>What's this?A shitty fan-fiction quest where you play as Hermann Schmidt in the Worm universe. I won't babble much, but your power basically allows you to make anything you want, but with the condition that it's super shitty in the beginning and you have to improve it. Issue #1, Owner Of A Lonely Heart http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3203426/(Do Ctrl F and type in Akire if you want to find where I start) Issue #2, A Day In A Life http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3222606/ Issue #3, Blooming Villain http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3266789/ >Last Time, On R.E.I.C.H & FriendsAfter a LOT of mistakes, you ended up fighting several heroes and lost. Faced with numerous charges, you agree to the PRT's deal and become a prohibitive hero. Without further ado, OPEN THE GAME!
>>330969228th April, 201117:23 Moving around, you can still feel your body aching in pain. Looks like Assault was rougher than you expected, although that can't really be blamed on him. Leaning on the oppressive wall, you patiently wait for the door to open. After a few minutes, Miss Militia finally walks inside. Donning her usual military attire, she wears an American themed bandana on her neck. "Mr. Schmidt, I trust you're ready to leave?" Nodding, you see your lawyer quietly exit the room. Before fully exiting, he throws you a wave, before vanishing. "Good, let's get going." Following, she leads you outside the room. To your surprise, there's not much more than a simple hallway outside. Taking a few turns, you see a few police officers giving you weird looks before finally arriving at the building's entrance. Leaving, you see the structure itself was some kind of police headquarters, fairly huge and tall one at that. Leading you towards a nearby parked car, she motions for you to get in. Agreeing, you awkwardly enter inside the woman's car. Turning the ignition, she begins driving at a steady pace. Relaxing, you stare vacantly at the surrounding streets. Cycling through your memories, you wonder how this entire situation started. What was the defining point, the singularity, that led to everything? Was it something that happened during these past few weeks, or was it something buried in the past? "Stop it, Hermann! Fighting those damn chink gangs around Winslow is a waste of your time! Listen to your damn grandpa for once!""It displeases me to inform you that you've been expelled from Cornwall University. We gave you plenty of warnings, advice, and help yet you never took it in.""Hermann, we have... news. Your grandfather finally-" In the end, you honestly have no idea. Shaking your head, you try to clear yourself from those melodramatic thoughts. "So... I guess I'm a hero, starting now..." "Correct, I'd recommend you start thinking about a name. The last thing you want is for the PR guys to choose it for you, trust me." Flashing her a polite smile, you begin thinking about aliases. You decided on Eitri for your villain name, although you never really got a chance to use it. "Thanks for the tip, so uh... there's nothing broken inside me, right? I can still feel pain when I move." "The doctors reported that everything was more or less fine. If you want, we can take a quick detour to the local hospital, Panacea should probably be there..." >Check out the hospital>Go straight towards the ENE headquarters, you can handle a little pain
>>3309698>go straight to the headquartersa little pain doesn't stop us
Calling the vote in 10 minutes
>>3309698>Check out the hospitalWho gives a fuck what the PRT thinks. They’re a bunch of assholes who came after us and fucked us over. Forced us into slavery. We look out for ourselves.
>Check out the hospitalWins it, will begin writing once I've finished eating breakfast
>>3309698>>Check out the hospital
They can have our tech But we're not a Fucking show PonyWe refuse to do PR stunts and eventsOur German Pride Must NEVER be given up
>>3309790And Hopefully Take some of the Wards who are dissatisfied with the PRT or those with more Violent Tendency's?
>>3309804>Maybe make a pheromone serum that makes others trust us more, especially females.OY, none of that please.
>Maybe make a pheromone serum that makes others trust us more, especially females.There is literally no way that this course of action ends well, as soon as it's detected we're fucked six ways from sunday.Better to actually convince people than to engage in degenerate acts for personal gain.
>>3309698Let's go with Eitri. It would start collecting dust otherwise.>Check out the hospital
Besides, there's no need to mind-rape people into compliance, how many capes want the world to be a better place? How many would follow someone that improves energy generation techniques of third world nations, who could say no to the chance to alleviate global suffering, isn't it the job of every hero to reduce the suffering of those who do not deserve it?If a certain someone were to foster national independence on a global scale with self sufficiency increases in destabilized nations would it not be heroic? Who could say no to the man making cheap filters, cheap solar panels and lights, cheap medical tools cheap firearms .We already want ethnostates, why not give those who embrace nationalism as a nation building technique the tech to make the nations they dream of?It's an altruistic act that doesn't seem to break any laws, and if we hide it under a veil of legitimacy then nobody will know that we push for a united front, a nation for it's people, and a people for their nation.
>>3309870Nice speech but you're forgetting Tinkertech can't be maintained and repaired by normies, only Tinkers.
>>3309790Even if they have our blueprints I don't think another person let alone another tinker could replicate what we're capable of making, at least not the exact copy. So there's that.Think about making bio serums. We need test subjects to inject. We'll need mice, then we move on to injecting chinks.>>3309875and there's the problem of making all of that for cheap.
>>3309870Fuck all that noise. Our guy is all about the preservation of the Aryan race, Nordic mysticism, and getting payback against the PRT scumbags who stalked, harassed, and assaulted him. For the crime of defending himself against gangsters and a literal suicide bomber.
>>3309888maybe we should see how things will play our first and try plotting later?
>>3309870>>3309875I did figure out one way for you guys could make and mass produce Tinkertech that doesn't need daily maintenance.I'm not gonna tell you cause i want you anons to figure it out.
>>3309905>Assuming we haven't though how we can do that alreadyyeah have fun holding onto your secrets. clearly the answer involves making a labor camp full of ABB goons.
"Sure, better safe than sorry""Fair enough, let's take a turn here."Turning a sudden left, she drives the car rather robotically. Or maybe you're too used to seeing emotional drivers..."Uh... How long was I out for?""Hm...for a good seven or eight hours. We were worried that you'd be out for longer."Parking the car, you see a rather bleak hospital right in front of you. Walking inside, you see a bored looking female receptionist, wearing a deadpan expression. Taking the lead, Miss Militia begins politely speaking"Is Panacea in, miss?""Yes, she's currently on the second floor, at Ward E. Go knock yourself out.""Thank you."Following her, she takes you up the wooden stairs and begins walking past through several rooms. It doesn't take long until you reach 'Ward E'. Together, both of you enter.The first thing you witness is a mousy girl on the brink of exhaustion. Just from looking, you can tell the bags under her eyes are real. The second thing that comes into the frame is her red and white robe that has several medical crosses. [Green]"Hm... she doesn't look too great herself. Perhaps we should-"Cutting you off, Miss Militia slowly walks upfront of the battered women."Panacea... can I ask of you one last job for the day?""S-sure... what is it?""I need you to do some checks on this guy, behind me. Fix any bruises or wounds he may or may not have.""Fine... let's get this over with."Moving towards you, she places her right hand on your shoulder. Immediately, you experience a downright weird sensation within your body. After a few minutes of this, she finally removes her hand."Done..."After a long pause, she almost instantly rolls back onto an empty hospital bed. Shrugging, you can tell your body's feeling much better."That was... something."Getting back into the car, you notice the sunset slowly fading away from the city. Your driver, Miss Militia begins picking up the pace until you reach the dreaded monstrosity that is the floating base of the Protectorate. Taking out a badge, she waves it around some kind of scanner until... a blue forcefield forms above the ocean? Casually, she drives on it like a road until you're finally inside the compound.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>3309909rolling seduction on Pan Pan
>>3309909You know what would be a good thing to do for Amy?Making a Auto-Docs or healing potions for the BB hospitals so she doesn't work herself to death/insanity.And put a swastika on them.
>>3309932While that would be entertaining, I think they'll be boring and scrape it off or paint over it. And then send us to Glenn Chambers for 90000000000 hours of mandatory PR sessions.
>>3309942>I think they'll be boring and scrape it off or paint over it.Unless we tell them that'll ruin the Tinkeretch, or better yet make it so getting rid of the swastika actually breaks it.>Imb4 we make Armsmaster drive to every hospital to modify the devise to get rid of the swastika.>Imb4 we then get called in immediately after cause it "coincidentally" broke. just slap the swastika back and it's good as new.
>>3309952>Unless we tell them that'll ruin the TinkeretchI once read a fanfic on SB where Taylor is a Tinker who can make supertech but it needs to be obviously Nazi with Hakenkreuzes everywhere or it doesn't work.>Imb4 we make Armsmaster drive to every hospital to modify the devise to get rid of the swastika.>Imb4 we then get called in immediately after cause it "coincidentally" broke. just slap the swastika back and it's good as new.Delightfully devilish, Sëymöur
>>3309958>I once read a fanfic on SB where Taylor is a Tinker who can make supertech but it needs to be obviously Nazi with Hakenkreuzes everywhere or it doesn't work.Same.
Another Amrsmaster prank idea.Dress up as him/robocop, call ourselves armsmaster 2.0 then go around town yelling "OY! You got a license for that cutlery!"
>>3309973Just use a text-to-speech robot voice and tell people we couldn't tell the difference when they ask why.>Imb4 we're such a prank grandmaster Clockblock and assault join us during our escapades despite us being a nazi.
>>3309966Also supporting. Let’s make sure to be as loud, annoying, and obnoxious in public as Armsmaster 2.0 as possible.
>>3309909Finally inside you almost begin foaming. You've heard rumors about this place, but it's quite literally a tinker's paradise. Aesthetically and Architecturally speaking, it's practically an art piece. Smirking, Miss Militia seems to detect your amazement. Parking her car, she motions for you to exit. Complying, you still try to take it all in."This is my... Home.""Yep, get used to it. Believe it or not, that reaction is common."Pondering something, she takes out a phone and begins messing around with it. After a few minutes of sightseeing, you see Assault slowly greet both of you."Hey, you're a bit later than I expected, was traffic a problem?""No, but I had to make a short stop at the hospital. Our new co-worker here apparently didn't feel that great, so we sorted him out."Nodding, he stays quiet for a few moments before facing you directly."I imagine this a bit awkward for the both of us, but let's leave the past in the past, huh? You've got a new start here, let's use it."Smiling, he offers you a friendly handshakeTake it, there's no point in being an unsociable dickRefuse
>>3309990>take it, there's no need to be unsociablelet's try and keep up the front of being a "good guy"
>>3309990>Take it, there's no point in being an unsociable dickHe is the only good hero here so might as well.Don't shake anyone else's though.
>>3309990>Take it, there's no point in being an unsociable dickIt will be all the sweeter when we Betray them
>>3309995>>3309997>>3310000>>3310002>Take itwins italso>3310000wew lad, nice
Another Armsmaster prank.We keep "Improving" his bike, adding minor annoyances and stuff.Make it so his muffler plays the La Cucaracha.
>>3310009Yo Akire, you got a Discord? I got a shitton of sources and links you might find useful for the quest. or should I just dump em here?
>>33100003310000 GET confirms, we need to NTR Battery
>>3310015dump them in here so everyone can read them mate
>>3310010It's The perfect excuse tooLike say if we prank him every once in a while it'll be the perfect excuse to slip something in there later on that could make his engine go out when we need it the most (AKA escaping)
>>3310015 Akire, Sorcerer of Autism#4529Is that you ShadowNilNo idea if you're supposed to enter the full thing or just the numbers, sorry lad
Another prank idea, this time for the Entire PTR.Became a repeated guest star for the Uber and Leet show, where we talk shit and joke about all the gangs in BB including the PTR.
>>3310015>>3310022If you could, please dump it here cause i would like to see them and don't like discord.
>>3310027https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vMWTQXS-IfSuPIPC_gCuUrL3L53Ohhp7If anybody seriously wants to run any Worm-related thing, this is THE largest resource folder for it that I have found. Enjoy.
We could also do the hail hydra/hitler for psychological effects Like they get destroyed and on there last strength they hear there kinda friend readying a gun to there head an saying the biggest backstab in there lifeWe just need the next nazi rally or when the 1488 cause trouble for the backstabbing
>>3310023And has space-warping to be bigger on the inside.Why don't we make a police booth?
>>3309990Deciding that acting like an ass isn't a great way to start off, you take the man's handshake. After a few seconds, you both let go, and you wait for him to continue."I'll take over from here, Miss Militia."Nodding, she leaves you the two of you."So... where'd you like to start? There's your living quarters, The workshop, The cafeteria, Hm... ah, yeah there's that." Searching his pockets, he takes out an over-designed watch of sorts and shows it to you."Starting now, you'll be required to wear this watch."Frowning, you're left a bit confused."Why?""Because this is our way of keeping 'watch' over you. This thing will track your position, heart rate, and body temperature. And please, don't try to remove it, because if you do, you'll be sent flat-out cold due to being injected with a tinker-drug.""Huh..."Moving closer, he gently grabs your right hand and slaps the thing on. Automatically, the device adjusts itself to your arm and fits like a glove. Surprisingly, the thing's rather lighter than it looks."There, now as I was saying, where do you want to start off? If you're hungry, we can check out the cafeteria. If you're wanting to find whatever none-confiscated goods you have left are, they should be in your new living arrangements. Or, since you're a tinker, we could always check out the workshop. Your call, man.">Your new living quarters>Workshop>Cafeteria
>>3310050>WorkshopOf course they Collar us like an Animal
>>3310050>posts that>doesn't get a fivecheck this 5
>>3310050>>Your new living quartersAlso could I bother you for one small really insignificant thing? An apology for STOMPING ON MY THROAT?
>>3310050this >>3310054 but also after a silent pause after his apology>"...Good fight though."because cape fights are FUN
>>3310050>WorkshopAlso >>3310055, because we are gracious in defeat.
>>3310050>WorkshopAlso if we really want to fuck the prt we could build a big fucking bomb tied to our heartbeat or a camera sensor
Looks like >Workshopwins itWritan
>>3310050"Before I answer, where's my damn apology for STOMPING on my throat?"Sheepishly grinning, Assault strokes his head"Sorry about that...""Good fight, though"Smirking, you both let out a chuckle "I was just fucking with you, anyway I'd prefer to check out the Workshop since I'm probably going to spend most of my time there.""Righto, follow me then."Keeping pace, you enter through several unfamiliar buildings and finally arrive at an elevator. After some brisk small-talk, you finally hear a 'ding' and proceed to exit. Taking a few more turns, your brain is almost left mushy as you try to remember the route. After a few more minutes of walking, both of you stand in front of an outright massive door. Confused, you see Assault bang his hand against the door"Chris! You there?"After a few seconds of silence, you hear the door creak open. Instantly, you're met with a dirty teenager with brown hair. "What is it? I'm a bit busy...""I need you to show this newbie around the workshop, he's our new tinker you see.""Fine, fine come in. Watch the ground, would ya? I may have been a bit too messy."Entering inside, you're left a bit gobsmacked. This isn't just messy, this is a damn eyesore! How hard is it to keep stuff relativity tidy?! Everything is everywhere! "So, uh... I guess I can show you where we put everything. Don't touch any of my half-finished junk.""Sure... Hm... why is this place so damn untidy?!""Huh...?""I'm asking, why is there zero organization! you've just dumped everything everywhere! Good grief..."Sighing, you're left a bit discouraged. This isn't exactly a great start..."First off, why haven't you stored all the tools neatly in one place!? Secondly, why haven't you stored your materials in different piles?"For a good half hour, you barrage the poor kid with criticisms about his tinkering etiquette."-And that's why creating a multi-tool is the most efficient way to forward your tinkering."Finally stopping, you let the Chris absorb all your useful advice."Wow... uh... you're a real expert, huh? Did you study engineering or something at University?""Hm?""Well, you're clearly an adult, so it wouldn't be that surprising.""Well, you're half right. I did study at Uni, although my subject wasn't Engineering...""What was it, then?""Well...">Funnily enough, Parahumans (???)>A doctorate(???)>Atomic Physics(???)>Write in
>>3310130>Funnily enough, Parahumans
>>3310130>Atomic Physics(???)Time to make some fallout tech or just build a nuke
>>3310130It was how to piss people off.
>>3310136Don't you mean Politics and philosophy?
>>3310138Supporting. Let’s make some brain juice serum to make Hermann more smarter. Also maybe his doctoral thesis was rejected or unfairly rejected because of people learning about his nascent Aryan views.
>>3310134Changing this to this>>3310138>>3310148>It was about the theory of race realism
>>3310159He was the bad goy
>>3310175the elite are the Zionist death squad
>>3309883Nah, they've got Dragon, who could easily copy our shit.
>>3310175>implications that ashkenazi haplogroups were susceptible to certain neurological illnesses and diseasesGood>as well as the data showing that sub Saharan populations had the neurological development, on average, of a European or East Asian with Down syndromeNow, don't go full /pol/
>>3310203yes full /pol/
>>3310203Full /pol/ this is literally Reich quest. The fact that it’s true makes it even funnier.
>>3310130this>>3310138>>3310148>>3310153>>3310159>>3310175>>3310203he wasn't always /pol/ but he became /pol/ out of realization
Closing the vote in 20 minutes
>>3310207>>3310210>>3310214I worry that this will go the way of NEET Quest, dead after it got taken over by /pol/tards.Also, I will remind you that Nazism is somewhat different from /pol/faggotry: if nothing else, Nazis like Aryan Indians and /pol/tards write them off as poos as far as I know
>>3310243Only actual retards don't appreciate the difference, the problem is the majority of India is full of streetshitter tier Subhumans.
And the votes are in!>Doctoratewins, writing
>>3310253It got taken over by /pol/. They made a thing about the MC shooting black and mexican criminals, making friends with some neo-nazis in prison, and scoring a few chicks despite being below-average and a bit chubby (although that last bit was because of his reputation as a hero). There was the bit where his Jewish lawyer pushed him to make a deal and anons made him say something about shekels that pissed off Goldstein.>inb4 "seething"I followed that quest for a bit when it was still young.I'll stop here before I go too off-topic.
>>3310296...I think we're not reading the same NEET Quest.There were two NEET Quests. The first one had a Chinese-American nerd protagonist and the second one (which I'm talking about) had a Nordic-descent lardass protagonist.Or if we're reading the same NEET Quest, then that part probably comes a bit before the shit happened.unless my brain box is broken again
>>3310302You're not anon, I remember that quest well. I think >>3310296is talking about that cape one made by uberLEET or whatever his name is.
>>3310281"I studied for a doctorate, funnily enough...""Wait, so you're actually a doctor!?"Letting out a wry smile, you're bombarded with bitter memories. Taking your Grandfather's advice, you ended up getting good enough grades to study aboard. "Technically, no. I didn't finish the four-year course."Nodding respectfully, the both of you stay awkwardly silent."Hm, I think it's about time to leave. Nice to meet you, Chris. The name's Hermann."Leaving it at that, you exit the room and see Assault on the phone"Sorry Battery, he's back. I'll call you again later."Pressing a button, he places his new looking phone inside a pocket."Satisfied?""Well, I've lasted my stay long enough. What's left, the cafeteria and my room?""Yeah, where next?">Cafeteria>Living Quarters
>>3310328>CafeteriaWhere's the food?
>>3310328>>Living QuartersSo why is miss militia allowed to walk free after burning mr buggy?
>>3310347preach it brother
>>3310328>CafeteriaWe need proteins to stay swole
>>3310384Stopping for the day, I got a fucking pounding headache, sorry guys. I'll resume tomorrow.
>>3310577Cya tommorow, Akire.I can't wait to be the worlds nicest guy to everyone here except Armstism just so our inevitable betrayal is even more shocking.Alternatively we attempt to sow dissent until eventually we manage to cause a splinter to break away from the PRT.I don't want to kill the non autistic people working here, personally. The ones that are trying to make the world a better place but are merely misguided and led by a thuggish, inefficient leadership I'm less ok with killing than "SUPERHERO MY JOB, POINT ME IN DIRECTION AND GIVE PROMOTION PLEEEASSEE". Also I like the idea of building medical shit (for Good Boy points and totally not for imbibing ourselves with fucktons of genemods and NANOMACHINES SON(if we can make em))Also recruiting Panacea could be a "good" plan and medical tech would give us some sort of launch platform.
>>3309909i hate the ugly tumblr fanart for this series>>3310606It doesn't take much effort to be a nice person. We can do bio tínker shit right? We need to identify the knockout drug in the watch and give ourselves immunity or concoct an antidote on the sly. Befriending Panacea is always good, you don't want to be on bad terms with the people who keep you alive.I have a problem with making plans in the Worm quests, because it's impossible to avoid abusing meta knowledge, and metagaming is gay
>>3310643Just bet on my plan anon, outside of a rough grasp on some people's powers and personality I haven't got a fucking clue about this series.
>>3310643I really like the idea of slowly and steadily developing countermeasures for everything the PRT could throw at us. Then release all of that online and watch the fireworks fly.
>>3310328>otherWhere's my shit and I want to go home and put everything in storage if I'm living here.
Do you guys think we should keep Eitri as our name or should we come up with a new name while we play hero?
>>3310807How about Brokkr (Eitri's brother) or Sindri (different name for Eitri in legend)?
>>3310826Actually if we want to fit in maybe something less Norse like Hammer, Blacksmith or my personal favourite, Forgemaster (for the Armsy triggering)
>>3310807I'm down for Eitri
>>3310845Blacksmith and Forgemaster sound pretty good, but what would our costume be? Hell what costume would we wear as Eitri? I don’t think we ever decided on that.
>>3310857We could stick to the black power armor design. We were in he middle of modifying our exo-suit into power armor.
>>3310845Maybe Proto or Prototype? Or maybe Blueprint? I also like Breakthrough or Eureka as names.
>>3310889Those two names give away our true capabilities.
>>3310807>>3310845CelebrimborThe smith Sauron used to forge the rings of power
>>3310915A fictional smith for a deceptive alias?Clever.Unfortunately we're gonna be called a fucking meganerd for that one.
>>3310862If we make black power armor i want to put many red and blue leds in the gaps and eyes to make it look menacing and activate our red leds with a switch infront of the heros and when the heros say that we look like a villain we slap our forehead and say something like ''Oh right im a hero now'' and then desactivate the red ones with a switch labeled villain(for the red ones) and hero (for the blue ones) just to fuck with them
>>3310978oh also in our inevitable betrayal i want to change our leds from blue to red just to make them realize we never where in the hero business to begin with
>>3310978>>3310983Doing shit like this is gonna get even more precautionary action taken against us.At this point as far as the PRT know we're just a good boy who killed some assholes.
>>3310978No? Let's keep it a simple color pallet. I forgot the last suggested armor but this is close enough.
>>3311003Pretty sure we were talking Jin Roh
>>3311003We probably shouldn't go for that look when we want those sweet sweet PRT good boy points.
>>3310889why not something simple like artificer or something cheesy like Makino, the alias is temporal after all, also its not so much the name but what we MAKE of the name Skitter or jack slash don't make an impact with just hearing them, but the story changes when you know the things the people who hold those names are capable of
>>3311020This ain't heavy enough nor covers enough body to constitute as "traditional" power armor>>3311021and I see nothing wrong with the armor.
>>3311021What about this one ?>>3311029We are a HERO not the military police
>>3311029Anon, it looks pretty uh.Evil.
>>3311036Our purpose is essentially law enforcement, plus I like the German armour style
>>3311042Don't be a retard, we don't want to tip them off too hard.
>>3311036I don't see how it's military police themed and the suit design I posted doesn't mean it's not Hero material.Definitely not going for the Spartan armor. If we have force field and reactive gel technology then maybe, but if no then this hardly covers anything. It looks like you'd be wearing a spandex suit under some pieces of armor while your arms are still relatively exposed. We need that sweet full body protection.>>3311050what do you mean?
>>3311050To what? There’s plenty of heroes that look like villains and villains that look like heroes and haven’t done anything other than basic vigilantism
>>3311050>we don't want to tip them offAnon, they already have Thinkers mindraping us for our plans. From the Sorcerer himself:>>3293085>By the time you're at ENE headquarters, they will have employed several thinkers on you.
>>3311071>>3311076Going too hard on the German theme in a city that has a good quarter controlled by Nazi larpers is silly.
>>3310915sounds goodshell even the lord of gifts (forgot his name) and Feanor sounds badass too
>>3311088Except it’s literally the theme our power locks us into, we can’t make anything that doesn’t look German
>>3311088>on the worm nazi quest
>>3311088I'd rather not settle for anything less than. The PRT can such it and I like to thing in some way this is paying homage to grandpa.
>>3311097I don't recall that limitation.>>3311104Yes? And?>>3311105There's "paying homage to Grandpa" and "HEY PRT LOOK AT ME I'M A NAZI CAN YOU TAKE TAKE THE CAMERAS OUT OF EVERYWHERE I GO AND REMOVE THE DRUG COLLAR?".We want to avoid them looking at us super closely, dressing like an E88 wannabe whilst technically working for the PRT is gonna fuck us in the ass.
>>3311097Unless you mean as a fake weakness for the PRT i don't see that much merit to making all our equipment look german, also theres a limit in how many things germany produced and what do you even mean that our power makes it so we can only make things german-looking, you mean aestetic or solid/durable perhaps?
>>3311104We are trying to not look like a nazi atm anon... we are supposed to be the ''good'' guys now
>>3311134You're over reacting. So long as we don't put swastikas on the armor we'll be fine.
I still don't see how this >>3311003 or this >>3311020 instantly makes us nazis. I don't see any WWII German stuff or swastikas on them.
>>3311143Anon, if you can't see the negative aspects dressing like a fucking member of a German deathsquad will have I don't know what to say.We do not want them to think we're gonna betray them, we want them to think we're another normalfag.We need to hide our powerlevel for now.
>>3311142for now them we backstab them
>>3311157they already have thinkers on us
If we are going to use heavy power armour, maybe something like this? Although I'm personally in favour of a lighter, speedy approach given staying at range keeps us safe. Also the already discussed forms of P.A are fine, so long as we don't go running about talking about reclaiming the polish corridor or asking people why we can't play "Erika" on patrol.
>>3311168They are sherlock homes level detective at best and just empathic readers at worst not mindreaders or tattletale
>>3311168Yeah, and they haven't instantly changed the deal so it's safe to say as of right now they aren't incredibly suspicious. We start doing stupid shit and we're getting looked at with a fine tooth comb faster than you can say "Schnell"
>>3311181I think thats perhaps too heavy what about something like this?
>>3311157They already know we can make exosuits, modify pump action shotguns into automatics, create automated turrets, and make stun lasers which I hope we could see to the PRT for lots of money.So I'm sticking with wanting the german (not nazi) power armor design, and there's not much to hide from a thinker.>>3311181You sexy beast.>>3311183sherlock homes on brain steroids more like.
>>3311192>>3311036Essentially the same thing. Just a spandex suit under heavy armor.
>>3311197Anon, if there wasn't "too much" we managed to hide from their thinkers we would have more than just a knock out drug bracelet.
>>3311210Or maybe they believe the bracelet is more than enough. There might be a listening device and possibly a camera inside the watch Dragon can use to spy on us.
What about this? Just abb some stuff from some of the other designs proposed and it might look neat.
>>3311201We have to be in the armor for hours and fight in it, also tinker tech or not heavy armor slows you, we are tinkers not reality warpers, we can bend and alter the laws of physics but not outright ignore them unless we make projects at the level of String Theory (a tinker who makes Doomsday devices)
>>3311222...It's a little bulky, and the armor's got some thicc legs going on.
Astartes power armor looks sweet af
>>3311222i think its ok if we remobe the we remove the shoulder pads, thin the legs armor a bit remove whatever the shit is in our back and chaestplate, those are very obvious weakpoints
>>3311217Anon, if they knew our capabilities they'd probably have used a collar.We could make a cybernetic hand or something to reattach the hand, then we fucking slice it straight off and pop the bracelet right off.Hell, we time it right we can probably get Panacea to reattach it.Good luck with your drug now, assholes.
>>3311229Yeah, the legs do look retarded but that’s why I said we could add stuff from some of the other designs.
>>3311242>we remobe the we removewe remove
>>3311137German aesthetic >>3311134It’s part of every tinker’s limitation, everything they make is part of a specific aesthetic. Sphere/Manniquin doesn’t look like that because he thinks it looks neat he looks like that because his power forces him to
>>3311222Hellfire armour?Why not go for the classic Enclave look?
>>3311243>wanting to cut off our own hand>"Because this is our way of keeping 'watch' over you. This thing will track your position, heart rate, and body temperature. And please, don't try to remove it, because if you do, you'll be sent flat-out cold due to being injected with a tinker-drug."This does not sound like an all too great idea. Wouldn't they try to track us down? Where would we even be able to do such a thing with the right medical tools? Would Hermann be willing to cut off his own arm? Would you?
>>3311263Cause I couldn’t find a good image of it to use
>>3310807>>3310826>>3310853Didn't we plan for Janissary or something?
>>3311266If i can use my technomagic powers to make a pain inhibitor be it a drug or a nerveous signals inhibitor?yeah i would
>>3311036>Halo 5 armor designEwww no.
>>3311272How about this?>>3311266>cut off own arm is too much>for a few minutes tops before putting it back or replacing itWe could even make some tinkertech pain suppressants if you're gonna be a pussy about it.
>>3311263What do you think about this armor for when we return to villany?
>>3311300Pretty nice, maybe a little too bio-mechanic looking.
>>3311296Yeah that looks pretty good, a bit thicc but it definitely could work.
>>3311296good stuff. more armor is always a plus.
>>3311296What if the anti tinker drug gets injected into our severed hand? Then if we reattach it, it would end up knocking us out when we reattach the blood flow and we could bleed out halfway through surgery.>>3311296Everything looks good but the helmet.>>3311300Looks like face portion is the inside walls of a vagina.
>>3311321If it activates (technically we haven't touched it) we'll just have to put the hand on ice for a while before we reattach it.On the flipside if we somehow successfully recruit Panacea then I doubt the drug would be something we'd have to worry about for long.
>>3311338Oh also we could make a Cybernetic hand instead if you're that worried.
>>3311342>Wanting to defile our beautiful flesh for vain metal and cheap cybernetics.How dare you, we are not of weak flesh like the as skin nazi.
>>3311355>not wanting to go full Stroheim on the PRT>not wanting to reveal a machine gun dick shortly before blowing Assblaster away
Vauban looks pretty heroic
>>3311441I still think Helghast or Jin roh is the way to go, but if we really need to dress nice for the pr department I like this
>>3311355>>3311389Gentlemen, you fail to conceive of the greatest form possible. The cold resilience of metal, the brutal adaptability of nature and the dominance of a superior mind all melding into one form.We shall not achieve it by crude implements of iron, attached to flesh like a ship's surgeon from the 1700's. No, we shall create machines and medicines to cure and reconstruct us, to draw from our flesh that most universal condition: weakness.We must solve our fundamental weaknesses and work our way up. We must become tireless, unageing, unfeeling of pain and from this fine foundation, we shall build a temple of the human form to bear forth our will.
>>3311469flesh is weak but steel is strong
>>3311003This was the last suggested one.
>>3311597It was the least I could do since I was the who posted it in the first place.
>>3312107Because we might as well finish what we started. I don't want to get gunned downed or knifed during a patrol. The lab rats idea is great, but it's unfortunate that the formula won't escape the PRT, what with the watch and all.
>>3311263>>3311296>>3311300>>3311441>>3311458>>3311484>>3311561You were talking designs without me?
>>3312472As much as I like this, and I really do, I like the other one by >>3311561 more. It's so tanky.
What about Helghan armor? It is pretty aesthetic.
>>3312606Why are people even discussing armor when the fucking PRT is just gonna sabotage it and steal whatever they can from us? Let’s just do the brain enhancement and super soldier serum before we even think about anything else.
>>3312614i think you understimate how hard making the super soldier serum could be, also i think it would be more realistic if the inteligence serum would make us more inteligent gradually, throught doses over various days/weeks
>>3312634it doesn't mater much in this case thats kid win who we talked whit, we should not give advice to armsmaster or dragon, also since we are discussing this i propose that we try to pass as a Limit x Combat thinker, basically a tinker that has a main field, but can incorporate other tinker desigs in his work and can dabble in other fields, the combat part is self explaneatory basically combat focused creations
>>3312614Because it is fun anon.It will be a while until we can create the super soldier/smart serum, so we'll need a costume until then for public appearances, patrols, etc.Also I don't think we should go full power armor yet, something like pic related would be the best option IMO.
>>3312671Thats ok the only problem i see is how to obtain those rats, it would look suspicious if we go to a pet shop in search of lab rats while being watched
Heres the worm wiki tinker page btw:https://worm.fandom.com/wiki/Tinkerif someone wants to look at it
>>3312697Honestly i would be very suspicious of a guy whose speciality i don't know, also considering that bio tinkers exist you can't be 100% sure that he can't one day give himself super steroids and escape
>>3312731I know that we are a free tinker but i still can't shake the feeling that the moment we step out of sight they will start questioning us with the aid of their thinkers, also on another note, i would like us to start tinkering for a water repelant of some kind with the excuse for it being that the rain could fuck with our tech or simply doing it because we could, because if you lot don't remember levi has water sense
>>3311484https://youtu.be/P2EQ0FlVks4?t=24>>3312614>>3312634They could get their hands on our serum too, and that would be worse than them duplicating our current armour and tech.
>>3312991They'll want to examine the samples we make "before" we test them on the rate or the left over samples. They'll also want to know the purpose for us injecting rats. We'll probably have to order rats and the chemicals from them to do so.
>>3312991And no ones gonna ask what the Rats are for? What if they escape and start a nest somewhere in the building? I think your desire for this is making you overconfident. While its not impossible to do, there is a lot more we need to plan and figure out. I think that we should escape before doing any heavy type of experimentation while making altruistic inventions for the public.The best bet we would have imo is trying to make contact with the E88 or get them interested enough into us to make the contact, and have them help us escape.
>>3313017We do actually have to tell them or give them the things to be inspected. They would want to know about such a catalyst, and there is no doubt they would know.
>>3313040Again they would probably keep record of everything we do. Still down the odds of hiding anything.
>>3313051One thing I do think we should make is a Tinker oven that can make food....ONLY German food. Just the one oven.
>>3313051Retard tier plan.There's multiple things we need to be prepared for in those 2 years.
>>3313066You're acting like a retard. We NEED to be at peak performance and escape, PRT thinkers aren't the best anyway OTHERWISE THE DEAL WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MADE.I know this is OOC knowledge but there's the leviathan attack very soonGold Morning will eventually come too.
>>3313090Anon, there are multiple ways we can escape.We need to slowly redpill the more useful heroes.Also considering we can make And upgrade ANYTHING you're being a bit too defeatist. Idea: don't attempt to remove bracelet, attempt to upgrade it into a knockout dart shooter maybe.Cutting off our hand works around it too.Making our own AI to fuck with it and Dragon is possibly a thing too.
>>3313115You don't know that, besides stop being such a defeatist loser pussyfaggot.>durrr escape too hard>hurr but me no want to do nuffin for PRT>me kill quest! We no do anything!Either the full on escape plan or the pretending to be a good boy are both viable options.Being a useless sack of shit isn't. And we're a tinker, we've got a compulsive urge to tinker.
Back, writing >Implying the PRT will let you make another power armor so soonHAR HAR
>>3313167Alright.Time to remove hand.
>>3312999This is most probable. We would also have to have tight OPSEC procedures by disposing of everything we don't immediately need that day and probably have a little compactor/incinerator for blueprints and other items.We also have to deal with surprise inspections while we are in the middle of work.More than likely we would be under video surveillance.
>>3313051>>3313066No, just no. We can refine ourselves and us it to build up other things such as our body, and intellect, even without any cheat serums. We can read and study, work out to sculpt our body into a white marble Adonis.
>>3309932>>3313167I liked Mechanicus's idea of building an autodoc like from Elysium to help Panacea. Seems in character from how Hermann was concerned when he saw her.
>>3313222sounds like a plan.
>>3313230Panacea is trash. The PRT is trash. Voting to let her go fuck herself.
>>3313230>>3313244>REEEEEEEEE PRTI just want to point out that if we ever want to truly win, if we ever want to realize Hermann's end goal, then we have to look like the REAL good guy. We have to be seen as a good person, or nobody will follow us. We have to make them think highly of us if we ever want to win anyone over ideologically.
>>3313230>>3313244Don't be mean to Panacea.She's a good girl who's doing her best.Also has a top tier power.
>>3313280Could she give Herman a bigger dick?>>3313282>It’s in character for Hermann to really, really, REALLY hate and distrust the PRT.I didn't get any ques that he does so far.
>>3313286>Could she give Herman a bigger dick?Only temporarily.
>>3313282>acting like screeching /pol/ retard instead of masterfully manipulating people from the shadows into joining your cause Most of the PRT heroes would be displeased at CuckBusters antics.
>>3313286>>3313297So you think Hermann should enjoy the no lube assraping and railroading the PRT has done to him, his life, and his future ambitions? That he should just take it lying down and ask for more cock up his ass?
>>3313300>acting the part so we can eventually crush them in one blow is taking it up the ass. We won't get anywhere by acting like a raging babyman.
>>3313300He could if he wants to. Free food, a place to live with no rent, all the materials he could ever ask for, a steady job.I think the chance to legally beat on some ABB chink eyes would be a plus in his book.
>>3313306Did I say anything about being open about that hatred and distrust? No. We play nice, then when we have prepared our escape we literally nuke their base.
>>3313312But why not see if we can grab some allies along the way?Also pissing off Dragon (also everyone else) with nuking Brockton Bay seems like a bad idea considering her powerset.Also the Triumvirate would come after us too.
>>3313282>>3313300>prt railroadingmaybe if anons didnt vote on killing people the prt wouldn't have been on our ass so hard
>>3313308And only having to hand over all of his work to benefit the people who spied on him, assaulted him, and forced him into slavery. Truly a good deal. Especially the chance to beat down some ABB goons, even though last thread showed that the ABB was being taken apart by everyone else since we severely weakened them in the junkyard by taking out Oni Lee and tons of goons. Handing over our freedom and independence is definitely worth doing what we were already doing, only now we get to hand over all of our cool shit to the people who spied on us, assaulted us, and enslaved us.
>>3313323That’s only because we literally crit failed multiple times.
>>3313312Then stop raging and plan cooly, and calmly like a supervillan mastermind.Most of us aren't okay with being a wage slave or sitting out the next whole 2 years. We were just getting our footing before we got knocked down. Now we have to regain our footing before getting scheming again.
>>3313323I think we also went back for to many things instead of cutting our losses and escaping.
>>3313341I could have gone without the shotgun, but I would have rather taken the welder and the laser stung gun then bolted.I think it was due to the fact that we were in combat and anons made decision on the mediate short term need, to benefit us even tho we didn't us it in combat.Also, we didn't get the Mossberg Maverick 88!Its cheaper than the shotgun we bought and it would have been a fun little joke to.
"Let's get something to eat. Believe it or not, fighting three heroes really tires you out."Smirking, You and Assault walk pass countless guards, researchers and office workers on their shifts. Taking the elevator, you eventually reach a hall which could be described as a 'cafeteria'. Entering, you see various groups of people eating food. Heading towards the serving area, you select a few hot foods alongside your guide. Plate in hand, you quietly mind your own business and take an empty, clean plastic table. Assault follows suit, and you both begin digging in."This is free, right?""Yup, it's practically a buffet for everyone who works here. The heroes, office workers, researchers, doctors, teachers and whoever else we employ. I know a few of the cooks, great guys."Taking another bite, your mind drifts to one thing to another"So I was told I'd have to take classes, what kind exactly?""Hm... Self Defence, Arresting Procedure, various protocols on how to deal with each classification. Uh... there's probably more, although I can't really recall all of them on top of my head. They'll probably rotate the topics once they've deemed you well accustomed enough to move on. I wouldn't worry about it, practically everyone has to do it, even the Wards.""Ah, I nearly forgot. The Parahuman Science guys will probably ask you to do some testing. Since you're a tinker, I can imagine they'll do some tests for your specialty."Nodding along, you continue eating your food at a relaxed pace. Surprisingly, the general atmosphere is rather calm, contrary to your expectations. Taking a gulp of water, you try to enjoy yourself."When will I start work exactly?""A few days, I'd guess. Due to the obvious, you're kinda useless without any gear so they'll probably let you create a few gadgets or whatever. Still, don't expect any cape action soon."Finishing your meals more or less simultaneously, you place your dirty dishes and cutlery together."Let's get going, eh'?"cont
>>3313379Agreeing, you follow Assault outside, and he leads you through a now somewhat familiar elevator. Pressing '-1 F', the both of you descend downwards. After a short period passes by, the elevator's door opens and you're met with more confusing hallways... Letting Assault show you the way, he leads you towards a room labeled 1-P.Taking out a keycard, Assault slaps it in front of a sensor, and you hear the door 'click'"This is yours, I'll be leaving Hermann. Good night."Taking the plastic card in question, you wave him goodbye before entering your new room.Walking inside, the first thing that stands out is the space. Wandering around, you notice there are two differing areas. One is the 'office', where there's one massive desk, coupled with a fairly nice looking monitor and computer. Next to it exists a pile of paper that somehow seem ominous.In the main part of the room exists a rather comfy looking Mahagonny bed, coupled with a few drawers and closets. There's, of course, a bathroom at the very end. On top of the bed in question, you find a small cardboard box labeled 'possessions'. Opening it up, you find some recognizable items. Some clothes, and some other junk you've never bothered with. What catches your notice however is your Multi-Tool. On it, is a post note saying 'Testing has proved that this item is safe for use.' Moving towards your newfound desk, you glance at the first few pages and try to get a general idea of what it's trying to say*You will be required to join in several classes, go on patrols and join in public events.*So far, you will only be allowed your Multi-Tool. Everything else is locked away, and will only be used in case of a Class A threat or higher.*You will need to come up with an appropriate hero name, identity and costume within the next three days. On the 29th, we've arranged a meeting with an expert at 11:10.*Any sharp or lethal weaponry will be immediately vetoed for use. Additionally, you must submit any tinker-gear you plan to use for testing.*You will receive a monthly budget for materials. *On the 29th, at 13:35 you will be required to conduct in testing of your powers, with several parahuman researchers.*Any conflict with PRT staff will be severely reprimanded. *Inside the drawer in front of you should be a PRT issued phone, this will be your work phone.*Mandatory therapist sessions will occur every three days.Taking everything in, you fall down onto your bed and the exhaustion from earlier hits you in full force.>Day End

Chastising yourself, you realize that they didn't return the AWG, frowning, you wonder why the world is such a cruel place. Washing and drying yourself, you take out some casual clothes and wear them. Noticing the spare amount of time, you decide to spend it on sorting everything neatly. Turning on the computer, you set up a password before grabbing the piles of clothes and shoveling them inside the drawers. Grabbing your new work phone and keycard, you try to remember the way to the cafeteria...>Roll me some 1d20s, best out of three

Walking around, you think you're going the right way until->1your body collides with some idiot, and you're sent flying towards the ground. Getting up, you let out a moan of irritation"Look where you're going, moron. Good grief..."Turning to face your collider, you almost don't believe your eyes.

After finally getting towards the elevator, the rest of the trip is more or less uneventful.Arriving at the cafeteria, you pick out some delicious looking bacon and egg sandwiches before considering the matter of seating.

We're here, find a way to get out that doesn't get us sent to the cage or murdered instead of ranting at the other players.We play our cards right to gain allies or sympathisers, devise a way to remove the watch without getting conked by the knockout drug and when Leviathan hits we escape in the confusion.

>>3313757I like this idea. A lot. I don’t know how we would do it, but it sounds good.
>>3313612Minding your own business, you take out your newly acquired food to an empty, plastic table nearby. Eating your meal emotionlessly you watch groups of people grabbing their breakfast. Some are dressed in guard uniforms, others in lab-coats, and a few wear mundane office attire. A few groups stand out, however. Those dressed in non-work related clothing are the obvious exceptions. It doesn't exactly take a grade A detective to deduce that they're probably either heroes or wards. Resuming, you finish off your food before you receive an alert on your phone. Taking it out, you read the message.*Meeting in 15 minutes, stay at your location. We'll send a guard over to guide you.*Shrugging it off, you choose to comply. Finishing off some coffee, you finally see a goon walk up to you."Mr.Schmidt, I presume?""Yeah, that's me. Let's get this over with."Leaving your seat, you let mook guide the way. After a few minutes of mindlessly following, you finally reach a building called the 'PR Branch'. Walking inside, the first thing you see and hear is a pissed off man yelling at his co-worker"You call that fuckin' poster!? Get outta' my sight you incompetent buffoon, you better show me something damn good or I'll cut your damn paycheck in half!"Taking it all in, you see the young worker shamefully walk away back to his assumed seat. Cautiously, you slowly walk up to the ferocious middle-aged man in question. "Excuse me...""Who the fuck are you, Jimbo? What do you want?""Apparently I have a meeting here...?""Ah, you're that new cape. Great, take a seat. We're going to be here for awhile."Doing as he orders, you grab a chair from nearby and seat yourself."Now, before we begin here let's set up some rules. One, no edgy shit. I already get enough slack from the higher-ups due to the whole Shadow Stalker situation. Secondly, no power armor! I've been explicitly told that's a no go zone.""Today, we'll be focusing on an outfit and name. Got any bright ideas?">Names>Eitri>Monte-Cristo>Eureka>Write in>Outfits>Somekind of a heroic mad scientist>Write in
If anons were going to bitch about our tech getting used by the PRT then we should have gone to prison. At least then we would be doing everything possible to escape. If we can't build awesome shit then can we just skip this arc and start playing when our contract is up?
>>3313798NOFOR FUCKS SA-NOGOLDEN MORNING.>>3313793>Eureka>MADDO SCIENTIST
>>3313804+1They will probably reject this outright but it could be funny. If they reject it and ask for a different name let’s go with Armsmaster 2.0
>>3313793>Monte-Cristo>Somekind of a heroic mad scientistDidn't we finish our lab-coat under-amour thing? Just use that although now we're able to legally acquire better materials, maybe we can replace the fabric and such with something more resilient.
>>3313810YeahAKA "SuperSuperman goes apeshit and kills 10 Billion+ people"And it happens in about 2 years.
>>3313813Well that's great and all but the point still stands. We're a Nazi tinker who can't build awesome shit because PRT jacking it. Therefore we can't prepare. Therefore this whole arc is pointless.
>>3313793>Monkey-wrench.Monkey see, monkey do. We're supposed to be good at taking whatever and improving it. Wrench cause we build stuff. Monkey-wrench because it's a real tool,>Somekind of a heroic mad scientistLab coat made out of kevlar.
>>3313793What about the suggestion of Janissary last thread?Maybe Dr. Eureka? Wait we didn't get our doctorate did we?
>>3313817Stop being such a whiny bitch Jesus Christ. There will be plenty of opportunity here.Our shit being jacked was always gonna happen what with Dragon existing, but that's not a massive problem because we can just keep upgrading.There's plenty of opportunity and we're not allowed PA and cool things as of right now (meaning we need to get PRT goodboy points first)Also for lying about our power how about>we can make some tinkertech from scratch>we can upgrade normal tech to Tinkertech>we can only upgrade once and we can't upgrade items we've made ourselves
>>3313825I like both.
>>3313833I think I can live with Monte Cristo, I would rather save Eitri for when we go rouge or join E88.
>>3313819Monkey wrench for a name is more suited to repairs and fixing, not tinkering or creating.
>>3313793>EurekaSounds a lot like Erika if you pronounce it a certain way, huh guys? :^)>Somekind of a heroic mad scientist
>>3313845But we're a guy.... Are we gonna make boobs on our armor?
>>3313830I was talking about the anons bitching about our tech being used for the PRT during the power armor discussion earlier.
>>3313847I meant the song, dumbass
>>3313867Obviously that's what your referring to, but since we are naming our character. You sounded like you wanted to pull a rule 63 like a fag.
>>3313878By the way did you know complaining about Quest progression is against /qst/ rules?The more you know.
>>3313793Gonna vote for>Monte-CristoMaybe throw in "Count" at the begging in there.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Count_of_Monte_CristoWould be interestingly poetic in a sense?>The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book, an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness. It centres on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune, and sets about exacting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. His plans have devastating consequences for both the innocent and the guilty.
>>3313899>>3313891>>3313885>>3313883>>3313879>>3313878Uh... could you not shit up the thread please?I don't really like being 'that guy' but if you're going to argue, please make sure it's actually productive instead of>Faggot>No, you're the faggot>t.faggotAnyway, I'll be closing the vote in 30 minutes
Jesus christ this is a cancerous conversation you are all having. Feel I must point out a few things:1) >>3313883's a idiot, there is no such rule. I checked the http://www.4channel.org/rules# and it lists no such thing. So stop claiming there is.2) Who gives a shit if they actually get our tech? I mean 99% of the shit we could possibly make is stuff they already have access to and in all honesty we just need to create enough decent shit that our stack of tricks and gadgets can neutralise anyone they send after us. Especially given the fact that tinker-tech is unreliable and hard to maintain without an appropriately skilled tinker, so so long as we aren't producing some sort of miracle tech that they can't do without.3) We have two years to figure out a solution to all this shit and to be honest I think we can do some real good while we're waiting for a good time to break out or something. Everything from working out, to making a name for ourselves or just studying different pieces of tinker-tech made by others to improve our own skills. >>3313903See I agree but the problem is that it works better if we had gone to the birdcage and if we'd actually been betrayed. It is however probably the best name we're going to come up with anytime soon unless we agree to use Janissary.
Whats Golden Morning in this context? All I can find that's relevant is some song or band?
>>3313899>>3313883>>3313879>>3313875>>3313830Have you tried not being a cock gobbling faggot? A couple of people disagree with you and you start calling everyone retards and whiny bitches. You’re shitting up the thread. Could you try not being a faggot over people not agreeing with you?
I leave for a minute and now it's like that Fate quest in here
>>3313917Well I don't mind Janissary for it but theres been no offical votes for it, and since most casual look ups of Monte Cristo is some snack sandwich, most people won't think we're really planning revenge if we put on a bit of a comedic or silly personality and eat a bunch of Monte Cristo sandwich.
>>3313914I'm sorry this has happened.I just couldn't be assed to deal with more bitching about the stories direction and demanding two fucking year long timeskips.
>>3313920Golden Morning is when Zion gets off his ass because of Jack Slash and starts killing everyone. It's a pretty important milestone.
>>3313917Wouldn't it be funny......If when we first meet Coil he mistakenly calls us Monte Cristo, because in another timeline we ended up in jail after fighting the charges, but was a Pyrrhic victory for the PRT and when we broke out, we took the name of Monte Cristo, and maybe joined the E88?
>>3313925Oh fuck off you claimed it was a RULE as in something that would be listed as a part of the official rules of the site. Also there is nothing wrong with what he was saying you cunt, you tried to threaten his discussion as being against the rules in order to silence dissent against your views.>>3313928Fair enough, personally I like either.>>3313936That would be quite good.
>>3313793Finally caught a live one!I vote for Janissary as a name, with a military dress inspired uniform
>>3313928I'll vote for Janissary
>>3313948I couldn't care. I just want this quest to carry on towards some sort of fun activity rather than a few anons bitching backwards and forwards about how they are totally right about the correct outcome for everything and the other person is clinically wrong about anything they say.Also in regards to it being against the rules, I literally couldn't care. It doesn't matter given the complete lack of any enforcement on this board and to be honest it is a bullshit reason to report someone. Lastly, the only reason I didn't know is because I have never had a reason to report anyone on this site because I don't get anywhere near as assblasted as you do.
>>3313952what does that even mean?
>>3313793>>Monte-Cristo>Maybe throw in "Count" at the beginning in there.also i really like the double meaning with the snack sandwiches
>>3313960sounds jewish or am i being weird?
>>3313969i for that or Monte Cristo then
>>3313952Awe, shoot. Now I'm torn between holding onto my current vote and switching to Janissary.>>3313961In the context we are using it in. We are someone forcibly conscripted to join and fight in a battle we did not want any part of on a faction we hardly know.>>3313968Just a little. I think they didn't conscript jews, just christian boys.
>>3313957Someone has to report the raid requests that pop up.We all want to continue the quest but making suggestions like timeskipping for years is just silly, considering there is plenty to do in the mean time.Oh and in 2 years the E88 is fucked too.
>>3313960Because Hermann is a proud Aryan BVLL who doesn't sully his tongue with filthy Turk words>>3313961Next time look it up
>>3313969This, the story of the Janissary is really interesting as they slowly shifted over time from being a purely military force that had few social, economic or political powers into a force which somewhat caused the fall of the Ottomans thanks to their corruption.They were however highly respected and feared soldiers for the period, admittedly because the Ottomans generally marshalled forces larger than most nations they fought, equipped far better than most and religiously motivated in most of their wars. Especially because of their direct loyalty to the Sultan rendering them more reliable than any other force.
>>3313977i got the more exact meaning behind the name and intent then that picture from this >>3313969
>>3313972I entirely agree but I disagreed solely with the method by which you were attempting to win the argument.
>>3313804>>3313806>Super Armsmaster>>3313805>>3313845>Eureka>>3313808>>3313903 me, dunno if I will keep this vote>>3313958>>3313964>>3313970>Monte-Cristo>>3313819>Monkey-wrench.>>3313951>>3313952JanissaryDid I count this correctly?Maybe we can do run off voting.Might change to Janissary but that would still put it behind Monte Cristo.
>>3313991I vote Jannisary
>>3313996Just let it goThe moment has passed.Stop continuing to try to shit up the thread.
>>3313793>>3313903Gonna change my vote to Janissary then.My change plus >>3313994Would put us into a tie for the top two names of4 votes for Monte Cristo&4 votes Janissary.
>>3313991i really like the musical and the snack sandwiches thing is pretty hilarious
Rolled 56 (1d100)I already stated, I am happy with Monte Cristo or Janissary, so I'm going to roll a dice:1-50 = Janissary51-100 = Monte Cristo
>>3313805Changing to Monte-Cristo
>>3313991Janissary FTW, Monte Cristo sounds good but maybe it would tip them off, tough i only saw the movie, also Janissary fits with the Mythologic/ancient theme that many heroes like
>>3314006I know, me too. But I suppose I should explain myself. I feel that due to us lacking the more direct story of Monte Cristo, >>3313917 has a point in this and I agree. One of the main points of The Count of Monte Criso is that he is that he is Imprisoned. We never saw the insides of a jailcell for even a minute. Never had the chance for our hatred to really brew and build a fortune.We probably maybe have kept the name Eitri as well so it would have been a choice to change it from Eitri to another name. It may not have changed to Monte CristoWe are more like a Janissary due to our forced servitude and indoctrination into joining and likely fighting for the PRT for a little while. it can be a bit on the nose but its more accurate.That said, I won't be upset if Monte Cristo wins.
>>3314016It has a double meaning, and we are going to have to act to make them think it means the other, less malicious meaning. There are smart people in the PRT so some would maybe suspect something but we would never give them reason to.However Janissary is a lot more direct. There are less ways obvious or cultural understandings of that name to be misunderstood.
>>3314009>>3314007>>3314006>>3314003>>3314000>>3313996>>3313994>>3313991Wew anon, it looks like you did my job for meSo it looks like >Monte-Cristoand>Somekind of a heroic mad scientistwins unless I'm retarded, writingFor those curious, I would have made you guys roll if you choose Janissary since well... having a name inspired or taken from slave soldiers isn't exactly great looking
>>3314021Mate, you've actually convinced me.Changing my vote, specifically from >>3314007 to Janissary.
>>3314025Or maybe most of them never read books or have ever been to a theater, so them will only think of the snack, which is what we want.The uncultured fools! MUAHAHAHHA!
>>3314027>>3314028AAAAAAAAFuck it>Monte Cristo>JanissaryChoose one, I'll close vote after 30 minutes
>>3314028I kind a wanted Monte-Cristo (still sort of do), but the main thing is we didn't fight it or go to court or go to jail. At least shove us in jail for even a day and I would be more for the name.
>>3314027and now we have a name that sound regal but is a snack sandwich and thats is pretty hilarious >>3314028sorry mate it looks like you where to latealso pic related what you guys think about making a chef robot that can also prepare the specific Monte-Cristo sandwiches
>>3314027Run off vote?
>>3314033well we are kind of imprisoned with a tracking armband that will tranq the shit out of us if we try to escape or take it off
>>3314032>Monte-CristoWasn't it our PHO nickname?
>>3314032I choose janissary and if the roll for letting us keep it fail just put Monte Cristo, no need to make this longer that it should be
>>3314032I think I just make your life harder by being around honestly, lol.>>3314037Totally on the list. Maybe a robotwaifubodycookinghomemakerguard.>>3314045Well.... eh.... I already changed from 1 vote to another, and I made an argument for both... and for changing. I don't think I should keep bouncing back and forth.
>>3314051yep if i remember right
>>3314032JANNIESARYSince we're unpaid
>>3314051Something like that.We also said that to Assault before we fought him.
>>3314037That would be very cool, and also would let us stay in our room more time of the day without the need to socialize in the cafeteria
>>3314053so you are not going to change your vote for what you want because it would be impolite or something?
>>3314027>having a name inspired or taken from slave soldiers isn't exactly great lookingThis can go both ways. We would look bad to the PRT but if we gain fame, and people ask them about the reason for our name, and we tell them publicly. Well now who would that hurt more? Our image or the PRTs?
the reason why i dont want JANNIESARYit reminds me of janitor and it feels weird having a turk name and i really like monte for some silly and serious reasons like our PHO name the sandwiches and our imprisonment and i dont think they are going to accept the name of a slave soldier in the pr department and with monte cristo we still follow the imprisonment part of the history behind that name
>>3314061Well I picked Monte Cristo first because Janissary wasn't on the list and trying to put a unofficial name on the list is a pain in the ass, and could result in wasting my vote. It was also partly in competition at the start with other names like Eureka, so voting for a "3rd party" at the time was silly. I did not expect any of the surges in votes and agreement. Also it makes me look like a trolling douche, since I am a sort of defacto advocate for this name change.Janissary =/= JanitorJanis =/= Jannie or JannyOnly if you get it wrong on purpose.Names that may look or sound similar can mean total different things.
>>3314027Voting Janissary>>3314061>>3314068I think Akira mention we MAY have to do a dice roll for it, so it might even still fail. In which case if it does we will undoubtedly go for Monte Cristo.
>>3314077Like Clockblocker and Cockblocker
>>3314032Monte Cristo, my dude
this talk of monete cristo sandwiches actually made me hungry and if we take monte cristo we get the verified cape tag on our account or a second account
>>3314053we could name it Valentine
>>3314032>JanissaryI doubt they'll look too much farther than 'old timey soldier'
>>3314090If Janissary fails...In another timeline we call ourselves Janissary because Coil press ganged us to work for him, and it turns up leading him down to a early grave so he closed that timeline down fairly quickly.
>>3314098True, most of the people their look fairly uncultured and we can put on an assassins creed look or spin to it.I will say tho, there is a good chance this won't get accepted by the guy we are talking to right now. They filter out names like this intentionally so there won't be embarrassing PR snafus..... like the one I'm planning.....
Looks like >JanissaryWins it, roll me some 1d20-2s to see if you can pull a clockblocker, best out of threeDC is 17
>>3314099Not really how Coil's power works.Also he doesn't really care.
>>3314093or was it Mercedes or something?

>>3314121I'm fine with this, we tried for that name, but we just so happen to have a backup name. Not our fault we couldn't choose that name, we have a realistic and reasonable reason to not go with Janissary now.>>3314111Felling better there now big guy?
>>3314151i was not feeling bad earlier or anything i just cant remember the name of the lover of the count of monte cristo
>>3314154Don't worry about it, I've never seen, read or heard of the book, movie, musical, or snack, until i looked it up today.
>>3314160i would recommend doing it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwuz-_9hcaY&list=PL92Tqf8J-McT1etnC95AfbCeysJIbjfDx&index=1there has been references of this in popular media like family guy the Simpsons and much more if i remember right
>>3314169if you follow the link and open it on its own you will get the playlist
>>3314182Fooking spoiler it dickwad, now I don't want to watch it.
>>3314190How do you spoiler?
>>3314182dont explain the plot but i must agree it was one of a kind
>>3314191press control+Sor type it out with  inbetween each wordspoiler/spoilerType like this monte burns is a not a fag like smithersbut the last part you put a / like for the end.
>>3314196Sorry about thatlike this?
>>3314200Well atleast the future anons won't be spoiled, but now i've learned of my mistakes and put spoilers like this
so this is how you do it easily nice >>3314201no problem
*blocks your path*
>>3314182This, plus the musical has some god damn good music. "A story told", "Hell to your doorstep" and ""https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG-_yG-n8Yg>>3314190Hey man, I can promise you, even knowing the outcome of the story you'll probably like it. The fact remains that there is something cathartic in watching it play out. What was the spoiler I missed?
>>3314225good then dont read or scroll upalso a story told is a fav of mine
Don't forget about the anime version. It's written an directed to be more like the original manuscript than how the original novel was eventually published. If you're really into the book you owe it to yourself to give Gankutsuou a try
>>3314225I didn't know how to spoiler text. so i just told the movie plot and ending so he doesn't want to watch it now>>3314190I seriusly recomend watching it, even knowing the ending its a damn good movie, also i didn't explain WHY he wanted revenge or his journey to accomplish said revenge
>>3314265i also did not know how to spoiler been years here and no one has explained it before " type it out with  inbetween each wordspoiler/spoiler" except this explanation
>>3314272You can also spoiler images, click the spoiler button on your post reply window, its a checkmark box.Now I gtg for a bit... brb in a few hours....
>>3314276see you later and spoiler images is like the one thing i knew before how to spoiler
>>3313793Pondering the subject of names, you come up with a pretty cheeky one. Smirking, you can only hope they're dumb enough to accept it."For a name, what about Janissary?""Jannissary? The fuck's a Janissary? Someone look up what a damn Janissary is!"For a few moments of silence, you can hear several workers typing on their keyboards hastily"Uh, sir... it's some kind of... Turkish slave-soldier?""Slave soldier!? That's big no, you know how the news like to tear us apart for every little thing, I can already imagine the headlines! New 'Slave-Solider' on the scene! Goddamn, that'd be worse than Clockblocker."Letting out a sigh of disappointment, you consider your options before choosing your second favorite."Monte-Cristo?""More foreign gibberish, huh!? Someone look up 'Monte-Cristo'!"Again, you hear clatterings of keyboards on repeat."It's... some kind of Sandwich?""Alright, that's a better start. Has it been used?""Uhm... No, not at all.""Good, good. Now we're cooking, we have an actual name to base something around. Any ideas for the 'costume' part?""Hm... I was thinking of going for a 'heroic mad scientist' kind of vibe, maybe I could have an armored lab-coat?"Writing this down on a notepad, the man stays quiet for a few moments before responding"We could probably do that. There's still the issue of a mask. we have plenty of spares in storage for the short term, although... if you want, I'll let you make your own mask. Just for the love of god don't go overboard, for all of us."Nodding, you've found yourself more or less satisfied with this arrangement."Mr.Schmidt, it's about time we leave. The walk to the Parahumans Science branch is a bit long, so I'd like to start it already.""Sure... It was nice meeting you, Mr...?""Jameson, Branch leader of Public Relations. Nice talking to you, Monte-Cristo. I hope for both of our sakes that you don't come back here often."Somewhat confused, you leave the building with a real cape identity.
>>3314305just so we have some basic clothing and a mask when we are out side we get on a armor
>>3314295Ah, we got lucky. Glenn would've ripped us a new one.
Also, seeing as they aren't letting us have any P.A, at least any time soon, we're going to need to change up our plans a bit in terms of combat and stuff.I think we should build ourselves into a speedster-blaster: if we can make even a basic jet-pack then that grants us sufficient mobility to avoid getting tied down against most foes; in combination with our fairly powerful stunning energy weapons and a bit of light armour we're a hard hitting non-lethal foe that can realistically avoid anyone without flight or teleportation while still being tanky enough to take the occasional bullet or knife.
>>3314353Char aesthetic is the best
>>3314295if its a labcoat why not something like this for the basic design?
>>3314408oh i am liking it and pic related can be our casual lab coat
Rolled 11, 18, 15 = 44 (3d20)nearly forgot to roll for the PRT's perception.
>>3314408This plus a mask like pic
>>3314423what you think about having a suit under the lab coat?
>>3314439ignore the handle but what you think of rest of the suit?
>>3314439>>3314423I was thinking why not use some light armor under our labcoat, not making the labcoat armored, but using actual armor under our labcoat, we later on could make some light power armor and it would just look like we are a very muscular dude with a helment in a labcoat
>>3314469Oh hell yes, supporting
>>3314418Can we get our gym equipment back? We cannot let our physique languish in this golden cage now can we.... Plus, that equipment wasn't hurting anyone or doing anything that could possibly be bad, right?
>>3314489We definitively should mention this to the tech aproval guys it's just some modular exercise machines, theres nothing dangerous about them unless you are a dork and hurt yourself using them
>>3314418/fa/scist aura is aesthetic
how about a suit of armor with hand, feet and backpack boosters that can lock up and we use the momentum and speed to plow into people really hard and fast?,
>>3314591>Implying thats gonna do something against moskt capes>impliying we don't need a fuck-ton of impact absorbers or a brute rating to survive that shit
>>3314621just a suggestion. we could burn people withe the thrusters.its either that or try and become a discount batman, and use the gadgets already available, and maybe improve them a bit.
>>3314660burning with the thrusters sounds somewhat impractical, and i don't even know where to start with the batman idea, we could make gadgets sure but we need to learn how to use them effectively, also we barely are starting our way to fitness, it would be some months till we are in TOP shape unless we use tinker grade steroids, also i prefer to be something more focused for mid and long range combat and CC, also remember we are suposed to be Hero's now
>>3314295https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoB5Dem7P28PARAHUMAN TEST #10067, CONDUCTED BY HEAD RESEARCHER JAMEY REECESUBJECT: MONTE-CRISTOTEST STARTED WAS STARTED AT 4/29/11 BEGAN 13:35, ENDED 16:23MONTE-CRISTO CLAIMED TO BE A TINKER, EVIDENCE GROUP #A THAT WAS DISCOVERED BY PRT OPERATIVES PROVED THIS WITHOUT DOUBT.WHEN ASKED WHAT HIS SPECIALTY WAS, SUBJECT STATED THAT HE WASN'T SURE. MADE A VAGUE GUESS THAT IT WAS COMBAT RELATED.SUBJECT WAS SHOWN BLUEPRINTS HE MADE, CLAIMED HE COULD ONLY MAKE THEM AFTER HE CREATED SOMETHING (UNCONTESTED)WHEN ASKED TO CREATE SOMETHING WITH A SMALL NUMBER OF PARTS, SUBJECT MADE A 'BAREBONES' RAYGUN (SEE EVIDENCE GROUP #B)TESTING OF SAID RAYGUN SHOWED THAT THE WEAPON HAD THE POTENTIAL TO BLOW OFF A DOOR. FURTHER TESTING REVEALED THAT THE WEAPON HAS A SHORT COOLING PERIOD AFTER EVERY SHOT, AND HAD A 1/6 CHANCE OF FIRING.SUBJECT COMMENTED THAT HE MADE IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS DESIGN VIA REDUCING THE LETHALITY. THIS SEEMS TO LINE UP WITH A BLUEPRINT FOUND (SEE #A)WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT HOW WELDER (SEE #A) WAS POWERED, SUBJECT DODGED THE QUESTION STATING 'HE WASN'T SURE'. EARLIER RESEARCH ON THE DEVICE IN QUESTION SHOWED THAT ELECTRICITY WAS SUPPLIED VIA A BATTERY OF SOME SORT.WHEN SHOWED THE 'BATTERY' SUBJECT CHANGED HIS CLAIM, STATING THAT IT WAS SOME KIND OF KINETIC POWER SUPPLY (UNCONTESTED) REPEATING THIS PROCESS, IN SHORT, SUBJECT CLAIMED THAT: THE LASER RIFLE WAS SIMILAR IN DESIGN, ALTHOUGH IT USED A MUCH MORE 'NEUTERED' DESIGN. THE SHOTGUN FOUND WAS APPARENTLY A MODIFIED MOSSBERG 500 (PROVEN)CONCLUSIONWHILE THE SUBJECT'S EXACT FIELD IS UNKNOWN, WE CAN SAY WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT, AT THE VERY LEAST, IT CAN BE USED TO CREATE COMBAT RELATED ITEMS. TESTING ON ITEMs 'P.A' AND 'A.W.G' ARE STILL CURRENTLY IN THEIR INFANCY STAGES, AND WE CAN EXPECT TO HEAR SUFFICIENT RESULTS NEXT WEEK. SOON BEFORE THIS TEST WAS CONDUCTED, WE RECEIVED A REPORT FROM WEDGDG STATING THAT APPRAIZER RATED THE SUBJECT A 'YELLOW', MEANWHILE ELEVENTH HOUR HAD GIVEN HIM A 'SEVEN'. ELEVENTH'S RATING IS PARTICULARLY ALARMING, AND WE WILL KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE INVOLVED. FURTHERMORE, WE WILL REQUEST THE ASSISTANCE OF WEDGDG's THINKERS REGARDING ANY ISSUES WE MAY FIND IMPORTANT MOVING FORWARD. I FEEL IT'S NECESSARY TO RATE MONTE-CRISTO AS A TINKER 6 (BRUTE 4?/MOVER 3?/SHAKER AND BLASTER 4?) FOR NOW. THESE RATINGS WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY CHANGE OVER TIME AS WE EVALUATE THE DATA.
>>3314691use what is readily available they issue the heroes and maybe tinker with them to improve the standard issue stuff a little.
>>3314749Stopping for the day, during next week I'll be updating much more slowly, at best once or twice a day until the weekend due to work, sorry lads
>>3314761so are we considered a high threat?
>>3314762We have the potential to be a high threat, given anyone with a combat focus tinker skill can in theory create deadly weapons capable of harming supers, that can in turn be given to normal people.We are a force multiplier. For them, not useful given they are the supers but if we worked for a gang or were otherwise against them, then we'd be a fairly large threat.
>>3314762Hm, somewhat. Eleventh's hour rating really turned their gears since he usually rates endbringer fights an 8, if I recall correctly.
>>3314691>using steroids>not relying on our superior Aryan geneticsFor shame anon, for shame. I shame you!>>3314757The last time we was working out we critted. QM said we were half way to something, but I don't recall what. Improving the gym equipment sounds like a great idea.>>3314762Almost any Tinker can be considered a high thread if they have the time and resources.
>>3315194Not all tinkers are equally as dangerous, Leet and Kid Win aren't very dangerous even with a ton of time and resources at their dissposal, for example due to Leet not taking risks and the nature of his power he can't improve or reuse his designs reliably and in Kid Win's case he can't focus his power very well due to pre-trigger mental problems, on the other hand theres peoplé like String Theory whose speciality is Doomsday devices... so not all Tinkers have the same potential
>>3315314Didn't Kid Win make that super death laser thing?
>>3315314You mean the one that desintegrated Genesis projection in cannon?That was because the projection was made from weird power energy otherwise it would just stun people if i remember right
You know we could try to go for a Quicksilver coated mask that can reform itself into another face after we have the features done, so that would be a cool trick.Especially if we do not mention it to the PRT and do not use it.It will look like a featureless , smooth silver liquid mask, waiting to pull a T-1000/ T-X with its totally not pseudoliquid necrodermis.
>>3314762If they figgure out we can produce anything with blueprints and leave said blueprints around it pretty much makes us the golden ticket of mass production tinkery, as it allows one to translate from the madscientist super who builds a few toys that are inexplicable to the plebs to madscientist super who leaves monkey see monkey do instruction list they can follow for production and maintenence.Sure they probably wont understand a tenth of the science involved, but if you get a fuck ton greater results of mass production and maintenance of tinkerteck by acting like the Cult Mechanicus....Yeah, we are a fucking high level threat, but only if we manage to get to the leadership of a organisation we approve and where we are interested in handing over blueprints.At this level of basic tinker gear they probably wont be all that awed if they can replicate them by our blueprints, since they can explain it away as a tinker trying to figgure out what he did in tinkerfugue and somehow being still understandable at such a low level, and not that the STC/idiot proof blueprint instruction is part of the process.As soon as they figure that one out we are never leaving PRT 'employment'I am pretty sure they will even consider having us wear a KBC vest. (Kill Before Capture), as the one who gets a tinker that can pump out designs that don't need a tinker to handhold the plebs in producing or manufacturing can create a ton of tinkertech soldiers.So yeah, we are in String Theory level of type of treatment once they figure out how our tinker powers tick. Thus if we want to leave we are on the clock.Leviathan would probably be a good point to just fuck off and fake our death, then dip into biotech and alter our DNA/RNA and any other identifying features, as well as uploading our blueprints on the net as the final fuck you to the PRT/Gift to the world when we 'die', so anyone will use our current deathray gun and multitool, and any other stuff we can not hide/ have to make. So think impractical over-expensive boondoggle that are only good as a one off prototype, or fancy modification on existing shit, that one could do without and is only nice to have.Or something so basic to our work that we want to proliferate a lot so we can use as components or precursors, when we return with a new name and face.
>>3314749Finishing your meal, you place the dirty plate away from your keyboard. Luckily, after getting questioned endlessly by those nosy researchers you managed to not only leave by yourself but bring food along on the way back to your... Apartment? Living Quarters? Regardless of the proper term, you've managed to secure yourself some personal time. Sadly, you have to wait a day for your order of materials to come through, so you can't tinker. Sulking, you consider your options for the day. You've still yet to mess around with PHO, and if you're lucky you may, JUST may get the opportunity to shitpost under a real verified cape name. On the other hand, you could do something more productive with your time.

We could try building a blueprint in our mind and try to memorize it.So we do some tinkering under a bit harder situations but with not rail for the assholes.Some sensor so we can detect all bugs, transmitters and if possible circuitry.Something to integrate in our helm so we know when we are not watched.
>>3318277Photographic memory huh?>>3317890Does Hermann have photo graphic memory?
>>3318336Don't think so, but a cyber surgery to get us one might just be the trick to do.If we could get Panacea to install it by say making some med gear that saves enough hours and stipulate a exchange for her time, slot in a vacation before the procedure to get her to 100%That would be just the thing we might need to allow us to decide what we take as our private property when we leave.That would be a thing to do. Win-win for all involved and a nice future loss for the PRT.But for now I say we hard ball it and train our mind. To design and memorize and then recall. Twice the dice rolls to get right for the same design but greater security. Until we get a perfect memory solution and advanced recall.
>>3318336If we know some basic biotinkering and research some cybernetics i'm sure we could just put a chip in our head that interfaces with our brain and gives us perfect memory
>>3318354what's with the reddit double space posting?>If we could get Panacea to install itI have my doubts that Panacea would help with such a delicate procedure what with how afraid she is of performing any kind of surgery relating to anyone's brain.>>3318364Here's hoping we are able to perform some biotinkering. Also a shame the PRT will get the intellectual property of our designs.
>>3318354>If we could get Panacea to install it Theres the problem Panace can interact with brains just fine, but she doesn't do it because she doesn't trust herself with said power and personally i think she was right knowing what she did to her sister in cannon
>>3318370>>3318371No need to interact with the brain, just plug the cyberware in.Panacea implantation surgery would require no post-op, leave no scars and risk no complications.Basically contract her for getting the cyberware to say, the brainstem and have a automated hookup at the plug-in to have no need for any parahuman power or doc to fiddle with it.
>>3319742>No need to interact with the brain> the brainstemAnything related to the mind or memorization will be part of the brain bucko, and Panacea is strongly against all brain related activity.>just plug the cyberware in.Like into a power outlet?
>>3319758What, you mean you don't have a brainware socket? What rock have you been living under?
>>3319758Its going to need some fancy control to go in our brain, but if we have our brainscanes we could program in a hookup.Placing it in the brain would be way to risky if it gets jostled by trauma. under the brainpan, hooked to the stem and then burrowing up with very well guided mobile extending wire tubes would be a lot safer, especially if they have a hardness and density in the same weight class as the rest of the brain components.Panacea could suppress any pain issue and we could guide it in, supervised by a neurosurgeon of course, so we have someone to quiz about any irregularities that might happen and panacea would be uncomfortable messing with.without some very very fancy miniaturized technology like micro or nanobots i am not all that keen on going for a hard implant in the brain, since the only option would be a net right over or perhaps under the dura mater. but that shit is imho way to risky with us as a testcase.Way more comfy with a hardcase box right under the brainpan with tubes through the stem.
>>3319758>>3319897Let's do a LOT of experimenting on animals and people nobody will miss before we touch ourself. Hermann needs to level up biotinkering or he'll get a rusty, explosive, seizure-inducing implant in his brain.
>>3320102>Degenerative neurological disorders like AshkenazimKek
>>3318336>Does Hermann have photographic memory?Technically, no. While he DOES have improved memory, it's not good enough to be classed as PhotographicWhile I'm here, I've decided to explain blueprints a bit more clearly.A normal person couldn't copy what you've made/written, although if they were an expert in their field and the device was in that field, they'd have a 1/1000 chance of getting it right. Most, if not all tinkers could more or less reconstruct what you've done if given the blueprints, although how successful they would be depends on their field. Anyhow, resuming writing
>>3320102>>3320107A kekworthy idea, but I feel that we'll have to be careful or we might make a new supervillain mouse.Maybe one of the capes in our league of evil can be a mouse that was dropped into a tank of brain smartness juice.
Wasn't there a bunch of posts of QM being banned? What happened? Did the thread reset?

>>3321592Could be worse. Could be SV.
>>3317890After a minute or two of quiet thinking, you decide it's smarter to try exploring your new home. Grabbing a leather jacket, you leave your room slightly optimistic.Starting from the very top, you climb up some annoyingly high stairs until you reach a mundane looking door. Opening it up, you find a helipad...? Cautiously, you crouch down near one of the edges and try taking it all in. Looking down, you can feel yourself sweating when there's a large distance between you and the floor. Changing your glance, you stare at the coastline with a bittersweet smile. You remember being pretty awed by the rig in your early years. You could say, for better or worse, you're living the dream life. Snorting, you lazily get up, didn't you come here to explore...?Walking back down, you opt to give the entire building a quick look. There is, of course, the 'apartments' around your floor. surprisingly, however, there's more to it than meets the eye. Snooping around, you notice a few things. First off, a completely unremarkable classroom lies between a few offices. Peering in, you see something more akin to a university class design wise. Poking your head around, you see several chaotic offices packed with stress-filled middle-aged workers.Moving down a floor, you think you find the proper 'training' area. There's a traditional firing range, coupled with a manned armory. The quartermaster in question gives you really disapproving look as he notices you wandering about, reacting, you awkwardly leave his sight slightly flustered.Casually walking back up, you're abruptly stopped by two lone guards."A certain someone from Watchdog would like to speak with you, Mr. Schmidt."Instantly, your mind begins to panic. Gaining Watchdog's attention is a pretty bad thing from what you can imagine, don't they deal with politics and masterminds...?"Uh... why...?""We can't go into the details, but let's just say we believe you might hold valuable information. Additionally, this is not mandatory. But, if you scratch our backs, we may scratch yours, if you catch our drift."Sure, I'll do itI refuse
>>3322640Apologies about the wait, IRL stuff bogged me down. Rest assured I will be running normally next weekend
>>3322613Absolutely disgusting, but you're right.>>3322640>"Uh huh. Who is this someone?">"Sure, why not?"Watchdog as an organization isn't something most Wormverse stuff tends to explore. Let's see where this goes...
>>3322640>Sure, I'll do itCan't hurt to listen to what they have to say
>>3322640Is there any significance to the colored texts QM? Is it a morality system, like paragon, renegade?
>>3322672Supporting, we just want a quiet life
>>3322640>Sure, I'll do itWe can always not answer what they're asking if we don't want to.
>>3322640Sure, I'll do itBut on some conditions.I want gimme your pants. I don't know if he'll go for it but I want to see if he will.
>>3322640>Sure, I'll do itwhat could go wrong?
>>3322684Brain fart. It's supposed to be "gimme your pants." I just want to getvstupid shit from them.
>>3322640>I refuseSimply choosing for the green since that's our voice color
>>3322666Not exactly a morality system, but if you're offered to do something more heroic or 'good' then it'll be blue, green is just neutral actions, and red is more 'EVVILLL' ish.
>>3322699Will we get the opportunity to "I've had enough of your disingenuous assertions" somebody?
>>3322699Thank you for clarifying
>>3322704if you go down a certain route with a certain autist, then yes
>>3322640>I refuseGuys can this wait? I'm trying to get my bearings here. I'll stop by tomorrow or at the end of the week if that's okay.
>>3322640>I refuseWe've got other shit to do
>>3322710Hey can we go shitpost on PHO Akire?
>>3322736with what ? the infographics?
>>3322738Wtf do you mean with what did they take our computer too?
Why didn't we make our cape name Infographic?It would fit with our making blueprints and nobody would have realised.
>But, if you scratch our backs, we may scratch yours, if you catch our drift."Whats some of your reasons to refuse?
>>3322765Not wanting to get involved in polilitcal games and cape intrigue for starters
>>3322765Because despite the meme of destroying the PRT from within, what most people forget is that getting close with them is a two-way street. With repeated interactions the character will inevitably start bonding with the enemy to the point where they'll no longer be considered an enemy in the characters mind. Same thing happens with the player base.To cut it short, I want as few interactions as possible with them, do our job, get out, and unleash our UBER-TECH to demolish them.
>>3322787But I like the PRT and the E88 are fucking retards and are also doomed to fail.
>>3322765Cause mostly FUCK THE PRT, but more becuase we just got cuaght and wouldn't trust anyone at all.
>>3322791Oh right and unironically trying to destroy them and getting anywhere near succeeding gets Dragon and the Triumvirate on our asses and we will fucking die
>>3322787Pretty much this, Hermann is a somewhat of a /pol/ac but he still has empathy, and no matter how shit are the people of the PRT they are still people and we don't want hermann or the playerbase to empatize too much with them and start seeing some of the heroes as bros or Dice forbid, the female heroes as potential love interests/waifus
>>3322738That would be beautiful.
>>3322808It's too late anon, they are all waifus now.
>>3322791Then WHY THE FUCK are you in a thread called REICH AND FRIENDS?
>>3322640>Sure, I'll do itWhy everyone voting against this? This would be giving us some much-needed influence to get out of here and we need to act like a good boy up until we're the worst boy.
>>3322819Imagine if you had some crazy superpowers and could build whatever the hell you wanted, managed to get a gig where you could do so reasonably innocuously, and then a buncha chinks and bullshit lawmen ruined it all? Would be absolute bully.
>>3322814Jesus calm down, I'm just saying in universe the E88 is doomed to fail because Kaiser dies in like whattwo weeks, and we're in no position to help him outside of using meta knowledgePRT are incompetent. Perhaps I should have said I like some of the people who work for them.I'd much rather start an independent faction.
>>3322795Thats the problem with cape intrigue, too much shit people and masterminds in the background, the Triumvirate we could deal with appealing to their superiors, by figuratively selling our soul to cauldron by demostrating that we are an irregular cape, aka a cape with less restrictions than others and we could deal with Dragon simply by buying the Dragonslayers services like tattletale did in cannon
>>3322829E88 is probably still our best option. Ideologically they line right up with Hermann, and they have the numbers and resources (for now) to help him achieve his goal of building a Nazi moon colony or whatever. Possibly a mars colony.
>>3322765I want to do it later, and that's a shit deal, do this for us, and we MIGHT reciprocate. Yeah its like saying give me 5 bucks now, and I MAY give you 5 bucks worth of candy later.
>>3322852Why no Venus colony? That;s were all the Aryan babes are at!
>>3322857Right? I’m not even sure what Hermann could possibly know that they would want. And I’m skeptical of the vague offer. If they want anything from Hermann they better come in with something concrete. Preferably notarized and in writing.
>>3322829In my opinion we should unite with the purity faction after the fall of E88 tough that will bring his own problems, principally because fog and night are agents of Gesellschaft , i like the Fenrir sons because they are somewhat strong but they also are a perfect example of how the world sees Nazis and white supremasists, a bunch of Blood knights and psychotic battle junkies with a deep seated hatred and disdain for those that arent part of the supreme master race
>>3322814But aren't the E88 a bunch of retards?
>>3322869>Implying that Hermann couldn’t keep them in line, and harness their rage towards productive purposes. Plus the hatred is justified when you consider how much destruction the jüden have wrought upon humanity, or the blind, unthinking savagery of the feral negroids and mohammedans.
>>3322872Yes, most of them are and those that aren't a bunch of bloodthirsty retards are up to the neck in cape intrigue and politics
>>3322852I still don't remember why we didn't join the e88 in the beginning and start already with resources and a "safe powerbase"
>>3322829If we start an independent faction will we have someone else as our leader? I would like to continue building tech and would rather not get directly involved in running one.
>>3322872Think of what they could be and what they could accomplish with Hermann guiding them. Whether steering Kaiser from an advisory role and staying out of the spotlight, or as the outright leader.
>>3322880Some anons wanted to have power armor already built or something to prove to the E88 that we weren’t scrubs and shit. IDK why that’s a big deal, the E88 would LOVE to have a tinker, especially one like Hermann.
>>3322876Yeah but most of the problem stems from the fact that at least in cannon they aren't a bunch of angry and dangerous national socialists but a bunch of cartoon-like nazis, with everything bad (((they))) say being mostly true atleast cannonically, so unless Akire makes them less crazy supervillain-like i don't want to interact with them
>>3322894well the canon story was written by the author by the eyes of Taylor ( (( they)) may have poisoned her views on the world)is Herbert one of (((them)))
>>3322905maybe just maybe she wasn't the reliable narrator she seems like
>>3322894In canon we only know E88 from Taylor's skewed perspective and the interlude from Purity, and later one from Theo. Theo's only touched upon E88 tangentially.All three had extreme biases and are far from reliable. We never saw what the e88 capes talked about when they planned their side of the war and let's be honest, every time Taylor confronted someone capes went apeshit because holy shit spiders and cockroaches crawling into your lungs is fucking nasty. Plus whenever they did something, it was them against the world, it's not surprising that they'd go to extreme lengths to win their battles.Their actual philosophy and thought process were never touched upon, probably because wildbow didn't want to alienate his socjus audience by having nazis as anything other than crazy, mouthbreathing antagonists. Purity got a pass because she got woke and only cared about her itty bitty baby and Theo got a pass because he had an identity crisis and ended up on the right side of history.
>>3322958I think the main problem stems from the fact that wildbow didn't want to alienate his audience as you said or bring hate to his history by adding sympatetic natsoc's, he also said in a comment to anybody that want's to start a story to avoid politics and religion like the fire, so thats why the political aspects of the story revolves more around cape-politics than cape affected politics, also if we follow an unaltered cannon with hermann as the only foreing insert, in the Number Man interlude Gesellschaft was said to do shaddy dealing with arms dealers, specifically nuclear materials and in his interlude Crusader refered to them as a Neo-Nazi organization, and seing their wiki entry i think we can acertain that they are indeed neo nazis villains and not National Socialists Rogue-villains
>>3322650>>3322660>>3322681>>3322684>>3322688>>3322817>Sure, I'll do it>>3322672>>3322676>>3322679>>3322698>>3322708>>3322718>>3322734>>3322822>I REFUSE6:8Refusing is winning so far, I'll leave the vote open until tomorrow
>>3323058Just call it dude, 4 hours is good enough
>>3323067Eh, I won't have enough time to properly write an update today, So I may as well leave it for tomorrow. Sorry anon, I can't stay up late due to work.
>>3323080You can call it and just start coming up with ideas though akire. Leaving a vote open for a day usually results in samefagging. and I'd say that even if my option lost.
>>3322819To be fair they didn't exactly try stalk us. They suspected us and set up cameras. And at the end of the year we will be payed more than we ever would have been working in that junkyard (28k total at the end of the year).>>3322822Why not? We could make some connects with some power players for our own benefit.>>3322852What if we form our own faction after the Kaiser kicks the bucket? We'll have our pick of what is left.>>3322857You make a fair point, but I kinda want to know what they think we know? Because if we know something important than I want to know what it is they know about us. If that made any sense.>>3322859>Not building a n orbital launcher to send automated drones to Mars or the Moon to build a space colony>Not Iron Sky 22: Electric BoogalooYou sir have poor taste. Say, who was that one anon who posted the Mechanicus trooper guy? Maybe we could do that. Build our own faction on Mars in secret.
>>3323080Call it so you can spend your time thinking what to write instead. The longer you let a vote drag on the more you'll see people trying to cheat the vote, four hours is already very generous
>>3323099Venus is warmer, more solar power.
>>3323113....I won't say you're wrong. It could be something to work towards at least. How about we start with the moon, then work our way up to Mars, then we work on Venus last?
>>3323113>>3323118Doesn't matter, QM says something is blocking space/time travel.
>>3323124He's right. I don't remember when or where but akire said he'd be disallowing space and time travel. It's not consistent with the setting.
>>3323118Sure, But Earths moon is definitely first. So long as we get Venus and and some of the other moons later.
>>3323133Well darn. So much for space colonies.
>>3323124It was posted somewhere, but in cannon all tinkers except Masamune(because that's his speciality) can't mass produce their devices or make space-faring tinker veicles/devices, this is principaly a safeward made by the entities to prevent the shard holders to travel to a non-observable or otherwise inacsesible distance from earth, also im not too sure but i think after a certain distance from the planet earth the shards stop working
>>3323133Time travel I can understand Fuck you Coil you cheating bastered!But no space travel? That sucks!
>>3323143>i think after a certain distance from the planet earth the shards stop workingOnly one way to find out.
>>3323139The limitation affects ALL space-faring attemps, wildbow(the original story autor) even said that sphere/manequin original plans for a moon colony where destined to fail from the start
>>3323143What about orbital satellites?>but i think after a certain distance from the planet earth the shards stop workingWe could put this to the test and build some sort of super Railgun (or that MAC cannon thing in Halo) and try firing a drone to the moon.>>3323153what were sphere/manequin's plans though?
>>3323157From the wiki:He gained fame and attention as his power allowed to take up "a project to build self sustaining biospheres on the moon." It is stated that "he had ideas on solving world hunger, and building aquatic cities near cities plagued by overcrowding." Sphere was attempting to get all of that off the ground when The Simurgh attacked the site he was living in.In the Simurgh attack, his wife and childred were killed, and the years of work he'd done to help fix the problems of the world were ruined. Alan went mad and shut himself off from the world.Literally. Sphere withdrew, crafting a self-contained ecosystem in which he could survive indefinitely, untouchable, unreachable and safe. Sphere emerged under the new name of 'Mannequin'.This is basically his story up to how he became the derranged serial killer Mannequin
>>3323178I wonder how Mannequin in the Wendigo quest is taking it after killing the Simurph.
>>3323157About the satelite idea idk, Tinkers have more in common with artificing mages, than the standar gadgeter genius of super-hero story's, they are in fact low-key reality warpers that imbue pasively some type of energy in their tech and thats why they have do constant maintenance to their tech despite the logic saying that it shouldn't that hard for tinkers to make self-sustaining/self-repairing devices
>>3323183Maybe jack killed him due to a emotional breakdown that made him more a liability than an asset
>>3323143We have the ability to make blueprints. Does that mean our tech is also replicable as long the blueprints exist?
>>3323374Yes, but only by other tinkers and with a tiny chance by experts in that field of creation
>>3323374>>3323377>A normal person couldn't copy what you've made/written, although if they were an expert in their field and the device was in that field, they'd have a 1/1000 chance of getting it right. Most, if not all tinkers could more or less reconstruct what you've done if given the blueprints, although how successful they would be depends on their field.
>>3323377>>3323396Thank you both.>>3323377Nice trips
>>3323396I want to play a quest about a super genius, non-tinker inventer who has to deal with smug tinker assholes who think they're better than him.
>>3323472Well, unless that genius triggers, they will be better than him anon.Inadequacy: The Quest
>>3323497But what if you decide to fuck logic and are still on par with the cheating assholes despite only using human brain.
>>3323542Then you've broken the setting and created something to the equivalent of a mary sue.
>>3323553It would be the equivalent of a regular Guardsman having the stats of a Space Marine.
>>3323558So you'd be Sly Marbo then?
>>3323565Sly Marbo, while awesome, is more like a light eversor assassin than a Space Marine.
>>3323497>>3323553Sure, he won't be the best. But I'm thinking this; He was alive and making things before capeshit even happened, and he's booty blasted about these bitch ass capes who put in no effort but attained technical competency higher than he could ever hope for, so he becomes a street level vigilante to show he can compete. He's so intelligent and talented that PRT gives him a Tinker 1 or 2 rating, thinking he has powers.Is it Mary Sue? Yes, but not any more so than, say, wendigo quest. I might actually start this quest, the more that I think about it...
>>3323600Another idea is making it similar to an XCOM quest where you are the head of the R&D department and your job is to reverse engineer Tinker Tech. Of course, with 1/1000 odds of deciphering it, you'll need many, MANY scientists/engineers and high dice rolls to succeed.
>>3323497>>3323600I would like a quest or atleast a story where the MC is in a world with tinkers, gadgeters and shit and hes just some inteligent and perceptive dude and it would be pretty cool if he just used what's avaible to him atm to find how to best munchick powers using comon sense, some Normie science, scaners and detection type supers with repeated testing, basically being a open-minded scientist using the 'if it works don't question too much' approach to reach his own goals
>>3323635Would this work then?>>3323630
>>3323641It sounds interesting tough i had something more akin to a mastermind type of character, even something more in line with a mafia type group/organization
Hmmmmm, what about a non-cape genius human successfully creating a functioning AI which then can snowball because "no shard restrictions fuck you"?Have the AI do the brunt of the thinking.
>>3323681It could be interesting but i feel that the medieval stasis effect is somehow working in worm, basically Tinkers are so good at making ''Tech'' that it discourages non-tinker tech development, because people with money are more willing to pay for research in quick short therm Magi-tech devices than waiting years for a possible technological breakthrough, theres also the fact than in the story theres Contessa, that could shut down any malevolent AI development or creation process easly and also some people are a little worried of what a tinker could gleam from some experimental or dangerous reasearch if he ever get's his hands in it
>>3323701I just think the idea of creating an AI that exponentially grows in intelligence as a true unrestricted AI would do would be fun.>Entities get taken down not by superpowers or bullshit magitech they hand out but because an incredibly buttmad IT technician successfully creates his own AI without using their shard bullshitAlso the AI doesn't necessarily have to be malevolent.
>>3323630I don't think I'd know how to run that.>>3323635That's what I'm thinking.>>3323681I think I would probably do a specialty vote at the beginning, and a specialty in computers and hackershit would get you an upgradeable AI. Iron man shit. What other specialties could I do?
>>3323600He would have had to be doing shit before 1982, that’s when the first capes showed up, just btw
>>3324116Yeah, I was thinking about that. Canon worm is what, 2012? He'd have to be 50+ years old. Might drop that part, doesn't really affect the character.
>>3324604Or it could just be set in the 80’s
>>3323087>>3323108Fair enough, although luckily no-one botheredMy poor OC, I wanted to introduce you. Eh, whatever. You'll still be there, watching the gameboard intently.I REFUSEwins, writing

>>3325317Make some exercise gear.
>>3325325Supporting.>>3325328We already have adaptive workout gear or whatever. The PRT goons are just still examining it. Once they’re done we can get it back.
>>3325317>Start making your maskAt one point I want to make invisible ink that shows up when a vocal command is given just so we can randomly write "Armsmaster sucks" everywhere.
>>3325325This Mask next though
>>3325317>Upgrade the multi tool
>>3325317>Upgrade the multi-toolRemember guys, we need to make a weapon soon, for when we go patrolling.
>>3325420We can just get beat up on patrol and make the PRT think we are a useless idiot. They might start thinking we’re a lower threat and not worth their time and resources.
>>3325433We already beat up several heroes, that won't work.
>>3325437We used our reactor as a makeshift bomb, had power armour which they denied us and had help. So you know could be possible that we actually suck at combat.

>>3325488By exploding our arm in an unfortunate tinkering accident?
>>3325457>>3325459>>3325464OHHHHHH MANNNNNNNNNNNNYou guys really have shit luck. RIP multi-tool, 2011-2011I'll begin writing once I've finished a quick vidya session
>>3325494God dammit. We don’t even have a blueprint for the fucking thing.
We will literally never get to do any cool or fun Nazi stuff. Because we keep critfailing everything. Everybody talking about Kaiser being an idiot needs to look at Hermann lol.
Clearly what we need to do is spend the first month of our time here just making tools and safety equipment. That way we might just avoid our crit-fails for a little while.
>>3325516That's what happens with d20 crit override.
>>3325527Should we consider switching to another system if results remain consistently bad?
>>3325533Nah. This is our own fault for never making a blueprint of the multitool. Plus I think it’ll be a funny and interesting quest to accomplish nothing and get nowhere, and basically do nothing.
>>3325533I mean, I've been saying that since the first thread. I hate the swinginess. It's up to akire.
>>3325559There's a like 1/6th chance of crit failing on every single roll like this.Crit/fail confirming might be helpful.
>>3325567Actually it is precisely a 85.7375% chance to avoid a crit fail if we roll 3d20. To put it another way, we have a 14.2625% chance of a crit fail.
>>3325567>>3325559>>3325552>>3325539>>3325533>>3325527>>3325523>>3325516Hm, I might consider changing to d40's, if that would satisfy you guysI can understand this being somewhat tedious, but whatever
>>3325580Rolling 3d40s with crits on 1, we have a 91.9747% chance of avoiding a crit. That is to say that 8% of the time we will crit fail. Although this isn't taking bonuses or 20s over 1s into account or anything so it's probably closer to 3% or there abouts.
>>3325580Keep it the way it is. I unironically think a quest where we accomplish nothing and do nothing right would be funny. Other people might like it but it fits with the trend of the previous threads lol.
>>3325580This setback will simply encourage us to go BEYOND AN ABOVE AVERAGE MULTITOOL. Even without the blueprints, we have built up experience, I'm sure we can try and recreate it, the PRT is footing the bill.
>>3325641It’s to our benefit if the PRT thinks we are incompetent. I just wished we saved crit fails for things like improving other people’s gear. PRT people.
>>3325317Changing your thoughts to the most obvious, important device you lay the multi-tool on a proper workbench. Grabbing a few tools (Ironic, you know) from wherever Chris tossed them, you start improving the device.>Nat 1For whatever reason, you think the best way to start off would be to disassemble the tool itself and modify the parts directly. After a few screws are loosened you start fiddling around with the inner working of the machine for a good hour or so.Assembling it back together again you start testing it out before it crumbles together in a spectacular fashion. Starting at the random pieces of machinery, you're honestly left broken. Not again...Picking up the salvageable pieces, you try your damndest to reconstruct the bloody thing. There's just one, tiny, minuscule problem however, it's not working! You... just can't! Whenever you try to piece the machine back again, you're just left absentminded! What the hell is going on!?>Multitool Lost. Will require Efficiency, Tier 2 to remakeDespairing, you stare down the pieces of scrap that was once your precious tool.>3 actions remaining >Try to create an offensive weapon (Will offer options once picked)>Start making your mask>Create something non-combat related (write in)>Try messing around with some chemicals, what could go wrong?>Try creating something defensive (Will offer options once picked)>Write in
>>3325700just give up and go to sleep
>>3325700NEET time. Build a gaming rig and distract ourselves from our failure and depression with WoW, Doritos, and Mountain Dew.
>>3325700>start making the mask
>>3325719Why? Hermann is useless and can’t even do anything. Right. But in WoW, maybe he CAN do something right.
>>3325700>Make some sort of scanner device to take a look at the tracker they put on you.We could maybe upgrade it later to export the designs into blueprints or something.
>>3325746Well, by making tinkergear more compact, faster, smaller whatever. Think Armmaster's specialty, it's more or less that. Basically Improving stuff, although it differs by what exactly you're improving>>3325716I don't like being a 'no fun allowed' guy although I'm going to veto this partially if you guys just want to try making a computer however that's fine
Well shit I wonder if those agents knew anything about the Slaughterhouse 9.>>3325700>Try creating something defensive (Will offer options once picked)Light weight collapsible shield, Kind of like what dauntless has but made of materials instead of made of energy.
>>3325815Actually, changing vote to asking if they can bring out our exo-suit so we can continue working on it. If we don't have the current schematics of the exo-suit as it is now then I'd like it if we could do that, then make a duplicate and try to work out where to carefully apply armor to it's frame and possibly make it air tight so it's immune to air born chemicals and diseases.All complete theorized on paper instead of working on it. That way if we crit fail we wont ruin the device, and if we succeed on the schematic it might be easier and faster for us to rebuild it in the future. Win Win.
>>3325580You could also keep the d20 system but make it so crit fails only activate when none of the other rolls pass the DC.>>3325700>>Start making your mask
>>3325848These constant crit fails have severely limited our options throughout the last 3 threads. We are going to end up spending more time trying to mitigate the effects of the crit fails than we are taking initiative to do other things and make progress.
>>3325716>>3325728What's with this defeatism attitude of yours? This is unbecoming of a pure Aryan. You must be some filthy mixed immigrant. Jokes aside it's sad out Multi-tool died. It will be missed.>>3325815Hmmmm. Did the contract say that anything we made would be considered PRT property? Is there a clause in there that would prevent them from owning any blueprints we make or theoretical stuff?>>3325719>>3325740>>3325848So it looks like majority vote is to make the mask. What exactly are we making? Just a plan metal mask? Will it cover only the face? Why not make it a helmet instead since it will only protect the front and not the back? Could we install an air filtration device or some tinker tech night vision lenses? Make it so the mask distorts Hermanns voice?
>>3325815Was the crafting rule that, we have to make the item first before we could make a blueprint of it?
>>3325866It needs to be an SS mask, but disguised enough that PR doesn't notice. And yes, helmet it better.
>>3325866Everything we make is the PRTs property and subject to inspection and testing by them. That’s why a lot of people want to do bio tinkers and use them on ourselves before the PRT guys get around to inspecting them.
>>3325874But then the jaw will be exposed. Plus need to cover the face in case of gas, smoke, or filthy mouth breathers.I got an idea. Why not combine something like this (maybe with less tubes) got another image in a sec...
Alrighty then, mask it isWhat kind of mask do you guys wanna make?>Victorian mask (SEE PICTURE)>>3314353 This>Write inMind you, if you create anything edgy or something dumb like the PRT will flat out say 'no'>>3325866 >Did the contract say that anything we made would be considered PRT property?They reserve the right to take away any tinker gear>>3325868Yes
>>3325890I vote something like this >>3325889Maybe a little less edgy and spooky?
>>3325889....with something like this (the collapsible helmet mechanics not the exact design)>>3325890I mean Blueprints don't count as tinker gear. Right?
>>3325895just change the lenses color to literally anything else, then boom. Not edgy anymore.Not sure how it's edgy exactly. I thought black or grey would be a utilitarian color.
>>3325899It's probably partially the art style. Getting rid of the glowy red eyes thing would help a lot.
>>3325890Could we level up our lawyerism so we can negotiate more to shit in our favor and get a little more freedom?
>>3325890full fucking enclosed helmet.Because we will not be bitches that get got by gas or flash-bangs.
>>3326107Full Face Helmet you say?....
>>3326196ew, no. It's not full if the eyes and mouth are still exposed.
>>3325890Backing >>3325889 but MUCH less edgyWhat >>3326107 said is right: we CANNOT afford to be gassed or flashbanga'd.
So in terms of equipment what are you guys thinking given we aren't allowed to be lethal, and we aren't going to have any P.A to protect us? I want to see where we're headed before I start trying to think of gadgets or inventions that might not fit.
>>3326219Wait they won't let us use PA during patrols? That's kind of backwards. I'd think they would let us have the laser rifle, and the shotgun with beanbags.
>>3326257>*So far, you will only be allowed your Multi-Tool. Everything else is locked away, and will only be used in case of a Class A threat or higher.Quoted from >>3313381, unless we're dealing with some of the highest of the supers, we ain't getting any of our shit back and also:Also some other stuff I noticed>*Inside the drawer in front of you should be a PRT issued phone, this will be your work phone.We should find out if we can modify it without them getting pissed.>*Mandatory therapist sessions will occur every three days.A thing people might not have payed much attention to.
Is there anything in the PRT rules that says we can't use any PRT goon equipment? If it already exists, why don't we get one of their grenade launchers if it can fire canisters of their containment foam? Or make an automatic grenade launcher that fires containment foam?
>>3326417No, we can use their stuff
>>3326660Wait. yes, we can use their stuff
Let's make containment foam that perpetually grows larger.
>>3326839So pretty much a more potent containment foam that spreads quicker and larger.

Anyone got a list of tinker ideas that are "safe" while we're in the PRT?
>>3325700https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJPWBRh2JTkSlapping yourself out of your despair induced idleness, you chastise yourself for this pathetic display. You're a goddamn tinker! Of course there's going to be a little failure here or there, but that's no excuse for floundering around like a moody teenager! Pacing around the workshop, you consider some ideas for a mask. There's the big restriction of the PRT saying 'no' if you create something edgy, which stifles your creativity to a certain extent. Pondering the dilemma, you're suddenly hit with an idea. Theoretically, of course, if you just paint the mask to look 'heroic' like, you can more or less get away with anything right?On the subject of masks (late enough, you know) you eventually settle on a gas mask like design, styled into a helmet.>15, not badAfter a few hours or so of peaceful tinkering, you're left marginally content. The mask itself is more or less complete, ignoring a colorful paint job that'll you leave to the professionals.The features are, admittedly a bit bare bones. The gas mask part assumedly works fine, you've installed some modified lenses around the eyeholes, and you've modeled the outer shape into some decent, layered protection. From an estimate, it probably blocks pistol shots, but anything higher caliber will at least put a dent in.>2 Actions remaining>Gas helmet (Tier 2, low) gained!>Try to create an offensive weapon (Will offer options once picked)>Upgrade your mask (How?)>Create something non-combat related (write-in)>Try messing around with some chemicals, what could go wrong?>Try creating something defensive (Will offer options once picked)>Try creating some mover-esque gadgets (Will offer options once picked)>Write in

>>3328260>Upgrade your mask (How?)
>>3328311>>3328321No.Listen up, guys, we are a thinker that has, for all extents and purposes, unlimited powers. (Unless Akire has some sort of surprise for us).Let us make up fake limitations so the PRT believes we're not worth their time, and gives us some leeway. Someone mentioned something about only being able to upgrade something once. That is a massive crippling limitation and we should say that until they leave us mostly alone.We should upgrade our stuff, but covertly and always backed up by some useless trinket we can say the materials went in. If we reveal we have no particular weaknesses, we'd be painting the biggest target in the Worm universe right on our backs, while being under PRT custody. They'd NEVER let us out, not even for a smoking break.
>>3328260I agree with >>3328333We gotta hide our powerlevel.>Try creating something defensive (Will offer options once picked)Some sort of fancy body armor as part of our costume. Something WW1 German style? Or something that looks like pic related?

>>3328486>the PRT can offer their own versions of kevlar vests and whateverIs there anything stopping us from using one of those kevlar vests as a base to tinker on?
>>3328495Nope, there's no real reason for them to say no. If you guys wanna do that, do it
>>3328495Yeah get some of their kevlar and then upgrade it.A force field to put in the helmet would be cool too.
>>3328498Then I'm going for that.>>3328503>A force field to put in the helmet would be cool too.Yeah but we don't wanna out our powerlevel just yet.
>>3328507Ok, let's add some extra plates and layers to the kevlar and as a second step put in actuators to make it easier to wear.
You guys do realise tinkering on the kevlar vest will be us improving it right?
