Kamen Rider WAR Quest, Episode 5>King’s Heir, Blue Flames, and the Legendary Driver>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kamen%20Rider%20War%20QuestYou enter into the base as nonchalantly as possible. Everyone’s gathered around the table- Josephine is doing some paperwork while Jupiter’s sitting, his hand rhythmically tapping the cigarrette pack he’s got in one hand against the table. Emily is sitting there, quietly enjoying a cup of tea.Entering the room, you sigh and sit down in your chair as Jupiter lets out a snort. “Finally you’re fucking here. What took you so long in the garage?You shrug, feeling exhausted suddenly. “I was busy thinking over some things- lost track of time. Sorry, man.”Josephine finishes off a page before clicking her pen closed and setting it down. Her single eye is trained on you. “So, what happened?”Emily sets down her cup of tea before staring at you with a serene expression.>[ ] Tell them the whole situation, including Mezool>[ ] Tell them about Kogami- exclude any mention of the Greeed>[ ] Tell them nothing- remain tight-lipped>[ ] Write in

>>28606736>>[ ] Tell them about Kogami- exclude any mention of the GreeedI don't know if emily knows or not, but damn I don't want to tell her./
For the first time, I'm glad PPQ *isn't* being run.
>>28607428Otherwise we'd have to continue coping with a murdered Flash.It hasn't been Pete's week.Now it's time for another wrecked future, this one with Riders instead of clones.
You sit silent for a moment, considering your options and what the consequences might be. Ultimately, though, you know you’ll have to come clean. Keeping secrets from your friends is fast track to getting into a situation where they’ll be manipulated to go against you. You pull out of your pocket a [Gaia Memory] and set it down- the blue of the memory with a ‘T’ stylized like a gun- [Trigger], along with the three blue [Core Medals] as you start to explain everything- a quick glance at Emily convinces you to keep her out of the story in a meaningful way.But- barring that sole exclusion, you tell them everything about what happened- your fight with RANGER, meeting Mezool in the [Gaia Library] and your initial refusal, followed by fighting the [Yummy] and meeting Kogami who is seeking the [Core Medals] of the [Greeed], along with [An Ancient Relic That Resembles a Driver].His offer, and the costs, along with Mezool’s desperate agreement, granting you more control over your [Eternal Memory] along with the [Trigger Memory], and of the choice you gave her- rather than give her a body you kept her as a [Core Medal] to boost your power.As you finish, there’s silence along the table- across from you Emily takes another drink of tea, looking thoughtful. Jupiter’s got his brow furrowed, looking a bit confused and angry. Josephine seems to have picked up the [Trigger Memory] and is looking it over calculatingly with her one eye.Finally, with a loud ‘clink’ Emily sets down her tea cup again.“So, Julian- I’m curious as to how you suggest we proceed from here.”>[ ]Delay- ask her opinion first>[ ] Delay- ask Josephine’s opinion first>[ ] Delay- ask Jupiter’s opinion first>[ ] “We find where he’s staying and attack tonight.”>[ ] “I meet him in the morning and tell him no deal.”>[ ] Delay Kogami for the time being- We need to focus on the more immediate threat and opportunity- defeating other riders nearby.>[ ] Write in
>>28607466Spoiler: Same future.
>>28607490...that just increases our chances of getting Leopardon. I approve if this is the case.
>>28607489>>[ ] “We find where he’s staying and attack tonight.”
>>28607489Delay - Ask Jupiter's opinion firstDelay - Ask Josephine's opinion secondDelay - Ask her opinion third.We need the power of teamwork and friendship up in this bitch.
>>28607489>Write in"I was thinking to meet with him tomorrow and to call the deal off. This guy sounds like bad news. Although I'm not really a fan of the alternative either. Jupiter; you look like you've got something on your mind.">>28607466Hasn't been his week? Hasn't been his day. It's a rough 24 hours.
>>28607577Seconding. Ask for opinions.
>>28607580We need to totally put on the symbiote. With the way shit's been going, Peter's going to need it. Even if the Useless Trio complains.
>>28607621The one that even the sociopath driving the truck says is trouble?Anyway, lets discuss that quest in that quest's thread. Or a QTG.
>>28607744It might be trouble, but I didn't see her jumping out there to help us fight Carnage or trying to protect Flash. At least we know where the Venom Symbiote stands, and that it has our back when pushed. Also, it totally remembers Peter, it did the Hand thing again/
>>28607815The Doktor isn't a fighter, and Alice seems to shut down emotionally and psychologically in the presence of CARNAGEHad we played Alice, Spidey probably wouldn't have fought alone because she would have been backed by Player Agency...I suppose hindsight is 20/20
>>28607815We know Flash Thompson had our back and that the Symbiote wasn't enough to save his life. The only thing we know about the suit is it's dangerous as hell.
>>28607984Can't be too dangerous, Flash used it for god knows how long.
>>28607848ONORE DIKEIDO!!!didn't knew there be this quest today I'm lucky to catch this thread!
>>28608045Should follow Cosgrove on Twitter @QuestOpCosgrove. I have it set up to text me when he posts.
Spiderman, pls go. We know you're the Riders' weird uncle, but do you have to stand in their thread?>>28608078Same here.
>>28608116right then, back on topic.Whose worried about our PSYCHO traitor Rider yandere girl?
>>28608143not really yandere, she's not obsessed with us or demanding we not talk to other girls or anything.
>>28608143Everyone. You just know she's gonna pull something. Probably tell Dioboss that we have Mezool.
>>28608167Rephrase then, the PSYCHO girl who thinks we're as batshit as she is and is following us on the off chance we do something worse than what she had planned.
>>28608143I'm having a hard time catching up with the quest since I know nothing of Kamen Rider... Which one is the psycho traitor rider yandere girl?
>>28608078Yes I shoud get a Twitter to make it esyar foloing the quest i likeI just I'm not very adept of this kind of thing>>28608143Why shoud we dood
You smile at her. Ignoring everything that’s happened, you try to think of her as the girl you used to know, at least for now. “Well, while I’m leader, I always like to get everyone’s opinions and establish what the overall group’s opinion is before I weigh in. So, lets start with Jupiter, who seems to have something to say.”He taps a cigarette back into its pack. “Well, firstly I was out there, so learning that this fucker was sitting around doing nothing while we all had a goddamn monster trying to kill us doesn’t make me think well of him. Secondly, I don’t want to work for an asshole like that anyway- especially since according to your monster pal it means bad news. And I don’t think he’ll take well being turned down, but he‘s not stupid enough to not be prepared for it. So, let’s do what we always do- find out where he’s staying, his defenses and then chase him the hell out of town before he can be prepared. Or kill him to get another asshole Rdier out of the running.”He gestures over to Josephine, who sets down the [Trigger Memory]. “Well, we have a good portion of the day, so we have two real options here- we leave the [Territory] to invade another- one of the ones that will lead us to sea access and to give you another power increase and he’s not able to do anything as you’d currently be involved in a [Territory Match] an couldn’t interfere- if he did he’d draw Foundation X’s eye. If youk eep doing this, he’ll have to eventually leave- he’s got his own [Territories] to protect. Or we can strike. I don’t think he’d be stupid enough to just believe we work for him- he’s likely insist on an agent of his to be placed within our ranks that reports back to him. >1/2
>>28608288“Striking him while he’s unprepared is a possibility, but he ALSO might have considered this, too. You said he stated he fought against vampires- nocturnal attacks are something he likely deals with often. It’s likely this won’t end well no matter what we do, though, especially as we don’t have a second Rider while his assistant might also be one.” She pauses and closes her eye, rubbing at her eye patch in thought.“I’d suggest trying disable him before he can transform, personally. Barring that, play on his pride to have him face us with a handicap- if he loses he leaves, if he wins we work for him. It’d play to his pride well enough.”As she finishes, Emily glances back and forth before letting out her ‘devious chuckle’- where she tries to be ‘devious’ but it ends up as cute. Considering her [True Nature] though, its more like she’s good at playing dumb.“I like Josephine’s idea. Let’s show them our Just ways and beat them by using their pride against them! Then, as the door hits him on the way out, we then begin the campaign to take Texas so Jack Henry can come out to support us in the open.”Emily proudly puts her hands on her hips and lets out a huff. “There, another genius plan by your truly!”Josephine shakes her head, mouthing “…but that was my plan.”>[ ] Jupiter’s got the right idea- take him out tonight.>[ ]Josephine’s got the right idea- take on another [Kamen Rider], again and again until he just leaves.>[ ] Emily’s got the best plan- (But it was actually Josephine’s)- use his pride to bait him into a handicapped fight to make him leave you alone.>[ ] Write in

>>28608516>thinking we're capable of beating anyone if it's not just a gank.
You close your eyes in thought. There’s a lot of division in opinions, but out of the plans, there’s one clear winner. Taking out the [Eternal Memory], you twirl it in your fingers before pressing it’s priming switch as it let’s out its distinctive cry.Opening your eyes, you smirk. “I’m not working for Kougami, so I might as well use his own pride against him to give myself a chance.”You look over at Jupiter. “Try to get me any information you can on this guy. The more we know, the more potential sway I can get over him using his pride.”Jupiter nods getting up and putting the cigarette back into its pack. “Got it, I’m on it.”As he heads out Josephine hands you back the [Trigger Memory].“So, when will we attack? Tonight or in the morning?”>[ ] Tonight>[ ] The Morning
>>28608861>>[ ] The MorningIf he's fighting vampires, that's the time he's not expecting an attack.
>>28608892Thing is, time zones. He probably hasn't adjusted to Texas time quite yet, so...
>>28608861>Morning"Either way he'll anticipate an attack; however he his night fighting skills are most likely very formidable, so ambushing him won't work with the plan at all. Instead when we meet tomorrow I'll give him my ultimatum in public which should rattle his cage and come off as more professional. It'll also give Jupiter some time to pull information on this guy so the chances of success will be higher."
“We’ll attack in the morning, it’ll give us more time to be prepared, attacking him at night isn’t ideal as he fights vampires normally. Therefore, he’ll likely be more pliable during the morning. It’ll also give us time to be well rested for the fight.”The two of them nod, Josephine’s gathering up the paperwork, getting ready to head to her office, while Emily is sitting at the table with a serene smile on her face.There’s a lot that rides on tomorrow morning- one way or another you’re going to fight Kougami. Here’s to hoping that you win.>[ ] Follow Josephine to her office.>[ ] Stick back and talk with Emily over tea.>[ ] Experiment on how the [Trigger Memory] will interact with your [Eternal Memory]>[ ] Write in

>>28609311>[ ] Experiment on how the [Trigger Memory] will interact with your [Eternal Memory]It'd be good to get a grasp on how our new toy works if we want to win this thing and I don't think Josephine is going to be able to offer any more sage advice right now.
>>28609311>[ ] Stick back and talk with Emily over tea.
>>28609311>SCIENCE! ...And talking to the psycho at the same time.
>>28609311>[ ] Experiment on how the [Trigger Memory] will interact with your [Eternal Memory]
So... anyone hanging around? Seems pretty empty for a Cosgrove quest...
You lean back in your seat and play with the [Trigger Memory] until Josephine leaves- when you hear her office door down the hall close, you glance at Emily. She’s still there with her tea cup, but it seems like she’s dropped her innocent persona.Giving you a grim smile, she rests an elbow on the table so she can lean her chin against her fist. When she speaks, her voice is low.“Risky move, you know. Not only challenging this guy but also telling us all of that. Now that I know all this, I could easily just kill you and go on a murder spree towards ultimate power.”You tense as your eyes narrow before she waves you off with her other hand. “Don’t worry about it, I work for you after all- you should be spending time trying to get better with your [Gaia Memory]- who knows what you’d be able to do with the new one you got.”You nod. “I had already planned to.”Getting up from the table, she heads over to the tea pot on the counter and pours herself another cup before pouring another, fixing up the cups with her back to you, you can’t see the cups themselves as she walks back and places a cup in front of you before sitting back down. You glance down at this cup before looking at Emily.“Go ahead, take a drink. After all, you can trust me, right?”You scowl at her and open your mouth but- She pauses and raises an index finger. “Next you’ll say, ‘Emily, do you really expect me to drink this tea now?”“Emily, do you really expect me to drink this tea now?”You freeze as she lets a crazed grin cross her face. “Of course I do. To beat someone crafty enough to outsmart someone who battles bunches of batty bloodsuckers you need to think ahead of them by several steps- always consider what you’d do if you were put in the enemy’s position.”>1/2
>>28610023Draining her tea in one gulp, she wipes at her mouth with a handkerchief. “Besides, if I was going to kill you it wouldn’t be with poison.” Getting up, she heads towards the door. Gritting your teeth with confusion and hurt, you glance at the teacup before you look back at her.“Next you’ll say, ‘Why do you keep helping me even after you betrayed us?”“Why do you keep helping me even after you betrayed us?”You freeze as she sees through you once again. Not even glancing backwards, he heads out.“That, Boss, is for me to know."And then she’s gone. Letting out a sigh before glancing at the teacup, you let grimace. Draining the cup, you notice that it tastes of salt as you force it down. Not poisoned, sure enough, but not pleasant either- something you’ll have to choke down and deal with. Just like the person who made the cup.You head out to the practice range you have- it was formerly a barn of some sort. Heading inside, you transform into [Kamen Rider Eternal]- your arms are red- you can go Blue Flare, but only once a day per transformation. In your hands is the [Trigger Memory].You test it out over the course of the next hours-using as [Red Flare] in your [Maximum Drive] slot spawns a pistol that’s blue with a [Maximum Driver] slot in it. You only have a certain number of shots with it- 20, plus one maximum drive shot that’s exponentially stronger.There’s no way you can risk your needed [Blue Flare] as it might be needed tomorrow, so you get yourself somewhat proficient with your memory- it recharges once an hour but using its [Maximum Drive] will end your transformation still.Letting your last attempt end, you sit down and let out a sigh of relief. The range is a mess- Josephine will have your ass, probably, but you feel better about the [Trigger Memory]. Without another [Lost Driver] though, it seems to only be useful to you.>[ ] Call it a night>[ ] Visit someone (Write in)>[ ] Write in
>>28610039>Call it a night
>>28610039>Check with Jupiter to see if he's dug anything up yet>Then call it a night
You pause, thinking about seeing Jupiter about if he’s gotten anything done yet, but you’re tired and that would probably piss him off. You head to bead early after a quick dinner, your alarm set for an hour before sunrise. You get ready and head downstairs to see everyone assembled.Jupiter’s asleep at the table but he’s got a notepad out with writing on it. Picking it up, you notice it’s full of his notes on what he could find on Kougami. With these notes, you might have a chance to find a chink in the armor of Kougami- something that would stir up his proud nature to accept a duel with a handicap.You get into the back of the Jeep- Emily’s driving with Josephine in shotgun as the three of you head out to the meeting place to have your encounter. >To be continued.>Not a lot of activity and I’m tired going to call it here tonight.

This quest isn't nearly as popular as it deserves to be; then again PPQ got off to a slow start too...
