The sky is grey and unfeeling, but you can discern it from the wall of mist that waits beyond the lake, where the world trails away into nothingness. You can’t see the sun, but you know it’s out – you can feel its warmth suffusing you, lifting you up, hear the crickets and the birds and the worms of the earth awakening to its touch. Your sister sits next to you, reading. You drift, thinking of things, not thinking of things. The horns atop your head blaze with the heat of the sun – fire the colour of lapis, smoke the colour of malachite. You roll your shoulders and let your head hang back, let the sun and the moon colour your cheeks. You feel calm. “The whole world will be your enemy,” Reads your sister, her eyes roaming the pages, long white hair swaying in the breeze. “Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”The front door creaks as Joyce comes out onto the porch, and you feel everything beginning to crack and burn at its edges, and the thing beside you seems to expand – its veiny, near-translucent hands, its silver-frayed hair, its shining eyes. It looks to you and you feel incredibly, indescribably small. “Your people.”“Our people.”MY PEOPLE.
>(2/2)You feel your breath catch in your lungs as you awaken. It takes a moment for you to comprehend the softness that surrounds you fully. You’re in the bedroom to Moon Knight’s safehouse, under a warm blanket, a pillow beneath your head. Laura breathes in and out beside you, her head nestled against your shoulder.God. What a dream. You remember that afternoon. You were twelve, you think. And it was you reading. Or your mother, reading to both of you? You guess you brain couldn’t handle the fugue of time, and inserted a narrator where you couldn’t. Weird as hell, but at least you dreamt of something other than the Scar for once. Yawning, you glance down at your wrist.>Present Time: 09:33 AMLate. Later than you’d like, anyway.

Careful not to awaken Laura, you inch your way out of bed, rummaging through the clothes strewn about the floor for your phone. You can’t help but be a bit disorientated by the lack of solidity in your surroundings – compared to the station, this place is warm, soft, gentle. It feels almost alien. Finding your phone, you call the Phantom. She picks up quickly – too quickly, actually. You were hoping for a few more seconds of ringtone so you could compose yourself. “Jonathan? I trust last night went well.” “Yeah.” You answer, nodding to yourself. “It went pretty peachy. You wanted me to call you about something?” “That’s right.” You here her get up, make her way across the room she’s in. You can almost – almost tell where she is. Carpeted floor, high ceiling, low echoes. “I rather interesting job has come up. One you might be interested in.” A job? You wonder how much time you have for heavy lifting. There’s the station to sort out, and this stuff with the Triads, and –“As you know, we occasionally find ourselves contacted concerning employment that is not, strictly speaking, detective work.” She says, taking your hesitance as a que to continue. “This is one of those cases. Our contact wishes to see a particular piece of stolen property returned to him. A collector’s item, apparently. What I thought might interest you is the list of suspected thieves we’ve received from him. It reads like a who’s who of the most powerful of New York’s criminal syndicates. There are names here from the Bratva, Mr. Negative’s Triads, from Silvermane’s family… people of interest to you, it seems.” You pause, thinking. Those are people of interest. You could take this job and potentially kill two birds with one stone. >[ ] Take the job.>[ ] Don’t.>[ ] Write in.

“Who’s the client?” If you’re going into this, you think you’d like to do so with a bit more information than the Phantom seems willing to divulge. “A Mr. Wesley.” She says, in a vaguely amused tone of voice. “As you might imagine, he’s not been particularly forthcoming regarding his first name. He’s given me a means of contacting him, and that’s enough. It’s Agency policy to respect our clients’ wishes for anonymity.” There is a brief pause, and then: “When possible, of course.” Whenever possible. That sounds vaguely foreboding. “What does he want?” “A very old, very expensive item. It has a particular nature that a few of our other employees have more experience with, so you’ll be working with one of them.” She sighs. “I’d pair you with Remy, but, alas, his location remains a mystery. I don’t expect the job to be easy, but it is slated to pay rather well compared to the work you’re used to.” You do like the sound of that. >[ ] You’re in.>[ ] You have concerns [insert]. >[ ] You’re busy.>[ ] Write in.

>(1/2)What’s this feeling? It’s sorta like… déjà vu. “This thing, it’s not… it’s not some old tablet thing, is it?” The line is quiet for a moment. Then: “…Jonathan, we did agree that you would disclose the full nature of your abilities when this partnership began. If you’ve been hiding an ability to read minds, that would”– “No, no, I can’t read minds.” You interject hurriedly. “I just, uh, took on a similar job, not long ago.” “Oh?” There’s a purr in those syllables. “That is interesting.” Yeah. You’d say so. Still, it’s an opportunity. “Yep. I’ll take it, though. The job.” “Excellent.” You here a pen clicking in the background. She’s writing something down? “I’ll be in touch. We’ll just be doing a little work at the office to narrow down this list to a few likely names and addresses.” “Cool.”
>(2/2)She hangs up, and you almost let yourself collapse back on the bed, a long sigh emptying your lungs. Ancient Egyptian tablets, huh? You guess they’re in vogue nowadays. Either that, or it’s the same piece of rock, and it’s been stolen away again. You hope not – that would increase the likelihood that Creeper is involved with the client. Though, that said, some small part of you does get a kick out of the idea of Creeper unknowingly financing you through the Agency. You put it out of your mind and head into the living room, where Moon Knight’s bag full of goodies lies abandoned on the carpet. On closer inspection, you find that most of the tools are standardized. There are these stark white fighting sticks that go with each outfit – two to each. You notice a tiny switch on the side of one, and push it down, finding yourself distinctly unsurprised when an arc of electricity flares up along the weapon’s tip. One set has no built-in taser, but you’re willing to bet that it’s conductive. Yours, probably. There are a collection of similar, slightly thicker items – a little experimentation with them reveals them to be grappling hooks (and costs Moon Knight’s fakey apartment a lamp). It’s cool stuff. >[ ] Head back to the Scar. >[ ] Head out to get food.>[ ] Just rest for a while.>[ ] Go check out de papers. >[ ] Write in.

>>43353729she's has faked being asleep a few times so JJ wakes her up by kissing her
>>43353677>>43353712I think it's JJ's, since if Moon Knight knew about JJ's friends' powers, then he would have added a personal weapon for each person.

It doesn’t take much to rouse Laura from slumber. While you need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the waking world, she seems almost grateful to be awake and alert. You guess she just doesn’t like feeling vulnerable. You make a promise of hot cocoa before hefting up Moon Knight’s bag and making your way out. The morning would be grey if it weren’t red. It must’ve rained for a while at night, because you can taste the leftovers of it in the air. Puddles linger in a few of the cracked pavestones that dot the streets.Being without a shirt, you have to stay out of sight. It’s not exactly hard for you, but it does mean that you can’t really buy anything. Laura picks up a hot drink and some falafels at a nearby stand while you pilfer a few copies of today’s papers. You’d leave a few dollars, but honestly, you’re not sure you can afford to.The headlines don’t surprise you. “MUTANT SQUATTERS INFEST OUR CITY.” “MUTANTS AMONG US.” “MUTIES IN THE RUINS.”That last one is particularly galling. Not unexpected, though – you wouldn’t expect much else from Murdoch and his minions. You wouldn’t say you’re seeing full-blown panic yet, but most papers are focusing on the apparent failure of authorities to register you and your friends. It’s nice to see a few articles questioning how things have been allowed to come to this, but they’re few and far between. The real focus seems to be on criticizing everyone – from Mutant Control to the NYPD – for not responding quickly enough to the situation.

Well, shit.You’re tempted to find a nice, big brick and tape some dumb message to it, like “register this!” or whatever, and then just chuck it through someone’s window. But that wouldn’t really solve anything, would it? It’d just convince one more gullible soul that ‘dem muties be the werk ah da devil Cletus! Fuck these people. Sometimes you wish the river would just tear itself free and rush through the city. Drown every single fucking one of them. You head back to the Scar, leaving a trail of discarded newspapers in your wake, each one less encouraging than the last. That Clark guy wrote a good article, you guess. He brought up that the Red Cross was there an’ stuff. You noticed that most of them were avoiding that detail. There is a tangible sense of tension at the edge of the Scar. People look worried. You spy more than one crowd of flatscans that have taken it upon themselves to roam the border, supposedly to keep any meddlin’ muties out of their gosh darn homes and in their gosh darn places.Disgusting. Eventually, you trail your way into the station, setting the duffel bag down in a long, exaggerated motion. You just feel tired after all that shit. You get a few stares. It’s Layla that comes up to you first, asking what’s in the bag and how much of it is edible. “In a bit, yeah?”>[ ] Talk to people, see how stuff is going.>[ ] Call together your friends, go through Moon Knight’s stuff with them.>[ ] Try to get everyone’s attention.

Hey Crusty, can JJ eyes become something like the Gravitational Beam Emitter?He already got FORCE EYE LASERS.
>>43354406>>43354449Just add a superweapon that forces them to leave the island alone. Problem solved.
>>43354478>Ain't no one bothering Island in middle of Atlantic.
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Morlocks_(Earth-616)We don't necessarily need to leave. We just need to find that Giant Cave under Manhattan. There's enough room there for the mutants of the scar.Green Finger can amplify Chlorophyll. So if we can't make enough food for everyone right now we can after getting Green Finger.
>>43354502And they would have accident at sea. And we have a new bout, that only need some cleaning, paint job, and name change.Only thing we really need is missile defense system. I recommend becoming a colony of Latveria, and asking Dr.Doom for one in exchange for fish and plants, and whatever exports. If we green thumb that shit we have some good banana republic. (or weed, tobacco, or whatever we decide to grow. Mutant weedbacco maybe?)
They retconned HER being a mutant
>>43354295Hey Crusty, why not just get a bike helmet? It can be filled with gagdets, give head protection and filled the motif of BIOMEGA/motorcycles.
>>43354478new to Marvel comics, I see.
>>43354537Eye lasers of that magnitude would be like, T4 or something.
>>43354604Problems with going too deep is the same as the island plan.If you seperate too much from the human population they can send quiet and special ops after you.No, what we need to do is act like the gangs and mafia do. Insinuate ourselves amoung the populance.
>>43354604That my plan for staying at NYC. Make an underground NYC for mutants.we can take internet wires, electricity (assuming we don't get a mutant to give us that.) and safe shelter.>>43354646We really need to reach level 5 on eye lasers. They are the strongest weapon we have.
>>43354619Because JJ has horns, anon, and a bike helmet with two massive holes in it just looks retarded.
>>43354347Why haven't we been doing this the entire time!Seriously. We have some heavy hitters in our group. We should already be combat ready.
>>43354679Fucking Horns. I wish they were gone. Messing with helmets, not that a unforgivable sin. They also make living on the city harder.
>>43354693>>43354347This isn't an army. its a group of scared children, most them came here because they thought it would be safe.
>>43354693I keep suggesting we train Layla, cause with her we already have 50 armed people.
>[X] Call together your friends, go through Moon Knight’s stuff with them.>[X] Try to get everyone’s attention. You’ve got some stuff to say.Writing. While cooking. Be patient.
>>43354726>>43354693I really, really don't want JJ to just become another Magneto or Xavier. Do we really need to be training child soldiers? I mean sure, if people come forward who want to fight, that's one thing. But let's not get carried away and start asking Layla to turn into a one girl firing squad.
>>43354726She should be in school and in home that can provide her normal life.But I fear at this point she would benefit more from combat training.
>>43354779>>43354798Shits gonna hit the fan at some point. It's not a matter of "if". It's "when".And they'll need to be ready.
>>43354715Yeah but there giant fucking robots sending mutants into freaking camps that we don't know are they doing. for all we know they gasing them or doing experiments.>>43354779cause giant robots want to kill or take you into death camps (well, not death but you wish you were death most likely)
>>43354779>I really, really don't want JJ to just become another Magneto or Xavier.I know, right? JJ could do a way better job than those two.
>>43354798We should at least take advantage of Layla's Parallel learning ability. She can learn to fight from Laura, medical stuff from the new girl and sign language (to talk to Kevin). All at the same time.She can literally 50 different books in the time it takes a normal person to read one.
>>43354870hey Crusty, who wins? A sentinel, or a berserk evangelion?
>>43354878We could buy some middle school text books and make her read them. We don't want her falling behind other kids.
>>43354859>>43354870Yes, I know this. But there's a difference between training people who want to be trained and to fight, and pressuring people to fight who may not want to. Layla is what, like 14? And we're seriously talking about turning her into our personal army to gun people down en masse?Not everyone has to be able to fight. There are other ways to contribute to this community, so long as those who can and are willing to fight are good enough to defend those who can or will not.
>>43354892depends on the sentinel, I'd wager.
>>43354859Shit that can be dealt with so long as we stick close to the human population.Then its just normal guys with guns, easy to deal with. If the exclusion zone gets raided we make it costly as sin while everyone evacuates, wait for them to fuck off and then move right back in.Meantime we need to save cash and buy realestate in the zone while our presence devalues it.
>>43354892berserk evangelion. Evangelions are fucking huge compare to sentinels and evas got AT fields.
>>43354892Don't evas generate AT fields? No way for a Sentinel to get through that, and Berserk evas are fucking ludicrous with the kind of destruction they're capable of.
>>43354981We don't go back to the fucking exclusion zone if there sentinels. We leave.Why the fuck are we still in the states anyway? We really need to leave this place. If you were a jew in the start of ww2 and you knew hitler was about to gas you.What would you do?
>>43355007Yeah, but don't Sentinels have all kinds of energy weapons to help overload that sort of field?
>>43355017Wonder how I wandered into an alternate reality where Hitler was preparing to gas Jews. :^)
>>43355017Increase the price of Gas.
>>43355017Listen numbnutts, we stick to humans so they CANT send in sentinals is the entire premise of that post.Staying in the states is up in the air. As soon as you congregate any large number of mutants outside of populations of humans the US of A cares about you have serious problems.
>>43354953Middle school history text books tend to have each chapter be about a completely different time period. Since you don't need to read chapter 1 to understand chapter 2 she can read them all at the same time.Completing a year of school in a few days.
>>43355017Sentinels guard the borders, dummy.
>>43354953Don't buy.Send her to library or something. Seriously.Also evacuating the more noticeable weaker or out of control mutants is not a bad idea.
>>43355036AT Fields are not your average force fields. They can be penetrated with man-made weapons, but it would have to be some serious firepower from a King Big Dick Sentinel.
Ten bucks says that our T3 unlock is the Sentinel Invasion, where JJ gets the shit kicked out of him, Laura gets crucified and he turns into a giant blue crystal space dragon jesus JJ and proceeds to unload. Typhon gets an erection.
>>43355082Yeah, I know. But they can be penetrated with mundane weaponry. I'm not a fan of the comics, so I have no idea what sort of "GO FUCK YOURSELF" the big purple fuckers are capable of.
>>43355061Isn't there a doctor doom embassy to help us in NYC?
So, does the armor look like this with a longcoat and the mask from earlier?
Seem to remember it's actually quite difficult to move across even state-lines because of mutant control. I mean, we can go invisible to that'd help, but there's probably Sentinels that detect us or something.In all honesty, just because we can fight back, doesn't mean we should.And you have to worry what they'll send after Sentinels. I mean they sent War-Machine after Joyce, and all she was doing was murdering racists.
>>43355124>implying JJ is not DOOM.
>>43355128>Seem to remember it's actually quite difficult to move across even state-lines because of mutant control.Now, the best way to use that Geokinetic rather than being retarded and making an island would be to create tunnels under state lines in order to get out of New York.
>>43355128>I mean they sent War-Machine after Joyce, and all she was doing was murdering racists.she went after war-machine he was guarding a prison van
>>43355124The mutants gathering to line up would be broken or attacked.
>(1/2)You let yourself slump down at the entrance to the station. Around you, there is a collective buzz of activity. It’s never quiet here now. Someone’s always chatting to someone. Someone’s always snoring. Someone’s always trying to get a fire started. You sigh. “Hey, Layla. You mind grabbing the others for a minute?” The cocks her head to one side, circling the bag suspiciously. “Why?” “It’s a surprise.” There is a moment of consideration on her face, where she’s rather obviously considered one-Layla-mobbing you, but eventually she shrugs, splitting off in several directions while one of her remains behind to be an annoying little gnat. One by one, she finds them. They sit down in a circle near the stairs, Tyler looking extremely uncomfortable, while his sister looks… present. There is a long silence. “Okay, so…” How does this go, exactly? Do you tell them a masked psychopath got you a bunch of hurty toys to smack people around with and, gee golly, you’re just itching to share it all with your buds? Do you tell that that said masked psychopath knew about them? “…I got some stuff for you guys.” You unzip the duffel bag to a chorus of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ – most of them originating from one or more copy of Layla. “…The hell is all this?” Says Noriko, her voice incredulous, as she fishes out one of the masks. “We’re superheroes now?”
>>43355128>and all she was doing was murdering racists.Which is, y'know, still fucking illegal. And she wasn't just murdering them, she was painting the room with their viscera. I think that kind of justifies some excessive force.
>>43355172making an island out of nothing will bring alerts.>>43355197JJ goes alone and makes a deal to safely transfer all the mutants in the zone out of USA and into DOOM country.DOOM pull some bullshit with his technology and magic to safely move everyone out of the usa in the zone.problem solve. it's fucking doom. you think usa military mooks gonna stop doom?
>(2/2)“…Doesn’t look too superhero-y.” Notes Lucas. “We’re not superheroes.” You confirm, noticing that a few heads are turning your way. People around the station are wondering what’s up. “This stuff is armoured, though, and it’ll protect our identities. And we might need it soon.” “Looks a little grim.” Says Gaby, withdrawing the slightly elongated mask with the thin, straight horns, pressing it to her face experimentally. “…How do I look?” “Spooky.” Says Mildred, before you can reply, the word seeming out-of-place on her lips. She’s still looking elsewhere – you’re not sure her eyes and have been on Gaby once. “Spook, spooks…” Another brief silence settles in the wake of her reply. You cough awkwardly. “Look, this stuff is weird, obviously, but I’d recommend getting familiar with it. The Scar is getting dangerous. The city is getting dangerous.” You pause. “People are getting dangerous. We can use this stuff. Now…” Deep breath. >Leadership Check>no set DC>+2 modifier

>>43354892How is this even a question? A non-berserk EVA would wreck any Sentinel short of Nimrod or Bastion. And even then, the sheer size difference and disparity in strength/durability is not favourable to the Sentinel.

>>43355267kekKarma.You know we should ask political protection from Dr.Doom, and have him expose the American horrible treatment of mutants. Have him speak up about it in some united nations meeting or something, and maybe offer asylum to mutants.Just saying. We could make the mutant revolution happen, and develop the country into blooming paradise. Plant growth, weather control, as much super strength as needed, access to other dimension resources, teleportation transport, free electricity...Heck we don't need to even ask that from doom. Any publicity seeking, well equipped country do that.>>43355266If doom want's to destroy America, he can just atomic bomb it or something. He doesn't need foot solders.
The snowball is a good roll. The shiba is JJ.
>>43355335You miss the point.Just because he aint at war with america does not mean an agency like shield will not fuck with his stuff, and mutants end up being thrown into the firing line.

>>43355553So you plan on one round?
>>43355497Hence PR campaign. Get one paper with all the news and with OUR viewpoint and we might just break even enough not to be run out of the city. At least try that route before you go with doom, who while admittedly bro like at times, is still the become standing army route.
>>43355555Nice get, but are you 1930's America? A rose is a rose.
>>43355555Oh, then we just wish for death, that so much better.Not by much. We really need to leave the states.>>43355575At least have an evacuation plan if everything to shit.One that goes to doom cause state lines are being defended by sentinels and likely the military USA army.
>>43355555Yes, because experiments they do to mutants there are so much better than death./sarcasm
>>43355574more or less, my group goes pretty fast, we could probably knock out one and a half, maybe 2 in that time...
>>43355610We have one. Everyone runs into the old abandoned railway tunnels and from there into the sewer lines.I agree on practice it though.We could have it so that when we all run, everyone meets up at a designated place and then we march on the latveria embassery before formally asking for assylum.

Striding over to the fire, you lift up a pair of pots resting beside the stove, hefting them over the head. Steeling yourself, you slam them together – gently, at first, so as not to turn them both into hunks of useless junk – once, twice, thrice. The sound echoes through the station, each collision louder and sharper than the last. Slowly but surely, all eyes turn in your direction. You feel your breath freeze in your lungs. Your stomach twists like fire and ice, telling you that you’re not for here, that you should be somewhere else, somewhere dark. Invisible. You push through it, and clear your throat loudly, letting the pots fall to your sides. “Hey, everyone.” >first things first>[ ] The situation outside the Scar. >[ ] Discuss getting everyone fit and able.>[ ] Discuss keeping everyone fed.>[ ] Discuss keeping everyone safe. >[ ] Write in.

They’re looking at you. A few weeks ago, you’d have withered under this kind of scrutiny. Curled up and died like some dumb tiny animal. You feel bigger now, though – hell, you are bigger. And more than that – more of something else. “I figure we need to have a little chat.” You say, slowly, doing your best to affect a neutral tone. “We’ve got to share this space now, so we need to watch out for one another. And there need to be rules.” You spot a girl near one of the pillars roll her one remaining eye. Ugh, ignore, ignore… “Fist, though, we gotta talk about outside. New York is starting to realize we’re here.” There are whispers. You wait a moment for them to die down. “People are getting scared. Angry, probably. Could be that soon we’ll be seeing some kind of action against us.” You trail off, thinking. While you’re arranging your thoughts, a young woman near the side of the tracks, her pale skin dotted with traces of glowing blue-green crystal, raises her voice: “Okay.” Her voice is curt, serious. She doesn’t sound especially scared. “What do we do about that?” >[ ] There should be people mapping out the subway/sewers, so we can leave through them in a pinch. >[ ] There should be people looking for somewhere else you guys can crash in case of such an event.>[ ] You guys need to prove that the city is better off with you there.>[ ] Write in.

You kind of want to say that the flatscans need you guys and you need to prove it – because it’s pretty much true, if the Avengers and all the other supertypes stay gone. But you’re becoming increasingly convinced that nothing short of Jesus himself descending to preach the merits of mutanthood could prove that. And even then, it’s shaky.“First things first, we need to start mapping out these tunnels.” You’ve been meaning to do this for a while, actually – ever since you first arrived here. “We need to know where we can go if something happens. The sewers, the subways – they connect everything in this city. But they’re useless to us if we don’t know where they lead. Knowing where we can go and where we can’t gives us more space, too.” People nod. Most just stare, though. Should you say you’re looking for volunteers? A hand rises. It’s some skinny, pale creature of a young man with dark red eyes and shaggy black hair. His wrists are circled with tattoos depicting abstract, vaguely Nordic dragons – Jormungandr and the like. Half goth, half metal. Goth metal? Is that a thing? Your sis would’ve known. “Yeah?” “Yeah, so, like…” He has a surprisingly deep voice. “…I’ve gone for a few walks down there. Loads of tunnels. I think me an’ Blake wouldn’t mind looking around…”You have absolutely no idea who ‘Blake’ is. This guy just made shit a lot easier for you, though. “Great.” You pause, thinking. “It’d be great if we could get a few people together to chart a section of the tunnels every day. Anyone who wants to help can help.”Another hand goes up. This time it’s a tanned girl with long, thin horns. “Uh, I dunno where she is, but Alani said she heard mumbling back there. I think there might be more people living down here or something.” That is concerning. “Good to know…” >[ ] Stop to organize this.>[ ] Go on to another topic.

By the way, can we spam the police with reports of gangs roaming the perimeter of the scar and threatening normal people?Could end up dispersing our immediate problem all by themselves.

>>43356858Just ignore it. The person is either an idiot or in love with his own "brilliant" plan to the point he isn't actually examining its problems.
>>43356835One reporter.Those great cops you want to get statements from shot us because we were a mutant.You're thinking like a reasonable person. Not like a sensationalist.>>43356854It's not going to matter. It's just going to translate to increased gang activity and arrests near those mutants.
>>43356858JJ knows this town and can easily hire some of the teens in the scar who arn't mutants but with us anyway (we know at least one). Or normal hobos. Just pad them some cash and walla, willing statement givers.

“Okay, so, if you want to help with the tunnel stuff, see me after this.” Man, this feels weird. You feel weird. “Second up, food.” That gets a bit more response. You thought it might. “Right now, we’re scraping by. I’m betting a few of you are eating with the guys up top, in their tents. That’s fine. But we need to be able to make sure we can do without them. Which means we need to get our hands on our own food.” You can see this turning into an issue. You can’t feed thirty or so people by your lonesome. What if the Red Cross guys just up and leave one day? Move on to the next hot humanitarian crisis? Where does that leave most of these people? “I’ve got a… a way to grow stuff quickly.” You think you’ll decline to mention the blood. At least for now. “I’ve been trying to grow food down here, but I need more light. If any of you can help with that, it’d be appreciated. Other than that…” >[ ] Until you’ve got something self-sustaining running, people may have to steal.>[ ] Until you’ve got something self-sustaining running, people should rely on the Red Cross.

Before thinking of stealing, we need to know those tunnels, otherwise we send people out to face the anti-mutant gangs prowling around us. Since no one else seems to have a plan to deal with them we might as well avoid them alltogether.
>>43357001That area is going to be in the news if you like it or not. Its more a question of how to try twist the publicity.
>>43357013>You spy more than one crowd of flatscans that have taken it upon themselves to roam the border, supposedly to keep any meddlin’ muties out of their gosh darn homes and in their gosh darn places.What part of that says gangs?
>>43357059Large groups of people roaming around the boarders together being angry and shouty.Pretty much translate to a gang of people to a police officer. Or a mob. Either way, its still something you want to disperse before it gets violent.
“…the charity people are your best bet at getting a hot meal right now. They seem alright”– if a little cold –“and they haven’t given us any reason to distrust ‘em, so for now they’re an option. What isn’t an option is going out and taking shit like the Corsairs are doing. That is gonna bring Mutant Control down on us like a fucking hammer.” You pause, looking out across the assembled faces. Some look tellingly ashamed at the mention of thievery. You don’t doubt that mostly everyone here has stolen once or twice – just to survive, if nothing else. Some of you have done worse. But you don’t want to shit where you eat, and right now, this is where you eat.“I promise, I am trying to get something self-sustaining up.” You say. “Until then, Red Cross are good enough.” Nobody says anything.

I gotta say, you guys are surprisingly chill about the 19 or something mutants we live now with. If it were me, I'd be paranoid as fuck about one of them being a plant for Creeper, the Facility or any of the major crime syndicates. Or all of them, there's plenty of muggas to go around without needing double or triple agents.
>>43357481Unless one of those shitheads is a powerful mutant that we can keep away from the other, stupid gangs.
>>43357500>>43357481As much as I agree that all these options are time sensitive, we need to patrol to keep watch on these anti mutant mobs. It's a precarious situation we're in, and we need to be mindful of them
>>43357513We could ask Laura to keep an eye on them. She's probably good at sniffing out spies and shit.

This feels like it’s almost over. Like you don’t have much left to say. Then again:“Last but not least, we need to keep each other safe. And that means learning to control our powers.” There are more than a few testy stares shared at the mention of that. You don’t doubt that most of you have no clue how your powers really work. Most of these guys have probably been too busy surviving to sit down and get a grip on everything. “We can’t have people just shooting whatever everywhere. You learn to control your powers or you leave.” Harsh, but fair. You’re not dying because some lazy fuckwit couldn’t be bothered to get a check on his eye lasers or his exploding spit or whatever the shit it is these people can do.Breathing in deeply, you move on:“Some of you probably know about the attack a while back. And about the weirdos running around the Exclusion Zone, peddling filth.” You put emphasis on that last word. You swear you almost hear your voice crackle, like fire. “There are a lot of people trying to put a stop to that stuff, and we could always use more help. If you want to help, it’ll mean getting fit and learning to handle yourself. Feel up to it? You can talk to…” You lean back slightly, gesturing to your friends.“…Noriko about it.” She shoots you a surprised look. You look over the assembled faces. A few of them look restless, like they’re waiting for you to finally sit down and release them. Others – others look eager. Eager for what, you can’t say. “That’s it. That’s all.” You feel your chest finally deflate. >Another Leadership Check>no set DC>+2 modifier

>[X] Investigate the possibility of neighbors in your tunnels.Writing.>>43357743Jesus Christ this AMV is still up? I think I was at uni when this was made.
>>43357751As long as its about Hobo stuff. Scavenging and dumpster diving and how to make yourself get accustomed to you own smell.
>>43357750Yes, it is.
how long till one of the other girls in the tunnels not our gang; makes a move on JJ which piss of Laura
>>43357675>[ ] Talk to Laura about setting up a training regiment for those interested.
>>43357799Unless JJ's speech had a positive impact on her, I think Callisto will try to usurp JJ somehow.Or challenges him for leadership of the gang.
>>43357781Yeah, I know right? I was showed that shit years ago.
>>43357599>such LeadershipTruly, we are the King
>>43357799I don't think Laura would be pissed (maybe irritated), and I don't think any of us would have JJ return such advances, so she wouldn't have much to be angry about.
Double issue tonight by the way.Prepare.
>>43357785Yes, that's the idea.Like I said a lot of people there don't actually know how to survive alone on the streets. In a worst case scenario where everyone scatters, a sizable amount of our population would be fucked.
>>43357751Honestly that's pretty long-term. I'd want to squirrel further into the tunnels before we consider school.
>>43357843>Double issue tonight by the way.
>>43357605Anon, JJ isn't qualified for ANYTHING. Except crack bitching, obviously.
>>43357843My Body is ready
>>43357843My dick is ready.
>>43357843Yer a gent, Crusty.
>>43357866Hey now, JJ's probably qualified enough to be a concert pianist.
>>43357866He's qualified for teaching how to hobo.
>>43357843I love you Crusty. Almost as much as Laura loves JJ ass.
>>43357865That man looks extremely depressed or like he's in pain. What the hell happened to him?
>>43358008Don't worry, he's got plenty of painkillers.
We can use rats to flesh out dangerous areas and find neighbours.
>>43357866By qualified I mean barely professionally trained in martial arts and stealth, and that carries over from Laura who is much more capable
Don't forget to sit out in the sun with our wings out for a little bit so we have some charges for our raid on the Triads or our job
>>43358046That's a good point. We can ask them about those guys.
>>43358008If that's who I think it's supposed to be, his wife and child got murdered and then he went on several rampages where he suffered massive wounds and trauma but still somehow survived.
>>43358046We need to find the biggest, baddest rat around and have him go around bullying other rats to fan out and give us the deets on the underground.
>>43358086What comic?>>43358028Self medicating is bad.
Maybe there’s a tangible change in the air. Maybe it’s all just you.Either way, you’re relieved as all hell when you feel their attention gradually turn away from you. The sudden flood of chatter fills your ears and for a moment you can pretend that it’s all Dutch to you, pretend that you can’t pick out the whats and the hows and the nitty grittys from their whispered words. You slump back beside the fire, letting its warmth roll over you. You feel a soft hand touch yours, and close your eyes as Laura’s fingers etch their way along yours, across the border of your knuckles, up to your wrist. “Thanks.” You don’t get long to savour the feeling. Soon enough, you find yourself watching the gothmetal creature from before approaching you, a spring in his step. He pauses for a moment when he notices Laura and her enhanced tactical handholding, but apparently, his mutant power is being unable to fully read the mood, and he perseveres. “Hey, dude.” “Hi.” Dude. Dude sounds a lot less dudesome when other people say it. “So, like, I was talking to a few others about the tunnel stuff…” “Right.” You sigh under your breath, heaving yourself up. “I was hoping to get on with that, actually. If there is someone down here with us we should know about ‘em. What’s your name?” “Vlad.” There is no fucking way that is this guy’s name. He sounds like he’s from Oregon or somewhere. >[ ] You and Vlad here can handle it.>[ ] Take some people with good senses with you. >[ ] Take some people with goof punches with you.>[ ] Look for this ‘Alani’ person, see if they can help.>[ ] Take [specify] with you.>[ ] Write in.

>>43358136Go play Max Payne.
>>43358008get the fuck out of my 4chan.

It occurs to me that now we can talk to animals we can troll the ever loving hell out of the folks surrounding the exclusion zone.Mass pidgeon bird shit bombings anyone?
>>43358227actually taking a pencil and paper along with the rest of our supplies would be a good idea.
>>43358260now thats smart and funny
>[X] Take some people with good senses with you. >[X] Look for this ‘Alani’ person, see if they can helpWriting.
>>43358281>>43358275>>43358260Yeah, make them not want to be around us because it's so disgusting and embarrassing.Works.
>>43358260>Mass pidgeon bird shit bombings anyone?So business as normal, then?
"I have a plan. I need several tons of bird feed"
>>43358286Aren't our senses technically the best? The radar sense should put us in a league of our own.
>>43358332You mean birdshit.Unless we get other animals in on it. Cat shit stinks pretty bad, doesn't it?
>>43358260Don't overdo with the mass part taught. They should not be able to tell that someone is controlling the birds.
>>43358363>Cat shit stinks pretty bad, doesn't it?I dunno, but I think chicken shit smells the worst.But unless JJ can somehow get chickens around, that's not an option.
>>43358260I support this.
>>43358364Sure, but this is a thing that now needs to happen.We bribe pidgeons with bird feed, get them to regularly shit on people patroling around the scar consistantly.
>>43358387if it's stink you're after, I'm fairly certain we could harvest skunk spray safely if we really wanted to.it'd smell bad enough to be pretty useful in combat tbh
We should also maybe get a commando squad of racoons to work for us.
And we shall call this land...UNDERMOUNTAIN
>>43358439We are super sensitive. As is Laura. Bad plan.
Page 10 ho.
>>43358470No, Neon York.
>>43358548And we'll call you the Neon Dork.
>>43358470JJ's theme song shall be "In the Hall of the Tunnel King"
>>43358570The Prince of Dorkness?
>>43358663The Dim Lord.
>>43358594But how can we be King of the Tunnel and King of the Forest at the same time?
>>43358739By bringing the forest to the tunnels.
>>43358739Underground forest.Or a forest of weed.
>>43358739It's a tunnel forest.
>>43358796Are you the underdork?
Well, you guess he does look sorta Dracula. If Dracula were reincarnated as an American teen with parental issues. You wonder if it’s a mutant thing. Maybe he has fangs? You don’t see any, but maybe they pop out or something? “Alright then, Vlad, let’s get this together.” You could ask for his real name. But who cares? You guys might as well be vampires anyway, living down here in the gloom. If he wants to play pretend, more power to him. Maybe it makes things more tolerable. “You don’t happen to know that Alani chick, do you…?” It doesn’t take long. A few people are itching to stretch their legs, and people don’t take much convincing when they’re like that. Soon enough you’re waiting at the end of one of the tunnels with Laura and Gaby beside you, the latter humming softly to herself – something you vaguely recognize actually. Orchestral, maybe. Mildred volunteered too, oddly enough, and most of the time you spent preparing was actually more about her convincing her brother that she’d be okay. She perches along the tracks, her unblinking eyes seeming to perfectly reflect the darkness of the tunnel. “Heya, dudes!” You turn around at the sound of Vlad’s voice, your eyes immediately straying to his companion. Alani – Alani Ryan, as she introduces herself – is a thin shadow of a girl with a figure like a bunch of sticks and a healthy tan to her skin. Her face and much of her arms are covered in strange, twisting patterns of discoloured flesh. You’re willing to bet they extend all the way under her torn hoodie and her jeans, across the better part of her body. She seems… shy, pretty much. But she thought to bring a flashlight, which is extremely cool. “Right, then.” You hop down from the side of the platform, onto the tracks. The dark of the tunnel yawns out in front of you. “Let’s do this.”
>>43358834No, im the pidgeon shitter.Designer of operation Shitstorm.
>HMQ 138: END>Congratulations! You laid down the law!>Congratulations! You met VLAD.>Congratulations! You met ALANI RYAN. This seems like a good point to call this thread. I’ll be back in an hour or so with HMQ 139: urban explorer edition.By the by, in case people didn’t see it on twitter: http://pastebin.com/v5THNvfzIt'll be added to the OP post next thread.
>>43358887Still sort of upset Noriko didn't become the waifu.
>>43358887Add Tyler and Mildred to the Stats pastebin.
>>43358913Eh, Noriko would not have gotten as entangled senses wise as Laura has. Those two are probably so closely connected to each other on a senses level its hard to really conceive about it.
>>43358887Favourite real heroes are Captain America and Kamen RiderWhich Kamen Rider?
Alani Ryan Age: 16 Powers: Disruptive phasing.>phasingBest girl.
Since I haven't been here since it happened, and there's a break now. Worst possible fucking codename out of all of the choices. Holy shit you guys really shit the fucking bed on that one.
>>43359027welcome to the club.Threadly reminder Vagrant is a shit name without anything added to it.
>>43359011>anyone other than Laura being a best
>>43359047It's just really lame. Both edgy and dull at the same time.
>>43359011We should hang around her, to get phasing. Just saying.
>>43359011look out Laura>>43359027it won by one vote13-12-11I hope it gets atrophied
>>43358978Lucas has a thing for originals. But V3 and Stronger definitely exist. Japan has a ton of Riders running around.
>>43359100no i hate you phasing fags so god damn much since you twats infected other quest with your faggoty
>>43359134Its not even the actual phasebros anymore anon, just people taking a joke too far.
>>43358887>>43359011PHASING IS NOW A WAIFU, YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY LAURA, SHE'S COMING RIGHT THROUGH YOU!
>>43359124>But V3 and Stronger definitely exist.Cool.What about Big Hero 6?
>>43359118I wish that we could have a 1 on 1 vote between the top 2. There's no way that 6 of those 11 like Vagrant. It is so bad.
>>43359134You shouldn't even let it phase you bro.
>>43359124I am so glad to hear that. Here's hoping for Kamen Rider Gaim. ...however, I'm not sure how all the bad guys, monsters and other shit works with Marvel. Aren't there several world-ending threats Kamen Riders face?
>>43359227>Aren't there several world-ending threats Kamen Riders face?And the Avengers don't?Bruh.
>>43359157Phasing 3somes are awesome tho.
>>43359266I mean, no I get it. I'm just surprised we never hear about the shit Kamen Rider deals with.
>>43359286I would be okay dying like that.
>>43359286It's too bad he didn't die there.Are we going to save him from being shot by some guy in the street?
>>43359156>>43359134It's okay guys, this joke is just a phase. It'll be phased out soon.
>>43359298They probably don't hear about the shit Kamen Rider deals with, either.Hell, people think Supes is a comic book character in verse, he could be very real in verse however.It's like how there are thing going on in Russia right now that are years ahead of us, but we don't know about it. Similarly there is shit in the U.S. that is leagues ahead of something they have, but they don't know it. Even in the modern world where information flows like a plague in a whorehouse we still don't hear about everything.tl;dr who fuckken knows?
>>43359328That "some guy" was the Punisher trying to shoot Captain America (for some reason).Peter took the bullet for Cap.
>>43359350I know. I was making a joke. Seriously though I would take a bullet for that guy.
>>43359373Not for Ultimate Cap.Mainline Cap? Definitely.And HMQverse Cap is Mainline Cap with Ultimate Cap's powers.
>>43359286wellll hello there. I was wondering what to do during this break.
>>43359389Nah, fuck Cap. I was talking peter.
>>43359286Two chicks at the same time. Nice.Where's that from?
>>43359437>fuck CapI wish.JJ x Cap would be nice.>I was talking Peter.We can just heal him.
>>43359340Wait, Supes could be real? I mean, I guess he could, parallel realities and shit. Maybe he's here, but keeping his head down because he realizes his popularity and fictional status? I mean, Supes can be stealthy, he's unbelievably fast and hard to see with the naked eye.
>>43359449Spidercest 5 (it starts in Spidercest 4) By Tracy Scops, and Bayushi
>>43359465Well, we met the spectacled reporter Kent recently, so maybe?Coincidence, possibly, but always could be the actual Superman. Never know with comic stuff.
>>43359511You know I bet he would. No one would believe a guy named Clark Kent is actually Superman. They'd probably give him shit about it, but never suspect. Reminds me of the Secret Identity comic where that was actually a thing.
>>43359749Thread up. Get in there.
