Welcome one and all to the second issue of Super Symbiote Quest! We'll be continuing where we left off last time, having named our symbiote Golden Scarab!Here's our last thread; http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1604914/Social link pastebin and pastebin for Solomon in MCQ will be up later this week.Be sure to follow me on twitter @TrueBelieverQMPowers in the next post!
These powers require SP or Symbiote Points to purchase, of which you will receive for committing various actions and 1 at the end of each thread! You currently have 3 SP! You current powers include; >Danger Sense LV 1 - Having been spawned from the Venom symbiote that was bonded to Spider Man (who you do not know is Peter Parker), the symbiote has a great many aspects of the wall crawler, not the least of which includes a Danger Sense. Currently you can only sense danger if it is obvious and while directly linked to Scarab. +1 to Danger related rolls [1 Points to upgrade] >Wall Crawling and Web Slinging - Another of Spider Man's powers, you are able to attach yourself onto near any surface imaginable. Your tendrils also act as webs, which can detach from you and be made into shapes. >Enhanced Strength LV 1 - Scarab is currently capable of lifting 5 tons, around the weight of a pretty large forklift. +1 to Strength related rolls [1 Points to upgrade] >Enhanced Agility LV 1 - Scarab was already very nimble, but a stronger bond can lead to even more elasticity of both the host and the suit, becoming much more limber and elastic. Provides a Base +1 to rolls involving speed or reflexes. [1 Points to upgrade] >Regeneration LV 1 - Scarab can regenerate its bodily substances over time, allowing for great feats of both agility and reinforcement, kind of like an armor. It can also use this substance to heal you, to where minor cuts and bruises heal almost instantly. Injuries that would take months to heal now only take a few weeks to patch up. [1 Points to upgrade] >Enhanced Durability LV 1 - Scarab instinctively hardens small sections of its body, protecting and negating damage to an extent. Capable of withstanding fire from low caliber handguns for a long period of time. High caliber handguns and rifles however have a chance to penetrate this armor if you come under repeated fire. [1 Point to upgrade] ______________________________________________________________________________ >Current New Powers! >Fire Resistance LV 1 (Requires Enhanced Durability LV 2) - Scarab becomes less afraid of fire and its affects, also developing a partial oxygen pocket in case of smoke inhalation. You can last 5 minutes within a burning facility. [2 points to purchase!] >Stretching LV 1 (Requires Regeneration LV 2) - Scarab can now create whole new tendrils that extend the length of your limbs, including your arms and legs, like you were made of rubber! Maybe in time you could stretch other parts of your body... maybe your joints or your whole fist! [2 points to purchase!] >Shape Shifting LV 1 (Requires Enhanced Agility and Regeneration LV 2) - Once morphed into your suit, the symbiote can create crude items and materials, like turn your hand into a weird billy club, or extend itself into a shield! The only limit is your imagination!... and your LV. [2 points to purchase!]
>>1627182>Regeneration>Enhanced Strength>Enhanced Durability
>>1627197>>1627231Damn there are not a lot of people here.Gonna leave this up for another 30 minutes.
>>1627180>Regeneration>StretchingI actually tweeted you about your Talking Bible Adventure quest, but this seems cool too. Will read up the first thread.
>>1627182>Enhanced Strength LV 1 - Scarab is currently capable of lifting 5 tons, around the weight of a pretty large forklift. +1 to Strength related rolls [1 Points to upgrade]>Enhanced Agility LV 1 - Scarab was already very nimble, but a stronger bond can lead to even more elasticity of both the host and the suit, becoming much more limber and elastic.

>>1627268So it IS you ThunderBlargI actually ran a second thread for Marvel Cape Quest, though it as really short. Life came at me fast. Look it up in the archives though! >>1627197>>1627231>>1627272>>1627275Leaving it up for another 20 minutes, see if you guys can't come to a conclusion, though it seems regen and strength are pretty much locked if I'm not mistaken.
>>1627182>>Regeneration>>Enhanced Strength>>Enhanced Durability
>>Regeneration>>Enhanced Strength>>Enhanced Durability
So regen is locked, and that is it.So, let the options begin, before I start rolling.>Strength >Durability >Agility >Stretching >Shape Shifting Strength and Durability are in the lead currently.
>>1627377Can only choose 2 one pointers or 1 two pointer, since regen costs 1 point.
>>1627373Strength and Durability please
>>1627428Alright then, calling it, Regen LV 2, Strength LV 2, and Durability LV 2! >Writing first official post!
>>1627373Guess I'll change shapeshifting for>Strength >Durability
You are floating in a gold expanse. All around you, the whole world gleams like an Imperial Palace, filling you with an incandescent warmth. It’s like being next to the sun… you feel like a lizard. You feel safe. Ye feel happy… We feel connected. It’s like sharing a bed with a loved one, and feeling their residual heat radiate from their adoration of you. Makes you feel appreciated. Wanted. OneThough… you feel something odd on you limb… above your limb actually. On your shoulder. You look to see, and there’s… black. Leaking from a scar on your shoulder. It floats from the open wound and into the golden void, more and more coming out from the scar as it accumulates into a black blob in front of you. You feel choking. You can’t breathe and you… you—You vomit up uncontrollably, spewing black gunk from your throat. It’s getting in your nose, you feel it crawling through your tear ducts, and you cry this ooze. There is no pain but you are terrified beyond belief. You try to scream, but in this vacuous halcyon place, you can only manage a muffled gurgle. Louder and louder you scream, greater and greater the orb of black glows and suddenly… two white slits spread upon it, expanding upon its surface and forming… eyes.One more slit open up on the obsidian abomination, revealing a pit of fangs, ivory white like its eyes. Its spreads it mouth open, your gilded dream now an inky black nightmare. CRUNCH[>cont.
>>1627512On a side note I LOVE this spoiler function, it makes for a great narrative tool for showing the symbiotes fuckery. Next post incoming.
>cont.Once again you wake up, almost with a yelp as you quickly shoot up from your bed and tear the covers from your body. Immediately you check your shoulder for anything and thankfully, nothing is there. “Scarab?”You call out, and sure enough, there is a response.“Your heart rate slowed again, and then suddenly spiked before you woke. Is everything alright? Are we safe?“Yeah,” you take a moment to slow your breathing, and feel for your heartbeat… just in case, “I had… a nightmare.”“I saw. Your cerebrum experienced increased activity, a spike in adrenaline. But, there was no physical danger. Was there?”You snigger a bit.“No, not unless you count Robert Englund.”“Who?”“Never mind. I really need to teach you a few things don’t I?”“I learn as you do. I do not have access to any memory prior to our bonding. Not without your permission.”Huh. Well that’s good to know. You look at the clock and see it’s 5:30 AM, way before you alarm goes off. What do you want to do?>Screw it. Get dressed, grab a bite to eat on your way to school.>Get a morning workout in. You feel… a lot stronger.>Go shit posting on /cg/. (about what?)>Write-in?

You stretch your arms above your head, popping and cracking your joints as you do. With a yawn you step out of bed and stand in the middle of your room. You decide it’s time to use that pull up bar you’ve got in your closet that you never used. You hook it up to the strongest frame in the house and begin working your upper body. Were you always this light? Hell you feel you could go on for a while an- oh wait, it’s 6:30. You’ve spent an hour on this thing and didn’t even notice! Sweet! You’re not even all that sweaty! Though you suppose you should take a shower regardless.You make your way to your battle station. You click it on and are greeted by its familiar hum of four separate fans, reminding you a lot of a Bowing 747 taking off. You open Chrome and head to 4chan, logging in because FUCK captcha and it’s like, 5 dollars a month anyways. You’ll be honest, you’ve not seen much of 4chan in the wee hours of the morning. Yeah you’ve seen it a say, 3 am but never at 5:30. This is new ground for you. But, no, still the same. Japan’s bragging about gassing Muties, saying they beat the Germans to it. Wakandan deniers. Frogs insulting the Brit-Bongs over the wielder of Excalibur being a Muslim. Yep. It’s home.You start yourself a new thread, asking the controversial question, “Who’ve YOU known that’s been ‘caped’?”.Fairly standard question, honestly a bit deserved, what with the Terrigen Mist floating around near Russia and Africa. A few replies get you the standard, “What are you, Mutant Control? Cyclops was right” copy pastas, going off on rants about the Mutants Rights and X-Man Leader. There’s a few actually good answers, though most of them being about Inhumans. Brothers and sister who can now fly or shoot lasers out their asses, and a good portion of them being taken away by Inhuman representatives or SHIELD to do God knows what. For some life is kinda normal and a few others want to be heroes. Guess there’s always the few odd balls. There’s even one detailing how the poor bastard got turned into a slug. He was already messed with for being fat before but now he says, the pity burns like salt. “These others seem very… spastic.[/spoiler]”“Yeah, they’re a bunch of faggots.”“Faggots?”“I’ll explain when you’re older.”So really, nothing exceptionally “out of the ordinary”. Only thing that catches your eye is the surprising amount of Ms. Marvel propaganda. I mean come on, she’s obviously still alien right? By all technicality anyways.You check your clock, and you’ve got a solid 30 minutes.>Maybe you could web your way to school? Gotta make sure not to be seen morphing in and out of the suit though. >Just eat a calm breakfast and make your way to the bus normally.>You know what? Skip school today. Go out and find some bad guys to punch with your new found strength!
>>1627710>Just eat a calm breakfast and make your way to the bus normally.
>>1627710FUCK this thing is annoying. I keep doing it right, putting slashes where they're supposed to be but THIS keeps happening!

>>1627758>Implying we can't websling with toast hanging out of our mouths to multitask, before making a sharp corner around a skyscraper and colliding with Spooder-manIt's like you've never read Mongolian Dark Horse comics before.
>>1627768I'll be frank, the only Dark Horse comic I've ever read was The Goon. Which was pretty funny actually.
You know what? You’re going to use those thirty minutes as you like. With a nice, calm, slow, relaxing breakfast. You head on down and you actually hear some bacon sizzling on the stove. Lovely meaty aroma. You also smell a pot of tea. Uncle must’ve gotten up late, he’s usually out of the house by now.In the kitchen, sure enough, you find the old man. Hunched over the stove and pressing the bacon into the pan. Holy shit he’s even got some pancakes ready! How does he now wake you up more often, the mixer looks recently used! “Morning Uncle,” you announce yourself, startling him slightly.“Oh! Vladimir! You’re up earlier than usual. I was just about to have breakfast! Come and join me.”You do exactly that, grabbing yourself a plate and silverware, along with your jug of Tropicania Orange Juice. Can’t afford name brand. You pour yourself a glass and hand Uncle your plate, where he serves you up a two pancake stack, putting a slice of butter with some maple syrup he had stored away drizzled on top. Bacon of course, goes right next to it.“I’d have made more had I know you’d wake up so early,” he says, placing his own plate and tea cup across the table from you, “What’s the occasion? Now that I mention it you look… bigger than when I saw you yesterday.”“Yeah Uncle it’s this new uh… diet, I’ve been trying out. Works wonders.”“Seems so! Maybe I should try it out some time!” He lets out a jovial laugh, one you’d expect Santa Clause to have on his off day. This man never fails to bring a smile to your face.“Anyways, what woke you up so early? You’re usually not here till seven!”>Tell him about the dream… or rather, nightmare.>Don’t tell him… say you dreamt instead of… your mom and dad.>Avoid the whole thing altogether, say you didn’t set your alarm correctly.
>>1627827>Don’t tell him… say you dreamt instead of… your mom and dad.
>>1627827>>Tell him about the dream… or rather, nightmare.
Tell you what guys, I'll pick this back up tomorrow, cause I'm tired as shit. It's 3:07AM, I need sleep. I'll see you then guys. Sorry. Gimme any feedback you might have.
>>1627827>"Yeah I woke up earlier today for some reason. Decided to Carpe Diem and just go with it."Write ins are allowed, right?
>>1627827>>Tell him about the dream… or rather, nightmare.If there's anyone we can trust with this besides the Symbiote itself, it's Uncle.

Well, you’ve got to bring it up some time. Might as well be now, over this nice breakfast.“I… I had a nightmare actually, Uncle.”“Oh?”“Yeah, everything started out great but… there was this horrible blob that came out of nowhere and ate everything, including me.”Your Uncle listens intently, chewing on his pancake. He swallows and proceeds to sip his tea.“Well… was there anything in particular that could have given you this nightmare? You were witness to a super hero brawl not two days ago…”“I mean… I guess I’ve been kinda stressed by school but…”You’re not too sure about this. You doubt anyone knows yet of your heroic antics, and this IS your Uncle after all… but, come on man. It’s Capes 101, if anybody finds out who you are they go after your family first… can you really divulge this secret to him?This is a major decision… and so early in your life too…>Decide against it. Don’t tell him, just reassure him that everything’s normal, and tune down the heroics too. Focus on your studies. >Oh screw it, you need to tell him. You’ve got the power to do great things and help people, to do some real good in this world, and you need him to know. If you can’t trust Uncle who CAN you trust? Sorry for the short post all, no worries, it'll get longer as time goes.
>>1629470>Decide against it. Don’t tell him, just reassure him that everything’s normal, and tune down the heroics too. Focus on your studies.
>>1629470>Oh screw it, you need to tell him. You’ve got the power to do great things and help people, to do some real good in this world, and you need him to know. If you can’t trust Uncle who CAN you trust?
>>1629470>trust himfor gods sake if we don't we are going to have this "oh why did you not tell me" crap every hero has when their deceit is found out.and just use scarabs sense to check if anyone else is around
>>1629470>>Oh screw it, you need to tell him. You’ve got the power to do great things and help people, to do some real good in this world, and you need him to know. If you can’t trust Uncle who CAN you trust?It's not like he's going to scream it on the roof.
>>1629496this is true it is always like this
>>1629496>Scarab senseI don't think it works that way.
>>1629470>Oh screw it, you need to tell him. You’ve got the power to do great things and help people, to do some real good in this world, and you need him to know. If you can’t trust Uncle who CAN you trust? I trust his beard.
>>1629483>>1629489>>1629496>>1629497>>1629506Alright it looks as if trusting Uncle wins it. Everyone cool with it or do you want an extra 10 minutes?
>>1629506>>1629489>>1629483>>1629497>>1629496Well shit, I'm against it but I'm clearly outvoted so whatever then I guess.
>>1629526im cool with it
>>1629527>>1629528>>1629532Alrighty then, >writing.
>>1629611SON OF A BITCH WHAT THE FUCK IGNORE THAT ONE SECOND
You sigh. You need to tell him.“Uncle… I… have to confess something.”“Of course, but right after I finish this last cup of tea.”“Uncle, this is kind of urgent.““More urgent than tea? Oh this is serious. Alright,” he takes a last sip and leans slightly over the table, awaiting this earth-shattering, tea interrupting news, “I’m ready.”So. It’s come to this.“Alright… so… I… I might be a super hero.” “Vladimir I do not approve of this.” Scarab says, its voice warbling as if nervous. But the cat’s out of the bag. No turning back now. Your muscles tense and you brace… though nothing happens.There’s a silence in the dining room. For a while the only sound you can hear is the ticking of the clock hanging on the wall that the previous owner had left. Uncle takes another sip of tea and lets out a satisfied "aaah". Feels like a Coke commercial. He refills the cup from the kettle and looks back at you.“…Are you not surprised?” You ask, finally breaking the silence. “I’d be lying if I wasn’t a bit surprised yes, but… how else do you explain the sudden triceps? I’ve seen your form and trust me, I knew something was amiss. I’m relieved honestly, I thought you had dipped into steroids!”“Oh… so… you’re not mad?”“Why would I be mad? My nephew’s a super hero! Just wait till I tell my book club!”“Uncle!”“I’m joking! Joking. Don’t worry. You’re secret is safe with me. We’ve all got our fair share of secrets, and I’m happy you trust me so much as to share it. Thank you Vlad. Just don’t let it get to your head,” he says, giving you a slight wink, “Oh! Is that the time! You need to get to school!”Oh shit he’s right, it’s 7:30! >RUSH TO THE BUS! >NO TIME! Grab yourself a piece of toast and sling out the window!>Have Uncle drive you!
>>1629611>NO TIME! Grab yourself a piece of toast and sling out the window!
>>1629613no time rush out of the window
>>1629617>NO TIME! Grab yourself a piece of toast and sling out the window!
>>1629617>RUSH TO THE BUS!Also give him a big hug before we leave.
>>1629616I don't know what the fuck is going on but it's spoiling everything when I tell it to either bolden or italicize it. It's bullshit and I will not accept it. Ignore the deleted post.
>>1629617>NO TIME! Grab yourself a piece of toast and sling out the window!>>1629624Ah, ok then. Was just confused.

>>1629651Alright then, the stylized way to travel.
>>1629651May we at least hug our Uncle beforehand?
>>1629651i thought it was jump out the window and run?
>>1629657You may, I will include exactly that.>>1629662Nah when I said sling I meant literally sling.
>>1629665Is gliding possible with our current elasticity and strength, or will we have to get stronger/more elastic/get shape shifting?
>>1629680Gliding I was planning on having evolve with shape shifting and elasticity. Outright flight you'd need both those and LV 2 Strength which, thankfully you have. You're a quarter of the way there sport!
>>1629685>Gliding+slinging= Just Cause 3 style of moving aroundI want this so bad.
>>1629685>>1629695Sweet, wasn't even sure if you would allow full blown flight, that fucking rocks! plus it'll actually make the scarab part make sense. I was thinking we slowly develop our costumes appearance to be more armor then skin tight, like Flash Thompson but less edgy/military and more just shell-like. That with flight and we'd really be a golden scarab!
>>1629685>>1629710Ignore the file name.
>>1629710I'll be honest I am dying for a drawfriend to get this but in gold. It just makes sense. Feel naked without that.>>1629713And yeah, that's pretty damn cool! Post coming up soon.
OH SNAP! You nab yourself a piece of toast from the table before quickly rushing upstairs. You halt midway though, hurriedly going back down the stairs, almost slipping on the way. Before he can get up from his seat to put away his tea, you wrap your arms around him. You hug your Uncle. He hugs you back. You let go before you gives you a pat on the back.“Do be proud out there kid!”You plan to.You rush up the stairs, grab your back pack and sling it over your shoulder, your suit quickly enveloping you as you leap from your window! Thank GOD you live near a lot of high rises or this would’ve gone REALLY badly! You let loose a tendril from your wrist and HOIST! Soon you’re swinging from building to building, corner to corner, street to street! The wind rushes past you, the street blurring as you woosh past. It feels amazing.“Vladimir, I do not approve of your actions! You could have endangered us,” Scarab speaks out.“Scarab, it’s my Uncle! He’s family,” you tell the extraterrestrial as you kick forward, bringing your momentum to peak as you fly above and onto a nearby roof, “I needed to let him know or the guilt would kill me.”“Oh… then I suppose it was a wise decision.”“No, I don’t mean literally- it’s just… he’s the only person I trust. Kirk is my best friend, yeah, but he’s a bit of a blabber mouth so I might not end up telling him at all. My point is if I don’t let someone, at least one person know, then I’d be constantly worried about what would happen if they or anyone else finds out.”“Ah… I believe I understand”You doubt it does but eh, maybe it does.Suddenly, you hear screaming down the street and see cars being flipped over by some kind of… very angry elephant? >fuck that, get to school!>Maybe go check it out.>Forget standing by, get down there and start saving people!
>>1629765>Forget standing by, get down there and start saving people!
Be back soon guys, need to run down to the store real quick. Someone do me a huge favor and get a drawfriend in here to draw our suit and discern what the hell our MC looks like.
>>1629765>>Forget standing by, get down there and start saving people!
>>1629791Okay and maybe cheek it out, don't commit until we know what's happening. We don't want to step on spiders toes
>>1629794found these on deviantart would fit with the name
>>1629806Huh,if we change the face to something more Spidey-like and make it more bulky it may look good.
>>1629813supportlook what i found spider dreads!
>>1629813This, the overall design/costume is fine, the coloring great. What I would do though, is keep the Spider-Man-esque mask how we have now and the overall more muscular and human look we got. The skinny alien look and the weird digits and nails aren't all that appealing. But great costume overall. I'd also make it thicker and somewhat plated, similar to how flash did it with his variation, so that we look more beetle like. What if we had the symbiote make us larger so we look different from normal, similar to Eddie Brock and Lee Price? It would up our intimidation factor and make it way harder to recognize us, what with a different body type and all.
>>1629838support exactly what i was thinking we do it like symbiots normaly do and do you think we can shapeshift spider legs/limbs?
>>1629771>>1629776>>1629791>>1629797Alright then! I am back and it looks like you're going to be a hero! >Writing.
On a site note guys, GREAT ideas for the costume! It'll go really well when you can actually fly!
Those certainly don’t sound like screams of joy, and now that you take a closer look, that’s a goddamn rhinoceros loose in the street! It’s grabbing and flipping automobiles indiscriminately as if saying to the world “Come kick my ass, I dare you!”. Jesus H.G. Christ, it’s like someone’s deviant art page leaped from the screen. Huh. That’s pretty good actually, you should use that! No, now’s not the time for quips! That comes later.“Scarab! You see what I see?”“We are bonded, I see and hear all that you do.”You have no clue what time it is since you forgot to wear a watch and your new phone doesn’t arrive till next week, but screw it, you figure you’re going to be late anyways. “We need to stop him, and fast before more people get hurt!”“Will our reward be immediate?”“Probably not, but no worries! The more and more threats we take out the sooner our reward will be!”And the less threats there are to the bondYou leap off the building, your swing casually building up momentum as you quickly descend to the street. You swear that anthro thing is sniffing the air, as if catching your scent. Sure enough it rears its ugly face at you, and lets out a guttural roar more beast than man. It takes a car from the road with a kid in it and before the child can exit, he launches it at you through the air! JESUS H!>Let the car hit you! Crawl in the car when it does and save the kid! >Web the car between the buildings! You can do that right? >Catch it! Try and land gently with it in your hands!
>>1629973>Let the car hit you! Crawl in the car when it does and save the kid!
>>1629973>Catch it! Try and land gently with it in your hands!
>>1629973what anthro thing i am confused?
>>1629973>>>1629973>Catch it! Try and land gently with it in your hands!
Now that I mention it I should say that the car has a window open, hence why you could crawl in there. Should have explained better.>>1630037I mean the Rhino. He's pretty much just an anthropomorphic rhino with that suit on.
>>1629973>that’s a goddamn rhinoceros loose in the street!>>1629973>it’s like someone’s deviant art page leaped from the screen.>>1629765>by some kind of… very angry elephant?>>1630037He's referring to the rhino-like entity.
>>1629973>>1630041i change to this>>Let the car hit you! Crawl in the car when it does and save the kid!
>>1630044no problem but please dont leave out important details
>>1630050Does no one here know the Rhino? Aleksei Sytsevich? Once a member of the Sinister Six? Tussled with the fucking Juggernaut? Faught Spidey on numerous occasions? No one?
>>1630065I do, but I think they're trying to be in-character with this.
>>1630050i did not see those lines i am embarrassed
>>1629973>>Let the car hit you! Crawl in the car when it does and save the kid!

>>1630092>Let the car hit you! Crawl in the car when it does and save the kid!
>>1630098It's a /qst/ meme. A while back a dude named Velo was running a Game of Thrones quest and was caught trying to railroad the vote by samefagging and phone posting.

>>1630256As our abilities increase, will we start to not need rolls for things?Like at higher levels of agility/strength/etc. we won't need to roll to climb up a chain fence or something.
>>1630274Eeeeh, I was debating whether or not to do that as Crusty did. I'll tell you what, at certain levels you'll no longer have to roll for mundane things. Say at agility LV 4 you won't have to roll for stuff like this.
>>1630362That'd be good. And also the most logical choice.Also, post already.
>>1630367I will, sorry this is taking so long. I thought it blue screened but thank fuck it was just a memory dump, but it deleted a lot of my progress. No worries though, I keep logs. Post incoming.
>>1630375I don't know about you, but thats why I use google docs. Don't got to worry about losing shit
You cut the swing short mid arch, and stiffen your body into a pencil position going through the thin hole that the open window allows you. In that brief moment you nab the kid from his seat via tendril which is made all the more easy as he had thankfully removed his seat belt. You smash through the other window with your feet, making sure to cover the kid up best as possible. Now out for the car and still in midair you swing back down into the street while the green Ford crashes and explodes a safe distance away from anyone. A blond woman rushes out from the crowd, presumably the mother. “Timmy!” She exclaims, as you hand the kid over to her.“Oh thank God you’re safe! Thank you, thank you Spider-Man!”“I’m not Spider-Man but, you’re very welcome!” “Oh… then, please! Who are you?”You can see a few cameras recording you, awaiting your response. Luckily, you know just what to say this time around.“Scarab. Golden Scarab. Remember the name! You’ll be hearing it a lot! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I got myself a Rhino to catch.”You swing back into action before landing atop a bent lamp post. The enraged pachyderm still crushing and throwing cars.>Grab his attention with a quip! >Forget formalities, get in there and punch him! >Web yourself onto his back and blind him, then make a joke about Rhinos and eyesight.>Write-in?

Id love to see if we could figure out how to make plate shells all around our body, like armor. That together with eings and the whole scarab thing will make a lot more sense
>>1630493*with wings, not eings
>>1630510We're young and still discovering our powers. That's probably doable.
With an almost “twip” sound your tendril latches onto the back of his giant nape, landing yourself on his shoulders. The second you do he jerks and bucks back, his roaring increasing. Like one of those bucking Broncho rides that no one can quite seem to win you’re having a hard time even with an adhesive touch. Gently you make your way up to his head an-SHUNKA sharp pain suddenly erupts from your ribs. You got to close to his goddamn head and he jerked it in just the right angle and direction to penetrate the outer most layer of the suit, leaving a good sized stab wound with his horn. He retracts his horn and grabs you from his back, throwing and slamming you into a faraway car. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck Your head is swimming and your vision is kinda blurry from having been used as a canon projectile. You can just barely make out the form of him, dragging his foot, getting ready to charge. He does so, ground shaking as he gets closer and closer with each bounding step.“VLADIMIR!! This foe is too strong! Give me more control!>No! You can save youself from this mess! Dodge out of the way and recover! (1d20-1)>Fine! Take the wheel!

You’ve got very little choice in the matter. You know the suit will help with the wounds but this? It might be out of its league. Really only one option here.“Fine,” you hiss through your teeth as you hold the bleeding gap closed, “But do not kill!”“I shall try my best. I shall simply hurt him, as he has hurt you.”Aw, he(she?) cares about you. Time seems to slow to a crawl as you close your eyes and just… let go. It’s a really out of body experience. You feel like a fly on the wall. The next moment you open your eyes it turns out time really IS at a crawl. Rhinos break neck speed suddenly looks like a leisurely jog. With speed that surprises even you your arm rockets to the nearest building and shoots off a tendril, which it uses to hoists itself from his path and into safety. He SLAMS into the car you had previously dented, practically destroying any hope of ever driving it again. He lifts himself up along with the car impaled on the tip of his horn.Now’s our chanceYou fire off another tendril at the bottom of the car, and heave yourself back down to ground level, where you SMASH onto it, forcing it lower onto his head and down to his neck! Like an oversized flea collar! From their we land in front of him and deliver a DEVASTATING series of rights and lefts to him as he tries in vain to reach for you, only for the car to halve his reach! WHAMWHAMWHAMWHAMFinally he shouts angrily, “ENOUGH,” before gripping and RIPPING the front portion of the car in half! You almost stumble as he throws it away like a Frisbee, with you still on it! Another tendril grabs onto a wall and slings you back around, where you come barreling back and kick him car first in the face! He staggers back as you flip to safety a yards away. You wonder if you can speak.“You know, with a horn that big I can’t help but feel you’re compensating for something.”This earns you another scream from him.>Continue our assault! Beat him into submission! >We’ve wasted enough time here, we need to get to school! >Show boat for the crowd, really get our name out there.
>>1630656>>Continue our assault! Beat him into submission!
>>1630656WEB HIM UP.He's still a threat!

>>1630662support and are our webs golden?
>>1630656>Continue our assault! Beat him into submission!Supporting>>1630662Using webbing to tie him down so we can get out of here is a good idea. Otherwise we are in an endurance/strength test there's a decent chance he could ultimately win.Also, we didn't need to roll to get out of the way? That's nice.
>>1630656>Continue our assault! Beat him into submission!>>1630662also this
>>1630673They can be if enough people say they are.>>1630675Rolls come after this vote as a matter of fact, thus far Assault and webbery win the vote. That okay with everyone?
>>1630681Don't ask if it's okay with everyone.If they win the vote, then they win the vote.
>>1630684NIGGA IT'S MY QUEST I WANNA MAKE SURE THE WHOLE PLAYER BASE IS OKAY WITH THEIR DECISION. CALL IT PANDERING IF YOU WANT BUT I WANT A NICE EXPERIENCE FOR ALL PLAYERS AND NONE OF THAT PHASEBRO BULLSHIT THAT LASTS THE WHOLE FUCKING TIME ALWAYS GOING ON ABOUT HOW PHASING NEVER WINSAlright, angry webbing wins, let's roll! 1d20+2, best of three please.

>>1630705Noice.Now we're only going to be a few minutes late for school. That's what's important.
I have no idea what I'm doing.This color is gold right?Anyway, decided to do some quick drawfagging while QM does his thing.I'm not very good at it, and I used a mouse in paint for it so until someone that actually works at the craft shows up this'll have to do.Two of these are possible shape-shifting ideas; Scarab horn and wings respectively, kinda got the idea that the less in control MC is of the symbiote the more insect-like it gets or maybe as a power-up of sorts.Some related? music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfJn7Q8ydIo
>>1630777I like it.
>>1630777Oh yeah man, that's freakin' great! Horn is a good add on!
>>1630777I like it. Although considering we already made quips about Rhino's horn and over-compensation we're really opening ourselves up to some scathing in-combat taunting.
>>1630777A horn! I was going to suggest that.I like those ideas and your drawing is good enough
>>1630788We could tell Rhino "My horn's bigger than yours."
>>1630777i like the one with the horn and wings

We need to wrap this up.Heh, wrap this up. Like with webs. Heheh. He charges you and you leap out of the way, latching a tendril on his back once more, where THIS time, woo this time. You swing back and under his legs, at just the right time that you aren’t crushed violently, and pull yourself back up via tendril that you stuck to his mouth! You swing back over his shoulder, back around in a criss-cross X formation, delivering kicks and and punches as you swing up and down and up and down and up and down his massive frame. Before you know it he trips up and falls face first into the wrecked pavement below, with you luckily on his back. It’s over. Holy shit you just took down a super villain! Play it cool, play it cool, deep breaths. Don’t nerd out. Victory screech coms later! Speaking of which are you back in control? You twitch a finger experimentally, so as to not break your pose that people are no doubt filming, sure enough, it was you who twitched it and not Scarab.“That… was amazing.” You partially whisper to Scarab.“Where is our reward?”“I have a feeling we’ll get one… soon enough.”“The woman whose offspring we saved… maybe she has something for you?”That raises a good question… really the only reason you want to graduate high school is to get yourself a job and support Uncle. This… maybe this is your true calling? >No, no, this is exactly what Uncle meant. You can set up a Patreon or something later but right now, your education is top priority.>Fuck that man, you just saved these people’s lives! It’s not easy being a hero in the big city, handling problems the cops can’t solve themselves! You need a budget! (Requires roll, MIGHT affect your standing…)
>>1630827>No, no, this is exactly what Uncle meant. You can set up a Patreon or something later but right now, your education is top priority.
>>1630827>>No, no, this is exactly what Uncle meant. You can set up a Patreon or something later but right now, your education is top priority.
>>1630827>No, no, this is exactly what Uncle meant. You can set up a Patreon or something later but right now, your education is top priority.What would we do with more money? Just buy more things to waste more time for something that isn't ultimately rewarding. What we did right now: Saving people and bringing criminals to justice - that is the true reward in and of itself.
>>1630827>No, no, this is exactly what Uncle meant. You can set up a Patreon or something later but right now, your education is top priority.honestly if it wasnt for the uncle part of this option i would have gone with the other one
>>1630839Same here.Now, either no stealing or only stealing something we can totally get away with scot-free.
>>1630831>>1630834>>1630835>>1630837>>1630839>>1630848Goddamn y'all is some righteous mother fuckers.Uncle is proud. >Writing.
WOAH, Woah, woah, woah… No. Certainly not.Your Uncle raised you better than this! Plus you need to get to school. With a wave and a two fingered salute to the crowd a ways away, you fasten a tendril to the nearest high-rise and swing off into the distance. As you rise and descend rhythmically you recall your Uncles words. Hell you can practically hear his voice in your head, in that sagely tone whenever he says something profound.“Taking money from strangers for protecting them, makes you no better than a mobster.”You’re sure it wasn’t exactly that but, eh, it’s close.“Vlad who was that?”“What was was what?” “That sudden voice from your cerebral cortex.”That’ odd… can Scarab hear your thoughts?“I was recalling my Uncles words.”There’s an awkward silence for a few seconds…“Scarab could you hear my thoughts the whole time?”“…Maybe?” Cheeky rat, he totally could!Well, regardless, Mid-Town High is coming into view. You check the big clock across the street from the building and, huh. You’re only two periods late. You thought that fight had lasted longer. Hey, gift horses, mouths. You land on the roof of the building and creep through an open window to the bathroom, and the suit slips off from you, back… you assume underneath your skin? Yeah, it kinda feels that way.You’ve got math class in a few minutes.An hour ago you were fighting an overgrown taxidermy project. Now you’re trying not to fail geometry. You wonder if anyone else in Mid-Town High has these problems… You doubt it.___________________________________And that’s all for today’s session folks!
