>>28384851If they can stay invisible, and if we weren't seen leaving the Baxter Building, taking them straight to the embassy should be fine.
>>28384851>[ ]Take Johnny and Susan Storm with you to the embassy
>>28384851>>[ ]Take Johnny and Susan Storm with you to the embassy, but they are to remain invisible.As long as Sue Storm thinks she can manage.
>>28384851>>[ ]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOMFrom previous QGT:Call Felicia for a safehouse that's currently not in use.Have the Storms take refuge there for a bit.Contact Doom or head for the embassy to deliver the news of our success on the mission.Acquire the know-how/lore behind the cat curse on Felicia that Doom will impart on us in payment for our service.Broach the question to him regarding the situation with the Storm siblings and Reed afterwards.Pick them up from the safehouse if Doom approves of the action.
>>28384851>>[x]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOMCheap motel. The kind that doen't check ID or ask questions.
>>28384851>[x]Take Johnny and Susan Storm with you to the embassy
[X] Call DOOM on your way over.
>>28384851>>[ ]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOMPeter "better safe that sorry and on two governments shit lists" ParkerMaybe ask Felicia if shes got an old extra safehouse she never uses anymore
>>28384851>[ ]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOMThis (>>28384910) or cheap motel with no questions asked here (>>28384929).And put a Spider Tracker on them just in case.Hopefully, we can re-acquire the signal if it's too out of range.
>>28384851>>[ ]Write inSue would know DOOM's number. Get it from her, call him, explain the situation, then hand the phone over to Sue so she can verify our claim. We can arrange what to do once everyone's up to speed.
>>28384990This is a good idea.Duck into an ally or find the old working payphone left in lower manhattain.
>>28384851> Take Johnny and Sue to the Embassy, but they are to remain invisibleThey can decloak omce we're inside, hopefully after informing DOOM on the roof that we're brought company.Also, we need to call Felicia and Gwen and get our catgirlfriend to the embassy pronto, it's going to go into lockdown pretty soon.
>>28384990I wonder if the NSA dares to tap DOOM's lines? I wonder if DOOM allows them to...
>>28384990"Director Fury, this is Agent Coulson. We are tracking a possible voice match from an incoming call to the Latverian Embassy."It'll certainly spice things up though.
>>28384851>>[ ]Take Johnny and Susan Storm with you to the embassy, but they are to remain invisible.
To everyone wanting to bring the Storm(s) to the embassy, keep in mind SHIELD will most likely be tracking them. Or Reed at the least. Have them check for tracers.This said, we do not want to drag them to the embassy if DOOM does not will it. Also keep in mind we don't want to mix Felicia up in this.
>>28385039WELL, to be fair, SHIELD could tap into Peter's phone and find out who he, Felicia, and Gwen are if we call the Embassy, because any calls to there are probably being monitored. And the phone we have is OUR phone.I'd rather not have SHIELD and Fury waiting for us in our kitchen when we're done here.
>>28385085It's a disposable track phone, I thought.
>>28385061I think people keep forgeting that DOOM diplomatic immunity doesn't expand on the Parker boy.
>>28385047"I'm going to have to ask you to please not do that.""Do wha-"And then he punches us right in our trachea before we can react>>28385061>Checking for tracersGIVE THE MAN A PRIZE
>>28384990>Sue would know DOOM's number. Get it from her, call him.
>>28385011I want this so we can switch DOOM over to talking to Sue and see if he tries to change back to talking like a normal person instead of a supervillain. "Who dares call DOOM on his private line at this-oh, my apologies Susan, I didn't realize it was you. Yes, this is Victor."
>>28385096Even so, we've called Felicia's house, Gwen's house, and Mary Jane's House with it.The call records on the phone would basically point to one Peter Parker.
>>28385111>Before we can react>Before spiderman can reactwhat is Agent Coulson a superhero as well?
>>28384851>[x]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOMThe motel thing gets my vote
>>28385151>>28385096speaking of we should throw it out at some point.
>>28385157Tahiti is a magical place.
>>28385096They still ought to be able to pull our location off it by triangulating the signal. Pretty sure there are more than three cell towers in NYC...And once they have our number I'm sure SHIELD could find a way of turning our phone on remotely while killing the screen to make it look powered down.
Yeah check with Felicia first
>>28384851>[ ]Check for bugs and get a payphone to call DOOM
>>28385151>>28385151We don't have to use the cell phone. Pay phones still exist. We don't have any change on us at the moment, but we can always make a collect call. The system is automated, now. Probably wouldn't go through, though. "Accept the charges? Like a peasant? DOOM will do no such thing!"
>>28385157I heard somewhere that he is kinda, pretty much was first in line for testing to remake the super soldier serum, they didn't get it perfectly, but they got lessened aging, and all round better stats on the person, just not Captain level stuff.
>>28384851>>[ ]Take Johnny and Susan Storm with you to the embassyLets just get this over with. We have other fish to fry.
>>28385182Take out the battery.Also we seriously need to do a bug sweep before we do ANYTHING else.
>>28385157No, but I've always been under the impression that he's one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s better agents. I think he's been at it for nearly as long as Fury. Then again, I can't really into /co/ so what do I know?
>>28384851>[ ]Have Johnny and Susan Storm wait somewhere while you meet with DOOM
>>28385229"YOU HAVE A COLLECT CALL FROM "ohgodi'msosorrythisisspidermanIhavesueandjh-" WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACCEPT THE CHARGES?"
>>28385181Hey, that's at least a year and a half away. Right now Coulson is just a skilled agent that's already starting to slow down from middle age. Besides, I think he's in Malibu right now. The events of the first Iron Man movie happened a few days ago, he's still dealing with how to file the after-action report for a giant robot attack.
>Counting, then writing
>>28385275Giant robots haven't happened yet. Tony's Iron Man building montages takes some time to get done, after all.
>>28385279Please at least make sure Peter is cautious regardless of the majority.
>>28385275experimental technology sabotage.
>>28385085Heh, when I finish bringing groceries in, I have something relevant to oosy
>>28385307I could have sworn one of the news clips we saw mentioned a battle between robots in Malibu. I figured that was Tony and Obadiah. Maybe I misinterpreted it and it was just people seeing the Mark 2 armor flying around during the early test flights and getting spooked, then. Well, that's probably for the best. It means we'll have even more time to build up Spider-Man's reputation before another superhero comes on stage. Because being hipster Spider-Man to Tony would be hilarious. "Oh, yeah, I was into superheroics before it was cool."
>>28385307It time for waiting.I still can't believe we just sneak past richard super security future building, escape with Sue and Johnny as well MGS'd FUCKING NICK FUCKING FURY, Black Widow and that other woman in a small ass corrider while carrying two people on the fucking ceiling.Spider got the skills to pay the bills.
>Sooo, having them invisible when you go to the embassy, having them wait while you meet DOOM, and calling DOOM are all tied.So, sudden death time, quote this post and respond with 1, 2 or 3 ONLY. Anything else and your vote is NULL AND VOID>1- have them come with you to the embassy>2- have them wait somewhere while you meet with DOOM>3- Try to call DOOM>Five minutes and I cut off votes.
>>28385400"Web slinging became too mainstream, so I dug tunnels and built trap doors across the city to get around. Trap door spider-man is all about being underground."
>>28385430If 3 wins use a fucking payphone or have Peter do some magic to make the call untraceable or something
>>28385469if we call him make sure we do not use our own phone. we could also ask some random people on street for phone?
>>28385496True, we wouldn't want SHIELD tracking down Gwen and Felicia using our call history.
>>28385512That's a good idea. and people will just give up their phone for a moment to let someone place a phone call.We're going to need to know the Latverian embassy number though...
>>28385556Make sure if we ask the Storm if she is ok with that
>>28385582>>28385599Dialing Information.It's a thing.
>>28385582>what is a smartphone browser>what is a phonebook
>>28385556Alright, Calling DOOM seems to be the plan. Roll me 1d20+4, DC16 to find a phone booth.
Rolled 2 + 4>>28385619Lovely
Rolled 5 + 4>>28385619Or ask Sue first. Or use the phone app.
Rolled 18 + 4>>28385619HAHA!Hope it's not soaked in bum uren and AIDS needles
Rolled 9 + 4>>28385619
Rolled 12 + 4>>28385619
>>28385619I swear if we fail finding a payphone I will gut myself
Rolled 5 + 4>>28385635We found the FUCK out of that phone booth.
>>28385607why are you talking about the xmen?
>>28385645no>>28385635I got this.We WILL need some more spectacular points soon I feel.Because Carnage needs solving, so does Gwens stalker, also tutoring Flash, and hanging with Harry
>>28385657Woo hoo! Only partially covered in crude graffiti and doesnt have a homeless person napping in it! It could even have an up to date phonebook!
>>28385645Public pay phones really only exist at mass transit stations in the US these days. I'm shocked the DC wasn't higher.
>>28385682Now we roll to find a couple quarters.
>>28385682Huh, you learn something that makes you feel older every day
>>28385668acually Im talking about Susan "Sue" (Invisible Woman) Storm
>Call DOOMAs you swing into an alley without being noticed, you let Johnny and Susan Storm down. Johnny’s grinning like a lunatic while Dr. Strom seems to be trying to catch her breath. After she recovers for a moment, you clear her throat.“Hey, sorry to bother you like this but do you think you’d be able to give me a number to call DOOM with?”She pauses before shaking her head. “I had a number for Victor, but it was on my phone, which had been confiscated. You’d have to try to call the embassy.”She pauses. “But Johnny and I aren’t going anywhere near any phones. I’m also sure, unless Reed put a tracker into us without leaving any marks that we aren’t’ bugged. We’ll wait here while you call.”Nodding you websling away. Looking around for a telephone booth, you manage to find one and call information for the Latverian Embassy. Memorizing the number, you call the Embassy, waiting through the options until you reach a real person. Outside, you can see a couple of people pointing at you.“Hello? This is the Latverian Embassy. What is your reason for calling?”>Your response?>Your Spider-sense is beginning to tingle
>>28385834"I have a package for Doom and need to know where to drop it off."
>>28385834The line is being tapped and we need to speak in code to seem inconspicuous but at the same time get a message to DOOM
>>28385834Tell him the MAN of SPIDERS wishes to drop off a package
>>28385834"This is Spiderman. Yes, THE Spiderman. Can you put DOOM on. I'll wait."
>>28385834Ugh. This is exactly why I didn't want to call.
>>28385834Goddamn it all. So we compromised our stealth for nothing.>"Tell DOOM to prepare for a diplomatic...kerfuffle resulting for an favor requested earlier spiraling out of control. She's fine by the way. Tell him that and to sit tight for now, he'll understand. I hope." then hang up, grab the storms and gtfo.
>>28385834>>Your Spider-sense is beginning to tingleshit goblin is on to us>Your response?"I have an official business with King(?) Doom, can you please inform him that there is a information that only he can receive."
>>28385834Think fast pete!"Hello, I'm a reporter from the Daily Bugle, calling for a statement about your sovereign leader's visit to New York and his reported meeting with a local famed vigilante? Don't mean to bother, i just wished to know if he would be willing to give us a few words about it?"
>>28385885>>28385899it's a trick.>>28385834>Outside, you can see a couple of people pointing at you.i don't think the phone line is the trap.
>>28385911No we won't. Spidey-sees is tingling, time to skedaddle.
>>28385834>[x] We have no way of positively identifying ourself or getting DOOM on the phone, just get your ass to the embassy with the Storms
>>28385834I regret not waking up earlier to that I could vote against this terrible idea.
>>28385947>This is good.
>>28385834>>28385966Probably the best idea.
>>28385834cosgrove, where is the danger coming from?My Spider sense is tingling... 1-Instinctively know when danger is nearby, though not from where.>My Spider sense is tingling... 2- Know from where a threat is occurring and minutely how dangerous it is to you.
>>28385966Changing vote to this
>>28385834Spider-Man tells DOOM: both objectives have been completed, but we removed the target from captivity and need assisstance
>>28385993>>My Spider sense is tingling... 2- Know from where a threat is occurring and minutely how dangerous it is to you.>The phone and outside, and it is beginning to grow in severity.
>>28385834"I'm calling on behalf of Hanifin Fumigation. We'd like to inform your employer that the issue the embassy was having with spiders has been dealt with. It looks like the recent storms actually did much of the work for us. Flushed them right out of the building. We'll be sending along a billing team soon. In the mean time, if you have any questions for us you can contact us at our Manhattan offices. It's right by [insert whatever place we'd like to meet up at]. Have a nice day."
>>28385834Ask if thier refrigerator is running then hang up. Spider sense means were talking to a plant.Head to dooms exactly how we did last time. Land on the roof.
>>28386051Get the hell out of dodge then. Phone is bugged.
>>28386051Fucking goddamn it all to hell
>>28386051Then we gotta get out of there. Grab the Storms, make a break for the Embassy.
>>28386051...growing? Bail. Abort. Time to act casual before springing away.
>>28386051I know this is going to look like I'm bitching because things went wrong, but why did you guys want to call in the first place?
>>28386051Then we have to leave now. Swing away to the Embassy with the Storms while Sue makes us invisible again
>>28386105Probably so we could get DOOM to us instead of us to DOOM. We predicted that something would obstruct us as usual
>>28386105I didn't vote for it, but I'd imagine it's because bringing the Storms straight to the embassy might cause an international incident and it'd be rude to do that without asking if it's okay.
>>28386139>>28386145But what were you even going to say?
>>28386105I thought we would get a choice of borrowing somebody else cell phone
So, we knew that the jig would probably be up on the Storms in short order when we left the Baxter Building. So, instead of getting them to the Embassy as refugees, we decide to call it and tip off SHIELD by calling the place they'd expect the Storms to go.Great job, everyone.
>>28386207>abloo bloo bloo>>28386145This pretty much
>>28386051NICK FURY FOUND OUT THE STORMS ESCAPEBAIL NOW
>>28386190To DOOM or to the person to get DOOM on the phone? We'd tell the person to tell DOOM we need him to exfiltrate Spider-Man because he brought the target outOr something like that
>>28386253Why in the ninth level of hell would DOOM pick up the phone personally?
>>28386207Cry more faggot.
>>28386280Good to know who's running this show.
>>28386273Didn't imply that he would ever answer the phone himself
>>28386303So the plan is to let ourself get taken by shield while Sue and Johnny try to invisible themselves over to the embassy, right?
>>28386303I still think that's fucking retarded, but it's really my fault for sleeping through the first part of the thread.
>>28386051Phone is being traced. All high priority calls in the state are probably being traced....Dooms is probably not an option right now. Unless someone has a clever spy idea.
Honestly this plan fell apart when Sue said she didn't have Victor's personal number. Why the hell did we follow through on it anyway?

wrote this up after our mass speculation last thread.>(1/2)Peter Parker trudged through the yard after what was arguably the longest day of his life. Luckily it was over and it was time for Thanksgiving break. A beautiful four day weekend loomed ahead; he and Felicia planned on watching the parade from a lovely swing seat he'd suspend above 34th street. As the buzzing of Mary Jane on the periphery of his Spider Sense faded, he let slip a small sigh of relief until an unfamiliar source gave him a dull but distant buzz. It was not unlike the sensation he had approaching the Stacey house while it was under surveillance.With renewed vigor, he kicked up toward the door."Aunt May! Uncle Ben! I'm home," he was cautious, he couldn't let slip that something was wrong."Peter, could you please see us in the kitchen?" his Aunt card from the kitchen with some Agency and distress.Dropping his bag and sliding a pepper cartridge into the emergency web slinger he had built into his custom watch, Peter calmed himself and walked from the foyer toward the call. When he saw, his stomach dropped.There, sitting at his kitchen table, was the man with the scars and the eyepatch he had snuck past during his flight from the Baxter Building, he was drinking tea. By the door were two men, one in a sharp black suit, the other in a black and purple tactical outfit with a bow strapped across his back.May Parker regarded Peter with a pleading air of worry, Ben had his eyes set firmly with cold disapproval on the man casually sipping tea across from him.The yellow insulated Spider Suit, the mark 1 web shooters, and his discarded prototype for an Arc Reactor powered spot light utility belt sat between them on the table.

>>28386404Nicely done Anon!
>>28386416>(2/2)"Mr. Parker. Welcome home. I'm sure you're wondering what's going on.""Son, this is Nick Fury. He says he's the Director of Shield. Whatever all this is, Peter, I want you to know we are proud of you,""That is a very good question, Peter Parker, just what IS going on here?" The bald man quirked the brow of his good eye toward the youth."H-how!""The minute you saved the Director's emergency line to your burner phone, we've been tracking you and monitoring your calls," explained the suited man with short cropped hair.Peter froze. Great, just great. This day couldn't get any worse.In the background, the doorbell sounded.A tense moment passed between the six in the kitchen. The man in the suit pressed into his earbud, listening intently to something or other."Talk to me, Coulson,""Kid should go get the door, I think he'll appreciate it,"Director Fury relaxed his posture and shoot an expectant glance back to Peter.Slowly, the buzz of his spider sense leveling out to a low ache, Peter went back to the front door and looked through the peep hole. The knocking returned with a particular force."No way,""MAN OF SPIDERS! The very fate of the city rests upon us foiling the machinations of renegade Free Masons trying to pervert the leylines channeled by their ancestors architecture. Come, to this urgent call of DOOM!"Yeah, tomorrow's date with Felicia was totally not happening.
>>28386403>>28386404>>28386405I think we nailed it.
>>28386353stop flinging shit shitposter.
>>28386404So glad our stealth is still as amazing as the last several times
>>28386464No, it was a terrible idea, and calling names isn't going to make you less retarded.
>>28386416>>28386443I enjoyed that.
Back from work. Hurrah for PPQ!Also, Commuter, my library had the FF Civial War tpb with the exact story-line you were telling me about a few weeks ago.
>>28386492and causing an international incident, while pissing off SHIELD is better?
>>28386416>>28386443Nice. I hope for the sequel. Spiderman and Doom shenanigans
>>28386563How about you guys stop shit flinging
>>28386571They're fun together.
>>28386563But we dont know that.All we know if Susan talked about getting Dissected like a lab rat so that the government could steal her ability to turn completely invisible. And that she seemed to Trust DOOM.
>>28386563Yeah, it is better than pointing them straight to us and throwing out and the sneaking we did last thread. They're already going to be mad at us.>>28386590Who the hell is shitflinging, faggot?
>>28386559>Reed telling the story to baby Valeria?
>>28386563Why would it cause an international incident unless someone saw Sue and Johnny enter the embassy?We could just have them go invisible a block away and then walk over on in with us.
>>28386663The Heroes of Paris.
>>28386643except currently everything we have done is easily reversible.
>>28386643This is bait greeneggs. Do not respond. Don't except me to respond to you shitflinger.
fuck me, I forgot my usual pronouncement of SPECTACULAR SPECTACULAR SPIDER THREAD!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJ-oawfyvn4
>>28386676You are underestimating Cosgrove's SHIELD.I think.
>>28386698>>28386663>>28386559dose anybody have the pic?
>>28386727Bullshit. Sue's invisibility can trick even electronic detection. The Fantastic Four only got their powers a few weeks ago. SHIELD can't possibly have the technology to beat her powers yet, the very idea is ridiculous.Fury isn't an idiot, sure, but he's no Reed Richards. And we just got out of a building HE built and handled the security for.
>>28386824I think he's referring to their mundane tracking and intelligence gathering skills, not about noticing the invisible Sue.
>>28386824Via the ELEVATOR.
>>28386824Well, keep in mind that Doom conformed that government knows about people wit powers, so there is a small chance that they may have a prototypes or something for that.
I'm not sure why we couldn't find a safehouse, get Johnny and Sue some disguises, and then have them go to the embassy.Are people against relying on our girlfriend?
>>28386742If you google "heroes of paris" and "marvel" you should be able to find out where each are described.
Hanging up the phone, you quickly leave the booth and websling away. Pictures being taken of you by Pedestrians as you go. Several people are on the phone, looking around for a street sign or other form of road identification, which ping your Spider-sense. Taking some evasive actions while traveling by web, you notice a few police and other cars heading towards where you were, but you manage to keep out of sight and get to the alley you left the Storms. Looking around, you don’t see anything until you lower yourself down as which point, the two reveal themselves.“Look, Couldn’t reach doom, but I’ve got to get you two to the Latverian Embassy. It’s the only safe place for now.”Susan nods as you adhere to the two as the grab a hold of you as you head toward the embassy. When you’re nearly there, you see yourself turn invisible. Looking in the distacne, you see why. There’s several vehicles in front of the Embassy, with a man in a black suit talking with the Gate’s Guard.Webslinging past them all, you land on the balcony where you entered last time and knock several times. After a few moments, an aide approaches the door and opens it and looks outside. Keeping your voice low, you talk to the Aide.“Hey, this is Spider-man. Could you tell DOOM that Spider-man is here and that the situation is rather pressing?”The Aide looks in the direction of your voice before closing the door. A few moments later, DOOM walks outside, leaving the door open behind him. He doesn’t say anything as he surveys the scene in front of his Embassy. He taps the railing in front of him as you quickly make out Morse code, telling you to head inside. Doing so, you wait a few moments before he heads back inside, closing the door and shuttering it. Waving the Aides outside, DOOM clears his throat as Susan drops the invisibility, wheezing as she tries to catch her breath. Behind his mask, DOOM’s eyes widen, his voice cold.
>>28386824How would he possibly know that Sue might visit the embassy of her old friend who is able to provide her political asylum when she's running from the government, obviously he can't because she can go invisible.
>>28386882Then Sue gets to Felicia which with her biology experience want to see how and what change in Felicia. and finds out our secret identity. Also Johnny will freak out we got a bit tat cat girl girlfriend who is a thief.Let just send to DOOM. He better equip and more experience on this.
>>28386904>Behind his mask, DOOM’s eyes widen, his voice cold.We should have let him know in person before hand.

>>28386986...This is worth saying.
>>28387007Better than showing up unannounced. Though our spider sense told us to fuck off from the phone, so we did.
>>28387007because of exactly this.>>28386904>Waving the Aides outside, DOOM clears his throat as Susan drops the invisibility, wheezing as she tries to catch her breath. Behind his mask, DOOM’s eyes widen, his voice cold.>>28386940>“Man of Spiders, why are there Federal agents outside my Embassy? Why are Jonathan and Susan here? Why were you three invisible?
>>28387007So Doom/his henchman could take her else where than Latverian ambasady?
>>28387007Not to drop off sue to doom like nothing. But then SHIELD and the feds made us force our hand.
>>28386940> Explain quickly while Sue catches her breath"Ms. Storm requested I extract her and her brother under fear that they might be disappeared. According to her the entire team's been cleared to leave the quarantine, but Richards has been holding them in the Baxter Building while trying to find a way to reverse some side effects of their trip. Susan being able to create invisibility fields is one of those side effects. Given the conversation we had earlier I felt it prudent to honor her request." Then detail the arrival of the three clandestine looking people as we made our exit.
>>28387007Why are you asking the same question twice?Because we couldn't predict that DOOM wouldn't react similar to the way he currently is right now anyway
>>28386940"In order: they might or might not have tracked me or already suspected your involvement in the rest of this mess, Susan can explain, Susan can explain, and Susan can explain... probably. If she's up to it that is."Really, it's mostly Susan's show here.
>>28386940> explain quicklyThe storms wanted to leave thier unnecessary quarantine and resume thier normal lives. I agreed to help. Had to avoid government types on the way out. Sue is probably stressed from using her invisibility powers. Tried to call you but the line was being traced i think. Figured they would be safe here while we sort things out.
>>28386940>Stop Johnny from Explaining because you know he's going to start.>Let Susan Storm explain.>if he still wants further explanation from us. "I'll be honest, I may have panicked a little
>>28386940>whatever we do, also give him that letter we got Sue to write him!
>>28386940[ ] Let Susan Storm explain while speaking up whenever necessary
>>28387090Gotta be sure to tick it off on our fingers for emphasis though.
>>28386904>>28386940>[ ] Let Susan Storm explain while speaking up whenever necessaryI can agree with this course of action
>>28386986I like this one. We were perfectly happy with the delivery and the picture, Sue wanted to get out of the building she can convey that much better than we could.
>>28387111Point. Emphasize that we had actually accomplished what he'd asked, there were just some complications.
>>28386940Also we should talk about how the feds busted in just as were were deciding to get them out so it kind of forced our hand
>>28387111I forgot about that
>>28386940>[ ] Let Susan Storm explain while speaking up whenever necessary
>>28386889>>28386742The pic got swapped. Let's try this.
>>28387258Good ole Doctor Q
>>28387379I like Detective Fantôme myself. He's pretty much the Question and his character design is awesome.
You glance over at Susan Storm, who seems to be doing a bit better. DOOM carefully helps her over to a chair before she starts explaining all that happened. She stops to make sure Johnny doesn’t butt into the story several times, but eventually she finishes.DOOM stands there for several minutes before turning to you.“While DOOM understands the situation, do realize that your accidental alert of the Federal Government to where the Storm family might be has complicated things for DOOM. DOOM is honor bound to assist you for completing DOOM’s task.”He turns around and lets out a contemplative, thoughtful noise.“DOOM would need to examine the curse directly. However, there is no way for you to enter and exit DOOM’s Embassy without being seen.”>[ ] Ask if he sure there’s not anything he can do>[ ] Screw it, get Felicia and try to sneak her into the Embassy>[ ] Ask for Dr. Storm’s assistance to get Felicia here>[ ]Write in
>>28387496Call Felicia, have her come down to the embassy herself. She's just a regular citizen and can come and go as she pleases, we don't have to escort her.
>>28387496>>[ ] Screw it, get Felicia and try to sneak her into the EmbassyMight be pushing our luck, but I don't think we want to use Susan to do this.
>>28387525How is she going to get in when there's a SHIELD investigation going on?
>>28387496>[X] Ask if he sure there’s not anything he can do>[X] Ask for Dr. Storm’s assistance to get Felicia herePretty sure no one saw us enter the building as we were INVISIBLE. They have no proof the Storms are here. DOOM ought to be able to resolve this dispute with tact and delicacy.
>>28387496Felicia can sneak in herself, just give her a few hours.
>>28387496The curse isn't THAT big a deal, let's come back tomorrow after this has died down some.
>>28387496Hmm[ ] Ask for Dr. Storm's assistance to get Felicia here.Let's explain what's going on and why we need Doom's, and now her, help, but don't try to guilt her into doing it.
>>28387496>[ ]Write in"I apologize, Dr. Doom, sir, for bringing this shitstorm down upon you. It was an accident. I fucked up. My bad."

>>28387496>>[ ]Write in>Regardless of what other options are chosen i think we should apologize to Doom for bringing him this trouble and just say that we felt we wouldn't be meeting our end of the deal if we left her after asking for our help.
>>28387547First, she's a master at B&E. Secondly, SHIELD has no reason to suspect her of anything and while they think Doom is involved, there's no evidence so they can't just keep everybody from entering the embassy.
>>28387496>[ ]Write inTake a picture of one of Doom's aides.Send pic to Felicia to use it as disguise, if she can manage it.Have her come into the embassy with said disguise.Escort from Doom's minions entirely optional.Got no better ideas here.
>>28387496>hang head, "Sigh, this whole weekend has just continued to snowball out of control. Is this Embassy old enough to have underground access tunnels or a connection into the sewer?"
>>28387496>ask him whether this brightened scrutiny will end any time soon.
>>28387577*After she asked for our help>>28387570Something like this too.
>>28387572End of Arc Bonuses require downtime to be bought.
>>28387496>>[ ] Ask if he sure there’s not anything he can doCan he send a official latverian car (shield can't stop an political car, can they?) or something to pick her up some where around felicia's place?
>>28387496Get Felicia to sneak in herself
>>28387496Call Felicia, ask if she's up to breaking into the Latverian embassy?
Actually, when it comes to Felicia we should bring her there tomorrow. As long as there is nothing SHIELD can do they will probably leave some observers but leave the embassy unimpeded. We may need to go as Peter, but it should be easier than pushing our luck further.
>>28387599That'd definitely make things easier.
>>28387570Clean up the language, but yeah we should say something to that effect.
>>28387599It's going to be much harder to disguise herself with her new ears, tail, and BIG FAT CAT TATS.
>>28387662This, wait til tomorrow also because I don't want to risk using any phone
>>28387496"If you're like magic, cant you like, make a portal they could walk through and be here?"
>>28387722This is dumb, don't ask this.
>>28387722We really should get a "DOOM's Guide to Magic" while we're here.
>>28387599Good plan. Make sure it's a female aide, at least. You know, since she kinda grew up all of a sudden at all.
>>28387722That is dumb and insulting and Doom is already displeased with us. We do not need to outright antagonize him.
>>28387722Let's not presume too much lest we look even more like an idiot than we already do and make DOOM respect us less.
>>28387496>[ ] Ask for Dr. Storm’s assistance to get Felicia hereI want to veto this as hard as possible. She's wiped out from the first trip and there's NO WAY that DOOM would allow it.>Write-InUse a secure line to contact Felicia and fill her in. Perhaps waiting a day is a better plan, we should consult her professional opinion as to what style sneaking plan is best..
When if we get Sue to invisible us and Johnny out of here and somewhere else then let them come in and do a sweep to prove he's not implicated?Or would they be able to detect cosmic radiation?This is a shitty situation. Damn you Sue.
>>28387786>letting SHIELD plant bugs in DOOM's embassyFuck you
>>28387786It's not on Sue.It's on you idiots calling the Latverian Embassy in public while dressed as Spider-Man.The fuck did you think would happen?
>>28387786An embassy wouldn't let the feds in on general principles.
>>28387826unless someone had their dick in us while we where dialing, Spider-Man using a phone booth has nothing to do with anything.
>>28387743Pretty much. Just the basic. Safe basics. No more, no less.Also, apologize. We bought this shit storm to DOOM.
>>28387826Then say that beforehandPeople get an idea they'll Shout out about it and garner quick support. You need people to act Fast to poke holes in it and fight the idea to turn support away from it.
>>28387852Unless the Baxter building has security cameras.
>>28387826Should have mentioned before that Spider-Man fucking phoning the Embassy will result in Shield freaking out for whatever reason. Phoning wouldn't let them know that we took the Storms.
>>28387865People did say something.They said work with Felicia and find a safe house.And then contact Doom ourselves.
>>28387871we aced out stealth rolls on that. stop saying it.This is a terrible and tense situation. I want to say I told you all so (about bringing them to the embassy) but it doesn't change anything. Might as well start thinking forward.DOOM has got to have some solution, he's a diplomat after all.
>Sooo....Apparently the two highest are>[X] Apologizeand>Get Felicia to sneak herself in.>So...>I'm going to need you to roll me a fellowship check. 1d20+2, DC30.
Rolled 8 + 2>>28387933dc30? Damn.
>>28387496Apologize and call Felicia. She's a master of disguise and a cat burgler, how hard could it really be for her to sneak into the embassy?
>>28387933No. Fucking hell. Felicia is part cat right now, she can't come.

>>28388037No deal, amigo.>Writing
>>28387971>>28387957>>28387987No, no we can't pull this off. Because you're trying to apologize to DOOM for potentially causing an international incident, and trying to have Felicia, who is having the mother of all bad weeks, try to sneak in to an embassy surrounded by federal agents. Oh, and try to sneak in after she's undergone major physical changes that will no doubt have an effect on her stealth and acrobatic abilities.And you're surprised that we're looking at a DC 30 check.Idiots.
You know what, I'm getting way too worked up this thread. Take it easy Cos, see ya later Anons.
>>28388037fuck that was a fellowship for DOOM not FeliciaFuckFUCKI told you guys to ditch sue and go chat with Vic about it. Oh well, no use bitching about it now. We all collectively made this bed.
>>28388059This, except more people should have mentioned it. Jesus Christ, I didn't think I could feel this shit
>>28388056OH GOD NO.WE DEAD MEN. WE DEAD.SHIELD HATES US, DOOM HATES US AND WILL DO SOMETHING TO FUCK US UP WHILE KEEPING HIS PROMISE AND REEDS HATES US SOON.FELICIA WILL BE ALSO BE FUCKED.WE FAIL. THE MOST IMPORTANT CHOICE AND WE FUCK UP.
God damn it guys why did we have to be nice and save Sue and Johnny when we could have just gotten away scot free
Everyone stay calm.This is what it means to be Parker.Let us not loose our heads.
>>28388134A damsel in distress wanted us to rescue her and while we're not a hero, we're still good guys.

>>28388233I think the problem is that we apologized.
>>28388233We doomed ourselves.

>>28388252Pretty much. Victor's never liked groveling.
>>28387933I guess you could say we're DOOMED.
>>28388286In regard to everything we've done since leaving the Baxter, hindsight is 20/20
>>28388293God damn it Carlos
>>28388274And why would he, if you dumbasses thought the phone would be a good idea.We formed a perfectly good idea in the last thread, and in the qtg even, only everyone jumped on the idiot wagon.
You turn to DOOM and let out a sigh. “I’m sorry, Dr. DOOM, Johnny, Dr. Storm. I really messed up and I’ve screwed things up for you, all of you.”DOOM pauses and nods his head, tipping his hat. “Apology accepted. DOOM acknowledges and respects the fact that you, Man of Spiders, are aware of the error you have made and are admitting it.”You pull out your phone. “I’ve got to call the person who’s cursed, see if they might have some sort of way.”DOOM nods as you dial Felicia’s number. After a few moments, she picks up, her voice cautious. “Peter? What’s going on?”Clearing your throat, you answer. “Well, I helped out someone who can break your curse, but we’re rather in a tight situation. Think you could disguise yourself and get into the Atverian-lay Bassy-emay?”He pauses for a few moments before responding, a hiss evident in her voice.. “JESUS, PETER! WHAT THE FUCK?! NO. FUCK. I have to get out of here now, Thanks a fucking lot! I DID NOT NEED THIS ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE,PETER!”She hangs up on you. Trying to call her back, you get a disconnected notice.Oh, fuck.>[ ] Hurry to Felicia’s, now!>[ ] Dr. Storm, I really need your help. Like now.>[ ] BSoD>[ ] Write in

>>28388352Well, at least Doom might not hate us.
>>28388395>>28388428Just kind of casually do this, and then ask Dr. Storm if she could help us out.

>>28388459Better safe than even sorrier.
Uh, guys? We REALLY haven't been such a good bf to Felicia lately.We fucked up royally with the cat statue. We made light of it by petting her tail. We made her worried sick with us sneaking into the Baxter building, and now we're asking her to sneak into the Latverian Embassy.No shit she's pissed.How do we fix this?
>>28388352Alright. So we cannot make ANY good decisions. Cosgrove, what would YOU do?
>>28388352>Write inBsod. Followed by realizing that getting our girlfriend picked up by shield is horrifyingly stupid. Give her time to relocate and contact us. This is a fairly emotional tine for her and she doesnt need the black widow hauling her in as a suspected terrorist or what have you.
>>28388497Kidnap her and sneak her into the embassy?
>>28388352>>[ ] Hurry to Felicia’s, now!"Sorry guys, but I REALLY need to help someone. Uhhh. Here's my number. I'll be back as soon as I can sorry!"
>>28388459You did something stupid. Stupid does not equal dangerous all the time. The Spider-sense is not something that will protect Peter from anything other than danger to himself.
>>28388428This>>28388352I have no idea what bsod isBut we don't want to make things worse. If we burst out she's fucked and so are we.If Sue helps her, then they could both get caught.We're making everything terrible.... WE SPIDER-MAN OFFICIALLY NOW!>>28388497time and space
>>28388352[X]...My friend is in deep trouble. I need to go help her.Something happen. Felicia is leaving NYC because of that.
>>28388498We can't ask that unless we burn a spectacular point. Them's the rules.
>>28388497She's pissed because we called her when our phone is now clearly tapped.If worst comes to worst we may need to use our phone call to Fury.
>>28388497All the bad BF stuff in less than 24 hours.We are having a terrible day, she's having a worse one.
>>28388526Sue DOES owe us a favor for breaking her out.It shouldn't be hard to convince her to get Felicia in here. OR, get DOOM over to Felicia's.
>>28388526In this context, it refers to being so devastated by your own failures and monumental stupidity that you just stop doing anything.
>>28388548>we may need to use our phone call to Fury.All things considered, this is probably the best idea if we want to get the pressure off of Doom and Felicia. It's not good for us, I'm not saying we should necessarially do it, but if they get the person responsible, they'll stop making other peoples lives miserable over it.
>>28388497The first one was an accident that could not be foreseen.Second one was our fault. We just didn't expect the reaction IC wise. Felicia would have done the same thing,Third one and fourth one was to help her on the first one.We fucked up but we fixing it.
>>28388551We have a lot of groveling ahead of us. Being able to get rid of the curse will help, but still she is really upset and may need her space. I think we should just get out of the embassy. Tell Doom we'll be back once we can get in touch with the gf. Let Felicia contact us once she gets to a safe house and calms down.
>>28388352[ ] Write inLet's just..not do anything. We can't really help Felicia by going there ourselves, so let's ask Doom for a discrete way to contact him, which we can use once Felicia's relocated and contacted us. Once that's done, let's just head home and maybe do some science.
>>28388591Knowing SHIELD they'll scope out everyone involved with us. They aren't going to tunnel vision on the Spider.
Plan.Step 1: We need to get out of the Embassy without being seen.Step 2: I got nothing...nothing short of a monolougeing supervillain attack right now that can grant any sort of breathing room.
>>28388459Because she doesn't mean us harm, she's just really angry at us.
>>28388591"Who the FUCK is this? I'm busy right now.""It uh... it... it's Spider-Man?""Oh REALLY? Well let me tell you this smart ass if- ... ... ... Oh I see. Let me tell you something. You REALLY fucked up here; so why don't you and your pals step outside and surrender before you start a GODAMN WAR?!"
>>28388591Fury: "Why'd you do it."Peter: "I'm a good guy and she had good reasoning. Besides even though I...maybe at this point had a girlfriend she was a hot 25 year old in a bathrobe asking for my help. What straight 17 year old boy wouldn't have?"
>>28388591>before calling and getting picked up by shield...we might want to come clean to Aunt May and Uncle Ben.
>>28388661"Why'd you do it?""I think we can all agree I make poor decisions."
>>28388661Alright, I'm dropping this quest.
>>28388352since we can't ask DOOM what to do even though this is his bag... I suggest... we call Fury.
>>28388669Not necessarily. Fury would be understanding of keeping identities secret. Hell, he'd appreciate our discretion after dealing with Stark.
We should never have broke out the Storms...In any case, crush our cellphone. If it wasn't tapped before, it is now.
>>28388680I was kidding around. Sorry if that makes you srop this.
>>28388661To help my girlfriend.Who now my ex the moment i contacted her about I found someone to cure her of something I cause incidentally.Fury:...that some shitty luck.
>>28388688>However we shouldn't do it here. Dear god we shouldn't do it while inside the Latverian Embassy. Calling from within the embassy is the worst thing we can do.'I need to figure out a sneaky way out of here, then I'm turning myself in to try and take the heat off of here...this has been 24 hours of poor decision making, and I gotta take responsibility for it,"ask about basement/sewer/steamtunnel/colonial era tunnels. Doom seems big on secret passages. We totally consent to being blindfolded to maintain the secret.
>>28388696Stark hasn't done his robot suit thing yet.I can't help but feel that Cosgrove is at his desk laughing like a madman as we dig ourselves deeper and deeper into this pit.We just wanted to talk to a TV host and we ended up causing an international incident.Just like the Increasingly Poor Decisions od Todd Margrett or whatever that show was called.
>>28388730"I have no idea what you're talking about; everything's coming up Spider."
>>28388758Oh shit, I just realized we left our spare equipment and blood samples and everything at Felicia's house... If that's being raided by SHIELD...
>>28388792... ... ...
You guys are really over-reacting to this. Take 60 seconds and a few deep breaths and calm down. Felicia isn't going to break up with us because we made a mistake.She will be angry, but we aren't spies or a thief. We made a mistake.

>>28388837Ah yes, the "Join SHIELD", "Chill with the FF", and "Date with Felicia" arcs.Hey at least we unlocked the "Run Away to Latveria" one!
>>28388837>>28388879Either way, we have to ditch it. No 2 ways about it.

>>28388942Nope, blood samples are still at the Parker Residence. That is why we still had to give them to Gwen later this weekend.
>>28388837Also, I'm sorry for all your planning Cos. Hopefully it can be salvaged.
>>28388954No, but this quest will have a very different direction than it did before. I know Marvel, I CAN work with this.

>>28389098Except for that fellowship roll with Felicia... That's... That's not good.
>>28389118Monitoring of any calls in and out of the embassy
>>28389045It won't help, because stupid people are gonna stupid.Really wish we could retcon this thread out of existence, because I think people legitimately ruined everything.Now how the fuck are we going to get anything done with stopping Carnage?
>>28389118Because our Cell Phone magically got traced. Somehow.When its been on us the whole time.
"I'm just... I'm gunna take a seat right over here. Yes I know it is a ball. This is my thinking pose. If you hear any screaming those are just brainstorms and not the onset of madness. No sir-ree."
>>28389137We start by not overreacting to shit.
>>28389145Because SHIELD?And they knew to suspect us because Spider-Man called the Latverian Embassy like a moron.
>>28389137I actually agree with you. If we could vote to just drop everything that happened once this thread started and go in a different direction I would. But, barring Cos agreeing, we made our bed and have to now sleep in it.
>>28389118>>28389136>DOOM begins tapping his fingers>"DOOM suspected American electricians do not wear suits..."
>>28389145More along the lines that with the patriot act, monitoring of cellphone data for key words, and in relation to what cell towers the call pings can be used for intelligence purposes.The processing is not immediate. Felicia has time to get out of the house before...We as a hive mind seem to edge in the past two days of quests in general toward some poor decisions.
>>28389161What's not to overreact to?Felicia is going to lose her house, might need a new identity even, and she has to deal with that while still cursed.She might have to leave the country.
>>28389164>use pay phone>our cell phone gets tracedwat
>>28389164We called it from a fucking payphone.Cell Towers in New Fucking York are not so easy to trace just by sheer volume of calls.
>>28389145Shield most likely was monitoring all calls in and out of the Latverian embassy. We called Felicia, so there you go.Let's just take this as a valuable lesson and do what we can to minimize further damage.
>>28389191Also she'll need a new identity.Because of her bedroom full of stollen loot.So if she escapes she'll be flat ass broke too.
>>28389166I said we should get in touch with Felicia first, I don't know why the fuck everyone had a problem with that.That was the obvious solution to me.
>>28389200We called from our cell phone. It will take a decent amount of time before that gets found out if at all.The payphone bit was stupid, especially with the social media data mining that can help them prove spider-man called the Latverian Embassy at that time.
>>28389191How about 'It's Marvel and we're Spider-Man, even if we're on the outs with SHIELD they're not gonna force her out of the country'
One thing left to do.
>>28389194>>28389195They're obviously able to detect every ongoing call from the Latverian Embassy.Because we couldn't step outside.
>>28389262Then why didn't DOOM stop us from calling if they can already do that?
>>28389262Cell towers do not work that way.
>>28389243She's kind of a criminal who's stolen a lot of shit.
>>28389287We just brought a war to his front door.
>>28389297Yes, because stealing shit means you get a ticket out of the country.Again, it's Marvel. People've done worse without having to leave the country.
>>28389296>>28389287Well unless Felicia overreacted due to cat powers, then evidently Doom dropped the ball/SHIELD has greater technology than he anticipated.At least judging by how Cosgrove is saying we ruined everything.
>Let me clarify something, because there seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding.Felicia's flipping the fuck out because firstly, the Feds are involved, as is international problems. Even if she wouldn't suspect the phones being tapped, she's a big wanted criminal and skipping town is her first reaction.It is doubly so because she's got cat ears and a tail and doesn't want to be locked up as somebody's science experiment.
>>28389317I'm saying she's going to flee the country to avoid going to prison, because if SHIELD knows where she lives, they can know she's the Black Cat, and arrest her for being the Black Cat.
>>28389347....Okay yeah get your ass to Felicia.
>>28389347Alright, we need to get to her and calm her down again.
>>28389347Oh well then we get Susan to sneak us out of the embassy, and then we leave now.
>>28389347Well lets hope we get to her in time and roll a lot of 20's
>>28389347we need a way out to not be noticed and then we must get immediately to felicia and calm her ass down.
>>28389401Agreed. Hopefully we can salvage this, the relationship for Peter and Cos' arc plans!
You stare at your phone blankly. “…I should just stop using phones...probably forever." Before clenching your hand. The plastics and electronics crumble as you crush it with one hand as Johnny whistles, before being cut off by a smacking sound.You stare at the remains of what used to be a phone, your constantly thinking mind having reached its blue screen of death. Just for a long moment.And then it reboots. Your head shoots up at the window. Knowing Felicia, she’s probably going to try and skip town. She’s the Black cat, no doubt she’s got some contingencies. You have to get to her before she can vanish.Your mind calculates an efficient scheme. “Dr. Storm, I really need your help right now. My cursed friend is about to skip town. I need to get there without causing any more trouble.”DOOM looks like he’s about to say something but pauses, seemingly recognizing something in your tone. Susan Storm looks at you before nodding. DOOM grudgingly heads towards the balcony’s door as you feel Dr. Storm grab on as you adhere her to you and head out as a fast pace, not using any webs to get past the Police and Feds perimeter.>Stealth bonus- Invisibility(+10, plus natural bonuses +8)- Bonus above 18- no current roll needed>Roll me an agility (1d20+6) DC-18.
>>28389401>Get Susan to sneak us out of the embassy.>Ask her to do something that will leave her high and dry outside what is potentially her only current safe haven to help us fix a problem we caused.Yup, best of luck with that, Anon. I'm sure that'll go over real well with Sue and DOOM.

Rolled 17 + 6>>28389439fingers crossed
>>28389439Sorry Vicky; we got a cat to catch.>scared
>>28389495Oh thank Stan
Rolled 4 + 6Dice please
Rolled 4 + 6Man, I left for like half an hour and you guys just escalated everything. Well, let's try and salvage this.
Sue is going to overexert herself and get hurt... isn't she?>We left Johnny with DOOMWell at least I'll get a little amusement thinking about that.
>>28389612I would assume so.
I think if we want to stop Felicia from freaking out, we need to tell her that our parents worked for SHIELD, we have Nick Fury's number and if we have to, we'll put it all on the line to help her.
>>28389641Best option we have.
Should have kept the phone; swung away, called a random number while in route THEN crushed it.
>>28389612At the very least we're going to be far too distracted (as are the cops) to save a little 12 year old girl that was so happy to spot spiderman earlier today.
>>28389547It's /tg/. What do you expect? /tg/ sucks at Shadowrun and /tg/ sucks at common sense. Jesus fucking christ.To be fair, though, this was handled about as hamfistedly as possible on all ends-- Cosgrove's included.
>>28389641I can only see this making things worse, so of course we're going to end up doing it...
>>28389681I think Carnage might be distracted wondering what the fuck Spider-Man is doing calling the Latverian Embassy.>YFW Carnage decides to stage the next slaughter there
Rolled 15 + 6>>28389716Everything turns out better than expected.
Rolled 6 + 6>>28389684Yeah, if I was here last thread I would have tried and gone for the "get the idea of being super heroes into Reed's head" plan, then left. Instead... Yeah.
>>28389665>>28389665Or at least tell her about how we're pretty sure Osborn killed them; and that we found out they used to be shield agents.>>28389684I keep trying to make calm decisions and many people post the most panicy route. Tonight we are Peter Pasta.
>>28389716>implying Carnage wouldn't be DOOMed if they tried anything
>>28389706Explain how it could make things worse before we do it.>>28389684While calling from a public phone on our part was stupid, our call to Felicia was in all likelihood not traced, DOOM wouldn't allow it.That's more just insensitive towards Felicia being a criminal and high-strung at the moment.
So for archiving I'm thinking the description should be "Spider-Man Trapped in His Own Web." Sadly fits.
>>28389740That was perfectly reasonable.We talked to Susan Storm and she seemed very firm that talking to Reed was a waste of time.Plus if we stuck around any longer, Nick Fury would have been in the building.
Rolled 18 + 6>>28389759>our call to Felicia was in all likelihood not tracedI choose to believe this. We have enough going on as it is without having to deal with Felicia having to run.
>>28389741Yeah, I was looking forward to tonight because DOOM is cool. Instead, I get to sit around and vote for boring, safe cleanup actions because I'd rather this quest not get any more fucking derp.
>>28389772Well, on the other hand, we have all the time we need to explore our mystic powers. I mean, we're not going to have to room to do superhero things after this.
>>28389745"DOOM ACCEPTS YOUR CHALLENGE RED ASSASSIN."
>>28389759Do you really think Felicia is going to trust us if we give her the kind of information that suggests we would be likely to freelance for SHIELD? With her current level of situationally induced stress I'm surprised she hasn't been more paranoid/reactive. You don't just get the personal number of the director of the world's premier espionage agency. We did, but no me in their right mind would believe that.Plus Fury owes us an extraction, that kind of favor pales before the clusterfuck we just kicked up.
>>28389796What no, she's definitely going to try running.It's just that she doesn't HAVE to run, because I choose to believe that Doom is a good enough guy that he'd have told us if the call could be traced.
>>28389641>Don't worry Felicia, I have the personal phone number for the director of a government agency: a man who may or may not still be alive over a decade after my parents died, who may or may not still have the same number, and who may or may not help me out out of loyalty to said parents who, again, died over a decade ago. Oh, and he's the director of an agency you've probably never heard of. I'm totally not making any of this up.
>>28389848Technically all they know is that Spider-Man called the Latverian Embassy, shortly after the Storm siblings were found missing.
>>28389892That's all we know they know.
>>28389875Alright fine, it's not much of a comfort.
>>28389892ThisI dont know why this means Felecia has to pack up and leave
>>28389892And that Spiderman was seen entering Doom's office/residence at the Latverian Embassy earlier in the day.
Rolled 16 + 6>>28389869HAVING to run. At the moment, she most likely hasn't actually been compromised, she just thinks she has. If she actually had, that would open another can of worms, and we have like 4 containers of wriggling invertebrates to deal with as it is.
>>28389908We know that they probably didn't detect our infiltration and exit, due to no spider-sense tingling.
>>28389892This. Connecting all of this to us is rather ridiculous when you consider that they still have zero evidence of what we're so paranoid about.Besides, DOOM would never allow people to trace calls from his Embassy. The last thing he would want is the US meddling in his affairs, and if this weren't the case, he would have stopped us from calling Felicia.We're okay, guys. Kind of.
>>28389915We said Latverian Embassy on the phone and she's (rightly) paranoid. We also called her on the same phone earlier asking her how to break into the Baxter building, and by now that call's been retrieved by SHIELD.
Rolled 7 + 6>>28389942THis is probably why he's being understanding about us rushing off, too: He realized that she thought the cal lwas traced.
>>28389919No he wasn't. How would they keep an eye on us 24/7?
>>28389915Felicia probably doesn't HAVE to leave, but she definitely THINKS she has to leave. She's a criminal, she's naturally flighty, she's mutated and her boyfriend has gotten the feds involved in some thing and wants her to come to ground zero. She's panicking.
>>28389942Unless Cosgrove wants to be a dick
>>28389961I don't think they're THAT good.
>>28389942A) It's SHIELD, and Cosgrove is running the quest. Implausible "fuck-you" situations? Count on 'em.B) Felicia won't give a shit, because HELLO, RANDOM DC30 FELLOWSHIP CHECK. Maybe lop 5 points off because we'd be face to face. *shrugs*
>>28389942SHIELD is not under US jurisdiction. And Fury does whatever the fuck he wants, I mean, he deems necessary. Of course DOOM's lines are tapped, he lets it be so in order to make them feel more secure and deter them from trying anything more drastic. Like sleeper agents.
>>28389988Thinking about it we could have just had Doom send a car from the UN to pick her up and bring her to the embassy.
Thought for sure we had an extra Spectacular point after we filled up, then only burnt two on stealth rolls to escape.
>>28390005If that was the case he would have stopped us from calling felecia
>>28389972I have a feeling Cos enjoys playing to our fears and make us sweat.Usually if we make a logical argument for how we really haven't screwed the pooch and can still keep things from getting crazy, he listens.>>28389961Again, why would someone as smart as DOOM allow phone calls to be traced from his embassy? He probably has magical interference if not technological interference.
>>28390005SHIELD is sometimes under US jurisdiction.Seems to be the case in the movies, Ultimates, and recent Marvel comics.
After passing the Perimeter, you hurriedly begin to Websling to Felicia’s at a fast pace, but not too fast of one for Doctor Storm. It takes you, at a fast pace, about twenty minutes.When you arrive there, you see a figure out front staring at the house, wearing a long coat with its hood up. It seems to be holding something in its hand, there’s also several bags next to the person.Landing, the figure turns towards you to reveal Felicia, her eyes blodshot.“What are you -doing- here?!”You step close to her. “I told you. I’m not going to leave you alone. I’m going to get you cured. And then we’ll figure things out.”You step closer to her even as she looks like she’s about to bolt and wrap your arms around her. “I screwed up, yeah. But I’ll do whatever it takes to fix things.”She struggles a bit before grabbing you. You feel something wet against your mask as you hear her sobbing. “I was scared. I was so, so scared. So I just didn‘t want to be here anymore. I just wanted to run. It was too much.”“I’m sorry, Felicia. I am so sorry.”It takes a little while before she calms down in your arms. “You’re an idiot and not allowed to do anything without my say-so anymore. Got that?”You nod as she tries to pull herself together, wiping at her nose. She freezes as she sees Susan Storm. “Relax, she’s’ in our boat. Somewhat. Regardless, I need to get you to the Latverian Embassy ASAP, alright?”“How?”“Leave it to me and Dr. Storm.”Doctor Storm takes a few moments to recover, and while she’s clearly tired, she’s still good to go one last time, turning the three of you invisible. And the three of you are off.>Roll me one last roll. It’s a stealth Check 1d20+9, DC18.
Rolled 17 + 9>>28390043What happens next?
>>28389972I think it's less that and more him wanting to be consistent. He can't just show us mercy because he likes running this quest. So we skipped to the mid game a little early and will thus be incredibly underpowered relative to the challenges thrown against us. We chose this path.
>>28390022That would probably give her a heart attack. Not the good kind.
Rolled 18 + 9>>28390043Alright, don't screw up now
Rolled 9 + 9>>28390043
Rolled 3 + 9Things are going better than expected, maybe?
Rolled 6 + 9>>28390043We already passed, and yet we most roll.And fall.
>>28390060>>28390069I ain't rollin' after these results now. Good job guys.
>>28390043Lets remember to pick up the fucking statue or the reversal wont work
>>28390043...Did we just use her real name in front of Sue?
>>28390065The way he phrased it made it sound like all his current plans had to be thrown out. We aren't going to be doing normal Spidey stuff from here on.
>>28390060>>28390069WELL DONEAnd i'm fine with running everything by Felicia first. She's the one with all the experience being covert and living multiple lives.
>>28390105Oh right, let's nab it really quick.
>>28389972Not. Helping.Seriously.Bad decisions were made. Now we have to deal with the consequences. You can't blame Cosgrove for current or future difficulties.
>>28390105THIS.And don't touch it with bare hands, who knows if it still has some voodoo left in it.
>>28390060>>28390069Well, this is going slightly better.I wonder what's being said on the news about the standoff at the Latverian Embassy?I wonder how Reed is reacting to Susan's flight.Crazy day for the papers I tells ya.
Rolled 18 + 9>>28390043DID WE PICK UP THE STATUE
>>28390043Oh thank god>>28390069Poor poor sue... reduced to an invisibility power-up.
>>28390060>>28390069You anons, you're good people in my book. And don't let /tg/ tell you otherwise, at least not until the dicedeamons have sapped your strength again. But for today, well rolled.
>>28390125i completely agree.
>>28390111I think it might just be that now SHIELD thinks we're a person of interest.And not in a good way.So no "We want you to be a junior member of SHIELD" and more "HALT CRIMINAL SCUM"
>>28390105Watch it turn out to not be a curse at all. She's a mutant.
>>28390109It's fine. She might as well know.Besides, Sue is the one who got us into this mess by convincing us that breaking out would be a good idea. Though we share the blame, she really shouldn't have asked us to do this.
>>28390133I doubt we left Felicia's bags in the street, statue's probably among the stuff.
Rolled 2 + 9>>28390136>Poor poor sue... reduced to an invisibility power-up.I laughed.
>>28390147You know, they'll probably figure out who we are. What are the odds we'll have to drop out of school and leave our house?
>>28390111I smell a Latvarian Arc maybe? Though that would mean Carnage going unchecked (or moving to Latveria).
>>28390136We should run away to Paris with Felicia and join the Heroes of Paris! Yes!
>>28390168The good news is, she is getting XP for the workout.Give her three weeks and she'll be operating at Malice level capacity.
>>28390136Just wait until she gets those force fields, and becomes more powerful than the rest of the Fantastic Four all put together.
>>28390043Sue gets a big thank you. A Huge One.And i suppose we could tell her what happened to us somewhat. "Science accident from a spider. I've built my equptment by hand though."
>>28390105OOPS!>>28390043Fuck. Cos. The fucking statue. We grabbed it, right?>>28390147We've been a person of interest to them ever since we faced off against Hobbs. They watch the fucking news too, and it's clear we have beyond-human abilities.
>>28390191Oh yeah, forgot about thoseThose let her fly too dont they?
>>28390186The EU *does* need a superhero A-Lister...
>>28390175Eh if they find out who we are, then they might just go "You're not a threat to America/the World, you're just a god damned moron."
>>28390196I wonder if she knows who Richard Parker is. He probably had a name in the scientific community.
>>28390186They dont exist yet and for all we know, after what we just pulled, they may never come into existence. Governments are gonna be even more paranoid about people with powers now...
>>28390215Well, until they can Captain Britain and the other Euro Captains up and running.
>>28390238Dude do you even read comics?Shit is happening ALL THE TIMEthis is normal
>>28390224We did steal the Storms, and we are the first public meta-human, and we did cause some major political bullshit. Stupid or not, we're kind of a big deal right now.
>>28390238It was technically perfectly innocuous.
>>28390191I don't know, Johnny really should be a lot more powerful than he's usually portrayed as being. At the top of his game he can put out fusion-level heat, that's a major ability. Fire powers generally aren't treated as seriously as they should be. The only fire-powered character I can think of that's as terrifyingly powerful as he should be is Willy Pete from Empowered, though being a villain he has a bit more leeway in that regard.
>>28390251I said "A-Lister." Not Captain Britain.
>>28390267They have nothing to connect us to breaking the Storms out of the Baxter Building.And no proof that the siblings are currently at the Latverian Embassy.The only thing that this is about is pretty much "Masked Weirdo calls other Masked Weirdo"
>>28390283Hard to use you powers safely around civilians when your spewing fire every which way
>>28390125What, you don't wanna end up Spider-cat?
>>28390267They don't have any proof of that.
>>28390283You dissing Roy Mustang?
>>28390314Not Spider-Ham anon? I am disappoint.
>>28390329to be fair, he did kinda jump from fire to nuclear explosions that happened to look like flames at the end
Rolled 16 + 9>>28390335What does ham have to do with the cursed cat statue, though?
>>28390335I'm looking forward to Baboon Von Doom.
>>28390125>>28390314Eh, Spider Totem would probably take care of that issue. That, and the statue's probably used all its juice. One-and-done type of curse, at least until the current victim's curse is broken and the cat returns to the statue.
>>28390314With our luck, we'd probably end up with big fat cat tats.>Nobody expected THAT spider-woman.
>>28390350Spider-Ham is actually a thing, would be a funny reference.>>28390372Yeah, Doom does not have a sense of humor.
>>28390329I meant in Western comics. Mustang is certainly a pretty terrifying opponent. When even immortal regenerating monsters run from your anger, you know you're officially a badass.
>>28390329Flame alchemy makes no godamn sense with how the rest of the magicscience is described as working.Pic semi related; it is most assuredly what Fury has evolved into at this point.
>>28390264Dude, this is the origin point for this universes age of superheroes. We get to be the one that makes the first impression of what a hero or at least superpowered person is like and how they relate to normal everyday life. We just broke a Lv5 quarantine and caused a massive international...look, our actions effect how this world will grow. Stark will clean up some of our mess with his PR department, but I don't know, I just feel like we failed something important. That we will bear the responsibility for all that results from this day.
Rolled 12 + 9>>28390383>Doom manages to find the magic word that breaks the curse and returns the cat to the statue>Felicia can now use the statue whenever she wants to transform into a catgirl, using the word to turn back when she's done
>>28390372are those worms on his face?
>>28390454He's from one of the zombie universes.
>>28390440They can't prove we did that.Because we're good at stealth.And honestly I don't see how a dude in a mask calling the embassy of another dude in a mask is such a big deal.
>>28390440REV UP THOSE CIVIL WARS CUZ BOY AM I HUNGRY FOR SOME REGISTRATION!
>>28390440We still don't actually know if it's to do with us. I figured the cops where there at the Embassy because we were there earlier today, and they're hunting us for stuff related to the Carnage thing.
>>28390454Maggots I think. That's from the Marvel Zombies vs Marvel Apes crossover, that's the Zombie Doom.
>>28390440All Spider-Man did today was be seen landing on the Latverian Embassy and making a phone call to that Embassy later in the day.Fury has probably long been expecting an end to the masquerade...he wasn't expecting it to be the weird fuck up that it has been.
>>28390474We were calling for fashion tips. We saw how amazingly Doom coordinated his mask with his outfit, and were hoping he could share some of his secrets.
>>28390483By which I mean that we don't know if it's to do with us breaking out the Storms.
>>28390484Who, incidently, survived with most of his nation from the Zombie plague.
>>28390499I'm amused no one has brought up the point that Richards probably wants to find Sue. And what Richards wants...Time for a whole new snafu.
>>28390518Wait, DOOM SURVIVED the zombie universe!?Holy shit
>>28390499For all they know, Sue broke herself and Johnny out on her own.
>>28390547I don't believe he did...
>>28390499That's true. I can just picture Xavier palm-slapping over the ludicousness over how the Masquerade was broken while watching in the Mansion.
>>28390505You would expect something more than just the police if SHIELD was involved. Are they Three Letter Agency types out there, or regular cops? It would change things a lot, in regards to how bad we've fucked up.
>>28390518I thought he blew up himself, the lab, the notes, the portal, etc.Or maybe that was just the Army of Darkness vs. edition.No more hamburger timeNo more hamburger time
>>28390547Doom technomagic'ked his entire sovereign nation away.Then, Ultimate Doom got himself stranded on planet Zombie and started laying waste with eldritch abomination magicks. This is after he started wearing boots to cover his goat legs.
>>28390540As we return to the embassy to find RICHARDS and DOOM are doing a superhuman battle in the middle of the street hurling FBI cars at eachother?Probably because Johnny showed DOOM what he could do. And RICHARDS thought ahead and brought a thermal camera.
Getting past the blockade is easier, especially with it seeming to have begun to break up. There’s only a few vehicles left. DOOM’s still out on the Balcony as you enter the open door behind him. Tapping him on the shoulder as you pass, you notice he nods and enters the room, securing it behind him a minute later. Susan Storm collapses into a chair looking haggard. Felicia looks around nervously as DOOM approaches and extends a hand. Felicia hesitantly extends hers es DOOM gently takes it into his hand and presses it against his mask as if to emulate the kissing of a lady’s hand. “DOOM would like to apologize, Fair madam, for the troubles you have been experiencing. However, DOOM assures you that if the Man of Spider’s phone was compromised, it was not on Latverian Grounds. DOOM himself has seen to that. There were also circumstances outside of his control that could not be helped.

>>28390559Weird thought: Latveria has a rather large gypsy populace, with many of DOOM's origins stories throughout the continuities involving him being of gypsy decent. It's plausible it could have been a place of refuge for those fleeing the Nazis. Such as a young master of magnetism freshly escaped from Dachau. We know DOOM has an interest in sheltering the mutant populace. What if Magneto is his mentor?
>>28390628>[X] Introduce Felicia to Johnny and Susan StormAfter the shit she's being put through, she deserves an explanation.
>>28390628Ask Johnny how he's holding up. Should be entertaining if nothing else.
>>28390628>[X] Introduce Felicia to Johnny and Susan StormAlso, explain to Felicia that the call couldn't have been traced, ask her how she's doing, and check her condition, does it look like she's stopped changing or is she turning into a housecat?

>>28390628>[ ] Introduce Felicia to Johnny and Susan StormIntroduce Johnny and Sue to Felicia first, though. Leave her the option whether or not to share her name with these strangers she's just met.

>>28390628>unclench anus>introduce felecia to the storms'
>>28390628>Johnny’s sitting there, looking like he wants to say something, while Susan is giving you and Felicia a melancholic look.I... I'm getting a terrible feeling here... Something deep in my stomach says "NO. Do NOT engage!" Pete's a sturdy guy, even if klutzes up enough to avoid being called 'reliable,' but I'm not sure he can take much more today. Just look at how Felicia's doing. Everyone just wants to get back to their normal routine, but everything we try to do to fix just seems like one step forward, two steps back.Typical Marvel. Ah well, Peter can totally endure screwing everything up so long as everyone lives.

>>28390779I'm thinking it's more the bond she's jealous of.
>>28390784Eh we don't need to apologize to them.We didn't get them in trouble at all.If anything they should apologize to us.
>>28390837To which we respond if Felicia doesn't correct him. "We met that night. She followed me after she escaped, we kinda hit it off,"

>>28390860Exactly. She's seeing young love while having all this trouble with her possible bf. For all her anger at him she does love Reed. Though, if he comes attacking the Latvaren Embassy she may change her mind.
>>28390847>we won't, but she's a girl with cat ears dressed in black hanging out with Spider-Man. It isn't a hard leap for even the Human Torch to make.
>>28390860True. We pretty much head Felicia off to make sure she got the help she needed and she responding by TRUSTING and FORGIVING us, however reluctantly. Way different than what Dr. Storms got going in the relationship department.
>>28390884No, she's thinking up more fun things to do with webbing and is quietly sighing sadly since she won't get to try them out with Peter.
>>28390884Man I hopes so.Also, what does /tg/ think of us trying to hook Reed up with Janet? Yeah I know we haven't met her yet, but think about what a less unstable Hank Pym could do for the world!
>>28390860Yeah. Felicia went through a strange and unsettling mutation and had constant reassurance and support from her boyfriend. Sue went through a mutation that was probably just as worrying and her sort-of boyfriend went all cold and clinical. She's probably feeling pretty bummed right now.
>>28390881Doom actually seems like a real bro here. I mean if he had a problem with us he would have said something. He seemed pleased we realized the magnitude of our fuck-ups and apologized. Probably more than Reed ever did.Also, shadowruns much?
>>28390884There is nothing connecting our call to the embassy with their escape from the Baxter building other than that they happened at roughly the same time.
>>28390884He might not attack. He might reasonably try to reach out to this former partner in SCIENCE if she has tried to contact him, and be completely distraught about it.Different Reed's handle abandonment differently. Right now we're dealing with Reed amid the greatest amount of personal guilt and melancholy.And with that, I'm going to bed.I know I say that but then show back up anyway, but I needs it...I needs it badly.....maybe I'll stick around for one more post.
>>28390930Do you really want someone like JANET prodding Reed? Imagine how much worse a Reed based Ultron would be.
>>28390930Unless Ultra Ulton on it?
>>28390930Janet didn't make Pym unstable, Pym is a mad scientist. Van Dyme just prompts him to use that madness for superheroics.
Rolled 6 + 9>>28390901But why would Johnny even be thinking about the Black Cat? That's not exactly big news currently, and he has more pressing things going on at the moment.
>>28390881>>Outside forces mysteriously withdrawingThey're withdrawing because they have nothing on us.See >>28390953
>>28390956It would be Herbie?
>>28390779No, I think she like that maybe because something similar might have happened with her and reed
>>28390941Spider Gypsy Quest: Adventures in Latveria?Get DOOM to bring Uncle Ben and Aunt May out to a lovely villa up here?
>>28390929We could always make her a pair of "fun time" web shooters, but I feel like Johnny would steal them and start playing sticky but unamusing pranks on everyone. Maybe we should introduce Sue to Gwen is she really just wants webbed wonderment?
>>28390930Think about what a more unstable Reed Richards could do TO the world! We don't need him hooking up with the physical manifestation of the concept of "crazy bitch".
>>28390965no she promps people to genocide, and rage
>>28390978Eh, bitches love Spider-Man.
Maybe if Cos goes with Ultimate Vision Reed could hook up with her. She's robotic and clinical just like he is.
>>28390965It's funny you think Janet's a good person. hank is unstable yes, but without her he wouldn't have founded the avengers done super heroics and would just stay a scientist with a hardon for bugs.Hank's no saint, but Janet is a catalyst for bringing out the worst in people.>>28390977Sure; provided Herbie wants to scorch the earth and burn all organics.>>28391031If we get Ultimate Reed... well at least he's young and stupid. We can tip that bandaid off quick and easy without the rattail mary sues and eradication of Europe and a batshit crazy Thor.
>>28390965Janet also sets of a whole serious of his problems. I'm saying remove a huge source of conflict from his life and get him to focus on science for another few years. He might not be a hero, but his Ultrabots have saved the world in his stead many times and helped peacefully usher in the singularity, leading to a stable modern golden age.Meanwhile, no one will ever forgive Richards for slapping his wife that one time...
>>28391031And about ten times more capable of empathy. It might actually work. She shows up on our planet to warn us about Gah Lak Tus, he builds the Ultimate Nullifier for her to disseminate throughout the universe, and in the process she develops an affection for him and leaves behind a copy of her software to keep him company.
>>28391052I never said Jan was a good person. I'm saying that Hank's problems come from Hank, not her.
>>28391097Hanks problems are Hanks yes; but janet just prods at that exposed nerve.
>>28390881Wait did we ever use our cell phone to call her?Also this time we buy TWO phones.Or none.
>>28391137Yes. Then we crushed our phone.
>>28391090And of course, we will activate the Ultimate Nullifier just to prove Ga Lak Tus wrong.
>>28391137Maybe see if we can make an untraceable phone or a scrambler ourselves.
>>28391174We have SO much engineering to do.Right after we stop Carnage from liquifying a little girl.We can do it while hunting for Hobby and Gwens stalker.Then we can hang out with Harry, go on a date with Felicia, Chat up Gwen, and even tutor Flash!
>>28391052Early Ultimate Reed was actually pretty cool. He clearly cared about his family and friends, he just got over-excited at times when he found a cool new piece of science. There was none of that cold and distant personality like 616 Reed has. All he wanted was to explore the universe and find new and amazing things out there to show people. Then came Thanos, and Ultimate Origins, and Ultimatum, and then he just got too disillusioned. Though the fact that he escalated straight from "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" to "create giant sapient mushroom monsters to kill everyone I disagree with" shows he probably wasn't that stable to being with and was just better at hiding it than 616 Reed.
If you think about it, this is all Reed's fault.
>>28391217Ultimate Sue Storm didn't help things any.
>>28391210>I support this course of actions once things calm the fuck down.
>>28391210You say that like half these things are still viable.
>>28391220Can't. Stop. Laughing.
You wrap your arms around Felicia and lightly run her back. You feel her somewhat relax. “Let me introduce you to Johnny and Susan Storm.”Dr. Storm shakes her head. “Call me Sue, Spider-man. You’ve put yourself in a deep situation for us, so you might as well call me by the name my friends do. I only caught your first name, but you don’t have to worry. Johnny and I won’t tell anyone anything, Miss Felicia.”Sue lets out a exhausted groan as Johnny’s eyes widen as he points at Felicia. “Are those-”SMACK.Moments later, Johnny’s clutching at his head. “What was that for?”Sue shakes her head. “Sorry about him. He’s an idiot. I’m Sue Storm. Spider-man got us out of being government lab-rats for the rest of our lives because our trip into space caused us to get super powers. Like you saw earlier, I can turn invisible. Johnny isn’t to use his powers, but he can create fire. We’re both hoping to get back to normal ourselves.”Felicia nods, leaning into your one-armed hug.. “It’s a pleasure to meet you.”Johnny stares at you, a contemplative look on his face. “Hey, Spider-man. Do you mind telling me who you are? I won’t tell anyone, but it’d be nice to call you by your name and not by your title.”Sue looks a bit contemplative herself. “I must admit, I am curious how you gained your powers myself, but I won’t pry if it makes you uncomfortable.”>[ ] Unmask yourself>[ ] “I’d rather not say anything on either matter, sorry.”>[ ] Don’t demask, but explain origin of your powers>[ ] write in

And that's not too much information. Of course, given how Parker Luck (the narrative convention, not the game mechanic) works, once Johnny is no longer a fugitive he's going to wind up finishing senior year of high school at our school, where he'll recognize Felicia, realize she's dating a guy named "Pete", and put it all together. But hey, that's small time worries compared to what other shit we're going through.

>MFW the old asian man with the creepy laugh that sold us the statue was Dr. Strange himself trolling random passerbys.
>>28391393And then it turns out that the old Asian man we bought the statue from was Wong. The Sorcerer Supreme has gone missing while on a spirit journey, and getting Felicia cursed was a plot on Wong's part to introduce us to the supernatural. We're the only incarnated Totem he could get to in time, and now that we're in the astral realm we can help rescue Master Strange.
>>28391375Shhhhhhhhhhhh.....>>28391393Oh Balls.Time for Totem Spidey, and possibly Madam Web helping us from a distance.It occurs to me, with a large amount of Supernatural Mumbo Jumbo in the process of going down...what are the odds of Doctor Strange showing up here to investigate?Okay, for serious this time. TO BED! ....I'll just take this laptop with me and...oh g-d...two weeks with my wife staying with her parents are going to kill me...I have no structure.
>>28391277Telling Sue and Johnny anything means telling Doom something. Don't tell any personal details. If we have to, basic information on how we got our powers.
>>28391501Hmmm....Sue helping work on the suit is a good idea.
>>28391375It's not a curse, she was chosen as a, well, not quite an avatar...she was chosen as a champion/representative of a goddess. Of course this is going to be much more complicated than DOOM just doing his thing. That's also way Strange was a safer bet to resolve this, but you take what you can work with and Vic ain't exactly a bad choice himself for this kind of thing.The real questing is if the Black Widow breaks in in the middle of the whole thing or not.
>>28391553I'm really confused with this whole totem business.What is it about, and what happens if we find the totem and this Madam Web?What does the totem itself do?What is the Web of Life?
>>28391484It's how it went down in the comics. And wealth hasn't stopped Harry from going to our school. Midtown is a magnet school, the whole point is that it draws in students from across a wide range of financial situations and geographical locations.
>>28391545>No, it was probably Wong, seeding curses for Doctor Strange to fix for his show to help keep the sponsors happy so he can carry out his real work.
>>28391545>He should have been here hours ago... maybe... maybe he's into that sort of thing?
>>28391590WE are the totem. We are a symbol of the Spider-God, endowed by her powers to protect the Web of Life.The Web of Life is a concept of all the various animal totems existing in harmony and is the realm of the Spiders.It's worth noting that even though Peter has MET the Spider-God, he doesn't believe in it.
>>28391605So Strange has been trying to contact us at the Parker residence this whole time is what you're saying?
>>28391585That was a completely different magical cat statue that was Egyptian styled.
>>28391616Teen Titan CYOAThey always end up deleting memories of people when they enter the spirit realm of some shit

Part Cosmic being who watches the web and the course of future events not unlike Sailor Pluto to try and steer toward the best possible futureSpider-man never found the totem, he is the totem. Back in the late 90's a plot arc was introduced with this big bad who came to America looking for Spider-man, his deal is that he eats the life force of humans who are empowered with the abilities of spirit animals. Peter is such an individual, and another spider-totem poses the question of "Did the radiation allow the spider to give you powers? Or was it trying to give them to you before the radiation killed it" it tied spider-man into a few spider-gods including Anansi of the west african spider tales. Eventually, a crazy non human spectral wasp totem tried to hunt him down and lay her eggs inside of him...but he trapped her in front of the alter of a spider totem god and let the natural order be flipped for a bit. It also gave him a power boost for a little while
>>28391662We have our own spiritual connection, as Spidey. He can just play on that, because we don't have to play Spidey as being so ridiculous that he pulls this >>28391629. He's liable to be a good deal more stupid elsewhere, though.
>>28391639>>28391652Only because when they're watching someone's memories they start panicing and interrupting instead of letting the proper memories play out.Like, needless panic greater than what happened earlier in this thread.

>>28391666>for a little whileIt's not so much that it wore off as it was retconned by his single worst arc.
>>28391688Yeah and it wasn't really the spirit realm, it was more like Psychonauts or whatever.
>>28391590Well, the comics have never been entirely clear on that, either, so Cosgrove has a lot of room to make up his own shit. What it boils down to is that, although Peter is a product of science, his status as a human-spider hybrid makes him receptive to the influence of some primal spirit of spiders manifesting through him. Think of spider-gods like Iktomi or Anansi, that's what's watching over him. As such, Peter has a mostly-undeveloped connection to the mystical realm, and is more readily aware of threats to the natural order or fabric of reality. Its some trippy shit.
>>28391688Not to mention it's almost always when a character is near death anyway. Because they are the child of Death the Endless.
>>28391607A few months down the track we end up official talking with the mystic guy. "Oh, Spider-man. You're the Furry, right?
>>28391652GODDAMN ITNO. NO MEMORY LOSING. NO MORE ONE MORE DAY.DON'T DO IT. Please cosgrove. I beg of you. This is the only spiderman related thing I like that came recently.I still haven't read Venom but the rest I dropped.
>>28391697A friend wrote a paper for their Master's degree on modern stories of faustian pacts and focused on One More Day. In fact, she compared it to several pages of XXX Holic and pointed out where Joe Quesada just lifted stuff from there.XXX Holic, the only faustian bargain story with a happy ending.
>>28391723Speaking of, we can try to get someone to elaborate on what Doom said IC instead of just brushing it off, right? Because we should do that when we can.
>>28391697>His single worst arcYou're going to have to be more specific.>captcha: his iderprioAh, that one.

>>28391763Last I checked the major plot arc of XXX Holic and Tsubasa Chronicle did end.Crazy kerfuffle of Faustian Pacts, Closed Loops in time, and unexpected ACTUAL continuity with Card Captor Sakura.
>>28391684I think it would be an appropriate response for Peter to, instead of denying the mystical connection, just rationalize it. There's no such thing as the supernatural. Not because supernatural phenomena don't exist, but because it's insulting to the idea of rational inquiry that we consider those things we label "magic" as being separate from the rest of the natural order. So we've discovered a spider god that's watching over our actions? Neat. Let's try to figure out the logical implications of that as it fits into the rest of mankind's knowledge of the universe. Just saying "nope, not real", is a coward's way of handling the situation.
>Giving Cosgrove ideas that will only ever cause us pain and anguishWe might as well just start collecting bookmarks NOW.
>>28391780I'm pretty sure this friend discounts and denies the existence of Ben Fraiser movies; or as an academic who trusted the professor not to be as well versed in certain aspects of pop culture, ignored things that helped disprove her thesis for this paper while promoting others that provide a better argument against her to make it look more thought out and serious.

>>28391794Peter never even struck me as being a big science geek, to be honest. He did do some inventing and engineering, but I feel like it was played up a bit more than there actually was to it.
>>28391814that look like "superior's" outfit.
>>28391818You say that now...
You shake your head. “I don’t really want to risk my identity right now. I’m feeling a bit paranoid, all things considered. As for how I got my powers?”You pause considering how much you want to tell.“Well, I was bit by a genetically engineered Spider.”Sue’s eyebrows raise. “Really? That doesn’t make sense unless-”“-It was an unintended consequence or the intention in the first place. I’ve also checked my blood regularly to see if they’re any mutations, but it seems that I’m stable. There’s a lot involved in that I’m trying to get to the bottom of, but it seems like some new problem pops up every day.”The three of you have small talk for what’s probably several hours until DOOM’s lab opens up as he walks in.“DOOM has isolated the curse. It is a powerful and dangerous thing. DOOM will give you two solutions, Man of Spiders. You may let DOOM sever you from your powers as a sacrifice to kill the curse, or you may let DOOM send you into the future, allowing DOOM time to work on a cure that you may retrience and return with.”He raises a finger. “DOOM had considered letting you try to fight it within the Spiritual Realm, but there’s no telling what damage you might unwittingly do there, so DOOM is taking that off the table.”You raise an eyebrow. “The future? Why? It shouldn’t be too hard, should it?”DOOM crosses his arms and shakes his head. “Unfortunately, Man of Spiders, this curse will become permanent after three days. Following that, it will slowly and systematically begin destroying her mental facilities until the madam is nothing more than a feral Human and Feline hybrid.“These are the ONLY two options DOOM can present you. And if you lose your connection to your abilities, it shall be for the rest of your life. You will never regain them as long as you live.”

speaking of awful things and being facebooked... 558Whoooo yeeeaaaa brother!
>>28391856I feel like he tabled that because of all the jumping around we just did in Cosgrove's plans.
>>28391856Well, I suppose the safest option is...TIME TRAVEL! WOOO!Let's ask Johnny if he wants to come.
>>28391875>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.
>>28391875>>[X] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.
>>28391875Obviously we can't give up our powers. Send us away, DOOM.
>>28391856Well, good thing this is PETER PARKER Quest, because it's not like we're gonna do the dangerous thing DOOM told us not to do, right?Oh who am I kidding.
>>28391875>>28391856...Cosgrove, why are you acting like this is a choice?[X] The Future
>>28391875>>[X] The FutureWe can also get info on other shit like who Carnage is and such.
Going into the future means Anya is as good as dead....
>>28391856No more powersIt's been a good run boys, but now I think its time to leave the spider man behind and become Peter Parker: Agent of Shield
>>28391856>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.This is her call.Perhaps we need to get a Second Opinion if you catch my drift...
>>28391856Time travel ? that sounds great !
>>28391875Cosgrove, if we don't get to meet Miguel O'Hara during this, I will hate you forever. FOREVER!
>>28391917We go to the future, grab the cure, and come back. Because if he has to make the cure, there won't be time to administer it.She's already as good as dead, deal with it
>>28391856> No powers
>>28391875>The Future"I assume you can only send one person at a time?"
>>28391875>[X] The FutureGoing to lean heavily on this option.But first.>[X] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.She just had us promise to consult her before doing stupid things. So let's start consulting.
>>28391875>>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.Also: How far in the future?
>>28391856[ ] Write in"...Wait, time travel's possible?! Ok, how far into the future would it be, how easy is it to come back, and how big's the risk of something going wrong like accidentally going to some horrible future?"
>>28391875>>[ ] Write in"... There's another person with identical powers to me who doesn't want them. Would her powers serve as a sacrifice?""..... I would have said something earlier, but every time I try to get a handle on how weird my life is getting, it gets weirder, so I've stopped trying to understand it 100% and just go with the flow."
>>28391875> No powersSorry, miss linked first vote. Very tired over here.
>>28391856Well shit....future time. We can't lose our powers. Too much shit in the future like fire lord.Tell Felicia to stop carnage. Tell her the truth about Gwen. She going to need the help.TIME TO DO THE TIME WARP.
>>28391946This isn't stupid, though. This isn't even a choice, really.
>>28391917How? We're going back and forth.And I assume the history we see won't be what must happen.
>>28391925>This is her callHold her hand.Wait...we go to the future, Doom fixes us, and we continue from that point or get sent back into the past? Miguel O'hara here we come if future wins.Huh...a thought....in some Marvel canons, The Doctor exists.
>>28391917We'd go into the Future and get sent back to moments after DOOM send us in the future presumably.
>>28391875>[ ] The FutureWe can delay the journey for at least a day, right? To make the proper preparations and stuff.>>28391913>We can also get info on other shit like who Carnage is and such.I like the way you think.
>>28391875>[x] No powersYou guys are greedy fucks. Just do it.
>>28391968>>28391972You're right, I misread it. Nevermind, full speed ahead!
>>28391875>>[x ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.
>>28391875>[ ] The Futurewe can't go the no powers route until we stop our biggest fan
>>28391875>I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.No matter what we should do this first.Also I'm confused, what exactly is the downside of time travel beyond the future potentially being dangerous?
>>28391952>My>FACE>WHEN>We manage to procure a futuretech Spider-Man costume
I'm...I'm really curious about how this quest would turn out if we gave up our powers to save Felicia.Science Hero! Peter Parker Quest is go?
>>28391975Crazed serial killer, leaving Gwen having to deal with Oscorp solo, Hobgoblin still on the loose.
>>28391997It is tempting, just to see the path...
>>28391875>>[ ] The Future"Send me to the future. When I get there, teach me everything I need to know to fix this, even if it means training me to perform the third option you don't want on the table. I'll do whatever it takes to solve this. I made the mess, it's my responsibility to fix it."
>>28391997SHIELD or Stark beckon...
Wow...I guess no one care's that Felicia is on the verge of a panic attack?Everyone is so gung ho about the future, but what happens when we don't think and jump on an option? We take time, we should be talking to Felicia, guys.Okay, bed, for reals this time. I mean it.Thank you for an awesome thread, Cosgrove. I'll read it tomorrow morning before it falls off board or from the archive.
>>28391875>[ ] The Future
>>28391917Actually we can save her.Find where she got murder, go back in time with cure, save Felicia. Save Anna, get carnage.Victory.
>>28391997We could turn into Kamen Spider
>>28391875>[ x I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.calm her ass down, than go to the future
>>28391875>>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.We need to calm her down. And, she told us we needed to talk to her before we made any more mistakes.
>>28391875>[x] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.
>>28391856Talk to FeliciaThis is the ONLY optionIf she wants to do future we need to find out why and what the details are.
>>28391875Even if we're set on the future, can we talk to Felicia anyway?
>>28391875>The FuturePhrase it in a way that doesn't make us sound like an ass, okay Cos? We would genuinely consider the 'give up our powers to save Felicia' thing, but the future choice does seem like an option without downsides. "What exactly are the implications of this 'Future' business?
>>28391875>>I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.
>>28392021Of course we are. We're going to talk to her beforehand.Hey, can anyone come with us? Johnny would do it in a heartbeat.It would give him the opportunity for a team-up with little to no consequences unless we manage to get killed or seriously wounded.He might even learn to fly. All in all, we need a bro. He can be that bro.
>>28391875>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.We JUST promised to talk things over with Felicia.

>>28391875>>[ ] I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.Then>>[ ] The Future"Felicia, darling. I'm going to the future. I may be some time
>>28392021She just found out she's three days from a lobotomy. Time is of the essence here. We need this fixed ASAP.
>>28391875talk to the girl with the big fat cat tats
>>28391875>I need more time to think and talk with Felicia.We really should have bought her that scarf.
>>28391995You cant do that Spiderman!It'll create a time paradox!
>>28392070You're right, changing my vote to this. The questions about time travel can wait.
>>28392092Grabbing something from the future shouldn't produce a paradox.
>Talk to herWe going to the future, but talk to her about what she feels about it.Shit getting crazy like time travel.
If we go to the future, we're coming back with vague information about some kind of disaster or crisis that we need to rally other heroes to stop. That is a hallmark, and helps us with goal/time management.
We better tell Felicia we love her before we go...
>>28391875>talk it over with significant other.>what'll it cost us to see the future?
