Decades ago, the world was mundane and not so dissimilar to our own. Then in a mysterious burst of prismatic light, one percent of one percent of the population manifested superpowers, unnatural capabilities far beyond the means of ordinary men, and the world was forever changed. In the wake of the Happening, society came close to collapse but through the efforts of heroes everywhere, both super and ordinary, some semblance of civilization survived and in time, adjusted to its new reality. Even years after the Happening, spontaneous manifestations of superpowers persisted and as supers settled down to start families, their children inherited their powers and carried on their legacy.You are a super, a person endowed with inhuman abilities, and whether you'll strive to lift up the common man or abuse them to your own ends remains to be seen.> Before we begin, what tone would you prefer?> [Choose One]> Gritty> Gonzo

Before we can continue, I must explain a core concept of the setting. Superpowers are ranked on a tier system ranging from 1 to 20, and are assigned a tier based on their strength, a tier 1 superpower grants a slight edge over a common citizen, a tier 5 superpower is enough to confront a squad of trained professionals on equal footing, a tier 10 superpower could destroy a small town with little difficulty, a tier 15 superpower could destroy a large city, and a tier 20 superpower could pose a threat to human civilization.> To determine which tier your powers fall under, you receive a stipend of power points which can be spent to upgrade powers, at the cost of 1 per tier between tiers 1-5, 2 per tier between tiers 6-10, 3 per tier between tiers 11-15, and 4 per tier between tiers 16-20. In addition, 2 power points can buy an additional superpower roll within a category you have, and 4 power points can buy an additional roll in a randomly determined category you lack. Power points can be gained by sacrificing unwanted superpowers and an unused category at a 1:1 ratio.> Because you chose to roll 1d6+2, you have choice to determine how many power points you receive. Do you want to take a guaranteed 10 power points, or do you want to roll 2d6+2 and take the result?
Rolled 3, 3 + 2 = 8 (2d6 + 2)>>27553522d6+2 result
Rolled 1 + 2 (1d6 + 2)>>2755352
>>2755352I vote to take 10 points
>>2755356>>2755360>>2755362>>2755382> Five minutes to choose before I roll 1d2
>>2755389Take the 10 points Boi
>>2755403>>2755404> So be it.> You receive 10 power points by default, and an automatic sacrifice of the extra Disruption grants 1, leaving you with 11 power points.> How do you want to distribute them? Keep tier costs and sacrifices in mind.
>>2755415Can we have an explanation on what the powers do?
>>2755415Add a new random power
>>2755420That's over a third of our power points
>>2755420Don't be so hasty, this could be a strong powerset with clever use.>>2755417Of course.> Matter Control> Disruption- Allows the user to destabilize molecular bonds at will. The damage and range is dependent on the tier.> Bonding- Allows the user to strengthen molecular bonds at will. The resiliency and range is dependent on the tier.> Collection- Allows the user to attract nearby matter to themselves. The strength and range is dependent on the tier.> Energy Control> Ectoplasm Control- Allows the user to control and shape extradimensional spirit energy to achieve a variety of effects. The strength and versatility is dependent on the tier.> Energy Sponge- Allows to absorb energy into themselves and release it, either harmlessly or as an attack. The strength, damage, and range are dependent on the tier.> Energy Plasmoids- Allows the user to control and shape energy to form physical patterns which may then explode. The strength, versatility, damage, and range are dependent on the tier.
>>2755440> DisruptionPull people by there atoms> Bonding-Make our skin as strong as steel or greater> CollectionMagnet>Ectoplasm Control-Fuck with people's souls
>>2755440...we can go Scar ( full metal alchemist )Only we also shoot ghosts, absorb energy and release it as energy or plasmids bioshock style?Pretty nice
>>2755440Sponge and plasmoids seems fun. Then again disruption and bonding could become disgustingly OP. Create our own universe when?
>>2755440Sponge is really, really good. Synergises well with plasmoids, too.Ectoplasm seems really situational. Either it's amazing or completely worthless.Collection... is it strictly self-aligned? If we can only pull things to us, it's not great. If we can use it to pull things towards something other than us, it gets a lot more useful.
>>2755336Of course.>>2755450Unless you're extremely creative with it, disrupting the molecules holding someone together doesn't pull them toward you. Aside that, that's about the gist of it.>>2755451I've never played Bioshock, but that sounds correct. Of course, you'll need to tell me how you're going to be splitting up your points before the quest can go anywhere.>>2755453The best part about the generator is the amount of choice. Depending on how you distribute your power points, you can either be relatively threatening with each of your powers, or you can be dangerous with only a few. The choice is yours to make.>>2755460Ectoplasm can be used for physical attacks, i.e., ghostly tentacles, soul-fire, etc., but it's most effective against spiritual foes. Once you've progressed through the tiers and can effect souls directly, it gets horrific.At first, collection is strictly self-aligned though there's plenty of creative uses for it and you can always stop mass before it reaches you. Once you've gained enough tiers, you can cause mass to attract other mass, which has a massive amount of offensive and defensive utility.I need you to assign your points before the quest can begin.
>>2755512Pull people towards us with collection then blow up in their face with sponge letsgo
>>2755534I vote for sacrificing disruption and bonding. Then "evenly" distributing the 13 points across the 4 remaining powers with 1 extra in sponge. Alternatively sacrificing ectoplasm aswell to buff up the energy powers even more
>>2755540Agreed on the general idea, but skewed heavier towards sponge. Either 6 or 8 points to bring it to 6 or 7.So, something like:Burn Disruption+Bonding, 6 points into Energy Sponge, 3 points into Energy Plasmoids, 2 points into Matter Collection, 2 points into Ectoplasm Control?
>>2755563Yeah that sounds better
>>2755512Sacrifice ectoplasm control and spend the points like this.> disruption (5)> bonding (2)> collection (2)> energy sponge (4)> energy plasmoids (4)
>>2755512We can delete abilities for more points?
>>2755120Doesn't superman fly pose have a closed fist in front? This one just looks like a Nazi salute. Hail Hydra! Or whatever DC's 'hidden Nazi' equivalent is.
>>2755721Yes, at a 1:1 ratio.>>2756333I believe so, but if he were a Nazi, he'd be flying with his right arm outstretched.Waiting for a consensus.
You guys have one hour to decide, before I update with whatever's the majority.
You guys have half an hour left.
I vote to sacrifice ectoplasm control and disruption. Disruption is just a plain stupid damage dealer and ectoplasm control we might never use. Both are clearly bad, uninteresting choices.>bonding 2>collection 4>energy plasmoids 3>energy sponge 4This way we can see these clearly more interesting powers get more use.
>>2755540>>2755563This is the closest we have to a majority, so I'm updating.
>>2755563> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3Is this sufficient, or would you like to move some more points around?
>>2756726...I think I must have mathed wrong somewhere. By my count that array would cost 12 points, leaving one left over.I've been looking at it for the past five minutes, but I keep getting the same answer.
Seems fine to me
>>2756775Yeah you're right. Put the extra point in plasmoids or ectoplasm control?
>>2756775>>2756726Unless that's meant to be points spent, not power levels. In which case it's 14, which is one over.
>>2756775Wait a minute...> five seconds of scrambling through notes laterOh shit, you're right, I accidentally included Energy Sponge's first tier in the cost. Where do you want to put the thirteenth point?>>2756804No, that's power levels. Here's my *corrected* math, remember the first point is free.> Collection (1+1= 1)> Ectoplasm Control (1+1= 1)> Energy Sponge (1+4+4= 8)> Energy Plasmoids (1+2= 2)> (1+1+8+3= 12)
Ectoplasm Control>Still in character gen
>>2756841Oh, good. I was strating to think I was too tired to do basic addition.Put the extra into plasmoids. Gives us more we can do with what we sponge.So, that'd beCollection=lv2(pay 1 point)Ectoplasm Control=lv2(pay 1 point)Energy Sponge=lv7(pay 8 points)Energy Plasmoids=lv4(pay 3 points)

With focus, you can bring a few handfuls of spirit energy into the material for a few moments, set it alight and throw it with the force of a mildly explosive revolver, or congeal it into a tentacle roughly twice as strong as your arm.> Energy Sponge, Tier 7: You can passively or actively absorb an immense quantity of energy, be it heat, electricity, or friction, into your body and safely hold it indefinitely or until it dissipates after roughly four hours. You can also release your stored energy in a devastating attack, similar to a flamethrower or mortar, though you can only repeat this a few times before you need to refuel.> Energy Plasmoids, Tier 3: You passively generate a small store of energy, capping out equivalent to a car battery after six hours. You can shape your stored energy into a variety of explosive shapes, which can then explode with the force of a pipe-bomb, or a fragmentation grenade if you use everything you've stored. You can also shoot a beam with the range of half a football field capable of melting a hole in steel, but you can only maintain this for a few moments at a time.> Your Energy Sponge and Energy Plasmoid use the same source, and either reservoir can be used for either power at no additional cost.> How did you gain your powers to begin with?> Inheritance: One or both of your parents was a super, and they passed their powers onto you.> + You have a supportive family with superpowers similar to your own, and have had years to train with them.> - Your family will require your help from time to time and until you can prove yourself to society at large, you'll forever be in your parent's shadow.> Spontaneous: Like millions of others, your superpowers awakened suddenly, without warning.> + You have no obligations or responsibilities whatsoever, save those you take on yourself, and to begin, nobody else knows of your abilities.> - You've only gotten your superpowers last week and you're unfamiliar with their use.

You slip the spatula into your belt loop, breathe in to push your chest up, and walk out into the restaurant proper with what you hope is a confident stride. Three African American youths, and one white poser, are holding Deshawn at gunpoint and you quickly assess the situation.The white boy and one of the youths are wielding bludgeons, an aluminum and wooden baseball bat, respectively, another youth is gripping a stainless steel machete, and most concerningly, the oldest youth has a 9mm pistol held sideways in Deshawn's face. Each of them is wearing some sort of mask and none of them is so much as skimming through the menu. Yup, this is a violation of the NAP in progress.You call out, "DESHAWN!" The urban youths stop shouting to stare at you and Deshawn, voice trembling, speaks. "W-watcha n-need honkey?" Doing your best to ignore the bludgeons and oversized jungle knife leveled at you, you reply. "It appears to me, you're in the midst of a predicament. Fortunately for you, I am a superhuman, and am willing to use my powers to resolve the situation for a fair price." The well-armed urbanites stare at you in shock, and Deshawn takes a moment to respond. "H-how's 'bout t-ten dollars?" You stretch and nod, "That's more than enough."The gnawing emptiness inside you yearns to be fed, and who are you to deny it?

>>2759080>>2759273You know, I've been thinking. 10 HP would be fine if were running a gritty, realistic combat system but you specifically wanted a gonzo, comic-esque quest, and under that sort of framework, I think it's unrealistic for a thug getting a lucky hit with a baseball bat to knock out over half a Villain's health points, so for the sake of keeping thematic consistency, I'm going to double your HP to represent the plot armor named comic book characters tend to have. And another thing, you think I've been too over-the-top writing the combat scenes? Memeballs aside, you are a Villain and will tend to default to lethal attacks, but is the quasi-realistic brutality tonally off-putting? Do you think I should ease up, or keep it as it is? Basically, where should I be on the Punisher vs Spider-Man scale? Let me know what you think of the qiest so far, so I can improve.
>>2759322Maybe have hp heal after each encounter?Or have more HP whatever. Siding with closer to spider-man but honestly I don't have a huge preference.Hopefully this picks up a little, if only because I wanted to do something similar. But honestly I probably will never start writing it.
>>2759322>>2759360same for me
>>2759360>>2759362Good to know, back to the quest!
>>2759080>>2759269>>2759273He closes in and swings his bat in the blink of an eye. You're completely exposed as it arcs full-force into your midsection, knocking the air from your lungs and the spit from your mouth. The thief's victory is short-lived and he rears back to strike again, a second swing never comes. Scalding steam drifts from your hand, and while no blood drains from the urban youth, his vomit tells it all. You step to the side, tripping him as he tumbles forward, and cracks his head on the floor. Three perfectly cylindrical holes have burned through his back, the result of your energy burst, no doubt, and as you stare, you realize that he's stone dead. For a moment your stomach drops to the floor, then you wince at the sudden pain from your stomach, shrug, and carry on. He violated the NAP, thus, you are absolved of any wrongdoing. You turn to see Deshawn is cowering in the corner with a kitchen knife, "ST-STAY DA FUCK OVER DERE HONKEY! I DON' WANT SHIT TO DO WIT' ANY SUPERS, TAKE WHATCHU WAN' OUTTA DA REGISTER N' GO! JUS-JUS' DON' KILL ME MAN, DON' KILL ME!"Hmm. You agreed upon exactly ten dollars, and while it would be more profitable to take the full contents of the register, this is your boss's property and as a loyal employee, you *did* voluntarily agree to respect his authority. Then again, Deshawn agreed to pay you, everything in the register is your boss's property, and by extension, McDonald's property, ergo, by taking the agreed upon amount from the register without his consent, you'd be violating the NAP.> What should you do?> Demand Deshawn give you $10 of fiat currency, out of his wallet, as mutually agreed upon by verbal contract.> Take $10 of fiat currency from the register, in the boss's absence, Deshawn is your senior, and thus, technically in charge of the night-shift.> Violate the NAP and steal the entirety of the register's contents. By preventing a violent theft, you've saved the company more money than they'd lose from your theft.> [1/2]
>>2759452An agonized moan draws your attention back to the situation at hand. Two of the four NAP-violaters are still alive, if grievously injured, and you're not sure if you're comfortable letting them go. But it could also argued that they're no threat, and can be released with a clear conscience.> What should you do?> Execute them both via aluminum baseball bat to the base of the skull. Wasting bullets would be an inefficient waste of funds, and violation of the NAP is a crime worthy of death.> Execute them both via 9mm shot to the temple. Wasting bullets may be an inefficient waste of funds and violation of the NAP may be a crime worthy of death, but you're not a monster.> Execute one via 9mm shot to the temple, then let the other live. He may have violated the NAP, but rumors will spread, preventing the establishment from being robbed again in the future.> Release them both. They may have violated the NAP, but they killed no-one, and it could be argued that with their disfiguring injuries, they've paid their debt to McDonald's.> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [16/20]> EP: [10/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Inventory: > McDonald's Uniform (Worn)> Spatula (Wielded)> $18 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3> [2/2]
>>2759452>*though he rears back to strike again>*only Deshawn agreed to pay you>*they've paid their debt to McDonald's in full
> Take $10 of fiat currency from the register> Release them both.Now how to dismantle the state and also be paid as a security service.
>>2759486After you've thought for a few moments, you deduce that it wouldn't be a violation of the NAP to take a reasonable reward for defusing a violent situation. Though the boss isn't present, as the senior employee, Deshawn is the next-best-thing, and if he says it's okay to take ten dollars from the register, who are you to tell him otherwise? You open the register, count out exactly ten ones, deposit them in your wallet, and sigh in capitalistic satisfaction.And as for the injured urban youths, their severe burns and loss of a hand are more than sufficient compensation for the damages they've caused. Of course, they've attempted a violent robbery, and thus, have forfeited the possession of any valuables on their person, and as sole enforcer of the NAP on-site, you're entitled to their belongings. Five minutes later, both survivors have sprinted out the door and you're counting out a crisp, only slightly wrinkled $74 units of fiat currency, along with a partially scuffed 9mm pistol and eighteen corresponding rounds. Nice.Wait, you almost forgot. You're still loaded with the company's energy! You go to the circuit breaker, press your finger on the center, and slowly circulate energy back into the system until there's nothing left to give. When you walk out of the kitchen and into the restaurant, Deshawn is nowhere to be seen and the glass door is hanging wide open. That's bizarre, his shift isn't finished yet and you took out the trash hours ago. You wonder where he went, maybe to double-check the trash? Eh, it's none of your business. You glance at the wall-clock and frown. It's 12:03, which means you still have five hours and fifty-seven minutes left to go on your shift. You're really not in the mood to fill in for Deshawn, but another employee playing hookie is no reason not to slack off and it's only fair you work the agreed upon hours. Hmm... Come to think of it, there haven't been more than a handful of customers tonight, and with your impeccable record, you're sure your boss would understand if you took the rest of the night off.> What should you do?> Work the rest of your shift, as agreed upon, Deshawn or no Deshawn.> Clean the floors and take the rest of the night off, you've earned it.> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [16/20]> EP: [10/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Inventory: > McDonald's Uniform (Worn)> Spatula (Wielded)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3
>>2759607> Clean the floors and take the rest of the night off, you've earned it.
>>2759613Oh come on. Six straight years of work, six days a week without so much as a single sick day? Most CEO's would kill for an employee with a work ethic like yours, nevermind one that prevented an illegitimate search and seizure of their financial assets! But, there's a massive mess and as a responsible employee, you can't just leave it there.Wait, you've got it! You'll clean the blood and ashes off the floor, fold the corpses and put them in the kitchen cupboard where customers can't see, then take the rest of the night off and come back first thing tomorrow night. Who knows, maybe they'll even let you make up for lost hours by working overtime! Fantasies aside, first things first.You get the mop, bucket, and a pair of disposable latex gloves out of the closet then get to work. Fifteen minutes later, the floor is clean, both bodies are hidden for the customer's convenience, and you are in the clear to head home and sleep in at least once in your life.The six mile bicycle ride home, you ride a bicycle because it's fuel-efficient and immune to electronic monitoring, seems easier than usual, and before you know it, you're locking it out front, entering the tenements, and locking the door to your three-room apartment.Walking through the front door, you smile and breathe in fresh air.

>>2759680>>2759850>>2759855>>2759889>>2759939Once you've taken the five minutes it takes to lock each dead-bolt you've installed on the door, you look the center of the room like a cat lady lusting after Fabio. There, along with nine high-end processors, sits your pride and joy, an immense custom-built PC with 4.3 Terabytes of data space, a top-of-the-line modem, and no less than fourteen examples of the best encrypting software the internet has to offer. It's beautiful and the sight of it might drive a lesser man to tears, but you've long since grown used to the sight.Not bothering to remove your uniform, you practically sprint over to the PC, collapse onto the swivel chair, and ever so gently apply the tip of your finger to the power button. Moments later, it activates, revealing a spastic wall of static. Ten minutes of entering passwords later, the static clears to reveal a series of icons. You mouse over the TempleOS, TrueCrypt, 0.8 Terabyte game library and come to rest on the Epic browser icon. It's not as anonymous as you'd like, but you haven't come across any less obvious honeypots, so it is what it is. You begin browsing, and minutes later, you verified that each and every one of the $116,000 fiat dollar's worth of crypto-coin you own, under several false identities, is wholly untouched, and that your PC's mining has gained $400 fiat dollar's worth tonight alone, handling this month's rent with $100 to spare.If you wished to, you could quit your job at McDonald's and live the middle-class lifestyle indefinitely but the thought of willfull unemployment disgusts you.

Little is known about him other than his white supremacist leanings, proclivity for razor-tipped steel knuckles, and his tendency to target minority-owned businesses.Mongrel is a bit more difficult to research, but eventually you manage to find a furry porn website called www.dogwatch.com, dedicated stalking canine supers and archiving information of them and their whereabouts. Once you've sifted through the depraved fan-art, you manage to find a list of his known powers and a segment on his methods.> Mongrel, [Identity Unknown]> Physical Enhancement:> Abnormal Physiology- 3> Bodily Tension- 2> Self-Alteration:> Growth- 2When you see an unshopped photo, you do a double-take. You'd assumed the animalistic fan-art was typical furry smut, but no, he really does look like a damned eight-foot tall werewolf. You don't believe it until you see a webm of a masked man in thrift store clothes straight-up transforming into an inhuman beast and violently dismembering a junkie trying to rob a gas station. He doesn't seem to have any supernatural powers beyond what an eight foot tall berserk wolfman would, but still, if he didn't limit himself to criminals, they'd classify him as a serial killer! Whew lad.Apparently, he eats criminals on the scene of the crime and leaves the viscera behind for the police. No investigators have managed to match his hybrid DNA with any known humans, and he's too small-scale for anyone to bother dropping a million to find him.> [1/2]
>>2760439Thanatos has his own unofficial fansite at, www.ashwalker.com that seems to be maintained by a handful of edge-lords. Normally you'd ignore a source like this, but their citations are air-right> Thanatos, [Identity Unknown]> Matter Control:> Disruption- 12Thanatos only has one superpower, but you have to admit, it's pretty terrifying. He can destabilize molecular bonds to render complex substances down to their base elements, which is in most cases, some form of dust, his use of the power is not limited to inorganic matter, and tje relative hardness of a substance has almost no effect on the speed it's dissolved. In effect, he can instantaneously turn a human being into ashes with the touch of his hand, armor be damned.Additionally, he can make holes in walls or streets to evade and ambush his pursuers, and he's able to extend the effect to an aura within five feet of himself, making it nigh impossible to kill him with gunfire and suicidal to engage in melee combat. On top of that, he's visibly muscular, has been recorded performing several martial arts with a degree of competence, and carries several illegal firearms and explosives. The closest thing he has to a costume is a 50's era hockey mask, head to toe motorcycle leather, and a tendency to spray paint his call-sign on walls. Unlike most superheroes and vigilantes, he pre-emptively attacks criminal gangs and supervillains, and dissolves the evidence after the fact.Wrong-Think has an article on www.superlist.com linked to Blitzkrieg's, but his is tiny in comparison, with almost no information on his abilities. He keeps a low-profile, you approve. There's not so much of a clear photo of him in costume, and there's some speculation that he doesn't wear one.> Wrong-Think, [Identity Unknown]> Mental Enhancements:> Hyper-Intelligence- 6-8?> ???Technopathy???> ???Telepathy???He's barely a blip on the radar, and the only reason he's even known is for internet vandalism, hacking a string of Jewish bank accounts and donating their funds to anti-immigration groups, and allegedly manufacturing a 600 pound bomb that was to be detonated in a crowded mosque on Ramadan before Paragon and three out-of-state supers foiled his plan. He's been at large for years, but they don't have enough information on him to put together a wanted poster.You have only half an hour before bedtime, enough time to check the local news feeds.> Roll 1d20+4, best of three> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [16/20]> EP: [0/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> McDonald's Uniform (Worn)> Spatula (Wielded)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3[2/2]

>>2760548You skim past the various news articles, utterrly indifferent, until you stumble upon Mirror-Man. The sheer scale of his blatantly anti-constitutional repeat NAP violations, it's indescribable. CEO muggings, corporate sabotage, and advocating for mandatory minimum wage while simultaneously denouncing the concept of currency... It's treasonous, it's unthinkable, and he, must, be-"PHYSICALLY REMOVED!!!" You shouted at the top of your lungs without intending too, and a few seconds later your next-do-neighbor curses. "Shut the fuck up man, I'm tryna' sleep!" Oops. "M-my apologies, I had no intent to break the NAP-" He interrupts with incense. "I don' fuckin' give a fuck man jus' go to sleep!" Your response is cordial, if a bit terse. "Y-you too." With a "Good night asshole." his outburst ceases and you realize you're half a minute past bedtime.Once you've finished adjusting the alarm clock to compensate, you strip down to your tightie-whities, fall on your cheap used mattress, and go to sleep. As always, you dream of free helicopter rides and wake up bright and beady-eyed, ready for another night at work! The bike ride to McDonald's goes by quickly and before you know it, you're locking your bike out front and stepping through the entrance. There aren't any customers yet, but that's nothing unusual, and Deshawn is behind the register as always.The second he sees you his eyes go wider than a supersized cup lid and he sprints into the kitchen shouting something unintelligible. Moments later, your short grey-haired goateed boss walks out with a pump shotgun and a concerned face. Like always, you stand at immediate attention, per protocol and announce, "Frycook Germacher, at your service sir!" The boss doesn't smile at your antics like he usually does, and you feel a sudden sense of dread at his next words. "Kristy, I've got some bad news, and I want you take it easy, a'right?"Oh no, it can't be! "You've decided on your nephew for the day job?!?" The boss's look of incredulous confusion is reassuring, but his next words make your blood run cold. "No, you're fired."Fired? Fired!?!

>>2760663>>2760691>>2760696>>2760701>>2760706In the depths of betrayal, time stops and as you descend into rage every light within a city block flickers, then you take a deep breath, hold in your tears, and pull back from the brink. You shove your finger in your boss's face and shout, "FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK!!! YOU!!! IF MCDONALD'S IS WILLING TO FIRE AN EMPLOYEE AS HARD-WORKING AS ME, THEN MCDONALD'S ISN'T WORTH WORKING FOR! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU!!!"You get into his face, grab the shotgun barrel, and mentally attract it to your hand so he can't jerk it away no matter how hard he tries. You're violating the NAP but you're so furious you don't even care. You shout so loudly spit flies onto your ex-boss's face and he can only cower before the wrath of your voluntaristic rage. "FUCK!!! YOU HEAR ME YOU GREASY OLD FUCK!?! I'M GOING TO TAKE MY FUCKING SUPERPOWERS, AND I'M GOING TO TAKE MY FUCKING ONE HUNDRED SIXTEEN THOUSAND FIAT DOLLARS IN CRYPTO-CURRENCY, AND I'M GOING TO START MY OWN FUCKING FAST-FOOD CHAIN, AND IT'S GOING TO BE THE BEST FUCKING FAST FOOD CHAIN THERE EVER WAS AND EVER WILL BE!!! IT'LL BLOW MCDONALD'S THE FUCK OUT, JUST YOU FUCKING SEE! FUCK YOU, I'M OUT!"You jab a finger into his cheek, spit on the floor, turn 360 degrees, and walk away, seething with capitalistic determination. You push open the manual door, and stop, you throw your uniform onto the pavement, and in full-view of at least three pedestrians, stomp it into the ground. Though tears stream down your face, your voice is the embodiment of cutting steel. "Don't bother to send a check, chump, I'm outta here." You slide onto your bike, and flip off the McDonald's as you ride shirtless into the night, looking totally badass.You're about halfway home when it hits you. You're a skilled hand with a spatula, can talk Keynesian economics for hours on end, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best of the best when it comes to avoiding government surveillance online, but you've never actually started a business.> What's the plan to get your vengeful fast-food chain out of your dreams and onto the streets?> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [17/20]> EP: [0/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory: > Shirtless (Worn)> Spatula (Wielded)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3
>>2760787Go online and research the topic
>>2760787Well we should go home and began using our cyro to buy guns. We're going to be a gun dealer or something like that
Hold on I have a idea that goes with our AnCap ideas.We could look online buy some cheap land in backfuck nowhere and set up our own nation. We could go to Africa to become a Warlord, or go to Somali since it's AnCap land
>>2760809Agreed fast food is kinda lackluster for a villian
>>2760814The world is our oyster so as long as we think of something we can do it.
>>2760809We do this, as a means to overthrow McD’s.
>>2760826McD's with it's international size, and amount of workers, and also the money it was. It could possibly be called as a private nation. With it's own laws and etc.A way to destroy them is military force or espionage
>>2760809>>2760821>>2760826M80, we barely have 100k and our superpowers aren't even close to max-strength. Let's start a grease trap burger stand, flip burgers and sell guns and drugs on the side to spite the ATF.>>2760814> he doesn't want hired thugs to break mirror-man's knees before we lower him into a giant vat of fry grease
>>2760839Well with 100k we can buy cheap land. But flipping burgers and selling guns and drugs will get us income but also exposes ourselves more
>>2760809That's a idea worth looking for
>>2760851And going full african warlord on a shoestring budget when we don't speak a word of pidgin won't?
>>2760893Nah, I'm throwing ideas out there, we could stay in America and form our own NAP in the city. Or form a base just outside the city, or look for a car to buy
>>2760900Yeah I see where you're coming from and think it's a good plan but we need to establish ourselves a bit before we go ahead with it, at least get a few million and some allies first
>>2760910Yeah, so we could short term, stay in our room. But out this night looking for rumors or clues. Rumors or clues of local gangs or supersAfter we get some street clothes at home
>>2760913I'm just thinking we need to go small before we go big. Ideas:> use about eighty thousand to start a burger joint> sell cheap drugs and guns, while we use the burger joint as a front to launder money> get two or three hundred grand and start networking with local thugs and building our AnCap Army™> turn burger joint into fast food chain, and build a monopoly the city's legal and illegal economy
>>2760929>AnCap Army™I'm a fan of the Compensated FunForce™ myself, but we can workshop it later.
>>2760929We could form our own PMC since they are making a killing in money. But for the burger joint, we're going to have to buy permits, wait until they are given, get a food truck since a building in the city is upwards to a million or more.We could use our computer skills to hack ourselves the permits and other government things
>>2760787So OP what you doing?
Questioncan our Energy Sponge absorb kinetic energy?
>>2760952Eating watermelon, about to refuel my truck, waiting on you to reach a consensus.>>2760970See >>2757071, your Energy Sponge can absorb heat, electricity, and kinetic energy, though it takes excellent timing to shield yourself from gunfire and at the current tier, isn't strong enough to completely stop high caliber rounds or suppressive fire.
>>2760979thank you for clarification, just not strong enough yet i guess.come back to wizard quest pls :3
>>2760979>waiting on you to reach a consensus.Can you regroup the votes and we pick from the list? It helps find out what was done
>>2760983As soon as I've refueled, have faith anon.
>>2760988praise the lord
>>2760986Sure.> Do some research on what it takes to legally start a restaurant> Purchase a few firearms using crypto and covertly sell them on the street> Attempt to start a burger shack from scratch, fuck the Feds> Attempt to network with local thugs and start selling drugs on the streets> Attempt to synthesize drugs and sell them on the streets> Buy a few acres of land somewhere in Africa
>>2761008>> Do some research on what it takes to legally start a restaurant>> Purchase a few firearms using crypto and covertly sell them on the street>> Attempt to network with local thugs and start selling drugs on the streetsFor the land, I just want to know the price for buying land around the world, but for now we can do these It's take time for the guns to come, and time to get the permits for restaurants.

Joining, Anarcho-Capitalism is what this city truly needs!
>>2761236Same; this Quest for More Money is going places!
>>2761079>>2761087If you're going to open a restaurant under your own name, you'll have to do it legally, and that means... purchasing a permit, abiding by regulations, and... paying your taxes. There isn't a single thing in this world you hate more than permits, regulations, and taxes, and so long as you've drawn breath, you've done everything in your power to avoid them, even to the point you'd ride a bike everywhere because you don't have a driver's license because you'd rather pay a dime to eat shit than spend a single penny to have the Feds acknowledge your sovereign right to the road, but there's no dodging this. Either you allow them to steal your hard-earned money for the privilege of exercising your rights, or you don't, and have everything you own taken by unjust force.This system is sick, and it must be burned away in purifying flame, so that a new, better one based upon freedom of enterprise and the Non Aggression Principle can rise from the ashes! But until then, you have to pay the fee. Sigh. Hey, you're so distracted you almost missed the turn home! Little over twenty minutes later, you're sitting in your swivel-chair researching the finer details of restaurant licensing. Hmm, you'll need an employer identification number, food service license, food handler's permit, business license... Ten minutes later you've come up with a tally and it's atrocious. Thanks to the filthy statists in the government, you're going to be out on your ass $600 fiat dollars. $600 fiat dollars to operate a restaurant, on top of the requisite costs necessary to start one!If you pay now, it'll take only two weeks for the licensing to come in, but fuck it, you're tired of bending over for the Feds. It's time to further the 2nd Amendment, protect the common citizen, and maybe make a few thousand fiat dollars on the side. Operating from your swivel-chair, you anonymously order little over $10,000 fiat dollars in gun parts and $16,000 in ammunition, which wouldn't cost so much if it wasn't so heavily regulated, but, you digress. Assuming there aren't any ATF-related issues, you'll probably double your money once it trickles in little by little over the next month, which is an obscene waiting time, but you suppose that's the price you have to pay for privacy. The worst part is, today your PC's barely managed to mine $400 in crypto-currency, not anywhere near close to breaking even! > [1/2]
>>2761343At this rate, you'll be in debt! You need money fast, and the best way to get rich quick is... No, not a loan shark... Drugs. More specifically, dealing drugs, and there's a number of illicit entrepreneurs that'd be ecstatic to have an employee with talents like yours. Hmm, but how can you find out who's selling drugs? Wait, duh. You'll just ask them! Five minutes of resetting electronic safeguards later, you're out the door and on the nighttime streets in search of drug dealers. It takes almost ten minutes for you to find an appropriately shifty inner city youth, and when you approach him, he goes on edge and reaches into his coat."Whatchu wan' honkey?" After you've checked over your shoulder to ensure no unconstitutional law enforcement is nearby, you whisper. "I'm looking for work, selling drugs on the streets. I'm discreet, and I'll work any hours, day or night for a fair cut." The young businessman's demeanor shifts and he gives a jovial grin. "Well dayum, you's talkin' to da right guy honkey! You gotsa problem workin' fo' da Maze?" You pause, "The Maze?" He nods. "Yuh-huh, I's talkin' 'bout da Labyrinth. Here's how shit works, you's come on down to da docks, next Saturday twelve PM sharp, n' he'll size you up." You can't help but ask, "Who?" The youth grins. "Da Maze. He thinks you's got da stones, you in, but he thinks yo' some pansy ass, you's gettin' thrown in da docks."He points in your face and you lean back. "You wanna cut? Saturday night, twelve PM sharp. Got dat?" You nod, "Next Saturday, twelve PM sharp." He retracts his finger, gives a predatory smile, and walks away with a laugh. "Aight honkey, be there or be square."D-did you just agree to a gang initiation?> More importantly, do you have any intention of actually being there two days from now?> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [17/20]> EP: [0/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> Shirtless (Worn)> Spatula (Wielded)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3> [2/2]

>>2762396>>2762400>>2762421You've been sitting on the swivel-chair, staring into your PC screen with a furrowed brow and gritted teeth. Regulation is anathema to everything you are, everything you stand for, and every fiber of your being. Your hatred for the federal government burns with the force of a thousand suns, but, it is what it is, and you must... comply. Their stifling socialist legislation be damned, you must comply. Your hand doesn't want to move but your will is steel and though it aches your head and pains your soul, you force it to. Two hours later, you're short $600 fiat dollars and the disgusted owner of a permit to open a restaurant."GAH!" It's all you can do not to flip over your computer, ruining years of work, but what's done is done. You're so furious the urge to murder each and every living thing in this building rises by the minute, but that would be a violation of the NAP, and you may be a statist in all but name, but damn it, you will not break the NAP. You're so angry the lights are flickering, you have to go vent before you short out your PC, but how? You want to destroy something, but there's nothing around here you could vandalize without exposing yourself or breaking the NAP, unless there's a dump nearby. A junkyard, that's it! If you show up, melt a few holes in a some trash mounds here and crush a few dysfunctional kitchen appliances there, no-one will notice, and seeing as you're only destroying the local government's property, the NAP remains intact!> [1/2]
>>2762694Before you go, you throw on a thrift store hoodie and hide your spatula in the kitchen cupboard, because the last thing you need is tetanus and a filthy spatula. It takes you a while to locate a dump within an hour's ride of a bicycle, but you manage to, and fifty minutes later, you've hidden your bike under a hill of garbage, climbed a chain link fence, and are standing in the middle of an abandoned public waste repository. You turn to a nearby street light, release your inner thirst, and cackle like a madman as an arc of electricity pierces into your body's core. You maintain the stream for little over five minutes, enough to fill two-thirds, and stop. With a loud bzzzt, the electric line ceases, and you focus on your inner self, grasping the lightning, bending it, breaking it, until it multiplies and there's more than you can take.You raise your palm, and grin ear-to-ear as a white-top beam stabs out, bisecting a stack of used-tires like it were only so much warm butter. You raise another palm, and out shoot a dozen blasts, peppering what's left with holes. Noticing a hole-filled bucket, you mentally fling it toward yourself and an instant before it impacts, crush it with a ghostly tentacle and fling its ruins fifty feet away. While the Feds might be able force you to comply with their asinine laws and their tyrannical legislation, your right to your powers, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!"Six hours later, you're exhausted and it's past your bedtime but you don't care. Deep inside, something primal urges to be freed, released, and unleashed, and who are you to deny it? You let it go, and in that moment, you feel like a god.> +1 Power Point!> Which of your superpowers do you want to enhance?> Collection- 2<3> Ectoplasm Control- 2<3> Energy Plasmoids- 3<4> None, you'll save it> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [20/20]> EP: [100/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> Hoodie (Worn)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3> [2/2]

The only logical choice for our store is for it to grow into the first Country size Megacorporation
Also, we need to think a way to get back our 600 dollarydoos back from the government (it's not theft because the government already stole from us, thus violating the NAP)
>>2762798didn't we steal the work spatula, no one gave us permission to take it.isn't that violating the NAP?
>>2762807When are we going to to buy some slaves?
>>2762807That spatula belongs to us now, by right of conquest
>>2762836the co worker did say take what ever we want in his panic, so i guess that includes the spatula
>>2762724>>2762727>>2762758>>2762779>>2762789No, not yet. The force inside you yearns to be set free, but it isn't ready, not yet. Somehow, you're as sure of that you are the federal reserve must be abolished. It's a strange feeling, but you're not one to reject inner conviction, if you were, you'd have went libertarian years ago. But nevermind that, it's almost an hour past your bedtime! An hour later, you've ridden home, adjusted your alarm, and gone to sleep.You awaken at 9 PM with an overwhelming urge to return to the dump. Since you don't have anything planned, you decide to indulge yourself and head back, subtly draining energy on the way there. You repeat last night's routine, hide your bike, climb over the chain link fence, and absorb a bit from the street light to top off what you gathered on the way here. The energy inside pulses and you're about to start your routine when you hear a scream from behind. When you spin to see no-one's there, you chalk it up to another hallucination before it repeats, and louder. This time, there's a muffled thwack and an angry shout. "YA SAID YA'D PAY ME BACK FUCKER, AND WHAT'D YA DO?" *thwack* "YA DIDN'T PAY ME BACK!" *thwack*"I'M A REASONABLE MAN, BUT EVERYONE-" *thwack* "HAS THEIR LIMITS, AND YOU'VE-" *thwack* "JUST ABOUT-" *thwack* "CROSSED THE FUCKING LINE!" *thwack* *thwack* *thwack* "YA GOT ANYTHING TO FUCKING SAY FOR YERSELF BEFORE I BREAK YA GODDAMN SPINE?" A second, quieter voice, clearly in unimaginable pain response. "I-I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to-" *thwack* "WORTHLESS-" *thwack* "FUCKING-" *thwack* "JUNKIES!" *thwack* *thwack* *thwack*In the midst of the commotion you've snuck around the trash pile to see a terrible sight. Two burly masked thugs are holding a weeping skinny man in his underpants by the arms as a fat man in a pinstripe suit violently beats him with a crowbar. He raises the crowbar to strike again when one of the thugs spots you. "Uh, boss." The fat man scowls. "WHAT, WHAT, WHAT!?! CAN'T YA SEE I'M BUSY?" The thug stares at you, "There's a guy in a hoodie over there.""WHAT!?!" He turns to face you and swings the crowbar in a threatening gesture. "LISTEN HERE PUNK!

>>2762993Offer to save the victim in exchange for being a worker in our future restaurant.If he accepts, Energy Burst these fools.If he rejects, Energy Burst them anyway for violating the NAP.
>>2763051that worker violated the NAP by not paying he's getting what he deserves
>>2762993I meant no intrusion sir, I only wanted to see what all the commotion was, carry about your business.
>>2763056We only have one side of the story. How about we ask for a clarification of the situation? Inform them about the possible NAP violation and assure them that we're professionals and will be able to correctly identify who is in the wrong.
>>2762993Wait just outside the dump while we're busy pondering whether violent coercion or failure to fulfill one's side of a purchase constitutes a greater violation of the NAP. Once it's over, sneak back into the dump, see if the poor sod is still alive. If both of us are lucky enough, offer him a lucrative job at our new joint with the added bonus of considerably increased personal security. With protection fees taken from out of his paycheck, of course, but we can smooth out the details later.
>>2763095perfectchange to this
>>2762993The issue is to discern a propper amount of autism, not much but not so little.Ask the thugs if hitting the junkie with a crowbar was an agreed term in the contract that specifies that the collector will inflict physical injuries upon the debtor as a punishment for a delayed payment and if said punishment replaces the agreed sum to pay since the grievous blows the crowbar is inflicting will cost him pretty penny at a private clinic

>>2763679>>2763706>>2763688I'm not mad just disappointed
>>2763650 #You pause and ask, "What's going on here? I need to verify there isn't a violation of the NAP in progress." The man with the crowbar is dumbfounded. "N-A-P? WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK ARE YA GOING ON ABOUT?" Ah, another apolitical moderate, ignorant of the wonders of Anarcho-Capitalism. "I'm referring to the Non-Aggression Principle, the idea that one has a sacred and inalienable right to the sanctity of one's self and one's property, that aggression, aggression being defined as the forcible infringement upon one's person or property, is inherently wrong, and that, by violating the Non-Aggression Principle, or NAP for short, an aggressor has forfeit their right to protection under the NAP, and may be retaliated against with any degree of force their victim deems necessary." His head tilts in visible confusion, before clarity sets in."Listen here, punk. Two weeks ago, I loaned this punk-ass eight-hundred dollars, and he said he'd pay me double my money once he'd hustled some dope. That's all well and good, see, but yesterday I come to find out, bastard spent every goddamn cent of it on meth, heroin, and pain pills, got fucked up for a week, and planned on skipping town so he wouldn't have to pay. Fucker owes me one thousand six hundred, and I ain't ever gonna get it 'cause he's a worthless fucking junkie. So I get pissed and I'm gonna kill him, then I think on it and I figure, I ain't have to kill him. Instead, I'll beat him within an inch of his goddamn junkie life, then let him loose so word gets around and no-one else tries to fuck me over. Look, I don't know jack-shit about any fucking NAP, but I'd say I'm in the fucking right. Got a problem with that? Fuck off or ya'll be in the gutter right 'side him."You feel he's telling the truth.> What should you do?> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [20/20]> EP: [100/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> Hoodie (Worn)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Power Points: 1> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3
>>2764062are you threatening me master jedi?
>>2764062There is no violation of the NAP here that i can see. There was a transaction that was infringed upon by the opposite party and now the NAP is being enforced by the party whom was to be repaid, by beating the infringing party to within an inch of their life. The party who was to be repaid is considering this rightful payment to the aforementioned transaction. In fact, the man who is being beaten to an inch of his life should be HAPPY that the other party was so forgiving to take an alternate payment method than the agreed upon $1,600. They should thank the man beating them.Hope I got the mindset right.
>>2764145Crap that first sentence is dumb i forgot to reread the whole damn thing. Should say something to the effect that there was a NAP violation but it has been properly handled and you have no problems with it. After this you agree to walk away to a different part of the junkyard and continue with your business.
>>2764145>>2764149This, apologize to the man for interfering in his business you only wanted to see what all the commotion was and to have a nice evening
>>2764062Offer to buy the man from him for half the price, surely a McSlave™ will come in handy in the future!
>>2764176He has already proven he cant follow the NAP. Why would we see any value in him. If you are thinking about paying him in drugs we don't have the drugs yet. Finding a junkie will be easy. No reason to pick this one up and pay off his debts in the process.
>>2764176>>2764183plus he's half dead already with probably multiple broken bones it'll take him at least 18 months to recover, he'll also be crippled for life in some way aswell and we only have $92 in cash
you know what can't violate contracts and the NAP, robots. Wrong-Think has hyper-intelligence, telepathy and technopathy he could prove to be valuable ally to our megacorporation.
>>2764207He's violated the NAP before, though. Even if we discount that, his ideology makes him target not only potential customers but the ones with the biggest pockets. It won't be impossible but I think it will certainly be difficult to rein him in.
I'm all for leaving the NAP-breaking junkie to his fate, but let's not get too hasty at leaving the scene. After all, these guys clearly have ties to the drug trade, and it looks like they're just about to be one dealer short.If we can strike a deal with Kingpin here, we might just get a headstart on our Drug n' Burger business venture.
>>276422Don't think they've got connections to the drug trade necessarily, they're loan sharks. It would still be valuable to start networking with the businessmen of the city though, I agree.
>>2764218in exchange for his service we could pardon his NAP violation, it's not his fault he broke something he didn't know existed.he also seems to hate Jews and Muslims from his previous actions, we could target the Jewish and Muslim states first for our Ancap revolution and that would definitely make him like us
>>2764246Nah, getting bogged down by some primitive ethnocentric ideology only gets in the way of a truly free market. And the only thing worse than getting bogged down by inherently statist ideologies is having a personification of that ideology breathing down our necks.
>>2764253race and religion means nothing to us but it does to others, we can use that to our advantage.the only thing that means anything to us is the NAP and Ancap
>>2764145>>2764149>>2764167So be it. Would you like to say anything else before you leave the junkie to the loan shark?
>>2764352Inquire as to how we might locate his offices, mention our entrepreneurial spirit and how we might come to do business together. Apologize for taking his time and intruding on personal matters. Make full use of all those years in customer service.
>>2764352nah, moonlights burning we gotta go train

>>2764444>>2764367With the full-story, your perspective on the situation has changed completely. "No, not in the slightest. By reneging on the agreed upon payment, he's violated the terms of your mutual agreement, and therefore, the NAP. He's only getting what's coming to him, and it's no skin off my back. I'm sorry to have intruded on your affairs sir, enjoy the rest of the evening." You turn to leave, when his voice stops you."Hey, ya seem like the sort of business-minded man I want to work with. Ever want some easy money, hit up Marcus at 2975 Pine Drive, tell 'em Mr. Timms sent ya, capiche?" You nod, "Sure will. Say, if you don't mind my asking, how do you launder your funds?" He twirls the crowbar and shrugs. "I know a guy. Why ya ask?" You give a sly smile and say, "Look into crypto-currency." At that, you walk deeper into the dumps until the sounds of *thwacks,* shouted curses, and cries for mercy that go unanswered fade away.

>>2764677The energy surrounds you, you inhale, and it fills you. Garbage surrounds you, you exhale, and it is no more. A mere thought, even the heaviest of trash levitates, flies to you, and with a wave of your hand, crumbles. You vent your frustrations in pulsating rage, and bury your flaws in a tomb of molten steel. You may an unemployed fry cook, but in this moment, you are invincible.A few hours pass before the nausea from non-stop channeling starts to set in, and you feel that while you've made tremendous progress, you need more practice before you'll see results. On the bike ride home, you start thinking. You can train your powers day in, day out, but if you don't train your body to its limits, you'll never make a good impression on potential employers. Physical fitness is a sign of discipline, and if you can't demonstrate that, you can't expect anyone to pay top rates. There's not much room in your apartment, so you'll have to find a gymnasium, buy a membership, and apply for /fit/izenship.Once you're in your swivel-chair, it doesn't take a minute to find a nearby Planet Fitness, and it doesn't take thirty minutes to bike there. The gym itself isn't much, and it's equipment isn't anything too special, but it's enough and that's what counts. You happily hand the manager $40 fiat dollars to cover the start-up price, complementary costs, and monthly fees, then get to work. Given your strenuous way of getting from Point A to Point B, you're better off than the average American but that's not saying much, and you have years to go before you peak.

>>2767202Can you give a quick explanation of our powers, like how they work
>>2767207Running late is a risk you can take, but going in blind could be suicide. You collapse in the swivel-chair, your fingers are a blur on the keyboard, and your eyes bulge as you skim a dozen articles. You haven't had enough time to fully research the Villain, but you've had enough to find the following.> Labyrinth, [Identity Unknown]> Energy Control:> ???Darkforce Generation???> ???Shadow Manipulation???> Sonic Control- 2> Matter Creation:> ?Maze Formation?- 8-10?> Mental Enhancement:> ???Hallucinations???> ???Empathy Sense???> Physical Enhancement:> ??Altered Physiology??- 2> ??Elasticity??- 4?You get the impression that even with a week to wade through the digital sewer of Villain fansites and forums you couldn't find any more. No-one seems to have the slightest idea what Labyrinth's powers are, or how they work, or even what they can do. The only aspect the experts can agree on is his maze theme, and even then, every eye-witness has a different story, any direct survivors of Labyrinth are assassinated within weeks of their encounter, and the only footage confirmed to be him is so grainy and pitch-black you can't determine his color scheme, let alone his ethnicity. The only rock-solid fact you can find is that the city's placed a $200,000 fiat dollar bounty on his head, and no would-be takers have survived to tell the tale.His gang, the Midnight Marauders, are as ferocious as Labyrinth is mysterious, they've been connected to hundreds of murders, thousands of mutilations, and are said to keep trophies of their victims. They're relatively new to the scene, but their cutthroat tactics, forced assimilation of lesser gangs, and fearsome reputation have allowed to complete with the King Hand Five's cartel, and experts speculate they'll overtake it regionally, in a few year's time. Their illicit funds acquisition isn't anything unusually sophisticated for a street gang, but after a viscious gang war, they've managed to seize a soft stranglehold on the heroin trade, though the Five Hand King's cartel's operations continue to surpass them elsewhere. 'Tried and tested' members of the Midnight Marauders can be identified by an intricate mazelike tattoo inked onto their left chest.Good to know, and it only took fifteen minutes to find.> Are you sure you want to go through with this?> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [20/20]> EP: [100/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> Hoodie (Worn)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $92 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Power Points: 1> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3

>>2767546> Can we make things that are more complex than a tentacle and can we make armor with ectoplasmYou've had your powers for only a week, you've only practiced twice, and you've only fought once. Most things are possible with sufficient training and imagination, the only obstacle is that you have to train first. The primary difference between your Ectoplasm and Energy based powers is that, while Ectoplasm is fueled by nothing more than innate will, you have to mentally dominate the spiritual you're bringing into the material, whereas your Energy powers are fueled by energy you must absorb prior to using, but there's little to no risk of fizzling out or backfired unless you're overcharged.>>2767514>>2767516>>2767521>>2767546>>2767550>>2767582> Roll 1d20, best of three

I am kinda lost. Why are we facing maze?/going to where he is/fighting him?
>>2767622We're not facing him. The reason why we were considering it before is because on our rage-filled stroll after getting fired, we asked a drug dealer if we could get a job from his employer.
>>2767514>>2767603What you've read so far is giving you bad vibes, like bad as a trap being sprung after a twenty minute fap on pornhub bad, bad. Fuck his maze, you're no rat. Labyrinth could pay his minions in gold bullion and chain-link codes for all you care, business is all about calculated risk, and this isn't worth it. Especially when you've already got an in with Mr. Timms, at 2975 Pine Drive. While you're at the PC, you do a bit of digging and can't find an arrest warrants on any Timms in your city, or anything but a rundown suburban house at the address. That's a good sign, if there's no police attention odds are there's no supers involved and it should be a piece of cake.Ten minutes after you've checked on the munitions shipments, none are in yet, and crypto trends, nothing worth a wojack, you've shut off the PC, hopped on the bike, and begun to ride. The farther from the docks you go, the thinner the urban sprawl gets and it starts getting hard to tell where the city ends and the suburbs begin. It takes you three hours, during which you mercifully aren't assaulted, to exit the city proper and find where you're looking for. You aren't sure what you expected from a loan shark's contact, the house's lawn is unkempt, its windows are shuttered, and a thin crust of mold has begun to set in on the foundation. Compared to the optimally-efficient cleanliness of your apartment, this house is no better than the slums, but it's not your property and whoever owns it can neglect it and sell it to a gullible fool as they are fit.You check your watch, it's almost 3:00 AM. Hmm, should you go back, or... No, you'll knock the door. While you recognize most don't share your nocturnal tendencies, you figure anyone living like this wouldn't have much of a sleep schedule, and you didn't ride out here for nothing. You approach the house, paranoid shoulder-checking at least three times, and give a hard knock. Almost a minute of silence passes before you knock again, and the unmistakable sound of a shotgun being pumped stops your heart. A dry, irritable voice can be heard. "I don't know who the fuck you are and I don't care what the fuck you're sellin'. Boy, you've got five seconds to get off my lawn a'fore I mulch your pasty-ass." > [1/2]
>>2767980Driven by panic more than thought, you say the first thing that comes to mind. "Mr. Timms sent me, I'm looking for easy money and I'd like to talk to Marcus." A ten second eternity stretches by before the rickety door flies open and the voice replies, "You're lookin' at him." Marcus is a skinny man in overalls with no shirt and a shotgun. There are sores running up and down his arms, the few teeth that aren't missing are black, and he's holding a rusty shotgun with a trembling grip. The smell of frying drain cleaner and cigarette smoke wafts from the inside of the house, and it's all you can do to keep a friendly smile. Mr. Timms didn't tell you Marcus was a meth-head.He glares at your cheap hoodie, thrift store pants, and worn sneakers, then spits a wad of chaw on the floor and waves the shotgun barrel in a broad gesture. "With clothes like those, I'd figure you's a nigger. Fuckin' city-slickers I swear... Eh, deal's a deal and I owe that fat fuck a favor. Te'me whatcha need n' I can fix you up.

Baggies' thirty bucks a pop, weed's twenty a gram. Take it or leave it, I don't fuckin' care. Shit, kinda smells, kinda smells kinda like-" You interrupt."You said you could find me some work."

>>2768793and an adidas tracksuit, da?
>>2768797We could also lie about our identity and pretend to be a commie when doing the lab bust. So they go looking for that commie super. Could be a good idea if the boss of the gang were hitting is a super.
>>2768793>>2768790>>2768797We need something that represents our ancap views as a super in the long term, an iconic outfit. See if it was communism or facism it'd be a lot easier but ancap is a bit harder without just opting for a business suit like so many people do. Maybe a black suit with armored bits and yellow gloves and full mask with some sun glasses? Try to go for a more cartoony look, think riddler but the suit not the tight suit.

>>2769879Pot-peddling is too small-time to bother with, but gun-running could turn a serious profit. "They'll be gone by the end of the week. Do you know where I can find a Dollar General?" Marcus's smile is gruesome, but in your years on the chans, you've see far worse and you beam back. "Yeah, jus' le'me think a second. A'right, so you head down to..." Forty minutes later, you've dropped $31 fiat dollars in exchange for a yellow balaclava, yellow work-gloves, and black sunglasses. The yellow should strike an entrepreneurial contrast on your black hoodie, making your economic leanings abundantly clear to anyone well-versed in fringe politics. You bought the sunglasses primarily for the aesthetic, but they'll help conceal your eye color and keep your own energy blasts from blinding you. Checking yourself out in the store's bathroom mirror, you'd say your outfit is much more badass than any double-digit price would warrant, and while an outside observer might find it a bit cringy, short of sophisticated equipment or extrasensory perception, there's no way they could conclusively determine your identity.Your low-budget costume is complete, and the only thing left to worry about is the lab. If Marcus is to be trusted, there should be four unlicensed pharmacists, one mangy rottweiler, and at least enough shotguns to arm each. Contraband automatics are a possibility, but you don't need to worry about any anti-material rifles, tripod mounted machineguns, or any fortifications beyond a chain-link fence and boarded windows which is a relief. Setting the lab on fire would be trivial with your powers, but then there'd be no loot, and while you've got a good shot at attacking it head-on, it only takes one good shot getting past your energy field to end you.

Each of the windows is boarded shut and unless you packed a crowbar or destroyed them, couldn't be used to enter or exit the building. The rottweiler is in the front yard, on a twenty chain attached to the brick foundation of the house.You know all of this via Marcus, who rambled on it extensively.
Perhaps we could start a fire at range with a blast, or maybe tip over some meth making equipment to make one. Then when they're drawn out we blast em. Whaddya reckon lads?
>>2770224We've established that a fire means no loot and therefore no real gain here
>>2770210Wait for them to fall asleep, hop the back fence, kill them in their sleep
>>2770224I like the idea of drawing them out but it's after 3 AM by this point, so maybe >>2770235 has the right idea; if they're all asleep, we can try to stealth this up first. Let's sneak into the backyard and try to open the back door.
I still vote to blow this bitch up from a distance ... the loot isn't the real gain the reputation we would gain is worth it ... this is a job interview essentially let's send a message
>>2770229We're not going to let it get properly alight, just enough to make them panic is the idea
>>2770281It's a meth lab, and a crappy one at that. If we cough too hard it'll blow up
>>2770281If we really want to draw them out, we could just use Collection on one of the boards on one of the backyard windows and making some noise. Make them think someone's trying to break in. Then hide and blast those motherfuckers the moment they open the door.
>>2770302we could also use our Collection on their eye's to rip them out, if they can't see they won't be able to shoot us.
We could coat the whole house in a raging inferno of ghost fire since it burns the soul and not the physical realm, leaving anything that doesn't have a soul untouched
>>2770618Def this one ... and I think op died on the shitter
>>2770618Oh shit, I didn't even remember that. Yeah, definitely sounds like a good idea but I'm not sure it'll stick to the house - or if it will, I don't think it'll spread enough to the inside of the house.
>>2770636send a ghost fire covered dog through the window and that'll get em
>>2770677or crack open its head rorshach style
>>2770677Windows are boarded up unfortunately. By the time we open them up, we'll have probably made enough noise that they'd be alerted.
There's no consensus on the plan of attack, so I'll provide a few options.> Go in, guns blazing, energy blasting, consequences be damned> Attempt to convince them you're a typical customer, then going all in once they're relaxed and distracted> Attempt to sneak into the meth lab, using stealthy tactics to assassinate the gangsters without damaging the equipment> Attempt to use Energy Sponge to mortar the meth lab from a distance, incinerating it and earning your reward at no risk to yourself> Attempt to use Collection to rattle the window boards, then blast the gangsters when they check on it.> Attempt to use Ectoplasm Control to fill the meth lab with ghost fire>>2770632Not quite.>>2770618At Tier 3 Ectoplasm Control, i.e, roughly as dangerous as a trained man with an assault rifle, setting a building alight with ghostly blaze would be highly difficult, but not neccessarily impossible.
>>2770689>Sneak inAt our current power levels we should emphasize caution and stealth

>>2770689> Attempt to sneak into the meth lab, using stealthy tactics to assassinate the gangsters without damaging the equipmentIf ghost fire is that difficult, I'll stick with the safer plan.

>>2770904wait no, they drove the old guy out of buisness selling their product in an 'agressive' manner...yeah, that justifies things
>>2770908We're a third party getting paid to deal with a problem after the meth heads broke the NAP and started driving the old guy out of business.So we're getting paid to provide a service, which also justifies things.
>>2770910>>2770908but they didn't break the NAP to do it, their capitalistic enterprise was just more successful than. The worst thing he accuses them of is stealing costumers by setting up to close to him, but if being the nearest dealer was the only reason he had costumers in the first place, he is a bad businessman and deserves to be put out of business if he is unable to adapt and compete in the free market.
>>2770914But he is going to use us as third party contractor to adapt to the free market. He wants us to get rid of his competition and us as a private party can choose whether or not the money is worth it. If their business is deem worthy by the 'invisible hand of free market' then our paid attack of it will fail, if our attack is successful it's by the will of the invisible hand.

Questionwith energy sponge is it possible that we could be able to absorb the energy that light produces, kinda like solar panels and plants but to such a large degree where no excess light is left to reflect of us and into the eyes of others making us invisible?Would this even be possible, i'm no physicist so all of this is just an educated guess
>>2771628Good idea, since vision is a reflecting of light off objects that our eyes pick up.Since light is a form of energy we could in theory work. But I'm guessing we're going to look more like a manshape blackness. Since we're going to be blocking the light behind us. So think of a room with white walls, we see them as white since the light reflected back to our eyeballs. Now if we lean against the wall, you like a man leading against the white wall. We turn on our energy power and since we suck the light on us, we're become a shadow of pure darkness against the white wall, since the light at the back of us don't make it to the guy seeing us. Making us not invisible but appear like black man. But the good side is, noone can see who we are, only tell we're human shaped made of pure blackness.tldr: We'll look like a black hole type of manshape in someone vision. Works well if we're sneaking somewhere dark. But then again, I'm no physicist and just going off what I know.
If we wanted to be invisible it works better if we can let light just go through us, and our body doesn't block it. Which would look like the sheath suit in metal gear solid.
>>2771712But that isn't how our power works
>>2771746I know that anon, just saying what we needed to do that.
>>2771267>>2771290Attacking head-on is too risky, mortaring forfeits the profits, and that leaves you no choice but to break-in through the back door. Fortunately, there's no-one keeping watch on the backyard and the watch dog's chained in the front yard, which makes hopping the fence a simple task. Standing in knee high grass, you crouch and stealthily approach the meth-lab. As your bright yellow glove grips the door knob, you find yourself second-guessing your color scheme but you're relieved to find the door isn't locked.Suddenly, you realize why but it's too late, the trap's already sprung! In a panic, you activate your energy sponge and dive to the side, landing face-down. An instant later, a deafening *BOOOOM* rings out. You scramble to your feet in time to see a dozen pellets on the porch before a wide-eyed urban youth gripping an assault rifle sprints out, shouting "COME ON OUT MO'FUCKA I KNOW YOU'S DERE!"If there's one, there's bound to be more. By some miracle, he hasn't noticed the neon yellow balaclava inches from his face, and you realize you have only seconds to act.> How do you attack?> Energy Mortar [1d20 HP damage, AOE, -20 EP]> Energy Blaze [1d10 HP damage, Burns, -20 EP]> Energy Beam [1d8 HP damage, -10 EP]> Energy Burst [2d6 HP damage, -8 EP]> Energy Blast [1d4 HP damage, -4 EP]> Ghost Tentacles [1d8 HP damage]> Ghost Fire [1d6 HP damage]> Collection [1d20 to grab a weapon]> 9mm Pistol [1d4 HP damage, -1 9mm round]> Kristoph Germacher> HP: [20/20]> EP: [100/100]> Traits:> Hardcore AnCap> Autist> Inventory:> Black Sunglasses (Worn)> Yellow Balaclava (Worn)> Black Hoodie (Worn)> Yellow Work-Gloves (Worn)> 9mm Pistol, (15/15)> 3 9mm rounds> $61 fiat dollars> Superpowers:> Power Points: 1> Matter Control:> Collection- 2> Energy Control:> Ectoplasm Control- 2> Energy Sponge- 7> Energy Plasmoids- 3
>>2771965>Ghost Tentacles [1d8 HP damage]Last time the tentacle we summoned was able to stay and act on its own so this'll give us an extra hand.
>>2771965> Ghost Tentacles [1d8 HP damage]Since we have the element of surprise for the notice, we can get a quick hit in. >>2771973Where do you think we should aim the tentacle? I'm thinking his face since we're hidden at the moment
>>2771965> Energy Burst [2d6 HP damage, -8 EP]
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>2771979wrap on around his gun and smack him with the other one
>>2771987oh wait he didnt say roll phew
>>2771965Use Ghost fire on him, peoples first instinct when they catch is ablaze is to panic and try and put the fire out. little does he know he can't put it out
>>2771965>Ghost TentaclesWe can do ghost fire next turn after we bitch slap him
>>2771979We should definitely aim for the face. Pretty sure we insta-killed a robber by grabbing his head and smashing it through the floor before.
>>2771708>we're human shaped made of pure blackness.that's gotta be fucking terrifying to witness, if we had a voice changer people would think we're some kind of inter dimensional being, maybe this should be our costume.with our energy sponge we could also absorb all the ambient heat around us giving us a bone chilling aura.
>>2772051This anon is genius I totally agree perfect villian getup
>>2772051Light is given off in waves, so maybe if we learn how to control our powers enough. It would be possible to target different light waves, so we can try to absorb every color save for yellow, to match our color scheme of ancap.
just realized we can grab people and drain them of their body heat causing total organ failure and almost instant death
>>2772071holy shit, we should try thatwe can also obsorb the electric signals transmitted by the brain to paralyze someone as long as we are touching them. or maybe if we do it for long enough theyll go braindead and nobody will no why cause there are no symptoms
>>2772084I'm sure that eventually we could potentially stop time by sucking all the energy out of an area
>>2772097we can absorb peoples potential energy, freezing them in place
>>2772084>nobody will no whyHMMM detective, it seems there are bullet holes and several gunpowder traces from the discharging of a pistol and a shotgun, and this lad here didn't die from any firearm. HMMMM I wonder what supernatural causes made this death it's not like superheroes exist or something.
We basically have the same power as Sebastian Shaw from X-men, so technically we are immortal and don't need to eat or sleep cause we get our energy from other means.
absorb gravitational energy, giving us moon jumpsABSORB SOLAR ENERGY
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>2771965Grab him and energy sponge all electro impulses from his body instantly
using surface energy to walk onwater>>2772132yes,lets do it
We need a villain name, if this >>2772051 is our costume we should call our self "Death" since we basically have god like powers. like we can absorb the rotational energy of earth or all the heat from it's core practically ending the world.we really lucked out on our powers with energy and matter control, it basically gives us control of anything that exists
>>2772190The S U C C cause we can suck up all types of energy
>>2772222S U C C H O L E(actually, blackhole is pretty neat. If a little edgy)
Hey, OP do you mind sharing your superhero generator with us? it seems neat
>>2772236even better, to go with our Ancap theme."CEO" keeps our powers a mystery and represents our true nature
>>2772246Hell, maybe we can call ourselves Crypto or Y2K since we can possibly make computers bug the fuck out. That's potential for making planes fall from the sky.
>>2772265or Omni to represent the variety of ways our powers can be used while still being vague enough not to give away our abilities
>>2772265Why not "Corps" sounds like Corpse, which fits with our ectoplasm and our beliefs
>>2772297>"Corps" sounds like CorpseWhere I come from Corps is pronounced Core.
>>2772302yeah same here
we can absorb elastic nrgy and b infinitely powered by rubberbands
>>2772302>>2772334>>2772361I think anon meant as an abbreviation of corp(oration)s. So that way it would be pronounced like corpse.
>>2771987> dat 1Hmm......>>2772241Of course, after this post I'll dump it.>>2771973>>2771979>>2772027>>2772056> Roll 1d20, Bo1
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>2772380
>>2772385Noice. Note, when you catch someone by surprise, you receive a damage bonus.> Roll 1d8+2, Bo1
>>2772368Thank you fellow anon, that is what I meant
Rolled 7 + 2 (1d8 + 2)>>2772394

>>2772241> http://www.classicmarvelforever.com/cms/ultimate-powers-list.html> Using the above link, roll 1d4 to determine the number of categories your powers fall under, then roll the resulting number of 1d100's to determine which categories your powers fall under.> Next, roll 1d6+2 or 2d6-2 to determine your number of powers, then roll the resulting number of 1d100's in any of the previously rolled categories at your discretion, to determine the specifics of your powerset.> Superpowers work on a tier system ranging from tier 1 to tier 20. A tier 1 power confers a slight edge over an ordinary citizen, a tier 5 power is enough to confront a squad of trained professionals on equal footing, a tier 10 power could destroy a small town with little difficulty, a tier 15 power could destroy a small country with little difficulty, and a tier 20 power could pose a threat to human civilization if the user were so inclined.> The vast majority of superpowers are between tiers 1 and 5, with a few uncommon outliers ranging from 6 to 10. Powers at tiers 11 through 15 are extremely rare and widely feared. Powers between tier 16 and 20 fleetingly extraordinary, one in a million, if that, and spoken of only in hushed whispers.> To determine which tier your superpowers fall under you receive a stipend of power points. Power points can be spent to upgrade a superpower's tier at the cost of 1 per tier between tiers 1-5, 2 per tier between tiers 6-10, 3 per tier between tiers 11-15, and 4 per tiers between tiers 16-20.> [1/2]
