And you’ve managed a little progress so far. Like, for example, you learned that Fredrick Foswell is just some reporter for the Daily Bugle. As the least high profile name, he was the easiest to cross off your list, but other than that you’ve had to search a little harder.The closer you get to the Kingpin, the closer you are to finally finding Felicia>roll me an investigate- 1d20+8 DC 20/23/25/28In the meantime you’ve been otherwise focused on>[ ]patrolling with Venom>[ ]Keeping an eye on the Ghost Rider>[ ]Working on a project at home>[ ]Working on a project at Stark Industries>[ ]Helping Doctor Spyral on a project>[ ]relaxing

>>34963721No, thank you.
>>34963721No, save the spec point.Also, no best bro time. Fucking coin flip.
The past two weeks, when you weren’t looking into the Kingpin, were used looking for the Ghost Rider. It took the first entire week to find her and track her down. She seems to have blended in admirably- she has her own apartment and identification. When asked on how she obtained them, you were calmly told it wasn’t important.Well, it was important, but when pressed her eyes got all flame like and she just as calmly repeated it before offering you a drink. Seems like she has an identity here now of an independently employed adult… somehow. At he very least, she assured you that she didn’t do anything really illegal or kill anyone. In the meantime she seems to have begun assembling the outfits and décor of someone out of a heavy metal album. When asked if she was some sort of demon she only shrugged with a noncommittal ‘maybe.’ Regardless, there was some join patrolling- her on her somehow obtained motorcycle and you on your webs. Only mainly smalltime crooks got stopped, but there seems to passing on the word that criminals are being targeted by Spiderman and the Ghost Rider.Somehow the Criminals preferred you over the scary skull ghost girl. Surprising.Ghost Rider Trust Levels increased.As for your investigation, you’ve trimmed down the names. Obidiah Stane is dead, so he’s clearly out. Fredrick Foswell was also off the list. Upon researching and asking around, it seems like Roderick Kingsley last was seen a year ago boarding a plane to South America. Bolivar Trask has constantly been traveling, looking into research and other genetic projects lately. While it could be him, its unlikely from how public he makes himself. That, and his stature is rather distinctive. Not entirely ruled out but you’re ninety percent sure it isn’t him.>1/2
>>34964401Why would you bump without content?
>>34964479 Justin Hammer’s apparently been working with the Military after Stark’s fallout with them, so he’d probably have to keep himself clean while working his way into Stark’s old military contracts. Not entirely ruled out, but highly unlikely.That really only left you withL. Thompson LincolnWilliam Fisk Both apparently private men who donate to charities and are known philanthropists. Personal info on them is rather scarce. The only thing that you or Gwen have managed to find is that Lincoln one had a criminal record that was quietly erased, making him the bigger suspect.>Current Plans?

>>34964737Yeah, I just think the burned letter we found at Felecia's saying "-isk" might be some sort of clue.
>>34964691I've been trying not to use meta-knowledge - but even then, who says he's not? You're on Cosgrove's Wild Ride, baby.Besides, even if he wasn't Kingpin, and if you're right about him still being Tombstone, he might lead us closer to Kingpin anyway.
>>34964777Oh, I completely forgot about that.Then yeah, let's focus on the Fisk investigation.
>>34964777It could also be a clue that she found the same leads as us and was investigating one of them who wasn't Fisk when she was forced to get out of dodge.You know what they say about assumptions, anon.

Shame I won't be able to stay up to see what results from all this. Good luck with Kingpin and all your other Spidery endeavors, gentlemen.

Rolled 69 (1d100)>>34965222Tell her about Venom too.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>34965222...yes, we need to find something
>>34965250Oh 69. A Very sexy number for patrolling with Gwen.
>>34965222Nahhhh, lets keep going.
>>34965222Yes, use the point.
>>34965222...Your cryptic remarks fill me with dread......Use it.

>>34965250>>34965247>>34965245Alrighty.So, there seems to be intent to use the last point, so use the last spectacular point Y/N? and Reroll or auto lower success?
>>34965445Can we spend a Venom Point instead?
>>34965445Don't reroll, let us take our knocks like a man. A Spider-Man.
>>34965445I can't decide.
>alright no spec point used, writing.
>>34965554Because web slinging while hammered would be the funniest goddamn thing we'd ever see Spidey.
>>34963184Oh, hey cosgrove, Hows it going?
Overall, while looking into L. Thompson Lincoln, there’s almost nothing to be found. His books are clean, his home’s in a respectable neighborhood and keeping an eye on him, there’s nothing that really provokes your interest. There’s the issue that whatever his criminal record was is sealed tight and nobody will talk about it, but other than that there’s nobody willing to say anything bad about him. He tips well, but is overall very private.Maybe that’s why when things go bad while patrolling and talking with the Scarlet Spider, that things go wrong. Firstly, the fact that Venom’s working with you isn’t something Gwen’s happy about. At all, she views him as a threat if he loses control and based on what you’ve seen… she sorta has a point. But, overall, the two of you can’t seem to find much of anything on Lincoln. He’s basically clean.After one last patrol, the two of you are conversing on a rooftop when you begin to hear the sound of a helicoptor. Probably a news copter. But what distracts you first is the police bulletin that’s got you alarmed. >“In pursuit now. Repeat. Fugitive Spider-man has robbed the-”And then your precognition and Gwen’s spider-sense go off. Someone’s gunning for you as you hear the sound of something like a rocket in the distance as the helicopter has gotten louder.>roll me reflex- 1d20+6

>>34965923Noooow we need that re-roll
>>34965923...Okay, I'm done rolling for the night.
>>34965876Guys, this is why we need to make that secondary suit based on the Noir suit.THIS SHIT. RIGHT HERE.Call ourself Slinger, so when idiots decide to start a Spider-Hunt we can clear our name without fucking getting missiles shot at us.
>>34965940Ones aren't an automatic failure, they're just extra Parker luck.
>>34965942At least unlike some assholes *cough* Wrenloft *cough* you can take a hint. I apologize for my post >>34965930
>>34965942Would tripping and accidentally hitting the reset button on that counter constitute a major fuckup?
>>34966024Not on the Pym scale. If only one person dies it's still a minor fuck up on the Pym scale.
>>34965923Truly this is the Peter Parker Quest we know and love.
>>34965970Oh look you're still here, Nobody else gives a fuck.
>>34965970Wrenloft is allright I've seen him roll 100's and 20's... it's almost as if the dice... are... random.
>>34966077The Pym Scale is the best.
>>34966115The dice aren't random, they hate you and everything you love. Any time we get a good roll, it's an accident and the dice are trying to get us to lower our guard so they can ass rape us again.
>>34966115There's also the whole string of 1s and shitty rolls and his refusal to just stop. I'm not saying he should never roll again, but sometimes lady luck is not with you and instead of being a little shit he should step back and let other people roll.I still stand by what I said a while ago that more angst has been brought upon this game from Wrenloft and his shitty rolls than anything else.

Dodging away from the incoming explosive, you and Gwen move out of the way of the explosion. Unfortunately, which unharmed by the blast the Scarlet Spider didn’t move quite fast enough and found herself slammed into the side of the wall from the sheer force of the explosion with a grunt. Seemingly unhurt, she gets back up as the helicopter continues to move at a distance.On the open side door is a familiar figure standing and being handed another Rocket Launcher by a subordinate. The Silver Sable- a Russian mercenary with a reputation of never failing a job- seems to be rumors of being a child soldier. Who taught her or why is unknown from what you’ve seen, but she definitely seems to be out to get you.Which, considering that there seems to be an imposter out to ruin you, this is really a bad time for this crazy woman to try to kill you. Almost amused Silver Sable watches you, waiting to see how you’ll react. Ah crap, you said that out loud, didn’t you?”“Yeah, and that too.” With an amused voice, Gwen keeps her distance as she glances towards you for a split second. “Hey, what’s the plan?”>Run>Take care of this, I’ve got to stop a bank robber out to ruin my rep>I’ve got this you take care of the fake Spider-man>We’ll take care of this>Call venom have him get here/take care of the fake>Call Ghost Rider have her get here/ Take Care of the fake>also,roll me another reflex 1d20+6

Rolled 9 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>34966300>>Call venom have him get here/take care of the fakeInclude a codeword or something so if we run into Flash after this, he won't attack us. If he encounters a Spidey who doesn't code word, assume is fake.

>Alrighty, gonna assume venom will be sent to deal with the imposter then?Unless people want something else, I'll start writing
>>34966521Yeah, Venom can handle that. It won't get awkward at all.
>>34966398Nope.>FLASH>He's a miracle!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS4_Z84-rRE
>>34966521Ask the Silver Sable if she ever knew her father.
>shit personal emergency means I've got to call it here guys. Sorry.
>>34966567I know a certain someone who had this played at his wedding...
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>34966567Seconded.>>34966639Good luck dude. Midnight races to the ER are always fun. Stay safe and I hope everyone is allright.
>>34966567Maybe it'd be "Flash, tunder" at first, but then that's decided to be too obvious and it's changed to "Flash, He's a miracle."
>>34966639I hope everything is okay Cos.
>>34966639Night. Hope it's nothing too bad.
>>34966521So do you think the impostee is the Chaemelion?(sorry if its mispelled)
>>34966639Good luck, Cos. Hope it's nothing too bad.
>>34966639Good night, hope its nothing to serious
cos here onphone. something might be up with my brother so I'm heading out not sure how long I'll be but probably can't continue tonight
>>34966639Didn't an Impostor Spider-Man kill Ultimate George Stacy?
>>34966739It could be if the Kingpin got a hold that we searching for him. He would probabl to frame us in order to mske it hard to investigate him.
>>34966788Family first, don't worry about us.
>>34966804Then we obviously need to take selfies of ourselves while fighting Silver Sable, to form an ironclad alibi.
>>34966788I hope everything is ok, Cosgrove.
>>34966788Hopefully it's nothing serious. If you can't get back, don't worry about it.We can wait for totally awesome playing as Venom against Fake Spiderman.
>>34968432Damn this thread is still here?
>>34971547Happens from time to time.
You betrayed our trust, Cosgrove. Undo this retcon, let us move during your cutscenes, and give us our little sister Stella/Fenrir back.
>>34974421I second Stella. At least let some sort of plot point come up where we can get her back. I want her back.
>>34974689I... I apparently missed something.. Do I need to go back a few threads?
>>34974716You missed the best several threads ever. Stella was the best Imoutu ever. I don't usually like those kinda characters, but...
>>3497479How far back we talking 2-3 threads? 6?
>>34974859Look in the archives. We meet stella when we travel through time.
>>34971547Maybe it's a vain hope he'll return to it?
>>34974421>give us our little sister StellaYes.Please.Best sister.
>>34974892WE brought her back didn't we? Last I remmeber of her was fighting with Venom... did she go somewhere?
>>34979339There was a Retcon. She went poof...though it's implied we could get her back. Though, ICly, we have no memory of her.We should contact GR and see if there's some way to poof her back.
>>34979458wha...what? I don't remember reading that at all...
>>34979339I'd suggest catching up. If last thing you remember is the Time Travel Road Trip, begin on Issue #32. I can't think of any other times you could possibly be talking about, unless you mean Issue #45.
>>34979483Then catch up
>>34979743The last thing I clearly remember involving the little sister was her saying "NO" or something like that and saving peter from going rage venom mode. I'm guessing I was in the wrong sections of the archives and seriously missed something
>>34979974Well then, I think you'll want to begin from Issue #45, just in case, so you don't spoil yourself on any crucial plot points.
>>34980305Thanks anon, I've apparently got some reading to do.
>>34966639Best of luck Cosgrove.
>>34974689Again having another magic encounter might trigger it, or having a Wizard like Doom or Strange Love or Madame Web(at some point) look into our souls and see what they can tell us about it would help very much. Also Peter would have a reason to look into that chain in hi soul considering Rock told him that it wasn't a part of him or his powers.
>>34988063Ghost Rider is still our best option.
>>34988063>Strange LoveI want to see this version of Strange
>>34988063Also can someone tell me whats the difference between Flash's Venom and the Venom Peter wore and lost control of. Also this is the other issue I've been wondering about Flash's symbiote. Cosgrove never gave a backstory of where it came from, and that it was clearly another symbiote that was different to Peter's. I also want to know about the symbiote he wore in the future, it seemed normal and not a all consuming monster always yelling HUNGER!, and it did part away from Peter on its own when he was heading back to the past, thats very different compared to the symbiote he wears in the present which didn't want to part with him.
Okay, I archived the thread because surprisingly no one had up to this point.
>>34988276The one Peter wore was the cancer suit his father developed. The one Flash has was kept in Richard Parker's suitcase as what looked to be an ink bomb. Flash's is the alien symbiote that the cancer suit is based on.
>>34988063Or maybe having another encounter with Chinese Salesman. Oh the suffering.
>>34988422>Stella comes back>But she doesn't remember us
I feel like having another symbiote fight. Or give Flash a similar moment like this. (Except maybe the killing, although Flash becomes a soldier so I guess it's all good an dandy for him.
