Peter Parker Quest, Issue 24>Rules: http://pastebin.com/w5G3aG3Y>Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/q1AqTT5h>My twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOp>Archives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Peter%20Parker%20Quest>Story Arc database: http://pastebin.com/fR0Z1SNKThe morning comes as you wake up, Felicia resting on your lap. As you wake, so does she, smiling up at you. But, there’s things to do today so you help Felicia fix breakfast and eat with her before she goes to curl up in her bed for a while more. You, meanwhile, have a curse to break.Stephen Strange, the TV expert on magic is somewhere in the area. Gwen’s also probably working on Felicia’s DNA, and there’s also the old, creepy Asian man you bought the statue from.>[ ] Go out as Spider-man, time to hunt down an old, creepy Asian man>[ ] Go out on foot after looking up where Stephen Strange is at, maybe he’ll help Peter Parker?>[ ] Call Gwen, see if there’s any results yet>[ ] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?>[ ]Write in
>>28254991>Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?We're kind of a celebrity, and known to be a good dude.Plus maybe we'll have a picture of ourselves not in that horrible yellow thing.
Previously, on PPQ...>>28254991>>[ ] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?
>>28254991As Saturday dawns, let's untangle ourselves from Felicia and do some research on Doctor Strange. No doubt his enthusiastic fans already know what hotel he is staying at and which room he is likely to be in. We should familiarize ourselves with his appearance. Pack a backpack with our spectacular outfit, and instruct Felicia to bring her domino mask....then drift off a moment thinking of Cat Felicia in her black catsuit with the white trim. Acquire a small water pistol to knock her out of instinct mode, and a laser pointer. Conversely, maybe strange will help your friendly neighborhood spider man
>>28254991>[ ] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?
>>28255036That's... yeah that's pretty much how it went down.
>>28254991>[ ] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?'ere we go
>>28255047>taking Felicia outsideNo
>>28254991>>[ ] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?Make sure we take the statue base with us. Also did Felicia get any new visible changes overnight?
>>28254991Can we go after the asian dude as Peter Parker first? Would make more sense and give us a baseline before we bother Steve.
>>28255091Then we don't. The research suggestion stands.
>>28255158Logically it's probably a better idea, but I want to see Strange first and hopefully see some magic. Maybe he'll help us find the Asian guy later or something.
>>28254991>[X] Go see this Strange guy as Peter Parker, but bring our Spider-Man costume with us as a back up.
>>28254991>[x] Maybe Strange will help out your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?
>>28255158He was a creepy old Chinese guy running a roadside stall.Do you honestly expect him to still be around?
>>28254991>>[ ] Call Gwen, see if there’s any results yet
>>28255244If I know my cliches, he's vanished never to be found. Until the sequel, anyway.
>>28255158If i remember correctly the asian dude literately disappear after buying the cat statue from him, so with out magic there is probably no way of finding him.
>>28255292>>28255244Since it's close to her apartment, it will not take much time to check.
>>28255312Fiiiiiiine.We probably shouldn't leave her place as Spider-Man anyway I guess.
>>28254991>It's been about 20 min, so I'll get to writing
>>28255312Fine. As long as you're willing to spend the money we saved not buying the scarf on a cab from the mall to Strange's show after we fail to find the place again.
>>28255346Right. We don't want her to die.gif
>>28255340>By the way, could you roll me a perception check?>1d20+4>Dc is 18
Rolled 3 + 4>>28255392
Rolled 6 + 4>>28255392Lets-a go!
Rolled 11 + 4>>28255392Lovely...
Rolled 7 + 4>>28255392
Rolled 16 + 4>>28255392
Rolled 5 + 4>>28255392
>>28254991What does Skilled Engineer mean outside of game mechanics? Do we not need to go to College/University since we're already good enough to invent things over the course of a week?
>>28255413...He takes the best from the first five, right?
>>28255392I'm willing to spec point this because it's probably important or Felicia related
>>28255425Outside of game mechanics? Basically, Peter doesn't really need to go to college to know how to make things if he knows the sciences behind them. HOWEVER, good luck getting anyone to listen to him without a degree- He doesn't have the pedigree of someone like Tony Stark, after all.
>>28255427First three, sadly. We failed.
>>28255474Time for a Spectacular point
>>28255442I guess we could, the sooner we solve this problem the sooner we can make some progress on the whole Hobgoblin/Gwen's stalker/Maximum Carnage things.We have a lot of irons in the fire.
>>28255472>PedigreeTony Stark confirmed for secret werewolf
>>28255408>>28255409>>28255411Sadly, the roll is failed. I will begin writing in a few moments, unless you'd like to SP things
>>28255472I'm willing to be disregarded by most people if it means we get more free time later since we won't have to go to school. Besides we can always invent more stuff for a reputation or money. I really want us to go the biotech route though.
Rolled 10 + 4>>28255505>SPNo, we need these to stay alive
>>28255505Yeah, I'll go along with it.
>>28255505I want to spec point it
>>28255505Sure, I'll always jump on an OP prompt.
>>28255505Voting yes for Spectacular Point usage.
>>28255496We'll never expose it. Given his son's condition, Jameson won't publish any stories related to lycanthropy. Which is good for Felicia, I guess, if anyone spots it. Cat therianothropy is close enough, right?
Rolled 6 + 4>>28255560>son's condition,i haven read any SM comics in ages, can you explain?
>>28255560Jameson's son is a werewolf?!?!
>>28255505No. Also, it it just me or is this thread still pretty empty here?
>>28255560Isn't his son dead?
>>28255505Just got home from driving part of my commuter, voting SP yes
>>28255597>>28255590John Jameson was Man-Wolf. I'm not sure if he still is.>>28255630In Ultimate Spider-Man, yes. In 616 he's very much alive.
>>28255590>>28255597Yep. He got exposed to crystals on the moon that turned him into a werewolf. Some weird magic thing about the remnants of an elder civilization that visited our dimension in the distant past. And went to the moon, for some reason.
>Use confirmed, Writing!
>>28255664Bugger. Eh, hopefully this'll be worth it.
>>28255659He's also capable of taking on a clone of Thanos in one-on-one combat somehow.
>>28255664>You have detected a mouse in the apartment, thanks for burning the parker point!>Love Carnagereminder that we'll have to burn our last one to save her
>>28255639Also, SPECTACULAR SPECTACULAR SPIDER THREADhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnPlEmr3fLA
perhaps the old Chinese men was strange in disguise and give peter the cat statue so that peter would seek him out.
>>28255768>If True, THAT BASTARD
>>28255687That's some crazy bull right there anon.
>>28255768Or it was Wong, his ambiguously Asian assistant. Seriously, what ethnicity is he supposed to be? Wong's a Hawaiian last name, is he Hawaiian?
>>28255659>went to the moon, for some reason.blame anything Moon related that doesn't make sense on the Inhumans. It's easier than accepting that it just doesn't make sense.
>>28255689They're a replenishable resource you know.And Gwen's not being tossed off any bridges any time soon hopefully.
>>28255844If she is tossed off a bridge, I suspect she'll be fine, honestly.
So are we going to try and shoot for the magic girl option if possible?
>>28255877Nah. We're assholes if we don't do everything we can to bring Felicia back to normal, unless she decides otherwise without anything resembling prompting on our part.
>>28255877Not if it looks anything like that. Besides, that should be Felecia's choice, assuming she's not jpgetting mind mojo'd at the time.
>>28255923We shall require thorough documentation though.
>>28255923this, no intentionally sabotaging our quest to return Felicia back to normal.
>Perception DC-18>Result- 15+4(SP)= 19, Success!You head out from Felicia’s, making sure the door stays shut behind you, as Peter Parker and head a few streets away before heading into a dark alley and, upon confirming nobody’s there, scaling it and changing into your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man!Unfortunately, you have no idea where he’s at as nobody seems to know. He showa up in town, films, and then leaves. Hopefully, though, by standing out as Spider-man in your Red and Blue outfit you’ll be able to draw him out.You websling through areas that seems like they’re highly populated and areas that seems like he might show up. Which is any that look interesting- you’re not one of his loyal viewers after ll. However, as you stop on a high tree ledge on the edge of a park, you DO notice something.“It’s Spider-man, dad!”Looking down, you see a young girl, probably about twelve-ish, maybe, pointing up at you. She’s got reddish hair and her father seems to be a large man with a bvery distinctive moustache. You see the man pull out a camera and focus it on you quickly, obviously snapping pictures. Seems like he probably does it for a living. Waving, you decide to show off a little before you continue on. Falling off of the tree backwards, you let yourself fall a bit before extending a hand and shooting a web to the large tree branch you were standing on earlier, using the momentum to propel your swing as you head off into the city in search of Stephen Strange.>[ ] Continue searching around >[ ] Call it quits, head back to Felicia’s>[ ] Look around, but see if there’s any local crime you can stop>[ ]Write in
>>28255979If she decides she wants to do something like that to keep a portion of the power she has right now on a temporary basis, that is her ultimate choice.
>>28255984>[ ] Continue searching around
>>28255984Stop local crime.Best way to get Strange interested is a daring rescue of some sort.
>>28255994>Continue searching, if we see crime, or an accident, or someone falling from a rooftop, or a multi car pileup, we intervene.
>>28255984...why did we decide to suit up already?>keep looking around, as Parker!
>>28255984Continue searching around!If we stumble headfirst into something, of course we should stop it, but fixing our immediate fuckup is of vital importance.>legislating Edmemen...Oh god, Senator!Spidey...
>>28255984>[x] Continue searching around we can still happen across some crime while searching.
>>28255984>[ ] Look around, but see if there's any local crime you can stop
Rolled 5 + 4>>28255984>>[ ] Continue searching aroundif it's fruitless >[ ] Look around, but see if there’s any local crime you can stopWe really need to punch somebody in face
>>28255984Alright, that SP use didn't seem to be terribly useful...>[ ] Continue searching around But keep an eye out for local crime, I suppose.
>>28255984Aww! And Red's a certain someone's favorite color! Yeah for Carnage foreshadowing!
>>28256064It got our picture taken not attacking cops.PR boost, yeah? I bet next we find a criminal and get a pic stopping them.
>>28255984Maybe we should head to a kind of gothy wiccany place, see if Strange has any distinctive fans?Also, why is John Goodman in Speed Racer taking pictures of us?
>>28256058No we don't. And we have a freaking time limit for the Felecia situation for all we know. No looking for dumb distractions.
>>28256091Yeah, she's gotta be ready for school on Monday.
>>28256064It could be important. The pic used is of Spider-girl's dad. The little girl was probably Anya Corazon. In which case our noticing her and showing off just inspired a member of the next generation of heroes, somewhere around half a decade from now.
>>28255984waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit a second. I may not be able to read that Russian...but I know who that is.Clever, Cosgrove. Clever.We're inspirational.
>>28255984Wait did Gwen actually buy tickets to see one of Strange's shows?If so, when was it scheduled for?
>>28256138Oh yeah. I forgot what he looked like. That's cool then.
>>28255984>[ ] Look around, but see if there’s any local crime you can stopMake sure uncle Ben or friends live, we must keep an eye out
>>28256138Huh, that's...>>28256070Going to be tragically heart-wrenching, isn't it?
>>28255877I want to say yes, but its her call. Unless it's the only way Strange can contain the curse that is.
Look at it this way, at least she isn't being possessed/whatevered by Sekhmet instead of Bast.
Rolled 2 + 4>>28256138>Spider-girl'sDose this means we can create spider inc in the future?
>>28256317>Peter Parker>Having a futureThat's probably not going to happen, unfortunately.
>>28256340616 Peter had a good run.
>>28256340But how will we found the galactic brotherhood of spidermen?
>>28256276Jesus christ that's creepy
>>28256317Do not get you're hopes up. Let's start by not having our girlfriend turned into an actual housecat.
>>28256371Pretty sure that's up to our descendants and legacy characters.
>>28256379You should continue looking around, but you might as well do some public services too. You should look around for any crime you could stop.Which direction do you look in>[ ]North>[ ]South>[ ]East>[ ]West>I will also need a perception check- 1d20+6, DC19.
>>28256400What issue is this from?
Rolled 17 + 6>>28256455
>>28256455I look in the direction of...Dr. Strange!
Rolled 1 + 6>>28256455West!
Rolled 7 + 6>>28256455West.
Rolled 5 + 6>>28256455>East...
>>28256455>East>>28256478Yep, not going to even bother rolling; got it on lock.
>>28256455>South, Soho is a magical part of manhattan.

Rolled 10 + 6>>28256455>[ ]North/>[ ]East>>28256493we doomed
>>28256493Not the best start.Though considering we're looking for trouble, I'm... not really sure what this means?
>>28256523We wasted a lot of time or found some goblinz...
>>28256549Can we please just preroll the Newport set of fails Cos?
>>28256549B-but it was best of three, right?Please tell me I didn't seal our fate
>>28256570failures and successes override everything elsewe dead now
>>28256570Crits override regular rolls. We critfailed.
>>28256570Best of three, unless there's a 1. 1's crit-fail, and all our villains gain an Unspectacular Point. That's bad.
>>28256570Critical failures override any die roll other than critical success....Jerk.
>>28256549And there's crime.And it was a violent one.And we didn't get there in time.And we get blamed for it.
>>28256570Crits trump, that's how it is everywhere.
>>28256570It always defaults to failure with a 1, just like it always defaults to victory with a 20. Here's hoping it just means we'll get in over our head, not that we'll fail to notice something bad going on and have that on our conscience.
>>28256570Read the rules...we're just swinging along when our Spider Sense starts buzzing the MJ sign as a white panel van rolls by?
>>28256594>>28256598>>28256599>>28256601>>28256610>>28256623welpI'm just going to stop rolling before we get spider girl killed by carnage
>>28256605Yep. And to make it worse, we were seen showboating for pictures earlier in the day. Still, we aren't a hero so it doesn't matter much that the photographer's daughter died.
>>28256644>>28256605That's not a party.A party is "Suddenly Hobgoblin, bet you had your soundproof suit on"
>>28256640There is no spider girl. Gwen seems to have closed a different route. You probably did get someone else needlessly (not a planned plot point) raped or murdered though.
>>28256640Eh, could be worse. I think we're just going to smash into a building or something. It can't be THAT critical... I hope.
Or are we about to get shot at.
Remember guys this isn't Bleach Quest; so Parker Luck isn't immediately burned. It builds and builds. Like a poison.
>>28256689Ooh, that sounds likely!
>>28256689Or literally stumble right into our friend Maximum Carnage.
>>28256644No, that won't happen off of a 1 rolling for perception. Not yet, at least. No, she'll be killed after her father submits the pictures to the Bugle and gets Carnage's attention. Then he'll track them back to their house, find that Anya has his favorite color of hair, and murder them. Or just one of them, I can see him holding back a bit for the sake of leaving someone to be traumatized.
>>28256730From a certain point of view, wouldn't that be a good thing?
>>28256741We stumble into his knife first.
>>28256720We know. But we only have one SP so we can't afford to get rid of it... Can we still do a Luck burn if we kill the villain after revealing our identity?
>>28256741We don't know who he is. And he doesn't want to harm us, just to get our attention. That's why our spider sense is useless against the guy.
>>28256750Killing a villain will probably gain us a Parker Luck point...
Before we go any further, I just want to point out that one of our options before leaving was to look up Strange's location. Just sayin...
>>28256781He's our biggest fan. And he'll make sure he keeps that title.
>>28256800>I would have also suggested that, you know, power of goggle compels you. Check the NY filming certification website for what shoots had permits today, etc
>>28256796One point vs. many. Which would you take?
>>28256800I think it was implied that we did look but couldn't find squat?
>>28256844Nope. We just suited up and left.
>>28256822Well, right now we're at one... So I'd not really worry about it.>>28256800Yeah... We may need to head back and google.
>>28256822Well, being Peter Parker, we'd probably go for both. We kill him, earning Parker Luck, he somehow comes across symbiotic-y goodness, and the symbiote-boosted, mangled corpse becomes this universe's Carnage, leading to more Parker Luck.
>>28256870We have a cellphone. And Gwens number.Also we should pick her up a signed headshot.
>1! Automatic Faulure. Peter Parker’s bad luck increases by one…You head towards the North, looking for Strange or any signs of crime. There’s less good web slinging spots. So, you don’t pay attention to where you’re going as you land on a building’s rooftop.Until the Sirens blare and your Spider-sense rings loudly. Looking around, you see guards currying around, points guns at you. You look around until you spot a flag, your mind quickly remembering where you last saw it…Shit. Shitshitshitshitshit SHITYou’re on the roof of the Latverian Embassy. And their Heir returned to New York Recently. Nearby, you see two arms grip the edge of the rooftop as a cloaked form jumps onto the roof like an acrobat, landing on the edge gracefully. Considering the man’s attire, it’s nothing less than impressive! He seems to be wearing a full suit with some sort of cape, along with metal gauntlets and a mask.Pointing at you dramatically, the man’s eyes narrow behind the mask.“You! Masked menace! Tell DOOM the reason behind your violation of the Embassy that represents the Sovereign Nation of Latveria or suffer my wrath!”>[ ] Try to calm him down, it was all a misunderstanding!

>>28256902That is one bitching Doom.Dare we lie and say we want to help him out? We could offer to do science for him to give him an edge against Richards.
>>28256902"Sorry, wasn't paying attention to where I was swinging, lost in thought and trying to get my barings. I'll just be going, gotta find a wizard,"

>>28256902>[ ] Try to calm him down, it was all a misunderstanding! (Write in)What >>28256939 said. Doom is a bit of a jerk, but he'd at least be decent enough to accept an apology, right?
>>28256944My god it's perfect.Dr. Strange is on his Rolodex.
>>28256986HAHAHAHAHA!>>28256902>>[ ] …Flee!
>>28256939"I'll make sure it doesn't happen again "Mr. Doom" Good to see you're doing well..."
>>28257022>MrDoesn't he have a doctorate? Please don't offend the sovereign head of Latveria.
>>28256902I was getting tired sir I have been swing around all day looking for some magic guy diden't relize were I was (bow)
>>28256902>"My apologies DOOM. I lost my way searching for a query and needed a vantage point from which to reset abolish my location and hopefully hunt my prey. Unfortunately in a moment of thoughtless weakness I failed to recognize the flags, soldiers, Latverian emblem...(sigh) ok, I was distracted a bit by the architecture, the building's facade is pretty amazing."Prepare to run for our life.
"Speak quickly and with purpose peasant. I grow weary of your presence."
>>28256902>“You! Masked menace! Tell DOOM the reason behind your violation of the Embassy that represents the Sovereign Nation of Latveria or suffer my wrath!”"I took a wrong turn looking for a wizard.">"You expect DOOM to believe your invasion of the Embassy that represents the Sovereign Nation of Latveria is merely the result of GETTING LOST?""I am not a clever man."
>>28257039He got his doctorate from a university he founded. He couldn't get accepted into any doctoral program in any school in the entire world.It's not something we should bring up with him.
>>28257089I am reasonably certain he'll murder us if we don't use Doctor or Sir or something.Don't challenge the doctorate, he'll go supervillain, yeah?
>>28257105easily avoided by not addressing him directly.
>>28256902This is "Roll to Walk" levels of fucking retarded. *facepalm*That said, >Try to calm him down, it was all a misunderstanding!Throw out the situation you're trying to fix. Doom is a man of SCIENCE and MAGIC-- he might be interested.
>>28257082...Yeah that's what this situation is.
>>28257089>>28257039Lord is the title you're looking for.And the only way we're getting out of this is to suck his dick a little.And honestly while I wouldn't expect Peter to know the nuances of this encounter yet; it's safe to deduct that this is Victor Von Doom from Reeds space experiment and that he's more than a bit of a hothead. And an arrogant one at that, so indulging his power fetish is the only way we're getting out of this.
>>28257122He was probably asking for a roll to notice the Embassy for some flavor text or another event and when we crit failed....well it is GM candy.
>>28256902>[ ] Try to calm him down, it was all a misunderstanding! (Write in)"I was actually just looking for a place to rest. The city looks really different from above, I didn't recognize that this was the Latverian embassy. My apologies, Ur Doom. I would never intentionally make such an insult to the people and government of Latveria. Still, I have done so. Let me make this right. How would one go about atoning for such a breach in Latveria?"Let's be polite, use the proper honorifics (Laterveria is supposedly a splinter state of Hungary, "Ur" means "Lord"), and put ourselves at his mercy. It's the best way to deal with DOOM.
>>28257122Seconding this. DOOM is an accomplished Wizard, he might be able to help. Especially if we can word it right, or he can use it to one up Richards. Also, if Spidey can totally befriend Loki, he can totally befriend DOOM!
Get ready for the fooddrive and the blender.
>>28257155>implying Peter would ever said that to DOOM
>>28257191We don't really have any in-character way of knowing any of it.Right now all we know is that this is a guy we don't want to fuck with.
>>28257191>>As yet we don't know Doom is magic. And cosgrove might not have a magic Doom. We roll with the punches we are dealt
>So, you're lost and looking for a wizard and that you meant no offense, then? >That about what you want to say, but not necessarily how?
>>28257052>>28256979>>28256976>>28256963>>28256947>>28256944>Not claiming we were simply overenthusiastic in our wish to pay our respects to DOOM while he was in the neighbourhood.It's like you guys don't even bluff.
>>28257240Sounds about the right intent. And we are currently affected by our masked bravado; therefore flushed with Spider-Confidence
>>28257240The how is as politely and deferentially as possible.We may not be up on foreign affairs, but this is a head of state, yeah?
>>28257240I am entirely in favor of just using >>28257082I know it's a reference to Buttersafe, but it actually makes perfect sense for an interaction between the two characters.
>>28257240Nah just tell him straight outno need pussy-footing around DOOM
>>28257240Pretty much.>>28257258We don't know anything about Doom. He could be a perfectly reasonable guy. He's not. But he could be.
>>28257240Yep, that's the gist of it.
>>28257258You don't bluff to DOOM, otherwise he ends up crashing through your wall in the middle of the night, wanting to know why you lied to DOOM because DOORS ARE FOR PEASANTS!
>>28257240Just say we're looking for a Stephen Strange guy and we got lost and weren't paying attention to where we where going and oh god we are so sorry. And then we're super duper sorry and polite and indulge royalty.
>>28256902"Sir, I can benchpress a Bentley and dodge bullets. If I had intended violence, your security would already be in tatters. Latveria has a reputation as being a very educated country, especially for so small a population. I have a unique biological abnormality which modern science cannot explain, and the current culture in America is anathema to research for the sake of research, or altruism. Might the vaunted Latverians be willing to consider a scientific partnership?"
>>28257280So what you're saying is that we need to make friends with Luke Cage and/or Squirrel Girl as soon as possible. Only they are immune to the wrath of DOOM!
>>28257240The wizard is e comedy beat. We have to set this up as genuinely apologetic and stroke DOOM's ego by semi-groveling and praising his embassy. Then we admit we're looking for Strange because we need a wizard. Then DOOM tells us that he is a wizard. We ask if he consults for broke costumed vigilantes and if he knows anything about anthropomorphizing curses. Then we get some choices and fail a roll or two.
>"I will fix this girl, however in return, I will call on you for a favor one day Man of Spider. And you will heed that call or face the wrath of Latveria."
Rolled 13 + 5>>28257240>Very Well>Now, how eloquent and Effectual are your words against DOOM?>1d20+6, DC is this roll result!
Rolled 11 + 6>>28257317Man, I hope we get a Nat 20. Friends with DOOM would be awesome.
>>28257270That does seem funny, but might end up being a disaster.
Rolled 18 + 6>>28257317
Rolled 15 + 6>>28257317Rolling
Rolled 3 + 6>>28257317Time to Victor Von Fail!
Rolled 6 + 6>>28257317please no crit fail
>>28257329Nice work, you.
>>28257329Oh thank sweet merciful beyonder
>>28257240it is the TRUTH,I am pretty sure he can detect lies any way
>>28257339>>28257341>>28257345>>28257349Aw, shucks. Twern't nuthin.
>>28257329Anon, you may have just saved us from the wrath of DOOM.If all else fails, be sure to blame our wrong turn on that accursed RICHARDS.
One last DOOM before we hit the streets again, hopefully on good terns with the betuniced megalomaniac that is DOOM.
>>28257363Thanks for reminding me of how much of an asshole richards is
>>28257362Huh, like the socks on that costume.
>>28257450Yeah, Doc Ock made some real improvements.
>>28257410You know, Latveria really isn't that bad a place. Sure, it's an Orwellian dictatorship under DOOM's rule, but it has a pretty good standard of living. It went from third world poverty to the ninth richest country on Earth. Free universal health care, no crime, and they're absolutely safe from any foreign attack, except maybe by the Fantastic Four. It's a nice place. So long as you don't defy the will of DOOM. I think we could team up with him, maybe turn him towards the light. There's still room for him to be a good guy. So he hates Richards. Who doesn't?
>>28257469Yeah, I keep hearing Superior's a decent book. I just didn't agree with the premise so I've never picked it up. Besides, Venom filled my Spider Quota....
>>28257512You forget that the nation has also been successfully stormed by Powerman over a matter of $200.00 and Squirel Girl
>>28257519It is a good book, and while I don't really like the premise I do like the status quo getting shook up.. Venom's been canned, unfortunately.
>>28257512Yeah let's not get too ambitious here.For the foreseeable future our goal with DOOM should just be to not get our ass killed.
>>28257543Squirrel Girl is awesome, though.
>>28257543Superheroes are the exception. Even DOOM can't do that much.Besides, it was related to squirll girl. DOOM knows better.
>>28257512You know, I tend to root for Doom in the stories he's in-- Not because he's morally right, (though he often is, and he's almost always more than a few shades of grey away from pure evil) but because Reed Richards is such an unbearably pompous asshole.
>>28257572Agreed, besides if he hears our tale and offers to help, at a price...we may not be ready to pay it and have to consult with Felicia if she thinks he's on the up and up.
>>28257573Squirrel Girl is the most powerful character in the Marvel Universe.
>>28257519Besides, Venom filled my Spider Quota....I'm sad now...
>>28257606Her official stat blocks are maxed out. She is as powerful as or even more so than most cosmic entities.
>>28257469Tabi socks are a pretty logical addition to the suit, though. I'm surprised no one drew him with them before. Peter's basically a ninja, he might as well look the part. Tailor the jacket on our costume a bit and we'd get something looking like the stereotypical ninja tunic. It'll go nicely with the narrower eyespots on the mask we're currently using. Especially since we don't have a web motif on our costume yet.
>>28257626There there, Cosgrove. There there.Things will get better
>Calm DOOM’s wrath with a reasonable explanation!>DC-18, Result-24, Success!You raise your hands non-threateningly. “I‘m sorry! I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going. I was keeping an eye out for any crime to prevent while looking for this wizard guy and I didn’t see where I landed. I never would have done it intentionally and I deeply regret my actions.”The man crosses his arms as you wait for him to say something. He presses a finger against his mask and a few moments later you see the guards stand down. “You, Man who dresses in a Spider Costume. DOOM will forgive you but this once. In return, you must appease DOOM’s curiosity- what seek you with a wizard?”“Well… I was looking for one to help break a curse.”DOOM seems to be looking carefully at you as he nods. “Then, perhaps you have been guided by destiny to DOOM, for he is on the way to mastery of the Arcane Arts! I shall break this curse, if it is within my power, but first you would have to do one task for DOOM.”>[ ] I’m listening>[ ] Thank you for the offer, but I’d rather not waste your time.>[ ] I don’t think you’re able to do it.>[ ] Write in

>>28257667[X] I'm listeningDoom's the first wizard we've found, and he hasn't done anything shady, so let's hear him out. Of course we need to know what the favor is before agreeing.
>>28257705DOOM wishes for you to spraypaint "Richards Sucks" on the side of the Baxter Building!
>>28257667>not at least hearing him out>[ ] I’m listening
>>28257667[X]I'm listening.We can do the"I don't think you can do it" but then DOOM might be mad that we attempted to do that kind of bullshit on him. NO MAD DOOM. GOD PLEASE.So let just listen.
>>28257667>[ ] I’m listening
>>28257667>[ ] Thank you for the offer, but I’d rather not waste your time."You're too important for a puny wannabe-hero like me."

>>28257667>[ ] I’m listeningSay it politely as possible
>>28257765Though offscreen. And she was defeated by Power Man and Jewel's baby when it had spider-powers during spider-island
>>28257789So what you're saying ismake spiderbabies with squirrelgirl and we rule the world?
>>28257667>I’m listeningI mean a guy in a metal mask who leads his own country kind of seems more qualified than a television personality.
>>28257789I think that was more her not wanting to beat the crap out of a baby than anything.
>>28257667> I'm listening>Would you mind if I gave you some more information? I have no idea whether I'm diagnosing this thing correctly or not...
>>28257723>Not doing that for free.
>>28257704Yeah this seems appropriate.I mean we talk about wizards and curses and this guy just goes "yeah that adds up"
>>28257819Nope, Baby got the drop on her. She never knew what hit her.>>28257805Messing around with a Squirel would not make our Cat very happy.

>>28257789Because people don't know how to write Squirrel Girl or understand that she's supposed to be a silly over powered silver age character stuck in the grimdark era. Bendis is the most guilty of Marvels current writers when it comes to this.
>>28257667>[ ] Write in"You really believe me? Wow, thanks. Hell, even I think I might be crazy, and I saw it happen. All I know is that a friend of mine touched a weird statue and transformed afterwards. Are metamorphoses like that a known phenomenon?"

Everyone is on board with the plan to help DOOM fight the cursed Richards, right?
>>28257723I'd do that.
Rolled 3>>28257956We don't have a reason to curse Richards yet...YET.Just wait until we're friends with the Human Torch, then we have plenty of reasons.
>>28257956If Richards goes the route that most of his alternate universe versions go, absolutely.hoping for evil reed and pym and good doom and ultron like a fiend
>>28258002Has DOOM met him at this point?
>>28258015considering they where all trapped in a building for over two weeks and where in space together, yes. They have met.
>>28257875But...Mayday Parker is awesome!
>>28257667Wait, did this DOOM visit Tibet before the space incident?
>>28258015Yes. Remember that Richards caused an "incident " with the Latverian heir. It said so on e news.
>>28258036She's Mary Jane and Peter's kid. Unless everything changes pretty drastically, she's not going to exist.Or at least not that version of her.
>>28258015One of the standard rules of Doom's history, regardless of which continuity he's in, is that he and Richards were roommates in college. They didn't meet again, though, until Doom kidnapped Sue to force Reed to go back in time and steal the enchanted treasure of Blackbeard for him.Oh shit, that's what he's going to ask us to do, isn't it? Are we going to be pirates next thread? Cosgrove, are we doing Pirate Spider-Man? Please tell me that's what we're doing.
>>28258005>Evil Pym>tfw we rescue his hot wife from his abusive clutches>tfw she's abused to the point where she thinks everything she does is wrong, and breaks down in tears every time she messes up even on the littlest things>tfw Peter tries to assure her he's not going to hurt her after she accidentally breaks/rips a personal possession of his.... I'm a sucker for broken bird-type characters. You know, the kind of person you wanna just hug and tell them everything's gonna be okay.
>>28258002Or he tries to take credit for a scientific discovery we make.
>>28258099No...no Broken bird Janet. Please let us have Triple Doctorate Janet with A:EMH Personality PLEASE
>>28258099No, Jenet would be evil to. Since she's already a gigantic bitch in every version of her save EMH.>post #65723468523 explaining that the slap was an editorial mistake and was just supposed to be a shove, but people just won't let it die despite Peter and Richards slapping their wives countless times and for far less
>>28258132Also, so many people have slapped Janet in the same pose style as Hank did, including She-Hulk
>>28258088And just like rescuing Mom in BQ, Gwens stalker gets put on hold.
>>28258132>Create Old Robot Genocide>Gets the most flack for slapping his wife (once) for bugging him about trivial shit during a nervous breakdown
>>28258192Gwen has super powers. She can handle a stalker. And if she needs us to help, we'll help. She's not a damsel in distress who needs us to rescue her. Felicia is at the moment.
>>28258129That would be fun. I'd be okay with Marvel Adventures Janet, too. Giant Girl's a pretty cool take on the character and has a fun sibling dynamic with Peter.. And Marvel Adventures Pym is the sweetest guy, he'd be a great husband. Wouldn't hurt a fly, let alone the girl he loves.
>>28258132>No, Jenet would be evil to. Since she's already a gigantic bitch in every version of her save EMH.And Marvel Adventures.
Rolled 18 + 6>>28258192Sorry Gwen, DOOM wants me to go back in time and play pirates with him!Though, if we become friends with DOOM he can help us find Gwen's stalker.
>>28258231We should give her a set of web slingers, as she knows how to make the fluid.
>>28257925Can't wait to see everybody's reaction when we do the task, and Doom is like 'Hah! Psych! There's no such thing as magic, idiot! Honestly, I can't believe you'd believe in something as absurd as a curse. Your girlfriend is clearly just a werecat.">And then he gets cursed for breaking our agreement, and comes back wanting revenge on us.
>>28258231She clearly can't, does, and is.I mean what has she accomplished since dramatically jumping off that rooftop?
>>28258243everyone is pleasant in Marvel Adventures. That's why it's the best series. It's just good old fun.
>>28258263Nothing because we haven't coordinated with her on what our limited investigation has uncovered nor have we shown her a potential suspect list/pool
>>28258253I back this idea. Hell, after all this is said and done we could give her some when we deliver the blood samples.
>>28258231Gwen don't have the metaphorical balls to fight.She did jack shit against hobogoblin in school. She of course didn't have a costume but she did jack shit to fight back against the stalker even with powers. If she can't handle a stalker, how she going to fight Osborn?
>>28258286"THAT BLASTED SPIDER-MAN"
>>28258239Pym doesn't get nearly as much respect as he deserves. Everybody has screwed up in the Marvelverse, and often on as big a scale as he has. Nobody ever forgets or forgives his mistakes and nobody remembers how awesome he is.
>>28258299Of course, If she angry enough, it might happen.
>>28258299What makes you think the two aren't one and the same?
>>28258253There's a dirty joke in that, I'm sure.>>28258286So...like, Doom gets a cat curse? Or Felicia starts wearing a metal suit and talking in the third person?
>>28258289We could have brought that up while we were talking to her last thread, but it turns out people would rather touch fluffy tail and make things too uncomfortable to have prolonged conversations. Damn it, guys. We need to get this solved. I know Peter Parker is supposed to make a mess of his social life, but we really need to close at least one ongoing case. We've got too many irons in the fire. Of course, we're now involved with Doctor Doom, so there's probably no hope of our life ever getting less complicated at any point.
>>28258315>am meowly here
>>28258345I was going for the first, but now that you mention it~
>>28258333>He is in our suspect pool.
>>28258286"There is no claws for alarm Ritchards. I DOOM am mearly here to mewtilate your reputation and nothing purrther."
>>28258383Well I might have a trick or two that can narrow things down with Hobgoblin, but first we should deal with the whole "curse" thing.
>>28258400It is the most adorable Doom.Marvel at his plot to steal the world's largest ball of yarn
>>28258383>>28258383Dude.We spiderman.Life is complicated.Life is a mess.Life is pain.
>>28258392Is he in our not-blatantly-metagaming suspect pool?Also I still say Gwen and us should make the terrible decision to get in touch with Miles Warren.
>>28258444We don't have a not-blatantly-metagaming suspect pool.
>>28258444>Miles WarrenHow do you plan to get to the ultimates universe?
>>28258444I agree with the terrible decision of getting in touch with Miles Warren, especially in our early investigations of Oscorp as they hung him out to dry.>>28258479However we will start to build one soon, we do have detective.
>>28258400>>28258422DOOM does as DOOM pleases. as he sits on your laptop
>>28258509...Miles Warren. Not Miles Morales.
>>28258509Jackal, the Jackal. The scientist who minded thread 1's mammal lab that Oscorp fired for having ties to someone who got in trouble for experimenting on the human genome.
“I’m certainly interested, but I’m more in awe you believe me. However, before any of that, I would like to know about this task?”DOOM nods and back flips off the roof, landing on the balcony underneath. “Enter, then. DOOM will tell you of this task in privacy, where no others can overhear!”Your Spider-sense isn’t tingling so it seems legit. Hopping down after him, he closes the door behind you into a large, ornate room. Gesturing for you to follow him, he goes over to a bookshelf and pulls on a book, causing the bookshelf to slide to the side and reveal a secret door. Opening it, he gestures for you to follow. Entering it, you find yourself in a room that seems like it’s the child on Snape’s dungeon from Harry Potter and a Stark Expo.Turning towards you, DOOM spreads his arms as if to show off. “This is DOOM’s workshop. As to how I believe you, as a practitioner of the arcane arts, I can vaguely see your connection to the mystical side of this world. However, it does not seem to have the typical negative problems that are common in curses.”Wait what?Clearing your throat, you shake your head. “Sorry to interrupt, but I’m pretty sure I’m not cursed. My friend was. I bought a statue from this odd shop and now my friend seems to have physical changes to resemble that of a cat for seemingly no reason.”DOOM pauses. “While your story does seem to have the large possibility of being a curse, are you sure your friend isn’t just a mutant?”>[ ] Wait what?>[ ] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.>[ ] Not to be rude, but what about the task?>[ ] What’s with the mask?>[ ] Write in
>>28258523Peter pets as Peter pleases.

>>28258557Mutants are real? Feign surprise.And then missing statue obviously.

>>28258557>>[ ] Wait what?>>[ ] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.>Write in. Explain the statue and how, even though we have a hard time believing it, the events match up to much to be coincidence. Also, mutants? You mean the X-gene is an actual thing. This world is much begger than I thought it was.
>>28258557>>[ ] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.
>>28258557>>[ ] Wait what?>>[ ] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.Yeah... These.
>>28258557"Wait what? Mutant, the thing that Xavier wrote papers on then renegged Mutant?"after explanation"Yeah, the cat part of the statue had disappeared by the next morning, no damage to the rest of the bauble, not even paint marks"
Real talk fa/tg/uys?We still need to meet Dr. Strange today if nothing else than to enjoy a mystic marvel double feature and to get Gwen some swag for making her sit it out.
>>28258557>>[ ] Wait what?>>[ ] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.This DOOM seems like a pretty cool bro, dramatics aside. Might just be academic interest though.
>>28258680Yeah, we'll meet up with him and still try to track him down and all, because why not. We should still try to get his autograph.
>>28258557>[ ] Write in"It's one of the possibilities I considered. I have another friend who's more skilled with biology running some tests for me. Given the unusual nature of the changes I'm not willing to rule out any origin, yet. It was much more rapid than I'd expect of a biological cause, though."
>>28258557>wait what?>pretty sure, the statue changed as wellDO NOT AS ABOUT THE TRADITIONAL LATVERIAN MASK! Clearly it's a part of his cultural heritage and likely something he gets asked about all the time, so no need to bug him further.
>>28258727"Not to mention the usual hallmarks of a complete metabolic change were absent in the immediate aftermath, like no extreme hunger o- heh, look at my rambling on and on about this while you're getting ready to work mojo and tell me about the favor,"

Serious biological bodily alterations do not happen overnight unless there is an extreme outlying factor. The incident that gave me my powers being one example. I was with her the entire night, nothing noteworthy occurred, even to the most simple-minded teenager. I'm fairly certain my personal abnormality isn't contagious, and the disappearance of the small feline statue, while circumstantial, is also unusual enough to make me suspicious of supernatural involvement."
>>28258680Strange and Doom have teamed up before. For most people Doom is only ever a villain, but Strange is so powerful (and powerful in a way that Doom knows he can't surpass) that even Victo von Doom is willing to swallow his pride and cooperate instead of oppose. It's just so much easier for them, that way.
>>28258808"Ok, what's the favor?""You will escort DOOM... to a recording of Strange Mysteries in lower Manhattan... DOOMs date canceled and DOOM does not wish to go alone."
>>28258808>Also, Doom knows it is Stephen's duty to protect this plane of earthly existence from things like Dormamu and etc, important tasks all the same that would take Doom's attention from more important work, like rescuing his mother's soul from hell. However when the title of Sorcerer Supreme was up for Grabs, Doom participated because it would have been rude for a sorcerer of his power not to.
>>28258871That would be hilarious.
>>28258727>>28258778Ooh, these are good. Cos, add these in, please!
>>28258919Don't babble at DOOM
>>28258871YesYESI love seeing super heroes doing mundane stuff like that. Especially in universe "big deal" guys like Dr. Doom and Tony Stark.this might also be why I like Dethklok. Fish out of water stuff.
>>28258946"Ah yes, I believe this is one of your American "Food Libraries" as you call them."
>[X] Wait what?>[X] Pretty sure, the statue changed as well.DOOM is a pretty cool dude.Better than that Richard faggot.The only cool Richard is the one that is the leader of SHIELD.
>>28258871You must... Take my daughter Cynthia to homecoming!
>>28258985And Peter's father.
So when does the girl from the cyborg quest one shot show up?
>>28258946Know what would be better? We help DOOM prep for an interview with Coulbert. We get asked to mouth off to DOOM with no repercussion whatsoever!
>>28258999Parker Genes and DOOM genes together.That the worst combination possible. DOOM/PARKER genius plus a lot of money, a country, magic and PARKER LUCK.It over. GG no re world.
>>28259036Probably in 40-50 years?
You pause. “Wait, what? Besides, I’m pretty sure, the statue changed as well. The cat on it disappeared without so much as a missing paint mark. Furthermore, it seems more rapid than a normal biological mutation should be.”DOOM nods, writing some notes down. “There is, you may ot know, a section of humans with superhuman abilities that exist. However, common knowledge of them is quieted down and those with unique abilities are rounded up. Latveria is currently an asylum for a few and if they should come for you due to your abilities, DOOM will grant you asylum as well, for DOOM is magnanimous in that manner. But, this is off the topic.”DOOM struts over towards a table and pulls out a picture before walking back and handing it to you. “Do you know who this is?”Nodding your head, you recognize the face. “Yeah, she’s Susan Storm. She was with Reed Richards on his space flight and is currently isolated within the Baxter Building.”DOOM nod his head, his hand coming up to touch his mask as he tenses at Richard’s name. “Indeed. That is story told by RICHARDS to the public. But I, DOOM, know the truth! Poor Susan, along with her boorish brother are being isolated from the outside world so RICHARDS can keep her away from me!”You notice DOOM seems to spit Reed Richard’s last name as you recall there was a history between the two. Something Richards did to him that forced him to return to Latveria shortly before the space flight. Taking a calming breath, DOOM points at you.“DOOM will break your curse, no matter how long it may take or how arduous it may be, if you, MAN of SPIDERS, infiltrate the Baxter Building and bring me evidence of Susan’s well being, along with this letter!”DOOM poses dramatically before holding out a letter towards you expectantly.>[ ] I’ll do it!>[ ] My apologies, but I cannot do what you wish me to do.>[ ] Write in

>>28259150You clearly have no conception of the level of security present in the Baxter building. Then again, neither would Peter.
>>28259181Need to find Susan too

>>28259117 Write in"Well, as long as it's just proof that Susan Storm's ok. Is there anything in the letter that will get us in trouble? A 'shoot the messenger' sort of thing. Oh, and how hard will it be to get into the Baxter Building?"
>>28259182It's more the sociopathic turning on you without warning if his word or honor (his conception of his own honor) aren't tied in the mix. And that while he always keeps his word, the results may vary...Probably fine in this case.
Are we even going to ask this guy to show us that magic is a thing before we do his delivery quest?
>>28259209I bet if we just swing by there we can walk straight through the front door. Richards would LOVE to see us. He's a scientist, after all.
>>28259117Delivering a love letter? Sure, why not?Richards is a terrible husband, anyway. If we weren't already with Felicia I'd try and see if we could make a move on Susan ourselves.

>>28259218....just take the letter.Don't question the doom as if he was lying to you.He wants proof she is alive and the letter delivered.He not asking us to sell our marrige. It to deliver a fucking letter.Spiderman, pizza or letter, the fastest waynto deliver.
>>28259248I think she's like at least five as much as ten years older than Peter. (22-27)
>>28259268What part of "if we weren't already with Felicia" do you not understand?
>>28259230Do you want to doubt the man in the metal mask?
>>28259290Restrained =/= calmed
>>28259268>anon can't into reading comprehension
>>28259248Nah. DOOM's a bro and has clearly called dibs. We have to wait for things to not work out between them, time to pass and get his consent before we make a move. That is the code. Or he murders Aunt May and trades her soul for his mother's.
>>28259296Yeah, is this the face of someone who would lie to us?
Do we aks Doom if he wants a responce?
>>28259117"I'll see if I can do it,"Guys...guys...we're dating the world's greatest thief. We can do this. Alternatively: Spider-Man Courier Service, I have a special delivery for Susan Storm: signature, ID check, questionnaire, and reply service required,"
>Writing>36889954 1408No captcha, fuck you. You aren't killing me with an evil hotel room.
>>28259117 I'll do it!
>>28259296I don't know much Doom, but he does strike me as the type that if he promises something he damn well means to deliver. He believes in his own personal honor and reneging on a promise would hurt his honor.
>>28259117>[ ] I’ll do it!"That sounds awful. I hope it's not anything sinister. Yeah, I'll deliver your letter. Should I try to get a response from her, or do you want me to just drop off the letter and take some pictures without anyone seeing me?"
>>28259288>Not wanting christmas cakewhat kind of anon are you
>>28259230DOOM is known for keeping his word. If he says He'll do something it's as good as done. There may however, be some unmentioned collateral involved.
>>28259345"I have over 1000 hours logged across the Eldar Scrolls series."
>>28259342Like I said. We're already with a girl so I'm not even gonna bother. I can be content that there is at least one alternate universe where the two are already together.
>>28259379"Well, with that many hours logged, you must certainly be a Wiz- wait a second, you're over thirty right?"
>>28259352Yeah pretty much.We have an expert on the subject.
>>28259379Doom does that with one of his clones and later upload the memories.
>>28259363That's exactly Doom's character. He's one of the smartest men on earth, and he's also one of the most moral.
>>28259117I'll do it!
>>28259374Yeah, that envelope is obviously filled with exploding nanites or something like that. But he'll probably genuinely try to help us.
>>28259371She's taken I may like my christmas cake just as much as anyone else, but i do have standards.
>>28259117Wait, guys, dont you see? That can be the start of Peter's journalistic tendencies, one he realizes he can sell the photos of Reed's activities to tabloids for big cash!>A scoop on the happenings of the people who've been in isolation for a while will do that>[x] I'll do it!Swell guy this doom fella. And he owns his own country, and says he's help us out for being a mutant!
>>28259395"DOOM is as old as DOOM feels."
Am I the only one pulling up our character sheet every once in a while, looking at that Parker Luck Point and cursing the 15xp engineering perk that we aren't going to use this arc?
>>28259413To clarify, DOOM didn't say YOU were a mutant. He said he'd offer you sanctuary if people came after you because they THOUGHT you were a mutant.
>>28259404It's kind of like JJJ and his pro-mutant politics.I like the fact that these characters are presented as multifaceted people.
>>28259447Though he did say we were magic.
>>28259447so he knows were a magic man?neat
>>28259413Or just see if Eddie will pay us for the scoop.
>>28259408Hmm, oh, sorry, I was trying to imply that he might start a war between the U.S. and the Egyptian Pantheon. But yeah, the letter probably doubles as a bomb for Richards.
>>28259470No, just that we were vaguely connected to mystical forces. Something we really should ask about later.
>>28259470>>28259474He said "I can vaguely see your connection to the mystical side of this world."We're a product of Science! first.
>>28259489We can hit Strange up with that later today/ night.
>>28259506Assuming we don't befriend the everliving shit out of Doom.
>>28259506Doctors as with Wizards, a second opinion never hurts.>>28259489"So, we're part magic."
>>28259411True, but taken by Reed Richards. This is a man who, at best, is brilliant but does little to aid the plight of his fellow man. At worst...well, he's pretty much the Doctor Doom of Ultimate Marvel.
>>28259526The only thing better than befriending a megalomaniac wizard who owns a country, is befriending the king wizard. Also I really REALLY want to chat with this universes Strange.
>>28259526Why not both? Doom has no grudge against Strange. He has actually said that he appreciates Strange's work and tries not to interfere. And Strange has never deliberately stepped up to oppose Doom on magical matters.
>>28259552"I'll unleash an army of rattailed mary sues in power lifters to conquer europe!"Stupid to the max.
>>28259411Seems they aren't married yet in this timeline. Still a chance for her to get with someone that isn't a terrible husband.
>>28259526Friend? DOOM has no need of FRIENDS!
>>28259585The only thing that ever keeps Richards from turning into a supervillain (and a much more effective one than Doom) is Sue. We shouldn't interfere.
>>28259585You DO know what happens to Reeds who don't have Sue's to ground them right?
>>28259613Then we shouldn't have agreed to deliver the love letter from Doom.
>>28259613NO fuck reedhes a huge asshole and deserves what he gets
>>28259585I'd rather keep Felicia anyway.
>>28259613Sure we should. Imagine DOOM as the ultimate force of good in this world!
>>28259634So you'd rather sacrifice countless lives for a single women who tends to be pretty happy in her universal roll?Shinji please leave.
>>28259629>>28259613They get put down by Doctor Doom and Spidey working together?
>>28259613>>28259629>Doom as a hero>Richards as a villainI fail to see the problem here.
>>28259650Sounds like normal continuity to me.
>>28259650It's the "Doom as a hero" part. That's not going to happen.
>>28259647We deliver the letter, find out what's what. and assuming no supernatural mumbo jumbo happens with that with that...argh, being Spider-Man sucks in the long run, we just have to roll with it.
>>28259663Doom has been a hero plenty of times.
>>28259648>>28259650DOOM is always the first person Ritchards goes after when he turns and he almost always wins that fight.I remember early in this quests history I shared a dream I had where Dr. Doom, Sue, and Spider-Man (who later headed SHIELD) formed the Future Foundation which is an organization that exterminates evil alternate universe Reeds before they unlock the secrets to inner-dimensional travel.
>>28259663Do you have any idea how many times Doom has saved the world? More than Richards and Stark combined.
>>28259679And yes they wore the white FF uniforms. And also Peter was engaged to Felicia.It was awesome.
>>28259673And if he had Susan to ground him the way Richards normally does he'd probably be one a lot more regularly.
>>28259663Actually, the only real subversion of DOOM being a classical Hero is the frequency with which he is bested. Really heros are not nice people, they just have good PR.
Doom's name has been evoked over 128 times in this thread as I write this.This probably pleases Doom.
>>28259684>Army of Darkness vs. Evil Dead>Doom rounds up the best specimens humanity has to offer and teleports them off universe>Then stays back to detonate the portal so the zombies can't figure out where they went or how to get there
“I’ll do it.”Carefully taking the letter and storing it in your largest, most secure pocket, you notice the elaborate and delicately written cursive that reads ‘To Susan Storm’ on it. DOOM nods, putting a hand on your shoulder. “DOOM is trusting you with a very sensitive task. You must be swift, MAN of SPIDERS, and return within the day. If that letter were to reach the wrong hands, terrible things would happen.”Removing his hand he turns around, looking at large shelves of books. “In the meanwhile, DOOM shall consult his repertoire of Tomes to identify this curse. However, you may yet need to bring the cursed object and the one who was cursed to DOOM for a cure to be found.”DOOM looks back at you. “For DOOM to honor this bargain, you must return tonight with evidence of Susan and the letter’s delivery. A guard will hand you a camera on your way out. When you return, enter at the Embassy’s front gates and DOOM will personally escort you inside.”He looks back towards the books, hands held behind his back. It seems like he’s dismissed you. Taking the cue, you head out side and when you’re safely away from the embassy, you pause on a rooftop. What should you do?>[ ] Try to enter the quarantined Baxter Building through the front door.>[ ] Try to sneak into the Baxter building>[ ]Screw this.

>[X] Try to sneak into the Baxter buildingThe quarantine building is fucking quarantine. No way in.We need to sneak in.

>>28259729Lets try a compromise: Break in through the front door! They'll never see it coming!
>>28259729Our girlfriend is a master thief.Maybe she has some protips for us?
>>28259729>Write in: Call Felicia and explain the situation,. Ask for advice. (Isn't Peter sneaking into Baxter Building how he met the FF in 616?>>28259795Oh won't that be an entertaining conversation.
>>28259795ThisAnd no, we don't use the front door people. Why? Because people will see us and if we then try to break in, it just becomes that much worse.
Obviously, we need a clipboard, a name tag (Spider-Man, Friendly Neighborhood) and a brown cap to go with our current outfit...And blue shorts. Though it is winter...so maybe what pants we have on now are fine.
>>28259785No, we buy a pizza and then act like we're delivering it.
>>28259745>>28259747>>28259757>>28259770>>28259774>>28259779>>28259798>>28259802>>28259817>>28259822>Not calling our girlfriend>Who knows all about breaking and entering.
>>28259795Oh my god this.PLEASE go with this.
>>28259830They won't think we're breaking in if we knock and wait patiently.Anyway, Sewers, Sewers or Pizza.If we do Pizza, we can have a slice.
>>28259729>[ ] Try to enter the quarantined Baxter Building through the front door.Maybe ask Felicia for advice, but fast.
>>28259822Sneak through the Front door!More seriously though:[x] Sneak into the Baxter building.[x] Ring up Felicia and ask her for advice on said.
>>28259729>[ ] Try to sneak into the Baxter buildingThe front door is locked, but is the top door? Let's climb to the top and try to sneak in through the roof access. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. As far as Peter knows, anyway.Getting back to Doom will be hard, though. Entering the Embassy through the front gates could look really bad if anyone catches us doing it. Which is probably why he wants us to do it, gives him a bit of leverage over us if we're associated with him like that. Well, he's not a supervillain yet, just a (admittedly really ominous) politician. Maybe we should head to the library real quick to search the web (note, we must make a web crawler program of our own at some point, the pun is too obvious) and make sure he's not reviled in the international community or anything like that.
>>28259829>"I need to get into the Baxter Building.">"What why? Is that what Strange told you to do?">"No, it is what a living D&D character told me to do. I'm pretty sure he was at least a level 6 spellsword.">"... what?"
>>28259729Dammit Cosgrove, I find myself fanboying like crazy with every DOOM-related post you make.
>>28259795This. We're dating one of the best thiefs, let's get some intel before we try to get in.
>>28259785Not assuming that Richard use such an outdated way of destroying human waste in his bulding.He sents his shit into the shit dimension.
>>28259853I suggested it too much earlier. We are dating a master thief.
>>28259855Switching to [ ] Try to sneak into the Baxter building
>>28259855Don't we have all day to do this?
>>28259865"Damn it, woman! This makes sense in context! Just help me break into a quarantined building!"
>>28259871You and me both. I'm praying he's basing his Doom off of /tg/'s DoomQuest Doom from Lucia Von Bardas.
>>28259864just make sure we have a pizza when we return to DOOM. problem solved.
>>28259865God damn it Anon, you owe me new sides!
>>28259888Yeah, but we might get caught and need time to get uncaught
>>28259860And top this off with the earlier suggestion of pizzas, assuming that we're not sneaking in through the sewers or something.>Nobody will see it coming. They'll think a superhero has been hired to act as a pizza delivery boy, when in fact we're a superhero sneaking in to act as A DELIVERMAN!
>>28259850Seconding this. We should at least ask her if she knows anything about Baxter security and whether we can get anywhere near the quarantine by going in the front door.I wonder if they realize we'll be entering as Spider-Man, who was just seen in the company of DOOM...
>>28259729Wait. Did the quarantine the entire building? It's unclear.
>>28259917... we don Black Cats outfit?
>>28259915Truly we are a master ruseman."Felicia...for reasons that would take too long to explain, I'm going to try and deliver a pizza to the baxter building as a cover for delivering a letter and spying on someone. This is related to getting you back to normal. I need you and Gwen to rescue me if I get arrested...this made so much more sense when I was at the Lateverian Embassy""Wait, Peter? What?!"
>>28259965...Actually, you make a great point. We should give Gwen a heads up that she may need to rescue us.
>>28259729sneak into the Baxter Buildingbut keep an eye out for Strange, we're going to find him after
>>28259729Seriously, did they impose quite tine on the entire building or just the medical wing?
>>28259965Let's ditch the pizza stuff.But definitely contact Felicia.I see literally no reason why we wouldn't try.
>>28260020>Seriously, did they impose quite tine on the entire building or just the medical wing?>>28259933Entire building. Reed owns it.
>>28260043Yeah...that's true. Aside from her deciding to help out, getting picked up as a mutant and thrown in a camp somewhere.Man, DOOM really implied a lot in the few minutes we were with him didn't he?
>>28260059I thought it was baxter's
>>28259965"Hey, message delivered and photography attempted, but you aren't going to believe this,""Believe what, Man of Spiders?""Sue's invisible, well, mostly invisible. You can make out faint refractions here. I got a better shot of Reed Richards and Sue's little brother,""He is mishapen, and the boy is AFLAME!""Yeah, and here's me and Ben Grimm getting hot dogs from a street vendor...oh and Sue appreciates the gesture but she's sticking it out in the Baxter building"
>>28259779Funnily enough, one of the other directions you could have chosen would have led you right to Strange.>>28259892I have not read this thing.
>>28260095And Reed owns it.Lets call Felicia and hope that Reed is not related to Freddy Jones.
>>28260059Fuck. Switching to sneaking then. Um also call Felicia because we're seriously in need of help here.
>>28260103What about the other directions? Other wizards?
>>28260103Hmm. I'm getting the vibe that this is an either or type situation then. We do DOOM's thing and we don't meet Strange, or we blow DOOM off and meet Strange, but DOOM gets super pissed.Damn, I was really hoping to meet him and give Gwen a thank you gift. Oh well maybe next time.
>>28260103Luck of the draw. At least we found the other powerful magical practitioner that was also in NYC at the time.
>>28260143Well if we call Gwen and ask her to be on deck, the Dr. Strange taping might be a good place to have her hang out at.
>>28260161We should keep her working the biology angle just in case.
>>28260143>Get Gwen thank you gift, tickets to a lecture/demonstration of Otto Octavius's neural linked prosthetics demo.>Demo goes boom, Doc Ock becomes Gwen's Nemesis.>Years later, we deal with Superior Spider-Gwen
You know our girlfriend is a master of disguise, right?Why not let her make us less conspicuous? Spider man is probably not going to be a good way to get into the building.
>Writing>Call girlfriend, sneak into building.
>>28260196But she's more into bio than engineering. She'd get more out of a Conners lecture... if Conners wasn't working for Oscorp. I hear AIM has a neat conference coming up...
>>28260208Spider-Man is probably the best way. We're popular, we're interesting. The Unassuming Peter Parker is just going to get ignored.
>>28260196...Can we just kill Doc Ock?
>>28260102>oh and Sue appreciates the gesture but she's sticking it out in the Baxter buildingI can't imagine being turned into a freak along with her brother and Ben because of Richards' science experiment has left her very happy with Reed at all. To be honest, this is probably the perfect opportunity for Doom to get Sue. She's kind of probably already on the verge of dumping his ass and this letter gives her an out since Doom is a smart enough guy to help her and the others out over relying on Richards to fix his mistakes.
>>28260209You guys will use a spectacular point if we fail, right?
>>28260224She was excited about Octavius's research
>>28260209Want a roll?
>>28260234Of course we can.
>>28259958Do you think we'd look very good, dressed in a women's skintight latex catsuit?...Actually, Peter Parker _is_ pretty skinny. The question is whether we put on a wig and pretend to be her, or put on a teeny tiny domino mask and tell everyone we're a Nightwing cosplayer?
>>28260241You know it. This is too sensitive to fuck up. I'd rather get our shit kicked in than fail this mission, in fact.
>>28260241Yes; but then we have no points to roll for the cure.Good thing we spent a point on waving to a little girl.
>>28260234And loot everything he has. We should do this for every villain we encounter.
>>28260268She had the wig for this exact reason.Do we want Spidey getting blamed for a robbery, or Black Cat?
>>28260234We're wearing Bad End Spidey's costume, doesn't mean we have to be him.
Point of Order.This wouldn't be the only universe in which an inexperienced young Spidey broke into the Baxter Building
>>28260287We're not robbing... We're a very dedicated mail delivery service.
>>28260143We can still meet Strange. He'll be in town all weekend. We deal with Doom tonight and go meet the Sorcerer Supreme tomorrow. It'll be great. He'll drop the bomb on us that we're empowered by the spider god Iktomi and then we'll go get take out.
>>28260287Or Maximum Carnage?
>>28260268nightwing cosplay might be safer, no need for her to get the blame for something unrelated.
>>28260209the call up should give us a bonus to our rolls too im betting.D'awww, and we're calling her girlfriend now.
>>28260310We're also more experienced than he was the first time he did it, whereas they're less experienced.
>>28260287The questions is does Black Cat want to be blamed for it?>>28260268It's a well documented fact that Peter has a great ass.
>>28260310Pretty much exactly this.Don't worry so much guys, this is a classic.
>>28260312Maybe even see a Ball game....my goodness...we'll be the pop celebrity of the Super Community.We keep getting seen with important people but no one knows what the hell we're doing , and Carnage is still at large.
Rolled 13 + 6>>28260322It was pretty much made official when Gwen came over.
The only difference is...we may be in trouble with Shield.
>>28260346Strange isn't a Mets fan, is he?
>>28260364If it wins us points with DOOM, that small risk is very worth it.
>>28260382I think so.

You pull out your phone and quickly dial Felicia’s number. After a few moments of hearing her fumble around, she finally answers. “Hello? Peter? Sorry about that. I have to use the damn speaker phone!”Yeah, she seems a little annoyed. “Soooo, I’m following a lead on the curse. But I have to break into the Baxter Building to complete this quest. Any advice?”There’s a few moments of silence. “What.”“I need to sneak into the Baxter Building.”“The place quarantined because of SPACE RADIATION.”Her voice is flat and you hear a slight sounds of a hiss in her voice. “Yes?”You hear her take a deep breath. Then another. “Try the roof. Most skyscrapers don’t think too much about their roof security because its nigh impossible to climb. Other than that, it’s owned and maintained by one of the smartest people on the planet. Expect a lot of security systems, but considering the quarantine, I wouldn’t expect any real guards.”“Thanks, Felicia.”You hear her let out a sigh. “Yeah. You’re lucky you’re cute and funny or else I’d kick your ass for stressing me like this.”“Love you too, bye.”“Maybe I'll kick your ass juuuust a little bit....”Hanging up after she does, you sigh and get closer to the Baxter Building. Getting in and out of there will requires all of your skill and cunning.>Roll me a stealth check. 1d20+9, DC 24.
>>28260405Should have gone South. The Sanctum is in SoHo.I know Peter likes the Mets, even if he's not huge into sports.

>20, Spectacular point! Automatic success!You spend a moment limbering up as you recall of you’re your science lessons because that building is covered in damn windows. There’s no way you’re climbing that thing. Remembering the elasticity of your webbing, you use it to make a slingshot for yourself, mentally double-checking the math before releasing it and sending yourself flying into the air upwards and towards the top of the Baxter building. As you near the top, you web two different places on the roof and use it to pull you in, before spraying a bunch of webbing to act as a giant net.As you get off of your webbing, you look at your webshooters. Still plenty of cartridges, but you could really take the time to improve your webshooters sometime. With more additions and modifications, you could do a lot more with them.Heading over to the door, you turn the doorknob, which opens. Wow. They didn’t even lock the door. However, Aunt May didn’t raise a fool. So, instead of walking down, you wall climb instead, dodging security systems that would doubtlessly catch normal people.Still, there’s a residential section, if you recall correctly, on the ninth, tenth, and eleventh floors, a medical lab on the twelfth, and the lower floors are normally offices, all closed thanks to the quarantine.
