If you've played Bloodborne, you will have a good idea what this will be about. But this has girls and harems and shits.>You're the protagonist of an apocalyptic world, where you need balls and gals to thrive and survive, as you pick up bigass guns, hot chicks and superpowers along the way. You'll need them, because all kinds of jank bullshit monsters are coming for you.(cont.)
You run towards Akira, the masked maid, and you aim for the back of her her head with your bat, aiming to knock her out. However, without flinching and without even looking, she ducked out of the way, much to your surprise."Third Law Protocols activated." she then announced, and turned towards you, putting herself into a martial stance."Calculating best method to eliminate threat.""Calculation complete. Hack commencing."Suddenly, you could feel yourself loosing contact with reality. You saw the runes for your blast spell and you started to go in deeper into the place your mind went whenDiving.Like when you performed spell retrievals. She was forcing that state into you - you could see a very short glimpse of her within your inner, infinite book - The Nightmare, pulling you further into it.Then you snapped out, as you felt Kanna tug on you, away from Akira, who was still in that stance."C'mon, it's not time for that!" she yelled."H-hacking failed." she announced, apparently... Sad."Searching for options that don't involve harming another robot." she added. "Search returned zero results."She shook her head ever so slightly. "I-it must be an error. Performing search again.""I think she doesn't actually want to kill you." Kanna pointed out.Then, Akira straightened up. "Solution found. Eliminate Kanna Hashimoto.">Write in
>>39975265Stand between them "Input Akira Shut down" That doesn't work bolt her.
>>39975234Your twitter link goes to the wrong page.
>>39975337>https://twitter.com/CheeseCakeQMHuh? How so?
>>39975351It goes to the archived episode 6, not the current one.
>>39975337Woops. I see you meant the in-twitter link. Corrected, thanks.
>>39975310Seconding this, tell Kanna to get away from her as well
"Akira!" you tell her. "Input: Shutdown.""Access Denied. Input restricted to Mr. Oshiro" she replies, as she dashes towards the smaller girl. You aim your aching hand at her, and you focus on the rune, but as you do, you see Akira in a goalkeeper-like stance instead, as if she was trying to block you from doing it.Then, you return to your vision of real life, seeing real Akira in that same goalkeeper stance."Please do not interfere" she says."Kanna." you say. "Run. RUN.""Run WHERE?" she says. "Further in here, there are wolves. The principal is outside. RUN. WHERE?"
>>39975578... shit, just hold no to me. If I can keep in her way I think you should be safe and your powers can keep her from 'hacking' me. Hopefully this dam shield will hold while I try to hit with the bat.
>>399755782nd floor and out of the window.
>>39975578I distract her, you impale her on something, can't heal if there's something in the way. Also see if you can remove that mask.
>>39975699I think knocking her out or disabling her would be the better option. Also, would rather NOT remove the mask. I don't want to risk the SAN loss.

You ALL miss your attacks, and spend too much effort in playing it defensively for the next few attacks. Akira evades skillfully, and you manage to put yourself between them to effectively protect Kanna - Akira won't attack you.From her fighting style you notice that he isnt relying on sight at all, managing to evade and attack without needing to visually focus on her targets.Then, right then, the Principal's voice boomed in."AKIRA, INPUT: RETURN.">Write in
>>39975979Head back beat the shit out of the principal.
>>39975979See if we can get a visual on the situation before we make a decision.
>>39975979To bad we can't quickly open a locker and shut her in.... Shield wall just try and slow her down as much as possible.
>>39975979Let's try tripping her up and/or slowing her down in general.
You do all you can to slow her down, but she's simply much too faster than you to really make a difference. You're in armor and a shield and wearing a backpack - she is just in a maid suit and a mask, so she sidestepped herself out of your way, and managed to reach the door and outside in a fleeing manner.You follow her outside, reaching the principal and Mary.(gonna roll Mary's state)
Rolled 68, 23, 40 = 131 (3d100)R oll 3, choose two lowest.1-29-Nothing30-64-Heavy fist-sized bruise in arm area65-69-Bones in hand reduced to shattered pieces70-74-Bones in forearm+hand reduced to shattered pieces75-79-Bones in arm reduced to shattered pieces80-84-Lose 1d5 Fingers 85-89-Total hand mutilation90-94-Total forearm+hand mutilation95-100-Total arm mutilation.
So the principal is a total wimp then and robot maid is the real power?
Mary is still fighting the Principal, with some blood dripping off her arms, from large fist-sized bruises. However, the Principal seemed to have a full, buldging belly again, like last time."HIYA-HIYA!" the Principal doublepunched her, missing one but hitting her shoulder with the other. He seemed to be aiming for her arms intentionally."Ah, Akira, you're back. Input: Reattatch!""He... Has aten another one" Mary tells you, quite fatigued.>Write in
>>39976573He was fighting with that full stomach.
>>39976630He's eating student's souls Mary? Fuck it Blast him hard Aim for vital points like stomach, head and heart. Kanna Buy me a few seconds.
>>39976630"Have you tried hitting him in the stomach or diaphragm? That might take the edge off of his appetite."
>>39976630... alright we need to switch out and let her heal. We are going to have to blast the shit out of the out side stomach cord or meat thing.
"Is he eating their...Souls?" you ask Mary."No. He seems to have my powers, and he's building up in strength - I think he has been doing it ever since he was upstairs. Before he could hardly walk. But look at him now." she answers.Akira thrusted the cord back into the Principal's nape, and immediately after, he burst out steam, and became normal again, as if the performed an instant digestion."...Also, he can't use his power consciously. Just like me." Mary continued. "Unless he has that thing."You nod and immediately aim for a vital point - his stomach, and prepared to blast.As you mentally drew out the rune, you saw Akira in there too again, in your inner mental world, but this time, she remained still. She could've stopped you, but chose to not do anything. For some reason.(Roll 1d100s guys, best of 2, because that's out blast level)I'm rolling Principal's defense against that: best of a 5d100Mary prepared to charge in again, but Kanna held her back, and stabbed her wounds."Akira, Input: Assist!" the Principal yelled."Be more specific please." she replied."Forget it!" he said, as the blast was incoming.

Rolled 12, 92, 29, 27, 89 = 249 (5d100)He evaded the blast with a ample margin, and then went on the offensive against you, charging in and preparing for a strike.But then, you felt a push - a mental nudge in a direction. It was Akira.And then you realized it. Your knowledge of Magic told you the answer. Akira was in the Nightmare - that horrible infinite well of all knowledge, from where you drew spells, and outside of it at the same time.She was sleepwalking.That was why she was so perceptive - she couldve used the knowledge in the Nightmare to predict and percieve superhumanly, by observing her own surroundings.>Roll 1d100 to evade, best of two (You+nudge).
