The United States has collapsed. Though the Second Civil War ended more than 2 decades ago, a state of Cold War remains between the independent alliance of the Great Lakes Union, the Republic of Cascadia, Republic of Texas and Atlantica on one side and the Fundamentalist juggernaut of the North American Coalition on the other. As the American successor states fight over the scraps that remain of the American Dream, new powers have risen to take the place of what was once the greatest nation on earth. Corporations now have more power than Governments and hire freelance operatives called Ronin to ruthlessly nail each other through covert ops in cut-throat competition.Welcome to the Sprawl, ami. You are Rochelle Rossi. Part time grey-hat hacker, part-time Warez dealer, political activist and feline hybrid. Living in the Fundie Wonderland of the North American Coalition has never been easy for someone like you. Hybrids have always ranked only a rung or two below Zeeks on the NAC government shit-list. However, life in the NAC has just taken a turn for the worse.[1/2]

>>46700960BP Options>VR GamerWe play ENTIRELY too many VR games for our own good. Fortunately, in 2090 Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Environments are not games in the traditional sense. They are hyper-realistic, virtual worlds which actually teach the player skills like how to swing a sword or shoot a gun. Choose one game below that our MC is utterly hooked on. You gain a one-level bonus to skills based on that game. This will also modify the look of our Avatar.>Deadlands: (Avatar: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e398/Torque2100/commishcold_by_wolfmweh.jpg )+1 CHA, Small Guns, Survival, First Aid>Totems of the Dead(Avatar: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e398/Torque2100/soranamae-251505-Rnangho.jpg )+1 CC, Survival, First Aid, Sneak>Golemechwarrior IV (Avatar: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e398/Torque2100/gecko_and_pilot__coloured__by_k1lleet-d8ekqz4_edit.jpg )+1 WIP Pilot: Golemech (Gain this skill at Poor), Big Guns, Energy weapons>Matrix of War: European Front (Avatar: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e398/Torque2100/fan_armor_6_by_shimmering_sword-d6j598x.jpg )+1 BS Small Guns, Big Guns, Energy Weapons>Gang MemberWhile in St Louis, our MC joined a street gang.

Our MC also has a small scar on her face, a souvenir from her “jumping in.”>Corporate InternBefore shit really hit the fan, our MC interned with Featherstone Nanotech. After the Racial Purity Act passed, the Corp decided to make a good show of being a moral, upstanding corporate citizen and kicked her out. However, she retained a contact Eugene Rasmussen, a mid-level exec at the Corp who didn’t like at all the way the situation was handled. Increase Speech by one level and gain a Contact: Megacorp and Ettiquette: Corporate.[1/2]
>>46700992>Wild TalentYou choose to forgo a background perk, for now. Our MC has always felt like she was special. Different somehow, but has never been able to put her finger on it.[2/2]
>>46700992so pick one game AND pick a background?
>>46701206No, if you pick the VR gamer background THEN you pick a game which modifies your skills and starting avatar. Otherwise our default avatar looks like this.http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e398/Torque2100/tron__roz_program_by_inkybrain-d6igd46.pngAlso, brb. My Twitter has been compromised AGAIN. Twitter's security is a fucking joke, I change my password and they just brute force it again.Excuse me while I unfollow 191 MORE ISIS twitter accounts.

>>46701483Nope. But I did vote Deadlands so I'm biased.
>>46701440>>46701553Going once, going twice.Okay. Our MC is hopelessly hooked on the Deadlands VRMMO and apparently plays as a Schoolmarm Blessed.Updating the Character Sheet, then Writing the intro post.
[Prologue][St. Louis, NAC. January 26th, 2089. 10:25 PM] So the Racial Purity Act passed. Bummer.After the Madrid Embassy attacks, the images of innocent people being murdered by an “evil Zeek’s” unnatural psychic power proved to be a propaganda boon for the NAC government. Riding high on this wave of anti-nonhuman sentiment, they rushed through the Racial Purity Act; a draconian piece of legislation that criminalizes the very existence of Psions as well as Nonhumans like yourself. It went into effect on Jan 1st, and you are afraid. The round-ups of replicants and suspected Psions have started. Word on the street is Hybrids are next in line. That means you, ami.Fortunately, there’s still time to remind people what America used to stand for. You’re on the way to meet Jazz, a friend of yours. Then you’re going to do a little “guerilla journalism.”You pull your hoodie tighter around yourself against the January chill. Not even global warming, it seems, can save us from Missouri in winter. It’s dangerous being out this late, the Military Police are just looking for a reason to run people in, ESPECIALLY gene-trash like you. You’re not too worried though, you’ve done this hundreds of times.The hardest part was getting out without grandma noticing. She must have known you were planning something, it seemed like she was never going to bed. Maybe she suspected what you were planning, but you’ve lived in that high-rise housing block since you were 11. Since Mom…. Well…. Walked out the door and never came back. You know every creaky floorboard, every squeaking stair, exactly how to sneak out.[1/2]
>>46701693[2/2]A chill wind picks up sweeping through the glittering spires and concrete canyons of the city. You’re suddenly very glad you wore leggings under this skirt.You suddenly stop next to a run-down looking electric sedan. Your ears perk at the sound of rubber on asphalt and the soft hum of an electric motor. Few people would be out this late, this can only be a military police cruiser. Your heart skips a beat, if the MPs catch you out this late, you’ll be arrested for sure.>[PH + Sneak+3] Hide under the Sedan>[PH+ Athletics] Make a run for it.>[CHA] Play it cool>Other [write in]
>>46701708>>[PH + Sneak+3] Hide under the Sedandon't see any reason not to play by the book
>>46701708>[PH + Sneak+3] Hide under the SedanJust to check I'm doing the maths right, the DC for this would be 11-1+3=13
>>46701763>>46701798You are correct, and that's the number we want to roll UNDER. We still want to roll as high as we can without going OVER and a result of exactly 13 is a Critical.Also, Captcha is fucking with me.
>>46701841So roll the dice!Roll a d20 and we'll take the best of 2 rolls since I only seem to have 2 players.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>46701841>>46701866

>>46701869Nice one.>>46701878If only I rolled like this in normal D20 quests.
>>46701869Effective Attribute is (11 - 1 + 3)= 13Best roll= 12Success!Writing.>>46701878Indeed. I wish I could roll 20s at all in D&D.
>>46700945Going through pastebins now before I start participating. Is there anything else I should read before jumping in?And is this an established game or universe? Is this setting some major one or something QM made up just for /tg/ quests, and is this the first one? Just curious.
>>46702048Considering how long the Setting Encyclopedia is, I think you should just read the char sheet and skim the rules as things are happening.It'll probably be obvious when a slang term is being used and we can check out the meaning whenever.
>>46701944You hear the car coming, loose gravel crunching under its tires. You turn and dive under the car, scrambling forward along the freezing, wet pavement until you are safely underneath.From your vantage point, you can see the headlights of the MP police cruiser illuminating the ground. The electric hum of its motor fills your ears as it gets closer. Finally the wheels come into view, rolling... to stop.Shit.Your breath catches in your throat as the MPs inside sweep the the sidewalk with their mounted searchlight. You instinctively cover your eyes. The angle means the searchlight creates deep shadows under the car, but the shine might give you away.After what seems like an eternity, the searchlight swivels back into place, and you hear the cruiser's motor humming as it pulls away.You finally allow yourself to breathe as the sound of the car fades away completely."Fuck, that was close."What should we do now?>Hurry to meetup with Jazz>Take our time, let's not get caught.
>>46702070>>46702048To answer your question, this is based on Interface Zero, a Cyberpunk setting for Savage Worlds, True 20 and FATE.
>>46702100>Hurry to meetup with Jazz
>>46702100>Hurry to meetup with JazzIf they're going for slow sweeps, better to skip past patrols.
>>46702149>>46702150No point in waiting, you think as you pull yourself out from under the sedan. You curse under your breath, your hoodie is wet and now you're really feeling the cold.Well better shivering outside than in the back of an MP patrol car.Needing to shave some time, you elect to a risky shortcut.The alley smells of trash and, you stop to sample the air. Woodsmoke.Shit. You'd hope that little gaggle of homeless guys had moved along, but you can smell the burn barrel from a block away.Well, too late to back out now. You turn the corner and see them, three men huddled around a burn barrel like birds around a seeder. One of them is tall and lanky with ebony skin, his companion is a short fellow with a spare tire and a bulbous head stuffed into a knit cap. The last is an ancient, leathery-skinned guy with a ragged mustache and missing a few teeth.They see you immediately. The tall one looks up from blowing on his hands and you can see a gleam in his eye, at least the eye that's not a cheap cybernetic."Hey baby! Hey kitty cat!" The start shouting at you and whistling."Why don't you come over here and keep warm with us?! Have a drink?">Ignore them and keep walking>Flip them off and keep walking>[CHA+Persuasion] Show them your AR gauntlet "I can fry your brain with this, so why don't you piss off?">[WIP+Hacking]Zap one of them with your Non-Lethal attack Program.>Other [write in]

Rolled 1 (1d2)>>46702507>>46702515>>46702525>>46702530Yet again we have a tie. What is it with this quest and ties?Rolling a d2,1= Ignore them2=Attempt Intimidation
>>46702572>>Ignore them and Keep Walking[1/2]You keep walking, looking straight ahead and trying to ignore the stink of men who haven't bathed in days and heavy winter coats that haven't been washed ever.Sometimes you hate having a superhuman sense of smell.The tall one moves as if to pursue you. "Hey baby, where you going so fast? Aww come back, kitty. I didn't mean it I was just playin."Seeing you're not going to turn, he hits you with a parting shot. "Aww fuck you, bitch. You ain't hot anyway."Crestwood Mall was a nice place when it re-opened back in 2044, after being stuck in development hell for 28 years. You remember coming here when you were a kid, but it was apparently never very profitable. It was difficult to get to, and being smack-dab in the middle of the crime-ridden “Helltown” half of St. Louis certainly didn’t help. The company went under and it closed 8 years ago. The building has stood empty and derelict since, slowly rotting away while different megacorps fight over the land. In the meantime it has become a haven for the dispossessed.
>>46702642[2/2]You’re not planning to go far. The parking garage is the perfect spot for a clandestine meeting.Or to get jumped by Chrome Reapers and have your TAP cut out of your still-living body.You try to chase that image out of your head as you approach the fence. The gap is right where you remember it, and you duck inside, the ragged ends of the chicken-wire grabbing at your hoodie, the fence making a “ching chingggg” noise as the wire fence hits the fenceposts.The darkness of the abandoned parking garage is thick, and would be blinding to an unmodified human. Good thing your eyes have a tapetum lucidum. Perks of being born spliced. The shadows melt away before you, revealing the ancient, cracked pavement beneath your feet. Trash is strewn everywhere and here and there, the moldering hulks of abandoned cars, all either stripped for parts long ago or just smashed to bits by bored teenagers.The pungent smell of mildew fills your nostrils, and the sound of your footsteps echoes from the crumbling concrete.You pass an abandoned minivan, its doors pulled off the hinges and every single shard of glass broken and scattered across the pavement, your feline ears perk at the sound of someone sliding to the ground behind you the broken glass cracking under their feet as they land.“Freeze!” >Put your hands up and turn around slowly.>[WIP+Hacking+Program] Turn around and zap them with your attack program.>[PH+Unarmed] Whirl around and try to kick them.>Other [Write in]

Survival instincts kick into high gear. You whirl, extending your rear leg and striking backwards towards the source of the voice. Your target sees your move and deftly deflects the blow springing back and out of the arc of your kick(Target rolled an 11 vs a PH of 12 and so beats us and blocks the attack)“Fucking hell, Jazz you almost gave me a heart attack.”A palpable sense of relief washes over you as you see, not a chrome reaper or a gang-banger looking for a hit of the old ultra-violence, but a woman about your age in jeans and a short white jacket. Her caramel colored skin and dyed red hair are instantly familiar to you. It’s Jazz; your best friend since Junior High. The only one who wanted to make friends with the Hybrid freak girl with the missing mom.You try to catch your breath and slow your racing pulse.Jazz favors you with the knowing smirk she always has when she knows she’s beaten you.“You need to be more attentive, kitten. I had you dead bang.”You immediately bristle. ‘Kitten’ It’s hard not to get annoyed when every single solitary idiot in the sprawl gives you the exact same nickname just because of your genes. Jazz has always called you that though. >Dammit, Jazz would you stop with the Kitten, shit already?>Whatever. Did you bring the goods?
>>46703068>Whatever. Did you bring the goods?
>>46703068>I'll have you know that I'm a [name] now, not just some kitten.
>>46703068>>Whatever. Did you bring the goods?
>>46703090>>46703119>>46703166(Finally. NOT A TIE)>>Whatever, did you bring the goods?Jazz’ smirk widens to a grin. “I sure did. Got a new virus sheet and some juicy intel from the Man himself.”You look up at Jazz, your ears perking in surprise and amazement. “Wait. You MET Scorpio Sage?”“The very same. He’s been mentoring me, showing me how he codes the Black Hat Byte. Soon I’ll be able to code my own Virus Sheets.”Her expression darkens, her smile fading into a worried look.“The things he showed me. Rache, I don’t think you’re gonna like this.”Jazz pokes at the air in front of her. A file transfer request pops up on your AR overlay. “What is it?”“Drone reconnaissance of some huge, NAC construction project in the Ozarks.”There are two files. The first is a series of grainy, black and white photos. All clearly taken from a microdrone and timestamped about 2 weeks ago. What they depict sends a chill down your spine. Dozens of identical, bald figures working hurriedly to erect inwardly sloping fences to surround a massive complex of buildings, mostly long, low structures that look like barracks. Judging from the ring of heavily armed robots surrounding the site, these people probably aren’t volunteers. However, what frightens you most are the ominous, concrete buildings further in the distance. The ones sporting smokestacks. “Jazz, is this what I think it is?”Jazz nods gravely. “The rigger that took those pictures is now dead.”The second file is labelled “TheBlackHatBye01.29.89” A file tag reads “Tag this to hyper-objects. Be sure to run this in Demo Mode if you want to preview it.”>Jazz. What have you dragged me into?>Well let’s do this. Wouldn’t want his death to be in vain.>Open [TheBlackHatBye01.29.89] in demo mode>Other[Write in]

>>46703212>>Open [TheBlackHatBye01.29.89] in demo mode
>>Jazz. What have you dragged me into?Jazz shrugs and raises her eyebrows. “Hey Rache, this fight is here weather you wanted it or not.” She puts her hands on her hips and walks towards you."I sure hope you didn't come all the way out her for nothing. Let's tag this file all over town, yeah? Make it so the people can't ignore this any longer.">Ask about the second file"So what's this second file?" You ask. "Is this what I think it is?"Jazz nods. "One of Sage's special Virus Sheets. Just use your Exploit program to install that baby onto any kind of digital device. A public info terminal, an AR ad board and then anyone who interacts with its ARO will instead have the Virus Sheet hack through their firewalls and confront them with the truth. About what President Webber is planning, and about what they are letting happen in this country."Jazz gives a satisfied sigh, grinning ear to ear. "You've been rehearsing that little speech, haven't you?" You ask as you slot the the [BlackHatByte] and run the file in demo mode.[1/?]
>>46703429[2/?]>[Open [TheBlackHatBye01.29.89] in Demo Mode]You click the file and select “open.” The Virus Sprite slices through your cheap, consumer grade Firewall like it wasn’t even there. Instantly, your AR overlay pixelates and freezes, unresponsive. First a demo window pops up, displaying “Stop” “Play” “Skip Forward” “Skip Backward” and “Exit.” Options. Options that wouldn’t be there if you hadn’t been running demo mode.A few seconds later, an AR window pops up. A figure in a blue trenchcoat appears with a blank, featureless face appears.“Hey there, Sprawlers. Sorry to interrupt the AR-augmented shopping spree you call living, but I figured your Corporate overlords could do without your unwavering attention for a bit, while I shove some hard, throbbing TRUTH down your throat, whether you like it or not.”A slideshow begins moving behind him, starting with a grainy, old photograph of a balding man with a large mustache.
>>46703470“You may have heard a quote by George Santayana once or twice. ‘Those who cannot remember the past are destined to repeat it.’ Well friends, history is repeating itself in the NAC, right in front of you, right now.”“I’m sure the Racial Purity Act sounded wonderful when you first heard about it. ‘Oh it’s a wonderful idea’ you might have said to yourself. ‘I hate these people; I hate having to share a country with them. Let’s get the Government to make them all disappear. It’s not as if any REAL people go away. Just those evil Zeeks who can fry my brain, those fucking Replicants who took all our jobs, those nasty Hybrids who mixed their genes with animal filth.’ Oh the list of those you good, God-fearing people hate goes on and on doesn’t it?”“Have you ever stopped to consider, who the ones dangling this hate-carrot in front of you really are? Have you forgotten yet, the many outrages that led to the Second Civil War? The suspension of habeas corpus. The imprisonment of political dissidents?”“Have you forgotten the Texas Tussle? Have you forgotten gun crazed, National Guardsmen massacring civilians and committing war crimes until the Texas Rangers and local law enforcement joined forces to kick the Feds out of Texas?”“It was only one straw among many that triggered the Second Civil War, to be sure, but this should be a message to you. A message about the motherfucking TITANIC can of worms you have just opened. If you think President Webber and his religious fanatic cronies are going to stop with non-humans, you are LYING to yourself. There’s a whole country full of degenerates, homosexuals, darkies and Yids all waiting to be disappeared under the Racial Purity Act.”“An as for those people, the ones your government is getting rid of. Have you ever wondered what the ‘Away’ they go to is? Well wonder no more, sprawler.”>Let it keep playing.>Skip forward>Skip backard>Stop
>>46703488>Let it keep playing.Laying it on a bit thick isn't he?
>>46703488>Let it keep playing.
>>46703488>Let it keep playingIf we're going to be using this thing "hard, throbbing truth", we want to know everything about it before we start spreading it everywhere.Also, all that lore. Glad I did read the encyclopedia after all, and I also just want to say that this is a very interesting setting that I'm excited to join a quest in.
>>46703525>Laying it on a bit thick isn't he?(He's basically a cyberpunk version of the Question. Would you expect anything less?)The screen behind him changes to the images you saw before. The black and white pictures of President Webber’s new Concentration Camps.“Behold, the Undesirable’s Roach Motel. ‘You can check in, but the only way out is up the smokestack.’”“I sure hope you blue-platers watching at home didn’t sleep though history class. Because if you were paying attention, especially to that little unpleasant bit about Germany between 1931 and 1945, these images should scare the shit out of you.”The image behind him changes to the iconic shot of the gate to Auscwitz concentration camp.“Seriously?! Were the Atlantica Bombings not enough of a wakeup call for you people? History is repeating itself, right in front of you with your silent consent.”“’What can I do?’ I hear you ask. Let me tell you, ami. Little old you, might not be able to do much, but get a whole bunch of ‘little old you’s together, and you can change the world. It won’t be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. You have to put your bodies upon the gears, upon the wheels, upon levers upon all the apparatus and you have got to make it stop. You can start by telling your friends what you’ve seen here, and hope some of them listen.” “Until next time, Ami. This is Scorpio Sage, bitch-slapping you with the truth, whether you like it or not.”
>>46703532It's one of the reasons I love Interface Zero so much. It's remarkable how prescient an RPG campaign setting created in 2010 can be.It's worth noting that, in my experience, Interface Zero is considerably darker than either Shadowrun or Cyberpunk 2020.>On with the showScorpio's avatar dissipates before you, your AR overlay returns to normal as the Virus Sheet releases you from its digital grasp."It's quite something, isn't it?" Jazz says as she leans against the rusted out hulk of the minivan. "It's going to be hard for the blue-platers to ignore this one." She stands and brushes dust off her jeans."So, shall we?" She asks, nodding towards the world outside this musty parking garage.“Say Rache, why don’t you pick the first target tonight? You lead and I’ll follow.”You stroke your chin. It’s nice being able to pick the first move. You could get used to having options. After some thought, a few juicy targets spring to mind.>The Smart-Ads and Public Infoterminals at the Metro-Station. Maximum exposure for rush hour crowds.>Victory Park. Formerly Jefferson Memorial. The Gateway Arch, now called “the Gatway to Victory” has been transformed into one of the most important propaganda symbols for the NAC military.

>>46703650>Smart-Ads and Public Infoterminals2nd option is great for being symbolic and meaningful and all, really sticking it to the man by using propaganda to spread your own truth, but so many less people would stop by there that I don't think it's really worth it, especially considering our goal is just to spread this video, not add any more meaning to it.3rd option just seems dangerous for the sake of being dangerous.
>>The Smart-Ads and Public Infoterminals at the Metro-Station. Maximum exposure for rush hour crowds.You think for a moment, stroking your chin, your tail twitching back and forth."Why don't we hit the Metro Station? It's close to where we are, and the Virus Sheets will get maximum exposure come rush hour."Jazz smirks. “Not what I would have picked, but a good enough target I guess. So, shall we get started?"You turn to leave, but Jazz stops you.“Hey listen, Rache. One more thing before we get going.” Jazz reaches into her pocket, pulls out an old-style solid-state memory chip and holds it up so you can clearly see the label. It simply reads “Watch Me.”“This is for you.” She says, handing you the chip. “Don’t slot it. Yet. This is just in case…”>Take the chip and leave without saying anything>Take the chip. "Ooo-kay.

>>46703806[1/2]>>Take the chip. "Ooo-kay. Expecting any trouble?"Jazz shrugs in that usual, nonchalant way she does. "It never hurts to be prepared.""Prepared for what, Jazz?"Her face darkens at your continued insistence. "Don't make me say it, Rache. You know what will happen if we get caught. Let's go."The trip to the Metro station is mostly uneventful. You only see one passing MP patrol cruiser, and it's easy to dodge, but the whole way your nerves burn with tension. You can't help but imagine that an MP control drone has you flagged already.Finally, the Museum St. Station yawns open in the pavement before you. The St. Louis metro is open 24/7, but this late at night few people are riding the trains except for gang members looking for a quick fix and homeless people who just want to be warm."After you." Jazz motions ahead of her.The metro is dark and quiet, a warm breeze blows in from the tunnels carrying the smell of ozone.
>>46704020You slip in ahead of Jazz and take in the sight. The station is completely deserted, not even a late night drunk here to spoil your fun.You can see a few juicy targets. Just ahead, a set of AR billboards begin to play back animations as you approach. "Welcome, Rachelle and Harry. It's time, time for you to SURF MIT BOB." M3's latest "so long as it sounds foreign" marketing slogan for their line of TAP upgrades.You also spy a public info terminal.Jazz gives you a disappointed look."Rache, didn't I tell you to get a fake ID?

>>46704276Each of us rolls 1d20, and OP takes the best roll out from the first few posts, of a number he will generally declare beforehand, though he appears to have forgotten this time around.
>>46704276Yes, all active players roll, then we use the best out of all the rolls.(This is going to get more complicated when we start involving autofire weapons or more powerful hacking programs. Those have a Burst rating, meaning we roll multiple d20s for those actions. Just one for each point of Burst.)Best Roll is a 10Success!You slice through the billboards' firewall quite easily. Thankfully they're all controlled from the same node, probably to cut down costs. You locate the file containing the Facial recognition database and with a quick wave of your hand, erase your entry, then turn off the facial recognition scanner before it can ID you again.You roll your eyes at Jazz.

(Best roll=11)(WELP!)Seeing their buddy has put the MPs on the warpath."ON THE GROUND! GET ON THE GROUND!" They raise their guns painting laser sights on you. Your confidence fades, replaced by fear as you turn to run.Suddenly the dream of your triumph has become a nightmare. Worse, it's the nightmare where no matter how fast you try to run, the sludge slows you down so the monsters can get you.You scream for Jazz, but she's so far ahead you think you'll never catch up to her. Just like in everything else.You barely make it to the t-junction leading to the surface when what feels like a freight train hits you from behind. The first MP shoulder checks you into a wall and body-slams you to the ground. The hard concrete knocks the wind out of you and muscular legs straddle your torso, pinning you down. You feel a ring of cold steel press against your head."Don't move, freak, or I'll blow your head off."From your vantage point you can see Jazz watching helplessly, torn halfway between escape and helping you.>Scream for Jazz to help you>Scream for Jazz to run>Lie still and be quiet>[PH+Unarmed-3]Attack the MP with your claws.

Your arm shoots up knocking the gun away, the officer fires a second to late. The gun's report is deafening so close to your ear, and leaves it ringing.Your other hand flies up into his face and your claws dig in. The MP recoils clutching is face, blood pouring out of deep gouges in the flesh. A second later, Jazz's foot connects as she does a flying kick into the MP's head knocking him on his ass.Jazz gabs your arm, hauling you to your feet."Damn, Kitten. We're on a roll tonight!"The other cop rounds the corner and sees his partner passed out on the floor. "Control! Paramedics and backup to my GPS."You look at Jazz, grinning ear to ear.

>>46705155[2/3]It started small, at first. A high-pitched whining noise that seemed to start inside your skull. For a moment you thought your TAP was glitching, but then the noise grew louder and louder. Soon it was a piercing shriek. A distorted, electronic sound that starts inside your skull and throbs its way out. Your temples start to pound. You clutch at the sides of your head, pressing your ears against your scalp in a vain attempt to silence that horrid, piercing NOISE. That fucking scream from deep inside your skull. It’s not just you, either. The cop,is clutching his head and staggering, screaming to be heard over the growing cacophony from inside his own skull.Then the world goes mad. Your TAP overlay goes crazy, pixels flashing in front of you, spam windows opening and closing. The screaming becomes millions of voices, some laughing, some crying, some talking some screaming, all pouring into your brain faster than you can process them.

His gun is back in his hand, the barrel is smoking.He shot the other cop. He shot his partner."Fucking demons. You won't get ME DEMONS! YOU WON'T TURN ME!" He turns towards you firing wildly.

One bullet whizzes past your head, then another hits the wall next to you.The gunshots stop, the you chance a look behind you. The cop is still pulling the trigger of his empty gun.

The pain in your skull is still there, but fading. Hearing returns and all around you, people are screaming. Some are flailing at things that aren’t there. Here a woman lies on the sidewalk in a fetal position, there a man tries to hold down another man who seems to be writhing in the grips of a seizure, his eyes rolled back into his head and foam spilling from his lips.Then you smell blood."Rache..... Rache.... stop..." Jazz' voice is strained and breathless more than you've ever heard her before. You stop and turn back towards the sound of Jazz’ voice.

>>46705449You got an idea when you might next run?
>>46705471I was 98% sure she'd die as soon as you introduced her, but still.
>>46705443Why did we roll, then?I mean I like where this is going, OP, and I can understand what you were trying to do dramatically, but if I had to give one piece of advice for future sessions: be prepared for Crits.That's all. Enjoying it so far! Thanks for running!
>>46705443I'm sorry? Was she just supposed to die without a word if we failed the roll?You could have put the modifiers for lacking equipment? Hell, how hard is it to wrap a shirt around someone's midsection?>>46705471.....ah. I take it that shooting the guard with the prog still would have killed Jazz anyway?
>>46705475Hopefully next weekend.I will post updates to Twitter.If you are totally lost as to what happened, scroll to the bottom of the World Encyclopedia and look for something called "the Flare Riots."
>>46705484>>46705485To answer your questions, Jazz death is the catalyst that really starts our MC on her journey as a character.Now where she ends up is up to you, Anons.
>>46705449Thanks for running Sharron.
>>46705497you know, I was only kidding about >>46705420But I'm not really surprised. Setting death flags everywhere and such. I guess the actual cause of death needed more....justification?>these are still riot grade handguns, right?although if the world is so dark that they use HOLLOW POINTS right off the bat, that'd be pretty bad indeed.>just blood lossMaybe you could have added in massive tetanus poisoning that obviously wouldn't be treatable as the riots begin and hospitals either shutdown or overflow.
Thanks for being so awesome, Anons.NEXT TIME on SCRIPT KITTEN QUEST:-One year later.-Chicago, the Free City, Walled Citadel of the Great Lakes. Jazz told me I'll find Scorpio Sage here, that he's the only one who can help.-If the street doesn't kill me first.
>>46705533We'll go over that later, butYou never did find her body after the riots.
>>46705563>she was shot with irradiated spider bite rounds and turned into a superhero after "dying"gotcha
>>46705563So I'll just assume you can make 40k style servitors out of corpses then. Or something worse...
>>46705549Thanks for running!Now, if you excuse me, i'll go make a sacrifice to the dice gods. This wasn't okay.
