Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou are John James Green. You’re fifteen. Y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-yy-ou’re- “…hydrogen bonding holding along the seventh…” “…know him, reader, this delicate monster…”“…gotta be some kind of attack, right? Like Al Qaeda or something…”“…not just anyone…” “…genome is estimated to be roughly 3.2 billion base pairs long…” “…the leper was removed from the world, and from the community of the Church visible, his existence was yet a constant manifestation of God…”“…go far, boyo…”“…doesn’t make sense anymore, all these gods and monsters…”“…indicate a 15% greater likelihood of schizophrenia manifesting in the mid to late teens…” “…like animals…”“…she’s gone, John.”
You’re with Creeper. He’s meeting a bunch of guys from further up into Queens. You don’t know why – it’s not your business to know. But he’s brought you along, down to the old, industrial-scale boathouse by the docks. You heard it used to belong to Oscorp before they ran into all that trouble with the Green Goblin. Now it’s just a wreck – a huge, damp mess, rusted metal and chipped paint, rattling faintly as the breeze skips by. “…way I see it, you don’t have much choice in the matter…” He’s talking to a man in a dark suit. His face could be any face. They bleed together eventually, him and the others, the significantly less well-groomed men standing just a little behind him. He’s not happy. You half-listen, but it’s not really relevant to you. You asked to come along, but you don’t even know why you’re here. The burnt-out yacht that floats behind them ebbs lazily as the tide breathes in and out. You wonder what happened here, but only briefly. The sound of the water rolls over you, lulling your senses, closing around you. Then, suddenly, something disturbs the steady to and fro. Your eyes follow the sharp metallic sound up to one of the windows on the yacht. The scope gleams like a tiny, prophetic star. You freeze. >[ ] “Shooter!” >[ ] Push Creeper out of the way.>[ ] Throw yourself to the ground.

>[X] Push.No! You throw yourself at Creeper. You don’t remember hitting the ground. You don’t remember letting go. You remember him shouting in surprise, and then the sudden bark of the rifle, ringing out over the water. You remember him swearing loudly and the others drawing their weapons. He grabs you and throws himself behind one of the old, rotting cargo lifts. The sound of gunfire rattles in your ears. The seconds become dull here.

Hmmm, we're at a bit of a stalemate. I'll wait a minute for more votes, then roll for your action.

>>29325279>>29325327They don't seem that useful to me since you have to be visible to use them. We would need SHADOW FIELD first before I would vote for the sound canceling powers. I'm amusing we can use Shadow field and null shadow at the same time.
>[X] Invisible, go after the marksman. You make yourself small. You think about being unseen. You think out vanishing. You let the fear in, let it reach as deep as it will go, let it cloth you, coddle you.You vanish. You run out over the damp metal. You remember the cold breeze and the smell of rust stuffing your nose. The guns chatter in the air, sparking brightly. The yacht shifts almost imperceptibly as you leap aboard. You find the shooter priming for another shot, his eye against the scope. You bull into him, tossing him down across the deck. Your invisibility flickers away and you recall a pure surge of terror striking through you as he glares into your naked face.He grabs your wrist. Time unwinds again here.

>>29325692I assumed the former (because we already have claws in the other direction) but this is an important question to have answered.
>[X] Bite. >[X] Try to push him into the water.Your teeth are in his wrist. The scream shakes your skull and you feel his fist in your ribs, in your ear, across the side of your face, again and again. He’s dropped his gun. You burrow your teeth in deeper and taste blood bursting along your gums, filling your nose with iron. You feel him slacken just a little. Something made you want to push him off, over into the water. Some bull in your head told you that was a good idea. Then you’re sailing through the air with him, his hand still tight around your wrist, and the water suddenly cold and dark around you, and he’s still hitting you. >[ ] Try to get away.>[ ] Try to fight.

>[X] Try to get away.You panic. Your arms flail out, mouth gulping, the taste of blood washing away. He holds tight, pushing you down, dragging you under. He’s going to drown you. You’re going to drown to death. To death. You don’t know what’s under and what’s over the water. You get your hands in his face and push, and rip, and scrabble. You have to push away from him. You have to get away. You can swim away. You’re good at that. You wriggle and writhe and push desperately, and then, there is that terrible thud, that sound that strikes through the water and the fear, and sticks to your skin like glue.It was a great hinge, or a link, or something – the big metal fixture that kept the yacht, or what was left of the yacht, moored. You remember the bloom of red and the sharp horror that struck you when you pushed his head against it, then again, then harder, then more, over and over, the fury in you, the red bounding up and down your arms. Eventually, he grows still, and you watch the water blacken around his head. You pull yourself out, shaking. The blood on your hands is thin, but red.You throw up noisily. >[ ] Look for Creeper.>[ ] Run away.

>>29326169>JJ becomes capable of extending a highly prehensile, chitinous tail.I'd guess it can be retracted to certain degree.

>>29326169Am I the only one that would rather have a non-spine tail. Like night crawler.

>>29326269I think spike tail is cool, especially if it follows the same rules as our claws.
>>29326269Spinal tail is probablu more useful though.
>>29326269I think I might be the only one that doesn't want the tail at all>lvv 3 claws&fangsthat mean sinking 5 x points into it
>>29326269Well, I'd prefer a scale tail with extendable spines to keep with the Lizard+ theme, but that's probably just me. But I don't think we can get a demonic tail before we've bought into the Hell power set.
>>29326200The ice cream with just the lumps of cookie dough? without the chocolate chips? I thought that was just ice cream, didn't know it was a particular brand.
>(1/2)>[X] Look for Creeper.You find Creeper standing over the mangled body of the man in the dark suit. You remember that ruptured, split face, those teeth splayed out across torn, lifeless lips. It was a crowbar, you think. You cry into his shoulder. He doesn’t mind you getting blood on his shirt – it’s just a shirt, he says. He smells of dust and washing powder. He tells you it wasn’t your fault, the guy killed himself really, you don’t have to worry, he was probably a terrible person anyway. You did good. Time skips. You sit with him on the roof of the old junk house, the sun dimming out across the coast. You feel much better. He got you a drink – you remember the stamp, Asahi. It’s bitter. It is the first time you have drunk proper alcohol, and you're not sure you like it very much. You drink it anyway.He pats your shoulder. “You’ll go far, boyo.” His ring finger twitches, as if counting every other second. You point it out and he laughs, he says he hadn’t noticed. Probably nerves. It doesn’t stop, though. And it gets worse, as time goes on.
>>29326346>You cry into his shoulder, he doesn't seem to mind you getting blood onto his shirtCrusty the more you go into JJ and creepers past the more I feel terrible for being a dick to him all the time
>>29326326Are scales not chiton?I don't think it's supposed to be a scorpion tail.
>>29326487>the more I feel terrible for being a dick to him all the timeHe's a horrible person.
>>29326346Oh god. No wonder Creeper took an interest in Laura.>AsahiHe's a weaboo. Probably met Wolverine at a con somewhere.
>>29326541>Asahi>He's a weaboo.It could have just been the cheapest beer there. Or the weakest. Or both.(I wouldn't know, honestly. Just some ideas)
>>29326487He's changed, Anon. He might've been our father figure in the past, but that was a long time ago. I blame the drugs.
>(2/2)Your eyes creak open.You’re John James Green, mutant vagrant. Your head throbs. You remember the crate hurling, the dark rattling around you. The ship. The ship went over, capsized or whatever. You were in one of the crates.You still are. You’re lying in the dark, the metal twisted and shorn about you, night leaking in through the open doors. The walls aren’t ebbing, so you’re on dry land. You shift, your bones growling complaints, and become aware of the soft warmth bundled in your arms. Yes, you went back in for someone. Turns out that someone is kid, maybe nine. You can’t really tell whether it’s a boy or a girl, its features caught in some awkward, weirdling place. Its head is bald and its skin is a light, almost translucent grey. Its fingers dig into your back and its eyes are screwed shut. It’s breathing. Alive.You're both alive.>Action.

Got to… head pounding… got to know where you are. You heave yourself up, very much aware of every bruised muscle, every bleating bone. Must’ve fallen far. The kid holds on to you. You stagger out into the night, shielding your eyes from the sudden glare of fire leaping along the ship. You’re at the docks, where Creeper’s men were originally dragging the crates up from. Various containers and other debris lie strewn along the waterfront, crumpled and broken. You and your crate must’ve slid right off the ship. And, speaking of, the ship sits on its side like a downed giant, lurching over the shore, the pier leading up to it crumpled under its belly. You can see great, horrendous tears strewn across its hull, fire drooling out into the sky like blood from an open wound. Someone really, really wanted this little operation to go sour. In the distance, you hear sirens. You remember the plan. Call home. Check the backup shelters. Laura’s probably called already. >[ ] Go check the backup shelters.>[ ] Get out of the vicinity, watch from nearby.>[ ] Check for survivors.>[ ] Write in.

This would be an excellent time to fake our deaths, wouldn't it?
>>29327175wouldn't really help Kevin and Noriko though
>>29327175Morty got out. He's gonna croak to Creeps. It's also unlikely that was all it took to kill the Cuda.
>>29327187>>29327221Yeah, I thought it would be an easy way to check while not actually taking the time to sift through wreckage and junk.
>>29327084Great idea.But how will we know where Laura is? Or if she's okay. (Waifu accusations aside, she is a valuable ally and we have no clue what happened to her)
>>29327224so he'll probably know about taserhands and a rough idea of super strength he's still ignorant of the claws, enhanced senses, and healing factor (not that its particularity worth bragging about in the first place)
>>29327208Reminds me, we need to have a pep talk with Noriko.Do we know in character that the drug only allowed them power and control to their full potential?
>>29327295phone call, assuming our and or hers still work
>>29327301>enhanced sensesHe knows we have those, I think.Not to that level, but yeah.
>>29327301Actually, the claws were out during the entire thing. We don't have enough control over them to prevent them from coming out during a fight.
>>29327295>>29327328Failing phone call, it will be relatively easy to track her by smell. Especially if she is bleeding.
>>29327356>Especially if she is bleeding.For like five seconds then it's healed.
>>29327084Probably wouldn't do much good seeing as the ship's on fire.
>>29327392If she has blood on her cloths we can still smell it.
Bishop + Noriko, now there's a combo if I ever saw one.
>>29327419or we could just smell all the dead goons' blood on her
>[X] Go check the backup shelters.Sirens getting close. Got to get out of here. You make your way inland, keeping to the side-streets. You fade into invisibility as you pass by one of the main roads at the same time as a convoy of shrieking police vehicles. Something slices through the night overhead, trailing little streamers of light. Was that Iron Man? The walk is long. You try to talk to the kid, but it doesn’t answer. You’re a little surprised when it looks up at you with big, black eyes. Something about that reminds you of those little grey guys from the X-Files.Well. Either it can’t speak, or it won’t speak. Whichever it happens to be, you tell it that stuff’s gonna be okay, and you’re not taking it back to another box. Though, really, you might as well be.It takes you hours. By the time you reach the dilapidated pile of a house Laura pointed out on the edge of the scar, it’s already 2:23, and there’s nobody in. The subway, then. You trek further into the scar. The cold clings to you and drives you on. You don’t know what you’re doing, or what you’re going to do. Everything has fallen apart. Again. Eventually, you find yourself at the entrance to the subway. It yawns downwards, seemingly into nothingness, but you can see pretty good in the dark. You step in, walking on into the dark. You feel the kid’s heart flicker to and fro and hold it a little tighter. You head on past the dusty old ticket machines and down the escalator toward the platforms below, and the sound of Kevin’s voice floats up to you, stirring a relieved sigh in your chest. You find the gang huddled around a blazing pile of scraps, the wreckage of a disused, partially-melted train trailing along behind them. Silence descends as you approach, and they look up at you. Noriko speaks first. “Laura told us what happened.” Right then. That’s good. >[ ] Plan now.>[ ] Plan tomorrow.
>>29327445>>[ ] Plan now.we need to organized before they do

>>29327592Seconded.We fucked up their chance at getting free from Creeper's grasp. We should apologize.
here's a planwe got to bugle job like nothing happened. we have Laura shadow us and look for any possible assailants/spies. she finds,intercepts, and captures (kills if she has to) the thug(s) and we interrogate.

Plan Now.Creeper is gonna come calling sooner or later.
Okay, back.And writan.
>>29327445Hey crustydo we have any idea how far the underground rube network stretches?If it stretches into the normal rail lines (via safe routes) then we may be able to use them to travel around the city unnoticed for a while, hopefully we can find a secluded spot to set everyone up in. That will put off having to look elsewhere for shelter in the meantime, and allow us to exit and enter the system without leaving tracks back to home.
>[X] Plan now.You sigh, sitting down around the fire.“Sorry.” Not much else you can say. “You tried.” Offers Noriko. Yes, you guess you did try. And fail. You glance along the various faces lit by the fire. Laura’s not there, but the boy from the ship is. He swallows nervously when he sees your eyes fall upon him.“Hi… I’m Lucas, by the way.” “John.” You respond, and glance down at the kid in your arms. “And I don’t know who this is, but they’re with us for now.” Another pall of silence drops. Eventually, Kevin interjects, posing the very good question of what the shit you guys are going to do now. >[ ] You’re planning to get out of the city.>[ ] You’re planning to find the Hellions.>[ ] You’re planning to get help from one of Creeper’s established rivals.>[ ] Ask where Laura is.

>[X] Ask where Laura is.“I’m… I’m not sure.”Lame. Almost unbidden, you feel your fingers kneading along your forehead. Everything’s bulging along at the front there, like a stormcloud growing fat and heavy with thunder. You have no idea what you should be doing. There’s probably only one person who does. “Well, firstly, where’s Laura? She should be here for this.” “She said she was checking the tunnels.” Replies Gaby, her small, mousy voice barely making it over the fire. “For… stuff?” Right.You guess you should find her? You really don’t know what the hell you should be– “We could leave.” Utters Noriko, suddenly, her voice slamming through the silence. “Us, I mean. Me and Kevin.” What? “What?” Kevin echoes your thoughts, staring incredulously over the fire at her. “Are you crazy? We’d still have this guy aft”– “We brought all this.” She interrupts, her tone hard. “We’re the ones he knows. Without us, John could just…” She looks up at you. Her expression is strange and distant, a circle of sparks passing around her eyes.“…disappear.” >[ ] Nope.>[ ] We’ll talk about this after I find Laura.>[ ] Creeper would find me anyway.>[ ] That sounds good, actually.>[ ] Write in.

>>29328360>[ ] Nope.>Not after what I did tonight.
>>29328360>[X] Creeper would find me anyway, i get the feeling i really pissed him of just now.>[X] Also, Nope.
>>29328360"No, I can't, I went against Creeper's interests in a way that marks me as a problem to him. I can only hide for so long before someone finds me.""I couldn't abandon you guys anyways, not after all this."
>>29328360"No. No running. No hiding. No giving anyone up to him. He knows I fucked him over anyway, threw down with Mortimer while I was freeing the-(look at Lucas) what was he doing? Trafficking? Smuggling? Kidnapping?"
>>29328360>>[ ] We’ll talk about this after I find Laura.>>[ ] Creeper would find me anyway."Creeper's probably coming for me now anyway. But this can wait. This affects all of us, so nothing gets decided until we're all here."

>>29328426This.Also with: >>29328457The subway will probably have way stations in the sides of the now abandoned tunnels that were used by the construction crews. Down here is the best place for us to base ourselves if were hiding out.Right now we need to lay low, and eventually grab one of creepers goons for some information.
>>29328360>(Snort) "That would be true if they didn't know me. They do. From a life I thought I was free of, but they do."I think we might want to form teams, buddy up Nori and Lucas since he can soak her excess energy and release it in a hoepfully more controlled manner. Stick Kevin, Gabby and Layla together since I think they get along. We take the nine year old somewhere safe with Laura, then regroup with them to GTFO of dodge. Just a thought if people are ok with splitting the party.
>>29328360>Nah"Layla and these guys on the other hand are in a needlessly dangerous position, we need to find a safer place for them, even if it's back at the orphanage."
>>29328360>[ ] We’ll talk about this after I find Laura.
>[X] Nope.>[X] We’ll talk about this after I find Laura.>[X] Creeper would find me anyway.“It won’t work.” You interject. “Creeper’s likely more pissed at me than any of you. I can hide, but I can’t hide forever. And, frankly, I kind of like having you guys around.”Layla nods vigorously, edging a little closer to Noriko. “I do, too. You can’t go. You’re, like, the only person here even half as cool as me.” Considering the gravity of the situation, you’ll let that remark slide for now, but you are clearly cooler. You wear sunglasses at night. Noriko glares at her hands. Sparks disentangle themselves from her hair in bright, electric-blue bunches. “I’ve messed everything up again, haven’t I?” Her hands ball into fists. The taste of ozone sputters briefly through the air. “This always happens…” “I think it was me this time. Look…” You set down the kid, standing up. “We’ll talk about this when I find Laura. Could somebody take care of this little…” You pause. “…guy while I'm gone? Find out if he’s got family in the city or something? He won’t talk to me.” Noriko nods and shifts over slightly. >Roll Perception>DC15>+3 modifier

>>29328933It involves a bunch of teenage mutant hobos and we have little luck with the dice lately. So: Most likely. Thought probably in a different way than what you were referencing

>>29328754>12>you guys suck so much at thisYou sniff at the dark, catching Laura’s scent. It leads you through the ruined train, where the seats melt into one another and the ceiling constantly feels like it’s about to crumple in on you. You make your way through the vehicle, all the way to the tunnel outside. The tracks stretch on into an impenetrable dark.You remember very little about this place. It was one of the two subway stations caught in the devastation of the scar, the other caving in entirely. If you recall correctly, the damage was so extensive that a bypass was constructed, leaving the place to rot in silence. Or, in almost silence. As you plod through the dark you feel the occasional, distant thrum of trains running. You could probably make your way around the whole city from here. It’d be faster than dodging through alleys. More discreet, too. You walk. The scent waxes and wanes, occasionally fading into the clinging, unsavoury miasma of smells that thrive in the dark. After an hour, you realize that you’re not even sure you’re following her scent anymore, and you’ve no idea where you are. Shit. You retrace your steps. Simple enough.Another hour and you’re still stalking through the dark. You must’ve gotten turned around somewhere. Just one wrong turn. Fuck. You keep going, eventually reaching a divergence. You think you can also see another opening along the side of the tunnel. It reeks of all the worst shit. >[ ] Left.>[ ] Right.>[ ] Horrible reeking side passage.
>>29329159>[ ] Left.
>>29329159>>[ ] Horrible reeking side passage.maybe Laura's there. Chicks dig rooms scented like excrement right?

>>29329159If we're doing the horrible side passage, do it while invisible.
>[X] Horrible reeking side passage.Possessed by a sudden surge of curiosity, you step into the side passage, steeling yourself against the god-awful smell. After fifteen minutes later, you are absolutely certain you should not have done this. You appear to be walking through a thin sheet of shit, piss, and everything else human beings flush down into the earth. You think you can smell a hint of methane and one point you pass by the rotting cadaver of a very drowned kitten. Almost reflexively, you press down on that little button in your head that sends you seeping out of visibility, though your steps are still accompanied by soft, wet thuds. The air is warm down here. Thick. Eventually, you make your way to an arched chamber where three other passages converge. The smell of rot hangs in the air. You’re about 90% sure that this is some part of the sewer system. On the opposite wall, something catches your eye. Looks like graffiti. >[ ] Investigate.>[ ] Move on.>[ ] Go back.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Investigate.Well… you’re already here and everything, so…You plod through the unthinkable mixture of fluids at your feet, trying to avoid anything particularly solid. The dark is hard and all-encompassing, but you can still see pretty well, your eyes working to expand on the barest scraps of light. It’s a symbol. Two lines curving inwards, intersecting, little prongs at the bottom. For a moment you think it’s some kind of super-stylized bat, but then it hits you – the brickwork on either side of each line is discoloured into a domed shape. It’s a helmet. A Magneto helmet. Huh. “It appears that these passages extend out into the sewer system.” You shit ten bricks, your claws unsheathing instantly. Had you not swallowed it, there would be a very girlish squeal echoing through the chamber.It’s Laura. It’s Laura’s voice. You turn around. Her eyes gleam against the dark, the only visible asset of her expression. >[ ] “Jesus Christ I had a heart attack.”>[ ] Ask her what she’s doing.>[ ] Tell her you guys are trying to formulate a plan.>[ ] Ask her if she’s seen any more graffiti around.>[ ] Write in.

You’ve got that energized, uneasy feeling, that overabundance of unneeded adrenaline. “…Jesus Christ I almost had a heart attack.” Laura frowns through the dark. “I’m sorry. I will be noisier in future.”“No, uh… that’s alright.” You breathe out slowly. “So this is where you were. Thinking we’re going to need a shower or seventy when we get out. What’re you doing out here?” “Reconnaissance.” She replies quickly. “You should also try to develop a working knowledge of these tunnel systems. They are an invaluable escape route.” “Right…” Invaluable and smelly. “Well, we were trying to think up a plan… for, y’know, our next move. You have any ideas?” Please have ideas. For a moment you think you see a confused dimness pass through her eyes. If you did, though, it’s gone as quickly as it appears. “I thought our course of action was obvious.” Well, she’s the only one. “Leaving the state presents multiple difficulties, and conflicts with your personal mission.” Personal mission?

>>29330208This is important to consider
>>29330229Fuck, right. Guess we forgot it in the midst of all the happening, excitement, and gunfire because this has been a rough night.
>>29330244Not necessarily, I don't know kingpins usual behavior, so I'm not sure what his general attitude towards his lackies generally is, but it might be along the lines of "If he couldn't handle his personal enemies, it's his own fault he's dead.
>>29330174Killing creeper would let us do just that. As long as we can do it without getting caught.
>>29330197>>29330196>>29330187are people still trying to protect Laura when its the other way around? She's our fucking babysitter and could have pulled both jobs without us.
>>29330399Kingpin is a businessman, first and foremost. Anything that threatens his assets or even his reputation is dealt with, as swiftly and as brutally as possible.
>>29330499yes, but there are such things as acceptable losses and Creeper could always be removed by a proxy (the hellions, Silvermane, the Punisher or any costumed idiot).
>>29330499Except Punisher, Daredevil and Sometimes Spider-Man.
>>29330544We could go out of our way to find spiderman to let him know about creeper/give him the details.Being a super hero he would be very interested.Would probably have to stage a fake robbery to find him though.
>>29330550it's not like he doesn't try to off those guys. Spider-man is a genuinely world-class super with a phenomenal set of powers, Daredevil and Punisher are badasses, and all three have loads of plot armor.
>[X] “That’s not going to be easy.” >[X] “Are you really alright with that? Won’t you risk exposing yourself?”“That’s…” You have thought about it (read: fantasized about it). Creeper, for all his influence and power, a mortal man. He’s just as vulnerable to you are to being shuffled off the mortal coil. “…that’s not going to be easy. He’s a made man, Laura. The Kingpin has his back.” She’s silent for a moment, as if considering her words carefully. You see a tentative glimmer pass across her face.“…It… it has been said, I believe… that nothing worth doing is easy.” She fidgets very slightly, and returns to her more formal tone. “Wilson Fisk does not worry me.”“He should.” “I’ve killed for Fisk. Creeper is not part of his inner circle. He is expendable.” You pause. She watches you intently. You had no idea she’d worked for someone like Fisk. You wonder just how many people she has killed for, but squash the question before it can take shape. “What about you? This could expose you.” “The other option is leaving the state.” She cocks her head to the side slightly. “It’s an acceptable risk.” You swallow. You don’t like this, but she might be right. Maybe you do have to kill Creeper.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->THREAD 38: END>Congratulations!

OOOOKAY, so, due to changes in my schedule, I'm going to be awarding X-Points again sooner than I'd thought. You still haven't unlocked any new Primary, Secondary, or Tertiary mutations yet, so you'll mostly be spending these on Extrapolative Mutations. Note that these are a WIP right now, so don't decide on any yet. And as usual I'll be around for a bit to answer questions.

>>29331040He's considered a hoax and an urban myth by the general public. When police see him they either die because they are in an awful place, aren't really believed all too much, or assume mutie.
>>29330997How close were we to beating and or killing toad? what about us surprised him the most ?
>>29330997Was Flaming Skull part of the Invaders? Is he still active today?Is there an X-Force these days?How many Time Travelers are running around?>>29331043Take an Apple Ale or hard cider, drink down the neck, replace with Fireball, the result tastes like apple cider with mulled spices...but gets you drunk as fuck.
>>29331101The electricity was pretty SHOCKING.He really really did not expect you to be super strong.And, you were pretty close. You certainly had the upper hand by the end.
>>29331128Sounds like a party trick ill need to try.Thanks.
>>29331128Blazing Skull was a thing. He may be active today. On the subject of burning skellymen, Fever Pitch is also around.The X-Men are almost X-Force by default. Many.
>>29331176Let it sit a moment after adding the fireball to the apple ale or hard cider, gives it time to mix.I prefer it with Red's Apple Ale myself; but go with your favorite local brew if you can.
>>29331151next time we get him by the tongue...
>>29331183What about Jim Hammond and Namor? They still around? Has Captain America been found yet? What's Bucky up to?
>>29331231Kinda surprised you didn't try last time.Thread archived.
>>29331072I'm surprised he didn't show up at the boat. A gang war with innocents caught in the middle seems right up his alley.
Thank god people didn't jump the gun and bought a combined power.I was hoping we could bank it and power up our main powers first.Plus Crusty siad more would unlock the more levels we get.
>>29331279Cap's been found. Bucky's... around.Jim and Namor are busy being awesome.
>>29331320to be honest the best next step is healing 3 and then light armor, if were going to fight the way we have been instead of super stealthy. With the new combi powers though, with healing three we should then go after the increases to our main like you said.
>>29331320we couldn't even if we wanted tono banked X points atm
>>29331329>Bucky's... around.Busy doing Winter Soldier things, I bet.
>>29331290I was thinking it, I was thinking it very hard.Okay...is Legion running around?Does Apocalypse sleep beneath the sands, imprisoned or intentionally disabled?
>>29331402Yes.Maybe, maybe, maybe.
>>29331364Would rather heavy armor to be honest, emergency explosive/superstrength shield would be nice.
>>29331391Didn't crusty just give us one?>>29331364Healing 3(big fight coming up) or enhanced senses 4(to find the creaper), or maybe agility is a must if we really are going after the creaper.It also seems like we found a secret to his powers thanks to ours.
>>29331462Heavy is for our sister, and unless we put some points in agility, the cost of having medium or heavy for our mobility would be a bit too much.
>>29331488Don't think so, pretty sure he said he'd start giving them to us again sooner than expected. I'm guessing after we confront the Creeper.
>>29331462Problem with medium and heavy is that it slows you down and restricts movement.Some things just can't be blocked, so being able to dodge is a better idea.>>29331488Healing is the most versatile use for keeping us the hell alive. After that its a crap shoot, but i would vote for primary powers like senses 4.
>>29331517>>29331547Can't dodge explosions, I still think medium is a good idea, but we do need to step up our agility first.
>>29331617hence why level 3 healing first.Level 3 healing and light armor will probably make us able to withstand most conventional weaponry and general beatings.
>>29331439So, forearm plates, are they kind of like Batman's forarm spines, in that they're kind of a parrying device?
>>29331760The Forearm Barbs are like that, though longer and more offensively capable.The Plates are more like biological gauntlets.
>>29331808So a bit more utility from the barbs, but more defense value from the plates, cool.
>>29331808The various bone upgrades - barbs, plates, elbow blades - are they mutally exclusive, or are they meldable, as it were?
>>29332022You can purchase all of them.
>>29332048...Oh man, we could become Mutie Guyver
if we take healing vitae, will Gaby think its some kind of divine miracle? She better not start preaching "the book of mutie crack bitch"considering the other ways we learned of new powers, how the hell are going to find out our blood heals people? real interested in seeing that prose
>>29332048It's probably incredibly painful to activate them all at once though.That's like, all the skin on your forearm just fuckin exploding.
>>29332116Gabby along with most religious people in this world think mutant powers are cased by the devil. So no, she probably wouldn't even let us heal her with our blood if we asked.
>>29332048So, did you have anything planned for if we had ever taken phasing?
>>29332128well, since we could activate them without healing powers (as a presumption to this quest type) i doubt that is the case. Unless without healing powers they would be stuck on show permanently.
>>29332116>"the book of mutie crack bitch"...I want to see someone publish that book.With that exact title.
>>29332205A few things, yeah.For example, something like Loa's ability.
>>29332280>For example, something like Loa's ability.And that is?(Not a comic book reader)
>>29332280Damn, should have taken that. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
I wonder what Creeper's reaction upon hearing Barracuda's report will be. "That scrawny little nigga lifted a mothafucking metal container full of dudes before opening it and when the frog dude used his tongue against him, he grabbed it in the air and was like 'ZZZZAP MOTHERFUCKER!' after which he punted the guy in the ceiling like a gangsta!"
>>29332586>>29332389>>29332280>>29332437 I would like to take the opportunity to say all those people who said Phasing was a shit power.YOU ARE ALL FUCKING MORONS
>>29333584Actually a fair amount of people didn't want it because it seemed overpowered.
>>29334053all this time and phase friends still can't let go
>>29334053I voted against it because I hate the power.
>>29334053Exactly, many of us said it took too many points to become useful.
>>29333584Calm youself. Regrets or not, the time has passed.The age of the phasebro is spent.We should focus on what to get in the near future.Hint: the answer is 'healan'.
>>29334053Being able to phase through walls and attacks doesn't seem TOO useful to you?That's why I was against it. Well, too late now either way.
A note: You wouldn't be guaranteed to get Matter Disintegration from Phasing. That's just something I considered. It's very likely that it'd have far less Extrapolative options than other stuff, not to mention taking up more Secondary slots than some of your abilities.
