ve hoped for before the trip to Forever Fall. Classes went well, with all none of your teammates having difficulties in either combat or general courses.

Working as a cohesive whole was still shaky, but had shown considerable improvement. As soon as you found an opportune time to work with Blake and Weiss, you were sure it’d only take a few more Team Combat courses for the group to begin to rely on one another.

More good news came in the form of Team CNRP’s rapidly improving performances. Evidently, your advice to Ciel (and whatever advice she had gotten from Ren) had turned things around for them. You had yet to sit down and chat with any of Ciel’s teammates, but you liked to pretend that you could notice their moods brighten. At least, you had noticed Pyrrha’s mood brighten. Nora wasn’t capable of melancholy and Ren wouldn’t emote properly if you had bought him his own island nation, so it was difficult to tell how they felt about anything.

Nothing was ever perfect, however, and the first year students of Beacon were no exception. RYAL was having difficulty finding their footing, so the rumor mill of the school said. You had heard mildly disturbing things about arguments in their dorm, as well as reports that Jaune Arc had been performing somewhat poorly, with “somewhat” surrounded by the biggest air quotes the speaker could find. The final team, Team CRDL, had shown themselves to be eager bullies, picking on anyone they could either outnumber or outmuscle, preferably both. You hadn’t personally seen anything they’d done, so you took those rumors with a grain of salt. It was good they could work together without your intervention, you supposed.

You’re using your free time today to finish the last of the leadership novels that your father gave you. You thought they would’ve lasted much longer than a single semester, but then again, you had skipped over anything in them that your father had highlighted. Those sections mostly focused on his brand of leadership rather than yours. Leading through outsourcing hardly seemed like leading at all.

You hear light footsteps rushing towards the dorm’s door, so you set your book down and patiently wait for whatever was coming to ruin your good mood. Penny crashes through the frame and looks around with a panicked expression before her eyes settle on you. “Whitaker!” she exclaims, somehow not out of breath.

“Penny, what a surprise.” You don’t bother trying to sound sincere. “What can I do for you?” She pulls you out of your chair and onto your feet, entirely ignoring your yelp of protest at the manhandling. “It’s Jaune,” she says with real fear in her voice, “he’s in trouble! If we do not hurry, I’m afraid CRDL is going to hurt him!”

>A) Go with her and help Jaune. “I’m right behind you!”
>B) Refuse to help and explain why. “Penny, something isn’t right about Jaune! I don’t think he’s the type of person we should be helping.
>C) Hold on for a second and ask her to describe the situation. “What, exactly, happened?”
>D) Refuse to help, but keep your reasons to yourself. “If he’s in trouble, we should let the rest of Team RYAL know and let them handle it.”

Penny is worried so we should at least go to make her feel better

Penny is clearly panicking, but heading into a situation blind won't help.

>>1705726
>>C) Hold on for a second and ask her to describe the situation. “What, exactly, happened?”
I have to wonder just what exactly is making RYAL so ineffective.

I wonder if it's just that without Pyraah's help Jaune is even more fucked than in canon.

>>
>>1705741
A mute girl as his partner, a 15 year old prodigy inadvertently making him feel even more worthless, and Yang's potential impatience at him not being able to keep up. Without Pyrrha's help or pleasant personality to keep him on an even keel, Jaune is probably in a bad head space.
