>previous threads here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Street%20FighterIn an overpriced coffeeshop in a Metro City neighborhood that keeps trying to get hip but never will, you sip at the drink of the day (a Gentleman's Special, advertised with a chalkoard drawing of a cup of coffee with silat sticks trying to look tough) and think over your orders.A year ago you began the torturously complicated application process to become an agent of AEGIS, a UN agency so secret you didn't even find out the name until the fifth background check came back clean. You're not sure if the letters stand for anything or if they just thought it would sound cool. You hope they'll actually tell you when they hire you.If they hire you, that is. That's the issue for today. There's a man sitting alone in the coffeeshop with a USB drive you're supposed to recover for your final field test. Your handler didn't tell you if this was a real mission or if the man was a plant, only that your orders were to get the drive and not kill the man. After following him for hours you didn't spot any other tails, any support, nothing to suggest he isn't alone and just reading a battered paperback edition of Lord of Light.>Wait awhile longer, follow him when he leaves.>Approach him now and try to strike up a conversation.>Throw your chair at him.
>>23662206>>Approach him now and try to strike up a conversation.Sidle up with a smaile then stab him in the back
>>23662206>>Approach him now and try to strike up a conversation.Sup
>>23662206>Approach him now and try to strike up a conversation."Hey, is that any good? *refer to book*"A friend's been trying to get me to read it, saying that it's as good as Dune and The Forever War."
>>23662206>Wait awhile longer, follow him when he leaves.We can ambush him for the drive in an alley.
>Throw your chair at him.This is a side scrolling beatemup game isn't it?
Ask him about the book. But sit in a chair we can hit him with if it comes up.
>>23662331No, that was the last quest.
>>23662331no, no, no, this is a "Cammy" gameSo we have to go around with Super rollerskates and shoot him to death
>>23662206Strike up a conversation. We suave agents in here.
A tour in the Air Force and a few years in Interpol taught you the benefits of patience, careful investigation and intelligence gathering, but this is just boring the shit out of you. If this is what spy work comes down to you're going to be kinda disappointed.If he was waiting on someone he would've met them by now, you think. If this is a dead drop you haven't seen him make it. Staying at a careful distance from him all day isn't going to get that data, maybe it's time to be proactive."Heyyyy, guy," you say, flashing him your best smile. "How's the book?">roll 1d100 and give me our mark! high roll wins!
Rolled 31>>23662445WE ARE CHARISMATIC
Rolled 12>>23662445Just talk to him casual like
Rolled 5>>23662445Talk to him about the book, then segue into seeing if he's meeting someone here.
>>23662445Ack, I explained that badly. Looking for an image/brief description of the guy we're tailing.
Rolled 7>>23662482>>23662473>>23662469We suck at talking huh
Rolled 29>>23662445Is that the New Red Leanings 3.0 or 4.0? I've heard good things about the new lemmings chapters, but was afraid of having to re-learn tae-wak-nau-chan.
Rolled 49>>23662445Kindly older gentleman that a real nice fellow
Rolled 87>>23662445Rolling.>>23662469>>23662473>>23662482Oh man you guys fucked up.
Rolled 41>>23662489World's most subtle spy.
Rolled 48>>23662513I agree with this gentleman
Rolled 5>>23662445A dapper gentlemen, who looks vaguely familiar and a bit green in the gills. He's reading a book on musical theory and dressed in an unassuming trenchcoat
Rolled 76>>23662542Would that mean we've found the rainbow connection? I'm down with that, been looking for years.
Rolled 23>>23662445A 9-to-5 businessman with little social awareness to him. Probably runs through Wall Street elbowing people in the face to get that one sale.
Rolled 39>>23662530>>23662513These guys know what's up.
Rolled 85>>23662489A mysterious man wearing a trenchoat with a metal mask.
>(a Gentleman's Special, advertised with a chalkoard drawing of a cup of coffee with silat sticks trying to look tough)Clever.
Rolled 46A high-school chemistry teacher
>>23662504I never knew what it was from, actually, I just liked the general cut of her jib. GISing it just now says it's from F/SN, the antagonist of one of the spinoffs.
>>23662592What the fuck would Q be doing in a coffee shop?
>>23662603She is the protagonist of one of the spinnofs
>>23662603Yeah, she's a character from Fate/Stay Night.
>>23662605Being a plant for our field test?
>>23662605Drinking a cup of coffee, of course. Honestly, some questions are... ugh.
>AEGIS>All-Earth Guardians and International Servantsor>All-Earth Guards of International Safetyor some variation therein. You can't fault the UN for trying. I prefer the former, personally. It sounds more grandiose.
>>23662592 >>23662499He looks up from the book and cocks his head. That metal mask is kinda creepy, but it's not like it's completely unheard of. They were in vogue as an alternative to medical masks back when the bird flu was going around, maybe he's hiding his identity by pretending to be sick?"I'm sorry to butt in while you're busy, but I just had to try. You look very...mysterious, with the metal mask and the trenchcoat and, you know. Like a robot or something."He just stares at you for a bit, the uncomfortable silence lingering. You stand and take your coffee, still smiling your brightest smile. "You know, like Daft Punk? I always thought Daft Punk were cool." You take a seat beside him on this amorphuous kinda-couch that coffee shops like this are in love with. He doesn't move away from you, at least."You ever wonder if it's actually the same two guys under the masks, though? Like when they tour? Could just be two random dudes who press play and then hang out for a bit, like when MF Doom...you know what? You don't look like an MF Doom kinda guy. You like metal?"You lean against him slightly, like you're trying to flirt. Which you're really bad at, apparently. You think you feel the USB drive in one of his pockets. Lucky break. You pickpocket it quickly.>leave now, this is all the awkwardness we can take>check the contents before we leave, make sure it's what we're here for.
>>23662768>check the contents before we leave, make sure it's what we're here for.
Rolled 49>>23662768>>check the contents before we leave, make sure it's what we're here for.but make sure he doesn't see us check
>>23662768>>leave now, this is all the awkwardness we can takeOh, for God's sake, leave, leave, leave and never come back or think about it again.
>>23662768>check the contents before we leave, make sure it's what we're here for.Not in front of the mark, obviously. If we've got something handheld or highly portable (which seems likely, like a superphone/computer), then duck into the bathroom and double-check the contents.
>>23662768>check the contents before we leave, make sure it's what we're here for.Do so by going to the bathroom and checking the contents in there, not in front of the guy.
>>23662374I'm pretty sure this game is going to be a little more subtle than Cannon Spike.PRETTY sure.
"I...you know what? Coffee goes right through me! I'll be right back!" you declare. He turns back to his book and shrugs.In the bathroom you pull out your phone. You thought it would be a cool spy gadget or at least a next-gen model, but it's actually just an older-generation Droid with a few spy-oriented apps. Maybe they give you the good stuff when you're a full agent.In any case, you lock the door and pull out an adapter. A quick peek through the drive shows a single word document titled LAUNCH CODES DO NOT LOSE JEFF I AM LOOKING AT YOU. Subtle. The door rattles. "One sec, I'm coming out," you say, reaching for the handle just as a gigantic fist comes crashing through it.Guess he noticed you took the drive.>What do?
>>23662206>a Gentleman's Special, advertised with a chalkoard drawing of a cup of coffee with silat sticks trying to look tough)I hope that drink is unofficial. Anon selling out after making a point of not selling out in the first quest would be disappointing.>>23662957Don't suppose there's a window we can make use of?
Rolled 80>>23662957JESUS CHRIST MAN, COMMON FUCKING COURTESYthrow the toilet cover at him
>>23662957If there is a window, defenstrate ourselves out of it and escape. We're in super-close quarters with a guy who can cleave a door. If we don't have to be here, don't be here.
Rolled 54>>23662957Grab the arm, and twist it, trying to submit our opponent and apply pressure to his neck and suffocate him.No fight, not so much noise, we are still the spy...
>>23662990Also, for a file dealing with "launch codes," you'd think it'd be super-encrypted...Wait, shit. Maybe this isn't the USB. No one can be this retarded.
Rolled 73>>23662957>Step One: make sure we didn't enter the men's room in mistake, this happened once before in Kentucky.>Step two: Get high. Jump on the toilet to the top of the stalls, more avenues of escape when you can jump down to wherever. >Step Three: Find a better exit. Windows: WTF is there a window in the ladie's bathroom that's big enough to jump out of easily? More likely, remove a ceiling panel and escape out the roof. Big metal guy's not that agile.
>>23662987Not a licensed drink, just standard coffeehouse stuff. There's one in my neighborhood that named all of its drinks after famous writers, this is just the SFQ universe's equivalent.
>>23663056In a coffee shop, the bathroom is usually one of those single-occupant things you can lock yourself in as opposed to having multiple stalls.
>>23662957Jump up and over the stall, is there a window we can jump through?If not, then use speed and gymnastics to evade and get around the guy and exit the bathroom, then run.
Rolled 12>>23663056Wait, are we a girl? Fetish /tg/ finally got Street fighting man and now we are the little girl? >Reads the previous thread.
>>23663088We are not a little girl, we're an agent in the same vein as Chun-Li, Cammy, and Regina.
>>23663088Yes, we are a woman this time. We don't have an official description of our new protagonist, but the initial pitch for SFQ: Special Ops involved something along the lines of >>23663042.Obviously we wouldn't visibly be wearing the skintight jumpsuit, but there you go. We've more than likely got civilian clothes over it right now.
>>23663088We're a woman in her late twenties. There's a strong correlation between women in fighting games and secret agents/law enforcement (Chun-Li, Cammy, Blue Mary, Vanessa, so on and so forth) so I thought if we were doing a quest set in that part of the world it would be a good homage.Either that or I'm a really, really patient pervert.
>>23662957Pocket the USB drive, rip the toilet tank cover off, and kick the door off right into the guy. Get out of the bathroom, throw the tank cover into the guy's face, and book it.We're not here to fight, and we already got our mission objective.
>>23663149That, or the woman is a cute ninja lady, a little-sister type, or a henchman to some other BBEG.
>>23662957Can't we just kick the guy on the head? I know he is wearing a metal mask, but a well put kick on it would be like hitting a bell. Think on the cartoons.
>>23663201He's got an arm sticking through the bathroom door he just cleaved through. I'm not in the mood to see what he'll do if he actually catches us.
You look for a way out, but it's a coffeeshop bathroom. No windows, single toilet, lots of bad local art. "Someone's in here," you say. The arm's owner doesn't say anything in response, only begins feeling around for the door knob."Fine, I'll be right out," you say. You pocket the drive and your phone. You take a moment to look in the mirror and straighten your tie. This is going to get ugly fast. Ah, well.You grab the cover off of the toilet's tank as an impromptu weapon. There's also a mop, but quarters are too close to make proper use of a staff.>Using the dice mechanic from Streets of Fighting until I think of a new one for this quest. Roll 1d22, taking the result either highest above ten or lowest beneath it. We're getting a slight boost from initiative and being (sorta) armed.
Rolled 13>>23663219Agreed. Voting for GTFO, either >>23662990out the window or>>23663056Through the ceiling.Also, rolling for Through The Sewers!>Rip toilet off hinges, place in front of door as stopper>Use thin, lithe, awesome secret agent powers to pry out the sewer tubing>Escape through the poop-chute cackling the entire time
Rolled 5>>23663305Break the arm
Rolled 3>>23663305"You need to learn to respect a woman's PRIVACY!"
Rolled 2>>23663305Think on something cheesy as we hit him with the toilet cover. "Check your privileges!"
Rolled 72>>23663305>Grab the arm, pulling back as a hold, and then slam the door open.>He'll have his arm through a door, facing it, while we run past him.>Door opens out? He'll be stuck in a corner, we use the toilet cover as a doorstop so he'll need to break the door somewhat.>In a foot-race we win. We can't kill him so we just need to elude.
Rolled 16>>23663305slam the door in his face
Rolled 18>>23663404We kick the door on his face, then we run out and break the tank cover on his ridiculous face. We finish with this: "Daft punk? No skillex? In the year of our lord 2013, what is wrong with you?"
Rolled 4>>23663305Do that thing, with the stuff.
Rolled 6>>23663305Punch him right in his possibly-robotic dick.
>>23663434If you got time to shittalk, you got time to run before the cops pick you up for property damage.
Rolled 3>>23663399Just went back and actually read the OP's post, durr 1d22 durrr.
>>23663483Fine, we hit him on the head as we shit talk him.
>>23663434>Our protagonist likes SkrillexI had such high hopes...
Rolled 8I don't think we're winning this round, guys. And certainly not if we express a fondness for Skrillex. Though I'm not actually sure that's what >>23663434 is going for.
Rolled 22>>23663628Voting to change pop culture references. Beat the shit out of him, tell him he 'dropped that beat like he dropped his skillz,' then think better of it and hum something by queen on the way out. Killer queen? Or having a good time?
>>23663628>>23663671It still has terrible implications.
>>23663434You start strong. You unlock and shoulder open the door, slamming it into his face and wrenching his arm painfully. While he's stunned from that you pull the toilet tank cover back and swing it hard into that metal mask. The ceramic cover shatters - which is totally awesome - and the mask grows a huge dent. If he wasn't stunned before, he is now.No point in sticking around to honorably battle him one-on-one, though. You slip past him and make a break for the door...>>23663379Only to feel him grab the neck of your suitjacket with his free arm, stopping you dead in your tracks. >roll 1d20, same rules!
>>23663678ffffffNevermind, looks like the second part of the fight won itself. One sec, writing.
>>23663704Dramatic reveal of spy-suit as we spin out of our jacket?Then we bolt?
Rolled 18>neck of the suit jacketWe are dapper spy!Roll out of the jacket with lithe, Jackie Chan-esque motion, leaving him holding it. Then pop him in the gut and take our jacket back.
Rolled 8>>23663733Dramatic reveal of khakis and a sweater. We're not secret agents yet, we're working on the catsuit.
Rolled 18>>23663704So, no need to roll?Awww, if this roll is a nat 20, we head bump him.
I think we're going to lose points for roughing up our target and destroying civilian property.
>>23663704Make sure to pat him down in case we're not missing any other USBs. Just to be safe.>>23663733Something like this?
>>23663853Moving to make Vanessa's overall look our "alternate costume" opposed to any catsuit/leotard. Any opposed?
>>23663678Over the years you spent a lot of time in and out of dojos. You call them that, but it would be more accurate to say that they were just extra rooms on base gyms where visiting instructors would teach what they knew for a little bit before they were transferred or your dad's work took you to another base. Three months of judo, six months of hapkido, a year of full-contact karate, six months of silat.On a vacation back to visit your family - your parents' families, at least, you never saw them enough to feel a connection - you found yourself browsing through a bookstore for something to read on the plane back. That's when you found the book that changed everything for you - The Tao of Jeet Kune Do. A simple argument that the martial arts should be fluid and dynamic, not rigid and predefined. Find what works for you, absorb new techniques but put thought into it. Starting that night you began reviewing everything you had encountered, analyzing techniques, adding and discarding them as necessary. You continued to read Bruce Lee's words and the words of other Jeet Kune Do experts, taking it all to heart. The fluid ready stance from Bruce Lee, the versatile forward lead of Teri Tom, all these and dozens more. More importantly, you learned to keep an open mind, react to every moment in a fight without predetermined notions of what to do.So when you find yourself trapped by a metal-masked man who grabbed your suit jacket, you simply lean forward and slip out of it. He stares at you blankly, puzzled. Obviously wasn't expecting something that elegantly simple. Also he looks like he's still stuck in the door. That will make this next part easier."Thanks for holding that, guy," you say, backing up just slightly. You need to be at a precise range for a stepping side kick. You know that in theory a kick at head height is frowned upon, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime golden opportunity.Your form is absolutely perfect.
>>23663895It's a little close to Anon's look (but with more bare skin). That's my only major objection.
>>23663895The noise his head makes when your kick connects is just beautiful. Just, beautiful. He slumps over. As much as he can while still stuck in the door, at least.You recover your suit jacket and put it back on, making sure the neck wasn't stretched out during the fight. It's a pain in the ass to get these tailored so you don't lose mobility in a fight, you'd prefer them to last. While you're thinking about it you pat him down. Having the launch codes in a Word document labeled LAUNCH CODES is just stupid."Looking for these?" a familiar voice asks. You turn to see your handler - the voice on the other end of the radio, the bottleneck between you and whatever great machinations you're a part of...and more importantly, the person who determines whether or not you're hired.>looking for our handler. 1d100 with an image or a description (or both), high roll wins
>>23663981Vanessa's a boxer. She wears gloves, and the "dress-shirt" beneath the jacket is sleeveless. She wears suspenders beneath the shirt to keep her pants up.Anon wore that sort of thing out of a sense of class. Vanessa wears it because it's comfy and not that far removed from her "professional" wear.
>>23664014This would be her at an elegant gala. This was the sort of thing Anon would wear to fights.
Rolled 63>>23663990A Japanese woman who always appears from unexpected places.
Rolled 93>>23663990She is that good at faking voices. And the mic can alter voices too!
Rolled 45I can't into images from this phone.Our handler looks like George Smiley. Older, distinguished, avuncular, wears a grey suit. And is utterly deadly. I mean Fairburn/Sykes deadly.
Rolled 99>>23664024I would like to second this, if I might. Also worth noting she is a world-class chef, and fights with a ladle, when she fights.
>>23664030I actually like this suggestion. Whip herself would be a little young, and this obviously isn't her, but on the whole, this works.Also, here's a flashier-dressed Vanessa (I think).
Rolled 79>>23663990Voting for Mitsuru-Sempai. Fencing Catsuit Ice Queen of Executions? Best boss.
>>23664070"Secret agent Iron Chef with trapdoors everywhere" seems a bit much.
>>23664024Wasn't that already Anon's handler in the first quest?
Rolled 86>>23664091fuck picture ass damn. NOW WITH UPPING
>>23664103Seconding this.Too many gimmicks.
>>23664104Sorta. Anon's handler was modeled off Kyouko from Rival Schools/Project Justice. It would be a little close, yeah.
>>23664103You know the Batmans and Gordons "I wish you would stop appearing and scaring the shit out of me." running joke?That instead of trapdoors.
>>23663895I'd be fine with it.. A redheaded woman in a suit was the original piece of art that stuck in my head for the character (even if it turned out to be from F/SN, which already has a strong quest presence, I think.) >>23664105>"Ma'am, as the leader of a major multinational corporation perhaps a more modest outfit would - oh, you've got a sword? Wear what you please. I'll show in the shirtless man with a cape."Being Mitsuru's executive assistant must be suffering.
>>23664125Why does she bother sending us in to do agent-ing when she's there on-site the whole time?
>>23664091>>23664105This works, too. I'm fine with either Whip or Mitsuru.
>>23664139I dunno. Lets ask her.
>>23664145Whip's our Air Force boss, Mitsuru's our Spy boss?We're transitioning ffrom the one to the other.
>>23664139That's true as well. Being a character like that who shows up everywhere no matter how remote the PC is just serves to undermine whatever the PC does.
>>23664159We were Air Force for a while before we transferred to Interpol. Now we're joining the UN taskforce known as AEGIS. This role is for our immediate boss and handler in AEGIS.
Rolled 20>>23664139because she cant do the whole fightey thing.or hacking.she's just good at hiding
>>23664161This. We're a field agent. Having our boss/handler in the field as well doesn't make any sense.She could show up on special occasions, though, but not in a "popping out of hiding" sense.
>>23664191...If she can't do anything but hide, why is she even there?This doesn't make any sense.
>>23664182Oh, right. Not sure, then.
Rolled 51>>23664161Looks like there is some opposition to the "batman handler", so what if we try again with another handler? Or just pick the whip suggestion, which rolled a 93?Does the handler have to be female?
>>23664139At this point our handler is on-site to evaluate our skills. There seems to be some kinda backlash against Touka. I'll put it to a vote for you guys - pseudo-Mitsuru, pseudo-Whip or pseudo-Touka?>probably going to only have one or two more posts for the quest, just found out I've got an errand I have to take care of before business closing time.
Rolled 17>>23664132If you include Mitsuru, please let the shirtless man show up some time as GM fiat. The one time we totally biff all our rolls and are about to die, he jumps in THROUGH THE FLOOR (Yes, we're in space) and begins beat-em-upping his way through. No he's not here to save us, he's just on his around-the-world training mission.
Rolled 80>>23664214Pseudo-whip all day, everyday!
Rolled 3>>23664214I have no idea who these people are, so I'mma let dice decide it for me.Whip sounds even more silly for agent then pseudo-batman, though.
>>23664214Mitsuru or Whip are fine by me.
Rolled 94>>23664214I think it's obvious I'm on the Mitsuru train. Of course, i'm outnumbered I bet, but that's never stopped me before...
>>23664238That's the name of the original character from King of Fighters. She was another of NESTS's projects and ends up helping K' and company take them down before joining the Ikari Warriors. She's the sister of K'.
Rolled 2I likewise have no idea who they're 'meant' to be (and don't really care). FWIW though, the handler who's always there (or always available) is a classic spy trope (Q from Bond, for example, and yes I know he's not a handler)
>>23664293Mitsuru, on the other hand, is from the Persona branch of the Shin Megami Tensei series. Specifically, she was one of the main characters in Persona 3: an elegant no-nonsense student council member who practices fencing. She makes a comeback as a special guest in Persona 4 Arena.
Rolled 60>>23664336What? So you guys want a student to be our handler? Just because she practices fencing? It made even less sense than the batman proposal.
>>23664379I should clarify that Mitsuru returns in P4A as a fully grown woman, seen in >>23664105. This is the Mitsuru people are talking about.
>>23664379I think that was just an aesthetics thing, though it doesn't make much sense to me either.
>>23664214Whip at least makes sense as an agent/assassin turned mercenary, working as a consultant for AEGIS.
Rolled 48>>23664336>>23664379In the P4a cameo, she runs a secret organization that she gets government support for despite the fact that it's their stated purpose to hunt monsters, " things that don't exist," simply because her and her family's such a political player than they CAN. Also, she shows up in the small town with a robot and a wandering martial artist with a limo this big. Between the three of them, the robot's the one doing the best job of fitting in.Of course, I could just be gushing because i'm a huge fanboy. That is possible.
>going with Mitsuru for now. Whip strikes me as more of a field agent. Touka may show up later as some sort of extremely deep cover agent with supernatural hiding and cooking skills who neglected all of her other spy training."You handled that well," she says. She's overdressed for this neighborhood, but so elegantly nobody's going to complain. Still sticks out against the thrift-store-retro-cool vibe of the chair she's sitting in."Thanks, boss," you grumble, tossing her the USB stick. She catches it without spilling a drop of her tea. "So this was a training exercise?""Sort of," she says, blowing on her drink to cool it. She's drinking from a proper teaset instead of the cardboard cups everyone else is. Did she bring them herself? "We released the data ourselves to try to find a leak, and this gentleman here was the courier. By checking the numbers on the drive we can see which department leaked it. Thanks to your efforts one more underground courier is out of commission and now we can plug our leak.""So that's why the file wasn't even encrypted?" you ask. "That's just...huh. Can I also assume you sicced him on me? He caught on to the missing USB stick too quickly.""Of course," she says. "If I'm going to hire you to be our squad's CQC expert I wanted to see how you handle yourself in the field.""And?" you ask."Your victory was quick and elegant. Exactly what I look for." She stands and offers you her hand. "Welcome to AEGIS, agent. Now let's pick out a codename and..."She freezes as she hears sirens in the distance. You're both suddenly aware of how terrified the rest of the coffee shop patrons look. At least the last time people tore up the place in a fight it was for the World Warrior tournament."It's the fuzz! Cheese it!" your new boss says. The pair of you dash out the front door and make for the waiting limo.

Rolled 29, 35 = 64>>23664563>Mighty WeaselI thought we chose the female protagonist this game? Between this and the Capuchin...
Rolled 34, 74 = 108>>23664576And you're Soulless Ram.
Rolled 94, 59 = 153>>23664581type of monkey. the one from Pirates of the Carribean
Rolled 92, 3 = 95>>23664550Rolling for laughing gecko...>>23664581I think he refers to capuchin monkey.
>>23664587I thought we were Black Lotus?And the Chinese agent was Water Dragon.
Rolled 18, 86 = 104>>23664596>>23664610>>23664600tank beaver, Solid Firefly, and fearful goat.'We are NOT getting good name here
>>23664587I want to call us the "____ Hornet," as an obvious shout-out to the Killer Bee.
>>23664379Like with most of the "give me a character" rolls I'm taking more the broad strokes of the personality and abilities of the character. We're not presuming Mitsuru herself has shown up, but rather someone with the same level of command abilities and imperiousness. I think she's actually a good fit, come to think of it. She was your mission command for the first few hours of Persona 3. I don't know what her deal in Persona 4 Arena is, but I only bought that game last week and haven't worked my way through the entire story mode yet.>>23664521AEGIS has the authority to get them out of the situation, but it's a pain in the ass and a lot of paperwork. Also I just thought it would be funny.>>23664550Aw, beat me to posting it. But yeah, if we want a Metal Gear-style codename I'd be down for that. It should probably reflect her role as CQC specialist, though. And...something about her personality? So far all we know is she's into Jeet Kune Do and seems a little impatient.Anyway, I've gotta get going. Thanks for reading, everyone, I hope you liked it! We'll be back tomorrow for more spy shenanigans.
>>23664581>capuchinIt's a monkey, apparently.
>>23664625blade pirannah isn't bad
>>23664616Black Lotus was the name of the presumed Chinese agent, because it's hard to be more stereotypically Chinese than that.
Rolled 90, 40 = 130>>23664625Talk for yourself, I want to be the fearful goat!
Rolled 35, 22 = 57>>23664625I dunno, I think Tank Beaver's got some potential.Blade Pirahna / Pirahna Blade btw
Rolled 29, 73, 66, 51, 58, 23 = 300Well, here's three goes.
>>23664647Maybe. I'd say Lance Hornet or Sword Hornet or something, but that makes us sound like a Maverick from Mega Man X.
Guys, I don't care what other names you get. I get too much fun out of Giant Capuchin and Thus I wanna draw it. Can anyone explain what the protagonist looks like?
Rolled 64, 97 = 161>>23664650Brawler Eagle might take this one, it's the closest to the pugilist/impatient. Maybe.
Rolled 79, 89 = 168>>23664656Thunderstorm Otter, Insane Bull, Metal Falcon.I don't think the first two work. Ambivalent about the third.
>>23664616Black Lotus could definitely work. I thought it was chosen for the rival agent, though? It does fit the running joke that the SFQ world is full of secret fa/tg/uys. ...in that case, I'll probably just save up some of these MGS names for when we have to fight a pseudo-Foxhound organization.
Rolled 42, 12 = 54>>23664673Something along the lines of a red-headed Cammy mixed with Vanessa's clothing. And I have to admit, Giant Capuchin is freakin' hilarious.
Rolled 20, 90 = 110>>23664675>Hunter HedgehogI don't think so.>>23664677>Venom BearNope.
>>23664675>Metal Falcon.>Brawler Eagle>Blade Pirannahany of these work
>>23664673Unless SFM says otherwise, see >>23663042 and >>23663853. Also, this pic.
Rolled 91, 32 = 123>>23664696>Unstoppable IguanaWhat the
Rolled 45, 44 = 89>>23664711>Liquid LionNope.
Rolled 12>>23664711oooh, liquid lion sounds neat
Rolled 19, 79, 73, 100 = 271Whee, dice!
>>23664708Also, >>23664022, >>23664075 and >>23664245 are the same character, so yeah.
>>23664702Rocket Hornet would also work, since our fighting style is based on agility and piercing strikes from out of nowhere.
Rolled 92, 89 = 181>>23664729>Vulcan Dingoyes
Rolled 72, 16 = 88>>23664729>vulcan dingothese getting better, worse, or both?
Rolled 80, 31 = 111>>23664729>Vulcan DingoThis doesn't fit us at all, but this needs to show up somewhere. Some sort of Australian agent.
Rolled 61, 84, 98, 57 = 300>>23664735Arrow Weasel and... Praying Seal?
Rolled 29, 37 = 66>>23664696Unstoppable Iguana will work. That along with giant capuchino should be the finalist contenders.
>>23664739I'm partial to Rocket Hornet or Metal Falcon (or some mix therein).
Rolled 37, 87 = 124>>23664745>Solid Beargot's my vote. now. again.
Rolled 6, 25 = 31>>23664754>Hiding TigerCrouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon reference?I like it.
Rolled 55, 49, 4, 56 = 164>>23664755Brass Chimpanzee, Monk LamaWhat?
>>23664758When did you decide those two would be the only acceptable codenames?
Rolled 83, 25 = 108>>23664766>Machinegun OwlThis also needs to show up somewhere.
Rolled 42, 30 = 72I feel like we should stop rolling and start voting
>>23664758Funny, but not names I like or want to play as.
Rolled 39, 99 = 138>>23664782>Changing OwlDiceroller likes owls.
>Slasher ChihuahuaI don't even, but I am terrified.>Shotgun DeerThat doesn't even make sense.
>>23664786> Unstoppable FlamingoAbsolutely Fabulous
Rolled 37, 31 = 68>>23664763>Laughing BaboonYes!
>>23664796Menacing Kangaroo, partner to Vulcan Dingo?
>>23664786We're obviously not going to be able to decide in this thread. I imagine SFM will take a small list of the best and put it up to a vote in the next thread.
>>23664796Vulcan Dingo and Menacing Kangaroo need to be a duo.
>>23664802Clearly the Deer is tired of being hunted and is now the hunter
>>23664804This. Do this.We're totally fancy enough to pull off Unstoppable Flamingo.
>>23664825No we can't. We're elegant, but we're not that FABULOUS. Now, if Macho Man Randy Savage up there in the thread was an agent, HE would be the Unstoppable Flamingo.
>>23664820Ah, yes, of course.Rolling with my own dice...>Wizard FerretI kinda like it.>Bashing PumaMite b cool?
>>23664825Hell no, we're not getting that much pink. Let that be some American from Florida.
>>23664845Point.I rescind my recommendation, but we need Unstoppable Flamingo somewhere.
Rolled 31, 35 = 66>>23664864Let me roll again.If I have to choice, I would vote for unstoppable iguana.
Rolled 43, 66 = 109>>23664550Rolling.
>>23664904>Unheard LemmingWe keep getting a good half and a terrible half.
Rolled 62, 83, 27, 86, 90, 42, 40, 67, 47, 88, 70, 17, 84, 21, 66, 37, 32, 40, 17, 50, 74 = 1140>>23664550roll
>>23665077lol I fucked up, let's go with the first two
Rolled 7, 30 = 37>>23665077>62, 83Crystal orangutan>27, 86Tornado piranha>90, 42Earthquake coyote>40, 67Cunning muskrat>47, 88Fighter sloth>70, 17Berserker crocodile>84, 21Silent Hawk>66, 37Insane cheetah>32, 40Blast ocelot>17, 50Knife HyenaNone struck as particularly good.
>>23665172I am thinking that perhaps this chart is not so good for decent codenames.
>>23665172Silent Hawk and Knife Hyena are alright, just not for this protagonist.
C'mon, guyz, for how long are we going to stretch this out? We had our good share of giggles, what about a serious vote for a change? What about this? we name 3 adjectives and 3... subjects (?), the one who get more votes wins.I vote for machinegun, cyclone and rushing; as for subjects, cheetah, hawk or wasp would be ok.Don't let this quest die! D:
>>23665767That would probably be best for serious, but when was the last time we were serious here?>Cyclone HawkThat could work, we're the hawk - a cool metaphor for badass - in the middle of the 'cyclone,' the chaos all around us. And think about how these quests usually go. Calm in the storm? Bro, we are the lurker in the storm - When everything goes batshit nuts, then we strike our prey
>>23665767Don't worry. I'mma hamfist this sketch first, then I'll somehow add it to the character sketch.Also, this obviously is my vote.
>>23665767How is it dying? This is the first edition of the THIRD quest in this series, and the main quest is already done for the day. People are just dicking around with code names right now.
>>23665847Crap, haven't noticed SFM said that was everything for today. Still, we should figure out some way to get a decent name that does not imply rollings...
>>23665938I'm still sort of fond of Black Lotus or [something about hand to hand] Hornet.>>23665847It's nice to bump it now and again for the evening crowd, I suppose? I know there are people who like the quest and aren't around for the usual afternoon runtime. Maybe I can do a spinoff or something on the occasional evenings I have free.
>>23667448>or [something about hand to hand] Hornet.Rocket or Dynamite work because of the explosive force we have behind our strikes as well as to describe the speed of our high-speed fighting style.Hammer or Machinegun also work for how hard we hit.
>>23667448I'm partial to some manner of Hornet myself. Black Lotus is more in line with our would-be Chinese rival.Hell, why not go full hog and be the Killer Hornet?
>>23667595Also, we should probably have a real name to go with our codename. The original suggestion was Lindsay Douglas, though if she's from Metro, she's probably not English.
>>23667448>>23667497>>23667595If we're the Hornet, I expect us to be taunted by some manner of "Buzz, buzz, buzz."
>>23667708Such taunting will be met with a boot to the face.
>>23667708>letting people know your codename>laughingoperators.jpg
>>23667800If it works for a CIA agent, it works for us. Plus, Cammy wasn't too terribly subtle about her past. If anything, the name will get some taunting around the office for a while.
>>23667708I wonder if he would be our ultimate nemesis...
>>23667880>taking any Chris Tucker character seriouslyLet's not kid ourselves here.
>>23667708And then we sting them in the face.Hornets are assholes.
>>23667925Oh, c'mon, is not like this quests are all seriousness and deep galore. Also, it would be a good change for a boss.
Had to do something else instead of sketching anything. Decided to just throw up some colors and see what happens after it.>>23667448>Black lotus and HornetI'm still thinking that Giant Capuchin should be something.
>>23667925Everyone in SFQ has been ridiculous.
>>23668254>I'm still thinking that Giant Capuchin should be something.We'll just have a very, very large monkey at some point.
>>23668128Do we really want to be that much of a Cammy rip-off though? I thought we'd moved past that to some sort of Vanessa/Cammy/F/SN hybrid character. Besides, it'd be terrible if someone got our code names mixed up.Actually, that would be hilarious. We should totally do that. Instead of Killer Bee / Killer Hornet, though, we should play with synonyms. Deadly Hornet? Poison Wasp? Vivisection Anthophila? And every time we're introduced, someone says "...That's the Killer Bee?" And we will look down and whisper, NO, before punching them in the face.
>>23668254And the anonsketch.
>>23668269If you wanted me not to support naming ourselves Hornet, you shouldn't have posted Johnny Ridden.Johnny Ridden is great.
>>23668269>"Hornets are bigger and nastier than bees!">"Yeah, they're bigger, all right.">"..."
>>23668269Guys, have you considered how easily is to word play with hornet and horny?
>>23668269Stinger Hornet.'Cuz a hornet stings (duh).And our strikes are sharp like a stinger.
>>23668283Those eyes belong on a stoner. Otherwise, I like it. I pictured her with shorter hair, personally.
>>23668359>"This hornet's stinger is no joke!">"I got a stinger of my own I wanna horn you with.">"..."
>>23668384Like couple of fucking strawberries... God damn eyes.Like so?
>>23668524Little better. I'm sure it'll improve as time goes on.
>>23668553Sure. Now she is only in the "I hope they don't notice I'm high as a kite. Ah fuck the distance hurts my eyes, I will now blink more often to fix this."
>>23668609I think that's an issue of the eyes themselves. They are exceedingly flat and angular.
>>23668524Also, I just noticed you shortened half her hair. You can bring it down some to, like, the nape of the neck. Again, that's just me.
>>23668633>>23668697I'll probably do some better drawing at some point when SFMan chimes in. Maybe Eyepatch Joe from last quest. Haven't really sketched or drawn anything in some while. But first I gotta sleep. Thanks for the input, I'll do something about it in some distant future...
>AEGISWe should just call her Artemis or Diana and go with it
>>23668794I'm just happy you're doing it in the first place. It's good to see talents on display.
>>23668806Not-Mitsuru will probably be named Artemis, that's solid.Drawguy: you're awesome and you should feel awesome.
>>23670231Did you ever actually figure out what AEGIS meant, or are you just gonna rip >>23662748?
>>23670368Might rip that one. Might make 'nobody in the agency has clearance to know' a thing.
