Peter Parker Quest, Issue #11>Spider-man, Hero or Menace?Rules: http://pastebin.com/w5G3aG3YCharacter sheet: http://pastebin.com/q1AqTT5hMy twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOpArchives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Peter%20Parker%20QuestThings have been… weird lately. You’re a newspaper-worthy, it seems. Kinda. Well, your alter ego ‘Spider-man is.’ He’s been the talk of the town ever since the failure of the Black cat’s heist.It’s been >[ ]A few Days>[ ]a few weeks>[ ]Three months>ALSO, you have a question for completing the last arc. You may use it to ask me anything. It doesn’t even have to be about the plot, (in fact I recommend that it isn‘t!), but rather ‘do X or Y’ exist in this universe or since you’ve mentioned Y, which version is the biggest inspiration or did you go all original?, other small details. If it’s a good enough question and it makes sense to be, it might even become in universe knowledge for Peter!
>>27011079>[ ]A few DaysQuestion: Was Black Cat telling the truth because that isn't something a person who did their first kiss would do? Then again it's black cat
>>27011079>[x] three months Months in which we have been busy not quite being a vigilante...but being a concerned citizen with super powers.I ask you, Cosgrove, do Mutants (full on active X Gene) exist?
>>27011079>>[ ]A few DaysDoes SHIELD exist?
>>27011079>[X]Three months Mostly to move along the marvel timeline and get Iron Man and othersMy question is this: Have they recovered Captain America from the ice and thawed him yet? Which Cap incarnation do you plan on drawing the most from for inspiration?
>>27011079>>[ ]A few Days
>>27011079>>[X]a few weeksDo Mutants exist?
>>27011079>[ ]a few weeksBecause time is not on our side, we should be more proactive rather than reactive.
>>27011079>Q: Is SpOck a possibility in this world? Not as he currently is; but rather a separate entity?Also:>A few weeks
>>27011079How easily is Harry influenced by his father?
>>27011079>[X]a few weeksand this question >>27011151 , it's something we really need to know.
>>27011297As for the question: do the more supernatural marvel elements exist here? Like the Sorcerer Supreme, Ghost Rider?>>27011320I... ah......Yes.
>>27011079>a few daysAlso I'd like to know what role mutants will play in this quest.
Didn't he answer the mutant thing a few threads back stating that they're here; just not public (yet).
>>27011405You have an idea of which thread in particular he said that, or should I just hit up all of them?
>>27011423There's only 10 others; just ctrl+f "Mutant" and you should find it.>>27011422Pretty sure...
Has the totemic madness already begun, or will it be something we'd have to actually seek out?
Secret Wars Y/N?
>>27011079>It doesn’t even have to be about the plot, (in fact I recommend that it isn‘t!), but rather ‘do X or Y’ exist in this universe or since you’ve mentioned Y, which version is the biggest inspiration or did you go all original?, other small details.Why does Latveria, an Eastern European country, have a monarchy?
>>27011423Probably the wise thing to do.So. Brick house Spider Gwen?
>>27011447>>27011491Yeah, I figured it was a silly question to ask if I was just going to do it anyway. But Cosgrove has never answered that question. Just us talking about the dumbness of Marvel's "mutant hate," thing.
>>27011079I gotta question! Is the symbiote going to be available to us? And is it going to be the original 'awesome as fuck until Peter fucked things up' symbiote, or the movie 'yer an asshole now, Pete!' symbiote? >>27011320This pleases me.
Rolled 8 + 1Previously, on Peter Parker Quest!
>>27011447Just checked, didn't see anything from Cos.
>>27011079Did the Spider-Man Super Sentai TV show exist in this universe before we did? and is Gwen a fan?
>>27011541Then we must inquire about the Mutants!
>>27011532That wasn't just the movie. I owned an Spiderman comic dealing with the Symbiote, and it made Peter into a giant dick in that particular continuity.
>>27011541>>27011528Could have sworn.Oh well; sorry guys.>>27011079If the Punisher shows up; csn it be a Magic Girl?
>>27011079>[X]A few Days
>>27011079A few DaysIs the Black Cat Fenix
>[X]A few DaysAlso, did our stats changed or any special rules? they don't seems different? I hope we got Spider Sense 2 man. The more, the better.
>>27011595Nah he will tickle us to deathAnyone who gets this is awesome
As discussed in Avengers Academy a while ago, if Peter had founded a shell corporation, he could have had his weestler/superhero career while maintaining relative anonymity...doubly so now that things like the Internet exist. So I say to you guys...want to become re official spider merch licenser if the Tokersu property does not exist?
>>27011079>a few daysQuestion: what X-men roughly around our age are you currently planing to put at the academy? (yes, I am hoping for team up events...)>it's running early! Yay!
>>27011663I got it manga verse
>>27011079>[x]A few DaysDoes Bruce Banner exist and did he experiment with the Gamma Bomb yet?Also, are there any other heroes at the moment besides us?
>>27011658We picked up Spider Sense 2, Engineer 2, Stealthy and Webslinger. But none of our statistics (SATIWF) actually changed.
>So seems like votes are for>a few daysand>The existence of mutants/the X-gene
>>27011663>Mangaverse>AwesomePick one and only one
>>27011747I'd rather have boosted our stats instead of getting "Stealth" but I'm glad we got Spider-Sense upgraded.Now I say we go to Atlantic City and make a fortune playing poker with precognition.
>>27011755Yes/probablyHow broad/specific are you taking the question?
>>27011804We don't have precognition. We can now tell where threats are coming from.
>>27011799I never said it was awesomeI thought it was hilarious myself
>>27011755Ya I guess.Personally I could care less about mutie scum, but that's what the people want.>>27011804That's not how that works. Not yet at least.
>>27011755Yeah, seems about right
>>27011804Our Spider-Sense isn't that high yet. We can only detect danger and where it's coming from.We need like 7+ more levels to reach precog.
>>27011824If you read mangaverse you can not or ever be awesome.It steals that property from your soul. It is the price for gazing upon something so banal and wretched while maintaining your sanity.
>>27011862grow uptheres been much worse thingsits not even fucking canon in any way
>>27011862That's something long since forsaken. Didn't you read the rules? Nobody under 18, don't post CP while the mods are awake, and so on.
>>27011821Spider Sense doesn't JUST warn us about physical threats. The Avengers wouldn't invite him to the poker games as long as he had the sense because they considered it cheating.
>>27011570We really need to built this. This Robot one shots everything due to the power of low budget.
>>27011862...as a nerd of many fandom a and widely read in the art of comics...I ask you as a peer to calmly chill thyself. People will have different opinions and find either direct or abstract ways to find a way to enjoy something you may not like. It makes neither they or you wrong. Just remember that /co/ is love, and on /tg/ we be excellent to one another.I myself found it funny that Anthony Stark's head in a jar had a professional assistant whose only function seemed to be turning him toward those he wises to speak too.
>>27011926Said it before, saying again.Junkyard arc reactor spider bot
>>27011949I like the idea that the other heroes really don't like Spider-Man all that much.Not that they actually hate him, it's just they're not a fan.
>>27011972now i want a megas edit with spiderman coloring
>>27011994Being Spiderman is suffering. Pain and Suffering, filled with regrets.
>>27011994They just want him to shut up for two minutes straight.
>The X-gene?>There could be said that there is a sub school of individuals with a variable mutagenic gene which has been categorized with the ‘X’ Variable, yes. However, there has been no proof of its existence barring a few ‘mad ramblings’ about the possibilities in the sixties which were dropped as ‘unfounded’ and many of the people who supported its existence have since recanted of it, Professor Charles Xavier being the foremost as he has since isolated himself to a philanthropic lifestyle and has been quoted with saying >“The sixties were a different time. We were all young and riding high off the stories of Captain America. But there’s no such thing as a gene that makes you superhuman. it’s a fantasy just as big as Captain America having been anything other than propaganda for the Allies. Now, were you here actually interview me or were you here just to waste my time?”Furthermore, the spokesperson of the Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division merely raised an eyebrow when asked and responded, "I personally have no comment on the subject nor does my department but, off the record, I fidn it hard to beleive that there is such a thing as a 'gene that gives people superpowers' if there was, don't you think it'd be in the news?
>>27012033>implying anything that is important or actually interesting is ever on the news
>>27012011See that's why no one likes him.Because of stuff like that.
>>27012033It's like I'm back working for the pentagon again!
>>27012033....why does this make me think HUUUUUGE cover up?
>>27012080Because the UN hides shit from EVERYONE even themselves
>>27012033>I find it hard to believe that there is such a thing as a 'gene that gives people superpowers' if there was, don't you think it'd be in the news?>Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics DivisionSomehow, I don't think it would be.
>>27012080Sounds legit to me bub.
>>27012080You really think the government would do that? Just... go on TV and tell lies?
>>27012033>it’s a fantasy just as big as Captain America having been anything other than propaganda for the AlliesI am intrigued.So people don't think Captain America existed, and they don't remember Namor or the first Human Torch (who ironically was not human, but an android. ...Never understood that) at all, even as propaganda.I'm intrigued.I just hope you're not doing the Ultimates Style "Three guys created the X-gene, also pretty much everything else."
>>27012144Whoops, accidentally said I'm intrigued twice.When in fact I am only an average amount of intrigued, as oppose to double.
>>27012033Jesus, I feel like I'm back in D.C....
>>27012033So I take it a crazy man with magnet powers never hijacked a bunch of missiles speaking bullshit about prosecution that hadn't even happened yet, but had thanks to his crazy?I mean... goddamnit Erik.
>>27012162>>27012070Blackhawks go home and stop digging up the tinfoil and canned beans I don't have buried in my back yard.
>>27012224Maybe you just have raccoons who have figured out how to use a canopener.
>>27012241Since when do raccons DONT know how to use a can opener?
>>27012241Sounds like lizard person talk to me... which is fine my fellow reptilian friend.
>>27012276True. They're pretty advanced.
>[ ]A few DaysYou’ve mostly been laying low and living as normally as possible. You’ve gone to school and stuck around your house. You received a call from Felix’s father on your next tutoring session to inform you that Felix was currently having health problems and that he would unfortunately be unable to host any tutoring sessions, but that Felix would call you as soon as he was well again.At least you spent yesterday hanging out with Harry. That’s been the one upside, considering that Gwen has not looked at you or spoken to you or answered your calls… at all, really. You let out a sigh an resume reading your textbook on mechanical engineering.And then there’s the matter of the money from the reward. Two grand. You should get some of it to Uncle Ben or Aunt May, but how? How do you just give people large amounts of money without them asking questions about how you got it?You snap the book shut and toss it onto your desk.>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume>[ ]See what Aunt May is up to>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doing>[ ]Try to call Gwen….again>[ ]Go for a walk>[ ]Write in
>>27012349>>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume>[ ]Try to call Gwen….again
>>27012349Call Gwen.And then go buy some materials... I'm thinking of things for an alternate costume that we could wear of we ever catch some heat.. We may very well need it..
>>27012349>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doing>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume
>>27012349>[ ]Try to call Gwen….again>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume
>>27012349>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doingwhile>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume
>>27012349>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costumeWe don't have to give ALL the $2k to May and Ben. We could use some stuff, including a prepaid cell phone.>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doingWe can do this on the bus. Congratulate him on his photo in the Bugle.
>>27012349>[x]Try to call Gwen….againIf she doesn't answer, then >[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doing
>>27012349>See what Aunt May is up to>Call Eddie, see what's up>Call Gwen (she's clearly mad that Black Cat got away from us)>Then go for a walkWe need to save the money and figure out how to give it to May and Ben. Maybe in small installments?
>>27012349>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doingBro, I need advice,I kinda told Gwen that I liked her.
>>27012349Has Uncle Ben and Aunt May still been absent frequently?Because if so, would it be possible to do some snooping and see just how bad the various bills are?
>>27012420I don't think that was the problem.
>>27012349So just how bad was that newspaper report?Like does everyone think we were in cahoots with the Black Cat?Did someone photograph us kissing?
>>27012349We should get some karate lessons look up some schools on the internet we got all this money it could be fun!
>>27012411Wait that's a perfect idea.Let's buy a prepaid cell phone, and -then- call Gwen.There is no potential downside to this plan.
>>27012481Did eddie write the accompanying article?Did he like it?
>>27012349>money transfer thingWe used to have a car fund that we've since spent. Assuming it was less than two grand, match that amount, sit our uncle down and have "the money talk." We don't really need a car, sure it be nice, but we can always get around with public transportation. And we know we've been a burden, maybe a happy one, one the love, but a burden nonetheless. Tell uncle Ben that we're asking to be able to help the most important people in our life. He'll understand.
>>27012499I here this Danny guy down in Brooklyn knows his stuff.
maybe that dude that's harassing her via cellphone is the reason she doesn't pick up
>>27012444I mean will two thousand dollars even make a dent in what they owe?We should probably see what the deal is with that, before we worry about a costume we don't really have much reason to wear again anytime soon.
You know, we don't even need to talk to Uncle Ben and Aunt May about the money. We live in their house. We grab one of their deposit slips, go down to the bank, put it directly into their account. They'll have no idea where this money came from.
>>27012526She's been ignoring us at school as well.I'm not sure why she'd be so intimidated if she has superpowers.Maybe she's being blackmailed or something?
>>27012530This.We did our time and got our cash. No need to run around in footie pajamas again.
>>27012349Try to Call Gwen...againand convince her to come with you to buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume
>>27012349>go buy materials to build Gwen a set of web shooters.We probably are going to need her for a fitting, but we can start making a useful present without her.
>>27012542then, being the good folks that they are, will assume its a bank error and inform the bank of it. They'll clarify it was us and we up shit creek
>>27012542Eh, they'll probably suspect us, and I'm not sure how good at lying we are.
Here some Kamen Rider Spiderman Pics I found on Google.
Here some more
>>27012556Maybe she knows about our little meeting with the Black Cat!Or she's pissed at us because her dad got I trouble for the Black Cat escaping thirty seconds after we left. We probably can't apologize our way out of this one.
>>27012379>>27012392>>27012398>>27012399>>27012411>>27012420>>27012567Do we really have any good reason to have our costume be a priority?I mean we haven't made any headway on taking down Osborn, and who cars how good we look in that case?
This....Eh. It something.
>>27012575We do it through the ATM. They'll have the record that it was a deposit and that it was using their PIN, but by the time they get their statement the video from the ATM would have rolled over.
>>27012615I assume its for functionality over style
>>27012609We made sure Black Cat was handcuffed before leaving.I'm not sure we could have stopped her unless we punched her unconscious, or covered her in our white sticky goo.Both options made us uncomfortable.
>>27012593I don't hate it.
>>27012615now how we look, what materials we can use to make the suit more capable of protecting us in combat situations and enhancing performance
>>27012630They'll still think it's us first, and we haven't gotten good at keeping secrets yet, have we?
>>27012609Fuck, we haven't explained that the escape wasn't our fault. What did JJJ write about that mess?
>>27012642Yeah but again, this is still Peter Parker quest, we don't really have any incentive to be Spider-Man again for the foreseeable future, unless we want to hang with Black Cat.
>>27012615Gwen likes making costumes and has been ignoring us. This is a good way to get to talk to her and see whats really up
>>27012630What's the problem with sitting them down and having a mature conversation about the state of our family's finances? Peter's mature (-ish) for his age, I don't see the problem.
>>27012650Well he wrote "Hero or Menace" and not "Threat or Menace" so at least some people acknowledge that we probably aren't the Black Cat's accomplice.
>>27012677She hasn't really said anything at all though, I'm not sure if costumes specifically will make a dent.
>>27012677>>27012567>>27012556>>27012501>>27012413>>27012398>>27012386>>27012379Give her some space, guys. She knows we want to talk to her and she has our number.
>>27012686or we could just come clean about the whole thing....just throwing it out there
>>27012712Honesty? From Peter Parker? That'll be the day!
>>27012706I suppose it's worth a shot.
>and the top three answers aaaaaaare->[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doing>[ ]Try to call Gwen….again>Writing!
>>27012677Still think she's mostly pissed that we sort of let the black cat get away. And she has that stalker.Hey, could we rig up some kind of cheap security camera to catch the guy slipping hate mail in her locker? Might be good to have evidence of the crime in our back pocket.
So I had an idea for Gwen's Spider hero name. Commuter even thought it was a good idea. Wiki Nephila. It means fond of spinning in Ancient Greek and is the name of a genus of spider, many members of which can spin golden webs. The females are also bigger than the males. This fits us wanting Gwen to go strength route and it would be a nice difference for her to have golden webbing, I am sure we could some how get the formula dyed golden. Also, the Japanese have a youki modeled after these types of spiders that turns into a hot babe.So, what do you guys think?
>>27012609Ok, that ACTUALLY wasn't out fault.If the NYPD can't keep a handcuffed high-profile suspect in custody for 30 fucking seconds, that is hardly our problem. If we were a legit superhero sworn to fight crime then it would have been our problem, but right then we weren't. We were just a highschool student in a mask out to make a quick buck to help his elderly relatives pay the bills.As for the Black Cat encounter afterwards... well, she just sorta came at us, ya know? How were we supposed to know our normal levels of snark would set her off like that?
>>27012724Are you saying Wiki Nephila or just Nephila? Nephila doesn't sound too terrible
>>27012724Hmm, like the golden thread for Gwen idea. Not sure on the name yet (if we're going with Greek, the obvious choice just sounds better to me), but let me kick the tires on it for a bit.
>>27012769Yeah it does.
>>27012734This so hardRegardless of your personal opinion on Spiderman, we're not him. We're nowhere near the level of angst or power he's at, and if someone can break away from multiple NYPD officers while handcuffed, we're not entirely sure we want to take them on.More to the point, we have no reason to take them on. Vigilantism is illegal.
>>27012769I meant go to Wikipedia and look up Nephila. I will admit the name isn't that great but I came upon it because I was looking at a superhero name generator and had it doing arachnid names along with colors. It came out with Ruby Web and then I went looking to see if there were spiders that had webs that were colors other than white. Apparently there are. The name is at least better than Charlotte though.
>>27012814Personally I'm fond of Arachnia.
>>27012724Nah... it seems too esoteric. I'm all for calling her Scarlet Spider, or maybe we could call her Weaver, as in the Orb Weaver Spider... Just a couple of suggestions.
>>27012854I'm all for Scarlet Spider too... it'll fit for when we get her the Red Symbiote..I wonder who our Toxin will be..
>>27012854>>27012837>>27012814How about just Goldie?Anyway lets cross that bridge when and if we get to it. She's not talking to us, let alone thinking about playing dressup herself.
>>27012837I was just throwing the name out there, but I do like the gold webbing to differentiate her from Spider-Man. The Golden Silk Orb Weaver colors vary from reddish to greenish yellow in color with distinctive whiteness on the cephalothorax and the beginning of the abdomen, to take from wikipedia. That kind of color scheme could also serve to differentiate her too.
>>27012854No damn you, scarlet spider is reserved for clone bros only!!!!!
>>27012912I like "Spider-Girl" from an aesthetic standpoint, but with "Spider-Man" out there, there's no way it wouldn't sound condescending.
>>27012877Eddie Brock? Harry Osborn?If we're planning on keeping and befriending the symbiote, having it spawn a not-fucking-crazy Carnage symbiote, and it spawning a symbiote of its own, I'm all for keeping the symbiotes exclusive to our circle of friends.So yeah, let's have Toxin, if and when it is ever created, go to Eddie or Harry; presuming they don't end up villains thanks to our slight metagaming.
>>27012939Well, we could always change our name to "Spider-Guy"
>>27012979I'd say "Spider-Bro", but I assumed that would be taken by Eddie Brock.
>>27012912We could actually break canon and not spread the name spiderman...How about Cobalt Spider?
>>27013007Or one to our inevitable clones.
>>27013024Too late, we're in the paper. It's done.
>>27013024I don't think J^3 will let us get away with a name change if we don't change the costume after faking "Spider-Man's" death.
>>27012854Weaver sounds good. It's a reference to her hobby of making costumes, it's spider-related without it seeming too obvious, and when I think of a Orb Weaver-inspired costume, I think of Spinnerette, and while the story's... not THAT good, the character designs are interesting at least.
>>27013094I agree with your assessment of the character designs...Heh, Gravity
>>27012969beeb beeb all aboard the the symbiote express
>[ ]Go buy materials to improve your Spider-man costume>[ ]Call Eddie Brock, see how he’s doing>[ ]Try to call Gwen….againYou pick up the nearby newspaper, a reprinting since it sold so well on its first run, or the Daily Bugle article on Spider-man. There, on the front page, is Spider-man saluting the photographer. From here you can see how amateurish it is, honestly. The article is by Eddie Brock and its surprisingly supportive. They offer words like ‘suspicious’ sure but there’s also a nice little bit that offers support of you for having caught the Black Cat… as it blasts the police for being so incompetent as to let her get away.Nothing on you and the Black Cat’s…. meeting, so guess Jameson and Eddie might have a more favorable opinion of you. For the moment, at least. Still, that probably doesn’t help things between you and Gwen any. You set down the newspaper and pick up the phone, calling her number. It rings twice before it goes to voice mail. …Yup, still not talking. You hang up and, looking at the paper, decide to call Eddie. There three rigns before the phone picks up. “Hello, Eddie Brock speaking, who is this?” His voice is a bit tense and impatient.“It’s Peter, Eddie.”
>>27013198Any tenseness on the line fades as he lets out a sigh of relief. “Ah, good to hear from you, Pete. Though can it wait? I’m in the middle of an investigation and I need to be focused. Are you busy tomorrow night? I can call you and talk to you then, buddy. Later!”There’s someone else’s voice on the other end as Eddie hangs up. You rest your head against the desk you’re sitting at before letting out a sigh as you open up your wallet and take a card out from the back and look at it. It’s the card the Black Cat gave you. You shouldn’t trust her, not even once, but… She’s still your best help for sneaking into Oscorp. Well, if she actually will help you. But there’s no way in hell you’re calling that number from your house, there’s a good chance she’ll track you to your house and family.You put the card back and grab your jacket. And if you’re going to be Spider-man again, you’ll need a better costume, one that’s more durable. And, right now, you have some money to work with.>[ ]Go downstairs and say goodbye to Aunt May>[ ]Go to a bookstore to buy books on costuming>[ ]Go to fabric store, buy fabrics>[ ]Write in

Are there still payphones in NYC?
>>27013204>>[ ]Go downstairs and say goodbye to Aunt May>>[ ]Go to a bookstore to buy books on costumingNow what is it that has Gwen so upset. It can't be the fact we confessed we liked her. I mean it was incredibly obvious to everyone but Peter that she had a thing for him.
>>27013223I refuse to believe that we do not have a library card.But if we somehow don't, then we should acquire one immediately.Not only does it grant access to books, but also a chance of being able to use computers that can't be directly traced back to us.
>>27013204>buying booksYeah, nah, Let's go to the local library, find a book on costuming, and like >>27013223 said, just write down the information we really want.
>>27013290It could be because we inadvertently made her dad look bad in front of the entire city of New York....But c'mon, you know the Black Cat is a master of disguise, but you don't question your daughter suddenly showing up at a soon-to-be crime scene?
>>27013274If so then her actual stalker has probably been making use of them by now. If we want to talk to her we're going to have to do it in person.

>>27013225>Radio ShackYeah, we need to make Spider-Trackers. A laser mike would be useful too, so we can hear stuff inside of buildings from far away.
>>27013333Hard to do that without literally creeping over to her house.Or somehow catching the stalker for her.
>>27013331Too obvious. I suspect she sneaked after us to make sure we didn't get in trouble with her dad and ended up seeing everything.
>>27013347Pourquoi?Because it seems we've reached an impasse with Gwen?

>>27013223>>27013296>>27013302Using a library card leaves records easily traced. Using our cash from the rescue is much harder to track
>>27013375Is that really any less obvious?But I don't know, the Black Cat likely has training with parkour and we were able to notice her pretty quickly.Not sure when Gwen would have had the time to learn how to move silently and evade any detection.
>>27013405We don't even have to check books out of the library though.Still you have a point.
>>27013405...Yes, because *they* will be watching every local library in queens for any suspicious checkouts like clothing design....

>>27013347Apologies. I think that before contacting the super thief we should probably figure out the layout of Oscorp, exactly what we are looking for (stuff on dad, evidence of wrong doing and everything one genetic manipulation at least) and what our priorities for the operation actually are. You know, try not to look like an utterly amateurish highschooler when we meet with her.

>>27013472We need to keep her interested in us.Otherwise before you know it she's stealing our blood.
>>27013472And what are we looking for? How will it benefit us? Why do we need it? And what will we be doing with it?
>>27013526I thought we wanted proof Osborn had our parents offed
>>27013538He's probably not going to keep that in his desk at Oscorp. It'd probably be a better idea to get a look at his research to find out what the hell happened to us.

>>27013983no way, much better choiceMuay Thai is a combat sport from the muay martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on foot is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fight very efficient
>>27014065>gross a bit but make it obvious that you're just keeping up appearances before agreeing.
>>27014155I like, definitely fits the spider motif.
>>27014136We need to find Shang-Li and train with him. Invent Spider-Fu.

>>27014019>it has been corrected, thank you.
>>27014155Yeah, learn some Muay Thai, maybe a little Judo on the side.Spider-Man, to me, really shines as a squirrely-as fuck grappler, and while Muay Thai fits because "Art of eight limbs", Spidey's all about taking on foes bigger and tougher than he is, and using their strength abnd abilities against them, which is what Judo is about at its core.
>>27014155As someone who's fought a Muay Thai fighter in a tournament; these guys an't nothing to fuck with. Mix with some kung-fu and some Israeli Commando stuff and you have a very dangerous person.

>>27014577That's what I wanted to say anyway
>>27014434>>27014404I agree on karate. A practicioner that learns to apply their techniques outside of the practiced forms is dangerous as hell.Tournaments are no comparison either as most of what karate teaches is meant to maim, break, and cripple.An unleashed Karateka will kill you with his bare hands.A skilled one will render you incapacitated in very few moves.It's not good for spidey though in terms of the forms however. Spidey's got superhuman agility and strength so I'm backing something more graceful like Capoeira.It's hard to be effective in the real world, however if spidey used it, he'd be nigh-untouchable with their evasive movements, propensity to "not" get caught. Then theres the use of the body's agility, flexibility, kicks... It'd be great for spidey and rightly less lethal and destructive. I also get the feeling that a boxing spiderman will destroy his hand with his own strength if he fucks up a punch on a bruiser like Rhino/Scorpion/Green Goblin..
>>27014551>>27014555>>27014556"I.... I wasn't hungry anyway."not a spaghetti moment; but we ARE a bad liar.
>>27014631At least to her.
>>27014588Krav maga is for maiming and killing in the fewest possible moves.I could support that if we were going straight bounty hunter.

>>27014527Hey Cos, would you mind adding the fact that choices requiring rolls are marked to the rules pastebin? Wouldn't have changed my choice, but it would have been nice to know that's what the (****) was about.
>>27014656No, Krav Maga is designed for disabling an attacker and preventing them from attacking again in the least possible moves. Systema is designed for using an opponents strength against them.
>>27014603Tournament guy here. I'm a brown belt in Karate ("retired" due to having my leg broke too many times) and ya it's good stuff; especially if it's not a McDojo. If you fuse it with Muay Thai like a few of the other students did you can really do some critical damage. And this is in mind with my teacher only teaching us the core stuff, katas, etc. It was pretty much street fighting and it was awesome. Some of the best days of my life.
>>27014603Bagua still fits better with how we'd best use our advantages as Spiderman. Being able to take someone's back in a fight with our agility means we become very hard to hit, making the most of our current stat distribution.
>>27014631Back when I lived at home, my mom always thought I was a terrible liar. She was kind of right though; whenever she asked me about little shit, I always gave myself anyway, but whenever she asked me about something relevant, she never could figure it out.
>>27014273I like your style, I'm original Muay Thai guy. I agree that we should mix some Judo in there to become better with throws and grapples.You must remember Muay Thai also has several different clinch techniques, most of them designed for standing use. It also has a core defense based around blocking, redirection, avoidance, evasion, disruption, and anticipation.

>>27015303Easy to move in. Then, as we get better, we can see about learning how to make a more durable costume without sacrificing flexibility.
>>27015303>more stylishWe have no in-character reason to think that durability would be a significant concern.Our proto-costume didn't rip or tear at all, and we currently have no intention of fighting anyone.The only reason we thought we might need a better costume would be because we noticed it looked bad when we got our picture taken.
Lets just avoid some of these mistakes...
>>27015303DurableOur strength and natural agility should help compensate for any increased weight.And if it doesn't work out, we can always mod it.
>>27015303Easy to move in
>>27015404If we're going that route, couldn't we just make in out of interlocking pieces of spandex (or the equivalent) and then use our spider stickiness to make sure they don't fall off? Or yet he power of zippers?
>>27015303More durable KAMEN SPIDER!!!!!
>>27015516Not until we can build a micro arc-reactor.
>>27015486Like do we have a not-metagamey reason to prioritize durability as of now?
>>27015493... ya spandex sucks.I worked as Spider-Man at Universal fot a stent back when I lived in orlando.I don't think it was actual spandex; but dear god it did not breath AT ALL.
>>27015578"Yknow it'd be pretty bad if my mask got caught on something and tore. Especially if I'm going after Osborn."
>>27015608But it's stuck to our face with our sticky power.Are you expecting us to walk headfirst into nails?Or have knives thrown at us?Rescue cats from trees, with disastrous results?
>>27015578A more durable outfit will holdup longer without needing to be replaced. It can also lesson damage you can take better than the easier to move in outfit.
>>27015578Osborn has guards; we might need to fight some of them.
>>27015639With the way we roll, I totally expect to be battered getting a cat out of a tree.
>>27015633While I don't see the reason to worry about damage, I suppose I can see it being potentially thrifty.Do all three options cost approximately the same, in terms of materials?
>>27015389Gonna be honest, the idea of Tony being a head in a jar is actually pretty funny.
Guys, we need to leave Rider Spider theme for Gwen; she's a fan after all.
Durability, Cos. Seems like we'd have to put less upkeep into the costume and if we're going into Oscorp, a more durable outfit will probably help.
>>27015681Jar full of booze.
>>27015633Hmm, how much of a hindrance are we talking here? I'd happily sacrifice (+2) on agility rolls for a significant durability boost and some damage reduction, but I think we probably need to upgrade our costum making skills before that's going to be a legitimate option. On the other hand, if we could then I'd happily switch my vote from flexibility to durability.
>>27015718So I assume it's the rest of the mangaverse that's bad enough to tar the reputation, because that sounds flat-out awesome.
>>27015796I have no idea if it's booze or not, I just think that's how Tony would want to live as a head in a jar.
>>27015303Easy to move in.
>>27015822Are you kidding? All the alcohol would dry out his skin. He takes his booze like a gerbil.
I won't lie... she's gunna be hard for me to turn down.
>>27015651At base costs? Yes. Actually, I'm going to explain things and take a new vote because it might change people's choices.Basically there's three costume choices here and that's how you're going to focus on your costume, the other two aspects becoming secondary focusesEase to move in- Basic Spiderman outfit. These outfits will be more focused upon moving and getting around fast. They're also thin enough to put under normal clothes. This line leads to more agile suits- with no agility roll penalties.Durability- thicker multi-part uniform that focuses on protecting you from damage and allows you to not have to replace it so often. The thicker material is not able to be hidden, so you will need to change into this. This line is more protective and the Spider-armors would be considered parts of this line. This line will add to constitution- damage reduction if you will.Stylish- These outfits are designed with aesthetics first and foremost and give bonuses to fellowship based on the design. Spiderman Noir and anything fancy like people asking for 'Kamen Spiderman' would be part of this line.At your current Costuming level- you will have to focus on one branch. >[ ]Easy to move in>[ ]Durable>[ ]Stylish.

>>27016017Eventually?Yes, but it would require costuming Talents to do so as you try to become proficient with making things with different material types and whatnot.
>>27015937Well considering agility is our best trait we don't need help with that so much. I'd say stylish for the fellowship bonuses
>[x]Easy to move inLet's go with this first, then as our skills progress, let's see about getting a little fancier with our threads. Right now, we got our "Proto-Spider-Man" outfit. We go with easy to move in for the classic Spidey look, or if you all prefer, the Ben Reily Spider-Man look. Then, as we get better with costuming, we get... creative with the Spidey-suit designs.
>>27015937My vote remains stylish...for reasons.
>>27015937we're a nerdy teenage boy, who probably likes super heroes and comics.stylish, fuck practicality
>>27016067Question, if we built a power armor a la iron man, would that still count as costuming?
Easy to move in is a dead end. Gonna wind up going against tougher and tougher enemies and we can't get a costume that gives us more and more agility. Durability is the way to Spider-Armor and all the neat stuff that goes with it.
>>27015937>[ ]DurableIs it so wrong that I'm actually more worried about mundane dangers, instead of super villains? Fire, falling rubble, shrapnel, etc.
Durable, because Murderman Spider-Man and his various armors always end up looking the best.
So, guys, how's that whole "acting like a greedy mother fucker" thing working out for you? You liking the whole "Gwen won't talk to us anymore" thing?
>>27015937Easy to move in. Can't excell at spider martial arts if you can't move.
>>27015937Gotta go with Durability for the convenience of replacing, not worrying as much about patch-jobs, and not coming home with horrible bleeding wounds that are obvious.When we get better at Costume design I say we delve into more style for a kamen rider hybrid armor.
>>27016110a better example would be the iron spider suit that tony stark made us, how would we go about building that.And the answer would probably be stylishWhich is also my vote>>27015937
>>27015937Lets work ass backwards and go with stylish firstonce we get better we can figure out how to look good AND have durability.

>>27016168Will become a lot easier when we get a hideout or a hotel room of our own
If we go "easy to move in" we can probably integrate some tech like Spider-Tracers and Omni-tool like stuff once we get smart enough.Durability we might eventually be able to incorporate some plating and robotics.Stylish... well we might be able to figure out a way to launch fireworks whenever we start a fight and have our own little WWE style entrance theme and light show.
>>27016193good point, I'm changing my vote from durable to stylish
>>27016171YES! I like it!
>>27016193We're a smart teenager though...
>>27016218and now I want stylish even more
Doesn't Spidey have some kind of limited recovery factor at some point? That would be a nice perk
Still gonna stick with Durable. Less tiem we have to focus on costuming in the future, less time Aunt May is suspicious of us. It also means we can accrue money instead of burning it on replacing ruined spandex or elaborate designs.
Not to derail this, but what do you guys think of using a Spectacular point to get rid of that parker luck sitting around?
>>27015937>easy to move inProbably better for not setting off alarms or making enough of a rackette to pique someone's curiosity while stumbling around in high security Oscorp labs.
>>27015937going with stylish
Gonna have to go for easy to move in. Being able to have our suit under our outfit is going to make responding to situations much quicker, meaning we can seem more omniscient in our hero persona.
For everyone voting durable, look at that picture cosgrove posted. Nothing about it suggests spider armor at some point. All I see is spiderman wearing some leathers.Remember, Costgrove said anything fancy (like kamen rider armor [which semi resembles spider armor]) would be stylish.
>>27015937Durable. Please not stylish...
>>27016377I want durable for practicality reasons. Not armor reasons.Adaptive armor will be once we get Venom anyway.
>>27016377Except he says "The more protective spider-armors would be considered this" under "Durable"
>>27015937fuck the haters, going with stylish

>>27016265>what do you guys think of using a Spectacular point to get rid of that parker luck sitting around?I'd like to.
>>27016498I dont think any of the suits will give penalties, only bonus's to different stats

>>27016497Ha. Don't hold your breath.
>>27015937cosgrove, stop this vote pretty soon, its already been nearly 20 minutes. I'll vote for stylish
>>27016265not a bad idea
>>27016516No, the durability suite explicitly gives us an agility penalty. I'm assuming that stylish just breaks super easy, but I wanted to make sure that that's it.

What is the obsession over looking like Kamen Rider but having none of the bonuses we're going to need?
>>27016553>No, the durability suite explicitly gives us an agility penalty. I'm assuming that stylish just breaks super easy, but I wanted to make sure that that's it.No, there'll be penalties to stylish, too. mainly to perception.Btu five more minutes and I'll be writing
>>27016553We're already poor and Jameson hates our guys and has sway on the town.Do we really want to wrap ourselves in an elaborate cosplay we'll constantly have to repair and show off every time we step outside?
>[X]StylishKamen Rider Spiderman
>>27016577Sorry, you're right. Please read the last sentence of the "Easy to move in" section above and tell me what you think.
Durable, people. C'mon. Toku suit can wait until later, I'd rather survive until we can take stuff to combine stylish and durable.
Rolled 1 + 2>>27016597You know what, I'm switching to agility. We do know that that is one of our strengths, best not to impede that. Let's go with 616 costume for now. We can always design more later. I mean if Stark had many suits for special circumstances.
>>27016597>penalties to perceptionI'm guessing that black cat is going to laugh her ass of at us
>>27016648No, perception as in the ability to see and sense what's around us.
>>27016597>>27016446>>27015937Since easy to move in can't win, I vote for durability.We can look a bit stylish; but I'd rather have a higher survival rate than a flash and shine photogenic bonus. Unless we're going after Black Cat; which I wouldn't recommend even though I really like her.
>>27016597You know that's kind of stuff you need to say at the start...

>>27015937>[ ]DurableBased off Cosgrove last post. Going with that.
>>27016597Eh I'm good with sticking with agility.Don't fix what isn't broken.
>>27016672>>27016697Yeah, I'm not a fan either
>Alright, gonig to count, then write
>>27016670I think some of the stuff was meant to just be common sense, and meant to only be elaborated upon later.Our indecision made him spoil game mechanics, unfortunately.Apologies, Cosgrove.
>>27016672Nah, let's go with Noir. Much better costum.
>>27016672Actually I'm hoping for something closer to this>>27012593
>>27016748Add a oair of web web shooting pistols to our arsenal and I'm good with this.
>>27016748To be honest, I'm not really sure why he listed Noir under stylish, and yet >>27015960>>27015370 as durable.There doesn't seem to be much functional difference except in color and some accessories.
>>27016787It's the hat, trenchcoat, and (maybe) vest. They all restrict movement, stealth, and perception without adding anything but style.
>>27016787Because noir is stylish, while that thing you are referencing is crude and boorish.
>>27016787probably simalar at level 1 and changes a bit as we go
If stylish wins, and we dont go with Kamen rider I would be okay with a look like this
At the time I called a vote- there was a Tie between Durability and Stylish.give me a moment, I've got to decide what to do here.
>>27016861I don't know, It'd make us look kind of villainous.
>>27016861People are changing their votes to durable or easy to move in. I dunno what one is ahead, but yeah, either of those choices would be fine with me.
>>27016864Well that's weird. Second time that's happened right?
>>27016864A tie... holy mother of god.Where's that one AC-Guy pic when a tie happens.
>>27016864double the penalties half the bonuses
>>27016864Well to be honest, I find >>27015370To be pretty fucking stylish in and of itself.Also will be useful if we ever intend to do spider-stuff in the rain or in winter.
>>27016864Flip a coin?
>>27016891Though how we're going to make a custom jacket that cool, without splurging on money, I have no idea.
>>27016864Isn't noir the compromise of durability and stylish anyway?(no I'm not just saying that because I didn't know noir existed an hour ago and really like the take on spidey's uniform)
>>27016916You should read it. It's a pretty fun mini.It's pretty much if Spider-Man carried on as Batman in the 30's.
>>27016916In the sense that it's made up of a lot of parts that can be replaced as they're damaged, yes. But the Noir uniform is (except for the mask, boots, and gloves) just clothes.If you like it, you should really check out the Spider-Man: Noir series. It's one of the better ones.
>>270168752 durable also changed their votes to stylish soooo...
>>27016864maybe just give us half bonuses to both but both penalties at full price? Either that or just roll a 1d2
"Hey. Hey Parker. Nice threads."
I think one of the problems people aren't considering is that when Spider-Man gets costumes like the Last one, as well as Noir, he's a full-grown man.We're probably a lot scrawnier in our current teenage state, enhanced musculature or no.
>>27016982>>27016884...That seems like it would be a penalty for indecision.
>>27016864We could always go the exp-debt route.
>>27017018More like peter couldn't make up his mind, got overambitious and went for a suit with both. Turned out not quite as good in both areas because we're still a beginner.
>>27017036Yeah, plus we still have the first suite, so it's ok if we end up with a few scrapped prototypes.
>>27017063huh, might as well make all three and switch out between missions
>>27017070That's actually not the worst idea I've ever heard. Still not sure why we'd ever pick the Stylish one in that case though.
>>27017070Can't do that at our level. We're locking in one design family to specialize in at least for the near term.
>Making a spider themed costume instead of a cat themed one
>I'm going to make this compromise- You'll make a durable outfit that tries to be stylishyou'll take some penalties to their strengths. you won't have as much durability as a normal durable one or it won't look as good as a normal stylish one. But you'll have less of the penalties of stylish, as durable was the basis.It will also be a slightly harder roll to make.>if no problems here, I'll begin writing.
>>27017106Gotta level up our sewing skills I guess.
>>27017098Hey, gotta make money some how and performing at children's birthday parties is an easy gig to get in a Karen spidey suit.
>>27017129Works for me,
>>27017129Alright.Also, burn Spectacular Point to neutralize Parker Luck Y/N?
>>27017128Of course, she digs the sider costum.
>>27017129Can we use a spectacular point to enhance the roll?
>>27017129I'm completely fine with this
>>27017150I mean we should probably have at least one.So we could do that to make sure we get a good costume. Or we can wipe the karmic slate clean, at least briefly.
>>27017145Yes, 1000 times yes
>>27017129Ehhhh I guess.
>>27017129That's fine.Now we can move on to... something?
>>27017145N - voting for conservative power use in a Congrove thread usually backfires, but I think we should pre-burn a point when we make the costum so let's hold off for now.
>>27017168So I guess Spectacular Point Options areA: Cancel out Parker LuckB: Use it preemptively towards costume makingC: Keep it in the bank with the other one
>>27017189I say we negate the parker luck we got.
Why don't we just cancel out parker luck AND get the bonus to the roll? We're still really early in the new chapter, we should be relatively safe at the moment. At least safe enough we can risk failing a few rolls.
>more durable>try to be stylishYou spend time on the library trying to find ways to make good durable costumes, but you also spend some time looking up how to try to make it nice.

Damn, we were going to raise this much of a fuss over costume-making, we should have taken the costume-making feat during the last end chapter.
>>27017226>Research ElectronicsTech time
>>27017226>Research something elseElectronics. See if we can't start thinking up some ideas for shit like Spider Tracer prototypes. Since we upgraded our Spider Sense so we know where the danger is coming from, and Spidey uses his Spider Sense to keep track of his tracers, it'd be easier to keep track of them than if we didn't upgrade out Spider Sense
>>27017254I don't think we stand a chance at completing it in one night. We haven't even achieve amateur status yet, I'm pretty sure that's auto fail territory.
>>27017267Of course we should have.But hopefully we won't have any similarly open-ended things.Or if they do, it's just like a ten minute time limit.

>>27017338Yeah, but we're a superhero. Nothing is called what it is. We don't have a phone, we have a Spider-Phone. We can't have a car, we get a spider-car.
>>27017226>[ ]Research something else (write in)Computer hacking.There's a hard drive password waiting for us to get cracked at home. Diversify Spidey for other forms of web antics. Heh, so lame.
>>27017355Yep. And considering that style presumably gives a stealth penalty let me say I'm damn glad we picked that.
Thanks for being so understanding and cool Cosgrove. It makes sense that there would have been a lot of arguing about costumes.Anyways, I'm going to bed. But, before I do I just want to say I was thinking about this universe and I figured what # in the Marvel Multiverse it would be; 26434747, the number of Cosgrove's post that started Issue 1.
>>27017383Actually I think durably gives the agility penalty, which implies to me it would be the one that hurts stealth.
>>27017401Don't think so. Durability sit that flashy so I think it's more likely to pass a spot check. Style is supposed to be attention grabbing, just look at that Karen suit!
>>27017424Durability /isn't/ that flashySorry, tired.
>>27017338Only if it's pre-paid, in cash. Don't want the cops to find us out.

>>27018146>can get the phone company to remotely activate our unit's gps....So what you're saying is, no Spectacular Spider-Phones until we get a lot better at messing with electronics?
>>27017908Take a scenic walk. Meandering about aimlessly got us back in touch with Eddie, clearly we've got a good thing going with it. Besides, we can sense danger and have a standing long jump of fifteen meters. Anyone comes after us we'll be fine.
>[ ]Take a scenic walk homeYou decide to take a more scenic walk home. It’s longer and out of the way, but in this light, there’s no doubt that its beautiful to look at. You continue walking, talking a road through a nearby park, and head towards your house. However, you see a man sitting on a park bench, several bags next to him. He’s resting his chin upon his hand. He sticks out like a sore thumb- its hard not to notice him!>[ ]Talk to the man>[ ]not your problem, continue on home>[ ]Avoid the man>[ ]Write in
>>27018146As long as we keep the phone off when we're not using it/when we're out of uniform it's fine.

>>27018164>>[ ]Talk to the man
>>27018164Did you mean to post an image?What makes him stand out?That he has multiple bags?
>>27018159The GPS only works when the phone is on. As long as we don't keep calling from the same place over and over we'd be fine.
>>27018164>talk to the man
>>27018164Are we spider sensing anything from him?Regardless.>[ ] Not your problem, continue on homeSee ya later, Uncle Ben's future murderer!
>>27018147>So is Osborn.He's probably a good guy too, and our dad was just paranoid. Do we have any actual evidence that Osborn is bad, other than dear old Dad writing "I don't like him"?
>>27018164Talk to this man. I'm sure he's not any sort of villain. And he looks in need of help. Given his bags, he's probably some lost traveler of some sort. Or...wait, how big is this man, and is he wearing a huge trench coat? Running into Ben Grimm would be kind of awesome.
>>27018164Shopping bags? Or travel bags?
>>27018164"Good evening. You okay?"
>>27018164>[X]Kill him. Start our career as a supervillian.
>>27018164If it isn't one of Spider-Man's most notable enemies... The Conspicuous Man!
>>27018164[X]Talk to the man>not your problem>uncle ben dies.
>>27018242We could afford rent with the life insurance.
>>27018242OR... talk to the man, don't get home in time to stop Uncle Ben's killer.
>>27018242Exactly. Peter Parker can NEVER say something isn't his problem. All that does is kill his loved ones.
What if Uncle Ben isn't in danger of dying at all and Cosgrove is laughing at how we are freaking out over every little thing and how it could potentially lead to Uncle Ben's death?
>>27018220I could back this.... If we had a proper motive.. We need Uncle Ben to die for a proper motive..>>27018254We did it with Black cat. got us 2 grand.Great track record so far.We also haven't heard the great power speech yet. If we don't hear it and he dies, Gwen's our only moral compass. And Gwen's not talking to us.. We're falling in with Black Cat.. Black cat's a bad crowd... It just kind of spirals from there..
>>27018159If we paid in cash and remember to turn it off when we head home then it'll still work out.
>>27018273Mostly we're just joking about it. Like someone said up-thread: Uncle Ben can't die until his death would have karmic significance. He's safe for now.
>>27018164Technically talking to him doesn't have to be sitting down and starting a conversation.We can just ask him if he's doing alright if evidently we noticed something that warrants further investigation....Like is there something wrong with my computer, that's stopping me from seeing the picture?I mean is the guy wearing a costume? Covered in blood? Has green skin? Is the Watcher?
>>27018273I'm not totally sure why we're so scared of Uncle Ben dying. His uncle died in the cannon fiction and he turned out great until he died for completely unrelated reasons.On the other hand, he visited another universe where Uncle Ben survived (but May died) and he turned into a super villain.
Well this is either Red or just some random guy stopping us from getting hope to prevent Red from killing everyone.Hope we get back in time like we promised though.
>>27018115We do that because we screwed him over.Bad.If the police fail to catch a master thief, that's one thing.But losing a suspect in custody, nevermind that there was no way they could hold her, is something else alltogether.JJ is probably breathing down NYPD necks to get Stacy fired.And its our fault.THAT'S why gwen won't talk to us.
>>27018318>And its our fault.It isn't, though. If they'd caught old Blackie all on their own, they would've had the same problem.
>>27018293Let's do that, have Aunt May die. I need a pic of the villain spidey.
>>27018318Dude what did you want us to do?Sucker-punch her into unconsciousness?Web her arms and legs together?Their inability to catch Black Cat, or recognize that she was an impostor in the first place, is entirely their own fault.
>>27018318We captured her. We can't haul her off to jail for them and guard her 24/7. At some point the police have to take responsibility.
>>27018164Spidey-sense isn't going offHe might stick out, but that doesn't mean he's a bad guyIt's NYC, do you go talking to every Tom Dick and Harry you meet on the street?We have no reason to interact with this guy unless he starts something.Keep walking. We have an appointment to keep.
>>27018333You see, they never would have caught old blackie on their own, just like they are incapable of containing her without us. Thus it is out fault since we are the only reason that spathe situation could arise in the first place and the only one present capable of bringing the mess to a satisfying conclusion.
>>27018338>Web her arms and legs together?I... I have to go. Rearrange some folders. Yes.
>>27018292I mean clearly SOMETHING about this guy grabbed our attention, and made us feel like there would be a point to talking to him beyond just striking up a conversation with a random stranger.But we're not allowed to know what?I don't understaaaaaaaand.
>>27018365>You see, they never would have caught old blackie on their own, just like they are incapable of containing her without us. Thus it is out fault since we are the only reason that spathe situation could arise in the first place and the only one present capable of bringing the mess to a satisfying conclusion.That's stupid. The cops being incompetent baboons isn't our fault, it's the fault of endemic corruption in the NYPD.
>>27018337He has the ability to steal the life energy from superhumans, so he drained the life out of all the heroes and villains in his universe, and starts luring other superhumans from other universes to kill them and steal their powers. He has a warehouse full of dead spider-men
>[ ]Talk to the man.You approach him, not getting too good of a look at him, but he’s got lots of traveling bags on the bench with him. Seems like he’s looking at a map. “Excuse me, sir?”His head snaps up and he stares at you. His stare’s unnerving, like he sees through you and everything you’ve done, his gaunt face only adding to the effect. He’s got dark red hair and seems to be wearing a priest’s outfit. “Yes?”His voice is recognizably tinged with a southern drawl, but he seems to be trying to suppress it. You clear your throat and look at him and his bags. “Do you need any help?”The man blinks and then an empty smile crosses his face. This man doesn’t send off your spidier-sense, but he’s unnerving as hell. “Ask and the lord shall provide, eh?”He shakes his head lightly. “Yes, I need to know where to find Our Lady of Saints Church. Do you know how I can get there?”You think about it before nodding. Yeah, you’ve seen that place before From here… You relay the instructions as the man rises and look down on you. “Thank you, my son. I must be going now.”He grabs all the bags, showing extraordinary strength for a man so thin, and begins to head off. Before long, its just you, alone, in the park.>[ ]Head home>[ ]Use phone to Call Black Cat>[ ]Write in.

>>27018338>>27018342The black cat is a supervillian.Emphasis on super.Demanding the nypd hold her is like saying detective soandso should arrest Kingpin or punch out Daredevil.They aren't prepared for that.If what cosgrove said is true /noone/ is prepared for the peopke like /us/.And bring the crazy in the suit who made our friends dad look so stupid that he may already have lost his job is our fault.Bcause noone else will take responsibility.Who says uncle ben has to die for us to man up?JUSTICE
>>27018426It's New York City, full of weirdos.At least this guy has hygiene.Is the excuse we're going to justify for not doing this, and ultimately getting people we care about killed.
>>27018365Well, that assumes that they would be able to contain her with us. When we left her with them her legs were webbed up. She somehow managed to get out of that, change into her costume, and evade or disable the entire police detail guarding her. I doubt we could do more than slow her down. Even if we could, it seems kind of unfair to blame us. If the Black Cat could fool Captain Stacy so easily, and get past her police guard, it kind of is the police's fault. The intervention of superhuman vigilantes should never be necessary unless you're dealing with Doctor Doom or the like. Step up your game, NYPD.
>>27018443Dude.The Black Cat is a rich girl with training and toys.The fact that they didn't search her the second they had the chance really is not our problem.Also, villains get taken to prison literally all the time. Superheroes don't actually carry them to jail.Are you high?
>>27018451I was just curious about him.
>>27018443And could we have known she was a super villain at that point?All we knew was that she was a master of disguise, we didn't know she was also a good escape artist until after she escaped from the NYPD
>>27018403>[ ]Use phone to call Black Cat
>>27018441Pay phone, if the new phone is a strictly for hero use thing.
>>27018403>Protagonist looking to become a hero>Meets THAT MAN.Rejoice, young man. Your wish will finally come true.
>>27018492But we don't want to become a hero.Like... that is not something we have any real interest in doing.Do you even Peter Parker?
>>27018501I dunno, we had a lot of fun catching the black cat. We should make a habit of catching her.
>>27018515That's not heroism.That's foreplay.
>>27018432I guess it makes sense for us to be at least mildly interested in the weirdly intense priest guy.
>>27018522I don't hear any objections.
>>27018522Random question but.. If Wolverine has a heal-factor.. Why doesn't he just lift all day erryday till all of his muscle fibers tear and then some for Maximum Stronk?I mean, with healing like that, he'd literally get stronger AS he worked out...
>>27018403>[ ]Head homeWould like to head home with our loot now. Fastly... Fuck this guy.
>>27018403Call Gwen, then Black cat. If nothing interesting comes up, then follow the man.
>>27018501>But we don't want to become a hero.No, but we want to fix our family's financial trouble. If Uncle Ben dies, the life insurance will go towards that.
>>27018567I'm pretty sure he's already like at least twice as strong as a normal person.But sometimes having a healing factor like that means that your body is essentially frozen at an arbitrary point in time.
>>27018578We called Gwen a couple hours ago and a lot before that. She knows we called. Give her a little space.
>>27018403Call Eddie Brock on the way home?He might be into late masses.
>>27018593It's a prepaid cellphone, she doesn't know the number, she may actually pick up.
>>27018578Nah no calling either of them.We don't have anything to say to Cat just yet, and Gwen we should just cool it.
>>27018584He's also carrying around a huge metal skeleton. So he probably spends a lot of his effort just moving at all.
>>27018606And then immediately hang up?
>>27018606That's not the point. Calling her several times a day when she obviously doesn't want to talk is creepy.
>>27018606Let's just not. It feels like we'd be tricking her into talking with us, and that feels... not very nice, I guess. I know we're worried about Gwen, but still, if we keep pushing her to talk to us, it'll do the exact opposite.
>>27018626We'll get like three words in.>>27018627Last we talked to her, we admitted that we liked her, she shoved our costume into our arms and ran away.Only other thing I see is if we tried to meet her at school. If I were Parker it'd be bugging the shit out of me.
>>27018649Right, she already has one stalker. Lets not add to that.
>>27018567Wolverine isn't just a guy who heals super-fast. He's got some idealized body shape that his powers always return him to. Otherwise he'd have horrible, horrible cancer and brain damage like Deadpool does. His healing bypasses normal means of muscle repair and strengthening. Presumably the musculature he does have is a manifestation of his abilities optimizing him for his role as "human predator" and what not.
>>27018403I want to call Eddie and tell him to watch out for this butcher; but that would be metagaming. I'm sure Eddie will catch onto this guys bad mojo and steer clear no problem.Lets head on home.
>>27018659That will happen but you're instincts to keep calling will have a negative effect. Patience is required or else we will seem creepy and scare her off.`
>>27018663>his abilities optimizing him for his role as "human predator" and what not.That makes a lot of sense with how he's got such a good sense of smell.
>>27018685>We reach Maximum Lovestruck teen level of unrequited love paranoia.>We mask up and tie up queen with our webbing despite her super-strength.>We hang her in a cocoon upside down and begin to tell her everything that we feel about her and how much we love here while she's gagged.> We remove the gag, she spits on us.>We drown her in the Hudson River.>We repeat this process with all other blonde girls that look like her.Full on Spidey Psycho!

>>27018731>>[ ]go work on costume
>>27018742because she's going to help us with Oscorp, we felt boob for the first time, we have her number, and Gwen's gone radio silent on us.
>>27018731>Spend time with familyIt HAS been a while since we've done this. Lets make the most of it.Night guys; catch you in the morning or next time. East Coast out!
>>27018748>We should hit Oscorp ASAPYou insane?We specifically told Gwen that we were willing to wait a long time to make sure things are done properly.Has Gwen literally become our moral compass?
>>27018731>>[ ]Call Black Cat in basement>>27018742First, because we got to second base with her after knowing her for ten seconds.Secondly, we need to touch base with her about what we're looking for at Oscorp and how to get it.I think we should talk to Gwen before that second one, but she's not picking up the phone.
>>27018768Yup, and now our moral compass is wearing a black Body-suit with fur trimming.Our moral compass is also known as our teenage dick and how easy it was to get a breast in our hand and a tongue in our mouth.>>27018772This guy gets it, though not precisely for the points I made.
>>27018731work on costume
>>27018690Some of the comics, thankfully none that are current canon, posited that Wolverine was not actually a mutant but a genetic throwback to a proto-hominid species that bred into homo sapiens eons ago. The result is that he has adaptations designed for extreme combat and survival scenarios. Which is kind of silly, because you'd think there would be a fossil record of a species of hominid with bone claws. Then again, Moon Boy exists in the Marvel universe, so anthropology must be a pretty wild field.Actually, that's my question for the next time Cosgrove gives us a free bit of setting-expansion: Did Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur exist in this timeline? I really want the evolutionary history of this world to include an immortal firetruck-red tyrannosaurus who adventured with an adorable monkey-boy.

>>27018731>[ ]studyWe should study but if we have time... work on the costume for a bit. If not then no biggie.
>>27018748Oscorp is going to be one hell of an enemy to have (multimillion dollar, I'm sorry, multiBillion dollar PR wing focused on destroying Spiderman's image and credibility. Hit squads sent to make sure the spider has a little accident...) so we'd better dame well make sure that the juice is worth the squeeze. We plan this and we go in fully prepared, not half assed and fully reliant on a thief we met on a roof top after handing her to the police. For all we know the black cat wants to sell us to Oscorp as a test subject.
>>27018861She doesn't know we have powers; but if she ever did that's a possibility.
>>27018884...We burst into the top story of a building spraying webs, calling ourselves "Spider-Man." I think that guy's being paranoid too, but if she doesn't realize we have powers she's pretty dumb.
>>27018884>>27018861Her interest is likely in the fact that there's something there for her, though her reluctance to act alone could be for reason that she's not interested in soloing the run without someone to back her up.The webshooters will be useful in wrapping up security, she'll be able to pick hard locks, and the two can pilfer ID cards and the like.We could also opt to make a third costume made for working along-side Black cat without a Spider logo or affiliation along with ditching the web shooters.
>>27018904Well, the webbing is technological, and she herself has excellent skill with a grappling line. We didn't do anything overtly superhuman, at least not by the standards of comic book universes. Wait until she sees us walk up walls or jump fifteen feet straight up.
>>27018952She doesn't know the webbing is technological. In the normal Marvel universe most of his friends even thought it was natural.
>[ ]go work on costumeYou begin working on the costume. You lock the basement door after taking down the sewing machine and some clothes that have holes in them.

>>27018991If we're doing the mask, should we invoke a Spectacular Point to make sure it's done right?I think those lenses might be tricky.
>>27019023we can always redo the mask while using the old one.
>>27018991>[ ]Gloves>>27019021 Brings up a good point. Really shouldn't damage those...
>>27018977>She doesn't know the webbing is technological. In the normal Marvel universe most of his friends even thought it was natural.This universe is about to tick up to superpowers. It hasn't yet. Her natural assumption would be all our tricks are technology or training (assuming she isn't some kind of superhuman herself).It's actually really funny (and explains why she gave us her first kiss, assuming that was true) when you think about it. She probably thinks we're some kind of badass elite acrobat/ninja/gadgeteer who has trained his whole life, and has made his first appearance in order to capture her. Then, when she follows us, we not only respond mostly affirmatively and flirtatiously to her advances, but we also bring up the possibility of a heist on Oscorp.For a woman like her, that's probably the sort of ridiculous fantasy you entertain in private moments but never dream of coming true. Gonna be a real let down for her when she finds out we're some high schooler who got superpowers by pure chance.

>>27019101Use Spectacular Point.We need to improve the peripheral vision, get better head protection, make it harder to de-mask by accident or on purpose, add a feature to remove the lower part when liplocking or when we need to injest something.
Rolled 5 + 3>>27019101Well! That sucks.
>>27019116>make it harder to de-mask by accident or on purposeUnless someone can neutralize our ability to stick to things, that seems a wasted effort.
>>27019108>Considering she changed her form from Gwen in regular clothes to the Cat in her catsuit, she's probably a mutant.I don't know, I can imagine ways a mere mortal could've pulled that off. Even if she's got superpowers, she might figure she's the only one.
Rolled 10 + 3>>27019154Until we showed up spraying webbing and sticking to walls. Suddenly she's not alone! Hence, second base.
>>27019108Remember that Gwen wears baggy clothes all the time, and wore fake glasses as well.Essentially she's always a bit disguised, which might have made things easier for Black Cat.
>>27019177Fooling her dad though? That takes changing a face.
>>27019186Or a mask.Or he's not too attentive.
>>27019109>>27019116...So I guess no one else felt the need to use a Spectacular Point?Or even explain why not?Rather just... talk about things not related to what's actually happening?Things seem slower than normal.
>As it is, you fail. I will be back in five minutes, but you do have the potential to succeed if you wish.

>>27019229I guess I'd be okay with it...? I don't have a very strong opinion.
>>27019234Well the guy did say to use a point so 17+8
>>27019234I mean... I've been saying it'd be worth using a Spectacular Point on our costume the whole thread.I don't think people are too focused tonight.Costume debate wore people out?
>>27019116>add a feature to remove the lower part when liplocking or when we need to injest something.Yeah, let's use our only method to reduce Parker Luck to add a mask feature that saves us the time of pulling up the bottem of our mask.It's like the goddamn web shooters all over again.
>>27019245The rules for preemptive use is >Pre-roll: to use a spectacular point before you roll, there must be five people minimum, without rolling and in the first three minutes after my post announcing a roll, who go ‘use a spectacular point for the roll’ for it to be counted for a preroll.I forgot to do that thing.Only one person did not.So no it does not count because people haven't been paying attention.
>>27019255I think we should reduce our parker luck too, while we're at it.
>>27019255...Dude right now it's just to make it actually work right.Otherwise we'd have to get more fabric, and maybe more mirrored lenses or whatever.That doesn't grow on trees.
>>27019273Seems a little over complicatedanyways i vote for using a pointeven with the +4 we will succeed
>>27019234Lets not waste a point on the costume of all things. We still have some excess parker luck to get rid of don't we?
>>27019296Eh, it'd work fine if tonight wasn't so slow.
>>27019255>For each point it increases, the Parker Luck will aid your major enemies. For example, if the villain is trying to find you loved ones or any other villainous schemes, they will have a bonus to their roll equal to your Parker Luck.>they will have a bonus to their roll equal to your Parker Luck.Since our chance for Parker Luck is *equal* to our chance for getting a spectacular point, *and* rerolling also gives you a point of Parker Luck, the best strategy is to hoard our Spectacular Points, and only use them to avoid major desasters, and keeping our Parker Luck as low as possible.
>>27019310we have enough to use on this roll and to reduce our parker luck to 0
>>27019310Eh, we're going to have to make the mask eventually, possibly sooner rather than later.And it won't get any easier.
>>27019320Yeah, so? We will be earning Spectacular Points at around the same rate as Parker Luck. Since Parker Luck is *also* earned at the same time something bad happens, chances are that we might be spending TWO spectacular points when we roll a Nat 1.Unless we roll a Nat 20 twice as a Nat 1, we should be saving all our luck to mearly undo our bad luck.
>>27019354*Nat 20 twice as often as a Nat 1
>>27019354That's... really boring.
Regardless of that, can we agree to use a Spectacular Point to eliminate our current Parker Luck?
>>27019354wheres the fun in that?
>Seems like there's some arguing about the SP spending and there's not five for it.>SP not spent>writing
>>27019375Fucking A'the amount of people paying attention lowers for a second and this shit happens

Since Parker Luck is *also* earned at the same time something bad happens, chances are that we might be spending TWO spectacular points when we roll a Nat 1.Wow, I didn't even notice that.M-maybe Parker Luck just serves as a way to slowly increase the game's difficulty as we level up?
>>27019367>>27019374I didn't design the system, blame Cosgrove.
>>27019354We also eat Parker Luck for certain choices.
>>27019384Audience participation has slowed down appreciably. Which makes Spectacular points... pretty hard to spend unless it's earlier in the night or during an action-packed quest.

>>27019429yeah the system needs tweaking in case viewership isnt as high as normal
Can we get some consensus to eliminate our current Parker Luck? Please?
>>27019432>>[ ]The horrors of your childhood are haunting youI like this, let's keep it going.
>>27019415It's like in Bleach Quest, never using Crit Master III except as a second instance of Crit Master II.I don't think that's the intended use of that perk.
>>27019432>>[ ]You’re worried about how Gwen’s avoiding you
>>27019432>>[ ]The Black Cat’s still stuck in your head
>>27019432>[ ]You’re worried about how Gwen’s avoiding you>>27019440I'll second this. Get that PL out of the way.
>>27019432>You’re worried about how Gwen’s avoiding youEither she's mad about us about showing up her dad or somehow saw us kissing Black Cat, and she decided the best way of dealing with that is the silent treatment,Or the Phantom of Midtown High has got her too scared to be seen with a boyfriend.
>>27019432>[x] worried about how gwens avoiding you
>>27019432>[x]You’re worried about how Gwen’s avoiding you
>>27019440I can agree to that at least.
>>27018807Not every teenager is a slave to their genitals. Besides Peter knows how dangerous Oscorp is. So stop trying to say we should do something stupid, because 'muh teenage urges!'
>>27019464If she's mad about that, I don't think it's that we showed her dad up. It's that we acted like all we cared about was the money.OR she has some serious self-esteem issues and thinks we were mocking her.
>>27019440I really don't see any reason why we shouldn't.
>There seems to be talk about it, so>SP to eliminate PL?>y/n
>>27019440Eh, we'll probably have to wait until next thread.
>>27019440I agree, anything that gives any opponent working against you a passive bonus should be removed ASAP.>>27019538Aye
>[x]You’re worried about how Gwen’s avoiding youYou let out a sigh. Gwen’s avoidance of you is really bothering you. Was it because her father looked bad after the whole thing with the Black Cat? Maybe because of that person who’s stalking her? Or, hell, maybe its because of the whole ‘Black Cat kissing you thing’ right after you confessed to her. Oh god, what if she had been there following you? What if she saw? But your Spider-sense didn’t trigger. Can it even trigger for stuff like that? Eventually, you just worry yourself to the point of exhaustion and decide to go to sleep.PETER PARKER QUEST, ISSUE #11EndTo Be Continued.
