In a world where one's soul is the measure of one's power, the sun smiles down upon the Earth and the moon laughs madly, a young girl and her transforming scythe-man, a egotistical ninja and his ninja tool-girl and a fragment of the personification of Death and twin criminal gun-sisters fought against madmen, destructive witches and the personification of madness itself. A story of comedy, of drama, and the triumph of the human spirit!This is not that story.Approximately 800 years prior to that tale, the world is wilder, teeming with great danger to mortal men. Covens of witches roam the lands, using their magics to destroy civilization rampantly. Monsters stalk the wilderness, preying upon the weak and unprotected. Madness ebbs and seethes, driving humans to performing unspeakable acts. And on the side of humans, eight powerful entities called Warlords are led by Death itself to stop the madness. A scant few years ago, the witch Arachne, through twisted magic and the sacrifice of her fellow witches' souls, created the demon weapons and was soon after hunted and killed. The creation of humans who can become weapons was unknown to you but will now become a vital part of your future and your story. For you see, Lord Death has a plan...But enough nattering about. Its time to begin.>Choose your Fate> You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.> You were born a witch, practitioner of magic. Your clan was killed by Death, their souls used by Arachne to create the demon weapons. Now, years later, you have gained power and seek vengeance upon the world. [FEMALE ONLY]>Choose Gender Male/Female>Rolls will generally be d20s when I ask for them, first 10 rolls, high roll wins barring 1s or 20s.
>>26472980Hurray! You didn't pussy out1> You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.>Male
>>26472980Female.Fuck yeah female.
>>26472980> You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.>MaleAlright.
FemaleWitch>picking a boring self insert male
>>26472980Female, witch.Lets get on with this.
Normal person Male
> You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.>Male>>26473115I just had to vote after seeing you post.
>>26472980We've already got a goddamn unusual soul bullshit in the original.Lets be a witch
It be that thar Witchin Hour.
>>26472980Normal Human, Male.
Sure is samefag in here
Witch.I want to cheese cake the fuck out of everything.
>>26472980>You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.>MaleMeister is go!
Average homo sapien who has a third limb between his legs.
I don't know what Witches are actually capable of.So, witch.
Okay, OP. There seems to be no consensus.Why not both?
>>26473218An ordinary male witch?
>>26473218Witch meister? How would that work?
>>26473228No, two protagonists.
Is there a canon reason why males can't be witches?
>>26473218It's impossible to have both, which is the problem.ANYWAY, WIIIIIIIITCH
>>26473228Who lord death noticed because of our soul signature after eliminating our race.
>>26473234Yes. Females only.
>>26472980Male, normal human.
Witch.We cast spells with butt.
>>26473240I was kind of hoping to hear the reason, anon. Otherwise OP might as well say fuck it and make male witches relatively common.
good god I hope there's a cutoff time. This might go on for awhile...
Damnit man, I'm just going to work, I hope this is good
>>26473264It's literally that only females can be witches. Y Chromosome invalidates it.
>>26473230See Corona. She is medusas daughter, thusly a witch, but she is a meister with ragnarok as her weapon... who was merged with her blood.....so yeah, Witch Meister
>>26473199Given that this is the past where Lord Death roamed the earth.....hehehehehehe....go ahead....think that.>>26473074You've no idea how inordinately pleased I am to that.>>26473218>>26473228A witch meister is possible.....IF you can steal a demon weapon. A witch male, not so much.They don't exist. Eibon, the sorceror, is an exception. A very powerful exception.Okay, still about half and half with witch nudging out ahead. Going to give it a couple more minutes before calling it. If there isn't a consensus by then, I'll be rolling for it. Cheers.Remember, being a witch gives you magic, but it also puts you on Death's shitlist, and ALL the Warlords are active, including Asura. Being a human won't put you on the shitlistyet
>>26473264Because a dude cant be a witch anon. A dude would be a wizard. And there are no wizards.
Fool!We have to tell our story!
>>26473264I think OP wanted to run Witch Quest based on what he said in QTG, so he may be waiting for the vote to swing that way before he calls it.
>>26473281It seems like males just don't have that destructive instinct...
>>26473298Can we be Exalibur?Otherwise, Witch.
>>26473298I'd rather have a witch meister with plans for revenge.
>>26472980Ordinary male.I do not want to be on Old Death's shitlist, Old Death will rip your skin off and use it like a bag and tie you up inside of it. I would like to avoid that happening to us. This is not jolly Modern Death.
>>26473311WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT?
>>26473300Exalibur confirmed for Demon Weapon...Be Witch, Acquire Excalibur...??????Profit?
>>26473299Only know of one instance of someone who was Male who possessed witch powers. Free cause he stole the eye from a witch.
Normal HumanFemaleBecause I can
I voted for male normal human, changing for witch meister.
>>26472980Normal human male.
Excalibur.I WANT EXCALIBUR
Witch all the way.
>>26472980Normal human. Male.
>>26473311>>26473300>>26473347NO. Calling it on the hour. Six minutes left~
Normal human. What's the point of soul eater if you aren't a meister?
>>26473347Yeah you say that now...
>>26473298I change to Witch meister from >>26473074I still hope we can still get the gauntlets/armor weapon if excalifags don't fuck it up
>>26473364>>26473377WE WILL BE EXCALIBUR.WE SHALL BE THE ANNOYING GOD-LIKE BEING
>>26473372Defeating meisters that come for your soul, silly.And possibly infiltrating Death City to steal a weapon.
Normal male human
>>26473364Werewolf male, or Human male if we can't be Free.
Meister, normal human, male.Going witch will make it a bitch on fire to find a Weapon, and get in the way of the armor-weapon broship.>>26473389Because weapons absolutely love getting kidnapped.
>>26473384MY LEGEND BEGAN ON AUGUST 6TH, 2013 AT 3:00 PM>>26473404Naive newfags won't know it.
human maleI'm already a witch in like 3 other Quests
>>26472980> You were a completely normal human before events conspired you and your unusual soul noticed by Lord Death.Male, sure.
Witch>all this samefaggotry
>>26473408YES.WE MUST EXCALIBUR
>>26473381Excalibur will be a side quest, we will get him, try him then ditch him like all before us....Reason for going Meister is that we wanted to obtain that which our clan was sacrificed for...
Regular dude, come on
WITCHPreferably male. Fuck the police.
>>26473415There's just as much samefaggotry on the witch side of the equation.
> You were born a witch, practitioner of magic. Your clan was killed by Death, their souls used by Arachne to create the demon weapons. Now, years later, you have gained power and seek vengeance upon the world. [FEMALE ONLY]We're already in the past, why not be a witch too? See a completely different side of the setting than the source material?
>>26473384Ironically, because this is the past when he's a bit less annoying.>>26473389Silly ignorant BITCH! This is the past! There is no Death City, no meisters! yet[/spoilers]>>26473401Werewolves are not an option either. Sorry~TWO MINUTES REMAIN GO GO GO!
>>26473411This post is full of twelve kinds of shit.
>>26472980Male. Which kinda means normal human.
>>26473450STOP SAMEFAGGINGOP, this is just one guy repeating his post to get his way.
>>26473436Waiting till on the hour is a pretty bad idea and should be avoided in the future OP. It encourages same faggotry.
No clue what Exalibur is in this setting, but fuck it sounds more interesting than anything else
>>26472980Male.Normal Human.Final destination.
>>26473436Voting Witch.also calling that it's going to go to a vote 1 for human male, vote 2 for witch...
excalibur time.Or we become Excalibur....that to be decided.
>>26473436Fucking keyboard.>>26473460Noted. Thank you.CALLING IT! Stop voting now and I'll go a quick glance over.
>>26473436GAH FUCK IT, MY INNER PALADIN CAN'T DO IT.Change back to Normal male from this>>26473381I wanna be gud gai
HETEROSEXUAL FEMALE WITCHFUCK THE GARY STUS! FUCK THE YURI HAREM BULLSHIT!
Shiki.Exalibur can be our tutorial
>>26473476Do you really think that on /tg/ we'll have a female character end up straight here? I warn you all, if we go female witch the lesbianfags will come out in force and go full yuri up in this bitch.
JUST GET ON WITH IT AND LET US BE WITCH EXCALIBUR MEISTER
>>26473486Shiki.Shiki no.Stop breaking other settings.Don't you have maids to be raping or something?
>>26473494This. It happens every goddamn time.
>>26473494God that speaks true for sooo many quests
OP, Excalibur better be our tutorial or something.
Male normal human, fuck you witchfags samefagging.
>>26473464In Death Eater a Meister Partners up with a Weapon, a person who transforms into a weapon.Excalibur is an extremely self absorbed weapon that tells maddening stories and has terribly annoying personal habits, no one can put up with him for an extended period of time. (Except Hero the Brave, until Excalibur started sneezing anyway.) If you DO manage to put up with him he can grant you enormous combat power and flight.But you won't put up with him.No one can.
>>26473528You're the one who is samefagging.
Is it just me or are the people shouting 'Witch Excalibur meister" sort of the worst sorts of fanfic character? "she is a witch, but also a meister and she can use Excalibur and it doesn't annoy her to insanity, and she is also able to use all the star clan's powers and blah blah blah." It sounds like this is going to a very awful place.
>>26473554I personally just want Excalibur to be present. He's hilarious.
>>26473516This is set in a time when Excalibur is wrecking shit left, right, and center, he was one of the Eight Powerful Warriors. The Eight Powerful Warriors were not known for fucking around.He's probably a lot like Death, sure he's cheerful and friendly today despite being the most rage inducing being on the planet, but back 800 years ago he was probably a scary, scary, motherfucker. Don't just assume he'd act like he does in the current Soul Eater timeline.
>>26473531But what if we're Exalibur?
>>26473554Yeah. I mean, getting noticed by Death is a big deal already, we don't need to stack endless templates and become Super Witch Meister That's Also Part Weapon And BFFs With Death.
>>26473533>>26473550at this point either one of you guys could be at fault.>>26473554I don't like it either, but people want him because he's a funny character, but that kinda kills the "dark age" theme a bit>inb42edgy5u
Our Name is Nicholai Kahn.We hail from the village of Loew and come from a Noble Family that has fallen on hard times. While we do have a great deal of land to our name, much of it is useless for farming and our family funds are almost non existant.Still the Kahns have pride and we were given an excellent education in Mathematics, Geography, at least 1 other language, nad have passable skill with a pistol and a sword.Our Family's main source of Income is large furnace that produces Golems and we own an old, but well maintained, golem that serves as both a man servant and a bodyguard.
>>26473601Oh, come on, you need some comedy to relieve the tension every once in a while.
>>26473577Yeah, I agree, the living incarnation of rage is probably not the nicest guy.
>>26473436Normal human male because if /tg/ becomes a witch retardation will happen at least being male gives us a shot at a good quest.
Witch.>>26473476Can we have a bf/husbando from the start? Nothing 'gainst Yuri, but it does get boring after a while.
>>26473635I'l go with hexer here.

>>26473601Dude, when he's chatting with Lord Death he actually takes things seriously and doesn't annoy him.He's the fucking Great Old One of RAGE, do I really need to spell out how back in the Dark Ages he wasn't necessarily light and fluffy like he is in the modern era. He was also probably much more reasonable when wielded by King Arthur.

>>26473763Fuck being sneaky. All out balls out curbstomping. We don't have enough in Quests, which trend toward masterminds and manipulators.
Oh god please no Shota Quest.
>>26473768>No shotaWhy are you alienating all of your fanbase?

Oh God, character creation. Always a shitstorm.
>>26473772We try for msaterminds and manipulaters and just go rip and tear anyway. What you really mean is not enough quests are honest in their characters.
>>26473743No dude maybe if /tg/ were capable of self control shota would be fun, but this is /tg/ we have to start off normal and work our way to entertainment or /tgeviants/ come in and turn this into fetish quest.
>>26473791If someone bugs out because they can't play a magical girl or a shota/loli then it might be for the best that they left early.
>>26473793BROWN SHOTA TOO
>>26473805The shitstorm is the best part, though.
>>26473753I'll check it out. Just post when you gonna do it in the QTG
>>26473801Well yeah.But notice the amount of samefagging has gone down by 70%.And after that Shota part 20%.Geez, I bet this quest won't last 5 threads, Soul Eater is popular and all, but it's basically a grim-derp version of it.
>>26473822Second.>>26473768Have to start getting ready for a thing, but I will try and participate as much as I can.

>>26473883Too late dude though this would be pretty cool.
A Fuck Shotas.>>26473703B: This is good because it would probably give us Golemancy as a skill set and part of our fighting style could involve shit like bomb golems and scout golems.
>>26473926Fuck playing Drone Controller Quest
>>26473926You don't read much Soul Eater do you?
>>26473647Shit. Hopefully I'm not too late...Merc > Sailor > MerchantSoul Perception > Adaptable Soul > Soul Forcesmart > levelheaded > sneakytougher > faster > STRONKUrson

>>26474182HIS NAME IS DIRKHE HAS NO LAST NAME
>>26474192Why not Dirk Diggler?
>>26474192>>26474207Either of these.
>>26474222BECAUSE HIS NAME IS DIRKSURNAMES ARE FOR PUSSIES
>>26474191>Last nameI will join you in punching bit- I mean witches
>>26474299Dirk Jack, famous for jacking a dirk.
>>26474377>>26474237But we didn't roll sailor.
>>26474394Dirks are knives, yo.
>>26474425Interesting trivia: There was a legendary Dirk in Diablo 2.Its name was The Diggler.
>>26473647>Sailor>Soul Perception>Levelheaded fucker>Tougher than bricks>Name: Titus Alstein
>>26474217I second Urson.>>26474438How about Dirk Diggler is a weapon and/or our partner?
>>26474425Primarily used by sailors.
I'm going with Dirk.You let out a gruff breath. This was the seventh night you've spent holed up at this rich merchant fucker's manse, supposedly on the lookout for the serial murderer that's in the area. You scoff. You've seen the type before, rich fuckers who hire on mercenaries like yourself to be glorified doormen, a talking piece for other rich old men to chat about while sipping their teas behind their safe walls. You doubt that murderous bastard is even going to show at this point. Its been days since he's last killed after all. You shake your head. It's not like you can leave yet; the man paid coin and so the Old Man shipped you out here to walk around and look tough. Granted, its an easy task for you to do that, given how your body looks like a roadmap made of scars. Still, for a man of your talents, you'd rather be doing something meaningful or at least go back to the company's fort. You hear the tapping of boots on stone and shake your head. Here comes the merchant's son, returning from a night of carousing with the whores, looking to prod you into a fight again. The young sprat is clearly looking to impress his little entourage of little ass kissers by trying to pick a fight. Ha! As if he knows a fight! He's never been outside this city, much less to a battlefield. You, on the other hand, were practically raised on one. You cool your heels and take on an impassive face as he begins talking at you, his voice like stone screeching against stone."And here's the bodyguard! Remember what I said about him, lads?" They all laugh like the idiotic yesmen they'll grow up to be. "With the way he looks, he couldn't avoid a thing! I'll bet you lot I can take him on, not a sweat!" Death, this guy is starting to piss you off, but he's the client's son, so you can't hit him....yet. "Come on, you bastard! I'll show you why they call me 'Jumping Jack Flash'!" What are you going to do about this asshole?>Your move, players.
>>26474182Hooray!! A quest where we are not a girl, or a sneaky guy, or under age!I support this quest whole heatedly OP.
>>26474472Wait, which traits are we going with?
>>26474492Looks like Mercenary and Tough as Bricks.
>>26474492>Mercenary, Soul Force, Levelheaded, Tough
>>26474472"Whats yur problem, sonny?"
>>26474472>playing an scar-riddled adultThis seems like it's going to entirely miss the coming-of-age psychological nature of Soul Eater. No thanks, I'm out.
>>26474472Keep cool, we are in anime territory.He might bust out some bullshit and wipe the floor with us. Even if he couldn't we should remain professional.
>>26474472Do nothing. We're getting paid to stand around and be menacing, maybe off some lunatic. Plus, this kid is a complete ponce, and we're gonna forget this kid exists the second we get our cash.
>>26474538But we can be like that zombie guy.
>>26474472>"Lets not get too hasty, don't want to hurt ourselves"If he does throw a punch, I think we can handle it, being made of bricks and all.
>>26474472"I'll give you one shot. Make it a good one, will ya?"
>>26474560We no sell the fuck out of it and make him look like a bitch.
>>26474472Respectfully concede. Let him show off, we are not getting paid to kick his ass.
Seems like the most of you want to let the kid take a swing. My, how levelheaded of you>Writing
>>26474538I always thought soul eater was about being crazy and teaching you not to mess with strange dudes for fear they slap you into the concrete?
>>26474612This, we're supposed to be level headed and beating the shit out of your employers son isn't a very level headed thing to do.
>>26474472Stay calm and keep our voice level."Kid, I don't have any quarrel with you. You're the Jumping Jack Flash, mighty warrior famed throughout the world. You win.Now run along and have fun."
>>26474612This he's just a kid and we aren't gonna get hurt by letting have a bit of fun besides I'm hoping that when shit happens and we save his bratty ass he learns a valuable lesson and becomes less shitty.
>>26474641It's not like were fighting him. We're taking a passive route right?
>>26474682I hope he,s the psycho guy, and is spring heal jack.
>>26474472"Before we start, did you want me to fight you, or to take a dive? I want to know I'll still get paid"
>>26474726That's my guess, he just has the serial killer vibe going on.
>>26474720A man after my own heart~IF I HAD ONE!
I can't believe you guys didn't go for Witch or Soul Perception. It's like you want to strip everything interesting about the setting.
>>26474822I can't believe they didn't go for witch either... I was late to the party though, so I couldn't throw my vote in..How about we go and steal a witch's eye or eat a damn witch's soul ourself? It can't possibly go wrong..
>>26474822We can punch witches and soul perceivers into doing the nerd stuff for us.
>>26474822I'm just glad we ain't no shota.>>26474852Nothing could possibly go wrong.
>>26474822Fuck witches man, The weapons were the coolest shit in soul eater besides deaths surprise bitch slap.>>26474852Although I do like the Idea of stealing witch eyes.
>>26474888Metagaming like mad, and didn't that work only because free was immortal?
>>26474822We're not a Witch because we wanted to be a focused Meister, as well as other reasons I'm sure. I just like Meisters more than Witches. Besides, being a Witch would put us on Old Death's shitlist, that is not a safe place to be.There's lots of interesting characters without Soul Perception, it's an extraordinarily rare gift and most people get on just fine without it. Sure we can't do a number of Soul Perception related fuckery things, but we have Soul Force, and hopefully make a partnership with a weapon that works well with that, and we'll develop our own combat style.
>>26474888Witches can use weapons. Kim was a tanuki witch that went into Shibusen to learn how to be a meister. When she was found out and everyone accepted her after a time, she used her healing magic freely while using her weapon.So... You missed out on having BOTH unless we eat a witch's soul, steal an eye, or whatever.There's literally.. LITERALLY nothing a human can do that a witch couldn't do better, and with magic.. Y'know, except not be killed by Lord Death. Even then, we could stay under radar with soul protect.
>>26474903Im not meta gaming I just think it would be cool. I think it only gave him powers because he stole the top witch bitch's eye.Man free is the fucking coolest.
>>26474903Free only couldn't be executed by the witches for his THEFT because he was immortal. As in completely immortal.
>>26474951Have a penis.
>>26474951Yeah but you would have to get those weapons and they probably wouldn't be too happy working with a witch what with death flaying people.
>>26474972>Shapeshifting.>Chrona?Also, your desire to have a penis is a little.. GAY.
You roll your eyes at the little bastard. This kid had been trying to goad you into a fight for the last week and you were getting quite sick of it. He should count himself lucky; if it was anyone else from your company, he'd be little more than a bloodsmear on the pavement. The kid walks and jabs you in the chest with his spindly little fingers. You roll your eyes and utter in the most dead monotone you can muster, "Kid, I don't have any quarrel with you. You're the Jumping Jack Flash, mighty warrior famed throughout the world. You win. Now run along and have fun." He doesn't seem happy about your blase attitude."Why you....." He begins to curse, no doubt for another one of his foppish monolouges about he was the greatest thing since sliced bread and how the heavens themselves blessed his existience blah blah blah. You decide to shut him up....kindly. You tip your head down so your eyes are in shadow and crack a menacing grin. "Now...." you quietly say in a bloodthirsty hiss, "Now sonny, let's not get too hasty....don't want to......hurt ourselves, do we?" The little pissant and the crowd looks up at you, shaking in their finery, as you leer down at them. After a moment passes, you think you smell piss. Ugh, little shits. Still, can't let him go complain to his daddy. Might lower the price. "Tell ya what kid," you say as you stand straight up, cracking your neck, "I'll let ya take a shot on me, so make it a good one, ya 'ear!" You stand back, arms out like a man on the cross waiting while the kid stops snivelling. "R-r-right! You're about the witness a feat only witnessed by a few! The Jack Flash Right Hook!" His brainless entourage cheers as the kid throws the shittiest punch you've ever seen. It hit you with all the impact of a wet noodle. Honestly, you're ashamed of yourself for this, but there was money on the line. You could go the extra distance and take a fall for the kid. Or you could stay as you were and not notice. . >Your move, players
>>26474994Are we an urik hai?I approve
>>26474951Actually, I'm not sure Soul Protect is around yet. It was mentioned that Joe Buttataki was the latest development in the human evolution against the Witches against Soul Protect in specific, so I'm guessing that Soul Protect is nowhere near 800 years old.
>>26474994Take the dive, collect the gold. Maybe kill him later if he becomes a real twat.
>>26474994Or we could take his curled up pinky finger and dislocate it. Self-defense and a perfectly treatable injury.
>>26474994Take it like the brick wall that we should be and maybe give him some pointers.
>>26474994pretend it was a hard hit, enough to make us stagger a little, but not a 1hitKO... This job is effectively playing pretend. why not inflate the kids ego so that he goes and gets the shit beaten out of him by other kids....
>>26475057This, let the kid think he is hot shit It will make our jobs easier in the long run.
>>26474994Just ignore the little shit. Do your duty and collect your paycheck.
>>26474994Don't take the fall or react much, but give the kid something."Ow. Not bad kid. If you used better form that would have hurt more." Give him a few simple pointers, make sure he is forming his fist right, tell him that it's not just the arm but you have to rotate your hips and get your whole body weight behind the punch.
>>26475057second>>26474963how the fuck DID free steal her eye in the first place?
>>26475115We just don't know.
>>26475115I retract this second:>>26475057And second this:>>26475109
>>26475115Being immortal probably made it easier. Even without the dimensional magic he is a reasonably tough customer, he's got his ice magic, turning into a werewolf, and immortality. Not on Mabaa's level by a longshot though. Maybe she wasn't expecting it or he had help.
>>26474822You are able to learn all the Soul Skills later, this was just the starting package.>>26474852You can certainly try to steal a witch's eye or soul......Yes, certainly try....>>26475115Being an immortal werewolf is a big advantage in most things.Looks like most of you want a moderate reaction with throwing in pointers for a freebie. Ooooooookay~ >Writing
>>26475115Well he is a Werewolf, pretty fast too if I remember correctly. Assuming he got the drop on her she'd be a little to busy screaming in pain to actually kick his ass.
>>26475175>>26475179>>26475182just like surprise bitch! >eye ripping noisesOff to prison I go.I dont know If I think him or death is cooler.Does he show up after they kill Azura in the manga?
>>26475274Asura isn't dead yet. But Free did show up in the last chapter helping them fight him.
>>26475300I suppose I should actually read the mangos at some point and find out where the story splits from the anime.
Ugh, what a fucking pain in the ass. Still, can't let him go cry off to daddy. You really like money after all. So just after he hits you, you shift your weight back a step, and looks somewhat impressed. "Ow. Not bad kid. If you used better form that would have hurt more," you say, trying to hold down your laughter. "Here," you say as you grab the kid's fist and form it properly, "Hold your fist like this." He pulls his arm away from you like it was on fire. "Y-y-y-y-you....plebian! Scoundrel! How d-dare you try to give me advice! Come on, this mercenary clearly isn't worth our time." He turns on his heel, scoffing while trying to hold onto his clearly wounded dignity. You shrug and begin to chuckle. You gave it your best shot, so you'll just have to talk to his old man later to clear this up. You look up to the moon, just wanting this night to end so the merchant's other hired guards can take over and get some sleep. You're midway through your longing for the end of this night when you hear a familiar screeching. It sounds like the kid got himself into trouble and is screaming bloody murder. >Check it out? Y/N
>>26475351Let's investigate. He's our job
>>26475351Check it out, we can grumble a bit about it, but we were given a job and we seem to be a reliable sort.
>>26475351>YWell, protecting the client's kid is part of the deal, right? Might as well earnpay.
>>26475348It's Alaska, btw.>>26475351Yes
>>26475351Check it out of course. So long as we are under contract we will do our job.
>>26475351Check that shit out.Lets get dangerous
>>26475348It differs a lot. Like a lot a lot. I'd say the best place to start is around the assault on Baba Yaga.Mifune dead
>>26475471I thought he died in the anime as well?
>>26475515Nope. He's gonna become a teacher.
You push off the wall, grumbling as you walk down the street. "Fucking hell....kid if your old man is dead when I get back, its all on you..." You slow as your foot makes a squelching sound while you walk. Suddenly, the smell wafts up your nose. Its a sound and smell you're all too familiar with. "Blood. Aw hell." You begin to thunder down the street, following the bloodtrail towards the source of the screaming. The trail of blood twists and turns through the congested alleyways of this old berg, going down towards the whore's district. Finally, you turn and see the kid, trapped and cowering. Given that there's the corpses of his little group scattered around, several souls already floating above the bloody flesh. The kid's simpering and recoiling from the blood-drenched killer. The killer walks slowly toward's your client's brat, his bloody woodaxe scraping against the ground, chipped and worn. He's wearing a thick dark coat, no doubt covered in dried blood, and a wide hat covers his face in shadow. But you can still see it...his eyes and his teeth. Fuck, it WAS a madman or at least damn close. The kid starts to look around for an exit and sets his eyes upon you, looking ready to start screaming again.>Your move, players. The ax murderer is between you and the kid. He hasn't seemed to notice you yet.
>>26475587Dropkick the bastard.Protect your money!
>>26475587Tackle him to the ground, try to knock the axe out of his hand. We play this smart.
>>26475532What did he do with that tiny witch he carried around?>>26475587Aww shit nuckas. I say we surprise attack him and try to not die until the adolescents get here.Are we armed with anything?
>>26475587Grab him from behind, hands under the armpits to fuck up his leverage, knee between his legs, and hands around the back of his neck. Pull down, snap.
>>26475587Snap his neck.
>>26475587Surprise dynamic entry. Knock that axe out of his hands to even the playing field. Fisticuffs all day.
>>26475587Motion to the kid to stay silent while slowly approaching the lunatic. Maybe we can get the drop on him. I know we won't get a real weapon until later,m but are we armed at all?
>>26475673Seconded provided we violate his corpse afterwards
>>26475661The witch girl in the school takes care of her. Black Star has mixed feelings about this.
>>26475661You are unfortunately armed only with a dagger in your boot at the moment. The client didn't like you 'bearing uncivilized steel in MY domain, fool!', to quote.Okay, the general theme is to tell the kid to shut up and attack. Do you want to use Soul Force? If you do, you can't grapple him.
>>26475587Put our fingers to our mouth for the "shh" hand gesture, don't make any noise, just indicate for the kid not to say anything. Then surprise attack the serial killer. Move as fast as we can, grab him, slam him into a wall or the pavement so that when we hit him he can't roll with the punches. Then we either stomp on his weapon hand or punch it as hard as we can depending on if we slammed him into the ground or a wall.
>>26475744Soul force sounds more reliable than boot dagger. Fuck it, punch the asshole.
>>26475744SUPLEX THE MUTHAR HUBBARD!
>>26475744If soul force will leave us exhausted no, he might have accomplices. If we can fire it at will more or less then sure. We need to have the strongest we can

>>26475913D-damn it. He was a prick and a useless human being anyway. RIP in pieces.
>>26475913The first roll, which I rolled, was almost as good, and I'm guessing that we get bonuses from our natural skill, talent, and this being a sneak attack and it's not just a straight comparison of dice. Besides, we're one tough motherfucker, trading hits is not a bad thing for us. I doubt that the serial killer is going to focus on the kid once we're on him Soul Forcing his face into the pavement.
Rolled 7, 17, 12 = 36>>26475826
Rolled 7>>26475846>Upupupupupupu~The kid sees you and trembles for screaming, "Y-y-you, Dirk! Save me!" You cuss as the serial killer turns to face you, his mad grin stretching wide within the shadows.You hustle over to the killer, aiming to disarm him but now that he's aware of you, it's a tricky task. Especially with that ax coming in your general direction.>Dodge! ROLL 1d20>Also the rolls for the last were to see if the kid was quiet, to sneak and then to disarm.

Rolled 14>>26476074You roll out of the way easily, the man's unhinged movements making it easy to dodge the ax's swing. He laughs playfully, as if he was funning around, his wild swing leaving him wide open.>He's open! Roll 1d20 to attack or 1d20+3 for Soul Force!

>>26476211How many people are punching that guy?
Rolled 7, 14 = 21>All Soul Force rolls beat meIn that moment, you reach down inside yourself and touch it. Yes it, the source of your power. You grasp it and pull it tight to your 'chest', letting its power surge through your arms and into your fists. "Watch kid," you say as the air around your fists hum with power. "This is how you throw a punch!" you shout as you lash out with a meaty, energized punch. The madman, for his credit, tries to dodge your obvious strike, but you anticipated that he'd try and feinted. Now where he was dodging was a space soon occupied by your fist. His body spins as its thrown down the alley, impacting and cracking the wall. "Kid, get outta there!" you yell just as the kid was getting up and high tailing it. The killer grins as he rises shakily to his feet.>Roll 2d20s. Also a bit of a delay. Need to getting out of storm now yes.

Rolled 13, 7 = 20>>26476309Keep up the pressure, don't give him a chance to get his balance.Use one hand to grab and smash his axe hand into the wall holding it there and the other to Soul Force him in the gut over and over.We can weather any blows from his free hand and legs.
Rolled 19, 10 = 29>>26476309MUDA MUDA!
>>26476373I wonder how many loser flags the killer has tripped.
>20As he gets up, you can hear, hell, practically feel his slimy laughter increase in volume. "Soooooo strong~!" the creature croons, arms twisting around to give itself a hug. Squirming in its own bloody embrace, the ax man leans forward, mad grin slick with drool. "I waaaant it...." It pleads at you, tone changing with the suddenness of a whipcrack. Unmoved by its crazed ways, you keep your guard up, ready to move It serves you well as the ax man leans down all the way. "I waaaaaaaant it waaaaaaant it ititititit! GIVE ME YOUR POW~ER!" It screams as it throws its ax at you.>16You flatten yourself against the walls of the constrained alley, the axe hissing as it barely passes by your chest. The thing seems almost confused. "Huh? Why....did you move? Don't tell me you want to keep that power for yourself! STINGY! STIIIIIIIINGY! I hate stingy people like you! HATE! HATE! HAAAAAAAAATE!" It begins to stomp its feet, the blood of its victims splattering everywhere.>Your move, players. The murdered is disarmed and the ax is behind you. What do?
>>26477048We are not a cop, we are a mercenary. Draw the knife and take him down permanently.
>>26477048Well well well.I think we all know the proper course of action.We must reclaim the axe in the name of justice, and use it to end his wicked ways.
>>26477048Can't we just soul force him again? We don't have that axe to worry about now.
>>26477048Soul force, again, to the brain.>>26477116I love it, but it's not making us soul force harder. Eating his soul should make us soul force harder...
>>26477048Grab that axe.
>>26477164Upupupupupupu~Are you sure you want to grab the axe, anons? You are capable of Soul Forcing him to death.
>>26477082If we were a cop we would be killing him anyway.>>26477048Steal that axe and chop this fool down.
>>26477212>>26477048fuck these are me
>>26477048Good, he's down to unarmed combat. Let's do this.Rush him, Soul Force punch him into the wall again, before he can recover from that Soul Force him again into the same wall, and again and again, until he dies. Force him deeper into the crater we're making in the wall with his body.Don't worry about him hitting us, any blows he manages we can probably shrug off with our massive Toughness, just keep on smashing him in the center of mass and face with Soul Force, don't back off and give him a chance to do anything. No frills, nothing fancy, just Soul Force and a wall. If that wall breaks find another wall or smash him into the pavement over and over, ground pound him. Also, I think using his axe might go badly, I don't trust it.>>26477164Nope. Not a chance. No soul eating.
>>26477212Actually never mind the axe,It could be insane.just stick him with our knife
>>26477230I agree with your soul-forcing. However I'm of the mind that if presented the option, we start going Kishin ASAP.i'll be voting for it. I hope others see the glory in eating human souls for soul forcing harder.
If we can soul force to death then do it. If not then knife.
>>26477048Judging by what he said, the Axe may have some kind of draining ability to it... possibly a weak demon weapon, but more likely just cursed...
>>26477259But how will we get our hands on a sweet ass weapon? we will get our shit wrecked by teenagers if we go kishin.
>>26477286Or the axe is totally super awesome, and just waiting for a hero to take it up.No, its probably cursed, I agree.
So, final decision time. Soul Force? Or go for DAT AXE?
>>26477286This is soul eater. The axe is insane.
Rolled 12, 20, 16 = 48>>26477323CURB STOMP THE BASTARD!

>>26477212The axe is kind of suspicious. Don't use it, but be ready for an attack from behind.>>26477259What motivation do we have to go absolutely batshit mad for power? So far we've been shown as levelheaded, calm, patient, and while a bit grumpy we're not really a bad guy or unfriendly. We really aren't the soul eating type, we've got no in character reasons to do that. And I want to avoid getting put on Death's list.>>26477323Motherfucking Soul Force.

>>26477349I don't even think eating a evil soul puts you on death's list. It probably just has no effect or gives you diarrhea because you aren't meant to consume them(not being a weapon gene carrying human and all.)
>>26477345I recind this vote.Grab the axe. Vouching for full insanity.
>>26477381its impossible to vote for the same thing twice within 5 minutes

>>26477442Your fists crackle with power as you stand across from the screaming insane murderer. You briefly consider picking up the axe and killing him with it. You know, ironic justice and all that. But given how damn bloody the thing was, you err on the side of caution. Besides, the Old Man'd kill you if you pissed around and picked up a cursed madman's axe and brought it home. You chuckle at the image of him on top of the table, screaming in that northern tongue of his, getting your opponent's attention."Youuuu....you find me. . . FUNNY!? You think I'm someone to laugh at! Curse you! You disgusting whoreson! You can't laugh at me! No one will laugh at me! EVER AGAIN!" He screams, a wild yowl to the night as he rushes at you, hands bared like claws ready to kill. You step forward into his attack, getting a light gash on your cheek for your trouble. The side of your lip curls as you bring your arm up from below and punch the man right off his feet. Following the uppercut, you twist around and backhand him, knocking him senseless and into the ground. With a soft hiss, you feel your power escape your grasp, but at this point does it matter? The guy's on the ground, clearly knocked for a loop. But he could be faking it. Insane bastards like playing tricks like this.>Your move, players

Doing stuff with evil souls is way above our paygrade and we aren't going to mess with it ourself. >>26477866We have literally no good in character reason to eat it.

If at some point in the future it's in character to go off the deep end and start eating souls like that we can consider it, until then the answer is no. We don't eat the soul, we don't use the axe, we don't feed the axe.
>>26477866Too soon, man. We need to make nice with death waaaaaaaaay before that point.
>>26477866I say we find out more about our setting before we go around eating things we shouldn't eat.
>>26477902Soul force is an advanced soul skill that requires a powerful soul.We're more powerful than most by default.
>>26477931And we're still a small fish in a big pond in the grand scheme of things.Don't think that because we can deal with a small time Monster or serial killer without much trouble that we're a fucking warrior god.
>>26477931But were not powerful enough. we don't even have a weapon yet.
>>26477931oh shit! are we black star?
>>26477958>>26477994Scrubs who start eating souls and become crazy become like axe mcchoppy over there. If I remember right The gangster Black Star tries to take down regularly ate souls. Nothing good can come of eating the souls or going down the madness route for a few threads at least. We need to be able to control it.
Acting quickly, you pull your dagger from your boot before jumping on top his arms. The man groans but doesn't get up, thankfully. Throwing his face-obscuring hat off, you look upon the face of a killer. Unsurprisingly, it looks just like a normal person's. It doesn't surprise you in the least. Anyone can go mad and anyone can kill. Without a word, you slit his throat and, just to be safe, plunge the knife deep into his brainstem. The body twitches for a few moments before laying still. He's dead.Wiping your dagger off on a clean part of his coat, you get up and go over to the kid who, apparently, wasn't able to get too far after you distracted his attacker. "Oi, kid. You alright?" you bark at him, breaking his panicked reverie."Y-y-y-you....you stopped him....you saved me..." he mumbles as you cross the distance, picking his slack body up. "Yeah," you grunt, "It wasn't much. For a serial killer, he wasn't that much of a threat once you got rid of the axe." The kid nods dumbly. You look over his bloodied ruined clothes. "Hey, you hurt or anything?" you ask only to receive a nugatory head shake in response. You sigh; fucking kid was so deep in shock that he probably couldn't move from where he was, staring down the alley at the bloody red soul the corpse of the killer left behind. "Fuck, what a night..." you grouse.>Your move, players.
>>26478106Back to base, inform bossman that son is safe.
>>26478106Stash the soul and take the kid to his old man.
>>26478106Throw him over our shoulder and take him back home to his father. The Old Man may be generous for going and saving his son, perhaps.
>>26478106What do we even do with all these souls? Put them in a bag and hand them in to somebody?Is that a thing? Soul collection?
>>26478106*Carefully* put the axe in a bag, maybe grab the soul as well. Dunno what we'd do with it, but it seems like something you'd want to not leave lying around.
>>26478067Thats what I was saying. We need to already be a threat to other weapon using guys if we want to have much of a life expectancy.
>>26478172>>26478191You can take the soul or leave it for the authorities. You do not have a bag large enough for the axe at this time, so if you want to take it, you'll have to carry it.
>>26478106Bring him back home, get family doctor who is obviously always there because rich people, get him checked out. Give a report of what happened.Lord Death will take care of these souls.Also, QM, if you find us arguing and get intimidated that something is wrong don't worry about it. Players just sort of argue.>>26478191If we put the axe in a bag, and then in a box, then in a safe, and then in a vault, we have to make sure we never touch it with bare skin.
>>26478227probably best to leave it to the authorities, if they include people who can dispose of it.
>>26478106Put the axe and soul in bags for transport to give to the Old Man. Don't touch the axe directly.Pick the kid up sling him over our shoulder. "Let's get you home kid. You've had a rough night."
>>26478227No bag means we are not touching it. If there are authorities then we leave the soul for them to take care of, that's why we pay taxes. Or, would pay taxes if we didn't dodge them.
>>26478227Leave it. We levelheaded, we knows the dangers associated with open carry.
You hoist the kid up and toss him over your shoulder like a sack full of coins, of which he should be worth in a moment or two. Idly, you wonder if you should do something about the bodies, the axe or those souls, but you figure you can just send the merchant's day guards to go get the constables. "C'mon kid, let's go, you've had a rough night," you rumble as you walk away from the scene of your latest battle. If you could even call it a battle. As you walk down the alleyway back towards, leaving the souls of the dead behind, you never notice the shadow on the roof, its white mask looking at you, inspecting you....inspecting your soul....and finding it...adequate. It vanishes to parts and purposes unknown.Aaaand lets end it here for the night, shall we? My head is pounding and my net is blinkering in and out.SOUL EATER: THE GRIM TIMES PART 1 COMPLETEYOU DEFEATED: 'Jumping' Jack Flash (?)Robert the Greenhorn Serial KillerNow, I'm open to any comment and criticisms.
>>26478446Was robb based on the raincoat killer from deadly premonition?
>>26478446Good for a first thread. Try running a bit longer next time and I will be a regular. Also, might want to try getting a twitter if you plan on sticking with it. Helps players stay caught up.As I said earlier ignore the shit players fling at each other. We just do that.
>>26478446You're gonna want to archive this.And yeah, it was pretty good. Could be longer, but the pacing was fine.
>>26478446When do you expect to be able to run the next thread?
>>26478446Can Dirk's last name be Diggler?When is the next one planned for? Can we have it a little later?Are you archiving these?
>>26478533>a little laterYou bastard its three in the morning here.
>>26478479I'm really very sorry about that. If it wasn't for the storm fucking things up for my internet as well as my goddamn head, I'd be sticking it out for at least an hour more. As it is, I can barely goddamn think, so I'm bowing out. Still have work tomorrow. >>26478471Partially, I'll admit that much, but I went for as generic of a serial killer as I could. Because Robert WAS a generic serial killer. He had only just been exposed to Madness.Also his axe? Completely safe. HOO HOO. Its just not so smart to be lugging around a bloody axe, is it? Its completely normal in every way.>>26478522I'm pleased as peaches to hear that my pacing was good! Thank ye kindly.>>26478524>>26478533I'll be archiving this. I'm hoping to run on Thursday or Friday at about the same time. If you can convince everyone else that Diggler is a good name, then maybe.FYI, my quest twitter can be found here: https://twitter.com/Uncle_SheoUsing it only for quest announcements.Anything else?
>>26478608>Because Robert WAS a generic serial killer. He had only just been exposed to Madness.I knew he wasn't a kishin, he was too much of a punk.
If you ended up running into a full blown Kinshin, you'd be quivering paste. Not just paste, quivering paste.What the Shibusen kids hunt are technically 'evil humans' or 'pre-kinshin'. He was barely either.
>>26478608See >>26474222and >>26474438Fridays are best for me, but I can deal with it otherwise.>>26478573Sorry. I'm GMT -8, I have a schedule in the day.>>26478678A scrub? It can't be helped.
>>26478678Ah. I forgot the names a bit. But I knew he was too much of a punk to be a whatever they are.Well he might be like that one guy with the bag on his head .
>>26478720>>26478720Bitches don't even know about my bags on my head.
Rolled 4>>26478608Are you going to clean up the choice system and allow only the first 3 replies to go through? It might speed things up.
>>26478446A bit of advice, this quest is going to involve a lot of combat, so read through some of the quests that do combat well like Totemist and Joker, I've heard good things about Shadow as well.Make each roll not a single attack or defense, but have us come up with a strategy, plan of attack, or something like that, and have each set of rolls cover an exchange of blows or a few exchanges.Instead of one roll being a punch make it be us catching the opponent's blow with our gauntlet, pulling them towards us, kneeing them in the gut and sending them flying with a Soul Force punch but catching a knife or two in our arm that they threw as they were flying backwards. Aim for some more cinematic stuff and don't sweat covering every single detail, just use the rolls to get a good idea of how we're doing, apply bonuses based on our strategy, strengths, and other circumstantial stuff, and work from there.
>>26478711I reject the diggler name, only because it seems like a joke name everyone will get sick of like in Zeon Quest.
>>26478796Might allow for a bunch of samefagging.>>26478810How can you get tired of anything in Zeon quest?
>>26478796I might. I'll think about it. I'd like to wait for five before confirming at least.>>26478806Well, that's a good idea. This thread was less trying to get good and more trying to get anything at all. However, you have a point. Thank you friendly anon.
>>26478810I actually agree. I have a small soft spot of Diablo, but no last name would be fine. It could even be plot fuel later!
>>26478865I vote for a bunch of ridiculously fancy last names that we never bring up ever.
>>26478832"No one made a red dwarf joke yet!"Every. Bloody. Thread.
>>26478796Only allowing the first three votes means that the people who don't think about it and write short responses are selected over those who think and plan stuff out. It's a terrible way of doing things. Do you really want our direction to be decided by the people who can type out their response the fastest over the ones who give detail? It also means that a lot of people won't have their voices heard. Just wait for a good bit of time, see where the consensus is, and work from there. If two ideas would work well together combine them, if two pieces of dialogue flow into each other modify them and use it. Nobody is going to complain that instead of just kicking a guy in the face we also threw them into a spiked wall.Just putting in a prompt telling us that we're in control is enough. Or putting a list of options with [ ] Other included, that is common and just fine. Encourage people to put in dialogue and specific actions, if people put in good dialogue try to use it, though you already did that this session which is good, if people suggest cool combat stunts try and work them in.
Okay, I've archived the quest under "Soul Eater: The Grim Times Part 1". I hope that is adequate for you all. Anything else you guys want to bring up in the next five to ten minutes?>>26478832>>26478918Fucking Amuro, that's what I got tired of.
>>26478832How? I recall that posts by the same anon are at least 2 mins apart? And I'm sure people respond fast to OP enough to prevent said samefagging. >>26478849Cool, as long as the wait time gets under 20 or so mins between posts. Waiting for an hour is suffering
>>26478924Alright I'll agree on the note of letting the voice of the many heard. But, reduce the variety of pre-set choices to around 3. I don't want a clusterfuck like what happened during character creation.
>>26478796No. I've seen some good things come from people who actually think and type up posts. Going with first 3 like that will just get those who are thinking and just going with the first option they want off the bat
>>26478928Im just worried because if we went for just three we would be some witch right now instead of Buff McCoolguy
>>26478972I could have gone either or to be honest. Both seemed interesting, but I oped for Buff McCoolDude because we might have gone lesbo route as the witch, which happens every single quest.
>>26478918It helps if you haven't seen red dwarf.>>26478927I have not gotten to the end of Zeon quest yet, did we eventually kill Amuro?
>>26479003>we might have gone lesbo route as the witch, which happens every single questYou say that as if we still find a way to do it this way.
>>26478968Ugh, don't remind me. I had originally planned for each of the choices to be fed out slowly, but shit happened and yeah. It won't be happening again and I will try to make generic options available in the future. Additionally, for those curious>Your move, players. Is my You have control prompt. Just FYI.>>26478928Duuuuuuly noted~!>>26478924I tried to do that a bit already, the cribbing combining thing. The encouraging and goading of more than a few words...yeah, I'll be needing to work on that. Thanks friend anon!>>26479003I wouldn't have minded either myself. Originally planned for Witch, but quest general anons convinced me that miesta is fun too. But don't worry, I've got.....plans. HOO HOO HOO HOO>>26479011No, Amuro is eternal
>>26478928Honestly he shouldn't worry too much about post times, speed comes with experience and practice. Sure don't take too much time, but I'd rather wait a bit longer for a longer, meatier, post that accomplishes stuff instead of rapid fire small responses. Don't rush your writing, just try to write good material.>>26478972I'm liking Dirk so far. Sure we're grumpy, but we're patient, calm, and a generally nice guy underneath the scars and gruffness. >>26478865I don't like the Diggler name either. I'm thinking that we have a last name, it's not a particularly interesting one, and we stopped using it after we left out family and got into the mercenary business, nobody cares about your last name when you're a merc, you might not want to associate your nice family with the stuff you do, and you're a long way away from home anyways so your last name doesn't even mean anything to anyone.
>>26479039*As if we wont*
>>26479052>Originally planned for WitchCalled it. Why are you going hoo hoo hoo?
>>26479039>>26479082So then we're gonna waifu now? Expected. unless you guys go homo then you've surprised meIt's at least slightly less frequent, but still plagues quests. although I can't resist the idea of being inside our armor weapon. fufufu
>>26479103'cause monobear from Danganropa
>>26479148Lesbo waifuing is still waifuing.Waifuing is something you just have to deal with on /tg/, like a rash or the sudden onset of hair loss.
>>26479148Ex wife went murder hobo witch on us. Fox holes get mighty cold at night and all you have are your fellows in the company... well things happen.Would be okay with a gay male protag so long as he didn't lisp and act like a caricature.
>>26479103As if I didn't make that obvious. Witches ARE pretty cool, tbh. But you guys spoke and Dirk the not-Jojo appeared.Also the hoo-ing is because I'm part owl. One might say Mono-Owl. HOO HOO HOO!Okay that's it, turning in for the night. Watch https://twitter.com/Uncle_Sheo for quest updates. I'm planning on starting Part 2 on Thursday at 4:30 CST or on Friday at the same time if shit gets fucked up. Eyeing planning a session on Saturday or Sunday, but we'll see when we get there.So without further a do>See you next time, players.
>>26479082Well any romance we do in the future, which'll probably happen, will be heavily dependent on our weapon partner. If we partner with a girl we're probably going to end up waifuing them, it's a natural consequence of a quest character working closely with a girl.If not we may have to look further afield and that'll be more difficult. Honestly the best situation you can hope for in that case if a female/female Meister/Weapon pair and going on double dates. You spend a lot of time with your Weapon and that can get in the way of spending time alone with someone else or just ditching your Weapon. It means that everyone is with someone who understands what it's like to be a Meister/Weapon and fight things for a living, and it means that you aren't going to end up in a vulnerable position due to not being near their Weapon/Meister. Sure you might have private moments with the person you're romancing away from your partner, but generally they'd be doing the same thing nearby and if shit hit the fan it'd be easy to get into fighting shape.
>>26479052I really hope we get the option get get experimented on by a witch or just become an independent demon-weapon or something.. Being a good-guy in Soul Eater doesn't appeal to me as much as the more morally gray ones..Like Stein, or a few select witches.. Or those that embrace madness, such as Justin Law, Chrona, and others..
>>26479362>Justin Law>Morally grayNext you're going to tell me Medusa is morally grey?
I'm quite happy with how this quest is turning out.I think this is the first quest in a long ass time where we went for a straight fighting guy instead of some sneaky fellow.
>>26479362These are the dark ages fellow anon. The good guy's leader ripped his son's skin off and made a bag out of it to keep him in. Things are naturally morally gray.
>>26479362Half the good guys in soul eater are insane, and the rest are partially insane/undead.
>>26479424Me too anon, me too. I missed me some old fashioned fisticuffs fightan
>>26479395I meant to say amoral. My mistake.
>>26479362Just because we're a good guy doesn't mean we're pure driven snow, we're far from it.We seem to be rather calm, efficient, and brutal in our violence. We're levelheaded, we don't seem the sort to bust into full mad cackling. But when there is a threat we end that thread with all due prejudice. Look at today, we punched the killer into a wall, then uppercut him, smashed him into the ground, pinned him, and cut his throat open followed by jamming our knife through his brainstem. Efficient and brutal, we didn't faff about or waste time, we incapacitated him then killed him.
>>26479595And we still managed a snappy one liner.
>>26479595A professional mercenary really. I like it. We are not a ultrabright paladin or a sociopath, just a guy doing his job.
>>26479497And that's why we ought to aim for the armor-weapon, because that seems to be the weapon best suited for brawling, punching, and using Soul Force. Also since we're tough as bricks if we wear an armor-weapon we can shrug off a lot of attacks. Just trade blows with them, accept that we're going to get hit in exchange for Soul Forcing them in the gut, and our Soul Force would hopefully be amplified by using a Weapon, and it'd also be slamming a heavy gauntlet into them. >>26479650Yup, professional, calm, dedicated, and efficient. We're also pretty patient, we lasted a week with Jumping Jack Flash and didn't even smack him and even tried to teach him how to make a fist. We're sometimes a bit of a grump and we like to complain, but when the chips are down we seem to do the right thing. We complained about it, but we didn't even hesitate to go after the kid when we heard screaming.
>>26479717Brass knuckle weapon?Katar weapon?Cestus Weapon?
>>26479757Rocket Fist weapon?
>>26479757Let's keep an open mind. We could find something that would shock us and be even more useful.
>>26479757That would also work for the Soul Force, but armor amplifies our toughness which is great for trading blows in close combat, and means we can use our entire body as a weapon once we get our resonance up. We can kick, knee, elbow, headbutt, and shoulder check enemies. Also, there's the easy jokes about us getting hot and sweaty inside our partner.
>>26479717That's what I was aiming for from the start of the thread. I op for something like gauntlets with a one arm pauldron. Which we later train into beastly armor.
>>26479853I was gonna make a Weapon partner wishlist, but I like this Idea better.
>>26479879>Also, there's the easy jokes about us getting hot and sweaty inside our partner.H-how lewdmah nigga
For Dirk's appearance I can't help but think of him as looking a lot like Marv from Sin City. Big, tough, covered in scars, short hair.
>>26480117I think of him as having medium hair and perpetual five o'clock shadow.
