    "What about it?" You ask, raising an eyebrow.
    "They want to take a look at it."
    "It's not mine." You say immediately. "I mean- It isn't my design. If they want to look at it, they'll have to ask the person who built it."
    "Who built it?"
    "That mercenary girl me and Grayson worked with the other day."
    "I. . see." She said. "I'll have to talk to the board and tell them that."

    Now, down to business.

    Your leg stitched up, you limp over to Mark, stripping down. "Hey, uh. . any way you can repair my mechandrites?" You ask. He nods.
    "I'll have a lotta work to do after the techies finish taking those things apart, but I'll do what I can." He says, taking the 'drites.

    Then you call Amy.
    "Daaave." Amy said. "The secret projeeect. It's going to be awesome."
    You chuckle. "Hey, I figured I should warn you; I used the Javelin today, and. . "
    She sounded worried. "Did it explode?!"
    "Uh, no, it didn't. In fact it destroyed a massive, high-tech powersuit in the mission today. But the guys I work for want to know how it works."
    "Ohh. So you told them to get into contact with me." She says. "Maybe I can get some money by making a deal with them. Nice thinking!"


    "Just looking after the interests of my favorite lady mad scientist. Make sure to get a good deal, though. It's a pretty powerful weapon."
    "Oooh, you know what might even be a better idea? I could get a job there! As like, an agent or something. This morning, Grayson told me that it's pretty much the same thing as a merc job, except you can always rely on backup." She said. "Plus, they'd be totally interested in all the things I make in my spare time."

    "Yeah, that's a good idea. . probably." You say. "I do want one of those suits, though."

    And then you wake up on the floor. Your leg still hurts, and apparently you've just fallen out of your bed.
    <Just after dawn.> Azure states. You shrug; you've been asleep for at least eight hours. That's how long a normal person sleeps, right?

    "Maybe if he gets some of the crazy powersuit tech. ."
    She shook her head. "Maybe, but we need to figure out how it works first. It's a lot more complex than we first thought. I dumbed it down a *lot* for you."
    Then she shrugged, and opened the door. "Jun will want to talk to you later today, and Mark said he's upgrading your mechandrites to work with the new powersuit tech.

    I love this fucking board so much.

    Fuck yeah. Me too!

    SWQ is impossible to get into. It gets flooded with posts so much that any suggestions you might have get drowned. And that's not fun at all.

    >Actually, today's mission wasn't really planned at all. I knew you would find out who the 'real baddy' was, but I wasn't sure how you'd find out. So I decided to give you guys a solo mission. The only encounter I planned to be difficult, you cleared with a single fucking nat100.

    I do love this quest as well. I follow an absurd number of quests and this is one of my favorites of them.

    Exabye, you're running an excellent quest, keep it up.

    That's what its IRC is for, but yeah, SWQ is mostly just plain reading material for me nowadays.

    As for suggestions getting in... Are you kidding me? I'm the guy that said N'oo'p should get a crowbar. He got his damn crowbar.

    Metahuman Renaissance I just tend to either run late for, or keep slowpoking literally five seconds after my post is no longer relevant.

    >that was earliest of many things you guys screwed up.

    What else did we screw up?
    Or things went in totally different direction than you were expecting.
    >> Paloozer 05/03/12(Thu)21:28 No.18968879
    Oh yeah this quest is awesome. This is actually the first quest I have followed for over a single thread, and I worried that nothing else will live up to my expectations haha.

    But oh well. As long as there is this one I am all good.

    Here, because we're so far from autosage, I'll detail a few things about the STORY BEHIND THE STORY.
    NFC was pretty much planned to be what it is now; Where you fuck around with cybernetic enhancements and shoot things. But originally, you were planned to break out of EE, making enemies with Jun, and fall in with a group of mercs.

    Detective: This was the proto-verne, and he was going to be the squad commander. Brash, always drunk, always kind of a jerk.
    Bro: This was proto-Grayson. He was planned originally to already be in the merc squad, not in EE with Jun- you were planned to break out on your own. He was going to be some kind of heavy-duty sniper with AI-assisted targeting.

    Brat: This was proto-amy, and she wasn't actually a genius. She was going to be loud and annoying, and carry around an uzi and a bag of grenades, because her russian uncle sent her 'goodies' every so often.

    Abel didn't exist at this time in the planning.

    So, the new electromuscle 'drites.

    Are they more organic-looking? Are we packing a pair of tentacles that look like coiled masses of fuck-you-I'm-the-ubermensch murdermuscle?

    So, Captcha says the point-and-click version of this comes on three discs and is pretty cool.

    > The drites look identical, but a bit bulkier; and the 4 monoknives will have been replaced with a single x-shaped mono-sword in the center. That way, when the gatling-gauss is spinning, the mono-sword becomes a mono-drill. For maximum slashy death.

    Templar: This was proto-alli, and she was designed to be a returning sort of nemesis. But not because of her brother dying, but because she's morally opposed to implants of any kind. She was going to get along exclusively on combat drugs and monomolecular weapons, and be some kind of hacker-ninja.

    I'm glad we screwed up those plans, then. That sounds good- but not as amazing as what you ended up running.
    >> Anonymous 05/03/12(Thu)21:36 No.18968970
    That one is even worse than the one we got.

    This. What we got sounds much more fun. It's nice to work for not-so-good guys once in a while.

    I like that we were annoyed at being held prisoner, but figured that honestly they weren't all that bad as far as corporations go. We figured it was best to remain on their side in case we had to run, and to not try to skip town until we had more data. It's ended up with us working for them in a pretty nice relationship.

    ... You do realize you just made us roughly 80% more messianic, right? At this rate I might actually start pushing for the formation of a tentacledakka cult.

    >Actually, all of this proto-stuff fell apart pretty much on my own third post. Not because I thought it was a bad idea, but because I wasn't sure how to get from 'INTRO' to 'JOINING THE SQUAD'. So I had Grayson show up, supposedly 'undercover', and then I realized I had no idea what I was doing. So I decided, 'Fuck it' and wrote whatever came to mind. Only around thread three or so did I have even slightly a clue what I was planning, and the longer this goes on, the wider my plots and plans spread.

    I find that's actually what works best on the rare occasion I actually manage to get enough people together to game. Anything I plan in advance- literally anything- basically crashes and burns, usually under its own colossal, unsustainable weight.

    But the moment you start winging it, people just have fun. And as long as you don't let on you aren't actually planning things in advance, they think you're some kind of Kira-tier chessmaster.

    You were always going to have an AI assistant. I was thinking something like cortana, but then when it came time, I didn't know how to introduce them. So instead I brought in Clippy, and let you murder him. Finally, when it came time to meet proto-verne and proto-amy, I gave Amy a cluster of AIs and gave you your choice.
    >> Anonymous 05/03/12(Thu)21:42 No.18969035
    Yeah, besides they had pretty much saved our life and replaced our destroyed spine. Without them, at best we would have been a paralyzed cripple for life, at worst we would have never woken up. So we kinda owed them even if they kidnapped and experimented on us.
    >> Exabyte !SIL6URyblU 05/03/12(Thu)21:47 No.18969089

    Overall, I'm glad my plans were dashed apart, because I agree with everyone; what I planned sucked, and what I winged didn't. I'll continue to do this for quite some time, even if I end up having to skip a day or two.

    Keep it up, you're doing a great job and I'm loving the characters. Hopefully we'll get Abel out in more or less one piece, I like him.

    Our first order of business however will be to see the armor that the company acquired and learn the inns and outs of hacking the power supply so we can do it more reliably. We'll need every advantage we can get against these schmucks.

    It's hard to say what you guys fucked up, what I personally fucked up, or what I planned but never got around to doing. A lot of things just didn't seem to fit the tone of the story, and a bunch of more things I'm keeping in my pocket to bring out at a later date.

    Sir. You're pretty much the next Evo Quest.

    That, to those who remember Evo Quest, should mean a lot. Whatever you do, don't stop this quest. I honestly don't know how, but you have that same... That same SPARK, of winging and creativity and ridiculous bullshit, all strung together into a followable plot, somehow.

    Those of us who were there all greatly miss Evo Quest. Don't drop out like the author of that quest did. If you keep running this quest, then that'll be the end of it. But if you stop... I will look for you. I will find you. And I will blorp you.

    Don't know why the author just dropped it
