You are in some kind of void. Thousands, millions, infinitely many of you are in this void. Mulling and turning and blending through one another, seeing through each other’s eyes at the endless void around you. But there is a faint blue light in front of you, hanging in the void. When you reach out and touch it, it gives way like thick water. You claw forward, pushing more and more of your arm through. By the time you push your other hand through the light there’s only a few hundred of you, and less every moment, all collapsing into one. Your head is next. When you manage to push your face through the surface, your memories begin churning again. You died. You had been living a dull life of unemployment, and then you died. And now you are here.At last you push through the murk and fall through to the other side. You land on your hands and knees. Mud is dripping off your body and obscuring your eyes. “So another has emerged from purgatory.”Someone else responded, “Will you kindly go fuck yourself with your religious bullshit? If you go now, you should might be pulling your head out of your asshole by the time things get rolling.”You wipe your eyes clear as best you can as the two men continue to bicker. Before you is a room filled a handful of other people, all covered in the same mud as you. And on the far wall is a large computer screen overlooking the whole room. On it is a single message. “Something came up, brb”Actions?
>>28676263Spam the computer with questions until the person comes back.
>>28676263Look around for anyone you might recognize/be able to talk to. If not, wait patiently while ignoring your existential crisis.
>>28676263Observe our body, look for changes.Otherwise, approach computer and type in "Where do I go to complain about the life I had just lived?"
You pull yourself up to your knees to look around. There are five other men in the room with you. Two are standing together on your left near a door. One is rather average looking with glasses, a beard that needs to be shaved, and an old wool coat. The one next to him must stand nearly seven feet tall and must be a body builder. Laying in the middle of the ground is a kid barely out of highschool, quietly staring at the ceiling. To your right are two men in middle age. By the looks of it, the one talking about purgatory is, was a homeless man and he is vehemently staring at the bodybuilder. The last man you recognize however, he sold you a used car a few years back. The police confiscated it while investigating a murder.“So, where’s the complaint box?” you ask as you stagger to your feet. You take a quick glance over your body and don't notice anything strange, except there's no damage to yourself. You feel perfectly healthy, and your phone and keys are missing.“We don’t got one of those I’m afraid,” the body builder says as he walks up to you, smiling. “Name is Joseph, welcome back to the world of the living.”You stare at him as he grabs your hand and shakes it. “But I died.”“We all did,” the kid on the ground comments. Now that you’re standing you can see that he’s twiddling with a cigarette in his hand.How did you die?Actions?
>>28676263Those two seem to know each other. Are they other versions of us?
>>28676484"Well, alright, so why are we all waiting here?"
>>28676484car accident.another car lost control and caused a chain accident. got crushed and bleed out before they could get you out of the wreckage.>> standup, are we naked? if not what are we wearing?
Follow up questions that I forgotWhat was your job?What is your name?
>>28676484Shake his hand back firmly. Cause of death: Motorcycle accident. We were running late for work. We would have taken our car, but the cops confiscated it because it was part of a crime scene.
>>28676484We died in an unfortunate smelting accident.Our job was to inspect the quality of uranium ores.We've forgotten our name.
>>28676588>JobInsurance Fraud investigator.>NameAlice Mcpherson. Unless this is a room that's designed for dead guys only, which begs the question, where do dead women go?
>>28676664you were unemployed, and the car was taken over a year ago.
>>28676696While wandering through an abandoned foundry looking for murderhobo equipment a vat of inexplicably molten metal toppled on us, killing us.Formerly, we had been a safety inspector for steel mills and such.
“Care to fill me in on what we’re doing here?” you ask as you wipe more mud off of your clothes. They appear to be the same clothes you had been wearing before you died. Same shirt, same jeans, except that you notice the zipper and button are missing from them.“We’re waiting on everyone else of course, six people isn’t enough to do much of anything you know,” Joseph answers as you shake his hand back.“Six people is more than you need to do anything but take over a country,” Hank, the car salesman, grumbles. He has been staring at the computer screen, not looking at you.“More people is usually a good thing, if you have someone in charge,” the man in the glasses says.At that, Joseph drops your hand and turns back to him. “Well said brother.”“Another one is coming through the gate!” the homeless man shouts as he pushes you out of the way. You turn around and see that the wall behind you was the same blue light you had seen from inside the void, and there is a hand pushing through the wall, stretching it out like a gooey membrane.“Oh, it is a girl this time!” Joseph announces, his voice booming through the room, as her face presses through the muck. The membrane finally reaches its limit and snaps, letting her fall through to the ground. She begins coughing and splattering the mud off of herself as Joseph strides up to her.Actions?
>>28676787>LET THE MEN, TAKE CARE OF THE WOMENStride up and tell her how they said it was.
>>28676693I like the name.
You try to walk up to her and help her to her feet, but Joseph pushes you out of the way, the force of his arm far beyond what you expected. “Here, let me help you up. Are you feeling alright? You may be a bit disoriented,” he says as he takes her hand and helps her up. You notice his brother rolling his eyes.“Oh, I’m fine, really. Where am I?” she asks, looking around the room. “And why am I covered in mud?”“It’s not mud, it’s just hydrocarbons and the like,” the brother adds.“So you do know something!” Hank shouts, leaping to his feet and pointing at him.The brother takes a deep breath and sighs. “I’m a microbiology major. I recognize primordial soup when I see it. We were probably constructed out of it, which would explain why we only have organic stuff on us.”“But isn’t there iron and stuff in us?” the kid asks as he rolls to a seated position. The brother shrugs.“You have nothing to worry about, I am Joseph, and I will make sure nothing bad happens to you whatsoever,” you hear the bodybuilder saying as you edge back over to him.“Do you remember anything about how you got here?” you ask.“Last thing I remember was getting in an accident on the freeway…” she answers.Actions?
>>28676977>Wonder why we aren't a pretty girl, and why we lost our job.
>>28677002It's like you don't even want the secret harem ending
>>28677002Does that actually matter to you?
The computer screen lights up behind you, and everyone turns to look at it. “Alright, I’m back. Right. Sorry about that. Anyways. What’s up chucklefucks?”“Did that thing just call us chucklefucks?” Hank asks a moment before the kid starts laughing.“This must be a test of our faith. The seven of us have gathered here for sins committed in life, and now we are being tested by the devil!” the homeless man shouts, pointing at the computer.More text appears on the monitor. “You think I’m the devil? ;_; And after I saved your life too. Such a thankless task this is, bringing you shitheads back to life. And why are there only seven of you? There should be thirteen.”“Don’t ask us, how the fuck would we know?” Joseph’s brother asks.“Right! Well, if you’re already that low on people, another one missing won’t matter much,” the computer says. You notice Joseph step between the girl and the homeless man. “You really are alive right now,” the computer says.An explosion rips through the room, blood splatters everywhere as the sound sends you reeling. Something had detonated inside the homeless man’s chest and ripped him in half, painting the room in his blood.“The name’s Huey, shortened from Heuristics and shit. I worked very hard on bringing you all back to life, so don’t piss it away. Now who’s ready for work?” the computer asks as the girl, the kid, and Hank all start shouting.Actions?
>>28677106>>28677235Isn't me.It was greentext, so it was a joke. For future reference though, if people are making decisions about their background, it's best to feed them relevant thing so that know what they're working off of. We are a male, and we lost our job a year ago. These things were decided ahead of time, which means some stuff about our character must have been decided ahead of time. So, who are we?>ActionsAsk why the homeless man asploded.
>>28677463You are male, you are unemployed, you live alone in a run down part of town, you aren't close with your family. Nothing else is set down and these are just to simplify some things later on
>>28677387"Please don't blow me up Mr. Computer. I'm game for whatever."
>>28677503Good to know.
“What the fuck. What the actual fuck,” you ask as you stumble away from the corpse.“What did you put in my chest?” Hank roars as he rips his shirt open to reveal a metal plug in his sternum. You quickly follow suit and find one in your chest as well. You look around at everyone else in the room, everyone seems to have one.“Just a bit of insurance for myself. Nothing big, it’s only like five grams of high explosives. Calm your tits,” Huey responds.“That’s apparently enough to kill us though, why the fuck should I be calm?”“Because your life is mine. I saved it, I get to take it away, until you pay me back the life I gave you. And I obviously can’t let you go spilling secrets, so that’s there to make sure things stay nice and quiet about me. If you want it out, you’ll have to pay me back all the lives I’m owed,” Huey responds.“So what, we have to kill or something?” you ask.“Duh, no shit. How the fuck else do you pay back lives? Souls aren’t worth matter bro. If they were I wouldn’t be bringing people back to life. Kill 42 people for me, and you all get to go home. Simple as that.”Joseph lunges forward. “Forty-two? It should only be thirty-seven!”“Chill out Broseph. You know the amount rolls up every time I bring another person back to life.”Actions? Response?
>>28677607"Whoa, hold on. Could you explain everything in detail? Holy shit, Huey. What the fuck? Name of the game. Details, dude."
Do we need to bring back 42 a pop, or do we combine our total?
“Stop, slow down, please. Could you explain that in detail. Holy shit, Huey. What the fuck? Name of the game. Details, dude,” you ask as Joseph growls and slowly walks back to the wall.“You dense or something? I could have sworn I kept all of you at 1. Anyways, for the stupid among you, let me break this down.1. You all died2. I brought you back3. I now own you4. You want out, you play the game5. The game is murder6. Kill 42, and you get to go7. And there will be prizes! /fireworksDid you get that? The nine of you should be able to manage that.”You glance back and see two more people pushing through the membrane. One person on the left is walking through, rather than using their hand, and the person on the right is falling through. When they break through you see that on the left is a large Australian man who doesn’t seem to be at all disturbed, but on the right is a girl, college age, and all of her clothes have been torn off.“So you want us to just go murder random people or you’ll blow us up?” Hank asks, ignoring the new arrivals.“What? No fuck that. Why would I do that? I have like a huge fucking list of people I want dead. Why would I waste your kills on random people when I could be offing people moving in on my turf?”Actions? Response?
Ask him why he brought us back. We were a foundry inspector, not exactly a trained killer.
“Right then, what the hell’s going on here, mates?” the man asks as he brushes mud off his chest. “Name’s Bruce.”Joseph’s brother walks over to explain to him as Joseph rushes to the side of the girl. You walk up to Huey. “Why did you bring me back? I’m not a killer, I’m just a foundry inspector.”“>_> Cuz your corpse was unrecognizable. Do you have any idea how fast I’d be found if clones started walking around?” Huey explains.“I’m a clone?”“No shit, what the hell did you think the vat was for? I got a couple more back there too. So I hope you fucks are ready to head out, because I’m getting bored. I hate explaining things,” Huey says just before the new girl screams. You snap your head around to watch as she pushes Joseph away and runs to the corner of the room.“I was just trying to be nice!” he shouts as he stands up, unintentionally looming over her.Actions?
>>28677920Not our bitch, not our problem. Tell Huey he's a dick, ask him how we're going to get our targets, and ask him where we are.
>>28677920Approach Joseph and yank him away. "Think dude, a girl has that kind of appearance and you act like that?"
“Huey, you are a dick. Now are you going to give our targets, and where the fuck am I?”“Are you seriously insulting the guy that can blow you in half? -_-I like you. Target is this guy. Barry Bob! 1 StarPros : Registered Address, Big fucking head, hard to miss, kind of retarded.Cons : Dogs, nosy neighbors, He’s still smarter than you lot”“Just one star? What the fuck Huey? I could do this myself,” Joseph’s brother says as he walks up to you. Out of the corner of your eye you see the first girl run over to the half-naked one and start comforting her.“Jesus Ricky, haven’t you heard of a tutorial? Now are you ready for the armory or not? You have one hour, and the door will lead you to an abandoned house a few doors down,” Huey says as a door to your right opens up, revealing a room filled with racks of weapons.Ricky shakes his head. “Joseph, me and you, let’s go. Everyone else, stay the fuck out of our way,” he announces as he walks into the armory.Actions? Response?
>>28678114"Let's just get this over with." Grab a gun. Pure and simple.
>>28678593In the armory is a long collection of firearms you haven't seen before, but they seem to have the same general build.>Pistol>A larger pistol>Rifle>Shotgun>A longer rifleThere is also a collection of body armors>Steel>SyntheticBody armor covers your torso, and each of your limbs independently.There are also thirteen smartphones on a table.In the back corner you find that there is a locked cabinet marked FOOF, but there is no apparent way to open it.Joseph and Richard have both loaded up with shotguns and the larger pistol. Hank forced his way in, grabbing a rifle, and the kid in the hoodie is eyeing up the pistols.What do you choose as your loadout?
>Shotgun>Small PistolBest bet for the untrained. Besides this job is dogs. A close range weapon is a good idea. However having a backup weapon is a good thing.>SyntheticEh I have no idea the pros and cons of either but going around carted out like a 1700s footsoldier is a bad idea.Grab a smartphone. Sure its probably bugged but so is our chestbomb.
You grab the synthetic armor and pick it off the rack. Holding it up to the light you can see thousands of strands running through. Stretching it proves it to be rather pliable, but the color quickly changes to a myriad of yellows and reds crisscrossing the fabric. You start stripping out of your clothes to put it on under as Joseph and Ricky open the door out of the door out of the armory, there is a large blast of light for a moment, but that quickly fades.“No one’s getting in a fight without me!” Bruce shouts as he barges into the armory, nearly knocking you over. He grabs one of the pistols off the rack and rushes to follow the group.“I told you people to stay behind. You’ll only get in our way!” Ricky barks back at him. All of them have already left the armory by the time you get into the armor. You snatch up a shotgun and one of the smaller pistols. You can’t find any spare ammunition though.>Head out with the group>Check on the two girls who stayed behind, ask Huey something?>Other
>>28678867bah, forgot my trip
>>28678867are you even the GM? I dont feel comfortable with you.
>>28678890yes, sorryI made one post outside of here all day, and it lead to me forgetting my trip.
>>28678867Follow group behind, learn from the incest brothers how it goes.But first ask huey what happens if you accidently kill another "player".
>Check on the two girls who stayed behind, ask Huey something?Honestly I don't like this group. They are rushing into things and are most likely going to get themselves killed. We can team build a little so we can actually survive this while its still easy.
>>28678867Ask huey all kinds of shit>what happens if we kill other players>what happens if we don't kill the people you tell us to>if we kill 42 people, do you remove the bomb and we go free?>what if we just let other players get all the kills for us>Are these targets really super strong aliens that will brutally murder lots of us or what?
I had better explain this while I canThe basics of combat, that even a rookie like you knowsSuccess is determined by opposed 2d6+modifier. Roll as many times as you like, I will randomly choose one of them with a dice roll.Location damage is a thingAs a weak human, you have no modifiers at the moment.
>>28678651>>28678867"Doesn't this all seem simultaneously excessive and inadequate? I mean, this synthetic armor's nifty- non-Newtonian fluids I'd guess?- but, uh, is arming random cloned saps with killplugs and small arms really the most efficient way to go about coldblooded murder? Seems asinine. Unreliable. And exposed in its ridiculous unsubtlety, for that matter."
>>28678958has a point. Those chucklefucks are going to learn the term friendly fire with the way they are acting and I have no desire to be the chump who gets shot.So we gotta ask for a different target.
Rather than follow the group, you double back to the first room. The two girls are huddled up in the corner together. “Hey, are you two alright? Is she alright?” you ask carefully. The half-naked girl has her face buried in her hands. The first one, who’s name you never got, pulls away from her to walk over to you.She leans over to you to whisper in your ear. “She was raped, I’m going to get her home, call the police or something.”“I don’t think calling the police is a good idea, what with the bombs,” you whisper back.“Then what the hell are we supposed to do?”“Let me talk to Huey, we’ll figure this out,” you respond before walking over to the computer screen. “I have some questions.”“Sure, I don’t mind answering them, but you only have like 54 minutes left you know,” Huey says.“I want to know some of the rules. What happens if we kill other players? If we don’t kill your targets? If we refuse? If we kill forty-two people the bomb is gone and we get to leave? What if I let the others do all the work?”“Fuck, hold on. That’s a lot of fucking questions. Let’s see, I don’t actually enforce any rules on inter party conflict, that usually resolves itself what with the vote. If you don’t kill the targets, you’ll just have to try again another time, but if you refuse I’ll kill you and get more people. You’re disposable. And I don’t really have a problem with you sitting back if you want to. If you make a habit of it though, I may have to put you on your own kill clock.”“So the reason you’re using us instead of professionals is because we’re expendable?”“Bingo.”The two girls are about to leave, any last questions? Who do you join?
>>28679108Get the girls to stop leaving for now. Tell them if they run they die. Then get a different target from Huey. If they are willing kit them up. Giving the girl a weapon to defend herself with and showing her she does have power will help since I doubt there are any counselers amongst us.
>>28679108Join the australian man, he seems crickey and noice. The girl doesnt need a man after she got raped, so just stick with him for some time.
>>28679108"Who's on the list, anyways? Bankers? Politicians? Criminal ring leaders? Because I'm not interested in offing the innocent, just det the killplug and be done with it if that's the case. I already know there's something on the other side, so this whole clone not-superassassin schtick is just something to hold my curiosity."
Rolled 5, 6, 6, 3 + 4 = 24Alright, if you're going to keep talking, then I need to make some rollsJ, B
“Hey, hey, both of you hold up. We’re playing by Huey’s rule’s right now and the safest way for you two is to just wait it out in here. Let the others handle this, unless you want to… you know,” you say, nudging your head to the gore filling the room.They slow to a stop. “I guess we’ll wait in here then, I don’t want to see that corpse any more. You’re going to go kill the man then?”You nod. “Maybe, I’m playing it by ear.”“Alright then, my name is Bridgette by the way.”“Alice,” you respond with a casual smile, before turning back to Huey. “Huey, can you give me a different target or something? And who are these people anyways?”“I give you the targets as I find them. They’re just scum though, don’t worry about it. Next target will be in like a week or so, maybe less. I might flush a few out of hiding with this.”“I’m not going to just kill innocent people for this, I’ve been to the otherside, this is just entertainment now.”“Oh? You think you’ve been to the other side? >_>WwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwFuck off you dumbass. I should blow you up right now if you think that being dead is better than being alive. What you saw was the inside of the soul net, nothing more. A product of technology. Go kill yourself I you don’t believe me, now go murder Barry before I blow all three of you to smithereens and annihilate your souls.”Response?
>>28679480We go murder Barry before he blows all three of us to smithereens and annihilates our souls.
>>28679480Oh, great. Grand. He's using the Jap laugh. Christ almighty. Shrug and set out. What's our loadout, pistol & shotgun? Make sure to grab the lower-caliber one in the former case, and in the latter go for an assortment of shells. Slugs primarily.

You grit your teeth and bow out. You adjust your shirt a bit to cover more of the strange armor as you walk through the armory. Bridgette and the other girl are sitting against a rack, you notice that she grabbed one of the larger pistols. You make eye contact with her for a moment as you pass, exchanging a grimace and a nod.You walk outside and look around for a moment. You don’t quite recognize where you are, but it’s the middle of the night. To make things worse, there are no lights anywhere, save for the moon. The area is residential, and you can hear people shouting at each other, but there is no power anywhere. “What an unlikable bastard!” you hear Bruce shout. Off to the side you see that a wooden fence had been smashed apart. A moment later Bruce walks through the gap, brushing massive splinters of wood off of himself.Before you can properly greet each other, the rumble of dozens and dozens of small explosions rips through the dark street. A few houses down, in the blaze of fire, you see your four comrades unloading their guns on a house, with no discrimination.>Stay with Bruce>Join them>Say something>Write inGood Write ins can earn you Ingenuity.

They’ve nearly destroyed his entire building,” Bruce responds as you walk up next to him. You can hear Ricky barking orders to spread out and confirm the kill.Without approaching, you uncomfortably check that your weapons are loaded and watch. There is a pause, a moment where it seems nothing will happen, then you hear a clicking screech. Something blurs through the air, too fast for you to see, but you see the effect. Joseph, Hank, and the kid all go down screaming, writing in pain. You can smell burnt flesh all the way from over here.“Chemical weapons! Get back!” Ricky shouts as he tries to pull Joseph to his feet, but the other two are completely immobilized.>Counterattack>Flee>Defer to Bruce>Write In

“We have to help, this isn’t some innocent, come on!” you shout as you run down the sidewalk. The creatures haven’t seen you yet, allowing you to get behind a rusting out car, the only cover nearby. There are four of the creatures, hulking dog like creatures with their skin peeled off and long tails flicking around through the air. You can see large bloated sacs in their necks.They stop to sniff at the kid and Hank, who are still screaming in pain as their flesh sloughs off their bones, boiling against the concrete and fouling the air. Bruce appears right beside you, catching the eye of Ricky. He waits just a moment, for you to attack and catch their attentions before attacking with you. You wildly fire the shotgun at them, and as luck would have it you strike one in the front shoulder, the explosion from the round ripping its entire limb off. The creatures jumps away, but Ricky manages to blast off the back leg of another.The same clicking screech is coming from insideDefend yourself

Rolled 4, 6 = 10>>28680761
Rolled 2, 6 = 8>>28680767The 6,6 = 12 here>>28680733 is a crit, right? Voting to burn an ingenuity for that.
Rolled 3Are you going to burn an ingenuity? Or take this one?
>>28680699well not sure how dificult it is to get more. but ya burn it i guess
Rolled 5>>28680836well that's a thing
Rolled 4, 5 = 9>>28680891cant tell if good or bad...
You get a glimpse of the hound you shot thrashing about, spilling blood from its neck before the other three attack. Two of them face you and Bruce and belch streams of acid at you, but you manage to drag him behind the car with yourself, and the compound splashes against the vehicle rather than across yourself. You can hear the paint on the car burning off, and the tires pop and deflate, collapsing the vehicle to the ground.However they’re attacking you seems to have lulls between when they’re able to fire. When you peek your head above the cover again, you find yourself staring into the maw of the demonic hound.>Counterattack?>Write InYou critted your defense, and the body part that would have been hit, since it critted its attack, was in cover, that was a good roll.
Rolled 5, 4 = 9>>28680982fucking point blank shotgun take its head off whilst terrified
Rolled 1, 5 = 6>>28680982>>28681018yup
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>28681036also if safely possible take a look and see whats become of rick and jeff. got know if that acid shit spreads.
Rolled 4, 6, 1, 5, 5, 3 = 24Your team all get shots off, so let's see how they do+2 +6 +1
Rolled 6, 6, 6, 5, 2, 5, 6, 1 = 37>>28681114>12>12>9not bad, they get to defend now+4 +4 +2 +2
Rolled 3>>28681018>>28681036>>28681080Will you burn ingenuity or take this roll?
>>28681166hmm i think it would be better to save them for defense purposes. so i think we should just take the roll. jeez how hard could it be to hit at point blank. feel free to out vote me if you guys think we should use it.
>>28681080Seconding. If we sever the dog's head then we (or Joseph or whoever is strongest) should shield their hand and toss its head towards the building.Then someone else should shoot its neck sacks to mist the acid onto whoever's in there.
>>28681240I agree. but if we don't lose limbs how we will get bionic ones?
>>28681295well bionic means we have to have batterys or some shit and dont know if those exsist(also love gantz)
You pull your shotgun around as it snarls and lunges at you. Its maw clamps down around the barrel as you fire. Its eyes grow wide as it feels the slug rip down its throat. A moment later, the slug detonates inside its throat, ripping its neck open, and Bruce puts the coup de grace on it. Acid splatters out from the explosion, spraying across you.You shout and stumble back as your clothes burn off, revealing the synthetic armor beneath, but luckily you watch as the fluid threads inside burst and swell and neutralize the acid. You can’t help but laugh that you’re alive from that, and one of the beasts is dead.Looking beyond the carcass, you see as Joseph and Ricky force the three remaining beasts back. But then Ricky dashes forward, discarding his shotgun. He snatches up Hank’s rifle as he pulls out his pistol and swings it between them.The three hounds are on the defensive now, backing away.Counterattack?Write in?You’ll need a less destroyed head to use as an acid bomb
Also, because of their crit, and your plan, you are currently at 6 ingenuity
>>28681320stay in cover and see if you can safely shoot at some of the dog monster things. also if we get the chance check the skys something did fly over early if im not mistaken.
>>28681375also tell ricky and joseph to get back behind the car with you and bruce. joseph is a colleage student hopefully that means hes smart enough to know he needs cover
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28681375Sounds good. Switch to the pistol and aim for the acid sacs if possible.
Rolled 6, 4, 5, 4, 6, 4 = 29Their defense+4 +4 +2Don't forget that you can roll more than once
Rolled 1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3 = 15>>28681511>14>13>14Your team offense+1 +6 +1
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>28681511hmm good to know but would feel cheap if we just spamed BS msges to get better rolls
>>28681533that's how you make use of ingenuity. You could strartergize with one another you knowgot to do something to combat the power of the rng
Rolled 5, 2 = 7>>28681581ya but also still not exactly sure how easy or hard it is to get them and wanna make sure we have them when we realy need them. also werent the two brothers being melted?
Rolled 2, 3 = 5>>28681533This quest actually seems high-lethality enough that i don't feel so bad about it.
>>28681624that was Hank and the kidIt will get harder to get Ingenuity as things go on, but you need to survive till thenAlso, he gets ingenuity when you crit
Rolled 3, 2 = 5>>28681627true but that fact dosent make the discishion to use or save ingenuity any easyer. i say we do things cautiusly and keep us alive with good discishions.>>28681670discishions are dificult i just think its good to use them defensivly
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>28681529Wow, those are terrible attack rolls for the team. Can Bruce and us flank the dogs at all? Maybe get behind a different car before the acid eats through to spill the flammable fluids in this one.
Rolled 2>>28681436>>28681533>>28681624>>28681627>>28681694>>28681695Will you burn Ingenuity or take this roll?
Rolled 2, 2 = 4>>28681695wait a sec i dont think acid can ignite gas. maby we can luer them near the car and use it to blow them to the sky.>>28681716fak it use it
Cars exploding from bullets is pure hollywood.
Rolled 3, 1 = 4>>28681695Also we need to check out our smartphone when we get the chance. We might get those chicks down here, backup is sorely needed.
>>28681739ingenuity doesn't give you a crit, it lets you chose the roll you want from the pool. I already randomly chose your best roll, there is no point in burning ingenuity >>28681766Cars exploding from explosive flechetter rounds on the other hand
Rolled 4, 4 = 8>>28681739>>28681766I know it won't ignite it (although we don't know what's used for fuel here) but it does mean we'd be standing on an oil slick with unknown adversaries with unknown weapons nearby.
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>28681819true. >>28681795also did we get a chance to look at the sky for that thing that flew away?
>>28681852what you're remember was the blur of the acid squirt
Rolled 3, 3 = 6>>28681860ahh i just read that something whizzed above us. ok my bad then.
“Try to get to some cover!” you shout as you fire more slugs at the beasts, but at the increased ragne you are unable to hit anything. Bruce is standing next to you, mostly exposed, and laughing as it he takes shots at the creatures. Joseph only had time to take one shot before starting to crawl away, his entire left body destroyed.Then you see why the one set of pistols was larger than the other. They’re machine pistols, fully automated, and each round is explosive. Ricky sends a sweep of explosive fire around at the beasts, forcing them to jump back, closer to the home, but not actually injuring any of them. Then, discarding the pistol, he turns and sprints back towards the armory.Then you notice the people. There are dozens of faces crammed in windows, peering out at you, watching.“They’re attacking again lad, get your head in the game!” Bruce shouts as he grabs your head and pushes you to the ground.Defense please.
Rolled 4, 5 = 9>>28681898well rolling. and could we make out anything about the faces?
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>28681898
Rolled 2, 4 = 6>>28681898Rolling for defense.If it's advantageous, we and Bruce should pull back and set the car off so we can reload at the armory.

Rolled 5, 5 = 10>>28682041Well yeah but we're not doing so hot out here. Regrouping and coming up with a better plan than "Hey let's us three head in to kill these guys the AI summoned 13 people for and then die like bitches"On the other hand, the target might get away.
Rolled 2, 2 = 4>>28682088PROTECT US AWSOME ACID RESISTANT BODY ARMOR
Rolled 2, 5 = 7>>28682119second this i dont think these things would run away tho
You hear each of the hounds gag and belch acid out into the air. Joseph screams and roars in pain for a moment before blood chokes his throat. Ricky shouts in pain as acid severs through his right leg. And the last bolt of acid splashes over the car, catching both you and Bruce in the arm. You remain protected by your armor, but blood begins spraying across you as Bruce growls in pain. Looking over your shoulder, you see that all of the muscle on his upper arm has been destroyed.“Dirty rats!” he roars as he pushes back up. Three explosions rip through the concrete and the hounds howl. The bombs in the chests of Joseph, Hank, and the kid all detonated. Gunshots start blasting out of windows as well, but where they are firing you are unsure.Counterattack?Write in?

Rolled 3, 3 = 6>>28682237I am really, really, really glad I chose synthetic armor for this. Alright I think we should counter attack. Lets use the fact that the dogs just blew their wads to get in close and take them out with the shotgun.
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>28682298better than none
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>28682337seconded and if one of the bombs hit then maby theres only one left.

Rolled 4>>28682337>>28682343>>28682357>>28682397Will you burn ingenuity, or take this roll?
>>28682430>Take the roll.
Rolled 3, 2 = 5>>28682430Burn ingenuity. Let's make this count.
Rolled 5, 6 = 11>>28682430well seeing as its the best roll we could have goten... take
I say burn it.
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28682492>>28682450Thirding the burn. They're disoriented and we need to use that.
(Gotta say I like this dice system.)
>>28682510>>28682492>>28682450Okay... You burn ingenuity to get an 11it is now 11 v 7 instead of 7 v 7, ties go to the attacker.You are at 5 ingenuity
“Take them out now!” you shout as you jump up. Bruce is already firing on the beasts and has ripped open the middle hounds guts. Acidic entrails are dripping out onto the concrete as it howls in pain. Your shot rips open the lungs of the injured hound, dropping it to the ground. Out of the corner of your eye, you see Ricky twist around and shoulder the rifle and blast off the front leg of the last remaining hound.Acid is spilling out of them and they are staggering from side to side, or collapsed. But they aren’t dead yet.Coup de Grace?>>28682539good to hear
Rolled 2, 3 = 5>>28682561why not finish them
>>28682561Switch to the pistol. Execution time.
>>28682561Can we do it without getting close to the acid-spewing monstrosity?
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28682561Coup de Grace, but carefully (try to keep a head intact). We'll grab it with our synthetic armor (...hopefully that's the last of the dogs.)
>>28682610You have guns. Of course you can

victory song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V7aUT13qtM
Rolled 2, 2 = 4>>28682726We haven't won yet, we've only dispatched the target's dogs.
You pass your shotgun over to your offhand and walk around the car as you pull out the pistol. “Now this is just cruel,” Bruce comments as you start shooting the beasts. None of them can stay on their feet, and when one does manage to lunge up, Ricky shoots its head off.“You’re one to talk, you’re missing an arm,” you comment as you put the last round in, severing a head off. “And they killed three people, they’re monsters.”“I’m going to need some kind of treatment for this. The shock is starting to wear off,” he grumbles as he slides down against the car, holding his arm and trying to not look at the exposed bone where the flesh is still rotting away. “But that is some fancy armor you’ve got there.”“It was available in the armory, you should have gotten some,” you say as you walk over to the beasts head and pick it up by the mutilated ear. The thing is massive, far larger than your own head with fangs to match, but it’s certainly dead. The acid glands are still mostly intact in its neck, so you toss it as hard as you can into the middle of the house. “Watch my back!” you shout before taking a few shots from a distance and destroying the head, misting the acid through the air.At last, Barry reveals himself. If he was ever human, it’s hard to tell now. The acid is melting away his skin, and his spread of muscles along is frame is hulking and disgusting. And he’s glaring you down.Initiative roll, then plan please.
Rolled 5, 4 + 8 = 17His initiative
Rolled 3, 5 = 8>>28682867Hmm, can we get a description of the area? We only really know that we're in a street behind a (slowly melting) car that's all in front of house with a melted front wall.
Rolled 1, 1 = 2>>28682887hmm he seems mad at us now.
Rolled 5, 1 = 6>>28682867Hmm...run?Actually, are the pistol's round explosive too?
Rolled 4, 5 = 9>>28682867Plink at him with the pistol, dodge if/when he rushes at us and then follow up with shotgun?
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>28682959id like to avoid killing him if he is about to attack us. get to cover and try talking him down if he is infact trying to kill us
Rolled 1, 3 + 6 = 10Ricky's shot>>28682904You are int he middle of a ghetoo neighborhood in the middle of the night. Around you are several small, one story houses, rusting cars, scattered lawn furniture, and a few large trees sending cracks through the dis-repaired blacktop. The houses around you are about a thousand square feet, if that, with large yards aroudn them, and the house he was in has been completely destroyed. Looking beyond him you can see through the alleys that you seem to be near a major road. Despite a large and noisy fight that has lasted about five to ten minutes now, you do not hear any police sirens.Any other questions>>28682959yes
Rolled 2, 3 + 2 = 7>>28682988his dodge
Rolled 4, 4 = 8>>28682986I'm pretty sure he's about to attack us. He's an inhuman muscle-bound thing (that doesn't care too much about having just been sprayed with acid) that had 5 acid-spewing monster dogs living with him.Doesn't seem like the talkative type. Also, if we don't kill him we die.
>>28682986Doesn't matter if he's not trying to kill us, it's our job to kill him.
Rolled 5, 5 + 2 = 12>>28682904>>28682922>>28682959>>28682977>>28682986>>28683023I'll need you to roll to dodge now
Rolled 4, 5 = 9rolling. I agree, gain some distance. Try to aim for vitals like the eyes, groin and throat. Don't bother with the body with the pistol since he seems armored.
Rolled 5, 1 = 6>>28683054Rolling for dodge.Try to put some distance between us and him, get behind a tree that's located appropriately for Ricky+Bruce to have good angles for shots on him.
Rolled 1, 4 = 5>>28683054oshit.jpg
>>28683056Previous description makes out like he's just made of muscle, not actual armor. Pistol should still do some damage
Rolled 2, 1 = 3>>28683023my bad im retarded i skimmed and ready barry as bruce.
Rolled 5, 4 = 9>>28683099It's still good advice to aim for the eyes or groin, if he's so musclebound as to not be recognizable as human he's likely got other things going for him.>>28683054Dodge.
Rolled 1, 3 = 4giving one final roll, hoping for double 6s since thats the only thing that will work.
Rolled 1, 5 = 6>>28683124this
Rolled 4, 2 = 6>>28683054Needs a good roll (and probably Ingenuity).
Rolled 4>>28683124I'll remind you that you don't have enough training to make those kinds of shots, or to avoid his attack apparently
Rolled 2, 1 = 3>>28683054Well hoping for double-6s.>>28683139Okay...well use the shotgun for an
Rolled 4, 6 = 10>>28683139welp if we survive itll be cardio and target practice for us
Rolled 2, 6 = 8>>28683139Here's hoping our armor does more than just be acid resistant. We should probably ask Huey about that at some point.
Rolled 6, 3 = 9>>28683194assuming hes not geting a sick kick out of our pain. and would help us
Rolled 4, 4 = 8>>28683194Indeed. Hopefully it won't piss him off and make him explode us.
You stares down at you, and huffs. Just before he lunges forward at you, you hear the report from Ricky’s rifle. A small amount of blood squirts out of his neck before the shot erupts out. Blood starts dripping from his neck from the small wound. He takes a moment to scratch at the wound before looking back at you.You stumble over yourself as you try to turn and flee but he quickly catches up with you and scoops up your leg. He picks you up by your leg like a stick and rips you into the air and smashes you onto the hood of the car you had been next to. You hear your thigh crack and your leg bend in a way you just know it was never meant to bend. It howls into the night as you scream.“Eat this you fat fuck,” Bruce says as he pushes the pistol into his gut, catching his attention.Do you have a plan now that you’re crippled?
>>28683217>>28683219He found it amusing enough to answer a few of our questions earlier, so I think he might be reasonable enough to answer something that will help us do our (unwilling) job
Rolled 2, 1 = 3>>28683255well were not running so... UNLOAD EVERYTHING ON HIM
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>28683262Indeed. Anyone get the sense that Joseph was not always so musclebound?>>28683255After Bruce fires his pistol into its gut shoot its face (which should be near us because he/it should double over from impact if nothing else) with the shotgun.
Rolled 5, 3 = 8>>28683255Put as many shotgun rounds as we can through him.
>>28683255Dual wield shotgun and pistol.Shotgun in offhand and pistol in main.We only need one shot anyway.
>>28683314OP has implied that we can get improvements, presumably from Huey, so maybe Joseph chose muscles as one of his
Rolled 2, 2 = 4>>28683380Too bad he was cocky.
Rolled 3>>28683289>>28683314>>28683327Will you burn ingenuity or take this roll?I'll roll his dodge in a moment
Rolled 1, 2 = 3>>28683459Absolutely. Can't take another hit like that.
Rolled 4, 2 = 6>>28683459i vote yes
Rolled 4, 5, 3, 2 = 14>>28683459+2 for his dodge, then +1 for Bruce's shot

>>28683459Burn it. Can't do much if he kills Bruce and we've got a broken leg.
ingenuity burned, 5 remains, writing
Barry Bob twists out of the way, knocking the pistol to the shot and sending Bruce’s shot wide, but forcing him to let go of you. You let the adrenaline take hold as you roll off the car to grab your shotgun again, turn and blast him in the chest nearly point blank. The shot puts a cavity in his chest and staggers him long enough for Ricky to shoot him in the shoulder.But he doesn’t go down. He starts sniffing the air, turning between the three of you, uncertain. Then a fourth gunshot blares down the street and an explosion hits a house a hundred meters away. Seems that someone took a shot and missed.“Enough of this gun nonsense,” Bruce says as he drops his pistol to the ground and beckons Barry forward.Response?
Rolled 2, 5 = 7>>28683599Burst out laughing. Then take advantage of our momentary shock/adrenaline to blast Barry Bob right before he engages Bruce.
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>28683599Shoot him again.
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28683599call him a fucking idiot and start unloading at the monster

Rolled 3, 2 = 5>>28683662>>28683652>>28683650none of these are enough, so I'm writing
Rolled 4, 2, 4, 5, 3, 2, 3, 3 = 26Alright, well, they're in a grapple now, let's see what happensthat's Barry, Bruce, Barry, Bruce
Rolled 3, 5 = 8>>28683809They don't call him Bruce Mann for nothing
Rolled 1, 4 = 5>>28683809well hopefully hes wrasled spiders tuffer than this guy in Australia
Rolled 3, 5, 5, 3, 3, 6, 6, 1 = 32>>28683835and on it goes, he's now burning ingenuity, but Bruce snapped his arm Barry Barry Barry Bruce
>>28683853And then I am immediately forced to eat my words.
>>28683853god damn i never wanna go to Australia
Rolled 3, 3, 1, 6, 4, 2, 4, 5 = 28You can’t help but laugh before shooting again, but you’re in so much shock that you can no longer aim straight. Ricky buries another round in the same shoulder, but doesn’t manage to stop him before Bruce lunges forward. You hadn’t noticed, but apparently Bruce had pulled a knife. With a gleeful laugh he stabbed it into the beasts arm, knocking the both of them to the ground in a grapple.The two of them tumble, rolling over one another in a spray of blood, until Bruce gets on top with a handful of his arm and snaps it back, shattering the shoulder joint. In a burst of strength, Barry flips him around again, only to get stabbed in the leg. But the advantage is short lived, and Bruce is soon tossed aside. Bruce laughs. “You ain’t got shit on me.”Barry is open, do you take the shot or let Bruce reengage?
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>28683853Rolling to save Bruce.
Rolled 4, 4 = 8>>28683894Let's take the shot, why not? Aim for the shoulder that Bruce didn't break if possible.
>>28683894cant we take a shoot and then let bruce reengage? if so i vote we yell GET HIM YOU CRAZY AUSTRALIAN BASTARD!!! after we take the shot
Rolled 1, 6 = 7>>28683894Shoot him.
Rolled 3, 6 + 2 = 11He get's to dodge then
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28683925Sounds good to me.
Rolled 1, 6, 4, 4, 5 = 20>>28683896>>28683924>>28683928I assume you'll burn ingenuity?first one is which roll is chosen (divide by two), then +6, then +0
Rolled 5, 3 = 8>>28683958well alright then
>>28683958yup i want this ass hole dead
Rolled 6, 3 + 2 = 11Bruce's attack, can't believe I forgot this one

Rolled 6, 4 = 10>>28684072>>28684094>>28684003Barry Bob is going down.
“Get him you crazy Aussie bastard!” you shout as you shoot the beast man’s leg, sending him down to his knee. Ricky gets another shot in on his back, just before Bruce tackles him back to the ground. Even when you had one more arm than I did you couldn’t stand a chance, now that I’ve broken that one, what chance do you think you have?” he shouts as he raises the knife in the air over and over, stabbing the creature’s chest. Tears of relief are falling down your face by the time he plants the knife through Barry’s eye, finally killing him in the blood soaked rampage.Bruce throws his arms in the air and whoops.You see a few cars roll up down the road from you, their headlights the only artificial light you’ve seen all night.Then your shotgun explodes, ripping your arm off. Your pistol is next, then all the guns of your fallen comrades.Then your chest.The moon rolls past you as your head soars through the air.
Rolled 6, 6 = 12>>28684155wat. well shit. heres to hopeing its huey reviveing us again so were all healed up i guess
>>28684223dat max roll doe
>>28684223Max roll, gotta happen.
You come pushing out of the membrane, moaning and screaming, the pain of death still fresh in your memory. You drop into the room in the remains of your tattered pants, no synthetic armor, once again covered in muck. Bridgette and the other girl are standing in the doorway to the armory, Ricky is already in the room. “Bring him back!” he roars as he run over to the computer monitor. “Bring him back bring him back bring him back!”“Chill the fuck out Richard, he’ll probably win the vote, jesus. -_-‘ Let everyone get out of the vat first,” Huey says as Ricky drops to his knees. “Now where the hell is that crazy bastard?”“Why am I alive?” you ask as you crawl to your feet, checking yoru chest to find a fresh explosive charge.“Because it’s super easy to bring you back to life if I know when you die and where. It’s just cleaner and harder for me to get caught. You’ll get used to it, or not. I don’t really care,” Huey explains. “You should be thanking me, you no longer have a broken leg.” You look down to confirm, your body seems to be in perfect health. “Ah, there he is.” You turn and see Bruce fighting out of the membrane, throwing punches and swearing.“What the in hell was that?” he demands when he finally rips out.“Alright! Time for the appraisals!
Joseph JoestarPros : didn’t job too hardCons : jobbed pretty hard, cocky, muscles are too big, can’t keep it in his pants, socially awkwardDick Van DykePros : kept it together, survived, good shotCons : He’s the one who suggested frontal assault, his glasses are a pain to make, farted when no one was listeningHank HillPros : can get you a car I guessCons : Kind of an asshole, and I don’t really like him, jobbed hard.Stone(r)Pros : Got dat dank ass kush, surprisingly good shotCons : He’s like, five years old or something, really fucking young, jobbed hard.Christ IIIPros : Can distract people by preaching religious bullshit, knows every soup kitchen within fifty milesCons : won’t shut up, smellsBridgettePros : took initiative, survivedCons : Hard to come up with a witty name for her, sucked at everythingSarahPros : good looking, survivedCons : kind of fucked in the head, didn’t do shitBruce the DeucePros : Has a great booze hook up, can wrestle a bear to deathCons : gets in fights, can’t into strategy, doesn’t listen to orders, stupid.Alice CooperPros : survived, average dude, has a house you can all crash atCons : sucks at everything apparentlyYou all now owe me 43 lives btw, good job, I only have to bring three new people into this now, so you only netted -2.Now, who do you want me to bring back to life?”
>>28684518>>28684495that was the end of the update, if that wasn't clear
>>28684495shit hard choice. assuming we dont have to bring anyone who survived back obviusly... shit hard choice...
>>28684495can you make the dudes brother come back with a leash and a chastity belt?big muscles=good cannon fodder
>>28684495Damn. Looks like it's a choice between Joseph and the Stone(r).Personally leaning towards the Stoner, but since both he and Joseph got melted by acid hounds, I don't really know.
What is "jobbing" hard?
>>28684679we would have to deal with his brother bitching but then again maby some good weed could block that out. wounder if huey can read alices mind and is just laughing at our thought process
>>28684698Those are the guys who bit the dust fast and hard
>Gantz QuestThis is relevant to my interests.Too bad the ending of Gantz was absolute shit.
>>28684742i heard the manga was much much better from a bunch of people but ya anime was preety bad as far as endings go
>>28684742hello unexplored territory thenThough since OP used [REDACTED] rather than Gantz, he's probably going to mix a whole bunch of shit. I'd expect SCP-682 duking it out with Nyarlethotep if I were you
>>28684763I'm talking about the ending of the manga.
>>28684518Can we ask Huey about the differences between the synthetic and steel armor?
>>28684495as far as this goes i think our best bet is to flip a coin. all in favor say aye
>>28684730allright, I vote for Joe thenBecause I know that spaghetti feel
>>28684852>>28684819Fuck, I mean, yeah. Let's do that.How about Joe's 1 and Stoner's 2?
“Everyone please, please vote to bring my brother back,” Ricky asks as he slumps farther.“The musclehead who threw me right through a fence? Roight, that’ll be the day. If he does come back, I’ll beat his face in. I’d rather bring the lad back, youth ‘n all that,” Bruce says as he walks up beside you.Ricky looks to the two girls, both of whom just shake their heads. “I’m not stepping into this, I didn’t know any of them,” Bridgette says, driving Ricky’s view to you.“Uh, so Huey, about the armory, care to explain the difference between the steel and synthetic armor?”“Way to dodge the question champ. Steel is hard, and makes it painful for people to punch you. The synthetic weave is for neutralizing chemical weapons. I don’t have shit to stop bleeding, I need to get restocked.”The vote is down to you.
>>28684924gahh shit... any one got a quarter?
Rolled 2>>28684924Pull a quarter out of our wallet/whatever, flip it.
>>28684978Looks like stoner.
>>28684978>>28684958no inorganics, remember?I'm fine with the vote to bring the kid back, but you need a different justification
Rolled 2>>28685002well what ever ston(r) it is
>>28685002Youth and shit.
>>28685019>>28685007>>28684978dem oddswriting by the way
Rolled 2bruce diservs to get his choice any way
You sigh and close your eyes so you don’t have to look at any of them. “Let’s bring the kid back, that’s usually what you do in these situations, isn’t it?”“Fuck you you cunt! You’re going to bring back some pot somking dipshit over my brother? Do you have any idea how many times we’ve survived this game and come out on top? We’re better than you!” Ricky roars as he leaps to his feet.You start to stammer a response when Huey starts dinging and confetti dumps out of the ceiling from somewhere. “Stone it is! He’ll be out of the vat in a second. No Brochacho for you Ricky,” Huey announces. You put your hands up in the air as Richard snarls at you. “Now, on to the next order of business, all of you who survived get a prize, except you Sarah, do something next time. Anyways, tell me what you want upgraded about your body and I’ll make it happen. Organics are easy like that. Richard, where are you going?” Huey says as Ricky pushes the two girls aside and storms into the armory.You and Bruce exchange a look and peer in after him. “Fuck all of you!” Joseph roars as he sticks the barrel of a machine pistol into the room, tears running down his face. Quicker than you can react however, his chest explodes. The girls scream as you stare in disbelief.Response?
>>28685141"huey it would be hilarious if you brought him back again." but no not really. probably something along the lines of holy fuck. i thought he would think about it but to actually go thrugh with killing him self.
>>28685141How many times has he and his brother been through the wash?
>>28685184Huey killed him
>>28685141Huh. I guess we couldn't have picked his brother the next time we get to pick someone to revive.Better hand/eye coordination for shooting?
>>28685194well still seemed seconds away from doing it him self but now that you pointed that out i think it would be more like HUEY WTF
Did this thread just hit autosage?
>>28685202cant really think of anything better than that at the moment sens it does seem like were shooting and missing alot. tougher to kill...>>28685233i belive so we hit 300 posts
>>28685233Yep. We have time, though.
>>28685254ya unless he planned to go on like all night. and if so its as easy as just makeing another thread
>>28685218Why would we be like that? Guy was about to blow us all to hell. Something that would make us tougher to kill would be nice, but Huey seems like a dick and would take something as broad as "harder to kill" and make it hilariousArmored skin? Denser bones? Regeneration?
>>28685293phrase it as fast regeneration he might just change nothing and say we do that already
“What the fuck was that? What the fuck Huey?” You shout, still staring at Richard’s corpse.“You do not fuck with the rules. Now someone is going to have to clean that up, because I don’t want ants in here,” Huey responds as Bridgette and Sarah flee to the opposite corner.“I hope you’re not expecting us to do that,” Bruce declares as he walks up to the monitor.“You people usually do. I may not want ants, but you don’t want to be stuck in here with rotting corpses. Although it was actually him that usually did the cleaning. Maybe if I brought him back on the condition that he cleans up, then send him on a fake mission and blow his ass in the ocean? That could work.”“You are one fucked up person,” Bridgette comments.“Who said I was a person???? Now are you going to request your upgrades or not?”“We’re not changing our bodies, we’re leaving,” Bridgette declares as she grabs Sarah’s hand and pulls her toward the armory.“Gimme some tougher skins on my arms. It’s rough having an arm burnt off like that. Being stab proof would make fighting quite a bit easier,” Bruce announces.“Sure, that’s easy enough with some protein weave. Alice?”Have you made a decision? Is there something else you wish to do?
>>28685397first ask him if hes gona play any games with it and pull some genie bull shit with it.
>>28685397I vote for steady shooting. We're killing machines, and we're going to die anyways.
>>28685397regeneration would be nice, assuming he doesn't pull some bullshit
>>28685397I guess better hand-eye for shooting, since our better gunner just blew up. We can get some better survivability stuff next time.Are we allowed to take a gun and armor home with us?
>>28685497>>28685493>>28685463>>28685462no one cares about waifus leaving?
>>28685543probably should tell them he most likely will blow them up if they try to leave
>>28685543We can pick up chicks when we have something that will help us not get murdered horribly next time.
1 > Steady Nerves : Increases Accuracy2 > Fast Regen : Resting out of combat will restore a limited amount of durability and blood3 > Strength Up4 > Speed Up5 > Reactions Up
1 > Steady Nerves : Increases Accuracy
>>28685617well im gonna assume those poped up on the screen so steady nerves it is
>>286856171 > Steady Nerves
>>28685543Sure, lets try to get them to stay.
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>28685617Reactions Up(alternately, upgraded long bones for increased marrow production and strength so we have better cardio and are tougher.)
Rolled 3, 5 = 8>>28685653>>28685635>>28685666The way I see it, if we get a decent non-shotgun weapon we can hit things at decent ranges decently (we won't be able to target specific body parts though), but we still can dodge the large abhuman charging at us to break our femur.
>>28685690but we all know that the secret Katana is the best weapon, we should spec directly into that
>>28685690seems like its mostly dicided to go with acuracy up
>>28685690That's a good point, and survivability is pretty damn important...I don't suppose I could change my vote for reactions?
Rolled 3, 1 = 4>>28685690still can't*>>28685703I forgot about that.
Steady Nerves has been locked in, assuming you survive the next mission, you'll get another upgrade
“Give me something to steady my nerves, I need to be a better shot if I’m going to keep this up,” you answer, glancing over your shoulder to see Stone finally breaking out of the membrane and returning to the living.“A fine pair we’ll make then, if you get to all the suppressing fire and I take down the big ones, eh?” Bruce says, slapping you on the back with enough force to make you stumble forward.“Oh, speaking of which. Ozzy Osborne, you took out the target, you get a second upgrade. Whaddya want?” Huey adds as you hear the two girls struggling with the armory door.“Hey, why don’t you come back here. It’s not ideal, but marching off like that is no good,” you call out to them as Bruce scratches his chin.“Well I did always wonder what it would be like to see in infrared as well,” Bruce offers.“Ah, ye olde heat vision, sure thing, just don’t ask me to upgrade you into Scott Summers,” Huey says. “Alright, since the two women waived their upgrade, get the fuck out of my house, all of you. Now, get. Leave me alone, I don’t want to see your ugly fucking faces anymore,” Huey announces as the Armory door opens finally.Actions?
>>28685808well its been nice being your bitch. and i hope you dont feel the urge to call back anytime soon.
Rolled 6, 2 = 8>>28685808Hey Huey, what's the number to the locked locker?
>>28685855 >>28685845 if he dosent want to tell us and adds an insult
“Hey, Huey, what’s the code to the code to the FOOF locker?” you ask as Bruce grabs Stone by the scruff of his collar and starts dragging him out. When Huey doesn’t respond, you roll your eyes. “Cool. Right, well, it was nice being your bitch and all, I hope you don’t call soon. I’m going home.” You walk out through the armory, considering taking a gun or two to practice with, but your gut feels uneasy about it, so you leave them be.When you get to the door, everyone else has already left, so you follow through. You look around the room you’re in, then look around again. The door should have led back to the slums where you were a moment ago, but this is certainly your living room. You even walk over to the window and see the industrial wasteland surrounding your home. The others are nowhere to be seen you so you wander around back to your kitchen, and find the two girls sitting at your table. You stare at them for a moment before asking, “Is there something I can help you with?”“Sarah just called her uncle, he knows where we are and will be here soon. And as for myself, well, since we’re clones, that means that we’re actually dead right? There’s a corpse that looks just like me out there, and Huey said we could crash at your place…”
I'm going to call it here for tonight because I have some work to do that I've been putting offWhat did you all think?
>>28686027Yeah thats fine.
>>28686046great for me. just need to remember to check out that phone we grabed in the armory next time. really helps fill that void caused by my table top RPG group being busy all the time
>>28686046Any idea when you'll be running next?
>>28686046also perfect timeing fate/stay again just started back upand this>>28686105
>>28686105Tuesday most likelyI have a bunch of work coming upAnything I should work on?
>>28686046I don't know what this quest is based off of and I love it. I have no idea what's happening. Gold star/smiley face
>>28686046It was fun, definitely looking forward to the next run
>>28686146its based off of gantz far as i can tell
>>28686163LA LA LA I DON'T HEAR YOU STOP RUINING THE MAGIC
>Anything I should work on?P-pls repsond
>>28686383I honestly had no idea what was going on then you were rolling the dice.I guess that's something if you want to be picky. I just kind of left it as a hand waiving argument.
>>28686383Going off this one thread it all looked fine to me, the combat system was confusing at until you started explaining what each of the sets of numbers were for. Other than that I had no issues
>tagged with Australians
>>28686383More description of the environment would be good (let's us be more creative/clever as players).Also you might want to explain your dice system at the start of the next thread. It took me more than a minute to get it. (alternately just explain what each roll is for in your first post or 3 with rolls).
Well now I feel like a dumbass because I finished the work I had been putting off, it took me like thirty secondsThat's abstract math for you>>28686736I can do that if I'm not worried about people flaking off which seemed to be a bit of a problem at the start of the threadI actually had a map of the actual place pulled up and was referencing it, so there's that
>>28686772Nigga, give us that map! You holding out on us?!
>>28686851maybe you should check your phone next time
>>28686772It seemed like you were. What you did when we asked about the area was good, maybe give about 1/2 or 1/4 of that up front.
>>28686950I knew we should've checked it out.
