Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green, mutant va – Ow!Ouch. Man, your head hurts. It takes a moment for your thoughts to catch up to you, swooping down into your head. You hit the ground hard, your assorted layers of puffy winter wear preventing you from ending up peppered with cuts – but only just. You can feel your skin breaking out in bruises where various assortments of rubble push up at your ribs. A sharp crack fills the air, followed by a yelp and a burst of unrecognizable gibberish (read: Spanish), and the sound of someone landing in a heap closer to the tent. Groaning, you pull yourself up, and are treated to an ebbing vision of a small, hooded mutant trying to untangle himself from the flattened remains of his tent, that surprisingly huge (seriously, it must be almost as tall as he is, and probably thicker than your arm at the base) tail thrashing spastically at mostly air. Laura has popped out from behind her cover, but is standing off to the side, a single, curved blade protruding from the soft flesh between her knuckles. “Are you alright, John?” >[ ] “Kinda dizzy.”>[ ] “I’m fine.” >[ ] Jump that little thief he hit you with his tail man. >[ ] Try to calm the thief down. >[ ] Try to help untangle him.>[ ] Write in.

When JJ was 12, how tall was Joyce?What are JJ's hobbies or skill? Like in Princess Guard Quest, the MC is also good at drawing rather than just swordsmanship. I was thinking singingYou might want to look at the discussion in the archived thread. We agreed JJ would like cigarettes and occasional booze.I totally see Creeper's real appearance as either just Ralph Fiennes or an amalgam of him and Tim Curry.In thread #10, is Joyce saying "alala" or "ahaha"?
>>28361419Fuck persuasion, take of your hood and glasses JJ.
>>28361461That holds little weight considering the thread had ended at that point.
>>28361458the 20s are always late
>>28361454I can just see it, JJ's trying to talk him down as he gets ready to cut him loose, but walking towards the guy with hands spread and claws out isn't very calming.
>>28361361I can tell, is the lizard enjoying that?
>>28361461JJ doesnt have the money to feed a nicotine addiction.
>>28361461I don't see JJ drinking or smoking considering he is a poor teenager.
>>28361534>>28361524and the pyrophobia
>>28361520It is enjoying it. In the full video it turns on it's back to get a bellyrub when it saw the owner's hand coming.
>>28361412Grow a tail and return the favor?
>>28361595but then we'd have to buy new, baggier pants!
>>28361435>10>JJ continues to be a crack bitch“I’m fine.” You grunt. You don’t feel any blood running where it shouldn’t be, so things are pretty gravy, far as you’re concerned. One side of your face feels like someone hit it with a giant floppy paddle, but the hurt is quickly draining away. You edge a little closer, stepping around one the outcroppings of rubble that you’re pretty lucky not to have landed on, raising your hands in a declaration of nonviolence. “Hey, look, I’m not gonna hurt you…” You find yourself interrupted by the sound of fabric tearing, your thief apparently getting tired of wrestling with his tent. He grasps around desperately for something before abruptly giving up, staring up at you for a second until – CRA-SNAP! He vanishes in a ripple of warbling air. A moment later, his silhouette reappears a few meters away, further on into the ruins. >[ ] Run after him. >[ ] Don’t bother.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Run after him. “Hey!” You push through the rubble, feet pounding over random flecks of junk and strips of metal wiring. You can’t keep up a good pelt without picking up a few bruises – something sticking out here, something protruding there; the place is just too dense. “Hey, I’ve still got your”–You make it within a few feet before he vanishes again, the accompanying rush of air almost tipping you over – luckily, the dense environment means lots of random crap to right yourself with. You hear him pop back into existence a little to your right and bolt after him.“I’ve still got your bag, kid!” With grace much like your own, he bounds up an awkwardly-leaning pillar, his palms clearly adhering to the crumbling surface. He throws himself backward and CRA-SNAP! A wave of hot air rolls over you, and you realize immediately that he’s appeared over your head. You feel the bag in your hand suddenly jerked back as he digs his fingers into it, landing behind you and pulling with all his might (plus, you guess, the inertia of that rather marvellous flip). >[ ] Pull back.>[ ] Let him have it.>[ ] Just, like, fall on him. >[ ] Write in.

>[X] Just, like, fall on him.Well, he’s basically pulling you over anyway. So you just let it happen and come down on him like a sack of bricks. Or, at the very least, a sack of low-fat sugar alternatives.He lets out a thoroughly unmanly squeal as the two of you drop to the ground, your back flat against his. His tail lashes out, but it seems to be running mostly on auto-pilot, doing little other than disturbing a whole lotta dust. In the half-light, you notice that it has a sort of weird, translucent gauze on the end, like a fin or something, the dusk occasionally lighting it up into a sheet of orangey-red.

>>28362506Well shit. This can only get worse. Bet the kids steals our pack of pictures.
>>28362506I don't think there's been a ruling on it from him actually.no precedent either way to my recollection.
>Reminds you a little of a Bunsen bur-why do we know/care so much about science?are we like a sleeper agent but with science?
I find it hard to believe that we actually strangled a fucking demon.
>>28362605Because Bunsen burners smell like gas and fire, and we're a little sensitive to the latter. Also, plot hook.But mostly we're having a fire induced panic attack and probably would have stranded ourself in hell if we'd critfailed (so close).
>>28362520Evidently the universe disagrees. We must go pay for the gloves we took or return them. It is the only way to make our lizard luck return
>>28362650We had really good modifiers.
>>28362650Yeah, we're rapidly undoing any self esteem gains made in that whole episode. What can I say, the universe wants JJ to hate himself for his inadequacies.

>>28362650Somewhere in an alternate universe, somebody was playing "Orphanage Demon Quest" and rolled natural 1 against a homeless intruder.
>>28362774That does not preclude it from being a weak ass demon as demons go. Though I agree the JJ's aptaken a few levels in suck since then due to the dice.

You feel nothing but a tumbling, veering sensation, like you’ve gone and hurtled dropped down through a long, dark tunnel, and the light and the end has long since vanished. You turn around. You flail. You soar over Lake Michigan. You try to cover your ears and block out the terrible, constant rushing, the roaring of tides against ages, but you have nothing to grasp, and nothing to grasp with. –AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!The light and the sound and the cold assault you all at once, and a second later, you feel that other, oft-overlooked constant, gravity, and the ground comes rushing up to meet you. You shut your eyes and guard your face, and not a second too soon – you hit the ground hard, the impact squeezing the air from your lungs. It was just a meter or two, just –You suck in air and struggle to right yourself, your ears still ringing. Where are you? You’re, you’re nearby, you guess? You’re still in the complex. Something rustles above you, and you glance up. Hanging-upside down from the ceiling, bare feet clinging to the concrete, your thief is rifling through their rucksack, a desperate glint in his eyes. He – he must’ve teleported, with you along for the ride. You must've appeared up there are just, just... dropped.

>>28363239I'm guessing we were a very sick child, but dad found a way to make us better (maybe that friend from work had something to do with it). Maybe that cure was a therapeutic treatment derived from our sister, maybe it was purely synthetic, but it turns out it had...side effects.

>>28363481What if she was Dad?!?
>[X] Tell him you’ve got his journal. >[X] Tell him you’re not here to hurt him.You can pretty much guess what he’s looking for.As you dig through your jacket, the kid becomes increasingly more agitated in his attempts to wring something out of that rucksack, his claws scoring long, jagged tears into the stained fabric. At first he seems to slow down, tensing his fingers, but the lull doesn’t last. It seems he can’t get his claws in. Feeling your fingers close around the diary, you drag it out, holding it up for him to see. With your other hand, you ease off your glasses, taking a second to adjust to the new light. “Looking for this?” He freezes, seeming to collapse a little inward, almost balling up protectively. His eyes dart from you to the raggedy little book, and then back again, skirting around your outline as if trying to pull some secret from you. “You speak English? I’m not gonna hurt you. I just”– The tail snaps out with surprising speed, that weird, half-visible gauze folding around the diary, wrenching it out of your grasp. It swings back up over his head and transfers it into his waiting hands. Hand, actually – one of them is caught in the remains of his bag. He struggles briefly to disentangle his claws before apparently just giving up. His gaze returns to you, one part suspicious and one part desperate. “My pictures.” He has a slight, quiet voice. His accent is clearly Mexican, but his pronunciation is actually surprisingly deft. “Where are my pictures?” >[ ] “Well, technically, those are my pictures.” >[ ] “I’ve got them too.”>[ ] Pull them out.>[ ] Write in.

>>28363566>>28363527>>28363524I don't think we should pull them out, in case he does another tail snag. But if we let him know we have them and are willing to give them back, he should chill and answer some questions.
>>28363767true, he has been tail first, questions later
>>28363816Yeah, our maybe-relative has been rude like that.
>[X] “Well, technically, those are my pictures.” >[X] Pull them out.“Well…” You begin, still fighting back the urge to cough. “Technically, those are my pictures.” He looks you up and down again, his posture shifting subtly, opening up a little. Maybe he’s about to spring off, maybe not. You reach into your coat pocket and pull out the photos, sifting them around in your grasp. His tail twitches, preparing to flash out, but you pull back your hand, keeping it out of his range. If he’s gonna run, he’s gonna have to pry those pictures out of your hands first. Keeping his eyes on you, he rubs his hands together, kneading his fingers into the gaps between their opposites. His tongue flicks out, licking his lips – and most of his nose – nervously. “You… you are him, then?” He’s looking at you like you’re a UFO. Or Bigfoot. “You are, er, you are Doctor Green’s son?” Something moves in the corner of your eye, and he coils up instantly, retreating a few paces across the ceiling, his claws flexing.

Rolled 12, 19, 7, 16, 6, 2, 10, 7, 1, 2 = 82Let's see what the mood of the dicegods is.
>>28364255It would have started as basically fear-gas farts. Our current power set is better.
>>28364244>>28364264>>28364265It was all to chance. I could have just as easily rolled a 1. Remember, everyone who has ever crit failed at a critical juncture has also critically succeeded at one as well.Like the double rider kick roll that was two separate 18's on a 2d20 roll.
>>28364278>average 8.2slighly less than ambivalent
>>2836427882/200 is abysmal...the dice is trying to kill us. we must accquire karma and avoid rolling as much as possible today also Crusty, Does JJ's eyes look like this?
>>28364288Yea, but it was more of a remark to the fact how horribly we seem to fuck up in social interactions. Even with 5 levels on adhesive touch, we can still not prevent the spaghetti from falling.
>>28364288>JJ drops spaghetti>causes entire crowd to drop spaghetti
These last few threads have been abysmal dice wise.Shit is getting depressing.
>>28364372You now realize that the reason why people drop spaghetti is because invisible lizard elves make them drop the spaghetti.
>>28364428why is JJ at Gamestop so much?
>>28364428...shit, that's actually a sound argument FOR getting pheromone powers.
>>28364477but if get pheromone powers, everyone will start questioning if they actually like us or its pheromones
>>28364518Well, except Laura and Logan since they can tell when we're using 'em and when we aren't...
>>28364518Ah, but then we'll prove our pheromones only cause spaghetti to drop, not pants.
>>28364518"Don't worry, it's definately the pheromones."
>>28364278Wow. That's one 1 and two 2s.
>[X] “Everybody calm down.”>[X] “My dad was a doctor, I guess.”“Whoa, whoa, okay…” You put your hands up in the air, like you care very very much, about multiple things. Like not getting into yet another super-brawl and losing this… this small Mexican miracle. “…Nobody’s gonna… jump on anyone.” You glance meaningfully toward Laura, whose knees are in optimum jumping-on-somebody position. “Everybody calm down.” Please, please Laura. You need this. You need this. The thief hisses quietly, his claws rubbing their way in and out of his fingertips, but he doesn’t make a move. He clearly wants to – or part of him, does, anyway - but he doesn’t. He just shuffles in place, constantly switching, ever so slightly, from one foot to the other, kept adhered to the ceiling by little more than his toes. Laura answers you with a long, unconvinced stare, but eventually shuts her eyes in a demonstration of comprise, her claws slowly edging their way back under her skin. For a moment you just breathe. All the adrenaline crowding up the air is getting to you. You swallow, and allow yourself a few short, quiet coughs. “My… my dad was a doctor, I guess.” You guess. What he was a doctor of eludes you. As far as you remember, he was a doctor of shutting himself in his study for days and coming out looking like someone owed him something. This stuff… all this was a long time ago. “I wasn’t…” The thief licks his lips again, eyes flicking between you and Laura. “I wasn’t sure it was you. I was, honestly, I was hoping… not.”His eyebrows fall, and you think you see, under the shadow of his hood, a pair of floppy, overly-large ears flattening downwards (technically upwards). “You’re not a doctor like him, are you?” >[ ] “I don’t even know what kind of doctor he was.”>[ ] “Do I look like I make doctor money?” >[ ] “No. I’m not.”>[ ] Write in.

>>28364659we have cateyes neat
>>28364658This, pretty much.
>>28364638No. I've been on the streets more or less since I was 14. Look, I'm looking for my sister. I haven't seen her in a long...if you managed to track me down do you know if she survived that night?
>>28364638>[ ] “I don’t even know what kind of doctor he was.”The science kind? Probably some kind of biology, since we knew about some genetics stuff and how Laura's cloning is weird science.

I sell newspapers and newspaper accessories

"I sell newspapers and strangle demons."
>>28364853In that order.But seriously, have we still NOT taken off our shades yet?
>>28364893I'm more surprised they've stayed on the entire time>we have magic shades that never come off
>>28364931They only come off after a dramatic pun.
>>28364959or after a blood sacrifice, like that matron in the orphanage.
>>28364981maybe she said a pun with her dying breath
>[X] “Do I look like I make doctor money?” >[X] Write in.Well…Well, no, you’re not a doctor and you don’t make lots of K’s per year and you don’t have a nice coat or a nice car. Thanks for the reminder. You can only imagine what a disappointment you’d be to your father were he not too dead to ever know. Big time science guy one generation, making theories, mixing chemicals, attending fancy dinner parties where everyone wears a bowtie, to homeless mutant living in a burnt-out apartment block, handing out papers mostly about screaming at Spider-Man. But then again, you always do remember him looking kinda washed-out and raggedy, so maybe he was a fluke and being a total shit runs in the family after all. Maybe he was just better at fighting it. Maybe he was just tougher. You remember him sort of explaining to you that his parents were, like, super fundies or something, and they basically kicked him out on his ass (and, he went on, that’s why they’re never at Thanksgiving or Christmas). Maybe life toughened him up early and he was just better at rolling with the punches. Urgh… “Kid, are you serious?” You can’t help but squint at him, as if he’s said something so ridiculous that you have to affirm that it actually came out of his mouth. He bites his lip, almost pleadingly. “Do I look like I make doctor money?”Slowly, he shakes his head. “I… I should maybe go. I was hoping that, that if Doctor Green”– You hate that. You can’t help it. You hate the reverence of that title, like he’s announcing the name of some king or something. He was just a guy, he was called Joshua, he had no sense of direction and he always ate the last of the cereal –“’s son was alive, he would be a doctor, and you could, er… fix me.” Fix? Fix him? >[ ] “What do you mean by that?”>[ ] “Do you need a doctor?” >[ ] “How do you know my father?”>[ ] Write in.

>>28365194>>28365235We try to take off our glasses again, like some sort of crazy hobo.
>>28365239It's probably either 1. Can't control powers, please fix me2. Don't want to be a mutant, please fix meBased on the info we have and it's fairly obvious it's probably one of the two.That is, unless he actually has some disease.
>>28365399Yeah, I'm kind of worried that he's dying from whatever dad gave him.
>>283653992 most likelybeing part otter is sufferinghe wants to shed his humanity and be with the other otters
Does JJ have a lumberjack beard or scraggly face pube beard?Also what kind of sunglasses does he wear?
>>28365267We put the glasses back on, just to take them off again while emphasizing our doubletake.
>>28365467Stolen gas station aviators and scraggly pube face I'd imagine
>>28365467I expect it started as a scraggly pube face, but now that we have Healing lv.2 pulling us out of malnutrition I expect it's starting to fill in and look less horrible.
>[X] “What do you mean by that?”>[X] “How do you know my father?”“What do you mean by that?”He looks at you with an almost blank, opaque air about him – you feel, suddenly, that the tables have turned, and you’re the one stating the obvious. After a moment of dumbfounded staring, he narrows his eyes, turning them into slits of bright, angry blue. “Isn’t… is it not obvious?” He holds out his hands, demonstrating his clawed digits. His tail swings lazily from one side to the other, as if waving. “Look at me. He made it go away before, he could, I thought maybe his son could… do it again.” You grimace. This is ridiculous, and… it’s posing questions you’re not sure you like. “How do you know my father? Why could he help?” In a blur, he detaches from the ceiling, twisting about to land on his feet. You can’t help but step back slightly. “When I was young, back in Mexico, I had, um…” He licks his lips again, his eyes darting to and fro, seeking out the right words. “I had this appearing, and, I was very ill. I had a… a brain sickness. Doctor Green worked with us, me and the other orphans. He was with a company; he had a treatment that he was testing, something to help my brain. It was important to test it on, ah… people… like…” He glances to and fro, as if he’s about to give voice to some grave sin. “…devil people, like us. It helped me, my brain got better, and my…” He stares down at his hands. “…This, this went away. But then it came back, and I just… I went looking… I thought…” He trails off.>[ ] “How did you even get here?”>[ ] “What company was he working for?”>[ ] “You’re not a ‘devil person’.”>[ ] Write in.

>>28365777Yeah, there's some chemical/hormone bees (and I assume whatever we're looking at there) secrete when it's time to swarm. It basically tells them to stop stinging things, among other things.
>>28365777They're not agitated, his hand didn't suffer damage.

>[X] “What company was he working for?”>[X] “You’re not a ‘devil person’.”“You’re not a ‘devil person’.” You say, hastily. That whole deal there makes you uncomfortable. Especially considering your near-demon-encounter – an encounter still quite fresh and vivid in your memory. The kid smiles vaguely, but briefly. “Doctor Green said the same.” He’s wringing his fingers now, as if he has to squeeze some kind of tension out of them. “That made me feel better, even though I knew he was lying.” Right. Okay. You guess… this guy is pretty set on being the spawn of Satan. You shift the awkward subject aside. “What company was he working for?” As far as you know, your dad was… freelance, or something. Can scientists be freelancers? Is that a science-compatible thing? He chirps up, prodding the air with a clawed finger. “Yes, um… I know that.” He hisses quietly, biting his lip. “It was, uh… they were called ROXXON. ROXXON Energy.”Well... you know who they are. They're people with lots of money. They do oil or something.He stares at you for a moment, licking his lips. Finally, he speaks, his voice wavering, like’s wringing it out of a sponge. “You can’t help me, can you?” He’s smiling now, but not happily – it’s the smile of someone who is steadily easing their hands off the steering wheel, and just acknowledging, finally, that the tide is supreme over their course. His eyes stare through you, out beyond the patches of reddening sky, into nothing. “I’m going to be this for the rest of my life.”>[ ] “Probably.”>[ ] “Look… let’s just get you out of this dump.” >[ ] “At least you don’t have an unspecified brain disease.”>[ ] Write in.

Summary for Archive: JJ rolls like a crack bitch AGAIN, before making a new Mexican otter friend?
We all have things we wish we could change about ourselves. Even the flatscans.
>>28365987She can be Gray-scale She-Hulk.
Something about JJ makes me think of him as a mutant, hobo, magic-less, version of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden.
>Roxxontime for conspiracy board?we could use a hobby. Maybe make one for Laura as a Christmas gift?
>>28365987Not really? It's not like she's hurting herself, though the potential sensory deprivation/muting would suck.
>>28366035Confirmed for non-smoking. Besides, even if we were doing rollies it'd still be too damn expensive a habit for a JJ level hobo. And it'd cripple our stealth.
>>28366056>And it'd cripple our stealth.Like we'd sneak around with a cig in our mouth.Plus I think it might be an occasional thing, like a little treat for himself if he does a really good job or is in a good position.
>>28366083But even that is pretty lame.And too damn expensive.
>>28365906>>[ ] “Probably.”>>[ ] “Look… let’s just get you out of this dump.”
>>28366083I just can't see it. JJ is too young and tobacco is too expensive and really not that good. If he'd be smoking anything, chances are it would be a joint since he was working for a drug smuggling ring.
>>28366158Young Male Lizard Elf taking a huge bong hit.I can see it.
>>28366083>>28366099pyrophobiamoney woessensesjust not feasible. Maybe evil goatee JJ from the anti matter universe. JJ lighting one up still pops up in my imagination too, but it just don't fit homie
>>28365948this but bud should be bub
>>28366192then again Wolverine smokes all the time so senses argument goes but the other two still stand.Laura's probably a smoker. Its in her genes
>>28366056>>28366083>>28366158What does this have to do with Harry Dresden?>>28366192Although if those comments were referring to Constantine, yeah, okay. I don't know anything about Constantine though. Which is why I referenced the Dresden Files instead.
>>28366238JJ needs to try and smoke to impress Laura at some point. Even if it's just the teenage "can't puss out in front of a girl" mindset.
>>28366280We get a cigar and try to be all badass with it and fail. Laura comes over, snips the end with her claws like a pro, lights it with her claws like a boss and then sticks it in our mouth like we're five.
I propose JJ take up the hobby of acoustic guitar playing. We should buy a sheep one from the pawn shop and use it to play for tips.
>>28366280>Smoke to impress girl>Smoke to impress girl that didn't grow up with the perception that smokers are coolShe'd be more impressed if we killed something, moreso if that something is currently a problem for her at the moment.
>>28366328Exactly. And after his puff, he starts coughing like hell.
>>28366280JJ needs money to buy food and camping equipment so his hobo family will not go hungry and cold.
>>28366238>"Noriko! I need you to light this refuse pile aflame with your powers.">Okay. any particular reason?">"I need to inhale the smoke.">"Why?!?">".....I do not know."
>>28366280Laura would snort, whip a cigar out of nowhere, slice one end off, light up and start blowing smoke rings around our head before we could even begin to react. You can't impress Logan or Laura by smoking. You die first (inferior healing factor).Also, am I the only one sketched out by the fact that this kid apparently activated his x-gene before puberty? Something's odd about that.
>[X] “Look… let’s just get you out of this dump.” >[X] Write in.You exchange glances with Laura. She simply stands aside, an immobile shadow under the dying light, her expression an impermeable, constant island, far away and circled by deep green oceans. You wonder if she is simply doing nothing, or if she doesn’t know what to do. Either way, she leaves it to you, reminding you that, despite her apparent confidence, she is just as much an incomplete being as yourself. Possibly more.You turn back toward the kid, and step forward, holding out your hand. He stares at it through distant, undone eyes. “Look… let’s just get you out of this dump. I’m JJ.” “I – I know.” He interjects. “Jonathan. I visited your hometown, looking for your father.” “Oh. Right.” That’s kind of creepy, actually. All this time, there was this… person… following the trail of your father’s ashes. And where they gather, apparently, is at your feet. Which… which means… “Well, okay. This girl is Laura, she’s cool.” …He probably has no leads on your sister. He went after you, after all. Not her. The kid nods nervously. Slowly, he reaches out, and you feel the sleek, soft warmth of fur against your palm. He’s got… kinda pads, or something, too. It reminds you of dog feet, sort of. “What’s your name?” “It’s Gaby, Gaby Alvarez.” You start walking out into the dusk. It’s not too far. “Gaby. That’s short for Gabriel, right?” “Um, no. Gabriella.” -------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 25: END>Congratulations! Reaching a pivotal point in JJ’s story has earned you an X-Point! X-Points can be used to buy new mutations or upgrade existing ones!>Congratulations! You rolled one good roll! >Congratulations! ROXXON! HMQ could possible return tomorrow, but it’s not too likely.

>>28366376I think we're either the template for a genetic experiment (like they're trying to reverse engineer something from us) or we're the result of one.We're lab buddies with Laura! YAY!
>>28366238She wouldn't be a smoker unless she smoked. If she avoided smoking altogether, she's not going to magically stop smoking. People with smoker genes just can't quit once they've taken one.
So JJ was in the swim team in middle school and he's a pretty good cook. I say we vote on one additional skill/hobby to round out the character.>guitar or other musical instrument>pool player>woodworking>card tricks>creative writing>photography>astronomy
>>28366398>“Um, no. Gabriella.”ouch

Or her "dad"?>>28366356He bums a smoke from Logan. When we finally meet. >>28366376Well it's not like we'd try to out-smoke them (do people even do that with tobacco?)
>>28366415I like Musical Instrument, pool player, photography or astronomy.>>28366398I think we should bank it.
>>28366415>>photographywe did have that desire to take pictures of Spider-man earlier in the thread
>>28366415I'm voting for Musical instrument, Harmonica
>>28366415>musical instrumentor>pool playerGet my vote
>>28366398Bank that point. That way we will have a nice amount to do stuff with eventually.
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 Lvl2>Electrostatic Touch Lvl2TERTIARY POWERS:>Enhanced Strength Lvl2>Healing Factor Lvl2You have two points 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.
>>28366398No wonder she wanted to have her mutation "fixed".
>>28366415actually, card tricks or magic tricks in general would seem pretty balling.
>>28366452I say either Bank or we roll for what we get.
>>28366398>are you a filthy girl hobo, or a stinky boy hobo?
>>28366398So this one's a girl?

Okay. Right. Post, >1 for Enhanced Strength>2 for Electrostatic Touch>3 for Enhanced Agility>4 to BankRemember, ONLY POST THE NUMBER. Post anything other than the number - a roll, greentext, quoting this post - and the vote is discarded. REMEMBER.
>>28366590>we roll for instrument>get accordion
>>28366566Oh? How hard would it be to rapidly raise someone's intracranial bp by blocking drainage? Or just simulating a stroke by causing masses of blood cells to adhere to each other? Pretty sure we don't need much precision for that, just skin contact.
>>28366590Pretty sure you shouldnt just decide what we're good at on you're own.
>>28366655post only the number, do not link the post.
>>28366655Votes that link to the vote are not counted.
>>28366573Wait... LET'S START A HOMELESS BAND! And we'll solve mysteries too! And start our CloneDate website!
>>28366635I know which is why I proposed a vote way back here>>28366415
Voting closed. Tallyan.Also, thread archived.
I refuse to play another game that turns into a rockstar game.We were supposed to be future tech samurai dammit.
>>28366689Laura shreds guitar...it's no longer functional.
>>28366717Still won't be counted.
"DO YOU EVEN LIFT?"
>>28366727YESSSS.But what if we do a homeless blues/jazz band?
Looks like Enhanced Strength takes it. Congrats. You guys are swole now. Inside, if not outside.I'll be around for a while to answer questions. Also, there may be another, different vote in a minute...
>>28366758No. Because I don't need to.-Molly Hayes
God lift the queen
>>28366758well, strength won, so we don't need to now!
If the next thread isn't tomorrow, would it be on Wednesday or Thursday?
>>28366614>the invisiblesNo fuck off with that shit
>>28366769Then we force her to use a damn slide and not play with her claws! Adamantium strings are way out of our budget.
>>28366415Okay guys. By popular request, post, >1 for Musical Instrument>2 for Pool Player>3 for Card Tricks & Gambling>4 for PhotographySame rules as usual. Nothing but the number.
>>28366773Please tell me we are having an official hobby vote.
>>28366801Thursday is more likely. I tend to be super busy of Wednesdays.
After doing this for two months of hard training, I realized something. I had become strong and also I turned into a lizard.
>>28366845Don't we already play piano? Did I just make that up or is it a thing?
>>28366900Holy shit one punch man is so good
We make the chello our bitch.
>>28366935Yes, but my grammar is shit.
>>28366900also has anyone actually tried doing this for a year?
>>28366921Holy shit, you're right. Excuse me while I go throw myself out a window.
>>28366773Now we just need Laura to teach us how to fight and we're ready to fuck shit up
>>28366921>>28366989When did that happen?
>>28366989Well, this vote was rather useless.
>>28366989Wait... when was this?
>>28366921It was a suggestion. Don't know if you're the anon that suggested it, but it was never fully chosen.
>>28367001Nah, we just change all our votes to air guitar.
>>28366995>>28367008I did very briefly mention that JJ's mom made him sit down for piano lessons. I'm actually surprised anyone remembered it. Even I forgot, and I have it written down.
>>28366238I'd sure like to be in her genesIf you know what I mean
>>28366989Sorry, I just thought that was one of JJ's tragic traits, that he was a decent play that actually liked the piano, and has no real way in hell of getting his hands on one first because hobo and now because Noriko would probably fry any keyboard we stole. I don't know, it just made me feel more sympathetic towards the kid so I liked it...
>>28367040But we'd just stretch them out if we tried them on
>>28367035Huh. Well then.What kind of piano playing? Are we a jazzy or classical lizard-elf?
>>28367035so much for JJ Green master violinist
>>28367061I say classical.And Photography, nigga!
>>28367061Jazzy, gotta be jazzy.
>>28367061Mama wanted beethovenwe wanted http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPmruHc4S9Q>>28366989we did want to take pictures of Spider-man and it was the 2nd most popular pick.....
>>28367059its ok she would heal
>>28367074If you know how to play the piano, it's not a stretch to play any other stringed instrument.Just got to get the muscle memory down.
>>28367061Probably a good foundation in technique and some classical work, he probably would just have been at the right age to start learning the blues when all that shit went down and he no longer had a piano, but JJ was sure playing the blues.
>>28367052It kinda is. I just totally forgot today. >>28367061Considering that you were originally pushed into it by your mom's desire for you to be an overachiever, you almost certainly know more classical than anything else.I... will run another vote. Just as soon as I shrug off the shame of this most unbefitting incident.
>>28367035>>28367052With strength lvl 2 couldn't we carry (steal) a small piano?
>>28367061He was taught classical, but prefers jazz.
>>28367117don't worry Crusty, it happens
>>28367129we lift 2-3 tons son!Scour the scar for a piano!
>>28367129We could carry multiple large pianos.
>>28367129Easily, it's 2-3 tons of lift
>>28367157I thought rank 2 was up to 10 tons.Did it change?
>>28367117heck, man, I can't remember where I left my keys half the time. Don't worry about it.
On next episode, we will find a submerged gentlemen's club that has it's entrance blocked by boulders. We push the boulders aside and make our new haven in there with piano, pool tables and a bar.
I swear to fuck next time we can choose a new power there better be wings
>>28367129Yeah, but can our home support the weight?Also, can we get a can of spray foam and use our heat vision to seal and drafty bits of our apartment? Seems like an easy way to make it harder to spot us with a thermal imager and it'll make everyone more comfy at night.
>>28367188Nope, power locked, maybe when we conquer fire and become le dragon.
>>28367174Yea, it was misunderstanding. Outlaw tier strenght was registered 10 tons in marvel wiki, which was apparently incorrect.
>>28367174It was never 10 tons. That was just an assumption based on the marvel database. You can comfortably lift 1.5 tons and strain to lift 2 tons. If you're prepared to put your wellbeing at serious risk you can push it to 3 tons.Either way, a piano is smalltime.
>>28367202>and become le dragon.We inherit Phoenix Force
>>28367129Come to think of it our first order of buisness tomorrow should be finding furniture and beds for everyone. The reason we only have one couch and bed is because we got tired and didn't want to carry more up. This could be how JJ finds out he is stronger now.
>>28367117As the one that brought the piano thing up, don't sweat it. I tend to remember weird details and forget legitimately useful information all the time, so you're doing better than me at least.
>>28367202I said when we can choose a NEW powernot improve an pre-existing one
Okay guys FOR REAL THIS TIME.>1 for Astronomy>2 for Pool Player>3 for Card Tricks & Gambling>4 for PhotographySame rules as usual. Nothing but the number.
>>28367206Well darn, guess we'll have to go for level 3, still, that's small car level right there.>>28367221My bad.
>>28367221Who knows, crusty might put a choice in front of us at some point, forcing us to choose between physical changes, some being more noticeable than others.
>>28367195That is a pretty good idea. I mean, as hobos, our current digs are cozy as all hell even with a draft, but we ARE living it up...
Everybody got a massive boner for photography.
>>283672362 & 3 seem like things he could've picked up working for Creeper. (Not a vote)
>>28367272My reasoning, if we ever get lost in the wilderness somewhere, we got that shit.
>>28367212>>28367258Yeah, spray on foam insulation is super common, but it's pretty technical as well. You need a fair amount of equipment and the insulation itself.Could be worth it sending Kevin down to a home depot and score some fiberglass sheeting and turn one room into a bedroom for everyone, though.
>>28367292That was basically my thought as well, though we might still be screwed in the southern hemisphere.
>>28367236why is everyone picking 4? That's parkers shtick. Or are we trying to take his job?
>>28367309Might have been book learning.
>>28367286HNNNG OH MY GOD, color negatives give me such a rager.
>>28367292I just think it's a sciencey hobby Dad could've bonded with us when we were little.
Voting closed. Tallyan.
>>28367330It seems like they are despite the fact that it's a really shitty job.
>>28367331Yeah, but the DC's still going to be around 18.
>>28367351Or they want to bond with peter even though he takes those pictures of spiderman for a paper which hates him. May seriously crap our spider bonding.
Looks like you guys are a crack shot... with a camera.
>>28367377JJ doesn't even know Parker is a photographer.All we know is that he's an intern at the Bugle.
>>28367380What an incredibly boring hobby. Oh well, if such is the will of the majority...
>>28367286Macro photo taken Wide angle >instant photography boner
>>28367380Can we be artsy camera then?
>>28367395>not aware of reconnaissance/Intelligence gathering capabilities
>>28367393He's not even a photographer in this universe. He gave in a few pictures and got practically swindled out of them, then lucked into a tech support internship. He fixes their stuff and stops their website from constantly crashing.
Gentlemen, we have our JJ Noir soundtrackhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKd2-iVsvJk&hd=1http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mi3UXfCfLvk&hd=1
>>28367395Have you seen our tumblr? We take some very artistic photos of food, all set to the latest Ulforgornin CD. Haven't heard of them? Yeah, they are pretty underground.It's specialsnowflakelizard on tumblr
Best instrument reporting inhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGQLXRTl3Z0
>>28367428So I guess we can take photos of spiderman and get paid for it?
>>28367400Photography is as interesting as collecting stamps from my point of view. I never understood what's interesting about it.
>>28367443That looks like Rafi from The League.>http://youtu.be/Eea17bUWUB4?t=6s
>>28367428>"Parker! My computer isn't working! Fix it now!">"Um.. have you tried plugging it in Mr. Jameson?">"....Good work Parker.Keep it up and you might have a future, PROVIDED THAT WALL CRAWLING MENACE DOESN'T KILL US ALL FIRST!!!"
>>28367428Maybe photography wasn't such a bad idea.
>>28367461I don't understand how you have that bad of an opinion.Cameras are the fucking shit. The new Sony SLT A77 and A99 are so nice, goddamn. And the NEX series is off the heezy. I must sound like a sony shill, but goddamn, their stuff is way above what Canon and Nikon are doing right now.Except for lenses, maybe. Sony's 18(ish, I forget)-200(250?) is really bad compared to Canon and Nikon equivalents/similar.
>>28367485Turn off the flash and think of all the pictures we could take while invisible!
>>28367455Sure. Note that Jameson basically went "Crap crap crap" through Parker's pics, and then gave him like $50 for one of them.
>>28367526This is straight from USM, by the way.
>>28367526But take pictures of mutant oppression and heroism and get some bucks yeah?
>>28367506>SLT A77>digitalFUCKING DROPPED
>>28367506>Implying stamps aren't the best thing since sex
>>28367546Don't be that fucking guy, guy. Nobody's interested in your leica 35 unboxing video
>>28367545I'm sure if you could consistently get good shots of interesting or topical stuff, yeah, he'd pay you.
>Have 8MP camera phone>My wip pictures are so damn big
>>28367578You ain't seen shit until you've seen a full frame 24.2 MP RAW.
>>28367526>then gave him like $50 for one of themHoly crap! Do you know how many $1 Mcdoubles that can buy?literally dozens. Like 2 , which warrants the use of the plural of the word dozen.and you totally make a camera out of an Oatmeal container. I had to do one for a class in highschool.the problem is getting a dark room, the chemicals, and the photography paper.
>>28367566And, with our Agility, dem perspectives.
>>28367515Oh my~Such possibilties...
>>28367526There area couple of different explanations.>He is not as good a photography in this universe>Jameson has higher standards>Jameson didn't need a good photographer on the pay roll (if JJ needed more photo's he would have given Parker incentive to get more)
Why didn't people choose cards and gambling again?
>>28367703His mother probably caught him doing that once and forbade him from gambling or anything like that.
>>28367703Because photography is cooler.
>>28367631We have lvl 1 agility and Peter has like lvl 4 or 5. Peter only got $50 for one of his photos.
>>28367703'Tis a mystery, mon ami.
>>28367648Also>Its the twenty-fucking-first century and no one reads papers anymore. Plus, every fuck has a camera phone shooting shit pics all day erry day.
>>28367722That's because Parker is fucking balls at composition, framing, lighting, and everything else.There's an art to it, dog.
>>28367715He WAS working for Creeper. It stands to reason he'd pick up those hobbies while working with criminals.
>>28367703Because they don't let mutants gamble. Never know when some mutie can read minds or cheat some other way.
>>28367566We could actually get pretty artsy with invisibility. Real life photographers would kill to be able to take pictures of shoplifting and people flirting. Someone with a camera standing four feet away makes it hard to get pics of real emotion.
>>28367757But he didn't because his mother told him not to.
>>28367786>Someone with a camera standing four feet away makes it hard to get pics of real emotion.Yeah, we could sell the pics with a theme going on about the emotions and experiences during Christmas.
>>28367786You know there's this thing called telephoto lenses that do that already, right?Although some candids of Kevin and Noriko (and Luara? She can smell us though...) and Layla could be pretty adorable.
>>28367812Aren't proper cameras and equipment sort of balls expensive?
>>28367788Guess she should've mentioned something about not being a drugrunner or working for a crime boss.
>>28367849That's kind of implied.>>28367848We could steal it.
>>28367836Pheromone Manipulation + Invisibility
>>28367871I thought we were trying to be sort of a good person. I mean, we told spiderman we were not like "those people". I am fine with doing bad things, but it seems like it is sort of snowballing.Besides, do you see how the dice hate us when we do wrong?
>>28367836 >Kevin and Noriko>Kevin>>28367875>Kevinare you trying to kill our friends?
>>28367848Actually...they aren't all that expensive.For 100-200 bucks you have a generation or two old digital SLR, and old(er) Minolta lenses are super cheap. You can get a beat up Sony SLR for like 150, a few Minolta lenses for like 150 on top of that.You're not going to be doing anything really crazy macro/telephoto wise but they're gonna look really nice.
>>28367871Momma apparently didn't say"no stealing" either.
>>28367919Find one at the dump, spend a few hours for replacement parts.One hobo camera.
>>28367940It'd be a lot easier to just save the cash.
>>28367788>"No way Creeper! My mom told me never to gamble!">"But I guess she never said nothing 'bout beating up tourists for money.">Creeper's face when
>>28367958We're homeless. There are far more important things to spend that money on.
>>28367958Dont you know anon?Frankenstein cameras are obviously better than any camera on the market
>>28367986Oddly, this sounds like something young JJ would say.
>>28367986He's right though. fuck tourists>>28368022I'd wager we'd say that now
>>28367992They've got character.Maybe JJ should've had DIY projects like that as a hobby.
I'm just waiting on random product placements like my early 90's cartoons."Here you go Laura, Midol should help you calm down! ;)"
>>28368076"Kevin! Noriko! Put down those fantastic Mattel(tm) products! Laura has been kidnapped by Brand X!"oh and Crusty! Hollow Quest is running now!
>>28368076>JJ during trigger scent incident.
>>28368528he follows Azure on the twitter machinereasonable to assume I'd say
