The year is 2040Humanity was crushed by the Fleet of Fog, and can't risk losing the firepower they still have left.They had to watch as their navies were all destroyed by ships that brought them hope and victories long ago.But now, they can see these ships in a new light...I typically run on /tg/, but I'm going to test /qst/'s population.And yes, I know that as of the time I'm posting this, there is a KC quest up on this board.>Pastebin:http://pastebin.com/Zq26rhgV>Archive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kantai%20Collection%20of%20Blue%20Steel%20QuestThis quest runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting around 4-6 PM EST>Twitter, so you can get notified when I run, when I'm unable to run, answers to QA questions that I miss, and when I give hints to future threads or fluff: https://twitter.com/BoatKunQMYou are the Battleship USS North Carolina, and are ready to take back the seas from the Fleet of Fog!>LAST TIME on Kantai Collection of Blue Steel, we battled a Fog Patrol Fleet, and Argonaut is still one overpowered motherfucker>We have 1 Fate Point in the bankAnd just so you know, I end the thread at around 9-10 PM EST, but try to answer questions afterwards. If I miss them in thread, you'll find the answers on twitter.
After that battle the other day, things had been eerily quiet in terms of detected Fog activity. Also, you've found out the the televisions in the rooms play live footage from the drones on scouting duty, which has mostly been open ocean for all that you've watched of it.The next morning, as you flick between these cameras, you see a flash of light, not firing at the camera. You stop flicking through channels, and look closely. The Fog ship is an Atlanta class Light Cruiser. You strain your eyes slightly trying to see what the Fog ship is shooting at, and can faintly make out there being a Shipgirl there...>Roll 1d20, Best of 3, 1 Roll per person
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>186713
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>186713Roll for hip shot?
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>186713Holy crap, waiting this long just for a third roll?!
>>187359Hey man, I can't roll twice.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>187359Yes>>186713You squint as hard as you can, and make out the shape of large guns on her rig.The girl was a Battleship, and a big one at that.>(cont. for a me-only diceroll)
>>187590The Shipgirl wasn't in very good shape at all, with her engines puffing out large quantities of smoke.Well, she might not last much longer against a Fog ship without upgrades, especially when all on her own.>Gather everyone>Go on your own>Get one other Shipgirl to come with you (Who?) ^>(The options are Lexington(CV-16), Argonaut, Hailey, or Houston)
>>187659>Go on your ownShe is in pretty bad shape.Hello New Jersey
>>187659>>Go on your ownGogogo ASAP. We're a battleship, we can deal with it.
>>187659>>Go on your own
Sorry about all of this. I got distracted. I'll resume in a moment.
>>187659You get up right away, hurrying so you can launch yourself as early as possible. You pass Hailey while running, and she simply stares until you,ve passed by. You reach the launch point and manually deploy yourself. Your rig appears and you hurry to the location the drone was at. >Roll 1d20 Same rules apply

Rolled 1 (1d2)>>188124>rolling to see if decoy is included>1 is no, 2 is yes

Rolled 16 (1d20)>>188287
>>188287Seven out of the nine shots you fired hit, critically damaging the Atlanta class, even with its Klein Field up. The Fog ship suddenly begins launching dozens of Corrosive Missiles, with noticably even amounts headed for both you and the Shipgirl. >DEFEND HER! KICK MY ENGINE INTO OVERDRIVE!>REMOVE MISSILE>FINISH IT
>>188338Hahaha! Typical of a BB; our speed sucks, but our guns rule! Radar master-race!
>>188375>>REMOVE MISSILE>prioritize the ones going for the other more injured shipgirlTime to dish out ALL the AA!!!
>>188375>REMOVE MISSILEThis pretty much does the same as the first option, right?

>>188555You were supposed to beat our rolls.You were the chosen one!
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>188534Rolling to determine who gets hit
>>188563Oh man, I hope that means it's us that gets hit, since we're at full armor/hp and Klein-field strength.
>>188375You rush towards the Shipgirl to defend her, shooting down the missiles headed for you, and dive in the path of those heading for her, firing at everything you can. You take 8 hits,heavily damaging you and shutting down your Klein Field. Now the battle can go either way. One chance. One oppurtunity. >MOM'S SPAGHETTI!>PUT IN EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT! PUSH YOURSELF BEYOND YOUR LIMITS!>BOOM MOTHERFUCKER!>DO SOMETHING REALLY COOL You'll have to tell me what it is though :^)

Rolled 2, 1, 1 = 4 (3d2)>>188690And now for which music I choose.
Actually, I think I'll mix all three.And no, we aren't going Super Saiyan. It's just what fit what I'm writing the most.>>188606You force your engines to go beyond to the point where the gravitons are causing a highly visible gravitational anomaly in the water. >ROLL 3D20>THAT'S RIGHT>3>D>20

Rolled 2, 18, 19 = 39 (3d20)>>188730
>>188730https://youtu.be/PqjxqGcu-Z0You materialize a sword out of nanomaterials.However, it isn't just any sword. It's a sword made of gravitational waves like those fired from your Photon Cannons. You charge the Atlanta, it firing its Photon Cannons, but they can't hit you. You jam the Photon Sword into the hull of the Atlanta, holding on with one hand. You pound the hull with the other, denting it deeply. You've also been sceaming this whole time. "SINK! SINNNNKKK!"You fire your guns at point blank, repeatedly, to the point that your shots are passing through the holes they made. As water touches your heel, you snap out of your pure rage. And then you faint. >Special skill learned-Rage Mode>Rage Mode exclusive skill learned-Photon Sword>That's all for tonight. Make sure to follow my twitter that can be found in the OP post, so you can stay updated on my stuff. Ask any questions you have here or on my twitter, and if this hasn't fallen off by tomorrow morning, I'll be most likely to answer them here. I'm going to only run on Thursdays from now on by the way. I need the sleep. Kaga says sleep is good for you.
>>188821Rage mode will make us faint when it runs out by the way.
>>188821>>Rage Mode exclusive skill learned-Photon SwordHuh... can we eventually learn how to use this during normal times as well? Maybe a less-powerful but more stable version at least?
I'll still be answering questions as long as you guys have any.
>>188759I DON'T NEED CRUTCHES
>>189708And we didn't :^)
I can continue from where we left off if you guys want, since this'll be up for a while.
Don't expect me to extend every time, but I'll do it as often as I can. I've changed my running to Thursdays by the way. I will run on Tuesday next week, since next Thursday I won't be able to run.Here's a new Pastebinhttp://pastebin.com/84Cu2hMqI'll get to writing in a moment
Sometimes a moment can mean an hour>>188821You wake up in the healing bath, and as your vision kicks in, you see a tall girl in the bath with you, watching over you. It takes you a moment, but you realize that it's the Shipgirl that you saved."I carried you here after you passed out. It's the least I could've done to thank you for saving me," she says, clearly relieved. "I'm BB-62, USS New Jersey.">Faint again>"HOLY SHIT">"How long was I out?">Other/Write-In
>>190405>>"HOLY SHIT"Dayum! that was totally worth it!
>>190405>"How long was I out?"
Rolled 1, 1, 2 = 4 (3d2)Dice roll is in post order
>>190405"HOLY SHIT!" you exclaim. "A-are you alright after that damage you took?""You took way more, I could've taken a few of those hits that you took, after all.""How long was I out for?" you ask."I followed that drone back to base, and was debriefed after setting you down in here, and before getting in myself, as I was instructed.""Well that saves me some time," you sigh.>TIME TO SLEEP>Talk (About what)>Grab boobis>Other/Write-In
>>190812>Talk about if she has met the others yet.
>>190812"Have you met the others yet?" you ask, submerging yourself deeper into the water."Not really. I walked past them, and I'm sure they know who I am by now.""Well the Fog ship who works with us is Lexington. The second one. The Fletcher is Hailey. The Submarine is Argonaut, and the Northampton is Houston.""I'll have to acquaint myself with them when we're all patched up then.">TIME TO SLEEP>Talk (About what)>Grab boobis>Other/Write-InMy writing is QUALITY/10

>>190991You get a little too comfy in the water, and you fall asleep rather quickly. >Roll 1d20
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>191185I'm not sure what this roll is for...
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>191185
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>191185
>>191185You wake up and look around. It's the middle of the night, as indicated by a clock behind you. New Jersey has left, presumably repaired. You are also repaired by this time. You get out and dry off, finding a new set of your clothes, to replace your destroyed clothes.You head back to your room, to find that it is now being shared with a sleeping New Jersey, who has placed a small sign above her bed that reads "NJ".So that's why there were two beds in the room.You'll need some more sleep so your body can finely repair itself.>Battleship Row>Get to bed>Do something else first (What?)
>>191473You decide that the family that sleeps together, keeps together, and so you get in the same bed as NJ.She moves slightly, waking up because of your presence.>Roll 1d20, and give a Write-In to make this less awkward
>>191725Y'all picked the bait
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>191725Fuck, I don't know...>Sorry to wake you. The first night can be pretty scary after reviving and what not. I... figured having another presence at least near you could just let you get a proper rest, should it be necessary. I can understand though if you think you'll be fine and I'll just go back over to my bunk.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>191725*yawn and cuddle* munya munya...
>>191826>>191870If you two would like, we can use the Fate Point to reroll.With a Write-In, I'll choose either what gets the most support or what I like the most if even.>Do you want to use the Fate Point for a reroll?>Y>N
>>192032>NI DON'T NEED YOUR CRUTCHESPretend to be fast asleep.
>>192045Which Write-In do you prefer then, or do you have your own?Either way I advise you roll 1d20, as we can evade possibly needing a fate point.
>>192032>NNah, awkward time it is! Besides, rerolls should be reserved for critical situations or life-saving purposes only.
>>192062Ah, alright. Rolling, and...Support the >yawn and cuddleif that one was one of the options.
>>192075You goofed anon
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>192084I did. Sorry, in a tabletop session mid combat so I have spare moments.
>>192087....WOOOOO!!!! MAXIMUM CUDDLE!
>>192087Now this is cuddling
>>192087>>192094>>192122Do you guys want to save that 20 as a Fate Point?I mean I know you don't, but I have to ask this
>>192175Hell NO. Bring it on!
>>192175>Asking if we want to hold back on a cuddle roll.
It begins>>191725>>192032>>192175She stirs and opens her eyes to see you lying beside her. You do the cutest yawn you possibly can, and snuggle up closer then before.She softly smiles, and then closes her eyes again.You both cuddle each other to sleep.We U-Boat now?>Well that went WAY better then expected.>That's all I can do for tonight. I'll run a semi-normal thread on Tuesday that I won't continue through Wednesday (I can't run anything on Wednesday or Thursday next week), but otherwise I'll just run on Thursdays from now on.> Make sure to follow me at https://twitter.com/BoatKunQM>I'm always open to memeing on twitter if you guys would like. SO, what are your opinions, questions, and recommendations that you have?I know you have some
>>192400Kinda wish the posts had more to them. They always seem so short in comparison to how long It is between posts.
>>192572This. I for one expected a lot more writing for that nat 20.
>>192599Yeah...Hell, It was only four sentences for that.
>>192572>>192599I'm with them on this. If you're afraid of taking too long to write, considering how slow /qst/ is we'll see it. I know with Merc he takes like 10-15 minutes after voting has taken its time and he declares a winning option. I'm taking the guess that he probably also has notes for each option.I don't mind waiting a bit to get a little more wordy posts, god knows we all put up with that when planefag posts a story post.
>>192639>>192627>>192599>>192572I'm afraid of taking too long when writing, and that can be attributed to how quickly falling off could happen on /tg/. I do keep notes, but they aren't as in depth as I would like. Long times between my posts are a mixture of waiting for posts and getting distracted by Steel Ocean and Victoria 2. I need to break this habit honestly. I can try to announce the 'stopping votes' thing, but we don't have any real reason for samefagging to be a risk. I'll try to word the hell out of the next thread. >are you guys interested in what upgrades NJ picked? Since she's a big girl, she's ~4 inches longer then the other Iowa's iirc, which makes her the biggest American Battleship, she got 3.
>>192834I keep forgetting to put on my trip as well.
>>192834>>are you guys interested in what upgrades NJ picked? Since she's a big girlOoooh yes!
>>192834Maybe while waiting for posts, try and find ways to expand on the different options until we finalize the vote? I dunno, just options. I can't tell you what to do.Around here we don't need to worry about samefagging (which is why you don't need to worry about forgetting your trip save for the OP).
>>192854She has>Klien Field>Photon Cannons/Weaponry>and a Triple Super Gravity Cannon, note that it is the Shipgirl type is weaker then the Fog's, but hits harder and with more force. The triple is more then enough to beam struggle a single from a Fog ship, and win.
