The rain spatters on your Mom's car as you glide down the road. You've never liked funerals, but you guess that's pretty normal. Especially when it's you dad's. You don't even know how it happened, just a body in an alley. Neither Mom or you have spoke a word on the ride, but finally she breaks the silence."Honey, we're here." she says, you must have been too absorbed in your thoughts to recognize the iron gates approaching you.Entering the austere gates to the Comet City Graveyard, a tall well-dressed man in a black suit approaches you and your mom."Hello,John Salvos, I'm sorry for your loss." He says, "We met a bit ago, but I never talked to your son, what's your name?"> "I'm (Write-in)."> Say nothing (Random)
>>40199553> "I'm Thomas Cairns
>>40199553> "I'm Alyssa."

>>40199553>I'm Dick Zuckerman
>>40199553>"I'm Salvos John"
"I'm Thomas Cairns" You say"Nice to meet you Thomas, I was a co-worker of your father. He was a good man and it's terrible what happened to him"You remember when your dad gave you an old junker for your 18th birthday this year, he saved for weeks from an worked overtime at work crunching numbers."Yeah, it is" you say without thinking. The priest takes to the podium and starts the ceremony, so you go to take your seat.A few days later...God, are you happy that all the paperwork is done. You just want to read the will and get this experience out of your mind. After all, the last stage of grief is denial, wait, no, you're forgetting something. Eh, whatever."...And to my son, I bequeath my storage unit by the docks and all of its contents, as well as my life insurance policy of 30,000 dollars."Woah, shit you spaced out again but did that lawyer just say you got money. And some kind of storage unit but screw that, MONEY! You always loved your dad but you never thought he had life insurance. After all, he was an accountant.After all the other assets are divvied up you...>Check out that Storage unit>Spend the money (on what?)>Go Home, sleep, you're tired

>>40199806>>Check out that Storage unit
You decide that spending the money right away is probably a bad idea, especially considering you are about to graduate, so you get in your car and drive to the docks. Checking the number on the key you were given with the numbers on the units, you eventually find it. Opening the heavy metal doors you find...>A fully functioning lab (Scientist route)>A pod and some computers (Supersoldier route)>A bunch of mounted heads, weapons and other things (Hunter route)>Just a spandex suit and some trinkets (Superpower route)

>>40200243I wanted that too, but meh, Captain Ohio is fun too
>>40200271Why not Amurrikann Assassin Quest? We can blow up Iranian centrifuges and assassinate that pudgy fuck in North Korea
Well, I'll do a second vote because more people showed up. I'll also explain a bit more.>Scientist: be it Tony Stark, Hank Pym, or Dr. Doom, all are viable in this route>Supersoldier: What it says on the tin>Hunter: think Kraven with more funding>Superpower: any supepower from telekinesis to paper controlPost ONLY the name of the route you want.

>>40200449Just don't count the ones that aren't in correct format. Their fault for not doing as asked, or people trying to vote twice or so.

HeyHey guysCan we get a superpower we can use for science
>>40200533Ah dang, didn't get a chance to vote for supersoldier.>>40200566Nothing keeping us from having badass super powers that give us something akin to those.
>>40200543>tfw Supersoldier won without any samefagging>now Superpowers won with the poster count doublingNow, I won't accuse anyone of samefagging. But hey.
>>40200576>Write in a superhero/villain nameThere was none. He was off the radar, a man without a name or persona.> and powerPsionics. He could read minds, control them, move things with his mind and even tell the future with it.
>>40200591It was by one vote, so meh. Honestly, you could still basically be a Supersoldier
>>40200576>Anathema>Ability to place curses, cast spells, dark rituals, necromancy and good stuff like that.

>>40200602A good idea, but must have SOME public persona, otherwise how would you know it was him?
>>40200621That completely eliminates the point of differentiating, though. And if that is the case, why bother with a choice like this at all?Just stick to with the choices being exclusive.
>>40200661>otherwise how would you know it was him?His records which tied him to several events.
>>40200602Literally the least flashy, least superheroic option, with the most villainy powerNo

>>40200628Won by one vote, writing
>>40200743Oh, in that case>>40200628I vote that
>>40200743I think it's a bit more than that. The mention of hyper mind means we could make any machine-related calculation near instantly. Probably would let us build complex shit really quickly
>>40200801Well that goes into enhanced intelligence, I mean you have the computational power of a super computer and the ability to deeply understand machines frlm the other one, so yeah you can build.stuffCho is OP
The Red Rider... what, you even saw him once. A man on a souped up bike of some kind wearing a red suit and a mask. But if he's your dad, why aren't you like him, unless.

>>40200889>Little bit of everything: Jack of all trades
>>40200889>Little bit of everything: Jack of all trades>>40200903Gotta agree there, diversifying is good, too narrow and we get countered easily
>>40200889>>Cyber: Can crack digital electronics with ease
>>40200889>Analysis: takes in all outcomes and accounts for themDepending on how broke this is, Number Man/Dinah here we come!
>>40200889>little bit of everythingAnalysis is too broken and would be boring for OP to write
>>40200985Not really, Analytical is Mastermind, No physical applications.
>>40200889>>Little bit of everything: Jack of all trades
>>40201007So pure math/intelligence with no tech controlling?
>>40201029You can do it, but analytical uses have an advantage.
WritingJack of all trades
>>40201050So can we do the whole predicting vectors and paths of projectiles to perfectly lodge debris into people or things to shut them down?
>>40201089If you ask me, that is as much super reflexes as it is super analysis.Don't think we have Spoodermen tier reflexes.

>Two Months later...You did it, you finally walked out those doors at Comet City High and into the real world. You saved that money and decided to make more with your powers, fixing cars is easy when you can ask them what's wrong. It turns out that your dad's suit was nothing but just that, a suit. But it turns out, those trinkets were various electronic tools, making them rather compliant to your use.>>40201360AUTOMATIC SUCCESS, was gonna ask for a roll for success in after-school plans.>College>Mechanic would be easy>Accountant?>Write-in

>>40201605>MIT-expyWe got the grades, now it's time to BTFO some nerds
>>40201674You didn't find anything important on those computers, just different schematics that you saved to a hard drive
Whats good about mit over comet? Or vise versa?
>>40201692And on Salvos? What did we find about him?
>>40201741Comet U must be a major city or our home city's U. Mit Expy would prob take us away from home but is very tech focused and amazing?
You worked really hard through High School with a 3.5 GPA, nothing outstanding. But what happened in that storage unit changed that. You just knew more. You ended up acing all of your exams and getting your GPA up to a 3.75. Not bad for two months. And you just got accepted to the Central Cosmopolis Institute. You are packing your things, the tools the hard drive, your dad's suit just in case, When all of a sudden, the doorbell rings. Mom opens up the door and you hear from downstairs."How nice to see you Mr. Salvos!"SUPERHUMAN LEGACY QUEST ENDso, first time QMing, how'd I do?>Questions?>Comments?>Suggestions?
>>40201836Bretty gud.Keep up the voting rules and you will d9 well.
>>40201833Correct, Comet City is your home>>40201752As I said, nothing at all on the computers but schematics.
>>40201836>Questions:When are you running again? Do you have twitter?>Comments:I liked it all so far, and it's a bit of a refresher on what quests had been heading on>SuggestionsMaybe just thread length?
>>40201852Not on the computers, man. I assume in that two months we had some time to at least google the guy, if not do a more thorough background check.
>>40201836Pretty okay, maybe try to run longer if you can. Generally four hours is considered a minimum for thread length.Maybe add a little more detail in your post. Some grammar/punctuation issues you might want to work on. No major complaints though.
>>40201894Why would you google him, he was one of the many people at your dad's funeral? He has done nothing that would pique suspicion.
>>40201922He said he was a co-worker of dad's.I think at this point we can figure out our dad didn't do all we thought he did.
>>40201877I will try to run when I have time, Twitter is @xLostCowboyx. Sorry about thread length, I thought my day was free, but it apparently wasn't.
>>40201943You didn't bring it up in the timeskip, so I'm sorry. Next thread you will probably get answers on it though.
>>40201836The short updates seem like your just making stuff up as it goes. If that isn't the case then it makes it lack atmosphere, and gives us little to go off of. Not to mention the cardinal sin of char gen took up most of your time.
>>40202044Yeah, had a plan, but it got all muddled up. And yeah char gen sucks, I know that now, but at least it's done.
