As a result, as your idols are performing on stage, Cole is left alone with K-Zwolf to hold off a very angry high school football team!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VXI2MF30zUYou scowl as you survey the battle scene. It's basically two against eight at the moment, and there were sure to be more football players hiding in the crowd. However, K-Zwolf was a military combat robot and Cole had her electricity powers, which might even the playing field.Maybe.>Cole stay defensive while K-Zwolf goes on offensive.>Cole go on offensive while K-Zwolf goes on defensive.>Both go on defensive.>Both go on offensive.>Other

>>30267960>>Both go on offensive.Let's go bitches!
>>30267960>>Cole go on offensive while K-Zwolf goes on defensive.K-Zwolf is pretty reactionary. Cole can dish out a few hits and fall back if yelled at. Keep an eye out for any other concealed aggressors.
>>30267960Cole pulls an electric explosion or an electric AOE while K-Zwolf gets out.Or have Cole scares the football players into wetting themselves or at least pretends to have snuck in a weapon in.
>>30267960>>Cole go on offensive while K-Zwolf goes on defensive.I have a feeling Cole isn't particularly talented at fighting defensively.

Just try not to hurt the crowd.""Heh, I could always use a little challenge." Cole grins. Her hands crackle with electricity as the crowd oohs and aahs at the effect.There's still a bit of distance between Cole and her opponents, though. She could actually try using her lightning bolts to thin out her opponents. The obvious drawback to that strategy, though, was the huge potential for collateral damage, especially with the crowd of students gathering around to watch the fight.>Thin them out with lightning bolts.>Engage them in close combat.>Other
>>30267960>Cole go on offensive while K-Zwolf goes on defensive.

>>30268250>>Thin them out with lightning bolts.
>>30268283She needs to show off what she learned.I feel Cole is going to be one of those punk band idols.

>>30268308Bamboo sword with copper wires?
>>30268250>>Engage them in close combat.
Rolled 8>>30268250"Take it up close, Cole. No sense electrocuting the audience." You warn."Yeah, yeah." Cole nods as she brings her arms up close to her chest in a boxing stance, her fists still charged with electrical energy. You see her eyes flit about her potential targets, and she focuses in on the nearest one.>roll 1d20

>>30268413>>30268394if we really need Cole to get brutal and not care about taking people alive. find a chainsaw that has a electric motor instead of a gas fired one. Cole can use her power to run her chainsaw and no one else could use it due to the fact they could not power it.

Let me guess, ALL liquids can short out Cole.
>>30268578This might be what happens.
>>30268560>>30268575the dice has abandoned me!
>>30268571Welp, sorry Cole.
>>30268602It never was with us.Thus why it's a bad mechanic to rely on.
>>30268578So they toss the pigs blood and short out Cole.
Maybe this quest is cursed.
>>30268578One bucket o pigs blood...one shorted out Cole.Cavalry radsizo: yes captcha Cole needs some rad cavalry
>>30268663The more popular a quest gets, the worst the rolls get.
>>30268663no, shit happens. we deal with it. that or producer can jump in and take the pig blood hit for cole?
>>30268663The more we like a character, the worst they roll.
So guys, what should we do with the extra money from Cole's death. What sort of idol should we get? Or maybe an engineer?
>>30268644I like 3dX personally. That delicious probability curve...
>>30268714if she bites it I say we drop the quest as it'd be cleared that this quest has no good future.
>>30268483As Cole closes in on her target, the football player panics and backs off. However, he tries to grab the first thing he can find to use as some sort of impromptu weapon. Unfortunately for Cole, the first thing he finds is a bow of ice used to keep drinks cool. However, at this point most of it was melted into ice cold water, and he hurls the entire thing at her.It's a direct hit, drenching Cole in freezing water and the electricity stored in her fists fizzles out. You see Cole freeze in a mix of panic and fear.COLE'S ELECTRICITY SKILL HAS BEEN DISABLED>Keep fighting, Cole! Remember what I taught you!>K-Zwolf, swap in!>Other

>>30268978>>30268975What is it with the dice right now?Thank the Dice Gods, I guess. And good on Cole for not letting a little water beat her.

>>30269012We get a Star Power AND a CRITICAL HIT.
>>30268975>>30268978Maybe this is some sick joke of the universe that conspires to have Cole become some kind of goddess on earth.
PEOPLE STOP ROLLING NOW LEST YOU WASTE GOOD ROLLS
>>30268975>>30268978It seems that I have some new content for next week...
>>30269033Oh cool. I like to think this was a way for the dice to help Cole overcome her fear and grow as a person.
>>30268975>>30268978Oh.So that happened.
>>30269053BUT WHAT IF WE START ROLLING ONES AGAIN?WE HAVE TO ROLL THE ONES OUT.
So, uh, double 20s. Does this mean we bank a Star Power AND keep the crit since there are two?
>>30269078so far I've seen a wasted 20 and a 13 rolled after the first three.
>>30269062>Bikers AND the Football TeamWhat next? A maximum security prison? Will she be some kind of symbol of purity and redemption?
>>30269094>Cole's attack codewordNow THIS would make for an interesting idea.
So what do you think Cole did to that guy? Dislocate his arms with a sickening crunch?
>>30269102well, there is a zone they have one in. my god, if Cole can pull that off, she might be indeed be the bringer of light into this dark city.
>>30269177>It was love at first punch!
>>30269177She either got activated or her powers just came back with a vengeance.
>>30269183You guys are forgetting who Cole is. She is the bringers of darkness, the one to doom delta city into eternal darkness.
We're not banking any of the twentys?
>>30269224We auto bank and get Critical when we roll double 20.
>>30269217This city is already in a period of eternal darkness. Cole can't really do much worse to it.
>>30269253maybe we are reading this one wrong. she might instead bring balance back to the force?
>>30269177He's dead Jim.
>>30268975>>30268978>DOUBLE CRIT>STAR POWER GAINED>TOTAL STAR POWER: 2The football player lunges forward, but he's all muscle and no technique. Cole easily sees his clumsy punch coming and ducks under it. Now with the initiative back in her hands, Cole grins evilly before going to work, sending punch after punch into the football players face before finishing him off with a uppercut that sends him flying into the refreshment table, sending snacks and cups flying everywhere.However, even more football players begin melding out of the crowd. It looked like the full goddamn team now, around twenty people against K-Zwolf and Cole."All right, which one of you ladies wants to go first?" Cole grins, cracking her knuckles.However, everybody pauses when they hear music playing in the background, and not from the stage. It starts off faint at first, but it slowly gets louder and louder.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOikQWAL8qcSuddenly, the door bursts open, sending students scattering in all directions as Kaneda drives directly into the room on his signature red motorcycle, huge speakers rigged on its sides blasting romantic music."COLE!" Kaneda bellows, "I STILL HAVEN'T HAD THAT DANCE YET!"You just blink for a moment before breaking out into laughter. Holy shit what."Hey, help me out with these jokers and I might consider it." Cole grins."Haha! I like that!" Kaneda laughs as he leaps from his bike and takes down four football players at once with a flying tackle.At this point the football players are totally confused since they're being hit from multiple directions now.>Take them out one by one.>They're confused.

>>30269315 >They're confused. Take out as many as you can!Best daughter
>>30269315NO! Cole, Kaneda and Zwolf have got this. We need to look out for the mastermind behind this. The one orchastrating those three groups. Clarissa Hastings.
>>30269315>"COLE!" Kaneda bellows, "I STILL HAVEN'T HAD THAT DANCE YET!">MeatloafI like him!>Take them out one by one.
>>30269367 Hollywood/weird attempted to make a life action Akira, but recently they said they are effectively permantly shelving it, thank god!
>>30269391too bad, letting them become a couple is confirmed bad, i have a feeling that Merc is gonna do the same thing with all the girls.

>>30269410It is an easy way to stir shit up, with out people being paranoid.who the fuck am i kidding, there were people last thread that were paranoid of this bad ass.
>>30269410Well, just let it be secret. I think Cole and Kaneda will get along well and, given Cole's social skills, that's not something to dismiss lightly.
Rolled 14>>30269315Cole's blood was up now, and she dashes towards the biggest group of football players she can find. There's a group of four trying to decide whether to go for Kaneda, K-Zwolf, or Cole until Cole makes that choice for them.>roll 1d20

>>30269531I... kinda like that idea.
>>30269531Now, as a driver... there's an idea...The mechanic would be that girl in the engineering shop. At least, hopefully.
>>30269531Does that mean we can get a kick ass bike for our girls?
>>30269513Because despite it being the US, japanese purity obession somehow exists.Dunno how exactly as it seems like soemthing Merc smashed together, forgetting the cultural differences.
>>30269513in both western and eastern Idol industries, they have a no boyfriend rule, but in the east it is brought up into a whole other level.>>30269531Again i prefer getting professionals, and have these guys work as interns.
>>30269575it still exist in the west, but no to the same level it does in the east.
>>30269531>>30269560We always have room for interns, and it could be considered 'work experience' if the school does that...
>>30269560I like it but I rather imply a no relationship rule though
>>30269578>in the east it is brought up into a whole other levelWait. Explain to me, what do you mean by "a whole other level"?
>>30269578>WesternReally? I didn't get that notion at all.
>>30269568I think it means we get a kick ass bike for Cole, and a small fleet of nearly comparable models for the rest of the troop.
>>30269575I think at some point there was a counterculture to the current promiscuity we're seeing in our society.One generation is liberal, the next is conservative. That's usually what happens. You go from Roaring 20's to Prohibition to the 50's, then to the 60's and 70's to the 80's. We're in the liberal swing right now, but the pendulum will go the other way eventually.
>>30269510Cole manages to get close to them and literally rips them apart. One takes an uppercut, send his head snapping back, a second grunts in pain as she kicks his kneecap in, the third wails as his arm is dislocated after throwing a missed punch, and last takes a kick to the gut, forcing him to double over.Meanwhile, K-Zwolf has taken down to football players trying to sneak up behind Cole. Kaneda has taken down another two players as well, but he's quickly getting bogged down.It was now 8 against 3. 4 players were piling onto Kaneda while the other four are regrouping.>Send Cole to help Kaneda.>Send Cole to take out the unengaged players.>Split up Cole and K-Zwolf.>Other

>>30269640>Send Cole to take out the unengaged players.
>>30269665Well, I don't mean completely conservative, I'm just talking about the lens in which things are viewed. They don't want twerking pop singers, they want pure idols. See what I'm saying?

>>30269679I thought it was a matter of decency though there's no such limitations on teenage singers/etc. It's hard not to see a tabloid where a female singer is dating a boy band member.>>30269701Something like that. The death threat example that's in my mind is when Mamoru Miyano (aka Light, Setsuna) got married and announced his wife's pregancy. Cue things like "I hope she miscarries!"Pretty absurd that people's fandom of their characters extend that far.
>>30269640>Send Cole to help Kaneda.should the producer help? or is he handcuffing downed players?
>>30269640>>Send Cole to help Kaneda.
>>30269640>Send Cole to take out the unengaged players.Gotta make it look like there's no affection between her an Kaneda, right?
>>30269736It is more laxed in the west so it isn't noticeable, but if you check out teen performers and information pertaining to their relationship status it is usually single unless it was with another celebrities.
>>30269823I think her helping someone that tried to help her would look more heroic/etc.
>>30269843I think that's less purity and more "not good tabloid fodder"
>>30269850this, we can nip this in the bud later if cole is starting to like the guy.
>>30269640"Cole, you mind helping Kaneda out?" You ask."I guess. Idiot got himself into some pretty big trouble." Cole laughs lightly.She begins to push her way though the crowd, K-Zwolf dutifully following her.>roll 1d20

>>30269911You know, it's at this point I have to question the consistency of Cole's combat ability.She really has been consistent in every fight she has been in, but can't seem to beat us.

Kaneda has his work cut out for him.
>>30269946A teenage girl against a trained, cyborg military veteran is a whole different than some football punks.
>>30269946We're a vet of course she can't beat us.
>>30269911At that point, the football players were ganging up on Kaneda, with two pinning his arms while the other two were repeating hitting him while he was helpless. That is, until Cole appears behind the players attacking Kaneda and smashes their heads together, knocking them flat. With an opening, Kaneda manages to wriggle free of his captors' grasp, socking one in the face and headbutting the other."Not exactly my idea of a dance." Cole grins."But you look like you're enjoying it!" Kaneda laughs.>roll 1d20+20

Rolled 17 + 20>>30270086That may be possible.
Can we roll WITHOUT the + 20? Because I think that's what did it.
Rolled 17 + 20>>30270120Highly unlikely. Provide some evidence to back up your claim beyond confirmation bias of a single incidence.

How does the embedded dice roller exactly work anyway?
>>30270008>>30270013Cole and Kaneda jump at the final four players together. However, it's not quite the rout that they were expecting. Apparently these guys were the team's tougher players. Cole aims a punch at one of them, but he takes it without so much as budging. The player then grains and grabs her arm, painfully twisting it around. Cole cries out in pain and tries to hit him with her other arm, but the second player grabs it and holds it down. Kaneda tries to help but is tackled from behind by the third player, who pins him to the ground."Heh, time to show this bitch how Varsity rolls." The fourth player grins and cracks his knuckles."ALLIES IN DANGER." K-Zwolf buzzes. "TARGET PRIORITY!?"Obviously, Cole was the higher priority here. She was one of your idols, after all. However, with three players around her, K-Zwolf might have a harder time at it. Kaneda, meanwhile, was only being pinned by one player. If K-Zwolf could take him out fast enough, perhaps Kaneda's help could improve the odds...>Prioritize Cole>Prioritize Kaneda>Other

>>30270225>Prioritize ColeLike it was any choice but this.
>>30270225>OtherZwolf save Cole, the Producer saves Kaneda
>>30270344Would this count as "getting involved"? I mean, Kaneda isn't one of our idols.
>>30270359It would, so I oppose it.
>>30270225>Prioritize ColeAlso, from now on we *really* need to reemphasize combat training for our idols.
>>30270344We can't get involved personally, that would verify that this isn't somehow part of the show.
>>30270359Yes it does.
>>30270377why? so the dice rolling 1 would undo that?
>>30270381then we need a assistant, a cyborg ninja assasstant!
>>30270391This. Getting double 1s isn't something training can mitigate.
>>30270377Right. Because combat training can overcome double 1s with a +20 combat modifier...
>>30270377Don't matter how good they are if the Dice Gods decide to make them kill/ded.
>>30270391>>30270406>>30270410>>30270414Well we need to do SOMETHING.
>>30270432Besides telling Merc to improve his system so the faulty /tg/ dice doesn't screw us over like the skinny guy in prison who's prone to soap dropping.
>>30270432Not roll double 1s twice in the same thread. Shit happens. Don't confuse acts of god with actual issues.

>>30270432There's nothing to be done though. There's always going to be a minuscule chance of them fucking up. Cole could not have had a greater advantage going into that roll, but a fuckup occurred anyway. That's the nature of probability, sometimes a sure thing doesn't come through.
>>30270462I love you motherfucker
>>30270432Sacrifice another goat then. It worked last time.
>>30270483>insucule chance of them fucking up>/tg/ dicechoose one.
>>30270496double 1s are rare, as fucks.The current dice system is geared towards 20s instead.
>>30270446>>30270483This shit is happening every combat and quite frankly it's getting out of hand. There has to be something we can do to keep the dice gods from screwing us over again and again.
>>30270526this is the first time we rolled double 1s.
>>30270526>This shit is happening every combatReally? Aside from this thread, how many instances of double 1s have we had?And for that matter, even though we've rolled double 1s, have they caused some horrible unreasonable disaster? No, they haven't.The only way the system could get more forgiving is if Merc just wrote a novel and did away with rolls entirely.
Rolled 9, 2 = 11>>30270449K-Zwolf pounces on the player that was getting ready to beat Cole, knocking him to the ground. At the same time, its tail lashes out, whipping one of the players holding Cole down in the face. The distraction causes him to loosen his grip enough that Cole manages to slip her arm out and sucker punch the other player holding her.Meanwhile Kaneda proceeds to struggle with the player keeping him pinned, with mixed success.Now it was basically 2v2.>roll 2d20

>>30270520maybe so but the fact that ones are so common are another story and the main flaw of Merc's system is assuming ones aren't so common.>>30270526Yeah I wish that stats would have more effects on the roll than they do.

>>30270578That 20 better be our inconsistent Cole!
>>30270520Double 1s are ... like, 58/8000, right?That's a pretty low chance. less than 1%.
>>30270595Is it for Cole or K-ZWolf
>>30270595Don't we already have one banked?
Why is being Cole suffering?
>>30270601look at>>30270556Merc is being very forgiving and even geared the dice system towards 20s, hell a nat 20 is an automatic crit success, while a 1 is just a failure.
>>30270632we have 2
>>30270595Yeah, is it for Cole or K-Zwolf?>N
>>30270595The roll is for K-Zwolf.
>>30270636for cole, she can take it, for she is the Idol we want, but the Idol this city deserves.
>>30270581That would be Rin. Not a bad idea actually.>>30270601The real issue is that ones mess with idea of character progression. Under the current system no matter what we do there is always a 1/20 chance that we fail at whatever we do. It makes stats feel worthless.
>>30270688That's only when she's singing though
>>30270675what? the robo dog gets star points too?>>30270683Doh! correction "She is not the Idol this city wants, but the Idol this city deserves"
>>30270675Oh, actually, that'll make this whole episode look like well choreographed product placement for the robo wolf. That would be good.
>>30270644doesn't explain all the shit that went wrong despite our best efforts due to all the ones that pop up.>>30270688Indeed on the whole stats being worthless thing. It might have worked in his early quests as 1s were pretty rare, but here? they pop up like malware on a porn site.
>>30270688its actually 12% for both 20 and 1, every thing else is below./tg/ dice are geared towards extremes.
>>30270754Did anything catastrophic happen because of the 1s and the cit 1?
>>30270728That... would be pretty awesome.
>>30270776I hope so. Otherwise it'd be a waste.Then again, the 1s negated a +20 modifier, that's pretty catastrophic in and of itself.
>>30270776Rochelle got banged up so badly she had to sit out a show.
>>30270688>Under the current system no matter what we do there is always a 1/20 chance that we fail at whatever we do.But that isn't even close to true. We have Star Power to offset them, and we almost always have at least 1 banked. It's only when you get double 1s that we can't do anything about it.At least know what the hell you're talking about before you say words.
>>30270716Maybe there's a way to give one of the girls that ability in combat. Or better yet, find some way have the ability available once per combat.
>>30270830with the way ones pop up we have to bank a ton of star power to offset most of them and with the way trends, we might be seeing more double 1s in the future.
>>30270814So nothing in THIS quest has been done in by the 1s and only an automatic win bonus was taken out.So far all you have is saying that we will die because of 1s.>>30270823Was that catastrophic?Also the way the anon is describing it sounds something worse instead of a failure.Since i don't want this quest to always have us winning.
>>30270865except for this thread 1s have not been that common in the quest.(compared to others)
>>30270871>not always winningeven when plans and stats suggest barring freak accidents, should? 1s and their effect would be like Chuck norris losing to a grandmother with two bad knees.>>30270888Dunno compared to Merc's other dice quests, they are more common (only thing worse would be that VMQ!Falynn PoV thread)
>>30270871>So nothing...we will die because of 1s.Actually, I think we just failed to notice the ninjas (martial arts club) make their sneaky entrance through the giant hole Kaneda punched in the building.
>>30270865Yeah, sometimes bad shit happens, what of it? If you look at the actual frequency of rolls, the frequency of 1s and 20s on any given dice are, fucking shockingly, both pretty damn close to 5%! There isn't some kind of insidious, weight towards 1s, and the system itself is geared towards 20s being more meaningful (100% guaranteed success) and bankable to offset ones.You're panicking over illusions, confirmation bias, and general retardation.
>>30270904A good writer can make the crit 1s seem reasonable.
>>30270921I doubt you actaully analysized all the rolls in this thread or all of /tg/ and likely reading off of some general thing that likely doesn't even apply to actual application.
>>30270904I'm bassing this off from 2 seperate quest i follow.1.HMQ.(crack bitching is a lot more common in there)2.Digger quest(where the nat 20s has forced the QM to nerf them because of how common they are in the quest.)
>>30270595>STAR POWER POINT GAINED>TOTAL STAR POWER: 3Working together, Cole and K-Zwolf bring the last two players down. Cole with a solid right hook, and K-Zwolf with another lunging tackle. Even Kaneda manages to beat up the guy keeping him pinned.With that, the fight is over. The assorted students all give a rousing cheer of of applause, satisfied by what they think is a very convincing act."Hey, Producer, I think I see that Clarissa bitch in the crowd. Nice white dress and everything." You hear Cole say. Sure enough, you can see Clarissa among the crowd, a huge look of displeasure on her face. Cole's gaze then turns to a bucket of pig blood, which had apparently been left sitting under a table, forgotten. "It would be a huge shame if anything were to happen to it.">It's the least she deserves.>Let it go. We've already won.>Other
>>30270968>Let it go. We've already won.Be the better person Cole. (Also we don't want an angry daddy to deal with.)
>>30270968K-Zwolf has cloaking right? I saw Cole returns to the stage and defends, while K-Zwolf dips its tail in the blood and starts writing on her with it. Something along the lines of "Gotcha"
>>30270968>Let it go. We've already won.
>>30270968>Let it go. We've already won.Last thing we need is Daddy being pissed at us.
>>30270968>>Let it go. We've already won.Pat Cole on the head. "Good job." Then turn to Kaneda and ask, "Weren't you asking for a dance with Cole?"
>>30270968let it go, but dispose of the buckets please.
>>30270968>>Let it go. We've already won.
>>30270968>>Let it go. We've already won.you don't fuck with this girl directly cole.
>>30270830>>30270921I've already spoken about how I think giving /tg/ access to star power was a bad idea and killed the idea of critical success, but the main problem I have here is that nat ones make a mockery of the idea we have can effect the outcome of combat. No matter what we do, no matter how hard we train, there is nothing we can to to effect this weakness. Combat is supposed to be about decisions, not hoping the dice roll well.
>>30270968>Let it go. We've already won."Ignore her. She is nobody now."
>>30271026We'll probably run into her again.
>>30271025we can its called traits, Rin has a trait that allows her to reroll once per performance.
>>30270968>Let it go. We've already won.We've won, no need to rub it in
>>30271051Yeah, but now we won, let's not give her any attention.
>>30271057How do we even earn traits in this game system?
>>30271094Important character development. A.K.A. Solving their problems like Rin's family.
>>30271094Practice is a good one, but i feel like they would be more specific like they can only reroll when in close combat or something along those lines.
>>30271057That is only Rin and not during combat. None of the other girl's traits can effect a nat 1. Let's face it, the current system feels little better than random chance. It's the RPG equivalent of candyland: zero skill, just dice rolls.
>>30270968>Other>>30270984so much this.
>>30271114I'm more inclined to believe it to be teaching them since we taught them coordination 1(allows them to work better together).
>>30271121>>30271136Which brings us right back to the beginning of this whole discussion. The girls need more combat training.
>>30271122The other girls have been shown to learn new traits and it is know that traits can be leveled up, so it is safe to say that the same rules apply to combat traits.
>>30271122Did you ever stop to consider that maybe it's more than just dice modifiers?Like maybe if Cole was less of a hardass, she wouldn't have been able to dismantle half a football team off the back of a single roll?
>>30271143I'm for it, but the guys arguing for a change in the dice system are saying that training means nothing.
>>30270984Fuck it, I'll second this.That's a good way to make an enemy, but damn if it doesn't have style.
>>30270984Ok, now that's damn funny.Supporting.
>>30270968"Let it go, Cole. We've already won this one." You say. "No sense causing more trouble.""Fiiiiine." Cole sighs. "Well, I can't say I didn't have a hell of a time, though.""Heh, good to hear.""Is high school always like this? Because if it is I have been SERIOUSLY missing out!""No, Cole, this is not usual for a high school.""Awww."Meanwhile, on stage, the rest of your idols transition to the final song of the performance, which is a much slower paced song more suited to ballroom dancing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww-wpIldBUcKaneda then walks up to Cole and holds out his hand."Would you give me the honor?" He asks."Producer?" Cole whispers quietly.>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.>Denied.>Other
>>30271136Or we can get that engineer girl to waterproof Cole's augs.
>>30271200She doesn't have Augs. It's biological.
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.Eh, why not.
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.
>>30271196>>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.captcha says "Maximum aimsat". Go, Cole, make fatheru proud.
>>30271196>"Producer?" Cole whispers quietly."Sometimes, you need to be careful about letting fans too close. But not this time, I think. Good job tonight, cole"
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.Pull him up by the collar, grimace."Be sure to behave."
>>30271196I have a very bad feeling about that last bucket of blood.It's going to get tossed on Cole while she's dancing, isn't it...
>>30271167There's a large group in this thread that only wants to focus on singing and dancing. They don't want to discuss combat beyond rolling dice over and over again like children.
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.He's earned it.
>>30271232K-Zwolf will provide security, were good.
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.>Tease her, don't get lovey dovey now
>>30271196>>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.There's a chance that this goes horribly wrong, but unless Kaneda is insane we should be fine. Or if Cole falls horribly in love or something, but I'm pretty sure she'll be able to handle it without breaking.
>>30271196>Let her do what she wants. She's earned it.we'll just drag kaneda and our new tech girl back to the office later.
>>30271232>I have a very bad feeling about that last bucket of blood.>>30270968>e. Cole's gaze then turns to a bucket of pig blood, which had apparently been left sitting under a table, forgotten. "It would be a huge shame if anything were to happen to it."Take the bucket ourself, and...... turn it into the principal.He's had a problem student, and if we set(not dump) the thing on his desk, he'll have reason/cause/leverage to do something a bout it.
>>30271284Hopefully, we recorded the entire thing, the Producer and W-Zwolf. This would provide excellent blackmail material against the cheerleader's father.
>>30271196hey Merc, can the facilies at our HQ get upgraded or enlarged to hold more?
>>30271278Tech girl I can maybe see, maybe, or at least I understand the logic, but why bother with Kaneda? He's a FAN. Fans are like walking advertising that you don't have to pay for and it gives you money whenever you do stuff.He'll probably end up being a minor celebrity in the hardcore Cole fan circles because he danced with her.
>>30271311lets do that when we actually have a full staff fluff.I myself am hoping we hire adults and not teenagers.(they could be interns though)
>>30271196"It's up to you." You grin. "You're a big girl, Cole.""T-thanks, Producer.""Just be sure to tell him that I want him to be on his best behavior, or I will FIND HIM.""Ha, I'll tell him that." Cole laughs lightly.From your vantage point on the stage, you can see Cole and Kaneda holding hands, gingerly stepping over the unconscious bodies of the football team as they made their way to the dance floor."So uh, how the hell did you get back on campus? I thought you got kicked off!" You hear Cole say."Pffft. The school's security fence may be strong, but it's not very tall. I just ramped it.""Seriously!?""Oh yeah, I do it all the time."Heh. What an interesting guy.>Keep the channel open and eavesdrop on them.>Cut the connection and give Cole some privacy.>Other

Kaneda laughs.Well, so far so good."So, that Producer guy, is he your father or something?" Kaneda asks."What?!?" Cole gasps. "Oh god no! He's nothing of the sort!"For some reason, even though you know that's true, it kind of stings a little to hear her say that."Huh, weird. He certainly acts like it.""Uh huh, he's a really nice guy." Cole nods. "But... there's some times where he gets a little to nosy.""Huh?""Oh, well, have you ever had that feeling that you were being watched? Like some little electric tingle the back of your head?""Um, can't say that I have.""Well, I do."

>>30271633>>30271621No. Don't bug her any more. She wants to be left alone and we should respect that. No distracting her, just let her be.
>>30271596>Grin and shrug. Mouth the words "Proud of you" at her. Then move off to see how the others are.
>>30271596Damn, we taught her the wrong trait. Oh well, she's on her own now.
>>30271596>Respect Cole's desire for privacy.So, later when she's all angry, exaggerated sad dad pout, or maximum-ham THIS WAS ALL MY ELABORATE PLAN TO UNLOCK YOUR TRUE POWERS speech?
>>30271596>Respect Cole's desire for privacy.the morale drop is BAD.nice going guys.
>>30271596Clever girl...captcha: anxiety lifyissEven captcha is worried for Cole>Respect Cole's desire for privacy.
>>30271626here>>30271621going with this.
>>30271676she got a new skill it was worth it fuck you and your stupid face
>>30271656>So, later when she's all angry, exaggerated sad dad pout, or maximum-ham THIS WAS ALL MY ELABORATE PLAN TO UNLOCK YOUR TRUE POWERS speech?MAXIMUM HAM!
>>30271676we have a head doctor its not as bad as you people are making it out to be.
So any parenting suggestions for Cole besides letting her be more independent?
>>30271676We can make it up to her later.
>>30271699I'd think said head doctor woudl rather us not fucking up their heads in the first place.>>30271686typical /tg/, so socially inept.>>30271596>Respect Cole's desire for privacy.Hopefully we have a chance to make up for that morale drop or else she might go and quit before she could use that useful ability.
>>30271656Don't you love how our star power will have been reset to zero by the time we have to roll for that?
>>30271686>>30271699the counselor doesn't raise morale, just helps to prevent it from bottoming out. got a plan to restore the morale then anons?
>>30271727Ease on the teasing?Give her a corn dog?
>>30271718i hope so. she's started off not well adjusted, and i don't think giving her a pile of chocolate will do the trick this time.>>30271719agreed
>>30271727Let her hang out with her new boyfriendOr let her zap more bastards, she seems to enjoy that.
>>30271727Relax her Morale is still high, it's 7
Cole's a good girl with extraordinary powers from a very bad place. Maybe she's so used to taking care of herself and being alone that the idea that someone is looking out for her is unsettling.Ease off a little, give her space for a while. She could be the type to retreat from displays of concern and affection.
>>302717271 on 1 sparring and free time.
>>30271727Start looking for a replacement.
>>30271754Her morale is 7 now. 7 is not bad.
>>30271596You just grin and mouth "proud of you". As you turn away, your augmented eyes catch a brief glimpse of Cole blushing, though you're not sure if it's because of what you said, or something involving her prom date.Rin, Rochelle, and Julie were still on stage, so you really couldn't talk to them just yet.>Talk to Jenner>Talk to Falynn>Try to track down the Principal.>Other

We need to tell Cheerleadra that we're not currently hiring new idols, just to rub it in further.
>>30271785>Talk to JennerTell her about what just happened with Cole. Also something about the girls turning you into an overprotective father. God our hair is going to go gray at the speed of light once shit hits the fan.
>>30271785>>Try to track down the Principal.Talk to Faylnn about recruitment after the show please.
>>30271785>>Try to track down the Principal.
Actually I just thought of something. Is Cole still soaked with ice water? If so, how did she have her electric powers back enough to sense and stop us?
>>30271785>>Try to track down the Principal.we can talk about Cole with Jenner after the performance and we can recruit Faylnn after as well.Let's track the principal to make sure nothing else happens

>>30271885Probably she regained a little, and that was enough to trigger the jammer
>>30271928I'm more surprised that she generated a squarewave to jam our frequency.
Rolled 1>>30271785Welp, it looks like it's time for TIEBREAKER!1. Falynn2. Principal(this is not a vote)
>>30271974....dammit.I'm now worried
>>30271986yup now the girl can hide the evidence and get away scott free.
>>30271974You decide to go track down that engineer girl. Thanks to her help, your performance went off pretty smoothly, all things considered. Plus, it looked like she was a prodigy at what she did. You find her hanging out backstage, tinker with random equipment."Hey there, um, Falynn, was it?" You ask."Yep, last I checked!" Falynn grins and nods. "Whatcha need?">Ask her what got her into engineering.>Ask her if she's looking for a job.>Other
>>30271974i am happy with this.
>>30271995>Ask her what got her into engineering.Standard Job interview question.
>>30271995>Ask her if she's looking for a job.RECRUIT HER.
>>30271995>>Ask her what got her into engineering.>>Ask her if she's looking for a job.As an idol of course.
>>30271995>Ask her if she's looking for a job.we can ask about her intrest in engineering later.
>>30271995>Ask her what got her into engineering.>Ask her if she's looking for a job.Why not both?
>>30271995>>Ask her what got her into engineering.
>>30271995>Ask her what got her into engineering.>Ask her if she's looking for a job.>Other"What do you think will happen with the cheerleader now?"
>>30272004no, we need support staff
>>30271995>Ask her if she's looking for a job.
>>30271995>>Ask her what got her into engineering.>>Ask her if she's looking for a job or for a chance to work on machines the KZ-hound.
>>30271995>>Ask her what got her into engineering.>>Ask her if she's looking for a job.Do both
>>30272026I stand by my point of hiring adults with experience and knowledge not teenagers who are smart.(interns are another matter though)
>>30272039I rather not have her as an idol though. we have enough for now. We need support staff though and everyone seems so fixed on Faylnn and seeing she did well with electronics. it will be waste to leave her as an idol
>>30272052why not both?You have to remember we had a similar choice of idol before, but didn't choose it and instead choice the all rounder.
>>30272039To be fair, she's good enough in her field to dick with military-grade tech. She would make a good placeholder at the very least, since we don't have money to hire real professionals for everything right now.Of course, calling someone an "intern" can also be used as a sneaky way of getting them to do work for you while not paying them dick, so there is that.
>>30272074which is why i said i'm open to it, plus having a real engineer and her would do wonders.(her talent with a proper teacher)
Now I wish we talked to Jenner first to run this by her. Hiring her probably is too good to pass up regardless though so>Ask her what got her into engineering.>Ask her if she's looking for a job.
>>30272062She'll have a job of maintaining 3 things, between being an engineer, a fighter, and a singer/dancer.I rather focus on what she's good at.
>>30272097You have a point, like with Mac we should run this by Jenner. Instead of jumping in and trying to hire her, she's not going anywhere
>>30272102This.Every good idol crew needs good roadies, and she already knows how to hardwire stage stuff!
>>30272102>a fighterNope she will be the new rin, we have 3 fighter, but the average group set up is 2 fighters and a performer, we can just make her the performer.(plus she is a nerd)
>>30272114>>30272102why make her into a fighter?She is a classic definition of a geek.
>>30272102I'd rather just sign her up as an engineer and be done with it.
>>30272117I rather get another fighter first then a singer.
>>30272129Then why turn her into a idol?having her as an engineer is better>>30272117Engineering is good for operations where requires fighting
>>30272131from the tombs?(i want the 1 armed girl)
>>30272129>why make her into a fighter?That's what roadies do.Stagehand/engineer, not idol or fighter like everyone else i ssaying.need to get her on board first tho>>30271596>suddenly your Harbinger connection with her is cut.HOLY SHIT. Just noticed this:I thought harbingers were undetectable and unjammable?
>>30272141because its a waste not to use her as an idol and we had a prospect that was like her before.Also how will engineering transfer into fighting exactly?
>>30272131>I rather get another fighter first then a singer.But we have plenty of fighters.Idol business, not merc business.
>>30272155> Allows Cole to jam any and all wireless communications within a fifty meter radiusCole is just that good.
>>30272155she controls electricity, so of course she would notice it.I want her to be an intern for a REAL engineer we hire and maybe be an idol as well(the last point can be argued)
>>30272156Who?Julie, Rochelle, and Cole are mainly fighters.Falynn is better for devloping equipment, not singing songs.
>>30272155Just what THE HELL is Cole?Her powers are evolving, whether or not she controls it is another issue.
>>30271995>Ask her what got her into engineering.>Ask her if she's looking for a job.
>>30272155>I thought harbingers were undetectable and unjammable?Biribiri cares not for your puny technological achievements.
>>30272168We need two fighters for every one singer.We have three fighters.
>>30272176cole and rochelle didn't know how to sing and dance, but low and behold after 1-2 months they are singing and dancing.You can't use that argument since we have two prime examples of it being possible.
>>30272189Does K-Zwolf count?
>>30272177Her powers do what ever it is she needs at the moment.
>>30272189Where'd you get that metric?We don't need fighters. We need to build our base and business up so we can get ~good~ contracts.
>>30272191But why should we place Faylnn as an idol?We don't need more idols. We need more support staff. That's what I don't understand?
>>30272193He is a support for one of the combat idols.
>>30272201Jenner said it back when she was explaining the buisness
>>30272203people are just going 'herp derp hire in all spots not where they're good'
A bit off topic, but who do you think would win in a fight: Carol from MGHQ or Cole from this Quest?
>>30272203She can be both.What hard to understand about that?
>>30272203we can split the girls up better and do paired performances, plus she can be a boon to our business since it allows us to do multiple jobs better.
>>30272214Depends on if Cole is holding a baby.
>>30272203besides /tg/'s autism flaring up? Odds are she'd gladly work for us for free just as long as she gets to work on KZ-Hound and other things. Just the fact she had an electronic warfare kit made.>>30272214Cole, this quest's readers aren't as stupid.
>>30272203>But why should we place Faylnn as an idol?Its because she is a teen girl. Thats the logic at least. Im all for having her as an intern support staff thingy.
>>30272217So she's going to run our engineering department and be an idol?>>30272218Why her though?If we want a singer we can recruit a person that CAN sing?
>>30272239>going to run our engineering department and be an idolnope be an intern and get a real engineer to teach her.
Again another quest where Fakynn is causing shitstorms
>>30271995>>Ask her what got her into engineering.>>Ask her if she's looking for a job
>>30272239Nothing stopping us from teaching her how to sing and she isn't a professional engineer.
>>30272261True, but we need fighters who can sing to pass off as idols, We don't need support staff to pass of as idols.If we could we wouldn've had Jenner as an idol.
>>30272239she can be made into a singer and she is self taught and so her ability as an engineer would be iffy and it would be better if she interns under a professional.(kind of like she helps us out and we give her internship and a chance to make fun shit)
>>30271995"Well, first things first, where exactly did you learn those engineering skills?" You ask. "I doubt you can get all that from a high school curriculum.""Eh, self taught, mostly." Falynn shrugs. "My dad works as an E-Waste disposal technician for OCP, so he brings back all kinds of crap he's salvaged from the junk heaps. I kinda just learned shit by bolting random stuff together. I even had a working ED-209 I used to keep the cats away until it accidentally shot out my neighbor's window and they called the cops on us.""Wait... what?" You blink."Yeah, those were fun times." Falynn chuckles. "Then Dad's bosses came and repossessed Eddie. I miss that poor lil bugger.""Okay..." You nod. "Anyways, how do you feel about getting a job?""Who the hell doesn't want one?" Falynn laughs. "I'm not even out of high school yet and I'm already getting offers from places like Cyberdyne and Toha Heavy Industries! Good engineers are hard to come by, you know.""Oh, I see..." You frown. "So you wouldn't interested in joining up with a small time idol unit like us?""Whoa, I didn't say that." Falynn frowns. "How about this. I'll join up with you if you promise me a full time position. With my grades, I can petition for early graduation. I just never really had much reason till now.""What? How about all those megacorp offers?""Pffft, they're all intern positions which only pay minimum wage at best. I don't want to be stuck working under some schmuck who can't tell the difference between a transistor and a superconductor!""Hmmmmm...">All right, it's a deal.>Sorry, I can't accept those terms.>Let me think about it.>Other
>>30272284>>All right, it's a deal.
>>30272284>All right, it's a deal.
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.>Consult Jenner then accept
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.Lets see who we can hire for engineer first.
>>30272284>All right, it's a deal.Fuck it let's take a chance
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.>>OtherAsk jenner and check out possible list of people we can get to be an engineer first.(there is a reason they offered her an internship)
>>30272284>Let me think about it."I'll have your answer in a second."
>>30272284>Let me think about it.It's not our call, we need to go by it with Jenner or the Boss first before accepting
>>30272306>assuming it's a good reason and not adults being adults.
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.>I don't want to be stuck working under some schmuck who can't tell the difference between a transistor and a superconductor!"Well why don't we have you working under some on who does then?
>>30272284>>All right, it's a deal.As an engineer. Not idol/engineer.
>>30272284>All right, it's a deal.She doesn't want an internship, knows her stuff, hire her for fuck shake people.
>>30272315Here>>30272284Can we do a counter offer?Saying that she will be an intern, but of some one who actually knows shit?We would need to see the list first.
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.>>Consult Jenner on the costs/etcIf I wasn't concerned about such things, I too would be hiring her on the spot.
>>30272284>All right, it's a deal.Even after paying her a proper wage she'll still probably be cheaper than a good pro with credentials.
>>30272322SHE DOES NOT WANT TO BE AN INTERN. HOW HARD IS THAT TO UNDERSTAND?!
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.>>Otherlets go by jenner first, like we did before.
>>30272284We'll probably have to check with Jenner, but I'd say we hire her.
>>30272284>>Let me think about it.Don't we have to go through the proper channels before accepting anyone?
>>30272327>schmuck who can't tell the difference between a transistor and a superconductor!"She just siad she doesn't want to work under some one who is under her level, but if we hire some one above her level of knowledge then everything is good.
>>30272284>Let me think about it.
>>30272335that's cost more than just hiring her.
>>30272335She also said she doesn't want to be paid minimal wage, she wants an actual bloody job with proper pay. -_- I swear some people these days can't pay attention for shit...
>>30272284>>>All right, it's a deal.
>>30272344We can handle it.>>30272345Who said minimum wage?
>>30272353internship in itself implies that if not less.
>>30272353She did, another example of people not paying attention. Interns get paid barely minimal wage, she wants a real job with real pay. Pay fucking attention.
>>30272353We can't afford to hire two good engineers and we don't need two good engineers before our organization gets bigger.We can hire her alone for more than an internship but less than a fully qualified engineer and that's probably a good deal for the immediate future.
>>30272284>Let me think about it.Only way it would be worth it is if we're having her do field work
>>30272368>>30272361>>30272357ok, but can we atleast consider our options first.
>>30272353> HURR MERC COMMAND COMPLICATEY WORDSSSSSS
>>30272377Dude, it's simple. Hire her with her exceptional skill for cheaper than a professional, or hire someone more expensive for possibly worse skill. I swear some people can't see a fucking good deal for miles, this is a good idea to hire her.
>>30272383I'm all for hiring her but we still need to go through the proper channels
>>30272389Yeah but others are too retarded to see this great deal, or are completely ignorant of anything she says concerning internship and pay. She wants a real job.
>>30272389And yet we have hiring authority.
>>30272383so your disposing a chance of checking out our options first before we even start.>>30272382
>>30272377Our options are the child prodigy, who will be cheaper but probably more eccentric, or a random professional techy that we pull out of the job market hat essentially at random who will probably be pretty reliable, cost a little more, and probably won't come up with anything zany.It's not rocket science. We've got hiring discretion and we've been presented with an attractive gamble on young talent. We can either take it or not, but there isn't any good reason to waffle about.
>>30272400People seem to forget that detail A LOT. We can hire anyone we damn well please.
>>30272383The "professional" we're going to have available is going to be twice as qualified as her.
>>30272405this engineer is gonna come from our mysterious boss, who has given us 3 famed workers.
>>30272412She is a child prodigy with offers from multiple mega-corps. Point out ONE engineer we can hire at the local job market with the same level of qualifications or potential. Exactly you can't.
>>30272415>>30272405Forgot to include that i agreed to your guys claims and would at least like to try and see what our options are in the first place and do a decision based on what we are given.(she might since she has a following, but i would like to see what we are turning down first)
>>30272404I apologize for insulting your otherworldly attention span.I apologize for insulting your otherworldly attention span.I apologize for insulting your otherworldly attention span.I apologize for insulting your otherworldly attention span.I apologize for insulting your otherworldly attention span.
>>30272415>And the boss sends us...Falynn!And no one was surprised.
>>30272412Engineer here, qualifications that aren't a phd mean shitGrade inflation is rampant anyone who doesn't drop out of a bachelor's program will pass and anyone can get a master's if they pay for it.
>>30272284"Hm, let me think about it, first." You say. "This is a pretty big decision." "Sure, whatever." Falynn shrugs. "You know where to find me. Now let's see if I can find that little robot doggie..."You then make our way over to Jenner, who's still keeping an eye on the performance."Ah, Producer. Things are going very well." Jenner says. "Thanks in no small part to you.""Well, that's my job, isn't it?" You chuckle. "Say, what's your opinion on hiring that Falynn girl on as a full time engineer?""Hmmmm." Jenner closes her eyes. "She's still very young. She's not going to have the credentials or experience more established engineers would have, but I can see she's very talented if she can modify our equipment like that, as well as bypass K-Zwolf's IFF functions. Plus, credentials aren't everything. If you want my opinion, I say we recruit her. She won't as for as much as an established engineer, assuming any even want to work with us.""Hmmm...">HIRE FALYNN AS ENGINEER?>Y>N
>>30272435So I'm sure we can all now agree.>Hire. This. Fucking. Kid. It's. A. Good. Deal.
>>30272433why thank you for your informative post.>>30272434A real possibility to be honest, but that would reaffirm her quality above all.
>>30272441>YSo much Y, look at all this Y, here let me give you some Y. YYYYYYYYYYYYY, Y's for everyone.
>>30272441YSure why not, since it looks like we can't check out the other option.
>>30272441YAnd ask her about that dinner we owe her.
>>30272441>YGee, Jenner's reasoning sure seems familiar.
>>30272441Proper channels say we're good.>Y
>>30272467I fucking know right? :/ It only takes the "official" word of Jenner to make all the logic click in their tiny minds. It's like we didn't fucking explain that earlier.
>>30272477i only argued for a reconsideration since i wanted to see what we could get otherwise, plus having a second opinion is always a good idea.
>>30272472Don't you love it when your subordinate agrees with you? Too bad we don't have enough confidence to make any decisions on our own.
>>30272477Meh. It didn't cost us anything and now we have what seems to be unanimous support. Collaborative game ans all.
>>30272485Even though our job description tells us "HIRE PEOPLE IF YOU THINK THEY'RE GOOD.", we don't need our subordinates patting our back saying "Yes Sir, this is a good idea. You're very smart Sir."
>>30272484So why didn't you vote to call the Boss to send us an engineer?
>>30272493Cost us an annoying amount of time.We don't need a second opinion on what is clearly a near-unanimous decision because one or two people refuse to see logic unless it's spoonfed to them by word of god.
>>30272485Indeed, having your subordinate who makes sure we make good decisions is always a good idea.
>>30272497Never crossed my mind and i figured Jenner might have prospects since we had a safety net of money.
>>30272493Actually, it probably cost us a moral point equivalent with her since we weren't that enthusiastic about paying her a professional rate. So I expect she's more likely to quit or get hired out from under us now.
>>30272519your reading way into this, plus she is staff, they don't get MOR points.
>>30272496People have begun to invest in the game and its outcome. Its unfortunate but understandable that some people are nervous about these kind of decisions. It'll all work out in the end,
>>30272519I bet you when we go back to hire her, she's been kidnapped by the Cheerleader girls grunts and we will never see her again.
>>30272503Girl if your time was worth anything you wouldn't be playing quests on /tg/ at 4 in the goddamn morning
>>30272441"Yeah, I don't see any problem hiring her, either." You say. "Well, I guess we're adding another to our happy little family." Jenner grins. "You really know how to snare them in.""I have no idea what you're trying to imply here." You frown."Heh, for such a sharp guy you can be pretty dense sometimes." Jenner smiles. "Say, once this whole Prom thing is over, you want to grab some dinner? I distinctly remember you promising to treat me.">Sure.>Maybe some other time.>Other
>>30272508Hmm, we should give her a pay raise and title bump. Ms. producer has a nice ring I think.
>>30272503Everyone got what they wanted though. Isn't that what matters. Besides it takes awhile for Merc to make posts anyway. it only seems long for the fact we were discussing things.
just got cought up on current thread and those rolls mang them rolls.
>>30272539>SureAnything to forget this fucking argument, I'm still mad at the overly cautious idiots.
>>30272539>>Sureso we can get the annoying fuckers to shit up.
>>30272539>>Sure."Its abit overdue."
>>30272549but den it was like (pic)
>>30272553>>30272558oh just kiss him already
>>30272539>>Sure.Delicious Christmas Cake is something we can all agree to...
>>30272539>Sure.we did well tonight.
>>30272546We don't need to go running to Jenner only to have her literally parrot back our already fully developed reasoning on every obvious decision. I'm already noticing this pattern and it's going to get progressively more annoying as time goes on because people just can't accept logic unless it's gifted to them from on high by the fucking archangel Gabriel himself. What's the point in Producer having decision making power if he has to run to Jenner for every damn thing?
>>30272597This. This so very much. This is why I'm so angry at the people wanting to check everything with Jenner. We're the fucking PRODUCER not her, we make the god damn decisions, we don't need her to validate our existence and every decision dammit.
>>30272612Take a walk dude damn
>>30272597i think people were more worried about wether or not we had the income to hire her. fuckin dick
>>30272612bectha the very next thread people will ask jenner what to eat once we go have the dinner with her.
>>30272630the better question is can we hire 1 more person.
>>30272630Actually they wanted to hire her as an intern, then hire a shitty engineer to be her teacher, even though she's already amazing. Which would of cost us MORE money.>>30272632I fucking know right? Can't think for themselves.
>>30272639i dont recall seeing anything about that in in of the QMs posts.
>>30272639That was one guy.There was also one guy who voted 1 on Merc's coin toss that was explicitly not a vote.There will always be one dumb guy.The eventual decision was unanimous and prior to that it was heavily favored, take a chill
>>30272647It was during the discussion. Please stop proving me right on how nobody pays attention to ANYTHING in this thread.
>>30272539"Sure, that sounds great." You nod. "Just uh, don't choose a place that's too expensive, all right?""I'll keep that in mind." Jenner nods and smiles.With that, you head back to Falynn and tell her the good news. She just gets the biggest smile and your face and bear hugs you."Thankyouthankyouthankyou!" She squeals. "I promise I'll build the biggest and meanest killbot every crafted in the history of mankind! When I uh, get the right parts, of course.""I'm sure you will." You chuckle, ignoring the fact that your suit now had some fresh grease stains on it now. "I'll be expecting you to do your best.""You can count on me, Producer!" Falynn nods.Finally, the song ends, to the applause of the audience."Thank you, everybody!" Rin says, still holding the microphone. "You've all been such a great audience! Please have a wonderful night!"However, she's interrupted by a loud shout."Encore!"And suddenly, it gets louder and louder as everybody starts yelling it."ENCORE ENCORE ENCORE!"Jenner and you Idols all look to you for guidance.>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.>I think we've done enough for today.>Other
>>30272657i mainly go by what the QM posts as the final disishion because as >>30272652 said people are retarded.
>>30272672>>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.
>>30272672>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.We gotta do this, for the fans!
>>30272672>I think we've done enough for today.Still feeling super suspicious about Cheerleader bitch.
>>30272672>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.>OtherCheck the pigs blood.
>>30272672> killbot The girl's alright!
Rolled 4, 6 = 10>>30272672>>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.
>>30272672>>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.One more song.Preferably something slow, don't overstress the girls.
>>302726725 minute break then>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.
>>30272672>>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.Do it!! What the crowd demands, the crowd gets. Except freebird. No one ever seems to indulge that one.
>>30272672>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.Get out there and dance Producer-san!
Rolled 4, 5 = 9>>30272672also maybe send cole in to join? after asking if shes up to it. just a suggestion
>>30272701>Get out there and dance Producer-san!FFS no, we don't want to scare them for life.
>>30272672>Is there any other alternative? HIT IT.I mean... duh.If we don't do this everyone will be disappointed, and we'll get a bad reputation.
>>30272672>Otherdispose of the damn bucket of pigs blood!
>>30272708Producer is the #4 break dance in the world. He would AWE them, I say! AWE them!
Rolled 14Prepare dem dice.
>>30272672>Jenner and you Idols all look to you for guidance.Cole and Electricity.Now is the time! the time to dance and shine and spark some romance at prom!
>>30272737More like make their eyes bleed.
>>30272672>HIT ITAll four idols
Rolled 15>>30272749we will roll a nat 20 and will keep that 20.
>>30272750>All four idolsKey fucking point!We've won the troll-off with whatserbutt, nothing to keep em all off stage.
>>30272714The alternative is to leave them wanting more but we lack the coolness to do so.
>>30272741https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLuPNThw0REFor reference.Have all four idols improv-spin it into something sparky and prom-ey romantic. Bring the lights down and everythign.
>>30272767If anything we still have our robot
>>30272672>>OtherQuestion, merc.Regarding star power - if we have 3 points, and 3 idols on stage, can we use on point for -each- girl for an effect better than +1/+2?
>>30272672"Well, why not? HIT IT." You say.With that, the music begins to start up again. You see Cole finally break off from Kaneda as she dashes to the stage and takes position. Now all four idols were on stage. There's a slight crackle and pop as your Harbinger connection was reestablished with her."Have a fun time?" You ask."Heh, I guess." Cole responds simply.And then the music starts.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b93TIbWS98MAnd the crowd's cheers grow even louder.>The performance was a huge success! All Idols' APP has increased by 1!>In addition, all idols' Singing and Dancing skills have increased by 1!>Cole's battle with the football team has gone viral! Cole's APP has increased by 1!>Cole's Melee skill has increased by 1!>And that's it for tonight! This seems like a natural end point, so we're ending a little earlier than usual. Come back next week for the next thread! Don't forget Magical Girl Hunter on Sunday, and PJ Witches on Friday!>Since we've ended a little earlier than usual, I'll also be fielding questions if you've got any. I'll answer to the best of my ability!
So what should we say to Cole about our "protectiveness" when the issue comes up?
Just to preempt:Rin: str (for better endurance for performances)Rochelle: agi Julie: agi (hher str is already 4)Cole: int (for more powers)
>>30272833Is there a better form of moe than delinquent moe?
Rolled 8>>30272833Do we have enough money to hire a second person?
>>30272833>Rin supposed to be our main idol>Cole getting all the fansMaybe we should teach Rin how to punch people.
>>30272833Are we gonna get more complicated missions?I liked the multistage planning and how we failed to see the Jock's pig blood plan.
>>30272833How did the standings here in this sector change?
Rolled 1, 6 = 7>>30272833im just curiuse how did you react when you realized you got to write 2 double 1 crit fails and 1 double 20 crit success?
>>30272833Can the Producer learn skills?
>>30272833Jesus, Cole is turning into a monster. Murderhobo biribiri stronk I guess.
Rolled 2>>30272889And people wanted to abandoned her and bitched like crazy for 2-3 threads.
>>30272850If there is I don't know it.
>>30272899Honestly at that time we knew no better.
>>30272833I had a feeling we will end early. still a little sad about it.Though I'm hesitant to see Strike Witches go on Hiatus, I'll be happy to see more Cyberidol take it's place
>>30272855If you're willing pay more upkeep!>>30272859Rin will appeal more to the normals.>>30272862Possibly!>>30272865Oh right! I forgot! You're up to 10%>>30272874Highly amused.>>30272885He already knows a bunch!
>>30272912Thing is we mighg not.Merc has been getting urges to run MORE quests.Kek.
Rolled 5>>30272920whats the current upkeep?INFIRMARY: This is where your Idols are sent to recuperate from injuries.Status: UNMANNED - There is only an automated medicine dispenser that can only perform the most basic of medical procedures. MOTOR POOL: This is where your vehicles are kept.Status: UNMANNED - You have no assigned driver for your vehicles.Current Vehicles: Passenger VanVehicle Limit: 2 DATA CENTER: This is where you can scan the net to guage general opinion of your idols and possibly hack into rivals' networks to sabotage them.Status: UNMANNED - There is only a basic AI algorithm keeping an eye on media reports. ACCOUNTING: This is where all of your finances are calculated, tracked, and handled.Status: UMANNED - There is only a basic AI algorithm handling your financial affairs.
>>30272920Who will Rochelle Appeal to the nerds?
>>30272946/k/ and /pol/
>>30272889But then again, how many "normal" people are fans?
>>30272950Man fuck normals we could get the tombs and the prison and overthrow society
>>30272920I have a feeling that the next thread will be a cooldown thread of Producer having dinner and maybe discussing about future plans.I really, really, hope that the Kaneda thing won't bite us in the ass.Will we keep the siege equipment?
>>30272974Julie is our makoto.She will attract ALL THE GIRLS
>>30272843Tell her that we're concerned for her while she's on the job - its not that we're trying to invader her personal space and life(now that she has it), its more that we want to.... make sure she's alright in society, now that she's had a chance to experience it.
>>30272950At some point it'll probably reach critical mass and become a fad amongst the normals if things keep up. Normal people like all sorts of weird shit, they just tend to cycle between different things as they become "cool".In any case, Rin will always be popular amongst the normal crowd. She's our reliable anchor in polite society.
>>30272920Will we see the Gun Run mission again?
>>30273029it was implied we'd be able to help with it, but the things going on might have progressed behind the scenes a bit
>>30273089Well considering we manage to get a couple of upgrades for Cole, it might be useful.
>>30273104We need to give our other idols some love n upgrades and stuff.Like, superpowers or something, so they're more interesting.Joking, but the others could use their time in the spotlight too
>>30273131This is true, Rochelle managed to gain a couple of fans. Poor Julie and her Justice and Rin still haven't gained much of a following from this. Maybe the Gun Run might change that.
>>30273145Gun run might be nice for Julie, Rin not so much.I think Rin is pretty much going to be slow and steady gains until we do more high-class gigs where her performance skills will stand out more. So far the crowds we've been performing for have seem just as interested in the violence as the singing, maybe more so.
Any idea how our new engineer is going to respond to our idols?Also to do list fo next thread:Dinner with JennerCheck on idols post gigTease Cole with said idolsCheck on FaylnnPlan new gig.Am I missing something?
>>30273188>Tease Cole with said idolsTease all the girls. Read aloud a selection of their fan mail.
>>30273184True, she appeals to the normal crowd.Depending on the difficulty of the Gun Run and other choices, I want to upgrade the arsenal.All we have are pistols, nightsticks, and that rifle for Rochelle
>>30273259Only ones I see fanmail is Rochelle and Cole.
>>30273184>I think Rin is pretty much going to be slow and steady gains until we do more high-class gigs where her performance skills will stand out more. So far the crowds we've been performing for have seem just as interested in the violence as the singing, maybe more so.Rin is going to be our secret weapon TBH. Improvise is just so good>appeal 3, singing 3, dancing 3 (after statgains this thread), and the ability to not just reroll, but do it and take the BEST result of the lot.She's the hammer we use to blow away our opposition at the moment of their greatest strength, and we should focus on making her idol skills top notch - shoot for that idol dream of that one big, crucial, perfect performance and make her excel at nailing those.She could use some strength, though.
>>30273259With Falynn on staff I'm sure she'll figure out new upgrades for things.
>>30273188I have this funny feeling she's going to clash with Cole a bit. Cole's personality and apparent defiance of scientific common sense might hurt Fal's engineer brain.I can't wait for the sparks when Cole walks in to a room where Fal is working on some highly sensitive electrical doohickey and accidentally fries it or something.
>>30273283>I can't wait for the sparks when Cole walks in to a room where Fal is working on some highly sensitive electrical doohickey and accidentally fries it or somethinThing is....... that'd only be the start of Fal trying to engineer things WITH cole's powers."Wait, you can do what? Its time to apply SCIENCE!"
>>30273283Nah, I have a feeling that Cole may be subject to certain experiments and in turn Faylnn will suffer equipment loss like you said.Rin will be more friendly/luke warm.Rochelle and Faylnn will give bullyrubs to the K-9Julie will make crazy demands in enact JUSTICE, like give her a redsuit and to be able to transform. But will not understand the scientific process of doing so,
>>30273319And then it becomes reversed"COLE, ITS SCIENCE TIME!""NO FALYNN NO!"
>>30273319They will enact the time machine from back to the future. Faylnn: COLE use your lightening to strike the clock towerCole: Fuck you!Faylnn: You won't get your corn dogs if you don't.Cole: ....
>>30273348I think i can safely say, the result of any such tinkering will be.... Shocking
So... just curious, but how are we going to react if a few months down the line Fal storms into our office and informs us that Cole is in fact, as far as modern science is concerned, just fucking magic?
>>30272920What section was the high school in?
One thing I gotta say merc, regarding >>30273131>TRAITS are essentially abilities unique to particular Idols.I think you need to figure out a skill/trait tree the other idols can get.Because that's why cole is so good and people are interested in her - she doesn't have a trait.She cheats the system and has a tree of traits instead of just 1.The others could use some fleshing out in the same nature.I think Stay Frosty, for example, is the weakest of the lot - depending on how the +1 works. If it can bump a 19 to a 20, and thus a crit, its actually kinda nice.
>>30273367As smooth as Greased Lightning.
>>30273411I think he does have a system, it's just that their more combat related and only Cole has been fighting the past two to three threads.
>>30273402IT JUST WORKS has been good enough for us so far, I don't think it would garner any particular reaction at this point.
>>30273429Depending on the origin of magic.Then we will tease Nicole of being a magic battery
>>30273402>So... just curious, but how are we going to react if a few months down the line Fal storms into our office and informs us that Cole is in fact, as far as modern science is concerned, just fucking magic?Time for you to become a wizard, dear!

Nobody. Also more MikiMiki, but you don't exactly have to search hard for Idols wanting to emulate that style.
