May I join?
I'm going to say yes, since we've had a player drop out recently anyway.

While we're at it, I'd like to ask something of everyone. Surely, you've all noticed that updates are getting more scarce and, frankly, we're not getting fucking anywhere with the current stuff that's going on. Mostly, I think the whole "invasion of a different dimension" thing just hasn't worked out nearly as well as I hoped. I even thought of having you lot go to said dimension, but by now I'm starting to think that that's a seriously bad idea. So what do you guys say we sort of, kind of, slightly just rush through the entire thing and get to being heroes with actualy cartoony villains attacking the city instead?

Also, you may have noticed that the individual writeups are getting smaller and slightly more minimalist. It's basically my way of dealing with having a large group of people who are each doing their own seperate thing. So, question two is, do you each want to stay seperate and get small texts, or do you want us to forms groups and get bigger texts?

Hmm, while I want to stay seperate, Diane is a character I just made randomly, which is why I just put such random actions. However, the rush to superheroes idea sounds nice.

I'm cool with whatever.

My character's name is Damien Smith, and he goes by the call sign Watcher. He's a hacker, but he's also no slouch when it comes to physical confrontations.

((Skipping to cartoony villains is fine. Seems like the invasion is one of those things that might have worked if we were already established as a group, like the Avengers. As for the group thing, I'm fine with whatever.))

Pushing for the meat of the thread sounds like a good plan, especially if you're not feeling up to the current arc. It does feel a little soon for Cerebus syndrome to be setting in, and these guys seem like a more serious enemy, so maybe having the forces retreat for some reason to come back at a later time (or not) would be better...

I would be fine with the cartoony villains and with actually forming a group, we all kind of got through our tutorial part I think. I always liked this game anyways.

(I'm fine with cartoony villains as well.  All I was doing right now was trying to set myself up a leader of a large anti-choking cult.  If I succeeded, I would have used them to swarm and conquer that cult that Jim met at the beginning of his obsession Heimliching career.)

Go to the local printery, design and buy 100 anti-choking posters, and start posting them all over town.

Just popping in to say that I haven't forgotten about this. I was going to do the update where we change some stuff this afternoon, but I've had a long day and I'm feeling pretty sick. Tomorrow I get home late as well, so no promises I'll do the update then. Friday for sure.

Dive at the remaining eyeballs from the direction of the sun to mask my approach. Cut them up.
You dive at the remaining eyeballs, slicing them up without much of a problem. You look down.

You see a large portal, faint blue outlines marking its edges. In the middle, you can see a fuzzy image of a different world. A man in black robe looks up, straight at you. He calmly steps inside the portal, and it closes.

-48 hours later-

All of you sit in your appartment, watching the news. Even Superdavid, who has been assigned a new appartment by the City Council.

"The police reports that the last of the violent creatures have either been contained or neutralized, and that is now safe for citizens to go outside. The shelters have emptied out by now and reparations are slowly getting started up. The Council has expressed their thanks to both our men in blue, the people from Hercules Corp. and the freelancers who played a part in saving our city from destruction. In light of these recent events, the Council has announced that it will work together with Hercules Corp. to better safeguard our city from future events by enacting the Guardian program."


-Two weeks later-
A courier drops off a package at each of your homes. It comes from the Council. Inside are a very expensive and rugged looking smartphone and a letter. It reads:

"Greetings.

In light of your former accomplishments and role in recent events, the Council has decided to invite you to join the Guardian program. You will become an official hero, with regular pay and benefits according to your accomplishments. Should you wish to join you must simply activate the included smartphone, open the hero app and scan your thumbprint. From this app, you can check your ranking and hero status, as well as get direct reports of crimes or other disturbances that need attention.

Signed,

The Council."

The package even includes phone cases in all kinds of colours, neat.

Damien will take the phone and activate it, after searching it for bugs. If no bugs are found, he will open the hero app and scan his thumbprint. "So, they managed to find me, huh? Impressive." After signing up, he walks over to his couch and turns on the TV. When he hears the snippet about the people disappearing in Residential District 6, he frowns. Looks like he's got his first job. Grabbing his hat, coat, bandanna mask, and hacking phone, he heads out to the district in question to ask a few people about the disappearances.

"Ooohhhh, I'm now an official hero! OHMIGODOHMIGOD!!!!" Diane momentarily freaks out, and then grabs the smartphone. She then opens the hero app, still jumping for joy inside, and scans her thumbprint. It says: Dayonecia "Diane" Washington. "They know my real name?" Diane wonders in confusion, and then starts to check what disturbances there are. She sees the news about the cruise ship, and shouts:"Magical Music Maiden powers, ACTIVATE!" After transforming, Diane goes to her closet, to get her costume.
After changing, Diane sets off, singing "You Can't Hurry Love", to the harbor.
