Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, and you didn’t choose the homeless mutie life, but the homeless mutie life chose you. Jesus Christ, you think you just came within spitting distance of a heart attack. You lean back heavily on the aged bannisters that stand watch over the stairwells of Sacred Tree Orphanage, invisible to the naked eye and quite glad of it. Your enhanced senses burn through your brain, little flash-sparks of faraway sound and strange scents exploding between the folds of your grey matter. Feet tapping downstairs. Sugared porridge. Medical machines chiming ponderously away in the room opposite you. Car doors slamming. Oak, elm, rosewood, wet grass. You could’ve sworn you just saw someone, but you couldn’t for the life of you tell anyone what they looked like, or how tall they were, or what they were wearing. It was almost like they were shadow made up of impressions – something imprinted in the mind rather than the eye. You groan quietly as the woman watching over the two children in the next room shuts the door. Dammit, why’re your senses playing up so bad? The mishmash of sensory crowding rustles aimlessly through your head before settling as a dull ache at the crown of your skull. You blink. Your vision is a strange, ebbing blue sheet, punctuated with grainy traces of red and violet and yellow. Beyond the door, you can see the vague outlines of the two children and their carer, pulsing and flickering like strange, upright fires. Abruptly, your vision rights itself and you’re once again seeing in the visible spectrum. Huh. >Current Funds: $102.50>Hunger Level: 3>[ ] You need to figure out what’s up with those kids.

I think we should have Kevin go back with the rest of the gang to tell them that you saw a ghost and there's two suspicious kids that you need to find out on.

Oh happy day!
>>27863470>18>excellent successYou can’t believe you’re doing this, but you honestly see no other way of getting into that room. If only your eyes hadn’t spazzed the fuck out – you’d have been able to just slide in beforehand. You nudge the door inwards again, trying to simulate a loose hinge or a stray gust of wind or something. It creaks open and you hear an infuriated huff from within. The blonde woman rears up once again, her brow thoroughly vexed, and you swing yourself aside JUST fast enough to avoid a collision as she charges out the door. “Jesus God Daniel, if that’s you…” You tune her out as she tromps angrily over the landing and slip inside. Aside from the medical machines standing watch over the two children the room is mostly bare. There’s a chair sitting in one corner, likely for whoever has to watch them, and a set of curtains that you would presume hide a window. There’s certainly nobody else in here. >[ ] Check the kids’ symptoms. Not that you’re any kind of medical guru.>[ ] Look around for anything out of place. >[ ] Check the window.

>[X] Check the kids’ symptoms. Not that you’re any kind of medical guru.>[X] Look around for anything out of place.You afford the room a cursory glance. There’s not much to look at, really. Four walls, a window, wallpaper, a buncha beds. You do notice, however, that there’s a spot near the corner on one wall where the wallpaper seems to have rotted away… or something.You furrow your brow and reach out to touch it. What is that? A burn? Some kinda stain seeping through the wood? It could be either, really, but it doesn’t feel wet or really all too crispy. As you run your fingers across the mark, you come a tiny indent, like something used to be set into the wall there. Hmm. You turn away and quickly check up on the kids. A dormant sense of unease creeps through you as you stand over them – you’re not exactly used to being the powerful figure towering over the helpless. Your experience is generally angled the opposite way. You check their pulse, finding that it’s mostly even, but their flesh is exceptionally cool to the touch – much, much lower than it should be. >Perception check>DC13>+1 modifier

>>27863813>15>adequate I guessAs you draw your hand away, something on a boy’s arm catches your eye. Carefully, you reach down and pull the sleeve of his pyjama top back. What… what is that, exactly? There are six little marks spread across his forearm, the skin clearly raised in irritation. Bruises? They look like bruises, all dark and plump and vaguely sore. It’s almost like something got tipped on him and splattered outward – there’s one big, dark blotch and five parallel lines streaking over the width of his arm. You frown and check the other kid. She doesn’t have it on her arms, but the mark is clear and present on her shoulder, arranged in the same little collection of bruises. The hell?A set of heavy footfalls crumple your train of thought. Sounds like their carer coming back.>[ ] Go find Kevin, tell him you found some shit.>[ ] Check out the corridor.>[ ] Stay there.>[ ] Write in.

So we've confirmed two thing. Ghosts and kids with bruises.
>[X] Go find Kevin, tell him you found some shit.>[X] Check out the corridor.You make yourself scarce, passing the woman on your way back across the landing. As you approach the room Kevin is supposed to be turning upside down, you catch a glimpse of a small body of children being lead across the downstairs corridor, supposedly into one of the other rooms. You guess lunch is over. You wait till they’ve very definitely passed by before opening the door and treading in.Kevin is sitting on the bed, surrounded by pamphlets and papers, reading a book set into his lap. He looks up at the door with an almost comically guilty expression, his skinny frame tautening up to bolt. He sits there in silence before hissing out:“…John? Is that you?” “Yeah.” You reply. “Cool, cool.” He sighs in relief. “This woman is crazy religious. She has a Bible on her pillow and like twenty books ABOUT the Bible under her bed. That’s pretty much the only interesting stuff in the room, though. No ghosts.” He grins and tosses the book aside.“Yeah…” You begin. “I think I may have found something.” “Oh? Like, a…” He pauses, the sheer inanity of what he’s about to say probably clotting his words somewhat. “…a ghost?” “I don’t know.” You admit. “There’s something going on, though.” “Great.” Leaving the room, you two head further into the building. You’re not really comfortable with poking around downstairs while all the kids are milling about down there. Maybe later, when everyone’s asleep, but not now. The corridor is lined by a set of long, Spartan rooms filled with bunk beds. It would seem that each kid gets a bunk, and a dresser, and not much in the way of privacy. >[ ] Look around in normalvision.>[ ] Look around in heatvision.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Look around in normalvision.>[X] Look around in heatvision.Man, this place is bleak. You strain your eyes, trying to shift back into the heat-orientated vision you slipped into earlier. It doesn’t come easy, but after a moment of vague, exploratory effort you find your sight shifting into the infrared.You pad down the hall, glancing across each room in turn. Most of the place is varying shades of blue and green, any warmer shades clinging to the radiators lodged into the corners. As you pass by one of the rooms, a mass of colder, brighter blues catches your attention and for a moment your jaw falls slack. You tiptoe in. One of the beds is covered – absolutely fucking covered – in the mark on the kids. It’s everywhere. The sheets, the frame, the pillow… it’s even etched across the wall beside it, not in marker or crayon or any kind of stain, but in selectively cold spots. You shake your head, banishing your thermal vision. To the naked eye, the place looks totally normal. You resolve to take a look around with your mundane senses. >Roll Investigation>DC16>+4 modifier

>>27864514>not good enough boy>you get sensory information but not investigative infoYou root around, searching for any physical indicator of what the shit is going on, passing from room to room to room, but you discover nothing with your normal senses.On a whim, you occasionally shift into the infrared, confirming that there is a second bed in the same state as the other. It doesn’t take any particular feats of gymnastics to conjure up a vague idea of whom they would generally house. Interestingly, you also find the mark in one, isolated incidence upon the wall behind a third bed. Which doesn’t exactly fill you with much hope for the future. Returning to Kevin, you abstain from relating what you’ve found immediately, instead informing him that you’ve checked the rooms pretty thoroughly. >[ ] Tell him what you found.>[ ] Head downstairs. >[ ] Split up, you search [insert] while Kevin searches [insert]. >[ ] Write in.Next post'll be a little late.

>>27864691I can see it being awkward to use at level 1( this is mostly circumvented by strength though), but by level 2 and maybe 3 we can hang any where without a care.
>>27864668>[X] Tell him what you found.>"Hey Kev, you think Laura might find more than us?"
>>27864750I wish that higher levels would make it go from simple sticking to walls to minor gravity manipulation. Sort of like our invisibility went from chameleon changing colors to actually bending light.
>>27864835Yeah honestly i can't see it being put past level 3 and that is a stretch since level 2 covers the basic needs of the power, and also already having strength hurts the chances of even needing level 2 adhesive touch.
>>27864835Like making a surface walkable as if it were regular ground to anybody on lvl 5?
>>27864668Crusty does the hulk and tony stark exist in this world?
>>27864602Phasing level 1 isn't that bad. It is more useful than the Touch powers at the very least: Paralytic Touch only gets useful at Level 3Envenomed Touch hurts people instead of knocking them out, and is thus horrible for stealthVampiric Touch is slow as hell at level 1 and only gives back "Stamina" instead of health until Level 3.Basically, at Level 1-2 Electrostatic Touch can stand in easily for every other Touch power.Phasing can at the very least get you through walls (a few seconds of phasing is enough for that), it can't kill you through telefragging and it makes you able to escape restraints. And hey, if you are a real badass with good reflexes you might even be able to use it to defend from gunfire! Granted, Armor is better at this, but if we manage to get Phasing to three it is flat out better than any armor we can get at defense.

>[X] Tell him what you found.“Hey, Kevin…?” “Yeah?” He responds, no longer making an attempt at approximating eye contact with you. You’re not sure how much of this makes sense. Maybe it’ll come together when you pass it along to someone else. Maybe it’s something totally mundane that you’ve overlooked, like… a really bad flu, or something. That leaves freaky cold sweat marks everywhere. Yeah. “What would you say if I told you there are all these, um…” How best to describe it?” “…kinda cold areas sorta just dotted around the place?” He glares at thin air.“You mean cold spots? You’ve found cold spots all over the place?” “Yeah…” “Well. I guess that’s not creepy at all.” You watch him glance from door to door.

While adhesive touch grants diminishing returns, I don't really mind it as some mutant powers just happen to be like that.
>[X] Go downstairs.>[X] Write in.You head to the stairs, reaching out with your senses. There’s nobody else on the top floor now, just you and Kevin – and, you guess, the two sleeping kids, though they barely make any kind of impression on your radar. You hear occasionally-spoiled silence downstairs – the occasional yelp, the occasional raised voice. Probably classes of some kind. “So, uh… are you, like, religious?” Says Kevin, in hushed town. You frown invisibly. “I mean, do you believe in…” “G-g-g-ghosts?” You Scoobify your voice as much as possible, chuckling a little. Apparently Kevin is just about aware enough of your position to nudge you playfully. “Dude. But yeah, I guess so.” You think back. God has been sort of a non-issue for the last few years. “I dunno.” You conclude on, rather lamely. “My family was mostly Catholic, but we were pretty casual about it. I guess I’m supposed to believe in Purgatory or something, maybe. What about you?” He shrugs. “Never really given it much thought. My dad was Christian, but he never really… I’ve never read the Bible or anything.” You progress down the stairs in silence. There’s no longer any noise emanating from the doorway to the right, which tells you that lunch is indeed through with. The large oak doors parallel to it is shut tight. You could probably leave via the front from here. >[ ] Leave.>[ ] Check out the door on the right.>[ ] Check out the lunch hall.>[ ] “Hey, I don’t mean to be rude or anything, but… I kinda keep hearing you refer to your dad in past tense.

>>27865578Seconding the fuck out of this, especially the part about NOT asking Kevin what happened to his dad. Given our sister/family issues I'm pretty sure JJ can figure out that is going to be a touchy subject to say the least.

>>27865834Not the Anon you're responding to, but I do actually like the human porcupine scheme over shooting claws. I tend to think reloading the latter option ought to be a function of our healing factor rather than native to the Claws&Fangs power set.
>>27865672Are we positive she isn't dead? I though we were just refusing to believe otherwise, which is very different from actually knowing that Joyce is still alive.
>>27865834This would actually make claws better in my opinion with the only bad upgrades being level 2 and 5(if we don't have that many powers).
>>27865834>Can make spikes come out of other places
>>27865544Yea, the claws are relatively crappy ability. 1st level is pretty much all you need from it as the two primary purposes we'd have to them are fulfilled. 1. Intimidation tool.2. Capability to cut ourselves out of ropes or spiderweb or whatever even if we're disarmed. As an emergency close combat tool, they're very poor in comparison to paralyzing touch, lightning touch and vampiric touch. ESPECIALLY vampiric touch. That's why I think that the ability to shoot your claws ought to be moved down a bit to lvl 2, meaning that we essentially get a weak ranged weapon at that point as our claws are rather small and don't do that much damage until they're upgraded. I just think that in the sense of progression it would be better to be somewhere along these lines. Level 1. Small claws/fangsLevel 2. Claws can be fired, but due to their small size, they aren't exactly lethal unless you hit an artery or something. Level 3. Claws are now larger and sharper, thus making them lethal against unarmored opponents.Level 4. Getting hit by a claw is roughly equivalent to being hit by a crossbow, goes through standard bulletproof vests.Level 5. Claws work as conduits to abilities.

It’s not like he was being particularly subtle about it. Afterlife this, spiritual that, ghosts religion etc. “Look, I know what it’s like to lose someone, if you need to talk about it.” A moment of awkward silence passes while he looks not-quite-at-you. Eventually, he smiles. “Talking to you about this kind of stuff while you’re invisible is… really, really weird.” “…Sorry.” Edging open the front door, you leave in silence, Kevin casting a quick glance backward to make sure that nobody sees you go. From the outside, you just look like a pair of scrawny, dirty grunge teens, so you drop your invisibility. Which is a relief, honestly, because you’ve been holding it for quite some time and aren’t particularly up for a repeat of the last time you tried to really push it to the limit.

>[X] Tell everyone what’s up.You approach the group and join them in their being of the inconspicuous. Which seems to mostly involve standing in a sort of semi-circle and not saying much. Laura says something to Noriko as you get close, and she glances around before fixing her eyes on you. Caught your scent, you guess.“So…?” Asks Noriko, smiling broadly. You notice that the SUV parked beside them has a slight radio problem, in that its radio has totally melted all over the place. You and Kevin glance at each other.“Err… there is definitely some weird shit going on in there.” “I told you so.” Injects Layla, her tone pretty much as grating and pointed as you’d expected. Noriko widens her eyes. “What, really? Like… ghost stuff?” “I… I don’t really know.” You admit. Between you and Kevin, a good enough sequence of events is painted out for them, prompting a few ‘ooh’s and ‘aaah’s, primarily from Noriko. Once it’s all sunk in, Laura speaks up, staring at you from the back of the group. “If you don’t know what is happening, what do you think is happening?” >[ ] INSERT THEORY.>what does JJ think of this shit?>>27866148He was just a super annoying character.
>>27866311>>27866274>>27865972maybe make this a combo of claws&Fangs + Healing Factor?
>>27866372Mystic Marvel is very much in the closest.>>27866410People know about Skrulls, due them trying to invade like twice.
>>27866410I think aliens were mentioned in conjunction with The Scar (the ruin zone we live in), but I don't remember any real magic references. Just Mutants, Aliens and SCIENCE! type stuff.
>>27866420a Mutant or something is doing something to kids. Do you know anything about those two kids in comas Layla?"
>>27866420>>[ ] INSERT THEORY.I think someone is pulling telepathic dickery
>>27866415Oh, sure. I will say that you've kind of unlocked something that allows stuff a little like this already, via the choices you've made.
>>27866420"Maybe it's some asshole mutant trying to scare little kids? Maybe it's some kind of psychic manifestation of the two kids apparently in comas? Maybe it's a ghost? I'm really not sure."
>>27866420>"There's a bunch of cold spots in the shape of the bruises on these kids.">"Also I can see temperatures now, so that's a thing."My plan is to crowd-source a theory because I don't want to say it's the work of ectoplasmic Americans (ghosts).
>>27866473>psychic manifestation of the two kids apparently in comasThat ain't a bad theory. Maybe those bruises are their mutant symbol things. Like their version of our eyes.
>>27866420>A mutant, alien or...something like a vampire I guess...is in there. Look, I know this is going to sound really weird, but did you ever read Dracula? Me neither, caught a kids tv version though and if you drop the blood sucking for just pulling life force out of kids through touch, it looks disturbingly similar.
>>27866420Evil government experiment. It's the Marvel universe. When in doubt, assume evil government experiment. Hell, we've got an evil government experiment in our party. We're kind of an evil government experiment. The orphanage is run by the government, right? QED.
>>27866420Theories:Psychic mutant kids in a coma messing with the minds of everyone in the building.Superhuman/Supernatural person/entity stuck outside of normal space and time trying to suck energy out of kids, enough to stabile in the physical world.Old man Henderson in a rubber mask trying to spook everyone out of the house so he can claim a prohibition era stack of old bills and rare booze boarded up in the basement, and he would have gotten away with it, too if not for us meddling kids. Laura, it's a joke about an old cartoon about kids who solved fake ghost mysteries.Also it might actually be a ghost, we need to do reasearch on the building. This means the library and public records...which are places we need to keep you guys (Kev and Nori) away from the computers and the organic paper.
>>27866420> Whatever it is, it has to do with those two kids in a coma covered by cold spots, and the one bed that was also covered in them. I am guessing the kid in the bed might have some power that sucks out energy from what it touches. Doesn't explain the guy i saw, but its the best theory i have.>Layla, do you know the two kids in a coma? Or who the bed covered in cold spots belonged to?
>>27866420"Could be one of those comatose kids got telepathy or astral projection or something.""Anyhow, I bet there's some form of mutant dickery about.""There's also supposed to be some 'experts' coming, so I think we should take a look at what kind of folk they are."
>>27866553This. Given their general state of being, maybe something is taking their life force? somekinda vampire? KARL LYCOS! ITS MOTHERFUCKING KARL LYCOS! maybe. idontreallyknow.
>>27866420Before we give a theory, ask Layla about that bed covered in cold marks. We need to see if it belongs to a recent victim (one of the coma kids) or a potential perpetrator.
>>27866420Crusty, did each set of those weird marks correspond to a palm, four fingers and a thumb?
Is JJ a highschool drop out or did he never go?
>>27866739He was on the run by then.
You scratch the back of your head. “I dunno… I was thinking it was a telepath at first, but those cold spots were very real.” “Telepathy is often accompanied by telekinesis.” Notes Laura. “A skilled telekinetic could be capable of altering temperature.” “Okay. Maybe it’s the kids, then? Maybe they… double up or something?” You turn to Layla. “Those two I saw back there, are they related?” She shakes her head. “When I was there, it was just one. He’s called Alex. I don’t think he has a sister or nothing.” She squirms a little and rubs her arms, glancing back over her shoulder at the building. “He was in the same room as me. The face in the dark used to look straight at him at night. Then one day he just didn’t wake up.” Well, that’s… exceptionally fucking eerie. Still, whatever this thing is seems to have started with this kid, and spread out from there. “Maybe…” Noriko speaks up, looking at the floor and kind of flinching slightly, as if she’s saying something vaguely obscene. “Maybe he’s just awakened as a mutant, and he can, like, walk out of his body or something? Maybe he was looking at himself? He could be stuck out there, trying to get people to notice him.” >[ ] “Well, they’ve got some ‘experts’ coming in later, so I’d like to stick around for that.”>[ ] “That doesn’t account for the second kid.”>[ ] Write in.
>>27866847>>[ ] “That doesn’t account for the second kid.”

>>27866847>[ ] “That doesn’t account for the second kid.”
>>27866470Wait we're an invisible electric hobo porcupine elf lizard. Since when? I'm pretty sure I would have noticed something like this.

>>27866847So are claws&fangs getting changed?
Maybe we could go get Peter and bring him in on this?Kid might like a story about this.
>>27866847> that doesn't account for the second kidAlso, did we just find Havok?As much as I'd like to get to the bottom of this, I'm fine with us just not sending Layla home and noping out for now. Catching the food thief is another priority too...
>>27866959A little meta gamey don't you think? He's just an intern and we don't know in character that's he Batman
>>27866847If Nori's already melting car radios, it's time to get her home.
>>27866847>[ ] “That doesn’t account for the second kid.”There's also the fact that there was a mark by a third bed. Which is probably Layla's.
>>27866983But we may need a dispensable meat-shield.
>>27866983Remind me what Peter does at the Bugle, since my plan might have some holes in it.
>>27866847"By the way, do you happen to know a dude called David?""When I opened the door when invisible, she thought that there was a dude called David in there." "Also, did the face look like *give description of the dude who you saw at the end of last thread*
>>27867004Unpaid intern. Mainly we support and assorted bitchwork I think.
>>27867004He takes pictures of insect men. Although he said that he is more like a glorified intern.
>>27867025>>27867043Then ignore my plan, since I was gonna suggest he do an article or some shit.Stupid idea.
>>27867071The days of boy reporters are long gone
>>27867071Yea, no he doesn't actually write anything. I mean I'm not particularily well versed with comics, but I'm pretty sure Parker was strictly a photographer. I tried to get into comics at one point, but the fact that they swapped continuities so often started confusing me.
>>27867016Yes. This too. We need more info about that dude, too many guys can disappear around here. That was our first shtick.
>>27867103Technically, Billy is Anchoring there, not reporting.
>>27867128You're right! What a scoop!
>[X] “Well, they’ve got some ‘experts’ coming in later, so I’d like to stick around for that.”>[X] “That doesn’t account for the second kid.”“Good idea, Noriko.” Seriously. You don’t think you’d have thought of that. You’re pretty sure there’s a name for whatever she’s talking about, too, but… it doesn’t quite spring to mind. Eldritch emanation? Arcane projection? Something projection.There is one problem, however.“It doesn’t account for the second kid, though.” “Well, then…” She’s raised her voice a little now. “Maybe he dragged her out? You said those marks were like, four lines”– “Five lines.” You correct.“Okay, five lines, and then a big blotch? Kinda like this?” She traces a vague image into the air. It’s actually… surprisingly accurate, kinda. Like, she’s sorta getting the right shape. “Yeah. You’re… really close, actually. How’d you guess?” “John…” She smiles a little nervously. “I just drew out a handprint.” You feel your eyes widen in surprise. Beside you, Layla fidgets uncomfortably. How? How the hell did you miss that?“…Well, they’ve apparently go some kind of experts turning up later. And I think I want to be here when that happens.” -------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 17: END>Congratulations! You’ve earned an X-Point!

>>27867142Thirded.This >>27867122 is seconding without outright saying that. It was me
>>27866928As I said in the last thread, the power chart won't remain the same forever. It'll change based on what you've already picked.>>27866951Maybe.
>>27867189>phasing. now.>it is overdue.
>>27867189Based Crusty! All glory to the hypno-mutie!
We should bank so we just so we can jump to phasing 2 faster
>>27867219WE MUST NOT BREAK THE CODE!
>>27867189Good to know I wasn't spam responding "it's a handprint, right?" for nothing...(mope)
>>27867198Missed these. All good questions. I'll take all of them into account in the next thread.
Rolled 96>>27867189phasingpleasepleaseits been so long
>>27867219The second everyone went behind the chameleon theory was the second you guys lost.
>>27867189Adhesive touch so long as it sticks with the theme.
>>27867235How would that make it any faster? You'd still have to get 1st level before getting the 2nd.
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 Lvl4SECONDARY POWERS: >Enhanced Agility Lvl2>Claws & Fangs Lvl2>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 Lvl2>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.
How about we do get Parker in on this?He's a mutant (we think), and he's friendly to us.Might need the help.
>>27867219>>27867244Why the fuck not? I'll vote for it.
>>27867224Also advocating Adhesion (and alliterating).That or bank it.
Rolled 97>>27867259phasing please phasing please we must have itwe have encountered ghost. Phasing is yes?

>>27867259[X]phasingGuys, phasing makes us incorporeal. Ghosts are incorporeal. If we get phasingwe can grab tthe ghost
>>27867296We mustn't break the codeArmor, Adhesive touch or Vampiric TouchVoting for spiderlizard.
>>27867259Voting for phasingPls crusty let the phasefriends win
>>27867266We have no idea what he's capable of and I don't think we can in good conscious put him in a situation where he might get outed since that will ruin his life. Smart kid suddenly can't go to school, college, get a really job, take the subway...we are not turning Parker into a Hobo. That would be really petty on our part.
>>27867325We met a ghost, we phasebros now.
>>27867312Also makes for a good excuse to not get shot later. Which we will eventually get shot.>>27867325Oh, shut up. The power chameleon idea was gay before, it's still gay now.
>>27867312No we can't because 1st level phasing is so brief.
>>27867335I think we should at least ask.
>>27867276Huh. We did find ghosts. Chameleon Code is still valid.I vote phasing. Also awesome roll.
>>27867259phasebros. WatchWe are winningWe may have a chance
>>27867333You guys have been losing for 16 threads.>>27867259Banking.Level two options(if we bank)>HEALING FACTORQuicker healing(all around good)>ELECTROSTATIC TOUCH Stronger touch.(basically a stronger taser which isn't bad.)>ENHANCED AGILITYWe can actually walk on a rope with out rolling now.>CLAWS & FANGS Considered the most useless level 2 ability.>ENHANCED STRENGTHExtra strength is always good.Level 3 options( like hell we will ever get this far.)>INVISIBILITYYou can now make people invisible >ENHANCED SENSES Better senses around and now we can "find" the creeper.>Phasing 1 &2 The only real option for phasing to ever get picked in a timely manner.
>>27867338Gay is just another word for fabulous.
>>27867325The eldritch whatever may very well qualify us for phasing, either directly or via Law of Contaigion with the comatose kids and/or Layla. Just throwing that out there.
>>27867341Then we punch the ghost. Long enough for that, right?
>>27867361well today is our dayPHASEBROS, UNITE
>>27867338Phasing 1 will likely not keep us from getting shot since its duration is so damn brief. Unless, I admit, the person shooting us is using flintlock weaponry.
>>27867259Banking, i want to make other people invisible
Numbered voting time. Post,>1 to Bank>2 for Adhesive Touch>3 for PhasingNow, remember, post only the number. Greentext means vote disregarded. Rolls means vote disregarded. Anything other than the number means vote disregarded.
>>27867386Getting shot is much more bief than fucking phasing, ah shit a guns being pointed at me better phase for 100x the amount of time it takes for the bullet to hit me.
>>27867389todays the day phasebro's I can feel it.
>>27867374Not really. We'd have to match phase with said ghosts, which probably would take a bit linger than a handful of seconds. In all likelihood we'd just phase through the ghosts anyway, since they are completely non physical whereas we'd still be physical, just out of phase with most other matter.
>>27867458Might want to actually link to the post.>>27867389
>>27867452If the ghost was completely non-physical, it wouldn't be able to pull a poltergeist.
>>27867458you need to link bro.Just to make sure
>>27867480He says only to post the number.
>>27867449There's only 1 guy on the phasebro side that actually made a valid vote. You have to put the number and nothing else.
>>27867480You as well>>27867479>>27867389
>>27867496If that was true then every vote cept yours is wrong.
>>27867498No, don't let them catch on!
>>27867487It could if it has telekinesis.
>>27867517In some previous thread he got annoyed that peeps voted by linking the post, so I guess I win.
>>27867545plsplspls be phasing
>>27867568Well, only 2 legitimate votes on phasing side. There's more legitimate votes on the adhesive side.
>>27867545phasebro's it's been an honor regardless of the outcome
Huh. I think we have a draw between Banking and Phasing.
Rolled 1>>278675831 for Phasing2 for Banking

>>27867594Nah, I don't do things that way. Imma go over and count votes that don't include the quote, since technically that's what I want.Tallyan again, I guess.

>>27867594I abide the dice, phasefag win this day lads.
>>27867621Yes. But nobody seems to realize it, so I usually let it slide. Seeing as we have a tie otherwise, imma recount only the non-linked posts.
Welp, I guess were a ghostlizard now.
>>27867640No, JJ has been fueled by their delicious tears!
>>27867657When in doubt, bank for now!
>>27867667What are you doing?
>>27867644Wait, so don't link votes or do?
>>27867644I would recommend saying that linked votes don't count next time
>>27867683Don't.Also, seriously everyone, voting's done.
>>27867687SameOtherwise you can vote 2 times by having 1 of both with link and one without it.
linking the votes just seems like common senseeasier to tally, you don't even need to scroll
>>27867708George Bush didn't become president with that attitude
>>27867708Pretty sure we're still tied, so we'll probably have another round of voting soon...
I can't believe this shit.Seriously, I had to go over it several times. But upon recounting the votes that follow the law to the letter, Adhesive Touch takes it. With a measly three votes.
>>27867736Terrible analogy phasebro
>>27867739nowhywelpnext time I guess
>>27867739Yes reading comprehension has won the day!
>>27867739YEEEESSSSS!Delicious phasebro tears!
>>27867739BUSH JUNIOR TAKES THE PRESIDENCY!
>>27867687Yeah, I'll make a note of it next time.I usually think that 'anything but the number' is pretty absolute... but I guess not.
>>27867739I thought so, and so I laugh ahahahaha
>>27867739Hell yeah. We noble gecko man now
>>27867739I would contest that the law is not the law but poorly explained guidelines
>>27867739Ahhhahahahahaha! YES! We did it guys! We finally did it!>Hurrah youzockThat's right Captcha! Wait...I what now?
>>27867739CrustyCrusty have mercyThe dice gods evenWell fuck
>>27867739why the fuck would we even need adhesive touch
>>27867766>I usually think that 'anything but the number' is pretty absolute...It usually includes the quotes too
>>27867787So we can stick to things, duh.
>>27867759Don't worry phasebros. After we actually see the ghost do some ghosty things, I'll totally vote for you.
>>27867787>why the fuck would we even need adhesive touchThat's what the people wanted. Otherwise, why would they vote for it?
>>27867739And there was much rejoicing.Coincidentally, now would be a lovely time to start mixing up the powers list. No?
>>27867739Well, we all learned something here today.don't link, no matte how sensible it seems.sticking walls sounds lizardy enough
>>27867739Well phasebros, we do get closer and closer each timeLast time we lost by 3ishNow oneNext time.... well we will see
>>27867787so we can get people sticky and cause phasefags to cry tears
>>27867787It's useful as hell for a stealthed character since it doesn't cancel our invisibility.
>>27867787In a city. Climbing is always useful. There's a wall, gate, the stairs are out, just climb it. We can stealth over people, we can hold onto stuff easier while we run away, etc. just gotta open your mind to the possibilities.
>>27867789I usually allow it because like 90% just do the quoting anyhow, despite me saying I'd rather they didn't in previous threads.I'm only following the absolute letter of the law because we had a tie otherwise, and I don't like random rolls. Next time I'll make it even more abundantly clear that NUMBER ONLY OOOONLY.
>>27867739NoooooooooooWell, we did just meet spiderman, when we actually find a ghost we can get it.
>>27867787Because we can walk on walls and ceilings.
>>27867822Honestly I vote against phasing because phasebros sounds autistic as fuck.
>>27867837crusty make that damn ghost do ghost shitThen maybe we will have a chance
>>27867825So people are actually voting for other options just out of principle so phaseing doesn't win?Huh. This is 4chan i guess.
>>27867787we won't know untill it comes up.
>>27867837Any clue as to when you will give us a new power list?
>>27867848>because phasebros sounds autistic as fuck.Yeah, the name is really faggy.
>>27867839You do realize that ghosts aren't phasers, right?
>>27867839Green goes like"That looks really nifty, I wonder if I can get me some of that."and then green was the ghosts.
>>27867810Nah man, I can't summon that kind of raw evil. Phasebros deserve a few more shots. They have heart, man. There is a point at which you can gain no more x-points till the end of a chapter, though (you're not there yet, don't worry).
>>27867837Crusty, would acquiring ghost powers mean we could phase or would we end up with astral projection?
>>27867908Crusty I can honestly say this is the one quest that gets me mad over fucking power choices. How did you do it, man?
>>27867865Ghosts may not be phasers, but it's close enough to qualify, I'd say.
>>27867908>limited number of x-points available before the end of the chapter.Guys, we might seriously need to think about upgrading our healing factor or taser hands next. Or shoot for invis 4.
>>27867947>Guys, we might seriously need to think about upgrading our healing factor or taser hands next. Or shoot for invis 4.But muh phasing!
>>27867856I like the power chameleon idea. It's been thematic and fun. We meet kitty pride or this ghost thing actually has a walk through walls power then I'll jump on the phase bandwagon but untill such a time i vote to bank or keep up the theme.
>>27867947Invis 4 or bump up to Spider sense level.
>>27867865They kind of are intangible, out of phase with the real world. Its not quite the same phasing as the one we can buy, but its about as close as our claws are to Lauras titanium claws.
>>27867947Or, you knowphasingbecause invisibility, adhesive hands and phasing is the perfect stealth combo
>>27867933He doesn't. You do it to yourself anon.Because your the only one here
>>27867947Tazer hands lvl 2 should be plenty lethal. It's strong enough to leave burns and even defibillator doesn't leave burns.
>>27867989well this is 4chan, no one here is real
>>27867859You have to reach a pivotal point, overcoming something holding you back.>>27867933Welp, I mostly just tried to include a bunch of 'big' powers that could serve as the lynchpin for progression and a bunch of 'additional' powers that give your direction more flavour and supplement your more substantial choices. It's natural that certain powers would cause division, since their inclusion changes the direction you guys are going in pretty massively.
>>27868019a-and-and will phasing go?
>>27868050phasing will forever live on in our hearts
>>27868050>>27868077Then it'll drop out and fall.'Cause it's phasing.Tss tss
>>27868048Maybe then we can have heat vision.
>>27868077so lets rip out our heart and take phasing out it if phasing goesBrilliant backup, I like it!
>>27868077Don't worry friend, now only the bankers stand against us.
>>27867988The only problem I have with phasing is its incompatibility with our invisibility. Find a way to combine it with our camo instead of canceling it and you'll have my support.
>>27868077Much like sniper island.So, I just had a thought.Crusty, does the Unlimited Class Wrestling League exist yet? If so, what are their policies on Mutants? Are superhuman wrestlers of any stripe welcome, or just mutates/cyborgs only?
>>27868114>only the bankers stand against us.
>>27868135Its incompatible? Why?>>27868148Quick, someone call /pol/!
>>27868050Some things will go. Some things will change.>>27868139>Crusty, does the Unlimited Class Wrestling League exist yet?Nah. This universe is a little too paranoid and leery of superhumans for that. Also, governments tend to dislike the idea of commercial enterprises gathering up lots of superhumans. Kinda sets them on edge.
>>27868139>are mutants welcomeMutants are never welcome
>>27867969I agree with this
We have lvl 3 senseThis means we can roll if peter really is deadpool when we next meet him.
>>27868163>incompatible? Why?Ask OP.
>>27868163using phasing turns off the invisibility
>>27868190So, Crusty, been hearing all this stuff about how phasing is incompatible with invisibility. This true?
>>27867969Yes, we must place our X-points in the BANK.
don't forget to Archive Crusty.
>>27868268Yea it was said pretty much in the first threads, which is the reason we didn't pick it. You can't phase while you're invisible or vice versa. This is why I favoured wallclimbing over phasing.
>>278682682nd thread brohttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26958491/
Goddamnit, I got to my lab meeting for an hour or two and I miss out on all the votes
>>27868268It's not incompatible. You can have both powers.You just can't phase while invisible, or turn invisible while phased.
>>27868346It's ok, we parker now.
>>27868344>>27868316>>27868250This shit aint gonna stop the phasefriendsalso, captcha says ndlyywou shekelsCoincidence? I think not.
>>27868374Actually, I was going to vote for banking
>>27868371I think we mean incompatible as in "can't have both on at once". Since we can buy it, we just haven't for the given reason.
>>27868371Sorry, I used the word 'incompatible' because JJ is unable to use both at the same time. You're right that it's probably caused some confusion, but I have no idea what else to call powers whose active use is mutually exclusive.
>>27868395Surely this is a sign
>>27868458don't forget the claws
>>27868400Wren! Why we're you here Wren?! We needed you!But in all seriousness I hope the lab meeting went well and that you've returned to us well fed.
>>27868400I also missed the vote. I would have gone for sticky feet...
>>27868487Yeah, Monday games are going to suck for me, because It seems like I'm just not going to be around for votes. Last monday was just luck that the meeting ended early. Too bad.Anyways, i'm gonna get dinner after this.
>>27868190But...but mah Poundcakes.....*does google research* why the hell did they slim down the closest thing the Grapplers had to a plus sized amazon vixen and stick her still amazingly muscled ass in a spiked gimp suit? Why? That niche was already filled!
>>27867016I meant to say daniel, you know, the names said on the last thread when the woman was wondering about the moving door.
>>27868565Any chance you'd be willing to confirm that phasers can't use their abilities to touch ectoplasm?
>>27868824I think at a very high level there was a shot at matching other phasing wavelengths. Not sure how that effects ghosts, cause magic and shit.
>>27868923Crusty said there was a chance of matching wavelengths at every level, it just gets more feasible at higher levels.
>>27868824Phasing is achieved, like many of JJ's powers, by manipulating his electron structure. He's still a material being, just not interacting with the world the same way as other objects are. He can't touch ectoplasm.
I bet Laura is going to get more and more suspicious about the fact that we just keep pulling abilities out of our ass as we go along. Develope basic healing factor: "I suppose that's common enough."Develope electricity touch: "Huh, curious"Develope enhanced agility: "That's pretty nice."BAM! CLAWS AND STRENGHT ON SAME DAY: "Well this is HIGHLY unusual."BAM! HEAT VISION AND WALLCRAWLING ON SAME DAY: "HOW THE HELL DO YOU DO THAT?"
>>27868982Thank you Crusty.
>>27868985But for Laura it will be neutral face, neutral face, eyebrow raised, eyebrow twitching, and her finally saying something
>>27869052Well, considering that she actually did say something after we developed super strength and claws...I worry that she might start trying Science on us. Like how she wanted to cut off that lizardboy's arm after the Hell arc.
>>27869052Gotta catch them all?
>>27868985"I don't know, it just keeps happeing!"
>>27869400"I told about them powers man"
>>27868985Next we pick phasing and vampirism"JJ, You have a problem""I CAN QUIT WHENEVER I WANT!"
