Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=homeless+mutant+questPastebins:http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFighttp://pastebin.com/98mpGLrhYou are John James Green, mutant vagrant.You are descending. The dark is old and musty, like something left down here to die, like a heady cough. You’re used to being able to see in low-light, but this is no-light, every step taking you further and further from the surface. You feel vaguely as though you’re transitioning into another world – around you, beyond the omnipresent gloom, you hear the earth whispering in its sleep, roots stretching, worms rasping and struggling through the old loam. Old. This is all old. You remember Creeper telling you once that there are ancient tunnels under New York, that the city is just as deep as it is tall, that nobody could possibly keep a track of everything everyone’s ever buried in this town. For a short, breathless moment or two, you feel as though you’re descending deeper than you could possibly be, that you’re about to start hearing the grinding of the earth’s bones, and the steady rhythm of its blood, and the tap-tap-tapping of dead men, digging desperately and blindly for a way up, a way back into the light. You’d shiver if it wasn’t so damn humid down here. Your phone vibrates in its pocket. Down here, the pale light of the screen seems almost chthonic. Laura and Lucas have apparently met up with the Hellions. Okay.Further ahead, you smell an abundance of rust, and you manage to stop yourself a few paces from walking straight into a tall, solid iron door. You reach out, tracing your fingers along its time-stricken surface, taking in the tiny inflections of its shape. It’s not thick, just heavy. It is pretty clearly locked, however.>Hunger Level: 2>Current Funds: $0.00>Present Time: 23:35 >[ ] Try to force your way through.>[ ] Look around for another way in.>[ ] Turn back. >[ ] Write in.

>>32613335Seconded.>"Hey, guys? There's something weird going on and I wouldn't mind backup."(Also, to the Anon that runs the playlist, one video got deleted.)
I knew that if we bought strength 3 everyone would give up on stealth. I didn't realize I would be proven correct so fast.
>[x] Look around for another way in.No need to alert every goon of our presence. This is a reconnaissance mission JJ.
>>32613267Also Crusty, holy heck man you are descriptive>You feel vaguely as though you’re transitioning into another world – around you, beyond the omnipresent gloom, you hear the earth whispering in its sleep, roots stretching, worms rasping and struggling through the old loam. Old. This is all old. You remember Creeper telling you once that there are ancient tunnels under New York, that the city is just as deep as it is tall, that nobody could possibly keep a track of everything everyone’s ever buried in this town.This right here captured the tone, Creeper, the current environment, etc. It paints a very neat picture

>>32613267Can I suggest turning the scales into an actual defense mechanism? Scales can grow out at well, serve as a buffer, becoming more durable at higher levels and even being heal-able.I can try providing a more concise, level-to-level outline if you guys want.

>>32613468Seconded so fucking much.
>>32613471We might not. Crusty has stated that he will cut us off at some point.
>>32613468I can do this.
>>32613471Pretty sure Batman doesn't rip huge iron doors out of their frames. And also has various lockpicks, screwdrivers, acids, misc. tools to make it easier and quieter.

>>32613501He said that before and kept giving us more.>>32613521Nah, he just kicks on it then pulls it off when it's more removable.
>>32613521We should get some batman tools. Or at least a grappling hook, and something we can put in front of bluets/stuff.Plan get steel bracers with grappling hook (with electric cable for rope for shocking) go ?
Suggestion for the playlist, though the girl is more a symbol for JJ's ideal life>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rsqg95anNw
>>32613447>we are on a time limitno we are not. We were on a time limit for meeting with the Hellions because we told them we would be there at specific time. The plan was; we only went into the building for recon then we get out and the Hellions burn the place down. They'll burn it down whenever we tell them to. No time limit.Smashing the door down and alerting everyone that we're here is bad.
>>32613558Actually we are, they said they'll call us before they blow the place to shit, they are still gonna blow it if we are inside
>>32613501I think that was before the incident with Broseph, but more to the point I think he clarified that we would be cut off until we resolved or triumphed over some personal trial, and then we would start building up x-points again.
>[X] Try to force your way through.Well, you overcame several very primal fears to get here. You’re pretty sure you should be able to overcome a door. Feeling for hinges, you brace your shoulder against the opposite side, such your breath in, and put your back into a single, mighty heave. The door groans inwards surprisingly easily, metal hinges snapping free. It doesn’t quite go down in one push, just sag pathetically, but another two significantly less determined shoves later it keels straight over. You cringe as the sound echoes through the dark. Didn’t think about that. The prospect of being caught freezes you up for a moment, but as the seconds stretch on into minutes, it becomes steadily clearer that nobody’s coming. You breathe out a heavy, long sigh of relief, and feel your way further in. The ground is level now, but the walls are still close. As you make your way deeper, an obscene, caustic sort of scent washes over you, growing thicker with every step. You couldn’t quite describe it if you tried – not totally. It’s like something bloated and foul just opened up and shat out a little spurt of all the worst things in life. It’s not rot, but it reminds you of rot. Reminds you of death. Eventually the smell gets so bad that you have to stop for a moment, just to keep yourself from heaving up all over the floor. It’s almost like some kind of torture, like Creeper designed this place with you in mind. It’s awful. When you collect yourself enough to continue, you realize that the air is changing, that the corridor is opening out. And you can hear heartbeats – twenty of them, at least, the dark magnifying them into a heavy, operatic rhythm. >[Action]
>>32613468Do this.To everyone complaining that strength will completely rule out stealth, just remember that Laura could still kick our ass along with a bunch of other people and we're not really less susceptible to injury. I see strength more for utility then just straight up combat.
>>32613558>They'll burn it down whenever we tell them to. No time limit.>“Alright, then. Be there on time. By twelve the place will be a crater, whether or not you show up.” >http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31521400/#p31524113
>>32613600listen closer.the heartbeats? slow? fast? any other sounds?
>>32613600>Invisible>Heatscan>Climb on ceiling?
>>32613600>[Action]Use our heatvision and hearing to see where exactly they are and what else is around us.
>>32613530That still seems like it's quieter to break into the world's most escapable nut-house than break though a sealed underground bunker.>>32613545Grapple hook isn't necessary with adhesive touch and wings. Bullet shield could just weigh us down when we could dodge, but I do agree for rope because this is /tg/. Rope is always useful.Although cases where we REALLY need a shield can be solved by temporarily taking a manhole cover or ripping off a car door.
>>32613600Go invisible, get as close as we can. Either there's a second way into wherever we are or whatever is down here may not be exactly human.
>>32613600>>[Action]Invisible, focus senses, sneak towards the heartbeats. We're here to investigate - investigate.
Rolled 17>>32613626Sounds good. Also call in the Hellions, prompt them to make their move. We'll crush those little soldiers between us.
>>32613615That was if we didn't sow up at all. We did show up and we asked them to wait. They said OK. Now they are waiting.Source; The last thread.
>>32613678They're not gonna wait for long.

>>32613600Go invisible. When they get close enough...www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqQuihD0hoI
>>32613669Kinda think the phone things are a bad idea in the dark, since light-up screens make a nice target direction. But I REALLY want to use adhesive touch for stealth.
>>32613669The Hellions are gonna raze the building to the ground. We're still in the building. We should probably hold off on that call.
>>32613626That, and text Laura that we're picking up twenty heart beats.
>>32613640This. Why the hell is everyone jumping into combat mode. Our friends don't even know we're under ground. Is it that hard to send them a text to let them know what's going on?
>>32613696They will if burning the place upstairs does absolutely nothing to Creeper's operation, given it's a scab.
>>32613705We can make the phone invisible.>>32613640Seconded
>>32613678>Julian’s eyes linger on your frayed garments a moment. “Yeah, but you best be out by”– –“The time Solana unloads, right?” Brian finishes the sentence for him, delving into his pants for a phone. “One sec, lemme drop my number on you, so you can give us a bell when the time’s right. You don’t wanna be in there when Solana does her thing.” http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/32467468/#p32470891no u

>>32613547well JJ has plenty of self loathing and that song is pretty much considered an anthem for self loathing. added.also adding the other one (I posted it, I just wanted some opinions on it)Also... I think I found the theme for Laura then again, I just marathoned most of Kill La Kill Wednesday so maybe I should take a step backhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5R7Ae4pwMf0
>>32613713They are only going to raze the building if we tell them to. If we tell them the building is empty do you honestly think they are going to raze an empty building? How stupid do you think they are?Tell them where the tunnel is. Then they follow us down the tunnel.
>>32613640Yeah, we'll need the backup.Seconded.
>>32613778>kill la killno
>>32613735do we still have reception?
>>32613782>They are only going to raze the building if we tell them to.Like Julian will listen to us.
>>32613735I thought we let them know before we went on down? Along with telling them there is an underground bunker brb.>>32613747Fair enough. Texting should be fine then, no sound things though. Not even having the phone on vibrate.
>>32613782I think we texted them just before we entered the trapdoor, detailing it's location in case they have to follow us.
>writanOh, also, the Relationships area of the character sheet is currently being updated. Remind me if I've missed anyone.
I realize that Crusty is probably already writing the update by now. But in the last thread JJ sensed some of the electricity going upstairs. Even if the main floor was empty there still might be something up there. It might be a good idea to have Laura check it out before meeting up with us in the tunnel.>>32613805We got a text from them right before we busted down the door. So there is reception there
>>32613830I'd have figgered Marrow would have been the first one at -1 [Hater]
>>32613830>We basically ate Marrow>Level 1 [Acquainted]Y-you too
>>32613830Thanks Crusty, I appreciate it. What about the stats like courage, etc.? I know our agility has gone up quite a bit
>>32613645We just need weight. Grappling hook can be used to pull people, or to hook someone for constant shock. More utility than just weight.We need permanent bracer, for when we go inside/put down the manhole cower.Also we need rebar and manhole cower(s) to make cool shield. Remember we have strength , so we can theoretically use actual wall, or car as a cower now. Iron man suit without engine is an actual option.We should just get some non clanky armor, (basically we just leave our joints exposed., and wrap metal (that's wrapped in cloth). around chest, arms and legs, No speed loss because strength, and we are resistant to most stuff.
>>32613868Thats some kinky shit man
>>32613600>Gather info (senses)>Go get backup.
>>32613868I just met you, and this is crazy.I went Kaiju, your face is tasty?>vocookin myself indeed, captcha.>>32613887We DO have subdermal armor thanks to mugga powers.
>Our group is called Tunnel Snakes RuleMy fucking sides
Pretty sure we broke into the place where Creeper keeps people on his shit list.I wonder how many new roomies we'll be getting?
>>32613830Blonde Phantom herslef.
>>326139302 layers of armor are better than one. I am thinking protection from Poisonous spikes(syringes, claws) and shit.We get the manhole cower for bullets, and metal for not getting doped.We should get gas mask/wet face bandana too. We get knocked out with gas a lot.
I vaguely would like to get echolocation for scenarios like this. But thermal vision usually should make do.
>>32613977>manhole cover>not pic reltaed
>>32613977We should get bottle mask for carrying, Idk how big one tho.I bring one to each riot.
>>32614003We can add manhole cowers to car door.Magnificent.
>>32613977>getting gassed once is a lotwanting to be prepared is fine but don't embellish things
>>32614048its been at 3 for ages anon
>>32613977Oh, we definitely need a gas-shield. Maybe some goggles to block tear gas/pepper spray?
>>32614071Sorry I misread the character sheet. I thought it said we were at 2. Disregard post.
>>32614094Agreed. We should try to make friends with her after spazzing out and breaking her arm with a tree. Muggas gotta stick together.
>>32614094He missed Kimura also. I want to know how far negative we are.
>>32614126at least negative 2
>>32614126It'd be kinda funny if she's at, or will be if we beat her around in a fight, like level 2 or whatever and is oddly tsundere to JJ.Not something I want to happen, but the idea is hilarious.
>>32614073Ski goggles? Sunglasses+ anti peeper seal.Alternatively motorbike helmet.
>>32614158I don't want to see her love taps...
>>32614158I would pay money for Kimura to be tsundere for JJmainly so I can see her and Laura fight over him

>(1/2)The feeling isn’t a good one. It’s not fear, exactly – you’re used to fear. It’s dread. A lingering, cloying dread that nuzzles up against you in its rags and its wet furs, murmuring indecipherable somethings through cold, paralytic lips. Its fear divorced from any object, from anything tangible. Pure.It doesn’t stop you. It probably should, but it doesn’t. Though, does give a long enough moment of indecision to withdraw your phone and quickly update Laura on the situation. Stowing your phone away, you decide to get a bird’s eye – or, at least, a fly’s eye – view of the place. You flex your fingers, feeling that strange, electrical warmth propagate under the skin, and feel for the nearest wall. It doesn’t take you long to stick your way up onto the ceiling (which, by the way, feels very weird. Humans clearly weren’t meant to challenge gravity in this specific way). You almost bump into the frame of a long, presently unlit, fluorescent light, but crawl over (under? Around?) it. You’re probably about three, three and a half meters up? Something like that.God. God – the smell is worse. It’s like something from the beginning of time. Like you’re smelling the slow decay of the universe.Blinking slowly, you twist your vision into the thermal spectra. You pick up a lot of heat signatures below – one for each heartbeat. None of them are mobile. Their personal coronas of shifting yellow-red warmth bleed out into their surroundings, revealing the vaguely humanoid figures to be stretched across a procession of tables – solid metal, if the way heat stews in them is any indication.Beyond the heartbeats, you can hear the steady, rhythmic murmur of machines. The miniscule drip-drip-drips of fluids struggling their way through plastic packets. Reminds you – reminds your of your mother’s room, of the sounds the machines made when they were hooked up to her. You don’t think you want to be here anymore.
>>32614184Honestly I just think it'd be a funny thing to happen, or at least have for a short omake.>>32614182Her idea of foreplay is giving JJ a hard smack in the crotch with her knuckles.
>>32614175Possibly. Goggles would be easier to carry around than a helmet though. I think we need to think of a stealth loadout we can have at most times or make from nearby items.

>>32614454Joseph confirmed that Jack was manufactured synthetically a while ago, in thread 56. Just before going intergalactic on Laura and cudda's ass.>>30742976>“Of course it did. This protein we’re swimming in here would make a fantastic base for it!” His voice trails off into a warbling, good-mannered laugh. “The people your employer stole the formula from got it from me, you know? Jack was my first attempt at a supersoldier serum. Not exactly a success, but certain a profitable mista”–
>>32614334Husk seems rated high for the number of times she Leeroy Jenkins'd us.
>>32614712I'm guessing she feels bad about it
>>32614712We did help find the "vampire" and we did get her to safety when said "vampire" was freaking the fuck out.Plus, we were nice. Marrow's the dumb cunt in that group, so far.
>>32614705Right, it's created synthetically, but we don't know what compounds are used for the drug in making it. My guess? Some lymph-node fluid or blood from certain x-gene carriers
>>32614750>My guess? Some lymph-node fluid or blood from certain x-gene carriersX-gene carrier stem cells, maybe?

>>32614785>>32614787Well I'm blind
>>32614705Thank you. A couple of threads ago someone kept saying Jack was made from JJ juice. He didn't believe anyone that said Typhon invented it. I knew the truth but I didn't want to go digging through the archives to find that quote.I hate digging through the archives just to prove someone wrong.
>>32614728>>32614731Yeah. That'll be hilarious when we meet her again.It's just that she keeps attacking us at the drop of a hat, seems like she'd be at rank 0 despite knowing us. We keep helping her despite her attacking, but we ate Marrow and she doesn't really seem to trust us anyways.
>>32614803I'd be willing to accept constant attacks from her as a running gag
>>32614826I'm not, if she attacks us we should fucking murder her
>>32614803>>32614826If we become friends, her constantly attacking us every time we show up is more of a friendly in-joke.
>>32614826I'd be down for that. Especially if JJ keeps stopping her casually while also trying to calm her shit.
>>32614803considering all the powers we pulled out while marrow was right friggin there watching, i would think the whole group would be a little wary of us
>>32614803>We keep helping her despite her attackingThis is why she's at level 1. We were probably at -1 or 0 before the vampire incident. Then it when up to 1 after we were such a nice guy.
>>32614802Nowhere does it say in that statement what chemical compounds he uses to make Jack, just that he was the one who invented it. For all we know, Joseph uses fluids from mutants because that is where the chemical for Jack is naturally produced.
>>32614767I still don't understand this gif
>(1/2)>[X] There’s a light. There must be a light switch. You can’t stop listening to the machines. You know them – they’re like old acquaintances. Uncles, aunts. Figures, leering vaguely through the dark. You remember them arrayed like idolaters, like ceremonial virgins, like executioners. You hold your breath, trying to block out the awful, awful, rancid horror of the smell, and brush it all aside.You make your way down, feeling your way along the walls until your fingers trace their way around the outline of a light switch. You feel your stomach churn, almost as if preparing for the inevitable. You bite your lip, and bite, and bite, and are a little surprised when you taste iron.You feel yourself flick the lights on as an echo along your arm, as if you’re observing it from a great distance.
>>32614890>Then it when up to 1 after we were such a nice guy.We did eat Marrow. But Husk probably doesn't like Marrow. Just because you're on the same team as someone doesn't mean you have to like them.
>(2/2)The closest sleeper – they’re sleeping, or something like that – seems sort of okay at a glance. He’s a young man in his late teens, probably around your age. Square jaw, eyes closed in placid blindness. His shoulders stretch out into tell-tale, mutated appendages, sort of like weird bone-feelers. They dangle at his side like discarded lengths of rope. The machines dig into him, an IV standing at his side, a monitoring device looming beside it. And he’s been cut into, often. His stomach is dominated by a long, expertly sewn caesarean, the rugged edges of the wound suggesting that it’s been opened over and over and over…The one next to him is – oh, oh Christ – you – you – You almost keel over, stomach writhing. An unreasoning, primal sort of repulsion comes over you, like a sudden fever, like bad meat. The image of her face – of that horrific, cancerous atrocity – seethes to the forefront of your mind, infecting everything it touches, its bloated girth forcing all other thoughts aside. She’s not dead. None of them are dead. She’s not dead, but she’s rotting. You fall to your knees and vomit noisily. A specific scent cuts through the cloying vileness of the place. Smells like that stuff you woke up in, back at the factory. That clear, amniotic sorta stuff. Christ. >[Action]
>>32614947vomit some morecall the gang in, we need help getting these poor SOBs outta here
>>32614947>[Action]They don't deserve this.Give them release from this hell they've been subjected to.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM8bTdBs-cw
>>32614947>tell the boys that you want this place in ashes, nothing left>Nothing.
>>32614947Phone the team and tell them what you found
>>32614947Call laura and the big beefy guy inwere getting these guys outta here
>>32614947>Wait for the Hellions and Laura, they have to see this to believe it
>>32614987They are rotting, you don't get to live after rotting
>>32614947Take pictures, text them to Laura and Julian.Even though Hellion can be an ass, I doubt he wants these guys blown up.Just lurk in the shadows until they get down here.
>>32614981I think we should keep looking around, in case there are more or anything that can give us information about Creeper's movements like papers or whatever.1610-Kingpin and Nixon recorded their every move, because they thought they were untouchable. Maybe Creeper is the same.
>>32614947call it in? theres not a whole lot of options
>>32614947Call Laura and tell her to come down. She has more experience with this kind of stuff.
>>32614947Breathe in through your mouth, count to four, breathe out, count to four.Then turn around, get out, and tell sun-girl to pump as much of her crazy powers into the depths of the facility until there's absolutely nothing left.
>>32614947this is what would have happened to our neighbors in the scar if we didn't open the box.text some pics
>>32614987>were getting these guys outta hereAnd do what to them?I doubt they want to live after this.Just give them sweet death. Plus they're fucking rotting already.
>>32614947>Call it in.Should we get cops in on this, anonymously? Like public payphone, news crews and everything, just sic them on Creeper.Also?>Keep all senses out for Typhon and/or Creeper.
>>32614947We need pictures.Call ze 'ellions
>>32615005>>32614981>>32614980Only one of them is rotting, and it's probably her mutant power.Her horrible, horrible power.
You know what would be nice for them? If we had healing vitae. This is the only time I considered it.
>>32615008Seconded.>>32615048She's rotting because she's sick and most likely going to die.
>>32615048>Rot Woman, with the power to...rot!
>>32615033Maybe they don't, maybe they doDon't be so quick on the trigger
>>32615048I really doubt that, I really really doubt that
>>32614947Get some pictures with your phone, send them to Laura, then call her up and ask if she has any idea what the fuck is happening to them. This situation warrants more then a text message.
>>32615035do you sincerely believe Creeper is hanging out in this room waiting specifically for JJ instead of his nice smelling office running his organization and dealing with the gang war?
>>32615060I think they're beyond saving, honestly.>>32615072>Maybe they don't, maybe they doWhy would they want to?Would you want ot live after this?
>>32614947Nope.We're leaving. Now. Call Laura, give her some panicked, "I'm leaving now," gibberish, and RUN DAMMIT RUN!!!"
>>32615033Did you not read the first guy's description?He's not decaying.
>>32615072Would you want to keep living after rotting, I wouldn't
>>32615082give them a fucking chance dude
>>32615065Even worse than Tar-zan, whose flesh is tar.>>32615081Paranoia is the name of the game. Creeper is everywhere.
>>32615089Maybe he's "fresher" than her.
>>32614947I'm surprised at all the people calling for a mercy kill, when the IVs are indicating most of these people are alive. We have no idea if they are cognitive, in a coma, if they are in lots of pain, or ANYTHING yet people are all for murdering like twenty people without further investigation.
>>32615082You'd be surprised how strong the will to live can be in some people.
>>32615074No one else was said to be decaying, they're just strapped to tables.Stop being stupid.
>>32614947>>[Action]Call the others.Nobody should have to see this, but dammit, they need to.
>>32614947Call in the others, tell them we have civilians, warn them only folks with a strong stomach should come down.we need to find out what is happening here.
>>32615082I'd prefer freedom over death.
>>32615110I think a lot of people in this thread are thinking about as clearly as JJ is right now. Which is to say, not at all.Laura and the Hellions need to see pictures of this, the entire situation has completely changed.
>>32615135Seconded.While I do want to mercykill them, let's at least show them what's going on and get their opinions.
>>32615127Because someone mutated the power to rot to death, yes that would happen
some music for the scenehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmInl6uqWps
>>32615108Except the QM said "she's" rotting, not "they're" rotting.Stop being retarded and quiet your euthanasia boner.
>>32615110Seriously. Keep these muggas alive, try to help as many of them heal as possible, have an extremely pissed-off army of muggas. Although they are giving me flashbacks to Bonesaw from Worm.
It's only a mercykill if there's no hope for recovery.
>>32615158Are you retarded? Yes, someone would develop the power to rot while living,that is exactly the kind of shit the X-Gene can grant.
>>32615065>Implying she's not a Nurglette
>>32615183Okay, well, if they were actually strapped down and their organs and nervous system were laid out all over the room and shit, THEN I could be convinced to mercy kill them. But most of them are probably not beyond help.Sorry Grue.
>>32614947So yeah, anti-voting killing them, call this in, maybe see if we can wake up the most intact one (we do seem familiar with these systems).
>>32615158There was a dude who was literally a skeleton floating in jelly, so yea. You can get a really shitty power.
No I am really sad we didn't buy Healing Vitae.
Should Lucas see this?on one hand, its like Auschwitz down in herethe other hand, this could have been him, he has a right to know...
>>32615229Some of them might be missing kidneys, but likely these guys are just put on tap for various fluids (blood, brain/spinal fluids, mugga juice).>>32615249Oh yeah, Beaky's power is to be a malformed Chicken-Man.
>>32615300>Oh yeah, Beaky's power is to be a malformed Chicken-Man.Kentucky Fried Progeria
>>32615300still managed to get laid
>>32615285It wasn't even an option in the final vote. Even if it was only like two people would have voted for it. People only care about combat powers.
>>32615286Laura yes, Hellions yes, Lucas maybe. This is traumatic as shit, kinda want to have Lucas "keep watch" but rub this in Julian's face as fuel on the fire and a lesson in making sure the target's clear before striking.
>>32615286Maybe just let him see the pictures. I don't think he really needs to be subjected to the smells and sounds that accompany it.
>>32615327And brooded a swarm of flocking bug-bird-kids. Some powers really suck, but he's got personality.
shitshitshitshitshitshitshitThe first dude, it looks like he has been harvested from constantly. Maybe he can pull through once we get him off whatever is keeping him sedated.Subject 02, I don't think there's much hope for her.Upstairs is probably a modem sending medical and status info to Creeper.
This stuff is familiar to JJ somehow, right?Would it be possible for him to make a medicine check to see if he can fix them up.
>>32615444>This stuff is familiar to JJ somehow, right?Read the thread and the backlog. Don't just jump in now.
after this is all over, we can save the images and send them to a newspaper with the story.The more open and despicable we make this shit, the harder it will be on creeps.
>>32615444Maybe on how to start or stop the machines, but I wouldn't be sure about this kind of first aid opportunities.
A couple of threads ago we earned 3 points in one thread. One for the thread, one for exercising our powers and one for acing Crusty's quiz.It probably wont happen. But If it did we could just buy Healing vitae and save all of them.
>>32615474I think we all agree on that part.
>>32615444I think JJ could maybe possibly smell if there are any anaesthesia in effect here. It wouldn't be peasant, though.
>>32615487I think they're beyond saving at this point.
>>32615474Agreed, have Pete forward this shit up to the Daily Bugle, this shit needs to be spread around
>>32615487Not that I don't agree with you in wanting Healing Vitae and giving these people some help, but how would JJ make the conclusion that his blood could heal?
>>32615487Had a double feature last time, but there might be a quiz for the table folks, so let's start looking. Then the problems of JJ finding that particular power.>>32615522Give them a shot, Healing factor 2 can bounce back from quite a bit, hell, if we're lucky there could be a healer in the bunch. Or a power booster, or something.We wake them up, the ones that start screaming "Please kill me" or something I might consider an actual mercykill instead of murder-hobo.
>>32615522Sure thing, Rorschach
>>32615595our senses will let us know which are beyond saving.If they are missing organs then they will give off certain smells.
>>32615595You can't save everyone, Anon.>>32615615>bunch of people laid out on medical tables>lots of scars and tubes in them>Oh, I'm sure they'll be fine!
>>32615570The beautiful writings of Crusty having JJ discover this by cutting his hand on a machine and noticing his blood lands on a mugga who heals? Or some similar discovery moment to all our other powers.
>(1/2)>[X] Call Others You – you breathe. You wipe the sticky remnants of the vomit from your mouth and try to ignore the taste. It’s not that bad. Not that bad. You’ve vomited in your mouth before. It’s not that bad. The breath sagging back and forth in your chest, you pull yourself up, and force yourself to look again. The others – the others are in varying states of silent, comatose helplessness. Some are obviously mutants, some aren’t so blatant, but you’d hazard a guess that everyone in here has an X-gene hidden somewhere in their DNA. A good many appear to be in sort of okay condition – they don’t look hurt, aside from the incisions. They’re pale and their breath is barely a hint of a whisper, but they’re alive. The others… the others aren’t just rotting. They’re unfurling, gestating, collapsing, seething through the borders of their own flesh. Their meat decays even as it mutates haphazardly outward, forming twisted, tumorous shapes that make your skin feel alien and cold. There’s one – you find one that, it’s not even recognizable anymore, it’s just spindles of flesh and bone, creasing and contorting, like someone stapled together all kinds of disparate creatures and just blew them all up, and – and somehow – sort of froze it still, in that initial, flicker-instant of writhing shapelessness, everything not quite together but not quite apart. God. You clap your hand over your mouth. Oh, God, Christ…
>>32615570In all honesty if I had healing factor in real life. The possibility that it could heal others would probably be the second or third thing that crossed my mind.It's not that big of a leap.
>(2/2)You have to tell the others about this. You reach down into your pocket, fumbling with your phone for a few seconds, fingers feeling almost detached from your body, like all the blood’s just drained right out of them…Before you can navigate your way to a number, a text pops up in the corner of the screen. >Sender: Unknown. Pausing, you open the message, the timing setting you a little on edge. It’s probably just something silly. Like a survey or something. >I know you’re there. You feel your stomach clench up and your skin crawl. Dropping down low, you glance frantically from one side of the drab little chamber to the other. Nobody. Nobody awake, anyway. >I can feel you.

>>32615671I'm really wishing we had the healing blood right about now.
>>32615698Your body has metabolic processes linked to each organ, remove the organ and the prerequisite molecules to these processes build up in the blood and sweat.Its a bit like how wolves can tell a prey animal is ill, the body gives off scents of these molecules as indicators. And we have a set of smell much more potent than the best dog.Though i will admit we would need to practice this.

>>326159893 times over 75 threadsI don't get why people are so hella mad over this
>>32616027All we had going in was "20 heartbeats", to err on the side of caution during a recon mission before sink-holing a building is a good idea. You're right about us being lucky, not like these muggas.
>>32615964To be fair there very well could have been people on the other side or a security system we didn't know about. Just because it worked out well this time doesn't mean it will next time. It'a always better air on the side of caution.It's safe to say the one that's just a writhing mass of flesh is probably beyond saving. But the one's that are rotting but still human looking could probably be saved by healing vitae.
>>32616081Seriously, it's JJ lightening the mood. It made sense at the time and in context.>>32616031I'd vote for it when approps.

Who is best girl?
>[X] Contact others.>[X] Ask who this is.You calm down as much as you can. You remind yourself that, if someone was there, you’d hear them coming long before they saw you. Hell, you’d probably smell them – even through all this sickness in the air. You compose a quick text to Laura, telling her that she and the Hellions should be down here right now, and flick back to the anonymous message. Who are you? You get a reply not three seconds after you hit Send. >Next to the right hand wall, three from the door.>Don’t remember name. Haven’t heard words in so long. All ones and zeroes to me, now.Oh God. You make your way along the rows. Soon enough you find the table, and you – You feel something like a grunt, something like a sob, something you don’t know how to express. Something. The body is that of a boy’s, but it’s basically nothing now. Nothing remotely human. Nothing that could ever walk again, or feel again, or touch or talk or probably even breathe on its own.Another text follows the last. >They increase my dosage when I try to talk.>You’re different, though. Your message history is different. You have friends.You slump down to the ground and feel hot, thick tears cluster up behind your eyes. You have to reply.

>>32616085Personally I'd say try cautiously waking rot-girl to see whether she's just got a shitty power or is seriously dying by degrees. One person better be on that sedative switch if she's in need of a mercy killing though, not gonna have her awake for that. Turns out she's Lady Deadpool.

>>32616156"How can i help?"it is very JJ.
>inb4 just "you can't"
>>32616371Healing factor 2 got JJ cured of 3rd degree burns over night
Posting my questions now since I don't think I'll be around when the thread ends.How did JJ survive the Ultimatum wave? (I think I may have asked this before, not sure)It would be funny if, in 1610, JJ was a university student and friends with Eddie Brock Jr. Like Human!JJ, not like our JJ but in 1610 universe.Is JJ more flammable now that he's part plant?I take back what I said about wanting Asian Wasp. Please use EMH Wasp instead.If JJ got the Horns extrapolative, would they look like a smaller version of Loki's horns?What strength level was Joyce at the last time we saw her?Despite its probably short length, how awesome would a fight with Riastrad JJ and the Hulk be?Does JJ have any aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. on his mother's side?Is the Russian (comic version) on the Random Encounter Table?How much have JJ's experiences aged him emotionally? Like how old does he act?When did the FF first appear in HMQverse?If JJ started using a bow & arrow now, how good would he be? And how good could he be after training at it?What level of Agility is Ricochet at?
>>32616411>implying Crusty would have the worst event ever in this
If nothing else, I think this thread will give JJ the resolve to take Creeper down, no matter what. This HAS to stop, not just in a moralfag kind of way, but as a matter of self-preservation.
>>32616156>>[ ] “What is this place?”Seems most important
>>32616407Those burns where caused by hell fire. In the marvel universe, mutant powers are less effect against hell fire than normal fire.Crusty said in one of his after thread Q&A's that JJ would have healed faster if it had been normal fire.
>>32616550So what you're saying is, healing vitae might really help some of these poor sods.
>>32616575might have. too late to spec into it now.
>>32616407Yeah, it's fairly potent. Not quite regrowing lost limbs from scratch, but I'd say it would heal enough to maybe get some of the moderately bad cases to medical attention. And given that they've been like this a while, maybe have a longer treatment for some?
>>32616575I doubt it. JJ fruit might though
>>32616575Remember the last thread?You can't save everyone.

It’d mean following up and – and, you don’t know, bashing the remains of his skull in, or something, though, so you don’t. You’re not sure you’re ready for that.What is this place, you type.

We're looking at a majority of relatively healthy people. >>32616721Again. 17-18 out of 20 is good odds for those that haven't been outright described as "Shit's bad, yo".

are you sure?
>>32616727Can we send a picture on our phone?>I'm sorry. Is this you?
>>32616727I think we can unhook them. I'm assuming that whatever happened to them has weakened them enough that we don't have to worry about them as a threat.
>>32616727"You'd die without the equipment. We need to get you to a hospital."
>>32616782This.A thousand times this.Julian you shitlord, you NEED to see this.

>>32616851Not gonna make it, better to call Julian and tell him that Creeper's got kids down here in some sick lab.
>>32616851They're dead weight.
>>32616899Technically he has a face. It's just a horrific mass of distorted, rotting tumors.
>>32616913We can bench press a bus, what is this dead weight you speak of?

>>32616904Yes. Do this while unhooking. It's pretty much the least we can do.
>>32616913We can can carry 7000 pounds comfortably man.
We can unhook him later, Laura wants us out and we should get out. Why is letting him out a priority, especially since he acts so iffy? DOes everyone actually want us to get attacked by tumor man?
>>32616782Tell him there are mutants down here in serious need of help. And make sure to actually call.I forget, does Julian actually care about mutants in this setting, or is he just on a big power trip?
>>32616727>Text him a picture of himself
>>32616727Get out, but call as we move, tell them the situation.
>>32616986>We can unhook him laterNot if the whole basement is about to become molten slag.
>>32616977Really, we have a damn good excuse to get Julian to stop, and if he sink holes this place on top of the ones that have a chance to live then I think we've got the perfect discovery method for our new strength level. Beating him with his own spine.
>>32616990Bit of A bit of B
>>32616990If he's on a big power trip, I think we ought to feast on him. Massive dickhead.
>>32616990he seemed approving when JJ demanded that they don't deal Jack
>>32616986The kid is panicking with the first person to communicate with him in forever being able to get him out of his coma. Our priority should be stop the hellions from killing everybody in here, which is either full super-sprint or call them and tell them shit is fucked up but no guards here so turn their vandalism into rescue op.
>>32616931To make sure that everyone is experiencing the appropriate level of horror and disgust, I suggest you do a Google image search on tumors
>>32616727...fucking Hellions.>>[ ] Action.Unhook him. Start walking. Call Julian, make him stop.If he doesn't? By the time we're out, I'd think we'd be pissed enough to punch right through his smug, brainless head.
>>32616851>>32616964This. Even if he can't walk. Technopath is grade A power. With our strength he weighs as much as an ant.
>>32617006How long does it fucking take to yank some wires? Whats are you worried about, HURTING him? Theres not much we can do to the guy at this point thats going to make it worse.
>>32617076Yea, though Creeper was pro-mutant as well and if he seems to be just as ruthless as creeper, I don't see any further use for him.
>>32617093Walking? Strength + Agility enhancement, hell, + Wings mean decent speed. But Calling = yes. Maybe even get Technopath to start contacting some of our contacts, Laura, the Hellions, Lucas.
What makes you think Julian is the one cal;ling the shots here? I think it's more likely we tripped an alarm and the cops/anti mutant police sentinels are on their way here.
>>32617167I'm guessing an impending boss battle is coming.
>>32617167if its an outside force, its Creeper's goons
>>32617108It takes time that could be spent getting molten slag or earthquakes to not happen. >>32617167Mostly because he did literally say that he would level the place whether or not we were in there. Plus Laura would likely mention such important matters.

>>32617243Not really sure what that means, unless it's referring to the wire pulling that still takes time to reach over when we should be running.
>>32617264These are not solid metal constructs.
>>32617301Way too expensive.

>>32617301eventually, one day
>>32616851The weight isn't a problem. We only have two hands and human bodies are awkwardly shaped for carrying. I'm thinking we'll only be able to take two or three. But thechnopath is definitely a priority.>>32617264Ya, level 1 claws are next to useless. Level 2 claws could probably dig through anything.
>>32617323I believe it was mentioned that if we wanted to dig a tunnel by hand that claws 2 would allow it.

>(1/2)>[X] Call Julian. >[X] Unhook.Before you even know what you’re doing, you’ve torn the drip from his neck. The wound bubbles and releases a thick, foul-smelling gel, like something you’d find on the underside of a boil. Man, what are you even doing? He’s not going to walk again. He’s not going to move again. If he wakes up – if he’s even capable of waking up, at this point – he’s not going to be doing much but writhing in blind pain for the rest of his life. Thankfully, he doesn’t stir. The drug obviously requires some time to wear off. Right. Right, that gives you time, time to think, time to – You call Julian. Technically, you call Brian, but it’s Julian you want to shout at.“Hey man you really wanna get out right”– Brain’s voice is cut short as someone snatches the phone from him. You can hear people whispering, someone doing some light threatening, before Laura’s voice fills the receiver. Is it just you, or is her voice a note higher than usual?

You need to leave.” You feel yourself freeze up. The urge to panic returns. How the hell? You didn’t see any cameras. Not one. Was there an alarm? Was it on the door? Or somewhere on the grounds?

>>32617784how will said system detect us? it needs a wavelength of some form to use to analyze us.If invisibility makes us undetectable on most wavelengths, then the one it uses to detect us is also likely blocked from working while invisible.

>>32617935no its not radioactive, otherwise everyone would die.most invisible mutants don't also block other light spectrum's than the visible, so heat and so forth are valid. Ours is very powerful, so it does.But again, only level 5 blocks everything.
>>32618027Even that won't do jack shit. Machines are easily replaceable within an hour or two.The only way to actually accomplish anything is to escape, and then corner and kill all these people when they're trapped underground, and then remove the mutants from the premises / terminate them.
JESUS.Crusty: If we end up fighting these guys you need to right it like when Spider-Man snaps.Not going to animal instinct, but just straight up emotionally not giving a shit.BTW: Bet money the guards are there to destroy evidence of the mutants. (Which are obviously being used to harvest Jack.)

I'd say our Defensive ability is lacking, but I'd also prefer to avoid fighting as much as possible.>>32618060There's a lot of different types of radiation. Plus rads are only dangerous once they're at a certain point. We're NOT at level 5, so that's a moot point, but we are at Level 4 which is still good. Just not sure how good it'll do for a mutant detection system that surely has to have a means of tracking down invisible mutants (because they're seriously going to have come across a few). Best guess is they can't find us while it's active, but the next few nights are going to be like that one Avatar episode where the gang's being chased by Azula nonstop until everyone suffers from sleep deprivation.

You cut wires, slice tubing, and smashing plastic casing, rendering half the machines inoperable. And you the whole time, you know what you’re thinking? You’re thinking that these people – the ones coming down the stairs – aren’t anyone you know. They don’t feel like gangsters. You know gangsters, and this just isn’t them. They’re silent. They’re as close to dead fucking silent as a human being can feasibly be. They’re wearing heavy boots, but their footwork is practiced and quiet, and fast – if you weren’t you, you’d probably never even hear them coming. They’d just be right behind you and you’d be completely fucked. Your mind races as you sprint for the exit. Mercenaries? Creeper’s hired mercs before. Once he had this South African guys working for him, these bloody-minded killers with dead eyes and steady arms – people that made hardened gangsters shift uncomfortably and want to be elsewhere. Something’s hissing. Corridor’s filling up with gas. You plunge on through, eyes watering, throat burning. It’s just tear gas, you think. You can deal with this. You can get out of this. As you wade through the murk, you see them, their shapes, moving like shadows. They’re clad from head to toe in black tactical gear, looking vaguely like characters from some armchair general’s highly-armed, impeccably armoured wet dream. Their breath hisses through some kind of compact rebreathers and their eyes are hidden by dark red visors. These aren’t gangsters. They’re not even gangster-like. They’re professionals. And they have big scary rifles.You feel your chest tighten.

You emerge into the fake-office inside the fake-building to find that it, too, is pumped full of gas. There’s four of them in the room with you, at the exit, keeping it secure or whatever. They’re unnervingly quiet for men with such big guns. The silence breaks when one of them speaks into a comm-link, or a headset or whatever it is, his voice distorted beyond all possibility of recognition. “Nothing on infrared.” Your gut squirms. They know. They know it’s you. “Abort?” “No.” Comes the reply. It’s this silky, sharp female voice. Sounds foreign – like English is a second or maybe third language. “He’s here. I can smell his fear.” Something clicks rhythmically in the smoke, like a scorpion flexing its chitin.

>>32618273>>[ ] Jump over them.You have more agility than strength, people.And you want to be stealthy.
>>32618309Just what I was thinking. Except, don't throw it exactly opposite you so it's harder to determine where it came from.
>>32618328Imagine how hype stealth kills would be with the tail
>>32618234Oh god, the same thread where we mention needing some way to get past tear gas (and gas in general). This was me! >>32614073>>32618273Slip by as stealthily as possible, we have contortion, let's do high-stakes twister. And then when that fails or they start to move towards JJ, flee with the force of a panicked Hobozilla.

>>32618372It's too expensive, and we have better things to buy like Subdermal, Wings, Agility, Invisibility, etc.
>>32618390they're both at level 3same bonus modifier
>>32618390They're both level 3.We're exactly as strong as we are agile.
>>32618273>Stay stealth and sneak past them.
>>32618355Thats exactly what im imagining.Also additional hype from Contortion.Man-eating JJS hiding in vents, grabbing dues and puling them in with his tail.Im wondering if Strength applies to the tail as well.
strength would make us drop invis.Dropping invis is a bad idea.
Ceilings haven't failed us today, contortion + invis + Agility, let's sneak through over them until we hit a window or exit THEN go full sprint exits.
>>32618417Well, if not for the hideously large price, yeah.But, well, a man can dream.
>>32618380Actually, we're really fucking good at hearing, just keep on going past them, get as much info as we can while walking away.
Baiting out our position in anyway would be dumb as fuck.
>>32618273>[ ] Jump over them.
>>32618326That's not a write in that's "Jump over them."They are literally standing in the doorway. That's why jump over them is an option.>>32618328>UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DROP INVIS.>we do that, we are dead.No shit. Why would anyone suggest dropping invis?>>32618337This could be good, but would probably do more damage to us that them (super senses)>>32618366They'll just soot at where the desk came form. These guys are professionals and they know we 're invisible.
>>32618425We do have an additional +1 to agility from boosted attributes as well as the enhanced levels. As well as courage, persuasion, and perception.

>>32618480Fair dues.The image in my head of jumping over them was way more ostentatious.

>>32618532APOLOGIES SO FUCKING ACCEPTED
>>32618480>>32618543>>32618556We wouldn't drop invis with Shadowfield.
>>32618573yes we would. we'd be blurry instead. and then they'd just open fire and JJ would die in a hail of bullets.its a weak stop gap
>>32618567They are all also divisible by 6IT GOES DEEPER
>>32618573No, we'd just be identified as that blurry shape that just popped up over there, shoot it now. Shadowfield a shit.
>>32618573Do we have that yet? No? Then who cares? The idea was idiotic.Plus it would break stealth regardless even if you did have that.There are no merits to the plan at all.
>>32617930>>32618161Why the fuck do people keep forgetting the Taskmaster powers?
>>32618590>>32618608>>32618613>we'd be blurry instead. and then they'd just open fire and JJ would die in a hail of bullets.Nah. They wouldn't get a good read on him.Well, these fucking ex-SPETNAZ guys might, but not most everybody else.
just to note: shadow field would stack with our agility and help with the bullet dodging matrix shit.
>>32618615because only you're the only one that cares about it.go start taskmaster quest if you're so interested
>>32618625Again.It would break stealth regardless even if you did have that.Why are you arguing this?
So was that kid cypher?
>>32618615because its good, unlike claws or subdermal
>>32618625they have lots of gun that shoot lots of bulletsnot all the bullets would hit but enough would
Also Katamari powerTACTILE TELEKINESISRequires: Level 4 Adhesive Touch, Level 4 Enhanced SensesCost: 3As long as he remains in contact with one object, JJ may cause such objects to adhere to one another in large volumes. He could, for example, assuming he has the strength, wield a ‘chain’ of chairs, tables, and other miscellaneous items, or wrap his forearms in cartoonishly large clumps of adhered rocks.
>>32613267>still only two pastebins in the OP copypastaCrusty why. Why haven't you changed your copypasta?
> gets horns and tailTHIS ISN'T EVEN MY FINAL FORM!
>>32618625>Implying guns in a small office won't hit a blurry target described as "as seen through mist".It's shit because it lets them know what general direction to even look in. That is not stealth.
>>32618646>It would break stealth regardless even if you did have that.>Normally, JJ’s invisibility fails completely in moments of extreme exertion, physical trauma, or when he activates certain other abilities. This upgrade allows him to function in such situations with a muted form of invisibility – rather than being truly imperceptible, his features are blurred and his exact position becomes unclear, as if he’s being seen through mist.>>32618660See above.>>32618648>So was that kid cypher?No. Why would you think that?We've already met Cypher back with the Young X-Men.
Question; Could we use adhesive touch on only our hands and move across the ceiling like a kid on the monkey bars?
>>32618698Yeah, but that'd be ill-advised in our current situation.
>>32618636>because only you're the only one that cares about it.At least half a dozen people, if not more, have expressed interest in it over the course of the past few threads, and the prerequisite (Getting Agility to 4/5) is something nearly everyone here would probably agree is a good idea.
>>32618698probably? i cant imagine a single reason we would ever do that though
>>32618686That is called breaking stealth, yes.IE they know you're goddamn there.having a non "exact" position means nothing when they can riddle the general possibilities of your location with bullets.Even one bullet wouldn't be hard to aim at a figure in mist.Why are you so stubborn about this? Do you even think shoving was a good idea?
>>32618740>Do you even think shoving was a good idea?I voted for Jumping.And JJ can dodge bullets. He'll be fine.
>>32618723I wanted to bank for agility last thread but everyone jumped on the strength bandwagon.
To be honest, I'm actually more confident in our ability to take these guys down.For one thing, they have the worst kind of weapon for their current environment, their gear is advanced enough that they're gonna rely on it instead of their other senses, and their uniforms are dehumanizing enough to make JJ hold back less.
>>32618740I interpreted that post as an agreement with the downside of shadowfield which is a shit.
>>32618764we have max agility
>>32618788No we don't.Agility's max is 5.
>>32618648No. Broadband maybe?
>>32618781No, they wouldn't tell someone who thinks that Shadowfield a shit "See above" if they were agreeing with them.They are just that dumb.
>>32618778I think that the fact that they work for the monster running this place is more than enough to make JJ not hold back on them.
>>32618788no, we have max strength,agility can go up to 5.
>>32618686>dodging 40 armed and traind guyswaifu a better power>>32618723and yet you had to ask why no one is talking about it.power discussion is just stupid at this point. everyone, regardless of what power they want, is going to pick bank. cuz we have none
>>32618788Nope, only strength is limited to 3.
>>32618778They have a mutant boss.There is no way she's easy to take on.Also note that the others, a group of a great deal more firepower, chose not to engage them.
>>32618798no, its 3 because its not one of our main powers
>>32618788As well as max strength and healing factor (thank god, now let's buy something else)>>32618798>>32618808>>32618816It's a secondary power, therefore it's maxed. At least that's how I remember the secondary power rules.
Draconic breath sure would be useful here
>>32618835>They have a mutant boss.She's Balalaika. Not a mutant.>>32618839>no, its 3 because its not one of our main powersNo, it can go up to 5.Prove me wrong.
>>32618778A lady with a shotgun kicked our shit just a few threads ago. I don;t know.
>>32618839Only third-tier powers are limited to three.
>>32618812>and yet you had to ask why no one is talking about it.Because believe it or not, the same people probably don't manage to be around for every single thread.Obviously banking this session is a given, but talking about the future never hurt anyone. Autonomic Sequencing and Enhanced Muscle Memory are both incredible powers, and not just because of their combat applications. Imagine learning Laura's stealth techniques in a matter of weeks instead of months or years?
>>32618848DC18 NO BONUSES
>>32618532>22No stopping here. You break into a run, legs churning with desperate fire, soles pumping against the ground. You ignore the tears in your eyes and the burning tightness in your lungs and you just jump – you jump as far as you can. You hurtle straight over their shoulders, clearing the doorway and much of the corridor beyond, eventually skidding to a halt at least six or seven meters from where you started. Strength means jump good. Jump good is nice. Thank God for retard mutie strength. Stopping only momentarily, you make for the doorway leading out into the main atrium, but that click-clacking sounds again, closer now, and you feel your spine dancing on the spot, a white-hot warning exploding to the forefront of your thoughts. You duck, and something – lots of somethings – scythe through the air above you. They would’ve passed straight through your throat had you not been tipped off by that weird pre-sense of yours. Where’d that come from? You’re not attaching a heartbeat to it. You think you heard a set of footsteps pass by you, but they were so light, like whatever they belonged to was only vaguely tethered to reality. Was there a shape moving through the smoke? Maybe. If it was there, it was fast. Click-clack. And you hear something, something a lot like that familiar, metallic SNIKT. --------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ76: END>Congratulations!

>>32618804My mistake, thought that the link in that "See above" was referring to not being hard to hit as seen through mist as well as the guys here having lots of guns which will increase the hit chance.
