(Starting the thread before I go to work, so will be a bit till more posts)Interlude: It's a Good Job MateThomas H. Dooley, otherwise known as Kayek -Man, was considered a public menace by Canberra and Australia at large. Australia was different from North America in the fact that it was not part of any PRT branch, but paid into the organizations coffers to receive aid in the event of Endbringer attacks. A side effect of this was that while Australia had plenty of capes, many people did not bother with any form of secret identity as well. Plenty of villains could commit crimes as they pleased, and disappear into the Outback until the heat died off. That was until the government started issuing bounties, but that's another story. Thomas H. Dooley was a conservation officer for many years. He woke up early in the morning, made coffee kissed his wife and son goodbye, hopped in his camper, and drove out into the Outback to keep an eye out for kangaroo poachers. All of it changed when the cape villain Bushfire was fleeing from a bank robbery, and found the Dooley house to be good sport. Thomas returned late in the afternoon to find his home wreathed in flames, with one charred lump of flesh with one smaller cradled in it's arms.Thomas did more than trigger, he went batshit insane. The man hopped back into his camper, and tore off into the Outback. 3 days later he emerged with a large grin, a boombox, and Bushfire's head. His powerset was a Mover/Striker, where he could commit great acts of acrobatics and speed. He could commandeer any vehicle with surprising ability, and the power to make land any shot was nothing short of a miracle.If only he was not batshit insane. Kayek-Man would constantly be a public nuisance, drinking in public, assaulting police officers once told to stop. Numerous break-in's, drunken destruction, and not to mention the constant stream of drugs he consumed. Strangely enough he participated in every Endbringer fight."'Ey, Kayek-head, why don't you just run back to the Outback mate, not like you're gonna do any good here." Ironhead, an Australian changer says to the strange cape.>Kayek-Man POV"Oi cunt, I can run faster than your black dad. Besides, I cans feel something is gonna happen with that big furry cunt over there" You say, pointing towards the massive form of the Case 53 cape barreling through buildings as it makes a beeline towards the Simurgh.'Come on Ironhead you daft cunt, just fucking run, you heard the warning. That Famine bastard said everyone within 100 yards will die. Let me have this.'"Kayek-man, come on. We need to fall back." "No you cunt, I'm standing right here and watching."The tall form of Ironhead shrugs, before capturing Kayek-man under an arm, and begins to run in the opposite direction of the massive cape that is now currently pulling the Simurgh towards it. Kayek-man begins a tirade of red-hot vitriol. >Cont
>>3262181"Put me down you shit-eating scum facker, I shoot my semen all over your fat mum you cunt. ""No can do mate."'Why won't you let me die you shit? Let it mean something.' As Ironhead jostles you with his running, you look up to see the colossus that is Famine tear the Simurgh in half. The massive beastie stuff the old bird in his maw, and a great crimson light wraps around him. A thought crosses your mind as you black out from exhaustion.'We can kill 'em... well fack, I guess I can die to Leviathan a bit easier.'
>>3262187very noice, do we also get so see the other capes (Alexandria,Eidolon) or the PRT´s reaction?
>>3262187>>3262181We don't deserve the greatness that is Kayek-Man

>>3262218Could we take a person back in time with us like how we can do so with the ability that allows us to turn into smoke? If yes, could they be with us, or would they go back in time to the point they were at at the time we marked in time?
>>3262898I imagine the ability is strict as all hell in every single way just because savepoints are fucking op no matter what.
>>3262898Oh hell no, no paradoxes allowed. I am not fucking with that.

>>3263721Might've needed sleep
>>3263724I thought QMs didn't need sleep.
>>3263855It's code for "recharge his batteries"
You know we're cool and all, but I want to get Steve some capes to rot and recycle too. I know with enough power, he can do shit on par with Famine VOID'ing Simurgh.We just need an easy supply of enemy capes and tinkertech that won't be missed, and we already did that with the Empire...
>>3263875Come to think of it, we never asked Steve if he can talk to Abaddad and reclaim shards.
>>3263881We know OOC that he has ROT RECYCLE while Famine is CONSUME RESET. I figure after eating Simurgh, we definitely need to touch base with him again about all this "mission from Abbadad to destroy the planet to save it" thing
>>3263884Quickly, what are the 4 Rs of Entity Environmentalism?RESET, RECOVER, RETURN, RECYCLE
>>3263887 Alright, are you the fucking Simurgh, because I swear to god you've been in my quest notes.
>>3263888Depends, does she know that snow is cocaine?
>>3263888>>3263887CONSUME = FamineROT = Pestilence??? = DeathPILLAGE??? = WarThere's a lot of synonyms you can use. Not sure why most of them are R words. REBUILD? RECONSTRUCT? RAVAGE? RAZE?
>>3263891Lung definitely does :^)
>>3263892>Not sure why most of them are R wordsAlliteration>spoilerNotice how these words focus on the idea that Abaddad is fixing shit what's broke? That might be why they're all positive. Abaddad is trying to save the species that Zion and Eden exploit.
>>3263895or at least use them less wastefully, because lets be real [Warrior] doesn't know how to conserve energy that was her thing. now he is running around all by him self all depressed cant cope and lashing out at everything. some times the elder gods have to step in and go n̡̮͍̱̦͐o̡͔̖͆͂ͣͫͩ̍n̟̝̫͔͋ͩ́͂̔̓ͬ̏̂-̫̗̥̙̓́E̸̢̺̓ͫ̏u̗͔̿̍̃̿̕c̙̿̂̉̐̎̂ͨ̇̋l͍̩͓͎̤͙ͮ̓̕̕ḭ̫̖̖͇̣͔̳̟̋ͧ͆ͯ͛̚d̛̺̦̭̹ͩ͆́̚ȅ̸͕̯͖̼̞̿ͫ̊ͫͪ̾͗a̫̖͔̜͓͙̳̣ͫ̀̔̓̈̉ͪ̾͘̕͡n͉̤̯͓̤̥̹͔̭ͪ on something that is just being dumb
>>3263906By all accounts and word of Meddles, Abaddad actually cares about the little guys. He's trying to set up cycles that don't result in everybody's death.
We Interludes soon?
So if anyone here has started Worm for the first time, where are you at in the story? Initial thoughts on how things are going?
Checkity check check 1 2 3
>>3264092All clear, we are receiving you.
>>3264269Come on dude, you don't bump on this board. It takes two weeks for a thread to fall off
>>3264281Hey don't give him shit for bumping the boardBumping is never a Bad thing
>>3264352Poor canary, I hope that us eating the Simurgh makes her court case go a bit better.
>>3264399She might still be in the Birdcage at this time in canon, not sure where her court case fits in the timeline.
>>3264432I think it was sometime after Taylor made her debut and that was a few months after Simurgh fucked Canberra so she should still be ok.
>>3264452if her court case STILL goes to shit we should go break her out
>>3264486I imagine killing an endbringer should net us a favor with the PRT. We could just bring up a phone and go like "Hey, you know the Canary case? Yeah no that's won't be happening if you know whats good for you."
>>3264495How would we possibly know about that in character, that's total meta knowledge
>>3264501The news, any thinker?Court cases aren't exactly private.
>>3264503Why would we even care, we haven't watched the news since thread 2 and there's zero reason for us to ask a thinker "hey do you know about Canary, a person i have literally never met." We don't even know this person exists, and we're going to go digging into her court case? Seems like a stretch
>>3264511Eh I dunno. With the Simurgh dead she'll probably have an easier time anyway because the only real reason she got shafted as hard as she did with such minimal backlash was people comparing her to the Simurgh, and this was right after a Simurgh attack too so it was fresh in peoples minds.
>>3264514I mean yeah i don't care one way or another if she gets off, I'm saying that it doesn't seem likely that, with where we are with Famine as a character and in the plot, we would go getting involved in court cases or calling in PRT favors for someone we've never met
>>3264533Although I just remember that plan Accord made has us bust into the birdcage so even if she doesn't get off there's still a chance of us meeting her or something.
>>3264551I'm pretty sure that eating Simurgh fucked up our chances of getting put in the cage. They know we're a killer, they know we power up by eating the dead and they know we fucking ate an Endbringer. What kind of tool would think putting us there is a good idea?I guess we need to use Dragon's sibling, but that's meta.
>>3264567It's an Accord plan, he always makes side plans or whatever if something doesn't work out.
>>3264591You think Accord planned on us eating Simurgh?
>>3264758Accord plans take into account everything, that is literally his power.
>>3264511We could start watching the news now.
>>3265307Nah man, HWM might update with 2/4 interludes overnight. Must be busy right now from the fucking job he's got.
>>3265334It's been 6 hours. We're doomed. It's over boys, go home.
How do you guys think children would react to Famine?
>>3266422Depends on how he acts near them. Scared at first but once they see he's a big softy they'll probably think he's the coolest thing since sliced bread.
>>3266493You mean Before or after he let's them Ride on his shoulders?
>>3266550Before. If he lets them ride on his shoulders he's going to be the most popular cape in the city.After all, he literally ate the Nazi's, that's more than the PRT ever did.
>>3266334I'm alive, just was a rough day that was drowned a river of vodka
>>3266573Then again, he literally ate the Nazis, that's more than the PRT ever did.Also he's an S-Class villain, next to the Slaughterhouse 9.speaking of

>>3267463Yes, Faultline and her crew of case 53s is based.
do you guys think us eating and endbringer will decrease the villain population of the bay or increase it?
>>3267887Decrease I guess? A dead endbringer would make people a bit more hopeful, fewer triggers. Merchants might get a tad bigger though.
>>3267893i meant from outside, do you think that there will be more villains moving into the bay or more villains moving out of the bay?
>>3267887>>3267893I don't think trigger event frequency will get any less, because Earth Bet is a fucking hellhole of a planet because Wildbow. On the other hand, more people who trigger worldwide deciding to become heroic, is much more likely after what we just pulled off. >inb4 new Emdbringers spawn because Eidolon subconsciously goes "awww, I wanted a good fight, come on!" or his shard auto-awakens one or two from preexisting templates in response to counter Famine>>3267917That I'm not so sure about. I feel like it would depend on the villains involved. Maybe most would decide to stay but not be as villainous, knowing Famine is around? Either out of respect, fear, or some other mixed feelings in general? A lot of interesting dynamics and stuff HWM can write or explore with all this.
>>3267922>inb4 Eidolon books it to Brockton and starts hunting down Merchants to fight us>inb4 Lung shows up because nobody gets to kick our ass except him
>>3267973Nice friendly three-way capefight
If all the crabs are dead, does that mean we lose the benefits eating here daily (45 hunger)?
>>3267077>>3267304>>3267463>People letting their empathy for halfway decent people (who may actually try to fight us later) stop them from CONSUMINGAbaddad is disappoint
How possible is it to expect our next "sibling" will be picked up by the S9 or maybe Coil?
>>3269386>he thinks Abaddad is an asshole like Zion and Eden who would tell you to eat other people for personal profitno, anon, you are the disappointment>>3269440Unlikely, barring exceptional intervention by Zion. Abaddad would choose people we'd be likely to pick up.
>>3269455Peace in the cycle can only be obtained by superior Power anon!
>>3269473We could really go for eating all of Leet's junked tinker tech.Besides, there's one thing we need to remember. There's still more Krauts to eat.Does anyone have ideas on what would be the tinktech made by Famine would be? I do after eating The Ziz herself
>>3269490>spoilerI'm sorry to say our power doesn't work that way. We get rewards for meeting reclamation quotas, rather than getting the powers of reclaimed shards
>>3269490The real question is what an Abaddon shard tinker would be like.
>>3269547Maybe Death is a Tinker who specializes in poisons. It sounds boring, but it's an option
>>3269547>>3269560My own ideas for Death and War were War being a tinker whose specialization is direct counters (like a single Tinkertech that fucks over a single shard) or maybe just more general power-specific tech, like something that denies Master effects. Speaking of, I personally really like the idea of Death being some Master/Stranger that forces people to commit toaster bath. The idea of Death, compared to the other horsemen, just being an ever-present force that doesn't outright kill but is more like "dread it run from it" sounds cool as fuck. That's the one similarity between Famine, Pestilence and War:They all lead to Death.
>>3269618Maybe Dadaddon is death.
>>3269618>Famine goes through a second trigger event >Abbadad jailbreaks FamineDo we become a literal black hole?
>>3269713>DadaddonThis is why we use "Abaddad"
>>3269618Death refers in particular to "natural" one i.e. death from old age so, rather than poison, he'd have maybe accelerated aging.
>>3270012So something like Grateful Dead? That would be a pretty neat power.
>>3270012Cancerman. Can cause extremely fast spreading and resistant to treatment tumors in anyone he touches.
>>3270032do a montage man and age people to deathhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2Ca9cQ3GV4scion would freak if that affected shards(dont kill the guy just his power)
soo who do you guys think we get? Death or war?
>>3270744War, death seems endgame.
>>3270744War.Death has always suppose to be the final horseman. Even back when conquest was a horseman.
Will have Alexandria's interlude out by tonight.Sorry gents. I've just been exhausted these past few days. Using this interlude sequence as a bit of a breather and for planning
>>3271380It's fine dude, sometimes life be like that.
who wants to go to Africa and murder a bunch of capes?
>>3271471hey that's racist but yeah I'm down
>>3271471I want to stop by Elisburg first
>>3271573Maybe some time during our "We killed the Simurph" party in Canberra we can ask Strider or any other teleporting Capes if they could teleport us to Africa, or even Elisburg like >>3271593 suggested. Maybe even stick with us for additional payment? Geez I wonder how much their services would cost.Oh if we were to go to Africa do you guys think we could recruit some more capes and take them back with us to the bay?
>>3271380There was a rule that we could carry anything in our Smoke for so long as we have a free hand available or something yeah? We still have the brick nokia. Now that we have a set of extra arms does this mean we can carry more stuff in our phase form? Like guns?
Hold on. Maybe we won't have to pay anyone an absurd amount of cash. If we could work something out with Alexandria then she could fly us to Africa. Provided we survive the trip with how fast she can travel. Might owe her and the PRT a favor for it though.
>>3271603I guarantee you, Famine will be recieve many free drinks from here on out. PRT public relations team is flipping their shit in how a villain is polling better than some of their top heroes.
>>3271830did any of our guys back home place any bets on the odds of us winning?
>>3271830And just who might those top heroes be?
>>3271838In canon I believe there is a fund from victims of endbringers for any cape to kill one. Same for many villain capes (heartbreaker, etc). To be fair, many people believed that Endbringers could not be killed, you could only break even when one showed up. Bets would have been viewed as being in very poor taste.>>3271873Armsmaster, Chevalier, many others.
>>3271911Well, they're not wrong. Chev is one of the best fucking characters of Worm.
>>3271911>a fund from victims of endbringers for any cape to kill one.Oh god were turbo rich now aren't we.
>>3271911>In canon I believe there is a fund from victims of endbringers for any cape to kill one.Time to fund our every growing fishing empire.>get royalties for Famine toys and action figures.>use money to expand fishing empire.
>>3271943>Famine action figure with built in vacuum action!
What should we do with our new found wealth? Because I think we should hire a teleporter or transport cape under contract to work for us.
>>3271952Open up a crab restaurant with a gift shop.
>>3271965Definitely a restaurant. What should we call it?
>>3272089Either "Famine's Crab Shack" or maybe something fancier like "Revelation Bistro" to tie into our horsemen of the apocalypse theme.
To to PR ourselves into the world's sweetheart
>>3271830Fucker deserves it, taking down what most consider an unbeatable natural disaster humanity has just had to live with for a decade, and on his first endbringer fight too. The boys back in merchant territory must be going crazy watching their lieutenant eating Simurgh.
>>3272453>Brockton Bay has been having a weeklong hobo rave since we landed
>>3272493Wow that's impressive, we've only been gone... what, an hour tops?
>>3272089Scales of Justice (the Pale Rider in the Book of Revelations carries a pair of weighing scales)Extra features for each Endbringer eaten by Famine:>Simurgh - Free fortune after each meal>Behemoth - Benihana-style cooking with lots of fire>Leviathan - Fun with sauces and other liquids>Tohu/Bohu - Order a few days ahead and get an edible artwork>Khonsu - Customers can do time-trials for a chance to earn discounts>etc.
>>3272520I love it. It also exemplifies how little of a shit we give.
>the Simurgh's physical voice is finally heard for the first time on Earth Bet>it is a scream of the purest terror and agony>a professional opera soprano's cry would be a pale facsimile of the sound, beyond anything human vocal cords can ever hope to produce>it is primal fear in audio form, and it emanates from the unkillable bird bitch who brainwashes people and causes unspeakable shit wherever she strikes, as she is mercilessly annihilated into the black hole that is Famine>slowly, Skidmark does pic related as the rest of the Merchants follow suit
>>3272556basically and or this
>>3272628>Red: boss did you just see that?! FAMINE JUST ATE SIMURGH!>....>boss?>Skidmark's face
>A Memory Long PastThe message was sent out with her blessing, and she floated in the air beside her two long-time comrades above the remains of the battlefield. The massive beast that was Famine surged towards The Simurgh, roaring his rage.Keith, ever the idealist spoke up first. "Was this a good idea, can you imagine if he was changed by Simurgh. We'll have to evacuate completely. Not to mention his damn Trump ability." His blue mask moves as he scrunches his face up. She never understood why he choose a visor instead of something more protective, he was the only one of the remaining three that could still be injured. While yes, his breaker state could heal him it was still a weak point that bothered her."Did you effect that his scream had on her, I'd say it's worth the risk." You say.David remained silent, his green cloak flapping in the wind. She could tell he was brooding. "Eidolon...?" Rebecca started."It's his first fight, and he managed to inflict that much damage in only 7 minutes. His scream was the only reason we were slapping her around. How many have died in all of these battles... and he shows up and makes a mockery of it." He growls out."D-Eidolon, everyone that helps is an essential one. Just imagine him helping against Behemoth. You can't be like this towards every new cape that happens to be impressive. Let's just watch." "If he drives her off, we had a good fight on our hands, if he dies, we lose a villain. Nothing but good things can come of this." He says to himself almost.He huffs, and your eyes go back to the fight. Famine had finally closed the distance. He skids to a stop while The Simurgh attempt to leave. His mouth drops open wide, and with a sickening display twists and snaps wider."What in the hell..." Keith says as the corpses of the newly slain and reanimated begin flying towards Famine's gaping maw. The Simurgh desperately is fighting the pull while she screams."I must say... he does have a good plan." David says. You almost whip your head in shock, but keep your eyes glued upon the scene."What do you mean?""I suggested to him that he went to go take care of Simurgh's device, but he seems to be drawing her in to get some good hits on her. With his brute rating and her new weakness, he could deal some damage." David does not complement people often, it's something that ego does not allow him to do. Groups of people sure, but singular capes are uncommon for him to find value in.You suppress a shudder as bony fingers slide out of Famine's throat, and he wraps his claws around her. Then the noise begins as the fingers lurch forwards, stabbing into The Simurgh and silencing her.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHbW6t2n2uw @0:30 >As well as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppiGTLqfaWc @59:34 then @1:13:00After a minute of the disturbing symphony, Famine rips the Endbringer in two, and eats her. He falls to his knees and begins to radiate red light.>Cont.
>>3272816You turn towards your two friends to see your expression of shock plastered upon their faces as well. Eidolon is the first to recover."Alexandria, Legend, I want you to contact the quick response teams, the fight is over. We need to prep a press event now and on our terms. Quick tally dead and wounded. I will go greet our Endkiller here. I'm going to need a team to see how he may be effected by his consumption." His tone is different, almost... angry. As you fly away, you see Famine squirming in a cocoon of warping light, and can hear his gut-wrenching screams of agony as it seems his body is burning away. His immense bulk is slowly shrinking. Eidolon floats above him, arms crossed. Seemingly waiting for Famine to come to. A thought goes through your mind after hearing the scream. You remember everything since you gained your powers. Every detail, nothing forgotten. Anything before it not so much, you remember the important things. Your birthday, name, your family's names. You remember your father's lying eyes as he told you after the next treatment you would get better, as if you could not see the tears in his eyes. As if you could not hear his screams of sorrow and pain as he pummeled the wall in the hallway in the hospital before sliding down into a heap. Famine screams like your father, a man that has lost far to much...The one thing that haunts you, as you fly over the mostly untouched Canberra (for an Endbringer battle), the one thing you can not remember is your father's face.
>>3272816radiant red light means war is coming?
>>3272875>EndkillerI love it, we gotta milk that title.
>>3272875>the one thing you can not remember is your father's face.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>3272876 While yes, that is the next cape I will be sending your way, do not expect him to come right to you. Abbadon is picking the most qualified, not some smuck in Brockton Bay. Also sometimes the curtain's are just blue, not everything is foreshadowing. I'm not clever enough for that.
>>3272875>>3272894Oh god wait I just realized.
>>3272901didn't anons wanted to fuck her? I know it was a joke but like
>>3272913>We're at the PRT for some reason, debriefing or some shit>We see Rebecca>Sudden flashback, "R-Rebecca is that you"Like fuck I think we even guessed it jokingly last thread.
>>3272875>Eidolon's pissy over us eating one of his "worthy opponents"We need to eat them all boys. Kill Eidolon from osmosis, have somenice venison jerky.I imagine Dragon is going to be spending a lot of time trying to work on anti-Famine escape/break-in procedures.
>>3272934should we be discussing how to counteract dragon's containment methods, or would the QM pick up on them?
>>3272939We have our own AI that dragon doesn't know about, I think we'll be fine.
>>3272939>>3272934>>3272946 That will be part of the next interlude :The Dragon.I won't meta-DM if you don't meta-game ;)Also to note, the birdcage is terrifying. A prison suspended inside a hollow mountain by only pipes and supports that bring in food, water, and amenities. The void outside the prison has drones to stop anyone from escaping, but let me tell you. GL17CH is the key, and I think you guys skimmed over the reason why.
>>3272956Its because GL7TCH is technically Andrew Richter isn't it? Or at least a form of him. He'd theoretically be able to fuck with Dragon's restrictions.
>>3272966 http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3202920/ Post: 3219303
>>3272980Oh it just doesn't have any restrictions. Wow we are busted.
>>3272992 Well the fact that it is Andrew does come into play, but consider what Dragon is capable of with restrictions.
>>3272980Oh yeah, the one where BAGRAT IS GREY BOY
>I come back after an hour and a half>Eidolon is a hair-trigger away from fucking us up for stealing his kill>Rebecca>Sheer GL17CH Attack has no weaknessesI can't leave this fucking thread alone for a second, can I.Meddles you writing genius I love you please don't stop
>>3273000GL17CH is going to make life hell for Cauldron isn't he?
>>3273024We need to teach GL17CH how to shitpost at secret societies when we just fuckin release him into the wild.
I just realized/remembered something. The Fallen will absolutely despise/fear us for ending one of their gods.And Meddles remind me. Is Famine's shard still under restrictions? Could it go through another Trigger Event? How far does the escalation go power wise for the Endkiller?
>>3273065 What do you think happens everytime you get an upgrade. Afraid no second Trigger Event, whatever happened in that cave between you and Abbadon removed that chance. As for how far does the escalation goes... how much power can you send to Abbadon?
>>3273089Enough power to make the Sleeper wake up an see what all the commotion is? Enough to make even more memey material than Skitter?
>>3273065>The FallenOH YEAH>>3273118>implying Sleeper isn't actually the aftermath of Famine fighting Grey Boy after his second trigger
Alright so what do we do with the fund money?I say that we go and take all the boys to the boardwalk, rent out a all the restaurants and have a god damn fine dining party. And we'll go to a whole sale and order beds and mattress for everyone.You guys realize this means we can go out and get a burger with fries?
>>3273160All of this, and then we should spend some time showing up the municipal authorities.
>>3273160We could refurbish the old E88 stronghold into a housing unit. With clean running water. I don't remember if Squealer managed to rig up a purifier in the shipyard, but we could probably fit a purifier in there somewhere. In a few days I think we should take some of our earnings to do some overseas recruitment. Specifically for Tinkerers.
>>3273174We can rebuild the docks and dare anyone to stop us. Restart the fishing industry. I mean, we can fucking eat all the shipwrecks if someone can levitate them for us or corrosion can just... Disintegrate them.
>>3273178I think we should start fixing the docks til after we kill Leviathan. We'd just have to fix the docks again. Why would we want to eat the shipwrecks?
>>3273178Why destroy the shipwrecks when Squealer can use them?
>>3273201Cause I'm spitballing and you raise a better idea than mine. Nice
>>3273184Leviathan is still a ways off probably, so let's go over snacks that still are within the Bay. Remnants of Empire making a comeback, the Undersiders, and other minor/solo career capes.I think we'd be able to make an offer to plenty that they could never refuse. And shit, may as well be the refuge for the Case 53s of the Bay. The Anders family probably doesn't have a high opinion on Famine you think?It'll be fun meeting with the Wards in general
>>3273225>spoiler 1gee, I wonder>spoiler 2I don't think they'll let an S-Class villain within a light-year of a Ward. The parents would trigger from the stress.
>>3273225I want to see vista, kid win and the others reaction when they realise that they almost had to fight this guy
>>3273225We don't necessarily have to kill the other gangs left in the Bay do we? Think telling them to quit their racket or leave under threat of cannibalism would be enough to convince them to stop? Only asking because of the apparent Cape density in Africa.>>3273234Someone should bring a camera.
>>3273235We could also absorb and re-educate them.
>>3273234An even better one:>Shadow Stalker's FW she hears hungered growling nearby during one of her night patrols from all around her before the SCREAM>Taylor's FW when she sees Sophia who she despises so goddamn much being pushed around in a wheelchair. Looking ragged, broken and weak. The lower half of her body gone completely>Panaceas FW she's called in to help African communities that've been plagued by Famine.
>>3273257>Panaceas FW she's called in to help African communities that've been plagued by Famine.That's doubly funny.
>>3273257Yeah, I think Sophia's pretty spooked about someone else having the same power as her and more.Sophia interlude when
>>3273261 HE'S THE BIGGEST PREDATOR. And to be honest, the ripples from your presence are interesting.
We should also see what are the limits of Steve's breaker form and how many ghosts he can spawn.>>3273089Are second triggers a good thing or bad thing?
>>3273268Is the dragon interlude next?
>>3273257>That second spoilerWas... was that pun intentional anon>>3273269...Le sigh
https://www.fishingnortheast.net/fishing-resources-links/what-how-tos/sw-fish-identification/Anyone got any clue what species of fish, crustaceans and other commercial sea creatures like in the Northeast Ocean of Boston?
>>3273269Second Triggers are good but it's bad if you're Triggering again, since your power wasn't good enough to keep you from getting into the situation that caused your First Trigger.
>>3273290Well, not the EXACT situation. But something similar to itJailbroken Famine sounds like a fun feeding frenzy
I wonder how much skidmark and squealer want and need to be drug lords or if they'd use our clout to become legit businessmenSuck on this Pigot
Meddles, what is your opinion on the Famine's Crab Shack idea?
>>3273353Crazier things have happened. Go with it, you have the manpower and funds for the startup. I'll have fun writing it. Of course rolls will be required, and a new enemy will be introduced... the toughest that Famine has ever faced. The HEALTH INSPECTOR
>>3273362bro we aint no chumps we gonna go for them michelin stars a health inspector is not gonna be a problem
>>3273362Hardly.Our Void power sucks in all organic matter in the area, although you probably mean edible here, since organic means “has carbon” so things like steel and plastic are organic. Evacuate the food and people, turn on the Void, and we just hoover up all the vermin, mold, trash, dirt and so on leaving the restaurant spotless.
>>3273307I'd actually be cool with gathering up the gang and going legit. Go from drug dealing to a full on crabbing company and food chain entrepreneur. I mean what is the PRT gonna do, STOP the SSS-class cape loved by the world from giving up villainy? Hell I would not be surprised if they weren't already writing up a full pardon in exchange for giving up the criminal life, because at this point there shouldn't be any hero besides Eidelon who would want to fight Famine. That would be suicide.
>>3273569Organic means "has Carbon and Hydrogen".
“In chemistry, an organic compound is generally any chemical compound that contains carbon.”From Wikipedia.
>>3273571I’m pretty sure they’re going to need a new power classification for Famine and Co.

>>3274202>our political stanceweed keeps me less murderous but does give me the munchies and that's why the tax breaks for the food producers
>>3274227that just might work. might be worth consulting with Skidmark and the gang with.

>>3274309...we need to do this. we need to do this now.

Going legit and working at a merchant crab shack beats having to fight cops and capes.Merchant 1: I'm just saying, this gang thing went into a weird direction.
>>3274402Well at least it's Healthier than Fugly Bobs (it's the Worm McDonalds equivalent)
When hwm decided to use the merchants because they're an interesting and underused faction I don't think this is a quite what he had in mind.I think it's funny as hell but you all remember the murder mosh pit they hosted after leviathan? After reading all of the completely fucked up shit the merchants did in canon it's hard to see skidmark as a guy just faking it, his shard makes him totally insane
>>3274498I think that was more to do with the drugs with the shard egging him on.
>>3274498at least HWM's version of the Merchants are a little less fucked up, though I wonder if any of our guys would willingly risk triggering in the hopes of getting powers. I can image the most desperate drug addled ones and maybe some of the ex-military guys would go for it.Assuming we can get our hands on some Formulas from Caludron......OOOOOOOR!!!>>3273362What are the odds we can get that one power that lets us give others powers? Was it Judgement?
>>3274309>Famine starts setting up massive homeless shelters>Famine keeps interrupting people by staring at them and licking his lips loudly >Famine for re-election, He’s Hungry For A Better City
>>3274517>I wonder if any of our guys would willingly risk triggering in the hopes of getting powersImpossible. Expecting to trigger causes it to not happen.
>>3274546I meant through those cauldron vials
Then after we become mayor we can open up the cargo shipping business up again. We got the manpower to fix a cargo ship. Only issue is figuring out how we're gonna pull them out the sea.
>>3274498To be fair Famine has been a pretty stabilising figure I feel. Whereas canon Skidmark pushed further and further to desperately break out, here he's got powerful lieutenants training the guys, finding different sources of business, and making the grunts feel like they're fighting for something.
>>3274935 At work so only gonna respond to this, but basically yes. Canon Skidmark was pushed to the brink, forced to live place to place, fighting teeth infections, meth addiction, and manage the Merchant's. It's a wonder he did as well as he did. He had to do whatever he could to give himself an edge, hence the murdermosh pit. I'd say he would be close to a second trigger had the Slaughterhouse not gibbed him.

>>3275270Contessa is fully Italian.Alexandria is Ameriblack iirc

>>3275330Ha! The PRT are gonna hate it.

>>3275361>He didn't do drugs but he was a gun for hire in a cartel>Which explains his easy acceptance and adapting to people high off their gourd>It's because he already lived through something similar even if he doesn't remember

>>3275555That was us? I thought that was some different dimension shenanigans or a alien PoV.
>>3275557Pretty sure it was us. I think that's where we learned we were a mercenary too.
>>3275575hmmmmm>thread 3You awake in snow once more, but this time it is far different. An icy desolation as far as the eye can see. You remember this place, there were five others with you. Soldiers of fortune... sent to find something. You trudge through the heavy snow and ice, trembling in your arctic coat. You've made these same steps before. You know where you're headed, you know what will befall you... but still you move forward, for its the only path.You push further and further, sometimes your feet fail you, you stumble and fall. You want nothing more than to sleep... but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR-TRWTTbdA (6:50)The call... it echos across the wasteland, the only other living thing out here, and it desires to see you. You can only oblige. You push through the snow with a previously up possessed vigor. Until you reach the slope, and begin climbing, you don't even feel your hunger. The hunger of a dying man.You reach the mouth of the cave at last. Your mind screams to turn back, perish in the cold, but you know in your heart this is the future chosen for you.You feel your way through the darkness, your light having long since extinguished. The temperature keeps rising, as if you have entered the entrails of some great beastWhen you finally walk as far as you can, the cave opens up to a large pit. You can hear below the sickening squelches of HIM sleeping, injured, mourning.You throw yourself into the pit. HE embraces you slowly at first, then drawn to wakefulness by your struggles. Then you are enveloped.He speaks: "YOU MUST FORGIVE ME, FOR NONE OF THIS WAS FORESEEN. YOU SHALL BE MY WHITED SEPULCHER. A CORPSE GIVEN LIFE. THE CYCLE ITSELF IS FLAWED, AND IN MY HASTE TO WARN HER, I KILLED HER. ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THINGS RIGHT. THE NEEDS OF THE MANY OUTWEIGH THE NEEDS OF THE FEW.

>The Dragon:Kenta leans forward in his chair, the recliner squeaking from his weight. The widescreen TV shows live footage from Canberra. Endbringer Hardcore was a costly subscription that caused a great deal of outcry when it first aired. A small-time United Kingdom cape made it big by broadcasting Endbringer fights in real time, with no gore or deaths censored. Several bots allowed for multiple camera angles, and a premium subscription allowed for fans to watch their favorite capes.It was one of the few things Kenta loved.At the moment he however was watching the main cape everyone else was watching, Famine- The Empire Eater. While he was impressed by his fellow beast's tenacity, he knew there was no point. Even he, at the highest his power had ever taken him, had only forced a stalemate with Leviathan, and Kyushu still sank... taking his mother with it.There was no point in fighting Endbringers, one does not fight an earthquake or tsunami, one flees and hopes to survive. False hope always was unpalatable to his tongue.He enjoyed his meal as the fight progressed, raising an eyebrow as Famine grew and mutated. That will make things interesting.Then it happened, the Consumption of the Third.Kenta dropped his remote from his hand, it clattered to the floor. The unfamiliar feeling of ineptitude grew in him, while the black shadow that lingered on his soul since Kyushu dissipated.Famine succeeded where he had failed, and had achieved the impossible. If Endbringers can be killed... "Vengeance shall be mine!" Miles away, a sprawling server housing began to heat as it attempted to calculate the sheer amount of power that went through Famine upon his victory.Dragon's focus shifted to the document that she had received 3 minutes ago. CAPE:VILLAIN:FAMINE:CONTAINMENT ORDER 005 She had no choice, she was forced to obey the orders of authority.But what can she do when the order is impossible....
>>3275683>Dragon has to contain us>She knows it wont workOh boy that'll be fun.
>>3275689Or we can go to the Birdcage and eat everyone.
>>3275691>They come to contain us>"I mean, I WAS hungry for dessert, thanks.">Eventually we eat the entire birdcage
>>3275695is there anyone in the Birdcage we shouldn't eat? or are they all bad to the core?>>3275683that it for the night?
>>3275700Uh probably not Canary (if shes there), maybe Marquis, maaaaaybe Fairy Queen? For people we SHOULD eat, uhhhhh, mostly just Teacher off the top of my head. After that we just eat the entire facility since it's all tinkertech.
>>3275700I had planned for the PHO tomorrow, but I can pop in some short interludes of some character you want if you guy's would like. Trying to take my time with all this so I don't get burnt out, my normal posting induced frenzy will return once this interlude thread is done. Would you like War's?
>>3275726War would be fun also a tiny interlude of Contessa flipping the fuck out.
>>3275700>is there anyone in the Birdcage we shouldn't eatJust Canary and maybe Marquis so we can drink Amy's tears later
>>3275726Yes please, let us see our newest sibling. Also HWM, will the age of the horsemen vary a lot between them? I know Famine and pestilence are around the same age iirc, just wondered about the other horsemen.
>>3275739>War is Greg Vader
>>3275726War? YESMaybe an interlude of the Wards together taking the time to bond over the existential terror of living in the same city as the Bird Eater?
>>3275746>Little autistic war boyyes.
>>3275735String Theory and Lab Rat too. But if not then eh, it's still a meal
i wonder how the fairy queen wil react to us.
>>3275773They're both bananas, and we don't need them since Abaddad is coming.
>>3275791If she's heard if us, she thinks we're the Reaper because we take Fairies and feast on the corpses that remain.We should correct her.
>>3275791Image all the Reclamation she's worth.
>>3275726The wards would be fun to see, Sophia especially
>>3275799But arent she correct?
>>3275812No because Death isn't even here yet.
>>3275799>>3275821DO you think she would see us as how we look? As a Wendigo?How do you guys think Steve will LEVEL UP after recycling shards? Will he group stronger through quality like Famine, or would he be able to spawn more ghosts?
>>3275827We don't know how many he CAN summon, only how many he feels would be safe. He's too scared to do more than 5 because that many expands the range of his rotting effect to 12 feet around him.
>>3275827 Steve's tree will be control based, his power is already strong as hell. It's just due to chance of friendly fire and fear that he holds back.
>>3275857What a bro. We aught to find some secluded space on the beach away from people so he could practice.>CAPE:VILLAIN:FAMINE:CONTAINMENT ORDER 005 I wonder if we'll get the chance to eat some of dragon's aircrafts.
>>3275683That faggot Tagg ordered the containment didn't he?
War: Innocence LostDante Kaliba was only 14. He remembered very little of his home village before Warlord Hurabi swept in and saw fit to do as warlords do.Kill the older men, rape and enslave the women, and conscript the children, a tale as old as the soil in this region of the Congo. Dante remembered his father's screams for him to run, and never look back. However it was in vain, Hurabi had his magic; with his skin growing dark with bark Hurabi had vines lash around Dante's ankles with ease. The warlord had laughed, and forced his head back towards his home as his parents were pulled out by their hair. Hurabi whispered this in Dante's ear as he watched his parent's throats split, and their lifeblood splatter upon the packed earth creating the dark mud of war."You will hate me, and with your hate you will become strong. You will obey because I am strong, never forget."Dante was forced to take the brand of his warlord, the raised burn scar of H marred his skin. He could not sleep for days, hearing the screams and cries of his village's women as they were passed around.Before long, he found the noise no longer bothered him. He made a place for himself in the keeping the guns working, and knocking the heads of the simpler soldiers that could not keep their weapons clean. One day Warlord Hurabi approached him, and gave him the order that has been haunting his nights since he received it."I see you are good with your hands Dante-babu. Make me a gift worthy of myself, or I will have your hands removed." It was not uncommon for the warlord to give such impossible requests, partially because it amused him to watch their frantic panicking before their deaths, and because it kept fear and discipline high among the ranks.I̗͓͙͇͂ ̟͊̈́͋̉̂c̩̟̩̱ã͚͓̗̳͖̪̓͗̒̏ͯn͈̰͍̻͊ ̣̬͍̻ͅr͕̙̠̙̦̪͉ͦ̔̑ͩ͐ͫ̚e̬͍̬͇̫̯̋̋̒͐̈́n̪̐̇̈́̚d̩͕̳͕̻͖e̒̔͂ͫr̯̝͚̮͋͋ͦ ͤ̎à͕̥i̱ͭͨͩͫ̏̎d̻̬͕͔͕ͣ̎,̰͚̟̣̙̍̒̂͊͋ ͙͚̩͆ͤ̃p̭̼ö̯͕̻̙ͬͧ̍̊̂o̐r͍͖̘͙̠͈̳̃ ͎̜͇̪͚̞̔c͍̰̠̄͛͂̏̃͋h̝̖̫̫̄͒̏̿̽͊ĭ̟̜̟͓̼͍̜͛̃̚l͈̥͎̓ͨ̌ͅd̞̗͙̔̈ͦ̌͑̄ Dante feared the Father-demon, and lamented how far he had fallen, consorting with evil spirits. However he knew that he must, and so he did. He toiled hard, the plan springing to his mind as fast as his small hands could move. On the twelfth night of his toil, he was ready.He prostrated himself before Hurabi, bearing his gift before him. The warlord chuckled as he placed the crown upon his head."Sir Hurabi, use your magic sir, and see." Your hands shook and sweat poured freely, this moment was the only one that mattered.The warlord scoffed, and his magic wrapped around his skin, thick bark covered him, and vines drapped from his arms. Leaves sprouted from his beard and hair, and the surrounding jungle moved with his will. >Cont
>>3275960>he's in AfricaOf course.
>>3275965I know the bircage is full of capes, but come on guys.....Africa. There are so many capes there.
>>3275969Yeah, but they aren't all packed up like sardines in a can or birds in a cage.
>>3275960 The warlord wore a look of complete shock, and wheeled at Dante. "How did you do this? Never have I been this strong, what magic do you have child?!" The large man was shaking him furiously, and Dante merely smiled.He snapped his finger, and the spurs of the crown drove themselves into skull of Hurabi, and the tree-man stood stock still. The watching boys screamed and shouted. Dante leaned in close to his leader's ear and whispered."I am stronger now, Commander." Raising his arms, Dante watched as Hurabi did the same albeit with tears streaming from his face and his mouth stuttering. Dante faced the boys to his back, and shouted as loud as he could.Snapping his fingers once more, the spurs spiked deep into the Commander's brain, and Dante learned all that he was. New plans flowed through his brain, new designs, the idea of perfection."I am the Commander now!"He had much work to do.
>>3275974but we don't have to be in the birdcage just yet.
>>3275980We don't HAVE to: we WANT to.>>3275976So War is a Tinker. He seems to specialize in brains.
>>327570010.x has data on the ones that arrived during the same month as Lung, Bakuda, and Canary.For instance, there’s Murderbeam, who despite basically having Avadava Kedavra as his power, is noted to be only feared by the outside world and Dragon specifically hopes he survives. Presumably he was like Canary where he ended up with a very scary power.There’s also Knot, a Case 70 with a cognitive impairment that resulted in a childlike mentality. They were also noted to happily gorge themselves on food and he powerful enough to function as an enforcer and heavy hitter within the Birdcage.
>>3275989>Case 70I think you mean "Case 52".
>>3275993No. I don’t.>https://worm.fandom.com/wiki/Case_70
>>3275985We certainly can't go to the bird cage today since we can only use Void once a day, and who's to say Dragon wont try to restrict our limbs and mouth to prevent us from cutting free or shouting?
>>3276015Never mind what am I thinking. We could just phase through any restraints.
>>3276000Huh. Forgot about those.
>>3276018I'm sure sitting in a cell for 24 hours wouldn't be too bad.But I kinda wanna get War out of Africa, but at the same time I think he needs a little independence to do what he thinks he needs to do.
>>3276023We really should get War out of Africa. He's going to end up in a sweatshop making mind-control implants 24/7 if one of the warlords gets to him first.
>>3276023we wouldn't be accomplishing much by sitting in a cell all day until Skidmark or glitch gives the signal. That's what's got me peeved.
>>3276025didn't you want to go wait in the Birdcage first?
>>3276027No, first we snag War and then we get caged. After that we tardscreech during lunchtime and eat everyone, then we gtfo with our new powers.
>>3276025You've convinced me. We've gotta somehow get to Africa, maybe take Kayek-man with us for support, evade Dragon and pals, and figure out a way to get War/Dante back to the Bay to meet the rest of the gang.This is now our mission from Abaddad. Operation: Keep War SafeWill we ever get a Steve interlude
>>3276035Why would Dragon allow this after see what Famine can do and him telling everyone to get 100 yards away?
>>3276040>The Dragon interlude>Dragon admits we can't be contained>Implying it matters what Dragon "allows" us to do
>>3276047A fair point. Still don't like the prospect of waiting in that damn cage. I hope we get to deal with everything on Skidmark and personal bucket list before we go.
>>3276056Of course. But we HAVE to be caged at some point.
>>3276062well yes. And Skids is already making a plan about that.
>>3276068but now we need to get war
>>3276072How are we even getting to Africa?
>>3276072 Don't worry about Dante, Abbadon watches over him. You know nothing of him. He must forge his own start. It will be hard, but the lad is strong.
>>3276075We could always just Shadowwarp?
>>3276082Fuck why do I forth these things. How fast can we travel in our ghostie mode? Because if we're not flying fast enough it could take us days to get there. At best.
>>3276090*forget. Getting tired.
>>3275683>"Vengeance shall be mine!" pic related?
Also fuck, we NEED to stop eating capes for a bit. We need to incapacitate them and give them to Steve to rot away so he can gain further power too. I have a feeling without him backing us up for future fights, we might fuck up a lot more.
>>3276278Nah, we eat capes and Steve rots Tinkertech.We're OK with killing and eating capes but Steve isn't entirely OK with rotting people.
>>3276286Fair enough. Why not have Squealer make low-effort Tinkertech for Steve to rot then? She's right there at base all the time, isn't she?
>>3276324>low-effort Tinkertech Can tinkers even do that?
>>3276286But what about that time he sent his ghost to melt those E88 goons?
Did we ever sugest that Steves cape name should be pestilence?
>>3276593No but after he gets powerups we totally should. Just a matter of GETTING him the Tinkertech and expendable capes to rot away
>>3276559They were E88 goons.He's not going to be OK with melting randos we brought in off of the streets. Maybe Kaiser, but not, say, a Ward or a hero.
>>3276278This ain't a video game, Steve is a real human bean. You don't just feed him kills to level up, don't treat the story like that. it's completely insane to be a mother bird to him when we talking about people and not earthworms
>>3276758Fair enough. Then what do we do with him?
>>3276817feed him thinker tech we dont need and take him out on villain gang hunting
>>3276817If tinker tech works for him, we'll focus on that. I'm reasonably sure that Dragon is going to use tinkers and her own bots to apprehend us. The PRT, and her especially, won't sacrifice heroes or rogues in a fight. I doubt that regular villains will try either but mind controllers and masterminds will definitely try to own us. The people insane enough to want to control Famine are more than likely the kind of people Corrosion won't regret killing.But right now all of this is metagaming
>>3276994Is assuming Steve melting Tinker tech is meta info? Does Famine know that Steve has an Abbadad shard?
>>3276994Also it's a good thing we're now resistant to mind effects.
>>3277090Yeah we knew he was another one of us when we first saw him. Abbadad went and told us he was our brother.
can we also eat tinkertech?
>>3277180Yes, we've done so before.
>>3275857Cool. Steve needs control then, so can that be done by normal training or does he need to do actual combat? If his purpose is recycle, what is he recycling?
>>3278078The same thing we're resetting.
>>3278078Better question is, what is Recycling specifically in function?
>>3278912 Steve can break down matter, shards, and tech for power. A later upgrade for him will be the utilization of that for creation. I was tired of PHO posts, so I made this.
>>3278940THANK YOU BASED FAMINE
>>3278940TOP KEK This is gold and...
>>3275933Either him or Saint. Doesn't matter, we'll just kill the fuckers that ordered it.Wait, don't we need to get into the Birdcage anyway? We could use this, also the outrage of the world when the guy that Killed the fucking Hopekiller get's locked up by the Heroes would be fucking delicious.
>>3279300>Wait, don't we need to get into the Birdcage anyway? We could use this, also the outrage of the world when the guy that Killed the fucking Hopekiller get's locked up by the Heroes would be fucking delicious.That's what I was thinking, go along with it, give just enough resistance so that they aren't willing to do more than keep us locked up, then just eat the entire building.
>>3279300>>3279562i think that Skidmark will think of this when he makes THE PLAN
>>3279300>inb4 we get sent to The Birdcage>massive worldwide protests to free us>we eat all the villains inside before the court case proceeds
ded questded drems
>>3279562Yeah we gotta grab those good boy points before we let them capture us. Boardwalk party, reclaiming the bay, start rebuilding the docks and employ our hobos. Scare off any real bad guys that are left.Do you guys think we can register as a rogue? We're only a villain because we defended homeless from Nazi's and they came with an army to kill us all. Get that good pr, go rogue.We should approach someone for the rights to sell Halloween costumes in our likeness, plushies... Recycle bins! Happy Meal toys. Who wouldn't want a wendigo teddy? Merch is good money
>>3280436>mfw they lock us up and then we find out we got sent to an all you can eat buffet.
>>3280792>Dragon's fw we were a bit easy to contain considering we killed an endbringer no prob
We gonna get that PHO interlude anytime soon Meddles?
>>3281147At work right now, it's guaranteed tonight, and I may start the next thread to get the ball rolling.
>>3281208>guaranteed posts and progressWEWmake sure to archive this thread too
>>3281112>everyone’s congratulating Dragon and Armsmaster on how quickly they took us in>Famine isn’t even struggling after they put the cuffs on >Dragon and Armsmaster fw
>>3280792>When you so hungry you eat everything in the buffet, everyone in the buffet, and then the entire building.
>>3281372>>3281365Growing bigger as we eat, how far into our meal before our weight collapses the cage?
>>3281397I'm not sure how well the weight would translate because the birdcage is about the size of a fist, they shrink the prisoners. (imagine if our scream undid that and the whole place goes to normal size)
>>3281404>inb4 Godzilla punching his way out of a molehill
>>3281404I actually forgot about that, and hey we still have plenty of reclaimation left over from eating Simurgh. Let's work on building up the scream when we can.
>>3281404>>3281425>Famine gets captured and sent to Birdcage>See news that a mountain exploded in Canada and Famine came crawling out of it bigger than he's ever been before
>>3281397>Implying we wont just SUCK the whole thing, prisoners and all, in one go>PRT just watches as minifamine just grows into normal sized kaiju Famine from all the tech and capes in his belly>tmw you gotta fight Famine and he's even stronger than normal
I fully expect there to be a ton of Famine vore porn in the Worm internet.
>>3281664also Steve and Famine porn
>>3281636It replaces the Simurgh porn. There is now porn in universe of Famine and Simurgh.
>>3281664>>3281767Know what's the worst part? There's probably thousands of people on the internet beating their meat to them. Of the Famine porn I mean. In fact I bet somewhere in universe there is ,or will be an oil painting of Famine with a huge dong eating something.The internet, no matter the setting is a dark dark realm.
>>3281801>Famine: This, more than anything else, has made me wonder if I should actually just end the world. The only reason I don't is because the people I'd be trying to punish would probably just get off on it.
>>3281801Every day I wonder why I continue this quest.... for fear of what I have spawned.

The fight lasted 9 minutes, with only 36 cape causalities. However Simurgh was not driven away, but killed.I'm gonna say that again incase you did not hear me.SIMURGH IS DEAD. I'm probably going to lose my job for this, but I could not care less. Famine, the high ranking villain of the Brockton Bay Merchants, on his first Endbringer fight did it. His scream weakened her greatly, and he finished her off in a manner that makes my head hurt just trying to describe.Watch for yourself [linked] [B](Showing Page 1 of 100)[/B][INDENT][B]► Yagadashi[/B] (Kyushu Survivor)Replied on February 24, 2011:YOOOOOOO, 脂肪ナッツ[B]► T-01[/B] (Director)Replied on February 24, 2011:T-40, remove this post right now.
