Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27399279/Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, mutant vagrant, and you just jumped a little ways out of your skin. Creeper’s breath leaves a damp, hot trail along your neck, your skin prickling at the sudden warmth. He leaves off, grinning imperceptibly – you know, you fucking know he’s grinning, you just can’t see it – and sidles round, brushing a thin gauze of frost from the bench before sitting down beside you. Your eyes can’t help but dart briefly over the tired, frost-crystal trees and glistening paths, trying to latch on to some other human presence. There’s at least three people in your stretch of the park. Too many for him to do something rash in front of, right? Right? “Long ears, funky eyes, scaly bits…” Creeper shifts closer – close enough that you can feel the warmth coursing through his blood. You’re suddenly aware of your eyes drifting in their sockets, veering away from his face. “…and invisibility. You ever considered how lucky you and I are, boyo? That we can just vanish? Get away from all these…” He motions dismissively toward one of the other scattered park-goers – a jogger ploughing adamantly through the Christmastime snow. A fleck of disgust hangs like venom on the tip of his tongue.“…people?”>Current Funds: $68.50>$28 (Laura)>$26 (Kevin)>[ ] “Uh, yeah, I guess so…”>[ ] “I’d rather not be a homeless pariah, actually.” >[ ] “I didn’t come here to chat, Creeper.” >[ ] Write in.

He doesn’t even make any indication that he’s listening – not that you’d even know what he was thinking, anyhow, what with his face being visually off-limits. There’s just a sense of silent, unwanted scrutiny that Creeper carries around with him wherever he goes. But you’re not gonna just go agreeing with this loathsome scumbag for the sake of it. “And, to be honest, I’d rather not be a homeless pariah.” He titters way too loud, like dice clacking over a board. “If you’d stuck with me, we might’ve done a thing or two about that.” Liar. Probably.

>[X] Sarcasm.>[X] Jack out of the box. “I miss your dulcet tones and classy deportment.” Why are you being so mouthy, you wonder? This guy is terrifying. But, you guess, you’re pretty much insignificant to him. He’s part of the exceptionally extended Fisk family now, standing in the considerable (both figuratively and physically) shadow of the Kingpin. You’re a dirty homeless clown to him and it doesn’t matter what you think or say. Either way, he just chortles a bit. And snakes his arm over your shoulder, which honestly wasn’t the response you were hoping for at all. Time to get down to business. Last time Creeper got touchy it resulted in the three or four most uncomfortable minutes of your life so far. You reach into your coat and withdraw the two little bags of pills, setting them down on the wood between you. “I believe this is yours.” There is silence for a moment, and then he shifts ever closer, and pats your shoulder in manner that is far too familiar for your liking. “Oh, Johnny. Johnny boyo, you sure are golden.” Yeah, okay. That’s nice, you guess. “Where’d you find it, Johnny?”>[ ] Tell him about Noriko and Kevin.>[ ] Tell him you encountered one of them but they got away.>[ ] Tell him you found it hidden somewhere (write in).>[ ] Write in.

Guys what the fuck are you even doing?We were supposed to be working out a deal, not becoming buttbuddies with creeper.
>>27450986Yea, why are we purposefully trying to bullshit him? I mean that would be some fucking drastic change in character if we sold them out now. Can we get a retcon on the bluff thing unless we can get an explanation on why we're doing it?
>>27450986Chickening out, apparently. Which, to be fair, is perfectly in character.

Goddammit, you practiced this shit in your head and this is not how it was supposed to go, but Creeper wasn't there when you made the decision to strike a deal. And now he is.“Well, uh, there was this explosion not too far from there, you know? A blue light and shit? I was in the area, so I took a closer loo”– You find an interrupting finger suddenly on your lips. You freeze – your whole body locks up for a second, like it’d give anything to turn to stone right now, and suddenly there’s adrenaline pumping, pumping, pumping, running wild through your veins and your brain and everywhere. Shit, shit. Shit. His hand trails its way down your coat, and your eyes follow it. Eventually it comes to rest on your thigh, and you notice that while you were watching he must’ve picked up the Jack, ‘cause it’s gone. “Johnny, I really do like you.” He’s closer now. He’s breath is pooling under your hood. “So I’m going to tell you right now that if you’re about to lie to me, and I figure that shit out, two very large men are going to drag you into a van. They’ll take you to somebody’s basement and strap a bunch of electrodes up in some very unpleasant places and that will be that. Do you understand me?” You nod.

>[X] Truth>[X] Write in“Look, I’m trying to tell you that I found your thieves.” He knows. He knows you tried to bullshit him. You can just fucking feel it. But he’s not doing anything yet, just hanging over you like a crow over a shiny bauble. “A-anyway, I told them exactly who they’ve crossed, and as you might expect, they pretty much shat their pants.” “And? Where are they now?” “Yeah…” You draw in a gulp of cold air. “That’s not why I’m here. I’m not here to hand them over to you. I’m here because they want to make it up to you.” His posture changes. You’re not sure, but you think he might actually be surprised. Little Johnny Green, standing up for someone else. You don’t blame him. “Oh? And what are you, then? Their lawyer? You’re here to argue their case?” He practically hisses into your hood, leaning in closer, closer. “This isn’t a courtroom, boyo. They’ve stolen what’s mine and I want it back.

>>27451693True or he'll send us to grab some rival dealers so he can take them to his van.
>>27451546>[X] write inNo creeper, here's the deal. You walk away. You let it drop. You tell people you've killed the people who stole from you and you present bodies to support that. you should have them on hand. Because if you don't......If you don't I'll probably do something monumentally stupid that will get me killed, but I promise it will be flashy, attention grabbing, and most of all embarrassing to you. People will see you're not able to keep control of things. People like Mr. Fisk. And what happens for you then?
>>27451734And then he shoots us.
>>27451745We don't have the tank powerset, we can't do it. Besides, as soon as we walk away, he's gonna send much, MUCH more people after us than he already has. Before it was business, after stunt like that it would get personal.
>>27451734He can probably disappear us before we get to that point.
>>27451773No, I mean he shoots us as soon as the "You let is drop." hits his ears.
>[X] “I’ll do a job for you. One last job.” >PART 1You know what he wants. He wants blood or he wants money, and you can’t afford to spare much of either. What else do you have other than that? You have a crummy second-hand stove and some lumps of chicken. You have an alright coat. You used to have some hi-tech dart gun thingy but you lost that shit on account of some very rash (hindsight, 20/20) decisions. “I’ll do a job for you. One last job.” He’s stiller than usual for a moment, but his breath sharpens. Was he waiting for this? Hoping for it? Or did it just take him off guard?“You’d do that for me, Johnny? You’d do that for little ole Creeper?” His hand moves from your shoulder to your collarbone. “I’m touched.” Them. You’d do it for THEM. But you don’t give the thought voice, and instead keep business going smooth. “You have anything in mind?” “Oh, of course.” Creeper chuckles greasily. “I’ve always got something lying around for a boy with your kind of talent. Firstly, though, I’m thinking two.”“Two?” “Two jobs, not one.” “Wait, what, no”–“Two souls on the line, boyo. Understand, I own those kids.” Urgh, seriously? You forgot just how ridiculously loathsome this guy could get. “When they stole from me they became mine. And you are buying them from me. Two human souls.”
>PART 2You stew in a pit of ineffectual rage for a moment, but you have to give him a response eventually, and you might as well investigate the idea. Not like you have many other options. “What would you want me to do?” “Well,” for the first time in minutes, Creeper lays off a little, lounging back over the bench, drinking in a swig of cold NY atmosphere. “I can’t say I have two jobs lined up for you right this moment, but I do have one issue your talents could provide some real help with. It’s just a teeny little bit of larceny. There’s an item I want – well, technically, an item Fisk wants. I’ve known its whereabouts for a while but I haven’t had the means to get my hands on it.” >[ ] “What is it?”>[ ] “Who would I be stealing from.”>[ ] “Actually, I can pay you.

>>27451824what and who
>>27451946Creeper's basically a manager working under Fisk. He didn't have a good worker under him for the job and it's to risky for him personally. So he's going to get us to do it.
>>27451824>[X] Write in"Something FISK himself wants, but hasn't gotten?" "That's... quite disturbing actually.""Something so disturbing that it feels like that if I succeed in this, the second mission is going to be bigger than I can chew."
>[X] What?>[X] Who?>[X] Write in.“You want me to steal something that Wilson Fisk can’t get?” Your tone is probably far too derogatory for his liking, but you don’t care. You think you might have been struck dumb by the sheer absurdity of this shit. “You want a hobo to steal something that the motherfucking Kingpin of Crime cannot get his huge-ass hands on?” “I didn’t say that, did I?” answers Creeper, with the condescending tone of a schoolteacher. “There are very few things in the world that Mr. Fisk cannot acquire. This isn’t one of them. But I don’t want him to acquire it. I want ME to acquire it and I want to be the one to present it to him.”So Fisk doesn’t know? Fisk and his exhaustive net of ninjas and mobsters and everything in-between? You guess Creeper does kind of have the perfect power for overhearing crap that anyone else would never get close enough to. “What is it?” “Psht, just some – just some Egyptian thing. It’s a tablet. You didn’t hear it from me, but Mr. Fisk is a surprisingly suspicious guy. He loves this hokey crap.” “Okay.” Not what you were expecting. “And who has it?” “Guy called Mister Negative. Triad affiliate, one of the few guys in the city that doesn’t pay up to Mr. Fisk. He keeps it in one of his properties, under heavy lock & key. I’d go in myself, but my powers only account for the human element, y’know?” >[ ] “Mr. Negative sounds like a supervillain name.

You slip away into the nether of invisibility, that cold, clear sense of separation slipping over you and clothing you in comforting nothingness. You look back, and Creeper is nowhere to be seen. Figures. You hit the path as soon as possible, the intent on leaving a distinct lack of discernible footprints, and make your way out of the park, into the concrete netting of NY. You loop and dawdle a bit, knitting a haphazard, unpredictable path through the streets and alleys and even a few roofs, before coming upon a main road and stopping to consider where life is taking you. >Hunger Level: 3>[X] Go home. >[X] Root around the scar for a bit.

>[X] Stuff for Kevin.>[X] You’ve been considering a circuit breaker for you and Noriko. You check yourself quickly, a sudden image of Creeper chortling smugly while his unnoticeable self stows some kind of bug on you. You don’t find anything, but you’re glad you tried. The thought might have given you a very brief heart attack had it occurred to you back at the scar.The day is yet to die. Might as well do something to cheer you up after that loathsome encounter with Creeper. And does anything cheer you up more than rooting through trash for little gems of capriciously discarded utility? Yes. Yes, many things cheer you up more than that, but seeing as you promised Kevin you’d find some crap for him to work with and Noriko really needs something to practice on, it’s the option with the best cheer-to-pragmatism ratio. Jeez, you feel like a single parent. You hope you and your sister were never this much of a handful.You know the general area, and it doesn’t take you long to find Ericson’s (that’s Ericson the cranky junkyard general, not Ericson the phone mogul. You don’t know that second guy). It’s the largest junkyard you know to exist in this part of the city, and a fenced-off nightmare of protruding metal spires and ruined electronics.

>[X] Fence.>[X] Invisible.You know what? You spent all morning playing super tag over the rooftops with some kind of mutant secret agent girl. You think you can handle a fence. Fading out just to be on the careful side of things, you slip from visibility and make a short run up, digging your boots into the wire rungs of the fence and pushing off. You scale it ridiculously easily, practically flying over the top and coming down light on the other side. God, you are one slick motherfucker sometimes. Mister Negative isn’t going to know what didn’t hit him and actually went right past him and took all his stuff (hopefully because he’s not even in the city and you’re not going to be within a hundred yards of the guy).You barely made any noise, but you freeze up for a second anyway, letting a few seconds tick by before you’re certain that nobody’s coming to check for looters and/or annoying troublemaking kids.

You’re trudging your way between an assortment of totalled cars and what appears to be a radiator heap when something between all the folds of faded metal catches your eye. You jog up to the assorted auto-wrecks and peer inside one of the windows. Sure enough, someone’s carelessly dumped a load of electronics in there, including – you think – a circuit board. Perfect.

He must be checking out a suspicious noise or something.Snatching up the circuit board, you scurry off, making your way around the offending noises and finding your way to the front gate.

By the time you reach the outlying ruins, its 19:45, and your head is pounding. That steady little prod at the back of your brain has grown into a battering ram. You try to keep it up a little longer but you just can’t, and you pop back into visibility as you enter the scar.

You’ve pushed your powers so far that you can no longer see straight! >Congratulations! You’ve made a deal with the devil!
>>27454649store the X Point
I'll second this.
There are three types of powers you can purchase in Homeless Mutant Quest! CORE POWERS, which are the bread and butter of your powerset, SECONDARY POWERS, which are additional abilities or powers from other sets that are also appropriate to yours, and TERTIARY POWERS, which are powers only tangentially related to yours. All can be purchased and levelled, but Tertiary Powers can never be maxed out. Powers have five levels… except when they don’t.The powers currently available to you are:CORE POWERS: >Invisibility Lvl4>Enhanced Senses Lvl3SECONDARY POWERS: >Enhanced Agility Lvl1>Claws & Fangs Lvl1>Adhesive Touch Lvl1>Pheromone Manipulation Lvl1>Envenomed Touch Lvl1>Paralytic Touch Lvl1 >Vampiric Touch Lvl1 >Electrostatic Touch Lvl2>Light Armour (scales) Lvl1>Phasing Lvl1TERTIARY POWERS: >Enhanced Strength Lvl1>Healing Factor Lvl2>Medium Armour (carapace) Lvl1You have one point to spend. First level powers cost one point, second level powers cost two, and so on. The exceptions are your Core Powers, which cost one less than usual.
>>27454649bollocksthe others will worry now.also store the point
>>27454649Adhesive touch for gods sake
>>27454667As much as I want to do so for next Senses level, Adhesive Touch or (god forbid) phasing might actually be useful for next mission.

Uh just so people know instakill potential for phasing has been bumped to level 4.
>>274548573or 4 if 3 dose not get enough
>>27454864Of course it will, hell Laura probably has increased agility as well, just not very high.
>>27454864I'd assume so. Pretty sure Laura also has slightly enhanced agility, so I don't think it even depends on Parker if you want to go for it.
>>27454879As in, your potential to instantly kill someone, not its potential to instantly kill you. It can never do that.
>>27454862might as well vote for something useful. Looks like no one plans on saving up3
Rolled 2>>274548573I'll go with three then
>>27454907So you know, the vote isn't counted if you aren't using the format.
The phasecult is on the rise.
>>27454944Yeah, kind of silly since level 1 powers are pretty draining to use. Not exactly ideal for this mission if we want to use our stealth much.
>>27454944Sorry pal, looks like the Agile Alliance is winning.
>>27454979I will pay you money if you say Phasing wins.
Rolled 6>>27454986I wanted to stick with the power influencing theme and considering Parker and Laura have some form of enhanced speed it makes sense
Looks like we're going to be getting enhanced agility then? Well, I have no problem with regardless of what we get. All these powers are needed eventually.
Welp, Enhanced Agility takes it. I guess it took longer for Parker's traits to appear due to... reasons.
>>27455014i'd say that parker is rather agile actually
Rolled 18>>27455014Well we haven't seen him in awhile, so maybe that's why.and only had minimal contact compared to the rest
>>27455014When, Crusty? When? Why are people so unwilling to accept Phasing as their spiritual liege.
>>27455014Laura also has superhuman agility you know.
>>27455009We can probably do without phasing.>>27455014Radiation. Plus less contact (physical and social, both)
>>27454987I'm sorry bro.I'm sorry.Stay strong.Here, have a funny image of muties being muties.
>>27455014Lv 1 friendship whatnot.Also, we need to figure out how to keep the Creeper from offing us when we're done. We've been breaking all kinds of rules for dealing with mobsters with that guy. Hell we essentially got caught lying to his face (very, /very/ not good).
>>27455037When we meet a phaser. Or when we get predator vision/JJ Sense, wall crawling, and don't have something else we'd like to sink points in.
By the way can you give info on when you're going to do the next one and exactly what kind of feats will 1st lvl of agility allow us to do?
>>27455100Probably a bonus to agility rolls based on level.
>>27455071It's ok Crusty. I will just point out every single time we could use phasing to solve our problems
>>27455071DESPITE THE LAUGHTER I AM STILL PERPETUALLY UPSET>>27455095The fuck is up with you wall crawling and "predator," sense spegs. Phasing is a thousand times more useful than either of those.
>>27455037You know, now that I've fulfilled my promise to vote for phasing this round I'm essentially a free agent. You really aren't helping your case there.
>>27455100Next quest'll be either Monday or Thursday. Sameish time.Enhanced Agility allows for a bonus on related rolls. Some things become sort of a given that you can just do.
>>27455124That might work. Or we'll just get creative enough to solve it without phasing.>>27455133Lolno. Plus JJ-Sense is cool.>The optscri, indeed, Captcha.
>>27455168>hahahahahahah you're wrong but I won't attempt rational discourse other than say it's "cool."Yes! Well done! Truly I am moved by your words!
>>27455133Except for the little facts that adhesive touch stacks with phasing and heat vision is a passive. The problem with phasing is simply that it will put us on security footage and that will comeback to bite us. "Oh, but we hobo! No one can find us with a dumb grainy ass black and white blurred image!" 1 - Images can be enhanced. 2 - The hobo net we use for information will sell us out for 5 bucks in a second, or just let whoever's asking know we picked up a Bugle paper route if it will make the pain stop.
>>27455158Eh, feels kinda underwhelming at start. So we basically got +2 on all agility rolls?
>>27455257It might also lower the DC for most agility tests or add some written flair to our exploits (and cockups).
>>27455232>Images can be enhanced.I think you need to drop by an electronics store and see what sort of video quality you get off of security cams. (Really, really, really, really, really spectacularly bad footage. It's good enough to use to make sure a tie is tied right, though, if you stand still and get really close to it. The high grade stuff is shooting video that handycams five years ago (Or more, depending...) are shooting.tl;dr: I think that's an exaggerated concern.As to the other point, I don't recall any official information saying that we can't both invis and phase.
>>27455257Agility, acrobatics, balance, etc...It's assumed that you can perform relatively minor feats of agility without a problem. Balancing along a ledge, for example, id an auto success (whereas you get a bonus on balancing on a ledge while dodging a dude).
>>27455197Indeed, the most rational and logical argument has been had!Mostly it was summarizing how it's spidey-sense, which is crazy broken, and cheaper for us to buy being one of our core skills. Plus the fact one of the phase pusher's Pryde waifu thing. And phasing knocks out our invisibility, slightly hurts us at lvl 1, every phase pusher gives higher level examples for how useful it is when we'll probably have trouble going through a solid enough wall at first. At least Adhesive touch has wall crawling and offensive combat use.

To wit, pain is just weakness leaving the body, and we have a healing factor. The worst that'll happen is we look like we fell off a bike for a few hours.Except we won't have trouble going through a solid wall. Since that's the whole point.I think adhesive touch is a big waste, and buying abilities for "offensive combat," use isn't a great use of points, since we're not exactly combat trained. We'd get better returns going full cold war spy modo.
>>27455389It would be better if you could quote the entire thing.
>>27455304Maybe so, then again any image on film might be enough for magic (I never remember how that crap works in the Marvel Universe) to track us. And I don't know enough about this negative guy (feel free to enlighten me) to know whether he'd be using standard tech for something like this or something a bit more advanced.

>>27455405But it doesn't fit the theme of powers from people we encounter and spend time with. If we run into someone with Phasing then I'd be happy to vote for it; otherwise, nah.

Touch example was mostly an example of utility (movement, plus if we ever get into a scrap, doesn't mean we need to go murder hobo) and it has no drawback.
>>27455014We got it from Laura. Reaching Trusted clearly unlocked a second power tree of hers.
Rolled 17>>27455460Agreed, if we meet and spend some time with a phaser then I'll happily vote for it, I like the theme in which we have going
>>27455460Except that's - a - joke.It was literally a joke.>>27455438Why not wear a balaclava, sunglasses, and a jacket with a hood and a pair of gloves. If being made is your concern, that's all it takes.>>27455449One anon saying one thing is now "everyone"?
>>27455197Phasing is something that's good at higher levels. Some of us want to build a solid basis with the cheap skills before dumping many points into phasing so we don't have to rely on 1 skill. This is why I think having at least 1st lvl on adhesive touch, enhanced strenght and agility is important.
>>27455534>bundle up for the heistI'd actually be good with that aside from the hood. Don't want that cutting into our peripheral vision. Not sure we could get decent gloves in time though, but we should at least do that.
>>27455534I specifically said one anon for waifu reasons.Plus long before that I also tried to push for either adhesion or phasing for the votes, since they'd be useful for b/e. Neither of us won on that account this time, so whatever, there's always next round.
>>27455534Was it? Because I love it.>>27455507I like to think of it as due to the game of tag we played with her. Like expression of the power also has a role with us adapting to the power along with time spent with. Like with Noriko, we were at ground zero of her electrical storm and lugged her around everywhere. We need to hang out with Peter or touch him or something before I'm going to go for Adhesive touch.
>>27455538You seem to be implying that you can just skip the lower levels of phasing and get right to the good stuff...?>>27455579From a thrift store or someone's unattended suitcase.
>>27455427Happy to oblige, sorry I missed your reply for so long:Crusty Jones !!bCrh7ntIBUt Sun Sep 01 2013 23:35:16 No.26964959 Report Quoted By: >>26964977 >>26964997>>26964773Invisibility lvl2 is still chameleonic. It can be maintained for longer, however, and is more useful in motion. In addition, it negates thermal imaging.>>26964771Lvl1 Phasing allows you to very briefly turn intangible. It should be noted that it cannot be used as the same time as invisibility.>>26964829Lvl1 Healing Factor can quickly heal minor wounds and help mitigate blood loss. You can over ever reach Lvl3 Healing Factor, as it is a Tertiary Power.
>>27455633That's at level 1, I would like to point out. As we become the swolest lizard elf known to man we can have our cake and eat our hearts out.Besides. Invis to a blind spot, phase through, resume inviso-bill once we breach the compound, E-Z.
>>27455427http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Homeless%20Mutant%20QuestYou can find the previous threads from there.
>>27455633How briefly is "briefly" here? We talking minutes or seconds? It's a pretty substantial difference.
>>27455674How do we determine where a blind spot is on the opposite side of an opaque barrier?
>>27455706Because we've done our legwork and we know the position of every piece of surveillance equipment there is on the compound we're breaching.I'm not the only one who plays Shadowrun, right?
>>27455674Guess what we can afford with 1 point? It has less immediate benefits than some powers (like adhesion only needs 1 rank for us to get every use we really need out of it, so we can move on to better things). Plus >>27455706has the right point, we'd probably have to roll a straight luck roll for whether we pop out be a guard, camera, or inside an office cabinet or something.
>>27455679I presume it's seconds and it's a very fatigue-heavy ability that you can't keep spamming unless you've got training, attributes or powers to deal with that.
>>27455764We're a hobo. Not a shadowrunner. Laura might be able to do this, if she had resources our contacts, we'd be less skilled but might be able to do it with the same.I doubt we have an in with Mr. Negative's floor plan.
>>27455764...we're a hobo being dropped off at the job site with, and I'm guessing here, little to no reliable intel whatsoever. If you can put together that level of intel in less than twelve hours with what resources we have at our disposal (excluding lucking out with Laura already having cased the joint), I will find a damn hat to eat.
>>27455801I imagine it's more like a weird version of holding your breath. It starts to get weird after a while, sort of like carbon monoxide poisoning.
>>27455779The problem I have with the phasing is that at start it's mostly a combat ability used to mitigate damage. The reason why I want adhesive touch is because it's useful out of combat as well.
>>27455801That's my assumption as well.
>>27455833or, not our.>>27455852Same here. For phasing mobility, we'd have to charge at a wall and hope for the best.
>>27455834>>27455833I am going to make you eat that hat, darling anon.I'm going to need a pair of binoculars, a dollar mcnuggets order, a black trench coat, and I can figure out at least a half-assed plan AND keep it in character.
>>27455852Its "combat," utility at rank 1 is...uh. Limited, which is assuming it isn't outright useless. It's about slow, methodical movement and exploration.
I wish I was a drawfag so I could make a picture out of our elusive lizard hobo
>>27455852It also stacks stupidly well with our core build and it's a one-and-done buy in since we really don't need the more advanced adhesive abilities. That said, if we ever gain another 2 points at once, I say we boost our senses so we can actually tell if the Creeper's stalking us. Gotta keep the kiddies safe until their clean etc.
Rolled 17, 9 = 26>>27455944Quick question since we hang out with Kevin, when are we going to have that melt downer ability of his
>>27455944I thought we needed lvl 4 in order to be accurately tell if creeper is stalking us? Anyhow the 1st lvl of adhesive touch would give us the ability to take routes that normal cloakers can't follow. Pair that with heat vision and you can be pretty sure that all heat signatures following are dangerous.
>>27455944Exactly my point about AT, plus the senses are more the way to go so we can actually notice Creeper's appearance. >>27456023When we touch his skin?>>27456029Lvl 3 lets us notice the paint-smell associated with him by Laura. Lvl 4 and up would let us pinpoint him more reliably.
>>27456023Well, there's no disintegrating touch power on the list. Right now.Also it seems that people find Kevin's power icky.
>>27456023Well, there's envenoming touch, but I don't think we need that yet.
>>27456059Well, Emma Frost was impervious to his powers with her diamond form, suppose armor power could work or it could not. Depends entirely what form our armor would take.
>>27456219Your armour is biological. Light is scales, medium is bone-like carapace.
>>27456065btw are you going to make a pastebin of what different powers do different levels at some point?
>>27456065How is eliminating all organic evidence icky? It's just really problematic until you have it fully under control. Imagine if our friend Kevin, with a simple handshake, could selectively eradicate all the cancerous cells within a terminal patient's body? That's the kind of stuff he could do if he ever really got his head in the game.
>>27456243And you said both are toggleable?
>>27456252I keep meaning to do that and getting distracted by something. Work, women, realizing that my Dawnguard should really look better than they do, etc.It will happen. Eventually.
>>27456283Good luck getting his head in the game, though. And giving him the sensing powers/other bullshit needed to selectively melt cancer and not-cancer.
>>27456299Yep. Both light and medium armour can be turned on/off.
>>27456243Then poof it goes I suppose.Didn't put much hope on the idea in first place to be honest. If we get Pheromone Manipulation at high enough level we could maybe covince his body to flip the off switch on the power. Then again that probably would require lvl 5 and still is relatively far fetched. Outside that, I really have no ideas unless we can make a chinese copy of Kimura's power.
>>27456355Kimura doesn't really have "powers," per se. She's just augmented to foil X-23 and act as her handler. It's more Weapon X, less "mutie."
Rolled 19, 15 = 34>>27456458I think her invulnerable ability relates to our scale armor
