92- Pro-Techie

Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali sighs and looks around a little. "That does bring up a good point, however stupidly: how are we going to find this cult?"
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari taps her chin. "We should probably gather some information on the local population and see what leads develop."
Joe: [GR-210] "Right-o! Okay it's time to gather information! Bailey and Danielle will round up the townsfolk and I'll ask the questions. Kali and Mari will be in charge of slowly cutting off people's fingers so they know we're serious!"
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey shrugs. "The doc said he'd beh settin' us up with fake credentials an' such. Figure'd tha'd come with a contact er two."
Kyle: [OOC] Before anyone asks, I am not finding a way to accent the word 'credentials'.
Dane: [GM] The information you were given by Dr. Graham points you to go speak to a woman named Jenise Langley, a farmer in the northern hills. She's your 'in' with the cult.
Joe: [GR-210] "Right then! Change of plans. We'll round up this one person, then cut off her fingers to show we're serious."
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle looks at her fidgeting hands and mutters to herself. "We should start with the pinkie since it's the smallest. Save the thumb for last..."
Kyle: [OOC] Okay, is it seriously too late to get that lab tech from a little bit ago instead of Danielle? Did she even have a name? Lets just call her Techie. I want Techie.
Soo: [OOC] I'm fairly pro-Techie, but I consider myself a swing voter.
Ian: [OOC] Someone could log some points in order to get her on the team.
Dane: [GM] You people barely remember you have one NPC follower, I'm not letting you get another.
Joe: [OOC] But we'll feed it and walk it every day!
Dane: [GM] Not till you finish your vegetables!
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari sighs. "I think we can accomplish this entire process without cutting off anyone's fingers."
Joe: [GR-210] GR does a little loop. "Oh sure, we CAN get this done without pointless and sadistic brutality, but do we WANT to?"
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "YES."
Joe: [OOC] Come on. It'll be cool. Just like that scene in Reservoir Dogs.
Ian: [OOC] I think you're thinking of the Alex Cross movie... not sure how you're confusing those.
Joe: [OOC] They're similar films.
Ian: [OOC] They're literally 20 years apart in age, by completely different people and share absolutely no plot relation to each other.
Kyle: [OOC] We're spending way too much time on this subject.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari starts looking around. "Do you think this island has cab service or are we walking?"
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "It's a livestock industry island Mari, we might be able to get riding animals at least."
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "Yeah but i'sa sheepin' island."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] "Ooh, I wonder if we can get really sturdy sheep to ride."
Ian: [OOC] Betcha Techie could have built us a cab. She's so cool.
Kyle: [OOC] Yeah. Remember that time at spring break? Techie was awesome.
Soo: [OOC] Remember when the rich old guy was going to bulldoze the youth center but Techie won the surfing contest and saved the day?
Dane: [GM] Stop elevating background characters in my lore!
Joe: [OOC] We could just go back to killing them all instead.

  1. Oh man, the end of this part reminds me of a minor background character in the game of Dungeon World my siblings and I are playing currently.

    His name is Spuffy. He started out as a generic character whose only trait was being unusually boring, but the GM let one of the players develop him further for some reason. As things currently stand, he used to be a world-famous adventurer, but used magic to rewrite everyone's memory of his reputation and settled down in a sleepy town built atop the site where an incredibly powerful demon lies bound. Also, the demon is Spuffy's lovechild, conceived collectively by all of the participants of a massive orgy between Spuffy and many, many demons. If Spuffy goes too far from town or is ever killed, then the demon lovechild will break free and the world will end.
