You've always wondered what you would do if you suddenly gained new, superhuman powers.Well now you know. You unleash a deadly plague, nuke a Canadian town, and take down a mafia don. And you only meant to do ONE of those.Well regardless, you've got some creep called "The Watcher' out to get you now. Apparently he got caught in the blast radius of the nuke you set off and didn't take kindly to it. He's got some ability to summon things from movies... you think. You don't know that much about him other than he sent the fuckin' TERMINATOR after you, with a chaser of Predator and T-1000.But you're a gamer and you've got more than one life.So the question is what is your next move?>Day 31 Begins.>All powers refreshed.You've spent the previous day brainstorming and trying to figure out what to do alongside your normal routine. You attempted to decipher the Quarantine Scientific Literature by emulating a scientist from Half Life 2... but you unfortunately forgot that all the scientists in that game are physicists. You gained enough knowledge to deduce that the data is advanced medical knowledge and techniques usable in a general sense, but nothing else.
>>2034889FuqJust use TOR to email it to the CDC from public wifi.Also call Alex up, ask if he has a way or tracking or finding people.
>>2034889Can our hacker phone send the information out anonymously?If so, send it out to the CDC, one major hospital we know of that is attempting to treat the plague, and the federal government.Proceed to dragoon spirit our dragon by emulating legend of dragoon, under the guidance of our skull mentor.
>>2034889shape a superfast, inteligent, loyal bird and have him deliver it straight to the cdc in atlanta
>>2034903>>2034900Using your superphone, you send the information to the CDC before giving Alex a quick ring."Uh... yeah, I've got a way or two to find people. Why?"
>>2034955Need to find the fuck that attacked you and make him pay or hes gonna keep coming til youre dead
>>2034903If you are going to dragoon the dragon, I need a d100 roll and one other anon to second it.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>2034958
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>2034958I'll back it up.To other Alex: "I mentioned being attacked by a robot and an alien? They were sent by a dude who is pissed off at me for a reason that's only like 5% my fault. So I'd like to find him to prevent any more assassins being sent my way. I'd owe you big time if you could do that."
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>2034958
>>2034962>>2035052>>2035060You prepare an elaborate magical ritual that takes most of the day under guidance from your skull mentor. Whispering words of encouragement, you command your dragon to step within and begin channeling magic. Raw arcane power crackles around the room as you raise your Fictorum staff and shout the words your mentor taught you. The dragon twitches as its body begins to take on a silvery sheen, a wispy essence begin to waft off of it like steam off of cooked oysters. Your shouting grows more insistent as you feel the immense power within yourself, within the dragon and concentrate on PULLING one of those out...Something goes wrong.The dragon screams in pain, twitching and flailing wildly. You shout the words faster, thinking maybe if you hurry to the end before whatever happens you can salvage this...The dragon knocks over a brazier in its blind agony, its tail rubs out part of the rune circle. The magical energy unleashes all at once, electrifying the beast, and it collapses with a low groan. As it dies, it gives you a look of pained betrayal, then whimpers, closing its large eyes for the last time.>>2035052"Ooookay, not how I expected this conversation to go. I'm going to need to know more about this guy. Anything you can tell me, really."
>>2035098Well, fuck, it failed. Not like we can just try again with a new dragon either. Oh well, spend the rest of the day Shaping our Charizard."Well, I think he is really big into movies, maybe especially old action movies, because he was able to send look-alikes of two terminators and a predator on the assault."
>>2035160You manage to only increase your Charizard's strength a little as most of your time Shaping it is actually devoted to learning the strange makeup of this beast."Anything else?" Alex asks.
>>2035098sorry dragonTo Alex:"He's a guy who, I believe, has the power to summon title characters from movies to do his bidding. So far he's sent the T-800 from Terminator, the Predator from Predator, and the T-1000 from Terminator 2 at me. He also has some way of bringing himself back to life. He blames me for his death, even though it was 95% some Canadian assholes fault, and even though he's come back to life anyway. His title is The Watcher. I think. That's pretty much all I got."
>>2035098Good job dipshits, all that bitching about dragooning and you flub the roll. Anyfuckingways please find us another mansion, post some listings and give me my tribute please
>>2035211>He blames me for his death, even though it was 95% some Canadian assholes fault, and even though he's come back to life anyway.Careful, that is getting dangerously close to mentioning our part in the Harmont explosion. No matter what, we absolutely must keep that knowledge among as few people as possible. I know flying gifted girl knows, but we can deal with her when she comes for us.The ease of keeping a secret is inversely proportional to the square of the number of people who know. Let's keep that number low, as far as within our power.>>2035211Is there anything we can tell him about the watcher's voice? We heard that, right?
>>2035225As though a flubbed roll wouldn't ruin whatever we were doing at the time anyway.Anyhoo, we have a better minion ready to go.
>>2035098Boooooo, our dragon died. We should keep the body intact for future purposes.Tribute Destroy All Humans!
>>2035245Or we can tell people our version now, so that if they ever hear it from the Watcher or the Heroine they won't be like "oh wow revelation he's evil", they'll be like "actually this is what happened".
>>2035245You did, it was deep and male.>>2035225You've got a lead on another mansion. It'll be a cool million to buy. What was your tribute again?>>2035213"All right. All right, I think I know something I can do. It'll take a day to work, though. Can you stay safe until then?"
>>2035261Or better yet, we can tell no one ever. That seems like the best policy to me. I don't know about flying girl gifted, but the watcher sure doesn't seem eager to tell others about us. And as long as no one else knows we are gifted, who is going to believe them if they its our fault?
>>2035271"Thanks man. I really appreciate this. I'll find some way to return the favor."Voting against getting another mansion. Let's just get a small house. Inconspicuous. It's not like we even used the mansion space for anything.>>2035282Had to be someone's fault. I think not telling anyone is opening ourselves up to a big risk. Telling Alex goes a long way towards alleviating that risk. I don't think he's gonna blab to anyone else, and I think he'll even understand. He said he's messed up and made mistakes as well. We just have to frame it favorably.
>>2035271Bahamut Lagoon was my tribute. I'm going to need betterbetter then million dollar mansions, how about some rural land parcel?Why are we telling alex this shit again? Pretty sure this is bad
>>2035293Can we table this until at least we have dealt with the Watcher?
>>2035322I guess, since other Alex seems to have enough info.
ill support getting new rural out of place land.like, plantation levels of huge. build tall walls with cameras every few yards or so.
While we are discussing what to buy next, what should we do with our ruined mansion?
>>2035260A Shrink Ray appears in your hands!>>2035321A great treasure of gold and gems piles up at your feet.Tributes: 2/4
>>2035400>Tribute: Final Fantasy 6, tier 2. Aim for magicite
>>2035546Six shards of Magicite fall at your feet.
>>2035374Have it repaired of course. That should suck up some days
>>2035560Fucking bitching. We need to find out what 6 we got quickly, I'm all for using an identify scroll
>>2035566I'll save you the trouble. Magicite Shards summon a random esper one time each.
if we got nothing to do we can work on the cure or something. or do something with the quarantine tape i guess
>>2035577Cool. Let's check them listings for rural land and get our daily news fix in. I'm just going to suggest again that scouting around town with our scouter might get us some results.I would love to please do this
>>2035577TRIBUTE LEAGUE OF LEGENDSTRINITY FORCEETONS OF DAMAGE
>>2035671At least twelve magnificent look cape flutter down around you... Sunfire Capes.>>2035660"The US Government claims it is making great progress on a cure for the Green Death, but independent sources are skeptical. In other news..."In other news, OP is tired as shit and has to stop. But don't worry, things are in store for tomorrow.
>>2035698fuck, 12 sunfire capes? they don't even stack!plus that flame aura will burn shit we don't want burnedguess we can sell some
>>2035698Sell the old mansion land and look for large stretches of isolated land we can build shit in and cover in tarps so we can fight without hiding our abilities.>>2035723It does only hurt enemies and not the surroundings but we can test it.Then we can start looking to shape 11 monsters or something.
>>2035723We can horadric cube it into one really bitching cape.
>>2035098Couldn't we just like Raise the Dragon? Still trying to understand how this works.
>>2036002That's a good question. In some final fantasy games, you can cast auto-life equivalents on fallen allies to use it as a more expensive version of raise. I don't know if the FFTA Auto-Life spell can be used that way. No reason we can't try, right?
>>2036002>>2036091>it gives you a look of pained betrayal, then whimpers, closing its large eyes for the last time.I think the dragon would turn hostile. Let it be.
>>2036121Reptile medal. I am given to understand that it can't not follow orders.
>>2036121I think it was more it wasn't expecting us to end up killing it. Which, us reviving us should help with those trust issues. Too bad we couldn't just poach it. >>2036091If we have FFT/FFTA/FFTA2 we should probably wait until we can specify exactly what we want. Because we don't want to waste FFTA on something other then the Gran Grimoire or a Cinquedea.
We got 4 phoenix downs if you guys want to revive it.
>>2036159They were already used up, its how we got Auto-Life and Refresh on our spell list.>>2036178DERP!Completely forgot about those. Lets try that then, with reptile medal and Charizard at the ready.
>>2036223>They were already used up, its how we got Auto-Life and Refresh on our spell list.Damn. A Cinquedea would have literally been the best thing ever.Steal Ability is so fucking OP.
>>2036232To be clear, we used up FFTA and FFTA2. Not FFT.
>>2036237Yeah, Cinquedea is FFTA/FFTA2. FFT's got some good stuff, but nothing on the level of broke that knife exists on.Can we Emulate AND Tribute from a game, or does Emulating count as our one Tribute and remove it entirely? Can we emulate from a game multiple times?
>>2036244>Can we Emulate AND Tribute from a game, or does Emulating count as our one Tribute and remove it entirely? Same series, different game, yes.Same game twice is a no-go. First-thread rules, baybee.>Can we emulate from a game multiple times?Second verse same as the first.
>>2036244I know your pain, and I have definitely been building something of a wishlist for once we get the ability to request specific items from our tributes.
>>2036223Well Auto-Life SHOULD raise the dragon again, since it hasn't triggered. I'll blame a worn out OP
>>2036606It probably timed out. Doesn't last until death, it wears off.
>>2036683It does last til death though. That's the point of the spell
>>2036720No, it lasts for a number of turns or until death, whichever comes first. It triggered fighting the Predator, and then even if we recast it, we waited a whole day before the spirit thing, and spent most of a day setting it up. It expired or never got recast.
>>2035098God damnit you assholes killed our badass dragon familiar. That was literally the most useful thing we've ever had.
>>2036836Lol, literally one of the most disposable and LEAST useful things we have ever had. We already have a better minion than the dragon could ever have been.And as if that weren't enough already, we literally have both phoenix downs AND the ability to just shape another dragon, bigger and stronger than before. Although it would be stupid to spend shaper charges on a new dragon when we have a pocket-portable minion we could be amping into absurdity.
>>2036821That's stupid and not how AutoLife works, because Alex DIDNT die his last casting is still active. Ur not gud. L2FF.
>>2036947It's funny you're telling me that when I apparently know it better than you.
>>2036958Its funny that your a smug asshat that's trying to get us killed. I'll grant that the dragon is probably a goner unless our downs are going to work on it.The Charizard might be helpful but I doubt we'll be able to shape it due to weird pokemon evolution physiology.And since apparently nobody else is going to bother;>ShapeLife: a bird, intelligence in a eagle size body.Figure out how to put scouter on record or direct link it to superphone. I'm determined to find some other signals before an Alien appears at the door next
>>2036986I'm trying to get us killed by pointing out how our spells actually work? Shit, you've been trolling me this whole time. Nice one, I totally fell for it. 6/10.
>>2036986Two things.First, we used up our Daily shaping already.Second, we already sent the information to the CDC with our superphone, so we no longer have any need of bird.On an unrelated note, we at least managed to learn SOME of Charizard's physiology (as always, doubled by the growth egg), and our Charizard-Shaping can only get better as we learn more and more about it. He is the best kind of minion, the kind we can carry around with us without anyone batting an eye, so however long it takes to learn his physiology is time well spent.
the best part about the charizard is we can make our own after we've studyied it. fuck, we could add pokemon evolutions and skills and shit to all our shaped minions.
>>2037019The birds for finding the watcher dude. Tomorrow then
>>2037250Also the virus has been handled. 'Murrica's going to be a world hero. In the meantime can we please go find the watcher before an Alien appears at our door, both literally and figuratively?
>>2037250>>2037257Alex is doing that for us. He said it'll take him about a day, so we should be gearing up and preparing to confront him.
>>2037262Wow cause I mean there's only three of us in a single city. Not like a bakers dozen or no shit, amirite? No I doubt that I am.Just scouter the city already. What's the worse that could happen except we gain knowledge of possible threats and don't have to get off our asses with bird.Cause I'm almost to the point where a tank in the woods is child's play. You wanna tribute something?
>>2037352Does the scouter have that much range? It's been years since I watched dragonball, I only remember them being used when the enemy was like 100 feet away. I guess it also depends on how big the city is.If we can really scan the whole city from our house then do it, otherwise I'd tribute some stuff at the end of the day, mostly practice our magic to learn those spells we got before, and move when we get the location from other Alex.
>>2037370According to most sources the scoutercan indeed do a flyby for power checks
>>2037492Flyby? Doesn't that assume that we can fly like a DBZ warrior?
>>2037495That's what a shaped bird is for
>>2037520So we take a day to shape a bird that can wear and use the scouter and is smart enough to remember results and report them back to us. Sounds difficult. Maybe we succeed anyway, we'd still get the info back at roughly the same time that Alex would get back to us. I'd rather do that in the future, and focus on using shaping to further enhance Charizard for battle with the Watcher.
>>2035809You put the land up for auction and begin looking for land to buy. Everything close to the city is bought up, but there are a few possibilities out in the boonies...>>2036606I don't see an action casting the spell on the dragon before it gets dragoon'd. Did I miss it?On that note...You've been playing around with the idea for a while, but tonight clinches it. You need to do a Scouter patrol. The question is how best to do it? You could just drive around... you could go on foot... or you could use your shiny new jetpack for flyby recon. There's probably other approaches too, if you think hard enough.But which one?
>>2037616just drive to the highest point in the city and scan
>>2037616How long has it been since the Dragon died? I want to try a phoenix down on him.Not like we have much use for them otherwise.
>>2037636Roll a d100.>>2037660You take out one of the Phoenix Downs from your bag and wave it around for a moment before you realize you're not exactly sure how they used this in the games. Well, it's a moot point because you quickly remember that Phoenix Downs in FFIV heal the KO'd condition... which is not death, just close to it. It's unlikely this is sufficient to bring your minion back to life.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>2037666
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>2037666 you guy do know we can just shape another one right?
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>2037666Eh, whatever.inb4 nat 1 and everyone on earth learns our exact location and nature and we learn nothing.
>>2037670>>2037675>>2037685You drive to the tallest building in the city, a tower complex with a revolving restaurant and observation deck on the top. You enjoy a rich dinner of lobster and filet mignon because fuck it you earned it, then step out and slowly search the city with your Scouter, which you pass off as a novelty item.It takes a long time... A long, long time. It's almost closing time for the tower before you see it... In another hotel a few miles away... a glimmer of a power signature.
>>2037702What equipment did we bring out with us besides the scouter?Get closer and investigate. Don't go in guns blazing. It could be someone else entirely, and the last thing we need is to make another enemy. Find out the address of the hotel first, then depending on what we brought we'll decide on a follow up.
>>2037702Ok, how do we want to go about this?Ambush? Explode the entire building? Fill his room with colorless toxic gas? Rest for the night and Shape an obscenely poisonous insect to stealth its way in? Full on assault with Charizard?Many angles to look at here, and they all differ in the amount of exposure, collateral damage and effectiveness we may see.
>>2037719It's the Dolphin Hotel, a very fancy and expensive place. It's not hard to get the address.You have all your guns in your Digital Inventory and your usables plus Black Blade and lightsaber in your bag of holding.
>>2037702meh, mark down the hotel where you found the power signature. You will deal with it when you finish your business with watcher. Go back home.
we're gonna need to get close eventually so he doesn't revive again.Speaking of which, add a couble mortal kombat games if we haven't yet so we can emulate shang tsung and take the watchers soul from him so he doesn't revive.shit, if it becomes an item we could cube it.
>>2037702Shit, if we have all that then we should move in and investigate further. Wish we had an energy shield to replace the one arnie crushed. Tribute Borderlands pre-sequel.
>>2037756Don't do it you fool! We need to save that game for when we can finally choose our tributes.We'll use our emulations as our trump card, like always.
>>2037729Did we bring our pokemon?
>>2037762Won't do much good to save it if we die first because we don't have it.
>>2037729Let's go back to the Warehouse, and start fusing some shit with our Horadric cube. We'll be ready in the morning.I for one want to try fusing our battle mech with our plate armor. Maybe we can get some power armor out of that.And that one anon was talking about fusing our 12 sunfire capes.
Well, what other games have a energy shield? I know the halo series have it.
>>2037779The point being, that if we don't get a shield from tributing Borderlands the pre sequel, where the fuck else are we going to get a convenient energy shield like that one? I would rather be unshielded now, than unshielded forever.
>>2037783we already have power armor from fallout
>>2037792Path of Exile has items that grant energy shields. They're magic too, so they synergize with us better than borderlands shields which are pure tech.
>>2037774Of course.>>2037783You can't fit the battlemech into the cube. You could try to fuse the capes, though. Do you want to do that?
>>2037840Save 3, fuse the rest.Reminder that we need to scrub our info from the airport computers.
>>2037853Your cube produces three Forgefire Capes.
>>2037894Fuse those. Wonder what they are.
>>2037907Looked it up, looks like sunfire cape on roids, normally only available to a specific character, who can make max tier+1 items.
>>2037907You create an item you dub a Novafire Cape, a Forgefire Cape with the additional property of enhancing your fire spells.It's getting very, very late. You can't help but pass out on the bed.You have no dreams this night.>Day 31 end.>Day 32 begin.>All powers refresh.You wake up with a sense of purpose. Alex should be calling sometime today. The only question is what to do while you wait.
>>2037937Try shaping the charizard again. Also equip the Novafire cape somewhere safe and make sure it doesn't immolate anything but enemies. If we have any additional time learn the fire spell from the spellbook we got.
>>2037937Tribute Mass Effect
>>2037937Shape a smart, loyal spy bird.Send it to the dolphin hotel to confirm its the watcher.
>>2037945The Novafire Cape only activates when you wear it so you can stow it in your bag easily enough.>>2037967Charizard or bird, which are you doing?>>2037956There is a pause before a metal case appears before you. Opening it up reveals an Omni-Tool, 5 doses of Medigel, and a Spectre-grade Pistol. A note reads, "Use these well and stay alive, soldier. -Shepherd."
>>2037986Ok, anon seems to really want this bird so lets do it
>>2037986Charizard. We can look into the bird when we aren't preparing for an insane battle.Can we interface the Omni-tool with our super phone?
>>2037986Oh fuck, can the omnitool be use to repair the shield?
>>2038002The Omnitool can interface with the phone, but not the other way around.>>2038010You manage to enhance the claws and fangs of the Pokemon to be sharper.
>>2038016>>2038020This, holy shit this.
>>2038016>>2038028You prod the broken shield with the OmniTool, but quickly realize you have no idea... really, how either works. There's a manual for the tool but you haven't read it yet.
>>2038033Welp, emulate mass effect 2 and learn all about the omnitool asap. Then repair the shield if possible.
>>2038033Get on that shit.

Hotel eh? Well I did my scouter homework today and know it can determine elevations. What floors that SIG on OP? Let's call every room with superphone til we hit pay dirt.Other wise let's go there and tribute a fucking building. I've got several in mind, some within tier 2 parameters.You guys want to tribute some shit now or should I do it?
Are we just using up the days tributes and emulations or are we going to fight the watcher?We got some mortal kombats already added, right?
>>2038050>98Fuck you guys, this wasn't supposed to be possible.Between the manual, your channeling of Tali, and some sheer luck and brilliance on your part in using your Cube and magic to speed the process along in parts, you manage to jury-rig your shield back together. It's not quite as good as it was, and it's fragile now, but you've got your shield back.>Jury-Rigged Borderlands Shield gained.>>2038058Fourteenth floor. What exactly are you doing/saying with the calls?
>>2038073We have to handle the hotel carefully, because we don't actually know if that is the watcher, could be flying girl.On an unrelated note, HOLY SHIT the dice are hot tonight!
>>2038081Pretend to be conducting a survey, ask for their names and a description of their typical daily activities.
just hack the hotel and look through their shit
>>2038091Bad idea, if it is the watcher, he knew where we lived, so he probably knows our face/voice.Igor might work, if we were willing to risk him.
>>2038104If he freaks out we know it's him. We can track him with the scouter if he tries to flee.
>>2038116If he freaks out, we lose the initiative. >>2038098 is right, lets hack the hotel information system, see who is in the fourteenth floor.
>>2038081OP what model is our omnitool? Is it better than our phone at hacking?
>>2038122That won't do any good. How would the hotel know if he was a gifted or not? What do you think he did, gave his name as the Watcher? Lol.
>>2038098This would require going to the hotel just so you know. The place has a website, but it doesn't appear to be linked into their systems.>>2038091This would also require being close. Your phone can hack into the hotel's phone systems, but it needs to be in range.
>>2038134K, might as well gear up and go. Make sure shield is equipped and revive is cast.
>>2038143Before we go do we want to wear the power armor?
>>2038148No, that would draw a shitton of attention. Better to keep that for when we're sure we're going to need it.
>>2038134Lets goAlso, can we put our power armor in our new borderlands inventory.Idea, perhaps we could fix the shield better by combining it with something in the cube.
>>2038134Gear up with everything that'll fit on us. Novafire cape in our bag though, we don't know if it'll set things on fire. Scouter on, with us casually looking around, he may have minions patrolling. Have our pokeball ready to release charizard. Weapons in the digital inventory.How are we handling this if its actually him, guys? We can consider our identity completely blown if we get into a prolonged engagement in the middle of a hotel, so that probably isn't the best idea.
>>2038174No, there is no armor slot in the Digital Inventory.>>2038143You gear up and take a moment to cast the spell before entering the hotel. The lobby is huge, bustling and full of people. It isn't hard at all to find an unoccupied seat and take out your phone, pretending to be just another world-weary traveler.Are you hacking the hotel's phones or trying to hack their network?
>>2038202>>2038204Guess you're trying the network first, then phones. Roll 1d100.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>2038212
>>2038197Hmm, that might work, we do know the Watcher's voice after all.
>>2038213You manage to get into the hotel network and pull up a list of the names on the fourteenth floor. There aren't many, maybe it will come in handy later.What are you looking for?
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>2038212do you want multiple?
Rolled 93 (1d100)
>>2038227Look for a guy that rents lots of movies.
>>2038238There's a few of those, but none on the fourteenth floor.
>>2038246How about anyone with special/weird requests like do not disturb this room or no room service.
>>2038227check the dates, cross out the ones that arrived after we were attack and the ones before the harmont nuke
>>2038295There are five on the fourteenth floor with dates in that range.>>2038284There are plenty of those, more than a few people put up the old DND request at any hotel... but there's only one on the fourteenth floor that also falls in the date range.
>>2038246No. Check for complaints on the 15th 13th floors in regards to the 14th.What a difference a scoutered bird would make. 3 passes and wed have some powered ass
>>2038326You don't find any, though there's one room where the room on both the floor above and below it is vacant.
>>2038356Same as the 14th floor with the DND in the date range? Might as well check that room out before trying the phones. Let's try once more to switch our scouter to a close range detailed reading, carefully this time.
>>2038356Paydirt unless its some freaked orgy type thing (these things happen). Fuck the police throw on mask, get to 14th after we know the room, REC this fucking block and let's get rid of him. Charizards on point. Leave Igor unless we need bail.>Warming up a tier2 SimCity tribute...lol
>>2038382Last time we tributed a SimCity type game we got a life sized bronze statue, so I'll veto that for now.
>>2038376Yes, same room. Your Scouter is set to close range now, but something in that room is interfering with it much like the Golden Sphere did. You can't get a detailed reading. On the bright side that in of itself is sort of a give-away.>>2038382I'm not clear on what you want to do. You want to get to the room and REC the floor to turn off the power?
>>2038412No, we want to go up the room, have a hack ready to unlock the door, knock on the door, then if we hear someone moving inside, unlock the door, then send Charizard in first, with us following closely behind wielding the black blade to quickly take the target down. Of course, we auto-life Charizard.
>>2038412You know what, find room REC block just to be safe. Char on point>>2038411I said fuck the police didn't I?
>>2038382No le random tribute pls>>2038448Nah brah, we shouldn't go looking for trouble. Unless we are sure it's the watcher.>>2038412Is there a phone we can hack inside?
>>2038448No, there's no guarantee it's the Watcher.>>2038460My concern was more along the lines of it would be a waste.
>>2038467We still go in if its flying girl. We can pretty easily call the room from a little outside the door to ascertain the rooms owner.I don't suppose we picked up xray vision anywhere without me realizing?
>>2038473We know it isn't Alex. I mean, it could be flying girl, but who else could it really be?The priest? The Weeb?And like I keep saying, its pretty easy to confirm the room's owner.
>>2038488Are you going to call the room?
>>2038496Literally any other gifted is who it could be. If we don't kill them right away, it's another enemy which we really can't afford.>>2038503Let's do it. I don't think we ever talked to the Watcher, he shouldn't be able to recognize our voice.
>>2038503Call when we're right next to the door. rush in the room as soon as we hear him
>>2038505Literally can't be most of the gifted.>>2038503Yes, but move in immediately if it is the watcher.Leave the almost completed hellraiser puzzle box at the door if it is flying girl and quickly say "package for you", then leave.
>>2038516>>2038518The phone rings, and rings... then a smooth, male voice, slightly deep picks up."Yes?"
>>2038518What if it summons something really nice?...Maybe she'll reconsider her hatred of us.>>2038522Does the voice sound like the Watcher? We heard him before in our dreams, when he sang us that little limerick.
>>2038522hangup and start hacking from outside the door
>>2038522don't say anything. Just hang up. If its the watcher we get ready to battlem
>>2038525>>2038533It's him.You go to hack the door... and find no keycard reader. It has an old-stye mechanical lock with a keyhole below the knob.
>>2038545lets place a thermal detonator at his door. anybody disagree?
>>2038545Cut through with the lightsaber."Surprise asshole!"Depending on what we see inside:1) Unleash charizard, hack and slash with lightsaber and black bladeor2) run like hell if he has superman or someone comparable in the room with him
>>2038545no no, not the door, the phone.Start fucking and glitching it out as a distraction and have the pokemon bust the door down while we throw a thermal grenade afterwords.Then the pokemon charges in with us while we shoot with the starwars laser gun
>>2038545Also please wear a mask if we have one or get one befor we wreak shit.
>>2038545Fuck that Charizard breach that shit after AutoLifing ourselves. REC this buikding /floor/block whathaveyounot and let's get it crunkin'.Nobodies using tributes so fuck you guys when push comes to shove, we're going tier2 fuckoffmode. Bet
>>2038565>>2038583You glitch the phone, then throw your pokeball, unleashing your Charizard to break down the door. The wooden door gives away with ease, flying to the side as your lizard stomps into the room.The room itself is very large, with two doors from the 'living area'. You hear movement from the bedroom, but no one's in the entry area.
>>2038594fuck, he's readywe revived ourselves and charizard?go to the bedroomalso ask how he came back to lifealso remark how it's mostly the leafs fault that he died in the first place
>>2038594Shit, mask up, send Charizard to bust into the bedroom, pull out BFG.Do we know how many shots the BFG has?
>>2038636Don't bother quibbling about whose fault it was that he died then, what does it matter when we are here to kill him NOW?
>>2038643thermal into the bedroom
>>2038636lets wear the cape as well
>>2038636>>2038641You burst into the bedroom... only to find it empty.The phone next to the bed rings.
>>2038646I don't think we have thermals (?). I'd go with the shock and awe of our mightiest fire spell.Since the REC didn't happen I can assume we're on hotel footage
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>2038670Do NOT answer that. Scouter around us full sweepRolling for miracles I guess
>7What a horrible night to have a curse.>>2038685Your Scouter is picking up the interference everywhere.
>>2038670REEEEE, look for the interference.
>>2038687Slice through the floor with the lightsaber, you said above and below were empty, right?I don't feel like sticking around in a failed ambush, that's just asking to get attacked.Once we are through, recall Charizard, and book it out of here.
>>2038696It's all around you.>>2038698You slice through the floor and drop into the room below you. The phone here begins to ring as well.
>>2038670hack the hotel and erase huge blocks of time on videos including our precense and the damage and break a window and fly out on charizards back.Go high so we can't be seen and go to the town outskirts.
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>2038704its there nothing unusual in this place? no weird objects?
>>2038704Leave through the door, start getting ready to hearth out.Leave the phone alone, at best its the watcher gloating, at worst its a trap.
>>2038716There are no video cameras on this floor, hacking the lobby cameras will take some time.>>2038718No, it looks an exact copy of the room you just left, minus the hole.>>2038719You retreat back to the door and find it closed again. Closed and locked. With a sigh you ignite your saber and slash the door open......only it doesn't open. You blink and the damage done by your saber is gone.The phone continues to ring.
>>2038743spooky, cut through the door try not to blink.
>>2038743Try the Black Balade.If that doesn't work, hearth out.Continue to ignore the phone.
>>2038753thisDo the hacking from far away afterwords.
>>2038753The Black Blade slices through the door... and you find another door behind it."Fuck this," you mutter, pulling out your Hearthstone and channeling the familiar green energy. Everything goes black for a split second......and you reappear in the hotel room.
>>2038759Hmmm, you said the hole is still in the ceiling?Try the floor again, while masked of course.We may have been caught in some sort of pocket plane, or else affected by something in our mind.
>>2038759>>2038767Ah yes, the magic rope, yes try that, if getting through the floor again doesn't help.
>>2038768You slice another hole and fall down into another copy of the same room. This time when you look up, the hole you created is gone. The phone is still ringing.>>2038773The Magic Rope animates wildly, but then stills itself, apparently unable to function here.
Well, I am gonna bite the bullet and pick up the call. Set it to conference mode so you don't have to pick up the receiver.
>>2038781Continue to ignore the phone.Shoot the door handle with the blessed bullets gun. Two shots, see if that sticks.
>>2038799>>2038781If that doesn't work, try shooting the phone. 1 shot this time.
>>2038791>>2038798You set the phone to conference and are startled to hear a voice that sounds like an electric hair-clipper that has learned how to talk."Five! This is five! Ignore the siren! Even if you leave this room, you can never leave this room. Eight! This is eight! We have killed your friends! Every friend is now dead."
>>2038814And on that note, I have to leave. We'll pick up tomorrow at around the usual time.
>>2038814>>2038798Like I said, the phone was obvious bait. Hang up, shoot the door and the phone with the blessed bullets.
>>2038814Cool shit. googled it and its something to do with 1408(film). Lets set the room on fire.
>>2038814>>2038818And, now that I look it up, blessed bullets would probably have worked!I am beyond salty right now.
>>2038848its not too late?
>>2038848>>2038860yeah, just shoot it next update.
>>2038848By the way, this is me, I am temporarily elsewhere.
>>2038822You pull out your Silver Gun and shoot the door and the phone and nothing seems to happen beyond a rumble and slight grumbling groan.>>2038844How are you setting the room on fire?
>>2041430We have a charizard
>>2041469Indeed you do."Charizard, use Flamethrower!" you command, your giant lizard roaring and unleashing a fiery blast from its jaws. A cone of fire splashes against the wall, incinerating it instantly and causing the room to shake as an unearthly wail echoes around you. The phone begins to melt into plastic goo as an unseen force throws your Charizard out the window, and out of your sight. The window slowly begins to repair itself as the fire sprinklers turn on, attempting to put the nascent blaze out.
>>2041489lel our Charizard can fly anyway. Wear the cape and staff then cast flame tongue.
>>2041489Call charizard back to the pokeball from the opening and do this>>2041497
>>2041489Supporting >>2041497BUT FIRSTget our jetpack equipped
>>2041522You have to pick one, Novafire Cape or Jetpack. You can't have them both on at the same time without damaging them.>>2041503The Charizard is already past the range of your pokeball.
>>2041539smash the sprinklers so it can't put out the flames while we wait for charizard to fly back to us.
>>2041539escape from the damaged window while we can then. charizard catches us or we jetpack to safety.
>>2041539Just the jetpack then
>>2041539Meh, even blessed bullets don't affect the room very badly?Wear Novafire and longfall boots. Blast the entire room with flametongue, but mostly the window, and jump out.
>>2041549>>2041497You shrug on the jetpack and ready your staff, aiming your blast at the sprinklers and melting them to slag before spraying as much of the room as you can with fire before your spell runs out.>>2041557Then you run towards the window and attempt to jump out. You crash into the glass as it reforms, pain jolting you as a thousand shards of glass cut into your skin. Your nanoaug stops this from being fatal, but it still is incredibly painful. Your jetpack pulses to life and for a moment you are airborne... then you feel something loop around your ankles and smash you against the exterior of the hotel. You look back to see six writhing tendrils wrapping around your legs. The tendrils look like someone took things in a hotel room, mashed them together, and liquefied them, stretching them out to absurd dimensions. The phone hisses in your ear."THREE! This is THREE! Even if you leave this room, you will never leave this room. FOUR! This is FOUR! Even if you leave this thread, you will never leave this thread. FIVE! This is FIVE!"
>>2041610drink an ether and cast flame tongue at the tentacles.
>>2041610Fuck, google told me that should work.Maybe the room isn't damaged enough yet?When we get dragged back inside, wreck the sprinklers and cast flametongue a lot
>>2041610Call out to Charizard to use Flamethrower. >You crash into the glass as it reforms, pain jolting you as a thousand shards of glass cut into your skin.Was our shield not able to protect us? It seemed to handle cutting implements no problem before. Even weaker it should be able to withstand glass shards.
>>2041610Also wear the longfall boots and cape instead.
>>2041641>>2041628You let the room drag you back in, taking the time to chug an ether down. The moment you're back within the room you let loose with flametongue in all directions, not ceasing until the room is a blazing inferno and the unearthly wailing is almost deafening.Finally some unseen force propels you out of the hotel room, and you are soaring through the air. You tumble end over end before you manage to activate your jetpack, stabilizing yourself just long enough to see the entire Dolphin Hotel shimmer and vanish like it was some sort of mirage. A perfectly empty space in the city is all that remains of it.
>>2041674where our pokemon?
>>2041674Recover CharizardReturn to warehouseCry over how the Watcher is 2 gudTribute FableWait for Alex to save us with his big knight dick
>>2041674Alright, so I say that next time, we just explode wherever the Watcher is hiding immediately, determining his hiding place by emulating some game with super hearing.
>>2041717Do we have explosives on that scale?
>>2041729BFG can probably suffice for most purposes. It also wouldn't be too hard to tribute or emulate something explosive if we really need. Weapons that can pierce walls could also work, like the laser.>>2041674Flametongue or have charizard flamethrower the nearest normally flame retardant object, just to be sure the room isn't following us somehow.
>>2041764Seem like it would bring a lot of collateral damage if he is situated in another place with lots of people.
>>2041681>>2041710>>2041764You recover your pokemon and retreat to the warehouse without further incident. You burn a few things when no one's watching to make sure the thing isn't somehow following you.>Tribute Fable.A pile of miscellaneous valuables atop which two potions sit, one red, and one blue.
>>2041803Scouter the potions.Tribute Destroy All Humans! 2
>>2041803Those better be elixers and not shitty potions. Our character wasn't that much of a cheapskate.Shit, maybe he just drank all the elixers right away. No reason not to.
>>2041784We tried being circumspect, and it didn't work. I don't mind collateral damage if it means ending a proven threat.
>>2041859The issue with that is it might attract more proven threats.
>>2041811>Destroy All Humans 2 TributedA Death Ray appears before you.The Scouter says one potion increases your physical fortitude, the other seems to imbue you with magic.
>>2041896Is the weapon attached the the saucer?
>>2041907>Disintegrator RayMy mistake, I got the two mixed up.
>>2041898>>2041928You feel a little healthier and you feel like you can summon a bit more magic.Are you just waiting on Alex, now?
>>2041939We can check the news while we wait
>>2041964I'll open with that then.I hate to call it early, but something's come up. Tomorrow's session will be bit a bit erratic, but... well. We'll see.Thanks for playing!
>>2041866The problem with NOT immediately obliterating him is that we waste 1.5 threads fighting a hotel room, spending resources and accomplishing nothing.Until he is gone, we have a proven threat. If we obliterate him we MIGHT get another. I'd rather obliterate the known threat over worry about MAYBE getting a new one.Also, forgive the slow post speed. Internet is so shit here that recaptcha keeps timing out.
>>2041964"Panic strikes the city again as a skyscraper in the prestigious downtown area vanishes without a trace! Eyewitnesses say one moment the now empty lot was occupied by a large building, sixteen, maybe twenty stories tall. The next it was gone. Even more mysterious is that no one seems to know for sure what building was actually there! Records of the lot and what structure was occupying it seem to have been altered or destroyed, and no one can agree on what the skyscraper was. Some are saying it was a grand hotel. Others insist it was an abandoned and run down eye-sore. Even more are firm that it was just a parking garage up until a day or two ago. Is this some sort of mass hysteria or hallucination caused by the growing panic over the Green Death? Some bizarre marketing scheme gone horribly awry? Or is something else pulling some heavy strings behind our fair city? One thing's for sure, WKRF-23 intends to find out!""Thank you Kate. In other news, Task Force Durango has issued a statement, saying that the perpetrators of the North Korean and Harmont incidents are known to use powerful hallucinogenics to draw attention away from their actions. Citizens are asked to report any bizarre sightings or strange phenomena. The drug they use apparently affects the memory centers of the brain associated with entertainment, and are believed to be responsible for a rash of bizarre sightings in Canada and the East Coast of popular media characters. Bizarre as it is, if you see your favorite comic character flying through the sky, or something out of a movie happening, report to a nearby hospital immediately. You may be affected by this hallucinogenic."
>>2042983And I will return in about seven hours.
>>2043078>Resumed.Your phone rings late in the afternoon."It's Alex. Meet me at the burnt out wreck on Lumbarg Street. I've got your answers."
>>2044016Head there and ready for combat but don't be obvious about it.Just in case he uncovered too much and wants to start something.
>>2044086>>2044092You drive your shit car to the meeting point. It's already getting dark when you make it. A fully armored Alex is waiting under a dead tree in the back yard of the mass of burnt and blackened timbers that was once a house."So, it took some time, but I managed to find out where your friend 'The Watcher' is hiding. It's an abandoned apartment in the bad side of town, surrounded by areas that you can get shot at or mugged just by walking through. You know. The old haunts," Alex says, bitterness in his voice. He pauses. "It wouldn't surprise me if there's a ton of traps around the place either. He seems like the type." Alex raises his visor and looks at you in the eye. "Do you want to tell me the full story as to why this guy wants you dead?"
>A fully armored Alex is waitingI think he knows but he wants to hear it from us. Anybody wants to try their hand at spinning the nuke incident?
>>2044168"Us dead, apparently. It doesn't really matter, i tried to talk to him and almost got killed for the effort. He's gotta go. Do we need to cover you in blankets to not draw attention?"Since no one wants to step up and diplomance, here i go.
>>2044168Alright, you deserve to know the truth.You heard Harmont about right? I was at Harmout a few days ago exploring and trying to reach the center when a leaf who was a gifted attacked me. He persisted in chasing me despite my attempts to shake him off. He had a energy shield that would react very explosively when a energy projectile interacts with it. I only knew of the fact when I shot him with a BFG and then you know what happened.This is where the watcher comes in. The watcher was in Harmont as well doing god knows what and he got caught in the blast. He promised to get revenge even though he revived soon afterwards and didn't seem to affected by it. Did I mention I was a gifted? I died in the blast as well but only because of my gifted powers was I able to survive.
>>2044168>>2044449I really didn't mean for the whole thing to happen. I am really sorry about this, Alex.
>>2044372>>2044449Which one, because the outcome is going to be dramatically different.
>>2044472And tie broken. Response in progress.
>>2044491OP that all was me, you can see by the ID. I was just adding on.
>>2044503Good catch.Well gents, this all boils down to which approach you wanted to try, honest or not. I just need a tiebreaker, I'm not comfortable making this decision for you.
>>2044536you could give it 20 or 30 minutes and roll a 1d2 if no one votes in that time.Can't complain if they don't make such a big window.
>>2044536We aint got that kind of time!>>2044372This
>>2044634"It does matter," Alex insists. "You're asking me to help you kill someone. I don't doubt he's got to go, but I think I deserve to know the whole truth."
lel, shadowrunners wannabes, please do your thing.
>>2044536voting for honestit was mostly leafs fault tho
>>2044665"Hey hey whoa, there buddy! I distinctly remember a basement full of bodies that YOU killed all by your lonesome. Have the cops kicked in your door? No? I think I've earned some trust, so trust me on this one this guys a menace."
>>2044665"You know what? It'll take me a bit longer, but I think I can find him on my own, thanks."Do NOT fuck this up anons! Do NOT tell him anything!
>>2044665"hes a whiny baby thats mad at me cause he almost died before i even met him. his pride is wounded or some retarded shit. if you dont want to go fight someone that wants to kill you then i can handle it alone. youve done enough just finding him for me."good think he already gave us the general area.
>>2044690He didn't ask us for help with any of those though. We don't earn trust just by not snitching on him, especially when we have no evidence.>>2044701no
>>2044665Voting honest(mostly)The best lies are close to the truth. What if he already knows what happened somehow?
>>2044665Voting for that 100% honesty.
>>2044708So you are saying you refuse to not fuck this up?You are going to force us to face two, maybe even three gifted at the same time. The end of our quest is all but certain.
>>2044690"You were with me, you wanted in on it... or so you said. What have we done to help anyone since that night?">>2044707"I've got no problem with fighting, I just want to know what I'm fighting for.">>2044711>>2044676>>2044449"Why the hell didn't you just tell me that? Why didn't you tell me you were a gifted right away? Do I even need to say that I'm one too? If you know what to look for, it's pretty obvious," Alex says, raising his voice in exasperation. "What are you playing at, here?"
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>2044753Well anons, you did it, you doomed us.We are a dead man walking.Rolling to recover this fiasco.Don't expect me to leave just because you want to watch the world burn though. The room was right, even if you leave the thread you never leave the thread.
>>2044753just leave and head for the watcher, we've spent enough time fucking around
>>2044741stop>>2044753I was a little paranoid. Maybe more than a little paranoid. Didn't do much good, as I ended up getting kidnapped by those mafia guys anyway. Sorry.While I'm being honest, another gifted, the Quester, told me something big is gonna happen after 100 days have passed, so we have like 70 left.What do you look for to identify a gifted, by the way? Do you know any others?
>>2044753Well, I am not sure if I could trust you.The last time someone knew of my powers, he tried to blackmail me and make me work for the don. I was forced to take them down because of it. I just want to be mostly left alone and maybe do a few good deeds here and there.
>>2044766>>2044777Alex nods."All right, that makes more sense. You should've told me though, we could've compared notes on what the hell happened to us..." he stops. "A hundred days? Did he say anything about what it was? Oh..." Alex pats a bag at his belt. "I just used a spell scroll that was a powerful divination. I used it to trace anyone with a power... well, like mine." Alex frowns. "I saw you right along with the Watcher. I knew then what exactly you were, but I wanted to give you a chance to come clean." Alex sighs. "Which I am profoundly grateful that you did. With all the weirdness going on, I'd much rather have an ally than another enemy." He pauses."I... You met him too, right? The Smiling Man. He's the one that gave you your power?"
>>2044817Good thing we came clean
>>2044817Yep. I'm the Gamer. Can draw on video games I've played for items and powers. You?>>2044760I TOLD YOU BRO. I TOLD YOU COMING CLEAN WAS THE RIGHT MOVE MR SHADOWRUNS.
>>2044841No, very BAD thing we came clean, this can only lead to our demise.>>2044817This doesn't seem like something we would be able to hide at this fucking point.Go ahead and confirm.
>>2044851NO IT WASN'T IT WAS THE WORST POSSIBLE THING WE COULD HAVE DONE.HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT
Well went better then I expected honestly.>>2044817Yes, I met him. What are your powers exactly, I have a good idea but I would like hear it from you.
>>2044852>>2044859Seriously you're still like this? If he already knew, how could us coming clean possibly be a bad thing? He knew! He already knew! He didn't need us to confirm it, he just wanted to see if we would lie to him. I don't understand how you think lying would be better. How can you not see that it would have only hurt us to lie?
>>2044871I DON'T think lying would be better. We have only lied to him one time, when we first met him.What I KNOW would be better is telling him nothing! We don't HAVE to lie! We could just not answer.
>>2044852>>2044851"I guess if I've got a title it's just the Knight? It's as good as any," Alex smiles. "I'm a giant tabletop nerd... I've lost count of the characters I've made and played through just as many campaigns and games. Now I can draw on any of them, summon their gear or emulate their abilities." He frowns. "Of course, once I do that, I can't do it again. So I've got to be careful what I use." He looks over to you. "I think whoever was behind North Korea could do the same thing with books. That thing that attacked was the Shrike, an insanely powerful being from the Hyperion books. The Watcher it sounds, does the same thing with movies."Alex frowns."The Smiling Man seems to have granted... similar powers to way different people. You seem content just to chill, I just want to help however I can... someone attacked an entire country, and who knows what your Leaf or Watcher are doing."
>>2044880welp, lets get going. >>2044871this woulldn't have been an issue at all if you hadn't pushed to get alex involved in tracking or at least not telling him we we had a fight with the watcher. We could have just stopped or pushed that we were rich and bought some magic shit from people for huge money wads to explain his spell pinging us by the by.
>>2044873Or we could tell him something he already knows to build trust? Once again, he already knew what we told him. Us telling him did not give him new information.>>2044880Leaf's dead, I think. He must have been the North Korean guy, Smiley revealed to me afterwards that he had been wearing a Holtzman Shield from Dune. Sounds like the book tributer. I know there's at least one more, some woman who I'll bet can draw from comic books. She kinda thinks I'm responsible for Harmont right now, which is only like 2% true.>>2044893You guys keep saying it's a big issue, but I'm just not seeing it. We're not the actively malevolent kind of guy Alex dislikes, we just fuck up badly.
>>2044905Alex nods. "Well that's something we can stop worrying about then. I can think of some pretty crazy things from books I've read that I wouldn't want to be facing anytime soon.">>2044893Alex nods. "I guess we can compare notes more later. But if that Quester guy is right about the hundred days, we might want to figure out what's going on sooner than later. So do you have a plan of attack for this guy?"
>>2044880"Right now I am a little more worried about the man who attacked me.">>2044893Finally! Another sane man!
>>2044921Last time I tried busting down his door, and he trapped me in room 1408. So this time, if I can snipe him it would be ideal. If he's somewhere abandoned I'll even be willing to bombard him with explosives, if I get lucky enough with my power to get something capable of that. On the plus side, everything he's taken from movies has also been the title of the movie, so maybe that's a limit to his power?
>>2044947Alex shrugs. "Beats me. The building he's in is abandoned, so so long as it doesn't spillover to the surrounding area I'm fine with just blowing him up before he notices where we are."
>>2044905Or we don't ask him for help in the first place and he never finds out? We were able to find the Watcher on our own once, far from impossible to do it again.We could even have bluffed like >>2044893 said.>She kinda thinks I'm responsible for Harmont right now, which is only like 2% true.STOP VOLUNTEERING INFORMATION, YOU'RE MAKING IT WORSE.>>2044921"Kill him instantly, either explosives, or any weapon that could get through a reinforced magic wall. Last time I gave him even the slightest warning, an entire hotel disappeared. I don't intend to make that mistake this time."Notice how I use information, I only give small stuff that is harmless to know, when it is important that someone else knows.
>>2044959Alright, I'll try to get a good shot with a sniper rifle first. If I can't get one or miss, you got a scroll of meteor swarm or equivalent? I can try to get explosives, but it's highly unlikely I'll be successful.>>2044961Or I could keep volunteering info so that he has a more accurate idea of the situation and can cooperate more efficiently with us? He's not going to backstab us, he's a good person. You keep saying I'm making it worse. What exactly do you mean by it?
>>2044978We got the thermal detonaters and Spartan SA3. We are fine on the explosives front.
>>2044978he wants you to use some discretion and to be careful. You're doing that white people thing where you volunteer and give the cops the go ahead on everything when you should be layering up the moment they knock on your door. Telling him a supergirl is gunning for us when it has no relevance to the watcher isn't really helping with cooperation so much as its sowing the seeds of distrust.
>>2044978He is going to decide we are a bad person because our morality is incompatible with his.Dropping little bits like "its 2% true that I am responsible for Harmont", and "We have powers" and "the watcher is dead" will only lead him to determine that a bunch of disasters were caused by us. And even if HE doesn't, he is one more person with information that could then be given to others. You don't get it, secrecy was our strongest bastion, and you fucking shattered it, and are now trying to knock over any remaining pieces of wall.Of course, its basically impossible to make things worse at this point, but considering how bad you were able to make things in just a few short posts, I'm not certain you couldn't make it happenAlso, don't bother with a sniper when we have the BFG.
>>2044990Nice memory! Hard to keep track of all our shit sometimes!>>2044994I'm thinking if she shows up and is spouting out shit like "this guy nuked harmont y u help him" Alex will then be like "Oh this is the girl you told me about" rather than "Wtf dude you never mentioned this explain now"I absolutely disagree with you on it sowing the seeds of distrust. It's doing the exact opposite, we're trusting him with this information, and he'll almost definitely reciprocate, based on his behavior up until now. We're also nipping a potential problem like the above situation in the bud.>>2045006We still have our secrecy. Alex is very secretive himself, he isn't going to go around blabbing. He also won't decide we're a bad person from your examples, there's an obvious difference between mistakes and intentional acts.
>>2045021BFG-ing leaf was an intentional act. Summoning the plague was an intentional act. Killing an entire hotel and obliterating all of the people inside was an intentional act.>We're also nipping a potential problem like the above situation in the bud.Its funny that you say that when you are literally causing all of the future problems we will ever have every time you post.>"Wtf dude you never mentioned this explain now"Not like we couldn't explain it right then if it came to that. More importantly, why the hell would we bring Alex along in the first place?>We still have our secrecy.As long as someone we aren't planning to kill knows, no we don't.
>>2045066>BFGing LeadTechnically he did shoot first.>Summoning the plagueWe wanted it in a bottle. Spreading it was accidental.>Killing the entire hotelPretty sure we were just trying to survive, and didn't know the entire hotel was a manifestation of Watcher's power.>I'm causing all our future problemsk, because the whole jeweler and mafia situation never happenedWhat if supergirl has a gifted finder ability and seeks Alex out independently and gives her side of the story first? That would really sow seeds of distrust, he'd wonder why we hadn't told him.please stop trying to make this the game where we do nothing but sit alone in our warehouse and use our powers, it sucks for other people to read and it sucks for the QM to write
>>2044959Well its settled then, I will bring a few explosives and blow him up. Let's meet up tomorrow morning. When our powers have recharged.
>>2045107Alex blinks. "We're not going tonight? I can't cast this spell again, if he moves we're kinda screwed." Alex frowns. "Then again I guess he's got no reason to. Your call."
>>2045112Any reason not to go tonight? We still have most of our powers, we used magic and charizard to escape the room. We've got the guns and explosive we need. Plus if he moves we're screwed.Let's just do it right now.
>>2045112yeah, go now>>2045090some people want to play smart as opposed to being a goody goody with max charisma and no plans
>>2045090>k, because the whole jeweler and mafia situation never happenedI said "future problems" not "previous problems".>Pretty sure we were just trying to survive, and didn't knowThe point is that all of these disasters are caused by things we intended to do. Moreover, the leaf in particular we shot because we wanted the shiny, he wasn't even threatening us. Alex's morality isn't compatible with ours.>What if supergirl has a gifted finder ability and seeks Alex out independently and gives her side of the story first?Same thing, basically, we reveal only what is necessary, that being that the leaf was wearing a nuclear weapon we had no way of knowing about. Only this time she also has to convince Alex that we have powers, because he has no reason to believe that in this scenario.>please stop trying to make this the game where we do nothing but sit alone in our warehouse and use our powerFuck you, I want a game where we go on fucking adventures without having to worry about everyone and their mother out to get us at all times, I was the one who suggested we go to harmont. How is that sitting alone in a warehouse. I want a game where we have the ability to revel in our power, where we have the ability to say "Fuck it all, I'm going to take over the criminal underworld today" and then go "You who is a dick? ISIS. I think I'll go and shit all over their largest base just because I can" the next day, and the day after that a fucking superhero.You are the one who is taking all of the fun out of this quest.
>>2045112alright let's go tonight then. let pick up our power amour before that.
>>2045112Go now. We have our explosives right? Also, when we attack, don't stop. At all. Just keep attacking until he reveals his inevitable next countermeasure.
>>2045128Are you taking Alex to your warehouse to pick it up?
>>2045142no we will meet at the abandoned area
>>2045128I like the way you think. Will we need training to use the power armor? Are you sure the battle mech wouldn't be better?>>2045142Hmmm, no, we need him to stick around so he can be sure that the watcher doesn't try to run.
>>2045121That's not even smart, it's just boring.>>2045122No, the Leaf started shooting at us first. It was legit self defense.Alex has no reason to believe we have powers until he uses the scroll he just used to check, you mean. And at that point he's on suergirls side.Finally, no you don't want that. You want a game where there are no other gifted and we have nothing to worry about, and unfortunately for you this isn't it.>>2045142Seconding >>2045144
>>2045156battlemechs... overkill, if we could pop that sucker out of nowhere certainly but people are going to notice it the moment the door opens. Also the powerarmor should be fine. only 3 and probably 4 need training.2s powerarmor was easy to use, just equip.>>2045162being smart isn't smart?You Want to max charisma, 100% truth and get a harem and bull doze through everything?jesus christ anon, what the hell
>>2045156Nah Battle mech is too big. He will see it a mile away. Power armour we can at least sneak around it. The other Alex runs around in plate armour and noone cares too much.
>>2045162No, I want a game where there are challenges we can face on our own terms. A game where we actually use all of our advantages, like fucking secrecy. If there are surprises along the way that's fine, the watcher himself is a perfect example, he found out all on his own, has a grudge based on the consequences of our own actions and presents a fun challenge to beat. Handing over all of our secrets to another gifted so that everybody and their grandmother is ready for us at all times is not fun.You are the one who wants nofungame.>That's not even smart, it's just boring.Implying that keeping secrets isn't fucking smart. Implying that revealing secrets is fun.Protip; keeping secrets is fun. Revealing secrets for no reason is not smart
>>2045144>>2045156You settle on meeting place, retrieve your armor, and meet Alex in an alley a block down from the target. When you get there, you think you might be early at first... Then Alex appears from thin air, like a million drops of water coalescing together."Ring of Invisibility," he says. "It's how I can move around with no one noticing the person in armor. You brought everything you'll need?""Full up, ready to rock," you say, accessing your BFG from the digital inventory. Alex nods in approval."Advanced Power Armor... nice. I prefer the T-51b though.""Is it because it looks more like a knight?" you asks. Alex opens his mouth, then closes it."...maybe. Anyway, what's our plan, you want to just shoot the building with your big guns and see what happens? I go invisible and move to intercept whatever comes out?"
>>2045237"Hmm, it would make things much easier if we had a way to know his exact location in the building. Have any access to super senses? I might be able to cook something up if not""Probably best if you hang back, and be ready to attack if he runs away. I'll handle anything he tries to throw at me and call out if I am overwhelmed."
>>2045237Well could you plant this thermal detonators at the building undetected? I will remote detonate it and bring down the whole block at one go. I will BFG every that comes out afterwards.
>>2045252>>2045237This reminds me, do we know how many shots of BFG we are holding?
>>2045254You've got another 2 fully charged shot.>>2045252"Yeah, I can do that. Ring and all.">>2045248"If I had something of his, there's a spell I could try. Do you have anything he's owned?"
>>2045237Could you plant these explosives actually? That'll be our first strike, afterwards we'll go with your plan. >>2045200You keep saying I reveal secrets for bo reason; you don't seem to understand that revealing secrets to the right person is how you build up trust. It's the reason Alex is helping us kill the Watcher right now. Some secrets are good to keep forever, like the plague thing. Others can be strategically given to the right people, as long as you don't have some weird secrets fetish clouding your judgement.
>>2045269We have the chip from that T-800 we hacked, right?Hand it over.
>>2045269Oh well, lets use the Spartan sa3 first instead of the BFG.>>2045269Gib him the T-800 junk.
>>2045279>She kinda thinks I'm responsible for Harmont right now, which is only like 2% true.>Smiley revealed to me afterwards that he had been wearing a Holtzman Shield from Dune.>Yep. I'm the Gamer. Can draw on video games I've played> the Quester (Revealing the title)Literally no possible reason to give any of this information at all. Unless you have a disclosure fetish.
>>2045289>>2045282When you go for the chip, you find it's gone.
>>2045269"Dibs on any surviving loot, btw"
>>2045298Shit. Where were we keeping it? He may know we're coming.Hand over the hellraiser box. Make sure alex knows not to open it. Warn him the watcher may have realized we are coming.
>>2045297Literally already explained why I volunteered each of these pieces of info. If you're going to make me repeat myself over and over I'm not going to bother. >>2045298I thought I did, but guess not. Might as well go with what we have now.
>>2045298da fuq, just plant the bombs then>>2045307actually, how do we actually know the puzzle box is dangerous?
>>2045314Its possible the Hellraiser box may have been repurposed for less malevolent uses, but I'm not taking any chances in that regard.>>2045309No you didn't. You didn't give any reason, and there couldn't have been for those pieces of information in particular.
>>2045325Fine I'll repeat myself just for you. Gotta sleep now though. Tomorrow morning.
>>2045307"Oh, shit, I watched this movie. Yeah man, I ain't solving that shit. OK. Let's try the spell..." Axel takes the cube with one hand and makes passes in the air with his other, chanting soft words. His eyes glow for a moment, then he looks to you."He's in the top floor of the building. Guess he styles himself the end boss or something."
>>2045340Let bring him down back to earth. Proceed with the bomb plan.
>>2045350Unfortunately we've got to stop here for the night then. I'm opening tomorrow at around the usual time with the attack, so if you have any last minute planning, you've got some time.Thanks for playing!
>>2045340Dungeon bypass go!BFG straight at the top, followed by bombing the fuck out the remains.
>>2045355>>2045356Seconded.Release charizard, cast rez on all three of us.Setup bombs, fire at roof then detonate bombs.Also, ask Alex if he has any spare shielding buffs or whatever first - if we trust him enough to cast something on us that is.
>>2045455Yeah casting buffs before starting the fight is a good idea.
>>2045297Ok here we go>She kinda thinks I'm responsible for Harmont right now, which is only like 2% true.>Smiley revealed to me afterwards that he had been wearing a Holtzman Shield from Dune.These two I explained in this post: >>2045021middle section>Yep. I'm the Gamer. Can draw on video games I've played> the Quester (Revealing the title)These two I guess I didn't explain, so I'll do it now. Both of them were the same as every other piece of info we volunteered, serving to build additional trust between us and Alex. For revealing our title, I expected him to share his as well, which he did. Knowing each others abilities will help us cooperate more effectively.As for revealing the Quester's title, I didn't even think that was a big deal. It's hardly a secret, Quester straight up told us the moment we met him. He doesn't have any reason to treat us specially, he probably tells everyone. If you want a way it benefits us, I'm not sure what his power lets him draw from, and now that Alex knows his title maybe he has some idea.You may not like my reasons, or you may not think that what we got in exchange for this info was worth it, but it's dishonest to say that there's no reason to do what we did.From the way Alex is going full cooperation with us to kill a guy he's never met, on nothing more than our say-so that he's bad, I'd say it's been far more than worth it. You might think we could have gotten the same result by withholding essentials and bluffing/lying, but we almost got badly burned for that already. Back when we first revealed to Alex we knew he was the Knight, and lied that he had told us his identity on the spot, only a nat 100 saved us from being caught. I don't think we'll get another stroke of luck like that.What he did with the scrying and the questions earlier was specifically to catch players like you, and it would have worked. We can use your way when dealing with shady people like Quester and other unknowns, but I'd say my way is proven to be the right choice for Alex.
>>2045833Ok here we go.> These two I explained in this post: >>2045021That only explains why we would talk about harmont at all, it does not explain why we should mention that the flying girl thinks we are responsible, nor does it explain why we should tell Alex the exact mechanics of what caused the explosion. There is no reason that we need to tell him either of these pieces of information.>For revealing our title, I expected him to share his as well, You mean the title that we already knew?>He doesn't have any reason to treat us specially,I would argue that he definitely treated us differently from the Leaf, for example. as for reasons, I'll get to that.> I'm not sure what his power lets him draw from, and now that Alex knows his title maybe he has some idea.He draws power from quest threads like this one, almost certainly. It would explain how he has foreknowledge of things that are going to happen in this Quest. It would also provide a really good reason for him to treat us differently as we are the primary subject of a Quest thread.Again, what I am getting at here is that we have no reason to share this information. Why do we need to say the title of the gifted who told us of our 100 day time limit, when we could give the same information without having to reveal the title?>Back when we first revealed to Alex we knew he was the Knight, and lied that he had told us his identity on the spot, only a nat 100 saved us from being caught.You are misremembering that event. What happened was that we called him on his cell phone without him ever giving it to us. Hardly damning, we would only have had to explain that we didn't trust him and hacked his phone. We learned he was the knight because we met him while he was out and about being the knight.>What he did with the scrying and the questions earlier was specifically to catch players like you, and it would have workedYou mean that all we would have had to do was NOT ask him to look for the Watcher? Shocker. If he figured out on his own, what does he care except to wonder why kept it secret? If he figured out because flying girl told him to check, he'd still ask us about what happened, and we could explain at that point.
>>2046213>That only explains why we would talk about harmont at all, it does not explain why we should mention that the flying girl thinks we are responsible, nor does it explain why we should tell Alex the exact mechanics of what caused the explosion. There is no reason that we need to tell him either of these pieces of information.Actually it does. Reread the first line.>You mean the title that we already knew?And the details of his power.>I would argue that he definitely treated us differently from the Leaf, for example. as for reasons, I'll get to that.He never even met the Leaf!>Again, what I am getting at here is that we have no reason to share this information. Why do we need to say the title of the gifted who told us of our 100 day time limit, when we could give the same information without having to reveal the title?What does it even matter if we tell him the Questers title or not? Again, he told us as soon as he met us. Pretty liberal with that info.>We learned he was the knight because we met him while he was out and about being the knight.My point was he never gave us any personal details as the Knight, we hacked his phone to get those and then lied about it, and would have gotten caught if not for the nat 100.>We would only have had to explain that we didn't trust him and hacked his phone. Somehow, I think this wouldn't be as simple as you just implied, for the same reason some anons want to kill supergirl because she saw our face. Alex is better than those anons, so I don't think he would have killed us, but I don't think he ever would have trusted or teamed up with us the way he's doing now.>If he figured out because flying girl told him to check, he'd still ask us about what happened, and we could explain at that point.If we explained at that point, do you think he would trust us like he does now? After it was revealed by supergirl that we had been hiding our gifted status and actions from him, while gladly hearing about what he did in costume. I'm absolutely sure he wouldn't.
>>2046557>Actually it does. Reread the first line.>I'm thinking if she shows up and is spouting out shit like "this guy nuked harmont y u help him" Alex will then be like "Oh this is the girl you told me about" rather than "Wtf dude you never mentioned this explain now"Except the same result occurs without mentioning flying girl at all. "Hold up, he already explained to me that it wasn't his fault, by the way who are you?" We also don't need to explain the exact mechanisms behind the explosion as long as he already knows its not our fault.>And the details of his power.Which we had a pretty good idea of already.>He never even met the Leaf!Sure had quite a lot of info to dump on him, as well as graffiti-ing that everything was his fault in a place where anyone could see it. Seems to me like the Quester maybe has a grudge.>we hacked his phone to get those and then lied about it, and would have gotten caught if not for the nat 100.It doesn't hurt us at all if he finds things out like that. We can easily talk things out if he catches us in a lie (only significant lie we ever told him). Again, if we are doing our secrecy thing correctly, we should never have to lie in the first place because people won't be asking questions until the information becomes directly pertinent.>Somehow, I think this wouldn't be as simple as you just implied, for the same reason some anons want to kill supergirl because she saw our face.We want to kill flying girl because she's a gifted with a grudge against us who will recognize us when she sees us. Alex doesn't have a grudge against us so that wouldn't be a problem.>Alex is better than those anons, so I don't think he would have killed us.For the same reason we wouldn't need to kill him.>If we explained at that point, do you think he would trust us like he does now?Maybe not.

Pretty liberal with that info.Seems to me like your reasons boil down to "We told him some information, therefore we should tell him more information." How is that not a fetish for disclosure?Now, do I think we could have kept everything hidden forever? Obviously not. Especially if we were going to work directly with him on patrol, it would have come out sooner or later, but that isn't reason for us to just dump everything we know on him on the basis of "muh trust". Other things can just stay secret, or are simply not relevant.
>>2045356>>2045455>>2045561"Here, this might help," Alex says, casting Invisibility onto you. You fade from sight in an instant, much as Alex does when he slips on his ring. "Keep in mind, it'll go away when you attack, but it's good for getting the drop on people.""Well that's what we need right now," you nod. "Let's do this."Alex slips into the first floor with the thermal detonators as you unleash your Pokemon and have it circle the building in case the Watcher attempts to jump. Once Alex is back at your side, you take careful aim and fire a BFG shot at the roof and signal Charizard, gouts of fire blasting the sides of the building as the top floor has a crater blown into it by your gun."Now!" you shout, and Alex hits the detonator, a devastating chain of explosions ripping through the first floor of the apartment as the structure groans dangerously, flames already spreading rapidly.Roll a d100

Alex doesn't have a grudge against us so that wouldn't be a problem.You're missing the point. Look at it from Alex's perspective. He goes out as a vigilante and murders a bunch of criminals. He absolutely does not want to have this linked to his normal life. One day someone calls him at work on his personal phone, links him to the Knight persona, and lies about how he got that info. You honestly don't think he'd be paranoid of us at that point? What if we were Alex and that had happened to us? Someone calls us out of nowhere, says they know we're responsible for the Green Plague, and lies that we admitted it to them. How much do you wanna bet anons would vote to hunt down whoever that was and make sure they never talk?>Why exactly do we need him to trust us again?Because having another gifted working with us is a massive advantage?

How is that not a fetish for disclosure?I don't think you're honestly trying to understand where I'm coming from here, just looking for points to disagree with.You seem to think I want to tell him everything ever.

>>2047166>What I mean is that nothing bad would have happened if the roll fucking failed, except for us having to admit we hacked the phone.Well, I disagree with that. I think Alex never would have trusted us if that had happened.>I don't think it matters if they resent us for not disclosing.I don't want the people we're fighting alongside to resent us, especially if those fights put our lives on the line. It does matter, the more they resent us, the less they're willing to do for us.>If that someone was someone who already said they liked what we were doing, I think there would be less support for killing him then if it was just some random person, just like it would be for Alex.There still would be support for it though.>No, but "the guy went nuclear explosion when I shot him." Is plenty of explanation without going into the mechanics therein.What's bad about going into the mechanics? It doesn't hurt us in any way, and saying "he went nuclear boom when I shot him" is hard to believe, and makes us look dumb.>Why would he? We certainly don't.I do. You don't, but you seem to hate all human interaction, which is irregular.>Sure, but the only one whose actions were completely revealed like that were Leaf's. That doesn't smack to you of a grudge?Not when we were in Harmont, filled with the Leaf's fuckups. It was more setting exposition.>One that we could have gotten without going full infodump on him.We didn't go full infodump. No plague, no mafia dealings, no stupid moments.You complain I give him extra info, but I'm just being cautious. I want to give him our version of events now, before he hears a version that makes us look bad from someone like supergirl and that colors his perception of us. You want to be cautious by not getting this close to him in the first place, but it's too late for that.>>2047271See if you can find anything other than Alex nearby with the scouter.
>>2047271Please a Mortal Combat 3 if we haven't already.
>>2047273>>2047287Your Pokemon roasts the rubble as you Scouter the area.There is still a power signature under the rubble... and something else. Some form of bizzare life.
>>2047299It was night when we killed the hotel, and afternoon when Alex called, so our emulations should be full right now.I've got an ace in the hole for that anyway.Have you ever heard of a little game called Fatal Frame?>>2047271Speaking of, Tribute Fatal Frame 5
>>2047334I mean add Mortal Kombat 3>>2047343Shoot power signature with a sa3 rocket
>>2047343A pile of rubble? Or does it have a basement>Still waiting for my Wizard of Moment
>>2047323>>2047350Are you two dickheads gonna conTRIBUTE or keep up your moral circlejerk conversation?>>2047362>Wizard of Oz moment is what I meant.
>>2047343Alright gents, Emulate both KOTOR II and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Proceed to drain the life out of the power signature, backed by the full power of the dark side.>>2047323>There still would be support for it though.Not enough to kill the guy over.>I think Alex never would have trusted us if that had happened.Who cares if Alex trusts us? I care if he wants to kill us.> It does matter, the more they resent us, the less they're willing to do for us.It really doesn't matter. And on top of that, resentment can be worked out. Unlike murderment.>What's bad about going into the mechanics?It is ALWAYS bad to go into unnecessary details.>saying "he went nuclear boom when I shot him" is hard to believe, and makes us look dumb.which is bad why?> you seem to hate all human interaction, which is irregular.I hate sharing information we don't have to. Which is completely normal. I am the one who suggested we have a vignette for our night out with Alex to get to know him better. >>2047390>Whynotboth.jpg
>>2047350A strangely ornate flashlight appears in your hand.>>2047362Both are under the rubble, under the piles.>>2047358You fire another rocket and a satisfying explosion fills your ears, but nothing else happens.>>2047401Roll a d100.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>2047463
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>2047463Oh shit, that's the flashlight from the Ayane Route. It'll freeze ghosts for short periods of time. Definitely useful even if it isn't what I am looking for.
>>2047401>Inbadtaste.gifBecause for 2 1/2 days you two have been arguing your points to no conclusive end and none of the rest of us anons really give a shit anyways. Your both try to preach each side of the same coin. If it were me smiley had visited I'd be doing things waaayyy different, as I'm sure most if us would...TL:DR: nobody fucking cares
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>2047390I feel like I'm managing to do both.>>2047401>Not enough to kill the guy over.Yeah, but we wouldn't have worked as closely with him as we might have do to thread opinion. We might not have worked with him at all, no matter how eager he seemed, because he already lied to us once and we thought he couldn't be trusted. Just like Alex might not have worked with us if we had been caught.>Who cares if Alex trusts us? I care if he wants to kill us.I care, because I want a teammate to help out with the shit that's gonna go down.>It really doesn't matter. And on top of that, resentment can be worked out. Unlike murderment.I agree with you on the second point, which is why I don't want to kill supergirl. But, why work something out when you can volunteer a bit of info early on and avoid the problem altogether?>It is ALWAYS bad to go into unnecessary details.I disagree.>which is bad why?Makes us less trustworthy. The more he trusts us, the more he'll do for us. If we look dumb or shifty, he'll second guess us and do things his own way, which will mess up our plans.>>2047463
Can the THE FORCE destroy ghosts or their soul? We still need to prevent his revival if it doesn't.
>>2047525Well if people hadn't sent Alex off with our freeze ray I'm sure he'd have a spiritual holding/banishment spell since the guy stinks of paladin to me
>>2047525Hmm, its possible, but unlikely. Starkiller was able to kill Obi-Wan's force ghost in the extended Sith DLC. We do have a blessed bullets gun and the Spirit Stone flashlight though. >>2047504>Yeah, but we wouldn't have worked as closely with him as we might have do to thread opinion. We might not have worked with him at all, no matter how eager he seemed, because he already lied to us once and we thought he couldn't be trusted. Just like Alex might not have worked with us if we had been caught.So? Working with Alex was ill advised to begin with.>I care, because I want a teammate to help out with the shit that's gonna go down.When shit starts going down, chances are that Alex will work with us regardless. To stop whatever it is that's coming.>I agree with you on the second point, which is why I don't want to kill supergirl.Flying girl doesn't resent us, she wants to kill us. We cannot reason with her.>why work something out when you can volunteer a bit of info early on and avoid the problem altogether?Because when you volunteer information you make worse problems than if you had just withheld in the first place.>If we look dumb or shifty, he'll second guess us and do things his own way, which will mess up our plans.If our plans are dependent on others doing what we tell them to, they are bad plans.>>2047488>neitherofusgivesashit.png
>>2047470>>2047475>>2047504You reach out with your power... UNLIMITED POOOWEEEEER and attempt to suck the life from the power signature in the ruins. It works too well, the dark side flowing through you, corrupting your unprepared flesh, causing your hair to go white and you skin to grow blotchy and blemished even as your eyes turn yellow. The essence of the Watcher flows into you, almost eagerly, and when it ends, the only thing you detect in the ruins is the strange lifeform."All right, the fire is p- whoa, what the hell? What the hell happened to you, man?" you hear Alex's voice nearby as you turn.
>>2047584"Well, I emulated star wars, and got a little too enthusiastic. Do you have a way to ensure there are no ghosts or perform exorcisms? The watcher may have a way of returning as a ghost. Oh, he also summoned something we are going to have to finish off."btw, how can Alex see our face? We are in the power armor, right?
>>2047577>So? Working with Alex was ill advised to begin with.Without him we'd still be looking for the Watcher.>When shit starts going down, chances are that Alex will work with us regardless. To stop whatever it is that's coming.Far more likely that we'd just work separately.>Flying girl doesn't resent us, she wants to kill us. We cannot reason with her.If she was truly impossible to reason with, she wouldn't have flown away back in Harmont.>Because when you volunteer information you make worse problems than if you had just withheld in the first place.Or you clear up current problems and prevent future ones. Depends on the info you share.>If our plans are dependent on others doing what we tell them to, they are bad plans.Lol, are you serious? I guess literally every battle strategy involving any number of subordinates in history has been a bad plan. Better go tell those 5 star generals that they're all retards, and should be doing everything themselves. Like cmon dude.>>2047584"Fuck dude, I tried life drain from a star wars game and I'm apparently Palpatine now. Maybe I can clear this up."Try casting refresh on ourselves.
>>2047598Of course you're wearing your power armor. Alex never saw your face and never made a comment, I don't know what you're talking about. These aren't the posts you're looking for."I've got means of fucking up ghosts, sure," Alex nods. "Do you need me to find him too? I can just spam Detect Evil around until he pings.">>2047603You are out of mana, currently.
>>2047603>Without him we'd still be looking for the Watcher.We've proven that we have the ability to find the watcher already, we could find him again.>Far more likely that we'd just work separately.Not a problem if he is working toward the same goal.>If she was truly impossible to reason with, she wouldn't have flown away back in Harmont.She flew away because she was injured and uncertain of her chances against us, not because she wasn't absolutely certain about killing us.>Lol, are you serious? I guess literally every battle strategy involving any number of subordinates in history has been a bad plan. Better go tell those 5 star generals that they're all retards, and should be doing everything themselves. Like cmon dude.We aren't a general, and other powered individuals are not our subordinates or armies.We are a gifted, and so are the others. We have to be able to do things on our own. That might not be the case if our moral alignments were nearly the same, but they are not.>>2047584Also yes, try casting refresh.
>>2047638I think we should take care of whatever he summoned, I'm pretty sure if he does have a ghost, he's possessing me right now.
>>2047660>>2047638"I'm not sure if he IS a ghost right now, that may have been a one time deal, but lets get a quick scan on our surroundings, especially me, because I just life drained him and he could have taken that as an oppurtunity.""Also, there is something he summoned under the rubble, be ready in case it lashes out."
>>2047682>>2047660Your words prove prophetic as two tendrils of goo whip out from under the rubble and wrap themselves around your legs, causing you to fall to the ground and be dragged towards one of the bigger piles. You'll reach it in a few seconds, so you'd better think fast!
>>2047701take out our lightsaber and cut all the tendrils in one quick swipe.
>>2047654>We've proven that we have the ability to find the watcher already, we could find him again.We got a lucky roll. We would have found him again eventually, but how many assassins would we have to deal with between now and then? This way was much more efficient.>Not a problem if he is working toward the same goal.Disagree. We accomplish more pooling resources and cooperating than working separately and doing the same thing twice.>She flew away because she was injured and uncertain of her chances against us, not because she wasn't absolutely certain about killing us.You seem to really know everything about this person we shared 3 sentences with.>We aren't a general, and other powered individuals are not our subordinates or armies.You didn't like that analogy? Here's another. Better tell some famous counterstrike team that they're garbage and should be winning 1v5.We obviously can do things on our own. We probably could have beaten the Watcher on our own. Then again, we could have lost. If we won, it would have taken longer, more effort, more expenditures of our power and losses of our tribute items. With Alex, we lose almost nothing. You're pushing Alex to a moral white knight extreme here. Will he agree with everything we do? No. Do we need to take him along for everything we do? Also no. We can say thanks buddy after this, and part ways until the next time one of us needs the other. Or if we want, we can cooperate on a task we both want to do.>>2047701Is that the Thing? Flametongue it. Flametongue it dead.Oh shit we're out of mana.Life drain it?
>>2047701Are our emulations still up? Force Dominate the goo if so.If not, see if Charizard can burn the goo tendrils.
>>2047723>>2047720You quickly find no mind to dominate, but your saber slices off the tendrils in short order, ceasing your forward movement.It takes a moment for you to realize with disgust that the tendrils themselves are still alive, moving around your armor and leaving sizzling trails of scorched metal wherever they go.It's trying to find a breach in the armor.Then the rubble explodes outward and a mass of purple-pink slime lunges out to try and envelop you.Roll a d100.
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>2047756Yep, it's the Thing. How irresponsible. Didn't the Watcher know this could wipe out humanity? He's almost as bad as us!
>>2047721>We got a lucky roll. We would have found him again eventually, but how many assassins would we have to deal with between now and then?Not enough to stop us, and that is all that matters.>We accomplish more pooling resources and cooperating than working separately and doing the same thing twice.Which shouldn't be too difficult to convince Alex of when shit starts going down.>You seem to really know everything about this person we shared 3 sentences with.She gave us plenty of information to go off of, did you even read her little mini-rant?>You didn't like that analogy? Here's another. Better tell some famous counterstrike team that they're garbage and should be winning 1v5.Their plans aren't based on someone with their own plans and goals doing what someone else tells them to do in the heat of battle, their plans are based on several people who each individually know what they are doing with the same goal with a predetermined battle plan. Again, none of that applies to us.>You're pushing Alex to a moral white knight extreme hereOur first thought when we got this power was to profit from it. Alex's was to become some sort of superhero. That is extreme enough for me.
>>2047756Looks like the blob, or else the thing.See if Charizard can singe the bits of ooze that are sticking on our armor, while we fire the BFG at the source of the ooze.
>>2047799>Not enough to stop us, and that is all that matters.I disagree. I prefer not losing time or items that I don't have to.>Which shouldn't be too difficult to convince Alex of when shit starts going down.Unless we've lied to him in the past, been caught, and now he doesn't trust us anymore.>She gave us plenty of information to go off of, did you even read her little mini-rant?Yeah, she was mad because she thought we nuked Harmont. Simple to reason with her. I'll give you an example right now: "It wasn't me.">Their plans aren't based on someone with their own plans and goals doing what someone else tells them to do in the heat of battle, their plans are based on several people who each individually know what they are doing with the same goal with a predetermined battle plan. Again, none of that applies to us.Disagree again, I think the way we're cooperating with Alex now is very similar.>Our first thought when we got this power was to profit from it. Alex's was to become some sort of superhero. That is extreme enough for me.1. Not for me2. Pretty big difference between our powers. Alex seems to be purely fantasy stuff, unless he played some star wars campaigns. Much harder to sell and profit from than diamonds from minecraft.
>>2047776Acting fast, you roll out of the way just in time to be immediately swallowed by the mass of slime emerging from the rubble. Even so, your armor is smoking from the trails of the two tendrils still crawling over you... acid, maybe?Alex's invisibility fades as he lets loose a blast with the weapon he has his hands on... the cryo-gun. The slime instantly recoils from the ice, retreating from Alex and focusing on you, lashing out with a storm of pseudopods that threaten to drag you back into this thing.
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>2047837Keep retreating, cut any tendrils that get a grip on us with the saber. If we get enough distance to not get grabbed, pull out the BFG and take a shot.
>>2047834>Unless we've lied to him in the past, been caught, and now he doesn't trust us anymore.We've only ever lied to him the one time. There was never any lie to catch us in.>I prefer not losing time or items that I don't have to.We didn't lose anything but a mansion last time we dealt with assassins. Even the shield we managed to repair.>Simple to reason with her. I'll give you an example right now: "It wasn't me."We tried that one, she refused to believe us.>I think the way we're cooperating with Alex now is very similar.No, the we are cooperating with Alex is the way we should have been all along. Telling him only information that is pertinent and not making plans where him not doing something screws us over. >1. Not for meDoesn't matter if any individual person didn't have their first thought be profit, it matters what our characters first thought was. It was profit, by the way.>2. Pretty big difference between our powers. Alex seems to be purely fantasy stuff, unless he played some star wars campaigns. Much harder to sell and profit from than diamonds from minecraft.Implying you can't profit from pristine antique super armor.
>>2047756Just... You know what fuck it fire everywhere, pop on a sunfire while we're at it.>My tribute, never will I see you! Alas, the disdainment, for I needed your buildingly goodness! Op, what demon possess you?Tribute Dino Crisis 2 Tier 2. Can you see this one
>>2047837>>2047850Support, wear the cape when we are our of reach as well so our cape can immolate the tendrils.
>>2047837Looks like it is the Blob after all.Pull out our staff and focus on not getting caught. Call out to Charizard and see if he can burn the tendrils off.
>>2047850Isn't that our last shot
>>2047901Yes it is. I think the blob is definitely a worthy use though.
>>2047861>We've only ever lied to him the one time. There was never any lie to catch us in.The one lie would have been enough, if we hadn't rolled a 100. Also>lied one time>never any lie>We didn't lose anything but a mansion last time we dealt with assassins. Even the shield we managed to repair.The mansion cost millions, and we only repaired the shield because we rolled a 98. Things could have gone a lot worse. Why take unnecessary risks?>We tried that one, she refused to believe us.She had just been caught in a nuke and seen people die in front of her, and we didn't word it too eloquently. Let's try it again next time we see her, she's had some time to calm down.>No, the we are cooperating with Alex is the way we should have been all along. Telling him only information that is pertinent and not making plans where him not doing something screws us over.I guarantee you would be really mad if Alex treated us the way you want to treat him.>Doesn't matter if any individual person didn't have their first thought be profit, it matters what our characters first thought was. It was profit, by the way.The not for me was more of a "I disagree that we're morally opposed enough that we can never work together", not what you thought.>Implying you can't profit from pristine antique super armor.You can, but it's a whole lot harder to sell, especially discreetly. He wasn't about to get lucky because his local jeweler had mob ties, that doesn't exist for armor connoisseurs.>>2047901I never saw the blob, but the Thing can replicate itself onto any lifeform it touches and is a shapeshifter that can impersonate humans. If it touches us, or survives and gets to a population center, it's even worse of a scenario than our plague.
>>2047862What Tribute are you referring to? It's very possibly I missed it.>Dino Crisis Tier 2A strange cannon clatters to the ground behind you.>>2047874>>2047850You slash away the tendrils on your armor, backpedaling as fast as you can to expend the last charge of BFG 9000 ammo on the Blob. Completely immune to explosions, bullets, and blades, the bizarre energy and plasma of the BFG burst seems to prove effective against the creature and the monster shrieks in pain as the green explosion reduces a good chunk of its biomass to ash. Now only about the size of a human, it charges towards you with surprising speed. You manage to dodge mostly out of the way, but your armor is damaged further by a group of pseudopods that lash out at you as it passed.
>>2047942use our disintegration ray on it this time while trying not to get hit.
>>2047939>The one lie would have been enough, if we hadn't rolled a 100.No it wouldn't have. Especially we would have come clean on the spot. And what lie is there to catch us in? none, whatsoever.>The mansion cost millions, Chump change>we only repaired the shield because we rolled a 98. If we didn't repair it with that, we would have repaired it with something else.>Why take unnecessary risks?Because they AREN'T unnecessary. To tell someone else just so we have help is the unnecessary risk.>Let's try it again next time we see her, she's had some time to calm downYou mean when she's powered herself up and is ready for anything? When she's spent weeks thinking about how much she hates us and how she is going to get around whatever we may throw at her? That's when you want to try to reason with her?>I guarantee you would be really mad if Alex treated us the way you want to treat him.Alex DID treat us the way we would have treated him, he didn't say shit until we were getting ready to work together.>He wasn't about to get lucky because his local jeweler had mob ties, that doesn't exist for armor connoisseurs.Maybe, but its a hell of a lot easier to confirm that armor hasn't been stolen then it is precious gemstones.
>>2047942Hold the mass in place with the force while Alex freezes the remaining mass.
>>2047957>>2048004With what remains of your emulation, you hold the blob in place while Alex freezes it. Thinking fast, you fire your disintegration ray at the monster while it's immobile and do not stop until only dust remains.You are left with smoking, damaged power armor in the middle of a flaming ruin. Sirens are already audible in the distance.>Quest Paused.Unfortunately that's all the energy I have for tonight, folks. See you tomorrow!
>>2048025Good, now lets make sure we aren't being haunted right now, to kick tomorrow night off.
>>2048025Be sure to loot anything important that the watcher left behind and retrieve all our stuff before we gtfo.
>>2047942Umm the SimCity 2013 Trib, tier 2 even. I forgive you cause your awesome and much like these two anonassholes arguing against anarchy, your doing great! Love it. Best QST ever
too bad we didnt get line of sight on the watcher, could have sucked his soul out with a mortal combat emulation instead of using 2 starwars ones. So how bigs the cannon?can we actually take it or is it too big and heavy like the tank in the park?
>>2047991>No it wouldn't have. Especially we would have come clean on the spot. And what lie is there to catch us in? none, whatsoever.You're contradicting yourself here.>If we didn't repair it with that, we would have repaired it with something else.QM literally said we weren't supposed to be able to repair it, and only the 98 let us get a jury rigged version back.>Because they AREN'T unnecessary. To tell someone else just so we have help is the unnecessary risk.With my unnecessary risk we save money, time, effort, and tribute items. With your unnecessary risk we lose all of that, and have less friends. I pick mine.>You mean when she's powered herself up and is ready for anything? When she's spent weeks thinking about how much she hates us and how she is going to get around whatever we may throw at her? That's when you want to try to reason with her?Yup, because I don't think you're as good at predictions or reading people as you think you are. The way you think about Alex is proof enough of that.>Alex DID treat us the way we would have treated him, he didn't say shit until we were getting ready to work together.If that were true, he wouldn't have given us the full details on his ability.>Maybe, but its a hell of a lot easier to confirm that armor hasn't been stolen then it is precious gemstones.Doesn't make much difference when you can't sell it.>>2048025Invisibility spells Alex will save us. Thanks for running!>>2048060Please never do that tribute.
>>2048086>QM literally said we weren't supposed to be able to repair it, and only the 98 let us get a jury rigged version back.He would have changed his tune when we combined six or seven forms of repair simultaneously, or we could have just gotten a new one once we unlocked choosing our tributes.>With your unnecessary risk we lose all of that, and have less friends. I pick mine.Then you have chosen the one that ends up with us having more enemies and more resource expenditure.>Yup, because I don't think you're as good at predictions or reading people as you think you are.She as much as said that that is what she was going to do when she left. She left so that she could take us on more effectively later.>If that were true, he wouldn't have given us the full details on his ability.>If that were true, he wouldn't have given us the full details on his ability.He gave us details on his ability because he felt awkward not doing it when we dumped our ability on him.>Doesn't make much difference when you can't sell it.Except that there is this thing called the internet. SOMEBODY would have bought it.
I wonder if we could use the box to fuse the omnitool and/or the scouter
>>2048025I have just been informed I won't be getting back in time for a session tonight, so next session is pushed back to Wed. See you there!
>>2048144>He would have changed his tune when we combined six or seven forms of repair simultaneouslyPlanning on wasting how many tributes there?>Then you have chosen the one that ends up with us having more enemies and more resource expenditure.Hard to believe that when we're down one enemy, up one ally, and haven't lost any resources since Alex joined aside from BFG ammo.>She as much as said that that is what she was going to do when she left. She left so that she could take us on more effectively later.Lmao bro she never even used the word kill.>He gave us details on his ability because he felt awkward not doing it when we dumped our ability on him.So sharing that info worked, just like I intended.>Except that there is this thing called the internet. SOMEBODY would have bought it.Who's going to believe an ad for magic armor on the internet? He'd get hoaxed until word of Harmont came out, and then he'd get exactly the type of attention he wanted to avoid. He didn't have any good options for pawning his stuff.
>>2050964>Planning on wasting how many tributes there?0, once you consider that tributes are reusable.>Hard to believe that when we're down one enemy, up one ally, and haven't lost any resources since Alex joined aside from BFG ammo.We would be down 3 enemies and up 5 BFG ammo if we had just left Alex behind.>Lmao bro she never even used the word kill.How exactly do you think we can be stopped? Putting us in jail? We have powers, we'll bust out. Permanent stasis? Sure, but that would be worse than death. Mind control? again, worse than death. There literally isn't any way of stopping us without killing us or worse. Face it, she wants to kill us.>So sharing that info worked, just like I intended.No it didn't>Who's going to believe an ad for magic armor on the internet?Plenty of people will believe an ad for completely normal antique armor.>He'd get hoaxed until word of Harmont came out, and then he'd get exactly the type of attention he wanted to avoid. He didn't have any good options for pawning his stuff.Like I said, wouldn't get hoaxed if he advertised it as completely normal armor. And the only reason he wanted to avoid attention is because he was spending time as a vigilante.
>>2048049"Alex, can you check and see that the Watcher-" you begin to ask. Instantly you grimace and grasp at your chest, immense pain wracking you for a moment."If he finds me, I'll make sure you die with me," the words echo unbidden in your mind. "I was killed in the blast, everything is fine. Understand?"
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2048060One vote for, and one against. Let's let fate decide this tribute. One is do, two is no.
>>2053372"Understood"Use the shimmering gold star from super Mario world then while your invincible tell Alex about you being haunted by the watcher.
>>2053469Your hand goes into your bag of holding and touches the shimmering invincibility star, summoning its power as you whirl to Alex."Alex! He's possessing me right now, you've got to-"Your jaw clamps down on itself."You little brat... Clever, but not clever enough. Let's see what I can find in here..."Alex whirls at your words and nods, understanding in his eyes as he pulls out a scroll and begins reading. Your hand immediately snatches for the item, Alex backpedaling as he tries to keep his concentration while avoiding your forced grabs."How long does this last? Long enough to stop me from... ah. Ah... Oh my. You didn't even mean to blow up the town? Oh that's hilarious. It doesn't make a bit of difference, but that's hilarious."
>>2053531uh, try resisting the watcher control? Ask a few questions as well while the watcher is possessing our body and reading our mind."How did you know I was living in the mansion and why did you send me the puzzle box?"
>>2053600You attempt to resist the Watcher's control over your limbs. You don't regain control of your body, but your movements become awkward, easy for Alex to avoid."I wanted to see if you were dumb enough to open it. You almost were, then you must've realized what it was. Good for you, you're smarter than the musician was, at least. I had considered approaching you with an offer of alliance, but well, that seems like it just wasn't to be.""...ARACK TOR!" Alex finishes intoning, the scroll burning away to ash as a horrid scream reverberates in your head and you black out.When you wake up, Alex is dragging you away in a fireman's carry, the brick walls of old apartment buildings moving past you.
>>2053620"Thanks Alex. Is the watcher gone for good?" Get him to put you down and start walking by ourselves.Pretty slow today
>>2053748>Probably because we're saging."I don't know. After he got out of you, I smacked him good with a Searing Ray, but then he vanished. I'm not sure if that's because the ray offed him or because he went incorporeal, but the firefighters started showing up, so I decided to book it."
>>2053748Alex shrugs you off and you stand, a little wobbly at first. Possession is a thing that does not agree with you, it seems.
>>2053833"Tsh, he probably got away. Perhaps we should find some time and teach each other spells and compare note. Me learning how to cast 'Protection from Evil' would be handy. I will need to rest for a while after being possessed.">>2053890Try manning up enough to go back to our car and go back home.
>>2053960Or to our hotel room since the mansion burned down? We should buy a plot of land in the countryside soon.
>>2053890Damn, Watcher is super strong. We'll need to tribute a ghostbusters game or something.I'll back >>2053960
>>2052628>0, once you consider that tributes are reusable.Yeah that's why we wanted to conserve ammo on the BFG, so reusable.>We would be down 3 enemies and up 5 BFG ammo if we had just left Alex behind.I don't want to know what bizarre logical leaps you had to make in your mind to reach this conclusion. I'd have an easier time believing the earth is flat.>How exactly do you think we can be stopped? Putting us in jail? We have powers, we'll bust out. Permanent stasis? Sure, but that would be worse than death. Mind control? again, worse than death. There literally isn't any way of stopping us without killing us or worse. Face it, she wants to kill us.Or she has a way to depower us/prevent us from using our power/imprison us despite our powers/has mental influencing abilities/has made an error in judgement? Just a few possibilities there, I'm not gonna list every one, but there are a lot.>No it didn'tI shared it with a goal in mind, and that goal was achieved as a direct result of the action I took. Literally the definition of success.>Plenty of people will believe an ad for completely normal antique armor.Normal antique armor doesn't tend to sell for millions of dollars, unless it's some famous historical piece. I doubt his armor looked enough like any real life sets to pass it off as such. >The only reason he wanted to avoid attention is because he was spending time as a vigilante.Another assumption.
>>2054019>One long ass post>its not an update from the OPCan't you guys just agree to disagree?
>>2053960>>2053970"Might be a good idea. I'll give you a call tomorrow night, see how everything is going," Alex says, moving to go. He pauses and frowns. "You sure you're OK?""I'm fine," you say, waving him off. "I can make it to my car from here.""All right..." Alex says, leaving you alone.It's an annoyingly unbalanced trip back to your car, and you pass quite a few police and fire vehicles responding to the havoc you left behind, but you manage to get back to your hotel room and just take it easy for the rest of the night. Room service and HBO never felt so good.>Day 32 ends.You wake up in your hotel bed, but you feel... odd, somehow."One, two, Freddy's coming for you..."The voices of singing children drift from down the hall... why is your room door open? You get up and walk over to investigate..."Three, four, Better lock your door..."The door lock is broken, the handle torn off. You gently push it open and peer into the hall. The rest of the hotel has no lights. A power outage?"Five, six, grab a crucifix..."You begin walking down the hall when you stop. Did the shadows move?"Seven, eight, Gonna stay up late..."The glint of metal claws. The vague shape of a hat, and a torn sweater as a horribly scarred man looms from the shadows in front of you. He raises his claws and laughs hysterically as you can only watch in horror."Nine, ten, Never sleep aga-"The entire scene, the hotel hall, the terrible apparition, the singing children, all are suddenly crushed to nothing with a pained scream as an impossibly broad mouth closes into a smile, bringing nothing but itself and darkness to occupy your vision."That was a very interesting idea, Watcher. But unfortunately, the dreamscape is also my playground, and I won't tolerate... interlopers."The smile chews and chews and spits out a familiar looking hat."If you're going to play with each other, do it in your own backyards. Trespassers are not welcome. Toodles!">Day 33 begins.You snap awake with a start, already breathing heavy.What the hell was that?
>>2054052"Yo smiley, what was that all about?"
>>2054041They will not. They've been jerking each other off for days
>>2054057Nothing responds to you.>Powers refreshed.
>>2054087Give alex a call, we must have miss his call yesterday.
>>2054098"Hey Alex, you make it back OK?""Yeah, man, what about you?""Had a weird dream, but other than that, I'm aces.""Good to hear. Did you want to do that note comparing thing you were talking about the other night? Or are we still on the hunt?"
>>2054052Jesus he tried to sic freddy on usthis guy loves his horror moviesAdd and tribute ghostbusters: sanctum of slime>>2054126"Let's compare notes, then I'll see if I can get something to deal with ghosts from my power.">>2054098He said he'd call this night, not last night.>>2054041He's saying wrong things on the internet and I'm constitutionally obligated to correct him
>>2054137>Game Added and Tributed: Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.A well worn book pops out of thin air. That's it? Oh right... the ghost-busters have always been perpetually broke. Well, maybe it'll come in handy.>Gained Tobin's Spirit Guide, Fifth Edition.
>>2054153Well read it then.
>>2054153fuqprobably a bustlet's compare notes with Alex, it'll be interesting if we can learn each other's spells
>>2054165>>2054194You set a time with Alex to meet at a public park to chat. It's some hours away, so you read a bit into the Spirit Guide. A lot of it is esoteric information regarding ghosts probably only native to the world of the Ghostbusters, but it has some general information and theories on post-life entities that might be of use to you.>You gain a slight bonus to any actions pertaining to ghosts while you have the Guide with you.You head out for the park and meet up with Alex without incident."So..." Alex says, leaning back on a bench. "Where do we start? Our situation? The magic? I don't think I can teach you anything, really, I just channel the power. I can't remember anything about it afterward."
>>2054229Lend him the spell book from FF. See if he can make sense of it.
>>2054241He flips through the tome."I know enough to know this is magic, but this is way different than the stuff I use. Maybe if I'd played one of those Final Fantasy tabletop adaptations... Oh well."
>>2054229Seconding >>2054241"See if you can learn this"
>>2054280Oh well, lets talk about magic some other time then. I have a magic mentor that would probably be able to examine your magic and teach it to me or teach you how to learn "my" magic. Unfortunately I didn't bring him along today.Let move on to some other topic. Last night, I was attacked by the watcher but he was foiled by smiley. He said that dreams was his playground and we should play in our backyard instead.
>>2054317"Well... that's interesting to know, because I've either had very strange dreams or no dreams at all since all this started. A lot of static and white noise, voices shouting... sometimes fragmented visions of shit. I wonder if that's The Smiling Man messing with us or if it's just a byproduct of whatever he's doing?"
>>2054337I've gotten mostly the same dreams myself.Also I'd be careful. The Watcher might come after you now. He would have anyway, he bragged about killing The Musician while he was possessing me.I gotta look up what movie he got that ghostform and resurrection ability from, because that is really getting annoying.
>>2054354Alex nods. "I'd help if I could, but I never watched too many movies. If he's anything like us, then he's probably seen some really obscure stuff since that's his passion." He smiles. "...but thanks for the warning. I've been cooking something up since things really started going down. It's not ready yet, but..." he grins wider. "...I'll take you for a tour when it's ready for the grand unveiling."
>>2054337"Dunno, I sometimes I get a glimpse of into strange thoughts of other people. Perhaps we gifted are linked to each other through the dreams."Also call The Smiling Man a faggot for not providing a pastebin.
>>2054380"Alright, I'll look forward to it. I tried grabbing something from a ghostbusters game, but that was no good. I'll see if I can dig up anything else. Stay safe."Make a note to bring the skull next time. Go back and tribute....you know what? try tributing pac man
>>2054395Pastebin is updated per thread, so there will be an updated version soon.>>2054415"You too man."You make it back to your hotel room and reach far, far back in your history, to one of the first arcade games you played before arcades stopped being a thing...A glowing sphere of... something falls into your hands. It's soft and warm to the touch, is about the size of a plum, and smells vaguely appetizing.>Tributes 2/4.
>>2054456Nice. Next time we destroy Watcher's body we're gonna use that and destroy his ghost body.Now for a BFG replacement: tribute Ratchet and Clank 3 and hope for something good.
>>2054481Unfortunately that's going to have to wait, because that's all the time I have for tonight. See everyone tomorrow and thanks for playing!
>>2054500Thanks for running!
>>2054456>Yeah that's why we wanted to conserve ammo on the BFG, so reusable.Yeah, we got 4 separate uses out of uses out of it, the very definition of reusable.>I'd have an easier time believing the earth is flat.What a coincidence, I'd have an easier time believing the earth is flat than I would believing that revealing things could be anything but harmful.>Or she has a way to depower usliterally impossible>prevent us from using our powerYou mean, kill us?>/imprison us despite our powersyou mean, permanent stasis?>has mental influencing abilitiesYou mean, mind control?>has made an error in judgement?Absolutely, but good luck convincing her of that.>that goal was achievedNo it wasn't>Another assumption.Literally what he said on the phone to us when he was questioning how we got his number.>>2054041He's saying wrong things on the internet. As an internet vigilante, it is my sworn duty to stop him.>>2054456...Tribute Polybius, if we can.
>>2054500Go back to the warehouse and ask the skull if it has come up with stuff to use our powers yet. Also repair our armour with our omnitool.
Remember folks, mortal combat emulation will eat the watchers soul
>>2054847That or one of the street fighter games to emulate Akuma.
>>2054700>>2054137At this point, none of you are "right" or "wrong," it's just a difference in opinion on what's better; steamy-hot, Alex-on-Alex action vs Gamer Quest: Sekrets Edition. Why not just hand each other contact info, and most importantly, stop arguing in thread? It's slow, very few people want to see all this clog the thread, and it's infinitely more productive for resolving/stating your positions/whatever this is you want to do.Slow thread or not, all this conflict might repel current players, and potential players as well. Then the quest will be ded, or run by you two, and that doesn't sound too fun to lurk in. I guess the QM might enjoy reading it, but I doubt it. I can't help agree with friendship-man, 'cuz Alex is neat, and sekret-man is reaching for strings at this point. Just my opinion, doe. They still both suck, doe.
>>2054700Polybius does not exist, therefore you can't have beaten it. I was extremely tempted to find some way to bend the rules for this because that is some fine and crazy thinking there, but unfortunately I cannot. Still, good show, keep thinking out of the box.>>2054724With your omnitool you can effect some repairs, but the acid damaged parts of your armor at the molecular level and you currently have no means of making more of the advanced and refined materials that make up the Advanced Power Armor. Your gear is still usuable, but it will be at reduced effectiveness."I believe I am grasping the basics of how your power works. If you have some time, I can impart this knowledge to you, it might help you develop your powers. With additional study, I can probably learn more," your skull says.>The Skull can now speed your next tier advancement if you spend a full day speaking with him and using your tributes in front of him. This "study session" cannot be repeated.You have 2 tributes left.
>>2057042Tribute Metroid Prime 3: Corruption>>2055236>At this point, none of you are "right" or "wrong,"But that can't be true. I know this because I am right. And since I am right, your claim of none of us being right or wrong cannot be true.
>>2057042Lets devote a whole day tomorrow for speaking with the skull i guess.Check the news for today.
>>2057042also tribute >>2054481
>>2057042Get on that skull advancement immediately.Also tribute Rachet and Clank 3.>>2054700I'm gonna stop here. >>2055236 makes a good point, and for the past few replies you've been ignoring my arguments and making wild assumptions just to keep going.
>>2057100A picture of Samus blowing you a kiss flutters to the floor. It says, "See you next mission...partner."Oh right. You can't use Federation credits, Samus' armaments are all unique to her power suit, and...Wait.There's a huge selection of liquor where there was none before. Liquor never seen by Earth before. Alien booze. Oh right. Samus loves her bars...All this is safe for people not enhanced by the Chozo, right? Right?>Alien Booze Sampler added.>Samus Photo added.>>2057115Your heart skips a beat when a fully loaded RYNOCIRATOR appears before you.>>2057102The news tonight is mostly about the fire at the apartment building and the hotel disappearance. Same old, same ol-"Exclusive sources state Task Force Durango has been called in to investigate the hotel disappearance, claiming it matches the MO of the North Korean killer."...oh.Oh no.
>>2057190Seems like a good reason to learning charm magic or dominate.
>>2057190It's funny because it wasn't actually the North Korean killer at all!Unless the Watcher stole the Shrike from the Leaf.You know what, why isn't the Leaf called the Reader?Text Alex about the news.I dunno how else we can prepare
>>2057190Stay the night in the warehouse, be ready for anything.
>>2057237Leaf is probably a pun based on book pages sometimes being known as leaves (ie: leafing through a book), and the fact that he is canadian (a fucking leaf did this!)Also, I am concerned, because OP seems to be suggesting that they think we are the North Korean killer.
>>2057252I gotta admit you are on point with names and meanings.They don't even know who we are though. It seems more like a mixup than anything. The fight with Watcher brought the wrong sort of attention to town.
>>2057244You pay your dues at the hotel and book it back to your warehouse, petting your cats as they meow plaintively and rub against you when you enter the door.It's now very late, and you are very tired. You wander over to the old room where you crashed in before and fall asleep. There are no dreams this night.>Day 32 ends.>Day 33 begins.You wake up to cats meowing and grumble as you fetch them food. It's a good thing the kittens are so damn soft.
So you guys wanna skip town till the whole thing blows over or hide in our warehouse?
>>2057271Lets spend time with the skull an tribute stuff.
>>2057272We absolutely aren't skipping town until our we finish our skull advancement. We can look into it once we have.>>2057271Get to that Skull sidequest right fucking now.Tribute Dungeons & Dragons: Eye of the Beholder to start.
>>2057271Do the day with the skull for the upgrade.>>2057272I don't know, let's wait until they get here and see how rigorous they're gonna make life.
>>2057271TributeTom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double AgentMaster of Magic
>>2057283>Game Tributed: Eye of the BeholderA dagger dripping with venom appears before you.>Game Tributed: Splinter Cell: Double AgentA paper bag full of cash and a few passports minus pictures fall in front of you. Guess Sam figured you might be on the run if you were the sort to help him. You'll need to doctor the passports with pictures but most of the work is already done for you. Of course being from another world they won't hold up to something like a database search, but for a spot inspection...You have already used Master of Magic.
>>2057338I thought we just emulated it? So you can't tribute it if you emulated it?
>>2057290You spend the day learning with the skull and listening to him speculate and theorize on ways to empower the bond that lets you draw forth the power of games. According to the skull, he believes that the passion with which you've connected to the games is the key, accessing some sort of imagination space or collective subconsciousness... a dream-land if you will, that in turn connects to higher and lower planes of reality. Whether these are actual parallel world or simply constructs of the inhabitants of this one he does not know... but this is the nature of the bridge you are using.This knowledge is enough to push you over the edge.>Tier Up.>"I Didn't Ask For This": You may make specific requests when tributing items, and while not guaranteed to appear, the chance of them being the summoned item dramatically increases. This is more of you taking than asking.>You are also aware there is one final tier ability left to your power.
>>2057345Correct. Once a game is used for any reason, it cannot be used again.
>>2057355Oh snapTribute Path of exile, ask a mage for cloth armor with high energy shield
>>2057355Fug, shit just got real. Are we out of tributes for the day?
>>2057372>Path of Exile Tributed.>Carnal Armor gained.>>2057388You are now.
>>2057411As long as we're going to have Alex as our ally anyway, we should probably have him meet with our skull mentor. Especially since he seems better equipped to handle ghosts than we are.
>>2057411Use 7 proxies and look up Durango newsSet up a private meeting with Alex and bring skull
>>2057355Use the rest of our time to our shaper power to create a bird for scouting.>ShapeLife: a bird, intelligence in a eagle size body.
>>2057413You are out of tributes and out of time, so...The day with the Skull has proven empowering, but exhausting and you pass into another dreamless sleep that ends all too soon.>Day 33 ends.>Day 34 begins>TF2 TributedNo need to dance around it. You got the Dead Ringer.Tributes: 3/4
>>2057452Roll a d100.>>2057443There is nothing further about Durango in the news."Sure, I can meet. When and where?"
>>2057460Tribute Bravely Second: End Layer.Ask for the Exorcist Asterisk.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>2057464Tell him to find a hotel room, this may take the better part of a day, we'll foot the bill.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>2057464
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>2057464seconding >>2057473but also tell him to bring scrolls
>>2057473>>2057476>>2057484Axel grabs a room in a Holiday Inn Express. He already feels smarter.You spend four hours and manage to shape an eagle familiar that's smart enough to understand your commands and is loyal to you. It's still a bit of a bird-brain, though.>>2057469>Gained Exorcist Asterisk
>>2057521Alright, send the bird out around the city to scout for the Watcher. Tell it to be discreet.Then meet Alex at the hotel with the skull.
>>2057521Meet him there, bring skull mentor, equip Exorcist Asterisk upon arrival.
>>2057533Roll a d100.>>2057543You arrive at the hotel, Alex opening the door without fanfare. There are already scattered papers, dice, and books covering the second bed in the room."Yeah, well, I figured I'd work on my new campaign while waiting. It's gonna be awesome. Assuming the world survives whatever the hell is going on," Alex nods. "So what's up?""There's someone I want you to meet," you say, pulling a cloth off the skull and holding it up. Alex blinks."Is this some Harvard secret society shit, because I don't-""I know not of this 'Harvard', so I can not be of their membership," the skull intones. "Look ye now on the Skull Mentor, and prepare for knowledge of-""Holy shit, man! A talking skull? That's awesome! What's your name, dude?""...Theocritus, but that's not...""I'm Alex. Same name as that guy over there, you know?""I'm aware of the master's name, yes.""...does he make you call him master or...""Yes, very amusing, playful banter aside," you interrupt, rolling your eyes. "I brought my Skull Mentor here so it could teach you magic as well.""It will take a while to learn his measure," the skull says, empty sockets gazing at Alex. "A few hours before I will be able to tell what can be done."
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>2057634
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>2057634Alright! Time to help with that campaign. Recommend he put in more dragons.
>>2057634"Certainly. He has a quite similar power to mine, so have him show you that and give him the same spiel you gave me on understanding it when you have time"In the meantime, start practicing exorcist powers right away. We did set the asterisk, right? Bite our thumb/finger hard enough to draw blood, then Undo HP. Do that until we can Undo Action or until we run out of MP.
>>2057650"Really? I thought it needed more dungeons, honestly...">>2057661"Understood," the skull says, as he and Alex begin to talk.You begin practicing, but you run out of "MP" pretty fast. Not as fast as when you first started though... there's been improvement. You rest a while, then practice again until you run out of power.How long will you do this?>>2057646Your bird will be reporting back in a few hours.
>>2057734Keep it up until the bird returns.In one of the rest periods, look up news on task force Durango
>>2057734Until at least we reach Steady MP Recover ability, or Skull Mentor finishes with Alex.Pull out our Fictorum Staff while we practice to hasten our MP recovery.
>>2057751There's still no news, but after four hours you're still biting away and the skull has completed taking its measure of Alex."Much like yourself, he needs to have his inner spark awakened somehow. However, given his specialty seems to be emulating and using abilities of characters connected to him, I theorize that once he learns the basics, it might be possible for him to advance rapidly using that ability.""I'm right here, you know," Alex says.Your bird returns at this time, pecking at the window until you open it and let it in."No sign of movie man," the bird manages to screech. "Many flashy light men in city outskirts though."
>>2057823Alright, looks like what his current campaign needs is a way to grant someone magic potentialFlashy light men....hmmmPolice?
>>2057823Tribute SMT:IV ask for a fully trained Masakado's Shadow.Tribute SMT:IV Apocalypse, ask for a stack of mag incense.
>>2057823add and tribute the tales of symphonia sequel and ask for their strongest exsphere
>>2057851>SMT:IV Apocalypse TributedTen sticks of mag incense appear in your hand.>SMT:IV Tributed.A shadowy samurai appears before you... and then vanishes.Oh, right. You have no Digital Devil Summoning equipment....does that mean you just unleashed an actual ghost or demon or god or whatever on the world? Well, good thing it's Masakado then. He shouldn't cause any havoc. Hopefully.You are now out of Tributes for the night.
>>2057902Hmmm, that totally won't bite us in the ass later. Pass a mag incense to Alex. Tell him to use it to kick start his magic career.Can we start a sidequest of contracting Masakado's Shadow? Shouldn't be too difficult to acquire a comp or something in a day or two.Also, it sounds like things are starting to wind down, get ready to head back to the warehouse.
>>2057919get it from another tensei game?maybe overclocked since they had those digivice looking phones and ask for one
>>2057933I'm thinking Devil Survivor 2, their COMPs are explicitly cell phones with the demon summoning program installed. I'm hoping to be able to copy it over to our super phone.
Thank the gods for another bird anon, fucking about time.>My motherfucking games anon' Max Payne, Strabglehold , The Matrix Series.Just do it. Birds are always awesome for spying
>>2057933Also, we could summon a Zoma Zeed from Devil Summoner Soul Hackers once we have a COMP.Always maximum loyalty to the summoner.
>>2057902Make sure Alex knows what he needs is a way to gain the ability to cast magic, now that I think about it he should have something like that in at least one of his campaigns. Ask the skull if it can give insight into upgrading his Knight ability the same way he did for our Gamer tributes.
>>2057973You talk a little with Alex about the process of 'really' becoming a mage, explaining what you had to do. He nods."I might have a thing or two that can manage that, but I'd need to really look into it. Thanks for the incense, though, should really help!"The skull's eyes glow for a moment. "I will have to observe him much as I did you, but it should be very possible.">>2057942I already added those games. If you want to tribute them, you'll have to wait for the next game day since you're currently out.>>2057902You start heading back to the warehouse. It's not night yet, but it's getting there. As you turn down the street a few blocks from your warehouse, you see a most unwelcome sight.There is a police barricade blocking the road ahead.>Quest paused.Unfortunately that's all the time I have for tonight. Thanks for playing, everyone!
>>2057985Is the barricade surrounding our warehouse? Guess a police confrontation is inevitable.
>>2057985Go park you car somewhere else and have the bird scout the area the barracade is surrounding. Check if police are doing anything to our warehouse.
>>2057985Is our heathstone keyed to our warehouse?
>>2058381Yes it is.>>2058162You pull into a McDonald's parking lot and let loose your bird. Twenty minutes he returns."Flashy men around home, boss."
>>2059600Well fuck, Hearthstone it back. Are we wearing the carnel armor?
>>2059600Make certain to clarify whether they are IN the warehouse.
>>2059616"Flash men IN warehouse.">>2059611The Carnal Armor is a little conspicuous, were you wearing it around town?
>>2059698I guess not. We we do have the borderlands shield so hearth it now.
>>2059698Alright gents, here is the plan.Hearthstone in, emulate Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven and immediately start touching as many of the men inside as possible. I doubt the emulation will last any significant length of time, so we need to do it as quickly as possible. We will change their very essence into one that is completely loyal to us.Don't START the emulation until we are already touching when of the men with our hands.
>>2059711Which stand? Its been a while since I read Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
>>2059719It's the game only one where the main villain gets a stand that can rewrite reality for whatever it punches.
>>2059735Stands can KILL people, if they're unworthy. You can't just ASK for one, each stand is different for each person. The stand ARROW, sure, or the Holy Corpse Parts, but why would they give you either? Too valuable.
>>2059756Well what if we emulate Heaven Dio himself to use his stand?
>>2059756Ok buddy, first of all, I explained, I didn't suggest it. Look at the IDs.Second of all, we aren't tributing, we're emulating.Third of all, how would you even give a stand? It's like a part of your very being. Can't be done.
>>2059711Oh my, you're going with this plan?Well then, give me a d100.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>2059792
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>2059792
>>2059756Don't forget, Jotaro has the same kind of stand as DIO. So we can emulate him as well.
>>2059792I'm against. We could emulate any of a 1000 mages and cast mass sleep. I'm wondering what happened to our sentry gun. I hope its alright.Might be time to fire up the madcat
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>2059792
>>2059839The reason I suggest this plan is twofold. First of all, it lets us get these guys off of our back in the here and now. Secondly, it gives us long term leverage against any investigation towards us, or legal action if it gets that far.
>>2059860What if it fails and now they're hostile because we attacked them?
>>2059867You mean they weren't hostile already because we have a sentry gun that's attacked them? Unlikely.But in that case, we have a sack full of shit and another emulation to throw at them.
>>2059839Well this could be our second phase of our plan when our emulation for Jojo runs out. Mass sleep them, Tie them up, wait till tomorrow then deal with them.Tribute a Men in Black game and ask for a Neuralyzer.
>>2059860>SecondlyThat is the dumbest shit I have ever heard. What about the rest of the cops OUTSIDE who might be going back and forth. Oh well guess they can kill each other and save us some bullets. Stupid.>Cast AutoLife please
>>2059883Why would we have them kill each other when we could just have them do something illegal and get all their evidence thrown out?
>>2059798>>2059799You begin to channel the power of the Hearthstone and time seems to slow down for you, sounds becoming muted and distorted as space becomes... bendy for lack of a better word. The Hearth doesn't work as normal, everything going black for a moment, as a giant smile grins and... a great tongue emerges from between the teeth and licks nonexistent lips."Goood. Delicious. Keep it up, keep it up..."You explode into reality in the middle of your warehouse in a flurry of green energy and leaves, immediately drawing the attention of the fifteen or so policemen who are walking around taking notes, packing things into boxes, or taking pictures. To the side you see the smoking remains of your Sentry Gun and several chalk outlines, some still containing bodybags from where the police forced an entry.Your battlemech is in the center of the warehouse, festooned with cables, winches, and security straps. It looks like they were preparing to haul it out of the warehouse with a crane or two or three.There is no time to look more. You run for the nearest cop even as they slowly realize they are not hallucinating. You grab the first two at the same time as you emulate Dio, overwriting their personalities in an instant. They go limp, jaws slack as their brains struggle to catch up with their new outlooks. You don't slow down, sprinting to the next officer and repeating the process, then to another...A bullet whizzes by your head. They've drawn their guns now. Another two cops are remade, leaving nine against you and six slowly waking up. You can feel the immense power of the World Over Heaven starting to leave your body.What do you do?
>>2059882Dude we're FUCKING SURROUNDED! Like the army of cops outside are just going to wait til morning....
>>2059890Emulate Sonic to stretch the World Over Heaven as far as it will go.I'll leave specific commands to the other Anons.
>>2059890Punch the ground and turn it to lava!But actually punch ourselves, teleport about a mile away.This was a bad idea.
>>2059906thisbeat me to it.
>>2059889 Cause>>2059890That's why. They no doubt heard that. Emulate a mass sleeper and try to touch as many as possible.Fire up that madcat
>>2059921Not seeing anything that can stop us from using them long term to sabotage evidence, bring our shit back to us on the sly, or testify on our behalf. Or indeed, anything that can stop them from declaring an accidental misfire.
>>2059906>>2059916>>2059922Roll another d100.

Wew, this is going terribly. Dice gods sure are fickle. How many dead cops do we need to to get out of this?
>>20599700. We use any juice left in old sonic to vacate the scene, grabbing anything we can carry on the way.Tell one of our police officers to fuck up the investigation on our way out, and to pass the message along.
>>2059956>>2059958>>2059959Writhe in my cage of torment, my friend."Gotta go fast," you murmur, spinning around the room at supersonic speed, grabbing and changing the cops within. Seeing someone move outside you burst from the warehouse and leap into action, laying hands on another policeman and attempting to overwrite him... just as the power of Dio leaves you.Outside the warehouse is a cordon of several police cars, a large mobile facility of some sort, and what looks like a SWAT van.A fist suddenly rebounds off your energy shield as the police officer attempts to punch you in the face. He fails, but he does manage to escape your grip, twisting away as about twelve of his fellows begin to draw weapons and take up cover behind their cars."GET DOWN ON THE GROUND! GET DOWN! ON THE GROUND!" you hear them bellow. A few of them don't draw weapons, but instead pull radios and frantically yell into them.
>>2060024Yeah, no. Dash back inside, then this >>2059983Lucky for us, we don't look like ourselves at the moment.
>>2060040>>2059983We should take the mech as well. We could shrink down it down into one lifelike action figure using the shrink gun so nobody else can have it.
>>2060046Oh, we have a shrink gun? Use that then, shrink down anything that we can't carry.We CAN return them to normal size, right?
>>2060046Nobut we can figure it out later how to revert it to normal size.
>>2060040I like this ideaespecially if we take one of the cops with us for info and order one of the others to try and kill as many of the task force members that came to the city.Alternatively, we could ride the mech and crush all the cops
>>2060074Let's not turn this into a military intervention when we've tapped all of our trump cards. Have our guys fuck up the investigation, and then we hide out for a night, gather our wits, and regroup.We'll have plenty of opportunity to wreak havoc on their team once we're rocking an Apple of Eden or an obscenely powerful demon or something like that.
>>2060089We want the cops to live. Dead cops means more heat. We want less heat, so we kill the investigation and the evidence.
>>2060024I support the run away with remaining sonic emulation plan
>>2060024Ok grab everything we can and shrink ray down everything that is too big like the mech so we can grab it and run. Try not to kill cops.Shit, mobile posting is annoying.
>>2060040>>2060046>>2060109You immediately dash back inside and begin shrink raying the mech down, shouting your instructions to your new thralls as you grab whatever you can stuff into your bag and Digital Inventory. You'll do a full count later.You only manage to shrink the mech and grab a few things before a SWAT team bursts in through the door and you make the speediest retreat of your life, avoiding bullets on the way.You're just outside of the cordon and outside of sight when the Sonic emulation wears off.
>>2060121Sigh, what items are missing?
>>2060121Phew! That was an adventure! Find a safe place to camp out for the night (buy a tent if needed), and spend any remaining time before bed practicing our exorcist skills under the watchful eye of our skull mentor.
>>2060121Also what happed to Igor?
>>2060145Only two options, he was gunned down as soon as the sentry gun was taken care of, or he was taken in.
>>2060121Back to car, hit freeway. Find small seedy hotel or some shit, check stock. Yet another fine mess. Time to blow town
>>2060130You no longer have the treasure tributed to you from Fable, Bahamut Lagoon, or really anything that just gave you a pile of gold and such. You managed to grab your cash and the diamonds, though.You lost your disc on Fusion research, Alex's Treatise on Mental Fortitude, Isador's Bolt Pistol, Torbjorn's Sentry Gun,Night Vision Goggles, Metro Universal Charger, Rune Factory Platinum Hammer, FFT Blaster, Lancer Assault Rifle, the Infant Dragon Familiar Corpse, the Grey Warden Tribute Chest and Poultices, the High Frequency Blade, Engraved Artisan Full Plate Armor, and the damaged Advanced Power Armor.
>>2060177I'm hoping we might just turn ourselves in in a day or two(once we have fixed the white hair, yellow eyes, blotchy skin), emulate Phoenix Wright(circa Dual Destinies, or Spirit of Justice where he is portrayed as actually competent) and have the entire case thrown out. And after that? Who knows, it might be time to start working with the alphabet soup organizations, get some people organized to deal with whatever is coming.
>>2060195Damn, that is some real damage there. At least we can request tributes now. I have some real hard hitters that I think other Anons will love. We'll have better stuff than any of that before you know it.
>>2060135>>2060177You manage to find a very no questions asked sort of motel and grab a room for the night. You manage to practice Exorcism a bit more, but you're pretty shaken with everything. Pretty soon you find yourself passing out.>Day 34 ends.>Day 35 begins.You wake up in the somewhat dingy motel and sigh. A few nights ago you were in a top class hotel. How quickly the tide turns...>>2060157Is probably right, but you don't know for sure.
>>2060195I don't see the Angel Halo from Monmusu Quest in there! Good thing we knew what to save!>>2060204Um, Canada got nuked, North Korea got slaughtered, and you think they're gonna follow due process? That's the dumbest thing you've said, and believe me, you've said a lot of stupid shit.>>2060210Check the news for any mention of our warehouse raid.
>>2060210Alright, how do you guys want to handle this? I'm thinking we tribute Devil Survivor 2 for a COMP, Devil summoner soul hackers for Latter Dragon type 2 Zoma Zeed, Ass creed 2 or 3 for an Apple of Eden, and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel for a level OP+8 "the Sham" (which has a 94% chance to absorb enemy bullets and add them to your own stock)But I'm willing to hear other ideas.
>>2060220They certainly seemed to be following due process at our warehouse. Pretty stupid to think that they are going to pin everything on a guy with absolutely no connection to North Korea.More importantly, try coming up with a plan to empower us to more effectively deal with the shit coming down.
>>2060240I have no idea what the first is, don't want the second, but I'll support the third.
>>2060220Oddly enough there is absolutely no mention of it.
>>2060258No other anons right. You're a dipshit. Your ideas are constantly bad. Turn ourselves in? Yeah fucking right. Ur tribs r bad 2.I'd suggest not tributing shit til were a safe spot
>>2060258https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Due_process>>2060284Ok, this is troubling. We need a game with a crystal ball or something that'll let us scry. How do we look in regards to the life drain? Recovered yet?
>>2060240I am a bit miffed that we lost our stuff. I feel like just Tributing Supreme Commader and asking for a fully upgraded ACU and giving the investigation team their second north Korea.We should learn a spell that can make hostile targets loyal or a item that can brainwash niggas.
>>2060283A comp lets us hold demons. We should definitely get that even if we aren't getting a Zoma Zeed, so that we can contract that Masakado's Shadow that got loose.Zoma Zeed is a special demon that you get early on, that evolves as you do, and always has perfect loyalty to the summoner. It can get obscenely powerful, just like the other big bad demons.What about the Sham? We could use a bigger shield to deal with what is going down.
>>2060284K time to hit the road then. How do we contact our thralls? Can we super phone them?
>>2060297Ok I'll support the first. As for the shield, we have the jury rigged BL2 one which isn't great, but we also have the cloth armor from PoE that grants energy shield, so we may be good on that front.
>>2060292And what was your big plan? A fucking bird, that's what. And what was he able to tell us? That he saw police. That's it. How would you have dealt with the police, huh? Destroy the entire fucking station and get the National Guard on our ass? You may not like them, but they worked better than yours.> Ur tribs r bad 2.Then come up with better ones, bitch, but I think you'll have a hard time beating an Apple of Eden in particular.
>>2060300And where the fuck are our cats?!? That could be very bad
>>2060307But it stands out to much. Let get a trenchcoat to hide it and wear it from now on.
>>2060295We could ask for a stack of wands of charm person. I'm sure we could swing that from one of the Dungeons and Dragons video games we haven't tapped yet.
>>2060240If no one has any other suggestions, I'll be going with these, barring the shield I guess since someone vetoed it?>>2060300How would you phone them?Also, where are you going?>>2060309You don't know.
>>2060359Well I would like to tribute for the shield as well.
>>2060320The thing is, people aren't going to just stand around and let us cast spells on them.You also don't need magic to get a saving throw.It's also unlikely we'll get that tribute, most DnD games don't give out wands in quantity, let alone wands of the same spell. The character won't have them to give.>>2060359Agh no only take the first and thirdWe recover from the life drain yet?News say anything about the green plague?
>>2060376>The thing is, people aren't going to just stand around and let us cast spells on them.This is true, but we could definitely catch one or two people off guard. Moot point if we get an Apple anyway.
>>2060376The Green Death is continuing to spread. The cities near the epicenter are actually under martial law now.You look a little better. You look unhealthy now, instead of a monster.
>>2060406Alright, let's cast refresh on ourselves and see if we can't clear it up completely.Tribute Devil Survivor 2 for that COMP as well, we want to capture that shadow.
>>2060359The next closest city to us. Or major metro area to lay low awhile. Since some fucks going to suggest it anyways might as well call Alex
>>2060455What will you say when you call?
>>2060359Lets sneak back to the warehouse before we leave and try to contact some of our thralls and maybe get some more of our stuff back.Do we remember their faces, OP?>>2060475I am on the run Alex. My hideout has been raised by the cops. Stay safe.
>>2060475Our warehouse got raided by police and a bunch of our shit got confiscated.Also we left a sentry gun in there so we might be in trouble with the law, and need to law low for a bit.
>>2060484>>2060475This is probably as best as we can spin what happened.
>>2060240You get a small cellphone with the Devil Summoning software, and a silvery sphere that fits into your hand.>Tributes 2/4>>2060482>>2060484"Jesus... OK, I'm going to ground for a bit. I'll contact you in a few days, I think I'll have a hideout ready by then."
>>2060537Alright. We ever cast refresh? If it fixed us, go out and venture closer to our warehouse. If we see a loyalized cop alone, make contact.If it didn't fix our looks, stay in with the skull. Try tributing Hearthstone. Not even sure what I want to ask for.
>>2060537>Bronze sphere, my bad.>Quest paused.I'll start the next thread Sunday with whatever you pick for the remaining two tributes as you hit the road. Seeya then!
>>2060552Well we shouldn't cast refresh till we meet a loyal cop because it might fix our face and they might not recognise us.
>>2060558Add gamesMen in Black - The Series: CrashdownMen in Black II: Alien EscapeTribute Men in Black II: Alien Escape for a portable Neuralyzer. Get a trenchcoat so we can wear it over our Carnal Armor and look slightly less suspicious.Also get a ray-ben glasses to protect ourselves when using the Neuralyzer.Go sneak around the police barricade looking for thralls.
If we emulate vtmb could we emulate the taxi driver?
>>2060912Or the tzimesch and learn fleshcrafting albeit possibly at the expense of becoming a vampire.But a better idea, tribute prince of Persia and ask for dagger of timeAnd get the hour glass from the two thrones
>>2060567We've got an apple of eden, and I'm sure we'll be able to prove our identity some other way, like naming what items were in the warehouse.
>>2060558>>2060240A couple more games to tribute, since Anons didn't like some of my last ideas.Kirby super star (or ultra, whichever we haven't tributed yet), ask for a deluxe copy essence of the "Copy" ability. Proceed to use said essence to basically become Kirby.Tribute Jojo's bizarre adventure: All Star Battle, ask for the corpse pieces (which can be collected during battle). I think you know where I am going with this one.
Okay I'm still suggesting moving on to the next major urban area. In the meantime, send the bird back to the warehouse and have wait til one of thralls is alone. Give thrall burner number:"Master commands you to contact immediately"Learn where our shit is and retrieve, hopefully by emulating a game with teleportation/transporters. Find a new place ASAP, and get reorganized. Check the news when time allows.Also; I'm just going to point out that the superphone, omnitool (once retrieved), and the digital inventory COULD theoretically be combined in horadic cube. Though I'm going to guess OPs going to want a d100 for that and don't know if its worth the risk.
>>2064427I WAS just thinking about using our Horadric cube to get rid of some of our clutter. I think fusing our digital inventory is a bad idea though, especially with so much of our shit inside it.You're on to something with Omnitool + Super Phone though.
>>2064558Why use the Horadric Cube to clear up excess inventory when we can just get raided by the cops again?
>>2064563Because we want to end up with better equipment to show for it, which the police unfortunately do not provide.
>>2064586Honestly I'm surprised the cube has been so effective. In the game, if you didn't give it a valid recipe it did nothing.
>>2064714This is true, but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth.Hey, do you think we could fuse our skull mentor with our shrunken battlemech to put him in control of it?
>>2064732I'd rather keep him as a noncombatant. Too valuable to risk.
>>2064801What are your thoughts on fusing our lightsaber and our black blade?I was serious when I said we should reduce our clutter with the Horadric cube.>>2064427Speaking of the Horardric cube, I believe we still have the Omnitool if we were serious about fusing it.
>>2065104Omnitool plus phone for sure.Lightsaber and blade are likely not similar enough to be combined perfectly.
>>2065140So many possibilities!Advanced Power Armor helmet + Jury-rigged shieldSomewhat Shrunken BFG + Diamond encrusted laser rifleRYNOCIRATOR + Omega RYNO 4-EverJetpack + Novafire Cape
I meant the universal charger, not the digital inventory. I'm also of the notion that the mobsters snitched us out. We should keep moving and get the shadow under control and have him deal with the wise guys.I'm still for sending the bird to contact a thrall, we might even get Igor and our cats if we play our cards right. I'm not really cool with leaving that disc in fed hands nor the busted t800.
>>2065330Bird doesn't know who to contact, and won't get a second chance if it fucks up.Try instead making an advertisement with a chibi version of us saying that loyal people should go to such and such website.The website should be a basic cam chat interface, with a single instruction to turn on your web cam.When web cam turns on, it should send a text to our super phone allowing us to view the video, and text back more commands. We then use the commands and questions to verify that the person is indeed loyal.From there it should be pretty easy to make contact with the other loyalists.Or you could just take the easy route and walk right up to the nearest police station with the apple of eden and work your way up the chain until you find task force durango, reclaiming our items and making the witnesses personally destroy all the evidence of our presence along the way.
>>2065558To improve upon the advertised website plan, have the website text a burner phone when ready, and then we log in to the website on our super phone when the burner phone goes off.proxies/vpn/encryption as is prudent.
I am wondering why didn't the security alarm alert us when our warehouse was compromised.
Here we go again.>2065715
>>2065720Ah, what a difference, even a single character can make.>>2065715
