You are Reinhold, master swordsman and victor of the Royal Swordsmanship Tournament. The King was so impressed with your skill, he personally requested that you be transferred out of the army and into the Royal Guard! Not bad for an orphan who was raised in a brothel in a poor fishing village.The only issue at this point is your assignment... you've been charged to be the personal guard of the King's only daughter Marianne. While she is the vision of loveliness that you'd expect from a Princess, her personality is... well... she seems to be RATHER unpleasant.Yesterday was pretty eventful. You spent the day with Princess Luciana, had dinner with the King, sketched a portrait of Nicolette, and got a magic lesson from Sylvie.And then you actually managed to conceptualize Script, the basis of using magic!But hopefully, your legs won't fall asleep today...>Guard Rank: RAT>Congratulations, you are now a pathetic Rat!>Snakes eat rats... but rats are ranked above them?>Though she still isn't fond of you, the Princess dislikes you a bit less!>You're still not considered a person, though.Thread archive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Princess%20Guard%20QuestTwitter:https://twitter.com/QM_Archelon
You sit up in your bed, fully rested and in -quite- a good mood on account of last night's accomplishment. Deciding not to waste any time, you quickly get bathed and dressed, and then look out your bedroom window... ...and once again, you've managed to wake up just before dawn. With a few hours left before you have to go meet the Princess for breakfast, you wonder how you'll spend this bit of free time...>where do you go?
>>27492988>NeuschwansteinHey OP, can you tell me where you get all these pics of that castle?Been having troubling finding good ones myself.
>>27493001read the etiquette guide
>>27493001Mess around with script, like conceptualize curse words and lewd things and see if we can read what it says.
>>27493001Read the books we borrowed, so that we can return them to the Library.
>>27493071agreed... (more or less)i think trying complicated stuff like that right from the start is silly, we should try to see what we can do with basic shapes/colors first oh, and i'm not late for the party, it's a first
>>27493001Get up and find a good place to watch the sunrise, either outside or inside, with a book or two. Get some reading in while watching the dawn.
>>27493047Google image search, "Neuschwanstein Castle.">>27493065You already read through that book last night.
>>27493001Books: The Reading.
>>27493144What other books do we have? I know there's the art guide and one more.
>>27493158Granache History for Dummies. We can get the gist and then return everything to Gerhard then wait for Marianne at the usual spot.
>>27493158History book, if I recall.
>>27493158Two books left:>A beginner's guide to the joy of portraits>A history of the kingdom of Granache
>>27493212>A history of the kingdom of GranacheWe've had this one out for longer. Lets return the etiquette guide before we meet the princess too.
>>27492988whoo i though you were doing this tomorrow?
>>27493212>A history of the kingdom of GranacheWe've left that one sit for a while now
>>27493212>A history of the kingdom of Granache
>>27493212>>A history of the kingdom of GranacheWe had this one out for too long.
>>27493212>>A beginner's guide to the joy of portraits
>>27493212Read the history book.
>>27493245Decided that I'd do one today anyways, though I'll probably be heading to sleep aound 3AM.>writing
>>27493047I might be able to dig up some vacation photos if you'd like them. Can't guarantee many or good quality though.
>>27493287so quick thread or just gonna leave this open?
>>27493144Is there a reason you picked Neuschwanstein in particular?
>>27493332what?is thiss for a quest or something
>>27493363>>27493364>>27493380might have been posted in the wrong thread. that happens every so often.anyway...we really should get a family tree map of the Princess's family so we will know if she has any living relatives we should know about but don't so far.
>>27493313That would be pretty cool, if it's not too much of a hassle.>>27493358I just really like that particular castle, is all.>back to writing
>>27493620Not to mention, it would be seemly for us to know her lineage at least back to the founding of the Kingdom.
>>27493789I'll see what I can dig up. These are a family members, I didn't see my own on the first pass.
Though you did read that book about "sensitive ladies" last night, you still have two other books that you borrowed from Gerhard. Since you have a bit of time, you decide to read through "A History of the Kingdom of Granache."According to the book, Granache was founded about 1500 years ago by Sivarios, an elemental spirit of water. Though the kingdom was originally about twice its current size, the entire area was thrown into chaos during the Fall of the Old Kings, and various warlords managed to whittle off their own bits of land during this time.After about fifteen years of war, a new army was formed around the son of Sivarios, a human. Together with his close friend, a foreign mercenary, he led his forces to victory over his enemies and eventually reclaimed nearly all of the kingdom under his name. But as he was but a mere human, he doubted his ability to maintain power as his father had, and so he split the kingdom into two parts.>[1/?]
>>27493918>not going to the hallway and reading thereoh shit we're gonna get caught up in our book and realize we didn't get there on time
Here we go. I didn't take too many variations, of course it's not easy to get a good angle.
>>27493918>[2/2]The new king kept the southern portion of the kingdom, retaining the name of Granache. The northern region was given to mercenary who helped him regain his throne, and that was the birth of the kingdom of Marconetti.The book then goes over the next nine hundred years or so of history, with Granache and Marconetti maintaining a close relation throughout the entire time. Together, they fought off invaders, helped each other during times of famine and plague, and made it to the current age of peace.The final chapter ends with a passage marking the birth of the king at the time's two sons, Thierri and Raoul. With two heirs to the throne, the writer seems to be hopeful about the future of the kingdom.Having learned quite a bit, you close the book and then place it on top of "A gentleman's guide to sensitive ladies," making a point to return both books to Gerhard later.>what do you do now?
>>27494024Check the time, make sure we're not late.If we're running low on time get in place to meet the Princess, if we've still got a fair bit of time get some practice in with Script.
>>27494024Get the drawing book?
>>27494024Return the books.
>>27494024Now, practice with the Script to describe basic objects, colors, and concepts.
>>27494024check how much time we have if we have enough time read the drawing book.
>>27494024>head out to meet the princess>meditate while we wait to get closer to better magic useQM, is there pocket watches or ANY clocks in this world setting?
>>27494024go wait for the princess, mess with script while waiting
>>27494066>>27494044We might need the lewd mage's help here she did say that she would help us at this part and she isn't that busy.Also check the time before we make any choices.
>>27494076There are clocks, yes.Reinhold doesn't have one.
>>27494024go out to meet the princess and while we wait practice Script
>>27494024There's no way we read that much and are not latetime checkAlso we should invest in a bag of some sort... just to carry things... like books...
>>27494024The two kingdoms should be reunited. I can see what the old king was getting at.
>>27494094Maybe we should put our first paycheck towards getting a pocket watch, then?
>>27494024Check the time before making any decisions.
>>27494118do we even get paid?
Here's the castle across the way.
>>27494024See if the princess is still asleep.
>>27494118seconding this.also, go to hall and attempt to meditate while we wait.
The view out a window.Would you like more castles? Possibly also cathedrals.
>>27494184Our legs fall asleep anon i suggest waiting and asking the mage if we can find a way for it not to numb our legs, also check the time.
has any one getting these 503 errors?
>>27494209I can completely see us just writing nonsensical gibberish in the middle of the dinning room hallway laughing like a little kidcaptcha: detection haternig
>>27494259i just ogt one strange how this thread is still working.
Well everything back in order
>>27494287>>27494286well it seems that it's working nowBRING ON THE GUARDING
You've just read an entire book......realizing that you pretty much lost track of time, you decide to head out and figure out what time it is. Getting up from your desk, you attack your sword to your belt, open your door, and..."...Melanie?"Surprised that you opened your door just as she was about to knock, Melanie lets out a squeak as she loses her balance and falls backwards."Um, are you okay?" you ask as you help her back to her feet."Yes... sorry about that," Melanie says as she adjusts her glasses and brushes off her skirt.>what do you say?
>>27494298>you decide to head out and figure out what time it is.Didn't we have a window?
>>27494298Offer to help her get up, if she is already up then ask what she wanted.
>>27494298you proceed to help her up, apologize for bumping her but you gotta run, and run like the dickensmay as well bring the books
>>27494298"Nah, it's my fault. I probably shouldn't have been so sudden in opening the door.
>>27494315she was there to get us so at least let her talk to us anon.
>>27494298"am i late?"
>>27494298>Sorry i surprised you. I need to be on my way to meet the princess. (man, 4chan crashed or what)
>>27494364no. it was cloudflare having a major outage.
>>27494376No it wasn't. The site still functions if Cloudflare does down.
>>27494388what is cloudflare?
>>27494388then what happened? i was afraid the FBI raided the site and shut it down.
>>27494396It's a suite of things that make the site faster. Without it, we might frequently get load time-outs, but not 503s.
>>27494388boards (the 4chan server) cant handle the traffic 4chan gets, so it explodes if traffic gets routed to it which is what happened due to cloudflare's cdn going down. cloudflare itself was inaccessible, so they couldnt even display the static page they show in case 4chan breaks.
>>27494406Probably moot fucked something up, that's what it usually is.
>>27494407He said he was pretty new in a different thread even though he has crazy good luck with dice.
>>27494424I can't even remember when Cloudflare came in. It can't have been very long ago.
>>27494428Yeah, it was only a couple years.
>>27494428about three years
>>27494428If you were gone for a while you might have missed it, I think it was about the same time moot added captcha.
>>27494515I just have a really bad sense for the passage of time.
"No, it was my fault," you say, laughing nervously. "Um... am I late?"Melanie is one of Princess Marianne's personal maids, so there's a fair chance that she set her to your room to fetch you..."No, not at all," Melanie says as she adjusts her glasses again. "The Princess won't be going down for breakfast for at least another forty-five minutes," she says, doublechecking with her pocketwatch."Oh, okay," you say with a sigh of relief. "So, what brings you to my room?""...ah, that's right..."Melanie fishes around in her apron pocket, and pulls out a small bag."I ran into Mr. Arnaud on the way to the Princess's room, and he instructed me to deliver this to you," she says as she hands you the bag.You then open it, and find..."Whoa! Ten gold coins!? This is enough to buy a house, why would Arnaud..." you stammer in utter disbelief."That is your first month's pay," Melanie replies matter-of-factly."...I get paid THIS MUCH? I mean, this is like a third of the prize for winning the Royal Swordsmanship Tournament, to think that this is a month's pay for the job itself..."You were pretty happy with just the room and food, but to get paid such a large amount of money..."Yes, the King likes to make sure that important personnel are paid well. It keeps them loyal and reduces the chances that they'll be lured by bribes. And as the one charged with protecting his only daughter, your position is very important," Melanie replies, looking at her pocketwatch once again. "Did you have any other questions?">how do you reply?
>>27494620Oh man. Does this mean we can hire our own maid and butler and buy our own mansion now?
>>27494620Do i have day offs and where can i get a watch.
>>27494620Welp, gonna need to buy stuff now. Excellent..."No, I'm good. Thanks for delivering this."
>>27494620Time to save up and buy a posh house.
>>27494634You already have that anon since you can order the maids and butlers around and you live in a castle.>>27494635this
>>27494620>where did you get that watch? and where can i buy one? i do not wish to be running late for my job.
>>27494657It's not the same. One room, really? C'mon, anon. We don't even have a foyer.A Philipe Patek isn't a bad idea either.
>>27494620"I seriously get paid this much? I mean seriously? Where would I get a nice watch like yours?Are there any orphanages in the city? I honestly have no clue what to do with most of this money other than give it away."
>>27494620Desire for pocketwatch intensifies.
>>27494635this we need a watch
>>27494658>>27494635these sounds good since we didn't even know what are days off are.
>>27494648sounds good.we are going to in town to do some shopping next time we have a day off.A watch, some better art supplies, some clothes ... what else?
>>27494683I suggest going shopping first and then giving away whats left over, it still should be a lot
>>27494681Reinhold was pretty fucking amazed by how big his room was. He's not liable to want to go out and buy these things.
>>27494650we're already IN the poshest of houses. what we need to do is bank up the money for doanut and better gear when it comes around. we will be taking a trip out of state soon. so save it up for now. BTW QM. Is there banks in this world setting? we should invest some of this loot safely where we can.
>>27494683I have a feeling we would go to a brothel and give the money to the kids (maybe even pay for their schooling)
>>27494721>better gearWe already have a masterwork sword and enchanted armor gifted from the king. The only "better gear" we could buy is some wizard to magic up our sword or priceless artifacts that we won't actually be buying anyway.
>>27494721I still think we should go buy stuff, but we already had a thread where we have the best gear around and it was stated it was the very finest.
>>27494721the kingdom would provide us with whatever gear if we just asked. if they pay us this much monthly, they wont hesitate to buy a gear worth our yealy salary. no need to spend on that.We've already gone through this shit.
>>27494721>better gearDo you people not read these threads?
>>27494709arrange it so that 2 golds(?) from our salary goes directly to orphanage(s) every month.get some presents for kids and visit an orphanage.
>>27494733maybe we save up cash for a bit and start a training center for kids to help them learn skills for later in life
>>27494720Oh anon, clearly you've never had a job, spent your paycheck, and then realized how much more you want.
>>27494733>>27494715Brothel, orphanage, something like that. Kids who could really use a bright spot in their life. The exact details aren't overly important as long as the money is used well.Get kids toys and toy swords, for an orphanage maybe some books for people to read to them, some candies as a treat for them, new shoes and clothes. That sort of thing.
>>27494709>>27494779These seem good to spend the money. I cant think of anything else.
>>27494779How about another 2 for the brothel kids.
>>27494784>clearly you've never had a jobNope. NEET 4 lyfe
>>27494634No because we have nowhere to quarter them. And there's enough servants in the castle anyway.>>27494784I haven't either. I save my money up. Reinhold has food and lodging, I guess he could need a horse but I reckon the king will provide that too as needed so for now, save and/or invest.
What the hell is this philanthropy? Chances are Reinhold doesn't even know what that word means, nor has he been characterized as particularly charitable.
>>27494620Can we get some other form of comparison for how much this is worth, not sure how much a house is worth in this world.
>>27494803giving money to a brothel so that they could better care for kids? thats not really reasonable. We'd need to arrange for those kids to be moved to an orphanage and help them there.
>>27494681whoa there, we're new to the job. don't go jumping ahead just yet. >>27494720forget houses. i wonder if we can upgrade our steel sword to Mithral or adamantine sword. (i hope those exist here, or something close)
>>27494819we have everything provided to us and extra gold we will be wasting the money on books and supplies and toys so why not give some away.
>>27494775Hey, Archelon, are there any primitive forms of guns in this setting?
>>27494819its not philantrophy. its helping people you can empathize with.
>>27494829they could have parents there.Speaking of which why were we raised in a brothel if an orphanage existed?
>>27494853small fishing town.
>>27494853Bastard son of a whore, probably. whorehouse was our parentage.
>>27494853We were in a small town without much of what anyone would call social services looking into these things and the madam called dibs.
>>27494842Yes, god forbid we spend the money and enjoy our life. Sin!>>27494853Because they don't, why else would be a kid raised in a whorehouse?
Again. We dont need to spend money on our gear, kingdom would provide us with any gear we could wish to have. They could provde us with far better equipment than we could buy even with our generous salary.Go read old threads.
>>27494803>>27494733So on our days off we'll go to brothels with all our money and come back without it. This will have no negative ramifications on our social life.
>>27494886instead of talking bullshit just suggest how you want to spend money and it'll be done if its not something entirely moronic, which i doubt it would be if you even had any suggestions.
>>27494898it was only one guy who wanted gear every one is wonder weather to save up, give it away, or buy stuff and give away from whats left over.I think we should do a combination of the three.
>>27494918I suggest we spend our off-days swording hard. We've already peaked natural human talent, so getting any better at that particular skill will yield amazing results.
>>27494721>>27494743>>27494754>>27494755>>27494770>>27494834I see what he's doing. He's thinking of pathfinder/D&D gearing up rather than /v/ gearing up. magical gloves, boots, rings getting a set of "shield other" rings for us and the Princess would be perfect. we take 1/2 the damage she would normal take if some one was to hurt her, so she does not take it all and might keel over
>>27494923I said we should buy a Philipe Patek and a mansion.
>>27494853It can be handy to have a kid around to do chores and shit.
>>27494918Eh not really since we aren't that well known to the common working folk.
"Where could I get a nice pocketwarch like yours?" you ask."Eh? Um, this? It's not really that..." Melanie stammers, looking a bit embarassed. "I bought it in town a few years ago.""Hm, I'll have to find one the next time I'm out," you reply."Ah... that's right," Melanie says, snapping her fingers. "The King will be spending the day with the Princess tomorrow, so you'll be off then.""Eh? But if she's with the King, won't both of them need protection?" you ask."The King is quite capable of defending both himself and the Princess," Melanie says, adjusting her glasses. "And Sir Vincent is sure to be with them for at least part of the day, so you have no need to worry."Melanie then checks the time again, and then looks at you."I need to go meet the Princess now, so I suppose I'll be seeing you later," she says with a bow."Um, see you later," you reply.With that, she hurries down the hall and into the Princess's room.>what do you do now?
>>27494931This is anime not vidya, there is no gearing up and taking damage is bad even if you're tough because a wound is a wound no matter how fancy your swordplay is.
>>27494951Return the book.
>>27494951>"The King is quite capable of defending both himself and the Princess,"stop being so cool king dude
>>27494951Get ready and go wait princess in our usual place.There isnt that much time left.
>>27494951We didn't wash up yet, did we? That needs doing.
Rolled 17>>27494951meet with the princess
I feel like we're forgetting the fact we don't own a bagI feel like a bag and a pocketwatch are great investmentsAnd then giving 5 gp back to the king to be a kiss ass
>>27494951[x] Return the books we've finished, go wait for the princess.
>>27494973we still have 48 minutes thats enough to return a book.
>>27494951Return books, try to learn how to detect Gerhard.
>>27494951Head for our usual meeting spot. We've got to be cutting it slightly close.
>>27494962>taking damage is bad even if you're toughNot if you can man up and work with it. Even if you've been run through, and you're bleeding from your head, and you're coughing up more blood, and your eye isn't working and all you hear is static.But even if we're a batshit insane animu style protagonist with a sword obsession, the princess is still very fragile and delicate, and most definitely not a man.
>>27494984>And then giving 5 gp back to the king to be a kiss assYou obviously have no idea how to compliment a high ranking person.
>>27494984thats more like an insult anon.
>>27494951Go to usual place, bring pad, sketch hallwayBegin drawing of princess coming down the hallway that we work on every morning painstakingly
>>27495017Quit being a faggot.
>>27494984>we don't own a bagYou sure? That seems like the kind of thing we might have that just never got mentioned. We might have some other handy trinkets too.
>>27495017that should wait until we read that sketch book and get better art supplies and some practice. we sould be able to give it to princess as a present.
>>27494951Why don't we work on script while we're in the hallway
>>27495003>most definitely not a man.We haven't checked. Not that it's our business, but don't go making assumptions.
>>27495030we do own a bag , its that its never mentioned again pat the first thread.
>>27495045Even if its a trap, they are by necessity exceptionally bad at manning up, so I stand by my statement.
>>27494951 later we should ask Nicolette and magegirl to form ULTIMATE ROYAL GUARD ADVENTURE TRIFECTA with us and go to town with us to show us around. We can also buy a watch then and buy 10 rings. We won't even wear all of them, well just have them.
>>27494845Only gunpowder is in the eastern continent, no guns..>>274948241 copper is enough to buy a small loaf of bread.25 coppers is one silver.25 silvers is one gold.>writing
>>27495140i doubt our days off would be the same day with nicolette.
>>27495175In the real world? Unlikely.But this is a quest....
>>27495166We can buy 625 loaves of bread. That's a lot of fucking bread.
>>27495175No reason not to ask. The ULTIMATE ROYAL GUARD ADVENTURE TRIFECTA needs to start coordinating schedules anyways.
>>27495246No, we have ten gold. Plus our tournament winnings, because I doubt we spent them all.
>>27495246Scratch that, we can buy 6250 loaves of bread.
>>27495190Lets go to beach with princesses, takamaru, nicolette, sylvie, and maids to have some fun then. This is a quest after all...
>>27495258houses are pretty cheap in this setting it appears. still a good salary though.
>>27495285Remember that Reinhold is an orphan who lived in a whorehouse and then the army, he probably doesn't have very high standards.
Actually once we return our read books we should ask ninjrarian for some books on responsible finances. Get some medieval investments going.That or buy the fanciest chest in town to start jewhoarding.
>>27495344Do we're going to be a jew next? Can't we just focus on what we're good at?
>>27495344We could probably mention something about financial irresponsibility to Gerhard and keep it in character. It'd be a good place to start, at the least.
>>27495359We were the jew this whole time. You just weren't aware of it.
>>27495373I just feel like we're branching out too much. We're a swordsman, but now we're an artist, and a jew, and a magician, and all sorts of shit.
>>27495342>>27495344We best set up some investmentsMaybe we can buy out the brothel we grew up in some point in the future and have it torn down
>>27495359Isn't this the sort of thing wed be expected to do in high society? Gotta get that princess approval - king ain't giving no scrub a last name if we don't show we're looking for longterm stability.
>>27495387art is a hobbie and magic is to help are swording
>>27495387art is a hobbie, people have those you know. we are not a megician, we are just trying to learn it and probably will never go far. jew thing has nothing to do with anything. and you are just babbling.
>>27495396See, now that makes sense.
>>27495414If we don't manage to blow all of our paychecks, we'll be fine.All these fucking number captchas.
>>27495260Princesses aren't around, that's the whole reason we're getting a day off.>>27495344>we should ask ninjrarian for some books on responsible finances.This is a capital idea.>>27495387Doing lots of things is important, and making some investments is pretty basic recourse for someone with money - and pre-telegraph investments don't require baby sitting. However I do agree that we need to sword more.
>>27495396And leave a small fishing village without a brothel? Even if you dont like it they a part of society and they are necessary. You can make them better but tearing it down wont help any. Another one will be built because its needed.
>>27495469>Princesses aren't around, that's the whole reason we're getting a day off.Sarcasm...Ever heard of it?
>>27495469it's called fanservice, Anon. Girls and lady parts in the sun.
>>27495519>lady parts in the sunThey have nude beaches in Granache?
Rolled 9, 15 = 24>>27495531Nah dude, in this world lady parts include elbows and ankles.
>>27495531Considering the country's landlocked, I doubt it.
>>27495531They wear something when going to the beach in other places?
>>27495531They will once we start investing seaside property.
>>27495519this is a medieval setting. women and men probably have different parts of the beach to be on. royalty more so.
Putting the bag of coins in your pocket, you head downstairs to wait for the Princess. Though Melanie said that she won't be down for a while, it never hurts to be early, right?Standing in your usual spot in front of the entrance to the dining hall, you look around... there are a few maids and butlers scurrying to and fro, and nothing particularly interesting happening... so you decide that now is a decent time to practice conceptualizing Script."Sword. Knife. Fire."With each word you say, Script forms in the air in front of you. It lingers for as long as you concentrate on what you said to form it, vanishing the instant that your concentration slips. With this in mind, you say a few random words and see how long you can hold the Script that they form.This continues for a little while, until your attention is broken by the sound of a familiar voice."...you've actually learned how to use magic? I can't say that I expected you to even be capable of such a thing," Princess Marianne says, an expression of slight surprise on her face.>how do you respond?
>>27495549It's more "fantasy anime" than "total historical realism".
>>27495559"You'll find that I'm full of surprises, Princess."
Beach thing was just sarcasm to... i wont even explain it. GOD...
>>27495559'I can stab people better if I know what they're doing. Breakfast, your highness?'
>>27495567for the love of god, stop trying to write dialogue, its all terrible
>>27495559>>27495567This works.>>27495569Your on /tg/ sarcasm might as well be moon runes to them.
>>27495559Brush it off, tell her we got help. Being witty at times is one thing, but humility is a virtue for good reason.>>27495569Just because something isn't serious doesn't mean it's not interesting to discuss.
>>27495471EhhI was thinking more along the Lines of: oh you heard I was raised in a brothel? What brothel?Also it probably would feel good to settle the past
>>27495567Wrenloft shut up.
>>27495559"I've also been planning longterm financial investments this morning, but that's slightly less magical."
>>27495567are you trying to sound like Monique?
>>27495559>>27495567this sounds terrible>>27495587this sounds better>>27495571this sounds hilarious
>>27495567Remember the last time you wrote dialogue Wrenloft?There's a reason nobody voted for your characters at the start of VMQ2.
>>27495559"I thought it would help with protecting you. It would help protect you right prices?"
>>27495559"Well, uh, yeah. It seemed like it could be helpful to my job, and I had the opportunity to get some instruction. I'm not yet skilled by any means."
>>27495559"I wouldn't want to bore you with a samey routine every morning, Your Highness."then bow.
>>27495571Let's go with this, and not what Wrenloft has to say.
>>27495610>>27495611A combo of these two get my vote.(i want to be snarky this morning)
>>27495559"I am quite capable at improving myself at what i do, princess. That is the main reason i managed to rise to the position of being your bodyguard. Now i work even harder to improve since i have such an important duty."
>>27495559It amazed me that's for sureHave you ever tried it princess?
>>27495559Honestly, I can imagine Reinhold just being toob giddy with magic to make a witty replyProbably something along the lines of "it's only script so far. I'm learning"
>>27495613>>27495611This works great so something like this."Well, uh, yeah. It seemed like it could be helpful to my job, and I had the opportunity to get some instruction, plus I wouldn't want to bore you with a samey routine every morning, Your Highness."
>>27495569So you were just pretending to be retarded. Gotcha.
>>27495648This sounds like something we would say, something honest but laced with sarcasm.
>>27495613Seconding thisWe must be an act for her every morning
>>27495648That's a pretty good combination of the better dialogue snippets presented.
>>27495662We were clearly raised by the sassiest black woman in the brothel who had an afro to block out the sun.
>>27495624>I am quite capable at improving myself at what i do, princessi like this part.
>>27495648Fuck all these sound great, but i like the way this sounds since we aren't being too formal.
>>27495648Welp i forgot to add the bow part.
>>27495689We must learn to clap out our sylables
>>27495731Nah it has to be the triple finger click.>i know you did not just say that, mhm princess>snapnsapnsap
>>27495689This should be cannon. After all, we already have Asians, why not Blacks?
>>27495765that almost as ridiculous as that twerking post in the hollow quest thread.
>>27495784Stop tempting me.There are black people in this setting, though I didn't really plan on having very many show up in this quest.BUT NOW YOU MAKE ME WANT TO HAVE A SASSY QUEEN BEE-TYPE SHOW UP>back to writing
>>27495881So we can bitchslap her everytime she opens her mouth? Sounds good.
>>27495881>not having a sassy black princess put Marianne in her place as Luciana laughsDo you even even even, even, bro?
>>27495881Its all good she can even come to the party.she knows us from the brothel.
>>27495909From the kingdom of Harlemlot.
>>27495909>sassy black princessThat would also explain why a foreign princess would be in Granache.
>>27495924Comptonlot, yo. We west coast, nigga.
>>27495947We're right in the center. But "Harlemlot" rolls of the tongue better than "Detroitlot".
>>27495947I was going to contest but remembered we're on the western continent, iirc.
"Well, uh- yeah," you blurt out, having been taken by surprise by her sudden arrival. "It seemed like it could be helpful for my job, and I had the opportunity to get some instruction," you explain."I see," the Princess replies."Plus, I wouldn't want to bore you with a samey routine every morning, Princess," you say with a bow.You can hear the maids surrounding the Princess start to giggle, but she herself only sighs and turns her back to you."Come on, I only came down here because I knew this is where you were waiting," she says, motioning for you to follow."Eh? Why, is there something going on?" you ask, hurrying behind her."Yes. Luciana is about to head back home, and I would like to see her off," she replies.You follow the Princess to the gate without saying anything else, though her maids continue to chatter amongst themselves and to her as you walk. But as you get closer to the gate, the maids grow quiet and eventually fall back as the two of you enter alone.The gate area is filled with several guards, surrounding the same carriage that brought Princess Luciana to the castle the other day. As you aproach, they seem to move out of the way, and..."Marianne! Mr. Reinhold! You two came to see me off? How thoughtful!" Princess Luciana exclaims as she hurries towards the two of you.>how do you respond?
>>27495947Man that was a silly thread.
>>27496007Respond with a smile, but be alert.
>>27496007Let Marianne speak first then say "It's a shame to see you leave princess Luciana"
>>27495881she's a sassy strong independent black princess who DON'T NEED no BODYGUARD
>>27496007"We will not have another chance to see you for three weeks, we wouldn't want to miss it for the world."
>>27496007>"The Princess can't have enough of you. I do not know if we should not let her accompany your suite. She'd be much happier."I have no idea. just ignore me.
>>27496007Smile but step back a bit let the two princesses talk.
>>27496042>>27496038these seem best.
>>27496007Let the princess speak. Don't speak unless directly spoken to, and even then only respond with something along the lines of "may your trip home be a pleasant one."
>>27496104We had pleasant conversation with her yesterday. Don't do this again.
>>27496104And a nod to her bodyguard.
>>27496122ThisSeriously, she isn't our friendShe's the princess's friendJust fulfill etiquette and let the princesses have their goodbye
>>27496198She seemed to quite enjoy our company yesterday. We don't need to be so standoffish and boring in her presence.
>>27496198She took lengths to be friendly and flirty yesterday, and we established conversation. It would be rude to ignore her now.
>>27496254noone is saying to ignore her. just a simple farewell.
>>27496264Not saying anything, as was suggested is a bit cold.
>>27496238We're not here to be anyone's friend. The princess is not interested in having us (or anyone, really) as a friend. I see no reason we should not oblige that. In fact, princess Marianne seems like a very very serious and calculating kind of person, and I respect that in a person who will eventually inherit the kingdom (queendom?). We would do well to match her demeanor, at least when with her.Letting the princess speak first is not being boring, it's showing proper respect to royalty.
>>27496264not saying anything wasnt the suggestion though. in the quoted post;>Don't speak unless directly spoken towe were directly spoken>and even then only respond with something along the lines of "may your trip home be a pleasant one."so the suggestion was say a simple farewell and wish a good trip.and a nod to bodyguard was added.which is all good and well.
>>27496294She was cute and flirty with the border guard fag too. Just saying.
>>27496294Your bsns is too srs.
"Of course I would," Marianne says with a warm smile on her face."Oh Marianne, you're the best friend ever!" Luciana says, hugging her tightly."I don't know about that, but... thanks," Mariane replies as she returns the hug."It's a shame to see you go, Princess. You too, Takamaru," you say, nodding to him.Luciana then turns to you, starry-eyed."Oh, Mr. Reinhold! I'll miss you too!" she says, trapping you into a hug before you can react."U- um...""Haha! I really will miss your wit," she laughs, letting you go. "And it's ever so much fun to tease you!""I'm not sure that I'll miss being teased, but..." you say, laughing nervously.As the tearful goodbye continues, you hear footsteps approaching... and see -that-person.->[1/?]
>>27496323its her character trait to act that way, these are not not always (if ever) her real thoughts.i though everyone would've got that by now, but appearently a lot of people haven't.
>>27496348That Mother Fucker
>>27496348Just ignore him. Seriously. Ignore.
>>27496348Whatever we do, nobody get punched today.
>>27496362We already knew that he was going to escort her back. It's not a surprise. I wonder if we can find a good excuse to kick him in the balls.
>>27496348Are you sure we should be effected this much by her teasing?(we were raised in a brothel, unless we are acting)
>>27496348Give border fag a heartfelt goodbye.
>>27496372A swift kick in the ass might work better.
>>27496371Considering his character, i support this. Ignoring him will make him durious with nowhere to direct his anger.
>>27496375It's probably the fact a princess is doing these things.Kinda hard to know how you are allowed to be
>>27496371>>27496387This sounds childish honestly.
>>27496375We were surrounded by a lot of sex, lewdness, and so on. But actually affectionate physical contact was probably in short supply. So yes, we're the sort of person to be more embarrassed by getting a hug or someone saying they like us as a person than we are seeing a woman getting two dicks shoved up her ass at the same time.
I say we less Takaworu (or something) handle him if shit hit the fan.
>>27496401True.>>27496407Thanks for the chuckle.
Pre-empt him with a heartfelt goodbye saying what a good job he does and how secure the border is with him at the castle everyday.
>>27496435This sounds good and we should be decent liars.
>>27496407Oh god, Reinhold is the handholding is too lewd joke personified.
>>27496435QM hasn't finished posting yet, hold your horses.
>>27496348"Princess Luciana! As promised, I have come to escort you to the border," Monique says, bowing deeply."Ah, Mr. Gilbeault! I'd almost forgotten your promise!" Luciana replies with a smile."No matter, I'm sure that your time here at the castle has been quite busy," Monique replies. "Ah, and Takamaru-san! It's nice to see you as well!""Hm," Takamaru replies, nodding.Monique then turns to Princess Marianne."It's always a pleasure to see your lovely visage, Princess Marianne!" he says, bowing once again."...thank you," Marianne replies, stonefaced."I heard from Princess Luciana that the two of you are close, I hope that you were able to spend some time together?""That I did."Monique bows once again to Marianne, and the turns to Nicolette, who'd entered the room a few moments ago."And Miss Nicolette! I do apologize for the other day's... unpleasantness, I do hope that you won't hold it against me?" Monique says as he entends his arm towards her."While it -is- in my blood to do so," Nicolette replies, glaring at him, "I suppose I should act as a noble should and accept your apology," she says as she takes Monique's hand and gives him a FIRM handshake."Hahaha, you certainly are a strong one," Monique laughs nervously as he tries to shake the pain out of his hand.>[2/3]
>>27496527>[3/3]Monique then approaches you."I suppose it's nice to see that you are doing fine as well ...though I do hope that you didn't do anything to offend Princess Luciana while she was here?" he says as he extends his hand towards you.>how do you respond?
>>27496568"Certainly no more than you did." If he wants to be civil, we can give him that.
>>27496568"What kind of a boorish lout would offend a princess?" Smile at him.
>>27496568"Nothing of the sort. Have a safe trip."
>>27496568>"That is for the Princess to judge. I did enjoy the last few days myself. You?"
>>27496568Shake his hand, "No I didn't, and I trust that you will do your best not to offend her as she leaves also."
>>27496568"I certainly hope i didn't" Shake his hand.
>>27496575>>27496580I can't decide which burn is more sick, but one of these. Probably >>27496580
>>27496568"I am well and the Princess was delightful. Have a pleasant return trip.">accept hand shake. Shake it firmly. Very firmly.
>>27496598This please. No need for moronic exchanges.
>>27496613I'm not sure they work as a combo. One's playing innocent and the other is confrontational.
>>27496598thirded to keep it simple
>>27496598This is also acceptable, if the burns are too sickening.We outrank him by position, but he outranks us by birth (well, probably most people do), and I'm not sure which is more important.
>>27496609Agreed. These 'witty' exchange attempts just sound idiotic and are unnecessary in this situation.
>>27496626Play the innocence then.
>>27496655I wasn't trying to be witty. I was trying to be civil.
>>27496655Coooome on, let's be at least a little sassy.
