>>35975316I sincerely hope we can ara ara, this time. As nice as Makoto is, I wanna pump some time into improving our spy mother.
>>35975441I kinda wamt to know if there's a way to cure her leg so she can become a Rider.Either that or her Lockseed's Armor gives her strenght-augmenting Power Armor and all her finishers are kicks.Bonus points if she looks like Rider 1, complete with Kickass scarf.
>>35975316>and officially the longest running KR Quest on /tg/! /confettiAt 6 threads. Well, that's not too surprising.
>>35975545>>Either that or her Lockseed's Armor gives her strenght-augmenting Power Armor and all her finishers are kicks.I'd rather have a suit that specializes in ranged attacks and fighting without moving about too much.
>>35975580I don't mind the fanfare all that much. It IS true, and our quest runner ain't so bad.
>>35975545There is a Kamen Rider V1 Lockseed, so we can give her the first Rider's armor. In theory, anyway, I doubt we'll get the Legend Rider Lockseeds. They are of dubious canonicity.>>35975589So Kachidoki, then?
>>35975316Hey, DJ Sagara?Is there any chance of one of the Seven Legendary Riders appearing?I kinda want to see Makoto get her ass kicked by Kamen Rider 1 and then watch as he teaches her how to become a great warrior of Justice before disappearing again.
>>35975684 There's always those crossover movies...
>>35975684I'd rather Faiz's cast shows up, since Yggdrasil is so similar to Smart Brain in most regards. Or Agito, to watch Ryouma blow his top at belt induced evolution that he had nothing to do with
>>35975589>>35975613Yeah, but the image of the MILF using an armor resembling that of the oldest Rider is just too amusing, and it'd be even better if people confuse her for the original and believe the rumors and tales are true.And then Takeshi Hongo comes to Zawame to investigate the strange rumors of Riders fighting each other
Please no crossovers until we finish the story.
>>35975705I can't wait for those movies.I'm imagining /tg/ trying to deal with the clusterfuck of Riders and villains running around and wrecking shit. It'll be glorious.
>>35975316>>35975316>Recap:You are Makoto Kinushima, Armored Rider Raid, and yesterday was a very strange day. Still recovering from your injuries to the Green Rider in the Forest, you performed spectacularly despite them on your first day at your job at Charmant. The owner, Patissier Alfonzo, was disappointed to hear that you needed to go down to part-time work due to your responsibility as an Armored Rider.After work, you went to visit your mother, Erina Kinushima, at work at Yggdrasil Corp, as well as spend some time checking on Hase. Meeting up with a diehard Raid Wild fan at the receptionist's desk, your spirits were lightened a bit before being brought right back down to earth by seeing Hase in a quarantine room, comatose and looking to be in mortal danger. Now finding him completely out of commission, you cement your resolve to completely wipe out the Forest and its danger to the residents of Zawame City. Conferring with your mother, you decide to propose an alliance to Team Gaim and its respective Armored Rider.The Alliance proposal isn't going so well, when Gaim's wrapped up in its own political struggle facing off against a looming massive alliance against Baron and its lackeys. Kouta Kazuraba, returning from his hiatus and allied with Gaim, seems happy to meet you for the first time, but after hearing the tales and pleas of help from you and Honda, the current leader of Raid Wild, he proposes that the Green Rider was the one that critically damaged Ryoji Hase, not an Inves as previously thought...Things are looking to be changing quick.>Choice in next post.
>>35975705What about the non-crossover movie? Technically it's canon, it's just that everyone's memories of it are erased.
>>35975864>PLAYER SELECT:[ ] Makoto - continue negotiations with Kouta and Gaim for alliances against the Forest and Baron[ ] Erina Kinushima - ???[ ] Other (write in)>Vote rulings: First to five, or highest number of responses within 10 minutes. If a skill check is required, the choice will be selected first, and then the skill check will be conducted afterwards with best of five rolls of 1d20. Getting a 20 at any time in the skill check results in a critical success and overrides all other responses. Getting a 1 at any time results in a critical failure, and is treated the same. If there is a crit success and crit failure, they cancel each other out and the remaining rolls are judged.
>>35975905>[X] Erina Kinushima - ???I'd like to continue the conversation with Kouta, but given how much people are interested in playing as Erina I figure we should get some time spent as her in while we have the opportunity.
>[X]Erina KinushimaI'm thinking we can eventually get to three point where we just alternate between ara ara and ORA ORAAAAA. Maybe mother on even threads, daughter on odd threads, or something like that.
>>35975986> get to three point> threeCan you tell I'm posting from a phone and getting thwarted by shitty autocorrect?

>>35976158>>35976158>PLAYER CHANGE: ERINA KINUSHIMAYou are Erina Kinushima, and today is a good day. At least, y'know, as good of a day as it can be when the Executive Chairwoman is still around. And not de-- I MEAN. Not doing other things far elsewhere.Mako-chi visited you last night, after spending some time with the new patient in the Medical wing, Ryoji Hase. She looked extremely distraught about this entire deal, but with the advice you offered, she seemed to be doing better. At least, from the last time you saw her. Now, however, it seems that you're the one with worry.If Hase, his infection, and Mako-chi's care for him are this tied to her Beat Riding... not to mention Chairwoman Naruya's seeming glee for the success of the Beat Riding culture turning into exploitation for money. None of this is sitting right with you, and as a powerful figure in Yggdrasil in your own right, it may fall to you to find out more, and see if there's anything to be done.You spin slowly in your chair at your desk, as you think...>CHOICE[ ] Speak to Takatora Kureshima, the head of R&D, to find out more about the actual technology with the Drivers and Lockseeds[ ] Talk around the office to try to gather gossip and rumors.[ ] Other (write in)
>>35976325If we're high enough on the ladder, we can risk talking to Takatora. I want to risk it, but I don't know if we're in a good enough position in the work place.
>>35976325>[X] Speak to Takatora Kureshima, the head of R&D, to find out more about the actual technology with the Drivers and Lockseeds>>35976351It's been mentioned before that Erina is actually friends with Takatora, or at least as much friends as Mr. Hawk-Tiger is with anyone. I think we can afford a conversation with him about the Drivers. It's no secret that our daughter is one of the Armored Riders, so he shouldn't find anything suspicious about our interest.
>>35976417Then let's go and be a good mom. Time to drum up some info.>Talk to Takatora Kureshima. Also bring some coffee. That guy is too stressed for his own good.

>>35976639Art indeed! This is a rough quick sketch of a famous scene from the quest's second episode! With a twist of course I'll clean it up, ink it, and scan it in later.
>>35976739>Hase BirdHow majestic.
>>35976739>And Here, deep in the darker regions of the Helheim Forest, we can find the Majestic Hase Bird.>If you listen closely... you can hear...>'Haaaaaaaseeeeee'>There! That is a Makoto Dragon calling for its partner.>Makoto Dragons and Hase Birds have a symbiotic relationship, where the Dragon protects the Bird and his flock, while the Hase gives its partner easier access to the fruits and Seeds the Makoto Dragon so loves.
>>35976938You just made my day!
>>35976938Ah man. That's hilarious.
>>35976938That was great.
>>35976639Takatora Kureshima... yes, if anyone's a good source to know more about the Beat Riding and the tech that is getting inserted into the fights, he's the best one. You order yourself a couple cups of coffee - one black with a couple sugars, the other with plenty of cream but no sugar at all - and bring them with you on your quest to the R&D Department.>SCENE: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENTThe journey to Taka-chan's office is arduous, and your leg is feeling weak by the time you're knocking on the office door. It's clear enough that he's surprised by your appearance - you didn't even call ahead! - but the very faint hint of a smile that graces the corner of his lips relieves you instantly of any worry. He opens the door for you...>TAKATORA: "Erina. A surprise to see you, what brings you?">ERINA: "Hoi, Taka-chan. Just thought I'd drop by, bring you some pick-me-up juice!"The blush that paints his cheeks is positively adorable, as he wheels on his heel to face away and stride back to his chair. A little faster than when he came to open the door. And was he covering his eyes?>ERINA: "Ara ara~ Taka-chan, something wrong?"He quickly takes a seat, shaking off the blush as best as he can while you sit across from him and picking up the black coffee with sugar. >TAKATORA: "Erina, we're at work...">ERINA: "Kay...">TAKATORA: "On the clock...">ERINA: "Kay...">TAKATORA: "Stop calling me that name!!">ERINA: *maniacal laughter*>TAKATORA: *Sigh* "...so what is it that you need, Erina?">CHOICE[ ] Ask about Drivers and their origin[ ] Ask about Lockseeds[ ] Ask about any information involving distribution of equipment[ ] Other (Write-in)

>>35977390Also added to the reply.
Ok, Erina NEEDS to be drawn. Anyone have an idea/preference for what she looks like? I'll see about sketching her after class.
>>35977583A more professional Makoto, in a power suit and clean hair. Bob-cut, so that she doesn't have to worry about ponytails. Leg brace and a cane, maybe the cane's used for more than walking.
>>35977583My mental image of Erina has her with Round Anime Glasses, fluffy brown jair amd wearing a doctor's coat over a turtleneck sweater.For maximum cute.
>>35977665>fluffy brown jair amdI don't have enough facepalms to convey how ashamed I am.I meant fluffy brown Hair And wearing a doctor's coat.
>>35977583My mental image have been spoiled by the "let's ship our daughter" so all I can imagine is a slightly older ~araara Rinko.

Takes a sip, reclines in his chair, and considers the question.>TAKATORA: "Lockseeds are, well... harvested, you could say. It's not a manmade device, which helps cut costs and production values. They come from a Forest called Helheim, behind the portals the Lockseeds summon. Hand-in-hand with Inves.">TAKATORA: "As for the Drivers, they're meant for the securing and resistance to INves and Lockseeds themselves. Inves are powerful if not kept in check, and the Drivers are intended to resist the Inves going out of control.">ERINA: "Are the Inves that much of a threat?">TAKATORA: "Yes. As you surely have seen, the more powerful Inves can easily break out, sometimes even with all the normal precautions in place. Hence, the Riders..."You get the sense that Takatora's not telling the entire truth...>CHOICE[ ] PRESS the issue.[ ] Ask a DIFFERENT QUESTION.[ ] Other (write in)

>>35977583Slightly shorter than Makoto, both because of actual height and the fact that walking with the cane leaves her a bit stooped. Professional suit jacket on top. Tends to wear knee-length skirt rather than pants because it means the brace doesn't bunch up the fabric beneath and get uncomfortable.

Is there any information you can give me tp help Makoto? I know that interfering could get us both in a lot of trouble, but please, put yourself in my position. How would you feel if you knew Mitsuzane was fighting monsters from another dimension? There has to be something I could do that won't disrupt the project."
>>35977954No need to tell that to everyone.Sure, he knows this already, but he doesn't know we know.The best way to act here is to look like a clueless and worried mother who noticed some weird bruises on her daughter after she got back from dancing and playing those Inves Game things.We are just so Worried! What did our daughter get herself in? Is it dangerous? Is there any way we can help her?Remember, she may not be on Her Majesty's Secret Service, but that doesn't mean Erina can't fool people.We are a Competent Ara Ara~, the Clueless Moe is just for show.
>>35978082I just wanted to guilt trip him with Micchy. That's a weak point for him.
>>35977948You lean forward in the seat, steepling your hands together by the fingertips.>ERINA: "Taka-chan, I--">TAKATORA: "Erina." >ERINA: *SIGH* "Takatora-/san/, I'm asking because I'm worried. If these Drivers are intended to resist the Inves, then why are they being marketed and used for fights between people? And why isn't this stopped?">TAKATORA: "As far as I know, Sid has tried to stop this by moderating the pre-existing fights to utilize no combat, and instead be measured by races..." Takatora's looking down at his coffee, and you know that he's not telling the full truth still. You press further, scooting closer to his desk and resting your elbows against the desk.>ERINA: "...My daughter's involved in these games, Taka-san. She's come home with bruises and injuries. I don't know if she's a full-fledged Rider or just involved in the Games on the side, but this makes me extremely concerned. Is this dangerous for her? Is there any way we can help her? What if Micchy-san was involved in this too--?"Takatora nearly slumps against the backing of his chair, sighing loudly. He stares at his coffee again, then back at you. You're not sure if it's frustration, pity or understanding you see in his eyes.>TAKATORA: "Look, Erina, I get your concern. And I have my own concerns as well. But I'm not the one in full charge of this project. The Chairwoman's the one that's been pushing this further, and all we can do is follow her orders. You /know/ how she's like when she's pissed off, and we'd both be in a better position to not provoke her.">CHOICE[ ] OBJECT!

If you're gonna stand in my way, I'm going to find ways to help my daughter, and anyone else who gets involved."He sighs and puts his coffee down, sitting up once more.>TAKATORA: "Listen, Erina, this Rabbit Hole is deep and dark. It's full of terror, danger, and I don't know if you'll be able to stand up against all of it. Joke unintended."Cripple jokes. Funny.

If the experiments aren't conducted to figure out about the power of those wearing the Drivers, we're going to doom our world. And I'm not joking.

>>35978896WARNING WARNING WARNINGI am currently in class, so replies will be extremely slow/on pause until class is over. In the meantime, feel free to continue to talk OOC in the thread
>>35978896I never paid much attention to them before, but those fruit armors look so goddamn silly.
>>35979052Some do look better than others, I grant you.By the way, for those who haven't seen it yet, here's Duke's upcoming Dragonfruit Energy Arms.
>>35979052And Gaim's even one of the better looking armors.
>>35979161I mostly like the armor designs, personally. The only really bad ones, in my opinion, are Banana, Kiwi and Pineapple. And only one of those is a standard form instead of a situational one. Kaito was damn lucky to get the Lemon Energy Lockseed.
>>35979151I swear to god it looks like Ryouma's now a character from Metal Gear with that mask.
>>35979209Nah, Ornac and Walnut are shitty. Durian is an acquired taste.
>>35979216He's a cyborg in the movie. I'm not even joking. And that's not even the first time in canon his body's been altered for science!
>>35979151And here's a close up.
>>35979151>>35979216Will this be our mid-season upgrade?Please say yes, that incredible 2smooth4u Energy Lockseed voice is so good.
>>35979248Oh son of a bitch, he really is going full Jetstream.>>35979378Maybe. Don't want to lock ourselves into one Lockseed usage, it pays to spread out a bit.
>>35979151>Dat mask>Dat little toy bow>Dat cape or whatever that oramge thing on his back is supposed to be>Dat... Dat... Everything else.Like I said, goddamned Silly.Hell, I've seen some Power Rangers monsters that looked less pointlessly spiky than this thing.I prefer this quest's version of the Dragonfruit Arms.>>35979378I'd be okay with that, if we ditch the bow and get a better color scheme.
>>35979151>>35979292It's orange.... reddish orange... So, it looks to be based on an Orange Dwarf Dragonfruit instead of a normal dragonfruit like ours.I may be biased, but like ours better.
>>35979457I have to agree on perfering ours than that official one
>>35979415Ah, Melon did just fine until he got ran over by sentiments during Melonbowl.>>35979422We wouldn't look like that outside of the chest, the head is always modeled after the baseline form. In our case, as long as it's a fresh Genesis Driver, the head/mask should be far more similar to what we have right now if Shin Zangetsu is any indication.
>>35979457I like both for different reasons, mostly cosmetic.I wasn't aware there were different varieties of dragonfruit, though. I'm glad, makes ours a bit more unique. It's also appropriate, when you consider the Melon Lock Seeds. Normal is a honeydew, while Melon Energy is a cantaloupe.
>>35979457It's not bias, my friend. That's called good taste.Ornate armor is great, but my inner armor geek is frothing with barely repressed Rage.I mean, look at those spikes on the shoulder armor! He's asking someone to grab him there, pull him off balance and stab him on his unprotected sides.And that helmet. Dear god, that helmet! Why does he need that crown thingy on top of it?And don't get me started on that cape-thing!
>>35979378Skipping Jinba for "Determination/Kettei Arms" to be our Kachidoki is clearly the way forward.
>>35979578Yes, but can we agree that the chest/shoulder/everything but the head armor looks cool? That's all I want, Anon. That, but with our headpiece on it.>>35979588I'd prefer the Genesis Driver, honestly. Something about it just feels cooler and more suave.
>>35979529I didn't know there were different varieties either until I looked it up trying to figure out why they made it orange and not magenta.>>35977356On a side note, I present to you all the Arara Snake!Concept art for best mom will come later depending on time constraints. If I don't get it done today, I'll post it both on my twitter and on the thread next week for discussion and tweaks.
>>35979578Speaking of the cape thing...
>>35979630>Yes, but can we agree that the chest/shoulder/everything but the head armor looks cool?Actually, yeah.This is a Tokusatsu, silly looking suits are to be expected. Encouraged, even.My biggest problem with the armor is the color scheme and the silly looking bow.even the cape can look good.I think all it needs is a new helmet and maybe redesign the right shoulder so the... whatever those things sticking out of it are called... are smaller, or at least face inwards instead of jutting outwards.
>>35979709Huh. It actually looks better than the first pic suggested. Maybe if it were longer...Yeah, longer and more reminiscent of wings would be perfect.
>>35979750I reckon the color is mostly offensive because of the helmet, but I can dig all of those other things. And yeah, that kind of armor would look best with a sword of sorts due to the attempt at building a regal look for the suit overall. Maybe that'll be our version's innate weapon as opposed to the bow?At least, I think there were one or two Energy Arms with innate weapons as opposed to purely the bow.
>>35979750We're likely to get one of those bows, actually. By the end of the series almost everyone had upgraded to Energy Lockseeds or better in order to keep up with the rising power levels. And the Sonic Arrow is a standard weapon for Energy Lockseeds, they all have it instead of a custom weapon (with one exception, but Matsubokkuri Energy is of dubious canon status) . Don't worry, in practice they actually turn out pretty cool. Fight scenes with them tend to be pretty interesting.
>>35979701That Aarara Snake is too adorable.
>>35979750At least the bows double as bladed weapons, but I agree that they look dumb. Swords superior.
>>35979750It helps to remember that Ryoma is a huge dork. The silly quote that the driver says when we transform? They do that because he thought it would be neat. So Dragon Energy looking all spiky and dumb makes sense. It looks that way because he's trying to be dark and edgy now that he's a cyborg.
>>35979588I was personally thinking something along the lines of Hankouteki("defiance") Arms as our super mode's name. Given that we're likely to be much less accepting of Sagara's bullshit than Kouta would be, that seems like a good equivalent to "Triumphant Arms".[/soiler]
>>35979980Iunno, assuming we go by the idea that all Rider shows take place in the same world, we could probably achieve that same thing with Agito. Humanity's own self-driven evolution.
>>35979588What if we put on of those Determination Arms into a juice drive?
>>35980068You can't. Kachidoki opens downward, Genesis Drivers only work on lockseeds that open from the inside out.

Whoa, this thread has been active since I have been at class. Might at this point benefit for an OOC chat, like on Steam or something. Anyways, reply is being worked on now. ETA is about 15 minutes or less.

Kouta Kazuraba's given a suggestion that Ryoji Hase's been attacked not by the wild INves, but the Green Rider in the Forest. You don't know the likelihood of this, but this has only fueled your desire to destroy the forest and all that reside in it. In your mind, that Rider is no better than the bloody monsters that consume the twisted fruit of the Forest.Kouta's spinning an Orange Lockseed on his finger, which momentarily breaks your focus. Letting your curiosity get the better of you, you don't hesitate to inquire:>MAKOTO: "Uh, where'd you get that Lockseed? You're back in the Beat Rider circles again?">KOUTA: "What, this? Oh yeah, uh, I kinda inherited it, you could say. It helps me with being this team's main Armored Rider - Armored Rider Gaimu!"He does a thumbs up and a smile, but while you can tell it's genuine, it doesn't cheer you up as much as you like. Sure, he's Armored Rider Gaim, and there's another identity to solidify the roster Your primary goal is to ally with Kouta and appeal to him to work together with you on eliminating the threat of the Forest, but you also know he's involved in the fights between teams...>CHOICE[ ] Focus more on the threat to the city[ ] Focus more on fighting back against Baron's Alliance[ ] Focus on a personal appeal to Kouta using Hase[ ] Other (write in the tactic)Verbal accompaniments to the choices are welcomed and encouraged.

>>35981109In the meantime, feel free to continue OOC chatter
>>35981109It's alright. Good luck with that post.I think the chatter slowed down a little due to NaNoWriMo stuff.
>>35981170Are there Rider shows other than Gaim sharing their universes with this one, like in the Gaim movie where the Faiz cast shows up (out of suit, even)?Basically, are we going by "Decade's horseshit merged all the worlds and all new Rider shows take place in that one" as per Rider canon if you include movies, "Neo-Heisei is self-contained compared to pre-Decade but all shares the same world" or "Gaim and nothing else"?
>>35981377I think it's Gaim and nothing else. From Wizard on, Riders only share the same world in crosover movies. Otherwise, they're seperate.
>>35981293The Nintendo Direct probably had something to do with it too. Me posting all of that Duke stuff certainly helped keep the chatter up last time.
>>35981534Yes, but here is my counter argument.Wizard is a pile of shit, putrid trash only fit to wipe my ass with, and directly contradicts earlier established show canon like Double and OOOs sharing a universe at the very least.It was also written by a yes-man who wants nothing more than to emulate Inoue's style, which he considers to be the epitome of Rider, and most likely wrote those final few episodes purely so that they could jam Decade into more crossover movies.Wizzles can suck my dick, it is easily the worst Rider show I've seen.I'll admit I'm a little salty, as I hadn't considered the implications of those god-awful and absolutely terrible few "extended" episodes, but I'm going to assume they're non-canon as they don't tie in to Gaim's TV episodes anyway.
>>35981614Not the TV show, but they're canon to the crossover movie. That's how Haruto recognizes Kouta.
>>35981614The extended episodes is basically Decade and Wizard visits World of Wizard feat. Kamen Rider Gaim.
>>35981725The Sengoku one where all Riders were some faction's ace-in-the-hole knights? Which ends with Micchy acquiring the Blood Orange Lock Seed which we then promptly never see again despite having the power to hop dimensions on demand like it's Decade-in-a-padlock?
>MAKOTO: "So, uh, Armored Rider Gaim. Yeah? Or do you just want to be called Kouta?">KOUTA: "Just Kouta's fine. I ain't got any beef with you anyways, especially if you're coming here with the intention for peace rather than war.">MAKOTO: "Heh, that's good to know. I'm wondering, however, if you'd be interested in collaborating on taking on whoever did this. And, y'know, wouldn't hurt if Gaim and Raid Wild team up in the face of Baron."Mai's now looking to get in the conversation, as the four of you sit down at the lunch counter in the garage.>MAKOTO: "How about a loose alliance? We help you against Baron if there are no other threats and YOU help us when you can.

Getting more practice with the Driver and such would be good, for future fights. And you and I both know that stunt Sid pulled won't last forever."He does have a point, and you both look to Mai and Honda. While Mai's listening intently, Honda's elsewhere... he's on his phone, looking a bit panicked.>HONDA: "Wait, what the fu-- you said who's challening who?! ... alright, hold on."He puts his hand over the mic and looks over to you and Kouta.>HONDA: "Y'all might want to hear about this... apparently there's a new Rider, challenging any and all other Riders to combat.

>>35981878>[X] ACCEPT the challenge, hold off on cementing the alliance>Ask Kouta if he'd be willing to do us a favorAsk him if he's willing to observe the fight as it takes place, scope out any weaknesses or habits in his fighting style. We're the more experienced Rider, so we'd be able to buy more time for him to do the observation.

>>35981813That's why I said canon to the movies. Gaim didn't have the usual cameo in Wizard's summer movie, and filming got delayed on his series, so they did what they could with the unexpected extra time.
>>35982419Actually Gaim started filming late June which fit in with the normal schedule as this image is from back then.
>>35982228You smirk, and you can feel your soul start growing hotter. In the back of your mind, you imagine a chained emerald green dragon, starting to stir and tug at its chains. You, Armored Rider Raid, the Strongest, will not back down for a direct challenge. Especially if someone's dumb enough to challenge you first for a misguided attempt at claiming power.>MAKOTO: "I'll be right there. Hoi hoi, Kouta-san, you wanna watch? Get some experience an' all?"Kouta is hesitant, but your grin borders on highly gleeful at the concept of another fight. You can see a grin forming, before you put a fist out to him. >MAKOTO: "If ya want, we can fight together, yeah?">KOUTA: "...yosha! Let's see what this new rider's got under his sleeve!"------------------------------->SCENE CHANGE: RIVER UNDERPASS-------------------------------This river underpass is on the edge of the city, under one of the many bridges that leads into Zawame proper. Typically, if someone wanted to settle a dispute, and dancing didn't cut it, the actual fights were carried out here - away from the sight of the Yggdrasil Tower, away from most of the world, and private.When you and Kouta drive up, you're surprised to see that there's a crowd already there. The sounds of metal clashing on metal already denote a fight - and as you could guess, Baron's whaling away at another Rider. This one's in green, silver and instead of the rider in the Forest, is covered in spikes and sporting a big red helmet plume. Was this the new Rider? You could only assume as such, given that the four you knew of didn't match this description.

He'd probably take it as a stab to his pride if we helped at all, really.
>>35983059Kaito takes everything as a stab to his pride. Personally, I think he's overcompensating for his regret over thinking that managing a men's dance troupe was the path to power. He's just kicking himself now.
>>35982914>>35983058You push your way to the edge of the crowd with Kouta, Drivers in close proximity but not equipped yet. Kouta looks confused, however...>KOUTA: "I...is Baron winning?"As you watch the fight go on, Kouta seems to be right - Baron's seemed to actually learn how to wield a spear the right way, and is keeping the new Rider away from him enough to not put himself in so much danger. You can't help but feel a little proud, and stupid, that Kaito's gotten at least a couple brain cells together to figure out proper weapon usage.>MAKOTO: "Kaito, you... Kaito, you figured it out... shiiiiit."Kaito does indeed look over at you and Kouta as you speak out, looking clearly startled. This is the chance the new Rider takes, as with a combo of blows with his nasty looking swords, he rains pain upon Baron's back. You could swear that the posture and movement style of this new rider is somewhat familiar, further cemented by his voice, but... it can't be...>???: "Didn't anyone ever teach you that the first thing to learn about fighting is not. To put. Your back. To the enemy?"Baron stumbles towards you, before returning his gaze to the green and purple rider. >BARON/KAITO: "It was a momentary distraction. I guarantee, you're in for a world of despair and pain."He refocuses on the enemy in front of him, and you're left to wonder if it was worth joining in. Only before-->???'s DRIVER: "DURIAN SQUASH--!"A glowing green ball of translucent energy is formed between the new Rider's swords, batted directly at Kaito, and without a proper guard, knocks him directly into the river behind the crowd.

The Rider armor dissipates, indeed leaving behind a certain Oren Pierre Alfonzo.>OREN: "Makoto-chan?">MAKOTO: "Heh. What's goin' on, man? So, ah, your belt.

>>35985488So "My roar of anger shakes the heavens/galaxy/[whatever seems appropriate]!" Armored Rider Raid!" work for everyone?
>>35985454Drop the last part and it sounds perfect.
>>35985556Oh, I like "shakes the heavens". Sounds better than "galaxy". But yes, that sounds great.
>>35985556Now it's perfect.
>>35985556Hell yeah.let's get this going.

>>35985616>MAKOTO: <HENSHIN!>>MAKOTO'S DRIVER: "RINGO ARMS! AXE OF FIGHTER!"You summon the Apple Arms from the portal once more, drop it on yourself, and the transformation begins. But as you feel the armor start to assemble on you, you continue talking.>MAKOTO: "My roar of anger shakes the heavens! Armored Rider RAID!"The armor unfolds to reveal your helmet and fully covered form, summoning the Axe to your right hand, and resting the pommel against the ground. You growl as menacingly as you can, drawing yourself to a stance to which you can swing with as much force as you can muster, and you finish your dramatic entrance with...>MAKOTO: "Time to bare my fangs!">???: "HOLD IT!"Oh God fucking dammit. Your fight boner was throbbing and ready to go. You can even see in your mind's eye, the emerald Dragon in your mind roaring "NOOOOOOOOOOO" as it's forcibly calmed.The French girl from the Yggdrasil Corporation, the one with the briefcase, has gotten out of the SUV and is walking towards the both of you. Both you and Oren share a look of "really, bitch?" as she approaches, opening her briefcase and withdrawing......is that a Suika Lockseed? That one wasn't even supposed to be out yet!>???: "I am here to issue challenge."Her Japanese is somewhat rusty, but Oren speaks up in French before you have a chance to respond. She gives him a bemused, but silencing look.>???: "If choose to accept, will bestow upon the winner this Lockseed.">RESPONSE?[ ] REFUSE the offer, opting to begin your fight against Oren[ ] INQUIRE about the offer.[ ] OTHER (Write in)

>>35985940>Especially if this means we will get to fight this Dragon in our mind, resulting in a massive increase in power because we mastered our instinct and our animalistic nature.NO. That reminds me too much of Wizard. We will not repeat the mistakes of that series.
>>35985973But that is an old and recognizeable trope, anon.Just because Wizard couldn't use it properly doesn't mean DJ Sagara can't make it work.Have Faith in our GM, anon, for he is Wiser than any of us.
>>35985791I like the term 'battle boner' too much. Inquire to figure out what this offer is exactly.

>>35986096>As to whether or not that Dragon's going to play a part, well.>Find out in game.Oh, you better believe I am interested in whether that dragon is important or not.He doesn't even need to be magical or anything, just our subconscious battle-lust and our warrior nature given shape by our mind, and us defeating it and making its power our own would be a very Jungian metaphor, analogous to us learning to restrain our bloodlust and learning just how much we can trust in our instincts.That's the kind of thing so manybshows try to do and fail, because it's not really "lol I killed that dragon in mah soul now I'm stronger" but "I learmed thatbthere is a beast inside of me, one I must control lest I hurt others and myself in pointless pursuits".
>>35986209>So many typosNote to self, never post from my phone while drunk.
>>35986096You sigh, turning to the girl slightly and lowering your weapon. Out of the corner of your visor, you can see Oren lowering his as well. At least there won't be any risk of a backstab for now. You make sure to move back a bit to ensure he's in your cone of vision, and say: >MAKOTO: "You couldn't have brought this up BEFORE we transformed? Interrupting like this is impolite. Sid did the same thing, I'm starting to think that dramatic timing isn't one of the skills they look for when they hire you Lock Dealers. But okay, fine, I'm listening."The woman just giggles and smirks. And opens the Lockseed.>LOCKSEED: "SUIKA"The biggest Inves Portal you've seen so far opens behind her, and without even bothering to deal with the holographic ring that had been summoned around you and her, a hulking Monstrosity of an Inves makes its way out. It looks as big as the Berserker Inves that you had run from, except this one's got more than enough hardened surfaces on its exterior. >???: "If you must know, I am Cecile duMont, Naruya-sama's loyal assistant. I am not a mere Lock Dealer, and if you compare me to those /pigs/ again, I shall not hesitate to come back and show no mercy."Cecile then walks back towards the crowd, starting to try to back the crowd back away from the fight. Seems you two are going to have to face off against this hulk of a beast...!>CHOICE[ ] GO LOW and tell Oren to go high![ ] GO HIGH and tell Oren to go low![ ] COMBINE TACTICS and go at the same time![ ] Other (write in)

>>35986556So... going mobile tonight means leaving campus and going to my house. We're back on computer.
>>35986455It looks like this.
>>35986556Tune: RULES OF NATUREA rush of ideas, concepts and images rush through your head faster than you could utter a word. Images of you, Oren, and Kouta hauling off against the Inves in many different ways flash, befoer one major one settles to sticking in your mind's eye. Oren goes high at the creature's face, you swing at its legs and arms, and Kouta draws its aggression away from the crowd, Oren and you.You turn to scream at the crowd to RUN!, but Kouta's one of the few still remaining. You don't even have to give him your signal, for he's already strapped his Driver to his belt and pulling out his Orange Lockseed.>O. LOCKSEED: "ORENJI!>KOUTA: <HENSHIN!>>KOUTA'S DRIVER: "ORENJI ARMS! HANAMICHI ON STAGE!"Without missing a beat, another portal appears over Kouta, drops an orange-colored ball of Armor on his head, and it unfolds to reveal a helmet with a half-moon shaped crest on it. Blue and orange, it seems to be fairly standard armor, and the sword - shaped like a slice of orange - also seems to be fairly run-of-the-mill. If you didn't know any better, you'd say he could be a protagonist in his own right, with how many tropes he evoked.Regardless, you shout to him and Oren:>MAKOTO: "Kouta, pour as much lead into it as you can! Oren, go for the head and upper body, I'll do my best to bring it down from the knees!">OREN, KOUTA: "Got it!">Roll 1d20, y'all, best of 5

>>35987722Tite Kubo, mostly because of Bleach Quest where there were so, so many ones.
>>35987722Nice dub dubs.Kubo is the mangaka that wrote Bleach, and is known for the copious amounts of twists and asspulling he does. Only it turns out he foreshadowed one of the biggest twists from the very start, and even outright stated it only we didn't believe him.In Bleach Quest we went full Kubo difficulty, and the quest started off with so many critfails we skipped most of the manga's plot.

>>35987934It was hilarious what with all the crits. Writing wasn't bad either and it was amazing to be in while it was running. A shame it died.
>>35987934The three of you spring into action, but given you're not used to working together, the teamwork's a little clumsy. Oren tries scrambling for hits on the Inves' head and shoulders, only to find that most of the hits are landing to little success. Kouta's firing as best as he can towards the creature, some shots managing to lodge themselves in the flesh of the Inves and draw its aggro away from you...You slide a little bit on your knees, swinging your axe as best as you can. Three of the swings don't catch well on the creature's legs, but you think quick and use the momentum from the bouncing of your weapon off of the hard carapace to hack at the inside bend of the knee. This one lodges deeply into its hamstrings, making it cry out in pain and distracting it from the other Riders attacking its front. Oren manages to get a few good slashes at its eyes and shoulders, and Kouta seems to be able to defend himself against the wild slashes and swipes that the monster is making. And so far, the fight has taken a turn for you... >CHOICE:[ ] Let OREN take point[ ] Let KOUTA take point[ ] CONTINUE to lead the charge[ ] OTHER (write in)
>>35988172>[X] CONTINUE to lead the chargeWe've been talking big so we can't hesitate now.
>>35988172Oren is a better fighter than either us or Kouta right now. While he handles the front, we can aim for joints and knees with Kouta and hinder the thing for a three on one finisher.

While DJ is writing, here is a concept sketch for Erina based on what people suggested earlier and what I thought fit the character. What do you all think?
>>35988559Looks great. Ara ara-capable without going overboard. I like it.
>>35988559That wink. That cup. Looks spot on.
>>35988559Echoing what others have said: Looks pretty spot on.
>>35988417>MAKOTO: "We need to disable it if we have any hope of beating this fucker down!">KOUTA: "I'm on it!"Miraculously, his sword and saber connect at the hilts, forming some kind of double-ended weapon that quite frankly, looks WAY too impractical to be really considered for lon-- oh wait, was he spinning the weapon like a badass? Huh. He kinda was lookin' pretty well off for himself. If you had to fight him later, chances are you'd be facing off against a challenging opponent. Before you can feel the heat coming off of the Inves spike dramatically, like you were directly laying on hot coals. Even with the protection from the Armored Rider's suit, you and Oren jump off of the Inves, as you see its carapace start to glow with internal heat. Large parts of the chitinous shell start to fall off and reveal ... is that exposed muscle tissue? Fucking really?! You can't help but recoil a bit as you consider that these Inves do share some similarities with actual earth creatures. But that thought goes out the window as the final pieces of the carapace fall off, molten hot and distorting the air around it. Clouds of steam are coming off of the monster now, and while its mass has shrunk sizeably due to the carapace taking up most of its mass, it's still clearly a formidable size.The fact that it dashes into the water doesn't help either. The entire riverbank is quickly filled with steam from the river and the Inves... now was the time to think.>CHOICE[ ] Use Kouta and Oren to fire energy into the river to flush out the monster[ ] Wade into the river yourself to fight the monster[ ] Think of other tactics (write in and discuss)
>>35988941Well, I'm sure that we shouldn't rush in and fight it. We aren't Monster Huntering our way out of anything that I can see.I can't think of anything beyond using our new found allies to chase the thing out of water.
>>35988941>[X] Wade into the river yourself to fight the monster"No time to think!"
>>35988941>[X] Think of other tactics (write in and discuss)Swap to Dragonfruit, charge up a Sparking, and throw it in. Our finishers in that form tend to involve fire, let's keep it from cooling down.
>>35988996>>35988998>>35989031I don't mean to cut this short, guys, but seeing as both Lori and I have to get up early tomorrow, would it be okay if we paused here and continued this next week? Using the same choices here.
>>35989142I mean, I'd rather not, but you do you, DJ.
>>35989142Sure thing. Night, Sagara. Thanks for running.
>>35989186>>35989164Thanks for being understanding guys, I appreciate it. I'm going to hold off on a preview for next episode, in the interest of planning and suspense, but if you'd like to ask either Lori (one of our resident drawfags) or I a question regarding the game so far, the world or anything while the threads aren't running, the best way to contact us is either via Twitter:>@DJ_Sagara_TG (QM)>@DJ_Glory_TG (Artfag)We'll try to get back to you asap, and we're more than willing to chat up about rider related things.In the meantime, good night everyone!
