Otherwise known as Edgy Anime QuestAhhh, why hello there! It has been some time since the last telling of my tale!The Tale of AkumaIn the year 1400 the beginnings of a holy war between our goodly demons of destruction and murder, and the wretched dogs of God...In the midst of this, we follow the story of one demon among the many, known as Faefnir by his peers. His human-skin the shape of a once-farmboy known as Jacob, and his power source, a once-baker known as Claire, he has come to his senses as a LV mechanical demon. Otherwise known as an Akuma.We last left off in this dazzling tale of doom and despair with Jacob's imprisonment, his innocent heckling of a disfigured guardsman, and the murder of said guardsman's brother in a try for freedom of himself, and the Lady Noah confined in the jail.However, all is not so easy. She is locked by shackles that restrain her magical power, and he must acquire a key! So, donning the flesh of the former heretic human, he sets up the stairs to procure the key... Coming out of the flaming remains of the once-prison that is.So, we carry on, from right where we left off.Guide Faefnir on his journey for the most righteously evil glory imaginable!This is the story thus far!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestThese are your current stats and abilities as of now!http://pastebin.com/CuLptHELAnd Something pertaining to your allies! <3http://pastebin.com/49TZ3QUn
You feel something in you change.. as though your memory banks just expanded dramatically... Enough for you to register the parameters of a whole other human-form... You smile wickedly at the thought..You bow before Morgan with some exaltation," My lady, I am the worst kind of monster.. A Baker.." You smile gently and pull bread out of the oven within your chest and offer it to her,"And the best, your monster."The woman takes a bite out of the bread and smiles widely," Oh, hoh? It's good.. Quite good. Do what you can to free me then, will you?" She raises an eyebrow, as though she's the one in control here with all the mess of the smog and more.You stroll out of her cell and open up your jaws as you expand into your dragon form, gobbling the man up without running your saws. The metal doesn't go down easy, however you register his entire physical appearance, including his armor.With a return to your human form, you switch settings to Rickton Asher and soon find yourself a few inches taller, wearing a visored helm and having the voice of a horrible god-fearing monster. Then again, what's new?You run your way up the stairs, metal upon stone and then metal upon wood.
You run up the stairs, trying to become properly accustomed to your armor, as you set about no less than seven men standing around the door to the stairs, swords drawn. One of them being... Byron Asher, as you recall?You reach for the man as he unwittingly allows you to move his sword away."Brother! The whore witch..." You take a moment to cough, hack even," She set her cell aflame..." More hacking,"Even the STONE burns... She was laughing... laughing like a madman.. We need to move her out of there.. Do you have the key?""Why..." The metallic gurgle of the man whispers through, yet you know the drill."There is no time! She needs to be moved before the High Priest comes! Would you tell him that we killed the witch without his blessing?!"The Silver-rose-crossed man stares at you for a few moments. You are so glad that these two are clad in full armor.."Here." He fumbles with the key, and the wheels in your head are already turning for the next part of this...You can taste your freedom... so close..."Hold there." Yet so far.You turn to see the sword-less knight that brought you down to the jail in the first place.."I felt the Talismans weaken. Specifically the ones in the cell and upon the demon-suspect. What happened down there?" The man's voice isn't accusatory. Yet. However he demands an explanation for your- the "prisoner's" actions.> Tell him the "truth." Rickton Asher, your current disguise chose to be a touch incompetent...> Blame it on the witch's power.> Claim that the "demon" broke free.> (Other/Write in)>Snatch the key and run...
>>25664607> Tell him the "truth"Say that the demon-suspect got a bit uppity with you and that you may have overworked the talismans showing him who was boss.
>>25664636I like this
>>25664607[X] Blame it on the witch's power."Next time some whore witch decides to set the room across from her on fire I'll be sure to keep the Talismans in pristine fucking condition for you. Now give me the key so I can get her out of there and to a secure location. All of you, stay up here, guard this staircase and any entrances into the building to make sure none of the heretics and demons get past me in case something happens down there and that the whore doesn't have any friends coming in to help her."
>>25664698>>25664636Combination of the two. Say that while you were punishing the demon-suspect, the witch somehow exploited the fluctuation in power to set the room ablaze.
>>25664607Blame it on the witch power. It works well with our story.
>>25664607>tell him the "truth""Okay, so maybe I overworked the talismans on him. The cheeky bastard was trying to act all macho. I put him in his fucking place."
You peer at the mage-knight through your helm, eyeing him intently, though you can't help but to snarl a bit as they can't see your expression."I was punishing the prisoner as he was getting a bit uppity. I have less patience than my brother after all."The man promptly plants a hand on your shoulder and glares at you intently,"You should not have overcharged the Talismans, that does not explain why-""The fucking witch took advantage of the weakness and set the room ablaze!" You throw the man's hand off of your shoulder and glare at your "brother" with a hand out."Now give me the goddamn key so I can get the witch out of there!"Byron begins to fumble with removing the key from his belt once more only this time for that man that interrogated you to step forward and put a hand upon the exorcist's shoulder."Rickton Asher, you won't be freeing the Witch, Byron, head on down there, make up for your brother's failure."It's always something with these people, isn't there?The exorcist looks away from you and nods to the man. Seems like you know who's in charge now... The Mage-knight backs down and other knights of the Red Cross salute as He heads down into the jail, despite the fire. In your heart, there is a touch of panic, this isn't the most... ideal situation.> Ignore orders and rush on down after him.> Stand at attention, wait for him to bring Morgan up.> Creep away, try to at least get out of this building...> Strike the "commander" when he isn't looking.> (Other)>Only three people here are noteworthy, the exorcist, the commander, the mage-knight, and two others that bear the red cross. Your own armor in fact, does not bear that mark, whatever it means...
>>25664868Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuckity fuck. Shouldn't have said we overcharged them. [X] Ignore orders and rush on down after him."I'm going to make sure he doesn't fuck it up, and that the rest of the prisoners don't use this as a chance to act up or try anything."
>>25664868I'd say creep away, try to get out of the building
>>25664936I don't think we should leave without Morgan, we need to get her out nowish before the Head Priest gets into town, and we have no idea where they'll take her next after this.
>>25664922I am more than certain that the guy who commanded us outranks us, and that our "brother" is more competent then us. I think acting like that would just seem highly suspicious.
>>25664954I'm not saying we'll be gone for long. after we leave, we turn back into our other form, see if we can find Madeleine in that pub, and then come back with her.
> Strike the "commander" when he isn't looking.I think this is our best option to get Morgan out of here and destroy these exorcists.
>>25665053there is only one exorcist, so he has the highest threat level. I'd say next is the Mage-Knight, then the commander, then the other 2.
>>25665053That seems like a bad plan, if we open hostilities right now we're outnumbered, we don't know the capabilities of our enemies, and our cover is absolutely blown.
>>25664868I don't think we should leave the place, even for a minute. We can't really wait around either. We could attack the guards around us or leave the room and start a fire at another place in the building to create a distraction.
>>25665087I still think that we should at least quickly go to the pub and get Madeleine.also, it would be nice to know how much time has passed since we were put into the jail. I have a feeling that if it's night, they have already found our camp. there may be casualties on our side.
>>25665114I doubt they got hit tonight, and given that the majority of the knights and the Exorcist are here they should be just fine.
>>25665114Your internal clock indicates it was roughly an hour or two. So it's still around miday, just starting into the afternoon.Schwere, Kama, and the children should still be in camp. Madeleine should be at one of the pubs. Ivan was last searching for the outsider Akuma's hidey hole. Armbrust was commanded to fix the wagon or check out the town.. Madeleine's likely not at the pub now though...
>>25665167I would also like to point out that when our "brother" Exorcist gets down there, he will see that the fire was in our cell, there is no body in our cell, and that the bars to the witches cell have been torn off.
>>25665224yup, we gotta strike now or the opportunity is lost.
>>25665213god damnit. she just HAD to be a tart now, didn't she?
>>25665241okay, while I agree that we should strike now, I think we should get the mage knight first then the commander.
>>25665224You melted through the bars of your own cell. The door to Morgan's was opened by Rickton.
>>25665271ah, okay, but still no body. highly suspicious.
>>25665246Her tart ways aren't why she's not likely to be there...>“I'll visit you in the bakery!” She runs on into town without a second care.
I'll narrow down the options...> Stay and wait for an opportunity to present itself.> Strike now before they have a chance to react!
>>25665312hm.... this might actually be good then... means we might have back up on the way.
> Strike now before they have a chance to react!
>>25665331[X] Stay and wait for an opportunity to present itself.Though personally I'm an advocate of heading down there, ostensibly under the excuse that some of the prisoners might get uppity during the chaos, or the Witch might somehow fuck with the Talismans on them and their cell bars.
>>25665331strike now.I will now admit that we are hitting the panic button.
>>25665331Strike now. Really, the biggest threat is currently out of the room, so lets take this opportunity to bake some knights.
Huh, apparently I missed a thread.
>>25665331Maximum panic button. Go for the exorcist first.
>>25665433no no NO. the exorcist left the room. we might be able to handle him on our own, but not with these other guys attacking us. I'm especially worried about that mage-knight.
>>25665411Edgy Anime Quest 9.>>25665406>>25665366>>25665346You have chosen to strike now, while the greatest threat is out of the room!What is your choice of action?>Target>Everyone> Priority: Mage-knight> Priority: Commander>(Other)>Method> Chaisaw Maws> Flame-Cloak> Fireball> Halberd>(Other)>Strategy> Cull the weak.> Shock and Awe> Subtlety.> Brute force..> (Other)
> Priority: Mage-knight> Chaisaw Maws> Priority: Commander> Halberdwe have two weapons. Lets use both.
>>25665524Everyone and as much fire as possible. If they don't burn they'll suffocate.
>>25665524[X] Priority: Mage-knightSecond priority is Commander.[X] Chainsaw MawsWe've snuck up close as hell to them with this disguise. Strategy, confusion and chaos! Start by having fires, smoke, and ash, start to propagate in the area. Blame the whore witch's presence and distract them, look innocent. Then start the culling inside of the smoke cloud with flame cloak on spreading poison and ash everywhere, eat heads off and flame cloak while keeping up Rickton's voice of fighting against the monster and screaming about demons.
>>25665587sounds like a plan.
>>25665524Priority: Mage-knight. Method: fireball and gravity. stategy: shock and awe.I assume the mage knight has armor, which will help us.
>>25665570I agree with him. Lets jump the Mage knight before he can cast any spell.
>>25665587I like this one.
>>25665587Interesting...Adjusted DC... This is saving your asses from something like a 90 DC... Please roll 1d100.

>>25665721Not coming out unscathed, yes... However if you wish to use your trigger of Devil's Luck to turn this in a crit, something nice will happen...
>>25665754... fuck it I say use our retroactive.
Rolled 49>>25665754Lets do that. Then we can upgrade it for another trigger later.
>>25665754Wait we can do that for rolls after first three?Captcha: ubuses advantage
>>25665754No reason not to milord.
>>25665784Take it as a roll for "luck." In a very bad situation.
>>25665754not exactly sure that using our one retroactive cut off this early is a good idea, but... WHO CARES!? WE FULL PANIC MODE.
>>25665754I like nice things. Do it.Also, need to upgrade that ability soon. It's just... So useful!
>>25665800Don't worry we're using it to murder a room full of people and therefore should be able to upgrade with xp once fight is over.
>>25665754I come into the thread and we're about to hit the panic button. I can only say, let's see how far the hole we can go.
oh, also, we should just start archiving now, so that we aren't hit by THAT GUY again.
A man upon a horse rides hard and fast across the cold land to deliver a letter. Traveling over a mountain-pass. His steed steps upon a stray stone and they both tumble over the edge.The fall breaks the seal, the decree opens. An armistice is never delivered.A shiver travels through your spine as the man dies in the cold.>A sinister force regards you once more.
>>25665915> I'll have you know that the results of these events will be seen...
>>25665866I seriously doubt that we'll manage to murder the whole room. we have three fails, and one crit success that happened after the fact, which I'm fairly sure we're only being allowed to use because we'd literally die instantly if we didn't. I don't think there will be much experience gain here.
>>25665946so you mean the baby who's life we stole will be relevant?awesome
>>25665978I think he's refering to the armistice which is not delivered.

Smoke billows into the chamber from the jail-cellar, causing some of the knights to hack into a coughing fit, some reach for cloth to filter the smog, the Mage-knight begins to mumble incantations. You back away and conjure flames to cause tables, chairs, weapons-racks to spontaneously combust.You jump at the results of your own actions, feigning surprise," Dear God! The witch's power has extended even out here!" "Put out those fires!" The commander shouts, unfazed by the smoke as of yet."Working on it, sir." mumbles the mage-knight, he continues mumbling incantations.You creep backward into the smoke and with grim devotion, you realize this is it, it's now or never.You don your flame cloak and begin burning your blood to conjure up a good smog to hamper their vision as you begin screaming," Damn witch, she's set me ablaze!" You writh for a moment, and lunge at the first, and nearest knight, exploding your dragon-form out of the human shell, the cramped space hindering your movement a bit... It is now that you're grateful for your agile body.You open your maws upon the head of one such unfortunate knight, only to have your maw blocked by a blade that cuts through the smoke, and has hooked into one of the chains within your maw."Should have known it was the work of a demon!" It's the commander's voice, this is his sword. You turn your saws on and they rip for heartbeat before being stopped short by the blade in your jaws."Change the incantation to one for destruction!" He bellows out to the mage.You sense distortions in your smog as the other 2 Red Crosses flank you.Flailing about and trying to pull away from the commander, you summon up your halberd and thrust it out at one of the mages, only for it to hold onto it after the spike's poked into his armor.You lash out with a fireball and fling it at the other mage, the explosion takes that one by surprise, forcing him back.
The commander smashes his shield into your head, bashing in the area around your eye.You force yourself back once more and he takes the distance you've given him. Bashing his shield against your head once more, as you thrash to no avail."En Ba!" You hear, before seeing 10 talismans marked with burning crosses assemble themselves before you, quickly charging.You see the knight upon you left his shield and leave his blade in your jaws only then as her leaps back despite the armor. You relinquish your grip upon the halberd to direct an explosive gout of flame magic forward to counteract the blast.You are blown backward, straight through the stone, and you hear people outside scream.Outside now, you see the bold Mage-knight and the commander leap out from the guard's barracks, like something inhuman.The Mage-knight to the side, the Commander at you with blade transfixed down and gripped with both hands. In that instant, you realize that he means to impale you.You attempt to force yourself out of the way only to realize that your wings have been smashed, your maw is nearly gone from the blast, and you only have one arm left.You struggle to get away, yet the man comes down steadily.You see your own death before your eyes. A man in shining armor, a red cross, and an illuminated blade.You stare him head on, only to have a shadow finally block your view, and turn gold.It roars and knocks the man back. Leaning up, you realize that it's Madeleine, in her brand new level 2 form.She glances back to you, a reptilian eye with black schlera among her golden aura,"Faefnir, can you move?""Yes... Though not well.""The others are back home. I came when I saw the flames. No Ivan-""We fight or we run, right?"> No, we need to fight. Noah in danger..> Yes, we need to regroup, I'm in no condition to go on.> (Other)
> No, we need to fight. Noah in danger..
>>25666570>[X] No, we need to fight. Noah in danger.."Or at the very least distract them long enough to grab her and get out of there."
>>25666570> No, we need to fight. Noah in danger..We need to get one of the gang to be Akumedic. possibly Ivan since he's pretty bro tier
>>25666570[X] No, we need to fight. Noah in danger..If we don't kill them now they'll move her to another area, or kill her without a trial.
>>25666570Fight, noah in danger
>>25666570regroup>>25666589>>25666631>>25666637>>25666652are you people insane? we're no way going to survive this if we fight, and then we won't be able to get the noah out of danger. besides, they're going to blame everything on us, she'll probably just be moved.
>>25666570Rescue Noah kill bitches later, we gotta get our priorities straight
You have chosen to fight.Chainsaw maws, out of commission. Polearm, relinquished.One arm left, no wings.You have access to your furnace-Heart Magic, crappy Pressure Cannon, and tail.None of the other knights have pursued like these two have.It's likely that the explosion in their compound did a number on them...What's the plan?Madeleine is in full form, and while you aren't sure of hat her ability is, her defensive and offensive capabilities have no doubt improved.
>>25666570>OtherEVACUATE NOAH, GRAB AND RUN LIKE HELL I HAVE THE FLAG SHAZBOT VGTG
>>25666736Make restorative bread if possible. If not then make buffing bread for Madeline and just hose down the building with our cannons.
>>25666736What CAN we do with furnace-heart magic?Let Madeleine do the heavy lifting for now regardless. We can pressure cannon stuff for now
>>25666736get to the noah at earliest opportunatie, then use our wings to get her out of there. we'll have to trust madeleine to be able to escape on her own when the time comes, unfortunately the noah takes priority over our family.
>>25666771Flame cloak, flame breath, Fireball. and any other applications along those lines. It's rather potent at your lv for being a 4th rank skill.
>>25666736Start creating smoke while coating the knights in the blood oil. While using what agility we have left, attempt to soak the insides of their armor, and once they are sufficiently coated start the flames.
>>2566673600 Locate Noah first01 if noah accosted by knights, get them away from her02 grab noah03 run like hell04 if pursued, evasive action05 goto 03
so we play mage to madeline's tank? That sounds good to me.
>>25666736First, give Madeleine Black Bread.Maybe try to heal with some of our own Bread. Restorative Bread shouldn't be outside our capabilities. We keep our distance from the enemies spewing poisonous flames at them, fireballs, providing a smoke cover for us and Madeleine to use, and otherwise support from the back.First priority is to locate the Noah, Madeleine ought to be able to draw him off for a bit, we get Morgan, get out of there, and we hightail it something fierce.
>>25666807What about something along the lines of a cutting torch?
>>25666736I vote that we have Madeleine keep them busy for a moment. meanwhile, we gather up a big breath, and make a VERY loud roar, breathing fire into the sky. Hopefully, our family will see it and realize that something has gone wrong.
>>25666736> 1. Use a smokescreen to hide you and Madeline. > 2. Have Madeline be a distraction while returning to the castle and find the Noah.> 3. Get the hell outa dodge and run like hell
>>25666809Forgot to mention, this coating is to be done using the pressure cannon. After all closing in only ended badly for us.
>>25666833Baguette has been learned. Would you like to assign restorative properties to it?>It will not be an instant fix. However it will begin the process of repair.>I'll add in "Ash charges" as a little stat. Black Bread will require 1 Ash charge. 2 Ash charges will be needed for Baguette if this is its ability.>Oven upgrades will increase Ash capacity.
Roll 1d100 for search and rescue!
>>25666833I like this plan, let's do it after we do this >>25666857 it's good to have support
>>25666920Sure we shall have our hard to spell French bread of restoration.

>>25666983ah well, doesn't matter anyway. it's still a crit success and a crit fail, no matter what.
Rolled 31>>25667004That was when we switched it off. Also does it work out that the 99 trumps the 5 by being closer to its' extreme end of the dice?

>>25667151wait don't we have an ability to call our allies to assist wherever they are?
>>25667190I'm pretty sure we're fighting all of them.
>>25667029But we crit succeeded before we crit failed, and by a higher degree (99 is only one short of 100, whereas 5 is 4 short of 1).So we get to live right?
>>25667226No, something silly happens,.
>>25667215yeah, so I say we call in our back up. Roar like the fearsome dragon we are.

>>25667226Do correct me if I'm wrong, oh Deliciously Deceitful Duke, but I'm fairly sure that crits don't really have a "degree". They're just crits.
>>25667284hey, something silly could be a GOOD thing.
You force yourself up with one of your half-scorched claws and let broken chains tumble out of your maw. They'll replace themselves soon enough. "Noah here, we get her and leave." You utter out in a low growl, for only her to hear."She chuckles, her body ready and her voice husky," Easier said than done you know."The Commander stands before the two of you, the mage-knight inching around to the side, even under Maddy's scrutiny.She cracks her fingers and rotates her neck for another mechanical pop. "Mage left, knight-forward, time for a dance."You coil yourself around and spew your blood-oil at the mage, hacking it out like a projectile vomit.The man stops moving and screams," What in the bloody hell is this?! I just got this cape washed last week! You bloody ruined it!""Pipe down Ser Jarvis! Just a damn cape! Get back at-"You fling your spewwage at the commander, cutting him off and causing him to go silent."Enough!"You see an explosion of flames erupt from the barracks, and Morgan walk out from the flames, her head bleeding into her eyes,"Fucking miserable sod wouldn't unhand me when I rightly said he should." She wipes the blood from one of her eyes and looks back and forth between you, Madeleine, the commander, and Ser Jarvis."Oh my, hey now, this... this really isn't what it looks like." She rolls her eyes for a moment and lazily screams," Ahhh, help, help, monsters are attacking the guards!" Her expression folds into a bit of a sly smile," But really, you've been poor hosts."Madeleine points a single, finger at the lady coming out of the fire," I take it SHE'S our Noah?"Relief flows over you, "Indeed, that's our Noah...""Say, what's that smell.. Is that... Is that Oil? How delightful!" Morgan snaps her fingers and the two knights go up in a conflagration, screaming as the oil bakes them within their armor.She hops down from the rubble as Madeleine cackles and you let out your own hurt chuckle at the loss of human life.
>>25667337Well, that's awfully convenient. I think we should get out of here about now with her.
Morgan pats Maddy upon the chest and you upon what's left of your snout," I still don't know exactly what's going on here, but that metal-voiced gentleman is still quite alive and I'm more than certain he's angry with me. Shall we?" She offers an arm to be escorted, only to realize that neither of you are really even in the "form" for such etiquette."Ah, nevermind."> Hightail it out of here.> Stay to finish off the exorcist.> Time to burn the town down, right?> (Other)

>>25667396finish off that damn exorcist and then high tail it out of there. let's not give him the chance to become a nemesis.
>>25667396Hightail it out of here. Then come back with backup for the burning.
>>25667396[X] Hightail it out of here.Nope, no risks right now, not with a Noah with us. We can come back for the Exorcist after regrouping if it's that important."Milady, would you care for a ride? I promise I will be a most excellent mount."Lower ourself so she can clamber onto us, and then we get the fuck out of there with all due haste carrying her with us.
>>25667396Light as much up as you can when we bolt
>>25667396Hightail it outa here. We have the Noah and we must complete the good doctors mission over our own personal enjoyments >Inb4 something like this happens
>>25667396Resident Exorcist, reporting. Sorry I'm late, dear Duke. You know how things can be, cursed with the luck of the damned and all that. Atleast my dog is still on my side...> Hightail it out of here. With a side of FIRE EVERYWHERE while we run. If we are in any shape to fly, we should carry lady Morgan, so we can move quick as we can.
>>25667396>> Hightail it out of here.While I'd love to gank the Exorcist, I fear Faefnir is in no shape. Sure, Madeline is solid and Morgan the Noah has discovered a delicious new set of powers, but I'm not sure these alone would be enough to take out an Exorcist. Securing the Noah for Our Beloved Duke is priority one. We can always have a family dinner of the fool afterwards
>>25667396[X] Hightail it out of here.Package secured. Time to scram.
>>25667396We got what we came for. Time to leave.
>>25667396Hightail it out of their, come back with family. kill exorcist. destroy town. leave no witnesses. try to get the baker and his family to join our family
If we do flee, we should return to gank the exorcist after regrouping. No way we're letting this one tell the others that there's an Akuma of our description who can apparently shapeshift into another human form. The less the Enemy knows, the better
>>25667396Be sure to tell the Noah what we know of the Doctor and the rest of the Noah clan.
>>25667496and when we gank the exorcist, let's let the family go on a killing spree. let's see if we can at least get the kids up to 1.5
>>25667428Hmm romancing a Noah. That could end up in all sorts of interesting places (with our survival chance varying directly with our success rate) varying from being fast tracked to lvl 4 to being destroyed for our impertinence slowly and painfully.
>>25667531we should make a point to specifically aid sechwere when we massacre the town.
>>25667587well a good story is always the one with a little(a lot) of risk :D
Don't forget to bring the bodies back with us. We need to keep our oil blood a secret if we can.
>>25667723They're toasty enough to not leave evidence
>>25667723we're going to kill everyone here. it'll be secret again by the end of the day.
>>25667587She likes fire, we like fire, she likes bread, we bake bread, we're gentlemanly, she's adorable and fun. It might work, it's not even about sex at this point, just enjoyable company.
>>25667772This can't end well
>>25667772I honestly think sex would be horrendously out of character for us, too much of a family man.
>>25667801ditto this, we aren't that kind of akuma.
>>25667772time to put on the moves >>25667801I'm not saying sex but having these two as a duo would be murderously hilarious
You bow your head down, and offer a part of your back to Morgan,"My lady, I would be honored to be your steed."The woman smiles at you, seeming ever more regal despite her rags. You notice that among her hair, there are only 3 stigmata opened up.Didn't the Doctor say there should be three?The woman laughs, cackling," Oh my, this isn't a dream, is it? My head's throbbing, I've got shakes and a monster just lent me its back! Whatever, let's see just where this goes, shall we?" She grabs a spinefrom your back and swings herself on."Plan Faefnir?" Madeleine bends down as she speaks to you, the men still screaming as they're baked alive. How wonderful..."We regroup with the family. Slaughter on the way back. If the exorcist is stupid, he'll walk right into our camp."Madeleine nods quickly, her reptilian lips pulled back into a smile, "Sounds fun, I'll watch the rear, you don't look good."Morgan laughs deliriously,"Oh, the cat speaks! Or is it an Alligator?! Calligator! Liodin?" She keeps on cackling and begins pounding onto the plates upon your back in her humor.You set off, spewing flames from your furnace heart even as Madeleine snatches people up to crush them or just beat them bloody with a punch. Her laughter is a roar and a hiss at once.Morgan keeps on cackling the entire way like a woman gone mad or a kid with candy, you can't quite pick the difference.A swathe of flame and destruction is cut through Ruinebriar and you soon find yourself back at camp with the awakening Noah...- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - "Faefnir. You are hurt..." Schwere's states the obvious," And... a woman? Is she..""Me! Hello! Are you a monster too! Seems monsters are the only company I'll be keeping in the days to come! good to meet you, I'm Morgan, Morgan Le Fey, and-"
>>25667833well, let's at least be her favorite akuma.
>>25667833we will be so smooth, we will be channeling Gus
>>25667881>only 3 stigmata opened up. Didn't the Doctor say there should be three?Is that a typo, or do we honestly not remember?
My good Earl what are your thoughts on the philosophical musings of this fine chap? I mean seriously it fits you almost perfectly.Also minor error in post talking about how there are 3 stigmata open when the Earl said there should be 3.
>>25667951well do we remember? cuz I dont
>>25667951well, the way the doctor said it, it sounded like there would only be one, but Noah actually have multiple stigmata in a line along there forehead
>>25667881Introduce Morgan to the "family" and prepare to hit the road or set up ambush for the exorcist
"Cover's been blown, we've rescued her, there's an exorcist. Time to make a second Temes."Schwere is taken aback for a moment, yet her stoic demeanor gives way to a psychotic smile," Time to kill then?""Ye-""Time to kill them all!" Kama calls out, her wolven form whirling into existence with her command of the wind.The children bark and howl, as Kralle tears apart her human-disguise and Wendel's explodes away likewise.Armbrust walks from the cart and peels away into his own form, you notice his arrow racks have an additional slot.."Comrades, time to prey!" Ivan bellows as his human-form unravels into the Archer-spider.Morgan claps her hands excitedly,"Oh, oooo more monsters! More monsters! Yes, kill them all! Kill all these wretched people that spat upon me!" She cackles, her head thrown back. She stops suddenly and dismounts, brushing off her rags," I'll be watching from here. Do what you all need to do!"The family is ready, the exorcist's power is unknown. You are still injured.>What's the plan of attack?>>25667951>That was a typo. >Though it could be said that you don't remember.> Do you remember?
>>25667994Set fire to the town starting from the outskirts. Close the circle and kill everything inside.
>>25667994let's enter stealth-mode and try to catch the exorcist off guard. if possible give the kill to sechwere, but not at the expense of safety. after that we can murder at our leisure, but I'd like to see the threat taken care of before we begin the fun in earnest.
>>25667994I honestly vote to stay with Morgan to protect and heal up while the family goes on a happy murder spree. I am suspicious we'll get TAKTICOL GENIOUSED by the exorcist.
>>25667994YOU HEARD HER, BOYS AND GIRLS! A Noah gave us our orders. We Move out, us and Schwere working together to get enough kills to regain our strength. Kama, you take the children and hunt around the outer edge of the town, let no one escape. Ivan, Armburst, and Madeleine, see if you can take care of the exorcist. if not, keep him busy until we get there.also, let's give Morgan some of our Black Baguette.
>>25668064stay with Morgan.
>>25667965Not quite familiar with the fellow. Though he does look like a gentleman, I'm uncertain if he knows how to have a rightly good time...
We should also reassure miss Noah that we mean her no harm since I have the sneaking suspicion that she may run off.
>>25668064well, to be frank, I think we'd be safer with the family if that's what you're worried about, though it probably would be a good idea to have SOMEONE guarding our noah. Be a pretty spectacular failure to let something happen to her now...
>>25668113your kidding, right? we have been way nicer than any of the humans in the town. I think she likes us.
>>25668143That's just the psychosis talking. Once she calms down she's going to start freaking out.
>>25668131she'll be fine by herself. she has her Noah powers. and Noah have pretty good regeneration
>>25668172no, she's a Noah. she is perfectly fine with it. she hates Humans.
>>25668096this. we should probably eat some too.
>>25668143That and she's completely batshit insane from all the torture that the Church did to her. I think we broke her last barrier when we went full dragon whoop ass on the guard that was going to rape her (again I think to).Hell I bet she thinks of us as some sort of warped Guardian Angel
>>25668172Personally I like her this way, her sense of humor is positively Delightfull!
Also, I'd like to point out that a Noah practically gave us orders. as Akuma we have to obey them
Awesome, almost forgot this quest was on today, glad to see I didn't miss it. Found this quest on suptg last week and thought it was pretty awesome, to the point where I have been inspired to attempt drawfaggotry again.I only started a few days ago and didn't finish it yet, and probably won't finish soon since I'll be busy the next couple of weeks, but here's a WIP, you glorious, magnificent, bastard, you.
>>25668099http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMTizJemHO8Oh you can't tell me you don't know what he's getting at:"What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk. Have at you!"
>>25667994Give Morgan a loaf of bread to start."Milady, your wish is our command, they shall burn." And gently take her hand and kiss it.For the murder spree, we give everyone loaves of bread to buff them. We start by setting fires, don't stand in one place, just burn and move one and let it burn down on its own. Kama and the children move as a group going after groups fleeing the fires. Schwere goes after the weak with her gravity and stays away from danger. Armbrust and Ivan get to high places and fill everything with arrows, especially watching the exits.Everyone stays mobile and unpredictable, don't fall into an observable pattern.If the Exorcist or other Church members are found they are not to be engaged, howl, run away, and harry them, do not fight the Exorcist directly, keep distance, attempt to learn his Innocence if possible.
>>25668236Hats off to you good sir Drawfag that is a beautiful piece of work.
>>25667994Morgan is just gonna bum around undefended.NOPE! We just nearly got killed saving her whimsical ass, no way in hell we're leaving her around to be kidnapped/murdered by an enemy. The Noah is priority one!
>>25668099He is Dracula from Castlevania. He is most famous for this little speech:http://youtu.be/7z65s0fqDw4He is also an elegant gentleman who summons Death itself as a partner for his boss fight in one of the games.
>>25668244Far too dramatic. We're a baker, not a dramatist.
>>25668236Pardon my french but...THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME.Ahem... Now, we need to formally a pply an ability to the Baguette.Baguette ability...What property would you like applied to it?> Hastening.> Restoration.> Flame Magic enhancing.> Gravity Magic enhancing.> Native ability enhancing. (cannot be applied to Faefnir.>(Other)
>>25668286We could hang back to defend and heal up a bit
>>25668236Holy shit that's amazing.I love this quest, I love the people participating in this quest.
>>25668236I love you.
>>25668309[X] Gravity Magic enhancing.I find the image of an incredibly heavy baguette humorous.
>>25668309[X] Restoration.Though if possible have it also give some durability as well, it heals them, and keeps on healing them even after they eat it.
>>25668309Is our normal black bread just a regular heal/enhancer?The I vote for Flame Magic enhancing.If not then Hastening or Restoration.
>>25668236HO. LY. SHIT.This... this is fucking awesome.>>25668309restoration please, oh Diligently Dark Duke.
>>25668286I don't think you understand how powerful a Noah is. she can handle herself. we'll have Kama and the kids nearby just in case.
>>25668374Our black bread only boosts strength at the moment.
>>25668309Restoration. We can make our next bread ability enhancing and become the party buff giver.
>>25668374Our normal black bread is a stat raiser.
>>25668401Let Kama and the Kids have fun they haven't really killed anything since the bandit raid a few threads ago. I still vote we stay and heal up with our new restorative Baguette and engage with small talk with the Noah.
>>25668411>>25668439Okay then I change my vote to restorative
>>25668244I like this, but I still think that we should have Ivan, Armburst, and Madeleine take on the Exorcist, at least keep him busy, while we and Schwere kill some people to help repair ourselves.
>>25668401I don't think you understand how powerful an exorcist captain is. Admittedly this is captain not general but Morgan is not yet awakened in full and it would be a shame to lose her. I'd say request some time for us to recover our wounds and then offer our services as a mount for a firsthand view of all the people suffering.
>>25668457the Noah gave us a command. we can ask if we can rest for a bit to recover with Schwere>>25668496which is why we have Madeleine, Armburst, and Ivan keep him busy.
>>25668236That is absolutely beautiful.
>Baguette ability applied.>Restoration.>Binding Briquette Baguette!: Heals minor wounds by the bite and applies a regenerative effect when eaten in whole. When consumed by humans, old wounds open.
>>25668560I assume it heals Noah family members?
>>25668560Will the affects remain if we use the bread to make sandwiches?
A lot has happened, would a fellow be kind to give a breakdown of what the consensus is for the destruction of Ruinebriar and the purging of the exorcist?>>25668597Yes.
>>25668560Excellent, pump out some of that for us and Schwere, and give the Black Bread to our family for this slaughter we have set up.And give Morgan some of our baguette as well, she was not treated well in the prison.
>>25668560Eat a Baguette >When consumed by humans, opens old woundsOhohohoho good Doctor you are making me think of a lot of evil ways to use that
>>25668560Oh man I love that our baked goods have unique effects just for normal humans.
>>25668607Does that mean we can advance our baking obsession to include all things that involve baked goods in them? Could we prepare super buffs out of complex dishes in the future?
>>25668607Well, My plan is to have Kama and the kids circle the outskirts of the town, making sure that anyone that leaves doesn't live long. Ivan, Armburst, and Madeleine keep the Exorcist busy while We and Schwere stay with Morgan a bit to heal up and join the Exorcist hunt.
>>25668665No reason not to. I actually hope you fellows commit upgrades to creation Oven. it'll get good in the future. especially at Lv 3.
>>25668688Of course, I plan on voting for more utility based over stuff and leaderly stuff anyways.
>>25668688WE MUST MAKE BLACK GINGERBREAD MEN!
Speaking of exp...People of note died recently.>500 exp
>>25668688I was about to make a bread turducken joke, then I saw this. Excellent.
>>25668718Why not just pastry golems in the form of lv 1 akuma? Good distraction and shows devotion.
>>25668718Gingerbread Men golems? Gingerbread golems.
>>25668688Assuming we survive that long. Though if we do it will indeed be quite a factor. Oh well, I always wanted to upgrade Devil's luck and that the most anyway. Curious to see where you would take things if we went all in on those fronts. You really seem to be a master of "winging" it, like any great GM.
>>25668742Devil's Luck 3, Smoke Magic 1.Once we get another 100 I say put it in the Creation Oven.
>>25668688>>25668742Well, what do you know-I think we'll do just that.
>>25668742Time to upgrade those cannons. There's ever so much burning to do, and not a lot of time to do it in.Then upgrade our smoke.
Finally caught up from the archives, and this thread. You are all wonderfully devious people, and it's wonderful to be a part of this. Hats off to you especially, Duke, for writing this quest in such a grand old setting.
>>25668742Upgrade creation oven.
>>25668742devil's luck 3, creation oven 2.
>>25668742We're about to set everything on fire, get Smoke Magic.Creation Oven 2 as we use our baked goods a lot.
>>25668742Upgrade creation oven to 2, and Pressure cannons to 2
>>25668742I vote for Pressure cannons and devil's luck
>>25668742creation oven and pressure cannons.
Devil's luck and the oven. We must make progress towards bringing our sponsor forth into this world. It will be almost as interesting as romancing an (especially) insane and unstable Noah.
>>25668236Oh hell. This is actually pretty close to what I imagined Faefnir to look like (except with less machine bits on).I love the way you did the furnace, though. It's fucking incredible.
pressure cannons and the oven.
You pile ash from the campfire into your furnace and churn out sticks of baguettes, biting into the first one yourself... the smell of ash and soot is purged as you take out the bread, and in its wake is the delicious crispy smell... though you can't think of a human in their right mind that would eat a baguette as black as this...Morgan snatches one of the loaves and crunches into the exterior while its still hot and fresh,"Ish sho ood!" She talks with her mouth full even as you pass it out to other family members, Schwere being the first."This has restorati-""Ermapherd!" Morgan swallows hard,"My, my head feels better!" She bites into it fervently and Schwere takes some gingerly with her one good arm and starts chewing it with some reserve."Everyone take a loaf, if you suffer an injury, flee and eat it.. I don't know the extent that it'll repair..." You feel your chains sliding back into place, and your wings unmangle themselves. "But it works," You chuckle maliciously with what's to come."Ivan, Madeleine, Armbrust, you find the Exorcist within the town and pin him down. Don't engage directly. Schwere and I will recover here. We'll kill him when we're able to join in." The three demons nod and set out."Kama, you and the children are fast, whip around the outskirts and kill anyone that attempts to leave. "Roger that boss! Come on kids!" Kama winds away.Morgan claps her hands," Oh wow, oh wow, you're granting me my deepest wish! Yes, yes, kill them all good monsters, kill them all!" She gets right back to her bread.Long minutes pass as you're away from the destruction occurring within the town...You require more ash for your oven's production...You feel your snout begin to mend, though overall you're far from peak condition.Schwere seems to at least be able to articulate her arm now...> Join the fray.> No... Wait...> Burn something for more ashes.> (Other)
Oh, I also just got an idea, Let's try to keep whatever shop that sells clothes mostly intact. we can bring our mistress there to find clothes that are more to her liking.
>>25668742Devils Luck and Leadership:The young ones are getting stronger. Boosting our Akuma-centric social stat is a Good ThingDevil's Luck, because it's awesome
>>25668236fuck yes. you sir kick ass.
> Burn something for more ashes.Lets go murder some innocents.
>>25669079I like this. also our clothes are probably pretty destroyed... and we do so enjoy the more tasteful things in life, in which category stains definitely do not reside.
>>25669078I think we are good enough to engage in the hunt
>>25668742Devil's Luck (200 exp)Creation Oven (200 exp)Remaining: 100 exp>>25669084We can increase Leadership AFTER we kill the Exorcist. Schwere will probably level up if we let her get the kill, which would bring up the total number of Level 2's in our party to 4. We can get Leadership then.
>>25669132Innocents? Please. they spat on our mistress. they are nothing but lowly rats at this point. we are exterminators, exterminating a rampant "Rat" problem.
Wow. We should archive as edgy anime quest more often. We get four new guys one of whom is a drawfag of great expertise. Thank you mr. Terrible archive troll anon.
>>25669078[X] Join the fray."Milady Morgan, I believe I shall join in on the slaughter. I hope my flames are to your liking. I have found that bread baked from the ashes of a faithful member of the Church are quite delicious, I'll be sure to personally make you a loaf."Don't engage the main enemy forces, but hit civilians, runners, and the like, burn houses for ash, spread some chaos and force the filthy adherents of the Church to spread themselves thin.Use this time to recover more, make more baguettes to eat with the Ash, and once we've made more find Schwere and give her another one or two.
>>25669192I think we are at the point where we can at least go into town and start killing people, turning them into ash, then turning them into bread.
>>25669078Fly up into the sky. Check to see how the battle with the Exorcist is going. If it's bad, take Schwere (and ask the Noah if she wishes to witness first hand the slaughter) and join into the fray with a surprise attack from the air.
>>25669219I know right? Shit's crazy.
>>25669084I second this but after we kill the exorcist
>>25669078>>25669219Which reminds me. Should we get this archived now?
Devil's IIIIIIOven IIIIIIIISmoke IIICannons IIIIILeadership IIVoting result by my tally.Devil's and Oven win out.>>25669219He's been here. since... I want to say second thread? perhaps first?Seems we're joining the fray for "ingredients."roll 1d100 please
Rolled 26>>25669351Yup, joining the fray, if our wings are alright we can have Schwere ride on top of us and take to the skies, it means we can pick and choose our targets, bombard them with Gravity and Fire, and swoop down for ingredients.
Rolled 90>>25669351roling for... something?
>>25669351No dragon drawer in this thread is new.
>>25669351Are you sure? This seems like a different drawfag. He said he only found this quest last week.
Rolled 41>>25669351WE ARE BAKERS!!
>>25669417Oh, the style almost seemed kin to the sir that did this one...Gushing talent here I suppose...
>>25669273I agree, the skies are a good place for us and Schwere.Hell if Morgan wants to see it burn from the skies she can join us and burn everything alongside us.
>>25669467New drawfag here. Yeah, I'm a different guy from the fine individual who drew that.Although one of the things I noted regarding depictions of the Level 1 forms, is that for some reason everyone forgot that the dog-skull-heads were supposed to have a human face on top. So when I started drawing the Level 2 I put a deformed human face on the front of the dragon head. I think it hits that part of the uncanny valley that the Akuma are meant to evoke really well.
Your horns lengthen considerably as a malicious voice whispers into your ear, you turn to listen, yet you hear nothing more and see little else."What's the matter?" Schwere asks of you, some concern touching her voice."We should rejoice... for very evil things are about to happen...">Devil's Luck(3): Things naturally go well for you... even in the worst situation... Toggles a crit inversion:95+ critfails 5- crits. May be activated/deactivated Retroactively (2) times per thread!

>>25669700I noticed that, and might I say, very well done, good sir.
>>25669700It was a brilliant touch. It truly does add an extra factor of being creepy...
>>25669700I do love the way you did the face.>>25669706Pastries! We should make bear claws soon, those are delicious.
>>25669706First chance we get we're trying out cookies.
>>25669078>>25669384Our wings are "unmangled", so I'd say we're cleared for takeoff.
>>25669706And here we go.capcha: This TheadediThis thread, indeed.
>>25669804COOKIES!!!! No seriously, cookies are awesome. Dark Matter Cookies? Bakery Nirvana.
>>25669706So basically our Level 1 recipes are bread-based and our Level 2 recipes are pastries? Also the recipes have a boosted effect now?
So I just checked on the archives, and it seems the anon who was misarchiving threads from before is at it again. Wanna archive this thread before he gets to it?
>>25670038If someone would be so kind while I deliver the next part.
Say, what if we just started archiving this as Edgy Anime Quest ourselves from now on? Few things are as infuriating as the target of an insult taking it as a compliment.
>>25670196I had actually thought of that...
You shake off the distractions and test your wings, the membrane having returned, you are clear for takeoff. With a craning of your head, your eyes pull back into an extra wicked expression," My good lady Morgan, would you care to ride atop my back with Schwere for destruction and despair? I swear that it will be an art upon the air."Morgan eyes you with madness in her eyes," Why certainly I would, I believe a bit of fresh air would do me some good, yes?" You bend down and she pulls herself back up among your spines, Schwere leaps up and stands upon your head, a little heavy, yet planted."Sure you want to be up there?" You grumble a bit angrily, you never offered your head."Yes, it's fine. I won't fall. Trying something new, need a vantage point." "Bah, very well."You spread your wings and rush forward, flinging them open and pushing into the sky as you gain lift.Morgan screams, yells, and laughs upon your back, even as you dive down upon the screams that lay before you.Cracks of lightning and sweeping winds enthrall the outside of the town, bodies in the streets, littered with arrows or crushed...And then you see the exorcist clashing with Maddy in the town's center, right next to the stocks.The exorcist's body is covered in metal... Or no... It IS metal. the whole damn thing.Maddy's fingers are locked into a clash with the man, Armbrust provides undeterred suppressing fire to no avail, and even Ivan's pinpoint shots only glance off the man's iron-solid pecks, abs, and back.He's covered from head to toe... or rather he's just through and through...This has to be his innocence, right?Morgan points and laughs," Metal man! Oh, that's why he's not dead, I told you! What'll you do to kill that piece of shit?! Doesn't seem like you can just mutilate him... Humm, what to do..."Indeed, what to do..
>>25670196Nah. Let's just ignore that and move on.
>>25670196There's no real need to fixate ourselves on it.
Rolled 8>>25670221combine our gravity magic with sechwere's. metal is already heavy, let's crush him under his own weight.
Schwere holds both of her arms out, the orbs appearing at her shoulders and upon her hands."I can weigh him, or lighten him... I'm not sure if either will do... Or I can-"the winds rock you, cutting Schwere off as her feet plant to stay steady."What was that?""I have a new spell that I could try, I was experimenting, draws metals to metal. Seems like it'd be bad in this case though.."> Man of steel. What's the plan?>Going to the store, be back in about 15 mins.
>>25670221The outside may be covered in metal.....but what about the inside?Schwere weighs him down with her magic.We choke him with ash.Then we broil his insides. Like that Greek torture device. The one with the bull. I forgot what it was called.
>>25670221Metal conducts heat. Get Maddy to jump back and toast the guy
>>25670221The wonderful thing about metal is that it conducts heat. Oh does it conduct heat. Coat that sucker in oil and stoke those fires.
>>25670221Find Kama and the kids. Lightning everywhere. Also is our blood corrosive?
>>25670221[X] POISON GAS MODOCan metal help this fucker breathe? I don't THINK so!
>>25670221Heat him up then drop him into a river?
>>25670221made out of metal. excellent. Schwere will be very effective here. we'll use our own gravity magic to make heavy flames, and she can layer hers on top of it.
>>25670328Now that is smart. Repeated heating and cooling to weaken the steel.
>>25670296Brazen Bull. It was essentially an oven in the shape of a bull. Ah, to bake another human alive...Oh hell, it really is OUR kind of torture device. For it involves the immaculate awesomeness that is BAKING!
>>25670328I like this idea. too bad we don't have someone who can do Ice Magic... we should fix that.
Rolled 54>>25670286Lighten metal man and use the new wind spell to have him fly high in the air. The have Schwere increase metal mans gravity tenfold so he smashes back into the ground HARD
>>25670378Thanks.>>25670286We can do this.Get Schwere to encase the man in a metal ball.We fill it up with our poison smog.We breathe fire on the entire thing. Heat it up. Brazen Bull style.Schwere can apply pressure with her gravity magic (we could assist?) while we do this. Pressure and heat together....
>>25670286He may have a body of metal, but perhaps his insides are not as durable, and even metal can warp and bend with heat. Drop Schwere off at a nice vantage point nearby so she can do her thing from safety.Schwere starts by lightening him a lot, Madeleine throws him into the air, and at the apex of his flight Schwere puts all the gravity on him that she can causing him to plummet to earth into a little crater shaped like him trapping him, then she continues to keep him weighed down.Once he's in that little hole we'll breathe an unending stream of poisonous flame onto him while spewing as much Blood Oil onto him as possible, he'll have to breathe some in eventually, some will get inside him, the ash will still choke him and hurt him and he can barely move at that point with heavy flames aided by our own Gravity weighing down on him.Howl and bring in Kama and the Children, the Lightning from Wendel may help as well.
>>25670411yes, excellent Idea. we get Kama, Armburst take over for her with the kids, use her and Schwere as a combo. we heat the guy up, Schwere lightens him up, kama blows him into the river. repeat as necessary.
>>25670429I like this, but we should also do our best to help Sechwere get the kill. she deserves it.
To all you guys planning on poisoning him: innocence which affects body and is therefore most likely parasite type. Parasite types make you immune to akuma poison.
>>25670286I vote for this plan: >>25670429
Rolled 76>>25670286Have Schwere lighten the Gravity around the exorcist while using wind magic to send him flying into the air. Then increase his gravity sending him plummeting back to the earth
>>25670318He could have become living metal for all we know. However, we happen to be an expert at one thing that most metallic things are weak to: heat. I say we burn the fucker until he starts going soft.
>>25670503It doesn't do that; it just gives them the ability to process the poison in their body (with Krory being the only one who can use it to get stronger). They can still die from an overdose.
we must cooke the bastard! use Schwere to hold him still and incase him in metal, then bring him to a slow broil for her to eat.
>>25670551let's flambe him while sechwere increases his gravity as much as possible. eventually he'll warp... his screams will be glorious.
>>25670429I like this Idea, but instead of expecting our poison to kill him, lets just keep breathing fire on him until he melts.
>>25670590Can we make napalm or greek fire? Getting the fire to stick to him would be great
>>25670503No they don't. They make you resistant to the Virus and you purge it from your system given time, but it can still fuck you up something fierce if you're hit with a lot of it.And we're also melting his metal body, once it's really hot he'll also be weak and vulnerable to arrows from Ivan and Armbrust. >>25670496We will, it'll be a team thing, we don't take any chances with Exorcists, her Gravity will warp and bend him as he melts and is hit with everything we got. And she'll get to eat the corpse if it's at all palatable. Also, if she wants, Morgan can lay down her own fire on the Exorcist once he's trapped under gravity in a crater. >>25670603Well I never said to stop breathing fire on him, and the poisonous blood oil is also adding fuel to the fire.
>>25670603We can do both at the same time.>>25670614We can spit our poison blood on him using our Pressure Cannon and light that on fire.
I'm back, my apologies, I grabbed something to eat as well.You all have quite the plan here.Let us see how it turns out...Roll 1d100 please!
Rolled 58>>25671095May the devil be with us. Captcha: selectI debauchees
>>25671137well, we didn't do absolutely awesome, but we did alright.
Rolled 82>>25671095Let's see how heavy we can make our fire.
>>25671138>>25671137>>25671113These dice are simply awful.
Rolled 89>>25671175They've caught on to how our rules system works and are adapting to bring as niche despair as possible
>>25671175oh come on, they aren't THAT bad.
>>25671137And there it is! The highest roll. Though not quite high now is it?Some cause for concern...I'll have you know, my depiction of exorcists. aren't exactly as one-trick ponies.A man of metal, right? That metal is called pure innocence.
Say, my friends, out of the Akuma present in this battle... Who do you like the most?>Schwere>Armbrust>Ivan>Madeleine>Faefnir
>>25671223Metal conducts heat, I don't care what their despicable god has done that armor is little better than a cooking pot
... All of them?
Rolled 34>>25671095good roles for the duke!
>>25671239Madeleinethis worries me very much...
>>25671239>Ivanand>FaefnirI'm gonna be honest with you Doc, no matter how much it hurts.
>>25671239you mother fucker. Ill answer honestly, its... us.
Rolled 89>>25671239Armbrust is a totally cool dude. play along everyone[spoiler/]
>>25671239Schwere. She's a dear, though Madeleine comes close as our imouto.
>>25671239I'll be honest. I'm a Faefnir man.
>>25671239I like armburst the most.this is in case he is choosing who dies
>>25670496Wanted to point this out.When a kill occurs, everyone that witnesses it receives equal exp.It is only untrue for killing a fellow Akuma.
>>25671223>>25671239Well, at least we had a well thought out plan for this one, that ought to make it slightly less painful.Hopefully they'll be alive enough after this for us to stuff as many baguettes down their throat as possible. I already voted for the one who you're hurting.
>>25671239You know your QM is doing a good job when he asks you which character you like best, and you aren't sure what will happen to the one you choose.
>>25671406it's the casual way in which the inquiry was made that disturbs me most "Say, my friends..."
Rolled 12>>25671477For all we know we're selecting sole survivor and new protagonist after TPK.
>>25671616I don't think we rolled that badly...
Your brain churns with possible combat maneuvers in this particular situation... The man is going toe to toe with Maddy, even pushing her back a bit. And he's altogether ignoring the arrows of Armbrust and Schwere.You notice that his body glows with an ephemeral holy green as he advances, like tatters of holy cloth streaming from his body.His body is his weapon, his body is his weapon and you'll need to fix that."Schwere, we need him to be lighter, as light as you can make him so that Maddy can get an edge. I'll be going down to heat him up like metal in a forge!"You feel a tap upon your spine,"This is where I'll be getting off, hm? I wouldn't want to get in the way." Morgan yells over the cold mountain winds that batter you.You roar out," Madeleine, hold the line!"She turns to regard you for a moment, and in that, The Asher undoes the clasp and slams her across the jaw, causing her gold to fade for a moment as it resists the damage.You see him begin to lay into her and realize that you very well may lose her a "second" time. You drive downward and Schwere leaps back, grabbing Morgan and drifting away with lessened gravity."I've got her, drive forward!" Without those two in the way, you bank to the right and spew flames upon the metal man, eliciting an irate groan even as he continues to lay into Maddy, unrelenting. He aura flashes, and flashes, and you see arrows bouncing off his flesh.Cutting your breath off for a moment, you see that the man is still moving, and strong, undaunted by the fierce heat of your flame. You see a black glow from Schwere's landing and the next blow glances off of Madeleine's hide.With a vicious swing, Maddy knocks the man into the air, with Schwere's magic keeping him afloat for a moment... up until he's back upright, tucks his body back in and drops like a rock in water.
Rolled 24walp it's late for me. Good night sir Duke!
>>25671701Waiting warmly for the next bit~
The cobblestone crumbles beneath is landing and he turns back to you, metal eyes glaring with far more malice than you've seen in even Akuma," You... Fire..." His metal voice groans out and he watches your flight path around, as you spew fireballs and gouts of flame alike. doing little to him, yet wracking up plenty of collateral damage.Ivan shouts from somewhere unseen," There is little to be done with him! He is fierce like boulder against tides! Harder place than a rock! Arrows bounce, and Madeleine's fists bounce off!"The Metal man groans out once more, a deep sigh," Innocence... "He flexes, rage painted in his molded features," MORE POWER!!!" The Flame-like cloth flowing from his body wraps around him, turning him into a mummy of green energy, right before the bands solidify into metal.With an outstretched arm, the metal ribbons uncoil themselves and dart for your body, only allowing you to twist out of the way at the last moment, the cut taking you right below a metal "rib" upon your organic facsimile of a body.Maddy roars and swipes at the ribbon you're stuck on, only to bear one herself. It stops short upon her hide and her gold shines brightly as it attempts to repel the blade-like implement that you've recently become acquainted with."All.... Die...." The metal grouns once more, and Armbrust unloads another swarm of arrows in a strafe only to be caught in the flanks by one of the metal cutters.You grip the blade that's cut into you and force heat into it. If you could rend the bars, you can rend these, right?Another takes its place in your shoulder, damn near cutting your arm off."Brother...Liked.... To... Do... This.... Slow..." The ribbon at your shoulder is driven in and out like some kind of not-chainsaw. You try biting at it, only to feel it slice through a chain. Damn well enough of that.Ivan is nowhere to be seen, though that's good. Likely he's lining up a shot...> Well, what's the plan now?
>>25671903>Ivan is nowhere to be seenOh god.
>>25671903Well we should be leaking blood all over the place. Let's use that and make this place into the oven it was always meant to be. Burn bright and burn fast. This loaf is already too hard and is only good for ash.
>>25671903We might want to consider retreating. Especially if things keep going as they are.
>>25671903I have a bad idea. Let's egg him on. let's put on his brother's face "Yeah, well your brother was a hopeless pedophile who got his sick kicks with little boys."
>>25671960Sniper's gonna snipe. We just have to get this Iron Man's head hot enough to splatter.Captcha: rejoice leendly
>>25671903clearly fighting this guy directly is not working so maybe we could try just burning everything aroun him and filling the streets with poisonous smog making it impossible to see and just slaughtering everyone
>>25672015That is a bad idea. actually, I think we had ought to get out of here. we've got what we came for (the noah) and we're putting that at risk with trying to take down the town. also, we're only level 2, and most exorcists are a match for a level 2. Especally when they get their innocence-rage on. Thuss I suggest we run away and live to kill another day.
>>25672076but the exorcists will be suspicious about the fact that we went out of our way to rescue some "witch"
>>25671903>>25672004Here here. When faced with something indestructible and dangerous, it's best to leave it behind until we can figure out how to deal with it, or immobilize it such that it can't move anywhere else.
>>25671903Fuckity fuck fuck.Okay, howl, bring in Kama and the kids, Kraille will stay back, Kama is fast as hell and can dodge well, might be able to use wind to fuck him up, I think that Wendel's Lightning is one of the few things that'll go through and hurt him.Armbrust still has his baguette I think, he should eat that about now.Turn on Flame Cloak and our blood oil should at the moment be flowing down the metal and ignite warping it and melting it.Keep on lobbing fireballs mixed in with Blood Oil from the Pressure Shooters down on him, the poison ought to be hurting him, and he'll heat up.Schwere can draw metal to metal, right? And he has several very sharp, hard, tendrils waving about. So make his own ribbons attracted to him, they should veer in on him very fast and hurt him, since they're made of the same stuff it ought to be able to do damage, also put a lot of Gravity on him and the Tendrils so he stays down and they fall towards him even fast.
>>25672144yeah, let's bring more metal. the metal that he is wearing is powered by Innocence. let's bring more metal to him, hopefully to weigh him down. even if it somehow makes him strong, we're going for critical mass here.
>>25672095so what? The doctor should arrive to pick her up when we're sufficiently away from trouble, and then she's out of their reach. If we don't win this fight, and it's looking suspiciously like we won't, then this exorcist might actually manage to kill her. I mean, it's obvious Ms. La Fey is in cahoots with us, sechwere just levitated her off of our head.
>>25672183Well I was aiming more for having his own tendrils impale him but that also works.Also, throwing heavy metal objects in the air and making them crash down on him via Gravity and Magnetism is good.
Rolled 9>>25672183Where could we find enough metal for that? I don't think there is a foundry or anything like that nearby. We could make every akuma around him leave and use the magnetism spell hoping it will be strong enough to attract stuff from the rubble.
> Cripple with aim to flee.> Keep on fighting to kill.If fighting,>>25672144 and >>25672183may work... One of your arms, IS getting sawed off by the way.
>>25672256ah, we can regrow those. we best finish him now, because he will probably chase us...
>>25672256[X] Keep on fighting to kill.And in my post >>25672144 for the one sawing our shoulder it's now covered in very flammable blood oil, and we can turn on flame cloak and concentrate our fire on it to melt it and render it soft enough to tear with our Teeth or otherwise remove from our person.
>>25672256[X] Keep on fighting to kill.We must leave no witnesses, and anyways I never liked that arm anyways. It was far too clingy.
>>25668236Other drawfag here, that's quite good! Only complaint is the rear leg looks too short and is more like a lizard's leg than I pictured ours.If I'm gonna be competing with another artist, maybe I'd better do more than just doodle, eh?
>>25672338Oh boy... the art wars?However you two gentlemen wish to perform, is all well and fine. So long as it's kept civil and tasteful. Unless we're talking about Madeleine...
>>25672256I say we dip out, we are only level 2 and likely to get stomped even with all this backup.
>>25672376If there are others that would like to retreat, now is the time to speak up...
>>25672371Agreed. Make Madeleine the biggest tart. hell, make her an actual tart, if y'know what I mean.
>>25672411fuck it, tacticool retreat time. Faefnir shall not die today
Rolled 90>>25672376>>25672256>[x] Cripple with aim to flee.That guy obviously outclasses us. We have to flee before he kill us, the whole family, the noah and then pisses over our dead bodies. If he can pee, that is.
>>25672444besides, he misses his brother, maybe a doctor could help him later?
>>25672376>>25672411yeah, I'm thinking it'd be a good day not to die. retreat for us.
>>25672424I know exactly what you mean.
>>25672256[X] Keep on fighting to kill.If we don't get anywhere in the next round we'll get the fuck out of here, but I think with our plan and our numbers we can take him out.
>>25672472Unfortunately, it's not possible to make that deal without his weapon turning against him for such a betrayal.God is a fickle and wrathful one after all!
>>25672472I don't think we can fool an actual exorcist with that. and we would be fools to try
>>25672485That is naughty my good sir... A fine piece at that.
>>25672371Oh I don't mind other people's art at all, it just tells me to step it up! Until now I've just been doodling with my mouse.Also, I've been thinking of the next levels for various Akuma. How's this sound?>Armbust- a WWI inspired machine-man with a water-cooled machinegun arm and gas mask/helmet comboToo future? Or would you prefer to keep the L2 as beasts?As always I'm open for suggestions, and now that I have a scanner I can pop out a concept in less than 5 minutes.I had a suprise in the works for level 3s, if you'd like to see one.
>>25672543I would.And that'd be an interesting design for Armbrust, I'd prefer that for L3 though.I do need some ideas thrown around for his L2 though. I'm not entirely happy with it. I've got something for Schwere, Kralle, Wendel, and Kama... but I'm having getting something I like for him...
4 vs 4 on kill vs retreat.I'll roll in a few minutes. Unless a tiebreaker occurs.
well, goodnight all. Gotta be up in the morning... keep Faefnir alive for me!
>>25672634i say we make like a run and split the fuck outa dodge. RUN
>>25672634Retreat for me!
>>25672634I say keep on fighting.
Well now we have a pursuer.
>>25672676Good night sir.Faefnir and company will be set to retreat.>Roll 1d100.The most detailed attack plan will be followed unless an alternate plan for retreating is taken.I apologize for the delays by the way. Just ensuring I get everyone's take on the matter, especially when you about walk the border.
>>25672634retreat so we regerate, ask morgan for help, do all the skirmishing and then: and tforclu
Rolled 43>>25672748Rolling, hoping for a crit.Also, it look like retreating got a lot of support suddenly.
Rolled 95>>25672748fine. let's see how badly we fuck this up
>>25672603Well the way I see it, int he series (Which I finally got around to reading thanks to this quest), Level 3s all look about the same apart from some unique features, a large humanoid with armored skin and long, thin limbs.I figured to keep us all unique, make the L3s all humanoid, but with very distinct features. (Our cape thing drew earlier) Thing is, I think you might prefer to save the really human designs (uncovered faces and such) for level 4, assuming we get there. I dunno, just my two cents.I'll sketch up some concepts for Armbust, and here's a doodle of a potential L3 or L4 Ivan
Rolled 3>>25672748dear dice gods, have mercy upon a sinner
>>25672774... correct me if i'm wrong, but Devil's luck is off, correct?
Rolled 85>>25672774!!!Is devils luck on?
Rolled 25>>25672774thank god! I thought I had doomed us all!
Rolled 46>>25672784retro devils luck?
>>25672543Hmm, seems a bit futurey. Given that he's doing a lot of volley fire with his arrows I think he should have some automatic crossbows that spew out massive amounts of fire at a time, and some bigger crossbows that fire bigger bolts, and to make it more unique have long links of chain or razor wire attached to the back of the bolts allowing him to change their aim in mid air, to wrap around things and people and cut them, to be used to turn an area into a spider's web of sharpness so people running through it can't move around freely, or impaling into things and pulling them one way or another, maybe anchoring them into the ground so they can't move. Possibly allow him to have two bolts attached to the same wire for various shenanigans like bolas or shooting one into a person and one into a wall behind them.Maybe a move of his could be launching a massive volley into the air and it landing in a roughly circular area stabbing into everything forming a massive net of sharp death.Maybe letting him drive stabilizing pitons and the like into the ground so he can't move but he's a much more stable firing platform leading to more accuracy and higher volume of fire, maybe also increasing the size of the bolts fired as he can deal with the recoil. >>25672789Nope.
>>25672801No need, that's roll 4.
>>25672774WE'RE OUTTA THERE
>>25672784please tell me that doesn't count.
Rolled 80>>25672822it does not. roll 4.
>>25672807i got it, how about a scorpion with a multi-crossbow for the tail, or that shoots spikes from his tail and claws quickly? Keep an arachnid theme for our ranged guys, since both our melee guys are reptilian.
>>25672748We should tell everyone to fall back and proceed to do so, all the while causing destruction throughout the town and hopefully putting a lot of civilians at risk. Hopefully this exorcist is the "heroic" kind hehehe...
>>25672858hm.... I like it.
Rolled 39>>25672858if this is what we go with, can the ranged guy after that be a tick?
>>25672888there aren't a lot of those....
>>25672786Still hasn't been turned back on, and you've still got a charge.>>25672782That was actually my thought on how to design them as well.Never liked the helm and color differences for the 2 prominent L3's that they show.Further differences make it more interesting, and a far more, uncanny, human design for L4... Like Dolls, instead of creepy cherubim Would be far more interesting. My thought for Ivan was a bit sleeker, with some inspiration from Artemis, with more spider theme. More likely as a L4 than an L3. This doodle would strike me more kin to Armbrust's more guards-man nature. >>25672858I like that as well... Arrow-volley scorpion... Interesting...
>>25672907Hopefully enough to be worth rescuing. (any at all will do if he's a good person)
>>25672774Hell yes. We uncatchable.
Rolled 47>>25672913can't rely on that.
It occured to me after starting this doodle I have no idea how to draw a scorpion.
>>25672935Ok just my suggestion. What do you propose?
>>25672858Ooh, I do like that. I would like to keep the chains/wire thing as I like that idea, but with the scorpion it means he can have a lot of smaller ones covering him, one that launches volleys on his tail, and a really big one in his chest. The chest one could be a really sturdy chain, the rest razorwires. If we're doing the planting himself as an artillery emplacement it's easy with a scorpion, just put pitons or other stabilizing things that plant into the ground on each of his legs. >>25672953That's a very good start, maybe try googling for scorpion pictures to reference. And feel free to deviate from the Scorpion look.
>>25672909I could easily redesign the arm from a singe shot "railgun" of sorts to a volley gun, one sec. Also...Level 3-4 Madeline?Taking "too human" in the other direction than I think you wanted lel
Rolled 47>>25672955run. hide. and survive, so that we can fight another day. we have responsabilities to the family you know? can't just go around risking our life too much.
>>25673005Okay but how do you expect to lose this exorcist without losing any family?
>>25672995hm.... good start, but not... what's the word... "lewd" enough
>>25672995How about L3's maintain a "helmed" look and L4's gain a human face again.That said, I like that general look for an L3-4 Madeleine... It's attractive, yet not too prissy. A herculean body-builder type woman, it's actually pretty good, I'd say. What do the other gentlemen think, however?>>25673058 It could be a touch more lewd, though in a tasteful way... hehe...
Single shot arm replaced with a rapid-fire one, now we just need a level 2.I'll photoshoop up a full body version of >>25672995 while I doodle up other designs.
>>25673075It could get lewder while still remaining tasteful, a lewder expression on her face, have the V of her neckline go down lower, perhaps down to her navel or so, and bam, we've got lewd, but confident about it.
>>25673075Less carapace, more synthetic muscle (kinda like the stuff they've got in Metal Gear Solid/Rising, whichever the artist may be more familiar with), is what I'm thinking.
>>25673129heheheh. I like the look on his face. it's like "I don't know what the hell i'm doing."
>>25673138i like it.
You glance down at the oil blood leaking down the ribbon as it saws through you, the thing halfway through your shoulder.You won't take this anymore, this foe... this foe is too powerful for the likes of your little family and what power they have..You spit flame upon the oil leaking down the ribbon, forcing a heavy gout to ensure it melts, and quickly do the same to the other.Free, you begin to fly again, only to see another ribbon shoot at you like greased lightning, however something faster strikes the ribbon just before it makes contact, diverting the trajectory.You roar with a deep breath," Retreat!"You see that your fire races to the man and he quickly drives his compromised metal ribbons into the ground, snuffing out the flame. He thrashes about, seeking out the origin of that arrow, yet finds nothing.That vital time is spent with you and Madeleine pulling out and away from the exorcist, slipping behind buildings to break his line of sight."Where are you?!" THe metallic voice rings out."You hear the heavy sound of Ivan's Ballista-bolt hit home, and the slight grunt of the man as he shakes it off.Weaving through the buildings, Madeleine's reptilian eyes glance at you," What's the plan?"Plan? What plan? There's only one plan to think of," We run."Madeleine holds onto a part of her chassis, holding in her black blood," He cut through my ability..." She growls," If we meet him again, It's personal.You take note that Maddy gets far more serious when danger is afoot now...Ivan appears inbetween some buildings even as a metal ribbon lashes through ones the two of you already ran by."Here comrades, Armbrust has already retreated through the north, we must be going onto the south, we meet to the East. That is the plan that we agreed.Nothing that you had given the order for but..." Where's Schwere, and Morgan?""They have left since you called for retreat, the young ones should have heard too." The Akuma hear a metal cry without words.
>>25673163Like the BB Corps chicks?
Rolled 23>>25673283if schwere dies Ill be pissed.
>>25673336Are we being honest now? That Schwere was your favorite?It's a little late for that...Just a little late...
Rolled 26>>25673352not favorite, but close.
One trillion hours in photoshop. I chose an unnatural skintone on purpose. Also I'm pretty sure the cross was red, but eh. Doodles gonns dood.
>>25672995Must...not...fa-->>25673352....Thank you, Duke, for inadvertently addressing my problem.
>>25673283>>25673352We can fly, once Madeleine and the others are off, we take to the skies, locate the Exorcist, and see if we can't see Schwere, stay outside of the range of the tendrils, as high as possible. >>25673391I like how much of the sides she's showing off, dem thighs and sideboob, I'd personally have the lion mane go down a bit further, but other than that it's really nice. I especially like the murdergloves.
>>25673391Lewd, yet tasteful.
>>25673352you are a heartless, evil bastard, and I love/hate you for it.
>>25673352Different anon, but Schwere was my favorite too. Even before this fight, she's given the most to keep the family alive, obliterating her own arm so Madeleine could have a chance to live.
>>25673352This is truly personal now.
>>25673468Awaiting the next post to see if Schwere can be saved or not.
Ivan glowers down, deadly serious,"This man is dangerous, we must go. NOW."Ivan jumps upon an unburnt roof, and you see another ribbon shoot for you, only to be deflected by another pinpoint bolt."I am getting lucky, I cannot tell how lucky I will always be, Comrades. Go on, I will pester him for he cannot see me."A bolt is fired and Ivan's nearly invisible self bounds away.You trust Ivan, he'll do a good job. You and Maddy maintain your speed and cut between more houses to put more inbetween you and that... that monster.You see the city gates, and more corpses strewn about everywhere, most of them with their legs lopped off, by the looks of it, in one cut. Good work Kama.You look to Madeleine,"Revert to human, we'll fly." Madeleine's form compresses in on itself suddenly and the human facade comes on. She hops on your back with another word, and you take to the air, keeping a very reasonable distance as the man rampages about, cleaving through the city as if there's an invisible attacker in the midst... Bless that Ivan.. You see the modest robes of Schwere leaping out and abound with Morgan in tow. You lower yourself to the outskirts of the west and bellow out the rallying call for Kama and the little ones, you hear a returning howl that's like an "I'll come soon."You bellow again very much like an,"No, you come now." Without a return, you know that they are on their way...>Roll 1d100...
>>25673574>You lower yourself to the outskirts of the eastImportant to fix that.

okay, these rolls are seriously all suspiciously low. damn dice program

Rolled 44>>25673709Oh god.We better not lose the Noah too, damnit.
>>25673685It only toggles crits. 6 is still a near-absolute failure, and a 95 is almost perfect success.
>>25673709i knew it. Kama is dead and so are the kids. calling it now.
>>25673709Well, hopefully the Crit on the Delaying him and escaping means this won't be too bad. He ought to have at least been slowed down by that.>>25673731Nope, 95 is a Crit Success according to the pastebin.

We helmets nowdistracting myself from the inevitable tragedy
Our level 4, but thinner and with wings and a halberd?
>>25673885We lost the halberd, or did that regenerate when we munched on the baguettes?
Rolled 57>>25673885We'd be slimmer, I think, since we're focused towards agility.>>25673915We lost it. It wasn't a part of us.
The children, and Kama come around, skirting about the edge of town as they had been told. You are happy that they had been so dutiful, and obedient with the task, even if they had wanted more time. You look about, and you see that you have Madeleine, Kralle, Wendel, and Kama...In no time, you see Schwere come around from the northern bend, holding Morgan with both of her arms, the gravity orbs humming with her power. She glances about as everyone looks expectant. No one speaks, not even Morgan as she reads the mood, though she still has a dazzling smile.You take note that Kama has new designs on her body at this point, it's likely that she's extremely close to evolving... That's good, she can protect the kids better like that..Armbrust and Ivan are missing...You eventually see Armbrust, limping down the road, his leg still wounded despite your healing bread, he whines a bit as the oil leaks from behind him in a trail.From the dust and debris of Ruinebriar, now aptly named, you see the gleaming of metal from behind him, and ribbons jut out, only to be stopped by something... something as it comes into view.Your black heart drops in your chest as Ivan stands before you all, impaled by the ribbons. Armbrust turns his head back and whines.Ivan braces his legs into the ground as the ribbons draw him back. The metal spikes that are his feet drive into the ground as he keeps himself from being pulled."Comrades... This... is it for me... Go!" He roars out through his teeth, Losing more ground to the aggressor that bind him, more ribbons wrap around his legs, destroying his entrenchment.You roar, ripe with rage, and the sense of loss, you begin to move.
>>25673998Oh god. Ivan was my favorite. Fuuuuuuck.
A dark thing smiles...
>>25673998...wow....Wow.... WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW.good job, you magnificent bastard. I was not expecting that. I applaud you.
>>25674058also, pic related
>>25674048Don't you lie to me.Fuck. We're definitely going to kill this guy.
>>25673998Quickly! Have Schwere use her magnetism spell to draw Ivan to us, if she can.>Captcha: Lord ratheym
>>25673998NO! Not Ivan, not poor Ivan. He was the best.FUCK! Fucking /tg/ dice.Any chance of a last ditch save? Schwere has Magnetism, we have Flame, we melt them some, she uses Magnetism to draw Ivan towards us, might have enough to pull him out, heavily damaged, maybe missing his legs, but worth a shot.
Rolled 92it must be raining
"No! Do not... come for me.. comrade..." You see his body now... he's only got 4 legs left, one of his arms are gone, and his chassis has been sliced more than once,"If you die to him, my will dies as well. It has been... an honor... Comrades." IVan salutes you with his one remaining arm, and he's gone, pulled back into the smoke and flames of the burning town. A metal groan, no a metal wail roars out from the man, no, the monster to monsters that pursues your family.> Take the Offensive.> Heed Ivan's wishes and run.
>>25674116Ivan was the Hughes to our...>>25674138DON'T YOU RAISE OUR HOPES, DUKE!
And to think...we were originally possibly thinking of just using him as Exorcist bait, just to get them off our tracks. And now....now he's sacrificing himself so that we might escape. You did well, comrade.
>>25674099>>25674103NO MY FRIENDS. it pains me to say this, but we must leave him. he is already dead. DO NOT LET HIS SACRIFICE BE FOR NOTHING!>>25674138Run the fuck away. we will have a moment of silence for him later.
>>25674138[X] Take the Offensive.We can't let this man live.
>>25674138These >>25674103>>25674099Pull Ivan towards us drag him away from the monster. We can take to the air and help with some precision fire to distract the Exorcist and melt the tendrils. Don't go on the offensive, just drag what's left of him out of there, we can fix him up with time.
Rolled 11>>25674138run the fuck away. but we will be back.you know what? my eyes are actually watering right now you crafty mother fucker.
Say duke, would it be possible for us to sneak in and rip out Ivan's core, and ask the Doctor to give him a new body? We'd have to be quick...
>>25674171>>25674178it's too late, you fool! we can't hope to beat him now. we have to get away and save the rest of the family.
>>25674138>> Heed Ivan's wishes and run."Come, we wouldn't want our Comrades last wish to go unfulfilled...."
>>25674154The irony.It tastes bitter and horrible in my mouth.>>25674138Tell everyone to run away.We're coming for our comrade.
>>25674138KILLTHISGUYtell family to hold back
>>25674138Heed the wishes of a fallen comrade, no matter how painful it is. Remember this pain, and let it make us stronger.
>>25674138Try to retrieve some of his body with Magnetism and applied fire. Don't do anything stupid like try to kill the Exorcist, we'll lose as we are now, but if we can get his chassis, his core, some limbless torso, some amount of his body out, we might be able to save him, or at least give him a proper funeral.
>>25674138Tell the family to retreat with the Noah, we can go in and try to grab Ivan and fly away, using smog as cover.
Rolled 73>>25674220Oops, meant to say dunkoff. For making this more painful for us. So painful.
>>25674154>>25674180Comrades.>>25674188It is possible, in theory. However the monster's obviously begun to get used to his... "change."Is it worth the risk to let him die in vain?Please consider what it means, especially to face the man alone.
>>25674138tell family to hold back, go in and try to grab Ivan and fly away>eat a baguette/gather ashes for baguette
Rolled 93>>25674138Agreeing with these guys.>>25674178>>25674231>>25674232We don't need to fight the guy. Just retrieve Ivan. At least, as much of him as we can.
>>25674204>>25674211>>25674231>>25674232we can't let his sacrifice be for not. THIS IS WAR, MEN, AND WE SOMETIMES HAVE TO LEAVE SOLDIERS BEHIND FOR THE GREATER GOOD. seriously, stop endangering the family.and don't act too human. we ARE Akuma
>>25674243I say go for it, we get most of them out, Schwere is keeping as much distance as possible for this, and we'll be flying very fast and up high. The risk is minimalized through these things, and the Exorcist isn't exactly thinking straight right now.
>>25674243While it'd be touching to not have Ivan die alone, our "family" needs our leadership. Sure, the Noah would obviously be the defacto leader, but she'd be driven (even more) mad from the constant infighting. No, we need to be there to straighten them up, and honor Ivan's memory.
>>25674243We can live without blood right? Then let's make a smokescreen, grab his core, and leave. This is something we do alone though.
>>25674267endangering, i'm telling them to go while we try to solo, and this isn't being human this is comradery.>don't ever make the mistake of calling us "human"
>>25674272no, WE aren't thinking straight either. seriously, as much as it pains me, leave him and don't look back.
>>25674267>>25674251Combine these both, do a stealth check on ivan, if it looks like he can be saved, try to grab his core or body, if not, GTFO.
>>25674286and don't bother, he was obviously completely destroyed. that's what innocence does. completely destroys Akuma.>>25674305>>25674293seriously, don't be stupid. exorcist leave nothing of the Akuma's body behind when they destroy it.
>>25674138>>25674243[x] Heed Ivan's wishes and run.Don't go back, alone or otherwise. Exorcists free the souls powering akuma anyways; it's already too late to retrieve his core.
>>25674335exactly. this guy gets it.
Rolled 70we must respect our comrades last wishes
>>25674231EAT HIS HEARTWEAR HIS SKIN
>>25674243>"Change"What change?>>25674326He hasn't been destroyed yet. That's the point of the discussion; should we risk retrieving him or run?And stop with the insults.
>>25674326So we have Schwere pull Magnetism on the core or Ivan, if it doesn't get anything we move on, if she can drag the core to us as he just now managed to pull him away we're golden, if not we won't pull an Ivan and then we hightail it.
Ehhh, I'm partial to at least check if he can be saved. From far away, obviously. Also, TANK SCORPION! Hunkers down for more armor and increased fire rate!
I think I almost know how it was when Azure killed Hector off in Hollow quest. Calling for concise voting here.I apologize for doing this again.> Try to save Ivan against his wishes,> Respect his final wish and get the family out.

>>25674369I suggest a compromise. Fly up high and look at Ivan, see if he is still fighting back. If so, we can decide on a course of action. If not, leave him behind.
Rolled 65>>25674369respect his wishes!

You crane your head back to the rest of the family, as Armbrust finally rejoins the group.Schwere tugs upon your tale, her eyes colder than usual," We need to go Faefnir, he's de-"You growl. a rippling thunder as you open up your wings," He's not dead, I'll find him... I''ll"You hear an explosion, much like a pop and see the glean of metal once more through the smoke. Your heart sinks once more.Madeleine stares at you, her own self unusually stoic," That was it, That's the same sound from Messer and Dorn's deaths... We need to leave now Faefnir." The Demon grabs you by the tail and begins to drag you away even as you snarl and resist.With a finally snap back at her," I can go myself. Get upon my back and we'll go, Kama, ride the winds and scout forward, we go north and east over the mountains. We need distance.It is with a heavy heart, the family turns their back on this place and puts as much distance as they can, as much wood and mountain as they can before nightfall. With your own body as a traveling method and Kama skirting ahead upon the winds, you eventually find a reclusive site to set down, beyond the summit. No one speaks save for what is necessary. Morgan even looks a little desolate by the mood the family's been put in by Ivan's death.The tension hangs in the air even as those metal groans hang far into the distance. None of you feel safe... That monster's out for blood now, and your own fires burn with regret, rage.... despair...The words that had been in your mind for so long are spoken first by a shaking Madeleine,"Where... do we go when we die?"No one can answer that...No one will...> Set up a proper camp, as much as possible for the Lady Noah.> Leave things the way they are, we can't leave any tracks.> (Other)

>>25674561> (Other)Contact the Doc if we can, let him know we have a Noah. Does he have the Ark in this setting by any chance?
>>25674561camp for now, give reverence to Ivan and try to contact Doctor
>>25674561No tracks. We'll have to forego comfort until we find a town to disappear in.
>>25674561>Leave things the way they are, we can't leave any tracks, we apologies to the Lady Noah.
>>25674561>You hear an explosion, much like a pop and see the glean of metal among an ethereal trail of dust floating away, and into the sky.>Fixed
>>25674561[X] Leave things the way they are, we can't leave any tracks.If the Lady Noah desires more warmth we quite literally have a fucking oven inside of us, and can warm up anyone close to us.And hold a small ceremony for Ivan, have everyone speak about him, remember the moments we had together.
>>25674561Good Doctor, if I may. Could our next bread recipe be sourdough, its Russian and I think would be a fitting tribute to Ivan>Bread has cultural significance in Russia. This food has been regarded the symbol of hospitality in the Russian tradition along with salt that signifies the ‘long friendship’. Both salt and bread together are used in Russia as part of ‘greeting’ or ‘welcome ceremony’.
>>25674561It's weird having the Akuma cowering away from the Exorcists since, in the manga, they're like locusts.So I guess this is what it's like to have the Noahs and Akumas at a disadvantage. I wonder when we'll get to meet the Bookmen.
>>25674630>>25674623 here.Sounds good to me.
>Mfw http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=yAuI8hrn5Ac#t=343s started playing right as >>25674561 was posted

>>25674561>[x] Leave things the way they are, we can't leave any tracks."I'm sorry, Noah Morgan. But I do fear for your and my family's safety until we have a few days travel distance away from the scum, so we will have to rough it."
>>25674639This. We're definitely getting this next.Have it be a recipe that can increase Willpower, perhaps?>>25674561We can't leave tracks, but we can't deny the Lady's needs either. Food and warmth. We'll do what we can for her.
>>25674639I agree. Honour Ivan's sacrifice.
>>25674648That's because we're smarter than most Akuma in the manga who decide that suicide swarms are the best way to do things.>>25674630Now I can't get the image of everyone curling up next to a mechanical dragon's furnace and saying how warm it is as they use on of our wings as a place to lay down and the other as a blanket as we lay down on our side.>>25674690Well we can take care of both of those, we can make her some Bread, and warm her with our furnace.
>>25674704Well, who knows. This is set in the past and, in the manga, it was the Earl's forces that were at a disadvantage.
>>25674715actually, in the manga, I believe the earl's forces were at the advantage during that point and time.
Hey guys, battleplan for when we meet this guy again.What do we need to upgrade? Durability, perhaps? We can neglect Strength for now since, with our Creation Oven, we can fight at an effective strength level of 3.>>25674639And to honor Ivan's sacrifice, we could have that bread boost Durability. To signify the strong bonds he shared with us and his courage.
>>25674715actually, in manga earl had the advantage. things are much more militarian here and akuma are tracked and sealed until exorcist comes or they change making it easier to find them. manga akuma couldn't be told apart and only allen could openly detect them
>>25674750Oh, well, I'm just going by what Bookman said since, in the last war, they sided with the Noah Family because they were at a disadvantage.
>>25674760We need our fire hotter, and our speed faster. He hit us when we stopped to breath in air. We need to stop breathing.
>>25674760upgrade maw, auto repairthen durability
Well with Armbust about to level I think we should decide on his next form. I'm still jus tmaking random doodles of forms, this being the opposite of>>25674368
>>25674750>>25674772You guys misunderstood me. I meant that, since this is set in the past and in the manga it was stated that, in the past, the Earl's forces were at the disadvantage.
>>25674794grumble 4chan captcha grumble....
>>25674794Do we even still have the centaur lower body? We could give it to him. Make him a Highwayman.
>>25674796ah, then yes, you are correct.
>>25674796true, but this is an alternate world. for all we know in this world the exorcists have already fought and hunted the noah, this being why they are so prepared against akuma and why only 3 noah are present
>>25674815it's back at our other camp... we aren't going back there
>>25674845He never told us if he found the other Akuma's lair did he?
>>25674859GAH! YOU'RE RIGHT!
>>25674859>and now he took the secret to his grave, no loot for us
>>25674859oh well, we still have to bag of unidentified rings and such
>>25674794>>25674809How about a gargoyle (a monkey gargoyle, to complement how nimble he is)? Since he's stoic and acts as a guard. And the symbolism seems to fit.They're guardians who are supposed to ward off evil spirits, but were also condemned because they did not fit in with the Church's image of what's "clean".
>>25674888um... those are probably back at the other camp...
>>25674888Do you want your possessions identified?
The family sits around, desolate upon rocks and a pulled up trunk of a fallen tree. No one is inherently comfortable, though a fire would certainly alarm them far more than anything else...You see that the Noah has started to shiver quite a bit, and you realize that she is still in rags... You pull up next to her and lean in to whisper,"I'm sorry, Noah Morgan. But I do fear for your and my family's safety until we have a few days travel distance away from the exorcist scum, so we will have to rough it without a proper fire and bed.. However, you may sleep between Madelein and I... Her fur is soft, and my Oven is warm. It is the least we can offer.."Morgan lays a hand upon your shoulder and pulls you into a gentle embrace.. A gesture that you can't quite think the last you, yourself- It was Mirabelle. Mirabelle was the last to hold you like this... and you killed Mirabelle to make Kralle.She whispers into your ear," My poor lost creature... Do not worry, you'll kill again in the future.. it will only take time and it'll be all better. I know these things." She lets you go and clasps her hands around your face," You are indeed warm though, I'll happily accept your offer."You put one of your hands over hers, and slowly remove them," Lady Noah is too kind."Morgan looks upset suddenly," What is this nonsense? Calling me... calling me Noah... do I look like... do I look like I make boats? Does.. Say..." She puts a hand to her head as her sudden anger vanishes into pain," My head... it hurts again... oh god it hurts... Why... why does God hate us so..." Tears bgin to well up in her eyes and you over her your rememdy, however she shakes her head, blood drifting from it as a new wound opens up.You stare at her forehead with some scrutiny. Five. She has Five now, she just needs two more... Two more and she'll awaken.The "attack" passes and she grabs you by the shirt, staring at you intently. "I'm cold, fix it."
>>25674921Damn.Well. We probably at least caused quite a bit of grief for the people of Ruinebriar. Probably gonna be infested with Akuma for a while.>>25674960Time for some campfire (with us being the fire) tales? Time to see what Madeleine and Schwere remember of their former organizations. And just generally getting to know everyone.
>>25674960use whatever ashes we have to make a baguette
>>25674998We already have one. She rejected it.
>>25674921thought Schwere had them last i checked...>>25674933unidentified as in we didn't know what metals/gems they were made of, it was Schwere's job to find out
>>25675009i meant give it/make one for the family, we're all a little beaten after that
>>25675012you think you just carry possesions like that into battle? trust me, we lost everything.
- - - - - - - - - - - -With Morgan propped between Maddy's back and your own underbelly, she snores, ans loudly as she drifts to sleep.Everyone else stay awake, no one else seems to want to even pretend at sleep.Madeleine's words from earlier hang upon the air... Where does an Akuma go where they die? Who would know? you all most be thinking.Yet, you break this train of thought by offering memories of Ivan in the form of words... The truth is, the time you all had taken as a family was short, yet you won't forget your comrades' sacrifice. None of you will ever forget...But the thought lingers...Where DO any of you go...?> That's it for tonight. It has been a pleasure gentlemen... I hope to see you all Friday starting at 2000 server-time.>Q & A and suggestions, comments and concerns time before I, myself must drift off into dreams!>We will remember you Ivan.
>>25674960Increase oven temperature and get everyone to crowd around you. That way you all can get a bit of warmth.
My main concern right now is that the Exorcist might say we are working as a "Family", as I'm assuming most Akuma don't. They might decide to target us specifically since we are able to unite our BBBROTHERS.
>>25675046might be a problem, but exorcist only saw us not the families human forms. as long as we try to keep it covert we should escape suspision
>>25675046>the Noah woman called us there maybe?only witness is metal man and he's not much for conversation or plan making
well, gentlemen, it's been fun, but it's 5 in the morning and I must sleep at least 3 hours.
>>25675083Good night sir, I thank you for your time.
Since the thread will be up for a while, anyone have any quest-related doodle requests? I'm not particularly tired yet, and always can use practice.
>>25675034Questions, questions, questions.Who are the closest to Level 2? Schwere and Kama are a yes. How about Armbrust?When will we get an exact idea of what Madeleine's powers are? Do we have to state it ourselves or...? Since it seems like the aura creates a barrier around her. But if we remember how our first battle against Ariel went, it seemed to exert pressure on its targets as well.Also, will Ivan's entry in the pastebin remain? If you change it to show him as being diseased, it'd be a spoiler for anyone reading through the archives.
>>25672543Sup man! Went to take a nap just now, didn't see you come in. I've been thinking the rear leg needs some change too, but I'll save that for when I get around to that part of the drawing.I actually have a truly marvelous idea for a Level 3 form for Faefnir, which this margin is too narrow to contain.
>>25675104I'll leave him there... However I'll move him to the bottom.
>>25675118Ooh. I wanna hear more about your idea.
>>25675101Ivan, saluting. One arm. diced up Chassis.
>>25675147Or in pristine condition, like a memorium. Whichever you prefer.
>>25675122>can we name him Ivan the Bro
>>25675147Spider centaur saluting? Might be hard, not very good at centaur-themed doods, but I'll sketch one up.
>>25675147>>25675155how about both, one side him as Ivan the Bear drinking with family, other side in his final moments
>>25675178What'd ivan's face look like in his true form? I don't recall you mentioning it.
>>25675199You mean in his Akuma form? He had a wolf head, a human upper body, and a spider lower body.
>>25675178Just the upper body would be fine.General theme, sleek and chitinous with "fur" upon the head with a wolf-like visage.
>>25675118>>25675187this could be cool, two Ivans back to back. one Ivan the Bear, strong, stoic, friendly. the other his akuma form final salute, beaten, defiant, a true comrade to the end.>I'd pay for a portrait of that right there
>>25675104Sorry I neglected the other questions... I can't exactly tell you how close any of them are, however, you can tell by how they get more and more powerful with their specializations.If you state it, I will fill it in with ???However, a barrier is pretty much dead on.I hope that's sufficient without giving away too much.
>>25675187Drinking with Armbust since they seemed to bro it up often.And a baker in the background.
>>25675328What did Kama get again? Tattoos? Because magic?
>>25675351Armbrust can hardly contain his excitement
>>25675374Kama has more intricate markings and the tail-scythe has gotten longer and sharper.>>25675351Armbrust's expression certainly captures his character.He's definitely a stoic like Schwere despite being 1.5, although noticeably more duty and despair than she is.
>>25675409So hey, next thread. Are we plunging right back into the action, or are we heading into an 'intermission' stage where we rest up?
>>25675434With that bit of climax there, I'm sure it'd be good to give the party a bit of R & R.So we'll do intermission and begin heading to the next town.Heh... Heheh... Heheheheh.... The High Priest is going to find Ruinebriar in ruins and a half-berserked Exorcist.
>>25675462And it's gonna be hilarious. Hell, considering how much damage was done to it and how far gone he is they might even not have any evidence against the Exorcist destroying the town in a fit of pique.
>>25675462Well, it's not as if we didn't expect that.>>25675478The High Priest probably isn't gullible enough for that. While the normal peasantry are undereducated and seemingly ignorant of the existence of the Akuma, the clergy (at least, the higher ups) will know enough not to suspect the Exorcist alone for all the destruction.
Well, I'll be going to bed now.Good night my dear gentlemen! It's been a pleasure as always.Oh, and to you dear artists, I love the amazing work you've done for the monstrous forms of our dear Demons! I hope you enjoy the compliments as much as we enjoy the results!Bowing out, and off to dreams and what- have you.I'll also speak freely, Ivan was my favorite, right next to one other.
>>25675555Sweet dreams, Duke.And you have good taste. I'll miss our "Toto".
I guess I'll do a few more doodles before heading off to sleep.Level 2 Schwere concept, A land shark I guess? MIxed with a Kabutops? I dunno, just something that looks fast and has scythes.
>>25675640Schwere isn't the fast type, though. Were you thinking of Kama?
>>25675640Derp, yes. I guess I'm more tired than I thought.Man, thinking of ideas for Armburst is not coming easily.
>>25675685He doesn't necessarily need to be an animal.Maybe make him a clockwork soldier? A toy soldier?
>>25675640I like it, though she has a bad habit of slicing off people's legs on the run-by.As it is now she's pretty much going all blade-weasel...I could definitely see this image working for her if it looked a bit more sly, retain shark-like features without the fin, and moreso floated rather than stand. She can pretty much walk on air as it is now.
>>25675706Yeah but it seems that most all the other level 2s are animal themed, I dunno. I'll think of something.Here's a L2 Schwere, the bottom bit could unfold into spider legs if she ever isn't floating, (unlikely to me) Figured being a strictly magic type she'd look different. Also note the face is a porcelain mask.
>>25675745I like it. Maybe give her a hood as well? It'd help give off a "nun" vibe.
>>25675753It's sketchy, but there's supposed to be one there. >>25675723Why not go full land-shark and have her swim rapidly in the air?
A bit more streamlined and also gave her JET BOOSTAHS! for maximum GOTTAGOFASTitudeMake her ability "Extremely focused air/sound"? Jet boost and air/sound cannon from the mouth, akin to the GIANT MURDER BUNNIES from Lost Planet 2?
It seems more than one disgruntled individual is downvoting the archived thread. It's at a score of 4 with 10 total votes.
>>25675783More machinery!>>25675797There's no need to mind that kind of stuff, let it be. Just vote it up yourself.
>>25675760Oh, I could get into that... be more of a sky-shark though. interesting.>>25675745I really like this actually. beats what I had in mind for her. More of a "Baba Yaga" type thing where her lower body is just a pot.Holds the same feel while being far more aesthetic.>>25675783That's nice, though I suddenly have in mind a sterotypical "wind-dancer" thing for her... THen again, sort of a heavier-set motherly shark would be interesting. She can have more feminine features if she makes it to L3.I can't remember giant murder bunnies from that game... Killed so much too.. So much for the Femme fatale skins.... so much... >>25675806The machinery is good.>>25675797I noticed that, I don't mind it. If people enjoyed the quest, and think about it, they'll upvote it.I am so sorry that Ivan died...
>>25675783Huh, new drawfag here again, I was actually going for the boosters/exhaust pipes look myself, when drawing Faefnir. Tons of 'em, all belching fire and smoke and noxious fumes all over the place.
>>25675820It was tg dice that did him in. How fickle the dice gods can be.
>>25675820Giant murder bunnies = the desert Akrid that attack in a pair after you clean out Sniperville
>>25675820>I am so sorry that Ivan died...And that is why I'll always come back to this thread, no matter how much anon hate or retardation it endures. Stay the course Good Doctor.>Ivan the Bear 06/27/13 4:17am>A true Comrade to the end
>>25675826My design was similar, here's an older doodle. I've since added an extra set of jet wings to it.
>>25675826Machine-fluff it up.Gotta remember those roots. THat's what separates these demons from fire and brimstone punks.They're some kind of flesh, we're basically evolving terminators powered by human suffering.>Which reminds me, there's more exp for burning the town.> 400 exp gained.> New total: 500 exp.>>25675849Beautiful. That's going on the second post of the next thread...Feels bad for those that are going to read the archive and find out the bad news... From here on out, I'm going to try to make exorcists more monstrous like Byron Asher. Not exactly monstrous like the Akuma, but to get a bit closer to the original series that the Innocence can be just has frightening as the demons it destroys.
>>25675861>Chainsaw PolearmDamn. Too bad we lost the weapon.That looks good for our Level 3, though.
>>25675871The more monstrous ones seem to be the parasitic-types, though some equipment types can be intimidating as well, though Exorcists like Socalo can be pretty scary as well.
>>25675861Huh, I seem to have misplaced the more detailed one I made. Ah well, have this concept one I made in the last few minutes.>>25675872We actually didn't have the poleaxe yet when I made this, I figured it'd be a nice part of our progression since our plan was to have "Chainsaws ERRYWHERE"
>>25675871>http://pastebin.com/CuLptHELif we upgrade Blood oil and work on chemistry, can we produce acidic/metal eating oil?>you know who i want to use this on
>>25675888Now that I think about it, this might be better for jet-wings.
>>25675889We'll definitely need to work towards this.
>>25675871>Beautiful. That's going on the second post of the next thread...thank you, far from what i really wanted to do as a tribute but thank you none the less>>25674639any thoughts on this btw?
>>25675846I remember those pieces of crap now... Ugh they were so annoying...I could see a sonic or something... still need to determine her unique ability.>>25675872It was registered to your core. you'll regenerate a new one.>>25675882That guy... a convicted felon, I think a former death row innmate... He's not only an exorcist, but a general... pretty messed up, right? A perfect template for the more monstrous exorcists. >>25675889That'll require an advanced chemistry.. and if it eats through metal, it could potentially affect Faefnir as well unless it has a special reservoir or it's generated through a mixed spray from the pressure cannons.>>25675911If you find a maker of sourdough, or the recipe, it's quite possible.Breaking bread in honor of a dead friend... doesn't get much more baww than that...
>>25675889>>25675907>oh how he'll suffer for our lost Comrade
>>25675927An eye for an eye... Kills Ivan. Going to bed now. Good night!
I was going through my drawing folder to find blank paper when I found some old sketches that might be useful for this.L2 Armburst? Replace the machineguns with some kind of stake-thrower maybe?
>>25675922Oh, awesome. Chainsaw Polearm here we go!
>>25675940Good Night Good Doctor, pleasant nightmares
>>25675922Oh, what. Winters was a criminal?He only ever showed up that one time when the Order HQ was invaded. I forgot if anything else was ever mentioned about him after that event.
>>25675871damn, with 500exp I'd really like to upgrade chainsaw replacement and either gravity or pressure cannon...
>>25675955they mention he was released from Death Row for multiple sentences only if he served the Order, he just happened to be both an awesome fighter and batshit insane as well
>>25675942An exorcist perhaps?
>>25675942>Armbrust special power:Bullseyemark target with bullseye, ALL shots home in on it
>>25675967And lastly something I could see being a L2 Akuma with slight modification.
>>25675972Armburst is more of a suppressive fire sort of Akuma. Maybe concussive shots? Or dopplegangers of himself that are fragile but shoot for full damage, for MOAR DAKKA?Or how about Gravity Arrows?WAIT I GOT ITTHE GLUE TURRETS FROM THE INCREDIBLESEach shot builds up extremely heavy ooze on the target, until they can't move, even if they're super strong.
>>25675996what suppresses better than having every shot aim towards target, sure he can still do cover fire against a group but against a single target or exorcist this would put that wild firing to use
>>25676006Why not both.jpegDifferent arrow types, perhaps? Homing arrows, slowing arrows, ice,fire,lightening, hell even angry bee arrows. Make his ability the ability to make and use any type of arrow he wants, and an infinite supply.Either way we have until Friday for the next thread, I'm off to sleep.
