The gang encounters the Heroes League.

Setting has plentiful NSFW, though it’s not the main focus of the quest

Solid argument.

We should try and find a way to contact Max and plea that he at least talk with the Lyst gang rather than do the extraction in-and-out.
No. 1040998 ID: e51896

Actually, just spend time with Remy, that way we can stay at the hotel in case there is an encounter in the morning.

Yes, Max is set to make a horrible mistake, but it's his mistake to make. It would be wrong to break the spirit of a promise and make Max's decision for him.

And... D.
He still has yet to make that decision, though; there's still time to implore him to not make this mistake through his own power. We can even tell him outright that we were considering using a loophole to warn Lyst of the upcoming kidnapping operation, but we didn't, because we respect his ability to make his own decisions.

But he should extend that same courtesy to Willamena.

"How can you even claim to love your sister when you don't even respect her? Is it really [LOVE] motivating your plan... or is this really just your [DESIRE] talking?"

This might be extra "oof" if this convo happens to be in front of angels.

>B, Remy
Does Remy understand the concept of clones? It’s probably doing terrible things to his MENTAL HEALTH to see you and CC argue. The poor KAIJU is already traumatized by the death of his CREATOR so you decide to soothe him outside of the crowded MOTEL room.

There’s a worn pool in the center of the MOTEL. It’s closed due to the season, but the neighboring HOT TUB is open. Steam rises from the water, stinking of chlorine. You take a seat on the lawn adjacent to the TUB and Remy sits himself next to you.

You take the time to examine the KAIJU more closely. He has three thin tails and when you grab one it wraps around your hand with impressive strength and flexibility. His skin is layered with TOUGH, impenetrable scales that you can’t pierce, even with your hunting knife. Remy leans into every touch and headpat you give him and seems to hang onto your every WORD. You try giving him a few instructions, like standing, sitting, and rolling over, and he instantly OBEYS. Already way ahead of Normal and Guy developmentally, it seems.

>Tie – Time to call Andrea yourself and warn her as best you can
You don’t want to talk to CC tonight but you feel the urge to do SOMETHING to help Willamina and Cannie. Well, mostly Willamina, Cannie sounds like she wouldn’t mind being reunited with Isabella.

Myriad: Hey slut! How’s it going?
Andrea: Hold on–Set wants to talk to you.

You feel a chill of foreboding. There’s a muffled exchange of voices before a vaguely familiar sharp tone addresses you.

Set: Am I speaking to VV?
Myriad: Oh, uh yes, hello ma’am.
Set: Do you have any idea what you’ve DONE?
Myriad: Er, are you talking about Guillermo? Well I saved the people of DONJON from MIND CONTROL and/or death.
Set: You may have LOST your sister and everyone here the chance to WIN the WAR. Guillermo was the perfect target for Cat, physically weak and easily distracted. I had a plan for us to ATTACK while the KAIJU were sent to DONJON to KILL him and seize his immense POWER.
Set: And you have FUCKING RUINED EVERYTHING. Now the ANGEL who’s my sworn ENEMY has all of that MANA and ENERGY for himself!
Myriad: I-I didn’t know that was the plan. I had no idea.
Set: Of course you didn’t. You just bumble along recruiting MURDERERS and ABUSERS without any clue to the CONSEQUENCES of your actions. When you somehow manage to make your way to LYST I’ll be grateful that you’re under surveillance and can’t cause any more trouble.
Myriad: I’m sorry, really, I need to warn you–

You gag on your tongue as the SPIRIT PACT stops you from speaking.

Myriad: You need to be–cautious in the next few days.
Set: Wow, what an incredible insight.
Myriad: I mean try to tighten security around ggghhhhhhh—
Set: Don’t tell me you BOUND yourself in a PACT as well. Pathetic. I have no more to say to you.

You drop your phone into your lap, hold onto Remy’s shoulders, and cry.

Normal and Guy graciously offer you their MOTEL bed since they’re going out to fuck and suck in exotic locations around TOWN. You’re worried about their safety but they assure you that with the upgrades from Guillermo’s ARM they’ve grown quite strong.

Remy lies at your feet in bed, curled up in a spiky ball. You’re exhausted from crying and sleep deeply.

>DAY 5
>No Random Encounter
You wake to a series of frantic messages on your COMM from Andrea, who witnessed a glowing yellow HUMANOID enter their BASE when everyone else was asleep and capture Willamina and Cannie.

Cannie and Willamina are now somewhere in DONJON. You’re planning to visit the FALLEN Bodega in the morning then have Isabella take you to Max’s place in the afternoon so you can have a long, serious talk about how he’s making a serious MISTAKE. It’d be nice if you had a gift or something to offer to the LIZARD ANGEL, but she’s probably willing to meet with you either way since she wants your help to rescue Ripley.

Who do you take on your outings today? Pick one or more options.
A. Normal (is taking the SQUEAKY CLEAN moment to heart to annoy you)
B. Guy (doesn’t have wrappings on the rest of his body besides his face anymore, huh)
C. Remy (is a baby)
No. 1041035 ID: 899c9f

Life's funny that way, Set. You learn to roll with the punches. And boy, can Normal punch now!
No. 1041038 ID: 0838d6

Originally I wanted A+B, can't let him think it bothers you more than it does, plus avoiding him just lets him know that it totally worked.

Also when's the last time you hanged out with Guy huh? Wait shit whose gonna take care of remy then, your clones dont wanna and you cant make a clone to do it, shit. Ughhhhhh

Okay how about B instead since we havent hung out with Guy in forever? Lets see how much he's changed!
No. 1041039 ID: 629f2e

B + C, Normal can stay home if he want to be a useless asshole, and you can should over Remy yourself since CC doesn't want to.
No. 1041041 ID: f89136

B. Sounds nice to talk to him.

Also God what a dumb bitch. She could have told you that information through Andrea at any time. She could have just said she'd help you and you'd do about anything she'd asked since your sister seems to trust her. Literally all you'd set out to do is mourn your dead sister and visit your only remaining, maybe help her out, and heaven and hell seem to be working in concert to hinder you.
No. 1041043 ID: e5709d

I guess this means demons in this area tend to have a +Int, -Wis tendency. Easy to understand how things @#$%ed up, hard to think about accepting @#$%-mitigation.

No. 1041044 ID: f89136

Also reply to Andrea. See if you can get around the contract by texting it. Failing that, send as cryptic a message you can to relate the kidnapping to Max.
No. 1041048 ID: e51896

Have an epiphany to make you feel better after being told you failed at everything: realize that Set's plan involved ALLOWING the kaiju destroy Donjon, hurting and killing Kin, and letting the angels mind control the population. Set's plan was IMMORAL! Cat shouldn't have to do something so unjust for power, that would be influencing him to reject whatever humanity he has left. You have in fact done NOTHING WRONG and may have saved Cat from going down a dark path!

Also realize Set's enemy DOESN'T have all the Mana and Energy from Guillermo, Guy and Normal ate his arm too. I feel them eating the arm is going to be REALLY important later on.

as for Set badmouthing us for recruiting ABUSERS and MURDERERS, she doesn't realize that they can be REDEEMED, they haven't even heard Isabella's side of the story with what happened during the fire and why she treated Willamina the way she did, and we manage to redeem Normal and Guy by getting them away from Caesar's ideologies.

And just like Isabella, Normal, and Guy, I believe we can redeem Max if we can get him to realize his mistake and potentially help us.

The kidnapping already happened. our goal is to convince Max Angels will not have their well-being in mind and may send them somewhere dangerous. But let's text Andrea and assure her that you will take care of it so you can redeem yourself. You have a plan.

B for me I think. initial thoughts, I think we need to ask the fallen if they know anything about WHERE the angels might be sending the evacuees and what they might do to them. We can probably pay BUX for that information, but as it was stated, They're probably going to want us to help them release Ripley...

If that is the case, we can probably use that to our advantage. One possible idea I have is if they won't accept BUX for information about what world Willamina and Isabella are heading and what the angels plan to do to them, and if they really want to trade information to save Ripley, We'll let the Fallen know that our plan is that we'll be distracting Liminal with the information the fallen provides us to get some drama going between him and the heroes league as a distraction (in a sense, that is the truth, we're going to be trying to convince him with the information we may gather from the Fallen. Just don't use Max's name). Meanwhile, as we're talking to him, the fallen can go in and rescue Ripley. Hopefully by the time we rescue Ripley, Max will be on our side after convincing him and it won't be an issue.

>Text Andrea back
Your fingers go numb a few times, but you manage to send a message that conveys you’re trying to fix the problem. She replies that this Cat fellow is FREAKING OUT over losing his waifu and wants Set to send a special OPs team, so you might be MEETING him later.

You want to catch up with Guy, and Remy is everything to you and you cannot leave him in the MOTEL with only Normal and an uncaring CC to supervise. Sure Remy might get some stares from everyday KIN, but you trust that the KAIJU will be perfectly behaved.

You reapply your makeup to pretend to be a FALLEN. Seems like so long ago that Ripley first knocked on your door and started this whole mess. Once Guy is presentable post SEX MARATHON you take the walk to the BODEGA.

It’s still in ruins from the LEAGUE BUST, bricks scattered around the parking lot from Jack Knight’s wall removal and the roof half missing. To your surprise, a KIN, eyes glazed over, walks into the main entrance, bell ringing merrily as he opens the door. The MIND CONTROLLED KIN that the FALLEN control are still bound by their programming, it seems.

There are some unfamiliar FALLEN lurking around, but you don’t have the time for introductions. You wave to the lizard to get her attention, and she hurries over to you. She introduces herself as Bryce, Level 2 combat with special paralytic poison POWERS.

Bryce: I’m glad that you’re okay, I have no idea how the HEROES found us so quickly right after you arrived.
Myriad: Yeah…that sure was bad timing.
Bryce: Anyway, if you and your crew help us, I bet we can break Ripley out of the HEROES LEAGUE Headquarters. ANGELS usually kill FALLEN, but since Ripley is so talented and handsome they’re probably going to KEEP her.

Your gut makes a sudden, determined run for your throat as you realize your miscalculation. The ANGELS might not have the artificial MCDs, but they do still have the original DEVICE and a FALLEN they can force to make more.

>Ask the FALLEN about where the ANGELS send the KIN they SAVE
Bryce isn’t familiar with the process and doesn’t have a CLUE.

Max will not be at the HL Headquarters since he’s still recovering at home. You’ll run into ordinary HEROES and have a 25% chance of encountering the BOSS.
A. Offer to bust Ripley out by YOURSELF (+1 SUS)
B. Work with the FALLEN to free Ripley (-2 SUS, with many opportunities to gain SUS later)
No. 1041052 ID: 899c9f

A. Ripley might know better...
No. 1041053 ID: 15c72a

B. The FALLEN are your only chance to get anything done. They are literally the only organized group you're in contact with that can accomplish anything in DONJON without the angels having their hands in it.
If you can influence them in a way that benefits Set and Cat then that may make up for the frankly absurd disaster you unknowingly orchestrated.
No. 1041054 ID: e51896

I'm fine with either. Maybe during the raid, we can search for proof to help us with Max, or Ripley might know something that can help us with Max.
No. 1041056 ID: f89136

Agreed. Maybe we can convince Ripley and the others to release the kin from control while we're at it? Unlikely to work but I think it's worth a try.
No. 1041065 ID: e51896

I dont know, that would probably raise our SUS meter if we ask that. But maybe if we get our sus meter much lower it'd be good.
No. 1041068 ID: e51896

Alright, I thought really hard about it, but l think I'll go for B. I realize that after we were stopped and captured at the Lyst barrier, theres nothing that will stop them from doing that again here before we even reach Ripley's prison or find information. The fallen's distractions against the heroes could benefit us too if we want to investigate.

Plus, seeing a battle happen between the fallen and the heroes sounds like it'll be a fun sight to behold storywise

The FALLEN may be doofuses, but they’ve survived this long and you want to stay on their GOOD side. You agree to work with Bryce, who explains the plan. The other FALLEN will cause CHAOS around DONJON to draw out as many major HEROES as possible, while you and Bryce infiltrate the building and find Ripley’s cell. While the FALLEN deploy to various locations around the city, you take Guy and Remy aside to have a private discussion.

Myriad: So Guy, how’ve you been?
Guy: I’m fine. I like SEX. I’ll help you rescue Ripley if you want.
Myriad: Yes, thank GODDESS, Normal was giving me a hard time when I tried to get to LYST yesterday. Man, most of yesterday SUCKED.
Guy: Why?
Myriad: Well turns out killing Guillermo was BAD according to this master plan I had no knowledge of and apparently everything I do just makes things more of a MESS.
Guy: I don’t think that’s true. You’re trying your best and you’re only an ordinary KIN.
Myriad: Yeah. Anyway, can you fight without killing people?
Guy: Um, I have a lot more control over my LIGHT, so probably.
Remy: Wak!

Thankfully there’s no sign of any ominous YELLOW humanoid at the headquarters foyer. Bryce leaps into action instantly, sinking her fangs into the nearest GUARD and using her tail to throw another into the wall. No alarms go off, but FIVE heroes who are milling around draw their weapons or summon balls of ENERGY.

Choose your method of attack. Remy and Guy will follow your lead.
A. Be violent (-1 SUS, 30% chance of killing each HERO)
B. Try to avoid casualties (+2 SUS, 10% chance of killing each HERO)

You take out your PISTOL and start shooting, doing your best to aim for glancing shots instead of anything that could be fatal. You’re not a perfect marksman, and more often than not the bullet hits a CHEST or THIGH when it makes contact at all.

Guy and Remy take your use of firearms as permission to go HAM. Remy reveals a set of sharp TEETH you were previously unaware of, while Guy shoots DEADLY BLINDING LASERS with impunity. Bryce cackles with approval at the CARNAGE.

>Dead heroes: 1
>Murderer random selection: Remy

The HEROES all retreat, some sporting serious BURNS or bleeding heavily. The only one who doesn’t escape is a VEGGIE-KIN who Remy is whipping back and forth. You hear a SNAP and the KIN’S celery stalk of a neck breaks in two. He drags the corpse over to you and you shakily pat him on the head.

It’s easy to clear the way to the BASEMENT floor, where you find Ripley moping in an ordinary JAIL CELL reminiscent of your prison at the hands of Stan yesterday. The shark seems unharmed, though she’s missing her OVERCOAT and RINGS and ARTIFACTS, including the MCD. Guy cuts through the lock and Ripley jumps into Bryce’s arms.

Ripley: Myriad! Thanks for saving me and I’m glad you’re alive, I have no idea how the HEROES found us so quickly right after you arrived.
Myriad: It will remain forever a mystery.
Ripley: Let’s get outta here Bryce, get outta DONJON. Too many STRONG ANGELS, it ain’t safe.
Bryce: You’re right, I’ll gather up the CREW.

Guy nudges you while Bryce and Ripley continue their enthusiastic reunion.

Guy: The BOSS isn’t in the BUILDING right now. We can look for the MCD. He’ll come soon, though.

A. Use your extra time to search for the MCD in the BOSS’ OFFICE
B. Tell the FALLEN that it’d be best if they didn’t make MCDs anymore, since ANGELS want them. They will take your advice. (+3 SUS)

Since you’ll have less than 5 SUS before you say goodbye to the FALLEN, Bryce will exchange numbers with you and you can make CONTACT in the future.
No. 1041109 ID: 899c9f

B. We might as well use that trust to make the world a better place.
No. 1041110 ID: 15c72a

A. If we leave it here, it'll be used on Willamina probably. Also if we can keep it, we can deliver it to Cat and company, so they can try to develop a countermeasure.
No. 1041111 ID: 629f2e

A + B. Tell them as you search. If that isn't an option, then just A. You'll get their contact info, you can suggest it later.
No. 1041117 ID: f3a2ce

Good point. I'm with that.
No. 1041118 ID: e5709d

A+B) Say that you suspect the MCDs might be doing something that makes them easily detectable, but you don't know. Either way, the Heroes will reverse-engineer the MCDs they do have, and can use that knowledge to track down component suppliers and ambient signals. It would be best for the fallen if they stopped using MCDs, at least until they can customize a new version that won't be tracked any time soon.
No. 1041119 ID: 9ea24b
File 166078534611.png - (73.42KB , 500x500 , p74.png )

Since you’ll have a chance to contact the FALLEN again to recommend not being EVIL, you decide to prioritize the MCD that currently exists. If Willamina causes too much trouble you BET they’ll use the device on her and they might even be smart enough to think of PASSWORD PROTECTION.

You bid Bryce and Ripley a hasty farewell then make a dash for the elevators. From your exploration of the headquarters a few days ago, you suspect the BOSS’ OFFICE is on the top floor. Remy gallops around the hallway, whinnying with excitement, as you run to the solitary locked door and instruct Guy to blast it open.

At first you think you’ve stumbled into a supply closet. The room is totally BARREN besides a standard office desk and chair. There’s zero personal items or MAGIC paraphernalia in the drawers, which makes searching for the MCD much easier. You’re honestly surprised this BOSS ANGEL isn’t keeping such an important tool on his PERSON.

Your hand touches a small piece of carved BONE right when Guy gasps. You take a tight hold of the MCD in your fist and turn to see the BOSS.


Before you can puzzle out what RED Myriad is talking about, Guy and Remy both rush behind you for cover from the yellow tinted, vaguely see-through figure. He’s shaped like an average height, thin HUMAN, with one enormous eye in his face. You get the sense that he’s waiting for you to speak.
No. 1041123 ID: e5709d

"... Holy ^&*(. You... *Dramatic Point* DID YOU KILL THE HADLEES?!"
Methinks Demon!Myriad is trying to tell you Max is in the room. You need to be straight to the point, act like you were given some kind of vision previously and it's all starting to line up.

No. 1041137 ID: 899c9f

No. 1041139 ID: 7018ac

Thats a pretty big hint right there! Yeah, ask him that question Red Myriad wanted you to ask

Put your comm in audio recording mode. Whatever he says will be proof we need to snap Max outta it, and perhaps rekindle willamina and isabella's friendship... along with showing max the mind control device as proof they didnt destroy the mcd and lied!

>Methinks Demon!Myriad is trying to tell you Max is in the room

Max is at his home. But maybe willamina and Cannie is here? If so, they need to know what really happened at the Hadlees

Crazy idea: does the MCD work on angels like this guy? What if we can get a direct answer that way? Probably not... but... hmm. Use as last resort?

>Who’s in the room?
You, Remy, Guy, and BOSS. Nowhere for anyone else to hide.

Ripley mentioned way back when that this was a KIN specific MCD, so it won’t work on ANGELS or DEMONS.

RED Myriad is severely overestimating your ability to recognize names you’ve never heard before. Okay okay, contextual clues, by the date Isabella would have been about the age she mentioned when she claimed she BURNED that family, so you guess that was the Hadlees. So Willamina is a Hadlee? And BOSS was there for some probably NEFARIOUS reason? Isabella did say she doesn’t clearly remember the incident and the mention of it makes BOOTLICKER Max touchy which is basically confirmation. You fumble for your COMM and set it to RECORDING.

>Say the line, VV
Myriad: Did you kill the Hadlees?

BOSS blinks.

Myriad: Uh, okay. Why?
Myriad: Totally know who that is, great. Honestly I don’t know what else to ask you about so maybe we can just…

You awkwardly shuffle towards the door, keeping Remy and Guy to your back.

Myriad: Wha–That’s his FUCKING SISTER??? Bro I’m outta here.

Your defensive positioning is successful in getting away from the terrifying ANGEL. Once you’re outside you sigh and check on Guy and Remy, who is back to looking like an innocent CREATURE.

You’re due to meet with Isabella, and you go to her apartment in a bit of a DAZE. When you knock, Cannie, the KIN you recognize from Isabella’s pictures, answers. She glares at you for a moment, before gesturing for you to come inside.

Cannie: Can’t believe my sis is fucking a BOREALIS. Izzy filled me in about the SHIT that’s been going on, I’m ready to take the ANGEL deal and get away from FAUNUS.
Myriad: As long as they’re sending you somewhere HABITABLE.
Cannie: Yah think Isabella wouldn’t check for that? We’re not stupid, you know.

You sigh again, incredibly TIRED. Isabella brings you a glass of RED JUICE, which you sip while you pet Remy and contemplate your options.

A. Tell Isabella the TRUTH (She will no longer want to LEAVE or work with the ANGELS, but she’ll be a wreck for the rest of the day and won’t help with MAX)
B. Hey gang! Let’s go see our buddy Liminal!
No. 1041161 ID: 15c72a

B, then tell Isabella the truth right in front of Max.
No. 1041162 ID: e51896

B. We'll let Isabella know DURING our talk with Max. We got recordings, mind control device, and everything. It'd be best if everyone was there to hear what boss said.
No. 1041163 ID: 629f2e

B, but be ready for it to be difficult. Max doesn't like you, Cannie seems not-thrilled about you, and Isabella likes Max. If you get any blowback when.you lay out your facts, there's a chance Isabella might side with the others. That would suck, she deserves at least a little better than that.
No. 1041165 ID: 899c9f

A. Keep his prize? I don't think so.
No. 1041166 ID: 15c72a

B. And maybe tell Isa that this may get a bit emotionally heavy.
No. 1041213 ID: 15c72a

Haha I thought of something amazing.
Once we get into LYST, we can have RED sign a demon contract with Cat (or Set I guess) to allow them to use her infinite cloning power. Also since RED is a demon, and demons can absorb other demons... we could empower Cat that way. Heck, since RED can infinitely clone herself, can't she act as an infinite fuel source for other demons...?
No. 1041217 ID: e51896

We can probably also send the recording to our sister. Who knows, maybe she'll send it to Cat and the others so they can get a better understanding of what happened too.
