>>26628362Posting in support of this list.
>>26627981This list seems good to me.
You know, I think it's time for some recap actuallyGoing to whip up a nice tl;dr, and I invite you all to join me since I dont' want to plunge into the plot with too few people
>>26628722Since I missed last thread a summary would be an ice way for me to read the last one and not miss anything.
Well that was fast.Best Die-Roller Ready!>>26628362>>26627936Supporting, Victory Whiskey for when we are victorious. Cigars on hand for when the fat lady sings.
Lets use that Sattelight phone and see if any of our friends are willing to drop us a Sutherland or something packing a bit more of a punch.

>>26628362Wait, couldn't we pass the time listening to some classical with CC?
Meta Game Quest : Code Geass tl;drNick was just your average guy, well not average at all actually. He was a NEET, a ludicrously wealthy NEET at that. Being Brittanian nobility will do that for you. Apparently it also makes you a conduit for magic powers and shit showing you the next couple months of existence for the major players as they were. Who knew right?Inspired by this foresight, Nick rushed out of his bedroom, forsaking his battlestation, and jumped on his moped so he could throw himself headfirst into the plot of the world and very rapidly started to unravel The Scenario. He became Lelouch's confidant and fed him information that quickly drove the Black Knights to power. Everything was going swimmingly until he donned the mask of Nemo for the first major time and rode into battle. The enemy was routed, but they made off with most of his leg.And then The Scenario made it's first major change. All too quickly the Brittanians had the upper hand once more. Suspicion and doubt plagued his allies as one major threat after another threw themselves at him. Villetta nearly unveiled him, the Black Knights rejected him, and Lelouch did not trust him. Worst of all was Frank, his old pizza delivery boy, who kidnapped him for V.V.'s research. Nick was finally rescued after building a grudge a mile wide, attaining his Geass of prophesy, and rejecting V.V.'s immortality for a moment, at the price of nearly murdering Lelouch.In short order, he had to deal with the fallout of Frank's Geass, and a tag team of Lord Jeremiah Gottwald and Mao the mindreader. He made swift use of his quick wits, smooth talking, far too much geass use, and spilling a few secrets, but when the dust cleared, he was farther ahead than he had ever expected. The officers of the BK trusted the controlled use of Geass, Loyalty had been secured, Villetta had been converted, Mao was dead, and soon Frank would follow.1/3
>>26629146V.V.'s compromising knowledge of the future was a threat however, which drove him and Lelouch into hiding as they dealt in secret with Kyoto and the relics of the Japan Liberation Front. Where they had to prove themselves was in the rescuing of the surviving JLF officers, at the docks. Thinking he had been clever, Nick had invested all the money he could into military supply companies. His cousin had other plans however, and funneled it straight into Camelot. Nick is an Asplund, and fast friends with Lloyd, who happily used the funds to create a float system attachment for the Lancelot. Suzaku Kururugi was more than proficient with its use, and destroyed both the JLF and the Black Knights before any counter measure's could be implemented. So Nick did what he does best, and gambled it all, and won.After that night, Jeremiah, Diethard, and Suzaku were all integral gears in the machinery of the Black Knights, and Viletta's betrayal was dealt with by the power of the Lancelot. Better yet, Rakshata made Nick an offer, and replaced his crippled leg with cybernetics. After his recovery, the Black Knights set sail for Shikine Island for what they hoped would be their final battle. With the gleam of glory in his eye, and fluttering heart strings for Kallen, Nick set out to battle.Princess Euphemia rejoined her knight and her brother, and the battle was sure to be a victory, but there was an anomaly unforeseen in The Scenario, and unforeseen by his geass. Frank was in the Avalon's Gawain, fighting for Schneizel, and Xingke fought alongside him. The battle was harsh, dangerous, bloody, and evolved Nick's geass against his will, but under his power and that of his allies, he prevailed. Frank failed to bring him to Kamine Island to meet with V.V., instead his accomplice ate a bullet, and soon he did as well. Just before collapsing into Kallen's arms, Nick played his part in Lelouch's schemes, and ensnared Xingke.2/3
>>26629152He managed to push his fate off one last day, and was able to enjoy his birthday the way he never dreamed of as a lonely NEET. But now the reckoning has come, and the will of fate cannot be stopped. Whether he succumbs to weakness, or fulfills his destiny is yet to be decided.Hope I didn't goof anything up in trying to write it concisely and quickly
>>26628362alright, going with this, writing now
>>26629163Well you probably shoulda mentioned that we went full Pineapple Salad after the party.
>mfw I didn't mention Daft Punkfuck guys, fuck.I'm so sorry
>>26629221I can hardly blame you since we've been lax in asking the Arc Question of this little spin-off.
9mm submachine gun, 9mm pistol, 4 smoke grenades, 2 flashbang grenades, 2 C4 breaching charges, 5 flares, 1 sakuradite detonator, 1 satellite cellphone, 150 9mm rounds, a combat knife, a 12 gauge combat shotgun, 25 12 gauge shells, body armor, sunglasses, and a fine cigar, all for you courtesy of Frank. And for C.C. is a 9mm submachine gun, 150 9mm rounds, a .45 revolver, 6 .45 bullets, sunglasses, and her own cigar.She merely humors you and dons the equipment as you strap the weapons to your body.The boat is currently sitting at an old wooden dock that seems to have been recently used and damaged. Leading up the hill slopes into the heart of the island is a recently cleared path, but no people. C.C. casually leads the way up the track as you spin your head around watching for enemies.At the mouth of the cave, you notice an unactivated knightmare and a small table set up with a chess board in a pleasant clearing.Proceed onFind cover and waitTry to hijack the deactivated knightmareOther
>>26629264>asking the Arc Question.Elaborate.
>>26629358So.. Do you like Daft Punk?
>>26629355Are any of the pieces moved?
>>26629355>and a small table set up with a chess boardI find this to be far more ominous than the giant robot.>[x]Other"So, C.C., do I get to know why we're here yet?"
>>26629392at this distance you can't tell if they are merely scattered or mid play, you could investigate it.
>>26629355>>26629392>>26629413Agreed.Investigate the chessboard, ask the lady a question.
>>26629355>and a small table set up with a chess boardA Schneizel trap, or Mao is still alive.
Any other opinions?
>>26629803I guess not. Let's keep going.
>>26629803Go, and may the dice gods have mercy on our souls.
Alrighty, writingHow would all of you feel about condesing all of arc 2 into one thread as an epilogue?
>>26629895If we don't have enough players...
>>26629895I have a counterproposition! Do you like Daft Punk?
>>26629895You seem to enjoy writing for us rather than with us, so go ahead.
>>26629955I think we all enjoy Daft Punk by this point, Two.>>26629959And I mean this not as a rude backhanded comment, but more because >>26629933we really don't have enough players left to justify trying to keep to the questing route for another arc.
>>26629984Seasonal break perhaps?
>>26629991If we could get some reinforcement by a mid-season epilogue/prologue, sure, but /tg/ is a fickle hive mind, not bent ot any purpose save their immediate amusement and non-standard pursuit of trends
This is a trap if you've ever seen one. You signal for C.C. to follow you in the foliage over to the knightmare. Sweeping your gun from side to side you wait, carefully. But it's just you and the birds, so you creep out. You trespass into the glade, and no one objects. You scout the knightmare, and there is no pilot. You approach the chessboard, and there is no king.Actually there is, it's just placed illegally next to the other king. All the pieces on the board are in odd places actually. A white bishop is toppled, a white rook is upside down, only two pawns remain, the white queen is to the side, the black rook and bishop are missing, and there's a queen and rook from an entirely different board set. It is as if a child were playing pretend with the board."So, C.C., do I get to know why I'm really here yet?" you ask as you finally relax and look at the cave entrance."Inside that cave is a very special door, that leads not to this Earth.""Yeah, I know. I've seen it, remember?""Right, but it is on the other side of this door that the source of Geass lies. It must be the source of your other power as well. It is the only source of answers for us. Do you not sense the strings of fate tugging you?"You try to scratch the back of your head, but your mask is in the way and it comes across as far too whimsical. "Guess not. Subtly is a bit beyond me.""I've noticed."Continue in (1d100 please)Hijack the knightmare (1d100 please)stakeoutother
>>26630112Okay, lads, this here is a foreshadowing puzzle. Let's get cracking.
Rolled 31>>26630112[x] Hijack the knightmare (1d100 please)HAHA, time to shit our pants.
Rolled 5>>26630112[x]Hijack the knightmare (1d100 please)WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
>>26630112CA, a bit of confirmation. Since we triggered a death flag, we've no plot armor and only the first roll counts, yeah?
Rolled 1>>26630182Got nothing clever to say.>>26630193Heh.
Rolled 67>>26630112Knock the white kick over with the black king."Checkmate"Continue in.
Rolled 44>>26630198NO. NO MY NAME IS TWO, NOT ONE!
>>26630198You see, you are just this guy. This monument to annoying failure.I say stakeout, but that one will be counted anyways.
Rolled 10, 18, 9, 96, 56 = 189>>26630193I dunno, what Could go wrong?You do have a death flag at the moment
>>26630193...I've been denied>>26630180>>26630112"I do however, sense someone is attempting to foreshadow events or at least having been aware for quite some time">verbalize as much as we have knowledge ofWhite bishop is either Mao or FrankWhite queen is Marianne, she has not yet been introducedBlack rook and Bishop might be ourselves and CC>or we could be the queen and rook from the other board set seeing as we did not exist in the previous Scenario in an important sense>>26630201At the very least, do this>>26630236shut up
Oh, and for those of you who missed a thread or two ago, a deal was made by the few. Your negative crit range is 1-6, but your positive crit range is 85-100
>>26630193>>26630198So, Two multiplied our failure by two. Wonderful.
Rolled 11>>26630263and yet we have two failures and not a single crityou know tg dice don't like to roll high in this quest
>>26630195You have plot armor, and you can burn it. It just doesn't actually trigger a reroll or cancel a negative crit. If you roll after the first one, it doesn't actually matter
Rolled 42>>26630300so burning plot armor is currently pointless?
>>26630278Only if we commit to actions that require a roll>>26630112>>26630180>>26630256voting for this

Rolled 30>>26630411We're all going to die.
writing nowYou all should probably try to figure out how the deathflag actually works
Rolled 33>>26630411May as well roll again. There's no difference between 6 and 12 feet under.
Rolled 13, 89, 58, 59, 95, 39, 65, 34, 38, 59 = 549you know, has anyone else noticed that I roll really fucking well for some reason?
>>26630472Being able to roll multiple dice probably makes the seed go wibbly.
Rolled 54>>26630472Chi-square works better with more variables?
>>26630472Because /tg/>>26630496batch rolls do tend to have a different distribution curve than grouped singles>>26630456Like we tried to figure out how our Geass works? And are still figuring out?I know the point of this quest is to metagame, but metagaming the metagame is not only exhausting, but slightly beyond the average skillset for this board
>no crit"Hold on, we're not going in there just yet. There's just no kill like overkill," you say as you climb up into the sutherland."You can't bring that through the gate you know.""Yeah, but if there is someone in there, it sure as well help. I'm not immortal like you ya witch."The whole thing is locked with the most clever or locks. The kind needing a key, which you don't have."If you waste any more time then we will be found. And what good are all those weapons weighing you down if you just climb into a knightmare?"There is one button you haven't pressed yet."Just give up Nemo, we need to move."Push the buttonProceed into the cave (1d100)Other
>>26630530Agreed. I'm not going to try reading your mind Arthur. Your position and ours are very different and whatever hints you give aren't very good at all.Then pretty much requiring us to know said thing that you only vaguely hint at to have any sort of edge is annoying.I miss the first few Metagame quests when this was lighthearted and fun with Nick just being a crazy mofo.
>>26630595>[x]Push the buttonI don't think Nick can resist.
>>26630595I like shiny things.Push the button.

>>26630595>>26630644OH SHIT. Do we have a phone? Can we call up Lloyd and describe the Knightmare Frame to him?
>>26630625>>26630626Alright, fuck this quest, you people are clearly unable to discern danger, useless pursuits, and something actually fucking productive from each other and are clearly only pointing at the most amusing options.FUCKYOUYou too, Two, you twit.I shall no longer vote or roll, only advise, as much as that has ever been considered.
Rolled 11>>26630595>Proceed into the cave (1d100)I really would rather not do something incredibly stupid.
>>26630685Clearly because amusing options are amusing. And I participate in this for amusement, as a hobby.I want to push a button that was clearly stated to be there by the QM.Because it sounds like fun.. Because that's what I want to have.. And.. Guys.. We haven't been having fun have we?
>>26630703like rolling before the vote is locked in?cause that's really fucking stupid considering Arthur just told us we fucked it up and posted the rules to read AGAIN
>>26630764I am not, because of actions like yours.pushing a button is an action and as players we have nigh infinite number of actions that can be hypothetically taken in any situationso, you can't push every 'button' Two, which one will you be pressing, the clever button or the obvious trap button?
>>26630801Ahh, the amusing option. The bane of all quests.
>>26630765Sorry, had that on from another thread.Of course, according to the rules, the roll doesn't count.
>>26630801He specifically said that there was one button that we hadn't pressed yet.So I'm opting to press that button.>>26630836It's tempting.. It's the button you know you shouldn't press.. But you know that you just need to find out what it does.Anyway, whatever happens happens. I cast my voting privilege for that.. Hell, if I'm even still counted by Arthur. This ride's been bumpy, hasn't it?
>>26630898The rides been bumpy no thanks to you.
>>26630765I was only peeved about the "Shit guys! Let's dodge the crit fail by taking an option that doesn't roll!"
>>26630898A button on a suspiciously abandoned knightmare frame that is secure as all fuck otherwise. What the fuck do you think it could possibly do?
>>26630923I unify you all with mutual distaste towards me, thus making you all co-operate.. Then when I finally stop namefagging, you'll all be able to suffer this quest in peace and harmony.Just kidding, that's not my Keikaku. I just want to see what happens, and I'm apparently not entirely alone.
Press the buttonYes or Noand please stop stirring up strife
>>26630685Pic related. This is what I see you as.If you don't like what I voted for, vote against it. I'm not taking it back because NIXON SAID IT WAS BAD AND HE'S THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN BE RIGHT.Besides the obvious amusement, we already decided to search the Sutherland. I see it as being thorough.Also, obligatory go fuck yourself.
>>26630930I assume that was more for the fact of, "let's not take unnecessary risks, especially now that we just crit-failed something" rather than an attempt to cheat.You, on the other hand, seem to assume devious intent where we clearly have none at all and it has been you, sir, that has thrown every obstacle in the players' way in order to have your fun and yours alone.>>26631012>spoilers on two lines>no sage for politeness>clearly a moronAnd I don't count Rustled as your supporter, he seems to be in here for his own amusement rather than playing the quest.
>>26631051Here, here!>>26631049Press the button!
>>26631049Push the button.
>>26631051I will throw this hissy fit and you'll damn well deal with it until that button doesn't set us back somehow, even though Code is a narrativist who enjoys fucking with us.
If you aren't having fun you could you know, bring it up with a reason and it could be mended. I'm not a tyrant, I'm just a cat. I've just been carrying on the story as best I can.
Rolled 1To the dice then since you are split down the middle1 is push2 is don't
>>26631197you aren't in the wrong this time, Code, this is player-on-player strifeWhile Nixon is a little priss and should get over himself, One/Two has always been the idiot who does stupid shit and then thumbs his nose at the detractors because he 'just wants to do something fun' and defends himself with people who vote alongside for whatever reason they might have but have yet to announce>>26631231>>26631254goddammit, Nixon get back to voting, we need you
>>26631141Okay, I'm lost. What exactly are you pissed about? Is it the button? Is it the fact that I'm enjoying myself?You weren't this grumpy before you lost the Nixon avatars.
>>26631263>>26631231Fine, fine, getting over myself.
>>26631274Pretty sure Tricky Dick isn't mad at you.
>>26631280here, you've made me feel bad, have a Villetta
>>26631231Excellent...>>26631263>Still assuming I'm a stupid shit.I only defended my vote with the fact that I wasn't the only one going for it I'm not the odd man out.. so what? And I made my intention clear when I kept saying that we needed to deafen ourselves. It was a gamble worth taking at the time to screw over frank. But no, instead we got out of that because we had sniper support and the wonder twins opened the cockpit instead of crushing nick's legs like whatever anon that opposed my plan said that they'd do.If I'm wrong on the internet, idgaf.If I'm right on the internet... You know what, i'll follow the same creed. idgaf. Instead of going around like a boss, asking people if they like daft punk and turning battles around damn near singlehandedly, We've gotten caught up in bitching at each other, blocking up our awesomesauce and not acting like the crazy lucky idiot that Nick's always been.Shit, I miss Metaquest from like.. I dunno.. 7 threads ago or so.. We had an awesome start..
>>26631398She also turned out to be a traitorous bitch and broke Ohgi's heart.
"Nemo, what are you doing in there?"The button is still shiny. It's never been pressed before. "There's a button.""It's a knightmare, there are many buttons.""But this one isn't like the other buttons. It's a two stage button. A doomsday button. I've never pressed a doomsday button before.""You know those are only used for buttons that should never ever be accidentally pressed right?" The springs are still fresh and the plastic snaps back with a delicious click. "Nemo? What are you doing? Nemo. Stop." You press the button.Ten seconds later your head bounces off the seat and back into the dash, rattling your brain around as the thrusters peter out and the cliff face crumbles behind you. "God damnit. Who the fuck designs an auto eject that can be triggered without the knightmare on? I thought that's what the levers were for," you grumble as the rocks crack and the ejection pod slides back out.Thousands of birds around you take flight and flee as you scream and watch the ejection pod drop out of the cliff and plummet back to the ground, the parachutes barely accomplishing anything. the front of the pod smashes into the ground as you fly out of the seat and hit the dash again because seatbelts are for cowards."Nemo, get out, someone is coming."Tacticool weapon use (explain)Unleash your geassSay somethingOther

>>26631418You know, I tried to raise the stakes in these last threads to make things more climactic and what not, fully expecting more chaotic and reckless behavior fueled by lucky crits. I'm not entirely certain how I managed to get completely serious panic from everyone.If one of you has a thought on how I buggered the tone of this quest, do speak up.

>>26631501You gave us something we want, and then threatened to take it away if we do something stupid, fail, or both.Chaotic and reckless behavior comes from not having any stakes in what happens.
>>26631398don't. I have a very thick skin and only improve through failure
>>26631501>fully expecting more chaotic and reckless behavior fueled by lucky crits. In some bizzaro way, Code was my gentleman of color all along. I just never noticed.. Though you were the one that proposed we drop the dice.. the dropping of the dice allowed for more punishment from the reality of our crazy ideas and snipped anything that we might throw out in the bud.I've already said though, it's been a bumpy ride.>>26631443Do they come on foot, in a knightmare, in a car.I'm willing to meet with them to speak unless C.C. clearly thinks that it'd be a bad idea.The real question is..

>>26631443Through the Door, dammit!>>26631501I've been telling you that you move too fast. Then again, the thread dies if most people need to wait more than twenty minutes for an update - nobody ever wants to discuss things and we get button-pushers who interrupt any attempt at thinking.>>26631576There is chaotic behavior, apparently chaotic behavior, and panicked behavior.

>>26631691Both, actually. But that's just my 2 cents,. We could use more downtime to actually enjoy our success and plan accordingly for the next mission. Our legs aren't even properly fixed. I'd have put this off until we had a bit more readiness. And we found some way to get Shirley out of the picture so Lelouch could be fucking Lelouch because at this point we've stolen his spotlight. Seriously, he's been a useless sack of shit hasn't he? We've cleaned up after his screwups more than once.
>>26631768Since when were you under the impression that using you wasn't his plan all along?He never had a catastrophic failure like the original Saitama Ghetto to spur his tactical development
>>26631765Just what I was thinking>>26631867So, you're saying that we've hamstrung Lelouch's ability to think in a tactical manner?
>>26631867Ah.>>26631901So. In other words... We should just become Zero. Like. Officially.We really should just find a way to kill lelouch and take his mantle.. Making the excuse that Nemo was right about Daft Punk After All.
>>26631937Sorry, we don't need to kill him. Just get Charles to erase his brain. Far less messy. Though it leaves loose ends..
>>26631867...oh god.Guys. Guys we Tamaki'd Lelouche.
>>26631901>>26631964>>26631961>>26631937>hfw we announce that we're no longer helping him because he's become too reliant on us"In FACT, Lulu, I'll be joining your hated father's side to give you a proper challenge and make sure you can exceed your potential far more than even in the Scenario"
>>26631989>That face.Makes me want to rewatch some of Code Ment..
>>26631989When in reality, we're actually setting ourselves up as a double-agent and playing to everyone's false(r) assumptions of our character as a gloryhound and the best part is that we'd really be the only ones who know about it.Speaking of which, really need to kill VV and take his code, run off to Charle's Palace with CC in tow, breaking Kallen's heart, and setting up a nice scenario for the epilogue or second arc of the quest to work out
>>26631989>joining Charles in his totally original plan that is totally not InstrumentalitySeriously, when and if we find out about that plan, we need to mock the HELL out of him for it.
>>26632072God, this plan is almost as bad as what fans thought of Del toro's giant robot/kaiju mechamashup back in '013
>>26631937Nemo isn't smart enough, not to mention that the reason Lelouche managed to do as well as he did was because he could assure things WOULD go his way with his Geass. Ours... is far less useful for that. Sure we know how things will go, but if we have a hand in them at all our vision is useless.Zero was a symbol as much as a mastermind. We could be the mastermind, but not so much the symbol.>>26631989We can't do that to Kallen. We -could- just not participate in other battles though, feeding Zero Geass info. Since it's hard to snap out of it now, it's fair to tell him "No, not using it, be your own genius."
>>26632097That's really not funny, anon. Like, that's anti-funny. It's not a clever mockery, it just seems like you wanted an excuse to say "I don't like Pacific Rim."An appropriate mockery would be just calling him Gendo constantly.
So the plan seems to be make a daft punk trap and hide behind a rock with the shotgunI need two things of youa 1d100and the song you play
>>26632127Nemo has Lelouch's greatest battles to work off of, he's cousins with Project Camelot and he's in.. relatively good graces with Rakshata. We also displayed some military tactics and control in battles excluding the wonder twins. And we could easily work out the outcome of a battle by distributing a faux plan and editing it by peering multiple key members of it.Hell, we could out Keikaku, Lelouch by never being surprised by anything.. Hell, we could spring traps at our leisure.We could be the ultimate mastermind, having a full battle-plan before the battle even takes place.
Rolled 72>>26632174I didn't like pacific rim, but not for those reasons, I don't like most movies these days, so maybe I'm just getting old or something>>26632179http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAjR4_CbPpQ

Rolled 42>>26632179Harder Better Faster
Rolled 32, 4, 7, 30, 16 = 89Writing now
>>26632251>>26632179alternatively, a combohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5__Ogi4Tek
>>26632291Well, unless it was a battle that we clearly could not plan for.. Say, a surprise attack.. We could just timeskip through them, saying that we auto-win every battle that we take part of... Because really, if we destroy any bit of surprise the enemy could throw at us, we should win each and every single time.Granted, we can only exist in one location at a time.. and we can't control battles across a nation in that respect... We'd need vice-commanders. Like Tamaki. >>26632251You're not alone, most movies out of hollywood these days are shit. Shitty plot, some kind of gimmick, much like our quest threads, except they entertain us for less time and cost more money.I watch more foreign and indie films.. Honestly, the last film that moved me emotionally was "Castaway On The Moon" a Korean Film.. And the last one that I actually thoroughly loved the action of? Goemon... Fucking Psychadelic live-action ninja stuff..I wonder when we'll hit the lowest point in films and get good ones again..
>>26632404Have you seen Pacific Rim? The plot and acting is meh but the action is GREAT.
>>26632441A man cannot survive upon bread alone.
>>26632441Only idiots can enjoy media that relies only on action.
>>26632479True, but boat-swords help fill the gap.
>>26632500No, that's action, brah.
>>26632441The action IS great.. Though I was disappointed with how little there was. Half the screen time was the asian chick not being allowed to pilot for some retarded reason of her dayddy protecting her and whatever emotional baggage she carried for the Kaiju. It ate into the giant robot time.That said, It was just all action.. Like every other hollywood movie. Not saying that I didn't get a raging giant robot boner from the whole thing... But As I said before, that's all the movies really are nowadays..Another good movie.. I think the title was Sunset unlimited.. or something.. Or was it Sunrise?Fucking amazing movie about an hour to an hour and a half long.The entire thing is shot within One fucking room. One fucking set. And the dialogue.. the two characters.. It's brilliant and engaging...But We're not here to discuss movies, we're here to discuss Daft Punk and conquer the world, right? I still remember that was the stated objective from thread one. I will say that I don't give a shit about Lelouch. We need to conquer the world.
>>26632500Baseball bat. That oil tanker was a fucking baseball bat. Break out the rye bread and mustard, grandma.
>>26632542We don't need the world anymore, we've got a girlfriend and giant robots.>>26632543You're from Seattle, aren't you?
>>26632542The Sunset Limited was the movie.Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson are the only two characters as Mr. Black and Mr. White
>crit failhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5__Ogi4Tek"I'm on this C.C. get to cover," you say as you pull off your mask and leave it blasting music. Armed with your combat shotgun and the sakuradite detonator insurance, you open the cockpit. You rub your sore head and ignore the concussion before bolting over to a small boulder to hide behind. C.C. hides behind the knightmare, avoiding the gaze of the soldier. After the laborious footsteps thump past you, you peek around the edge of the rock and see General Bartley, staring in awe at the mess you made.You smile, nod, rack your first shell in, and rise to confront him firearm first.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Bartley falls to his knees in despair, seeing the knightmare destroyed, but quickly finds his senses and begins sending a text out to someone. "Lord Schneizel will exile me for this. I will never be forgiven for abandoning his knightmare."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"You're the anomalous man Lord Schneizel is looking for, aren't you?" Christ he has a fat face. The pores really fucking stand out like this, what with the gunmetal contrast.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"You're out here, aren't you C.C.? Come out and we can make a deal."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~shit. You clutch your hand to your face to block the damaged bandages and stare at the fat officer. He has one hand holding the shotgun away, and the other in your face.Say something"Flash, Bang."Other tacticool (explain)CapitulateOther
>>26632543Oh come on. Did you not see the poses they were doing? They were using that shit as a bokken. Which is a (wooden practice) sword. It's also a great visual echo of the fight scene they used to establish their drift compatibility and how in-synch they were.
>>26632595Let go of the shotgun, feigning a surrender.Then shoot him with the 9mm in his fat fucking face.
>>26632595"Only men who are prepared to be shot, can shoot other people."You don't seem like a man who has personally killed anyone in his life, have you by any chance?"Desperately signal CC to shoot the fucker.
>>26632595>Flashbang grenade, cocky smart alec responseAnd we close our good eye before doing it>>26632653Objection: we are not capable of drawing, cocking, aiming, and firing a weapon at this range
>>26632584Yes. Yes I am.>>26632702>cocking a semiautomatic handgunDouble-action, bro.
>>26632724do you keep the chamber loaded and the safety off while it's riding in your waistline?
>>26632724according to my handgun experience, that does not apply to the first shot, you do need to cock the hammer back
>>26632749*rack the slide
>>26632762racking the slide cocks the hammer and is only necessary if there isn't a bullet already in the chamber. If there is a bullet, you only need to cock the hammershotguns are more my forte though. I'm pretty shit with handguns
>>26632814So, not in his face, just the leg, and then the stomach.. and then the face. Seriously, we need to turn our geass off by killing this man. As we walk the path of Mao.. My only real friend.
>no one caring that CA gave a critfail when no one rolled one
>>26632814Right, but not many people realize that a round isn't in the chamber until you rack the slide on a new magazine, or if you've counted your shots and reload while one is still in the chamberand carrying with a hot weapon and safety off is just asking for trouble at the worst moment>>26632852Code Arthur rolled a critfail, more of those rules we don't know yet
>>26632886>>26632877so are you just like waiting for him to explain the rule rather than trying to figure it out and work around it?
>>26632749>that does not apply to the first shot, you do need to cock the hammer backOnly if the gun is single-action. Anything double-action cocks the hammer as you pull the trigger.
Rolled 65, 26, 31, 30, 24 = 176So, the tallied votes are split between shooting him, having C.C. shoot him, and flash banging himbut the unofficial votes are rather heavily in favor of shooting him1d100 please
>>26632901I don't know what to do anymore.>>26632912that's a revolver or single-shot, anything that uses a magazine requires that your rack the slide to load a round into the chamber, recoil and gas-block mechanisms on such weapons do the racking of the next round during recoil/reset phases of firingthe trigger/hammer action on a double-action revolver will do all that anyways because there is no slide or recoil mechanism to work
Rolled 60>>26632940Now you're considering unofficial votes too?
>>26632950Racking the slide is not cocking the weapon, it's chambering a round. I figured we'd probably HAVE a round hot considering we're expecting to get into a gunfight. And many modern semi-autos are "double-action only", where the hammer never locks into the cocked position, giving the long heavy trigger pull every time. And others have a "decocker" safety, which lowers the hammer back down when you engage the safety, so when you take the safety off, the first shot is double-action.
And then we were /k/>>26632968only the roll is locked in because of that. You can still change your method. Since he has the gun in your face, and you have a bomb on your chest, and all over your body
>>26633004NEW VOTE: Threaten the bastard with explosive demise; show him OUR BUTTON Two, for the love of god, we aren't pressing this one

>no crit"So, Bartley. Nice to meet you," you say as you release your shotgun and hold up your hand."Nick Asplund. I didn't actually believe you'd come here of your own will. When I heard that our operatives were both killed when they were sent to capture you, that they even lost the precious Gawain fighting against you terrorists, I couldn't believe it. But Lord Schneizel was right. Did you come alone? How did you get here?""Frank was kind enough to leave his boat behind you see. And do you really think he can threaten me with that when I have bombs covering my body? You know this thing is rigged to blow, right?""I am a trained soldier, and you are just a civilian who has thrown in with terrorists. Your threats do not frighten me." You can feel the pistol digging into your waist. There should be nothing for it to snag on, one clean movement."I'm afraid it is as he says Bartley. You have brought a knife to a bomb fight as it were," C.C. says as she strolls into the open.Bartley's jaw drops as he turns to her. "C.C.? So you are with the terrorists. But now that you are here, does that mean you intend to join with V.V.?"C.C. smiles. "Maybe you should have thought twice before challenging an anomoly like Nemo.""What do you mean?" The pull is perfect. Smooth rack. Easy aim. His gun already drifted off target. You manage to keep your eye sealed. You grin and put a bullet through his fat face. Bartley falls."Why do you smile when you do that Nemo?"Say somethingSilently head into the caveretrieve maskOther
>>26633332It brings me pleasure, like you.
>>26633332"Mao, I think of Mao every time," frown, "and then I think of Frank." smile and laugh"Let's go," grab mask, go into cave
>>26633332"It's just like my Chinese cartoons."Then scan the area for anyone who might be lagging behind Bartley and could use us going to retrieve the mask as a trap of their own.
>>26633332>no crit>>26633037Isn't crit 85-100? Or were you not calling for us to roll there?>[x]Retrieve Mask>[x]Say somethingIt needs to be some sort of Daft Punk quote but I can't think of anything appropriate.
>>26633420see >>26632940the other rolls were just for tie-breaking
>>26633332>[x]Other"These Order bastards are my very favorite people to kill. They are so beautifully amazed when they die."
>>26633417>>26633466>>26633332A little bit of this, a little bit of that."I'm not a very nice person, CC, I was allowed to watch the Black Knights suffer and die for months, people be abused by both strangers and those they trusted and loved. I'm not very nice and I hate- HATE, those who are evil on purpose... You'll put me down if and when I become like Mao- or any other failures you've no doubt had to get rid of when the time comes."
>>26633448pretty certain your interpretation is wrongSimple question now, if you went in the cave and found no one, you'd just enter the thought elevator, right?
>>26633548>>26633466>>26633418>>26633417Jesus, since when did we go from pressing every damn button we could find to being a gritty badass wannabe?
>>26633569we should just say "Cus I love it when a plan comes together." or some other quote
>>26633563What's a thought elevator? We'll have to be careful and investigate/ask CC questions first, I'd think.
>>26633569I'm telling you, we need to bring this back to Daft Punk somehow.
>>26633569>not recognizing itIt's a quote from Ladd Russo.Nick is a giant fucking otaku.It seems in-character for him to bust that quote out, as an "I always wanted to say that" thing.
>>26633589>>26633466>>26633569>>26633332VOTING FOR ...that one anime I saw once, I love Ladd
>>26633630BACCANO, THAT'S IT
Not relevant right now but..Nick could play the fuck out of stocks with a co-conspirator.Tell them to buy the shit out of a stock, and then oracle them to see exactly when is the best time to sell them again.Best used when the market's a rapid flux.We could use the ridiculous amount of money to fund the black knights.. Or you know, fuck off and join Brittania properly since Lelouch is an idiot and we want to be emperor..Oh.. Oh wait.. We could also aim to create a megacorp that undermines the actual empire of Brittania.. I like that too.. Lloyd would fucking love all the knightmare funding too.
>>26633725Would this, hypothetically, allow us to pull of The Nanosecond Buyout?
>>26633746have the conspirator announce the date and time of the stock-dump so we see it in the vision(s)but, again, that takes time we won't have because all of this plotting takes longer than it will for Britannia to pull off [PLOT NICK IS NOT YET AWARE OF]
>>26633778Lottery and stock dumps would be good cheap and easy ways to abuse our Oracle Geass..Have a competent commander to puppet would also work in our favor if we're looking at the war-time applications. I honestly never really wanted us to be on the forefront with our geass forcing us into a trance. I was the guy that kept saying that we should just watch the battle from home with lelouch on the phone to feed him information. That was before we knew we couldn't gather info from digital media.. Then again we had people there to use our Geass on and that would work by matter of proxxy. We really need to nope the fuck off of being on direct battlefields and make more intelligent and abusive plays on our Geass.
>>26633778Although, if we geass for long enough we could theoretically see the whole thing to completion and- OH FUCK, WE NEED TO GEASS CC BEFORE WE GO INTO THE THOUGHT ELEVATOR"C.C. I need you to go in alone.""Why is that, Nick?""Because if you aren't ready to do just that, my Geass won't work as well.">GEASS DON'T WORK ON IMMORTALS, BITCH, POTATO
"These Order bastards are my very favorite people to kill. They are so beautifully amazed when they die!" you exclaim as you kick Bartley's corpse. Your straight face eventually breaks, much to C.C.'s relief. "You have no fucking idea how badly I've wanted to use that line. And I finally did! Oh, it feels great.""So do you have an honest answer for me?""What? You want me to sound like some grizzled hardass?" you ask as you stroll back to the ejection pod cockpit to reclaim your mask. "You act like I think faster than I act. I just kind of do, you know? Don't we have occult monstrosities to fight? What is dead may never die and all that jazz?""You might be the only monster here Nick."Inside the cave, ancient architecture is lit up by great flood lights for an excavation, and in the center of it all is the door. The symbol of geass is engraved across it, overseeing all who would approach it, and you can feel a pull on your very being, tugging you forward.You glance around, searching for enemies, but you are alone. No Schneizel, no guards, no back up ninjas, no geass users, no V.V.. Just you and C.C. as you walk up to the door. "Are you prepared?" she asks.You double check your armaments, and nod. She holds out her hand and puts her other hand on the door. The symbology begins to glow with strange energy, resonating with the code on her forehead. The door is open. She waits for you to step forward.
Code.. Could our Geass be.. "Live Vicariously?"It would make sense for a NEET Otaku that rides on the stories of vidya characters, animes, and mangas... You've said before that we essentially get an over the shoulder view of their future... and your hints as to what it really is have maintained being rather.. terribly vague..
and that's a wrap for tonight. Too tired, that 24 hour run actually did fix my clock.Hope you enjoyed it, next thread can be tomorrow or friday nightarchiving now as you all decide which would be better

>>26633990Here's to Nick slowly losing his sanity, succumbing to PTSD and wanting to make the visions stop by killing everyone!
>>26634057>Radio Man.God he was cool. I was fuckin' pissed when Lugo shot him. And then Lugo went and got lynched. I'm not proud of it, but I'll admit I murdered the entire fucking crowd with his Tavor (it's hidden on the level, just before you reach him) on my first playthrough."Where's all the violence coming from? Is it the anime? I bet it's the anime."
>hindsight is 20/20C.C. should have said "You might be the only one who isn't human here, Nick"
