> This is my very first QMed Quest, so criticism is welcome, and probably requires at times.> This quest is starting just before the actual Civil War, and we'll follow the path to, and possibly get involved with, the Civil War.> Your choices will affect your character, and the world around you, especially as you gain power and influence.> Death is a possibility, and although it doesn’t always stick, it’s certainly more permanent than in the actual comics.The sound of your alarm clock shocks you awake, which was probably for the better, since you were having nightmares again. You sigh and go about your morning ritual, preparing for the day ahead of you, while reflecting. You’re more than a bit worried about the future. You try not to get too involved in politics, yourself, but even you’ve heard of the SHRA, the Super Human Registration Act. According to the news, the law’s been stuck in limbo for quite a while, being proposed only a few years after the Mutant Registration Act, but recently it’s been getting traction. Enough that only one big push would be needed to pass the law. You’re not sure what you think of it yet, but you do already know for sure it’s going to cause issues.>Who are you?>A. You are Zach Reeves, a New York teenager. Your dad is a Z-List supervillain, and you’ve recently found sentient alien armor that gives you lightning powers.>B. You are Chris Goodwin, a student at the Xavier Institute. You’re a mutant with the ability to manipulate solar energy. You’re also one of the 198 mutants that still have their powers, and you’ve recently watched several of your friends get blown up. >C. You are Dean Walters. You’re a completely average twenty-something, living in Broxton, Oklahoma. Your girlfriend has recently broken up with you, and last night you ate at a really good chinese restaurant.
>>42414218CNormal guy in a superhero setting sounds interesting.
>>42414218>A. You are Zach Reeves, a New York teenager. Your dad is a Z-List supervillain, and you’ve recently found sentient alien armor that gives you lightning powers.
>>42414239All we'd have to do is become batman.Or join SHIELD.
>>42414218C. Dat name
>>42414251There's something that will ensure you'll be able to match most of the other characters in the Civil War.
C, though I'd love to go A, but being a regular joe has potential.
>>42414269According to >>42414268, we'll be able to take on other supers anyway.
>>42414218>CThis sounds like the most fun.
>>42414251We just have to train enough.
>>42414329>>42414269>>42414262>>42414239Right. You’re Dean Walters. You’d normally already be hurrying to get to work, but today, you were way too sick to go to work. Even if you weren’t sick, you still would’ve rather hung yourself by your tie than go to work, seeing as you think you have the least fulfilling job on the planet, and you’re pretty sure your boss was one of the many people your girlfriend, Jenny, fucked behind your back. You call it in, and settle in for a relaxing day of doing fuck all. A problem quickly arises around midday. You’re incredibly bored, and you’re starting to get hungry. You decide a bit of fresh air never hurt anyone, and you head out into the world to get lunch. You have a decent meal, and start to head back to your home, already feeling a bit better. Maybe all this shit’s a blessing in disguise. Maybe it’s exactly the push you needed to turn your life around, and actually become somebody.Just as you’re beginning to feel positive thoughts, you hear a strange sound. Looking up, you quickly find the source of the sound. Something falling incredibly fast, right at you. You haul ass, and move out of the way, as it makes impact. You approach it slowly, and see, in the middle of a crater, a hammer.>A. Investigate further>B. Pretend you didn’t see anything and continue on your way.>C. Grab it so you can pawn it later.>D. Write-in.
>>42414356C. We full dumbass now
>>42414356AWe can still take it after investigating more.
>>42414356>B. Pretend you didn’t see anything and continue on your way.
>>42414499>>42414423>>42414385Alright, I need a tie breaker now. A, B, or C?
>>42414520A. I would investigate
>>42414529>>42414423Alright. You approach the hammer cautiously. Without touching it, you inspect it. It looks like some sort of movie prop, but it looks real, like it’s actually been used before. You swear you’ve seen it, or something like it before, but you can’t exactly place it. Just as you’re about to try and lift it, you hear a voice from behind you. It sounds muffled, like it’s coming from behind a mask, and it has some weird sort of accent. “You should give that to me, before someone gets hurt.” You turn around slowly, and you realize you’re now face to face with Doctor Doom.>A. Scream like a little bitch.>B. Run the fuck away.>C. Wildly swing the hammer at him.>D. Write-in.
>>42414591CWe'll eat his flesh and absorb his Doom powers.
>>42414591>A. Scream like a little bitch.>C. Wildly swing the hammer at him.It was not a scream. It was a kiai, designed to put all your chi into your arms for strength
>>42414591>C. Wildly swing the hammer at him.inb4 it's actually a doombot.
>>42414591A and CMaybe he'll get scared and run away.
>>42414591>C. Wildly swing the hammer at him.>D. Write-in."Hey look, it's Mr. Fantastic!"
>>42414591>D. Both A and C simultaneously
>>42414655This.But also the screaming.
>>42414639Of course it's a doombot.Why wouldn't it be a doombot?
>>42414683Because the QM isn't a lazy comic writer desperately wanking off to how great Doom is?
>>42414655Voting for this.>Mr. Fantastic I'm so sorry!
>>42414689I'm just saying, pretty much every incarnation of Doom at any given moment was a Doombot.Is there even a real Victor Von Doom/
>>42414218Wait wait, is that image official advertising for Civil War? Because damn, nice to know they're not even being a little subtle in making Stark the villain.
>>42414732Which side was which again?
>>42414629>>42414626>>42414639>>42414648>>42414655>>42414661>>42414675>>42414684You, a clever bastard, decide to trick Doctor Doom. You point behind him, and ask, “Hey, is that Mr. Fantastic?” Doom doesn’t take his eyes off of you. Having expanded your options, you decide to fall upon your tried and true tactic. You scream like a little bitch and flail with the hammer.You realize this is a stupid decision mid swing, as this hammer feels like it’s made of cheap, hollow plastic. Despite that, the hammer collides with Doom’s mask with a metallic clang, and Doom flies back. Like, he isn’t knocked back a few feet, he is thrown back a mile. You stare at the hammer you’re holding. The supervillain quickly recovers though, and flies towards you. “You surprised me. You will not get an opportunity like that again. I will pry that hammer from your cold, dead fingers.”> A. Now, we run like a little bitch.> B. Taunt Doctor Doom. How many times are you gonna get an opportunity like this?> C. Hit him again! Hit him again!> D. Write-in.
>>42414732Nah, it's a fanmade thing. Marvel would never show their moneymaker in a negative light.Also, I intend to show Iron Man at least a bit more fairly with this quest.
>>42414747C if he's flying nice and slow down the middle.Then A
>>42414747> A. Now, we run like a little bitch.
>>42414747B, C.>Hey batter batter!I suggest we style ourselves later as a Norse/Baseball hero.
>>42414747> A. Now, we run like a little bitch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC86yQAzaxg
>>42414747First C then A.
>>42414763But he's a complete idiot in CW.
>>42414770>>42414772>>42414827You swing as he flies towards you, but Doom was expecting it this time, and he dodges. You take this as your cue to take your leave. Running like hell, you feel both terrified, and more alive than you’ve felt in a good while. As you’re running you see a perimeter of soldiers, fighting a hundred more Dooms who’re closing in on you. You notice text has appeared on the side of the hammer now.“Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of... THOR”Oh fuck, that explains a lot. Doom is quickly approaching, and the perimeter is being breached by even more Dooms.> 1d100 and an action, please.

>>42415023>>42415004>>42414970>>42414968>>42414942You decide that since it’s sort of worked so far, you’re gonna keep running away. You really hope some actual superheroes will show up soon, seeing as you feel seriously outclassed, even with the hammer. You can’t even remember the name of the hammer, but you’re suddenly Thor? None of this makes any sense. You suddenly feel really grateful that you were in Track in high school, since your head start is enough to get you to the perimeter. One of the soldiers stares at you, and then at the hammer. He says something to a few more of the soldiers, and before long, another soldier comes out. You think he might be the leader? You know nothing about the army, you realize. “Son, do you know what the fuck you’re holding there?” He asks, reaching into his pocket. > A. Yes.> B. No.> C. Please help me.
>>42415085Say that not really, but sort of. Point towards the chasing army of Doombots
>>42415085> A. Yes.>It's fucking Thor's hammer and apparently I am deemed worthy to hold it.
>>42415085> A. Yes.>But im more concerned in not getting killed by Doom.
>>42415085>“Sir, do you know how to fucking use that gun? SHOOOOOOOOOT"
>>42415085> A. Yes.>I'm clearly Thor.>And that's clearly Doom behind me.
>>42415085> A. Yes> "There's Doombots behind me and I'm not invulnerable. COMING THROUGH."
>Hammer>Not being bitten by a radioactive dolphin or something
>>42415155>>42415140>>42415123>>42415122>>42415181>>42415200You shrug, “Sort of? It’s Thor’s hammer, and apparently I’m worthy enough for it? Does that really matter now though? That’s Doctor fucking Doom!” The guy nods, “Get to safety, unless you think you can help. The Avengers will be here soon.” Oh shit. The Avengers? You know Thor used to be one of them, so it probably makes sense that they’d want to interrogate you, or something, but still. Your life has turned around very quickly. > A. Stand and fight against Doom.> B. Get to safety behind the perimeter. > C. You didn’t ask for this shit, give the hammer to Doom.> D. Write-in.
>>42415223>B. Get to safety behind the perimeterBTW, OP, why no more options in the selection process? A larger variety of choices would have been nice.
>>42415239It's Bioware inspiration>Yes>Sure>Kiss passionately
>>42415223> D. Stay back, but you're not going to be found not-worthy. Something gets through the fireline? You have the fucking hammer.
>>42415239This is my first QMed Quest, I'm still getting the hang of it. I'll try to get a wider variety as we keep going. In the meantime, write-ins are encouraged, especially if you have a not shitty idea.
>>42415270...man when I first ran a quest, I made everything available. You just let things roll and spin with it, don't constraint things. That's a sure fire way to lose players.
>>42415223An inanimate object deems you worthy when even your girlfriend won't. Better prove it was right. >A
>>42415297If the QM wants to take things slow to get the hang of it that's fine no need to add things they aren't comfortable with.
>>42415223> B. Get to safety behind the perimeter.
>>42415223>> B. Get to safety behind the perimeter.

>>42415239>>42415256>>42415332>>42415341>>42415507You don’t exactly want the hammer to realize you’re just a schmuck, but you realize you have no training. You’d probably make things worse if you tried to help. You get to safety, and get ready to nail anything that makes it past the perimeter. You feel like there’s lightning in your veins. This is absolutely insane. You don’t get the best view of the battle, and you’re not sure who’s winning. There were a lot of Doombots, last you saw, but Doombots don’t have guns. You’re honestly getting a bit bored after a while, but that ends quickly, as Doombots begin pushing through the perimeter. You hold the hammer a bit tighter and get ready.>1d100 and an action.

>>42415588You feel lightning arc across your hammer as you swing it directly into the nearest Doombots head. The robot explodes, but you're barely even phased. You turn to the rest of the Doombots, "Stop. Hammer Time."The rest of the Doombots seem more than a bit hesitant, but they charge at you anyway. You let your instincts take over, and all of a sudden, you're like a fighting machine. You dispatch the remaining Doombots easily.You feel proud of yourself, but you don’t exactly get time to celebrate. The perimeter parts, and Reed Richards walks towards you. You guess the Fantastic Four showed up after all?> What do you do?
>>42415798>Hey, um. Im not going to get arrested for that right?QM I would prefer if you added a little more detail to your posts. "You dispatched the remaining doom bots easily" just doesn't sound very cinematic and sounds rushed.
>>42415798Fuck if I know.Hello?
>>42415798>Please tell me I'm not going to jail
>>42415798>"I didn't steal this I swear! It fell out of the sky and I picked it up and (Hurried explanation of events)".
>>42415955>>42416021>>42415874>>42415850>>42415854You freeze up. Reed Richards is one of the most famous people on the earth, and he’s standing right in front of you. “Um. Hi. Please tell me I’m not going to jail for this.” You’re nervous, which seems a bit odd considering you just blew up like, six Doombots, and you’re apparently the next Thor, or something. “I... didn’t steal this!” You say suddenly, realizing holding Thor’s hammer might look suspicious. You go into a stuttered explanation of events, and by the time you’re finished, Richards is just staring at you. “Right... you don’t need to worry. I’m not going to arrest you,” He offers his hand, and smiles. “I’m gonna ask that you come with me.” Although he’s smiling at you, and maintaining eye contact, he doesn’t seem to be all there. He looks as if he’s thinking of a hundred different things while he’s talking to you. It’s a bit unsettling. >A. Go with him.>B. Ask about Doom.>C. Ask what’ll happen to you.>D. Run away.>F. Write-in.
Hm suddenly becoming thor feels....oddMutants best
>>42416064>A. Go with him.what is the worst that can happen
>>42416064>C. Ask what’ll happen to you.>A. Go with him.We have some measure of trust in him. He's a hero, right?
>>42416064C and AAsk what will happen and eventually follow him.
>>42416064>>A. Go with him.>>B. Ask about Doom.
>>42416064>>A. Go with him.>>C. Ask what’ll happen to you.Most sensible answer. Most likely thing to happen is Thor gets his hammer back (unless he was killed or something) and we get sent off back to the world with a pat on the back.
>>42416064this sounds best>>42416112
>>42416120Glad to know you don't actually know anything about Marvel Civil War.
>>42416120>>42416264>>42416112>>42416092>>42416083>>42416081You can walk and talk. You follow him into the now destroyed city block. There’s no sign of Doom, which probably means he left, or something. There’s some weird car-jet thing that you realize must be the Fantasticar. As you walk, you ask Reed what’ll happen to you, coming off a bit more nervous than you wanted to. Sure, he’s a hero, and he’ll probably not do anything bad, but there’s still that part of you that’s wary. Reed ponders for a moment, stroking his chin. “Well, I suppose that depends on you. If you wanted, I suppose you could give up the hammer and go back to your usual life. Or, on the other hand, you could try to become a hero. It’s not exactly my place to say.” He enters the car, and motions for you to get in as well. “We’re heading to the Baxter Building, in New York. Shouldn’t take long. Iron Man and Captain America are already there.” Reed Richards, Captain America, and Iron Man, all in one day. You’ve never even left Oklahoma before, and now you were taking a flying car to New York. You pause. “Uh, what about Doom?” you ask, trying to act casual. Reed’s good mood seems to fade. “Gone. We thought he was trapped in Hell, but something must have set him free. Don’t worry, he’s smart enough to not go after you again.” Reed looks like he’s stopping himself from saying something else, or maybe he’s just focusing on driving. You’re not sure.>A. Stay quiet all the way to New York, try and gather your thoughts.>B. Try and make casual conversation with Reed.>C. Ask about something (what?).>D. Write-in
>>42416292I dont. And neither does dean so I am probably the best guy to play Dean.
>>42416341>C. Ask about something (what?).Shouldn't Thor have the hammer with him all the time? What happened?
>>42416341>B. Try and make casual conversation with Reed.soooo....how does an open-topped air vehicle break the sound barrier?i'm sure he'll enjoy showing off superscience.
>>42416341>C. Ask about something (what?).Where's Thor?
>>42416378>>42416390Both of these sound equally good
>>42416411we should ask this
>>42416378>>42416390>>42416411>>42416454>>42416591You look down at the hammer, and you decide it’s as good a time as any to ask something that’s been bugging you for a while. “So... where’s Thor?”Reed sighs, “He’s been missing for a couple of months now. I suppose that,” he gestures towards the hammer, “is sign enough of what we’ve feared. Tony and Steve aren’t going to be happy.” Reed’s sadness seemed to linger in the atmosphere. Something about the guy made you feel particularly bad when he was sad. You manage an apology, and then shift in your seat. Suddenly, you have an idea of how to break the ice! “Uh... how’s this thing work, anyway? The car, I mean.” Just as you expected, Reed breaks out into a long scientific explanation that you can’t even begin to understand. He references the Negative Zone, jet engines... you really have no clue what he’s talking about, but you nod and smile anyway. Reed managed to talk about science for the entire trip from Oklahoma to New York. The Baxter Building was a huge building, even in a city filled with huge buildings. Reed parked the Fantasticar, and then led you further into the building, to a weirdly modest room, where Captain America, and Iron Man were both casually sitting and drinking coffee. They both turn towards you, and Reed goes over to join them.Iron Man’s the first one to break the silence. “Seriously. Him?”Cap shoots him a glare, and he sighs, leaning back into his seat. Cap walks over towards you, clapping a hand on your shoulder. “What’s your name, son?” You can barely contain yourself, but you manage to act relatively casual, “Uh... Dean, sir. Dean Walters.” Cap nods, and takes off his mask. “I’m Steve, Dean. Nice to meet you. I’m sure you know Tony and Reed. Now, why don’t you tell us what happened, and what exactly you plan to do.” > What do you say?
>>42416717well I kinda to drop the hammer and going back to a normal life.
>>42416717> "Now, why don’t you tell us what happened, and what exactly you plan to do.”"The right thing, I hope. This hammer...When I get the chance, I'll return it to Thor myself. But until then, I'll do what he would do."
>>42416813>>42416763Alright, I need a tie breaker. Do we want Dean to return to a normal life, or continue with the hammer?
>>42416961Dean decides to continue his normal life, but does not give up the hammer because he feels like it's his now
>>42416961Continue with the hammer, obviously. Otherwise, there's no story.
>>42416813I vote for this
>>42417001>Otherwise, there's no story.If that was the case then it wouldn't be an option, we weren't railroaded into Whack-a-Doom Adventure Time
>>42417021>>42417001If you guys decided to give up the hammer, I'd probably switch to one of the other PCs I had prepared.
>>42417050Well shit, stick to the hammer like glue
>>42417050Voting for HAMMER TIME.
>>42417050Like what I like to know my other options
>>42417050This is too big. You don't belong here. Give it up
>>42417050keep the hammer, someone needs to step up
>>42417050I would rather like to play as someone else
>>42417050Alright, we'll have a vote, since I'm seeing a few dissenting opinions.> A. Keep playing as Dean, keep the hammer.> B. Play as a different character.
>>42417050keep the hammer
>>42417258> A. Keep playing as Dean, keep the hammer.
>>42417288>>42417276>>42417263>>42417259>>42417184>>42417070>>42417068You explain exactly what happened to the Captain, and after you’re done, you take a look at the hammer. "The right thing, I hope. This hammer...When I get the chance, I'll return it to Thor myself. But until then, I'll do what he would do. I intend to honor his memory.” Cap nods, “I’m sure he’d appreciate that, Dean. I can see why it thinks you’re worthy.” Iron Man stands up, looking towards you. “Okay, Dean. Although the hammer’s chosen you, we need to make sure you can take care of yourself. Once Reed’s run a few tests on you, we’ll start your training. Once that’s done with, well, you’ll be an Avenger.” Tony looks you up and down, not seeming all too impressed with your clothes. “I’ll get some Stark Tech armor for you. It won’t be magical Asgardian shit, but it’ll do it’s job and protect you.” You feel a bit overwhelmed, but you nod. It looks like you’re gonna be a superhero now. >End of Part 1I’m gonna call it here! Thanks for sticking with me through this. Sorry about the rough patches, like I’ve said, this is my first time as a QM, I intend to sort this stuff out more as we keep going. I have a twitter at https://twitter.com/UatuQMFollow for updates on when I’ll be running.I’ll stick around, so if you have any questions or criticism or anything, I’ll stick around.
>>42417320I liked it, a bit fast-paced but it's to be expected. You'll improve with practice.
>>42417320A little fast paced. You should definitely have a change of pace with the detail lacking scenes. Next thread when?
>>42417320It's got potential so when's the next thread
>>42417422>>42417429I'll try and run tomorrow. If not then, definitely during the weekend.
>>42417320Just wondering, if we're not shy of killing/removing the pc when deemed, you might want to throw in few more recruit NPCs, something we get trickle of info along the way as companions, and get to meddle slightly in their customization and background. That way, if we lose the game, we'll already have other foundations to shift our focus to, rather than start completely from the beginning in a plot that's already midway. Would also put stress in players as "yeah, make stupid shit and the character is cooked, because there are viable alternatives to show this guy can be replaceable".
>>42417475That's a great idea, I'll definitely incorporate that, thanks for the suggestion.
>>42417320I liked it.Here's hoping we don't end up with waifu shit flinging.
>>42417634Since we playing as a Thor replacement I do expect to get laid since Thor doesn't have romantic relationship he has sexual relationships
>>42417690I SAY THEE NAYAlso, does that make us Thunderstrike? Or Perun? Better that Whor, anyway.
>>42417765I don't really know my self the best I got is maybe?
>>42417690Go away. Can we have ONE THREAD without the stupid fetish shit?
