Hey, guess who?

Sorry I haven't updated things in awhile, school's been pretty heavy these last few weeks, but I feel obligated to post regardless of business, because of what happened.

So anyway, would anyone like to hear more about this ongoing series of events? Last we left off, my dude had made it back to civilization, and was getting low-level police work to get back into the groove of things.

Hey! Nice to see someone who remembers.

Thought no one cared there for a minute.

>> No.12706043

Anyway, so I assume even a short thread about what happened, at least some people could be interested in?

Well okay, so it's been about... 2-3 weeks since the last update I believe? There's been 6 games since then, and some bad stuff be going down.

>> No.12706083

I do not know what this is but I am interest

>> No.12706106

So like I said, last we left off, my guy was back in civilization, getting small jobs and investigation work to try and build some rep and money again.

It's been rather straightforward actually, pretty easy things like domestic violence, property damage, this and that. For a sort of action-y/quest-y RPG, it's actually been kind of fun, just going about the day and working and stuff.

>> No.12706165

What happened with the gypses?

>> No.12706176

I received lots of advice in these threads from everyone on things I should do, and have been incorporating them into my games. The more long term are still out of reach, but the simple and straightforward I've been working on, and have really helped.

For example, one guy suggested I should see about becoming involved with the Krupp group, and as I understand it, am now on the list of people to receive prototype tech enhancements (i.e. get healed).

Another bunch of people suggested that I should start looking into the crime "that girl" committed at the formal ball event, to try and build evidence against her.

Which I've now been doing. But it's lead to trouble.

>> No.12706210


Ah the gypsies? They were going to kill me, but because of my position, and relation to "that girl", I'm of potential value to them.

Since they dropped me off, I've maintained a fairly regular contact with them, learning of this and that on their end, and providing them with info of the state of things on my end.

Also I looked into seeing if I could get a seance with and of my former dead party members, and they said if I could obtain some vestige of them, then it would be possible.

So I was like, hot damn!

>> No.12706228

You see?
Good things come to people who don't act racist

>> No.12706263

So so! In between light jobs, I set about trying to reopen the case on the formal ball event.

At first I tried upfront, but my superiors were staunchly opposed. They've always been rather hush hush on the matter, and while they don't trust or even like "that girl", they've typically maintained a stance of uninvolvement. Probably for the better, but whatever.

Anyway, so I just took matters into my own hands, getting some help from colleagues and whatnot, and yeah, between jobs, started investigating to turn up anything on the formal ball.

>> No.12706284

Kruppfag here, F5ing like a champ.

>> No.12706313


Yeah, I've totally turned around and all that.

They're still all anti-magic and anti-gypsy in the police force and government, but as an inside man I've been able to warn them beforehand of anything to happen in the city, and any far out events that might happen.


So, investigating the palace, I found that... damn, "that girl" was good at covering her tracks. I mean I knew she was responsible, and my colleagues assumed she had some involvement, but actually getting proof was what mattered. And since it had been almost a year since the event occurred, it was hard getting to the bottom of things, even without any precautions she may have taken.

>> No.12706379

Still though, between paying for renovations, new staffers, and all sorts of other shit (I hardly recognized the place), I could at least get ahold of records and access to rooms and shit.

After looking around, I found the most definite cause of the bomb, was actually the boilers (I think they were boilers) had exploded from pent up steam and pressure. As I understand it, she had gained access some amount of time before the event, and had the devices sealed off, but cranked them up to full. Probably staffing them with her own cronies, she had them running until they just blew from the pressure.

At least, that's how I believe it happened. I could be wrong though. One thing's for sure though, it happened in the basement, and it came from the machinery, as evidenced to how they were replaced after the event from being destroyed. As well, she was seen several days up to the event, traipsing about the place.

>> No.12706463

Naturally the bedroom was the last place I visited, and I spent much time debating whether to even enter or not. It just seemed so... wrong. That was probably our greatest failure, and being in the place where most of my friends had died, it was unnerving to be there in the condition I was.

But I did it anyway, and while I didn't really find anything more, it was quite enraging regardless; the room itself was virtually untouched. I assume that during all the modernization and renovations of the palace, they would obviously have covered this room, but it seemed to be the only one left, and was actually rather out of place now. I can only assume it was left like that for a reason, or by request, perhaps both.

But anyway, I started getting things together now, and getting ahold of witnesses even (how I found out about "that girl's" coming and going the days prior). While it was seeming impossible to pin the murder of the Prince on "that girl", it was becoming pretty clear that I could at least connect her to the bombing, and make the terrorist theory seem unlikely.

>> No.12706539

Anyway so it seemed I was building a pretty good case against her, and had gained back a comparable amount of my old rep, had new gypsy allies, and was in line for cybernetic augmentations, thus back to walking at least again.

Everything was looking great for me! I mean seriously, quite a recovery from grievously injured and left for dead out in the wild. So I figured, it was time to pay a visit to my family, it had been a long time since I'd seen them after, and they didn't know much about what had happened.

So I made arrangements to take a little vacation. With the help of my gypsy friends, I hopped a caravan out to the country, and we had our periodic exchange of info and whatnot.

>> No.12706561

Is anyone still interested?

I mean if it's a bad time or people just don't care, I can always finish this another time. I usually do it Sunday's anyway. Or I think I do. Whatever it takes to accommodate everyone.

So I get to the old family farm, I had sent letters beforehand that I was coming. My family (mother, younger sister and husband) were fairly informed of what happened, and of my health condition. The responded why I hadn't come sooner.

So I tell my bros to hang around a bit, I'll be back with my family. I go wheeling up the path to the house, when I see it; a carriage bearing "that girl's" coat of arms.

Against my better judgment I knock on the door, calling out my mother and sister's name. I hear shushing and scrambling of furniture.

The door opens, and my mother and sister are there to greet me with much hugging and tears and... and... it was just so wonderful, even if this was happening in a game.

It was just ruined that "that girl" was sitting there, both IRL and in character.

My mother and sister are crying over me about the state I'm in, and how long it's been, but just happy to see me again, and that I'm alright after what happened.

Between a mixture of happiness at seeing them, and shock of seeing "that girl" standing there smiling just as my mother and sister, I ask them what they mean.

They inform me that my good friend, "that girl" has brought them up to date on the things that have happened since I've been away. About how we're good friends and partners, how I was injured in the line of duty, etc...

A little explanation, but while I informed my family of the typical goings on and things that I was doing and happened to me, I never told them of any of the dangerous things like the true nature of the Prince's assassination, or what "that girl" had done. I just didn't feel it was necessary to reveal it to them.

Apparently "that girl" decided to pick up on the opportunity and run with it. And so she informed and had my mother and sister that we were still good friends (I had written of her to them before, just not the bad things she'd done) and partners in the line of work, but that some terrible accident had befallen the party (the first TPK). It was around the time of the second TPK that because of our failure, "that girl" decided to go her separate ways from the group, but we remained close. She wised though that I'd had followed her or her advice, due to the injury in the line of duty I received (third semi-TPK, her crippling me).

Still though, she wanted them to know that while the surviving members of the party had discarded me, she was still a friend and there for me, and wanted to help out all she could.

Between receiving this explanation from my mother and sister, and interjections from "that girl", she occasionally asked "Isn't that right, Markus?" to which I couldn't really say anything but "Yes." and agree with her.

She was my good friend, had always cared for me, and that if only I'd have listened to her, my party could have survived and I wouldn't be in this state, BUT she wanted to help out in any way she could now.

My god I couldn't stand it.

I'm just gonna say, if and when you do kill that girl don't pull a climactic sitting in a chair petting a cat talking about your life reveal, just shoot her in the back of the head with a rifle.

>> No.12706952


Fuck, I can't even correct myself properly. Fuck it, I think people get what I meant.


Anyway, so that was what had happened, and now "that girl" had come to visit I think a day prior and in the interim informed them of the situation before I could. When I arrived she was having tea with them and they were laughing over my sister's husband's work ethic.

Then I had arrived, the whole big lovey-dovey weepy reunion, and "that girl" was there with the slyest grin you ever did see. She was just "happy to see me again".

So my mother and sister want to get acquainted again, and sit down more properly now that everyone is here.

I tell them though that I have to see my gypsy bros before anything. They say of course of course, but as I'm to leave, "that girl" says she'll come too, she has to inform her carriage driver that she'll be staying a bit longer than expected. They see us off, and now that girl is pushing my wheelchair up the road after informing her carriage driver what she wanted (I couldn't hear, it was something rather long, whispered conversation between them). And she's just like;

"It's so good to see you again Markus, I've missed you."

What else could I say but "It's good to see you too, Illora."

Really, I'm fucking amazed that I didn't just kill myself or attack her or something right then and there, and fuck everything up. I was on edge the whole time, and IRL "that girl" is like "Man this is fun, I kinda miss playing solo now, small games like this are fun!"

>> No.12707035

Oh no. There would be a chance of getting witnesses of her giving him the arm. That would be terrible. Then when you have the bombs/whatever found we'd have no idea who gave it to him. He certainly couldn't use it to fake his death and dissapear from the grid. That would be impossible.

Oh. Wait.

Who's talking about bombs? It's about the one moment where he needs his arm to raise his gun or to do whatever and it simply fails. We're talking about exclusive tech that barely anyone uses or understands. He can't just let some mechanic check it.

>> No.12707106

So we're heading down the path, and I'm not in my right mind thinking, "Hell year, she's walking right into a trap, she doesn't know I brought a whole bunch of gypsy bros. We're gonna fuck her shit up."

But she brings me back to reality with a simple whisper in my ear "So do you want to call off your thugs, or am I to kill them all in front of Helga and Sofie?" (my mother and sister, respectively)

I question what she means, that does she really expect me to try some kind of attack on her, and even so, one that she couldn handle? She tells me I'd need an army to kill her, and after requesting an update on her stats, I realize she might be right.

So she's pushing me up and right away my gypsy bro's know it's her (that fucking crimson dress she always wears...also the robot limbs thing), and are on the offensive. I know I have to stop this before things go to shit.

>> No.12707124


Probably not. I'm not smart. But I've been taking all the advice /tg/'s given me.

So I strain myself to at least make them listen to me, shouting and holding the gun in their direction. For a moment there I bet they're thinking I've fucked them and sided with her.

Convincing her to let me go, I'm able to wheel up to them and make clear what's going on, thankfully she affords me the same respect as I (unwillingly) gave her with her driver.

It's fucking difficult as hell to convince them not to attack her then and there, but I'm able to make up that she thinks she might be able to bring me to her side again or something, and I can get more info. So they need to leave, as sketch as that sounds.

Still though they're distrusting as hell, and tell me that they're going to get more help, and I have a day at best, then they're coming back and killing everyone.


>> No.12707210

She has a mole in the gypsies, OP.

>> No.12707213

hey, can you elaborate on what 'powers' her augmentations give her? This game seems fairly realistic, so I can't see how you would need an army to take her down, a group of five gypsies with pistols could get a lucky shot to the something important

>> No.12707242


She has, from what I know, seven augmentations. In a setting where, one is exceedingly rare. All that money put to good use I suppose.

From last I saw her, it was 5, which were, a robot arm, a leg, an eye, a reinforced spine, and some other augmentation. Now she has two more on top of that.

It's true, she can't take down a WHOLE ARMY, but a group of seven gypsies with only maybe two guns and the rest swords/clubs and a mystic, she could tear them apart.

>> No.12707272

God fucking DAMN IT. You shouldn't have caved. You should have disregarded them. Treated it like you had no fucking idea. So a few gypsies die? They were trying to kill her. You would have had a reason for your familiy to push her (and possibly) yourself away, citing that she (and/or you) have made enemies over the years.

>> No.12707296

OP, you have to end her post haste. At this rate she WILL become too much for an army to handle (somehow, a human frame built of steel is still a human frame, unless her brain is intel she won't be able to react fast enough to shit but digression)

So so, she helps me back to the house, and along the way drops the hammer; "Roma? Of all the people you could've turned to, you chose the Roma? That's so pathetic I don't know whether to laugh, or rip your other arm off."

I tell her that she shouldn't judge what she doesn't know, and that in them she would find a formidable enemy. She tells me that my superiors would love to hear that, and I shut up.

We promptly return to the house, watching the gypsies go, then her carriage. Looks like she's here to stay for awhile.

In this conversation I actually learn a good deal of how "that girl" actually managed to gain her money. Family talk, about my sister and her husband.

I nearly spit out my drink, my sister says how wonderful that is and hopes one day she too and her husband will have children.

They ask me if I didn't notice, pointing out the brand new wheelchair sitting to the side. Fine crafted, and powered too, I wouldn't have to push myself around in "that old rusty thing" anymore. "That girl" had bought it for me, the least she could do on such short notice.

you should have killed her the second you saw her.(she hasnt made her skull bullet proof has she?) now at anytime she could have your family brutaly killed or may try to turn them against you.

also consider everything you have done up untill now known to her and everything you have done prepared for (your investagation into the princes murder) . that unchanged room you found? was probably left that way to fuck with you.

the "keep doing my cop job" probably is not a great idea, if the amount of just as planned moments shes getting away with is any indication several of your supiors and probably a few of your coworkers are working for her. not only that but it leaves you exposed and makes you predicabl meaning damn easy to have killed by a sniper.

not sure how you can fix the situation, anything you do as a cop is no doubt observed and your family will no doubt be watched as well.

So finally it's getting late in the day, my sister's husband will be getting home soon, my mother and sister go to clean up but "that girl" steps in and refuses, stating that she can carry more than either of them anyway. Mother and sister marvel at the achievement of technology, saying that I should get something like that.

My sister then shows me around a bit, where I'll be sleeping and whatnot. I ask her what she means and she says we'll be staying the night obviously, me and "that girl" as guests. Naturally I try to object but she won't hear anything of it, I haven't been home in years and I can afford to spend more time and have dinner with my family.

For once I'm actually thankful to be a cripple; knowing her and her fucking obsessions, it's entirely possible that she'll try and do something perverted to my guy, given her prior feelings for him. Rapists are prone to perverted things right?

Anyway so with "that girl" helping my mother clean up, my sister joins in and says that they'll (mother and sister) handle it from here, us two can just take a break, catch up with old times, whatever.

Nonchalantly, "that girl" suggests she take me for a walk. It's so beautiful out here away from the cities, and we haven't seen each other in so long, it'd be nice to catch up.

FUCKING MOTHER suggests we can even stop by the lake to watch the sunset, it's breathtaking this time of year.

We get to the lake, and talk some more, waiting awhile to watch the sunset. She says it's beautiful, and it (described as) is.

Immediately after which she kicks me out of the wheelchair, picks the thing up and crushes it with her hands, tossing it like a piece of trash before pacing over towards me as I'm crawling away trying to get out the gun (I figure she's going to drown me and kill the family).

As my groups version of "that girl' (albeit with a dick) I keep seeing all the missed opportunities.

But if you're enjoying it, more power to you.

P.S. You missed approximately five opportunities to mind-fuck that-girl. My personal favourite would be to break down weeping once you work out 'That Girl' is setting up the lies with your family. Break down in tears and cry about how you should have listened to her. Keep it ambiguous enough that your family think he's refering to the cover story, but mention enough tidbits that That Girl thinks you're emotionally fucked up by the crippling.

Essentially she made it clear, that in me she saw herself all those years ago, left dejected and destroyed, clinging to life. And for that she was afraid. As I was, driven by revenge, she knew eventually it would be me to be the one to haunt her, return her to my state.

Quite frankly I believe she thinks far too much of me, that I'm actually a threat. I mean I could be, I'm getting great advice with these threads, but I'm not close to enacting anything major yet.

Regardless, she feared this would become an endless cycle. I'm guessing this was something she had been working on this awhile, and was just waiting for a non-hostile (I mean relatively speaking) situation to express it.

She explained what she was trying to do with the world, trying to save it. We both knew what was coming in the future, she wanted to stop it. The outsider (a Nemo inventor gone AWOL) had shown her what she could do, that she had gone from a rogue, commoner, to influencing the policies of nations.

She asked me why I would want to oppose that, to let "all this" (my family farm) burn. Was it worth letting the world go to war?

I simply replied that a world she saved, a world she was in charge of and proclaimed a hero, was not one I wanted to live in.

Cue some more trying to convince me of her ideals, but I was resolute. More in my opposition of her, than her actions or goals. It was still difficult to refute the things she was doing though.

>> No.12709332

Anyway so she sighs, and says the only thing stopping her from killing me here and now, is how my family would think of her before she had to kill them as well.

If I kept opposing her though, then she would finish what she started back in the forest to Russia. With that she told me she didn't want to see me out of the new wheelchair she got me after this, and picked me up to carry me back to the house as night fell.

Again, not a pleasant experience, being held by the person, the hands that killed my partners, and crippled me in the first place.

So we get back, and everyone's worried about us, and why "that girl's" needing to carry me. She makes up some bullshit excuse about me falling in a gully on our walk, the wheelchair getting broke. Mother and sister agree, all the more reason to use the brand new wheelchair I got. And there's me, not really in a position to argue. I was able to avoid getting put in the chair though.

Also I met my sister's husband, my brother-in-law for the first time.

So we all sit down to have dinner, talking more like we did at tea earlier, only with the husband now, just learning about each other, and talking about this and that.

>> No.12709395

We finish up dinner, "that girl" helps my mother and sister clean up while I sit with the husband in the living room and find out if he's good for my sister.

Because even if the world's going to hell, you could die the next day, and you have an obsessed cyborg chick after your hide, you have to take care of your family.

Eventually the time passes, mother went to bed, and it was me and the husband in the living room, "that girl" and sister in the kitchen, each talking to the other in separate conversations.

And eventually it's time to go to bed.

So I get shown to my room, wheelchair and whatnot at the ready if I need it for some reason (I'd rather crawl than use it), and told goodnight. "That girl" is in the room down the hall, sister joking we could reach each other easily if we felt like it.

Thanks sis, thanks a fucking bunch.

This is where the game ended.


Tomorrow the gypsies are coming to kill everyone, someone I know is a mole, so that "that girl" knows what I'm doing. She now knows I'm in cahoots with the gypsies and could have this reported to my superiors. That's all tomorrow though.

Right now here I am, sitting in one of the downstairs gust bedrooms, everyone else probably turning in for the night too, and I'm afraid to turn out the light.

I cant belive how stupid you are playing her game. She's better at this. I told you in the first thread and I'll tell you again: give up.

She didnt have anyone with ill intentions opposed to her that was constantly keeping tabs on her ready to squish her the second she became a real threat.
Sometimes people don't get their revenge, sometimes justice is ignored for the greater good, somtimes people are raped or killed. If you can stop it thats good but you are not and you will not be able to stop her. And I am not conviced it would help anyone if you did either.

Well up until now, she assumed I was dead. I bet hearing from her mole that I was alive, and taking up vengeance against her, came as a bit of a surprise. In fact I'm wondering what the rest of "her" party is doing while she's paying me this little visit.

Still though, this is her first time seeing me after believing me dead, and has made clear that if I continue to be a nuisance she'll kill me.

So yeah, I don't think she's contemplating keeping me around much longer if I continue.

You have several problems which need to be addessed:
1. Missing Limbs
2. Tails watching your every move
3. Moles infiltrating your only allies
4. Everything else that could possibly be against you in this situation is.

Furthermore we've learned:
1. She has a Nemo Tech Liason
2. She is pure evil (rapist, murderer, and sadistic as fuck) but convinced she is good.
3. She will take any measure needed to ensure you are not a threat.

You have two options before you DP.
1. Fake your death and become batman.Very difficult under her close scrutiny. You'll need to identify your tails, lose them without killing them, and then leave enough physical evidence to show beyond a shadow of a doubt that you committed suicide. It must be perfect. Find Nemo or make a pact with some powers to get shit jump started once her feelers are off you.

2. Admit to yourself that you are going to lose. Its a foregone conclusion. HOWEVER, with preparation you can still go down like a man. You represent law, order, etc. She in a vile deceiver. Write epic speech. Get the last word. If the world is so foolish and vile to swallow her lies, and if she's duped herself into thinking that someone so malevolent as to rape and murder and be able to sleep like a baby content with herself into believing that she woon't be the most horrible ruler ever, then truly you weren't meant for such a broken world. She has won. There could be no other way. But let her know with your last breath that just because you won't live to see her called into judgement for her actions, doesn't mean you won't see it. You'll be waiting. When she lies awake at night and all her machiavellian plots seem stretched taut, you'll be waiting. When assassin's bolts pass by her ear, you'll be waiting. When the peple rise up against her, you'll be waiting. When she lies old and feeble like you are now, weezing and with vision failing and all things grow dark...
She'll see you again. And you will need not wait any longer.

At the risk of sounding cruel, you don't really seem to have what is needed to scheme someone like this.

Her schemes haven't actually been that clever. They're just the plotting equivilent of breaking into a store to steal a hammer to smash someone's brains out. She isn't predicting and preemptively reacting, she's being proactive. And with her goals known, that means she is weak.

What you need, but what I'm not convinced you can provide, is the scalpel. Here are some possible suggestions.

1. You know she has a mole, possibly two or more. You need to escape their view. Resign your commission (after stealing whatever you could use from the place, along with a bunch of other unrelated files to throw the trail off when she investigates). Cut off ties and start afresh.
2. Get a cadaver, place it in your wheelchair, place the wheelchair in a carriage and set it alight in front of her palace/home. This is a psychological move, she will be searching for symbolism in it. Are you willing to die for your unknown goal? Do you believe you are already dead? Was the body you, or someone else?
3. Your first goal is evening the playing field. Even if she is amazingly powerful and you can't challenge her, you still need mobility. Don't focus on pure strength in whatever you gain, you can't outfight her - she has too much of an advantage - so focus on utility. She has enhanced strength? Weave yourself with spells that cloak you in night. She has incredible stamina, give yourself the ability to wall-crawl and escape when needed. If you beat her properly, you need not fight her at all.

>> No.12709733


Sure, she says it's awesome and she's loving the way things are turning out. Mostly she wants to see where I take my character, and hopes I can make it interesting for her and the others.

About her character, she commented that she didn't intend to become the villain from the start, but she's rather liking it.

For DM rotation, in our group we just have a new person each week run the thing. Their PC becomes a DMPC for that session, and thankfully no one's run away with it and made their person a god in one game.

The only one's who aren't allowed to DM, are her, for my game, that's it. I just don't DM because I'm no good at it.

4. She made a point of stealing your companions from you. It was important to her that she is accepted while simultaneously depriving you of the company she feels your group deprived her of. So you need to destroy that. Any evidence you found of her involvement in the explosion/rape, make sure it falls into the hands of the PCs. Leave a note saying "Do not trust her". You don't want to trigger a conflict between them, you want to plant the seed of doubt.
5. The moment you make an overt move against her, or anything she can trace to you, she will track it back to your family. They will die at her hand to teach you a lesson. That is why you catch her first. She presumably has family? Her character should unless she pulled the orphan card, and even if she doesn't you know damn well she has a son. So after you make an overt move, when she goes to your house to enact vengeanve she finds her son's clothes (or a very, very convincing replica) nailed to the door of your family's house. It sends a clear message "Touch them, and he dies, and with him dies your plan." Make family off-limits, let her know you COULD have taken him, but you chose not to. Let her think you still have some morality. This deception will be your greatest strength.

I can't offer too precise a plan yet. A good plan needs to consider the known variables and be robust enough to survive the unknown variables. Hence why knowledge is so valuable.

You need to know her plan, you need to know her goal, and most importantly you need to know if you agree with her goal. There is no gain in crushing her if it plunges the world into a situation you do not wish. If that is the situation, aid her, make her need your help, make her fear what will happen if she tries to remove you from the plan.

When looking at her plans, consider that she is the hammer that is used to break bone. Her weakness would be the scalpel that slits throats. She has power, but lacks subtlety. Make her afraid of the shadows around her, as any one of them could hold a wheelchair you leave to taunt her.

That was talking about the process of evening the playing field. She fixed her limbs, he needs to do the same. She enhanced herself in the process, and he needs to do the same as well.

Honestly, it's essential in the rivalry. It's a psychological thing, it tells her straight away that he is equally as dangerous as she is just because he could survive the situation she could survive.

But that precludes the notion that he lets her know he pulled it off. The covert strength is far more powerful.

Hmmm, those are interesting facets which I'll look into.

As just a general rule of thumb, since Nemo's arrival, actual history had more or less been put on hold while the world is reeling from his meddling, but as has been shown before, actively looking into history in the setting usually causes it to occur.

For example, since Nemo there hasn't been any really major conflicts (except for the near-war "that girl" caused when she killed the Prince, then averted when she presented herself carrying his child), and most countries have put things on hold, scrambling for Nemo tech. Again, several things have happened to follow history, but in general it's sort of at a medium of inactivity.

This is, I assume, for us to play in and either participate in, or cause things to happen.

I think you should do it with Nemo tech. Be Batman, in the truest sense - a badass normal who uses ultra-advanced technology to walk in the realm of gods - and be ACCEPTED in that realm.

Become a force for good, with the very thing she hates most.

And then save her life.

Alternatively: work your way up the Roma. Become someone they admire or at least will listen to. Convince them to help Nemo deal with whatever problem he's having, in return for him helping them... and you. And then, uh, go from there.

>> No.12711176

OP, disappear into the Romas as soon as you can walk. Make sure to get a hold of large quantity of explosives that girl will likely know about. First of all, they are very hermetic, it's not likely for that girl to have a spy there. Second of all: magic, real magic that will bend and twist her pathetic machinery with a nod of your head. Third of all: she will have to find out what are you going to do, she will reveal her agents. Catch them so you may interrogate them.

you can't use the wheelchair. it is so much a trap it's not even funny.

if the Gypsies won't help you maybe some other group will. Haitian voodoo priests? Golden Dawn/Freemason magicians? priests of Set? in this world Helena Blavatsky might have actual psychic powers. you could try to find the Holy Grail or the Fountain of Youth.

wait, you are in Poland, right? Seek out Baba Yaga. from wikipedia: The version Polish folklore differs in details. For example, the Polish Baba Jaga's hut has only one chicken leg. Monstrous witches living in gingerbread huts are also commonly named Baba Jaga. Baba Jaga, flying on a mop and wearing black and red striped folk cloth of Świętokrzyskie Mountains, is an unofficial symbol of Kielce region (it is connected with legendary witches' sabbaths on Łysa Góra mountain). In some legends, Baba Yaga is also awarded the title Костяная Нога ("The Bone Leg") and considered a guardian between the real world and the land of the dead. This title later became an idiom, often used as taunt.

1. The gypsies will come back in the morning with more friends. This is very bad. However, like someone up-thread mentioned, she's not so much clever as she is pro-active. Take a page from her playbook and meet up with the gypsies before morning comes. Getting out of the house without her catching on will be impossible, though. If you absolutely have to, let her come. When you meet up with the gypsies, shoot her down whenever she tries to talk. It's gonna be hard, but make it clear that a fight is something neither of them will profit from.

2. Accept the wheelchair for now. Get a new one fast and ditch the one she gave you the first chance you get. This point has been made so many times now, it's not even funny. It's a trap.

3. Last thread someone said you should have a plan ready to disappear at a moment's notice. Give yourself a month In Game to get your shit together. Don't fuck around and get ready to split.

4. Her continuing embrace of Technology and disparaging remarks about the Roma only serves to highlight what you must become. Become Magic.

5. The way she talks to you, her remarks about how she sees you as a threat and the fact that she has not acted on the hundreds of chances she has had to kill you makes it seem to me that she is acting like a jilted woman.
Of course, when I say that, I mean more in collegial sense than an actual romantic sense. Still, play this angle up in your future encounters anyway.

6. Lastly, I want to know where you see your character's rehabilitation going. Are you going the tech route or are you holding out for a magical option?
If you're going with tech, remember what you said about how it fizzles when exposed to strong magic. If you lose the inevitable fight against her because your fucking spine shut down when you were Magicing it up, you deserve everything you get.

>> No.12711906

You know, OP, you shouldn't let that girl dictate the encounter. When she tells you to go for a walk with her it's obvious she has the whole speech ready. I'll bet she loves aggrandizing herself. You telling her that you don't feel like going for a walk because your stump hurts would surely piss her off.

>> No.12711979

Well, first thing to do would be to go out of the house. From the loks of things you can only use the wheelchair to move and the only avaiable is hers.
However, that's not only possible mean of transportation to you. To be more presice, you can ride carriages. Are there any around?
Ah. Hers, right?
So, you need to get on her wheelchair and go outside, intercept her carriage and your gypsy friends and scram. The problem is, therefore, in two things.
a) posible sinister trap in the chair
b) her following you

Now that is tough. It's virtually impossible to eliminate those actorsas things stand now...

>> No.12712044

However there is certain course of action that you may take. It relies on her personality shown so far.

So, here it is. You need to walk her away, thus dodging the gypsy encounter in front of your family house, at least.
These are methods i see might work:
a) telling her you thought everything over and over, and ou started to see her POV
b) leading her away suspiciously, as if in trap
c) she is the type that would just walk into trap just to prove it can't beat her. Rouse her suspicions but misplace them. When it'd become apparent there is no trap there, she might have a sight change of heart because of "falsely suspecting you". Although the premise is flimsy, it just might work
d) feed her with bullshit on the way. Make it seem as if you are not only hating her, but the opposite as well. With roleplayer she seems to be it's guaranteed to be a challenging conversation, i believe
In the end, it comes to getting her away from possible attack and trying to "show some degree of inner remorse". Persuade her that you can be brought to her side.
Some message left for gypsies might be in order, though.
It all serves a singular purpose of getting her off your neck right here, right now. When you are in relative clear, options would be manyfold.

>> No.12712141

Kruppfag here, if she has a mole among your close friends/coworkers, the you should retire form being a cop. Seriously, you won't get much done if her informant tells her everything that you do. I know I probably sound like a broken record by this point, but you should consider working for the Krupps, possibly as an inventor. After all, why become Batman when you can become Tony Stark/Nikolai Tesla?

In the short term however, you should do nothing. When the gypsies come, they are mostly coming for That Girl. If what you say is true, she probably can and will take them out by herself without getting your family harmed, if only to mock you. As for the chair, it probably isn't trapped. It would be too obvious.

See the only problem with the magic route, is that while I agree it is highly more appropriate in the long run, and a better method to seek out, it just takes a very long time, especially for a character like mine, already an adult with no history or ancestry of magic. To become even semi-competent at it, without using any artifacts or anything, would take many years.

Whereas the tech route, I could technically go out tomorrow and be good as new, or stronger. However that said, there's nothing stopping me from surrounding myself with magic allies and forces.

As well, while technology and magic don't mix well, it's possible to do. The Ottomans are doing it in the setting, as did the outsider.


I could snipe her, but assuming that she doesn't have like a brain case or skull reinforcement (she has at least 3 other unknown augmentations inside her body), against the threat of character death like that, she could spend some fate points. Most of us (me included) have had to use them on a fairly consistent basis, spending them as we gain them. I had to blast few a through to keep from dying out in the forest. She hasn't been spending too many though since she's had her baby.

Although, if I keep sniping her on a regular basis, and she doesn't wise up, then yeah she'd probably snuff if.


Normally I wouldn't, and probably I'd just shoot her on the spot, but with my family there and making suggestions (I wholly think that my mother sees a potential relationship in us), I can't really just deny everything and refute her.

>> No.12714164


Holy lol that's awesome.


Well I can still be a policeman (it's like the only job I can do well given my background, stats, and condition), I just can't really take up investigations or go against her.

As for the gypsy attack, the only problem of letting her kill all of them, is that it will almost certainly hurt my position among the Roma, if my liaisons and escorts all got killed by "that girl" whom I am now apparently meeting with again.

>> No.12714234


Actually she sent her carriage away when she heard she was staying.

They'll be there to pick her up in the morning though, I just have to stop the gypsies before then, or in some way or other, you're right, just have to get her away from they so on one dies or is suspicious or any mess.

you could try intercepting the romas.

>> No.12714425


Yeah I think that's a pretty good idea although maybe not so early, but in general based on the posts gathered in the thread I think I have a good course of action.

Basically get my family out first of all. The husband goes to work, while sister sometimes goes to town, I'll just have her take mother.

Then the issue is just the gypsies, and dealing with them depends on whether or not "that girl" is still here. If she leaves before they arrive then all's well. If not, then I just have to get her away from the house.

Shouldn't be THAT hard to manage, given what I'm used to having to do.

A thought: have you spoken with romas about learning magic?
You said that sufficiently powerful magics would take years. But what about some cantrips? Low level magic could be useful too. You can have a little surprise for that girl and she won't take it as easily as your gun. I don't know your setting, but if it's possible to learn something like prestidigitation, low power telekinesis, maybe creating little light or darkness to temporarily blind or at least distract someone. Even more useful would be ability to magically contact someone, either through telepathy or throwing your voice. You are not very mobile and in that way you can order your mooks from away. Will low level magic fuck with technology too?

I think simple things like wards and charms or whatever shouldn't be too difficult to learn a few.

And it's the other way around, it's technology that messes up with magic. Unless it's very powerful magic, then it's technology that's trumped. But we've only come across barely a few examples of that, and had lots of assistance in dealing with it.

You need step up your game, because you're failing miserably. Less focus on things that will take years to complete, more on the immediate. The more time you give her the more likely she'll win, because she is obviously more active than you (and also possibly sucking off one of the DMs under the table).

Set a trap.

First the bait. Two things she really really hates: you and nemotech. We will draw her in with the premise that you are meeting with nemotech type advisers to help arrange for a war machine to be made. We will take advantage of her own spy network to do this.

First make purchase of small, inexpensive cottage somewhere in a quaint rural community. We want it to be out of the way, someplace where she would not have eyes. Make this purchase discreetly. Maybe have someone trustworthy spend a few nights there, checking for anyone watching the place.

This step is the hardest. Wire the house with explosives. Getting the explosives.... fertilizer maybe. I dunno, I'll leave that to you. Your gypsy friends may be able to help by placing some sort of 'face in the crowd' nondetection charm on you.

Then, spread word among the gypsy (and the mole within them) about the war machine meeting upcoming, and prepare to blow her sky high.

Well initially that was the idea by investigating, simply cause her to be rejected by the world she created. Having evidence of her killing the Prince would do that well enough. She seems to be aware of that though, hence her current presence.

I still think it's a viable option, just simply not at the moment where she's breathing down my neck and poised to tear me apart whenever she pleases. There's probably other methods to the same result I could do though.

I'm still weighing my options.


The ONLY problem with that, is that for some gathering, or sizable event like that, I doubt she'd show up by herself and be on the forefront of the attack in person.

Since we left her crippled, the only times she done things personally was when it had to deal with us, or was a personal matter (first TPK = dealing with us, killing her husband = personal matter).

Even if I was there, she's not just going to walk into some assumed gathering to kill us all, even though she very well could.

To pull a feat like that, it would need to be an example, where it was probably just me doing something. LIKE I was building or going to activate some Nemo construction I obtained. Otherwise she'll just use the laws and country, to kill us with the rulebook.

If it's just me though, you can bet your ass she'll probably be there to annihilate me in person.

The outsider was one of the inventors, assisting Nemo and the others out in the Pacific in their struggle. For some reason she switched sides on them though, as we understood it for religious reasons, and after betraying them came to Europe.

Irish in decent, she used strange, VERY powerful new abilities (a successful amalgam of Nemo tech and newly gained, extremely potent magic) to enact some ancestral revenge on England, wiping out most coastal/port towns in the southern half of the country, and inadvertently causing similar backlashes in France just because of her sheer effect.

As the first openly hostile inventor (everyone at the time assumed she was still one of them), a temporary coalition of European countries was formed (our group included) to end the threat. Even so it proved to be a stalemate until Nemo and his lot offered assistance.

In the end, though she was defeated and her tech holding seized by Nemo, England actually was able to get hold of her and now have her locked up someplace, hoping to learn something from her. Nemo wanted the same, though not enough to risk open war with Europe. To this day, he still wants her though. Pretty much everyone does, but she's England's current best hope, assuming they can get anything out of her.

To date, the outsider has been the most dangerous enemy we've faced, to my knowledge.

Disarmed Policeman I hate to say this, but you are doing it wrong.

Now this is not your fault, a giant number of role players suffer from the same mindset that got you into this most recent predicament. As stated earlier, you are not being pro-active. While this is acceptable for when you are playing in a group with the GM handing you quests, you are not in a group anymore. Your first mistake was when after getting back to the city you tried to make things go back to normal. Instead of making contacts or searching for a way to make you mobile you went back to your job. Now normally I would not say that was a bad thing,revenge plots need cash, but then you went and investigated "that girl". Did you not think she would have spies on that to make sure you did not dig up any dirt on her.

Fortunately things are not without hope. As you have said she has a weakness whether you know it or not. As you said she will not use Nemo tech. That leaves her vulnerable to powerful magic.So what you need to is get to be a fairly powerful magician quickly. As you have said this will be a difficult task but I do not believe it to be impossible like you. Striking a deal with fey could be an "easy" way out. Bargain with them for either magical power enough to disrupt tech ,or for a character rebuild, sacrificing past skills to be a mage. As you can see there are options and the price could be negligible. As kicking "that girls" butt could cause WWI there is an easy out on what to offer the fey. Your bargain for magical might is to cause a massive blot to the fey's archenemy, civilization, by causing WWI in exchange for the fay's assistance.

My advice is get out of there A.S.A.P. Then go back home cash out every thing you own, use the gypsy mystic to get you talking to the fey spirits, and bargain for magical might.

I still feel the deck is stacked against you. I doubt if she even need to set up a mole. I imagine that she just said to your dm "I want to see what is up with Disarmed Policeman today" and your dm let it happened.

The rest of your group seems to admire her greatly and to some extent so do you.

The rest of the party I believe just finished a quest, and this is the interim before the next one, hence why she was able to take the time off to visit me.

In the other threads, I partially detail it out how she gained her current position. Mostly through deception, marrying into titles, bearing royalties children, and on the side having large business holdings, etc...

She's quite powerful, not only physically, but economically and politically. She's not at the point yet of running a country or calling the shots, but she potentially could be. Currently she just influences policy.


Well I've said before, in joining Nemo (after completing all the prerequisites of course), all I'd have to do is help them resolve their "conflict" out in the Pacific, and then I'm basically one of them and privy to whatever they do.

So the barrier to entry is high at first, but once in, it's pretty much easy sailing.

Just that, it involves severing my ties with the world, and hence and revenge plots I may have had against "that girl" essentially, joining Nemo, I believe would probably go something like spending many years away, then returning as one of them.

Again the only issue is that by doing so it leaves "that girl" ultimate freedom to run about unchecked. I could join Nemo, but by the return she may have Europe or even more, under her thumb.


Also her influence in Germany as well. If her Spanish plan crumbles, she's still got Germany, her home.

>> No.12716961

A "Machine Curse" spell should be pretty simple, right? Right? I mean, its fucking canon that (outside of Nemotech) magic and science don't mix well. A spell DESIGNED to fuck with magic should be easy-peasy!
Get the Top gypsy mystic IN SECRET (there's a mole) to enchant the ring other posters have offered you to consider buying her. She touches it/puts it on aaaand-WHAMMO!

What he said, you got to more pro-active. Aggressively pro-active. It may even work out. After all she was allowed to basically do whatever the fuck she wanted in her solo adventures you need to try to get some of that treatment. Hell, the dms may not let you die just from the point that she may like having you as her own personal villain.

Though one thing, don't bother with the revenge plan that she thinks you have. You know "bring you down, beaten and broken again." She tipped her hand when she let you know that is what she is frightened of and thinks you are doing. But you aren't playing that game. You are playing to kill her. No vengeance cycle, no prisoner, just a corpse. You have an advantage, it is a lot easier to just kill someone than pick apart their lives and leave them broken. Hell, if you can get mobile again a one way assassination could be pretty satisfying.

PS, ditch that fucking chair she gave you.

>> No.12717007


It's true most of the suspicions against her have been suppressed when they've popped up. But something as big as the rape and murder of Spain's heir, even in the wrong hands would likely runaway and perhaps even cause a war.

This is a big, big skeleton in her closet, and the door is creaking under it's weight.


Yeah I believe that's something I also need to look into. If she's to be believed, she considers them wonderful people and not to be killed, but I imagine that if she wanted to get at me but couldn't find me or whatever, then yeah my family would probably be the first to go.

I'm going to second this. From everything you've said so far it just seems as if she's become a DPC (no not a DMPC) and that a couple of the GMs have decided that she's too pivotal to the plot to be rid of and is therefore given certain types of information. I don’t think she does anything particularly clever (like setting up moles and the like) and she is simply handed the information necessary for her survival. If someone wants to kill another individual in a game (be it tabletop or even LARP) then it's very difficult for the intended victim to avoid their fate unless the GM tips them off or the people plotting the act are retarded or unlucky. Getting away with the murder is usually the hard part.

The time you actually did go to kill her (from what I remember in the last one of these threads) and she’d switched places that night or whatever I thought that the whole thing reeked of GM intervention.

Who knows, perhaps she'll die come the conclusion of the campaign (hell it may even be you who kills her) but I frankly can't foresee anything bad befalling her before that point, which kind of sucks really.

>> No.12717045

ah, but she is important- even if bigwigs in the government find out, and you show them the supporting evidence, they are more likely to side with her rather then you, if only to maintain stability and to avoid a war with Spain

True, that would destroy her main link to Spain, but I don't think I could be as evil as to kill an infant. What more, the offspring (despite the circumstances) of a good, now deceased friend. Killing the baby would be killing all that's left of him in the world, even if it is steeped in anguish and hate.


Well I can say that we don't play like that, but then it doesn't seem like it would matter.

All I can say is, I don't believe everyone in the whole group would be out to get me. Plus I should like to imagine that IRL she would afford me the same respect as we did her.

Then again I could be being played like a fiddle...


Again it could be possible that she's being favored, but I don't believe so.

As for the switching places thing, she just spent a fate point to get some inkling that it might be good if she didn't sleep in her bed that night.

Drop the investigation
Begin looking into establishing political connections with those who would oppose That Girl and what she stands for (aristocaracy, The suppression of Civil liberties, etc.)
Hook up with people who are dissatsified with the current state of things, or are being persecuted (Gypses, Jews, Poles, etc)
Help forge the disparate forces into a viable political force- at the very least something that is recognized
Become a political figure
One too well known for her to simply "Disappear"
Using the resources at hand- fight for political representation, the end of Junker Nobility, etc. while at the same time gaining magical allies
Whip up public frenzy- against That girl or her allies in general
Level your charges against her either anonymously or personally
Hold on for the ensuing political shit storm

If you restructure your suggestion from "gain massive amounts of magical power" to "surround yourself/build an alliance of people capable of massive amounts of magical power", then yes, that's quite reasonable advice and something I can do.

Again, short of magical artifacts or like... selling my soul, there's no way to gain massive amounts of magic for someone like me in a short amount of time. As previously stated, only the outsider has been capable of such a feat, and she's locked up somewhere.


Well I was going to deliver the evidence straight to Spain. If I ever build a solid case that is.

I'm sorry to say OP that I don't think you will succeed, for one simple reason

I doubt the GM will be willing to go and create all the necessary NPCs and take the time to play out your interactions with them when the rest of the group is off doing something else- they will instead just focus on the other group and tell you "Nope- doesn't exist/too difficult to get,"

Christ, it sounds like the only reason that she's keeping you alive is because she used to fancy you.

Well, if I were you, I'd call her on it. She goes on about how she's working to save Europe, well just give a standard 'The ends don't justify the means' speech, with the means being rape and murder. Then call tell her the only reason you've still pursuing her isn't to complete some delusional revenge fantasy (and by that I mean she's delusional for suggesting it) but but to bring a murder and rapist to justice, and if she calls you on not following due process by trying to murder her, just say 'Justice, not law'. All in all, call her out for being a psychopath who doesn't care about Europe, but just judges a man's value on how happy it makes her feel, and you could never leave Europe in the hands of someone like that.

I think there's a lot of justification for the whole psychopath thing, or at keeping people alive for her own amusement. She'll either kill you, torturer you to death, or have some awesome moment of repentance and become your waifu.

They did the same thing for her when she was in the same situation.

If I get even an inkling that they're not playing fair, I'm not going to continue this character and roll a new one.


It's pretty open-ended. If we want something, and can provide even a flimsy reason why and maybe how it should work, then we can get it.


Actually, the only problem is that while she's used the system and aristocracy to gain her power, she's all about civil rights and helping the people, actively seeking to get legislature passed that favors social reform, and in general, putting large amounts of money into the economy and helping people wherever she can.

The people love her, it's the higher ups that don't like her, either because they know she's not all she seems, because of her radical positions and actions, or just because she's a woman richer and potentially more powerful than them, or a combination of reasons.

While my superiors don't want me involved with her and have taken an uninvolved stance towards her, they'd love to see her out of the picture. Same as with Spain. They're only keeping her around because she makes people happy and supportive, and because she's given them a new heir to raise. Also because she's kept her fingers mostly out of their business.

I am not saying you should sell your soul I am saying you should sell your services. Your plan of getting revenge may be enough to cause WWI. By being clever you can that fact to make a bargain with fey such as " I will kill "that girl" to cause a great war to beat back the tide of civilization in exchange in exchange for magical power to kill her."

I'm not sure if this has been suggested to you yet, but, this girl is heavily augmented in a pre-WWI setting, and these augments are fairly durable judging by the stuff she has pulled.

We play in person.

She's showing up to interact with my game, naturally.

Which, in and of itself wouldn't seem fair, but that option was always afforded to us when she was solo-ing, we just never considered doing it.


I suppose freeing the outsider is a course of action I could take. It probably wouldn't be any harder than stealing "that girl's" baby.

The issue with that is, that while I could free her, and potentially gain massive (like, unmatched) magical power, and made perhaps the most powerful ally, I will have effectively made myself an enemy of the world.

My country, Europe, the gypsies, Nemo, everyone. There probably couldn't be a more dangerous option, but it would result in the greatest power in the short term.


I can still go to America. If I join up with Nemo, I can probably head wherever I want. China, Australia, Africa, America, etc...

Or I could just chart a normal trip there, but it might be hard starting from scratch.


Yes, that seems to be her thing. As I said, in my current situation, I'm in my room and afraid to turn out the light because it's entirely possible that she could come in the night and do whatever she wanted with me.

Kill me, or next time I see her, carrying my character's child.

Something like that, would have to be very powerful.

However you're right, it would work, she'd be reduced to the crippled mess we left her in.

An interesting prospect...


All of those things are wholly viable, and because they're artifacts/items, not only could I use them without magic aptitude, but I could tech myself up and not have to worry.


That would be deviously wonderful...


Also something I can look into. Assuming "that girl" holds to her word and doesn't kill me, and I can regain my life simply in mediocrity, then I'll see if I can't build my rep with the gypsies more, perhaps they can start introducing me to more magically gifted people or entities.

I just have two cents to add. If magic takes forever to learn, and you don't want to sell your soul for more power, what if...you turned to science for help? I know you've established that science clashes with magic in this setting, and that Nemo-tech REALLY messes it up, but it makes you wonder: They have enough of an understanding of magic to make stuff like anti-magic fields and shielding, right? One could infer that if given someone as broken as you as a test bed for new technology, a magic-amplifier or magic extraction device wouldn't be too far out of the question. Sure, you wouldn't be steampunk/magic Batman.....but you could be magitech Superman. (Or was it simply the presence of such advanced technology that makes magic not work, and not an intentional effect? Meh, whatever, my two cents.)
