The beast snarls in incognisant rage, leering at you through Laura’s eyes. Your attempt to pull the rug out from under a small section of Creeper’s remaining criminal empire (fiefdom, really) could have perhaps gone better. Either you were expected, or you tripped some kind of silent alarm – either way, a full battalion of what appeared to be armed mercenaries swarmed the place, and you barely escaped with your life. You made a pretty awful racket in the process, though, which makes the current situation even more problematic. Rather than being greeted with a nice, soothing blanket and a cup of hot cocoa by your companions (well, that was never gonna happen, but… y’know… it would’ve been nice), you were immediately assaulted by a frenzied Laura, who is presently attempting to gut you right in the middle of the street.A deep, heavy percussion rolls through the ground, originating from somewhere close by.

Oh good, I'm not too late.We need to remember what the shop girl told us about the black guy.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29490406/We can ask if it's the same black guy here and if he can do it to us.
>>33069560No, that's a terrible idea. For all we know they have tranqs that can beat Laura's metabolism and ours, and they already have a way of tracking us in close quarters.
>>33069651we're mutant in the marvel universe, we don't need help being unpopular. badum tshbut I guess tagging us and chasing laura into the river would work
>>33069662they didn't bust out the tranqs back inside. Did they officially sight laura?
>>33069651>>33069668That might take too much time. Plus Laura might count Brian coming close to JJ as interfering and knock him the fuck out.
>>33069651Nice solution, but kind of meta knowledge to figure out and use right now.
>>33069668I was thinking more along the lines of having him tag us so that Laura stops trying to kill us for the moment, then we can go wash up.
>>33069689I doubt she'd be holding back enough to just knock him out. She's berserk when Triggered.
>>33069694not meta, his power was explained in universe to us
Laura has metal claws.That means she has metal bonesMetal is heavy as fuckWe're stronk as fuckTherefore, stripping and going to swim in the river is the best way to outrun her. She can drown a little and it doesn't matter because of the Healing Factor.
>>33069662No, but they were certainly prepared for Laura given the trigger scent and if we lead Laura to them, we're just helping them with their objective.
>>33069715She incapacitates those trying to interfere.
>>33069694Someone told us before, so we would know about it. Just call it a brainstorm.
>>33069722>That means she has metal bonesNOPE.Only metal claws. And I think adamantium is really light.
>>33069722In her origin story they only did her claws, the rest of her skelly is normal. Its why her healing factor is better than wolvie's
>>33069722She only has metal claws if I remember right.>>33069727If by incapacitate, you mean render a corpse, then yes.see this anon's pic.>>33069502
>>33069722Laura doesn't actually have metal bones, just the metal claws.
>>33069727she killed her own mother under trigger scentshe RIP AND TEAR atm
>>33069722This isn't terrible logic, still a little meta, but what else are we going to do to stop her? If she's angry enough to go after us without rationalizing, she'll probably chase us all the way to anywhere so long as we keep her attention. Thank god for all those times we played tag
>[X] Try to get Lucas and the Hellions to run.>Autosuccess engaged! It comes at you again, claws shining with lethal intent, but you step deftly to one side, your speed surprising the both of you. If this were Laura – the real Laura – she’d have probably gotten you by now, maybe killed you and left you bleeding in the snow already, but it’s not. It has her speed and her agility, almost none of her almost preternatural talent for combat. It’s just going through the motions of rage, swiping feverishly at you, like an animal. “What the hell!?”Julian close behind him, Lucas emerges from behind the dumpsters off into the alley, hurriedly rolling up his sleeves. A dim, dusk-red glow pulses along his veins, pooling at the base of his knuckles. “Don’t!” You shout, panicking momentarily. The beast lunges at you and you twist under it, darting around the creature. “I’ll deal with this, alright?” Another snarl, another swipe. It misses you by an inch – more or less. “You guys need to run! I’ll…” You’ll do what, exactly? You’ll sit here and duck and weave until you’re finally out of energy and the creature wearing Laura’s skin decorates the street with your innards? “…I’ll lead her away!” Lucas looks like he’s about to argue, but Julian grasps him by the shoulder, pulling him away. The other teen offers you a quick, sort of douchy nod, as if it must mean something coming from him, before the group scarpers off into the night. Leave you and the lady alone.>[ ] Try to lead her through the alleys, there’ll be less people.>[ ] Try to lead her through the main streets, it’ll be easier on you.>[ ] Try to lead her to high ground, you have the advantage there.>[ ] Write in

>>33069756I know I've seen one Wolverine comic where he mentions his skeleton makes him too heavy to swim, then I'm pretty certain it became completely disregarded forever.

>>33069960The fucking river would do that much more effectively.Say we get away from Laura. Then what do you think she's going to do? She going to head straight to her next target. The giant cloud of trigger scent a few blocks away. Then she get captured.If we still have trigger scent on us we wont even be able to rescue her when she goes after the bad guys because she'll attack us also.
>>33069887You're pretty fucking late, bro.
>>33070044We have to lead her there somehow. We're just leading her while up on things.
>>33070044There is no getting away from her. She won't stop as long as we have that scent on us. Once we get to a decent position, we can apply the POWER OF LOVE without worrying about getting anyone else hurt.

Is there a fire hydrant near by?we stronk enough to kick it off
>>33070128>fire hydrant near by?>In fucking New YorkGoddamn brilliant idea anon
>>33070128Oh thank god for reminding us about that.We could try to lure her into clawing one, then kicking out whatever end blasts her with a jet.
>>33070044So we should lead her down what, main street, where there are a fuck ton of people that can get in our way and which Laura can slice to pieces? We can still lead Laura to the river, but this way she doesn't have as much of an advantage and there's not as many people she could hurt
>>33070180we can lift a car without break a sweat, we could just kick it of in one fell swoop
>>33070128If you need an in character reason just use it to push her back.
>>33070209I just meant to get her closer to do pic related.
>>33070128Thank you.This idae, please.
>>33069987>23>shadow quest was stealing our dice all alongAs you fellow muties vanish into the night, you ponder your remaining options. You can’t go back. Guns are back. And the cops’ll be here soon, followed shortly by Mutant Control, when someone realized just what the hell is going on. Hell, maybe SHIELD’ll get involved. Private armies tearing up a small chunk of NY is SHIELD stuff, right? You leap to the side of another bladed swipe, and an idea forms in the back of your mind. You… you can jump pretty good. Not Samurai Jack good (you doubt very much that you’ll ever be Samurai Jack good at anything), but pretty damn good nonetheless. You can take this straight off the street, somewhere nice and high up, where you have the distinct advantage of being really really sticky (also, wings). Screaming in rage, the beast hurls itself at you, leading with its claws. You sweep back, leading it straight into the alley Julian and company were using for cover. Waiting for it to commit itself into yet another snarling lunge, you push off, nine or ten feet of air suddenly rushing in under you. You slam straight into the alley wall and flail out desperately, your palm sticking fast to the brickwork. Hissing in frustration, the beast glares up at you, taking a brief, frenzied moment to assess its surroundings before bolting for the fire escape a little to your left. You let it gain some ground before pushing off again, throwing yourself onto the roof of the opposite building. Blessed with a drop of precious time, you take a moment to think. >Logic Check>DC13

>>33070307Oh thank goodness, much appreciated Anon
>>33070366>I accidentally forget to put the 2 in 1d20Well, at least you hit a crit.
>>33070366Out of curiosity, try rolling, see what you might've gotten for us.
Rolled 7>>33070399The dice doesn't work that way
>>33070307So that means we've figured out that the gas we walked through is what's causing her to attack us. That means we can go for the fire hydrant idea.Can we make sure to take off our gloves and jacket before deploying our wings this time? Stuff gets expensive.
If we buy agility level 5 will we be able to jump like Samurai Jack?If we buy muscle memory we can sword fight like him.
>>33070409It's about see if your current roll is something better than the ones used so we can despair accordingly.
>>33070446a sword from where and learn from who?Also, we can pick up and toss cars anon
>>33070434well, that might be a problem.we need to find a hydrant nearby that is not in a main busy street.Thankfully the rooftops are deserted.
>>33070307>13…It’s pretty obviously that gas they doused you with, isn’t it? The smell is tenacious, clinging to you like an overbearing mother, its acrid sweetness still fresh. That’s why she went for you, rather than just popping her claws through whoever happened to be in sight when… whatever this is… kicked in. So it’s a gas designed to affect her sense of smell, or something. You wonder why it doesn’t work on you.The beast tears its way up the fire escape, slicing through whatever happens to be in its way. It throws an atavistic, feral glare over its shoulder at you, before making an impressive leap across the alley, fingers finding purchase on the ledge beside you. You’ve got to get clean. >[ ] Run for the river. Advantages: you know it’s there and the acidic taint of NY can burn literally anything off.>[ ] Look for a fire hydrant.

>>33070510>>[ ] Look for a fire hydrant. Advantages: it could be closer.
>>33070485I wonder if muscle memory would work from watching cartoons, or if it has to be live action.In any case, using muscle memory to learn Laura's fighting style (actually, her stealth style would be more useful to JJ) would probably be the most readily available means of improving JJ's overall ability.

>>33070510Fire Hydrant / Water Tower. Water Tower would probably be better as it's up off the street.
>>33070446Jumping is a strength thing.>>33070485Laura knows how to swords. She's not a master, but she knows how to use most weapons.
>>33070495It's like 2 AM, so that shouldn't be a problem.>>33070510>[x] Look for a fire hydrant. Advantages: it could be closer.
>>33070510>>33070533Backing this combo.
>>33070511Fair enough.Water tower is also a good idea, we can look for that too. We probably have good enough senses to notice brightly colored hydrants at a glance.
>>33070556The big city never sleeps.Pub goers etc. Plus mutant control assholes will be out and about this time of night 8288
>>33070510>[x] Run for the river. Advantages: you know it’s there and the acidic taint of NY can burn literally anything off.we can get a real bath later.
>>33070485>a sword from whereDon't know yet. But we could use a metal pipe in the mean time.>learn from who?The muscle memory extrapolative allows us to learn just by watching people. Hell we could learn it from watching tv.>Also, we can pick up and toss cars anonThis wouldn't stop non-trigger scent Laura from killing us. Kung fu is treated as a super power in the marvel universe just like super strength. The only reason we're still alive is because Laura has temporarily lost one of her super powers.
>>33070511Look for a water tower or a fire hydrant, and failing that lead her to the river
>>33070577>>33070526we don't have tv. we don't have electricity (noriko is unreliable atm)

>>33070596how much does a Gasoline generator cost in NY?
>>33070596Then the obvious, totally-not-creepy thing to do would be to peep in through people's windows while invisible as they watch kung fu movies.
>>33070511Back this, we can look for one while heading in the direction of the river.
>>33070617Cant we just use our own taser hands and a looted car battery?
>>33070596We could always go to a public library and watch youtube from there. That has the added benefit of being able to watch actual fights.

>>33070835Didn't think our phobia had anything to do with anything but our dragonbreath dc.
>>33070835Those other abilities being locked are unrelated to JJ's phobia. They're just the (current) limitations of his mutation.
>>33070835You are thinking of second set powers.Strength is a first set power in the tertiary catagory.It will always be locked, because of the decision for a stealth build at quest start.
>>33070890I don't remember in which thread, but I believe once JJ gets over a personal trial or something they'll be unlocked.
>>33070789He can't TK what he can't see. Also Crusty said he gave Julian a different power than in the comics. We still don't know what it is for sure.Julian could still have TK tho. "Different power" might have meant that Julian power just had a different mechanic behind it. TK through molecular manipulation was very OP in the comics.
>>33070835I bet Joseph could unlock Strenght 5 and other stuff. Xtra Power!
>>33070899Can we get confirmation on this Crustles?
Hey Crusty, DB level 1 is hot unstable gases and not fire on its own? Then why DC18? I could understand if it ignited something and brought about a willcheck to not freak out but what if it didn't set anything on fire?>inb4 random anon that isn't Crusty decides to answer the question
>>33070876>>33070890>>33070899This. Pretty sure Crusty said that if we had chosen the Tank build Enhanced Agility would have been capped at 3 instead of strength.
>>33070699>23Fire hydrants! New York is full of fire hydrants! Back when you were a kid, blissfully ignorant of the ways of the world, you thought it was an exaggeration, but it isn’t. NY is probably built on some kind of giant fire hydrant hive that occasionally pushes a new generation of spawn to the surface. As the beast scrabbles its way up onto the roof, you let the change take your arms, bones bursting through flesh, flesh bursting through hoodie, skin stretching and warping. You take to the air in a single mighty heave, just in time to evade a ferocious, arcing swing of the beast’s claws. You remain just out of her reach for a few minutes, held aloft by the cool night breeze, before you spot a fire hydrant sitting in the street below. You swoop down, skidding a little as you hit the ground. You’re still not quite certain of how exactly one goes about landing a JJ. Silhouetted atop a nearby building, the beast glances to and fro, before running for the closest way down. Breathing heavily, you rest your foot against the hydrant. Beginning to calm down, you flinch a little as a flash of blue light snaps over you. It alternates to red, and you realize, in a burst of sudden horror, that you’ve been so entirely focused on Laura that you’ve been blocking most other crap out. The sirens screech in your ears. Three cop cards heading straight down the street.Crap. >[ ] Run! >[ ] Quickly retract your wings. Maybe they haven’t noticed.>[ ] Invisible. >[ ] Write in.

>>33070973He's already answered this question. Do you not read the after quest Q&A's.The first and only time JJ used the power JJ melted a dudes face and started him on fire. You need to roll a will check because JJ will second guess himself before even trying to use the power.Remember in one of the earlier thread when we rolled a will check to strike a match. We failed and JJ never lit the match. Just thinking about it was enough to give him PTSD flash backs.

>>33071113Is JJ ever going to confront his pyrophobia on his own? because when it gets suggested as a write in it gets shouted the fuck down
>>33071029>Splash Laura as quickly as possible then invisible the both of you.A fully visible and berserk Laura will still be noticed by the cops. Let's just get this done.
>[x] Invisible. >[x] Write in.Spot a car two or three streets away. Throw a rock at it, to create noise, and hopefully trigger it's alarm. Wash while the cops look into that.
>>33071081Because if fire took everything you ever loved at age 13ish, then an angry mob tried to light you on fire after pouring petrol all over you, you'd remember. Or at least, a part of you would. The rest of you wouldn't, because OH GOD.So whenever something like that comes up (say, someone lighting a match), a part of your brain would say HEY I REMEMBER THAT GUYS REMEMBER THAT TIME-and then the rest of your brain would metaphorically tackle that part and attempt to shut it the fuck up.That is why we require a DC 18 to light a match, much less use Dragon's Breath.
>>33071029>>[ ] Invisible.These poor coppers are gonna get gutted....Ah well. Marvel cops. Probably on the take or shoot puppies or something.
>>33071173They probably shot Spiderman while he was pulling orphans out of a burning building
>>33071152>Is JJ ever going to confront his pyrophobia on his own? because when it gets suggested as a write in it gets shouted the fuck downIt gets shouted because no one wants to make a DC18 with no bonuses. And the times it comes up in the quest naturally (Demon & shipwreck), we get bonuses and the DC isn't as high.That's pretty much it.
>>33071226we'll be at 160+ threads by the time we reach 4/5
>>33071222>They probably shot Spiderman while he was pulling orphans out of a burning buildingIf they see Miles, they'll probably say:>"See! I told you Spider-Man's black.">"SPIDER-MAN'S A NIGGER! OPEN FIRE!"
>>33071226Personally, I'd love to. With relationship mods, we can probably beat an 18.
>>33071250>"HE'S STEALING ORPHANS! LOOTING THAT BURNING BUILDING!"
>>33071152>when it gets suggested as a write in it gets shouted the fuck downWhen we're in a combat situation it does. If we chose between>Dodge = a DC 16 with a +4 agility modifier>DB = a DC 18 with no modifierI'll pick dodge every time. We're to close to getting an arm chopped off as it is.
>>33071147How would that even work, though? Would we get a separate template, or would we spend like an x-point and shift that shit around, limiting some things and being able to boost others?
>>33071250I have not read anything about milesI was under the impression allot of marvel stuff was shit as of late.
>>33071262It's DC18 No Bonuses. Crusty said so.
>>33071272>IT WAS SELF DEFENSE
>>33071283>I was under the impression allot of marvel stuff was shit as of late.Miles isn't shit, it's that he's kind of boring.>>33071272>"HE HAD A GUN! THOSE WEB THINGS COUNT, RIGHT?"
>>33071262>>33071291Relationship mods are the only reason we've beat phobia rolls in the past. If one of our friends is in a burning building and there is no other way to save them then we get a relationship mod equal to our relationship level with them.If we decided to burn someones face off just to see what happens, we get no mods.
>>33071331Those web-shooters probably count as littering. Sure it breaks down after a bit, but he leaves webbing all over. Who knows if it clogs up the sewers or whatever when it breaks down and washes away.
>>33071388So, as I've said in previous threads, we should have a thread in which JJ faces his fears and hopefully doesn't roll like a crackbitch.
>>33071272Paperwork? No no, just sprinkle some crack on him and lets get out of here.
>>33071388Relationship mods and I'm fairly certain JJ also has a Courage bonus listed on his pastebin character sheet. Plus there's the occasional "Fuck this guy in particular" morale bonus (demon guy).
>>33071413progress on the phobia front is glacially slow...last one was waaaaay back on the ship IIRC
>>33071388>>33071413I just don't want to be in a DC 18 No Bonuses setting.
>>33071154We're the one covered in the scent. Splashing her would just make her wet.
>[X] Invisible.Reflexively, you scrub yourself out of the visual spectrum, vanishing into the cold, muted embrace of invisibility. That’s pretty much your default reaction to authority figures, possibly going back to before you even had these stupid powers, and it’s served you okay so far. Two cruisers shoot by, clearly en route to some nearby emergency, but the last one grind to a halt in the middle of the road. You flinch a little as a young, blonde officer of the law emerges from the passenger seat, glancing warily across the street, radio in one hand and pistol in the other. “…10-X, I repeat, 10-X, we have possible mutant involvement…” Staring at the apparently empty space you’re occupying, he glances to and fro, down the road, sighing a little. “…Possible suspect appears to have vanished. We’re”– Something knocks over one of the bins squatting at the mouth of a nearby alley. You squirm inwardly, because you know it’s not just something – it’s Laura, or the creature wearing her flesh. Christ. Starting slightly, the cop glances in her direction. She starts to put on speed. “…Young lady…?” Her breath trails from her as a long, guttural snarl. “…Ma’am, are you”– The moon bounces across her claws. You see his face change in an instant. He raises his gun, eyes dilating, heart accelerating– >[ ] Stop him. >[ ] Let him draw her attention.>[ ] Write in.
>>33071459>>[ ] Stop him.
>>33071432What part of "NO MODS" are you not getting?
>>33071459>[ ] Stop him.
>>33071459>>[ ] Stop him.knock him the fuck outbetter a concussion than a sever artery

>>33071459>[ ] Stop him.God dammit if we let Laura kill NYPD we'll be worrying about more than Creeper and Kimura.
>>33071443>Splashing her would just make her wet.We obviously can join her.>>33071459>[ ] Stop him.No man, you don't know her like that!
>>33071459>[ ] Write in.Spray them both with the fire hydrant, and try to get ourselves clean too.
>>33071459>Cold-cock the bastard, rush Laura. Try to knock her out and drag her along if she's surprised at all.
>>33071459>[x] Let him draw her attention.Not a fan of the police myself. He knew the risks when he put his badge on, let him have it.
>>33071432The reason people keep saying DC 18 no mods is because we don't get any of those if we have options that don't involve DB.For example; We're in a situation where we need to kill a guy and strength would work just as effectively at killing the guy but we chose DB for the lulz then there are no "Fuck this guy in particular" modifiers.
>>33071459>>[ ] Let him draw her attention....fuck it. He knew what he was getting into.Let his glorious death in the name of feeble human resistance buy us the time to save everyone else. Crack that hydrant open.
>>33071459>[ ] Draw her attention.Clearly the river is the superior choice here, anons.
>>33071533>>33071567>“…Young lady…?”>Her breath trails from her as a long, guttural snarl.>“…Ma’am, are you”– He's one of the good few, lets not let him die.

Or if he was egging us on while trying to use our fear against us (because he likely knows about it).

>>33071629Bless you, anon.
>>33071647I think it's more that we're not facing our fear/doing something that sets it specifically into courage.So, currently, if we have the help of Laura in facing our fear, it'd be +4 & +1 vs. DC 18.
>>33071672But calling in specifically with Laura's description or ours, Anon? Not yet. THAT is what gets the Faculty on our asses.
>>33071647>But likely the phobia outweighs the courage bonus there,You don't say?>>33071651Seconded.Even a half-call is better than a full report.>>33071693No, just DC 18 No Bonuses I think.I hope Crusty comes and clears this up.
>>33071715I think the vanishing mention is a hint.
>>33071715The FACILITY knows we are with Laura and have used our description to hunt us, since thread 6
>>33071739It's New York, cop could have seen something, but the people they saw ran away. But if this cop calls us in (our descriptions), the Faculty could be on our asses quickly.
>>33071788The mutant vanishing, plus the phrasing. A cop says the mutant vanished, it's more likely chalked up to "Weird mutant shit" than "suspect fled the scene or is currently hiding over there".
I swear, we need to shove something nasty up Laura's nose to overwhelm the scent trails of the trigger scent once we clean off. Cleaning ourselves off with water is a good start, but we need something to keep the Facility from causing Laura to go berserk the minute she gits a whiff.
>>33071845there is no canon method. marvel characters are not allowed to move past their base flaws. See Spider-man one more day
>>33071845The shit poured into the New York's rivers should generally take care of it.
>>33071874No, I mean, after. When we're being chased by the Facility, and they unleash the canisters on us again.
>>33071845Yeah, we need to cover her nose. >>33071871No, no, this is a short-term fix, we haven't reached a reset point yet. As it is, we'd get to "I'm a monstaaaaarrrrrrgghh", *rage intensifies*, water-spray, "I'm a mon-" and the cycle repeats.
>>33071629>17Dammit. She’ll kill him. Cops’ve never done you any favours, but you never gave them much of a reason to count you on their good side, did you? You and your backpacks full of drugs and your iron pipe round the back of tourists’ heads. In a way you sort of owe these people, don’t you?You feel your arms shift, flesh furling back into shape, wings receding into five clawed digits. The gun rises through the air and you perceive, in perfect, aching clarity, Laura’s eyes swivel in their sockets, turning toward him. The beast sets its sights on him. Hurling yourself off the fire hydrant, you bull into the man, a panicked yelp expanding in his chest as an apparently invisible force knocks him off his feet, sending him tumbling through the air. And then the beast is on you, its claws raking in close, its breath filling the air with incognisant, empty hate. You catch Laura’s wrists a second before the thing puppeteers her claws straight through your chest, but the force slams you against the hood of the cruiser, nudging it very slightly across the tarmac. The beast spits and growls straight into your face, blood boiling in the corners of its eyes. In the corner of your eye, the driver scrambles out of his car, fear bleating in his eyes, fingers fumbling at his gun. He draws it and –“Jerry, no!” The other officer, the one you saved, throws up a cautionary hand, his eyes focused on you, something resembling gratitude in them. His partner hesitates just long enough for you to…>[ ] Throw Laura at him. >[ ] Push her back and slam your foot down on the hydrant.>[ ] Push Laura back and slide the car at him.>[ ] Write in.

>>33071920>[ ] Push her back and slam your foot down on the hydrant.

>>33071920>>[ ] Push her back and slam your foot down on the hydrant.We need to finish up. Fast.
>>33071997You don't get your Courage for DB, but you may get relationship modifiers in certain instances.
>>33071919I am giggling at the implications here, us spraying water on Laura every time she mopes about her inability to stop her rage like a dog. "No, Laura, bad Laura. You do that outside!" *spshh*
>[X] Push her back and slam your foot down on the hydrant.Though it would be really funny to turn around and throw her at him all of a sudden.
>>33072035So, basically, for DB it's DC18 No Bonuses all the time?
>>33072045But it's a serious problem, so we use a fire hydrant. It's better at discouraging stuff.
>>33072089"No Laura, bad Laura, stop that!" *breaks open fire hydrant* "AGLAGLAGLAG--"
>>33071693You get relationship bonuses when your friends are in danger and you're trying to save them.So far we have never gotten a relationship bonus for moral support which is what you seem to be thinking.
>>33072078No, man, did you not read what he said? It's 18 DC with no mod, except in specific circumstances.
>>33072126pic related here.>>33070258
>>33072146Ah. I thought he meant certain circumstances being times when we don't use DB.And I asked that for simple clarification for future reference.
>>33072169damnit i was looking to link that as well.
If we had claws 2 opening the fire hydrant would take half a second.
>>33072198It helped that I was the one to post it, so I knew what to Ctrl+F for.So yeah: ideas for the next step, anybody? I'm pretty sure it's going to be either persuade the cops to let us just go, invis out, blatantly flee, or something else.
>>33071956You mean the cop stops his partner from shooting us, AND we get karma? That's a red letter day in JJ's book!
>>33071920>>[ ] Push her back and slam your foot down on the hydrant."Sorry, she's just a little wet behind the ears!"
>>33072268I think we should lead the cops to the warehouse, and warn them to bring back up. Then disappear; the cops can figure out what to do with that shit after.
>>33072258Strength 3 + Claws 1 is good enough for now, Anon.
>>33072268>blatantly fleeWe are too legit to handle. What are they gonna do, shot us with their peashooters?
>>33072258a good example of why upping claws is a good idea in future.
>>33072258If we had our current level of strength it would take one kick. Hey, lookit that!That said, I do want either Claws and/or Tasers at 2 for the welding/metal-cutting ability.
>>33072299Yeah, we really should tell them about the warehouse place and what we found there.
>>33072277>MUTANT HERO SAVES AGAIN!>Nonmasked vigilante saves cop from berserk QT3.14. Spider-man involved?
>>33072299*Er, not lead, give them the lead about the warehouse
>>33072308Tunnel lizard antics as well.If we ever went super villian we could tunnel into bank vaults and generally be a one man bank heist.
>>33072317Spider-man's ass is a menace.
>>33072299That's not bad, we should do that after we get the Laura situation under control
>>33072320You mean give them the address.
>>33072299they'd get slaughtered by the Deathstrike and her goons.theses guys are just aiming for pensions
>>33072338JJJ needs pictures, pictures of Spider Man's ass
>>33072376*shrug* If nothing else, killing a bunch of NYPD will get the Feds in on it, and they can knock on this paramilitary organizations door with the Avengers.
>>33072305Yes.Blatantly flee doesn't mean anything other than a good ol' fashioned Smoke Bomb moment.
>>33072382>the day Peter decided photography isn't for him
>[X] Push, hydrant.The beast snarls in your face and you feel compelled to answer in kind, a vicious, deep roar reverberating up through your throat, emerging from some ancient, deep-down place, somewhere primeval. You think you feel a wave of sickening heat emerge from your mouth, all but plastering the hair to Laura’s face. You heave. You heave with all your ridiculous, bestial strength. Laura surges back, towards the street, still pushing desperately to get her claws into your chest, and the moment you feel the fire hydrant beneath you slam your foot straight down on it. Cold, clear water washes over you, slicing up into the air. It burns, not like fire. The beast struggles and writhes, screeching in hungry frustration, pushing harder now, hissing, spitting, finally resorting to putting its teeth into your shoulder. The pain lances through you, but the cold dulls it, evening it out across you. Slowly, the acidic touch of the gas fades. Slowly, the claws vanish, pale skin knitting itself whole behind them. The beast pulls its fangs out of your flesh, and Laura looks up at you. Her teeth are mottled with blood. Breath smells of gore and adrenaline. The water shimmers on her skin, wreathing her in a cold, colourless flame. She breaths in, and opens her mouth, and– The gunshot cuts through the night. You feel it dig in to your back. You feel the blood bubble up to the surface, spilling out through your hoodie, hot against cold. It doesn’t hurt, at first. Then it does.“Jerry! Holy shit, Jerry! What have you”– You knees touch the pavement. You taste blood in your throat. “Johnathan!” Laura’s voice. “Johnathan!” Laura’s voice. “John!” You feel yourself burning. >Willpower Check>DC18>+4 relationship modifier

>>33072479>21“…I… I didn’t… I didn’t meant to…” You smell his lies. They curdle in the air like fat, greasy turds. Fat, like his waist. Fat, bubbling, roasting, spitting. You could do with some pork. You could eat a lot of pork. Straight off the bone. Gristle, meat, eyeballs, brains, skin, blood, snout… teeth. Uniform. Badge. “Jesus Christ, man, he saved my life!” “…I just… he’s… he’s one of them…” Your gums bleed and smoke billows in your breath. You feel everything sharpening. You feel the wound spitting little tufts of metabolic fire. Steam coils off you where the water falls. You’re roasting. Your blood is boiling. You’re shifting, bones melting, twisting, soldering themselves into new, awkward, lethal shapes. You are becoming ugly. “John!” Her voice cuts through the inferno. She clasps your hands in hers, her skin turning red and raw at your touch. You breathe out a stinging fury, a death-rattle made of thunder, and you hear glass shattering nearby. People swear loudly. “John!” Her arms are under yours. She’s lifting you. You align your thoughts with her warmth, with her voice. You feel the heat subside, and, in a moment of sudden, breathless cognisance, you shift the both of you into invisibility. Leaning heavily on Laura, you stagger off the street, into one of the adjacent alleys. Your feet feel numb. Or cold. One or the other. The night whirls by and you realize you’ve stepped out of invisibility. Nearby, something shakes the earth, and the two of you stop momentarily. A huge, bulbous cloud of smoke, its innards wracked by flecks of orangey-yellow heat, spreads out over the night sky. Boom. You think you feel the shockwave all the way over here. Wherever here is. >[ ] Ask Laura what happened to her. >[ ] Ask Laura about claw lady back at Creeper’s place.>[ ] Ask Laura if she knows what that big explosion is.>[ ] Just be quiet.

>>33073081>His healing factor means he has to keep drinking throughout the whole ordeal. Until he starts sobering up, but he's still overwhelmed with sads, so Laura keeps comforting him as he gets more coherent and even sadder.I'd like it.

buffing up subdermal is looking better and better, right after invis 5
>>33073225There will only be more gunfire from here on out.Least when we get it to negate gunfire and wings 3 we will have portable shields.By the way: JJ just flew PROPERLY for the first time. This day hasent been entierly shit. He just managed to have his dream power come true.
>>33073225I know I want more Subdermal and more Taserhands, for welding, range, & because it's one of our best non-lethal attacks. But I'd like more Defense before Offense. Maybe some Utility stuff, but survival is an immediate priority.
>>33073328I'd rather buff up Claws to level 2 (and just level 2) instead of Taserhands.
>>33073328Need to swap out dragon breath for sonic scream- godzilla roar of death.
>>33073362haha no.Besides, ide rather have the godzilla fire breath.
>>33073362blasphemyGodzilla is atomic firebreath
>>33073345I'd like Claws 2 for the utility and claw length, but Tasers for the actual combat. Both of them together though, we can hobo-smith our own suit of armor by cutting metal and welding it.>>33073362I'd be down for that.
>>33073345I don't really care what we buff up.>>33073362I'd rather keep it.
>>33073389Or make small trinkets and stuff to sell for money from scrap metal
>>33073379Well check it out.We've got plenty of anti personnel powers, but currently we're shit out of luck against two big your fucked types of enemies.Invulnerable supes, and giant robots.
>>33073362We do need a non-lethal ranged attack.>>33073379>>33073388He said roar not breath. Crusty said that sonic scream sounds like a godzilla roar.
>>33073413Ooh, good idea!Maybe get Layla to do a multi-person sales pitch to dumb tourists who'll eat that shit up.
>[X] Just be quiet.You don’t speak. You just let the cold tickle your nose and the world heave on by. Air is like ozone now, like shorted televisions. There’s a thick, muggy heat rising up through the cold, washing over the two of you in barely-palpable waves. You think you see brief flashes of light, like the veins on a stormcloud, bursting to and fro through the smoke. Reminds you of pictures from Nagasaki – the tremendous, yawning cloud, the yellow-red fury, the deathly imperiousness of it. You flew good today. You always wanted to fly. Who doesn’t? You wish you didn’t have the goofy wings, though. How do they even work? Human skeleton isn’t even remotely aerodynamic, right? You guess it’s just… just a mystery of the X-gene. Mystery of nature. God. “You’re healing quickly.” Notes Laura, her breath laboured. She must’ve been carrying your useless ass for a while. There’s always someone carrying you. Joyce. Creeper. Laura. Your approach to life is like your approach to ice skating – lots of uncomfortable flailing around followed by twisting an ankle and watching from the side-lines. “You’ve lost a lot of blood, but your wound is already pushing out the projectile. You may be experiencing some light-headedness. That is normal.”It’s not normal. Being like this isn’t normal. “I’m sorry.” You mumble, your voice emerging as a slurred mess. “I’m sorry.” She should just leave you here, in whatever alley off wherever street. Just drop you down with the garbage.-------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ78: END>Congratulations! X-Point! >Congratulations! A cop thinks you are okay and you didn’t kill him!>Congratulations! Laura didn’t kill you!
>>33073415Bah humbug.You dont need to build a hard counter to every damn problem. Infact doing so makes life very boring.I like the story, not here for the power gaming.
>>33073362I've been reading through the archives, and I'm still amazed that dragon breath won over optic force beams. Plus, now that we have geo vision it would be even stronger.
>>33073432>Crusty said that sonic scream sounds like a godzilla roar.A super loud Godzilla roar.
>>33073413That would be even better. Fits JJ more, I think. I mostly brought it up because of the one anon obsessed with getting a manhole-cover-shield and assorted hobo-armor.>>33073443Aw, JJ, naw, don't be depressed! You need alcohol, not blood loss for that!
>>33073443Thanks for running crusty!aaand Bank. thats 2/4 for invis 5.
>>33073443bankthanks for running>>33073432we already did a godzilla roar when we warp spasmed with Rogue and we used DB during it too. atrophy fags will have to wait even longer for something that won't happen
>>33073443Bank.Also, when do you expect next session will be?
>>33073450Problem is we're going to be fighting an invulnerable bitch no matter what, and giant robots are kind of staple mutant enemies. I don't care for being completely fucked in very likely scenarios, plus JJ's got adaptive mutation, it isn't power gaming, it's adapting.
>>33073457Also it's armor-piercing.>>33073465Also, bank, I guess. Invis 5 would be nice to avoid most Nat 1 shenanigans.
>>33073443If JJ feels this bad, imagine how Laura must feel.Now I know I'm about to open up a huge can of worms here, but whats the consensus on nixing dragon breath?
>>33073443Bank.Also: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/32861931/#p32863741Ideas for JJ's Codename: Mystery, Superfreak, ScarWill the X-Men: No More Humans event have any effect or appearance in HMQ?One song JJ should be able to play on piano is Just a Friend by Biz Markie.Great hypothetical fight: Molly Hayes vs Joyce Green.
>>33073486We didn't choose to use it, so yeah, don't think that counts.
>>33073415Sonic was specifically designed to be an armor piercing attack.Sonic Scream>Level 3: JJ may now modulate the frequency of his scream, allowing it to displace objects by vibrating them at the right frequency. This makes the power ideal for dismantling machinery, and can cause deep tissue damage to humans.This has anti-sentinel attack written all over it.
>>33073443Poor JJ. So depressed.Ah, well.Bank.
>>33073540the power was used, it counts sonic is dead, like my beloved optic force blast let it go anon, the phase friends did and they're happier for it
>>33073541Hence why I was bringing it up, again.Despite it being a thread long argument waiting to happen.
>>33073533>One song JJ should be able to play on piano is Just a Friend by Biz Markie.YES.Although I think we've kicked around potential JJ Codenames for about 70 threads.
>>33073514I have my reasons for voting for DB and im sticking to it.Godzilla roar or no. Besides, kind of cheapens something so majestic coming out of a guys mouth when it should be the oh shits about to go down noise from something BIG.DB works vs robots btw. we are past the point of being completely fucked any way you slice it, so drop that silly point.
>>33073443Bank.Thanks for running.You thinking about running dome more tonight?
>>33073577>Although I think we've kicked around potential JJ Codenames for about 70 threads.Yeah, those are just some new ones I thought of.
>>33073568Its dead you autist.
>>33073490I honestly have no idea.>>33073533>Will the X-Men: No More Humans event have any effect or appearance in HMQ?I don't even know what that is.>Great hypothetical fight: Molly Hayes vs Joyce Green.Indeed.
>>33073587>Godzilla roar or no. Besides, kind of cheapens something so majestic coming out of a guys mouth when it should be the oh shits about to go down noise from something BIG.It adds surprise. You'd expect it to come from something big and nasty, not some smelly hob-OH SHIT!>>33073608Did you see the link full of questions from last time?
>>33073587What are your reasons for DB?Also it'll take quite a bit of work for it to affect robots. And rarely will it work on armored guys.
>>33073590still favoring Haphazard but I got a new oneDodger (though getting shot today put a damper on that)
>>33073608Why has JJ's day been so shit?
>>33073566It obviously doesn't count, since that would go completely against what crusty said about letting it being able to decay.>>33073587I voted for it too, but honestly, it's a shitty power, and probably doesn't work on giant robots.
>>33073608>I don't even know what that is.Raze, Mystique and Wolverine's kid, uses a dimensional portal one human invented to basically send all Humans to other dimensions and bring mutants from really anti-mutant dimensions and other worlds to 616 Earth.
>>33073486>we used DB during it tooThere is zero evidence that we used DB during warp spasm. You're just assuming we did.
>>33073608Its a shitty graphic novel by Mike Carey it came out in Marchits shit.
>>33073530I'd like it nixed, an it's ability that hasn't seen much use since we purchased it, given how corrosive and flammable it is. I'm not sure JJ is/would be comfortable using it, it takes a will roll just to use it making it unreliable in combat situations and it takes time for us to get over the phobia whereas as any other blast ability would not need the amount of time and effort DB would need to make it consistently reliable in combat
>>33073533You guys had your chance at taking a nickname back at the Blonde Phantom interview, with their anonymity schtick and all.Hell, that deal might still be on the table tomorrow ingame when we'll be collecting that precious dosh.1 - Uncle Patches 'Patchwork'2 - Haphazard the Happy Lizard3 - Electro Gecko4 - Bandersnatch5 - Nosferatu
>>33073650At low level. But if you argue that then everything is mute.
>>33073636Dodger would get tons of "Rodger, Dodger" puns anytime we tell or ask someone to do something.
>>33073608did we use DB during the warp spasm Godzilla moment with Rogue?
>>33073684>You guys had your chance at taking a nickname back at the Blonde Phantom interview, with their anonymity schtick and all.Proof?
>>33073689No, it's still pretty dildos later.
>>33073608It's a recent, and very shitty, X-men comic that happened, did nothing to to overarching story of the x-men, and will never again be brought up.
>>33073690If we team up with Justice:>"Roger, Dodger.">"What's your vector, Victor?"
>>33073587DB isn't even ranged. It's at most medium to close range. Add to that the fact that if we ever fail one of those will checks, it will just get harder to use, and it's just not worth it.
>>33073530There are like two die hard db fans that keep spamming the board but I think the majority of people realize it's a shitty power that we'll never use.
>>33073716Instant incineration is dildos?I dont think you grasp exactly how hot DB can get.Add on the solar fire extrapolative that FOCUSES this heat and it would be pritty damn powerful.
>>33073650atrophy was lipservice to shut the whiners up. it failed of coursesee>>33073743
>>33073684>that ranking list.#1 name should be Vagrant. No question.And Bandersnatch should be JJ's villain name.
>>33073701No. He's spouting lies and misinformation. JJ blacked out so technically he might have. But there was no evidence of it in crusty's posts.
>>33073753>atrophy was lipservice to shut the whiners upProof?
>>33073748most anons have better things to do than argue over a vote that happened months ago.>>33073775are you Crusty?
>>33073716Its is still dildos. Withs the sonics screams, you gets the breaking through armors at the starts, plus it starts off pretty metal.>>33073752It takes forevers to gets to that point.
>>33073775Except a burnt down building...
>>33073758>name should be Vagrant.Agreed.
>>33073753Honestly, I'd love Crusty to just give another vote, given there's enough people with legitimate reasons for not wanting the power. Hell, if we're lucky, we could use that x-point to help us purchase subdermal
>>33073775I'm not trying to defend that Anon or anything, but Laura did say there that the building exploded.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/32200230/#p32203990
>>33073801The building was already burnt down, dude
>>33073813We kinda exploded. Not from our mouth, our everything.
>>33073834No, we went riastrad. We exploded in the warehouse with Typhon.
>>33073800Plus, it opens up the potential for a career as the lead singer of a metal band.
>>33073801He also blew up Josephs lab. Are you suggesting that JJ used Draconic breath 10 threads before we bought it?The building getting destroyed doesn't prove shit. Rogue was packing dozens of powers that could have destroyed the building.
>>33073843>Plus, it opens up the potential for a career as the lead singer of a metal band.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFgdte8JKI0
>>33073813see >>33073845Why are you assuming JJ's the one that did it? Rogue had all of JJ's powers plus some.
>>33073801JJ burns with metabolic fire every time he goes full godzilla mode, that's not fire breath, that's fucking ambient heat.
>>33073782has he ever given a specific number or amount of time for atrophication?>>33073806>>33073800there was a vote. sonic scream lost, my fave optic force blast lost, optic heat blasts lost. let it go. phase friends moved on, glove guys moved on. why can't you? Why do you keep picking this scar>>33073845strawmanning so hard
>>33073845You right she many powers that could of destroyed the building, but how many of them involve fire?
>>33073841Oh, thought that was the building the post was talking about without actually looking at the link.Rogue went riastrad too, so SHE might have been the one to dragonbreath (and we might have as well, but we wouldn't be held to actions taken offscreen with no input on our side because that would be the peak of bullshit). We both might have been breathing fire during Kaiju Sex Time but we didn't choose to do so nor were we there, so to speak.
>>33073641Because he is a protagonist. For my next trick, I shall shit in his hoodie. In the hood, so when he flips it up, he gets turdhat.>>33073621Here you go:There will be very basic control over warp spasm.Low level guys, probably? Shocker could bond with him on the basis of how shit their lives are. Magneto would think he's fuckin' neato, seeing as he is a mutant, and all mutants are beautiful.Dunno any good actors young enough for JJ or the other kids. Cillian Murphy for Creeper. Three stone cold muthafuckas stapled together for Barracuda. Christoph Waltz for Typhon. Ryan Gosling for Laura.Sorta DC Lucifer from his old ongoing. Best Lucifer.Eh. Depends on the circumstances. JJ can potentially go invis and oneshot him.Thirties.Yes.Whoops.Big.At the moment? He's like WWII plane.
>>33073889>has he ever given a specific number or amount of time for atrophication?>That said, while I'm leery of revotes, I am also leery of keeping a power that you'll never use. I'll be watching closely in future, and if it becomes clear that everyone's way too afraid of/disappointed in Draconic Breath (i.e. if it sees like no use), I'll likely have it atrophy away.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30835813/#p30839894
>>33073922>In the hood, so when he flips it up, he gets turdhat.Oh boy! A doody hat!>http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2k3wm_big-boy-finds-a-doody-hat_fun
>>33073889Because phase was dildos anyways, gloves was a matter of $2 and not worth spending half a thread doing, and dragon breath is ultra dildos.
>>33073889>strawmanning so hardIt's not a straw man. You said that a building burning down was prof that JJ used DB. The exact same thing that happened with Rouge also happened to Typhons lab before we bought DB.
>>33073922Are you going to give us a timeframe for atrophication since you clearly stated without use DB will go away?
>>33073922>For my next trick, I shall shit in his hoodie. In the hood, so when he flips it up, he gets turdhat.You are most unkind!
>>33073925>no number no time mentionedand 3 anons that can't let go of a vote is not a majority
>>33073922>For my next trick, I shall shit in his hoodie. In the hood, so when he flips it up, he gets turdhat.I'm going to take the fact that I giggled like a loon at this as proof I need to sleep..
>>33073922Ruling on these posts, please.>>33073889>>33073925>>33073992And the topic of atrophy.
>>33073701No. You just put out enough heat to raze most of the building.>>33073981I'm thinking like ten more threads, I guess. I was kinda hoping you'd hit one of the various opportunities to face JJ's phobia in a dynamic way by now. I'm a little leery of just getting rid of it before you even have a chance to lower the DC.
>>33073992It's 2 more than one anon defending it.>>>33074044Such ad hominem.
>>33073958Alls of those ams dildos, buts dragons are cools.Waits, so it starts off as justs peppers spray? That's nots cool! It's like he's gots a tiny policemans in his mouths that peppers sprays guys!...That's actually sounds kinda cools...
>>33073922>WWII planeThat's pretty damn fast and maneuverable, I assume you mean a one seater and not a b17.
>>33074049>I was kinda hoping you'd hit one of the various opportunities to face JJ's phobia in a dynamic way by now. I'm a little leery of just getting rid of it before you even have a chance to lower the DC.I'd be cool with that. I really want to give it a chance before we consider atrophy.
>>33074098Fuck you, and have a nice evening Anon
>>33074084>Such ad hominem.Oh no! My one true weakness! A guy on the internet acting like he knows about debates!
We bought Draconic Breath on thread #59We've already gone almost 20 threads without using it. Whats 10 more
>>33074049they'll never use if you don't prompt people to use it.Its been awhile since JJ last confronted his pyrophobia. And he seems pretty down on himself right now. how about Laura helps JJ help confront his fear in an attempt to build up some self esteem/confidence.
>>33074158>they'll never use if you don't prompt people to use it.He has put up the option. People haven't chose to do it other like three posts.
>>33074158I'd like that, but then i remember how long it took us to melt water with electricity so I doubt we'll ever get the chance to practice
>>33074151I didn't realize it had been that long already. It's looking more and more like no one will use it.
>>33074193because its in combat and DC18 no bonus scares anons off.I see potential character growth and development with this power and anons want to bitch it away for another fucking offensive power
>>33074049>like ten more threads, I guess.That actually made me recoil a bit. I guess we might have used it if we had a situation where we wanted to 1) Light a group on fire (which JJ would probably not want to do, because who subjects groups to his own phobia?) and 2) If attacking that way was the best option. Pepper-breath on the latest group of armed and armored guys with adamantium clawed lady would probably have gotten us killed.>>33074151It's 10 more. 34% of the threads would have to involve us consciously choosing not to breathe pepper spray. 30/88
>>33074231>I see potential character growth and development with this power and anons want to bitch it away for another fucking offensive powerWe can develop the character without having to roll an 18 or higher with no bonuses.
>>33074258I'm pretty sure if Laura was coaching us through it for practice we'd get a relationship bonus.zero development through sonic scream
>>33074151By the time DB atrophies we will have gone through 1/3rd of the entire quest without using it.
>>33074258We can, but I really like the idea of us setting time aside with Laura every day to try and over come are fear.
>>33074049*JJ tries to confront his fears, rolls a 1 on his will check and force the DC to go up by like two. Pro-DB anons cry bitter, angry tears*
>>33074284>I'm pretty sure if Laura was coaching us through it for practice we'd get a relationship bonus.It is possible, but I doubt it.
>>33074130gonna get samefagged so hard sonicfags...
>>33074315>gonna get samefagged so hard sonicfags...Don't become cancer out of spite. Or any reason, really.
>>33074258Seriously, the "character development" would be done in a fight at a serious disadvantage. If it was something that actually sounds like character development like, Oh no! Kevin's/Layla's/Noriko's/A Sack orphaned puppies! are trapped in a burning building but Creeper's getting away! Who do you choose man?!?You know, something that involves the character on a level beyound "I don't like what's coming out of my face-hole".
>>33074315You mean like the time when people samefagged for Dragon Breath when it was up for a vote?
>>33074315*gonna get samefagged so hard by sonicfags...corrected
>>33074284We don't need DB for phobia practice. We have matches back in the bat cave.
>>33074357Or shit, group therapy time. Like we've helped the absolute shit out of everyone, and maybe Kevin/Gabby/Laura notices we literally have trouble lighting a match without crippling fear (Laura could SMELL that on us). And so they decide to help us with that somehow, I don't know.
>>33074357The "It will help with phobia" is their only argument against atrophy at this point. And, they'll stick to it no matter what anyone says. They refuse to believe JJ is capable of using a match.
>>33074435Yeah.Everyone talks about their fears, anxieties, problems, etc.That sounds like a great idea.
>>33074344>>33074375>taking your greatest fear and turning into your weapon/tool/asset is not character development
>>33074461>thinking he'll easily get over the fear of fireIt's a phobia for a reason. Really fucking terrified of anything to do with that. He's freaked out about stars for fuck's sack.
>>33074435I do really like the idea of the others getting together to help JJ.
>>33074449how come nobody writes in "light a match and confront your phobia?"
>>33074461>trying to use something that you likely have PTSD over in combat at a crucial moment, like a retard, is character development?
>>33074480No one uses the write-in option.
>>33074461I remember when we fought the demon and were losing and then we used fire and won. I liked that. I really like how we took are fear and made it into are weapon.
>>33074461Even if you ignore the phobia. I invite you to read the power description. It's completely fucking useless until level 3.
>>33074509That's not the same as going out in the Scar and breathing hot, volatile gas on someone's face.
>>33074461In a manner that's not only unlikely to succeed, could actually be detrimental in the long run (by adding to the phobia counter, and given JJ's predisposition to crackbitching? It's a Karma Point). >>33074488Even more than that, it's like having PTSD and being expected to HIT SOMEONE WITH THAT PTSD AND MAKE THEM FEEL WHAT YOU DID AND STILL FEAR. Like if JJ told someone he hopes they die in a fire, that would be a "Holy shit, JJ is so pissed his hatred-boner would cockslap the Juggernaut into submission". COLOSSUS JUGGERNAUT.
>>33074540>on someone's faceI meant on some rubble or sticks or something.Mixed up some ideas. My bad.
>>33074480I have... on multiple occasions... before DB was a thing.But there was always more important shit and when a quest get to a certain size write-in options become impossible.
>>33074527And good luck getting people to upgrade it to be even more flammable, likely increasing the DC because it's now actual fire
>>33074488we can use powers out of combat, strawman>>33074478we beat the demon with it. and if JJ's friends help him confront it, he'll probably get a relationship modifier.>>33074548it has to be a nat 1 to be a setback, we have a better chance of passing than critfailing>>33074558I don't why everyone keeps assuming it can only be used on people or in combat
>>33074509That was because we were fighting-demon us, also in a way that built character, because it actually used JJ's backstory, emotions, and generally added to him while fighting the demonic evil-twin.
>>33074579the DC won't increase with level. lies and misinformation go in QTG
>>33074580>I don't why everyone keeps assuming it can only be used on people or in combatSee >>33074558I made a mistake there.
>>33074580Because using it outside of combat is a great idea? At higher levels it's fucking napalm, dude. Do you how fast and how quick that shit burns? Good luck trying to control it while you burn down the rest of the Scar
>>33074580Do you recall the thread where almost every roll had one nat 1 to accompany it? JJ is genetically predisposed to crackbitchery.
>>33074620Seriously, Level TWO in claws or tasers gets more utility. Fire burns shit. Tasers can start fire, weld, charge electronics, nonlethally hit people, etc.
>>33074607Wut. How do you know, you Crusty? JJ at this point only shoots out hot, flammable gases that are not on fire and we need a DC to roll it because of the association, how would shooting actual flames out of your mouth be better? HOW?
>>33074231DB is a purely offensive power, we can't really use it for anything else.Plus it's a non ranged power, occupying our ranged power slot.
>>33074580>we can use powers out of combat, strawman>I don't why everyone keeps assuming it can only be used on people or in combatWhy would we need to use it out of combat? If you want to have a group therapy session matches would be much more reliable. As in less risk of accidentally melting one of our friends faces off.I'm against DB but I could get behind Laura helping us with the phobia.
>>33074608no, every time somebody takes about practicing DB, its met with DC18 no bonus, freeze in combat>>33074624did we roll a one in first 3 in any of the checks today? >>33074662CJ has said the DC decreases with each successful phobia check (2 success make 18)
>>33074679Agreed. Geointuitive vision is a much better ranged power than DB will ever be.
>>33074461That has to be used in open spaces, otherwise we'll set everything on fire.Which we're still vulnerable to by the way.Plus, the mental image of making people explode from the inside.
>>33074713How many times have we rolled a 1 in the first 3 in the past?How many times has it been bad enough to get its own tag on the archive?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Crackbitch
>>33074595who said we can't have character development will training? We'd be training with Laura and every time we've done that it's been nice. One even ended with hand holding,>>33074679The same could be said about Sonic
>all this autism
>>33074713When we use it succesfully, yes. What I am saying is that if we upgrade the power to level two, turning it into actual flames, the DC will likely be harder if we don't already practice on it. At that point, it's actual fire, and probably a hell of a lot more scary for JJ to use
>>33074768Pretty sure we don't vomit JJ's mind, history, and emotional well-being with Dragonbreath.
>>33074713>CJ has said the DC decreases with each successful phobia check (2 success make 18)Crusty also DB doesn't count towards a normal check. A normal phobia check that JJ had no part in starting would require one pass to drop the DC.But, when we first bought DB Crusty said that it would take multiple successful DB passes to count as one normal phobia check.Basically it take three or four Passes to drop the DC but only one crit fail to drop it.
>>33074812>Basically it take three or four PassesHe said multiple. That could mean just two. He never said anything about three or four, I think.And I'm anti-DB.
So its all agreed? Next thread we write in to light matches? maybe ask Laura for help?we can't get shot from matches..right?
>>33074768>The same could be said about Sonic>Knock out walls>Disable weaponry>How about floors, collapse that shit right from under someone.>Crack a locking mechanism.>Make someone shit themselves.Dragonbreath>Everything is now on fire.
>>33074848>The same could be said about Sonic>Knock out walls>Disable weaponry>How about floors, collapse that shit right from under someone.>Crack a locking mechanism.>Make someone shit themselves.you meant strength right?
>>33074812People keep saying that we are more likely to pass than crit fail. When you consider a single roll that's true.But everyone forgets that we need multiple passes. But if we crit fail any of those rolls it would drop it.
>>33074872Strength can't disable things from the inside out or do pinpoint damage. Or crack a locking mechanism without destroying the outside. Or hurt someone taking a hostage AND not hurt the hostage.
>>33074872And with sonic we can do it from a distance.Sonic>dragon breath in range.And lets not forget>This kills the Kimura.
>>33074880do you have hard number or just more speculation?
DB wouldn't be so bad if we also had pyrokinesis on top of it. Then, we could contain brush fires, stop or control fires we didn't cause, etc.
>>33074841>we can't get shot from matches..right?Yes we can.But even if we drop the DC Draconic Breath is still a shit power.Level 1: JJ may project a stream of heat and unstable gases from his mouth that causes acute physical pain and shock to humans, as well as igniting highly flammable substances.Level 2: JJ spits fire. He may expel a short-ranged (less than a meter) tongue of blue flame, or ‘lob’ small, arcing packets of similarly ignited particles over greater distances. His breath may cause immediate second degree burns.Level 3: At this level, JJ may breathe out a long, intense stream of azure fire. It can very quickly cause third degree burns.Level 4: At this level J may widen the breadth of his draconic breath. He becomes capable of very quickly causing fourth degree burns.Level 5: JJ will burn you to ash. His breath is more potent than any military grade flamethrower, able to defeat the heat tolerance of all but few substances.
>>33074809Well I guess that's what words are for. You know the one we speak to convey things at the end are regular training. >>33074848Permanent hearing damage to friends and foes alike.
>>33074872What can dragonbreath do that Taserhands can't?Sonic has stuff that strength can do, sure. But it also has armor-piercing and could possibly break armor-plating off by rattling the joints apart beneath said armor, making it easier to just brute strength it.Meanwhile breathing fire just makes more fire. Once/If we ever got to that point where it could do that.
>>33074918>Level 3: At this level, JJ may breathe out a long, intense stream of azure fire. It can very quickly cause third degree burns.only way to be Godzilla there
>>33074941It's a highly precise power, we don't hit what we don't want to hit.
>>33074951>What can dragonbreath do that Taserhands can't?be hands free
>>33074961Just say it man, we know what you really mean. "Only way to be Dragon, amirite?"
>>33074595>That was because we were fighting-demon us, also in a way that built character, because it actually used JJ's backstory, emotions, and generally added to him while fighting the demonic evil-twin.>>33074768>who said we can't have character development will training? We'd be training with Laura and every time we've done that it's been nice. One even ended with hand holding,>>33074941Well, I sure don't know what you were getting at from my original point then. Hell, I was even Group Therapy Guy >>33074435 and we don't need dragonbreath for that.
>>33074918It's somewhat useful at higher levels but it's a short range damage only attack.It's only good for killing. JJ is not a killer. There are only two people in this entire quest JJ actually wants to kill. Kimura is completely immune to DB. And JJ doesn't need DB to kill creeper. Senses level 5 allows us to get around creepers invisibility so JJ could snap his neck like a twig.
I want an illustration where JJ vomits fire, and accidentally gets some on his coat, then he has to roll around on his coat because he's on fire.
>>33075028>JJ is not a killer.Not always, though there are some villains who need a good skullbashing.
>>33074918And for comparisonSONIC SCREAMJJ develops the ability to emit waves of sonic force from his vocals.Level 1: At this level, JJ may project a high-pitched beam that causes sudden and acute irritation to nearby listeners, and can strike objects with roughly the force of an expert jab.Level 2: At this level, the soundwave may be widened to a meter, and strikes hard enough to easily knock normal humans off their feet. It can be emitted as a high-pitched variant that causes intense pain and, eventually, temporary deafness.Level 3: JJ may now modulate the frequency of his scream, allowing it to displace objects by vibrating them at the right frequency. This makes the power ideal for dismantling machinery, and can cause deep tissue damage to humans.Level 4: At this level, JJ may widen the soundwave to a two meter spread, and can generate a pulse-variation in its frequency, allowing it to pass through some objects without causing damage while harming others. Alternatively, he may project it as a nearly-solid barrage of displaced air, which can seriously damage even hardy constructs.Level 5: At this level, JJ may precisely target the shatterpoints of objects, allowing him to selectively damage different parts of a system without disrupting the rest of it. With enough effort he may generate powerful enough vibrations to cause local seismic activity.
>>33075028>JJ is not a killerThe guy at the docks would say differnetly if he wasn't dead anon....
>>33075011Oh, and I'll even clarify my point, we were literally hitting the bad guy with our backstory. We were decking a demon in the schnozz with our emotional trauma and memories of our friends. In a way that made it as clear as possible, what kind of person JJ is, was, and how he sees his friends and family.
>>33075036But of course, it's napalm, so it doesn't go out.>>33075040Which Dragon breath is shit at. It's good for killing the people we don't actually give a shit about.
>>33075049JJ has killed, yes, but he would need to continue killing people regularly to be considered a 'killer' in that sense
>>33075049Yeah. While he was working for Creeper, while he LIKED Creeper, and to save Creeper's life. AND it also terrified the ever-living shit out of him.
>>33075036Ya, JJ is immune to the fire that comes directly out of his face but has no protection against secondary fires DB starts.It would be very easy for JJ to kill himself if he uses DB inside a building.
>>33075077Now Laura? Laura is a killer; she consistently uses her powers to kill, and has very little qualms to do so.
>>33075011I was just talking about overcoming JJ's fear of fire and how character development can come from that. I'm not the one who brought Dragon Breath into it.
>>33075063it can kill Creeper. He isn't fireproof.heck, the large area attack some anons are so worried about would make killing the hard to locate Creeper easier
>>33075115And possibly hurt us or the people around us, or people who had nothing to do with the conflict.
DIRECTED RADIATION PULSERequires: Level 3 Draconic Breath, Level 2 Photosynthetic Biology.Cost: 2Drawing on his stored reserves of sunlight, JJ can choose to convert his fiery breath into a blast of solar radiation. This coherent beam of radiant energy lacks the area of effect that Draconic Breath usually allows for, but has exceptional focused power.I like the solar beam..
>>33075099Laura was literally designed, trained, and molded into being a killer. JJ was a well-to-do mugga that fell in the wrong crowd, did things he deeply regrets, and is trying to make better, but every step of the way he tried to help those he cared about. Laura's a killer, she accepts it, and she may be trying to do better thanks to JJ. But for the sake of JJ, she will kill without hesitation.
>>33075095>Crusty is going to kill JJ from one bad roll
>>33075115It can but we don't need it. Senses level 5 allows us to get around creepers invisibility so JJ could just walk up to creeper and snap his neck like a twig.
>>33075147I don't think it's worth 7 points that we could use on other stuff.>>33075157I wouldn't doubt it.
>>33075147And costs fuck tons more points for effects we could easily get from sonic.
>>33075169the thread would have ended 70ish threads ago if so
>>33075169Did you miss the part where we failed our 'don't fucking die' rolls like 4 times after getting shot with a shotgun?
>>33075147It costs 7 points anon. We could make JJ bullet proof or give him adamantium claws for that price.
>>33075207Part 2 has more X points than part 1
>>33075207Actually adamantium claws only costs 5 points.
Honestly, I have a feeling that Kimura can't take an adamantium stab from someone with super strength.
In Kyle/Yost X-force, Kimura got knocked down by a bullet from a handgun.Superstrength is enough to scramble her brains and give her fatal internal injuries
>>33075113It all started from a discussion of how Dragon breath is bad for character development branching from >>33074231 .>>33074344 was me pointing out how it's bad for that. My argumentative stance was due to miscommunication to the post you linked to me be very dissimilar to the example I gave (training chat and warm-fuzzies not like literally punching something with your backstory and weaponizing how you feel about characters).
>>33075234Actually she can
>>33075253and healing 2 fixed 3rd degree burns over night
>>33075253So, the power to recover from almost dying will save us from a threat larger than a scared housewife with a shotgun. Seems vaguely legit.
>>33075292>>33075303Sorry. Fucked up on remembering 3rd degree being high instead of low.
>>33074344Let's be fair, a sack of orphaned puppies would just be night of good barbecue to JJ. A loss, but an easy sacrifice.
>>33075272And in another one she wasn't fazed by being thrown 10 miles.>>33075287Neither Wolverine nor Laura possess super strength, the limits of her skin are unknown mostly because she hasn't gone up against anyone who could damage her.Pretty sure anyone with a high enough superstrength can just crush her into a small ball of flesh, given that her skin is still just as flexible as normal skin.
>>33075287At our level of super strength though?Like I feel that Spider-Man could draw blood from her if we gave him an adamantium shiv.
>>33075149I get the feeling JJ would kill again to protect the people he cares about, but would feel guilty about it afterwards. Maybe an exception for someone like Creeper, who has committed some serious atrocities.
>>33075157The stakes have been that high before, yes.
>>33075329how fast was she thrown, we had a physics anon go over this once...
>>33075272Doubtful. Hellion once propelled her twenty-something miles up, and impact with the ground didn't kill her. Barely seemed to daze her.
>>33075329Also, that comic issue was horseshit. She's only supposed to have super tough skin and moderate endurance, that shit should have killed her.
>>33075352>I get the feeling JJ would kill again to protect the people he cares about, but would feel guilty about it afterwards.Yeah.Though I think he'd celebrate after killing Creeper, from what he's seen in the last few threads.
>>33075367It was by the same writer that came up with her. Yost was writing that book at the time.
>>33075361Fast enough to go 20 miles in a rather short amount of time.If there wasn't enough force in it to push her past, she still hit maximum velocity, which anon said was like being power punched by mike tyson over every cubic inch of your body.
>>33075325Yeah, I was scraping the bottom of the barrel for heart-wrenching decisions and people usually care more about random puppies than random babies. But puppies in a fire, JJ would feed his hobo-clan well until Noriko asks what the meat is. I said Noriko because it's funnier if the Asian asks about eating dog, because racist jokes.>>33075352JJ would, I agree, but I think he'd hesitate and then find his resolve to do what it takes to defend those he loves. Laura I feel would react with KShanksBye, and then maybe think about how JJ would react to this followed by protecting him from it.
>>33075206Sub dermal armor plus a level 3 healing factor and bad aim on the part of the wife. And given that it probably still killed us for a few hours, I'm wondering if there are going to be any longer term ramifications for JJ, like that demon getting at chance to scent his soul again or a greater propensity to get caught up in supernatural shit.
>>33075415Nah, you got your racial stereotypes wrong.Chinese eat cats, Koreans eat dogs.Japanese eat dolphins and whales.
>>33075400Yost needs to keep his shit consistent.
>>33075402but Mike can't do six tons.at the very least we can do pick.
>>33075427Plus we were left for dead and stuffed in a trunk for quite a while. If we were in a REALLY bad situation, someone would have doubletapped.It would be cool if we got caught up in magic shit, just a little dip, not enough to go from full-mugga to full-magic. We're more of an X-____ comic than a Doctor Strange, but we could do a crossover or similar Marvel-wide Event that involves something magical and is barely referenced ever again. Or Kevin turns into a vampire for good or something.
>>33075482No, Anon.Mike tyson power punch, concentrated within a single cubic inch.Like, if you put a metal rod at the end of each one of tysons arms.
>>33075504>max out agility>put everything into our fists
>>33075521If we got fist spines we'd be that guy from Terraformers.
>>33075521We need more strength for this but we ALMOST have the senses.
what else is in danger of atrophying?when was the last time we used the claws or Tasers anyway?
>>33075578>TasersA few hours ago in-quest.
>>33075578Tasers was last thread or the thread before.Claws is every fist fight, they're assumed to be out mostly because them not in a fist fight is stupid unless we're trying to hide our mutant nature.
>>33075578JJ uses tasers to charge up his phone.
>>33075578I think a couple threads ago? We've been using those powers fairly often. We used the tazer hands to knock the dad out, and our claws to fuck up the Jack lab
>>33075603did we vote to use them?
>>33075549I swear there's a power for this.
>>33075578We use taser about every other day to charge ours and everyone elses cell phones. And we used claws to cut the cables that those people in the basement were hooked up to.
