Your name is Thomas Cairn, and you have no clue what you jumped into. Your dad was an infamous superhero known as The Red Rider, and he showed up dead in an alley about three months ago.When you were checking out a storage unit you inherited from him, everything changed. You gained his powers, a brain able to calculate faster than light, and an uncanny affinity for machinery.Using your powers, you were easily able to get into the world's top engineering college, Central Cosmopolis Institute. But just as you were ready to leave everything behind in your hometown, Comet City, and move on, one of your dad's "co-workers" stopped by. He had an envelope from your dad, inside was the key to a safehouse in Cosmopolis, and a letter from The Red Rider.The letter told you many things, including the existence of the murderer, Menace, a supervillain with unknown abilities. It also led you to you dad's lab/safehouse, where you passed copies of his notes on Menace to Mr. Salvos. Mr. Salvos has appeared again, this time disguised as a groupie for the band SilverStreak.Archived Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Superhuman%20LegacyPastebinsTech Notes: http://pastebin.com/9uxS0teLPlot Point Notes: http://pastebin.com/q8wm3Lr3MC Notes: http://pastebin.com/aNFFXTCU"Hello, and welcome to backstage, sorry about the mess, we 're getting everything set up."

Slow day, Writing
If you didn't stick around after the last thread the plan for our A.I. R.O.B. is to have him study economics so we can have him play the stock-market and get us rich.
"So when is everything going to be set up?" You won't rat him out just yet, but you KNOW that this is not coincidence. Mr. Salvos has to be a Super, and it's either Wrench or Swordsman, you narrowed it down 2 weeks ago."Pretty soon, the show starts in about an hour, but these lights are giving us problems, they aren't syncing with the computer that controls the timing. Don't worry, we'll have it done in time for the show." He seems as if he knows something you don't, and he seems kind of smug about it. He can only be here to, well, guess the rumors about SilverStreak are true. There has to be a Super he's helping, but why?Mr. Salvos starts leading around an impromptu tour of backstage, you don't really pay attention, it really doesn't matter. There are a few Supers who use sonic abilities. Namely Boombox, Screamo, and Jetstreak, but the last one has more than just those powers. If a Super is in a band, he probably has sonic powers, it's ironic like that."...and that concludes the tour, feel free to watch the concert back here on the screen over there, when they're done playing, you might even meet SilverStreak." Wow, actually getting to meet SilverStreak, that's pretty cool, and you can probably tell who's the super by cross-referencing body types.Who should I sit next to?CHOOSE TWO>Jen>Harry>Monica>Jeana>Stella>???
I fixed the Tech Point issue through the inclusion of a new perk for those wondering.
>>40387213>Jen>Harryi dont remember who any of these people are besides that they are our friends
>>40387213>???>Jen(m)and the HologramsBut really, mind to describe them to us again? They didn't get much "screen" time.Also nice to know you did, will check out now

>>40387251In the Paste-bin for the MC my friend.>>40387256Monica is the only one I described in much detail, she's short and blonde, but I will describe whoever you sit next to.
>>40387263Secondary characters always get fucked when it comes to this. Get hype for cuckbowl 2015
>>40387277Yeah, lets' give Harry the chance to sit with his girl, we'll channel our inner Stark into the others.
>SCIENCE, BITCH!: Permanently gain 10 Instability (but not Innovation) to increase Tech Points gained per thread by one.ohh damn that a nice perk>>40387277also lets thread that new element we made you said it produces 3x the energy of the hoverdam when is actually 5x
>>40387310I went by maximum capacity, not average capacity. But I probably did get it wrong, just be content to know that it's really fucking powerful.

You take a seat in between Jen and Jeana and start talking with them about the concert, but it seems you are a little distracted by the fact that Mr. Salvos is SITTING FIVE FEET AWAY FROM YOU, why did you think that loudly? You're tweaking out man, maybe science is addictive, at least you're kind of keeping the conversation, but they can tell you're distracted."What's wrong Thomas? You feeling okay?" Jen seems rather concerned, is that good or bad? She is twirling her brown hair around her finger, at least your first impression was good so they don't think you are always this way."Yeah, just thinking about some stuff, I'm sorry." Wow, you really are on autopilot, you just apologized for thinking."What are you thinking about?" Jeana is trying to figure out something, she always has this look in her eyes when she tries to figure out a problem. It's kind of intimidating, she looks a bit like that chick from the Wendy's commercials, so it's a bit creepy too.You definitely don't want to tell them about Mr. Salvos, but you are tired of lying, it hurts to lie to people a lot. Why are you lying about your powers again? Ah yes, Superhero Movies, wait no fuck, you thought you lost that train of thought back home. Maybe you should call Mom, that always helps."Goddammit, does he do this every time you ask a question?" Jeana sighs.>"I just created nanomachines in the lab" (Pull jar out of backpack)>"Who the Super in SilverStreak could be.">"How beautiful you are." (TRY TRY AGAIN)>"Uh, you too.">Write-in

"Oh, just thinking about beautiful mind, and that train of thought led to other beautiful things." She blushed, you did it, YEAH, GODDAMMIT MORE YELLING, fuck calm down. Hooray, maybe she has a thing for flatterers, or you're just that cool. Probably the former."Why were you thinking about beautiful mind?" Jen seems a little confused by what just happened, and you need to cover this a bit. So you show everyone the video."Fuck man this shit cray!" Everyone seems to be laughing at the guy who took the video's vocabulary choices. But you look at the views again and the number is 750,000 views. You must be a small celebrity now, maybe there will be job offers later."How did you do that man!?" Harry says in-between laughs, he is turning red about now."Yeah, how did you do that?! That's like the most confusing class at the school!" Monica seems a bit less tickled by the video, but she's still smiling.Jeana is a shade of scarlet you didn't think possible right now, between the blushing and the laughing. Maybe you'll score, that would be nice, you were a hopeless virgin in high school, but nobody in Cosmopolis knows that. HELL YEAH, NO FUCK STOP YELLING, SHIT!Monica just sighs again.>"Sorry, I'm kind of tired, what was the question again?">"I just got lucky, that equation was something I use in Nanorobotics.">"I'm a smart man">"I have mind powers, BOW BEFORE ME!">Write-in

"I just got lucky, I use that equation a lot in Nanorobotics." Nice save, you did it, now you are the cool guy! GODDAMMIT, NOW IT'S BACK TO SARCASM! Now yelling again."LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES AND RECORDING DEVICES BEFORE-" All of a sudden the microphone gets caught in a massive feedback loop, and then it stops. "GOOOOOOOOOD EVENING COSMOPOLIS, I HAVE TAKEN OVER THIS FREQUENCY TO ASSURE YOU THAT SO LONG AS YOU COOPERATE, YOU WILL GO HOME SAFE TONIGHT. I AM BOOMBOX, AND I'M A LITTLE STRAPPED FOR CASH. SO PUT YOUR WALLET ON THE FLOOR AND GO HOME OR I WILL BLOW YOUR EARDRUMS OUT!"Over all the screaming outside, you notice that Mr. Salvos is gone. "AHAHAHAHAHA, WAIT, WHO ARE YOU? AHHH-", the voice is cut off as a crash echos around the stage, on the screen, you see a man in a suit of armor beating on a large man in a stereotypical rapper outfit. Swordsman and Boombox..."Come on, let's get out of here!" Harry is no longer laughing and seems rather scared.>"I have to find the groupie who led us around, I'll catch up" (Help Swordsman)>"Let's go.">"I wanna see this!">Write-in

>>40388510If he teams up with the red rider, yeah
>>40388539So we're putting the actuators around us like a suit?Or did we bring pa's old suit?What colour are the actuators?
"You go ahead, I need to get that groupie out of here, I'll catch up!" That answers the question of who Mr. Salvos is, now you should probably help. You're not shocked when Boombox blasts Swordsman off him, that is his power after all,"Your funeral man!" Harry and the girls all run out the back exit. Now you have breathing room, you take out your jar of Micro-Actuators and open it up. What good press will you get when your invention helps stop a Supervillain, you are practically drooling over the thought of more money. You sneak your way to right behind the curtain and peek out.Swordsman has drawn a massive greatsword, at least taller than you, and is swinging it at Boombox, who is blasting the ground to dodge the swings. Then Boombox blasts the sword away and gets into a wide stance, by now your Micro-actuators are scattered among the debris rather nicely so as not to be noticed."I GROW BORED OF THIS BATTLE, I END THIS NOW!" He seems to be charging a large boom, and he doesn't have an inside voice.Wait...Spread out Actuators...Wide stance...Not paying attention...Should you?>HELL YEAH, NANITE NUT PUNCH>No, have a few climb him and constrict around his neck to choke him, he needs to be quiet>Wrap his legs with them and constrict them to break his legs.>Write-in

Oh yeah, golden opportunities don't come often, time to do this."I WILL KI-" The Actuators are already bunched up under his legs and it seems he just noticed. "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..." You think he just went up at least 3 octaves, oh right, these are really well-made, total force exertion on average is 50 pounds. Ouch...Boombox is on the ground writhing in pain, so you slip an actuator into his mouth, maybe that will do... something? You didn't quite think that much into it. In an instant Swordsman is upon him, cuffing him, then gagging him so he can't use his powers. He isn't putting up much resistance, just crying on the floor. Note to self, Nanite Nut Punch hurts, a lot."Thank you citizen, when you have time, meet me at this address." All of a sudden he jumps into the distance. Yeah, that slip of paper he dropped has an address, but should you go now? That entire fight was recorded, and you were the only one still here, maybe you should erase that. No, wait, this is good publicity for the Micro-Actuators, you could take credit for what you did.>Stay, take the glory and fame>Get rid of that footage, then leave>Write-in

I'd personally be up for being the public hero. Its' harder for someone to make us simply 'disappear' when everyone has their eyes on us.
>>40389238i know i wouldalso poor boombox i pity him.
This is an important decision and it seems there is some dissent.So Final VoteOnly post the number and link this post1-take it public2-NO EVIDENCE
>>40389271no, not really. A million ways to kill someone on "accident", and everyone knows that supers have enemies. Being an anon is better, you need a certain powerbase untill you can go public, otherwise you're just being an easier target
>>40389375It also exposes your family and friends to the media, in addition it enables your enemies to some pretty damned cruel extortions. Publicity is not a good idea.
think of our mother she will be in danger if we go public now
>>40389428Right we need to get rich first and get powerful enough to protect our friends and family before we go public. But we should go public, with these powers we can make huge advances in technology and actually improve the quality of life for people across the world.
Shadows it isLunch, then writing
>>40389357Look, if we had a polished product and full suit of weaponry and armor I would go public, but we're not even CLOSE to being ready for the public.If we're Tony Stark, we don't even have the original Iron Man suit, we only have a single functional repulsor Ray.
>>403894513 2's vs 2 1's, looks like we're not exposing ourselves just yet. Good thing we decided not to give our enemies ample opportunity to end us before we could even begin.
>>40389464We can make huge advances in technology while still not going public, we just need to be careful that the super hero doesn't get too connected with the advancements so that norms, supers and villains know it's us through inference
>>40389464duhtruthfully i want to pull a Tony Stark when we are ready.
>>40389557Keyword being "when we are ready." :)
>>40389551I'm not certain that would be possible. From what I can gather we are up there with Stark, Banner and Pym as far as scientific genius goes. Hell, we did that equation up on the board and one of the first guesses was for the Red Rider. We can do so much more good for the world by taking up the mantel publicly than trying what our dad did with the cover story of being an accountant.
>>40389615why do you think i put it in there.
>>40389679This might be true but I would feel better about Elon Musking the world if we also have a nanosuit on under our clothes. Let's give us some time to really develop a good set of powerful tools before we start drawing public attention.
>>40389745I could not agree with you more there, we need to get on top of crafting though I am honestly not sure how much longer we can keep it under wraps, the instability might out us before we're ready if we're not careful.
>>40389971Also a very good point. We can't hope to run a successful business until we can get the instability under control.
>>40389971>>40390006our AI that we are going to build can help with the business and we did state we went beautiful mind and the guy it was based on did have a few brake downs
No, that might put Mom in danger, so you quickly gather your Actuators into their jar then run to the recording setup and will it to unlock. Surprisingly, it bends to your command and opens, you must be getting better at this. Anyways, you find the file from tonight and delete it, scrubbing all traces from the system of your involvement. It doesn't take long before you run out to your friends."Dude, did you find him? Harry seems awfully concerned, probably trying to look good in front of Monica."Yeah, he already left and by the time I found him, Swordsman had already won." Another cunning lie from rusemaster general, it's happening again. Focus."Well, that was a bust, didn't even get to see SilverStreak." Stella seems really upset about that, but she always sounds that way."At least we got out okay, let's go, I don't want to stay here." Monica starts walking for her car."Well we carpooled so..."

"Yeah we should." Don't panic. Don't panic. You're cool right, yeah? No. Shit now you're talking to yourself.She turns that shade of red again, you thought redhead was referring to hair. "Y-yes, we should." Wait, is she nervous too? This is weird, You should go back to the lab, stuff makes sense there. Except when you almost blow up the city, but that only happened once."Jeana, we're leaving, hurry up!" Stella is getting impatient, but she does that a lot. Honestly she's kind of bossy, but whatever."Seeya later Tom." Jeana blurts it out and runs to the car.Well, that went better than expected, at least you think she's interested, maybe you could call her tomorrow, but you have to get home first. You don't even remember getting in your car, but you make it home before you know what happened. It's about 11PM, and Harry was going to walk from the Girl's dorm when he's done with... things.

I think that if we start our foundation (business, factories, etc) now before we've established a presence we can more easily excuse our success instead of suddenly being Mr. Business Man after graduation.
>>40390595Agreed, AI should be top priority and have a way where we can communicate with him easily for on the spot advice. What do Anon's think about branching into medical technology as well, There are a number of ways we can improve the bodies functions although we would need to see if we can fit in some bio and chem classes as well before just jumping in

>>40390830>>40390805That takes a Tech Point, all in due time.
>>40390673There is no Video. The Video is deleted. No proof of nanotech is linked to us.Also, A.I. +own company is no deterrent when trying to get hired by another company. A.I. Is essential for the business plan to show we're business minded, since it will basicly be the tool we use to solidify our business presence. The A.I. will not hinder us in developing a plan, nor will it stop us from demonstrating to any potential employers that we're not business minded.That said, going the route of employee might not even be what we want to go, we could go full stark and get our patents, sell our ideas and go the entrepreneur route instead
>>40390764Sounds good, working on making our car better.and everything else.
>>40390667Med. tech? Yes please. This can help us (and by extension, others) in so many different ways. Let's cure cancer, gaise :)

Rolled 27 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>40390889We gotta learn them simple mechanics
Rolled 69, 23 + 10 = 102 (2d100 + 10)>>40390889
Rolled 48 - 10 (1d100 - 10)>>40390889
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>40390889
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>40390889
>>40390803That sounds excellent, I was actually thinking of taking the nano actuators and making them smaller and crafting an Immune System 2.0, programmable for the diseases themselves and possibly able to take on cancerous cells at the same time
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>40390889
To subract a modifier you have to use +-
>>40390922>>40390930>>40390921>>40390919>>40390905>>40390889It seems we make the car slightly less shit despite being able to build nanomachines and create an AI, meanwhile our charisma is being bad, damn you instabilityThankfully Jeana seems to also be awkward.
Rolled 50 (1d100)okay then, I just took the first 3 for modification and the next three for charisma. Checking more stuff.
Stark is not strong today, but it is acceptable.Writing
>>40390934Basically what we have now could replicate someone's hand or foot no problem, once we have some kind of miniature computer that would respond to a non-super individual.Also there would be obvious military applications for a robot that could become a brick and selfheal from damage, but our MC seems less interested in doing dark side type stuff
>>40390980can you next time call for 1 roll take those three then make another post calling for the other roll cause this is getting a little confusing.
>>40390980Would we be able to meditate during the week?at least for one hour?new perk and our instability is still at 25 and all.
>>40391049The lock just got down (it only had 9 hours left)so we get the full effect of the perk over that set amount of time (one per day no?).We're back to normal.
>>40390955we did pretty well for the low roll.considering it is a low roll, we got a 23 - 10makes it 13, not a crit but not bad, and not far from a crit success.
>>40390984I agree there, we shouldn't get into the military contracts for weapon systems because of the way they can be abused even with ignoring the weapons systems though the military would fall over themselves if we can functionally replace limbs
>>40391129We could probably always include a failsafe where if the computer control system was being backers of whatever the actuators can shred themselves into worthless micro scrap though. Probably wouldn't prevent reverse engineering for very long but it might slow things down
>>40391237True, a very well hidden backdoor for us would be necessary for any of our inventions
>>40391290man the stark paranoia is strong this thread
>Instability reduced to 5>Innovation reduced to 15>Innovation get, Nano-LimbYou spend most of your time at school coasting, just kind of thinking of ideas for stuff to build, including a limb made of Micro-Actuators, just needs to integrate with the body's nervous system somehow. Nobody seems to notice, so you get through the week just fine. You spend most of your time working on your car, finding a way to make it run on a condensed Potential Generator, which DOES WORK but took a bit more time to make. It still looks like a junker, but now it doesn't need fuel and is a lot faster. You also manage to set up and go to a date with Jeana at a jazz club, probably not a good idea considering the band was too loud to let you talk much, but she seemed to have fun when you started playing impromptu charades. You decided to call your Mom, it was mostly just her confirming that you're okay, but she says that you are going to Grandpa's for Christmas this year.Friday afternoon, you decided to check out that address Swordsman gave you. It is, once again, in the inner city. What is it with Supers and this place, are they a part of a gang? Alone with your thoughts, you make your way to 616 Mulberry Circle and find another ratty house. Inside is a single pod containing the Swordsman's suit.His base.>Superhuman Legacy Quest END>You got one Tech Point for existing, check your Tech privilege!>You got a Plot Point for punching a Supervillain in the nuts!>You suck at this whole dating thing, but it's okay because you both suck.>Plot Points next post

>>40391367Self-improvement to Charisma? Kind of makes sense in context and I am a bit wary of the Stark power up
>>40391367>>SCIENCE, BITCH!: Permanently gain 10 Instability (but not Innovation) to increase Tech Points gained per thread by one.
>>40391367>Stark's Blessing: Gain a permanent plus 10 to charisma, Alcohol now increases Innovation (but not Instability), but when it wears off, Instability and Innovation switch.>>40391419I'd be okay with that, but imagine that coupled with Starks...
>>40391419Agreed. And we still haven't shown any in-content affinity towards alcohol.
>>40391448His first time will be fun then
>>40391367>SCIENCE, BITCH!: Permanently gain 10 Instability (but not Innovation) to increase Tech Points gained per thread by one.Twice as much science? Definitely.
>>40391419I'd be fine with that, we're going to be needing charisma when we're negotiating what are salary will be or price for the sale of an invention or patent.a shit ton of royalties
>>40391448Well we were an awkward kid in high school who is now vaguely charismatic and set to be the king of the castle at college. We are bound to run into it now and to be honest I am surprised we haven't. Plus it makes more sense to me to have this first and then discover the bonus when we do drink.

>>40391419its a double edged sword it could be great perk but it does have a strong draw back

>>40391590i still ask do we have to be a drunk like stark or can we be a causal drink like a beer or scotch to go with dinner
What have we done with ron, we have the hyper-processors and R.O.N we need to build Ron.

>>40391729When do you plan to run?
>>40391729so what's Cairnsium Synthesis?
the next perk we get is SCIENCE BITCH for obvious reasons.>>40391729>It all depends on a few factors to be determined laterhopefully we dont have to roll for it
>>40391367What does ">Dreamer: allows the use of the action "Innovate!" once per day (in addition to other rolls called for by QM)." do?Innovate? please explain :)
>>40391754Next Tuesday, probably going to be hitting a rhythm where I do Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I post one hour alerts on twitter>>40391763Synthesizing Cairnsium>>40391765You get to say when you want to roll for Innovation
>>40391763being able to make more Cairnsium
>>40391764That'd make us have at least 15% chance of amazing breakdown, forever.
>>40391798so it's basicly "i wanna create this cool thing!" *rolls innovate*?
>>40391833we've got a 5% chance now?hmm, might want to avoid going down that route, maybe we should be satisfied with Self-improvement
>>40391850Basically, you also get to set a goal for what you want as an idea.
>>40391729>>Self-improvement: Choose a stat to give a plus 5 to.Charisma: No modsKnowledge: No modsStrength: No modsGuts: No modsI think a good investment into knowledge would help most of our project short and long term. With out any draw backs like Science bitch would.
>>40391833ya but thats 2 tech points every thread instead of 1
>>40391886If you use stark's while having Science Bitch you arrive at a 1/4 of breakdown.If you go any further than that you might arrive at a nice level of "heads or tails: you're now crazy"
>>40391883I agree, knowledge would be a good thing to increase, especially considering the synergy with our powers
>>40391909at least we've got the meditation to help us keep it at decent levels, don't forget our meditation!
>>40391909I don't particularly mind that direction though, interesting story to play out where we perfectly represent the dual nature of science. Course that drawback does explain why our dad went the accountant route, just about the only chance at having a normal life.
>>40391909you still have to reach 100 in instability befor a brake down and we still have meditation to calm us down
>>40391909Break-downs aren't that terrible.>>40391965Break-downs are a random chance that can occur while trying to calm down improperly or spending too long under stress.
>>40391965"Instability is the percentile chance that you will break down, while Innovation is the percentile chance that you will create something interesting in the process of research.">>40391984So you say, Cowboy, so you say
>>40391984would joining a gym and getting a fitness routine down help relive stress
>>40391955I still think we should go "slightly safer but still going further", just not "full cray".Sure the extra TP is nice, but the 15/100 chance doesn't seem as delicious
>>40392011Maybe it'd increase Strength
>>40392003If you take Pym Power, that's when Break-downs are truly terrifying>>40392011Yes, but sleep is the biggest factor right now.>>40392025Please note that only crits take priority, you would only have to worry if all 3 rolls were under 15
>>40392025On your side here, we're messing around with powerful science and overstepping our sanity is probably a shorty choice. We almost blew ourselves up making the cairnsium, if you all have forgotten
>>40392046thats also fine
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>40392048>inb4 we roll a 1
>>40392088>inb4 that would be taken even if you were at the lowest instability, because the minimum is 5.
>>40392048Well that doesn't seem nearly as bad in that case, I was in favor even when I thought it was a 15/100 chance
>>40392103wait when we failed the roll to calm down last thread was that a break down
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>40392103Not if we also roll a 100 and the only one left is 14
>>40392141Yes, but you weren't very stressed, so my random roll table was merciful, if you were stressed it would have been worse
>>40392169ok so what would build stress then to much super villain BS failing to build a project
>>40392232Yes, those would do it, but other factors in quest affect it too, such as exhaustion, relationship troubles, and other normal things.Gonna put a stress status in the sheet.
>>40392267thats good to know
