You weren’t aware that certain death was on the table, but apparently, that’s how things are. At least according to her. Her lack of a scent makes her every movement seem almost ethereal. You can’t shake the impression that her words are spilling out of a blank spot, a hole in the blanket of night. It makes you almost painfully aware of how you’ve come to rely on your heightened senses – you can see her, you can even feel the percussion of her every slight shift rolling through the earth, but without a scent attached to her your brain seems loathe to admit that she’s real. “…The group I represent is highly interested in this community. We have already taken steps to divert the public’s attention for as long as possible.” You listen closely to the soft thrumming of her heart. She’s not lying – not as far as you can tell. “Response by the city, however, is inevitable. You must know this.” Yeah, you pretty much know that. It will happen eventually. “You will have to defend yourselves eventually.” She smiles at you. You feel your heart quicken.>Present Time: 18:15 PM>Hunger Level: 2>Current Funds: $995>Solar Charge: 3/5>[ ] Okay, this is interesting and stuff, we have more pressing matters to discuss.>[ ] Demand to know who this woman represents.>[ ] If the people she’s working for have so much influence, can’t they help you get out of the city? >[ ] Keep quiet, voice no objections for now.>[ ] Write in.

She’s mentioned a larger organization twice now. You’re sort of curious about that – for good reason, you’d say. You don’t like dealing with Moon Knight, but you know its Moon Knight on the other end of your moon phone. You’ve got no idea who this person is. “These guys you work for, who are they?” She pierces deep with those bright yellow eyes of hers. You suddenly feel as though under an immense, indeterminate scrutiny, and you can’t help but deflate slightly. She turns her gaze away from you without answering. There’s something vaguely knowing in the curl of her smile. “How can you help with that?” Says Jono, his voice reverberating through you. His stance is visibly guarded, but you can tell he’s at least a little intrigued. You can’t help but feel that there’s something desperate and forlorn in the underpinnings of his whole demeanor. “With defending us, I mean?” The woman takes her time with her answer.“We have already introduced humanitarian aid.” The guys earlier. The charity guess. “But we can offer more than that. We can arm you. If necessary, we can teach you to defend yourselves from the humans.” >[ ] lol NO that sounds retarded. >[ ] You wouldn’t mind people getting trained up to use their powers.>[ ] There has to be something she wants in return, right?>[ ] Write in.

>>42356812I dunno, Gabby with a sniper rifle would be really intense. A sniper who can move position, from cover to cover instantly and get angled for perfect shots would be invaluable.
>>42356790And seeing that NYC is crawling with supervillains, we can probably steal some of their signature weapons as well.
>>42356672>[x] lol NO that sounds retarded>"At the moment, pro-mutant argument is that we cannot help being more dangerous than other people. The powers we wield are intangible and imposed upon us through random genetic mutation, not through any choice of our own.

>>42356884That's...actually a really, really good argument. I'm impressed, anon.
>>42356884This is a good point, and while I don't think it is one that is terribly in-character for JJ to make, I hope some other character will raise it.
That sounds lovely. Also insincere as hell, and possibly very dangerous. And you haven’t heard mention of a price tag yet. “But it’s not free, right?” Nothing is free. Ever. “What do you and your friends want in return?” She regards you again with the same vaguely amused stare. “You know…” She begins, chuckling quietly. It’s as artificial as can be. “…When Julian described you to me, I just knew we’d get along.”…What’s that supposed to mean? “What I want is a world where mutantkind is free to chart its own destiny.” Not a quaver. Not a tinge of deceit there. “We require no payment, save the knowledge that you and your friends are no longer easy prey for the humans.” You’ve never thought of yourself as easy prey. If only because you’re a hard man to find. Something about her implication gnaws at a deep-down part of you that takes pride in your nature. >[ ] Try to convince the others that this woman is bad for the Scar.>[ ] Don’t bother, just keep your peace.>[ ] Concede that you will need some kind of help.>[ ] Write in.

We should probably skip town at soonest convenience. She wants us to fight humans, and turn this shit into siege, and others are okay with this.We need our green thumb food gardens, and lets piss of to middle of desert, or something.
>>42357433>D. she won't imitate anyone and we'll still give her the D because she is the Christmas Cake to end all Christmas Cakes
>>42357433Thank god for senses five, our saving grace from those stupid sexy shape shifters
>>42357433D. We have sex with her, and she will abandon the child somewhere.
>>42357495Or we could tell Moon Knight and Daredevil to watch out for someone with her description as well as tell them what she wanted us to do.(I know it's Mystique, so a description won't work, but JJ doesn't realize that.)
Something to be said that I think JJ knows better than anyone here.Humans and Mutants can be just as evil as each other, just look at the gangsters and petty crime lords of this city.Stop stressing that its the humans that are going to prey upon us when it was Creeper and his goons who moved most of these kids into the city to use as drug farms.
>>42357544She gave a name, we'll have to see where it goes.
>>42357544No, but she has no smell. That doesn't change when shapeshifted. DD will be able to catch onto that, at least.
>>42357582Good point.>>42357563We should look her up on the Moon Phone. See if there's any data on her.

>>42357626No not yet.
>>42357495This is that one situation I'd agree chlorophyll could help us with. We provide our own food, and we become less reliant on Mystique and the Brotherhood, and most of our food can be grown underground. There's other benefits, like increased drug potency in the shit we harvest but honestly that's tertiary

You don’t like any of this. You’re surprised anyone is even giving her the time of day. “This is stupid.” You say, leaving tact at the door.“…Excuse me?” “This is stupid.” You repeat. “Right now, the only people on our side are there because we can’t help being dangerous. If we start tooling up, we lose that.”Julian raises his voice, butting in. “It’s better than doing nothing. What if they come for us tomorrow? What if they raise the red tape on the Sentinels and let them in to deal with us?” “If they come for us tomorrow…” You reply, your voice like slate. “…How the hell will a bunch of guns help us? Who here even knows how to shoot a gun right?” There is a long silence. Laura coughs, but very pointedly declines to raise her voice. Eventually, Hisako speaks up, addressing the Darkholme woman. “I think you should leave.” She says, her voice low. “If you want to give us food, or even help us with our powers, that’s great. But we don’t need guns.” The woman glances in Jono’s direction, as though expecting him to pitch in on her side, but he remains silent. She titters quietly. “Understood.” Turning away, she begins to pick her way down the side of the rubble strewn over one end of the school, her silhouette steadily diminishing into the dark. “I will discuss this with the others.” You wonder how that’ll go. Badly, you’re thinking. An awkward silence hangs in the air as she fades away into the night, the click of her heels cutting off abruptly. You can’t really tell what the others are thinking – Hisako looks relieved, you think, and Julian has a big, disappointed frown perched along his brow, but everyone’s being quiet. And you can never really tell what Jono’s thinking. He’s weird. >[ ] So. Typhon.>[ ] Ask Julian how he met that woman.>[ ] Write in.

>>42357805You don't need an architect, you need to be able to fashion support beams and the senses to tell you when you need more. An internet connection will tell the amount of draw needed to allow X number of people to breathe, and some math will give you the power as well.

>>42357985Considering we are in a major shipping city, we can go to the dock yards and steal entire flat bits of metal from the shipping crates and just coat the tunnels in metal were we need to. Reinforcement materials are very plentiful if you don't mind having to dodge bullets to get them.
>>42357985>>42358032Not to mention the old railway lines they seem to have not ripped up and taken. Surprised their still there, the metal would be worth a pretty penny at the scrapyard.

>>42358032An entire shipping crate would be good, while we're at it. Tilt it on its long end and remove the top and bottom, and you have an effective shaft support. We'd need a truck to move it, or at least some strong people.

>>42358032>>42358015>>42357985Sounds like we should bring it up. Even without magic food growing powers, starting a farm could help cut down on Corsairs stealing and organize ourselves in a non threatening way
You know we could just make some underground bunkers below the metro system or somewhere out of the way like that, to hide from sentinels. Dig in bunch of containers. Put up some guards. Would cut down on non combatant causalities.
Someone has to break the silence eventually. “Where’d she come from, Julian?” You say, still sniffing slightly, testing the air for any hint of something different – anything you could use to make the woman’s presence seem more tangible. “She sounded nuts.” Julian scowls at you. “She showed up at our place.” He says, eventually. “She knew stuff. She said the city were planning to turf us out soon – it’s only this red sky stuff with the Avengers that’s kept us safe. We should’ve”– “Should’ve what?” Jono’s voice crackles like nascent thunder. “Let her in, so we could get geared up for some kinda mutant revolution? You’re not even one of us. You get to go back to your nice, warm, cosy little flat when this meeting is over. We don’t. You have no fucking clue what we need, mate.”“…You want to watch that tongue.” Says Julian, a faint green glow entering his eyes.“You want a piece of this, Keller?” Jono’s voice is pure thunder now, blooming like a gas giant along the curve of your skull. He reaches up to the mess of scarves wrapped around his mouth, edging it down just very slightly. Something not quite fire and not quite lightning crackles though the air over his head. “Because, believe me, I am in the right bloody mood to”– This is getting pretty out of hand. >[ ] Tell Julian he’s being a prick.>[ ] Tell Jono he’s being overly aggressive.>[ ] Tell them both they’re being assholes.>[ ] Stay out, stand back.>[ ] Write in.

It has crazy low population so there would be less resistance from the locals compared to Canada.JJ can use blood powers to grow plants for everyone to make a self sustaining settlement.

>>42358288Less normal people = easier for groups to attack us.Paradoxically the closer we cling to normal human habitation zones the safer we are from big threats, then its just a matter of keeping the small threats suppressed somehow.
>>42358211>>[ ] Tell Jono he’s being overly aggressive.She offered help. Who can scoff at that lightly, so I can't blame Julian. She only wanted to help us gear for war.
>>42358204I dunno. We'd need to be pretty deep in crap for that to be beneficial. A good hiding spot allows you to run away.

>>[ ] Tell them both they’re being assholes."we don't need guns but we do need to begin planning for when the Government does come for us, we either need to be able to defend ourselves or find a way out of here to somewhere safe or maybe a bit of both."
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>42358408>>42358351We need to build some shelters, in case they start a purge or some shit. Then we be ready when the shit happens.Also we should make some evacuation plans for all.

Rolled 16 (1d20)>>42358408Worry.
>>42358211>>[ ] Stay out, stand back.
>>42358445An easy evac would be to dig out those filled-in tunnels to the rest of the metro stations. Grab a train and get out of jurisdiction quickly. Bunkers suck, if only because we cannot fight MCA off forever if it comes to it.
>>42358211>[ ] Tell them both they’re being assholes.>[ ] Look, Julian's friend brought attention to something we need; supplies. If we don't accept outside help, we're going to have to become self reliant. No more petty thievery, no more posturing, just a little slice of our own, yeah?
>>42358488Laura ages crazy slow. She would probably need to be a thousand years old to look like that.
>>42358488Well, this image was unexpected.
>>42358535Oh god, that really is JJ's dad...
Defense is practically impossible. These people aren't soldiers, most of them will fold when met with any kind of attack. Unless the situation changes drastically escape is pretty much the only option I see being successful.
>>42358587Slice that gets taken away sometime in the future near or far.>>42358598Get to healing 3 and you essentially stop aging, since to do the shit healing 3 and above does it resets the cells life clock.
>>42358488I'd still hit it.
>>42358567Underground we have the advantage of making a cave in, and fucking off mappable grid, in abandoned train tracks, half way to next town.
>>42358488>>42358608Looks pretty fucking cool, I think.And yeah, she'd be like 1,000 years old or more to look like a grandma.>>42358633Nah. JJ's dad has more emotion and love than Rick does.Crusty said that this is more like Joshua, but still not exactly.
>>42358650Wolverine has the equivalent of healing 6 and Laura has something better due to the lack of permanent adamantium poisoning, and they both age, so fuck you that isn't how it works.
>>42358696The dirt under my nails have more emotion and love than Rick does.
>>42358711>and Laura has something better due to the lack of permanent adamantium poisoning,But hers can be still kinda slow, though.I can't remember why, exactly, but it shifts from better to about the same level as his pretty frequently.
>>42358695Metro's don't stretch to inter city.>>42358711Fair enough, expecting comics to make sense is silly.Fuck you too anon.

Question time. If your girlfriend travels to an alternate future you won't end up in and fucks an older version of you, is it cheating?
>>42358743Don't need to be metros, there are other caves and stuff. We just gotta ask mole people. Also we could gain some sever dweller support, if we had decent non-sever housing.
>>42358695>>42358567>>42358445We could start our own Mutant Railroad (on an actual railroad) and JJ can be Harriet Tubman
>>42358846Only if she gets mad when you do the same in that inevitable out of continuity crossover event nobody talks about.>>42358862Addendum: that is a big damn cobra.
>>42358846I think that should be considered on a case-by-case basis.>>42358881And sexier, too.
>>42358846Only if she acts disappointed in your present-day performance when she gets back.

>(1/2)“Oh, yeah? You’re in the mood? Well that makes”– Urgh. You glance at Hisako, sharing a brief, synchronized moment of despondent sympathy for one another. –“push me, Keller, you won’t like what happens when”– These people are giving you a headache. They’re like children. Lost and… directionless. Clingy. You remember another young mutant, very much like that, very much lost and alone and without an inkling of sense. You remember him falling, falling, falling through time and space, grasping desperately for the first light to shine her way. His way, his – HisS way, way, way – “…That’s enough, guys…” –“on then, you little wank stain! I’ll”– “…Guys, you’re… that’s…” Your head hurts. The stupidity of this throbs like a welt upon the back of your skull. Growing. Burning.–“do it, Jono! Just fucking”– You feel the fire enter your voice. --------------------------------------------------------------------You are Laura Kinney, clone and mutant vagrant. You step back, shielding your face with your arms, as your boyfriend ignites in front of you. For a moment, you almost panic, but it immediately comes to you that there’s no heat – just a palpable sense of pressure radiating off him in waves. A plume of ghostly blue flame whirls around him, bathing the old schoolyard in shifting, auroric light, twisting about his head and sparking across his slender horns. His eyes shine light stars and when he opens his mouth the sound is -ENOUGH.Your heart clenches and you hear Kevin make a choked, gristly yelp beside you. His nose is bleeding. So is yours. As quickly as it appeared, the fire recedes, shriveling back under JJ’s skin. The light fades from his eyes and...

“Right, so…” …This is always awkward. You think. You think hard about what to say. “…I called you guys here because we have a real problem.” Not some vague promise of eventual eviction. Something tangible. “There’s… there’s this guy skulking around this place, hurting…” It dawns on you, suddenly, that you don’t actually know what Typhon is doing. You just assume what he’s doing is bad “…hurting people. He’s delusional and incredibly dangerous and he seems to be gathering some kind of following.” You kind of want to say a cult. “…Does this guy…” Hisako pauses, wiping something from her mouth. Is that blood? “Does this guy have a name?” Joseph.“He calls himself Typhon.” Everyone’s quiet. Everyone’s really quiet. They’re watching you like you’re about to explode or something. “Alright.” Says Jono, breaking a long silence. “What’s he want?” “…I dunno.” You really don’t.“What can we do about him, then?” Come to think of it, you don’t know. You don’t know how powerful he is, or what he’s doing, or how to find him. >Suggestions

>>42359987>>give a physical description and tell them to be wary of anyone offering you what you want mostand>tell them he steals powers and he claims to have invented Jack. and he's dangerous and not alone
>>42359987He's some kind of Geneticist, and as far as I've been able to put together he created Jack as a byproduct of one of his experiments.Needless to say, he doesn't seem to care much about that, and I have no idea what his end goals for his work are.Spread the word about him, keep a look out. He apparently hasn't been shy with his name. He's a mad scientist and if you see him you run or shoot first and then run.
>>42359987Tell them about the graffiti and the attack on kevin
>>42359987>"He's fascinated with me. He came after my friend. He now no longer has his power, and...it's...really bad, alright? He's like me, in that there's no real way to know what he's capable of. There's very few people who can measure that kind of power. I'll be making calls, but until I get a proper plan you all need to be careful. Don't engage, if at all possible."
>>42359987Typhons got connection to Jack and he's got underlings (Echidna). People should stay away and any sightings should be reported to people on top.More importantly, we were hoping someone could help Kevin. Can the Cuckoos inquire what happened to him and translate for us?

If you don't, and he gets his hands on you, he'll probably screw with your genes and possibly his own from what he learns doing it. Which means you're screwed and its just got worse for everyone else. Aside from all the other happy news, he's obsessed with me, my dad's research, and I'm pretty sure he's the guy that invented Jack."
>>42360255>EVEN OUR MINDNo.We don't want the Cuckoos to activate the demon's "gift".
“For now…” For now, you’re kind of just swinging in the dark, aren’t you? You feel like you know nothing about Typhon, but he knows damn near everything about you. “…I’d say nobody should be going out alone, no matter how tough you think you are. If you want to, I dunno, head into town with a friend, and you don’t have big powers, someone that can make an impact should be going with you.” Safety in numbers. Tried and tested. “Hah.” It spits through your head like a line of firecrackers. You didn’t know Jono could make that kind of noise. “Kiden won’t like that.” “She’ll have to deal with it.” You give them a brief description of Typhon as he was when you last ran into him – tall, dark-haired, blemishless, with eyes like stars. You notice a few shared looks when you bring up that last thing. You try to describe the… feeling… he radiates, that blissful sense of warmth and acceptance, but it’s hard. Try as you might, it’s honestly beyond words. Laura cuts in, saying it’s the safest she’s ever felt. Which makes you kind of jealous, actually. “Just so you guys get quite how serious up this guy is, he claims to have invented Jack and he might be some kind of power thief.” The silence hangs. “And…” You glance over at Kevin. …Is he wiping blood from his mouth?Does everyone have nosebleed for some reason? “…he did something to Kevin, something that took away his speech. I don’t know how it works or if it’s even permanent, but…” You turn towards Julian and the triplets. The tripartite blondes are staring intently at you, a low, barely-audible hum passing between their lips. “…we'd be incredibly grateful if you could take a look at his head, maybe see if you can fix something.” One of them turns to Julian, a silent conversation passing between them, and their eyes come down once again upon you. They nod, and Julian mutters that he’ll get in touch about it. >anythin else?
>>42360644>anythin else?About Typhon or are you asking if there are any other topics in general we want to bring up?
>>42360644>>[ ] Discuss moving people underground.+general evacuation, and housing in a way to be less noticeable. We stand out too much.We need anti sentinel plan.
>>42360644any new business?Julian, what else did you tell that woman?
>>42360644>"I...apologize for my outburst. Next order of business, what we will do in regards to moving the people here out of the city and away from Mutant Control."
>>42360644Ask why everyone's bleeding.
>>42360644We need a central spot to go to if theres an emergency. Suggest an underground place as a panic bunker. If theres someone who could do either a mental or sonic emergency alarm, then that would do great.
>>42360748JJ isn't really aware of what he did, if you haven't noticed.
>>42360644Moving underground, starting a farm. Establishing the city state Rockopolis
>>42360752seconded. I think they think we did that on purpose.
>>42360644>>anythin else?Bring up finishing off the Triads and the Russians asking their opinion on if they would be willing to finish them off to stop Jack distribution. Its okay to not decline from participating.
>>42360644Try to avoid stealing from residential areas. It's better PR to mug a drug dealer + they carry more cash.
>>42360769No, but everyone got real quiet after he told them to shut it.
>>42360644"...why is everyone bleeding?"Then start planning for the event of mutant control invasion. Bring up the underground as a possibility.
>>42360644>moving underground>clearing out the abandoned metro tunnels for escape routes>finding an underground resevoir and creating a community farm
>>42360796What are you, a PSA from the 80s? No..
>>42360644>anythin else?Moving underground and getting things mapped out for an eventual escape plan.Training people in martial arts, in case shit goes bad.Ask why everyone has a nosebleed except for JJ.Ask if anyone else has questions or suggestions or anything they'd like to share with the group.
>>42360644Why is everyone bleeding? Also moving underground, clearing metro tunnels and using them as escape routes, farms, water, and more gang push back
>>42360644Mutants in the Underground: Plan or New Post Rock Band? You decide!
>>42360644>Why's everyone bleeding?
>>42360644Ask if they know anyone that can dig. Living underground is stupid. But tunnels to move people out when the Sentinels come is a good idea.
>>42360644Discuss becoming mushroom farmers, and the eradication of the drow and their queen Lolth
>>42360644>Underground plan>Ask if everyone's ok, with the nosebleedsMaybe we should mention how we had a run-in with Typhon a while back, and now our powers have been getting a bit weird, just to give them something more concrete to go on as to why they shouldn't trust him?
Farms underground will not work. The grid in this area is turned off, so it would be running on battery's or running a line from a local power point, which would be easily traceable.So the farms would be up as long as an electric gen mutant is awake and using. Not really ideal. Same problem with water.Both those would be required for an underground farm. Its just not feesable.
>>42361036mushroom farm brah
>>42360995>Ask if they know anyone that can dig.They know JJ.>>42361036>Farms underground will not work.Crusty said they would.
>>42360760>>42360777>>42360829>>42360832Living underground is stupid. If we dig underground tunnels it would only be escape tunnels. There is no way that actually living under New York could be a long term plan.
>>42361036Actually, if we could get access to some decent batteries, it could work, but that'd be some serious investment.
>>42361068This, we'd need to be T3 along with having some serious backing to even think about doing it.
>>42361036Mushroom or root veggies, and also discussing who has what power and a rotation
>>42361057>>42361066Would involve heaving lots of compost in, and still need a water source.They would work, but draw everyone to were we are. Like a big electrical sign singing "Here we are, come and get us!"Not really what your aiming for in an underground abode.
>>42361117Well we could contact *insert science genius superhero here* and hope he likes muties?
I voted to ask why everyone's bleeding, but I'm absolutely disgusted by the person who is samefagging for the same thing. Shame on you, sir.
>>42361066>They know JJJJ can dig but he can't prevent the tunnel from collapsing. There are probably mutants in the marvel universe that can make their own concrete or something.>Crusty said they would.If JJ gets the Chlorophyll extrapolative (which we don't have) then he would be able to grow plants without sunlight. But that doesn't solve the light or clean water problems.
>>42361117Actually, if we got into it, we could create a system in which any water that was put into the ground stayed there (swales), massively lowering the water needed. Compost is an issue, but it'd just take time and effort.
>>42361068im the guy who suggested panic bunker, and thats all i want. Somewhere to fall back to if we need to
“…Anything else?” Says Julian, hands stuffed in his pockets and chin up. He sounds a little hostile. Everyone feels a bit on-edge, actually.But yeah, there’s a few other things you’ve been wanting to talk about…You describe at length the ideas that blossomed in your head on the way to the meeting. You’re all starting to become pretty visible – with or without powers – so you’ve been thinking that people should start moving off the streets. You know at least one group that hides out under an old parking lot, and they’ve got the right idea, far as you’re concerned. People should be moving underground. You can clear out some of the disused metro tunnels for easy escape routes when the shit starts hitting the fan, maybe even dig a few tunnels of your own. If you can find an underground reservoir it might not be too far-fetched to start planting stuff down there, too. It’s strange. The more you talk, the more you realize you’re thinking of the Scar less like a nasty tear in NY’s hide, and more like a nation. Hisako chuckles quietly. “You want us to come and live underground with you and your Morlocks?” What? “…What?” She blinks, a look of surprise flashing across her features. “Morlocks. Y’know, that’s what people’ve been calling you…” She trails off for a moment, just staring at you, a hint of embarrassed pink flushing through her cheeks. “…since you guys live underground and stuff.” Huh. Morlocks. “…Well, maybe.” You say, eventually. “It could be an idea.” >ROLL>no set DC>+1 modifier
>>42361182We don't have that power. And there are a lot of anti-druid anon's that would rather JJ die than get plant related powers.
>>42361117Everyone already knows we're here, your point? No one is talking about leaving the Scar, just escape plans, so becoming self reliant is better then attracting police due to active petty thievery which is arguably MORE attention catching
>>42361182So JJ has to stay within a few days travel or all the crops die. brilliant plan, its not like he has not gone missing for weeks at a time before.>>42361188Interesting, i need to read up on swales.

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>42361117We can dig a freaking well.Also we could probably get some glow in the dark mutant fruits, or have some of the plant type mutants think of some mushroom thing.Glowshrooms are a thing, and there are some of those glowy power gems things, not to mention super robotic stuff.Start off with a panic bunkers. Making a city is a long term plan, and we can get sewer dwellers involved in that.Remember morlocks survived a shitton of purges.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>42361216
Rolled 7 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>42361216There's already Morlocks. We can be wombles.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>42361216No one expects the cave troll
>>42361216Did this bitch just call us Morlock? I want to use this as our next hero name now though.
Rolled 3 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>42361216"Tunnel Snakes."Pistachios aren't Peanuts, Captcha.
>>42361275Didn't they eventually die to a predator X thing?Frankly i just dont want to end up underground permanently.
>>42361216"hmmm, here I was thinking you guys called us the Tunnel Snakes. in any case, yes, tunnels are relatively safe and we should move into them."
>>42361314She compared tunnel snakes to this group: http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Morlocks_(Earth-616)
>>42361239That's only if JJ had powers like Chlorophyll or green finger. (which for some reason a lot of anons are dead set against getting) Without superpowers those plants listed can't grow without sunlight.
>>42361328I asked Crusty awhile back, Predator X hasn't been created yet in this universe.
>>42361216"Tunnel Snakes rule"
>>42360957>>42361006JJ doesn' t have Green Thumb yet, but I heard it's pretty easy to ranch snails underground, just dig a trench around them and that acts as a corral.>>42361155I bet Typhon likes muties.>>42361156Maybe they are all suppressing a boner after seeing JJ's ass?
>>42361290Actually in universe the mutant morlocks don't exist as far as anyone is aware, Morlocks is a reference to a species of underground people from a fuck old book
>>42361349I'm pretty sure she was referencing The Time Machine, which is where the name comes from. Do the Morlocks as in the mutant group even exist in the Crustyverse?
Chlorophyll is one point.we can buy it today and make that tunnel society thing a viable option.
>>42361370I was just checking since my knowledge on their eventual fate was shaky.Separating from human population too far is generally bad, since it exposes us much more to clandestine attack.
>>42361420>from a fuck old bookAre there seriously people who haven't read H.G. Wells' The Time Machine?
>>42361424>Do the Morlocks as in the mutant group even exist in the Crustyverse?Yeah, but, at least he last time we asked about it, Crusty said that they were ravaged by Sabretooth.
>>42361450We are a bunch of mutant hobos. You think we read books?
>>42361430lets stay above ground!and be vulnerable to snipers and airbombings
>>42361429Well that settles it, I'm opposing Chlorophyll. I don't want us getting too comfortable living underground.
>>42361410Can we somehow move the conversation towards our ass? I think our leadership would increase if everyone realized that we have dat kind of booty.
>>42361429Anon, please. Power chat should be after the thread.
>>42361485In the middle of a massive civilian population.Folks are allot less happy when normal people die when fanatics attack peaceful mutants who are alongside them.
>>42361450>>42361469Yes, we do. JJ's mom made sure we were well educated and could play a musical instrument autistically well.
>>42361530peaceful mutants is an oxymoron in the minds of most marvel citizens
>>42361530Folks are breaking mutant kneecaps on sight, if they get a chance to.
>>42361554Don't really matter, we are basically using them as meat shields to not be stomped on by giant killer robots.
>>42361420...aw. Pity. Wombles would've fit way better.We could've been Uncle Bulgaria.
>>42361290>>42361349Niggahs, read a book (not comicbooks) Hisako is referencing the species from the book the Time Machine. The mutant group Morlocks doesn't exist
>>42361584>The mutant group Morlocks doesn't existThey do, actually.
>>42361584They do now.
>>42361530Marvel civilians, buddy. Assume they have the brain of a six year old autistic kid who thinks mutants are behind all the worlds evils
>>42361584I've read the book, good sir. Weren't the Morlocks referenced when we were first exploring the tunnels?
>>42361492Be honest, you were opposed to Chlorophyll from the start
>>42361582so they evacuate a couple of blocks and close in
Just did some reading http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Morlocks_(Earth-616)Even if these Morlocks don't exist do these tunnels exist? It says they're all over New York New Jersey, and Connecticut. One runs the entire length of Manhattan. That could be supper freaking useful.
Can we not rustle my jimmies today druidfags? You aren't wanted, fucking go and stay go
>15“Anyway…” You scratch at your neck, feeling a little awkward once again. “…Sorry for shouting. I kinda lost my temper there.” Because these guys were being giant babies. But it’s okay – you, Jonathan James Green, are the bigger mutant, and so you will apologize for things that aren’t actually your fault at all. That’s what being an adult is all about, right? With your business concluded, your three merry bands go about their merry way. The Young X-Men, back to their library-turned-mansion, the Hellions to their apartment, and the Corsairs, you’re willing to bet, in the direction of someone with disposable income and loose locks. As you descend the trail of rubble sprawling across one side of the school you hear someone picking their way through the mess, and grimace very slightly when Megan appears beside Laura. “Hey!” She grins broadly, eyes shining. “Jono said I could go back with you guys! You have a seriously loud voice, by the way…” Oh no. She’s going to talk about things now. You might even have to talk back.-------------------------------------------------------------------->HMQ 130: END>Congratulations! You sorted out those guys!>Congratulations! You didn't join the Brotherhood!>Congratulations! Your head hurts a little.There will be a brief vote in just one moment.
>>42361679I've been on the fence about Druid powers for awhile now, as I have seen good arguments both for and against it. Right now, I'm worried it will promote the idea of forming a "settlement", and I don't want us getting too attached to the Scar.
>>42361724Escape tunnels via the old metros, then everyone scatters for a while.Big operations require a big target.
>>42361744thanks for running chlorophyll
>>42361783Okay. I'll go through it tomorrow.
>>42361744Thanks for running crusty.Still gunning for optical force blast myself.
>>42361783Every time you mention the ask he puts it off another week. You're bringing this on yourself.
>>42361743or you'll samefag with your two phones and pc?
>>42361783Don't be annoying.
>>42361744>not voting for Phasingwhere my phasingbros at
>>42361801Derp. telescopic vision (to enhance OFB).
>>42361793Thank you.I just really get annoyed by the lack of a schedule. It's fine if I have to wait like a week or two for questions to be answered, if it's a reliable schedule.And I apologize if I've been annoying.>>42361816See>>42361793>>42361825It's been nearly a month. And I did apologize.
>>42361744>chlorophyllWe should had joined brotherhood, if they were not bunch of suicidal dipshits
>>42361819>people with two phones and a pcSucks being a poorfag, unable to spam votes for your preferred abilities, like phasing.
>>42361744>MeganWorry.>There will be a brief vote in just one moment.So it begins.
>>42361216>Tunnel Snakes Rule
>>42361450I... I only watched the movie.*sob*
Okay, so, some of the decisions you've made her will take a while to materialize. You have the option of a short timeskip up to a certain person's birthday, in which time a few of things will have changed in the Scar.Post >Y for YES TIMESKIP ME CRUSTY MY NARRATIVE IS MOVING ON ITS OWN>N for no pls no crusty don'tThis follows the same rules as the numbered votes. Don't post shit but the letter. No greentext or quotes neither. GO!
Chlorophyl me up CJ.
>>42361842Right here, anon, but we need to vote for Chlorophyll as well so they'll become one of us.
So now that we've been approached by the Brotherhood representative, what are the chances the undercover X-men agent will try to make contact with us?
Pls no "volunteer superhero, and join the overly mustached gentleman league" while we are time skipping.
>>42361897>YIf you feel its best for pacingDO IT
>>42361897Do we get to vote on what we trained in during the time skip like last time? We voted for Daredevil training last time. But I really want to get [proficient] in at least 1 martial art instead of being at [basic] with everything.
VOTING CLOSED. Looks like next time will be HMQ: Waifu Birfday edition.>>42361936Keep fighting that good fight, anon.
>>42362000We've already seen Kitty Pryde before.
>>42362033VOTE TO WEAR UNDERWEAR ON THE OUTSIDE
>>42362033Could go for a few scenes with people though.Trainning session with Laura, hanginig our with the gang, seeing nokiros arm better etc.
I just tested some stuff, and trying to multiple post by changing name, options or capitalization of the "Y" doesn't work.
>>42362057They invaded another quest once with their shit
>>42362044I hope so. Which one?>Basic Jeet Kune Do.>Basic Tae Kwon Do.>Basic Kali.
>>42362053But will she or someone else spill the beans who she works for after the JJ told Brotherhood to back off?
>>42362000>implying they haven't alreadyFOR FUCKS SAKEHISAKOTHE YOUNG XMENI'VE BEEN TELLING YOU FOR FUCKING MONTHS
>>42362033Dude we already volunteer superhero
>>42362051is there a power vote too? or do we get chlorophyll over the timeskip?
>>42362044Yes you do. I'm going to do that after holding a vote on Chlorophyll, since that's the only power anyone's asking for right now.
>>42362098I don't know if she still works with the X-Men or if she quit but occasionally helps out.>>42362110Do you like my archive summary, Crusty?
>>42362110We haven't got any more x points have we?
>>42362101I hope you're right, and I hope it gets us access to Henry McMotherfuckingCoy.
>>42362110How about a vote on the Team Name? I thought you were going to hold it after Hisako brought it up before the meeting was over to be honest.
>>42362110whatnoI'm asking for NatWeap
>>42362142Hopefully not the bitchy catman version.
NUMBERED VOTE, NUMBERED VOTE.It's time for the unique IP count to explode. Remember the rules, guys. No quotes, no greentext, nothing but the number.Post,>1 for CHLOROPHYLL>2 to BANK
>>42362110You should give us Kung-Fu points the same way you do X-points.
>>42362167Chlorophyll is the only one people want that you can afford.
Hope if bank wins we dont have this vote every damn thread till we get another X point.
>>42362253no quotes man>>42362258But, phasing man
>>42362142yeah, but then that still means we have to deal with Hank McCoy.In 616 he's become a big Hippocratic, especially with his dealings regarding Rightclops.You know, telling scott it was a terrible idea to have a black ops hit squad, then joining the avengers black ops hit squad.Saying they shouldn't work with Magneto, then turning around to work with his evil alternate Dark Beast to try and undo M Day.616 Hank is a bit of a monster.And don't get me started on his Illuminati business.Well, maybe this world's hank is better. Maybe he's more like 70s Avengers Hank, TAS Hank, or Evolution hank.
>>42362287That is just shitty really. At least wait until new X points are gained or else what was the point of the previous vote? just waiting till enough of the spenders are here to win the vote? well its not like we can do much about it without being unfair, but still annoying.
>Mfw the unique IDs skyrocket.
>>42362340There was no vote on last X point though, was there?
So much for saving for actually useful T3 skills.
Damn just missed the vote
>>42362379Yes there is always a vote when we win X points. Last time we voted on the remaining one bank won, and now were basically redoing the same vote over the same x point.
>>42362281after all these years, who would have thought the phasing meme would've gotten a chuckle out of me?>>42362294I thought 616 was gone.either way, I doubt Crusty would go for the time travel shenanigans.also I don't think you're referring to his medicinal practices when you say hyppocratic for some reason.
>>42362348I counted 14-14 tie
>Druids wonFuck this gay Earth
>>42362412Yeah, this was kind of weird. Why are we revoting over the same X-Point?
>>42362412Except when crusty calls it off early.
>>42362374There has literally been one new unique IP. I'm only not gonna call you a fag because your pic amuses me.
it won i voted as a joke! i thought it would get shut down like always!
>>42362455Damn now I really feel like a schmuck, I could've tied it.
>>42362455Counting a 2 in the wrong column bud.
INCREDIBLE, FOLKS! We have a tie. So we gonna roll.Someone roll a d2. 1 is Druidman Begins. 2 is Bankman Rises.
>>42362416Nope, I used the wrong word. Hypocrite is what I meant when he told scott what he was doing was wrong and then he turned around and did the same thing if not worse.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>42362481Rolling
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>42362481

>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496Huh... So TG wants Druid
>>42362491FUCK...I don't actually care that much.
>>42362496>>42362494>>42362491THE DICE HAVE SPOKEN
>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496The results are in, folks. The mystery of the druids has begun.One more vote soon.
Plants are boring. Farmings boring.
>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496Thus the dice gods decree, so it shall be!
>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496DICE GODS HAVE SPOKEN>>42362504cry hardereven with that admitted samefagger you lost
>>42362554I samefagged for druids, suck it nerds
>>42362554samefagging on every side anon.Trolls gonna troll.
>>42362529>...I don't actually care that much.Neither do I.I actually voted twice (not using a phone. Just voted for the other option) 'cause I really didn't give a shit which won and I liked both anyway.Plus I hope we use our new power to grow shittons of super weed and sell it low to undercut the other gangs & dealers.
>>42362526So same time next week, anon? I honestly agree with you, anon, but this is 4chan.
>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496I don't know whether to laugh, cry, be angry, or kill myself.>>42362526>Lets not do this stupid shit again.Hah, you can't be serious. We still need Mutate Flora and Ambrosia to pick up the Joshua Tree, everyone's favorite power! :^)ONLY SEVEN MORE POINTS TO GO
>>42362491>>42362494>>42362496The Dice Gods have spoken. Let a wave of succulent vegetables and dank herb wash over this land!
I samefagged for Phasing, suck it plebs
I samefagged for phasing.See? Anyone can claim to samefag for a side to make it look worse.
>>42362540Do we get anything special for the triple roll? Like with the intimidation triple roll?
>>42362600You're welcome my fellow druidbro, praise be to Y'galnearth the elder oak!
>>42362606I wouldnt even mind joshua tree, if you just picked up telescopic vision and microscopic vision first, because then you would at least be able to put off the downside of the tree.
I forgot to samefag for vampiric touch
SO you guys gonna timeskip. JJ isn't just gonna sit on his ass while you guys flash forward, though. JJ is a machine who eats player choices and shits out narrative. He can't be stopped, not even by fade to black.So, while you're lounging around, JJ will be perfecting TWO of his martial skills. Which of those skills will it be? Post, >1 for JEET KUNE DO.>2 for TAE KWON DO.>3 for KALI.>4 for GETTING SWOLE.The two highest results will be the skills JJ focuses on.
>>42362606Don't care about Joshua tree. Do care about Mutate flora + Green Finger.
>>42362622>>42362631I'm both these guys.
>>42362631Yeah but I at least provided pics when I did it. I'm still salty as fuck the bank lost though. :(
I voted for chlorophyll because I want us to eventually get Joshua Tree. Mostly because once this quest is all over I'm gonna run this universe as a game for my friends and having mutant gene activating fruits is a hell of a plot hook.
>>42362685What martial art skill does what, faggot?
>>42362665Druidfags have tunnel-vision on par with Muscle Memory / karatefags, don't expect them to vote for anything but banking until they can vote for their Joshua Tree pre-reqs.
Rolled 4, 1 = 5 (2d4)>>42362685
>>42362685Kali and getting swole
>>42362710>and having mutant gene activating fruits is a hell of a plot hook.So why not just run a game in the One Piece Universe?
>>42362685...do we post two numbers, or post one and its the two highest between us?
>>42362721Jeet Kune Do is a fast, kick-heavy style that takes greater advantage of your agility.Tae Kwon Do is a much more direct style that helps you center and benefits greatly from your strength.Kali is beating people with sticks.
We currently have: Basic Jeet Kune Do. Bruce leeBasic Tae Kwon Do. KicksBasic Kali. Sticks
Easier to get swole now with ultra veggies
>>42362802Use can use knives with Kali
>>42362721Jeet is Bruce Lee
>>42362802Oh, in that case definitely Jeet Kune Do, since Agility is our better attribute.
>>42362753Turns out JJ is the origin of devils fruits, after apocalypse happens.I would be ok with that.
>>42362833Go away farmer steve, no one wants you here.Chloro is for weed and weed derivatives.JJ will be the pot master.
>>42362802Why not call it arnis, then? I got confused for a second there.PS: arnis a shit, FMA is better.
>>42362725>people vote for powers they likethose bastards
>>42362802May we also get the others of our group to learn some martial arts?And also teach Laura about blowjobs? (We don't need detailed posts about it. A sentence or two describing how it went would be enough.)
>>42362725Hey would you like chips with that salt?I grew them myself
I have no idea which votes are valid.
>>42362725Not really, I want the exploding vision, and telescopic vision before Joshua tree.
>>42362866Now how does this work, Crusty? One vote per post?
>>42362880She knows to swallow.Far as I'm concerned, that'll do.
>>42362685>>4 for GETTING SWOLE.>1 for JEET KUNE DO.
I imagine JJ would be pretty good as a drunken master.Put together with his hobo attire it would be a very wtf hero.
Wait, why do we want to get swole?Bulky JJ just dont feel right
What are we getting Laura for her birthday?
>>42362928It's more like licking it off her hand.
Okay wait a minute. Wait a minute. I only intended for people to chuck one number in each.We may have to do this again. Yes, we're doing this again.Please refer back to the number key, and post your preferred option again. Just one number this time.
>>42362913Nobody does.I'll be honest here. I voted twice for the two things I'd like.
>>42362864I mean, JJ sprinkling blood on his little veggie garden isn't what I think of as farming but okayI mean you still smoke weed erryday
>>42362685Bruce Lee and getting Swole are the best options.
>>42362940Cake, some nice clothes.Maybe a really nice knife and/or gun.
>>42362938They each represent training to perfect a technique. 4 implies JJ and Laura have been having a lot of alone time.
Rolled 2, 2 = 4 (2d4)>>42362952Phasing
>>42362938Laura likes toight muscle and getting in shape/proper nutrtion>>42362940a solemn vow to stop wearing shirts
>>42362952Well, you did say JJ will get two.Then you said pick.Misleading, I guess? FUCK IF I KNOW!
>>42362935JJ can't even afford to get drunk with that metabolism of his.Unless Hollywood has been lying to me and drunk masters don't actually get drunk for real.
>>42363024Yeah they don't actually get drunk, its mainly a reflexive based style from what i have heard.
>>42362983Yes. Yes they are. But if there was a drunken master option, I'd vote for that ahead of all logic and reason.
Drunken master would be kinda of amazing.
>>42362952Crusty, remember that sometimes you can take a deep breath and think about how you're going to do something before screwing it up.There's a reason why someone couldn't cook a roast.
Wait. If we get swole, our ass might get even more perfect.This might be too much power for one man.
Laura's B-day gift is JJ getting himself Yoga pants
>>42363082Well, all Drunken Master really is, is a reactive fighting style where you do stupid crazy shit in order to evade, strike, and confuse your enemy.
4>captcha is saladIt knows
>>42363116I could see JJ becoming a drunken master later on in life.Grizzled JJ who looks middle aged and is a sour knight in armor.Maybe runs his own private detective agency and occasionally teaches May Parker some martial arts & life lessons.>>42363152Oh yes~
>>42363116>>42363082All we need is to meet the right old homeless man in a shop with dumplings and chopsticks.As for the present, maybe some leather gloves with studs on? something with an open back so she don't tear em with her claws.
>>42363172The only reason may Parker comes around is because she has the hots for JJ an Laura son
>>42363206Whip and black leather corset?
Looks like you're going with BRUCE LEE and GETTING TOIGHT.Alright then, that'll be all.Oh, except you're also getting a +1 to Persuasion, partly because you've used it a lot, and partly because those three 1's have caused JJ's chlorophyll to kick in super hard, enhancing your lovely floral scent.
>>42363277Doesn't he still smell of lilies?
>>42363277Thanks for running Crusty.
>>42363277Diplomance is best. Thanks for running, Crusty.
>>42363277Someone will want to bottle that scent, and it will make JJ rich."Hello ladies, look at your man now back to me,"
>>42363277leaf underwear when?
>>42363277Aw yeah we swollest, fresh smelling mutie
>>42363236Or daughter.I wonder what JJ and Laura's kids would look like, anyhow, aside from very attractive.>>42363277>and GETTING TOIGHT.I hope that means GETTING SWOLE.>except you're also getting a +1 to Persuasion,Finally.>enhancing your lovely floral scent.I hope someone comments on this, like Layla or Julian asking if he wears perfume.>>42363297Lilies and lotuses, yes.
>>42363236I wonder if she's bumping wrinklies with JJJ Sr. in Crustyverse too.
>>42363277Is JJ a 9/10 now that he's swole
For Laura the Austismo-Gizmo? I think a dog would work just fine.You don;t even have to buy one, smell an exemplar homeless dog, clean it up a little, and bingo, present. Think of me when you are getting the most amazing sex of your life.
>>42363277D-does this mean Laura is going to want to taste JJ even more?
>>42363206>group of soldiers walk into the shop, see bum looking ass dude>go to fuck with him, cause why not, he manages to take all of their wallets while they fuck with him>he plays keep away with their shit while they all try to dogpile him and kick his ass>overzealous dude pulls his gun, gets laid the fuck out>suddenly guns everywhere, bullets flying, shits crazy>no bullet holes anywhere>bum looking ass dude drops all the bullets in front of them, falls flat on his faceSuch is the life of a master.
>>42363331Well ask again in 9 months, depending on how his first time with laura went.
>>42363342Wasn't Laura forced to like, kill puppies or something during her training?
>>42363318>people find out how Jack is made>pretend to care, nobody does shit>people find out Eau de JJ is actually his sweat>Sentinels. Sentinels everywhere.
>>42363342>I think a dog would work just fine.That'll just make her cry.>>42363277I forgot to ask how strong JJ is now that he's getting beefy.>>42363368JJ's genetics are too weird right now to have kids.
>>42363361And by boosting agility to 6, that could be JJ, folks.
>>42363277>Oh, except you're also getting a +1 to Persuasion, partly because you've used it a lot, and partly because those three 1's have caused JJ's chlorophyll to kick in super hard, enhancing your lovely floral scentSuuure. Nothing to do with the ass getting even better. Gotcha.
>>42363386She was given a puppy and grew to love it, then ordered to murder it or else they'd slowly torture it to death.
Workout JJ needs no deodorant.
>>42363361I really want this guy to exist now.>>42363415Pre T3, its still possible, and even after T3 if he stabilizes.Shit gets weird when you take high end healing and the self image principle. Just look at deadpool, hes basically a walking cancer, but stays in human shape.
>>42363415>JJ's geneticsThey're weird. It means we could have them, but it also means there might be a chance of miscarriage more then normal. I mean, shit, they're already homeless, it's a tough life.
>>42363447Yeah, that. Maybe getting her a dog wouldn't be a great idea.
neither JJ nor Laura are going to be too old to conceive for at least 50 years or so. take it easy, guys. save the kids for the epilogue.>...implying
>>42363478Not like JJ would know, though.
Next thread when, Crusty?
>>42363563Well this wouldn't be the first time we've metagamed in order to avoid a stupid decision.
Since we voted to get swole will JJ have cleared out some of the caved in tunnels? Digging through solid rock would be a pretty good workout.
>>42363652Helped around the scar too, yeah. Along with regular walks, some stretches, lifting, and so on.
>>42363652we don't have invincible fists.
>>42363652>>42363707Also getting food that's actually better for you than the cheap stuff he's been buying.
