You really do. But sometimes people don’t want your best, and all you’ve got left is your worst. You don’t think you’re quite at that point yet, but you’re getting there. Paige swings at you with a steel fist, intent on caving your face straight through the back of your skull. She yelps in frustration as you teeter out of the way, flowing easily around one, then two, then three wild attempts to bludgeon your face in. You can hear the anger in her heart – even through that metallic chest of hers, pumping like a furnace, every sinew in her body twisting to its beat, like tiny cords of rebar strumming against one another. In all fairness, this – you being here, under the open roof of this horrible ruin, right where her brother’s attacker is supposedly hiding out – does probably look pretty bad. You’re not the one she’s looking for, but the time and the place have conspired to put that impression in her, and you get how rage can muffle all but the sharpest of thoughts.Right now, you’re considering yourself lucky that her friends haven’t joined in. She makes another sweep at you, but you find yourself pirouetting through the air, evading her grasp by a fair bit. The half-crumbled wall of the building is behind you now, though, so you’re steadily running out of places to run. Before she comes at you again, throat bulging with obscenities, you catch a quick glimpse of Kevin pulling himself up. You think he’s removing one of his gloves, too.>Hunger Level: 4>Current Funds: $0.00>Present Time: 16:45 PM>[ ] Smack some sense into her figuratively, with words.>[ ] Smack some sense into her literally, with fists.>[ ] Try to grab Kevin and disengage.>[ ] Write in.

>(1/2)>>32022193>18She lunges in, trying to grab a hold of you, put a stop to your slippery ways. You’re having none of that. You slip through her fingers like grease, springing backward through the air, that funny, static-y tingle passing up your fingers as you adhere to the wall behind you. She doesn’t let up, screaming in rage and aiming a gleaming fist straight for you, the dusk turning it into a streak of scarlet light. You spring off, her arm driving its way deep into the plaster behind you, and bring your palm down on the offending limb, pushing off it to propel yourself straight over her head, the world wheeling around you. “Argh!” Grunting, she rips her arm out of the wall. “Stay still, you creep!”“Yeah, no.” Before she can turn around, you plant a boot in the flat of her back. It’s like hitting a wall, but she staggers off-balance nonetheless. “I’m not the vampire you’re looking for, missy.” Regaining her balance, she hurls a weighty overarm punch at you, like a pitcher dipping into the most violent throw ever. You twist aside easily, frowning at her continued belligerence.
>(2/2)“We came here”– You duck under another blow, and step away from yet another. –“looking for”– She screams in rage and practically throws herself at you. –“the same guy”– Oh man, you’ve had enough of this shit. You spring over her head once again, using her shoulders for purchase this time. Adhering to her cold skin, you hit the ground and heave with all your might, stomach clenching. You are once again surprised at your own lifting capacity, and you swing her straight over your head, bringing the girl’s metallic weight crashing down into the ground at your feet, driving her head-first into the concrete. She goes almost comically limp for a second, flopping down to one side, a stream of distorted gibberish issuing from her mouth. The back of your skull screams at you. Something’s about to hurt. >Reflex Check>DC15>+2 agility bonus>+2 danger sense bonus

>>32022477>22“Get away from her!” You’re happy to oblige. You throw yourself back – you’re pretty sure you just cartwheeled or something – and feel the claws snap through the air behind you, digging tiny, invisible tunnels through the cold. Falling into a low crouch, you survey your surroundings. Dog-boy (Gleeson? Gearson?) has put himself between you and Paige’s sputtering form, a low growl thrumming in his chest. For just a moment, you catch yourself doing pretty much the same, the bestial intonations coming to you with unsettling ease. You cut it out, and keep your distance, using your senses to dig at him, taking in the tiny subtleties of his stance, measuring the length of his heartbeats, trying to wring his next move out of him. Your stomach churns hungrily, and you feel yourself baring your fangs. You think you can vaguely hear Kevin declaring that somebody doesn’t want to do something, but your senses are hooked into this kid now, drinking deep of his veins and his sinews and the marrow sleeping in his bones. That predatory flash passes through your spine again. He’s about to make his move. >[ ] Just dodge. >[ ] Try to pin him or incapacitate him somehow.>[ ] Smack his bitch face up.>[ ] Write in.

>>32022784I'm for upgrading electrostatic touch, but I feel agility has priority
Rolled 15>>32022828We really need to figure out what to do about our anger.
>>32022830Shock is shock. It takes absurdly little to incapacitate someone.Those who are immune are not going to keel over from an upgrade i am sorry to say. But being able to fry robotics would be a good thing if we ever have to face the dreaded sentinels.
Rolled 15>>32022858Honestly, I think we need to save for Invisibility so crackbitch has less of a hold over it.
>>32022888Indeed.Being able to stealth without crack bitching would be a godsend.
>>32022882Sentinels would require either a high level of it or something that could pierce their armour like sonic scream

>>32022903but if we fail the stealth check, we'd be screwedit effectively removes karma point re-rerolling
>>32022904>>32022921How about both DB AND SS people stop bringing it up.
>>32022729He answers questions whenever an Anon asks.>>32022756>This Peter is fifteen or sixteen.I mean like which art style are you using? THe one in the pic you use always when Peter shows up, or like the one pic where he's signing an autograph for a goth girl.(I tried finding the pic and couldn't)>>32022858I think we should get Shadow Field or Bioweave 2 first, myself.Though Taser Hands II: Shocking Spocker is fine too.
>>32022921I respect the possibilities of DB. I feel that part of it's support is by people trying to derail the quest, and I wish that wasn't the case. Ultimately, I'd like a ranged attack that solves a lot of problems, and sonics has decent adaptives & takes care of several problems JJ will face. DB makes more sense in the narrative, though.
>>32022982>DB makes more sense in the narrative, though.I disagree with that but I like everything else you said.Not that anon, also.
>>32022967He's using what ever art style you want Anon thats the wonder of Imagination.
>>32022982A respectable position. I voted for it because it fitted more to the narrative as well, and sonic is just something i felt didn't fit with the power set at the time, or even now really. High senses + screaming = lots of pain.I don't always vote for the most efficient power, min-maxing will produce the same boring story every time. I don't read this quest for a power trip. I really enjoy Crusty's writing style and the story he has built.
>>32023075>because it fitted more to the narrative as well,Again, something I don't understand.>. High senses + screaming = lots of pain.Not JJ's screaming. That won't hurt him, like how DB doesn't hurt him either.
>>32022724Gotta make sure to tell Kevin not to touch anyone, or warn others against touching him.Hell, just tell him not to get involved.
>>32023075Downside in this case, we have the phobia. So it sits there, with potential, but nothing more.
>>32023124He already is avoiding the touch as much as he can though.
>>32023129True, but we can always do something about that. We've just had a bit much on our plate to do anything for it.Heating a bath would be a prime example of an easy way to get used to it. >>32023105JJ has been a bit of an adaptive type, taking DNA copys of powers he has come into contact with. His Ex has flamable bodily fluids. And he has some long time exposure to her. If any power of the three on offer were going to be absorbed, that would have been the one.
He leaps. You leap better, digging your claws into his shoulders and slamming him to the ground. He struggles frantically at you, foam flying from his mouth, claws raking through your coat, along your arms, across your cheek – but you’re simply too strong for him. You win. You.Your teeth ache. The hunger in your stomach gnaws at you – you can smell the sweetness of his blood, feel the texture of his flesh, you can all but taste it. It digs into you, promising warmth and life and something like wonder. His wounds – you dig your claws in deeper, eliciting a howl of pain from your foe – are like entryways to his heart, to something fascinating and strange, something you can taste, taste, taste good, great, warm, bloody.It’s the terrible crack of your jaw disjointing that pulls you out of it. You realize yourself, what you’re doing, an abject sense of horror suddenly clotting in your throat, and the taste of raw chicken surfaces in your memory. You almost wretch. Almost. Enough of you remembers that you’re still in a fight here, and you let the volts flow from your palms. The kid spasms, shrieking in pain and redoubling his efforts to get free, but you might as well be a ton of bricks on his chest, because he’s not going anywhere. It takes a good few pulses, but eventually he stops struggling, slackening across the concrete, his entire musculature no longer willing to listen to him.You heave yourself away from him, gagging very slightly. Your jaw slips back into place.>Will Save Succeeded!>+1 HungerYou look up, and are just in time to see Kevin throwing up his hands in self-defense, a long dagger of bone exploding into a shower of dust as it strikes his palm. The mohawk girl – it’s more of a mohawk-gone-rogue, really – clicks her tongue and clenches her fists, a pair of bright ivory scimitars pushing through the flesh on her elbows.>[ ] Diplomacy.>[ ] Tackle her before Kevin gets hurt. >[ ] Write in.

>>32022982>>32023007we were having fun in this thread till you guys decide to reopen old wounds.I didn't want to vote on the ranged power then (I knew it would lead to a shitstorm and it still fucking is) and when it happened I back optic force blast (the best ranged attack, I don't give a shit about your sonic scream armor piercing BS). and when you idiots brought it down to SS vs DB, I backed DB, because every other post about SS was just calling DB people retarded.

>>32023386>16>success“Stop!” You shout, raising your hand in a manner that you assume to be commanding, or at least desperate enough to achieve roughly the same effect. The girl pauses, glancing scornfully at you, and transfers her macabre weapons to her hands. “Y-yeah.” Pitches in a second, decidedly Welsh voice. You both divert your gaze, and see the last of the group being manhandled through the debris by Laura, who has a blade hovering over her throat. Her weird little wings twitch nervously – it’s kinda cute, in a way. “Stopping, like, I-I think, that w-would be kinda good…” Mohawk-girl glances between the three of you, as if seriously – seriously – weighing up her odds, and for a second you actually think she might actually have a go at it. But eventually she drops her hands to her sides, nodding grimly in your direction. “Alright.” She has a way of spitting everything out, this one. “Guess we can call this one a draw. Did a real number on Gleason.” A draw? Seriously? You take a moment to regard Paige and the dog kid – the former of which is currently pulling herself up, her breathing heavy and oddly metallic. You and Kevin glance at each other. “Yeah… sure, whatever.” Honestly, neither of you care. “Look, your friend made a mistake. We’re looking for the same person.” “Mhmm.” She snorts, glancing off into the ruins. “Yeah, figured as much.”>[ ] Tell them to clear off.>[ ] Tell them you’ll get better results if you work together.>[ ] Ask them [insert question].>[ ] Write in.

>>32023753 >[ ] Tell them to clear off.
>>32024006Yeah, I kept thinking of her as a dumb bitch but it took me a bit to think about it and empathize.And I suspect that Joyce is the vampire, actually.Vampiric Touch, yo.
If they were here, they're probably long gone by now. Might as well look for clues
>>32024006Considering that JJ found his brother for her, you'd think that a reasonable person would ask what the hell is he doing there.
>>32024035I doubt she's even in NY, or at least the scar
>>32024059*her brother for themJesusAlso >[ ] Tell them to clear off.
>>32024006>>32023937We want to avoid more conflict, especially because JJ's emotional state right now is volatile. If Paige is pissed and is too aggressive to make a rational choice on why to attack someone and try to kill them, she's not going to respond to an argument.Lets find the vampire and make sure she doesn't go murder someone if they've developed powers they can't control.
>>32024060She is in NY. After the boat indecent Crusty made a comment about almost running into her. We don't know if she was in one of the crates or one of the people attacking the boat when we left.
Gotta compliment Kevin for holding his own against the crazy bone bitch.
>>32024110Her bone spear disintegrating against his hand was cool.
>>32024006I get her emotional state. But, I don't want her to start charging everything they encounter. Also, I think the Vampire's wounded. Remember the blood from earlier? I think it's been attacking people to heal, but hasn't killed anyone and with how certain people feel I think it'd ended up getting lynched if the other know who it is.
>>32024129Nah manI think that was self inflicted.
>>32024122We should totally pick the bone javelin from wall with us so we can show that trick back at home. Let Kevin get a little enjoyment from his powers.
>>32024145maybe so, maybe not. I'd rather them not be around.
anybody else mildly concerned over the flesh and blood cravings?we had a will check this time and its only a matter of time till JJ does what does best (crack bitching)
>>32024196Same, but i doubt we will be able to tell them to bugger off. They do have a solid reason for being here.This damn hunger thing is wanting me to invest in photo sharpish.
>>32024249We just need a sammich.
>>32024249I was concerned before, with the meat. Now I think JJ needs to figure out what's going on before he can't even control it.
>>32024249I'm very concerned of that. That's why I think we should get some food ASAP and maybe put a couple of points in Photosynth
>>32024249Photosynthesis is a priority now. Don't Want JJ turning cannibal.
>>32024293I think the hunger will happen anyway.
>>32024287IIRC, it'd take till lv3 to substantially feed him(I'm fine with going that far). and if we're getting photo, might as well starting going towards green finger anyways
>[X] Tell them you’ll get better results if you work together.>[X] With the option of telling some of them to clear off.You feel your eyebrow twitch in annoyance. Seriously? “…If you figured as much, why the hell were you chucking your creepy bone shit at my friend?” She chortles quietly, sauntering over to dog-boy’s prone form, prodding experimentally at him with the blunt(er. That thing still looks like it could do some serious damage) end of one of her bone-blades. He groans. “Well, I reckon Gleason got all territorial, thinkin’ with his dick-brains ‘stead of his real brains, and by then it’d had all gone off, hadn’t it?” She glances over at Laura. “You any good with those blades, girl?” Silence. She turns back to you, jerking her thumb in Laura’s direction. You notice she doesn’t seem to be all too fussed about the fact the other girl has a set of knives kissing at her friend’s neck. “There somethin’ wrong with her?” You sigh. “Believe me, she’s the best at what she does.” She’s not answering because you’re beneath her notice, you hyper-aggressive weirdo. “Look, we’re looking for the same guy, right? So why don’t we get it done together.” The girl considers it for a few seconds, though not for one moment do you get the impression that she really gives a shit. “Yeah, sure.” She shrugs and does this… this little laugh thing. It’s quite unsettling. “Why not?” >[ ] Tell them you should split up and cover the grounds.>[ ] Nah.

>>32024454Shadow FieldBioweave 2Claws 2Taserhands 2
>>32024454If we get a point at the end of the thread Shadow field would be a good investment. I'm tiered of our Invisibility shorting out every two seconds.
>>32024535I would agree, but we are rolling WILL saves here not to take a bite out of someone at low hunger.I really do not want to see us go high hunger.
>>32024575Agreed.Plus, kinda being like Lil' Slugger is cool.
Gotta give Kevin props for the whole vanishing bones thing.
>>32024532>Claws 2>Taserhands 2Strength 3>>>>>>those two wastes of points>>32024535>>32024571meh, I'd back it if it offered invisibility, not a small stopgap>>32024571agreed, cannibalism has a social stigma to itBioweave wouldn't be bad though
>>32024623We already have strength 3 don't we?
>>32024641we have strenght lvl 2
>>32024623Agreed on Strength 3 being an option, but I like Claws 2 or Bioweave 2 as well.
>>32024641nope, just strength 2.if we absolutely had to get a melee based power, strength 3 is where its at.
I will support the Shadow Field party if it also helps conceal us while we are in flight.
>>32024532Claws 2 is the most we'll need claws at for a while. Upgrading Claws to 2 is probably better then Strength to 3 because it means our claws can cut through steel + the strength mod, and should make us extremely respectable as a melee fighter.Shadow Field gives us a big advantage in combat, as people can see a distortion, but can't see us, thus it's much harder to read our movements.Taser could be viable for Kimira at really high levels, but is fine as is.
Why not go for Invis 5? Maxing out senses removed critfails from sensing things. Removing a thing as being critfailable seems really really good
>>32024691I like Claws staying at level 2, agreed.Shadow Field is something we need to buy at some point, no questions asked.True. Adhesive Touch 2, then?
>>32024690Shadow Field is useful for stressful situations, which includes combat but isn't limited to it.Still, I think we're focusing a tad too much on combat skills. Photo to combat our hunger would probably be a good idea soon.
>>32024623>Strength 3Yeah, but Strength is capped at 3. It's a dead end when it comes to end game tier opponents and obstacles.
>>32024778Just like every other ability available to JJ.
>>32024778Yeah, but in combination with other abilities it helps quite a lot.
>>32024778Strength is severely OP compared to most of the powers.4 is fucking hulk tier, the strength level of 3 is a bargain.
>>32024691So, think about it, 2p for Claws, 2p for Shadow Field, Invis would be insanely useful, Taser could be good. Adhesive could be very nice, especially past 3 (it takes a little while to ramp up, but could be amazing as a disabling ability).I still feel like we should focus more on non-combat utility stuff more, like Photo (adhesive falls under this).
after we get Shadow Field we should save for echolocation or more armor.sorry druidbros
>>32024817>4 is fucking hulk tier,No. It's The Thing tier.Hulk tier is like 10.
>>32024804Taser, Adhesive, Invis aren't.
>>320248174 is not Hulk tier. Hulk has infinity strength.
>>32024838I think Invis would help us more and Adhesive could be a great answer to Kimura (whatever her name is).It's alright, one day, anon
>>32024817I'm not sure you understand what Hulk level strength really is in the Marvelverse.
>>32024845>>32024854>>32024887I knew it was one of those.
>>32024707>removed critfailsnot quite, iirc, we have to roll 2 Nat 1's to critfail. I'd rather critfail than regular fail because we get to karma re roll.we pretty much remove karma rerolling to get an addition +1 to our bonus>>32024736agreed, I don't want JJ to be a cannibaldepending on how many points we get, (I assume we'll get more than one for the scuffle and we have one banked atm)if we end with 2 X points total>Photo 1>animal affinity 1buying into photo is effectively buying into green finger, but...if more we end with 3 X points>Photo 1>Photo 2 the HUNGER is a big concern at the moment and the faster we up photosynthesis to accommodate it, the better

>>32024941Druid is a pretty awesome power set.Imma vote for Photo at least, and seriously getting a bunch of plants whose edibility can be altered would be pretty awesome.Healing potatos that gotta be hit with electricity or they poison the shit outta you?
Shadow field is also good for flying while invisible.>>32024623>meh, I'd back it if it offered invisibility, not a small stopgapInvisibility doesn't stop our power from shorting out. lvl 5 only allows us to take more things/people invisible with us. Other than that it's the same as lvl 4.>>32024817Crusty confirmed that hulk strength doesn't have a tier system like ours since hulk doesn't have an upper limit.
>>32024897druid costs an exorbitant amount, would much rather spend the points on more practical abilities.
>>32024969>you seem madNot that Anon, but that's not mad.Previous threads where I call everyone a faggot?That's mad.
>>32024988 Seconded, but if we stumble upon a shitload of points, then I''ll agree to buy druid

You can’t help but feel kinda sorry for the younger girl, and reach down to help her up, pulling her onto her feet. She replies with an absolutely ridiculously hostile scowl, but seems to realize that you’re the only thing keeping her feet steady at the moment. “Sorry about that.” You offer.Mohawk guffaws loudly, making her way further into the building. “Come on, pick up that pace.

Frankly, i don't care about the druid argument, but photosynthesis is needed, just to stop the will rolls to eating people.Vote for photo, and vote against the druid stuff after that.

>>32025061>[ ] “What’s your name, anyhow?”>[ ] …Actually, you’d rather not she stabs some poor mutie on sight. Get ahead of her.
>>32025190Emotional state clouded her reasoning abilities.>>32025214>but photosynthesis is needed, just to stop the will rolls to eating people.We don't know that.We should ask Crusty first.
>>32025149I keep hearing this but I hardly ever get a consistent list.it agility and or some flavor of the month power.>>32025190>JJ>not being betakek>>32025214buying photo would start paying off the "exorbitant" costsalso>not growing fruits and veggies to even further diminish hunger
>>32025230Was Crusty who stated it was a will roll not to bite him.We pretty much do know that. But if you wish to ask crusty first, that's fine with me.
I don't think photosynthesis us really gonna stop the "hunger". What was JJs hunger level when he was about to snack on wolf boy? I think it's more of just a primal mutant type thing.
>>32025286I don't see why you wouldn't ask first before jumping to conclusions.
>>320252894.Level 3 photo basically says he can sustain on sunlight. Which would mean a general walking about in the day would drop hunger to 0. Every animal stops eating at 0. Because they are full.
>>320253514th lvl photo = Sunlight Yellow Overdrive
>>32025270>I hardly ever get a consistent list.Do not make me post the order preference list. I've done it before. I've refined it since.I fear it may soon evolve into the beginnings of a tome of madness. Or possibly OCD.
>>32025289http://pastebin.com/JYrcDPPk (seriously man, put these in the OP)>PHOTOSYNTHETIC BIOLOGYJJ mutates a number of plantlike attributes, first and foremost among them the ability to derive sustenance from sunlight.Level 1: JJ may now derive a measure of sustenance from direct sunlight. As long as he spends a few hours per day standing under the sun, he can mitigate the effects of hunger.Level 2: JJ may now mitigate hunger via shorter time exposed to sunlight.Level 3: JJ may now metabolize indirect sunlight, though this takes longer. He can choose to ‘store’ energy gained this way for a rainy day rather than consuming it immediately.Level 4: JJ shakes off fatigue and illness more easily when under the sun. He can choose to temporarily boost one of his attributes to heightened levels by burning through stored solar energy.Level 5: JJ is nearly impossible to tire out under the sun and can sustain himself almost indefinitely with only sunlight and sparse amounts of water for nourishment.>the one thing photosynthetic does (on its own anyway) is feed JJ's hunger
>>32025408So we only need level 1 to actually reduce overall hunger.
>>32025450and at 5 JJ never has to eat againwould that mean he never has to poop again either?
>[X] “What’s your name, anyhow?”>[X]…Actually, you’d rather not she stabs some poor mutie on sight. Get ahead of her. “What’s your name, anyhow?” You’re betting Fang. Or Blade. Or Blade Fang. “Marrow.” She grunts back. Close enough. Closer than you’re comfortable with, actually. You decide against pointing out that Marrow isn’t any kind of name you’ve heard before, and instead turn your attention toward Kevin. He looks about as surprised as you are about that bone just exploding into nothingness on contact with his skin.“You alright?” He glances up from his hands, a stray look in his eyes, almost like you’ve caught him out somehow. “Yeah… I’m fine…” Trailing off into silence, he looks back down at his hands. “Didn’t know I could do it that quickly…” “Yeah, that was pretty neat.” You say, hopefully putting a positive spin on his honestly really super shitty powers. People still use ‘neat’ to describe cool things, right? You help Paige a short way along before letting her friend with the bright pink skin and the scent of candyfloss take over, images of horrific first contact between ‘Marrow’ and some poor mutie with no control over their powers edging in on your thoughts. You quickly make your way ahead of her, pointing out that you’ve already checked downstairs, and begin making your way up the stairs. >[ ] Proceed cautiously, using senses (involves keeping Marrow from getting bored).>[ ] Proceed quickly. >[ ] Write in.

>>32025450nobody took healing factor 1 with the intention of keeping it there
>>32025408I think what the anon was getting at is that the 'hunger', as in the 'RageRageIEatYoFace' hunger, hasn't actually got much to do with hunger, as in 'I need to consume food for sustenance'.It's a psychosomatic predatory dominance trait from the depths of JJs lizard brain, forced into being as a result of his superpowered rage issues. Which are either caused by unstable genetics, possible deific ancestry (dammit, Lugh), or the fact that he's just that screwed in the head....Yay, comic book science.>>32025571>>[ ] Proceed cautiously, using senses (involves keeping Marrow from getting bored).
>>32025450More levels means it's more effective. Note that hunger usually happens from power use, exertion, and now cocoon-time-related mutation.

>>32025758Not me, actually.>>32025641Seconded
>>32025883Then just rip her head off and toss it in a box.Problem solved.
>>32025862Marrow is pretty cool. She made it into Marvel vs Capcom.
So I know there has been a lot of talk about photosynthesis and strength and claws and such, but what is the consensus on getting Agility to Rank 4 and then picking up Autonomic Sequencing and Enhanced Muscle Memory? It would make our training sessions with Laura progress considerably more quickly, allowing JJ to get to her level in months or weeks as opposed to years (as well as picking up moves from any well trained opponents we might wind up facing).Being super elf-lizard Taskmaster would be pretty sweet.
>>32025839Is she Wolverines cousin or something?
>>32025883Ooh, crunchy....and now we discussing the merits of eating our enemies. Or at least the allies we don't like.

>>32025718>20>successYou have to fight to keep Marrow from pushing her way past you. It’s not easy, and it’s not pretty, and getting her to lower her voice is like pulling teeth, but eventually you manage to get it into her head that maybe – just maybe – it’d be a good idea to proceed with caution. Even after she relents, you feel less like she’s seen the enlightened point of view, which has clearly benefited greatly from your head not being weight down askew by some stroppy failed Mohawk, but that she’s just letting you have your way. You plod up the stairs in relative quiet, scanning the floor with your thermal vision. Most of the building is painted in cold blue shades, but further inside, perhaps a few rooms in, there’s a distinct corona of heat standing out against the shades of frost. It’s not a particularly strong impression, but it’s most definitely there, and it’s moving.

So I been wondering..does JJ legit believe Joyce is alive or is he just telling himself she is?I mean we all know she's alive(out of game) but I wanna know if JJ sincerely believes that or if he's just saying that.fine with either one.
>>32026268>So I been wondering..does JJ legit believe Joyce is alive or is he just telling himself she is?I think it's both.He knows that she's alive, but there's a creeping doubt that's disguised as a belief she's alive as well.
>>32026268I think the only answer we can really accept there is "Yes."
>[X] Tell everyone something’s coming.>[X] Go in alone, see what you can do. Aaaaaaaaa– At least it has body heat. That means it can’t be a real vampire, right? “Something’s coming.” You mutter, stirring up a short spree of whispering. “Oh… brill…” Says the pink girl, edging a little closer to Laura, who offers her a brief, mystified stare. “That sounds great…” Well, JJ, this is it. Again. It’s time to pluck up that courage and go the distance. Vampires can’t be any worse than demons, and they might not even be as bad as Creeper. And while you would very much like to avoid contact with anything remotely comparable to those two… Well. Your kind of luck is truly singular, isn’t it? “I’m gonna go have a look.” You begin to make your way up. “Wait here.” “Fuck that.” Is Marrow’s immediate response, elbowing you aside and stomping by. She has a surprising amount of heft in her. “I ain’t waitin’ on your weak-ass shit any longer.” God dammit. Why did you even tell her something was up there? >[ ] Tackle her before she does something stupid.>[ ] Let her go. Maybe she’ll fill it up.>[ ] Write in.

I have a question about Laura does she prefer to be big spoon or little spoon?
>>32026721You know, sometimes I think that all the X-Men stuff with the X logo on it is actually merchandise Xavier failed to sell.
>>32026479>16>slim slim successYou know what? That just about tears it. You jump on her, wrapping an arm around her shoulders. The two of you hit the stairs hard, forcing a stream of violent obscenity from Marrow's mouth... sorta like what happens when you step on a packet of toothpaste, except there's shit in there instead of... the paste. You’re tempted to push that thick skull of hers into the stairs, but you just about manage to reign the urge in, gritting your teeth and locking her arms at her sides. “Geroff!” She hisses, flailing mostly ineffectually. “Get your god-damn hands off me!” Jesus Christ can’t she turn down her voice? What the fuck is wrong with this woman? “Are you retarded?” You ask, in the most frank, matter of fact manner possible. You’re almost – almost – completely serious. You could almost be convinced that this is a genuinely mentally deficient person. “Are you trying to get us eaten?”“Fuck you!” She growls, managing to wriggle an elbow into your armpit, using it to wrench your arm off her. Shit – she’s seriously surprisingly strong. “I see you, you coward! You ain’t worried about gettin’ et! You just don’t have it in you to do what needs doing! You’re afraid I’ll poke a hole in this shit waitin’ for us upstairs!” Making good on her gains, she pushes off the steps, slamming you against the bannisters. They groan tenuously. You struggle against one another for a few haggard moments, her surprising reserves of strength truly testing your ability to keep her in check.>[ ] Tasers.>[ ] Breath acid or whatever it is in her face.>[ ] Keep grappling.

>>32026772>Crush the wind out of her."I'm rightfully cautious when dealing with the unknown, so calm your tits. Could be something we don't need to poke holes in, could be something we all need to work together on, but the only thing that's certain is that barging in recklessly could get someone killed."
>>32026772>Breath acid or whatever it is in her face.So this pretty much cements the fact that JJ knows he wasn't breathing fire earlier.Now, I don't think this situation calls for it, but the arguments against using the power at all kind of fall flat when even JJ realizes it's just some kind of flammable irritant and not his top phobia.

>>32026894I like this.
TASER HANDS TASERHANDS THEY DO WHATEVER A TASER HAND DOES
>>32026894>>32027053"I'm just not a murderous, short sighed, loud-mouthed cunt!"I forgot a good bit.
JJ the vagrant and pals in : Nosferatu Nonsense
>>32026894I don't like the swearing. JJ doesn't really peg me as someone who swears. Moron or idiot, sure, but not cunt.If you change it to idiot, I think it'd work.
>>32027105Well he is slowly becoming a cannibal, its obvious his morals aren't as strong as they used to be
>>32027105Nah, that's just how much he dislikes Marrow.
>>32026971He isn't sure what he breathed, but he knows (or at least thinks) that it wasn't fire. So there's really no reason not to use the level 1 dragon breath unless there's actually something capable of igniting it (and the situation calls for it).
>>32027141That is the loosest excuse I've heard.>>32027156JJ has class and was raised by good people. If he hates her so much that he'd degrade himself....yeah, just not feeling it.
>>32027141An instinctual hunger says nothing about morals.
>>32027141Can't a magical electric lizard elf/invisible solar dragon just have fun without society judging him?
>>32027206>>32027207I think the canibal thing was a joke.
>>32027243One would hope. If they were serious, they should remember that JJ stopped himself from eating the meat raw after a few seconds.
>>32027230It just dawned on me that MAYBE the solar shit would help us keep our hunger/killer croc tendencies in check. Plus, meditating with Laura in a magnificent solarium seems so cash.
>>32027243"I always wanted John to eat out of me but not like that!"badum tssh!
>>32027277We've been talking about that shit for two hours man.
>>32027296I actually just came home and read CJ's posts, sorry I missed your discussion.
I wonder if crusty passed out.
>>32027277It's a big maybe. We don't know yet whether it's just about being properly satiated or if it's some kind of psychological thing akin to Kevin's power "willing" its use.
>>32027328since he lives in England and its under sharia law, he has to pray in the direction of Mecca a lot.a minor inconvenience, bare with it.
>[X] Tasers.“Maybe not.” You grunt, keeping your arms wrapped around her. “But, I do have something in me.” “Yeah?” She jeers, slamming you back against the bannisters again. Christ she’s strong. “What’s that, then? A sugary inner core?” “Not exactly.” And then you shove as much electricity as you can straight into her chest. To her credit, it takes some time to bring her down. She shrieks and spasms in your grasp, flailing like a thing possessed. You feel odd bits of bone cut at your skin, shifting to and fro through her flesh, none of them quite fully formed. Eventually, after almost a full minute, she falls slack, her breath all clogged up like steam. You drop her, clutching at the long, bloody tears her rampant skeletal structure has cut along your chest. “Paige, seriously…” You stop to breathe for a moment. Nobody’s challenged your newfound strength like that since… ever. “…You need new friends, man.” Slumping down, you grant yourself a moment’s rest. Jesus, man, what was wrong with that chick? “Uh, dudes…” Kevin raises his voice, pointing up the stairs. You, and everyone else with functioning eyes, glance up in the direction of his gesture. A stooped, twitching silhouette stands at the top of the stairs, murmuring incoherently. You feel your clothes starting to flow against you, as if caught in an errant flux of gravity, and the steps begin to groan under your feet, long, dark cracks spreading through the woodwork… -------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ 70: END>Congratulations!

>>32027361No, I mean it's just that he's been running a lot later than he usually does.
>>32027376bank x point
>>32027376Called it.And Shadow Field.
>>32027376Oh fuck it's Rogue.
>>32027376photo 1bank remaining point
>>32027376Excellent! Evo Rogue best Rogue.You're too hard on yourself, Crusty. Good thread.Go for Shadow field.
bank or enhanced agility if we can get it
Would photosynthesis help with JJ's hunger, Crusty?>>32027376
>>32027461dealing with hunger is all photosynth can do
>>32027472>>32027461I mean like the bloodlust hunger.
>>32027461Why would he tell us?
remind me, what does photosyn do?
>>32027472He means THE HUNGER, not regular hunger.
>>32027376We gots to save her and give her hugs.
>>32027472and that's why I'll never vote for it. We're very close to earning actual cash. Why not just buy food and preserve our precious x-points. Not like we can even feed sunlight to our hobo family.
>>32027488>Why would he tell us?Because we asked.
>>32027509that's what greenfinger does ya dingus
>>32027509People want it as a gateway to druid powers, pretty much.I say we bank all the points we've got for now.
>>32027524But I'm not interested in that either anon.
>>32027376Photosynth and bank or Shadowfield.
its late (for you CJ)we're on page 9just toss up the number vote already
>>32027376Why are people voting to bank. we're about to get into an alternate version of Rogue that can't control her powers. This is no time to hold back.
>>32027527>>32027539>>32027575what are we banking for again, agility?
>>32027600>Yes, somewhat.KILL KILL EAT RAW FLESH hunger or general food hunger?
>>32027600Can we have a vote?
>Genetic Mimicry>JJ may consume the genetic material of others to take on aspects of their appearance, and even mannerisms.Well, if JJ ever goes full-on Cannibal Holocaust I suppose there's a power to support it.
Okay guys. Vote, >1 for Shadow Field>2 for Photosynthetic Physiology>3 to BankRemember the rules. Not quoting this or any other post. No greentext. Nothing but the number.
>>32027605Pumping as many points into Agility is what I'm ultimately going to vote for. There's a lot of great extrapolatives stemming from it, and combined with the contortion we got a few threads back JJ will be one slippery motherfucker.
>>32027611It helps a lot with general hunger and somewhat with [other] hunger. The less hungry you are the less likely you'll be to want to eat people.
Whats the paln for photo fags? Just get lvl 1? That seems pretty useless and I think there will be a lot of opposition if we pump all our points for the next several threads into it. >>32027686bait
>>32027724The plan would be to get it to lvl 4 so we could supercharge some of our powers.
>>32027724They want to get Photosynthetic Biology to rank 2 at the very least so they can then get Floral Affinity and then Green Finger, but I honestly have never been interested in that route at all. It just doesn't really seem to fit.
>>32027645Just got here and am completely fine with each of these options...have fun with the vote guys.
We're about to get into a fight with an out of control Rogue with unknown powers.Yes, lets not vote for something that wont help us at all.
>>32027772We adaptive, everything fits.JJ also hasn't eaten very well for several days, what hunger level are we, 6?
Into the Bank it goes!
>>32027799Well, we know she has gravity manipulation thanks to sucking off that ex-Avenger.
>>32027799The same shit can be said at the end of every damn thread.We don't need to tailor every choice to what is about to happen.Quitcher bitchin.
banking for agility so when we fail the will check we will pounce and devour people faster.I knew JJ was a people person but not like that! Oy Vey!
>that description in the archiveYou're a pretty cool guy, archive-anon.
That's it.keep on bankinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-XEINagmaU
>>32027865When will the next thread be?
Can we still get x-points after she steals our powers?
>>32027832Rank 5 agility is Spider-Man tier, right?I know it's "boring" compared to the crazier powers, but there's something to be said for mastering the physical basics. Capping out at Rank 3 Strength as well would put us right at Peter's level, if I recall correctly.
>>32027376Could that have possibly went any worse? Even with the DC pass we still managed to get caught while trying to be sneaky and knocked out a talented fighter while tiring ourselves out. Did we inadvertently do something really stupid?
>>32027896>nd knocked out a talented fighterKiller more like.
>>32027892Haven't we maxed strength already?
>>32027910Nah, we're at Rank 2.
>>32027920>>32027927huh, that might be worth investing in. Super strength has been incredibly handy. Then again, do we really need more?
>>32027896>Did we inadvertently do something really stupid?Most days.
threads like this one proves to me that giving anons a wealth of powers to choose from is invitation for headaches and a waste of time.Crusty, all that time you spent thinking up the extrapolatives and tier 2 and the pastebins that hardly anybody reads, cares , or understands could have been spent with you snogging your girlfriend.>>32027892invisible cannibal spider-man>>32027910posts like this make me think nobody reads the fucking pastebins
>>32027896>Did we inadvertently do something really stupidYes, we banked a point right before a fight because players enjoy getting our powers stolen.
>>32027958>Did we inadvertently do something really stupid?the majority voted for bank didn't they?
>>32027952>Do we need more stronk?Yes.Always.
>>32027881Hopefully early Tuesday.>>32027896You didn't do anything massively stupid. Marrow wouldn't have tried to get by you if you hadn't told everyone there was definitely something up there, but you could've still stopped her quietly and quickly with an exceptional success.
>>32027972Rogue doesn't steal powers, she copies that shit if she holds on long enough to kill your ass.
>>32028031Best theme music.
>>32027959>Invisibility>Electrical TouchOnce we get Agility and Strength maxed out (and maybe put some more points into our taser) we'll pretty much be Miles Morales.>>32027952>Then again, do we really need more?Thinking like that is just asking to get JJ put into a situation where if he had only been just a BIT stronger, he might have come out unscathed.I forget what our lifting limit is now, but the difference between Rank 2 and Rank 3 is considerable.
>>32028070Is Miles a cannibal too? Or is he just secretly gay with Ganke? I don't read Ultimate Marvel much anymore
>>32028087Nah, he's got a girlfriend and (probably) doesn't have a craving for human flesh.
>>32028070Or we could just get good enough to dodge situations that our strength can't get us through.
>>32028169That wouldn't really help us in situations like the one we literally just went through, where it came down to using our superior strength to hold someone in place.
>>32028205Not really. We tasered the fuck out of her. Could have done that ask easily by dodging, grappling and dangling her over the banister then applying the stun juice.
>>32028070with malnutrition playing a factor, I figure 3-5 tonstoo bad malnutrition limits JJ's strength.Photosynthesis and Greenfinger could probably help with that. but that's a bad thing apparently. but hey! we have a job that we could never possibly lose ever! McDonald's $1 grease menuand 7-11 twinkies for everyone!>>32028169sometimes you gotta lift shit or deal with a mugga. Like we did just this fucking thread.I'd vote strength 3 next thread (although I think photo is more useful in the immediate future)
>>32028236Sanic plsthere are more pressing concerns then go fast
>>32028236It took us a full minute to actually taser her into unconsciousness. Being strong enough to keep her from moving is what made that possible. If we hadn't been, then grappling and dangling her anywhere wouldn't have been possible either.>>32028245True, malnutrition is a factor. I agree that maxing out strength or getting agility to rank 3 next thread is probably better for us right now than photosynthetic skin, but put that way I can see the appeal of it. It's not like JJ isn't spending most of his time outside walking around in broad daylight anyway.
>>32028309Photosynth will technically lessen all DCs, so it's a buff to everything and later we can super-charge stuff with it too. Even a few points in it give us something.
>>32028365>Photosynth will technically lessen all DCswut
>>32028309JJ could be fed by merely sunbathing.and personally, that nebulous "better shit to level" argument is weak. that list expanding and expanding and expanding and expanding. getting sick of it.did we really need contortion?I guess I could back strength 3, the jump in power is substantial enough.regardless, the support for photosynthesis (and maybe druid) is growing, Crusty's slow pacing ( 3 threads and still same day in game) and the promise of more x points then the first chapter leave me hopeful
