Morning comes too soon.

Pulling the pillow off of your head, the alarm blares loudly as you squint in the morning light.You.. Don’t like the light. You feel weaker, hungry.

Always hungry.

But, that’s no point in sitting around, doing nothing. You should get dres- you look down to see that you seem to be dressed now, in a normal looking attire- the faintest hints of black ooze turning into a blue shirt. It’s the day after Christmas, so that means you don’t have school until after the new year resumes.

A part of you, like a second brain, just wants to close the curtains and sleep until night, upon which you should go eat. You try to ignore it.

>What are your plans?
>>
Rolled 11

>>30488782

Get up.

Actually Dress into normal clothes. It's not good to always rely on the suit, it might just eat all our stuff.

Then go get breakfast. Cereal. Lots of cereal.
>>
>>30488782
>Priority #1: Get in contact with Sue
>Might as well start rebuilding our webshooters in the meantime, oh and talk with Stella about making a costume for her.
>>
>>30488782
Call the Storms, see if we can talk with Sue.
>>
>>30488782
Check our cell phone, see if we missed any calls from Felicia.

Also wake Stella up as well?

We should probably think up a lie to stay here for a while, considering I really don't want to be around Aunt May and Uncle Ben until we get this sorted out.

I don't think we can get in contact with Sue since she didn't pick up her phone. Maybe we should just check the news to see what the deal with the Storms are, since they just gave an interview yesterday?

>>30488782
1. Consume Cheerios
2. Call Felicia
3. Call Sue
>>
>>30488782
Check on our sister first.

Then try and make some breakfast.

Also we should consider paying Dr. Spyral another visit, if the Fantastic Four aren't an option.
>>
>>30488897
Calling them is worth a shot. I'll second watching the news though.

Can we impress upon the Symbiote to tone down its hunger a little?

Also try to get an impression of what would satisfy it a bit more.
>>
>>30488978
I'm pretty sure this isn't the reasonable space symbiote.

This is the ultimate jackass version our dad and Norman Osborn fucked up.

Remember the last time we ate, we just made things worse.

Lets try and meet up with Sue and or Osborn and get this thing off us ASAP.
>>
>>30488782
1. Find a way to shut the symbiote up
2. Try to contact Felicia
3. Find replacements for the things you lost when you bonded with the suit
>>
>>30489052
I think Spyral is our best bet.
>>
>>30489052

We're still going to need to eat.

I get the feeling if we let the hunger level go to far up, we'll be more likely to go berserk.
>>
I think we should add "Confront Norman Osborne" to our list of things to do.

"What the hell is this thing and how to I get it off?!"
>>
>>30489070
That or the suit will start trying to eat us. If this is like the canon Ultimate Symbiote, it eats "Life Energy."
>>
>>30489089
Ult. Carnage did, Ult. Venom literally ate people
>>
>>30489086
Norman doesn't know shit about shit.

If he did, do you think he would have kept his wife on ice for a decade?
>>
>>30489113
We can still get info on it though. Where he got it, what experiments they did on it, etc.
>>
>>30489138
It's a waste of time. It's better spend decoding our dad's hard drive some more.
>>
>>30489138
Assuming Osborn would even talk to us. Remember he said 'this is all i can do' when he kept security from finding us as we left.
>>
>>30489168

I still think that it's been tampered with.

>>30489181

At the time. He was still in on the experiments.
>>
>>30489196
It has been, but we can still find the truth.
>>
>>30489215
It's over Moulder. Just let it go.
>>
>>30488928
Agreed on the calling. Calling Felicia and Sue should be our priorities, and after that we need to figure out exactly WHAT the suit hungers for.
>>
>So, the three confirmed are

>1. Call Sue Storm
>2.Call Felicia
>3. Get something to eat

There was some interest in Osborn, so I'll bring that up as an option after these

Can we watch the news as we eat?

>>30489394

>>30489435
It's not a number count. We're doing all of those.

>>30489394

>>
>>30489394
>>30489421
Yes to all three and news while consuming.
>>
>>30489394
Disregard Felicia. I don't think she needs something on big on her plate if she's out of contact for a reason.
>>
>>30489532
Checking up on her is something a good boyfriend should do, especially when she's acting strange and there's a half-burned note in her house. We don't have to tell her about the Suit yet. We just need to let her know what whatever it is that she's doing, she can trust us and know that we're here for her if and when she needs us.
>>
>>30489394
sounds good.
also try to catch the news while eating.

And make it a light meal.
>>
>>30489421
this
>>
>>30489564
That's fair, but if we show up in person that'd be no bueno I should think. Especially if this suit might try to influence our more primal urges.
>>
>>30489616
We're in her house right now and have no idea where she is.

OOC we know she was investigating Kingpin and some Jojo mobsters. So things might not be going well for her.
>>
>>30489616
Why would you ever resist your primal urges *wink wink*. Also, going for calling Sue. She IS a biologist after all
>>
>>30489670

We don't know where she is. We couldn't do that even if we wanted to, and regardless, unless the symbiote is going to make us wear our hair like a douchebag and dance badly at clubs, I'm not concerned about "primal urges".

>>30489670
We're not in her house, we left for home.
>>
>>30489670
Uh no. We're in our house.

>>30489713
>>30489705
Wait shit we did?

Why the fuck would we do something that irresponsible, considering that Venom might hunger for old people.
>>
>>30489763
because people didn't want to tell Gwen who Felicia is, even though Felicia knows who Gwen is.
>>
>>30489778

That honestly is felicia's to reveal.
>>
>>30489763
Peter doesn't know WHAT the Suit is hungry for. We went to Felicia's to check on her after the Xmen fiasco, then we went home to watch movies, then to the park with Stella, thento Oscorp, then back home.
>>
>>30489778
I know about that, but I guess I just thought we went there anyway, since that was the sane thing to do.
>>
Calling up Felicia’s number, you are sent to her voicemail. After the beep, you leave her a message that your other phone, along with costume was destroyed and a lot of bad things were happening, so if she could spare a moment to call you back, that’s be great.

Calling Sue Storm’s number, along with Johnny’s, all you get is immediate notice that their number is currently unavailable and that their voicemails have been disabled.

More than slightly worried, you grab a bowl, box of cereal and some milk as you head down to the basement and try to get some news. Your clothes are still suit-ooze because when you tried to put on another shirt, it ate it.

Flipping through the news, it seems like Johnny and Sue are fine, they’re apparently doing some talks with Reed Richards and Ben Grimm later today on live television, especially concerning the whole ‘superpowers are real’ thing. Which is, while good for them, bad for you. The military is likely to be crawling around them now.

Maybe Doctor Spyral? Regardless, the idea of people with superpowers has an interesting reaction from both political and scientific groups. There was a note about a fire that destroyed the R&D wing of Oscorp, but it seems like nobody was harmed. Seems like they covered up the break in.

Finishing up the box of cereal, you find yourself still hungry.

Is there a way to like, try to understand exactly what the suit hungers for? We know on a meta-level that it needs life energy to sustain itself, but Peter needs to know somehow. The Suit's urges should be at least perceptible to Peter, since it needs him in order to get it.
>>
>>30489886
I don't really think she liked the Dokter in the future.
>>
>>30489843
>[ ] Look into Norman Osborn
>[ ] Work on a project
Let's see how difficult it would be to get in discreet contact with Osborn. If that looks to be too difficult, let's work on rebuilding our web shooters.
>>
>>30489914

We still need someone to research into the suit
>>
>>30489843
>Look at the hard drive
If Osborn knew how to remove or even placate Venom, then he wouldn't have kept it and whoever it was stuck to in a frozen coma.

Get it together Wrenloft.
>>
>>30489886
It's not her area of expertise, but she probably would be interested in it.

Although I'm picturing a Franken Fran scenario if we trusted her to fix us... I shudder to think about it.
>>
>>30489886
this

>>30489843
Lets look into Norman Osborn right now. I think we should go by Felicia's later and use our detective skills to figure out what's happened to her.

Osborne wouldn't know, but our dad would.

>>30489952
We just saved his wife, for gods' sake. He owes us AT LEAST a lead.
>>
>>30489957
We tried that last thread, and unfortunately Doom is still in Latveria.
>>
>>30489974
Yeah our dad would, which is why we should decode more of the hard drive instead of wasting time with Norm.
>>
>>30489974
He said he didn't know anything I thought?
>>
>>30489975

The embassy was closed for the night.

There might still be staff around who can help us get in touch with Doctor Doom.
>>
>>30489975
In that case just look into the hard drive
>>
>>30489997
He doesn't, but he would know where we might be able to find out. He's got connections.
>>30490010
Preeeeetty sure the staff won't recognize the new duds, bro.
>>
Hey; here's a thought... try and contact Stark.
>>
>>30490044
He's in California and doesn't know us, how will this help?
>>
>>30490044
We can always pull out the 'ol Yellow Pages and look under "Scientist" and see who comes up.
>>
>>30490040

Preeety sure the staff will recognise a smartass web-slinger with a spider on the chest
>>
>>30490044
A) We don't know him in any personal manner.
B) He's an engineer, not a biologist.
C) He's on the other side of the country.
>>
>>30490040
Here's a thought; maybe adopt a new moniker for the time being and change our style and movement a little. "The Black Tarantula".

>>30490064
Doc Connors?

>>30490044
"Hello? Mr. Stark? I have a living organism that was an attempt at a cure for cancer fused with my skin and I'm trying to find a way to remove it- Hello? Hello? He hung up."
"Did you tell him you weren't a crackpot?"
"Hello? Mr. Stark? Me again. I'm not a crackpot."
>>
>>30490044
Why? He's an engineer, not a scientist.

>>30490040
>>30490070
I'd really rather not cause an international incident

>>30490036
That's what I've been saying. We have the best lead already, we just need to see past the tampering.
>>
>>30490086
No, Spider-Man is known to wear new suits every now and then. People will know.

>>30490105
Yeah, harddrive would be our best bet for sure. Now that we're not in timeskip mode we can roll to discover new things in a few hours.
>>
>>30490094
Hank Pym, SCIENTIST! for hire.

>an international incident

We've already caused one, whats another.

Besides, this is a personal matter. It's not like SHIELD will suddenly step in just because Spiderman stepped onto embassy grounds. Again.

Secondly, I'm thinking we could see if the symbiote can glide, and have Dusk make his debut.

People will still know it's just Spider Man in a new costume from our voice, unless we do a Batman style stage voice. I suddenly want this to happen

Tony Starks problem solving method boils down to:

Too bad he isn't famous yet. Though since Peter's a huge science nerd, he'd keep up-to-date on all the up and coming discoveries and such.

Which is exactly why he'd be in the Yellow Pages, with a cheesy advert too, probably.

The information is literally there on the harddrive. If Norman knew enough about the symbiote to get it off his wife, he'd have done it by now. Norman has never seen the extent of our dad's work, and also there's no practical way to get to Norman. He's a big corporate CEO and besides Harry currently hates us.

>>
>>30490324

Actually, meeting the doc first is more efficient.

We can meet her, pass her a sample to work on. We can THEN go look at yhe harddisk.

Because Dad's stuff included another symbiote, his work may have been on the more beign one instead of the one we're wearing currently.

Locking up the basement, you make sure your hands are cleans before you start to fiddle with the hard drive. Except you feel distinctly uncomfortable while you do so, for some reason. Eventually, you get it all put together properly and start up the hard drive, as you look for all traces of your father’s work on the suit.

not

with out

If we can alter it so we can sustain it without it needing to eat life energy, we may even be able to keep it.
Until we need to give it to Eddie to cure his cancer, of course.

>>30490857
I'd rather have Pure Waifu, but at least it has a good home with Flash.

Our suit is the one designed to cure cancer, which is the thing Eddie has.

You sit down and start searching for notes, details, ANYTHING you can find on the suit. For the most part, it’s little more than what you’ve already seen. Just digital copies of his notes on the process of early parts of the suit- they’d be useful if you actually understood how all of this worked.

And then you find one last file, all but deleted as you work on restoring it. A video- it seems set around the same time as the last one you saw from your father, perhaps.

He’s sitting alone as he shakes his head. “I met up with Norman, I found a way to destroy the suit, like we both wanted. That thing’s all but destroyed our lives, but I couldn’t tell him. Not with what I saw Emily do to herself to try to save this project. The way I have to destroy the suit would kill any normal person who has it on them.”

Your father looks horrified.

“We’ve gotten her cryogenically frozen for the time being. But, the way I found to destroy that thing would kill her, so Norman and I have decided to put all of our efforts into saving her. I’ve called Ben to come over and watch Peter for the time being, until we’re done. This project’s ruined my marriage, my friendship with Carl, but I’m not letting it take Emily’s life, too.”

Richard Parker sits as he looks at the camera. “Peter, if you’re watching this, then something terrible has happened to me and you’re staying with Ben and May in our old house, like my will states. Your mother won’t get custody of you, I’ve already seen to that. Not after…”

He holds up some files, revealing the briefcase from earlier. “That means you’ve already found this. Don’t touch the security measures I’ve put into it, they’ll ruin the files for sure. And Peter, I have one last thing to ask of you.”

Your father leans in, smiling sadly. “If you find any part of my cursed project, please destroy it. Don’t let anyone else suffer from this monster we‘ve bottled. You need a lot of electricity to destroy it, if my math’s right. Unlike Frankenstein whose monster was born of lighting., my monster’s life ends with it.”

The date on the video is the day before your father's death.

>SP spend, DC met

You’re not sure how to deal with this, but you keep a lid on your emotions. There’s a lot in that video and you’re not entirely sure how to deal with it. And trying to deal with it, here and now is not a good idea.

Not at all.

But, you know of a solution, if you desperately need one.

Unhooking and hiding the hard drive again, you keep yourself focused. You need to do something, get you mind off of things.

3: Other than food what the hell does he want? What's his goal?
4: Does he have a personality or his he just pure instinct?

Now that we have the Suit, we can fight crime on the fly, as putting on the costume is now instantaneous. So the options might even be one and the same.

We don't know, BUT I can answer for the symbiote this seems to be based off of (Take with grain of salt):
1) The suit is based off of damaged DNA and needs to eat to repair the continuous damage it has.
2) Not really. It always wants to feed.
3) It's not sentient.
3) Instinct.

More pertinent question.
What, precisely, does it need to eat to survive?
Because... well, Pete's kind of a genius. He's on good terms with DOOM and Sue Storm. He's making inroads with Osborn and herr Doktor. New York is crawling with superscientists, and if it comes down to it we can go back to looking for Dr Strange for the supermagic even DOOM doesn't quite grasp... yet.

You should go for a walk. Clear your head. It’s the best thing to do- keep a clear head and keep calm.

Heading upstairs, you look around for Stella and find her in her room. Knocking, you can hear her get up and unlock the door- when she see’s its you, she looks at you passively.

“Hey, I was going to go for a walk. You want to come along?”

There’s a pause before she eventually nods. “Sure. Give me a minute.”

A few moments later, the two of you are walking down the street as Stella gives you an appraising stare like she wants to talk.

Shit I just thought that if venom needs bio-electricity impulses from brain to live, what if peter try's to make a way to recreate the these impulses with batteries or something (if the theory that brain have enough power to light up light-bulb is truth I guess to AA batteries should be enough for a hour )

You give her a nod as the two of you find somewhere out of the way to talk- the park nearby is filled with kids, so the two of you walk until you find a small, quiet isolated area and sit on a bench.

Sitting down, Stella looks over at you. “Have you managed to find out anything?”

You tell her what you managed to learn of the suit and what your father’s cure was. Stella nods her head sadly. “…I feared as much. From what I know, CARNAGE was weak to electricity once, too. I’m not sure if it overcame it or its choice of a host, but it adapted and changed. Your father’s suit was probably what was the basis of that monster.”

She glances over at you before resting her hand on yours. You feel disgusted as you can feel it urging you on to devour, consume. Always hungry.

“I… can’t stop it, not without hurting or killing you, Peter. That means I literally can’t do anything- I’ll become helpless if I try to hurt it because doing so would harm you.”

She looks away as her hand tightens on yours, shaking. “…I could take it. I’m tougher, I might survive its destruction, Peter. And if you don’t survive…”

She’s cut off as you hear screams in the distance and see a large, armored SUV clip a corner and almost hit people as it swerves down the road, pursued by cops. You feel a hand push you as Stella gives you a sad smile. “It can wait. People need you help.”

>>
>>30493382
That's why we have science done to it first.

Or rather, give one vial to Sue/Reed, and the other to DOOM, and have them race to be the first person to cure cancer.

There is absolutely no way that could ever go wrong ever.
>>
>>30493308
I think those vials were of the earlier, un-weaponized version of the suit. We need to get those samples to doctor Storm and Doctor VonDoom. If they can compare the originals to our current state, they could determine exactly what Osborn (and our father) did to destabilize the suit to make it so aggressive. If they can reverse it, or make it more efficient and less dangerous, we could turn this around.
>>
>>30493437
I think the REAL original is the thing that's been following Flash around, and that our dad STILL didn't want us knowing about even with this final message.
>>
>>30493451
I mean seriously he just told us specifically not to mess with it, so he definitely didn't want us knowing he was keeping an alien in a plastic bag.

616 Venom, yeah. It's a mutant for its species, it cares for its host. And its first human host was Peter and it fell in love with him (And really, who could blame it?). Peter was (understandably) freaked out by an alien parasite attaching itself to his body and dumped it like a sack of potatoes. Everything Venom has been doing since then has revolved around trying and failing to get over being dumped.

You squeeze her hand back as you give her a smile. “Yeah, I guess they do need our help, huh?”

Stella stares at you surprised before a soft smile spreads across her face as she lets you pull her up. “Yeah, I suppose so.”

The two of you run out of sight and into an alley as you feel the suit act- forming the Black Spider-man outfit as you extend a tendril with a thought as the two of you are on a rooftop. Stella looks over at you before looking down- the car’s still a distance away, but it seems like they have the sunroof open as you notice a masked man raise his head and fire before ducking back in.

Stella looks at you. “I could take out a tire, but civilians could be hurt. What do you want to do?”

Looking around- even though most are out of the way, it’s not impossible. The armored SUV is heading down the road in your direction, it’ll be a matter of moments before they pass by.

drop in from the sunroof, both of you. Stella takes the ones in the back of the SUV, we take the ones in the front and stop it.

Hm. Landing on it probably wouldn't help, and trying to shoulder tackle it seems liable to cause an explosion.
>>
>>30493536
Hmm, maybe have Stella put an illusion on the people inside the car to make them think they're blind long enough for us to get onto the car and pummel them into submission, without hurting any innocents of course.
>>
>>30493536
"Can you make an illusion that will get them to stop? If so, do that, I'll drop down and start pulling them out of the van."
>>
>>30493536
Ask if she can make an illusion of like... a bus pulling up and blocking their escape?

Could make them slam the brakes.
>>
>>30493612
>>30493610
Or maybe make them think the road ahead is filled with potholes or something.
>>
>>30493536
Stella goes in through the sunroof and takes out the gunman.

Peter takes the driver's side door off the hinges, remove the driver from the seat (safely webbed to a lamp post?), hit the breaks.
>>

Yeah I like something like this. Maybe a big vehicle like a garbage truck or a wall blocking their way.
>>30493576
Then a web barrier if it gets too close to an people or other cars to snatch the SUV.
Then we can drop down on it when the vehicle has stopped.
>>
>>30493686
Pretty sure it's some kind of synthetic fiber made by the suit and not the suit itself. Kind of like a shedding of dead skin. That's my theory, anyway.
>>
>>30493686
You don't have 'webbing' per say, more like Tendrils that emulate webbing. So faw, when you've webslinged around in it, its all retracted back in.

As they put on the breaks when confronted with the illusion, how about we web up their front screen with black stuff so they won't be able to see anymore, and then they'll get out of the car knowing driving blind would do them no good.

That sound alright?

Tell her to make an illusion of everyone in the car on fire. It doesn't need to be tactile, the panic of seeing the fire should be enough to panic them. They stop, jump out, and we pounce on them and tie them up while they try to stop-drop-and-roll.

Fire is one of the easiest and most primal fear-motivators. That and spiders. If she doesn't want to do fire she can do spiders. Millions of (illusory) brown recluses should be enough to panic and distract the gunmen.
>>
>>30493793
No, don't do that. They'll just jump out of the moving van fearing for their lives without hitting the breaks. This will cause the van to careen forward and possibly hit someone. Bad move.
>>
>>30493808
So garbage truck then spiders?

>>30493789
That would makes sense, I think that would work.

Cosgrove already said it makes tentacles of itself then retracts them as needed, like Stella's chains. No webbing.

>>30493773
>>
>>30493833
The monorail technique won't work since there are guys with guns in the car who will shoot us in the back of the head.

We've got to cast an illusion, possibly on all sides of them so they can't turn to the right or left.
Then we need to rip off the doors with our tentacles and pull them out.
>>
>>30493927
If you read previous thread Cos said that Venom eat it, and making new ones would take some time which Peter don't have because symbiote is chewing on his brain-power.

>Automatic Failure. Parker Luck increases

Looking at Stella, you nod over at her. “Make an illusion to stop them, I’ll jump in and take them down.”

Stella gives you an uncertain look but eventually nods as you watch the car screech to a halt, but you’re already in motion- down into the sunroof, as you land on the floor of the spacious armored SUV. A masked man looks surprised as he raised his gun.

“Looks like a spider fell into our vehicle. Let’s squash it.”

As they let fire into you. It hurts- as four Uzis let loose into at short range into your body. It hurts badly as you feel the suit react, trying to patch you up.

hurts hunger

You feel it impose its hunger upon you.

No. Oh, god. No.

Please, no.

Hurts. Hunger.

You hold at your chest as you try to suppress it. No. No.nonononononononono. You hear the man lean forward. “Still alive, are we? Impressive. Let’s fix that, shall we?”

The man’s voice is casual and amused as you feel the gun barrel against your head. “Oh, where are my manners? I’m the Crime Master. Any last words, Spider-man?”

HUNGER!

Peter Parker Quest!

Awesome!

>>30494465
Really?
>>
>>30494545
Maybe he shoots us out of the car before we lose control?

Or maybe we'll eat everyone without any witnesses, the sated Venom will give us control back, and then we can shock Venom off as penance?

Maybe it can even kill us, so this bullshit will be over.

?

>>30494555
I agree with you, but we haven't had good dice in... Months? When was the last good run we had?
>>
>>30494520
godamn it

>>30494566
It's going to be a bloody awful mess. Hopefully no one saw us go in.
An in any case Peter's going to have to live with this.

Fast track to electrocution for next week.
>>
>>30494555
This is a ruined quest, since we're about to kill a fuckload of people, which will make us want to stop being Spider-Man, which will get our loved ones killed, which will make us want to kill ourselves.
>>
>>30494555
they are never good. I think we had one thread of above average rolling, the other 46 have been mostly under 10, especially when it counts. I'm pretty sure we've crit failed 5 or more tests in a row

>>30494600
after our first critfail on controlling the suit, it was either get it or it eats us. Then I think we critfailed again and Stella bailed us out and got us another roll, but I could be wrong there

It's not Spider-Man Quest
It's Peter Parker Quest
Even a broken shell of a Spider-Man could be interesting.
>>
Jesus fucking christ, why do you people always react like this any time something goes wrong in a quest?
>>
>>30494600
We didn't want it.

Our only hope is that Venom realizes that they can shoot faster than it can eat, and it jumps out of the car and gives us a chance to contest it for dominance.
>>
>>30494626
Because we're carrying evil venom
>>
>>30494626
Because it happens ALL the time
>>
>>30494626
Usually I'd agree with you. But PPQ has been plagued by 1s, to the point where nearly any good deed or smart choice is fucked by dice, and Peter has to be constantly rescued by other characters due to his complete ineptitude.
>>
>>30494626
We don't. It's just that everything goes wrong all the time for the past like five threads pretty much.

>>30494622
I would if he didn't laugh about it. Being punished for a random number generator isn't my idea of fun.
>>
>>30494626
because enemies now can roll with +5 modified which is no fun.
>>
>>30494598
>>30494581
Yeah, it's been a bit of a slump.
>>30494520
No timestamp even? A little more proof, please.
>>30494596
There's always interruptions for this shit.

May not be successful interruptions, but certainly interruptions.
>>
So have we unlocked Critmaster yet?
>>
>>30494619

Thing is if it was just us, it would have been bad guys dealing bad shit to us.

Now its us doing bad shit to people and thats not something we can recover from in the public's eye.

>>30494667
>I would if he didn't laugh about it. Being punished for a random number generator isn't my idea of fun.
You DO know you're on /tg/ right and you DO know that most table top systems which most quests share a brotherhood with are based on a die system where random chance is a factor just like in life right?

Stop getting mad. It's a game.
>>
>>30494668
no anon. They roll with +5 modifiers in addition to their actual stats, which are higher than ours when Venom isn't there. Now a lot probably have higher mods than our Venom-boosted self

So all for heading to the nearest power plant, grabbing a conduit, and hoping we live through it?

I guess we just didn't feel like Stella should do all the work?

Fuck this quest.
>>
>>30494724
yep. And if we die, Parker Soul Reaper time, maybe with Strange and DOOM curbstomping Hollows with us
>>
>>30494761
Shut up, Al.
>>
>>30494731
Nah, it just normalizes it. We've had great relations with the press and now we're going to be hated and wanted for murder. Just like Spider-Man in most incarnations.
>>
>>30494693
This is different than just a momentary burst of incompetence.

This will haunt us worse than canon Spider-Man is by Uncle Ben, and we won't even get any meaningful lessons out of it.
>>
>>30494783
Technically we never made any wise-cracks or used webs before flipping out, so there's really just like a couple seconds of seeing us jump into the car.

But really this is exactly why I was saying we should disguise ourselves as Dusk while wearing the symbiote.

“HUUUUUUUUUUUUUNGER!”

>You are Flash Thompson

Walking down the street with your younger sister, Jesse. She’s just turned twelve earlier this year, and after yesterday, there has to be something you can do to help cheer her up.

You’re her older brother, after all.

Walking down the street you pull her to the side, far from the road, as you hear police sirens as you see them chase after an armored SUV that screeches to a stop a little ways down the road from the both of you. You smile as you point to a figure, in a different costume but familiar nevertheless, drops down into the vehicle.

“Don’t worry, Jesse. Spider-man’s got this.”

Your confident smile slips seconds later when you hear the sound of gunfire and then a loud bestial roar. The men in the vehicle pile out, scared as the door one of them jumped out of is torn off the hinges- the four men screaming as they run. A form collapses out of thedoor, facing away as you feel… uneasy.

Before you can stop her, your sister called out. “Way to go Spider-man! You got the bad guys!”

Terror takes you as the form turns. That thing….

It isn’t Spider-man at all. Covered in teeth with an inhuman jaw, it snarls at the both of you as it cries out with a monstrous voice.

“HUNGER!!!!! FEEEEEEEEED!”

Its white eyes narrow as I instinctually step forward, shielding Jesse from view.

You will die here.

“Run.”

My voice is firm even in the face of this monster, which mocks my hero- tarnishes his good name. I’ll buy her as much time as possible.

It will consume you and keep consuming without end. It is an abomination.

>1/2
>>
>>30494783
Except the horrible guilt?

I mean sure 616 Spider-Man got tricked into helping a woman kill herself one time, and he may have snapped Gwen's neck, and then there's the whole Uncle Ben thing, but this kind of seems worse right now.

“RUN, Jesse”

I don’t look back, my eyes locked onto this… monster.

“But… Eugene… y-your shadow.”

I spare a glance as I see it- Black and White- Spider-man, but not, as I hear a voice inside my head.

“Your life is forfeit, but if you share it with me, I can save you. Your life forever changed.”

A cloaked figure lands in front, not looking back. “Run you two! RUN!”

It sounds like a girl, about to cry. Jesse’s eyes are locked onto the flowing darkness around my legs.

”We shall be the Hero to this abomination. A Venom that strikes it down. But, be warned, you might not even survive the attempt.”

I'm predicting that once we become a 'hero' Cos will end the Quest for tonight.

Dammit, I wanted to have a regular PPQ quest not HMQ crack bitch quest with more shit on the line then a world war 1 trench.

I'm done venting and it's late.
>>
>>30495153
I suppose so. A villain death due to legitimate self-defense is AT LEAST a little justified.

Hell, he might not even be dead. Won't stop Peter from feeling guilty about losing control though.
>>
>>30495178
But even JJ rolls better than Peter, at least when it counts.
>>
>>30495164
Yeah... This combined with our trip to the future and we're going to need a LOT of therapy.

This is the single most monumental thing for this quest since it started. The pacing, themes, everything is going to change.

That's what pisses me off. All the shit we did Parker broke a taboo.

>>30495164
To restore the SpiderBrand, we need to detach the Venom with a bigass electric shock, capture it, put it on some weak opponent, then beat it up as Spiderman in public, then shock it again.

‘I…’

Your foot hesitates…

‘I want to be a hero.’

But you step forward anyway. Into the darkness that wraps you. Darkness overtakes you as you’re overwhelmed by everything terrible.

Your father. the beatings, disappointment. Why couldn’t you please him? Why was nothing EVER good enough for him?! The anger, the memory of his bad habits. They’ll haunt your forever.

Your mother- always favoring your sister. Blaming you for your father. Looking at you like she looks at him. All you ever wanted was for her to love you…

The darkness is crushing you down, your anger, sorrow tearing you apart. All the things you’ve done.. How you’ve made people terrified of you, Flash Thompson. Why would someone like you ever be considered a hero?

“EUGENE?!”

You feel someone grab at your arm- distant and yet nearby. A familiar hand. Jesse… she never feared you. Never judged you. You were her shield. Her protector.

She believes in you.

And.. She wasn’t the only one, either.

‘You know, Flash, you might not think it, but if you put your mind to it, you can be whatever you want. Army, Football, so long as you don’t give up, I’m sure you can do it if you try.’

Parker… no, Peter. Even after so much, he gave you another chance. Believed in you.

You eyes narrow as you take a step forward. And another. There’s a figure on the horizon- red and blue. You’ll never be him. But… you can do your best to make him, all of them proud!

The darkness fades as you feel a small hand in yours. There’s another presence there, supporting you. Protecting you.

Giving you strength in return for a home, a place to belong. It was lost, alone. Just like you. But now, neither of you will ever be alone, ever again.

Jesse stares up at you, in awe. “…Eugene?!”

You give her a nod- it warns you as the girl ahead goes flying past as the abomination.

>1/2
>>
>>30495525
Remember when this was a quest about Peter growing as a person and the beginning of metahumans being a thing, before it was derailed by thousands of crit fails and the shitstorms they caused?
>>
“Yeah, you should go, Jesse. I’ll take care of this.”

Your voice is filled with strength, confidence as she scampers off to safety.

The monster roars at you as it readies itself to charge, Its muscles bulging with unbridled strength that intends to come bearing down upon you.

“HHHHHHHUNNNGER! FEEED!”

“…Yeah, you said that already.”

>with permission from DXR

>[ Combat is performed via a simple rock-paper-scissors triangle. You, as the players, have the advantage of always acting after your opponent or opponents. Through cues in the descriptive text, you must determine which of three tactics to adopt. Adopting the correct tactic causes you to gain a point. Adopting an incorrect tactic will cause your opponent to gain a point. If you both select the same tactic, both you and your opponents gain a point. All combat takes place over three exchanges, each worth one point. The first to gain 2 out of the 3 points is the victor. While losing a fight will not typically cause the quest to end, it will lead to unpleasant and usually severe consequences.

>Strike: Strikes are fast, precision based attacks. Any attack which seems like it may rely on overwhelming speed or pinpoint accuracy is likely a Strike. As a general rule of thumb, most mundane gunfire is considered a Strike. Strikes defeat Crashes, but are defeated by Guards.

>Crash: A Crash is a highly telegraphed, but extremely powerful blow. Any attack which seems to rely mostly on the brute strength or overwhelming force is likely a Crash. As a general rule of thumb, most thrown objects, like trees or boulders, are considered Crashes. Crashes defeat Guards, but are defeated by Strikes.

>Guard: A Guard is a defensive posture or evasive stance which is used to set up a counter-blow. Any attack which appears as if it could be a feint or which seems to be a stalling tactic is likely to be a Guard. Guards defeat Strikes, but are defeated by Crashes.

I think Cosgrove could keep the Parker Luck/Spectacular Point system but remove crit fails/crit successes. 3 chances to roll a crit makes them ridiculously likely.

That way 1s and 20s still effect the quest negatively or positively but don't decide an entire roll every time they show up.

>>
>>30495697
you can start feeling bad for Flash now too who's about to have his hero, inspiration, and new friend confirmed for a savage monster.
>>
>>30495729
Not always, some quests regularly roll extremely well, like Ogre Civ Quest.
>>
>>30495729
>>30495737
I don't want the system to change... I just want to be less unlucky.
When it's something like this, where you simply cannot do anything to fix it, it's just depressing. I want this quest to be a success. I want Peter to be not just the kind of hero the comics have shown him to be. I want him to be a BETTER one. One that uses every advantage to make the world better instead of shouldering it all himself like a moron.

But the dice hate us. Alas. How can you fight randomness and chance? It can't be done.
>>
>>30495740
I don't know, it's just the context of these particular crit failures that can be grueling.

Some of the successes, like stealthing our way into the Baxter Building were pretty neat.
>>
>>30495741
not sure if cos, but here I go
>>
Rolled 5

>>30495587
1: strike
2: rolling for effectiveness because bedtime and want to roll
>>
>>30495775
Not Cosgrove at all
>>
>>30495774
A 20 would still be a success unless the DC was impossibly high. I don't see how it's a big deal if it stops being the super cool instant win button and just becomes a regular win button.
>>
>>30495775
You didn't type in the "email" field.
>>
>>30495773
In retrospect, it was a bad idea to get in the middle of a bunch of armed criminals.

I think if we plan better, we can negate the severity of critfails?

You know, after Flash kills Ultimate Venom?
>>
Personally, I like how Cos capitalized on the wonkyness of /tg/ dice by creating quests that make the random crits appropriate to the theme.

FULLKUBO and Parker Luck both fit the respective franchises pretty well.
>>
>>30495774
A 20 would still have resulted in a success on that roll. Just like 1 would still be a failure.

Let's face it. All crits really do is make you rage or cheer harder.
>>
>>30495823
While it makes for an interesting/dramatic story, it's not nearly as fun to play with.
>>
>>30495812
Hindsight 20/20.
>>30495773
I don't want the system to change either, it's just that it was going to happen eventually.
>>
>>30495812
The downside of any dice based game is that any planning or idea can be fucked up by a poor roll. The other side is diceless, description based games, which usually remove most elements of chance. Usually some kind of middle ground has to be reached, but it's a pain in the ass to find it
>>
>>30495806
I'd be fine with that. Remove the critical aspect alltogether so we aren't so susceptible to /tg/ dice being as wonky as they are.
>>
>>30495823
It's fun when it's swingy, but these last threads seem like nothing but failure.
>>
>>30495812
That's a fair point. We did kind of screw up there but really what else could we do? The suit literally saved us from full-auto gunfire and we only got hit in the first place because we botched the roll. Otherwise we would have dodged and swiped the guns out of their hands with our violating tentacles.

1s fuck us. 20s make us do something awesome. It's that simple.
>>
>>30495848
Shouldn't be something that extreme, maybe cap how many critfails can happen in a row or something
>>
>>30495850
I believe we've had mostly failures since we first tried to help MJ and failed a stupid number of times against some random punks
>>
This is a nice time to experiment with other formats, at least. Gives a unique feel to each character we play.
>>
>>30495832
This.

And with Parker Luck and Spec Points we still have a reason to rage and cheer harder at the 1s and 20s without it being such a drag.
>>
>>30495806
>>30495848
No, that would only make the entire quest trivial and no longer tense. I don't think that would keep it popular.
>>
>>30495869
or start giving the crit perks from BQ
>>
>>30495875
At least they didn't have skateboards.
>>
>>30495858
After the car stopped, we could have just ripped the engine out and let the police handle it.

Or rip the door open.

Or just tip the SUV over.

Unless the only difference would have been we'd turn into Venom right in front of everyone after getting pumped full of lead regardless.
>>
God fucking dammit!

Why!? we wanted to bond with the symbiote we wanted to be the one spiderman that actually has a healthy relationship with the symbiote, And we become this! we became Carnage!
>>
>>30495901
Please no, then we would just fish for crits whenever a nat 1 was rolled
>>
>Success!

It’s coming to crash down upon you, so naturally, you’re going to have to strike back first! Out of the corner of your eyes, you see something by the girl’s side- a large, ornate looking revolver- quickly extending a portion of your partner, it brings it to your hand as your arm brings it up to fire- no time to hesitate. No time to doubt.

Your partner fill your arm with strength as you fire off the powerful rounds one after another- all six right into its charging maw, the powerful rounds hitting and penetrating its flesh and knocking it back onto its knees, roaring in agony as it clutches at its face.

One angry eyes stares at you, almost bewildered as its eye narrows. It starts to move, carefully, as dozens of tentacles extend from its back, pointed towards your body, each and every swaying like a rattlesnake about to bite as it lets out a low growl.

>Strike
>Crash

>>30495913
Probably the only way that would have happened is if we hadn't let Peter get bitten by the spider.

>>30495913
We don't have the sentient symbiote. Flash does.

We have the mindless, raving, genetically-altered, failed cancer cure suit. It can't be reasoned with.
>>
>>30495921
Crash
>>
>>30495913
For one, this isn't the Venom you can bond with, Flash has that
And two, we're not carnage, yet.
>>
>>30495913
The Symbiote we can have a meaningful relationship with is the one Flash is wearing right now.

It's a sapient space thing that is capable of having thoughts and feelings.

The thing we're wearing now is a shitty clone our dad made that's a bundle of feral instincts with nothing to bond with.
>>
>>30495898
Removing rolling completely would make it trivial. I'm just getting really sick of one or more critfails nearly every quest and barely any critsuccesses. I can live without them.
>>
>>30495921
Seems like a Guard. Crash.

There's nothing about this attack that seems like it relies on precision or overwhelming speed. It's waiting for us to make a move, so it's a Guard.

>>30496014
I think they see moving warily as tantamount to being on the defensive, and would only recognize a strike if they were right about to be punched.

Even though if you're not sure if it's a Strike or a Guard, it's way better to err on the side of caution and pick Guard, because if you're wrong the only consequence is both of you are just standing there like morons.
>>
>>30495972
I can't tell if it's telegraphing a lightning attack or acting with caution for a counter-strike. I think it's the later, but I could certainly be wrong. It's not supposed to be easy to guess.
>>
>>30496040
The safer option is to take guard though, and since this is a new system, better safe than sorry and all that.
>>
>>30496040
But if we're wrong and we pick Crash, then he wins.

If we're wrong and we pick Guard, then we're both just pretty much staring at each other instead of fighting.
>>
>>30496040
>dozens of tentacles extend from its back, pointed towards your body
it doesn't sound like a huge punch (aka crash) or trying to protect it self (aka guard) so it must me strike.
>>
>>30496070
You idiot.

It's not safer at all. Every action we can do is nothing more than a new way to defeat every action he does. A wrong decision will still earn HIM a point and bring us closer to losing the fight.
Strike, Guard, Crash, they are all equally 'safe'. Read the rules, holy shit.
>>
>writing
>>
>>30496103
We're a point ahead though, so even if we tie for every round after this, we still win.
>>
>>30496104
Is this system inspired by Suikoden? It reminds me of that since guard defeats tactics, tactics defeats attack, and attack defeats guard.
>>
>>30496103
Actually, if we both pick the same action both sides get points. And since this is first to 2 that means we win.

Read the rules yourself.
>>
>>30496103
>The first to gain 2 out of the 3 points is the victor
We already have 1 point and even if both Flash and Peter symbiotes do a guard we still going to gain a point and win by rules
>>
>>30496103
Oh SNAP SON. Who failed Third Grade Math? This Guy!
>>
>>30496132
I guess you're right on that. Then again, it's pretty obvious Venom's striking, so it doesn't make sense to guard just to make the sleep-deprived paranoids happy.
>>
pretty late to be saying it, but Cos, can we not have every one of our fuckups be punctuated by a PoV switch? The number of times it happens kinda takes away from Peter's involvement even more than his incompetence by bad rolling does
>>
>>30496166
What? But Guard is what you do to beat Strike.

Strike is the thing that Crash beats.

>Guard beats Strike, Success!


You tense, taking a defensive posture as dozens and dozens of tentacles shoot out to strike at you. Each and every one as deadly as the bullets you fired at it, and more than likely with a worse bite. Dodging out of the way of one, which becomes two, which becomes five, you pull yourself out of the way of the others as your partner extends webbing from your wrist- the superfluous material breaking off to decay as you land.

Grabbing a retreating tentacle, you pull on it, exerting force, the ground cracking under your feet as the beast is pulled up into the air above you before you pull down sharply and uppercut its jaw with not only all of your strength, but that off gravity’s assistance as well! Twice the force!

Teeth shatter as you send the thing flying as it groans and collapses into a pile of limbs. Letting out a sigh, your partner warns you to be careful. Turning back, you see it roar- a new mouth and head forming. Man, and just when you’d though that you made the winning touchdown, it seems like you’re back in for overtime!

[ENEMY SKILL: THE UNDYING BEAST- It needs to be hit with a successful blow or match using its weakness to be defeated, or else it will always stay one point under the threshold for defeat! Flash, be careful!]

The thing gets to its feet and rampages for a bit- as the street’s torn apart- as a power line falls down, you see it move away, watching you carefully with the calculating eyes of a beast- its tentacles called back as it paces, growling even though it looks like it's got indigestion.

>>30495740
I kind of would prefer this idea over using the rock paper scissors thing(it seems pretty neat but it kind of makes combat a little too simple and cuts out the creativity of attacks).

1s and 20s still matter but just not in as huge of a way. We still get shit on by Parker Luck and still get bonuses and plot twist set ups with Spec Points and the dice are just less swingy.

When you put it that way, it's a good thing the symbiote ate our costume, since that leaves us with the first one we designed.

Bad End Spider-Man.

Two nat 1s, but i understand what you mean.

Point, but if the symbiote dies from this, that frees up time that would be spent dealing with that so we can deal with other shit, like Felicia.

Our luck in this quest is directly proportional to the amount of "screentime" Felicia gets, and inversely proportional to the amount of time spent in the company of Gwen Stacy.
The Black Cat is our good luck charm... which is kind of ironic.
I hope he doesn't die.

Like I don't think we're in a good place to be kid friendly right now.

I hope it gives our Spider suit back. That was a gift. A really cool gift.

But it might also leave a bunch of shirts and pants lying around, ones that Venom ate.

we won't get a chance. We're going to be unconscious for weeks from this beatdown, then find out that Silvermane's killer got to Felicia. cue tears

I wasn't talking about the Venom stuff only, we should've at least tried something when we went to her house.
Not even approach her necessarily, just do something.

>Weeks

I'd say at max a single week. Remember we have Fast Healing. It might even be only a few days.

I'd honestly like to keep the Parker Luck/Spec Point system without the instant success/failure rules like suggested above.

It seems like too much of this quest just hinges on how lucky on unlucky we are and nothing else.

It's pretty astounding you know what's going to happen. Can you tell me this week's winning lottery numbers? I could use a break.
