PPQ Issue #71>World's End, Girl's Rondo>My twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOpCosgrove>Archives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Peter%20Parker%20Quest >PPQ Character sheet: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1J9T9OKeaR-Xk-wvPWf36IsWqc5hr9RRTHRH9ROcAEwo/edit?usp=sharing>PPQ rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PjFpFLw-KpScNeg3XK_aqiOs2_7JAPEf3KGe6kbRKuY/edit?usp=sharing As your Aunt consoles the girl who is likely Flash Thompson's sister (you didn't even know he had a sister) your mind races as you try to deal with this as well. The Green Goblin could be up to something and Flash's sister just got hit by her father and jesus if he's Venom there's no way that will end well. So you find yourself split between two focuses. Do you search for Flash Thompson, who is apparently missing according to his sister, or do you go and see if the Green Goblin's getting something ready that could cause a lot of damage? And worse, yet, if the Green Goblin is Harry, you know that means he's up to something. The guy's a grandstanding jerk these days, but he always had a scheme in reserve. If you called him out as Spider-man, his ego might not let him back down, which could buy you time to ferret him out. >[ ]Go look for Flash (his phone isn't answering)>[ ]Go look into the Goblin's schemes?>[ ]Go and Call out the Green Goblin>[ ]Write in
>>39244949>[ ]Go look for Flash (his phone isn't answering)
>>39244949>Set up a flash drive for Tony Stark, with all the relevant information on Hydra and shield, as well as a brief one-over of our plan for the Stark Expo
>>39244949>[ ]Go look into the Goblin's schemes?
>>39244949>[X]Go look for Flash (his phone isn't answering)But be sure to tell people what we're doing.Unfortunately with Harry, we have a time limit of whenever he decides to come home, at which point his dad will say we called, which means Harry will know that we're on to him. But helping a girl find her brother seems more important and something we can actually accomplish.
>>39245024I'm gonna second this. We're far from the only hero around, we can pass this off to the fantastic four.
>>39244949Can we first do a really quick verification that Flash really does have a sister and this is her?
>>39245110Which part? I mean both Harry and Flash were at least former friends, and if they see us taking an interest in them, they might be less spooked than having Iron Man or the Fantastic Four show up. Also I think we're still kind of avoiding the FF because clones make us feel icky. And having any of our friends investigate Harry for us pretty much guarantees them getting thrown off a bridge.
If we was to get the Green light from Tony to make a Iron Spider other durability what else would we be getting?
>>39245152We don't need to have them investigating harry, but we can tell them we've got a tip about the Green Goblin and can't handle it, and pass on the list of equipment that got stolen. The FF are just as capable of handling scientific stuff as we are, probably moreso, and they need to get out of their shell.
>>39245168Getting a mecha suit will never not be a waste of time and energy. Almost as bad as the Kamen Rider fetishism.
>>39245195Eh, Eddie told us not to tell anyone though, especially the police.I feel like ideally we find Flash and then after an obligatory fight scene we work with him to take down the Goblin, since I'm pretty sure Flash has encountered him (as Taskmaster) a lot more than we have.
>>39245205>Getting a mecha suit will never not be a waste of time and energyI'm saying if we had the time to make one what would be the benefits I'm neutral to the idea and I wanted to know because I remember people wanted to do it but I never did as why all I could think of was alot more durability and gadgets
>>39245240And in the meantime, how much progress would be made on stopping Hydra? Or getting Tony to not fuck us?
>>39245307That's...a fair point. Alright, compromise. We make a copy of the drive, drop that off with potts, then head out to stop Goblin. It'll take a few hours tops.
>>39245307I cant recall but does ay one at Stark know or identity?Also couldn't we just set up a program to download the files on the flash drive while we went to get Flash?
>>39245307I'm pretty sure it's been clearly stated both by people in the thread, and our friends outside of it, that trying to take down HYDRA on our own is suicidally retarded. Also, the problem with informing Tony is that it's tricky to do that without also outing ourselves as Spider-Man, who isn't really in a very popular position right now because not even a good first impression can escape from the innate shittiness that is Marvel civilians.
>>39245367The good Doctor Spyral.>>39245168That's a very good question indeed.So there seems to be a lead for getting a flash drive with info to stark or finding Flash here, is that right?
>>39245340So are you just voting to ignore Flash? That thing he's wearing has the potential to be incredibly dangerous, but in theory he's not too far gone. Getting a handle on him before he becomes a super villain seems the responsible thing to do.
>>39245430>That's a very good question indeed.No it isn't. If we don't hold back, we're already stronger than any hydraulics or whatever can provide without crippling our agility, which is our best combat attribute. Seeing that Stark's current technological progresion is Iron Man 2, thinking he can build anything that would be an unambiguous plus for us in the near future is absurd. Especially with everything else we have to do.
>>39245450Of course not. I'm just saying make sure we give Stark something to keep him busy WHILE we deal with Flash.
>>39245557Is he even in New York right now? Much less still hunting Venom? That was like... a month ago, right?
>>39245523Considering that Stark himself is a pioneer of dozens of different technological fields and alloys, I'd say it IS a good question what having Stark's not only allowance but help would net you in such an instance. He's also capable of synthesizing new elements, though peter's probably not entirely aware of that one. I'm pretty sure making a stronger material is not a concern for him. Regardless, gonna final destination vote here: reply with only a link to this post and the number you support.1.go look for Flash Thompson immediately2.Get the flash drive ready as your first priority.
>>39245619Regardless, if we go active again, he might decide to ruin our fun.
>>39245650My main concern was range of motion and agility, since even wearing a jacket instead of tights is enough to give us a penalty.

>>39245716http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Spider_ArmorThere wasn't much of a mention of the agility of the suit but IF we did plan to make it we could bring that up
>>39245367>Also couldn't we just set up a program to download the files on the flash drive while we went to get Flash?We could ask MJ to do it for us or Gwen
>>39245788I kinda want to do street level crimefighting. I feel like we're hardly spider-man at all in this quest sometimes
>>39245962I think we've tried a couple times, but New York City is huge anon. Actually finding any crimes in progress and getting there on time to prevent them is monumentally unlikely. Also I'm pretty sure we've reached the point where people feel as if we're creating costumed villains by our continued presence. We would have been better off if we kept being Spider-Men to fighting metacriminals like the Hobgoblin but we caved for those sweet karma points. In the long run, I don't think that was a good move.
>>39245927>MJ I don't think we should bring her into this. Also we should definetely talk to Felicia before handing the info over to Stark considering there's a lot of data on her family as well.
>>39245885>Fabricated with advanced protein-scale nano-technology and exotic materials handling, LEP skin display, impact sensing armor integrated life support ant all-spectrum communications powered by a hybrid opto-electronic computer and using super conducting, high performance plastic throughout, the Iron Spider Costume is truly one of Stark's greatest works > Enhanced Chestpiece: A foamed titanium nitrile fabric chestpiece has body contoured and articulated panels to support the occupant. The chestpiece contains the highest concentration of Kasimir Plate Batteries-- nano-scale power generating devices that exploit "zero point" energy. Can generate 1.2kWatts at peak demand. I don't think Stark is there yet. I don't think REED is there yet.
>>39246310I forget, isn't Richards pretty much just now figuring out Unstable Molecules?
With Aunt May looking to have things in control for the moment, you head back towards the basement door. “I know this is the absolute worst time, Aunt May, but I need to get this thing I'm working on done before the deadline.”Aunt May gives you a disappointed look before focusing on the girl again, offering her something to snack on while you head back into the basement. Making sure your computer is off of any network, you take a flash drive and wipe it down of any fingerprints and empty and reformatted before loading only the relelvant information on SHIELD and HYDRA onto it. It takes a little while to load the information onto it. As you do so, you re-familiarize yourself with the information you're uploading while quieting that feeling of guilt with the reasoning that there are more important things at stake with what you're doing.By the time you get upstairs, your Aunt and Flash's sister are gone. There's a note pinned to the message board from your aunt. Picking it up, you skim it over before reading it again. And again.>1/2
>>39246391'Peter, I might not always understand the things you're doing and the Good Lord knows that Ben and I are more than likely of little help considering how talented and intelligent you've always been, but we always tried to teach you to do the right thing. Ben might not think he has the right to bring your father up to scold you, but I will tell you that your father was a good man whose desire to help people led him to science and medicine. But even when he was behind on schedules, busy with his projects and had dozen of obligations, he always made the time to stop and help people when he saw them in trouble. I've always said that he'd always be proud of you no matter what you do, but today I think he'd be profoundly disappointed in you today.'Captain Stacy is escorting Miss Thompson and I to the station to discuss where she'll be staying in light of her and what they can do to find her brother, your friend, and Ben will be providing us with a ride home when he gets off of work. I hope you managed to meet your deadline.'You find that you need to sit for a few moments, a bitter weight on your chest. >[ ]Head to Stark as Spider-man, drop off the information>[ ]Deliver the Flash Drive as Peter Parker to miss Potts>[ ]Go look for Flash>[ ]Go look into what the Green Goblin's been up to>[ ]other

>>39246418>>[ ]Go look for FlashGod damnit Cosgrove, the worst part is that I'm pretty sure if we HAD focused on Flash, you would have just fucked us over even worse in the long term.>>39246490How the hell can you miss the point this hard?
>>39246455While I have to say I didn't vote for it i can understand the reasoning. We have all this important stuff and we constantly get sidetracked or have new things added to the pile. I can understand wanting to at least get something off of our long list have tasks.
>>39246503Yeah I know, I have no idea why they thought anything else would happen. Like how the fuck can you fail at being Peter Parker this hard?
>>39246418Write on one side of the drive "Closed Network CPUs only."On the other side, "I'm not fucking joking, closed networks only, no cameras over your shoulder. Trust none of your security."
>>39246531But finding Flash was literally the shortest fucking part of the fucking list. It had only one step: Find Flash. And that would be the end of it.Are people just being stupid on purpose?
>>39246585you missunderstand i misquoted it was meant to be:>>39246455see>>39245840
>>39246681Don't look at me, I got here late.
>>39246681there is no way anything in this quest is ever that easy
>>39246688I'm mad becuase you idiots picked the wrong option and we ultimately accomplished nothing to advance any of our plots, but instead made it harder to find Flash and increased Ben and May's death flags. Idiots.
>>39246418>Head to Stark as Spiderman, web the drive to the top floor window as you swing by.
>>39246735Maybe. And Maybe Cosgrove would have fucked us over regardless, but I literally cannot fathom how you thought that blowing off Flash's sister was in any way the best option?
>>39246681I didn't find the thread in time to vote so don't blame me.And this is peter Parker we are talking about. I wouldn't even be surprised if some how looking for Flash landed us in a parallel reality or some shit because we are Peter Parker and the universe shits on him.I still would have voted for that option if I had the chance though.
>>39246418>[X]Go look for FlashThis is what I get for trusting you people.Also, glad to see that while Aunt May can't actually HELP she sure as fuck can make us feel bad.
Guys, lets chill and continue forward. Arguing now will get us nowhere.We swing forward.One webline at a time.
>>39246418>[X]Go look for Flash
>>39246843We can't swing forward unless we agree on a direction. And it seems like right now, most of the players have no fucking idea what that is.
“Damn it.”Getting up, you go to grab your coat before pausing. You'd be more inconspicuous as Peter Parker, but you could cover more ground as Spider-man. And if you went as Spider-man you could probably just web the flashdrive to Stark's window.>[ ]Go in street clothes>[ ]Go as Spider-man

>>39246881but that's the magic of voting and playing with others
>>39246883>[X]Go in street clothesI think it might actually be less suspicious for Peter Parker to have this information than Spider-Man, since Stark already knows that we're fucking around with the Suit.

>>39246969If the QM writes a post that accomplishes nothing but detailing how you fucked up, then that's a sign that you should reassess your priorities.>>39247122No one's participating, I'm pretty sure over half the IPs just popped up for the final destination vote.

>>39246979Not really. A healthy quest shouldn't have people just submit their votes and then tune in to something else, there should be at least some discussion. In this case, how much everyone fucked up.
Pulling out your mild mannered costume bag (which is also secretly the Spectacular Spider-bag? Meh, it needs work and not really the time) with your Spider-man stuff in it, you head out the door. When you're a good distance away, you're soon in your costume and on the move.>[ ]Keep an eye out around where Flash's home is to see I he heads there>[ ]Keep an eye out around the Police Station where your aunt and Flash's sister are>[ ]Make the detour to Stark Industries and drop off the flash drive>write in
>>39247350Discussion is indeed useful.Lets extrapolate.Flash is missing. What does this tell us? What has Flash been up to as far as we're aware?
>>39247421>write inWhen we were looking for the Goblin, didn't we see a lot of pictures of Flash (as Venom) in various locations? Was there like a specific area he seemed to frequent most?

>>39247421>Don't drop off the hard driveGuys you do realize that it's effectively outing us as being Spider-Man right? And Stark ALREADY kind of did that, because Spider-Carnage was created from that tainted blood sample we submitted when we joined his employment, and he hasn't even told us he lost it.>>39247427Well it depends on if our clone has been telling us or the FF anything. Since Flash was able to find him and be very sinister, while also having a Stella-esque ally with him.
>>39247421>>[ ]Keep an eye out around the Police Station where your aunt and Flash's sister are
>>39247421>[ ]Keep an eye out around the Police Station where your aunt and Flash's sister are>write inKeep another eye for anyone else keeping an eye out for Aunt May and Flash's sister.Deleted and re-voted due to misquoting.
>>39247458I mean I feel like that might be the easiest way to find his base. And if he is near the police station then it feels like we'd hardly need to find him since he'd show up himself. Like do we have any reason to assume he does know about his sister but is avoiding her?

You carefully make your way to the Police Station that captain Stacy works at, the one he would have taken Aunt May to. As you look around in the afternoon light, you see a disheveled man in cuffs cursing and being dragged into the station.Glancing around, you see a dark alley nearby. There doesn't seem to be anything suspicious at the moment... Taking a look around the area without being spotted isn't hard when nobody looks up and you're quick and soon enough you see a figure at the edge of the alley you saw earlier, with a black hood covering their head. As you watch the figure, you see an officer starting to near the alley and the figure tensing.>[ ]intervene now>[ ]wait and see. If something bad happens intervene immediately>write in

>>39248424Over the few months since Christmas as more crazy has shown up people have started blaming Spider-Man. Since it wasn't mentioned i wonder if ironically enough JJJ is still on our side.
>>39248424NYPD have a "Capture on sight" order (at best) for unidentified masked vigilantes, if I recall correctly.
>>39248495I warned you guys this would happen. Most versions of Peter Parker has some serious survivor's guilt and various emotional issues and have been told multiple times that even in the field of purely doing good, they're doing things in the most assbackwards way possible. To be honest, I'm not sure if all our web-slinging has actually saved lives, or if we've just been harassing purse-snatchers (and beating up our substitute teacher that one time).
>>39246517>the worst part is that I'm pretty sure if we HAD focused on Flash, you would have just fucked us over even worse in the long term.Yup.Muh Suffering.
>>39248578It isn't really us though. A lot of weird is happening and we are just the first/most public example. We kind of are the scapegoat. There isn't really much we have done to warrant the hate.I still wish Cyclops Ruining Christmas was canon, we would be so much more popular.
You move closer and wait, remaining out of sight, above them in the alley. You see the policeman pass the alley before he'd pulled back into it, the hooded figure holding the man in a choke hold and dragging him further into the alley. As the man loses consciousness, you see the hooded figure's form start to shift into black ooze before taking on a mimic of the man's appearance. As the figure moves to go for the cop's gun, you drop to the alley's ground as the fake cop freezes and looks at you. Venom's voice comes from the cop, sounding more than a bit pissed as the cop looks the part. “What are you doing here, Venom?”He tenses further as you see a few patches of inky blackness appear as he seems to lose focus. “I've got something I need to do. Get lost or I'll make you.”The cop is breathing beneath him, but you can tell that Venom had a reason he was imitating the cop to the point of taking his gun. And you don't like the reason you're imagining.>[ ]Try to talk him down from going down this path>[ ]Stop him by force>[ ]Distract him by bringing up a bigger threat>write in

>>39249402were in a dark alley I highly doubt anyone can see us
So I'd say it's fairly clear that right now at least we should get out of our costume and be there for Flash and his family, and I guess apologize to Aunt May, and then discuss business with Flash later?
>>39249436It's near a police station, and it'd probably be bad for that cop guy to be uncounscious for too long.
>auto success“I know what you're thinking and you don't want to do this.”Venom's hands clench as half of the face melts into a slightly monstrous form of venom's face.. mask.. whatever you'd call it as he hisses out at you so his voice won't carry. “You don't know anything. Do you have any idea what he's done to our family? I don't care what he did to me, but I promised him when I left. I promised him if he laid one hand on her, I'll come for him and there won't be anyone on God's green earth that could stop me from getting to him. You don't know what it's like to have your life ruined by one man!”You pause and look at Venom. Half transformed and the other disguised half about to tear up- with sorrow or fury you can't be sure. “I do actually. A very dangerous man killed my parents and covered it up and walked away Scot-free and I didn't even know about it until recently. So, please do not tell me that I have no idea what it is like to have my life ruined by one man. And yes, I would very much like to bring him to justice.”You see the eyes widen slightly as you calmly, almost clinically shut down his argument without going into the details of it. “So, what's the difference? Why are you stopping me?”“The difference is that he has very powerful friends and I'm not the only one who has been hurt by him and his friends. The other point is that I know you're better than this.”Venom's eyes narrow as he approaches you. “You don't know the first damned thing about me.”>1/2
>>39249737You look at the still breathing cop and every article on his appearances you'd found. “I know you're not a killer. You've worked yourself hard, harder than I ever have and have been working to bring a lot of scumbags to justice but you never once killed them, any of them. You went out of your way to help that person who was dosed with the lizard serum when it would have been easier and safer to just kill him. I know you could have just killed that cop and done it anyway, but you didn't even though it would have been quicker and safer. Because deep down you want to help people and you've honestly done a damned better job of it than I have ever done, despite the world itself being out to get you.Venom looks slightly off put and conflicted as you step forward. “I also know you love your sister because the first thing you told her to do if she was ever hurt was to go to one of the safest places you knew. And she's worried about you, more than herself. Right now, you can still go and be her big brother. And she needs you.”Venom's form shrinks back into the hooded jacket as he seems to deflate. You can see his real face. Black and blue, exhausted and defeated. >[ ]have him go to the police station>[ ]Ask him about the Green Goblin- if he's seen anything>[ ]write in

“Go see your sister.”Flash nods and heads out of the alley. After he's gone, you reposition the cop to be sitting upright and make sure he'll wake up soon. When you've gotten far enough away, not sure what your plans are, the phone that's part of your mask begins to ring. The number itself seems to be blocked.>[ ]answer it>[ ]ignore it

>>39250256>>39250296There's a very slim chance that whoever's calling doesn't know our secret identity.
>>39250297How about"Welcome to Webwork, your one-stop shop for all your internet needs."
>>39250340Yeah, that's fine. Seconding.
You answer the call as dryly as you can. "Welcome to Webwork, your one-stop shop for all your internet needs." You feel yourself almost deafened by hysterical cackling before an amused, almost enthused voice answers you. “So, that guy was tell me the truth. ...About this anyway.”The maniacal voice of the Green Goblin answers you as he clears his voice. “So, I haven't seen you around lately and that's boring me, but I realize that I'm clearly at fault here too, Spider-man. So meet me at the top of the Empire State's Building soon.”There a pause again before he speaks again, his voice more twisted and bloodthirsty. “Or else.”A second later, he's hung up on you.>Any plan of action to propose other than to just head to the Empire State Building?
>>39250485He forgot to say "Come Alone". Call Gwen, Call the Fantastic Four, fuck it, call Tony fucking Stark.
>>39250485>notify phone callable allies>head to site.
>>39250485Go see if Ben wants to help us. He wants to be a hero, and goblin said we couldn't being two of us.
>>39250485Try to reach the FF, The Ghost RIder thing or whatever she is, Fucking hide the USB or straight up destroy it if we're not going to see down and have a grown up conversation with TonyCall the Aunt and Uncle Call FeliciaCall MJ
>>39250485>Call Tony, let him know Goblin's up to some shit and if it doesn't end well someone should be ready to clean up the fallout. Also, need to talk after.
>>39250485Bring them all in - Gwen, the fantastic four, tony stark, ghost rider, venom if he's done in the station. Bring everybody!
>>39250545You know I still don't know why we haven't told Stark we're Pider man
>>39250626Bepuzzzzz he's not baman
>>39250578I don't see the need to do the last three.But as for the FF, yeah since I doubt the Goblin can pierce Sue's cloaking, if we do call Stark, ask him if he can lurk in the upper atmosphere at first, to prevent the Goblin from being spooked.
>>39250485If we do call anyone, we should at least warn them that it could be a trap or a wild goose chase or a distraction of some kind.
>>39250703>Last Three Just to check up on them and make sure they're safe
>so, call everyone and tell them that the Goblin's up to something on the Empire's State Building, including Tony Stark?
>>39250822How about while we're telling them what we heard from the Goblin, we ask -their- opinion of whether or not we should also call Stark?
>>39250822Maybe not Stark
>>39250698Yeah but still don't see why everybody is so reluctant to have him involved in anything
>>39250925>>39250931Also he'll fuck the waifus.
>>39250965I don't know about that. MCU Stark seems to be pretty good with Potts.
>>39250822Ehhh.... maybe. If the FF are busy then yeah.
>>39250822Eh, maybe not everyone. Just a few friends that could help, tell Tony that if his plans go through someone should be ready to help the people.
>>39250931But Anon that's MetagamingAlso>Implying we can't prevent him from doing that
You begin calling everyone. You make sure Mary Jane and Felicia are alright. You call up Ghost Rider, Gwen and the Fantastic Four. Informing them about the call and that the Goblin might be up to something. You also ask each of them if you should tell Tony Stark, but each of them merely inform you that while every extra person could help, if Stark is called would be up to you. Flash has just gone to see his sister so it is unlikely that he is available, considering his phone is now turned off.>Call Tony Stark and inform him?>yes>No>call Miss potts, but not stark himself
>>39251082>call miss Potts
>>39251082>>call Miss potts, but not stark himself
>>39251082>Call Ms. Potts
>>39251082>call Miss potts, but not stark himself"Apologies for the short notice, but I'd like to make an appointment with Mr. Stark on the subject of a possible superhero team-up?"
>>39251082>yesYou know what, yeah. He stands a much better shot at making a dent in HYDRA than we do.
>>39251247You call up Miss Pott's phone, waiting for her to answer. When she soon does, her voice is professional yet wary. “This is Pepper Potts, May I ask who is calling and how you got this number?”Making sure your attitude and voice is different. “Yes, sorry for the short notice, but I was calling about making an appointment with Mister Stark about the subject of a possible superhero team-up? Because there's a supervillain on the Empire State building that called the Green Goblin, and he might be up to something. As for how I got this number? Well, its because I'm your friendly neighborhood Spider-man!”Hanging up, you head your way to the Empire State Building. The sky's begun to darken and thunder as you notice that there's something on the top of the Empire State Building. Landing nearby, you see a device that seems to be glowing brightly with a lot of things spinning in the center and there's the sound like a washing machine on a super fast extract cycle coming from it.Behind you, you hear the sound of the Goblin's Glider lowering. Turning, you see him standing there, hands tucked behind his back.>1/2
>>39251348“Spider-man, so glad for you to make it. I actually really am. I've been thinking, you see. You and I are special. We're better than everyone else, right down to our DNA. I actually had a big scheme planned where I'd remove your powers and have an army of Spider-man powered minions to attack the Stark Expo, but honestly my associate was right. It'd be boring. I'd rather live in a... much more interesting world.”You let him talk considering it seems like he's got something, probably the activator to his device, hidden behind his back and would be ready to hit it at any moment.The Green Goblin pulls back his mask to reveal that it is now a green color- like if you rusted copper. “I also really like the name that they've put out there for me. The Green Goblin. I've decided to embrace it. You like?”>The Green Goblin seems to be trying to banter with you, which makes sense considering who he is. Is that device the real one? A fake?

"It suits you. Your old look wasn't that bad, but I feel that if we've already reached the point of using superhuman powers to punch each other, might as well dress in bright colors as well. Side note, does your new doomsday device control the weather, or is this just the world having a sense of dramatic timing?" The Goblin chuckles. “Well, it helps that I checked the weather forecast. Nothing like a fight for the future of the city in the rain!”The machine hums behind you as you stare down the Goblin, trying to buy more time. “Why are you doing this? What do you get out of all of this?”The Goblin seems surprised momentarily. “Before I became the Goblin, I was nobody. Now I'm someone. I love the adrenaline from fighting and scheming against you. It doesn't help that your black knockoff ruined part of my plans by terrorizing the lowest level of crooks, but honestly I'm bored of this world. Politicians run the world, fueled by their greed for money or power. It's boring, old. I'm sick of hearing about it on the news!”He pauses and takes a breath as he calms himself. “But ultimately? Because I can, Spider-man. It is ultimately the reason why anyone does anything. I can. I am capable of doing this and I'm sick of those around me who let what they could have had slip away because they had no aspiration or drive to find out what they were capable of!”The Goblin laughs madly, psychotically. How much of it is an act, you're not sure. You wait for the Goblin to calm himself. “Well, are you done trying to buy time for your amazing friends to get here? Because honestly, it works both ways you know.”A few building away, you see a large black motorcycle covered in blue flames flying from rooftop to rooftop alongside a figure in white and black webslinging.The Green Goblin reveals what's in his hand- a tablet with the images of dozens of other such devices on other rooftops.“So, what's your plan, Spider-man?”>1/2

>>39252112How about we just straight up start to kick the device, but hold back if our spider sense alerts us?Even if it's not always the most useful in a fight, it's made for disarming traps.
>>39252088>>39252112Do we remember the quantity of stuff Eddie said the Goblin stole? Was there even enough raw material for dozens of devices?
>>39252112Can we contact our allies and tell them of this newest development?"So you've scattered devices all over the city and there's no way of knowing which are real, and which are just blenders you glued LEDs onto?

>>39252367Isn't our phone hands-free? I figured we could call and talk to them while we're fighting Goblin, by which we'd do by snatching tablet and moving to smash the device, since we haven't yet encountered anything being able to block our spider-sense.
So, since its kinda quiet I'm gonna go with try to see if breaking the device would set of spider-sense and if it does, beat Goblin until he gives up the answer?
>>39252565I guess? I'm kind of tired, so if there's a clever solution it's not coming to me.
>>392525654chan breaking probably didnt help.
>>39252367>try to break the machine and see if spider-sense warns you.Thank God, I can post again.
Dialing through your contacts, you call Gwen and inform her, without using names, of the Goblin's plan as you move to slam you arm into the machine before stopping before your fist made contact. The feeling of being electrocuted and then an explosion stopped you pretty hard. You call the fantastic four and warn them before turning to the Goblin. “Okay. New plan.”You web him and the tablet over to you, slamming him onto the roof as he groans and struggles to get up. “Alright, you want to dance? Let's Dance!”>roll me 1d20+6

>18 vs 10The Goblin rushes at you with pure brute strength, but as strong as he is, you're faster. Anticipating every blow, you dodge nimbly out of the way. In between each dodge, you manage to get a quick hit in. He's wearing pretty tough gear, but that just means you'll have to target weaker areas like joints.Still, even then he's got pretty inhuman endurance because he doesn't seem to be noticing it. The Green Goblin gets up after you git him as he cracks his neck. “Is that the best you've got? Let's make this more interesting!”Behind you, you see someone in a black and white, hooded, web-covered costume grab the tablet and give you a thumbs up.

>14 vs 20You consider perhaps trying to tear off his armor, but currently he's on the offensive. As the rain begins to truly downpour, you see the Green Goblin pull out a pumpkin bomb and toss it at you.

He gives a cry of pain and gets sent flying back into the side of the building as you clutch as your hand in pain! Okay, you need to get better at throwing a punch.

>>39253384True. And hopefully if we're going back to agility, he won't take us below 10 HP. Though assuming it's based on the difference between our dice and his (with Parker luck as a factor) he may have just dealt 12 damage in this round alone.
>>39253393Oh right. But I don't know about using it now, since I don't think it'll end the fight or even seriously injure GG, and I think we're at low tide for the dice.

>25 vs 7You make yourself move. As he throws a pumpkin bomb, you web it into the air, away from the building as it explode and leap backwards over the impaling glider, turning it into a handstand, that then turns into a kick right to where the torn armor was in the chest, sending him flying backwards.Behind you, the glider's blades retract as the Goblin rolls against the wall of the building.

>SP spent to auto succeed. PL spent to auto succeed.Reaching into the bag, you see an injector gun with two vials in it and two needles. You move to web it from his hands, but he moves out of the way and injects it into himself. But, you're already in motion and have a second web to tear it away.The injector is torn away with a cry of agony as only have of the vials, if that, make their way into him. The green Goblin clutches at his chest and begins convulsing and screaming. Pulling at his mask, he seems to be trying to contact someone. A voice, twisting in agony is crying. “Connors, what did you give me?1 It hurts! You snake bastard!”He screams again, seemingly listening to... Doctor Curt Connors?...That's bad. That's really bad.The machine at the top of the Empire State Building begins to glow red as the Green Goblin tries to get to his feet. You can see his frame shaking as he seems to be staring at you.Unsteadily on his feet, you're not sure what he's capable of. Or what he tried to inject himself with. You'd already informed your allies about Connors. He was probably the one with the detonator.The Goblin raises his arms up into a rough boxing pose as his form shakes. She steps forward, clearly intent on trying to fight you still. Fight you to the bitter end.>agility or strength?

You move to get into range with him, but as you're about to hit him, your Spider-sense cries out for you to get away! Hurrying back in the rain, you feel the heat before he lets lose a wave of heat and pressure. Getting out of it, some of the rain steams and slightly burns at you, but its ignored by your armor.>HP at 17/32The Goblin's armor seems to tear off of his upper body, leaving only the Facial Mask, hood, and gauntlets. From underneath the hood come pointed, scaly ears that are pale with a slight green tinge. His Fingers have pierced through the cloves and are not so much as fingers as claws.From the damaged mask, the eye's lenses are gone, revealing reptilian-shaped purple eyes and the hint of scale. His chest and upper arm are muscled and scaled, with the pale, almost green tinge to them as well. Staring at his hands, you see a terrible, purple flame start to form at his fingertips as the rain sizzles off of it.The lower mouthpiece is taken off, revealing inhumanly sharp teeth in a Goblin's Grin.And in an instance, the flames tinged with madness are gone as the Glider lowers by him. “I'd get out of here, if I were you. That thing's the real deal. I have business to attend to.”His voice is more guttural and lower, almost inhuman.>[ ]Let him go, work on stopping the thing above you>[ ]Stop him from getting away

>21>lowest DC beatenYou let him go as you climb up to the machine. You pull of the panel and get to its inner working and revel in the horror of this design. The original device was a ganali machine- a machine meant to spread a substance through the air to the populace. This device is like making that into a nuke. As it is, this thing will explode and take out a good chunk of the city. That supercharged ganali would get into the air and there's no telling what would come of it.You can't stop the machine. Not entirely, and unless you can stop the machine, you can't disarm it. Not anymore with its revisions. But you can stop the explosion, but not the Ganali device itself. At most only the entire city will be effected by this, but there won't be an explosion.You're tearing apart machinery and rewiring it and reprogramming as fast and accurately as you can considering the rain and the pain you're in. As you finish your modifications, you lean against the machine. Looking up, you see Iron Man rushing towards you in the air, trying to say something...And then the lightning comes. You know it before you see it....And it consumes you and the machine as it activates. And to you, it's like the world's come to an end.>PPQ Issue #71 END>To Be continued>Venom's Hero Token expended- please be patient as we connect you to the next operator.
>>39254335Wha...What happened?And hero token?
>>39254335That's another protagonist gone. How many times does that make?

“Whatever tragedy you think you've just averted, time will find a way to replace it. And trust me the next one? Could be much worse. But , now,what if you could just keep averting tragedies? One after another? Would that averted Karma build up, would it abate? I want to find out because, honestly at this point all that matters is I want to see your face as you fail everything you love and have created,"-?????The lightning hits and the world freezes and space/time cracks. In that instand everything freezes in this world. Except for three.Sitting, looking out at the sky, a figure flickers, looking like a young red haired woman, then a blonde, before returning to the middle aged man with red hair and dead eyes. Pulling out his newspaper, he looks over the numbers written into and the events printed onto it. The man himself is almost nothing more than a wraith.As they start to crumble into ash, the man reaches into himself and pulls out a glowing orange gem as the paper's state begins to revert and wholeness returns to the man. Getting up, he looks at the crack in space and time.“I've spent too much time on this for you to screw over my magnum opus, you bastards.”>1/2
>>39254536….The lightning comes. You know it before you see it.As the lightning hits the machine, to you its like the world's come to an end. Opening your eyes, you see the frozen form of the lighting as the device had come to life. But it was all frozen, like time has stopped moving forward.And in the sky there's a crack, with darkness on the other side, beating light a heartbeat.And then it shatters, like a window. On the other side are countless black wraiths with yellow eyes, hungering for all that lives and loves. And in front of them is a girl with long silver hair in a garish yellow and black outfit. As she looks upon you with her red eyes (silver eyes? Blue eyes? You're not sure how could you know?) she smiles as she takes out an envelope. With a knife in her other hand- when did it get there- when wasn't it there?- she opens it and reads it. With a cheerful, hellish grin, she approaches, walking on air like it were solid ground. She leans in to you.“Mister Parker? You're on the list.”The World inverts colors and the next thing you know if darkness. Darkness and a green chain wrapped around your arm into the abyss.…...“Hey, Flash, what are you doing here? I've been trying Peter while traveling in these dark empty realms, since I think something happened to our world.”His eyes widen behind his costume, formed to protect him from the vacuum-like darkness in this realm he finds himself in. The girl is the one he met before.But her foreaarm is missing and bleeding, not a prosthetic in sight, and she has no horns. Her eyes aren't weary and hopeless, but mirthful, like meeting an old friend again. Her skin is pale and the only thing keeping her from bleeding out is a chain wrapped around her stump like a tourniquet.He approaches her carefully and cautiously. “Mephispheles?”The girl's eyes narrow in confusion. “What? Don't be silly, Flash. It's me, Stella. ...Peter's sister?”
Anyway have a good night folks!
>>39254616Thanks for running.
>>39254616I dont know what just happened but I'm pretty sure I don't like it.Thanks for the thread though.

>>39254700Like I don't know, I was feeling hopeful that Goblin seemed to be taking himself out, But I should have known better than to ignore the title of the thread. Now we're dealing with some abstract meta crossover nonsense. Which is my least favorite aspect of the quest.
>>39254768just a comment here because I was checking back in before sleeping.This will not effect PPQ. When issue #72 starts up, the canon will be the same as when I said PPQ Issue #71 End.If you want to read the crossover stuff, have fun. If you don't, don't.
I'm at a loss for what's going on. To .moe!
Can we at least be happy and excited Stella is back?Even if the situation is disarming.
