Across the worlds connected by the sea of dimensions, many magic-using civilizations have thrived. The era of large scale conflicts and weapons of mass destruction have come to pass. The Time-Space Administration Bureau has brought order and peace to the remains of the Belka. However, even in this era of peace, conflict still exists.It is the year 81 of the New Calendar, and a revolution is coming. A cursed poison threatens to destroy the foundation of the modern world. It all started with a book and a ring; this is the fated meeting between the boy, Tohma, and the cursed girl, Lily. The Gospel of the Silver Cross Incident begins now. Between either your new family or your revenge, which will you choose to live on?Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Nanoha%20FORCE%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/BelkanSniper>Sorry about last time, today we finally finish the current arc…
>>30420960Your name is Tohma Avenir, and you are being attacked by the White Machine, the Mage Killer Killer Ricardo JOKER! To make things worse he is glowing RED! “Zero Driver!” The anti-eclipse hunter, Ricardo, rushes at you once again, preparing his red blade to recklessly cleave you in half. It won’t stop to hunt you until it has tasted your death. Honestly that thing will not leave you alone! But luckily you have Lily with you, she has somehow arrived to save you, and with her help you can now use the full power of the Gospel of the Silver Cross. Still the power of the white, no the now red machine is not something you should underestimate, it has almost killed you twice before! Plus those Grendels infected are nearby, if you give them the chance they might try to attack you again, plus that Enforcer Mira is fighting the Black Machine and Isis is handling that Sniper that the Grendels brought. Besieged by enemies on all sides, you feel that your options are limited, but you just need to hold on: the TSAB will arrive in 10 minutes!Still just focus on the current situation, the red machine comes to attack you on CQC, what do you do?>Sword it First! >Shield that attack! >Shoot that thing!>Dodge, and counter! >Look for Mira, 2 vs 2! >Other? >Call Isis?>Call Mira? -Tohma HP: 15/15 VL:100%White Machine HP: 17/40-3 Turns for TSAB estimated arrival! 1 Turn more of Red ShiftBattle Mastery: Make one of the Twin Machines retreat before the TSAB arrives!
>>30420991>Dodge and talk to Ricado
>>30420991Belkan, can we no longer do an action and call one of the girls at the same time?
>>30421138Sure, but if you fail the roll then you can't call. You must complete the Dodge to have the time to call one of the girls.
>>30420991>>30421185Alright, then change >>30421115 to>Dodge and talk to Ricado>Call Isis?
>>30421280Sure, what do you want to ask Ricardo or talk to him about?>Why are you attacking me! >Why do you hate Eclipse Drivers?>What are you?>What is this HOLMCROSS you speak of?>Can't you stop attacking?>Why did you kill the exploration team?>Other?
>>30421325>Can't you stop attacking?>Why do you hate Eclipse Drivers?Depending on his answer we might have to give him a TohMAN speech.
>>30421443Lol, but anon, Touma is just a normal viral killer supersolider, even a normal mage could beat him! Well lets roll for dodge! 5x d100DC is 25>40 (Body) +10 (Infight) +5(Blessings of Silver-Lily Passive) -10 (Attacker I) -10 (Attacker I) -10 (Attacker I)
Rolled 27>>30421519>-10 (Attacker I) -10 (Attacker I) -10 (Attacker I)I thought you said he could only use this move once?
>>30421638A new Thread is a new Seccion! That refreshes all skills like Red Shift, also the three Skill effect is once each skill, so he can use Infight x3 once and Attacker x3 and so on.
>>30421709Still one roll, get a 1 and save yourself, I do not want to write a Dojo this soon!
Rolled 13>>30420991>>30421734It seems the dice are fans of your Dojo scenes Belkan.
>>30421666>Critical Failure!!! >Luckily not a bad end! But your voice will not reach Mr. Ricardo! >Also calling Isis is cancelled! >Writting! >>30421762Naw, just a crit failure will not mean a dead end, but another one could!
>>30421789>Critical Failure!!! >Luckily not a bad end! >But your voice will not reach Mr. Ricardo!>Also calling Isis is cancelled!!Lucky my ass Belkan. That's worse than dying.
We've used up all our bad luck for this session on our first roll.I feel as though we can only have good things happen to us from now on.
>>30421789You can’t take that hit, that red sword will just break your protective amour with ease! “Lily help me dodge!” >Right: BM Select- Dodge! Wait what? You try to turn your body to the side, but suddenly you feel as if something overrides your actions and suddenly you fly to the right- straight into Ricardo’s red sword! “Gah!!” Your stomach flares in pain as the red blade pierces your belly, but that is not all. The red machines draws another sword handle from his armor- creating a magic beam blade which joins its brother in your body! >Critical Hit!Hp: 15->6/15>Tohma!!!! Dear Saint Kaiser –not Vivio- this hurts. Lily’s voice cries out to you, but you can’t concentrate on it, the only thing in your world is pain! “Admiring your pain: Good, wicked Eclipse, I won’t allow something like you to continue existing in this world!” Ricardo Joker draws out his laser blade on the left hand, keeping you pinned with his physical blade! “Die, monster! There is no place for you in this world!” The red machine swings a sword at your head, it seeks to behead you! You wanted to try talking to this thing, to make it stop attacking you, but the pain stops you. You feel that the only thing you can do right now is to handle this machine! You will die if you fail, what do you do?>Stop it with your hand! >Zero Break- Blow yourself and the Red Machine! >Ask Lily to shield you, disengage and have her stop the red machine! –Danger for Lily?>Attack Ricardo first!>Other! >Ask Mira for help? >Raven's Cry? - Ricardo and TSAB Options worsened! 2 Turns until the TSAB arrives! Last Turn of the Red Shift- Next turn it ends!
>>30422057>>Stop it with your hand!He's underestimating us. He shouldn't be doing that.
>>30422159Very well, lets roll! 5x d100 >DC is 35 >40 + 10 (Infight) + 10 (L=Defender!)+ 5(Blessings of Silver) -10(Attacker I) -10(Attacker I) -10(Attacker I)
>>30422346>Get back to back nat 100's>Déjà vu>I did the exact thin when fighting Not!SquallI love this quest, so why does it hate me?
Rolled 83>>30422319Summoning nat 1
>>30422394It is not hate, it is that you really like the Kaisah Dojo! >Now to look a cute pic of Ein somewhere!
>>30422346Next time we should try to kill the things designed to kill us instead of trying for small talk.
>>30422582You guys still have two rolls, or do you guys give up and take the Dead End?
Rolled 15>>30422319>>30422628I hadn't realized that was the case.
Rolled 25>>30422319>>30422648If nobody else is gonna roll, I'll just take care of the last one.
>>30422648>>30422518>>30422420>>30422346Another Crit Failure! >Dead End 03 Unlocked... why?
>>30422752You try to raise your hand to stop that blow, you gather all your strength and courage to stop that blade.But you fail! Your head rolls off your body, and you see your body suddenly becoming a fountain that sprouts red.Those showers of red colored the dark sky red. Beautiful! Who knew the human body had such a spending function.As your head falls to the ground below, you can only see one thing. The crying face of the girl you failed.Sorry Lily, it looks like you will need to seek another Driver…>Dead End 03It appears you have met an unfortunate event, yet a noble king offers you advice. Do you take it?>Yes>No This time there are no more miracles...
>>30422778>>YesSure, let's get a move on.
>>30422916It is here, Kaisah Dojo 02This is a strange corner that connect the world of NFQ and the world of /tg/, a place where peace can be given to souls that have been lost. You find yourself in a dojo, not unlike the ones you used to frequent with both Vivio and Ein, but the ones who stand there are no master and student. There are two idols, beautiful girls dressed in cute clothing that charm men with their dances and voices! “Welcome to the new Idol Dojo! Were we make each one of your deaths a happy one, my Tohma!” This is Vivio, who spins around in front of you as she shows off her pink dress. You think that if you are lucky maybe you could get her to dance and sing for you in private!“Nevertheless, Tohma, why are you returning to this sacred place so soon? I can understand that you miss our company, but I do hope that your time apart from us has not made you into a weak man who lacks the strength to carry his goals!” Ein, at least you could have tried to follow Vivio and tried to dance a bit. At least smile for me, my dear friend! Dying is painful, my king! “Tohma, seriously, why are you here, this was supposed to be the moment where you unlock the true power of the Gospel of the Silver Cross, where your powers finally take their full form and you finally met your true partner, that girl Lily! And you know what you did? You died!” “Tell me what you did wrong! Come Tohma, my dear friend reflect on your sins!” Ein asks you to think about your error, what was it?>You tried to talk to the Red Machine!>You needed to run away! >You fought alone!>You defended too much.>You underestimated your opponent. >Other?
>>30423003>>You tried to talk to the Red Machine!Double 100 was pretty unlucky, but I stand by this being a mistake.
>>30423132Well writting... I will let Ein tell you why you failed!
>>30423003>You fought alone!>>30423132That was not a mistake, we're not saying this.
>>30423003“Ein, my error was that I tried to talk with that red machine!”There was only one error here, you showed those things mercy! You shouldn’t have talked to a machine that tried to kill Mr. Scrya! But Ein crushes that notion, “Wrong! This is not that sort of grimdark setting filled with glum and despair, what do you think this is? Meduca? Tohma, as long as you have a honest heart and work hard, you will always have the chance to try to understand your enemies and even try to make them your allies! Even if you have to blow them up with superior firepower like your predecessor the white devil did!” Ein pumps her fist as she flashes you a determined grin! Wow she is really getting fired up for this! “Tohma, talking to others is always an option, even if the chances are low, maybe you could reach them! No, your problem was that you hesitated too much! You hesitated to attack the Red Machine and suffered for that!When it entered Red Shift, that Ricardo gave up on all defense and just concentrated on killing you, that meant that it was totally open for you to attack it with no prejudice! Still, I have to say that you did something right this encounter, it was separating those machines. Those two are twin machines, whose firepower can only be shown when the two fight together, Tohma at your level it is too dangerous to let those two fight together, keep them apart at all costs.” Wow, Ein is really good at this, maybe she can really become a teacher in real life. At least she should become your tutor. “What do you say Vivio? What did Tohma do wrong?” >[1/2]
>>30423416Wait, Vivio was too silent… as you turn to your dear friend, you notice she has been glaring at you! “Ein, who cares about that! Tohma, you know what that hussy did to you, don’t you? She kissed you! She stole your lips that are mine! Tohma why did you let her do that!” You do not know what to tell Vivio, that had been something that was out of your control, really you would have never expected for that to happen. Still thankfully someone intervenes for you!Ein, being the best friend that she is moved to support you! “Tohma, understand the error of your ways, go back and win it. You must come back, to m- to us!” Ein holds Vivio back, as she bides you to leave before Vivio kills you and you double-die ending up in the Devil Dojo! Thanks Ein, you are the best wingman ever! Kaiser Dojo 02 END! Do you reload the last save?>Yes>No No More MIRACLES left in man!
>>30423530>>Yes>double-die ending up in the Devil Dojo! Oh, so that's how we get there?Gonna have to try that out next time.
>>30423602“Die, monster! There is no place for you in this world!” The red machine swings a sword at your head, it seeks to behead you!You wanted to try talking to this thing, to make it stop attacking you, but the pain stops you. You feel that the only thing you can do right now is to handle this machine!You will die if you fail, what do you do?>Stop it with your hand! >Zero Break- Blow yourself and the Red Machine! >Ask Lily to shield you, disengage and have her stop the red machine! –Danger for Lily?>Attack Ricardo first!>Other! >Ask Mira for help? >Raven's Cry? - Ricardo and TSAB Options worsened! >>30423602That was a joke, the next Devil Dojo will happen...When you meet the Unbreakable Darkness of the Book of Darkness and are killed by it.Joking! Still that one is another cute devil. Try to collect them all!
>>30423667>>Attack Ricardo first!Take out his dominant sword arm. If he has one that is.>Call Isis
>>30423752Very well, lets roll! 5x d100>DC is 55>40 + 10 (Infight) + 5(Blessings of Silver)
>>30423834Now things are rolling! >SuccessWhat do you ask Isis? >Come back and support me! >Check also for the White Machine it should be coming!>Go rush to the Black Machine, Help the Enforcer! >Take Care! Can you handle that Sniper? >Other?>Do not call her.
Rolled 37>>30423869>>Go rush to the Black Machine, Help the Enforcer!I'm not sure how things are going, but since time was taken to remind us to keep them apart, probably for the best to ensure that is going to continue.
>>30423981All right, writing.If the two machines fought together from the top... it would have been a dead end.
>>30423869>How are you holding up?>>Go rush to the Black Machine, Help the Enforcer!
>>30424021The sword comes at you, seeking to sever your neck, but you won’t allow it. Gathering your strength and your courage, you instead swing your sword at it first! “Crimson-“ You strike that red machine with all your might and then, “SLAAAAASSHHH!” your sword ignites into flames! The resulting explosion sends Ricardo away from you, forming an opening! “Lily now!” >Roger, Dis-engage! Lily quickly separates from you, reforming behind you, as she aims her hands at your enemy, “Divide Zero Extend!” The now familiar flow of power is released by Lily, and suddenly it engulfs the red machine sending it crashing down towards the earth! White Machine HP: 17->9/40Now you have some space! Time to contact Isis! >[1/2]
>>30424362“Isis, you there?” [Wait…Tohma right now is not the time to talk!] Isis sounds like she is in trouble, but it does not hurt to ask.“Isis, how are you holding there? Are you alright?” [Yeah fine, I just need to get closer this sniper idiot to beat her, it does not help that she has this stupid spider tank mech helping her. But do not worry about me, trust this cute and professional bodyguard to hold them back for you! <3!] It surprises you that Isis, as a regular mage, is holding so well against Mage Killer like those Grendels, just what is this girl?“Right thanks, Isis after you finish here, go and come where we are, and I need you to get that Black Machine!” [I will see what I can do!] Well that is out of the way, you turn to Lily who is now besides you, gathering power to heal you, “Lily, thanks for the help, I would have died without you.” Tohma HP: 6->9/15“I…” It looks like she does not know what to say, but in an instant she shakes her fear and answers you, “I’m sorry for messing up the dodge, I almost got you killed, Tohma!” “Don’t worry, it is fine now. As long as you are by my side, there is no problem.” You turn towards the crater where the red machine is, now it has spent all its energy, so it should be wide open for you to attack it. What do you do?>Love Love Divide Zero! > Go and sword that red machine! >Go and help Mira against the Black Machine>Go and help Isis! >Seek the Grendels, they should be nearby>Ask Lily to engage with you again! >Go and interrogate Ricardo, you have the advantage! 1 Turn until TSAB arrives? No more Red Shift!
>>30424386>>Go and interrogate Ricardo, you have the advantage!Does making one of the machines giving up fulfill the Battle Mastery objective?
>>30424494Yes, but good luck with that.
>>30424386I really think leaving both alive will bite us in the ass, but only one other guy is voting right now.
>>30424386You need to know about this thing, this monster that has attacked both you and your hero, Mr. Scrya! Taking Lily back inside you, you rush down towards the crater there the injured, no longer red, white Machine lies, its armor is broken all over, and it looks like it has no magic left to fight. Now it is the time for some answers. Holding this machine at gunbladepoint, you prepare to ask…>Why are you attacking me! >Why do you hate Eclipse Drivers?>What are you?>What is this HOLMCROSS you speak of?>Can't you stop attacking?>Why did you kill the exploration team?>Other?1 Turn still for TSAB Arrival, this does not count as it is not a combat roll. Next one will.
>>30424633>>What is this HOLMCROSS you speak of?Pretty much all of the others are obvious, except killing the exploration team, which probably isn't useful information. This one, though, could probably save our life.
>>30424633>Why do you hate Eclipse Drivers?>Can't you stop attacking?Let's try this without the crit fails, shall we?>>30424527If you've got an argument for a different plan of action I'll totally hear you out..Right now I'm just aiming for passivising our enemies via friendship because I'm not too keen on the effects actually killing people would have on Tohmas mind.That and I hate killing people I think are cool.
>>30424698Where do you plan on steering him, then? Because when we started, he had a group of people he was dead-set on finding and killing, and I want to see him through on that.
Just for the sake of being fair...>>30424698 This is what leads to his motives and maybe a TohMAN speech>>30424695 This leads to backstory and some info for another arc.
>>30424695Anon has a point. Changing >>30424698 to>Can't you stop attacking?>What is this HOLMCROSS you speak of?also>HOLMCROSSI love you Belkan
>>30424744>I want to see him through on that.Then we might be at an impasse, because I think that a genuinely terrible idea.>>30424750So mutually exclusive? Ugh, I really want my motives and TohMAN speech
>>30424819Well you can combine them, but the more you ask him to talk the less he will want to say.
>>30424819>genuinely terrible ideaI knew you were going to say that, but would you care to specify.And I generally disagree with asking his motivation, because I don't think it will help, I have no major objections if you want to risk him cutting out and asking both like >>30424854 says we can.
>>30424754Also, I am glad that someone got the reference! I was surprised when I found that the guys that made those games made a Nanoha Game too. Hell, it even had metal men too.
>>30424854>more you ask him to talk the less he will want to say.Thanks for the clarification. Then all I want to ask is>Can't you stop attacking?Everything else I think we can deal with in one way or another.>>30424925>care to specify.Sure. This quest is all about choosing Tohmas path. I just don't see how going for revenge murder opposed to acceptance/forgiveness/apathy/anything does anything except make Tohma unstable, have us slaughter people, and make us fight all our friends.Also if you don't thing his motivation will help, I feel exactly the same for >What is this HOLMCROSS you speak of?It won't tell us anything we can't deal with later.
>>30425037So the end questions are going to be >Can't you stop attacking?>About them Holmcross? Yes or no?
>>30425235An acceptable compromise.>Yes
>>30425037>make Tohma unstableI don't think he's going to turn into a complete mess.>slaughter peoplePeople die. It happens, and when people wrong you, it is expected you would wrong them in turn.>fight all our friendsSome of them already know we were trying to do this, and I doubt they'll all pull a 180 even that aside and go from friend to foe.>>30425235Yes, I have no problem with both.
>>30425275>>30425279Very well, I will now start writing.
>>30425279>I don't think he's going to turn into a complete mess.Tohma was already something of a mess. He started this journey because he felt he had some duty to kill the people why destroyed his home but was losing the will to due to becoming happy with his life.>People die. It happensThat's an incredibly irresponsible and naive approach to people being killed. And when you're the one doing the killing it's downright hypocritical.>Some of them already know we were trying to do thisAnd they're barley okay with the idea that we're even thinking about it. If we start they're going to fight us and we're not going to be able to convince them it's justified.What happens if we go that route is more or less obvious and I want no part in it. I'd rather see how far this conspiracy goes.
>>30425303The TSAB should be arriving just about now, but you need to know more about this guy, no matter what! “Tell me, what is this HOLMCROSS that you speak off?” This white machine, Ricardo, introduced himself as part of a group called HOLMCROSS, maybe there were more MKK machines like this one?Ricardo can only laugh at your question, but after a moment he stops, “Que ironia! You have defeated me… I guess that means I can at least answer your question, Zero Driver.” The white machine does not even bother to try to attack you, but just answers your question.“We the HOLMCROSS were a living metal army created during the times you have come as the Ancient Belka Era, we were soldiers made to fight darkness and evil, such as you. Living weapons made of steel and iron, whose power would never falter unlike you the flesh of humans. We the HOLMCROSS had taken the fruit of our world, the power form the ray lines, and refined it, using the power we had gathered to become strong, strong enough to spread our people across the sea of dimensions, along with that lesser race hecha de carne, that we took as our servants. What good that did us.” Somehow you feel some heavy bitterness out of this thing, and you hate it. Because you think you could understand this thing. “I think you can guess how our people ended, monstruo. The fire of the wars in those times sweep our civilization, and in the end it all was reduced to ashes. That was the proud history of the HOLMCROSS, learn it monster!” Ricardo laughs at this, at the irony of telling someone like you his most important memories. >[1/2]>Those who understand where these guys came from… in a way that fact that they are here is the BAD END of another group of heroes.
>>30425527Alright then. I can see you and I will not be reconcilable, and I would put odds on it being your win.
>>30425572You have no time for this, to feel pity for this thing! “Tell me, why can’t you stop attacking me?” “Hahahaa, you dare ask me that, monstruo! I know what you can do, I know what that thing en tu sangre, calls you to do! That is why I won’t stop, I will kill you!" The word this thing spout are true hatred, hatred for you. "I won’t allow you to do, what your kind did to my people, I won’t allow you to spread your poison amongst cities and kill them. To turn those who survive into mosnters that can only exist as long as they can keep killing.I know your song monster chosen by the Silver Cross, one day you will use that thing to kill others. Just like your kind did to my people. Just like your kind turned our servants into monsters that slaughtered us. You can use that power because you are a killer, we both know it! So I will stop you before you kill, to spare this world the grief, monstruo!” Ricardo raises his arm pointing at you, and through his words you feel his hatred, the hatred this thing has for all that bear the poison called Eclipse in their blood. You feel that you have to do something, to tell this thing something, but what can you?>You can’t blame me for the past. I had nothing to do with those events. >You are only using that as an excuse, you like to kill too. >I am not a killer, no matter how much you say that, I won’t kill. >Excuses, you are just hiding the fact that you failed. Weak! >Idiot, you are living your life incorrectly. With that power you have, you could have stopped those events from happening again! >Write-IN?>You choose the correct focus to engage Ricardo, this gives you some bonuses for your next roll. >Write-in can give you guys bonuses for the persuasion roll. Come write your best TohMAN speech.
Rolled 37, 3, 18 = 58>>30425834>Idiot, you are living your life incorrectly. With that power you have, you could have stopped those events from happening again!>You can’t blame me for the past. I had nothing to do with those events.Combine these two? Maybe by suggesting that it help us AVOID a massive war in the future? A system of checks and balances is not impossible in this type of situation.
>>30425834>TohMAN speech."I won't give in to this poison. And I won't allow you to wrote off the hope that's still left in this world. If you want to be certain that the Silver Cross is never used to kill others then help me stop anyone who would try and use it for such a thing!"
>>30425834It's also worth noting that the most poisonous thing in this conversation is him. Ah, but this is probably a serious moment.
>>30425892Warming the dice eh, also I do not understand this system thing you are talking about. >>30426030I like this one...So I will wait 10 mins for another vote, if nothing happens then I will try to combine these two options into a single one for a roll.
Rolled 96, 30, 38 = 164>>30426121Checks and balances. Several equal powers have direct authority over eachother to ensure no one part of the system becomes tyrannical.
>>30426284Saint... the only way he could be able to do this, would be if he just stayed besides you all the time ready to strike you if you ever lost control of the virus, something kinda hard to do.
Rolled 58, 46, 50 = 154>>30426315I'm talking a long-term solution, man. Not just for the moment. There's ALOT more that has to happen before we develop a utopia that allows the EC virus to be around without people abusing the shit out of it.
>>30426385Well you are kinda right about it, making the EC virus safe enough for civilian use is something very hard. How funny, that is almost something Mr. Hades Vadein would have said. >Well, roll me a char check, 3x d100, Dice penalties from his hate of you! DC is 45! This high is almost a miracle!
Rolled 94>>30426446>>30426385Amusingly enough the only short term equivalent to this system is putting a bomb collar around Tohmas neck and giving the remote to Nanoha.
>>30426474She would press it. No hesitation!
>>30426474>>30426495Well Success! Writing!
>>30426499We're working on it.But I suppose that's just a slightly less long-term plan.
>>30426539You… you understand what this thing feeling. The greatest sin in this word is…To be too weak to protect something. But that does not excuse its action! “You can’t blame me for the past! You and I know that I had nothing to do with those actions!” You were not the one responsible for his suffering, and had nothing to do with it! You drop your sword and use your right hand to bring the thing level to your face.“You talk about how I gill give in to this poison and become a killer, but you are wrong. I won’t give in to this poison, and I will not allow you to write off all the hope that there is still left in this world. If you want to be certain that this Gospel of the Silver Cross will not be used to kill others, then help me stop anyone who would try to use it for such a thing!” At this point you release the white machine from your grasp, and in a single motion you swing your right hand punching Ricardo JOKER straight in the face! “You Idiot! You are living your life incorrectly! With the power you have, you could have stopped those events from ever happening again! If there is something poisonous here, it is you, who has given up hope for the future!” The white machine falls down to the ground, not moving anymore, defeated not by your swords or magics but by your words, the words that shattered his delusion of hate! However before you could move on to help Mira with the Black Machine… >[1/2]
>>30426709“Come, roar in the darkness, miserable servant of the black bird! React! Release Divider Replica 923 Reacted! Shoot! Infinity Cylinder!” >Dead END SHOT! A beam of dark energy shoots from the center of the island to beyond the horizon, the very power of this attack, you feel as it twists time and space by merely existing. This is a dimensional collapse attack, a miniature Arc-en-Ciel; the stronger battleship weapons that the TSAB Navy uses, capable of destroying a world with ease! The island itself shakes at the ferocious power of that attack, this sort of thing, it should be enough to sink even a high class battleship! …. Oh no! Soon, the shaking ends, and to the small clearing on the ground where Ricardo JOKER crashed enters a woman, clad in black armor, she is someone who you have not met, yet you recognize. Curren Huckebein, the woman who had helped you, the woman who had tried to save you, the woman who tried to guide you to these powers.The woman who wielded the white grimoire- the other half of the Silver Cross. The woman who was your equal. “Good Evening, Tohma, pleased to meet you. my little Raven.” Standing there was the one person who probably understood you and your powers the best. This was Curren Huckebein, the one who rose above the legacy of destruction of the Eclipse and turned this weapon of despair into her only hope. >Miracle Union (II) ENDNext Time: Black and White (I)
>>30426746This woman… you instinctively know it, that she is dangerous, not because she is older, not because she is also infected like you…But because she knows how to kill and is willing to do it. “Well once again, let me tell you that I am pleased to meet you, my Little Raven, and you too Reactor Plug, I guess that now I can’t call you broken anymore, Strosek the 4th.”The weirdest thing about this woman is the care she feels for you. She expects great things from you, she understands your pain and your hopes, she is willing to listen to hate and your rage! This was someone who shared your fate! To be honest this is the first time someone has cared this much for you, and you find it strange. Not even Su-chan, not even Ein, and not even Vivio had ever stared at you with such eyes.She would bless you if you became a saint, and she would bless you even if you became the next devil! To her, you were above such things. “Tohma we do not have much time, but I must ask you this, soon the TSAB will arrive and take you into custody… if you want to have a chance to escape… come with me! Tohma if you want to have a chance for your revenge, come with me. Even if you do not wish to join my family, come with me if you want to be free, my little raven.” What?>Ask her what she means?>That tattoo of the blue wings….>Hear her out some more!>Ask her a question?>Accept, I will go with you, we can work the details later.>Decline, I am sorry but… I will face the TSAB. >Other
>>30426880>Hear her out some more!>That tattoo of the blue wings….KEEP CALM KEEP CALM KEEP CALM
>>30426880>>Ask her a question?It's probably worth asking her where she plans to take us, first.
>>30426949>>30426955These two... Sorry but you can keep calm... you won't go back on the words you told Ricardo, right? Also surprised someone remembered those wings.>Writing!
>>30427039You try you best to ignore those blue wings… those blue wings that brought you calamity and started this path for you. It is hard… very hard… but you manage, at least for now. Because the words you told this machine, because Lily is besides you… because there are people waiting for you at home.But more importantly, because she can kill you so easily.“Let me hear you out, Curren Huckebein.” You are surprised you manage to say this so clearly, “Where do you plan on taking us?” “Good question, I am glad that you have learned to pay attention to details, my little raven,” Curren smiles as she brings her finger to her lips, acting coy, “I guess I can tell you now, I would bring you to my Airship, the Esquad Huckebein, from there on I would be willing to take you to wherever you might need to go, as long as it would be in my power. So what do you say my little raven, are you willing to come with me? We do not have much time, if you value your freedom from the TSAB I am your only option.” She is right, what do you do?>That tattoo of the blue wings…. The mines of Vaizen…>Attack her… Instant Dead End Not Joking. >Ask her another question?>Accept, I will go with you, we can work the details later.>Decline, I am sorry but… I will face the TSAB. >Other
>>30427214>>Accept, I will go with you, we can work the details later.Okay, run now, talk later. Asking about the wings could take a while, and then we would run out of time.
>>30427214>>Decline, I am sorry but… I will face the TSAB."Right now there is something I can only find in the TSAB. But this won't be the last time I see you."That best girl title isn't just for show.
>>30427349Wait, what did we need from there? Only thing I can remember right now is an arrest warrant for, among other things, terrorism.
>>30427343>>30427349Will wait about 10 minutes for you two to come to a decision, be careful, this is an important choice. >>30427404I guess about Mr. Scrya... or your family and friends.
>>30427404It's mostly because while Curren is understanding about that sort of thing. Our TSAB friends haven't heard word from us since before this quest began. Needless to say those guys tend to do unnecessarily obstructive things when we leave them alone.That and this would put us in a bad spot with Mira, Yuuno, Isis, Vivo, Ein and Nanaha.Rather we deal with there bureaucracy crap for a session then have them sick a enraged enforcer or the white devil on us for being an A-rank criminal and a lying bastard.
>>30427424Well another recomendation, if you guys do not know what to do, try asking Curren what she thinks you should join her/not join the TSAB... maybe she might tell you something important.
>>30427540Well, even if we have an eye witness we didn't kill Scrya, getting arrested for terrorism is generally worse than getting arrested for murder and harder to vindicate yourself from. It will be a pain in the ass if we turn ourselves in.>>30427550If you're going to give free hints, then I guess.
>>30427566Well for the sake of fairness, if Tohma was captured, he would be treated like Lily, placed into Custody of Section 6- Nanoha, Su-chan and Co, and probably be given the chance to join them. You might have some others options also from there, like Steed. And that is my last hint for today.
>>30427550"Curren, In you opinion as Best Girl, what do you think I should do?">>30427566We already have a completely valid explanation for that and the TSAB will except it. Besides we aren't just some nobody. Tohma Avenir does have some credibility.
>>30427619>SteedIs Steed still with us? I totally forgot about our buddy with all this HOLMCROSS/ Enforcer/ Grendel business.
>>30427619You know, these feel less like hints and more like you're trying to tell me I'm looking at this quest the wrong way. Since I never actually looked deep enough into the Nanoha series, it isn't too effective, though.
>>30427630"Why, you know what I would say, come and join me, I can promise you to respect your freedom unlike the TSAB. But for the sake of fairness, joining the TSAB now would not be a bad idea, it would help clear you of your criminal status and they might use their connections to help you find answers faster... maybe!" At this she pulls her tongue out at you, and just flashes you a grin. "Still, I believe that I am the best option, while I can understand why you would wish to join the TSAB, I promise you that I can help you control that virus in you, unlike the TSAB and I can tell you the origins of that girl and the Silver Cross you were burdened with... and more importantly, if you join me, I will tell you about what I know of the mines of Vaizen!" You... >Join her!>Wait for the TSAB. >Other.Also>Thank her for everything, she is kind. >Do not say anything>Other>>30427655Steed is with you, the problem is that he runs on your magic, and you kinda do not have any with you right now. So he is kinda empty. >>30427664MMm, one thing to now is that this quest isn't as grim as you think, it can and will get ugly, but there is always hope, if you can dig for it!
>>30427740Belkan, how do you think Ricardo would react if we asked Curren to look after him.They may incude some of our friends but I don't trust the TSAB around HOLMCROSS in general.
>>30427740>>30427802Another way of asking this is. "Just how crazy are the Huckebein family?" Enough to trigger JOKERS 'Kill evil EC' tendencies?
>>30427802Best Girl is Best Girl, but she does not make miracles. At this point, it could go about half-half, depending on how Curren manages her CHAR rolls when Ricardo wakes up. The worse case would be that Curren would be forced to get serious with the White Machine, and use one of her Infinity- attacks.
>>30427740>>30427859Then let's ask Curren what she thinks we should do about the Machine Siblings.
>>30427892Okay, writting... but this is the last question Curren will answer, she has no more time bro.
>>30427980Got ya. Thanks for putting up with it.
>>30427980“Curren, what should we do about Ricardo?” You point at the white machine near you, it is still unconscious, knocked out from your punch! “We can’t let the TSAB capture it, not when it has weapons that can cast magic that can’t be delinked.”“A Mage Killer Killer eh… how interesting, but if you ask my opinion… just kill it!” What… “You said it yourself, this thing is something that can help the TSAB fight our kind more effectively; then it makes sense to just get rid of that thing.” “But… I do not want to kill it, I feel that I can… understand it” It was weird of you to say that of something that just tried to kill you, but it and you were not that diferent, you felt that if you just had more time… that machine could have understood you.“Tohma…” Curren smiles at you sadly, as if foreseeing a future tragedy that will destroy you, “you can’t save everything.” You knew that, but it was because of that… “Even though you have so much power, one day you will be forced to choose, what to save, what to protect, and what you will have to discard. Tohma, this world is not fair, I am sure you above all know that.”You knew that, you lived that, but Su-chan… she showed you that everyone can be saved, that there always was hope. “I still want to try, Ms. Curren.”
>>30428205“He, well then just bring it with us when you join us, I am sure that between you and me we can handle that tincan, be it with words or just kicking it around until it stops, or you can give it to its sister machine, I am sure that thing can handle their retreat, one way or another.” That did not give you many options, but you decided to…>Leave the White Machine there, it can handle itself>Kill it now.>Take it with you,>Have Curren take it, even if you do not join her.>Give it to the other machine, maybe they can escape together. >Wake it up?>Other“Well, then Tohma, we do not have any time left, please make your decision, do you come with me or not. Do you join me or leave yourself at the mercy of the TSAB, please choose, my dear raven.” You feel that she would be fine with either path, but…>You will go with her… to find the truth she knows. >You will stay here, you promised Mira and want to see Mr. Scrya. Also…>Thank her for being so kind to you, she is very helpful>Do not thank her… say nothing. >OtherThis is the final choice... make it count! No more questions.
>>30428235What's the difference between leaving the White Machine, and getting it to the other machine?Wouldn't they just retreat either way?Or does just leaving White Machine means it's a toss-up between Curren or TSAB getting them or something?
>>30428282>No more questionsIt probably depends on what the Black Machine does. Of course, I still want to kill it, but we can't take it with us if decide to go with the TSAB.
>>30428282Leaving it alone means that it stays there on the floor, K.O.ed. Free for anyone to take it. If the Black Machine recovers it or the TSAB does... well only the dice knows.
>>30428235>>Give it to the other machine, maybe they can escape together.>You will stay here, you have business with the TSAB>Thank her for being so kind to you, she is very helpful"Thank you Curren, you really are Best Girl."
>>30428330Okay, thanks.Well in that case, I'm >>30428282 only going to vote to go with the TSAB. Unsure on the others so I'm just voting for that one.
>>30427858>"Just how crazy is the Huckebein family?"Well, make no mistake, the Huckebein are high class criminals and killers. The sort of killers that won't hesitate to kill if needed, but at the same time they are the sort of killers that only kill when they need to. They will avoid bloodshed if they can, but at the same time will not hesitate to shed blood if needed. As a high Red Organization, they are the sort that only care for themselves and their family, which includes you for now. They are not saints, but there is a method to their slaughter, and are willing to avoid fights that they might not win, like with the whole TSAB. They tend to work as mercenaries on the frontier worlds of the TSAB space, using those jobs to kill and control their virus. If you joined them, you could make them softer or even crueler killers... in a way it would depend on you.
>>30428401Well, the vote seems to favor the TSAB. I said I wasn't fond of it, but giving white machine to black machine is better than the alternative. Thanking is fine.
>>30428467Well, if it makes you happier you still have Steed, I am sure he has something that could help you. So, just to ask again, the final choices are....>Give White Machine to Black>Wait for the TSAB!>Thank Best Girl... right?
>>30428481That's good with me.
>>30428481Regarding the white machine… “I want to give it to the other machine, I think that would be best.” “Are you sure, one day this thing could come and try to kill you again, what will you do if it happens, Tohma?” That was a hard question Ms. Curren but…“I will handle it when it happens, but I do not think that he and I will fight again…” You feel that you could get this HOLMCROSS to understand you, maybe. “Eh, it is your choice, but my little raven, I must ask you to answer my question, will you join me?” This was a hard one, and you could not stall for more time. So you decide to be honest with her, she was someone who was deserved nothing but that.“I am sorry…” you do not know what exactly to say but… “I will stay here, I still have business to settle with the TSAB.” You would not run from your responsibilities to them, and what is more, you promised the Enforcer Mira that you would settle your score with her. “I see,” Miss Curren closes her eyes before giving you a sad smile, “in a way I expected that you would choose them, but I can understand why you chose to do so. Anyhow, Tohma, if you ever change your mind, me and the Huckebein family will receive you with open arms.” >[1/?]
>>30428744You disliked it, making this woman sad, why did rejecting her hurt so much? “Thanks Miss Curren, you have been very kind to me, and helpful too. You are truly the best!” That was a honest opinion, something that came easily from your heart, too easily. “Why you flatterer, you sure know how to charm a girl’s heart! <3,” Miss Curren winks at you, and you feel your heart skip several beats, “but I am glad to hear that from you…” Miss Curren moves towards the fallen White Machine and picks it up with one arm, “Well, I will help you and take this to the black machine, consider it a favor from your older sister, Curren Huckebein.”With the black machine in tow, black energy starts to gather around Miss Curren, and she drops her last words, “Tohma… be careful about the TSAB. They…Part of them… were involved in the development of the Eclipse Virus and those who perform those experiments.” Curren smiles sadly at this, as if telling you this is hurting her physically, “I would know, after all long ago, I too was part of the TSAB.” >Infinity Step! In a black flash she disappears… leaving you with more questions and no answers. >[2/?]
>>30428760It takes about three minutes for the next person to arrive near you, but you were expecting her. Lily was sleeping within you, tired from having to force herself to react to you, but you did not mind, this was a private thing, just between her and you. She came clad in white steel, shields that would stop your attacks, weapons that could hurt even you, and most importantly with hate- for you and your crimes. That was fine to you, you hated her also so you are not surprised when you soon meet the pointed end of a plasma rifle to your back. “Tohma Avenir, you are you are under arrest for charges of breaking and entering, bioterrorism, the unlawful use of mass weapons, the destruction of both public and private property, the assault on the Librarian of the Infinite Library, my friend Yuuno Scrya…” All of those were claims you could fight but…“...and worst of all, making Vivo cry!” That was a crime you could never clear, you consciousness will never allow it. “Turn yourself in or I will blast you, with no mercy. Do you understand?” This devil will give you no choice, she is not the type to play, so you will do as she says. “Yeah, crystal clear, I turn myself in, Miss. Public Officer. “You raise you hands meekly, giving yourself up. Why hello there, Miss. White Devil.Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea…>Nanoha FORCE Part 8: Black and White (I) END>ARC 1: Lonely Stray Bird ENDNext Arc: Soldier Dream!>Stay here for the morality gains, and to score the exp.

>>30428984Well this concludes the first part of Nanoha FORCE Quest, and now we can start our next Arc and see how deep the rabbit hole called Eclipse goes, Like before, I will answer one single question about anything as a prize for you guys, make it worth it. Also if you guys have regular questions or comments on how I can improve, please tell me them. What do you think of the quest so far? Was it fun? Also I am not hesitant to answer normal question about the Quest, while I am here.
>>30429022> one single questionI have one but I'll wait to see if any one else wants to go at it.>regular questionsThis might have to be re-asked as a special question depending n how you answer it.Every time someone makes a reference to Hade's daughter and Grey actions you say that her fate has changed and she's just a cute girl who wants to give hugs.Problem is you always say it in the same cute way so I'm not sure if you're being serious. Are you?
>>30429158Well, I will give a vague answer as a regular question, Hade's daughter had a sad, cruel fate, but in those 6 weeks you were in a viral coma, you were essential in changing her fate. Now her fate is tied to yours. But yeah, she now wants to give you tons of hugs and do normal things.
>>30429179Well that a relief. I felt bad being terrified of such a cute girl.Your quest is fun Belkan. Although, the sessions are a bit hard when the quest runs into the 7-10 hour range. Though that may just be the players fault for making slow decisions. Regardless the occasional long running times are the only issue I have.
>>30429351I am trying to run shorter quests, it is not always possible. Well, will go to sleep, unless you want to use the question and know what is the real deal with Hades' daughter?
>>30429380What are our possible Harem combinations. <_<Or rather, what's a guide to show what is and is not possible.
>>30433851That... is a really good question, one that is kinda hard to answer.But for a harem... the most probably route is something like Tohma/Vivio/Ein.Most of the girls are available, but well... good luck getting them to agree to share, that is going to be hard, in it self. Other available routes for Harem could be...Huckebein Harrem?Isis/Lily + Other HaremCombat Cyborg Harem?Material Harem?and some more... To be honest, at this point it is better to concentrate in surviving and the plot. Maybe.
>>30433986I hate spoilers, so no plot questions. c:
>>30434484No other question? How about stuff that has happened so far? Did you need me to answer a question about past events or about the setting.
>>30434512Would a badly drawn map of locations in the series as they're relative to each-other and some minor description okay?Like where do Hade's and Not!Crystal Devil live in respects to the planet we're on now? Or does section 6 have an actual base or do they just float around in a space ship until they're needed?
>>30434717Hades and his cute daughter totally not!C.Devil live in AW#1 Mid Childia, and the main base for Section 6 is in a planet called Vaizen, your hometown. They just tend to use their ship to mobilize around. Just for the record, we are in Administrated World # 23, Ruwella. Any other questions? I will try to make a list of locations for the next thread.
