>>3053201You call up Kurosaki and tell him that you're currently in a stand-off against a bear. He seems really confused and you hear him go "A... bear?" before you explain the situation further. He asks for your current location, which you manage to get out of the panicking waitress.As you're on the phone with Kurosaki you see the bear stare at the building for a bit, not advancing further, before it just lies down and seemingly goes to sleep.

Rolled 2 (1d3)>>3053228apparently it can only roll one sort of dice at a timethe more you know
>>3053228You begin talking to one of the men about why they were out in the woods. Despite the situation you're in he seems to be calm enough to chat and starts telling you about what they were doing in the woods.Apparently the three men had gone to hunt, both in an attempt to reduce the local deer population and for fun. They were having good luck until they wound up in a part of the forest with very few animals in it. While they were packing up and getting ready to end their trip the bear attacked out of nowhere, clawing their friend in the chest. The other two panicked, surprised by the bear, and shot at it, managing to scare it off for a bit. You ask why the men don't just shoot it with the guns you assume are still in their bags, and the man just replies "Bears aren't normally this aggressive, and taking it down with one or two shots seems unlikely. It's best to just wait for the authorities to get here. I called the police, so I'm guessing it shouldn't be long."Outside your hear the bear loudly growl, almost as if in anger or pain, before it lies back down.

>>3053285>>3053309>>3053316You wait for a while until you see an ambulance pull up. They stop for a minute, confused by the bear, who is currently loudly growling in place and clawing at the ground. Before one of the medics can risk trying to enter the diner, you see Kurosaki show up on a motorcycle, decked out in biker gear. Er, you guess he got that motorcycle he was talking about.Kurosaki takes off his shades, leather jacket, and helmet before you see him slowly begin to walk towards the bear. One of the people from the ambulance tries to stop him but they seem to stop in place before they can reach him, as Kurosaki goes closer and closer to the growling beast.Kurosaki looks the bear up and down before you see him say something you can't hear and go to punch the bear. The bear seems to stop its odd behavior and goes to block the punch with a claw, standing up on its hind legs. The block fails and the bear falls on the ground. Kurosaki jumps on-top of the bear and aims a few quick punches at points you don't recognize before the bear seems to freeze up. Kurosaki loudly yells before you see his hand, now held straight instead of in a fist, begin faintly glowing as it is thrust into the bear's body. A few moments later you see Kurosaki's hand appear again, now very bloody and holding a bear's heart (although it's too big to properly "hold"). Oh dear lord, that was brutal.The ambulance staff, still shocked and confuse, begin treating the man in the cafe. After Kurosaki washes his hands he turns to you and says "So, we should probably get going before I get charged for hunting without a license or something." and hands you his helmet as he begins to rev up his motorcycle. For some reason he still has the giant bear heart with him. You...>Are rather shocked and are just going to try to process this during the drive >Ask Kurosaki how exactly he killed a bear that quickly>Ask Kurosaki why he still has the heart of a bear with him.>Other>

>>3053369>>3053372As the motorcycle starts up you ask Kurosaki how exactly he killed a bear that quickly and if he'll teach you. While you're asking him this you see him put the bear heart in a basket he has attached to the motorcycle. He then closes the basket and uses a key to lock it shut, saying that "he doesn't want more weird stuff going onto someone's windshield".In response to your question Kurosaki says "Well, first I used a punch infused with a bit of chi and all of that good stuff to enhance my strength and managed to put the bear onto its back. Then I attacked a few points that the physical energies pass through and injected more of various energies into those, managing to override his body's ability to control itself through said points. After that I used a significantly larger amount of chi to pierce through the hide of the bear and tear out its heart. It seemed to be possessed or something so I felt it was the safest method. As for whether I'll teach you, that depends on whether you can reach my level. The mighty Black Vortex Dragoncrusher Style can't be mastered by just anyone."

>>3053400>>Ask what he means by "possessed".and>Does he think that we can master it?
>>3053406You ask Kurosaki what exactly he means by possessed and he says "Well, the bear seemed to be acting odd and I sensed some sort of weak evil spirit latching onto its soul. The spirit itself wouldn't make it stronger as far as I know, just fill it with rage and make it aggressive. The odd part though is that the specific type is very rare unless there's something producing them in the area. It's worth further investigating."After that you ask Kurosaki if he thinks you could master it. He thinks for a moment before going "Well, your soul is stronger than most and you have that power of yours. I personally haven't trained another disciple but you should be able to get further than most. You'll probably be able to be what most people consider a 'black belt' and begin using the basics of chi by the time you're 15 or 16. Depending on how things go you could reach that point before then, or you could hit a wall around there. Who knows."

>>3053450You ask Kurosaki whether he's going to purify the bear's heart to send it to the afterlife properly and you hear him go "Uh...er...no, not really. I was planning to get a friend to help me make a solution of vigor out of it. If you're strong enough it would help restore your stamina. If you're not it would taste terrible and possibly send you to the hospital." Well, that was less noble than expected.You ask Kurosaki if the evil spirit might have something to do with your ghost friend you got the art from and replies "No, I don't think a ghost would cause that. Whatever is causing the spirits to appear may have made the ghost in that mansion more powerful and more aggressive though. One that can control an entire mansion seems odd for a normal artist, but ghosts are odd in general so it didn't raise any red flags when you mentioned it. Combined with this, though, and it seems like I should look into this." Kurosaki then parks his motorcycle at the library and begins taking off his biking gear. He says "Well, I guess I should start looking into this situation. Oh, and your art sales should be finished within a week or so. Remember to come by tomorrow for practice."Having escaped the threat of a mauling by bear successfully, you...>Want to ask Kurosaki how you could get stronger faster>Are gonna have some fun at the arcade after all this.>Will wander around for anything interesting [1d100].>Want to look for a harmonica tutor.>May as well see what's in at the pawn shop (1d36) [this is mostly based off of a loot table, if you roll a 1 you aren't going to suffer]>Ask Hikaru to teach you his weird boardgame>Get someone to show you how to use a computer at the library>Other

>>3053492You back to the pawn shop and see that the interior as as crowded with random objects as ever. Books, clothes, electronics, and all sorts of things fill the place up. After looking around for a while you find a weird thing that looks like some sort of tool or gun inside a glass case and ask the owner what it is.The man turns towards you, putting out his cigarette before grabbing the item and a few other things. He then says "Well, this here is a pick gun. With about half a day to a day of training you can use it to open up some basic pin and tumbler locks. It's loud and has maybe a 10%-20% of breaking whatever lock you use it on, but it's simple to use and only takes around 10 to 15 seconds to open the door if you know what you're doing. I can sell it to you with some locks to practice it on and a few things you need with it for 35,000 yen."

There's an old-fangled black and white TV, an aged VCR player, and a fancy new DVD player. You notice that the DVD player seems to have been marked up since last time. In addition there's the Gameboy Advance from before and a few games lying around.

There are also some decent pairs of dress and tennis shoes. Looking around further you find the pile of silly hats from last time and see that it has grown. What makes a man collect this many weird hats?

>>3053860You begin wandering around the neighborhood when you spot Kanozaki walking somewhere. You follow him around to some place called "Pachinkoland" and watch him play some game where balls keep falling for about 15 minutes. You also notice that you're the only kid there and that you're getting some weird looks. Eventually Kanozaki gets up to leave (looking very disappointed) and you pull the lever at the machine he was on out of curiosity. A few balls fall down and then land in a hole. You then hear a loud ringing from the machine as it lights up and declares you a "BIG WINNER". A little golden medal pops out of the machine and after asking around you find out that it can be exchanged for goods.You go up to the front desk of the place and they seem to debate among themselves for a minute before telling you that you can exchange it in but that you have to leave after that because you're too young. Oh. Ok. You look at the prizes you can exchange for the golden medal and get...>A necklace with a red jewel, worth approximately 300,000 yen>A home computer with accessories, which can be either delivered or picked up at any point within the next month, worth approximately 340,000 yen>JSDF-issued night vision goggles, worth approximately 400,000 yen>A Mrs. Pacman/Galaga arcade machine from the 80s, which can be either deliered or picked up at any point within the next three months, worth approximately 310,000 yen.

After a couple of minutes you spot him exiting a weird store that seems to sell a bunch of stuff like incense and the like.You follow Kanozaki and after a few minutes you see him knock on a nondescript door in an alley six times and say "Daggertooth". The door then opens and Kanozaki slips inside. You...>Go up to the door and do the same thing>Go back to that shop he was in before>Other

The person who opens it seems very confused but gestures you in anyways and says "The VIP seats are to the left."Looking around you notice that where you're in almost looks like a sort of concrete sports stadium. You seem to be at the top right now, with rows of partially filled seats below you. A wooden arena covered in padding is at the bottom. Given that you just entered through a door at ground level, that means that almost the entire stadium is underground.You turn towards where the guy at the door said the VIP seats are and hear someone say from behind you "Nice to see you Buki-chan." You immediately turn around and see Kanozaki smiling. He says "I noticed you following me around so I said the password loud enough for you to get in, it's good to see you made it. I'm in town and was planning to pay you a visit later, but I guess we're meeting earlier than expected. Follow me."You follow Kanozaki and eventually he leads you into a carpeted room with some fancy sofas, a large TV mounted on the roof, a mini-fridge, and a glass wall facing the arena. Kanozaki says "Kurosaki and Endo won't be showing up for around 15 minutes, we were planning on watching an underground fighting tournament today. Pretty much everything is legal as long as it's not fatal. I don't think any of the competitors are as strong as one of us, but it should be entertaining."

Ok, that means they had to qualify ahead of time..." before he says to you "If she competed it's possible that she'd be killed by accident if they weren't careful enough. Not due to malice, just due to a difference in power. I remember her from before and I can think of a few underground tournaments she could compete in, but nothing of this caliber. To compete in this tournament you have to place high enough in various qualifier tournaments that take place. It doesn't mean you're at the 'top' of this world, but it means you're rather strong."

>>3054059>Ask why they're all competing>Ask Kanozaki if there are less dangerous versions of these tournaments to enter
>>3054068You ask why exactly everyone is competing if it's so dangerous and Kanozaki responds "Well, at the base level it's the same as everything else; Money, fame, and power. If you want a less cryptic explanation, they get paid depending on how they place, anyone who competes in this can show off their power and receive some sort of fame, and they can further hone their prowess in battle through fighting. It's the same as your tournament, just on a much larger scale. These three motivations drive man to do many things."You ask Kanozaki if there are less dangerous versions of these tournaments to enter and he explains "Well, there are official tournaments. They're not as fun and I believe you're banned after you reach a certain level of strength, as to not upset the balance of them, but people very rarely get injured too badly in them. Besides that there are lower level underground tournaments, both at this arena and at smaller ones sponsored by various gangs, dojos, businesses, and all sorts of things. Fukuda would be able to compete at the lowest level of those, although she wouldn't win any of them. I can give you the contact information of a few places, but at the very least you shouldn't be competing in anything like that for the next few years, and possibly not until you're a teenager. You could always hand the information over to those gang friends of yours though, they seem battle-thirsty enough."

Kurosaki looks at you confusedly and says "Why exactly are you here young warrior? Are you the orphaned scion of some fighting clan now?" before Kanozaki explains what happened. The fights then begin to start up. You mostly...>Focus on the fights >Focus on the old men talking>Other
>>3054245>Focus on the old men talking
>>3054367You focus more on the three old men talking than the fighting itself, although the combat is impressive. There are many glowing fists, extremely loud noises, and the arena collapses completely at one point, shattered by someone's fist.The chatting mainly focuses on the tournament and its competitors, and so you find out that these people all fight for a living. They either find one arena and maintain a position as 'champion' of the area, building up popularity and influence, go around the country wherever the tournament circuits take them while trying to grow stronger, or have a job dealing with supernatural disturbances, being bodyguards, working for the Yakuza, etc.Apparently this tournament has a prize pool of many millions of yen and is for the title of champion of this arena. Apparently there are many similar tournaments across the country, and depending on the location they happen 2-4 times a year. To qualify for these tournaments you have to achieve some sort of "ranking" in smaller tournaments or possibly in one on one bouts.The champion gains certain privileges in the area, but also has various responsibilities such as taking on challengers and upholding the area's reputation. They can also be required to compete in larger tournaments depending on the location.Eventually the tournament is over and you've been thoroughly awestruck by both the monstrously strong fighting, and how deep all of this goes. Once the tournament is over it's pretty late and you head back to the orphanage and go to sleep. In the morning one of the workers there goes up to you and says "Congratulations, you're being adopted. Your ride is outside." and you begin packing up your things, full of glee. The worker didn't seem to care much either way, but hey, it's just a job to them.After you pack up everything into your knapsack you go to the front of the orphanage to see Fukuda's dad, Makoto-san, in the same bad disguise as last time. Next to him is... a horse-sized duck? Or more accurately, someone (or multiple people?) in a horse-sized horse costume. You're pretty sure he's just trying to mess with you but... what?

Makoto shrugs and goes "Alright, sure." and you see the duck's body start to split apart from a zipper as Fukuda and Mark clumsily escape from it. They start to lead you towards a car as Makoto takes off his bad disguise.

Why exactly do you think MOST of things you do will be funny?" You see Makoto trying to come up with some sort of explanation but eventually he just stops and says "20,000 yen for the horse-sized duck, I got a discount. 3,000 for the disguise." as you all get in the car to go to your new home Makoto just says "It WAS funny. You know it." Shortly after you hear Mark and Fukuda talking about some incident involving a trampoline, a dog in a scuba suit, and a hose that was apparently for another one of these "jokes". As far as you can tell they're still confused by this.Full of glee, you chat with your new family as the car reaches Fukuda's house. From what you can glean it seems that Central trying to adopt you is what drove Fukuda to bother her parents to think about adopting you. They were thinking about having a third child but were a bit old for that, so it didn't take too much convincing. You arrive at the house and drop your stuff off in a room with an empty bookshelf, a dresser, a bed, a nightstand, and a lamp. There's bed and nightstand are across from the door and next to a large window with blackout curtains. Across from the bed is a dresser and to the left of the door is the bookshelf. From what you've been told it's not completely furnished yet, but it's your room. All for yourself! Wow!

>>3055838>>3055860You spend most of the day restlessly running around the house and yard, excited by the fact that you actually have a family now. With a sister, brother, dad, mom, and everything! You see the trampoline mentioned in the backyard, with an imprint on it shaped like a dog in scuba gear. You have no idea how they managed to get an IMPRINT of the dog got on the trampoline, but you don't really want to know how. From what you recall of the conversation in the car it sounds like the dog was safe though.For lunch you eat pizza with everybody, Fukuda damning Mark's taste in toppings while everybody talks. After lunch you spend more time running around and fall asleep just after having katsudon for dinner. You wake up the next day to see that you are, in fact, still in your room and that this wasn't all a dream. Yay! You go downstairs and see everybody more or less loitering about, besides your new mom, Alice, who is apparently out working.>Show your night vision goggles to your new dad and ask him about them.>Hang out with your new brother.>Hang out with your new big sis.>Buy some furniture for your room yourself, you have the money.>Are gonna have some fun at the arcade.>Will wander around for anything interesting [1d100].>Want to look for a harmonica tutor.>Read the harmonica books and practice for the rest of the day>Try to find where you can buy a normal lockpicking kit and begin learning that>Will play videogames for the rest of the day.>Other>>3055874after watching an old man tear a bear's heart out we all need a dose of wholesomenessalso, you'll all be glad to know that the d20 loot table for silly hats is now a d40

>>3055962>>3055977You take your night-vision goggles to your dad and ask him about them. He pulls them out of the canvas bag, opens the Pelican case, and then you hear him say "Damn, these are standard issue. Not for the good special ops, but they're standard issue for a parts of the JSDF. How'd you get these?"You then tell your dad about how you won it unintentionally at a pachinko parlor and he says "Really? That's some good shit, maybe I'll have to go sometime." he then shows you how to use it, seeming very excited to use one of them again. At the end of your conversation he gives you a helmet to mount it onto, which apparently he has a few of.

You tell Kanozaki that it's time to teach you "the way of the sword" and all that, and he seems confused for a moment until he realizes something. "Oh, I was supposed to do that. Uh, yeah, one sec."Kanozaki comes back holding a katana and shows you a few basic forms before writing them down for you. He also gives you some good tips on swordsmanship in general. You'll have to practice it on your own since Kanozaki won't be in town often, but it should give you a decent foundation. Kanozaki then goes drinking with Kurosaki as you hear them talk about horse racing.

At one point Fukuda comes out and makes some martial arts noises every time you swing the sword for about five minutes. The rest of break passes rather quickly, and you've spent it...[Spend units of time here. You have 10 (this will go back to 8 after your vacation is over) in total.

Then I realized we can use the swordsmanship in person, and use the hand to hand combat with our arms, and be a nightmare of martial arts.We'll need to think of a new name for the combined style though, since I'm sure our sword moves will occasionally be boosted by how our arms can move our body around, pushing/pulling from ground or walls to aid mobility, for instance.

That's if you keep up this level of exercise of course.You do a bit of extra practice with Kurosaki, polishing your technique with the moves you already know and learning a few more on top of that, as well as practicing with your bokuto. You got some tips from Kanozaki, so you may as well use them.You read through more of Journey to the West, making your way through the second volume.

Your dad guesses that it'd probably be yours while your mom says that the will may be invalid due to being an altered state of mind and committing suicide. She also questions whether "whoever finds this can have anything" can be valid no matter what. Ultimately it's up the air unless you contact a lawyer, but if you wanted to just claim the place as your own it doesn't seem like anyone would stop you for the time being. You wouldn't have anything like a deed though, so if someone else tried to do something on the land it'd be a bit dicey. forgot to parse that, whoops>>3057837I can go more in depth on this (ie, actually parse this action) if you guys want but Alice and Makoto are rather laissez-faire and will let you do what you wish with your money, although they may say you're dumb if you do something dumb with it.

You don't really get it and leave him to it with his 2% brokerage fee. You guess you'll see how it goes in your monthly statement.With the beginning of September school has resumed, but so has your thirst for power. You've come armed with 100 chocolate bars in bribes (-8000 yen) and mobilized what's left of the Morales Committee (including you, Hikaru, and Nakano, eight people).

As you go on your way you see him reading a piece of paper while he mutters something about a good horse.You make your way to the hiking trail and manage to get to the home within half an hour. It seems exactly the same as before as far as you can tell. You pass through the rusty iron fence (which noticeably lacks a gate), and walk along the barely noticeable gravel path to reach the front door.

After that you ask if you should bring new colors and just hear the name of a brand of paint followed by "set of 12 colors". You notice that overall the house seemed less ominous than last time, but you're unsure if that's just you or the ghost. It's not exactly welcoming either, so it's probably just you getting used to being in a creepy house in the woods.You make your way back home, the painting in tow, and go to sleep for the night. You wake up the next day, and notice that while you're eating breakfast that Fukuda is just getting back home. She has bags under her eyes and simply says "Had to deal with urgent business. Need to sleep now. Skipping school." You hear dad grunt "Alright, just keep your grades at the same level, I'll call in sick." as your mom just shrugs.You head to school and see that there is now a clear divide. About a third of the grade (mostly in other classes) seems to be focusing on ignoring you, which causes 60% of the grade to start ignoring that group. You've effectively caused a... what is it again.... Cold War. Yeah, sorta like that Cold War thing. Sakamoto seems confused by the situation but doesn't want to interfere.

We're currently going around and gathering an army out of the local gangs for an all-out war."As you have this conversation you stop by bookstore that's only a street down from the school and pick up paperback copies of both The Art of Wars and The Prince for 3000 yen.

He seems slightly confused by this and you hear him mutter "A spirit like that shouldn't be able to... maybe if they lowered their radius of control... alright then, sure, I'll sell it."After this you call Fukuda and ask her where she is because you want to join in. She hesitates for a moment before saying "Don't get hurt too bad." and giving you the location. Eventually you find yourself near the docks, where you recall one of Central's warehouses being. Unlike last time there are hundreds upon hundreds of teenagers gathered near the docks, most of them wielding baseball bats, pieces of lumber, and so on and so forth.

There aren't any windows on the warehouse and all of the doors are closed, so you can't tell what's going on inside.After they surround the warehouse they begin to run towards it. As they do so the metal doors quickly open up, pushed forward by men (and a couple of women) in black suits. This reveals the inside of the warehouse, where you can see various boxes and about 50 people in black suits wielding things such as sashimi knives, metal baseball bats, a couple of katanas, and... ten men standing in a line holding pistols?!

Rolled 98, 52, 77 = 227 (3d100)>>3059739You call Kurosaki and ask how to treat a bullet wound immediately. He says "Keep pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding, keep the victim warm, and check the body for more wounds just in case. Then you wait for medics to arrive. Er, why are you asking this." You respond by telling him that some of the gangsters, including Murata, got shot while trying to fight Central. He doesn't respond before you hear him hang up shortly after.You turn to some of the injured and see a few people treating them, and see that Murata already has a weird-looking bandage near his wound that seems to have stopped the bleeding, and that he has several additional pieces of clothes on top of him. There are also teenagers dealing with various bruises and cuts from people who came later. You can hear the sound of an ambulance in the distance at this point. You...>Leave the scene, you don't need to be seen here.>Stay here, it's not like you'll get in trouble.>Go forward to the fighting>Call the number of that guy from Central and ask about all this>Other(Checking for injuries)

>>3059791c'est la vie
>>3059783>>3059791You keep pressure on the wound, although it already seems like it stopped bleeding due to the weird bandage, and you call the police. You tell the operator that people have been shot near the docks and you just get a response about the police already being dispatched.Some ambulances arrive rather quickly, taking those who were shot away, but leaving most of those with cuts and bruises behind due to, well, manpower. After a few minutes you hear someone yell "The cops are five minutes away! Scatter!" and the crowd begins scattering at a surprisingly fast rate. You now have some vision of the warehouse and now see that there are quite a few people lying on the ground from both sides (who seem to be safe for the most part, besides being a bit beaten and bruised), and that some of the crates in the warehouse seem to have been searched through, some of their contents spread out on the floor. You notice that Fukuda is quite a distance away from you, running at a speed that you can't really match. She's standing next to the leader and second-in-command of the Norths, who both look to be fine. You...>Head into the warehouse for some loot, this is the perfect chance.

>>3060020You rush into the mostly deserted warehouse, looking for some loot. You notice that some of the people from Central are still loitering around the place and manage to avoid them, making it to a corner that nobody is watching.There's a katana on the ground, an open crate full of VCRs, and one crate that's partially opened but that you'd have to search through next to you.

>>3060074You grab the katana and quickly make your way out of the warehouse, avoiding the police as you do so. You manage to go home without someone trying to stop you from running around with a katana and hide it under your bed. Fukuda isn't at home, but she seemed to be fine earlier, so you guess she's alright now. You called her but her phone seemed to be off. You fall asleep shortly after getting home, a bit stressed from what happened earlier today.You wake in the morning and see that Fukuda slept here at least, and she seems fine besides a few cuts and bruises. You go to practice with Kurosaki, who seems more serious than usual, and are only done once it's already after noon.

>>3060148You ask Kurosaki how Murata is doing and says "Well, he just got shot in the pelvis, it's not a big deal. Once they had the wound fixed up I took him back home and gave him some of my type of medicine. It tastes like shit, but it'll get him up and running faster. It's his fault for messing with what are now apparently 'real' yakuza, but still, I'll have to get the money I spent on this wound and bit extra from Central. If they deny me that much then this old man will have to smash some heads and show them why nobody messed with me back in the day."After hearing that Murata is doing fine you begin wandering around town again, surprised by the rather empty streets. Eventually you come upon a manga cafe that doesn't really have any distinct signage and that seems to almost blend into the environment. The place looks comfy and seems like the kind of shop someone runs for fun rather than profits. There aren't any windows showing the inside, only a wooden door with a sign on it.You look at the sign in front and it simply says "500 yen to enter, additional 200 yen per hour. Opens at 8 AM, closes at midnight. Food and computers inside." Opening the door you see a set of stairs on either side of you, one heading up and the other heading down, another wooden door in front of you, and a man watching TV behind a counter while smoking a cigarette. The man is thin, with brown, unkempt hair and a short, scraggly beard. He seems to be in his 30s or 40s. The man turns to you and says "So, you here for the manga cafe or downstairs?" You...>Say you're here for the manga cafe, you may as well check the place out.>Say you're here to head downstairs.>Say you're here for what's upstairs.

You follow him and he shows you to a room full of various boxes and a single table.He says "I guess somebody recommended you to me, here's where we sell both my knockoffs and Chinese ones. They look about the same as the official stuff and they sell for maybe half the price. What'd you come here for. We keep higher demand merchandise in the boxes and if have something you want from one of the catalogs here I can make it for 75% of the retail price." You...>Tell him you don't need anything right now and head to the cafe.>Ask him for Touhou stuff, you guess you can give it to your brother or Aizawa-sensei as a present.

>>3060397You ask the man to show you the Dragon Ball and Touhou goods. He grabs a few boxes and puts them up on the table, showing you see quite a few items. There are posters, wall scrolls, CDs, books, figurines, mugs, notebooks, and for some reason a few pillowcases. You recognize all of the Dragon Ball characters, but none of the Touhou ones really stand put to you. The only constant for Touhou is that they seem to all be girls. The most common ones seem to be a blue girl with wings and a red shrine maiden.

(-13,000 yen)As you leave you hear some excited cheering from the basement of the store. Sounds like they're having a party down there or something.You head back home to talk to Fukuda but it seems like she's gone already. You call her phone but don't get a response, she must be meeting up with the rest of the gang leaders or something.

>>3061458You hang up the poster and the wall scroll in your room before heading to Mark's room to hang out. He's reading something on his bed when you enter, and he turns towards you and says "Hey, sup?" when you enter. You show him the figurines and offer one to him, and he takes the blue one with wings before thanking you.As you chill in Mark's room for a few hours you learn quite a few things. Apparently Touhou is based off a video game where you dodge a bunch of bullets, and not some anime like you figured. You also get various comments on anime, manga, and video games. Mark also mentions this relatively new light novel called The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya that he thinks is gonna make it big eventually. After talking for a while with Mark, Fukuda still seems to be out. She must be occupied with all that gang war stuff.

Also, I was planning on giving a heads-up later but since the plot is moving faster than I expected I'm just gonna say it here. The game will probably be put on indefinite hiatus after another 2 to 3 threads (this depends on pacing, it's just an estimate), as I mostly ran it to get used to running on /qst/ again and wasn't sure if I would be running it for 3 threads or 30 at the time. I've thought of a good point to end it (although if I wanted to it would be fine to continue it from there), and will be running another idea which I've had for maybe half a year and which I plan on running for a longer amount of time (the minimum would be around 15-20 threads depending on player interest, and until the natural end of the plot if interest in it holds). If I still want to run something after that ends, I'll consider to returning to this (if there's any interest left).
>>3063952You ask the two whether they want to know the location of the mansion and Kurosaki thinks for a second before saying "Yes, it would help to know where that ghost is. Could you show me?

After that you lead them to the hiking trail and, with a bit of trouble, to the mansion.As you approach the mansion Kurosaki seems to be uneasy and says "Are you sure this is the same mansion from before? Rather than a neutral spirit, I feel something... odd, about the place. It almost feels as if an evil spirit is lying dormant right now, waiting for the right time to rise up. Maybe this is something caused by whatever is influencing the area. It would make sense for a ghost to begin turning malicious if enough spirits of malice began to latch onto it. I'll leave the paints inside but I don't recommend that you come here until the problem is dealt with. In fact, I recommend that you don't enter the forest at all until then." You...>Take his advice to heart, he knows more than you.>Disregard his advice, you know best and this place is safe.

>>3063988>We respect his advice, of course, but we can still try to reason. "She is nice to me."
>>3064008You take Kurosaki's advice but still think that there's room to reason with him here. You tell him that she's nice to you and he stares at you for a moment and simply says "The evil spirits that wander this world can turn the good into murderers and ruin lives with no warning. I don't wish to see something happen to you, as I've already lost enough people for one lifetime. Avoid this house and this forest until I've dealt with the problem."You stay outside the mansion while he goes inside and drops off the paint, and head home after they locate the place on the map. You ask whether the ghost said anything to him and he simply replies "It's still dormant."After a bit of an awkward outing, you head back home for the night. After dinner your parents tell you to be home early on Thursday. After a bit of thinking as to why that would be, you remember that your 7th birthday is on Thursday! You've never actually celebrated your birthday, so you're really excited.Tonight Fukuda doesn't show up at all and her phone seems to be turned off.

Instead of finding an empty street, like you'd expect at night, you instead find a large group of men in suits standing in front of a burning building.

Luckily Goto is near the edge of the group of people, and he only notices you once you're already pretty close.Goto's eyes seem to spread as wide as saucers as he watches you approach. You feel the sword begin to push against you and Goto begins to move as you draw near, but whatever he does isn't enough to counteract the force of six arms pushing the katana towards him.A weird feeling travels down your (literal) arms as the sword begins to slice through flesh, pushing into his abdomen. A loud scream echoes throughout the place as everyone turns to look towards you.Various looks of shock and confusion pour towards you, the silence only being broken by Goto's mix of screaming and sobbing. The man with red hair throws a cold look at you and says "I recommend that you give yourself up right now before this escalates further."

Rolled 37, 62 = 99 (2d100)>>3064473>Put all of your energy into pushing the katana into his body. He's so close, this will be your win! [2d100, disadvantage]I just finished seeing the second Wreck it Ralph movie, so my appetite for violence has diminished and I'm less willing to permanently bloody a child's hands. However, Fukuda could be dead and I don't think we could easily comply with her killers.>>3064862Thanks for also voting.
>>3064862>>3064891You push your katana towards their body with the force of six arms, refusing to give in this easily. You see the man's eyes widen as he attempts to move away, but before he escapes your range completely the katana slices through his shirt, leaving a large, red cut behind. You don't think it hit anything on the inside, but the man appears to be bleeding pretty heavily.You throw a smug look at him, saying "I...shall submit...WHEN YOU DIE!" as you have your invisible arms chase after him with the katana. He quickly stumbles backwards, escaping your range, and you see him pull out a pistol. Several loud bangs reverberate through your ears as the man fires it off until only a loud, repeating clicking noise is left. You don't think any of the bullets hit you until you try to move and notice that there doesn't seem to be much strength in your body. You look down and see a red splotch on the lower-right portion of your shirt. You feel around for a moment and can feel an exit wound on the other side. Oh god. That can't be good.

>>3064912This because I can't think of anything better.This is all pretty bad, but I'm just wondering what happened to Hikaru.
>>3064912>>3064960OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk0gm_Z81bEYou manage to dial Kurosaki's phone despite your bullet wound and hear it connect after a moment. Although it seems oddly distant, you hear Kurosaki tiredly mutter "Hello?". He's there. That's a relief. You can close your eyes now. Each word seems laborious to choke out, but you say "They'll feel your wrath." before slumping over, exhausted.You hear Kurosaki saying something, but you can't really make it out. In fact, there's a lot of noise around you, but you can't really make any of it out. All you can focus on is your overwhelming desire to sleep, the pain of your wound, and the feeling of rain beginning to drip onto you. It seems like there's a drizzle. That's good... at least... if there's rain... the fire might go out...You wonder how Fukuda is doing right now.........good night...To be continued next thread
