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.

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

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

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.

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.

B. Work at The Ruffled Haunch.

We still need [3 FUNDS] for when Pazuru's body gets finished. So I think we should go to work and earn [2 FUNDS] and then after the next mission, we'll get paid by the government and have enough Funds to pay for Pazuru's body.

Do A, but invite Momo along to the beach too. How is this even a question?

Pazuru is totally crying at your massive potential as an artist and NOTHING ELSE

I'm absolutely biased but I'm also on board with Momo. But also I'm interested to see where this goes if you explore the Donna angle more too, and the extradimensional stuff.

Plus Momo is a master of shapeshifting and I'm sure that'll continue to be something Hailey could use.

…Nobody? Well ok then, changing to the ruffled haunch.

Changing my vote to beach with Momo instead of Saba. Donna's contract required us to take favors, and she wants beach.

If we are getting a clone male or female? Also if we are buying a clone preferably one with as much meat as possible easier to remove then ad

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.

You: Why hasn't she told me about that, that sounds so cool!
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.

- It has some sort of Camouflage
- It can Fly

- It's Fast
- It's Small

- Suggest a different gimmick
- Alternate suggestions will be auto-balanced

- This can be an appearance we've seen before, or something new
- Suggest their appearance

B: It's small. And if its pincer pricks you, you will be too... Beware the TINY ENEMY CRAB!
It scuttles out of the shallows, turning mountains into molehills! A silent but situationally deadly saboteur.

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.

C. A giant sand whale emerges from the sand with a geyser for a spout. It swims in the sand but is slow to attack, but makes up for its high defense and hp... and its special move

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.

C. One Giant Enemy Crab, along with around a dozen Larger Than Usual Neutral Crabs, and one Short Passive-Aggressive Crabkin named Matthew.

B. tiny Enemy Crab!

…Okay okay I’ll provide one of my own…Okay.
A jellyfish, about the size of one of those hippo monsters from before, but this one, among other things has the power of levitation, and tentacles that sting with the trademark acid of the Kaiju.

C. A land shark that swims through the ground!

Note: the land shark's gills are only good for breathing while it's in the dirt and is not meant for breathing in the water! It will start drowning in the water, even though it can still swim pretty good while in the water.
