This is the tale of a woman who throws dice in the face of destiny and stares them down, no matter the result.

The sudden appearance of Kaiju would terrify most, but instead, she wields a mysterious gift to combat these giant foes.

She can grow to massive sizes, adjust her weight, and manipulate nanobots, all to stop the giant menacing beasts.

But she is not alone. She is accompanied by a hedonistic fairy with more money than sense, a Trio of Government agents with her best interests at heart, and a mysterious parasitic being from beyond conceptual understanding.

Together, they have captured over 10 of these beasts alive, having only killed or consumed 3 major foes, and several minions.

For the first time since these attacks have begun, the momentum is in her favor.

She is a Staple-Remover Object-Kin that lives in the city of Donjon.

Those who know of her secret identity call her Hailey Mary, but the world at large knows her by another name.

She is Miss Tear, and this is [TENSION]!!!

A few days pass as you're put through examinations, blood transfusions, selective surgical procedures to remove chitin and teeth shards from inside of you.

Luckily you're not put in a cast after your recently intense fight, but you are bandaged heavily due to the several major gashes and stitches you've received. It stings to move, but you can do it.

You haven't healed at all in this period, your [WOUNDS] stuck at a [4] for now. It looks like [PAZURU] was right, you'll have to spend some [DOWNTIME] to actually heal. You glance at her, lounging near your pillow as you lie there in silence.

You glance over to your bedside table and see that there's a notice from the higher ups, they're patiently waiting for you to recover enough to have a post mission meeting, something you've been dreading. You let out a groan.

You: There's that stupid government meeting.
You: Teaching kin how to use [MANA].
You: Rest.
You: And goddess knows what else I have to deal with...
[PAZURU]: I did tell you to get [AID] long ago.
[PAZURU]: Kin can only do so much by themselves.

- They're probably upset that you disobeyed their orders
- It'll probably be annoying

- Saba and Josephine want to be the first 2 kin to learn
- Time will pass

- Time will pass

- Ask her any questions you might have
- She'll pick the most interesting questions to answer

Call Phyllis over, and give her THE PERFECT GIFT before you do anything. She deserves it for helping speak out for you against Wake the turtle.

C. Rest. Itll be important to rest and heal before we worry about the government and/or train our friends effectively when we aren't hurt. Orders did tell us to heal up after all, and we didnt heal up a single point yet.

(It doesnt look like talking with the government will take time thankfully, theyll probably want to talk about the containment of the monster we caught mainly)
No. 1062477 ID: ac56da

Also, watch the news while you heal up.

A. Time to get caught up on the situation. Afterwards, focus on resting.
No. 1062485 ID: 629f2e


Definitely this, we NEED to rest. These kaiju attacks have inly been gettinf worse, coming into the next in rough shape is just asking to die.

And yeah, the gift should go to Phyllis. She's had our back with the government, and is rad.

C) Give the higher-ups recordings of you healing yourself. As long as they believe you made profit and suffered consequences for your risk-reward actions (y'know, which you did), they'll be less harsh.

Add some lewds during the downtime because that's what you do and it'll make them less inclined to murder you.

No. 1062492 ID: 70f804


We should go to our Lair and use our SEXY EVIL MEDICAL ROOM to heal 2 points of wounds.
No. 1062494 ID: 2f7f6e

C and D: small talk while you heal. Inane questions like "what's your favorite color" or "the weather sure is weather, huh"
No. 1062535 ID: 58dd24

Go ahead and get A out of the way. It won't take super long, and maybe if you are both prompt and still visibly fucked up after the last fight they'll go easier on you.

Then B. Once they have the basics, they can be practicing while you are healing.

Just gonna throw this up here too because it was like six months ago and I know people forgot about it even before that.

You reach over to your COMM and send Phyllis a quick text, she arrives after a few moments.

Phyllis: How's it going hero?
You: It hurts a lot, but I'm sooo bored.
Phyllis: Well just watch some Wanomay or the news or something.
Phyllis: They're giving you a break so you can HEAL UP after all
You: Ughhhhh
Phyllis: So why'd you call me over here anyway?
You: Because I wanted to...
You: You've been helping a lot and...
You: Well what I mean to say is…

You suddenly find it hard to phrase exactly why you're so appreciative of her. Yeah she's been going to bat for you, but your memory flits back to the moments after your conflict with the false queens. How heated her defense for you was. You've had friends go to bat for you before, but you've never had someone defend you when the stakes were so high.

You reach your arm over to the bedside table and pick up [THE PERFECT GIFT], you don't remember it being so wide and flat, but that must just be a trick of your mind. You hand it to her and Phyllis responds with a confused expression.

You: Thanks for uh…
You: For taking a leap of faith when I said I had powers..
You: And for doing a job you probably hate for me.
You: It uh, it means a lot.

Phyllis: Psh, Hailey I'm doing this because I want to
Phyllis: Never forget that okay?

Phyllis's eyes glass over for a moment, lost in some unknown memory. She opens the box and sees a red tome inside, you think it's some sort of tabletop RPG manual.

Phyllis: Hah, this old thing
Phyllis: First edition even, where'd you find this?
You: A claw machine, believe it or not
Phyllis: I don't believe for a second this came out of a claw machine
Phyllis: But I appreciate the sentiment
Phyllis: Remember when we used to play these games as kids?

You spend the next hour talking about the times you played RPGs as a kid, Phyllis's obsession with fantasy, and that one time you all roleplayed a horror game about kids trapped in a weird town. You remember playing this roguish girl named 'Bec who acted as the fence for kids, trading goods for quarters and being dragged into hijinks. Eventually she leaves after you finish walking down memory lane, and you can tell that she sincerely appreciated your gift and your words.

You've given Phyllis THE PERFECT GIFT
- Your relationship with Phyllis has increased to [RANK B]
Phyllis will now provide the mission trait - FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
- Phyllis acts as your HANDLER to the HIGHER UPS in the government
- She actively supports your endeavors and will push for not only better treatment of you, but enhanced rewards.
- 60% chance to gain bonus rewards at the end of a mission
- This reduces by 30% after every success and increases by 40% after every failure

[PAZURU]: You know, she's killed enough kin to populate a small town
You: Wuh?
You: I'm sorry, what?!?
[PAZURU]: Oh, she used to work for some dumb secret [ASSASSIN] club
[PAZURU]: Hired after being too good of a member of some spec ops group
[PAZURU]: Kind of wild she even has any [EMPATHY] left
You: I'm sure she had her reasons
You: She still seems like my Phyllis
You: And it's not like I haven't killed anything
[PAZURU]: *eyeroll*
[PAZURU]: So, are you going to [REST]?
You: Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
You: Fiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnneeeee

At first, you were worried that you wouldn't be able to sit still enough to rest, but once you settled your mind, you were able to reach an almost meditative state. Time passes quickly for you as you flit in and out of consciousness, occasionally watching the news or a random Wanomay, and eventually you notice that some of the larger gashes have healed, seemingly by magic.

You have taken the [REST] action
- You will heal [(.5(base) x 2(Evil Medical Room Bonus) = 1 HP)]
- 1 downtime action worth of time will pass
- Your Wounds have dropped to 3/8

You're not really sure when the next Kaiju attack will happen, but you get the feeling that your actions have delayed the beasts significantly. You think you have plenty of time to address the major issues, so you turn on the news to catch back up with the world, even if it's just for a moment.

This is Kitsu-news's Corey Changer, reporting in Polka's stead.

The city has stabilized after the recent giant monster attack, and while there were several casualties, those that were injured have been stabilized and promised free medical care by the local government.

Mamita's Orphanage for Objects and Plush has courteously opened its doors and offered to take care of the displaced puppies from the aptly named Puppy Orphanage. The city thanks her for her assistance in supporting those lost canines after the monster attack and is accepting donations to support those who were displaced and provide food to the newly homeless. Truly she is one of the paragons of our time.

In other news, is Kaiju venom delicious? Apparently Canine beast-kin and Lagomorph beast-kin find the substance irresistible and have been found attempting to consume the substance. Those who have tasted the substance say yes, but critics warn the populous that it may have addictive properties. The government has released an initial report stating that they are unsure if there could be long term harms from consuming the substance, but initial studies have shown it to be mostly harmless.

Our last story for the night features the infamous [MISS TEAR], government sponsored hero to the masses. She has been sighted confronting the beasts at all but one of their appearances. Some Kin believe that she suffered a fatal injury after fighting against the first of the two waves of beasts that attacked us last month, others claim that she is impotent and incapable of combatting the beasts after a single encounter.

Now, as you know, several large, carapaced beasts were seen being flown out of the district via helicopter on the night of the attacks many moons ago. I am here to inform you that the government has released a report claiming that CONCRETE JUNGLE was also assaulted that fateful day. Perhaps this is where our intrepid "hero" ran off to, to save the capital interests of some fiscally endowed fellows. What do you think, citizens, is this [MISS TEAR] a paragon of the virtuous, or a slave to those who hold the reigns.

This has been Corey Changer of Kitsu-News, signing off.

No. 1062786 ID: 2f7f6e

It's a good idea to keep the government at least somewhat happy, and with Phyllis supporting us and us being so successful in the last mission despite ignoring some orders, we have a good chance at coming out of the meeting alright. We spent time resting and healing, which the government told us to so they can't complain, but waiting more might give the detractors some ammunition.
No. 1062787 ID: 273c18

Then B, if we're choosing a second option? I don't mind waiting for that choice though.

It might be wise to prevent the unethical journalist from taking over the news agency. It's quite possible that the ethical one is stirring up shit like that due to pressure from above or the desire to look good so the unethical one doesn't take over.
As for your friend being an Assassin, do keep in mind that she was *hired* after being good at *spec ops*. So she was a government assassin, which means (if you trust the government at all) the targets needed to die for the good of the country. It's fine. Pazuru seems to have access to Big Facts but without the full context necessary to analyze them properly.

Kitsu-news was best news AND STILL IS LOL.
A - You'll still have to rest afterwards, but if they're getting impatient just get it done. Perhaps bring your government people along in dress uniform to show moral support for yourself - it's always good to have. Perhaps with the populace getting concerned, we could even persuade them to start limited mobilization for dealing with the threat at hand. Just a few garrisons with anti-kaiju weapons here and there to quell fears, show the people that they care.

>Your Wounds have dropped to 3/8
If we really want to heal in a hurry, we can go visit that one Purity Priest. Of course, we’ll need to provide money for it, but the option is there.

>Mamita's helping out
Good for her!

>Miss Tear slander
Maybe we should go out in costume and publicly donate money to Mamita? That might help with our public image.

>Corey Changer is actually one of the more [ETHICAL] journalists out there you know
If we can get her to like us, then we’ll get more positive PR, on top of what the government is already providing!

>Polka gaslit and manipulated her way to the top
>She's nearly convincing the ones in charge to hand over Kitsu-News as a whole
Wouldn’t be surprised if she’s also used her huge boobs to help her get to where she’s at.

>What do?
Might as well do A and get it over with.

And thanks to Pazuru, it’ll be interesting to learn some random details about the people in the meeting.
No. 1062865 ID: e51896

have that meeting this update, teach arcane focus to Saba and Josephine at LYST next update. If we can get their help in battle, we won't have to worry about losing HP too much again next battle if we're smart about it.

to prepare for the meeting, just remember Phyllis will have your back.

Also remember that the meeting might not just be about the insubordination, but also about the kaiju containment issue since we got a whole bunch of kaijus, and might discuss about solutions to that problem like making containment bigger and stronger (or maybe let us eat the older kaiju we caught for exp??? scienetists might be done researching those), so you're probably not going to get totally punished, especially after they had time to cool their heads over it and realize we've done a lot by discovering that secret cave...

Also, as far as Pazuru goes, Try to prepare yourself for any embarrassing gossip or shocking facts Pazuru might say about the higher ups during the meeting, like for instance, if she talks about how Wake the turtle guzzles a bottle of ketchup whenever he gets the chance.
Maybe take deep breaths to calm yourself if Pazuru can't resist, or bring a water bottle to drink in order to hide your reactions to whatever Pazuru says and keep yourself chill (Just tell Pazuru not to talk while your drinking tho so you don't do a spit-take.) and if you can't help a laughter, just disguise your laughter by coughing.

ideally, it might be best to tell Pazuru to save the gossip for after the meeting as you might need a good laugh after, but let her be with you, and let you know if there's anything important you should know about the government higher ups during the meeting, like if whatever choice or contract they might have you take is a scam, or if any of them could threaten your livelyhood in the future if the Kaiju doesn't.

other thing we can discuss: ask if we can have a scientist try to communicate with the centipede Kaiju, you think it tried to contact you earlier with morse code (unless that takes away time from studying the markings the centipede was using to summon kaijus, in which case, nevermind)

and maybe after the meeting, we can ask Phyliss if she knows anybody that could make a robot for Pazuru when we're somewhere private from the other higher ups.

>and maybe after the meeting, we can ask Phyliss if she knows anybody that could make a robot for Pazuru when we're somewhere private from the other higher ups.
Pazuru already told us that we'd need the help of our 3 government friends to build her a body. But Pazuru also hinted that specifically Josephine would be the most helpful in getting a body.

You don't really have a government-issued uniform since you're just a contractor, so you don a slightly nicer version of your dress than normal and head to the meeting.

[PAZURU] lists of random facts of some of the kin that you walk by as you head to the scheduled meeting room, but you, after having dealt with this for a little while, are able to internalize most revelations as they're irrelevant to the here and now.

The meeting room is shaped almost like a courtroom, you're seated separately, below the other individuals present. There are three individuals that you recognize, but the rest kind of just blend into the crowd. First is [PHYLLIS], whom you know and love. The second is [WAKE KNEE], who you remember giving Phyllis a hard time right after the fight with the false queens. And the third is a shady looking human with absolutely massive black hair, a plaque to their front reads as [COUGAR ANDERSON].

[PAZURU]: Wake has invested more funds into the city than most of the other kin
[PAZURU]: Though much of his funds were acquired by brokering illegal goods
[PAZURU]: He's been married to 8 different flamingo beast-kin in his lifetime
[PAZURU]: He likes to be in [CONTROL]
[PAZURU]: Cougar was on Phyllis's Spec Ops team
[PAZURU]: Taking up the job as [HEAD] when Phyllis [REFUSED]

Cougar taps the table twice and all those present go silent. His voice is viscous, deep, and unnerving, almost like he savors every word.

Cougar: Operative Theta, or should I say, "Miss Tear?"
You: Uh, present?
Cougar: Goooooood, we were ever so patiently awaiting your report
Knee: It's about damn time.
You: To be fair, you did ask me to rest

You selectively recount your previous battle, skimming past how you deftly handled the Kellpos and starting when you split your group to attack the [FALSE QUEENS] head on.

Cougar: Yes, and why didn't you go with your crew?
You: Because I wanted to stop the thing that was summoning them
You: Which I not only did, but also managed to capture intact, a lot of them
Knee: Your failure to communicate this PROPERLY
Knee: Led to the city being partially destroyed!
Phyllis: Allowing more Kaiju to spawn would have led to more damage in the city
Phyllis: Regardless of how Miss Tear performed in the field
Cougar: Yes, but my concern is more… pointed
Cougar: You said it was summoning them, and how do you know this?
You: I uh, just do I guess?

The crowd of suits begins murmuring between themselves at your declaration, obviously not pleased at what you've stated.

Knee: Yes and you've known each time they were coming
Knee: And "Conveniently" been around to stop them
Knee: How do we know that having her around isn't bringing THEM to US
Cougar: Enough Knee, continue with your report "Miss Tear"

The conversation pushes forward as you recount your struggle with the beast, the chiming you heard from it that allowed you to locate it, and your theories of what it could have been doing. The meeting takes a few hours as they press you for more details and for things you could never know, so [PAZURU] hops about the room, looking over each of the Kin's shoulders. At this point you get the feeling they're doing this more to let out their own frustrations, then for any practical purpose, and [PAZURU]'s commentary makes it infinitely more tolerable.

[PAZURU]: Like three of these guys are watching porn right now
[PAZURU]: One is even watching [MISS TEAR] cosplay porn
You: *repressed giggle*
Cougar: The last thing on the docket is what to do with all these Kaiju
Knee: I'm sure there are other off-site containment facilities we can use
Cougar: Hm, so you have a suggestion?
Knee: That I do, we should sell them off
You: Sorry, what?
Knee: We have several interested parties that would like to acquire the leftovers
Knee: It would help us make back funds that we could use to repair the city
[PAZURU]: It'd be entertaining to see aristocrats eaten by [KAIJU]
You: Instead of feeding kin with money to the Kaiju
Knee: I resent that accusation "Miss Tear"
You: I could also eat them, y'know give the techs some cadavers
You: Grow stronger for the next wave?
Cougar: Either way, we've already had to deal with one potential breach
[PAZURU]: They actually handled it quite well all things considered
Cougar: This needs to be addressed now.

Phyllis has used her trait - FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
- It succeeded!
- Success rate reduced to 30%

Edmango Note: You have the following Kaiju in containment at this time
- 2 Kellpo [medium] (not studied)
- 1 Kiteju [medium] (studied)
- 1 Upgraded 2-headed Snake [large] (not studied since upgrade)
- 2 Bulbous spider-like things [large] (not studied)
- 4 Incapacitated Centiminions [small] (studied)
- 5 Unhatched Centiminions [n/a] (studied)
- 1 False Right Queen [large] (not studied)

- Large=1 | Medium=.5 | small = .25
- If this is not addressed, BAD THINGS will happen

What do you take for your REWARD
- Forgo a bonus for your base and invest in the city
- Provides a flat 20% chance increase in subduing Kaiju in all districts of the city
- This 20% chance applies even if you are not present

- Allows you to hold 5 Large Kaiju with no issues
- Allows you to hold 8 Large Kaiju with a potential for complications
- Will provide a specialized storage space for unhatched Kaiju

- Suggest another reward
- Shopping Chart for ideas: https://questden.org/kusaba/questarch/res/1043457.html#1046204
- It will be balanced around being something that would cost [2/3 FUNDS]
- If you provide a convincing argument it could cost more

What do you do about the KAIJU CONTAINMENT ISSUE
- Some Kaiju will be sold, others will be held in captivity off-site
- Heal [1 CITY DESTRUCTION] by the end of next mission
- Gain [2 WEALTH]
- Unknown % chance of causing a future event

- Eat your way through them until there is no chance for problems
- Kaiju held in captivity reward less XP than normal

- But what?
- Stats: https://questden.org/wiki/Tension_Stats
- [PAZURU]: I don't think you want the Kaiju to break containment

C: Motorcycle. Phyllis already brought up at the end of last thread that you were getting sick of their crap self-serving rewards, so now would be the perfect time to request something for yourself. You've been wanting that motorcycle anyways, and it'd help you get to kaiju faster.

Plus, motorcycles are rad. It'd fit your image.

2: Swallow them, and use that strength to prevent future troubles. Eat the kaiju who have already been studied first, and after that some of the ones who aren't studied, but who you have spares of.
No. 1063050 ID: bc078d

Not a good idea to have the kaiju sold off, they're dangerous. 2 because it will help with future containment when we capture more.

We already got skates and it helped us get to our destination faster earlier, so no need for motorcycle

No. 1063064 ID: e5709d

A) We're going to get swamped if we can't find allied superheroes to combat this threat. Let's mitigate potential damage.

1) I think we can afford to sell the Centiminions, and even the Kiteju for being one of the rare object-kaiju, but mainly because they require active support to be a serious threat. Selling off anything large or a solo threat must be prohibited; all it would take is one incompetent security breach of a private collector for it to break out and rampage all on its own.

You: So are these rewards a now or never kind of deal or?
You: Because they seem pretty self serving
You: Kind of like you're rewarding me with stuff you should just do
Knee: HOW DAR-
Cougar: Knee I will pull you over my knee and spank you like a child if you keep acting like one.
Cougar: No they are not final, you can ask for them later or pay out of pocket yourself
Cougar: And while I understand your sentiment that bureaucracy is a bitch
Cougar: It's actually MUCH easier to do rollouts like this as *rewards*
Cougar: Than as actual implemented policy changes to the city
Knee: Also tax breaks, lots of them.
You: Uh, then just increase the containment and I'll eat a bunch, thanks
Cougar: Done, meeting dismissed
Knee: *grumble grumble*

Cougar then, with a speed comparable to you on your skates, rushes out of the room. Wake Knee glares at you for a moment, before he slowly leaves the room.

Your MONSTER LAB has been upgraded to MONSTER LAB III

You head out of the meeting room and saunter on over to your Lair's break room, noticing Saba munching down on a large green donut-like thing. You pop open a box of jalapeno cheese staples and push pins and take a seat next to him in silence. You marvel at the genius of engineering at creating these amazing snacks with cheese dust that sticks to these metallic goodies as you munch on them and ponder your next move.

[PAZURU]: Did you know this guy single handedly crushed comm monopolies
[PAZURU]: He did it by open sourcing convenient battery tech to the world

You: Hey Saba?
Saba: …I thought you were talking to yourself
You: Wanna learn magic?
Saba: Are there two moons in the sky?
Saba: That's rhetorical, yes, GODDESS YES!

Saba enthusiastically heads down to the lab to grab various parts from the deceased kaiju while a lounging Josphine rushes up to you with an excited grin on her beak.

Josephine: IS IT TIME!?!?
[PAZURU]: She has dreams of being a child in another world
[PAZURU]: Oh and of stopping a completely different apocalypse
You: *Stares at Pazuru*
[PAZURU]: What?
You: *Stares at Pazuru harder*
[PAZURU]: She also helped make the first Miss Tear cosplay porn
[PAZURU]: Wasn't the model, but helped with the details

You nod at Josephine and give her a knowing smile, which she promptly ignores as she is too excited to learn magic. You ride in the back of a government van towards your destination, Saba, Josephine, and a few other government agents in tow. The first thing that strikes you about the town as you arrive is how [PURPLE] it is, the foliage has absolutely overrun everything, but there's a slight purple tinge to the kudzu that is attaching itself to the buildings. The second thing you notice is that its population is rather sparse.

The ride gets bumpier as you proceed further inside of Lyst, eventually your vehicle can't progress so you have to hike a bit of a ways up to a cliff.

You: Why does this town feel so dead, it's very close to Donjon after all?
Saba: Kin here say it's cursed
Saba: We think it might have to do with tech kind of breaking easily in this place
Saba: You have to lead line specific rooms just to have computers
Saba: Even have to use EMP-proof vehicles here
[PAZURU]: The [MANA] interferes with the [TECH]
[PAZURU]: And digital cameras are largely ineffective
Saba: Though most kin who live here know [MAGIC]
Saba: It's just kind of useless outside of town
You: Well, we're here to hopefully remedy that
Saba: Also weirdly high skin and liver cancer rate
[PAZURU]: That cave over there
You: This way y'all

You descend into a small opening on the side of the cliff, at first it's pitch black, but then you notice several glowing purple mushrooms that increase in frequency until you reach what looks to be an underground pool, only the water is an iridescent purple.

Josephine presents a chunk of Kaiju bone, taken from a Kellpo, and a knife, while Saba presents a bunch of leather, scissors, and thread made from Kaiju parts. You then describe a rather convoluted process where you have to quench the materials in the pool as they are being constructed in their final form over the course of [1 INTERMISSION ACTIVITY].

You also think about making your own focus as well, but are unable to do so while instructing them. [PAZURU] gives you a look, as if guessing what you're thinking.

You: But I have time now…
[PAZURU]: You're teaching them, that's what your [TIME] is being spent on
[PAZURU]: Plus it's not like you [NEED] it
You: But I waaaaaaaaaaaaaant it

Josephine finishes first, the object in her hand begins to arc a purple lightning and blind the entire room for a moment. After the light vanishes you notice that she's holding what looks like a rather modern revolver. She spins it around in her hand and examines it in detail.

Josephine: Huh, it uh, huh
Josephine: It's almost exactly like the gun I was thinking of
[PAZURU]: The [MANA] filled in the gaps of their [DESIRE]
[PAZURU]: Cleaning up and refining the concept they were envisioning
[PAZURU]: The Foci also acts as a portable battery, refilling their [MANA] over time
You: This is cool as hell and I'm jealous
Saba: Says the lady that can go big, anyway I'm done

Saba's object crackles and glows with purple energy before returning to normal, he doesn't appear to be holding anything, but that's when you realize he's wearing a new pair of white gloves. They are inlaid with almost circuitry like purple lines that pulse with an almost heartbeat-like frequency.

The two talk about their creations with manic glee before rushing up to you and asking you how to actually use [MANA], to which you look to [PAZURU].

[PAZURU]: They already know how to use [MANA]
[PAZURU]: It's part of the creation process
[PAZURU]: They just need to target their [DESIRE] on their [FOCUS]
You: Apparently you need to concentrate on your focus

Josephine does not even pause as she rushes outside and aims at a nearby log. The log is pierced by an arc of purple light and she stands there in awe.

Josephine: I'm a fucking wizard
Saba: Alright Miss Gun Wizard let your sensei show you how it's done!

Saba touches the ground with one hand and several rectangular pillars pop out of the ground, launching the log into the sky. He then stands up and with a manic grin snaps the fingers on his other hand, detonating the thing in a burst of purple energy causing his glasses to glint in the light.

You: Saba you are such a weeb
You: So how long do you think we have?
[PAZURU]: Dunno, this is the first time I've seen this happen
You: You've seen other Kaiju fights?
[PAZURU]: None as efficient as this, but I suspect you've got [1 TIME POINT] at the minimum
[PAZURU]: Plus you got the [MIDBOSS] before they could even do a thing
[PAZURU]: I can't wait to find out what's happening next on the [HAILEY MARY SHOW]!!
You: See, I told you you'd have fun if you came out of your uh… void hole?

B. Make plans to design Pazuru a body.

Pazuru said that her body has to be a [WILLING VESSEL], or a [CRAFTED] one and it must have [VAGUELY FELINE] traits.

Pazuru also said that a purely mechanical body would be [TOLERABLE], a synthetic one would be [FINE], and a biological one would be [FAVORABLE].

Pazuru then said that a productive first step would likely be to spend time with DONNA or to spend time with JOSEPHINE.

I'm sure if we follow these guidelines, we can find a way to help Pazuru get a body!

And to be completely honest, if we're gonna talk about this stuff, I'd like to go to that one room that Phyllis took us to. That room has a lock down that makes it so that absolutely nobody outside the room can hear anything we talk about. I really don't want the higher-ups to hear about us making a body for Pazuru, since they might mess with our plans or something.

It's time for a meeting with your confidants. Josephine, Phyllis, Alberta, and Donna all meet with you and [PAZURU] in the special meeting room, just to prevent any prying ears.

You: Only the kin in this room know about our floating friend [PAZURU]
Alberta: Still skeptical, but she did let us learn [MANA]
Phyllis: Records about a [HISTORIC PARASITE] are nonexistant
[PAZURU]: There's no chance they have any info on me
[PAZURU]: Remember, [YOU] are the only one I've interacted with
Phyllis: And there's only fiction on interdimensional beings
Donna: I'm an interdimensional being!

The room pauses as everyone looks at Donna.

Donna: Yeah, Hailey talked to [LUST] and I came here!
Alberta: I, uh, yeah, but we kind of thought that was an exaggeration.
Donna: Nah man, New Crust City, born and raised!
[PAZURU]: I don't have much on her, sadly
[PAZURU]: She only recently entered my [JURISDICTION]
[PAZURU]: It's the same for that Momo character too
You: Whatever, back to topic, thoughts on making her a body?
Josephine: Well I was thinking about making some sort of pseudo construct
Josephine: Combine a Focus with some sort of costume
Josephine: Would probably cost around [3 FUNDS] to make it look good
[PAZURU]: That could work, she's got a good aesthetic understanding.
[PAZURU]: Though I would prefer something alive.
You: She says maybe, would prefer a living thing
Alberta: Could we shove her in a fat cat or something
[PAZURU]: A non-sapient cat is worse than the costume one
[PAZURU]: Also it would die of shock from the process

Donna: Would cost around [5 FUNDS], and you can't ask for my sources!
[PAZURU]: That would technically be a living construct and slightly better
[PAZURU]: Or would result in a stillborn I can inhabit with minimal issues
You: She says it's better and technically alive
Donna: Oooh, I MIGHT know a HUNK who could just make a clone
Phyllis: I'm sorry what.
Donna: Y'know, empty shells of flesh, no brain function
Donna: But it costs like [8 FUNDS], and you can't ask where I got it!!
[PAZURU]: That… would be the best option if possible
[PAZURU]: But would be fiscally inviable
[PAZURU]: So don't worry about it…
Alberta: I always knew you were a bit sketchy…
Donna: Me? Nah, I just know loooooots of kin who like sex!
Phyllis: Would the body be a replica of some-kin?
Donna: More like a slurry of multiple kin, so they won't be an exact look-alike!
Alberta: Who the fuck have you been hanging out with Donna???
Donna: I unno, kin of various walks of life?
Donna: Certainly beats hanging out here, what with the two bickering kaiju downstairs
Donna: Anyway, how's about we head to the beach after this?!
Alberta: Maybe, I do have a beach house.

The meeting ends there, with each of your confidants heading off to the other room to give you some time to yourself.

What do you do about [PAZURU]'s body

- Ask Josephine to make [PAZURU]'s body a [GOLEM] fitted with an [ARCANE FOCUS]
- Costs [3 FUNDS]
- [PAZURU] Thinks it would probably look cool

- Ask Donna to procure a newborn [PLUSH-KIN] body for [PAZURU]
- Costs [5 FUNDS]
- [PAZURU] Thinks it would probably be very soft

- Ask Donna to procure a cloned [BEAST-KIN] body for [PAZURU]
- Costs [8 FUNDS]
- [PAZURU] Is pretending like she doesn't want this but you can tell she does

- Suggest alternatives and they will be priced accordingly
- You can also choose to deal with this later
- Each suggestion will require depositing half (rounded up) of the cost immediately

EDMANGO NOTE: If you draw what you think her physical body will look like then I'll reduce the cost by [1 FUND] if that option is chosen
No. 1064138 ID: 629f2e

We have 4 FUNDS right now, so allow me to make a simple proposal: Can our friends chip in?

It's not like this is something we're getting just for us, getting a body for Pazuru is a project we're all involved with, and which benefits everyone. Suddenly, all that knowledge she's holding onto wouldn't be constrained to us explaining it to everyone. This is a group project, so we should all contribute.

I vote Flesh and Fur, splitting the cost across the four of us. At 2 Funds a piece, we'll get Pazuru her ideal body. It may be a steep price overall, but she has to live with whatever we choose for the remainder of her life.

Added bonus: This is probably gonna put the Back-Alley surgeon on our radars. While I'd love to just grab Momo or Saba as an upgraded relationship, there's definitely some logic to having someone like that in our pocket when we continuously go out and get ourselves nearly killed like last time.

Now with that out of the way and a bunch of ladies with high clearance in the room, you need to ask Donna, has she been noticing any strange coincidences in her vicinity? Anything she was too lazy to stand up and get that came to her anyway? She has a die too, right? Has she tried rolling it?
No. 1064162 ID: 13803d

Flesh and blood choice for me
Consider that we have 4 funds now, and each imtermission will give us 3 funds. That makes 7/8 earned, but since we might get a fund discount if we draw something, that should bring it down to 7/7, giving us the money we need.
All we need to do is finish the next mission. Failing that, well, we could always work at the ruffled haunch to get the funds we need.

You: Okay, well, we're obviously getting the deluxe package

You: NO BUTTS, other than yours in that body
Donna: It's gonna be pricey
Donna: Would help if I had a reference to give to the HUNK
You: Oh I already know what I want it to look like

You were never what could be considered an artist, however, you feel like your hand is possessed as the image of [PAZURU] as a flesh and fur being comes to life on a nearby paper.

Alberta: Since when could you draw?
You: Uh... superpowers?
Donna: I should be able to negotiate the cost to [7 FUNDS] with this
Donna: But I need [4 FUNDS] up front
You: *Ahem* so, I never ask you ladies for anything
You: But could you pitch in a bit for her body?
You: I promise she's cool
[PAZURU]: I'm not that cool...

You look to [PAZURU] and notice that her gaze is transfixed on the drawing, and you think you can see tears welling up in the corner of her eyes. Of happiness, you hope. It takes minimal convincing to ask all of your companions to contribute, with Alberta, Phyllis, and Josephine contributing a total of [2 FUNDS]. Donna claims that getting you the service and a discount is her contribution, which you find difficult to argue against.

Just as Donna was about to leave to commission the clone, you pull her to the side.

You: So Donna, have you experienced any...
You: Paranormal activity, weird phenomena?
You: Something like the remote floating over to you?
You: Been visited by some dice...
Donna: The only dice I've seen lately are the fun kind with sex positions on them.
You: But what about the other things?
Donna: If I had seen those things they sound like they would lead to me having to do work
Donna: And I hate having to do work!

You hear a deep growl in the distance, from what sounds like the MONSTER LAB. They happen from time to time, so you typically disregard it. Donna on the other hand flinches.

Donna: Ugh, what a whiner, just shut up if you lost
Donna: Ain't no way you'll "Eat every last one of us"
Donna: You'll probably get vore'd bub
You: Sooooooo
Donna: I think that if that *was* a thing
Donna: That the PINK LIGHT DISTRICT would be pretty secure against any Kaiju threats

Donna zips out of the room, and for a moment, you could swear she wasn't even flapping her fairy wings to do so.

You: Hmmm, that's sus
You: I get the feeling that I'll need to spend some TIME with Donna later...

I suspect that this is going to be a two-horse race between Saba and Momo. Both seem like such good choices and for different reasons. Bonding with Momo naturally lets us get more involved with Donna, but

Saba is someone we already know more closely and have given magical power. Saba's also really friggin' cool, and he's clearly got some good technical knowledge. Bonding with him would increase our amount of government support.

Bonding with Momo could lead into better knowledge of magic though, alongside Donna and Pazuru. It would also give us the satisfaction of infinite Unbalanced references.

If I have to make a call though, and I do, I think it has to be Saba. We're just closer to him right now, so it feels right. Honestly, I'll be happy whoever wins though.

as for a person to bring, Saba. He does know arcane focus, now we should rank up that rank with him.

Wonder what would happen if a kaiju attacks the beach you all will stay at, and wonder if your TENSION SUIT will become a TENSION SWIMSUIT when you transform while in your swimsuit.

But also be glad that can't possibly happen. Nope, not at all!
Actually, you know what, when we go to the beach, we should totally roll our dice and see if we'll get a tension swimsuit while we are at the beach

one other thing we should do while at the beach, see if you can find the kaiju island off in the ocean. maybe someone can bring a telescope to the beach for us to spend some time looking.

B) ...Okay I want you to go nuts with a bootleg 'mecha suit'.
Purchase a set of cargo trucks that act as a collective deployable base: every vehicle houses four commandos, one driver, medkits, weapons, scanners, and basic containment devices. Most importantly, each cargo container makes up half the volume, as it consists of layers of metal plating. When you need armor for your giant form, you can strip the plates from the containers and attach them to your suit.

For a moment, those nagging thoughts in the back of your mind claw at you. The thoughts viciously assault you and tempt you towards going to work at the Haunch, earning FUNDS. But then they're gone as you realize you haven't really done anything for fun lately.

Head over to Alberta's beach house, changing into a cozy little two-piece swimsuit before heading out. The house itself is a little isolated, perfect for relaxing on the coast without any prying eyes.

Once you arrive you give the beach a once over. In addition to your normal CONFIDANTS, MOMO can be seen relaxing in the shade under an umbrella, sipping some sort of fruity smelling drink. You head over to her, striking a conversation for the first time in what feels like months.

You: Well look what the fairy dragged in!
Momo: I see that you are just as spirited as before!
Momo: What brings you to my sandy island in this sea of kin?
You: Well it's been a while, I thought it would be fun to catch up!

Momo regales you with tales of Donna's exploits. Apparently Donna's been going around making connections and providing orgies, roleplay events, kink parties, and the like with so much novelty that she's carved a mark into the Pink Light District.

Momo: My plump little lover has been busy
You: More like she probably forgot.
You: Almost like she was having her own lil quest without me…
Momo: But what about you Hailey?
Momo: What exploits have you been enamored with?
You: Oh you know, eating stuff most kin can't
You: Totally boring and not at all fun government work
You: You hear about that superhero though?
Momo: Ohh yes!!
Momo: The fantastic exploits of Missus Tear!
Momo: She certainly has a larger than life presence!

You listen as Momo theorizes on the mechanics of your powers and chuckle at her wild guesses. Eventually the other ladies call you over to the beach and you join them in bopping around a massive beach ball. The water licks against your legs as the waves push against you, the breeze feels great against your skin, the sand between your toes. Nothing could ruin this day.

A) Hey, look at the giant beach ball.
Too late you didn't notice it was a particularly dense kaiju with aerodynamic enchantments that give inertia the middle finger. In fact, it has evolved specifically to move at the perceptive velocity of an otherwise regular beach ball to keep up the illusion.

Its insides are filled with gooey redundant organs piloted by smaller versions of itself and it splatters into redundant organs and a fully-functioning smaller beachball kaiju when it 'pops'; the organs are thin and covered in waste mucus, allowing it to get the most out of food-to-cellular-growth. Obvious weaknesses in defense, but the resulting mess between phases gives turns the local battlefield into its prime environment.

C, they don't come from either the sea or the sky. Their entrance is much grander, as the beach ball you're tossing around starts to grow bigger and bigger, before popping to reveal your latest headache.

As for appearance, this kaiju's form is far less solid than the rest you've encountered. It seems to be a mass of air, vaguely shaped to resemble a vacuum cleaner.

Move: Kaiju forms a rainy mist from it's geyser spout in the area (probably 50-100 feet radius) which lasts for several updates, causing objects and fabric to slowly melt away. When fighting in this mist, clothing slowly gets destroyed each update until player is completely naked.

It'd be a race against the clock to defeat the kaiju! And with high defense it has, that will be the challenge.

You do not hear the distinct CHIME that you normally associate with a Kaiju attack, instead you hear a foxish yelp. You turn to Momo and notice that her bikini is caught in something that just won't let go of it. You take a step closer and notice a little crab climbing out of the sandy waters.

Momo: This crustacean just won't...
Momo: Let...
Momo: Go!

And then it clicks in your head. This isn't a crab, it's a Kaiju. Did it dig itself out of the ground or come from the ocean? You don't get to think about this further before you respond with the intensity and reflexes of a seasoned monster hunter veteran, dashing towards it. But it notices your movement and yanks Momo towards it, completely destroying her swimsuit in the process. She lets out another yelp before the crab firmly grips her with its claws and moves inland with monstrous speed and dexterity. The creature holds Momo above itself as if she was weightless.

Momo: How is this little creature holding me like this!?!?
Momo: Ow, Stop that!!

Momo undulates uncomfortably in its grip, scraped and bleeding slightly. You hesitate for a moment, it hasn't hurt her... much. Then you feel a pulse come from the creature, and hear that distinct chime. You watch, almost in slow motion, as the crab grows in size, becoming knee high. You regard the TINY ENEMY CRAB with hostility. It returns the glare in a way only glassy eyed crustaceans can, menacingly.

Josephine: What're they putting in the ocean?
Josephine: It's turning the crabs into Kaiju!
Momo: Can't, something's... WRONG, OW!!!

You watch as momo's body destabilizes slightly, almost like she tries SHAPESHIFT into something, but fails. Your eyes cross as you watch this impossible situation. It looks like Momo has a secret too.

You toss your die in the air and hop over to your BLOODY MARY SKATES, kept off with your other clothes. As soon as you grab them the die lands with a solid [4], no penalties today! You transform, your skates automatically equipped as part of this weird transformation magic, you point dramatically at the kaiju and shout.


As you dash forward, the Kaiju Crab dashes in reverse, turning and scuttling away from you. Your speed on these skates eclipses anything you would have been able to reach on foot, and you selectively reduce and increase your weight to just barely keep up with the thing.

You turn around and see Phyllis start her offroad SUV, while Josephine jumps on top of the roof, letting off a shot of her magic pistol towards the crab. The shot lands a bit in front of the crab, exploding into a series of beautiful purple sparks, causing it to turn sharply towards its side, heading towards some abandoned boat-houses.

You work in tandem with Josephine to try to guide it away from civilians as you give chase. The Kaiju is too distracted by your efforts to do anything other than flee, however you can't plan for random chance as a trenchcoat and hat wearing beast-kin pops up around the corner. She's holding a sandwich that seems to have some green sauce on it.

Momo: Oh goddess, not her...
Beast-Kin: Is that Momo… naked?
Beast-Kin: HA HAH, on a …Crab?!??

The Kaiju twitches its hand towards Polka and in that moment you strike, transferring your momentum to a tossed lance of Nanobots. The tiny staple shaped machines warp in mid air until they turn into a makeshift rubber-band, latching around some of the crab's legs. Its stance falters as it grabs Polka, shredding and liquifying her clothes with its clawed touch.

Polka: EEP!
Momo: Welcome to the club I guess.
Momo: That... that's not what-
Polka: Oh wait it's claws smell tasty

You continue to dash towards the Kaiju, feeling concerned that it's got another hostage as it struggles to gather inertia. It's able to break one leg free from your nanobots at the cost of breaking one of its six limbs. It uses the remaining, unrestrained 3 to scuttle off. Fortunately for you, it's moving at a MUCH slower pace. The sound of rotating propeller blades begins to get closer to you as your GUARDS arrive.

You hold them over your head, in a mock crab pose and clack your jaws victoriously. Only for you to not have a free limb to defend your waist, it clips you, actively destroying part of your outfit and cutting into your chest in the process, but the hostages are safe, and it is marked.

Something to consider for later, but when the government gives us a bonus thing, one thing we could think about getting is an upgrade to our sex dungeon, i mean our medical room, so that we can heal more, and considering that with arcane focus' side effects, it might help Josephine and Saba out in the future.

Declothing is better than being injured or kidnapped!

That's a good idea, but it'll have to wait until after we finish paying the [3 FUNDS] we still owe for Pazuru's body. And then we'd need to pay back our 3 government friends for lending us money to help pay for Pazuru's body.

After we pay our debts, we can definitely upgrade the medical room!
No. 1065938 ID: e51896

I know, we're still going to buy the body for Pazuru after this mission and we're paid. I was actually referring to the free rewards we get from the government after succeeding and completing their missions and objectives. We got the lair after finishing the first mission, and upgraded the kaiju containment twice, each happening after the second and third mission (tho Phyllis had to use her bonus perk to help get the upgraded containment the second time after the third mission since we didn't completely follow orders). We can get the free upgraded medical room as a reward from the government after completing this mission.

The crab turns and pauses for a split second, unknowingly stopping right in front of your improvised foam and nanobot based ramp.

You: I don't like your crab-itude!

You take one step forward, grow to your maximum size, and punt the creature as hard as you can. The crunch of its body against your leg echoes out as the kaiju is sent flying towards the extremely reinforced ramp and launched up into the sky.

You dismantle your makeshift ramp and head back towards Momo and Polka, Momo is sitting on a folding chair and is wrapped in a blanket. Polka glares at you as she gets into a vehicle driven by a flamingo. Before you can speak she lets out a long series of expletives that you immediately ignore after you hear the phrase "from my lawyer", the government can handle that for you. She leaves after a minute of the flamingo's pestering, but not before she flips Momo off, to which Momo replies with two birds of her own.

You receive no further information on what exactly Momo is, but do solicit a promise from her that she will help you train in the future. You think that it might be possible for you to incorporate some aspect of her knowledge into your size shifting!

She tours the lair with you, and after meeting an already prepared Donna at the lair, Momo signs some paperwork so that she too is a contractor and CONFIDANT.

There were quite a bit of things Pazuru said that were [REDACTED], and since she said those [RESTRICTIONS] were loosening, that might mean she might be able to tell us stuff she couldn't before.

we should probably ask her the questions she couldn't answer before:


ask her her theories why the kaiju/megafaunas were deposited on our planet, she couldn't explain it before. She probably can now


ask again about the The [MUSE] in your device, and what Pazuru meant by it being like a parasite, and if you should be worried. This I feel is the most important question to ask.

There might be other redacted info Im missing, but i think these are the most important

just in case those questions still can't be answered and are still [REDACTED], another question I have is, who will take her place as the next historical parasite, and how does that process usually goes?

FREE HANGOUT ACTION: Hang out with Donna Maybe towards the end of our hangouts with Donna, she’ll let us be one of the very first to meet Pazuru

FIRST ACTIVITY: Train your skating skills and physical abilities, go roller skating at a skate park, practice your skating skills so that you can practice going faster, grind on stuff and pull off some sick dodges and be harder to hit while fighting monsters. It might also help us be more agile and acrobatic when we are not in skates a little during battle. Can't rely on our size all the time, sometimes we need physical abilities.
Idea: we can do this while transformed at some points so that we can also practice our skating skills with our size and weight powers freely, maybe get some size shifting xp from doing that too, and people can be more impressed by Chompy Tear. put that sub brain to use!

SECOND ACTIVITY: REST. I want resting as a second activity because by then, we'll have the Government bonus reward, and I'm hoping we can get a medical room upgrade so we can take full advantage of the REST activity with the upgrade.

GOVERNMENT BONUS REWARD IDEA: hired professional doctors for the medical room for the medical room upgrade. they can help with healing and potential cancer saba and Josephine might get

SOMETHING TO NOTE: if we decide to train nanobots, and we HAVE to use the upgrade research as mentioned here https://questden.org/kusaba/questarch/res/1043457.html#1049504 and can't train them ourselves, just a reminder:

- The Labcoats will attempt more invasive procedures to see if they can UPGRADE the tech
- Base SUCCESS chance - 20%
- there is a 40% chance of sustaining an INJURY throughout the process
- Each fund invested increases the SUCCESS chance by 20%
- Each fund invested reduces the INJURY chance by 5%

I think it's too risky personally to do the nanobot upgrade research if we can't train it any other way, but if it's the only way to train it, spend 2 WEALTH on it, I don't want Hailey getting hurt.

Donna: I know you were thinking about it!
You: I was actually thinking about how it was convenient we didn't brain ourselves on the bridge!
Donna: Uh huh, suuuure
Donna: I'm just, I literally dropped out of fairy college okay
You: There's a fairy college?
Donna: Yes boring and weirdly combat focused
Donna: Failed like 90% of those classes

Donna: Most fairies are PARASITES, they don't give back more than the minimum
You: You're not a parasite Donna
Donna: Yeah because I grew up around kin
You: You know I never worried about what you were "supposed" to do, right?
You: Plus, the funds you give me from the plush sales just go right back into the war effort
Donna: That's how I would prefer to contribute
Donna: I'm also investing in the Pink Light district
Donna: I wasn't joking about it being secure against Kaiju threats
Donna: Been working on underground bunker systems
You: That also operates as secret orgy dungeons?
Donna: That *primarily* operate as secret orgy dungeons yes!
Breezy: Phew, sorry that took so long, my wing's getting tired!

You get up from the long haul and see several kin lining up to bungee, fists of cash in hand. The kin don't bother you or Donna as you wander off, leaving Breezy to his newly excited bungee clients.

You: Think we should tell them it won't be as bouncy?

A quick rideshare later has you and Donna stopping at a nondescript scrapyard. She says that the body is being held here, but as you step inside, all you see is piles of machinery and junk.

You: Uhh, it's here?
You: This place is a literal junkyard.
Donna: Naw dummy, it's under the garbage

Donna leads you to an absolutely disgusting smelling pile of garbage before poking a keypad you didn't notice and opening a secret hatch. The two of you climb in and you are greeted by a much more sterile environment and tubes filled with a ton of green sludge.

You: Did you befriend a mad scientist Donna?
Donna: Nah, the mad scientist is too eccentric for my tastes
Donna: This guy's a back-alley surgeon
You: With scifi tubes?
Donna: He dabbles in biotech okay!

Donna leads you to a side room, where a buff feline beast-kin wearing a labcoat is messing with some equipment near a tube that's filled with a purple and green sludge. He doesn't even bother to look up from the equipment and then points at you.

Orel: You're 15 minutes late, this the stapler chick?
You: Stapler-remover actually
Donna: Hailey, this is Orel
Orel: Body's prepped, ready to be taken away
Orel: I get you're a hedonist, but wouldn't have thought you'd be cool with necro
You: Oh, the body's for our friend
Orel: Didn't ask, you paid
Orel: She could be expensive meat for all I care
Orel: Oh, and don't tell anyone where I work or I'll gut you and clone you and gut you again
You: Is it weird that I find him more hot after he said that
Donna: Nah, it's part of his charm

Orel shrugs and pushes a button, causing the tube to drain, revealing the anthropomorphic form of [PAZURU], laying against some sort of padded backrest. You get the distinct impression that you need to do *something* to wake her up.

Anyway Donna, your telekinesis power could be valuable in protecting from harm. How have you been using it? Have you been training it? Whether or not you fight, that's important. Does it consume magic like your, well, other magic?
No. 1068186 ID: 819b77

Boop snoot

But also ask Donna how she's feeling. There's a LOT of internalized societal guilt here. Donna's a square peg in a round hole for fairy society (which is unfortunately unfortunately, the opposite of what would be memeworthily easy).

She's cut herself off from her support network, apparently by choice. Fairy college isn't a great fit for everyone, but everyone in Fairy College should be fit for someone. What happened to her friends? Does she have any that she's slipped out of contact from that might give her a slightly healthier attitude on how her society interacts with the non-"parasites"?

I think she's undervaluing what her fellows are able (and willing) to give. When you have a whole campus full of hyped up pint-sized people having a collective sugar rush, there's a lot they're willing to risk... and a lot they'll ask in return, but it's only fair.

I think when we get a private moment with Donna, we should tell her that her telekinesis used to be one of our powers, but we gave it up. And then make sure we emphasize that this does not mean that she owes us anything! If she doesn't want to fight, then we won't make her fight.

I still believe it was a mistake to give that up, since there were lots of opportunities we could've used it.

No don't do that. Everyone wanted to give up that power, so now we should live with that mistake.
No. 1068225 ID: e51896

I dont see it as a mistake, our bond rank rose significantly to B early because of our sacrifice and weve been making extra money because of it through her, and met up with someone who helped pazuru through her, and she is still helping by using the money to protect parts of the town

Maybe if we rank her up to A she'll be more willing to use her powers to help, like make sure our dice rolls a high number to transform. But really, we have Josephine and her crew to make up for Donna not fighting in the battlefield.

I dont know if we should do that, it knida feels like guilt tripping her.
No. 1068243 ID: f35408

Telling someone they don't owe us anything is considered guilt tripping?
No. 1068257 ID: e51896

Oh! My bad! It's just me being a worrywart again looking too much into things and reading it wrong, lol.

I interpreted it wrong as telling her: "hey, we gave you that useful super power that could have been used to help us, but you know, you don't have to do anything to help us with it, even though I gave it to you." kinda like a read between the lines kind of thing to guilt her.

Rereading it again with a more closely tells me it isn't like that at all. Sorry for confusion and if I came up as rude there. Sometimes things written could be taken the wrong way and sound different in others head from their interpretation.

I just realized, Pazuru is probably naked right now. Did we bring her clothes? if not we still have our survival gear, right? does that include the military vest and pair of shorts we wore during our fight with the centipede kaiju? If so, maybe we can give that to Pazuru to wear.

or maybe we can let her borrow the clothes we are wearing now, then transform into Miss Tear (while somewhere private) so that we'll have our tension suit on (unless that only works if we're wearing clothes beforehand)

or maybe Donna can just fairy godmother her some clothing.

You reach over and boop Pazuru in her adorable little snoot. You also realize that her name does not carry the same [POWER] that it once did now, weird.

You feel a spark of electricity between you and her body in that moment that stops halfway. So you give her a smooch instead. It's a picturesque moment, the hero giving the maiden a chaste, yet electrifying kiss. You feel that same electrical sensation coursing through you and can smell the distinct tinge of ozone. You back away as you watch Pazuru's eyes flutter open. She stretches and lets out a very feline yawn.

Pazuru: So that's what antiseptic smells like
Pazuru: I don't see what the fuss is about!
You: Congrats on the body!!
Pazuru: Words words words, *mlem* moist lips
Pazuru: I think I would like a hug and to be carried away please
Orel: Okay, get outta my clinic you necromancer you
Orel: Did she fuckin implant a soul via kiss or some shit??
Donna: Wow did you just ask a question to a confidential client?!?

You bend over and give Pazuru the warmest and gentlest hug you can, she purrs in contentment. Donna hands her a bathrobe that she pulls out of nowhere from her breasts and the three of you leave a bewildered Orel behind.

Donna: Lmao that sounds like Orel to me

You try to ask Donna some more specifics about her past, which Pazuru also seems interested in, but as soon as you start that line of inquiry she splits off.

Donna: Oh I'm gonna miss my mid afternoon orgy
You: Aww, I wanna go
Pazuru: Pass, I'm a puddle right now
Pazuru: And I need Hailey to be my designated chariot

You shrug and head off to your lair, entering a room neighboring yours. It's a rather plain, small room with starry wallpaper and a large mattress.

The two of you have a relaxing evening as she slowly relearns how to move anthropomorphic limbs and eat fancy snacks. Phyllis, Alberta, and Josephine all drop by after a bit to introduce themselves, but Alberta keeps her distance, you think she's still a bit wary towards Pazuru.

And then your Comm buzzes, it's a notification from the government about your reward. You groan and look at it. But then let out a high pitched squeal as you look at the options presented due to your excellent work last mission.

- Allows you to attempt to rank up Nanobots with a fixed injury chance of 80% per attempt
- Is funded enough to attempt a free rank up once (with 75% chance success rate)
- Heals at x3 (1.5 hp per session) rate

You pick the option to upgrade your medical facilities. You keep getting hurt, and plan to keep being in dangerous situations where you have to put your body at risk, so this is your best bet. Though the cosplay addition is a bit weird, maybe they hired someone who just brought the clothes with them?

You've upgraded your SEXY EVIL MEDICAL ROOM
- You heal at a x3 rate (1.5 HP per use)
- It won't run out of supplies
- It can heal other kin at a fast rate
- It's filled with cosplay that can be worn by patients and doctors

You have some downtime, and Pazuru still wants some company, so you order some fast food at Pazuru's insistence. A few minutes later a massive burger and fries arrives. Pazuru practically inhales it with tears in her eyes, you have to get her to slow down or she'll choke. After a moment you pop the news up on your comm while Pazuru snuggles up against you.

[AUTHORS NOTE]: The following segment was illustrated and written by [Poltergeist Ethanoic Acid], enjoy!

Our next report was contributed in part by an anonymous viewer. The image we received is a rare sighting of the government hero [MISS TEAR] apprehending two degenerate perverts.

From what our loyal fan claims, they spotted two figures running at the rate of a high speed automobile through the abandoned boat houses while cleaning windows. They were being chased by the aforementioned [MISS TEAR].

The photographer managed to snap a picture of [MISS TEAR] apprehending the streakers before she set them down out of sight. Our determined fan couldn't get a good view of their faces, but it appears that it was two perverted female streakers attempting to disturb the peace of DONJON'S wonderful citizens.

It is unknown if the two have superpowers or if they were on motorized skates that were lost in their capture. While [MISS TEAR] was able to stop the streakers before they traumatized the citizens in more populated areas, The photo does raise some questions.

Why was she out using her powers chasing criminals for lesser crimes over trying to fight more serious crimes that plague our city? Are they related to the Kaiju assaults? Did she really need to use her powers to stop unarmed and undressed criminals? How did [MISS TEAR] receive that injury on her chest from just chasing two naked streakers?

We have posted the image on our CHIRPER, if you have any information on the two streakers, please contact us. And while we cannot confirm the identity of the streakers, this reporter has a likely theory that-"

Let's train with Josephine in the training room.

You drag your feet, Josephine, and Saba with you towards your brand new Super Sexy Evil Medical Room. There's a new mouse-girl doctor stationed at the med-bay. Her name is Gena and she's dressed up in a fancy magical girl outfit wearing a manic smile which gets your attention. She asks you to strip and put on a cosplay of your choice. You go with a sexy nerdy mecha pilot jumpsuit and glasses. They fall off your huge head immediately. Saba and Josephine put on matching Mech pilot suits.

You're pointed towards your usual bed as Josephine and Saba are examined and groan when the results come back. It turns out, both of them have light radiation poisoning from their excessive [MANA] usage. They are placed in beds next to you, grumbling as they're injected with some sort of Anti-Radiation solution.

You decide, while you wait, to watch a giant horse mecha Wanomay called MOBILE STEED CAVALRY: FOR GREAT JOUSTICE. It's a bit of a slow burn, highly political, and you can't deny that Khar Aznobel is the hunkiest, edgiest, maskiest pilot in the series, you really hope he joins the good guys. Pazuru and Momo both join you after a few episodes for emotional support. Pazuru sits on your bed, depositing tons of snacks, and stuffing your maw with some kettle-corn, and for the briefest of moments, you forget that you're just sitting around doing nothing, healing, just enjoying time with your friends.

Train by shrinking yourself down far enough to fit in Momo's pussy, and maintaining that form while receiving a real pounding.

Alternatively, you might get something out of practicing a mixture of speed and gentleness in your massive form. Like, having Momo toss eggs in the air, and having to catch them before Josephine can shoot them, and without breaking them. Josephine gets to practice her marksmanship, while you get to practice rescuing civilians.

Also, the city destruction and stability is just 1 block of damage. We dont have to donate money yet.

Momo's shape-shifting can possibly allow her to change her size to be bigger or smaller. So even if her ability is different from ours, she could still give us advice on how we can more effectively use our powers.

What if during some of our training sessions with Josephine this downtime action, we visit Lyst again and train there too? this is so that Josephine can get some training advice from the villagers living there since they've had magic much longer than she had, probably since they were born. So they should be experienced enough to teach her some new things and tricks with Arcane Focus to help her be more effective against the kaiju.

If Momo can give us advice on shapeshifting a tiny bit, Josephine can get someone from lyst giving her advice on magic too. though if it isn't as effective as the training facility we have at our lair, then lets not worry about it.

You follow the two outside to your training field and set up a more rigorous training plan. The following weeks are filled with high intensity pseudo games involving you, your guards, Josephine, and Momo. A feeling of familiarity washes over you as you actually witness her SHAPESHIFT, almost like there's something [WILD] to it, with a flavor that's eerily similar to your SIZE SHIFTING.

You find out, through the course of many experiments that while she can get pretty large through the use of her SHAPESHIFTING, but weighs practically nothing when she's several meters tall. However, what she lacks in strength, she makes up for with creativity. Momo frequently surprises you throughout your training as she warps her body into different bestial shapes, tentacled limbs, and pointed implements to try to sneak past your defenses.

Josephine doesn't slack either as she learns more and more what could be possible with a liberal use of [MANA] and the frustration of letting that crab escape. Her pistol can now fire globs of mana that act as a hyperdense material slowing down anyone that was tagged with it, leaving her allies an opportune moment to land a tactical strike.

By the end of the weeks of training you've trained in rescue tactics using a light touch and against the esoteric monsters Momo decided to roleplay as. You even tried to pick up on Momo's specific brand of SHIFTING, failing to successfully shapechange, but feeling like the experience was crucial in your learning process.

Unfortunately, while you have progressed in your training, you can feel that your INSTINCTS have been roused again, causing you to feel a bit hungry for some Kaiju.

You gained ([(.25(base) + .75(unique training regimen)]x2(sub brain) = 2XP) in SIZE SHIFTING
+ TOTAL [XP= 13/16]
+ More options will be added to your [S RANK] modifications if you level up SIZE SHIFTING

- Ties will be broken in favor of consuming or killing Kaiju

You wake up the day after you finish training and have an absolutely terrible breakfast made by Pazuru. She's obsessed with relearning how to cook and actually takes criticism well, so she's only gotten better over time.

After doing your best to choke down burnt grits and overly salty meats, you head down to the monster lab with her and are presented a screen with Rutherford and Saba's findings related to the Two-Headed Snake.

Saba: The gist of it is that this guy lost its brains
Rutherford: Figuratively speaking anyway
Rutherford: The more complicated explanation is, well
Rutherford: It suffused it's brain meat throughout its entire body
Rutherford: So the whole body is kind of its brain but also is not
Saba: We think it essentially evolved some sort of uhhh
Saba: Limited range organic nanobot hivemind kind of deal
Saba: There's still a core rattling around in there, but our tech can't find it and it's not in its brain
You: That sounds bad, can it's blood like y'know, "the thing" and control everyone?
Saba: Kind of, it can't infect anything thankfully, and we've been quintuple checking everything
Saba: It's range is also pretty small, within around 10 meters, we tested that before it caught on
Pazuru: I was watching them even before I got a body and its sadly true
Pazuru: Would have been *much* more interesting to have kaiju parasites

Saba: I think it mostly evolved in captivity to try to find a way to escape

Saba: But the cage we've continually developed has been just barely enough
You: Think it could be reasoned with?
Rutherford: According to Donna it still wants to eat us all and feed us your entrails
Rutherford: Though it maybe thanked us for the meals we gave it of a few kaiju we let it eat

There's a moment where you imagine a world where you and this kaiju were fighting against the world. You can see, in your mind's eye, the kaiju using its nanobots to create an organic Tension Suit. It's bestial, it's raw, it's Primal. And you let a single tear fall because the chance of that isn't worth risking what you've built, hurting those who are here, or letting it reach Kaiju Island.

So you enter the chamber and do what needs to be done, you're not risking your current friends for a potential one. You consume the peach-pit shaped core of the creature and watch as it's remaining body parts turn to sludge. It's only then that you notice a tunnel, apparently it was trying to dig its way out and using its organic nanobots to lay an illusion of the real floor. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth to have been rightfully paranoid.

You've consumed the 2-Headed snake

- WHEELED DRONES are fast and loud, functioning great as distractions
- FLYING DRONES are fragile, easily spotted, but can provide the most intel
- They're still metal and will stick out like a sore thumb
- These devices have been reinforced, them a 60% chance to survive an attack

You hop off of the vehicle, and do as you were told, shifting your weight so that you can float vaguely in a forward direction. Twenty seconds pass before your ears are assaulted by a tearing noise and your eyes are greeted with a fantastical paradise, the island of [PARADISO]

There are dozens of flying Kaiju circling a massive smoking volcano, large orb-like creatures prowling about the beaches, dense foliage rivaling even the most tropical of paradises, and an uncountable number of both skeletons and exoskeletons dotting the beachside. You take a deep breath and feel like time stops for a moment as you decide where you want to explore first.

- If there are kaiju surrounding it, SOMETHING must be there
- Clouds and smoke obscure the finer details at this distance

- The bones and carapaces have clumped together in such a way as to almost create a coral reef
- Large Orb-like creatures prowl the beaches near these bones, occasionally consuming an out of place kaiju

- The trees move and thrash about as Kaiju make their way through
- The echoes of pincers snapping and fangs biting can be heard with an alarming frequency

- Can you come up with another approach on the fly
- Or do you see something else you want to investigate?

A. The volcano

Because once we're done investigating it, we can easily float down to the other areas. Plus we'll get a good view of the island on anything interesting we want to check out after we finish the volcano.

Going to the other areas first might make it difficult to climb back up if we want to investigate the volcano later.

To add to my argument of doing the volcano first: the volcano is farthest from the beach, and we know that the volcano is farthest from the edges of the island since it's in the middle. We also know that this island is going to teleport at some point. It'd probably be better and make our escape easier and shorter if we start out at the volcano, and then work our way towards the beach to escape rather than start at the beach, go to the volcano, and then go back to the beach again just to escape.

You plummet towards the smoking volcano, angling yourself above the smoke as you dive through the sky. The Kaiju themselves are circling the smoke and top of the Volcano tightly, there's no room for you to maneuver around them.

You hold your breath as one starts to turn to look in your direction, but you safely dive into the smoke just before you're seen. You let out that breath and find that the smoke is rather dense and slightly arresting your momentum. It feels almost like you're in a pool of water.

You increase your weight slightly to fall quicker and feel a slight pressure on your body radiating out from the center of the smoke. It's impossible to see more than a few feet in front of you, but you get the feeling that you've disturbed something by entering the smoke to avoid the notice of the smaller Kaiju.

You have yet to deploy your KAIJU-CAMO DRONE, it will automatically be deployed when you land.

- Dive past the smoke into the Volcano itself
- You'll avoid notice but won't be able to tell what it was

- Move deeper into the smoke, and attempt to glimpse what lies within
- 40% chance something notices you and responds

- You could deploy a drone, or something from your inventory
- 20-40% chance for a complication to occur depending on your selected action, or if you stay in the smoke

You think about how cool it would be if your nanobots could fly, it would help you so much at a low weight, but unfortunately they lack the capability. You can't make them form a floating platform either, but you could have them form makeshift wings. So you do that instead, making a pair of wings sprout from your hips to help give you better movement at your low weight. You reduce in size too, making travel take a little longer, but decreasing the chance that you're seen by a significant margin.

Your descent begins to stall until you're actually flying, you have to flail a bit at first, and are definitely not proficient in it, but it'll definitely pass for a stealth mission.

After getting your bearings and almost popping outside of the smoke, you head deeper into it, searching for that presence you felt.

As you travel through the smoke you get the distinct impression that your cameras just wouldn't be able to capture footage in here, not unless you disrupt the smoke somehow. As your thoughts start to wander, you notice motion below you.

A massive black tail streaks by, approximately where you'd be if you kept falling, and you follow its motion back to the source. If you were unlucky and got hit, you probably would have been launched to a random part of the island. You shrug off the thought and approach the creature. It looks to be approximately 10 meters tall, but its form is... fuzzy, almost like it's shifting between being smoke itself, and being physical, or that it can't decide what it's form should be.

The creature is breathing IN the smoke, but you can't tell if it's exhaling it at all. While you can't make out its full shape due to the fluctuations, you can make out two distinct features. It's face looks like some kind of lizard, and it's packing a massive pair of... something, bosoms, balls, maybe both?

You hear the sound of something slapping against a thick and viscous liquid, and then feel a rush of hot air come from below.

You hold your breath as a gust of thicker, almost green-tinted looking smoke comes up and is immediately sucked right into the creature in front of you. The creature stirs slightly and you can hear that CHIME, the distinct one you remember hearing right before every Kaiju attack.

Only this time, it's practically deafening, radiating off this beast. This sends you reeling as you fall away from the creature and near the edge of the smoke. You take the opportunity to lower yourself to the bottom edge of the smoke, peeking your head out.

You see lava bubbling below you, surrounded by superheated rock and obsidian. Your eye stops as you notice three things. There is a large, lit opening into what looks like a cave, a Kaiju that seems to be flying away from the volcano, and right below it, the carcass of what looks like a mutated Kellpo, letting off that green smoke.

You have yet to deploy your KAIJU-CAMO DRONE, it will automatically be deployed when you land.

- Pick something to look into
- There is a CAVE, a BODY, and THE FLEEING KAIJU

- And do what?
- 40-60% chance the beast notices you depending on what you do

- You could deploy a drone, or something from your inventory
- You could also leave the area and explore somewhere else
- 20-40% chance for a complication to occur depending on your selected action

Investigate the fleeing kaiju

Investigate the body, leave the drone to observe it further.

From what we've seen and heard... I know what happened here. The fleeing kaiju just deposited that mutant corpse, and the green gas is feeding the chime beast.

Investigate the body. Find out where it came from and how it's being turned into green gas, and you may be able to sabotage the chime beast.

Send drones out while you're doing so. See if you can get one to take pictures of the cave, especially.

Investigate Body. At the very least snap a picture as you glide past

Why not both?

Investigate the body.

Yeah, lets investigate the body. But no sabotaging anything as this is a stealth mission, and we don't want to get spotted, especially not from whatever monster is in the smoke, and not this early. (but this info could be valuable if we want to sabotage it in a future mission)

And I agree on sending out a drone to investigate the cave. And if there is a monster inside and if it spots that drone, we can probably have the drone get chased by the kaiju to get it out of the cave so we can investigate the cave ourself with the kaiju gone.

I say use a wheeled drone on that cave, while it makes noises it's probably dark enough in there along with some cover to not get easily spotted. Plus if there is a kaiju in there, it will be the fastest to not get caught as it tries to distract the kaiju out of the cave.
