Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.But damn, its fun.You are Zachary Zelnacki, newly formed Epic. Two months ago, super-powered people rose from the wea-I mean normal. Yeah, normal. You have the ability to control vectors, allowing you to change the speed and direction of any solid object within 15 yards(13 meters). You are also inhumanly tough, able to shrug off small caliber weapons. Finally, and perhaps most important, you are able to absorb powers from dead Epics, if you touch them within ten minutes of death.You witnessed an Epic fight in the local Middle school, and absorbed the power of steel manipulation and regeneration. You then uploaded the video of the battle and bought a Glock. Finally, you check around town for anything of interest. You see a poster about an Epic in Sacramento, read about a trio of Epics that took over New York City, and learned about LA.You went on the road, driving to New York. In Colorado, a blockade forces you to pull over. After killing two men, the militia is able to handcuff you. Put into a large execution machine, open to the public. Who were there in large numbers, unluckily for them. Fearing for your your life, your powers fly out of control. Forming a metal shell around yourself, a rampage ensues. Nearly 20% of the town's population later, you reach your car. You fall into a fitful sleep, full of flashing lights, pleas for mercy, spraying blood, and a feeling of overpowering strength.1/?
You wake up, groggy and feeling hungover from the overuse of your powers. All the joys of being hungover, none of the fun of being drunk. Epics, everybody. Still, the pure power that surged through you last night, was intoxicating. Exhilarating. Enchanting. Addictive. Now, what to do...>Loot the town(what are you looking for?

Loot the town. been writing, almost done
We should keep se steal on us at all times
>LootYou climb from the car, stretching out after a night of killing and sleeping in a cramped car. A trail of solidified metal leads to your car, small pieces and droplets that fell from your armor as you run from the town. Looks like a giant, metal snail crawled by, leaving a trail of steel slime. Following the slime trail, you stride into the town. The town, decorated with festering corpses, has taken on a still air. Any people that might still be in the town disappear as you move, flashes of bloodstained people running through alleys the only sign of humanity. Crows, vultures, and ravens gather in the air and on the roofs, lining up for their buffet. Already, the bodies have been attacked by wild animals, with torn flesh and strips of meat hanging from them. Did you really cause this?You walk up a small slope, the townspeople flitting away. You wander through the streets, staying away from your killing field. As you walk, the houses slowly grow larger and more ornate. Most houses are the stereotypical suburb, white picket fences encircling perfectly mown grass. The wealthier are larger, with small brick fences and black wrought iron gates. Kicking down one of the fences, you walk into the manicured front lawn of the wealthy. A large RV is sitting in the driveway, freshly waxed. Green moss grows between the cobblestones in the driveway, accenting the grey stone and vehicle. You open the doors, using a small bit of force and vectoring a rock into the doors. They swing open, shrieking as the thin deadbolt snaps in half. 1/2
The house seems deserted, completely silent excluding a faint hum of electricity. Someone left the lights on when they left. Don't they know about global warming? You wander on the hardwood floors, looking for anything of value. A large, marble topped kitchen counter provides a breakfast of oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins, a grapefruit, and a glass of chocolate milk. Just like mom used to make, before she and dad fell into the ocean with the rest of Miami. You walk back to a stairway, then climb the steps to the second floor. A green carpet covers the floor, fluffy and clean. Opening the doors one at a time, you clear the house. The master bedroom holds little, excluding an envelope full of cash and a jewelry box with gold chains. You shove both objects into a plastic garbage bag. The master closet proves fruitless, as the husband is short, judging by his suits. In a kid's room, which is covered with a fine layer of dust, some PS4 games enter the sack. You open a door, another kid's room judging from the name in bright paint on the door. Brandon. Wasn't there a guy named Brandon in highschool? No, it was Brendan. Close anyway.Inside the room, is a small boy. He's laying in bed, holding a laptop. He looks up as you open the door, looking your straight in the eyes. Funny, he isn't scared. Funnier, the laptop he's on doesn't have a battery in it."Hi">What say?
>>36331078Back the fuck off??!
>>36331078Hi. Take it you're an epic?
>>36331078Ask him what he is doing
"Hi. I take it you're an Epic?" You ask, walking into the room. You sit down on the side of the boy's bed.The boy's eyes widen, then he looks down at his hands. A spark jumps between his index and pointer fingers, colored blueish white. He shakes his head, tightlipped."Its okay if you are. No one here will hurt you if you are an Epic." you say, speaking softly so as not to freak him out."My babysitter was one. He isn't here anymore. I didn't tell Mom incase they got scared."Okay, that was smart of you. So, what were you doing when I came in?"The boy lifts up his computer, keeping a finger against the place where the battery should be. On screen, is an online game. Poptropica, is what the address says."Mom and Dad didn't come home yesterday. I thought they found out, but the cars are still here.">What say?
>>36331472The town is a mess kid. From what i gathered there was an epic that got brought in to be executed and he didn't go quietly. Lot of destruction in the square. Wouldn't hold out much hope for them. Sorry kid.
>>36330052Would you mind putting "quest" somewhere in your OP title? Filters keep /tg/ a friendly place.
>>36331570I though I did. Sorry if I messed it up
>>36331472There dead Jim. But if you come with me you'll be safe. Tell me, how much power can you make?
>>36331472Kill him and take his power
>>36331668No killing until we get a full catalog of what he can do, then maybe if we can get him to drop his best power for us. In the meantime trying to talk to him really only benefits us.
"The town is a mess kid. From what i gathered there was an epic that got brought in to be executed and he didn't go quietly. Lot of destruction in the square. Wouldn't hold out much hope for them. Sorry kid.""Why'd they have to bring the Epic in?""I don't know kid. I'm Zach. What's your name?"Brandon. So what do I do if he hurt my parents?">What say>You can come with me" gain Brandon as a party member >Beats me>You can kill everyone in town>We can dance if we want to>We can leave your dead parents behind>Cause if your parents are dead and if they are dead>Well, they're no parents of mine>Write In

>>36331879You can come with me kid, i'm an epic too. I'm heading to New York city. Chances are if that Epic is still alive that's where he heading as well. Lot of epics are heading that way or so i here. Just let me get my stuff over here and i can drive us using that RV.
You got a link to the archives? Had to leave midway through the first thread.
"You can come with me kid, i'm an epic too. I'm heading to New York city. Chances are if that Epic is still alive that's where he heading as well. Lot of epics are heading that way or so I hear. Just let me get my stuff over here and i can drive us using that RV.""Okay. Let me get my sleeping bag." The boy hops off the bed, leaving the laptop to go black without a power source. The blond boy opens a white wooden door, then reaches into the closet. He pulls out a large bag, olive green with a thin black sleeping bag and roll hanging against the bottom. He slips the pack on, buckling down straps and basically acting like he's done this a thousand times."Brandon, where did you get that bag?""Dad made it for me. Everyone has one. Mom's and Dad's are in their room.""Okay then. Give me a moment to grab those. You go downstairs and pile all the food on the kitchen counter.""Can I bring Mike and Shelby?""Um, yeah. Sure, get Mike and Shelby."The boy smiles, then runs out of the room. As you head into the master bedroom, you glimpse Brandon carrying two terrariums. You open the closet, which you ignored after seeing the size of the clothing. A closer inspection reveals a false wall on hidden hinges. Slipping a clothes hanger into the crack, you open the hidden compartment. Inside, are a pair of large bags and a pair of ARX160s. You sling both bags onto your wide shoulders, then hang the rifles by their slings on your neck. A pistol fits in a holster on the backpack's hip straps, cold and heavy against your leg.Leaving the bedroom, you struggle down the stairs. You grab three sets of keys from a key tree, one of them must be to the RV. You click the unlock buttons on all three remotes, the second causing the RV's lights to flash. You open the door, then climb the steps into the mobile home. You set the backpacks and rifles down, leaning against a couch.
Looking you, you are confronted with a prepper's wet dream. Plush couches and a bed are visible as you stare down the vehicle, with what looks like reenforced steel shutters on the windows and a gun rack near the front. A full size fridge sits on it's side, modified to serve as a bench and table. Sleek golden wood trim and cabinets give the vehicle a homey feel, offsetting the rack of loaded rifles and shotguns. Lifting up the cushions on a couch reveals blocks of ammo crates and MREs. One cushion hides a reloading station, complete with powder and brass. Another couch has a large water purification set up, likely using the engine's to purify water. All this and more is in the RV, your wonder broken by a small blond boy bumping into you. "Sorry Zach." Brandon says, maneuvering around you with a load of food in his arms. He sets it in a couch storage hole, then covers the food with the couch cushion. You follow him out of the RV, ferrying food into it from the house. With all of the food packed up, and a few things Brandon days are important(including his laptop and his pets, Mike the scorpion and Shelby the snake), you start up the engine. It purrs in satisfaction, then you pull out of the drive way.>Pick up anything else in the town, or just get going to NYC?
>>36332614We still have our stuff right? If so head to NYC no point sticking around here.
>>36332709Yeah, you'll hook up your smartcar to the RV, which has a hitch for this
>>36332736Then head on out talk to the kid, about games about how long he's had his powers and other assorted small talk. ALso try to keep the window shut til he's out of town. No need to freak him out, he could trash this thing with a surge.
>>36331879>dead parent danceTop kek.>>36332614On to NYC
>>36330052Why didn't you put "quest" in the subject field, shitlord.
>>36332614>Pick up anything else in the town, or just get going to NYC?look for the bank ask the kid whats in town if there is anything interesting.
>not just killing the kid and taking his powers>still trying to be good alignmentIt's like you retards never learn
>>36333017Because catering to people who live in a state of perpetual denial is pointless.
You pull through the town, the steel blinds shut so "the evil Epic can't get in". Brandon climbs into a bed above the driver's seat, which you later find out doubles as a machine gun nest complete with a hatch that has a 240 degree arc from which a machine gun can fire. You lock the nest's hatch. As you weave through the streets, you talk with Brandon."So, what kind of games do you like?""Pokemon and Poptropica.""How long have you have been an Epic?"Three months. I shocked a bully at school, but he said I punched him. Mom took away my 3DS for a week after that.""Thats too bad. What powers do you have?"I can shock stuff, power my laptop, and make some weird blue armor things. What about you?""I don't get hurt as easily, and can make things go fast. What's your team in Pokemon?"Brandon talks a lot on the subject of pokemon, from the time you hitch up your car, to the next state over. The two of you listen to a book over the speakers, about a kid whose dad is a Greek god. It also turns out that Brandon is eight. If you'd guessed, you would have said ten or eleven and on 'roids. Three monthes ago, he went through a large growth spurt much like you.1/2
You pass the time listening to the news, audio books, and talking with Brandon. Apparently, Snowblower(the Epic in Sacramento) changed his name to Snowfall and has been spreading out from the city. A few Epics are battling it out up in Portland for control of the nation's supply of hipsters. You spend five days on the road, eating in diners or making something in the RV's kitchen. Brandon seems to appreciate your cooking, eating a large amount each meal. With a large number of detours to avoid cities, your trip takes longer than normal. When you do pull over(not often, the RV is surprisingly fuel efficient), you stop in small gas stations in the middle of nowhere.A mandatory detour takes you into the south, skirting around a High Epic's kingdom. You have to follow a highway to Nashville, many of the exit ramps destroyed or barricaded. Reaching the city limits, a long line of 18 wheelers and cars are waiting to get into the city.>What do?>Stay in line>Back up, look for a way around Nashville(will take days of backtracking and you might loose a chance at loot)>Blow up the cars in front of you, nothing blocks an Epic's way>Write in
>>36333499Check the radio first, see if it has anything useful. If it is an experienced epic we really don't stand much chance unless we have surprise on our side.
>>36333499>>Stay in linethis RV gotta have a CB radio jump on see whats going on up ahead
>>36333499>>36333618Here also tell the kid to keep his powers off for now, might draw an epic in if there are causing this.
>>36333499>>Blow up the cars in front of you, nothing blocks an Epic's waytired of this
>>36333499>>Blow up the cars in front of you, nothing blocks an Epic's way
>>36333071A high epic wants lesser epics serving them. We are not being good for goodness sake, we are just gaining power.
Epic? Is this the Steelheart universe?
>>36334086Yes we're an epic with invulnerability vector control and power stealing, sadly we're still new at this so we'll get trounced if we go toe to toe against most others.
You flip on the radio, which Brandon informs you has a mic and on button on the steering wheel so you can talk without taking hands off the wheel. Thats what the green button on the right is for. All this time you thought it was for radar or something. You press the on button, and are greeted by a loud voice."YOU ARE ENTERING THE REALM OF THE KLAN, OWNERS OF NASHVILLE AND THE SURROUNDING LANDS. THOSE PASSING THROUGH, MOVE TO THE LEFT. RESIDENCE AND CARGO VEHICLES, TO THE RIGHT."You signal, then switch lanes to the left. An hour passes, time spent listening to the CB radio. Brandon translates the trucker-speak, easily talking with them. While he does, he tries to sound grown up. He only succeeds in sounding like he's constipated. However, the truckers either don't notice or ignore his voice acting. They say that The Klan is demanding a part of their cargo as tribute for passing through. They also makes random inspections of cars, sending in a team of an Epic or two with normies armed with guns.You crawl along, reminiscing on your trip down to Mexico. The line is much like the one on the border, taking random cars out for inspection. You reach the toll booth, a tin roofed ramshackle building on the road. A bored teenagers mans it, an ARX160 leaning against the wall like it's owner. He holds a clipboard, reading a script while only occasionally looking up at you."Hello, welcome to the city of Nashville. Please list your purpose in our city, name, any weaponry you are carrying, the race of any passengers and any valuables. If you are an Epic or transporting one, please notify your attendant slash attendants. Please pull your vehicle to the side of the road into spot... fifteen." The boy waves you through, and you slowly drive to the fifteenth spot. Another bored, armed person is waiting with a sheaf of paper and a clipboard."Hello sir, please list the items my companion explained to you.>What say?
>>36334183Zachary Zelnakis an my little brother Brandon, we're passing through to New York to meet family since that guy in Sacramento killed our folks. We've got (name the easily found weapons) cause with all the trouble around here we might very well need it. WE are of course both white.
>>36334183State the weapons we have and say that Brandon is an epic but we arent
Are there super-intelligent Epics?Since we're never going to be able to use our vector manipulation to it's full potential without a supercomputer brain.
>>36334416Probably, we can kill one and steal their powers later. They won't be in the front lines more likely than not.
>>36334416>Since we're never going to be able to use our vector manipulation to it's full potential without a supercomputer brain.Why not?
>>36334441Math.So much math. That has to be done in milliseconds.>>36334135Announce our guns, and that we are both epics.
>>36334441Do you know how fucking smart this guy is?
>>36334487Last time we announced we were epics we got attacked, so we'll either get jumped or drafted this time. Also keeping the not obvious weapons without them knowing is for the best, they might want to nab one or two.
>>36334079>kill the kid's parents>really obviously lie about>surely this will never come back to haunt meWhen the kid inevitably betrays you and you're screaming railroad, I will be feasting on your sweet, sweet tears.
>>36334487Why do we need math? Sorry for missing something so obvious, but I cant make the connection why we need math.>>36334522>Do you know how fucking smart this guy is?Nope, don't even know who he is.
>>36334522And? Zachary is a ex-fitness trainer. I doubt he can add three digit numbers.
>Obvious weapons>Back story>Epic? Y/N
>>36334613>Obvious weapons>Back story>Epic?NIf they pull out the scanner thing quickly and embarrassingly change our story to that our folks were protecting us while he killed them the big mean N-word.
>>36334587The vector manipulation power (which has gotten real popular in the last few years) got so popular because of pic related, Accelerator. It's his main power.He's used it to do such bullshit things as >Set up an automatic reflection shield that can immediately tell if something is harmful or not, even light, even if Accelerator can't sense it.>Analyze and reset a human brain to it's state as it was a week before by changing every individual electrical signal>Create plasma by forcibly compressing massive amounts of air>Steal 5 minutes of the earth's rotational energy and use it as an attack>Model and create whole new laws of physics to control energies and matter that don't actually exist>Make people explode by reversing the direction of their blood and electrical signals>Block out annoying musicIt's still a good power without math, it just reaches psychotic levels of power if you've got a supercomputer for a brain.
>>36334753Since we can level it using exp i figure its us getting smarter as well as better at using it.
>>36334753Most those things sound like they can be done without maths, so I doubt we are jacked that much.
>>36334790It has no relation whatsoever to intelligence.
I'm Zachary Zelnakis and my little brother Brandon is in the back, we're passing through to New York to meet family since that guy in Sacramento killed our folks. We've got a couple deer rifles, ARX160s, and an assortment of shotguns and pistols cause with all the trouble around here we might very well need it. WE are of course both white."Okay, if you'll open up for me. Sorry about your folks, darn nigger Epics. As if the Jews didn't already give them enough, they gotta go out and kill respectable white people. Day of the rope's coming, friend." The man climbs into your RV, whistling at it's interior. You show him a few of guns, loaded into the rack near the door. He doesn't notice the subtle modifications Brandon's dad made. He looks in the bathroom, checking for any contraband. Brandon waves to him from the man, looking down from his loft bed.The man mumbles under his breath, "kid must eat his beef, fucking jacked." He checks off a few boxes on the clipboard, then shakes your hand. "Have a good day sir. I would suggest the Country Music Hall of Fame if your little brother is getting bored in here."The man exits, then closes up your RV. He waves you through the gate, into the city center. You enter the stream of cars, merging into the herd.>Head on through>Check out the hall of fame>Look around town for a hotel>Write in
>>36335096If you can level up super nt with exp then leveling vector and getting a small int boost as a fringe benefit isn't too far out there, we'll see how Calamity calls it.

>>36335131Did he graduate from Racist Camp? Jesus.>Head on through
>>36335135Epics are the peak of humanity. Taller, better looking, faster, stronger, smarter. You are able to understand vector control fairly well, but it gets better as you level it up

>>36335131>>Head on through
>>36335266While I don't support the kkk in any way, I've always thought that their naming comventions are pretty fucking boss.
You fall in with the great stream of cars, Brandon going back to the loft with his laptop. You drive past a few skyscrapers, all flying the Confederate flag and what you assume is the KKK flag. It takes quite a while, before traffic thins out. By now, you're three fourths of the way through the city."Dang it, laptop died. Gotta restart the mission"Wait.No.Stop.Seriously Brandon, that is not a good idea."Brandon! don't use your po... Shit."You speed up, slipping into the carpool lane. Let them give you a ticket, it doesn't matter. You floor it, cars in front of your RV careening into other lanes."Hey Zach! Theres some Epics behind us!" Brandon says, looking through the back window.Fucking balls.>What Do?>Faster!>Man the Machine guns>Climb on top of the RV>Random Button Pushing>Write in

>>36336076To kill him we'd activate our powers and still get chased. He isn't defenseless either. Better to be 2 on however many than one on however many.
For those wanting to kill Brandon, how do you plan to do?Keep in mind his last power used is to charge and power electronics

>You guys can kill Brandon later if you want, after the battle"Brandon, did your dad ever show you how to use one of the machine guns in the gun nest?" You ask, pushing the RV to it's max. Brandon looks at you, wearing a look of disappointment in you. He climbs into the nest, flipping a switch in the side. A cabinet opens, revealing a large gun with two boxes of ammo.Brandon slides the hatch open, two metal doors sliding into the ceiling. He thunks the gun into a stand, that flipped up when the hatch opened. He starts shooting, gunning at the Epics. You poke a button on the dash, and one of the screens light up. A motion sensitive camera is mounted on the front of the RV, swiveled around to follow the moving Epics.Two are flying through different means, one with organic wings and the other using some sort of invisible force. Another is hopping between buildings, soaring after each bound. Bright streaks of light are being launched at the flying Epics, tracers from Brandon's gun. They cut between the flying Epics, going first to the winged one, then to the other.Bloody holes are cut into the winged Epic, the woman's bat-like wings cut into swiss cheese. A trail of red blood falls to earth, marking the woman's passage. A lucky shot goes into her torso, followed by three more rounds. She slips to the side, wings spilling air. As she plummets, she strikes the jumper. The two of them fly off course, crashing into a building. The jumper leaps out of the office building, covered in blood but seemingly fine.>What do>Same options as last post
>>36336460Choo ChooI dunno, qm, you tell us.
>>36336460Use vectors to in crease the speed of the car and have Brandon keep firing
>>36336460Keep going have Brandon fire to persuade the other to leave us alone. Tell Brandon also "Kid pick your fights better, we're tough but a city with a full military and epic support is tougher.">>36336483Killing Brandon mid combat is stupid and you know it. Even if we could vector him and kill him without crashing they'd be on us before we can grab his powers. If you want to kill him once we're away you can.
>>36336621Oh, it's retard anon. No wonder we're dragging around baggage in the form of an actively harmful child.

Yo, QM in the time between the last thread and this one I re read the book 2 times. (I don't have a life). Epics should not be able to tell other epics are there from one using there powers. You can still do this but is should be rare
>>36337050He had Epic sense in char gen, so we knew it was a thing. They apparently have a super team together so odds are one of them had it a used it to track us.
>>36337050There also isn't a power-stealer in the books. Most of this is houserules and non-canon

You push the RV to it's limits, breaking 120 mph. You try to vector the vehicle, boosting it to 170 mph. Your camera view has been obscured by a clear wall of blue that forms a dome around Brandon. He keeps firing at the Epics, the tracer rounds streaking into the blue sky. However, the remaining flyer seems to be repelling the bullets and Jumper is going faster than Brandon can track."Kid pick your fights better, we're tough but a city with a full military and epic support is tougher." You say, shouting over the wind and booms echoing into the RV from the M240. The blond child ignores you, or is deafened by the high caliber weapon next to his head.He keeps firing, until his box of ammo runs dry. The two Epics close in while he changes it out with a fresh one, getting within ten yards of the RV's back end. By now, you've reached the end of the city's skyscrapers. The Jumper launches from the last one, straight at your gunner. You push him back with a vector, relying on the camera to aim.You miss slightly, hitting only half his body. Still, this spins him around like a top, and he falls to a skidding halt on the ground. The tarmac tears up around him, digging him a deep hole in the road.The black rubble shivers, as the Epic stands and brushes himself off. A few pieces of stone and asphalt are stuck in his skin, but are removed with a swipe of his hands. The scrapes remain, proving that he is a regenerative Epic. Must be durable like you. The hulking Epic is lit up by Brandon, heavy rounds slamming into his skin. Most seem to penetrate, but don't go deep enough to do much damage. You pass out of the city, into grassland, with a scattering of trees. The flying Epic is struggling to keep up, moving at most 70 mph. The jumper, however, is able to keep close to you. With the road narrowing and starting to be curvy, you will have to slow down unless you want to crash the RV.>What do?>Write In
>>36337113Isn't there an underground market for epic cells for to recerch in to new tec?
>>36337289Well we either need to stop and get out and fight or have the kid take the wheel while we zone them with vectoring and our metal bent rifle. either is good for me.
>>36337354Yes, but you lack knowledge of it and the expertise on the harvesting of cells. Might throw in a quest for someone where you can learn about it
>>36337289Have Brandon fire into the big heavy epic's head, and boost the velocity of the rounds

>>36337574It's a plan made up by retard anon. Of course you should do it.
>>36337574Are any part if the bullets made if steel? Like the casing or something?
>>36337574N jsut have a gun on your side.

"Shoot his head!"You keep driving, slowing down to handle the curves in the road. You stop accelerating the RV, and ease of a bit on the gas. Still, going around turns at eighty in a RV isn't the easiest thing in the world.The flying Epic is still lagging behind, but has appeared in your camera again. The jumper is bounding along with you, now able to gain ground and pass you. He lands a football field away, standing in the middle of the road.Brandon swivels around in his nest, facing into the wind. A windshield protects him, a small hole for the barrel to pass through. He fires off as many rounds as possible, perhaps a hundred ripping into the man and the surrounding road. A pothole sends you swerving, messing with Brandon's aim.A bullet rips into the man's neck, tearing a hole out of the muscle. He grits his teeth and stays in place. Another round hits him in the side of the face. It carves a line down his face, exposing two shattered teeth. You almost slam into him, but send force into his side to send him to the curb.It doesn't work.He stumbles, feeling the force hit him.But it only sends him to the side five feet.He slides to the side, then hits the side of your RV. You feel metal being torn away, storage compartments dropping packaged food. The tear in your vehicle's side goes about a third of the way down, marking where he careened to the curb.He stands, smiling, with metal stuck in his body. Another round hits him, in the leg this time. The bullet stops dead when it hits his skin.>What Do?>Stop the car, settle this mano a mano>Keep driving>Random button pushing(1d10, first post)>Write in

Rolled 2You randomly start pressing buttons, the first one you hit being a large yellow one with a lightning bolt on it.Nothing happens that you can see. However, it must have done something, as a counter on the dashboard is slowly going down. It was at 100%, now at 98% in just a minute or so.The jumper leaps into the air, coming down next to your RV. He jumps again, landing with a *thump* at the back of the RV. Then come a series of *zztz*s, rapid *thump*s, and a shuddering scream. The man is stuck on the roof, an electric current going through his body.Brandon swivels his pintle mount, facing the large Epic. However, the bumpy road and speed stops him from firing. A single shot gets through to the shaking man, hitting him in the side. The force slides him off the vehicle, to a tumbling stop on the pavement. He shudders and tries to rise. But the electrical current is still messing with his motor control. The flying Epic is closing in on the man, likely to help his friend/accomplice>What do?
>>36338689Suicide is the only answer
>>36338689Time to fight, Brandon you zap em i'll make sure they can't dodge *manipulate metal*
>>36338918At least try to hide your samefag. You'll make the QM cry.
>>36338805force the metal into open wounds quickly
>>36338948I honestly wasn't samefagging, but whatever
You stop the vehicle, slamming on the brakes. A screech does across the plain, you going from eighty to zero in three seconds. You pile out of the RV, vectoring to the fallen Epic. You pull out a web of steel, a net of metal curling around the man's body.You pull out another blade of steel, forming it into a needle. You jab it into the man's neck, using knowledge from movies to go right into the spinal cord. The blade sinks into the dense cells in his neck, halting against stone-like muscle. You pour more steel into the wound, forcing the skin apart.The blade sinks deeper and deeper into the man's body, forming a wide cut in the man's skin.He struggles against the metal bonds, breaking the solid metal containing his body. You reform the bonds, then focus more on the blade.You shove it down, feeling it grate against bone.Suddenly, something snaps in the man. The blade goes through his neck like a hot knife through butter. Blood sprays out, then stops with the man's heart.You reach down and touch the still warm body, feeling a jolt of heat run through you. Your eyes burn, nose and mouth on fire like you ate a Bhut Jolokia.>Gained Invulnerability IIMakes rifle shots(.223, .30, 5.56) along with buckshot near useless against you. Bruises, but most won't enter the body. Pistols might as well be a guy throwing pebbles at you. Watch out of heavier rounds, though.The other Epic is closing in, flying straight at you. Brandon tries to deter him with hot lead, but he seems to stop the bullets as they get within his range.>What do?
>>36339397Neat invulnerability 2, More metal time, thorw his buddies corpse at him for lulz then rip some metal out of the grib see how good his TK is.
So am I the only anon still here?
>>36339629Lurking here, in a dnd game and aren't really paying enough attention to join in
>>36339673fair enough hope it goes well.
>>36339397Get between the van and him, and when he's close enough, vector him to the ground.
>>36339673Godspeed, anon. May you murder many monsters on this day.
>>36339440>>36339730Since metal ahs longer range than Vector, how about we combine the 2?
>>36339846Works for me. Metal to distract him on the approach, then vector to take him by surprise.
The flying Epic closes in, surrounded by a shimmering ball. Brandon fires off a few more rounds, before a series of clicks signal an empty box. Brandon shrugs, unhitches the gun from it's pintle mount, then places it in the RV's loft. He climbs up from the gun nest, hands covered in blue light. He climbs onto the rooftop, blue light armoring his body.Brandon walks down from the RV, making stairs from his hardlight. He jumps the last few feet, then runs to your side. His blue clad hands crackle with electricity, balls of light and electricity forming in his hands.You lift the metal-coverd body, then fire it forward at the flying Epic. It slams into the shimmering wall, then separates into a fine red mist. The mist incorporates itself in the ball of air, tinting it pink.His abrasive air ball continues forward, like a pinball machine sent it straight at you. He gets close, then you jab steel up into the air around you. The air slowly destroys your weapon, but not before he is poked with a few blades. Sadly, they don't manage to do any real damage.>What do>What does Brandon do?
>>36339981Guess we consensused to late.Zach Waits tell he gets close then Vector him into his own field.Brandon either hits him with hard light, lightning or bullets depending on viability.So Calamity did this guy have a Epic rage trigger?
>>36340048>Zach Waits tell he gets close then Vector him into his own field.
>>36340048Jumper or Aang?
>>36340110Thought jump was dead? Meant the aang guy into his own field, but If that isn't possible(Zach should know) then hammer him into the dirt.
>>36340085Depending on how the field is suspended we could conceivably kill him with his own power.
>>36340150I really have to agree with >>36340085 here. Is English a second language, or are you just in a really late time zone?
>>36340287I typed to quickly for my own good and I've been having a severe lack of sleep.
>>36340150Was wondering about about the rage triggerVector Aang into the ground or into his air ball if possible? Y/N
>>36340340Well you showed us Zach going into an epic rage and getting a power spike I was guessing Aang had the same thing happen to him.Y
>>36340364oh, thats what you meant. No, just a high powered Air Manipulator.
>>36340449Ah that's useful, is his weakness say touching the ground?
>>36340340Vector him into his airball. Preferably the side farther away from us, so we don't just bring him closer to us.>>36340364That was probably just a fight or flight inspired adrenaline rush. Sort of like the whole concept of limiters.
>>36340449air sure ain't re directing lighting have the kid blast him
>>36340537Say having him touch actual natural earth or being bound down to the ground?
>>36340582try it to find out
>>36340537cant we just surround him in mete beyond his buble so he has no air?
>>36340610Out of city so we'll run out besides he's ripping said metal to tatters.
>>36340610Sure, but his range is fairly large and it takes a long time to suffocate with a ball of air around you
>>36340670How about we drive him into the ground, and force him underground, causing the ground to cave in above him, and cutting off his air supply.Effectively bury him alive.
"Brandon, whats your range with those electro-balls?""Never got to try much, maybe fifty feet?""When I say so, throw as many as you can at the Epic.""Okay"You roll to the side, with Brandon going in the opposite direction. You spring up to one knee, throwing an uppercut while rising from your crouch. The Epic shoots up, then slowly stops. He hovers in the air, then swoops down at you."Now!"Brandon rises up, throwing balls of light and lightning at the plummeting Epic. The hardlight/electricity combo flies through the air field, shrinking a bit as they move away from Brandon. One strikes the airbender in the leg, which jolts and goes limp. The unfocused Epic looses control of the air, falling straight down.Kid's a fucking Taser that eats.You advance with Brandon behind you, on the fallen Epic. He's standing up, two whirling balls of air around his hands. He lifts his hands, the balls shredding the grass and a small bush nearby.>What do?Ignore filename, had been planning the Grand Dragon to have lightning and fire powers
>>36340891Metal from the road up through the back of his head. He fought well. Might as well make his death quick.
>>36340891charge him vector wind away from us then shank his ass

>>36341137>>36341139I think Aang just told us to fuck ourselves.
>>36341163The bonus is your death is swift
>>3634116341 just means we take a hit or 2 we have invulnerability 2 and regen we can take it.
>>36341171Well, he is the avatar.
>>36341217Dear god I hope he can't power nullify.
>>36341270He's just an air manipulator.Course, particularly powerful gusts of wind have been known to strip concrete, so this could still be bad depending on how strong he is.
>>36341308Yeah, glad we got Invulnerability leveled up. Should give us a bit better chance.
>>36341353i am wondering how much xp we need to level something up we got 400 what we need 1000 ?
Dubs like this are too rare not to be good. We're playing by Ogre Civ rules now!"Surprise, cunt"The Epic leaps forward, swinging a wide haymaker at your head. Holy shit, he is strong. Really strong. Like the cunt at the school who regrew his head.Fucking super strength. Great. at least it's not his dump stat like Jumper's invincibilityHis wind doesn't seem to be doing much to you, seems like your skin is too powerful. Then he ramps it up.All of your exposed skin burns, like sandpaper was ground against it.You watch, smiling slightly, as Brandon throws another electro-ball at the man. You drop to the ground, pulling steel into a dome around you. The dome starts to wear away, as Aang cuts into your steel. The barrage stops, as the man shakes and falls next to you. You open the dome, forming it into a spiked hammer and driving it into his skull. Blood and brains splatter across the grass, making it look like Christmas came early. You crawl over to the body, skin burning with every movement. The scraps are healing already, but it still hurts like a bitch. You touch the body, and are greeted with the familiar pain of absorbing a power.>Gained Super Strength IYou are above and beyond an Olympic athlete. Lift half a ton, squat half a ton, bench seven hundred pounds. All this, and you never look any bigger than a normal EpicYou've killed two Epics, absorbed their powers, and Brandon killed another in the city. The grand Dragon likely isn't happy with you.>What do?>Want to spend XP?
>>36341426$00 for metal and regen, 550 for vector ivulnerbilty was 600 and power steal is 800
>>36341431Patch up our ride, talk to the kid tell him good job he did some great work, and then get on the road again tell we hit a city.Whats our exp and level costs?
>>36341431>>What do?how long has it been since we downed bird bitch could we make it back and find her before the 10 minuet limit? if so book itif not fix up the RV and book it out of townthen tell the kid not to use powers in cities they probley got sensors
Total XP: 750Next levels you can buyPower Stealing: 800. Lets you copy four powers at once, at 60% power at absorption(you have regen&steel at 50% power)Invulnerablity: 750. Get shot by a HMG and keep coming. Even large rifle rounds and shotgun slugs just knock the wind out of you. Explosives and tanks are a problem still.Regen: 400 or absorb another regen power. Makes wounds scab over in a minute and deeper wounds take a few hours to be almost healed. Don't tear your stitches, though, in a day you are fine. Must keep brain intactSteel Manipulation: 400 or absorb another regen power. Lets you control more steel from a farther range. Allows for high limited iron manipulation, but iron control is much weakerVector Control: 600. Upgrades max speed(50mph to 60mph). Heavier things and items lightly rooted in the ground can be moved. WIth lots of practice, can allow for a double jump.Super Strength: 600. Doubles your power. Lift or squat a ton, bench half a ton. When lifting things, they won't break from having the weight all on two hands.
>>36341431Book it. Need to get a head start on the grand dragon.The New York epics can help. Epics are assholes, but EVERYONE hates the KKK
>>36341578Dump it into vector control. I wanna stop a moving truck.
>>36341578>Vector ControlIf we grind this high enough, it can functionally replace most of our other powers anyways.
>>36341610>>36341611Shouldn't we save for power steal? The more slots we have the more varied our attack is and it'll bump strength steel and regen.
>not saving it for power stealingas expected of you retards.
>>36341578save it for the power stealing its better all around
>>36341578fuck still can't get Power Stealing: Bank the points
>>36341642Eh, that's fair enough. Let's save.
Save for Power Stealing. Patch up the RV, then get on the road again
>>36341720Tell kid to keep a lid on his powers when we're going through areas we could get jumped but say he did a fucking amazing job when the chip were down.
>>36341611Just saying, vector control is a retardely OP power. Since OP has stated that the power is only going to make them move faster, there's no reason to bother leveling it because the best way is to make them stop.Make them stop their absolute position in the universe.The amount of force your body would take going from almost 70,000 mph to 0 would kill anyone. Stopping someone in their absolute place is all you ever need to do to get out of anything. And it all works. Everything on earth is going almost 70k mph, so any time destruction needs to happen, there you go.
>>36334522I'd rather Amadeus Cho. Pic related.
>>36341870True but I think Calamity will nix that for a high end vector. Right now we should get power stealing to a level 4-5 so our steal are near full kick then focus on vector.
>>36341720also we should form some intricate steal things to have on us bracelets rings thin chain belt/cord, you know things to wear.
>>36341870Probably at our current level we can't affect something like that.
>>36341870Anyone who has been on /tg/ long enough knows what that means.*CLANG*
>>36341870Your powers are nowhere near strong enough for that.If an Epic goes past Calamity, they loose their powers
>>36341918but if you pump vector, you don't need other powers? Controlling the speed and direction of everything is absolutely ridiculous. I don't think OP actually thought about what that means before making this. This is one of the most abuse-able powers I've heard of in a while. What about things on an atomic level? What about sub-atomic? OP states "solid object" but what makes a solid object other than how the atoms are arranged? If you could control the individual movement of atoms, you can raise or drop temperatures of anything to absolute zero or to near immeasurable levels of heat. Being a physical being would be not vital anymore, as you can move your atoms to do whatever the fuck you want. If you change the speed and direction of subatomic particles, you can create nuclear explosions at will. The other powers of steel manipulation and regeneration from the first post could be done with JUST vector manipulation. This is all shit just off the top of my head. Pumping vector makes you a god.
>>36341870I don't think you know how vectors work. Vectors need to be incredibly powerful, or sustained for a long amount of time to change it that much. What we do is apply force in directions, causing gradual acceleration.
>>36342112That is not at all how the OP put it in his first post. He said we CONTROLLED vectors, not applied force to things. Those are drastically different things.
>>36342111Yeah its good but it has a force limit, size limit and fine manipulation limit, leveling it ups those limits, but we can still be taken by surprise so leveling power stealing to make our regen and other powers stronger would be smart.
>>36342179The point is that we manipulate them, changing their direction or strength by a (relatively) minor amount. Which is, in all effects and purposes, equivalent to creating a second vector to change the first.
You pull up a section of the road, and form it into a plate of solid steel. You then mold this to the RV, which luckily has thick steel siding instead of aluminum. It looks bad, a long silver scar on the black paint. But it keeps the food inside, and thats all that really matters. You then pull up as much steel as possible, leaving behind you a fifty yard long field of spikes to pop any tire that come this way.Once in the RV, Brandon opens the microwave and throws two bags of popcorn inside. The familiar smell of microwave popcorn fills the RV, and Brandon slams into the cushioned seat at your side. He sets the bags of popcorn on a fold down table, one for each of you. He covers his hand in blue light, claiming that he doesn't like the oily feel of the butter."Brandon, you have to keep a lid on your powers. I know it's fun to use them, but we have to be careful until we get somewhere safe. So, no powers unless I say so or it is a life or death situation. Got it?""Fine," The blue glove disappears from his hand, leaving the butter to cover his hand. He looks kinda miffed about the butter on his hand, but nothing to bad. "Yu have to do the same Zach. No powers unless we need them.""Deal, pinky swear on it."The two of you lock pinkies, yellowish grease covering your hands. You wipe them off on a towel, then grab a drink from the mini-fridge under the radio. Grape soda, god's gift to man.1/2
The next three days pass without any real events, though you catch Brandon using his powers to power his laptop. You lob a battery to him, landing next to his arm. You cross through a tunnel to Manhattan, where a border has been set up like in Nashville. Only here, there is much less blatant racism. An asian man with short black hair has an electric tablet, walks up to your RV. He opens the door without asking, writing a note on the tablet."Name, occupation, reason for being in New York CIty, are you or a passenger an Epic? If the answer is yes to the last questions, please list powers.>What say>Lie about powers(leave out which ones?)
>>36342230You guys do whatever you want, I just stopped by to point out a (without specification by the OP about how the powers work) glaringly obvious game breaking use of powers.>>36342257That's the first question I'd have asked had I gotten here earlier: how exactly do these powers work? If it is to apply force to create separate vectors to counteract the first, then yes, you're absolutely right. That'd take a retarded level of power. It was my understanding because of the wording of the OP that that wasn't the case. We controlled the speed and direction of things, leading me to think that we controlled the vectors currently affecting said object. Allowing us to "move" the force applied to however we wanted it, instead of using a second force to counteract.
>>36334753Yeah, although to be fair, Accelerator being able to do all that was indeed, bullshit.Now, I've only seen the first season of Index and some of season 2 and Railgun, because I kinda hate Railgun for turning Railgun into a pandering moe girl/K-On reject, but the whole "I'm super smart in math" thing could have just as well been "I have instinctual knowledge of how my power works and my brain/the universe calculates for me in my subconscious, I just have to think or visualize what I want".Because it's not like we ever see him actually solving math problems or equations in a university setting, where his supposed super math brain would be far more useful to mankind than whatever the heck he was doing.*ahem*Anyways, my point is, perhaps we should assume vector control is more instinctual or calculations are done subconsciously, ala a regular person's ability to estimate the size and distance of an object without having to crunch numbers. 'cause some of the hax potential powers probably can't even be calculated using current math or without information that simply wouldn't be available to the vector controller unless he had an unconventional sensing apparatus.I'll stop now because my rant's kinda long anyways.
>>36342321Did we catch any radio or TV chatter about NYC? we need more info before we can make a decision. I'm inclined to be truthful here about what we have as far as powers go (except power stealing) just because we're going to be here for a minute. But I need a frame of reference before we go on.
>>36342321>Lie about powers(leave out which ones?)Don't call power stealing "stealing". Say it's imitation, that way we leave out the whole "brutally murdering epics for their powers" thing.
>>36342331In character, no one really understands Epic powers. Sure, they can be used to advance science, but studying them is based on more guesswork than hard facts.Zach is able to change the vector of an object, using an invisible force to change the speed and direction. It's hard to explain, mainly because its an Epic power and I never majored in physics
>>36342382Academy City can build supercomputers that can predict the movement of every particle in the atmosphere for the next month, they don't really need Accelerator's help to do math.Raildex is a textbook example of rather intense power creep though, and isn't really a good example to follow.
>>36342321>Lie about powers(leave out which ones?)leave stealing power and vector and regeneration also don't forget to describe them like we barley understand them our selves
>>36342444>using an invisible force to change the speed and directionok that answers that. none of the things I previously said could happen without being retardedly high level, which as you said makes you lose your powers. I just come from MtG where word choice and shit is key. and my first instinct with superpowers is to see how I can abuse physics>never majored in physicsthat explains it. the rest seems cool though. keep up the good work>captcha >Blessed nstruspi
>>36342444This whole conversation is brining me back to my vector calculus classes. Can we talk about something else? Like superheating metal?
>>36342384Truckers say that Epics are a ruling class, with normies being the equivalent of peasants. They can still be high ranking and rich, but Epics are gonna be almost universally better. Most truckers aren't Epics, so they're kinda bitter about it
>>36342549Then yeah me and the kid are epics ive got(list off everything but power steal and vector) and list the kids power. Play off your powers as useful but kinda weak and unknown to you, no need to make a target of yourself.
>>36342602we can leave regeneration too out to it may be unusual to have more than 3 powers we don't want to make our self a target.
>>36342602>giving any information away for no benefit whatsoeverAh, retard anon, never change.
>>36342626rather leave out strength then regen, regen can't be hidden we can always fake weakness.
Leave out which powers?>Power Stealing(this is almost a given)>Invulnerability>Regeneration>Metal Manipulation>Super Strength
>>36342660I am not too sure we are tough enough that any injury healing could be thought to be natural with how week it is right now
>>36342709>>36342709>Power Stealing(vital)>Regeneration (can probley hide with Invulnerability>Vector (an probley hide with Super Strength
>>36342709>Power Stealing(a must)>Vector (telekinesis is a bitch can be hidden by strength and metal)>Regeneration (weak enough to be spoofed atm)
>>36342709Also, you came here to join the Epic Trio's army/police force. What you say will effect your placement in the military
>>36342800Tell them about strength, steel manipulation, and regen
>>36342800We want a position where we get to fight other epics, to train our powers and steal more.
>>36342800Tell them about invulnerability regen and metal manipulation then. a good minor tank with not much punch outside the city.
>>36342709Leave out power steal, and metal manipulation. We can clime to a high point of power here
>>36342881I vote this one
>>36342881look there going to notice the sstr or vector when we do shit we gotta tell them about one the regen we can play off as never noticing before if discovered
>>36343029In the city we can use metal better than vectors hence why im hiding it. we can add in minor sstr some supers have 4 or more powers right Calamity?
>Regen>Invulnerability>Metal Manipulation>Super strengthGood?
>>36343140yeah only invul is anything remotely impressive power level wise but all together makes us a solid tank.
>>36343136if we can do it better show them its what we use most in a fight any ways I don't want to find out what they will do if they find out we lied to them.
>>36343140na tell them about >Metal Manipulationwe use it too much not to tell them
>>36343222I think those were the ones he said we WERE telling them. Hence the glaring lack of power stealing.
>>36343199Leaps are from strength and the weird shit we pull is strength+invul(to withstand hurting ourselves)+metal
>>36343136Yeah, Epics normally have from one to five powers of various strengths
>>36343243o ok that's fine then
>>36343256Wow. Power stealing is more broken than I thought. We can just pump that up, and play off te theme of inevitable, calling ourself the inevitable end to all epics.Get some boss powers that work well together.
>>36343140good, makes us a solid tank with just enough to get in good without telling better powers
>>36343249Running fast can also be from strength.Propelling rocks through stone can be throwing shit really hard.Moving people can be magneto style metal control.
>>36343303yup, hide our 2 most glaringly dangerous powers till we can hit the top.
Zachary and Brandon Zelnakis, Epics. I can manipulate metals, regenerate cells, am super strong and I don't get hurt like a normal human. My brother can create electricity and hard light. I've come to speak with the leaders of your city. We'll be expecting accommodations and a place for our vehicles."Of course sir, I am sorry for the inconvenience. What floor would you like? We have... the fifth, seventeenth, and the twenty second floors open for residence while we set up permanent housing for you. "We'll take the twenty second floor.""Yes sir. We'll have a key card made for each of you. Please use the rightmost lane while you are here, it is for Epics only. A flag will be made for any car that you have, simply attach it to the mirror. I'll enter in the address of the hotel to your GPS." The man bows to you, then closes the door gently.You follow the directions, staying on the outer lane. No cars are in your way, the other lanes crowded with cars. It's good to be king.1/2
>>36343303>>36343331>hide our 2 most glaringly dangerous powers till we can hit the top.All the while paying respects to our fallen Epic brethren. I like it.
You arrive at the hotel, but there has to have been some mistake. The GPS says 50 Central Park South, but there is no way thats right. The Ritz Carlton shouldn't even let you in the door, an unemployed man with a small child trailing after him. Hell, they should call the police.You walk through the door, a doorman in a red coat holding it for you. The man manning the reception desk looks up, then scrambles to grab a pair of keys off his desk."Hello sirs! We've been informed of your arrival and had your rooms prepped for you. You'll find the minibar stocked with the best liqueur in New York, all complimentary. Here are your keys, in your room is a menu for room service. Free of charge of course. Have a nice stay while you are here."The man hands you the two keys, one of which goes to Brandon. The other finds a home in your pocket. You enter the elevator, having the man send a person to drive the RV to the garage. Sliding the key card into a slot in the elevator, the button labeled "22" lights up.You step out into the floor, and enter paradise. >See website for pictures, I cant describe it well enoughhttp://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/NewYorkCentralPark/Rooms/Suites/The-Royal-Suite.htm#c_photo>What do?>Re-enact Home Alone 2's hotel scene>Is there really anything more fulfilling than that?>Boring Write in
>>36343551Ah damn, that's fucking boss."Hold on, let me close his eyes"
>>36343587Home alone 2 hotel scene sounds good.Plus liquor.Also, I find this kinda suspicious. Like, swat team coming through the door in minutes.
>>36343587order some food take a rest watch tv chill outalso were we razed in a barn? remember to thank people a little politeness goes a long way
>>36343551>>36343602rest now brotherwhen enemy just confirm kill with a fist
>>36343602>We become know for being the soft, sensitive Epic>Raising his kid brother all alone>Always gives dead their last rights, starts crying every time>It's not the physical pain that hurts the most>Its the emotionalThen we fuck all the bitches
>>36343331>>36343551>>36343731all this while convincing the world we an Epic that "fights for justice and the common good" making our sudden yet inevitable betrayal/new world order all the sweeter>basically Doom 2.0>>36343587>Re-enact Home Alone 2's hotel scene>bro out with our new little brother, if the kid plays his cards right he can be part of the new world
>>36343793look we can be the best we can we could gain every power there is at super high level but... we will never be on Dooms level if er could get to doom .95 we would be like a god or you know a god
>>36343731>>36343793This so husking hard.
Am I the only one who kinda wishes we had gotten the Power Transfer ability? With power stealing we could've made and army of loyal Epics
>>36343882that's the great part we can still get itjust early on its useless
>>36343846We can top doom. Just give up time and the help of our new bro (how can probably power his own gun-gam) we will get there
Why do I get the idea of New York being run by a mobster called Mr.Vain >https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8yHY7i3PZCgSong related
Brandon, grab the menu. Order everything you want and everything you can't pronounce. Get them to bring ice cream. Lots of ice cream." You call out, voice echoing in the massive rooms. While you can't see his face, you assume it is a mix between delight, wonder, and his first orgasm.An hour later, a massive feast is laid out on your dining room table. The table, able to seat ten, is full and has food spilling onto trestle tables and kitchen counters. Extra rare kobe beef steaks, burgers, ribs, shrimp, wild boar, lamb, swordfish, salmon, veal, and rabbit make up a large part of the dinner. A scattering of salads keeps the feast "healthy". Cheesecake, apple cobbler, freshly made doughnuts, molten lava cake, creme brulee, brownies, and cookies are arranged in an arc around Brandon in various states of destruction.The ice cream.Dear God, the ice cream.Piles of it, kept cold by blasts of CO2, litter the table. Entire tubs of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry gave their lives to the cause. But their deaths were not in vain. A new, free society has been created, where no man is higher than anoth...I'm sorry. I can't say that with a straight face.But it is great.Three Baskin Robins were looted to satisfy you and your little brother. An IHOP ran out of batter for waffles, so much is used for the feast. Millions of children in cocoa plantations will curse your name, for causing a refreshed dependance on slave labor to meet the needs of your little family. Twenty million Mexican immigrants got jobs in the strawberry field, so great was the need for strawberry icecream.You singlehandedly jumpstarted the American economy by binge eating ice cream.>End of thread 3>I'll remain for questions and comments for a while
>>36344183And, yes, you get experience for it+50 XPTotal: 800
>>36344183Aw, end thread? DamWhen will the next one be?
>>36344215Is that enuf to boost power steal?
>>36344183Beautiful.>>36344215enough to lvl up Power Stealing?
>>36344240Monday, maybe.Follow me on twitter for updates on the thread@CalamityQM
>>36344183>You singlehandedly jumpstarted the American economy by binge eating ice cream.Between an eight year old boy going through early superhero puberty and an ex-personal trainer with more powers than any other epic, sounds about right
>>36344263>>36344258Yeah, level up?
>>36344294its what we've saved for so go for it
>>36344294Yep, level up.Also, we get xp by eating ice cream? I feel like we should turn into a KND villain, and call ourselves the ice-creaminator, use vectors to fire ice cream, metal manipulation to weaponize spoons, and super strength, invulnerability, and regen to look fucking boss while doing it.Also, you said you'd reveal our weakness, OP.
>>36344402Unless, of course, you just revealed it subtly, and that we require a large amount of food.
>>36344402Yes I did. Did I reveal it in this thread? Or last one? Maybe next thread?Such is life as an Epic.You'll encounter it often until you figure it out
>>36344492I wanna say its machines since we're so human body focused with powers, it'd also explain the mech failing on us if it wasn't just the nat 1
>>36344521Thats a very interesting guess
>>36344492just tell me this>have we already encountered it>and if so what thread(s)I'll figure it out
>>36344535can't tell you. That would ruin the whole "Epics don't know their weakness, and it can be damn near anything". Good luck on your quest.
>>36344532and we could just play it off as being really bad with tech if people asked depending how extensive it was>Car-ok>computer-crashes every time, even when using calculator >microwave-ok but gets wonky>mech-total shut down
>>36344558>ruinmore like having fun trying to guess
