    Part 1 - http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/9699385/

    (I've consumed three vodka/cranberries in addition to a bowl and half or so. Let's see how this affects my ability to DM!)

    You come to, feeling your blood kneading the inside of your skull. How nice.
    "Get up," he murmurs. "It's about noon above ground. What are we doing today?"

    You are Subject #82, escaped mental patient and host to a sentient, ever-hungering blood. You've taken to calling it Garfield. You've holed up in the sewerrs after escaping from the research facility in which you were held. You've stolen some supplies, and your blood has fed just last night, on a stray dog. You're keeping the abandoned maintenance room you're in well-lit, because shadows have been making you extremely paranoid lately.

    (sorry for the late start)

    You go to work on your hair with your butterfly knife, having no scissors. You pretty much cut yourself unrecognizable, though you do now have a very distinctive, messy-looking pixie cut.

    We don't need a picutre perfect wig. Just something that helps us look not like out previous self. It doesn't have to pass more than a glancing look.

    Anyway, I don't think we've had any real food in awhile. I say we venture above ground via the parking garrage exit and try to get some food. It's noon according to blood, so things should be hectic enough that we can grab a bite to eat at a Mc Donalds or something.

    What's the weather like right now? We may be wearing conspicuous clothing depending on the time of year, especially in Miami. It may be worth another trip to the Goodwill if it will help us fit in better. Plus then we have several outfits to choose from when one gets dirty and smelly and we don't have time to wash it.

    We should also try to buy as little as possible, and steal what we can. Save the money for food and potentially a way to get out of Miami and away from Arkham labs.

    You head up to the surface cautiously, quick to mingle with the crowd (as best you can in a plaid suit-jacket)
    You stop at a McDonalds and eat a double cheeseburger alongside the cubicle rats on break. Your blood hums a merry tune to itself; he's been well-behaved today.
    Stopping at a CVS, you purchase RED HAIR DYE, as well as several gallons of WATER and a bar of SOAP.
    The wheelbarrow in your lair will suffice as a tub for now.

    There are probably hotels with weekly rates on the edge of town, or you could try to find an abandoned house.
    Your blood burbles with happiness. "I'm glad we can be friends," it says. "Though sometimes you put us in pretty scary situations..."

    You have wandered your way over to a Wal-Mart. You are outside the area of sewer that you are familiar with.

    A normal person whose blood occasionally needs to consume the homeless?
    You venture into the Walmart, placing various toiletries in a basket (toothpaste, brush, etc.) You buy yourself a pair of black demin jeans and a nondescript black tank top. It is a mess of humanity, fat white spawn-matrons and chattering cuban larvae cross your path every few moments.

    You camp out in the restroom for the 25 minutes or so it takes to dye your hair, then check out a leave.

    You now have DARK RED HAIR.
    You have purchased toiletries and new clothes.

    A multitool might be handy. Pliers, bolt cutters, wirecutters. More spare batteries, a stronger flashlight. Maybe an inflatable air mattress.

    If we know any chemistry, we could get a lot of helpful chemicals from which to make useful items. Set up a whole underground lab.

Stashing some food in your bed, you venture forth into the sewer system, easily recalling yesterday's routes.

    There's no way that one of the other escapees would have our number. That makes this a trap- that clerk must have mentioned that we bought a phone, and they traced what number it was to find out how to call us.

    We need to move our hideout. The phone was with us, and it might have been secretly transmitting our position for days; probably not, but why risk it? Hopefully we've found a few other potential hiding spots in the sewers by now...

    Uh... "it gives us something to do" is NOT an adequate reason to put ourselves in a situation where we will likely be captured and taken back there. Wherever "there" was. We can't remember our past, and they were doing things to us, we have a number instead of a name, and our blood can talk. This is a lot of red flags. Extreme caution and paranoia is somewhat warranted here!

    Further, any situation where our hunters- whomever they may be- might gain additional information about us is one to be avoided. Better to avoid all contact if possible.

    We never really fortified it worth a damn.

    I'm pretty sure the fate that awaits us in the event of failure is worse than death. Anyway, we should seek to avoid putting ourselves in situations where we have to roll at all if possible.

    You manage to find a van parked behind a restaurant. You hotwire it easily, but it doesn't run very well. It chokes a bit as you exit the parking lot. You speed away, but the noise could have alerted people earlier than you'd have hoped for.
    You swiftly get on the highway and drive north. About fifteen minutes into the drive, your new phone rings.

    Apparently we both consider ourselves the bigger fish. Based on this, I infer that he might have some ability with which to back up his feelings (or he's just crazy and confident). Seeing him act in a dangerous situation might help sort out who would eat whom.

    Guys, we need to consider if it would be wise to tip off 54 that our blood eats people.

    Pros: We're sometimes unconscious afterward, he could help deal with it. If we end up shocking him when we do it the first time, he could respond poorly and attack us at a vulnerable moment. Moral support if he responds well to the news.

    Cons: Might get totally freaked out and disassociate with us/otherwise turn hostile. Probably would not leave him feeling at ease around us. Would reveal one of our methods of dealing with him if he turns hostile.

    I lean towards spilling the beans. Others' thoughts?

    "Everything's a god damn dead, zone, I don't understa-" he stops, staring out the window.

    The SUV makes a clanking noise as it drops 8 inches onto the pavement. Looking at the wheels, you see that they are gone, with no trace that they were ever there. As you watch, the doors disappear as well.

    I find the puppet motif going on here somewhat unnerving; is it possible that she's not actually controlling her powers at all? But she must be able to turn them off; otherwise she'd never have gotten out into a major road like this. There would have been a massive trail of destruction, and they'd have broken out the snipers.

    The mind that's breathing down the neck of every terrified thought you piece together is horrifically alien to you. The simple fact that you can feel it thinking your thoughts aside, there is an unnerving sense of casual amusement with the way your mind is picked apart, the way one would pick apart a flower's petals.

    You are brought to one knee as, for a moment, you can't tell which thoughts your thinking and which are merely being observed or created within you.
    Then, like a ponderous weight, the attentions of 13 lift from your psyche. Your breathing is shallow and rapid, and you open your eyes nervously. Garfield rushes to pool around your brain and keep you cool.

    13 herself has started drifting slowly forward, her legs trailing behind her as she occasionally skims the ground. She darts towards 54, who is standing, seemingly paralyzed. His arms flail helplessly, but he is otherwise unable to move.

    Did we beat here mind off with our commanding shout?

    I mean

    >You are brought to one knee as, for a moment, you can't tell which thoughts your thinking and which are merely being observed or created within you.
    Then, like a ponderous weight, the attentions of 13 lift from your psyche

    Did we win and drive her out of was she done raping our mind and wanted to leave?

    76 is a pretty high roll.....

    HUG HER GODSDAMMIT! She probably hungry lonely and scared out of her mind at whatever is controlling hers.

    Oh i realize that it'll probably lead to our deaths, i'm just saying that's the only slim chance that I can see of us AND 54 surviving. We could probably run away right now with no problem while he dies, but getting in the way will just lead us back to being fucked or worse and her attention is diverted

    thus, sneak attack. We can keep trying to sway her, but if it took a 76 to let up the assault on our mind, i can't imagine the roll to free HER from it

    Perhaps she has a "friend" in her mind much like our blood who said

    Hey, if you let me control you ill let all the bad people go away :D

    and then bodies by drowning pool started playing and things got terrible and cliche

    Run up to her. And then... then... I don't know.

    Hug her? Send Garfield into her body, with orders to try and set her free from whatever's hurting her- or to devour her? I feel like I should be referencing the level of darkness in the setting for my actions here, but I don't know enough about StonerDM to know how reasonable it is to be optimistic/pessimistic.

    I vote we somehow try to stop her. If our warning dont work well, lets go up behind her with a bit of wood while she is mind raping the guy and wack her over the head. Maybe if we can knock her out we can seal this unsealed evil in a can.

    >I'm leaning towards sneak attack, they feel like they want it more.

    You let 13 drift a little closer, then dash for her.
    Your blood surges out of your scabbed-over wounds on your left arm as you brandish the revolver in your right. You fire twice, then swing the pseudopod towards her.
    One of the bullets enters 13's face just below the right eye. The eye sags a bit, going lazy as it fills with blood and brain matter. The second bullet slows to a stop and falls to the ground, then boils away into steam, leaving a small diamond behind.
    Your blood collides with her head firmly; you can feel the reverberations of her shattering skull run up your arm.
    Her head cocks to one side, neck apparently snapped. 54 begins screaming as he is held fast in a standing position. One of his arms slowly strains outward to one side, then pops off like a wing pulled off a bug, blood spilling forth into the street.

    With 52 bleeding out I don't think we have much room to play.
    Send blood into her head. Maybe try to kill anything 'strange' that might be controlling her, but failing that, we gotta eat her alive.
    >> Anonymous 05/11/10(Tue)03:07 No.9746803

    Right, not unsalvageable.

    Try to finish her off.

    If successful, try and use burning blood to cauterize 54's stub. He can get a robot arm or something, he's an empath.

    You send your blood surging into 13's head through her eyes, nose, ears, mouth, and bullet wound. Garfield promptly melts the inside of her head, then begins charring her chest cavity as he sinks downward.
    You feels 13's mind brush against you. Every window nearby shatters; a river is carved through a yard nearby, and trees begin growing alongside it. A fountain of oil begins at 13's feet, staining them black.

    There is a blinding flash of light, and everything goes silent.
    You are suddenly aware of yourself in a well-lit field. It seems to be a few hours earlier than it was just a second ago, still the early afternoon. The top half of several buildings that were also just in Miami a second ago are your only company in the field. 13 and 54 are both gone, though your blood remains.
    You check to make sure you still have all your limbs. You do.
    You check to see if your fedora is still there. It isn't.
